Casey Affleck Will Take Point For Western Film Far Bright Star, Joaquin Phoenix Boards Cast

18 November 2015 1:39 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Real-life brother-in-laws and soon to be brothers outside the law in film, Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck are re-teaming for new outlaw western flick Far Bright Star, with the latter on board to direct.

Set against the sun-kissed outback of 1916, Affleck’s new drama will be based on a novel by Robert Olmstead, and it’s understood Damien Ober has been brought on board to transition the bandit story onto the silver screen.

As for Phoenix’s role within Far Bright Star, he’ll lead the western as a grizzled calvary man who, upon recruiting a ragtag bunch of scoundrels to help his plight, sets his crosshairs on a devious Mexican revolutionary known as Pancho Villa. Plans soon take a turn for the worst, however, and when his men are butchered, he’s cast astray in the desert and left fighting for survival.

Details at this stage are thin on the dusty ground, »

Film Review: ‘Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans’

13 November 2015 9:05 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you see only one 44-years-later postmortem on a critical and commercial misfire this season, it might as well be “Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans,” an inside-baseball documentary best appreciated by movie geeks with a taste for cautionary tales about superstar hubris, slow-motion trainwrecks and dream projects that devolve into, if not full-blown nightmares, then extremely rude awakenings. It might also attract longtime fans of McQueen, who died of cancer in 1980, as well as a few under-30 curiosity seekers interested in knowing what the “King of Cool” was all about. And, yes, there’s definite appeal for those fervent cultists who insist “Le Mans,” the 1971 film maudit examined here, is some kind of underappreciated masterwork, though there certainly aren’t enough of those folks to make much of a difference. Theatrical pit stops will be fleeting, but the movie could have respectable mileage in small-screen platforms.

The first poster and trailer for Adam Sandler’s western comedy The Ridiculous 6, produced for Netflix, have been revealed online and we have them for you below.

The Ridiculous 6 is the first film in Sandler’s four picture deal with Netflix and is a play on ensemble western movies like The Magnificent Seven.

Production on the film was dogged by controversy earlier this year when several Native Americans reportedly walked off set in protest at racist depictions of their culture.

The cast includes Sandler regulars Terry Crews (Blended), Rob Schneider (Grown Ups) and Taylor Lautner (Grown Ups 2), as well as Harvey Keitel (Youth), Steve Buscemi (The Cobbler) and Nick Nolte (Warrior.

The Ridiculous 6 is set to land on Netflix on December 11th.

Watch: First Trailer for Adam Sandler’s ‘Ridiculous 6’ Lives Up to Title

27 October 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has released the first trailer for Adam Sandler’s spoof “The Ridiculous 6” less than two months before its Dec. 11 debut on the streaming service.

The trailer features plenty of Sandler’s trademark slapstick comedy mixed with gunplay and a basic outline of the plot: “Six strangers will learn they share one ridiculous secret” — which means that they all share the same father.

The title is a spoof of “The Magnificent Seven.” The most impressive aspect of the trailer is a listing of the massive cast by their last names: Harvey Keitel, John Turturro, Nick Nolte, Blake Shelton, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz, Vanilla Ice, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford.

“Ridiculous 6” received plenty of publicity in April when a dozen Native American actors complained about its racist jokes, but Sandler has insisted »

‘The Ridiculous Six’ Trailer: No Brides For 6 Brothers

27 October 2015 11:28 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The first film in Adam Sandler’s four picture deal with Netflix is set to ride into town December 11, and so it goes that Netflix has released the official trailer for The Ridiculous Six. Charting territory similar to Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West, the comedy Western aims to satirize Western tropes and specific Western films, most notably The Magnificent Seven. The story follows outlaw Tommy 'White Knife' Stockburn (Sandler), an orphan raised by… »

Adam Sandler Goes Outlaw in 'Ridiculous 6' Trailer

27 October 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Adam Sandler is hoping to find a little more luck on Netflix than he has lately at the box office.

The actor signed a four-movie deal with the streaming service, and the first, "Ridiculous 6," now has a trailer. Sandler stars as Tommy "White Knife" Stockburn, an outlaw who terrorizes the West with a gang made up of his improbable brothers (including Taylor Lautner, Terry Crews, and Rob Schneider). They have to set aside their usual bank-robbing and pillaging to rescue their father (Nick Nolte).

