Watch: The Director of 'Criminal' Is In Awe of His Accidental 'JFK' Reunion

26 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you've never seen JFK before, watching it will probably blow your mind a little bit. Not because of its swirling conspiracy theories (it also doesn't matter if you believe any of it-- the drama of it all is simply fantastic), but because its cast is simply unbelievable. You basically can't go 10 minutes of watching JFK without going, "Wait, this person is in this, too?!" And that's saying something considering JFK is approximately 10,000 hours long. It is an all time great cast. The JFK cast is also huge, which is why it's understandable that director Ariel Vromen didn't even realize he had cast a JFK reunion when he was putting together his own twisty thriller, Criminal. Kevin Costner stars as an inmate implanted with a CIA agent's...

Director Oliver Stone doesn't approve of Pokemon Go

"It's what people call surveillance capitalism," director Oliver Stone says of hit mobile game Pokemon Go...

One of the more unusual movies at San Diego Comic-Con was Snowden, director Oliver Stone's forthcoming film about controversial whistle-blower, Edward Snowden. One of the few movies at Comic-Con that isn't fantastical or superhero-based in some way, Snowden stars Joseph Gordon Levitt as the former CIA employee who leaked an enormous amount of previously classified information onto the web.

During the panel discussion for that film, Stone brought Niantic's hit mobile app into a broader conversation about online surveillance. Warning of a "new level of invasion" into our private lives thanks to search giants like Google, Stone argued that "Pokemon Go kicks into that."

"It's not for profit at the beginning but it becomes for profit at the end," Stone added, "because it creates its own awareness and it gets »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Hunted in New Trailer For Oliver Stone’s ‘Snowden’

21 July 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

History was made today as Oliver Stone had his first appearance at Comic-Con and, aside from waxing poetic about the dangers of Pokemon Go and how it could lead to totalitarianism, he brought with him a new trailer for his latest feature, Snowden. While we already have Laura Poitras‘ Oscar-winning Edward Snowden exposé Citizenfour, this one finds Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing the whistle-blower.

Diving into his time before the major events, when he served the country by enlisting in the United States Army Reserve and then working for the CIA, it marks Stone’s first time shooting digitally, rather fittingly. With a cast also including Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richardson, and Timothy Olyphant, check out the new trailer and poster below:

‘Snowden’ Trailer: Oliver Stone And Joseph Gordon-Levitt Take Down The Nsa

21 July 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oliver Stone hasn’t made a movie since 2012’s critical and box office disaster “Savages,” but you should never count out the Oscar-winning provocateur. This September, the filmmaker finally returns to the big screen in the same political firecracker mode that has given him some of his most blazing and timeless classics, from “Platoon” to “Nixon” and “JFK,” and this time around he’s gunning for the Nsa with the true story of Edward Snowden.

Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as one of the world’s most controversial whisteblowers, “Snowden” tracks the eponymous hacker’s rise from failed Special Forces trainee (he was discharged after he broke both of his legs) to CIA hotshot and ultimate betrayer.

Oliver Stone Says ‘Pokemon Go’ Is ‘Surveillance Capitalism’

Oliver Stone participated in his first even panel in the massive Hall H in the San Diego Convention Center Thursday — and when the Q&A session was opened up to the audience, somebody of course asked him about “Pokemon Go.” “Pokemon Go” is, as we all know, the mobile augmented reality sensation in which players walk around the real world using their phones to find and capture Pokemon. It has drawn a massive and obsessed following — and players have been all over the place at Comic-Con. But Stone, the director of “Wall Street” and “JFK,” sees it not just as a. »

Highlighting Can’t Miss Comic-Con Panels

12 July 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What caught my eye in the massive schedule breakdown.

I’m trying to remember when nerd culture became the zeitgeist of my era… I imagine it all started with the moon landing, it being one of the greatest awe-inspiring events in human history, exponentially heightened by a medium — TV — that allowed for nearly the entire world to partake in the moment together. That was a huge win for nerds, even if the idols created from it — Armstrong and Aldrin — were hunkier and jockier than the scientists and mathematicians in the background that made it all possible. Bill Gates is the epitome of a nerd, but yet he’s super-successful; he gave Earth a device that enables me to watch pornogra… I mean, study the teachings of Jesus Christ whenever and wherever I want; and he’s infamous for his business acumen and dominating, competitive zeal. Reading comic books was always an endeavor undertaken by nerds and nerds »

Ivan Reitman: Why We're Still Talking About 'Ghostbusters' 30 Years Later

6 July 2016 7:23 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Comedy may be the most subjective of genres, but Ivan Reitman knows what the people want. Over the course of his 40-plus-year career as a director, producer, and writer, the Slovakia-born/Canada-bred filmmaker has been a key player in some of Hollywood's most iconic comedies — Animal House, Meatballs, and Stripes among them. But few films have amassed as passionate a following as one particular hit: Ghostbusters.

Originally conceived of as a space-set ensemble piece and starring vehicle for Dan Aykroyd (who wrote it) and John Belushi, the horror-comedy-sci-fi-family-film hybrid eventually »

We celebrate the 4th of July with ten films that define America in 2016

4 July 2016 8:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've done this exercise before, and some of the same films made the list this time, but not all. America in 2016 is different than the America of 2002, and that's part of what I love about this country. And make no mistake... I love this country. I believe America is a nation defined by contradictions. I am both cynical and idealistic about it, and I love it precisely because of the ways it breaks my heart. I am fully aware that one can only exist because of the other. With that in mind, here are ten films that, taken together, define the state of our union in the year 2016.          The Right Stuff Philip Kaufman’s movie celebrating the accomplishments of the Mercury Seven astronauts is more than just a celebration of the pioneer spirit. The film is a gorgeous dream, a poem about heroism and celebrity and ego and optimism. The »

Why I Can’t Love Brian De Palma (Though I’ve Always Wished I Could)

26 June 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back when I was a kid, and a lot more naïve about how the motion picture industry works, I had expectations of filmmakers that were completely unreasonable in their very reverence. If I saw a masterpiece, and then placed the person who directed it high atop my superstar pedestal of art heroes, I longed for him or her to go forward and make 10 or 20 more masterpieces (hey, why not!), and I always felt keenly disappointed if it didn’t work out that way. It was hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that even a movie as enthralling and visionary and apparently brilliantly orchestrated as “The Godfather” or “Nashville” was, among other things, a kind of fantastic accident: a coming together of elements that even the director isn’t always (or ever) in full control of.

But when it came to the art heroes who let me down, »

Why Oliver Stone Is Still Hopeful About The Power of Movies After The ‘Nightmare’ of Making ‘Snowden’

26 June 2016 11:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oliver Stone would be the first person to tell you that the power of cinema is ephemeral — “beautiful ephemera,” in his own words, but ephemera nonetheless — but that doesn’t mean the filmmaker behind such landmark films as “JFK” and “Born on the Fourth of July” doesn’t also believe that movies can leave their mark on the world.

Stone is all over this year’s Nantucket Film Festival, where he was honored over the weekend with the festival’s prestigious Screenwriters Tribute Award. At the Saturday night event, Stone accepted his honor from fellow filmmaker Bennett Miller, before using his acceptance speech as a time to reflect on his career and what’s next.

It was a fine warmup for Sunday morning’s main event, during which Stone took to the stage of Nantucket High School to participate in an hour-long “In Their Shoes” chat as led by documentarian Eugene Jarecki. »

Film Review: ‘The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble’

9 June 2016 3:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The fabled Oscar-winning documentary “From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China” (1980), which followed Stern as he taught the children of Communist China to play — and love — Western classical music, captured a new kind of synergy between the West and the East. In “The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble,” a documentary directed by Morgan Neville (who made the Oscar-winning “20 Feet from Stardom”), musicians from all over the world join the legendary cellist to form a virtuoso ragtag band, and they create a joyful noise — a percolating life force that’s equal parts klezmer and Bollywood, with maybe a hint of disco. The instrumentalists, who hail from Spain, Syria, Japan, Iran, and other nations, are so at home with global musical fusion that they might almost have been among the Chinese teenagers taught by Isaac Stern — and, in fact, one of them was (we see »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: Invasion of the Body Snatchers

6 June 2016 8:31 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 This time we have a film which has been remade multiple times. However, we’re choosing to focus on the best of those remakes. This week, Cinelinx looks at Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978).

 This often adapted story is based upon a three-part serialized story by Jack Finney which appeared originally in Colliers Magazine in 1954. It was expanded into a novel called “The Body Snatchers” in 1955.The first film version came out in 1956, and is considered one of the truly great sci-fi films. It has been remade three time, in 1978, 1993 and 2007. This article looks at the 1956 and 1978 movies because they are clearly the best of the four. Body Snatchers (1993) is just mediocre and the Invasion (2007) is just a mess. The other two are classics.

 The 1956 version was written during the Cold War ‘Red Scare’, when the public was constantly reminded by our government to keep vigilant of Communist infiltration. This »

Joe Pesci unlikely to appear in Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman

19 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having finally reached a deal to bring The Irishman to the screen at Cannes after a fierce bidding war, Martin Scorsese’s plans for his long-gestating adaptation of Charles Brandt’s bestselling book I Heard You Paint Houses have suffered a setback, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that there’s a big question mark over the involvement of Joe Pesci.

According to the site, Pesci – who has not appeared on screen since 2010’s Love Ranch – has “repeatedly has told Scorsese no” with regards to appearing in the project, which will star both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. However, the article also states that the director “remains hopeful” that he can convince his Goodfellas star to come out of retirement for the movie.

The Irishman follows the “biggest mob hit in history” and will see De Niro as Frank Sheeran, who on his deathbed claimed to have killed Jimmy Hoffa, »

'The Irishman': Will Joe Pesci Work With Martin Scorsese Again on New Mob Film?

18 May 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Without a doubt, Goodfellas ranks up there as one of the best mobster flicks ever to hit the big screens. With its engaging story, gritty realism, and incredibly off-kilter -- characters, it manages to hold up as an entertaining classic of cinema. Of course, the film was directed by filmmaking master Martin Scorsese, who has re-visited the mob film a few times since Goodfellas.

Scorsese is once again returning to the genre with the upcoming film The Irishman, which just locked down Stx as the movie's international distributor. The movie is written by Gangs Of New York writer Steve Zaillian, and is set to star Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino -- two more all-time greats.

One of the big questions, however, is whether or not Joe Pesci will be in the film. Pesci won an Oscar for his role in 1990s Goodfellas, but despite that, he's kept his number of roles in movies relatively low, »
