Mark Wahlberg Vehicle 'The Gambler' Enters Oscar Race, 'Terminator' 6 & 7 Set For 2017 & 2018

6 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We hate to say it, but with certain Hollywood gossip mongers otherwise indisposed at the moment... toldja? A few days ago, we were discussing potential dark horses for the Oscar race, and one of the films we particularly highlighted was "The Gambler," Rupert Wyatt's remake of James Toback's 1974 James Caan vehicle about a college professor with the titular addiction. Penned by Academy Award-winning "The Departed" scribe William Monahan, it now stars Mark Wahlberg, Brie Larson, Jessica Lange and John Goodman. The film was, heretofore, absent from the festival circuit and without a release date, but Paramount has just made their intentions known, announcing via Variety that the film will compete in the awards season this year, opening in limited release on December 19th, before expanding wider on New Year's Day, a similar pattern to the one that Wahlberg's "Lone Survivor" took last year. That film didn't ultimately do »

Paramount doubles down on Mark Wahlberg's 'The Gambler' for 2014 limited release

5 September 2014 9:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I guess it was news that "The Gambler" was getting a limited release in December to qualify for awards. This has been in the cards for a while now. Maybe it was all about settling on a date (or even some soul-searching at Paramount, which will be releasing a bunch of movies over a six-month stretch). The date: Dec. 16. The film is a remake of the 1974 James Caan drama with Mark Wahlberg in the lead. Wahlberg is pretty important to the studio as of late, anchoring the billion-dollar blockbuster "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and whatnot. He dropped a significant amount of weight for the role and could certainly become part of an already over-stuffed Best Actor converstion. But the way I hear it, John Goodman is someone to at least pay attention to in supporting, too. So take all that for what it's worth in early September. The film was »

Mark Wahlberg’s ‘The Gambler’ Set for Awards-Season Run with December Release

5 September 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Pictures has set Mark Wahlberg’s “The Gambler” for an Oscar-qualifying run with a Dec. 19 limited opening and a Jan. 1 expansion.

The Gambler,” also starring Jessica Lange, Michael K. Williams and Brie Larson, is directed by Rupert Wyatt from a William Monahan script.

The Gambler” is a remake of the 1974 James Caan film, written by James Toback, in which a college professor sees his gambling addiction spiral out of control. Toback based the script on his own experiences while teaching in New York City.

Paramount launched development of the project in 2011 with original producers Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff. Stephen Levinson and David Winkler are also producing the remake.

Terminator: Genisys Sequels Get Release Dates; Paramount’s The Gambler to Get Limited 2014 Run

5 September 2014 6:12 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Well, if Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions' fifth installment in the rebooted Terminator franchise is going to bear the title Terminator: Genisys, then it's certainly feasible that the film's follow-ups could be called Terminator: Genisyx and Terminator: Geniseptem, right?  While the titles of the sixth and seventh films may be up for debate, their release dates have now been established.  To further confuse things, even though the fifth film comes out in 2015, the next two in the series won't debut until 2017 and 2018.  And they're being referred to as Terminator 2 and Terminator 3.  Oy.  Hit the jump for more details. As THR reports, here's the current release date calendar for Paramount/Skydance's Terminator reboots: Terminator: Genisys - July 1, 2015 Terminator 2 (or 6) - May 19, 2017 Terminator 3 (or 7) - June 29, 2018 The plan is for the two sequels to film back to back, a plan which will likely hold true as long as the first »

The prequel to co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s 2005 visually groundbreaking film Sin City stars Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin and Eva Green and is scheduled for theatrical release this August.

Eva Green Gets Sexy in Banned 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' TV Spot

14 August 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's another hot night; the kind that makes people do sweaty, secret things." The sexiness of Eva Green has already resulted in one poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For that didn't get approved by the Motion Picture Association of America, and now she's apparently too hot for NBC to handle. A new TV spot has emerged online which was deemed too sexy by the network, and it seems to be because of the same kind of nudity, or maybe the quick flash of sex, that made the poster so scandalous. What else would you expect from Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller, especially after the red band trailer from Comic-Con? Watch! Here's the banned TV spot for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For originally from Moviefone: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the script with William Monahan (The Departed) and Frank Miller, »

Off the Carpet: Will it be Brad vs. Angelina this Oscar season?

4 August 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last week "Boyhood" producer John Sloss asked me why I thought his film could win the Best Picture Oscar this year. Of course, it's only just August, so all you have is the same thing everyone else has: instincts, observation of the lay of the land, etc. And I'm nowhere near calling it for the little engine that could. Rather, I see in it the kind of special quality that tends to light the fuse of many an Oscar winner. But there's plenty that could stand in its way between now and Feb. 22, 2015. Then again, looking ahead at this year's potential Oscar slate, I'm not really sensing a banner year. Many of these films could end up absolute masterworks; we just don't know yet. But in the awards fray, lately I've just been thinking, "I see 'Unbroken' and then I see everything else." Angelina Jolie's upcoming Pow saga about »

Watch: New TV Spot for Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

21 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Later this week, Dimension Films will show off some of the goods from Sin City: A Dame to Kill for at Comic-Con with a panel in Hall H on July 26th with Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller and actors Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin and Rosario Dawson in attendance. But in the meantime, a new TV spot for the graphic novel follow-up has arrived, and it's basically a very condensed version of what we saw in the full theatrical trailer. The film looks gorgeous, and we can't wait to see what Miller and Rodriguez have done with their return to this seedy, grimy film noir tale. Eva Green really does seem like a dame to kill for. The TV spot for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (via ComingSoon): Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the »

Miller & Rodriguez's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Gets a Final Poster

16 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There Is No Justice Without Sin. Dimension Films has unveiled the full poster for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, starring a huge cast including Eva Green as the "dame to kill for" Ava Lord, along with Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Juno Temple and Powers Boothe as Senator Roark. We've seen plenty of trailers before, and the film will get its own panel at Comic-Con, so expect to hear more buzz then. Oddly, this poster features Jessica Alba as Nancy front and center, but looking like she's an undead Beetlejuice-esque Nancy in a studded-leather jacket (MPAA-approved!) with a glowing door randomly put in Rourke's crotch. Here's the new poster for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from IMDb: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez »

Dennis Lehane Gets The Drop on Us

8 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr explores the cinematic adaptations of Dennis Lehane’s work…

‘I have no desire to operate on my own children’

Dennis Lehane explains why he is against adapting his own books.

Best-selling author, Boston native and screenwriter Dennis Lehane has been accused of a few things in life. For instance there are people convinced this author of hard edged thrillers wrote Mystic Pizza. That late eighties, tissue thin chick flick which helped launch Julia Roberts onto the world stage before Gary Marshall, Richard Gere and a Lotus finished the job. Dennis Lehane wrote Mystic River by the way, just to avoid any confusion.

Then there’s the small issue of his fan mail. Not all of it you understand, just the celebrity stuff he continues to receive for writing The Departed. You see his only problem is William Monahan wrote the book, adapted it into a screenplay and received the Oscar. »

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Gets New Quad Poster Across the Pond

23 June 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though The Weinstein Company got some hype from the fact that their Eva Green character poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was deemed too sexy, a new banner from across the pond has surfaced showing off the characters who also got their own character posters earlier this year. But this time, they've also added Bruce Willis alongside cast members from the first film like Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson and new residents like Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin. The most recent full-length trailer definitely took us back to the Sin City we remember, and it should be a darkly fun sequel. Here's the new quad poster from the United Kingdom for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from Empire: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the script with William Monahan (The Departed) and Frank Miller, creator »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Gets A Stylish New Trailer

11 June 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sin City’s where you go in with your eyes open,” says gambler Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) at the beginning of the latest trailer for August’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, “Or you don’t come out at all.” Our previous exposure to the stylized, hyper-violent universe of Sin City have definitely proven that to be the case – and I, for one, cannot wait to dive back in.

This new trailer gives us new footage of returning characters Marv (Mickey Rourke), Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba), Senator Roark (Powers Boothe), Manute (now played by Dennis Haysbert), Gail (Rosario Dawson) and Dwight (now played by Josh Brolin), in addition to new additions like Ava Lord (Eva Green). It’s a sexy, thrilling look at what’s sure to be one of the coolest and best movies of the summer.

“Never lose control, never get the monster out,” says Dwight at »

16 Sequels that Were Better than the First Movie

9 June 2014 9:04 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In today's world of studio movie making, let's face it, it's all about franchising. It's all about the sequels. In fact, this weekend we have two sequels hitting theaters in 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2. The first is a comedy sequel and it's receiving great reviews, despite the fact comedies rarely have good sequels. The second has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of the summer and perhaps the biggest animated movie of 2014. Whyc Sequels sell and if they're good they sell even more. That said, last week I started considering the sequels that were actually better than the original film in any given franchise. This isn't a question of what are the best sequelsc (I've already made that list.) Instead, what sequels managed to exceed the quality and entertainment of the film(s) that came before them. In this sense I have »

Weinsteins' Spark Buzz with Sexy MPAA Banned 'Sin City 2' Poster

29 May 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just a little over a week ago, we got a look at five new character posters for the sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. However, what we didn't see was a poster featuring the titular woman played by Eva Green, and now we know why. Page Six just debuted a new poster featuring the actress, but it was deemed to be too sexy for a sanctioned release by the MPAA “for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.” Clearly this is just The Weinstein Company trying to stir up some controversy to get some buzz around their late summer release, but you can't deny that's a damn sexy poster. Look now! Here's the sexy, unapproved poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from Page Six: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote »
