Icons of Fright Interview with 7 Minutes Director Jay Martin!

2 July 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Having started his career as both a music video director (his video for Atreyu’s “Ex’s and Oh’s” is a fave of mine) and a storyboard artist on films like Amazing Spiderman 2 and Constantine, Jay Martin’s directorial feature debut 7 Minutes is a heist gone wrong film full of tension and suspense. Dealing with jumping timelines, and a lot of energy, the Jason Ritter, Luke Mitchell and Zane Holtz-led crime thriller is now in theaters and is one wild ride.

Martin was nice enough to chat with Icons of Fright about his inspiration with the film, the transition of going from music videos to films and some awesome wardrobe choices for Zane Holtz’s character in the film. Read on!

 

I have always been interested in the heist gone wrong kinds of films, like Dog Day Afternoon. Those are my favorite movies, so your movie had me at the very beginning. »

Which is better, 'Terminator' or 'Terminator 2'?

1 July 2015 4:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ever since the release of 1991's groundbreaking visual effects spectacle "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," folks have been wondering and debating: is the sequel actually better than the original movie? Both have their defenders, though "T2" falls into that rare category of sequels ("The Godfather Part II," "Aliens," "The Empire Strikes Back," "Evil Dead II," "Spider-Man 2," et al.) that are generally upheld as either equal or superior to their predecessors. So which is the better movie? This week seems like the perfect time to re-hash the question. Will you vote for the lean, mean original or its bigger-budget, CGI-enhanced sequel? Hot tip: if you think "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" is superior to both of those, please don't ever leave your house again. Vote below as if your future depended on it. »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

‘Terminator Genisys’ & ‘Magic Mike Xxl’ Enter July 4th Frame Too Close To Call

29 June 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Remember those Independence Day weekends at the box office when records were set? Well, this weekend isn’t going to be one of them. At the high end of the July 4 holiday, you have former titans such as Paramount’s Transformers: Dark Of The Moon raking in $180.7M over six days in 2011 or Sony’s Spider-Man 2 posting a six-day bow of $180.1M in 2004. However, label this weekend as another case of too-close-to-call. It couldn’t be worse with Independence Day falling on a… »

Kevin Feige says Marvel has “big plans” for The Wasp

29 June 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those who have been clamouring to have a big screen solo adventure for Black Widow might just have to wait a little bit longer, because according to Kevin Fiege, The Wasp could be a major part of the McU.

Speaking at a press event for Ant-Man, Feige talked about The Wasp and her place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“We have plans for her in the future,” he said. “And we see that not-so-subtly in this film [Ant-Man].”

Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne has not been confirmed for the next up coming ensemble movie Captain America: Civil War, but could a special cameo be in play?

Kevin Feige Says 'Spider-Man 2' Is "One Of The Best Superhero Movies Ever," Talks John Hughes Influence On New Spidey

29 June 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Perhaps like Christopher Nolan's take on Batman, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man movies (okay, except the third one), have set a pretty high bar for everyone's favorite webslinger. Try as they did, Sony, Marc Webb and Andrew Garfield couldn't get the mix right on the failed "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies, but Marvel is now getting their crack at Peter Parker, and honcho Kevin Feige knows that he's got a big job ahead. “We’re going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think 'Spider-Man 2' is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that’s a lot to live up to,” he told SuperHeroHype. But just how will this new iteration of Spider-Man differ? Well, as has been rumored for the past couple of months, Feige and co. will be drawing on the influence of one of key portraitists of young adult life. »

Kevin Feige thinks Spider-Man 2 is “one of the best superhero movies ever”

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, discussions about the character have been the number one topic of conversation for Kevin Feige. But it seems as though the Marvel head honcho is on the same page as most of the Internet in his preference of Spider-Man movies.

“Right now, it’s all about producing the new stand-alone Spider-Man movie,” Feige told Superhero Hype. “That’s what Sony is focused on. That’s what we’re focused on, and whatever happened before that or after that, sort of remains to be seen, but it’s all about producing the best Spider-Man movie we can, certainly within the Sony Universe… We’re going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that’s a lot to live up to.”

Marvel's Feige Talks "Spider-Man" Future

28 June 2015 1:39 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With "Ant-Man" slated to hit cinemas soon, Marvel's Kevin Feige has taken some time out to talk "Spider-Man" and has shared some further details regarding how their deal with Sony Pictures works.

SuperHeroHype spoke with Feige who only had good things to say about the partnership:

"We're producing that movie for Sony and in partnership with Amy Pascal, so it's been going through the same process of any other Marvel film would, and it's been great. Tom Rothman at Sony has been very supportive in the decisions and obviously the two big ones we announced this week."

Would any of the previous Spider-Man films inspire the upcoming one?

"We're going to have it be its own thing but some of those Spider-Man films… I think Spider-Man 2 is one of the best superhero movies ever, so that's a lot to live up to."

