'The Shining' Prequel 'The Overlook Hotel' Brings on Director Mark Romanek

18 July 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Romanek has entered negotiations to direct The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel for Warner Bros. We reported in May that Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n was the studio's top choice to direct The Overlook Hotel, but it seems a deal was never reached.

The Overlook Hotel is based on the original prologue that Stephen King wrote for The Shining novel, which was cut before the book was published in 1977. The prologue tells the origin story of The Overlook Hotel and its first owner, Bob T. Watson, a "robber baron" at the start of the 20th Century who set out to build the greatest resort in America, nestled within the Colorado Rockies, where he and his family also lived.

We reported in April that Glen Mazzara, a former showrunner on AMC's The Walking Dead, signed on to write the screenplay. The writer recently turned in his first draft to producers Brad Fischer, »

Film Review: ‘Magic in the Moonlight’

17 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Romance blooms under the sun and the stars in Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight,” a high-spirited bauble that goes down easy thanks to fleet comic pacing, a surfeit of ravishing Cote d’Azur vistas and the genuinely reactive chemistry of stars Colin Firth and Emma Stone. A welcome balm for the blockbuster-addled soul, Allen’s 44th feature finds the director back in the 1920s Gallic mood of 2011’s “Midnight in Paris,” with the star-crossed lovers this time held apart not by time but rather by philosophical inclinations. While the result may not quite equal “Midnight’”s box office bonanza, expect “Magic” to handily corner the upscale adult demo for the remainder of summer, continuing the Woodman’s late-career hot streak.

A childhood magic buff and amateur magician, Allen has incorporated hypnotists, stage illusionists and touches of the supernatural into many films including “Alice,” “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion” and “Scoop, »

'The Shining' Prequel Eyes 'Gravity' Director Alfonso Cuaron

22 May 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gravity director Alfonso Cuar&#243n continues to be in high demand at Warner Bros. Just days after he entered talks to direct the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the filmmaker has emerged as the studio's top choice to make The Shining prequel The Overlook Hotel.

Schmoes Know reports that the "ball is in Alfonso's court" for the project, but it isn't yet known if he plans on accepting their offer.

Back in April 2013, we reported that Glen Mazzara, the former showrunner of AMC's The Walking Dead, will be writing the script, which is set years before Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) moved into the hotel in The Shining. Schmoes Know reports that a script has just been turned in, although it isn't known how well-received it was by the studio. Laeta Kalogridis, James Vanderbilt and Brad Fisher are set to produce.

No production schedule has been set for The Overlook Hotel, »

Visual Index ~ 3 Women's Best Shots

6 May 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Given that 3 Women is a different picture every time I lay eyes on it, I'm dying to see what other people see in it, too. Thus, this brilliantly strange atypical Robert Altman is an ideal film for Hit Me With Your Best Shot, wherein everyone is welcome to choose what they think of as the "best shot" from the pre-selected film.  Find out what others saw in this picture by clicking on the photos to read the corresponding articles at these fine blogs.

11 Best Shots From 3 Women (1977)

"We don't like the twins" - On Robert Altman's 3 Women (1977)

6 May 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I've seen 3 Women exactly 3 times. Look at me all numeriffic. Each time it shapes-shift fluidly like its still half submerged in the embryonic waters of pools, aquariums, nursing home baths, and dream floods that keep engulfing the women, particularly Sissy Spacek as "Pinky" (or "Mildred" depending on how you read the picture). She's the most permeable of them all.

Permeable, maybe, but never painlessly transforming; if the movie camera had never discovered Sissy Spacek's face in various stages of psychotic breaks (see also Carrie) it would have missed its calling entirely. 

The first time I saw the film it was like looking a crystal clear umbillical cord between Persona (1966) and Mulholland Dr (2001). The second time it was a singular experience, untethered to other films from my favorite genre (Women Who Lie To Themselves™) and played as a remarkable feat of interiority and actressing (Shelley Duvall won "Best Actress" at »

Hit Me With Your Best Shot: Mean Girls (2004)

29 April 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

For this week's Hit Me With Your Best Shot, we're reairing one of the earliest of episodes. We invited new readers to select a shot if they weren't around in 2010 when "Best Shot" first began so this survey of Mean Girls best shots, as chosen by each participant (click on the link for the corresponding article) is an fusion of old and new pieces 'round the web. Here's my choice:

And what I originally wrote:

The camera tracks Regina through the hallway after she's hatched her brilliant revenge plan. She's regained control of the screaming rage we saw in the prior scene and she's just gliding through the hallways, with a neat hint of actressy athleticism. Gone is the sex kitten and in her place the marathon runner. 

The shot functions like a reverse Hansel & Gretel; the witch leaving a bread crumb trail. In the bookend shot that follows the camera is still moving, »

Horror History: Chilling Continuity Polaroids from The Shining

25 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

One of the most revered films around the Dread Central offices is Stanley Kubrick's masterful take on Stephen King's The Shining. Cinephilia and Beyond dug up some continuity Polaroid photos used to keep track of the on-set mayhem, and we have a look at them for you here!

Based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel, Kubrick’s tale of a family man and would-be writer (Jack Nicholson) going mad as winter caretaker of the cursed Overlook Hotel is a seminal work of the genre.

Kubrick’s film has been described as a masterpiece of modern horror and is widely considered to be one of the most terrifying movies ever made. However, at the time of release both Kubrick and lead actress Shelley Duvall were nominated for Razzie Awards for the film.

The Top 12 Most Unconvincing Horror Couples

12 February 2014 10:41 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

A few years ago I wrote a piece on my blog Day of the Woman about unrealistic horror couples, this isn’t to be confused with “worst horror couples” or like what Ryan Turek over at Shock Till You Drop posted, “Doomed Horror Romances.”  Instead, I wanted to focus on couples in horror movies that really have no business being together.  Some of these couples I’m judging from the shallow perspective of appearances, but some of these couples just don’t seem compatible.  Now that I’m a little older and a little more in tune to what actually makes for a good relationship, I’ve re-vamped and revitalized this list just in time for everyone’s favorite holiday developed by the greeting card industry. Note: If you and your significant other resemble any of the couples we make fun of, we’re not making fun of you…we »

‘Thieves Like Us’ shows Robert Altman’s relationship with the American South

31 January 2014 4:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Thieves Like Us

Written by Edward Anderson, Calder Willingham, Joan Tewkesbury and Robert Altman

Directed by Robert Altman

USA, 1974

Robert Altman’s foray into film in the 70s left him with a body of work densely packed with revered quality, which enshrined him as one of the great American directors. M*A*S*H, Nashville, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The Long Goodbye, and 3 Women would have been enough to designate him a worthy auteur, one who spoke a certain mystical anti-Hollywood language with beams of nostalgia resonating from current cinephiles who wonder, “How did they get away with that?”. It wasn’t by fitting in with contemporaries such as Scorsese and Hellman or emulating the previous nouvelle vague that made Altman a mainstay in cinematic history — much of that is due to his unabashed critique of genre understanding, his unique editing, and, perhaps unexpectedly, his understanding of his subjects in a »

Throwback Thursday: The Shining

30 January 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

It's Thursday once again, and you know what that means; time to check out some vintage behind the scenes shots from another beloved horror flick.  Because it's not just Thursday... it's #ThrowbackThursday, fiends!

There is perhaps no film set that's more fascinating than The Shining's, which was fraught with extreme tensions, endless script changes and incredibly long shoots, to the point that the principal photography process allegedly took an entire year. Though the results of all that stress and work thankfully resulted in one of the best horror films of all time, I think it's safe to say that most of the cast and crew members, including Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall, probably wouldn't go back and do it all over again, if they were given the chance.

But we would. And that's what we're here to do today. So let's hop into our time machines and head back to the late 70s, »

Strange Interpretation: Why ‘The Shining’ is Subliminal Genius, Not Cryptic Confession

26 January 2014 4:51 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There is no other filmmaker who has attracted as much wild speculation and feverish discussion as the late, great Stanley Kubrick. Iconic, unique, celebrated, and the subject of wholesale apocryphal revisionism, the man credited with creating a masterpiece in every major genre is revered no longer so much as a director but as the posthumous leader of a movement. Kubrick is a cult. It speaks volumes of his enigmatic ventures that despite being the creator of the marvelously nebulous 2001, the film in his curriculum vitae which has left the most searing mark and the most varying schools of interpretation is his treatment of a Stephen King horror story. Films have been made, thousands of hours have been spent pouring over every detail, and lives have been changed by the pursuit of a holy grail within his subtext. Even today, 34 years after its release, The Shining debate rages on.

It’s not hard to see why. »

The Shining 'Here's Johnny' scene voted film's most iconic door moment

24 January 2014 7:20 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Shining's 'Here's Johnny!' scene has been named the most iconic door moment in film.

Featuring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall, the violent moment beat William Thacker's blue door in Notting Hill in a poll conducted by Yale Door.

Third place in the survey, in which 1,277 adults took part, is Home Alone's "keep the change, you filthy animal" pizza delivery.

Other movies to feature in the list include Love Actually (Mark declaring his love for Juliette with signs) and The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy entering the land of Oz).

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Matilda, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Gladiator round up the top ten.

A Yale Door spokeswoman stated: "There are certain doors that stick out in people's minds, whether it's Monica's purple apartment door in Friends or doors that »

10 mystifying Razzie nominations

21 January 2014 6:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Top 10 Ryan Lambie 22 Jan 2014 - 05:51

Like any awards ceremony, the Razzies can sometimes make some bizarre decisions. Here's our pick of 10 mystifying nominations...

Established in 1981, the Golden Raspberry Awards have grown from a tiny ceremony hosted in founder John Jb Wilson's living room into their own Hollywood institution. Intended as an antidote to the self-congratulation and glitz of awards season fixtures like the Oscars or the Golden Globes, the Razzies aim to single out the worst films, screenplays and performances of the preceding year, serving up an irreverent parody of Hollywood's vanity and excess.

Sometimes, the Razzie choices aren't too far off the mark. Few would argue against Battlefield Earth's 2000 win for Worst Picture, or that the impenetrably murky The Last Airbender didn't deserve the amusingly-titled award for Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3D.

There have been some really worthwhile categories on occasion, too, like Worst Movie Trends of the Year, »

Altman’s Unsung ’70s

20 January 2014 1:50 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Director Robert Altman had his fair share of ups and downs. The oscillation between works widely lauded and those typically forgotten is prevalent throughout his exceptionally diverse career. This was — and still is — certainly the case with his 1970s output. This decade of remarkable work saw the release of now established classics like M*A*S*H, Nashville, and McCabe & Mrs. Miller, as well as a picture like 3 Women, which would gradually gain a cult following of sorts and subsequently be regarded as a quality movie despite its initial dismissal. But couched between and around these features are more electric and generally more unorthodox films. There are multiple titles from this, arguably Altman’s most creative of decades, that remain generally unheralded to all but his most ardent of admirers.

For Altman, the 1970s began with this disparity. The first year of the decade saw the release of M*A*S*H, »
