Will Smith’s ‘Collateral Beauty’ to Open Against ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has some new competition on Dec. 16 — Will Smith’s drama “Collateral Beauty.”

Warner Bros. announced Monday that it has moved “Chicken Soup for the Soul” out of the Dec. 16 slot into 2017 and replaced it with New Line’s “Collateral Beauty.” The “Star Wars” spinoff is the only other title scheduled for release that day.

David Frankel is the director of “Collateral Beauty,” which is being co-financed by Village Roadshow. Smith is starring along with Helen Mirren, Edward Norton, Naomie Harris and Michael Pena.

Producers are Anthony Bregman, Bard Dorros, PalmStar CEO Kevin Frakes, Allan Loeb and Michael Sugar. Smith will portray a successful New York advertising executive who experiences a deep personal tragedy and retreats from life entirely, prompting his colleagues devise a drastic plan to help him recover.

“Rogue One” is directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta and Chris Weitz, »

HBO To Start Over On "Lewis & Clark"

4 February 2016 5:41 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

HBO is essentially abandoning all the work done so far on its six-part miniseries "Lewis and Clark" starring Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts.

An adaptation of Stephen E. Ambrose's book "Undaunted Courage," the project follows the pair (played by Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts) as they traverse uncharted territory on a mission to deliver President Jefferson's message of sovereignty and search for the fabled all-water route to the Pacific.

Multiple episodes of the project were shot before production was shut down halfway through filming so the high-profile historical drama project could be retooled.

HBO said in a statement to The Live Feed: "We have decided to redevelop Lewis and Clark with Michelle Ashford writing". Ashford, who is currently serving as the showrunner on Showtime's "Masters of Sex," penned the original script with Ed Norton and John Curran ("The Painted Veil").

A new re-write will come in which the »

HBO Redeveloping ‘Lewis & Clark’ Miniseries with Michelle Ashford Rewriting

3 February 2016 5:49 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “Lewis & Clark” miniseries is starting anew, entering a stage of major redevelopment with Michelle Ashford rewriting the six-part script, Variety has confirmed.

The troubled miniseries has already hit many bumps along the road, including production being shut down last summer after director and co-writer John Curran exited the high-profile project, which hails from producers Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and National Geographic Studios. Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts star as the titular 19th century explorers who went on a remarkable three-year journey to map the western United States.

“We have decided to redevelop this project with Michelle Ashford writing,” HBO said in a statement to Variety.

Ashford — who is creator and showrunner of Showtime’s “Masters of Sex” — was one of the three original scribes on the mini, along with Norton and the now-departed Curran. “Lewis & Clark” was greenlit last year at this time.

Lewis and Clark has hit another bump in the road — and this time it's entirely changing course. HBO is all but abandoning the six-part miniseries starring Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts. "We have decided to redevelop Lewis and Clark with Michelle Ashford writing," HBO said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, confirming that it is going back to the drawing board with the high-profile historical drama. Ashford, who is currently serving as the showrunner on Showtime's Masters of Sex, penned the original script with Ed Norton and John Curran (The Painted Veil). Once her rewrite comes in,

Why you shouldn’t hold your breath for a new Incredible Hulk movie

2 February 2016 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Just yesterday, I was browsing the Internet when I came across The Incredible Hulk Slot game. In that moment, I began to think about the breadth and the appeal of the Hulk character, and how Marvel has successfully turned him and similar superheroes into international brands and franchises.

With this in mind, it is worth noting that many Marvel fans have been holding their breath waiting for an announcement concerning a new Incredible Hulk film. After all, a revitalised Hulk and Bruce Banner stole the show in the Joss Whedon-directed Avengers, and many felt that the time has come for a new solo adventure.

In terms of a brief history, the Hulk’s appearances in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron came on the back of two failed solo instalments for the Jade Giant. Ed Norton failed to shine in the role, with many citing the portrayal of »

Why Mark Ruffalo's Still Bummed About Joss Whedon Leaving The Marvel Movies

29 January 2016 8:13 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

To date, the character that has been the most difficult for Marvel to figure out on film has been the Incredible Hulk. He was put on the big screen in a film directed by Ang Lee. Then, the character was rebooted by Edward Norton, and eventually recast in the first Avengers film. Today, following two Avengers movies, and with plans for the Hulk to return in more, it.s clear that they have finally figured out what the character needed. Mark Ruffalo, the actor who now plays the part, credits director Joss Whedon with figuring it all out, which is why he.s still a little upset that Whedon won.t be back for more. Because Joss Whedon directed the first Avengers movie he was the one who actually cast Mark Ruffalo as the new Bruce Banner of the McU. It.s something of an odd situation for Ruffalo, since »

Our countdown of the top 100 films of the 21st Century (so far) concludes here with the top 25.

Click here for Part 1! (#100-76)

Click here for Part 2! (#75-51)

Click here for Part 3! (#50-26)

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »

10 Actors Who Refused To Make Sacrifices For Movie Roles

21 January 2016 12:11 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Columbia Pictures

For actors, picking the right role can be the difference between rising astronomically to the heady heights of Hollywood superstardom or fizzling out on a downward spiral of obscurity. And sometimes they really don’t make the right call in these situations.

