Peter Jackson Recommends Guillermo del Toro To Direct Skull Island

1 hour ago

There are two things to know before starting to get into this article. First: some artists out there are just besties for life, so if you ask one about the other, they'll automatically get warm and cuddly, no matter the context. Second: if you're a movie executive, you're probably not going to get Guillermo del Toro to make your movie, since the guy is busy from now until Ragnarok. It's just how it is. All that said, it's not a huge surprise that when a juicy Peter Jackson-related vacancy in the directing game opens up, he's totally going to talk up his buddy Guillermo as a candidate. The vacancy in question today is Skull Island, the new Legendary Pictures-backed King Kong revival that was recently announced at San Diego Comic-Con... much to the surprise of King Kong director Peter Jackson. And since it only made sense that frequent Legendary »

Zach Braff Walks Us Through An Exclusive Wish I Was Here Clip

3 hours ago

Zach Braff.s relationship study Wish I Was Here has slowly and steadily been building up support as it rolls out into more markets. The writer-director.s follow up to the influential Garden State impressed critics and crowds at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Now it is unveiling itself to select cities, picking up buzz and starting conversations as it plays. (I, for one, want to at least see Mandy Patinkin in the annual awards race for the subtle, sweet performance he gives as Zach Braff.s ailing father in this sentimental drama.) Though he has only made two films over the course of his career, Zach Braff (Scrubs) has developed a reputation for being open and interactive with his fans. So it didn.t surprise us when Focus Features asked if we wanted to host the above clip, which shares an important moment from the film but »

Watch Disney's Into The Woods Trailer And Dive Deep Into Fairy Tale Land

3 hours ago

Just yesterday Disney unfurled a treasure trove of stills from their much anticipated movie musical Into The Woods, but today they've given up a first look of its fairy tale figures in action in the form of a teaser trailer. The full clip is above. Get ready to get your theater-geek capes on! For those unfamiliar with the Broadway musical from James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, this Into The Woods trailer breaks down its most basic premise: "To lift a witch's curse they would need the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn, the slipper as pure as gold." We're given glimpses of these McGuffins, teasing the inclusion of such classic fairy tale characters as Jack of "Jack and the Beanstalk" fame with his cow that he'd trade for fateful magic beans, Little Red Riding Hood and her namesake cape, »

Jodie Foster And George Clooney Look To Cash In With Money Monster

3 hours ago

Sometimes actors make great directors. Ron Howard, Kevin Costner, George Clooney and Jodie Foster can all attest to that fact, as they've all directed and/or starred in films that would go on to become Academy Award nominees, if not winners. An actor being directed by another actor is pretty special, and can lead to some really great work. But an actor/director supervising someone else who occupies that rarified air? That could be something to behold, especially considering the last two names on the above list are collaborating on an extremely timely project that screams awards season. Entertainment Weekly reports that the pair of Academy Award winners are pairing up to make the film Money Monster, with Foster directing and Clooney starring as Lee Gates - a TV stock analyst who is taken hostage under dire circumstances and killer ratings. His captor lost all of their money thanks to »

Michael Keaton's Birdman Gets Even Stranger With A Stunning New Trailer

3 hours ago

Warning: This trailer contains language that is Nsfw. Michael Keaton is going a bit meta with Birdman, a movie about an actor best-known for playing a superhero in decades past. We've been fascinated by this dark comedy since its first trailer hit. But the official international trailer above, is giving us a deeper look into this buzzed about pic. The first trailer introduced us to Riggan Thomson, a has-been whose brightest brush with fame was long ago when he played the titular fictional superhero Birdman. Now, he's haggard, desperately hanging on to his crumbling celebrity. And maybe he's crazy, strolling through New York City's Time Square in his underwear. He fantasizes about his superhero role coming to life and saving him from his troubles. But those troubles were vague. Mostly, the first trailer established a subversive superhero narrative with a clever brand of humor, and a cast stacked with stars »

Quentin Tarantino, Chris Nolan & J.J. Abrams Save Film From Extinction

6 hours ago

Digital filmmaking has overtaken analog, but there are some directors who refuse to let film stock die out. And so Hollywood studios are stepping in to lend support to Kodak in its time of crisis. Following Fujifilm's shutting down its film stock production last year, Kodak is the only company left that still makes the nearly obsolete medium. However, powerful directors like J.J. Abrams, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and Judd Apatow have joined forces to save Kodak from the brink of extinction. Together--with the help of some unnamed allies--they pushed Hollywood studios to step in and financially support Kodak so that film stock can continue to be made and processed. This will include keeping open Fotokem, the last film processing lab in Hollywood. THR reports that Kodak CEO Jeff Clarke declared in a statement: After extensive discussions with filmmakers, leading studios and others who recognize the unique artistic and »

The Avengers 3 Aiming For 2018

13 hours ago

Oh Marvel, you release date wizards. Right before San Diego Comic Con, the studio swooped in like vultures to claim the May 4th, 2018 release date, just after they had already announced a whole bunch of other releases. Given that Avengers opened at the beginning of May 2012, and we're getting Avengers: Age Of Ultron at the start of May 2015, it makes sense that the 2018 spot is waiting for that big third Avengers blow-out, wouldn't you say, Kevin Feige? Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Feige unveiled the non-confirmation confirmation in regards to what exactly that release date for Avengers 3 will be. "Well, we haven't really talked about what we'd see Avengers 3. I presume we'd like to stick to three years between Avengers movies like we did [between the first and second]. So it will probably be three years between Avengers 2 and Avengers 3." Marvel has three release dates set up for 2018. In addition »

12 Funky Facts You Need To Know About James Brown's Biopic Get On Up

14 hours ago

Tate Taylor's Get On Up tells the tumultuous story of James Brown, the Godfather Of Soul who cut a wide swath through the music world, changing both the art and commerce of the modern rock star. But for years, producer Brian Grazer slaved over making a new film that brings Brown back to the masses after his 2006 death. For the longest time, it seemed certain that Get On Up wasn't going to get made. And then, through the involvement of producer Mick Jagger, the project came to fruition. The end result is a rowdy, rambunctious film about a moment in music history where everything stopped to accommodate Brown's ruthless talent and ingenuity. Recently, the Get On Up press conference was held in New York City, and it allowed journalists a chance to talk to Chadwick Boseman (who plays Brown), as well as Jill Scott, Octavia Spencer, Dan Aykroyd, producer »

Read This Delightful Letter Tom Hiddleston Wrote Joss Whedon About Avengers

14 hours ago

No matter how talented they might be, actors are still reliant on other people to do their jobs. They need a writer to give them something to work with and a director that understands where they.re trying to take their performance. They need to be put into a position to succeed. Fortunately for Tom Hiddleston, he knew he was in for something special the second he read Joss Whedon.s draft of The Avengers. In fact, he was so amped up about the possibilities that he fired off an epic letter to the writer/ director. The correspondence stayed with Joss Whedon following the movie, but it was published on Business Insider this week for the first time. Not surprisingly, Marvel fans are eating it up, both because it.s a great behind the scenes tidbit and because it makes Tom Hiddleston somehow seem even more charming. You can read »

Thanos Won't Appear In Avengers: Age Of Ultron

15 hours ago

There was a sizzle in the air during that post-credits sequence in The Avengers. Who is this purple guy, and what are his plans for Earth? He's gone unmentioned in the Marvel films since - though comic book fans know him as the Mad Titan Thanos. And while the character will be showing up in Guardians of the Galaxy and finally name-dropped, it looks like it's going to be a while before we know much more about him During San Diego Comic Con, Marvel head Kevin Feige revealed to Comic Book Resources that Josh Brolin's Thanos will not be making an appearance in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. "He's not a part of Avengers 2. I think Thanos kind of does what he wants, shows up where he wants to. And I'm not going to tell him otherwise, so you don't know exactly.

