’50 to 1′ is an unearned lap to victory

7 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

50 to 1

Written by Faith Conroy and Jim Wilson

Directed by Jim Wilson

USA, 2014

Imagine, if you will, a horse race that starts and finishes in a blink of an eye. We see your choice winner bucking behind the starting gate. His chances of winning are slim to none, fifty to one in fact. You may not know anything about the horse, but you like the sound of his name on the program, and figure you can make some nice cash from a long shot. The gate opens and your horse bellows out the door. Immediately cut to the first bend and he is trailing behind the team. Now, immediately cut to the last and he strides to the finish line by a large margin. Victory is yours, but to what fulfillment? Sure you’re happy that your horse won, and heck, you might have made a serious winning. You probably »

Trailer: Unbroken

13 July 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, with the Coens on writing duty.

Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

Director Jolie began shooting some of the most dramatic and challenging scenes on Wednesday, October 16, on location far out at sea in Moreton Bay, Australia, with Zamperini (O’Connell) and his fellow airmen—Phil (Domhnall Gleeson) and Mac (Finn Wittrock)—having impossibly survived being adrift in the open Pacific for several weeks.

Working with cameras on a floating rig in choppy waters and braving the elements, with actors dieting for months to appear as depleted as their characters, Jolie completed »

New Images and Trailer for Angelina Jolie’s WWII Drama Unbroken

10 July 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Universal have released the first full-length trailer for Unbroken, the WWII drama directed by Angelina Jolie. Starring Jack O’Connell as the heroic Louis Zamperini (who passed away last week), it tells the story of the former Olympian and WWII bombardier whose plane crashed at sea in 1943.

After floating adrift in shark infested waters for 47 days and over 2000 miles, Zamperini – who competed in the 1936 Berlin Olympics as a distance runner – and two crew mates were caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a Pow camp where Zamperini was targeted by a sadistic overseer.

Unbroken has already been named as an early contender for “Best Picture” at next year’s Academy Awards, and it quickly becomes apparent that Jolie has had no trouble moving from in front of the camera to behind it. Unbroken is adapted from Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. »

The 'Unbroken' Trailer Makes a Bid for All the Oscars (Video)

10 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Angelina Jolie can be currently seen on movie screens worldwide as the title character in Disney's blockbuster "Maleficent," which recently became Jolie's most successful movie ever, with a worldwide gross of $600 million (and climbing). And while she has certainly secured her dominance as a box office draw, this Christmas she will be gunning for a different kind of gold, as she enters the Oscar race as a director with the harrowing true-life drama "Unbroken," which now has a brand new trailer.

"Unbroken" was based on the best-selling nonfiction book by "Seabiscuit" author Laura Hillenbrand and concerns a former Olympic track star named Louis Zamperini (Jack O'Connell) who joins the Pacific campaign in World War II, spends nearly 50 days at sea after his airplane is shot down, and then is captured by the Japanese and spends more than two years in a Pow camp. Remind me of this the next time »

New 'Unbroken' Trailer and Pictures

10 July 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The subject of Angelina Jolie's new film, Louis Zamperini, passed away on July 2, which, as callous as it may be, immediately caused many to wonder if it would hurt or help the film's Oscar chances. Personally I believe it just adds one more emotional layer to what sounds like a very emotional story. Universal has released some new pictures and a brand new trailer for the film, Unbroken, which is based on The New York Times bestselling book "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption" by Laura Hillenbrand ("Seabiscuit: An American Legend"), following the incredible life story of Olympian and war hero Zamperini who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII--only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. The film currently sits atop my early Oscar »

Film Review: ‘50 to 1’

13 May 2014 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The story of 2009 Kentucky Derby standout Mine That Bird follows in the hoofprints of other equine heroes, but while the saga of “Seabiscuit” was suffused in Americana, and “Secretariat” leaned on the success of a pioneering woman in the sport, “50 to 1” has less grandiose ideas: It’s more of a bawdy buddy movie about the horse’s trainer, Chip Woolley, and owner, Mark Allen (who exec produced), with a bit of slapstick thrown in. Call it “Smokey and the Bird,” if you will, and keep the cliches coming, barkeep. Odds for success at the box office are a bit longer than the title is offering.

Still, the fact-based film’s timing is excellent (though the events it chronicles are perhaps a bit too recent to mask the ending), with its official opening scant days after the running of the upcoming Preakness, where Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome has a shot »

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Are Teaming Up for a Mysterious New Project

5 May 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's easy to forget that the epic saga of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, a whirlwind romance that has spurred seemingly endless speculation, sold countless gossip magazines, and made for some ridiculously attractive red carpet photos (see above), began on a movie set. They met (and fell in love) on the set of Doug Liman's comic book-y action movie "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." But, since then, the couple has yet to reappear together on screen... That is, until now. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Pitt and Jolie are going to join forces again, on a project that Jolie has written.

