Nina Forever Review | SXSW 2015

35 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Think you’ve had enough big screen love triangles? I can guarantee you’ve never seen one quite like the relationship in Chris and Ben Blaine’s feature debut, Nina Forever. The movie stars Abigail Hardingham as Holly. She’s training to become a paramedic, but also works at a supermarket and that’s where she falls for Rob (Cian Barry). He’s completely broken after the death of his girlfriend Nina (Fiona O'Shaughnessy), but Holly is convinced she can fix him. They hit it off and strike up a relationship, but their budding romance almost comes to a screeching halt the first night they sleep together. Right in the middle of their hook up session, Nina pops up, and I mean literally pops up. She rises out of the bed right next to them, a bloody, broken mess, just like after her accident. It’s startling, but Holly doesn’t run. »

Top 5: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Trailer, Super Troopers 2, Spectre Teaser, Get Hard, The X-Files Returning

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now available on Blu-ray/DVD is Chris Rock's comedy Top Five. Paramount released the pic to theaters in mid-December where it grossed just north of $25 million at the domestic box office against an estimated production budget of $12 million. I missed its theatrical run but caught the film on Xbox Video last night and can safely say it's my favorite piece of work from Rock who writes, directs, and stars. Smart, funny, brash, and introspective, Top Five sees the comedian star alongside Rosario Dawson as a fictional version of himself, actor/comedian Andre Allen. Dawson plays a New York Times journalist who is interviewing Allen on the heels of the release of his new movie (a supposed serious film about the Haitian slave rebellion that Allen hopes will help him shed his comedic typecast) and this setup provides the framework for the rest of the story. Rock's screenplay is chock »

Watch: First Trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Zombie Movie ‘Maggie’

2 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Abigail Breslin is all grown up and wants to protect Arnold Schwarzenegger in the first trailer for their indie zombie movie “Maggie.”

The catch? She wants to protect him from herself.

Breslin plays the titular character who becomes infected with a virus and transforms in a full-fledged zombie in a matter of weeks. This leaves her father with only three options: cure her, save her or kill her. None of those choices is going to be easy.

Maggie” premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival next month and hits theaters on May 8.

Watch The Massive Power Of Scarlet Witch In New Avengers 2 Footage

3 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }A:link { } The blockbuster of the summer Avengers: Age of Ultron is almost upon us and with that said it's time to bring a little hype to Scarlet Witch. We've seen some small clips and a few stills of the goth-looking hex-artist/superhero (we never said mutant!) but now it's time to meet her. Check out the massive power displayed by Ms. Wanda Maximoff in the below "Super Siblings" featurette. It's pretty clear from the above clip that Scarlet Witch, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and her twin brother Quicksilver/Pietro Maximoff (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) will both be forces to be reckoned with in Joss Whedon's upcoming Avengers 2. Visually, she is somewhat gothic looking, and is described on the inside as being connected and grounded with the universe. Let's be honest, though, it's her powers, which include telekinesis among other things, that will certainly make this character an influential »

Rob Long on Why Hollywood Leans Democratic (Listen)

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Producer-writer Rob Long, one of the co-founders of the conservative site Ricochet, says that there are a number of reasons why the entertainment industry has for some time leaned left politically — maybe even more so today than a decade ago.

There have been a lot of theories as to why the industry — which, during the studio era, was actually quite conservative — is now lopsided in favor of Democrats.

“I think that in Hollywood, part of the problem is that everyone gets paid a lot of money — the ones who are setting the culture, the tone of the culture,” Long tells Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM. “They don’t always see what they get. I always say the best piece of direct mail persuasion for the Republican Party is the pay stub. Everybody has that experience when you look at your check. You look at your pay stub, and you see »

Film Review: ‘High Society’

3 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Contemplative understatement marks Julie Lopes-Curval’s fourth feature, “High Society,” a nuanced character study of a demure working-class girl thrust into an upscale milieu of intellectual sophistication when she is accepted into a Parisian school of design. Her ensuing affair with a rebellious upper-class artist, potentially the stuff of melodrama and/or class stereotyping, subtly subverts familiar tropes by interiorizing them as part of an ongoing sentimental education. The result is a triumph of minor-key storytelling, one whose virtues are likely to go largely unnoticed in this era of high-octane emoting, though a less tiredly translated English title might help.

