The Collision: Episode 83 – Late Night Television

14 April 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

This week on The Collision, we talk about the changing face of late night television.  Leading off with a discussion about Stephen Colbert replacing David Letterman as a host of The Late Show, we then continue to look at how late night has changed over the decades, turned into "morning after" viewing with clips and sketches geared towards clicks on the internet, the attitude and personality of late night hosts, and more.  As always, we finish up with our recommendations.  Also, I apologize for some of the sniffling you'll hear during this episode.  I suffer from spring allergies.

‘Heaven Is For Real’ Review: You’ll Believe a Boy This Cute Can’t Lie

14 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Greg Kinnear is the perfect actor to star in Heaven is for Real, an adaptation of the nonfiction best-seller of the same name. The guy from Flash of Genius and Little Miss Sunshine is the one you want for another character struggling in life and trying to convince people of something. He has sad eyes but a charming smile. And in movies like this, no matter how you feel about the message at its core, you’ll like the person he’s playing and want him to succeed. If Tucker: The Man and His Dream or Field of Dreams were remade today, Kinnear would be a great choice to play either’s protagonist. Heaven is for Real is actually quite reminiscent of the latter. It’s set in the Midwest farmlands and deals with a man about to lose everything, it involves a father/son relationship and, most importantly, it involves the afterlife. Yet »

Film Review: ‘Draft Day’ is Daft, Except as an NFL Infomercial

11 April 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Kevin Costner has defined a career in sports themed movies. From the Iowa farmer building a baseball diamond in “Field of Dreams,” to “Bull Durham,” to “For the Love of the Game,” he exemplified game day heroics. Yet being an NFL executive in “Draft Day” isn’t quite as exciting.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The problem with this film’s story is like the problem with the NFL – they’ve gotten so rich and powerful they lose perspective on “it’s just a game.” By creating a domestic drama centered around an over zealous day of drafting college players, they’ve gone as far away from the tradition of tough guys like Vince Lombardi as a 90 yard field goal attempt. It’s no good! Note: I have a slavish devotion to the sport as entertainment – Go Bears! – I just didn’t like the film.

In Draft Day, on the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life-changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL. Recently, Wamg sat down with Kevin Costner in a press conference where he spoke to members of the media about his new role in Draft Day, Field Of Dreams, and how affected he was by Rock Hudson in Giant. Check it out below!

There’s a line in the movie where you say, “What do you want?!” Is this a direct reference to Field Of Dreams where you at one point said, “What do you want? »

Draft Day | Review

11 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Final Draft: Reitman’s By the Numbers Sports Drama

Director Ivan Reitman leaves behind the realm of rom-com for a masculine about-face with the football drama, Draft Day, which, as you can rightfully assume, takes place on the eponymous day, its clock kicking off thirteen hours before the grand finale. Screenwriters Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph takes deliberate pains in dumbing down the behind-the-scenes process that goes on, which will certainly help engage complete strangers to the realm, though this is hardly a realistic inside look at anything more than your conventional sports drama about a down-on-his-luck dude who manages to outsmart everyone despite dubious popular opinion.

The countdown to Draft Day has begun, and this year, Seattle holds the number one pick as well as the current top star, quarterback Bo Callahan (Josh Pence). However, the Seattle manager, Tom Michaels (Patrick St. Espirit) thinks he can oversell Callahan to a desperate team, »

Draft Day

10 April 2014 9:06 PM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

If you read an outline of Draft Day it might strike you as formulaic and overlong, because it is…yet somehow it still works. Director Ivan Reitman—the same man who gave us Ghostbusters thirty years ago—steers an expert cast through its paces, with Kevin Costner in a tailor-made leading role. The actor has had good luck with sports stories dating back to Bull Durham and Field of Dreams, and this one continues his overall winning streak in the genre. Costner plays the much-abused general manager of the Cleveland Browns whose standing with fans and continued employment are in jeopardy on the day of the NFL draft pick. His father, a beloved coach, has just died, and his girlfriend...

Forecast: 'Rio 2,' 'Captain America' Could Both Reach $40 Million This Weekend

10 April 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Animated sequel Rio 2 could cruise to around $40 million this weekend, which would put it in a close race for first place against Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Meanwhile, Draft Day and Oculus are targeting more modest debuts.Captain America: The Winter Soldier set an April record last weekend with $95 million. Most comic book movies fall hard in their second weekends: similar movies Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World fell 58 percent and 57 percent, respectively. Captain America has better reviews and stronger word-of-mouth, though it would still be surprising if it dropped less than 50 percent. Playing at 3,948 locations, Rio 2 could give the Captain a run for its money. The first Rio opened to $39.2 million around the same time in 2011, and ultimately closed with a solid $143.6 million. While it was well-liked enough, its reputation doesn't seem to suggest a huge bump for the sequel.Rio 2 shifts the action »

Watch Kevin Costner Play Catch With Himself

10 April 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | MTV Movie News | See recent MTV Movie News news »

Kevin Costner loves sports. The star, who plays a football general manager in the new movie "Draft Day," has long been a staple in sports movies. While we're sure he likes football, it's clear his greatest love of all is baseball. After all, he starred in "Field of Dreams," "Bull Durham" and "For Love of the Game." So naturally, we wondered: What would it be like if all of his baseball-playing characters had a catch? ...

Talking ‘Draft Day’ with Kevin Costner and Jennifer Garner

10 April 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On the day of the NFL Draft, general manager Sonny Weaver Jr. (Kevin Costner) has the opportunity to rebuild his team when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in pursuit of perfection as the lines between his personal and professional life become blurred on a life changing day for a few hundred young men with dreams of playing in the NFL. Directed by Ivan Reitman, Draft Day also stars Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary and Ellen Burstyn.

Kevin has your instincts of who you are and what you have brought to this game shifted since you first started?

Kevin Costner: My whole life has been instinctual for me. I wouldn’t do well in a computer world, my children look at me for a question then quickly look away because they know I don’t know anything about Super Mario. »

'Bull Durham' vs. 'Field of Dreams': What's Kevin Costner's Best Sports Movie?

9 April 2014 10:31 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

It wouldn't be a proper Kevin Costner renaissance without a sports movie on his docket, and fortunately there's one such addition to the actor's resume opening this Friday.  Following his turns in superhero and action movies in the past year, Draft Day puts Costner in an NFL-set drama. Outside of conversations his characters have in Swing Vote and Three Days to Kill, this is actually his first foray into football territory. Mostly he's known for baseball movies, with two in particular being the fan favorites: Bull Durham and Field of Dreams. Released a year apart, they're quite different in spite of their shared pasttime, the former a love story and the latter a fantasy. When we polled users on Twitter for the answer to which is the best, though, Durham...

Draft Day’s Kevin Costner On Power of Movies & Racism

8 April 2014 6:27 PM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

Acting and directing for Kevin Costner isn’t just a day job, but a passion that started as a child when he learned valuable lessons from movies like Giant starring Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor. The Draft Day star often uses the medium to tell powerful stories including in his next film which deals with racism in America.

Kevin Costner (Fields of Dreams, Tin Cup, Bull Durham) stars in yet another movie revolving around sports in Draft Day with Jennifer Garner and Dennis Leary. It’s no surprise since the Lynwood, CA native grew up with sports as a football, baseball and basketball player during his youth and in college. However at a recent press event with the actor, Costner says to look beyond the setting and see that it's really not about football but the "age-old thing about people who love each other but can't seem to get it together. »

Spotlight on the Stars: Kevin Costner

8 April 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we go with another installment of my Spotlight on the Stars series. Each week, I’ll look at an actor/actress/filmmaker that I’d like to celebrate in some kind of a way. It could be due to something of theirs coming out that weekend (like last week and this week, for example) or just because I feel they deserve to have a moment in the sun, but each time it’ll be a bit of positivity about someone who I’d like to pay tribute to. For this week’s piece (number three overall so far), I wanted to take a look at our first male actor…Kevin Costner. Some see him as a bit of a has been, but I disagree and not only still see a movie star, but an underrated actor as well. Costner is a throwback to an older generation of actor. Very »

Kevin Costner Talks Draft Day, His Career, What We Can Learn from the Movies, How Giant Influenced His Outlook on Life, and More

7 April 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Kevin Costner brings gravitas and believability to his role in Draft Day as Sonny Weaver Jr., the hard-pressed general manager of the Cleveland Browns who finds himself in what seems like a no-win position on the most important day of his life.  Facing pressure from all sides, he must quickly decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in order to stay in the game as the lines between his personal and professional life begin to blur.  Opening April 11th, the film directed by Ivan Reitman also stars Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary and Ellen Burstyn. At the film’s recent press day, Costner turned introspective as he looked back on his career, the films he’s made, and the movies like Giant that have inspired him.  He spoke about his conviction that Draft Day can become a new sports movie classic, how he lives off his intuition and passion, how his »

Kevin Costner on 'Draft Day,' His Sports Movie Legacy, and Getting Back Behind the Camera

7 April 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Full disclosure: I'm not the biggest fan of sports movies.

In fact, I'm not a big fan of sports in general, except maybe baseball. But put Kevin Costner in a movie about one of America's many pastimes and my story changes. After all, this is the guy who starred in two of the best baseball movies of all time: "Bull Durham" and "Field of Dreams." I even liked the third part of his unofficial "baseball trilogy," "For the Love of the Game."

