Lincoln Center Chaplin Gala To Fete Robert Redford

24 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Has any contemporary movie star more intriguingly chafed at the gilded prison of stardom than Robert Redford? Certainly, he was not the first — or the last — matinee idol who endeavored to show us there was more to him than just a pretty face (or, in Redford’s particular case, that California tan, those blazing baby blues, and that wonderfully, ridiculously tousled hair).

Some actors, so inclined, stretch themselves in their choice of material; others add producing, directing, and even political activism to the mix. But “Bob” did all that and still felt somehow unfulfilled. So, rather like a fussy housewife forever rearranging the living room furniture, he gazed out at a sizable property he owned in the mountains of Utah and thought that an institute devoted to the cultivation and support of American independent filmmakers might look awfully nice over there.

If Sundance now seems nearly as iconic as Redford himself, »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Great Movie Characters: Frank Galvin in The Verdict

18 April 2015 2:14 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

By

Alex Simon

Frank Galvin (Paul Newman) is a man who has given up. A once-promising honors graduate of Boston College Law School, partner in one of the city’s most prestigious firms (not to mention married to the daughter of the firm’s founder), Galvin discovered too late that he had the biggest Achilles Heel an attorney can be cursed with: a conscience. Upon learning that another partner in his firm tried to bribe a juror from a case Frank was trying, thinking he’d be helping Frank out, Frank threatened to report him to have him disbarred and prosecuted. So of course, the firm backed Frank, fired the crooked lawyer and made sure he spent many years making license plates at the state pen, while giving Frank a raise and a key to the city. Right?

Sidney Lumet’s 1982 film The Verdict is one of the great cinematic redemption stories. »

Wild Card, film review: Jason Statham stars in a thoroughly tongue-in-cheek affair

20 March 2015 | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

The latest Jason Statham thriller is based on a novel by William Goldman, author of the Hollywood memoir Adventures in the Screen Trade, script writer of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and originator of one of the most famous observations ever made about the film industry, namely: "Nobody knows anything." The Goldman book has already inspired one film, the 1986 Burt Reynolds vehicle Heat. »

‘Wild Card’ Review

11 March 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jason Statham, Michael Angarano, Dominik García-Lorido, Milo Ventimiglia, Stanley Tucci, Max Casella, Jason Alexander, Sofía Vergara, Anne Heche, Matthew Willig | Written by William Goldman | Directed by Simon West

Nick Wild (Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes…and this time, it’s all or nothing.

How the mighty have fallen… You’d never guess watching Wild Card that it came from the pen of Academy Award-winning writer William Goldman. Yes, the highly-regarded novelist-turned-screenwriter who was responsible for the screenplays for films such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, »

Jason Statham Broods In New Clip From Wild Card

11 March 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Jason Statham's latest Wild Card sees him team up for a third time with director Simon West, after The Mechanic and The Expendables 2, in Wild Card, adding Nick Wild to his collection of hard men roles, a lethal Las Vegas body guard with a gambling problem and a score to settle with the local mob. It may seem like it will add up to the usual Statham fare, but the combination of West and screen writer William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, All The President's Men) does promise something a bit deeper than Nick Wild just going........wild on people, as you can see from the clip below. Wild Card hits cinemas on this side of the on March 20th. »

Stephen King’s Misery Stage Adaptation to Star Bruce Willis on Broadway

4 March 2015 3:20 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Number one fans can be flattering, but Annie Wilkes comes on a little too strong, and Bruce Willis is about to find out just how strong when he makes his Broadway debut in Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures' stage adaptation of one of Stephen King's most chilling novels: Misery.

The play is scribed by William Goldman (The Princess Bride, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid), who also penned the screenplay for the film adaptation. The stage version of Misery made its world premiere in the fall of 2012 at Bucks County Playhouse.

'Birdman' cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki joins exclusive club with Oscar win

22 February 2015 7:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By winning the Best Cinematography Oscar for a second year in a row, "Birdman" director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki has joined a truly elite club whose ranks haven't been breached in nearly two decades. Only four other cinematographers have won the prize in two consecutive years. The last time it happened was in 1994 and 1995, when John Toll won for Edward Zwick's "Legends of the Fall" and Mel Gibson's "Braveheart" respectively. Before that you have to go all the way back to the late '40s, when Winton Hoch won in 1948 (Victor Fleming's "Joan of Arc" with Ingrid Bergman) and 1949 (John Ford's western "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon"). Both victories came in the color category, as the Academy awarded prizes separately for black-and-white and color photography from 1939 to 1956. Leon Shamroy also won back-to-back color cinematography Oscars, for Henry King's 1944 Woodrow Wilson biopic "Wilson" and John M. Stahl »

New UK trailer and poster for Wild Card starring Jason Statham

30 January 2015 4:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new UK trailer and poster have arrived online for Wild Card, the latest thriller starring Jason Statham (The Expendables), and you can check them both out below…

Wild Card is a quasi-remake of 1986 thriller Heat, which was initially written by William Goldman. The original film starred Burt Reynolds and was directed by Dick Richards (who replaced Robert Altman) and was a critical and box-office flop. Goldman described the film as “One of my major disasters”.

It’s production is something of a legend, as Richards and Reynolds got into a fight that left Reynolds injured and need of an ambulance, and later director Richards suffered a fall from a camera crane. But while that film suffered, the new version sticks closer to Goldman’s original vision, rather than what the film ended up becoming.

Wild Card Review

29 January 2015 10:23 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jason Statham is one of the most magnetic action stars of his generation, although you wouldn’t know it from the middling to mediocre line-up of moderate-budgeted releases he has headlined over the last decade. The actor’s steely cool and casual intensity is often the best part of fleeting, forgettable genre films. However, if given a meatier character or some prime dialogue to chew on, Statham shows a drive, confidence and vulnerability that his other vehicles only hint at.

It turns out that Statham needed a refreshingly low-key slice of old-school noir from veteran screenwriter William Goldman, of All the President’s Men and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid fame. Wild Card is certainly not a classic near the pantheon of those films, but it is above average for a high voltage flick with Statham’s name above the marquee. Goldman adapted the lurid thriller from his novel, »

The Chips Are Down For Jason Statham In New Poster For Action Flick Wild Card

27 January 2015 9:02 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Given the cult status of The Mechanic, it’s no wonder that it has only taken four years for director Simon West to reunite with his no-nonsense star Jason Statham for another bout of high-octane action. Only this time around, the filmmaker is shifting the action to Sin City for Wild Card, which will see the Stath step into the shoes of an ex-marine with an uncontrollable penchant for gambling.

With a script from William Goldman — creative mind behind Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and The Princess Bride – there’s certainly an air of promise with the pair’s latest outing. Centering around Nick Wild (Statham), Wild Card will see our protagonist get in deep with the sharks when he steps up to protect a friend, only to find that he has gotten on the wrong side of some of the most ruthless mob bosses in town.

New Poster For Jason Statham's Wild Card

27 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Jason Statham’s Wild Card – or ‘Carta Selvagem’ if you’re of one of our Brazilian readers – reunites everyone’s favourite gruff action star with Simon ‘The Mechanic’ West for an action-thriller that sees him take on Vegas Mob types, no doubt in the kind of Snap game that doesn’t involve any playing cards whatsoever. Here, debuting, is the film’s new poster, positioning Statham against kind of neon backdrop he was born to stand in front of looking hard. Penned by screenwriting great William Goldman, the man behind Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and The Princess Bride, it’s the story of Nick Wild (Statham), a Vegas bodyguard with a gambling issue. When a pal gets brutally beaten, Wild turns on the perpetrator, only to discover that the man has a powerful dad high up in the Mob. Suddenly, he’s in deep with the city’s crime grandees. »

25 surprising side businesses from Hollywood stars

15 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Newman’s salad dressing enterprise is common knowledge, but did you know about these 25 businesses run by Hollywood stars?

What do big-time movie stars get up to in their spare time? While their fictional counterparts might enjoy chopping wood or getting hosed down by friendly females (more on that here), actors themselves have a tendency towards wacky entrepreneurial ideas and hefty industrial investments.

Looking at our findings from some rigorous research (read: Googling), it seems that you can divide famous actors into a handful of groups – those who are trying to do something good for the world, those who are trying to break into internet megabucks and those who like opening restaurants.

Without further chit-chat, here’s a breakdown of which stars are behind which brands which you may or may not know and love…

Solidarity on France Terror Suggests Cracks Before Paris ‘Unity Rally’

11 January 2015 4:41 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As up to an estimated 1 million people prepare to attend a Paris mass rally Sunday afternoon protesting this week’s Charlie Hebdo attacks, strains – in international media coverage and France’s political elite – are beginning to appear in the very broad-based unity the very march is meant to demonstrate.

About 40 world leaders will join the march, including U.K. prime minister David Cameron, German chancellor Angela Merkel, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Mass demonstrations have already taken place in Paris and across France, involving hundreds of thousands of marchers Saturday.

In a rare show of unity, media worldwide stood shoulder-to-shoulder after Wednesday’s attacks, condemning the Charlie Hebdo attacks, which left 12 people dead.

“Hactivist” group Anonymous said it would shut down jihadist websites; as reported by Associated Press, Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah claimed the Charlie Hebdo killers had hurt Islam more than any cartoons. »

Two of Redford's Biggest Box-Office Hits on TCM Tonight

6 January 2015 5:20 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Robert Redford movies: TCM shows 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,' 'The Sting' They don't make movie stars like they used to, back in the days of Louis B. Mayer, Jack Warner, and Harry Cohn. That's what nostalgists have been bitching about for the last four or five decades; never mind the fact that movie stars have remained as big as ever despite the demise of the old studio system and the spectacular rise of television more than sixty years ago. This month of January 2015, Turner Classic Movies will be honoring one such post-studio era superstar: Robert Redford. Beginning this Monday evening, January 6, TCM will be presenting 15 Robert Redford movies. Tonight's entries include Redford's two biggest blockbusters, both directed by George Roy Hill and co-starring Paul Newman: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, which turned Redford, already in his early 30s, into a major film star to rival Rudolph Valentino, »
