Time Machine: Sensational Scarlett J. in Purple

7 May 2015 8:48 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

13 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick, 2014.

Directed by Chad Stahelski.

Synopsis:

A former hitman comes out of retirement hell bent on revenge for the men who took everything from him.

After a few dud movies and some time away from the spotlight, Keanu Reeves returns to the action genre with the blistering John Wick. A former hitman for the Russian mob, Wick has turned his life on his days of crime and settled down with his wife (Bridget Moynahan). Unfortunately she dies from cancer and he is left alone except for an adorable Beagle puppy which she picked out for him. All Wick has is his dog and his car, until a boisterous young thug called Iosef takes an interest in his car. Wick is beaten, his car stole and his dog is brutally killed. »

Movie Review – John Wick (2014)

10 April 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

John Wick, 2014.

Directed by David Leitch and Chad Stahelski.

Starring Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Dean Winters, John Leguizamo, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick.

Synopsis:

An ex-hitman comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that took everything from him.

Since that fateful day when Keanu Reeves fired his gun in the air and yelled “aaaarrrrgggh” he’s become a regular in the action genre. He dipped his toes with Point Break. He experienced box office and pop culture success with Speed, before ending the century as Neo in The Matrix, arguably the most significant action movie of the last 20 years in terms of cult-following, pop culture reference and blue printing future action films (even if The Matrix pilfered from more sources, than films in turn have since aped The Matrix).

Whilst Reeves has often been dismissed as someone lacking in acting range, »

John Wick review: Keanu Reeves excels in slick thriller

7 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Directors: Chad Stahelski, David Leitch; Screenwriter: Derek Kolstad; Starring: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Willem Dafoe, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Lance Reddick, Ian McShane, John Leguizamo; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 15

Overlook the seemingly stale premise of a hitman being lured out of retirement to exact revenge on a gang of nasty buggers. For John Wick is exactly what you'd hope for from a modern action movie - laced with tension, loaded with thrills and not afraid to unleash a few well-timed laughs. It also cleverly harnesses the star persona of its lead Keanu Reeves, without ever resorting to postmodern parody.

The storyline and viewer loyalties are established with a clinical precision that perfectly complements the film's minimalist aesthetic and the unflinching efficiency of Reeves's assassin. We know little of John Wick, but accept he's a Good Guy because he emotes after his wife dies and bonds with an unfathomably cute dog she bought for him. »

Sacha Baron Cohen returns to Freddie Mercury biopic to star and direct

27 March 2015 4:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sacha Baron Cohen has rejoined the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic.

The comedian, who previously exited the project after reportedly falling out with the remaining members of Queen, will now help to write, produce and direct the movie, as well as taking the lead role.

Music Week reports that the band's manager of 40 years, Jim Beach, announced Baron Cohen's re-appointment at the Artist and Manager Awards 2015 last night (March 26).

Skyfall actor Ben Whishaw had been singled out by Queen drummer Roger Taylor as a preferred replacement for Baron Cohen back in 2013.

The band also expressed concerns that the comedian's involvement would turn the project, based on the late singer's life, into "a joke".

Sacha Baron Cohen can next be seen in the Louis Leterrier-directed spy spoof Grimsby.

The comedy, which also stars Rebel Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Gabourey Sidibe, Isla Fisher and Annabelle Wallis, will be released on July »

Ray Donovan Season 3 Adds Aaron Staton, Fairuza Balk to Cast

26 March 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Following his reoccurring role as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, Aaron Staton will appear in a reoccurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan Season 3. According to Deadline Hollywood, Staton, who has also appeared in bit parts on The Good Wife and Person of Interest as well, will play Mr. Donellen, “a strict yet kind high school teacher with a tragedy in his past.” Little else is known about how Donellen will figure into the world of Liev Schreiber’s titular L.A. fixer, especially considering how things were left with Mickey (Jon Voight), the rest of Donovan’s friends and family, and the FBI at the end of season 2. [caption id="attachment_362604" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] The casting of Staton is only the latest in a long line of casting news for the Showtime series.

