Are Movie Theater Chains Mad At Sony?

1 hour ago

In case you didn't already realize, the whole distribution situation involving Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's The Interview has been a bit of a mess. Originally the film was set to get a wide release in over 3000 theaters nationwide, but following major chains pulling out and Sony initially canceling release plans, now the movie is going out to about 300 independent theaters and is already available for rent or purchase on Google Play/YouTube. Given the way things have turned out, one might think that the major theater chains might be a bit miffed about how everything worked out - but apparently there's a bit of debate going on surrounding that subject. Following the reveal yesterday that Sony had rejuvenated plans to release The Interview for Christmas, Deadline published an article saying that exhibitors were "in a rage" about the decision, citing that they have been treated unfairly by the »

4 hours ago

The big screen adaptation of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey is surely going to be at the center of a good deal of controversy between now and its release in theaters this February - but the most recent case comes to us from England, where a risque promotion for the movie featuring the still below has caused a bit of a stir. To promote the fact that tickets are now on sale to see Fifty Shades of Grey, the Welwyn Garden City cinema in Hertfordshire, UK posted a large banner outside of their theater promoting the movie, but, according to the Welwyn Hatfield Times, public outcry has led to the advertisement being pulled down. While we can't show you an image of the actual ad, the image that was used comes directly from the trailer and features the image you see above of a seemingly-naked Dakota Johnson blindfolded »

5 hours ago

They may not have released a superhero film in 2014, but Warner Bros. made a big splash this year when they finally announced their DC Comics film slate from 2016 until 2020.

Well, as a Christmas Eve gift, DC Comics has finally answered this question once and for all: yes, it is! While going over the comic book company.s "Moments That Mattered" in 2014, the DC Comics Blog mentioned that every film that was announced in October exists in the same universe. Meaning that when we see the World.s Mightiest Mortal flying across the big screen in 2019, he will be doing so in a world that also includes Superman, Batman and other famous »

9 hours ago

Once upon a time, in a far-off place, an ensemble of some of Hollywood.s most talented singers, actors and performers gathered on a soundstage to run through lines, practice harmonies, and assemble what would eventually become Rob Marshall.s Into The Woods. You will be able to see the fruit of their labor on Christmas Day when the Stephen Sondheim musical blasts into movie theaters nationwide. But at least one high-profile cast member is glad that you didn.t see the preparation that went into the creation of the movie musical, because things weren.t always so rosy on Into The Woods. We were lucky enough to speak with Emily Blunt, who plays The Baker.s Wife in Rob Marshall.s adaptation of Sondheim.s award-winning musical.

9 hours ago

Chris Pine has admitted that his attempt to rejuvenate the Jack Ryan character at the start of the year didn.t quite work out. However the Star Trek Into Darkness actor admitted that he still holds high hopes that the franchise will one day be given the cinematic treatment it deserves. Even if he.s not the guy to play Jack Ryan when it does. During a chat with Moviefone to promote his all singing and all dancing turn in Into The Woods, the conversation turned to Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and a potential sequel. However Chris Pine confessed that Shadow Recruit.s underwhelming box office performance means that a follow-up isn.t likely. "No. I don.t think it made enough money for that to happen. That.s one of my deep regrets, that we didn.t totally get that right. It.s a great franchise and if it »

Interstellar's Composer Refuses To Admit There's Anything Wrong With The Sound

10 hours ago

If you saw Interstellar in theaters and thought it strange that a few pieces of dialogue were drowned out by the sound effects, you.d be valid in your worry. This issue with the mixing has caused quite a stir among moviegoers, but according to the film.s composer, Hans Zimmer, there isn.t actually a problem. During a roundtable discussion for The Hollywood Reporter with fellow film composers Marco Beltrami (The Homesman), Danny Elfman (Big Eyes), John Powell (How To Train Your Dragon 2) and Trent Reznor (Gone Girl), Zimmer was asked about this issue. Though the sound mixing seems to be a widely recognized source of error, the composer replied: You know, one of the things Trent brought up was that we work as a team. For instance, Richard King, our sound designer, Alex Gibson, our music editor, Chris . we are all in this together. And we really »

