Paul Feig Talks Spy, Jason Statham, and Test Screenings

10 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When a big movie studio is willing to show a film months before its release, they know they have the goods. That was definitely the case when 20th Century Fox world premiered writer-director Paul Feig’s comedy Spy at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.  The potential franchise-starter features Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who goes into the field for the very first time after her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid. Loaded with an all-star cast (Jason StathamRose ByrneMiranda HartBobby CannavaleAllison JanneyPeter Serafinowicz, and Morena Baccarin), one of the main reasons Spy is so great is that each supporting character has a moment to shine, and Statham completely knocks it out of the park in his first big studio comedy. During the premiere, the crowd was laughing so loud I missed lines of dialogue between Statham and McCarthy. Trust me, »

Our Favorite Films From SXSW

25 March 2015 6:16 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Kelly and Aaron both had the chance to go to SXSW this year and cover it for Cinelinx, here's their top movie recommendations that they had the chance to see and you need to see once they're released.

Kelly's SXSW Top 3

1. The Final Girls 

This film took me by surprise, in all honestly I was debating on not going but decided last minute to see it and I am glad I did. I was expecting it to be it a little entertaining because it does have an all star comedy cast including Adam Devine and Thomas Middleditch but i was blown away. With hilarious diagloue and a great meta storyline about modern day teens getting stuck in a 1980's sleep away camp horror, be sure to keep this one on your radar for it's release date. It's one of the most original movie concepts I have seen in a long time, »

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See Furious 7

25 March 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It took me a while to get on board with the Fast & Furious franchise, but after the last couple of films, I am buckled in and ready to drive out the back of a plane. Furious 7 had a difficult production to say the least, and it will likely be an emotional film due to the death of Paul Walker. However, that doesn’t mean the film also won’t be the enjoyable blockbuster, and it pulled it ecstatic buzz when it premiered at SXSW (click here for Perri’s review). I know I’m ready for another ride. I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to an early screening of Furious 7. To enter for a chance to win, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “Furious 7”.  The screening is on Tuesday, March 31st at Regal Atlantic Station at 7:00Pm, »

'Furious 7': Learn How Weta Created a Digital Paul Walker

25 March 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Furious 7 hits theaters next weekend, it will be the last time the late Paul Walker will ever be seen on the big screen. The actor passed away in November 2013, while on a brief Thanksgiving hiatus from shooting Furious 7, which lead to the production shutting down for several months, not only for the actors to mourn their friend, but for the filmmakers to figure out how to give him a proper send-off. We reported last April that the actor's brothers, Cody Walker and Caleb Walker, served as stand-ins for Paul when production resumed, but now we have new details about how visual effects artists re-created the late actor.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Peter Jackson's Weta Digital effects house took unused footage from previous Fast and Furious movies to re-create a digital version of Paul Walker for the rest of the Furious 7 production. The process is »

'Furious 7' Featurettes Explore Origins, Cars & Locations

25 March 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Vin Diesel and several other cast members take us back to the origins of the Fast and Furious franchise in one of three new featurettes for Furious 7. What you may not remember is the original 2001 action-thriller The Fast and the Furious is actually based on a 1998 Vibe magazine article entitled Racer X (clickHere to read the full article) that focused on the New York street racing scene. From those humble roots, a blockbuster franchise was born.

The second featurette showcases one of the most exotic cars in the entire franchise, the Lykan Hypersport, a car that sells for $3.4 million, since only seven of them were ever made. This is the same car that is shown in the trailers and TV spots, when Vin Diesel's Dom literally jumps from building to building behind the wheel. Car supervisor Dennis McCarthy reveals that this car is the most expensive ever used in the entire franchise. »

25 March 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you want to win Best Picture at the Oscars it's good to have a variety of stories to tell. Yesterday we learned Vin Diesel believes Furious 7 pretty much has Best Picture at the 2016 Oscars all locked up and one story he'll be able to recount was that time they featured a $3.4 million car as it drove out the window of a skyscraper. The car is the W Motors Lykan, there are only seven of them in the world and should you have the ducats to purchase one you'll be able to decide between using rubies and diamonds embedded in the headlights as well as the option of integrating rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds or sapphires into the vehicle at purchase. This is the first car to have diamonds in the headlights, which are made up of titanium Led blades with 420, 15 karat diamonds. Want morec Check out the Furious 7 »

Furious 7 will win Best Picture at the 2016 Oscars, says Vin Diesel

24 March 2015 3:12 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Vin Diesel has predicted that Furious 7 will win Best Picture at the 2016 Academy Awards.

The upcoming sequel – which is the last Fast & Furious film to feature the late Paul Walker – reunites Diesel with Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez for a storyline introducing Jason Statham as a new villain.

No film in the Fast & Furious franchise has ever earned an Oscar, with most instalments being met with mixed critical reviews.

"Universal is going to have the biggest movie in history with this movie," Diesel told Variety of Furious 7. "It will probably win Best Picture at the Oscars, unless the Oscars don't want to be relevant ever.

"This will win Best Picture. There is nothing that will ever come close to the power of this thing."

Diesel went on to insist that Furious 7 deserves awards recognition for topping previous films in terms of action.

"We were successful in one-upping the action sequences, »

Kenneth Branagh interview: Cinderella, audiences, Statham

24 March 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kenneth Branagh chats to us about directing Cinderella, Cate Blanchett, Patrick Doyle and his favourite Jason Statham film.

With an opening weekend that topped $70m in the Us, Kenneth Branagh may have the hit of his movie directing career on his hands with his live action Cinderella take. It's a strong film too, that finally makes it to the UK this week. And ahead of its release, he spared us some time for a natter about it...

I think I've worked out what you're up to. I've worked out your ruse. You do Thor, Cinderella and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Three different juggernauts, aimed at three different segments of the market, opening your work up to an audience that may otherwise not be familiar with it.

This is all about selling DVDs of Peter's Friends, isn't it?

[Laughs] That would be a lovely by-product.

Were you consciously looking for different audience subsets, »