"Ridiculous 6" is meant to be a comedic parody of "The Magnificent Seven. The movie generated some controversy when Native American actors walked off the set, complaining about mistreatment and racially insensitive dialogue. The trailer, at least, wisely leaves out any jokes of that nature. In fact, there are not many jokes at all, other than Schneider bumbling around and the idea that one man could father such different-looking sons. »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Demon Seed

24 October 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Demon Seed (1977) was the latest in an ever growing subgenre of science fiction film: Technodoubt (okay, I just made that up). But as the world started to catch up with its imagination (Apple Computers was born in ’76), and technology raged forward like a silicon locomotive, Hollywood searched for ways to exploit mankind’s natural fear of progress. From the dangerously malfunctioning Hal in 2001 (1968), to the murderous androids of Westworld (’73), rich veins of cybernetic carnage were mined for maximum cinematic paranoia. Demon Seed upped the ante by downloading the menace right into the home.

Released in April by MGM, the film was not a commercial success by any means, but certainly drew attention from critics due to its unusual (and quite absurd) high concept story, a showcase performance from Julie Christie, and a piqued interest in director Donald Cammell. Regardless of the gateway, Demon Seed remains a unique genre treatise on dominance and loss. »

From Swashbucklers to Supermen: A Brief History of Action-Movie Heroes

1 September 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

Video of the Day: Watch how the original and remake of ‘Insomnia’ differ from each other

30 August 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the course of movie history, numerous films have been remade in other languages. Hollywood has been no exception to this rule, with perhaps 1960’s The Magnificent Seven standing as the most notable example of a remake, bringing Akira Kurosawa’s classic The Seven Samurai to a new audience, with David Fincher’s 2011 film The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo proving that the trend is still alive and well.

Remakes, however, come in all forms, from devoted redoings to loose interpretations by filmmakers who put their own unique stamp on the material. The latter category includes the 2002 film Insomnia, which was directed by Christopher Nolan. The latter’s third film, and his last before taking on the Dark Knight trilogy, was an adaptation of Erik Skjoldbjærg’s 1997 film of the same name, with Alaska stepping in for Norway, and Al Pacino stepping in for Stellan Skarsgård.

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...


One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

The Man from Uncle review: A fizzy antidote to 007

Suave spy caper The Man From Uncle opens this week, revamping the cult '60s TV series and bringing it to the big screen for the first time in nearly 50 years. If you've never seen the original show or its eight movie spin-offs, here's your handy guide to get you up to speed...

1. The Man From Uncle was created by James Bond's Ian Fleming... sort of

The original idea to make a television series about a suave, sophisticated spy who travelled the world fighting villainy came from producer Norman Felton. He was interested in presenting each episode from the point of view of an innocent person - say, a housewife or a farmer - who find themselves drawn into an adventure beyond their wildest dreams.

In 1962, Felton pitched the idea to none other than James Bond creator Ian Fleming; based not »

10 Upcoming Sequels And Reboots That Will Destroy Your Faith In Cinema

Columbia Pictures

According to William Goldman, who won Oscars for writing Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and All The President’s Men, there are three types of movies: those that aspire to quality and succeed, those that aspire to quality and fail, and those that were never meant to be any good at all.

The last group, Goldman claims, comprises “movies for which the pulse was either totally or primarily financial: rip-offs, spin-offs, sequels etc.” In other words, most of today’s pictures are about as creative and well intentioned as Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

Executives that talk about rebooting this or reimagining that sound like Eskimos describing snow, using multiple words to describe the same thing. In the end, they only require two – ‘cash’ and ‘grab’.

There have, of course, always been sequels and remakes, and the world would be a poorer place without »

Sony's The Dark Tower Will Face Off Against The Power Rangers Reboot

Movies studios are always looking for vacant weeks for their films. Without competition, obviously, these films have a better chance of making millions of dollars. Studios have even gone to great lengths to move the release dates of their films so that not competing with another project. But Columbia and Lionsgate Films have forgone tradition and gallantly decided to go head to head, as The Dark Tower and Power Rangers, respectively, are both now going to be released on January 13th, 2017.

Sony set release dates for 16 new films

5 August 2015 11:56 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sony Pictures has set release dates for 16 new films. The best news that we can see from the list is that there are two Bad Boys sequels amongst them – one for release in 2017, and the fourth film in the series in 2019.

On the list is a potential reboot of Jumanji , the sixth movie in the Resident Evil franchise that we spoke of yesterday, and a street date for a Barbie movie, which we believe is being written by Juno scribe Diablo Cody.

Here’s the full list of movies, along with their Us release dates.

No future Bond on this list, thought Sony will probably announce that in good time ahead of a sure-thing, the 25th adventure in the 007 franchise, and potentially a final bow for star Daniel Craig.

Money Monster – 4/8/16

The Shallows – 6/24/16

Ghostbusters – 7/15/16*

Patient Zero – 9/2/16

The Magnificent Seven – 9/23/16*
