Audiences hungry for more Games

14 hours ago | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

The latest edition of The Hunger Games franchise predictably dominated ticket sales at Australian cinemas last weekend although the opening was fractionally below the previous edition.

Still, let.s not quibble as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 racked up nearly $11.9 million, just 5.6% below Catching Fire.s $12.5 million debut a year ago.

The action thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth accounted for a whopping 68% of the entire national B.O. of $17.4 million which, by sheer co-incidence, was up 68% on the previous weekend, according to Rentrak.

Christopher Nolan.s Interstellar plunged by 42% to $2.18 million in its third orbit, collecting $13 million so far, but looks unlikely to reach $20 million.

Mature folks who were not interested in either blockbuster turned up to see Maggie Smith and Kevin Kline bicker and banter in My Old Lady, which fetched $380,000 in its second weekend on 94 screens, dropping by 22%, bringing its tally to $1.12 million. »

18 November 2014 2:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Torn from his quiet life as a farmhand, the unlikely young hero embarks on a daring adventure with his battle-hardened mentor to vanquish a dark queen (Julianne Moore) and the army of supernatural assassins she has dispatched against their kingdom. »

International Trailer Lands For Jeff Bridges Fantasy Seventh Son

17 November 2014 1:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Like a phoenix rising very slowly and wearily from the ashes, fantasy adventure Seventh Son will soon land in theatres. After a very lengthy stint on the shelf following the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures divorce, its new owners, Universal, have cobbled together an international trailer. The question is, though, will it outshine the somewhat hit and miss efforts of the last preview?

Early talk surrounding the epic, which is directed by Sergei Bodrov, has revolved around its addiction to genre conventions. Warriors, CGI monsters, dodgy accents, and dingy clothing are a few of the typical fantasy tropes that the pic is harnessing to ensnare audiences. If we’re to throw this international trailer into that mix, it seems Universal are attempting to capitalise on the success of Game Of Thrones. But without the cunning, genius or creativity.

To be honest, it’s a damn shame these teasers don’t seem »

Summoning her followers of every incarnation, Mother Malkin is preparing to unleash her terrible wrath on an unsuspecting world. Only one thing stands in her way: Master Gregory.

In a deadly reunion, Gregory comes face to face with the evil he always feared would someday return. »

They're making a "gadget," one that they hope will save the world ... but fear will actually destroy it someday. In Manhattan, Wgn's new World War II drama about scientists racing to develop an atomic bomb while grappling with the threat of espionage and the equally undermining power of egos, has just finished its first season, and the network is re-running all 13 episodes this Sunday, Oct. 26, in one marathon showing starting at 11 a.m. Et (8 a.m. Pt.)

'Manhattan' finale: Deconstructing the atomic bomb drama with creator Sam Shaw

19 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Implosion. Pre-detonation. Radioactivity. Meltdowns. The terms that define Wgn’s atomic bomb drama Manhattan also apply to its characters, a mix of men and women trying to stop a world war by creating a weapon that could destroy the planet completely. There isn't a simple equation among them. Throughout season one, which came to an end Sunday night with its thirteenth episode (“Perestroika”), the show mastered the art of contradiction, presenting heroes you root for even as they betray their own better natures. In the finale, the scientists of Los Alamos are still far from the breakthroughs they will need »

Manhattan: Season Two Renewal for Wgn America Series

14 October 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though its viewership has been quite small, Manahattan has been renewed for a second season on Wgn America. The period TV show's first season finale airs this Sunday night.

Set in 1943, Manhattan follows the residents of a secret town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. Hidden away by the federal government, scientists live there with their families while they work to build the world's first atomic bomb. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Alexia Fast, Ashley Zukerman, Rachel Brosnahan, Daniel Stern, Katja Herbers, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus, Eddie Shin, Daniel London, and Mark Moses.

The 11 episodes that have aired so far have averaged a 0.08 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 420,000 viewers. The cable channel is still very new to producing their own scripted series so likely has low expectations at this point.

Not a bomb: Wgn's 'Manhattan' renewed for season 2

14 October 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A new TV show's opening credits sequence is often one of the last things completed, and therefore something critics don't always get to see before a show debuts. I don't know that the title sequence for "Manhattan" — which Wgn America just renewed for a second season — would have significantly upgraded my initial review of the show, but it does a nice job of suggesting the level of ambition and execution the show would be able to achieve over the course of its first season, which concludes Sunday night at 9. That title sequence (you can watch it here) presents an overhead view of a series of sketches and diagrams, as the military base that housed the Manhattan Project is rapidly constructed in the Los Alamos desert. We start with some solitary workmen, then blueprints of houses, then the houses themselves, with plans being mixed with physics equations and desert recipes and propaganda fliers, »

David Cronenberg: 'All my films are comedies'

8 October 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

David Cronenberg has claimed that all his films are comedies.

He admitted that they may not follow the "traditional definition of a comedy" but he considers there to be a "humorous aspect" to every project.

"At Cannes, someone said, 'Have you ever considered making a comedy?'" the veteran filmmaker told Vulture.

"And I said, 'I've done nothing but'. Not maybe the traditional definition of a comedy, where it ends with a feel-good kind of thing, but for me, there is an observed and humorous aspect to the human condition and, of course, exploring the human condition is really what art is about.

"And I can't imagine not having humour be part of it. I just can't imagine it."

The director is best known for Scanners, Videodrome and more recent films including Cosmopolis and A Dangerous Method.

Second Opinion – Maps to the Stars (2014)

4 October 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Maps to the Stars, 2014.

Directed by David Cronenberg.

Starring Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon and Evan Bird.

Synopsis:

A twisted tale about the inner workings of a Hollywood family and the tragic past that they can’t escape.

