CinemaCon: Barco Woos Theater Owners with Panoramic 'Escape,' Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga

21 April 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The enhancement installation costs about $200,000 for projectors, screens and special servers, says Barco CinemaVangelist Ted Schilowitz, who gave me an advance peek at Cinequest in February. But Barco is working with exhibitors to bring down the cost for them, in an effort to see the format deployed in as many theaters as possible. Jumping on board the Barco train is event-movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer ("Armageddon"), who has joined Barco's board and is partnering with them to develop projects for the format, which will allow filmmakers "to expand the creative vision of our films,” Bruckheimer says. The Hollywood studios and theater owners are more invested than ever in turning multi-plexes into "event" destinations for Big Movies, as they believe that's the best way to lure customers out of their homes and away from their mobile phones. Young men, especially, are proving to be a fickle demo, distracted by video games, online video. »

Con Air: the 90s action film that remains unmatched

7 April 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Here's our tribute to one of the best action movies ever made: a story of Nicolas Cage, a plane and a toy bunny...

"Break out the fine china, chill the lemonade, tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree. Cos this boy's coming home to his ladies. Coming home forever."

Action cinema changed in 1999. The release of The Matrix unleashed a torrent of imitators, but also altered fundamentally the editing of movies in the genre. This came with a price. Action sequences became harder to follow. Character was relegated. The old style idea of pitting a movie star against some peril in extraordinary circumstances was seemingly less tempting. The Matrix had started something.

Well, that, or everyone just watched Con Air, and figured they couldn't top it. Because in truth, how could they? One of the most quotable, enjoyable and wildly entertaining blockbusters of the 1990s, I can't think »

5 March 2015 11:40 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though many know Owen Wilson for his more comedic roles in films like Wedding Crashers, earlier in his career he took on a variety of films from Behind Enemy Lines to The Haunting, and two of his earliest films were Armageddon and Anaconda. Now Wilson is getting back into action thriller territory with No Escape (formerly known as The Coup), the story of a man who finds himself and his family threatened in the middle of a political uprising just after moving to Southeast Asia. Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell also star in the film which looks pretty intense, and might open some new doors for Wilson in other genres again. Watch!

As Gold Derby predicted, "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas," a faith-based comedy about the true meaning of the holiday, was the big "winner" at the Razzie Awards, winning four of its six nominations: Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Kirk Cameron), Worst Screenplay, and Worst Screen Combo (Cameron and his ego). -Break- For the complete list of winners, click here. Megan Fox and Will Arnett on working with 'Ninja Turtles' (Exclusive Video) "Christmas" only lost two races, including Best Director, which went instead to Michael Bay for "Transformers: Age of Extinction."

Diane Warren One of Two Songwriters With (at least) Seven Oscar Noms, Zero Wins

5 February 2015 7:05 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Songwriter Diane Warren earned her seventh Oscar nomination this year for “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights. The song, which will be performed by Rita Ora at the Oscar ceremony, is Warren’s first nomination in 13 years. With a Grammy and a Golden Globe under her belt, she has yet to win an Oscar and is one of two Oscar-nominated songwriters to have at least seven nominations and not a single win. The other songwriter is Mack David.

Warren received her first nomination in 1988 for the song “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now,” which she co-wrote with Albert Hammond, from the movie Mannequin. The song was a No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 Hit in 1987.

She next landed four consecutive nominations nine years later starting with 1997’s nomination of “Because You Loved Me” from Up, Close & Personal. Though the song didn’t win an Oscar, it did score a Grammy. »

SXSW Announces Their Features Lineup; Includes Feig/McCarthy's 'Spy' and Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

3 February 2015 1:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in TrainwreckPhoto: Universal Pictures With Sundance just wrapping up and Berlin starting up in a few days, we are now immersed in the year-long barrage of film festivals. One such festival in South By Southwest. A few weeks back they announced the first seven films of their program, including the opening night film Brand: A Second Coming. Today, they have revealed the rest of the features to be shown in March (except for the midnight program), and some of it has me very excited. The bigger titles announced do not do much for me. Paul Feig's Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy, and the Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart starrer Get Hard leave a lot to be desired in terms of anticipation, as does a work in progress cut of Judd Apatow's latest film Trainwreck. I'm guessing an Apatow work in progress is probably around three and a half hours. »

The Top 7 Super Bowl Halftime Moments

30 January 2015 2:35 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From Janet's wardrobe malfunction to Prince's risque pantomime, the Super Bowl halftime show has featured moments that are sometimes more memorable than the game itself. On a massive worldwide stage, audiences have seen everything from a Destiny's Child reunion to a show-stopping performance from the King of Pop.

News: 6 Secrets Katy Perry Revealed About Her Super Bowl Halftime Show

Here's a look at some of the Super Bowl's best halftime moments:

7. Bruno Mars Brings the Funk

The halftime show is using more about spectacle than musicianship, and while Bruno Mars certainly had plenty of flash, he and his terrific dancing band also brought some serious chops to their halftime performance at Super Bowl Xlviii in 2014. The feel-good performance got the crowd (and audience at home) on their feet and a cameo from the Red Hot Chili Peppers only sweetened the deal (even if their guitars were unplugged).

The mystery behind USA Network’s upcoming drama “Dig” keeps getting deeper and more intense.

Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, the network released its 15-second spot for the series with a screaming child and a group of religious figures huddled in a dark tunnel.

“You have seen things you are not supposed to see,” a weary voice warns in the video.

Watch: 'Saturday Night Live' Sketch 'Fanatic' Written & Directed By Paul Thomas Anderson And Starring Ben Affleck

22 January 2015 10:55 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fifteen years ago, what would you have imagined the future held for Paul Thomas Anderson? What about Ben Affleck?   In 2000, Affleck was coming off of “Dogma,” “Shakespeare in Love” and “Armageddon.” Sure, he’d already won an Oscar (along with Matt Damon) for writing “Good Will Hunting.” But he was yet to make his feature directorial debut, which would come seven years later with “Gone Baby Gone.” The notion of “Argo” wouldn’t yet be viable, nor would the thought of casting him as Batman. Similarly, P.T.A.’s career was just revving up. He had made “Magnolia,” “Boogie Nights” and “Hard Eight,” but “Punch Drunk Love,” “There Will Be Blood,” and this year’s Best Adapted Screenplay nominee (and our pick for 10th Best Film of the Year) “Inherent Vice” were all yet to be conceived.  So consider this a Throwback Thursday of epic proportions —behold the Paul Thomas Anderson written/directed, »

Few No. 1 Billboard Hits Win Big at the Oscars

22 January 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

From the 79 original songs on the Oscar shortlist, five were nominated a week ago on Jan. 15: “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, “Glory” from Selma, “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me and “Lost Stars” from Begin Again.

Following a recent trend, none of the nominees have made it to the top of the BIllboard Hot 100 chart, which tracks the success of  singles by looking at radio play, online streaming and sales.

Following the announcement of the nominations, “Glory” made its debut at No. 25 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart dated Jan. 31 and is currently No. 92 on the Billboard Hot 100.

When “Everything Was Awesome” debuted in January 2014, the song debuted at No. 7 on the Dance/Electronic Songs chart and peaked at No. 57 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

Gale Anne Hurd Honored with David O. Selznick Achievement Award

21 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After more than three decades working in film and television, producer Gale Anne Hurd says the basic tenet of her success has always been about preparing for every possible outcome on a project.

“Then you’re not stuck having to solve things when there’s truly no time to get it wrong,” says Hurd, who will receive the 2015 David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Motion Pictures at the Jan. 24 Producers Guild of America Awards ceremony.

“Going back to (1984’s) ‘The Terminator,’ I would have dreams about possible production problems, so I would have a list of plan B, plan C, plan D. Because everything that can go wrong will go wrong.”

Hurd started in the business as Roger Corman’s executive assistant at New World Pictures, eventually working her way up to head of marketing.“The Terminator,” which she also co-wrote, was the turning point, launching Hurd’s career as a producer. »

Watch: Michael Bay Reveals The "Secret Sauce" Of 'Age Of Extinction' Action Scenes In 11-Minute Video

14 January 2015 7:19 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He may be the most mocked auteur in film history, but Michael Bay is second only to Steven Spielberg as the highest-grossing director of all time. For all his offensiveness to a very vocal group of “serious” moviegoers, Bay is still king of the multiplex. Why? The answer may lie in a featurette from the “Transformers: Age of Extinction” Blu-ray. Tilted “Bay on Action," the Blu-ray bonus feature sees the much-maligned director break down his style —he loves to start wide and then cut in close to focus on small moments within set pieces— and explains how he nailed down some of the sequences in the film. For all his faults, it can’t be said that Bay doesn’t care immensely about the action in his films and that attention to detail is probably what draws someone like Christopher Nolan to Bay’s work. His level of craft is »
