James Gunn says the Thanos scene in Guardians of the Galaxy was the hardest scene to write

19 December 2014 1:39 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a chat with Vulture, James Gunn has been speaking about the challenges of bringing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy to the screen, and in particular the scene he found most difficult to write – the one featuring the Mad Titan Thanos…

“There’s pressure with Thanos because you’re setting up this gigantic character that, in one way, isn’t really a part of your movie,” states Gunn. “His presence doesn’t really serve being in Guardians, and having Thanos be in that scene was more helpful to the Marvel Universe than it was to Guardians of the Galaxy. I always wanted to have Thanos in there, but from a structural standpoint, you don’t need him. So that’s part of it, and then part of it is the fact that you’re setting up this incredibly powerful character, but you don’t want to belittle the actual antagonist of the film, »

'Star Trek 3' to Be More Like 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?

16 December 2014 1:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures is still moving forward with Star Trek 3, despite parting ways with director Roberto Orci earlier this month. No reason was given for the departure, but the filmmaker revealed last week that he is still involved with the sequel as they search for a new director. A new report from Badass Digest reveals that Roberto Orci may have parted ways with Paramount because the studio wanted to make the sequel more like Marvel's current box office hit Guardians of the Galaxy.

The site reports that there are two different stories floating around about Roberto Orci's last days on Star Trek 3, one is that he quit because he refused to address the studio's notes on the script, which was also dumped, and the other is that Paramount actually pulled the plug on the project a month ago, engaging in talks with other filmmakers before officially announcing that Roberto Orci has stepped away. »

Paramount Wants Star Trek 3 to be like Guardians Of The Galaxy

16 December 2014 9:49 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yesterday we learned that Paramount Pictures is looking to hire one of these five directors to direct Star Trek 3Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious), and Duncan Jones (MoonWarcraft).

Out of those directors I'd love to see Jones take on the project, but he's probably going to be busy developing Warcraft. Wyatt is the next best choice, and perhaps he's the studio's favorite as he just made The Gambler with Mark Wahlberg for them. Thanks to Badass Digest, we have some information on why the previously attached director, Roberto Orci, is no longer attached. One of those reasons was because the studio wanted Star Trek 3 to be more like Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and Orci wasn't on board with the idea so he walked. 

The site reports that Orci »

David Oyelowo joins Lupita Nyong’o in Brad Pitt-produced 'Americanah'

16 December 2014 5:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last year, Lupita Nyong’o stepped out from obscurity to wow crowds in "12 Years a Slave" and earn her first Oscar. 12 months later, supporting actor workhorse David Oyelowo is taking a similar jump, earning rave reviews for his role as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in "Selma." The unexpected common link between the two performances? Brad Pitt and his production banner Plan B. Now, according to Variety, Pitt will play matchmaker for this critically acclaimed pair: They’ll star together in Plan B’s new indie film "Americanah." Based on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel of the same name, the story follows a Nigerian immigrant couple surviving in their new home and struggling to keep their relationship together. Pitt is producing, along with Nyong’o and Andrea Calderwood. According to Variety, after having a positive experience working with Plan B on "Selma," "Oyelowo jumped at the opportunity to board another project they were producing. »

List of 5 Directors up for Star Trek 3 Includes Duncan Jones

15 December 2014 9:54 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Since Roberto Orci stepped away from the director's chair for Star Trek 3, we've heard a rumor that Edgar Wright was wanted for the job. Then Star Trek: First Contact director Jonathan Frakes threw his name into the hat hoping to get the job. Now we have a list of five directors that are currently in the running to take on the challenge. Those directors include: Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), Justin Lin (Fast & Furious), and Duncan Jones (MoonWarcraft).

