12 Stupid Mistakes That Somehow Made It Into 2014 Movies

25 November 2014 11:55 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

As the end of the year draws in, and only the festive tent-poles and Boxing Day hangover movies remain, it’s getting to the point where movie fans do their usual reflection on what they’ve seen over the past twelve moments. They celebrate the best, bemoan the most underwhelming and shed a tear for the lost minutes and hours spent hoping that Michael Bay might have made another Pain & Gain and not another Transformers atrocity.

The next month or so will be spent picking out as many winners and losers of the year as Christmas presents for loved ones to be disappointed by, and inevitably the question of mistakes and goofs will come up.

No matter how much money is invested in the industry it seems that editors and directors still cannot close the nets on faux-pas and fudge ups, no matter how stupid. Still, audiences are »

Who is the biggest movie star of the 21st century?

24 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What makes a Movie Star? A dyed-in-the-wool, honest-to-God Movie Star, especially in the 21st Century? Movie stars aren't just talents that set fire at the box office, or pick up statues at the Oscars. Movie stars sometimes aren't the finest actors, or the quantifiable difference between a hit and a flop. Movie stars have a little something extra, an added note in their chord, a spark that is recognizably different that sets them apart from "romantic interest" or "lead female" or "that guy from those comedies I watch on a basic cable binge." We had debates raging in the HitFix newsroom. Could actors like Meryl Streep and Tom Cruise be the Aughts' biggest stars, despite beginning their reigns in earlier decades? What about someone like Jennifer Lawrence, who really only stepped out as a star in 2010? How about franchise juggernauts like Tyler Perry, Daniel Radcliffe and Kristen Stewart? Could filmmakers »

Michael Stahl-David‘s career is going to pot! (That’s funny ’cause the show’s about weed.)

The Person of Interest and My Generation actor has landed a starring role in TNT’s Jerry Bruckheimer-produced untitled drama pilot about the Florida drug trade in the 1970s.

Stahl-David, who recently guest-starred on New Girl as a love interest for Zooey Deschanel’s Jess, will play Bobby Nickel, a charismatic, brilliant and driven man who came from nothing and quickly learned to make his own rules.

13 Reasons Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Was The Stupidest 2014 Movie

24 November 2014 2:19 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Though the year is not yet over, looking back over the last 12 months of movies it’s fairly safe to say that Michael Bay was once more responsible for the single dumbest movie of the year. In truth, he was responsible for two of the most numb-skulled of movies, but his Turtles travesty (which bears far more hallmarks of his film-making than any other director, no matter who was supposed to be in charge) made Transformers 4 look like Battleship Potemkin.

The film feels aged already, as if every joke – including a “Pimp My Ride” reference – was written ten years ago and nobody thought to check if it was all still current. And of course, this being a Bay film, everything was shot with ridiculous over-hyped importance (including a ludicrous emotional swell and visual flourish when April O’Neil presses an intercom) and at an angle of 130 degrees, »

Mockingjay Friday Box Office: $55 Million Trails The Hunger Games Predecessors

22 November 2014 9:24 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

A gust of wind swept underneath the wings of Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 at the box office on Friday, easily enough to notch the biggest opening day at the domestic box office in 2014. In comparison to the previous Hunger Games films and third entries in other mega-franchises, Mockingjay's first installment failed to reach cruising altitude and will go down as the lowest opening film in the franchise to-date.

Following a $17 million Thursday night debut, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 raked in an estimate $55 million on Friday to take over the top opening of the year from Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction with $41.9 million. That mark is overshadowed by the original The Hunger Games opening to $67.3 million, while its sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, exploded to a $71 million opening day.

Numerous factors contributed to the tepid Mockingjay opening including snowy conditions across a large swath of the country, »

Tech Support: Will 'Interstellar's' woes cost it Oscar attention in the sound mixing race?

20 November 2014 1:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Normally, by mid-November, we have a pretty good idea of many of the likely nominees in most of the crafts categories. But in this year's race for Best Sound Mixing, I see things as extremely open — there's not a single film that strikes me as assured of a spot and more than a dozen appear to have very good chances. That makes for an exciting race. This category awards the overall mix of dialogue, music, effects and "everything else" into a film's soundtrack. This is different than sound editing, which recognizes the creation and editing of artificial sound effects. Being a leading Best Picture contender can certainly help a film's chances in mixing (seen in "The Social Network," "The King's Speech" and "Moneyball" in recent years), as can being a war film, a musical or a respected (or even not-so-respected) blockbuster. There are also certain mixers who score very regularly indeed. »

Meet Michael Bay’s Mom in the Gag Reel of Transformers: Age of Extiction

As soon as I saw this online, I knew I just had to post it here. Sure, it’s not much of a gag reel, but it’s still worth watching just for Michael Bay’s mom, who by the way, hasn’t seen any of her son’s Transformers movies. As you’d expect, Bay has had a thing for […]

10 Amazing Unmade David Fincher Films

20 November 2014 10:05 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

There’s a good chance that, even if you consider yourself a pretty big fan of director David Fincher, there’s a fair amount of his work you’ve never lied eyes on. Before he reached the cinematic heights of this year’s Gone Girl and cultural landmarks like Se7en, Fight Club and The Social Network, Fincher worked primarily as a music video director. He worked with some pretty big names, too, with his video production company Propaganda Films seeing him rub shoulders with fellow future tians of cinema like Spike Jonze, Zack Snyder and Michael Bay, making clips for the likes of Madonna, Aerosmith and Michael Jackson.

It was that music video work that got him his first feature gig, the underrated Alien 3 (Fincher’s quoted as saying “No one hated it more than me; to this day, no one hates it more than me.”). That experience was »

China’s ‘Gone With The Bullets’ Fires Up $20M In Advance Ticket Sales: Report

20 November 2014 4:40 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Jiang Wen’s upcoming Gone With The Bullets is on its way to blockbuster status in China — a month before its release. At a press conference this week in Beijing, China.org reports it was announced that the film has already pre-sold 120M yuan ($19.6M) worth of tickets. IMAX pre-sales have also broken the midnight premiere record of 4M yuan ($653K) set by Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction. It’s been speculated that this film, a sequel to 2010’s Let The Bullets Fly, which made 720M yuan ($117.5M) in China and $140M worldwide, could be the one to beat Age Of Extinction’s all-time China box office record set earlier this year with a gross of $301M. But producer Ma Ke noted at the conference, “What has made us happier is we spent four years making a serious, high-quality movie. The responsibility for a domestic film shall always lie on quality at first, »

Project Almanac Trailer: It's Still Found Footage From Michael Bay

19 November 2014 12:00 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Originally set for release in February 2014 under the title Welcome to Yesterday, the found-footage thriller from producer Michael Bay was delayed by Paramount Pictures on short notice, reportedly to refine their marketing strategy. It's now titled Project Alamanac and is due in theaters on January 30, 2015. What changed? Below I've embedded the new trailer for Project Almanac as well as the first one for Welcome to Yesterday. It looks to me that the new marketing strategy is to disguise -- or at least not emphasize -- the found-footage angle. The story is the same: high school students put together a time machine, change recent history to their benefit, and then must fix the damage they've unwittingly caused. Over the years my enjoyment of found-footage movies has steadily...

New Trailer Hits For Found Footage Time Travel Thriller Project Almanac

18 November 2014 12:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount Pictures has unveiled a brand new trailer for director Dean Israelite’s thriller, Project Almanac. Tying together two distinct genres; found footage and time travel, it might come as a surprise to learn that the long-gestating movie was produced by none other than Michael Bay.

Bay’s Platinum Dunes label picked up the film back in 2012, switched its name to Welcome To Yesterday and began shooting in 2013. Aiming for a Winter 2014 release, at the last minute the studio pulled the pic from the cinematic calendar. After reinstating the original title, the finished product debuted at Comic-Con last year, receiving a most encouraging response from critics.

With its release date edging ever closer, a new rebranded trailer has arrived to further stoke our curiosity. It comes across like a sorta-sequel to Chronicle, borrowing the same style and similar thematic emblem of meddlesome teens. Focusing on a group of high schoolers »

Watch: Trailer For Michael Bay-Produced Found Footage Time Travel Movie 'Project Almanac'

18 November 2014 11:02 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Michael Bay, who spent the year adding to the Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchises to grand box office success, is now using his lingerie intensive, explosion filled producing powers to deliver a found footage time travel movie. Why? Because he can, so behold "Project Almanac." And while this movie might seem like a total surprise, it  screened this past summer to select attendees at the San Diego Comic-Con. Now it's coming to theaters, and the first trailer has arrived. The film is directed by Dean Israelite and stars Jonny Weston, Sofia Black D’Elia, and Amy Landecker, none of whom are among the most well known names on the planet, but that doesn't always matter when a high concept is front and center of a movie. The story follows a trio of teens who uncover the blueprint for a time machine, tinker with it, and then use that »
