Focus Puts Will Smith Front and Center of an Attractive and Affable Thriller

12 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Movies about con men come in a few different varieties — from the broadly comical (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels) to the more dramatically entertaining (Catch Me If You Can) — but it’s rare to find one without humorous intentions because something about the character type lends itself to casual comedy and likable leads. One of those rarities is 1993’s Six Degrees of Separation starring a fresh-faced Will Smith, and now twenty two years later an older, wiser Smith has returned to the confidence game with the slick but slight Focus. Nicky (Smith) is a career flimflammer who long ago graduated from picking pockets to managing a double-digit team of hustlers who target populated tourist areas like New Orleans during a big game stealing watches, wallets, purses, luggage and more. He finds a new protege in Jess (Margot Robbie) after conning his way into a meal at a fancy restaurant and meeting her as she attempts a sloppy swindle of »

Every Day I'm Hustling: Film’s 10 most memorable con artists

25 February 2015 2:17 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Big Willy’s latest big screen outing makes its way to the multiplex this month. In Focus, Smith plays the consummate con man, a smooth operator who liberates people of their wealth with the help of a Margot Robbie-shaped femme fatale.

The duo of tricksters aren’t the first con artists to grace the silver screen however. So from pool sharks and grifters to tricksters, card cheats and American hustlers; here’s our rundown of the most memorable con artists in movie history.

 

Fast Eddie Felson – The Hustler (1961)

One of the finest fraudster films to ever grace the multiplex; The Hustler stars Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson, a pool shark intent on toppling legendary cue-man Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). With its smoky sets, stunning black and white cinematography and superb performances from Newman and Gleason; the film is just as good today as it was on its release more than 50 years ago. »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Gets Official Synopsis As Shooting Begins

18 February 2015 5:18 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After years in development, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth title in the high-grossing Disney franchise, is finally unfurling its sails and kicking off production in Queensland, Australia. The pic, which will find Johnny Depp reprising the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, follows Pirates‘ most critically reviled installment and, as such, will likely determine whether the franchise still has a creative future.

Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki) are handling directorial duties on Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Jeff Nathanson (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal SkullCatch Me If You Can) penned the script. Disney just unveiled a new synopsis for the fivequel, promising another risky adventure on the high seas:

The fifth film in the franchise brings Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem down under for plenty of swashbuckling. Shooting will take place both on location in Queensland and in the Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast.

Depp returns to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, who in this film will be targeted by the villainous Captain Salazar (Bardem) as Sparrow searches for Poseidon’s trident in hopes of fending off “deadly ghost pirates,” per a press release from the studio.

The 10 Most Anticipated Movie Scores of 2015

7 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film scores are pretty ephemeral to a large chunk of the movie-going populace, where music isn’t noticeable unless a triumphant fanfare or sweeping ballad draws enough attention to itself. So if scoring is already the film industry’s unappreciated middle child, how silly is a list about ones that haven’t been released yet? Very silly. Oftentimes, composers don’t even sign with a project until well into production, so speculating on the best film music of 2015, like any year, forces one to work with what’s known. Sound on Sight will offer more in-depth analysis on the most buzzed about music as the year rolls on but for now, here are the ten movie scores I’m most excited to hear in 2015.

10. The WalkAlan Silvestri

Alan Silvestri’s last great score was for a TV show, and his last great film score was for one of the more forgettable Marvel entries. »

Filmax Pounces on Miami-selected ‘Innocent Killers’ (Exclusive)

29 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Barcelona-based Filmax, a Spanish production-distribution-sales force – especially in thrillers and horror fare from Spain’s seemingly bottomless well of new genre auteur talent – has acquired world sales rights to Gonzalo Bendala’s “Innocent Killers,” which it will also distribute domestically in Spain.

“Killers” will have its world premiere at March’s Miami Intl. Film Festival, playing in its Cinema 360º section.

Maxi Iglesias (“XP3D,” “Toledo”), Luis Fernandez (“XP3D,” “I Want You”) and Aura Garrido (“Stockholm,” “The Wishful Thinkers”) star in the murder imbroglio from Seville-based production house Aralan, which marks the feature directorial debut of Aralan partner Gonzalo Bendala.

“A suspenser, echoing elements of Hitchcock,” in the words of Aralan CEO Marta Velasco, “Killers” turns on a university student (Iglesias) who, in dire straits, suddenly receives an godsend offer of money – if he kills his psychology teacher (Miguel Angel Sola, “Night Runner”).

What makes the offer so singular »

Oscar Acting Races: 5 Box Office Musings

26 January 2015 8:42 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here to offer some random box office facts about the acting races. The big Oscar box office story continues to be American Sniper’s unprecedented success, so much so that Bradley Cooper garnered a shoutout last night at the SAG Awards despite not being nominated. I’m starting to feel the Best Picture category might not be the only three-way race as we wade deeper into Phase 2. Numbers and statistics junkie that I imagine myself to be, I was curious to see whether the past fifteen years’ worth of box office numbers in the acting categories could help us gleam anything about potential outcomes. Spoiler alert: not much, but enjoy the following random tidbits below. 

As it stands, Bradley, Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall (improbably, really) and Meryl Streep hold the title as the highest grossing nominees from their respective races. How might this help Bradley; well, let's take a »

However, should Birdman take tonight's top prize don't be surprised to see Birdman swing into that top spot in my Best Picture predictions. We'll see how things turn out...

Long delayed Jake Gyllenhaal film gets a trailer, now called Accidental Love

6 January 2015 9:09 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In what could be one of the strangest but hugely interesting releases of 2015, the first trailer for Accidental Love – a.k.a. Nailed a.k.a. Politics of Love – has just been released online..

A quick back story: back in 2008, the film was under the direction of acclaimed director David O. Russell (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook), who was also co-writing. However, during a turbulent production when filming was shut down four times due to money problems, the film was canned after financing fell through, causing the crew to work unpaid. Now Millennium, the company behind The Expendables, is releasing the film across VOD platforms and in cinema in the Us this February under its new title Accidental Love, with Stephen Greene (perhaps the new “Alan Smithee” pseudonym) now credited as the film’s director.

The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Howard Birdwell, a clueless congressman who comes in contact »
