UK ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Trailer Elevates Jk Simmons’ Profile

11 hours ago

Paramount’s UK trailer for the latest Terminator iteration gives some well-deserved screen time to recent Best Supporting Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, who plays a sympathetic detective. It’s no wonder that they have featured Simmons prominently as his little film Whiplash is doing well overseas, especially in South Korea – a surprise, given the market’s penchant for tentpole actioners. Whiplash took the No. 1 spot in the all-important territory last weekend. In addition to… »

Hugh Jackman On Instagram: Role In ‘Wolverine 3′ Will Be His Last

11 hours ago

Hugh Jackman’s tenure in the role that made him a star will be coming to an end in 2017. Jackman took to Instagram this morning with a cryptic post teasing that the upcoming third standalone Wolverine film will be his final appearance as the character. While it’s strange to think of Wolverine not being portrayed by Jackman, when the still-untitled Wolverine 3 hits theaters March 3, 2017, it will mark his 17th year playing the character. That’s long time no matter how you… »

TCM Classic Film Festival: From ‘The Sound Of Music’ To Shirley MacLaine It’s Anniversary Time In Hollywood

14 hours ago

Although the loose theme of this year’s  TCM Classic Film Festival revolves around the word “History” in every possible meaning of the word, organizers could easily have wrapped it around the word “anniversary”  since so much of it seems to be tied to celebrating landmark years in the life of the movies, actors and filmmakers being honored this year. In fact the fest, which runs all weekend, opened Thursday night with a stunning restoration of the beloved 1965 musical, The… »

17 hours ago

Update, Saturday 9Am after 3:30Am post: Studio-reported Friday figures included. DreamWorks Animation has of late been a field of gloom and doom.

However, this weekend is looking a little brighter for Dwa as its sole 2015 feature toon Home, via 20th Century Fox, is leading the charge at the box… »

Helen Mirren Film ‘Woman In Gold’ Aims For New Respect After Critical Brickbats At Berlin Film Festival

27 March 2015 7:28 PM, PDT

Director Simon Curtis’ terrific new film, Woman In Gold opens April 1st and I will have a full video review of it on Monday. But the movie actually had its World Premiere February 9th at the Berlin Film Festival and critics came gunning for it. “A stodgy crusade for justice directed with minimal flair,” said one. “Heavy handed,” said another. “For a while I wasn’t quite sure why I hated Woman In Gold  so very, very much,” was another opinion.  With only seven reviews… »

‘Spectre’ Trailer: Daniel Craig’s 007 Catches Up With His Past

27 March 2015 4:45 PM, PDT

If you like your trailers suspenseful, not shaken, here’s the first full extended look at Spectre, the 24th James Bond film and fourth starring Daniel Craig. The word “anticipated” is as overused in showbiz as “superstar” is in sports, but this is the follow-up to 007’s most lucrative adventure. By far. Chances are you remember the 2012 film Skyfall, which is a) Sony’s biggest film ever, b) the UK’s highest grosser and c) No. 9 on the all-time list with $1.11B worldwide… »

‘Home’ Review: Jim Parsons & Rihanna Team For Fun Frenetic Family Ride

27 March 2015 1:18 PM, PDT

Move over, E.T.: There’s a new lovable alien on Earth and ironically he’s in a movie called Home. This new DreamWorks Animation confection is the company’s only planned release this year, and as I say in my video review above it is out-of-this-world fun for the whole family. The movie skews very, very young, but adults should be happy to go along for the ride on this road trip, though, because of the zippy dialogue in Tom J. Astle and Matt Ember’s screenplay and a fine… »

‘Leviathan’ Sci-Fi Spec By ‘Fight Club’ Scribe Jim Uhls Sells To Fox

27 March 2015 12:24 PM, PDT

Busy on another story, I just got beaten to the punch by Variety on news that Fox acquired Leviathan, a film that Ruairi Robinson will direct, based on a short film we wrote about previously. But the story was a bit incomplete. Fox bought a spec script (not a pitch) by Fight Club scribe Jim Uhls, not a pitch as our sister publication reported. I’m told the studio paid mix six against seven figures for the script. That’s pretty good right there, but the driving force… »
