Disney’s The Jungle Book Headed to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital This August

7 July 2016 4:13 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Having already soundly conquered the box office, Disney's The Jungle Book from director Jon Favreau will next appear August 23rd on Digital HD followed by a physical disc release on Blu-ray and DVD a week later, August 30th.

What you won't find in stores on either of those dates is The Jungle Book on Blu-ray 3D or 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. The former is a bit of a puzzler since the film was shot with 3D in mind and may signal Disney giving up on 3D altogether. A 4K release wasn't expected as Disney has yet to announce plans to support the new home video format.

The Jungle Book features a robust voice cast including Bill Murray as the voice of Baloo, Sir Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Lupita Nyong’o as Raksha, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, Giancarlo Esposito as Akela, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, and Christopher Walken as King Louie. »

The Jungle Book Hits Digital HD August 23rd And Blu-Ray August 30th

7 July 2016 2:23 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

While The Jungle Book didn’t quite amaze in the way that some hoped, but it was definitely one of the more interesting efforts of the year, and the home release has some interesting bonus features that look to make this family-friendly movie a must-own.

The commentary track on this one is probably worth the price of admission all on its own, especially given the complexities of putting this together, and Favreau’s proclaimed love for the story.

You’re also getting a featurette that runs through the adaptation process, which covers the years spent working on bringing the film to life. And, another featurette that takes us through Neel Sethi’s journey to land the role, and his experience being involved in making the film, and what that does to your life.

I imagine there may be more by the time it hits, but it looks like a solid release already. »

‘The Deer Hunter’ director Michael Cimino dies aged 77

3 July 2016 3:29 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Michael Cimino, the director who brought us such classics as The Deer Hunter and Heaven’s Gate has died at the age of 77.

Cimino directed eight films during his career. His debut was the Clint Eastwood-led Thunderbolt and Lightfoot in 1974, followed by The Deer Hunter just four years later in 1978. Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep and Christopher Walken starred in the Vietnam movie which garnered five Oscars including Best Film the following year. The film is most famous for its often replicated Russian roulette sequence.

Cimino went on to direct Year Of The Dragon, The Sicilian (also with Walken), Desperate Hours, The Sunchaser and a segment in the 2011 ensemble piece To Each His Own Cinema. Cimino also wrote the Dirty Harry movie Magnum Force and Douglas Trumball’s cult classic Silent Running.

No cause of death has been released, though Cimino’s body was said to have been found »

Michael Cimino, best remembered for 'Heaven's Gate,' is gone

2 July 2016 9:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are days where the Internet feels like the most ghoulish game of telephone ever, particularly when the word starts to spread that someone notable has died. Edgar Wright was the first one I saw mention the death of Michael Cimino this afternoon, quoting a Tweet by Cannes luminary Thierry Fremaux, who announced, “Michael Cimino died peacefully, surrounded by his family and these two women who loved him. We loved him also.” Without question, Cimino’s career was defined by one remarkable high and one remarkable low, and to some degree, his career is the perfect illustration of what happened as film culture moved from the ‘70s to the ‘80s, and part of what makes him such a fascinating figure is how questionable every “fact” about him was. Cimino was a mystery in many ways, and when he made his debut as a director with Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, he looked like »

R.I.P. Director Michael Cimino

2 July 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Oscar-winning filmmaker Michael Cimino has died at the age of 77.

Cimino was one of the filmmakers that made up the 'New Hollywood' wave in the 1970s which pushed directors as the driving creative force behind filmmaking. He broke onto the scene with the 1974 heist film "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" starring Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges.

It was his second film though, 1978's post-Vietnam war drama "The Deer Hunter," which became a bonafide cinematic classic and Best Picture Winner. A scathing look at the fallout and impact of the war on the lives of people from small town Pennsylvania, it remains a major milestone in the careers of its stars like Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken and John Savage.

Following up such a film was always going to be a tall order, and Cimino's third film became famous for other reasons. The 1980 western "Heaven's Gate" scored a reputation for being »

Big Stars Love TV So Much, They’re Even Hosting Game Shows Now

2 July 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Remember when big-name stars didn’t want to do TV? Now they’re even clamoring for jobs as game show hosts.

Alec Baldwin (ABC’s “Match Game”), Taye Diggs (Fox’s “Hypnotize Me”), Jane Lynch (NBC’s “Celebrity Game Night”) and Anthony Anderson (ABC’s “To Tell the Truth”) are just some of the actors who now front major primetime game shows, in addition to their regular scripted work.

“You look at game shows from the 1970s and 1980s, they were somewhat cheesy,” Anderson said. “It’s different now. It’s a lot classier. It’s cool.”

Wayne Brady, who has hosted a “Let’s Make a Deal” revival for CBS since 2009, joked that “being a game show host was very much akin to being a local affiliate weatherman – and no offense to local affiliate weathermen, but there’s a stereotype.”

‘Talking Tom’ App Partnering on Kevin Spacey Comedy ‘Nine Lives’

1 July 2016 4:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

EuropaCorp and Outfit7 are launching a global partnership between the upcoming Kevin Spacey-Jennfier Garner comedy  “Nine Lives” and the Talking Tom Cat app.

It’s the first time that Talking Tom has partnered with a feature film for a cross-brand integration since it was introduced in 2010 with a cat that responded to gestures made on smartphone and tablet screens, and could animate voice recordings. The app now offers other animals and has spun off an animated web series, “Taking Friends,” that streams on Disney’s YouTube channel and other networks.

“I am thrilled with our Talking Tom partnership because of its seamless integration into the film,” said Tommy Gargotta, president of marketing at EuropaCorp. “It lines up great not only with our story but with our core audience, and gives us the opportunity to connect with billions of potential fans in an authentic and creative way.”

The 20 Best Biopics of the Last 20 Years

23 June 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Picture the ending of the standard-issue based-on-a-true-story film. Once the picture fades on a family’s final teary goodbye or the camera pans up from our hero(ine) in a moment of triumph, there’s a postscript. And then, the inevitable grainy home video or candid photo of the “real” main character, proof that someone in the casting office (or the hair/make-up department) did their job and brought you the closest facsimile of the real thing.

This may be the most common approach, but it doesn’t produce the best biopics. Good biographies recreate a moment; great ones evoke a sprit that reverberates through the current time.