Judd Apatow's Business Trip Getting A Rewrite From Team America: World Police Writer

15 hours ago

Judd Apatow's been hard at work for a couple of years on Business Trip, a comedy showcase for Leslie Mann set at a corporate retreat. Universal bought the script in 2009 with Apatow attached to produce and Mann to star. But development has dragged on for a couple of years, so recently Apatow has brought in one of the industry's heavy comedy hitters for a re-write. The Wrap reports that Pam Brady has stepped aboard Business Trip to rewrite the comedy. Originally penned by Stacey Harman (The Goldbergs), the plot follows a group of women who embark upon a business trip where... something wacky happens. On company time. It's vague. Does one of them get bitten by a radioactive spider? Does another one get abducted into space, only to join a ragtag group of intergalactic bounty hunters? Does one of them meet a hunky dance instructor in the Catskills in »

Con Air 2 Might Take Place In The Most Ridiculous Location Possible

16 hours ago

Set the bar as high or as low as you want: one of the great American action movies of the nineties is Simon West's Con Air: a bombastically ridiculous slice of Jerry Bruckheimer excess where one man must stand alone against a plane taken over by vicious convicts. Simon West took what was, on paper, another Die Hard variation (Die Hard On A Prison Plane!) and loaded it with brutal R-Rated thrills, outsized characters and a self-mocking sense of humor that set it apart from its peers. For years, fans have speculated about the follow-up. And so has director Simon West, it seems. Now all we need is an executive crazy enough to make Con Air 2. Simon West spoke to ScreenDaily about his new project Salty when the conversation turned to a potential Con Air 2. And West was prepared. Oh, was he prepared. "There are always rumors about »

Harrison Ford Is Back Up On His Feet Following His Star Wars: Episode VII Injury

18 hours ago

It was all the way back in the first half of June when Harrison Ford had a bit of an accident on-board the Millennium Falcon while shooting Star Wars: Episode VII. Thanks to a malfunctioning hydraulic door, the legendary actor broke his foot, and reports said that he would possibly be off his feet for as many as eight weeks. This was very obviously bad news for the cast and crew of the upcoming sci-fi epic - but the good news is that Ford is now on the mend. The folks at the New York Daily News have gotten their hands on a photograph of Harrison Ford in Santa Monica, California walking without either a cast on his leg nor crutches under his arms. While there was a bandage around his ankle, the actor was seen getting into the pilot seat of his personal helicopter and apparently wasn't walking with »

To 3D Or Not To 3D: Buy The Right Guardians Of The Galaxy Ticket

20 hours ago

While every Marvel Studios film has been released in 3D since Kenneth Branagh.s Thor back in 2011, the reality that it.s probably the weakest area of the company.s track record. None of the movies have ever been filmed in native stereoscope, and even though post-conversion has improved greatly over the last few years, Marvel.s features have never really looked that great with an added dimension. But that.s not stopping them from trying. Enter James Gunn.s Guardians of the Galaxy. The 10th film from Marvel Studios is heading into theaters this weekend, and will be doing so both in 3D and 2D formats. Rather than making you guys gamble on spending an extra $5 for a pair of glasses with your movie ticket, however, we have once again applied our patented "To 3D or Not To 3D" breakdown system to help you determine the best way to »

The Mummy Reboot Is Still Happening And Alex Kurtzman Will Direct

21 hours ago

The Mummy is just the latest title to earn a reboot from Hollywood eager to repackage familiar names to us. The latest version of the legend is set to bow May 22nd, 2016, but has been director-less for awhile. Fortunately, the studio is eager to team with a man who mixes blockbuster experience with a totally fresh eye behind the camera. Yep, Universal's calling to the bullpen, and Alex Kurtzman is coming out. The Wrap reports that screenwriter Alex Kurtzman has been selected to helm the new version of The Mummy for Universal. This is a new vision of the character, distanced completely from the high adventure of the 1999 reboot and its sequels, and more indebted to the horror origins of the character. This new vision would harken back particularly to the movies from the silent and early talkies era that branded the Mummy as one of Universal's classic monsters like »

Into The Woods Images Reveal Prince Chris Pine And Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf

23 hours ago

We've been reporting plenty on Into The Woods and the incredible cast that Disney has assembled for the live-action movie musical. Now, after months of having to repost that one mediocre picture of Meryl Streep looking like a retired Bellatrix Lestrange, we finally have an avalanche of new images! People has shared a slew, including the one up top that has the aforementioned Streep towering over a trembling James Corden as The Baker. But Corden, who is the hero of this movie based on the Stephen Sondheim Broadway sensation, gets a better close-up in the pic below. There he's with Emily Blunt, who plays the Baker's Wife. And can I just add that Corden looks downright dashing here? He's come a ways since his time as the bumbling roomie on Doctor Who. Next up comes a bit of romance in the form of Rapunzel, played here by Mackenzie Mauzy. Then »
