Denzel Washington To Receive San Sebastian Donostia Award

23 July 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Denzel Washington will receive a career achievement 2014 Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award at September’s 62nd San Sebastian Festival, the highest-profile fest in the Spanish-speaking world.

Washington and director Antoine Fuqua will also present “The Equalizer” at its European premiere, which will open San Sebastian’s 2014 edition on Sept. 19.

Sony Pictures’ big-screen redo of the ‘80s hit TV show, with Washington playing McCall, a hero who helps the hopelessly helpless, “The Equalizer” is already being talked up as a potential awards contender, though it will not be seen until it world premieres at the Toronto Festival where, on paper at least it weighs in as on of the festival’s highlights and commercial heavyweights.

Oscar talk is a reflection, however, of the kudos trawl for “Training Day,” the first teaming of Fuqua and Washington which earned the U.S. actor his second Academy Award after a supporting actor nod for »

A True Maverick: Top 10 Films of James Garner (1928-2014)

20 July 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Indeed it is sad news to acknowledge the passing of Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated actor James Garner (1928-2014). The Hollywood icon Garner has endured a remarkable show business career during a five-plus decade stretch as he has entertained generations of TV and film audiences throughout the ages. Upon the death of this immensely likable leading man on both the small and big screen many are probably wondering about their mortality at this point. After all, you either grew up with James Garner as a peer or spent your childhood watching him in your living rooms on the boob tube or at the local movie theater.

Although the majority of folks associate Garner with television from his first western series Maverick in the 1950′s to his landmark role as ex-con Pi Jim Rockford in the 1970′s The Rockford Files (some teens and young adults may recall his brief stint as grandfather Jim »

Welcome to Jurassic World With Leaked Visitor's Guide

14 July 2014 1:09 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Spoilers for Colin Treverrow's Jurassic World have been leaking out like a sieve. The latest leak is this brochure that extras were given. It provides lots of interesting new details. One in particular, is that Jimmy Fallon, host of the Tonight Show and former Saturday Night Live cast member, will have a cameo in the film. When visitors arrive at the Gyrosphere they will be greeted with an instructional video hosted by the comedian. This should be a neat way of connecting the film to the first Jurassic Park, which featured Dr. John Hammond (Richard Attenborough), owner of Jurassic Park and founder of InGen, explaining the cloning process. Jurassic World is being directed by Colin Trevorrow, from a screenplay written by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. The story is set 22 years after the events of the first film. The cast includes: Chris Pratt ("Guardians of the Galaxy"), »

Kid’s Corner: Top 10 Steven Spielberg-Directed Child-Centric Films

8 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has taken movie audiences on extravagant adventures of a lifetime during his lengthy course behind the camera when impacting the film industry with his captivating on-screen imagination. Spielberg has shown an amazing range of vision and scope when tackling various movie genres that tap in the collective consciousness of moviegoers. Science fiction, social issue dramas, action and adventure, period pieces, family-oriented fantasies, comedies, war movies–you name it and Spielberg has done it on the big screen in his illustrious film career in directing, producing, writing and promoting.

Although Spielberg has done his share of adult-oriented films that cater to the sophisticated masses he is primarily known for his whimsical kid-friendly fare or at least releases that feature children in some of his escapist gems that may not necessarily be considered kiddie-coated.

Blu-ray Release Date: July 8, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

But to the chagrin of Scotland Yard (represented by The Great Escape‘s Richard Attenborough), the mobster is abruptly kidnapped from under their noses, and Brannigan has to join forces with a whole different breed of cops—including Judy Geeson (Man in a Suitcase) as a fetching if no-nonsense Detective-Sergeant—to track him down…all over a gorgeous 1970s-era London.

Featuring a jazz-inflected score by Dominic Frontiere, Twilight Time’s Blu-ray edition of Brannigan includes the following features:

-Isolated score track

-Audio commentary with actress Judy Geeson and film historian Nick Redman

Steven Spielberg Film Collection Coming To Blu-Ray

2 July 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Steven Spielberg is quite often the first name that springs to mind when somebody mentions the word Hollywood, as the man is responsible for some of the most ground-breaking and truly memorable movie moments since the birth of celluloid. With that in mind, here at We Got This Covered we were very pleased to get wind of the fact that a box set dedicated to the director’s immeasurable impact on cinema is set to be released on Blu-Ray. Quite frankly, we couldn’t be more excited.

