New Black Mass Trailer: Johnny Depp Goes Gangster

36 minutes ago | | See recent news »

Warner Bros. has released a new Black Mass trailer for writer/director Scott Cooper's (Crazy HeartOut of the Furnace) upcoming drama.  The film stars Johnny Depp as notorious crime boss Whitey Bulger, who simultaneously worked as an FBI informant and committed horrible crimes throughout the Boston area for decades. Cooper's film follows Bulger's criminal career through multiple decades of terror. I like what I'm seeing here. The trailer has personality and it's fun - the latter being a quality that is lacking in most crime sagas. It's great to see Depp doing some serious acting for the first time in over a decade and honestly, it looks like he's going to kill it. Depp is an actor known for relying heavily on costume to make himself "unrecognizable", but this is some of the best work I've seen in that regard. And let's not forget about that supporting cast. »

Fifty Shades Of Grey – The Blu Review

11 May 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

“You want hearts and flowers? That’s not something I know.”

In Michael Haffner’s 2-of-5-Star review of Fifty Shades Of Grey here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote “….with all the script and story issues and its misrepresentation of cultural aspects within a sexual community, Fifty Shades is still the most sex we’ve seen from a major studio film at the multiplex in quite some time. That’s not a bad thing. It’s a dumb escapist sex fantasy…… Let the fans of the books enjoy their fantasies, and maybe if this Grey phenomenon continues to grow something better or at least more memorable might come along.” (read all of Michael’s review Here)

I thought Michael was generous. I found Fifty Shades to be a bondage movie with little perversion, a love story with little passion, and because of the nature and reception of the book, »

‘Fifty Shades’ Trailer Voiced by ‘Full House’s’ Bob Saget Is Like Hearing Your Dad Seduce Himself (Video)

9 May 2015 7:11 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Whether you found “Fifty Shades of Grey” arousing or not, you’re sure to find its latest incarnation starring Bob Saget as sexy as hair on soap. In a new version of the film’s official trailer, the “Full House” father figure voices both Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson‘s roles, as the chaste Anastasia Steel is coaxed into corporate titan Christian Grey’s freaky-deaky world. You haven’t lived until you’ve heard Saget seductively recite lines like “My tastes are very singular,” before embarking on a series of halfhearted moans, grunts and groans of what one can only assume is ecstasy? »

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Interview with Eloise Mumford | Exclusive

8 May 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Universal Pictures and Focus Features picked up the rights to E.L. James' scintillating novel Fifty Shades of Grey, and its subsequent sequels, in 2013, many prognosticators and analysts thought the studios had landed a surefire hit, given the enormous popularity of the books. They were not wrong, with the adaptation taking in over $569 million worldwide from just a $40 million budget. Even if you haven't read the books or seen this movie, you likely know that this erotic story centers on Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), but this adaptation is chocked full of stellar supporting performances as well, including Eloise Mumford as Ana's roommate Kate. It's Kate, in fact, who essentially sets up her roommate's first meeting with Christian, which leads into their unique "relationship." I recently had the chance to speak with Eloise Mumford over the phone about Fifty Shades of Grey, which is available »

'Fifty Shades of Grey', 'Selma', 'Lost River' and More on DVD & Blu-ray This Week

5 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fifty Shades of Grey This Blu-ray arrived only a few hours ago and as I type this my wife took it and is currently giving it a rewatch, all despite the fact she didn't even like it. I don't know what to tell you, but such is the way of the world. Personally, I did not enjoy this movie one bit, but I will always recognize Dakota Johnson as she saved all kinds of face and gave a solid performance in a junk movie. However, I should note this one doesn't actually arrive until Friday, so you're going to have to hold out just a little longer. That is unless you want to just buy the streaming version and own it now.

