Steven Spielberg Developing Minority Report TV Series with Godzilla Writer

7 minutes ago

Steven Spielberg is no stranger to the television landscape, but for one of his upcoming small screen projects it appears that he’s keen on mining one of his own properties.  Spielberg is developing a Minority Report TV series based on his Tom Cruise-fronted 2002 sci-fi thriller of the same name, per The Wrap.  As you well know, Minority Report was based on a Philip K. Dick short story that revolved around the PreCrime unit, which specialized in preventing crimes before they happened using a trio of “precogs” that could see the future.  Sounds like a pretty solid premise for a weekly TV series, no?  More after the jump. The Wrap reports that Spielberg is developing the Minority Report TV series via his Amblin Television studio, with Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein set to pen the screenplay.  In addition to Godzilla, Borenstein previously wrote Legendary’s long-delayed Seventh Son and is »

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For Review

10 minutes ago

In 2005, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City was an interesting novelty.  The directors were able to transfer Miller's visually distinct comics to the screen through the heavy use of CGI.  Not adapt; transfer.  The comic was used as a storyboard, and the directors filled in the gaps by casting a bunch of recognizable actors to play the roles.  For people who argue that adaptations should never stray from the source material, 2005's Sin City was perfect.  Although the novelty has run its course, Rodriguez and Miller are back nine years later with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, but the visual panache now feels like a crutch while also diminishing any authentic noir vibe the movie occasionally tries to convey.  Although the sequel is occasionally enjoyable thanks to the actors who are in on the exaggerated tone, the film feels like it was made by a couple of »

New White Bird In A Blizzard Trailer: Shailene Woodley Tackles Raging Hormones and a Missing Mother

41 minutes ago

Magnolia Pictures has released a new White Bird in a Blizzard trailer for director Gregg Araki’s (Kaboom) sexually charged drama.  Based on the Laura Kasichke novel of the same name, the story takes place in the 1980s and stars Shailene Woodley as a young woman relishing her newfound sexuality whose life is upended when her beautiful, enigmatic mother (Eva Green) suddenly goes missing.  Green has made a habit lately of turning in regularly scene-stealing work, and it appears that she tackles another slightly unhinged character here while Woodley displays her swell ability to lay out her emotions onscreen. Hit the jump to watch the new White Bird in a Blizzard trailer.  The film also stars Christopher MeloniGabourey SidibeThomas Jane, and Angela Basset.  White Bird in a Blizzard will be released on iTunes and VOD on September 25th and in theaters on October 24th.

Harry Potter Director David Yates in Talks to Helm Spinoff Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

1 hour ago

As the director behind the final four Harry Potter films starting with Order of the Phoenix, filmmaker David Yates was likely the most well-versed filmmaker in Potter lore.  Chris Columbus kicked the franchise off with the first two films, Alfonso Cuaron brought a maturity and unique artistic quality to the series, and Mike Newell injected his inherent Britishness into the franchise, but it was Yates who handled the conclusion of The Boy Who Lived.  And so it’s fitting that it now looks like he will get to start a Harry Potter franchise of his own, as news comes that Yates is in talks to helm the first installment in the spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.  More after the jump. There was no way that Warner Bros. was going to let go of the most successful film franchise in history after the release of Harry Potter and »

Annabelle Trailer Suggests the Doll Will Continue to Be Your Worst Nightmare

1 hour ago

That first teaser trailer for The Conjuring spinoff, Annabelle, made for a strong start, but the film’s first full trailer just dropped and it proves that Annabelle isn’t just a creepy doll shtick, but rather that it has the potential to blow the doors wide open to another deeply terrifying supernatural haunting. The Conjuring kicked off with a sequence during which Annabelle terrorized two nursing students, but by the looks of one particular shot in this trailer, her upcoming solo movie could go back to where it all started.  Hit the jump to check out the new Annabelle trailer for yourself.  The film stars Annabelle WallisAlfre WoodardWard HortonTony AmendolaEric Ladin and Brian Howe, and hits theaters on October 3rd. Spinoffs can be tough.  Annabelle was a powerful and very memorable element of The Conjuring, but could a villainous doll really carry a full feature? »

Young Ones Trailer Features Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult in a Fight for Water and Land

1 hour ago

Screen Media Films has released the Young Ones trailer online.  The story takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where water has become scarce and the only hope for a family becomes an irrigation pipeline that can revitalize their land.  This conflict sets off a battle between the family's patriarch Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) and Flem Lever, a young man (Nicholas Hoult) looking to romance Ernest's daughter Mary (Elle Fanning).  I caught Young Ones at Sundance, and it was one of the most frustrating movies I've seen in some time.  Taken at its individual elements—visuals, performances, structure—it's incredible.  But these parts never built to an emotional impact for me, and it was a struggle to figure out why.  I hope other viewers have more of a connection with the picture.  At the very least, it's a worthwhile curiosity.

