Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford & More Get Armed In New Pics From 'The Expendables 3'

21 minutes ago

Well, here's a movie that won't be playing Cannes or coming anywhere near it: "The Expendables 3." It's not high art, and these things are barely movies at all, but they do have explosions and old dudes causing those explosions and that's all some folks need. And so, a batch of new pics from the action sequel are here. Yep, there's Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Arnold Schwarzenegger all doing their thing and looking tough and getting ready to see say some eye-rolling dialogue. In case you actually care, the plot revolves around a former member of the Expendables (played by Gibson) who has become a ruthless arms dealer who was left for dead.... but surprise, he's still alive. So everyone bands together to take him out on the cheap sets of Bulgarian film studios. "The Expendables 3" opens on August 15th. »

Review: Disneynature's Entertaining, Beautifully Shot 'Bears,' Narrated By John C. Reilly

45 minutes ago

It seems fitting that Disney, a studio that has had such a solidly illustrious history with anthropomorphic bears (between Winnie the Pooh, the Country Bears at Disneyland and Br'er Bear from "Song of the South," all the way up to the magical bears that populated Pixar's Oscar-winning "Brave"), would circle back and focus an entire film on the actual animals. This year's Disneynature documentary, "Bears," features honest-to-goodness Alaskan bears, the kind that wake up from a snowy den and spend all year gathering food for the next winter. What's amazing about the documentary, though, is that it's oftentimes just as engaging as the Disney bears that play in jug bands or crave ooey-gooey honey.Every Disneynature movie has a loose kind of narrative, usually about a familial unit and some kind of adverse condition. But "Bears" is better suited to a traditional narrative than most, given that the bears' life »

Sony Reportedly Aiming For $1 Billion Worldwide Box Office For 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

1 hour ago

After Marvel's "The Avengers" made a billion dollars, and became the third highest grossing movie of all time, rival studios freaked. And so, they began to plot their own massive, cinematic comic universes while also spending big money on their properties, hoping to join Marvel in the billion dollar club. Ambitious goals, but can everyone do it? We'll soon see as Variety reports that, according to their sources, Sony honcho Amy Pascal has set a target of $1 billion worldwide for "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." Well, yeah, probably. Given that the studio is going hard on this franchise, with "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" already slotted for 2016, and with "Sinister Six" and "Venom" films already in development, of course they want this to be huge. But is it even realistic? One has to look at the numbers to see if they're dreaming or if its realistic. The first "The Amazing Spider-Man" wasn't the kind of reboot Sony likely wanted. »

Tribeca Exclusive: Clip From Horror 'Preservation' Takes Cover In A Cabin

1 hour ago

The Tribeca Film Festival is in full swing, which means an array of quality dramas will be on display for audiences. But sometimes, you just want to feel you pulse quicken and have a good old fashioned thrill, and that's what Christopher Denham ("Home Movie") is hoping to provide with his sophomore directorial effort, "Preservation." Starring Pablo Schreiber ("Orange is the New Black"), Aaron Staton ("Mad Men"), and Wrenn Schmidt ("Boardwalk Empire"), the story follows brothers Sean and Mike Neary, along with Mike’s wife Wit, who head out on a hunting trip in the woods. But when all of their gear is stolen, they immediately turn on each other deep within this nature preserve, and it's a tale of the hunter and hunted that takes on some new twists. And in this exclusive clip, we see the wounded Mike and Wit take cover in a ranger station, and make an ambitious plan. »

New Pics From Cannes-Selected 'Foxcatcher' With Steve Carell & Channing Tatum And 'Sils Maria' With Kristen Stewart

2 hours ago

Cannes you believe it? (Sorry, we're already tired from being up early to cover this.) Thierry Fremaux and co. unveiled the slate for this years Cannes Film Festival (with a couple more titles to come), and yes, that means more images from the films in competition. First up is a new look at Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher."

Tribeca Exclusive: Listen To "Break Up" From Tony Morales' Score For Joss Whedon-Penned 'In Your Eyes'

2 hours ago

You would think with all things Marvel on his plate, Joss Whedon wouldn't have time for much else, but you'd be wrong. Last year he dropped the indie Shakespearean tale "Much Ado About Nothing," and now he's headed into the Tribeca Film Festival as the writer and executive producer of the metaphysical romance "In Your Eyes." And today we have a little treat for you from the film. Produced by Kai Cole and Michael Roiff and directed by Brin Hill, the film stars Zoe Kazan, Michael Stahl-David, Nikki Reed, Mark Feuerstein, Steve Harris and Jennifer Grey in the tale that follows a sheltered East Coast housewife and an ex-con and waitress in New Mexico who all connect in ways they couldn't imagine. Weaving the movie together is composer Tony Morales ("Hatfields & McCoys," "The Bag Man"), and below you can listen to his evocative "Break Up" from the soundtrack, helping to power this unique film. »

‘Mrs. Doubtfire’ Sequel Is In The Works, Robin Williams & Chris Columbus Will Return

3 hours ago

Wait, didn’t Mrs. Doubtfire die in a fire? True story: I’ve never seen “Mrs. Doubtfire,” the 1993 comedy about a divorced actor so psychotic and unhinged he disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. And I’d rather take a chainsaw to my scrotum than ever see it, frankly (the painful bits I’ve seen on TV over the years were enough, thank you very much). Well, anyhow, twenty years after the fact, Fox 2000 is developing a sequel because evidently actor Robin Williams and director Chris Columbus (both of whom are back for the sequel) need to remortgage their summer homes (or something). David Berenbaum, who penned “Elf,” “Haunted Mansion”and “The Spiderwick Chronicles,” will write the screenplay. So, why a sequel other than the fact that everyone likes money? Well, Williams' career has been rather cool »

New Images From Cannes Competitors Xavier Dolan's 'Mommy,' Mike Leigh's 'Mr. Turner' & Ken Loach's 'Jimmy's Hall'

3 hours ago

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup is here, so now we can spend the next month trying to get as much intel on the movies as possible before they screen for critics and cinephiles on the Croisette. And of course, that means lots of images are here, so let's dive into three playing in Competition. First up is Xavier Dolan's "Mommy," with the wunderkind filmmaker finally landing in Competition with his fifth feature. And like the wicked "Tom At The Farm," it looks like the director is taking another left turn into new territory. Here's the official synopsis: A widowed single mother, raising her violent son alone, finds new hope when a mysterious neighbour, a woman, inserts herself into the mother and son's household, providing the mother with needed support. Mike Leigh returns to Cannes with this next effort, the art world biopic on painter J.M.W. Turner, titled rather appropriately, »

New Pics From Cannes Contenders 'Maps To The Stars' & 'The Homesman'

4 hours ago

In case you just woke up or are still on your morning cup of coffee, the Cannes Film Festival lineup was unveiled this morning, and the promo materials are pouring in. And among them are new pics from two Competition titles that will be generation lots of heat. First up is David Cronenberg's "Maps To The Stars," from which we've already seen two trailers (here and here), and now comes a couple fresh images from the movie starring Robert PattinsonJohn CusackJulianne MooreMia WasikowskaOlivia Williams and Sarah Gadon. Here's the official synopsis: Led by the loathsome yet funny and touching child-star Benjie, we witness the convoluted world of shallow, selfish celebrities and their minions, all of whom are about to be manipulated and destroyed by the young woman who literally represents the fruit of their twisted machinations, Agatha, Benjie’s tormented, apparently psychotic sister. As much as it is a sharp, »

Watch: Everything Burns In Moody New Trailer For Cannes-Bound ‘The Rover’ With Guy Pearce & Robert Pattinson

4 hours ago

Fear The Man With Nothing Left To Lose. So goes the tagline of David Michod's "The Rover" starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, and with the film now headed to Cannes, A24 has dropped a new trailer and a couple of posters for the thriller. And yes, it looks pretty damn good. Already showcasing his skill at capturing men pushed to the brink in "Animal Kingdom," Michod's latest takes it even further. Set ten years after the collapse of society, with the rule of law now tossed out the window, the story kicks off when Rey (Pattinson) is carjacked and left for dead, only to fall into an partnership with loner Eric (Pearce), who helps him track the down the gang of thieves. And the story, conceived by Michod and Joel Edgerton, looks like one packed with a grim sense of place and a palpable atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic world. »

