Watch: Chilling New Trailer For David Fincher’s Murder Mystery ‘Gone Girl’ Starring Ben Affleck & Rosamund Pike

7 July 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

David Fincher’s done way too many grim crime thrillers centered around murder, right? There’s serial killer film “Se7en,” serial killer procedural “Zodiac,” serial killer mystery “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and "Panic Room" and "The Game" both have elements of murder, crime and mystery. But it’s not really by conscious design. "All you need to do is look at my filmography to know that I have no idea what people want," Fincher told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year admitting that he may have been "too beholden to the source material," vis a vis ‘Dragon Tattoo.' His latest film, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's murder mystery thriller, "Gone Girl," is well, another crime thriller with a secret in it. It's about a man (Ben Affleck) who becomes the focus of an intense media circus after his wife (Rosamund Pike) mysteriously disappears. Perhaps like the unapologetic and unrepentant Fincher himself, »

And to follow the first teaser poster, which didn't even use the title of the film or names of its stars, we have four new teaser posters hyping up the release of the new trailer tomorrow, each showcasing a piece of important evidence from the crime scene in question. Look below! Here's the teaser posters for David Fincher's Gone Girl from IndieWire, Awards Daily, HuffPo & HitFix: Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac, Panic Room, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, »

Required Reading: Making ‘City of God’ and Not Making ‘John Carter’ Sequels

10 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “How we made City of God” — The Guardian catches up with Alice Braga and assistant director Lamartine Ferreira to get an inside look at the creation of a devastating modern masterpiece. “This was only Meirelles’s second feature film, so City of God was a turning point for him, too. He knew what he wanted, but he was never too pushy. We couldn’t shoot at Cidade de Deus, the real City of God slum, though. It was too dangerous because it was in the middle of a drug war. Instead, we shot at Cidade Alta (Higher City), a similar-looking slum, using community members as security guards because they wouldn’t let us bring our own. I don’t remember feeling unsafe at any time. Sure, some »

My Fun Interview with Sam Claflin, Oliva Cooke, Jared Harris for .The Quiet Ones.

23 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

I enjoyed meeting the three stars from the upcoming film .The Quiet Ones. namely Sam Claflin (.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.), Olivia Cooke (.Bates Motel.), and Jared Harris (.Sherlock Holmes: The Game of Shadows,. .Pompeii,. .Lincoln.).

The film, bearing the mark of Hammer Films, talks about extracting demonic energy or negative energy according to Professor Joseph Coupland (Harris) and he wants to do exactly just that to Jane Harper (Cooke) who has been talking about a supernatural entity named Evey. Coupland hires videographer, Brian McNeil (Claflin) to document the experiment.

I sat down with the cast to talk about their interest in making the movie, working on the set, and the age-old argument between science and the supernatural.

.The Quiet Ones. from director John Pogue arrives in theaters on Friday, April 25.

Official Synopsis:

From the producer who brought you The Woman In Black and Let Me In comes the unnerving tale of The Quiet Ones. »

Review: Mindless And Harmless '13 Sins' Starring Mark Webber & Ron Perlman Fails To Thrill

18 April 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Real human beings take a certain kind of sadistic pleasure in watching fictional human beings suffer. As long as it's from a safe distance, and it's not affecting you or yours on any level, watching man turn into beast right before your very eyes could feel almost empowering. Just think about the most popular video games for a second, if all the violent movies aren't convincing enough. This type of barbarity gets upped a notch when you throw in the theme of voyeurism; not only are we watching how low some people will go, but now we're watching them being watched, controlled, and manipulated into doing some really nasty stuff. We've seen it on taut psychological display in David Fincher's “The Game,” James Wan's “Saw” begat an entire franchise on it, and more recently E.L. Katz's “Cheap Thrills” had all sorts of delirious fun with it during the festival circuit. »

Must Watch: Ben Affleck in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' Teaser Trailer

14 April 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The film tells the story of a woman (Rosamund Pike) who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, with all the evidence pointing to her husband Nick (Ben Affleck). And even though the film is based on the book, readers will have a surprise because Flynn wrote a new ending for the film. From the looks of this trailer, Fincher has another fantastic thriller on his hands, and we can't wait to see it. Watch! Here's the first trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of Gone Girl, in high def on Apple: And here's the stylish teaser poster that doesn't even include the title (via Digital Spy): Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, »

Your Top Three: Favorite "That Guy" Actors and Actresses

24 March 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Your Top Three is a series here at Movies.com where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. Last Friday, we lost one of the great modern "that guy" actors, James Rebhorn (The Game; Meet the Parents). I'd call him a character actor, but I don't consider him one. He wasn't the most distinct performer, neither odd in his looks nor his manner, but he played enough secondary or tertiary parts in enough movies to make him recognizable and, to the perceptive, a favorite supporting performer. Even if you didn't know his name.  "That guy" actors and actresses are great for trivia lovers and perhaps greater for documentarians. A couple years ago a movie came out called That Guy... Who Was in That Thing, which while not quite as...

The star, who appeared in the movies Scent of a Woman opposite Al Pacino and Independence Day as well as the TV series Homeland, passed away at his home on Friday afternoon (March 21). He was 65.

Rebhorn fought a 20-year battle with melanoma and took time out to write the obituary, titled 'His Life, According to Jim', which was published by Jersey City's St. Paul Lutheran Church on Monday (March 24).

He paid tribute to his mother and father, who "loved him very much and supported all his dreams", as well as praised his wife Rebecca and his two daughters.

The star also praised the actors' unions who represented him, his teachers and his agents, adding: "He was a lucky man in every way."

