Gary Oldman Has a Good Laugh Watching Himself Die on ‘Conan’ (Video)

4 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Not many people can say they enjoy watching themselves die, but Gary Oldman clearly did on “Conan.” The actor got a good laugh during Tuesday's show when host Conan O'Brien showed him a montage (above) of his many movie death scenes. See video: Gary Oldman Apologizes for Inflammatory Remarks During Kimmel: ‘I Am An A-hole’ Oldman, who can currently be seen in theaters as the leader of the human resistance in “Dawn in the Planet of the Apes,” has died in 13 movies. “True Romance,” “Sid and Nancy,” “Harry Potter,” “The Fifth Element” and “Air Force One” are among his most famous farewells. »

The Batman movie you'll never see: Darren Aronofsky's Year One

10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first few pages of Frank Miller's script for the shelved Batman: Year One have a disturbed Bruce Wayne waking up from chronic nightmares, some nameless prostitutes being slapped around by their pimp, and Jim Gordon putting a gun in his mouth.

You can see why Warner Bros didn't ultimately go for the project, which was to be helmed by Darren Aronofsky and would have rewritten the Bat mythology even more radically than Miller already had in his comic book arc of the same name.

"Our take was to infuse the Batman franchise with a dose of reality," Aronofsky has said, citing The French Connection and Taxi Driver among his influences. "We tried to ask that eternal question, 'What does it take for a real man to put on tights and fight crime?'" It's an approach not far from the one ultimately taken by Christopher Nolan in Batman Begins, »

10 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Many happy returns to Daniel Radcliffe, who celebrates his 25th birthday today (July 23)! He may have made a name for himself as heroic wizard Harry Potter, but in the years since Deathly Hallows - Part 2, he's excelled in small indies and displayed something of a flare for comedy.

Radcliffe will soon be seen tickling funnybones in What If and Judd Apatow's Trainwreck, so ahead of these upcoming roles we take a look back at 6 hilarious moments...

1. "I am Harry Potter"

Daniel was recently snapped flanked by a lot of dogs on the set of Judd Apatow's Tranwreck. However, the duo's relationship can be tracked back a few years to this hilarious Funny or Die video of Apatow quizzing the Harry Potter star on his alter ego...

Best of Late Night TV: John Stamos' New 'Manny' Service, Dwayne Johnson's Thigh Workout, Ricky Gervais' Marriage Apathy (Video)

11 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

John Stamos was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to plug his movie "My Man Is a Loser." Obviously, Uncle Jesse is not a loser, but he plays a playboy in the movie. He told Jimmy Kimmel he believes in the institution of marriage (he was married once, to Rebecca Romijn), despite getting caught up in the idea of the whole bachelor life "so guys like you can live vicariously through me." John said he'd switch lives with Jimmy in a heartbeat, to have a beautiful wife and baby. "She'll go to you," Jimmy deadpanned of his wife, Molly. Watch the video for John's weird attempt at a compliment to "fertilize" Jimmy's wife. »

Movie Review – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

22 July 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014.

Directed by Matt Reeves.

StarringAndy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Judy Greer, Kirk Acevedo, Enrique Murciano, and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

Synopsis:

Set ten years after the outbreak of a deadly virus, we find ape leader Caesar and his group living peacefully outside San Francisco. A chance meeting with a group of human survivors leads to the two sides battling for survival.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a surprise hit in 2011 and brought a breath of fresh air to a franchise that had stalled with numerous sequels and Tim Burton’s unfortunate remake. In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes we are in a post “Simian-flu” world and the tone of the film is completely different to its predecessor. Caesar (expertly played by motion capture God Serkis), is the leader of a group of apes and is »

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, like any prequel or movies based on a series of novels, suffers from inevitability. We know how it will end but the enjoyment should come from how it gets there and how it takes the audience along on the ride. Despite some great acting and truly awe inspiring advancements in motion capture, I couldn »

Matt Reeves talks Planet of the Apes 3

19 July 2014 3:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Dawn of the Planet of the Apes currently tearing up the box office and garnering near universal praise [read our two ★★★★★ reviews here and here], director Matt Reeves has offered up some insight into where the already-announced third movie (which is set for July 26th, 2016) may head during an interview with The Playlist. Be warned, spoilers for the end of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Mark Bomback and I are going to be writing the next one and we have a lot of ideas but you know we’re going to take a moment to breathe. We just finished this one so we’ll see where it goes but we have a lot of ideas we just have to sit down and start it all up again. But it’s really important to me that whatever we do next is something that can be better than Dawn, so hopefully we can achieve that aim. »

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Sequel Will Not Leap Forward in Time

18 July 2014 6:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Not to bring any spoilers to the table in its second weekend of release, but Dawn of the Planet of the Apes does feature a proper ending. We know where this series is eventually headed, a spoiler revealed in the 1968 original. Many fans have been speculating that we'll get to the iconic character Colonel George Taylor, personified by the late Charlton Heston , sooner than later. But that may not be the case.

Director Matt Reeves, who is already confirmed to director the untitled Planet of the Apes 3 prequel, says he wants to continue Caesar's story. And the next installment will not feature a major leap ahead.

"I don't necessarily think that there will be as big a leap between films. I see Caesar as a seminal figure in ape history and he's a mythic character. He's essentially like their Moses and I think Caesar having to grapple with what it »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie review: people get ready

18 July 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A magnificent science fiction drama, and a beautiful one. Wonderfully radical for the simple fact that it is ruled by principled ideas. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

We need a bigger word than humanist.

That was a word I used to describe the lovely, honest, sensitive Rise of the Planet of the Apes — and god, did it feel good to be able to connect those words with a big-budget science fiction movie. But now it feels too small to encompass where Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes the ongoing story. People-ist is the first coinage that leaps to mind, clunky as it is. Because there are nonhumans here who are as fully people as the humans are… in fact, the story is very much about the humans coming to »

18 July 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Grand Budapest Hotel ($168 million)

Rio 2 ($490 million)

The Other Woman ($195 million)

9 Actors Rendered Unrecognizable by Great Makeup

17 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

If you haven’t seen “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” yet, be prepared for some engrossingly convincing CGI effects that will have you thinking apes can really take over the world. While the actors, Weta, and director Matt Reeves did an amazing job teaming up to make the performance capture technology work to the best of its ability, creating many on-screen characters is still based in prosthetics and some great contouring, making actors appear as if they’ve slipped into someone (or something) else’s skin. From humans with distinct features to fictional creatures, here’s a list of actors who—thanks to amazing teams of makeup artists—you might not have recognized while in costume. Gary Oldman as Mason Verger, “Hannibal”Playing Hannibal Lecter’s (Anthony Hopkins) only surviving victim left Gary Oldman a disfigured mess in the 2001 film.

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »
