Remembering the filmmaking talents of Leonard Nimoy

27 February 2015 1:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Leonard Nimoy will be remembered for many things. Foremost is creating an iconic character known the world over, but his contributions to the world of entertainment go far beyond what he achieved in front of the camera. He was also a writer, an artist and a director. As a filmmaker, he actually helmed two of the biggest hits of the 1980s, "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" and "Three Men and a Baby." If moviegoers should have any regrets for Nimoy it's that he only made a few more films after those blockbusters. But his legacy lives on in many ways. It certainly lives on with me. When you talk to most "Star Trek" fans, they are either of the age where they became fans of the franchise during its initial 60s run, when it was syndicated in the 70s or when it returned to television with "Star Trek: The Next Generation. »

Sundance Favorite 'Me & Earl & the Dying Girl' Set for July Release

24 February 2015 4:24 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Fox Searchlight has confirmed (via @ERCboxoffice) a release date for the upcoming indie sensation Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, which won both the Audience Award & Grand Jury Prize at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and won our hearts too. The film earned a top spot on our list of the Best of the Fest, as well as plenty of glowing reviews by the end of the festival. It's definitely going to find an audience outside of the fest, and Fox Searchlight is banking on its success. The studio has scheduled a limited release starting on July 1st, 2015 this summer, which is when they usually open one of their new Sundance gems. We'll be following this release closely as it's one of our favorites, too. In related release date news, Open Road Films has scheduled Oliver Stone's Snowden film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt for release starting Christmas Day, »

Sony Replaces Amy Pascal with Ex-Fox Exec Tom Rothman

24 February 2015 10:19 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman and CEO Michael Lynton has wasted no time in picking a high-powered replacement for departing Amy Pascal. Ex-Fox executive Tom Rothman is now the next Chairman of Spe’s Motion Picture Group. After Rothman left Fox Filmed Entertainment, where he ran the movie studio for over a decade (2000-2012) with current chairman Jim Gianopulos, Pascal brought him to Sony as Chairman of TriStar Productions in late 2013; where he has already assembled an impressive slate. Bob Zemeckis's feature on Philippe Petit, "The Walk," starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is heading for awards season release. Rothman will now be charged with managing some heavy hitter talent: not only Pascal, (who he worked with in the late 80s at Columbia), who will be producing Paul Feig's women-targeted "Ghostbusters" reboot and the latest "Spider-Man" in league with Marvel, but ex-Warner Bros. »

We Don’t Belong Together: The (500) Days of Summer Color Palette Theory

24 February 2015 6:31 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

To preface, I’ve seen 500 Days of Summer maybe five or six times now and love everything about it. However, I’ve always been somewhat confused as to why Summer (Zooey Deschanel) goes off and marries someone else at the end of the film. I believe it is meant to be somewhat ambiguous as we see this movie from Tom’s (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) perspective, and as result, we the audience, are meant to relate to his confusion and surprise by Summer’s change of heart and mind. My brother and I watched it again, and this time I searched for clues and foreshadowing early on as to why Summer doesn’t stick around. Here’s my theory, based on the film’s use of colors. The film is rich in them. Scenes are often dominantly one color, with many shades of that color surrounding it. Tom is represented by brown/auburn and neighboring shades. Here »

Nicolas Cage Joins Edward Snowden Biopic

24 February 2015 1:52 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Cathleen Allison/AP

An appearance from Nicolas Cage in a good film now seems as common as a unicorn sighting or finding a Freddo that’s still only 10p. Whilst we still await the other two occurrences with great anticipation, Deadline have revealed that Cage will be making a potential comeback, courtesy of the Edward Snowden biopic from Oliver Stone which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Based on Luke Harding’s book ’The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man’ and ‘Time of the Octopus’ by Anatoly Kucherena, Snowden will tell the story of the U.S. whistleblower who sought asylum in Russia after leaking classified files from the Nsa to the media in 2013. Levitt is set to star as the titular secret-spiller, whilst Cage is down to play a former U.S. Intelligence official.

The Oscar winning star (yeah, that happened once) is just the recent »

Nicolas Cage joins Oliver Stone’s Snowden film

23 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nicolas Cage is a Us intelligence officer in the new Oliver Stone film on Edward Snowden. Joseph Gordon-Levitt also stars.

Nicolas Cage has not been in a strong film for a while, yet given the subject matter of his newest project, this is hopefully about to change. Indeed, Cage has been cast in the new Oliver Stone film, Snowden.

On the heels of Edward Snowden’s story striking Oscar gold last night, when Citizenfour took home the statuette for Best Documentary Feature, Stone’s narrative account on the man is taking increasing shape.

Cage has been cast in the role of a former Us intelligence officer that becomes entangled in the Snowden case. This further builds an impressive cast that is led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the titular role of the man who leaked classified information about Nsa wiretapping citizens. The ensemble also includes Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, »

Off the Carpet: Unexpected virtue at the 87th Oscars

23 February 2015 1:51 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The fact is I think Alan Sepinwall's review said it perfectly, right there in the headline, really. The 87th Oscars was a memorable event despite itself. A number of touching speeches and human moments on the Dolby Theater stage mostly mitigated some tone deaf writing, late-night-level jokes and an overall flatly produced show that started off so promisingly with an inspired opening number. It was, within that, a rather fitting and organic end to an unusual film awards season. And of course it ended on a note of PC outrage. Who would expect less in this day and age? A number of socio-political statements were made by the evening's winners and none of them rang a false note. It was like the sincerity of significance was clawing past the show's need to go viral or something (thematically interesting to me given what's being studied in the Best Picture victor). Common »

23 February 2015 1:50 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It may be lost on an entire generation of moviegoers, but there actually was a time when Nicolas Cage was a big deal in the circles of artsy awards-circuit-friendly dramas. No.seriously, he even won an Oscar!

Cage has been cast in Oliver Stone.s upcoming biopic of the headline-making Nsa whistleblower, Edward Snowden in which Joseph Gordon-Levitt will star as the central figure.
