Steve Martin To Receive AFI Life Achievement Award

3 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Steve Martin has been named recipient of the highly prestigious AFI Life Achievement Award to be presented June 4th and aired on TNT and later on sister network TCM.  After generally reserving this coveted prize to actors and directors who made their mark in dramatic films this is second time in the past three years that the American Film Institute has decided to lighten things up by giving their award to a person who made their mark in comedy.  And it has paid off.  Mel Brooks got the honor in 2013 and it resulted not only in a hilarious and memorable evening, it got higher ratings and brought the AFI special its first Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special  in August.  But Martin is the first recipient who actually started and made their reputation as a stand up comic. And his films beginning with The Jerk  and continuing with such modern comedy »

Malkovich Becomes Einstein, Marilyn, Picasso and Others in Funny, Creepy, Brilliant Photo Series

25 September 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

John Malkovich photos: How to look like a model, from Marilyn Monroe to Albert Einstein (image: John Malkovich as Marilyn Monroe in Bert Stern's 1962 portrait 'Marilyn in Pink Roses') Whether you found Spike Jonze's 1999 mind-invading comedy Being John Malkovich a pretentious bore or the most innovative motion picture since Georges Méliès' The Man with the India-Rubber Head, you'll probably enjoy Sandro Miller's series of John Malkovich photos, in which the two-time Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nominee becomes the real-life characters in some of the most celebrated (and mostly pop, U.S.-made) photographs ever taken. Malkovich's various guises will be featured in the exhibit "Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to Photographic Masters," which runs from November 7, 2014, to January 31, 2015, at the Catherine Edelman Gallery in Chicago. In Being John Malkovich, the likes of John Cusack, Cameron Diaz, and Catherine Keener discover an escape from their drab lives »

8 Former Sitcom Stars With Oscar Buzz This Fall

15 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s an understood rule of comedic actors that they can all do drama, as well. Comedy is harder, of course. But then not every comedic actor is truly an actor. Not every comedic performance is about more than good line readings and having the necessary timing to tell a joke. Stand-up comedians often get starring gigs on sitcoms, but that doesn’t mean they’ll wind up with an Oscar nomination someday. (Sorry, Sinbad.) Those who do end up with Academy recognition are those who were always set to shine on the big screen and wound up on TV as a short little detour along the way. Jennifer Lawrence, for example. And Tom Hanks. And Leonardo DiCaprio. But there are also former TV comedy stars who do great work in dramatic movies and never garner Oscar attention, and then they have to go back and do a Dumb and Dumber sequel.

Andrew Garfield Fires Back at 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Critics

10 September 2014 6:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The summer movie season is finally behind us, and, as far as box office receipts go, it was one of the worst in recent memory. Kicking off the season was The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which earned $202.8 million domestically and $708 million worldwide, both tallies less than its predecessor The Amazing Spider-Man's domestic ($262 million) and worldwide ($757.9 million) totals.

While doing press for his new drama 99 Homes at the Toronto International Film Festival, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield fired back at critics for their negative response to the film, hinting that studio interference may have lead to the sequel's lackluster box office performance and its bad reaction from many reviewers and fans alike.

"It's interesting. I read a lot of the reactions from people and I had to stop because I could feel I was getting away from how I actually felt about it. For me, I read the script »

Matthew Warchus and Stephen Beresford interview: Pride

9 September 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of its release in UK cinemas, we talk to the director and writer of the funniest film of the year, Pride. It's one of the best, too.

Regular readers will know that we've been banging the drum for the film Pride for a little while now. It's a fabulous comedy, whose laughs are as fierce as its politics, and it arrives in UK cinemas this Friday.

In advance of that, we chatted to its director Matthew Warchus (returning to cinema for the first time since 1999's Simpatico) and writer Stephen Beresford. Both come from a theatre background (Warchus is taking over from Kevin Spacey at the Old Vic next, and his hugely impressive theatre credits include the Matilda musical), and both were in fine form when we met them...

What particularly intrigued me about Pride is why you chose to tell such an unusual story this way. And I »

Blu-ray Review – The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

3 September 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 2014.

Directed by Marc Webb.

Starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, B.J. Novak, Felicity Jones, Chris Cooper, Chris Zylka and Denis Leary.

Synopsis:

When atrocities threaten New York, Spider-Man must protect the citizens of New York and his loved ones before New York’s heart befalls into tragedy.

Despite helping to change the face of the superhero movie in 21st century Hollywood, the Spider-Man franchise died before our very eyes, delighting and enthralling before crashing and burning. The best intentions of director Sam Raimi notwithstanding, Spider-Man 3 failed, even if it was the franchises’ highest grosser. While many blamed the excess of villains and characters, which led to a horribly disjointed script, it was the studio’s insistence on things (namely Venom) that ultimately derailed our friendly neighbourhood Spidey. Now, 10 years since Spider-Man 2 »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu-Ray Review

3 September 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a summer packed to the gills with superhero blockbusters, one that landed with less grace than a rampaging man in a rhino suit was The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Critics tore into the flick, deriding it for a muddled story, inconsistent character development and, most pressingly, too many damn villains.

And you know what? All of those complaints are reasonable. The movie isn’t perfect – it definitely isn’t amazing. However, after watching it, I have to say, all the Spidey hate seems a little bit overkill. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 isn’t up there with The Dark Knight as one of the great superhero sequels, but it’s also not trying to be. This installment is all about setting up the Spider-Man universe for future adventures and setting Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) on a path towards becoming the hero he’s destined to be. And in that respect, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 »

Arnie will also take part in a black tie dinner event at The Grand Pavillion, Leeds.

“For once I won’t have a publicist saying, ‘Don’t ask him about his private life, don’t ask him how much money he makes, how much is in the bank,’ all that kind of stuff,” he said of the UK dates. “England really was the country that gave me the biggest break in my career. I »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu-ray Review

29 August 2014 5:20 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Marc Webb

Starring: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, Jamie Foxx, Colm Feore, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, Felicity Jones, Paul Giamatti, Embeth Davidtz, Campbell Scott, Marton Csokas.

Running Time: 142 minutes

Certificate: 12

Extras: Making Of, Deleted Scenes, Commentary, Music Video

The reboot nobody particularly wanted spreads its wings into new territory. Having that awkward backstory out of the way means that The Amazing Spider-man 2 can become its own beast. With that in mind, it’s clear to see that this film had absolutely no idea of what it wanted to do. This is The Amazing Spider-man 2’s greatest problem, it is all over the place in terms of tone and plot points. We start off with an interesting sequence set aboard a plane. The scene gives us some more backstory into Peter Parker’s parents’ disappearance.  Hitting hard along the lines of spy espionage thrillers or terrorist centred action films of the 90s, »

Win Run-Of-Engagement Passes To See Forrest Gump in IMAX in St. Louis

27 August 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Paramount Pictures is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Forrest Gump with an exclusive one-week IMAX release and Wamg is giving away run-of-engagement passes to see the movie.

Slow-witted Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) has never thought of himself as disadvantaged, and thanks to his supportive mother (Sally Field), he leads anything but a restricted life. Whether dominating on the gridiron as a college football star,

fighting in Vietnam or captaining a shrimp boat, Forrest inspires people with his childlike optimism. But the one person Forrest cares about most may be the most difficult to save — his childhood love, the sweet but troubled Jenny (Robin Wright).

From director Robert Zemeckis, the film opens September 5, 2014 exclusively in IMAX® Theaters for one week.

This is a limited engagement and will only be running Friday, September 5 through Thursday September 11.

Local St. Louis area readers are invited to win run-of-engagement passes.

'Sinister Six' Causing Outdated 'Spider-Man 2' Blu-ray Features?

24 August 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, we reported that the Target exclusive Blu-ray release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 includes confirmation from director Marc Webb that the end credits stinger includes The Sinister Six villains Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio, although the filmmaker later admitted that he isn't even sure if they will appear in the spin-off. However, given Sony's recent announcement that The Sinister Six will hit theaters in 2016 and The Amazing Spider-Man 3 has been moved to 2018, some believe that these special features are already outdated.

Among the details Marc Webb revealed in last week's video include a deleted scene where The Gentleman a.k.a. Gustav Fiers (Michael Massee) approaches the cryogenically frozen head of Norman Osborn (Chris Cooper), which paves the way for the OsCorp founder to return for "the next movie," which we believe he meant The Amazing Spider-Man 3. We now know that "the next movie" will be The Sinister Six, »

During the end credits for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, fans could use the Shazam app, which revealed a series of images teasing the villainous lineup for the upcoming Sinister Six movie.

A video from that bonus disc has hit the web, where Marc Webb confirms Kraven and Mysterio are a part of The Sinister Six line-up.

Take a look at this video from YouTube user Amazing Spider Man, then read on for more details.

When the images were first revealed, some thought that the mask actually belonged to Chameleon, but that was debunked shortly thereafter. However, we reported in April, soon after the images debuted, that »
