Red Carpet: Governors Award Fashions... Let the Campaigns Begin

9 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jose here. As Nathaniel noted, the Governors Awards were held last night in Hollywood (yay Maureen O’Hara!). As usual they were pretty much a rehearsal dinner for the Oscars next year. While their red carpet is more subdued than Oscar’s - they’re there to pay tribute to legendary honorees, not to steal their thunder - there were a few exceptions to the rule. After all, if you want people to vote for you, you gotta make sure they remember you.

Let's take a look at what 16 of the Oscar hopefuls wore. What might it mean in the larger scheme of things?

 

Emily Blunt has worn this exact same thing to at least 10 other award ceremonies, color variations aside. Don't get me wrong, she's stunning etc. etc. etc. but will it help The Baker's Wife's Oscar cause, to look so every-year Blunt? The under-nominated actress should start »

Wahlberg is the 'Six Billion Dollar Man', Russell in 'Bone Tomahawk', Pacino & De Palma Back Together and More

7 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Just above is your first look at Kurt Russell in Bone Tomahawk, a brutally violent, character-driven story following a sheriff (Russell), a gunslinger, a befuddled oldster and a cowboy as they attempt to rescue a group of captives from a band of cannibalistic troglodytes. The film co-stars Richard Jenkins, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, David Arquette, Fred Melamed, Sean Young, Sid Haig and Michael Pare. Showtime will be joining HBO and CBS and launching a streaming-only service sometime in 2015. Yahoo David Chase says he's open to the idea of a prequel to "The Sopranos": "Even if I did it, it wouldn't be 'The Sopranos' that was on the air - obviously at least one person is gone that we would need. There are a couple of eras that would be interesting for me to talk about, about Newark, N.J. One would be (the) late '60s, early '70s, »

Brian De Palma And Al Pacino Plan Some Retribution

6 November 2014 9:04 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When was the last time we were really excited for a Brian De Palma film? No? How about anything with Al Pacino? Still nothing? Ok, how about the combination of Brian De Palma and Al Pacino? Yeah, I thought that would get you.

It has been many years since De Palma and Pacino have worked together, but they are getting back together for Retribution. This film will tell the heartwarming tale about a hit-man afflicted with Alzheimer’s who is on the trail of a child prostitution ring in Philadelphia. Sounds like good fodder for the team that brought us Scarface and Carlito’s Way, doesn’t it? The film is based on the 2003 Belgian thriller The Memory of a Killer, which had the same basic plot, only in Dutch.

It does indeed seem like a good subject matter for a reunion of Pacino and De Palma, but at what price? »

Pacino, De Palma Reunite On "Retribution"

5 November 2014 6:10 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Al Pacino will reunite with "Scarface" and "Carlito's Way" director Brian De Palma on the new thriller "Retribution".

A contemporary remake of Erik Van Looy's 2003 Belgian thriller "The Memory of a Killer," the story centers on an aging hitman and a cop who find themselves allies as they attempt to bring down a child pornography ring in Philadelphia.

What isn't known is if the remake will also include the original film's subplot in which the assassin is also battling the onset of Alzheimer's disease and must race against the clock to bring down the criminals before his mind goes.

Relativity International is in early talks with to pick up the project, which was initially being developed by Focus Features.

This marks the second project Pacino and De Palma have been linked to recently, the other being "Happy Valley" about Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno.

Al Pacino and 'Scarface' Director Reunite for 'Retribution'

5 November 2014 4:49 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Al Pacino is set to reunite with his Scarface and Carlito's Way director Brian De Palma for a new thriller entitled Retribution.

The story centers on a hitman and a cop who form an unlikely partnership as they try to bring down a child pornography ring in Philadelphia. The project is actually a remake of Erik Van Looy's Belgian thriller The Memory of a Killer, in which the aging assassin is also battling Alzheimer's Disease, with his mission becoming a race against time as he drifts towards psychic dissolution. It isn't known if the Alzheimer's angle will be played in this modern-day remake or not.

Relativity International is in early talks with acquisitions executives to pick up the project, which was initially being developed by Focus Features, although it isn't known how far along the negotiations are.

Al Pacino will next be seen in Manglehorn and The Humbling. He »

Brian De Palma and Al Pacino could finally reteam for thriller Retribution

5 November 2014 1:58 PM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It's crazy to think that Brian De Palma and Al Pacino have only worked together twice; perhaps it's because of the iconic roles from Scarface and Carlito’S Way that we often associate the duo together. Now after more than twenty years later they are looking to team up again for Retribution, a remake of the 2003 Belgian thriller The Memory Of A Killer. The plot sounds fantastic; it’s about a hitman with Alzheimer’s who is on the trail of a child »

Brian De Palma & Al Pacino To Reteam On Retribution, Plot Details For Woody Allen's Next Revealed & More

