New poster and trailer for Manglehorn starring Al Pacino

16 May 2015 1:29 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A poster and trailer have debuted for Manglehorn, the new film starring Al Pacino (Heat), which you can see right here…

Reclusive small town locksmith Angelo Manglehorn has never quite recovered from losing the love of his life, Clara. Fixated on her memory, he feels closer to his beloved cat than the people around him and prefers to find comfort in his work and daily routine. Still, he forges on with his tenuous human connections, maintaining intermittent contact with his son, taking misplaced pride in a former protégé gone astray, and establishing a cautious friendship with a kindhearted woman from the local bank. As this solitary man approaches the possibility of new love, he finds himself at a crossroads between remaining consumed by the past and embracing the present. Manglehorn is a movingly humanistic portrait of a man rendered with unsentimental simplicity and idiosyncratic humor.

Directed by David Gordon Green (Joe, »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Heists

14 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

Hollywood has had a long love affair with the heist sub-genre. Dating as far back as the silent film era with 1928’s Alias Jimmy Valentine, and transcending various genres like westerns (The War Wagon), war (Kelly’s Heroes) and even animation (Toy Story 3), the heist has tantalized our fantasies and outsmarted our wits for decades. Whether it’s for the very last time before retirement, gathering the gang back together for a big payday or for the thrill of pulling off the perfect robbery, all heist films share one key element: commitment to a plan. »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Corporate Greed Is Bad for Your Health and for the Health of Democracy

13 May 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Insider' movie: Al Pacino and Russell Crowe 'The Insider' movie: 1999 exposé of CBS news show barks, but doesn't bite Michael Mann's 1999 movie The Insider quote exchange: "It's old news. ... We'll be ok," says Don Hewitt (Philip Baker Hall), the creator of the CBS news show 60 Minutes. "These things have a half-life of 15 minutes." "No, that's fame," replies 60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace (Christopher Plummer). "Fame has a 15-minute half-life. Infamy lasts a little longer." The infamous "things" referred to by Hewitt and Wallace are the series of scandals that erupted in early 1996, when it was revealed that CBS had refused to air an interview with a tobacco company whistleblower because the network feared the (financial) consequences. What Freedom of the Press? Based on Marie Brenner's Vanity Fair article about the events that led up to that embarrassing – and disturbing – incident, The Insider tells the story of scientist Jeffrey Wigand »

'The Connection' (2015) Movie Review

11 May 2015 12:29 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In so many ways The Connection (La French) feels like a film Michael Mann would have made with its dedication to intense action sequences, shot with immediacy and edits that give the viewer an understanding of the space within which the characters are interacting. And, like Mann, director Cedric Jimenez doesn't forgo character, understanding even the small moments between husband and wife, father and son, are important in a crime epic, allowing us to get to know the characters on a more personal level, getting to know them as people rather than just as cop and criminal. Described as a "European flipside to William Friedkin's The French Connection", The Connection is much more than a marketing blurb intent on piquing the interest of hard-to-attract general audience members. This is a down-and-dirty '70s crime thriller, with all the texture of the 35mm film it was shot on. In fact, »

Tom Hardy Lining Up Mystery DC Project

11 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Tom Hardy has dropped some hints with the guys over at Collider that he has a secret DC project under development with Warner Bros. From the scale he's talking about it sounds like a big-budget marquee project, but apart from that we know little else. "I actually got something cooking with Warner Bros which is also a comic book it's a DC thing which is kind of...it's really good actually, it contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean's Eleven to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, technicolor, Pulp Fiction...it's a psychological fuckfest, it's absolutely awesome." Hardy went on to say that it has a Transmetropolitan vibe but is more grounded in reality, and compared it to Michael Mann's Heat. Hardy then went on to discuss the potential for layering the story across multiple platforms, saying »

Tom Hardy Working With DC Again… But On What?

10 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Having braved a fearsome post-apocalyptic landscape for Mad Max: Fury Road, you couldn’t blame Tom Hardy for wanting to lighten the mood. He’s been in mischievous mode for a recent interview, revealing his involvement in a certain something from the world of Detective Comics.

If you’re looking for more detail, well you’re not going to get it. However Hardy has done a great job of ramping up expectation as you’ll see from the quote below:

(It) contains elements of all kinds of stuff. From Ocean’s Eleven, to Batman, you can get all the wrappers out and it would be a big, really cool, Technicolor, Pulp Fiction… It’s a psychological f—fest… as if you would take Transmetropolitan (the cyberpunk range by Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson) and make it happen, but it’s not that out there it’s something which is much more real world. »

Name Composers Not Above Getting the Boot

29 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There was a brief stir in January when composer Harry Gregson-Williams publicly expressed, via Facebook, his surprise at hearing music he didn’t recognize at the premiere of Michael Mann’s thriller “Blackhat” — and at not hearing a lot of score he did write.

The composer says his Facebook post has been blown out of proportion, but admits it was disappointing to see music he toiled over dropped (or replaced) in the final cut. But, he stresses, that’s just part of the game.

“You win some, you lose some,” he says, relaying his early mentor Hans Zimmer’s comment that you haven’t made it as a film composer until you’ve had a score rejected.

