41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

17 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

11 best and worst movie mentors: Batman Begins, Fight Club, Clueless

18 January 2015 4:50 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The inspirational mentor is dead. On screen, that is. In recent years we've seen a drop-off in this once-beloved trope, with distinctly anti-heroic teachers, instructors and father figures coming to the forefront – see Ryan Gosling in Half Nelson, Steve Carell in Foxcatcher, Breaking Bad's Walter White, etc.

The latest example is Terence Fletcher, Jk Simmons's fearsome and sadistic jazz instructor who terrorises Miles Teller into greatness in this week's stunning Whiplash.

Below, Digital Spy picks out 11 more of the very best and very worst mentors in cinema history.

Best: Sean Maguire (Good Will Hunting)

It was a close run thing in this spot between "Carpe diem" and "It's not your fault", and in truth about half of Robin Williams's characters could qualify for this list.

But avuncular therapist Sean is everything you could wish for in a mentor, gently chipping away at Will's (Matt Damon) self-destructive defence »

Syfy Adapting Apocalyptic Drama Spin With Fight Club Scribe

16 January 2015 9:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ah, the apocalypse. Arguably one of the most fertile grounds for creativity across any medium, be it film, video games or television. Today, we’ve picked up news of another genre entry coming to the latter medium, after Syfy announced plans to adapt Robert Charles Wilson’s award-winning novel Spin into a miniseries.

With Jim Uhls already on board — screenwriter behind the likes of Jumper and Fight Club — the network is pushing ahead to bring the six-hour series to the small screen by the year’s end. In terms of the actual storyline, we understand that Spin centers around (no pun intended) a young scientist who is tasked with preventing impending doom after a mysterious, all-consuming cloud envelopes planet earth in its entirety and pushes humanity to the brink.

It’s the first book in Charles Wilson’s trilogy, a series that also includes Axis and Vortex, and though Syfy »

25 surprising side businesses from Hollywood stars

15 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Newman’s salad dressing enterprise is common knowledge, but did you know about these 25 businesses run by Hollywood stars?

What do big-time movie stars get up to in their spare time? While their fictional counterparts might enjoy chopping wood or getting hosed down by friendly females (more on that here), actors themselves have a tendency towards wacky entrepreneurial ideas and hefty industrial investments.

Looking at our findings from some rigorous research (read: Googling), it seems that you can divide famous actors into a handful of groups – those who are trying to do something good for the world, those who are trying to break into internet megabucks and those who like opening restaurants.

Without further chit-chat, here’s a breakdown of which stars are behind which brands which you may or may not know and love…

Community’s Yahoo Premiere Set

13 January 2015 9:50 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At the TCA press tour today, Yahoo announced the premiere date for its new, resurrected Community: March 17, when the show's sixth season will kick off with two new episodes. A new installment will arrive every Tuesday after that. The show's cast — including new arrival Paget Brewster — celebrated the news in a very charming promo that owes more than a little to Fight Club (it's the first pop-culture reference of the new season!). Now all Community fans need is a premiere date for that movie to be completely satisfied in life. »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer discuss ‘Run Lola Run’

10 January 2015 9:17 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a new feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their inaugural piece, they will discuss Tom Tykwer’s film, Run Lola Run (1999).

Landon’s Take

Amongst the many films included in 1999’s “year that changed movies,” Tom Tykwer’s Run Lola Run seems an essential text. Fifteen years ago, the film blew through national and arthouse borders, presenting an exhilarating image of an approach to filmmaking free from formal restraint or linear narrative logic. An engrossing exercise in style, Tykwer’s breakthrough film seemed to simultaneously beat Hollywood at its own game of fast-paced entertainment, integrate music video aesthetics harmoniously into the machinations of feature filmmaking, and present an art film thoroughly interested in film as an art form looking toward the 21st century, free from the modernist concerns that previously united festival-friendly European exports. »

10 Movies That Should Have Cult Followings By Now

10 January 2015 1:44 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount

Whether it was poor marketing or just not enough attention from the media, there are a lot of great films out there that went unnoticed during their box office runs. However, after only a few years these deserving films eventually find their audiences and earn the title of “cult classic,” thus achieving the appreciation that they deserve. Movie goers are familiar with this term, as well as several of the films that fall in this category, but there are in fact several great films that have not necessarily found their cult followings as of yet.

It typically takes a few years for a cult following to develop for certain films. Brian De Palma’s Scarface is considered a box office bomb and was panned by most critics around the time of its release, but a few decades have gone by and it’s now considered one of the best crime dramas of all time. »

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

10 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

We All Misunderstood Fight Club, Here's What Really Happened

I am Jack.s gonzo theory about true identities in David Fincher.s Fight Club. At least, that.s where we enter the conversation thanks to a seriously detailed breakdown of the existences of the characters in Fight Club that were posted to the Web site JackDurden.com. (Note: the site.s currently down, thanks to a Twitter referral by Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk. I.m not 100% certain that.s a vote of confidence in the theory, or just a playful link for fans of the material to, as he says, "have fun.") So what.s the main thrust of the argument? Obviously, stop reading this is you haven.t yet seen or read Fight Club, and still want to go into the story unspoiled. The site maps out all of the reasons why Helena Bonham Carter.s antagonistic love interest, Marla, is a figment of Jack.s (Edward »

Industry cinematographers weigh in on film vs. digital

2 January 2015 12:18 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The on-going film vs. digital debate seemed to reach a bit of a fever pitch in 2014. A lot of that had to do with the fight by filmmakers like Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan to maintain Kodak's production of film stock. It was a fight they won in August, while the industry at large would surely prefer to march headlong into the (more affordable) future of ones and zeroes. But this "debate" has remained a somewhat nuanced one, even as the separate passionate sides have presented it as cut and dried. Archivally, with the expanded shelf life of celluloid and in the face of file type obsolescence, maintaining the production of film stock is absolutely crucial. Aesthetically, it will always come down to preference, of course. But beyond even that, digital encroachment has meant more opportunity for young artists to break into the form, and that's the position »

Enemy review: Jake Gyllenhaal leads sullen thriller

2 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Denis Villeneuve; Screenwriters: Javier Gullón; Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Mélanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, Isabella Rossellini; Running time: 90 mins; Certificate: 15

Jake Gyllenhaal and Denis Villeneuve teamed up to good effect in the tense thriller Prisoners, but before that they made the arty character study Enemy. Based on José Saramago's novel The Double, it sees Gyllenhaal play a college professor whose life gets flipped when he spots his doppelgänger as a background extra in an old movie.

Disinterested in his work and even more so in his long-suffering girlfriend (Mélanie Laurent), Gyllenhaal's Adam pursues his lookalike and discovers he's an actor called Daniel Saint Claire (now known as Anthony). This outgoing, charismatic alter ego lies in sharp contrast to the meek, internal Adam. The two lives eventually intertwine amid tarantulas, matching scars and swapped identities.

It all feels like a dark, surreal twist on a Twilight Zone segment - a sort »
