Andy Serkis Almost Said No to Gollum in Lord of the Rings

13 October 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Andy Serkis has become a true force in Hollywood. Not only is he a fine actor, having appeared in movies like The Prestige and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he is a pioneer in performance capture technology, which has changed Hollywood in recent years. Much of that started with his work on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy that begins with Fellowship of the Ring, in which he portrayed Gollum. However, it turns out that he almost turned down the role.

The 53-year-old actor is now trying his hand at directing, with his feature debut Breathe hitting theaters very soon and is already positioned as an Oscar hopeful. While promoting the movie, Andy Serkis spoke with The Guardian and, while talking about his experience on Lord of the Rings, he revealed that he initially wasn't interested in the role. That is, until he realized the full potential in what Peter Jackson was doing. »

Fellowship Of The Ring: nerdy facts about a classic film

4 October 2017 6:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Den Of Geek Oct 5, 2017

A trip to the Cannes Film Festival was the moment the Lord Of The Rings team realised their life was about to change...

As we charted in this article here, the earlier films of director Peter Jackson didn’t offer too many clues that he was the man to both bring J R R Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings trilogy to the big screen, and also that he’d made such a raging success of it. From his fun, shlocky early work though was a man learning his craft, one that he continued to hone with the underappreciated and hugely-fun comedy horror The Frighteners, and the rightly Oscar-nominated Heavenly Creatures.

Jackson, though, had his eyes on Tolkien’s trilogy from his early days, but realising Middle Earth on the big screen had long been seen as a formidable challenge. Ralph Bakshi’s 1978 animated movie »

Visual Effects Society: The Top 70 VFX Films of All Time Include ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Blade Runner,’ and ‘Citizen Kane’

12 September 2017 2:32 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In honor of its 20th anniversary, the Visual Effects Society polled its membership to list the 70 most influential VFX films of all time. James Cameron led the pack with six entries (“The Abyss,” “Aliens,” “Avatar,” “Terminator,” “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” and “Titanic”); Steven Spielberg followed close behind with five (“Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” “E.T. the Extraterrestrial,” “Jaws,” “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and “Jurassic Park”); and Peter Jackson had four Oscar winners (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and “King Kong”).

“The Ves 70 represents films that have had a significant, lasting impact on the practice and appreciation of visual effects as an integral element of cinematic expression and storytelling,” said Ves board chair Mike Chambers. “We see this as an important opportunity for our members, leading visual effects practitioners worldwide, to pay homage to our heritage and help shape the future of the global visual effects community.

Top Ten Movie Franchises Based on Books

16 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For as long as there have been movies, there have been movies based on books. This is a look at the best movie franchises that are either based on a book or several books.

It’s one thing to have a movie that is based on a book. It happens all the time. It’s more rare to have an entire franchise of films based on a book or set of books. Over the last two decades, it seems like we have been seeing more and more franchises emerge that are based on books. This seems to be happening for a few reasons. First, Hollywood is more than ever looking for established properties on which to base films. Book, have been and always will be one of the best established properties for a movie to be based upon. Second, if the books have a big following, chances are that the »

‘The Dark Tower’: Clashing Visions, Brutal Test Screenings Plagued Journey to Big Screen

1 August 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With millions of loyal readers and a fantastical setting, Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” book series has tantalized Hollywood. The movie business is always on the prowl for the next “Lord of the Rings” or “Harry Potter.” King’s novels, about a mysterious gunslinger on a quest to save the universe, had the markings of a potential blockbuster.

However, getting the promising adaptation to the big screen took more than a decade and suffered several setbacks along the way, as one top director and screenwriter after another — including J.J. Abrams, who originally optioned the material — tried and failed to wrest the author’s eight-book opus into a workable film. After Universal Pictures scrapped plans to make a series of interconnected films and television shows with Ron Howard running point, Modi Wiczyk, co-founder of Media Rights Capital, set the project up under a co-financing deal with Sony Pictures.

In 2015, MRC and Sony jointly announced they had found »

‘Lord of the Rings’ Spoke to 1960s College Kids — and to United Artists

28 July 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Happy birthday, Frodo. J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” debuted July 29, 1954; the next two books were published separately in the next 15 months. Tolkien’s popularity in the U.S. climbed significantly in 1965, when Ballantine printed a revised paperback edition.

When United Artists acquired film rights to “Rings” in 1969, Variety explained that the books’ success was fueled by students, adding that the trilogy “preceded marijuana and LSD in making the younger generation flip.” For years, “Rings” continued to fascinate but frustrate filmmakers. Among those who flirted with film adaptations were Walt Disney, John Boorman and the Beatles; Ralph Bakshi did a 1978 animated version. But a live-action version went nowhere until 1998, when Peter Jackson made a successful pitch to New Line’s Bob Shaye.

On Aug. 31, 1998, Variety announced that New Line would commit $130 million to perhaps the biggest gamble in the history of movies: Jackson would make three films simultaneously. If »

Warner Bros, Tolkien estate settle five-year legal battle

3 July 2017 10:36 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The dispute between film studio and estate of the fantasy author ends ‘amicably’.

Warner Bros has settled its five-year legal battle with the estate of The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit author J.R.R. Tolkien and his publisher.

The breakthrough came in a legal filing in Los Angeles on Friday (June 30) that both sides said was amicable and stemmed from an $80m lawsuit brought by the estate and publisher HarperCollins in 2012.

The plaintiffs alleged the studio, subsidiary New Line and rights holder Saul Zaentz Co. overstepped their authority and were in breach of copyright and contract.

At issue was the claim that an agreement going back several decades entitled the defendants to create merchandise based on The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings books, but not certain exploitations that came to include online games.

Warner Bros., Tolkien Estate Settle Massive ‘Lord of the Rings’ Lawsuit

3 July 2017 7:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. and the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien have resolved a rights dispute over “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings,” the two parties said in a court filing.

The settlement ends a legal scuffle that has pitted the film studio and the author’s heirs against one another since 2012. The conflict stemmed from the digital exploitation of the hobbits, wizards, elves, and other fantastical characters from the hit films in online slot machines and other games. The Tolkien estate and publisher HarperCollins alleged that the studio never had rights to license characters for these purposes. Warner Bros. countersued, claiming that the estate cost it “millions of dollars in license fees” from merchandising when it filed a legal challenge.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but a legal filing said the two parties had resolved their »

Video: 5 Best Sword-Fights in Movies

23 June 2017 10:04 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

Sword fights. Everyone loves a good sword fight. They combine the best thing about chess – the strategy and fitness of a well-timed and executed move – with the ferocity of a wrestling match. Plus, they’re normally really well scored. They’re like a dance off with more equipment and less impressive footwork. With that in mind, we thought that it’s important to take a couple of minutes to go through five of the best sword fights in movies.

5. Aragorn Vs The Nine Ringwraiths – The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

While the Hobbit films were somewhat “less than stellar” there’s no doubt that Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films were, on the whole, quite good. The Fellowship of the Ring especially. There were a lot of things in that film that worked really well – Saruman’s new orcs, the Balrog, the secret council, but the thing that really sold the film was the battle between Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) and the Ringwraiths. It may have been short, but it set the tone for the film and it ends with an evil ghost getting a flaming torch to the face. What more does a film need than that?

4. Captain Jack Sparrow Vs Captain Hector Barbosa – Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

Geoffrey Rush, playing the role of Hector Barbosa, described this fight as an epic battle between two immortals and is it ever. The choreography is pure Flynn-like. It’s over the top and quicker than a ship at full mast. Intercut with this scene is another sword fight: Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) versus the undead crew of the Black Pearl. Plus, bringing back what we said about being really well scored, Hans Zimmer is on point with the theme for both this fight and the entire scene. The series may have gone off the map in later films, but The Curse of the Black Pearl really was treasure.

3. Hector Vs Achilles – Troy (2004)

Okay, so this one is definitely a controversial choice. Classics Students hate this film because it’s not the Illiad; Lord of the Rings fans hate it because Legolas (Orlando Bloom) is a coward in it; and cinema-philes hate it because… Well, its quality is debatable. But, 2004’s Troy is notable because: every single actor seems to be chewing the scenery in every single scene and it has Eric Bana and Brad Pitt fighting with spears. Taking place the day after Hector (Bana) killed Patroclus – Achilles’ cousin-in-this-version-but-lover/protege-in-the-Illiad, it features some of the best choreography in a film that’s pretty much built upon its sword-to-sword choreography and the bankability of Brad Pitt. The fact that most of the fight is actually one that’s between two spear wielders – something which is rare in the medium, for some reason – only makes the whole thing even better. Plus, Pitt’s Achilles really lays on the smack talk. Hard.

2. The Bride Vs The Crazy 88 – Kill Bill, Vol. 1 (2003)

As the titular Bill (David Carradine) says in Kill Bill Vol. 2, Uma Thurman’s character wasn’t really fighting eighty-eight bodyguards during this fight. According to the Kill Bill Wiki, there are only forty-four of them. Still, that’s a considerable number of bodyguards for one woman to fight by herself and  Thurman does it stylishly. She’s called the world’s deadliest woman throughout the film, but it’s this scene in which the thesis is tested. It’s one of the most stylish scenes Quentin Tarantino ever shot and we’d argue still holds up compared to his later work. There’s so much to say about this fight but we’ll just let the fact that the Bride fought forty-four bodyguards (as well as two bosses) and won speak for itself.

1. Luke Skywalker Vs Darth Vader – Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)

There were a lot of options that we could have gone with for our ultimate battle of the blades. Hell, there were a lot of options we could have gone with from the Star Wars franchise. But, after going through all seven films again, we’ve decided that the top of them all has to be what was – for a long time – the final battle in the Star Wars trilogy. While not as technically flashy or quick as some of the fights from the prequel trilogy, the fight between Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Darth Vader (David Prowse/James Earl Jones) more than makes up for it in terms of both emotional impact, thematic appropriateness, and score. And wow, what a score it is. John Williams is known for his scores but we think this just takes the cake.

Are there any sword-fights you think we missed? Let us know in the comments below. »

Ian McKellen Says It’s ‘Un-American’ for Trump Not to Protect Gay Rights

22 June 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

During an interview at the Variety Studio in Cannes Lions, the actor Ian McKellen had harsh words for President Donald Trump if he fails to follow through — as seems to be the case — on a campaign promise to protect the rights of the Lgbt community.

Asked about the administration’s attempts to roll back gay and transgender protections, McKellen said, “If what you’re saying is true, it’s appalling and quite unnecessary and very un-American. The gay rights movement began in America. It began in San Francisco, it began in Stonewall, the city where Donald Trump was born and thrived.”

The White House has refused to acknowledge June as Pride Month. In March, Trump quietly rolled back an Obama-era rule, Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces Executive Order. Many argue that the move leaves female and Lgbt employees of federal contractors venerable to discrimination.

McKellen, the most recent openly gay actor to be nominated for an Oscar, admitted he’s not sure what Trump believes. “I can’t follow Mr. Trump,” McKellen said. “I don’t always understand what he says and when I do, I have to admit later that I got it wrong because he changed his mind or changed his mind about what he said. He’s a very bad communicator, at least to me. Get more straightforward, Donald. And then we can take you seriously.”

McKellen arrived at the annual advertising conference in the South of France with an initiative, co-sponsored by the European branding company the Brooklyn Brothers and TV production house Brown Eyed Boy, to solicit short films that re-imagine iconic characters as gay (winners will be broadcast on Facebook).

The actor known for playing Magneto in the “X-Men” franchise spoke about the lack of gay characters in major Hollywood tentpoles. “I wouldn’t say the films coming out of the mainstream are quite as related to what’s going on in the real world as I would like them to be,” McKellen told Variety. “One indication of that is Lgbt people don’t really get quite a big enough say. If you’re one of those initials yourself, you do notice that actually these movies are not about me at all.”

Hollywood has yet to greenlight a comic-book movie anchored by a gay superhero. “Frankly looking at the images of some of these superheroes it’s a surprise to me they aren’t gay,” joked McKellen.

