Roger Deakins To Lens "Blade Runner 2"

20 May 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Arguably the best cinematographer in the business right now, Roger Deakins, has come onboard in that role on the upcoming "Blade Runner" sequel at Alcon Entertainment.

Deakins, whose work includes "Skyfall," "No Country for Old Men," "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," "Unbroken," "A Beautiful Mind" and "Jarhead," will re-team with the movie's director Denis Villeneuve following their previous collaborations on both "Prisoners" and the upcoming "Sicario".

Filming on the follow-up to the iconic Ridley Scott classic is slated to begin next Summer with Harrison Ford reprising his role of Rick Deckard, while Ryan Gosling has also been linked to the project.

Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have written the screenplay.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Corporate Greed Is Bad for Your Health and for the Health of Democracy

13 May 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Insider' movie: Al Pacino and Russell Crowe 'The Insider' movie: 1999 exposé of CBS news show barks, but doesn't bite Michael Mann's 1999 movie The Insider quote exchange: "It's old news. ... We'll be ok," says Don Hewitt (Philip Baker Hall), the creator of the CBS news show 60 Minutes. "These things have a half-life of 15 minutes." "No, that's fame," replies 60 Minutes anchor Mike Wallace (Christopher Plummer). "Fame has a 15-minute half-life. Infamy lasts a little longer." The infamous "things" referred to by Hewitt and Wallace are the series of scandals that erupted in early 1996, when it was revealed that CBS had refused to air an interview with a tobacco company whistleblower because the network feared the (financial) consequences. What Freedom of the Press? Based on Marie Brenner's Vanity Fair article about the events that led up to that embarrassing – and disturbing – incident, The Insider tells the story of scientist Jeffrey Wigand »

Time Machine: Bachchan and Rai - Bollywood King and Queen on Hollywood Red Carpet

Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai at the Oscars Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai on the Academy Awards' Red Carpet Pictured above are Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, which took place on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Two years ago, an Anglo-Indian-American co-production, Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire became not only one of the season's biggest sleeper hits, but also the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner. Dev Patel and Freida Pinto starred. Curiously, some have complained that Slumdog Millionaire was just a less interesting rehash of higher-quality Bollywood musicals and dramas that have received relatively little play outside South Asian communities around the globe. Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai movies The son of Indian cinema legend Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan has been featured in nearly 50 films. Among them are: Dhoom (2004).

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Why 2001 was the best year in film history

28 April 2015 12:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. "Mulholland Drive." "Donnie Darko." "Spirited Away." "Ghost World." "The Royal Tenenbaums." "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring." "Wet Hot American Summer." "Pulse." "Hedwig and the Angry Inch." If you're not stunned by the sheer variety of greatness in the above list of films, you probably won't be on board with my argument for 2001 as the greatest year in movie history. And if you're puzzled by the exclusion of "A Beautiful Mind," then you might as well stop reading now. "A Beautiful Mind," of course, won Best Picture at the Oscars the following year, an honor that felt undeserved at the time and positively baffles in hindsight. The Ron Howard-directed drama was an ephemeral triumph, the kind of middle-of-the-road Hollywood »

Russell Crowe Hopes to Reconcile With Wife Danielle Spencer: "I Didn't Get Married to Get Divorced"—Watch Now!

24 April 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

They have been separated since 2012, but Russell Crowe isn't giving up hope that he and estranged wife Danielle Spencer will get back together. They never legally divorced, so the Gladiator star is praying that it will work out in the end. While appearing on CBS This Morning, Crowe opened up to Charlie Rose about the state of his marriage and how not wearing a wedding ring has left him feeling unsure of himself. "I was so proud to wear that ring, Charlie," he said. "I don't feel balanced." After nine years of marriage and two kids together, it's no wonder the A Beautiful Mind actor still feels "connected" to his wife. Although he isn't sure of what's to come for »

Exclusive Portrait: Russell Crowe in Chicago for ‘The Water Diviner’

23 April 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Actor and Oscar Winner Russell Crowe, known for films such as “L.A. Confidential,” “Gladiator,” “A Beautiful Mind,” “Cinderella Man,” “Les Miserables” and “Man of Steel,” breaks out in his directorial debut and also stars in “The Water Diviner,” a story of war and his native Australia.

The film centers on Crowe as Connor, an Australian farmer who sends his three sons to World War One in 1915. The fate of the boys is the driver for the story, that takes Crowe’s character into former war zones and an exotic land. Filled with beautiful imagery under his direction, the movie – adapted from a novel – is also an homage to his native Australia, and the sacrifices that families make in times of war. “The Water Diviner” opens wide on April 24th, 2015.

Photographer Joe Arce of HollywoodChicago.com was at the Red Carpet for the Chicago premiere of “The Water Diviner, »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

STX Entertainment Appoints Quartet of Marketing Veterans

14 April 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marketing has been a key selling point of Stx Entertainment.

The newly launched studio plans to break through the clutter and shoulder out more established players by selling its pictures in a more innovative fashion. To that end, it has announced a lineup of marketing executives. The quartet includes marketing and strategic communications veteran Terry Curtin, creative advertising and branding executive Keri Moore, media and marketing executive Amy Elkins, and global digital marketing executive Andrew Runyon. They will report to theatrical marketing president Jack Pan.

Marketing is clearly key for Stx founder Robert Simonds. He has tapped Oren Aviv, a former marketing exec at Disney and Fox, as president and chief content officer, as well as Adam Fogelson, the former Universal Pictures chief who rose through the marketing ranks, to oversee the film slate.

Stx Entertainment is focused on mid-budget movies, the kind of pictures that major studios have opted »

Actors-turned-directors: The good, the bad and the unwatchable

11 April 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?

We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.

The career-changers

Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.

The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki joins The Ring sequel, Rings

2 April 2015 1:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With filming now underway on Paramount Pictures’ The Ring sequel, simply called Rings, news has reached us that The Big Bang Theory star Johnny Galecki has been added to the cast of the film.

Reports from Deadline suggest that Galecki will play a “pleasure seeking professor named Gabriel who serves as a mentor to Alex Roe and Matilda Lutz’s characters.”

Roe plays Holt, a young man who begins to become distant from his girlfriend, Julia (Lutz) after watching the infamous deadly videotape the series is known for.

The American remake and subsequent sequel (The Ring and The Ring Two) of Hideo Nakata’s 1998 horror-thriller were released in 2002 and 2005 respectively, and told the now infamous story of a videotape of ghoulish images that causes anyone who watches it to die seven days later.

F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall), is directing the new film with Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman »

Transformers Getting Lots More Sequels and Spin-Offs

28 March 2015 5:10 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Despite not being loved by critics, the "Transformers" franchise has been very lucrative, with the last two films grossing over $1 billion worldwide each. This is why Paramount Pictures has decided to expand the universe to include a bunch more sequels and spin-offs. Deadline is reporting that the studio hired Akiva Goldsman to work with director Michael Bay, executive producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a "writer's room" to come up with ideas for future films. Even though Goldsman is an Oscar-winning writer of "A Beautiful Mind" and many other films, it seems that he won't actually write any scripts. Instead, he will take on an oversight role to select writers and guide the movies they'll write. This strategy has become more and more common in Hollywood. 20th Century Fox has done this for the next three "Avatar" films, and Disney has done this for its superhero »

Transformers movie universe planned by Paramount

27 March 2015 3:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paramount wants to borrow the Star Wars model, as it seeks to expand the Transformers movie universe with new sequels and spin-offs.

With Transformers: Age Of Extinction being the highest grossing film on the planet in 2014, it's unsurprising that Paramount is already pressing ahead with plans for Transformers 5. It's unclear yet whether Michael Bay will return to direct that one, given that he's currently working on drama 13 Hours (although he slotted Pain & Gain in between the last two Transformers movies). But whether he does or doesn't, you can expect lots more Transformers in the years ahead.

That's because - yes! - plans are afoot for a Transformers movie universe, with a series of spin-off films being planned.

Akiva Goldsman, the writer of A Beautiful Mind, Batman & Robin and I Am Legend, is to work to set up a "writer's room", reports Deadline. He'll be doing this in conjunction with Michael Bay, »

Paramount Planning Multi-Part 'Transformers' Sequel and Spin-Offs

27 March 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We've known for awhile that more Transformers sequels were on the way, especially since Mark Wahlberg is signed for multiple movies, and Transformers: Age of Extinction was meant to be the start of a new trilogy. But now it sounds like Paramount may have even grander plans for the toy-based franchise. Deadline reveals that the studio is in talks with Akiva Goldsman to shepherd a multi-part sequel to continue the Transformers franchise, as well as potential spin-offs based on Hasbro's toyline. Basically, Paramount seems anxious to create their own Marvel-esque universe for the Transformers. More below! Goldsman would work with director Michael Bay, executive producer Steven Spielberg and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura to organize a writer's room or brain trust to hatch ideas for the franchise to expand and continue. And while Goldsman has written several screenplays himself, including the Oscar-winning A Beautiful Mind, it doesn't sound like he'll write and of these movies himself. »
