‘Spectre’ Star Andrew Scott Joins Rachel Weisz in ‘Denial’

9 December 2015 6:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Andrew Scott, who starred as “C” in “Spectre,” has joined Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall in the cast of “Denial.” Bleecker Street recently acquired the North American distribution rights to the film, which started to shoot in London this week.

Screenwriter David Hare (“The Reader,” “The Hours”) adapted Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier,” which recounts Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust Denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove that the Holocaust happened.

Scott, who won a BAFTA for playing Moriarty in “Sherlock,” will play lawyer Antony Julius. The supporting cast includes Caren Pistorius (“Slow West”), Jack Lowden (“War and Peace”), Alex Jennings »

23 years ago today, Disney’s ‘Aladdin’ opened in theaters

25 November 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

23 years ago today, Disney continued its renaissance with the release of “Aladdin,” and Abu, Aladdin, Jasmine, the magic carpet, and the Genie quickly found their way into Disney fans’ hearts. Part of an era for the House of Mouse that’s known as the Disney Renaissance, the movie that showed us a whole new world was released between 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast” and 1994’s “The Lion King.” It was the film that started the trend that continues to this day: Celebrities dominating voice acting in animated films. Before the late Robin Williams lent his winning energy to the Genie, voice acting was almost exclusively in the realm of people specifically trained to provide voices for animated characters. Though our favorite street rat-turned-prince got his name in the title, the Genie is the character audiences really responded to, and that continues today: He’s the most memorable part of the »

Kasdan To Depart "Star Wars" Franchise

11 November 2015 5:02 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan ("The Big Chill," "Body Heat") has proven to be an essential part of the "Star Wars" franchise since penning the screenplay for "The Empire Strikes Back" back in 1980.

He then went on to pen "Return of the Jedi" and has since been an integral part of filmmaker J.J. Abrams' upcoming resurrection of the 'Wars' universe with "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" next month.

Now Kasdan, whose credits also include the script for "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and "The Bodyguard" amongst many other notable films, says that he's done with the "Star Wars" franchise once he wraps up his commitment to work on the script for Phil Lord and Chris Miller's 2018 Han Solo spin-off film.

Speaking with German tabloid Bild, Kasdan is quoted as saying: "I have now made four Star Wars movies. That's more than enough." Kasdan also revealed he didn't have any interest »

The X Factor 2015: Watch Lauren Murray kick off the live shows with a Whitney Houston classic

31 October 2015 2:26 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Lauren Murray has kicked off X Factor's live shows with an energetic cover of Whitney Houston's 'I'm Every Woman'.

Originally recorded by Chaka Khan, the classic pop hit was recorded by Houston for The Bodyguard soundtrack - and Lauren was ecstatic when mentor Rita Ora told her she would be performing it.

Her exuberance impressed all four judges, with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini saying: "Ever since we met you, you've wanted to sing Whitney. This felt like your dream come true and you know what? That's the most confident first live show perfomance I've seen, so well done."

"That was seriously fantastic, what an amazing, amazing vocal," said Simon Cowell.

"I think the so-called dancing was a bit clumsy, so that's something you're going to have to work on. Having said that, it is a singing competition... and it sounded like it was your record. It was a brilliant start. »

14 times similar movies went head to head at the box office

Deep Impact Vs Armageddon is not the only time similar movies have landed around the same time...

Usually, a competing project is poison for a studio. Especially in the era now where a blockbuster costs the national budget of a small country to get out into the world, you don't want to be up against a film with similar subject matter.

Yet this keeps happening, time and time again. Even now, there are two live action Jungle Book movies in various stages of production, for example. And let us not forget when K-9 and Turner And Hooch once did battle...

But how have the movie showdowns of old turned out? And are there any instances where everyone's a winner?

Er, not many as it happens...

The Haunting Vs The House On Haunted Hill

Let's start with two reasonably budgeted horror films, that both got wide releases. Jan De Bont »

Listen To Composer Alan Silvestri’s Score For The Walk

25 September 2015 11:37 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

An impossible, but true story, the new film from Robert Zemeckis, The Walk is a live-action, PG-rated entertainment for all audiences, ages 8 to 80. A love letter to the World Trade Center, the film is a 3D and IMAX visual experience, unlike anything audiences have seen.

On August 7, 1974 – the day before Richard Nixon announced he would be resigning from office – Philippe Petit, a French aerialist, surprised the city of New York with a high-wire walk between the towers of the almost-completed and partially occupied World Trade Center. Passersby without a moment to spare stopped in their tracks and looked up. They saw the impossible: a man dancing high in the sky, seemingly in the thin air.

Now, forty years later, Zemeckis – one of cinema’s most accomplished filmmakers at integrating technology in the service of emotional storytelling – is putting moviegoers in Petit’s shoes. The Walk, an epic, big-screen cinematic spectacle, »

Could an appearance on “Lip Sync Battle” be in Tom Hardy‘s future?

Field Of Dreams revisited: why it still hits me every time

13 July 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

1989's Field Of Dreams might just be Kevin Costner's finest hour. So why does the film still manage to hit so hard?

"We just don't recognise life's most significant moments while they're happening. Back then I thought, 'well there'll be other days'. I didn't realise that that was the only day."

It's a useful piece of advice that's given to writers, that you need to put something on the line if you want a piece to really work. That you need to put some, and ideally a lot, of yourself into it.

Brace yourselves, I'm afraid. I make no promises that the quality of what you're about to read is much cop. But I can tell you that Field Of Dreams is an immensely important and rich film to me, one that hits me, and hits me hard every time I watch it. I think that it reinforces too »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect.

‘Empire’: So Who’s the Daddy?

On last night’s Empire, boos ran away, baby mamas came back, and for a minute there, I was wondering if Madea was going to pop up out of nowhere to tell Lucious about her mixtape on DatPiff. It was entertaining for sure, but a little crazy even by this show’s standards. Gather ‘round, though, beloveds, we must talk this out.

1. Why didn’t Cookie know anything about bipolar disorder?

Considering Cookie’s spent a considerable amount of time in prison, she missed a lot of important things: Destiny’s Child; Destiny’s Child’s breakup; Destiny’s Child second breakup; Beyoncé proving she is literally destiny’s child as a solo act; Destiny’s Child getting back together; everyone in Destiny’s Child going back solo. She also seemed to miss that episode of Oprah in which actress Jenifer Lewis aka everyone’s Black mama »
