2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

24 August 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

Friend's 'Hitman,' Eisenberg-Stewart 'Ultra' Bomb: Weekend Box Office Estimates

22 August 2015 8:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Sinister 2' poster. 'American Ultra,' 'Hitman: Agent 47' and 'Sinister 2': Weekend box office bombs American Ultra, Hitman: Agent 47, and Sinister 2 are the new entries at the North American box office this weekend, Aug. 21-23, '15. All three of them are expected to underperform – with American Ultra having a particularly disastrous bow, especially for a movie starring Best Actor Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and former Twilight star Kristen Stewart. Whether you blame it on a glut of movies targeting the same audience, a lack of major box office draws, or poor reviews, only one of the debutantes is expected to score more than $10 million at U.S. and Canadian theaters by Sunday evening. 'Sinister 2' According to early estimates found at Deadline.com, Ciarán Foy's Sinister 2 will lead the pack of newcomers with »

Jason Bateman Says Horrible Bosses 2 Was "Garbage"

20 August 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Horrible Bosses 2 seemed like a good idea at the time. The first movie made a surprising $209.6 million after it was released in 2011, and naturally, Warner Bros. saw sequel potential. Jason Bateman, who starred in both films, saw it differently. "The second one was garbage as far as box office goes," he said of the film, released over Thanksgiving weekend in 2014. "Who knows whether it was on the merits or when they released it, but it did not do any money." The movie earned $106.6 million on a reported $42 million budget. In addition to Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Day, Jamie Foxx and Jason Sudeikis reprised their roles from the first film. Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz joined the »

Jason Bateman Admits Nobody Actually Wanted A Sequel To 'Horrible Bosses'

19 August 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood logic is pretty simple: if something is a success, find a way to keep printing money by making a sequel or spinoff. So, when "Horrible Bosses" earned over $205 million worldwide in 2011, Warner Bros. of course put the wheels in motion for a followup. "Horrible Bosses 2" arrived two years later and essentially did half the business of its predecessor, earning a collective shrug from audiences. Sometimes moviegoers are happy enough taking one trip down the block with a movie, no matter how successful, and Jason Bateman admits that was likely the case with "Horrible Bosses." “A lot of people saw the first one, but there are plenty of films that made a lot of money where no one is interested in seeing another one,” the actor said on Wtf With Marc Maron.  Read More: Review: 'Horrible Bosses 2' Starring Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jason Bateman, Chris Pine »

Sam Mendes Will Focus On Origins Of “How Bond Became Bond” With Spectre

17 August 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having stood the test of time for over 60 years, few characters in popular culture can hold a candle to James Bond. Ian Fleming’s indelible super-spy made his bow in the original Casino Royale back in ’53 and since then, his globe-trotting adventures have entertained readers and viewers for generations. Then again, with so many directors, novelists and actors adding their own idiosyncrasies to the 00 agent, his origin story has been left largely unexplored, and that’s precisely the area that Sam Mendes will explore in this year’s Spectre – albeit it with a twist.

Per Entertainment Weekly, the director touched upon his approach to Bond’s legacy, and how he believes Skyfall – the most recent in the longrunning series and the only one to grace $1 billion – left audiences at the beginning of the rebooted story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie. This is only the beginning »

Sam Mendes says “Bond has been rebooted” for Spectre

15 August 2015 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the latest featurette focussing on the women of Spectre [watch it here], Entertainment Weekly caught up with director Sam Mendes, who suggested that Bond “has been rebooted” with Skyfall, and the upcoming 24th adventure will explore 007’s origin story.

“Bond has been rebooted at the end of the movie,” states Mendes. “This is only the beginning of the story. The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You’re sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond.”

'Spectre' Will Show Origin Story of 'How Bond Became Bond'

14 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

James Bond is a man of action -- shake, don't stir! -- and he's usually too focused on moving forward to look back. But director Sam Mendes told Entertainment Weekly that "Spectre" is a culmination of the three previous Daniel Craig Bond movies while developing 007's mostly unexplored backstory. As Mendes put it:

The Bond creation myth never happened. I felt there was an opportunity there: What made him? And who were the people who affected him along the way? You're sort of telling the story backwards of how Bond became Bond."

Mendes told EW that Bond was "rebooted" at the end of "Skyfall" but that was just the beginning of the story, which is picked up by "Spectre."

Daniel Craig added to EW:

A lot of the film is a celebration of what it is to be Bond. But it's not retro. Hopefully it's not just classic Bond but a classic thriller. »

While moviegoers continue to deliberate on exactly who will be singing the film’s main theme song, MGM and Sony have peeled back the curtain on a new Spectre featurette, one which spotlights the film’s new female recruits.

Narrated by Monica Bellucci and the award-winning Léa Seydoux (Blue is the Warmest Color), here the newcomers offer up new information relating to their respective characters following their formal introduction some months ago. Up first is Bellucci’s Lucia Sciarra, who is on board to play “an Italian widow with secrets. Her mafioso husband is killed and she risks the same thing happening to her.” At 50 years of age, Bellucci is bringing a certain tenacity and maturity to her role in Spectre, with director Sam Mendes adding that the actress has that “certain amount of life experience and maturity, and she’s the whole package, really.”

Watch: ‘The Hateful Eight’ Trailer

12 August 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The long-anticipated trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s eighth film, “The Hateful Eight,” has finally arrived! And it’s full of everything we love about the prolific filmmaker, including his stalwart casting of familiars Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and others, including Demian Bichir and Jennifer Jason Leigh, as well as his pithy one-liners, and sprawling Western shots, this time captured on 70mm film. After a rocky start when the “Hateful” script was leaked back in 2014, the film about bounty hunters caught in a blizzard in post-Civil War America will officially be released later this year. Like the 2012 Oscar-winning “Django Unchained,” “The Hateful Eight” is set to drop Dec. 25. See the trailer below! Want more film experience under your belt? Check out our film audition listings! »