For the first time in his career David Cronenberg has made a movie in America and what a film it is. Maps to the Stars is a deliciously satirical take on Hollywood which examines the twisted culture that so many love.

We’re firstly introduced to the burnt and scarred Agatha (superbly played by go-to Indie girl Mia Wasikowska) as she arrives in the brilliant sunshine of La. Through a series of meetings and a cameo from Carrie Fisher, she starts work as a personal assistant to washed up actress Havana Segrand (Moore). Havana is one of those characters that you love to hate. She’s selfish, »

Movie Review – Maps to the Stars (2014)

29 September 2014 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Maps to the Stars, 2014.

Directed by David Cronenberg.

Starring Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon and Evan Bird.

Synopsis:

A tour into the heart of a Hollywood family chasing celebrity, one another and the relentless ghosts of their pasts.

Some plot details lie below…

Watching Maps To The Stars is like watching a waking nightmare, one you cannot wake up from and one you feel intimately part of – whether you like it or not. It is also a new kind of horror from film maker David Cronenberg, a film maker who made his name with superior bodyshock horror pictures, and may be the director at his most cynical since Videodrome over thirty years ago. All of this makes for a film experience which is as disturbing as it is humorous, yet never anything less than brilliant.

Maps To The Stars is like Robert Altman »

Maps To The Stars review: Cronenberg tackles celebrity culture

25 September 2014 6:29 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: David Cronenberg; Screenwriter: Bruce Wagner; Starring: Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Evan Bird, Robert Pattinson, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Carrie Fisher; Running time: 111 mins; Certificate: 18

David Cronenberg movies rarely fail to provoke strong and conflicting feelings from the viewer, whether it be the compelling alienation of Cosmopolis or the involving revulsion of Eastern Promises. His latest offering Maps To The Stars is no exception, offering a scintillating study of the repercussions of suppressing traumatic episodes and boasting engrossing portrayals from Julianne Moore and Mia Wasikowska.

Famed for his venereal 'body horror' movies, Cronenberg positions Hollywood as a diseased, festering and parasitic entity. Alongside the celebrity culture it promotes, it bears a sickly yet addictive quality to the fascinating array of characters we encounter, especially those seemingly inspired by real-life famous figures.

There's hysterical Lohan-esque actress Havana (Moore), desperate to portray her famous deceased mother in a movie, and Benjie (Evan Bird »

Manhattan: Season One Ratings

23 September 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Wgn America is still very new to producing their original scripted series so it's hard to know what they consider a ratings success. Salem was renewed for a second season. Will the new Manhattan series be renewed as well or will it be cancelled? We'll have to wait and see.

Set in 1943, Manhattan follows the residents of a secret town of Los Alamos, New Mexico. Hidden away by the federal government, scientists live there with their families while they work to build the world's first atomic bomb. The cast includes John Benjamin Hickey, Olivia Williams, Alexia Fast, Ashley Zukerman, Rachel Brosnahan, Daniel Stern, Katja Herbers, Christopher Denham, Harry Lloyd, Michael Chernus, Eddie Shin, Daniel London, and Mark Moses.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. »

Is Julianne Moore channeling Lindsay Lohan in Nsfw 'Maps to the Stars' clips?

23 September 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In his Cannes Film Festival review of "Maps to the Stars," our own Drew McWeeny praised actress Julianne Moore for being "the one person in the film that truly gets the tone right." David Cronenberg's Hollywood satire isn't earning much love on the critical front for its lucid attack on the movie business, but it sounds like Moore, as a neurotic actress chasing a theoretically life-changing role, cuts through it with her usual contemplative bravado. As Drew puts it, she plays it "like a person walking a tightrope over a yawning pit of psychosis, her every emotion bubbling up and threatening to knock her off." Onlookers can get a taste for exactly what that means with three new clips from "Maps to the Stars," highlighting Moore's unhinged performance. In the first, Moore's Havana Segrand interrogates Agatha, played by Mia Wasikowska, with spine-tingling valleyspeak. In the second, Havana lets her »

Three’s Company For Julianne Moore In Very Nsfw Clip From Maps To The Stars

22 September 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While David Cronenberg’s Maps To The Stars polarized critics during its festival run, the performance of its leading lady cannot be denied. As a washed-up actress desperate to regain the fame she once had, Julianne Moore went above and beyond. In a role that other actresses might have deemed alienating, or just too provocative, she shone – like a star (ahem) – in one of her finest performances in recent years. She even snagged the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Maps To The Stars picks up the story of Moore’s older thespian in the process of signing on to star in a remake of a film made famous by her mother. Inevitably, that’s cause for concern – what if she flails in the role her mother excelled in? To assuage her fears, she enlists a personal assistant (Mia Wasikowska) and then… well, everything goes nuts.

Bruce Wagner Tells the Dark Story of Writing Cronenberg's 'Maps to the Stars'

22 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

But together, Cronenberg and Wagner, along with Cannes Best Actress winner Julianne Moore and her excellently creepy costars Mia Wasikowska, John Cusack, Olivia Williams and Robert Pattinson make this black void somehow feel sinister and real. In a recent Guardian op-ed, Wagner opened up about the famed script's thwarted journey, how Oliver Stone inadvertently pushed him into writing it, why this isn't "a satire" and why "Maps to the Stars" is a dead serious ghost story. "The thought of an industry satire makes me want to vomit." Wagner grew up on the fringes of Hollywood, working at bookstores, as a limo driver for celebrities including Orson Welles ("the prospect of sitting next to him for hours was suddenly and inexplicably stressful"), an ambulance driver, a would-be actor and a pencil-pusher at Paramount, where "Maps" got its start. -"In my early 30s, Oliver Stone introduced me to Billy Wilder. I’ll never forget my frisson. »
