A Look at Al Capone in the Movies

19 June 2017 7:42 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Al Capone is America’s best known gangster and the single greatest symbol of the collapse of law and order in the United States during the 1920s Prohibition era. Capone had a leading role in the illegal activities that lent Chicago its reputation as a lawless city and an interesting variety of Hollywood stars have had the leading role as Al Capone in the many films that have been made that featured him as a character.

The first film about Capone was produced when he was still making headlines. The main character may be named Antonio Camonte, but there’s little doubt as to who producer Howard Hughes had in mind when he and director Howard Hawks filmed Scarface during the Great Depression. Camonte shares more than the same initials with one Al Capone, who was about to begin his eleven-year sentence for tax evasion when the movie was released »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hits $650 million worldwide

19 June 2017 6:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is showing some steady sea legs at the box office, with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales having pushed its worldwide haul to $650 million this past weekend.

The film, directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg and released in the UK as Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, has grossed a modest $150 million domestically – over $90 million less than the previous instalment On Stranger Tides, which was itself a franchise low. However, it has been performing very well on the international stage, where is has grossed a further $500 million, including $145 million from China alone.

Worldwide, Dead Men Tell No Tales is now just $4 million short of the total haul of the first instalment, The Curse of the Black Pearl, which earned $654.3 million back in 2003.

The Top Five Ian Holm Movie Roles of His Career

11 June 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

You might not recognize the name Sir Ian Holm. If you’re an avid movie fan, however, you’ve probably encountered it at least once before. Holm is one of those quiet giants of the acting world; precisely the type which seems to suit the British rather well. Just like other industry stalwarts (the names Jim Broadbent, Mark Rylance, and Stephen Graham come to mind), he’s lauded by critics but rarely plays the fame game. So, you might not know that you’re a Holm fan until you see his picture and realise that he’s been in some of your favorite films. There

5 June 2017 10:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jun 6, 2017

Walk Like A Panther is the kind of upcoming British comedy it's worth keeping your eye on...

When their local pub is threatened with closure, a group of wrestling stars from the 1980s find themselves slipping into lycra one last time to try and save it. That’s the story at the heart of the brand new British comedy, Walk Like A Panther, that started filming in Yorkshire a week or two back.

Backed by Fox International Productions, the movie stars Stephen Graham, Dave Johns, Jill Halfpenny, Sue Johnston, Lindsey Coulson, Julian Sands, Jason Flemyng, Stephen Tompinkson, Michael Socha and Scroobius Pip. It’s described as a “big-hearted British comedy”, one that sees friendships, community and family ties rekindled as the battle to save the pub begins.

Dan Cadan is making his feature directorial debut with Walk Like A Panther, which he’s helming based on his own screenplay. »

2 June 2017 5:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To coincide with the home release of Taboo, the superb 1800s-set TV series led by the remarkable Tom Hardy on Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD, we have a bunch of box-sets to give away to three lucky readers.

Set in 1814, Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy), a man who has been to the ends of the earth and returns irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father’s legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories and assemble his very own delinquent league of the damned to avoid his own death sentence. Encircled by conspiracy, murder and betrayal, a dark family mystery unfolds in a combustible tale of love and treachery.

Movie Review – Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017)

1 June 2017 3:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, 2017.

Directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberge.

Starring Johnny Depp, Javier Bardem, Geoffrey Rush, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Kevin McNally, David Wenham, and Stephen Graham.

Synopsis:

Captain Jack Sparrow searches for the trident of Poseidon while being pursued by an undead sea-captain and his crew.

Starting with the sublime The Curse of the Black Pearl, the Pirates franchise has steadily declined in quality with each offering duller than before and with Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow becoming more annoying. With its fifth instalment Salazar’s Revenge (Dead Men Tell No Tales in the Us) I was pleasantly surprised as it is an entertaining and enjoyable romp with tons of action and a decent villain.

This time around Jack Sparrow is looking for the trident of Poseidon assisted by Will Turner’s teenage son Henry (Thwaites) and woman of science Carina (Scodelario »

Spoilers: How Geoffrey Rush feels about that big revelation in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

29 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Spoilers for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales follow…

Geoffrey Rush’s Captain Barbossa may have started off as a pure villain in the franchise, but he quickly became a fan-favorite, easily rivaling Captain Jack himself in popularity. Throughout the series we have seen Barbossa involved in all sorts of antics with and, without Jack Sparrow and company. However, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales takes things a step further with the character, and gives audiences a peek into his history, revealing…(Spoilers)… that Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) is actually the long-lost daughter of Hector Barbossa. What does actor Geoffrey Rush think about this big reveal? Talking to Cinema Blend, the actor weighs in:

“It’s a bit like the Dickens novels that, episode by episode, happen over a long period of time and the readers have a contribution to it. I liked »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens to $270 million as Baywatch sinks at the box office

29 May 2017 3:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The fifth instalment of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise set sail this past weekend, with Dead Men Tell No Tales opening to $270.6 million worldwide.

The film claimed $62.2 million domestically, the lowest opening for the series since the first instalment Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl opened with $46.6 million back in 2003. Neverthless, this pushed Disney beyond the $1 billion mark for the year in North America, while the film added a further $208.4 from international markets, including a whopping $67.8 million from China, and a record-setting $18.1 million in Russia. It is expected to pass the $300 million mark today.

Pirates of the Caribbean won’t continue without Johnny Depp

28 May 2017 7:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While the franchise survived the departure of two of its original stars in Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley with 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed that the series will only continue for as long as Johnny Depp is willing to return as Captain Jack Sparrow.

““I just don’t see it [working on Pirates without Depp],” Bruckheimer told Digital Spy during a press interview to promote the release of the new film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. “The secret to any successful franchise is picking talented people, and Johnny is absolutely key to the success of Pirates. He’s such a unique character, such an endearing character, and such an irreverent character all in one.”

Bruckheimer also seemingly ruled out a small screen spinoff of the blockbuster series, adding that: “You have a kitchen in your house, right? But you still go out to eat. »

Forbidden Tomes: Love Letters of Blood – The Inverted Metafiction of Stephen Graham Jones

26 May 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Modern horror fiction that is both original and classically satisfying is difficult to find. So many stories have been brought to paper already, it’s hard to find a plot that has not yet been explored. Many authors must set about exploring these stories from unique, often amusingly clever, angles, but in doing so the story loses its classic power to scare. Literature has not quite exhausted its power, though—not even close. There are authors who can do both at once, some even while leaving a tear in your eye. Stephen Graham Jones is one of these authors.

This man has written fifteen novels and over two hundred short stories. In addition to being prolific, he’s a masterful prose stylist and an ingenious constructor of plots. His stories drip with melancholic wit, Carver-esque insights to human sadness, and uniquely sharp narrative voices. This is put on display brilliantly »

Fans around the world are gearing up for Thursday night sneak peek screenings of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which brings Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow back to the big screen for the first time in six years, since 2011's Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
