Top Five Movies of the Summer

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen with his top five movies of the summer…

5. Godzilla

Celebrating 60 years of destruction, the King of the Monsters made his return to the big screen in this American reboot to the classic series. Godzilla saw Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as a husband and wife duo who are trying to reunite after The Big G shows up and starts tearing through cities chasing after alien-like creature M.U.T.O.

Director Gareth Edwards clearly loved the classic Godzilla movies from the character’s 50s and 60s heydays as the movie was a call back to those films. It had a slow, methodical pace and it focused on the human characters and their dramas while Godzilla fought in the background as the ever looming presence and metaphor for nuclear war. Sadly, the movie only takes our fifth spot here as the human element (including »

Toronto fest declares Sept. 5 'Bill Murray Day'

21 August 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In a show of apparent elation that the festival could track down Bill Murray and slate his new film, "St. Vincent," as a showcase presentation, the Toronto Film Festival has gone all out and set aside an entire day of programming centered on the actor. Friday, Sept. 5 has officially been declared "Bill Murray Day." Screenings of three of Murray's classic comedies will carry the day: Ivan Reitman's "Ghostbusters" and "Stripes" as well as the late Harold Ramis' "Groundhog Day." "St. Vincent" will bow as a world premiere later that night. In addition, a contest will be held to reward Murray fans who attend all three screenings: up to 50 of them will be granted a ticket to the "St. Vincent" premiere. All of the Murray screenings, including the "St. Vincent" premiere, will happen at the Tiff Bell Lightbox. So, if you're planning to attend the fest and you don't »

21 August 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“It’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.” It may be hard to believe, but it’s already been 30 years since Dr. Ray Stantz thought of happy memories that conjured up the towering, walking marshmallow in 1984′s Ghostbusters. The upcoming anniversary celebration keeps getting bigger, as a National Ghostbusters Day has been announced just a few weeks before the new Blu-rays hit the shelves.

Sony is releasing the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray on September 16th. If you’re wondering where the love is for the film’s 1989 supernatural sequel, don’t despair: Ghostbusters II is coming to Blu-ray for the first time via a 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray, also set for a September 16th release. Here are the official special features for each release:

The Pcc To Show Robin Williams Double Bill

21 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Every film fan that lives in or around London knows all about the Prince Charles Cinema. Located in the Leicester Square region of the capitol the cinema screens popular new indie releases as well as a how heap of retrospective screenings.

We at Thn practically live within its walls and who can blame us when they do crazy things like a Jurassic Park triple feature and an Arnold Schwarzenegger all-nighter. They also have a rather nifty little quiz that happens every month and is a must for film fanatics in the capitol (click here for more information).

It is always a sad affair when a big name of Hollywood passes away but the Pcc always endeavour to make sure that the actor or actress is properly remembered. When Harold Ramis passed they had a rather inspired Groundhog Day double bill, that’s right Groundhog Day played twice in a row. »

Bill Murray is an American comedy icon. But Canada has beat the U.S. to the chase in giving the star of such beloved movies as Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters and Stripes his very own day of honor. Well played, Canada. Well played. The Toronto International Film Festival has officially declared September 5th Bill Murray Day to pay tribute to the man, the myth, the legend. On Bill Murray Day, Tiff will screen the three classic Murray comedies mentioned above for free. Tickets will be available 8 am on September 5 at the Tiff Bell Lightbox box office. Ivan Reitman's military comedy Stripes will kick off Bill Murray Day (I really like the sound of that) at 10Am. Next up, Groundhog Day, helmed by the late, great Harold Ramis, will play. Then completing the free portion of Bill Murray Day, Reitman's Ghostbusters will play/bring the house down. Tiff teases that special »

20 August 2014 6:31 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In fact, the festival is not only premiering his latest and much buzzed about "St. Vincent," but will also be screening his comedy classics "Ghostbusters," "Stripes" and "Groundhog Day" for free. Tiff will also be awarding fifty lucky fans attending those screenings with a ticket to the world premiere of "St. Vincent" on the same day.  Tiff runs from September 4-14.

Ranking 2014's summer blockbusters from worst to best

16 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The summer blockbuster season isn't what it used to be. We no longer have to wait until July for Hollywood's epic spectacles, with studios now lining up their tentpole releases as early as March - this year we saw the likes of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in theatres before the calendar had ticked over to May.

With The Expendables 3 out in cinemas now and pretty much bringing the curtain down on the summer's biggest releases, Digital Spy has flicked back through the calendar to rank this summer's box office big guns from worst to best.

13. The Expendables 3

Despite an ever-expanding cast list that hoovered up Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas, Sylvester Stallone's third Expendables outing landed with more of a whimper than a bang. Franchise favourites like Jason Statham and Dolph Lundgren were criminally underused, leaving us »

Edge of Tomorrow Starring Tom Cruise Blu-ray 3D Release Date and Details

14 August 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt experience the ultimate case of deja vu in Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, a well-received Sci-fi alien invasion action flick with a Groundhog Day twist that was the victim of a horrid marketing campaign in North America. Here's hoping the second time's a charm when Warner Home Video delivers Edge of Tomorrow to Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD on October 7, with an early Digital HD on demand bow on September 9.

Edge of Tomorrow cost an estimated $178 million to produce and never found its footing at the box office despite a rash of glowing reviews from the nation's critics. A $28.7 million opening weekend fell well below estimates, and to date it has yet to cross the $100 million mark, sitting at $99.3 million. International ticket sales have helped to the tune of $264.1 million bringing its worldwide total to $363.5 million.

There will be two editions of Edge of Tomorrow on Blu-ray, »

This Short Film Shows the Existential Danger of a Night Out

11 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why Watch? At the opening of this short film from Michael Dibiasio, a young woman (Rebecca De Ornelas) obsessively tucks her hair behind her ear, gets a text message and then tentatively heads for her front door. It’s a sequence that becomes overbearingly familiar as she experiences a series of hollow social encounters filled with literally blank faces. Where Groundhog Day set out to make repeated sequences entertaining and fresh, Multiverse uses quiet echoes for an opposite, alienating effect. Coupled with an agoraphobic’s eye view of abjectly meaningless jaunts into generic parties and bar scenes, we get to share in her angst to the point where tossing on some stretchy pants and staying in feels like a damned fine idea. The editing also aids the disconnected feeling — shooting us from the doorknob straight into the middle of a crowd — and the cinematography keeps focus on De Ornelas while almost always framing her slightly off-center (not »
