Billy Mitchell Reflects on The King of Kong

31 December 2010 3:26 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Moviefone caught up with Billy Mitchell, the "Donkey Kong" game record-holder who appeared in the 2007 documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters," to talk about how his life changed since the film was released. There has been talks of New Line Cinema turning the documentary into a feature film with director Seth Gordon (Four Christmases, The King of Kong) at the helm. Mitchell confirmed that there is interest in a feature film, but doesn't know if there has been any progress. He is also asked how he feels about being portrayed as a villain. Watch the video below to hear his reply, which includes a part where he says that he is now being recognized by fans 7 days out of a week, a jump from being recognized only 6 days per week before "King of Kong" was released.

Billy Mitchell Reflects on The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters

30 December 2010 8:52 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the best documentaries of 2007 was Seth Gordon's The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.  The film told the story of everyman Steve Wiebe and his quest to land the all-time high score on Donkey Kong.  However, Wiebe must contend with the villainous Billy Mitchell, who not only holds the high score, but is somehow powerful enough to make sure that everything works against Wiebe.  Of course, that's the narrative Gordon chose for his film and it shouldn't be forgotten that Wiebe, Mitchell, and everyone depicted in the movie is more complicated than they appear. Mitchell recently did an interview where he reflected on the movie.  While it sounds like he has mixed feelings on the experience, he says he doesn't regret doing the movie and that now he's recognized every day of the week as opposed to the measly six out of seven days he was getting before. »

Sick of Sundance's tendency to celebrate known-faces over independent films? Look no further than the Slamdance Film Festival, that will celebrate its 17th iteration with the fest kicking off on January 21, 2011. Having a Slice/Sprite type of relationship with Sundance (which begins only a day before), the event is known for its nurturing love for all that it is underground cinema, discovering filmmakers like Jared Hess ("Napoleon Dynamite"), Seth Gordon ("The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters") and Marc Forster ("Monster's Ball"). More obscure films and filmmakers that they have highlighted in the past include "Paranormal Activity" and… »

29 November 2010 3:00 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

If you’ve not seen Seth Gordon’s wonderful documentary about the rivalry of Donkey Kong maestros Steve Weibe and Billy Mitchell then you really must check out The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters as soon as possible.

It’s a great film regardless of your interest in video games of any era, and this new project from Anthony Caulfield and Nicola Caulfield looks set to plunder the same rose tinted depths to bring us a history of video games, from Apple to the beloved Zx Spectrum and from, as the title suggests, from the humble origins of the bedroom coder to billion dollar industry we now enjoy.

Here’s the official word,

This documentary movie is about the remarkable and true story of how a small number of individuals from around the world, whose creativity and vision pioneered in shaping the billion dollar video games industry which today, »

First Look: ‘Horrible Bosses’

24 November 2010 5:24 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Warner Bros. have unveiled the first image and synopsis from Horrible Bosses, the upcoming comedy from director Seth Gordon (King of Kong, Four Christmases). The film stars Seth Gordon, Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Jason Bateman, Jason Sudekis, Charlie Day, in a film described thus:

For Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Spacey, Farrell, Aniston) into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con (Foxx), the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently. There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.

Horrible Bosses is released next year… »

First Look At The Comedy Team From Horrible Bosses

24 November 2010 5:17 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warner Bros. has released several images and synopses for its 2011 comedy line-up including Crazy, Something Borrowed, and Hall Pass, but the most exciting release is this first image from Horrible Bosses which shows off maybe the funniest comedy trio since the Three Amigos. Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day spread hilarity on SNL and It.s Always Sunny respectively, and Jason Bateman... well, he.s Jason Bateman, goddamn it. He was on Arrested Development for Christ.s sake. The man knows comedy. This team has joined forces for Seth Gordon who has given us quite a spread of content. His comedy background has him directing at least one episode of each of the NBC Thursday shows (save 30 Rock), Community, The Office, and Parks and Recreation, as well as an episode of Modern Family. The film.s support is also very impressive. Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx, Kevin Spacey, Donald Sutherland, »

Christian Slater is ‘Breaking In’ to Comedy For Fox; Replacing ‘Running Wilde’

20 November 2010 7:13 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Christian Slater is returning to television with Breaking In… Only this time, he’s going to be funny – we hope.

Shortly after the news that Fox would not be ordering any more episodes of Will Arnett’s failed series Running Wilde, it was announced that the network would be picking up the Sony TV/Happy Madison produced comedy series.

