Cut Snake Review [Tiff 2014]

5 September 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

To say an actor is the best part of a film is usually meant as praise for the strength of their performance, not direct commentary on the quality of that film. To say that Sullivan Stapleton is the best part of a movie is, as of now, a statement that’s cause for concern. The Australian beefcake is likely best known to North American audiences for his role as the sentient marble statue that took over for Gerard Butler in the recent, dismal 300 sequel, where pitting him against a deliriously engaged Eva Green shone a spotlight on Stapleton’s charisma vacuum. You could blame the script and direction just as well, but handsome musclemen looking to climb out of the action movie heap often prove themselves worthy by doing more with less.

Saying Stapleton is the best part of Cut Snake would be a slam, were it not for the »

Cut Snake | 2014 Tiff Review

5 September 2014 4:30 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Out of the Past: Ayres’ Neo-noir is a Pulpy Brood

With a little luck, Australian director Tony Ayres’ latest film, Cut Snake will evolve beyond the festival circuit, unlike his accomplished 2007 drama The Home Song Stories with Joan Chen, which still remains unavailable in the Us. A period piece neo-noir, Ayres and screenwriter Blake Ayshford take a familiar premise down a surprisingly knotty path that makes for an intriguing and apprehensively sweaty yarn.

It is Sydney, 1974, and Pommie (Sullivan Stapleton) has just been released from prison. He seems to be looking for someone, showing up on an old woman’s doorstep, looking for an old friend named Sparra (Alex Russell). His friend doesn’t live there anymore, but an underlying uneasiness about Pommie’s insistence convinces us he’s going to find out where he went. Sure enough, he’s next seen staking out Sparra’s new home right outside of Melbourne, »

If The Rock Is Black Adam, Who Could Possibly Play Shazam?

3 September 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was revealed today that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is officially playing Black Adam in the new Shazam film that DC and Warner Bros are prepping for release in the near future. After months of speculation and countless teases that had us speculating in one direction, Johnson sent it all crashing down with one click of the "send" button on his Twitter feed. (Seriously, man? You couldn't have tweeted this news at Comic Con?) Bombshell aside, this means it's time for us to go back to the drawing board and evaluate some new candidates for the position of the man with the strength of the gods! Submitted for your approval are five actors who could make an awesome Shazam to face off against Johnson's Black Adam. Gerard Butler Gerard Butler really hasn't gotten himself into the comic book game just yet. That is, if you discount his "graphic novel" adaptation »

8 Stars Toronto Could Do Without at Tiff

2 September 2014 2:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no secret that stars aren't always on their best behaviour at all times. After all, when the whole world worships you, it can pretty easily go straight to your head. It can make you believe that the same rules of etiquette (and even the law) don't apply to you. You're above it.

We've all heard whispers of Mariah's demands for white furniture, Beyonce's insistence on brand-new toilet seats and Britney's strict orders for Cheetos and cheeseburgers. But diva behavior isn't limited to divas. A handful of actors have infamously worn out their welcome on the Toronto Film Festival's red carpet with their diva antics and entitled behaviour. And hey, we're Canadian; that kind of attitude doesn't really fly at the film festival renowned for bringing stars and regular folks together to bask in a mutual love of cinema.

While most stars are nothing but gracious at Tiff, there are a few whose ridiculous demands, »

Charlie Hunnam Set for 'King Arthur', Rumored for 'Escape from New York' Remake

1 September 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Charlie Hunnam is about to be seen in the final season of "Sons of Anarchy" on FX and after that it will likely be a long stream of movies and the schedule is starting to fill up. He was recently named the title star of Guy Ritchie's Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, he will almost certainly be back for Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim sequel and now he's rumored to be the top contender to play Snake Plissken in the remake of John Carpenter's Escape from New York alongside a couple others still in the mix. Hunnam as well as Dan Stevens ("Downton Abbey", The Guest) and Jon Bernthal (Fury, "The Walking Dead") are reported to be the top three choices for the lead role, looking to pick up after Kurt Russell as Plissken, a convicted bank robber in a crime-riddled New York City-turned-maximum security prison, coerced »

One Of These 3 Actors Could Be The Escape From New York Remake's Snake Plissken

31 August 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was more than seven years ago that we first learned Hollywood was planning a remake of John Carpenter's classic action film Escape From New York, and while we've heard regular updates over the years, the reality is that the project has never been able to budge out of development hell. Instead, the proposed movie has been kept alive by the occasional tidbit or casting rumor that reminds us all that executives are still working hard to get the thing off the ground. We've heard various names like Gerard Butler, Jeremy Renner, Jason Statham, Tom Hardy and more suggested for the lead role of Snake Plissken, but nothing has ever actually solidified. One could imagine any of those stars still being considered for Escape From New York, but now the rumor mill has generated three new names now seen as contenders. This story comes to us from the folks »

Plissken Gets A Posse For ‘Escape From New York’…?

31 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It seems just one badass isn’t enough to break into a futuristic city-turned-prison. Producer Joel Silver is looking to put a team together to rescue the President for the long-gestating remake of Escape From New York. John Carpenter’s original saw one-eyed mercenary Snake Plissken drafted involuntarily by authorities to prise the leader of the free world from the clutches of maniacs who were holding him hostage after his plane crashed in Manhattan. Set in the dizzying futurescape of 1997, the movie showcased Kurt Russell as Snake, doing his best Clint Eastwood impression.

Reportedly inspired by the success of Avengers Assemble and other comic book blockbusters with ensemble casts, Silver will take the focus off a lone antihero and form a posse. This will feature beefed-up versions of characters Cabbie and Brain, alongside fresh creations Mina (a journalist) and Gareth (a security guard). Yes that’s right. There’s going »

‘Chelsea Lately’ Hits 2-Year High in Sendoff; ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Finale Tops in Target Demos

27 August 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Chelsea Handler said goodbye to E! on Tuesday night with a star-studded hourlong sendoff that drew the show’s largest audience in a couple of years.

According to Nielsen estimates, “Chelsea Lately” averaged 1.003 million viewers, including 498,000 adults 18-49 — more than 60% higher than the show’s averages for its final full week (598,000 overall, including about 300,000 in the demo).

The latenight show, whose ratings have tailed off in recent years, hadn’t drawn this many viewers since the spring of 2012. And it’s the show’s largest young-adult tune-in in more than a year.

Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, Miley Cyrus Gwen Stefani and Gerard Butler were among the many celebrities for the final “Chelsea Lately.” Handler announced in June that she would be leaving the E! show after seven years to create a latenight program for Netflix.

Elsewhere on the cable ratings front Tuesday, ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” may be »

Who Ruled Chelsea Handler's Goodbye Song?

27 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The final episode of "Chelsea Lately" on E! served mainly as a reminder that, no, Ms. Handler isn't actually going away. The "My Horizontal Life" author will be headed to Netflix for her next talk show venture, but she still splurged on a fantastic sendoff special that culminated in a tremendous "We are the World" type mega-song with tons and tons of guest-stars. Look around in that crowd. Our eyes detect Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, Gerard Butler, Diablo Cody, Melissa McCarthy, Miley Cyrus, Joel McHale, and Tim Allen. And then a hundred or so others. But who ruled this star-studded goodbye? We picked the top five contributors. 5. Tim Gunn Even though the "Project Runway" guru spoke-sang his contribution, it was still tuneful and adorable. He's like a gay Yul Brynner up there. 4. Marlee Matlin Marlee Matlin was S-e-l-l-i-n-g that Asl translation at the right-hand corner of the screen. Pure ebullience from start to finish. »

Ellen DeGeneres, Gwen Stefani, more say goodbye to 'Chelsea Lately'

Ellen DeGeneres never appeared on Chelsea Lately during the show’s seven-year run, so she took the series finale as an opportunity to ask host Chelsea Handler why—while Handler was showering.

“Is it because I’m a lesbian?” DeGeneres asks a completely naked Handler, who then acts like she had no idea DeGeneres is gay. “I thought you were married to Ryan Seacrest,” Handler replies before claiming she herself is a lesbian. “I live with a lesbian, actually, a confirmed lesbian. We have two dogs.” The argument continues until Handler insists she’s totally cool with being in a »

After seven years on E!, last night was the final episode of Chelsea Lately.
