The Last Sci-Fi Blog: How 1998's 'Lost in Space' Was Weirdly Ahead of Its Time

27 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

When I sat down to revisit the 1998 film Lost in Space, it was a lark. Drinks were poured. Joe Tribbiani jokes were prepared. Wills were strengthened. The guy who brought the Blu-ray insisted that it wasn't nearly as bad as we remembered. 130 minutes later, my suspicions were confirmed: he was wrong. Stephen Hopkins' adaptation of the campy '60s television series of the same name is just as bad today as it was 17 years ago, when it become noteworthy for about three seconds when it was the first film to knock James Cameron's Titanic off its months-long box office perch. Today, that remains the only interesting piece of trivia about this debacle, which quickly vanished from the public consciousness. It didn't even have the decency to be a memorably bad movie...

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Leonardo DiCaprio

26 February 2015 10:39 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Who would have thought it? Leonardo DiCaprio, the handsome Lothario from Titanic with boy-ish good looks and an infinite well of charisma at his disposal, would go on to become of the best and most accomplished actors of his generation – and one of the most popular. Yes, Leo was once pegged as an actor defined entirely by his good looks, and yet – over the course of the past decade – he’s managed to shatter perceptions and crush opinion.

Apart from being an award-winning actor, dater of super models and millionaire philanthropist of the highest order, DiCaprio has also managed to earn a reputation for being one of the nicest guys in Hollywood – a humble chap who goes out of his way to ensure that everybody’s having a ruddy good time. No, he hasn’t won an Oscar (aren’t those memes hilarious?), but it’s surely just a matter of time. »

10 Things You Need To Know About James Cameron’s Spider-Man

25 February 2015 9:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony clearly have no idea what they’re doing with Spider-Man. Sam Raimi’s trilogy of films started off strong, before dropping off a quality cliff into a terrible movie ravine with the final instalment. So precipitous was the descent, they decided to just junk the whole thing and start again with The Amazing Spider-Man reboot, which has already disenfranchised fans within two movies.

They considered starting again, bringing back Sam Raimi, and even pushing forward with an animated film from the makers of The Lego Movie. In the end they’ve gone ahead and thrown in with Marvel Studios, who will co-produce the next Amazing Spider-Man film – although, apparently, with a new cast and director. So they’re basically starting again.

If that seems like a bunch of bad ideas strung together, however, just know that it could’ve been worse. So much worse. In the early nineties Marvel weren’t doing so well, »

Tom Rothman’s Top Priorities at Sony: Cut Costs, Make Peace

25 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony Pictures Entertainment endured a corporate tsunami last winter on the scale that few Hollywood players have ever faced, after its inner workings were laid bare by hackers.

By picking Tom Rothman, 60, an exec who approaches business and life with hurricane-force intensity, to run the studio, Sony’s leadership is unleashing another round of disruption in Culver City.

The surprise appointment by Spe chief executive Michael Lynton is intended to forsake the status quo, rein in costs and create more movie franchises to compete with rival studios. Rothman’s elevation is also expected to roil Sony’s executive suite and on-lot producers, and could potentially strain relations with some top talent.

The safe bet in the days leading up to Rothman’s ascension was that Sony would tap Doug Belgrad, the well-liked motion picture group president, to succeed ousted studio chief Amy Pascal. But Rothman’s prior experience co-running Fox Filmed Entertainment, »

Here's The Most Insane Titanic Theory Anyone's Ever Thought Up

24 February 2015 5:34 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What if Jack Dawson was really some guy from the future, sent back in time to keep Rose from killing herself? And what if his efforts drastically altered the course of Titanic's fate? One Titanic fan came up with a pretty clever theory about the truth behind Leonardo's wandering character. On the surface, there's no evidence that suggests Titanic's lead character is actually a time traveler. But looking at a theory by Matt (last name hidden) on Facebook, and shared on K. Tempest Tumbles tumblr page, it certainly does throw a fun sci-fi spin on James Cameron's historical fiction. It begins as follows: Jack from Titanic was a time traveler that was only there to save Rose from Committing suicide and altering the timeline. This may seem ridiculous but think about it for a moment... if Rose jumped to her demise then the ship would have stopped »

This 'Titanic' Fan Theory Could Change the Way You Watch the Movie Forever

24 February 2015 1:01 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

What if Titanic isn’t an epic love story set against the backdrop of a maritime tragedy? What if Titanic is actually an epic...sci-fi movie?! That’s what one fan theory making its way around the World Wide Web proposes.

The theory started with someone named Matt on Facebook before going viral on Tumblr. Here’s the gist of it “Jack from Titanic was a time traveler that was only there to save Rose from committing suicide and altering the timeline.”

Watch: This deleted scene from ‘Titanic’ contains a terribly cheesy pun

The scene he’s referring to is when Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) finds Rose (Kate Winslet), hanging off the back of the boat, ready to throw herself into the ocean, and manages to talk her off the ledge.

Tom Rothman Will Replace Amy Pascal at Sony

Deadline is reporting that TriStar's Tim Rothman will become the new head of Sony Pictures, taking the place of former studio chief Amy Pascal, who left her post earlier this month after the fallout from the Sony hacks (though it wasn't just that). Rothman is known for his long career leading 20th Century Fox — a studio tenure that produced James Cameron's blockbuster hits Avatar and Titanic — though he's also notoriously hands-on when it comes to comic-book films, a genre that has only grown in importance over the last decade. Best of luck, Spider-Man franchise! »

Sorry, God: You’re No. 6 on the list of individuals historically thanked in Oscars acceptance speeches — apparently you just can’t complete with the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Steven Spielberg, among other Hollywood heavy-hitters. Spielberg is the most-thanked person ever during Academy Award podium time — the “Saving Private Ryan” director has been acknowledged a whopping 42 times, according to a study by Vocativ. Weinstein — who produced “Shakespeare in Love” — is the runner-up, scoring 34 of his own “Thank Yous.” In third place historically is “Titanic” director James Cameron, with 28 thanks. “Star Wars” visionary George Lucas is fourth with 23, »

We've already given you our Oscar predictions, and now we're bringing you a few of the best (and craziest) Academy Awards facts. From the first Best Actor winner to the "one dollar" Oscar rule, here are 25 things you (probably) don't know about the Oscars.

'Grand Budapest' advantage at Oscars? History of Best Production Design and Best Picture

19 February 2015 8:55 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The Academy Award for Best Production Design can be a tricky one to predict, as it oftentimes doesn't correspond with the leading contender for Best Picture. In order to correctly predict it, let's turn first to the Art Directors Guild Awards: since 1996, the Adg has rewarded the eventual Oscar winner a total of 11 times. -Break- Oscars predictions: Experts predict 'Grand Budapest Hotel' will win Costume Design A little bit of background: from 1996 to 1999, the Adg gave out only one award for Feature Film. From 2000-2005, they gave out two prizes: one for Period or Fantasy Film, the other for Contemporary. Beginning in 2006, the award for Period or Fantasy was split in two, thus creating a total of three categories in which films could compete. In addition, starting in 2007, the award went solely to the production designer: 1996: Stuart Craig, et al, "The English Patient" 1997: Peter Lamont, et al, "Titanic" 1999: Rick. »

Best Cinematography is one of the most closely watched technical categories at the Oscars, due largely to the fact that it’s often so difficult to predict.

9 soundtracks that outshone their movies: Tron Legacy, Twilight and more

12 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

These days no movie can get away without a tie-in soundtrack. The latest is Fifty Shades of Grey, which brings together everyone from Beyoncé, Sia and Ellie Goulding.

However, there's always a danger that the album can outshine the movie it originates from. Digital Spy highlights 9 instances where this is the case.

1. Tron: Legacy (2010)

Disney's belated sequel to its cult '80s hit Tron unfortunately forgot to bother with anything approaching a coherent story or believable characters - but what a display of visuals and sound. Daft Punk took care of the latter, crafting a score that fizzed with electronic pulses ripped straight from The Grid.

2. The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009)

Despite being so critically derided, the Twilight movies were consistently able to churn out impressive soundtracks. The best of them was 2009's New Moon, which collected new songs from Thom Yorke, Death Cab for Cutie, Lykke Li, The Killers, »

Non-American Born Best Director Oscar Winners

11 February 2015 7:24 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With the DGA Award in hand, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has become a frontrunner in the best director Oscar race for Birdman.

Only seven winners of the DGA Award have not won the best director Oscar in the 66 years that the Directors Guild of America has given the award. The most recent case was two years ago, when Ben Affleck wasn’t even nominated for the best director Oscar for Argo, which won best picture.

No American has won for best director since 2011 and if Inarritu, who is from Mexico, takes the Oscar this year, the trend will continue. Inarritu could become the second Latin American director to win for best director, following Alfonso Cuaron’s win last year.

In the 86 years since the Academy Awards’ inception, 89 Oscars have been given for best director. Twenty-six awards (29 percent) went to non-American born directors.

At the first annual »
