Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

Mark Wahlberg Might Save You From The Bp Oil Spill

20 August 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It should be no surprise to anyone that there’s a Bp oil spill movie in development. It’s primo subject material in that it hits all the necessary check marks for any “based on a true story” event movie. It’s timely – it was a mere four years ago the Deepwater Horizon oil rig blew, seeping a small ocean of oil into the Gulf. It’s exciting – the spill first stemmed from an explosion, which certainly perked up Hollywood’s ears — if Hollywood is a sucker for one thing, it’s non-fiction violence. Exhibit A through E: Twelve Years a Slave, The Hurt Locker, Titanic, Braveheart and Schindler’s List. It’s just as relevant today as it was in 2010 – did you know that the plugged-up well may still be leaking oil into the Atlantic? Deepwater Horizon already has its director in J.C. Chandor (All is Lost) and screenwriter in Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z) and »

Mark Wahlberg Joins Oil Rig Thriller 'Deepwater Horizon'

19 August 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Wahlberg is in negotiations to star in the Summit Entertainment true story adaptation Deepwater Horizon, which has been in development at the studio since March 2011.

The plot is based on the December 2010 New York Times article Deepwater Horizon's Final Hour by David Barstow, David Rohde, and Stephanie Saul. The article chronicles the final 48 hours leading up to the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion off the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, which caused the worst oil spill since the Exxon Valdez.

Mark Wahlberg will play the rig's No. 2 manager in this adaptation which shows the events that lead up to the disaster, along with the acts of heroism by those who tried to rescue crew members in the water, most of which have not been made public. The explosion killed 11 people and injured 16 others.

J.C. Chandor (Margin Call, All Is Lost) is directing from a screenplay originally written by Matthew Sand »

Ten Best: Extreme Weather Films

14 August 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

To celebrate the release of Into the Storm, hitting UK cinemas on the 20th August, we have put together our favourite extreme weather films.

The Perfect Storm

This film reminds us that all extreme weather is 100 times worse when experienced at sea. The Perfect Storm is about the crew of the Andrea Gail, a small sword boat that fishes for swordfish.  The crew decide to ignore weather warnings and risk one last fishing expedition, after a poor season of catch. Little do the crew know, they are heading into the perfect storm, one they are unlikely to survive. Watching this film will show you how far visual effects have come since it was released in 2000. However, as it stars George Clooney, we can forget the visual effects in favour of watching his face.

The Day After Tomorrow

The Day after Tomorrow is one big lesson about global warming and a »

Forecast: Will 'Ninja Turtles' Take Down 'Guardians' This Weekend?

7 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: Playing at 2,651 locations, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earned an estimated $4.6 million from late Thursday shows. Among Summer 2014 releases, that's ahead of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ($4.1 million), Maleficent ($4 million) and Lucy ($2.75 million).While those aren't all apples-to-apples comparisons*Apes opened at 10 p.m., while Turtles started at 7 p.m.*it still suggests that the movie will have no problem earning over $40 million this weekend (Paramount is now expecting mid-to-high $40 millions).Meanwhile, Into The Storm opened to $800,000.Forecast: On what should be another busy August weekend, the latest big-screen version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will attempt to take first place ahead of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.That could be easier said than done. Marvel's last three movies have all dropped between 56 and 58 percent in their second weekends, and there's little reason to expect Guardians will have a steeper decline than that. With strong word-of-mouth, »

'Into the Storm': Film Review

7 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Warner Bros., the studio that distributed Twister (1996) and The Perfect Storm (2000), is now releasing Into the Storm, about the biggest tornado of all time. Does a studio once known for its topical, socially conscious dramas now aim to corner the market on meteorological disaster movies? How the mighty have fallen. Directed by Steven Quale, who worked on the James Cameron blockbusters Titanic and Avatar, this movie is a formidable technical achievement. Since the no-name cast won’t draw crowds, everything depends on the eagerness of young audiences to step aboard the roller coaster. Box office prospects are uncertain.

Syfy Announces "Ghost Brigades" Series

5 August 2014 4:34 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Syfy has begun development of "Ghost Brigades," a TV drama series based on John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" universe book series which will be produced by Universal Cable Productions, Radiant Productions and Bluegrass Films.

Filmmaker Wolfgang Petersen ("Troy," "The Perfect Storm") will oversee the project's development. Jake Thornton and Ben Lustig will pen the first script, while Scott Stuber ("Safe House") will produce.

