Watch: New Beverly Cinema Doc 'Out of Print' Trailer About 35mm

23 July 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The New Beverly crowds are genuine, they're there just to love cinema." How do we save 35mm film? By cherishing it, archiving it, and reminding the world of its existence with screenings and events that herald the soon-to-be-long-lost-format. One of the latest documentaries about this technological evolution is titled Out of Print, a film two years in the making from New Beverly's Julia Marchese. The doc focuses on the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles and the many people who make it their home. She has interviews with people like Edgar Wright, Patton Oswalt, Rian Johnson, Joe Carnahan, Kevin Smith, Joe Dante and so many others. The first trailer is out and it's all about a love for cinema, its many joys, and repertory theaters. Here's the first trailer for Julia Marchese's documentary Out of Print, from YouTube (via SlashFilm): A documentary exploring the importance of revival cinema »

Frank Grillo confirms he's doing Death Wish remake

22 July 2014 2:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joe Carnahan's remake of Death Wish seems to be back on. Frank Grillo has an update...

News

Frank Grillo is currently riding high at the Us box office for the second time this summer, courtesy of The Purge: Anarchy. Having also popped up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier - ahead of appearances in more Marvel movies - he's busy, and enjoying well deserved success.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Grillo about The Purge: Anarchy, and you can read the full piece here.

In the course of that interview, he talked about working with director Joe Carnahan on The Grey. And he revealed that they're reteaming again for the long-mooted remake of Death Wish. "Carnahan and I became friends", he told us. "We’re going to do Death Wish together. Death Wish has an amazing script. That’s kind of tied up with Fox. He’s got a film called White Jazz, »

Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight Teases The "Gritty, 1970's New York Feel" Of Daredevil

21 July 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We know most of Daredevil's cast, but the story and tone are very much being kept a secret. Though he couldn't reveal too much about the series, Steven S. DeKnight was able to drop a few interesting tidbits of information at tonight's Guardians of the Galaxy premiere. The full interview can be watched in the video below, but perhaps the most revealing detail was what DeKnight had to say about Daredevil's tone. "We're going for a very gritty, 1970's New York feel. We love the idea of beauty in the decay of the city, and Hell's Kitchen being a place that is both horrible and beautiful at the same time. That's why Matt Murdock loves it so much and wants to protect it." That sounds a lot more Frank Miller than Mark Waid, and not too dissimilar to what Joe Carnahan had in store for the Man Without »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 21st 2014

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

This week annoyed by a loudmouth blogger of some repute, who declared anime for paedophiles and insulted more or less the whole of Japanese culture, I decided to watch Netflix original anime Knights of Sidonia. His comments have widely been circulated and condemned by many people and he’s just made himself look a fool, and all this just because Gus Van Sant might be directing a Death Note movie. I recognise that anime is not for everyone but still, by dismissing all of it you are missing out on an awful lot of classic work and influential stuff.

Knights of Sidonia has been billed as a Netflix original but it’s quite hard to imagine that they would have been involved in the production of something like this, it’s pretty far out there even for anime and its more likely that Netflix have done what they did with »

Joe Carnahan Says Five Against A Bullet Is Likely His Next Film; Might Cast a Younger Lead

16 July 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Joe Carnahan doesn’t mess around.  His movies range from gritty thrillers like Narc to big summer tentpoles like The A-Team to thoughtful, existential dramas like The Grey, and recently he’s been delving into television to great success with The Blacklist and the upcoming State of Affairs.  Though his latest feature film, a small-scale crazy actioner called Stretch, is currently looking for a distributor, we recently learned that Carnahan is lining up another feature project in Five Against a Bullet.  The Wild Bunch-esque story revolves around five bodyguards that are hired to protect a Mexican politician through a contentious election after his father is murdered by a drug cartel. At the TCA Press Tour, Christina interviewed Carnahan in anticipation of his upcoming drama series State of Affairs, and the director touched on Five Against the Bullet, revealing that it will probably be his next film.  Check out »

Brian Grazer Is Hustling to Keep Imagine Entertainment Relevant in Ever-Changing Hollywood

16 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s odd to see Brian Grazer chillin’.

But there he is — the frenetic mega-producer — lounging in his sprawling backyard in Santa Monica, Calif., overlooking the Riviera Country Club, munching on a breakfast of turkey bacon and eggs over easy, drinking fresh-pressed carrot juice with a touch of ginger.

Not surprisingly the zen moment quickly dissolves.

