David Fincher’s HBO Series With James Ellroy Titled Shakedown; Will Also Direct Living On Noise for the Network

18 December 2014 5:12 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Back in September we reported that David Fincher and James Ellroy were collaborating on a Los Angeles-set 1950s crime noir series for HBO and now that show has a title, Shakedown.  Remember when Fincher had those five fallow years between Panic Room and Zodiac?  Boy am I glad he's not repeating that, he's one of our master filmmakers so I'll take pretty much whatever he's serving up. Fincher will also direct another pilot for HBO called Living On Noise.  That series will reportedly center around the director's involvement in the 1980's music video scene (you probably already know that he shot videos for Paula Abdul, Madonna, Nine Inch Nails, and Aerosmith back in the day).  Hit the jump for more on David Fincher's involvement in Shakedown and Living On Noise. Per Deadline, Shakedown is "set in the tabloid world and the underbelly of Los Angeles in the 1950s and »

Home Alone: the best Christmas movie of all time?

18 December 2014 3:10 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could 1990 comedy Home Alone be the best Christmas movie of all time? James lays out his argument...

Gremlins is great and Elf is ace. Bad Santa is bitchin' and The Muppets Christmas Carol is sensational, inspirational, celebrational and Muppetational. Die Hard is dead good, Miracle On 34th Street is magic and It's A Wonderful Life is truly, erm, wonderful.

None of them, though, can confidently state that they are the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. Only one film can claim that title, and that film is Home Alone, which is undoubtedly and without question the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. There's legitimate space for a debate as to whether Home Alone 2: Lost In New York deserves the prestigious label but, really, with Home Alone being the original article I think it's only right that we let it stand as number one.

There's a chance that this might be news to you, »

Watch: Fincher, Affleck, Pike & Flynn Talk 'Gone Girl' on Charlie Rose

20 October 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's no doubt that Gone Girl is a hit, and it's undoubtedly of the most successful films David Fincher has ever directed, and it's likely reached audiences that otherwise might not seek out the filmmaker's work. And if you're like me, then you're hungry to hear Fincher, writer Gillian Flynn and stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike talk about the film itself. They all showed up for a chat on "Charlie Rose" and the result is a solid 36-minute discussion about the making of the film, whether the characters were likable, and of course, the film's commentary on marriage and the insane world of media. It's definitely worth a watch. Here's the chat with the cast and filmmakers of Gone Girl on "Charlie Rose" from Hulu (via Film Stage): Gone Girl is directed by David Fincher (of Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Zodiac, Panic Room, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, »

Us Box Office Report – Brad Pitt’s Fury topples Gone Girl with $23.5 million opening

20 October 2014 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your Us Box Office Report for w/c 20th October 2014…

Having closed the 58th BFI London Film Festival this past weekend, David Ayer’s World War II tank movie Fury has knocked Gone Girl from the number one spot in a solid weekend for the box office.

Starring Brad Pitt and Shia LeBeouf, Fury took $23.5 million over 3,173 screens, despite the middling reviews from some critics. This puts it on the right path to easily make back its $68 million budget, as it has yet to open anywhere else in the world.

Although having been knocked from its throne at the top of the charts, David Fincher’s Gone Girl had another good weekend at the box office, taking $17.8 million to bring its domestic total to $107 million. Gone Girl is now the fifth most successful movie from Fincher and should overtake Alien3, Panic Room and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but »

Box Office Report: Fury Rolls Past Gone Girl For #1 Spot

19 October 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was the fourth straight weekend where an R-rated drama took the box office crown, as the World War II thriller Fury earned an estimated $23.5 million. This marked a solid opening for star Brad Pitt and was slightly higher than similar star-studded war titles The Monuments Men ($22 million) and Valkyrie ($21 million over the weekend, after a Thursday Christmas Day opening). As for Pitt, it was a better debut than Moneyball ($19.5 million); however, it was noticeably behind the opening of another war film starring the actor as the leader of a group of soldiers, Inglourious Basterds ($38 million).

Moving forward, Fury is likely to continue bringing in good money. There is little competition for adults in the coming weeks, with the exception of expanding independent titles like Birdman and St. Vincent, and the A- CinemaScore means audiences are liking what they see. The film saw only a 3% jump from Friday to Saturday, »

Critic's Notebook: ‘Gone Girl’ Provokes, But Does It Deliver?

19 October 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Crime and punishment have long occupied David Fincher. With varying degrees of scalpel-sharp precision and gruesome indulgence, in films ranging from Se7en to Panic Room to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, he’s trafficked in dark and pulpy fare. His masterpiece, Zodiac, turns an unsolved real-life crime story into an existential inquiry into truth and obsession. It’s a movie that deepens with every viewing. In comparison, there’s little reason to revisit his latest feature; once the missing-person mystery has delivered its jolts, Gone Girl is a closed circuit of a story. And yet the think-piece culture won’t

Fury, which stars Brad Pitt ("Meet Joe Black") and was directed by David Ayer ("End of Watch"), will debut in first-place this weekend. The World War II film pulled in $8.8M on Friday and is now estimated to have a total just north of $24M for the weekend. Last week's box office champ, Gone Girl, which stars Ben Affleck ("Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice") and was directed by David Fincher ("Panic Room"), will finish in second-place this weekend with $18M. That'll push its domestic total over $100M. Universal's Dracula Untold took a 65% tumble from last weekend's strong second-place finish. It will end up in sixth-place with only  $8.5M to $9.3M. Michael Keaton's Birdman opened in just four theaters this weekend and had a healthy $112K per-screen-average.   1). Fury (Sony), 3,173 theaters / $8.8M Fri.

‘Birdman’ soars high with stellar performances and brazen cinematography

Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Written by Alejandro González Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo

Directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu

USA, 2014

The cast and crew, fly high in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), directed by visionary Alejandro González Iñárritu. Michael Keaton stars as Riggan Thomson, a washed-up actor who never bounced back from his peak stardom days as part of a 1990s superhero franchise, and who is desperate to gain back some spark for his faded career. Riggan attempts to jolt himself back into the limelight through the triple threat of writing, directing and starring in a Broadway adaptation of Raymond Carver’s What We Talk About When We Talk About Love.

Much of the film’s content can be compared to Keaton’s own career and his peaking success in the  late 80s/early 90s with Tim Burton’s Batman films, and although »

Non-Twilight Film Roles That Will Restore Your Faith in Kristen Stewart

16 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

With Camp X-Ray hitting theaters this weekend, Kristen Stewart is finally exploring life beyond Twilight. The indie drama, which tells the story of one soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, is a far cry from Bella and the world of vampires Stewart became so famous for over the past five years. During that time, Stewart became pigeonholed and often hated on for her participation in The Twilight Saga. And for those who only know those films are doing themselves a disservice. Her latest film — the first of three high profile films she has coming out this year — has earned the actress accolades on the festival circuit and reminded many of the promise she showed in roles, such as Sarah Altman in Panic Room or Emily in Adventureland. It’s those films that fans (and the haters) should watch if they want to restore their faith in Stewart.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s ‘Gone Girl’ serves its Midwestern claustrophobia chilled

14 October 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In 2010, David Fincher reaching out to the frontman from Nine Inch Nails felt like a 90s reunion, a fan casting list straight out of BuzzFeed’s nostalgia machine. In hindsight, Trent Reznor and longtime collaborator Atticus Ross created something far more dour and steely than “The Facebook Movie” in their score for The Social Network and now two of them have golden statues to show for it. In hindsight, it seems like an inevitable collaboration between a director who found his start music videos and two of the most influential voices in music over the last quarter-century. Toss in table scraps from Fincher’s CGI-consumed Panic Room in a 2005 video for “Only,” and yeah, crazier things have happened.

Fast forward four years, dozens of awards nominations, critical acclaim and a follow-up in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, and Reznor and Ross have revealed a ghostly, garbled compositional style influenced »

If you haven't headed to theaters to catch David Fincher's latest masterful thriller Gone Girl, then you should rectify that immediately. Fincher is one of the most gifted, meticulous and precise filmmakers working today, and you can see just how impressive his work is in this recent visual essay looking back at his work on films like Se7en, Zodiac, The Game, Panic Room and more. And it's the latter film giving us an even more in-depth look at Fincher's process, from pre-visualization to a carefully constructed set crafted to allow Fincher to move the camera freely on the set. Plus, it's cool to see interviews from the set with Jodie Foster, Jared LetoForest Whitaker and a young Kristen Stewart from 12 years ago. Watch below!

Us Box Office Report – Gone Girl makes it two weeks at the top of the chart

13 October 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Your Us Box Office Report for w/c 13th October 2014…

After just squeaking a victory over Annabelle last week, David Fincher’s Gone Girl has made it two weeks at the top of the Us box office, beating out new releases Dracula Untold and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. But while its all smiles for Fincher, Gravity stormed the top of the charts with $43.1 million at the same point last year…

Dropping 28.6% from last week, Gone Girl still brought in $26.8 million to bring its domestic total to $78.2 million. With its worldwide total not far behind at $62.1 million, Gone Girl is sitting very happily with a $140.3 million total. While the opening weekend was a record breaker for Fincher, Gone Girl currently sits behind The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Seven, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Social Network, Panic Room and Alien3 for an all-time career best. »

Watch a Sharp Video Essay Break Down What David Fincher Doesn’t Do

8 October 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The great Tony Zhou of Every Frame a Painting has returned with a new video which breaks down David Fincher‘s techniques, specifically the things the director doesn’t do. How do self-imposed limitations strengthen shots? How can people talking become cinematic? How many insides of refrigerators can Fincher show us? It’s an excellent, brief examination (7 minutes) that’s probably fascinating to watch just before seeing or re-seeing Gone Girl, particularly the segments on using empty space to share information. You can imagine how zooming in on a broken coffee table offers a nice emotional kick with only a few seconds of screen time, or how staging a young detective far away from the distraught husband might tell you how he feels about him. There are two notes I’d add to this video essay. One, Fincher achieves a great deal of his impressive visuals thanks to a longstanding partnership with Dp Jeff Cronenweth (son of »
