Darren Aronofsky To Receive Top Sound Editors Honor

45 minutes ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Darren Aronofsky will be honored by the Motion Picture Sound Editors with its annual Filmmaker Award, to be presented at the Mpse’s 62nd Golden Reel Awards on February 15. The society’s highest honor is presented to “to extraordinary filmmakers who embody the spirit, the vigor and innovation of storytelling.”

“One of the first reasons I was inspired to become a filmmaker,” Aronofsky said, “was the exciting possibilities of experimenting with sound, so it is an incredible feeling to be honored by the Mpse. Sound dreams, sound emotes, and most importantly, sound is what often saves my ass.”

Past recipients include Steven Spielberg, Ang Lee and Brian Grazer.

Studio Babelsberg Braces for $3 Million Annual Loss

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

Berlin — Despite major projects this year, including Steven Spielberg’s latest Cold War drama and the “Point Break” remake, Germany’s Studio Babelsberg is expecting a €2.5 million ($3 million) loss for 2014.

In an interview with German financial newspaper Handelsblatt published on Friday, Studio Babelsberg president and CEO Charlie Woebcken said he hoped the studio would survive next year.

Speaking to Variety on Monday, however, the studio’s vice president and chief operating officer, Christoph Fisser, played down the comments, saying a number of developments since Woebcken’s interview — which actually took place some 10 days prior to its publication — had resulted in an improved climate going into the new year.

“We are optimistic and feeling good about next year,” Fisser said.

While the studio is forecasting 2014 revenue of €50 million ($61.1 million), down from €81.9 million ($100.1 million) last year, Fisser said Babelsberg was in negotiations with a number of major Hollywood productions to shoot at the studio next year. »

Phil’s Ten Worst Movies of 2014

5 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

If you’ve read my Top 10 Movies of 2014 list, you’ll know I proclaimed the vast amount of really good movies released this year but for all the good movies, there has to be some bad… And the bad were Really bad this year. From unfunny comedies to weird vanity projects that were seemingly made just for friends and family of the film makers attached, to some truly awful horror movies it seems that 2014 will be marked by some truly terrible films – some of which made it to the big screen!

The criteria is the same as my “best of” list: it has to be a movie I’ve seen this year, one that was released this year, i.e. making its UK debut, or a new movie that I’ve seen at a film festival that might not necessarily have been distributed as of yet. Also, the cut off »

American Sniper: new trailer lands

13 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Bradley Cooper stars in American Sniper, the latest movie from Clint Eastwood. Here's the new trailer...

It arrives in Us cinemas later this week - and we get it in the Us in January - and now a trailer has now landed for Clint Eastwood's second movie of the year, American Sniper.

The first, Jersey Boys, we don't really talk about. It just came and went. But his adaptation of American Sniper, based on the book by Chris Kyle, looks more promising. In fact, this new trailer is full of quotes from critics telling us that it's really rather good. That's a start, then.

Bradley Cooper leads the cast, alongside Sienna Miller, Luke Grimes, Kyle Gallner and Sam Jaeger. And Eastwood stepped into direct about the time Steven Spielberg dropped out of the project last year.

Without further ado, here's the new trailer for the film.

Steven Spielberg Casts Young Lead in The Bfg

21 December 2014 9:02 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

One thing that Steven Spielberg has always been really great at is casting amazingly talented kids in his film productions. From Henry Thomas in E.T. to Christian Bale in The Empire of the Sun, he knows good young talent when he sees it. He has recently cast 10-year-old newcomer Ruby Barnhill from Cheshire England to take on the lead role in his upcoming film project The Bfg.

In a statement about the casting, Spielberg said,

“I feel Roald Dahl himself would have found Ruby every bit as marvelous as we do. We have discovered a wonderful Sophie in Ruby Barnhill.”

Barnhill added,

“I feel incredibly lucky and I’m so happy. Sophie gets to go on this wonderful adventure and I’m so excited that I get to play her.”

The actress joins Mark Rylance, who was previously cast as the Big Friendly Giant character. The story is based on »

First Photo of Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg’s Cold War Thriller

20 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Thanks to EW we have our first look at Tom Hanks in the Steven Spielberg Untitled Cold War Thriller that is currently in production. I love it when these two team up for a project! They always do great work. This will be the fourth film project that they’ve worked on together after Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal, and Catch Me If You Can.

The script for the film was polished up by Joel and Ethan Coen and follows the true story of James Donovan, a CIA-backed lawyer who worked to “secretly negotiate the release of Francis Gary Powers, a U.S. pilot shot down over Soviet airspace in 1960 while piloting a U-2 spy plane.”

Spielberg explained why he took on the project,

“This is one of the more astonishing stories about the Cold War I’d ever heard. James Donovan is a hero to me, and Tom made him so completely accessible… »

Colin Trevorrow and Chris Pratt talk Jurassic World

19 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

By now we’ve all seen the trailer for Jurassic World, a return to the world created 22 years ago (blimey that makes me feel old) by Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton. In it we see that us humans may have learnt from the past and built a dinosaur theme park that actually works, but as Ian Malcolm pointed out, we’re now just making all new mistakes! Director Colin Trevorrow and star Chris Pratt were speaking to Entertainment Weekly, and both had a tiny bit to say about the new film.

