A spurned production company thinks Martin Scorsese ain't quite the goodfella. Cecchi Gori Pictures has sued the Oscar-winning auteur for breach of contract after he allegedly bailed on a project that he agreed to direct for them 20 years ago, E! News has confirmed. In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, the company claims that in 1990 the Raging Bull director signed on to helm an adaptation of the Japanese novel Silence, a religion-tinged drama about the persecution of Christians in 17th-century Japan by its imperious emperor The company, which was founded by Italian magnate Vittorio Cecchi Gori, alleges that it already dropped $750,000 to kick-start the project and that Scorsese »

I hope I can help make that transition a little easier as well as receive some feedback that will help me further improve the site and tailor it to exactly how you would like to use it.

Digital Cinema Discussed by Scorsese, Wachowskis, and Soderbergh

8 August 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Keanu Reeves is producing an interesting documentary called Side by Side in which filmmakers discuss film versus digital. The doc is basically a debate about the revolution of digital filmmaking, and Reeves also serves as the film's narrator and interviewer.  More and more people are shooting their films digitally these days. It more cost effective, easier, and convenient. There are a few filmmakers who are holding out, like Christopher Nolan. I personally don't think shooting movies on film will ever die out, but in the end it all comes down to the story that the movie tells anyway, not the format it's filmed in. 

Movies.com got their hands on six unused clips from the documentary, called "Side Swipes," that are being released on YouTube. They include interesting discussions on the subject of digital filmmaking with Lana and Andy Wachowski, cinematographers Wally Pfister and Michael Chapman (of Raging Bull and The Fugitive), Steven Soderbergh, »

Watch: Wachowskis, Scorsese & Soderbergh Discuss Digital Cinema

7 August 2012 1:55 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The debate rages on! There's an ongoing discussion about film vs. digital, the switch, holdouts like Chris Nolan, and supporters like Scorsese. Will film die out, or will it remain around forever, used sparingly by those like Nolan when they want? One documentary tackling this exact subject is Side by Side, directed by Keanu Reeves, a film that is literally documenting the "Debate Over the Digital Revolution in Filmmaking." Leading up to its release, Tribeca Film has been doing some brilliant marketing by releasing short "Side Swipes" videos of unused interview segments from the film, and we've amassed five of them on this topic. These five videos come highlighted by Movies.com, and focus on film vs. digital in intriguing discussions with talented, smart filmmakers like: Lana and Andy Wachowski, cinematographers Wally Pfister and Michael Chapman (of Raging Bull, The Fugitive), Steven Soderbergh and Martin Scorsese. The Wachowski segment is »

Look: 26 Photos Of Martin Scorsese On Set

6 August 2012 3:07 PM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Martin Scorsese's career has had plenty of highlights, and clicking through this gallery of behind-the-scenes photographs might very well add a few of the famous director's films to one's Netflix queue.

From "Taxi Driver" to "Raging Bull," "Goodfellas" and beyond, Marty's films have helped shape the dialogue of American cinema in the second half of the 20th century, and his visual language is still developing today.

Though the photos might not do justice to the mood of each film, it's fun to see how Scorsese has changed his personal look over the years.

The director's enormous 1970s beard has gradually been replaced with almost equally imposing eyebrows, which are "reaking magic," according to one Redditor.

Click through the gallery below to view photos of the director.

'The Master' Secretly Debuts To Early Oscar Talk

6 August 2012 9:30 AM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

We felt lucky last week when The Weinstein Company moved the release date of Paul Thomas Anderson's latest movie to September 21, more than a month earlier than we originally expected, but one group of blessed moviegoers in L.A. got to see "The Master" before any of us.

Before the Aero Theater in Santa Monica screened Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining," the staff announced that there would be a secret screening afterward for anyone who wanted to stick around. Those smart enough to see what was happening were treated to the first public screening of "The Master," Anderson's newest film, which supposedly takes the foundations of Scientology as its inspiration.

Read some reactions from the screening after the jump!

