Limited Paper: Craig Drake Dropping a Dozen Blade Runner, Kill Bill, and Star Trek AP Prints Tomorrow

16 December 2012 3:40 PM, PST

The Mondo Gallery’s Brandenburg and Drake showcase will almost certainly be remembered as 2012’s biggest pleasant surprise:  it totally snuck up on us, delivering an uppercut of awesome that no one saw coming.  Two months later, at the most recent Mondo Gallery opening, people were still talking about how thoroughly they’d been caught off-guard by that show.   Since then, Craig Drake has gone from being one of the more obscure contributors on the Mondo payroll to one of its most respected.  Even fans that aren’t hip to Drake’s style (basically: “Pat Nagle by way of a Harry Knowles fever-dream”) seem to respect the fact that his work is unlike anything else currently being produced in Poster World. And tomorrow, Drake is scheduled to drop a huge batch of APs via his online store, giving the newly-converted (and everyone who missed out the first time around) one »

Limited Paper: Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Wants to Sell You a Poster, Bathe in Your Liquor

16 December 2012 3:36 PM, PST

Lately, a few readers have written in to ask why Limited Paper doesn’t cover gig posters (one of these emails was written with such inexplicable—not to mention hilarious—hostility that I had to call a friend and read it aloud to him immediately).  You sure you wanna know the truth?!  Well, strap in, bitches: here comes an answer that’s just as electrifying as the question that preceded it. Ahem: the reality is, Collider is a film-oriented site, and in the interest of keeping things thematically consistent, I try to keep Limited Paper focused on film-related screenings, posters, and gallery shows, every day, rain or shine.  Except for today, of course.  Today we’re taking break from the norm, and we’ve got a few special guests on-hand to help facilitate this impromptu detour.  Ready for shit to get weird?  Meet me after the jump. Look, this is »

First Official Images from The Hangover Part III and Red 2; Todd Phillips Says Hangover 3 Is Alan’s Story

16 December 2012 12:22 PM, PST

Though we’ve seen set photos aplenty from the anticipated upcoming sequels The Hangover Part III and Red 2, the first official images from both films have now landed online.  The images from the third and presumably final entry in the Hangover trilogy promise more madness, as we see an Abbey Road-ish pic of The Wolfpack (ie. Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, and Bradley Cooper) set against the silhouette of Las Vegas.  Though we’ll definitely see the group travel back to Vegas in the sequel, the city is “just one of their stops,” so we’re (hopefully) not in for yet another rehash of the first film. As for the Red sequel, Galaxy Quest helmer Dean Parisot steps into the director’s chair this time around, and this first image gives us a look at Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, and John Malkovich striking the “cool guys don’t look at explosions” pose. »

Middle-earth by the Numbers: From Lord Of The Rings to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

16 December 2012 10:18 AM, PST

The Lord of the Rings trilogy stands as a singular achievement in the history of cinema.  Peter Jackson would have to be crazy to return to this world in the shadow of the enormous financial and artistic success of the Rings series.  Thankfully Jackson is crazy, and just kicked off another Tolkien-based trilogy with the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. To explore the legacy of The Lord of the Rings and how The Hobbit matches up, I tried to capture how the series has evolved over the last decade with Middle-earth by the Numbers.  The feature provides a numbers-based snapshot of each movie and its place in the filmography by looking at the box office, critical reception, and miscellaneous facts. Hit the jump for a comprehensive review of Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, Return of the King, and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.   Fellowship of the »

16 December 2012 9:26 AM, PST

Five years after writer/director Judd Apatow introduced audiences to Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) in Knocked Up, their life is being revisited and explored much deeper in the honest yet hilarious look at marriage and parenthood in This is 40. Pete is struggling to keep his record label afloat, Debbie is hoping her clothing boutique will turn a profit, and their two daughters – 13-year-old Sadie (Maude Apatow) and 8-year-old Charlotte (Iris Apatow) – are just trying to navigate parents, school and boys, all while finding their way in the world together. During a press conference to promote the film’s December 21st theatrical release, co-stars Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd talked about the toughest aspects of turning 40, the most difficult scene to get through without laughing, preparing for the film’s more awkward moments, relating to their character’s frustration with life, and how they felt about watching themselves in the film. »

Mib 3, The Hobbit, Lincoln, Looper, and More Make Oscar Shortlist for Best Makeup

15 December 2012 3:57 PM, PST

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has narrowed down the contenders for the Best Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar for the upcoming 85th Academy Awards.  The shortlist includes showy stuff like Hitchcock and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, along with the more subdued work like Looper, Lincoln, and Snow White and the Huntsman.  The one to watch for the win, though, is Rick Baker’s excellent makeup effects from Men in Black 3 as Baker has previously won this award 7 times, including for 1997's Men in Black.  Notably left out of the race is Cloud Atlas, which put makeup to heavy use in order for its ensemble of actors to play multiple roles, switching race and gender.  Response to the film’s makeup work was fairly split, but I’m surprised it didn’t at least make the Oscar shortlist.

Top 5: Man Of Steel, The Hobbit Interviews, Pacific Rim, Gangster Squad Set Visit, After Earth

15 December 2012 2:13 PM, PST

I offered a similar sentiment following the tragedy at Aurora, Co back in July and I'll do the same today: the event that unfolded yesterday in Newtown, Ct is inexcusable and genuinely heartbreaking, even from a distance. The optimist in me wants to believe that any negative situation can be used to educate and improve the world we live in going forward. In this case, I'm hopeful but unsure that's possible. On behalf of everyone here at Collider, I want to offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of those who were lost yesterday. As petty as it may seem, I feel fortunate to be able to offer a bit of diversion to your day with this week's Top 5. Included in a trailer-heavy rotation this week is a new cut from Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, The Hobbit interviews with Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis and more, the »

Friday Box Office: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Takes in $37.5 Million on Opening Day

15 December 2012 8:57 AM, PST

Nine years after The Return of the King wrapped up director Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Middle Earth is back.  An Unexpected Journey, the first of three films Jackson based on Jrr Tolkein’s The Hobbit, debuted yesterday in 4,045 locations. That included 3,160 3D and 461 ‘Hfr’ 3D sites and was a record launch for December. No surprise, then, that The Hobbit is set to smash many more records this month. On its first full day in theatres, An Unexpected Journey took in an estimated $37.5 million, including $13 million from 3,100 midnight premieres. That ranks as the all-time best debut for December, topping the $34.4 million The Return of the King earned on its Wednesday, 2003 premiere.  Weekend projections for The Hobbit are in the $95 million range, which would easily top I Am Legend's all-time December record of $77.2 million. An Unexpected Journey already took in $27.2 million overseas ahead of its Us debut, »

Director Sacha Gervasi Talks Hitchcock, How the Test Screening Process Influenced the Film, Focusing on Alma, My Dinner With Herve, and More

15 December 2012 8:19 AM, PST

With awards season in full swing, and Hitchcock having just received a nomination for Best Actress (Helen Mirren) for the Golden Globe Awards, Collider was invited to chat with director Sacha Gervasi recently.  During the interview about the film and its exploration of the little known romantic and creative relationship between Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife, Alma Reville (Mirren), the filmmaker talked about intentionally keeping a level of fantasy to the story, the unexpected decision to focus on Alma’s creative contribution to Hitchcock’s career more than the man himself, his first exposure to the films of Hitchcock, how the test screening process affected the finished product, and the handful of deleted scenes that he can put on the DVD.  He also talked about his next film, My Dinner with Hervé, based on when he interviewed Hervé Villechaize (with Peter Dinklage set to play the French actor »

Catch Me If You Can Blu-ray Review

15 December 2012 8:16 AM, PST

In director Steven Spielberg’s four decade-long career, the filmmaker has tackled a variety of genres and topics that amounts to a delightfully diverse oeuvre.  In the early 2000s, Spielberg was coming off three back-to-back films that dealt with fairly heady material (Saving Private Ryan, A.I., and Minority Report) and decided to tackle something a bit lighter.  He assembled a top notch cast led by Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks, and the result is arguably one of the most entertaining films of Spielberg’s entire career: Catch Me If You Can.  The 2002 film has been digitally remastered and released on Blu-ray for the very first time, and you can read my review of the home video release after the jump. The Film  Catch Me If You Can is based on the life of Frank Abagnale Jr. who, before he turned 19, had successfully posed as a Pan Am pilot, a doctor, »

14 December 2012 2:02 PM, PST

Tron fans had reason to rejoice a little over a week ago when we reported that Disney is now moving forward with a sequel to 2010’s Tron: Legacy.  The follow-up has been in development since that film’s release, but new Disney Studios head Alan Horn sees Tron 3 as a priority, and so Jesse Wigutow has been brought on to pen the latest draft of the script in order to get things moving.  Legacy star Garrett Hedlund recently confirmed his inevitable involvement in the pic, but details regarding the sequel have been few and far between. Steve recently participated in an exclusive interview with Legacy director Joseph Kosinski in anticipation for his upcoming sci-fi film Oblivion, and he kindly provided a lengthy update on Tron 3, which he intends to direct.  Kosinski talked about the status of the script, the fact that this had to be their Empire Strikes »

14 December 2012 1:31 PM, PST

The indie drama The Girl features Australian actress Abbie Cornish in a tragic, heartfelt and ultimately hopeful performance as Ashley Colton, a single mother in Texas who is struggling with the loss of her son to Social Services.  When her path collides with a young girl from Mexico, she finds herself in the middle of a life-changing journey that forces her to confront and deal with the cycle of her past. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Abbie Cornish talked about how she came to be a part of this film, how easy she found this character to relate to, learning to speak with a Texas accent and in fluent Spanish (for which she had three months of lessons), how quickly she bonded with the young actress who plays Rosa (Maritza Santiago Hernandez), how intense the entire experience was, and the way she thinks things might have turned out for her character. »
