Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats.

Box Office Predictions: 'Lucy' Looks to Take Down 'Hercules' in a Big Way

4 hours ago

Lucy should win the weekend, marking the first time a film helmed by director Luc Besson has captured the top spot since all the way back in 1997 (The Fifth Element). Has any other director gone 17 years between winsc The only thing that could derail it is that R rating. Only four weekends in 2014 have had an R winner -- Lone Survivor, 300: Rise of an Empire, Neighbors and 22 Jump Street. Four out of 29, not promising, but the tracking is there, and even though Scarlett Johansson has no actual track record of box office success as the lead, I'm willing to take the plunge and bring it in at $34.9 million. The other game in town is Hercules. I can't think of anyone who wants to see this, though clearly Mtc tracking doesn't exclusively poll my pals. I'm going slightly high at $24.5 million, but this one is a mystery. Given the non-success »

5 hours ago

This morning came the announcement of the 2014 Venice Film Festival lineup and we already knew Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman would serve as the opening night film and for the most part a lot of the more recognizable entries are those we already discussed as part of the Toronto Film Festival lineup. This includes Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes, David Gordon Green's Manglehorn starring Al Pacino, Abel Ferrera's Pasolini, Barry Levinson's The Humbling and Andrew Niccol's The Good Kill.

Gunn Still Finalizing 'Guardians of the Galaxy' End Credits Scene, Plus New Clip

23 hours ago

I'm seeing Guardians of the Galaxy tonight and it's nice to know ahead of time that I won't have to wade through the endless list of digital artists that worked on the film (after all, I have the film's credits on my hard drive) since the post credits scene for the film is not yet completed and won't be attached to my screening just as it hasn't been attached to any of the screenings so far. Director James Gunn spoke with Total Film about the sequence. Previously he's noted that it won't be setting up any future films, but will instead "add a new element to Marvel's Cinematic Universe": "Oh we have a post-credit sequence for you! Oh, do we ever! Yes, well we are connected, first of all we are connected...because of certain characters...but we have a post-credit sequence that's all our own! That in all »

Stare into the Sun with the 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Teaser Poster

23 hours ago

Perhaps the most interesting film that will be getting a preview at this year's Comic Con is George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road considering we pretty much know exactly what we're going to get from all the comic book-based movies teased at the convention. Then again, I guess we sort of know what we're going to get from Mad Max, but there's a big question mark on this one as to just how well it will all turn out after years of production ups and downs. Today, along with new pictures earlier, comes the first poster for the film featuring Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky, a role was made iconic by Mel Gibson in the original films. Max is a hardened ex-cop in a future beset by gas shortages and marauding gangs. This time around the story is said to the take place a short while after the story »

'Lucy' (2014) Movie Review

23 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT

If you're hung up on the fact Lucy perpetuates the myth humans only use 10% of their brain then I don't know why you're reading this review. However, if you thought Transcendence was a talky bore and wish there had been more action and less jibber-jabber then you might want to stick around since the two films essentially approach the idea of the singularity, but get there using dramatically different means. Directed by Luc Besson (The Professional, The Fifth Element), Lucy tells the story of the title character, played by Scarlett Johansson with all the wooden acuity of Keanu Reeves, as she is forced into serving as a drug mule, carrying a package of a new drug next to her intestines. Unfortunately for her, when she's kicked in the stomach a small amount of the drug leaks into her system, giving her abilities beyond that of a "normal" human being and »

Sony Delays 'Amazing Spider-Man 3', Moves Up 'Sinister Six' and 'Uncharted'

23 July 2014 10:20 AM, PDT

Originally set to hit theaters on June 10, 2016, Sony has now decided to delay The Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years to 2018, the year The Amazing Spider-Man 4 was previously expected to hit theaters. However, they aren't giving up on the idea of building a world around the web-slinger despite the lackluster returns from The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which had been expected to gross nearly $1 billion worldwide this summer, but has so far only amassed $706 million. Instead of a new Spider-Man film in 2016, the studio is moving forward with The Sinister Six with writer/director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods), releasing on November 11, 2016. The film features an all-star lineup of Spider-Man villains, all of which were teased in the Spider-Man 2's end credits including Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Rhino, Vulture, Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio. No word on which one of those villains may show up, but it seems »

New Full Trailer for Race Relations Satire 'Dear White People'

23 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT

I'm already convinced I need to see Justin Simien's Dear White People based on that first teaser trailer alone, but if you weren't already aboard Roadside has released a second, full trailer for the upcoming race relations satire centered on a group of African American students as they navigate campus life and racial politics at a predominantly white college. The unexpected election of activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) as head of a traditionally black residence hall sets up a college campus culture war that challenges conventional notions of what it means to be black. While Sam leverages her notoriety as host of the provocative and polarizing radio show "Dear White People" to try to prevent the college from diversifying Armstrong Parker House, outgoing head-of-house Troy Fairbanks (Brandon P. Bell), son of the university's dean (Dennis Haysbert), defies his father's lofty expectations by applying to join the staff of Pastiche, »

'Pirates 5' Set for 2017, Gunn Back for 'Guardians 2', Elba for 'King Arthur' & Diesel Talks 'xXx 3'

23 July 2014 8:46 AM, PDT

Disney has announced Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will hit theaters on July 7, 2017. No other details are known though Johnny Depp is expected to star and, for the moment, Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still attached to direct. After leaving the Ant-Man production, it looks like Edgar Wright has found his next film in Baby Driver, a crime-themed action thriller of which he will write and was first attached to back in 2008 when it was referred to as a wild spin on the action and crime genre which will be set in the Us. Nothing else is known at this time. Deadline Cameron Crowe's untitled new film starring Emma Stone and Bradley Cooper was set to hit theaters on Christmas Day, but has now been bumped to May 29, 2015. I guess Sony thinks they may have a summer hit on their hands and not much of an awards player. Nothing wrong with that. »

New Pictures from 'Goosebumps' and 'Pixels'

23 July 2014 8:23 AM, PDT

The above picture from Sony's Pixels was released earlier, but in a low resolution form, now the studio has made the pic available in high resolution as it features Violet Van Patten (Michelle Monaghan), Sam Brenner (Adam Sandler), Ludlow Lamonsoff (Josh Gad) and Eddie Plant (Peter Dinklage and his mullet) in the upcoming film based on the animated short directed by Patrick Jean (watch it here).
