Starry Eyes’: The feel disturbed movie of the year

This film is at its very core a success story. A very demented, gory, horrifying and darkly comical success story – one with tinges of satanic cult horror wrapped in psychological terror. The plot follows a young aspiring actress, Sarah, as she is called back to audition for a horror film that is being produced by a mysterious production company that pushes her to her limits – a dark exchange for fame and fortune… click here to read the article. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I’ is all prologue

In a previous review of the second instalment of The Hunger Games series for this website, I expressed some dismay that Catching Fire didn’t really have a conclusion to speak of, with its cliffhanger ending reminding me less of The Empire Strikes Back and more of The Matrix Reloaded orPirates of »

7 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Our new home." Now that Christopher Nolan's sci-fi spectacular Interstellar (Sound Off here) has been in theaters for over two weeks (which means we hope you've all seen it by now!), some great artwork and explanations are hitting the web. Last week we featured an excellent infographic timeline that nicely laid out the timeline as it intertwined with the plot of the film, following the crew of the Endurance as the embark on a mission to explore another galaxy. This new one, made by digital artist Sivakumar found on deviantArt, includes charming little sketches of the characters and the events that take place, really giving this a fresh, fun feel why making some sense of the plot. I really like this one, take a look. Oh and of course - spoilers! Here's the infographic from Siva Kumar explaining Christopher Nolan's Interstellar - click to see high res: I »

5 More Movies That Could Use Comic Book 'Missing Chapters'

9 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Unveiled this week, the comic book “missing chapter” of Interstellar gave director Christopher Nolan the chance to expand his story of mankind’s survival — and close a potential plot hole — without adding to the movie’s already-lengthy run time. It’s not the first time that such a conceit has been used (Wired, which ran the Interstellar comic, did a similar thing with J.J. AbramsStar Trek in 2009), but with any luck, it’ll be the start of the next big thing. Here are five more movies from this year that should follow in Interstellar’s footsteps and spin out

Box Office: 'Mockingjay' trails previous 'Hunger Games' films with $55 million Friday

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" isn't quite keeping the first two films in the series at the box office, but is nonetheless on its way to a massive opening weekend.  Powered by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, "Mockingjay" soared to $55 million on Friday, making it the biggest Friday opening of the year. "Transformers: Age of Extinction" earned $41.9 million on its first Friday. "Mockingjay" will likely earn around $130 million for the weekend, again topping "Age of Extinction's" $100 million weekend debut. However, "Mockingjay" is doing much slower business that last year's "Catching Fire," which opened to a staggering $158.1 million last year, as well as the first "Hunger Games," which bowed to $152 million in 2012. The first film went on to gross a huge $408 million domestically, while "Catching Fire" topped it with $424 million. The threequel -- the first part of the two-part finale -- will have to make up some ground next week »

‘Mockingjay Part I’ Wings Way To $67.5M After 3-Days: Int’l Box Office Update

10 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Update Saturday Am Pt: With an estimated $55M at the domestic box office on Friday, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I fell about 22% shy of Catching Fire‘s $70.95M first day in 2013. However, the international rollout is providing some serious wind beneath Mockingjay‘s wings. It’s playing on 17,000 screens in 85 overseas markets, including key European and Latin American dates. It won’t hit China until 2015, but Asia has not been a massive bullseye for Katniss & Co over the course of the franchise. Still, even without China, and with Korea still entranced by Interstellar, Mockingjay‘s estimated three-day overseas total is $67.5M. In order to best Catching Fire first frame, where it played in 63 markets, Mockingjay will have to soar above $146M. That included $12.9M earned in China which was a day-and-date release last year. Below are updated figures from key territories since Wednesday’s kick-off; I’ll be »

Nolan Talks That "Interstellar" Big Surprise

11 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Now that we're a few weeks removed from Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic "Interstellar," the filmmaker has begun to touch upon some spoilers regarding the movie's various secrets.