Shane Black to Direct The Destroyer Adaptation for Sony

1 hour ago

It was pretty much a given that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang helmer Shane Black would have some heat coming off of directing the $1.5 billion-grossing Iron Man 3, but the guy is amassing a seriously stacked docket of upcoming projects.  The latest one to be added is an adaptation of the long-running Warren Murphy book series The Destroyer.  Sony Pictures announced today that Black will direct a feature film adaptation of the adventure series, with Fight Club scribe Jim Uhls penning the screenplay alongside James Mullaney.  The story follows Newark cop Remo Williams, who is framed, sentenced to death, executed, and then resurrected in order to serve as the enforcement arm for a top-secret division of the Us government called Cure.  The Dark Knight and Man of Steel producer Charles Roven will produce. Hit the jump for more on The Destroyer movie and Black’s current slate of upcoming projects. In addition to The Destroyer, »

New Nightcrawler Trailer Gets the Bloody Footage First, Police Second

2 hours ago

A new Nightcrawler trailer has been released online, and it's a bit more action-oriented than the ones we've seen before.  Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a young man who falls into the depths of L.A. crime journalism, and begins pushing the limits between covering the news and making it.  The previous trailer made the movie look more like a psychological thriller while this new one goes more into the action-crime elements with car wrecks, crime scenes, and accusations of obstruction of justice.  This is one of my must-see films at the Toronto International Film Festival, and I hope it reaches my high expectations. Hit the jump to check out the new Nightcrawler trailer.  The film opens October 31st, and also stars Bill Paxton, Rene Russo, and Riz Ahmed. Via Yahoo! Movies. Here's the official synopsis for Nightcrawler: Nightcrawler is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. »

Avatar Sequels Will Allow James Cameron to Express His Thoughts on the State of the World

2 hours ago

We’re getting more Avatar in 2016, 2017 and 2018, so a few months of no Avatar talk is no big deal, but if Avatar 2 really is going into production later this year as James Cameron said about a year ago or even in early 2015 as Zoe Saldana recently suggested, news is bound to start picking up. The last update came in early June and revealed that Sigourney Weaver was set to return for all three new films and now Cameron is speaking up about the timeline of those films and about his confidence in the stories that they’ll tell.  Hit the jump for more on the Avatar sequels. In a Variety piece about the challenges Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos is facing, there’s a good deal of talk about the studio’s ambitious plans for the next three Avatar films.  Apparently, they’re going to cost a whopping $1 billion, »

Sandra Bullock Confirmed to Star in David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis

2 hours ago

Last December, we reported that Sandra Bullock was in early talks to star in the political comedy Our Brand Is Crisis.  The story is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name from Rachel Boynton, and revolves around the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia to help elect Gonzalo Sanchez de Lozada as president.  According to Variety, Bullock has now signed on to star with David Gordon Green set to direct.  Bullock, who will also serve as an executive producer, agreed to lead the project after meeting with Green "who has been in the mix for the directing job for some time," and "the actress was convinced to join the project on the strength of his vision."  George Clooney and Grant Heslov are still executive producing from a script by Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). Bullock is also attached to star in Tate Taylor's Tupperware Unsealed, »

Akiva Goldsman May Pen New Draft of The Ring 3D

3 hours ago

Yes, Akiva Goldsman is an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, but have you seen Winter’s Tale?  That’s the kind of movie that is so bad, it could wind up becoming a warped classic for that very reason.  In fact, the group I saw it with still hasn’t stopped talking about it.  “I like pecans,” “I have a chicken,” Colin Farrell’s haircut, Russell Crowe’s finger-painting – the list of absurdities could go on and on. Even though A Beautiful Mind is quite the achievement and Goldsman has a number of other strong scripts to his name including Cinderella Man and a personal favorite guilty pleasure, Practical Magic, ever since Winter’s Tale, it’s been tough to get excited about anything he’s working on, and sadly, now that means having more doubts about the future of The Ring franchise as well.  Goldsman is currently in talks to pen »

The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death Trailer Goes to Dark Places

4 hours ago

The Woman in Black opened surprisingly big back in 2012, scoring $20.9 million during its opening weekend and then going on to lock in a grand total of $127.7 million worldwide.  With a $15 million production budget, the film clearly earned itself a sequel, but what’s another Woman in Black without Daniel Radcliffe?  Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine are certainly quality talent as well, but how can you expect them to draw the same crowd?  Then again, Radcliffe’s latest, What If, wound up being the fourth-lowest nationwide debut of the year. Anyway, the reason we’re talking The Woman in Black is because a teaser for the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, just dropped, and it’s a little underwhelming.  Hit the jump to check out The Woman in Black: Angel of Death trailer for yourself. Yup, that’s it.  There’s no concrete scare or creepy idea to take with you, »

