‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Trailer: Warren Beatty Stars as Howard Hughes In 1950’s Hollywood Rom-Com

14 July 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warren Beatty’s new romantic comedy “Rules Don’t Apply” follows an aspiring actress, a lovable driver, and the eccentric Hollywood legend Howard Hughes (played by Beatty himself) as they struggle with each other’s own idiosyncrasies. Set in Hollywood in 1958, small town beauty queen and Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins) arrives to Los Angeles to work under Howard Hughes. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), a religious Methodist who’s engaged to be married to his middle school sweetheart. Soon they fall for each other, and their attraction puts their respective religious convictions to the test, and also places them in violation of Hughes’ #1 rule: No employee will have a relationship with a contract actress. But as Hughes’ behavior becomes more erratic and strange, it intersects with Marla and Frank’s lives in challenging, compelling ways, leaving no one unchanged. The film also »

Top 5 Space Travel Films

12 July 2016 10:57 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On July 4, 2016, Nasa’s Juno spacecraft arrived at Jupiter to begin its exploration of the planet. Although Nasa’s mission to Jupiter is unmanned, we thought it appropriate to honor the accomplishment with a list of five top films about Nasa and space travel. Rather than consider science fiction space films generally, this list focuses mainly on space travel closer to home.

The Martian

Director Ridley Scott and author Andy Weir worked hard to get the science mostly right, in this dramatic thriller about an astronaut accidentally left behind on Mars. Matt Damon heads a terrific cast and injects a lot of humor and makes scientist/astronauts look cool. The film has been praised by people who worked at Nasa for getting the teasing patter and resourceful team work among astronaut/scientists right. Perhaps the best, most scientifically accurate movie about space and astronauts yet.

Gravity

Okay, it has some problems with the science, »

The film will delve deep into the Beatlemania phenomenon, the relationship between audience and performer, and the socio-political context of the 1960’s that engendered such an important cultural development.

12 June 2016 8:28 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Hello, Hal. Do you read me?" This is awesome! Editor/filmmaker Luc Bergeron, also known as Zapatou, has released a mashup video featuring scenes from 25 space movies all edited together to tell one 5-minute story. It's actually quite amusing, especially once things get going. The video is titled Space Story: A Bad Day and includes footage from pretty much every great sci-fi/space movie ever made - from Star Wars to The Fifth Element to 2001: A Space Odyssey to Apollo 13 to Moon to Armageddon to Avatar to Guardians of the Galaxy and everything else. This reminds me of the Hell's Club mashup but with space movies. Enjoy! Thanks to Kottke for the tip. Edited by Luc Bergeron, also known as Zapatou. He writes: "Here is my new Mashup. 25 movies in 4 minutes. The action starts at 1.40, but you have to watch the start for understanding story."

Ron Howard to Adapt Neal Stephenson’s Seveneves

10 June 2016 1:38 PM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Although Ron Howard made a name for himself in the ’80s directing sci-fi and fantasy movies like Cocoon and Willow, for some reason he has almost entirely avoided those genres in the years that followed. In fact, the closest he has come to directing a sci-fi movie since then was Apollo 13 back in 1995. […] »

Ron Howard is bringing the Apollo 13 team back to board Neal Stephenson's vision of the future.

Director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer have made several films together, few more successful than 1995's Apollo 13. The Oscar-nominated story of the space mission of the same title was a huge box office success. Now? The team are coming back together on a new sci-fi film, an adaptation of Neal Stephenson's novel, Seveneves. Apollo 13 screenwriter Bill Broyles is back to pen the script, too.

Seveneves tells the story of countries coming together to save the world in the face of a catastrophic event set to end the Earth. A new home is needed, and duly found. Then, fast forward a few thousand years, and, even before you can say Battlestar Galactica, the search to find Earth again begins.

Skydance is overseeing the project, with David Ellison producing for the firm. »

Examining Hollywood Remakes: The Hollow Man

8 May 2016 7:26 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our series on remakes continues with a movie which is ironic because it’s about a man who can’t be seen but in reality, it’s actually the movie which shouldn’t be seen. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Hollow Man (2000).

The Hollow Man is a modern reimaging of the oft-copied Invisible Man story, first brought to the screen by Universal Studios in 1933. The story is based on H. G. Wells' famous science fiction novel “The Invisible Man”, published in 1897, which told the tale of a scientist who develops an invisibility serum and uses himself as a test subject, becoming both invisible and dangerously insane.

The 1933 classic The Invisible Man, which was part of Universal Studios cluster of successful horror film franchises, was directed by James Whale, who also directed Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein. The 1933 version has an impressive 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It was selected »