If you’re unfamiliar with Breaking In, here’s the official synopsis from Fox:

Breaking In is an offbeat half-hour workplace comedy about a high-tech security firm that takes extreme – and often questionable – measures to sell their protection services. Created by Adam F. Goldberg (“Fanboys”) and Seth Gordon (“Four Christmases” and the upcoming “Horrible Bosses”), the series centers on a team of uniquely skilled oddball geniuses hand-picked to work for a manipulative mastermind. Starring Christian…

Fringe Moves to Friday as Fox Announces Midseason Series Premieres for Mixed Signals, Bob’S Burgers, Breaking In and American Idol

19 November 2010 10:05 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Today Fox became the second network to announce their schedule changes for current running series and premiere dates for the new midseason series hitting the air next year. First up, the biggest and most worrisome change comes in the form of J.J. Abrams sci-fi procedural Fringe being pushed to Fridays in 2011. As many TV buffs know, a Friday air date is usually the beginning of the end for any series, and since Fringe hasn’t been faring as well as it used to in the ratings, this definitely isn’t a good sign.

For more midseason schedule changes including new time periods for Human Target and Bones as well as premiere information for Fox’s new midseason series, hit the jump.

First up, Fox is looking to add another animated family to their Animation Domination line-up with Bob’s Burgers (watch the trailer right here ), a comedy about a man, »

Christian Slater will be 'Breaking In' to his first comedy series on Fox

19 November 2010 3:37 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Fox has ordered seven episodes of the half-hour comedy Breaking In, starring Christian Slater and Reaper’s Bret Harrison, the network confirms. It will premiere Wednesday, April 6. The show, created by Adam F. Goldberg (Fanboys) and Seth Gordon (Four Christmases), is set at a high-tech security firm that takes extreme — and often questionable — measures to sell their protection services. As the logline explains, Contra Security, corporate America’s answer to The A-Team, gives clients a sense of security by first ripping it away. Hence the title, Breaking In. Slater stars as Oz, the mastermind described as a man of mystery and a master of manipulation. »

Christian Slater gives it a go at Fox for 'Breaking In'

19 November 2010 3:36 PM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Christian Slater is heading back to the smallscreen. Nellie Andreeva at Deadline reports that Fox has green lit the comedy "Breaking In" starring Slater for midseason with a seven-episode order. The series is a Sony Pictures TV produced effort which possibly spells trouble for the stinker comedy, "Running Wilde," which premiered in the fall. Written by Adam F. Goldberg and directed/executive produced by Seth Gordon, Deadline claims the show had "buzz" and "tested very well but ultimately missed the cut" for the fall lineup. Slater's 2008 series "My Own Worst Enemy" was a decent spy romp for NBC but was cut down in one season. His recent ABC series "The Forgotten" was axed by the network back »

It's Official: Fox Picks Up Christian Slater Comedy 'Breaking In' For Midseason

19 November 2010 1:06 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Fox has picked up comedy pilot Breaking In for midseason with a seven-episode order. The order comes after several weeks of negotiations between Fox and the project's producer Sony Pictures TV. The single-camera workplace comedy starring Christian Slater is being rumored as a possible replacement for Fox's  underperforming fall comedy Running Wilde, which has not received a back order. It is expected to be featured on Fox's upcoming midseason schedule. The Sony TV/Happy Madison-produced Breaking In, which is set at a digital security firm, was developed last season. The pilot, written /exec produced by Adam F. Goldberg and directed/exec produced by Seth Gordon, had buzz and tested very well but ultimately missed the cut for a series pickup at Fox in May. In June, the network gave it a new lease of life with an order for 2 additional scripts, leading to Sony TV's decision to extend the options on the cast, »

Fox Eyes Midseason Order For 'Breaking In'

Exclusive: Last season's Fox comedy pilot Breaking In may make it to the air after all. I hear the network is in negotiations with Sony Pictures TV  to pick up the  project starring Christian Slater to series for midseason.

Review: Freakanomics

22 October 2010 6:42 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

There’s nothing film studios love more than getting the movie rights to a hit book. But how do you adapt a work like Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner’s 2005 best seller Freakanomics that consists as mainly a series of essays into one feature film? Well, they decided to make it like a series of short films ala Woody Allen’s film of Every Thing You Always Wanted To Know About Sex… and Mel Brooks’s The History Of The World Part One. Using the anthology format they decide to have each segment directed by different filmmakers as in New York Stories and Four Rooms.  The resulting film is a mixed bag, but an interesting experiment contrasting the styles of several contemporary documentarians.

The introductory and transitional scenes of the authors are directed by Seth Gordon(The King Of Kong) using a mix of live talking head interviews and animation. »
