The Nostalgia Files: ‘Galaxy Quest’ (1999)

19 July 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Galaxy Quest

Written by David Howard and Robert Gordon

Directed by Dean Parisot

USA, 1999

“Never give up. Never surrender.” Truer words have never been spoken. In 1999, the science fiction genre was shaken up a bit by a movie so smart and so funny that no other film has managed to duplicate its greatness ever since. That film is Galaxy Quest, a hilarious satire of all things sci-fi, most specifically the Star Trek franchise. Galaxy Quest isn’t simply a parody of Star Trek, though. It’s a parody of a show within a movie that bears an extraordinary resemblance to Star Trek, and this goofy send-up is the perfect recipe for intelligent humor, dazzling special effects, and pure movie magic.

The film follows a group of semi-washed up actors who starred in Galaxy Quest, a Trek-esque TV show from the early 1980s.Led by Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen), this band »

Watch: Two International Trailers for 'Rio, I Love You' Anthology

15 July 2014 10:38 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following World Cup fever, Brazil is poised to get even more attention, at least internationally, with the romantic anthology Rio, I Love You, inspired by the previous projects Paris, je t'aime and New York, I Love You. As one would expect, two trailers showcase a charming collection of short stories, all set in some gorgeous and interesting locales in the South American setting, and it looks much better than the animated film which shares its title with the city as well. Directors like Fernando Meirelles (City of God), John Turturro (Fading Gigolo) and Jose Padilha (RoboCop) all directed segments, and it looks wonderful. Here's two international trailers for the anthology Rio, I Love You from YouTube (via The Film Stage): Rio, I Love You is an anthology of short stories following in the same footsteps as New York, I Love You and Paris, je t'aime. The film features shorts »

20th Century Fox Unit Explores South Korea Theme Park

14 July 2014 10:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products is poised to sign an agreement to discuss plans to build a new Fox World theme park in South Korea.

The proposed park is a venture involving Village Roadshow and the province of South Gyeongsang and will be part of a larger development known as the Undong Entertainment Complex.

South Gyeongsang is the province in south eastern South Korea that contains the major port cities of Busan and Ulsan.

Fox World Korea is the second Fox World park to be initiated by 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

Construction in Malaysia began in December last year on a park that will feature attractions based on properties including “Ice Age,” “Rio,” “Alien vs Predator,” “Planet of the Apes” and “Night At The Museum.”

A signing ceremony of the agreements will take place in Seoul on Wednesday.

Weekend Report: 'Apes' Goes Bananas

13 July 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

With strong reviews and goodwill from its well-liked predecessor, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes easily ruled the domestic box office this weekend.Overall, though, it was another slow weekend at U.S. movie theaters: the Top 12 earned $138.6 million, which is down 26 percent from the same weekend last year.Debuting at 3,967 theaters, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes earned $72.6 million this weekend. That's a 33 percent improvement over the last movie's $54.8 million opening, and is also noticeably higher than last Summer's World War Z ($66.4 million). Of course, it's way off from the $90-million level that some other Summer movies have reached, though the Apes brand is obviously not as popular as Transformers, Spider-Man or X-Men.The movie's strong debut can be attributed to a few factors. First, 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes was well-received by moviegoers, and has connected with many more during its post-theatrical run. »

Exclusive Video Interview: Ed Harris Talks Snowpiercer and Creepshow

27 June 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This week, South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho’s latest film, Snowpiercer, comes roaring into theaters courtesy of The Weinstein Company. During a recent press day, we spoke with Harris about his approach to the role of Wilford- a character who doesn’t necessarily get a lot of screen time, but has a huge hand in many of the film’s major turning points. Also, because this writer is a huge Creepshow fan and anyone who has seen the film knows just how amazing and memorable Harris’ performance was in the Father’s Day segment, we got Harris to quickly chat about the smooth dance moves he busted out while shooting the 1982 horror classic.

