Michael Bay Bringing Cosmic Motors To The Big Screen

16 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Michael Bay is certainly no stranger to making movies based around shiny vehicles - that was basically the impetuous behind all four Transformer titles. And while the director has said that he won't be back for the inevitable Transformers 5, that doesn't mean he's done playing around with flashy cars. Enter Cosmic Motors, a new film based on an adaptation of a concept art book that Bay is now producing and shepherding to the big screen. Cosmic Motors was written by Daniel Simon and first published back in 2007, but is only now on the fast track to become a movie, thanks to a partnership between Michael Bay and Warner Bros. Thought it's not yet clear exactly how the film will function story-wise, Kyle Ward has been brought on to pen the screenplay. His previous credits include the Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel Machete Kills, as well as the upcoming Hitman sequel Agent 47. »

Box Office 4-Day: ‘Guardians’ No. 1 With $280M+ Cume As Summer Closes Down 14.7% Vs. 2013

21 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

7th Update, Monday, 9:10 Am: Calculations are out for the end of summer for the period May 2nd through Sept. 1 and this year the industry is down 14.7% from 2013. Specifically, this year grossed $4.055B compared to last year’s $4.753B, according to Rentrak. For the analysis on this, see:

6th Update, Monday, 8:17 Am: Guardians of the Galaxy will end the summer with over $280.5M domestically — and, of course, it’s still playing. We expect this one to eventually pass $300M as there is nothing opening next weekend. This one will clock in with an estimated $22.4M to $23M for the weekend. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will log roughly $166.3M in only four weeks for Paramount. This one will also play through the next weekend.

5 Reasons Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Was A Huge Flop

1 September 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Dimension Films

All in all, 2014 was a pretty great year for comic book movies. Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox knocked it out of the park with X-Men: Days of Future Past, while Marvel had two tremendous (and well-received) hits on their hands: Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy (which just became the highest-grossing film of the year at the United States box office).

Even The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which was met with quite a bit of vitriol and a bad critical reception when it hit theaters in May, managed to take in over $750 million worldwide. That makes the fate of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For even harder to bear, as it was dead upon arrival last week and has become one of the biggest flops of the year.

In ten days, the film hasn’t even crossed »

Flickering Myth Podcast – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Review

1 September 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth Podcast heads to Sin City

Out now in cinemas and under performing badly, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For sees Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller return to the world they created back in 2005 with this belated sequel. On this episode of the Flickering Myth Podcast, Deputy Editor Luke Owen sits down with staff writers Scott Davis and Rohan Morbey to talk about the movie and why it hasn’t performed well at the box office.

Read our reviews here, here and here.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For weaves together two of Frank Miller’s classic stories with new tales in which the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more repulsive inhabitants. In Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. »

Guardians of the Galaxy tops the Us box office after a lacklustre Labor Day weekend

1 September 2014 12:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Without much competition and a slow Labor Day Weekend, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy topped the Us box office for a second week.

Guardians of the Galaxy is now the biggest movie of the year, beating out Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction having added another $16.3 million over the weekend to bring its domestic total to $274.6 million. If it can maintain this 5% drop from last week, James Gunn’s space epic should have no trouble crossing the $300 million mark domestic, which would be the first film of 2014 to do so.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remained in second place with $11.7 million while If I Stay also managed to keep third place with $9.2 million.

The highest new entry this week belonged to found footage horror movie As Above, So Below which pulled in $8.3 million. Sadly for fans of busting ghosts but the re-release of »

Details Behind Aaa’s Upcoming American Television Series

29 August 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

wwe.com

Aaa continues to be the talk of the wrestling world following Alberto Del Rio and Rey Mysterio’s participation with the Mexican promotion. The company held their largest event of the year, Triplemania, opposite WWE’s SummerSlam and drew a sellout crowd to the Arena Ciudad in Mexico City. Now, Aaa has officially announced a new television show to air in the United States on the El Rey Network.

The show — which is titled “Lucha Underground” — will premiere on October 8th of this year. Aaa will make their American debut on El Rey — a network started by famed filmmaker, Robert Rodriguez. Together, the two companies are hyping a revolutionary wrestling product, which is to be produced by One Three Media — owned by Emmy-winning reality television producer Mark Burnett.

Burnett, the show’s Executive Producer, stated that, “Not since ‘The Contender’ premiere has a new series combined this level of drama and athletic competition. »

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 »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For – 15 Easter Eggs & References You Must See

28 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Dimension Films

Quite whether you were ever as excited by the much-delayed arrival of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is probably a matter for debate, but Robert Rodriguez’s hyper-stylised, seriously cool sequel/prequel has more than enough to reward fans who are still ardently attracted to the franchise. Though the aesthetic shtick could have worn a little thin, the embracing of 3D technology and some deliriously bold creative choices more than make up for the fact that at times the film misses its beats completely, including fudging some of the best elements of its predecessor.

