Elisabeth Moss, Tom Waits, Danny Glover Join David Lowery’s ‘The Old Man & The Gun’

8 hours ago

You want to resist the urge to reduce things to a black and white view, but if you were going to look at anyone in the indie movie scene and say there were winning, well, frankly David Lowery is winning. The filmmaker behind “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” is arguably one of the best directors working today. And he’s on a total roll. The jump to the big leagues with Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” was no sell out move or film where the studio took control; Lowery’s adaptation of the cartoon was genuinely tender and heartfelt.

James Gray Explains How Harvey Weinstein Wanted To Change The Ending Of ‘The Immigrant’

13 hours ago

Harvey Weinstein‘s reputation as an overly hands on producer and distributor, has rightfully earned him the nickname Harvey Scissorhands. No shortage of directors including Martin Scorsese, Bong Joon-Ho, Billy Bob Thornton, Wong Kar-Wai, and more, have tangled with the Hollywood veteran over the versions of their films, and James Gray is on that list too. Back in 2000, Weinstein forced Gray to shoot a new ending to “The Yards” (he didn’t have final cut) for the film’s theatrical release, but the filmmaker at least got his director’s cut released on DVD.

14 hours ago

And the remakes keep a-coming. Robert Rodriguez (“From Dusk till Dawn,” “Sin City”) has been hired by 20th Century Fox to remake the 1981 John Carpenter classic “Escape from New York.” Fox won a bidding war for the rights to the reboot in 2015 and has high hopes to reinvent the property as a “Planet of the Apes”-esque franchise.  What studio isn’t trying to turn every brand into a franchise?

‘Justice League’ Unites In New Trailer For Zack Snyder’s Epic Superhero Movie

16 hours ago

Well, it’s really all on this. You can tally up the box office receipts all you want for “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and “Suicide Squad,” but perception is just as valuable, if not more so, and right now, DC Films needs a movie that will succeed with both audiences and critics. Perhaps they’ll get it this summer with “Wonder Woman,” but it’s really “Justice League” that has to be an unequivocal home run.

New York Gets The Spotlight In 3 New ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Posters

17 hours ago

Spider-Man: Homecoming” is right around the corner swinging into theaters this summer. But one has to wonder about Sony‘s upcoming plan. With the help of Marvel, the ailing studio’s been able to get the Spider-Man character back on track (thanks to his stand-out appearance in “Captain America: Civil War“). But Sony looks like they’re returning to a lot of the ill-conceived ideas that revolved around the very poorly-received “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” A Venom spin-off movie is on the way as well as a Black Cat and Sable movie (the latter being a fairly unknown character).

Whether you’re a “Star Wars” fan or not, and maybe you couldn’t care less about what Han Solo’s life was like between the ages of 18 and 24, you have to admit that the upcoming untitled Han Solo prequel film features a hell of a cast.

‘The Last of Us’ Is A Barebones Immigration Fable [Nd/Nf Review]

24 March 2017 1:55 PM, PDT

Wordless and spiritual, the survival genre and the title are the only things that Ala Eddine Slim’s narrative feature debut shares with the other upcoming movie that people will probably get this confused with. An entry in the Venice International Film Critic’s Week and the winner of the Lion of the Future award for a debut film, “The Last of Us”  is a spartan work of art with a strong political sentiment that falters the watchability front.

Colin Farrell Joining Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’

24 March 2017 1:41 PM, PDT

I guess making movies with Yorgos Lanthimos and Sofia Coppola doesn’t keep the bills paid. It’s not as if Colin Farrell is immune to blockbusters (hello, “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them“) but we always figured he had a least some discerning taste. Though, maybe he just wants to cross Tim Burton off his bucket list.

Netflix Is Making 4 More Adam Sandler Movies

24 March 2017 1:26 PM, PDT

Netflix has long insisted that Adam Sandler is very good business for them, and it’s clear it’s just not PR spin.

