Dark Horse recently published The Fifth Beatle, a graphic novel account of Brian Epstein's life with The Beatles, written by the Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Vivek Tiwary with artwork by Andrew C. Robinson. A film deal was being talked about even before the book's November release, and that film is now officially underway, with Peyton Reed (The Break Up, Yes Man) just announced as director. Bruce Cohen (American Beauty, Silver Linings Playbook) is producing, along with Tiwary himself.Epstein was the guy who, against all odds, shepherded The Fab Four to global ultrastardom, getting them signed to classical/spoken-word label Parlophone when nobody else would take them, and wrangling them through the heights of Beatlemania. Yet for all the hoopla surrounding his public life, he remained a private individual, keeping his sexuality closeted, and struggling with gambling and drug addiction. He died of a barbiturate overdose in 1967, aged just »
Producers are touting “The Fifth Beatle” as the first-ever film about the Beatles to secure music rights to the Lennon/McCartney music catalog.
“From the moment I read Vivek’s graphic novel, I knew I wanted to be the person to bring Brian’s story to the bigscreen,” Reed said. “I’m a lifelong Beatles fan, obviously, but it’s Brian’s fascinating life that really blew me away and drew me to this project. He’s the ultimate outsider who, against all odds, »

“Enough Said  is a romantic comedy and the music is a much smaller instrumentation and the core of the music is piano, guitar, and a little percussion,” states Marcelo Zarvos (Brooklyn's Finest). “We had some orchestral pieces later in the film for some emotional moments that happen.” It was important for musical score not to be overpowering. “The dialogue is fantastic and you have amazing actors who are delivering those lines.” The Brazilian composer notes, “You’re laughing at the characters because they exist; that’s my favourite type of comedy to work on because I feel that the music doesn’t have to be pandering for laughs. It’s more accentuating and pointing out that this is a »
We've seen a new poster, we've seen three brief teasers offering up some first-look footage, we've seen a clear shot of the Green Goblin, and now with the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set to arrive on Thursday, we've got an updated synopsis for the Sony superhero sequel...
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.
It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the »

With the first trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 set to arrive on Thursday, Sony Pictures has given us a sneak peek by releasing three very brief teasers showing Andrew Garfield's wall-crawler in action; check them out below...
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, for Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), life is busy — between taking out the bad guys as Spider-Man and spending time with the person he loves, Gwen (Emma Stone), high school graduation can’t come quickly enough. Peter hasn’t forgotten about the promise he made to Gwen’s father to protect her by staying away — but that’s a promise he just can’t keep. Things will change for Peter when a new villain, Electro (Jamie Foxx), emerges, an old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, and Peter uncovers new clues about his past.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is set for release on April 18th 2014 in the »

The first time audiences really set their eyes on Paul Walker was in the 1998 dramedy “Pleasantville,” about two siblings (Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire) transported inside a 1950s sitcom. The world they encounter is a cookie-cutter, black-and-white suburb straight out of “The Donna Reed Show,” and Walker played the handsome high school love interest for Witherspoon. With his hair slicked back and Ken doll dimples, Walker, 24 at the time, brought to mind a young Tab Hunter. His character was meant to be a squeaky-clean boy next door, but he didn’t stay that way. On a drive-in movie theater date, Witherspoon lunges at him and he experiences a sexual awakening.
Walker, who died on Saturday at 40 in a car crash in Valencia, Calif., was the dreamboat of choice for a generation of girls (and some boys) raised on “Saved by the Bell” and the WB Network. It’s no coincidence »

House Next Door on the Oscar prospects of August: Osage County. Yet another critic who thinks Julia is the Mvp. I'm mystified but congrats, Julia!
In Contention wonders if The Wolf of Wall Street is just what Oscar season ordered? We know that the SAG screening went sensationally well in Los Angeles. Our friend Paul, who we just featured in Reader Spotlight, thinks Leonardo DiCaprio is now the Best Actor frontrunner and tweeted this photo from the festivities:
And then they plied us with food, alcohol and music. Unnecessary, but yum. #howlingwolf @kristapley @nathanielr pic.twitter.com/QFXsU8nK0a

“Chemistry is the study of change. It’s growth, decay then transformation” Walter White (SE1EP01)
On numerous occasions Vince Gilligan – creator and executive producer on AMC’s Breaking Bad has stated that he wanted to turn the shows lead character, Walter White from Mr. Chips into Scarface. Although the ‘Scarface’ reference leads us to believe that Walter White’s actions are is fabricated on the grounds set by Brian De Palma’s film of the same name, I’d argue that the series’ main influence is from a movie much more contemporary. That is Sam Medes’ American Beauty (2000) with a key comparison with portrayal of Kevin Spacey’s protagonist Lester Burnham.
Both Walter and Lester are repressed. On the surface they’re illustrated as two middle aged men who appear to be living with something significantly absent from their lives. That is significance. We’re introduced to both protagonists, »

If we trust Sony's viral site for The Daily Bugle, the 2014 sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2 may very well contain every villain written into Spider-Man folk lore. A new article concerning a bank robbery hints at what could be an appearance by "Shocker," which would see the villain joining the confirmed Electro, The Rhino and Green Goblin and the rumoured (deep breath) Vulture, Black Cat and Carnage. Check out the latest Bugle article here....
By Ned Leeds, City Bureau
The NYPD are the city’s greatest heroes, but sometimes even heroes are left scratching their heads. For instance, when $200,000 goes missing from the armored vault at G.K. Mason Bank.
Detective Stan Carter of the NYPD Major Crimes Unit was on scene to comment, stating, ”There’s still a lot we don’t know, but it looks like some kind of sustained vibration literally shook the door off its hinges »

The holiday season is made for spending time with loved ones and getting drunk before 5. And with booze and the occasional conservative grandparent comes the potential for rowdy holiday meals.
Since you’ll likely be surrounded by people over the next few weeks, we want you to know that a few harsh words or stray tears are A-ok. Because if you can’t say something regrettable in front of family, who can you say it in front of, right? Shhh, Grandma. We said no healthcare talk on days ending in “y,” remember?
Film and television know this potential for awkward interaction all too well, or simply that forcing food in front of characters with issues can result in great comedy. Whether you prefer to ask for the asparagus à la Kevin Spacey in American Beauty or, like Will Ferrell, really want your first cousins to know what kind of car »
