The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

'Philadelphia' Opens, Tackling AIDS Head-On: Wake-Up Video

23 December 2010 5:30 AM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

The final week of December is always a busy time for the film industry, as it not sees the release of broad populist films (to take advantage of the fact that most people have a bit of down time during the holidays) but also the last of the year's awards bait (so as to get the Oscar buzz rolling right). On this day in 1993, a film opened that seemed to bring together those two universes, as "Philadelphia" hit theaters.

Directed by Jonathan Demme, "Philadelphia" starred Tom Hanks (who was in the midst of ascending to his status as one of the biggest and greatest American actors ever) as a gay lawyer who is fired from his firm because he has AIDS. The film featured a number of excellent performances, including turns from Denzel Washington (as Hanks' homophobic defense lawyer in the wrongful termination suit against the firm), Antonio Banderas (as »

The Silent Army review

21 December 2010 2:47 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

How could anyone dismiss The Silent Army? It's a sensitive film about a deeply troubling real-world issue (child soldiers in East Africa), made by a director who clearly feels very strongly about the subject matter both from a personal perspective (he grew up in the region) and a humanitarian angle (it's the right thing to do).

Well... if anything, perhaps Jean Van De Velde cares a little too much? This should have been a hard-hitting look at the callous savagery of an empty war - two children, one a rural villager kidnapped and press-ganged into fighting for the rebel army, the other a chef's son desperate to save him. Instead it becomes something halfway between Blood Diamond and any random 1980s gung-ho action flick sent straight to video.

Plot points founder under the weight of too much saccharine melodrama, tension ebbs away as the script heads nowhere in particular and »

Spielberg was target of Arab League boycott, WikiLeaks shows

Leaked dispatch reveals diplomats from 14 Arab states voted to ban the director's films in response to his donation to Israel

Steven Spielberg was blacklisted by the Arab League's Central Boycott Office after making a $1m (£570,000) donation to Israel during the 2006 conflict in Lebanon.

A Us embassy memo released by WikiLeaks reveals that during a meeting of the group in April 2007, diplomats or representatives from 14 Arab states voted to ban all films and other products related to Spielberg or his Righteous Persons Foundation.

At the confidential Us briefing, the head of the Syrian regional office for the boycott of Israel, Muhammad al-Ajami, said that Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Kuwait, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen had agreed to ban all Spielberg's works.

Malaysia, Iran, Pakistan and Indonesia were also present at the meeting and voted in favour of the boycott. The »

Keitel Joins Scorsese Dream Line-Up in 'The Irishman'

16 December 2010 9:16 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

After months of speculation, Robert De Niro has confirmed the principal players for what can only be considered a dream line-up for Scorsese fans. De Niro will be joined by Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel in The Irishman, with Steve Zaillian (Schindler's List, American Gangster) penning the script based on the novel "I Heard You Paint Houses."

De Niro spilled the beans to Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman at a Little Fockers party last night. Scorsese is currently finishing up Hugo Cabret, but there's a chance The Irishman will be his next project.

De Niro will star as mob hitman Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, who is reputed to have carried out more than 25 murders. It's currently unknown who the other actors will play. While Keitel and Pesci have frequently turned up in Scorsese films throughout the years, it fascinates me that it has taken this long for Pacino to work with the director. »

Official Plot Synopsis for Steven Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’

14 December 2010 9:11 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

While the 2010 Holiday Movie season has been a little lackluster, 2011 is looking amazing. Sure this year we get a sequel to Tron and a new film by the Coen Brothers but next December alone we get new films from Martin Scorsese, Cameron Crowe, Brad Bird, David Fincher, Guy Ritchie as well as two new films by Steven Spielberg. Slowly but surely, we're learning more about each of those projects and today we've got a minor update on Spielberg's live action Oscar contender [1], War Horse. Set for release [2] on December 28, just five days after Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, War Horse stars David Thewlis, Emily Watson and others [3] and is based on a novel by Michael Morpurgo. It's probably a safe bet that most of us haven't read that book, so definitely check out the official plot description of the film after the jump. Thanks to »

Liam Neeson will return as Zeus in Wrath of the Titans

8 December 2010 3:13 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I would have thought that everyone attached to Clash Of The Titans would have gone running for the hills after that film was released, especially the duo who are actually Oscar-caliber actors, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson, last seen together in Schindler's List. But Fiennes joined Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton in pledging to return for the sequel, and now the last holdout, Neeson, has followed suit. I imagine it would have been kind of hard to make a Greek mythology movie without Zeus, »

Can Steven Spielberg make a comeback at next year's Oscars?

