’50 to 1′ is an unearned lap to victory

21 August 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

50 to 1

Written by Faith Conroy and Jim Wilson

Directed by Jim Wilson

USA, 2014

Imagine, if you will, a horse race that starts and finishes in a blink of an eye. We see your choice winner bucking behind the starting gate. His chances of winning are slim to none, fifty to one in fact. You may not know anything about the horse, but you like the sound of his name on the program, and figure you can make some nice cash from a long shot. The gate opens and your horse bellows out the door. Immediately cut to the first bend and he is trailing behind the team. Now, immediately cut to the last and he strides to the finish line by a large margin. Victory is yours, but to what fulfillment? Sure you’re happy that your horse won, and heck, you might have made a serious winning. You probably »

David Foster -- Whitney Houston Had Bad DNA

18 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Mega-music producer David Foster says Whitney Houston's deteriorating voice was not the result of drug abuse ... she was just saddled with bad DNA.Foster knew Whitney's highs and lows better than most.  He produced some of her tracks from "The Bodyguard," including "I Will Always Love You."Foster is almost shockingly candid in the video ... in so many words saying she didn't have much of a voice for most of her career.What's really interesting ... he seems to think, »

Bart & Fleming: On Robin Williams And Empathetic Star Send-Offs

17 August 2014 10:42 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business.

Fleming: I had the dubious honor this week of writing our Robin Williams obit. Well actually it was more of a news story than, say, the obit of Lauren Bacall that came a day later. I found it a soul-sucking experience, leaving me the same empty feeling as when we published similar pieces on Tony Scott, Paul Walker, Whitney Houston, James Gandolfini, Corey Monteith and Michael Jackson. Juggling hard news with empathy in reporting a tragic loss of one so brilliant is the recipe for an awful day.

Bart: The suicide of a figure like Robin Williams always forces an editor to make a painful distinction: There’s a difference between a celebrity and a mythic figure. A celebrity gets a respectful obit. »

Witness The Kevival: Costner Returns In ’3 Days To Kill’

26 June 2014 2:59 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You’ve heard of the ‘McConaissance’. Well now another movie star considered past his best makes a high profile return to the big screen, as Kevin Costner toplines kinetic thriller 3 Days To Kill.

Though associated with a sequence of megabuck flops, Costner has been one of Hollywood’s true risk takers. It paid off in Oscars for Dances With Wolves (1990), where he did everything except sing the theme tune. Roles in hits such as The Bodyguard (1992) followed. But after Clint Eastwood’s A Perfect World (1993) came Waterworld. Throwing money at a sea-based knock-off of Mad Max was never going to set the box office alight, more give it a drenching. The Postman (1997) actually had Costner singing the theme tune and that failure appeared to round off his career as a big leading man. Yet the movies never forgot about Kev and in recent years he’s been rediscovered, with prestigious »

Is Kevin Costner Hollywood's most underrated movie star?

21 June 2014 1:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kevin Costner is back on the big screen this week in action-thriller 3 Days to Kill. It's not a classic Costner film by any stretch (he's essentially playing Liam Neeson in Taken), but the film is arriving right in the middle of a career revival for the actor who headlined big hits two decades ago. With Man of Steel, Draft Day, Jack Ryan and 3 Days all under his belt over the last 12 months, we're experiencing something of a Costnaissance (to swipe a term coined for Matthew McConaughey).

As a screen star Costner was never blessed with dynamic range or the ability to transform himself like a Daniel Day-Lewis can, but what he can deliver is a performance of earnestness and honesty that connects with an audience. He is frequently the glue that holds a film together, a movie star with the everyman appeal of someone like James Stewart. If anything, Costner »

Whitney Houston's New Jersey Home Sold to Fan for $1.5 Million—See Pics!

5 June 2014 9:24 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Sold! Late iconic singer Whitney Houston's former New Jersey home, the site of her wedding to Bobby Brown, was recently been bought by a fan for $1.5 million. The 12,561-square-foot mansion was built in 1992, state tax records show.  That year, the buyer, a 33-year-old emergency care doctor and real estate investor named Matthew Krauthamer, was in elementary school and Houston was enjoying international success thanks to her biggest hit, a cover of "I Will Always Love You," from The Bodyguard. "I'm very conscious of preserving what she created there," Krauthamer, who described himself as a "big fan" of Houston, told NJ.com last week, days before Zillow.com reported on June 2, »

Angela Bassett To Direct ‘Whitney Houston’

23 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Actress Angela Bassett has been signed up by Lifetime to tell the story of Whitney Houston for the small screen. The late singer was no stranger to the movies herself, appearing most notably in The Bodyguard alongside Kevin Costner and having sporadic success with films such as The Preacher’S Wife with Denzel Washington. Bassett has form for musical biopics  – she played Tina Turner opposite Laurence Fishburne’s Ike in What’S Love Got To Do With It? She also worked with Houston herself on Forest Whitaker’s Waiting To Exhale in 1995.

The Sanitsky Co. are producing. They clearly like Bassett as they worked with her on their previous real life drama Betty & Coretta, where she appeared with another musical presence, performer Mary J.Blige. The Houston project will be her directorial debut and focuses on Houston’s turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown, presumably leading up to her accidental death »

My guilty pleasure: The Bodyguard

29 April 2014 6:37 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The rommiest of all romcoms shows Whitney Houston at the beginning of her greatness plus it has one of the best head-shaking snogs in film

More from My guilty pleasure series

The Bodyguard. What's not to like? This is not just your average romcom. There's glitz and glamour, swearing, sex and, most importantly, Whitney's in it. This is Whitney Houston at the beginning of her greatness. I Will Always Love You, a song central to the soundtrack, became one the bestselling singles of all time. (The film-makers had originally wanted to use What Becomes of the Broken Hearted, which is unthinkable, really.)

Here's the basic plot: Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner) is a secret service agent hired to protect world-famous actress and artist Rachel Maron (Houston). With danger looming, Frank moves in with Rachel's family in a bid to keep them safe, turning their lives upside down.

Frozen Ost spends tenth week at Us No.1, equals Lion King record

16 April 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The soundtrack to Disney's Frozen has spent a tenth non-consecutive week atop the Billboard 200 chart.

The accompanying album becomes one of only 11 albums to have topped the Us chart for ten weeks or longer, and it has now equalled The Lion King's record for an animated film.

The Lion King spent ten weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 back in 1994, while Whitney Houston's The Bodyguard held the top spot for 20 weeks and Titanic for 16 weeks.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, the Frozen Ost sold 133,000 copies in the week ending April 13, bringing its total sales to 2.1 million.

Last month, Frozen became the highest-grossing animated film of all time.

The Disney movie recently reached $1.072 billion at the worldwide box office, beating the previous record-holder Toy Story 3 ($1,063bn).

3 Days to Kill murders Kevin Costner's charisma at the Us box office

• More Us box office analysis here

Kevin Costner's waning appeal

He had a small but significant role in last summer's hit Man of Steel, but Kevin Costner has shown that these days he cannot be relied upon to carry a movie. The last time he headlined a movie was in 2008, with the lighthearted drama Swing Vote, which earned $16.3m (£9.72m) at the box office. That same year Costner starred in The New Daughter. What? Exactly. So it came as little surprise to see Costner's latest, 3 Days to Kill, debuted at No 2 on $12.3m (£7.38m). Suddenly the $55m (£33m) final gross of seafaring action-adventure The Guardian, which was hardly a massive achievement back in 2006, begins to look relatively impressive. Historically Costner headline movies have never opened strongly, »