The 10 Best Movies Of 2014, According To Sean

11 hours ago

This was an impressive year for film. No matter the genre . from horror to heroes, awards-bait to animation . 2014 offered a buffet of challenging, disturbing, uplifting and rewarding cinematic excursions. This also was a diverse year for cinema. We had iconic storytellers working at the top of their individual games (Wes Anderson, David Fincher and Paul Thomas Anderson come to mind). And we saw relative newcomers like Ava DuVernay, Damien Chazelle and someone named Angelina Jolie announce their presence as directors to which we need to pay close attention. This was the year that the comic-book genre planted its deepest roots, inviting audiences on goofy interstellar adventures and expanding the scope of traditional "super" powers like the X-Men series. And what more can be said about the monumental achievement of Richard Linklater.s 12-year odyssey, Boyhood? This, then, is my list of the 10 best films of 2014. All lists are subjective, and »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Just Got A 5-Minute Middle Finger From This Honest Trailer

12 hours ago

Oh, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Where do we start with you? We actually got a reboot of the beloved franchise after more than two decades, but it completely fell flat on its face under the weight of CGI and Megan Fox.s so-called "acting." Now, as if to kick an enemy in the stomach when he.s down, a new installment of the Honest Trailers series has arrived to drive the final nail into the coffin. Screen Junkies. latest video takes the words right out of our mouths when it proclaims: From the producer hellbent on taking all the fun out of your childhood toys [that.s Michael Bay] comes the reboot that somehow gets the spirit of the four heroes right but absolutely nothing else." When Michael Bay was announced as a producer on the Tmnt reboot way back when, so many people predicted it would bomb. And they »

Why Guardians Of The Galaxy's Director Thinks The Star-Lord Walkman Complaints Are Stupid

22 hours ago

When it comes to nit-picking Guardians of the Galaxy, one of the most commonly repeated points is that Star-Lord's cassette and Walkman would either have not survived the rough-and-tumble 26 years that he has spent in space, or would have simply run out of juice years ago. It turns out that director James Gunn is kind of tired of people bringing this up, and believes that the answer to people's nit-pick is actually quite obvious. The Marvel Studios filmmaker took to his personal Facebook page today to write a piece fully explaining and clarifying recent statements about the potential future of the Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers coming together on the big screen, and he took the opportunity to use the forum as a place to explain how Peter Quill's Awesome Mix Vol. 1 and Sony Walkman have managed to survive for years and years despite being rather crappy ' »

Bet You Can Guess Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actor

23 December 2014 6:10 PM, PST

Adam Sandler didn't exactly have the greatest 2014. Blended performed nowhere near the level of the actor's past big releases, and both of his recent attempts at more serious fair - Men, Women & Children and The Cobbler - got largely negative responses following their premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival. As though that weren't bad enough, now he has been declared the most overpaid actor in Hollywood for the second year in a row. Forbes has released their annual list of stars who have been getting way too much money for under-performing projects, and Sandler has once again taken the top spot thanks to a ratio that sees him only earning he studios $3.20 for every dollar he is paid in salary. This is actually worse than his statistic from last year, which said that he was bringing in $3.40 for every dollar. That's definitely not great news for the comedian. What's »

Everything Wrong With Guardians Of The Galaxy In One Video

23 December 2014 3:58 PM, PST

If you're a big fan of Guardians of the Galaxy, you should be warned: the following video and latest installment of Cinema Sins is going to nit-pick the hell out of Marvel Studios' most recent blockbuster: Guardians of the Galaxy may have been one of Marvel.s biggest successes, but not even it is immune to criticism. Just as they have with other popular films (including many superhero flicks), the folks at Cinema Sins have picked the intergalactic blockbuster as the next subject punching bag. Make no mistake - they.re just as merciless with Guardians of the Galaxy as they are with everything else, so don.t expect a soft approach to our ragtag group of heroes and their adversaries. In about 15 minutes, Guardians tallies up a total of 113 "sins" in the video. For the most part, these "flaws" are minor nit-picks. The major complaints are towards the »

As part of the ever-growing, insanely popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, Peyton Reed's Ant-Man is easily one of our most anticipated movies of 2015- but when exactly will we be getting our first look at it? If new information is any indication, it's possible that it could be as little as a week away.