24 March 2014 5:57 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to The Wrap, Corey Stoll is in early talks to join the cast of Ant-Man. Unfortunately, there's currently no word on who the House of Cards star will be playing, so for now, we'll just have to speculate! Regardless, he's a great addition to an already impressive cast which includes Paul Rudd (Anchorman), Michael Douglas (The Game), and Evangeline Lilly (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug). Michael Pena (End of Watch) and Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) are also in talks. Ant-Man is set to be released on July 31st, 2015.    Congrats to @KrollJVar on breaking the Evangeline Lilly/Ant-man news. I'll admit, I was skeptical at first, but he was right. Props are due! — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) March 25, 2014 @krolljvar @Borys_Kit Oh yeah... Exclusive: Her deal closed.

James Rebhorn obituary

24 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Actor who played FBI agents, cops and traditional fathers

Anyone looking for an actor to play an unyielding martinet could hardly have done better over the last few decades than to cast James Rebhorn, who has died aged 65 after suffering from skin cancer. Poker-thin and poker-faced, this white-haired, crinkle-eyed performer excelled at bringing a glint of bureaucratic bloody-mindedness to small parts that might otherwise have slipped past unnoticed. He could be sympathetic too, even slightly buffoonish, as proved by his turn as the father of the gadabout Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) in The Talented Mr Ripley (1999), but he could also turn on a dime from charm to vindictiveness.

His speciality was playing officialdom in all its manifestations: cops, FBI agents, doctors, politicians. Asked in 2012 about his repeated appearances in legal dramas (he starred on television in Boston Legal, Law & Order, The Practice and The Good Wife, among others), he drew »

Prolific Character Actor James Rebhorn Dies At 65

24 March 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

James Rebhorn, one of the most prolific and recognizable American actors of the stage and screen, died on Friday at his New Jersey home. He was 65.

A familiar face for all film fans, Rebhorn spent many years honing his craft in the theatre before appearing in many of the biggest films and television series of the last 20 years. Although the actor was diagnosed with melanoma in 1992, he continued working heavily until last month, racking up 125 credits during 30 years in the business.

With a tall, gangly figure, Rebhorn often played characters with sleaze, power or a mix of both. He often portrayed politicians, police chiefs, strict fathers and lawyers, and never gave a dull performance. Among his most notable film roles are as Herbert Greenleaf in The Talented Mr. Ripley, secretary of defence Albert Nimziki in Independence Day and the mysterious Jim Feingold in The Game. Other film credits include parts in Meet the Parents, »

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere. There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya? “James Rebhorn: Remembering the Quintessential Character Actor” — Brian Lowry at Variety praises a hard-working That Guy who was everyone’s favorite pharmacist/teacher/principal/judge/dentist/doctor. The great thing about Rebhorn was that he did so many movies that he’ll continue to pop at random whenever we all dip into the past three decades of film. For me, he was best when tricking Michael Douglas into playing The Game. “Captain America’s Chris Evans on life as Marvel’s superhero go-to guy” — Marvel arguably has a lot of go-to guys now, but Jonathan Bernstein at The Guardian has a solid profile of an actor who enjoys taking the lead, but who’s happy to join ensembles where it isn’t all about him. “The »

R.I.P. James Rebhorn (1948 – 2014)

23 March 2014 8:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sad news to report today as character actor James Rebhorn has died at the age of 65.  Rebhorn was best known as a character actor who had roles in over 100 films and TV series including Independence Day, Scent of a Woman, The Game, and Meet the Parents.  He could always be counted on to play an arrogant, patriarchal figure, and a memorable one at that. Most cinephiles probably know his name, but if you went up to the average person today and told them that James Rebhorn had died, they would probably respond, “Who’s that?”  Personally, he was the first “Hey, it’s that guy!” actor whose name I wanted to know because I kept recognizing him in movies.  And I’m sure if you pointed out that Rebhorn was the sniveling advisor from Independence Day or the guy who kept saying “Jesus, Focker!” in Meet the Parents, an average person could recall the face. »

The Associated Press is reporting that James Rebhorn, the prolific character actor whose credits included “Homeland,” ”Scent of a Woman” and “My Cousin Vinny,” has sadly died. He was 65.

Rebhorn’s agent, Dianne Busch, said Sunday that the actor died Friday at his home in South Orange, N.J, after a long battle with skin cancer. Busch said Rebhorn was diagnosed with melanoma in 1992 but managed to work until the last month.

In five decades of television and film work, Rebhorn amassed more than 100 credits, ranging from a shipping magnate in “The Talented Mr. Ripley” to the prosecutor in the series finale of “Seinfeld,” in which he famously sent the group to jail.

The lanky but piercing Rebhorn, raised a Lutheran in Indiana, often played astringent authorities, like the headmaster in “Scent of a Woman” or the Secretary of Defense in “Independence Day.”

'Independence Day' Character Actor James Rebhorn Dies at Age 65

23 March 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While losing a lead actor like Philip Seymour Hoffman is always devastating, it's never easier when a fantastic supporting actor leaves this world. Therefore, we're disheartened to report that character actor James Rebhorn has passed away at age 65 after a battle with skin cancer, according to THR. Lately, Rebhorn had been seen most prominently on the small screen as Claire Danes' father on the Showtime drama series "Homeland," not to mention a recurring role on the USA series "White Collar." But Rebhorn also appeared on the big screen, and was easily one of the better known "Hey, it's that guy!" actors. Rebhorn has appeared in over 100 projects, including various episodes of television and feature films. The actor's more prominent roles on the big screen included Desperate Hours, Regarding Henry, Basic Instinct, Lorenzo's Oil, The Scent of a Woman, Guarding Tess, Independence Day, The Game, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Meet the Parents, »
