Josh Brolin & Jimmy Fallon Celebrate 30th Anniversary of 'Goonies'

3 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There have been rumblings of a sequel to The Goonies for years, with the most recent, seemingly solid news coming from director Richard Donner saying that a sequel to The Goonies is in development. This is one of those situations where that's been said so many times before hat we'll only believe it when we see it. Still, it's cool that an actor like Josh Brolin still embraces his past association with a movie like that, especially when Christian Bale doesn't seem to want anything to do with The Newsies. So Jimmy Fallon had some fun with Brolin on "The Tonight Show" to honor The Goonies on its 30th anniversary. Watch! Here's Josh Brolin celebrating The Goonies with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on NBC: Considering The Goonies panel that was supposed to happen at Comic-Con got canceled, we're betting that plans that Donner was talking about back in »

12 Crazy Comic Book Movie Rumours That Thankfully Never Happened

21 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Comic book movies are some of the hottest properties in Hollywood right now. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, Fox’s X-Men (and soon to be Fantastic Four) continuity, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and the new DC Cinematic Universe all include films that have grossed hundreds of millions – and even billions in some cases – of dollars in recent years.

As a result, comic book movies have become a genre with a good reputation. Huge, top class and award winning actors, including the likes of Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Andrew Garfield, Chris Cooper, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Jamie Bell, Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, have signed on for roles in them – something that would have been unheard of as recently as twenty or so years ago.

However, the genre could have looked so different and could have taken such a »

Film Review: ‘Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’

20 August 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It may be in 3D this time around, but Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s monotone, monochrome comicbook universe feels flatter than ever in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.” Rare indeed is the movie that features this many bared breasts, pummeled crotches and severed noggins and still leaves you checking your watch every 10 minutes. But that’s the dubious accomplishment of this visually arresting but grimly repetitive exercise in style, set against a sordid neo-noir landscape populated almost exclusively by tormented tough guys and femme-fatale fetish objects. Nearly a decade after the first “Sin City” grossed more than $158 million worldwide, it’s doubtful whether the directors’ overlapping fanbases can muster the same level of excitement for a picture about which the best one can really say is, “It sure beats ‘The Spirit.’ ”

Set in motion not long after the 2005 release of “Sin City,” but delayed following the commercial »

Welcome to the Jungle, Bale, Blanchett & Benedict

20 August 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s a jungle out there, at least where Hollywood is concerned.

With not one, but two Jungle Book films in the works, the Andy Serkis-helmed Jungle Book: Origins is busy adding some big, big names to its roster of jungle residents.

Hot on the heels, er, paws, of the announcement that funnyman Bill Murray is playing lovable bear Baloo in that otherJungle Book adaptation by Disney, Serkis’ film has gone for prestige by adding Oscar winners Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett, and the internet’s favourite Brit, Benedict Cumberbatch to the cast.

Serkis’ version of the Rudyard Kipling story reportedly sticks close to the original text, focusing on the orphan boy Mowgli, played by Bad Words’ Rohan Chand.  A mix of CGI and live action, Mowgli will encounter Bale’s Bagheera the panther and the slithery charmer Kaa the snake played by Blanchett.  After perfecting his taunting and »

Very Famous People to Lend Their Voices to New Jungle Book Movie

Yesterday, the news came out that Benedict Cumberbatch will be providing the voice of Shere Khan in the Andy Serkis–directed adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Today, the rest of the cast was announced and, boy, are two of these people famous. The Hollywood Reporter reports Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett will provide the voice of animals. No, Bale is not going to voice a bat, sillies. He’ll be Bagheera, a panther and the human protagonist Mowgli’s guide through all the jungle bookery. Cate Blanchett will voice Kaa, the python who in the Disney cartoon constantly tries and fails to eat Mowgli. Rohan Chand, who co-starred in Jason Bateman’s Bad Words, will voice Mowgli.

20 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Two studios producing either very similar or identical films isn’t anything new. Over the next year we’ll witness another of these all too familiar showdowns when Disney’s live-action The Jungle Book releases in late 2015, followed by Warner Bros.Jungle Book: Origins a year later. Disney has director Jon Favreau helming their adaption of Rudyard Kipling’s short stories about the young jungle boy Mowgli and his animal companions, while Andy Serkis is directing Origins for WB.

Already the two films are trying their best to distinguish themselves, as their very different choices in directors indicate. The casting, too, indicates the films are setting on different paths since Disney’s The Jungle ...
