The Greatest Performances Of 2014's First Half

Best Leading Actress: Keira Knightley does her most relaxed and fluid work ever in Begin Again as a musician at a crossroads, never letting any one aspect of the character's situation pigeonhole her emotional responses; Agata Kulesza is an abrasive and evasive presence in her first scenes in Ida as a cynical woman who is »

Christopher McQuarrie Talks ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ and the Unexpected But Necessary Narrative of Filmmaking

3 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

At the start of Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow our hero, Major Bill Cage (Tom Cruise), is a coward. He’s more than ready to run from a fight he knows he’s not equipped for. That’s not the kind of hero we expect from a blockbuster, but it’s the type of subversive choice we should expect from screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, who had a hand in bringing Hiroshi Sakurazak’s graphic novel, All You Need Is Kill, to the big screen. A protagonist unwilling to help save the world isn’t the only fresh idea in Edge of Tomorrow. Even when Cage becomes a fierce soldier, he’s still no match for the bad-ass helicopter-blade-wielding Rita Vrastaski (Emily Blunt). She is the hero of this movie. Vrastaski drives the story. Cruise, once again playing a role a lot of movie stars would pass on, consistently pushed for his co-star to be this film’s »

'Edge of Tomorrow' Writer Reveals Alternate Ending and Discarded Plot Twists

3 July 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Edge of Tomorrow has been hailed by the critics as one of the best movies of the year thus far, although the sci-fi thriller starring Tom Cruise hasn't exactly been setting the box office on fire, at least stateside. The film has only taken in $86.4 million domestically, but it has performed well overseas, with a healthy $320.9 worldwide take from a $178 million production budget. Of course, no one knows why exactly the movie isn't faring as well as many would hope, but it's possible that the controversial ending could have affected the box office receipts. However, according to screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie the ending was originally much, much more complex. Of course, if you haven't seen Edge of Tomorrow yet, there will be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Emily Blunt Dances For Colin Firth In ‘Arthur & Mike’ Clip

3 July 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Super Brit Colin Firth and the hugely talented Emily Blunt unite and escape as Arthur And Mike in this bitter-sweet romance, written by Academy Award nominee, Becky Johnston (Seven Years in Tibet) and we’ve got a clip to share to celebrate the release in cinemas now.

One-time talented golfer, Wallace Avery (Colin Firth) is struggling with a life from which he longs to escape. Faking his own death, he acquires a forged passport and a new identity—that of a golfer named “Arthur Newman”. “Arthur” heads out for Indiana to start a new life and a promise of a new job as a resident golf-pro at a prestigious club. Along the way, he meets the beautiful but troubled Charlotte (Emily Blunt), who is also traveling under a false identity—that of her schizophrenic twin sister, Michaela or “Mike”—and has fled her own home in North Carolina.

Date Movies For Parents: Fourth of July Edition

3 July 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fourth of July evokes memories of fireworks, barbecues, parades...and some of movie history's biggest blockbusters (usually starring Will Smith). Going to the movies has been a holiday weekend tradition in my family since before my husband and I had kids, and sometimes it's nice (and necessary) to have a movie date night that doesn't include transforming dinosaurs or kid flicks. If you and your significant other have a few hours to deck out of the house and see a "grown-up" movie for a change, here are three suggestions.

So get a sitter, head to a theater near you, and walk right past the "Transformers" queue for a satisfying cinematic experience.

"Begin Again" (Rated R)

Directed by: John Carney | Starring: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine | Runtime: 101 minutes

Why It's Worth It: John Carney, who directed the charming musical love story "Once" is again mining the world of singer songwriters in his latest romantic feature. »

Bleak Alternate Edge Of Tomorrow Ending Revealed By Screenwriter

3 July 2014 1:26 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Film School Rejects conducted a rather interesting interview with Edge of Tomorrow' screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie ("Jack Reacher"). In it, the Oscar-winning scribe is asked about two topics that people had the most issues with: excessive exposition and the film's ending. McQuarrie admits that he had to sell director Doug Liman on some of the exposition-heavy scenes. Specifically, when Emily Blunt's character explains the rules to Tom Cruise's Cage. As for the ending, people have voiced their displeasure with how the film concluded. Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers! Spoilers! If you're reading this, you've gotten out. And if you've come this far, maybe you're willing to come a little further. You remember the ending of Edge of Tomorrow, don't you? Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) wakes up without the ability to reset the day. Cage decides to to after the Omega but he'll need some help. So, Cage and Sgt. »

Halfway Mark: The Best Movies of 2014 (so far) Part 2

1 July 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

15. Stranger by the Lake

Directed by Alain Guiraudie

Written by Alain Guiraudie

France

Though Stranger by the Lake premiered at last year’s Cannes Film Festival (and appeared on Sound On Sight’s best of 2013 list), it finally reached North American audiences in January of this year. Alain Guiraudie’s stunning noir-tinged thriller is set entirely against the backdrop of a secluded lake–known to locals as a popular gay cruising spot. A tale of murder complicated by intense sexual obsession (garnering equal parts praise and criticism for its frank depiction of unsimulated gay sex) it accomplishes the rare feat of subtly guiding the way we pay attention to details as we watch. The film’s deceptively simple geography is mapped out as much aurally (and orally) as visually. By the time of the pulse-pounding climax, Guiraudie has masterfully taken hold of all of our senses in an ever-tightening claustrophobic grip. »

29 June 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction has shot straight to number one at the Us box office.

The Michael Bay sequel, starring Mark Wahlberg as a father and failed inventor working with the autobots, took $100m during its opening weekend.

Transformers knocked last week's number one film, Think Like A Man Too, off the top spot and down to number four.

22 Jump Street remains at number two, while How To Train Your Dragon 2 stays in the third spot after taking a little over $13m.

Angelina Jolie's Maleficent stays at five, and Jersey Boys drops two places down to six.

Also falling one place is X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is at number nine with $3.3m.

Remaining in the tenth spot is Jon Favreau's Chef, »

Arthur and Mike Review

27 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Despite being two of the most gifted, sought-after actors in world cinema, it’s something of a surprise to see Colin Firth and Emily Blunt’s Arthur and Mike gain such a low-scale release, with little promotion behind director Dante Ariola’s star-studded, debut endeavour. However the further into this underwhelming picture you get the more apparent it becomes as to why this film has slipped under the radar somewhat, as despite those attached – Arthur and Mike is frustratingly, and overtly, unsubtle.

Firth plays Wallace Avery, a talented golfer who becomes disillusioned with life, and so one day decides to pack up, obtain a brand new identity (‘Arthur Newman’) and leave behind a wife and teenage son, without even the courtesy of a note. While he’s filed under the missing person register, he is in fact embarking on a road trip, seeking pastures new – before he stumbles across the »

David Beckham and Tom Cruise Casually Chat Over a Bottle of Wine

25 June 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

David Beckham and Tom Cruise met up for an adorable man date at The Cow pub in Notting Hill, London, on Monday. The stars were spotted chatting in a corner table while sharing a bottle of red wine, and David also sipped on a pint of Guinness; it's possible that the retired soccer player was checking out a World Cup match at the bar as well. David and Tom, who have been friends since the Beckhams moved to La from England almost a decade ago, are clearly keeping their cute friendship alive despite not being seen out together since an La Kings hockey game back in May 2013. Lately, Tom has been keeping busy promoting his recent action flick, Edge of Tomorrow, a press trip that's taken him around the world. After his meetup with David Beckham, the actor headed to Osaka, Japan, for yet another premiere of the film, which also stars Emily Blunt. »

Into the Woods movie: Stephen Sondheim clarifies censorship comments

24 June 2014 6:23 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Stephen Sondheim has clarified his recent comments about the upcoming Into the Woods movie adaptation.

