Guardians of the Galaxy overtakes Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing domestic movie of 2014

30 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having crossed the $500 million mark earlier in the week, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has now overtaken Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing release of 2014 in North America. Guardians is projected to finish the Labor Day weekend with around $277 million in total, and is expected to fend off competition from The November Man and As Above, So Below to retain top spot over the four-day weekend.

It is also pretty much assured that the space opera will become the first movie to hit $300 million domestically, providing a shot in the arm to the North American box office, which has suffered its worst summer since 2006, with ticket sales down 15% from last year.

Guardians of the Galaxy sees James Gunn (Super) directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, »

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

29 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Perhaps it was comic book movie fatigue; perhaps it was sequel fatigue; perhaps it was a feeling of cash grabbing now that comic book films are the money making machines they are; or perhaps it was the fact that Robert Rodriguez’ last film was utter trash, but for whatever reason I was not looking forward to Sin City: A Dame to Kill for. Then I re-watched the first movie again (for the first time many years) in preparation for »

Jeremy Renner reveals Hawkeye’s fate in Avengers: Age of Ultron

28 August 2014 11:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Joss Whedon announced that one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may not make it out of Avengers: Age of Ultron alive, fans have speculated that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye would be the one to bite the dust. Out of the superhero team, Hawkeye’s been given the shortest shrift and the least amount of both screentime and character development, so killing him off wouldn’t really affect the larger McU that killing someone like Tony Stark or Captain America would.

Renner recently appeared on Larry King Live, and was asked point blank if he would die in Age of Ultron. His answer?

“No no. No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep [characters] around for a while.”

This jives well with Renner’s recent comments about Hawkeye possibility showing up in Captain America 3. Obviously, it could also be a case of misdirection, as the actor would »

8 Beloved Child Actors Who Completely Disappeared From Our Screens

28 August 2014 11:39 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

Many would have loved it to happen to them – to be cast in a film or TV show at a young age and achieve a level of stardom most people don’t get to in their whole lives. Being a child star is a life-changing experience for most kids, and if they come out of the other side without any negative experiences or pushy parents, they’ve got a good chance at a career in showbiz as an adult, and the world’s their oyster.

But for every Neil Patrick Harris or Josh Brolin who successfully graduated from child actor to fully-fledged movie star, there are a dozen of young performers who didn’t make the transition quite so smoothly, if at all. Some suffer from being typecast in younger roles and can’t find the parts that fit their new, older bodies and wither on the vine, »

27 August 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The James Gunn directed space opera has now earned $255.2 million domestically and $245.3 million internationally with the movie yet to be released in several key markets including Germany, Italy, Japan and China, the latter of which has proven to be a huge money maker in 2014.

It’s soundtrack Awesome Mix Vol. 1 has also made it two weeks at the top of the Billboard charts.

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

27 August 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Three more stories from the vaults of Sin City as some of its twisted citizens get in too deep.

The sequel to Sin City has been a long time coming and in the wake of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, part of me wonders if it’s been too long. The stories we get on this adventure are the titular A Dame to Kill For, Nancy’s Last Dance, Just Another Saturday Night and The Long Bad Night. Each of the stories in themselves are interesting and A Dame To Kill For is clearly the »

Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Box Office Democracy: “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”

25 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I was remarking to a friend a few weeks back that I was afraid that I had grown out of Sin City, that the franchise I had loved so much as a teenager/young adult was just beneath me now.  I don’t think that’s it though, not entirely, popular culture itself seems to have absorbed the things it likes from Sin City and moved on.  All that’s left is a movie that feels just as old and tired as the original film felt new and fresh nine years ago.

Before I go any further I have to shower praise on Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a man who seems to have been born to play noir leads.  While this is no secret to anyone who saw his dynamite performance in Brick it’s a treat to watch him do this work and a crying shame that there aren’t more »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

I feel like I should temper this review by letting you know that I have been very excited for this film since its announcement. The casting announcements only heightened my excitement to the point that when I saw that my local cinema was doing a double screening of the original I leapt at the opportunity. I’ll say it now. I loved this film.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For gives the audience a great mix of old »

Meet The Murderous Men Of ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

25 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a film that has been many years in the making. Critics and audiences alike went mad for Sin City when it was released way back in 2005. It had all the ingredients of a perfect film; it was gritty, violent, sexy and stylish. Finally back for round two, the film sees many familiar faces – as well as several new ones – once again inhabit the seedy world.

Yesterday we brought you a run down on all the lovely ladies that take up residence within the walls of the fictitious Basin City. Today we delve into the lives of the crooked criminals and valiant vigilantes that have both the X and Y chromosomes. The men of Sin City range from the good, to the bad, to the seriously demented, with the likes of Mickey Rourke, Jeremy Piven, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dennis Haysbert all on  board. »

​Box Office: Why Did 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Tank?

25 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Judging by the pre-release hype, you'd think "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" was a long- and eagerly-awaited sequel, a comic book movie for connoisseurs, whose all-star cast, eye-popping visuals, and violent action would make it the summer's last blockbuster. Given that the original opened at $29.1 million in 2005 dollars, the sequel, with a price boost from 3D, was expected to debut at least in the high teens. Such an opening might be good enough for first place, with a tight race expected among "Sin City," lingering hits "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and fellow newcomer "If I Stay."

And yet, when the smoke cleared, the film premiered with just an estimated $6.5 million, opening way down in eighth place. The other movies all did about as well as predicted -- "Guardians," "Turtles," and "If I Stay" all drew around $17 million, with "Guardians" claiming a slight edge »

Sin City's Robert Rodriguez "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting ability

24 August 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Rodriguez said that he was "blown away" by Lady Gaga's acting skills.

The Sin City director first worked with the musician on Machete Kills, before offering her a cameo in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For.

Rodriguez told E! News: "I told her she had to be in it [Sin City 2]... The camera loves her.

"She's a great performer. She's performed twice for me now and I was blown away by her discipline. She studied acting before she became a singer and you could really tell."

He continued: "She happened to be on tour in Houston, just a couple of cities away from us in Austin. She was ready.

"She brought her own wigs! I said, 'We're not going to have time to make a wig for you.' She showed up, we did the scene, she knocked it out of the park and then she was back on tour. »
