Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter at the Academy Awards Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter on the Oscars' Red Carpet Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter sported matching hairdos upon their arrival at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

New 'Love & Mercy' Poster is Set for '60s

24 April 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I prefer movie posters that are not just pictures of the actors. A poster never makes me want to see a movie, but a well designed poster may make me want to purchase a print of it. I like a bit of artistic ambition in them. The new poster for the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy decides to embrace the 1960s to make a poster that certainly pops. I probably won't buy a print, but at least somebody put some effort into the poster, which you can check out below. The poster does make it seem like the whole movie takes place in the '60s, which it doesn't. Paul Dano and John Cusack split the duties of playing the Beach Boys legend in two different areas of his life. I saw the film at SXSW this year, and greatly enjoyed it. So, more importantly than admiring the poster, go »

New Projects: ‘Robin Hood’, ‘Battle of the Sexes’, and ‘Russ and Roger Go Beyond’

23 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There must be something fashionable to the idea right now of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. Hollywood now has four Robin Hood movies in production, more than anyone really needs, perhaps even the poor. Tuesday Deadline reported that Warner Bros. had “quietly” put a new Robin Hood movie into production, this one being developed by the script writer for the upcoming Aquaman movie Will Beall. Deadline counts three others for it to storm the castle with: a family friendly swashbuckler from Disney called Nottingham & Hood, a Batman Begins style origin story aptly titled Robin Hood: Origins, and one from Sony that’s described as “Fast & Furious meets Mission: Impossible style reinvention of the tale.” With those four incredibly original ideas, anyone think this is the rich stealing from the poor?

Robin Hood isn’t the only Hollywood property currently with competing projects. A few weeks back, »

An international trailer has been released for director Mark Osborne’s The Little Prince, an animated adaption of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic children’s novel. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Rediscover one of the most beloved stories of all time. From Mark Osborne, Academy Award® nominated director of Kung Fu Panda, comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl (Mackenzie Foy), who’s being prepared by her mother (Rachel McAdams) for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator (Jeff Bridges).

Emma Stone and Steve Carell to star in Battle of the Sexes

22 April 2015 2:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline has reported that Fox Searchlight has set a start date on Battle of the Sexes, based on the gender-battle tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs.

Little Miss Sunshine directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris will helm the project, while Emma Stone (Birdman) and Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) are set to play King and Riggs respectively. Simon Beaufoy, Oscar winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire has written the script, which is being co-produced by Danny Boyle (127 Hours).

The race to get the film out first will be crucial, as two other rival projects are set to go into production this year as well: Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti are playing King and Riggs in a HBO and Playtone production, while Will Ferrell is still circling Match Maker, which is being co-produced by his own Gary Sanchez Productions.

The story of King and Riggs became a zeitgeist event back in 1973, when the 29-year old No. »

New ‘Little Prince’ trailer previews a wonderfully imaginative addition to Cannes

21 April 2015 4:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Need a little animation fix between your Cannes films? It seems like this could be the answer.

The new, international trailer for The Little Prince was released on Monday and it offers a preview at one of the year’s more imaginative animated films. The movie is set to premiere out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival.

Featuring the voice talents of Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, James Franco, Marion Cotillard, Jeff Bridges, Benicio Del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, and Mackenzie Foy, The Little Prince follows the story of a pilot crashes in the desert and meets a little boy from a distant planet. The story was first published in 1943 by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

The latest trailer dives more into the story than the first one and seems to illustrate the imagination that is going into this adaptation. It seems to be blending both digital CGI with some other animation styles such as stop-motion, »

Watch International English-Language Trailer For The Little Prince

21 April 2015 2:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the most well-loved children’s stories of all-time is bound for the big screen. The latest adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella The Little Prince hails from King Fu Panda helmer Mark Osborne, who takes a few liberties with the popular source material for his vision. But to be frank, with trailers this captivating and visually adventurous, it’s unlikely anyone will have cause for complaint.

The Little Prince tells the story of an Aviator whose plane crashes in the desert, which is where he meets the titular prince from an asteroid-sized planet whose day trip to Earth is part of his exploration of the galaxy. One of those aforementioned changes tying together the movie is a wraparound story that’s made apparent in this new preview. Featuring a young girl and her next-door neighbor, it’s a slight adjustment that shouldn’t sully the gloriousness of the stop-motion animation on display. »

Emma Stone, Steve Carell Engage In Battle Of The Sexes

21 April 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Crazy, Stupid, Love, Match? Emma Stone and Steve Carell are attached to star in Fox Searchlight’s Battle of the Sexes, which will portray the famed match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Stone will play King, the No. 2 ranked female tennis player in 1973 when she, at 29, was challenged by and bested 55-year-old Wimbledon great Riggs (Carell), who came out of retirement for the match.

Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the team behind Little Miss Sunshine, will direct from a long-gestating script by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire). The scribe has been working with King on the screenplay (Riggs passed away in 1995), which is expected to be comedic but still address important political issues. Danny Boyle will produce.

This is one of three competing projects about the match between King and Riggs, though it’s currently predicted to be the first in front of cameras. HBO is working on an »

21 April 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

1970s tennis is soon going to have a Capote situation of its very own: According to Deadline, Emma Stone and Steve Carell have signed on to play Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in a Battle of the Sexes biopic for Fox Searchlight. That's not to be confused with HBO's own movie about King and Riggs, which will star Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti, or the upcoming comedy Match Maker, which will star Will Ferrell and a woman to be named later. How do you want your Bobby Riggs, America — affably off-kilter, sweatily grotesque, or shirtlessly silly? »

Stone, Carell Set For "Battle of the Sexes"

21 April 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Emma Stone and Steve Carell are set to star as tennis superstars Billie Jean King and Robert 'Bobby' Riggs in "Battle of the Sexes" for Fox Searchlight.

The story is said to focus on King's famous 'Battle of the Sexes' against 55-year-old retired former Wimbledon champion Riggs in 1973. Riggs claimed female tennis was inferior and challenged the then world No. 2 player King to a match.

She declined, but women's tennis top player Margaret Court accepted. Riggs beat her 6-2 6-1 thanks to his tricky use of drop shots and lobs, he then went on to taunt all female tennis players.

This prompted King to accept a lucrative financial offer to play Riggs in a nationally televised match that the promoters dubbed the "Battle of the Sexes" with a 90 million worldwide audience tuning in.

Having learned from Court's loss, King was prepared for Riggs' game and easily beat him 6–4 6–3 6–3. Some have »

Set as of Thursday to make its premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Out of Competition, a new international trailer for Mark Osbourne's (Kung Fu Panda) film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupery beloved children's book The Little Prince has arrived. While this isn't the first teaser for the film, it is the first time English-speaking audiences can see the American voice cast. And boy, did they go all out with this voice cast, with Jeff Bridges, Mackenzie Foy, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Albert Brooks, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Bud Cort, Rachel McAdams, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Giamatti lending their pipes to the animated picture. While it's hard to shake off The Lorax vibes created by a newly created child protagonist and her new old friend, there does seem to be more love and charm here than that film, not to mention how beautiful the animation is during the actual Little Prince moments. »

20 April 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood loves nothing more than pitting two projects against each other, and the latest is the true story about an oddball sports rivalry that captivated the nation. Earlier this year it was reported that Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti would topline HBO's movie based on the 1973 Battles Of The Sexes tennis match between the 29 year-old, number two-ranked Billie Jean King, and the retired loud-mouthed champ Bobby Riggs. Now, a much starrier version is moving forward fast. Fox Searchlight has rounded up "Crazy Stupid Love" co-stars Steve Carell and Emma Stone for "Battle Of The Sexes." This is the project that Danny Boyle once flirted with, and he's still on board to produce, with "Little Miss Sunshine" duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris now directing the script from "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours" scribe Simon Beaufoy. In short, this one has a ton of talent in front of and behind »