Out of this current list, which comes from Deadline, my favorite choice is Duncan Jones. I think he's the most talented of the bunch, and could really bring something new, fun, and unique to the franchise that none of those other directors could bring. My second choice would be Wyatt, because he did do a great job »

2015 Critics Choice Awards Nominations Led by 'Birdman' with 13 Nominations

15 December 2014 7:11 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Birdman is clearly a favorite this awards season, at least when it comes to nominations as it once again tops a list of nominees, this time the 2015 Critics Choice Awards as it leads the field with 13 total nominations followed by The Grand Budapest Hotel, which continues to surge this awards season with 11 nominations, and Boyhood with eight. Full disclosure, I'm part of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca), which nominates and votes on these awards, but I'm a little nervous my nominees this year weren't counted as I mistakenly missed the deadline by a few hours thinking it was on Saturday, not Friday. Oops, though looking at these nominations it doesn't seem as if it would have mattered. For example, I don't see Locke anywhere, Carrie Coon (Gone Girl) didn't get a supporting actress nomination, A Most Wanted Man didn't get an adapted screenplay nomination, no nomination for The Raid 2 in Best Action Movie, »

‘Birdman,’ ‘Grand Budapest’ Top Critics Choice Awards Nominations

15 December 2014 6:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With 13 bids, “Birdman” led nominations for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, followed by 11 for “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a one-two punch for Fox Searchlight. “Boyhood” followed with eight.

The noms for Angelina Jolie (“Unbroken”) and Ava DuVernay (“Selma”) mean that two of the six director contenders are women. Among the films earning more attention than in this year’s previous kudos announcements: “Interstellar” (seven); “Guardians of the Galaxy” (five) and “Unbroken” (four).

The voting, by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn.,  is one of the more reliable Oscar predictors, in terms of winners. The group has matched the eventual Oscar-winning best pic in 12 of the last 15 years.

As for nominations, the Ccma are a good guide for what’s popular in awards conversations, but several factors limit the noms’ powers as an Oscar omen.

For one thing, this group cites six contenders in most categories, compared to five from the Academy. »

‘Birdman’, ‘Budapest’ And ‘Boyhood’ Get Key Oscar Boost To Lead Critics’ Choice Movie Award Nominations; Jolie Rebounds From Globe Snub

15 December 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Continuing its romp through the critics kudos this awards season, Fox Searchlight’s Birdman drew a whopping 13 nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. In fact it’s a big day for Fox in general as Searchlight’s March release, The Grand Budapest Hotel was remembered to the tune of 11 nominations, while big Fox scored 6 nominations with Gone Girl. All three compete for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and significant acting nods. This is a big boost in particular for Budapest, coming on the heels of its SAG nod for Outstanding Cast as well as four key Golden Globe nominations.  Usually films opening as early as March are largely forgotten when it comes to Best Picture attention, but Budapest could be a rare exception in recent years if this triumph for the Wes Anderson comedy is repeated at the Oscars.  The last film that opened as early as March, »

Critics' Choice Movie Awards nominations crystallize the Oscar season so far

15 December 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association's (Bfca*) annual announcement of nominees is particularly informative for one key reason: it's a broad assessment of the year from a vast voting body. The only two such events prior to the end of the year tend to be this and the Screen Actors Guild's nominations announcement, each setting the early stage in terms of what seems to be appealing across a wide spectrum. Other guilds then add to that equation in January. So where did the Bfca's chips end up this season? For starters, in what has become a trend for critics groups that provide a nominations stage, Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman" led overall with 13 mentions. And in what has also become a trend with critical precursors, Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel" (11) and Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" (8) were right up there, too, making starkly clear what the critical darlings are this season. »

From "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.Ca"  take another look @ the good, the bad and the ugly in Marvel Studios' "Guardians Of The Galaxy":   

Michael Stevens for "The Good" : 

"As a comic book collector with several near mint runs of Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy" (2008), there is no doubt I am a 'fan' of this fun, ambitious and impressive-looking film...

What is Good : 

"Art direction and production design.

"'Star-Lord' (Chris Pratt) taking out bad guys while hooked on a feeling.

"'Moonage Daydream' by David Bowie applied to a futuristic landscape.

"Michael Rooker as 'Yondu', popping out of the screen in 3D looking like a blue-skinned 'Merle' from 'The Walking Dead'.

"'Rocket Raccoon' (Bradley Cooper) as cute as a dancing dog.

"Zoe Saldana as 'Gamora'...

...either in a fighting or seductive mood.

"'Groot' and his Et-like, spiritual  ability to channel higher powers.
