Bullock's 'Crisis' Dated, Oscar Predictions Updated

27 July 2015 12:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. has officially dated David Gordon Green's political thriller Our Brand is Crisis starring Sandra Bullock and Billy Bob Thornton for a Oct. 30 release date, just ahead of tomorrow's Toronto Film Festival lineup being announced. Coincidencec Not likely, though I could just be hopefully optimistic. The film is an adaptation of the 2005 documentary of the same name, which follows a group of American consultants who accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected. Bullock plays maverick political consultant, "Calamity" Jane Bodine, who comes out of retirement to lead the team, while Thornton portrays her nemesis, Pat Candy. Zoe Kazan, Anthony Mackie, Scoot McNairy, Ann Dowd and Joaquim de Almeida co-star. As far as Oscar predictions are concerned, I previously neglected to include Bullock on my list of Best Actress contenders, a shameful enough move that she's now debuting in my #5 slot as I shuffled the deck »

Anthony Mackie, Scoot McNairy, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd, Reynaldo Pacheco, Dominic Flores, Louis Arcella, Octavio Gomez Berrios and Joaquim de Almeida also star.

Big Significant Things | Review

Eager Yet Flawed: Indie Darling is Safe-Guarded and Traditional

Brian Reisberg‘s debut feature has many of the usual markings of an indie sleeper hit but like an overzealous student whose hand is always first in the air, the rule-abiding road movie delivers all the correct answers, too determined to please. Relying heavily on both the traditional, and the familiar, the premise behind Big Significant Things does hold plenty of promise, and when boiled down, the protagonist, conflict, and plot points all recall rather than reinvent (think Garden State).

Twenty-something Craig Harrison (Harry Lloyd of Manhattan and The Theory of Everything), who fits neatly within the mold of a typical White male with early-onset ennui, attempts to temper his quarter-life crisis through a solo road trip across the South. Fleeing from the looming decision of purchasing a home in San Francisco (perhaps the most unrealistic part of the film) with »

Watch: Trailer For Webseries ‘The Walker’ Starring Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan, Gabourey Sidibe & More

22 July 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With so many streaming outlets now available, it seems everyone on the web wants to launch their own arm of original programming. And so it goes with lifestyle site Refinery29 who have rounded up a pretty starry ensemble for their webseries "The Walker" (which isn't to be confused with the Paul Schrader film of the same name). Carey Mulligan, Zoe Kazan, Gabourey Sidibe, and more feature in the show that will follow a real life celebrity bestie (apparently) Rightor Doyle, in a scripted version of what he encounters day-to-day. “'The Walker' is an exploration of how friendships can be the most loving, confounding and rewarding relationships in your life,” he told Et. “It is my love letter to women, and to New York, and to friendship in all its many wild and wonderful forms.” I dunno, sounds like "Look At My Fabulous Life: The Show," but we'll see. »

This year's Emmy Award nominations have been announced and "Game of Thrones" topped the list with a whopping 24 nominations, followed by "American Horror Story: Freak Show" with 19 noms and "Olive Kitteridge" with 13.

HBO was by far the network to be with 124 nominations in total across the prime time and technical categories. They were followed by ABC (42), CBS & NBC (41), FX (38), Fox (35), Netflix (34), PBS (29), Comedy Central (25) and AMC (24).

There was some excellent and overdue casting nominations such as Tatiana Maslany for "Orphan Black" and Taraji P. Henson for "Empire," along with the new 'Limited Series' element and more suitable classifications for some »

Minions | Review

10 July 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Villain’s Vassals: Coffin & Balda’s Slavish Prequel Void of Thought

Co-directors Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda team up for Minions, a tangential prequel to the 2010 animated hit, Despicable Me. Coffin, who co-directed the first film and its 2013 sequel with Chris Renaud (who helmed the ill-conceived adaptation of Dr. Seuss’s beloved The Lorax with Balda back in 2012), deigns to explain the origin story of the little yellow creatures endlessly committing to serving the famed uber villain Gru. It’s an idea rather like the relationship of the film Annabelle (2014) to The Conjuring (2013).

Writer Brian Lynch (Puss in Boots; Hop; the upcoming The Secret Life of Pets), no stranger to creating animated versions of animal characters for children’s films, seems to have less capacity in the formulation of imaginary beings, at least judging from the endless one-note antics engaged in by these rudimentary shaped yellow blobs akin to cutesy antics, »

Superman takes on Wonder Woman in storyboard art from George Miller’s Justice League Mortal

1 June 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of a documentary following the development of the failed Justice League Mortal, we’ve started to see a lot more of what could have been. We’ve seen some concept art for Aquaman and Wonder Woman as well as a sculpture of Martian Manhunter and now we have a new set of storyboard art that sees the Man of Steel (D.J. Cotrona) take on Princess Diana of Themyscira (Megan Gale).

Check them out below:

So why is Superman fighting Wonder Woman? Well, in the movie The Last Son of Krypton would have had his mind taken over by Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel), which would have turned him against his team mates. However, it would have all ended up badly for Lord when Batman (Armie Hammer) steps in to snap his neck. Ouch.

Justice League Mortal was originally set to go into production in 2007 before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug. »

Yesterday we brought you the first ever concept art from Justice League Mortal, the abandoned Warner/DC superhero ensemble from director George Miller, which featured Wonder Woman and Aquaman [check it out here]. Well, now the official Twitter page for the planned documentary Miller’s Justice League Mortal has dropped another piece of concept work, with a sculpt for Martian Manhunter, who would have been portrayed by Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max, Mad Max: Fury Road)…

The Justice League movie you'll never get to see: George Miller's lost superhero epic

29 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

George Miller is riding a wave of adulation right now thanks to the critical and commercial success of Mad Max: Fury Road, but eight years ago the filmmaker came this close to making a superhero movie that would've resulted in an entirely different DC Cinematic Universe.

Back in summer 2007 a script titled Justice League Mortal, by Michele and Kieran Mulroney, impressed Warner Bros bosses and the studio quickly enlisted Miller to make it a reality for a summer 2009 release. However, the movie - which was due to shoot in Australia - was plagued by behind-the-scenes issues that eventually led to the plug being pulled.

New Projects: Anne Hathaway to star opposite a giant lizard

14 May 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This week’s biggest upcoming project was one so weird that we needed a few days to process it. It has been called Godzilla meets Being John Malkovich and Adaptation (possibly even Lost in Translation for good measure), and if it seems like those two titles don’t add up in anyway whatsoever, you’re not far off.

The movie is Colossal, and THR reports is set to star Anne Hathaway. Hathaway plays a woman returning to her hometown from New York after losing her job. Upon returning home, she discovers that a giant lizard is attacking Tokyo, and she feels strangely connected to the incident via her mind.

Colossal isn’t even some tongue-in-cheek Spike Jonze project but coming from Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes), and aiming to be sold at this year’s Cannes Film Festival market. “Colossal is my most ambitious script so far, and probably also the most personal one. »
