Moving from Muppet hysteria to postmodernist hysteria, comedy actor Jason Segel is now signed on to play late visionary author David Foster Wallace (pictured above) for director James Ponsoldt (Smashed, The Spectacular Now). Ponsoldt’s newest film, entitled The End of the Tour, is a fact-based film surrounding Wallace’s road trip with Rolling Stone journalist David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) on the heels of his Infinite Jest book tour.
The End of the Tour is based on an article that Lipsky wrote about Wallace during their trip together. Although it was never published in Rolling Stone, Lipsky later compiled this material into a book, Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip With David Foster Wallace, which was published in 2010.
Many fans of the iconoclastic author may be put off by having Jason Segel portray Wallace, who committed suicide in 2008 at the age of 46. Although Segel is a hard actor to dislike, »

12 Years A Slave may have led the San Diego Film Critics’ nominations, but Steve McQueen’s film came away empty-handed. Alfonso Cuaron, Cate Blanchett and Jared Leto added more fuel to their stellar runs, but it was Spike Jonze’s Her that got another regional push, taking Best Film, Original Screenplay and Score.
Oscar Isaac batted aside tough competition to take Best Actor, and surprise nominee Shailene Woodley snatched Best Supporting Actress from frontrunner Lupita Nyong’o. Emmanuel Lubezki was once again rewarded, but not for the film you might think…

Have you all recovered from the SAG nominations? While there will be some more analysis regarding ensembles tomorrow, it’s time to turn our gaze on the Golden Globes, who are set to announce their nominees tomorrow morning. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is well-known for its boozy awards show, star loving nominations, and desire to predict the Oscars. This year’s race is no exception in any of those regards, but due to the campaigns of the studios, we could be in for one of the most anticipated Musical/Comedy races in some time.

Women lead movie website popularity chart, outranking top male actors as report highlights Hollywood's gender inequality
• News: Women successful yet sidelined in writing and directing
• Blog: Why are there so few female film-makers?
Jennifer Lawrence and Chloë Grace Moretz have been named by IMDb as the most popular actors in the world, a day after the New York Film Academy published new evidence of widening gender inequality in Hollywood.
Based on page views by the IMDb's 160 million users, Lawrence emerged as the most popular star, thanks largely to her best actress Oscar win in March for Silver Linings Playbook and her leading role in the dystopian blockbuster The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Sixteen-year-old Moretz has appeared in two big movies this year, the comic-book sequel Kick Ass 2 and the horror remake Carrie.

The Screen Actor’s Guild Awards announced this year’s nominees Wednesday, Dec. 11, with some upsets and surprises along the way. Oscar favorite 12 Years a Slave leads the pack with four nomination, including Ensemble Cast, followed by The Butler, Dallas Buyers Club and August: Osage County, which each got three nominations of their own. The SAG Awards have been considered a good barometer for the Oscars as actors make up the largest group of Oscar voters.

The Sundance Film Festival made their final feature film line-ups with the Premieres category announcements. Sixteen films with huge name talent, returnee filmmakers and plenty of buyer interest/and future all night wheeling, and dealing.
After breaking out in Park City with The Guard, John Michael McDonagh returns (alongside actor Brendan Gleeson) the much anticipated Calvary. Mike Cahill (alongside actress Brit Marling) returns with more sci-fi terrain with, I Origins. Jake Paltrow who managed to sink instead of swim with The Good Night, was again surfaces with Young Ones. And this was unexpected, but Jordan Vogt-Roberts makes it back to back years with Toy’s House (The Kings of Summer) re-teams with Nick Offerman for Nick Offerman: American Ham (which is more concert-comedy film than narrative feature).

An unusually strong international flavor pervades the Sundance Film Festival’s Premieres slate, with new pictures from British helmer Michael Winterbottom, Irish directors Lenny Abrahamson and John Michael McDonagh, Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn, Welsh-born action maven Gareth Evans and Iranian-born French auteur Marjane Satrapi figuring prominently among the 17 world-premiere titles unveiled today alongside the Documentary Premieres section.

For director of programming Trevor Groth, the flowering of international auteur talent in Premieres is the result of a considered effort that began shortly after he and fest director John Cooper launched their first edition in 2010. While their immediate focus was on beefing up the dramatic competition as a showcase for new filmmakers, broader international outreach across all sections of the festival became a similar priority.
“I think we’ve really built the dramatic competition up in a way that it’s firing at the level we always hoped it would, »

The Sundance Film Festival announced the titles selected to screen in its out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections. Last year, the movies that were launched in these categories — which typically highlight filmmakers who’ve appeared at Sundance before — included Before Midnight, Don Jon, and The Way Way Back; this year appears to be just as promising. In Lynn Shelton’s Laggies, a young woman stuck in arrested-development (Keira Knightley) has her life upended by an unexpected marriage proposal. In David Wain’s They Came Together — surely, a naughty pun, yes? — Wet Hot American Summer alums Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer has revealed a series of Easter eggs.
The film hints at a possible role for various villains in this or later films in the franchise.
One clip shows cases in which Doctor Octopus's tentacles and the Vulture's wings can be seen.
An OsCorp computer screen is also seen, which, when zoomed in, shows file entries for Venom, Dr Connors (the Lizard) and Dr Morbius.
The Rhino (Paul Giamatti), Electro (Jamie Foxx) and Norman and Harry Osborn (Chris Cooper and Dane DeHaan) - either of whom might take on the role of the Green Goblin - are confirmed to feature in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
The Lizard featured in Sony Pictures' first reboot film in 2012.
The third film - which will arrive in »
In order to make sure The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer had as little impact as possible, Variety dropped a huge news story yesterday that Fast & Furious star Gal Gadot will be playing Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman. How big of a role will she play? Will this lead to a solo movie? Will she be able to pull the character off? The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts...
Anthony Donovan Stokes: If they were going for the most unremarkable choice possible this was a major success.
Luke Owen: This is exactly what Anghus was writing about in his Amazing Spider-Man 2 article. It's simply fan service to compete with Avengers to add a non-developed Wonder Woman into a movie that already features Batman and Superman. »
Did Sony not learn anything from "Spider-Man 3"?That film caught a lot of flack for being overstuffed with bad guys -- and the first full trailer for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" looks like it may have the same problem.While the first film focused squarely on The Lizard, we get glimpses of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Rhino (Paul Giamatti) and a brand new Green Goblin (who we assume is Dane Dehaan, but it's not entirely clear) ... plus Easter egg shots of Doc Ock's tentacles and Vulture's wings. Could they already be teasing Part 3's villains in the first trailer? Possibly.The rest of the trailer features the standard shots of Spidey (Andrew Garfield) flying through the air, flirting with girlfriend Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and hints at new developments in Peter Parker's dad's mysterious backstory.We also see a plane crash and the total destruction of Times Square, so it should be an action-packed flick. »
