Bruno Wu, Arthur Sarkissian Launch Peak Time Production Venture

28 April 2016 5:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chinese entrepreneur Bruno Wu has teamed with veteran Hollywood producer Arthur Sarkissian to launch a new venture, Peak Time Entertainment. The pair plan to leverage their financial and creative skills on an initial slate of five projects.

Among the planned projects is “Titanic Code,” a new take focusing on the conspiracy theory about the sinking of the Titanic,. It is based on a script by David Marconi, who wrote “Enemy of the State” and the screenplay for Martin Campbell’s upcoming “The Foreigner,” starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan.

Also in the pipeline is an untitled action comedy scripted by Bruce Evans and Ray Gideon (“Stand By Me,” “Only The Lonely:  The Roy Orbison Story”.)

In addition, the duo plans to collaborate in late Fall on “Knights In Paradise,” a character-driven, romantic action-comedy to be filmed in the U.S., China and the Dominican Republic.

The Top 10 Opening Lines In Film

26 April 2016 7:19 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Like the first words out of a baby’s mouth, the first lines uttered in a film are important. These are our picks for the 10 best opening lines in film.

Spring is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the beginning of brighter days than to celebrate the best film beginnings of all time! Check back all month long as we look at the films with the best beginnings.

It can be argued that a character’s lines can move a film forward and have more of an impact on the audience than any amount of action or breathtaking filmmaking. Lines, including narrations provide a source of information often more direct than an image. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, »

Stephen King's 'Cell' finally gets a trailer, so is it better late than never?

26 April 2016 12:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This one’s been a long time coming. Stephen King is a genre unto himself at this point. A “Stephen King movie” can be anything from Stand By Me to Maximum Overdrive, and the only thing they all have in common is him as the original source of the material. It seems like a given at this point that if King publishes something, it will eventually be turned into a film. Some books just take longer than others to make the jump. For example, Hulu just wrapped up 11.22.63, the eight-part adaptation of King’s time-travel story about trying to stop the murder of JFK from taking place. Co-produced by Bad Robot and starring James Franco, that was not the first attempt at cracking that adaptation. Jonathan Demme was the first director to try to take a crack at that one, and he was going to do it as a feature film. »

TV Review: ‘The Detour’

6 April 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jason Jones and Samantha Bee are making a strong bid to be anointed as the First Couple of TV comedy. At the very least, they’ve earned that title at TBS, with “The Daily Show” alumni collaborating on Bee’s “Full Frontal,” and now “The Detour,” a scripted sitcom about a road trip gone terribly wrong that hits the ground running and merits the network’s “Very funny” slogan – at times explosively so. Even with the occasional fits and starts, “The Detour” looks like one of those shows that’s worth going out of one’s way to find.

At first blush, the series (Bee and Jones wrote the premiere, directed by Steve Pink) looks like a teased-out version of the “Vacation” movies, with Jones’ Nate taking his wife Robin (“Justified’s” Natalie Zea) and their cusp-of-puberty twins (Ashley Gerasimovich, Liam Carroll) on a road trip from Syracuse to Ft. »

Final Fantasy Xv Release Date, Playable Demo & Film Announced

1 April 2016 2:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Square Enix

A decade in development is normally the sign that things aren’t working correctly, but with Final Fantasy Xv this is clearly not the case. The gameplay shown at the recent #UncoveredFFXV livestream from developer Square Enix shows that this time has, in fact, been well invested, making it one of the beautiful and intricate Final Fantasy games ever created.

Not only will you be able to play Final Fantasy Xv this year, as soon as September 30th in fact, but a playable demo is available right now on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The second playable tease to Final Fantasy Xv, after 2015’s Episode Duscae.

A story trailer – which even featured a cover of Stand By Me from Florence and the Machine – showed our cast of characters switch in-between calm friendship bonding scenes to fighting giant monsters, as Square Enix announced a Deluxe and Ultimate Collector Edition of the game. »

"Thrones" Stars Lead "Final Fantasy Xv" Film

31 March 2016 6:28 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Square Enix used its "Uncovered: Final Fantasy Xv" event in Los Angeles last night to announced a September 30th worldwide release date for the highly anticipated game title "Final Fantasy Xv".

