According to Deadline, the film will now make its North American debut on June 5, 2015, one week earlier than expected.

Picking up six months after the events of the TV series, the movie stars Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Dillon and Jerry Ferrara.

The film will feature several stars appearing as themselves, including Liam Neeson and Piers Morgan.

Production, Film Financing Company Fyzz Facility Opens L.A. Office

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

London — U.K.-based production and film financing company the Fyzz Facility is to open a Los Angeles office in the same month as it celebrates closing its 50th feature film investment.

The company, which is owned and managed by producers Wayne Marc Godfrey (“The Survivalist,” “Cake,” “Bus 657”) and Robert Jones (“The Usual Suspects,” “Babylon,” “Gosford Park”), has invested almost $40 million across 50 feature films since 2010.

The expansion to Los Angeles reflects its involvement in an increasing number of U.S. projects, and its desire to consolidate existing relationships and develop new partnerships on a global scale, it said.

Godfrey said: “Whilst we continue to support British films and help nurture British talent, an expansion to the U.S. has become a necessary next step for us, considering the importance Hollywood has on the global film business. Robert and I are excited to join the filmmaking community in L.A. »

The Joan Didion Documentary Kickstarter Raised $80K in 1 Day [Updated]

24 October 2014 6:09 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As of today, Joan Didion can cross “crowd-funding” off her bucket list. The laconic 79-year-old essayist — who vivisected the '60s, became half of a Hollywood power couple, and more recently wrote two best-sellers about losing her husband and daughter suddenly — will be the subject of a documentary titled (aptly, if unoriginally) We Tell Ourselves Stories in Order to Live. Her nephew, the actor Griffin Dunne, who will co-direct it with documentary veteran Susanne Rostock, put the project up on Kickstarter yesterday. It reached its goal of $80,000 at 10:30, roughly 24 hours later.As teased in a video and text on the site, the doc will alternate old photos of Didion with snippets of her reading selected passages (illustrated with gauzy stock footage), interspersed with newsreel-style coverage of the political upheavals she covered and talking heads like Patti Smith, Liam Neeson, Jann Wenner, Anna Wintour, Graydon Carter, and the camera-shy »

'John Wick' Review Roundup: Keanu Reeves Action Flick Wows Critics

23 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

John Wick stars action star Keanu Reeves as the eponymous hero of the story, a retired hitman seeking revenge on a band of gangsters.

Directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, John Wick begins with the death of John’s dog, one of the last things left that remind him of his late wife. When John finds out that his dog was killed by a group of thugs – ones connected to his former employer – he decides to come out of retirement to exact revenge. The flick also stars Ian McShane, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willen Dafoe, John Leguizamo and Bridget Moynahan.

'John Wicks' Reviewed

Across the board, critics have praised John Wick as a refreshing take on the assassin and revenge subgenres among action films. It’s stylish, short on filler dialogue and builds up slowly to unleash the chaos. For Reeves, John Wick is said to provide a return to form. »

The 6 Ugliest Paintings of Liam Neeson

23 October 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In real life and in photographs, Liam Neeson is a very handsome man. And yet, for some reason, when it comes time for Neeson's films to place his comely mug on their posters, they never choose a simple photo. Instead, they almost always go with a bizarre Photoshop painting of Neeson's face that makes him look like a cross between Frankenstein's monster and a potato. Check out some of the worst offenders below. (Some of these are international posters.) A Walk Among the TombstonesThis is the work of a police sketch artist who has only seen one Liam Neeson film (Darkman, 20 years ago). TakenFor this poster, the artist has decided to depict Neeson as Vincent Price. UnknownWelcome to Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, which is apparently lit like the inside of a high-school boiler room.

23 October 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Seth MacFarlane is currently busy directing his third feature effort, the comedy sequel Ted 2, and he’s taken to Twitter today to reveal that David Hasselhoff will appear in the film, with the Hoff subsequently offering up a few words about his mystery role.

“It’s a pretty funny bit that we’re doing in the movie, and [Seth] is a lovely guy,” Hasselhoff tells Digital Spy. “I can’t really talk about the gag, but it’s very irreverent and very funny. He tore me up on the Comedy Central roast, and I get a chance to get back at him! He’s a good guy, we don’t meet too many people in showbiz where they say, ‘Hey buddy, I’ll call you back, I’ve got something for you’, and then you actually hear from them again. This guy’s a stand-up guy.”

Dana Carvey Impersonates Scarface and Liam Neeson, Kills

22 October 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Dana Carvey can do no wrong in my eyes -- because my eyes have not seen "The Master of Disguise." The legendary "SNL" star visited Conan O'Brien to throw down a few impressions. His impressions of Scarface and Liam Neeson at Thanksgiving is pretty insane and awesome. Conan basically sustains a cackle the entire time.    His Neil Young impression, an old favorite, is also worth noting.   »

'John Wick' (2014) Movie Review

22 October 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Five years ago John Wick (Keanu Reeves) retired from his life as a hitman. He settled down with his wife (Bridget Moynahan) and was leading a normal life. Unfortunately, "normal" was short-lived as she succumbed to cancer leaving John on his own to grieve, or so he thought. Late one night a knock comes to his door, a delivery, a gift from the beyond. It's a small puppy with a note from his wife, a gift allowing him the opportunity not to grieve alone, or so he thought. A few nights later and John has another visitor. No knocking this time, just three guys in ski masks come to steal his car and, subsequently kill his dog. The intruders leave John bloody and beaten, laying down next to his deceased puppy, his car stolen from his garage. The bad guys got away, or so they thought... And with that the »

Flickering Myth TV exclusive preview of Road

20 October 2014 2:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Released on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK last week, we’ve got an exclusive preview of Road, a documentary narrated by Liam Neeson, which tells the a heartbreaking and adrenaline-fuelled tale of a family who have dominated road racing for over thirty years. Check it out below…

Motorcycle road racing is a sport in which men compete at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour on closed country roads – roads that on any other day service cars, buses, tractors – roads that are lined with trees, telegraph posts and stone walls, unforgiving obstacles when struck by the human body.

It is a sport that has claimed many lives over the years – and continues to do so to this day. Ireland and the Isle of Man are two of the few places in the world where the sport still survives.

Parents & Frequent Moviegoers Are Desensitized To Violence, Sex In Film; Likely So Is MPAA Ratings Board: Study

20 October 2014 12:01 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After surveying 1,000 parents exposed to multiple clips of on-screen sex and violence in movies, a study found that parents become increasingly desensitized to acts of sex and violence with repeated viewing which appears to lead to an increasing acceptance to both. The result is that these parents are less likely to shield their kids from movies that contain sex and violence. In addition, the authors note that people who rate movies for the MPAA (themselves parents) could also be subject to the same desensitization “and thus more likely to be lenient when it comes to evaluating the appropriateness of such content for children.” Those behind the study said this effect could help to explain the “ratings creep” that has allowed more violence into films aimed at our youth.

The MPAA has long acknowledged that its standards have shifted over time but has traditionally attributed this to the changing standards of parents. »

Kidman and Firth a mismatch

19 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman were terrific as a long-married couple who overcame adversity in The Railway Man but Australian audiences aren.t buying their latest on-screen pairing.

Before I Go to Sleep casts Kidman as a 40-year-old woman who wakes up every day with a blank memory. Firth is her husband who tells her been married for 14 years and Mark Strong is her neuro-psychologist who encourages her to keep a daily video diary so she can help rebuild her life.

The thriller directed by Rowan Joffe, adapted from S. J. Watson.s best-selling novel, may not have sent audiences to sleep but relatively few bothered to turn up as the film fetched $418,000 on a very wide 194 screens.

Nationwide takings dropped by 16% to $9.7 million as none of the other newcomers much enthused cinemagoers, according to Rentrak.s weekend estimates. Distributors say the market is soft and especially shallow below the top three titles. »

Ciff Day 4: ‘The Young Kieslowski’ and ‘In Order of Disappearance’

18 October 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You can’t win ‘em all. Sometimes the challenge with a film festival, as opposed to say a music festival, is that not everything you see will be good. Sometimes you may decide it just wasn’t for you, and sometimes you wonder why they even decided to choose that film in the first place.

The Young Kieslowski was this year’s dud. It broke the rule I held that there are no romantic leads named “Brian”, and if there are fictional Brians they end up writing term papers while everyone else gets paired off with Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheady. And yet it doesn’t help that Brian Kieslowski is remarkably repellent.

Hardly an edgy sex comedy on par with any college-aged romp you can imagine from the last 10 years, and trying desperately to be a mix of Ferris Bueller, Juno and maybe a dash of 500 Days of Summer, »

Brad Pitt's 5 Funniest Accents

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part Four

The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today

40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

Wild & Crazy: The Most Bizarre Star Wars Prequel Rumors

17 October 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Star Wars: Episode VII currently in production (and only a few weeks from wrapping), rumors have been flying fast and furious over the last few months.  This has caused a flurry of finger-pointing, naysaying, and even hostility between fans over some of the claims...but this is nothing new.  The Prequel trilogy were surrounded by rumors as well, so today, I thought it’d be fun to take a trip down memory lane to remember some of the craziest reports that had us all buzzing.

Some of these are just bizarre, and many of the original sites reporting on these things are no longer in action, but some of you life-long fans, like me, will likely remembering hearing about these.  I’ve purposefully stayed away from Super Shadow reports (though some of these may have been influenced by him), because he was a known fraud and I wanted to »
