MPAA Ratings for 'Heart of the Sea', 'Man From U.N.C.L.E.', 'Mojave' and Nic Cage's 'Left Behind'

1 hour ago

Today's Mppa ratings bulletin has at least one interesting title, that being William Monahan's Mojave, which stars Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund and is still not only without a release date, but without a distributor. At least now it has an R-rating, but not that's not likely going to help sell it. Next is Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. starring Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer, which won't be hitting theaters until August 14, 2015, but at least we can now confirm it has PG-13 rating. Ron Howard's In The Heart of the Sea, starring Chris Hemsworth, will be hitting theaters March 2015 and it too has a PG-13 rating, just as does the upcoming Left Behind feature starring Nicolas Cage, arriving in theaters this October 3. The complete bulletin is listed directly below, including a rating for Cymbeline, which stars Ethan Hawke and Milla Jovovich and recently played the Venice »

Official Domestic Trailer for Xavier Dolan's 'Mommy'

1 hour ago

I just can't stop writing about Xavier Dolan's Mommy as I wrote only a couple hours ago about it being Canada's official submission for Best Foreign Language film at the 2015 Oscars and now Roadside Attractions has released the first official domestic trailer for the film, which the studio says they'll be releasing some time in January 2015. Mommy tells the story of a feisty widowed single mom (Anne Dorval) who finds herself burdened with the full-time custody of her unpredictable 15-year-old Adhd son (Antoine-Olivier Pilon). As they struggle to make ends meet, Kyla (Suzanne Clement), the peculiar new neighbor across the street, offers her help. Together, they find a new sense of balance, and hope is regained. I caught this one in Toronto after its Jury Prize appearance at Cannes and loved it, here's a snippet from my review: Few things are more satisfying than when you're anticipating an artist's »

New 'Ouija' Trailer Reminds Us There's an 'Ouija' Movie Coming Out

3 hours ago

Believe it or not, this is the third trailer for the board game-turned-movie Ouija I've posted since the first one dropped in July and yet I still get the impression none of us ever remembers it's a movie that's actually coming out this year... October 24 in fact... that's only a month away. You excitedc Directed by Stiles White, the film centers on a group of friends who must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board. The film stars Matthew Settle, Erin Moriarty, Olivia Cooke, Daren Kagasoff, Bianca A. Santos, Vivis Colombetti, Ana Coto and Olivia Cooke and just skimming through this trailer I'm not getting much of a scary vibe as much as I'm getting a "horror cliches" vibe... hell, even the doll has its mouth sewn shut. What's that all aboutc Give it a watch below and let me know what you think. »

Oscars Best Foreign Language List Climbs to 56: Dolan's 'Mommy' is In, 'Blue is the Warmest Color' is Out

4 hours ago

Keeping track of the Foreign Language submissions for the Oscars each year is something I constantly forget to keep on top of, but I have just done a full update as we are now up to 56 total submissions, only 20 shy of last year's record-breaking 76 submissions with only eight days to go before the October 1 submission deadline. Notable new entries on the list include Belguim's submission of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's festival favorite Two Days, One Night as well as Canada submitting Xavier Dolan's Mommy, which knocked the socks of Cannes audiences and did the same to me in Toronto this year (read my review here). It should also be noted France has submitted Bertrand Bonello's Saint Laurent instead of last year's buzzy title Blue is the Warmest Color, which missed the release date cut off date last year, making it eligible for this year's Oscars, but the »

Updated: Full 'Gone Girl' Track List Revealed, Listen to Four Tracks!

4 hours ago

Gone Girl fever is taking over the movie blogosphere as we're all clamoring for another movie to get firmly behind and love and with early reviews somewhat mixed, yet largely positive, it's not easy to tell if David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel will be the film we're looking for, but that doesn't quell my anticipation and I assume if you're reading this post you're equally excited. Today the full track listing for the film's score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross has been revealed (via NINwiki). The duo provided the score for Fincher's The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and now they're back with a score Reznor recently described to The Wall Street Journal saying, "David Fincher said, 'Think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors'... The way it artificially tries to make you feel like everything's Ok. »

Vin Diesel Shares Two New 'Fast & Furious 7' Pictures

5 hours ago

Vin Diesel has become his own marketing team, offering updates to his upcoming movies and keeping in constant touch with his 85.3 million fans on Facebook and he continues today, sharing new pictures from Fast & Furious 7. The pic above features Diesel and Paul Walker while the one below features a solo Diesel taping up his hands for a boxing match(c) or something, which also came with the following note: "Universal came to visit, to show the trailer for FF7... Speechless... yeah, it was that Incredible! I must also say, that it was emotional and bittersweet... we all went above and beyond to make Pablo proud, but man, I wish he could see what we have created and just how far we have come." No word yet on when the actual Fast and Furious 7 trailer will actually drop, but with Dracula Untold opening on October 10 it might be a good good »

