Morgan Freeman: 'Christopher Nolan, David Fincher are very different'

19 April 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Morgan Freeman has opened up about the prominent filmmakers who he has worked with throughout his illustrious career.

The Hollywood legend has worked with Christopher Nolan in the Batman franchise, David Fincher in Se7en, Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven and Steven Spielberg in Amistad.

When asked by Collider if there are any common traits with all the directors that he has worked with, Freeman answered: "No. I'll be more explicit here. Great directors are great directors by product, not by process. You work with some great directors that drive you nuts, because they'll shoot 17 or 25 takes.

"There are other great directors who move through a production like s**t through a goose, they just don't stop, they keep moving and they come up with good product. They're under budget and on time, or a little quicker than on time.

"Here, I speak specifically of people like Clint Eastwood. You have Chris Nolan. »

Yes No Maybe So: "Jersey Boys"

18 April 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

From Tommy Lee Jones directing himself and The Swank we turn to another far more accomplished actor-turned-director. Clint Eastwood has won four Oscars in his career from two films (Unforgiven & Million Dollar Baby) but the 83 year old director has had a bit of a rougher run than usual in recent years, critically speaking. He's back with Jersey Boys based on the Broadway jukebox hit about the Four Seasons.

Let's divvy up our reactions to the trailer.

Yes

• There will be a lot of music 

• Counterprogramming in the blockbuster realm of summer movies could help with critical reception so that's a smart move.

• Newish handsome actors in plum star-making position (if the movie is good and they ace it)

Clint went from two-a-year to radio silence for two years. Maybe the time off did him good? This is, the longest break he's ever taking from directing since between The Gauntlet (1977) and »

From director Clint Eastwood comes the trailer for the big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys. The film opens in theaters on June 20th.

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 »

Movie Review - Yurusarezaru Mono, a.k.a. Unforgiven (2013)

9 March 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yurusarezaru Mono a.k.a. Unforgiven, 2013

Directed by Sang il-Lee.

Starring Ken Watanabe, Shiori Kutsuna and Jun Kunimura.

Synopsis:

An aging swordsman is lured back to perform one final job.

Walking into the showing of Yurusarezaru Mono, the remake of the 90s western Unforgiven, with it’s poster echoing the original directed by and starring Clint Eastwood, the question has to be asked whether the sentiments of following another film’s story so closely in a remake can be seen as a positive. Is it just as high an achievement to bend and change details from a film to better fit the original and achieve a good story, as it is to take an original movie and take it to entirely new places?

This film slaves to be as close to the original as possible, with a steely determination to stick to the story that came before it, but there »

Film Review: 'Unforgiven'

5 March 2014 5:59 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆

Released to widespread acclaim back in 1992, Clint Eastwood's Oscar-winning revenge tale Unforgiven is fondly remembered as a valiant last stand by an American movie genre that had been slowly dying a death for decades. The West, as it transpired, had been well and truly won, despite several sporadic attempts to spur the old horse back into life (see Open Range, the Coen brothers' True Grit and, most recently, Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained). Now, 22 years on from Eastwood's original, director Lee Sang-il presents Yurusarezaru mono (2013), a loose remake transposed to nineteenth century Japan. »

We Are What We Are, The Book Thief, Non-Stop: this week's new films

28 February 2014 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

We Are What We Are | The Book Thief | Non-Stop | Ride Along | As The Palaces Burn | Unforgiven | Funny Face

We Are What We Are (18)

(Jim Mickle, 2013, Us) Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner. 103 mins

The story of an archaic backwoods family with very good reasons for their insularity, this spends such a long time laying out its twisted domestic set-up, it's almost as if it's in denial about being a horror movie (remade from a Mexican original). It's a wise decision. If you don't know the family's Big Secret already, it would be a shame to spoil it; let's just say it pulls the story into real shock and gore territory.

The Book Thief (12A)

(Brian Percival, 2013, Us/Ger) Sophie Nélisse, Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson. 131 mins

A smart but syrupy wartime tale that traverses well-trodden territory – from The Reader to Life Is Beautiful – as a young girl is adopted by goodly Germans, »

McConaughey and Leto Poised to Make History on Oscar Night

28 February 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Terence Johnson

Managing Editor

As much as we talk about the stats and trends of the Oscars, each year of the awards seems to present us with a new piece of history. This year, Dallas Buyers Club could make history as the first film to win both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in a film that did not receive a Best Director nomination. While Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto seem to be locked into their wins, this did provide an interesting jumping off point to look at the recent history of this category.

Here are the films in the past 25 years that have managed a Best Actor and Supporting Actor nomination:

1989: Driving Ms. Daisy – Morgan Freeman and Dan Ackroyd

1991: BugsyWarren Beatty and Ben Kingsley/Harvey Keitel

1992: UnforgivenClint Eastwood and Gene Hackman

Thn’s Top Twelve Surprising Movie Remakes

27 February 2014 1:06 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s not often that American films get a foreign language adaptation (it’s usually the other way around), but director Lee Sang-il has taken Clint Eastwood’s revisionist Western, Unforgiven and placed it in Eighteenth Century Japan. We’ll get to watch the critically acclaimed when it comes out in UK cinemas this Friday, but let’s take a look at other surprising remakes of foreign language remakes (and vice versa!).

Title: Yurusarezaru Mono (2014)

Who Made It?: Ken Watanabe stars as a lone former samurai who is drawn back to his violent past when he’s enlisted by prostitutes to exact revenge on a no good John.

