Marc Alan Fishman: Man Of Steel, Heart On Sleeve

15 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

No doubt those of you who troll the Internets or saw The Hobbit were privy to the new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel. My Facebook feed was deluged with tons of praise, mirth, and, most scary to me… hope. Maybe it’s being in the company (and five-a-day e-mail chains) of Mike Gold, but color me doubtful. Not that Mike isn’t anything short of a ray of sunshine mind you… but I digress; I’m none-to-impressed with the footage. That is to say, I didn’t see anything that makes me less uneasy about the future of the Dcu on film.

Before I get into the nitty gritty, let me first state: the trailer looks good. Great even. There’s a metric ton of things to like about it. Much like it’s Darker-Knightier cousin, the film embraces a realism that the House of Mouse is way to scared (or smart, »

Disney Blu-ray Roundup: ‘Finding Nemo’ a must-own, while ‘Odd Life of Timothy Green’ a mild charmer

3 December 2012 9:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The holiday shopping season is in full swing, and just in case you were hoping Walt Disney Pictures wouldn’t add to the burden on your wallet, I hate to, but have to disappoint you. With three more shopping weeks left until Christmas Day, they’ve got two new Blu-ray/DVD combos for our perusal, The Odd Life of Timothy Green and Finding Nemo, both of which were among their big early-fall releases. Of course, the Pixar entry was getting a 3D re-release after its original 2003 release, but still, it’s a notable release because now you can finally claim ownership of every Pixar feature film.

I almost feel bad for not wholeheartedly loving The Odd Life of Timothy Green, an extraordinarily sincere and earnest family film about a childless couple who, one night, discover that their wishes and prayers to become adoptive parents has come true in the form »

10 Actors Who Stupidly Turned Down Iconic Roles

20 November 2012 2:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

When actors reach the end of their careers and look back on all that they achieved, it’s unlikely that many of them will be able to look out without at least a couple of mistakes rearing their ugly heads (unless we’re talking about Gary Oldman of course). For various reasons actors occasionally have to take on roles that end up being stinkers – to pay their mortgage perhaps, or because of the substances they might have taken to make their nights more entertaining, or simply because their agent was a filthy liar who convinced them of the most ludicrous of things – but it’s the roles that they missed out on that will probably really stick with them.

The annals of cinema history are riddled with stories of actors who almost played infamous roles, only to be dropped at the last minute, or during filming, or who chose consciously »

‘Citadel’ combines urban paranoia with urban decay

8 November 2012 7:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Citadel

Written and directed by Ciaran Foy

Ireland/UK, 2012

Every time you walk down a dark alleyway, you’ve felt it. Every time you’ve waited for the bus late at night, you’ve felt it too. Every unsolicited knock on the door, tap on your shoulder, distant chorus of laughter, and sudden hush of silence, you’ve felt that feeling course through your body: that intrinsic and deep-seated fear of the unknown and the unseen. In an urban setting, these feelings are ever-present and persistent, and in Ciaran Foy’s Citadel, they’re expertly amplified and actualized.

The story follows a man named Tommy (Aneurin Barnard), a single father inflicted with a severe case of agoraphobia after his wife (Amy Shiels), who was pregnant at the time, was attacked and killed by a gang of hooded delinquents. At his wife’s funeral, the priest (James Cosmo) warns Tommy that »

"Survivor" Recap: The Un-Blairable Lightness of Being

1 November 2012 6:54 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Oh, yes. Sweet yes. Survivor jumped to the merge this week, brought together a heap of disagreeable, aloof players, and forced them into a prickly, weird-ass tribal council that left everyone looking pretty stupid. This? This is my heaven. Wednesday's episode was undoubtedly the most entertaining of the season, and I'm not just saying that because one of my least favorite people was banished (along with her cream-colored pantsuit from an abandoned Talbot's outlet). It wasn't just that. But it was a lot that.

Plus, plenty our favorite players kept being great. And a couple of beleaguered contestants outsmarted some heavy-hitters and earned our respect. Let's reinspect the episode's greatest hits.

Can I still be gay and marry the hell out of Denise?

The hardest-working, hardest-losing contestant on Survivor maneuvered her sinew in a winning fashion this week, destroying her competitors in an immunity challenge that amounted to the following »

Top Ten Tuesday: Friendly Ghosts

29 October 2012 10:59 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From Japanese ghost stories such as Ringu (1998) and Ju-on (2002, remade as The Grudge) to modern revisionist ghost stories such as Brad Anderson’s Session 9 (2001) and Ti West’s The Innkeepers (2011), cinematic specters have nearly always been evil, or at the very least, malicious. Scary movies have long held the belief that ghosts should frighten us, and Hollywood had lined their pockets with that notion, but is it possible to make a good movie about “good” ghosts? We think so, and here’s our proof… our Top Ten Movies About Friendly Ghosts.

10. Heart And Souls (1993)

Anything starring Robert Downey, Jr. is worth checking out in my book, but this comedy was surprisingly enjoyable. Downey plays a guy used by four ghosts to reconcile their lives before moving on into the afterlife. The catch is, Downey is less than enthusiastic, but finds himself the catalyst for something bigger than himself and goes along for the ride. »

Best Baseball Movies To See Before The World Series

23 October 2012 5:44 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.” – Field Of Dreams.

No truer words were ever spoken about America’s Pastime. Baseball began this past Spring with 30 teams vying for the chance to become World Champions and now it’s been decided. The San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers will play ball in the 2012 World Series. Before the final hurrah of nine innings, stats, bases and 3 strikes you’re out, Wamg has compiled a list of the Best Baseball Movies. Did we leave any in the dugout or are there some that should be sent to the showers? »

Ivan Reitman's Football Drama Draft Day Gets Put Into Turnaround

17 October 2012 10:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For those of you who were looking forward to Kevin Costner returning to his sports movie roots, with titles like Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, Tin Cup and For the Love of the Game on his filmography, I have some bad news. New reports are saying that because of obligations on the part of both Costner and director Ivan Reitman, the upcoming football drama Draft Day may have to throw the brakes on. Explaining the situation, Deadline says that Paramount Pictures has only a limited amount of time to get the project off the ground because Costner is busy with the Jack Ryan reboot and the Luc Besson thriller Three Days To Kill, while Reitman is still working hard to try and turn the Ghostbusters reboot into something real. Unless they are able to squeeze the production into the impossibly small hole all of the projects create, Draft Day will »

Real-Life 'Field of Dreams' Plan Prompts Dueling Lawsuits

16 October 2012 2:50 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

If you build it, they will sue. Plans to erect an "All-Star Ballpark Heaven" on the same Iowa site used in the 1989 baseball film, Field of Dreams, has prompted a game of litigation. In the movie, Kevin Costner rips up his cornfield to build a baseball diamond and is eventually rewarded for this crazy, financially-draining move by getting to play ball with the 1919 White Sox and his father. In real life, Go the Distance Baseball LLC, a development company run by Denise and Mike Stillman with financial backing from Hall of Fame player Wade Boggs, is

Mila Kunis And Robin Williams On Set In ‘The Angriest Man in Brooklyn’

26 September 2012 2:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The delectable Mila Kunis has teamed up with comedy legend Robin Williams in the forthcoming The Angriest Man In Brooklyn and from the look of these brand new set shots, they’re up for a wrestle in the river and no, that’s not a metaphor. Williams is still class in my book and although he may not have hit those heady heights in recent years, this one could be a lot of fun.

The Angriest Man In Brooklyn is directed by Phil Alden Robinson (Field Of Dreams, All Of Me) and it’s good to see him back behind the camera again. The film tells of the story of a stand-in doctor who accidentally tells an obnoxious patient that he has 90 minutes to live. She then has to hunt him down after her rye comments lead him to tour the city to try and right all the wrongs in his life. »

10 Ways To Spot A Time Traveller

25 September 2012 4:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

This Friday will see the release of Rian Johnson’s eagerly awaited time-travel-mind-screw, Looper.

The film tells of two men, one a modern day contract killer and the other a future version of the former, who come together after one is hired to kill the other. It is a story that is guaranteed to blow your brains out and then dance on the skull fragments.

Johnson will, no doubt, play around with and make homage to the conventions of popular time travel lore, and we can expect to see some very interesting inversions as Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon Levitt duke it out for the title of time lord. But believe it or not, there are actually a series of pre-established ‘cliques’ for this style of niche storytelling.

