Top 5: Conspiracy Thrillers

11 April 2014 1:33 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Conspiracy films can captivate an audience in surprising ways, and Hollywood has a long tradition of bringing these theories to life. In the upcoming film Pioneer, director Erik Skjoldbjærg explores a real life Norwegian big oil cover-up that includes murder, extortion, and diving in the North Sea.

In celebration of Pioneer‘s release today, we are counting down six of the best conspiracy thrillers.

5. Shutter Island (2010)

Perhaps better known for violent-gangster films than conspiracy theories, Martin Scorsese teamed up with Leonardo DiCaprio for the fourth time to stunning effects. Using conspiracy-theory tropes unapologetically, Shutter Island turns the genre on its head and questions the nature of conspiracy theorists within our society.

4. The Insider (1999)

Focused solely on their shareholders, corporations will often go to morally extreme lengths to maximize profits. There is perhaps no better instance of this than within the cigarette industry, where companies denied the harmful effects of cigarettes for years, »

‘Soaked in Bleach’ Trailer: The Kurt Cobain Death Conspiracy Docudrama Starring That Guy From ‘Lost’

8 April 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We’ve already had one great documentary spinning theories about Kurt Cobain‘s death (Nick Broomfield’s Kurt & Courtney) and one great dramatization of the last days of the Nirvana frontman (Gus Van Sant’s Last Days), but now there’s a (possibly great?) movie coming out that combines both approaches. Today is the 20th anniversary of when Cobain’s body was found dead, so of course the first trailer for this new docudrama has just arrived online. Titled Soaked in Bleach, it combines interviews with people associated with the case, including private detective Tom Grant, with reenactments featuring actors such as Lost‘s Daniel Roebuck as private detective Tom Grant. Others in the drama side’s cast play Cobain (Tyler Brian), Courtney Love (Sarah Scott), Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson (Kale Clauson), Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan (Tor Brown), Butthole Surfers singer Gibby Haynes (David Daskal), Earth front man Dylan Carlson (August Emerson) and a character »

We introduce the new show 'Ask Drew' and we need your help to make it work

31 March 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The video team here at HitFix constantly impresses me with not only the volume of work that they produce, but also the quality. We've gotten very lucky with the people we've hired, and they make any of our collaborations both easy and fun. Last week, they approached me about a new ongoing feature that they wanted to do, and tomorrow, we're going to shoot the first episode of "Ask Drew," which is exactly what it sounds like. I am constantly asked questions via e-mail and Twitter and in our comments section, and I feel like I never fully answer all of them, something that makes me feel terrible. I am grateful for each and every reader of the work we do here at HitFix, and if I can answer something, I try to. To that end, we are going to try something a little different here starting tomorrow. I want »

DVD Review - Parkland (2013)

30 March 2014 11:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Parkland, 2013.

Directed by Peter Landesman.

Starring Zac Efron, Tom Welling, Colin Hanks, Marcia Gay Harden, Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Giamatti and James Badge Dale.

Synopsis:

Set during the days that immediately followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Peter Landesman’s Parkland examines the impact felt by those directly involved in the shocking event. In his adaptation of Vincent Bugliosi’s novel, “Four days in November,” Landesman concentrates on the implications the shooting caused; changing the lives of the people affected forever.

Many of us have seen the famous “cine-film” footage of that fateful day, November 22nd 1963, when the then President of the United States of America, John F. Kennedy, was shot dead. That footage was filmed by Abraham Zapruder (played by Paul Giamatti) and from the moment he began filming, he would forever be known for that piece of film. Jim Carrico (Zac Efron) was the Doctor to »

Interview: Paul Giamatti talks about Parkland

7 March 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Paul Giamatti talks about Parkland...

Director Peter Landesman credits Paul Giamatti’s involvement in Parkland as one of the key reasons that Abraham Zapruder’s family – consistently silent until now – agreed to collaborate with his film.

Landesman had reached out persistently to the relatives of Zapruder, the man who had witnessed the shooting of JFK through the lens of his little 8mm camera, but was turned away on numerous occasions.

“I’d go back to them and say, ‘no, really we want to tell his inner story.’ And there’d be silence. So I’d go back again because I just didn’t want to take ‘no’ for an answer,” says the director.

“I was starting to think that it would never happen, but then, when Paul Giamatti agreed to play Abraham Zapruder, we were able to present them with one of the finest actors of our generation – or of any generation for that matter. »

Special Features - In Memory of John Candy

4 March 2014 12:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe remembers John Candy....

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the passing of comedic legend, John Candy. One of Canada’s most successful film and TV exports, Candy rose through the TV comedy circuit in Canada alongside contemporaries like Rick Moranis, Harold Ramis (sadly no longer with us now), Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy. Throughout his film career, Candy would continue working on and off with many of the stars he rose with.

Candy has remained a popular figure, both among the audiences who grew up in the 80’s on a staple diet of his comedy films, and from new audiences who rediscover such greats as Planes, Trains and Automobiles. What really made Candy stand out, more than just his physical size and presence, was the warmth and likeability the man projected in virtually every character he played. Often playing the bumbling fool with his heart in the right place, »

Harold Ramis, comedy legend behind 'Caddyshack,' 'Ghostbusters,' and 'Groundhog Day,' dies at age 69

24 February 2014 1:03 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

With his sly, Cheshire cat grin and twinkling, half-mast eyes hidden behind owlish glasses, Harold Ramis always gave the impression of a guy who was guarding the punchline to the world’s funniest joke. And it’s quite possible he was. After all, if anyone had the merry-prankster genius to conceive it, polish it into a jeweler-precise gem, and deliver it with crack comic timing, it was Ramis, who passed away early Monday morning at age 69 from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves the swelling of blood vessels.

Although Ramis became a familiar face on both »

Kevin Costner Facts: 17 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the '3 Days to Kill' Star

21 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Kevin Costner is the "All-American Man" and the world loves him for it.

From "Dances with Wolves" to "The Untouchables" to "JFK," one simply needs to watch Costner's filmography to capture the essence of America and understand its past. Let's face it, the man stars in Westerns and baseball-related movies like he's contractually obligated.

It all started over 30 years ago, when Costner got his first break in Lawrence Kasdan's "The Big Chill" and, while his part was eventually cut, the director didn't forget him. After getting cast in Kasdan's next project, "Silverado" -- a Western, of course -- the actor's career took off and helped make him the international talent he is today.

Even if you're familiar with Costner's work, there's still some mystery about the well-established actor. From his surreal encounter with Richard Burton to his musical endeavors, here are 17 things you probably don't know about Kevin Costner. »

The Irishman, with De Niro, Pacino, and Scorcese, is happening

19 February 2014 1:00 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt, The Irishman has been a movie lovers dream ever since it was announced a couple of years ago, bringing director Martin Scorcese together with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci to tell the true life tale of Frank Sheeran, an alledged assassin for the Italian Mob whose wild claims include that he murdered Jimmy Hoffa and that the assassination of JFK was a mob hit. While nothing about the project is concrete, De Niro, who is reportedly playing Sheeran, has been quite vocal about it, letting slip details about it a few months back on The Graham Norton Show. In a recent interview with art publication Flatt, the actor talked about the project yet again, saying, "We have been trying to do the film for the last few years, and I think we will do it »

Kevin Costner is one of those actors who you tend to forget has been a part of some truly remarkable films. From Dances With Wolves to Bull Durham and even JFK, the man has an impressive career. With his strong performance in last year’s Man Of Steel, it is great to see that the actor is back in the spotlight. And with this weeks 3 Days To Kill, he plays a hired killer who must take on one last job to save his own life. Sitting across from this iconic actor/director was a »

Can historically inaccurate movies still win Oscars?

30 January 2014 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Most of this year's Oscar contenders are based on historical events – and there are academics waiting to pounce on every slip-up and blunder. But there is more to a great movie than getting the facts straight

• Top 10 biopics

Alex von Tunzelmann's Reel History series

It's Oscars time again, and this year many of the big contenders have one thing in common. Two thirds of the contenders for best film are based on historical events. History also picks up four out of five best actor nominations, two out of five best actresses, and three out of five directors. So fierce has the competition among historical films become that it was reported that academic "history assassins" were paid handsomely by marketing consultants to spot errors in other studios' films. These errors would then be filtered out subtly through blogs, undermining rivals' Oscar hopes.

Oliver Stone Out Of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Biopic Due To Controversial Script

20 January 2014 12:58 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sad news. My Mlk project involvement has ended. I did an extensive rewrite of the script, but the producers won.t go with it.. Oliver Stone (@TheOliverStone) January 17, 2014 Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, everyone! It is on this day we remember a civil rights leader who wasn.t afraid to be outspoken about his dreams for equality in this great nation. And no one knows visions of equality better than director Oliver Stone, as his film JFK certainly attested. (Sarcasm, folks!) Those who were hoping for Stone.s take on King.s life, with Jamie Foxx potentially starring, will be disappointed to know that the project is now dead in the water, as the film.s producers have turned down his script rewrite. Announced by Stone himself via his Twitter page, the news is far from surprising, though one has to wonder if it was DreamWorks or Warner Bros. »

Oliver Stone Drops Off the Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic Over Disagreement with King's Family

20 January 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In October, with the success of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln still bright in their minds, it was reported that DreamWorks and Warner Bros. were in talks with Oliver Stone and Jamie Foxx to direct and star, respectively, in an untitled Martin Luther King Jr. biopic. The project had been lingering in development since 2009, but it seemed like the drama about the African-American civil rights leader’s rise to power and his 1968 assassination would finally come to pass. Spielberg had signed on as a coproducer, and Stone, of course, is no stranger to historical tales with the praise and controversy of his JFK and W. being well documented. But plans have recently changed. On the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the director announced that he is no longer writing or...

Berserk Adaptation Coming With Huge Names Attached?

19 January 2014 1:52 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It was many years ago when I first became familiar with Kentaro Miura's anime Berserk. Actually I was playing Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage on the Sega Dreamcast. A violent warrior swinging a giant sword against hordes of demons? I was hooked! Perfect fodder for a movie.

According to IMDb (so that this with a grain of salt as they're rarely reliable) a movie is coming in 2017 with an impressive list of directors... Christophe Gans (Silent Hill, Brotherhood of the Wolf), Oliver Stone (JFK, Platoon, Natural Born Killers) and Nicolas Winding Refn (Only God Forgives, Drive, Bronson) - apparently all collaborating on the project which was originally conceived as a manga from Kentaro Miura.

Stuart Beattie (I, Frankenstein, 30 Days of Night, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) worked on the screenplay.

In the adaptation, “The Epic of Guts, a dangerous barbarian who joins »

Oliver Stone Leaves Martin Luther King Jr. Film, Complains on Twitter

19 January 2014 7:00 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After learning last fall that director Oliver Stone was slated to take on a biopic about famed civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., with Jamie Foxx taking the lead, the Wall Street and JFK director has fallen away from the project due to creative difference. Stone announced his falling out with the project on Twitter, and proceeded to explain why producers didn't want to go with his extensive rewrite of the script. And it turns out the reasoning seems to be that with the involvement of King's family on the film, they're trying to go with a more glossy version of the icon's life, which is why they didn't go with Paul Greengrass' plan for a "warts and all" portrayal in his stalled project Memphis. Now Stone is in the same boat. Read on! Here's the full collection of tweets that Stone posted on Twitter yesterday ranting about »

For a second year in a row -- and this is looking like how it's going to be from now on -- the Golden Globe winners have been revealed ahead of the Oscar nominations have not yet been announced. The Oscar nominations come this Thursday morning while Thursday night the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca) will announce the winners of the 2014 Critics Choice Awards on Thursday night followed by the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday. So, yeah, it's time to start looking at these things even closer. As I have done for the last several years, today I offer my eighth installment of my "Globes vs. Oscars" column (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013) and we'll take a look at the past 29 years of Golden Globe winner history compared to the Oscars and see where last night's winners may gain an edge and where they most likely won't and we'll begin with the lead acting categories. »

And while some have a connection through their famous parents, others, such as Laura Dern (who happens to have famous parents), are also connected through their own work. Don't believe us?

5 Amazing Things We Learned About Kevin Costner On The Set Of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

7 January 2014 1:49 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Since making his debut on the big screen in the 1980s, Kevin Costner has become one of the most iconic screen presences of the modern era. Thanks to his work in both Field of Dreams and Bull Durham he is the first actor many think of whenever the topic of baseball movies comes up, and roles in movies like The Untouchables, Dances With Wolves and JFK will be remembered forever. He has spent decades on the roller coaster that is Hollywood, and it was fascinating to listen to him talk about all of it while on the set of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit back in late 2012.
