Bankrupt Relativity Moves to Block Early Foreign Release of ‘Disappointments Room’

21 August 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Yet another layer of bickering in Relativity Media’s financial collapse was revealed Friday afternoon, when the bankrupt studio filed court papers to try to prevent a Calabasas firm that insures film releases from seizing the thriller “The Disappointments Room.”

Relativity’s lawyers claimed that UniFi Completion Guarantors first tried to grab the film from Technicolor one day before the mini-studio’s July 30 bankruptcy filing. UniFi has continued its bid to gain control of the film to hand it over to foreign distributors, despite a stay from the bankruptcy court intended to prevent such moves, Relativity claims.

The Beverly Hills-based entertainment company asks for a temporary restraining order and injunction from U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Michael Wiles to prevent further attempts to distribute the film overseas before Relativity can release it in the United States.

“A premature foreign release is likely to result in an increased rate of piracy that threatens domestic box office receipts, »

Relativity Bankruptcy: Can One Film Lender Pry Away the Rights to ‘Masterminds’?

20 August 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity Media’s bankruptcy has left scores of creditors desperately hoping that a sale of the failed entertainment company will allow them to collect on millions of dollars in unpaid bills.

In this chaotic environment, one creditor has proven to be unusually aggressive, a film distribution lender with the utilitarian moniker of Rka Film Financing. It is currently attempting to seize control of four of Relativity’s unreleased films, including the Kristen Wiig comedy “Masterminds” and the Halle Barry thriller “Kidnap,” arguing that it has liens on the productions and that the studio’s management fraudulently used money that had been set aside to promote and advertise the pictures to help cover overhead costs.

Even before Relativity’s July 30 bankruptcy filing, Rka’s lawsuit in New York state court raised eyebrows in Hollywood — it labels Relativity Media founder Ryan Kavanaugh a “conman” and demands $90 million in damages. But it’s »

'Underworld 5' Casts 'Outlander' Star in Key Role

20 August 2015 1:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that Screen Gems' Underworld 5 has brought back franchise star Kate Beckinsale to reprise her role as the vampire Selene, the studio is starting to round out the supporting cast. Deadline reports that Outlander star Tobias Menzies has signed on to play a new Lycan leader named Marius. Theo James is also confirmed to star, reprising his role as David from 2012's Underworld Awakening.

The project reunites Tobias Menzies with director Anna Foerster, who is making her feature directorial debut with Underworld 5. The filmmaker directed the controversial Outlander season finale, where Tobias Menzies' character Frank Randall tortured and sexually assaulted Sam Heughan's Jamie Fraser. Deadline reports that this deal wasn't easy to make, but Outlander is a Sony-produced show, and since Screen Gems is a sister company to the studio, they most likely facilitated the deal.

[Casting] - "Underworld: Next Generation" Tobias Menzies joins Underworld 5

18 August 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | www.ohmygore.com/ | See recent OhMyGore news »

Alex Reviews Absolutely Anything – The Absolute Worst Thing Monty Python Has Ever Done

18 August 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Rating: ★★

Everyone has something they regret. Bill Murray has Garfield. Josh Trank has saying yes to directing a superhero blockbuster. I have that article where I said Mad Max: Fury Road wouldn’t be that good. And now Monty Python has Absolutely Anything.

Oh, individually, Messrs Cleese, Palin, Jones and Idle have done worse things, but together – through their smartly silly sketch show and even more accomplished movies – they’ve never produced anything that comes close to this.

The Monty Python™ branding may be lacking from the film, with them only getting a passing mention in the marketing, but all the hallmarks are there. We open with an Idle-esque musical number, the director is Terry Jones and the surviving Pythons reunite to provide the voices of supreme beings who gift Simon Pegg with the power to do absolutely anything with just the flick of his wrist. At this point, »

Tobias Menzies Joins New Underworld

15 August 2015 3:44 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

He’s been most recently known as the sadistic Black Jack on Us cable drama Outlander, but Tobias Menzies is headed back to the big screen. He’s scored a role in the new Underworld franchise entry. The film, which doesn’t yet have an official title, sees the return of Kate Beckinsale’s cat-suited vampire warrior Selene, weaving in elements of the younger generation, including Theo James as David, returning from 2012’s Underworld Awakening. Cory Goodman has been at work on the script, which is aimed at expanding the Underworld universe. And the movie will reunite Menzies with director Anna Foerster, who called the shots on the controversial Outlander finale. His schedule for future work on the show has been tweaked so he can shoot the film and the series at roughly the same time. For the new Underworld, Menzies will be Marius, a mysterious new leader among the werewolf Lycans. »

‘Outlander’s Tobias Menzies Joins ‘Underworld V;’ Reteams With Anna Foerster, Helmer Of Saucy Finale

Exclusive: Tobias Menzies has been set for a major role in Underworld V for Sony Screen Gems and Lakeshore. That film is directed by Anna Foerster, who helmed Menzies in the season finale of Outlander that created a ton of buzz as Menzies’ character tortured and repeatedly sexually assaulted the show’s main character, played by Sam Heughan.

"Underworld 5" Gets "Outlander" Villain, Helmer

14 August 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Tobias Menzies ("Game of Thrones," "Rome") has scored a major role and Anna Foerster is slated to direct the upcoming fifth film in the "Underworld" series for Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment.

Menzies will play Marius, a mysterious new Lycan leader in the film's narrative which sees Kate Beckinsale reprising her role of Selene.

This marks an interesting reunion as the pair's most recent effort together was the first season finale of Starz's "Outlander" series - an episode that put "Game of Thrones" to shame this year in terms of its brutality as Menzies' character both psychologically and physically tortured and repeatedly raped the show's male lead (Sam Heughan) in very graphic scenes.

As "Outlander" is produced by Sony, the deal came about because the show's producers have allowed Menzies to shoot the movie while he is also shooting the new season of the series.

Absolutely Anything review: Monty Python grant Simon Pegg absolute power and it's a terrible idea

14 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Terry Jones; Screenwriters: Gavin Scott, Terry Jones; Starring: Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Robin Williams, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, Michael Palin; Running time: 86 mins; Certificate: 12A

Legendary studio mogul Jack Warner once described the film Bonnie and Clyde as "a three piss picture", so disengaged was he with what was happening on screen he'd duck out multiple times for a bathroom break. Simon Pegg's latest comedy boasts a bladder-friendly 86-minute running time, but this is very much a "check-your-watch-three-times" kind of affair. You'll want to be absolutely anywhere else but sat in a darkened theatre witnessing this comedic travesty.

On paper, it all sounds much more appealing. Pegg takes the lead as school teacher Neil Clarke, a fortysomething ordinary Joe who's hand-picked by a group of aliens (voiced by the surviving Monty Python cast) to test out Earth's value in the cosmos. Granted infinite power, »

Movie Review – Absolutely Anything (2015)

13 August 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Absolutely Anything, 2015.

Directed by Terry Jones.

Starring Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Rob Riggle, Robin Williams, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones.


A group of eccentric aliens give a man the power to do absolutely anything in order to determine if the Earth is worth saving.

The premise of Absolutely Anything will be familiar to fans of South Park.  In one particularly brilliant episode of Matt Stone and Trey Parker’s irreverently astute show, “Pinewood Derby”, a self-professed intergalactic bank robbing alien called Baby Fark McGee-zax (which is of no relevance but is too good to ignore) lands on Earth to take everyone hostage while forcing Stan and Randy to recreate the warp speed that drew him there in the first place, so that he can make good his escape with his massive haul of space cash.  It turns out that *spoiler alert* it’s all an »

Film Review: ‘Absolutely Anything’

11 August 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relatively confident that he will fail but curious to see what might come of the experiment, an alien council endows a perfectly average human with the power to do whatever he pleases in “Absolutely Anything.” Come to think of it, that must have been roughly how the financiers felt when backing Monty Python legend Terry Jones’ latest disappointment, a clunky sci-fi satire set to bomb abroad before it reaches U.S. theaters: Though the pic’s backers can’t have been too shocked by the result, Jones’ potential to surprise, plus his ability to call in favors from friends (including vocal performances from all five surviving Pythons and deceased comedy god Robin Williams), must have seemed to justify the gamble — all for nothing.

Speaking of gods, Jones’ premise — which surely would’ve worked better in animation — is just the sort of which all-powerful deities would approve, be they of the »

Amazon set to stream Whit Stillman’s ‘Love & Friendship’

7 August 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Amazon is getting into the movie business and they’ve added a period comedy to the mix.

According to Deadline, the streaming service has added writer/director Whit Stillman’s Love & Friendship to their line-up of films. The movie was set for a 2016 release theatrically, but will also be streaming on Amazon.

Reuniting Stillman with Kate Beckinsale and Chloë Sevigny, the film is based on the Jane Austen short story and takes place in the 1790s. The film centers on beautiful widow Lady Susan Vernon, who has come to the estate of her in-laws to wait out colorful rumors about her dalliances circulating through polite society. Whilst there, she decides to secure a husband for herself and her rather reluctant debutante daughter, Frederica.

Love & Friendship also stars Xavier Samuel, Stephen Fry, and Emma Greenwell.

Stillman, Beckinsale, and Sevigny also worked together on the 1998 cult classic, The Last Days of Disco. »

There's a new Kylie Minogue song and she dances with aliens in the video

7 August 2015 4:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kylie Minogue has surprised fans with a brand new song, which is out there right now for you to stream.

The singer has recorded snappy-titled track 'Absolutely Anything and Anything At All' as the theme song for upcoming movie Absolutely Anything.

It's an inoffensive, clap-along bop that is sure to sit nicely with the family film it was recorded for. It is not, however, what we'd call a 'classic Kylie' banger.

That said, it also comes with a video which sees her performing the track for aliens, while covered in star dust.

Absolutely Anything is a new film starring Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale, which was directed by Monty Python star Terry Jones.

"Growing up in Australia, Monty Python thrilled, baffled and entertained my entire family," said Kylie. "I'm such a fan. So, to record the theme song for (Python) Terry Jones's Absolutely Anything was a great honour. »

Sony Pictures solidified its slate for 2016 and 2017 by announcing 16 release dates for upcoming films, which include two highly-anticipated genre sequels, Underworld 5 and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is slated for release on January 27, 2016, a date which is otherwise unoccupied.

Back in May, we reported that Kate Beckinsale is returning to reprise her role as the vampire Selene in Underworld 5. She will star alongside Theo James, who is reprising his role David from 2012's Underworld Awakening. Anna Foerster, who served as second unit director on Roland Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, will make her feature directorial debut, working from a script by Cory Goodman. The story reportedly focuses on younger vampires and werewolves who are entrenched in a violent war between both species. Shooting is set »

New Underworld and Resident Evil movies dated

5 August 2015 10:52 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Underworld 5 is heading our way in late-ish 2016, whilst the final Resident Evil film is due in early 2017...

Two relatively long running modern movie franchises are getting fresh instalments over the next year or two, with work underway on both Underworld 5 and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. And we now know when to expect the films.

Underworld 5 won't be a reboot of the series, but it's apparently being put together with getting new people interested in the films a priority. Kate Beckinsale returns for the film, which is going by the name Underworld: Next Generation (there's a Star Trek gag in there, right?) whilst Anna Foerster is directing.

The new Underworld film has now been confirmed for release on October 21st 2016.

Then there's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the sixth and apparently last Resident Evil film. At least until the inevitable reboot. Paul W S Anderson is once again directing, and »
