Geena Davis Wants to Return for 'Beetlejuice 2'

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Beetlejuice 2 is without a doubt happening, though Warner Bros. has not issued a start date or a release for this highly-anticipated sequel which will see the return of the Ghost with the Most, originated by Michael Keaton. In previous interviews over the course of the last two years, actors Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder, as well as director Tim Burton, have all confirmed they will return. But we haven't ever heard from the rest of the original cast. Until now. It seems Geena Davis is very open to returning.

By the time Beetlejuice 2 gets underway, it will be almost 30 years since the original opened in 1988. We've had to wait nearly two decades for a sequel to finally see the light of day. In the first movie, Geena Davis played the lovable ghost Barbara Maitland, who, along with her deceased husband, must call on Beetlejuice to rid their home of some unwanted guests. »

Alec Baldwin Calls Out Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump for "Bullshit Warmongering"

1 October 2015 5:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

When it comes to the seemingly endless list of Republican presidential candidates, Alec Baldwin says he's trying to ignore the hype -- but that doesn't mean staying quiet on the issue he says is most ignored in politics today: peace. At last night's Clio Awards in New York City, Baldwin spoke to The Hollywood Reporter briefly about his thoughts on the 2016 presidential race -- even though he's doing his best to reserve comment until 2016. "I think there's a lot of people in that game, and it's all going to change after the first of the year [of campaigning] so we'll

The Intern has been panned by film critics. Why am I not surprised?

30 September 2015 7:12 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Nancy Meyers, director of The Intern, has a string of commercially successfully films about women to her name. But critics have always given her a raw deal

Having always thought of cinema as a safe space, I was ready to cry about five minutes into Nancy MeyersThe Intern, and then continued wailing and sniffling until the end credits rolled. There’s something about her films that acts as weaponised emotionality, and this lovely, gentle movie about life, ageing and death got me good.

It’s also bloody funny, much like Meyers’ previous film It’s Complicated, which is for my money one of the finest sex comedies of the past decade. (It’s hard to argue with Alec Baldwin cupping his hand over Meryl Streep’s vulva and musing, “Home, sweet home!”)

Amazon Picks Up Michael Bay, Carlton Cuse Series Based On ‘Jack Ryan’ Franchise

30 September 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Amazon is getting a new title about one of the most popular action heroes of recent literary history. The streaming video service has picked up an untitled series, based on the Jack Ryan books by Tom Clancy, from executive producers Michael Bay and Carlton Cuse.

Variety reports Amazon has given a series commitment to the Bay-Cuse Jack Ryan project, rather than first ordering a pilot and soliciting viewer feedback as is tradition for the digital video giant. The project was originally announced by Deadline as various entertainment outlets like Netflix, A&E, and Fox bid on the series. The number of episodes for the Jack Ryan Amazon show hasn’t been announced at this time.

The project will be produced by Bay’s Platinum Dunes brand, alongside Skydance Media and Paramount TV. Cuse, known for his work on Lost, will lead the Jack Ryan series with fellow Lost showrunner and writer Graham Roland. »

Will Smith’s ‘Concussion’ to Premiere at AFI Fest

30 September 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Will Smith’s drama “Concussion” will make its world premiere at the AFI Fest.

Based on a 2009 GQ article, the film tells the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian-born forensic neuropathologist who found Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in the brains of NFL players, discovering a link between football injuries and early-onset dementia that could lead to death. He became at odds with the NFL after the diagnosis.

The movie made headlines recently after the New York Times posted a story centered around emails unveiled by hackers suggesting that Sony executives made unspecified edits to avoid angering the NFL. Sony spoke out against the article, claiming it was “written by individuals who have not seen the film” and that the piece “contains many misleading inferences.”

Sony’s “Concussion”, written and directed by Peter Landesman, is produced by Ridley Scott, Giannina Scott, David Wolthoff, Larry Shuman and Elizabeth Cantillon. It will play at AFI on Nov. »

Jack Ryan to make the jump to the small screen with Amazon

30 September 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Among the most memorable characters in Tom Clancy’s writing ouevre has been Jack Ryan, as the character who finds himself wrapped up in political intrigue in any situation has been the focus of eleven books, ten from Clancy and one from Mark Greaney that was authorised by Clancy’s estate. There have also been numerous attempts to bring the character to the big screen, with Alec Baldwin first taking on the role with 1990’s The Hunt For Red October. Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck have also taken on the character before Chris Pine, who most recently stepped into Ryan’s shoes with 2014’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Now, however, the character is poised to enter a third medium, that of the small screen.

The Honeymoon Killers

The advertising promised a surfeit of sleaze -- but the film is a superior thriller about a real-life, low-rent serial killers from back in the late 1940s. Tony Lo Bianco and the great Shirley Stoler are Ray and Martha, mixed-up lovers running a Merry Widow racket through the personals ads in romance magazines. Leonard Kastle's film is dramatically and psychologically sound, while the disc extras detail the true crime story, which is far, far, sleazier.

Jack Ryan Is Heading To The Small Screen

23 September 2015 4:13 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Paramount has revealed it's plans for Jack Ryan, the agent made popular on film by Harrison Ford. While the latest entry in the film series of the character, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit was no means a flop (in actual fact it's an entertaining and polished political thriller), neither did it ignite the revival that had been hoped. Well, good news for his fans today; Jack Ryan will return to our screens, only this time he'll be getting his own tv show. The downside to this? It's a certainty that Chris Pine won't be returning to the role that has also been taken on by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. Carlton Cuse, who produced hits like Lost, Bates Motel and most recently The Strain, looks set to be named as showrunner for the series but no word yet on the style of the show. Will it be more politically charged like Homeland, »

23 September 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation has continued to break records upon its release in China this past weekend by becoming the highest-grossing 2D Hollywood film of all time.

The Christopher McQuarrie-directed action spectacular from Paramount and Skydance has now earned over $124 million since its release on September 8th, surpassing Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, which held the record previously with $122 million.

On its release, the film has also set a new record for the biggest 2D opener in the Middle Kingdom with $18 million. With both records now taken, the fifth film in the franchise has now taken over $656 million worldwide, and will probably beat the $694.7 million grossed by its predecessor, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.
