Screen Crush bitches about the long uneventful Part 1s of modern franchise culture as I've been bitching about forever. But as long as audiences keep buying tickets, why should Hollywood stop? They make double the money this way.

YouTube first TV spot for Jurassic World. It's mostly Chris Pratt & Bryce Dallas Howard's faces and you know what they look like. But a brief flash of dinosaurs, too.

Shailene Woodley celebrates 'Fault in Our Stars' but let's talk Laura Dern shall we?

20 November 2014 7:10 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — It's that time of year, when studios reunite cast and crew from some of their earlier releases to attract a little awards season spotlight. Today, 20th Century Fox had a swanky afternoon lunch at Craft to celebrate "The Fault in Our Stars." The film's premier awards player in the Best Actress race, Shailene Woodley, was on hand as was Ansel Elgort, screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, Laura Dern, producer Wyck Godfrey and the novel's author John Green. Most notably, you realize how important this film is to the studio and how proud they are of it when Jim Gianopulos, the Chairman and CEO, takes time out of his busy day to sit down for lunch with the cast and press on hand. "Fault" was a box office phenomenon earning over $304 million worldwide off a budget of just $12 million. Green joked with me that he felt almost »

Foursome: Bobby Bukowski talks about Rosewater, Infinitely Polar Bear, 99 Homes & Time Out of Mind

18 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Bobby Bukowski about a busy year of collaborating with four different filmmakers who each had a separate cinematic project…

One cannot accuse Bobby Bukowski of having a boring life as he went from studying Biochemistry with the intention of pursuing a medical career to a photographer’s assistant in Paris which resulted in him documenting a pilgrimage of sacred sites led by the Dalai Lama to being a bike messenger while obtaining his Master of Fine Arts degree to a cinematographer.  “It’s been a good life,” observes the native of New York City who has also taught at New York University TishAsia campus located in Singapore.  “The question that always arises from curious minds is, ‘Why do you do it that way?’  The academic query is a pertinent one.  “It’s good to remind oneself to throw everything up in the air and say, ‘What »

10 indie sci-fi films to look out for in 2015

17 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for some less mainstream sci-fi films in the year ahead? Then here's our list of 10 genre movies to look out for in 2015...

If you've been keeping an eye on next year's schedules, you'll probably already know about some of the major sci-fi films due for release in 2015. Ridley Scott will leave Matt Damon stranded on the red planet in The Martian. Colin Trevorrow will unleash a new breed of dinosaurs in Jurassic World. George Miller will be bringing us his belated Mad Max sequel Fury Road, Neill Blomkamp will show off his robot sci-fi comedy Chappie, and then, of course, there's Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But what about the smaller genre films, the ones that don't have the marketing budget of, say, Disney's Tomorrowland, or the brand recognition of Star Wars? Those are the kinds of films we're focusing on here: the lower budget, »

Watch: Michael Shannon Gets Weird In Video For Deerhoof's "Exit Only"

13 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This must be what it was like the first time someone decided to combine peanut butter and chocolate. Sure, it might not make the most obvious sense that indie weirdos Deerhoof and Michael Shannon go together, but now, we can't imagine them apart. The band has just dropped their latest album La Isla Bonita, and of course, the "Boardwalk Empire" star features in the video for "Exit Only." Because there would just be no other way. The concept for the video, directed by Vice Cooler, is pretty simple: Michael Shannon interrogates Michael Shannon with some destructive, mind-control like fury. And then Deerhoof guitarist Ed Rodriguez comes crashing through the wall, shoots off some serious sparks with some mad riffage, and then blood and flames and....hell, just watch the thing below. »

10 Producers to Watch: Campbell-Grobman Films

11 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Friends Lati Grobman and Christa Campbell came together as producing partners in 2011 as Campbell-Grobman Films after working as exec producers to help set up films such as Lionsgate’s “Leatherface 3D” and Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy “A Case of You,” which stars Justin Long, Sienna Miller and Brendan Fraser.

Grobman also was an exec producer on the Michael Shannon-Chris Evans crime drama “The Iceman” and James Cox’s indie dramedy “Straight A’s,” both of which co-star Campbell.

The duo scored with 2013’s “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which took in $47 million worldwide.

But don’t label them as horror queens.

“We’ve done a lot of different things,” says Campbell, whose acting credits include “Drive Angry,” “The Mechanic” and a fair amount of genre. “We were nominated for an Emmy for (documentary) ‘Brave Miss World,’ ” she adds, and their list also includes exec producing duties on “She’s Funny That Way, »

Ambitious Projects Mark Strong AFM Deals

9 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amid the profound changes in the movie business, the first half of the 35th American Film Market has been dominated by the tried-and-true — action, thrillers and sci-fi with A-list attachments — as the six major studios concentrate on mega-budget tentpoles.

No project was more ambitious than Foresight Unlimited’s $120 million sci-fier “Inversion” with director Scott Waugh making storyboard presentations and major territories (Asia, Australia, Benelux, Scandinavia, Spain) snapped up by the weekend.

“I think it’s great news that a picture of this dimension can come out of the indie sector,” said Foresight topper Mark Damon, who packaged “2 Guns” and “Lone Survivor.” “The indies are demonstrating that they can do this kind of movie.”

