Ridley Scott’s The Martian Slotted For November 2015

2 August 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott is gunning for an Oscar – and if this fall’s buzzy Exodus: Gods and Kings doesn’t get him to that Dolby theatre stage (as it probably won’t, given the slew of competitors including Inherent Vice, Unbroken, Gone Girl and Interstellar), he’s already lined up his next attempt. The Gladiator director’s next film, sci-fi drama The Martian, has been shifted from its March 2016 date and set for a prime awards-season release date of November 25th, 2015.

That’s a big show of confidence in the project from 20th Century Fox. And perhaps the studio has good reason to be excited, seeing as Warner Bros.’ space-set drama Gravity shaped up into a major awards-season juggernaut last year. Based on the eBook by Andy WeirThe Martian follows an astronaut who becomes stranded on the Red Planet. With depleting oxygen and slimming options, he must reach his crew »

Emmys Drama Preview: Why Serials Knocked Procedurals Out of the Race

31 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It seems obvious to say, yet it’s still a striking thought: A procedural drama, historically a staple of television, is unlikely to ever win another best series Emmy — and, indeed, will probably struggle even to get nominated.

That’s reflected in this year’s nominees — all of them serialized — highlighting an appetite for such storytelling that has permeated not just television, where it has found its deepest and most satisfying roots, but multiple forms of entertainment.

Indeed, modern-day film franchises have adopted a serialized approach, as evidenced by the book-to-screen successes that have become such lucrative annuities, from “Harry Potter” and “The Lord of the Rings” to “Twilight” and “The Hunger Games.” Where James Bond’s adventures were once crafted into largely stand-alone affairs, the latest run starring Daniel Craig adopted a trilogy-like connection more reminiscent of Jason Bourne than vintage incarnations of 007.

There are many suspects for why »

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

28 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

Mad Max” Rules: For a film that didn’t have much interest in it going into Comic-Con, George Miller’s “Mad Max” (pictured, above) played huge for Warner Bros., earning raves from the thousands who watched the first trailer and action sequences from the film that rumbles into theaters next year, spreading positive word-of-mouth like wild fire across social media platforms. It’s certainly the darling of this year’s Con. »

6 Best & 6 Worst Historical Movie Epics Of The 2000s

15 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings landed earlier this week, and it certainly seems like a return to familiar territory for the veteran director, who has helmed several big-budget epics over the last decade. While the trailer itself was a little underwhelming, it did boast the stunning visuals we’ve come to expect from Ridley Scott movie and an impressive cast led by Christian Bale that also features Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Ben Kingsley, Aaron Paul and Sigourney Weaver.

Ever since the director resurrected the genre with Gladiator at the turn of the millennium, the historical epic has had a patchy track record at the box office to say the least, and it remains to be seen how his latest effort will fare. Exodus will need to be a great movie to stand any chance of commercial success, with a release »

First Look At Jamie Dornan’s Christian Grey In Fifty Shades Of Grey

18 June 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As much as it pains me to write this, one of the most anticipated book adaptations hitting screens in the near future – right up there with new Divergent and The Hunger Games installments – is Fifty Shades of Grey, based on a Twilight-fanfiction-turned-erotic-romance that somehow became the fastest-selling paperback of all time. Fans of the steamy book by E.L. James are likely scrutinizing the web daily for news about the adaptation, though very little has come out about the movie since it wrapped production in February. Today, however, those fans will be thrilled to get their first real look at mysterious billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), whose Bdsm-fueled romance with college student Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) powers Shades and two other books.

Dornan wasn’t the first choice for the tricky role - Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam was originally cast but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts with FX’s Sons of Anarchy. »

Christmas Day Release For Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’

2 May 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Weinstein Company has revealed that Big Eyes will be released for the 25th December this year.

Like most Burton outings, the film boasts an impressive cast featuring Amy Adams, Christoph WaltzKrysten Ritter and Terence Stamp, to name a few.  The film is based on 1950s artist Margaret Keane whose work always featured large-eyed children.  It follows her involvement with the feminist movement and a high profile lawsuit filed against her husband for claiming credit for her work.

It will be a battle for the ratings as Big Eyes will go up against comedy Hot Tub Time Machine 2, an untitled project from Cameron Crowe, Unbroken, which will be Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, and Rob Marshall’s ensemble piece Into The Woods featuring Burton favourite Johnny Depp.

Also from The Weinstein Company will be the eagerly awaited Alan Turing biopic, The Imitation Game, featuring Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley. »

The top 50 assholes in cinema

24 April 2014 5:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Andrew Blair 25 Apr 2014 - 06:29

They're despicable, smug and downright unpleasant. Andrew lines up his pick of 50 biggest unpleasant, sometimes heroic folk in cinema...

Nb: This article contains swearing and spoilers for numerous films. Bear in mind that it may be not safe for work, and if you haven't seen a film mentioned in a particular entry, do consider skipping to the next one.

Conflict drives drama. Unpleasant people create conflict. Thus, cinema is crammed with huge, provocative arseholes/assholes (we went with the latter on the headline, but now we're in the article, we're going more arse than ass). There are obviously too many to list, but we've provided you with a thought-provoking array of multi-faceted bell-endery. That said, feel free to copy and paste the phrase, "Nice list, but you forgot x" to save time when placing comments below! The 'nice' bit is not compulsory.

Drinking Buddies, out this week on Blu-ray and DVD

14 March 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'Ultra-low budgets and a decidedly fugly aesthetic have rendered his body of work an unappealing prospect to UK distributors'

Reading this on mobile? Click here to view

American indie demigod Joe Swanberg brings his "mumblecore" movement into the mainstream this week with Drinking Buddies, a story of two intersecting romances (a love quadrilateral, if you will) told against the backdrop of Chicago's craft brewery scene. It's the first Swanberg offering to reach UK shores since his breakout Hannah Takes The Stairs introduced Greta Gerwig to a grateful nation in 2007, though the director's apparent radio silence has not been for lack of trying.

Swanberg has written and directed more than a dozen films in the seven years since Hannah, most of them improvised riffs on the state of contemporary relationships, doused in self-reflexive anxiety (he has a tendency to cast himself as skeezy directors with names like Moe Kwanberg). Ultra-low budgets »

The movies that never win Oscars: Harry Potter, James Bond, more

27 February 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With more than 80 years of history under its belt, it's becoming much easier to pinpoint exactly the type of movies that'll win favour at the Oscars. Big-scale period epics, war films and musicals always tend to find favour with Academy voters, while on the acting front playing a President or a known historical figure is a sure-fire way to get attention.

But what about the movies that never get a look in? There are certain types of films - no matter how successful or how beloved by audiences - that simply never win big at the Oscars. Perhaps it's down to a lack of campaign push from the studio, the perception that they're not "Oscar movies", or Academy snobbery? Digital Spy takes a look at the films that are perennially ignored in the Best Picture race below...

Bad Editing and a Convoluted Story is the Real "Curse of the Midas Box"

26 February 2014 1:03 AM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

As the Percy Jackson and the Olympians franchise has shown us, good intentions aren’t enough to take a young adult fiction novel series and convert them from the page to the screen in a way that isn’t a chore to watch. The success of Harry Potter, though, has made just about every studio willing to take that gamble in the hopes that their sloppy but serviceable first effort will attract enough attention to generate a blockbuster film series. And while some attempts from this frenzy have given us solid gems like The Hunger Games, far more often we get stinkers like The Golden Compass, Percy Jackson, and now The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, a film where poor direction and editing drown out any saving grace efforts the exceptional cast (Michael Sheen, Lena Headey, Sam Neill) might have given it.
