The Top Ten 'Mad Men' Episodes (So Far)

9 April 2014 10:20 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Mad Men" is a series with relatively little interest in picking up exactly where we left off last week. Indeed, AMC's flagship drama, which begins its seventh and final season on Sunday (our coverage here), delights in the episode as an art form unto itself. Here, with the requisite caveat that rankings are silly and subjective as well as good fun, are the ten best: 10. "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," Season 1 (Episode 1) "Advertising is based on one thing," New York ad man Don Draper (Jon Hamm) tells the executives of American Tobacco midway through the series' pilot: "Happiness." The first hour of "Mad Men" is as deceptively simple as its protagonist's pitch, following Don as he romances Midge (Rosemarie DeWitt), a bohemian Village artist, spars with department store heiress Rachel Mencken (Maggie Siff), and rejects a clumsy pass from his new secretary, Peggy (Elisabeth Moss). "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" sits squarely on Don's shoulders, »

Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. Talk Hard-r Comedy Let’S Be Cops, Nudity, Improvising, Joe Swanberg’s Digging For Fire, and More

2 April 2014 8:14 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I'll admit it: director Luke Greenfield’s Let's Be Cops just wasn't on my radar.  While I'm a fan of Greenfield's The Girl Next Door, I wasn't sure what to expect with his new comedy starring  Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson.  However, after watching the great-looking red band trailer at CinemaCon, I think we might have an early contender for box office surprise of the summer.  If you haven't heard of the film, Let's Be Cops stars Johnson and Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  The film also stars Nina DobrevRob Riggle, James D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key and it opens August 13th. Shortly after presenting the trailer at CinemaCon, I landed an exclusive video interview with Johnson and Wayans Jr. »

Renner is best known to the general public for his action hero roles, with major parts in the Bourne franchise, The Avengers and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, but his acting gigs over the past few months have signified a clear desire to return to more weighty projects. His last two films, »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #100. Michael Cuesta’s Kill the Messenger

20 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Kill the Messenger

Director: Michael Cuesta

Writer: Peter Landesman

Producers: Pamela Abdy, Naomi Despres, Jeremy Renner, Scott Stuber

U.S. Distributor: Focus Features

Cast: Jeremy Renner, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Michael Sheen, Michael K. Williams, Robert Patrick, Ray Liotta, Barry Pepper, Andy Garcia, Paz Vega, Rosemarie DeWitt, Tim Blake Nelson, Oliver Platt, Jena Sims, Lucas Hedges, Richard Schiff, Yul Vazquez

We know him as the director behind indie nuggets such as L.I.E., hotel room splendor of 12 and Holding and more recently, Roadie, so after a mostly low-budget indie filmography Michael Cuesta cross over into bigger budget big leagues is due to a successful stint on Homeland. Kill the Messenger sounds like compelling material, and sports and impressive ensemble cast, and we’re banking that visually it’ll pay dividends with cinematographer Sean Bobbitt who is currently at the top of his game.

Remakes Keep Flopping, But Here Are 4 Reasons Why Hollywood Still Makes Them

14 February 2014 3:29 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Three remakes of 1980s movies are arriving in theaters today, but neither Robocop, About Last Night, or Endless Love is projected to be a major box office success, and I doubt you're surprised: Lately, it seems like movie remakes have been arriving — and underperforming — with greater frequency, from Carrie to Total Recall to Footloose. Why, then, are studios still so determined to make them? Here are four of the big reasons why the remake trend shows no sign of waning (alas).1. Because remakes appease shareholders.Imagine you're a studio executive at Fox, and you've got to go in and pitch next year's slate to a bunch of shareholders and money men. Do you tell them that for February 2015, you've got an original haunted house movie starring Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt? Or do you tell them you've cast those two stars in a remake of Poltergeist? It's the »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #159. Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children

7 February 2014 6:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Men, Women & Children

Director: Jason Reitman

Writer(s): Jason Reitman, Erin Cressida Wilson

Producers: Right of Way Films’ Helen Estabrook & Reitman

U.S. Distributor: Paramount Pictures

Cast: Adam Sandler, Rosemarie Dewitt, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, J.K. Simmons, Ansel Elgort, and Emma Thompson narrates.

His peachy Labor Day — a human drama about becoming a surrogate, wants and needs  fulfilled become late 2013′s/early 2014′s punching bag for critics, but if you spread out his filmography there are glimpses of sharply written dialogue, and complex characters with his book to film adaptations. Men, Women & Children could definitely offer a spot on, soapy bunch of characters and an Adam Sandler closer to a Punch-Drunk Love type role will certainly draw plenty of onlookers.

Gist: Based on the novel of the same name by Chad Kultgen, the film “follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents »

'Planet Of The Apes 3' Already Dated For Summer 2016; The 'Poltergeist' Remake Will Scare You Feb 2015

14 January 2014 5:33 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Release date alert: Keener studios are still planning ahead and planting early flags in the ground with 2015 and even 2016 dates, and in this case it’s 20th Century Fox. Peering into the still-feels-far-away future, Fox has already dated the as-of-now-untitled third 'Planet of the Apes' movie, which director Matt Reeves recently signed on to make (which is a bit sad because his talents feel like they could be better utilized elsewhere; how about one tentpole and then something else rather than two in a row, one a sequel no less?). ‘Apes Untitled 3’ is scheduled to rise on July 29, 2016. The studio has also carved out a February 13, 2015 release date for its “Poltergeist” remake. It’ll be directed by Gil Kenan (“Monster House,” “City Of Ember”) and it stars Rosemarie DeWitt, Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris, Nicholas Braun and Kyle Catlett.

Release Date Announced for Poltergeist Remake

14 January 2014 5:09 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The remake of Poltergeist began filming last September and a release date has just been announced, but we’re in for a good wait until it hits theaters. It has been officially announced that the new Poltergeist movie will be released on February 13th, 2015.

A Friday, the 13th release worked quite well for Insidious: Chapter 2, so Fox is likely hoping for a similar bump from the superstitious date. On the same weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey and Spongebob SquarePants 2 are set to be released, but it’s far enough away that we expect some of these dates to change.

Gil Kenan (Monster House) is directing from a screenplay by David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz: The Great and Powerful). The film is being produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert via Ghost House Pictures, along with Roy Lee. Here’s the official synopsis provided by MGM and Fox:
