Brian Gallagher's Top Overrated / Underrated Movies of 2012

31 December 2012 2:49 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, I had only seen just over 20 movies that had been released in 2012. After deciding that was unacceptable, and thanks to Netflix Instant, Redbox, Amazon Instant Video, and of course, advanced screenings and my local Hollywood theaters, I devoted the last half of the year to seeing as many movies as I could, bringing my tally to around 150 for the year (check out the full list of all the 2012 movies I watched this year here). Since the Mayan apocalypse never came a few days ago, I figured it is a good time to break down my favorite movies of the year. Like last year, I have compiled three separate lists: the Most Overrated Moves of the Year, Most Underrated Movies of the Year, and my Top 10.

Now, there are a lot of great movies that you will not find on these lists, such as blockbusters Marvel's The Avengers, »

The Best Trailers Of 2012

30 December 2012 9:38 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Theatrical Trailer: the official theatrical piece, usually cut from the first (very long) cut of the picture or sometimes (if there is no first cut yet) from dailies (all the shot footage, including all the different takes and angles), maximum length of a trailer is two and a half minutes.

Teaser Trailer: A first, short theatrical preview piece (usually not longer than a minute and a half), cut from a few selected takes and scenes while the picture is still being shot.

For those of you who think it’s okay to show up to a film after the coming attractions – move along. No self-respecting movie geek would dare miss the previews. And don’t get us started on the individuals who arrive during the trailer you’ve been dying to see only to move through your line of sight during the all-important money shot.

In most cases, trailers are »

Wes Anderson Confirms Full 'Grand Budapest Hotel' Cast

27 December 2012 10:00 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

The full ensemble cast for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" has been assembled, and it's just as impressive as we've come to expect in a Wes Anderson movie. In addition to a cast of Anderson regulars, newcomers like Jude Law and Saoirse Ronan also are going to be featured.

Anderson confirmed the array of actors in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter. With his latest film, "Moonrise Kingdom," being considered an awards season contender, Anderson seems to understand that his next film has some big shoes to fill.

"It’s a Euro movie. It’s a period picture," he said. "We have Ralph Fiennes, and we have Tilda Swinton and Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, we have F. Murray Abraham and Jude Law, and we’ve got Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Mathieu Amalric. And I think Owen [Wilson] is gonna have a little part, too. »

Wes Anderson Reveals Full ‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ Cast

27 December 2012 7:59 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Filmmaker Wes Anderson’s Golden Globe-nominated Moonrise Kingdom is not only a critical darling and financial success, it’s also one of indie auteur’s rare films to cross-over beyond his fanbase (read our review, for case in point). Hence, the heightened interest his next project, titled The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Anderson has confirmed his stock company of actors (including Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Owen Wilson) are onboard for Grand Budapest Hotel. He is also re-teaming with numerous past collaborators – such as Moonrise Kingdom players Tilda Swinton and Edward Norton – and new additions Ralph Fiennes and Jude Law.

During a THR interview about his career in general, Anderson teased the plot and setting of Grand Budapest Hotel – before formerly announced the impressive ensemble cast. To quote:

Wes Anderson Adds Everyone To The Grand Budapest Hotel Cast

27 December 2012 6:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Wes Anderson is known for putting together massive ensemble casts of some pretty stellar stars, but it seems like The Grand Budapest Hotel will take the multi-tiered cake. Anderson has finally given a run-down of the cast list, confirming some rumors and putting to rest some old ones – I’m still disappointed about Johnny Depp – and I’ve got to say that the cast list really is impressive.

Everyone is here! No, really, it’s like all of Hollywood’s big-name character actors have turned out for this one. Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzman, Saoirse Ronan, and Ralph Fiennes were all announced awhile ago, so no surprises there. But wait! There’s more! Anderson mainstays Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Adrien Brody and Owen Wilson will also check into The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Take a deep breath, because it’s not over. Tilda Swinton, F. Murray Abraham, Harvey Keitel, »

Wes Anderson Names Full Cast For ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’

27 December 2012 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Wes Anderson is a writer/director who is perhaps an acquired taste. He’s a filmmaker that divides opinion amongst many, especially those of us here at Thn. While I absolutely loved The Royal Tenenbaums, I can see why some consider his work as pretentious and over-indulgent  and I’ve still yet to see his Moonrise Kingdom, so I’ll reserve judgement.

