30 July 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Harvey Weinstein, champion of auteur filmmakers? Not always. Earlier this year, Jean-Pierre Jeunet claimed Harv wanted to re-edit and/or recut his latest film, "The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet." It's a complaint that Bong Joon-Ho ("Snowpiercer") and Olivier Dahan ("Grace Of Monaco") have also recently leveled at the head of The Weinstein Company, but even their films got treated much better than this. Essentially being dumped into theaters tomorrow, the studio has finally released the first U.S. trailer for movie. How's that for support? Kyle CatlettNiamh WilsonHelena Bonham CarterCallum Keith Rennie, and Judy Davis star in the movie about a young boy who wins a contest at the Smithsonian Institute, which changes his life.

14 July 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Suffragette from director Sarah Gavron arrives in NY and La on Oct. 23 and begins expanding nationwide over the following weeks after what will likely be a Fall film festival premiere where the feature will begin its awards campaign in earnest. Today, however, the first poster art for the film has arrived, promoting its three biggest names in Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep along with its message of "Mothers Daughters Rebels". Written by Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady, Shame), the film tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to »

Exclusive: New Suffragette Poster

14 July 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Already slated for a prime Opening Night slot at this year’s BFI London Film Festival, Suffragette is already making itself known. We’re pleased to premiere the new poster for the film. Released to tie in with Emmeline Pankhurst Day, honouring one of the main women behind the fight for women’s right to vote in the early 20th century, the poster utilises the colours purple, white and green, which were a key part of the Suffragette movement, with purple signifying dignity, white showing purity and green meaning hope. The colours are woven through the movie.Suffragette tells the tale of the footsoldiers who headlined movement, fighting against ingrained sexism and their own family’s reactions. Meryl Streep plays Pankhurst, while Helena Bonham Carter plays Edith New, and Carey Mulligan is Maud, who becomes a part of their struggle. With Sarah Gavron directing an Abi Morgan script, Suffragette already has a lot of buzz. »

Danny Elfman on Film Scores, 'Simpsons' and Working With Tim Burton

29 June 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The way film composer and former Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman tells it, his whole career boils down to two words: "Fuck it." He muttered that philosophical phrase when he offered an opportunity to write his first movie score – for director Tim Burton's feature debut, Pee-wee's Big Adventure – and the musician said it again when given the chance to perform his now-impressive catalog of symphonic cinematic creations in his "Music From the Films of Tim Burton" concert series.

Meryl Streep is attempting to revive the debate over the Equal Rights Amendment, a proposal that gained steam during the dawn of the feminist movement in the 1970s, but never acquired the necessary votes to add it to the U.S. Constitution. Streep, however, isn’t totally selfless. She’s also promoting her new movie, “Suffragette.” Sarah Gavron directs based on a script by Abi Morgan. The film also stars Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson and Anne-Marie Duff. ...Read More »

'Suffragette', 'Legend', 'Masterminds' and More in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

9 June 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Today's ratings bulletin is a mixed bag beginning with an R-rating for Oliver Hirschbiegel's new movie 13 Minutes, which premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year and will be released by Sony Classics later this year. The pic, also known as Elser, seems to be getting much higher marks than the Downfall director's Hollywood outing, Invasion, way back in 2007 and the all-but-ignored Diana a couple years ago. Next is Legend which gets an R-rating as we would expect as Tom Hardy takes on the dual role of playing London's most notorious gangsters, Reggie and Ron Kray. Two PG-13 ratings of note, one for Masterminds and the other for Suffragette. The first is a comedy, the other is an awards season contender. I've listed the two ensemble casts below... I'm pretty sure you'll be able to match them up appropriately: Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, »

Akira Back on at Warner Bros. With New Screenwriter

9 June 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Another year goes by and we hear about yet another attempt by Warner Bros. to bring the classic anime movie, Akira, to the big screen.  The project has seen a revival at the studio as they've hired a new writer to pen the script.  Come inside to learn more. 

Warner Bros. has been trying to make an Akira movie happen for a long time now.  Every other year or so, we seem to get new information on it, from a new director, to casting rumors, to it being scrapped completely.  Once again, the project is back from the dead, as Warner Bros. has hired Marco J. Ramirez (who's the show-runner on the next season of Daredevil) to pen the script.  As reported by THR: 

Marco J. Ramirez, the scribe who will be co-showrunning the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil, will write Akira, the Warner Bros. long-in-the-works adaptation of the Japanese manga classic. »
