Now's the time to get moonstruck. Forty-five years ago Sunday, Apollo 11's Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on another world. Armstrong's "one small step ... one giant leap" on the dusty lunar surface July 20, 1969, still stirs hearts. You can join the celebration, without needing to travel to the launch site at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, where Nasa will honor Armstrong on Monday with a renaming ceremony of the historic Operations and Checkout Building. Both Aldrin and Michael Collins, the Apollo 11 command module pilot who orbited the moon, will be there. At the very least, »

Brian Grazer Is Hustling to Keep Imagine Entertainment Relevant in Ever-Changing Hollywood

16 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s odd to see Brian Grazer chillin’.

But there he is — the frenetic mega-producer — lounging in his sprawling backyard in Santa Monica, Calif., overlooking the Riviera Country Club, munching on a breakfast of turkey bacon and eggs over easy, drinking fresh-pressed carrot juice with a touch of ginger.

Not surprisingly the zen moment quickly dissolves.

“Oh shit, can I text Mick Jagger back?” Grazer asks a reporter, suddenly bolting upright, his gold-and-white leather encased iPhone vibrating. The two are co-producing “Get On Up,” the James Brown biopic that debuts Aug. 1. Jagger’s on tour in Europe, and they’ve missed a chance to talk. “He’s so polite and British,” Grazer confides. “You have to be like, ‘How are you this morning?’ and take a beat, and then get on with it.”

Grazer prides himself on deciphering what makes a person tick. He’s spent the past three decades peppering industry titans, »

Following his surprisingly fresh and entertaining racing drama, Rush, Ron Howard has given his ever-faithful fans the first glimpse of his follow-up effort, Heart of the Sea.

Straight from his Twitter account, the Apollo 13 director shared an initial behind-the-scenes look at the post-production stage. The image, which can be seen above and in its original format below, shows the director working on a scene involving Australian actor Chris Hemsworth, who also collaborated with the director on Rush:

Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea, the movie follows the true account of a whaling ship stuck in the middle of the ocean for 90 days after a grizzly encounter with a sperm whale.

'The Help' Director Set to Helm 'In the Event of a Moon Disaster'

25 June 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While Apollo 13 chronicled a failed trip to the moon after Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on Earth's orbiting satellite, a new film called In the Event of a Moon Disaster will focus on what might have happened if the Apollo 11 mission has turned out to be a disaster. When Pulitzer Prize winning author William Safire passed away in 2009, a speech was discovered amongst his papers called "In Event Of Moon Disaster." Safire was also a speech writer for President Nixon in 1969, and the speech was written with the intention of being delivered if Apollo 11 had a tragic end. So how will a film be centered around the speech? Well, the screenplay, which made the Black List back in 2011, is inspired by the speech to create a fictionalized alternate reality of the events, likely playing out what would have happened if the moon landing never happened and Apollo 11 failed. »

Fright Exclusive Interview With Snowpiercer Star Ed Harris!

24 June 2014 2:04 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

He’s been an astronaut, a figment of John Nash’s imagination, and even Jackson Pollock, but in his new movie Snowpiercer, Ed Harris plays Wilford, the man at the head of the train, making sure things run smoothly aboard his eternal machine. I caught up with Harris to talk about his new film, which hits theaters later this week, on June 27th. Together, we chatted about what drew him to the script, what it’s like working with Chris Evans, if and when Harris will be making a return to the director’s chair, and his advice for up-and-coming actors.

Could you talk about, in working with such an international crew,  and especially the director, and the two other main characters are Korean, so what was like a big discovery for you?

Ed Harris: Well you know, the most interesting thing was the style of filming, you know? »

Interview: ‘Million Dollar Arm’ Star Bill Paxton Keeps Hustling

16 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Once you’ve heard Bill Paxton scream, “Game over, man!” you can never unhear it. And that’s a good thing. He got to play big on camera throughout the ’80s, but hamming it up isn’t all he’s capable of as evidenced by a string of great dramatic roles in the ’90s including One False MoveA Simple Plan and Apollo 13. Years later he surprised people again with directorial debut, Frailty, which made our list of one of the best horror films of its decade. He followed that film up with The Greatest Game Ever Played, a movie that clearly means a lot to Paxton despite its failure to find a wide audience. From 2006 to 2011 he played Bill Henrickson on HBO’s Big Love. He received considerable acclaim for his performance, but he once again found himself having to prove himself capable of range beyond that character once the show came to an end »

Ridley Scott to Direct Matt Damon in The Martian

14 May 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Ridley Scott is currently in negotiations to direct Matt Damon in a sci-fi space adventure film called The Martian.

The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard was attached to direct the film at one point, but he left the project to work with Sony Pictures on their Sinister Six movie.

The movie is based on the novel by Andy Weir, and THR describes it as "being in the vein of Robert ZemeckisCast Away and Ron Howard’s Apollo 13 (both of which starred Tom Hanks), Martian centers on an astronaut who is stranded on a Martian colony and struggles to survive. Back on Earth, Nasa tries to mount a rescue mission."

Scott and Damon should make a great team on a project like this. It really sounds like it could be a great flick, and it has the right talent to bring it to life. Here's a detailed »

Ridley Scott in early talks to direct Matt Damon in 'The Martian'

14 May 2014 7:08 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Ridley Scott, who knows a little something about space thrillers, is in early talks with 20th Century Fox to direct Matt Damon in The Martian, a project that has drawn comparisons to Apollo 13 and Cast Away.

As The Hollywood Reporter initially reported, the Alien auteur would take the place of Cabin the Woods director Drew Goddard, who left to supervise Sony’s Spider-Man spinoff, Sinister Six. Goddard had already written a script, based on Andy Weir’s self-published book, which tells the story of an injured astronaut stranded on Mars who must improvise to survive while Earth’s scientists »
