'Star Wars 8' Gets 'Captain America' Production Designer

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As anticipation grows for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, arriving in theaters this weekend, Star Wars: Episode VIII is firming up its behind-the-scenes team. Rick Heinrichs has officially come aboard the project to serve as production designer. His previous movies include Captain America: The First Avenger and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Aside from the June announcement that Rian Johnson will write and direct both Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX, Rick Heinrichs is the only other confirmed crew member announced regarding these follow-ups to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We reported in August that Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley will be back for the sequels. That has never been confirmed by Disney or LucasFilm.

Star Wars: Episode VIII is slated to hit theaters sometime in 2017, following Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off, »

Watch: 20-Minute Auteur Analysis Of The Coen Brothers’ Career

24 November 2014 10:34 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Among the most influential and important filmmakers of their generation, The Coen Brothers continue to pump out modern masterpieces (“Fargo," “No Country For Old Men," “Barton Fink," “A Serious Man”), solid genre-subverting efforts (“True Grit,” “Miller’s Crossing,” "The Big Lebowski," perhaps the greatest noir-comedy of all time), as well as the occasional dud (“The Ladykillers,” “Intolerable Cruelty”). As filmmakers, Joel and Ethan Coen find a sweet spot between technical and thematic predictability and subversive originality. There are many visual approaches, character archetypes and themes that link their films, yet they still manage to construct works that are original and unpredictable, especially when those works are expected to fit inside the mold of a certain genre. Vimeo user Grant Pichla’s twenty-minute dissection covers the brothers’ use of similar themes, characters, dialogue and visual styles, their tendency to create »

Tara Reid Flaunts Bikini Bod on the Beach in Hawaii, Shows Off Super-Slim Figure—See the Pics!

21 November 2014 11:58 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Tara Reid knows how to flaunt her bikini bod when the paps come out to play.  The 39-year-old star was recently spotted on the beach in Hawaii where she was snapped showing off her slim figure while splashing around in the ocean. Reid rocked an itty bitty colorful bikini that showed off her skinny frame and accessorized her beachwear with a cute heart necklace as she let her bright blond locks blow in the wind.  The Big Lebowski star has made headlines for her bikini bod on numerous occasions. In August, she shared an Instagram snap in which she's wearing her tiniest two piece yet while seductively captioning the shot, "Do you like my beads."  And in »

Dude, This 'Big Lebowski'-Themed Wedding Is Amazing

19 November 2014 3:20 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

In the viral age, it's definitely not a rarity to see two people theme their wedding around a particular movie or franchise. We've seen everything from Star Trek to... well, Shrek, and it's always fun to see just how far some people take it. Our new favorite movie-themed wedding is tied to The Big Lebowski, and these two went for it. Big time. In order to Lebowski-up their nuptials, Chelsea and Jesse rented a bowling alley, played tracks off the film's soundtrack all night, served White Russians and got their pal -- who looks a lot like John Goodman's Walter character -- to officiate the wedding. Oh, and that's definitely not all. Check out some of the images below (with bonus video) and there's more over at their Flickr page. We think the Dude...

Watch: Hell Awakens In New Trailer And Pics For Hellishly Delayed 'Seventh Son'

17 November 2014 10:34 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On paper, "Seventh Son" has potential. The cast includes veterans Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore ("The Big Lebowski" reteam), rising stars Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington, along with uh, Ben Barnes, in a Ya adaptation directed by Sergey Bodrov ("Mongol")—what could go wrong? Well, apparently a lot. Shot way back in the spring of 2012, nearly three years and many release date bumps later, "Seventh Son" is finally set to open in cinemas, and a new international trailer is here. Based on the sci-fi series "The Spook's Apprentice,” the movie tells the tale of Master Gregory (Bridges), who plucks an unassuming farmhand named Tom Ward (Barnes) to train in the dark arts, to help him track down the evil witch Mother Malkin (Moore), who he had imprisoned years ago. What follows is the usual quest-y stuff with prophecies and monsters....lots and lots of CGI monsters. "Seventh Son" arrives on February 6, 2015 (unless it gets. »

Julianne Moore Becomes Oscar Frontrunner!

13 November 2014 9:22 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The whole year, I have been looking for The Oscar season frontrunner for Best Actress. I was hoping Shailene Woodley from "The Fault in Our Stars" would squeak in, but now, the lovely, talented, and ultra-sweet Julianne Moore is the one to beat!

Her double whammy performances for "Map to the Stars" and "Still Alice" solidify that notion. And just this morning, the Palm Springs International Film Festival just called her The best actress of the year! Moore will be receiving the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, at the festival's Awards Gala.

I can't wait! I will be on the red carpet to chat it up with the fantastic Miss Moore! She will be joining the equally talented Eddie Redmayne from "The Theory of Everything" at the gala where the actor is set to receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor.

Here's the full press release from the Psiff:

Exclusive Bad Turn Worse Clip Has a Plan To Get the Money

13 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I've heard nothing but fantastic things about the new film Bad Turn Worse and this clip "Money" certainly backs up a lot of them.  As a native Texan its refreshing to see a film that, by all appearances so far at least, plays with an ever so slightly heightened version of the state's flavor without making it a pandering caricature. The film was written by Dutch Southern (let's stop for a moment and tip our hat to that name) and was directed by Simon Hawkins and Zeke Hawkins.  It stars Mackenzie Davis (AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire," What If), Jeremy Allen White (Showtime’s “Shameless"), Mark Pellegrino (The Big Lebowski, CW’s “Supernatural"), and veteran William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises, Fox’s “24” Series).  The film opens in select theaters Nationwide and VOD platforms Friday, November 14th from Starz Digital.  Hit the jump for our Bad Turn Worse clip.

Julianne Moore Named Best Actress At Palm Springs International Film Festival

13 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Julianne Moore might be the hottest actress in the Oscar race this year, and most voters haven’t even seen her film yet. This four-time Oscar nominee and Emmy winner for Game Change is considered overdue for a win. Still Alice, in which she plays a victim of early-onset Alzheimer’s, offers her a great opportunity to finally take home that statuette, and today the Palm Springs International Film Festival announced that she will receive the Actress prize at this year’s gala on January 3. Eddie Redmayne was previously announced for the fest’s Actor prize, and both are considered front-runners in the Oscar race, so Psiff is just jumping on the bandwagon.

Every precursor award a contender can get just makes them seem more inevitable for the final win. Moore certainly is deserving, and it is looking like her year. In May, she won the Best Actress prize at »

Coens' 'Hail, Caesar!' gets a release date, Roger Deakins talks going back to film

29 October 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Universal Pictures has announced that the Coen brothers' "Hail, Caesar!," starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes and Scarlett Johansson, among others, will be released on Feb. 5, 2016. That effectively removes it from much awards season discussion that year, but you could sort of gather that, given the subject matter and apparent tone of the film. Like "The Hudsucker Proxy," "The Big Lebowski" and "Burn After Reading" — romps that came after heady prestige pics like "Barton Fink," "Fargo" and "No Country for Old Men" — "Hail, Caesar!" looks like the boys just having a bit of fun. What's interesting about the film, which begins shooting in Los Angeles next month, is that it marks cinematographer Roger Deakins' first trip back to the world of celluloid since his last collaboration with the filmmaker siblings, "True Grit." That was four years ago. He has since embraced digital photography, preferring the Arri Alexa camera on films like "In Time, »

Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar! Set for Release on February 5, 2016

29 October 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has set a Hail, Caesar! release date for the next film from writers/directors Joel and Ethan Coen.  The comedy has been slated for release on February 5, 2016, which marks the first 1st Quarter release date for a Coen Brothers film since 2004’s The Ladykillers.  The film takes place in 1950s Hollywood, during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and “follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.”  The incredible ensemble cast is led by Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, and Jonah Hill.  More on this curious choice of release date for Hail, Caesar! after the jump. It’s been a decade since a Coen Brothers film wasn’t released in the fall, in the heat of awards season, so it’s a bit odd to see Hail, »

Film Review: Keanu Reeves in Ludicrous Premise as ‘John Wick’

24 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Keanu Reeves has been in a lot of dogs over the years, but rarely has he left such a high body count while avenging one of them. “John Wick” is a brutal revenge thriller where Reeves is a ex-mob enforcer who goes on a murderous rampage leaving blood on every doorstep to avenge the death of his dog.

Despite that chuckle-inducing premise, “John Wick” isn’t the dog I expected, but then again that’s not saying much.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Wick is another of those crime thrillers that begins at the end. We see Keanu crash his SUV, stumble out bleeding and then watch a video on his phone and pass out, and flashbacks ensue. In the interest of time we skip over his wife dying in a terse 5 minutes or so, while the next 20 are consumed by the sights of Reeves making coffee, grieving, and then getting a farewell »

Blu-ray Review: Bowling Comedy ‘Kingpin’ Rolls Onto Blu-ray

21 October 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Before 1998’s “The Big Lebowski” there was 1996’s “Kingpin”, the Farrelly brothers bowling comedy that didn’t have the narrative intricacies of the Coen brothers’ classic, but had plenty of jokes about middle-aged men playing the sport. Today finds the release of “Kingpin” to Blu-ray for the first time, coming with only one new special feature.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The occasion of “Kingpin” is related less to marking a point in American cinematic history than to note the upcoming release of “Dumb and Dumber To,” the next film from the Farrelly brothers and their bizarre set of Hollywood gross outs. This bowling movie was a followup to “Dumb & Dumber,” and certainly saw the filmmaking duo following some of the same course (by literally making a buddy road movie), with the gross-out humor that became huge of them. With films like “There’s Something About Mary” and “Me, Myself & Irene” coming after it, »
