Documentary filmmaker seeks Kickstarter funds ... for Oscar race

7 August 2013 3:26 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

You’ve heard of directors using crowdsourced funding to help make a film. Here’s one trying to Kickstart his movie into the Oscar race.

Steven Charles Jaffe, the director of Gahan Wilson: Born Dead, Still Weird, is hoping to raise about $50,000 on Kickstarter.com to qualify for the Academy Awards by renting screens in New York and Los Angeles for the requisite one-week theatrical run, plus local advertising buys.

The movie explores the life of the macabre cartoonist whose ghoulishly funny panels have appeared regularly in The New Yorker and Playboy, with interviews from admirers such as Stephen Colbert, »

The 15 Worst Accents in Movies Ever

8 July 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

So many actors have tried, and so many actors have failed. Accents have long proven to be one of the hardest things to hone when it comes to a film role. While Irish seems to be the most challenging of dialects to lock down, there are also other accents — even American — that have yet to be mastered in cinema.

Playing a Serbian posing as a Bosnian in the upcoming "Killing Season," John Travolta is going a rare route. It's debatable whether he can pull it off, but he doesn't have to worry about sounding all sorts of wrong if he's in the company of these actors with the worst movie accents.

15. Gabourey Sidibe, 'Tower Heist' (2011)

Playing a maid with a knack for cracking safes, Sidibe didn't initially plan on her character having a Jamaican accent. But "Tower Heist" director Brett Ratner requested it, and even with the use of a dialect coach, »

Tom Hardy's 'Splinter Cell' movie gains Basil Iwanyk as director

10 June 2013 5:40 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Ubisoft and New Regency have revealed the person who will helm the upcoming adaptation of the video game "Splinter Cell": longtime producer Basil Iwanyk. This will be Iwanyk's directorial debut.

Though Iwanyk is new to directing, he's a veteran of Hollywood. Iwanyk is best known for being a producer behind projects ranging from "K-19: The Widowmaker" and "The Expendables" to "The Town" and "Clash of the Titans." He's behind the upcoming movies "Seventh Son" and "Gods of Egypt." This will be the first video game adaptation Iwanyk is involved in, though he's worked on projects similar in tone to "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell" in the past.

Deadline broke the news of Iwanyk's involvement. Eric Warren Singer is writing the script for "Splinter Cell." The film will star Tom Hardy as leading man Sam Fisher. The movie does not yet have a release date. »

Will Smith and 'After Earth': Minor speedbump or major misstep?

4 June 2013 6:45 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

You recognize the warning from the fine-print at the bottom of every financial investment mailing you’ve ever received: “Past performance is no guarantee of future results.”

It applies to Hollywood, too. Tom Hanks made The Terminal, Harrison Ford did K-19: The Widowmaker, and Julia Roberts starred in The Mexican (a romantic comedy with Brad Pitt!) — three disappointments that featured huge stars in vehicles tailor-made for their proven brand of character. No one is immune to an inevitable hiccup, and last weekend, it was Will Smith’s turn.

After Earth, Smith’s futuristic science-fiction adventure, was pronounced a flop after »

Baseball Biopic Overperforming: Will Easily Top Domestic Weekend B.O. Chart

13 April 2013 2:28 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Baseball Biopic Surpassing Expectations: Will Easily Top Domestic B.O. Chart This Weekend Written and directed by Academy Award winner Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential screenwriter), and starring Chadwick Boseman as pioneering black baseball player Jackie Robinson and veteran Harrison Ford as the Brooklyn Dodgers' team executive Branch Rickey, the biopic 42 was the no. 1 movie at Friday's domestic box office; it'll surely be the weekend's top film, too. As per early, rough estimates found on the web site Deadline.com, the period drama will be the only movie grossing more than $20 million at the domestic box office. (See below more information about Scary Movie 5 and last weekend's holdovers.) (Pictured above are an unrecognizable Ford as the Brooklyn Dodgers' team executive Branch Rickey and Boseman wearing Robinson's baseball uniform.) The 42 movie brought in an estiamted $8.5 million at 3,003 U.S. and Canada venues on Friday (April 12) and by Sunday evening may possibly »

Doctor Who series 7: Cold War spoiler-free review

10 April 2013 7:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Simon Brew 10 Apr 2013 - 14:53

A classic foe returns to Doctor Who, in the Mark Gatiss-penned Cold War. Here's our spoiler-free review...

"It never rains, but it pours"

I used to have a theory, until Harrison Ford came and sullied things slightly. And it was this: there's no such thing as a bad film set on a submarine. Even Down Periscope, the Kelsey Grammer-headlined spoof of sorts, worked better than it felt it should have done. I never got far enough past Harrison Ford's Russian accent in K-19: The Widowmaker to call it either way though.

Following the divisive The Rings Of Akhaten, then, this week's Doctor Who heads underwater. It's toned down the singing (although not entirely, but it's not what you think), and headed to colder comforts. And while it's not a spectacular episode, Cold War does little to sully my academically non-proven theory. »

The Ya Fantasy Craze Continues as ‘Shadow and Bone’ Finds a Screenwriter

13 February 2013 7:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Here’s a piece of writing advice: write a really great Young Adult fantasy novel right now. Don’t wait another second. Who knows if we’re in the middle of a long-term trend or the waning days. So get to it. Also, it might help if you can get it to Harry Potter producer David Heyman. He’s the man behind the big screen adaptation of what DreamWorks is hoping will be the next big thing in Ya filmmaking — “Shadow and Bone” from author Leigh Bardugo. The story focuses on a kind of magical version of Russia where the people are under siege by dark forces who prefer human meat for dinner. Fortunately for the public at large, a young woman discovers she has the power to manipulate light and save her people from ruin. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project (for which rights were secured back in September) has taken the next step by »

12 February 2013 4:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Screenwriter Christopher Kyle has signed on to write the screenplay adaptation for Shadow and Bone, based on Leigh Bardugo's novel.