Set in the post-apocalyptic future where the Earth has entered into a new Ice Age and the only survivors left reside on a perpetual-motion train, also named Snowpiercer, the very fate of humanity hangs in the balance once a revolution breaks out. »

Remembering the Best and Worst of ABC’s Tgif Lineup

27 June 2014 1:11 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In fall 1993, a coming-of-age comedy called “Boy Meets World” premiered on ABC’s “Tgif” Friday night lineup; 21 years later, its sequel series, “Girl Meets World,” is debuting on the Disney Channel with many of the original cast members reprising their roles for a new generation.

Few could have anticipated the enduring popularity of the family sitcom — which starred Ben Savage as Cornelius “Cory” Matthews and Danielle Fishel as his first love and eventual wife, Topanga Lawrence — but ABC’s Tgif block was responsible for a number of iconic comedies during its initial run between 1989 and 2000, many of which still live on in syndication today. And, as with all networks, the roster was also responsible for some spectacular trainwrecks, with concepts so surreal, you’d think a kid pitched them while on a sugar high.

Review: Snowpiercer

27 June 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

There was a fair amount of controversy over Snowpiercer long before the U.S. release was decided. Rumors surfaced several months ago that The Weinstein Company wanted to aim for a wide release, but only if the film was trimmed by 20 minutes. South Korean director Bong Joon-ho (The Host, Mother) wasn't especially interested in altering his English-language debut in order to please a more mainstream audience. After a rather public spat, his 125-minute cut stands, although the film is now restricted to a limited release domestically. This science-fiction oddity is based on the acclaimed French graphic novel Le Transperceneige.

The story takes us into a frighteningly frozen future where the only people left on Earth are circling the planet on a powerful, self-sustaining train where the passengers are separate and far from equal. An experiment to try and stop the effects of global warming failed and forced the entire planet »

Review: Snowpiercer, A Singular And Breathtaking Cinematic Experience

26 June 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Cinema is a medium of motion and if anyone understands this, it appears to be Bong Joon-ho, whose visionary new work is a demented and stunning thrillride. In his first production outside his native South Korea, Bong has delivered his most ambitious project yet, and proves more than capable of handling an international, multilingual cast and a large budget. When a global warming solution backfires, the Earth is enveloped in a new Ice Age which almost annihilates the human race. The few thousand survivors live aboard a lone train that perpetually circumnavigates the otherwise dead planet. The train's creator, Wilford, leads from the engine at the front, while the tail is inhabited by low class citizens. Each day they are subjected to humiliating atrocities, and...

9 Maps That Visualize 12,000 Years Of Game Of Thrones History

26 June 2014 9:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Whether you came into the world of Westeros via HBO or through a friend of a friend hawking George Rr Martin's novels the way the media portrays drug pushers, you know there's a lot going on behind the scenes. Martin is a master of realizing history doesn't happen in a vacuum, that every decision made by a person is just the latest link in a long line of churning froth that is shifting political alliances and personal slights. With that in mind it can be difficult to keep the history of 'Game of Thrones' straight. After all, there is over twelve millennia worth of house lineages mixed with mythology and misinformation...and that's just in the Seven Kingdoms. Luckily Redditor hotbrownDoubleDown realized we needed a simplistic — and spoiler free — timeline. So pick your poison. Would you like to know more about the Age of Heroes? Or does your »

After the Crash, Grim Snowpiercer and Its Trains Keep Grinding Along

24 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

It's kind of happy-sad, like watching a kid you knew as a toddler graduate from high school: Chris Evans, seemingly destined to be a boy forever, is now officially a grown-up. In Bong Joon-ho's futuristic snowbummer Snowpiercer, the Korean director's first English-language film, Evans plays the leader of a group of have-nots who rebel against a bunch of haves, all stuck together on a high-speed train that perpetually circles the Earth, which a new Ice Age has rendered uninhabitable. Looking gaunt and bony beneath his drab, baggy threads, a knit cap pulled low on his brow, Edge-style, Evans is more like a cheerless hobo than an overgrown bro. Is that really a good thing?

