Scott Eastwood & Britt Robertson in First 'The Longest Ride' Trailer

3 minutes ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another year, another Nicholas Sparks movie is coming to theaters for people who just can't get enough of cheesy melodrama and romance. Given the flare of recording artist Hozier and a bit more sexiness along with the struggles of love, The Longest Ride at least slightly different from the fare we've come to expect from the author of The Notebook, Dear John and Safe Haven. There's a split love story here just like The Notebook, but with two different couples, one from today (Scott Eastwood & Britt Roberteson) and one from the past (Jack Huston & Oona Chaplin). It's about what you would expect from a movie like this, but it seems like Sparks is drawing characters from a hat. Here's a bull rider and an art student! Watch? Here's the first trailer for George Tillman Jr.'s The Longest Ride from 20th Century Fox: The Longest Ride is directed by George Tillman Jr. (Men of Honor, »

Guys, we need to talk about Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Minnie Driver in 'Beyond the Lights'

10 December 2014 5:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This morning's Screen Actors Guild nominations made one thing abundantly clear that has been pretty much at the forefront of much of the awards discussion this season: there is room to maneuver in the lead and supporting actress categories. Jennifer Aniston ("Cake") and Naomi Watts ("St. Vincent") each found an angle and made their way in. But there are two performances in one film that frankly deserve to be in the conversation to win each of those categories, yet neither is getting any traction. It's time we talked about Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Minnie Driver in Gina Prince-Bythewood's "Beyond the Lights." First and foremost, HitFix readers aren't new to the banging of this drum as for the longest time, our own Greg Ellwood has been out in front on this title, championing it all the way back at the Toronto Film Festival. For my part, I didn't get around to seeing it until very recently, »

Can Anna Kendrick Single-Handedly Save the Movie Musical?

9 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Anna Kendrick started early. The actress of both stage and screen earned her first Tony nomination at the tender age of 12 (for her turn in High Society), which she followed up five years later with an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her very first feature film role, in the big screen Camp. Kendrick has continued to pursue her movie career in the subsequent years, throwing most of her attention at various and varied cinematic endeavors, with significantly less attention paid to her stage work in the interim (Kendrick hasn’t starred in a stage outing since 2003). Yet Kendrick has never balked at her theatrical background, and she’s begun more effectively blending her various skills — namely, acting and singing — into her own unique career, becoming bankable and dependable in a way that her other peers have not. And she might be able to save the modern musical. Earlier this year, I »

The 50 Definitive Relationship Dramas: 20-11

1 December 2014 5:16 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

20. Love/Chloe in the Afternoon (1972)

Directed by: Éric Rohmer

Originally titled “Love in the Afternoon,” but released in North America as “Chloe in the Afternoon,” this Rohmer film is a tale of possible infidelity, seen through the eyes of a conflicted man. Frédéric (Bernard Verley) is a successful young lawyer who is happily married to a teacher named Hélène (Françoise Verley), who is pregnant with their second child. While Frédéric is in a considerably good place in his life, he still struggles with the loss of excitement he had before he married, when he could sleep with whomever he chose. It wasn’t so much the sex that thrilled him, but the chase itself. Still, he feels that these thoughts and fantasies, paired with his refusal to act upon them, only proves that he is completely dedicated and in love with his own wife. That is, until he meets Chloé »

'Sleepy Hollow' extra Bearded Man Walking Away From Bar tells all

17 November 2014 2:45 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The episode description for Monday (November 17) night's "Sleepy Hollow" episode, titled "Mama," teases that Jenny and Abbie will "come face-to-face with their past" and mentions a series of mysterious deaths and "an especially surprising spirit." No mention is made of resolution to last week's cliffhanger involving Bearded Man Walking Away From Bar. That, unfortunately, is the life of an extra. You dedicate minutes -- whole minutes! -- to crafting an interior life for a character who may not even have a name in the official record, you work to hone that personal narrative so that it has a beginning, a middle and an end, you improvise and refine your performance, but then you watch the finished product and your entire arc has been reduced to nearly nothing, the faintest whisper of a story. In fact, if you end up being able to spot the back of your head, the outer »

Tomorrowland’s Britt Robertson Joins Eddie Murphy For Cook

12 November 2014 8:59 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Britt Robertson’s slate for 2015 is filling up thick and fast. The 24-year old actress has already signed on for Nicholas Sparks drama The Longest Ride, while also making time for the lead role in Brad Bird’s ambitious sci-fi film, Tomorrowland. Today, though, Deadline has learned that Robertson has added another project to the list: a leading role in Bruce Beresford’s drama Cook alongside Eddie Murphy.

In essence, the plot for Beresford’s film centers around Murphy’s titular Henry Church, an everyday yet artistic chief who agrees to provide meals to the family of a dying father. Over the course of fifteen years, Murphy’s character becomes an integral part in the lives of Marie and Charlotte Brody (Beresford), and, judging by the description, becomes a surrogate father of sorts to the Brodys.

As we alluded to earlier, Cook will be directed by Driving Miss Daisy helmer »

Glenn Beck Calls His Penis a 'Winkie'

7 November 2014 4:24 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Here's wonderful footage of Glenn Beck and a couple of cards discussing how un-manly it is to know about Nicholas Sparks movies. They have important arguments like, "You're questioning your gender if you've seen at least three of them!" Love some gay/gender/trans/intelligence phobia to kick off my weekend! Oh, Glenn! Worst of all, the word "winkie" is used in place of "penis." Glenn says it himself. Now your day is definitely ruined. (via Jezebel) »

Gay Pride takes a fall

2 November 2014 6:02 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

British critics adored Pride, the comedy-drama based on the true story of the gay Londoners who rallied to support Welsh miners in their confrontation with Margaret Thatcher in 1984, and some were moved to tears.

Audiences in the UK were rather less enthused as the film starring Bill Nighy, Paddy Considine, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton has pocketed a modest $US6.2 million in seven weeks, tracking more like a Made in Dagenham than a Calendar Girls or Billy Elliot.

The reaction seems similar here judging by the Matthew Warchus-directed film.s $522,000 debut on 130 screens, and $595,00 with festival screenings and previews.

Distributor eOne emailed exhibitors this morning asking them to maintain screens in hopes that word-of-mouth will kick in this weekend, particularly among the target audience of mature females.

It was another soft weekend as takings dropped by 9% to $9 million according to Rentrak.s estimates. Year-to-date ticket sales have generated $896 million, »

58th BFI London Film Festival Review – The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014)

28 October 2014 1:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, 2014.

Written and Directed by Ned Benson.

Starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Nina Arianda, Bill Hader, Ciarán Hinds, William Hurt, Isabelle Huppert and Jess Weixler.

Synopsis:

One couple’s story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone.

For those who prefer their romantic films to be sappy, cheesy, mushy, schmaltzy, written by Nicholas Sparks or Stephanie Meyer be warned: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them may not tickle your taste buds. Not because it’s a bad film by any means, far from it, but because Ned Benson’s tale of love and loss in New York may well put you off rom-coms for good, and make you reassess everything you know and love about the genre.

Somewhat strangely, Eleanor Rigby is a film »

‘Ouija’ Says Yes To $19.8M, ‘John Wick’ Chases In $14.4M, ‘St. Vincent,’ $7.7M Blessing – Final B.O. Weekend

27 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Final Update, Monday, 2:25 Pm: The finally tallies are in with Universal’s horror film Ouija and the Keanu Reeves’ actioner John Wick winning the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, respectively. St. Vincent, which went wide, did okay for The Weinstein Co. With terrific exit polling, it should get some more play. In their second weekends, Sony/Qed’s Fury held well (-44%) as did Fox’s animated The Book of Life (-41%). Relativity’s The Best of Me wasn’t as lucky (-54%). Noteworthy: We’ve included the grosses for the Bollywood heist film Happy New Yea from our own sources as Rentrak did not report for it. There are still no official numbers for the the film which we know tallied biggest opening weekend in Indian Cinema history (per its producer). Strange as to why they are not touting the numbers and reporting them as soon as possible, but »

Box Office Weekend: No One Predicted Oujia Win

27 October 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Critics did not like it. Audiences did not like it. And yet, thanks most likely to its status as one of the few spooky flicks to enjoy during the Halloween season, Ouija took the box office crown with an estimated $20 million. It was still not good news for an overall dipping box office trend, as second place went to the new (and much better received) John Wick. Keanu Reeves made good with an estimated $14.2 million start and good word of mouth, but along with Ouija had no reported budget numbers, so whether Reeves finally has a winner on his hands is undetermined.

Fury (estimated $13 million), Gone Girl (estimated $11.1 million), and The Book of Life (estimated $9.8 million) all stayed in roughly the same positions, if only pushed down by new releases, but only Gone Girl is a winner and the highest earner in the current top ten. Fury and The Book of Life »

Nicholas Sparks On 'Best Of Me,' Working With James Marsden [Exclusive]

21 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Nicholas Sparks, who has penned a number of best-selling novels that have been adapted for the big screen, has most recently been promoting the adaptation of The Best of Me, starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan.

Nicholas Sparks On 'The Best of Me'

In The Best of Me, Dawson (Marsden) and Amanda (Monaghan) are high school sweethearts, now in the their forties, who find themselves falling back into each others arms. Part of Sparks’ inspiration to tell this particular love story was the uniqueness of being a person in his or her 40s, a decade that exists in an inbetween of sorts.

“I just think the 40’s are a very interesting decade,” Sparks told uInterview exclusively “The 40s is like this period where you’re shifting from one to the other. At the same time, I think that brings with it all sorts of great questions. The ‘what if’ questions of life, »
