Second Opinion – Finding Dory (2016)

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finding Dory, 2016.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane.

Starring Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olsen, Ty Burrell, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Bob Peterson, Kate McKinnon, Sloane Murray, Bill Hader and Sigourney Weaver.

Synopsis:

The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish begins a search for her long-lost parents, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.

 

Last year Pixar delivered two original movies, one of which was met with huge acclaim (Inside Out) and the other, not so much (The Good Dinosaur). Their history with sequels has likewise been uneven, ranging from great (Toy Story 2 & 3) to decent (Monsters University) to poor (Cars 2), so I was very relieved to discover that Finding Dory is a truly great film – in my opinion just as good (if not better) than Finding Nemo.

Sigourney Weaver Leaps To Defense Of Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie

29 July 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If all things go according to plan over at 20th Century Fox, some time after Alien: Covenant slithers into theaters, Sigourney Weaver and Neill Blomkamp will be reteaming for a new entry in the Alien canon – one that will seemingly wrap up any loose ends for Ellen Ripley.

It’s a “gangbuster” script, according to James Cameron, though much of the excitement swirling around that shelved sequel can be traced back to Weaver and Blomkamp’s collaboration on Chappie, the divisive sci-fi that bowed early last year.

Coming off the back of District 9 and Elysium, critics felt the South African filmmaker succumbed to a classic cast of style over substance with the 2015 release. But as the actress revealed in an interview with Collider, Weaver couldn’t disagree more, admitting that she was “astonished” to find that Chappie had divided opinion.

“I’m astonished when I read the, ‘disappointing Chappie. »

“Dudes, Think Of What It Is!”: Sigourney Weaver Defends Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Chappie’

29 July 2016 7:04 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ever since releasing “District 9,” Neill Blomkamp has been somewhat banged up by critics and fans. The social issues sci-fi “Elysium” wasn’t particularly well-received, and when he returned two years later with “Chappie,” the film was laughed off by many who couldn’t get on the same wavelength as the high concept movie about a sentient […]

Watch James Cameron’s Sigourney Weaver-Narrated Short Film About Climate Change

28 July 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It is, I think, essential that a film-centered publication doesn’t throw its hat into the too-large, shriek-filled tunnel that is American electorate discourse, so I’ll tread lightly when posting this new short by James Cameron — one that concerns climate change, premiered at the Democratic National Convention last night, and attacks a major party’s candidate while exalting the efforts of another. But we’re just here for the cinema! (Maybe.)

Anyway, it’s nice to see something from Cameron, even if that something is only a few minutes long and in large part consists of pre-existing footage. (Call this the “Avatar Effect.”) While one might think Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sigourney Weaver‘s participation are about the only thing that give this an auteurist stamp, consider the relationship of this short’s apocalyptic visions with the likes of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, The Abyss, and Titanic… or, well, don’t, »

28 July 2016 2:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Two of Spain’s most anticipated titles of the year – Alberto Rodriguez’s true-life Spanish espionage expose “Smoke & Mirrors” and Rodrigo Sorogoyen’s serial-killer procedural “May God Save Us” – will world premiere in main competition at the 64th San Sebastian Festival.

Starring Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Felicity Jones, Spaniard Juan Antonio Bayona’s “A Monster Calls” will celebrate its European premiere at San Sebastian, screening out of competition, as announced last week.

Presented Thursday in Madrid, the 11 Spanish features selected for this year’s San Sebastian invite several off-the-cuff conclusions. First, eight are world premieres: The large spread of fresh films from Spain remains one of San Sebastian’s biggest lures.

Playwright David Auburn in Talks for ‘Charlie’s Angels’ Reboot

27 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony is in talks with Pulitzer Prize winner David Auburn to write the screenplay for the movie reboot of “Charlie's Angels.”

Auburn’s play “Proof” won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for drama and he co-wrote the script for the 2005 film starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Anthony Hopkins, Hope Davis and Jake Gyllenhaal. Auburn also wrote “The Lake House,” starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, and directed and wrote “The Girl in the Park” with Sigourney Weaver and Kate Bosworth.

Elizabeth Banks came on board to direct the rebooted film in September. Banks will also produce via her Universal-based Brownstone production company with her husband and producing partner Max Handelman.