While details on the project are (somewhat predictably) scarce, THR is theorizing that this could be a project that Jolie worked on a few years ago, about "a couple with issues who take a vacation in a last-ditch effort to save their marriage." The Reporter also notes that the »

The 101 Best Sports Movies of All Time

20 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A quarter-century ago, Kevin Costner hit a double-play, following up "Bull Durham" with "Field of Dreams" and becoming king of the sports movie. Twenty-five years later, as "Field of Dreams" marks its 25th anniversary (it was released on April 21, 1989), Costner is back with "Draft Day." The movie's about football, not baseball, and Costner's character plays in the executive suite, not on the field, but his mere presence still offers a reminder of great sports movies past.

And after all, isn't nostalgia a key element of sports movies? "Field of Dreams" makes this explicit -- we long for the sports heroes of our childhood, for a supposed long-gone golden age of our preferred sport, as a way of connecting with our past and bridging the generational divide that separates us as adults from our parents. Sports movies offer more than just the drama of winners and losers, or the journey from dream to achievement, »

Artax, Silver, Joey, Shadowfax: 11 greatest movie and TV horses

16 April 2014 1:52 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We were saddened by the news that Gandalf's faithful grey horse Shadowfax - real name Blanco - had died after suffering from an illness last week.

So we thought we'd take the opportunity to stop mourning and instead celebrate Shadowfax and ten other great fictional horses on TV and the silver screen below:

1. Silver

"Hi-Yo Silver! Away!" were the trademark commands of the Lone Ranger to Silver, the magnificent fictional white stallion from the iconic Us radio show and TV series.

A chestnut mare called Dusty was Silver's original predecessor, which is revealed in the 1938 episode The Legend of Silver. When the Lone Ranger saves Silver's life from a savage buffalo, Silver gives up living in the wild, wild west to instead carry the masked former Texas Ranger as his loyal equestrian companion.

2. Seabiscuit

"Let's go, Pops!" Seabiscuit was a real racehorse during the Great Depression in the Us who »

Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘East Of Eden’ May Be Two Movies

14 April 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We already knew that dream-team Gary Ross and Jennifer Lawrence will be working together again on a new adaptation of John Steinbeck’s East of Eden. Well, now it looks like the film could be a two-parter.

Writer, producer and director Ross teamed up with Lawrence on 2012′s The Hunger Games, although he didn’t return to direct her as Katniss in the next installment The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Ross’ first screenplay was ’80s smash Big with Tom Hanks, which he co-wrote with Anne Spielberg, and he’s also brought us Pleasantville and Seabiscuit.

East Of Eden will be the second big screen take on Nobel Prize winner Steinbeck’s literary tome. Published in 1952, the story follows two Californian families and their intertwined lives in the early years of the twentieth century. James Dean made the role of Cal his own in the version directed by the legendary Elia Kazan »

Big 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

8 April 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Though Tom Hanks had been around the block several times before Big hit, it’s the movie that really launched him into a top spot in the cultural consciousness. The awesome, but short-lived, Bosom Buddies managed to get Hanks some guest spots on shows like Family Ties, and 1984 kicked off a string off films that, while perhaps loved by some, didn’t exactly serve to rocket anyone to stardom – Splash, Bachelor Party, The Man with One Red Shoe, Volunteers, The Money Pit. 1988′s Big put Hanks on the map in a big way, and audiences were taken by the charm, depth, and overall impressive abilities Hanks displayed in the film. This carried him through a few years of what we have to now hope were contractual obligation films (Joe vs. The Volcano, The ‘Burbs, Turner & Hooch), to the point that Hanks managed A League of Their Own, Philadelphia, Forrest Gump, »

Jolie's 'Unbroken' to be Yearlong Oscar Target

26 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Hitfix has a report from this year's CinemaCon where Angelina Jolie was on hand to promote her upcoming sophomore directorial effort, Unbroken. If you remember, I already placed the film at #1 on my early Best Picture predictions and her CinemaCon appearance reaffirms the film's early frontrunner status. Though, like Ncaa Basketball, being a preseason #1 only proves to put a target on your back, it's anything but a guaranteed victory. Unbroken won't be hitting theaters until December 25 and its star power behind the camera is impressive from Jolie in the director's chair, to screenwriters Richard Lagravenese, William Nicholson and Joel and Ethan Coen, cinematographer Roger Deakins and composer Alexandre Desplat. The film is based on the New York Times bestselling book "Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption" by Laura Hillenbrand ("Seabiscuit: An American Legend"), and follows the incredible life story of Olympian and war »
