2009: The Truffles – The HeyUGuys Awards

30 December 2009 2:32 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

With the proliferation of Top Tens and Best Of lists on the internet at this time of year we wanted to try something a little different.

2009 was an important year for the business of cinema; games were changed with the acquiescence of audiences to the notion of 3D, low budgets met with large returns, old franchises spawned reboots and rebakes with varying success, the British film industry remained strong and gave us some bright new stars in our sky.

We asked our writers to come up with an alternative set of awards which would honour those films, directors and actors who made 2009 such an enjoyable year. Strong emotions are rendered in strong language, be warned if words offend.

So, here now, I present to you our awards for 2009 – The Truffles.

Tracy

2009 meant, for me, the respectable return to sci-fi.  Star Trek, District 9, Moon and now Avatar showed that sci-fi »

Cameron Diaz smiled yesterday while spending her morning working on The Green Hornet in La. It's been a busy month for Cameron after her stint in Europe filming Knight and Day with Tom Cruise, though they wrapped production just in time for Christmas. Cameron was back with Seth Rogen to continue working on their action flick, decked out in the same dress she wore while with him in September. Their efforts won't be on the big screen until this time next year, but in the meantime check out the new trailer for her upcoming movie with Tom.

James McAvoy to Possibly Star in Ian Fleming Biopic

29 December 2009 9:01 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Pajiba reports that Palmstar Entertainment and Animus Films are developing a biopic of James Bond author Ian Fleming with James McAvoy attached to play the lead.  Currently titled Ian Fleming, the biopic would focus on the years that gave Fleming his inspiration to create the twelve novels and two story collections featuring MI6 super-spy James Bond.  Apparently, Fleming was just a playboy in his early days but his experiences in World War II changed his life and caused him to become the creator of the semi-autobiographical 007.

McAvoy sounds like a solid choice for this role.  He has the charisma to portray a playboy but perhaps with a little delusion that he’s as charming and as lethal as his fictional counterpart.  The actor has been keeping busy as he wraps production on Robert Redford’s The Conspirator, and is attached to Wanted 2 and to co-star with Seth Rogen in »

2010 movie preview: 15 films you probably didn’t know you should be excited for

29 December 2009 9:37 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

A few days back John made the rather excellent list of 15 films that are sure to get audience’s pulses racing with anticipation for next year. Yet away from the marketing hype, pre-release publicity and away from the A-List names there are a slew of movies that, whilst not overly commercially minded, look like they may just be delightful. Some might be sleeper hits, some might not. Either way here is a list of 15 films, five each from the U.S., Asia and Europe, you may not have heard of to look out for next year:

The United States

The Fighter

Perhaps tainted by Christian Bale’s lost lustre or director David O. Russell’s reputation, The Fighter is receiving much less attention than I initially envisioned. Mark Wahlberg is to star in the lead role of professional boxer “Irish” Micky Ward with Bale as his half brother. The Fighter »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

29 December 2009 7:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not »

Smith Gives In To Movie Censors Over A Couple Of Dicks

28 December 2009 5:36 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Director Kevin Smith has been forced to change the name of his new Bruce Willis cop comedy because studio bosses felt A Couple Of Dicks would lead to marketing issues.

The Clerks filmmaker wanted to use the controversial title for the forthcoming film, but changed his mind after learning commercials promoting the project would be banned from three of the top U.S. TV networks.

Smith, who encountered similar censorship issues with his 2008 Seth Rogen film Zack and Miri Make a Porno, admits it was a tough decision to make, and he likens the namechange - to Cop Out - to being castrated.

He tells EW.com, "Losing A Couple of Dicks was almost akin to losing my own d**k. It was a perfect buddy-cop movie comedy title.

"You couldn't say that title to somebody without a f**king smile crossing their face. But what I had gone through with Zack and Miri Make a Porno - 'porno' had become very problematic - it became tough for us to advertise (the film).

"Warner Bros. decided, 'Hey man, we'll call the networks and see if we're going to get any problems (with A Couple of Dicks as a title), months before the movie's ever going to come out.' The top three networks - CBS, ABC, NBC - said we can't run one of your spots before 9 o'clock."

Smith has credited bosses at Warner Bros. with fighting to keep his movie vision intact - but he realised the title had to go when his mum made him see sense.

He adds, "If I hadn't gone through Zack and Miri Make a Porno, I think I would have gotten my old-school f**king angry indie spirit, if you will: 'F**k it, we live or die by A Couple of Dicks, or I take my name off the picture!' But even my mum was like, 'I might go see Zack and Miri, but I would never go see Zack and Miri Make a Porno.'" »

Our 20 Most Anticipated Movies Of 2010

28 December 2009 8:18 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

As we come to the end of 2009, it’s time to look forward and put together our list of our most anticipated movies of 2010.

Last year could have been worse – 5 of our 10 most anticipated movies of 2009 turned out to live up to our expectations (including Watchmen, Up, and Star Trek), while the other five ranged from mediocre (Public Enemies) to downright disappointing (Terminator Salvation, Wolverine, Transformers 2). Of course “most anticipated” does not necessarily mean “movies we think are going to be awesome” – it’s “movies we hope are going to be awesome.”

 

This year the task was made a lot easier thanks to our senior editor Kofi Outlaw putting together Screen Rant’s 2010 movie preview, giving us a one-stop list from which to gather the biggies. While last year was a group effort, this year I’ve decided to pull rank and come up with the list myself, with »

The Best of the Decade: 2000-2009

23 December 2009 9:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A best of the decade list is an incredible thing to consider. The Aughts were ripe with imagination and originality. The past ten years also came jam packed with many new visionary directors that changed the cinematic landscape forever. Yet, at the same time, it was also a decade wrought with remakes, rip-offs, ten-year late sequels, and films based on preexisting toy properties, comic books, and amusement park rides. George Lucas offended almost everyone by dusting off his Star Wars mythos and adding copious amounts of CGI to it. And Batman, a caped figure in tights who last flourished in the trippy sixties, managed to crawl head and shoulders above the rest at the box office to be crowned king. Thus proving that the so-called "geek" or "fanboy" truly ruled the silver screen over the course of this tumultuous past decade. Today, we look at the ten films that ruled »

Jonah Hill Talks 21 Jump Street

21 December 2009 10:09 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jonah Hill, he of the hilarious group of actors that Apatow built, recently talked a smidgen about the "21 Jump Street" movie he's writing. The Internet had a sh*t fit about you doing 21 Jump Street because fans take the show so seriously. Are you surprised they don’t get that the show was inherently funny? Jonah Hill: Yeah, if you look at the opening episode of 21 Jump Street, you see a man looking at a picture of a cop holding a little boy’s hand, and you hear a crazy saxophone solo, and you pan up and it’s Johnny Depp looking at the picture playing the crazy saxophone solo. [Laughs.] We’re not even spoofing the movie. It’s not strictly comedic, either. We’re doing a full-on action movie, blowing shit up. Hmm I always wondered about the tone of this project. I knew it wouldn't full on »

Oscar Songs: Rude, Weird and Silly

20 December 2009 10:43 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

By Steve Pond

It could be one of the most awesome moments ever on an Academy Awards telecast, though the Academy and the show’s producers might not be inclined to agree.

Picture this: Some star (let’s say Seth Rogen, to get those twentysomething viewers) introduces the next nominated song. The lights illuminate Sacha Baron Cohen, clad in full regalia as the character of gay fashion reporter Bruno.

“I’ve written a song that I hope is going to bring za vorld together,” he sings … and then, one-by-one, he’s joined by the cast of pop music superstars »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Four

19 December 2009 11:50 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Georgia

Opens: 2010

Cast: Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Johnathon Schaech

Director: Renny Harlin

Summary: An American journalist, his cameraman, and a Georgian native get caught in the crossfire of the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008, and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial.

