"The Expendables 3" Leaks Online Early

3 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's been famous online leaks before, from the work print of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to the more recent work print of the "Doctor Who" new season premiere. In both cases they were rough cuts with unfinished effects and watermarks galore.

This week though saw perhaps the most damaging early leak to date - a DVD-quality copy of "The Expendables 3" onto piracy sites and torrenting networks, a full three weeks before the film is scheduled to be released anywhere.

Variety reports that copies began cropping up on torrent-sharing sites Wednesday and downloads started to spike Thursday,according to data provided by piracy-analytics firm Excipio. The film has reportedly already been downloaded 189,000 times over a 24-hour period. It's a double blow to the film's distributor Lionsgate as the key demo for the film are often also the biggest users of illegal file-sharing services.

Screencaps attached to the files indicate there are no identifying watermarks, »

Lucy – The Review

15 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

How can a film exist somewhere between being an ambitious Hollywood oddity and a wacky hot mess of a film? Days after seeing Luc Besson’s new film Lucy I’m still trying to figure this out. Going into a Besson film you have to expect a strong female-centered action-fest. The French director has made a career of this going back to La Femme Nikita, to The Fifth Element, all the way to his more recent Indiana Jones and Allan Quatermain inspired period piece The Extraordinary Adventure Of Adele Blanc-sec (which exists relatively unnoticed and is worth checking out if you’re a fan of pulp adventure stories). However Lucy kind of exists in a different conversation than these previously mentioned films for a lot of reasons. First of all, despite her stunning features, Johansson’s Lucy is nowhere near as memorable as some of the leads in these other films. »

Luc Besson Puts His EuropaCorp to the Test With ‘Lucy’

24 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The son of scuba-diving instructors, Luc Besson came of age exploring the depths of the ocean floor and inventing stories out of the debris he would find along the shore. Some 50 years later, he is still playing with rocks in the sand — only now his shoreline is the river Seine and his castle a 667,000-square-foot film studio called Cite du Cinema (literally Cinema City). Built from the shell of a 1930s thermal power plant in the Paris suburb of Saint Denis, the sprawling complex — which includes nine soundstages, a 500-seat auditorium and a full-service restaurant — is headquarters for Besson’s prolific production and distribution outfit, EuropaCorp, plus a host of affiliated vendors and two film schools.

On a recent Friday afternoon, despite a bank-holiday weekend in France, Cite du Cinema was a hive of activity as editors, sound mixers and visual effects artists readied two new EuropaCorp productions for their »

Can Luc Besson score another French-import blockbuster with 'Lucy'? (Updated)

24 July 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Over the course of his dozen-plus films as a writer-director, Parisian auteur Luc Besson has become known for his stylish inversions of schlock genre fare and a certain, shall we call it, Vive la femme attitude toward women.

Time and again, his movies place emotionally fragile female characters in physically perilous situations: a conflicted hit-woman struggling with the perils of her job in 1990’s La Femme Nikita, 12-year old Natalie Portman on the run as an assassin-in-training in The Professional, and Milla Jovovich’s universe-saving alien Leeloo in The Fifth Element (1997) among them. Besson’s latest multiplex offering appears set to follow that template. »

23 July 2014 3:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Continuing his run of strong dramatic roles, Dan Stevens has come on to star in indie “The Ticket” with Oren Moverman producing.

Ido Fluk is writing and directing with Lawrence Inglee joining Moverman as a producer.

The pic follows a blind man who regains his vision only to be engulfed in selfishness, blinded by his obsession for the superficial.

The film will begin production this August in upstate New York.

Fluk directed the 2011 Israeli film “Never Too Late.”

Stevens has had a busy 2014 thus far beginning with his dark turn in “The Guest” which premiered at Sundance and led to strong reviews for the young actor. He can be seen next alongside Liam Neeson in the Cross Creek pic “A Walk Among Tombstones” and also has “The Cobbler” starring Adam Sandler and “Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb” bowing later this year.

He recently wrapped production on the ensemble drama “Criminal Activities. »

Pierce Brosnan Has A License To Kill In Trailer For The November Man

23 July 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since he finished playing James Bond twelve years ago, Pierce Brosnan has tried his hand in a variety of genres, from comedy (The Matador) to musical (Mamma Mia!). However, as the trope of older action heroes kicking major amounts of butt has become the bread and butter of stars like Liam Neeson, Brosnan has avoided roles that remind us of 007. Now, however, the 61-year-old actor hopes to rekindle the flame of Bond for the new thriller The November Man, which comes out on Wednesday, August 27.

In The November Man, directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job), Brosnan plays Peter Devereaux, an ex-cia agent who comes back into the fore to protect a valuable witness. He ends up going head-to-head with a former pupil, played by Luke Bracey (who will play Johnny Utah in the Point Break remake). Olga Kurylenko, who also has a connection to the 007 franchise, plays the witness, »

Watch: Pierce Brosnan is Tough in Full 'The November Man' Trailer

23 July 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You know we use to call you? The November Man. Because after you passed through, nothing lived." After being James Bond for four films, Pierce Brosnan is back in action mode in The November Man. We've already seen a teaser trailer for the film, and now the theatrical trailer shows off even more of the action thriller. While the plot seems generic, there's still something about this that seems appealing. Maybe it's just having Brosnan in this kind of role again at an older age, not unlike Liam Neeson. The supporting characters leave something to be desired, but that doesn't seem like it's ruining anything all that much. Watch below! Here's the full trailer for Roger Donaldson's The November Man, originally from Apple: The November Man is directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job, Thirteen Days) and written by Michael Finch (Predators) and Karl Gajdusek (Oblivion), based on a »

Denzel Washington To Receive San Sebastian Donostia Award

23 July 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Denzel Washington will receive a career achievement 2014 Donostia Lifetime Achievement Award at September’s 62nd San Sebastian Festival, the highest-profile fest in the Spanish-speaking world.

Washington and director Antoine Fuqua will also present “The Equalizer” at its European premiere, which will open San Sebastian’s 2014 edition on Sept. 19.

Sony Pictures’ big-screen redo of the ‘80s hit TV show, with Washington playing McCall, a hero who helps the hopelessly helpless, “The Equalizer” is already being talked up as a potential awards contender, though it will not be seen until it world premieres at the Toronto Festival where, on paper at least it weighs in as on of the festival’s highlights and commercial heavyweights.

Oscar talk is a reflection, however, of the kudos trawl for “Training Day,” the first teaming of Fuqua and Washington which earned the U.S. actor his second Academy Award after a supporting actor nod for »

Toronto International Film Festival unveils first wave of films for 2014

22 July 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.

The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

Whether or not this was the right move, Tiff has still managed to secure the films of Noah BaumbachDavid Cronenberg, Lone Scherfig, »

21 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

This is the second year in a row that Downey has earned the top spot on the exclusive list.

Downey, Hemsworth On Richest Actors List

21 July 2014 3:44 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The annual list of top earning actors published by Forbes magazine has come out for 2014 with Robert Downey Jr. heading up the list again. Downey took home approximately $75 million over the past financial year, two-thirds of which were backend profits from "The Avengers".

There was some surprising additions that show that young Hollywood is making bank on films despite claims these actors don't command the kinds of salaries that older stars (ala Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, even Will Smith) do. Downey's fellow Marvel star Chris Hemsworth made it into fifth place with $37 million, "Hangover" star Bradley Cooper nabbed a very impressive $46 million, and both the former (Christian Bale) and current (Ben Affleck) Batman tied for seventh and eighth with $35 million apiece. Here's the Top 10:

1 - Robert Downey Jr - $75 million

2 - Dwayne Johnson - $52 million

3 - Bradley Cooper - $46 million

4 - Leonardo DiCaprio - $39 million

5 - Chris Hemsworth - »
