Tom Sizemore Launches Crowdfunding Campaign For Detroit-Set Thriller He’ll Star In & Produce

1 hour ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Tom Sizemore has taken to crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to raise funds for his passion project An Honest Crime, a noir-ish thriller that the Heat and Saving Private Ryan actor is putting together as a starring vehicle. It’s his first film as a producer and a step toward rebuilding his up-and-down career following a public relapse in January, but Sizemore says he has refocused his sights on sobriety and is optimistic. “I want to get back,” he said over the phone Wednesday. “I want to make something I look forward to.”

An Honest Crime is written by the actor’s younger brother Aaron Sizemore and tracks three outcasts who plot to steal a prized baseball card collection from a local pawnbroker. Belgian helmer Giorgio Serafini (Gente Di Mare) is attached to direct the pic, which is set in Sizemore’s hometown of Detroit and will film on location. Sizemore will play Danny St. »

Drea de Matteo on Sons of Anarchy, Missing Adriana, and Why She’d Do Joey Again

16 September 2014 8:25 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Drea de Matteo is a little sad. She’s finally become a regular cast member on Sons of Anarchy as Wendy, Jax’s ex-junkie baby mama, and the show is riding off the air at the end of its current seventh season. “Now that I’m in there, I want to keep going!” de Matteo says. At least she’s getting lots of juicy scenes as she helps Jax (Charlie Hunnam) raise their son, Abel, as well as Thomas, his infant boy with now-dead old lady Tara (Maggie Siff). The Queens, New York, native talked to Vulture about Wendy’s life expectancy, The Sopranos’ still-controversial finale, and why she’s “too much of a whore for network TV!”Wendy busted herself out of rehab after 9 of 90 days. Is it possible she’s cleaned up her act or will this turn out to be a bad decision?Well, I don’t know. »

Examining 'American Beauty' at 15: A masterpiece, or a farce?

15 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Fifteen years ago this week, Sam Mendes’ film American Beauty arrived in U.S. theaters. In Florida, a film critic named Jay Boyar reviewed Mendes’ first full-length feature for the Orlando Sentinel—and he wrote that after seeing it, he “decided that the little satirical film would come and go without much fuss.”

However: “In the weeks since I saw the film, it has opened in a few places to ridiculously generous reviews,” Boyar mused. “Entertainment Weekly called it ‘bracing in its intensity’ and the New York Times praised its ‘eloquent flights of fancy.’ I’m sorry to say that »

"No Good Deed" Tops Weekend Box-Office

14 September 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whenever a major tentpole film dominates the box-office for several weeks, it's usually an unexpected and over performing smaller film aiming at a very different market that knocks the weakening giant off its perch.

It happened again this weekend as the Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson-led, black female audience-targeted thriller "No Good Deed" kicked Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" out of the top slot. 'Deed', costing just $13 million to make, nearly doubled its production budget with a $24.5 million haul over three days.

Family film "Dolphin Tale 2" came in second with $16.6 million, behind the $19.2 million opening of the original back in 2011 though that film had a 3D bump. The news wasn't all bad for 'Guardians' either as it became the first film of 2014 to cross the $300 million mark at the domestic box-office. It came in third with $8 million, and worldwide it also passed the $600 million mark this weekend. »

Box Office: ‘No Good Deed’ Tops ‘Dolphin Tale 2′ With $24.5 Million

14 September 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

No Good Deed” topped the box office this weekend and helped reinvigorate a floundering domestic movie business.

The Sony/Screen Gems thriller took in $24.5 million from 2,175 theaters, easily beating expectations. Going into the weekend, analysts expected the home invasion thriller to hover around $20 million. Females made up the bulk of the audience, taking up 60% of the seats in theaters, and 41% of ticket-buyers were under 30 years old.

“It’s not a full reversal of the weakness at the box office, but it’s a step in the right direction,” said Phil Contrino, vice president and chief analyst at BoxOffice.com. “It’s good to see new films enter the marketplace and do all right.”

No Good Deed’s” success is a feather in the cap of stars Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, both of whom actively hawked the film on social media.

“They absolutely elevated it,” said Rory Bruer, Sony Pictures’ president of worldwide distribution. »

Michael Ealy To Star In ‘A Civil Right’ For Revolution Media

12 September 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Golden Globe-nominated Michael Ealy (Think Like A Man Too, Sleeper Cell) will star as civil rights activist Dr. Gilbert Mason in biopic A Civil Right, the first feature from Michael Benaroya and Darryl Taja’s new Revolution Media shingle.

Mason’s activism landed him at #3 on the FBI’s civil rights agitators most-watched list, and he went on to successfully fight for school desegregation in the state and help form the Council of Federated Organizations (Cofo). He served as President of the Mississippi NAACP for three decades before his death in 2006.