They often let personal bias get in the way and refuse to make the necessary sacrifices that could make their career represents. Some just don’t want to go to all that effort of getting into character, or fear being typecast further down the road. And then there’s those who hubristically think they’re too big for the part on offer.

Crazy, right? Well were are some of the worst instances of Hollywood A-listers refusing to make sacrifices for roles, missing out on what could have been career-defining films as a result…

Edward Norton, Michael Pena, Rachel McAdams And More Join Collateral Beauty

15 January 2016 3:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Collateral Beauty hasn’t had the easiest time getting made. At first, it was set to be Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s follow-up to the critically acclaimed Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. At that time, Hugh Jackman and Rooney Mara were on board. Then, Jackman dropped out and was replaced by Will Smith. Shortly after that, both Mara and Gomez-Rejon left.

Now, David Frankel is on board and today, we got word from The Wrap that along with Smith and Helen Mirren, the studio has roped in Edward Norton, Michael Pena, Rachel McAdams and Naomie Harris. Pretty solid list of talent, eh?

We’re not sure who everyone’s playing just yet, but we do know that Will Smith is set to step into the shoes of a New York ad exec who “experiences a personal tragedy and falls into a deep depression after which his colleagues resort to an »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About American Psycho

15 January 2016 2:32 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lionsgate

Mary Harron’s American Psycho is a brilliant piece of film-making, but nonetheless a very, very weird one. When else have you seen an investment banker consider feeding a stray cat to a cash machine, for instance?

With that in mind, you might be surprised to hear that there was an even stranger story going on behind the scenes – actors were sacked, directors replaced and at one point the script ended with a big musical number atop a New York landmark. No really, it did.

Within the film itself there’s often more going on than meets the eye, as well. There’s improvisation, unsettling editing and tiny references back to Bret Easton Ellis’ iconic novel that you might have missed. And just you wait until you hear all the weird ways in which Christian Bale prepared for the role of Patrick Bateman. A role that, for a time, »

The snubs and surprises of 2016's batch of Oscar nominees

14 January 2016 7:26 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ever since he drowned in the North AtlanticLeonardo DiCaprio’s road to Oscar gold is one fraught with troubles. Not even becoming Martin Scorsese’s Bff got him any closer to the podium. Nope. Leo has never held an Academy Award at the actual ceremony unless it was Kate Winslet’s — but maybe this year will be different.

 

Leo had the foresight to work with Alejandro González Iñárritu on Oscar Attempt #3,876 – The Revenant. Iñárritu won the big prizes from the Academy last year, going home with both Best Director and Best Picture forBirdman, starring Michael KeatonEmma Stone, and Edward Norton.

This passed Sunday, Iñárritu’s The Revenant won Best Picture at the Golden Globes, with Leonardo taking Best Actor for his bison-liver-eating troubles. Will their winning formula translate into Oscar gold? Their nominations this morning gets them one step closer, but we’ll have to see how it »

Leonardo DiCaprio Says He's Not Ruling Out Kids, Reveals Ed Norton Once Saved His Life While Scuba Diving

12 January 2016 1:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If Leonardo DiCaprio ever becomes a father, he should thank Ed Norton for helping him live long enough to see the day. The unlucky daredevil - who escaped brushes of death while skydiving, swimming with great white sharks in South Africa, and a near plane crash while more sedately sitting in business class - just revealed yet another close call with the great beyond. The Revenant star told Rolling Stone for its February cover story that pal Norton came to the rescue when his oxygen tank failed while the duo were scuba diving in the Galapagos Islands.

The Definitive Romantic Comedies: 50-41

9 January 2016 4:03 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all have predisposed notions about the infamous “romantic comedy.” As with other genres, there’s a large subsection of offerings, giving it a bad name. But, for every tired, cliché-driven comedy, there is another impressive offering that redefines the genre, garners plenty of laughs, and tells an honest story about love and relationships, however warped they may be. In the coming weeks, we’ll take a look at the fifty romantic comedy films that should be seen. These may not all be classic films, but they certainly put a stamp on the industry and the genre we affectionately call “rom-coms.”

 #50. Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Most of Wes Anderson’s films could be described as romantic comedies, but his 2012 effort stands out, as its central story focuses on young love and the need to find acceptance. In Anderson’s world, while quirks abound, true connections between characters are commonplace. With Moonrise Kingdom, »

Causality and Kindness: Nelson’s Latest Look at All the Lonely People

The multifaceted Tim Blake Nelson unveils his latest directorial effort in nearly seven years with Anesthesia, a New York set drama focused on a series of interconnected characters leading up to a brutal crime of the narrative’s central figure. It’s sometimes easy to forget Nelson, perhaps best known as a character actor in an incalculable amount of arresting performances across a variety of films, is also an accomplished writer and director, premiering his own eclectic five features since his first (and best) 1997 debut Eye of God. Since then, he made a contemporized version of Shakespeare’s Othello in 2001 with O, an English language drama centered on a rebellious group of Sonderkomandos attempting to overthrow their Nazi captors in the grueling The Grey Zone (also 2001) and a comedy crime drama Leaves of Grass (2009) with Edward Norton pulling double duty as twins. »
