Fan Made: Movie Posters as Public Service Announcements

30 December 2008 11:02 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

We tend to feature a lot of movie poster photoshopping contests on Cinematical because a) they're tons of fun, and b) they promote creativity and imagination. This latest one is close to being one of my favorites -- over at SomethingAwful.com, as part of their Photoshop Phriday, they asked folks to create public service announcements out of movie posters (or, as they say, "rehabilitated them to be educational, informative, and inspirational"). So, for example, the classic Jaws movie poster suddenly turns into an advertisement to join the Amity Island High Swim Team, and The Spirit poster featuring Sarah Paulson turns into a PSA against germs. One of my personal favorites, although a tad fuzzy, takes the famous Fight Club poster and transforms it into a PSA for fighting infections. Some very funny and unique creations to be found, for sure.

Check out the ones mentioned above and a couple »

The 9 best from 1999

30 December 2008 3:37 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Since we’re about to plunge headfirst into the cool waters of 2009, we thought it apt to set the wayback machine to 1999 and look at some of the gems from that vintage cinematic period. It was the year of The Matrix. The year that American History X brutalized us all and we talked a lot about Fight Club (sorry, Tyler). It’s tough to pick just none films, but here are some of our favourites, along with reviews from the mag, in date order… A Bug’s Life Compared to some of Pixar’s future successes, it now... .

2 Inspirational Weight Loss Movies...

29 December 2008 1:43 AM, PST | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

If you're anything like totalfilm.com, you ate waaaay too much this Christmas. And just in case Fincher ever decides to make Fight Club 2, we probably need to get back into shape as soon as possible. The films below should help. Shallow Hal (2001) Okay, so the message of Shallow Hal is all about inner beauty. But let’s face it, wouldn’t you rather look like Gwyneth Paltrow without the fat suit? Hell, even Paltrow herself didn’t want to look like a fatty, preferring to spend hours and hours in make-up to eating the... .

Interview: Taraji P. Henson of ???The Curious Case of Benjamin Button??? on Playing Brad Pitt???s Mother

24 December 2008 11:11 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago ??? It turns out that skipping a ???blowout??? garage sale she was planning paid off for up-and-coming actress Taraji P. Henson after all, she told HollywoodChicago.com???s Adam Fendelman in a Chicago interview. Not being there netted an even grander sale for her acting career: Henson was cast as Brad Pitt???s surrogate mother in the Oscar-buzzing film ???The Curious Case of Benjamin Button???.

???The Curious Case of Benjamin Button??? star Taraji P. Henson in Chicago on Dec. 5, 2008.

Photo credit: Adam Fendelman, HollywoodChicago.com

Rating: 4.0/5.0 The film, which was adapted for the screen by Eric Roth and is based on the 1920s short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, stars Brad Pitt opposite Cate Blanchett with Taraji P. Henson and Tilda Swinton. It???s a curious film indeed about Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) who ages backward. He???s born old and grows youthful.

For Henson, auditioning for the part of Queenie (Benjamin Button? »

Watch Russell Crowe in the 'State of Play' Trailer

24 December 2008 12:07 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Once upon a time, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton were connected to a movie called State of Play. Long story short, they're not anymore. In their places are Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck, which doesn't have the same sizzle as re-teaming the principals from Fight Club.

But hope is not lost, because State of Play still has a good cast, when you factor in Helen Mirren and Rachel McAdams, and you recall that Affleck was actually really good in Hollywoodland a couple of years ago.

The film is about a politician embroiled in the case of his murdered mistress, and is based on a BBC mini-series from 2003. Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) is directing, and the script is a joint effort from Matthew Michael Carnahan and Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton), which is certainly not shabby.

If memory serves, this film was initially on the 2008 release calendar, »

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" - a third review. Will pack a big emotional punch on audiences.

24 December 2008 11:31 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Reviewby Mike Digiorgio, Writer             The new movie starring Brad Pitt faces some big competition at the box office on a very busy Christmas Day (Tom Cruise’s Valkyrie, Frank Miller’s The Spirit, his ex-wife’s Marley & Me), and while it’s hard to say how this 2 hour and 45 minute movie will do on its opening weekend, it’s probably safe to say it will age better than any of those others.             David Fincher’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – the story of a man who ages backward – is easily one of the best movies of the year.  It is Forrest Gump-like in its scope, and like Forrest Gump, it is full of all kinds of sentimental moments and scenes that make you ponder the meaning of the world and your place in it.  Actually, there are all kinds of Forrest comparisons to be found. »

30 Best Title Opening Title Sequences -- Credit for Credits

20 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Opening credits aren't mandatory. Some films forego them altogether and get straight to the action. Sometimes they're a little delayed by an introduction. But if they do hit, some directors choose to land a wake-up call to the brain by designing unforgettable title sequences. Yes, they're a collection of names but they're also a great way of setting the tone of a film. I can't imagine "Fight Club" without it's brain-map open or "North by Northwest's" beautiful transition from intersecting lines to the side of a skyscraper, reflecting the outside world. The folks at Smashing Magazine have collected what they believe to be the Top 30 of all time and what I like most about the list is that it contains films not made in the last twenty-five years. Seriously, next time you read any list of movie qualities (all of which are link-bait in »

As Rev Theory continues to rock the stage in cities across North America they are shedding light on the red hot video for “Light It Up.” The second single off their Interscope Records debut, Light It Up, again showcases the bands adeptness to arena rock anthems.

The “Frying Pan,” a run down Manhattan ship, plays the backdrop to an underground fight club that would rival anything seen in Brad Pitt’s epic film Fight Club. The video for “Light It Up” [...] »

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" review. The Once and Future Brad Pitt Shines

17 December 2008 6:10 AM, PST | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

The future Brad Pitt, a feeble and wrinkled old man, features in the first half of the epic romance "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." Without his rebel good looks, thick blonde hair and fit body we’ve come to love and admire, Pitt relies upon his charisma and the one thing his handsome features often makes us forget; his deep talents as an actor. "Benjamin Button" is plush, colorful moviemaking, rich in detail and thoroughly clever. While it’s a masterwork for director David Fincher (He worked with Pitt before on the cop thriller “Seven” and “Fight Club”), revealing a sentimental side never seen in his previous films, it’s more a testament to Pitt’s talents. »

First Official Sherlock Holmes Photos

14 December 2008 5:56 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warner Brothers has just released the first official photos from their upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie. Still no photos of Robert Downy Jr. chomping on a pipe or working a magnifying glass, but there is one shot of Sherlock Holmes joining Fight Club. Sherlock Holmes meets Tyler Durden? Now that's a movie I'd be interested in. While I'm still not sure if I like Downey's look as Holmes, there's a great shot of Jude Law of Watson... and they've gotten him just right. The guy really knows how to work a bushy mustache. See both new photos below, and expect Holmes in theaters waay off on November 20th of 2009. »

Old School, Dodgeball: Unrated, Super Troopers and Hot Rod -- Dellamorte reviews some modern comedies that have just been released on Blu-ray

13 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lots of stuff is being put out on Blu-ray for the consumer who wants to upgrade, and so there’s piles of re-issues. 2003’s Old School helped re-launch Vince Vaughn and set up Will Ferrell as a cinematic comic star. It still holds up. It’s one of the better attempts to unite a couple of different comic voices, and so you’ve got a bunch of people who bring their own kind of funny, and just a really strong supporting cast with Jeremy Piven, Craig Kilborn, Seann William Scott, Artie Lange, Matt Walsh, and Juliette Lewis bringing some funny. You’ve also got some hot milf-y types with Leah Rhemi, Ellen Pompeo, and Perrey Reeves, and younger women like Elisha Cuthbert. You’ve got nudity and Will Ferrell dancing. Borrowing its structure from both Animal House and Fight Club, it holds together well enough, though there’s weird elements »

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

11 December 2008 12:59 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Casting Director: Laray Mayfield Director: David Fincher Writer: Eric Roth Starring: Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Taraji P. Henson, Elle Fanning, Tilda Swinton, Julia Ormond The Pitch: In a film adapted from an F. Scott Fitzgerald story, Benjamin (Pitt) leads an unusual life, born at age 80 in post-World War I New Orleans and aging backward into the 21st century.The Curious Case of Benjamin Button could have been a casting director's dream — or nightmare. Starring Brad Pitt as a man aging backward, David Fincher's sixth feature is a sprawling fable with an equally sprawling cast. Fortunately, Laray Mayfield, who cast the filmmaker's Se7en, Fight Club, Panic Room, and Zodiac, relished the challenge. Fincher brought her the project three or four years before it went into production, without any star names attached — although, Mayfield says, the director always had Pitt in mind to play the title role: "David has a very »

10 December 2008 8:36 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Tyler Durden, Neo, Andy Dufresne, Keyser Soze, Vincent Vega, and William Wallace. What do they all have in common? They're all incredibly memorable movie characters, yes, and in their own ways, they're all bad-asses.

But they're also pivotal points in movie history all sandwiched in the 1990s. Gunaxin has compiled a list of classic films from that decade that just so happens to be geared at guys: The Top Fifty Guy Movies of the 1990s.

Reading it, I was surprised how many good entries there really were that decade, and that's before you consider a lot of movies aren't made for guys.

Here's the top ten, but check out Gunaxin's list and see what you think of their ratings:

 1 - Fight Club

 2 - The Matrix

 3 - Pulp Fiction

 4 - The Shawshank Redemption

 5 - The Usual Suspects

Jolie-Pitt Family Love New Orleans

8 December 2008 10:50 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Angelina Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt want to settle down in New Orleans, Louisiana - because the city's racial diversity echoes their own family's mixed heritages.

The Hollywood couple have six children: adopted Maddox, seven, from Cambodia, Pax, four, from Vietnam, and Zahara, three, from Ethiopia. They're also parents to biological offspring Shiloh, two, and baby twins Knox and Vivienne.

And while the children love the southern U.S. city for its culinary delights, Jolie insists they're actually learning about various cultures by living in New Orleans.

She says, "Our kids love it here. They love the school and their friends here. Most of all they love Verti Marte (a diner in the French Quarter). Their favourite thing to do is go down there. But for all of us, we just come here and we feel at home.

"This is the place we feel combines all the culture we love. It's a melding of my French heritage with Brad's Americana. The kids just love the food at the moment but they're absorbing years of tradition through that."

Fight Club star Pitt has been working with his charity Make It Right to rebuild the city after 2005's Hurricane Katrina left thousands of people homeless when flood water washed away massive swathes of residential areas. »

Review: The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button -- Matt marvels at the beauty of Fincher's latest

3 December 2008 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is epic in the best sense of the word. It's not about set pieces—it's about scale. It's not about distance—it's about depth. Director David Fincher has crafted an epic love poem, a tale of life and death, a story about storytelling. He does it all and does it without soaring trumpets, grand declarations, or even the in-your-face style of "Fight Club". He does it with character, with pacing, with gorgeous cinematography, and with all the quiet strength and confidence of a much older and experienced artist. The hook of "Benjamin Button" is that the title character (Brad Pitt) was "born under unusual circumstances." Specifically, Benjamin is born as a man in his mid-80s and then ages in reverse. Abandoned by his father on the doorstep of an old-folks home, Benjamin is found by the kind-hearted »
