Best bit of Taylor Swift's 'Blank Space' Ama number were her dancer's terrified faces

23 November 2014 6:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Taylor Swift was the opening musical act for the 2014 American Music Awards. The country turned pop sensation gave an eye-popping rendition of “Blank Space,” a send-up to her public persona. But we were all so focused on the elaborate set pieces and Swift’s convincing crazy eyes, we missed out on several obvious cries for help from the back-up dancers. Gif via MTV These are men in fear for their very lives...Or fantastic actors. Either/or. #1. Poor budget Taylor Lautner is frozen with fear. He knows this is a trap, he’s just not sure how. Photo via Tumblr #2. Gothic Chad did not sign up to be shaken like a Polaroid picture. This is man in the throes of realization he’s made a terrible mistake. Photo via Tumblr #3. Tweedle Twins stare in frozen horror. Where will Swift strike next? Stage left of stage right? What can men do against such reckless method acting! »

Taylor Swift Gave Up on Men After Split with Ex Boyfriend Harry Styles

16 November 2014 3:38 PM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Taylor Swift gave up on men because she wanted people to focus more on her music. The 'Shake It Off' hitmaker said after her relationship with One Direction's Harry Styles ended in early 2013, she made a conscious decision to ensure that the public would focus less of their attention on her love life and more on her musical talents. The 24-year-old beauty - whose latest album '1989' is out now - explained: "It broke my heart! I was selling out stadiums and it was all people talked about." Taylor's new album sold more than one million copies in the first week, and she's delighted the world is interested in her vocal talents, rather than her relationships. The star - who's dated the likes of Taylor Lautner and John Mayer - told Us Weekly: "Now people talk less about the things that don't matter." Taylor also admitted that one »

Nicolas Cage’s ‘The Trust’ Earned By Saban Films – Afm

6 November 2014 3:20 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Haim Saban’s indie distribution outfit Saban Films has acquired North American rights to the Nicolas Cage-starring crime thriller The Trust. Ben Brewer and Adam Hirsch co-wrote and Ben and Alex Brewer are co-directing the pic, which is in preproduction in Las Vegas.

The Trust centers on two crooked cops who discover a hidden safe, the contents of which will lead them down a deadly road of corruption with no one left to trust — not even themselves. Molly Hassell and Braxton Pope are producing the Hassell Free Production in association with Electric Shadow Fund which is providing finance. Mike Nilon and Hfg’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier are exec producing. Highland Film Group is handling worldwide sales as it has since the project first surfaced this spring in Cannes.

Saban Films made the scene in Cannes by with its first buy, the Tommy Lee Jones Western The Homesman, »

AFM: New Distributors Energize Indie Market

5 November 2014 10:08 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With the seven major studios devoting increasing focus on tentpoles, the indie sector is seeing a welcome emergence of new distributors.

The biggest splash this year has come from 6-month-old Saban Films, which bought three films — John Travolta’s “The Forger,” Taylor Lautner’s “Tracers” and Hayden Christensen’s “American Heist” — at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival. That’s been a tonic to the volatile world of independent producers.

The label is looking for mid-range commercial fare and the occasional prestige title — such as “The Homesman,” starring Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank, which it acquired at Cannes. It’s the first release from Saban Films, opening Nov. 14 as awards season gains traction, and should send a message to the industry.

“Releasing ‘The Homesman’ shows that we’re in this seriously,” Saban Films president Bill Bromiley says.

Another upstart making waves is Broad Green Pictures, which picked up “99 Homes,” starring »

DVD Review – Godzilla (2014)

27 October 2014 3:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Godzilla, 2014

Directed by Gareth Edwards

Starring Aaron Taylor-JohnsonElizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, Carson Bolde, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche and David Strathairn

Synopsis:

The world’s most famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Having torn up movie screens for 60 years, Godzilla is now a staple part of pop culture and an icon of the giant movie genre. Sadly however, he is perhaps best known outside of his homeland of Japan for the abysmal 1998 Roland Emmerich attempt to Westernise the King of the Monsters. Directed by a man who had no interest in the character or history, Emmerich’s Godzilla was more or less a rubbish remake of The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms rather than a new beginning for The Big G. Thankfully, the reigns of the franchise have been handed to British director Gareth Edwards, a man who »

Taylor Swift Reveals '1989' Tracklist (and We Guess Who Each Song Is About)

22 October 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Harry Styles, we see you.

Are we out of the woods yet (Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods yet? Are we out of the woods? Are we in the clear yet? Are we in the clear?)

If “the woods” is that soul-crushing period of time spent anticipating Taylor Swift’s new album, 1989, instead of having it and listening to it, then no, we’re not. #FiveDaysStrong

But she did release the tracklist on Instagram:

The full track list. #TS1989

News: Taylor Swift needs bodyguards to protect her from murderers

Taylor slammed critics who criticize her for singing about relationships and her exes as “sexist,” and we agree. Going one step further, we love that she sings about her exes and puts them on blast via the Top 40. And we love speculating which of those exes inspired which songs »

Want to Turn Into a Movie Werewolf? You’ll Need a Pupal Stage

22 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Driven by the full moon, I’ve been moving through the Universal classics at a steady pace, including 1941’s The Wolf Man starring Lon Chaney Jr., as well as its sequels Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, House of Frankenstein, House of Dracula and the farcical Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. The transformation of the character of Lawrence Talbot (Chaney) into the Wolf Man was groundbreaking back in the 40s, and it still looks great on screen today. Of course, modern movies employ heavy CG work, often leaving practical effects in the dust. That’s why we are treated to shots of a shirtless Taylor Lautner morphing mid-leap into his baby-mind-raping teen wolf form in the Twilight movies. As effects have gotten more sophisticated, scenes of werewolf transformation have become more fantastical and less realistic. But what would a more “realistic” transformation be like? What would a real Wolf Man be like? The »

"I used to be fascinated by romance," Taylor Swift says. "Now I'm more realistic." Indeed she is. After enduring high-profile breakups with Joe Jonas, Conor Kennedy, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer and Harry Styles (to name a few), the "Shake It Off" singer, 24, has sworn off men for now. "The last couple of years have been about defining life on my own terms," the pop star explains in People's 40th anniversary issue. "Being on my own, prioritizing my girlfriends, my family and my music above everything else and trying things I never thought I'd try. It's a really liberating and freeing time."

Kristen Stewart's killer year continues with 'Camp X-Ray' trailer, 'Still Alice' Oscar push

6 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Which 'Twilight' alum is having the best year? Though Robert Pattinson dished out schizophrenic violence in "Rover" and a slimier charm in "Maps to the Stars" (now arriving before the end of 2014), Kirsten Stewart may come out on top, with a twofer knockout of "Camp X-Ray" and "Still Alice" arriving this awards season. Often slammed for her introverted, fragile performances, Stewart dives into both diametric roles — a loner Guantanamo Bay guard and a loving-but-terrified daughter — and between them, audiences should finally get a sense of her range. Somewhere, Taylor Lautner waits for the green light on "Abduction 2." "Camp X-Ray" saw mixed reviews out of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival (our own Drew McWeeny found the focus and pace of writer-director Peter Sattler's feature frustrating), but Stewart earned praise across the board. A new trailer presents that character-driven take on the hot-button issue of "terrorist" imprisonment and the kind of stress »

New Distributors Saban, Broad Green, Bleecker Street, Clarius Shake Up Indie Scene

24 September 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Four months into its existence, Saban Films made a serious statement at the Toronto Film Festival as it bought three films — John Travolta’s “The Forger,” Taylor Lautner’s “Tracers” and Hayden Christensen’s “American Heist.”

“That’s what we were here to do,” said Saban Films president Bill Bromiley. “Toronto is always a good place for acquisitions.”

Bromiley should know. Before signing on to the Saban post in the spring, he’d been the key acquisitions exec for Image Entertainment.

Saban’s first purchase came at Cannes when it acquired Tommy Lee Jones’ “The Homesman.” It’s also developing a reboot of the Power Rangers franchise.

“We’ve stuck to our business plan by focusing on commercial high-quality product, with ‘The Homesman’ being a prestige title.”

Bromiley also said he was a bit disappointed over the overall quality of films for sale at Tiff — with one notable exception: forereclusure drama “99 Homes, »

Jeremy Renner Talks 'Hansel & Gretel 2' Return; Will It Happen?

23 September 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, news broke that writer-director Tommy Wirkola had finished the script for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2, but he was unsure whether or not star of the original, Jeremy Renner, would be able to return. Now, Cinema Blend has reached out to the actor for his answer, and while he doesn't know if he can squeeze this sequel into his schedule, he wouldn't balk at returning to the role of Hansel.

Jeremy Renner is not signed for a sequel. When Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters came out, it was not considered to be a franchise contender, and was even moved by the studio from its original March 2012 release date to January of last year, which is viewed as a dumping ground for films that are potential money losers. The movie proved to be a hit, though, pulling in $226 million worldwide from a $50 million production budget. A sequel was green lit, »

Tiff 2014: How Chris Rock, New Distribution Blood Fueled Film Deals

21 September 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

As the final acquisition deals roll in on Toronto’s 2014 film festival movies, a couple of overriding themes emerged that bode well for the appetite for indie fare and have sellers smacking their lips for Afm, Sundance, Berlin and beyond. In a fest where Harvey Weinstein left his checkbook home and didn’t make a single splashy deal, I have never seen so many new players make statement buys at a festival than happened in Toronto.

The other intriguing development came on the fest’s biggest deal, when Paramount Pictures swooped into the auction of the Chris Rock-directed comedy Top Five, and blew buyers out of the water by paying $12.5 million for worldwide rights. It was the second straight fest where Paramount did this, after the studio made a precedent-setting pre-buy Cannes deal for the Denis Villeneuve-directed Amy Adams sci-fi film Story Of Your Life.
