Olivia Wilde, Tina Fey, and More of the Leading Ladies From Tribeca Film Festival: Reviews!

5 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

James Franco got high. Luke Wilson cried. Ethan Hawke killed innocent people. Suffice to say, things took a turn for the deadly serious in downtown NYC for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Good thing these talented and strong actresses were onhand to save the day. Here's Us Weekly movie critic Mara Reinstein's take:  Olivia Wilde: At the outset of Meadowland, she’s the Wilde we’ve come to love: Sunny and caring. But after her son goes missing at a gas station, she dives head-first into a black hole [...] »

“Mad Max: Fury Road”: Ten Films to Look Forward to in May

24 April 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

With the end of April upon us next week, I wanted to turn our attention to May and the cinematic treats that might be held there. It’s essentially the start of the summer movie season, so there’s a slight turn that takes place in terms of what comes out. There are a few less notable indies, while the mainstream titles veer towards blockbuster status. In fact, a nice grouping of the biggest Hollywood smash hit hopefuls are hitting in May. You’ll see the ones below, clearly, but I tried to mix it up, going from tiny indie horror to massive comic book franchise sequel, with plenty in between. Enjoy! Here are ten May releases to anticipate… 10. The Ladies of the House – A small independent horror film from John Stuart Wildman and Justina Walford, it offers a welcome throwback to the days of exploitation. I feel like Russ Meyer »

Exclusive: Ethan Hawke Prepares To BBQ In Clip From 'Good Kill'

24 April 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Wake up, take a shower, get dressed, go to work, fly some drones that kill some targets overseas from the comfort of a military base thousands of miles away, go home —it's the new reality of warfare. In Andrew Niccol's "Good Kill," the subject is explored with Ethan Hawke in the lead role as a man who must grapple with the cutting edge of how the "War on Terror" is presently waged. Co-starring January Jones, Zoe Kravitz and Bruce Greenwood, the film tells the story of an air combat veteran who enacts the same kind of missions he used to from the sky but now in front of a console on the ground. As you'll see in this clip, it makes his life somewhat surreal, with his day of hunting down the Taliban capped off with a BBQ at home. "Good Kill" screened at the Tribeca Film Festival this »

Céline Sciamma interview: step aside 'Boyhood', it's 'Girlhood' time

24 April 2015 5:51 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

It wasn’t shot over 12 years. It doesn’t star Ethan Hawke. And it hasn’t been snubbed at the Oscars. But Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood does feel like a sister movie to a certain other study of adolescence with a very similar title – as its director herself agrees. “It could be the Boyhood of black girls,” proclaims Sciamma, without a hint of bandwagon-jumping. Focused on a girl gang in the suburbs or banlieues of north-west Paris, it is a coming-of-age tale every bit as vital as Richard Linklater’s epic project. »

Voltage Pictures hires John Fremes

24 April 2015 | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

John Fremes has joined Voltage Pictures as president of international sales and distribution and will report to president and COO Jonathan Deckter.

Fremes arrives from Nu Image / Millennium and replaces Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard, who is transitioning into a production deal with Nicolas Chartier’s company and to that effect will be on set in Ireland for John Moore’s I.T. starring Pierce Brosnan.

For the last three years Fremes served as president of international sales and distribution at Nu Image / Millennium, where he sold titles like Expendables 2 and 3, Olympus Has Fallen, Homefront and the upcoming London Has Fallen and Mechanic: Resurrection.

Voltage has also brought in Scott Bedno from Spotlight Pictures as vice-president of international sales. Bedno, along with Voltage’s international sales coordinator Mike Quinn, will report directly to Fremes.

The moves underscores Chartier’s plans to ramp at the company up after he brought in Deckter as partner last month.

Sony officially announces sequel to The Equalizer

23 April 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Based on the classic 80’s TV show of the same name, The Equalizer big screen remake hit theatres back in September 2014 and grossed approximately $192 million at the box office. Now Sony has officially announced a sequel is in the works.

It’s expected that Denzel Washington – who plays main tough guy Robert McCall – will reprise his role although it’s unknown whether director Antoine Fuqua will return. Fuqua and Washington will next work with each other on the remake of the 1960 classic western The Magnificent Seven which also stars Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) Ethan Hawke (Boyhood) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil) and has a tentative release for January 2017.

The first movie surprisingly did a lot better than Sony had thought it would and received mostly positive reviews. Rumblings of a possible sequel began to emerge even before the film’s official release so it’s no surprise Sony have decided to cash in. »

D.P. Amir Mokri Fills in the Blanks With Imagination

23 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For someone who has made his career working on big blockbuster films like “Transformers,” “Man of Steel” and “Fast & Furious,” cinematographer Amir Mokri prefers watching slightly less-explosive pics.

“I like to watch dramas,” he says. “It’s funny because I work on these big movies, but they’re not things that I go and watch. I like dramas that are about humor and interaction.”

Mokri’s latest project, “Pixels,” stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Josh Gad and provides a fair dose of funny. A live-action crossover with CGI videogame characters, it relies on visual effects, which are in Mokri’s wheelhouse. But filming without all the elements that ultimately appear on screen comes with its own challenges.

“You have to use your imagination to fill in the blanks,” says Mokri, Variety’s Creative Impact in Cinematography honoree who will participate in a Master Class panel at the Newport Beach »

Tribeca Review: New York Comedy is Rarely More Scathing Than Onur Tukel's 'Applesauce'

23 April 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Tribeca: Watch Indiewire Talk to Ethan Hawke, Taylor Schilling, Olivia Wilde and More at the Apple Store "This is the reason our culture is in the shitter," says writer-director-star Onur Tukel in his very funny New York comedy "Applesauce," and that may as well be the mantra of the movie. The Turkish-American filmmaker is no stranger to acerbic satire, having most recently poked fun at urban struggles with the outrageous vampire comedy "Summer of Blood." The riotous approach still has teeth in "Applesauce," and while they don't dig quite as deep, Tukel's script about a quartet of self-involved New Yorkers still has plenty of bite. With a trimmer beard and a slightly less offensive demeanor than his bottom-feeder character in "Summer of Blood," Tukel's Ron Welz lives a somewhat more stable life, but that doesn't last long. As the movie begins, the garrulous high school teacher calls into »

Sony Issues Green Light For The Equalizer 2

23 April 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Long before it pummelled its way onto the silver screen, Sony Pictures ensured its ducks were in a row for The Equalizer. With genre stalwart Denzel Washington on board as the titular vigilante (real name Robert McCall) not to mention Training Day‘s Antoine Fuqua behind the lens, the studio served up a thriller that was as entertaining as it was efficient, checking all the right boxes for an action flick and bringing in an impressive box office haul to the tune of $192 million.

Generic though it may have been, Sony’s adaptation proved to be relatively successful, and now the company is pushing ahead with The Equalizer 2, a direct follow-up to last year’s actioner. That’s according to Collider, who report that the studio has every intention of massaging the property into a franchise with Washington at the helm.

Currently, both Washington and Fuqua have their hands »

Riviera Maya Film Festival Brings Best of the Fests to Mexico

23 April 2015 6:14 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In three Mexican cities along the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo, the Riviera Maya Film Festival launches its annual program of free screenings for the public. Most theaters in the region screen commercial films, but Rmff believes that people deserve to see other kinds of movies, and so the festival brings films from many of the heavy hitters: Cannes, Toronto, Berlin and Venice among them. Riviera Maya has managed to attract some starry talent, too. And why not? It's in a temperate environment, away from the flash bulbs of Hollywood. Last year the red carpet rolled out for Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and in the past the festival has recruited Ethan Hawke, Clive Owen, Susan Sarandon, Patricia Arquette, Stephen Dorff, Vanessa Hudgens and Christian Slater. The festival also has its own Lab, which bolsters emerging independent film projects and invites "work-in-progress" screenings, giving filmmakers a chance »

Wagner Moura joins The Magnificent Seven remake

23 April 2015 5:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Brazilian star Wagner Moura has landed a plum role in The Magnificent Seven, MGM’s remake of the 1960 film.

Antoine Fuqua (The Equalizer) directs the film, which stars his Equalizer actors Denzel Washington and Haley Bennett, as well as Chris Pratt (Jurassic World), Ethan Hawke (Boyhood), Luke Grimes (American Sniper) and Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil).

Moura is set to play Vasquez, one of the titular Seven, and sets MGM up for some decent South American box office, where the actor has a very sizeable fan base. Previously, Moura has featured in Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium and the award-winning Elite Squad.

Written by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) and Nic Pizzolatto (True Detective), the story kicks off when a woman (Bennett) hires a disparate group of gunslingers to protect her town from rampaging bandits. The 1960 film, which itself was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Japanese-language film Seven Samurai, »

Denzel Washington’s ‘The Equalizer’ to Get Sequel

22 April 2015 7:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony has officially announced a sequel to the Denzel Washington thriller “The Equalizer.”

Rumors of an “Equalizer” follow-up began months before the R-rated auctioneer opened in September, but it was the film’s strong box office results and home entertainment sales that ultimately pulled the trigger on the second installment.

Washington is expected to reprise his role as vigilante Robert McCall in “Equalizer 2.” Chloe Moretz and Marton Csokas co-starred in the original.

Based on the 1980s TV series, “The Equalizer” earned over $192 million at the global box office last year. It was co-financed by Village Roadshow and debuted at the Toronto Film Festival.

Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) directed the first “Equalizer.” It’s unknown whether he’ll return for the sequel. He and Washington are next re-teaming on MGM’s remake of “Magnificent Seven,” which reunites the duo with “Training Day” actor Ethan Hawke.

Sony also announced a new “Spider-Man »
