Casting rumors that never came true -- and would have changed everything

13 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In some parallel universe somewhere, Harrison Ford isn't a big screen legend, Bryan Cranston is still known as the dad from "Malcolm in the Middle," Emily Browning is a household name, and Batman used to date Buffy. Casting for movies and TV shows can be a tricky business, but when the right performer is picked to play the right role, magic can occur. It's interesting to note however just how many of those magic combinations almost never existed, with many iconic roles nearly going to other stars (or potential stars) We've dug up eleven of the juiciest TV and film casting rumors from the recent years that never came true.  See which stars almost played Batman, James Bond, Bella Swan, Neo, and more below: »

Godzilla And M.U.T.O. Classified Files Released

11 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

    Godzilla is a 2014 American science fiction monster film directed by Gareth Edwards. It is a reboot of the Godzilla film franchise and retells the origins of Godzilla in contemporary times as a "terrifying force of nature". The film is set in the present day, fifteen years after the unearthing of two chrysalises in a mine in the Philippines. From the pods come two giant radiation-eating creatures, known as "MUTOs", which cause great damage in Japan, Hawaii and the western United States. Their awakening also stirs a much larger, destructive, ancient alpha predator known as "Godzilla", whose existence has been kept secret by the U.S. government since 1954. It stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn, and Bryan Cranston. The screenplay is credited to Max Borenstein but includes contributions from David Callaham, David S. Goyer, Drew Pearce, and Frank Darabont. »

Wait, You’re Saying the Gareth Edwards Godzilla Wasn’t Perfect?

11 September 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Gareth Edwards’ “Godzilla” reboot made a bazillion dollars (or something like that), so it’s gotta be pretty good, right? Apparently while it is admittedly pretty good, it’s not perfect, and the folks at Honest Trailers have a couple of bones (or is that MUTOs?) to pick with the Big G. Let’s see what those crazy kids have to say, shall we? (Obviously it goes without saying, right? Massive Spoilers here if you haven’t seen the movie yet.) I get the whole Bryan Cranston thing. And the whole “Wait, when is Godzilla showing up” thing. I don’t really count footage of his fins swimming around the ocean as an appearance, by the way. Plus, the MUTOs were kind of lame. Couldn’t Godzilla have fought cooler looking monsters? The whole Godzilla history was also really, well, stupid. Dude just shows up to fight after half a century? »

Watch the Honest Trailer for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla

10 September 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While grossing over $520million at the worldwide box office, the prevailing opinion of Gareth EdwardsGodzilla remake was decidedly mixed. Some enjoyed the revamped version of the legendary monster, with it’s massive action and awesome CGI, while others were underwhelmed by both the lack of Godzilla screen time, and by some of the human characters including Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s decidedly underwhelming leading man over, say, more Bryan Cranston.

Now, in traditional fashion, the guys and girls over at Screen Junkies have given the summer blockbuster has been given the Honest Trailer treatment, which as always is hilarious and truthful. Seriously, 11 minutes of Godzilla? Even we didn’t think it was that low. You can enjoy the video for yourself below, and be sure leave your comments about this year’s reboot…

Godzilla is released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 27th in the UK.

Honest Trailers concedes 'Godzilla' 2014 is 'The good one' but that isn't saying much

10 September 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Godzilla" was one of the most anticipated movies of 2014. And I will stand by my assessment that it was a fantastic monster movie…wrapped in a terrible human movie. The guys over at Screen Junkies apparently had a lot of the same qualms I did. Would this Bryan Cranston bait-and-switch action movie have done as well if it'd had this honest trailer? The world will never know. [Via Screen Junkies] »

Honest Trailer for Godzilla

9 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Even though Godzilla was hardly in the movie, and Bryan Cranston wasn't in it as long as we hoped, I still thought Godzilla was a great movie that provided fun entertainment. I like how director Gareth Edwards handled the story. Screen Junkies has delivered an Honest Trailer for the film that does a funny job of tearing it apart though! Even if you liked the movie you can't really argue with the points they make. Enjoy!

