'Knock Knock' Trailer #2 Has Keanu Reeves in a Threesome Nightmare

31 August 2015 12:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When a devoted husband and father is left home alone for the weekend, two stranded young women unexpectedly knock on his door for help. What starts out as a kind gesture results in a dangerous seduction and a deadly game of cat and mouse. A sexy new thriller from director Eli Roth and written by Eli Roth & Jos&#233 Nicol&#225s Lopez Garc&#237a & Guillermo Amoedo, Knock, Knock stars Keanu Reeves as the family man who falls into temptation and Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas as the seductresses who wreak havoc upon his life, turning a married man's dark fantasy into his worst nightmare.

The early fall movie season is all about horror movies, as we creep up on Halloween. And fans of Eli Roth are in luck. He not only has Knock, Knock arriving in a few weeks, but The Green Inferno is also coming to theaters this September. »

6 Oscar Season Narratives That Could Shape the Race This Year

31 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With summer doldrums in the rearview, In Contention has found a new home just in time for the annual Oscar season…and not a moment too soon. A number of fall film releases sit primed for reveals at the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals over the next several weeks, kicking off the race to the 88th Academy Awards.

As ever, a number of the season’s hopefuls will live and die by the narratives conjured in their wake. Because as we know — and I can’t imagine this notion is all that controversial  — an Oscar race is as much about the stories told off-screen as it is about the stories told onscreen.

Here are a few such stories to keep an eye on as we wade into the deep end of the year. Don’t be surprised if a number of them are revisited at length in this space over the next six months. »

Alex Gibney Doesn't Pander to Steve Jobs in His Unsparing New Doc 'Man in the Machine'

31 August 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Described as "a renegade, but legit," "a study in contrasts," "a monk among priests," "maniacal" and "a rebel," Steve Jobs is sketched in contradictory terms by human documentary factory Alex Gibney ("Enron," "We Steal Secrets," "The Armstrong Lie," "Finding Fela") in "Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine." This bracing film at first seduces you with the charms of the man, and then guts you with what a tricky riddle he was, an at-times sociopathic mogul who flew close to the Sun, touched it and never quite fell as the laws of physics dictate he should have. Jobs, upon whose shoulders the entire Apple empire grew and rested, inspired a nation's worth of outpouring and grief when he died in 2011 of complications of pancreatic cancer. While "The Man in the Machine" does admire the man's genius, the film does not shy away from peeling back the layers. Careful editing by. »

Going Clear Director Alex Gibney Thinks Journalists Should Ask Tom Cruise the Tough Questions About Scientology

28 August 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

While Tom Cruise is pretty open when it comes to his lip-syncing skills and impressive stunts, when it comes to his involvement with the Church of Scientology his lips are sealed. During the press tour for Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation Cruise didn’t answer a single question about his involvement with the church, even though the documentary Going Clear, released just a few months earlier, made it evident Cruise was the religion's poster boy, regularly trotted out for big events. Crash director Paul Haggis, who defected from the church and appears in Going Clear, recently blastedreporters for not asking Cruise the tough questions. Vulture caught up with the film’s director, Alex Gibney at the screening of Steve Jobs: The Man The Machine, who agreed:i think it’s an outrage that nobody’s asking questions, particularly because I know that Cruise’s publicists are going out and saying, if »

Universal breaks new box office record with $5.5 billion haul - and no superheroes

25 August 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

After a series of similarly impressive feats, Universal Pictures has broken a new record for the highest-grossing international box office year ever with $3.78 billion - and it's only August.

Including American receipts - known as "domestic returns" by those in the business - Universal's Smaug-esque pile of gold currently stands at around $5.5 billion.

This is without a superhero franchise on the go, the mainstay for many other studios (Disney's McU, Fox's X-Men and Warner's DC back catalogue).

The biggest winners for the studio include:

Jurassic World $1.623 billion

Fast and Furious 7 $1.512 billion

Minions $990.2 million

Fifty Shades of Grey $569.7 million

The only films to rival Universal's world domination are Disney's Avengers: Age Of Ultron with $1.401 billion - seen by many as a disappointment after the first Avengers' $1.519 billion - and Inside Out, which stands at $689.9 million currently.

Even in the non-blockbuster stakes, the studio is still hitting it out of the park, »

Universal Sets International Box Office Record With $3.8 Billion

24 August 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Led by “Jurassic World” and “Fast and Furious 7,” Universal Pictures Intl. has sped to a new record for the highest-grossing year ever at the international box office with $3.78 billion.

The studio has topped the previous record of $3.73 billion set by 20th Century Fox’s 2014 year-end international grosses, achieving the new record more than four months before the end of the calendar year.

Universal has four of the year’s top five international grossers — “Fast and Furious 7” ($1.2 billion), “Jurassic World” ($983.5 million), “Minions” ($670.2 million) and “Fifty Shades of Grey” ($404.1 million). Disney-Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” took in the third highest global gross this year with $944 million.

The studio noted that it had four No. 1 worldwide openings, and has been No. 1 at the international box office for 10 weeks, more than any other studio. It also has set records for the fastest a studio has ever reached $2 billion and $3 billion at the international box office. »

“The Martian”: Oscar predictions for August

21 August 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s almost crunch time folks! Yes, this is the last set of predictions before we start to get into fall festival season (pay close attention to the New York Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, and Toronto Film Festival), which in turn launches the Oscar race. As such, you won’t see a ton of changes here this time around, but be prepared for a lot of contenders to move around during the next update or two. I might be going to twice a month for predictions come September, so it’s going to be interesting seeing how these potential players do or do not shape up in the race. As such, this update represents a definite demarcation in the year. From here on out, it’s truly awards season for all of us… The latest Trailer for The Martian (which you can see below) keeps it at the tip top for me right now, »

Honesty (No Lie!) About The Movies Of 2015… So Far!

13 August 2015 3:42 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

So here we are, smack dab in the middle of the dog days of summer (and if you don’t get that little saying, try lying out on the sidewalk in 100-degree heat for 15 minutes or so, like Fido does, and see if a light bulb doesn’t go off). The dogs are often howling in movie theaters too—at times it seems as though August has replaced January in the hearts of moviegoers as the dumping ground for pictures not really worthy of our attention (or a serious investment in the marketing department). Movies like Pixels and Fantastic Four have their perverse fascination—just how bad can they possibly be? Both were greeted with reviews so scathing and unyielding in their acidity that studio heads can only pray nothing in October, November or December will be perceived as worse, and I have to admit a certain curiosity. But that »

Well, there goes one of David Fincher's projects at HBO. The filmmaker behind such films that never happened such as 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, Steve Jobs, and The Goon, has yet another project that has slipped through his fingers.

David Fincher’s ‘Utopia’ With Rooney Mara Is Dead At HBO, ‘Videosyncrazy’ Might Be Doa Too

8 August 2015 4:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Not even 24 hours after we heard no miracle was reached for David Fincher’s thriller series “Utopia” at HBO and we tried to dig around a little more, Deadline has the scoop: “Utopia” is dead. Written by Fincher’s “Gone Girl” collaborator Gillian Flynn, “Utopia” ran into trouble a few weeks ago when Fincher and HBO clashed over the budget on the show. Fincher wanted north of $100 million for the first season, and for comparison, Netflix’s budget for the first three seasons of “House Of Cards” was also $100 million. But Fincher doesn’t do anything on the cheap and won’t get out of bed without a petty pay day (see “Steve Jobs," which Sony balked at at the time because of his $10 million asking price). Things were already looking grim and the writing was on the wall for “Utopia” last week as the cast were released from their contracts, »

Steven Spielberg Confirms Ready Player One

6 August 2015 4:39 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Steven Spielberg is in one of his periods of high activity. Even as he was putting the finishing touches to Cold War thriller Bridge Of Spies, he was preparing to shoot Roald Dahl adaptation The Bfg. And it looks like he’s already made another project official, with Warner Bros. and DreamWorks announcing a December 15, 2017 Us release date for Ready Player One. The director had been reported as interested in the project back in March, but it wasn’t a done deal at the time. Now, though, he’s on board and the producers will be hoping that – unlike Robopocalypse, which has still yet to reactivate – he’ll stay that way. Written by Ernie Cline, the screenwriter behind Fanboys, Ready Player One follows teenager Wade Watts who likes to escape his dreary, dangerous real world by logging into Oasis, a globally networked virtual utopia where users lead idyllic alternate lives. »

Universal Has The Best Box-Office Year Ever

6 August 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Universal Pictures is having a great year. In fact it has grossed $5.53 billion at the worldwide box office in 2015 to date - giving it the biggest year of all time for a single studio, and that's with five months still to go.

20th Century Fox held the previous record with $5.52 billion last year, but that was across the entire twelve months. That Universal has done this in just seven months, and without a single superhero franchise which is the genre du jour of the moment, is nothing short of astonishing.

The studio has been powered by the key global success of five quite different and diverse films - "Jurassic World" ($1.562 billion), "Furious 7" ($1.515 billion), "Minions" ($875 million), "Fifty Shades of Grey" ($570 million) and "Pitch Perfect 2" ($283 million). Even small films like "Unfriended" ($54 million) "The Boy Next Door" ($50 million) were highly profitable, and the yet to really open globally "Trainwreck" is already looking like another solid hit. »
