Gooding and [...] »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.
And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

The NFL Draft is so inherently exciting for sports fans that to release a “ticking clock” thriller about the day leading up to the event feels less like a good story idea than it does a way to generate excitement for the upcoming event, while cramming in as much team merchandise as the producers will allow. Draft Day, a new film from director Ivan Reitman, is only intermittently exciting and boasts few surprises, as well as a flat performance from Kevin Costner.
In a move that some sports movie fans may consider sacrilege, Costner has abandoned baseball for football. Here, he plays Sonny Weaver, Jr., an ambitious but hot-headed Cleveland Browns general manager trying to deal with the fallout of a potentially shoddy trade that he agreed to 12 hours before the NFL draft. He took Seattle’s first-round draft pick spot for the Browns’ first-round selections for the next three years. »

Jon Hamm is a sucker for baseball movies and a die-hard Cardinals fan, but that’s only part of the reason he chose to make Million Dollar Arm. Directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl), the film, inspired by true events, tells the redemption tale of sports agent J.B. Bernstein (Hamm), a real-life Jerry Maguire who strikes out on his own only to have the ace defensive lineman he’s been trying to land as a client ditch him for a big corporate agency. So in a Hail Mary pass to save his business, Bernstein hightails it »

Seven years ago, writer-director John Carney's musical drama Once became an indie hit as it explored the lives of two musicians and the emotional impact of creating music together. Carney's latest, Begin Again, explored similar themes, as evidenced by it debuting last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival under its original title Can a Song Save Your Life?.
"Many of the big decisions of my life were made with the record playing," Carney told THR last September, days after the movie screened. "What I would like to see people come away with for this film is music is integral to the way we communicate and the way we make decisions."
Like Once, Begin Again focuses on a music-making couple, this time played by Keira Knightley and Adam Levine, who move to New York as a songwriting team but soon break up. Knightley's Gretta is left to pick up »

The dresses, the speeches, the… pizza — the Oscars can be one, big, beautiful mess. Sometimes we love to hate them, but when all is said and done, it’s always a delight to see your favorite film of the year take home the gold. However, according to this behind-the-scenes video of the Oscars TV truck, we’ve been watching the glitzy awards ceremony all wrong. It seems that the best action takes place not on the stage, but where a bunch of guys sit hunched over a desk and shout wildly at some TV monitors. You’ve probably stumbled across Cuba Gooding Jr.’s 1996 Oscar acceptance speech at some point during your Internet travels. Gooding took home the award for Best Supporting Actor in the Tom Cruise-starring Jerry Maguire. The speech that...

Event's director hopes initiative will revive La as a go-to location and result in a new clutch of classic movies
When Hollywood reigned supreme in the film industry, movie buffs were frequently able to spot characteristic landmarks of Los Angeles on the big screen.
From the distinctive boulevard palms in Beverly Hills Cop to the Green Harbour bridge for the bungee jump in To Live and Die in La and the compelling backdrop for Chinatown, the city made its mark on the movies. Now, with the industry shrinking and studios moving to countries with bigger subsidies and incentives for film-making, Hollywood's attention is returning home.
The Los Angeles film festival celebrates the city's movie culture with a new section devoted to movies made in and about La. The local industry reached its peak in 1996, the year Tom Cruise starred in Jerry Maguire, when the number of feature film location shooting »

This would be Zellweger's first movie in four years. Perhaps "The Whole Truth," an indie directed by Courtney Hunt ("Frozen River"), can help revive her once-acclaimed career. In the early 2000s, the actress enjoyed many critical and commercial successes, from "Jerry Maguire" to "Chicago" to the "Bridget Jones Diary" movies. And she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for "Cold Mountain" in 2004.
Choosing the indie route could be a smart strategy for the 44-year-old. Hey, look what it did for her former "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" co-star, »

Vietnam vet Frank Vega (Trejo) now runs an East L.A. community center where he trains young boxers to survive in and out of the ring.

As much as we talk about the stats and trends of the Oscars, each year of the awards seems to present us with a new piece of history. This year, Dallas Buyers Club could make history as the first film to win both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in a film that did not receive a Best Director nomination. While Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto seem to be locked into their wins, this did provide an interesting jumping off point to look at the recent history of this category.
Here are the films in the past 25 years that have managed a Best Actor and Supporting Actor nomination:
1989: Driving Ms. Daisy – Morgan Freeman and Dan Ackroyd
1993: Schindler’s »

Giving a memorable Oscar acceptance speech is almost as important as giving a great performance. I mean, how else will people remember if you even won or not if they can’t remember your acceptance speech? To wit, VH1 has come up with 5 easy tips every Oscar winner should remember when they accept their award this Sunday night.
1) Make The Music Your Own Personal Soundtrack
The Oscars don’t have their own pit orchestra to entertain the audience in between segments. The musicians are there to “politely” signal to winners that their time is up and they should vacate the stage immediately.
However, actors are hams and actors don’t want to give up their moment in the spotlight. Most winners awkwardly dip out when the music starts to play, but those people are amateurs.
Consider Julia Roberts‘s win for Erin Brockovitch in 2001. Now, I don’t remember much »

Cameron Crowe is an absolute favourite of mine but he still doesn’t have a title for his new film starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, although, maybe it’ll just become Untitled for some clever marketing reason? No? We don’t know either.
Anyway, the Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire director has also plucked the talents of John Krasinski, Danny McBride, Rachel McAdams, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin, Michael Chernus and Ivana Milicevic for his Hawaii-based narrative, and Bill Murray was also previously rumoured. All we know so far is that Cooper plays a contractor named Brian Gilcrest who lives on the island and ends up working with Emma Stone – an Air Force pilot of some sorts and maybe called Ng – to stop a weapons satellite. We also know that they might well have a bit of a past and a connection to Jack Johnson and the Dharma Initiative. Those »
