Top 7 Sports Movies Inspired by True StoriesTop 7 Sports Movies Inspired by True StoriesAmanda Wood and Jenny Bullough8/21/2017 10:00:00 Am

Sports movies are a dime a dozen these days, but not all of them are able to claim the highly-coveted title of true stories. Battle of the Sexes is one such lucky film, as it tells the very true tale of the rivalry between tennis stars Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Emma Stone and Steve Carell star in this ‘70s-set story of competition, commitment, and conviction.

There are plenty of other sports movies based on true stories that we love, and we’ve made a list to put all of our faves in one place. A wide variety of sports are represented here, with movies about baseball, football, wrestling, horse racing and more getting entries on our list.

Oscars: Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott Race to the Finish

18 August 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It wouldn’t be awards season without a little bit of drama around last-minute contenders sprinting to the finish line. This year, there are three major prestige projects based on true events from powerhouse directors that could really shake up the race.

Steven Spielberg’s “The Papers” — about the Washington Post, the Pentagon Papers, and a watershed moment in the history of press freedom — wasn’t even a go until a week after “Moonlight” won the best picture Oscar earlier this year. The Fox production shot throughout the summer and wrapped in July, aiming for a Dec. 22 limited release. It’s packed with an all-star cast, including Meryl Streep (as Post publisher Katharine Graham), Tom Hanks (as editor Ben Bradlee, a role that won Jason Robards an Oscar in 1977 for “All the President’s Men”), and Carrie Coon (as Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Meg Greenfield), among many others.

The unmade Planet Of The Apes movies of the 1990s

Mark Harrison Aug 17, 2017

Anyone for monkey baseball? We examine the weird and wonderful unmade scripts of the Planet Of The Apes series

In 2006, screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver were inspired by footage of domesticated chimpanzees who were unable to adjust to our lifestyles to write a sci-fi horror spec script that they called Genesis. Apparently, it was a while before the two of them realised that they were writing a Planet Of The Apes movie.

Their resultant pitch to 20th Century Fox led to 2011's Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, the excellent, emotional prequel/reboot of the franchise that led to 2014's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and recent trilogy topper, War For The Planet Of The Apes. Together, the three films take Caesar from domestication to domination and have been huge critical and financial hits for the studio.

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Jessica Lange, who’s at the height of powers at age 68, revealing depths of emotion as fading Golden Age star Joan Crawford in FX’s mighty Emmy contender “Feud: Bette and Joan.”

Martin Scorsese’s Top 7 movies

6 August 2017 10:36 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Picture Source:  Amazon.com

There are few filmmakers out there that can boast a filmography that stacks up to Martin Scorsese’s. Argued to be the best director of the Hollywood New Wave generation – not a small feat, considering he’s up against heavyweights like Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone, Scorsese started his career in 1967 with his debut Who’s That Knocking On My Door, and shows no signs of slowing down any time soon at his 74 years of age.

With big news coming out regarding his long gestating return to gangster epics The Irishman, we thought we’d take a look at some of the highlights of Scorsese’s wide spanning and eclectic career.

Gangs of New York

In many ways Gangs of New York belongs to Scorsese’s modern American gangster genre, albeit it as a prequel to the actual gangster world. Telling the violent »
