Venice Film Review: ‘Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)’

27 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A quarter-century after “Batman” ushered in the era of Hollywood mega-tentpoles — hollow comicbook pictures manufactured to enthrall teens and hustle merch — a penitent Michael Keaton returns with the comeback of the century, “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance),” a blisteringly hot-blooded, defiantly anti-formulaic look at a has-been movie star’s attempts to resuscitate his career by mounting a vanity project on Broadway. , that will electrify the industry, captivate arthouse and megaplex crowds alike, send awards pundits into orbit and give fresh wings to Keaton’s career.

Keaton was a controversial choice to play the Caped Crusader back in 1989, though the role was the best and worst thing that could have happened to the “Mr. Mom” star, who became world-renowned but never found another role of that stature — and who didn’t get nearly the same boost from working with Tarantino (on »

Top Five Movies of the Summer

Luke Owen with his top five movies of the summer…

5. Godzilla

Celebrating 60 years of destruction, the King of the Monsters made his return to the big screen in this American reboot to the classic series. Godzilla saw Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as a husband and wife duo who are trying to reunite after The Big G shows up and starts tearing through cities chasing after alien-like creature M.U.T.O.

Director Gareth Edwards clearly loved the classic Godzilla movies from the character’s 50s and 60s heydays as the movie was a call back to those films. It had a slow, methodical pace and it focused on the human characters and their dramas while Godzilla fought in the background as the ever looming presence and metaphor for nuclear war. Sadly, the movie only takes our fifth spot here as the human element (including »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Praised by Marvel's Kevin Feige

26 August 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the biggest movies of the year, taking in $232 million at the box office, although that tally falls shy of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy ($251 million) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($259 million). However, X-Men: Days of Future Past has earned more globally ($744.6 million) than any other superhero movie this year.

The success of X-Men: Days of Future Past has even impressed Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, even though he had nothing to do with the movie whatsoever. During a recent interview with Empire, Kevin Feige revealed he's been thinking about how that movie helped bring the X-Men franchise back into prominence.

"I've been thinking about Days of Future Past a lot, which I had nothing to do with, in terms of the resurrection of a franchise. I think they did a very good job with that."

"This is awesome, and I'm at a loss for words," True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga said while accepting the Emmy award for outstanding directing Monday night. He was talking about his win, but he might have unintentionally been speaking for the thousands of viewers and fans of the show who never knew that Fukunaga was, well, so good-looking. Since the world was introduced to the man behind True Detective, the Internet has been positively awash with paeans to Fukunaga - including the jaw-dropping admission that he got his start working on the music video for Destiny Child's "Survivor," giving »

Exploring The Best, And Worst, Of On-Screen Chemistry In Film

26 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have it. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender have it. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have it. Will Ferrell and his Anchorman news team had it. Nicole Kidman’s most recent film was taken out of competition at Cannes partly because of not having it. Joaquin Phoenix had it with a voice and a screen. Sherlock Holmes has relied on it for years. The thing that such a diverse range of situations has in common? It is of course the great building block of human life: Chemistry.

When it comes to movies and people, we’re very familiar with chemistry. Generally used to describe a certain quality of relationship between characters, chemistry is a neat little word that we often use without a second thought. And on the surface, chemistry does look pretty simple – like, for example, when a science teacher puts a Mento in a »

Step aside, Jon Hamm. Matthew McConaugh-who? Last night’s Emmy Awards proved that True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga is hotter than any A-lister we’ve previously coveted, and that man braids are making a big comeback. The internet thinks so, too.

Fukunaga has come a long way since his days as a production assistant for the Destiny’s Child “Survivor” video. Before linking up with the True Detective team, he made a name for himself on the indie circuit with Sundance hit Sin Nombre in 2009, as well as 2011′s Jane Eyre, starring Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska. He directed all eight episodes of the HBO series, and won the award for Outstanding Directing of a Drama Series. When he did, Twitter exploded.

Ridley Scott Praises Blade Runner 2 Script and Offers a Prometheus 2 Update

25 August 2014 5:47 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Director Sir Ridley Scott has a number of projects in the pipeline, and with Exodus: Gods and Kings set to be released this December, his next looks set to be  The Martian, starring Matt Damon, for 2015.

So, where does that leave the long talked about Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus sequels?

Both movies are expected at some point in the next few years, but neither have a firm production start date as of yet. They do however have writers attached, with Green Lantern’s Michael Green the latest to be attached to a Blade Runner follow-up. In a recent interview, Scott was quick to praise the now finished script.

“It’s written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident,” he said, referring to Harrison Ford’s accident on the set of Star Wars. So yes, that will happen. »

'Prometheus 2' May Be Postponed by 'Blade Runner 2'

25 August 2014 4:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Ridley Scott has quite a number of projects on his slate, including The Martian, the Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2. The filmmaker reveals in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly that all of those projects are written, although there may be some scheduling issues.

Back in May, Alcon Entertainment officially asked Harrison Ford to return as Deckard in the Untitled Blade Runner Project, and the filmmaker later confirmed that the actor will be involved.

"It's written and it's damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years - despite the accident (referring to Ford's Star Wars injury). So yes, that will happen."

The filmmaker claims that Blade Runner 2 may go into production soon after his next project, The Martian, which may not leave much time for him to make Prometheus 2, which is already slated for release on March 4, 2016.

Bart & Fleming: Fest Fight Pits Telluride V Toronto; TV News Overkill In Ferguson?

24 August 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business.

Bart: Have you noticed, Mike, that the gamesmanship of pre-festival season is often more entertaining than the fest movies themselves? Toronto has slammed the door on distributors who were sneaking their films into Telluride, then billing Toronto screenings as World Premieres.

Fleming: Labor Day Weekend for me is about getting kids back to school and squeezing the last moments of a summer that has flown by. I have never been to Telluride because the last thing I want to do is spend that holiday weekend in a succession of dark rooms in Colorado. Toronto is my favorite festival. It’s a wonderful platform for distributors to acquire films after seeing how they play to an audience, and to launch »
