Hff unveils re-launch slate

27 August 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The re-launched Hollywood Film Festival (Hff), now under the auspices of Slamdance co-founder Jon Fitzgerald’s philanthropic CineCause, will run from October 16-19.

CineCause acquired Hff earlier this year after Fitzgerald served as executive director in 2013.

According to a press release the goal of the event going forward will be to showcase socially-conscious films and grow into a leading festival “without the help of typical glitz and glamour”, celebrating creative artists, activists and industry leaders who support causes around the world.  

“The word Hollywood is synonymous with celebrity and glamour,” said Fitzgerald.  “But Hollywood is filled with people who care about global problems and who recognise the power of celebrity, cinema and storytelling and how this power can help create change.”

“Many of Hollywood’s celebrities back important causes and several will participate in our festival this year. Sharon Stone produced My Name Is Water. Emma Thompson executive produced and narrates Sold [pictured], which stars Gillian Anderson and David Arquette »

Box Office: ‘November Man,’ ‘As Above, So Below’ Jockey for Labor Day Dominance

27 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Labor Day represents the last gasp of summer, the final opportunity to wear white, and the end of Hollywood’s busiest time of year.

It tends, however, to close things out with something of a whimper, as opposed to a bang, and this year will be no exception. For studios, it’s the box office equivalent of Arbor Day. Blink and you miss it.

Two new wide releases enter the market this holiday weekend, the Pierce Brosnan action thriller “The November Man” and the found footage horror film “As Above, So Below,” both of which are shaping up to be modest performers.

“Labor Day is traditionally one of the slowest holiday weekends of the year, if not the slowest,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak. “Expectations are not that high and the focus has shifted away a little bit from the movies.”

The November Man” will get a jump on the festivities, »

Film Review: 'The November Man'

26 August 2014 9:52 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Twelve years. That's how long it's been since Pierce Brosnan last portrayed James Bond on the silver screen. That history, where he played the iconic British agent for four films, is what the producers of The November Man are hoping will draw you to their movie. Even the tag line, "A spy is never out of the game" is meant to convey the idea that "he's back!" Much of the promotional work for the film centers around "Look! It's Pierce Brosnan, back as a spy!" even though it has little to do with the movie. The idea that his character, Peter Devereaux, was ever "out" of the spy world and returns to it is barely emphasized in the actual film. It's clear this is all about Brosnan. And to really drive that point home, they even cast a former Bond Girl to run around with him through exotic locales.

The November Man – The Review

26 August 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

With apologies to Irving Berlin and Annie Oakley, for Hollywood there’s no business like spy business, especially in the last decade or so. Now, secret agents and undercover operatives have been the protagonists of thrillers since the silent movie era. But things really popped in those swingin’ sixties when 007 twirled around and fired at the camera lens. Bond is the franchise that would never die and aside from Matt Helm and Derek Flint in that early decade, never had any serious competition until Matt Damon floated up as Jason Bourne a dozen years ago. He ushered in an era of more realistic, grittier spies who also helped inspire new film versions of the works of John le Carre’ such as the recent A Most Wanted Man. Much in this same vein comes The November Man, a flick combining the mystery and deception of that author along with that brutal Bourne action. »

New A Walk Among The Tombstones TV Spots Has Neesons Threatening Your Worthless Lives

26 August 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Universal has released a couple of new TV spots for Scott Frank's upcoming crime thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones.  The film stars Liam Neeson as an alcoholic ex-cop who investigates the kidnapping of a heroin drug lord’s wife, teaming up with a heroin trafficker (Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens) and his brother to hunt down the men responsible for the crime.  Judging by the TV spots, it looks like Taken meets Saw, a concept that's amusing enough for me.  Bring on the Neesons. Hit the jump to check out A Walk Among the Tombstones TV spots.  The film also stars David Harbour and Boyd Holbrook.  A Walk Among the Tombstones opens in theaters on September 19th. Via Universal Pictures.

New T.V. Spot For A Walk Among The Tombstones

26 August 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A new t.v. spot for A Walk Among The Tombstones has come online, proving Liam Neeson has his current action star persona down to a tee. His current crop of movies, Taken 2 aside, have proved enjoyable, but I have a feeling this will give his acting muscles a work out, as well as his trigger finger. Released: 18th September Synopsis: Matt Scudder is an ex-nypd cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the Pi learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime…nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again. »

A world with no mercy needs a man with no fear in two new TV spots and three clips from Universal Pictures' A Walk Among the Tombstones.

Watch: Take 'A Walk Among The Tombstones' With Liam Neeson With 4 Clips Plus New Pics From The Film

25 August 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There's a lot of prestige fare coming in the weeks and months ahead, but sometimes you just need the comforting, gravelly voice of Liam Neeson to remind you that it's okay to see a movie that aspires to be nothing more and nothing less than pure genre material. Movie titles don't get more pulpy than "A Walk Among The Tombstones," and four clips and a batch of new images have arrived to show you what's been aggravating Neeson lately. Based on the book by Lawrence Block, the movie follows former NYPD cop and unlicensed private investigator Matt Scudder (Neeson), who toes some dark ethical lines when he helps a pair of drug dealers seek out the kingpin who murdered their wives. The scenes below give you a sampling of the movie, with Dan Stevens looking pretty serious, and That Guy From "True Detective" going all sinister again. But we do »

Liam Neeson Does His Thing In Shots From A Walk Among The Tombstones

25 August 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If action cinema has taught us anything over the past few years, it’s this – don’t, under any circumstances, screw with Liam Neeson. Alas, the generic baddies at the heart of this fall’s dark crime thriller A Walk Among the Tombstones do exactly that and, in predictable fashion, pay for it dearly.

With Taken, its sequel, Unknown and Non-Stop under his belt, Neeson has a pretty winning formula for action fare – growl some threats, bark some commands and kick some serious ass. Whether this upcoming pic, less high-octane than high-atmosphere, will deviate from those three steps remains to be seen, but even it doesn’t, there are worse tickets to plunk down cash for than one that allows you to watch Neeson go through those same badass motions one more time.

At the least the new crop of images from A Walk Among the Tombstones reminds us that »

New A Walk Among The Tombstones Images: Liam Neeson and Dan Stevens Are on the Hunt

22 August 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Universal Pictures has released some new A Walk Among the Tombstones images from director Scott Frank’s (The Lookout) upcoming dark crime thriller.  The film stars Liam Neeson as an alcoholic ex-cop who investigates the kidnapping of a heroin drug lord’s wife, teaming up with a heroin trafficker (Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens) and his brother to hunt down the men responsible for the crime.  While on the surface this could be seen as another cash-in on Neeson’s “badass hunting down bad people” movie genre, I’m highly encouraged by the involvement of Frank.  He penned the scripts for Out of Sight and Minority Report and I was a big fan of his previous directorial effort The Lookout, so it’s with some degree of anticipation that I’m looking forward to this one.   Moreover, Stevens proves in The Guest that he’s more than capable of handling a darker role, »

But when a violent prison riot breaks out, the crew becomes stranded inside with the guards.” No cast has yet been set for the comedy, but Relativity Studios is attached to produce, finance and distribute.
