Is that insane Bond Spectre helicopter stunt even possible? The answer is yes, and here's why

28 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spectre's latest trailer got everyone talking thanks to its jaw-dropping stunt that saw a helicopter complete a 360° corkscrew (aping the famous car flip from The Man with the Golden Gun).

The question on everyone's lips: can the heli-stunt be executed for real? Digital Spy quizzed Roger Gower, an Atp rated helicopter pilot with over 10 years' commercial experience, on Bond, Mission: Impossible and more to get the lowdown on some of Hollywood's most death-defying aerial stunts. The verdict?

Spectre's insane heli-corkscrew is actually possible

"Is it possible to pull off that Spectre stunt? Several military helicopters can do it - the Apache, Westland Lynx to name two. The Red Bull stunt helicopter does rolls and loops as well. Even if the helicopter wasn't meant to be able to go upside down, if you could keep a positive G-Force on the rotor system - difficult when upside down - most helicopters could »

'Descendants' Preview Brings Classic Disney Characters to Life

23 July 2015 6:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

High School Musical director Kenny Ortega is returning to the Disney Channel with the all-new original TV movie Descendants, which brings some awfully wicked offspring to life. The first 6-minutes have debuted online, with Kenny Ortega introducing the movie and the wild thrills it contains. Here, we get to meet the teenage son of Belle and Beast, who rule over the fantasy kingdom of Auradon. All of the fairytale kingdoms have come together as one, for a story about what happens after 'happily ever after'.

Kenny Ortega describes Disney's Descendants as a modern fairy tale. As he puts it, it's a 'Once Upon a Now' story that will surely resonate with today's youth, as well as their parents alike. This opening prologue springs from the interface of an iPad, telling how Beast became president of Auradon, booting all of the villains and their sidekicks off to the Isle of the Lost. »

23 July 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Universal Pictures has released a new TV spot for F. Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton.

One the most highly anticipated films of 2015, this movie is guaranteed to be huge with fans and at the box office.

Read The Hollywood Reporter’s in-depth article Here. Of their fame, Dr. Dre says, “We were just trying to entertain our neighborhood, just us trying to be hood stars,” he says. “It just became something that was much, much bigger than we ever thought, than I ever imagined.”

Watch this behind the scenes look at the making of the film.

In 1987, five young men, using brutally honest rhymes and hardcore beats, put their frustration and anger about life in the most dangerous place in America into the most powerful weapon they had: their music.

Taking us back to where it all began, Straight Outta Compton tells the true story of how these cultural »

Charlie Clouser’s Soundtrack For Wayward Pines Out On July 17

1 July 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In what’s become the best, and craziest, show this summer, Fox’s Wayward Pines has become must-see TV.

The intense episodes play out more like a movie and the soundtrack is haunting and other-worldly.

Lakeshore Records has announced it will release the Wayward Pines – Original Television Soundtrack digitally on July 17 and on CD July 24, 2015.  The album features the show’s original score by Charlie Clouser (Saw, Numb3rs).

“The main direction I received was that the score should help with the feeling that ‘something is not right’ in the town of Wayward Pines,” said Clouser. “For a while, we don’t know if Matt Dillon’s character is hallucinating, or maybe still in a coma and just dreaming, so the score needed to lean toward a ‘malfunctioning’ feel – that meant using sounds that are a little ‘out of whack’. As the series progresses, the score starts to get more and »

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 »

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 »

Mark Wahlberg versus Mark Wahlberg: A tale of two actors

26 June 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many Mark Wahlbergs are there? I ask because I like the guy who showed up in this week's "Ted 2." I like goofball Mark Wahlberg. I like belligerent Boston Mark Wahlberg. I like dancing silly Mark Wahlberg. I like dim bulb but well-meaning Mark Wahlberg. I do not, however, care for "I'm smarter than I look" Mark Wahlberg. I do not like humorless Mark Wahlberg. I do not particularly care for serious action mode Mark Wahlberg. And when I look at the ones I don't like side-by-side with the ones I like, I find it hard to reconcile that this is all one person. So again… I ask… how many Mark Wahlbergs are there? When Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights" was released, it was a breakthrough for the young actor, part of a banner year in his nascent acting career. He had made a few films before that, including »

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 »

The Glory of Action Villain Jason Statham

9 June 2015 9:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last week, it was leaked and subsequently confirmed that Jason Statham was in deep negotiations to play the villain Bullseye on the upcoming season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. This news was probably the greatest moment of my whole life. Then not even 48 hours later, the talks broke down for whatever mystical Hollywood reason. Statham would not be playing the iconic villain of Bullseye, which was probably the saddest moment of my whole life, because we missed out on an opportunity to watch Statham be an action villain again.

The only thing better than Action Hero Jason Statham is Action Villain Jason Statham, and that’s a side of him that only 2 films have explored to date with 11 years between the two. We could have gotten up to Thirteen Whole Hours of Action Villain Jason Statham, and even more so on a show that had surprisingly great and excitingly choreographed action scenes. »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Charlize Theron

2 June 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Joel Ryan/AP

Charlize Theron is a veteran at the Hollywood game with a career spanning over 20 years, picking up huge roles and vast amounts of awards in the process.

The 39-year-old most recently starred in 2015’s standout action blockbuster, Mad Max: Fury Road, though it is just the latest in a string of highly-successful films throughout her time in the spotlight.

She plays the tough, steely heroine, Imperator Furiosa, alongside Tom Hardy and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the high-octane, adrenaline-fuelled flick, with several of her most-famed roles coming in Monster (2003), The Italian Job (2003) and Prometheus (2012).

