Repressionistic Cinema

28 January 2015 9:29 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Let's look at what's trending. 'Serious' cinema reigns; we need realism, we need our James Bond gritty. The playfulness of Errol Flynn's multi-color Robin Hood has been traded out for the brawny blood spilling Russell Crowe. Exit color, enter the blue hued sordid filter of late. Now notice this is very new. Pierce Brosnan surfed a Tsunami in Die Another Day, and that was just recently in 2002. Now Daniel Craig's Bond is struggling with old age, bad cardio, and a rusty shot? We've come a long ways from the 007 who rescued bikini laden damsels while fending off eye patched bad guys. 

The old Burton Batman went from surrealist nightmare, to Christopher Nolan crime thriller. Superman began a lighthearted ass-kicker, and became an isolated brood who gradually unclosets his powers (the red of his cape can barely manage the aforementioned depressing blue palette, it looks purple). So what's that say of an audience exactly? »

Female 'Ghostbusters': We Cast The Male Dana

28 January 2015 6:13 AM, PST | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Sigourney Weaver in ‘Ghostbusters’ (Sony)

The all-female "Ghostbusters" remake has been cast, with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon suiting up.

If we're gender-switching all roles in the new version, we think it's only fair that Sigourney Weaver's Dana Barrett be recast with some hot man meat.

Here are AccessHollywood.com's top 5 picks for who should fill Dana's heels:

1) Jon Hamm: The "Mad Men" hunk is not only super easy on the eyes, but was hilarious in "Bridesmaids" alongside Kristen (a film also directed by ...

27 January 2015 3:41 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Do you like films with strong female leads? Do you like to watch "the fairer sex" prove that they.re not as fair as society has often portrayed them? Then you.ll get a kick out of this supercut tribute to women in prominent action movie roles.literally. Women have been kicking ass on the big screen since before Sigourney Weaver proved she could hold her own against vicious aliens in Alien, but over the last 36 years, stars like Milla Jovovich (in The Fifth Element and Resident Evil), Carrie Anne-Moss (The Matrix), Linda Hamilton (the original Terminator movies) and Uma Thurman (Kill Bill) have succeeded her as the kick-ass female action stars of the modern era. This supercut seems to honor the ladies by giving us a taste of some of their best moments. Compiled by Vimeo user ClaraDarko, the clips are cut to the song "Derezzed" by Daft Punk, »

'Ghostbusters' Gets Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy

27 January 2015 12:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The main Ghostbusters cast has been officially announced by director Paul Feig on his Twitter account. Ghostbusters will be led by his Bridesmaids co-stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy along with current Saturday Night Live cast mates Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

Paul Feig has revealed in previous interviews that this new version of Ghostbusters will be a complete reboot of the supernatural comedy. It will be a lot scarier than the original, and will not maintain any continuity with the 1984 classic or it's sequel. While Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddmore do not exist in this world, cameos from Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver are not out of the question.

"Ghostbusters" Reboot Cast Unveiled?

27 January 2015 12:54 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Director Paul Feig has announced the cast in early talks for the "Ghostbusters" reboot at Sony Pictures which he's set to direct.

Feig used Twitter to reveal that "Bridesmaids" co-stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy will lead the group which will also include "Saturday Night Live" cast mates Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

It's a complete reboot so the previous characters don't exist in this world, but cameos from actors Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver aren't out of the question. The main male role in the film has yet to be cast.

Hitfix has character breakdowns for the film with the leads being an academic on the tenure track at Columbia, an author who is more into the "pop parapsychology" of things, said author's ghost hunting partner, and an Mta employee who comes across the main ghost.

Other characters include a creepy mechanical genius, and a »

Alien franchise: ranking the movies in order of quality

22 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alien and Aliens are classics. But how do the other sequels, prequel and spin-offs compare? We try to rank them in descending order...

Ranking any franchise is a personal and difficult process, but the Alien series represents its own challenges. Were you more affected by the intimate shocks of the 1979 original, or the more action-led 1986 sequel? Were you impressed by Alien 3's commitment to its bleak tone, or irked by its soupy darkness?

You're sure to have your own opinions as to how the Alien movies should be ranked, though we'd wager that, like us, you'd place the Alien Vs Predator spin-offs quite far down the list. But then there's Ridley Scott's prequel, Prometheus, a film some might rank far above Jean-Pierre Jeunet's quirky Alien Resurrection, and perhaps even David Fincher's Alien 3.