“Oh shit, can I text Mick Jagger back?” Grazer asks a reporter, suddenly bolting upright, his gold-and-white leather encased iPhone vibrating. The two are co-producing “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic that debuts Aug. 1. Jagger’s on tour in Europe, and they’ve missed a chance to talk. “He’s so polite and British,” Grazer confides. “You have to be like, ‘How are you this morning?’ and take a beat, and then get on with it.”

Grazer prides himself on deciphering what makes a person tick. He’s spent the past three decades peppering industry titans, »

Joe Carnahan Re-Cutting Stretch, Will Debut It At A Festival Later This Year

14 July 2014 6:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When a filmmaker as respected as Joe Carnahan makes a movie that never sees the light of day, it’s pretty big news, not to mention tremendously disappointing. But that’s just what happened with Stetch, The Grey director’s action-comedy about “a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back.”

Though the cast (including Patrick Wilson, Ed Helms, Chris PineJessica Alba, Brooklyn Dekker, James Badge Dale, Shaun Toub, Ray Liotta and David Hasselhoff) was impeccable, and all signs indicated that the film was going to be great, Universal was unwilling to sink $40 million into marketing Stretch. Why, you may ask? According to Carnahan himself, who spoke with Collider during the TCA Press Tour to promote his upcoming NBC series State of Affairs, it had to do with how Stretch was made, but he promises the film »

Exclusive: Director Joe Carnahan Talks Stretch; Is Re-Cutting the Film and Plans to Debut It at a Festival This Year

13 July 2014 8:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m a big Joe Carnahan fan.  I’ve enjoyed all of his movies, and his most recent, The Grey, was my favorite film of 2012.  I was eagerly anticipating his follow-up Stretch, which stars Patrick Wilson as “a down-on-his-luck chauffeur looking to relieve his debt by driving around a mysterious billionaire who drags him to hell and back.”  The cast for the low-budget film also includes Chris Pine, Ed Helms, Jessica Alba, Brooklyn Dekker, James Badge Dale, Shaun Toub, Ray Liotta, and David Hasselhoff.  So it was a bummer when Universal dropped the movie and it fell off the theatrical schedule this year.  Since then, we’ve been wondering when and how we’re going to see a movie that’s like “excessive 80’s R-rated action comedies,” according to Wilson. At the TCA Press Tour, Christina interviewed Carnahan (who was there for his upcoming drama series State of Affairs), and »

Katherine Heigl Addresses Rumors of Bad Behavior: ‘I Certainly Don’t See Myself as Being Difficult’

13 July 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“State of Affairs” star Katherine Heigl was asked to address speculation that she and her mother are “difficult to work with” at NBC’s Television Critics Assn. summer press tour presentation Sunday.

Seeming momentarily unsure how to answer, a flustered Heigl haltingly offered, “I certainly don’t see myself as being difficult. I would never intend to be difficult. I don’t think my mother sees herself as being difficult. I think it’s important to everybody to conduct themselves professionally and respectfully and kindly, so if I’ve ever disappointed somebody, it was never intentional.”

Showrunner Ed Bernero attempted to come to Heigl’s defense and answer the question in her stead, but the reporter insisted that Heigl respond.

The star once described Judd Apatow’s “Knocked Up” as “a little sexist” and criticized the movie’s portrayal of its female characters: “It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, »

Press Tour: Katherine Heigl on her 'difficult' reputation and coming back to TV

13 July 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's no secret Katherine Heigl has a reputation for being "difficult." So of course the question came up at the Television Critics Association press tour session for her upcoming NBC drama "State of Affairs." That does not mean Heigl was ready for it. To be fair, the specific question she had to field involved quite a few different ideas at once. Among them: giving her the opportunity to "clear up" some recent statements about her career, whether or not she thinks her gender plays a role in the criticism she's received, why she chose this role to return to TV and the perception that she and her mother and manager, Nancy Heigl (an executive producer on "State of Affairs"), are "difficult" to work with. Maybe it was the directness of the question, or maybe it was just because she knows this is tricky territory to tackle (no matter how she answers, »

Potential Powerhouse – How to Fix Pride and Glory

13 July 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One doesn’t have to be an analyst or expert in all things cinema to note the decline of certain genres and niches within the film-making machine. While comic-book movies and superhero franchises have risen to soaring heights over the last fifteen years, we have seen a dramatic drop in other, classic outputs, seemingly to make way. A perfect example of this would be the procedural crime thriller, tales of murder investigation and corruption, a hallmark of hard boiled fiction from the 1970′s onwards that by now have tailed off. It says a lot that the most recent archetypal release from said field was last year’s Broken City, a box office and critical failure from highly rated scribe Stephen Knight. A production line that once gave us the likes of Chinatown, Serpico and Seven is now decrepit and seemingly unfit for purpose.

Not only is this genre starved, it »

Exclusive Interview With Frank Grillo On The Purge: Anarchy

8 July 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While not every actor has the good fortune of rising to stardom while nearing his 50s, that’s what makes Frank Grillo’s rocketing Hollywood stock so intriguing – in a good way. This workhorse of a man has been around since 1993, yet it wasn’t until recently that Grillo’s name became more commonplace around big-budget mainstream blockbusters. While most of you probably know him as Brock Rumlow in this year’s insanely successful Marvel endeavor, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he’s already making himself known in another growing franchise by leading The Purge: Anarchy. It appears that comic book films are treating our star right – but will the horror genre be as friendly?

Sitting down with Frank in Coney Island one gloomy Friday afternoon, I got to pick the actor’s brain on all things righteous and badass. Branching out from typical questions about starring in a horror sequel, »

Take Me To The Pilots '14: NBC's 'State of Affairs'

6 July 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "State of Affairs" (NBC) The Pitch: "Megan Boone is everybody's favorite part of 'Blacklist,' right?" "Ummm..." "So let's do something with the political intrigue of 'Blacklist' but without Red, Ok?" "Ummm..." "Katherine Heigl?" "Sold." Quick Response: I never bought into the Katherine Heigl backlash. I thought she was great on "Grey's Anatomy" and totally earned her Emmy. I thought she was a valuable part of the "Knocked Up" machine, plus I skipped every movie she's made since, which I'm sure helps. And Heigl is a solid contributor to the part of "State of Affairs" that I would watch on a weekly basis. It just happens she's the centerpiece of the part of "State of Affairs" I'd prefer not to watch again. It's probably not Heigl's fault that I don't care about the mystery of what happened to her deceased fiancé, who was the President's (Alfre Woodard) son. It's »

Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura Talks Transformers: Age Of Extinction, Dinobots, What Mark Wahlberg Added to the Story, Sequels, and More

4 July 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The day after the world premiere of Transformers: Age of Extinction in Hong Kong, I landed an awesome extended video interview with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.  Since the franchise launched in 2007, he's produced all the films along with projects like G.I. Joe, Red, Side Effects,Stardust, and many more.  While we already posted what he had to say about Joe Carnahan's Five Against a Bullet, G.I. Joe 3, David S. Goyer's The Breach, the possibility of a Transformers/G.I. Joe crossover movie, and the Dead Rising digital series, it's finally time for what he had to say about making Age of Extinction. During the interview he talked about how the story came together for the film, how and why they finally brought in the dinobots, the way they work with Hasbro, how breaking the story led to introducing a new kind of character to the Transformers movie mythology, »

The Grey's Joe Carnahan To Write And Direct Badass Action Movie Five Against A Bullet

26 June 2014 10:11 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sometimes in this world of constant sequels, remakes and cartoons, you wish some studio would just drop everything and really bring it with some original content. Just make a movie with attitude, style, violence and a point of view. It might end up being a B-movie, sure, but in this day and age one begs for something straightforward and unpretentious, with mild goals that have nothing to do with a franchise, a toy, or some dumb brand. Joe Carnahan and Sony seem to understand that there is an unfortunate lack of projects like these in modern Hollywood and seek to rectify it. Are you ready for Five Against A Bullet? The Wrap reports that Joe Carnahan and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura are teaming up for Five Against A Bullet, an original idea to be written and directed by Carnahan. The story follows five bodyguards hired by a Mexican politician for »

Joe Carnahan Will Direct Five Against A Bullet for Sony Pictures

26 June 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A-Team director Joe Carnahan is set to rewrite and direct a new action movie for Sony Pictures called Five Against A Bullet. According to THR, the project has kind of been sitting around gathering dust for several years, and during that time several people have come on and off the project. Bruce Willis was one actor that was looking to star in the picture, but it's not clear on if it's something he'd still be interested in doing. 

The story centers on a "Mexican politician who, after his father is killed by a drug cartel, hires the five best bodyguards from around the world to protect him through a contentious election."

This sounds like the perfect project for Carnahan to develop. His energetic directing style would translate perfectly to a story like this. The other films he has directed include Narc, Smokin’ Aces, and The Grey.  »
