Indiana Jones named greatest movie character of all time in new poll

24 June 2015 1:34 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Swashbuckling adventurer played by Harrison Ford takes top spot in Empire survey despite studio Disney preferring to focus on new Star Wars movies

Indiana Jones has been named the greatest movie character of all time ahead of James Bond, Batman and Han Solo in a new poll.

Harrison Ford, 72, takes two places (Jones and Solo) in the extensive survey of 10,000 film fans for Empire magazine, but there is only one female character, Alien’s Ellen Ripley, in the top 10. Sigourney Weaver’s battling warrant officer lands in fifth ahead of The Joker, Die Hard’s John McClane, Fight Club’s Tyler Durden, Darth Vader and The Dude from the Coen brothers’ The Big Lebowski.

Rob Zombie Reveals First Look at Malcolm McDowell in Halloween-Set Horror Film 31

16 June 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ready to see the legendary Malcolm McDowell like you've never seen him before? Rob Zombie has revealed the first look at McDowell as Father Napoleon-Horatio-Silas Murder in the upcoming Halloween-set horror film 31.

Zombie revealed the image of McDowell in 31 via Facebook: "Here is your first look at Malcolm McDowell from my next film 31. Malcolm plays Father Napoleon-Horatio-Silas Murder the mastermind behind the most dangerous game alive 31."

In April, Zombie's 31 was acquired for North American distribution by Alchemy. No release date has been revealed at this time, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on Zombie's latest movie.

"Welcome to my next film. It is called 31. It is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man. »

Season finale review: 'iZombie' - 'Blaine's World': Major victory?

9 June 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"iZombie" wrapped up a really entertaining first season tonight, and I have a few thoughts on the finale, followed by a lot of thoughts from executive producers Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, coming up just as soon as I am to serotonin what Milton Hershey was to chocolate... "iZombie" is a show with a lot of moving parts, and "Blaine's World" was no different in that regard. It not only gave us a pretty thorough accounting of the Case of the Week — albeit one connected to all the business with Max Rager, which looks to be the main thrust of season 2 — but had to leave room for Major to go full-on Travis Bickel with the zombies at Meat Cute (scored to '80s synth classic "Der Komissar"), and for several reversals in terms of who would stay a zombie, who would be cured, and who might just die.

25 Years In La Part 2: 'Shawshank,' 'Sleepwalkers,' and 'Sticks and Stones'

9 June 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday, I wrote about my first year in Los Angeles, which was all just a matter of settling in. Remember, when I moved to La, I knew a grand total of zero people who lived or worked here. I was not laden with contacts and strolling into a situation where everything was guaranteed to work out. Scott Swan and I took a huge chance when we packed up and moved out, and I am so horrified by how little money we had saved that I'm almost embarrassed to say the number. I was insanely naive when I arrived in town. I am still haunted by a choice we made in those early days, when we answered an ad in one of the trades that was looking for writers willing to work on a "per sketch" basis. I forget how much the rate was… $100 or so, but definitely not more than that… »

Interview: A conversation with Man Up screenwriter Tess Morris

5 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr chats with Man Up screenwriter Tess Morris

Nestled away just off embankment in London sits Whitehall Place. Amongst the opulence and heritage sits ‘The Corinthia’. A hotel for which the phrase ‘five star’ was invented and also where I met Tess Morris. Diane Keaton fan, When Harry Met Sally expert and lover of Duran Duran. Someone who is funny, knowledgeable and above all screenwriter for new rom-com Man Up.

Mc: So in terms of your writing do you have a writing routine… so when you wake up in the morning and, you know, apart from your ablutions?

Tm: Apart from my ablutions which are obviously very important…umm..not really I think I’m supposed to say yes, but I don’t really have like a sort of set routine. I think it would probably help if I did but I tend to work quite well like very early. »

Rob Zombie Reveals New Photo from 31

3 June 2015 12:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

David Ury as Schizo-Head, a devilish denizen of Murder World—the kill-to-survive setting of Rob Zombie's upcoming movie 31—is featured in the latest look at Zombie's Halloween-set horror film.

In April, Zombie's 31 was acquired for North American distribution by Alchemy. No release date has been revealed at this time, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on Zombie's latest movie.

"Welcome to my next film. It is called 31. It is the story of five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man... a game called 31.

31 has no rules. 31 has no boundaries. It is ever so simple. Do whatever you can do to kill your opponent before they kill you. Keep this up for 12 hours and freedom is yours. »

"Vice" Has its Virtues

27 May 2015 9:37 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Paul Thomas Anderson has never been shy about his influences. While on the press tour for Inherent Vice, the writer/director listed films as varied as The Big Sleep and Airplane as contributing to his approach (though everything from Dragnet to The Big Lebowski is visible to the discerning eye), and at various points during Vice’s 149-minute running time, they all glimmer briefly before circling around, like horses on a carousel (which may or may not be caught in a tornado). The mixture is not always consistent, but it is frequently electric, and with its sprawling cast of Angeleno squares, burnouts, activists, and noir archetypes (most of whom under some form of chemical influence), it weirdly reflects the cacophonous landscapes of 70s America. Indeed, for all his bold ventures into the past, Anderson has always felt most comfortable in the Watergate decade, free from the strictures of big statements, »

PS4 exclusive ‘Until Dawn’ is coming August this year

26 May 2015 9:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

PS4 exclusive scare ‘em up, Until Dawn, will be released on Tuesday August 25th in the Us, with the European release following a few days later on the 28th. Little has been revealed regarding Supermassive Games’ PS4 exclusive lately, but PlayStation Blog has today dropped the release dates, as well as a few more juicy pieces of information.