We reported back in September that DreamWorks acquired the rights to this novel, and its upcoming sequels. The story centers on a young woman, whose land was attacked by mysterious creatures known as the Shadow Fold. She must learn to control her new powers, which may make the difference in her country's war against these foul entities.

David Heyman (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2) and Jeffrey Clifford (Up in the Air) are producing the adaptation for DreamWorks, which has not found a director at this time. The first book, Shadow and Bone, was published in June. The second book Siege and Storm will be published in June 2013, with the final installment arriving in the summer of 2014.

Strong Showing For 'A Haunted House'

13 January 2013 11:19 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

After weeks of controversy in limited release, Sony’s $40 million Osama Bin Laden assassination film, Zero Dark Thirty, shot into first place with $24.0 million this weekend following five Oscar nominations (though not one for director Kathryn Bigelow) and an expansion from 60 to 2,937 theaters. After four weekends, the well-reviewed drama has earned $29.5 million total, and given its omnipresence during awards season, there’s no telling how high it could ultimately climb. $100 million is certainly not out of the question.

Zero Dark Thirty, which earned an “A-” CinemaScore, finished in the same range as Act of Valor, another recent Navy Seal film, which garnered $24.5 million in its opening weekend in February 2012. The film is already far bigger than Kathryn Bigelow’s last directorial effort, The Hurt Locker, which found $17.7 million in 2009, and it will easily surpass both K-19: The Widowmaker ($35.2 million) and Point Break ($43.2 million) as the biggest hit of her career. »

Movie Review: 'Zero Dark Thirty'

11 January 2013 5:45 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Zero Dark Thirty

Starring Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chander

Directed by Kathryn Bigelow

Rated R

 

Kathryn Bigelow’s career, prior to the release of her Oscar winning film The Hurt Locker, was pretty uninspiring and well, mediocre.  Sure she made the guilty pleasure known as Point Break, but she also made K-19: The Widowmaker...yeah not great.  But it was with The Hurt Locker that she found a subject that brought out something different in her filmmaking:  The war on terror.   It was a great film.  A film that captured a side of a soldier and of a war that sometimes gets little notice.   Well, seeing that her work in that area was unfinished, she comes back with Zero Dark Thirty, whose subject matter was the very reason why we started waging a war in the Middle East: Osama bin Laden.  

 Let me start off by saying that one »

A director under fire

11 January 2013 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Hurt Locker made Kathryn Bigelow the first woman to win a best director Oscar. But some say her new thriller, Zero Dark Thirty, about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, endorses torture

When Osama bin Laden was killed by Us special forces two years ago, Kathryn Bigelow was deep in preparations for a movie about the failure to capture him during the early stages of the war in Afghanistan. The script, by Mark Boal, was more or less finished; they had scouted locations in Kazakhstan and were preparing to helicopter into Bagram and Jalalabad to see for themselves the terrain they'd be trying to replicate. When news of the death came in, it blew apart the project in such a way, Bigelow says, that any frustration was eclipsed by a sense of being "propelled by history". In fact, she says, "I think our first thought was, 'Well, at least we have a third act. »

Zero Dark Thirty Review

11 January 2013 10:16 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

[This is a re-post of my review from December when Zero Dark Thirty opened in limited release.  The film opens today in wide release.] Kathryn Bigelow's previous film, The Hurt Locker, opened with the statement, "war is a drug." Like The Hurt Locker and her earlier film K-19: The Widowmaker, Bigelow's new picture, Zero Dark Thirty, deals with a deadly obsession created in wartime. But unlike Hurt Locker and K-19, Zero Dark Thirty exists on a different battlefield—one of intelligence gathering, subterfuge, shady tactics, and misinformation. It's a battlefield that is arguably more lethal than what we've seen before. It's not where we place our troops. It's where we place our citizens, and every moment in a post-9/11 world is a time bomb waiting to explode. In this world, Bigelow has crafted a thrilling and disturbing tale about how deeply an obsession can warp an individual, and how far we're willing to go for the illusion of safety. The film opens on a black screen as we're forced to listen to the »

The films of Kathryn Bigelow

8 January 2013 8:38 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Challenging stereotypes and conventions for nearly 30 years, Kathryn Bigelow is one of the most successful female directors to date. While most female filmmakers have risen to power by directing films that appeal to women, Bigelow has broken the mould with challenging and engaging topics, and largely directing men in high-adrenalin action films, such as Point Break and Strange Days making her an exception to the rule. The American film director, producer and screenwriter, received high critical acclaim for her 2008 film The Hurt Locker, including two Oscars for Best Film and Best Director – making her the only woman to ever win this prize in the 84 years of the Academy’s history.

In honour of her latest film, the highly anticipated Zero Dark Thirty, about the decade long hunt for Osama Bin Laden, we have compiled a list of Kathryn Bigelow’s films over the years, showing what it is that makes »