The legendary composer was recently quoted as saying that the Disney film had removed adult themes from the family-friendly movie.

However, he has now said that he was misquoted and that Rob Marshall's movie is "first rate" and "genuinely collaborative and always productive".

In a statement, Sondheim said that he and writer James Lapine had "worked out every change from stage to screen with the producers and with Rob Marshall".

"Despite what the New Yorker article may convey, the collaboration was genuinely collaborative and always productive," Sondheim insisted. "When the conversation with the teachers occurred, I had not yet seen a full rough cut of the movie."

He continued: "Coincidentally, I saw it immediately after leaving the meeting and, having now seen it a couple of times, I can happily report that it is »

Stephen Sondheim Clarifies Remarks About Changes To Disney's "First-Rate" 'Into The Woods'

23 June 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In a recent story in The New Yorker, Stephen Sondheim had a lot to say about Disney's take on his musical "Into The Woods." While he seemed pragmatic about the whole thing, citing the realities of Disney having to deliver something for families and a mainstream audience, Sondheim has come out today a lot more supportive about the project.  While he was directly quoted about the changes which included Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) not getting killed, and the prince (Chris Pine) and baker's wife (Emily Blunt) not sleeping together, it would appear Sondheim was perhaps putting the cart ahead of the horse. In a statement issued to Playbill, he clarifies that at the time of the quotes, he had not even seen a rough cut of the movie, and moreover asserts he was very involved in the transition to the big screen. In fact, he's now positively happy about the movie overall. »

Rian Johnson in Star Wars talks

20 June 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen has confirmed that the director of Looper is in discussions with Lucasfilm to direct Episode VIII and write a treatment for Episode IX of the Star Wars series.

Johnson discovered international fame as a filmmaker of note following his work on Looper, the 2012 sci-fi time travel mystery that starred Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt.

That followed his breakout Sundance hit Brick. He has also directed The Brothers Bloom and, most recently, several episodes of the TV smash Breaking Bad.

Johnson’s longtime producer Ram Bergman will be among the producers roster for Ep VIII.

Jj Abrams is currently shooting Episode VII at Pinewood in the UK. Cast member Harrison Ford recently injured his ankle during shooting and is expected to return to the set later this summer. That film is scheduled to open through Disney in December 2015.

As previously reported, Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards are on board to direct spin-off films centring on elements »

'Star Wars: Episode VIII' will be directed by 'Looper's' Rian Johnson

20 June 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's been yet another tremor in the force.  After Disney's "Star Wars: Episode VII" hits theaters in 2015, J.J. Abrams will hand the reins to Rian Johnson ("Looper"), who will reportedly write and direct "Episode VIII."  The reports of Johnson's involvement are clouded (by the darkside?), with Deadline reporting that Johnson will write and direct both "VIII" and "IX," and The Wrap stating that he'll only be writing the treatment for "IX." We'll likely know more soon.  Many fans presumed that Abrams would direct all three films in the trilogy, but he only signed on for "Episode VII." The original "Star Wars" trilogy was spilt between three directors (George Lucas, Irvin Kershner and Richard Marquand), while Lucas wrote and directed all three of the prequels himself, starting with 1999's "Phantom Menace."  Johnson previously directed the low budget indies "Brick" and "The Brothers Bloom," as well as several key episodes of "Breaking Bad. »

A first stab at Golden Globe predictions

20 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

We’re still a week and change away from a new set of Oscar predictions, so I figured today I’d mix it up and give you all my first set of Golden Globe predictions. One of the most noteworthy (if not the most important) precursors in terms of testing out winners, the Globes are the second biggest show out there, so you have to take note of them. As such, they get this early treatment in a way that not ever other precursor does. The big difference you’ll see here between the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is that they sometimes go for the bigger names or the bigger production. As such, I’ve moved Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken ahead of Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher here, even though I have the opposite for Oscar. You also lose certain indies, as you’ll see by smaller nomination »
