'Jurassic World' Gets Its PG-13 Rating in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

12 May 2015 3:54 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't think anyone is surprised to see a PG-13 rating for Jurassic World, but if you'd like the reasoning for said rating see below. This week's bulletin also includes an R-rating for Peter Bogdanovich's new film She's Funny That Way, which hasn't been receiving the kindest reviews, but does star the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Imogen Poots, Lucy Punch, Owen Wilson, Kathryn Hahn, Jennifer Esposito, Debi Mazar, Rhys Ifans, Will Forte, Cybill Shepherd, Tatum O'Neal, Illeana Douglas, Quentin Tarantino and Richard Lewis. So, there's that. Finally, Tangerine is the Sundance film that received a lot of attention because it is apparently a.) good and b.) was shot entirely on an iPhone. The complete bulletin is listed below. Awol-72 Rated R For violence, language throughout and brief sexuality. Batkid Begins Rated PG For some mild thematic material. Dovid Meyer Rated PG For thematic elements. Dragon Blade Rated R For bloody violence. »

New Image For Oliver Stone’s Snowden Sees Joesph Gordon-Levitt And Shailene Woodley Walk The Streets Of The Capital

7 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Late last month, the first image from Oliver Stone’s upcoming biopic Snowden found its way online, which sees Joesph-Gordon Levitt step into the shoes of the controversial figure. Now, with filming well underway in Washington, D.C., a new still from the production has surfaced that shows the leading actor walk the streets of the capital alongside Insurgent star Shailene Woodley.

Treading the line between whistleblower and traitor, depending on your own personal perspective on the events, Edward Snowden was an Nsa contractor who published a string of classified information from the company relating to Internet security, the controversial Prism program and much more. Before this debacle, though, he was a solider serving his country, and it’s understood Stone’s feature will spin out the divisive topic by first focusing on his own personal background.

Currently, Snowden has been granted political asylum in Russia, and no matter what »

Noah Baumbach Says 'The Corrections' Was "Too Complex" And "Too Expensive" For HBO

31 March 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Noah Baumbach has been on something of a tear recently, knocking out the whimsical "Frances Ha," the now-playing tale of middle age crisis "While We're Young," and the upcoming "Mistress America" which recently premiered at Sundance (review here). But it might be easy to forget that somewhere in there, the director dipped his toe in the world of television, shooting a pilot for HBO. The project was a star-studded adaptation of Jonathan Franzen's acclaimed "The Corrections," with Ewan McGregor, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper, Dianne Wiest, Rhys Ifans and Greta Gerwig all part of the ensemble. You would think the series would be a no brainer, but in the spring of 2012, HBO passed. So what happened? Well, it's a mix of Baumbach not falling into the rhythms of making drama for television and a package that HBO figured wasn't worth the price tag. "I don’t know that I appreciated »

‘Serena’ is an incoherent mess

29 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Serena

Written for the screen by Christopher Kyle

Directed by Susanne Bier

USA/France/Czech Republic, 2014

Based on a bestselling novel by Ron Rash, Serena, as brought to the screen by director Susanne Bier and screenwriter Christopher Kyle, feels like a husk of an adaptation even to one completely unfamiliar with the source material. It’s the sort of film that, at least in the form prepped for theatrical release, makes one inclined to believe its makers have completely lost the ability to tell a story. And it’s not like that ever seems like a deliberate stylistic choice, with Bier actually focusing on some thematic flourish off on the sidelines. Serena is always focused on its plot. Its perpetually rushed, choppily told, borderline confusing plot.

Part of the trouble in the telling is that the film’s a tonal mess. In her native Denmark, and with American cinema forays »

Serena – The Review

26 March 2015 6:35 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence costarred in a movie shot between Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle which is finally hitting screens after a couple of years on the shelf and a stint on pay-per-view. Serena, a gothic tale of greed and ambition run amok, is set amongst the timber industry in the mountains of North Carolina during the Depression. The movie has not received much love from critics and indeed it’s kind of a mess – an overripe melodrama that’s all over the map in terms of tone. It’s full of gorgeous moments alternating with many more that feel literate to the point of boredom, and others where the characters motivations make little sense. But I liked it and think it deserves a better reception then it’s received. If you’re looking for an old fashioned sumptuous costume drama starring two always-watchable leads with proven chemistry »

Place Beyond the Pines: Bier’s Ungainly Period Piece Revels in Unintentional Gaffs

Danish director Susanna Bier’s second English language film, Serena, has gained a bit of notoriety after an unexpected delayed theatrical release in the Us. A melodramatically inclined period piece based on a novel by Ron Rash (author of The World Made Straight, of which an adaptation was released earlier this year), the lush production design and starry cast creates a misleading veneer, which slowly gives way to a rather kooky portrait of its eponymous lead character. Presented with soberingly grim determination, the film lapses into unintentionally laughable territory, though not to a degree worthy of camp aesthetic or cult following.

Filming shortly after their award winning collaboration on 2012’s The Silver Linings Playbook, the first onscreen reunion of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper finally saw a premiere at the 2014 London Film Festival and reactions have been »

How did “Serena” go from an Oscar contender to a pretender?

23 March 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

You probably aren’t aware of this, but a third Bradley Cooper/Jennifer Lawrence collaboration is opening in theaters this weekend. In fact, it has been available On Demand for weeks already. Yes, a film that stars arguably the two biggest stars in Hollywood had a VOD start before the impending limited release on Friday. What movie is this, you ask? Well, it’s Serena, a once incredibly high profile adaptation that had the likes of Darren Aronfosky and Angelina Jolie circling it. Initially slated to come out even before American Hustle, hoping to capitalize on the Cooper/Lawrence success in Silver Linings Playbook, this seemed like a strong Academy Awards player. So…what happened? For those of you not in the know about Serena, here’s a brief overview. It’s adapted from the novel of the same name by Ron Rash, directed by Oscar winning foreign filmmaker Susanne Bier, »

Take Your First Glimpse Of Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Edward Snowden

3 March 2015 10:22 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Oliver Stone is currently hard at work on a biopic of American whistle blower Edward Snowden, entitled Snowden, and today we can reveal a first look at actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt who stars in the title role. Snowden famously leaked classified information from the Nsa (National Security Agency) in 2013, and is currently exiled in Russia. He was also the subject of last year’s Academy Award winning documentary Citizenfour, which is an outstanding work.

The script is based on the books “The Snowden Files: The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man” by Luke Harding and “Time of the Octopus” by Anatoly Kucherena.

We’re expecting the film towards the end of the year (the Us has a tentative Christmas Day release penciled in), just in time for awards season. Shailene Woodley, Tom Wilkinson, Nicolas Cage, Timothy Olyphant, Zachary Quinto, and Rhys Ifans also star. Shooting is underway over in Munich, »
