The Preview Reel: Horizon Promising for Burton

5 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to another “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide-release movies. After a somewhat disappointing start for The Magnificent Seven and Storks last weekend, this week looks to pick things up with three very different wide-release offerings. We have the true-story environmental disaster flick Deepwater Horizon, the return of Tim Burton with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and the much delayed comedy Masterminds. Let’s see if any of these are worth your time.

  Deepwater Horizon

What we are excited about:

The last time Mark Wahlberg starred in a movie directed Peter Berg was in the terrific and gripping Lone Survivor. The two are teaming up again (and will do so once again later this year in Patriot’s Day) for another true story survival pic in Deepwater Horizon. If they are able to bring the same amount of passion and respect they brought to Lone Survivor, »

Miss Peregrine’S Home For Peculiar Children – Review

7 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’S Home For Peculiar Children is the director’s freshest and most original film in years, while still being entirely within the director’s wheelhouse of quirky, colorful, and mysterious movies. In this new creative direction, Burton offers a more mature, even serious tone, and less of his signature over-the-top silly quirk, in this tale of a teenage boy and his beloved grandfather, who raised him on tales of a mysterious, hidden home for “peculiar” children – that is, children with special powers such as levitation or invisibility, and run by kindly but strict Miss Peregrine.

The film is a departure for Burton, and fans expecting the usual mix of oddball darkness and humor may feel let down by this more mature film. In one way, it is a return to his early work, Edward Scissorhands, with »

Could Doctor Strange Lead To The Big Screen Debut Of The Ultimate Universe?

11 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel introduced comic book fans to the Ultimate Universe back in 2000, but could Doctor Strange‘s exploration of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s multiverse lead to that alternate reality being brought to the big screen? Based on some new comments from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, it certainly sounds like a very real possibility.

First though, some background. The Ultimate Universe was a world much closer to our own, and it reimagined the early years of characters like The Avengers (now known as The Ultimates) and Spider-Man in some drastically different ways. Some of what those comics did has already been seen on the big screen – Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury for example – but could the heroes and villains we’ve come to know in the McU find their way to an alternate reality similar to this one?

Here’s what Feige had to say about exactly that:

Movie Review – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, 2016.

Directed by Tim Burton.

Starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.

Synopsis:

Following a family tragedy, lonely teenager Jake decides to travel to Wales in order to search for answers that his grandfather has told him can be found at Miss Peregrine’s children’s home.

Welcome to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and possibly one of the most – superficially, at least – perfect partnerships in film of the past few years: that of director Tim Burton and source material author Ransom Riggs. Stuffed with odd-ball occurrences, period splendour, spindly villains and his usual gothic flair, Miss Peregrine is a Burton-stamped production from the very beginning, even with the story beginning in the exotic climes of Florida.

Jake (the eminently watchable Butterfield) is a typical »

Tim Burton on Lack of Diversity in ‘Miss Peregrine’: ‘Things Either Call for Things, or They Don’t’

13 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tim Burton offered a vague explanation of the lack of people of color in the ensemble cast of “Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children,” the adaptation of Ransom Riggs’ best-seller of the same name that hits theaters this weekend.

“Nowadays, people are talking about it more,” Burton told Bustle in response to a question about the lack of diversity. “Things either call for things, or they don’t. I remember back when I was a child watching ‘The Brady Bunch’ and they started to get all politically correct, like, ‘Okay, let’s have an Asian child and a black’ – I used to get more offended by that than just – I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right? And I said, that’s great. I didn’t go like, ‘Okay, there should be more white people in these movies.'”

'Miss Peregrine', 'Deepwater Horizon' and 'Masterminds' Close Out September

15 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

When compared to last year, September 2016 has been a bit of a rough and tumble month. While there have been a pair of $30+ million openers, there have also been more than a fair share of disappointments. This weekend closes out the month with two new big budget releases in the form of Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and Peter Berg's Deepwater Horizon, both hoping to make a case for their price tag while the long-delayed ensemble comedy Masterminds finally hits theaters after enduring six release date changes over the past 18 months. Overall, the weekend is once again looking to underperform compared to the same weekend last year, which saw The Martian top the box office with $54 million. At the top, Tim Burton returns to work at Fox for the first time since 2001's Planet of the Apes remake and he does so with Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, »

Tim Burton offered a strange excuse for the lack of diversity in 'Miss Peregrine'

15 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the weekend, Tim Burton’s adaptation of the novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by author Ransom Riggs hits theaters. Reviews are tepid but not 2016 summer blockbuster bad. With its PG-13 rating and lack of significant demographic competition at the cinema, the box office draw could be decent. All that has to happen is for no one involved in the film to say something horrible and/or racist. Dammit, Tim Burton! When speaking to The Bustle about Miss Peregrine, the topic of on-screen diversity came up. After all, with the exception of Samuel L. Jackson as the villainous Barron, the film is very white. Tim Burton had…words…to say: “Nowadays, people are talking about it more […]things either call for things, or they don’t. I remember back when I was a child watching The Brady Bunch and they started to get all politically correct, like, »

Marvel Head Honcho Kevin Feige Weighs In On McU’s Use Of Doppelgänger Villains

Cast your mind back to the formative years of the McU and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man, at a time when talk of a shared cinematic space was reserved for end-credits and subsequently channelled through Samuel L. Jackson’s glowering Nick Fury.

It was here that Marvel introduced Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark to the moviegoing masses, a character who would very much go on to become the anchor point of this most successful of cinematic universes. An instant hit with fans, Rdj’s portrayal of Marvel’s genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist was effortless at times, spewing smart quips even when doing battle with former friend and business partner, Obadiah Stane (Aka the Iron Monger).

Indeed, by the time we reached the finale of Favreau’s actioner, Tony Stark was ostensibly waging war against his doppelgänger, and it »

Nyff 2016: 7 New Documentaries To See at The Festival

18 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The New York Film Festival kicks off this week, sending us straight into the second half of a very busy fall festival season. In preparation for the festival, we’re rolling out a series of previews to point you in the direction of all the movies you have to see (or at least, all the movies you have to start anticipating right now). Today, some highlights of the always-robust documentary slate.

“Bright Lights”

Chronicling the often-fraught — but always loving — relationship between Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, Alexis Bloom and Fisher Stevens’ “Bright Lights” is intimate and affectionate in a way that few documentaries can be. Our own David Ehrlich reviewed the film out of Cannes, where he wrote: “The film is strikingly open from the start, as an opening flurry of home video footage from Fisher’s childhood hints at the degree of access that has been granted to co-directors Fisher Stevens and Alexis Bloom. »

'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' Review: Tim Burton Returns

22 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Tim Burton is a wizard of odd. The best of his films take us into a world where anything is possible ... but the impossible is even better. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, based on Ransom Rigg's 2011 young-adult novel, is so crowded with incident that it sometimes seems in danger of imploding. But Burton has always had an affinity for the peculiar. so how could he resist Miss Peregrine? As played by the bracingly eccentric Eva Green (the Penny Dreadful star who worked with Burton in 2012's Dark Shadows), Miss »

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children review: Has Tim Burton returned to form with this adaptation of the 2011 novel by American author Ransom Riggs?

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children review by Luke Ryan Baldock.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children review

Tim Burton has certainly had a tumultuous time in his film career. Being picked from near obscurity to direct Batman after a two bonkers directorial features and animating at Disney, he has seesawed between just about every imaginable form of adaptation. From his ill fated reimagining of Planet of the Apes, his own take on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, a sequel of sorts to Alice in Wonderland, and even an animated remake of one of his own shorts, no matter what the final product he always has his own style. Now he jumps into his first Ya adaptation, a genre that »

Samuel L. Jackson Reveals the Similarities Between Quentin Tarantino and Tim Burton’s Directing Styles

28 September 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Samuel L. Jackson has worked with almost everyone at this point in his career. He most recently added Tim Burton to that list with “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” an adaptation of the young-adult novel by Ransom Riggs. The actor’s unexpected takeaway from the experience is that the “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Ed Wood” director is “very Quentin [Tarantino]-like” in his approach to filmmaking.

“It’s incumbent on you to come in there as precise and as sure as you want to do as [he is],” Jackson eleborated during the “Miss Peregrine” premiere on Monday night. “But still he expects you to come and create something that’s as unique and visual as what he’s doing.” The actor has worked with Tarantino a number of times, »

Exclusive: Asa Butterfield talks Spider-Man, superheroes and the DC Extended Universe

Before Tom Holland was announced as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man for Captain America: Civil War and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming, fellow Brit Asa Butterfield was frequently mentioned as one of the front-runners for the role, with certain rumour sites even going as far as to claim on several occasions that he’d been cast [see here and here].

Flickering Myth’s Scott Davis caught up with Asa this week to discuss his new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, during which he shared his thoughts on portraying a superhero, and revealed that he’s more of a DC fan, and would love to appear in the DC Extended Universe. Here’s an excerpt from the interview. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the full thing.

Samuel L. Jackson talks his creepy character in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Consider, for a moment, the walking, talking (and talking, and talking) literary archive that is Samuel L. Jackson.

The 67-year-old actor, who has more than 160 film and TV productions under his belt, has also brought a veritable library worth of books to life on the big screen, including works by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park), John Grisham (A Time to Kill), Stephen King (1408, Cell) and Edgar Rice Burroughs (The Legend of Tarzan), not to mention multiple passes at comic book great Stan Lee — Jackson plays S.H.I.E.L.D. honcho Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He even lent his incomparable swearing skills to the audio version of the bestselling children’s book parody Go the F--k to Sleep. »

[Review] Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

28 September 2016 8:37 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Tim Burton provides such a distinct look, feel, and texture to every one of his films — regardless of how you might feel about them — that he’s very much a genre unto himself. Taking a heavy influence from landmark German Expressionist films, he’s pioneering this generation’s brand of wacky, dark-tinged cinema as his creations have danced across the screen for more than a quarter of a century. Yet, as we’ve seen in his recent efforts, a little too much creative freedom — as in all of it — can yield the most unwieldy or disastrous of narratives. For his latest effort, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the eccentric director gets to do what he does best: play in his macabre sandbox with endless whimsy and delight at his fingertips.

A mostly winning combination of the strange and unusual, the adventure is an entertaining, clever, and fun one. »

The Weekend Warrior 9/30/2016: Deepwater Horizon, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Masterminds

28 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

 While the new movies reigned at the box office this past weekend, both Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven (Sony) and the animated Storks (Warner Bros.) didn’t fare nearly as well as our projections, both falling short by about $10 million. The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, fared decently with $34.7million, which is about the average for Washington’s films, but the fourth highest opening for a Western after last year’s The Revenant, the animated Rango, and Cowboys and Aliens. Storks’ $21.3 million opening wasn’t great compared to other animated September releases with Sony still holding the September opening record with Hotel Transylvania 2, but it should continue to do well with no other animated movies opening for another month. »
