Rosamund Pike Joins Christian Bale In The Deep Blue Good-By

26 February 2015 12:24 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For Rosamund Pike, it seems that not bagging the Best Actress Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards hasn’t hurt her future prospects. Variety reports that she’s now entered talks to star opposite Christian Bale in The Deep Blue Good-By. The adaptation is currently set up over at Fox with Chernin Entertainment and Appian Way set to produce.

The Wolverine director James Mangold will be at the helm, for what’s being touted as the start of a potential new franchise. The Deep Blue Good-By will adapt the first of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee series of novels. Each successive book traces the story of McGee (represented onscreen by Bale), a self-described “salvage consultant” who recovers others’ property for a fee and along the way gets into trouble fighting bad guys and wooing women.

7 stars who won Oscars for the wrong movie: Kate Winslet, Martin Scorsese

18 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you haven't heard, there are a lot of reasons to get angry at the Oscars. In general, awarding a statuette to someone who actually deserves it isn't one of them.

But sometimes, a deserving nominee gets passed over so many times that they finally end up winning an award for something that's not their best work, in what amounts to a kind of unofficial lifetime achievement award.

Digital Spy looks back at seven times the Academy gave out the right award for the wrong movie.

Martin Scorsese (The Departed)

For decades, Scorsese was the most glaring example of an undisputed great who was somehow yet to win an Oscar. Despite being nominated a total of six times, beginning with Raging Bull in 1981, Scorsese was the perpetual bridesmaid and never the bride (a dubious honour he's since passed on to regular collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio).

The seventh time turned out »

Fifty Shades of Grey sequels on the way

9 February 2015 5:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release this Valentine’s Day weekend (because nothing says flowers and romance like an erotic drama), there was some news coming out of a special fan screening of Fifty Shades of Grey. Some fans tweeted and revealed that the book’s sequels Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed would also be going into development.

So far, none of this is confirmed by Universal, but excited fans (via MTV), who attended the “Fifty Shades First” event in New York said that author E.L. James and director Sam Taylor-Johnson confirmed the sequels.

Fifty Shades of Grey has broken box office records in terms of pre-booked tickets for an R-rated movie, and industry experts reckon it will easily take the box office next weekend with around $61 million. Should the movie meet those numbers, expect Universal to announce the sequels pretty sharpish.

The Drop Blu-Ray Review

7 February 2015 8:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dennis Lehane’s books have yielded some terrific crime dramas set in Boston, from Mystic River to Gone Baby Gone, so it’s more than a little strange to consider that for The Drop, Lehane’s first screenplay, he adapted his short story “Animal Rescue” but traded in Dorchester for the mean streets of Brooklyn.

Why he made the change is unclear, but the modified setting is doubly interesting given that The Drop still feels very much like a Boston drama despite a few explicit references to the Big Apple. There’s little by way of scale on display, unusual for a film set in sprawling NYC, and director Michaël R. Roskam (coming off Bullhead, an Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film) infuses many shots with a chilly melancholy and pervasive foreboding that we’ve come to associate with good old Beantown (or at least Hollywood’s impression of »

Fifty Shades of Grey gets an 18 rating in the UK

3 February 2015 12:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It had been speculated since its announcement that the big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey would get a 12A rating in the UK (the equavilent of a PG-13 in the States) in order to get more butts in seats. But by doing so, fans feared they would be missing the essence of the story.

Well, fans’ fears can now be put to rest.

It was revealed yesterday by the BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) that Fifty Shades of Grey will be rated 18, meaning no one under the age of 18 can see the movie. As the BBFC website describes it, “Fifty Shades Of Grey is a drama, based on the novel by E.L. James, about the relationship between a wealthy businessman and a young student.”

“The film contains strong sex and nudity, along with the portrayal of erotic role play based on domination, submission and sado-masochistic practices,” they continue. »

Fifty Shades of Grey director had on-set bust ups with book’s author E.L. James

3 February 2015 11:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having just been announced to have received an 18-rating here in the UK, Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson has been talking about some of the on-set issues she had with the book’s author E.L. James.

“It was difficult I’m not going to lie” she told Porter Magazine. “We definitely fought but they were creative fights and we would resolve them.”

“We would have proper on-set barneys, and I’m not confrontational, but it was about finding a way between the two of us, satisfying her vision of what she’d written as well as my need to visualise this person on screen but, you know, we got there,” she continued.

When asked if the two saw through their differences, Taylor-Johnson simply paused for thought and didn’t give an answer – suggesting the tension between the two remains.