There Was An Original?: Yes! Unforgiven, 1992’s Best Picture winner directed by Clint Eastwood. Watanabe took Eastwood’s lead role in the remake, while Akira Emoto makes for an excellent counterpart to Morgan Freeman as his partner in crime.

Stranger By The Lake, Only Lovers Left Alive, Nymphomaniac: this week's new films

Stranger By The Lake | Only Lovers Left Alive | Nymphomaniac | A New York Winter's Tale | A World Not Ours | Stalingrad | The Godfather: Part II | Highway

Stranger By The Lake (18)

(Alain Guiraudie, 2013, Fra) Pierre Deladonchamps, Christophe Paou, Patrick D'Assumçao, Jérôme Chapatte. 100 mins

Sex and death take a synchronised swim in this bold thriller, shot at a single lakeside location. It's a popular cruising spot, and the rituals of its regular (and regularly naked) male visitors are observed with a combination of frankness, lyricism and mischievous satire. But a more mysterious tone takes hold when newcomer Franck sees his Selleck-moustachio'd crush commit a terrible crime. The riptide of desire drags him into a dangerous game.

Only Lovers Left Alive (15)

(Jim Jarmusch, 2013, UK/Ger/Fra/Cyp/Us) Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska. 123 mins

Making Twilight look like Sesame Street, Jarmusch gives us the coolest vampires imaginable – too cool to even do much vampire stuff. »

Nymphomaniac: One Night Stand, Nationwide

That Lars von Trier, he's a naughty one, eh? And befitting its subject matter, his latest grandiose provocation has been preceded by a prolonged foreplay-session of teaser trailers and titillating rumours. Now, for one night only, you can watch both halves of the movie back to back before it goes on release in two halves later this month. Despite being four hours long and sexually explicit, it's far from the sado-masochistic experience it sounds, with digressions into baroque music, fly fishing and dessert forks, and a steady procession of familiar faces including Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Jamie Bell and Willem Dafoe. Afterwards, you'll be rewarded with a satellite Q&A, live from the Curzon Chelsea, in which three of the film's stars – Von Trier veteran Stellan Skarsgård and Britons Stacy Martin »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – February 18th 2014

18 February 2014 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Kind of a good news/bad news situation this week. Bad news for those of us who like to watch sitcoms of 30 minutes in length whilst we eat dinner during the week, Channel 4 has decided to remove most of its good content including Peep Show, The It Crowd and Black Books from Netflix and Lovefilm as of February 15th. You can still watch these online but you have to go through their frankly useless 4Od app which I have never managed to watch a full episode of anything on without it crashing at the bloody adverts. Whilst its admirable that Channel 4 are taking things back in-house, they really need to improve their software first, or maybe they already have because I gave up on it back in 2012 and never finished season two of The Killing.

The good news is that Netflix have debuted season two of political drama House of Cards, »

Japanese Remake of Unforgiven Has an Incredible UK Trailer

13 February 2014 1:30 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This Japanese remake of Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven looks like such an incredible film. I'm a huge fan of the original, and this remake looks like it will be just as awesome. 

The movie is called Yurusarezaru Mono, and it was directed by Lee Sang-il (Hula Girls). Ken Watanabe (Inception) stars in the film as a swordsman who takes a job as a bounty killer.

The story takes place on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido in the 1880s, during a time when Japanese settlers were displacing the native Ainu people. Watanabe plays a samurai with a fearsome reputation as a swordsman who is living in retirement with his Ainu wife when poverty and a large bounty tempt him into action again.

The movie also stars Kunimura Jun, Yagira Yuya, Sato Koichi, Emoto Akira, Koike Eiko, and Kutsuna Shioli. Unfortunately there's still no U.S. release date, but hopefully we get one soon. »

Trailer for the Japanese Remake of Unforgiven Starring Ken Watanabe, Akira Emoto, and Jun Kunimura

13 February 2014 8:07 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. U.K. has posted a trailer for the Japanese remake of Unforgiven.  For those who haven’t seen Clint Eastwood’s 1992 masterpiece, it centers on an old gunfighter who reluctantly joins his former partner and a swaggering hotshot to claim the bounty on two men who attacked a prostitute.  The remake changes the setting to Hokkaido in 1880 and from gunslingers to samurai, but the general plot remains mostly intact.  When I saw the film at Tiff last year, I thought the technical craft was superb, but director Lee Sang-il has trouble figuring out how to significantly separate his picture from Eastwood’s. Hit the jump to check out the trailer, which we posted last year, but this new one now has subtitles.  The film stars Ken Watanabe, Akira Emoto, Jun Kunimura, and Shiori Kutsana. Unforgiven opens in the U.K. on February 28th. »

English-Subtitled Trailer for the Japanese Remake of Unforgiven

12 February 2014 8:01 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

I’ve only seen the Japanese trailer for Lee Sang-il’s “Unforgiven” so far, but even then it looked like a pretty faithful retelling of the Clint Eastwood Western. Here’s the English-subtitled trailer, which was cut for the film’s upcoming UK theatrical release later this month, which is odd, because though it’s based on a very well-known and Award winning Hollywood movie, I don’t think the film is getting any Stateside love at all. Weird. Anyways, the UK trailer confirms my initial conclusion that the remake is very faithful (to a fault, in some cases) to the original. Check it out below, check it outers. For the first time in Japanese cinematic history, an American Academy Award is coming to life. Released worldwide in 1992, Unforgiven, starring and directed by Clint Eastwood, was hailed by critics as a cinematic masterpiece. It was nominated for nine Oscars and bought home four, »
