For the second year in a row, “Iron Man” Robert Downey Jr. tops the Forbes annual list of highest earning actors with an estimated $75 million since June 2013, the same amount that Forbes estimated the year before.
Downey Jr.’s “Iron Man 3” crossed the billion dollar threshold in 2013. His turn in Jon Favreau’s “Chef” was more of a favor than a moneymaker, but he also appears the mystery drama “The Judge,” opening Oct. 13.
Downey Jr. received notable press for holding out on his contract for upcoming sequel “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” due to salary concerns. Though he has agreed to star in both “Age of Ultron” and an upcoming “The Avengers 3,” neither role has been confirmed.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the only other actor from last year’s Forbes top five to make this year’s top five again, placing second with $52 million. Johnson will star in “Hercules, »

Tate Taylor (The Help, Get On Up) will adapt, produce and direct this fun story about a divorcee from Detroit who convinced […] »
It looks like “Uncharted” is finally going to happen.
In an interview with Zap2it, he believes he could start filming “Uncharted” sometime during the beginning of 2015. The timing could be perfect, because Naughty Dog is planning to launch the next video “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End” in 2015.
"I want it to be a great actor," Gordon said to Zap2it during the TV summer press tour. »

A big screen adaptation of the hit video game Uncharted has been in development for years, but it looks like it's almost ready to go into production. Director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) revealed in an interview with Zap2it that the film will start shooting in 2015.
The project has been in development since early 2008, and directors David O. Russell and Neil Burger have both been attached to it at one time, but it looks like Gordon is the lucky charm that will bring it home. According to Gordon, the team "just got the script to a really good place."
He was asked when he expects the feature to start shooting, and he replied with the following:
"I think very early next year. That's the plan. That's like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie."
Gordon doesn't give much in terms of story, but he does say »

Amy Adams, best known for her comedic skills on the big screen, takes a more dramatic turn as the new face of Max Mara accessories. She goes high glam in the brand’s fall and spring campaign. Adams was a standout in the David O. Russell-directed comedy-drama “American Hustle,” and earned a best supporting actress nomination at the Oscars. Other Hollywood actresses such as Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart have all landed major campaigns for fashion brands. [...] »
Jumping from average romcom to average romcom with all the enthusiasm of a bored teenager slogging through their homework, Jennifer Aniston just keeps on trucking. Romcoms are all well and good for some, but ever since Friends wrapped up at the turn of the millennium her’s has been a career in slow but steady decline. To that effect, Life of Crime is actually a pretty pleasant surprise, with Aniston swapping her usual Girl Next Door role for that of a beleaguered housewife taken hostage by a trio of barely competent crooks. That’s not to say the film’s any good, but I’d much rather watch Aniston try (and largely fail) to work outside her usual range than have to sit through Along Came Polly 2: Rodolfo’s Revenge.

Harrison Ford is getting old, and Lucasfilm is still struggling to find ways to keep the Indiana Jones franchise going with or without the actor, but is there a new intrepid explorer already on the scene? Columbia Pictures certainly seems to think it has found one in Nathan Drake, as the studio appears to be moving full steam ahead with an adaptation of Uncharted, the video-game franchise in which that character stars.
A few filmmakers have come aboard and later departed the project, including Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell, Divergent helmer Neil Burger and This is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, but now it appears that Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) has been locked in. While recently speaking with Zap2It, Gordon revealed:
“I think very early next year. That’s the plan. That’s like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie… »

An Uncharted movie has been in development for years. Fans of the video game series have been eager to see the adventurous story of Nathan Drake come to the screen, and a few different filmmakers have tried to get the project off the ground. David O. Russell was attached to direct for a while, then eventually dropped out. Neil Burger (Divergent) flirted with the pic as well, but he too fell by the wayside. Even Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were approached to pen an adaptation, but they subsequently declined. Finally, earlier this year, Columbia Pictures tapped Horrible Bosses and The King of Kong director Seth Gordon to take the helm. Gordon hasn't departed the project yet so things appear to be going smoothly, and in fact the filmmaker recently revealed that the plan is to start filming early next year. More after the jump.

The long awaited Uncharted movie is still alive, so says director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, King Of Kong). In fact, he has revealed plans to start filming early next year! As a big fan of the games, I’ve been intrigued by the progress (or lack thereof) behind the scenes of this movie. David O. Russell was attached to direct at one point, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were approached to write the script but declined, and I shit you not there was even a crazy story about Joe Pesci »

Sony’s developing Uncharted video game movie went through a couple of directors – David O. Russell (American Hustle) and Neil Burger (Divergent) to be exact – before it found its new captain, in Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief helmer Seth Gordon. The plan, according to the filmmaker, is for him to direct an episode or two for the comedy series Marry Me and The Goldbergs – two shows where Gordon also gets executive producer credit – before he focuses on getting Nathan Drake’s big screen debut ready for production by 2015.
Gordon told Zap2it (via IGN) that he doesn’t expect the cameras to start rolling on Uncharted until “very early” in 2015, but also that that start date is basically tomorrow by Hollywood ...

Sony's adaptation of it's popular video game franchise from Naughty Dog has had a rough time getting to the big screen. It's cycled through a couple directors, been delayed and we haven't heard much about it in a long time. However, with a new video game announced (A Thief's End), the film's current director, Seth Gordon, is confident that they'll begin rolling cameras early next year. Come inside to check out all he had to say about the upcoming project!
Zap2It got the chance to talk with Seth Gordon about the project and how he's coming along with Uncharted in the midst of working on a pair of TV shows and the other "irons" he has in the fire:
"I'm doing several of these ['Marry Me' episodes] here this summer. 'Goldbergs' too," Gordon tells Zap2it while promoting "Marry Me" at the 2014 summer TV press tour. "I tried to do a chunk at the beginning, »

Somehow, the 2015 Oscar race is already looking almost as promising as this fall’s. David O. Russell will be reteaming with his Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle star Jennifer Lawrence for the biopic Joy, Alejandro González Iñárritu will finally unveil his Tom Hardy/Leonardo DiCaprio revenge thriller The Revenant, Steven Spielberg will be in the mix with an untitled Cold War thriller set to star Tom Hanks and Scott Cooper is also set to release his Whitey Bulger pic Black Mass, which stars Johnny Depp and Joel Edgerton. Now, we’ve got another exciting addition to the latter half of 2015 – Martin Scorsese’s Silence is being tentatively planned for release next November.
After years in development as one of Scorsese’s dream projects, Silence is finally gearing up to shoot later this year, and Paramount is gunning for U.S. distribution rights. Should Paramount land the movie, as seems likely, »

Geez, we're well over a year away from even thinking about the 2015 Oscar campaign and already the competition is looking fierce. David O. Russell's "Joy" and Alejandro González Iñárritu's "The Revenant" are already dated, with plenty more contenders to come, including a picture from a directorial legend. Martin Scorsese's forever brewing dream project "Silence" is finally going to shoot this year, and Paramount are in talks to pick up the U.S. rights for the drama, with plans for a November 2015 release date. Based on the book by Shusaku Endo, the story will follow two 17th-century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor and to spread the gospel of Christianity. Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, Ken Watanabe and Adam Driver are all lined up for roles, and production was at one time supposed to begin this month, though it's »

While many are eagerly anticipating director Alejandro González Iñárritu’s excellent-looking Birdman, which hits theaters this October, the filmmaker is already busy prepping his next feature, The Revenant. The Babel director has Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, and Will Poulter set to lead the story of an 1820s fronterisman who is mauled by a bear during a fur trapping expedition, robbed, and left for dead, only to recover and set out to exact revenge on those who betrayed him. Now 20th Century Fox has staked out a prime December 25, 2015 release date for the pic, where it will square off against Mission: Impossible 5 and director David O. Russell’s next film Joy. Additionally, Iñárritu has some very ambitious plans for the upcoming Revenant shoot, which is scheduled to be quite lengthy. More after the jump. According to the Calgary Herald (via The Playlist), Iñárritu has scheduled an 80 day shoot for The Revenant, »

It was revealed on Friday there was some trouble with the financing on Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's The Revenant as Worldview Entertainment backed out of financing the pic and 20th Century Fox was unwilling to pick up the whole tab. Now Megan Ellison and her Annapurna Pictures has stepped in to help finance the project, which is now set for a December 25 release. The film finds DiCaprio playing Hugh Glass, a 19th century fur trapper who is mauled by a grizzly bear, left for dead and then robbed. When he survives against all odds, he sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on his betrayers in this captivating and inspiring story based on the Michael Punke novel, "The Revenant: A Novel of Revenge." Tom Hardy and Will Poulter are set to co-star. Reporting from the Calgary Herald (via The Playlist) says the plan is to shoot for a whopping 80 days, »

So, no more problems then? It was only on Friday when yellow cards (sorry, still suffering from World Cup fever) were being thrown at Alejandro González Iñárritu's "The Revenant," which found a major financial backer pulling out, and some apparent concerns over the director's desire to shoot in sequence. But it looks like Megan Ellison's intervention has saved the day, as the movie now has a release date. Box Office Mojo reveals the gritty movie will arrive on December 25, 2015 in limited release (and wide January 8th, 2016), so might as well start adjusting your future Oscar pool way early. To put it in perspective, this will be opening against "Mission: Impossible 5" and David O. Russell's "Joy" starring Jennifer Lawrence—now that's confidence. And why shouldn't Fox be feeling good? They've now got Ellison involved, and two major movie stars—Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy—to tell the story about a 19th century fur. »

Oscar Chart Note: I'm experiencing some coding problems with the charts so I apologize for the update delays. Until it's fixed, please to enjoy this hypothetical discussion as we begin our Halfway Mark Review...
Happy July! We're now officially done with the first half of the year. There are Many films to come including the bulk of Oscar contenders given Hollywood's preferred release patterns. But that doesn't mean the film year hasn't already delivered enormous pleasure. All conscientous Oscar voters, cinephiles, and critics ought to keep a list so they aren't tricked into believing that the thing they saw 5 minutes ago is the only thing worth voting for six months from now.
Which naturally begs the question: If the voting was sprung on everyone right now, which films would AMPAS go for? It's worth jotting them down because they have a head start and they'd be smart to capitalize on it somehow. »

“Are you happy?” the woman asks her husband midway through Paul Mazursky’s “Blume in Love” (1973), to which he replies, “I’m just not miserable.” It is a flashback to earlier, relatively happier times in the busted-up marriage of the divorce lawyer Blume (George Segal) and his wife, Nina (Susan Anspach). But one can find the same scene or its close equivalent in most of Mazursky’s 15 feature films, which time and again centered on small-time American dreamers striving to feel a little less miserable in their lives.
The time was the early 1970s — that much-mythologized moment in Hollywood cinema — and Mazursky was among the directors whose work most embraced the new personal and sexual freedoms then taking hold in American culture and American movies. Divorce and adultery were laissez-faire subjects in his films when they were still taboo around the water cooler. Four years before “Blume,” his debut feature, »

Sure, it would be easy to rattle off all sorts of movie titles that feature the name of colors. Go ahead and knock yourself out: The Pink Panther, Red Dawn, Yellow Submarine, Purple Rain, Blue Velvet, Goldfinger, etc. The listing seems rather endless. However, can one come up with color-contained movie titles that also carry some messaging of substance and contemplation? Maybe films such as Fried Green Tomatoes or Steel Magnolias are color-coated entries that carries some relevance in its messaging about feminine empowerment for instance. In Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color and Substance let us look are the leading selections that have both color (in title) and substance (in thematic forethought) attached to its skin. Hey, maybe one can make a case for Pink Flamingos but The Blue Lagoon might be stretching things a bit…don’t you think? The Rainbow Coalition: Top 10 Movie Titles with Color »
