'The Bastard Executioner': Inside Kurt Sutter's Bloody New Show

12 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Kurt Sutter would like to get something off his chest. The showrunner behind the wildly successful, dearly beloved, bad-ass Shakespearean biker melodrama Sons of Anarchy knows that yes, because his new FX historical epic The Bastard Executioner has swords and horses and castles, some people are bound to compare it to Game of Thrones. He's perfectly okay with that. In fact, he can even see the parallels himself. HBO's show is constrained by the novels it's adapting, he mentions. "And we're like that with actual history," Sutter proclaims.

Actor Woods Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit Targets Twitter Users: Slander Case or Attack on Freedom of Speech Online?

31 August 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

James Woods in 'Videodrome.' James Woods in $10 million Twitter lawsuit feud: Crassly vocal right-wing actor goes after two crassly vocal users who attacked him In a letter dated Aug. 21, '15, Twitter attorney Ryan Mrazik ridiculed Surf's Up and Scary Movie 2 actor James Woods, while also highlighting the potentially dangerous precedent of a $10 million lawsuit the 68-year-old entertainer filed against a Twitter user last July. The lawsuit was followed by a subpoena demanding that the social media giant reveal the user's identity and that of another user with whom Woods has been embroiled in the (generally) no-holds-barred Twitterverse. In case you're unfamiliar with the name, these days the two-time Oscar-nominated Woods is best known for a supporting role as a right-wing sociopath in Roland Emmerich's thriller White House Down, starring Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx (as a liberal-minded U.S. president despised by Woods' character), and for his relentless, »

'Jurassic Park' Animated TV Show Art Reveals Abandoned Series

19 August 2015 7:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the monstrous box office success of Jurassic World, which has earned over $1.6 billion worldwide, the franchise is more popular than ever. It may surprise some fans to learn that, after the initial success of Jurassic Park, Universal Cartoon Studios was developing an animated TV series, but, surprisingly, it never got off the ground. Concept artist William Stout has posted a number of his own illustrations from the proposed series on his official website, with all of these pieces available for purchase. FromDirectorStevenSpielberg.tumblr.com also discovered a post from 2014, where the artist spoke about the trailer for the series, and why it never came to pass.

"Although I own a copy, I don't think this trailer is available anywhere. Upon the success of Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park movie, all kinds of ancillary projects abounded: toys, games, novelties, apparel, etc. Towards the end of all of this merchandising I »

Just how far can the 'Jurassic World' sequel really go?

23 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are opening the park again for a Jurassic World sequel in 2018

23 July 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be back for another prehistoric adventure when a Jurassic World sequel opens in 2018.

Universal Pictures officially announced today (July 23) that a follow-up to this year's record-breaking box office titan will be released on Friday, June 22, 2018.

These are the 15 best movies of 2015 so far: But do you agree with the list?

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is back in the fold to pen the sequel's screenplay with Derek Connolly, despite having initially cast doubt on his return to the franchise.

An announcement of a sequel comes as little surprise, given that Jurassic World is the highest-grossing movie ever distributed by Universal.

Jurassic World also currently sits as the third highest-grossing movie of all-time, having recently overtaken The Avengers. It sits behind only Avatar and Titanic.

Karlovy Vary Festival President Jiri Bartoska Looks Back on Early Acting Career

17 July 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star of stage, screen and TV for five decades in the Czech Republic, Jiri Bartoska is best known outside his home country as president of the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, which wrapped its 50th edition July 11. Bartoska, 68, has overseen the fest since its privatization a little over 20 years ago. But long before that,Variety noted his presence in Frantisek Vlacil’s “Shadows of a Hot Summer,” which took top honors at Karlovy Vary in 1978.

What were things like for Czech actors in 1978?

There was a different situation for theater actors and film actors. Theater actors did classic repertoire. At that time, the theater filled in for all the media outlets, which were entirely at the service of the regime. It was usually sold out, because people could compare their current situation with those classic scenes, and find truth in them. With film it was a bit different: Film was a »

Pierce Brosnan: The Hollywood Flashback Interview

24 June 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

I interviewed Pierce Brosnan in conjunction with his third outing as James Bond, in Michael Apted's The World Is Not Enough, in 1999. Brosnan was alternately charming, erudite, thoughtful and intense during our two hour chat. His native intelligence shone through it all, as did a sense of decency which many people seem to acquire after enduring and surviving hardship in their formative years.

Bonding With Brosnan

Alex Simon

There are several dangers in becoming a cultural icon, not the least of which is the stigma that your public will forever keep you imprisoned in the mold of your iconography, allowing the recipient a privileged, if imprisoned, existence, particularly if that person is an artist. Sean Connery faced just such a dilemma during the height of James Bond-mania in the mid-60's. A serious actor, Connery desperately wanted to break out of the action hero mold that was British Superspy James Bond, »

Marketing the 'Jurassic' beast

22 June 2015 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Universal heads orchestrated a precisely calibrated marketing campaign in support of the release that played a critical role in driving the tentpole past $1bn worldwide in record time on Monday.

As production on Jurassic World gained momentum in 2014, top brass at Universal and co-financier Legendary grew increasingly confident that Colin Trevorrow’s action franchise reboot would deliver thrills.

Yet there were potential obstacles. It had been 14 years since Jurassic Park III and 22 years since Jurassic Park, Steven Spielberg’s beloved box office beast that spawned the franchise.

Universal’s global marketing team knew that if their tentpole were to really take off they would need to tap into an enduring love for the series.

“We wanted to make sure Jurassic World was always going to be seen as one of the three big movies this year with Avengers 2 and Star Wars,” says Simon Hewlett, the London-based executive vice-president of Universal Pictures International (Upi, pictured).

Does ‘Jurassic World’ Make You Feel Like a Dinosaur? Don’t Worry, You’re Not Alone

22 June 2015 6:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hard to believe it’s been 22 years since “Jurassic Park.” If that fact alone doesn’t make you feel old, now there’s “Jurassic World” to make those of us ancient enough to remember — and admire — the original feel like dinosaurs.

In theory, the movie is a sequel, but let’s admit it: “Jurassic World” is really a remake — a remake engineered the way Steven Spielberg probably figures he’d have to treat “Jurassic Park” if he were making it for the first time today, at a time when half that film’s problems could be solved by a little invention called the cell phone. (As for Spielberg’s “Jaws”? Fuggedaboudit. We’re living in the age of “Sharknado.” No one’s impressed by a shark anymore.)

For the sake of this column, I’m going to assume you’ve seen “Jurassic World.” Ten days in theaters, and the movie has already grossed nearly $1 billion. »

Oscar-Nominated Actor Biggest Professional Regret: Turning Down 'Doctor Who'

Ron Moody in Mel Brooks' 'The Twelve Chairs.' The 'Doctor Who' that never was. Ron Moody: 'Doctor Who' was biggest professional regret (See previous post: "Ron Moody: From Charles Dickens to Walt Disney – But No Harry Potter.") Ron Moody was featured in about 50 television productions, both in the U.K. and the U.S., from the late 1950s to 2012. These included guest roles in the series The Avengers, Gunsmoke, Starsky and Hutch, Hart to Hart, and Murder She Wrote, in addition to leads in the short-lived U.S. sitcom Nobody's Perfect (1980), starring Moody as a Scotland Yard detective transferred to the San Francisco Police Department, and in the British fantasy Into the Labyrinth (1981), with Moody as the noble sorcerer Rothgo. Throughout the decades, he could also be spotted in several TV movies, among them:[1] David Copperfield (1969).

Oscar Nominated Moody Pt.2: From Fagin to Merlin - But No Harry Potter

Ron Moody as Fagin in 'Oliver!' based on Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist.' Ron Moody as Fagin in Dickens musical 'Oliver!': Box office and critical hit (See previous post: "Ron Moody: 'Oliver!' Actor, Academy Award Nominee Dead at 91.") Although British made, Oliver! turned out to be an elephantine release along the lines of – exclamation point or no – Gypsy, Star!, Hello Dolly!, and other Hollywood mega-musicals from the mid'-50s to the early '70s.[1] But however bloated and conventional the final result, and a cast whose best-known name was that of director Carol Reed's nephew, Oliver Reed, Oliver! found countless fans.[2] The mostly British production became a huge financial and critical success in the U.S. at a time when star-studded mega-musicals had become perilous – at times downright disastrous – ventures.[3] Upon the American release of Oliver! in Dec. 1968, frequently acerbic The »

How Much It Would Cost To Build Jurassic World

15 June 2015 8:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Thanks to the release of Jurassic World, have you been finding yourself thinking about opening up a dinosaur theme park of your very own? Well, if you do, I sure hope that you have about $23,432,400,000 laying around. How do we know that would be the cost of such a venture? Watch the video below and find out! Fandango put together this fun little video celebrating the release of Jurassic World, and as you might have guessed, it actually costs a whole lot of money to create a dinosaur theme park - meaning that Richard Attenborough's John Hammond and his company InGen must have been pulling in some serious cash in order to make the original Jurassic Park. That being said, it looks as though it may have been a good thing that the plan never really worked out, given that the operations cost of the wondrous dinosaur island(s »

Examining the Jurassic Park 4 script that was never filmed

15 June 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Jurassic World bites a hole in our multiplexes, we compares its events to John Sayles' Jurassic Park IV script from a decade ago...

Nb: the following contains spoilers for Jurassic World.

For Universal, the success of Jurassic World is the $500m pay-off to a story which began well over a decade ago. Work on a third Jurassic Park sequel originally began after the release of Joe Johnston’s coolly-received Jurassic Park III way back in 2001, yet the film languished in a pre-production quagmire as writer after writer seemingly struggled to crack the story.

William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom Of Heaven) was the first screenwriter to step up to the plate, announced at a time when Keira Knightley was reportedly in the running for a major role. Around that time, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough were also thought to be returning to their respective roles of Ian Malcom and John Hammond. »

Review: Jurassic World

11 June 2015 6:57 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Cue the music, open the gates, light the torches… the park is open and the dinosaurs are back. It’s been more than twenty years since Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park roared into theaters in 1993, bringing a blend of practical and computer-generated special effects that changed the landscape of what was possible with visual storytelling. The prehistoric came to life, spawning two sequels and now Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. The vision of Jurassic Park from the first film has come to operational life in a corporate-driven amusement park bent on bigger and badder dinosaurs. And the results are as expected, Jurassic World amps up the dinosaur action with exciting sequences, making it feel like a thrill ride while also paying homage to the original film with clever nods and telling humor. However, the action adventure aspect is just half the ride, albeit the half most fans will be coming for. »

Jurassic World Review Roundup: Critics Debate Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard's Chemistry, Love Dinosaurs

10 June 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Have we learned nothing in the last two decades? Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, the Patel Corporation reopens Isla Nublar as a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond (Richard Attenborough). In the aptly titled reboot Jurassic World, in theaters this Friday, Chris Pratt plays Owen Grady, a member of the park's on-site staff who conducts behavioral research on Velociraptors. Jurassic World's attendance rates have been declining over time. To attract new visitors, the genetic engineers at Hammond Creation Lab develop a new attraction: a hybrid dinosaur called Indominus Rex. Predictably, their plan backfires. Big time. The »
