20 actors who almost got the part: Katniss, Loki, Bond, Batman

29 March 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

With rumours flying about a new Indiana Jones and Disney reportedly closing in on their final choices for Jj Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII, the Hollywood casting machine is operating at an even higher temperature than usual.

You'll be familiar with some of these near-misses, but others are frankly astonishing. Which rapper almost took Matt Damon's role in Elysium? Which former Friends star was the first choice to front Men in Black? And why is Leonardo DiCaprio Christian Bale's nemesis? Read on...

Al Pacino - Star Wars

Pacino revealed during a Q&A session last year that the role of roguish smuggler Han Solo was "his for the taking" back in the '70s, but he turned it down because he didn't understand the script. Harrison Ford made the role iconic and ended up having his own issues with Lucas's script, famously telling the director "You can type this s**t, »

Now Hear Me Out: Michael Bay is an Excellent Director

27 March 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Michael Bay has been around for a while and his movies are always so divisive. Some say he ruined Transformers, others say he is about to ruin the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. To be clear though he is only producing — nobody blames Steven Spielberg for Transformers so why should we blame Bay if Tmnt isn't any good?

I believe Michael Bay gives us what we want regardless of whether we actually want to admit it. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who is partly responsible with getting Bay in the spotlight, has said, 

“Michael knows what audiences like, because he’s one of them. He has a strong sense of what makes a thrilling, entertaining movie ... just when the audience thinks they’ve seen it all, Michael gives them even more.”

We in the geek community like to hate on Bay's Transformers franchise, rolling our collective eyes whenever a new Transformers film comes around. »

Michael Bay Attached to New Adventure Film at Paramount

Pain and Gain aside, Michael Bay has been in the world of Transformers for eight years now. Eight years. That’s almost a decade removed from the Michael Bay of old. Long gone are the days of the high-concept Michael Bay action films like Bad Boys, The Rock or Armageddon. Even The Island, Pearl Harbor and […]

Will 'True Detective 2' Star Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Rogen?

11 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Look, even if you didn't even see the "True Detective" finale, there's plenty to admire about Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Rogen's new parody of the grim HBO series that's ushering in a great McConaissance. First of all, it's funny. Second, it features entire verses of '80s ballads. Third, the name Diane Warren is mentioned. The name Diane Warren should fill you with endorphins, and if it doesn't, you are clearly not familiar enough with Faith Hill's "There You'll Be" from the "Pearl Harbor" soundtrack.  I actually wonder if Jimmy Kimmel could be a serious actor. He doesn't ever break character, and he can look pretty serious while saying ludicrous dialogue. I wouldn't have hated if he played Louis C.K.'s part in "American Hustle," actually.  »

'Stalingrad': Everything You Need to Know About the WWII Movie

28 February 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As the lights of Sochi fade and our Olympic athletes make their way home, there's a little piece of Russia's cinematic legacy that has made the journey along with them.

Opening in limited release is Fedor Bondarchuk's "Stalingrad," a $30 million war epic being released in North America by Sony Pictures. Here's a primer on the film, which looks closely at The Battle of Stalingrad in WWII.

What is the film about?

The Battle of Stalingrad, a story already told in countless books and films, is one of the defining and most brutal battles of the Second World War. With a mix of hubris from the German side, and unabashed attrition from the Russians, this was a seven-month campaign that left more than 1.5 million people dead, yet was critical to breaking the back of the German Army and paving the way for their eventual defeat.

So, what does Bondarchuk do differently? »

Pompeii Review

20 February 2014 3:24 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Until Titanic was released to record-breaking box office and a slew of awards, director James Cameron was known for straight-up action movies.  Titanic is still an action movie; it just happens to have a cheesy love story in the middle, and its epic sweep and central tragedy connected with audiences.  Two lesser directors attempted to repeat this formula, but with far less success.  Michael Bay attempted it in 2001 with Pearl Harbor and now Paul W.S. Anderson, the director behind Mortal Kombat, Alien vs. Predator, and multiple Resident Evil movies, has tried with Pompeii, a movie that not only apes Titanic, but also Gladiator.  Anderson may recognize the formula and have more weapons of destruction at his disposal, but he neither has the skill or the originality to move Pompeii out of the shadow of giants. In 79 A.D., a volcano erupted near Pompeii, wiping out all the inhabitants, but the »

Stalingrad review: 'War. What is it good for? Pov bomb shots'

20 February 2014 4:28 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Fyodor Bondarchuk; Screenwriters Sergey Snezhkin, Ilya Tilkin; Starring: Pyotr Fyodorov, Thomas Kretschmann, Mariya Smolnikova, Yanina Studilina; Running time: 131 mins; Certificate: 15

War. What is it good for? IMAX 3D movies that wallow in the spectacle of horrific real-life battles, judging by Stalingrad. A lavish Russian production based on the devastating World War II battle in 1942, Fyodor Bondarchuk's effort is watchable and sporadically gripping, but fails to convincingly depict the human drama lurking amidst the twisted metal and ruins.

Stalingrad follows a small group of Soviet reconnaissance soldiers who manage to take control of a building in a German occupied square in the derelict Russian city. The narrative seamlessly shifts between the opposing forces, seeking to focus on the humanising effects of women on Nazi officer Khan (Thomas Kretschmann) and rival Russian commander Gromov (Pyotr Fyodorov) as their men struggle for territorial superiority. Alas, the movie fails to resist the »

6 February 2014 8:46 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

These dinosaurs are going to be Big. But that's the way they should be. Some excellent news for film purists out there - director Colin Trevorrow has tweeted confirmation the Jurassic World, the upcoming Jurassic Park reboot/sequel in the works for 2015, will be shot on film. Trevorrow was tweeting about the news that cinematographer John Schwartzman (of Pearl Harbor, Seabiscuit, Green Hornet, Amazing Spider-Man, Saving Mr. Banks) would be shooting the project and will be shooting "this April on 35mm and 65mm film." For those unfamiliar, 65mm film is also IMAX-size, meaning they're shooting large format for some scenes.

Super Bowl Movie Trailers 2014: 'Amazing Spider-Man 2,' 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' and More (Video)

2 February 2014 10:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Braving the swirling winds of the polar vortex (which had thankfully died down substantially; we were getting tired of wearing more layers than a Victorian-era prostitute), Super Bowl Xlviii took place in the wintery northeast this Sunday. While the game itself was fairly humdrum (poor Broncos), there were a fair amount of exciting movie previews that played during the commercial breaks. So, hooray for Hollywood!

This year, we got bite-sized morsels that doled out the big-budget extravaganzas scheduled to hit theaters in the months ahead -- for things like "Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Need for Speed," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Muppets Most Wanted," "Noah," and, or course, "Transformers: Age of Extinction."

'The Monuments Men' Release Date: 2/7/14

What's It About? Based on the true story of a group of intrepid art historians who, towards the end of World War II, fly into Nazi-occupied Europe in an effort to retrieve »

Viral Video Chart: House of Cards, Sherlock and American Hustle

Kevin Spacey is back, Benedict Cumberbatch meets his match – and a secret behind a 10-times Oscar nominated hit movie

Know your enemy! Kevin Spacey returns as Francis Underwood in the sequel to the Netflix blockbuster House of Cards and, as our preview reveals, the web of political intrigue is tightening around the new Us vice president and his wife, played by Robin Wright. While Underwood battles against friends and foes, over on the BBC Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch), comes into conflict with Charles Augustus Magnussen in a case involving missing letters.

Magnussen's first appearance came at the end of the first episode, The Empty Hearse, when he watched a recording of Holmes rescuing John Watson (Martin Freeman) from a bonfire on Guy Fawkes night. The newspaper proprietor, who urinates in Sherlock's fireplace, is played by The Killing's Danish actor Lars Mikkelsen. Sherlock says: "I've dealt with murderers, psychopaths. None of »

Michael Bay made headlines this week, but not the good kind like you want. The director of films like Transformers and Transformers took a break from making his third or fourth Transformers to appear onstage at the Computer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Samsung wanted him to say a few words about their new curved TV. Bay began his speech with the tantalizing declaration, “I get to dream for a living. »

Michael Bay's CES stage fright gives more ammo to his critics

8 January 2014 5:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The much-maligned film director walked out of his own talk when his autocue malfunctioned during his promotion of Samsung's new bendy TVs. Shame he couldn't transform his performance

Age: 48.

Appearance: 1970s-vintage TV weatherman.

Occupation: Film director.

Anything I might have seen? Transformers, possibly?

No. Transformers 2?

Nope. Transformers 3?

No. How long can this carry on? That's it. Transformers 4 isn't released until later this year. He also directed Armageddon, Pearl Harbour and Bad Boys. To date, his films have grossed more than $3bn globally.

Any of them any good? Not according to, well, everyone. His special effects-laden blockbusters routinely attract critical derision. The New Yorker's David Denby called Bay "stunningly, almost viciously, untalented".

I guess Bay must have a pretty thick skin to carry on in the face of that sort of thing. Apparently he's quite awkward and fragile in real life.

Who says? Transformers star Megan Fox, although she also »

In defence of Michael Bay

7 January 2014 8:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Readers panel: The hugely successful yet much-maligned director is not having a good week. To send some good cheer his way, we'd like to hear from film fans who are proud to say they enjoy his work

Poor old Michael Bay. The director of Pearl Harbor ("a big, loud, dumb, boring mega-movie" – The Guardian), Transformers ("as enjoyable as a package holiday in Helmand Province without a flak jacket" – The Guardian) and, most recently, Pain & Gain ("too long" – The Guardian), had an embarrasing moment this week when his teleprompter malfunctioned during a presentation at the high-profile Consumer Electronics Show – leading to these excrutiating scenes.

As the director of big, popular action movies, Michael Bay is an easy target for critics who find his work objectionable (see many a Guardian comment thread for evidence) – and so, to shine a little good will in Bay's direction, we'd like to hear from readers who »

Update: Will MSNBC’s Host Apology Streak End As Mitt Romney Accepts Latest Mea Culpa?

2Nd Update, 8:20 Am: Will cable news programs steer clear of comedy after MSNBC‘s botched Melissa Harris-Perry end-of-year show left her tearily apologizing for the show’s gags targeting Mitt Romney‘s adopted black grandson, and Fox News Channel devoting yet more airtime to MSNBC’s show host foot-in-mouth epidemic? Most recently, Romney was a guest on Fox News this past Sunday, in the course of which, during a segment known as “Romney Reacts To MSNBC For Mocking Family Photo”, he told Chris Wallace, “I recognize that people make mistakes and the folks at MSNBC made a big mistake. They’ve apologized for it. That’s all you can ask for. I am going to move on from that. I am sure they want to move on from it. Look, I’ve made plenty of mistakes myself and they’ve apologized for this and, you know, I think we can go on from there. »