He expressed disappointment that his costume for Magneto isn’t quite as flamboyant as it was in the comics. “I wasn’t allowed to wear that outfit,” McKellen said. “I don’t look like Magneto in the comics — always shot from the crotch level.”

McKellen had a suggestion for rebooting the James Bond franchise with a gay 007. “I do have an idea,” McKellen said. “I think Ian Fleming, who wrote the original books, knew all about [it]. I’m not sure subsequent actors have quite understood the joke, which is the same as Superman. James Bond is a wimp! He’s a silly Englishman that wants his martinis stirred. He changes his underwear, like Superman, and he can save the world. They all play it the same — he’s heroic all the way through. No, he’s not.”

“If you play James Bond as an outwardly camp, silly gay man that no one took seriously and then he turned out as many gay men are underneath their clothes — buff and strong and as hetero as any hetero — we might have a more truthful story than the one that has been told,” McKellen said.

Would he want to play this new Bond? “I’m not volunteering,” he said. “I’m insisting. No, I’m too old to play it. I can be on the periphery of this new version.”

With all the recent talk of diversity at the Oscars, one statistic still goes unnoticed. There hasn’t been an openly gay actor nominated for an Oscar in 15 years — since McKellen was recognized for his work in “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” as the wizard Gandalf.

“It’s hard isn’t it?” McKellen said. “It’s probably because there are few remaining very talented actors who aren’t quite out of the closet in the way one would like for them to be for their own health and good. I don’t think there’s anything sinister about it. I was only the second openly gay man to receive a knighthood. Records are being broken day by day.”

Patrick Stewart and our Top 5 Celebrity Memes to celebrate The Emoji MoviePatrick Stewart and our Top 5 Celebrity Memes to celebrate The Emoji MovieTanner Zipchen6/15/2017 10:02:00 Am

The Emoji Movie brings the digital language of "emojis" to life. The film features an impressive cast lending their voices to these fun little symbols, including James Corden as Hi-5, Sofia Vergara as the Flamenco Dancer, and the legendary Sir Patrick Stewart playing none other than… Poop.

Now as ridiculous as that sounds, we know that Sir Patrick Stewart is cool enough to take on a role of this calibrer, and in fact, he's played quite a part in the digital world already. Of course I’m referring to the classic Sir Patrick Stew meme that I’m sure you’ve seen at least a few times floating around on social media:

The Godfather voted top Don

10 June 2017 8:04 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

There was only one vote that really mattered this week, namely which movie really is the greatest of all time? That was the tough choice facing readers of Empire magazine, who sought to publish a list of the top 100 films in their June edition. After a mammoth count-up it was none other than the 1972 classic The Godfather which came out on top.

The cult flick’s unique blend of historical Sicily, horses’ heads and Mafia violence saw it beat many a crowd favourite to the top spot, including its sequel, The Godfather: Part II, which finished in twelfth place.

Making up the rest of the top ten (in this order) were The Empire Strikes Back, The Dark Knight, The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas, Raider Of The Lost Ark, Jaws, Star Wars and The Fellowship Of The Ring. Quite why Sex Lives of the Potato Men didn’t make the cut is anyone’s guess. »

Cannes at 70: The Five Key Years That Changed the Festival Forever

16 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Every Cannes Film Festival is important, but only a handful of the editions have been game-changers. As the festival celebrates its 70th birthday, here are five events that altered the DNA of Cannes, shaping the fest into the global powerhouse that it is today.

The First Festival, 1946

French minister for education and fine arts Jean Zay wanted an international event for France to rival the Venice Film Festival, which had begun in 1932. Several French cities wanted to host; Cannes was selected over Biarritz because it had better hotels. Variety reported in June 1939 that a Cannes festival was planned for September, under the presidency of Louis Lumiere; however, WWII put a freeze on any European festivities.

Cannes finally debuted in September 1946. Variety arranged for coverage, including a special report from Margaret Herrick, the executive secretary of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Herrick marveled at the speed of travel: It »
