In Hollywood, studio executives always seem to be falling over themselves in an attempt to lay claim to the next big thing — be it a financially sound franchise-starter or an eye-catching adaptation. For Fox, though, the company has seemingly acquired the latter property, after the studio struck a six-figure deal to bring Arman Baltazar’s three-part children’s series, Timeless, to the silver screen.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rio and Ice Age helmer Carlos Saldanha is currently on board to direct with Ridley Scott acting as producer. Fox has described its vision for Timeless as a blend of live-action and CG in the vein of Avatar — now we know why the company was so quick in snapping up those rights.
Regardless, Baltazer’s family-friendly tale orbits around a band of children from four different periods in history — Victorian England, the 1920s and 80s, along with the modern day. Not only that, »

Fox has hired veteran animation director Carlos Saldanha to helm sci-fi fantasy movie “Timeless” as a possible franchise starter.
The project, based on the upcoming three-book series from Armand Baltazar, will be a live-action CG adaptation. Producers are Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer of Scott Free Productions, Steve Tzirlin, Brooklyn Weaver of Energy Entertainment and Saldhana through his BottleCap Prods.
The book series, to be published by HarperCollins, occurs in Chicago after a “time collision” eliminates the barriers between the past, present and future. The story follows a boy and his friends who rescue his father from a Roman general.

"Ice Age" and "Rio" director Carlos Saldanha is set to take the helm of 20th Century Fox's "Timeless," a live-action and CG animated combination film adaptation of former Pixar artist Armand Baltazar's upcoming children's book trilogy.
The story is set in Chicago when a time implosion brings people and creatures from the past, present and future together. A boy sets out with his friends from different time periods to rescue his father who has been captured by a Roman general.

Less than a week after former Pixar artist Armand Baltazar closed a deal for his debut three-book children’s series Timeless, the movie rights have been picked up by Fox. Carlos Saldanha, the director of the animated Rio and Ice Age movies, is attached to direct what would be a live-action/CG adaptation. Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer of Scott Free Productions and Steve Tzirlin are producing along with Brooklyn Weaver. Maresa Pullman, who runs Saldanha's BottleCap Productions, will executive produce. Sources peg the deal in the mid-six-figures range. The story is set in Chicago when

The long-in-the-works "Angry Birds" movie is getting ready to take flight, and it's got an all-star comedy cast to breathe life into its animalistic projectiles.
Sony Pictures and Rovio announced this week that Peter Dinklage, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader, Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, and Danny McBride will lead the feature adaptation of the popular smartphone game. And the impressive ensemble doesn't stop there: Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Cristela Alonzo, Jillian Bell, Danielle Brooks, Latin musician Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (aka Ian Andrew Hecox and Anthony Padilla) will also voice characters in the movie.
Unsurprisingly, filmmakers were excited about the star-studded group that they nabbed for the flick.
"I'm extremely proud of this cast," said producer John Cohen in a statement. "Not only do we have Jason, Josh, Danny, Bill, Maya, and Peter bringing these characters to life, but they're surrounded by an »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best.
On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Snowpiercer is coming to Blu-Ray and DVD on October 21st, and if there is one movie to make sure is on your home video release radar, this is it. You’ve probably heard quite a bit about this one, and it’s one of the oddest and, if the critical consensus can be believed, most awesome sci-fi releases in quite a while.
Odd, because it pushes the limits of indie films, and their theatrical releases and marketing efforts. Though you’ve likely heard of the film, it wouldn’t have taken that much effort to avoid doing so, and you may not have even had much opportunity to catch it in theaters. Even with the recent upswing in recognizable names in films that are indie, indie-eque, microbudget, or whatever else, a tense sci-fi effort with Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, and more still seems like it ought »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

It suffered a 63% box office drop in its second week of cinematic release. It was nominated for eleven Golden Raspberry Awards, winning one. It has been singled out as a source of massive regret for much of its cast. It effectively ended two A-list film careers, signaled the decline of Hollywood’s most celebrated guilty pleasure strongman, and doomed its helmsman to a pantheon of lingering disgrace. It torpedoed a multimillion dollar franchise, wiped out two green-lit blockbusters and put one of pop culture’s biggest names into the dark for eight years. It is often cited as one of the worst movies ever made, and was crowned number one by Empire. Years later, its director would be compelled to actually apologize for it. When you collect your wits at last and begin to look at the mess with something approaching rationalization, you will be hard pressed to find a »

Available now on VOD is director Bong Joon ho's blistering sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer. I caught the film earlier today and it's an absolute tour de force brimming with action and incisive commentary. Set aboard a perpetually moving train that protects Earth's remaining population from a second Ice Age, the pic sees Chris Evans lead a revolt that seeks to move the have nots from the squeamish conditions of the train's tail to the lavish amenities of its head. What ensues is a premium visceral experience that may lack subtlety but never fails to excite and impress. Similar to how each floor presents its own unique set of challenges and incredible action opportunities in Gareth Evans' The Raid, each station on Bong Joon ho's Snowpiercer contains its own form of beautifully orchestrated chaos that is a sight to behold albeit not for the weak of stomach. If any of the »

Tim Sommer, rock raconteur extraordinaire, recently wrote a playlist for Tim Broun's blog Stupefaction. (#1 choice shown above.) Mr. Sommer has lately been writing a daily column in The Brooklyn Bugle (motto: "On the Web because paper is expensive") that immediately became the one thing that I read every day, just so I can enjoy his combination of cultural erudition and lunatic whimsy. In one of his Bugle columns he wrote about making the list. And in that article he posited other approaches/lists that I found myself wishing he had made as well. But he's undoubtedly got better things to do with his time. I apparently do not, however (okay, I do, I just have poor impulse control), and made my own lists based on his criteria.
And here they are. I could have gone thirty deep on each of these lists just as he did on Stupefaction (well, maybe »
