Tobey Maguire's Head is Exploding in 'Pawn Sacrifice' Poster

21 May 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I caught Pawn Sacrifice at last year's Toronto Film Festival and in my review I called it "a good movie, though nothing altogether ground-breaking or entirely revealing." Suffice to say, it's a'ight, which is why it wasn't snatched up by any of the major studios and will be hitting select theaters come Sept. 18 courtesy of Bleeker Street, who've just released the film's first poster. Set during the height of the Cold War, American chess prodigy Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire) finds himself caught between two superpowers when he challenges the Soviet Empire and it plays out pretty much like your standard sports story with a focus on the tortured soul at its core. Liev Schreiber, Sophie Nelisse, Peter Sarsgaard, Lily Rabe, Robin Weigert, Michael Stuhlbarg and Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick all co-star. Check out the poster below and you can read my full review right here. I expect we'll have a trailer later today or tomorrow. »

No one sees the world like ‘Steve Jobs’ in first trailer for Danny Boyle-directed biopic

17 May 2015 4:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Is it Oscar season yet?

The first trailer for Steve Jobs dropped on Sunday with Michael Fassbender taking the lead role as the famed CEO of Apple. The film, directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Aaron Sorkin, also stars Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterson, and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Originally intended to be directed by David Fincher, with Christian Bale starring as Jobs, the film is made up of three scenes — each covering a product that Jobs created.

The first trailer is short, but shows enough to say that Boyle isn’t looking to glorify the man and is actually looking to take a look into the mind of one of the most famed figures of our time, much like Sorkin did with The Social Network. Fassbender is arguably one of the best actors working today so while they didn’t get Bale, they still have one »

Steve Jobs Trailer Reveals Michael Fassbender as Apple Innovator

17 May 2015 3:32 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first Steve Jobs movie trailer trailer has landed online.  The film has only three scenes, each one the unveiling of a product Jobs created.  I really like this trailer because it walks the line between acknowledging that Steve Jobs accomplished incredible things but it doesn't look like director Danny Boyle is going into hero worship. I don’t know what this film will add to what we know about Jobs as an individual, but the way Boyle is presenting Jobs' legacy could be very exciting. I particularly love the close of this trailer where the applause Jobs receives is somewhat unnerving. I can’t wait to see more. Check out the Steve Jobs movie trailer below. The film opens October 9th and stars Michael Fassbender, Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterston, and Michael Stuhlbarg.  For all of our Steve Jobs coverage, click here.   Here's the official logline »

Time Machine: Sensational Scarlett J. in Purple

Scarlett Johansson Oscar dress Scarlett Johansson at the Oscars Looking great in a long purple dress, Scarlett Johansson displays her tight-fitting costume and bare back at the 83rd Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Oscar 2011 co-host and Best Actor nominee James Franco (for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours) thus introduced Johansson and fellow Oscar presenter Matthew McConaughey: "I am six degrees of Kevin Bacon away from our next two presenters. Figure it out on the Internet." Well, if you're lucky. Some have remarked that Franco was a more effective Oscar host online, where he tweeted some of the evening's to-dos, than on the stage of the Kodak Theatre. His fellow equally panned Oscarcast host was actress Anne Hathaway. Scarlett Johansson movies Scarlett Johansson has been featured in more than 40 films since her debut at age 10 in Rob Reiner's North, back in 1994. Johansson, in fact, »

Cut Bank | Review

3 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Postman Always Dies Twice: Shakman’s Noir Infused Debut Underwhelms

Seasoned television director Matt Shakman (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”) makes his narrative feature debut with Cut Bank, a rural neo-noir written by fellow television writer Robert Patino (“Sons of Anarchy”) that draws comparisons to the work of the Coen Bros. but pales considerably beyond its devious narrative. Sometimes as darkly comedic as its origins would portend, the film hits too many false notes as it chugs through several twists that don’t seem all that surprising. Set within the small town façade we’ve seen countless times before, where greed and general malcontent are barely contained beneath the superficial veneer of lip-serviced hospitality, Shakman and Patino gather the usual suspects and toss them about in the kind of impossible scam that suggests these players have never bothered to watch classic film noir.

The Way Liam Hemsworth Handles a Gun Will Make You Feel Things

31 March 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

You’re about see Liam Hemsworth like never before. In the upcoming film Cut Bank, the actor stars as Dwayne McLaren, a former high school football star whose life changes forever when he happens to catch a murder on video tape in Cut Bank, Montana. In perhaps his darkest, most suspenseful film yet, it’s the thrill of watching him take charge that will make you fall in love. Again and again.

Rounding out the cast are Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire), John Malkovich, Billy Bob Thornton, Bruce Dern, and Oliver Platt. With a roster like this, the performances will likely more than deliver. Until we’re able to see the film, let’s just stare at our favorite Aussie some more.

Bye-bye, Gale Hawthorne. Hemsworth has grown his facial hair and has a smoldering stare like Boom.

Bam.

First Look at Michael Fassbender as NeXT-era 'Steve Jobs'

17 March 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production started back in January on Universal Pictures' Steve Jobs biopic, but we have yet to see an official image of Michael Fassbender as the Apple co-founder. Today, Instagram user Sean Nung posted a photo depicting a set poster with Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs, promoting his NeXT computer system. The poster uses the actual tagline used in 1988, "Computing advances to the NeXT level," although the real-life poster did not feature Steve Jobs himself.

Cult of Mac reveals that this poster was on display at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco, where the production is shooting a "major scene" involving Michael Fassbender's Steve Jobs unveiling the NeXT system in October 1988. The actual event took place at San Francisco's Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall, directly across the street from the War Memorial Opera House, which was considered "a huge coming out event" for Steve Jobs, since this »

Bryan Cranston’s ‘Trumbo’ Set for Nov. 6 Release

17 March 2015 12:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Recently launched distributor Bleecker Street has set Bryan Cranston’s “Trumbo” for an awards-season release on Nov. 6 in the U.S.

The film is based on the true story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Cranston), who had been one of Hollywood’s top screenwriters before he was forced to testify in front of the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1947. When he refused to cooperate, he was sent to prison for 11 months.

Helen Mirren co-stars as Trumbo’s nemesis, columnist Hedda Hopper. Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, John Goodman, Michael Stuhlbarg and Louis C.K. co-star in the pic, directed by Jay Roach.

See Michael Fassbender As Steve Jobs In New Promo Poster

17 March 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After Christian Bale exited Danny Boyle’s upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, many believed the project to have lost its driving element. Bale’s resemblance to the Apple founder is perhaps greater than the man who would actually go on to play him; Michael Fassbender. Regardless, in this first leaked poster it appears as if Fassbender is right at home in the shoes of the technological pioneer.

The poster is a replica of the original promotional ad for Jobs’ NeXT computer. In the snap, Fassbender occupies the same space that Jobs did during that round of marketing and while he doesn’t look remotely like the man, this is a movie. Disbelief has to be suspended just a little.

For those of you who may need a refresher, the movie is scripted by Aaron Sorkin who has repeatedly affirmed that the finished feature won’t resemble a traditional biopic. Instead it »

Adding Possible 2016 Oscar Contenders in 'Trumbo', 'Splash', 'Grind' and 'Face'

27 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I know, I know... it's early in the year and the Oscars just ended and Oh my God what are you doingc Yet, the wheels keep turning and I like to be ahead of the game rather than playing catch up at the end of the year so I'm trying to make sure the database is locked and loaded for Oscar 2016 and I just got done adding a few contenders, contenders such as... Luca Guadagnino's A Bigger Splash, which Fox Searchlight just acquired for distribution starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson and Aurore Clement. The pic centers on a high profile couple, a famous rock star and a filmmaker (Schoenaerts and Swinton), vacationing and recovering on the idyllic sun-drenched and remote Italian island of Pantelleria are disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter (Fiennes and Johnson) - creating a whirlwind of jealousy, »
