The Best of “Movie Poster of the Day,” Part 8

17 October 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: Italian poster for Confidential Agent (Herman Shumlin, USA, 1945). Artist: Luigi Martinati (1893-1984).

The most popular poster I’ve posted on  Tumblr in the past three months—and actually the second most “liked” poster I’ve posted in the three years I’ve been doing this—was this Italian design by the great Luigi Martinati for a lesser known Lauren Bacall vehicle, but one in which the late star was unusually front and center. (You can see more of Bacall’s posters here.)

The rest of the top twenty are a wild variety of old (three for films from the 1920s, no less) and new (two 2014 releases). I was especially pleased to see Dorothea Fischer-Nosbisch’s superb 1967 design for a Festival of Young German Film get such attention. A lot of other design greats are featured: Saul Bass, the Stenberg brothers, Macario Gomez, Karl Oskar Blase and Josef Fenneker. And »

25 September 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of the 58th BFI London Film Festival, American Express has teamed up with some of Britain’s most influential movie bloggers – including us – to produce a new bank of film trivia celebrating British cinemas rich history.

“There’s so much to celebrate about British film, from iconic locations, multi-award winning production and creative teams to some of the world’s best loved stars,” states Melissa Weber, Vice President Brand and Communications, American Express “People love talking about film and this list should fuel some great discussion, enabling people across the country to get into the spirit of this year’s Film Festival.”

A selection of the facts have been turned into Vine videos to be hosted on Twitter via @AmexUK, using #BritFilmTrivia and will be calling for enthusiasts to trade their favourite facts.

Blu-ray Review: 'Goldfinger'

23 September 2014 5:29 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★Celebrating the 50th anniversary with a special gold-rimmed Steelbook, it's easy to see why Guy Hamilton's Goldfinger (1964) remains, for many, the quintessential 007 outing. Bond's tussle with bullion dealer Auric Goldfinger (did he get into the trade due to his surname, or was it a coincidence?) is a handsome affair which oozes class and represents the ultimate in cinematic flight of fancy, due in part to John Barry's opulent and audacious score, plus Sean Connery's incomparable screen magnetism. While the film represented something of a gamble for MGM at the time for a franchise in its early stages (the £2 million budget was equal to those of Dr. No and From Russia With Love combined), it worked.

Goldfinger 50 years on: How the 1964 classic shaped the 007 films

22 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The James Bond series - based on Ian Fleming's spy novels - is one of cinema's biggest ever film franchises, thrilling fans now for over half a century.

1962's Dr No and the following year's From Russia with Love lay the groundwork, but it was with 1964's Goldfinger that the 007 movies became a true global phenomenon.

A 50th anniversary Blu-ray re-issue of the Sean Connery classic is available to buy from today (Monday, September 22). To mark the occasion, Digital Spy explores how Goldfinger shaped Bond as we know and love him.

1. The Extravagant Pre-Titles Sequence

The previous film, From Russia with Love, was in fact the first Bond to feature a pre-titles sequence. But that scene, which saw Robert Shaw's Red Grant stalk and kill a 007 impersonator, was short and simple - and didn't even feature the real Bond.

Goldfinger was the first film to take full advantage »

Joan Rivers' Death: Dr. Lawrence Cohen No Longer Working At Yorkville Endoscopy Clinic

13 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dr. Lawrence Cohen, who oversaw the endoscopy that eventually lead to Joan Rivers’ death, is no longer practicing at the Yorkville Endoscopy facility where the outpatient surgery took place.

Joan Rivers' Doctor No Longer At Yorkville Clinic

Yorkville Endoscopy Clinic released a statement on the matter, simply stating that Cohen, who served as medical director of the clinic, “is not currently performing procedures at Yorkville Endoscopy; nor is he currently serving as medical director.”

Rivers suffered complications during what was meant to be a routine surgery at Yorkville Endoscopy, when she went into cardiac arrest. The comedian was transferred to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City where she was placed in a medically induced coma. Rivers died on Sept. 4 at the age of 81, and her funeral was held on Sunday, Sept. 7.