"Interstellar" Spoilers Ahead

In an interview with The Daily Beast this week, Nolan went into detail about one of the film's big surprises - Matt Damon's role as the earlier expedition leader Dr. Mann. Mann follows a quite familiar to the point of being a cliche role - the coward whose desperate need to justify his self-survival threatens everyone's existence. Nolan admits the part is pretty much as it seems:

"It's very straightforward: selfishness and cowardice. It's very human, and I love what Matt did with that; he found the reality of it. It's the kind of sequence where you loathe the guy because he's doing something that you feel you might wind up doing in a similar situation. It's very logical, »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Thursday Night Box Office Opening Underwhelms

21 November 2014 7:40 PM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 failed to meet expectations in its Thursday night debut at the North American box office as the northern portion of the country continued to dig out from extensive snow storms. The slow start immediately impacted Lionsgate's stock and cast major doubt on whether Mockingjay can reach the same heights that the original The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ascended to in their opening weekends.

With Jennifer Lawrence back as unsung hero Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 earned $17 million on Thursday night from showings that began at 8pm. To put those numbers in perspective, The Hunger Games earned $19.7 from its Thursday night showings while Catching Fire did just that with a $25 million opening night bow.

There were a number of factors working against Mockingjay - Part 1 headed into last night's showings on top of inclement weather. »

Watch 24-min Making of Doc on Christopher Nolan's Memento

21 November 2014 5:19 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Christopher Nolan's second film, Memento, is a hard movie to describe and sound sane. The events in Memento are shown backwards and forwards at the same time (sounds insane, right?). The Sundance Channel did a making of documentary called "Anatomy Of A Scene." It's 24 minutes long, and if you haven't seen the movie, stop and don't watch this video. It's jam-packed with spoilers.

Memento has a methodically created structure and narrative. The film is the best example of the Nolan brothers' writing skills and Christopher's editing prowess. With all the big budget films that Christopher Nolan has been creating over the last decade or so, I wonder if he can still tell a smaller story.

Christopher Nolan Talks 'Interstellar' Spoilers and Ending

21 November 2014 3:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker Christopher Nolan's Interstellar still has fans talking two weeks after first hitting theaters, with many continuing to overthink the ending. During an interview with The Daily Beast, the filmmaker shed some light on a pivotal scene.

There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

One of the biggest surprises for audiences was the reveal that Matt Damon portrays Dr. Mann, one of the original astronauts sent out during the Lazarus missions to find a new home for humanity. Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and the rest of the Endurance crew head to Mann's planet because the data from beacon readings were promising, but they come to realize that Mann faked the data so he could be rescued. Mann ultimately attacks Cooper and leaves him to die, leaving to set up "Plan B" on Edmunds' planet.

When asked about Mann's motivations for this actions, Christopher Nolan had this to say. »

Watch: Take a Closer Look at the Science & Sound of 'Interstellar'

21 November 2014 2:41 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though everyone will talking about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I after this weekend, there's still some life left in the discussion surrounding Interstellar. Whether it's about the quality of the film (especially when it comes to the sound mix) or an astrophysicist like Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about the mysteries of the film's science, there's plenty to talk about. So how about we add some more fuel to the fire with Tyson talking about the science from the ending of the film (without spoiling the narrative side of things). And for an added bonus, there's also a SoundWorks Collection featurette looking at all the work that went into the various choices made in creating the sound effects and more, especially for IMAX. Watch! Here's Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about the science of the end of Interstellar (via Movies.com): And here's the SoundWorks Collection featurette on »

Jessica Chastain Discusses Astronaut Training & Nasa’s Jpl For Ridley Scott’s The Martian

21 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Ridley Scott’s epic Exodus: Gods And Kings opens in theaters in three weeks.

Jessica Chastain currently stars in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar where she plays a scientist trying to save humanity from extinction.

One year from now, Scott and Chastain, along with Matt Damon, come together in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming sci-fi film The Martian.

“Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.”

