2011 in Movies: The Year of Looking Backward

31 December 2011 8:00 AM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Looking back on 2011, we should have seen it coming. The growing re-obsession with ’80s brands in entertainment. Facebook reconnecting old friends and classmates. YouTube rising to prominence and providing the means to relive memorable moments. Digital music making it virtually effortless to rediscover classic tunes. Nostalgia just became a major part of our lives, at a time when perhaps the present wasn’t the easiest. Naturally, pop culture has corrected itself to capitalize, which is maybe why most movies this year felt so recycled.

The summer season looked like someone had a yard sale for comic books and the best ones were kept tucked away. Thor. Captain America. Green Lantern. Wait, X-Men! Only it’s a new, “first” class set in the ’60s, sans favorites like Wolverine. Earlier, The Green Hornet?

Meanwhile, Real Steel made things used and rusted feel… used and shiny. We all learned a valuable lesson from The Help’s age-old wisdom, »

Charles Saatchi: My love affair with Orson Welles

29 December 2011 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Hollywood's treatment of Citizen Kane's maker is no surprise from an industry that gives Oscars to so many dud films

• Charles Saatchi's 109 movies not nominated for best picture

How do you handle failure? I handle failure very badly. Bitterly. Indignantly. Girly tears. I once saw a three-hour BBC interview with Orson Welles, and if it is possible to fall for a man just from seeing him on the telly, Mr Welles has had me as his love slave since.

Welles had manifold reasons to be bitter about life's setbacks, not the least being that his unquestioned prowess as a film-maker didn't stop Hollywood treating him like a disease. After years of having to panhandle for backing to fund his film projects – all unwanted by the studios, all later to be recognised as exquisite jewels – he eventually had to rely on appearing in TV commercials, endorsing wines or Spanish sherry, »

The underappreciated film gems of 2011

15 December 2011 6:28 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As the world puts together its ‘best of 2011’ round-ups, we salute the films that deserve just a bit more love than they’re getting...

Next week, we’ll be bringing you our film of the year round-up, as voted by the many people who contribute to Den Of Geek. Of course, democracy has its problems, in that it means that some lesser-seen films don’t tend to gravitate up such lists, and with that in mind, we wanted to take some time to salute the many cinematic treats that many not be winning all the awards and the plaudits come end of year round-ups, but really deserve seeking out.

In alphabetical order, then...

Intelligent, atmospheric and thought-provoking: it’s remarkable just how much director Mike Cahill managed to achieve in this low-budget debut feature. Brit Marling delivers a vulnerable and honest performance as Rhoda, a young girl whose »

All Tom Cruise Needs Is Kill Joining Doug Liman's Military Sci-Fi

2 December 2011 4:49 PM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

It's eighteen months since director Doug Liman jumped aboard All You Need Is Kill, but the fact that it's still a going concern has just been confirmed by the report that Tom Cruise is close to signing as its star.

Based on a Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, for which Warners paid an astronomical sum in early 2010, All You Need is Kill involves a soldier killed in action fighting aliens and then inexplicably having to re-endure his final battle until he gets it right. It's Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers! It feels afraid again and again.

It also, obviously, bears some superficial similarity to this year's Source Code. But with Cruise currently working on One Shot and expected to then move into Oblivion, and Liman hoping to be busy in the near future with Luna, it could well turn out that by the time Kill goes before the cameras, let »

Tom Cruise to Star in Doug Liman’s All You Need is Kill

2 December 2011 10:12 AM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Tom Cruise is looking to return to sci-fi action genre in a big way over the next couple of years. After signing on to star in Joseph Kosinski's Oblivion back in May, he has now also reportedly been cast in Doug Liman's All You Need is Kill, a movie based on the novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Described as "Groundhog Day meets Starship Troopers," the book revolves around a soldier who dies fighting a war against aliens and finds himself caught in a time loop where he is forced to relive his final day over and over again. Warner Brothers had been in search of a big name to anchor the film since they reportedly paid $3 million for the script last year. Although the story calls for a younger actor (the studio originally wanted Ryan Gosling or Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the lead) it has since been rewritten to suit Cruise's age. »

Cruise Set For Liman's "We Mortals Are"?

2 December 2011 6:12 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

He was linked two months ago, now Tom Cruise is reportedly committing to Doug Liman's sci-fi war film "We Are Mortals" at Warner Bros. Pictures reports Deadline.

Based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's 2004 novel "All You Need is Kill", the story follows a new recruit sent out to fight off an alien invasion and finding himself in a Groundhog Day-esque scenario of dying on the battlefield and being reborn each day.

Five months into this cycle though, he notices something different than the previous versions - a female soldier who may be the key to his escape. Dante Harper adapted the script which Joby Harold has re-written.

Scheduling issues are still being worked out. Cruise, who is currently shooting Christopher McQuarrie's "One Shot", will likely film the project after he stars in Joseph Kosinski's scorched earth sci-fi epic "Oblivion" for Sidney. »

Casting News: Tom Cruise Confirmed for All You Need is Kill; Ender's Game Casts Haillee Steinfeld, Targets Harrison Ford

2 December 2011 12:56 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

In October, we reported that Warner Bros. was trying to talk Tom Cruise into accepting a role in the adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's novel, All You Need is Kill. Looks like the convincing worked.

Deadline reports that Cruise has officially committed to the role of a futuristic soldier fighting a war against an alien race who gets killed in action. In a Groundhog Day twist of fate, he is reborn every day to repeat his final day, slowly realizing that there are difference in the repetitions and that he be able to change his future.

