Neill Blomkamp: I Messed Up 'Elysium'!

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After making his directorial debut with the 2009 Best Picture nominee District 9, Neill Blomkamp certainly became a filmmaker that everyone had their eyes on. His follow-up, 2013's Elysium, was received fairly well by the nation's critics (68% on Rotten Tomatoes) and took in over $286 million worldwide, from a $115 million budget, although some considered it a failed effort. While doing the press rounds for his new film Chappie, the filmmaker spoke candidly about Elysium in an interview with Uproxx, stating that he believes he "f---ed it up."

"So, let's say you make District 9 and it does well. So, now, a normal director is like, "Sh*t, I've got this pressure because this last film did well and I hope this one lives up to it." I don't have that. It definitely doesn't bother me. The thing that bothers me is if I feel like I f---ed it up."

Film Independent Spirit Awards 2015 Live-Blog

21 February 2015 1:55 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix Award Gurus Kris Tapley and Greg Ellwood are both attending Saturday's Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) afternoon in Santa Monica and they left me to handle HitFix's Independent Spirit Awards Winners & Losers list.  And once I'm watching Saturday's show, I might as well be live-blogging Saturday's show as preparation for Sunday's Oscars live-blog, especially since is the last time that "Birdman" and "Boyhood" will be going head-to-head for Best Picture (along with "Selma" and "Whiplash") before the Academy Awards. So follow along and say "Hi" in the comments below... And remember that Saturday's show, hosted by Kristen Bell and Fred Armisen, is airing live on IFC, not that obnoxious tape-delayed thing they used to do! 1:50 p.m. Pt. The show hasn't started, but if you're following the Winners list, you know that "Birdman" has already won for for cinematography, while "Whiplash" won for editing, both results I can accept. »

28 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »
