First Look: In 'Pawn Sacrifice,' Tobey Maguire Channels Chess Master Bobby Fischer (Video)

23 July 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Set during the 1972 World Chess Championship, in "Pawn Sacrifice" (Bleecker Street, September 18) Tobey Maguire plays brilliant but troubled Brooklyn chess maverick Bobby Fischer as he faces off against his level-headed Russian rival Boris Spassky (Liev Schreiber) in the most famous chess match ever. Fischer struggles to keep his head on straight, which drives his various handlers nuts, because he can't be counted on to even show up. Ed Zwick is a director who can handle intimate television ("Relativity," "Once and Again") and epic spectacle ("Courage Under Fire," "The Last Samurai," "Blood Diamond," "Glory"); this drama combines both. Zwick got a great performance out of Schreiber in "Defiance"; he is also strong here. Maguire has never been better; this could mark a comeback for him. The movie scored at Toronto 2014 and was acquired by Bleecker Street which has so far delivered modest art-house hits »

R.I.P. James Horner: A top tier contributor to cinematic music

23 June 2015 8:44 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It was with great sadness that we learned yesterday of the death of composer James Horner at just 61 years old. Horner died in a plane crash, piloting a small aircraft that went down a day ago in California. The composer is a multiple Oscar winner, taking home Academy Awards for Best Original Score and Best Original Song for Titanic, marking just one of his many collaborations with filmmaker James Cameron. All told, Horner was nominated by the Academy ten times, with various other nominations and wins to his credit. He was a well respected musician and giant in the industry, so he will certainly be missed in a big way. Horner was cited by the Academy for his work on not just Titanic, but also Aliens, An American Tail, Apollo 13, Avatar, A Beautiful Mind, Braveheart, Field of Dreams, as well as House of Sand and Fog.

Titanic Composer James Horner Dies in Plane Crash

22 June 2015 9:48 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Very sad news to report tonight as composer James Horner has died in a plane crash at the age of 61. Reports came in earlier this evening that a small aircraft registered to Horner had crashed and that the pilot had been killed. THR reports that his assistant, Sylvia Patrycja, has confirmed Horner’s death. "We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent," Patrycja posted on Facebook on Monday night. "He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support and love and see you down the road." Horner won an Oscar for Best Score for Titantic and for Best Original Song for “My Heart Will Go On”, the anthem for every teenage girl who saw that movie a hundred times. That may seem like hyperbole, but the score sold over 27 million copies worldwide. Horner, who worked frequently with James Cameron, was also nominated »

Jack Reacher 2 lands new director

19 May 2015 10:39 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Cruise is set to return to play Jack Reacher again - and he's reuniting with his The Last Samurai director...

Jack Reacher may not have been the biggest hit of Tom Cruise's career, but it grossed a cool $218m at the box office off a $60m budget. That got it over the sequel line, should all concerned want to make one.

And now they do.

Tom Cruise is set to return as Reacher in a new adventure that's going to be based on the most recent of author Lee Child's novels, Never Go Back. This time though, Christopher McQuarrie - who's currently putting the finishing touches to this summer's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation - won't be directing. Instead, we now learn that the job has gone to Ed Zwick.

Zwick has directed Tom Cruise before, in The Last Samurai. And his impressive CV also includes the likes of Courage Under Fire, »

10 Young Actresses Who Could Be The Next Meg Ryan

8 April 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With movies like When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, French Kiss, and many more, Meg Ryan became America’s sweetheart and the face of the romantic comedy in the 1990s. While she occasionally took a grittier, more serious role, like in Courage Under Fire, she consciously cultivated her public persona — for instance, she reportedly was offended by the offer to play Clarice Starling in Silence of the Lambs. While Ryan is still very much working, and still endearing to boot, there hasn’t been an actress in recent years that has really dominated the rom-com genre like she once did. Drew Barrymore came close for a minute. It looked like Renee Zellwegger might step into that role for a bit, and the same for Reese Witherspoon. Katherine Heigl and Kate Hudson gave it a shot, and Rachel McAdams and Emma Stone both seem like they could »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Sneakerheadz’

23 March 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With equal measures of bemusement and amazement, co-directors David T. Friendly and Mick Partridge zip around the world to examine a shoe-centric subculture in “Sneakerheadz,” their fleet and fly documentary about the designing, retailing, trading and fanatical stockpiling of unique sneakers — or kicks, as those who know the lingo call them — that drive obsessed collectors to a variety of extremes. The film’s zippy pacing, simpatico p.o.v. and sheer entertainment value doubtless will help stoke want-to-see enthusiasm among its target youth demographic when it hits multiple platforms in the fall. But don’t be surprised if respectful reviews and admiring word of mouth entice even older viewers who haven’t worn the sort of footwear exalted here since they sweated out high-school P.E. classes.

One interviewee only half-jokingly defines a sneakerhead as a fanatic “who will forgo paying the rent to buy a shoe they will never wear, »

Oscar Winner Laura Poitras Takes Us Behind the Scenes on 'Citizenfour,' Now on HBO

24 February 2015 10:57 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

During the opening minutes of "Citizenfour," it hits you that filmmaker Laura Poitras was actually filming Nsa whistleblower Edward Snowden from their first meeting. She shows us first hand what happened and takes us deep into his mind in her new documentary "Citizenfour," a New York Film Festival world premiere and Oscar winner for Best Documentary. It premiered on HBO February 23, the day after the Oscars. Poitras documents the eight days she spent in a Hong Kong hotel room with Snowden and Guardian journalists Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill as Snowden prepares to drop the bomb on the world. While it should not have been a shock that last year's winner of the International Documentary Association's Courage Under Fire Award was preparing a film on Snowden, the cone of secrecy surrounding the project meant that the announcement that the film was finished, breaking at the Nyff and hitting theaters October »
