Bad Ideas: Films We’re Glad Never Got Made

3 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Sometimes they don’t get it! We all know that the film industry is a business and they want to make money, but Hollywood doesn’t always realize that the best way to do that is to make a good film. Sometimes, Hollywood’s habit of taking a known property and stretching them out to absurd proportions proves that they just don’t get the point. Fortunately, there are times when someone recognizes a bad idea and puts on the breaks. Below is a list of 14 films where someone was smart enough to notice that they were making a pile of trash and threw in the towel. 

Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian

Due to the success of Beetlejuice, Tim Burton was asked to do a sequel. And Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian was the best plot they could come up with…The sequel would follow the Deetz family again, as they move to Hawaii. »

The Ten Most Stylish Guys in Movie History

3 July 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By Alex Simon

They say that clothes make the man. They also make the man in the movie and, sometimes, even make the movie itself live on in the annals of classic filmdom. With that in mind, here is a list (in no particular order) of ten gents and the characters they played who changed our sartorial habits forever.

1. Michael Douglas/Gordon Gecko—Wall Street

Arguably the movie that set the style for second half of the 1980s, Oliver Stone’s Wall Street featured Michael Douglas’ Oscar-winning turn as corporate raider Gordon Gecko, whose ruthlessness in the boardroom was only matched by his sense of style. Douglas is all clean lines in his pinstripe suits, suspenders and slicked-back hair, creating an iconic look that screamed “power” and “go fuck yourself” simultaneously.

2. Malcolm McDowell/AlexA Clockwork Orange

Stanley Kubrick’s dystopian sci-fi allegory is one of cinema’s great dark satires, »

Oscars: Biopics, Diversity Dearth Shape Midyear Race

2 July 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As 2015 hits the halfway mark, it’s encouraging that so many upcoming films look promising — because so far, the Oscar possibilities are meager, to say the least.

Once again, fact-based dramas will dominate awards buzz. There are at least 14 with scheduled dates, and another three possibilities for this year. Six of these earn the highest possible praise: People from rival studios like them.

That roster includes “Black Mass,” starring Johnny Depp as Boston mob kingpin Whitey Bulger; “Concussion,” about the NFL’s efforts to deny the repercussions of players’ repeated concussions; “Spotlight,” with Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams as the Boston Globe reporters who uncovered child abuse in the Catholic Church; “Trumbo,” about Dalton Trumbo and the House Un-American Activities Committee; “Truth,” the Dan Rather-George W. Bush scandal pic; and “The Walk,” about high-wire artist Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Here's What We Learned About the Movies From This Week's Trailers

2 July 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This week's episode of Screen Talk is presented by Vimeo. Head here to check out movies you can rent on Vimeo selected by Indiewire's Eric Kohn. This week, the first 100 people who use the promo code "eric10" can rent "Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter" (above), one of Kohn's favorite films of the year, with a 10% discount. The summer movie season is swarming with sequels, but it's hard to imagine any of them delivering as much fun as "Magic Mike Xxl." Its crowdpleasing potential was obvious from the trailer, but as we all know, trailers never guarantee quality. Read More: Why is Hollywood Still So Sexist? But marketers certainly try to convince us otherwise. This week saw the arrival of three major trailers, and they all invite plenty of scrutiny. While Oliver Stone's biopic "Snowden" includes no actual footage from the film, it hints at the kind of project one might »

Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' Teaser Leaks No Footage of A-List Cast

1 July 2015 3:55 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For a movie about a guy (in)famous for leaking classified information, "Snowden" is playing its own cards close to the vest. For now. Oliver Stone, who lives for this kind of story, directed the political bio thriller with Joseph Gordon-Levitt as former CIA employee Edward Snowden. The movie comes out on Christmas, which means it's a capital "B" Big Deal. Also a big deal: the rest of the A-list cast, which includes Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson and even -- a bit randomly -- Nicolas Cage.

The first teaser trailer doesn't focus on the cast. It doesn't show them at all. It only lists their names at the end, after a series of facts are shown about the real Edward Snowden (who is also not shown at all). Here's what we see, amid close-up shots of an American flag, as pensive »

Don Winslow on his amazing new book 'The Cartel' and America's drug war

1 July 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Have you read Don Winslow's remarkable open letter about the drug war? If so, then you've got some sense of the simmering anger that runs through his new novel, The Cartel, which is one of the most impressive books I've read this year. Dense, sweeping, and scathing in terms of pointing at all the systemic failures that keep a horrifying mechanism in place, The Cartel is worth your time, and it's worth a serious conversation, which is exactly what I had with him about a week before the book hit the shelves. He dialed me directly. I was at home, and as I hit record on the conversation, he was already mid-explanation about how long he's been working on telling this particular story, which arrives just as this conversation seems to be heating up onscreen (the documentary "Cartel Land") and in real life.

Snowden: first trailer for new Oliver Stone film

30 June 2015 11:26 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

There's an American flag, but no sign of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the first trailer for Oliver Stone's Edward Snowden film...

The latest movie from director Oliver Stone is the story of Nsa whistleblower, Edward Snowden. Due in Us cinemas in December, the movie stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden, with the supporting cast including Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Nicolas Cage (yes!) and Rhys Ifans.

The film - which goes by the name of Snowden - is set to tell the story of how Snowden got hold of thousands of classified documents and then leaked them to the press, and the simple synopsis for the movie reads as follows:

Snowden stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Oliver Stone. The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and »

The Snowden Trailer Gives Us Our First Look At The Complicated Whistleblower's Story

30 June 2015 7:17 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Oliver Stone has never been known to shy away from politics in his film, and later this year he will continue this tradition by making a movie about one of the most polarizing people in the world: Edward Snowden. The film won't be out until the end of the year, but the first trailer has found its way online, and you can watch it below: This first look at Snowden sadly doesn't contain any actual footage from the film, instead choosing to simply promote the movie with the true story angle, but it still is a pretty cool tease. The movie's titular figure has a story that's certainly worth telling on the big screen, and it's all wrapped up with a tagline that will surely start some murmurs: The very end of this trailer shows off the impressive cast list that the movie has lined up, but it's surprising that »

The Teaser Trailer For Oliver Stone’s Snowden Arrives

30 June 2015 3:34 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Recounting the story of Nsa contractor Edward Snowden (Joseph Gordon Levitt) and how he obtained and shared with the world thousands of classified documents that informed the public of privacy breaches acted out by their own government, Oliver Stone’s Snowden comes our way later this year, and the first trailer has arrived. A teaser in every sense of the word, this gives nothing away about the story (or contain any footage for that matter), but you get the sense Stone is going down the controversial route here (the upside American flag is an official signal that the country is in danger). The director's output has been on decline as of late, but part of me is hoping Snowden sees a return to form for him. Released: 25th December (U.S.)/ ? (Irl/U.K.) »

Haunting First Snowden Trailer Packs in the Skepticism and Hypocritical Patriotism Without Saying a Word

30 June 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

So tell us how you really feel, Oliver Stone. The sometime conspiracy theorist and master at shining a light on government hypocrisy, tragic irony and media manipulation is the director behind Snowden, about former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who blew the whistle on the Nsa's wiretapping program and has not been back to the United States since. And even though the first teaser for the upcoming big-screen drama is just written words, a flag and music, the vibe is clear. Those who think Snowden was a traitor may not be first in line to see this film, but those who think he's the epitome of a great patriot will probably be on board with Stone's vision.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the Most Wanted Man in the World in Snowden

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Edward Snowden, the man who leaked thousands of classified Nsa documents to the press in 2013. This is the teaser trailer for Oliver Stone’s next film, Snowden. Well that was disappointing, I guess it’s my fault for expecting some actual footage from a teaser trailer. All we get are a few lines […]

Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' Trailer Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt

30 June 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Open Road Films has released the first trailer for their upcoming thriller Snowden, set to hit theaters on December 25. Written and directed by Academy Award-Winning Director Oliver Stone, Snowden features an all-star cast including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans and Nicolas Cage. You may notice that Oliver Stone uses the same image of an upside-down American flag from Natural Born Killers, with the trailer including the tagline "One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all."

The script is based on the books The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena. The latter book mainly deals with former information analyst Snowden's time in Russia hoping to get asylum while the United States was demanding his extradition to potentially face jail time for leaking classified information.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the world's Most Wanted man in teaser for Oliver Stone's Snowden

30 June 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt becomes the world's Most Wanted man in a chilling teaser for Snowden.

A brand new promo for Oliver Stone's dramatisation of Nsa leaker Edward Snowden's life carries the tagline: "One nation under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all."

Snowden tells the story of a man who rose from Us Army recruit to a National Security Agency contractor within the span of just nine years.

The defence contractor made himself an enemy of the Us government when he leaked a mass of classified documents to reporters Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras in 2013.

Zachary Quinto and Melissa Leo portray the journalists at the centre of this controversy in Snowden, while Shailene Woodley plays the girlfriend who Edward left behind when he fled the Us.

The controversial subject matter in Snowden is nothing new for Stone, who has famously directed acclaimed movies on the Kennedy assassination and the Watergate scandal. »

Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s ‘Snowden’ Gets Footage-Free Trailer

30 June 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Open Road has released a simple footage-free teaser trailer for Oliver Stone’s “Snowden” six months ahead of its Christmas release date.

The one-minute teaser offers a recap of the career of whistleblower Edward Snowden: “Army recruit at 21;  joined CIA at 22; Nsa contractor at 25; By age 29, the most wanted man in the world.”

The trailer concludes with an upside-down U.S. flag bearing the motto, “One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all.”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in the title role as Snowden, alongside Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Olyphant.

Snowden was charged in 2013 by the U.S. Department of Justice with two counts of violating the Espionage Act and theft of government property, and his passport was revoked a week later by the U.S. Department of State. He was granted temporary asylum by Russia last year.

Moritz Borman is producing with Eric Kopeloff and Philip Schulz-Deyle. »

‘Snowden’ Teaser Trailer: Oliver Stone Pic Flying Its Flag

30 June 2015 10:49 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

“One nation, under surveillance, for liberty and justice for all.” There’s no footage from the movie but the message is clear in the teaser trailer that just dropped for Snowden, the Edward Snowden movie that is co-written and directed by Oliver Stone. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in one of the 21st centuries most notorious criminals — notorious because the country is divided over whether his release of troves of classified Nsa documents was illegal or heroic.
