'Erase and Forget': Film Review | Berlin 2017

3 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

As the alleged real-life inspiration for Sylvester Stallone's Rambo character, Marlon Brando's Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now and George Peppard's "Hannibal" Smith in The A-Team, James Gordon "Bo" Gritz should have provided rich material for an engrossing documentary. Yet somehow Erase and Forget manages to botch the mission, getting lost in arty ambiguities and lofty political aspirations instead of attacking its juicy target with the required amount of laser-guided military discipline.

German-born, London-based director Andrea Luka Zimmerman is a former associate of two-time Oscar nominee Joshua Oppenheimer (The Act of Killing, The Look of Silence), and she seems to be »

Vidyut Jammwal – The Action Star Of This Generation

22 hours ago | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We’ve all seen action packed Bollywood films with high octane and death-defying stunts that are executed by stunt doubles most of the times. But the only actor who is a trained martial artist since before he became an actor and does all his stunts is Vidyut Jammwal.

His role models being Sylvester Stallone and Jackie Chan, Vidyut has paved his way as an action star without any Bollywood influences and roots. He doesn’t follow a pattern in films or even stick to certain roles and habits. As he says himself, “Out of the comfort zone is the comfort zone.”

Apart from being effortlessly sexy, fit and amazing at his job, Vidyut is an intelligent man who thinks women should not change their bodies to look good for anybody.

Being quite the fitness fanatic, Vidyut thinks giving up certain foods to lose weight and getting fit is a myth. »

Oscar Parties: Ava DuVernay, Meryl Streep Rouse Female Oscar Nominees (Photos)

25 February 2017 10:47 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Considering all of her talents and stature, Meryl Streep seems like a stranger to the VIP section of hot Hollywood nightclubs. Yet on Friday night, hours before another trip to the Oscars, America’s acting deity and fresh liberal lion of Hollywood glided into Nightingale Plaza. That’s the same La Cienega haunt previously favored by Leonardo DiCaprio in the early 2000s and Sylvester Stallone a decade earlier.

2017 Razzie Awards Winners Announced

25 February 2017 10:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's the Saturday before Oscars. And that can mean only one thing! Yes, this year's Razzie Award winners have been announced. The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year's 37th Annual Razzie Awards expanded from 5 nominees to an unprecedented 6 contenders in each of its 9 Worst Achievement in Film categories. Leading this year's list of movie-misfires were the 15-years-too-late sequel Zoolander No. 2 and the Wtf comic book battle-royale Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Each was up for both Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Other Worst Picture nominees include Dirty Grandpa, Gods of Egypt, Hillary's America and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Many expected Batman v Superman would take Worst Picture of the year. But it failed to live up to even that hype, proving it can't catch a break. Instead, the Worst Picture Award went to a truly despicable piece of tabloid cinema known as Hillary's America. »

Collide Review

24 February 2017 3:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Watching Collide – the action thriller that debuted on roughly 2,000 screens this weekend – will, more likely than not, leave audiences wondering how indeed the film made it to the big screen. Its warmed-over love story, the one-last-job premise that fuels the plot and the parade of cliches it happily checks out of its cinematic bucket list don’t exactly scream “wide theatrical release.” So what then can we attribute the film’s major release to? Certainly, that answers boils down to the four acclaimed stars that frontline Eran Creevy’s third directorial effort.

Nicholas Hoult stars as Casey, a low-level criminal who gives up his life of delinquency when he falls in love with Juliette (Felicity Jones). However, in order for them to live happily ever after, Casey must resume working for drug dealer Geran (Ben Kingsley) on a task that puts both him and Juliette in the crosshairs of notorious »

24 February 2017 2:37 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

While he’s not nominated for an Oscar this year, George Clooney did take home the French equivalent of the Academy’s golden statue at the César ceremony.

Touted beforehand as “the most charismatic actor of his generation,” the Ocean’s Eleven star and his wife Amal, pregnant with their twins, brought Hollywood glamour to Paris at the Salle Pleyel on Friday. Dressed in his signature black Armani tuxedo and bow tie, Clooney looked dashing next to his wife, who showed off her baby bump in a fitted white gown tapered with an ombré of ostrich feathers.

New trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 classified

24 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the rather excellent extended Super Bowl spot [watch it here], it seems that Marvel will be giving us another look at this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the very near future.

According to Trailer Track, the Alberta Film Ratings board has classified a new trailer for the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel, which runs at 2 minutes and 20 seconds.

It’s unclear when the new trailer will arrive, but it would seem likely that it will either be attached to next week’s Wolverine solo movie Logan, or Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which opens on March 17th. Either way, expect it online first.

How ‘Ultimate Beastmaster’ Creator Mashed Up ‘Super Mario Bros.’ and the Olympics for Netflix’s First Reality Show

23 February 2017 6:23 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

David Broome was stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway when idea for “Ultimate Beastmaster” first came to him.

“I thought, What if I could basically take ‘Mario Bros.’ and bring it to life?” Broome said. “That would be the ultimate obstacle course.”

The Beast is quite the obstacle course. Six-hundred feet long and 85 feet tall at its highest point, it is the centerpiece of “Ultimate Beastmaster,” which premieres Friday on Netflix. But the show’s ambitions are not limited to the scope and scale of the challenge it presents contestants — 108 athletes from six different countries competing to the best the Beast.

Executive produced by Broome and Sylvester Stallone, “Ultimate Beastmaster” is Netflix’s first big swing at a television-style reality competition series, and it is tailored to the streaming service’s business model. Broome and his company 25/7 productions have created six different versions of each of the first season’s 10 episodes geared toward six different territories — the »