Watch: First Trailer For Atom Egoyan's 'The Captive' Starring Ryan Reynolds Headed To Cannes

5 hours ago

Are we possibly looking at a career rebound for Ryan Reynolds? Kicking off the year with good notices for the Sundance oddball comedy "The Voices," the actor will be packing his bags shortly for Cannes where Atom Egoyan's "The Captive" will premiere. And now the first trailer has arrived. To be honest, Egoyan's output of late has been patchy at best (his previous effort, "The Devil's Knot," is a bit of a misfire) but we're compelled by this one. Co-starring Scott SpeedmanMireille EnosRosario DawsonKevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, the film rides a "Prisoners"-esque vibe—set along in a longer timeline—the psychological thriller examines how the kidnapping of a man’s young daughter destroys the relationships among those involved. As the film teases out the complex threads weaving together the victim, her family, the predators and the investigators, the mystery is revealed as »

Watch: First Trailer For Dardennes Cannes Entry ‘Two Days, One Night' Starring Marion Cotillard

5 hours ago

Another Cannes Film Festival is upon us, and festival mainstays Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's are returning in 2014 with "Two Days, One Night." And if you know your French, the first trailer for the film here. And as per usual, the sibling directors are serving up what looks to be another powerful, slice of life tale. Marion CotillardFabrizio Rongione and Olivier Gourmet co-star in the film that follows a young woman who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues they must give up their bonuses in order for her to keep her job. And quite frankly, this looks like a helluva showcase for Cotillard, and it seems the Dardennes are on the form we always expect from the directors — so yeah, this is one to keep an eye on at Cannes. Sundance Selects has the U.S. rights for the movie, but no release date has been set yet. »

'Foxcatcher,' 'Map To The Stars,' 'The Rover,' 'The Search' And New Jean-Luc Godard Lead Cannes 2014 Line-Up

6 hours ago

God bless us, every one! It's April 17th, which means it's the cinephile's version of Christmas, because today sees the announcement of the line-up for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, still the biggest and most prestigious international fest in the calendar. Rumors have been flying for a few weeks now, and we've known for a while that the festival would open with Nicole Kidman-starrer "Grace Of Monaco," in which the Oscar-winner plays legendary star-turned-princess Grace Kelly, but now the full festival line-up has been announced and it looks promising. Among the hotly-tipped movies that have been confirmed this morning are David Cronenberg's inside-Hollywood tale "Maps To The Stars" starring Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Olivia Williams and Robert Pattinson, "The Rover," "Animal Kingdom" helmer David Michod's apocalyptic follow-up, also starring Pattinson along with Guy Pearce and Scoot McNairy (which is a Midnight Screening rather than in-competition as expected »

Watch: 'The Final Member' Goes Below The Belt With Satisfying Results

18 hours ago

There are few movies this year where you'll see a man get the stars and stripes of the American flag tattooed on the head of his penis. But then again, there are few documentaries like "The Final Member," a warm look at a quirky subject that gets to the human story behind it. Meet Sigurdur Hjartarson, the founder and curator of the Icelandic Phallogical Museum, the only museum in the world dedicated to the penis. Receiving a bull penis as a gag gift in the '70s, something clicked in Sigurdur's brain and the next thing he knew, he was collecting specimens from any animal he could get his hands on, slowly filling his house with jars of penises of all shapes and sizes, from nearly every creature that walks, swims or flies that you can think of. With his home quickly becoming cluttered, his understanding family joked that he should he open a museum, »

Watch: Chilling First Trailer For Eli Roth's 'The Green Inferno'