Evans, a charming and rambunctious actor, should be allowed to grow up; no one can play Captain Amer »

Script Matters: ‘Snowpiercer’ builds a new kind of prison

22 June 2014 7:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

South Korean filmmaker, Joon-ho Bong, has never been afraid of mixing genres.  In his latest and most challenging film to date, Snowpiercer, Bong mixes action, sci-fi and satire to create a delightfully twisted prison break story.  Snowpiercer owes much of its effectiveness to an ingenious script that uses 3 discrete acts to effortlessly shift its tone and genre.  The first act establishes the prison; delineating the rules, hierarchy and surreal conditions.  The second act takes us through the prison; peeling away each layer of corruption with frenzied action and violence.  Finally, the third act deconstructs the prison; exposing the true face of tyranny and the rationale behind it.  It’s an audacious script that warrants deeper consideration.

The key to any good prison break movie is establishing the prison as its own character.  Whether it’s the evil warden’s twisted idea of justice or the intricate kingdoms built by the inmates, »

Snowpiercer review: A new Blade Runner? - Edinburgh Film Festival 2014

21 June 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Joon-ho Bong; Screenwriters: Joon-ho Bong, Kelly Masterson; Starring: Chris Evans, Kang-ho Song, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Luke Pasqualino, Octavia Spencer, Ewen Bremner; Running time: 126 mins; Certificate: Tbc

Echoing the dystopian brilliance of Blade Runner and Brazil and beset by remarkably similar studio wrangling over the final cut, Snowpiercer is an audacious, immersive and nightmarish masterpiece. The frankly bonkers concept of society encompassed on one train carrying the last vestiges of the human race is expertly executed with striking visuals, engaging performances and a satirical quality that recalls Terry Gilliam at his peak.

Based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige, the extraordinary American-South Korean co-production unfolds on a train in which the poor occupants live in squalid, claustrophobic conditions. They live on crushed insects and acts of insurgency often result in limbs being hacked off by the authorities. That puts the rush hour chaos on London Underground into some perspective. »

Rumor: Universal Delayed Bourne 5 So That Matt Damon Can Return

20 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: Bourne 5 producer Frank Marshall has dismissed this rumor, stating:

“It’s simply not true. [Director] Justin Lin is working with Andrew Baldwin on an Aaron Cross script/story that they pitched us a few months ago. I talk to Justin all the time and the script is not ready. It’s a summer movie, and if we don’t start pre-production now, we can’t make next summer. Therefore, it’s a wise decision to move to 2016.”

Sorry, Bourne fans. It looks like rumors of Damon’s return were groundless after all.

Original Post:

More than a few of us were surprised when Universal bumped its summer tentpole, unofficially titled Bourne 5, almost a full year, from August of 2015 to July of 2016. The reasons given included that a script (being rewritten by Andrew Baldwin) wasn’t yet finalized and that Nwa biopic Straight Outta Compton was demanding a summer release date. »

Matt Damon Rumoured to Return as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Legacy Sequel

20 June 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Since before Jeremy Renner was even chosen to play Aaron Cross in a Bourne movie without Jason Bourne back in 2012, rumours that Matt Damon would return to the role after The Bourne Ultimatum have been almost non-stop, especially after the mostly tepid critical response to The Bourne Legacy.

Damon has said again and again that the only way he would play Bourne again would be if it was with Paul Greengrass as director, but something has obviously changed as Latino-Review are now reporting that the reason Bourne 5 has been pushed back to 2016 is because the actor will return for director Justin Lin.

What made Damon change his mind is unclear, but a few recent misfires at the box office could have something to do with it. The Bourne Legacy earned significantly less than the Bourne movie which preceded it too, so having Cross team with with the titular character would »
