Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe Talk Skyfall, Collaborating with Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig, and More

11 November 2012 2:11 PM, PST

At the recent New York press day for Skyfall, I was able to speak with Naomie Harris and Berenice Marlohe (the newest "Bond" girl).  We talked about  what was it like making Skyfall and collaborating with Sam Mendes, how the film is very grounded and it's the old versus the new, since they both have intimate scenes with Daniel Craig, what was he like to work with and a lot more. I absolutely loved Skyfall.  Director Sam Mendes has crafted one of the best James Bond movies ever made.  While the Bond franchise is now 50 years old, Mendes has shown the best might be yet to come.  I really can’t recommend this film enough.  For all our Skyfall coverage including our review, clips, posters, my set visit and more, click here.  Skyfall also stars Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Helen McCrory, Ralph Fiennes, and Ben Whishaw.  Hit the jump to watch the interview. »

Hollywood! Adapt This: Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?

11 November 2012 11:42 AM, PST

For the most part, a fair amount of our favorite childhood movies and TV shows are probably better left in our fond memories. But nostalgia alone will not prevent Hollywood from rebooting them for modern audiences; in fact, studios count on nostalgia to draw in old fans along with a new crop who will buy up all of their merchandise. Occasionally, a property pops up that deserves new life for more reasons than monetary gain. Our world is becoming increasingly interactive on a global level. At the very least, a rudimentary knowledge of world geography is to be expected. Who in the world could possibly help kids  learn these facts and have fun while doing it? Hit the jump to find out. Hollywood! Adapt this: Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? It's hard to believe, but the Carmen Sandiego franchise has been around almost 30 years. The original 1985 educational computer »

Lorenzo di Bonaventura Talks 3D Conversion of G.I. Joe: Retaliation; Teases Snake Eyes/Storm Shadow Fight That’s “Perfect” for 3D

11 November 2012 11:01 AM, PST

This past summer wasn’t exactly lacking in blockbuster material, but many will remember that it was originally supposed to have one more actioner on tap: the sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  With its release date a little over a month away, Paramount abruptly pushed the film’s release date back a whopping nine months.  The official reason given for the move was that they wanted to post-convert the pic to 3D, but many surmised that the reshoots were being done to un-kill the suddenly popular Channing Tatum. Steve recently spoke with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura about a number of upcoming projects (read what he had to say about Red 2 right here), and during their conversation, di Bonaventura talked about the nature of the 3D conversion of G.I. Joe, the last-minute release date change, and more.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say. Di Bonaventura began »

In Season 5, when many shows are already on the decline, the FX drama series Sons of Anarchy has proven to be stronger and more popular than ever. Nearing the end of its season with only a handful of episodes left, things feel like they’re ready to explode for many of the characters and storylines.

Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielberg Talk Lincoln, Showing Lincoln as Politician and Father, and Release Timing around the Election

10 November 2012 2:38 PM, PST

In Lincoln, as the Civil War neared its conclusion in early 1865, newly re-elected President Abraham Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis, in a truly remarkable performance) was determined to unite Congress in passing a Constitutional amendment to abolish slavery. Facing fierce pro-slavery opposition, Lincoln employed strategy, persuasion and political muscle to get a swift and decisive victory before the impeding Confederate surrender, so as not to risk losing the opportunity to end slavery. At the film’s press day, actor Daniel Day-Lewis and director Steven Spielberg talked about their portrait of a man considered America’s greatest leader, the greatest challenges in bringing this iconic figure to life, what they were surprised to learn about the man through their research, deciding which aspects of Lincoln’s life to include in the film, illustrating the life of the politician versus the life of the father, the incredible supporting cast, how Spielberg finally convinced Day-Lewis »

Top 5: Skyfall Interviews, Beautiful Creatures Set Visit, World War Z Trailer, The Last Stand Set Visit, Star Wars Sequel News

10 November 2012 1:05 PM, PST

Last night I uncovered a gem from 2011 for the first time and my only regret is that I didn't take the time to seek it out sooner. Writer/director Thomas McCarthy's dramedy Win Win is not only consistently funny but also chock full of both heartwarming and heartbreaking moments. The performances are terrific all-around, the script is strong albeit somewhat easy to telegraph, and the wrestling scenes are even surprisingly intense at times (I mean, it was nominated for a prestigious Espy for "Best Sports Film" after all). Matt gave the film his full endorsement when he reviewed it at Sundance 2011 and I'm doing the same here today. Movie recommendations aside, in what was yet another busy week around these parts, the five standouts include our Skyfall interviews with Daniel Craig, Javier Bardem, director Sam Mendes and more, a Beautiful Creatures set visit recap, the first trailer for Brad Pitt's World War Z, »

Laura Linney Talks The Details, Hyde Park On Hudson, and More

10 November 2012 9:30 AM, PST

The film The Details, directed by Jacob Aaron Estes, stars Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth Banks as the familiar unhappy suburban couple with a raccoon problem. When Maguire has a need to win over his "wack-a-doodle" neighbor Lila (Laura Linney) his life is thrown upside down in an unpredictable and almost incomprehensible way. The journey of the characters in the film meanders through a series of connected but random events that question the values of truth and integrity and examines to what lengths good people will go to protect the ones they love. The film also features Ray Liotta, Kerry Washington and Dennis Haysbert.  At the New York press day, I was able to speak with one of it's stars, Laura Linney, and get her personal insight into the dark comedy. We talked about her experience on set, the development of her crazy character and she gave me some personal anecdotes »

Friday Box Office: Skyfall Takes Off with $30.8 Million Debut; Spielberg’s Lincoln Also Big in Only Eleven Locations

10 November 2012 8:59 AM, PST

For weeks, we’ve known that Skyfall was going to be huge. After the 23rd film in the James Bond franchise rocketed through its initial international engagements two weeks ago, a giant Us opening was all but guaranteed. Even so, Skyfall is now on track to be even more of a giant than we suspected. On Friday, Skyfall earned an estimated $30.8 million from its 3,503 locations, midnight screenings included. Add that to the $2.2 million 007 took in from his 463 IMAX premieres on Thursday and it looks like the secret agent could soar as high as $84 million by the end of the weekend. That would blow the previous Bond record of $67.8 million (set in 2008 by Quantum of Solace) out of the air. In fact, it’s possible that Skyfall could climb as high as $500 million worldwide by Monday. Given that Daniel Craig’s first two turns as 007 took weeks to reach that same mark, »

IronE Singleton Talks Latest Episode of The Walking Dead in Spoiler-Filled Interview

10 November 2012 6:19 AM, PST

The hit AMC drama series The Walking Dead is back for Season 3, with higher stakes, more threatening human villains and, of course, plenty of zombies.  The writers and producers have never been afraid to take the story where it needs to go, regardless of who ends up becoming a casualty and what the ripple effect is on those who survive, with this last episode being the perfect example of that. During this recent interview, actor IronE Singleton talked about how he had originally only signed on for two or three episodes, playing a character that didn’t appear in the comic books, how his own life story inspired T-Dog’s backstory, how he thinks having a baby in the group will affect the survivors in future episodes, and his favorite memories being a part of the show.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are spoilers. »
