8 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

As we reported way back in June, the Best Picture winner Forrest Gump was looking to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a re-release on IMAX screens starting on September 5th But at the time some specifics were missing from the announcement. Now Paramount Pictures has just cleared all that up by announcing the Robert Zemeckis film starring Tom Hanks will be exclusively re-release on IMAX screens for a one week only limited engagement. That means you'll have to hurry to see Forrest Gump on the IMAX screen for the first time, and will then be relegated to watching it whenever it's on TV, every weekend. »

Earth To Echo Review

25 July 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Earth To Echo tells the story of a bunch of young teenage friends who find a tiny alien robot and help him find his ship and get back to where he belongs. This is pure Spielberg, sprinkled with some Richard Donner and Robert Zemeckis. It’s a shame though that none of the aforementioned directors sat in the directors chair as Earth To Echo, while not original in any shape or form, had the potential to be something great. Looking like the offspring of  Bubo the Owl from Clash Of The Titans and Johnny Five (there’s a movie we’d pay money to see) this is one of the most adorable characters you’re going to see this year. With oodles of personality, mainly provided by huge and charming eyes as well as a few beeps and buzzes, it’s an absolute tragedy that this floating, tin can of »

George Clooney’s ‘Money Monster’ Set Up at TriStar

25 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

TriStar Pictures will finance and release “Money Monster,” starring George Clooney as a stock picker held hostage on TV.

Jodi Foster is directing the project from Jamie Linden’s script, in which the hostage taker is a man who lost his money after following the tout’s advice — and threatens to kill him if the cameras are turned off.

Plans are for production in the spring after Clooney completes shooting on “Hail Caesar” for the Coens.

Producers are The Allegiance Theater’s Daniel Dubiecki, Lara Alameddine and Smokehouse’s Clooney and Grant Heslov. “Money Monster” has a budget of $30 million.

Clooney will be seen next in Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” which Disney will release in May.

Foster, who’s been attached to “Money Monster” since 2012, has directed “The Beaver” starring Mel Gibson, “Home for the Holidays” and “Little Man Tate.”

Secret Cinema cancels Bttf again

25 July 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Event cinema organiser forced to cancel second consecutive night.

Secret Cinema, the immersive cinema event company, has cancelled the second consecutive night of its latest production, Back To The Future.

Its opening night was canned just a few hours before the show was set to begin in east London yesterday evening, disappointing around 3,500 ticketholders - each having paid £53.50. A preview night on Wednesday had also failed to go ahead.

As seemingly appropriate lightning storms raged over London, Secret Cinema has again been forced to pull the plug on its event, which is due to run over 24 nights until August 31.

In a fresh statement, just two hours before the production was set to begin, the organisation said: “Unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel tonight’s performance.

“Secret Cinema has been running safe arts events for 10 years and on this occasion we have come across a number of difficult issues. As you can »

A closer look at Jodorowsky's Dune

25 July 2014 2:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Frank Pavich's documentary takes a tour of a classic sci-fi film that never was. Jules-Pierre takes a look at Jodorowsky's Dune...

Feature

"There are more unmade movies than there are made movies," says Frank Pavich, director of Jodorowsky's Dune, the documentary chronicling director Alejandro Jodorowsky's efforts to adapt Frank Herbert's seminal science fiction novel for the big screen. His effort began almost a decade before the generally unsatisfying David Lynch version hit theatres in 1984.

Back in the mid 70s, widely credited as the creator of the Midnight Film genre with the release of El Topo (which caused a riot during its viewing at a film festival in Mexico), and fresh from the success of The Holy Mountain, Jodorowsky was given his choice of subject for his next movie. He elected to adapt Dune, even though he had never even read the book.

Event cinema organiser cancels opening night of its biggest production to date at the eleventh hour.

Secret Cinema has cancelled the opening night of its biggest production to date, an ambitious outdoor screening of Back to the Future, just hours before its launch.