Several of the attendees took the Twitter immediately after the screening to rave about the film, specifically the performances from Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, but most of the »

Tarantino, Scorsese and Other Directors Reveal Their Top 10 Movies of All Time

6 August 2012 8:08 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

There was plenty of discussion across the movie blogosphere following last week's announcement that Vertigo had dethroned Citizen Kane as the greatest film of all time according to Sight & Sound's decennial poll. In addition to revealing the top 50 as determined by critics, they also provided a top 10 based on a separate poll for directors only. In the print version of the magazine, they have taken it a step further by reprinting some of the individual top 10 lists from the filmmakers who participated, and we now have some of them here for your perusal. Among them, we have lists from legends like Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola and Quentin Tarantino, but there are also some unexpected newcomers who took part including Richard Ayoade (Submarine), Miranda July (Me and You and Everyone We Know) and Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene). Some of these lists aren't all that surprising (both Quentin Tarantino »

First Reviews For 'The Master' Arrive After Secret & Public Screening

6 August 2012 6:42 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Thought you had to go all the way to Venice to see "The Master"? Following a screening of Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining" at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, Calif. on Friday night, Paul Thomas Anderson debuted his newest film for a lucky assembly of movie buffs.

The surprise screening -- Anderson and his wife Maya Rudolph were both in attendance -- elicited the kind of response you would have hoped for from the crowd, with many tweeting Oscar proclamations.

Beyond the hyperbole of 140 characters, however, were some actual "reviews" of "The Master." Writing for Indiewire's blog Thompson on Hollywood, Beth Hanna noted that the film is "gorgeous," before adding that it's "stylistically and tonally" like Anderson's last film, the 2007 Best Picture nominee "There Will Be Blood."

"The Master" stars Philip Seymour Hoffman as Lancaster Dodd, a charismatic science-fiction author who starts his own religious following the 1950s. (Similarities »

Top Ten Movies of All-Time from Scorsese, Tarantino, Coppola, Allen, Del Toro and More

6 August 2012 6:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last week, the recent Sight & Sound list of the top 50 movies of all-time (find it here) was released. The poll is conducted every ten years and this year's edition was made by polling 846 critics, programmers, academics and distributors. In addition to that list, however, Sight & Sound polled 358 film directors, which included Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen and Mike Leigh. Tallying the results the directors' top ten looked like this: Tokyo Story (dir. Yasujiro Ozu) 2001: A Space Odyssey (dir. Stanley Kubrick) Citizen Kane (dir. Orson Welles) 8 1/2 (dir. Federico Fellini) Taxi Driver (dir. Martin Scorsese) Apocalypse Now (dir. Francis Ford Coppola) The Godfather (dir. Francis Ford Coppola) Vertigo (dir. AAlfred Hitchcock) Mirror (dir. Andrei Tarkovsky) Bicycle Thieves (dir. Vittoria De Sica) The problem, for me at least, is that doesn't really tell us much.

Reactions Abound: 'The Master' Screens, Hyperbole Follows, Hype Reaches New Level

4 August 2012 8:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master screened at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica as part of the American Cinematheque screening of a new Dcp restoration of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. It was the first public screening of the film, and it was shown in 70mm, which is reportedly causing some problems for distributors with Time Out Chicago quoting a source at the city's Music Box theatre saying, "They're not offering it to us... the Weinstein Company seems to be moving forward with its own booking plans." The film is targeting a limited September 14 release followed by a nationwide roll-out a week later, but it will first premiere at the Venice Film Festival followed by a screening at the Toronto Film Festival with press screenings assumed to be lined-up in advance as well. However, Friday night's screening is already causing a lot of noise. It was a »

First Impressions Arrive as Paul Thomas Anderson Secretly Unspools ‘The Master’ In Santa Monica

4 August 2012 6:39 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Leave it to Paul Thomas Anderson to keep us guessing, only to surprise everyone. After a flurry of rumors on where The Master would premiere, dating way back to Cannes up though Venice, Tiff and even Fantastic Fest, the director secretly attached his new film to a screening of Stanley Kubrick‘s The Shining at an American Cinematheque screening last night in Santa Monica’s Aero Theater. Yes, quite the double feature.

A source at Hollywood Elsewhere said he saw PTA “lingering in the back [of the theater] before The Shining started” with wife Maya Rudolph. Before Kubrick’s film came on screen, there was the announcement “that there would be a mystery 70mm movie projected as a second feature.” Audiences left after watching Kubrick’s masterpiece and then came back half-hour later to see a 70mm project of The Master, which was reportedly around 150 minutes. So, without further ado check out some of the glowing reactions below, »
