Lou Ferrigno Back As Hulk For ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’

23 April 2014 7:47 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Some actors find one role that follow them round forever. Some actors hate it and do everything in their power to shake of the type-casting, whilst others fully embrace the role and have successful careers off of it. Lou Ferrigno slots into the latter group with him confirming that he will be playing Hulk again in Avengers: The Age Of Ultron.

Ferrigno first played the role in 1977 during television series The Incredible Hulk, and has gone on to voice the creature in most of the recent movie adaptations. Since his portrayal it has been hard to get another actor to stick to the role for more than one film with Eric Bana and Edward Norton both passing on further adventures.

Mark Ruffalo fans need not worry though as Ferrigno is on vocal duties only, well roaring duties only. This news shouldn’t come as a surprise as the actor provided »

‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ raids Wes Anderson’s vinyl collection for its rainy day playlist

20 April 2014 9:11 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Composed by Alexandre Desplat

Abkco Records

I have no clue which country, if any, “Zubrowka” is meant to represent in The Grand Budapest Hotel. I can, however, point it out on a map. Er, at least I can point out where it should be. Wes Anderson’s fictional European nation doesn’t exist outside his eighth feature but from its intricate period design to the hotel concierge’s (Ralph Fiennes) well-rounded zest for life, Zubrowka feels real.

Partial credit also goes to Alexandre Desplat, who teams with Anderson for a third time and crafts a rich, ambiguously European score both in sound and in name. Honestly, what could the title of the opening track “s’Rothe-Zauerli” possibly translate to? Apart from providing names for third-rate Star Wars villains, Zubrowkan (?) rings like a cross between Swiss and Spanish, and the track’s barbershop quartet of yodels put a point in the former. »

Before There Was Snapchat: A Look Back At The Biggest Stars Of 1999

17 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

View Photo Gallery

1999 was a much simpler time. Brad and Jen. Julia and Ben(jamin Bratt). Teenage films starring actual teenagers topping the box office. Without the addition of reality television and internet celebrities, movie stars were the biggest names covering the pages of tabloids and MTV’s Trl was a must-hit stop for anyone wanting to make an impact on an audience under 30. Before the onslaught of reality star sex tapes and power couple portmanteau, Julia Roberts was just a girl, dating a Law and Order hunk and Nicole Kidman was still married to Tom Cruise. (Pause for laughs.)

Before the year 2000 high school flicks like American Pie proved just as valuable at the box office as boy bands and a new Latin wave were to album sales. Brad Pitt had split from Gwyneth Paltrow, who rebounded with Ben Affleck. And because this was prior to Goop or conscious uncoupling, »

Carnage is maybe-probably in the 'Venom' spinoff movie

15 April 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in a few weeks, but Sony continues to busily construct the architecture to turn its solo superhero franchise into a multi-spinoff megafranchise, with villain-centric films about The Sinister Six and Venom promising to offer a slightly darker alternative to the glitter-bright Marvel Studios universe. (If you will, Sony’s Spider-verse is the Hot Topic to Marvel Studios’ Pacific Sunwear.) The Sinister Six appears closer to reality, with Drew Goddard apparently onboard to write-direct. But the studio also dropped a potentially big hint about the Venom film on the Daily Bugle Tumblr built for Amazing Spider-Man 2. »

David Fincher: Gone Girl director's career in movie trailers

14 April 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first trailer for David Fincher's hotly-anticipated thriller Gone Girl debuted today, and it's yet another fantastic promo from a director who's served up some of the best mainstream Hollywood fare over the last two decades.

Many movies rely on marketing agencies to cut their trailer material, but in recent years Fincher has operated a little differently, getting involved himself from the get-go to help shape how his movies are sold. It shows; first looks for Fincher releases are often mini-movies in themselves, oblique and creative teasers designed to hook you in before a more accessible promo is released.

Digital Spy goes film-by-film with Fincher's trailer back catalogue to highlight 8 of his best promos below. We've excluded Alien 3 on the grounds that Fincher lost final cut to the studio and had little to do with the film by the time it was released.

'Saturday Night Live' best host poll: Did Seth Rogen play it too safe? -- Vote

14 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Perhaps Seth Rogen’s latest Saturday Night Live episode wasn’t especially inspired: it opened with the requisite weed jokes, made fun of his oft-imitated laugh, and leaned on some unnecessary celebrity cameos. But if you love Rogen’s slacker comedy, maybe that was exactly what you tuned in for. At least he didn’t tap dance or juggle torches to prove that he’s not just a funny guy.

