Electric sparks to Disappear

16 April 2014 7:09 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment has picked up all international rights to SXSW audience award winner Before I Disappear and will commence sales in Cannes.

The announcement comes as sales agents scramble to assemble fresh line-ups for the Croisette at a time when new product is thin on the ground.

Before I Disappear director Shawn Christensen based the film on his 2013 Academy Award-winning live action short Curfew and stars alongside Fatima Ptacek, Emmy Rossum, Paul Wesley, Ron Perlman and Richard Schiff.

ICM Partners and Verve represent North American rights to the story of a man who must look after his niece on a night when he becomes embroiled in a fight between his two employers.

Aaron Paul's hair steals the show in new 'Decoding Annie Parker' trailer

10 April 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Months after the end of "Breaking Bad," Aaron Paul is dealing with cancer again, but this time there won't be any meth, guns or chemistry. But there will be plenty of hair care products.  With Paul starring alongside Helen Hunt and Samantha Morton, "Decoding Annie Parker" looks to be an eccentric, inspirational true story about conquering disease. Morton plays a free spirit diagnosed with breast cancer, who works with a radical geneticist (Hunt) to prove that the disease can be inherited. But, honestly, the plot takes a backseat to Paul's luscious locks. Throughout the video, he sports several different 'dos, including a very long, very soft-looking hippie hair. In another scene, Paul models a short, punky coiffure that looks borrowed from Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong.  Watch the trailer here: "Annie" also stars Rashida Jones, Bradley Whitford, Alice Eve, Richard Schiff, Maggie Grace, Chris Mulkey and Corey Stoll. It »

Trailer For ‘Decoding Annie Parker’ Starring Helen Hunt, Aaron Paul & Samantha Morton

10 April 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A new trailer for Steven Bernstein new film, Decoding Annie Parker, has been released. The upcoming drama stars Samantha Morton, Helen Hunt and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul.

The film focuses on two incredible women who battle to understand the genetic links to breast cancer. Loosely based on the story of cancer survivor Annie Parker and geneticist Mary-Claire King, the film focuses on the journey of these two women in discovering the BRCA1 gene mutation, which transforms understanding and treatment of certain types of breast cancer. It was the understanding of this gene mutation which led Angelina Jolie to release a heartfelt letter in the New York Times, which confessed her personal battle with the gene.

The film has already received positive reviews and awards, Samantha Morton won Best Actress at The Seattle International Film Festival and Bernstein also won The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Feature Film Award at The Hamptons International Film Festival. »

Superman vs. Batman cast grows by three

4 April 2014 1:48 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With the movie hotting cinemas in 2016, the cast is still coming together for Superman vs. Batman, and Warner Bros. have announced a trio of new cast members, with Holly Hunter, Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of an Empire, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Tao Okamoto (The Wolverine) signing on for the long awaited meeting of The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel. But don't start speculating on which DC Comics characters they could be playing, as they have been revealed to be playing roles created specially for the movie. Now, I don't see Warner Bros. creating new super heroes for the movie, especially considering they have an entire back catalogue of comics characters they are doing nothing with, so I wouldn't be surprised if they have ties to the army, The Daily Planet, Lex Corp, or, heck, even Wayne Enterprises. I can't shake the feeling Hunter will take over »

Greatest TV Pilots: A Strong, Confident Start for The West Wing

24 March 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The West Wing “Pilot”

Written by Aaron Sorkin

Directed by Thomas Schlamme

Originally aired September 22nd 1999 on NBC

It’s hard to argue that The West Wing isn’t Aaron Sorkin’s most successful television show. It ran for eight seasons (five more than his second longest series), outlasting even Sorkin himself (who left after the fourth season), on network TV at a time when the bar for ratings success was much higher than it is now. It racked up 26 Emmy wins in that time, including four consecutive Outstanding Drama Series awards from 2000-2003. And it arguably represents the last great drama of the pre-Sopranos era (even though it ran concurrently with The Sopranos for most of its run). Most importantly, in terms of its success, its setting proved the perfect vehicle for Sorkin’s writing. He consistently fills his shows with smart people, extremely dedicated to their jobs, who »

SXSW: Before I Disappear, Cesar Chavez Take Top Audience Awards

15 March 2014 12:18 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I managed to screen 14 movies in four days at the South By Southwest film festival this year. Two were fantastic. Most were great. Some were below average. And only one of the bunch was downright unwatchable. Somehow, the worst film I screened managed to win the top Audience Award, which was announced Saturday afternoon in Austin. That would be Shawn Christensen.s Before I Disappear, an insufferable redemption drama written by, directed by and starring Christensen. A triple threat in every sense of the word, Christensen plays a suicidal loser roped into helping his alienated sister (Emmy Rossum) as she deals with her own legal problems. The feature length film is an expansion of Christensen.s Oscar-winning short, Curfew. I have no idea what people see in this concept. Richard Schiff, Fatima Ptacek and the usually great Ron Perlman . who also snoozed through the similarly disappointing 13 Sins at SXSW . co-star. »

SXSW Directorial Debuts To Watch: 'The Mend,' 'Before I Disappear' And 'We'll Never Have Paris'

6 March 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Three of the most anticipated SXSW films mark three directors’ feature film debuts, The Mend, Before I Disappear and We’ll Never Have Paris.

The Mend

The Mend, from director John Magary is featured in the Narrative Feature Competition. Only eight films were selected to premiere at SXSW, out of 1,324 submissions.