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Marvel/Sony picks a Spider-Man actor in Tom Holland and a director in Jon Watts

24 June 2015 4:17 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

After what seems like one of the longest casting processes in a while, Marvel and Sony have settled on the next actor to play Peter Parker and his superhero alter ego Spider-Man. The search literally took months, involved names both expected and unexpected, but finally concluded yesterday. Putting on the costume will be young Tom Holland, while stepping behind the camera will be Jon Watts. Not familiar with either of those names that Marvel Cinematic Universe godfather Kevin Feige saw fit to hire? Fear not, as I’ll give you the rundown on who they are below, along with who they beat out for their plum new gigs in each case. First up, I should remind you where the character has gone before. We’re getting our third incarnation of Spidey, with Tobey Maguire as Peter in the first three films that Sony put out (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3 »

Fyi: 'Jurassic World' Has Broken a Lot of Box Office Records

23 June 2015 11:08 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Brad wrote yesterday, Jurassic World did better over its second weekend than initial estimates indicated, raking in $106.6 million over the Friday-to-Sunday frame to wrest the crown for best second weekend from Marvel's The Avengers, which pulled in $103.1 million during its second weekend back in 2012. Impressive, yes, but that is far from the only record Universal's latest dino adventure has toppled over the course of its box office run. Through Sunday, Jurassic World has made a whopping $402.8 million at the domestic box office, making it Universal's highest grossing movie ever (not accounting for inflation) and also the fastest film to cross the $400 million mark after doing so in just 10 days of release. The previous film to hold that record was, you guessed it, The Avengers, which isn't a surprise, but perhaps it will surprise you to learn that it took Joss Whedon's superhero team-up a full 14 days to hit that mark, »

Box Office: 'Jurassic World' Nabs Biggest Nonholiday Monday Ever With $25.6M

16 June 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jurassic World continued its rampage at the box office on Monday, biting off $25.6 million to score the biggest nonholiday Monday of all time in North America. From Universal and Legendary, the $150 million tentpole devoured the previous record set in 2008 by The Dark Knight ($24.5 million). Jurassic World's take was also the third-highest-grossing Monday of all time behind Spider-Man 2 ($27.8), which opened over July Fourth weekend in 2004, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which grossed $26.8 million on Memorial Day proper in 2008.

‘Jurassic World’ Stomps to Smashing $25 Million at Monday Box Office

16 June 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

That “Jurassic World” explosion at the box office isn’t over yet. Universal’s dynamic dinos rolled to a whopping $25 million on Monday, according to early estimates. That comes on the heels of a spectacular debut weekend in which the sequel to Steven Spielberg‘s 1993 sci-fi classic shattered domestic ($208 million), foreign ($315 million) and worldwide ($524 million) records. If Monday’s early numbers are accurate, “Jurassic World” will have posted the third- or fourth-largest Monday ever, behind 2004’s “Spider-Man 2” at $27.6 million, 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” at $26.7 million and right around “Pirates of the »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Third Harry Potter Movie a Major Letdown. Is CGI Enough to Create On-Screen Magic?

6 June 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' poster. With Daniel Radcliffe. Rupert Grint. Emma Watson. 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban' quiz question: Does state-of-the-art CGI equal movie magic? (Oscar Movie Series) Alfonso Cuarón seems like an odd choice for director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the third installment in the Harry Potter movie series. That is, if one thinks only of Cuarón's pre-Harry Potter sleeper hit, the François Truffaut-esque Y tu mamá también, while ignoring two of his earlier efforts, the critically acclaimed A Little Princess and the moderately respected Great Expectations. This time around, working with a reported $130 million budget (approx. $163 million in 2015), state-of-the-art special effects, and the Harry Potter franchise, Cuarón surely could do no wrong. At the box office, that is. For although Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is stylistically superior to Chris Columbus' previous work in the series, »

Three Reasons Marvel Has Nothing To Worry About From DC

5 June 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Three Reasons Why Marvel Have Nothing To Worry About From DC     3) Newer Is Not Always Better   While there’s no debating that some things are better when they’re like nothing you’ve ever seen before, like Iron Man or The Avengers, sometimes the first movie is just a decent movie that becomes a stepping stone to a kickass sequel. Or sometimes it’s just Superman Returns. I mean seriously, remember when everyone was excited for the first Superman movie in twenty years? Let’s go through the recent examples: Batman Begins was solid, but The Dark Knight eclipsed it in nearly every way. Captain America The First Avenger was so-so, but The Winter Soldier zipped to the top of nearly everyone’s favourite McU movie. Spider-Man 2, X-Men 2, or Days of Future Past. Hell, even Fantastic Four Rise Of The Silver Surfer was better than the “new” original. Guardians of the Galaxy »

Star Trek: 47 geeky things about the Next Generation films

3 June 2015 3:02 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Star Trek: Generations through to Star Trek: Nemesis - here are 47 nerdy spots in the Next Generation films...

Since Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979, the Star Trek cinematic outings have proved to be a smorgasbord of references and famous actors (or those who would go on to be), and often had complex behind the scenes events that stopped some rather, ahem, fascinating moments making it to the final version. We found lots of nerdy spots in the first six films here.

This time out we look at the films featuring the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation and choose 47 factoids. Granted, there's a lot more than that of interest, but we've tried for ones that you might not be aware of.

Oh, and there are some major spoilers...

Star Trek: Generations (1994)

Animated Superhero Pic Henchmen Enlists James Marsden, Nathan Fillion, Tom Middleditch And More

29 May 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last August, an animated short film from Bron Studios premiered at the computer graphics conference Siggraph, and caught the attention of Gary Sanchez Productions heads Adam McKay, Will Ferrell, and Chris Henchy. The short, titled Henchmen: Ill Suited, told the tale of a dreamy janitor working in a supervillain museum who winds up inside of a dangerous super suit. Not much has been heard of it since Siggraph, but now we’ve received word that a feature film adaptation is officially moving forward and already has a talented group of actors all set to lend their voices.

Several of the actors already have a history of comic book-inspired properties, like X-Men alum James MarsdenDaredevil and Sin City actress Rosario DawsonSpider-Man 2‘s Alfred Molina and Nathan Fillion, who’s voiced Hal Jordan/Green Lantern in several animated DC films. Joining them are Silicon Valley‘s Thomas Middleditch, »
