8 October 2015 6:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As the Hollywood studios attempt to transition to the digital age, there’s been some bumpy roads along the journey as copyright and ways to access get sorted out. Today brings an example of how to do things right as Paramount have launched The Paramount Vault, which, according to their official description “showcases a collection of Paramount full-length films and clips including selections that range from black-and-white to color, comedy to horror, and everything in between.”

While the selection isn’t massive (yet, hopefully), it includes a number of highlights. Notably there’s Sean Byrne‘s deliciously wicked The Loved Ones, John Cassavetes‘ drama Love Streams, Wachowskis‘ impressive debut Bound, Noah Baumbach‘s overlooked Margot at the Wedding, as well as films featuring Jack Nicholson, Audrey Hepburn, Elvis Presley, and more.

Check out our top picks thus far below and it should be noted only those in the United States can view. »

Clive Owen Is Excited to Be Patti Smith’s Muse for Her Detective Novel

7 October 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

During a conversation at the Hearst building, Patti Smith said that in addition to her two nonfiction works, Just Kids and M Train, she was also working on a detective novel. "I have my detective. I've been working on it for a few years at my own pace," Smith said. And while a publishing agreement prevented her from divulging further details, she did say that she had cast the British actor Clive Owen in mind as the detective.Fortunately for us, Owen is making his Broadway debut in Old Times, so Vulture relayed the news last night that the rocker was using him as her muse for her fictional private-eye. “Get out,” Owen said. “I’m very excited to hear that. I’m going to put on record she better send it to me when she’s written it. She better! I want that to go public.” Did you hear that, »

'Old Times': Theater Review

6 October 2015 1:08 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Clive Owen makes a riveting Broadway debut in Harold Pinter's Old Times, playing a man whose cocky suavity slowly unravels as he negotiates his hold on two elusive women, who may be different sides of the same person. That's just one possible interpretation of this famously slippery 1971 three-hander about the mutable recesses of memory and the evanescent nature of erotic possession. But director Douglas Hodge doesn't make the mistake of imposing explanations where none were intended as he charts a transfixing course from gamesmanship to the consuming loss of a fantasy that was perhaps never attainable to begin with.

'Pitch Perfect 3' Takes 'Pacific Rim 2' Release Date

29 September 2015 5:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Universal Pictures announced that the highly-anticipated Pacific Rim 2 has been pushed to a later but unspecified release date, in order to give director Guillermo del Toro and his team more time to get the film ready. The studio also revealed that another sequel, Pitch Perfect 3, will take over the August 4, 2017 release slot formerly occupied by Pacific Rim 2. Pitch Perfect 3 was originally slated to open two weeks earlier on July 21, 2017, but Pacific Rim 2's delay puts Pitch Perfect 3 in a much better spot.

Universal announced in June that Pitch Perfect 3 would hit theaters on July 21, 2017. At the time, its only competition was an untitled animated movie from 20th Century Fox, and EuropaCorp's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, which has Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen and Dane DeHaan set to star. However, earlier this month, Warner Bros. announced that their Untitled Christopher Nolan Movie »

The Knick Ticks In With A Season 2 Trailer

15 September 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Coming across as a sort of turn-of-the-century House, albeit with Clive Owen as the driven, self-medicating medic and Steven Soderbergh dictating the look and style of the show, The Knick roared through its first run of chaos, corruption and corpses last year. The new series on the way and the teaser trailer has arrived. Owen is back as Dr. John W. Thackery, the complicated surgical genius who works – when he’s not sleeping with nurses or injecting/sniffing/snacking on illegal intoxicants – at the Knickerbocker Hospital in 1900s New York. He knows he has what it takes to develop new procedures and save more lives at a time when medicine was still part savagery, but he can’t always seem to get out of his own way.The show, boasting a kinetic energy from Soderbergh and show creators Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, was praised for its look and feel. »

Matt Damon Is Back In Business As The Titular Agent In First Bourne 5 Set Photo

8 September 2015 2:01 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the first day of principal photography now in the can, series producer Frank Marshall has revealed our first look at Matt Damon as Jason Bourne ahead of Bourne 5, and you’d hardly think the actor ever took a brief hiatus from the action franchise.

Shooting on the as-yet-untitled sequel kicked off in Tenerife, Spain earlier this week, where Universal’s production will remain until at least early October. Interestingly, Marshall referred to the production as ‘Bourne 2016′ in his Tweet, hinting that the studio will opt for a subtitle over a numerical sequel, as many had already assumed.

Details on the story are, as you would imagine, thin on the ground. Paul Greengrass’ anticipated actioner recently recruited Vincent Cassel in the role of the villain – an asset dispatched with one primary goal in mind: to hunt down the elusive Jason Bourne. Throughout the course of the series, »

Why You Should Start Watching: The Knick

8 September 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Knick

Created by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler

Returns Friday, October 16th at 10pm (Et) on Cinemax

Premise: In 1900s New York, the Knickerbocker Hospital is at the front of pioneering new medical techniques, headed by the brilliant yet troubled John “Thack” Thackeray (Clive Owen). Dealing with budgetary issues, high mortality rates, racism, and their own personal demons, the staff of the Knick fights to keep their heads above water and create modern medicine in the process.

Where We Are: Season two starts this fall; 10 episodes have already aired

What You Need To Know: Essentially a medical procedural that happens to be set at the turn of the century, The Knick is home to as many dysfunctional individuals, secrets, and prejudices as E.R. or Grey’s Anatomy. Thack balances being a revolutionary surgeon with addictions to cocaine and morphine, as well as a taste for experimental treatments that Dr. House would regard respectfully. »

Paul Greengrass Action Sequel Bourne 5 Has Found Its Villain

1 September 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With filming due to get underway later this week in Rome, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Paul Greengrass’ Bourne 5 has found its lead villain in Vincent Cassel.

Joining the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander and, following a brief spell on the sidelines while Legacy was in the ether, Matt Damon, there’s no word yet on who the esteemed French actor will be playing, though his casting is surely a major coup for Universal as it looks to get its Bourne action series back on track.

Throughout his career, Cassel has appeared in a variety of different roles on both sides of the moral compass. Chief among those is his part in the Ocean sequels, along with Darren Aronofsky’s adorned Black Swan. According to today’s report, he’ll be playing an asset, a mysterious figure who is tasked with hunting Damon’s titular agent. Across the course of the series, »