Gregson-Williams is simply the latest in a long line of composers who’ve watched scores tossed out and replaced whole-cloth, partially substituted by pre-existing tracks, or mangled beyond recognition. Mann is notorious for »

Chris Hemsworth Had No Idea 'What the Hell Was Going on' in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

29 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

When we were on the set of "Avengers: Age of Ultron" last summer, we watched Chris Hemsworth shoot a scene set in Avengers Tower, where he has a chat with The Vision, the new, purplish robo-god introduced in the third act of the highly anticipated sequel. The Vision (played by Paul Bettany) looked cool and imposing, every square inch of his skin covered in prosthetics, but Hemsworth? Well, Hemsworth was Thor. In between takes he chatted with his stunt double, a burly man who throws the hammer when the megawatt star is unable, and it became clear, after a few minutes, that Hemsworth was bigger than his stunt double. Truly, he is an Asgardian king.

And in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," you get to remember why you liked Thor so much in the first place, after the dreary sequel "Thor: The Dark World." Thor is funny again, with Hemsworth's comic »

What in the world is Zac Efron wearing? See him on set with Robert De Niro

28 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

There's a reason why Zac Efron's wearing a Coachella-style fringed crop top, neon trackie bottoms and tasselled loafers without socks - it's all for his latest film role.

Efron takes the lead as uptight groom-to-be Jason Kelly in the Dan Mazer-directed comedy Dirty Grandpa, co-starring Robert De Niro.

The story follows Jason as he's tricked into driving his grandfather - a perverted former Army general played by De Niro - to Spring Break in Florida.

De Niro was pictured wearing a sun hat, a Hawaiian shirt and a pair of beige chinos as he filmed scenes on set with an animated Efron, who also seemed to be sporting blood stains on his tracksuit trousers.

Filming for the movie wrapped back in February, but the actors have gone back on location to Tybee Island in Georgia to re-shoot scenes on location.

Dirty Grandpa is slated for release next summer. »

Michael Mann and Robert De Niro Are Competing in a Race of the Enzo Ferrari Biopics

15 April 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Michael Mann is about to go head to head with his Heat star Robert De Niro. The director and the actor are working on separate biopics about Enzo Ferrari, the champion Italian racer who founded the luxury sports car company named after him. According to Variety, Mann’s version has been in the works for a while with the Rome-based Cecchi Gori Media (De Niro’s A Bronx Tale) and now he’s in final talks to direct the movie. It’s unclear if this will be his follow-up to Blackhat, but shooting wouldn’t begin until next year. Not that I expect he’d slip something else in before that. Currently titled Ferrari, according to IMDb, the script for this one is a Mann-ordered mash-up of efforts penned separately by Troy Kennedy-Martin (The Italian Job) and the late David Rayfiel (The Firm), both individually adapted from the 1991 biography “Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the »

Michael Mann Lines Up Next Feature, Ferrari Story 'Go Like Hell'

15 April 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was not a fun experience watching Michael Mann's Blackhat. Not only was it a terrible film, but it was a terrible film from one of my favorite filmmakers, a filmmaker that seems to be moving closer to the lackluster output of Ridley Scott and farther away from the man that made the likes of Collateral, The Insider and Heat. So, just as my interest in Scott's The Martian isn't too high, I can't say I'm all that intrigued when it comes to Mann's next project, which Variety reports is the long-gestating "Ferrari" biopic, about Italian automotive mogul Enzo Ferrari. We first reported on this project back in May 2011 when word was 20th Century Fox would distribute Go Like Hell, a film based on A.J. Baime's "Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans" with a script by Jason Keller »

Mann Is Ready To Drive 'Ferrari' To The Big Screen

15 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Michael Mann, likely hoping to bounce back from Blackhat- the critical and financial flop he released earlier this year-, is preparing his next project. The revered director, responsible for films like HeatThe Insider, and Ali is now preparing to bring Enzo Ferrari's life story to the big screen. The Italian automotive mogul is responsible for the iconic brand of cars that bare his name: Ferrari.

Mann, as he's been known to do, has been doing exhaustive research on the man, and has combined two separate scripts that were based off of the book "Enzo Ferrari: The Man, The Cars, and The Races" by Brock Yates into one. Those two, now merged scripts were written by Troy Kennedy Martin (The Italian Job) and David Rayfiel (The Firm).

The Rayfiel script was going to be used by Sydney Pollack when this film was first conceived back in 2004, with »

2000Ad Prog 1924 – Comic Book Review

7 April 2015 5:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews 2000Ad Prog 1924…

Borag Thungg, Earthlets! It’s all change this Prog, with five spanking-new stories beginning. Well, they’re kinda new. Four of them are just the latest chapters in long-running strips. Handily, though, the editors have included a ‘catch-up’ page for each, which makes for some entertaingly bonkers reading. 2000Ad, it seems, is where comic book writers’ imaginations go to take drugs.

These narratives make perfect sense when told over time, but appear most strange when condenscened into two paragraphs. The best of these is the catch-up for Strontium Dog, the long-running strip from Judge Dredd creators John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra. Mutant turned bounty hunter turned freedom fighter, once-dead-but-returned-to-life Johnny Alpha seemed “blown to smithereens” last time we saw him. Turns out he was saved by the government he fought against to face a greater foe. Personally, Alpha has never done it for me. It »

Amazon Renews Bosch For Second Season After Impressive Performance

18 March 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Not only has Bosch, Amazon‘s original drama series, performed well for the service, it’s managed high praise from viewers and critics. Amazon has now announced a second season, and even a bit of a plot synopsis for that season.

If you aren’t already on board with the stylish, intense series based on Michael Connelly’s books, you now have even more incentive, as you know there’s more on the way.

This is actually a bigger announcement than it might seem, because new seasons are still a guessing game for streaming services, which don’t have a history for viewers to fall back on when it comes to being able to figure out if a favorite is worth investing in. I know a lot of people weren’t sure about jumping into Alpha House at first, for just that reason.

At any rate, you have more to look forward to, »