The story follows 75-yer-old John Perry who enlists in the Colonial Defense Force to fight a centuries-long war for man's expansion into the cosmos. Technology allows his mind to be transplanted into a younger body built to withstand the harshness of fighting a war in space.

"Old Man's War" was first published in 2005 and scored a Hugo Award nomination in 2006. Four further books followed, the second going by the name "Ghost Brigades". An attempt was made to turn the series into a film at Paramount Pictures »

Quiz: Natural Disaster Movies

4 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Everybody loves a good disaster flick. There’s just something about watching the world (often literally) fall to pieces from the comfort of a movie theatre or couch that we just can’t get enough of.

This week, another addition to the disaster genre makes its way onto the big screen with Into the Storm, a found-footage film involving a group of high school students that capture the horror of a massive tornado. The film stars Sarah Wayne Callies (“The Walking Dead”), Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) and Jeremy Sumpter (“Friday Night Lights”).

This isn’t the first film to chronicle the events surrounding rogue tornadoes. 1996’s Twister set the bar for tornado movies, but we think Into the Storm might give it a run for its money based on the wickedly intense trailer.

Other noteworthy disaster films include The Day After TomorrowThe Perfect Storm, and Apollo 13 (yes, we »

Jason Bateman, Tina Fey & Jane Fonda Are Among Family In This Is Where I Leave You Poster

10 July 2014 5:56 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.

The dramatic comedy is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development »

Why Sebastian Junger Made and Self-Released 'Restrepo' Sequel 'Korengal,' New HBO Doc (Video)

20 June 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Vanity Fair writer Sebastian Junger is well-known not only for "The Perfect Storm" (which was made into a George Clooney action movie) and his intrepid war reporting--which he ended after the untimely death in Libya of his long-time partner, British Vanity Fair photographer and cinematographer Tim Hetherington--but the Oscar-nominated documentary "Restrepo." I interviewed Junger and Hetherington for that movie (see video below), and talked to Junger again recently about the sequel "Korengal," which is in current release and available for pre-order on Vhx.  "Restrepo" didn't resemble your standard documentary, in any way. It's not like other embedded war docs, or voice-over narration films, or movies with a strong personality or clear narrative spine. It's another animal. The film dogged me emotionally, messed up my tear ducts. Junger and Hetherington are strapping, manly men. They could hold their own with U.S. soldiers in the toughest mountain terrain. In our. »

Everything mentioned from 2000 and 2001 in VH1's 'I Love the 2000s'

17 June 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Before VH1′s I Love the 2000s special began on June 17, I polled my roommates (whom I forced to watch with me) about their favorite pop culture moments from the year 2000. For about three minutes, everyone was stumped—what’s actually from the year 2000, instead of just under the umbrella term “the 2000s”? It turns out that remembering specific years is a lot harder than you think.

That’s why there’s a saving grace to VH1′s nostalgia-bait series, a 10-part anthology spread out over five days this week. It’s hugely entertaining to hear no-name comedians praise specific »

8 most unusual cinemas in the world: Guantanamo Bay, the ocean and more

14 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

While the combination of sunny weather and sporting events like the World Cup tends to be a mood-improver for most, it's bad news for the box office. Most cinemas will be bracing themselves for a lean weekend, but what about those picturehouses that go the extra mile to stand out?

We've rounded up 8 of the world's most unusual movie-viewing venues below...

Guantanamo Bay Lyceum cinemas, Cuba

There's a great sense of irony in the fact that while the self-confessed architect of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, sits in his guarded prison cell in the world's most notorious detention centre, just the other side of the wall, Us soldiers can watch Oliver Stone's World Trade Centre on the big screen.