Now, the actor is tackling (pun intended) football in "Draft Day" as the general manager of the NFL's Cleveland Browns, the man in the unenviable position of making the team's first-round draft pick. He's also dealing with a girlfriend (Jennifer Garner) who's got some big news, a coach (Denis Leary) who wants his job, and an owner (Frank Langella) who wants his hide. Hell, even his mother (Ellen Burstyn) kicks him around. »

Why No Decade Did Baseball Movies Better Than the '90s

7 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A good sports flick brings heart, friendship, and bravery to the big screen, and the many baseball movies of the '90s had all that and more. Sure, there have been plenty of moving, iconic baseball films from other decades - Field of Dreams and The Natural to name a few from the '80s - but the baseball movies of the 1990s arguably hit it out of the park. Along with the rookie of the year, we also met Kit and Dottie Hinson, Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez, and of course, the angels in the outfield. In honor of baseball season finally being here, enjoy a blast from baseball movies past with the best '90s films about America's favorite pastime. Source: 20th Century Fox View Slideshow › »

John Ostrander: Whore To Culture And Other Working Relationships

6 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’m over at Facebook a fair amount. I use it not just for friends and family, people I actually know, but also as a way to keep in touch with fans which I think is important. I try to give them a good personal experience with me because I value them; their support enables me to make a living as a writer. Some publishers have an interest in hiring me because they know I have my own fanbase.

So I post things and answer questions or notes – sort of like at a Con – and it’s nice. Most of the fans are very respectful; sometimes, maybe a little too respectful. There have been those who refer to me as “master”. I appreciate it as a token of respect but, to be honest, I’m uncomfortable with it. To my mind, I’m just a working guy and my work happens to be writing. »

Can These 7 Stars' Careers Be Saved by April Movies?

5 April 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

April is the cruelest month, and not just for T.S. Eliot.

At the multiplex, throughout April, we're in for a brutal, Darwinian survival test for several A-list stars of yesteryear -- from Kevin Costner to Nicole Kidman to Jude Law -- all of whom are currently on the comeback trail. Some of them may end the month on their way back to their former glory, and some will see their careers shredded even further.

Here are our best guesses as to who will thrive and who will starve.

Nicolas Cage

Last Big Hit: 2013 cartoon "The Croods" (starring voice role); 2009 drama "Knowing" (leading role)

Comeback Effort: Drama "Joe" (April 11)

Prospects: Cage is earning the kind of acclaim he hasn't seen in years for delivering a real, non-cartoonish performance in this rural drama as the title ex-con, who becomes the unlikely mentor to a teen (Tye Sheridan) in need of adult guidance. »

Robin Williams Has 90 Minutes To Live In The Angriest Man In Brooklyn Trailer

4 April 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite a juicy role as Dwight D. Eisenhower in Lee DanielsThe Butler last summer, Robin Williams has been largely absent from the spotlight for a few years. That’s all about to change though with his new film Boulevard hitting Tribeca this month and the first trailer for another Williams project, The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, arriving on the web today.

Williams stars as Henry Altmann, the titular character, who is wrongfully told by a doctor (Mila Kunis) that he’s managed to frustrate through constant yelling and needling that he has a brain aneurysm that will kill him within an hour and a half. Shocked out of the bitterness that has consumed him for much of his adult life, Henry begins a race against time through New York City to make amends with all the loved ones he has driven away, including his brother, wife and estranged son. »

Trailer: "The Angriest Man In Brooklyn"

3 April 2014 8:59 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Phil Alden Robinson ("Field of Dreams," "Sneakers") returns to the director's chair over a decade since his last film, "The Sum of All Fears," to helm something quite different - a real-time high-concept comedy starring Robin Williams as a manic jerk.

The premise has Williams playing a man so obnoxious that his doctor (Mila Kunis) snaps and tells him he has only 90 minutes left to live. Thus he begins a mad scramble to set things right with family and friends before his time is up.