Most exciting (for me, anyway) is the news that Peter Stormare has officially joined the cast for the game. You might remember Mr. Stormare from his roles in Jurassic Park: The Lost World (he was a bad guy), Fargo (he was a bad guy), Arrow (he was a bad guy), and The Big Lebowski (he was a nihilist, and they don’t care about anything). One of the great character actors of our time, Peter Stormare will surely be an interesting addition to the cast. And probably a bad guy. Featuring »

And the Cannes Film Festival Winners Are...

24 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Cannes Film Festival is the most prestigious film festival in the world, and its top prize, the Palme d’Or, is film's highest honor. Consequently, people have really fervid feelings about what they think should win. Regardless of which film takes whichever award, it’s usually controversial. This year, the main competition jury, considered by some to be one of the best juries in the festival’s long, illustrious history, was headed by Joel and Ethan Coen (Fargo, No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski), and featured Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Jake Gyllenhaal, Xavier Dolan (Mommy), Sophie Marceau, Rossy de Palma, Rokia Traoré, and Sienna Miller. Here are the films that won at this year’s Cannes, as reported by Indiewire. Let the angry think pieces commence.Palme d'Or: Dheepan, directed by Jacques Audiard Grand Prix: Son of Saul, directed by Laszlo Nemes Best Director: Hou Hsiao »

Roger Deakins lensing Blade Runner 2

20 May 2015 10:02 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Roger Deakins will reteam with director Denis Villeneuve for the long-mooted Blade Runner sequel...

Ridley Scott may be stepping away from the director's chair for the long-gestating Blade Runner 2, but another filmmaking legend will be getting behind the camera, at least. Cinematographer. Roger Deakins, the director of photography who has been nominated for a total of 12 Oscars - yet inexplicably has yet to be awarded one by the Academy - has been tapped to reteam with his Prisoners collaborator Denis Villeneuve, the latter of whom has taken on directorial duties for Blade Runner 2.

While Deakins was not part of the 1982 original cult classic that featured Scott loosely adapting Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? into a hypnotically noirish mood piece, the cinematographer has a long career that includes many genre films. Most recently, he was the director of photography on Skyfall, but his career also includes such unforgettable work as No Country For Old Men, »

Focus Features Revives Gramercy Label: Now It's Indie Genre Films

20 May 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the wake of the resurgence of indie genre films, Focus Features has announced that the company has revived the Gramercy Pictures label "as branding for boldly imagined action, horror, and sci-fi genre movies," according to their press release. Read More: Is "It Follows" Paving the Way to a New Era for Indie Genre Films? This is a seismic shift from Gramercy's original inception, which released critical and box office hits such as "Fargo," "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "The Big Lebowski," "Being John Malkovich" and "Dazed and Confused." The new Gramercy appears to target the same market that made "It Follows," "What We Do in the Shadows" and "Ex Machina" recent genre hits.  "This renewed label reinforces Focus Features’ commitment to bringing a broad spectrum of entertainment to audiences that encompasses both commercial and specialty fare," the press release »

Focus Revives Gramercy Pictures for Genre, Launches with ‘Insidious 3′

20 May 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Focus Features has revived the Gramercy Pictures label — last seen in 2002 — as the genre brand for its action, horror and sci-fi movies.

Insidious: Chapter 3,” which opens June 5, will be the first title to carry the Gramercy brand. Focus, which went through an extensive reorganization two years ago, is a division of NBCUniversal.

“This renewed label reinforces Focus Features’ commitment to bringing a broad spectrum of entertainment to audiences that encompasses both commercial and specialty fare,” Focus said. “As audiences’ consumption habits continue to evolve, the need for the targeted branding of entertainment content and the cultivating of a loyal fanbase becomes imperative. This branding is important not only during the theatrical windows, but also across ancillary and digital distribution platforms.”

Focus said it isn’t adding staff as a result of reviving Gramercy Pictures. Its slate include sci-fier “Self/Less,” starring Ryan Reynolds and opening July 10; “Sinister 2,” opening Aug. »

Blade Runner 2: Cinematographer Roger Deakins Will Shoot the Sci-Fi Sequel

20 May 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Good news, everyone! When it was announced that Denis Villeneuve would be directing Blade Runner 2, my first thought was, “Hey that’s pretty cool!" And my second thought was, “Wait, does this mean Roger Deakins is going to shoot a Blade Runner movie?!” Indeed. Alcon Entertainment announced today that the 12-time Oscar nominated cinematographer will be reuniting with Villeneuve on the project, marking their third collaboration after Prisoners and the upcoming Sicario. Deakins is quite possibly the best director of photography who’s ever lived, so the prospect of him capturing the world of Blade Runner is beyond enticing. A frequent collaborator of the Coen Brothers, Deakins has shined in a variety of genres from Western (True Grit) to comedy (The Big Lebowski) to James Bond (Skyfall). While he did shoot 2011’s In Time and 1984’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, we haven’t seen much from Deakins in the realm of sci-fi, »

With Rob Zombie's upcoming film 31 taking place in a setting known as "Murder World", you can expect to find plenty of malevolent monsters (of the human variety) around every corner, but not every character is evil at heart.

Zombie's 31 was recently acquired for North American distribution by Alchemy. No release date has been revealed at this time, but stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates on Zombie's latest film.
