It’s A Wrap! ‘The Newsroom’ Third & Final Season Finishes Filming

19 July 2014 2:36 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I’ve found that HBO’s The Newsroom has been a show the critics have wanted to berate but instead have found themselves taken in by the brilliance of the characters. Aaron Sorkin’s tremendous fictional ‘Television Newsroom’ spectacle has portrayed the day-to-day news in the way that most people would want to see it done and now returns this Fall for its final season.

There’s insurmountable coverage these days by supposed news journalism that usually ends up being nothing more than extended gossip, alongside unconsidered guess work. If you care about the world we live in, and keep up-to-date with your current affairs then The Newsroom brought back those hopes that such organisations once led with honesty and then -somehow – it might come back one day in Western society.

Of course, Sorkin had the advantage of reinventing old news coverage – by the series being set in the past »

15 July 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anthology films have been a mainstay in cinema for a number of years, as numerous filmmakers take the opportunity to create short films around a specific subject, or rooted in a specific genre. One of the more well-received of these anthologies was 2007′s Paris, Je T’aime, which led to a New York, I Love You.

'Jurassic World' Velociraptor First Look, New 'Ant-Man' Writers & Stallone Tackles 'Scarpa'

8 July 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) has come aboard to direct Sylvester Stallone in Scarpa. Written by Nicholas Pileggi (GoodFellas, Casino), the film will center on the story of real-life hitman Gregory Scarpa (Stallone), a man who murdered for the mob, suspected in the murders of his own biological family, then turned FBI informant. Avi Lerner's Millennium Films is producing with the hope of beginning production early 2015. Deadline Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) have apparently come provide on set production rewrites to the Ant-Man script on an "as needed" basis following Adam McKay's most recent draft. Filming begins next month in Atlanta, Georgia. Latino Review Even though I thought this had already been confirmed as I've had the spin-off from James Wan's The Conjuring, Annabelle in my database as an October 3 release for some time, apparently yesterday it was made official. So, do with that what you will. »

Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

Emily Mortimer Turns an Eye Toward the Spectral

7 July 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

Another bit of casting news has arrived for the latest spooker from Legendary Pictures, titled Spectral, as Shutter Island's Emily Mortimer is now in negotiations to start ghostbusting with the military!

She will join the previously announced Clayne Crawford, Cory Hardrict, James Badge Dale, and Max Martini. The flick is being directed by Nic Matthieu for Universal and Legendary.

The premise of the project is centered on a modern-day, militaristic, and gritty approach to fighting the supernatural.

The pitch, which sold for six figures, has been described as a darker and more serious take on a Ghostbusters-like story with a plot that revolves around a special ops group formed to bring down evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan. Locations and details might change, however.

More on this one soon!

Emily Mortimer Joins Supernatural Thriller 'Spectral'

7 July 2014 3:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Emily Mortimer is in talks to play the female lead in Legendary's supernatural action-thriller Spectral, alongside James Badge Dale.

The story is described as a supernatural version of Black Hawk Down, following a Special Ops unit who battles otherworldly creatures that have taken over a European city. Emily Mortimer is playing a CIA mission leader, with James Badge Dale playing a researcher who works with her. It seems that the story has been altered slightly, since our February report revealed that these creatures have attacked New York City, although now an unspecified European city will be the target.

Nic Mathieu is making his directorial debut on the project, working from a script by George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau) and John Gatins (Need for Speed), based on an original story by Ian Fried (Gaslight). Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing for Legendary, with Jillian Share and Guy Riedel serving as executive producers. »

And assuming she makes a deal, Emily Mortimer will be joining him.Based on a treatment by Ian Fried, which George Nolfi and John Gatins have since expanded into a full script, Spectral finds otherworldly creatures infesting somewhere in Europe – a switch from the American location mentioned when Dale was cast – and a special-ops team called in, Black Hawk Down-style, to sort out the problem. Dale is playing a researcher who specialises in strange happenings, whereas Mortimer is in line to be a CIA mission leader who takes charge.Nic Mathieu, who cut his teeth directing ads and music videos, is set to make the jump to films with this one, »

Jenny Slate displays an unusually high tolerance for embarrassment. During an outdoor film screening in Brooklyn on a recent Saturday night, the actress smiles calmly, seated among an audience watching her run a gauntlet of debasement on a big screen. She's pictured being brutally dumped, drinking her sorrows away in pajamas, dancing drunk and half-naked during a one-night stand, joking that her underwear looks like it crawled out of a tub of cream cheese, getting sloppy and humiliating herself onstage, taking a pregnancy test, fielding parental disdain, getting laid off, »

Emily Mortimer: why I still feel shame about going to work

It took Emily Mortimer 10 years to write Doll & Em, a new TV show created with her best friend, and overcome her 'misguided guilt' about her job

I don't think I'd have been able to write a TV series on my own. I wouldn't have had the nerve. If I've learned anything from making Doll & Em, the show my best friend Dolly Wells and I created, it's that you get confidence from collaborating with people you love and admire.

It took us 10 years to finally get something on to the screen. Dolly I have known each other since we were four and been incredibly close since our 20s. When I moved to America to live with my husband we really missed each other and used writing as an excuse to run up big phone bills and buy flights to see each other.
