Tom Hanks Has a Short Story in The New Yorker

20 October 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Noted typewriter enthusiast (and actor) Tom Hanks has a short story, "Alan Bean Plus Four," in The New Yorker this week. It's got selfies, a guy named MDash who "shortened his long tribal name to rap-star length," and references to Apollo 13, apps, and selfies: "We took hundreds of selfies with the Earth in the window and, plinking a Ping-Pong ball off the center seat, played a tableless table-tennis tournament ..." All in all, it's short, sweet, and pretty much perfect. (They've even included a recording of Hanks reading his piece aloud.) The only thing that could make this better would be an accompanying photo of Hanks click-clacking away at his typewriter. Maybe it's finally time for Larry Crowne 2? »

Chris Hemsworth Stars In First Trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea

16 October 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Watch the first trailer for Ron Howard’s action adventure In The Heart Of The Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex. The film is scheduled to open on March 13, 2015 in theatres and IMAX.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.

The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story.

In The Heart Of The Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, »

Exclusive Interview with Director Khalil Sullins for ‘Listening’

16 October 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Two college scientists manage to harness the power of the human mind by reading thoughts with a machine. But, forces unknown want that technology.

Listening” is the directorial debut for Khalil Sullins and stars Thomas Stroppel and Artie Ahr as the best friends inventing this cutting-edge technology.

Here’s the synopsis:

David (Thomas Stroppel) and Ryan (Artie Ahr) hope inventing telepathy will solve all their problems, but the bleeding-edge technology opens a Pandora’s Box of new dangers, especially when it falls into the wrong hands. In a color-saturated vision of present-day science fiction, friends are forced against each other in a life-or-death battle over not only the privacy of our minds, but the future of human free will itself.

Latino-Review had an exclusive phone interview with Sullins on his film. We talked about the challenges on this psychological indie thriller and the real technologies and theories behind it.

First Trailer & Poster for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea Released

16 October 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In the Heart of the Sea (based on a book of the same name) tells the true story of a shipping voyage that would go on to inspire the classical tale of Moby Dick, and today brings the first trailer and poster for Ron Howard's upcoming adaptation.  Come inside to check them out!

Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth are back together, this time in a period piece out on the high seas.  I wasn't sure what to think about this story when I first hear about it, but having seen this trailer, I'm definitely excited to know more.  While the human drama elements will most surely be at the forefront, it's pretty obvious that at it's core, In the Heart of the Sea is a disaster flick.  I love these kinds of films and Ron Howard does a great job with them (look at Apollo 13), by combining engaging »

Jeff Daniels Takes a Top Post at Nasa in Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

3 October 2014 7:34 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This fall, Jeff Daniels steps away from the news desk on HBO with the third and final season of "The Newsroom" and gets stupid again in the comedy sequel Dumb & Dumber To. But next he'll next be taking a prestigious job at Nasa as THR reports the actor who has been seen in films such as Good Night and Good Luck and Looper has taken a role in Ridley Scott's developing sci-fi drama The Martian. The film follows Matt Damon as an astronaut who ends up stranded in a Martian colony and struggles to survive long enough to be able to make it back to Earth as Nasa tries to launch a rescue mission. So what is Daniels doing? Daniels will play the director of Nasa dealing with the crisis, likely a role akin to the Ed Harris role in Apollo 13, a role that he somewhat reprise in »

Directors' Trademarks: David Fincher

1 October 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of Gone Girl this week, let’s examine the trademark style and calling signs of David Fincher as director.

Fincher’s love for film started at an early age, when, like Steven Spielberg, he made home movies with an 8mm camera. He was able to translate this love for film into a career. In the 1980’s he worked for several production companies, including Industrial Light and Magic. Later he joined Propaganda Films and began to direct music videos and commercials. Propaganda Films was also a starting point for directors such as Michael Bay, Spike Jonze, Gore Verbinski, Alex Proyas, and Zach Snyder. All of these directors, understandably, have a focus on visuals, and David Fincher is no exception. 

His feature debut was Alien 3 »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Before Sharknado there was Leprechaun…

26 September 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

All the Warwick Davis Leprechaun movies are coming out in a new Blu Ray combo pack. The commentary tracks offer some memories of my two contributions to the guilty pleasure franchise. Here are a few more.