All You Need is Kill earlier reported to have the unfortunate title, We Mortals Are, but now thankfully back to it's original title, is one of two sci-fi projects Cruise is attached to. After finishing the action/thriller adaptation of One Shot this fall, Cruise heads into production of Tron: Legacy next year. However, »

Tom Cruise to star in new sci-fi film with a 'Groundhog Day' twist

1 December 2011 4:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Tom Cruise has certainly been sci-fi happy as of late, signing on to "Tron: Legay" director Joseph Kosinski's futuristic romance "Oblivion"/"Horizons" (the project, which rising star Jessica Chastain recently boarded, has been called by both titles at different stages of its development) back in May and now "All You Need Is Kill", an alien-invasion film about a military recruit who is forced to relive the day he was slaughtered in battle against an army of extaterrestrial intruders over and over again (essentially a sci-fi twist on "Groundhog Day"). The screenplay by Dante Harper ("Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters") was bought by »

Tom Cruise Set to Prove Repeatedly That ‘All You Need is Kill’

1 December 2011 3:41 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

A story has been making the rounds today that Tom Cruise is more than likely set to star in director Doug Liman’s next venture, a sci-fi film called All You Need is Kill. Variety says that the star has been courted for the role for a while and seems to be poised to take it, while Inside Movies claims that the deed has already been done and the papers are all signed up, so no matter who you believe, it’s looking like this will be a project coming, at least eventually, to a theater near you. All You Need is Kill is set to be adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, and the story sees Cruise’s character caught in a Groundhog Day-type time loop where he lives the same day over and over again, but with a slight twist.

Tom Cruise To Star In Doug Liman’s All You Need Is Kill

1 December 2011 11:22 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In a post-Harry Potter and soon to be post-Chris Nolan directed Batman world, Warner Bros are just desperate for new tentpoles (see The Twilight Zone movie we just spoke about) and they are aggressively moving forward with many a potential new project. One they have been keen on adapting more than most is Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s novel All You Need Is Kill which they paid a princely $3 million for the film rights too last year, quickly attaching Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Jumper) to direct, and they have been desperate to land an A-list star to justify the money and effort they have put behind it.

Their first choice was Brad Pitt but he turned them down. We then heard in October they wanted Tom Cruise and after several weeks of deliberation (Liman even flew to the set of the currently filming One Shot to convince Cruise to sign »

Tom Cruise Out to Prove ... All You Need Is Kill

1 December 2011 11:06 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

As a means to ensure that Akira isn't the only adaptation on its way to being excellent, Warner Brothers is bringing in some really big names to breathe life into the Japanese novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, All You Need Is Kill.

According to Variety Tom Cruise has agreed to star in the flick based on the graphic novel, whose story is in the vein of Groundhog Day with a twist: A soldier in a war against aliens finds himself reliving his last day over and over after being killed. Through the training and battles he experiences in these time loops, he becomes a better soldier.

While a deal with the studio isn't officially signed, Cruise has been weighing this role for some time after continued talks with director Doug Liman.

Sources say Warners' Jeff Robinov always wanted a big star, though the script called for a younger actor like Ryan Gosling or Joseph Gordon Levitt. »

Tom Cruise's New Gig

1 December 2011 10:03 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Turns out, if you need something done, Tom Cruise is your man.

According to Variety, Cruise has agreed to star in "All You Need Is Kill," rescuing the film from movie purgatory, where it has been for many months.

The very un-John Lennon title, "All You Need Is Kill," marries the concept of "Groundhog Day" with an alien war story. (Huh?)

Based on a graphic novel, the movie is said to follow a solider who is killed by alien enemies and finds himself reliving his final day over and over, gradually becoming a better solider.

Apparently, Cruise has been vying for this role for quite some time. (Who wouldn't be!)

Film execs for "Kill" had hoped to get a big star to headline the movie, but thought the script called for a younger actor like Ryan Gosling or Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The script has already been reworked to reflect Cruise's age. »

Tom Cruise agrees to star in Japanese sci-fi novel adaptation, All You Need Is Kill

1 December 2011 9:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warner Bros’ forthcoming adaptation of Japanese sci-fi novel All You Need Is Kill, a kind of Groundhog Day/alien invasion mash-up, may be headed up by Tom Cruise

As the Akira live-action remake ploughs on, Bourne Identity and Fair Game director Doug Liman is readying his own adaptation of a Japanese property: in this instance, Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s novel, All You Need Is Kill.

Now, Warner have been planning a western version of the book for just over a year, but Liman was only attached as director in August. Now, though, it seems as though the project’s moving along in earnest, with Variety reporting that Tom Cruise has agreed to star.

We haven’t read the source novel for ourselves, but it sounds intriguing; written for a young adult audience, the short novel sounds a bit like a cross between an alien invasion story and Source Code. Its protagonist »

All Tom Cruise Needs is Kill

1 December 2011 8:40 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Looks like Tom Cruise is jumping feet-first into the sci-fi epic arena. With a starring role in Joseph Kosinski’s “Oblivion” (aka “Horizon”) coming up next (he’ll have to wrap the Jack Reacher movie “One Shot” first), Cruise has now officially attached himself as the star of “All You Need is Kill”. The movie, based on the novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, would find Cruise playing a green army recruit in the far future who joins up during a time of war. Humanity is fighting a seemingly unstoppable alien species that intends to wipe them out and colonize the Earth. In a “Groundhog Day” twist, the recruit finds himself stuck in a time loop where he wakes up in the same day after being killed in battle. And like Bill Murray’s character in that film, after some trial and error, the recruit eventually grows as a soldier with each battle, »