The big surprise though was that in addition to the game, Square Enix and its partners also announced several large-scale projects set within the Final Fantasy Xv Universe, the biggest being a whole new CG animated feature.

Sony Pictures Entertainment and Square Enix will distribute "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy Xv," the computer-animated feature which will set the stage for the main Final Fantasy Xv narrative. "Game of Thrones" stars Sean Bean and Lena Headey along with "Breaking Bad" actor Aaron Paul lend their voices to the project which will be released digitally worldwide before the game launch.

Then there's "Brotherhood Final Fantasy Xv," a new five standalone episodes anime series exploring the friendships between crown prince Noctis and his three comrades. »

Corey Feldman is returning to his Lost Boys roots in the new thriller Corbin Nash. Only this time he's trading in Edgar Frog's iconic red headband to play the opposite side of the fight, starring as a cross-dressing vampire. Ben Jagger is directing the film, which also recently added cult icon and genre vet Malcolm McDowell.

Corbin Nash is described as a vampire noir. It follows a New York City cop who's trying to hunt down his parents' murderers. The search leads him to Los Angeles, where he meets his untimely demise. He is brought back to life as a deadly killer. Malcolm McDowell is set to play a character named The Blind Prophet, though no further details have been released.

Our monthly round up of horror DVDs and Blu-rays, led by the wonderful and terrifying Audition...

So, it seems to be time once again to ask that age-old question: what’s your favourite cinematic depiction of conjoined twins? Ranging from the mutoid majesty of That Guy In Total Recall With The Talking Stomach Baby through to the Farrelly brothers’ gross-out gubbins Stuck On You, Hollywood has carved a progressive path in its depiction of wretched freaks of nature, magical otherworldly beings and monstrous killers. Following in this glorious tradition of stigmatising the disabled (insert Iain Duncan Smith reference here), this month sees the Bluray release of Frank Henenlotter’s classic splatter comedy Basket Case trilogy.

The director of the equally subtle Frankenhooker cut his teeth with his 1982 cult favourite Basket Case, which told the tale of the Bradley brothers, bemulleted Duane (Kevin van Hentenryck), the ostensibly ’normal »

American Idol Recap: Repeat Offenders

10 March 2016 7:18 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

After all these years, American Idol is still pretty much my favorite thing on television, and yet I nevertheless spent the last seven days filled with unspeakable dread about this week’s performance show.

VideosReality Check: We Tell American Idol How to Fix Its Farewell Season! Plus: The Voice Winner Spoiled Already?

That’s not a knock on the remaining contestants in Idol‘s abbreviated, blink-and-you-missed it farewell tour, but rather, a dig at the show’s producers for bringing to us the worst theme week in 15 years*: Most-Performed Songs from Past Seasons. (*Yes, even worse than Season 6’s »

30 Movies Turning 30 in 2016

27 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Alright, with a year that sees Gen X'ers losing celebrity icons from their youth in near epidemic proportions, it sure is nice to have movies. Yes, some consider them just mere entertainment, but in their immortal form (which gets better and better every year due to 4K, 5K, and whatever other K somebody wants to transfer them to), these things will honestly never go away. They will live forever. When you realize that we have lost Lemmy, David Bowie, Glenn Fry, Vanity and lord knows who's next, the realization of our own mortality has never been more profound. Which is why the amount of movies turning 30 in 2016 is so crucial.

Yes, we at MovieWeb write a lot of lists. Why is this? Well, aside from the fact that you like lists, they serve a purpose. People inherently want to know that other people agree with them. The fact that this »

Ethan Hawke says he regrets feeling competitive with River Phoenix. Hawke and Phoenix famously costarred in the 1985 film Explorers, and as two young actors they often found themselves going after the same movie roles.

The actor admits he was "so jealous" of Phoenix's rising fame. "It was really hurting my life," Hawke, 45, said of the jealousy while speaking at the Austin Film Society on Thursday night.