Analysis: A timely parable on war, or Hollywood propaganda filmmaking at its worst? Wherever it goes, especially in Europe and the former Soviet states, "Georgia" will cause a lot of talk and controversy as the incidents depicted are still so fresh in many's minds. Like all topics of the sort, it'll also have its strong supporters and detractors having opinions on the film long before a frame of footage is screened anywhere.

Shot on-location in Tbilisi, the project also marks a potential return to form for Finnish director Renny Harlin. Given the right material the skilled action director delivered three »

DVD Playhouse--December 2009

DVD Playhouse—December 2009

By

Allen Gardner

Public Enemies (Universal) Johnny Depp portrays legendary Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger in co- writer/director Michael Mann’s take on America’s first “Public Enemy Number One.” Like many big studio releases today, Public Enemies has it all: A-list talent before and behind the camera, but lacks a heart or soul that allows its audience to connect with it. Film plays out like a “true crime” TV show with re-enactments of famous events cast with top actors and shot by the best technicians in the business, with little, if any, character or story development to hold it together in between. A real disappointment from one of our finest filmmakers and finest actors. The lone standout: the great character actor Stephen Lang as a hard-eyed lawman who’s seen a lot, but manages to retain a tiny piece of his heart. For a better take on the same subject, »

'Twilight's' Robert Pattinson ends Johnny Depp's five-year reign as top star

14 December 2009 8:07 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

The Internet Movie Database has announced the Top Stars of 2009, which are determined by the site's unique visitors.

Johnny Depp may be the "Sexiest Man Alive," but Robert Pattinson is the most sought-after. Hunky "Twilight" franchise vampire Robert Pattinson was at the top of the list, ending the five-year domination by Johnny Depp. R-Patz was joined by on-screen lady love Kristen Stewart at No. 2. Who else made the list?

"Twilight: New Moon" stars dominated the Top 25, representing almost 25% of the list. In fact, "Twilight" stars made-up 40% of the Top 10 with Robert Pattinson (No. 1), Kristen Stewart (No. 2), Taylor Lautner (No. 5) and Dakota Fanning (No. 8). Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed also made the list, at No. 11 and No. 15 respectively.

We're a bit surprised Kellan Lutz isn't on there. He's just as hunky as Pattinson and Lautner. Also, who knew Dakota Fanning would be so high on the list? Notable absences: "Harry Potter" actors. »

Kieron’s Top 13 Films of 2009

14 December 2009 6:54 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

Looking back over the past twelve months highlights what a strange year this has been in cinema. Transformers 2 swept up at the box office, Terminator 3 nearly killed the franchise. (500) Days Of Summer’s incredible trailer resulted in an incredibly dissapointing film, Where The Wild Things Are dared to be even better than its Arcade Fire powered trailer suggested it would be. So, even though the year hasn’t been the best quality wise, there have been some absolutely terrific films released. In fact for every Blue, Antichrist or Dead Men Running there has been a film of  great quality to counter it to the degree I struggled wittling down my list of favourites to the standard ten entries. So I didn’t bother. Each of the films in this list debuted cinematically in the UK in 2009 with the exception of Cyborg, She which was a direct to DVD release. »

Danny McBride launches comedy prod'n firm

Danny McBride, directors David Gordon Green and Jody Hill and Warner exec Matt Reilly have formed comedy production house Rough House, setting up shop at Mandate Pictures.

The company, which has inked a two-year first-look deal with Mandate, has a focus to produce high-concept comedies.

McBride, Green and Hill went to the North Carolina School of the Arts together and have worked on each other’s movies and TV shows.

Hill co-wrote and directed “The Foot Fist Way,” which starred McBride, and the two teamed up again for “Observe and Report,” the Seth Rogen-Anna Faris comedy that was made by Warners.

It was while working with Warners that Hill and McBride met vp production Reilly, »
