Moore Best Actress Oscar Helps 'Alice' But Not 'Maps': Box Office

1 March 2015 4:44 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper. For that, »

Captain America screenwriters on a second season for Agent Carter and whether it could explore the Winter Soldier program

27 February 2015 10:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s eight-part series Agent Carter drew to a close on Tuesday evening with the season finale ‘Valediction’ [read our review here], and now writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (whose credits also include Captain America: The First Avenger and its sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier) have been speaking to EW about a potential second season and where it could lead story-wise.

“When we were figuring out the show and the backstory of the show, we had a really nice story about who Peggy is and where she came from. We just didn’t have any time. I would love to tell that story,” states Markus, with McFeely adding, “That’s one of our strongest ideas for the second season: What makes Peggy, Peggy? We like what Peggy is, but if you ask some hard questions, you might wonder: but why is she that way? We have some thoughts on that.”

"Agent Carter" Producers Offer S2 Thoughts

25 February 2015 12:34 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Marvel's "Agent Carter" limited series wrapping up its eight episode run last night, questions have turned towards what could be in store for a second season of the show should Marvel decide to proceed with it.

"Agent Carter" Season Finale Spoilers

In a new chat with THR, co-showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas spoke about That ending which ties up events between that of "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and the brief appearance of Toby Jones as Zola.

Does Jones' appearance mean he'll serve as the second season's villain? Fazes says: "He isn't necessarily coming back. That scene wasn't saying that Toby Jones is going to be the big villain of season two or anything. It was just recognizing that this is the start of the Winter Soldier program."

The show has essentially maintained the same audience as "Shield" has in the timeslot, »

Agent Carter episode 8 review: Valediction

25 February 2015 8:14 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Agent Carter concludes a strong series with a satisfying finale. What more could we ask for? Oh yeah, more...

This review contains spoilers.

1.8 Valediction

Well, it's fair to say that was a pretty satisfying conclusion to a strong TV series. From the audience-pleasing return of the Captain America radio play to the fantastic cameo in the final scene, there's very little about the ending to Agent Carter that you can criticise, with the possible exception of there being slightly too much Howard Stark for a show without his name in the title. Because as much as everyone loves Dominic Cooper being the 40s Tony Stark, his presence has the same effect as Robert Downey Jr.'s, sucking the audience's eyes away from every other character.

That said, the episode's denouement – a reprisal of Captain America's ending where Stark and Carter work through their Steve Rogers issues together – was near-masterful »

It’s Off To Work She Goes: Jessica Chastain Signs For ‘The Huntsman’

24 February 2015 11:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It may not have Kristen Stewart, but Snow White-related fantasy sequel The Huntsman is building quite a roster of names, with Jessica Chastain the latest high-profile addition to the cast.

She’ll play an unspecified role alongside Emily Blunt and original stars Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron. Hemsworth and Theron return as the title character and Ravenna respectively. Nick Frost was seemingly out of the picture but struck a deal with Universal to reprise his dwarf character Nion – one of two featured in the new film. Toby Jones won’t be returning due to failed negotiations.

Story details have yet to be released but the dark fairy tale adventure follows on from 2012’s Snow White And The Huntsman. Rupert Sanders is replaced as director by FX creator Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, and Frank Darabont has written the script. Joe Roth produces.

Chastain is firmly in fantastical territory. Having explored the universe in Interstellar, »

Review: ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’ Just Didn’t Have Legs (Spoilers)

24 February 2015 10:45 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When critics are asked why they sometimes hedge when heaping praise on new series, an appropriate three-word response would be “Marvel’s Agent Carter.” Despite an extremely handsome pilot and appealing lead in Hayley Atwell, the ABC limited series meandered through several episodes that merely seemed to inch the story along, rallying only slightly in the not wholly satisfying conclusion. So while the show represented an enterprising line extension of the Marvel universe, the experiment has to be viewed as a miss, at least creatively speaking, which just didn’t have legs.

Like all of Marvel’s properties (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched the finale), “Agent Carter” derived some additional oomph from tying into the company’s flagship titles – in this case, both “Captain America” and “Iron Man,” inasmuch as the latter’s father, wealthy playboy/inventor Howard Stark (an under-used Dominic Cooper), set the storyline in motion. »

‘Agent Carter’ Finale Postmortem: Producers Talk Surprise Cameo, What’s Next for Peggy

24 February 2015 10:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Warning: Do not read on unless you’ve seen the “Agent Carter” season one finale, titled “Valediction”

Agent Carter” ended its first season with an emotional gut-punch and then — in true Marvel fashion — with a tantalizing tease, all but guaranteed to leave viewers wanting more and further illustrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s central motto — “everything is connected.” The hour saw Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and her allies, Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy) and Agents Jack Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) and Daniel Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) succeed in defeating the manipulative Dr. Faustus/Fennhoff (Ralph Brown) and saving the city. But in the episode’s final moments, the newly incarcerated hypnotist met his equally terrifying cellmate, Dr. Zola (Toby Jones), the Hydra scientist who became the architect of the Winter Solider program that turned Captain America’s (Chris Evans) former ally, Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), into a »

Agent Carter Finale Recap: Times Scare — Plus: Should It Get a Season 2?

24 February 2015 7:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Marvel’s Agent Carter on Tuesday night brought its season to a satisfying conclusion — but was there almost too much closure, not enough dangling threads?

Picking up where last week’s episode left off, the Ssr arrives at the movie house to find 47 innocents dead, the cause as shocking as the grim scene itself: “They killed each other.” The trigger for the melee is uncovered by Sousa, who inadvertently gets a whiff of the Item 17 gas and then violently lunges for Thompson, before getting subdued. »

DVD Review – Serena (2014)

23 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Serena, 2014.

Directed by Susanne Bier.

Starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Rhys Ifans and Sean Harris.

Synopsis:

In Depression-era North Carolina, the future of a timber empire becomes increasingly complicated when its owner marries.

What a strange Serena Williams biopic this is. There’s practically no tennis.

In its place are breathtaking panoramic shots of the Smoky Mountains. They live up to their name; there’s smoke everywhere. It creeps up hillsides, engulfing trees and wildlife without discrimination. There’s a metaphor in there somewhere: losing sight of your original intention, getting pulled under by the personal, how unedited versions of these landscapes should be uploaded as desktop wallpapers – they are truly majestic, for which cinematographer Morten Søborg deserves considerable credit.

It’s just a shame the rest of the film gets in the way.

Serena is an overwrought, poorly structured melodrama that works against its characters’ relationships. Individually, the players »

New Trailer Lands For M. Night Shyamalan’s Event Series Wayward Pines

19 February 2015 12:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been nearly a year since we were first introduced to M. Night Shyamalan’s creepy small town drama, Wayward Pines. That first sneak peek trailer hinted at a bizarre, dream-like serial – and this latest one from Fox continues to explore that Lynchian tone. Based on the novel Pines by Blake Crouch, the event series was developed for the small screen by Chad Hodge, with the aforementioned Sixth Sense helmer on board to produce and direct the pilot.

The limited series stars Matt Dillon as a Secret Service agent on the hunt for two missing federal agents in Wayward Pines, Idaho. As he ventures deeper into the town’s seedy underbelly, his investigation turns far more sinister than he imagined. Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, and Juliette Lewis also star as a ragatg crew of the town’s residents.

Serena DVD Review

19 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Susanne Bier

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Rhys Ifans, Toby Jones, Sean Harris, Sam Reid, David Dencik

Running Time: 109 minutes

Certificate: 15

After being pleasantly surprised by the partnership of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, one of my highlights of 2012, I had an open mind when it came to reviewing Susanne Bier’s Serena. However, while Lawrence and Cooper made sweet, ballroom magic in the former, not much can be said for the latter.

Set in Depression-era North Carolina, Cooper features as wealthy timber businessman George Pemberton, a local Lothario keen to produce a son to carry on his empire. Enter Serena Shaw (Lawrence), glamorous horse-rider and orphan, due to a fire engulfing her family home. The pair bond over their love of the great outdoors and soon get married, much to the disapproval of Pemberton’s employees. However, while the couple try many times to conceive, »