Ranking the Film's of David Fincher: From 'Alien 3' to 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'

5 hours ago

I hadn't seen David Fincher's Gone Girl before creating this list. I felt I'd let his latest film simmer for a bit before attempting to figure out where exactly it fit within a filmography that now spans 22 years. I must also confess to being a David Fincher fanboy. It was Fincher's films before any other that got me to start looking at the way movies were made and who was making them rather than simply consuming one after the other. His leaning toward dark and brooding material is as much about his taste in the movies he makes and his approach to movie making. Even with films such as The Social Network, looking at the fellas behind the creation of Facebook, Fincher delivers a dark, moody and atmospheric piece of cinema. But let's not spoil the conversation of each film before getting to the list. What follows is »

Watch: 'The Fault in Our Stars' Honest Trailer

7 hours ago

The romance that did for cancer what Twilight did for vampires... This is how Screen Junkies kicks off their rather odd honest trailer installment for The Fault in Our Stars, what I consider to be the biggest surprise hit of 2014 and not because it did well at the box office. After all, saying it did well is a massive understatement. This movie crushed the worldwide box office to the tune of more than $301 million so far on a $12 million budget. Directed by Josh Boone and starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, this was the perfect storm of weeping, tragic romance combined with solid acting and directing. It was, in fact, a good film, and it just might be a film that proves challenging for the Screen Junkies crew to dismantle... that is, other than the Anne Frank house moment, which is easily the oddest scene in the entire film. As I said, »

David Hasselhoff Gets Profane in Nsfw Clip from Joe Carnahan's 'Stretch'

7 hours ago

Living in Seattle means I wasn't able to attend a screening of Joe Carnahan's Stretch which took place last Thursday, September 18. I'm not sure who all attended the screening, and I'm not sure if Universal was allowing anyone to talk about it or review it, but with an On Demand release coming in October, I'll hopefully be seeing it soon enough with the rest of you. All that said, four new clips from the film have just surfaced, one of the most interesting features David Hasselhoff giving Patrick Wilson a piece of his mind in a not safe for work, profanity riddled rant. In the film Wilson plays a down-on-his-luck chauffeur and in this clip he's an hour late to pick up The Hoff. Oops. Along with Wilson and Hasselhoff, the film co-stars Ed Helms, Chris Pine, Brooklyn Decker, James Badge Dale, Ray Liotta and Eddie J. Fernandez. Along »

'Neighbors', 'The Rover' and Polanski's 'Macbeth' On DVD & Blu-ray This Week

9 hours ago

Neighbors As I wrote in my review of Neighbors, it's a film that "has the odd distinction of being a film that's both very funny and yet, at 96 minutes long, overstays its welcome". I laughed quite a bit watching this movie, but at the same time just couldn't help but feel like it was way too long and for a film that's just over an hour and a half, that's not a good sign.

The Rover The Rover is a film I consider one of the best of the year and said as much in my review. It's a film you need to just let unfold, don't get impatient and you will be rewarded in the end.

Macbeth (Criterion Collection) I have a copy of Criterion's new edition of Roman Polanski's Macbeth, but my schedule has been brutal lately and I haven't yet had a chance to watch his adaptation of the Shakespeare play. »

Rumor Says Quentin Tarantino Wants Viggo Mortensen for 'The Hateful Eight'

10 hours ago

Until it's confirmed the title will be written as The H8tful Eight, I'll continue referring to Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film as The Hateful Eight. I hope you're all cool with that and I also hope that is the final title sort of how I hate referring to David Fincher's 1995 feature as Se7en, even though that seems to be the rule rather than the exception nowadays. Moving on... Today's Hateful-related news comes from The New York Daily News where they have a report that comes from a source at the Greenwich Hotel that saw Tarantino chatting up Viggo Mortensen, discussing "a 'ruthless gang leader' role", presumably for The Hateful Eight. I almost feel ashamed posting such a rumor considering we're talking about a report that comes from an "eagle-eyed hotel guest", but this doesn't sound in the least bit far-fetched and, in fact, a great little rumor that »

