Film Review: ‘Misconduct’

4 February 2016 11:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Faint echoes of decades-old thrillers as diverse as “Fatal Attraction” and “Presumed Innocent” abound through “Misconduct,” a flagrantly derivative but modestly diverting drama of the sort that once claimed acres of shelf space at Blockbuster outlets. Anthony Hopkins and Al Pacino saunter through the proceedings while picking up easy paychecks and providing marquee allure, but it’s up to the top-billed Josh Duhamel to do most of the heavy lifting in this neo-noir scenario about an ambitious lawyer who bends the rules during litigation against a corrupt pharmaceutical tycoon, only to become entangled in at least two conspiracies.  Limited theatrical play will be a mere formality, as is usually the case for such VOD-ready fare.

Duhamel plays Ben Cahill, a corner-cutting up-and-comer at a New Orleans law firm who’s worried about his wife, Charlotte (Alice Eve), a registered nurse who recently suffered a miscarriage, and now appears to be channeling her grief into workaholism. »

Wrap-Ranker Poll: All-Time Best Actors Who Have Won an Oscar

3 February 2016 12:47 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Tom Hanks is one of two actors, including Spencer Tracy, to win consecutive Best Actor Oscars (“Philadelphia” and “Forrest Gump”). He is certainly one of the best actors of his generation, but is he the best? Anthony Hopkins terrified the world with his sinister Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” nabbing the Best Actor trophy despite only spending 12 minutes on screen. He will live on in film history as one of the best villains of all time, but does he top all actors? Sidney Poitier became the first African-American to win Best Actor for “Lilies of the Field. »

Watch Josh Duhamel and Malin Akerman Flirt with Infidelity in This Steamy Clip from Misconduct

2 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Witness two people who need a cold shower, stat. Josh Duhamel and Malin Akerman might be portraying two people (sort of) innocently having drinks together, but their body language says so much more. Way more. In this exclusive clip from Misconduct, Duhamel's character, Ben, opens up to Akerman's character, Emily, about the state of his marriage - and it isn't good.

Nicolas Winding Refn Teams With Bond Writers, Liam Neeson is Jaume Collet-Serra’s ‘The Commuter,’ and More

1 February 2016 12:41 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We’re still all awaiting Nicolas Winding Refn’s highly anticipated female-centric horror thriller The Neon Demon with bated breath, but he’s already gearing up for his next movie, which will reportedly have an Asian setting, and feature action and thriller elements. Details are skim, but it’s also been reported that Refn will be teaming up with the primary screenwriters of the last five James Bond films – Neal Purvis and Robert wade. Who knows? Maybe this could just be the ramp-up to an announcement that this will be the next Bond film, or it could be his long-rumored The Avenging Silence.

After last year’s frenetic Run All Night, star Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra are already reuniting for another movie – their fourth collaboration. Collet-Serra will begin work on The Commuter, an action thriller following a businessman who becomes tangled in a criminal conspiracy on his daily commute, »

'Thor 3: Ragnarok' Will Have a Much Smarter, Verbal Hulk

1 February 2016 11:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Marvel kicks off its enormous Phase Three slate this summer with Captain America: Civil War, almost all of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe characters will be present, except two, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). These characters will be reuniting next year in Thor: Ragnarok, which will take them both on a "cosmic road trip." Director Taika Waititi recently spoke with Hitfix, where he teased that they're considering how "verbal" the Hulk should be and that he'll be much smarter this time around.

"It's interesting, because at the moment, there's a big conversation that's happening about how far to push that. Whether or not The Hulk should be [verbal/conscious]. I think a lot of those conversations have more to do with what's going to come up in future movies. So I think a lot of those decisions are larger group decisions, rather than anything to do with just me or the writer. »

Ranking the Oscar-Nominated Performances in Steven Spielberg's Films

1 February 2016 11:20 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Mark Rylance’s best supporting actor nomination for Bridge of Spies marks the 13th time a performance in a Steven Spielberg movie has been nominated for an Oscar. Which of course calls for a list, so without any further ado here's Murtada's ranking. 

Oscar Nominated Performances in Spielberg Films Ranked

13- Anthony Hopkins - Amistad (1997)

Other Nominees: Robert ForsterJackie Brown, Greg KinnearAs Good as It Gets, Burt Reynolds – Boogie Nights, Robin WilliamsGood Will Hunting.

Winner: Williams

Did Hopkins have a big righteous courtroom speech? Must be, because why else was this performance nominated. The only thing I remember about it is that Hopkins robbed Rupert Everett of his nomination for My Best Friend’s Wedding.

Twelve more after the jump...

Will Volstagg Return in 'Thor: Ragnarok'?

1 February 2016 6:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Thor: Ragnarok set to start production this summer in Australia, there have been no shortage of rumors swirling around the project over the past few weeks. A report surfaced last week that the villain of this story is Hela, who may be portrayed by Cate Blanchett. And we also know that Mark Ruffalo is returning as Hulk. Ray Stevenson, who played Volstagg in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, recently revealed in an interview with Geeks Worldwide that he still isn't sure yet if he is returning as this character.

"I'm still in the dark in regards to that, but I'm absolutely blown away to be apart of something that so influential and integral in a part of our generation in regards to movie watching and this Marvel Universe. Its absolutely incredible and if there's a place for Volstagg then great, but right now I don't know. He was great to play. »

Expect A Smarter Hulk In "Thor: Ragnarok"

31 January 2016 10:19 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Some more comments from Taika Waititi at the Sundance Film Festival are in with the filmmaker discussing one aspect of the "Thor: Ragnarok" production that hasn't been talked about before now - namely how smart and verbose he intends to make the green meanie in the film.

Waititi tells Hitfix that the topic is in discussions right now and that it also ties in with the "Avengers: Infinity War" saga with the director implying Marvel wants to go that route in those films:

"It's interesting, because at the moment, there's a big conversation that's happening about how far to push that. Whether or not The Hulk should be [verbal/conscious]... I think a lot of those conversations have more to do with what's going to come up in future movies.

Harrison Ford, Natalie Dormer, and Anthony Hopkins Are Starring in a Spy Thriller Crucial to Many Future Rounds of Six Degrees of Separation

28 January 2016 7:51 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Did you think Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy had too many lead characters and also too many British spies? You are wrong. Also, this is not the movie for you! Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Dormer, Paul Bettany, and Martin Freeman have joined the cast of Official Secrets, which will apparently be one of those spy movies where you give up on remembering all the characters' names in the first 15 minutes. Based on Marcia Mitchell's book, The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War, the film centers on Katharine Gun (Dormer), a British Intelligence officer who leaked information to the press about an alleged Nsa operation to push the U.N. to sanction the invasion of Iraq. Bettany and Freeman will play journalists at the London Observer, while Hopkins will be a retired U.K. general (so basically himself), and Ford will play a CIA agent. Official Secrets starts filming in May. »
