Superb Video, Produced By Red Bull, Profiles Legendary Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez

19 August 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The filmmaker that I admire the most has not won any Oscars, is not celebrated on the festival circuit, and very rarely shouts from the rooftops about just how great he is. Robert Rodriguez has been pumping films out since the very early nineties, starting with the acclaimed El Mariachi, a film shot in bordertown Mexico for just $7000 in 1992, but picked up by Columbia Pictures to go on to take north of $2 million at the box-office. Since then he’s gone on to write, produce, direct, shoot, edit, compose the music, and probably make the tea on such films as Desperado, From Dusk ‘Til Dawn, The Faculty, Spy Kids, Machete and Sin City. He has also set up his own studio in Troublemaker Studios, and even owns his own TV channel, the El Rey network, a station that produces the From Dusk ‘Til Dawn spin-off TV series..

This week, Rodriguez »

Director David Hackl Unveils His Earthworks

14 August 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

War is hell, and Saw V director David Hackl is out to prove it's a lot more hellish than you may think with his latest film, Earthworks. There's just one small detail... he's looking to you to help fund a portion of it! Read on for details.

Earthworks is a WWII horror film that follows five American doughboys on their first night in the trenches of the Western Front as they experience the living (and dead) hell that is No Man’s Land. It is to be directed by Hackl and produced by UK outfit Bluebeard Pictures.

Earthworks exists in an isolated trench/No Man’s Land set and creates a sense of abandonment from the start... Five young American soldiers enter France, and on their first night at an Allied trench, everything goes wrong very quickly. Caught up in a beguiling fog, the young characters each come to different but understandable decisions. »

Mistresses Recap: If You Like It Then You Shouldn't Put a Wiretap On It

11 August 2014 8:35 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Who’s the craziest Mistresses character of all?

Could it be Karen Kim, as she orders Pad Thai

During bathrobe-clad sleepovers with patients who cry?

Or maybe it’s Anna, who lives like a hoarder

And might also have a personality disorder?

And then there’s Doc Jacob, who’s totally cute

But too moony-eyed to detect a malpractice suit

We could point at sweet April, who’s fighting the law

Storming FBI offices and shouting “Hell naw!”

Toni Taut and Treacherous is still in the race

At least until Savi takes a bat to »

Check Out Bald Antonio Banderas & Robots on 'Automata' Posters

11 August 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Coming out of left field today is the tease of a sci-fi project that we haven't heard anything about. Automata comes from Spanish filmmaker Gabe Ibáñez, and wrangles Antonio Banderas back into one of his rare sci-fi roles after playing with Spy Kids and The Skin I Live In, two very different films in the genre. This time he's diving into the future, about 50 years to be exact, and he's playing an insurance agent responsible for looking into cases regarding defective androids. Now two posters have popped up showing off a bald Banderas along with some of the robots in the film. It has a Mad Max meets District 9 vibe. Look! Here's the first posters for Gabe Ibáñez's Automata sent to us from Millennium Entertainment: Automata is directed by Spanish filmmaker Gabe Ibáñez (Hierro) from a script he wrote with Igor Legarreta and Javier Sánchez Donate.

Antonio Banderas interview: The Expendables 3, Desperado

11 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Veteran actor Antonio Banderas takls to us about his role in The Expendables 3, working with Robert Rodriguez on Desperado, and more...

One of the greatest strengths that Antonio Banderas possesses as an actor is his ability to be beloved by audiences for entirely different reasons.

For many, especially children, he’s the perfectly (I avoided a cat pun there) charming voice of Puss in Boots in all the DreamWorks incarnations, as well as the father of some uniquely problematic youngsters in the Spy Kids franchise. He’s also developed a rather substantial following of older viewers who appreciate his more romantic and smouldering side in the likes of Evita, Original Sin and Interview With The Vampire, as well as his earlier and racier work with Pedro Almodóvar.

However to me, as well as many of our readers I suspect, Banderas has made a great action hero over the years. »

Josh Greenstein Marketing Chief Negotiating To Re-Up At Paramount

10 August 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Josh Greenstein, who has been Paramount Pictures‘ chief marketing officer since 2011 and whose name has been bandied about for the big Sony marketing job, is now negotiating with Paramount to stay put. This after the walloping opening of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this weekend — a $65M haul which surprised the heck out of everyone. And, let’s face it, a lot of the credit goes to the marketing department at Paramount. This takes both him and former marketing exec Oren Aviv out of the mix for the Sony position.

Greenstein’s negotiations with the studio also come after opening such pics as Transformers: Age of Extinction, Anchorman 2 and The Wolf of Wall Street (to name a few). It was thought Greenstein would exit the studio last year, but then Paramount kept him engaged for another year as it released Noah, »

See two new posters for Antonio Banderas' sci-fi movie 'Automata'

8 August 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Antonio Banderas has dabbled in science fiction with The Skin I Live In and the Spy Kids movies. But the Spanish actor goes full-on future-shock in his new film, Automata. Set half a century into the future, the film stars Banderas as an insurance agent who investigates cases of defective androids and, according to the official synopsis, “uncovers a truth that is far more complex than the make or model of any machine.”

Directed by Gabe Ibáñez, Automata also stars Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Melanie Griffith, Dylan McDermott, and Robert Forster. It will be released in theaters and on VOD Oct. »

Eli Roth’s cannibal horror The Green Inferno pulled from release schedule

8 August 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you were looking forward to seeing Eli Roth back behind the camera for the first time in six years, then it looks like you’re going to have a little longer to wait, with Open Road Films pulling the cannibal horror The Green Inferno from its release schedule with less than a month to go before before its planned date of September 5th.

According to Deadline, the reason behind the move is that the financier Worldview Entertainment has balked at former CEO Christopher Woodrow’s commitment to fund the P&A for the movie. At this point, it is unknown whether Open Road will set a new date for the movie, or if another distributor will step in to prevent it from going straight-to-video or VOD.

The Green Inferno sees Roth directing a cast that includes Lorenza Izzo (Aftershock), Ariel Levy (Aftershock), Daryl Sabara (Spy Kids) and Kirby Bliss Blanton »

Interview: Robert Rodriguez talks about Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

7 August 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Robert Rodriguez talks about Sin City ahead of the release of the long-awaited Sin City: A Dame to Kill For

Robert Rodriguez is crazy enough to have changed the world of filmmaking. Instead of working under the watchful eye of corporate overlords in a huge a studio in Los Angeles, he operates Troublemaker out of Austin, Texas, in hangars on the city’s abandoned airport. He created all of his new movie, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, here: from casting to filming; from creating the wardrobe and props to composing the score; from the special-effects work to designing the posters. Given that his latest release is a sequel to Sin City, a movie that made Us $158 million worldwide, this level of autonomy in the big-business, all-eyes-on-the-bottom- line world of Hollywood is astonishing.