Watch: Ghibli's 'The Tale of the Princess Kaguya' Official U.S. Trailer

11 hours ago

I'm not really the biggest fan of dubbed films, even animated films dubbed into English never feel right. So, to watch Studio Ghibli's The Tale of the Princess Kaguya in English seems as if something will be lost in the translation, not necessarily the meaning and certainly not the story, but the mood and tone can get disrupted. Yes, in the case of Kaguya a cast that includes the voices of Chloe Grace Moretz, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Lucy Liu, Beau Bridges, Daniel Dae Kim, James Marsden, Oliver Platt, John Cho, George Segal, Dean Cain and Darren Criss has been assembled so it isn't as if director Isao Takahata's (Grave of the Fireflies) film is getting a second-rate treatment, but it nevertheless seems "wrong" to me. That said, here is the official domestic trailer for the upcoming release of the film that just won the Fantastic Fest Audience Award. »

Updated: First 5 Pictures of Liam Neeson in 'Taken 3', Plus Plot Details

18 hours ago

There was some reason to celebrate considering A Walk Among the Tombstones my review wasn't just Liam Neeson in another Taken-esque performance a la Non-Stop and Unknown. Then again, the movie itself was a little sloppy so the celebration was a little short-lived. Next up for Neeson, however, is yet another Taken feature, this one the aptly titled Taken 3 (it's the third one don'tcha knowc) and USA Today and Empire have delivered the five first look pictures, though this one is a little different than previous installments. Taken 3 finds Neeson as Bryan Mills and this time he is the prey after being framed for the murder of someone close to him. "I have to go on the run," Neeson told USA Today, "I'll put it that way, from the not-so-lawful types and the lawful authorities. Bryan Mills served his country faithfully, but now even they are after him. »

Umbrella Guns, Iggy Azalea & Ellie Goulding In New 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' Trailer

23 hours ago

Trailers for this weekend's The Equalizer made use of a new Eminem track and now Fox is turning to Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding for the marketing of the delayed Colin Firth actioner Kingsman: The Secret Service. Directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men: First Class), Kingsman is based on the comic book "The Secret Service", telling the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius. Firth stars alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Caine in the film set for a February 13, 2015 release. Check out the new trailer below. yt id="kl8F-8tR8to" width="640" »

Rumors of a PG-13 'Deadpool' Rile Up Internet, Co-Writer Responds

22 September 2014 4:14 PM, PDT

Last week it was announced Fox would bring Deadpool to theaters in 2016 with Ryan Reynolds starring and Tim Miller directing. For the longest time it was said the film would likely never hit the big screen due to the fact the film would likely earn an R rating and Reynolds has constantly said that would be the case if it ever did get made. Well, a rumor started hitting the movie blogs earlier today when over Meet the Movie Press host Mark Reilly said, "They figured out how to make it PG-13. And therefore 'not lose its soul' - and that's a quote - of the script so that they can make it." Could it bec Now, one of the film's co-writers, Rhett Reese, has tweeted saying, "Hey, guys, no one knows yet whether Deadpool will be R or PG-13. There may not be an announcement for a long while. »

Zack Snyder Slow Down

22 September 2014 4:04 PM, PDT

If there's one thing Zack Snyder does well, it's his use of slow motion. I still recall that moment in Watchmen where Malin Ackerman spins away from a massive explosion, her hair shielding her face (see it here). Oddly enough, that moment isn't included in Jaume R. Lloret's look at Snyder's use of slow motion in Watchmen, 300, Legend of the Guardians and Sucker Punch in the video below. The omission of Man of Steel and Dawn of the Dead has me trying to recall if Snyder used his standard slow motion for such dramatic effect in those filmsc I can't remember. I'm sure Snyder wasn't the first to use this slow motion in such a way, but I know every time I see a film attempting to do it I immediately think of Snyder as it's sort of his visual signature, but will he drop it even further for Batman v. »

Box Office Actuals: 'Maze Runner' Finishes #1 with Over $70 Million Worldwide

22 September 2014 1:34 PM, PDT

The weekend's box office actuals are in and The Maze Runner estimates were spot on as the new franchise starter brought in $32.5 million this weekend and has already seen the sequel, The Scorch Trials, receive a 2015 release date, less than a year from now. On a reported $34 million budget, the film has already brought in over $70 million worldwide. In second, and dipping a bit from estimates, is Liam Neeson's A Walk Among the Tombstones. Estimated at $13.1 million, the film finished with $12.75 million, which isn't much, but for points in the reader predictions challenge it can mean a lot. Finishing third and also dipping slightly from estimates is the ensemble dramedy This is Where I Leave You, which finished with $11.55 million. The weekend's other new release that was generating a lot of attention was Kevin Smith's Tusk, which opened in 602 theaters and only managed $846,831 for a $1,407 per theater average. »
