Mark Wahlberg, Director Peter Berg in Talks for Action Movie ‘Mile 22’ at Stx

2 July 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg are in negotiations with Stx Entertainment for the action movie “Mile 22.”

The film would mark the third collaboration between Berg and Wahlberg, who also teamed on “Lone Survivor” and the upcoming “Deepwater Horizon.”

Its first release “The Gift,” starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton, opens August 7, followed by “The Secret in Their Eyes,” starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor, on Oct. 23.

Martial arts champion Ronda Rousey and “The Raid” star Iko Uwais have also been cast in “Mile 22.”

Wahlberg and Berg are repped by Wme. »

A Cannes Opener: 2016 Cannes Film Festival Predictions

29 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A furious slew of titles in the works would seem to prophesize a robust main competition slate for Cannes 2016. Though our initial list will eventually be pruned down as the year progresses (Berlin may snag something in here, especially if their 2016 lineup looks anything like their landmark selection from this past January), we’re confident that we will be seeing another round of heavy hitting auteurs unveiling their latest bits on the Croisette.

Absent from the main competition in 2015 were the Romanians (Muntean and Porumboiu were assigned to Un Certain Regard) and any trace of Latin filmmakers. The 2016 edition looks to make up for lost ground. For the Romanians, a couple heavy hitting titans from the New Wave will be ready. Cristi Puiu, who previously won Ucr in 2005 with The Death of Mr. Lazarescu should hopefully be getting a competition invite for Sierra Nevada. Meanwhile, previous Palme d’Or winner »

25 deleted scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies

9 June 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Even with as much planning as the Marvel Cinematic Universe, some scenes end up on the editing room floor…

This film has spoilers for every film in the Marvel cinematic universe.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe… if you’ve just clicked into this article, it’s likely that you need little reminding of how much it changed the landscape of Hollywood. But that won’t stop us recapping for continuity’s sake. Heck, it’s what Kevin Feige would want.

It began in 2008, then, with the landmark casting of Robert Downey Jnr as Tony Stark. It’s sometimes hard to remember how much a risk that was at the time, but heck did it pay off. The movie, directed by Jon Favreau, was strong, and a huge hit. And the notion of a post-credits sting was introduced. And it was a big one, too – Samuel L Jackson namedropping the Avengers Initiative. »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »
