Everyone Says I Love Woody – What Romantic Comedies Owe to Mr. Allen

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

Woody Allen’s back catalogue casts a long shadow across contemporary romantic comedy. His tropes and trademarks are as ingrained into the collective sense memory as mother’s perfume. At the first tremble of a clarinet, mutter about mortality or meander across a Manhattan neighbourhood, we inhale the nostalgia like Bisto kids. And arguably we’d never have met Harry and Sally, walked the Sidewalks of New York or dined alongside Friends with Money without his influence.

The Longest Week is peppered with Woody base notes. Over the course of seven days, Conrad (Jason Bateman) has been stripped of the safety net of his wealth and the cushion of his ego, moved in with his cynical best friend (Billy Crudup) and accidentally fallen in love with his girl (Olivia Wilde). His eventual dilemma – to be or not to be a better man – is as timeless as Annie Hall.

Now, to coincide with its DVD release, »

Movie Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

29 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Perhaps it was comic book movie fatigue; perhaps it was sequel fatigue; perhaps it was a feeling of cash grabbing now that comic book films are the money making machines they are; or perhaps it was the fact that Robert Rodriguez’ last film was utter trash, but for whatever reason I was not looking forward to Sin City: A Dame to Kill for. Then I re-watched the first movie again (for the first time many years) in preparation for »

Marv, Sin City 2, and the end of a movie franchise?

29 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Did Sin City: A Dame To Kill For rely too much on Mickey Rourke's character, Marv? Robert offers his spoiler-filled view...

Nb: This article contains spoilers for Sin City and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Many film sequels latch onto one character who captures audiences’ imaginations, then mould subsequent stories around that character. There’s no doubt that the Pirates Of The Caribbean series existed because of Captain Jack Sparrow’s popularity, and audience’s desires to see more of the kooky rogue. Gollum’s popularity following The Two Towers surely had an effect in the editing room on Return Of The King, where he cemented himself as one of the most quotable and imitable characters of the decade.  

When this happens, producers respond, and the character often becomes elevated to a mascot - or even a reason to make subsequent films. They can occasionally end up hogging the posters, »

Marvel Getting Extremely Close To Signing Joaquin Phoenix As Doctor Strange

28 August 2014 6:46 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange has had a lot of names rumored to be in contention for the titular role. In fact, it ranks up there with most rumored names for any comic hero in recent memory. We've seen everyone from Jon Hamm to Jack Huston suggested for the role, with Tom Hardy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and even Daniel Radcliffe being whispered in lower tones as contenders in between. Out of all the names rumored in contention for the role, though, it looks like it all comes down to the most interesting name mentioned in the pack: Joaquin Phoenix. At least that's what Collider is running with, as they are claiming exclusive knowledge that after almost a month of radio silence, Phoenix is in "final negotiations" to play the gifted neurosurgeon turned practitioner of the magical arts known as Doctor Strange. According to sources, the reasoning for the delay »

20 Moments That Will Define Upcoming Marvel Movies

28 August 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures

Movies based on characters from Marvel’s rich history of comic books are extremely popular right now – indeed they include some of the most popular offerings in cinematic history, with the likes of Iron Man 3 and the Avengers movie all grossing well over $1 billion worldwide and pretty much every movie earning well in to the hundreds of millions.

These movies are currently coming out of three different studios; The Marvel Cinematic Universe movies are made by Marvel themselves, the Amazing Spider-Man franchise is produced by Sony and the X-Men (and soon to be Fantastic Four) movies are produced by Fox.

All three franchises are in full flow and there are a boatload of new movies in the pipeline that we can’t wait to see. The movies in question all look set to have some popular existing characters, some great new characters, some explosive action and some »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Could Cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII Before Larger Role in VIII & IX?

27 August 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Today brings another casting rumor for the upcoming Star Wars films, that's interesting in it ties into other rumors for the last two "numbered" films in the sequel trilogy.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a hot commodity actor, has been rumored to appear as a central(ish) character in Star Wars: Episode VIII and IX, but the newest rumor hitting the webs right now is that he'll also have a cameo appearance in Episode VII.  Come inside for all the details and our thoughts on it!

