Everest Releases New Images That Highlight Unfriendly Terrain

27 August 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Everest is just about to hit (September 18th), and while the man vs. nature genre isn’t for everyone, there are some movies worth seeing just for the effort involved, and anything shot, at least partially, on location in Nepal is on that list. Add an incredible cast, and even if the true story about an attempt to reach the summit of Everest gone wrong doesn’t instantly appeal to you, this still has to be one on your radar.

In order to make sure that you’re not misled by the days of CGI and fantastic sets, the film has released some very cool images that, if nothing else, clue you in to the fact that this perhaps wasn’t just a walk in the park for most of the actors.

Take a look below, and lose yourself in the frosty goodness.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Examines the Ares 3 in 'The Martian' Promo

27 August 2015 6:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Our adventure is just beginning. Whoa! This is awesome. Fox has debuted an intriguing new promo video for Ridley Scott's The Martian, featuring real-world astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examining and discussing the Ares 3 mission to Mars. With all the footage we've seen it looks like they're trying to make this as realistic as possible, as if this mission was actually taking place. And I love that angle because it really does make this feel more real, and like it's actually possible. This video delves into the ideas about Mars and why we want to go there, and how we're going to get there. It's a very nice primer for this movie. Here's the new promo for Ridley Scott's The Martian, with Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about Ares 3: You can also see the second trailer for The Martian here with tons of footage + the Ares 3 video promo.

Heitor Pereira Coaxes Emotion Out of Music

26 August 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Heitor Pereira was a boy growing up in rural, heavily forested Brazil, his grandfather — an avid birdwatcher — used to tell him, “Listen to the symphony of the birds and the life around us. Can you imagine a day without these melodies?”

Nowadays Pereira honors that memory within the context of moving pictures, whether mimicking nature or underscoring character and story.

“Melody is still where I start,” says the composer of such animated features as “Despicable Me” and “Minions,” and live-action films like “If I Stay” and “It’s Complicated.” “Even if it’s a birthplace for the score and then becomes textural. If I do that, I never get lost, because melodies have meaning. They are a musical conclusion of a conversation that we may have about a character.”

Pereira is among a long line of film composers — including Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer and Trent Reznor — who established themselves in the pop realm. »

So You Think You Can Dance Recap: Missed Connections

24 August 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This week’s So You Think You Can Dance practically deserved its own post on Craigslist.

 You were the All-Star wearing beige who kept gesticulating wildly with your arms… I was the Team Stage dancer trying to keep my head above water in a complicated routine… You were Medusa, and how the heck am I supposed to make that work?

Yes, I’m exaggerating a wee bit, and no, I am not Michael Slezak. (More on that in a moment.) But the gulf that existed between some of this season’s Top 8 and their All-Star partners was considerable as the week’s routines unfolded, »

Rumor: Peter Cushing's 'Tarkin' Returning For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

24 August 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is already fairly jam-packed with characters, and we may be able to add a very familiar face from the original trilogy to the roster - albeit, a digital version of it. The Daily Mail Online is reporting that the late great Peter Cushing's character from A New Hope, Grand Moff Tarkin, will be back for Gareth Edwards' movie, which revolves around a group of Rebels attempting to steal the plans for the first Death Star. Tarkin was instrumental in building that technological terror, so it does make sense that he'd factor into this story - but even though completely recreating a deceased actor using CGI has been done before (Oliver Reed in Gladiator, Paul Walker in the recent Fast Furious movie, and even Tarkin himself can be glimpsed briefly at the end of Revenge Of The Sith), this would be the first »

Peter Cushing Being Resurrected From The Grave For Star Wars: Rogue One?

24 August 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Lucasfilm

Digitally enhanced performances have an increased prevalence in Hollywood today, but resurrecting a deceased actor completely remains rare practice. The most famed case is probably Oliver Reed in Gladiator, but that could change with news that Peter Cushing’s Grand Moff Tarkin might have a part to play in the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One.

Rogue One follows the Rebellion’s efforts to steal Death Star schematics, which positions it firmly before A New Hope in the franchise’s narrative. As a result, it makes sense for Tarkin to be there, but is it a good idea to recreate Cushing rather than recast the part?

Cushing died in 1994, leaving behind him a legacy of great performances. Not least among them was his turn as Tarkin, who for the opening hour at least, vies directly with Darth Vader for the position of A New Hope’s chief antagonist.

Showtime Is Adapting Patti Smith’s Memoir Just Kids; Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan Have Been Renewed

11 August 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Showtime has picked up the adaptation of Patti Smith's best-selling memoir Just Kids as a limited series. Smith has been working on a script with Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan (of Gladiator and The Aviator fame) for the past four years, about her relationship with the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in New York City throughout the '60s and '70s. “The medium of a television limited series offers narrative freedom and a chance to expand upon the themes of the book," said Smith, who is also co-producing the series. While there haven't been any casting announcements, she has said that she wants Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson — or perhaps a couple of unknowns. "We were 20. We were unknowns, and I think it should be unknowns," she said. In other non–Twin Peaks–related news, Showtime has renewed Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex for 12-episode fourth seasons.

Star Trek: Nemesis - what went wrong?

6 August 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Star Trek 10 was supposed to lead into a further Next Generation crew movie, had all gone to plan. It didn't. So what happened?

1996's Star Trek: First Contact took $150 million worldwide, on a budget of $46 million. 1998's Star Trek: Insurrection managed to swallow a budget of $70 million and only return $118 worldwide, but after the critical feedback about that film, surely a darker action film along the same lines as First Contact would jump the box office back up? That appeared to be the thought pattern at Paramount, as it greenlit a further adventure for the Star Trek: The Next Generation cast. Star Trek: Nemesis was born.

The film, released in December 2002 in the Us, would go on to take $67m at the global box office, off the back of a $60m budget. It'd sell 1.3m DVDs in its first week in America, and in the scheme of things, was a financial disappointment. »

New IMAX Everest Trailer Freezes The Internet

6 August 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If you only see one film in 3D IMAX this year, Everest's combination of disaster epic and National Geographic snowscape cinematography is probably the one to don your goggles for. Contraband's Baltasar Kormakur directs Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal, and here's a new IMAX-branded trailer to give a brass monkey pause.Everest's story is of the 1996 events, made famous by Jon Krakauer's book Into Thin Air (already filmed as a TV movie with Christopher McDonald as Krakauer), in which three separate Everest expeditions ran into tragic difficulty in a sudden storm. This version of what happened is drawn from more sources than just Krakauer however, including other books and new interviews with the survivors. The screenplay is by William Nicholson (GladiatorLes Misérables) and newcomer Justin Isbell.Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner »
