Peter Travers' 2017 Alt-Oscars: From Scorsese to 'Deadpool'

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

Come Sunday, a.k.a. Oscars night, we'll all be tipping our hats to the year's winners. But before we do that, here's to the "losers" – the worthy ones of 2016 that, for whatever cockamamie reason, didn't even get a nomination.

In an effort to do right where the Academy effed up, I give you the Travers Awards – my own personal version of the Alt-Oscars. (For those of you playing along at home, the award is an engraved image of a critic screaming.) It's one last chance to single out the »

Van Helsing reboot lands a new writer

22 February 2017 10:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Feb 23, 2017

Universal Monsters shared-universe movie Van Helsing will be written by Wrath Of The Titans scribe Dan Mazeau

Universal Studios’ ambitious shared-universe films featuring classic movie monsters manifests this summer with another reboot of The Mummy. That's set to star Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe. Now, though, we learn of the planned remake of Van Helsing, that has landed a new writer.

According to The Tracking Board, the script for Universal Monsters entry Van Helsing is now in the hands of writer Dan Mazeau. Mazeau, whose only major credited screenplay was the 2012 Greek myth series sequel Wrath Of The Titans, is in the process of rewriting the Van Helsing script after it was originally drafted by The Mummy writer Jon Spaihts (Passengers) and Eric Heisserer (Arrival).

Mazeau reportedly took on the Van Helsing script duty somewhere around last September after being part of the Universal writer’s room, »

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”

O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

“People want something that’s different than everything else that’s out there,” says Damien Chazelle, the writer and director of the massively acclaimed original musical La La Land, as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of the ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast and try to get to the root of the phenomenal success of the film. Indeed, Chazelle’s bold third feature is beloved by critics (it has a 93% favorable rating on RottenTomatoes.com), audiences (it has grossed more than $340 million worldwide) and Academy members (it has been nominated for a record-tying 14 Oscars). The 32-year-old himself is Oscar-nominated for best director and best original screenplay, and if he wins the former, as is widely expected, he will break an 85-year-old record and become the category’s youngest winner ever.

“I have this fundamental block — maybe I’ll always have it, maybe I’ll get past it — but I am essentially Chiron, I grew up like this kid and there are just certain ceilings that I never can imagine myself breaking through,” says Barry Jenkins, the writer and director of Moonlight, as we sit down in his downtown Los Angeles apartment to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “When they happen,” the 37-year-old continues, “they genuinely are an extreme surprise. And for whatever reason, I can’t get through this block that Chiron does not grow up and make a film that gets eight Academy Award nominations.” He then pauses, smiles and quietly adds, “But I guess he does.”

“On the one hand they are extremely close to me, and on the other hand they have nothing to do with me,” the actress Isabelle Huppert says of the many characters that she’s played, as we sit down at the San Ysidro Ranch near Santa Barbara to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The Frenchwoman — an Oscar nominee for the first time, at the age of 63, for her portrayal of a rape survivor in Paul Verhoeven‘s 2016 French-language drama Elle — continues, “I have nothing to do with this woman from Elle who runs a video game company — I don’t even know myself how to work my computer — so I’m completely far from the character.

New Ghost in the Shell Movie Trailer Doesn’t Mess Around

13 February 2017 4:05 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

A few weeks ago we were treated to a very tiny glimpse of Ghost in the Shell, a new action movie starring Scarlett Johansson. Johannson has clearly established herself as film’s number one action star. The only person that comes close would be Jennifer Lawrence in the Hunger Games or maybe Kate Beckinsale or Mila Jovovich. Other than that though, Scarlett has been locked into top female action star status for over a decade now. Ghost in the Shell is the latest video game, Manga, animated series that is trying to become a feature film. It is a Japanese media

“I could not have had a happier place to go when I wasn’t in the midst of the tsunami — the wonderful tsunami — that was Hamilton,” says the actor/playwright/composer/songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda of writing seven original songs for the Disney animated film Moana while simultaneously appearing in the biggest Broadway phenomenon in history. Hamilton, which Miranda created and starred in through last July, won 11 Tony Awards, two of which went to him personally, as did a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur ‘Genius Grant’ and a Grammy Award. For Moana, meanwhile, he is nominated for the best original song Oscar, for his song “How Far I’ll Go” — and if he wins, he will become only the 13th — and, at just 36, the youngest — Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony winner) in history.

“It was an experience of collaboration like I’d never had before,” says the actress Emma Stone of the making of La La Land as we sit down at Santa Barbara’s Biltmore Hotel to record an episode of The Hollywood Reporter‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. The 28-year-old won the best actress SAG Award and is nominated for the best actress Oscar for her portrayal of Mia, a struggling young actress in love with Ryan Gosling‘s struggling young musician Sebastian, in Damien Chazelle‘s original musical — one of a record-tying 14 nominations bestowed upon it by the Academy — which hits home for her as much as anyone. “I do understand a lot of what Mia’s going through,” she says, noting that reading Chazelle’s script for the first time both “lifted me up and broke my heart. »

“It’s utterly overwhelming,” says the actor Dev Patel of his banner awards season as we sit down at the offices of The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. Eight years after Patel first burst onto the scene with Slumdog Millionaire, he has, over the last six months, gone from the triumphant world premiere of the latest film in which he stars, Garth DavisLion, at September’s Toronto International Film Festival (where Slumdog also exploded onto the scene) to a best supporting actor Oscar nomination (his first, and only the third ever bestowed upon an actor of Indian descent), also picking up Golden Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice and BAFTA noms along the way.

“What I hadn’t done before [Slumdog] was properly struggle,” Patel says, “and in-between that film and this film, »

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter review – more dull and deafening antics

Milla Jovovich returns for yet another high-impact action thriller set in a zombified world dripping with yucky horror-violence

The violence keeps coming in this movie, but, if there’s one thing more devastatingly brutal than the law of the jungle, it’s the law of diminishing returns. The sixth film in the Resident Evil franchise might pick up some farewell-tour custom by calling itself The Final Chapter, but the ending naturally leaves things open for a seventh. Just as Kate Beckinsale climbed back into the skintight leathers for another Underworld outing, so Milla Jovovich is back in residence for yet another high-impact action thriller set in a gruesome zombified world, with Iain Glen reprising his turn as the creepy megalomaniac scientist. There’s a great deal of yucky horror-violence testing the limit of that 15 certificate. It often features Jovovich on a motorbike roaring sexily, endlessly, across a post-apocalyptic landscape where »

Ashley Prentice’s bestselling novel, The Chocolate Money is set to make its way onto the big screen in the near future. Kate Beckinsale has signed on to star in and produce the forthcoming adaptation, which centers on an impossibly rich chocolate heiress and her precocious young daughter, while Adam Shankman (Hairspray) has boarded as the film’s director. Production is set to begin later this spring.

The announcement arrives ahead of the Berlin Film Festival, which begins February 9 and is where producers try to sell their upcoming productions to curious investors. Beckinsale will be joined by fellow producers Mar-Key Pictures’ president Leslie Urdang, Miranda Pencier and Kelly E. Ashton (which is not my mother, even though they share the same name) on the upcoming project. Novelist Emma Forrest, meanwhile, wrote the screenplay for the new film.

Adam Shankman to Direct Kate Beckinsale in ‘Chocolate Money’

27 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a pre-Berlin market move, Adam Shankman has come on board to direct Kate Beckinsale in mother-daughter drama “The Chocolate Money.”

Cornerstone Films will be launching international sales to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin next month. UTA is repping domestic rights.

The project is based on Ashley Prentice Norton’s novel with Emma Forrest adapting. The story is set in 1980s New York, centered on the relationship between a rich chocolate heiress and her precocious young daughter.

The mother lives a free-wheeling, rock-star lifestyle, and her extravagant parties are legendary. Dazzled by her mother’s situation and constantly craving her attention, the daughter finds escape in reading beauty magazines and taking photos.

Beckinsale is producing with Mar-Key Pictures President Leslie Urdang, Miranda de Pencier and Kelly E. Ashton. Producers plan to begin shooting in New York City in the spring.

Shankman is directed from a script that Emma Forrest co-wrote with Beckinsale. »
