Emerald City Comes Calling In First Promo For NBC’s Fantasy Series

28 November 2016 7:22 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nipping at the heels of last week’s trailer reveal, NBC has now debuted the very first promo for Emerald City, one which reimagines a classic in rather spectacular fashion.

It’s a classic yarn that can be traced all the way back to L. Frank Baum’s original novel series, which began life with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900. Back then, Baum’s spellbinding work remained the best-selling children’s book for two years straight, and through time various directors and storytellers have tapped into that legacy, resulting in the likes of Sam Raimi’s lavish prequel Oz the Great and Powerful and 1939’s The Wizard of Oz, arguably the most well-known adaptation of the lot.

Now, it’s almost time for Emerald City to join that bracket. Hailing from showrunner David Schulner (Do No Harm), there was a time early on in development where it looked certain »

‘Emerald City’ Trailer: NBC’s Dark and Gritty ‘Wizard of Oz’ Series Looks Insane

24 November 2016 9:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

L. Frank Baum’s children’s book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” has inspired countless film and theatrical adaptations, including Victor Fleming’s iconic 1939 film starring Judy Garland. Now, a dark, gritty TV series based on the world of Oz will finally the small screens early next year. The series “Emerald City” follows an older version of Dorothy Gale, played by Adria Arjona (“True Detective”), who’s transported by tornado with a K9 police dog into Oz, a land of competing realms, magic and bloodshed. The series co-stars Vincent D’Onofrio (“Full Metal Jacket”) as The Wizard, Oliver Jackson-Cohen (“Dracula”), Ana Ularu (“Outbound”), Joely Richardson (“Nip/Tuck”) and more. Watch a trailer for the series below.

First Trailer For NBC’s Emerald City Says There’s No Place Like Oz

24 November 2016 8:57 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From lavish prequel Oz the Great and Powerful to the beloved Wizard of Oz of 1939, L. Frank Baum’s fantasy classic has inspired a great many adaptations, but none quite like NBC’s Emerald City.

Fraught with development woes at the outset, for the longest time it looked certain that the network had pulled the plug on its dark reimagining for good, only to pull a U-turn a few months later with a straight-to-series order. David Schulner (Do No Harm, The Playboy Club) was brought in to write and executive produce the ten-episode season which, as you can glean from today’s shimmering reveal trailer, takes more than a few cues from HBO’s Game of Thrones.

With a cast toplined by Adria Arjona (Person of Interest) as Dorothy Gale, Vincent D’Onofrio as the Wizard and Oliver Jackson-Cohen as the spineless Scarecrow, Emerald City certainly isn’t lacking in potential, »

‘Emerald City’ Trailer: ‘Wizard of Oz’ Meets ‘Game of Thrones’ on NBC

23 November 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

If you’ve ever watched The Wizard of Oz and wished it played more like a low-rent version of Game of Thrones — or, conversely, if you’ve ever watched Game of Thrones and thought it could use some Wizard of Oz insanity — then Emerald City might be for you. The new NBC series from Tarsem Singh reimagines L. Frank Baum’s classic […]

23 November 2016 2:41 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Since HBO’s juggernaut hit series debuted in 2011, numerous “[X], but like Game of Thrones” concepts have been tossed around by TV creators on the regular. Few of them have been made so far, but NBC’s upcoming Tarsem Singh-directed drama Emerald City is gunning for the label. A dark new take on the Land of Oz fantasy setting created by L. Frank Baum that began with his The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, the show stars Vincent D’Onofrio as the Wizard and Adria Arjona as an older… »

The Lrm Interview: Lily Collins on Warren Beatty's Rules Don’t Apply

21 November 2016 3:24 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

As the daughter of a pop legend like Phil Collins, one imagines that actress Lily Collins has had to work extra hard to get out from under her father’s shadow, and she’s done that by starring in films like Tarsem’s Mirror Mirror, The Blind Side and genre films Priest and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bone.

None of those roles could have prepared her for playing Marla Mabrey in Warren Beatty’s new movie Rules Don’t Apply. Marla is a virginal Christian ingénue that’s been brought to Hollywood by the enigmatic Howard Hughes (Beatty) but before she has a chance at meeting her benefactor, Marla ends up bonding with her driver Frank, as played by Alden Ehrenreich (aka the new Han Solo).  It creates a strange triangle between the three of them and their relationship to Hughes, but it’s a great return for Beatty »

Relativity Still Planning ‘Immortals 2’, But Does Anyone Want to See It?

15 November 2016 2:13 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Tarsem Singh‘s Immortals isn’t talked about much these days, but it was a decent hit in its time. With a worldwide box office total of $226 million, the 2011 fantasy actioner is still Relativity’s highest-grossing release to date. And now it’s headed where all successful films go these days — into sequel territory. Relativity Studios is […]

Newswire: Disney is making a live-action Snow White, since we haven’t had one in a while

31 October 2016 4:04 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Back in 2012, two movies based on the classic Snow White fairy tale were released: Rupert SandersSnow White And The Huntsman and Tarsem Singh’s Mirror Mirror. Surprisingly, though, neither of them were produced by Disney, which has spent the last few years mining its old animated hits for live-action gold—most recently by announcing that Guy Ritchie will direct an Aladdin movie. Seeing as how Disney missed out on that last wave of Snow White movies, it has now decided to correct that error by announcing a live-action Snow White movie of its very own.