The show “Charlie's Angels” launched in 1976 on ABC and lasted five seasons with Farrah Fawcett, Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith portraying private detectives working for a benefactor named Charlie. Cheryl Ladd replaced Fawcett, with Shelley Hack and Tanya Roberts joining the series in later years. »

Movie Review – Finding Dory (2016)

27 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finding Dory, 2016.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane.

Featuring the voice talents of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olsen, Ty Burrell, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Bob Peterson, Kate McKinnon, Sloane Murray, Bill Hader, Sigourney Weaver, Brad Garrett, Allison Janney, Vicki Lewis, Austin Pendleton, Stephen Root, and Willem Dafoe.

Synopsis:

Dory is on a desperate mission to find her family. With the help of Marlon and Nemo, they end up at a Marina that introduces our friends to new animals and clues to a past Dory never knew she had…

When Finding Dory was announced, many were sceptical. Two years prior, the dreadful Cars 2 marked a low-point for Pixar while Monsters University was due for release. Between 2010 and 2013 only the lacklustre Brave was an original. Finding Nemo was always a complete film, famous for a heart-wrenching opening and a dark »

James Cameron Explains Decision To Spin Out Four Avatar Sequels

27 July 2016 7:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Presiding over an international box office haul of $2.78 billion, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that 20th Century Fox and director James Cameron are keen to push on with Avatar 2. But both parties are currently dreaming bigger – much bigger.

Last we reported on the long-gestating follow-up, Cameron had hatched plans for four fully-fledged sequels rooted in the lush, alien world of Pandora. All entries in the extended Avatar saga are due to shoot concurrently which is, as the filmmaker told Variety during Sdcc 2016, a tale that grew immensely in the telling.

“The ‘Avatar’ story arc was originally meant to be a trilogy, but I overwrite, and my writers overwrote as well,” he told Variety. “But basically, the first of the sequels cloned itself and became two films, so now it’s four films. And the studio’s very happy with it. They have an opportunity to make more money, »

What Will the Movie Industry of 2040 Look Like?

26 July 2016 1:06 PM, PDT | Corona's Coming Attractions | See recent Corona's Coming Attractions news »

This past weekend the 2016 San Diego Comic Con took place. On the biggest attendance day of the con, one of the events was a panel celebrating the 30th anniversary of Aliens, released on July 20, 1986. Seven thousand fans sat inside Hall H cheering on star Sigourney Weaver, director James Cameron and another half-dozen of the cast and producing talent behind Aliens.

On one hand, it's incredible to think that, 30 years after the release of Aliens, it would still prove to be an incredibly popular and often quoted movie. The impact of Aliens on Hollywood's sequel factory and action/adventure landscape cannot be dismissed.

On the other hand, can you imagine going to the Comic Con of 1986 and attending a panel celebrating the 30th anniversary of another sci-fi movie that's often credited for elevating its genre, Forbidden Planet? I can't help but think that a Forbidden Planet panel held in '86 would »

James Cameron Explains Why We're Getting Avatar 5

26 July 2016 12:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been seven years since director James Cameron first took us to the magical world of Pandora with his blockbuster Avatar breaking box office records left and right, earning a worldwide total of $2.7 billion that still hasn't been beaten, not even by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Since then, the filmmaker has been quite busy prepping his sequels, which keep expanding more and more. While it was originally supposed to be a trilogy, the filmmaker announced in April that Avatar 5 is now happening, with Avatar 2 being pushed to a December 2018 release date. During an appearance at Comic-Con over the weekend, the director tried to explain why the world of Pandora keeps getting bigger and bigger.

The filmmaker reunited with Sigourney Weaver and producer Gale Anne Hurd for a 30th Anniversary panel celebrating Aliens. After the panel, Variety caught up with James Cameron, who revealed why his movie trilogy has expanded to five movies. »

Toronto Film Festival 2016: What Films Will Contend For Oscar Gold After Tiff Premieres

26 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, announced its lineup today with a ton of potential Oscar contenders — but it’s not the only showcase that some of them will have in the fall. Tiff has been sensitive of late about Labor Day weekend rival Telluride’s annual panoply of unannounced Oscar contenders. However, the two film events work in concert, as the earlier well-curated festival — attended by a small coterie of influencers — builds buzz for the later, sprawling Tiff, with its larger mass of junket media, including the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes.