New York health officials launched an investigation into Yorkville Endoscopy on Sept. 5 following Rivers’ death and an autopsy was performed, »

Denzel Washington Really Wants To Play James Bond

8 September 2014 6:52 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James Bond producers threw a bit of a curve ball when they hired blond actor Daniel Craig to play the latest incarnation of 007, but history has shown us that the only actors really ever seriously considered for the role are white dudes who hail from the British Isles. This has been the case for all six performers who have taken the part so far, dating back to 1962's Dr. No, but there's always the question of whether or not it could ever change in the future. Is it possible that we could one day see, perhaps, a black American dude playing James Bond? It turns out that if the decision were up to Denzel Washington that the answer would be a definitive "yes." The actor recently took part in an Ama session on Reddit, and one of his most enthusiastic answers he gave to one of his fans' questions was »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

10 Movie Sequels Whose Titles No Longer Made Sense

28 August 2014 5:19 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

There was a time when movie sequels were simply given titles that sounded good on their own, without studios having to club audiences over the head with the fact the movie was part of a franchise.

From Russia With Love didn’t need to say that it was the sequel to Dr. No because it was obvious from the rest of the marketing and the book it was based on that it was another James Bond adventure. If the Bond series had begun just now then it would, like Jacks Ryan and Reacher, have cumbersome titles like James Bond: On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

Even book series that are quite happy to give separate titles to their separate parts gain extra title elements on their progress to film. The simple and to the point Mockingjay is now The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, in spite of »

Beauty Vs Beast: Double Oh Golden Boys

25 August 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Ja from Mnpp here, using this week's round of our "Beauty vs Beast" series to commemorate the occasion of the 84th anniversary of the birth of that paragon of brute debonair charm, Sean Connery. Who even knew "brute" and "debonair" could be a simultaneous thing til he showed us? Rock 'em sock 'em and shake them martinis, it's a Bond off. I waffled between a couple of villains to face him off against - I do love Dr. No and his awesome plastic head bubble - but when it comes to a bigger-than-bad personality I think the odds are in Gold's favor.

A Brief Look at the History of Movie Titles & Opening Credits

18 August 2014 7:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One year ago, Nora Thos and Damian Perez released the following short film taking a look at the history of movie titles and today it was brought to my attention thanks to Slashfilm. While only touching on the art of movie titles in broad strokes, it's an interesting look at what the short calls "The Film Before the Film", covering enough territory and offering enough details to make it easy for you to being doing a little research of your own. The film obviously touches on the work of Saul Bass (North by Northwest, The Man with the Golden Arm), Maurice Binder (Dr. No), Pablo Ferro (Dr. Strangelove), Greenberg Associates' work on the original Superman titles, Kyle Cooper (Seven, Mimic), Digital Domain (Fight Club) and the inventive work of Kook Ewo for Splice as well as plenty of earlier work in film from Thomas Edison to the Rko titles before »

After 40 Years Of Trying With McQueen, Stallone, Eastwood, Reynolds And Vin Diesel, Mack Bolan Pic Is Back

12 August 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Over the course of his 900-volume novel series launched by Don Pendleton in 1969, elite anti-terrorist operative Mack Bolan has cracked every conceivable case except one–making it to a movie screen. Bolan, who at one time or another was going to be played by Steve McQueen, Sly Stallone, Clint Eastwood and Vin Diesel, is getting another movie shot. Avatar 4 co-writer Shane Salerno has closed a deal with the author’s estate and Gold Eagle Books giving him the rights to develop the Bolan character for a feature film series.

Salerno will write and produce, getting underway after finishing co-writing the Avatar sequel with James Cameron. He said his goal is to make a “relevant, grounded and gritty, real-world PG-13 action-drama film series.” He’ll package it with a filmmaker and actor, and then set it up at a studio quickly with the intention to get underway with a trilogy. »

Monster Movie Mondays looks at King Kong Escapes

Director: Ishiro Honda

Release date: 1967

Also released as: King Kong, Frankenstein’s Son (Germany)

Appearing kaiju: King Kong, Mechani-Kong, Gorosaurus

In the early 1960s, Toho struck a deal with American producer John Beck (who was representing Willis O’Brian) to make a movie based on the King Kong character which would end up being 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla. The film was one of the most successful entries in the Godzilla franchise and is a beloved movie by fans of the King of the Monsters. Toho were keen to produce another Kong movie while they still had the rights and the character was set to star in Ebirah, Horror of the Deep only to be replaced with Godzilla as the movie rolled into production. He would return to screens though in the 1967 movie, King Kong Escapes.

Review: "A Hard Day's Night" (1964) Starring The Beatles; Criterion Dual Format Release

16 June 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

They Bought Us Love

By Raymond Benson 

Released in the summer of 1964, A Hard Day’s Night, starring The Beatles and directed by Richard Lester, is arguably the second most influential British film of that decade (the first being Goldfinger, coincidentally released the same year.). Why? For one thing, it brought The Beatles to a worldwide audience that was just getting to know them through their music. Secondly, it spawned imitations and knock-offs (The Monkees, anyone?) and is arguably the genesis of music videos—where would MTV have been without it? Thirdly, the film itself was innovative, fresh, and surprisingly funny (those long-haired boys from Liverpool could actually act!).

One of the best things about the Criterion Collection’s new deluxe box set of the film (dual Blu-ray and DVD, three discs) is the short extra, On the Road to “A Hard Day’s Night,” an interview with author Mark Lewisohn, »

New Spongebob SquarePants Poster Lands

9 June 2014 7:07 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There are few corners of culture more mystifying, more complex and baffling that the Spongebob Squarepants phenomenon. Here is a man - a spongeman - whose adventures make the subsea elements of Bedknobs And Broomsticks look like The Blue Planet. What creature, on god's good Earth, can be friends with a starfish and a squirrel? And live blissfully in an underwater pineapple, presumably a joint development by Dr. No and the Man From Del Monte? But Spongebob is that creature and he's back with another CG adventure in the second movie spin-off of the massive Nickelodeon show, The Spongebob SquarePants Movie: Sponge Out Of Water. Here's the first poster showing Bob in action. With a crab. Little is known of the mesohyled one's journey in this one, but judging by the title and the tagline, he'll be emerging from the sea like Venus or, say, the Kraken, and destroying the seaboard going on adventures. »

No 'Tomorrow': Doug Liman on the Blockbuster That Almost Broke Him

"I was training to climb Mount Everest," Doug Liman says, motioning to the slim treadmill desk tucked into the corner of his Tribeca office space. "It was originally for a project I was going to do with Tom Hardy [about Everest climber George Mallory]…compared to the movie I was making, the thought of scaling a mountain seemed restful." The 48-year-old director starts shaking his head slowly. "It was like, 'Well, there won't be any exo-suits, there won't be any aliens, there won't be the challenge of trying to get an honest performance out of »

Answers to Can You Guess All The Moviesc Take Four!

It seemed like almost as soon as I posted this latest "Guess the Movies" installment Andre Marques had all the answers. That said, he was the only one that guessed that got them all and so I have no problem saying I think this was the most difficult installment yet and you'd better believe the next one will be even more difficult, though I will post that one closer to the middle of the week rather than on a Friday so I can keep closer tabs on your progress and get involved a little bit more. So, with that I bring you all the answers to the graphic and I'd also like to give a shout out to One Perfect Shot as each screen capture was from recent posts on their site, a great place to keep an eye on once a month or so.

Bunny Yeager, Photographer of Bettie Page Pinups, Dead at 85

25 May 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Bunny Yeager, a model turned pin-up photographer who helped jump-start the career of then-unknown Bettie Page, died Sunday, her agent said. She was 85 years old. Yeager died at a North Miami hospice where she had been for about a week, her agent, Ed Christin said. Yeager's legacy is her cultural impact, from pin-up photography and fashion, helping to popularize the bikini, and influencing other artists such as Cindy Sherman, who read Yeager's guides on photographing nudes and making self-portraits, Christin said. "Anyone in Miami in the 1950s who wanted a bikini would come to her, and she'd make one," he said. »

Marvelous Da7e #47: You Must Remember Days of Franchise Past

21 May 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to The Marvelous Da7e #47!

This Week: Some prep for your viewing of X-Men: Days of Future Past this weekend.

X-Men: Days of Future Past is a very interesting movie for reasons that have little or nothing to do with the plot of the film. So soon after seeing how Amazing Spider-Man 2 launched a Universe of Spider-Man, we’ll be exposed to the other method of megafranchise building: the series retcon.

Is it retroactive continuity? Is it a mash-up? I haven’t seen something like this since maybe GoldenEye in 1995, and I’m not sure how to feel about it.

First things first, this is Not a review of the movie. Those are embargoed until tomorrow, and I’ll have one for you. As a matter of fact, I’ve been sent into my Wednesday body from the future to not make this column a review, because of »

12 Perfect Casting Choices That Launched Major Film Franchises

14 May 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Typecasting is a dirty word to an actor. To be typecast means that producers, casting directors, directors, other actors and especially the film-going public can’t see you in any other role.

However, what some actors rebel against, others use to pay the bills, even years after the original role has long since disappeared from view. So here’s a list of twelve actors who were perfectly cast for the roles they were given, and have become indelibly stamped in our minds whenever we think of that character, for better or worse.

The criteria here is that the star in question must have carried the role for at least three films and become so identified with it that it’s hard, if not downright impossible, to consider someone else for it.

Let’s get to it;