8 September 2014 4:14 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

How do actors create characters? Director Jason Reitman probes the question each year with his Film Independent at Lacma Live Read series. He will kick off the Fall season with a staging of "American Beauty." The iconic Oscar-winning screenplay from writer Alan Ball will be performed on Thursday, October 16, with a yet-to-be-announced set of actors.  It's a hot ticket, and likely to sell out immediately. Film Independent staged a reading of "American Beauty" back at 2012's Tiff, with Bryan Cranston in the role of Lester Burnham (originally Kevin Spacey), Christina Hendricks as his pent-up wife Carolyn (Annette Bening), Mae Whitman as willful daughter Jane (Thora Birch) and Adam Driver as creepy-sensitive neighbor Ricky Fitts (Wes Bentley). Who will it be this year? Check out new poster art Little Rock-based artist Matt Owen, below. Jason Reitman's "Men, Women and Children" just played Tiff and opens limited on October 17. Meanwhile, »

Marvel's Agents of Shield

The first photo is out of British actor Nick Blood as Agent Lance Hunter in the upcoming second season of ABC's "Marvel's Agents of Shield". Describing the character, executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen says: "Now that S.H.I.E.L.D. has fallen, Coulson has to look outside of the organization for help, and make uneasy alliances with people like Lance Hunter. Hunter is a mercenary, in it for the money, not the cause. Whether his allegiance is to anyone but himself is still in question." [Source: Et Online]

How Amblin TV’s Success Led Spielberg to His New DreamWorks CEO

4 September 2014 10:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV is the little engine that could, a tiny operation that has almost as many shows on the air as it has full-time employees.

Amblin’s success at TNT in particular led Spielberg to recruit Michael Wright, who just left his post as head of programming for TNT, TBS and TCM, to replace Stacey Snider as DreamWorks’ CEO.

See Also: Michael Wright Named CEO of DreamWorks

Wright is an unconventional choice, given his lack of film experience, but Spielberg’s bet on the TV vet is a sign of how much Wright impressed the DreamWorks mogul in working with him over the years on various DreamWorks TV/Amblin TV projects. Wright’s championing of DreamWorks TV’s 2005 epic Western miniseries “Into the West” was a bonding moment for the exec with Spielberg and his TV team.

Despite his background, however, Wright’s focus at DreamWorks will »

Vscore: Emmys Boost Winners’ Social Media Power

3 September 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The social media buzz triggered by the recent Emmy Awards  provided a noticeable bump to the Vscore rankings of some of TV’s biggest winners for the night.

Vscore is Variety’s method of analyzing the star power for individual celebrities. Over 17,000 currently working actors are assigned a score from 0-100 using a weighted combination of multiple factors, including box office and television ratings performance, award nominations and wins, social media mentions (positive, negative or neutral), and upcoming film or television projects.

The Emmys in particular caused significant gains in Vscores for some stars, including an 11-point jump between Aug. 20 and Aug. 27 (the Emmys were on Aug. 25) for “Modern Family’s” Ty Burrell (Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy) from 77 to 88.

There were 10-point boosts for both “Breaking Bad’s” Anna Gunn (60 to 70 after winning Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama) and “The Good Wife’s” Julianna Margulies (71 to 81 after »

Toronto Film Fest Market Faces Challenges With Platform Changes, Global Politics

3 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sellers at this week’s Toronto Film Festival hope to ride the wave of Cannes and Sundance, which saw a healthy number of deals close earlier in the year. But by no means does that suggest that the movie business is in full recovery.

“The market is bigger than ever,” says Sony Pictures Classics co-president Michael Barker. “But I think the huge sales are fewer and farther between than they used to be. Films used to go for more money in the DVD heyday. What we’re all doing is finding ways to make up for the loss.”

The shakeup in home entertainment is a challenge facing film backers, but the tectonic political shifts roiling the world are also wreaking havoc on an industry that relies on foreign distribution sales. Relations between the U.S. and Russia are chilly, due to the annexation of Crimea, which has left film buyers »
