24 August 2016 6:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid– Ethan Hawke will receive a 2016 Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award at September’s 64th San Sebastian Festival, the highest-profile fest in the Spanish-speaking world.

Hawke will be honored Sept. 17 at a ceremony prior to San Sebastian’s gala screening of Antoine Fuqua’s remake of classic western “The Magnificent Seven,” in  which Hawke co-stars alongside Denzel Washington. The film will close the Venice Festival and then segues to Toronto, where it opens the festival.

Exclusive Interview: Michael Biehn & Jennifer Blanc-Biehn on Indie Filmmaking, Alien 5 & More

18 August 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Many know Michael Biehn from his iconic roles in James Cameron’s Aliens, The Terminator, and The Abyss, but in recent years he and his wife and business partner Jennifer Blanc-Biehn have been a tremendous force on the indie scene with their production company, Blanc-Biehn Productions, which provides a platform for indie filmmakers—including themselves—to tell new stories and interact with their dedicated fan base.

Michael and Jennifer were recently at San Diego Comic-Con to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Aliens, and I had a chance to sit down with the duo to discuss their grassroots approach to indie filmmaking, Michael’s desire to play Hicks once again in a new Alien movie, and much more.

Jennifer talked about the key to being a grassroots production company by interacting with fans and getting involved with talented actors, writers, and female filmmakers.

Film Review: ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years’

16 August 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Directing rock documentaries may outwardly seem something of a departure for Ron Howard, but that’s not to say he’s gone entirely off-brand: It’s fitting that one of Hollywood’s preeminent merchants of wholesome mainstream entertainment has made a portrait of the biggest band in music history that ends comfortably before things turned sour. Covering, as the title implies, the very zenith of Beatlemania from 1963 to 1966, the indecisively named “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years” does, to its credit, gradually capture the growing sense of fame-induced panic and ennui that prompted the Liverpudlians’ premature retreat from live performance, just as their music began to rock that little bit harder. But it comes as little surprise that Howard — a nimble and proficient storyteller in nonfiction and fiction alike, who previously helmed the Jay-z concert pic “Made in America” — hasn’t a natural documentarian’s drive for information: This diverting, »

New Images from J.A. Bayona’s A Monster Calls

12 August 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

New images from EW offer a closer look at the benevolent creature (voiced by Liam Neeson) who befriends a troubled boy (Lewis MacDougall) in A Monster Calls.

Synopsis: “A visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (“The Impossible”). 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor’s father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.”

Directed by J.A. Bayona from a screenplay by Patrick Ness (based on his novel of the same name), A Monster Calls stars Lewis MacDougall, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Liam Neeson, and Sigourney Weaver. The film hits theaters on October 21st, 2016.

The Most Dysfunctional Families in Cinema

11 August 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The dysfunctional family has been an ever-present image in popular culture for decades: the battling husband and wife flanked by their bratty children are perhaps most frequently employed on garishly trite television sitcoms. In the movies, the gloves are ripped away and the reality shines on what is more often than not left unexposed in the darkness. What’s revealed seems to irrefutably prove that Tolstoy was absolutely correct when he wrote: “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”

Now playing in select theaters is Little Men, the newest film from director Ira Sachs, with whom we recently spoke to about its making. The plot follows two teenage boys in Brooklyn, NY who develop a budding friendship, despite the feuding of their parents over the lease of a local dress shop. The film is already receiving raves from critics, including our own review »

Rebel Wilson Will Headline A Remake Of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

4 August 2016 10:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As if wishing to prove correct the accusation that Hollywood is currently engaged in a mission to gender swap its entire back catalogue – as if that goes some way to addressing issues of inequality within the industry – MGM has announced its intention to remake Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, as a female-led project. Rebel Wilson will produce and star in this revisiting of the popular 1988 comedy.

The original starred Steve Martin and Michael Caine as two con men attempting to covertly free an heiress of her money. It is a well-regarded entry into the comedy genre of the late-80s – reflecting the arrogance and excesses of the era, combined with the comedy-sparring of Martin and Caine. This new version – written by Jac Schaeffer – will see the lead roles gender-swapped, as two female con artists pit themselves against each other to manipulate a naïve tech industry genius into handing over his millions.

Alien 5 Is Happening Says Michael Biehn

1 August 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ridley Scott recently wrapped production on Alien: Covenant, which will be the first proper Aliens movie we have had in a very long time. Yes, Prometheus was a prequel to Alien, but it was buried pretty deep back in the lore and was only loosely connected to the franchise. Outside of Scott's new movie, fans are eagerly awaiting any firm updates on the status of Neill Blomkamp's highly anticipated Alien 5. Fox hasn't given any official word on it, but star Michael Biehn seems very confident that the movie is still going to happen.

Biehn of course played the part of Hicks in James Cameron's Aliens, which is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary. Biehn appeared at the panel for the movie that took place during at San Diego Comic-Con, but the subject of Alien 5 didn't get addressed, at least by him. However, the actor recently spoke quite a bit »

Michael Biehn talks Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 and the return of Newt

1 August 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before Ridley Scott decided to put the breaks on the project in order to focus on his upcoming Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant, it looked like Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 was moving full steam ahead at Fox. Sigourney Weaver was on board as Ripley, while Blomkamp debuted a series of concept artwork suggesting that Michael Biehn would also be reprising his role as Hicks from Aliens.

Well, during an interview with Simon Thompson of Forbes ahead of the Aliens 30th Anniversary panel at Comic-Con, Biehn has confirmed that he will be involved in the project – if an when it moves ahead – and he also offered up a few words on the return of Newt.

“[Neill] tweeted out some pictures of me, he said he’s going take the third and fourth film and act like they never happened and things blew up,” said Biehn. “It looked like it was all go and »

Ghostbusters reboot crosses $150 million worldwide

1 August 2016 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s still splitting opinions three weeks after its release, but Ghostbusters is still pulling in the cash.

Facing stiff competition from Star Trek Beyond in its second week, The Secret Life of Pets still pulling in obscene numbers and newcomers Jason Bourne and Bad Moms, Ghostbusters dropped a further 54% to earn $9.8 million domestically. This brings its domestic haul to $106 million, which is more than some experts figured.

The film is also open in most of its major territories now, which has added another $52 million, giving it a worldwide total of $158 million. With a production budget of $144 million and a rumoured marketing budget of $100 million, this is quite the blow of Sony and a lack of Chinese release will see Ghostbusters struggle to turn a profit.

Director Paul Feig has said in interviews that Sony expected no less than $500 million worldwide.

Next week the competition gets stiffer as Suicide Squad »

Finding Dory review – strikingly lovely

31 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A forgetful fish searches for its family in this charming sequel to Finding Nemo

The very best of the sequels attempted by the Pixar studio manage to combine a familiar milieu with the opportunity to explore entirely different themes to the original films. Toy Story 2 (which was written but not directed by Finding Dory co-director Andrew Stanton), for example, looks at the fear of mortality through the prism of the playroom. Toy Story 3 takes on the aftermath of a relationship breakdown. Finding Dory, meanwhile, is slightly less adventurous thematically, in that it reprises the central motif of Finding Nemo: that of the enduring parent-child bond, and the special embrace of family, in all its permutations. However, it is approached with such charm and warmth that it hardly matters that the two films share such similar arcs.

In this case it is Dory, the amnesiac blue tang (voiced »
