Maze Runner 3: Death Cure Gets Delayed Yet Again

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox made a few changes to its release date schedule, delaying the long-awaited Maze Runner franchise finale The Death Cure, while pushing Red Sparrow back a few months as well. The Maze Runner: The Death Cure has been moved from January 12, 2018 to February 9, 2018, the former release date for the studio's The Predator, which will now be releaed on August 3, 2018. Red Sparrow will be moved from November 10, 2017 to March 2, 2018.

Box Office Mojo broke the news of these release date changes, which makes sense for The Maze Runner sequel since production was significantly delayed. Last March, franchise star Dylan O'Brien suffered a serious injury on set which delayed production for almost an entire year. The actor suffered a concussion, a facial fracture and several lacerations from a motorcycle stunt that went awry. While it was initially believed that the actor could return to the set in just a few weeks, »

Why Sony Has the Advantage Over Four Studio Rivals in a James Bond Bidding War

20 April 2017 10:51 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A Hollywood bidding war began this week for distribution rights to “Bond 25,” led by Sony  — which co-financed and released worldwide the last four Daniel Craig movies, grossing a franchise record close to $3.5 billion — and rival studios Warner Bros., Fox, Universal, and prestige indie Annapurna.

While that means Daniel Craig is closer to signing on for his fifth and final Bond appearance, one insider said the distribution decision will take months; that means we might have to wait until 2019 for “Bond 25.” And there’s still an A-list director to be signed, with the departure of Sam Mendes; contenders could include Kathryn Bigelow, Danny Boyle, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Denis Villeneuve, and Susanne Bier.

In terms of Bond bragging rights, distribution is more about prestige than profit, since the franchise is co-owned by MGM and Eon Productions (run by half-sibling producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli), which control 75% of the profits. »

As TV Quality Rivals Film, Showrunners Must Stop Being Embarrassed By the Small Screen

17 April 2017 4:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The “Game of Thrones” creators sparked debate last month at a SXSW panel with the comment that they viewed their hit HBO show as a “73-hour movie.” It’s a common conceit for showrunners to believe that calling what they do “cinematic” is a mark of quality. And there are plenty of cinephiles and prominent movie critics, like the New Yorker’s Richard Brody, who haven’t been shy about what they believe are the limits of television as a medium.

However, “cinematic” is sloppy — for television and for movies. It’s become a hat tip to pretty lighting, majestic backdrops, and lavish sets, stylized camera movement and composition, or a sense of scale — epic battles, explosive visual effects, sweeping tales – that “deserve the big screen.”

David Fincher can probably make something cinematic shooting a short in our conference room with a $500 camera on a tripod. That is to say: »

Why 2007 was a great year for film

17 April 2017 1:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Allison Apr 18, 2017

10 years ago was was a high watermark in Hollywood - and British - filmmaking. We've been looking at why...

Ten years on, and 2007 must surely be remembered as one of the finest years in English-language film-making, quite possibly the best of this century so far. Like 1939, 1976, or 1994, it was one of those years in which a succession of veritable classics came into being. So many, in fact, that some of the best examples were cruelly overlooked by the hype machine of the day. A decade later, it’s high time to look back at 2007 for both its celebrated landmarks and forgotten masterpieces.

Guillermo del Toro’s Guide to Creating the Perfect Movie Monster: ‘No Element Must be Accidental’

17 April 2017 8:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Occasionally, Twitter is a beautiful thing — like when it delivers epic diatribes on creating the perfect movie monster from someone who knows best — “Pan’s Labyrinth” director Guillermo del Toro. The director had some down time while waiting “on a bench in Paris,” so he took to Twitter to dole out some sage musings on cinematic golems, as one does. This is the latest in the famed director’s unofficial Twitter series, which always begin: “13 Tweets on…”

“When an artist has an imbalance between beauty and tragedy, or rage, in his/her sense of self, it becomes quite likely that she/he will look inwards and find monsters as a way to reconcile the two,” he wrote. “Monster creation, to me, is one of the hardest forms of creation. »

The 25 most iconic movie entrances

16 April 2017 12:34 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robert Keeling Apr 25, 2017

Saluting the movie characters who make an impression, the minute they appear on the screen...

One thing that unites all of cinema’s most iconic characters is that they were able to make a memorable first impression. Whether it’s bursting onto the scene in a flurry of noise or slowly skulking their way into shot, there’s a fine art to ensuring a character makes an instant impact on screen. An iconic entrance is not just about a momentary impact however, it can also emphasise a character’s importance and help to cement their influence over the rest of the movie.

There are any number of contributory factors that can be blended together in order to make an entrance truly memorable. These include the accompanying music, the choice of camera shot, »

‘Tales from the Crypt,’ David Chase Miniseries, ‘MTV Unplugged’ and More: A Status Check on Shows in TV Purgatory

14 April 2017 1:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Television is a fast-paced business, where a show can be written, developed, ordered, cast, produced, and aired all within the course of a year. But sometimes, executives get ahead of themselves and shows are announced prematurely, or circumstances change, forcing delay.

IndieWire combed through some high-profile TV announcements from the past few years that haven’t yet seen the light of day, and asked their status. Some are still in the works; some are still “in development,” which could be code for “we don’t want to admit yet that this show is dead”; and some have quietly faded away.

The Zodiac Killer (1971) Blu-ray Coming July 25th From Agfa and Something Weird Video

13 April 2017 3:24 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Atlantis shall rise again! I am the super zodiac!”

Agfa (American Genre Film Archive), a non-profit that preserves the legacy of genre films, is pleased to announce details for The Zodiac Killer Blu-ray, which will be released on July 25! This is the first title of dozens in our collaboration with Something Weird Video following a successful 2015 Kickstarter campaign.

Directed by Tom Hanson, who had previously owned a chain of Pizza Man restaurants, The Zodiac Killer was made to capture the real-life Zodiac Killer. That plan didn’t work. Instead, we got the most outrageous and compelling “tabloid horror” vortex in the history of planet Earth. And beyond. During theatrical screenings, Hanson constructed in-theater “traps” to lure the killer from hiding. These included the use of an ice cream freezer filled with rent-a-cops and a raffle with a motorcycle as a prize. You won’t get insight like this by watching a David Fincher movie. »

David Fincher says “Love” 71 Times on Gone Girl Directors Commentary: This is All of Them

While I certainly wouldn’t consider Gone Girl to be David Fincher’s greatest work, it was a very formidable film that had plenty to like about it.  Frankly you can’t win them all but if you imagine that Fincher hadn’t done anything else and Gone Girl was his movie debut, think about how much hype he’d be getting as a director.    If you own the DVD of the film you might have been through the directors commentary.  If not, I’ll give you a little bit of a review. David Fincher Loved making this movie.  And I don’t mean that metaphorically or

The Handmaiden review

13 April 2017 12:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Oldboy director Park Chan-wook returns with The Handmaiden - an erotic thriller that is downright unmissable...

There’s a lush, operatic quality to Park Chan-wook’s movies, whether they’re dealing with vampires (2009's Thirst) or bitter tales of revenge (Sympathy For Mr Vengeance, Oldboy). The director brings his unwavering eye for minute detail to The Handmaiden, a deliciously lurid thriller which takes Sarah Waters' British novel, Fingersmith, and moves it to 1940s Korea.

At first, it looks as though we’re in for an intimate little chamber piece about a demure handmaiden, her wealthy young Japanese mistress and the latter’s suitor, a handsome nobleman who teaches her how to draw and paint. A passionate love triangle develops between them; Lady Hideko (Kim Min-hee) and Count Fujiwara (Ha Jung-woo) are engaged to marry, yet a frisson of sexual chemistry »

Alien and Predator Figurine Collection: Alien 3 Xenomorph’ Review

10 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve looked at the Marines from Aliens, but this week our Eaglemoss Alien and Predator Figurine Collection review moves back to the Xenomorph. While Alien 3 may not have been the best received of the Alien films, it still had an interesting variation of the alien, based off the animal from which it was born.

Fans will remember that in Alien 3 a Facehugger actually managed to attach itself to a dog. When the Xenomorph ripped itself out of the canine, it came out as a faster variation of the Xenomorph, ready to hunt down the prison staff and inmates.

While David Fincher’s film is legendary for it’s behind the scenes problems, I still think the film stands up well as a unique Alien movie. There are even two cuts of it available, which feature different origins of this Xenomorph’s birth. »

Gemma Arterton Says ‘Runner Runner’ Made Her Want To Stop Being An Actor

Following “The Town,” Ben Affleck gave himself the Terrence Malick experience with “To The Wonder,” and teamed up with David Fincher for the razor sharp thriller “Gone Girl.” But sandwiched between those films was the forgettable “Runner Runner.” While the actor might’ve relished chewing the scenery (and boy, did he ever), the low grade B-movie failed to be elevated by its stars which included Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton.

Scarlett Johansson on Lisbeth Salander casting rumours for The Girl in the Spider’s Web

9 April 2017 3:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month, Sony officially announced that it was moving ahead with a follow-up to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, setting Fede Alvarez (Don’t Breathe) to relaunch the Millennium movie series with an adaptation of The Girl in the Spider’s Web.

As part of the announcement, it was confirmed that Rooney Mara would be replaced in the role of Lisbeth Salander, with rumours immediately pointing to Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson as potential candidates.

Well, according to Johansson – who was initially considered for the part of Lisbeth in David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo – she is yet to be contacted about the project, but her initial interest in the role stemmed from the prospect of working with Fincher.

“I actually found out about that because somebody mentioned it to me, but it never came through any professional,” Johansson told the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via »

What Ben Affleck Needs to Do to Save The Batman

8 April 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Studios don't generally like it when a big budget, tentpole film that they are putting a lot of money behind has some speed bumps. Generally, they like things to run as smoothly as possible so that positive word of mouth remains positive. The last thing they want is to craft this perfect little bow of film, only to have the bow unravel during production, or worse, before the release.

So it probably gave Warner Bros. and DC Films a fair amount of stomach pains when Ben Affleck, very publicly, stepped out of the director's chair on The Batman. The reason he gave was that he didn't feel he could do both jobs. This makes sense as playing a superhero in a movie one is directing, is probably much harder than playing the Tony Mendez character in Argo.

However, Hollywood, and more specifically, the media, can't just accept Affleck's reasoning. »
