Let’s Take 5 Minutes to Appreciate ‘Edge of Tomorrow’s Practical Effects

19 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As you all know, Edge of Tomorrow is the story of a man facing a grueling mid-life crisis who can only save himself by escaping a workday grind where every day poses the exact same set of existential irritations and wide-mouthed aliens who want to blow him into tiny bits. We’ve all been there. The movie required a lot of projectiles and explosions for Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to run away from (or to), and this B-roll footage (via ScreenSlam) shows the pair doing their own stunts while practical fireballs blaze in the background. It’s tough to say whether Edge of Tomorrow had more practical special effects than other big action flicks (I once saw a car thrown at another car while driving near the Transformers set), but it definitely feels like it. The kind of explosions and stunts they’re pulling off without CGI are really fantastic. The »

Updated 2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress and Supporting Actress

11 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

So the Best Actor field is packed ehc Well, that's nothing new and the lack of surprise when it comes to the field of contenders continues when we look at the Best Actress category, which I chopped down to 17 contenders from my initial 28 as several films such as Suite Francaise, Carol, Suffragette and others won't be hitting theaters this year and even if they did, they would have needed the fall film festival bump to get word started and that time has come and gone. Speaking of which, With Telluride, Venice and Toronto behind us and New York on the horizon, let's see how the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress fields have changed since the last update and what we should be looking out for in the future. Best Actress I have kept Amy Adams (Big Eyes) at the top of the Best Actress chart even though the way »

James Corden Set For CBS ‘Late Late Show’ Slot

8 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS will replace the quirky Craig Ferguson in its post-midnight “Late Late Show” with British actor James Corden, in what looks to be the last – at least for now – of a major series of talent shifts in wee-hours programming set off in large part by David Letterman’s decision to leave his CBS roost some time next year.

In doing so, CBS is likely hoping the new host’s experience in British TV and Broadway will help expand the appeal of “The Late Late Show” despite competition. On NBC, “Late Night with Seth Meyers” gets a heady lead-in from the new “Tonight,” helmed by Jimmy Fallon, and also enjoys a wide level of recognition from the host’s years on “Saturday Night Live.” Both have helped his program win move viewers overall and more in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 demographic than “Late Late Show.” On ABC, “Nightline” has also often outmaneuvered »

'Black Widow' : "Interview"

6 September 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ Marvel Studios' favorite 'Black Widow', as actress Scarlett Johansson poses for revealing photos in a past issue of "Interview" magazine:

March 2009, Johansson first signed on to play Marvel Comics' Russian spy 'Natasha Romanoff' aka the 'Black Widow' in the feature "Iron Man 2", as an undercover spy for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' posing as an assistant to 'Tony Stark' (Robert Downey Jr.) aka 'Iron Man'.

She was cast only after a scheduling conflict forced actress Emily Blunt to drop out of the part.

Johansson then reprised the role in director Joss Whedon's "The Avengers" (2012) confirming that Marvel was "really behind" the character. She portrayed Black Widow again in the 2014 feature "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

And in the Marvel Studios' sequel "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron", Johansson plays the character on film for an unprecedented fourth time, »

Summer Film Budgets vs. Total Worldwide Grosses

2 September 2014 6:51 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

While studios tout records, market share and No. 1 status based on box office grosses, we thought it’d be a good idea to look at some of this year’s summer films (tentpoles and not) to see how their budgets stacked up against their worldwide grosses to date. These budget numbers do not include domestic/international marketing and distribution costs, nor do they take into account the splits with exhibitors, but they do give an idea of outlay and income. Bear in mind, that while some of the biggest offshore grosses come from China, the studios are only getting a 25% cut from that territory. Also, some of these pictures will end up doing well in home entertainment and may make a profit over time — as in, a few years.

Here are some of the films we were able to compile from smallest to highest budgets with worldwide grosses (and percentage »

Edge Of Tomorrow (Finally) Crosses $100M At The Domestic Box Office; $364M Total

2 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow was probably one of the biggest surprises of the summer. The critically acclaimed film was based on the Japanese novel All You Need Is Kill and starred superstar Tom Cruise as Lt. Col. William Cage & the very talented Emily Blunt as the Full Metal Bitch, Rita Vrataski. It may have taken a while, but this past Labor Day weekend has helped the film cross the $100M domestic mark, making this Tom Cruise's first non-Mission: Impossible film to cross $100M domestic in nine years, since War of the Worlds (not counting Tropic Thunder). The film stumbled at its opening, grossing $28.7M, and was quickly written off by many as a box office bomb. However, thanks to Cruise's international appeal and good word of mouth, it managed to show its worth throughout the summer and became a sleeper hit, grossing over $364M worldwide, making »

8 Stars Toronto Could Do Without at Tiff

2 September 2014 2:10 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no secret that stars aren't always on their best behaviour at all times. After all, when the whole world worships you, it can pretty easily go straight to your head. It can make you believe that the same rules of etiquette (and even the law) don't apply to you. You're above it.

We've all heard whispers of Mariah's demands for white furniture, Beyonce's insistence on brand-new toilet seats and Britney's strict orders for Cheetos and cheeseburgers. But diva behavior isn't limited to divas. A handful of actors have infamously worn out their welcome on the Toronto Film Festival's red carpet with their diva antics and entitled behaviour. And hey, we're Canadian; that kind of attitude doesn't really fly at the film festival renowned for bringing stars and regular folks together to bask in a mutual love of cinema.

While most stars are nothing but gracious at Tiff, there are a few whose ridiculous demands, »

Rumor: Marvel Rethinking How to Introduce Ms. Marvel?

28 August 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Many have been vocal about the need for more female superheroes, perhaps more so than ever, and Kevin Feige has admitted that the team at Marvel is paying attention.  There’s been talk about Ms. Marvel making a big screen appearance for quite some time now.  Remember that rumor from two years ago claiming that Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson were top choices for the character? In the comics, the members of the Avengers are always changing, so it’ll always be tough to pinpoint who’s in, who’s out, who will join an ensemble film and who will get their own, however, there have been reports floating around claiming that Ms. Marvel could make her way into a close-approaching Marvel film and pave the way to Phase Three in the process.  But now Marvel's plans for introducing Ms. Marvel into the McU may be changing.  Hit the jump for more. »

Meryl Streep’s witch featured in latest Into the Woods image

28 August 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Empire Online we’ve got a new still from Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) upcoming fairy tale musical Into the Woods featuring Meryl Streep (August: Osage County), who plays a witch responsible for putting a curse on a baker and his wife, played by James Corden (One Chance) and Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow). Take a look…

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.“

Into the Woods is set for release »

Fresh Look At Meryl Streep's Into The Woods Witch

27 August 2014 9:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Continuing our sneak peek at the winter preview in the new issue of Empire, here's a fresh look at Meryl Streep in Rob Marshall's film adaptation of Into The Woods, the Stephen Sondheim musical that takes a whole lot of fairytales, smashes them together and then royally messes them up.This still clearly comes from the scene, glimpsed in the trailer below, where Streep bursts in on the baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt - wait, does that make no sense as a pairing to anyone else?). They wished to have children, but a curse was laid on the baker's father by the witch decades before, and the only way she's willing to lift it is if they find her four ingredients for a potion. Cue a quest that brings them into conflict with other fairytale characters, some of them rather different to how you remember.And »

Top Five Movies of the Summer

26 August 2014 11:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »
