Fargo Recap: “The Rooster Prince”

10 hours ago

The chaos and violence that defined the first hour of Fargo are starting to have some ramifications.  In its second hour, "The Rooster Prince" began to illustrate what a mad and connected world of violence Bemidji is, something that Molly is starting to piece together (thankfully, because the Molly of the premiere would have never gotten there).  But Bemidji is a small town, and personal alliances are standing in the way of justice.  Hit the jump for why you should never open and sniff a jar filled with pee. R.I.P. Verne last week, but his death apparently imbued Molly with the detecting sense she needs to hone in on the case(s) at hand.  She believes that the murders at the Nygaard house are connected to the murder of Sam Hess, as well as the car/body/underwear found out in the snow.  Her boss Bill, on the other hand, »

10 hours ago

The Other Woman is a romantic comedy with a refreshing twist centering on three women (Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton) who discover they’ve all been three-timed by the same lying, cheating Sob (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).  Their realization leads to an unlikely friendship as they team up to help each other get their lives back on track and teach him a lesson he’ll never forget.  Opening April 25th, the female-driven revenge comedy directed by Nick Cassavetes from a screenplay by Melissa Stack also stars Taylor Kinney and Don Johnson.

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: “The Only Light in the Darkness”

11 hours ago

Welcome back, True Believers!  Last week’s episode gave us an in-depth look at Agent Garrett’s, aka Bill Paxton’s, Hydra.  Fun was had by all as the charismatic team took over a S.H.I.E.L.D. installation and rallied behind the idea that the once nearly omnipresent agency was unraveling at the seams.  Meanwhile, the Agents tried to pick up the pieces and were met by Agent Koenig, aka Patton Oswalt, in a secret base set up by Nick Fury.  On tonight’s episode, the often mentioned “Cellist” (love interest of Coulson originally brought up in the Avengers movie) makes an appearance, played by Amy Acker.  Also, another villain from the funny books makes his Marvel “movie-verse” premiere. Hit the jump for our recap of “The Only Light in the Darkness." We start our episode off with what I consider to be the episode's weakest and strongest parts, »

Jon Turteltaub to Direct It’S A Small World for Disney; Peeps Candy Rights Optioned for Film and TV

12 hours ago

Fifty years ago, Disney's It's a Small World debuted in its earliest iteration at the 1964 New York World's Fair.  Now, it's set to become a feature film with Jon Turteltaub at the helm.  If it's anything like the attraction itself, audience members will be buckled into their seats for two hours while the world's children sing a song on loop until it drills itself into your skull for all eternity.  Perhaps Jared Stern's pitch and eventual script will take a different path than that.  Stern, Turteltaub, and Dan Lin will act as producers on the Disney film, and though it will take a bit of time to come to fruition, it's being eyed as a possible franchise.  (Via Deadline) For an even more ridiculous adaptation story, hit the jump to learn how Adam Rifkin plans to adapt the Easter candy, Peeps. With Easter having just wrapped up, it's possible »

Doug Liman in Talks to Direct Sci-Fi Children’s Book Adaptation Railhead for Warner Bros.

14 hours ago

Doug Liman’s schedule is becoming quite crowded.  The Mr. and Mrs. Smith filmmaker most recently completed the upcoming sci-fi pic Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise, and now Warner Bros. is looking to stay in business with Liman as Heat Vision reports that he is currently in negotiations to direct an adaptation of Railhead, an upcoming book by author Philip ReeveWarner Bros. recently acquired the novel, which takes place in a futuristic society in which trains run through space portals.  The crux of the story revolves around a petty thief who is hired to steal an object that turns out to be much more powerful that he was led to believe. The book doesn’t hit shelves until Fall 2015, but WB has gotten a jump on the material.  Next up for Liman, though, is the video game adaptation Splinter Cell, which has Tom Hardy set to star.  That »

First Crossbones Trailer Featuring John Malkovich as the Dread Pirate Blackbeard

14 hours ago

The bald head and white beard of John Malkovich in the above image doesn't exactly scream "the dread pirate Blackbeard," but that's exactly the role he'll take on in the new NBC series, Crossbones.  For fans of Malkovich's quirks and particular brand of humor, this first trailer should be a delight as it shows the veteran chewing scenery with zeal.  For those who aren't quite as fond of Malkovich (myself included), then this first look acts as more of a deterrent than an enticement.  That's a shame, since the rest of the cast - which includes Richard Coyle, Tracy Ifeachor, and Yasmine Al Massri - appears to turn in a worth-watching performance. Hit the jump to watch the first trailer for NBC's Crossbones, which premieres Friday, May 30th at 10/9c. Check out the first Crossbones trailer, followed by the series' synopsis: Synopsis: It's 1715 on the Bahamian island of Santa Campana, »

Director Steven Quale Talks Into The Storm, Mixing Big Visual Effects with the Grounded Human Element, and More at WonderCon

14 hours ago

Over the weekend, shortly before Into the Storm director Steven Quale hit the WonderCon stage to talk about his movie, I landed a few minutes with him backstage on the red carpet.  He talked about how the film mixes big visual effects with a grounded human element, how real-life tornadic events influenced what they decided to portray, if the science in the movie is real, how they never considered making it in 3D, how the film was shot, upcoming projects, and more.  Hit the jump to watch and click here to read our recap of the Into the Storm WonderCon panel.  The film stars Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Max Deacon, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Arlen Escarpeta, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle DavisJon Reep, and Scott Lawrence.

Jessica Chastain to Play Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik’s Blonde

15 hours ago

Jessica Chastain may soon be adding “biopic” to her already impressive resume, though not in the traditional sense of the word.  Per The Wrap, the actress is near a deal to play Marilyn Monroe in The Assassination of Jesse James director Andrew Dominik’s next film Blonde.  Though Naomi Watts had previously been attached to play the famous leading lady in the pic, she fell off the project some time ago.  The film is not your traditional “cradle-to-grave” story, as Dominik previously described it as a “sprawling, emotional nightmare fairy-tale type movie” and it is based on author Joyce Carol Oates’ historical novel of the same name.  Hit the jump for more on this exciting prospect. Dominik's frequent collaborator Brad Pitt has been onboard to produce Blonde for some time now, and The Wrap notes that the actor was instrumental in convincing Chastain to sign on.  Obviously a figure like »

Jerry Bruckheimer Talks Deliver Us From Evil, the Summer Release Date, Bad Boys 3, National Treasure 3, Top Gun 2, and More at WonderCon

16 hours ago

From filmmaker Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), Deliver Us From Evil tells the story of the real-life series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes that police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) began investigating in New York.  As frightening events occur around the city, Sarchie teams up with an unconventional priest (Édgar Ramírez) who is schooled in the rituals of exorcism. While at WonderCon to promote the film’s July 2nd theatrical release, producer Jerry Bruckheimer spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about being attracted to the procedural aspect of this story, why he responded to the true story of the book when he bought it 10 years ago, how even though the film tested very high, it’s all about the second weekend of release for him, how important the casting was, and what Scott Derrickson brings to this genre.  He also talked about what it will take »

Robert Downey Jr. Shares First Official Image from the Set of Avengers: Age Of Ultron

16 hours ago

The first Avengers: Age of Ultron image has now landed online…officially.  Yes, onlookers previously snapped shots of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen filming an action sequence from the Marvel sequel a few weeks ago, and we’ve recently seen a few videos featuring Captain America, but today the first official image from the set has arrived courtesy of the one and only Robert Downey Jr.  The actor started up a Twitter account recently, and today he took the opportunity to provide a “sneak peek” at Avengers: Age of Ultron with a snapshot that also includes executive producer Jeremy Latcham.  There’s not really much to see, as both are wearing reflective vests likely due to the hazardous nature of the scene that was being filmed, but it serves as a fun “heads up” that the actor might be regularly sharing images from the Avengers 2 set. Hit the jump to check out the set image. »

Foxcatcher Set for November 14th Release; Tina Fey/Amy Poehler Comedy The Nest Faces Star Wars on December 18, 2015

17 hours ago

Release dates have been announced for two very promising projects.  First up, Moneyball director Bennett Miller’s new drama Foxcatcher will finally arrive in theaters on November 14th of this year.  The pic was originally slated for release last fall, before Sony Pictures Classics pushed it to 2014 in order to get out of the incredibly competitive awards season pile-up.  The film tells the true story of Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo), and their relationship with eccentric millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell). Based on the incredible first trailer, this looks to be a serious awards contender, and its November release date puts it in prime position to take advantage of the buzz.  The pic will square off against Dumb and Dumber To and the WWII actioner Fury on its date, but again, this is all about riding the buzz through the December awards voting period. »

Disney Chairman Alan Horn Says the Star Wars Films Will Have Budgets in the $175 Million to $200 Million Range

18 hours ago

Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn spoke a bit this morning about the highly anticipated sequel Star Wars: Episode VII, but his comments were essentially confirming things we already know: the cast isn’t 100% set yet, principal photography hasn’t begun, George Lucas is consulting, and future Star Wars films could return to the May release date strategy.  However, he also revealed a fascinating nugget with regards to the budgets of the new Star Wars movies.  One might think that a movie as big as Episode VII would have a budget of epic proportions, but the number that Horn quoted is actually pretty in line with other recent tentpole films.  More after the jump. While speaking at Loyola (via Variety's Marc Graser), Horn revealed that the budgets for the new Star Wars films will be “around $175 million to $200 million.”  Horn is speaking not only about Episode VII, but also Episode »

First Trailer for 1980s Comedy Ping Pong Summer Starring Susan Sarandon and Lea Thompson

18 hours ago

Gravitas Ventures has released the first Ping Pong Summer trailer for writer/director Michael Tully’s 1980s-set indie comedy.  The film takes place during the summer of 1985 and revolves around a shy 13-year-old kid (Marcello Conte) who, while on family vacation in Ocean City, strikes up new friendships, gets a crush, and becomes embroiled in the local ping pong scene.  The pic looks to be a pretty funny take on the coming-of-age story, and it absolutely nails the ‘80s aesthetic without coming off as cliché or contrived.  It actually feels a tad reminiscent of The Way, Way Back, and the ensemble cast is definitely promising. Hit the jump to watch the Ping Pong Summer trailer.  The film also stars Susan Sarandon, Amy Sedaris, Lea Thompson, John Hannah, and Judah FriedlanderPing Pong Summer will be released in theaters and VOD on June 6th.

Chinese Zodiac Blu-ray Review

19 hours ago

It's hard to know how to take Jackie Chan these days. The iconic action star turned 60 earlier this month, and his mileage is definitely showing. Movies like Chinese Zodiac appear to take that into account, using a lot of tricks and distractions to hide the fact that he simply can't perform the eye-popping stunts that helped make him a household name. Recent films have tried to break him out of that mold completely, and this one seems to recognize the futility of the endeavor. Unfortunately, it can't find a viable alternative, so it gussies up a scenario that the younger Chan would have eaten for breakfast. This time, too many cracks are showing. Hit the jump for my full Chinese Zodiac Blu-ray review. Chinese Zodiac also betrays a curious anti-Western bias in its scenario, about 12 statues plundered by imperialist occupiers over a century ago and now held by sinister white men whom Jackie must pummel. »

Roberto Orci Lobbying to Direct Star Trek 3 as Film Partnership with Alex Kurtzman Ends

19 hours ago

For better or worse, the writing duo of Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman has been responsible for some of the biggest franchise hits of the past decade.  Orci and Kurtzman penned the scripts for the first two Transformers films, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Mission: Impossible III, and they were recently brought into the Spider-Man franchise as the scribes behind The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 3.  However, it appears that the two have decided to part ways in the feature world as they have their eyes on making the move to director—separately. Kurtzman already has one feature under his belt as director, the 2012 dramedy People Like Us, but Orci is thinking big for his directorial debut as he is currently vying to take over for J.J. Abrams on Star Trek 3.  More after the jump. Variety reports that Orci and Kurtzman are parting ways in the film world, »

Total Recall Director Len Wiseman to Helm Sci-Fi Thriller Black Chapter

19 hours ago

Filmmaker Len Wiseman looks to be zeroing in on his next project.  Variety reports that the Underworld director is set to helm the supernatural thriller Black Chapter for Skydance Productions, with a script by Zak Penn (The Incredible Hulk).  The story—which was hatched by Wiseman and Penn—revolves around an FBI agent “who is drawn into a classified military program that trains its operatives to use paranormal abilities.”  Wiseman will also produce the pic, and while Skydance has a partnership with Paramount Pictures, they are not currently onboard Black Chapter. Wiseman last directed the 2012 reboot Total Recall to rather disappointing results, but his 2007 film Live Free or Die Hard was actually quite fun, so hopefully he can inject some of that levity into Black Chapter in order to keep things from delving into the bland territory of Recall.  He was recently attached to direct a reboot of The Mummy at Universal, »
