Universal’s Scott Bernstein Leaves Studio to Produce ‘Ride Along 2′

25 July 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran production exec Scott Bernstein is leaving Universal to become an independent producer on a trio of studio projects.

Bernstein will be working as a producer on the Universal movies “Mama 2,” “Ride Along 2″ and “Straight Outta Compton.” He joined the studio in 2004 and has been exec VP of production for the studio since late 2009.

Bernstein oversaw production on “Ride Along,” starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, which  became the highest-grossing film ever released in January at $134 million and won the box office for three weeks in a row.

Ride Along 2″ has already been dated for Jan. 15, 2016.

He also oversaw production on Guillermo del Toro’s “Mama,” which grossed more than $147 million worldwide.

Bernstein also worked on Melissa McCarthy’s “Identity Thief,” “The Break-Up,” “Role Models” and “Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.” He’s been developing a reboot of “Battlestar Galactica”; attached Jj Abrams and Bad Robot to the »

The Rock: Always The Rocksmaid, Never The Rocksgroom

22 July 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Friday will see the release of The Rock’s (None of this Dwayne Johnson nonsense, he’s The Rock) newest action tentpole Hercules, with him playing the historic hero. You’ve probably already made up your mind if you’re going to see this film or not, you’re not anxiously waiting on the fence. You probably haven’t given a second thought to Hercules. But I have, and for the first time in a long time, I’m worried about The Rock.

When you really stop to think about it, The Rock has built a career becoming one of the most unlikely box office superstars. In 2013 Forbes named him the highest grossing actor of the year with his films that year bringing in $1.3 billion. But I say box office superstar with a caveat: He only smashes numbers when he’s part of an ensemble. Put the guy in »

The Dusty VHS Corner: Wrestlers Body Slamming Cinema

20 July 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe digs deep into The Dusty VHS Corner for a trio of straight to video actioners featuring some of the biggest stars of the squared circle…

During the 80’s when the WWE was developing into the larger than life, sometimes cartoony drama that introduced the world to things like Hulkamania and story arcs straight out of soaps, to be one of the top wrestlers you needed presence, personality and showmanship. There were some strong personalities in the wrestling arena, and the immense popularity of Vince McMahon’s entertainment machine seemed to suggest that for a select few, the transition from wrestler to acting superstar could be an easy, and potentially lucrative one.

Long before Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson broke into movies and became the big box-office draw that he is today, a host of grapplers in years gone by have attempted the same, without hitting those heights. Arguably the »

2014's most influential director: John Carpenter?

16 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things, »

Interview: Zach Gilford on the World in ‘The Purge: Anarchy’

15 July 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Zach Gilford is a familiar face to fans of the TV series “Friday Night Lights,” where he portrayed Matt Saracen. The actor grew up around Chicago in Evanston, Ill., and has risen through the ranks of acting in his new home of Los Angeles. He currently is featured in the sequel film, “The Purge: Anarchy.”

The Purge: Anarchy” takes up the premise of the first film, which presupposes a near future America in which laws are suspended for one night a year, allowing all aggressions, crimes and firearms to be practiced with abandon. Zach Gilford portrays Shane, who is part of a couple – his real-life wife Kiele Sanchez is Liz, his other half – that are accidentally thrust into the Purge night with no protection, and hooks up with a armed vigilante named Leo (Frank Grillo). The sequel ups the ante of the first film, with more social commentary and fire power. »

Film Review: Dull Soap Opera in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’

10 July 2014 9:55 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” just goes to show you can have the most expensive and best looking visual effects money can buy, but it doesn’t mean a damn thing if you haven’t got a good tale to tell.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

The apes themselves, and Caesar in particular, remain technical wonders, but rarely has something so lifelike been in the service of a blockbuster so utterly lifeless. This long, slow moving, self-important, unrelentingly dark and depressive picture is more butt-buster than blockbuster. Those looking for a good popcorn movie about talking apes are in for a monkey melodrama instead. It treats the family tensions inside the ape clan like Shakespeare, but it’s more like a simian soap opera that could have been called “All My Chimps,” or perhaps “The Apes Of Our Lives.”

“Sold is so much more than a movie, it is a way to bring awareness about Human Trafficking” – Jane Charles Producer of Sold

8 July 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

There are some films that are just more than the images onscreen and Sold is one of those films. It not only takes you on the journey of Lakshmi, a thirteen-year-old Nepali girl who is sold into prostitution in India, and her tale of survival, escape and hope, it also puts you in the middle of the global issue of human trafficking.

Sold, based on the book by Patricia McCormick, was directed by Jeffrey D Brown and produced by Jane Charles. The film also had noted actress Emma Thompson on board as exectuive producer. Featuring Gillian Anderson and David Arquette, the film also boasts a cast that includes Seema Biswas, Sushmita Mukerjee, Tillotama Shome, Parambrata Chatterjee, Priyanka Bose, Ankur Vikal and many others. Sold has been creating a buzz and moving people to act at festivals in La and Albuquerque and the next stop is the London Indian Film Festival. »

The Millennial’s Guide to Picking Horror Movies

7 July 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

For those of you that aren’t religiously worshipping at the altar of The Killer Pov podcast, (brought to you by Geeknation, Elric Kane, Rebekah McKendry, and our own Rob G.) you’re missing out on some extremely poignant and important discussions in the name of horror. Last week the Killer Pov gang and their guests Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate) and Heidi Honeycutt (Etheria Film Festival) discussed the way film selections, distributions, and video on demand services have changed over the years. Coming from someone born in 1990, my introduction into genre films was during the tail end of Ma & Pop Video Stores and VHS box art. If I’m not being told directly “Hey, _______ is awesome, go see it.” There’s a good chance it will slip under my radar. As a younger horror fan, I’m not alone. Thanks to things like Amazon Instant Video, Hulu, Netflix, Vudu, Roku, and other strangely named streaming services, »

Jug Face (2013) Review

30 June 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Jug Face (2013)

Written by: Chad Crawford Kinkle

Directed by: Chad Crawford Kinkle

Cast: Lauren Ashley Carter (Ada), Daniel Manche (Jessaby), Larry Fessenden (Sustin), Sean Bridgers (Dawai), Alex Maizus (Emaciated Boy), Sean Young (Loriss), Mathieu Whitman (Bodey)

I gotta say that this movie could be about anything. Let me present a few possible scenarios: A poor, homely, simpleton girl that is abused by those more fortunate than her, and hopefully, she executes a cold and calculating plan of revenge using supernatural means? Nope. Maybe a backwoods girl possessed by something unholy whose only salvation is an exorcism by a righteous crusader? No, but closer than the first option.

Jug Face” begins with Ada, a young rural girl getting crudely deflowered in the woods by her boyfriend perhaps, unfortunately more like her brother. A few weeks later, she suspects and then confirms that she is pregnant. »

Summer sitcom rewind: 'I Love Lucy' - 'Job Switching'

27 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're continuing this periodic summer project where we revisit classic sitcom episode. This week we're going waaaay back to the 1950s for one of the most famous television half hours of them all: "Job Switching," from "I Love Lucy" season 2, coming up just as soon as I show you the creases on these silk stockings... "Job Switching," which first aired in 1952, is by far going to be the oldest episode we do in this series (unless "The Honeymooners" magically starts streaming before the summer is out), and I'm going to be very curious for your reactions to it. Ken Levine occasionally will do posts where he asks his readers what they think of vintage sitcom episodes, and the reaction tends to be mixed, and leaning more towards negative among people who didn't grow up in one of the previous peak periods for multi-cam comedy. In terms of sitcoms that have »

Acting icons Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi headline hilarious Britcom “Vicious”

26 June 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

With same-sex partnerships becoming more accepted in real life every day, it only makes sense that that would also be reflected more frequently in art. And the more such couples are seen through the lens of a film, or a TV show, the more it will serve to show that such couples are no different from male-female couples: They live day to day, they love and they bicker. That is certainly the case for Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), the protagonists of Vicious, a hilarious British series that makes its U.S. debut June 29 on PBS. Freddie and … Continue reading →

Artists Recreate They Live in Downtown L.A.

24 June 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

It's amazing how John Carpenter's They Live has found a new life. When I saw the film in '88, I was hard-pressed to find anyone who embraced it like I did and would want to talk about it. Now? It has officially gained cult status and has become the subject of fan art, t-shirts and masks. That speaks to the power of Carpenter's message in the film. It's just as relevant today as it was in '88. Now the film has served as the inspiration for an "art installation" - meaning, artists Stephen Zeigler and Calder Greenwood took one of those aforementioned The Live masks, slapped it on a dude in a suit and embedded him in the business district of downtown L.A. for a photo shoot in which a bus bench and newspaper stand ad were replaced with some familiar, straight-forward commands.
