The Earth Speaks: A Conversation on Paul W.S. Anderson's "Pompeii"

18 November 2014 9:57 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Paul W.S. Anderson has continued his explorations in 3D cinema with his latest film, Pompeii. It’s a simplistic love story in the vein of Titanic, two mismatched, class-divided lovers contrasted against one of history’s worst natural disasters. The story concerns a Celtic gladiator named Milo (Kit Harrington), who witnessed the slaughter of his family by the Roman Empire, under the command of Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland). Soon, after being spotted as a promising business prospect for Pompeii’s gladiator games, Milo is sent to the titular city. While on the way, he first meets Cassia (Emily Browning), the melancholic (by way of Kate Winslet in Titanic) daughter of the wealthy class. After arriving in Pompeii, Milo meets fellow slave and gladiator Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and they soon become friends, bonded by their captivity. Corvus, now a senator, arrives in Pompeii to broker a land deal, and with all the players now arrived, »

Distribution Successes Lift Profits at China’s Bona Film

13 November 2014 2:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hong Kong — China’s Bona Film Group exceeded its own guidance with a third quarter net profit of $9.3 million. Net revenues were $100 million, compared with $35 million in the same period last year.

The numbers were driven by the runaway success of road movie “The Continent,” directed by first film by celebrity blogger and race driver Han Han. Bona also released “The White Haired Witch,” and two imported titles Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Pompeii” and Jaume Collet-Serra’s “Non Stop.”

Company founder and CEO Yu Dong described the result as a “tremendous success.”

In a conference call with financial analysts, Yu said that the company’s two main goals are to expand in the local Chinese business and in Hollywood, where Bona is planning to invest in and produce mainstream movies, making the company increasingly diversified and increasingly international. He said that the company’s focus on production and content ownership »

Resident Evil Infects Small Screen Viewers

14 October 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

Will we see more of the scifi oriented insanity that Paul W.S. Anderson has been forcing down our throats for the last few years Will the story mirror the storylines offered up in the popular video game line Might we see a direct tiein to the first movie which was not only faithful to the tone of the game but also placed horror at the forefront of things Were going to be forced to wait on answers to those questions but were hopeful. Its about time we steered clear of all the crazy clone (among other) business and got down to the blood and guts that gamers fell in love with more than a decade ago. »

Resident Evil TV Series in Early Stages of Development

13 October 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The outbreak started in Raccoon City, but the living dead made their way into the video game world before shambling onto the big screen. The zombie infection created in an Umbrella Corporation lab could spread to the small screen, too, as it’s been revealed that a Resident Evil spin-off TV series is in the works.

According to Variety, Constantin Film is developing a Resident Evil TV series that is planned to premiere sometime after the the next (and perhaps, final) installment in Paul W.S. Anderson’s stylish zombie-slaying film series.

Principal photography on the follow-up to 2012’s Resident Evil: Retribution (the franchise’s fifth film), tentatively titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, is expected to begin next summer in South Africa, so it will be a while before the TV series makes its debut.

It’s not known at this time what characters the Resident Evil TV series would follow, »

13 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

German production company Constantin Film revealed at the Mipcom TV market in Cannes this weekend that they are developing TV show spin-offs for their film franchises Resident Evil and The Mortal Instruments. Here's what Constantin's Martin Moszkowicz had to say in a statement.

"We are moving rapidly. Constantin has a lot of feature film brands and we are moving them into television. For instance, we own the rights to the book series The Mortal Instruments, and we just hired a showrunner in Los Angeles, and our offices in Los Angeles and Canada are starting production next year on at least two or three international shows."

Ed Decter, who most recently produced TV shows such as Unforgettable and The Client List, is reportedly the showrunner attached to The Mortal Instruments, according to The Hollywood Reporter, with production slated to begin sometime next year.

The Mortal Instruments was initially slated to be a feature film franchise, »

When Paul W.S. Anderson's next Resident Evil film hits theaters (likely in 2016 at this point), a television series could possibly follow. Variety reports Constantin Film - the company behind the long-running series - is looking to produce a spin-off show.

Company chairman Martin Moszkowicz said, per Variety, “Constantin has a lot of feature film brands and we are moving them into television. For instance, we own the rights to the book series ‘The Mortal Instruments,’ and we just hired a showrunner in Los Angeles, and our offices in Los Angeles and Canada are starting production next year on at least two or three international shows."

Movie Review – Annabelle (2014)

8 October 2014 2:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Annabelle, 2014.

Directed by John R. Leonetti.

Starring Annabelle Wallis, Ward Horton, Tony Amendola and Alfre Woodard.

Synopsis:

A couple begin to experience terrifying supernatural occurrences involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.

John R. Leonetti is clearly a nice guy and is well liked by the people he works with. Having worked as director of photography on Paul W.S. Anderson’s Mortal Kombat, his nice attitude meant he was given the director’s chair for its sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. And despite that being a critical flop (but financially successful), he was hired to direct the straight-to-dvd feature, The Butterfly Effect 2, nearly ten years later which was once again a critical failure. Since 2007, Leonetti has been working with James Wan in the camera department for titles like Dead Silence, Insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2 and The Conjuring and has done an admirable job. So, »

‘Alien Isolation:’ The Horror Game That Could Have Been Ridley Scott’s Sequel

7 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Sometimes I’m not sure what’s scarier: the implacably murderous Alien in Ridley Scott’s film, or the fact that the groundbreaking science-fiction movie debuted 35 years ago. Yikes!

To celebrate, of sorts, Fox and Sega have collaborated on Alien Isolation, a videogame debuting today that lovingly recreates the grungy, lived-in look of the original movie alongside plenty of creepy jolts and chills of its own. It’s all plunked down in a new setting that would be a fantastic sequel (hint, hint) were Sir Ridley ever to be so disposed. If you can handle the game’s gut-churning suspense, it’s available for PCs and Sony and Microsoft videogame consoles of the two most recent generations. I highly recommend it for those with durable stomach linings and an inclination to have the bejeezus scared out of them.

It’s part of a gamer genre called “survival horror,” and that »

Shelf Life: Event Horizon

5 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. Nowadays, I like to think of director Paul W.S. Anderson as Michael Bay, minus a couple of million dollars. He has a great eye for visuals, and an inexplicably popular franchise, Resident Evil, he falls back on every couple of years, but his movies receive a not undeserved critical drubbing, far beyond anything the Master of Bayhem gets. Now the only enjoyment that I get from him is jokes playing on his name's similarity to the much more favoured Paul Thomas Anderson (you don't know the joy of angering hardcore film nerds by saying, "I can't wait for the next Paul Anderson film"). But there was a time, before the video game adaptions and putting his wife in everything, that I found him endlessly entertaining, »

Film Review: ‘Dracula Untold’

30 September 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s nothing new under the moon in “Dracula Untold,” a decorous but dull origin story that attempts to turn history’s most famous vampire into a kind of male Maleficent — a misunderstood husband/father/ruler who turned to the dark side out of the noblest intentions. What next? “Freddy Krueger Meets Dr. Freud?” Lavishly mounted by first-time feature director Gary Shore, minus the cheeky good humor that propelled his 2006 creature-feature short “The Draft,” this Legendary-Universal co-production (which opens today overseas, 10 days ahead of its domestic bow) looks to scare up only modest Halloween-season biz amid competition from Warners’ “Annabelle” (out Oct. 3) and U’s own “Ouija” (out Oct. 24).

Like Bram Stoker before them, screenwriters Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (the forthcoming “Gods of Egypt”) take their inspiration from the real historical figure of Vlad Dracula (aka Vlad the Impaler), a 15th-century Transylvanian prince, taken hostage as a teenager »

Tetris: The Movie to be an "epic science fiction adventure"

Nope, it is not April 1st. This is real, people. We must be scraping the bottom of the barrel because it looks like a movie version of Tetris is actually coming to a theater near you. Threshold Entertainment, who produced Paul W.S. Anderson's Mortal Kombat, are developing the film based on the puzzle game alongside the Tetris Company in what they are calling an "epic scifi adventure". I won't even explain what Tetris is because no one in the world is not familiar with the »

Fantastic Fest 2014: Everly – The Review

24 September 2014 7:33 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sometimes a film is centered around a strong female lead. Other times it is centered around a cheap fabrication of that idea. Over the past 10 years we’ve seen so many action films abuse the idea of a “strong female lead.” The Resident Evil series, the Underworld series, Ultraviolet (another Millla Jovovich vehicle), and the most guilty film of them all, Sucker Punch. Granted, Everly isn’t nearly as guilty as some of the aforementioned films, but it does perpetuate the same stereotype. One where the only way for us to sympathize with our vengeful heroine is to first present her as a flawed and broken woman and then show her overcome personal and physical obstacles.

Salma Hayek plays a woman who has been held captive for over four years in the movie Everly. We first meet her after she has been brutally violated (any indication of this is never »

Thn Speaks To Hollywood Director Paul W.S. Anderson

16 September 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

From Aliens, to pre-historic pyramids, post-apocalyptic wastelands and swashbuckling saviours…few men in Hollywood have conquered as many different variations of the action genre. Paul W.S Anderson however, has managed to bring his unique style and visual flare to each of these vastly different sequels, crossovers, and video game adaptations. Although some may occasionally question the energetic film maker’s curious directorial choices, few can argue with the huge box office returns his productions receive.

Interestingly, Anderson is also responsible for the only two video game adaptations to spawn successful film franchises, with upcoming instalments currently in the pipeline. With that in mind however, it’s probably a good thing that the fantastic director skilfully sets himself apart from other A-list directors, with his secondary occupation as the husband of Milla Jovovich arguably earning him just as much attention.

Thankfully, Anderson managed to find time in his busy schedule of Zombie shooting, »

DVD Review: 'Pompeii'

16 September 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆The pride of the Roman Empire is brought to its knees by director Paul W.S. Anderson and a small army of screenwriters in silly disaster flick Pompeii (2014). Kit Harington, of Game of Thrones fame, stars as Milo, the last survivor of a tribe of Celts. As a child, Milo saw his family slaughtered by Roman forces led by Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland, chewing the Italian scenery for all his worth) and his lackey Proculus (Sasha Roiz); Milo now finds himself in Pompeii as a gladiator-slave, where Corvus is negotiating a trade agreement with the city's patrician, Severus (Mad Men's Jared Harris). Corvus is also pursuing Severus' daughter, Cassia (Emily Browning), who is enamoured with Milo after a chance meeting on the road.
