Fall Films

Movie ticketing service Fandango has released the results of a survey they have conducted to find the anticipated movies of the Fall film season. Unsurprisingly, the juggernaut of a sequel "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I" stands at number one.

After that came David Fincher's "Gone Girl," Chris Nolan's "Interstellar" and the Denzel Washington-led "The Equalizer. Rounding out the top ten are "The Penguins of Madagascar," "The Judge," "Dumb and Dumber To," "Fury," "The Good Lie" and "Foxcatcher". [Source: The Wrap]

Darkest Minds

"Wayward Pines" creator Chad Hodge has been set to adapt the first book of Alexandra Bracken's young adult novel trilogy "Darkest Minds". Shawn Levy will produce.

Set after a pandemic kills most of America's children and teenagers, some survivors develop superpowers but are deemed too dangerous for society. Taken from their families, they are placed inside internment camps where a sixteen-year-old with telekinetic »

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 111 – Tammy Review

15 September 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Tammy Review

If you’ve been listening in for a while, you probably now that we weren’t really looking forward to Tammy. We’ve been  giving this movie this business, just based off of the trailers, for months, and it turns out that we may have been setting our expectations too high. It’s a film by the deluded, for the theatrically uninitiated, and about the boringly moronic.

We refer to this week several times as the “so you think being a movie critic is a great gig” week, and while this isn’t the worst film we’ve seen in a decade, it was somehow more draining than even films that were worse. It’s unfortunate, because we both have mostly positive thoughts when it comes to Melissa McCarthy, but with this and the completely useless The Heat, we’re getting a little tired of her jumping so »

8 Former Sitcom Stars With Oscar Buzz This Fall

15 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s an understood rule of comedic actors that they can all do drama, as well. Comedy is harder, of course. But then not every comedic actor is truly an actor. Not every comedic performance is about more than good line readings and having the necessary timing to tell a joke. Stand-up comedians often get starring gigs on sitcoms, but that doesn’t mean they’ll wind up with an Oscar nomination someday. (Sorry, Sinbad.) Those who do end up with Academy recognition are those who were always set to shine on the big screen and wound up on TV as a short little detour along the way. Jennifer Lawrence, for example. And Tom Hanks. And Leonardo DiCaprio. But there are also former TV comedy stars who do great work in dramatic movies and never garner Oscar attention, and then they have to go back and do a Dumb and Dumber sequel.

DreamWorks Showcases Supernatural Animation B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations

15 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When DreamWorks first unveiled its kid-friendly animation B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations, the all-new IP seemed to echo the comic tones of other genre pieces like Men In Black and Ghostbusters — particularly the latter, with Bill Murray himself on board to voice the film’s overarching big bad.

And while we’re a ways away from seeing any footage from the upcoming action comedy, we now know the style of DreamWorks’ latest project thanks to a pre-emptive marketing image courtesy of Amazon.

Going off of face value, the art style of B.O.O. is reminiscent of Nickelodeon’s Jimmy Neutron combined with a dollop of the studio’s other franchises, such as Kung Fu Panda and How To Train Your Dragon.

Perhaps what’s most promising about B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations at this early stage is its eye-catching ensemble cast. Joining the aforementioned Bill Murray are Seth Rogen »

First Look at DreamWorks Animation’s B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations

15 September 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’ve got a soft spot for cute, pet-like animated characters so when news first broke that DreamWorks Animation was making a movie about a ghost who needs to attend ghost school in order to become a better scarer, I was hooked.  However, that was a few years ago and since, the narrative and title of Boo U has changed. Now we’ve got B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations on the way and it tells the story of a pair of ghosts who go to work for the B.O.O., an organization dedicated to protecting humans from evil spirits.  The scenario still sounds fun and also has Seth RogenMelissa McCarthyRashida JonesOctavia Spencer, Matt Bomer and Bill Murray leading the voice cast, but the very first look at the characters just surfaced and it’s not really what I was hoping for.  Hit the jump to check it out. »

'The Imitation Game' Wins Toronto Film Festival Audience Award

15 September 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2014 Toronto Film Festival has come to a close and the awards have been announced with little surprise at the top as it seemed it would either be James Marsh's The Theory of Everything my review and Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game my review, at least based on the movies I saw and the reaction I'd heard walking around the fest. And lo and behold, it was Imitation Game taking hom the People's Choice Award, but it appears Theory of Everything wasn't a close second. The first runner up was Isabel Coixet's Learning to Drive and the second was Theodore Melfi's St. Vincent starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy. The People's Choice Documentary award went to Hajooj Kuka for Beats of the Antonov with David Thorpe's Do I Sound Gayc taking first runner-up in which Thorpe confronts his anxiety about "sounding gay" while the second »

First Look At Dreamworks’ ‘B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations’

14 September 2014 11:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Dreamworks’ B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations is over a year away for us in the UK and won’t hit the Us until June 2015, but we can now take a look at some of the lead characters thanks to, of all things, a ‘Learn To Draw’ book currently available to pre-order on Amazon. The film sees 2 ghosts joining the titular organisation, a group who go around investigating and preventing hauntings. Seth Rogen and Melissa McCarthy take on the roles of the two new ghosts hoping to stop an evil haunter by the name of Addison Drake, played by former Ghostbuster, Bill Murray. Funnily enough, Seth Rogen was once tipped to be one of the replacement Ghostbusters in Ghostbusters 3, while more recently, Murray suggested McCarthy as part of a female ensemble for the long-awaited threequel.

The film was first announced in 2009 and what is now B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations, was once known as Boo U, »

‘No Good Deed’ Uses Star Power, Social Media to Top Box Office

14 September 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star power and social media savvy propelled “No Good Deed” to the top of the box office this weekend.

The $13 million film nearly doubled its production budget in its first three days of release, pulling in an impressive $24.5 million. The home invasion thriller was able to trump box office predictions because Sony and Screen Gems, the companies behind the film, expertly deployed Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson on Twitter to hawk the story of a district attorney menaced by a killer.

“You have two terrific actors who have followings and this weekend showed their collective star power is very powerful,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Rentrak.

Both actors will likely see their stars rise as a result. Elba has had showy supporting roles in “Thor” and “Prometheus,” but hasn’t carried a film to these kind of heights on his own shoulders since 2009’s “Obsessed.” He retains »

First Artwork From Dreamworks' "Boo"

13 September 2014 10:43 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A first look at DreamWorks Animation's supernatural action comedy "Boo: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations" has gone up at Film Divider.

The artwork comes from "Learn to Draw Dreamworks’ B.O.O.: Featuring Jackson Moss and all your favorite otherworldly haunts and heroes!," a promotional tie-in book for the film which hits cinemas on June 5th 2015 and stars the voices of Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy and Bill Murray. The book also includes a new synopsis:

"Short for 'Bureau of Otherworldly Operations,' B.O.O. introduces children to ghostly adventures in the digital age, as they come along for a spooky ride with the super-classified ghost-busting agency no one has ever heard of and certainly never seen. The agents of B.O.O. work to protect humans from evil hauntings with a secret weapon...They are ghosts themselves."

First Look at 'B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherwordly Operations' Team

Ever wonder what Seth Rogen and Melissa McCarthy might look like if they had their own Saturday morning CGI animated TV show? The first look at B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations gives us a pretty good idea, and it seems this DreamWorks Animated adventure isn't straying too far from their everyday appearance. This cute art comes courtesy of Amazon, who bring us the first look at B.O.O. with the cover of a tie-in activity book for kids. Take a look, then read on for a synopsis of the movie that describes both the plot and what this book has to offer:

Ugly Cry Alert: Katie Holmes Tackling Her Directorial Debut With ‘All We Had’

12 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Joey Potter, if there was any doubt you’d make it out of the Creek and make it big, that’s rightly been shattered. Katie Holmes is continuing her streak of pushing haters to the left and taking on unique, out-of-character projects by tackling her directorial debut with All We Had. Variety reports the drama, also a starring vehicle for Holmes, is an adaptation of the recently released Annie Weatherwax novel of the same name, scripted by Josh Boone. Boone’s name may sound familiar, as he just directed the self-refilling teenage pond of tears and despair called The Fault in Our Stars last spring. This means he has ample experience in dealing with misery and emotional mayhem, which will bode well in writing the movie — it’s a story centered upon a mother and her 13-year-old daughter who are struggling to hold their heads above water and escape poverty.

Kristen Wiig Facts: 23 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Actress

12 September 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Since breaking out on "Saturday Night Live," Kristen Wiig has been lighting up the comedy scene and paving the way for female entertainers.

After realizing that acting was her passion, the art student dropped everything and headed out to Los Angeles to make her dreams a reality. While success was hardly immediate for Wiig, her hall of fame "SNL" career and breakout film role in "Bridesmaids" (2011) have made her one of the biggest comedy actresses today. This fall, Wiig taps into her dramatic side in the indie favorite "The Skeleton Twins" opposite fellow "SNL" alum, Bill Hader.

From her days selling hot dogs to her big-screen debut, here are 23 things you probably don't know about Kristen Wiig.

1. Kristen Wiig was born August 22, 1973 in Canadaigua, New York to Laurie J. Johnston and Jon J. Wiig.

2. Her mother was an artist, while her father ran a lake marina in Western New York. »

Social Media Takes Starring Role in Toronto Movies

11 September 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood is notoriously phobic of technology — many A-list actors and directors routinely admitted how infrequently they check their email– but this year’s Toronto Film Festival suggests that Facebook, Twitter and other forms of social media are starting to land supporting roles at the movies. In “St. Vincent,” the Weinstein Co.’s upcoming comedy starring Bill Murray, a struggling mom (Melissa McCarthy) asks her son (Jaeden Lieberher) how she knows that his father cheated on her. He shoots back that it was her Facebook status update, a joke that landed an eruption of laughs at he film’s premiere on Saturday night.

Call it the “Her” effect. In 2013, the Spike Jonze drama about a man (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his operating system, served as a commentary on the way in which all modern interactions are now shaped by technology. That theme resurfaced this year at Toronto. Noah Baumbach »

Kristen Wiig Responds to Bill Murray’s Suggestion that she Star in Ghostbusters

11 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Earlier this week, Bill Murray was asked for his thoughts on the four actresses who should make up the rumoured female team of Ghostbusters set to appear in Paul Feig’s planned reboot of the franchise.

Those names were Melissa McCarthy, Linda Cardellini, Emma Stone, and Kristen Wiig, and the actress who starred in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last year has now responded to his suggestion/endorsement in a recent interview at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“I will do whatever Bill Murray tells me to,”

she joked, but refused to reveal whether she might end up joining the cast of Ghostbusters and reteaming with Feig after he directed her in Bridesmaids.

Her co-star from the upcoming The Skeleton Twins Bill Hader, added:

“I don’t want to pressure you, but you should do it… And you should have a friend, who’s, like, a guy who has »

Kristen Wiig talks female Ghostbusters and Bill Murray’s dream cast

11 September 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of days ago, Ghostbusters star Bill Murray gave his two cents on the news that the next Ghostbusters film could be an all-female reboot, as well as name the actresses who he would love to see involved.

Yahoo! Movies caught up with one of those that Murray named, Kristen Wiig, at the Toronto International Film Festival and she gave her thoughts on Murray’s endorsement.

“I will do whatever Bill Murray tells me to,” she joked.

Saturday Night Live alumn Bill Hader, who co-stars with Wiig in the upcoming The Skeleton Twins, said: “I don’t want to pressure you…. But you should do it… And you should have a friend, who’s, like, a guy who has to carry around your proton pack.”

Murray had also said that his three other “nominations” were Melissa McCarthy (Tammy), Linda Cardellini (Scooby-Doo) and Emma Stone (Easy A). No-one is as »

Tiff Review: Kristen Wiig Shines In The Funny & Entertaining ‘Welcome To Me’

11 September 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kristen Wiig fans, rejoice. The 'SNL' alumnus continues to quietly and steadily segue from sketch comedy on the small screen to feature length comedy on the big one, while still retaining her instinctive knack for hilarious shenanigans. “Bridesmaids” started her ascent, and we’ve already seen her this year in “The Skeleton Twins” (reviewed here) opposite fellow funnyman Bill Hader. Now comes Shara Piven’s “Welcome To Me,” where Wiig carries an entire film for the first time. Melissa McCarthy may have stolen her thunder in “Bridesmaids,” and there’s usually a Hader or a Ben Stiller (“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) around to share the weight. Not so in ‘Me,’ a one-woman show from start to finish. The comedienne plays Alice Klieg, a thirty-something recluse who hasn’t turned off her television set for 11 years. Her time is spent cooped up in her studio apartment, watching late night infomercials about parakeets, »
