The top 30 underrated films of 2002

11 December 2013 9:31 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 12 Dec 2013 - 05:49

The year of Baggins, Potter and Spider-Man also had a wealth of lesser-known movies. Here’s our pick of 2002's underappreciated films...

At the top of the box office tree, 2002 was dominated by fantasy and special effects. Peter Jackson's The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers made almost a billion dollars all by itself, with Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets taking second place and Sam Raimi's Spider-Man not too far behind.

In many ways, 2002 set the tempo for the Hollywood blockbuster landscape, which has changed relatively little in the decade since. A quick look at 2013‘s top 10, for example, reveals a markedly similar mix of superhero movies, with Iron Man 3 still ruling the roost at the time of writing, followed by effects-heavy action flicks and family-friendly animated features.

As usual in these lists, we're looking »

How 'Hunger Games' and Ya lit are re-shaping the Hollywood blockbuster

16 November 2013 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

When Jk Rowling sold the film rights to her first four Harry Potter novels in 1999, few could have predicted the lasting impact this would have on both the literary and cinematic worlds. As Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone became a box office smash at the tail end of 2001, Rowling was still midway through writing her seven-novel saga.

This steady stream of films and books kept Potter in the spotlight - by the time Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 premiered in Trafalgar Square in 2011 the hype was deafening, public affection at an all-time high and Potter's status as a pop cultural phenomenon was cemented.

In Hollywood, the success of Potter (and the vacuum it left behind) led to a mad scramble to find 'the next big thing' for teens - audiences with disposable income who hoover up Young Adult literature (or Ya as it's commonly abbreviated) and »

Kink Can Wait: Valentine's Day Weekend 2015 Gets Several Shades More Grey

14 November 2013 2:38 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Fifty Shades of Grey’ release date postponed to Valentine’s Day 2015 (photo: Shirtless Jamie Dornan) Valentine’s Day 2015 will get a lot kinkier than Valentine’s Days of years past — well … depending on your concept of "kink." Universal Pictures has announced that the movie version of E.L. JamesFifty Shades of Grey, likely to get either a tame (for sex) R or an even tamer PG-13 rating from the prudes at the Motion Picture Association of America, has a new release date: Friday, February 13, 2015, the day before Valentine’s Day and the start of President’s Day weekend in the United States. To be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy), Fifty Shades of Grey is set to star Henry Cavill-look-alike Jamie Dornan (Flying Home) as billionaire and S&M aficionado Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) as his ready, willing, and able sex pal.

'Saving Mr. Banks' Producer Owen Says Film Industry Should Embrace the Internet in Keynote for BFI London Film Fest

18 October 2013 11:09 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“It’s about bloody time!” said Clare Stewart, the BFI London Film Festival’s Artistic Director, in her introduction to the first woman to give the festival’s annual industry keynote address, the fourth. British producer Alison Owen focused her 40-minute talk at the Curzon Soho Cinema on "The Power Of The Story" and exhorted the film industry not to be afraid of the internet, but rather embrace its potential because “the internet is a container, not a substance.” (Previous keynote speakers were James Schamus, Ken Loach and, last year, Harvey Weinstein.)Among Owen’s extensive credits are "Elizabeth," "Sylvia," "The Other Boleyn Girl," Cary Fukunaga’s 2011 adaptation of "Jane Eyre" and "Saving Mr Banks," which closes this year’s festival. The British producer had only arrived from South Africa at 6.30am that morning, having come directly from the set of Phillip Noyce’s sci-fi fantasy "The Giver," which stars Alexander Skarsgard, »

Katie Holmes Make Up Free - Wraps Up in NYC

15 October 2013 9:24 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Katie Holmes looked cozy as she stepped out in New York City. She flagged down a cab in the Big Apple while wearing jeans and a cute, baggy winter jumper. The star was make-up free, with her brunette locks falling past her shoulders. Earlier it was revealed that Katie is still busy with her acting gig - Holmes has joined the cast of 'The Giver'. The 'Dawson's Creek' star is the latest name to join Phillip Noyce's adaptation of Lois Lowry's 1993 sci-fi novel, which will also star Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges. 'The Giver' is set in a dystopian society which is disturbed when a 12-year-old boy named Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is selected to learn from an elderly man, The Giver (Bridges), about the pain and strife of the real world. Streep's alter-ego, the Chief Elder, is in charge of keeping order in the society, »

Paul Risker chats with Person of Interest star Kevin Chapman...

Recently Flickering Myth had the privilege to speak with Person of Interest’s Kevin Chapman aka Detective Lionel Fusco. As I eagerly await the second season of Person of Interest, the sound of Lionel’s… Sorry Kevin’s voice on the other end of the phone line was a source of comfort that took me back to happier days, when each week was adorned with a new episode, in which Reese would shoot someone in the kneecap. Oh, happy days.

Kevin spoke to us about discovering acting late in life, working with Clint Eastwood and Sean Penn, the award winning television series Brotherhood, the lessons learned behind the camera as well as and of course talking Lionel Fusco and Person of Interest

Taylor Swift & Katie Holmes Join The Giver

27 September 2013 1:28 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Pop star Taylor Swift has dabbled in acting before. She lent her voice to last year’s animated The Lorax and showed up a few years ago in the rom-com Valentine’s Day.

Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift Are Set to Pretty Up the Cast of ‘The Giver’

27 September 2013 12:15 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It seems like director Phillip Noyce (Clear and Present Danger, Salt) is pretty close to filling out the ensemble cast for his upcoming Ya adaptation The Giver. Though it was published in 1994, author Lois Lowry’s “The Giver” is one of those stories set in a future world that are aimed at young people and happen to be all the rage these days. Its world is one that’s free of poverty, disease, and most every kind of hardship, but it has a secret about how it got that way–a terrible secret–and always one person, called the Receiver of Memories, is chosen to hold what that secret is. Already Noyce has young Brenton Thwaites signed up to play the protagonist, Jonas, who is the new kid chosen to hold the memory, Jeff Bridges as the title character, who acts as the boy’s mentor, Meryl Streep as the villain of the piece, who »

Taylor Swift & Katie Holmes Join 'The Giver' With Meryl Streep & Jeff Bridges

27 September 2013 11:43 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Though she's conquered the music world and the gossip pages, Taylor Swift is now trying her hand at acting. She had a voice role in last year's animated "The Lorax" and popped up in one episode of "New Girl," but now it looks like Hollywood is ready to let her act opposite legends like Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges. Okay, then ... THR reports that Swift is joining "The Giver," the adaptation of Lois Lowry's popular Newberry Medal-winning young adult sci-fi novel that has Phillip Noyce slated to direct. The film is set in a futuristic, dystopian world (of course) where society has eradicated memories and emotion, giving the responsibility of remembering the past to a single person, the Receiver. The hero, Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), is selected to be the new Receiver, but while being trained by the titular Giver (Bridges), a previous Receiver, he finds himself struggling with the duties he bears. »

'The Giver,' Starring Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges, Heads Into Production

27 September 2013 9:39 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Weinstein Company has announced that principal photography on the big-screen adaptation of Lois Lowry's 1994 dystopian Ya classic and Newberry Medal winner "The Giver" gets underway on October 7. The film stars quite the cast: Weinstein Oscar fave Meryl Streep ("Iron Lady"), Jeff Bridges ("Crazy Heart"), Brenton Thwaites ("Maleficent"), Alexander Skarsgard ("True Blood"), Katie Holmes ("Batman Begins"), Cameron Monaghan ("Vampire Academy") and singer Taylor Swift. Bridges could use a lift after the ignominious flop "R.I.P.D." this summer.  Aussie Phillip Noyce ("Salt") is set to direct, with the adaptation penned by Michael Mitnick ("The Current War"). It will be shot on location in Cape Town, South Africa. For those of you who need a refresher on the story's plot: 12-year-old Jonas lives in a seemingly ideal, but colorless, society that has converted to "Sameness," which has eliminated emotional depth from its inhabitants' lives.