A chance encounter between 20-year-old Alice (Ana Girardot), working in a pastry shop, and rich fashion-house owner Agnes (Aurelia Petit), who praises Alice’s self-made, sea-colored sweater, results in her help in writing a letter to a well-known design school; Agnes’ son Antoine (Bastien Bouillon) recommends a place to live in Paris. »

Hugh Jackman Says 'Wolverine 3' Will Be His Last Turn As The Mutant Character

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There’s always a weird disconnect of age in Hollywood. You hear actors often suggesting, “Oh, I’m getting too old for this part,” meanwhile actors routinely play parts where their character is much, much younger. Andrew Garfield was 28 when he started playing the teenage Peter Parker in “The Amazing Spider-Man,” and yet when the “Spectacular Spider-Man” reboot was announced, much of the news was about how the character was going younger and going back to high school (he had barely left; Parker had graduated by ‘”Amazing Spider-Man 2”). Robert Downey Jr. has said much the same; that he’s getting too old to play Tony Stark now that he’s going on 50 (next year). But 50 is the new 40 and Rdj has signed back for multiple more Marvel films including a major role in “Captain America: Civil War,” so we’ll be seeing him as “Iron Man” until at least »

How Many More Wolverine Movies? Hugh Jackman Just Told Us

3 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Last we heard from Hugh Jackman, he made it fairly clear he did not want to give up his signature role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise. But, looks like Jackman may be letting go of his adamantium claws a little sooner than we had previously thought.  Wolverine ...One Last Time. Hj A photo posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on Mar 28, 2015 at 10:40am Pdt Jackman has spoken, "One Last Time". And I think it is pretty safe to assume that this is in regards to his final solo-Wolverine film since word is he will only be making a quick cameo in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Though it.s hard to say goodbye to one of the original X-Men of the film franchise, Jackman has certainly paid his dues. This year marks the 15th anniversary of his role as the smart-mouth Logan with his first turn back in 2000 in Bryan Singer »

The Founder starring Michael Keaton gets release date

4 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Founder starring Michael Keaton now has a release date in the midst of award season.

The movie stars Keaton as Ray Kroc - the man who turned McDonald's into the world's biggest fast-food chain.

The Hollywood Reporter says it will be released in the Us on November 25, 2016.

The actor lost out on the Best Actor award at 2014's Academy Awards to Eddie Redmayne after he was nominated for Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman.

A Vine has even emerged which appears to show Keaton putting a piece of paper - presumably an acceptance speech - back into his pocket as Cate Blanchett announced Redmayne as the winner.

The Founder is directed by John Lee Hancock and tells the story of Kroc who saw potential in the speedy burger operation run by Mac and Dick McDonald in southern California, before buying the company and franchising it out across the globe.

Although the loose theme of this year’s  TCM Classic Film Festival revolves around the word “History” in every possible meaning of the word, organizers could easily have wrapped it around the word “anniversary”  since so much of it seems to be tied to celebrating landmark years in the life of the movies, actors and filmmakers being honored this year.  In fact the fest , which runs all weekend, opened Thursday night with a stunning restoration of the beloved 1965 musical, T… »

Film Review: ‘Racing Extinction’

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Whereas marine activist Louie Psihoyos’ “The Cove” took an environmental crisis — specifically, the slaughter and sale of dolphins off the coast of Japan — and turned it into a white-knuckle suspense thriller, his even higher-stakes follow-up, “Racing Extinction,” feels disappointingly conventional by comparison, like something junior-high kids might watch on a slow day in science class. Though extremely well produced and loaded with even more covert save-the-world stunts, the film doesn’t engage in quite the same way, perhaps because Psihoyos’ squad has been so good about getting the word out along the way. Still, he’s right to recognize that a documentary will have a wider reach than his National Geographic and other old-media contributions do, bound to be amplified when Discovery Channel puts its muscle behind a worldwide broadcast premiere later this year.

This means that the actor will likely not play Wolverine in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” with the upcoming sequel to “The Wolverine” spinoff serving as his swan song. The movie is set for release on March 3, 2017.

Jackman first played the mutant in 2000’s “X-Men,” taking over the role from Dougray Scott after the actor sustained an injury. He has now assumed the role an unrivaled seven times, including two turns in his own offshoots — “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “The Wolverine.”

What sets “Avengers: Age of Ultron” apart from the first film? The introduction of “massively important new characters,” for one thing.

Aside from showing brief footage from the “Avengers” sequel, the clip, released by Marvel U.K., also explores the twins’ superpowers. Scarlet Witch has telekinetic abilities that ultimately drive that Avengers crazy, while Quicksilver moves as fast as a bullet.

Hugh Jackman to Play Wolverine One Last Time

Our time with Hugh Jackman as The Wolverine looks like it’s coming to an end.

Wolverine ...One Last Time.

He would go on to play the character seven more times, and became the first X-Men actor to get his own spinoff movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That effort was a misfire, but he subsequently recovered with the swell The Wolverine and became the link between the old cast and the X-Men: First Class cast in X-Men: Days of Future Past.
