Trailer Trashin’: Christopher Nolan Launches Into Space with Interstellar

18 hours ago | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. There are only two weeks left in August, and the summer movie season has started winding down. With that in mind, it’s time to start looking ahead to what’s coming out in the fall and winter. And this week’s Trailer Trashin’ examines what looks like a very promising November release – Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi film Interstellar.

Premise: When a wormhole – which theoretically can connect widely-separated regions of space – is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), a widowed engineer who decides to leave behind his two children to join the voyage with the goal of saving humanity.

My take: It’s strange to think that it’s been almost ten years since Batman Begins (2005) came out, and British filmmaker Christopher Nolan went from »

Box Office: ‘Expendables 3′ Fumbles with $16.2 Million, ‘Ninja Turtles’ Tops Charts

17 August 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Expendables 3″ looked like a franchise that needs to be put out to pasture after the latest film in the action junkie series debuted to a scrawny $16.2 million this weekend, according to studio estimates.

“Expendables'” lack of muscle allowed “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” to retain the box office crown it wore last weekend. Paramount Pictures’ reboot of the reptile martial artists series grabbed first place on the charts with $28.4 million in its sophomore weekend. That brings its domestic total to $117.6 million.

Another holdover, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” scored runner-up status. The comicbook adaptation pulled in $24.7 million, driving its total domestic box office to $222.3 million. It looks like it will end up as the summer’s top grossing domestic release, passing “Transformers: Age of Extinction’s” $243.3 million haul.

“Expendables 3’s” opening was a low-point for Sylvester Stallone’s geriatric heroes on a mission pictures. The original film launched »

‘The Trip to Italy’ is as hilarious and delicious as any movie this year

The Trip to Italy

Written and directed by Michael Winterbottom

UK, 2014

There is no one word to describe the relationship between British actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. Not even the aggravating portmanteus of the last decade will do the trick: there’s not enough conflict between the two men to call them “frenemies,” and not enough camaraderie to call their relationship a “bromance.” Whatever is the essence of their unusual chemistry, they ought to bottle it and sell it in pharmacies, for their new film The Trip to Italy may well be the funniest film of the year.

The film is a sequel of sorts to 2010’s The Trip, and each film was itself edited together from the footage of a BBC television series of the same name. The gimmick is that Coogan and Brydon are (fictionally) recruited to do restaurant reviews for the Observer newspaper, with each restaurant »

Review - 'The Trip To Italy'

15 August 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Four years after taking a foodie road trip around northern England and giving us endlessly spot on celebrity impression after celebrity impression, comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back again playing trumped up versions of themselves, but this time in Italy.

The name basically says it all, and the film itself makes no pretense about it being nearly a carbon copy of the first film with a few details flipped and fudged around. This seemingly redundant method of going about a sequel almost always cripples those second films stupid enough not to acknowledge what was so great about the first installment, and much like this year’s winking and hilarious 22 Jump Street—with its knowing nods and meta-commentary on what it means to do the same damn thing all over again—The Trip to Italy captures what was essential about the first time around and embraces it, making this »

Badass Grandpas: ‘The Expendables 3′ and 12 More Seasoned Stars

15 August 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Bette Davis coined the phrase “Old age is no place for sissies,” she may as well have been describing the plot of “The Expendables 3.” Written by and starring Sylvester Stallone, the ensemble film features a cast of mature action vets who aren’t about to trade in their bullets for bifocals just yet. As the third entry in the popular franchise explodes into theaters on August 15, here’s a look at 12 films starring some of the toughest seniors in cinema.

Non-Stop

Continuing his late-career reinvention as a post-middle aged action hero, Liam Neeson plays a federal air marshal who receives a series of threatening texts during a transatlantic flight. Trapping the 62-year old star in a confined location proved a wise decision as the modestly-budgeted thriller opened at No. 1 in the U.S. and earned over $200 million worldwide.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson Signs up for Two More Journey Movies with The Conjuring Writers

14 August 2014 4:04 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Journey to the Center of the Earth was released in 2008 and starred Brendan Fraser, but it was WWE Superstar turned Hollywood’s highest grossing actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who took over the franchise in 2012. The sequel was called Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and also starred Michael Caine.

New Line are now moving ahead with third and fourth instalments in the franchise, with The Rock attached to star in both. Chad and Carey Hayes, the brothers who wrote hit horror movie The Conjuring for the same studio, will pen the scripts for both of these new Journey movies, though there’s no word on a director.

There are also no plot details available as of right now, but the Hayes brothers replace Brian and Mark Gunn (who were hired back in 2012 to write Journey 3), so it appears as if they’ll take the franchise in a new direction.

14 August 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Once Journey 2: The Mysterious Island performed well at the box office, New Line and Walden naturally began figuring out another sequel to 2008’s Journey To The Center Of The Earth, kicking off development of a script. Their plans have expanded somewhat, with news today that The Conjuring duo Chad and Carey Hayes are set to work on not one but two new films.According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dwayne Johnson remains attached to reprise his role as Navy code breaker and pec-pop enthusiast Hank, likely alongside Josh Hutcherson’s franchise veteran Sean. No plot details have been released, and there's no word on whether Michael Caine or Vanessa Hudgens might also rejoin them, though the end of The Mysterious Island left a few hints about a potential trip into space in tribute to Jules Vernes' moon-exploration tales.The Hayes brothers, who have recently worked on earthquake adventure San Andreas »

‘The Trip to Italy’ Review: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Serve Up More Delicious Mid-Life Crises

14 August 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In 2010's “The Trip,” writer-director Michael Winterbottom sent actor-comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (playing “themselves”) on a scenic tour of the British countryside, where the two chums ate extraordinary gourmet meals, performed dueling Michael Caine impersonations, and revealed their soft underbellies of professional jealousy and male menopause-inspired bad decisions. Also read: IFC Books U.S. Rights on Michael Winterbottom's ‘The Trip to Italy’ The band has gotten back together for “The Trip to Italy,” and everything has amplified: instead of just Caine, our stars impersonate all the major cast members of “The Dark Knight Rises”; the restaurants are now in sunny. »

Latest 'Interstellar' Photos Reveal Matthew McConaughey in Space

14 August 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This week's issue of Entertainment Weekly includes two new photos from director Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, featuring stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Take a look at the photos below, then read on to see what inspired Christopher Nolan to make this sci-fi adventure.

Christopher Nolan revealed that Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey was an enormous influence on his career.

"I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey when it was re-released in England, in the wake of Star Wars' success and the craze for science fiction. I was 7 years old, so I couldn't claim to understand the film. I just felt this extraordinary experience of being taken to another world. It had a larger-than-life quality."

Interstellar star John Lithgow, who plays the father-in-law to Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), one of the men sent on an expedition into space to save our world, revealed that the movie has the perfect balance of story and spectacle. »

'The Trip to Italy' (2014) Movie Review

14 August 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It took me awhile, but I finally watched Michael Winterbottom's 2010 road trip mockumentary The Trip the night before watching The Trip to Italy, a sequel bringing back comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, playing semi-fictionalized versions of themselves, for a second foodie tour, this time moving the restaurant-to-restaurant excursion from northern England to the lush landscape of Italy. Like the first film, this originally premiered as the second season of "The Trip", a BBC television sitcom comprised of six, 30-minute episodes, which has been edited down to a feature film clocking in at just over an hour and 45 minutes. This second stab at condensing the duo's escapades generally flows much better than the first, but it's also more lighthearted in many ways, though it isn't without its share of moral quandaries. This time, instead of Coogan getting himself into questionable situations and questioning his life's direction, it's Brydon getting the bulk of the heavy-lifting. »
