Hollywood and Las Vegas: The Perfect Movie Relationship

16 March 2017 6:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

There’s not many places on Earth more bright, glitzy and glamorous than Las Vegas. With its famous shows, many casinos and constant parties, it’s no surprise that the city in the desert is popular with Hollywood and the film industry. Situated just 263 miles east of Los Angeles and the film community, Vegas has attracted the attention of movie producers for decades.

Founded in 1905, not too long after the birth of the movie industry itself, the City Of Las Vegas first appeared in a motion picture in 1952. The film was The Las Vegas Story, a Howard Hughes production starring Jane Russell and Victor Mature that was a suspenseful thriller involving murder and intrigue. It was quickly followed by the likes of Crashing Las Vegas and Meet Me In Las Vegas a few years later, but it was the arrival of the 1960 Rat Pack film Ocean’s 11 which really united »

An institution in Las Vegas (just take a look at Céline Dion and Britney Spears), this year’s lineup includes the Who, Mariah Carey, Backstreet Boys and Journey, among others. Here are the best new residencies to catch in Sin City this summer — and what to expect from them.

Is Netflix ringing the death knell for cinemas?

13 March 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Allison Mar 16, 2017

With Martin Scorsese's The Irishman the latest high profile movie capture for Netflix, where does this leave the multiplex?

Last month it was announced that the distribution rights to Martin Scorsese’s long-awaited mob film, The Irishman, had been purchased by Netflix. This will no doubt be a major coup for the online streaming service. The film is reuniting Scorsese with his greatest muse, Robert De Niro, for the first time since 1995’s Casino, while Al Pacino and Harvey Keitel have also been confirmed. It’s the filmic equivalent of a classic rock supergroup – like The Expendables but it might actually be good.

It won’t be the first time, however, that Netflix has attracted A-list talent. Since 2015, the company has emerged as a major player in original film production, and in doing so it has shaken the foundations of the studio driven system which we all took for granted. »

Martin Scorsese Says Home Viewing is “Not the Best Way” to Experience Movies

23 February 2017 12:15 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

History was made this week when it was revealed that, after Paramount passed, Netflix would be ponying up the $100 million budget for Martin Scorsese‘s gangster epic The Irishman and distributing it worldwide on their streaming platform. For featuring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and according to a new report, confirmation on Joe Pesci, Bobby Cannavale, and likely Harvey Keitel, the fact that Hollywood studios turned down such an enticing combination speaks volumes when it comes to their priorities. While Netflix hasn’t specified the precise theatrical roll-out plans for the Steve Zaillian-scripted adaptation, we can be certain that the vast majority of viewers will be seeing it from their own homes. Last night, during a 90-minute masterclass at the BFI Southbank, Scorsese shared his thoughts when it comes to this form of viewing.

“The problem now is that it is everything around the frame that is distracting,” Scorsese »

Martin Scorsese Will Bring The Irishman To Netflix

21 February 2017 9:08 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, this is certainly surprising. After hearing that Martin Scorsese’s upcoming gangster movie, The Irishman, which will mark his ninth collaboration with Robert De Niro, was going to be heading to Paramount, Indiewire now reports that Netflix has swooped in to pick up it up. Sources say the studio got cold feet on the apparently “risky” project and backed out, allowing the streaming service to grab the worldwide rights to the $100 million epic.

Based off Charles’ Brandt’s novel I Heard You Paint Houses, the Steve Zaillian-scripted film will chronicle the life of “Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a mob hitman whose illustrious career is today best known for a supposed involvement in the death of Jimmy Hoffa.” This one’s been in development for a very long time now, so to see that there’s finally some tangible signs of progress being made is very encouraging.

Netflix has acquired worldwide rights to Martin Scorsese’s gangster movie “The Irishman,” starring Robert De Niro.

Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler Get Criminal in First Trailer for ‘The House’

16 February 2017 8:13 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After their days on Saturday Night Live and (brief) team-ups in Blades of Glory and Anchorman 2, it’s surprising we haven’t seen more of Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler together on screen. They’ll finally be taking dual leading roles in this summer’s comedy The House and the first trailer has now landed. The film follows the husband-and-wife pair launching an underground casino in order to pay for their daughter’s college tuition.

“They’re dealing with the idea of being empty-nesters and what that’s going to do to their lives,” Ferrell tells EW. “We basically become Sharon Stone and Robert De Niro in Casino.” Judging from this first trailer, Jason Mantzoukas seems to be in top comedic form in a supporting role and hopefully Neighbors writer Andrew J. Cohen brings the same amount of laughs in his directorial debut.

Running Wild – Review

14 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Running Wild plays like if Michael Bay directed Flicka and as the old saying goes two wrongs do not make a right. Now, if you enjoy Michael Bay (Pain and Gain and The Rock are awesome) and you enjoy Flicka, well then this might just be the movie for you. If those movies aren’t your cup of tea, though, you might want to steer clear.

