Top 5 Oscars highlights: Julianne Moore finally won, power of 'Glory,' ...

23 February 2015 12:11 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

It’s been a long, crazy ride. That seems to be a sentiment echoed every year as the Oscar season comes to a close, having seen so many contenders become pretenders, front-runners changing with the announcement of every new precursor, and records kept or broken. It’s hard to put into words just what this year truly meant, and only time will tell if the academy’s choices really were the right ones, but for now, here are some of the things that stuck out as highlights: -Break- 1. Julianne Moore has an Oscar … at last! “Far from Heaven.” “Boogie Nights.” “The Hours.” “The End of the Affair.” Those are just the films for which Julianne Moore lost at the Oscars. There’s also “Safe,” “Magnolia,” “Short Cuts,” “The Kids Are All Right,” “The Big Lebowski,” “Children of Men,” and any number of great performances she wasn’t »

Concept Art From A Kung Fu Space Western By The Book Of Life Director

18 February 2015 1:43 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Jorge R. Gutierrez made his feature directorial debut with Book of Life, a charmingly designed, beautifully sincere musical comedy about The Day of the Dead. It’s a good picture, and will be remembered for more than scooping Pixar and their similar film.

As reported at Deadline, Gutierrez has made a deal to keep working with animation house Reel FX. Their next project doesn’t yet have a title, but it has a genre. In fact, it has several. It’s going to be a Kung Fu Space Western.

Here’s some concept art, which suggests the film will take place on some kind of Old West style generation starship. Where the Kung Fu comes into it isn’t at all obvious from this image.

The storyline apparently revolves around “the galaxy’s most charming outlaws, the leader of a funny, ragtag crew of rebel bandits that are put on »

‘SpongeBob’ Counts $55.4M Treasure; ‘Jupiter’ Down, ‘Son’ Up In Monday B.O. Actuals

9 February 2015 3:19 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

6th Update, Monday Actuals, 3:20 Pm: Paramount’s SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge Out Of Water came in with $635K less than its weekend estimate reported yesterday of $56M. Still, it’s a great gross for this time of year, especially when there aren’t a lot of kids out of school. Per Rentrak, only 1% of all K-12 and college students were off this Friday. That figure moves to 17% this Friday, and then 15% for the February 20-22 frame.

As reported this morning, Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s Jupiter Ascending dropped ducats and is now filing $18.37M while Universal/Legendary’s Seventh Son is a $100K better with a $7.2M actual. They’re in for a hammering this coming weekend as two R-rated mass-appeal pics hit the sked: Universal’s long-awaited E.L. James bestselling adaptation Fifty Shades Of Grey at an estimated 3,600 theaters and 20th Century Fox’s Kingsman: The Secret Service on »

Film Review: Following a Two-Year Delay, ‘Seventh Son’ Should Have Been Shelved

8 February 2015 1:47 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I can’t decide which is worse: the “fake deep talk” from Jeff Bridges in “Seventh Son” or the “angry whisper talk” from Eddie Redmayne in “Jupiter Ascending,” which also opened on Friday. Both speech impediments are ugly fish out of water, both films are getting punished by critics and both are underperforming at domestic box offices.

Ironically, both movies have also also been quite delayed and now we see why. “Jupiter Ascending” opened two days ago after initially being slated to open in July 2014. That film’s push back was justified to finish its extensive special effects, which “The Matrix” creators did without remembering to fix its laughable acting and weak story.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Also knowing it was in trouble, “Seventh Son” was originally supposed to open way back in Feb. 2013, but the film was pushed back once and then a second time to Feb. 2015. It even changed distribution »

17 moments of movie terror in the bathroom

5 February 2015 7:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From toilet-based scares to nasty encounters in the shower, here's a selection of 17 memorable moments of terror in the bathroom...

Nb: the following contains potential spoilers and scenes which may be considered Nsfw.

The scariest moments in horror are often the most intimate - this is why knives are a far nastier, button-pushing instrument of death than the gun. As the Joker famously put it in The Dark Knight, “You can savour all those little emotions...”

Intimacy may be the key to understanding why, in horror films, so many dreadful things tend to happen in bathrooms. The bathroom is often where we go to be by ourselves - either to answer the call of nature, brush our teeth, or simply relax in the bath after a hectic day at work. Equally, the water closet also sees us at our most vulnerable: naked, or at least with our trousers down, and »

'Seventh Son' Star Ben Barnes Really Loves 'The Fabulous Baker Boys' (Exclusive)

5 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In "Seventh Son," Ben Barnes plays the seventh son of a seventh son, a mystically indebted apprentice who goes on the road with Jeff Bridges, who plays a Spook, the last of a dying breed of knights who defends the innocent from the ghastly forces of darkness (led, in this case, by an incredibly over-the-top Julianne Moore as a fearsome witch). Barnes's Tom follows the Luke Skywalker trajectory of starting off as a slightly above-average farm boy to becoming the savior of the land.

And Barnes has some history with this kind of thing, having starred in the "Chronicles of Narnia" movies (with far more benevolent beasts). When we got to speak to Barnes about "Seventh Son," we asked him about how he came aboard the project, what it was like working with Bridges and his comely costar Alicia Vikander (don't worry - if you don't know who she is, »

Seventh Son's spellbinding Julianne Moore

3 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

A lifelong — or, at least, acting-career long — dream of Julianne Moore’s has finally come true.

“I’ve always wanted to play a wicked witch,” Moore says over the phone. “I think all of us always want to do that.”

Of course, the freshly Academy Award-nominated star of Still Alice is not talking about her role in that acclaimed film (more on that in a bit). Rather, she’s referring to Mother Malkin, an evil sorceress and sometimes dragon who’s out to destroy a medieval fantasy world in this month’s Seventh Son.

“It was great to play somebody that was so unambivalent about what she wanted,” Moore, 54, says of her part in the magic-and-monsters epic that co-stars Jeff Bridges as a veteran witch whacker and Ben Barnes (The Chronicles of Narnia’s Prince Caspian) as his young apprentice, the seventh boy of the title. The film was shot mostly in Vancouver, »

Julianne Moore and Jeff Bridges’ ‘Seventh Son’ Screening is a ‘Big Lebowski’ Reunion

31 January 2015 2:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dark magic, witches and “the Dude” (Jeff Bridges’ famed role in “The Big Lebowski”) prevailed at a special screening of Universal Pictures’ epic fantasy adventure “Seventh Son” in New York City on Friday night.

The film’s stars, Bridges and Julianne Moore — last seen together onscreen in the Coen brothers’ 1998 cult classic, 17 years prior — reunited at the Crosby Street Hotel for the first time since “Seventh Son” wrapped in 2012. The movie’s release was long delayed after Legendary Pictures parted ways with Warner Bros., originally on board to distribute the project.

With Bridges and Moore back together, the red carpet was abuzz with “Big Lebowski” talk. Is a follow-up to the slacker comedy in the works? Would Bridges ever bring back “the Dude”?

“Oh God yes, I would do a sequel,” Bridges told Variety. “I’ll do anything the Coen brothers ask me. I take that very seriously. But there’s nothing official… »

Inherent Vice review: Paul Thomas Anderson gets lost in adaptation

28 January 2015 2:55 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Paul Thomas Anderson; Screenwriter: Paul Thomas Anderson; Starring: Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone; Running time: 148 mins; Certificate: 15

With masterpieces like Boogie Nights and Magnolia tucked under his belt, Paul Thomas Anderson's new movies are inevitably threatened by the huge burden of expectation. A bold director who never shies away from a challenge, Anderson's latest effort tackles Thomas Pynchon's supposedly unfilmable novel Inherent Vice and bears all the hallmarks of his finest work – a terrific ensemble cast, acutely observed visual detail and a labyrinthine plot that weaves together disparate and desperate figures. Sadly on this occasion, such individually strong components fail to gel together as a whole and provide a consistently engaging experience.

The intriguing period at the start of the 1970s is the canvas for the story, which involves a stoner private detective known as 'Doc' (Joaquin Phoenix »

Inherent Vice: more marijuana misfire than stoner classic

25 January 2015 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Critics are comparing Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice to the stoner noir of The Big Lebowski – but, even with Joaquin Phoenix in The Dude role, it’s not in the same league

Three viewings in and I’m still not at all sure how I feel about Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice. But this has been true for me of all his recent movies. I thought the first half of There Will Be Blood was masterly film-making, and the second half was bogus, meandering, poorly workshopped tripe that couldn’t find the way to its own exit. I think The Master is a cold, self-effacing masterpiece, but it took me more than 10 viewings to come around to that opinion.

With Vice, I find most of the comparisons that critics are making unhelpful. The Big Lebowski and The Long Goodbye, the two foremost stoner-noirs, seem to have been more »

Class Disparities and Prostitution Tackled in Early Female Director's Drama

Pioneering woman director Lois Weber socially conscious drama 'Shoes' among Library of Congress' Packard Theater movies (photo: Mary MacLaren in 'Shoes') In February 2015, National Film Registry titles will be showcased at the Library of Congress' Packard Campus Theater – aka the Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation – in Culpeper, Virginia. These range from pioneering woman director Lois Weber's socially conscious 1916 drama Shoes to Robert Zemeckis' 1985 blockbuster Back to the Future. Another Packard Theater highlight next month is Sam Peckinpah's ultra-violent Western The Wild Bunch (1969), starring William Holden and Ernest Borgnine. Also, Howard Hawks' "anti-High Noon" Western Rio Bravo (1959), toplining John Wayne and Dean Martin.

Julianne Moore Says She Doesn’t Need a Memorial Service After MMI Salute

21 January 2015 4:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the heels of her second Golden Globe win and fifth Academy Award nomination, Julianne Moore, flanked by her husband and two children, sat back and soaked up the Museum of the Moving Image’s salute in her honor.

“You know when you’re young, you’ll pursue things without any knowledge of where they’ll lead, and not knowing how they’ll shape your life,” Moore professed to the crowd. “But because this is a retrospective, it’s forcing me to look back and consider what it was that led me here. A lot of it was luck, (and) it was almost certainly my interest in story.”

The 29th annual Mmi Salute served as a monument to her own story.

The event came at a time of change for the museum, which in 10 days will welcome Sony Pictures Classics founder and co-president Michael Barker into the co-chairman role previously assumed by Herbert S. »