The streaming service has announced that they’ve inked Adam Sandler for four more movies, on top of their initial four-picture deal: yep, the math is simple, there will be eight Netflix movies starring Adam Sandler. Indeed, the critics may furrow their brows, but “The Ridiculous 6” and “The Do-Over” are the biggest Netflix feature releases ever (according to them, anyway) and while this is the part where cinephiles whine, complain, and snark… who cares?

Cut Tie Fighter Scene From ‘Rogue One’ Was Just Marketing, Gary Whitta Reveals Which Cameos He Didn’t Like

24 March 2017 12:59 PM, PDT

I know, I know — it’s a been a whole week of pulling apart every story thread that the team behind “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” didn’t go down. But let’s face it, the shot of the Tie fighter facing down Felicity Jones‘ Jyn Erso in the early trailers for the film has become one of the most iconic scenes of the movie — even though it’s not actually in it.

Go Rogue: 5 Directions Lucasfilm Could Take Their ‘Star Wars’ Spin-Offs Next

24 March 2017 12:35 PM, PDT

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is available digitally today and you’ve likely been inundated (sorry!) with hundreds of stories about the movie’s development, possible endings and beginnings that were eventually discarded and lots of “what if?” odds and ends. “Star Wars” culture at large is essentially doing a kind of post-mortem on the movie. So with the film being reappraised, the untitled Young Han Solo film cast is already in production and with Star Wars Celebration right around the corner (expect some footage from Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) the galaxy far, far away doesn’t feel that far off at all.

24 March 2017 10:44 AM, PDT

With Werner Herzog directing Nicole Kidman, James Franco, Damian Lewis, and Robert Pattinson, in a sweeping period epic, you might understand why we were initially excited for “Queen Of The Desert.” But you might also understand why, over two years after its premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, we’re a bit less enthused. With weak reviews and almost no buzz, the drama has been languishing for a while, but it’s now headed to U.S.

Damon Lindelof Says “Bingeing Is Bad,” Pens Hilarious Letter To Critics Asking Them Not To Spoil ‘The Leftovers’ Season 3

24 March 2017 9:49 AM, PDT

We’re in the age where content consumption has never seemed more voracious. A recent study showed that when The Youths sit down to binge, they’re averaging about six episodes in one go. For many, this is the future of watching narrative television, but for others, they see an erosion of tradition, and a rollback from a time when everyone collectively experienced each episode of a series together… and then waited a week for the next one.

Brad Pitt Reportedly Considered Playing Cable In ‘Deadpool 2’

24 March 2017 9:25 AM, PDT

Just like any other major A-list, Brad Pitt is very, very choosy, but unlike Tom Cruise and Will Smith, he doesn’t take on blockbusters very often. Prior to “World War Z” (which turned into fiasco, which likely only strengthened his resolve to be careful in selecting such projects), you’d probably have to go back to the “Ocean’s Eleven” movies for his last major franchise (not counting his handful of animated voice roles).

Steve Carell, Amy Schumer & Nicole Kidman Team For Rebecca Miller’s ‘She Came To Me’

24 March 2017 8:58 AM, PDT

Rebecca Miller continues to be arguably one of the most undervalued directors — female or not — working right now. Despite assembling an impressive body of work including “The Private Lives Of Pippa Lee,” “The Ballad Of Jack And Rose,” “Personal Velocity,” and most recently, the utterly charming “Maggie’s Plan,” her films don’t tend to breakout beyond the arthouse.

Flight To Coruscant & Carbon Freeze Bomb Endings To ‘Rogue One’ Revealed

24 March 2017 8:29 AM, PDT

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” arrives digitally today, and all anyone can talk about is about the various versions of the movie that weren’t made. It’s seems the writers and filmmakers had almost too many options on the table at any given time, but it seems the one thing they knew was that none of the characters would survive. And once Disney was on board with that creative decision, there were lots of ideas tossed around about how to send off the rebel heroes.
