Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool’s Open Sexuality: A Boyfriend ‘Would Be Great’

9 February 2016 12:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the comic-books, Deadpool is an equal opportunity smart aleck — and flirt. That’s a sensibility that the producers of the new 20th Century Fox superhero movie, starring Ryan Reynolds, tried to recreate for the upcoming tentpole.

But while the big-screen version of Deadpool earns a R-rating with graphic violence, profanity and sexual content, you won’t see this masked-hero sharing a bed with another man.

That could change, particularly if the film — which is expected to dominate the box office this weekend — spawns sequels. On the red carpet at a New York screening for “Deadpool” on Monday, alongside hundreds of fans decked in red tights and masks, Reynolds said he’s aware that Deadpool identifies as pansexual.

“I love that about Deadpool,” said Reynolds. “I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more,” he said, alluding to his character »

99 Homes | Blu-ray Review

9 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Director Ramin Bahrani scores his most lauded venture yet with the critically acclaimed 99 Homes. Premiering in competition at Venice in 2014, Broad Green Pictures released theatrically a year later, though its limited booking didn’t reclaim its budget of eight million. Michael Shannon landed a Golden Globe and Indie Spirit Award nod for Best Supporting Actor, but a hushed awards campaign didn’t break into Oscar territory. A social issue drama masquerading as a potential genre film, this film should obtain a wider audience for the highly regarded Bahrani.

Though his 2012 farming melodrama At Any Price found the filmmaker gaining wider visibility with notable cast members, its Death of a Salesman treatment of modern capitalistic woes in America’s heartland left much to be desired, even as it showcased a surprising couple of performances, notably from Zac Efron. The filmmaker returns to look at a similar situation in a different market, »

Andrew Garfield Will Star in Angels in America in London, Which Is Not in America

3 February 2016 12:27 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Andrew Garfield, Spider-Man no more, will star in the National Theater's production of Angels in America in May 2017. Part one of Tony Kushner's epic two-part, six-hour play had its British premiere in 1992 (with the second part premiering the year after), making this something of a 25th-anniversary staging. Garfield will play Prior Walter, a gay man diagnosed with AIDS at the height of the epidemic in New York. The role was originated by Stephen Spinella in the play's 1992 debut in L.A. and its later Broadway staging. Justin Kirk played Prior in Mike Nichols's 2003 HBO adaptation. In London, Angels in America will be directed by Marianne Elliott. The rest of the cast has not yet been announced. »

10 Things You Need To Know About The McU’s Spider-Man

27 January 2016 12:21 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

Spidey is finally coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’ll look an awful lot like young British actor Tom Holland, and he’ll make his first appearance in this year’s Captain America: Civil War movie before spinning out into his own solo adventure expected in cinemas in July 2017.

Jon Watts of kids-in-trouble drama Cop Car and grizzly family horror Clown will direct the solo film, building on the groundwork laid by Joe and Anthony Russo in the huge Civil War crossover film. And Sony will be hoping that these two movies can set right Spidey’s cinematic stock after the disappointing-according-the-studio takings of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (That’s one of the few circumstances when $700 million worldwide can be made to sound like a bad thing.)

We don’t yet know which villains the new web-slinger face, or who is love interest will be. But, thanks to a little digging, »

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 4: #25-1

26 January 2016 11:17 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our countdown of the top 100 films of the 21st Century (so far) concludes here with the top 25.

Click here for Part 2! (#75-51)

Click here for Part 3! (#50-26)

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »

Legend; Infinitely Polar Bear; Tangerines; Cartel Land – review

23 January 2016 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tom Hardy’s turn as the Krays is doubly impressive, while Andrew Garfield strikes a deal with the devil

It’s a familiar rule of thumb in the Oscar-watching game that the best actors aren’t always recognised for their best work. Tom Hardy’s as good an example as any this year: he cracked his first nod for his beardily villainous performance in The Revenant, though it’s some of his wobblier work. I’d rather have seen him honoured for Legend (Studiocanal, 18): his twin turn as Reggie and Ronnie Kray is no less brash a feat of scenery-chewing, but it’s a considerably more special one. Drawing on both his reckless movie-star magnetism and his character-actor peculiarities, often in the same frame, it’s a dazzling thespian stunt and a full-bodied (well, double-bodied) characterisation – and the lifeblood of Brian Helgeland’s less inventive chunk of East End gangland lore. »

10 Overlooked Positives Of The Amazing Spider-Man Films

23 January 2016 10:48 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony

You’ve got to feel a bit sorry for Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. The previous Spider-Man franchise had three movies in which to prove itself, but these guys were quietly shuffled off the Sony back-lot after just two.

We’ll never get to see The Amazing Spider-Man franchise reach it’s full potential. It’s been kicked conclusively under the carpet in favour of a new collaboration between Sony and Marvel Studios, with Jon Watts and Tom Holland stepping in to take the reins while Webb and co. have had to make themselves scarce.

The sad bit is: their films really weren’t that bad. The big problems (rehashing Raimi and spending too long teasing the Sinister Six) surely came from Sony, while the cast and crew made the most of the material they were given. While they’re not quite ‘Amazing’ as the series’ hubristic moniker would have us believe, »

After 'Silence,' What's Martin Scorsese Doing This Year?

8 January 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Martin Scorsese may be 73 years of age, yet there is no sign that he's slowing down. He is currently in post-production on Silence, a historical drama starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson. It's a dream project for Scorsese, one that he's wanted to make for years, following two missionaries as they deal with persecution, martyrdom and grace in 17th century Japan. Neeson said that Scorsese prepares intensely for every film he makes: "He supplies 200 percent; all he wants from you is 100 percent." Silence is aiming for release later this year; it's already been rumored for a premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Before he got busy with that project, however, Scorsese helped to develop Vinyl, a new dramatic series that will debut on...

8 January 2016 4:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When the trailer for Captain America: Civil War debuted in November, some were disappointed that it didn't include our first official look at the new Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Back in February 2015, Marvel finally struck a deal with Sony Pictures to include the web-slinger in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with his debut coming in Captain America: Civil War. While we wait for our first official glimpse of the new Spidey, Captain America: Civil War directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo spoke with ComicBook.com, with Joe Russo revealing how this version of the iconic wall-crawler is so different from previous incarnations.

"We had thought back to the things that excited us about him as a character when we were younger, and one of the most important components of that was that he's a high schooler burdened with incredible powers and responsibility. That really differentiates him from every other character in the »

Paramount is developing a biopic based on the life of classical pianist Byron Janis with Martin Scorsese producing, Variety has learned exclusively.

The studio has bought a pitch from Peter Glanz, who is writing the script. The project is based on Janis’ book “Chopin and Beyond: My Extraordinary Life in Music and the Paranormal.”