“There are dinosaurs and there’s the other—there’s this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them,” Trevorrow said. “There’s a lot of bold new ideas in the movie and I’m pushing it as far forward as I can. I know Steven didn’t want me to make a carbon copy of the earlier films. »

New Pictures from 'Star Wars 7', 'Insurgent', 'Furious 7', 'Ted 2', 'Jurassic World' and More

19 December 2014 10:16 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Photo: Walt Disney Pictures Entertainment Weekly has released several new images from upcoming 2015 releases including the likes of some artwork from Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens as seen directly above as well as pics from Ted 2, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Furious 7, Jurassic World and many more. Full disclosure, just from looking at these pictures I wouldn't have been able to figure out what some of them are from, but lucky for you this isn't a "Guess the Movies" installment. Here's a look at several of the new pictures along with a little commentary of my own over the course of the next couple pages. I would have guessed this first picture below was for a Baby Mama sequel I didn't yet know existed -- in which case I'd have yelled, "Whoop whoop!" -- but alas, it's for a film called Sisters (previously known as The Nest »

New Photos From 2015's Biggest Movies Including 'Chappie,' 'Jurassic World,' 'Insurgent' And More

19 December 2014 7:33 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Have you made your list and checked it twice? No, we're not talking about what you want from Santa Claus (and on the real, you should've had that locked down a while ago — Christmas is in less than a week), but instead what movies are the must-see titles for you in 2015. And if we had to wager a guess, it's likely a few of those movies are mentioned below. Entertainment Weekly is closing off the year by looking ahead, dropping a batch of new photos from some of the biggest films arriving across the next twelve months. So let's dive in, shall we? Right up top is a new look at Neill Blomkamp's "Chappie," which is already proving to be somewhat divisive after its first trailer. I personally think it looks pretty awesome. Meanwhile: Chris Pratt rides a motorcycle with some dinosaurs in a new snap from "Jurassic World »

German Fund that Fuels Hollywood Pix Receives Cash Boost for 2016

19 December 2014 6:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The German government has reversed a cut in funding for the German Federal Film Fund, which has given coin to Hollywood pics like Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and George Clooney’s “The Monuments Men.”

The fund, which delivers non-repayable grants to producers, was set up in 2007. It was extended in late 2012 for a further three years, and its budget was increased from Euros 60 million ($73.8 million) to Euros 70 million ($86.1 million) a year.

However, last year the government decided to cut funding to Euros 60 million ($73.8 million), and earlier this year it cut it further to Euros 50 million ($61.5 million) for 2015.

Today, the government decided to reverse that second cut and bring the fund back up to Euros 60 million ($73.8 million) from 2016.

The grant is worth up to 20% of the qualifying German production costs, according to Olswang. There is an upper limit of Euros 10 million ($12.3 million) available for each production. German »

Jurassic World: director Colin Trevorrow on his dinosaurs

18 December 2014 11:01 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Colin Trevorrow explains why he's not making a copy of the earlier Jurassic Park films with Jurassic World...

This piece contains a very mild spoiler for Jurassic World.

If you've seen the trailer for next summer's Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World, then you'll already know that one of the big new additions to the dinosaur line-up this time is a newly-minted dinosaur species. The so-called D-Rex takes its place alongside the more familiar dinos in the park, and it was broadly hinted at in the first trailer for the movie, that landed three weeks ago.

Director Colin Trevorrow has been talking about the new creation in a new interview at Entertainment Weekly, and he said that "there are dinosaurs and there's the other - there's this thing that is not one of them, that is not of them".

He added that "there's a lot of bold new ideas in this movie, »

First Image From Steven Spielberg's Untitled Cold War Drama

18 December 2014 5:54 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Directed by Steven Spielberg, written by The Coen Brothers, and starring Tom Hanks, it's a surprise that the untitled true life tale of lawyer James Donovan charged by the CIA to negotiate the release of a U.S. pilot shot down over Soviet airspace in 1960 just snuck into production without much fanfare. You'd think a creative team of that caliber would warrant more of a fanfare. An even bigger surprise is that is still without a name. No matter what it's called, EW have the first image from the project, featuring Hanks and Spielberg in the middle of shooting a scene. The Untitled Spielberg/Hanks/Coen Brothers Movie (could be onto something there) hits cinemas October 16th 2015. »

Tom Hanks reunites with filmmaker Steven Spielberg for the fourth time in next year's Untitled Cold War Thriller, following their collaborations in Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal, and Catch Me If You Can. While the project still does not have a title at this time, Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first photo, as part of their extensive 2015 preview issue. Steven Spielberg is currently in post-production on this thriller, which is based on the incredible true story of American lawyer James Donovan (Tom Hanks)

In 1960, at the height of the Cold War between the U.S. and Russia, American pilot Francis Gary Powers was shot down over Russian airspace, during a mission in his U-2 spy plane. Donovan was recruited by the CIA to help negotiate the pilot's release. Alan Alda, Amy Ryan, and Mark Rylance round out the cast, with Joel and Ethan Coen providing the screenplay. Take a look »

How the ticking of a clock helped editor William Goldenberg pace 'The Imitation Game'

18 December 2014 3:42 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Two years ago, William Goldenberg took the stage of the Dolby Theater on Oscar night as the Oscar winner for Best Film Editing on "Argo." This year, he is firmly back in the race, having cut Morten Tyldum's "The Imitation Game." I recently spoke to Goldenberg about the film, his approach to editing and his career to date. HitFix: When did you come aboard the film? William Goldenberg: I was offered the film probably six months before the movie was going to start shooting but I was booked. I had all of these people calling me saying I had to do it but I said I couldn't do it. But I became available and luckily for me they hadn't hired an editor yet and I was thrilled that they hadn't! How would you describe your approach on a macro level? My main goal when I'm cutting is always story. »