Interview – Director Peter Hyams on Enemies Closer & the Quirky Villainy of Jcvd

24 July 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The name Peter Hyams may not be the mentioned in the same breath as contemporaries like Robert Zemeckis, Richard Donner and Barry Levinson, but this somewhat underappreciated filmmaker is far from a journeyman. During his five decade career he has effortlessly jumping between genres, churning out some entertaining and understated work, his most fruitful period being the 1980’s which saw the likes of Outland, The Presidio, Running Scared and 2010, a brave (and pretty enjoyable) attempt at crafting a sequel from Stanley Kubrick’s seminal work, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Enemies Closer, his first film since the 2009 Michael Douglas-headlining Beyond a Reasonable Doubt, sees him reunited with aging action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme (their two previous films together, Sudden Death and Timecop, are arguably the highlight of the former martial artist’s career). Enemies Closer is a fun, unpretentious B-movie which bears the unmistakable mark of a cinematic craftsman (Hyams, »

Denzel Washington To Receive San Sebastian Donostia Award

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 »

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Why Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar nomination for Planet of the Apes

17 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It's the 1969 Academy Awards, and Walter Matthau and a tuxedo-clad chimp present John Chambers with an honorary Oscar for his work on Planet of the Apes. Viewed in retrospect it's one of the more surreal presentations in the ceremony's history, but this was something of a landmark event for the industry. It was only the second time the Academy had dished out a prize to make-up artists (William J Tuttle won four years earlier for 7 Faces of Dr Lao), and it highlighted the growing importance of Hollywood's backstage creative artists.

Fast-forward 45 years and prosthetics are giving way to digital pixels - for characters that require a complexity of movement and expression, performance capture technology gives a director the scope to execute their vision by marrying an actor's performance with visual effects. In its basic form, the actor will strap on a bodysuit that's wired up to a computer. All their »

Ron Howard Tackles New Beatles Documentary

16 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Robert Zemeckis's Yellow Submarine may have hit the ocean floor Das Boot-style, but his old pal Ron Howard has taken on the mantle of making a Beatles movie and keeping fans of the mop-topped popsters - which, let's face it, is everyone - in good cheer. The so-far untitled documentary will be directed by Howard and focus on the early years of the Fab Four's career, culminating in their last public concert in 1966 (not counting the impromptu rooftop gig in 1969).Beatles fans should expect something special. The film, a co-production involving The Beatles' own label Apple Corps and Howard's producer partner Brian Grazer, has the full co-operation of Paul, Ringo, Yoko and George Harrison's widow Olivia and will feature never-before-seen footage of the band from fans all over the globe.'“I am excited and honored to be working with Apple and the White Horse team on this »

“I’ll Drink to That…”: Top 10 Alcoholic Movie Characters

15 July 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Alcoholism in the movies have been played for both dramatic and comical effect. In fact some of the binge drinking done on the big screen have garnered considerable praise and pathos resulting in many performers winning Oscars and Oscar nominations based on this very serious addiction.

The alcoholic in cinema is larger in life because it is a societal reflection of the demons and destruction that affect millions of people globally. Film allows for the liberty to use creative licenses to highlight the physical and psychological pain and false feelings of pleasure to convey the true face of alcoholism and its hold on fictional characterizations that are bound by the poisonous allure of the bottle. However heavy-handed or hearty it may seem in portraying the detached drinker or happy drunk one thing is for certain…the depth and dimensional range of the chronic cinema sipper has never disappointed in giving »

The collateral damage of Tom Hanks movies

14 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To get to a happy ending in a Tom Hanks movie, an innocent character has to pay the price. Here's the proof...

Feature

With the best part of $10bn banked for his movies across his career, Tom Hanks remains one of the biggest and most interesting movie stars on the planet. His most recent performance in Captain Phillips, for instance, was comfortably one of his best. And looking back on Hanks’ career, the path of increased boldness and range is easy to chart.

Furthermore, he’s achieved his successes without public meltdowns, without signs of turning into a diva, and without putting us through many poor films at all. The man is a hero.

Well, to everyone but certain characters in his movies. For, on rewatching Big, we became aware of an alarming trend: that there tends to be a character in a Tom Hanks movie whose role is to »
