Hans Zimmer Tribute at the Annenberg Raises $1.2 Million for Israel Philharmonic

17 July 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two giants in their respective fields, Hans Zimmer and Zubin Mehta, held court Wednesday night at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, where Zimmer was bestowed a lifetime achievement award by the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, for which Mehta is co-chairman and holds the post of music director for life.

But it was Zimmer — perhaps the closest thing to a mogul in the scoring realm — who was clearly humbled by the honor. “I was a little nervous about a world-class orchestra playing Schubert (Symphonia N° 8, Unfinished) and Zimmer, and Schubert is a real composer,” Zimmer told Variety. “And just seeing how they really knew my stuff and they loved it. There was this bond.”

The lavish, black-tie affair — consisting of a concert by the orchestra of mostly Zimmer movie compositions, and a Wolfgang Puck-catered supper in the Center’s courtyard afterward — raised approximately $1.2 million for the Israel Philharmonic, »

Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

Film Review: ‘Cut Bank’

18 June 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Watching an estimable quintet of character actors do their thing is the chief pleasure of “Cut Bank,” a largely routine thriller dressed up as a quirky small-town morality play. The feature helming debut of Matt Shakman, a former child actor turned prolific director of episodic television, does well by all but the youngest members of its core cast — a creative stumble that unfortunately leaves a gaping hole where the film’s heart should be. Quality supporting performances, including another excellent turn from Bruce Dern, aren’t enough to guarantee theatrical play after a Los Angeles Film Festival premiere, but should help boost the pic’s profile wherever it lands.

Disaffected young dude Dwayne (Liam Hemsworth) longs to leave the sleepy town of Cut Bank, Mont., notable only as the “coldest spot in the nation,” for sunnier surroundings. Employed as a mechanic by the no-nonsense father (Billy Bob Thornton) of his pretty pageant-queen-wannabe g. »

30 Biggest Movies Of 2015 We Can’t Wait For

16 June 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Without any exaggeration whatsoever, it’s been long looking like 2015 just might be the greatest year for Hollywood blockbusters ever.

While the annual tentpole slate usually fills itself out nicely, 2015 is a year so uncommonly jam-packed with anticipated movies that one can’t help but notice the upswing. We’ve got exciting original ideas, promising reboots of classic franchises, long-anticipated sequels, and beloved series being resurrected after years in the wilderness.

In fact, so crammed with huge movies is 2015 that it was a struggle to whittle the list down to a mere 30, and in fact, the list could easily go up to 40 or 50. If even half of these movies deliver on their promises, then 2015 truly could be the most successful year for blockbusters ever, but even ignoring that, the hype-o-meter is going to be off the charts all the way to the year’s end, and cinema owners will »

Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies

10 June 2014 6:12 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

I have a curious habit, maybe you have it too, if you are a real movie geek, film fan, cinema addict, what have you.

A certain number of movies that I have seen and loved with all my heart were losers at the box office or were mercilessly slammed by critics, usually both. This doesn’t happen all the time, mind you. I know a bad movie when I see one. But several times I have seen a movie on opening day and loved it so much I was sure it would be a big hit and be loved by critics and film goers, nope, not all the time.

Here then is my own personal and highly eccentric top ten list, with some honorable mentions, of movies that lost out, yet I love them still, many of them desperately, hysterically, madly do I love these films, well anyway… let me tell you about it. »

Armie Hammer's Wife Elizabeth Chambers Is Pregnant With Couple's First Child

2 June 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Armie Hammer's going to be a dad, y'all! The Lone Ranger star's wife, TV host Elizabeth Chambers, is pregnant with the couple's first child, Hammer's rep confirms to E! News. (People was first to report the baby news.) The dad-to-be, 27, and his wife, 31, celebrated their 4-year wedding anniversary on May 22. Funnily enough, though, the pair's first date wasn't necessarily the kind of outing you'd think would lead to marriage. As he explained to Playboy last year, he and Chambers "were supposed to go skeet shooting....but it started to rain so we ended up going to a bunch of art galleries and then a porn store instead."

Armie Hammer Will Struggle To Survive The Desert In 'Mine'

6 May 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The classic "Human versus The Elements" formula has been finding new life at the multiplex in recent years. Liam Neeson turned it into a surprise hit a few years back with The Grey, and Sandra Bullock gave us an even more successful version of that story with last year's Gravity. In a world where it's easy to start stacking A-list cast members in a story of survival, it's sometimes the best idea to focus on just one very talented actor that could use a break. Which is exactly the situation Armie Hammer has found himself in after last year's disastrous The Lone Ranger, and as luck (or a really good agent) would have it, he's landed himself just that type of role in a project named Mine. Co-directed and co-written by relative unknowns Fabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro, Variety describes Mine as a film about: "A soldier who, after a »

A Guide to the Stars' Table Mates at the White House Correspondents Dinner

2 May 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Politics may make strange bedfellows, but Washington D.C.'s most star-studded night always makes for some interesting table talk. At the 100th annual White House Correspondents Association dinner, emceed this year by Joel McHale, expect to see the usual oddball mix of celebrities seated with politicians seated with media folk, who host tables in a massive ballroom under the Washington Hilton. To the uninitiated, watching the A-listers make their way to their seats seems a bit like Harry Potter's Hogwarts "sorting hat" is at work sending each boldface name to the right place.