Showtime Gives Ray Donovan and Masters Of Sex Summer Premiere Dates

25 March 2015 10:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Showtime announced today that Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex will both return July 12th for their respective third seasons. Though there hasn't been much buzz about Masters of Sex in its offseason (thanks in part, perhaps, to its really uneven second season), Ray Donovan has had a lot of noteworthy news of late, including Katie Holmes and Ian McShane both joining the cast. Regarding Ray Donovan, Showtime says of its third season that, Season three finds Ray adrift from his family and those closest to him, while he focuses on his business and desires to be his own boss.  Meanwhile, his father Mickey (Jon Voight, in his Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning role), who had narrowly escaped last season's heist debacle, finds himself charting a similar course to build his own empire.

Showtime's 'Ray Donovan' & 'Masters of Sex' to return in summer

25 March 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Showtime has announced a summer premiere date for the third seasons of "Ray Donovan" and "Masters of Sex." Both dramas will return on Sunday, July 12, with "Ray" back at 9 p.m. and "Masters" at 10, just like last summer. "Ray Donovan" continues to attract notable guest stars, this season bringing in both Ian McShane and Katie Holmes. David Hollander (creator of CBS' "The Guardian") has replaced "Ray" creator Ann Biderman as showrunner. ("Masters of Sex" timeline spoilers coming in 3... 2... 1...) "Masters," meanwhile, will jump the narrative ahead all the way to 1966 (last year ended circa the JFK inauguration), as the new season "finds the famed duo of Masters (Michael Sheen) and Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) dealing with the glare of the national spotlight as their sex study is finally unveiled." (At the end of season 2, I spoke with creator Michelle Ashford about why big time jumps would become more and more necessary for the series as it continued. »

"Huntsman" Gets Three New Dwarves

19 March 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Rob Brydon ("The Trip"), Alexandra Roach ("Cuban Fury") and Sheridan Smith ("Jonathan Creek") have all signed on to play three new dwarfs in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's "The Huntsman," the upcoming prequel to 2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" which is in development at Universal Pictures.

Nick Frost has already signed on to reprise his dwarf role from the original, at the time it was indicated that the film would only feature two dwarfs. Seems that stance has been reconsidered, though Frost is the only actor who played a dwarf in the first film who is coming back for the sequel.

Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the other dwarfs in 'Snow White' and aren't expected back - though Jones and Marsan were said to have been contacted about the job.

'The Huntsman' Casts 2 Female Dwarfs

18 March 2015 5:53 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after actor Nick Frost signed on to reprise his Snow White and the Huntsman dwarf role Nion in Universal Pictures' sequel The Huntsman, Rob Brydon, Alexandra Roach and Sheridan Smith have signed on to play three new dwarfs. We reported in January that the sequel will only feature two dwarfs, but it seems Universal has reconsidered that stance. No details were given regarding these new characters, but this is the first time female dwarfs are being introduced into the fairy tale storyline.

In Snow White and the Huntsman, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson played the seven dwarfs. Our report from January revealed that Toby Jones could not come to terms with the studio to reprise his role, while Eddie Marsan had scheduling complications with the Showtime series Ray Donovan. It isn't known why the others »

Nick Frost Back For The Huntsman

18 March 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in January, there was some concern that the Snow White And The Huntsman prequel – simply called The Huntsman – would be rather lacking in the dwarfular department thanks to story directions and scheduling issues. Good news on that front! Nick Frost, who played Nion in the first film, will be back for this one, with Sheridan Smith, Rob Brydon and Alexandra Roach also signing on. This news signals that the likes of Ian McShane, Ray Winston, Johnny Harris, Eddie Marsan and Brian Gleeson are unlikely to return, though we’re counting none of them out given the change in Frost’s status.Cedric Nicolas-Troyan is handling directorial chores for this one, which finds Chris Hemsworth’s title character in the years before he first met Snow, and his early encounters with Charlize Theron’s beguiling, dangerous Ravenna. Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain are also set for the film, which will »

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »
