Rob Lowe, Megan Mullally & Jenna Fischer Set To Star In NBC’s ‘Apocalypse’

21 January 2015 10:08 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rob Lowe (“Parks and Recreation”), Megan Mullally (“Will & Grace”) and Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) are set to star in NBC’s “Apocalypse,” the net announced Wednesday.

The hourlong dramedy about the last days of mankind is a co-production with Sky TV.

The series, slated for 10 episodes, follows an extended family whose lives unexpectedly cross paths, just as the news of an impending comet colliding with Earth hits. The characters — some of whom are destined to live in a bunker below ground — are described as a foul-mouthed priest, an unhinged white supremacist, a mild-mannered bank manager, a germophobic cyberterrorist, a five-star general and a child who possibly rose from the dead.

The series also stars British actors Matthew Baynton, Paterson Joseph and Joel Fry.

“This is an out-of-the-box and wholly original project that offers just the right combination of both high drama and humor,” said Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment. »

15 January 2015 8:37 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Good Morning Oscar fans! Today is nomination day!

Wamg was in the thick of nomination morning fever at the home of the Oscars – the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. 

Prior to the announcement, A.M.P.A.S. and the show’s producing team, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, gave the press assembled in the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre a first look at the new Oscar promo featuring host Neil Patrick Harris, titled “Anything Can Happen,” and given what went down this morning, that’s certainly the case.

Let’s get right to the big shockers – No Lego Movie for Best Animated Feature or Life Itself in Best Documentary Feature.

Also missing among the presumed nominees were Ava DuVernay (Selma, directing), Clint Eastwood (American Sniper, directing), Jennifer Aniston (Cake, best actress), David Oyelowo (Selma, best actor), Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, best actor), Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel, best actor), Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, »

The Nominations For The 87th Annual Academy Awards

15 January 2015 6:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has just finished announcing their nominees for the 87th Annual Academy Awards, with Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel leading the way with nine nominations apiece, followed by The Imitation Game with eight. As usual, there were plenty of surprises to be found this morning, so let’s take a look at a few:

Selma ended up not making as grand a showing as many thought it would, nabbing only two nominations (Best Picture and Best Original Song). In a shocking turn of events, Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl has been snubbed from Best Adapted Screenplay after being the leader throughout awards season, making it a wide-open category. Bennett Miller made a completely surprising appearance in Best Director for Foxcatcher, while Steve Carell managed to squeeze into the incredibly crowded Best Actor category. Bradley Cooper has also managed to sneak into Best Actor for American Sniper. »

Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’ Eyes Ansel Elgort; Sony to Release (Exclusive)

13 January 2015 2:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Working Title Films has closed a deal with Tom Rothman’s TriStar and Mrc to co-finance Edgar Wright’s next pic, “Baby Driver,” with “The Fault in Our Stars” actor Ansel Elgort in early talks to star.

Sources confirm that Sony will distribute the movie through its deal with TriStar.

Wright, who recently dropped out of Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” will write and direct “Baby Driver,” with Working Title principals Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan producing along with Nira Park through her Big Talk Productions.

Plot follows a talented, young getaway driver who relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss, he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

“We’re delighted to be riding shotgun as Edgar Wright takes the wheel of his next film,” Rothman said. »

Watch: Golden Globe Winner Eddie Redmayne & Felicity Jones Reveal Terrors Filming 'Theory of Everything'

12 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Working Title producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are Oscar perennials ("Les Mis," "Atonement," "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy," "Anna Karenina"). And they and their distributor, Universal's Focus Features, know they have a robust awards contender in "The Theory of Everything," the moving $18-million love story of Stephen and Jane Hawking, played by Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. Both are in the Oscar race, along with the film's director James Marsh (Oscar-winning doc "Man on Wire," "Shadow Dancer") and New Zealand-born screenwriter and Hawking obsessive Anthony McCarten, who nurtured for many years his adaptation of Jane Hawking's memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen Hawking."  I interviewed Redmayne and Jones in Toronto right after their movie's rousing debut (video below).

Nominations Announced For 2015 BAFTA Awards

9 January 2015 12:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has just finished announcing their nominations for best achievement in film for 2014, with Wes Anderson’s quirky comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel leading the pack with 11 nominations. Not far behind are Birdman and The Theory of Everything with ten nods apiece. All three films have earned nods in many of the same top categories, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, and in their respective Best Screenplay categories.

Some may find it surprising that the most lauded film of the year, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, only made a showing with five nominations, but they were all in top categories (Film, Director, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, and Original Screenplay). However, it is a little shocking that no nod for editing was included (and that’s with six nominees already in the category due to a tie), as this is usually considered a »