The bringing up of those two recognizable names (Flicka maybe less than Michael Bay) comes with a good purpose in that the film emulates the style of one and the familiar plot elements of the other. Running Wild is about a woman (Dorian Brown, who was excellent on Wilfred) trying to keep her ranch afloat after the death of her husband. She finds a number of wild horses and brings them in with a government program that helps inmates by »

Goodfellas: the most compulsively watchable film ever made?

5 February 2017 1:17 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Brogan Morris Feb 8, 2017

Some films earn critical acclaim and you only want to watch them once. Goodfellas? We could watch it on loop...

What is the most compulsively watchable film of all time? Not the greatest film – there are lists dedicated to solving that particular conundrum scattered all over the internet. Rather, the one film that begs you to return again and again, the one you can’t help but see through to the end when you happen to bump into it on a late night channel surf. Citizen Kane, Vertigo, 8 ½: greats, undisputed classics long vaunted by critics, but not necessarily the kinds of movies with the irresistible pull of a truly, compulsively watchable movie.

What could be the best of these? Raiders Of The Lost Ark, with its peak-Spielberg action-adventure stylings? Airplane!, a riotous and unfailingly quotable comedy that spawned a thousand imitators? Could even one as »

‘Sleepless’ Review: Jamie Foxx Stars In a Very Tired Remake Of a Modern Action Masterpiece

13 January 2017 7:53 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The listless, shoddy sort of remake where it feels like all of the characters have already seen the movie they’re in, “Sleepless” reduces one of the best action films of the 21st century into one of the most benign. Released in 2011, Frederic Jardin’s severely under-seen “Sleepless Night” is a French-language brawler with universal appeal — bruising, relentless, and blissfully frenetic, it remains a masterclass in how to layer cinematic mayhem so that every new punch lands where the last one left off.

Needless to say, a lot has been lost in translation. Directed by Baran bo Odar (“The Silence”) and designed to swindle money from starry-eyed January theatergoers who’ve been shut out of “Hidden Figures” or “La La Land” but might as well see something because they’ve already trekked to the multiplex and paid the babysitter for the night, this lifeless photocopy proves that American exceptionalism is »

Guide To The Best Casino Films

13 January 2017 6:28 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Guide To The Best Casino Films Ever since film cameras first started whirring into action, directors have realised that casinos provide an environment that is packed with glamour, danger and chance. So whether the movie stars are cavorting around a roulette table, or are keeping it simple at the slots machines, here are the films that serve as a great introduction to this fascinating mini-genre. Martin Scorsese is one of the all-time greats of modern cinema, and so the visionary director’s take on gambling culture is a pretty good place to start. His 1995 movie, Casino, saw Robert DeNiro starring as a mobster who gets the opportunity to run his own gaming establishment in Las Vegas and inevitably gets caught up in a thrilling and violent adventure. And whilst Sharon Stone’s performance in Casino was mesmerising, it’s hard to match the sheer opulence offered by James Bond’s »

Casinos and their influence on the movies

13 January 2017 1:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cinema is now over a hundred years old, the very first movie cameras being invented all of the way back in the 1890s. With the invention of this new tool and the decades since, film has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry and is constantly changing. One may say that today’s audiences are happier sat in front of a comic book or superhero movies, or being transported to a galaxy far, far away, but in fact there are many influences to the modern film, none more popular than the casino-themed motion picture.

Casinos have influenced film in many ways over the years, and can be traced way back to the very early days of cinema, but you have to look back at the year 1965 for one of the first proper casino movies to hit cinema screens. That film was The Cincinnati Kid, a picture that saw Hollywood hot property »

The Current Debate: An Irreducible "Silence"

10 January 2017 12:30 PM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

The most surprising feature of Martin Scorsese’s Silence, a 161-minute religious picture about 17th-century Jesuit priests in Japan, is that it exists at all; the second most surprising feature may be its critical reception, much of which seems to approach the film at a kind of respectful distance. The tentativeness of reviews seems to reflect the ambiguity of the film’s religious and moral conclusions, as Alissa Wilkinson writes at Vox:It’s been remarkable to discover that Silence is a challenging film for many critics and early viewers, including those who aren’t interested in religion at all, or who don’t identify with a particular faith. The genius of Endō’s story and Scorsese’s adaptation is that it won’t characterize anyone as a saint, nor will it either fully condone or reject the colonialist impulses, the religious oppression, the apostasy, or the faltering faith of its characters. »

6 January 2017 7:57 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

What better way to ring in the new year than with a loved one? 

Nicole Kidman surprised Keith Urban on stage as the singer headlined Jack Daniel's Music City Midnight: New Year's Eve in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday. The father of two put on an incredible tribute to artists lost in 2016, including Prince, David Bowie, Merle Haggard, Leonard Cohen and Glenn Frey -- with Kidman joining her husband on stage and dancing in the background.

The same night, Justin Bieber performed poolside at Fontainebleau Miami Beach, taking the stage right before the clock struck 12 to perform his hit songs, "Sorry," "What Do U Mean," and "Boyfriend," before DJs Marshmello and Skrillex joined the singer onstage for "Where Are U Now." As for who was in attendance for Bieber's New Year's performance? That would be Johnny Manziel, Jeremy Piven, Ansel Elgort, Lala Anthony, and Jonathan Cheban.
