'Feud': How Ryan Murphy's Hollywood-Diva Miniseries Rips Celebrity Apart

21 March 2017 7:55 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Fame – it's a hell of a drug. Feud is like watching Robert De Niro and Al Pacino square off in Heat, except with two of Hollywood's living legends playing a couple of dead ones. In Ryan Murphy's new anthology series, Jessica Lange is Joan Crawford to Susan Sarandon's Bette Davis, a pair of toxic movie divas madly in hate with each other. As Davis famously snipped, "She has slept with every male star at MGM, except Lassie." This eight-episode fever dream celebrates how they basically invented the modern celebrity beef, »

Director Dagen Merrill Talks Atomica [Interview]

15 March 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

In the new sci-fi thriller Atomica, a young safety inspector is forced to fly out to a remote nuclear power plant isolated in the desert to bring it back online. Once inside the facility, mysterious clues and strange behaviors cause her to have doubts about the sanity, and perhaps identities, of the two employees onsite.

The film hits theaters March 17 then lands on VOD and Digital HD March 21, 2017. Atomica stars Dominic Monaghan (The Lord of the Rings, Pet), Tom Sizemore (Heat) and Sarah Habel (Whip It).

Last week I had a quick chat about the film with director Daagen Merrill about the film.

RoboCop 2

11 March 2017 5:15 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It’s ugly, it’s violent, it’s graphic novelist Frank Miller’s nasty vision through and through. Scream Factory’s Collector’s Edition brings out the amazing backstory of the production of this stop-motion- intensive first sequel to RoboCop.

Hugh Jackman, Noomi Rapace for Michael Mann's Ferrari biopic

8 March 2017 1:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Mar 9, 2017

Hugh Jackman and Noomi Rapace are in talks to star in Michael Mann's Ferrari biopic. So start your engines.

Hugh Jackman may have finally said goodbye to the role that made him a movie star in Logan this past weekend, but he looks ready to celebrate by taking on a part that requires a whole lot more time in the kitchen than the gym with Ferrari, a new biopic from Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral). Deadline broke the news that Jackman and Noomi Rapace of the original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus fame are in talks to take on the roles of Enzo and Linda Ferrari.

The film, which details a relationship that was apparently as high octane as Enzo’s famed sports cars, has been a project Mann has been developing for decades, originally starting work on it with the late great Sydney Pollack. »

45 Years (Andrew Haigh)

Andrew Haigh’s third feature as a director, 45 Years, is an excellent companion piece to its 2011 predecessor, Weekend. The latter examined the inception of a potential relationship between two men over the course of a weekend, whereas its successor considers the opposite extreme. Again sticking to a tight timeframe, the film chronicles the six days leading up to a couple’s 45th wedding anniversary. Though highly accomplished, Weekend nevertheless suffered from a tendency towards commenting »

Netflix Pays $105M to Reunite Scorsese, De Niro, Pesci and Pacino

28 February 2017 10:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With its dominance in television already secured, the Netflix streaming service has been branching out to narrative features in recent years, with films such as Beasts of No Nation and the upcoming Bright, which released its first trailer during the Oscars this weekend. The streaming service has now made another bold move to acquire a highly-anticipated film, director Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, which reunites silver screen legends Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. Netflix reportedly shelled out $105 million for the global rights to this film, which is eyeing a 2019 release on Netflix that would come day-and-date with an Oscar-qualifying theatrical run.

IndieWire broke this story as the film continues its work in pre-production, which was previously set up at Paramount Pictures. Martin Scorsese still has a first-look production deal with Paramount Pictures that runs through 2019. Paramount also sold off the international rights to The Irishman for $50 million to Stx »

Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro’s ‘The Irishman’ Headed to Netflix — Exclusive

21 February 2017 6:11 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In a sign of the ongoing power shift in Hollywood, Martin Scorsese’s $100-million gangster movie “The Irishman,” his ninth starring Robert De Niro, has been scooped up by Netflix, which is in the process of closing a deal to release the movie to its 93 million subscribers in 190 countries.

The movie was going to be backed by Paramount Pictures, but with its 12-year chairman Brad Grey heading out the door, Scorsese’s team put together another package. As someone close to the deal put it, “Scorsese’s movie is a risky deal, and Paramount is not in the position to take risks. This way, he can make the project he wants.”

We now live in a world where Netflix is in a better position than any major studio to make a Martin Scorsese-Robert DeNiro gangster movie. Netflix would not comment on the deal.

The Visual Echoes of Michael Mann in Christopher Nolan’s ‘The Dark Knight’

7 February 2017 7:45 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While director Christopher Nolan has taken auteur status, even those of towering originality draw from the well. For what could very well be his masterpiece, The Dark Knight, Nolan clearly drew from the works of action cinema maestro Michael Mann. “I always felt Heat to be a remarkable demonstration of how you can create a vast universe within one city and balance a very large number of characters and their emotional journeys in an effective manner,” Nolan told Variety, confirming he screened the film for all of his production heads before shooting his 2008 blockbuster.

A new video essay essay by Glass Distortion titled The Dark Knight: Visual Echoes explores these connections in a lovely dual-image structure. From masked robberies to dark-blue night skies, Nolan has looked to one of the best for inspiration. Still, the sign of a true artist is taking the things that inspire you and turning them on their head, »

All the Ways 'The Dark Knight' Borrowed from 'Heat' Revealed

6 February 2017 3:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has long cited Michael Mann's 1995 crime epic Heat as an inspiration for his best-loved Batman film. 

For casual viewers, the opening heist scene in which The Joker (Heath Ledger) steals from the mob has the most easily recognizable callbacks (and even features Heat star William Fichtner in the key role as the bank employee who takes a stand against the Joker's men). 

Now, an excellently crafted video from Glass Distortion delves into the visual cues The Dark Knight takes from Heat, as well as other films in Mann's catalogue: L.A. TakedownThe Insider, and Collateral.

The Dark Knight Borrowed Scenes from Michael Mann Movies

6 February 2017 2:14 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Movies borrow from other movies all the time.  This is common in Hollywood and it’s completely fine.   As long as something isn’t a total rip off and played off as an original work, it’s usually fine by most filmmakers.   Still though, when you find out about who borrowed from who, it really puts perspective on things.  When I found out the Christopher Nolan borrowed from Michael Mann for The Dark Knight, I was surprised.  Actually, really surprised.  As it turns out Nolan actually screened Michael Mann’s “Heat” for all his department heads before going into production, he say once: “I

Great Job, Internet!: A closer look at The Dark Knight’s debt to Michael Mann

6 February 2017 12:18 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Michael Mann’s one of those filmmakers whose greatest films inspire fierce debate. An argument can and has been made that nearly all of his movies (except for The Keep, maybe) is his masterpiece, whether its prestige period pieces like Last Of The Mohicans and Public Enemies or the gnarly digital pulp of Blackhat and Collateral. Nearly everyone agrees, though, that Heat is up there, an operatic meditation on cops and robbers that still manages to function as an all-time great action flick.

Chief among that movie’s fans is director Christopher Nolan, who cited it repeatedly as an inspiration for his own (arguable) masterwork, The Dark Knight. A new video essay explores just how much Nolan was able to match the tonal, topical, and even kinetic feel of that movie. (Collateral and The Insider are also featured, though to a much lesser extent.)

Watch a ‘Heat’ Script-to-Screen Comparison as Michael Mann Talks His New Cut of ‘Ali’

18 January 2017 8:52 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The relationship between a screenwriter and an actor is an interesting thing. A writer can pen the most precious monologue they’ve ever written, only to hand it over to an actor who cuts it down to a single line, or even a look or a nod. That is, if the writer’s work passes through the producers and director unscathed. Still, like the process from filming to editing, a script needs to evolve as it is passed into the hands of the people actually uttering the lines. This is one of the reasons a new video essay by VashiVisuals is so fascinating. It subtly reveals the minutiae of an actor’s job. They trim lines, cutting out fat. They’ll change a tense, add a hesitation, or switch “these guys” to just “them.” Somewhere in this whirlwind, they bring life to the character, taking a beautifully written character arc »

Third Time’s a Charm for Michael Mann’s ‘Ali’ Commemorative Edition Cut

17 January 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Times change,” director Michael Mann says of what prompted him to revisit his 2001 Muhammad Ali biopic “Ali” for a “commemorative edition” Blu-ray. The new cut hits shelves today, on what would have been Ali’s 75th birthday. “What I was interested in, particularly now, was making more tangible the forces that were raised against him, all his adversaries, and linking them in a strong way.”

A director’s cut of the film was released in 2004, injecting eight-and-a-half minutes of material that both amplified the political strife of the times and deepened Ali’s kinship with sports journalist Howard Cosell, among other things. For the new release, Mann has pulled some of those Cosell elements back while keeping the political material in tact, shaving and trimming elsewhere for the shortest cut yet — though one still clocking in at a robust 151 minutes.
