The Biggest Flops Of 2016

27 November 2016 7:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at the least profitable films of the year…

Earlier this week, Forbes magazine, usually interested in listing the world’s richest people, released the details of the least profitable films of 2016. It’s not a good year for some big names in film. This dip in box office can be put down, in part at least, to events like the Olympics, and the Us Presidential election; people staying at home to watch real drama rather than fictional ones on the big screen.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is one of the films on the list, only making $16.4 million on a $28 million budget, and it’s easy to see why it was a flop; it’s a comic book or an Saturday Night live sketch; only the most ardent Austenite or Zombiphile is interested in seeing a feature length film about it. The book sold well, »

Anna Kendrick and Billy Eichner Chronicle Growing Up With Mini Pop Musical on ‘The Late Late Show’

22 November 2016 12:02 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Last night on “The Late Late Show,” Anna Kendrick, Billy Eichner and host James Corden performed a mini pop musical that chronicled the journey of a woman’s life from birth to adolescence to marriage to parenthood. “We’ve got 14 songs, 10 sets, 1 take, and 0 pressure,” Corden declared at the top before diving into the cheery musical. Watch the video below.

As one can reasonably surmise, the songs featured in the musical correspond to various life milestones. Eichner sings Salt n Pepa’s “Push It” as Kendrick’s character is born, who in turn sings Adele’s “Hello” as she emerges from the womb. Both Kendrick and Corden sing the Madonna songs “Papa Don’t Preach” and “Like a Virgin” to symbolize the emotional turbulence of high school. Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” soundtracks Kendrick’s »

Why Are The Best Film Editors Female?

20 November 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at why so many great films were cut by women…

You may not have noticed in among all news reports about Jackie Chan being awarded one, but last week Anne V. Coates was given an Honorary Oscar. You might not know her name, but you certainly know her work.

Coates has worked as a film editor since the 1950s, cutting everything from Lawrence of Arabia to Fifty Shades of Grey (one of them is about a guy who keep his love for flagellation secret, and the other is Fifty Shades of Grey). She’s had a remarkable career, and though she’s one of only a small number of female editors, they all seem to be among the best in the business.

Last year, one film swept the board when it came to awards for best editing; Mad Max: Fury Road, a film that is »

Val Kilmer Reveals Michael Douglas Apologized After Claiming Kilmer Has Cancer

16 November 2016 7:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Michael Douglas has apologized to Val Kilmer for claiming that his fellow actor was battling oral cancer, the Top Gun star shared late Tuesday night.

Michael Douglas wrote me a nice note apologizing for suggesting to the press overseas I ‘wasn’t doing too well…’ and was grateful to hear I am doing well,” Kilmer, 56, wrote on Facebook. “He’s a classy guy.”

Kilmer then recounted meeting Douglas, 72.

Oliver Stone insisted I meet him, knowing what Michael would say about Oliver torturing him during Wall Street,” Kilmer recalled, mentioning the duo’s 1987 movie. “It was hilarious and Oliver was relishing reliving Michael’s pain. »

What Donald Trump’s Favourite Film Says About Him

13 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at the 45th Us President’s favourite movie…

If you haven’t been too busy watching and re-watching the international trailer for Rogue One, you may have noticed that there was a Us Presidential election this week, resulting in Donald Trump being elected to the White House.

During the election campaign, as happens, trivia about the candidates’ cultural tastes comes out during interviews and profiles, in an attempt to make those who are running for office seem more like normal people instead of narcissists who believe only they can save the world.

When asked about his favourite movie, Donald Trump didn’t say Razzie Award winning 1990 film Ghosts Can’t Do It, in which he had a cameo alongside Bo Derek, nor did he chose Home Alone 2: Lost In New York which he also appeared in. Neither did he name either of the Sex and the City films, »

Val Kilmer Has Trouble Speaking at First Public Appearance Since Denying He Has Cancer

11 November 2016 10:16 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Val Kilmer slurred his words and struggled to speak during an event in Los Angeles on Thursday, his first public appearance since denying he has cancer earlier this month.

The 56-year-old actor presented the film version of his one-man play, Citizen Twain. Kilmer did address his health at one point, when he told the audience that he had to cancel his upcoming tour for the play because his “tongue swelled," People reports.

"I went into rehearsals down in Florida and started having trouble with my speech," he said. "Obviously, I'm still recovering. My tongue swelled up and I canceled the tour. As I'm recovering I'm showing this."

Veteran’s Day Tribute: The Ten Best Navy Movies

10 November 2016 4:39 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Veteran’s Day is November 11.  While we all try to escape from the most exasperating Presidential Campaign in our history let me pay tribute to the Men and Women who have served in the military to insure we keep our electoral process and our freedoms.

Having served in the Navy four years (there he goes again!) I have a keen interest in any movie about the military, especially the sea service.  I did serve during peace time so had no experience with combat but still spent most of my tour of duty at sea on an aircraft carrier, the USS Amerca CV66.  Among other jobs I ran the ship’s television station for almost two years.  Movies have always been important to me and so providing a few hours of entertainment every day when we were at sea was just about the best job I could have had.

Video Game Review – Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

10 November 2016 3:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kris Wall reviews Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare…

Looking beyond the sci-fi leaning of its new subtitle for a moment, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is the 13th game in the series, a seemingly unstoppable juggernaut of a franchise that has been split between 3 different developers to keep up its annual release cycle, it’s begun to feel like the Call of Duty brand itself could quite possibly become infinite.

Infinite Warfare puts you in the boots of Captain Nick Reyes, a top military pilot within the United Nations Space Alliance, and not too dissimilar from Maverick in Top Gun. Earth has exhausted its resources and begun to branch out into the infinite expanses of space, however with a new frontier comes a new enemy in the form of the Settlement Defence Front, or Sdf for short. The Sdf represent a splinter faction of the Unsa that broke away during »

'The Rock' 20 Years Later: Nicolas Cage Still in Awe Over Working With Hero Sean Connery

10 November 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

A prolific actor, Nicolas Cage has 77 film acting credits to his name, including three films -- Army of One, Dog Eat Dog and USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage -- released within a week of each other this month. And while he’s had some notable hits (National Treasure) in recent years, nothing’s quite topped the string of films that helped define the mid-’90s. 

After gaining notoriety for Leaving Las Vegas, which earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor, Cage followed the low-budget film with a string of blockbusters -- The Rock, Con Air, Face/Off -- and the romantic drama City of Angels.

The Films That Help Explain The Us Election

6 November 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at films that deal with political campaigns…

Unless you’ve been living away from society, disconnected from any news source for the past eighteen months, you’ll be aware that there is a Us Presidential Election this week. It’s been a hard fought, bitter campaign with serious allegations thrown at each candidate from the other side. Donald Trump can count on the backing of serious political heavyweights such as Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, 16 And Pregnant star turned porn actress Farrah Abraham, and Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase. Hillary Clinton has had to make do with the backing of Barack Obama, Colin Powell and virtually every major newspaper in America.

If you’re confused about the process, or just can’t get enough of the debates, dramas and dirt slinging, then here are a few films to watch…

The Candidate is a 1972 film starring Robert Redford as a young, »

Exclusive: Anthony Edwards on the Challenges of Directing and Playing Around on the ‘ER’ Set

4 November 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

With his feature directorial debut, My Dead Boyfriend, Anthony Edwards is enjoying life behind the camera -- something he appreciated long before becoming known as Goose in Top Gun or Mark Greene on NBC’s long-running medical drama, ER. “It goes all the way back to when I was 16,” he tells Et. “I always loved the technical side of film.”

And having acted for a decade before even joining ER, it was only natural for Edwards to take on the opportunity to direct an episode of the series, “Take These Broken Wings,” in the second season. “ER was a great place for my debut because I had the familiarity of all the crew and everybody,” Edwards says. “I could play and experiment with the ideas that I had of how to visualize it.”

The season’s penultimate episode, which aired on May 9, 1996, was a heavy one, with Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield) consulting a therapist to cope with »

Jacob Tremblay and His (Ridiculously Attractive) Dad Dress in Matching Tom Cruise Costumes

1 November 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jacob Tremblay sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to promote his new movie, Shut In, on Monday night, which just so happened to fall on Halloween. Luckily the 10-year-old actor arrived to the show in costume, dressed in Maverick's olive-green flight suit from Top Gun (his dad even matched!). When the late-night host asked if Jacob had ever seen the iconic Tom Cruise flick, he responded, "Yeah, my parents love '80s movies 'cause they're old." (Harsh, Jacob. Harsh.) The precocious Room star didn't channel the '80s just for Jimmy Kimmel Live, either. Earlier in the week he shared a photo of himself dressed as Marty McFly from Back to the Future for his school's Halloween dance on Instagram, proving that he looks adorable in any decade.

James Corden on Why U.S. Networks Failed to Successfully Adapt ‘Gavin & Stacey’

30 October 2016 6:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

British romantic comedy “Gavin & Stacey” was a huge hit across the pond, and seemed ripe for a U.S. adaptation a la “The Office.” And indeed, both NBC and Fox tried to make American versions of the show – but James Corden, who created the series with Ruth Jones, knows why those remakes fell flat.

“They never understood what the show was about,” Corden said of the U.S. networks. “They would buy the show and immediately change it.” Corden spoke Sunday to an audience of “The Late Late Show” fans at EW’s PopFest in Downtown Los Angeles.

“Gavin & Stacey” followed the budding relationship between Gavin (Mathew Horne) from Essex and Stacey (Joanna Page) from Wales, and how their families are brought together. Corden played Gavin’s best friend, Smithy, while Jones was Stacey’s pal Nessa. The show launched in 2007 on digital channel BBC Three, but was so popular »