5 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Scarface"/"Carlito's Way" duo Brian De Palma and Al Pacino have evidently been trying to find a way to work together again. Over at HBO, the pair was working on "Happy Valley," a project about the 2011 Penn State scandal until the network halted production in September, and there has been zero word since. But the pair have lined up another gig. Screen Daily reports that De Palma and Pacino are teaming for "Retribution." Loosely based on the 2003 Belgian thriller "The Memory Of A Killer" (trailer below), the story follows a cop and a hitman who work together to stop a child prostitution ring. No word on who penned the script, but color us interested. Meanwhile, that trade has also revealed a logline for Woody Allen's upcoming movie starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone, and it probably won't surprise you too much. This time around, Allen will tell the story »

Woody, Quentin and Al align for Afm

5 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: FilmNation has begun talks at the Afm on the upcoming untitled Woody Allen project, one of several new titles to emerge on the eve of the market.

Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone star in the story that Allen shot on the east coast over the summer about an angst-ridden philosophy professor who starts an affair with a student.

Thus far no Us distributor is attached although regular Allen distributor Sony Pictures Classics must be regarded as the front-runner.

Meanwhile, buyers are also buzzing about Retribution, which marks the reunion of Al Pacino and Brian De Palma for the first time since Carlito’s Way in 1993. The pair had previously collaborated a decade earlier on Scarface.

Relativity International is understood to be in early talks with acquisitions executives on the story of a hitman and a cop who will go to any length to stop a Philadelphia child prostitution ring.

5 movie antiheroes to watch before experiencing Nightcrawler's Lou Bloom

30 October 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Nightcrawler review: A black-hearted thriller

Jake Gyllenhaal returns to the big screen this week in the brilliant Nightcrawler, an La-set thriller about a cameraman who films grisly crime scenes and traffic accidents to make a fast buck from sensationalist TV news stations.

Nightcrawler's Lou Bloom is the latest in a long line of movie characters you love to hate, antiheroes infused with a near-sociopathic drive to succeed and make their mark. Here are 5 movies you need to see to get yourself ready for Nightcrawler's plummet into the moral abyss.

Robert De Niro in The King of Comedy (1983)

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro's jet-black comedy is one of the pair's overlooked collaborations, but in our humble opinion it's one of their best. Exploring similar territory to the duo's masterpiece Taxi Driver, this film casts De Niro as Rupert Pupkin, a terrible stand-up comic with an intense desire to become famous. »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Grant Montgomery interview: Peaky Blinders series 2

26 September 2014 1:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In the last of her Peaky Blinders series 2 set visit interviews, Juliette talks to production designer Grant Montgomery...

One of Peaky Blinders’ most distinctive features is the look and feel of its sets and the high quality of all aspects of its production design. We sat down with Production Designer Grant Montgomery to chat about what we can expect to see in series 2...

Where are we going in series 2? What new sets we will see?

Basically, Tommy’s empire has grown. You’ll see him moving to the metropolis of London and taking on the big gangsters that run London, so visually, you’re moving much more into bigger spaces, and you’re leaving behind a lot of the dark working-class world. Because they have money, and Tommy is beginning to use that money, he’s buying up houses in London. The world is opening up, it’s becoming much more expansive, »

HBO Halts Brian De Palma & Al Pacino's Joe Paterno Film 'Happy Valley'

19 September 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You put Brian de Palma and Al Pacino together, we'll be there. The duo have already collaborated on "Scarface" and the underrated "Carlito's Way," so the news of them reuniting again more than two decades after the latter film was a big treat. Particularly since they were shifting gears, moving out of the realm of pulp gangster flicks into a true life drama. But HBO has temporarily halted those plans. The cable network put a hold on "Happy Valley," which dramatizes the story of legendary football coach Joe Paterno, who saw his career and legacy left in shambles when it emerged that his defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky had been sexually abusing young boys for years. Even worse, Paterno had these assaults brought to his attention, didn't bring authorities into the picture to investigate, and was accused of essentially covering up the crimes. It's a provocative story and things seemed to »

HBO Suspends Pre-Production On Joe Paterno Movie With Brian De Palma & Al Pacino

19 September 2014 1:28 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

It’s been 20 months since Deadline broke the story of the Scarface duo of director Brian De Palma and Al Pacino’s re-teaming for Happy Valley. The film chronicles the fall of Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno, whose legend was undone by revelations he and others in the football program were aware that former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was molesting children, and did little to stop it.

We can exclusively report that the project, based on the bestselling book Paterno by Joe Posnanski, had been quietly picked up by HBO, where Pacino has done two movies, portraying controversial figures: You Don’t Know Jack, about Jack Kevorkian, and Phil Spector. Happy Valley has been undergoing casting, with John Carroll Lynch recently tapped to play Sandusky. Other cast deals had been in different stages too, but we’ve heard that casting sessions on the project had been cancelled and »

Blu-ray Release Date: Oct. 14, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Martin Sheen (l.) and Hayley Cross in The Believers.