This week's 'Ask Drew' examines the aggressive issue of Chris Nolan fanboys

21 November 2014 12:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

These are going to start playing a little shorter. We're trying to turn each episode of "Ask Drew" into a fun little streamlined bullet fired directly into your brain pan. I can be a verbose Sob given even the slightest prompting, and part of the fun of "Ask Drew" is that I have no time to prepare for any of these questions. Because I can talk endlessly, though, when we do six or seven questions, these things start to get longer than they should be. We cover some ground this week, too, with one of the highlights for me being a question about Christopher Nolan. It's interesting to me because of how it was phrased, and how clearly it's a case of perspective. How you feel about Chris Nolan's fans probably depends largely on just how enamored you are with Nolan's work yourself. Fandom is a fascinating, and at times terrifying, »

New Study Reveals Most Moviegoers Don't Decide What To See Until They're At Theater

21 November 2014 11:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

How we watch movies is almost as important as what we watch. Certain films, like Christopher Nolan’s massive “Interstellar,” demand to be seen in their most pristine format, ideally on a big screen. Other films, like Paul Thomas Anderson’s wooly, inscrutable “Inherent Vice,” should be seen with an audience —it’s just that kind of movie. The current climate also shrouds many of its bigger, more potentially profitable pictures in a veil of secrecy —all the better to whet the public’s fervent anticipation— while less established films, like the sublime French comedy “Tu Dors Nicole” seem to come from out of nowhere. The patterns of how we watch films are integral to the experience itself: many young people I know dread the idea of actually going to the movies (the hushed whispers of fellow moviegoers, the hassle of parking, the high cost of a ticket… all these »

A Mid-November Oscar Predictions Update

21 November 2014 11:34 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’m going to keep it short and sweet today folks, or at least a bit shorter than usual in terms of set up. You all know by now that it’s time for my middle of the month Oscar predictions update piece. Sometimes, there’s only a tinker or two to be done, but today…today I have a seismic shift to include, namely in the arrival of Selma on the scene. It’s gone from being shut out (what was I thinking?) to contending for wins in multiple major categories. In fact, more than one of the big eight categories have new winners listed, so this is a definite change in thinking. Some of it might be short lived, but that’s what the upcoming new set of predictions next month is for, right? I’ve also added the three short form categories (Animated Short, Documentary Short, and »

Editor Lee Smith says he could only play with time so much in 'Interstellar'

21 November 2014 10:58 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the past decade, Lee Smith has worked alongside Christopher Nolan as the director has climbed to the highest peaks of Hollywood, with "Batman Begins," "The Prestige," "The Dark Knight," "Inception," and "The Dark Knight Rises." I recently had the chance to speak to Smith about his approach to editing, Nolan, their relationship, and their change of pace (both literal and figurative) that is "Interstellar." Coming from an Australian family deeply involved in the film industry, Smith started his career working in sound. In the editing realm, he cut his teeth on genre films like "The Howling III" and "RoboCop 2" and soon began a collaboration with Peter Weir on titles such as "Fearless," "The Truman Show" and "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" (for which he earned his first Oscar nomination). While working in Hollywood on "Master," Smith was first asked if he was interested in meeting Nolan, »

Marion Cotillard on 'Macbeth': 'I lost control of everything'

21 November 2014 10:25 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Marion Cotillard has had what can only be described as a remarkable seven years. Truly. Since winning the Best Actress Oscar for her breakthrough performance in "La Vie en Rose" she's starred in Woody Allen's best film this century ("Midnight in Paris"), Christopher Nolan's Best Picture nominee ("Inception"), worked with Michael Mann ("Public Enemies"), smartly joined a Steven Soderbergh ensemble ("Contagion"), headlined a massive French-language hit ("Little White Lies"), was already robbed of a second Best Actress Oscar nomination ("Rust and Bone") and was the center of an acclaimed drama already well on its way to cinephile cult film status ("The Immigrant"). Throw in one flick for her life partner ("Blood Ties"), a paycheck too hard to turn down ("The Dark Knight Rise") and a musical that just didn't work ("Nine") and Cotillard is already well on her way to living legend status. Now, get ready to add  "Two Days, »
