Ed Harris’ ‘Westworld’ Turn Was A Perfect Late-Career Move For One of Our Best Actors — Career Watch

5 June 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Ed Harris, who’s doing what he’s always done: owning character roles in film, theater and television.

Bottom Line: Harris has an iconic masculine American gravitas. The camera loves him and you can count on Harris to deliver a character’s emotional spine with subtle and sturdy grace. That’s why this hard-working actor never falls out of demand. And he seemingly can do anything, whether stalwart hero (John Glenn in “The Right Stuff” or the Mission Control voice in “Apollo 13” or “Gravity”) or contemptible villain (see “The Firm,” “Enemy at the Gates,” “Swing Shift,” or “The Rock”).

Director Peter Weir (“The Truman Show,” “The Way Back”) once told me that shooting Harris is “spiritual, a man that has a past and regrets, »

Brigsby Bear review – The Truman Show meets Room in overly whimsical comedy

25 May 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A children’s TV show produced for an audience of one – a kidnap victim – pushes the narrative plausibility, but that won’t stop it becoming a festival hit

Inevitably evoking comparisons with Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Room, The Truman Show, Dogtooth and Bad Boy Bubby (but not as funny, sincere, resonant, original or weird, respectively, as any of the above), whimsical comedy Brigsby Bear revolves around a young man named James (Kyle Mooney) who has been raised in a desert bunker by Ted and April (Mark Hamill and Jane Adams) ever since they kidnapped him when he was a baby. Ted and April tell him that the air outside is toxic, breathable only through a gas mask, but they can all survive so long as James keeps topping up the bicycle-powered electric generator and doing his maths homework. Sort of like a Steiner school but without the organic food and self-righteousness. »

Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes Adaptation Set To Premiere This August

11 May 2017 3:18 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Yet another Stephen King novel is set to get the TV treatment. While folks may be more dead set on seeing some of Stephen King’s older work — like It, The Dark Tower, Firestarter, or The Mist — on the big and small screen, we can’t forget that the dude’s been writing pretty great novels in recent years as well. Most recently, King’s put out a trilogy of hard-boiled detective novels. The stories started with Mr. Mercedes, continued with Finder Keepers, and concluded with End of Watch.

We’ve known for some time that the first book would be adapted for the small screen, but after being announced, back-burnered, and then brought back to the fold, it became easy to lose track over what the actual status of the project was. Now, Audience Network has announced that the 10-episode limited series has a premiere date of Wednesday, August »

Watch David Spade Be Serious in “Warning Shot” Trailer with James Earl Jones

8 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ve always been a huge fan of when actors and comedians known for only playing funny parts take on serious roles.   There’s just something fascinating about these guys trying something that’s completely foreign.  And for the most part, I’ve enjoyed seeing funny guys be serious.  Adam Sandler was great in Punch Drunk Love and Funny People.   Steve Martin was awesome in ShopgirlRobin Williams was amazing in every single serious role he ever played.  Jim Carrey in The Truman Show.   Even Will Ferrell killed it in Stranger Than Fiction.  The list goes on and on.   The latest comedian taking

‘The Circle’: 5 Reasons Why Tom Hanks and Emma Watson’s Movie Bombed

1 May 2017 3:38 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Nobody sets out to make a bad movie. So why did cautionary tech thriller “The Circle” — adapted by lauded writer-director James Ponsoldt (“The Spectacular Now,” “The End of the Tour”) and beloved novelist Dave Eggers from his own 2013 bestseller — earn such negative reviews (43 on Metacritic, 17 on Rotten Tomatoes) and bomb at the box office ($9.3 million in 3,163 theaters)?

The movie went wrong in five significant ways.

1. The movie was foreign financed.

The Circle” was developed by A-list ex-DreamWorks producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald’s Parkes+MacDonald Image Nation, which raised financing from Imagenation Abu Dhabi Fz and foreign sales company FilmNation on the power of Tom Hanks, who was the first star on board via his Playtone banner.

In order to raise an $18-million budget, globally bankable star Emma Watson was cast in a central leading role that demanded she be in every scene. Veering in tone from satiric comedy to naturalistic drama, »

Tribeca Film Review: Tom Hanks and Emma Watson in ‘The Circle’

26 April 2017 11:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Circle” is a swankly sinister little mind teaser of a thriller. It’s a nightmare vision of what digital culture is turning all of us into, with all of our help. The movie, adapted from Dave Eggers’ 2013 novel and directed by James Ponsoldt (“The End of the Tour”), is about a corporation called The Circle that stores massive amounts of data — financial, medical, social, personal — about each of the account holders who belong to it. The company, based in the Bay Area, knows everything there is to know about you — but it’s all for your own convenience! You could call “The Circle” a dystopian thriller, yet it’s not the usual boilerplate sci-fi about grimly abstract oppressors lording it over everyone else. The movie is smarter and creepier than that; it’s a cautionary tale for the age of social-media witch hunts and compulsive oversharing. The fascist digital »

Exclusive Interview – Owen Michael Johnson and John Pearson discuss Beast Wagon

5 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With their critically acclaimed series wrapping up with latest issue, “Finale”, Beast Wagon creators Owen Michael Johnson and John Pearson discuss their unique vision and inspirations…

Like a stampede running rampant in a public zoo, the arrival of Beast Wagon two years ago took comic fans with surprise – and it’s one they won’t soon forget.  Surreal, demented, peppered with dark humour and layered with social commentary, Changeling Studios’ bonkers odyssey is not only original, but it’s reflective of the troubling times we’ve faced in recent years – as well as the possible dark period ahead.  An effective piece art, Beast Wagon taps into collective fears, anxieties and frustrations felt in the current socio-political climate, while, at the same time, manages to lure us into a world unlike anything else.  Bold, thought provoking and wholly original, it’s a must have for any serious comic aficionados collection.  Recently, »

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

6 February 2017 3:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »
