Academy Award voters love to give accolades to overdue veterans – unless they're women, of course, but that's another story. Will that sentiment help Bruce Dern ("Nebraska") or Robert Redford ("All is Lost") win Oscar this year? The trend of elderly actors finally winning can usually be seen in the supporting race, where Jack Palance ("City Slickers"), James Coburn ("Affliction"), Alan Arkin ("Little Miss Sunshine"), and Christopher Plummer ("Beginners") have succeeded, but every once in a while it happens in the lead race too. John Wayne triumphed on his third and final nomination for "True Grit" in 1969 and, after four unsuccessful bids, Jeff Bridges finally received his kudos for "Crazy Heart" in 2009. This year, Best Supporting Actor seems to be a young man's game, with Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"), Michael Fassbender ("12 Years »

Last year at this time, Argo had just surpassed the $100 million mark at the box-office on its way to winning three Oscars, including the statue for Best Picture. Ben Affleck’s true Hollywood story of the CIA’s risky mission to rescue six U.S. diplomats from the angry hive of the Iranian Islamic revolution in 1979 was bold, confident filmmaking, and his emergence as a sentimental favorite during awards season was as delightful as it was unlikely, considering the many ups and downs of his career. Fifteen years after Good Will Hunting, 10 years after Gigli, and five years after becoming »

Warner-based producer Bill Gerber is hopeful that “Grudge Match” will offer a parallel box office success story to the 2008 hit “Grand Torino,” which starred Clint Eastwood and went on to gross $270 million worldwide. Warner Bros. opened “Gran Torino” in limited release in mid-December and expanded it in January as the drama caught on to become Eastwood’s highest grossing film by far.

You’ve seen him play Dracula and Sherlock Holmes, Sith lords and dark wizards, but have you ever heard Christopher Lee sing... about booze? And doing so in an effort to corrupt an alcoholic superhero into falling off the wagon? While surrounded by sexy back-up dancers and a goblin?
If you can answer yes to all of the above, then you’ve obviously see the 1983 Australian superhero musical comedy The Return of Captain Invincible.
From Philippe Mora, the director of Howling III: The Marsupials, The Beast Within, and Communion, and Steven E. de Souza, the writer of 48 Hours, The Running Man, and Die Hard (who co-wrote with Andrew Gaty), comes a musical comedy starring Alan Arkin as a bumbling alcoholic superhero (you thought Hancock did it first?) lured out of drunken retirement to save the world when his old nemesis Mr. Midnight (Lee) steals a military superweapon.
We’ve previously showcased Oscar-winners Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone‘s retro-style character posters for 50 First Dates and Get Smart director Peter Segal’s boxing comedy Grudge Match, as well as one with the duo together.
De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr., seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to »

Another week, another one swimming off the Great White Way as the large-scale musical of Big Fish announced it will play its final show on Dec. 29 after 98 regular performances. (But definitely count on it being remembered at Tony time, especially for fearless lead Norbert Leo Butz.) People are showing in droves, however, for two of this week’s new entries: The return of Billy Crystal’s 700 Sundays bagged over $1 million with only six performances last week (most shows have eight), and the Globe-inspired Shakespeare play duo at the Belasco is playing close to capacity every show, cementing Mark Rylance’s status as our premier import. »

Nor will The Spirit of '45, a feature-length documentary by the highly respected English director Ken Loach, or Michael Kohlhaas, a 16th century adventure starring Mads Mikkelsen (A Royal Affair), play theatrically.
Distributors increasingly are opting to release films straight to home entertainment because it.s it tough to recoup theatrical release costs while DVD and Blu-ray sales continue to fall and since Foxtel Movies slashed the license fees for movies by 30%.
Efron is part of the ensemble cast of Parkland, which recounts the chaotic events in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963, when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. Also starring are Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Giamatti, Jacki Weaver and Jackie Earle Haley.

Our journey through the half-remembered, underappreciated films of the 1990s continues. Here, we look to 1997...
Dominated by the box office behemoth that was James Cameron's Titanic, 1997 was a year of high drama and outlandish special effects. The Lost World: Jurassic Park brought with it a new batch of genetically revived dinosaurs, George Lucas dug his original Star Wars trilogy out of the cupboard and added new (controversial) computer-generated sequences, while Nicolas Cage and John Travolta did impressions of one another and fired guns in John Woo's delirious action movie, Face/Off.
It was a varied year for movies, for sure, particularly by 21st century standards; it's difficult to imagine a British feel-good comedy about amateur male strippers (The Full Monty) getting into the year's 10 highest grossing films these days. But among all those winners, there had to be some »
Oscar-winners Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro are again featured (and badly photoshopped) in a brand new one-sheet for their sporting rivalry comedy Grudge Match. The film reunites the duo, famed for their portrayals boxing legends in Rocky and Raging Bull respectively, for the first time since 1997′s superb Cop Land. The film also features the supporting cast of Alan Arkin, Kevin Hart, Kim Basinger, Jon Bernthal and is directed by Get Smart’s Peter Segal.
Check out the poster below and scroll down a little official synopsis:
De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. »

Hollywood has carved out a bit of a holiday-movie formula . and it somehow involves the great Diane Keaton. The loveable star of The Family Stone, Something Gotta Give, The First Wives Club and the Father of the Bride movies will dial into another celebrity-stacked holiday ensemble that The Wrap says likely will arrive in theaters next Christmas season. Jessie Nelson (who wrote and directed I Am Sam with Sean Penn) is on board to helm The Most Wonderful Time for Relativity Media. The site reports that Keaton and Alan Arkin . instead of Robert Redford, who was attached at one point . will play Charlotte and Sam, a long-time married couple who are drifting apart and are considering a divorce. Before they decide to call it quits, the couple agrees to host one last blowout family holiday celebration, with all of their grown up kids (and their families) reuniting under one roof. »
We've already seen plenty of posters for the upcoming boxing comedy Grudge Match, but now we have another one with Warner Bros. Pictures releasing another one-sheet featuring aging sluggers Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro...
In Grudge Match, De Niro and Stallone play Billy “The Kid” McDonnen and Henry “Razor” Sharp, two local Pittsburgh fighters whose fierce rivalry put them in the national spotlight. Each had scored a victory against the other during their heyday, but in 1983, on the eve of their decisive third match, Razor suddenly announced his retirement, refusing to explain why but effectively delivering a knock-out punch to both their careers. Thirty years later, boxing promoter Dante Slate Jr. (Kevin Hart; Think Like a Man), seeing big dollar signs, makes them an offer they can’t refuse: to re-enter the ring and settle the score once and for all. But they may not have to wait that »

In development for nearly a decade, the adaptation of Deborah Moggach's "Tulip Fever"has seen all kinds of names — John Madden, Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Peter Chelsom, Tom Hooper — kick the tires, but nothing coalesced. Earlier this year, the wheels started spinning again when Alicia Vikander became attached, and now she may be joined by Dane DeHaan. The actor is in early talks to star in the film, the story of an affair between a man and a woman in 17th century Holland, during a period where tulip bulbs became hot trading items, with a single bulb selling for as much as ten times the average annual salary. But his participation will depend on scheduling with Anton Corbijn's "Life," but hopefully it'll all come together. Justin Chadwick ("The Other Boleyn Girl," "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom") will direct. [Baz Bamigboye] Two of our faves, Alan Arkin and Diane Keaton, are finally going to work together, »
