The 14 Best Movies of 2014

18 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

2014 has been a brilliant year for movies. We can talk all day long about the disappointments and straight-up garbage shoveled our way, but that’s a waste of time and effort when so much greatness is available too. So lets talk about the great ones. One quick note: There are always acclaimed films that slip by and go unseen before the year-end deadline, and this year is no different. So for what it’s worth, at the time of this writing I have yet to see Citizenfour, Foxcatcher, Inherent Vice and Selma. 14. Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart Odds are you’ve never heard of this animated film from France, but regardless of whether or not you have kids at home it’s a movie guaranteed to surprise, delight and impress. The tale explores ideas of friendship, love and the value aiming high, but as solidly touching as the story and characters are it’s the creativity and »

Joss Whedon talks Avengers: Age of Ultron, introducing The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

17 December 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s less than five months to go before Marvel brings the curtain down on Phase Two of the Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the director has been speaking in depth to IGN about the hotly-anticipated sequel, including expanding the world of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with the introduction of new characters like The Vision, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, and of course the AI villain Ultron.

” I wanted Paul [Bettany] to play this part since before I wanted to make Avengers movies,” states Whedon on The Vision. “He’s just got, let’s face it, it’s about cheek bones, people… Before I took the first job, I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I’m right for this, or if I want it, or you want me, but in the second one, the villain has to be Ultron, and he has to create the Vision.’ And »

Joss Whedon Talks Hesitation to Return, New Additions to the Team, Collaborating with Marvel, and More on the Set of Avengers: Age Of Ultron

17 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | | See recent news »

When Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.   Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming.  While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015.  In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) reunite to stop Ultron (James Spader) from carrying out his sinister plan.  The film also stars  Elizabeth OlsenAaron Taylor-JohnsonPaul BettanyDon Cheadle,Andy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson. While on set, I participated in a great group interview with Joss Whedon.  He talked about how making The Avengers »

Joss Whedon Talks 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' 'Bigger' Sequels, and Scarlet Witch

17 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When we saw Joss Whedon on the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" this past summer, he looked like he had been beaten up by the movie's robotic bad guy. Bags drooped under each eye, he moved slowly, looked gaunt, and, while giving his answers the characteristically snappy Joss Whedon delivery, the way that countless characters of his have talked over the years in various TV shows and movies, this time it sounded more forced and battle-hardened. We were inside Avengers Tower, which had been mostly destroyed by Ultron (you can see bits of this in the trainer) and it looked like Whedon was part of that collateral damage.

But who could blame him? This was day 72 of the shoot, and there was at least another month of principle photography left to go. He was tired. And he was also under an incredible amount of pressure. Last time out, Whedon's »

Paul Bettany Talks J.A.R.V.I.S. & Vision in 'Avengers 2'

15 December 2014 11:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is still plenty we don't know about Avengers: Age of Ultron, as we inch closer and closer to the May 1, 2015 release date. One aspect of the story that has rarely been touched upon is the inclusion of Vision, which will be played by Paul Bettany, the longtime voice of J.A.R.V.I.S. in the Iron Man movies and Marvel's The Avengers. Earlier this month, a new poster offered us our best look at Vision yet, but the images were later removed, following a promo poster spotted in September. When asked when fans will finally get their first official look at Vision, Paul Bettany had this to say, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

"It's still a secret. I think all will be revealed very shortly. It's a secret I've kept for about three years, which is really hard, especially with three kids. I'm contractually »

Star Trek 3 director search: Duncan Jones denies involvement

15 December 2014 9:32 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Duncan Jones has denied that he is in talks to helm Star Trek 3, amidst reports that Jj Abrams and Paramount Pictures have reportedly narrowed their director search.

Abrams previously handed over to the director's chair to Star Trek Into Darkness writer Roberto Orci, but it was reported last week that Orci would not, in fact, take over the movie.

Edgar Wright was tipped as an early candidate following his own departure from Marvel's Ant-Man, with Deadline now reporting that several other directors are being considered as well.

Moon director Jones was mentioned as a contender in the outlet's report, but he has refuted any involvement with the project on Twitter.

"Very flattering being on short list for Star Trek, but won't be doing it. Absolutely Must make my own thing next, or I'll die of old age," he wrote.

15 December 2014 7:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures decided against hiring Roberto Orci to direct their upcoming sequel Star Trek 3, despite the studio getting ready for an early 2015 start date. The race is on to find a new director. And now, Paramount and producer J.J. Abrams have narrowed their search down to five contenders. Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt is at the top of the list.

Also being considered to direct the sequel, which J.J. Abrams left behind to focus on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, are Morten Tyldum, who just released The Imitation Game in time for awards season. Daniel Espinosa, director of Safe House who just wrapped on Child 44 with Tom Hardy. Fast & Furious director Justin Lin, who became available after The Bourne Legacy sequel with Jeremy Renner was pushed back to make way for Matt Damon's return.

'Avengers 2': New Iron Man Armor Revealed

15 December 2014 6:52 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If Marvel had wanted to end Tony Stark's story, Iron Man 3 served as the perfect closer. It brought a clean slate to the character, and pretty much wiped out all of his armor. But Robert Downey Jr. will be back to fight another day as the iconic Marvel superhero, which means he needs a whole new outfit in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Hot Toys has now revealed this new suit in full detail.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark will don the Mark Xliii Armor. And Hot Toys is releasing a premium action figure based on this model. A set of photos deliver our first look at this return to form for the character, which brings an inverted color scheme from its predecessor, the Mark Xlii. You can check out the images below, along with this description from Hot Toys:

Sony leaks: Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams paid less than male American Hustle co-stars

15 December 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams were reportedly paid less than their male American Hustle co-stars, according to emails leaked following the cyber attack on Sony.

In correspondence between various executives shared by The Daily Beast, it is revealed that male stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner, as well as director David O Russell, were in line to receive 9% back-end compensation, compared to 7% for Lawrence and Adams.

American Hustle was co-financed by Columbia Pictures, and was green-lit after Lawrence's The Hunger Games became a box office hit.

"Got a Steve Warren/Gretchen Rush call that it's unfair the male actors get 9% in the pool and Jennifer is only at 7pts," read one email from Columbia Pictures' Andrew Gumpert to Sony's Amy Pascal and Doug Belgrad, dated December 5, 2013.

James Caan’s ‘The Throwaways’ Caught In Hack Attack Crossfire

14 December 2014 1:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Aside from opening a can of worms that would keep Chris Packham busy for a week, the Sony hacking incident has claimed its first scalp in terms of a movie release. Action thriller The Throwaways stars James Caan and Sam Huntington, the latter of which plays a super hacker who is forced to work for the CIA. Huntington then turns the tables on his employers by hiring the fag end of the agency talent pool – the so-called “Throwaways” of the title. It was due to be released by Crackle, the online production arm of Sony Pictures Television, but recent events have led to the Dec 19th premiere being pulled. Though the studio is looking to get it out in January – “when they hope things calm down” – this is fairly unlikely given the current bonfire of the vanities fuelled by private e-mails circulated thus far. Promotional materials for the film are absent for the time being. »

In recent years he has done so with films like The Blind Side and Saving Mr. Banks, but now he's preparing to tell the origin story of the biggest fast food chain in the world. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hancock is now attached to direct a film titled The Founder, which will tell the story of how the restaurant chain McDonald's wound up being created.

McDonald's Movie 'The Founder' Gets 'Blind Side' Director

11 December 2014 10:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While most origin stories are reserved for superhero movies, the history behind fast food restaurant McDonald's will be getting its own big screen retelling in The Founder. John Lee Hancock, best known for his hit dramas Saving Mr. Banks and The Blind Side, will direct this tale of McDonald's rise as a fast food empire. Jeremy Renner and Don Handfield are producing.

Kroc saw franchise potential in the restaurant, and pulled the company from the brothers to create a billion-dollar business.

The script, written by Robert D. Siegel (Big Fan), is being compared to The Social Network and There Will Be Blood. The film doesn't have a set start date, »

The Blind Side’s John Lee Hancock To Direct McDonald’s Origin Movie The Founder

11 December 2014 8:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The rags-to-riches biopic has proven to be a crowd-pleasing template for movie gold. Tracing the origins of a noted person of interest as they ascend the ladder of success is a sure-fire way to capitalize on a business’s notoriety in the public domain. With The Social Network an example of the darker shades of corporate practice linked to Facebook, and another Steve Jobs biopic en route, the rise of the underdog movie still has a few miles left. Bearing that in mind, the next business earmarked for the big screen treatment is fast food giant, McDonald’s, in The Founder.

According to a report by THR, the director tasked with bringing the story of the globally recognized burger slingers to theatres is The Blind Side helmer, John Lee Hancock. In conjunction with FilmNation and The CombineJeremy Renner’s production outfit – he’s set to tell the story of »