Why, you ask? Well, when you think of Spielberg, what films do you think of? E.T? Jaws? Jurassic Park? The list goes on and on for the three time Academy award-winning director – so much, in fact, that you could probably fill plenty more box-sets with the man’s work. But that is not the reason we’ve gotten a little giddy. No, »

The Definitive War Movies: 20-11

26 June 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Top twenty. Now we start to see the more widely recognizable films that people have some emotional attachment to. World War II gets a few mentions in this portion of the list, but this is one of the more diverse sections, overall. We get a mention of the Boer War, the Algerian War, and the Korean War, as well as the only movie about the American Civil War on this list.

20. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)

Directed by: Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger

Conflict: Boer War, World War I, World War II

The only film on the list that spans multiple wars is also probably the least battle-focused film on the list. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp is told through an extended flashback, following Major-General Clive Wynne-Candy (Roger Livesey) as he rises through the ranks of the British military from war to war. The flashback is »

It’s About the Message: The Top 10 Oscar-winning Socially Aware Films

14 June 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Many moviegoers consider the world of film as a reprieve from their current existing realities. This is rather interesting because in looking to escape the everyday realities for a fantasized slice of reality in cinema might seem quite redundant for some folks. However, the realities that are portrayed on the big screen are varied so whatever life experiences are depicted we may not have quite lived that particular episode therefore making it intriguing and fresh for our entertaining curiosities.

Films, when capturing a fragrance of reality through triumph and tragedy, are usually armed with a special messaging about the human condition through sacrifice, self-discovery, suffering and of course social awareness.  In It’s About the Message: The Top 10 Oscar-winning Socially Aware Films we will take a look at Academy Award-winning movies that dared to examine the spirit about being socially aware–through inspiration and insidiousness (or both simultaneously)–and put »

10 People Who Died To Bring You Legendary Films

4 June 2014 3:16 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Anyone with an inkling of what the filmmaking process entails will be aware of just how grueling it can be. From lengthy shoots in which cast and crew labour from dawn to dusk, to sleepless days and nights cutting the footage together in the editing suite, making a movie can be physically and mentally challenging, to say the least.

Sometimes, the risk to health and the dangers involved can be life threatening. Whether it’s a method actor putting your body through the mill in order to achieve the necessary weight loss or gain for a particular role or a stunt performer throwing caution to the wind in order to pull off an amazing action sequence, making a movie as great as possible can come at a very high price.

The following list covers 10 movies in which people made the ultimate sacrifice for their craft, losing their lives in order »

'Mandela' writer blames film's failure on 'guilt-sucking' '12 Years a Slave'

3 June 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hey, remember "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom?" Six months after its Us theatrical release, no one would blame you if it's already slipped to the back of your mind. Despite its prestigious trappings and its unplanned topicality in the wake of Nelson Mandela's death last December, Justin Chadwick's well-intentioned biopic of South Africa's first democratically elected president was among the most prominent of 2013's awards-season hopefuls never to take flight. Critics were largely unenthusiastic, reserving their praise for the film's lead performances, and audiences couldn't be bothered: "Mandela" took just $8 million in the Us, with its global gross of $27 million still falling some way short of the film's production budget. And despite The Weinstein Company's campaign efforts, awards voters were similarly indifferent: Idris Elba managed a Golden Globe nomination, while the BAFTAs rustled up a generous Best British Film nod, but the Academy acknowledged U2's would-be anthemic closing-credits tune and nothing else. »

Trailers from Hell Talks Robert Wise's 'The Sand Pebbles,' Starring Steve McQueen

28 May 2014 8:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, Alan Spencer takes on the 1966 "Sand Pebbles," starring Steve McQueen and Richard Attenborough. Roadshow epics were going the way of the dinosaur by the time Robert Wise's "The Sand Pebbles" appeared in 1966, particularly in the wake of the small films (like that year's "Alfie" and "Georgy Girl") that were speaking to younger ticket-buyers in a way the stodgy blockbusters were not. More’s the pity because Wise’s film, about a machinist’s mate caught up in the Chinese civil war of 1926, is an ambitious attempt to examine both political and personal conflicts against an intriguing historical backdrop. Steve McQueen stars as the rebellious sailor alongside Richard Attenborough whose romance with a Chinese courtesan comes to a tragic end. »