His next project is The Grand Budapest Hotel, which will follow the troubles and tribulations of a character named Mr. Gustave, who serves as the aforementioned hotel’s composed concierge. The two-time Oscar-nominee director confirmed his cast for the forthcoming film, with many previous collaborators onboard. Yes, that includes Bill Murray.

Yes, it’s Grand Budapest Hotel. It’s a Euro movie. It’s a period picture. I can tell you the cast — maybe you already know the cast, but I can tell you properly who it is: We have Ralph Fiennes, »

"Moonrise Kingdom" filmmaker Wes Anderson is still not forthcoming about the plot for his next project "The Grand Budapest Hotel," other than saying it's set in Europe and is a period picture.

He has, however, confirmed some of the names that will be participating. Speaking with THR this week, Anderson said:

"I can tell you properly who it is: We have Ralph Fiennes, and we have Tilda Swinton and Jeff Goldblum, Willem Dafoe, we have F. Murray Abraham and Jude Law, and we’ve got Adrien Brody, Edward Norton, Harvey Keitel, Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray, and Mathieu Amalric. And I think Owen [Wilson] is gonna have a little part, too. Oh, Saoirse Ronan has quite a big part. I’m thinking if I’ve forgotten anybody. Yeah, we have a good group."

Production is slated to begin shortly with a 2014 release being targeted. »

Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel Adds Tilda Swinton And Harvey Keitel

26 December 2012 1:35 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel had small but important roles in Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, but apparently they had a great time working on the project because they are getting set to do more with the writer/director. Both actors, along with Quantum of Solace villain Mathieu Amalric, have been confirmed for roles in The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson's latest film, which is currently gearing up for production.

Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel Adds One Of His Best Casts

26 December 2012 12:21 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Even though the Texan filmmaker Wes Anderson apparently hasn’t booked Johnny Depp into his Hungary-set period piece The Grand Budapest Hotel, Anderson still hasn’t much problem lining-up impressive ensembles for his next movie.

In a recent interview with THR, the director confirmed that Willem Dafoe, Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Edward Norton are part of the cast. Bill Murray, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan, Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law and Jason Schwartzman have previously been confirmed with Fiennes and Ronan as the leads.

However, the movie will also include Moonrise Kingdom players Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel as well as F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus) and Mathieu Amalric (Quantum of Solace).

I think it’s safe to say now that Anderson has reached the point where almost every actor in Hollywood dies to work with him.

The movie is reportedly in the vein of the films of Billy Wilder (The Apartment »

Christmas Box-Office, Spike Lee Judges 'Django Unchained' and 'Star Wars' Turns to 'Star Trek' for Direction

26 December 2012 11:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

1.) Making news out of a non-story is the word out of Empire magazine today in which J.J. Abrams confirms he turned down any involvement in Star Wars: Episode VII: There were the very early conversations and I quickly said that because of my loyalty to Star Trek, and also just being a fan, I wouldn't even want to be involved in the next version of those things. I declined any involvement very early on. I'd rather be in the audience not knowing what was coming, rather than being involved in the minutiae of making them. Abrams directed the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness, which hits theaters in May and I have to ask, does anyone else find it mildly concerning that the level of imagination taken in approaching this new Star Wars trilogy already has the producers looking at a director with his own similar sci-fi franchise already in theaters? »

Wes Anderson Says Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Mathieu Amalric & F. Murray Abraham Have Joined 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'

26 December 2012 8:48 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Wes Anderson's next picture, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," was supposed to star Johnny Depp, but that plan fell through. Nevertheless, it has an outstanding cast featuring Ralph Fiennes, Jude Law, Saoirse Ronan, Jeff Goldblum and regular W.A. collaborators Bill Murray, Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman. Other names rumored early on were past collaborators Edward Norton who starred in "Moonrise Kingdom," Adrien Brody who was one of the brothers in "The Darjeeling Limited" and Willem Dafoe who played the second-in-command in "The Life Aquatic" (the latter two also did voice work in "Fantastic Mr. Fox"). In a recent interview with THR, Anderson confirmed Norton, Brody and Dafoe, and also added to the list "Moonrise Kingdom" cast mates Tilda Swinton and Harvey Keitel, plus F. Murray Abraham ("Amadeus") and French actor Mathieu Amalric (the villain of "Quantum Of »

The Huffington Post has learned that Jason Scwartzman (who last appeared in Moonrise Kingdom) will show up for an episode of Parks & Rec where he will play Dennis Lerpiss, the owner of the last independent movie rental shop in Pawnee. Cleverly called VideoDome, the store is ...
