25 September 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Lara Bingle is pregnant! Us Weekly reported the news on Thursday, saying Lara and actor Sam Worthington are expecting their first child together, just a year after they started dating. Rumors have been swirling about the model's suspected pregnancy, with plenty of evidence to confirm and telling shots on her Instagram account, which she has since taken down. The last time we saw the two together was at the Sabotage premiere in March, so it's been quite a while since their last public appearance. Congratulations to the soon-to-be parents! »

Anthony Hopkins Boards Pacific Northwest Thriller ‘Go With Me’

19 September 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins is re-teaming with his Kidnapping Freddy Heineken helmer Daniel Alfredson (The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest) on Go With Me, a joint production between Enderby Entertainment and The Gotham Group.

DVD Review – Sabotage (2014)

16 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sabotage, 2014.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Harold Perrineau and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s post political return to film has been a bit of a mixed bag thus far. Aside from a couple of token appearances in the first two Expendables films, his films have all tanked (including his token appearance in The Expendables 3). That’s not to say his output hasn’t been without merits. Arnold’s first proper re-introduction came in the simple, yet highly enjoyable The Last Stand, a film which grows on me every time I see it, and deserved to be watched by more than the half dozen people who actually bothered to see it in cinemas. »

James Cameron May Shoot 'Avatar' Sequels at 120 Fps

15 September 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Peter Jackson helped push the envelope of frame rate technology by presenting The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in the high frame rate (Hfr) of 48 frames per second, double the industry standard of 24 Fps. Now it seems filmmaker James Cameron may go even further with his upcoming Avatar sequels, Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 by filming at 120 frames per second.

Douglas Trumbull, who developed a 4K 3D system that is shot at 120 Fps dubbed Magi, revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he has spoken with James Cameron's producing partner Jon Landau about using this technology on the Avatar follow-ups. Here's what Douglas Trumbull had to say about setting up a screening of his short film Utofog, which showcases the Magi technology.

"I know that Cameron admired Showscan [Trumbull's earlier invention of a large-format high-frame rate projection system] and that he is a huge advocate of high frame »

Blu-ray Review – Sabotage (2014)

15 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sabotage, 2014.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Harold Perrineau and Mireille Enos.

Synopsis:

Members of an elite DEA task force find themselves being taken down one by one after they rob a drug cartel safe house.

Skip Woods is the luckiest man in Hollywood right now, if not the world. Since 2001 he has been paid to write scripts for a living yet has never once showed he has the talent to warrant any future employment. If I were as bad at my day job as he is at his, I would have been fired a long, long time ago. I can only assume he has photos of important Hollywood players doing things they wish no one knew about.

This is the man who, let us never forget, defecated on the Die Hard series before audiences’ very eyes »

Will Avatar sequels use new high frame rate 4K 3D system?

15 September 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Cameron's Avatar sequels could use Douglas Trumbull's new system for 4K 3D at 120 frames per second.

The filmmaker and inventor has discussed the new system with Avatar series producer Jon Landau, he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Landau has requested a screening of short film Ufotog, which is being used as a showcase for the Magi process.

"I know that Cameron admired Showscan [Trumbull's earlier invention of a large-format high-frame rate projection system] and that he is a huge advocate of high frame rates [HFRs]," said Trumbull.

"The use of HFRs for Avatar would be very appropriate and very successful.

"I don't know if Cameron is interested [in using Magi for the Avatar sequels]. He's in seclusion writing the screenplay for Avatar. I am talking to Jon Landau, and we plan to have a screening [of Ufotog] soon."

Trumbull has said that he is in talks with other directors about Magi.

"It delivers extreme fluidity of motion and amazing clarity with no strobing, no double flickering and a viewing »

‘Sabotage’ Blu-ray Review

14 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Arnold SchwarzeneggerSam Worthington, Joe Maganiello, Terrence HowardOlivia WilliamsHarold Perrineau | Written by David Ayer, Skip Woods | Directed by David Ayer

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s journey back to the big screen has been fraught with financial peril. While the Expendables films have done decent enough business, his other ventures since his return from government have proven to be fairly rocky. The Last Stand only scrapped past making back its production budget worldwide, and although his Stallone co-starrer Escape Plan managed to make over $100 million, his latest solo starring vehicle Sabotage has made less than $20 million across the globe which used to turn out in their droves, once for a film when the Austrian Oak got pregnant. Oh how times change…

In all honesty though, its easy to see why Sabotage would not bring in wide audiences. David Ayer, who has made his name on manly men being men films »

Tiff: Trailer And 2 Clips For Feel Good Family Film 'Paper Planes' Starring Sam Worthington

12 September 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He might not have made major headlines, but Sam Worthington has been in a handful of movies playing the Toronto International Film Festival this year. He antagonized Brit Marling in "The Keeping Room" (review here), comforted Jennifer Aniston in "Cake" (review here) and now helps a kid fly (metaphorically) in the family film "Paper Planes." Directed by Robert Connolly ("Underground: The Julian Assange Story"), the film tells the sweet story of an eleven year-old kid who works to get into the National Paper Plane Championships. All the familiar family movie markers are here, from the chubby sidekick to the shitty mean kid, and this is clearly made for a specific demographic and will probably do the job its supposed to (no surprise, this is screening in the Tiff Kids section of the program). No U.S. distro for this one yet, but the film has its final public screening at »

The Keeping Room Review | Tiff 2014

11 September 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Daniel Barber’s The Keeping Room begins with a quote from Union General William Tecumseh Sherman: “War is cruelty, there is no use trying to reform it; the crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.”  The Keeping Room takes place during war, but it is not about war, at least not in the traditional sense of soldiers on a battlefield.  It is more about cruelty; specifically, the cruelty visited upon women.  The threat of rape pervades the entire story, and Barber maintains the tension without ever feeling exploitative.  Although the dialogue can be a little too on the nose, the weight of the narrative and Brit Marling’s powerful performance make the dread palatable throughout this painfully relevant tale. Set in the American South in 1865, Augusta (Marling), Louise (Hailee Steinfeld), and their former slave Mad (Muna Otaru) scrape by on their small homestead.  Augusta and Louise’s brother »

Cake Capsule Review [Tiff 2014]

10 September 2014 4:54 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Editor’S Note: This is a capsule review. The full review will be released once the film hits theatres.

With its bitter-comic approach to heavy themes of suicide, addiction, and grief, and featuring the kind of protagonist that wins Sandra Bullocks Oscars, Cake makes itself available for holding at arm’s length. Its symbolism is heavy-handed from title card onward, plotting is incidental yet often contrived, and it’s hard to shake the feeling that the film is more about career therapy for a few of its stars than about seeking emotional truths.

It’d be more galling if that last part weren’t Cake‘s main feature instead of a bug. Jennifer Aniston stars as Claire Simmons, a scarred trauma survivor living with chronic pain. It’s a thoroughly abrasive role, one you could cynically call out as awards-bait if Aniston weren’t such a believable, attractive centre holding Cake together. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Keeping Room’

10 September 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A potentially gripping story of empowerment through armed resistance is almost totally undermined by studied, self-conscious storytelling in “The Keeping Room,” Working from Julia Hart’s 2012 Black List screenplay about three Southern women — two sisters and their loyal but not entirely subservient slave — who must defend themselves against two brutish Union Army scouts during the waning days of the Civil War, director Daniel Barber (“Harry Brown”) devotes entirely too much time to a languidly paced buildup that is heavy on portentous atmospherics, mumbled dialogue and aggressively striking visuals. The violent payoff arrives much too late to provide satisfying catharsis, or to enhance the film’s commercial appeal.

Barber employed a similarly elliptical approach to narrative in “The Tonto Woman,” his 2008 Oscar-nominated short — based on an Elmore Leonard short story — about a Mexican horse thief drawn to a white woman who, after being freed from captivity by Indians, has been ostracized from polite society. »

Jennifer Aniston Sparks Awards Buzz in Toronto for Unflattering Role in Cake

9 September 2014 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

She's been called America's sweetheart, but Jennifer Aniston swept into the Toronto International Film Festival with a warts-and-all star turn that got her a standing ovation - and immediate awards buzz. In Cake, Aniston, 45, plays a woman suffering from addiction, rage issues and suicidal depression after a tragic accident leaves her scarred inside and out. It's hardly the romantic comedy she's known for. With greasy hair, no makeup and a fire she's never before displayed on screen, Aniston's riveting performance brought a Canadian audience to its feet at its Toronto premiere Monday. "It's awesome and liberating to let that all go, »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Cake’

9 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A strong if self-consciously deglammed performance from Jennifer Aniston deserves more honest story treatment than it gets in “Cake,” . Approaching such heavy issues as suicide, grief, separation and pill addiction with a disarming sense of humor, director Daniel Barnz and screenwriter Patrick Tobin attempt to pull off an emotional bait-and-switch by suddenly revealing a more sympathetic side to their anti-heroine, falling back on one of the hoariest and most overused of movie cliches in the process. Although Aniston and other cast names will draw distrib and audience interest, this manipulatively layered “Cake” probably won’t rise to the occasion in limited theatrical play and VOD rotation.

From the opening scene of her annoyingly touchy-feely, I-respect-your-feelings support group for sufferers of chronic pain, Claire Simmons (Aniston) has the audience firmly on her side. While everyone else expresses shock and sadness over the loss of one of their own, Nina, who recently »

Review: Jennifer Aniston's impressively raw performance tells her critics to eat 'Cake'

8 September 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto — Chances are that anyone who saw Daniel Barnz's "Phoebe in Wonderland" at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival has been wondering if we'd ever see "that" talented director again. In the years since, he tried to jump on the Ya wagon with the misfire "Beastly" and got terribly lost in the studio world with 2012's "Won't Back Down." He may still be a little rough around the edges, but the Barnz who showed so much promise with "Phoebe" is back with the new drama "Cake," which premiered Monday at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. And as much as "Cake" is something of a comeback for Barnz, it's really on most people's radar for being a rare dramatic turn for Jennifer Aniston, and she doesn't disappoint. We're first introduced to Aniston's character, Claire, at a chronic pain support group trying to cope with the suicide of one of their members, Nina »
