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 »

Endgame to Finance Bobby Kennedy Pic for ‘Hunger Games’ Director (Exclusive)

14 March 2014 3:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Endgame Entertainment is developing and has agreed to finance an untitled Robert F. Kennedy project with Gary Ross attached to direct.

The project was originally set up at New Regency, which has since put it in turn-around. It caught the attention of Endgame CEO Jim Stern, who has always had a deep interest in the late Senator and presidential candidate.

“I was always drawn to his brand of leadership and his brand of passion and where he came out on issues,” Stern told Variety.

Stern added that another reason he wanted to do the film was the opportunity to finally work with Ross.

“I really thought ‘Pleasantville’ and ‘Seabiscuit’ were great films and I really believe this film could hearken close to both of those projects,” Stern said.

Ross, who also directed “The Hunger Games,” will also produce the pic with his wife Allison Thomas and Bob Cooper. Steven Knight »

Jeff Bridges: Still ‘The Dude’ in San Luis Obispo

9 March 2014 3:03 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Man, this is so cool!”

That was Jeff Bridges’ reaction Saturday night to receiving the King Vidor award for excellence in filmmaking at the 20th San Luis International Film Festival. “It’s wonderful to be acknowledged for my work like this,” he added.

James Cromwell presented the award before an enthusiastic capacity crowd at the Fremont Theater, followed by the actors swapping stories for 30 minutes, a Q-and-a and a screening of Bridges’ signature film, 1998′s “The Big Lebowski” — starring as Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski.

Bridges appeared to genuinely enjoy the event, offering a variety of unaffected and unrehearsed answers.

“When ‘The Big Lebowski’ comes on TV, it’s like ‘The Godfather’ – I’m hooked,” he told the audience. “I always think that I’ll stop after John Turturro licks the bowling ball…. The movie is like candy; it’s so well made. The Coen brothers are so cool.”

Oscars 2015: 5 early predictions for next year's nominations

7 March 2014 9:37 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We know you've barely recovered from this year's selfie and pizza shenanigans, and it's really too early to start thinking about next year's Academy Awards without risking serious mental health repercussions.

But next awards season is already looking sort of exciting. There are new offerings from Paul Thomas Anderson and Christopher Nolan, a David Fincher adaptation of our favourite book from last year, and the role that may very well net Benedict Cumberbatch his first Oscar nomination. Enticed? Read on...

Interstellar

For eight years, Christopher Nolan alternated Batman chapters with standalone sci-fi projects, and now that his Dark Knight trilogy is wrapped up, he theoretically has carte blanche to explore original stories for the forseeable future. First up is Interstellar, a time travel-based sci-fi which has been described as Nolan's "most ambitious film yet".

Nolan's similarly ambitious Inception earned a Best Picture nomination in 2011, and with a cast led by »

She travels the world as a humanitarian and actress, but Angelina Jolie's latest project is inspired by someone very close to home. Jolie, 38, pitched a film adaptation of the book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption, only to discover that its subject, 97-year-old Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini, lived in her Los Angeles neighborhood. "I can show you my roof from the window," Jolie, who is directing the film, told Tom Brokaw from Zamperini's home during a Today show interview that aired Tuesday.

The Trailer for Angelina Jolie's 'Unbroken' Will Leave You Inspired (Video)

18 February 2014 6:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"As a kid, I was always in trouble. I was rotten," Louis Zamperini tells the camera with a chuckle in the first trailer for "Unbroken." This Olympic athlete turned American war hero is the subject of Angelina Jolie's new movie, which is based on Laura Hillenbrand's best-selling novel of the same name. (Hillenbrand is also the author of the book "Seabiscuit," which was turned into the 2003 awards season favorite with Tobey Maguire.)

This trailer, which premiered during the Olympics, uses an interview with the 97-year-old veteran and clips from the movie to introduce his amazing story. Zamperini went from record-breaking track star to World War II pilot, and, in turn, a prisoner of war in a Japanese interment camp. And that's after 47 days at sea.

British actor Jack O'Connell, who plays Calisto in the upcoming "300" sequel," stars as Zamperini in what will surely be a star-making turn. The »

16 February 2014 2:38 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first trailer for Angelina Jolie’s next directorial effort Unbroken has landed online by way of an extended Olympics TV spot.  The film tells the incredibly true story of Louis Zamperini, a former Olympian and WWII bombardier whose plane crashed at sea in 1943.  Zamperini and two crewmates floated adrift for 47 days and 2000 miles, eventually finding themselves caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a Pow camp where Zamperini was targeted by a sadistic overseer.  The real Zamperini appears in this spot to recount his story as we’re treated to the first footage from Jolie’s impressive-looking feature, which includes cinematography by The Master himself, Roger Deakins.  It’s a brief look at what’s likely unfinished footage, but this inspiring story is sure to be a tear-jerker this holiday season.
