It’s that time of the year again, as Sony is spotlighting several anticipated new digital titles as part of their annual Spring Fever sale, which will run for a massive 8 weeks, which is double the length of the Spring Fever sale from last year.
Starting next week with the release of Helldivers, each week, until the end of April, Sony will be highlighting some of the more unique digital titles set for release over the next few weeks. These include the likes of Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Axiom Verge, Shovel Knight and more. PlayStation Plus members will even receive an additional 10% discount on each title during their respective launch weeks, so all the more reason to check them out.
In addition to the discounts offered on each new release, Sony will also be discounting several popular video game and film franchises each week during the Spring Fever sale. »

MGM’s big screen reboot of video game adaptation, Tomb Raider, has hit the headlines once more with news that Warner Bros. has joined the project. Now that the two studios are combining their efforts – WB will partner and distribute – could we be in for more of Lara Croft’s archaeological adventures sooner than we thought? According to Deadline that’s a strong possibility, as their sources indicate that “the reboot is on a fast track.”
Alongside this major development comes word that Evan Daugherty is now the latest in a long line of writers tasked with penning a script. His experience with big-screen blockbusters includes work on Snow White And The Huntsman, Divergent, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the upcoming G.I. Joe 3. This is the first we’ve heard on the screenplay side of things since Buffy showrunner Marti Noxon began work on a draft in 2013. Prior to her engagement, »

It’s an experience that the former Fox Filmed Entertainment chief is familiar with, because when he assumed leadership at that studio in 2000, it had yet to mount many of its biggest series and reboots, such as “X-Men” and “Planet of the Apes.”
His ability to replenish Fox’s blockbuster cupboard, as well as his ties to A-list talent such as Ang Lee, George Clooney and Jodie Foster, is a major reason he was selected to run Sony over such potential candidates as production chief Michael De Luca and motion picture group president Doug Belgrad, according to individuals with knowledge.
“Every studio needs franchises,” Rothman told Variety. “That was the case when we took over at Fox and that took time to build it up and it will take time here. »

Winners are now indicated. I correctly guessed only 9 out of the 24 categories.
Here’s an at-a-glance look at my picks for tonight’s Academy Awards — projected winners are Xed at the lefthand side. Keep in mind: those Xes don’t represent whom I think should win Oscars but whom I think will win, based on what little I can grasp about how the Academy thinks. (I’ve also noted which nominees I think should win. Kindly note that this is not necessarily my take on who did the best performance/writing/FX/whatever of the year, but whom I think is best among the nominees.)
I suspect I won’t be able to make it through the ceremony »

Birdman was honored with Best Picture at the 87th Annual Academy Awards, which took place tonight at the Dolby Theater in the Hollywood and Highland Center, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. Birdman took home four Oscars tonight in total, winning for Best Picture, Best Director (Alejandro González Iñárritu), Best Original Screenplay (Alejandro González Iñárritu, Armando Bo, Alexander Dinelaris, Nicolás Giacobone) and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki). The film also tied for the most wins of the night with The Grand Budapest Hotel, which won for Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Production Design and Best Original Score.
All eight of the Best Picture nominees walked home with at least one award. American Sniper won for Best Sound Editing (Alan Robert Murray and Bub Asman), Boyhood won for Best Supporting Actress (Patricia Arquette), The Imitation Game won for Best Adapted Screenplay (Graham Moore), Selma won »
The 2015 Oscars are in the books and it was Birdman taking home four awards including the coveted Best Picture along with a Best Director win for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu as well as an Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography (Emmanuel Lubezki) win. But Birdman wasn't the only film to take home four Oscars as The Grand Budapest Hotel had a small bit of domination in the below-the-line categories winning for Production Design, Costumes, Makeup & Hairstyling and Original Score (Alexandre Desplat). The only other multiple award winner was Whiplash, which took home Best Supporting Actor (J.K. Simmons), Best Film Editing and Sound Mixing. Otherwise, it was singles across the board and while there were a few interesting wins below the line, the top awards went pretty much by the books. Patricia Arquette took home Boyhood's only Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) won Best Actor over »

This week Neil Calloway is wary of Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film…
When Neill Blomkamp released some of the artwork for his proposed Alien film, I was impressed – concept art for science fiction films is often better than the films themselves – and mentally filed it in my “great unmade films” drawer. It sat there alongside the Gladiator sequel scripted by Nick Cave, in which Russell Crowe’s character is resurrected and fights in various battles throughout history, Return of the Jedi directed by David Lynch (he was offered it, and turned it down because he did not want to helm a science fiction film where he was not in control of the material; ironically his next film would be an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. I cannot imagine what Lynch’s version of Jabba’s Palace would look like) and the unmade Jurassic Park sequel that featured dinosaurs, obviously, »

Chicago – Oscar! Oscar! Oscar! Say it three times to win it, and you’ll win every Academy Award pool you enter – at least for the nine categories covered here – if you follow the advice of the HollywoodChicago.com “experts.” We have the Oscar magic, so if you believe in it, then we deliver.
Three film writers of HollywoodChicago.com – Patrick McDonald, Nick Allen and Spike Walters – will not only predict Sunday’s big night, but will suggest choreography to Neil Patrick Harris for his opening number. The crew will opine on Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor/Actress and Director. As in previous years, the prognostications are broken down into thoughts on who Will Win, Should Win and Should Have Been Nominated (for one last gasp of dissent). The predictors will also take on a wild card guess for several other categories, and the latest odds on the rest of »

The question on everybody.s mind is will it be .Boyhood. or .Birdman?. The Oscars this Sunday will be one of the most nail-biting Academy Awards in recent history. In the beginning of the awards season, Richard Linklater.s .Boyhood. was winning the best picture category in many of the award-giving bodies.
And then, the Producers Guild and Directors Guild Awards happened where Alejandro González Iñárritu.s .Birdman. took the top prizes.
So this Sunday, it.s all up in the air. But this is my Super Bowl and so I analyzed all the statistics which led me to my predictions below. Beware! I am not a fortune teller, only a movie buff. »

Danny Haley (Charlton Heston) calmly walks along the big city sidewalk towards an as of yet unknown destination as the opening credits role. His serious gaze surveys the surrounding area. Moments later the viewer discovers what might have been troubling him as a police convoy raids a nearby building, smashing an illegal betting operation in the process. Danny successfully found refuge across the street, but he and his partners in crime Barney (Ed Begley) and Augie (Jack Webb) are out for the count as far as making quick cash is concerned. Down and out, that is, until they make the acquaintance of army veteran Arthur Winant (Don DeFore) who looks to be loaded and ready to spend big bucks while in town. A fixed card game sees the unsuspecting Arthur hand over a sizable sum via check… »

Photo: AMPAS Polls Are Closed! See all the results right here! Well, it's time to lay it all out on the table and make our final predictions for the 2015 Oscars and I have to admit, this was a tough one to finalize as I feel I will be sweating a couple of these all night long come Sunday evening. The big question is whether or not it will be Birdman or Boyhood taking Best Picture and while last year it seemed we had a competition when it came to 12 Years a Slave and Gravity for the big prize, it didn't feel nearly as up in the air as it does this year. We also have the Best Actor category to think about when it comes down to the veteran in Michael Keaton (Birdman) and the newcomer in Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) and what to do about that Best »

The guilds, British Academy (BAFTA) and critics have all had their say. We're now four days from the 87th annual Academy Awards, so it's time to finally analyze the race for the wins. Most categories are fairly predictable, but there are some wildcards. While I expect "The Grand Budapest Hotel" to take more than its share of craft categories, with "American Sniper" and possibly "Birdman" doing well, too, it's fair to say we won't be seeing a year like last year, where "Gravity" took six of 10 categories, and "The Great Gatsby" took two more. More interesting is what I suspect will be a trend of repeat Oscar winners. I'm guessing the winners in most categories (Cinematography, Costume Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Visual Effects) will have already thanked the Academy before. While most of these winners would be deserving, several big names will still be waiting for their first statuettes. »

Take a sigh of relief, the Oscars are finally upon us. How many months will we squeeze out of 2015 before pundits start incessantly chattering about Awards Season again?
With any luck, 2016 will not be as contentious and as close of a race for Best Picture as it was this year. It has created a lot of excitement and confidence that the winner will be a strong one, but it has also created a lot of controversy and bile and disappointment.
My predictions for 2015 reflect the consensus of what will happen, not what should. But then with this year, anything can happen.
After almost near sweeps of critic prizes and the dominant film on Best of the Year lists by a wide margin, Boyhood may very well lose the Oscar for Best Picture on Sunday night. »
