‘Wonder Woman’ And ‘Aquaman’ Get Big Sneaks As ‘Justice League’ Comes To CinemaCon

3 hours ago

Las Vegas – It’s been a long time since Marvel Studios and Disney got theater owners excited with a glimpse of new footage for their films let alone trekked some of their big stars to Sin City to walk the CinemaCon stage. Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are happily not following that model.  During Warner Bros.’ almost two hour presentation the studio dedicated the final act to its fledgling superhero universe unveiling complete scenes from this summer’s “Wonder Woman,” a concept art trailer for 2018’s “Aquaman” and some new shots thrown into an extended trailer for “Justice League,” arriving at a cineplex near you this Thanksgiving.

New ‘Beguiled’ Trailer And Long Distance Judi Dench Highlights Focus Features CinemaCon Presentation

7 hours ago

Las Vegas – Judi Dench couldn’t attend Focus Features presentation to discuss her new film “Victoria and Abdul,” but she still sent a taped message that was quintessentially Dench.

“I’m sorry to not be there in Las Vegas as I hear Britney Spears is in town,” Dench deadpanned.  Cue the laughter from the attendees looking for something to smile about.

The Oscar-winner introduced what appeared to be an extended trailer for Stephen Frears new drama, a film that has her reprising the role of Queen Victoria she first played in 1997’s “Mrs Brown.” This follow up chronicles the 19th Century monarch towards the end of her life when she developed a friendship with an Indian Muslim (Ali Fazal).

Academy Allows PricewaterhouseCoopers To Hold Envelopes Again After Best Picture Oscar Fiasco

9 hours ago

What does it take to get fired from the Oscars? Apparently, you can mix up the envelopes for Best Picture, cause huge embarrassment not only for presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, but for the entire Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Oscar show as a whole, and you’ll still be welcomed back.

THR reports that accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers will be back for the Oscars next year, despite a major breach of protocol and a laissez faire attitude to the whole process that led to “La La Land” being accidentally announced as the winner for Best Picture, before a very confused correction was made, and “Moonlight” took home the honor.

Amazon Removing Indie Horror Films With Extreme Content From Streaming Service

10 hours ago

Fans of indie horror films beware, Amazon might just start limiting what movies you have access to with your Prime membership. According to a report from Blumhouse, after speaking with a variety of indie horror filmmakers, Amazon has notified creators of “extreme” indie horror films that their works will not be offered as “Included with Prime” any longer, effective March 1st.

Blumhouse has been in contact with numerous indie horror directors who received emails stating that Amazon “will no longer allow titles containing persistent or graphic sexual or violent acts, gratuitous nudity and/or erotic themes (‘adult content’) to be offered as ‘Included with Prime’ or ‘Free with Pre-Roll Ad.'” This is in an effort to “improve the Amazon Video customer experience.” Basically, if Amazon deems a film to be “gratuitous” or containing “erotic themes,” then filmmakers can either have it removed from the service or make cuts to scenes that are flagged. »

Richard Kelly Teases Re-Release Of “Expanded” ‘Southland Tales’

11 hours ago

Among the many reasons behind the infamy of Richard Kelly‘s post-apocalyptic misfire “Southland Tales,” the brutal reception it received at Cannes paved the way. The filmmaker, dubbed the next hot thing following “Donnie Darko,” brought his ambitious followup to the Croisette, where it played in Competition and was promptly torn to shreds by critics. But here’s one thing you might not know — the movie wasn’t finished.

Vin Diesel Says Paul Walker Is “Looking Over Us” As ‘Fate Of The Furious’ Screens At CinemaCon

11 hours ago

Las Vegas — Universal Pictures “surprised” CinemaCon attendees with the first screening of “The Fate Of The Furious” this morning as they capped off what was a somewhat tame presentation to the theater owners in attendance. The studio had a ton of stars on hand (more on that in a minute), but gave a major spotlight to Vin Diesel, who has had a love affair with the convention for years.

‘Ghost In The Shell’ Gets Mixed Marks From Critics

11 hours ago

In the lead-up to this week’s release of “Ghost In The Shell” starring Scarlett Johansson, Paramount Pictures hasn’t been able to pivot the conversation away from the film’s casting and criticisms of white-washing the anime-based source material. Whether or not those issues will affect ticket sales remains to be seen, but as for the movie itself, the big-budget remake is drawing mixed notices from critics.

‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Is A Return To Former Glory At CinemaCon

12 hours ago

CinemaCon is essentially four days straight of advertising. The event is primarily focused on the studios getting cinema owners excited about their upcoming slate of movies, and this means nearly every square inch of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas is covered in promotional material, right down to the hotel key cards. The presentations themselves are star-studded affairs, featuring plenty of advance footage being shown. However, it’s not often that a studio is brave enough to show an entire film, but Disney were feeling ballsy, and unspooled “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” for attendees.

Our smorgasbord of 1990s nostalgia, two weeks of Top 10 lists for every year in the decade, is beginning to reach its end, but we pick up today with 1997. It was the year of the start of the second Clinton term, the first cloned animal with Dolly the sheep, the arrival of the Hale-Bopp comet (and the resulting suicide of the Heaven’s Gate cult), the murder of Gianni Versace, and the election of Tony Blair in the UK.

Pennywise Returns In First Trailer For Stephen King’s ‘It’

14 hours ago

The catalog of Stephen King is filled with tales of terror, but few have left the kind of impression that “It” has. The massive tome is one of the author’s fan favorites, and has already been adapted into a TV miniseries. But now it’s headed to the big screen, and the question is if the feature film will be packing the same amount of scares. Well, according to the director, you might want to wear a diaper, because he’s not going to hide the killer clown at the heart of the story.

Hulu Mixes ‘Stranger Things’ & ‘Black Mirror’ In Trailer For Anthology Series ‘Dimension 404’

14 hours ago

It seems that anthology series are making something of a comeback recently, with FX running multiple season long anthologies from “Fargo” to “American Crime Story” to “Feud” and beyond. Hulu’s new show, however, seems to be following Netflix’s “Black Mirror” (with a dash of “Stranger Things“) with their own sci-fi fantasy anthology series “Dimension 404.” Telling different stories about futuristic technological advances, each episode is a self contained story with Mark Hamill bridging the episodes by serving as the series narrator.

Sony‘s Spider-Man gameplan keeps getting odder by the day. First, there’s the decision to launch a superhero universe with classic villain “Venom,” except it won’t be tied to the forthcoming “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” Indeed, the summer blockbuster is the rare union of three studios — Sony, Disney, and Marvel — who’ve decided to share a very valuable property between them.

17 hours ago

This summer, Luc Besson returns to blockbuster sci-fi with “Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets.” The film brings with it a pretty impressive cast with Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, and more, but many might be asking how the director could possibly top the wonderfully, over-the-top delight of “The Fifth Element.” Well, according to DeHaan, ‘Valerian’ takes Besson’s aesthetic to the next level.

18 hours ago

We’re a couple of weeks away from the organizers at Cannes unveiling their full slate, and we’re still yet to hear about the opening film, but for now they’re tiding us over with this terrific poster for the 70th edition of the festival.

Claudia Cardinale continues the recent tradition of movie icons gracing the one-sheets for the fest, with the actress dancing in this lovely promo. Cardinale has spent plenty of time on the Croisette, with Valerio Zurlini’s “Girl With A Suitcase,” Mauro Bolognini’s “La Viaccia,” Luchino Visconti‘s “The Leopard,” Federico Fellini’s “8 1/2,” Liliana Cavani’s “La Pelle,” Werner Herzog’s “Fitzcarraldo,” Marco Bellocchio’s “Henry IV,” Diane Kurys’ “A Man In Love,” and Claude Lelouch’s “And Now… Ladies And Gentlemen” all landing at Cannes.

Louis Garrel Is Jean-Luc Godard In First Teaser For Michel Hazanavicius’ ‘Redoubtable’

18 hours ago

The speculation around which movies will hit the Cannes Film Festival continues to swirl, but one picture almost everyone agrees will land on the Croisette is Michel Hazanavicius‘ “Redoubtable.” The director has experienced both dizzying highs (“The Artist“) and tremendous lows (“The Search“) at the festival, but with this new project taking on the life of French cinema treasure Jean-Luc Godard, it’s almost inconceivable to think the movie might premiere elsewhere.