One night in Harlem, sour, aging Mat reunites with his younger brother Alan, just before Alan heads out for a long-planned vacation with his live-in girlfriend Farrah. Only days later, much sooner than expected, Alan returns home from his vacation to find his apartment commandeered by Mat, Mat’s girlfriend and Mat’s girlfriend’s son. As doors slam and the power gives out and the threads of family fray, a mystery lingers: why has Alan returned home without Farrah,” reads the official description.

The Mend, starring Josh Lucas as Mat, Stephen Plunkett as Alan, Sarah Steele, Leo Fitzpatrick and Mickey Sumner, »

Watch 'House of Cards' 'West Wing' opening credits treatment

4 March 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

First there was the "Full House of Cards" mash-up you never knew you wanted, then the brilliant (and on-the-nose) "Walking Dead" version of the "House of Cards" opening credits.

Now a creative YouTuber named Wayne Wolfe has made a "West Wing" version of the "House of Cards" opener (above), which is not only delightful because there could not be two politically themed shows that are more different, but also because Wolfe takes care to make some funny matchups based on where he puts the "HoC" actors in the credits.

Derek Cecil is Rob Lowe, which is totally appropriate because Seth Grayson is like the evil Sam Seaborn. Robin Wright is Stockard Channing (natch), and Mahershala Ali is Dule Hill, which is a little ... obvious since their characters actually occupy very different roles on their respective shows.

Nathan Darrow would have made a better Hill, but he's Janel Moloney, which is pretty funny, »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #100. Michael Cuesta’s Kill the Messenger

20 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Kill the Messenger

Director: Michael Cuesta

Writer: Peter Landesman

Producers: Pamela Abdy, Naomi Despres, Jeremy Renner, Scott Stuber

U.S. Distributor: Focus Features

Cast: Jeremy Renner, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Sheen, Michael K. Williams, Robert Patrick, Ray Liotta, Barry Pepper, Andy Garcia, Paz Vega, Rosemarie DeWitt, Tim Blake Nelson, Oliver Platt, Jena Sims, Lucas Hedges, Richard Schiff, Yul Vazquez

We know him as the director behind indie nuggets such as L.I.E., hotel room splendor of 12 and Holding and more recently, Roadie, so after a mostly low-budget indie filmography Michael Cuesta cross over into bigger budget big leagues is due to a successful stint on Homeland. Kill the Messenger sounds like compelling material, and sports and impressive ensemble cast, and we’re banking that visually it’ll pay dividends with cinematographer Sean Bobbitt who is currently at the top of his game.

Visual Effects Society Awards: ‘Gravity’ Soars, ‘Frozen’ Sparkles

12 February 2014 8:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Visual Effects Society proved that “Gravity” is causing as much buzz among vfx pros as it is among worldwide audiences.

By the time the pic collected the award for visual effects in a visual effects-driven motion picture, the org’s equivalent of best picture, it had already collected five of the six awards it was nominated for. It finished with six kudos, with star Sandra Bullock in attendance as a presenter and director Alfonso Cuaron an honoree.

Gravity” just proved to great a force to overcome, even for such highly regarded vfx pictures as “Pacific Rim” and “Iron Man 3.  Only “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” was able to beat out “Gravity” for a feature film vfx category, as its eponymous dragon beat out the animated George Clooney in “Gravity” for top animated character in a live-action feature.

'Once Upon a Time' adds Eric Lange: 5 more 'Lost' alums the show should consider

5 February 2014 8:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The parallels between "Once Upon a Time" and "Lost" are many: Both are set in a magical, mysterious location; there is a similar storytelling format using both present-day actions and flashbacks; and there are several actors in common. It's no wonder, with "Ouat" co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis having executive produced "Lost" for several seasons.

Now the Storybrooke/Fairytale Land universe is gaining another "Lost" face in the form of Eric Lange. E! Online reports that Lange has been cast as the young Prince Leopold, the man who will grow up to be King Leopold, Snow White's father -- kudos on the resemblance between Lange and Richard Schiff (above), who plays the older Leopold.

Lange was a part of "Lost's" fifth season as Stuart Radzinsky, the Dharma Initiative's head of research at the Flame station. He becomes the fifth "Lostie" to appear on "Once Upon a Time," along with Emilie de Ravin, »

Mom: Allison Janney talks new sitcom, The West Wing and air guitar

3 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"I'd been looking to try this format for a long time," Alison Janney replies when asked why she's decided to turn her hand to sitcom. "I thought it combined every single element of what I've trained for as an actor - starting out in theatre, working in front of a live audience, then doing films and hour television.

"The half-hour comedy schedule appealed to me and this particular comedy being helmed by Chuck Lorre, I knew that he had intentions to make this a slightly different half-hour in terms of the subject matter we were going to be dealing with."

Janney stars in Mom - a new comedy from hit-maker Chuck Lorre, the man behind Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and many more - and she has nothing but good things to say about Lorre ("He's kind of a genius") or her co-star and on-screen offspring »

Bryan Singer Talks Man of Steel and Reactions to Superman Returns

2 February 2014 1:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Man of Steel premiered this past summer, the last time we saw Superman on the big screen was in director Bryan Singer's 2006 adventure Superman Returns. The director recently conducted an interview with Empire Magazine, where he spoke about his reaction to Man of Steel for the first time, while revealing why he didn't cast Henry Cavill as his Superman, when he was up for the role with the actor who eventually won the part, Brandon Routh.

When asked about his thoughts on Man of Steel, the director revealed how impressed he was about the movie, although there are things he would have done differently.

"I am in awe of the world building and the scope of that picture. It's tough for me. I'm not a critic and it starts to get into a weird thing where one director is talking about another director. I know how hard it is to make a movie, »
