World War Z Nabs a Composer, First Look at The Amazing Spider-Man's Lizard, Ghost Hunters Back In Court

30 December 2011 11:49 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It's one of the last news days of 2011, and just about everyone has already checked out for the year. You know what that means, right? A slow news day. Really slow. Slowest of the year. As a result we've dug through some headlines and scared up a couple of news bits that we normally wouldn't have paid any attention to. At least for the most part.

First out of the gate, according to the Film Music Reporter, Marco Beltrami has signed on to score the post-apocalyptic horror thriller World War Z. The movie is directed by Marc Forster (Finding Neverland, Monster’s Ball, Quantum of Solace) and stars Brad Pitt as a U.N. employee who scours the world, interviewing survivors of a zombie apocalypse. Mireille Enos, James Badge Dale, Bryan Cranston,mand David Morse are co-starring. Beltrami will also be handling the music for Paradise Lost.

Freddie Highmore talks Johnny Depp, stolen identities and The Art of Getting By...

23 December 2011 5:11 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

In 2004, Freddie Highmore landed a role that child stars the World over could only dream of; the role of 'Charlie Bucket' in 2005's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. While a competent actor thus far, it was Freddie's endearing rendition of Charlie that earned him Worldwide recognition, gaining the respect of his peers, the audience and the plaudits in the process.

Since then, the talented actor has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, in front of - and behind - the camera, and continues to please audiences with his heart-warming, authentic performances. In the run up to his latest release, The Art of Getting By, Freddie sat down with Shadowlocked and spoke openly about his career to date...

1. Freddie [Highmore], you’ve made a brilliant transition from child prodigy to adolescent actor. How have you found the transition?

It's odd really; it seems to have come very natural to me. »

Weinstein Company Turn Finding Neverland Into A Stage Musical

22 December 2011 1:20 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bob and Harvey Weinstein have had their names attached to tons of Oscar-nominated movies over the past couple of decades, but now they're looking to conquer an entire new medium: the stage. The New York Times reports that the Weinstein Company is developing a stage musical based on the movie Finding Neverland, which tells the story of the relationship between Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie and the family that inspired his most famous story. Broadway director/choreographer Rob Ashford (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) is directing the stage version of the 2004 film. The musical has actually been in the works for a while now, and was originally supposed to premiere at the La Jolla Playhouse last month, but it was delayed when the Weinsteins decided it still needed some work. Supposedly these changes involved getting Barrie together with Sylvia (played by Kate Winslet in the movie) »

But according to the New York Times, the Weinstein Company is moving ahead with plans to adapt the 2004 Johnny Depp film for the stage, with director Rob Ashford (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying) looking to stage a tryout production in Britain next fall before moving to London by the end of 2012.

Can Struggling Hollywood Ride Broadway's Coattails?

22 December 2011 7:54 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Broadway is enjoying a renaissance -- and Hollywood is hoping to get a piece of the action. With the motion picture box office in a slump, and Broadway on an upswing, an increasing number of film franchises are being transformed for the stage. In fact, theatrical productions of feature films including "The Notebook," "Rocky," "Austin Powers," "Ghost," "Finding Neverland," "Once," "Diner" and "The Goonies" are all in the works. It's easy to see why. Domestic box office attendance is at its lowest level in 16 years, and studios have struggled to fill seats throughout »

'Rock of Ages'

Release Date: June 1

Starring: Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Tom Cruise

The Scoop: One of the most popular and acclaimed Broadway musicals in recent memory, "Rock of Ages" tells the story of a couple of small-town dreamers who get caught up in the big-city spotlight -- and it tells that story using the transformative power of '80s rock. That's enough for us, but if you're somehow not sold, the film version of "Rock of Ages" also features a Who's Who of Hollywood stars, including Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Bryan Cranston and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Rock on!

'Snow White and the Huntsman'

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Art of Getting By’ Sleepwalks Through Coming-of-Age Clichés

16 December 2011 5:25 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Poor George Zinavoy. He’s been cursed with striking good looks, remarkable artistic talent, a dedicated mentor and a gorgeous woman who clearly desires to have sex with him. Thankfully, nothing appears to have gotten in the way of his stubborn pessimism, comfortable apathy and belief in the meaningless of existence. How can George be expected to care about his homework when he’s too busy contemplating his mortality?

For that matter, how can audiences be expected to care about such an unsympathetic, oddly soulless Holden Caulfield clone? He goes through the usual existential motions with all the urgency and conviction of a sleepwalker. As played by baby faced, moist-eyed Freddie Highmore, George registers as a mopey bore rather than a fatalist. Highmore’s genial sweetness lacks the raw edge and rebellious spirit that the character desperately needed in order to be the least bit credible.

Blu-ray Rating: 2.0/5.0

Michael Mann Retrospective - Public Enemies (2009)

14 December 2011 10:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Public Enemies, 2009.

Directed by Michael Mann.

Starring Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, Billy Cudrup, Stephen Dorff, Stephen Lang, Stephen Graham, Carey Mulligan, Giovanni Ribisi and Channing Tatum.

Synopsis:

Infamous American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd are targeted in a “war on crime” campaign by the fledgling FBI during the 1930s.

“I became fascinated with [John] Dillinger because of certain mysteries in his life,” explained filmmaker Michael Mann when talking about the central character in his period crime drama. “He was very bright, and great at doing what he did. He was regarded as one of the best bank robbers in American history.” The Indiana born gangster achieved folklore status during 1930s. “Dillinger at one point was the second most popular man in America after President Roosevelt; he was a national hero for a good reason. He was robbing the very institutions, the banks, which had »

Arthur Christmas makes its presents felt at the box office

6 December 2011 8:03 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Aardman's festive film knocks Twilight off the top of the tree while fending off Happy Feet Two and Hugo; and Margaret proves to be a one-screen wonder

The festive battle

Despite experiencing the first dip in takings in its run so far, Arthur Christmas nabs the top spot for the first time in its four weeks of release, knocking off The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1. Shrugging off the challenge of two major new releases targeting the same family audience – Happy Feet Two and Hugo – the festive Aardman animation fell a mild 25%. Its cumulative total of £11.48m is already more than five times its opening weekend gross (£2.11m), with plenty of life in it yet.

Arthur Christmas is following a very similar pattern to Disney's A Christmas Carol, which likewise released in early November, and stood at £11.33m after its fourth weekend, on its way to a total of more than £20m. »

Harvey Weinstein talks Oscars, Michelle Williams and the charm of “My Week With Marilyn” – Awards Alley

30 November 2011 2:15 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: “Pulp Fiction.” “The English Patient.” “Good Will Hunting.” “Shakespeare in Love.” “Chicago.” “The Aviator.” “Gangs of New York.” “The Reader.” “The King’s Speech.”

For decades, Harvey Weinstein’s name has been synonymous with the Academy Awards, and his influential fingerprints have been all over the Oscar season. Weinstein annually produces, distributes, supports and guides quality films from the silver screen to the Oscar podium. And while Weinstein has earned a reputation as being a master of the awards campaign, he’s also (first and foremost) a movie lover with an appreciation for our industry’s rich history.

That passion is on display in Michel Hazanavicius’ “The Artist” and Simon Curtis’ “My Week With Marilyn,” two films distributed by The Weinstein Company that are being touted for Oscar consideration this season.

Weinstein spoke with HollywoodNews.com the day after both pictures generated even more »

Johnny Depp Explains Why He Did Drugs, Gets Angry At Sell-Out Accusation

8 November 2011 6:31 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Johnny Depp spent the early part of his career making eclectic, unconventional and critically acclaimed films that rarely made a dent at the box office. The past decade or so, he's made eclectic, unconventional and (usually) critically acclaimed films that have banked billions. One would think that the financial boom is a good thing, but when it comes down to judgments of street cred and artistic integrity, things don't always quite make sense.

The man who played Hunter S. Thompson, Edward Scissorhands and Gilbert Grape is, all of a sudden, accused of selling out. And he's not happy about it.

"'Pirates' was a film I did just like any other one, I made that choice the same way I made every other choice," Depp tells the Guardian in a new interview. As it turns out, with the ensuing franchise's multi-billion dollar box office take, the film launched Depp into the »

Johnny Depp: 'I'm not ready to give up my American citizenship'

The Rum Diary star on his love of Europe, flying by private jet and why he can't stop smoking

In the weeks leading up to this interview, I began to think there must be some law that makes it illegal not to love Johnny Depp. Everyone melts into a puddle at the mention of his name. Men go even loopier than women – and the higher men rank on the cool-ometer of fame, the more in love with Depp they seem to be. Keith Richards, Brad Pitt, Marilyn Manson, the Gallagher brothers – the dudes all adore Johnny – while this month's GQ anoints him "the world's coolest actor". The director of Withnail & I was only talked out of retirement to make Depp's latest movie "because it was for Johnny", and recently Ricky Gervais was swooning in this paper: "His emails are like poetry. He's made of bohemia."

What can Depp do to inspire all of this? »

Machine Gun Preacher is the true story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who undergoes an astonishing transformation and finds an unexpected calling as the savior of hundreds of kidnapped and orphaned children.

Gerard Butler (300) delivers a searing performance as Childers, the impassioned founder of the Angels of East Africa rescue organization in Golden Globe-nominated director Marc Forster’s (Monster’s Ball, Finding Neverland) story of violence and redemption. Our good friend James Kleinmann managed to score an interview with Butler to discuss the film which is in UK cinemas now.