24 November 2010 5:08 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

There wll be a Steven Spielberg double feature in theaters next December --  "The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn" and "War Horse." And based on his track record, this twin bill bodes well for the director's prospects at the Academy Awards. In 1993, he helmed both the blockbuster "Jurassic Park" and the critically-acclaimed "Schindler's List" while in 2005 he had the popcorn pic "War of the Worlds" rampaging through theatres that summer before closing out the year with the tense drama "Munich." "Jurassic" won all three of its Oscar bids (Sound, Sound Effects Editing and Visual Effects) while "Schindler" prevailed in seven of its dozen races, including wins for Best Picture and Best Director. However, in 2005, Spielberg went home empty-handed. "Munich" was skunked on all five of its nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, while "War of the Wor »

Fake Trailer for Schindler's List In 3D

23 November 2010 10:20 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With the way Hollywood is wanting to convert all of these older classic films for 3D recently, it wouldn't surprise me if they actually did take Steven Spielberg's film Schindler's List and gave it a 3D overhaul at some point. Just so you know, this is a completely fake trailer, and it's not really happening. 

Here's a note from the creators: 

The stalwart minds in Hollywood have done it again! Thanks to this wonderful re-release you can watch Schindler's list the way it was meant to be seen- it mind boggling 3-D! Who knows what wacky innovation from the past that's not really good/needed/wanted Hollywood will think up next?

I know this is in bad taste, but sometimes bad taste makes for good comedy. Watch the video below and hit us up with your thoughts.

Fiennes' Harry Potter Hell

23 November 2010 4:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ralph Fiennes suffered for his art on the set of the Harry Potter movies - the actor spent two and a half hours in make-up every day and was unable to eat once the prosthetics had been applied to his face.

The Brit plays villainous Lord Voldemort in the wizard franchise and he had to undergo a total transformation to take on the character's creepy appearance.

Fiennes wore a prosthetic nose and fake teeth and the uncomfortable make-up meant he had to go hungry whenever he was working.

He tells the New York Post, "Every day I was shooting, I had to spend an extra two and a half hours just to get into make-up. It was difficult because on top of everything else I couldn't get any break from it. Besides the actual prosthesis, my character also had a set of fake false teeth. When we broke for lunch, I couldn't eat. I had to take them out each time I wanted anything."

The Schindler's List star also had to wear pantyhose under his long wizard robes and he struggled to stop them falling down.

He adds, "I also had to deal with suspenders because my wardrobe included tights which, as I moved about, kept working their way down. They kept falling all the time. (But) I could pee. The outfit was constructed so that there was room and I could actually pull out my friend." »

Oscars 2012: Daniel Day-Lewis cast as Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln'

19 November 2010 12:52 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

On Friday, DreamWorks announced that two-time Oscar champ Daniel Day-Lewis ("My Left Foot," "There Will Be Blood") will play the 16th American president in Steven Spielberg's long-gestating biopic "Lincoln." The film is slated to start shooting in the fall of 2011 and be released through Disney’s Touchstone in the fall of 2012. At one point, it had been rumored that Liam Neeson -- Spielberg's leading man from the 1993 Best Picture winner "Schindler's List" -- would play the fallen leader. Pulitzer and Tony-winning playwright Tony Kushner ("Angels in America") has adapted Doris Kearn Goodwin's 2005 bestseller "Team of Rivals." The talented scribe was a 2005 adapted screenplay Oscar nominee along with Eric Roth for their work on Spielberg's Best Picture nominee "Munich." As per the press release, "the film will focus on the political collision of Lincoln and the powerful men of his »

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), directed by Mike Newell

The Thespians: How perfect is Brendan Gleeson as former dark wizard hunter "Mad Eye" Moody? The answer is completely perfect. In a series filled with inspired casting, it may very well be one of the very best matches between an actor and his role. Then you have the pre-'Twilight' Robert Pattinson moping it up as Cedric Diggory and no film series with this many British actors could avoid at least one Dr. Who, so David Tennant can be seen as the traitorous Barty Crouch. Finally, there's Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort, the Most Evil Wizard In The World. Is casting Fiennes, best known for playing a psychopathic nazi officer in 'Schindler's List,' a little too obvious? Yeah. Probably. But who cares? Fiennes walks a fine line between truly terrifying and hammy and while »

Jean-Luc Godard's Oscar rekindles antisemitism row

13 November 2010 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

An honorary award for the French director has enraged some in Hollywood who say his work reveals a lifelong hostility towards Jews

It should have been a typical acting love-in of the type the beautiful and rich elite of Hollywood do so well. At a lavish dinner last night, the acclaimed French director Jean-Luc Godard was given an honorary Oscar alongside other established greats such as Francis Ford Coppola and the actor Eli Wallach.

There was the usual banquet, mutual backslapping and enough air-kissing to inflate a zeppelin – but that was where the parallels with orthodox movie award ceremonies ended. For not only did the recipient of the gong fail to show up, but he was, in absentia, the subject of fierce debate over whether or not his long commitment to highlighting the plight of Palestinians has crossed over into antisemitism. The question on many people's lips was: is Godard anti-Zionist or is he anti-Jewish? »

German director's Holocaust film causes outrage

12 November 2010 2:47 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Critics vow to boycott Uwe Boll's gruesome depiction of horrific crimes committed by Nazis at Auschwitz

A German film director best known for his adaptations of bloody video games has sparked widespread revulsion with his upcoming film about the horrors of the Holocaust.

Uwe Boll, who has been described as the world's worst film director and a "schlockmeister", said he felt it was time to present the Nazis' crimes in their "full horror" in his film Auschwitz.

His aim, he said, was to allow audiences to finally grasp the "real, everyday truth" of the Third Reich's atrocities.

Some critics have already vowed to boycott the film, having seen a gruesome teaser trailer – users must prove they are 18 before watching the clip on YouTube but even for adults it makes very grim viewing.

In the excerpt, the 45-year old filmmaker appears as an SS officer outside a gas chamber inside »

Fiennes Backs Restoration For Chekhov House

10 November 2010 12:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Ralph Fiennes has joined a campaign to save the house where famed playwright Anton Chekhov wrote several of his greatest works.

The Russian writer moved to a home on Ukraine's Black Sea coast in Yalta in 1898 after he was diagnosed with tuberculosis, which he battled until his death in 1904.

The property, where Chekhov wrote his plays The Cherry Orchard and Three Sisters, was turned into a museum in 1921 but it has since crumbled due to lack of funding from the government.

Schindler's List star Fiennes has donated funds to restore the landmark and is even planning a trip to Ukraine to learn more about Chekhov.

He says, "Chekhov is one of the greatest humanist writers of the modern era. The preservation of his home in Yalta is to be celebrated. It's distressing to think the Ukrainian government would not acknowledge this and support it. It would be inspirational to know all parties who believe in the Chekhov's legacy are working together.

"I look forward to visiting Ukraine and meeting Ukrainian (and Russian) actors and directors to exchange ideas on Chekhov. His work should provoke a greater understanding of all that we have in common." »

Steven Spielberg's fixation with the Second World War continues. He has given us Band of Brothers, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan and 1941 and he is on board here, along with Tom Hanks, as a producer. This costly ($150m) and lovingly-crafted HBO mini-series charts the true experiences of three Us Marines – Robert Leckie (James Badge Dale), John Basilone (Jon Seda) and Eugene Sledge (Joe Mazzello, the boy in Jurassic Park) in the Pacific theatre of war. »

Sometimes The Inexplicable Is Just That

4 November 2010 2:06 PM, PDT | Screen Comment | See recent Screen Comment news »

By Ali Naderzad - November 4, 2010

There’s a wee bit of controversy following the nomination of French-swiss director Jean-Luc Godard for an honorary award at the Governors Awards scheduled for November 13. Then there’s that hullabaloo understandably stirred by the Jewish press because Godard is an anti-zionist and probably anti-Jewish, too. During a lecture in Canada in the 1970s, when talking about his family’s history Godard mentioned that his dad was the anti-semite and he was the anti-zionist—talk about enlightened family values. In France it’s considered modish to support Palestine and by default to tacitly defame the Jews—it’s a vulgar and narrow-minded attitude, if not downright dodgy. Sometimes, however, racial overtones bear all and the acrimony is real.

Would it be presumptuous to say that Hollywood-hating is, by extension, America-hating, which the average French is more-than-occasionally found guilty of while remaining bewitched by American notions and culture? »

Kevin Smith is Trashing Movie Critics Again

4 November 2010 4:33 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Ever since "Cop Out" hit theaters, Kevin Smith has been bashing movie critics. And now that "Red State" is virtually complete, he is once again taking to Twitter and radio to express his opinion about how critics are simply not necessary. Smith says that he doesn't hate critics, but simply disagrees with the fact that they get to see movies for free in order to write a review. His argument is that critics are just doing their jobs and sometimes don't want to see a certain movie, which means that they probably go into the theater hating it. He adds that he would rather show his movies to 100 fans and let them write reviews even if they don't have a newspaper. Smith says that any exposure that critics create for his movies is unnecessary, since he can reach his fans on his own through channels like Twitter. He says that »

Northern Ireland actor Liam Neeson was this week honored by the Savannah Film Festival. Neeson, who has worked on more than a dozen movies since his wife's skiing accident last year, was presented with the Achievement in Cinema Award at Tuesday night's Trustees Theater. After the award cermony Neeson said he is still very grounded. "Some mornings you wake up and think, gee I look handsome today," he has said. "Other days I think, what am I doing in the movies? I wanna go back to Ireland and drive a forklift." Neeson, 59, has been nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe and a BAFTA. He has starred in a number of notable roles including Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List, Michael Collins in Michael Collins, Alfred Kinsey in Kinsey, and the voice of Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia film series.
