American Sniper: an old-fashioned western in military uniform

10 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Clint Eastwood’s film about navy Seal Chris Kyle is on target to become the biggest-grossing war movie in history. How did it win the nation’s hearts and minds?

At some point this weekend, a small but important record will be broken. Since its release in the Us two weeks ago, Clint Eastwood’s new film, American Sniper, has made a little over $209m. Between now and Sunday night, it will (if you ignore inflation) almost certainly become the highest grossing war movie ever, outstripping the $216m of Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan. This was nothing that anyone saw coming. There was no turbo-charged marketing campaign. Its leading man, Bradley Cooper, is a star – but stars don’t guarantee box office any more.

13 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Over three years ago, we learned that Robert Downey Jr. was producing a drama focusing on the tragic sinking of the USS Indianapolis during World War II. The film will focus on the tragedy from the point-of-view of Hunter Scott, an 11-year old boy who embarked on a journey to exonerate the Indianapolis’ court-martialed captain in 1996.

Downey still isn't starring in the film, but he'll produce with his wife Susan Downey through their Team Downey banner.

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young -- i.e., media friendly -- Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on February 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the »

'Black Sea' (2015) Movie Review

28 January 2015 8:03 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Scottish director Kevin Macdonald found some early success and notoriety with his first narrative feature The Last King of Scotland, which ended up earning Forest Whittaker an Oscar. Since then films such as State of Play and The Eagle haven't played so well, though his 2013 feature, How I Live Now, managed to turn some heads, even if it wasn't released on a very wide basis. Known at the beginning of his career as a documentary filmmaker, he's continued on that track here and there, most recently with Marley, but now he comes to the table with his latest fictional feature, a submarine thriller titled Black Sea starring Jude Law as a submarine captain in search of lost Nazi gold. While Black Sea has something of an Indiana Jones-sounding plotline, it's far more serious than that. To go along with the search for sunken gold off the coast of Georgia, there's »

Is Chris Pratt Set For ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot?

27 January 2015 9:17 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Disney having acquired Lucasfilm, it’s easy to forget that it’s not all just about Star Wars. Rumours are now leaking out of a possible Indiana Jones reboot, with Chris Pratt taking over from Harrison Ford. The last film in the franchise, Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, was absolutely awful on most accounts, but still went on to be a box-office hit. There were mutterings of a fifth film, but it now seems as though Disney would rather start over again.

The move seems to make sense, as Ford can hardly be expected to carry a brand new series of films. Pratt meanwhile, is already the lead in Disney’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, which has a confirmed sequel, as well as heading up the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World. The first two films in that series of course being »

The Orchard has acquired digital and broadcast rights in North America for the documentary “Above and Beyond” from producer Nancy Spielberg and director Roberta Grossman.

The film is set to open in limited release Friday in New York.

Robert Downey Jr. Is Going To Give Us A Really Sad World War II Movie

27 January 2015 5:37 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As famously recounted in Quint's dramatic monologue in Steven Spielberg's Jaws, the fate of the USS Indianapolis is one of the most horrific tales of World War II. It's a story of capsize, starvation, dehydration, shark-attacks and death, and while there was ultimately a light at the end of the tunnel, that doesn't make the events any less brutal. Now those events will be getting brought to cinematic life courtesy of producer Robert Downey Jr. and director Tate Taylor - though they will be unfolding through the filter of a young boy looking to find justice for a hero in the whole mess. The Wrap has the news out of Sundance at that the helmer of the Oscar-winning The Help and last year's Get On Up is now set to direct the USS Indinapolis-centric film, which does not yet have a title.

Sundance: Focus World Picks Up 'Cop Car' (Exclusive)

Park City — Focus World, the alternative distribution arm of Focus Features, has closed a deal to pick up the distribution rights to Cop Car, the Kevin Bacon thriller. The movie premiered Saturday as part of the festival's midnight sidebar and has been described as having tones of the 1980s Amblin movies (the Steven Spielberg-produced films which featured young boys on wild adventures) crossed with influences such as the Coen Brothers crime movies or movies like Blue Ruin. A small bidding war ensued, with Lionsgate and IFC among those chasing the keys to Car, but Focus ended up taking

They returned, wearing their blue and white stripes as badges of courage. And resilience. And resolve. Survivors of the Nazis' Auschwitz concentration camp returned Tuesday to the complex in Oswiecim, Poland, to mark the 70th anniversary of their liberation by the Soviet army at the end of World War II. Many came with the notorious stripes of their former death-camp prison uniforms fashioned into scarves, or, like Miroslaw Celka, 89, into a sash bearing his former prisoner number.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Digging for Fire’

27 January 2015 10:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joe Swanberg continues his march toward the mainstream even as he deepens his signature brand of hangout film in “Digging for Fire,” a lovely slice of everything and nothing centered on a housesitting couple who discover possible evidence of a murder. There are feints toward a bona fide mystery plot, but that genre element is just a pretext for a stealth marital drama. The film is held together through strong improv, tight editing (by Swanberg himself), moody cinematography and a synth score (from Dan Romer) that parties like it’s 1991. This is Swanberg’s starriest picture to date — even if some appearances, like Jenny Slate’s, amount to glorified walk-ons — making breakout success eminently possible.

Concerning the adventures of married parents Tim (co-screenwriter Jake Johnson) and Lee (Rosemarie DeWitt), “Digging for Fire” opens with the two of them and their son, Jude (played by Swanberg’s toddler, Jude, the finest »
