Guy Ritchie: 'Jude Law is Hotson'

16 December 2009 9:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Guy Ritchie has revealed that he always wanted a handsome actor to play Sherlock Holmes's confidant John Watson in the forthcoming blockbuster movie. Speaking at the film's UK press conference, the director said that he hoped casting Jude Law in the role of Watson would give the iconic partnership a dynamic in line with Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. "It's been called the Hotson vs. Potson scenario," Ritchie remarked. "We really wanted a good-looking Watson, then in the (more) »

'Invictus' and songs in movies (that don't need songs)

9 December 2009 10:01 AM, PST | EW.com - The Movie Critics | See recent EW.com - The Movie Critics news »

It's clear in every frame that Invictus is about Nelson Mandela's strategy to use a national love of rugby in the service of national racial healing in post-Apartheid South Africa. But in case we miss the point, the South African vocal group Overtone sings the emotions we're meant to feel, in a song called "Colorblind." So welcome to the first in an occasional airing of one critic's pet peeves: I hate songs in non-musical movies that tell us what we're meant to feel! Especially in serious dramas! The minute the tunes come up, I think, "Uh oh, they couldn't »

Christmas TV movies have lost their special glitter | Jason Solomons

5 December 2009 4:09 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A festive treat has become tired repeats or cartoons. Jason Solomons suggests it should now be a season for Fellini or Renoir

Forget about Christmas movies with snow and tinsel and grumpy fathers learning lessons. Those have their place, and no doubt we'll have our fill of them, good and bad, over the coming month, from Elf to Scrooged, from The Muppet Christmas Carol to Miracle on 34th Street.

What worries me is the lack of new classics. Growing up, my favourite Christmas movies were never the ones actually about Christmas. Rather, it was the season of Billy Wilder and Fred Astaire, a time for The Great Escape and The Towering Inferno, for The Poseidon Adventure and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. In short, Christmas was when you learned about film, its rich history and capacity to thrill and unite. 

It was when I watched films with my dad »

Butch Cassidy Rides Again — and Alone — in Blackthorn

16 November 2009 8:18 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

If someone was ever going to make a sequel to “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (even a “pseudo sequel”), you’d think Hollywood would be all over it. After all, since when has the town been against robbing the graves of a classic for cold hard cash? But before the suits at Lalaland can get their act together, the Spanish have beaten them to the punch. Arcadia Motion Pictures has announced a pseudo sequel to “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, set 15 years after George Roy Hill’s 1969 classic starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford, with Butch Cassidy alive and well and hiding out in Bolivia. In the Spanish-funded and produced, but English-language Western “Blackthorn”, Sam Shepard will play the aging Butch Cassidy, who plots to finally return to the good ol USA after 15 years of everyone believing he had bit the bullet at the guns of the Bolivian army as told by legend. »

Empire’s ‘Picture Perfect – Iconic Movie Stills’

16 November 2009 4:26 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Empire are excellent at compiling these sort of features. They’re latest is that of ‘Picture Perfect  – Iconic Movie Stills’. They’ve compiled 50 of the greatest stills on offer from films both past and present.

I’ve put a small image here of one of my favourite movies of all time. The images is of Butch and Sundance  (from the movie ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) attempting to fight their way out of an impossible situation. The image is so poignant because it’s how the films ends panning out to show the battleground on which they fight fading from colour to black and white. This iconic image will live in my mind forever.

Head over to Empire to view all 50 and read why each image / scene is so iconic.

Stargate Universe 1.08 "Time" Recap

13 November 2009 9:37 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

An offworld adventure?! No Way! That was my first thought when the first frame of Sgu came across my screen tonight.

Then I got my ass handed to me on a silver platter. Was Not what I had expected. Let me begin…

The Set Up

The show opens with the crew coming through the gate unto a dense jungle area. The whole scene is seen through Kino Vision!!!!

Eli works the nerves of just about everyone since he is playing with the Kino and not working on stuff, which is kind of messed up with most of the soldiers walking around looking 'cute' and not lending a hand. Eli comes across Tj and soldier laughing extremely hard and figures it's about him. The group finds some fruits, but don't know if they are edible. Eli tries one and spits it out and Rush declares that Eli just exposed himself and »

John Travolta and Tom Cruise: The next Butch and Sundance?

12 November 2009 3:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

John Travolta and Tom Cruise are keen to remake 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'.

The 'Pulp Fiction' actor has been talking to Tom Cruise about the possibility of re-shooting the classic cowboy adventure, which contributed to establishing Paul Newman and Robert Redford as classic Hollywood actors in the titular roles.

John said: "Someone came up with a good idea - it was a remake of 'Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid' - and there was a rumor that we were gonna do that, and I said to Tom, 'It's not a terrible rumor, it's not a bad idea.'"

Tom and John - who are both dedicated members of the bizarre sci-fi cult Scientology - have reportedly already met with scriptwriters and the film may be made by Tom's United Artists Studio.

Tom is said to be keen to take on the role of bank robber Sundance, »

Travolta Excited To Remake Butch Cassidy And It's Our Fault

11 November 2009 10:26 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It was back in April that we first heard rumors of a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid remake happening with Tom Cruise and John Travolta in the lead. We.d heard nothing since so, logically, I assumed that Paul Newman rose from the grave and preemptively murdered everyone involved using his newfound zombie strength. I guess that was a little far-fetched, because it seems the whole thing is back on. But here.s where it gets really sickening. It.s our fault. My fault for reporting the rumor and your fault for being interested enough in the rumor to share it with your friends over Mojitos. Apparently the original rumor wasn.t entirely true at the time, but when it got back to Travolta and Cruise they decided they liked it and now Pop Eater says John Travolta is .excited. about the redo notion. He told Pop Eater, .Someone »

Will a 'Butch Cassidy' Remake be the Fault of Fans?

11 November 2009 9:30 PM, PST | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

They say be careful what you wish for. Case in point: back in April, many media outlets — ourselves included — jumped all over a report that first surfaced at the UK's Daily Express, which stated Tom Cruise was hoping to remake the 1969 classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as a starring vehicle for himself and friend John Travolta.

The plan was for Cruise to star as Sundance, originally played by Robert Redford, and for Travolta to star as Cassidy, the role immortalized by Paul Newman.

In April, we referred to it as "trumped up tomfoolery." Which it most likely was, in retrospect. But, in a classic example of life imitating art...or art aping media rumors...or monkey, see monkey do...or something like that, AOL's PopEater is reporting that Travolta recently heard of the rumor, got excited about it, and is now pushing forward with Cruise to make it happen. »

Travolta Keen On Butch & Sundance Remake With Cruise

9 November 2009 5:36 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

John Travolta wants to remake classic western Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid with Tom Cruise.

The two movie stars and fellow Scientologists have been friends for years, but they've yet to work together and Travolta admits one recent rumour about a project they were working on wasn't that far-fetched.

He says, "Someone came up with a good idea - it was a remake of Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid - and there was a rumour that we were gonna do that, and I said to Tom, 'It's not a terrible rumour, it's not a bad idea.'" »

'The Godfather 2': Movies I watch and watch again

3 November 2009 1:36 PM, PST | EW.com - The Movie Critics | See recent EW.com - The Movie Critics news »

Maybe it's because The Godfather 2 seems to be playing on cable TV in a loop for all eternity-but I realized the other day that I've lost count of how many times I've heard Michael Corleone say to his brother, "I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart." Not that I mind: There's a profound comfort in re-watching a movie you love, even though (or maybe because) the scenes have worn grooves in your consciousness. My list of most-watched titles includes Casablanca, Citizen Kane, All About Eve, the Marx Brothers' Duck Soup, and, for reasons I can't fathom but just accept, »

Tim Daly Talks the Man of Steel with Superman/Batman: Public Enemies

29 September 2009 1:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The actor talks about voicing Superman in this brand new animated DVD

Tim Daly is an actor who is well-versed in both live-action and animated work. After providing the voice of the Man of Steel for the animated Superman TV series, Daly branched out into live-action work with roles in such hits as Joe Hackett on Wings and his current TV gig as Dr. Pete Weber on Private Practice. Weber has returned to his animated roots, though, providing the voice for Superman once again with Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, which just hit the shelves on DVD and Blu-ray today, September 29. We were provided with a new interview session that Daly conducted and here's what he had to say about this new film and voicing Superman in general.

Can you recall your initial audition for Superman?

Our Favorite Montages: Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

28 September 2009 5:15 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

You learn something new about your movie tastes when you're writing about them every single day. I'm realizing that most of my favorite montages don't come from the 1980s, but are historical recreations of one kind or another. (Even now, there's one hovering in my bookmarks because I can't decide whether it's a montage or a credits report. You'll see it eventually, I'm sure.) Today's montage is from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and has to be one of the most unusual because it's done entirely through still sepia photographs. It's a wonderful sequence, and the photos of Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and Katharine Ross would look at home in your western history museum. For a bunch of photos, it feels incredibly animated by the endless fun Butch and Sundance are having, clearly enjoying the fact that they're wanted men who can go unnoticed in a crowd as they party their way to Bolivia. »

"The Paul Newman Tribute Collection" Now Available On DVD From Fox Home Entertainment

28 September 2009 5:20 AM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Approximately a year after his death, the legacy of Paul Newman continues to live on through Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment with a 17-disc collection of over 27 hours of the Academy Award winning actor's films as well as a 136-page book with never before seen images.

The "Paul Newman Tribute Collection" features some of his best yet perhaps more unnoticed work, which includes "Hemingway's Adventures of a Young Man," collector's editions of "The Verdict," "The Hustler," and "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (which also marks the 40th anniversary of the film) and a special edition disc of "The Towering Inferno." Although some titles such as "The Color of Money," for which Newman won an Academy Award for his performance are missing, the latest tribute set to the actor is still an interesting collection of some of the films from his over 50-year career that might have been missed but are still worthy of seeing. »

Dread Attends Zombieland on the Santa Monica Pier

24 September 2009 11:36 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

This scribe hit earlier today the press junket (which become more like a press conference) on the Santa Monica Pier for Sony Pictures’ forthcoming October 2 release of Zombieland and chatted with the flick’s director, Ruben Fleischer, as well as with film stars Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, and Emma Stone and writers and co-producers Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick. It was a fitting locale, given the nearby roller coaster and a similar ride's filmic tie-in to Zombieland.

"As far the gore and stuff, I think I went a little bit overboard because I wasn’t a big horror fan, video director-turned-first-time feature filmmaker Fleischer admitted in regards to the copious (and I do mean copious) amounts of carnage on display (courtesy of Alterian Inc.). "I just wanted to make sure that we satisfied the zombie audience. (So) there’s a lot of blood, puke, and spit!"

New on DVD: "30 Rock" rocks, Seth Rogen: Mall Cop and Ol' Blue Eyes is back

23 September 2009 1:19 PM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

That season of 30 Rock that just won another Emmy? It's on DVD. As are a controversial comedy with Seth Rogen and a lavish box devoted to a mixed bag of Paul Newman movies.

Read on for more!

I can't begin to imagine why any of you aren't already watching this brilliantly hilarious sitcom, but 30 Rock - Season Three is available to those of you who haven't been converted (as well as those who need repeated viewings to catch all of the rapid-fire gags).

This season contains two of my favorite episodes—"Believe in the Stars," in which a prescription-drug–addled Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) shares a flight from Chicago with Oprah Winfrey, and "Reunion," where Liz begrudgingly attends her high-school reunion to discover that she wasn't a picked-on nerd, as she'd remembered, but actually a bully.

'Jennifer's Body' bad boy Adam Brody takes the EW Pop Culture Personality Test

18 September 2009 10:58 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

In Jennifer's Body (in theaters today), Adam Brody, our favorite geek hero from The O.C., tries evil on for size. He plays the lead singer of a devil-worshipping emo band that attempts to sacrifice Jennifer (Megan Fox) because they think she's a virgin and it will bring them greater fame. (He doesn't do his own vocals: "My singing voice is still going through puberty," he says. "They gave me a singing lesson or two, and it’s not the worst thing in the world, but it’s not anything anyone would choose to hear.") Unfortunately, since Jennifer's not pure, a demon takes over her body and starts feeding on high school boys. Almost as dangerous as Megan Fox with a supernatural appetite? The EW Pop Culture Personality Test. Brody submitted to one and had a couple of friends over in case he needed backup... Entertainment Weekly: The best concert you’ve ever seen? »