Selma Sean already reviewed the Selma Blu-ray for you (read that here) and gave it high marks, both for the film and for a solid set of bonus features. »

Janelle Monáe's Met Ball Beauty Look Brought True-to-Self Drama

5 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

With her signature twist on classic styling firmly in place, Janelle Monáe hit the red carpet at last night's Met Gala as only she could: Dramatic cape? Check. Black-and-white color scheme? Check. Pompadour? Check. But it's with makeup that the singer introduced a variation on her signature look. Instead of going with the graphic and kicky cat-eye that Monáe often wears—a look that was worn by several stars at the Chinese-themed event, including Dakota Johnson and Lorde—the singer called all attention to her kisser by rocking an ultra-suede red lip. And it spoke volumes. To create a look with just as much depth, start by filling in the entire lip with a matte lip liner. Next, layer a »

"Fifty Shades" Alternate Ending Revealed

5 May 2015 2:46 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Fifty Shades of Grey" having become available on iTunes, the alternate ending to the film adaptation of the much talked about E.L. James novel has been released and showcases a more hopeful conclusion than the very abrupt one that actual film got.

MTV has done a breakdown of the ending which continues on after the elevator doors close on both Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan). The additional footage reportedly shows the couple going about their now separate lives.

He struggles to concentrate during a business meeting, she gets into fetal positions and cries a lot. She then sends him a toy version of the glider that the pair flew, along with a note saying that "This reminded me of a happy time."

And that's it. The disc version also includes the early teaser for the upcoming "Fifty Shades Darker" which hits in early 2017. »

What Happens In The Fifty Shades Of Grey Alternate Ending

4 May 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The ending to the theatrical cut of Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey was… abrupt. It was a conscious, open-ended conclusion to an emotional film, and it differed from the book on which it was based. News recently surfaced that an alternate ending to Fifty Shades of Grey would appear on the DVD, and now we know what fans can see. MTV broke down the scene, available now on iTunes, and traced the steps of both Ana (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) after the elevator doors closed. Their reports says that additional footage shows the couple going about their normal day-to-day lives, only separate from each other. Christian struggles to maintain focus during what looks to be an important business meeting. Anastasia cries a lot, locked in a “fetal position,” according to MTV. But all hope is not lost. Ana reportedly sends »

Regarding the female version, the studio has hired Lucia Aniello and Paul Downs ("Broad City") to write the script.

Time Machine: Best Picture Nominee Co-Star Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet

1 May 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Justin Timberlake on the Oscars' Red Carpet Justin Timberlake at the Academy Awards The Social Network actor Justin Timberlake arrives at the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. At the ceremony, Timberlake and Black Swan actress Mila Kunis introduced the nominees – and eventual winners – in the animation categories. Throughout the proceedings, he pretended to be the elusive Banksy, whose Exit Through the Gift Shop was a Best Documentary Feature contender. The joke fell mostly flat, but Timberlake actually elicited some laughs when he imitated three-time Oscar-nominated veteran Kirk Douglas*, who mercilessly stretched the Best Supporting Actress announcement into what seemed like hours. Admittedly, Douglas was funny. (The winner in that particular category turned out to be Melissa Leo for David O. Russell's The Fighter.) As announced by the Justin Timberlake-Mila Kunis duo, the Best Animated Short Film was Shaun Tan »

Scott Cooper Talks Black Mass, His First Cut, and Future Projects

1 May 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

One of my most anticipated films of this year is writer/director Scott Cooper‘s (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace) upcoming drama Black Mass.  The film stars Johnny Depp as notorious crime boss Whitey Bulger, who simultaneously worked as an FBI informant and committed horrible crimes throughout the Boston area for decades. As you can see in the awesome looking trailer, Depp looks fantastic in the role and with a supporting cast made up of  Benedict Cumberbatch, Joel Edgerton, Dakota Johnson, Juno Temple, and Jesse Plemons, I think we’re in for something special when Black Mass hits theaters September 18th. Last week at CinemaCon I got a few minutes with Scott Cooper before seeing the trailer during the presentation. He talked about the time frame of the movie, how the project came together, his first cut, if Black Mass could premiere at the Toronto Film Festival or Telluride, »
