13 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pure Flix has released a new trailer for The Case for Christ, a religious drama telling the true story of Lee Strobel, an award-winning investigative journalist and avowed atheist, who applied his well-honed journalistic and legal skills to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife, only to result in unexpected and life-altering results.

His wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ compels Lee to utilize his journalistic and legal training to disprove the claims of Christianity—pitting his resolute atheism against her growing faith. Based on Strobel’s bestselling book of the same name, The Case For Christ is a dramatic and heartfelt telling of their compelling journey.

Gold Review

28 January 2017 9:44 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Loosely inspired by the story of David Walsh and the Bre-x Minerals mining scandal in the 1990’s, Gold is director Stephen Gaghan’s first wide release directorial effort since Syriana over a decade ago. Unlike that film though, Gaghan didn’t handle writing duties here, and quality may have suffered because of it.

Scripted intricacies in Gold are not nearly as incisive and sophisticated as previous Gaghan efforts like Syriana or his Oscar-winning screenplay for Traffic. Instead, writers Patrick Massett and John Zinman constantly rely on fortune cookie-style dialogue to hammer home messages that never reach the profoundness they so desire. It’s still a fascinating story, with a topsy-turvy third act that’s fairly engaging finale if you weren’t already familiar with the real life scandal, but what really saves this film from mediocrity starts and ends with Matthew McConaughey.

Gold centers on the charismatic and relentlessly hopeful »

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.

Miguel Ferrer, Character Actor Extraordinaire, Passes Away at 61

20 January 2017 3:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Actor Miguel Ferrer, known for a variety of distinctive roles in movies and television shows, has passed away, according to Variety. He was 61. The son of Jose Ferrer and Rosemary Clooney and cousin of George Clooney began his entertainment career as a musician before turning to acting, landing his first role in 1981. He began popping up in television shows and movies, then broke through in a big way as the nasty and ambitious corporate stooge Bob Morton in RoboCop (above). Note: clip below is Nsfw due to explicit language and bloody violence.   He showed a different side of his acting personality as FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield on TV's Twin Peaks, a forensic analyst with a cutting sense of humor.   In Steven Soderbergh's Traffic, Ferrer was...

Great Job, Internet!: Explore the 10 best uses of color in film, including Sin City, Vertigo, and more

20 January 2017 11:18 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Color is often the most memorable aspect of a movie: Think of La La Land’s bright Crayola shades, Steven Soderbergh saturating the screen with Traffic’s individual primary colors, or the moment when Dorothy walks into the wonderland of Oz. Film directors often work with their art directors and cinematographers to craft specific palettes for their own particular productions. But which are the most successful?

Gizmodo’s Casey Chan enthusiastically reports on CineFix’s new video that ranks what it considers to be the 10 best uses of color in film. And the selections may not be what you expect: None of the films above are mentioned, for example. CineFix gets specific about types of colors: not individual shades, but they way they are used. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, for example, owns the “soft colors” category, while Hitchcock’s Vertigo is best at “complimentary” shades. Robert ...

Tom Clancy’S The Division Video Game Movie Lands Oscar-Winning Filmmaker To Helm

20 January 2017 11:15 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Assassin’s Creed seemed it would be the one to turn the tide on the bad luck video game movies have faced for decades. It had all the fixing for a memorable movie: a great premise, a talented director, and an A-list cast. Unfortunately, the resulting film didn’t really seem to strike a chord with audiences, and the movie sort of fizzled out in theaters. While it wasn’t what one would categorize as a bomb, its current come of $188 million on a $125 million budget isn’t the most promising of hauls.

Yet, we know this isn’t the end. The genre of video game movies have struggled for years, and will likely continue to do so for a very long time. The fact is that there are plenty of amazing stories that can be pulled from these IPs that would do wonders for the big screen. Ubisoft has »

Ubisoft Has Found An Oscar-Winning Writer To Helm Tom Clancy's The Division Movie

20 January 2017 1:08 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After a rather cold reception for the Assassin's Creed movie, Ubisoft Motion Pictures is attempting to warm things up a bit, by sending us on a trip to frozen, post-apocalyptic New York. We already knew that Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Miss Sloane) were attached to the project as stars and producers, and now we finally know who's going to sit in the director's chair : Stephen Gaghan. Gaghan won an Oscar® for Traffic (best adapted screenplay) and received a nomination for Syriana. It won't be his first contact with the world of video-games either, as he wrote the script for Call Of Duty: Ghost. "We are really excited to bring Stephen's unique vision of the game to film audiences around the globe," the CEO of Ubisoft's movie division said in a statement.

Tom Clancy’s The Division movie gets its director

19 January 2017 10:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 20, 2017

The film of the videogame Tom Clancy's The Division lands Stephen Gaghan to direct...

The current running total for the movie of UbiSoft’s Assassin’s Creed stands at just shy of $190m worldwide, some way shy of what it and 20th Century Fox would have wanted for it.

Whilst all concerned still have decisions to make, then, over whether to go for an Assassin’s Creed 2, other UbiSoft movie projects are nonetheless moving forward. Plans remain afoot for a Ghost Recon film, for instance. And now we get some definite news with regards The Division.

Stephen Gaghan, the helmer of Syriana and the incoming Gold, is set to sign on the dotted line to direct the film. He’s an Oscar winner, for his screenplay to Traffic, and also was one of the campaign writers for Call Of Duty: Ghosts. »

Stephen Gaghan to Write and Direct The Division Film

19 January 2017 10:03 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Division film is moving forward and have now assigned Stephen Gaghan to the project to write and direct.

 

The Division movie has been quiet since announcing Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain would be starring in the film based off the popular game. Academy Award winning writer and director Stephen Gaghan (Syriana, Traffic) will take the helm of the project. This will be the 7th film announced by Ubisoft Motion Pictures and the third to have actual casting crew assigned.

 

Stephen Gaghan is a great writer but the studio is reeling from the mediocre reception to Assassin’s Creed. With Tom Hardy still supposedly in to play Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell the studio needs a success with this one. Fellow writers at Cinelinx have said a real tangible villain will have to be present. The Division is based on the game centering around a deadly virus being released on Black Friday in Manhattan, »

The Lrm Interview with Gold Director Stephen Gaghan

19 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Even filmmaker Stephen Gaghan will admit it’s been far too long since he’s had a movie in theaters with the Oscar-nominated political thriller Syriana. It got him his second Oscar nomination after winning an Oscar for writing Stephen Soderbergh’s Oscar-winning Traffic a few years earlier. 

He’s finally back with Gold, a movie loosely based on the real-life Bre-x gold scandal with Matthew McConaughey playing Kenny Wells, a man struggling to keep his father’s mining business alive after his passing. A vision of there being gold in Indonesia, puts him in contact with geologist Michael Acosta (Edgar Ramirez) who believes that he can help Wells find that gold. After a trying start where Kenny almost succumbs to malaria, Acosta finds evidence of gold, which gets many investing in their company, but as with the Bre-x scandal, things weren’t what they seemed.