There are, in fact, two outdoor cinemas within Guantanamo Bay for the 1,000-strong guard force and people who live and work there. They show the latest Us releases on huge grass areas with tiered stadium seats. »

DVD Review: "Beyond The Poseidon Adventure" (1979) Starring Michael Caine, Sally Field And Telly Savalas

26 May 2014 3:12 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Seven years after his blockbuster success producing the 1972 film The Poseidon Adventure, Irwin Allen revisited the same story for a sequel, Beyond the Poseidon Adventure. The 1979 film represents all the reasons that sequels to most hit films are generally disdained. Yes, there was The Godfather trilogy to buck the trend, but there were also those God-awful sequels to Jaws. Beyond the Poseidon Adventure opens the morning after the capsizing of the cruise ship. Michael Caine is Mike Turner, the financially destitute captain of a small vessel who is facing bankruptcy after losing his cargo in the same violent storm that destroyed The Poseidon. On board his boat are his first mate Wilbur (Karl Malden) and Celeste Whitman (Sally Field), a perky but klutzy young drifter the men have befriended. They stumble upon the capsized wreck of the Poseidon and Turner immediately smells financial opportunity in the tragedy. »

As Tribeca Kicks Off, 'A Brony Tale' Leads Some Must-See Docs

16 April 2014 1:46 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“The business of the business is so crazy and complicated that we forget why we’re doing what we’re doing,” said veteran producer and Hollywood refugee Paula Weinstein at a kickoff lunch for the Tribeca Film Festival Tuesday. “Now, I’m reminded everyday why we’re doing what we’re doing.” The veteran producer of “Analyze This,” “The Perfect Storm,” and “The Company Men" is enjoying in her third month as a VP at Tribeca Enterprises. Youth has a lot to do with it, Weinstein said. After all, the Tribeca Film Festival is only 13, so there were matzohs and macaroons on hand and a glancing nod at Passover, as well as acknowledgement by Tribeca founder Jane Rosenthal that the festival planned mostly to do what it had done before -- just better. Weinstein, who recently relocated from La to Manhattan, couldn’t be happier about it. She said the »

Stormy Weather Flicks, from 'Twister' to 'Noah' and 'Into the Storm' (New Trailer, Clips)

27 March 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With Darren Aronofksy's "Noah" storming into theaters this weekend, plus the arrival of a new trailer for the latest weather disaster entry "Into the Storm," we've rounded up some clips from titles in the Meteorologic Mayhem genre, dominated by prescient disaster king Roland Emmerich ("The Day After Tomorrow," "2012"). Non-Emmerich entries include Wolfgang Petersen's "The Perfect Storm," Kevin Costner headliner "Waterworld," animated "Ice Age: The Meltdown," Juan Antonio Bayona's emotion-wrenching portrait of the Thailand tsunami "The Impossible" (starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts) and that flying-cow Ilm classic "Twister," which helped to inaugurate sell-the-vfx-before-the-movie marketing.  What's your fave weather disaster film? What have we left out?  For its part, "Into the Storm" is helmed by Steven Quale ("Final Destination 5").  Richard Armitage (Thorin from the "Hobbit" films) stars.

Lily Tomlin And Jane Fonda Head To Netflix For Grace And Frankie

20 March 2014 5:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix just upped their game. With recent developments over at Amazon Studios – which saw the retail giant move into original programming and streaming in a big way – it would have been understandable if Netflix had begun to sweat, just a little. But instead of giving a cursory glance over their shoulder to see their competition snapping at their heels, they are moving full-steam ahead, partnering on shows with studios like Marvel, and commissioning impressive original projects, like Grace and Frankie – a new comedy series starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.

There is some formidable talent behind this one. Firstly, it is created by the goddess of comedy television, Marta Kauffman, who previously co-created one of the most successful TV shows in television history – Friends. Her co-creator here is Howard J. Morris, who worked with Kauffman on the TV show Dream On, and also has According To Jim and Sullivan & Son on his resume. »

Interview: Bopper discusses his 'Amazing Race: All-Stars' medical exit

24 February 2014 9:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Amazing Race" has had twists that sent teams home before leaving Los Angeles, but no Racer has ever gone less distance than William "Bopper" Minton.   Sunday (February 23) night's "Amazing Race: All-Stars" premiere began with a sad twist for Team Kentucky.    Bopper, a fan favorite who cheered for partner Mark through an arduous, health-testing Bollywood challenge in their first season, began experiencing internal pain the night before the Race was set to begin, was diagnosed with an inflamed pancreas and was told he shouldn't Race. Instead, Mark was paired, seemingly out of nowhere, with fellow Kentuckian Mallory, making her third appearance on the show, but her first without father Gary.   That's the narrative as presented by "The Amazing Race" on Sunday.   On Monday morning, I talked with Bopper about his medical condition, how he handled it and how the show handled it. Bopper explained his recent perfect storm of catastrophes »