I grew up enjoying the absurdist humor of the Monty Python’s Flying Circus TV series. So why not Absurdist Cinema? I loved the 1941 Hellzapoppin’, an early iconic example. The concept of the mid ’90’s Leprechaun franchise was proudly ludicrous – pint sized Jason/Freddy/Chucky amalgam with an Irish twist terrorizes and kills most of the supporting cast. But he was never really scary. I decided to embrace the absurd and make it as much fun as the formula allowed.

 

Blue Rider Pictures, for whom I had made Night Of The Demons 2, were asked by Trimark to produce the third and, at that stage, the intended last in the series. Send the little guy to Vegas, »

‘Kill the Messenger’ Review: Jeremy Renner's Muckraking Feels Half-Baked in This Biopic

26 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

In the right filmmaking hands, a movie about the signing of the Declaration of Independence, or the rescue of Apollo 13, or even the Allied victory in World War II can still generate genuine suspense, even though we know the outcome of the story. At other times, however, our knowledge of real-life events hovers like a shroud over the movie, preventing us from caring too much about how everything's going to turn out. “Kill the Messenger,” a biopic about Gary Webb, the San Jose Mercury News reporter who first connected the influx of crack cocaine into the United States in. »

Take a Deep Breath: Enthralling Space Exploration Tribute 'Voyage'

24 September 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We'll find a way. We always have..." The countdown is at T-minus 44 days until Interstellar arrives in theaters. With the hype growing more and more every single day, fans are starting to show their love for the wonderful world of sci-fi in exciting ways. I was sent this video, made by Fs.net reader Robbert Doelwijt, titled Voyage that is an Interstellar-inspired tribute to space exploration. It's a quick video focusing mostly on the recent space exploration movies hitting theaters, though there are nods to 2001 and Apollo 13 in here. It's simply an enthralling reminder of the awe and great mystery of space. Can I visit out there yet? Here's the video tribute titled "Voyage", made by Robbert Doelwijt in his own time.

TNT developing Neil Armstrong miniseries One Giant Leap

21 September 2014 11:15 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

One small step for TV programming, One Giant Leap for mankind. Four hours of Neil Armstrong’s story are coming to telly…

Astronauts are in vogue right now in the movie making world. The memory of last year’s Gravity, a film which garnered many kind words from real space-walkers, is still very fresh. We all know that Christopher Nolan’s next movie Interstellar is set to dig out the Hollywood standard-issue spacesuits, too.

However, an astronaut telly show is something we haven’t seen for a while. American network TNT is looking to remedy that by bringing a four hour televisual biopic of Neil Armstrong to the small screen.

The miniseries, entitled One Giant Leap, will be adapted from a book by journalist Leon Wagener. Scripts will be written by Al Reinert, half of the writing team behind Apollo 13 and regular scripter for TV series From The Earth To The Moon. »

Kathleen Quinlan in After

The always-game Kathleen Quinlan (Apollo 13, The Doors, Breakdown) stars in After, a 2014 mystery drama about a family that’s being held together by a deeply buried secret.

Set in the winter of 2002 in chilly upstate New York, After tells the story of a middle-class family struggling with the financial consequences of a failing business and a series of inter-generational conflicts and rivalries. Quinlan stars as Nora Valentino, a woman whose husband, Mitch (John Doman, Blue Valentine), loves her more than anything in the world. So much so that he, along with his four children and sister-in-law, have gone to extreme lengths to hide a horror too painful for Nora to bear. And if this intricately buried secret is revealed, it could alter everyone’s lives irrevocably.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

The Budding Art of Gaming Journalism: Maintaining Integrity in Today's Blitzkrieg Media

9 September 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

"Journalism is printing something that someone does not want printed.  Everything else is public relations." - George Orwell

It can be difficult to remember the past.  Most especially, in today’s high-speed society, when ideals, opinions, and events converge, disseminate, and dissolve at the speed of light, much is often lost in translation. In a time of simpler ideals, journalists were not faced with the power of connectivity that exists today.  In the early days of news coverage, the biggest stories came out of governments, wars, churches, and social change.  Interviews with such personalities like Martin Luther King Jr., Richard M. Nixon, or Mahatma Ghandi were only seen by the few who were available to see them at the time they were broadcast and rarely were they repeated.  

Huge news events like the assassination of JFK, frontline coverage of Vietnam, or the Apollo 13 accident received nationwide coverage, filling up »