It’s a little too silly, and a little too blatant to ever really be considered in the same terms as that movie – which was arguably one of the most impressive, most important moments in the comic book movie genre – but there is a lot to admire about the noir-soaked exercise in artistry. »

Extended First Look at Smoke & Mirrors: The Story Of Tom Savini [Clip]

27 August 2014 5:14 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

When it comes to the world of practical effects, Tom Savini is kind of a god. If you grew up in the 80s watching horror movies, chances are you've seen and perhaps even been had nightmares thanks to Savini's work.

Director Jason Baker is in the process of finishing work on Smoke and Mirrors: The Story of Tom Savini which chronicles the effects master and actor through his career. Rather than cut together a trailer, Baker has released an extended preview of the documentary, focusing mostly on Savini's work on Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn.

Baker has been working on the project since 2011 (he launched a successful Kickstarter in 2011) and it was supposed to be ready in June of this year though from the notes attached to this preview which Baker released today (t [Continued ...] »

El Rey Network, Mark Burnett Announce Production of ‘Lucha Underground’

27 August 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

El Rey Network is putting its spin on lucha wrestling with “Lucha Underground,” an original unscripted series from Mark Burnett’s One Three Media.

The hour-long weekly series will feature five Luchadores: Blue Demon Jr, Sexy Star, Fenix, Drago and Pentagon Jr. Currently, Lucha Libre’s freestyle wrestling draws over 85% of Mexican television viewers, and “Lucha Underground” expects to bring drama, excitement and action to the U.S. as masked heroes and villains battle in the ring for wrestling supremacy.

“Not since ‘The Contender’ premiered has a new series combined this level of drama and athletic competition,” said Burnett, who will executive produce the series. “Our Luchadores are fantastic, the action will be intense – and this season is just the beginning.”

El Rey Network’s vice Chair Scott Sassa added, “The ‘Lucha Underground’ franchise is perfect for El Rey Network.  It features good versus evil, intense action, humor, drama, great »

Lone Star Cinema: Spy Kids

27 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

When the recent news broke that Alexa Vega will play a recurring character on the upcoming season of country music soap Nashville, now seemed like a perfect time to revisit the original Spy Kids. I tend to picture Vega as she appeared in the Robert Rodriguez film, but she has grown much since then. She's even married... twice.

In 2001, she and co-star Daryl Sabara (whose first role was as Murphy's baby on '90s cultural touchstone, Murphy Brown) played Carmen and Juni Cortez, troubled private-school kids. Their parents Ingrid (Carla Gugino, Karen Sisco, Sucker Punch) and Gregorio (Antonio Banderas) are consultants who have not yet admitted to the children that they used to be secret agents (who met cute at the Hotel Belen, better known as the Omni Hotel downtown).

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 »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

26 August 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

In 2005, director Robert Rodriguez, with Frank Miller and Quentin Tarantino riding shotgun, brought Miller's neo-noir graphic novel series Sin City to life, keeping the hyper stylised aesthetic and hard boiled dialogue intact during the transition from page to screen. It was rightly lauded for its stunning visuals, mainly presented in black and white with flashes of vivid colour, and is the finest example of a true comic book to screen translation to date. Now, nine years later, Rodriguez and Miller have delivered the long awaited sequel, and, sadly, it could have stayed a wish in the heart of every Sin City fan, proving to be a tired, lazy retread of what delighted us almost a decade ago. Taking it's cue from the original, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is made up of a number of separate stories all taking place in the titular, corrupt city. Also like the first Sin City, »

At the Texas Premiere for 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

26 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For had its Texas premiere at the Paramount Theatre last week, and writer/director Robert Rodriguez was on the red carpet for the hometown screening that benefited the Austin Film Society. Unfortunately co-director/co-writer Frank Miller missed his flight and with back-to-back premieres -- Los Angeles, Austin, New York -- it was not possible for him to be at the Austin screening.

Rodriguez said he made Miller a co-director because he knew visual storytelling, and as a fellow cartoonist Rodriguez knew Miller would love the experience.

"It's exactly the same thing, but you are using a camera and your paper characters will now talk to you because they are actors, and that will give you the biggest thrill." Additionally, Rodriguez told Miller that he would "be able to tell backstories that aren't even in any of your books.