From Beastmaster 2 to Field of Dreams, most cinematic outings into the world of time travel follow very similar paths. Because of these, »

Trouble WIth The Curve Director Robert Lorenz Talks About The Magic Of Baseball

21 September 2012 8:37 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There is a special relationship between baseball and cinema. Over the last century some of our most timeless films have centered around the sport, which from the outside looks like nothing more than a small ball being tossed around, hit by a wooden stick, and being caught in leather gloves. So what is it about baseball that works so damn well on the big screen? This past weekend I had the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with Robert Lorenz, director of the new drama Trouble With The Curve, and talk about just that. Check out our conversation below in which we talk about not only the cinematic magic of baseball, but his relationship with Clint Eastwood, casting for chemistry, and creating his style in his directorial debut. Baseball really does have an impressive legacy on the big screen. You have movies like The Natural, Bull Durham, Field of Dreams. what »

Trailer for baseball drama, 42

21 September 2012 2:24 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Coming from Payback and A Knights Tale director Brian Helgeland, 42 tells the true life story of Jackie Robinson, who in 1947 became the first black man to play Major League Baseball since the 1880's when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Chadwick Boseman stars as Robinson, and he is surrounded by an impressive cast that includes Harrison Ford, as Dodgers team executive Branch Rickey, Christopher Meloni, and Alan Tudyk. I do have a soft spot for baseball movies, brought on by Field Of Dreams and Major League, and this promises bring some strong drama, and performances our way.   Released: 12th April 2013 (U.S.)/ ? (U.K./Irl)

9 Animal Movies to Make You Weep

12 September 2012 1:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Sad movies exist in every genre. Romance is obviously full of weepers, and plenty of dramas have enjoyed yanking your heart out and showing it to you as you stagger out of the theater. Even an action or sports movie can reduce the tough to tears if done right. ("Field of Dreams," anyone?)

But there's one little genre that seems hellbent on making us cry, and that's animal movies. They're fiendishly clever about it, too, luring you in with promises of being child-friendly, heartwarming and fun before killing off a fuzzy protagonist or two. They're worse than horror movies, because at least horror is honest about the body count.

In honor of taking the plunge (again!) with "Finding Nemo 3D," we here at NextMovie have compiled nine of the most heartbreaking animal weepers in cinematic history. Read it only if you have something soft to hug.

Cameron Crowe’s Say Anything: A Retrospective

22 August 2012 2:29 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

We all know this already, but the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the body that votes for the Oscars, has a tendency to screw up and make horrible decisions. They may not be as bad as the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the body that decides the Grammy awards (Lionel Richie over “Born in the U.S.A.” and “Purple Rain?” Seriously?), but they have their fair share of blunders.

1989 is a particularly glaring example. The Best Picture lineup was lackluster. It comprised of “Born on the Fourth of July,” “Dead Poet’s Society,” “Field of Dreams” and “My Left Foot.” There’s not a necessarily bad film in the bunch, except for the eventual winner “Driving Miss Daisy.” Yet there were several much superior films from that year that should have found themselves in the hunt for the Best Picture prize, like, say, Kenneth Branagh’s powerful interpretation of “Henry V. »

Interview: ‘Nate and Margaret’ Star Gaby Hoffmann on Acting, ‘Girls,’ Chicago

21 August 2012 10:39 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Few performers are lucky enough to make their big-screen debut in a hit movie, let alone two. In 1989, 7-year-old Gaby Hoffmann starred opposite John Candy and Macaulay Culkin in John Hughes’ “Uncle Buck,” as well as shared the screen with Kevin Costner and Burt Lancaster in Phil Alden Robinson’s Oscar-nominee “Field of Dreams.” Not a bad way to start a career.

Over the following years, Hoffmann has worked with acclaimed filmmakers such as Woody Allen (“Everyone Says I Love You”), Kenneth Lonergan (“You Can Count on Me”) and Todd Solondz (“Life During Wartime”). She’s also made a number of TV appearances, and recently starred on the third season premiere of Louis C.K.’s revered sitcom, “Louie.” Her latest film is the award-winning indie, “Nate & Margaret,” which marks the feature directorial debut of Chicago actor and filmmaker Nathan Adloff. The film centers on an unlikely friendship between a 52-year-old aspiring stand-up comedian, »