Lotus Entertainment brought Keanu Reeves and Lorenzo di Bonaventura to Santa Monica to meet with buyers on sci-fi pic “Replicas.” “Buyers have responded very well to our slate since these are all positioned to go wide,” said Lotus’ Bill Johnson. »

Week in Review: Marvel subpoenas Google for ‘Avengers’ trailer leak

8 November 2014 9:11 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Need more proof Marvel controls the world? This week the movie studio even made Google (Google! of all companies) do their bidding when Marvel issued a subpoena to investigate the identity of a Google user named “John Gazelle” who may have been responsible for the low-quality leak of Marvel’s trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. The subpoena alleges that “John Gazelle” may have uploaded the file to a Google Drive account, and they have now “commanded” Google to “produce at the time, date, and place set forth below the following documents, electronically stored information, or objects, and to permit inspection, copying, testing, or sampling of the material.”

Both Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter have copies of the court document. In it it’s clear that while the first request to produce documents was granted by the courts, Marvel was not granted the right to “permit entry onto the designated premises, »

Michael Shannon is Elvis to Kevin Spacey’s Nixon in ‘Elvis & Nixon’

6 November 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Elvis Presley has been portrayed by many actors over the decades since his death in 1977. That doesn’t make the idea of seeing Michael Shannon play the singer any less head-turningly odd. Pair him with Kevin Spacey as Richard M. Nixon and you might have something really… weird. The two actors have been cast in […]

This Elvis And Richard Nixon Biopic Just Hired The Best Possible Actors

6 November 2014 11:24 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The image above is a real moment in history, depicting the when the hip swinging singer and movie star Elvis Presley met the 37th president of the United States, Richard Milhous Nixon. And soon it'll be a movie starring Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey. Coming Soon reports Boardwalk Empire's Michael Shannon will play Presley to House of Cards star Kevin Spacey's Nixon in the docudrama Elvis & Nixon. The screenplay, penned by Hanala Sagal, Joey Sagal and Princess Bride star Cary Elwes, reportedly captures these two men--one a figure of pop culture, the other one of the most influential politicians of his time--at a moment when both were at the peak of their power, but fully aware of how short these heydays can be. Regarding the casting of Shannon and Spacey, producer Cassian Elwes said in an official statement, "After the enormous success of The Butler I have a »

Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon Will Play Nixon and Elvis in Elvis & Nixon

6 November 2014 10:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Cary Elwes has written a movie about that time Elvis met Richard Nixon, and now he's gotten Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey to star as two of the Top 10 Most Outstanding Men in America. Shannon will play Elvis and Spacey will play Nixon, and it's hard to say which casting will provide for more scenery-chewing: Shannon glammed up and rambling about "Communist brainwashing techniques," or Spacey giving a paranoid spin on his weaselly House of Cards performance. This movie is going to be a glorious mess, or it'll win all the Oscars. Either way, we're so excited, we've created this exclusive preview image. Pin it to your Pinterest! »

Kevin Spacey Returns To The White House As President Nixon For New Drama Elvis & Nixon

6 November 2014 9:13 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh from his power-mongering role on Netflix’s political drama House of Cards, Kevin Spacey has reportedly signed on to star in historical drama Elvis & Nixon as the titular president, while Man of Steel’s Michael Shannon is on board to play the King of Rock and Roll.

With Liza Johnson in the director’s chair, the film will recreate the famous meeting between the pair, which originally occurred on December 21st, 1970. On that date, the Mississippian music legend showed up at the White House and requested a meeting with the Potus in the Oval Office — such was the appeal of Mr. Presley in the early 70s that he even requested to be an undercover federal agent.

Either way, at this stage, only Shannon and Spacey have filled the lead roles, subsequently replacing Eric Bana and Danny Houston, who were on board for the project before it was repackaged. Now, »

After retiring from the CIA in the Coen Brothers' comedy Burn After Reading, the Oscar-nominated John Malkovich is heading back to the agency for a new thriller from director Michael Apted (The World is Not Enough, Chasing Mavericks). From the American film Market, Bloom (the company behind the gestating Elvis & Nixon starring Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey respectively) has just announced that Malkovich, along with Little Miss Sunshine star Toni Collete, has joined the cast of Unlocked, the CIA thriller that already has Noomi Rapace, Michael Douglas & Orlando Bloom attached to star. Read on! The film is already shooting, so it sounds like this film will actually make it to theaters, unlike many on sale at the Afm each year. Peter O'Brien ("Halo: Reach") wrote the script which focuses on a CIA interrogator (Rapace) who unwittingly provides information to terrorists and then must race against the clock to stop a biological warfare attack on London. »

6 November 2014 7:13 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

So here's a crazy-sounding film project with an amazing cast for us to keep our eye on. The movie is called Elvis & Nixon, and Michael Shannon (Man of Steel) has been cast as Elvis Presley, and Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns) will be playing President Richard Nixon.

This is some incredibly interesting casting, and just that alone is enough to get me excited about this film project. The movie is based on the fascinating true story about how Elvis's urgent request of Nixon. Here's the synopsis:

Two men at the height of their powers, conscious they could not stay on top forever, both ripped with fear of the inevitable, sharing one famous private moment in the Oval office.  Elvis & Nixon recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Michael Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, »