Voters in our ongoing third annual Mr. Saturday Night contest will have to decide whether Rogen played it too safe for a guy who was hosting for the third time, »

Alejandro González Iñárritu's 'Birdman' Will Not Be Going To Cannes

14 April 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a few days, the Cannes Film Festival will announce their slate, and while we have our guesses as to what movies will feature on the Croisette, one film that was widely expected to showcase in the south of France won't be in the lineup. Fox Searchlight confirmed with The Playlist that Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" will still be in post-production through the end of May and early June, and will not be part of Cannes. But don't be too bummed. The studio has announced a fall release date for the movie, and our guess is that you'll want to keep your eyes peeled to Telluride or Tiff instead. Bringing together a starry ensemble, including Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough and Amy Ryan, the black comedy tells the story of an actor (Keaton)—famous for portraying an iconic superhero—as he struggles to mount a Broadway play. »

Lusty debuts by Divergent, Grand Budapest Hotel

13 April 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Kids and families flocked to The Lego Movie and the Captain America sequel while teenagers embraced Divergent and adults checked into The Grand Budapest Hotel last weekend.

All told it was a buoyant frame as nationwide takings improved by 6% to $18.25 million and six titles each earned more than $1 million.

Animated comedy The Lego Movie eased by 10% to $5.1 million in its second weekend, propelling its haul to $14.4 million, according to Rentrak.s estimates. The Village Roadshow Pictures/Warner Bros. co-production looks set to reach $28 million, if not $30 million, and the worldwide cume hit $US425 million.

Superhero adventure Captain America: The Winter Soldier grabbed $3.6 million despite falling by 40%, to elevate its 11-day total to $12.2 million. However the Marvel franchise isn.t tracking as strongly here as in the Us, where the film starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel J. Jackson has rung up $US159 million in 10 days.

Michael Keaton Superhero Drama Birdman Gets October 2014 Release Date

13 April 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman is one of the strangest and most exciting films of the year, and though we’re still not quite sure what to expect, we now know when we can expect it. Fox Searchlight has assigned the dark comedy an October 17th, 2014 release date, which may give it a fighting chance on the awards circuit.

Birdman stars Michael Keaton as an actor famous for portraying an iconic superhero, who battles his ego and attempts to recover his family and career while struggling to mount a Broadway play. Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts will round out what looks to be a very strong supporting cast.

Personally, I’m enjoying Keaton’s little career resurgence that we’ve seen over the last couple of years, and this film sounds right up his alley. I think many people forget how comedic he can be and »

'Birdman', Set for October 2014 Release Date, Won't be Ready for Cannes

12 April 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fox Searchlight has set an October 17 release date for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman, the director's new black comedy expected by most to premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival, but Fox Searchlight co-president Stephen Gilula told Deadline the film "won't complete post production until late May or early June", so the Cannes dream seems over. Interestingly enough, the film has already been rated R for language throughout, some sexual content and brief violence. Nevertheless, expect a premiere in Venice, Toronto or Telluride. The film stars Michael Keaton as an actor, famous for portraying a superhero, who's struggling to mount a Broadway play. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career and himself. Along with Keaton the film co-stars Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough and Amy Ryan. I know a lot of people are »

Birdman to get October release

12 April 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Fox Searchlight and Regency Enterprises have positioned their Alejandro Iñárritu dark comedy in a prime awards season slot.

Birdman aka The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance will go on limited released on October 17 and roll out internationally in January 2015.

Given the autumn release date and the fact that the film is unlikely to be completed until late May or June, an autumn festival berth seems most likely. Worldview Entertainment is co-financing with Searchlight and Regency Enterprises.

Cannes launched Iñárritu’s 2000 breakout Amores Perros, as well as Babel in 2006 and most recently Biutiful in 2010. 21 Grams premered at Venice in 2003.

Michael Keaton stars in the tale of an actor famous for once playing an iconic superhero who attempts to recover himself, his career and his family as he struggles to put on a Broadway play.

The ensemble includes Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts.

Iñárritu co-wrote the screenplay with Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris Jr and »

Inarritu's 'Birdman' Starring Michael Keaton Set to Open this October

11 April 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Fox Searchlight has announced a release date for Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Birdman, a Broadway stage drama about a fading actor starring Michael Keaton (seen above), for early in awards season 2014. Birdman will open in select theaters starting October 17th, 2014 this fall; a similar release date slot was used by Searchlight to debut 12 Years a Slave last year, and that went all the way to win Best Picture. Not saying that Birdman has that chance as we haven't seen much yet, but it will be something to behold anyway - with Oscar winner Emmanuel Lubezki behind the long-take cinematography. Also in the cast: Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone, and Naomi Watts. Birdman, co-written & directed by Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu (of Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel, Biutiful), has been described as a dark comedy.
