Movie review of 2014: Year in pictures - Oscars, Marvel, Batfleck, more

11 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

It started in Wall Street and ended up in North Korea. 2014 was a year full of highs and lows in the world of cinema, with a diverse range of movies reeling in the punters, some striking visual moments that captured the present and teased the future, and several hugely saddening departures.

January

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese's collaboration The Wolf of Wall Street opens in cinemas, providing the soundtrack to 2014 with Matthew McConaughey's chest-beating humming. The black comedy became the director's highest grossing film, scooped five Oscar nominations and reminded everyone why driving under the influence is a very bad idea.

February

The world of entertainment was devastated by the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman at the age of 46. The acclaimed actor, who excelled in films like Boogie Nights, Capote, The Master and Magnolia, had been working on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 at the time of his passing. »

Countdown: Top Seven YouTube Videos For Christmas 2014

24 December 2014 11:44 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Merry Christmas, Tubefilter readers! As per usual, the holiday spirit has taken YouTube by storm, turning the world's most popular video site into a winter wonderland. We've already shared a few Yuletide videos on the blog, and while this Guinness World Record-setting performance is hard to top, we've found seven other videos that give The Piano Guys (and their 1,000 collaborators) a run for their money.

7. Epic Christmas Caroling by Improv Everywhere

The channel known for its intricate flash mobs returned this holiday season with an impressive caroling video that goes far beyond a couple merry well-wishers on your porch. From this point on, I refuse to let any carolers sing for me unless they are accompanied by a full brass band.

Why Richard Linklater's Boyhood is Digital Spy's movie of 2014

24 December 2014 8:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Looking back at 2014, it's been an eventful year in film. Audiences have travelled to the far reaches of the universe in Interstellar and Guardians of the Galaxy, seen Scarlett Johansson shift from AI to Black Widow, visiting alien to arse-kicking superbeing, and even discovered that everything is awesome in a world made of Lego. And yet for all these high concepts and lofty ideas it's a film with a clear, simple idea at its core that sticks out the most.

Of course, calling Richard Linklater's Boyhood "simple" is to do it something of a disservice. This coming-of-age drama follows the life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane) as he grows from youngster to college student, but instead of actor switches and the usual bag of cinematic tricks we get to witness the passage of time thanks to Linklater's bold decision to shoot over the course of 12 years. Under his guidance, it all looks so effortless. »

10 Things Mass Effect Does Better Than Star Wars

24 December 2014 4:12 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Bioware/LucasFilm

Star Wars has a prestigious pedigree of cultural influence that most franchises never see, and despite being tarnished somewhat by the prequel films, love for the series is still as strong as ever. In terms of its footprint within popular culture it is the king of science fiction/fantasy, to the point where it is near heresy to criticise it… well, at least the original trilogy, anyway.

And yet, while Mass Effect may be a relative newcomer to the sci-fi genre, it more than holds its own against the competition, including Star Wars. The writers and artists at Bioware have taken classic elements of the genre to create a compelling work all their own. It may be a video game, but Mass Effect can easily be considered one of the best science fiction universes around. In fact, it could be argued that it is better than Star Wars in a lot of ways. »

Why Hollywood Isn’t Freaking Over Bummer 2014 Box Office

23 December 2014 5:56 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With the holiday season soft, it’s clear the 2014 domestic box office is going to wind up down from last year by nearly 5 percent. So why aren’t we hearing more groans and gnashing of teeth from Hollywood executives?

It’s because despite the downturn, the majority of the studios made money on their movies. Fox, Disney, Paramount, Universal, Warner Bros. and Sony should all — to varying degrees — wind up in the black on their film slates.

The fact that 2015 has a shot to be the biggest on record is brightening Hollywood’s mood, too. Among the heavyweight films set »

Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Trailer Is Coming Soon

23 December 2014 5:09 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, everyone thought it was a huge risk for Marvel. Fans proved that notion wrong, as the movie went onto become the biggest release of 2014. Its doubtful that Ant-Man will fare as well, since it is being released alongside Disney's two juggernauts Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Age of Ultron. But its no longer seen as a risk for Marvel Studios, and fans are becoming more and more interested in the title as its release grows nearer. That excitement should triple once the first trailer hits, which will be very soon. The only question is when and where will we see it first?

The Alberta Films Rating board has confirmed that they received the finished trailer, and they have rated it PG. The teaser runs exactly 1 minute and 48 seconds, which is 20 seconds longer than the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. »

Sometimes dissenting opinions come from strange places. To wit: This 5-year-old girl, who really doesn't see what the big deal with Jabba making Princess Leia wear that metal bikini in Star Wars. Adam Buxton uploaded this animation to YouTube that shows his daughter's thoughts on a Star Wars book. (Animation team The Brothers McLeod took some liberties in animating the book's text: At one poin,t Jar Jar Binks is described as a "universally despised lop eared lizard ponce.") She doesn't get what the big deal with Leia's outfit in Return of the Jedi is, though. Though the little girl knows Jabba is a "baddie, »

Finally! A Sweded Trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

23 December 2014 2:50 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It’s been nearly a month since the teaser for J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens dropped. Since then, we’ve seen numerous parodies of the trailer, from shot-for-shot recreations using Lego or footage from the original trilogy, to spoofs from Saturday Night Live and Seth MacFarlane, as well as a George Lucas “Special Edition” parody. Now someone finally had the cardboard-cutting-know-how/the balls to do a live-action sweded version of the trailer. Dumb Drum, the guys behind the Avengers: Age of Ultron swede we posted last month, stepped up to the plate and put together this fantastic shot-for-shot remake of The Force Awakens teaser. I’ve also included the side-by-side comparison video below.

Thanks to the Dumb Drum for sending this in to us!

Justin Lin to direct Star Trek 3; here are 4 people who should direct Star Trek 4

23 December 2014 1:31 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

[N.B. This article started out as being about Star Trek 3, but then Justin Lin was announced as director before the article was published. Having directed four Fast and Furious films, including the terrific Fast Five, Justin Lin is a brilliant action director, who's bound to deliver on a blockbuster level, although the same could be said of basically any action movie he might work on.

The article follows, slightly reworked for Star Trek 4, seeing as Star Trek is a franchise with lots of potential to explore further, and Justin Lin is a highly sought-after director, who will probably go on to The Bourne Legacy 2 and then perhaps Fast and Furious sequels after finishing Star Trek 3. So this is probably the first article about who should direct Star Trek 4...]

Recently, Roberto Orci stepped down from directing Star Trek 3 (2016), which would have been his directorial debut. He's worked on the screenplays for all three rebooted Star Trek movies, and remains involved in Star Trek 3 as a producer.

The obvious question remained: who would direct Star Trek 3?

With Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013) director J.J. Abrams busy directing the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII (2015), Justin Lin is stepping in to direct Star Trek 3, now set for July 8, 2016.

Star Trek 3 gets July 2016 release date

23 December 2014 1:10 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Star Trek 3 has received its release date.

The third instalment of the sci-fi reboot will be released on July 8, 2016, reports Variety.

The release date will mark the 50th anniversary of Star Trek's television series, which launched on September 8, 1966.

The news comes after it was announced that Fast & Furious 6 director Justin Lin will be directing the movie.

Roberto Orci was originally due to direct, after replacing Jj Abrams, but will remain as a producer on the project.

Abrams left Star Trek due to his commitment to Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and John Cho are all expected to return for Star Trek 3.