‘A Perfect Day’ Teaser: Inside Tim Robbins’ Conflict Zone Comedy (Exclusive)

29 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — “Welcome!” a soldier shouts at B (Tim Robbins), Mambru (Benicio del Toro) and interpreter Damir (Fedja Stukac) as their jeep approaches a military checkpoint. “Tell them not to wash the car: We don’t have any money. It’s a joke, tell them,” B urges Damir, who hesitates then does; the soldiers, 30 years younger than B or Mamru, who are grizzled vets, stare back eyes glazed, light automatic weapons in hand.

The scene, typical in its comedy and its realism, is one of seven in the first teaser of Fernando Leon de Aranoa’s awaited “A Perfect Day,” to which Variety has had exclusive international access.

Joining Del Toro and Robbins, Oscar winners for “Traffic” and Mystic River” respectively, are Olga Kurylenko (“To the Wonder,” “Quantum of Solace”), Melanie Thierry (“The Zero Theorem”) and Stukac (“In the Land of Blood and Honey”), who round up a top-notch ensemble cast. »

Penn Is Latest Hollywood Celeb to Take Home French Academy's Honor

28 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Sean Penn: Honorary César goes Hollywood – again (photo: Sean Penn in '21 Grams') Sean Penn, 54, will receive the 2015 Honorary César (César d'Honneur), the French Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Crafts has announced. That means the French Academy's powers-that-be are once again trying to make the Prix César ceremony relevant to the American media. Their tactic is to hand out the career award to a widely known and relatively young – i.e., media friendly – Hollywood celebrity. (Scroll down for more such examples.) In the words of the French Academy, Honorary César 2015 recipient Sean Penn is a "living legend" and "a stand-alone icon in American cinema." It has also hailed the two-time Best Actor Oscar winner as a "mythical actor, a politically active personality and an exceptional director." Penn will be honored at the César Awards ceremony on Feb. 20, 2015. Sean Penn movies Sean Penn movies range from the teen comedy »

Sean Penn Set to Receive Honorary Cesar Award in France

26 January 2015 11:28 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Sean Penn is set to receive an honorary Cesar award in Paris during the 40th edition of the ceremony on Feb. 20.

“A mythical actor, an activist and an exceptional director, Sean Penn is a unique icon of American cinema. A living legend,” declared the Cesar Academie, France’s equivalent to the Oscars.

Penn has always enjoyed great popularity in France as an actor and a director. Nick Cassavetes’ “She’s So Lovely” earned him a best actor nod in Cannes, and the last film he directed, “Into the Wild,” was an arthouse hit in France. Penn served as president of Cannes Film Festival’s jury in 2008.

The actor, who won two Oscars for his performances in Clint Eastwood’s “Mystic River” and Gus Van Sant’s “Milk,” will next star in “Gunman,” Studiocanal’s high-voltage thriller directed by French helmer Pierre Morel. It will be released in March in the U. »

Review: Clint Eastwood’s ‘American Sniper’ Starring Bradley Cooper & Sienna Miller

16 January 2015 3:10 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The strength of idol worship depends on a denial of the fuller, more human picture, and after a lifetime of icon status, Clint Eastwood has had enough of dodging reality. His directorial efforts may vary in subject matter and time period, but they commit to stripping away public figures and groups to their flawed core, and starting the real story there. It’s what connects recent films like “Mystic River” and this year’s misfire “Jersey Boys,” and it’s what extends most prominently into “American Sniper,” Eastwood’s purest and most involving vehicle of tension in years. In fact, the film is a spiritual sequel to “Flags of Our Fathers,” in that it examines the reasons men enlist and go to war, followed by the untreated costs of returning home afterwards. Bradley Cooper plays Chris Kyle, the ultimate Navy Seal poster boy: as a sniper for over four tours in Iraq, »

Emmy Rossum on Sinking Her Teeth in Early Film Role and ‘Shameless’ Lessons

16 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As wild child Fiona Gallagher on “Shameless,” which returns for its fifth season this month, Emmy Rossum has shown off some serious comedic chops along with dramatic flair. But it was her singing voice that would land her a role in “Songcatcher,” a first mention in Variety — and take her to the Sundance Film Festival.

Did you see this review when it ran?

I remember how excited I was to see my name in Variety. I remember the picture, too, because I don’t remember it having been taken. It was one of those candid moments when I was methoding. I always really liked it because it was taken at a moment when I wasn’t trying to look like anything.

How did you get the part?

I was singing in the Metropolitan Opera children’s chorus, from age 7 to 13. The producers making “Songcatcher” came to the opera to audition young singers. »
