TV Review: ‘Sharknado 2! The Second One’

28 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Around the time National Geographic produces its inevitable retrospective “The 2010s: What Was That All About?” historians should have a clearer understanding of why “Sharknado,” out of all the cheekily exploitative schlock movies programmed by Syfy, became a Twitter meme and cultural phenomenon. Fellow Syfy movies like “Sharktopus” and “Piranhaconda” must be kicking themselves. Inevitably, that mini-eruption spawned “Sharknado 2! The Second One,” which plops down into the summer, cheesy as ever, with an added infusion of conspicuous celebrity cameos that success has made possible. In that respect, it’s not just our fishy friends who can smell blood in the water.

Not surprisingly, the sequel indulges in all kinds of callbacks — treating the earlier version as if it were “Citizen Kane” — while relocating from Los Angeles to New York, after one very unfortunate flight (with Robert Hays, no less, as the pilot) that bears survivors Fin (Ian Ziering) and »

Kareena gets the Selfie wave on –screen

26 July 2014 2:35 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Selfie – this word has been personified literally by our very favorite B-town celebs, and has also officially made it into the dictionary this year!

While our B-Town celebs always take out time to click their selfies, the gorgeous Kareena Kapoor is on a different spree altogether. She will be seen clicking a selfie in the film too!

Amused, well for one particular scene in the film, it so happened that Kareena was sitting with the restaurant owner and is supposed to be chatting away to glory with him which matches completely with her reel life character. To improvise the scene Kareena then tells the restaurant owner to click a selfie. It was totally impromptu and Rohit decided to incorporate this scene in the film too!

A source close to Rohit Shetty confirmed and said, “Yes! It was totally impromptu of Kareena initiating to click a selfie, it was a jovial »

Rohit Shetty explores Mumbai City like never before for Singham Returns

20 July 2014 3:43 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Blockbuster director Rohit Shetty is always known to bring out the hidden gems from any place where he shoots. His shoots in Goa have always shown us the picturesque locations of the breathtaking city like never before.

But what we hear is that this time the director has shot in the exotic corners of Mumbai as the story of Singham Returns revolves around Mumbai city.

Rohit Shetty has not only shot in iconic sites of the city but also unexplored remote places and the bylanes of Mumbai to bring out the real character of the city. The team has shot in places which are rarely seen on the silver screen like Reay Road, Cotton Green, Urankhanwadi Chawl, Mahim Durgah, and Jj Fylover which are very difficult to shoot owing to the places being crowded.

Apart from these places Rohit has also managed to shoot in iconic places like Gateway of India, »

Rohit Shetty makes the Singham Returns team burn the midnight oil

18 July 2014 4:37 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Rohit Shetty’s forthcoming action film Singham Returns is based on the plot of Black Money which will see Ajay Devgn return as the famous cop Bajirao Singham.

What we hear is that director Rohit Shetty is not too fond of shooting during the nights, but the script of his upcoming film Singham Returns demanded to be shot at night extensively. This is the first time he has shot for maximum night schedules. As the Ajay Devgn starrer is about black money and illegal siphoning of funds, it needed to be symbolized by being shot in the dark of night.

As a result, Rohit and his unit spent several sleepless nights shooting till the wee hours of the morning.

Well, what dedication we must say!

Directed by Rohit Shetty, Singham Returns is all set to roar at the silver screen this Independence day.

"Godzilla" Roars, Sort Of

17 July 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Let’s face it; the new Godzilla movie was abysmal. Far beyond a flat script, the direction was the main culprit. Even Bryan Cranston obviously had no guidance and ended up a stuttering, underdeveloped Walter White mess. The action scenes, so well advertised in the trailer, were nothing to write home about. Then again, the last incarnation of Godzilla wasn’t much to write home about either. Starring Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno, and Hank Azaria, with Roland Emmerich directing on the heels of the wildly successful Independence Day, 1998’s Godzilla was a dud. Fan boys are still waiting for a worthy realization of the King of the Monsters, and Fox’s animated series, released in ’98 as a continuation of the film, doesn’t do much to help.

Box Office: Does 'Apes' Success Mean the Slump Is Over?

14 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For the past few weeks, box office observers (including this column) have been worried about a big summer slump. After all, summer revenues are down nearly 20 percent compared to the same point last year, and the overall take for 2014, which was ahead of the previous year's earnings in April, has since fallen to 4 percent below 2013's numbers. Last weekend's Independence Day haul was the lowest since 1999, when Will Smith had a rare bomb with "Wild Wild West."

Not that there have been many huge flops this summer, just a series of high-priced disappointments that earned well below expectations, from "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" to "Transformers: Age of Extinction." That lackluster streak has left pundits wondering whether there's still enough time and enough potential hit movies in the pipeline for 2014 to catch up to 2013. Would this weekend's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" spark a turnaround?

The short answer is no, »

SAG-aftra Board OKs TV Deal, Unveils Surplus

13 July 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Union actors will soon get a chance to dig into SAG-aftra’s new television deal reached with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers earlier this month. Ninety percent of SAG-aftra’s national board on Saturday, July 12, approved the new TV contracts, which top leadership has touted since negotiations wrapped on July 4. Still, rank-and-file reaction to the deal has been muted, in part because it was announced over the Independence Day holiday, but also because members and local officials told Backstage they had yet to see the fine print. Later this month, they’ll get that chance. Following the board’s approval, member ratification is set to begin after voting instructions are mailed on or about July 23. The ratification vote will be conducted online, although members can request a paper ballot.  “Comprehensive details of the agreement will be posted prior to the balloting period,” the union said.

Giuseppe Makes a Movie Movie Review

Title: Giuseppe Makes a Movie Director: Adam Rifkin A lot of independent filmmakers talk a good game about sacrificing for their art. Then there’s Giuseppe Andrews, who in ”Giuseppe Makes a Movie” literally wipes the ass (not once, but twice) of one of his alcoholic actors, who’s shit his pants. This and more is chronicled in director Adam Rifkin’s oddly engaging, briskly paced documentary snapshot of actor-musician-director Andrews, which gives an overview of the process he typically employs in shooting myriad $1,000 productions starring an assortment of tweakers, alcoholics and vagabonds from a trailer park in Ventura, California. As a young actor, Andrews had bit parts in “Independence Day” and “Never Been Kissed,”  [ Read More ]

The 1991 memo that predicted Hollywood's future

12 July 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In 1991, Jeffrey Katzenberg penned a legendary memo that called the future of Hollywood - and inspired Jerry Maguire. But what did it say?

Feature

On 11th January 1991, the-then head of The Walt Disney Company's motion picture division, Jeffrey Katzenberg, sent out a memo. Running to over 10,000 words, he sent this document to key higher-ups at the studio, noting that "it is meant for internal use only". Naturally, the memo leaked, and was widely ridiculed in the Hollywood trade press as a consequence. Thanks to the wonderful Letters Of Note, you can read it in full here.

If parts of this sound familiar, then it should: Cameron Crowe used Katzenberg's memo, entitled 'The World Is Changing: Some Thoughts On Our Business' as the basis for his 1996 hit, Jerry Maguire.

But re-reading Katzenberg's memo, over 20 years later, the now head of DreamWorks Animation called a lot of things right. In fact, given that as he wrote it, »

‘Big Brother’ Rises, Tops Thursday; Ok Start for ‘Welcome to Sweden’

11 July 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CBS reality veteran “Big Brother” bounced back from its low of last week to rule Thursday night’s ratings race, while other shows joined it in improving upon their scores from the pre-holiday night. It was an Ok start, meanwhile, for NBC comedy “Welcome to Sweden,” starring Amy Poehler’s brother Greg.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, CBS followed repeats of comedies “The Big Bang Theory” (1.7 rating/7 share in adults 18-49, 7.9 million viewers overall) and “The Millers” (1.3/5 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall) with “Big Brother” (2.0/7 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall), which grew 25% (0.4) from last week to stand as the night’s top show in young adults. The rise was not unexpected given that last Thursday was the eve of Independence Day; also, the conclusion of Wednesday’s episode portended some explosive happenings in the house that were recapped early on in Thursday’s hour.