The South African actress is set to star as the lead role in Sean Penn’s The Last Face (2015), Kubo And The Two Strings (2016) alongside Rooney Mara and Matthew McConaughey, and Brain On Fire (2016) with Dakota Fanning.

Theron is also reprising her role as Ravenna in The Huntsman (2016) – a sequel to the star-studded Snow White And The Huntsman »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Car Chases

7 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Part 2 of 10: A good car chase works for completely different reasons than its bipedal counterpart. Where a foot chase is more intimate, desperate, and rough, car chases are cool, exciting, almost romantic. Here the journey overwhelms destination: tough guys (and girls) driving sleek machines at impossible speeds. And unlike foot chases, there are no real limitations on where they can go or what they can do—sometimes cars can even fly.

‘The Long Good Friday’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

5 May 2015 5:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Bob Hoskins, Helen Mirren, P.H. Moriarty, Kevin McNally, Alan FordDave King, Bryan Marshall, Derek Thompson, Eddie Constantine, Paul Freeman, Leo Dolan, Patti Love, Pierce Brosnan | Written by Barrie Keeffe | Directed by John Mackenzie

The gangster movie is a beast very like the gangs it is based on.  Depending on the country of origin the crime organisations tend to have certain looks and style and a certain tradition that they cling to as their laws of how to do business.  The modern gangster movies are definitely an example of this, but they also share one thing in common, they lend a lot from The Long Good Friday which gets the Arrow Video treatment with its new release on Blu-ray.

Harold (Bob Hoskins) is a British gangster with an eye to capitalism and being a successful business man.  Seeing London as his empire he is taken aback at the incredulous »

Round-Up: Tom Savini’s Nightmare City Remake, Excerpt from Zombie Novel ‘Outbreak: The Hunger’, Watch First Episode of Wayward Pines

24 April 2015 8:12 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

New Projects: Chris Pratt gearing up for bootlegging drama ‘The Real McCoy’

16 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You might’ve used the expression “The Real McCoy” and not actually known where it came from. Colloquially it refers to something being authentic, or the real deal. In fact, if someone were to name their movie after it, you might presume it was just a romantic comedy.

Well, now super-mega-star Chris Pratt is set to star in a movie about where that expression originated. The Real McCoy is a bootlegging drama about the life of Bill McCoy, a famous rum-runner during Prohibition who, as an American sea captain, shipped and sold illegal liquor across the coast until his capture in 1923. According to urban legend, McCoy touted that his liquor was never “cut”, or watered down, thus the expression “The Real McCoy”. But McCoy is also credited with having essentially created the six pack in order to better carry and ship bottles of rum and whiskey.

Michael Mann's long-gestating Enzo Ferrari biopic in final development

15 April 2015 3:26 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Michael Mann's long-gestating Enzo Ferrari biopic is in the final development stage.

Ferrari, which Mann has been attached to since 2011, is due to begin shooting next year.

The filmmaker has merged two scripts - The Italian Job by Troy Kennedy Martin and Out of Africa by David Rayfield - for the film, Variety reports.

Both scripts are based on Brock Yates's 1991 book Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races.

Mann is developing the biopic with Los Angeles-based production company Cecchi Gori Media.

He recently directed Blackhat, which starred Chris Hemsworth. Watch Michael Mann discuss the film with Digital Spy below: »

Mann Set To Helm "Ferrari" Film Next Year

15 April 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Michael Mann and Cecchi Gori Media are reportedly in final development stages on the long-gestating biopic about Italian automotive mogul Enzo Ferrari.

Mann is set to direct the project which is currently targeting a 2016 film shoot and will be based on Brock Yates' 1991 book "Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races".

Ferrari redefined the high-powered Italian sports car and almost single-handedly created Formula One racing. Mann has reportedly merged two scripts, one by Troy Kennedy Martin ("The Italian Job") and another by David Rayfield ("Out of Africa").

Niels Juul ("Silence") will executive produce the film which has no links with the recently announced rival biopic project which will star Robert De Niro. In fact this new one was originally going to happen in 2004 with Sydney Pollack directing and Al Pacino starring, but has taken a very long time to get off the ground.

Michael Mann and Robert De Niro Are Competing in a Race of the Enzo Ferrari Biopics

15 April 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Michael Mann is about to go head to head with his Heat star Robert De Niro. The director and the actor are working on separate biopics about Enzo Ferrari, the champion Italian racer who founded the luxury sports car company named after him. According to Variety, Mann’s version has been in the works for a while with the Rome-based Cecchi Gori Media (De Niro’s A Bronx Tale) and now he’s in final talks to direct the movie. It’s unclear if this will be his follow-up to Blackhat, but shooting wouldn’t begin until next year. Not that I expect he’d slip something else in before that. Currently titled Ferrari, according to IMDb, the script for this one is a Mann-ordered mash-up of efforts penned separately by Troy Kennedy-Martin (The Italian Job) and the late David Rayfiel (The Firm), both individually adapted from the 1991 biography “Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the »

Michael Mann Lines Up Next Feature, Ferrari Story 'Go Like Hell'

15 April 2015 9:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was not a fun experience watching Michael Mann's Blackhat. Not only was it a terrible film, but it was a terrible film from one of my favorite filmmakers, a filmmaker that seems to be moving closer to the lackluster output of Ridley Scott and farther away from the man that made the likes of Collateral, The Insider and Heat. So, just as my interest in Scott's The Martian isn't too high, I can't say I'm all that intrigued when it comes to Mann's next project, which Variety reports is the long-gestating "Ferrari" biopic, about Italian automotive mogul Enzo Ferrari. We first reported on this project back in May 2011 when word was 20th Century Fox would distribute Go Like Hell, a film based on A.J. Baime's "Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans" with a script by Jason Keller »
