It was the McDonald’s of video rental chains. The company that squashed countless local mom-and-pop video stores; its ubiquitous blue-and-yellow signs blanketing the country, cities and suburbs alike, with the promise of a largely efficient, largely impersonal, sometimes painless video rental experience.
By 2004, Blockbuster Video had 9,000 remarkably similar-looking locations. By every retail business standard, Blockbuster Video had won. Then, slowly, as The New York Times put it earlier today, “Internet killed the video store.” Blockbuster eventually adapted to changing technology and consumer habits, but not fast enough. There were struggles. Netflix. Policy changes. No late fees! Store closures. Late fees are back again! »

Following summer jobs at Adventureland in 2009, co-stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are reuniting for a new movie called American Ultra. Mixing 30 Minutes or Less and Enemy of the State, the film will follow Eisenberg as a lazy stoner named Mike, living with his girlfriend Phoebe in a small, unexciting town. But suddenly, there's something to get Mike moving as his past catches up with him and he finds himself targeted by a government operation for termination. Sounds pretty outlandish, but with a script from Chronicle writer Max Landis, we're actually pretty interested to see how this one plays out. In addition, THR reports Project X director Nima Nourizadeh will be directing. It's interesting that both the writer and director had breakout films using found footage as a narrative element, but there's no indication that this film will utilize the same technique. However, producer Anthony Bregman (who has Enough Said »

As Big Will prepares to blow out his birthday cake candles, Digital Spy wants to know what your favourite Smith movie is. Do you have a soft spot for his more dramatic work like Six Degrees of Separation, or are you more in sync with his high-octane summer films like Enemy of the State or I Am Legend.

The Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to renew their first-look deal when it expires next year. Disney will continue to focus on its branded properties including Disney, Pixar, Marvel and now Lucasfilm, while Bruckheimer is looking to produce more mature films outside the scope of the Disney brand. Disney and Bruckheimer will continue working together on various projects including the fifth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean.
Together Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer have produced such blockbuster hits as the Pirates of The Caribbean and National Treasure films under the Disney brand as well as adult action dramas like Pearl Harbor, Armageddon, Con Air, and The Rock through the Touchstone label.
Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn had this to say.
"Jerry is one of the most respected and prolific producers working in the motion picture industry, and we have had an incredibly successful collaboration over the »
After making millions, or rather billions, from blockbuster franchises The Pirates Of The Caribbean and National Treasure amongst others, The Walt Disney Company and powerhouse producer Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to re-team once their current first look deal ends next year. The two have apparently come to some sort of amicable divorce but you must wonder if the box-office failure of The Lone Ranger (a film I blooming loved by the way) has something to do with their decision.
Check out the official press release giving details and statements on the split.

For years I’ve been attempting to write a piece entitled ‘Why Jerry Bruckheimer needs to Ditch Disney’ but it’s never come off. I’m not entirely sure why I never managed to write anything on the subject but now news breaks that Disney and Bruckheimer Films will be parting ways at the end of 2014, it seems like the perfect time to write my reasons for why I think the main man Jerry needs to break free from The Mouse House.
Disney and Bruckheimer Films first got together back in the 1990s with movies including The Ref, Con Air, Armageddon, Enemy of the State, Gone in 60 Seconds, Coyote Ugly, Pearl Harbor, Bad Company, Veronica Guerin, King Arthur, Confessions of a Shopaholic and Déjà Vu which all fell under the Touchstone Pictures label which is owned by Disney. Because of the success of Touchstone, »

After several decades together, The Walt Disney Co and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are parting ways.
In an official statement from Disney, the studio has announced that it and Bruckheimer have decided not to renew their current deal which gives Disney first-look rights to the producer's films.
The pair will continue working together on various projects, including a fifth installment in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise due for release in 2016.
The statement suggests another "National Treasure" film might eventually be in the works, while Bruckheimer himself is: "looking to produce more mature films outside the scope of the Disney brand."
The deal, which began in the 1990s, has yielded over two dozen films including major hits like "Crimson Tide," "Dangerous Minds," "The Rock," "Con Air," "Gone in 60 Seconds," "Remember the Titans," "Armageddon," "Enemy of the State," "Pearl Harbor," "National Treasure," "Deja Vu," "G-Force" and the four "Pirates of the Caribbean" films. »

The Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to renew their first-look deal when it expires next year, ending a relationship that’s been one of Hollywood’s more successful partnerships since the 1990s.
The studio said it will continue to focus on its branded franchise films from the Disney, Pixar, Marvel and now Lucasfilm banners, while Bruckheimer is looking to produce a slate of “more mature” pics outside the scope of the Disney brand. Translation: there just wasn’t room for Bruckheimer in the Mouse House anymore.
Disney’s move to make films that are franchise friendly for not only the multiplex but also TV, theme parks and Disney’s consumer products division wound up giving Bruckheimer few options for more adult fare that he’s been developing for years. Those projects include an adaptation of Lorenzo Carcaterra’s 1997 novel “Apaches,” about renegade cops in New York »

Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney will soon discuss whether to continue a relationship that’s been in place since the 1990s or part ways.
The prolific producer will begin meeting with Disney studio chief Alan Horn next month over a new deal to replace a current first look pact that expires in spring 2014, Variety has learned.
Bruckheimer has several films in development at Disney, including a fifth “Pirates of the Caribbean,” that was recently pulled from the summer 2015 release schedule in order to improve the script, and a third “National Treasure,” among other projects. Bruckheimer also has a close relationship with Johnny Depp, with the two launching the “Pirates” franchise together, which has gone on to earn more than $5.4 billion worldwide for Disney.
Overall, Bruckheimer’s films have earned more than $3.4 billion for Disney domestically alone.
But Disney is a different studio these days from when it turned to Bruckheimer to »

Tony Scott‘s True Romance is probably one of my top ten all-time favorite movies, which is kind of weird since Badlands is one of my top five all-time favorite films. Or maybe it’s appropriate that this is the case. I’m sure that one of the reasons I fell in love with this movie is because of how directly it’s inspired by and references the earlier Terrence Malick film. Notice I make the distinction between movies and films. Scott made movies, Malick makes films. Scott also made a movie I like that directly references another of my all-time favorite films (Enemy of the State –> The Conversation). I was sad when Scott died particularly because I was hoping he’d eventually cover all my top shelf titles (just imagine what he could have done with Duck Soup!). Then again, maybe he’d have just redone himself, the way he did with Domino, which »

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away almost every director in Hollywood shot their films on 35 mm film. Now, the switchover from film to digital photography is almost complete, with even old school diehards like Martin Scorsese making the transition (this fall's "Wolf of Wall Street" will be his first non-3D digital movie). Oddly enough, J.J. Abrams, a futuristically-minded filmmaker who seems to always be looking forward, has become a notable holdout, refusing to adopt the new technology. Even odder is that this will continue with his biggest project yet: Disney's "Star Wars: Episode VII." He's also recruited an old favorite as the movie's cinematographer. According to The Force.net, at an industry event in Los Angeles, the announcement was made that the amazingly talented Dan Mindel will be photographing the new galactic adventure (on actual film!). Mindel, who memorably collaborated with Tony Scott on "Enemy of the State, »

Let there be lens flares! Earlier today it was announced at an event called "Asc Breakfast with Dan Mindel" that Mindel will be joining J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: Episode VII. Dan Mindel previously collaborated with Abrams on Mission: Impossible III as the director of photography and was the cinematographer for the last two Star Trek films. Mindel has also worked on other films such as John Carter, Enemy Of The State and G.I. Jane. It was also revealed at the event that »