Inside the Writers’ Room: Post #11: How to Change the World (And, Most Importantly, Why) – Part II

10 September 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hope for Film | See recent Hope for Film news »

American TV is written for the most part by (white) men. The same applies to American movies, as well as European movies and European TV. Is it then a surprise that male characters outnumber females at least 3 to 1, even though females comprise over 50% of the population? Even more staggering is the fact that this ratio remains the same since 1946! According to Stacy Smith of the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, 80.5% of all working characters are male and 19.5% are female – in contrast, of course, to real world statistics, where women comprise 50% of the workforce.

What is rather surprising is the realization that although there are some local differences the percentage of women writers and women directors of narrative features is about the same everywhere in the Western world. Consider these figures in connection with the percentage of films with women as protagonists, which is a mere 16 percent: obviously, there is »

20 Sons of Anarchy Episodes to Watch Before the End

9 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

When Sons of Anarchy debuted in 2008, a show about a California biker gang certainly seemed like a provocative choice, but no one, perhaps not even showrunner Kurt Sutter (already known for his work on The Shield), could have expected it would become one of FX's most highly rated series. To mark the seventh and final season of Soa, which premieres tonight, here are 20 episodes you should watch (it's streaming on Netflix) to get up to speed before the series ends in a few months. Naturally, spoilers lie ahead.1. Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”In this episode, Jax (Charlie Hunnam) is sent by his mother Gemma (Katey Sagal) to a storage unit to pull out baby clothes and toys for his son’s impending birth (to his drug-addled ex-wife Wendy, played by The Sopranos' Drea de Matteo).

Boardwalk Empire season 5 episode 1 review: Golden Days For Boys And Girls

9 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The return to Boardwalk Empire sees Nucky looking back while others look to the future. Here's Michael's review...

This review contains spoilers

5.1 Golden Days for Boys and Girls

The last season of Boardwalk Empire, the one we now know to be its penultimate, was probably its strongest. A superb show from the outset, the season nevertheless saw a firm confidence in its characters and its storytelling that allowed it to handle multiple themes and chart several destinies with subtle skill. While a joy to observe, it meant that the disappointment in finding out that the fifth season would be the last was felt more severely than it perhaps would have been a couple of years ago. To a significant extent, Boardwalk Empire had only just got going.

With a firm hand at the tiller, it could easily have seen out the 1920s over three or four additional seasons. Following Prohibition »

The Drop review: Tom Hardy is exhilarating - Toronto Film Festival 2014

8 September 2014 2:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Michaël R. Roskam; Screenwriter: Dennis Lehane; Starring: James Gandolfini, Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace; Running time: 106 mins; Certificate: R

The Drop holds the distinction of being the late James Gandolfini's final film, a dark, moody drama in which The Sopranos star returned to his often-visited world of mobsters and seedy characters. Here, though, his character Marv is an interesting final role - a would-be gangster who never made it out of the world of petty crime, and now oversees drops at a Brooklyn bar that he used to own. Chechen mobsters have taken over the bar, which is one of many that serves as a place where dirty money can safely be held until those higher up the chain can retrieve it.

As Marv, Gandolfini is like a shadow of the tough Tony Soprano, a sad and desperate man who only gets more desperate after the bar is robbed »

Boardwalk Empire Season 5 Premiere Recap: Past Imperfect

7 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Boardwalk Empire is a show that’s always been haunted by the past. The show itself is a glitzy, gritty time capsule, a vision of early-20th-century, American excess and corruption crystallized in amber – or, considering the show’s love for all things alcoholic, amber ale – filled with characters plagued by ghosts and demons they’re unable to shake off.But the show is also haunted by the landmark HBO shows — specifically, The Sopranos, Deadwood, and The Wire — that came before it. Just like those forever-worshipped programs, Boardwalk shared a love for novelistic storytelling and complex, morally ambiguous characters. Unfortunately, as much as creator (and former Sopranos writer) Terence Winter wanted to land a spot on the HBO-showrunner Mount Rushmore alongside the three Davids — Chase, Milch, and Simon – by helming a show that was equally worthy, a pristine, prestige drama both Mark Wahlberg and Martin Scorsese would be proud to »

Entertainment Geekly: 'Boardwalk Empire' as TV history

5 September 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Boardwalk Empire begins in 1920. Its lead character, Nucky Thompson, is on top of the world. History is bending in his direction. He has established an elaborate criminal conspiracy that will funnel an addictive drug (alcohol) directly into the mouths of its consumers (most of America), all of it untaxed. What could go wrong?

Boardwalk Empire began in 2010. Its network, HBO, was on top of the world. It was coming off a decade which you could, with only a bit of hyperbole, referred to as the HBO decade. The Sopranos redefined what television could be; so did Sex and the City, »

David Chase readdresses his comments on Tony Soprano's fate

4 September 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Last week, fans went through interchanging cycles of rage and relief when Sopranos creator David Chase seemed to have told Vox that Tony Soprano was alive at the end of the series. But Chase’s representative later issued a statement: Tony was not alive, nor was he dead. “As David Chase has said numerous times on the record, ‘Whether Tony Soprano is alive or dead is not the point.’ To continue to search for this answer is fruitless. The final scene of The Sopranos raises a spiritual question that has no right or wrong answer.”