As reported by Variety, this new version will “expand upon the story and music” from the original animated film, with screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson (The Girl On The Train) writing the script and La La Land’s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul writing new songs. Weirdly, it’s unclear if this movie ...

The Art of the Effective Match Cut

26 October 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Movie magic” is a perhaps over-used term bandied about for all types of filmmaking techniques, but there’s some genuinely special about a specific type of edit: the match cut. In the span of a split second, an editor can make a leap across space and time, and when done seamlessly, its effect is like few others in cinema. In a new video homage from Celia Gómez, she walks through a mix of some of the most memorable and perhaps lesser-known examples.

There’s, of course, the most iconic in films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Graduate, Psycho, and Un Chien Andalou. She also brings in a few examples from Park Chan-wook‘s Stoker, as well as three of Steven Spielberg‘s films, and more to show the wide-ranging uses (although we would have loved the inclusion of a few from Tarsem‘s The Fall).

The Lrm Interview: Vincent D’Onofrio on The Magnificent Seven and Daredevil

20 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Vincent D'Onofrio plays Jack Horne in the Sony/MGM Western, The Magnificent Seven

Actor Vincent D’Onofrio has earned a reputation for playing an eclectic mix of character roles and giving eccentric performances. That is certainly the case with Jack Horne, the character he plays in Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven, a mountain man who has been living on his own before being enlisted by Denzel Washington’s Chisolm to help save a small town being threatened by someone trying to steal their land.

Horne’s such a strange character, speaking in a heavy accent and carrying a ritual Native-American tomahawk that he’ll use to scalp anyone who crosses him, but it’s also a great role for D’Onofrio that proves he’s able to step outside himself to create a very different character than previous ones he’s played.

Exclusive: Vincent D'Onofrio Confirms That Kingpin Will Be Back... But He Can't Say When!

15 September 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

One of the most exciting things to happen in the world of comic books and superheroes in recent years has been Netflix teaming with Marvel Television to make great streaming shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

One of the standouts from the Daredevil show has been Vincent D'Onofrio's portrayal of Wilson Fisk Aka Kingpin, who has been a thorn in Daredevil's side on the show just as he has been in the comics.

While the Daredevil show has been put on hold as Marvel Television works on their other Marvel characters like Luke Cage (streaming next Friday, September 30!), Iron Fist and The Defenders, many have wondered if we might see the Kingpin in some of these other shows, particularly the latter, since he has been such a big presence in Daredevil's life.

D'Onofrio was in Toronto last week promoting director Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven (out Friday, »

7 Indie Filmmakers Making Must-See TV This Fall

9 September 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ava DuVernay, “Queen Sugar

The acclaimed “Selma” and “Middle of Nowhere” director is a storyteller first, and what better medium to delve deep into a story than television? In her first foray on the small screen, DuVernay allied herself with Oprah’s Own network for “Queen Sugar,” in which she examines the lives of the Bordelon siblings in Louisiana after the passing of their father who leaves them a sugarcane farm.

DuVernay has always been a champion of being the change she wants to see, and her work on “Queen Sugar” is no different. Beginning with adapting a novel from a woman of color, about black siblings, DuVernay also made a point to hire an all-female roster of directors for every episode. She even directed two herself, and the pilot shows that the same appreciation for a gorgeous, almost dreamy palette that “Selma” had, despite some rough subject matter. While »

Lee Pace on ‘Halt and Catch Fire’ season 3: ‘We’re in the big leagues now’

4 August 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Halt and Catch Fire, AMC’s smart, slick series about the fledgling computer industry of the 1980s, is California dreamin’.  Joe, Cameron, Gordon, and Donna have all left Texas’ Silicon Prairie for Silicon Valley. “It gets out of the garage very quickly and we’re in the big leagues now,” series star Lee Pace tells HitFix of Halt’s new season debuting later this month. Halt and Catch Fire (which takes its name from an early computer command) started off with salesman/visionary Joe MacMillan’s race to compete with Ibm’s personal computer. Season 2 shifted its focus to online gaming. Now Halt and Catch Fire is going into its third season, which is longer than either of Pace’s previous television shows lasted. His team-ups with Bryan Fuller, Pushing Daisies and Wonderfalls, were canceled before their time, in the former case cutting short Pace’s endearing, Emmy-nominated role as the pie-maker Ned. »

12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Freida Pinto to make her first appearance at Iifa

23 June 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Global star Freida Pinto is all set to have everyone’s tongues wagging this year and believed to be making her first ever appearance at an Indian awards show this year with Iifa in Madrid, Spain. Not only can we expect her to rule the red carpet but we are also told by insider sources that she will be presented with the award for “International Icon” as a celebration of how she’s shaped her career in the international arena.

Says an industry source, “Slumdog Millionaire was that massive breakthrough point for India in the international film market. While we did see Indian actors be a part of Hollywood films, Slumdog ensured that Indian talent was looked at far more seriously. Freida’s fame and her journey post Slumdog has been incredible – working with some of the most coveted names in the business like Christian Bale, Woody Allen, Tarsem Singh, »