19 hours ago

Eli Roth has taken viewers to some strange, depraved places in his career thus far, and this time, deep in the jungle, he finds even more horror in his upcoming "The Green Inferno." And the first trailer for the film is here to give you a taste of what's coming. Featuring Lorenza IzzoAriel LevyDaryl Sabara and Kirby Bliss Blanton, the film follows a bunch of earnest, New York City students who travel to the Amazon to try to help a dying native tribe. But soon they are taken hostage and shit gets very real. But is it any good? Our man at Tiff last year was less than impressed, saying Roth's latest is "more juvenile, less polished and feels less labored over" than his previous films. "The Green Inferno" opens on September 5th. Watch below. »

Watch: 30 Minute Talk With Director Richard Ayoade About Making 'The Double,' Working Avi Korine & More

19 hours ago

In just under a month, Richard Ayoade's "The Double" will take you into a retro-future-punk world where there are two Jesse Eisenberg's and yet no one manages to confuse the two. In fact, one is smooth and confident, while the other is meek and anonymous, and the actor gets great mileage out of both parts in the film that hilarious and wonderfully put together. And now you can find out how it was all done. Ayoade recently stopped by New Directors/New Films festival in New York City, and spent thirty minutes following the screening of the film talking about the ins and outs of his work. The self-effacing filmmaker discussed working with Avi Korine on the screenplay, adapting the novella by Fyodor Dostoevsky, transitioning from his main gig as a comedy actor to his more serious turn as a director and so much more. Thoughtful and soft-spoken, »

Watch: 10-Minute Featurette Goes Behind Royal Wedding On 'Game Of Thrones' Plus Clips, Tribute & More

21 hours ago

Spoilers Ahead. Ding dong, the witch king is dead. Last Sunday's episode of "Game Of Thrones" (recap here) turned everything on its head by killing off Joffrey, one of the most shocking moments the show has seen since, well, The Red Wedding. It was so surprising in fact, that HBO waited until mid-week to drop their usual array of behind-the-scenes material for the episode. They don't disappoint. The one you'll want to start with is the 10-minute "Inside The Episode,"whose title should be self-explanatory. After that, the "Anatomy Of The Scene" goes behind the scenes of the wedding itself. And then there's even more, including author George R.R. Martin's take on Cersei's accusation that Tyrion poisoned Joffrey, a tribute to the late king, a clip and more. It's a lot of stuff, which should get folks talking even more. Tune in this Sunday to see what happens next. »

Tribeca Exclusive: Dancing Gets Crispy In Clip From Documentary 'Ballet 422'

21 hours ago

While Darren Aronofsky provided audiences with a nightmarish vision of what it means to be dancer in "Black Swan," in real life, ballet is a mix of collaboration, dedication and lots of sweat. And viewers will see all of that come together in the documentary "Ballet 422," premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival. Directed by Jody Lee Lipes (who was the Dp on Playlist fave "Martha Marcy May Marlene"), the film follows up-and-coming choreographer Justin Peck — from the first rehearsal to world premiere — as he collaborates with musicians, lighting designers, costume designers and his fellow dancers to create the latest New York City Ballet production. And as you'll see in this exclusive clip, even in the rehearsal process, early signs of magic can be found. "Ballet 422" premieres at Tribeca on Saturday, April 19th at 9 Pm at Sva Theatre 1.

The 10 Best Episodes Of 'Mad Men'

22 hours ago

It might not be the pop culture phenomenon that it once was (the grabbier, faster likes of “True Detective” and “Game Of Thrones” having surpassed it at the nation’s watercoolers), but last Sunday saw the return of “Mad Men,” and if the seventh season premiere was anything to go by, it’s as good as it ever was. Matthew Weiner’s show, about the lives of the employees of a Madison Avenue ad agency in the 1960s (and in particular, the alienated, self-reinventing golden boy Don Draper, played to star-making effect by Jon Hamm, and Elisabeth Moss’s secretary-turned-high-flyer Peggy Olsen) has been a critical favorite since it launched in 2007 and almost singlehandedly made AMC a serious home for prestige drama (paving the way for network-mates “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” in the process). To this writer’s mind, it’s as good a show as anything that »