Accepting, then, that the ranking below is very much down to personal taste, »

What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: January 19 - 25

19 January 2015 4:15 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"The Boxtrolls"

Laika's latest stop-motion film is about a kiddo named Eggs (Isaac Hempstead Wright) who is raised by a gaggle of trolls under the streets of Cheesebridge. It got pretty good reviews, as well as an Oscar nomination, and while it hasn't snatched up as many eyes and hearts as "Coraline" or "ParaNorman," it's still a solid kid's movie. The Blu-ray includes audio commentary from directors Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi, as well as a few other extra goodies.

"Lucy"

Scarlett Johansson's actioner has been available digitally, but now you can snag it on Blu-ray.

"My Winnipeg"

Guy Maddin's wonderfully weird ode to his hometown is finally on Criterion. In addition to your typical Criterion updates -- a high-def digital video transfer, »

Through the Looking-Glass…Top 100 Most Anticipated Films of 2016: #1. Juan Antonio Bayona’s A Monster Calls

16 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A Monster Calls

Director: Juan Antonio Bayona // Writer: Patrick Ness

Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona began as one of the talents supported by Guillermo Del Toro, blazing into the international horror realm back in 2007 with The Orphanage, which showcased the wonderful Belen Rueda. But his 2012 sophomore film, The Impossible, which depicted the onslaught and aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that devastated Thailand, that really brought Bayona acclaim. That film snagged Naomi Watts an Oscar nod for Best Actress and proved the director’s penchant and flair for working with big budget special effects. We’re quite excited to see that he’s adapting Patrick Ness’ celebrated children’s book A Monster Calls for his third feature, which concerns a little boy coping with his mother’s terminal illness and being bullied at school with the help of a tree monster. Liam Neeson stars as said monster, while Felicity Jones plays the »

'Avatar' Sequel Delayed Until Late 2017

14 January 2015 1:23 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If it seems like there hasn't been much news about James Cameron's three planned sequels to the 2009 blockbuster Avatar, it's because there's not much news to tell. Although the first sequel had been slated for a December 2016 release, the director has revealed that it will now likely come out in late 2017.

"There's a layer of complexity in getting the story to work as a saga across three films that you don't get when you're making a stand-alone film," Cameron told The Associated Press (via ABC News). "We're writing three simultaneously. »

Top 25 Most Anticipated Studio Films of 2015: #2. Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie

14 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Chappie

Director: Neill Blomkamp // Writers: Neill Blomkamp, Terri Tatchell

After the unprecedented success of his debut, District 9 (2009), South African director Neill Blomkamp thankfully avoided stepping right into a sequel, instead making his next film, Elysium (2013). Even though it was another grunge dystopia and was less well received, Blomkamp proves to be an innovative genre filmmaker, one of few filmmakers who can do a lot with a small budget and still retain an authorial voice when cast into the studio system. We have high hopes for his latest, which sounds to be a different angle from the filmmaker still working within preferred parameters. Based on his own 2006 short film, Blomkamp’s latest is Chappie, the tale of a robot kidnapped by two criminals and growing up under these strange familial circumstances as he grows into a prodigy. Blomkamp famously cast the members of provocative South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord, »

UK Trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Sci-Fi Action Film Chappie

14 January 2015 8:15 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There's a good amount of new footage featured in this latest UK trailer for Neill Blomkamp's incredibly cool-looking Chappie. I kind of like that Hugh Jackman plays an asshole villain in this. Most of the characters that he plays are likable, but in this one he comes off as being a major prick. It's a good change for him. Chappie has the potential to be a great film, and I can't wait to see it.

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man.

The writing process for James Cameron‘s “Avatar” sequels is so “involved” that he has had to push the release date for the first back to late 2017.

The Associated Press reports the Academy Award winner behind “Titanic” and “The Terminator” dropped the bad news for fans hoping to see the first of three new movies in 2016 while promoting the local film industry in Wellington, New Zealand with “Hobbit” director Peter Jackson. Cameron filmed the 2009 blockbuster there, and has returned to produce the three sequels, which will be released over three consecutive years.

Avatar sequels delayed until 2017, James Cameron cites plot "complexity"

14 January 2015 6:27 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Cameron has confirmed that the forthcoming Avatar sequels have been delayed.

Speaking at an event in Wellington, New Zealand, Cameron said that the "complexity" of the writing process means that Avatar 2 will now be released in late 2017, a year later than anticipated.

"There's a layer of complexity in getting the story to work as a saga across three films that you don't get when you're making a stand-alone film," The AP quotes Cameron as saying.

"We're writing three simultaneously. And we've done that so that everything tracks throughout the three films. We're not just going to do one and then make up another one and another one after that.

"Parallel with that, we're doing all the design. So we've designed all the creatures and the environments [at the same time]."

Cameron plans to film the series of three Avatar sequels back-to-back, releasing them in consecutive years.