Watch the Final Battle from Godzilla and Add Some Monster Mayhem to Your Day

4 hours ago

Godzilla lived up to big expectations assuming you expected it to be a true Godzilla movie.  There wasn't much in the way of interesting human characters or deep personal drama.  It was about giant monsters fighting, and director Gareth Edwards handled it wonderfully.  It will be four years until we get the sequel, but with the promise of Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah, I'm hoping it will be worth the wait.  In the meantime, we can enjoy the excellent final battle from this year's movie.  I won't lie: It's not quite as powerful when viewed on a computer monitor, but it's still entertaining.  Atomic breath is always entertaining. Hit the jump to check out the final battle from Godzilla, and click here to pre-order the film on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, or DVD.  The film will be released for home entertainment on September 16th. Via Cbm.

Evangeline Lilly Shows Off Her Hope Van Dyne Look for Ant-man

5 hours ago

You know all that Ant-Man news that flooded the web prior to filming courtesy of the director shuffle?  Even though the film is finally in production, based on these first few days, it doesn't look as though the Ant-Man updates will slow down anytime soon. Three days ago director Peyton Reed tweeted that filming had finally begun, two days ago we got our very first official still of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, yesterday it was those unofficial images and video, and now today, we’ve got even more Ant-Man material to share – some Instagram photos from Evangeline Lilly rocking her new Hope Van Dyne hairstyle.  Hit the jump to check them out.  Ant-Man also stars Michael DouglasCorey StollBobby CannavaleMichael PeñaJudy Greer, T.I. and John Slattery, and is due to hit theaters on July 17, 2015.

Nicolas Cage Attempts British Accent in Outcast Trailer; Hayden Christensen Co-Stars

5 hours ago

In Nicolas Cage's long, glorious, and bizarre filmography, Outcast could be more than a minor curiosity.  The directorial debut of Nick Powell (stunt coordinator on Resident Evil: Retribution), Outcast takes place during the Crusades, and Cage plays Gallain, a rebellious outlaw who teams up with Arken (Hayden Christensen, who, to my surprise, is still in the acting business), a young man looking for redemption by protecting the rightful heir to the Chinese throne.  If you needed more proof of China's growing power in the global film market, look to Outcast.  First Cage; tomorrow: The World.  But in the meantime, they only have Cage, or, more specifically, Cage trying to do a British accent, which is about as wonderful as you'd expect. Hit the jump to check out the Outcast trailer.  The film will be released on February 27, 2015, and also stars Yifei Liu, Fernando Chien, Andy On, and Byron Lawson. »

Director Patrick Osborne Talks Feast, the Process of Pitching, Developing, and Producing a Short Film at Disney, Working with John Lasseter, and More

13 hours ago

The upcoming animated short film Feast, which will run in theaters with Big Hero 6, opening on November 7th, is the story of one man’s life, as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed through the meals that they share.  It’s a beautiful, funny, heart-warming story about love. During a recent presentation and screening at Walt Disney Animation Studios, to showcase their latest short, director Patrick Osborne talked about how quickly Feast went from pitch to finished product, all with the guidance and support of John Lasseter.  During the interview, he discussed where this idea came from, making this as part of Disney’s shorts program, what the pitch process is like, creating the look of the food, developing a short versus a feature, what the lighting process is like, the must-have foods that he wanted to include, why he chose to »

A Second Chance Clips and Images Featuring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Go Deeper Into the Film’s Criminal Underworld

14 hours ago

One of the feature Tiff films that I’m most looking forward to seeing is Love is All You Need director Susanne Bier’s thriller A Second Chance.  Last month we posted the trailer which was gripping, tense and dour (in a good way).  As I said then, this project looks like a little bit of a twist on Gone Baby Gone (also a good thing) in that it explores thematic elements that could be seen as a counterpoint to that film.  Now we have a series of five clips, totaling eight minutes of the film, that flesh about the characters a bit. The film was written by frequent Bier collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen and stars Jamie Lannister himself,  Nikolaj Coster-WaldauUlrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen also appear.  Hit the jump to check out the A Second Chance clips.  We also have new images from the film. »

Nicole Holofcener to Write and Direct The Land Of Steady Habits

19 hours ago

It appears that filmmaker Nicole Holofcener has settled on her next feature.  Coming off the success of the sweet and endearing Enough Said, Holofcener will be turning her attention to an adaptation of Ted Thompson’s novel The Land of Steady Habits for Fox Searchlight.  Thompson broke the news on his blog (via The Playlist), saying the Please Give filmmaker will write and direct the story of a man in his early 60s who abandons his career and family in Connecticut for a new condo and a new life, only to realize that the world he rejected just might be the one he needs.  This sounds right up Holofcener’s alley, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing what kind of cast she puts together. There’s no word on how soon Fox Searchlight plans to start production, but it sure looks like this could be Holofcener’s next film. »