Pretty much all eyes are firmly placed on Star Wars: Episode VII right now, but that doesn't mean rumors about the next two numbered films haven't been popping up either.  One of the early rumors has put Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a leading member in Episode VIII and IX.  The rumor has been popping up here and there, even before Rian Johnson was brought on board to direct those films. »

27 August 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This Summer marked the five-year anniversary of the release of (500) Days of Summer, but time hasn't lessened our love for this movie. It's a romantic comedy without the conventional happy ending, and it made us all sit up and realize that Joseph Gordon-Levitt might be the big screen's most adorable leading man. To celebrate the movie, we're looking back at the reasons we all can't get over this movie the way Tom just can't get over Summer. (Note: this is best read with "Sweet Disposition" playing.) »

Synopsis:

Three more stories from the vaults of Sin City as some of its twisted citizens get in too deep.

The sequel to Sin City has been a long time coming and in the wake of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, part of me wonders if it’s been too long. The stories we get on this adventure are the titular A Dame to Kill For, Nancy’s Last Dance, Just Another Saturday Night and The Long Bad Night. Each of the stories in themselves are interesting and A Dame To Kill For is clearly the »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt working on Sandman movie script with Neil Gaiman

27 August 2014 3:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been working with Neil Gaiman on the Sandman screenplay.

The actor offered an update on the project, revealing that he has been working alongside the acclaimed comics creator.

"Right now we're working on a script. It's me and [David S] Goyer and the screenwriter and Neil Gaiman, as well as the good folks at DC and Warner Bros," he told Moviefone.

"It's a really cool team of people. It's a lot of the same people who worked on the [Christopher] Nolan Batman movies. It's really exciting.

"There's not a script yet. We're still kind of working it out because it's such a complicated adaptation because Sandman wasn't written as novels.

"Sin City was written as a novel. Sandman is 75 episodic issues. There's a reason people have been trying and failing to adapt Sandman for the past 20 years."

Gordon-Levitt can currently be seen in another comic book adaptation, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. »

Box Office Democracy: “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”

25 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I was remarking to a friend a few weeks back that I was afraid that I had grown out of Sin City, that the franchise I had loved so much as a teenager/young adult was just beneath me now.  I don’t think that’s it though, not entirely, popular culture itself seems to have absorbed the things it likes from Sin City and moved on.  All that’s left is a movie that feels just as old and tired as the original film felt new and fresh nine years ago.

Before I go any further I have to shower praise on Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a man who seems to have been born to play noir leads.  While this is no secret to anyone who saw his dynamite performance in Brick it’s a treat to watch him do this work and a crying shame that there aren’t more »

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

I feel like I should temper this review by letting you know that I have been very excited for this film since its announcement. The casting announcements only heightened my excitement to the point that when I saw that my local cinema was doing a double screening of the original I leapt at the opportunity. I’ll say it now. I loved this film.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For gives the audience a great mix of old »

Meet The Murderous Men Of ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

25 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For is a film that has been many years in the making. Critics and audiences alike went mad for Sin City when it was released way back in 2005. It had all the ingredients of a perfect film; it was gritty, violent, sexy and stylish. Finally back for round two, the film sees many familiar faces – as well as several new ones – once again inhabit the seedy world.

Yesterday we brought you a run down on all the lovely ladies that take up residence within the walls of the fictitious Basin City. Today we delve into the lives of the crooked criminals and valiant vigilantes that have both the X and Y chromosomes. The men of Sin City range from the good, to the bad, to the seriously demented, with the likes of Mickey Rourke, Jeremy Piven, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dennis Haysbert all on  board. »

​Box Office: Why Did 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Tank?

25 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Judging by the pre-release hype, you'd think "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" was a long- and eagerly-awaited sequel, a comic book movie for connoisseurs, whose all-star cast, eye-popping visuals, and violent action would make it the summer's last blockbuster. Given that the original opened at $29.1 million in 2005 dollars, the sequel, with a price boost from 3D, was expected to debut at least in the high teens. Such an opening might be good enough for first place, with a tight race expected among "Sin City," lingering hits "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and fellow newcomer "If I Stay."

And yet, when the smoke cleared, the film premiered with just an estimated $6.5 million, opening way down in eighth place. The other movies all did about as well as predicted -- "Guardians," "Turtles," and "If I Stay" all drew around $17 million, with "Guardians" claiming a slight edge »
