Harvey Weinstein is one of the most powerful, outspoken, and controversial men in Hollywood. The studio executive who launched Miramax and The Weinstein Company is a passionate film lover, a master promoter, a ruthless Oscar campaigner, and just about everything else you need to be in order to make it to the top in the business. Even if you find what he does unscrupulous or the content he produces not very good, it is hard not to admire the man for how successful he has made himself, no matter how frustrating it might be. Weinstein recently had a chat with Deadline, covering a wide variety of topics from the Netflix series "Marco Polo" to the troubles with the upcoming Broadway musical adaptation of Finding Neverland to Oscar campaigning to his reputation of recutting films, giving him the nickname "Harvey Scissorhands." I had no idea the Weinsteins were behind "Marco Polo »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie…
Christine (Nicole Kidman, The Others) wakes up next to a man (Colin Firth, The Kings Speech) she does not recognise. Panic stricken, he slowly explains that he is her husband, and that she suffered a terrible accident that has given her amnesia. Every morning, Christine wakes up a stranger, and every night her memories fade into nothing. With the help of Dr Nasch (Mark Strong, The Imitation Game), Christine is trying to regain her memory. That is, until one day, when new terrifying truths emerge that force her to question everyone around her, and what really happened to her on the day of her accident.
Fmtv will be back on Friday with the weekly Movie Newsgasm. »

Just watched the trailer for "The Lazarus Effect" (watch it above), and I'm happy to report that its No. 5 placement on my ranked list of 2015 horror movies so far appears to be justified. At the very least, I predict a serviceable contemporary spin on "Flatliners," with a side of "Pet Semetary" thrown in for good measure. Do not screw with science, y'all. Oh, but wait, there's more! Because I'm a sick person who's watched too many horror movies, my mind was positively buzzing with visual references as I watched this. Below are five other movies (plus one book!) the "Lazarus Effect" trailer reminded me of. "The Others" The part where brought-back-from-the-dead Olivia Wilde is under the sheet conjured up this creepy "I am your daughter" scene from the 2001 chiller starring Nicole Kidman. "Event Horizon" Ollivia Wilde has the blackest eyes...just like Sam Neill's dead wife in this worse-than-you-remember Paul W.S. Anderson sci-fi. »

Madrid — Having distributed “Spanish Affair,” the biggest Spanish hit of 2014 and indeed of all time with a €56.2 million ($67.4 million) box office gross, Universal Pictures International Spain is betting on potentially one of the biggest, if not the biggest, Spanish film of this year: Alejandro Amenabar’s “Regression.”
Starring Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson, “Regression” will bow in the U.S. by TWC-Dimension on Aug. 28 and will be released in Spain by Uip this fall. It is sold internationally by FilmNation Entertainment.
Also written by Amenabar, “Regression” marks his return to the mystery-suspense genre: Set in Minnesota in 1990, the film stars Hawke as detective Bruce Kenner, investigating the case of young Angela (Watson), who accuses her father, John Gray (David Dencik), of an unspeakable crime.
