Denzel Washington’s ‘Fences’ Lands Oscar-Friendly December Dates

18 July 2016 2:56 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As expected, Paramount has booked the Denzel Washington film version of the Tony-winning 2010 revival of August Wilson’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning drama “Fences” for December 16 limited release in Los Angeles and New York, followed by a national expansion on December 25.

This marks Washington’s third outing as a director, following well-received indie dramas “Antwone Fisher” and “The Great Debaters.” He’s been in the Oscar derby six times as an actor, winning twice, for “Glory” and “Training Day.” And he headlines Antoine Fuqua’s western remake “The Magnificent Seven” this fall.

Produced by Scott Rudin, “Fences” tells the story of retired baseball player Troy Maxson (Tony-winner Washington), who is now a garbage man looking regretfully back on his past while tangling with his wife Rose (Tony-winner Viola Davis). Mykelti Williamson and Russell Hornsby also reprise their stage roles.

Washington wrapped the ’50s-era film in Pittsburgh in June, when Viola Davis tweeted: “It’s a wrap! »

Game Of Thrones: Brian Cox turned down a role, regrets it now

4 July 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Jul 4, 2016

The mighty Brian Cox turned down Game Of Thrones "because they didn't pay enough money"...

Brian Cox (the legendary thesp seen in X-Men 2, Troy and the Bourne franchise; not that star-gazing bloke off the telly) has a varied and mostly-very-good CV. One thing that isn't on it, though, is Game Of Thrones.

As Vodzilla has now found out, HBO did once approach Cox to try and get him on their now-huge bloodbath of a show. Cox now describes himself as a "complete addict" of the show. So why did he turn it down in the first place?

“Stupidly, I turned it down in the early days because they didn’t pay enough money,” Cox told Vodzilla, apparently laughing as he said it. “Now they have more money. And I was silly. I was silly, it was silly, because I’m a complete addict now. But I don »

New image from Churchill starring Brian Cox as filming wraps

27 June 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few weeks back we brought you a first look image of Brian Cox as Winston Churchill in director Jonathan Teplitzky’s upcoming biopic of the legendary British Prime Minister, and now Salon Pictures has debuted another still from Churchill to mark the end of principal photography, which sees Cox joined by Ella Purnell and Miranda Richardson.

May 23rd, 1944: as tensions mount in the 48-hours preceding D-Day, the now-beleaguered Prime Minister Winston Churchill, played by Brian Cox (The Bourne Supremacy, X-Men 2, Zodiac, War & Peace, Troy), must prepare a final attempt to crush Hitler’s encroaching army. With the entire War effort ultimately hinging on this decision, the stakes have never been higher. As the Wartime leader clashes with his generals, tension builds with the Americans, and Churchill must wrestle his inner-demons in order to navigate the Allies to victory.

Miranda Richardson (Harry Potter, Testament of Youth) plays beloved wife Clemmie Churchill, »

Exclusive Trailer for The Lighthouse: The Sea And The Madness

25 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

I love horror films that are set in the past, before mobile phones, internet, even before cars; the more isolated, the better, without the distraction of modern life interrupting what makes us truly afraid. When all you have is other humans and nature and the thin line that separates you from violence and insanity. Such seems to be the case with The Lighthouse, a new feature film directed by Chris Crow (Devil's Bridge, Panic Button) and produced by David Lloyd (Devil's Bridge). Starring Michael Jibson (Les Miserables, The Riot Club) and Mark Lewis Jones (Troy, Master and Commander), it tells the true story of the Smalls Island incident of 1801, off the coast of Wales. Quite macabre, and all the more sinister for being plucked...

Mfr Explores The Dceu's Road To Ruin: Column #2

Concept Art for "Superman: Flyby"

Welcome back to a special ongoing look at Warner Bros. and how it's handled its DC Comics properties. It's going to be a weekly, ongoing miniseries here at Lrm. This entry will look at what into relaunching the Batman and Superman franchises, and more. We'll explore all of the interesting parallels and forks in the road that brought us to where the Dceu is today. 

Last week, we left off in 1997. Batman And Robin came out and was a huge black eye for Warner Bros., effectively turning what was a once promising franchise into a punchline. It was the fourth installment of that series, and it killed Batman almost as definitively as the fourth Superman film had grounded the Man of Steel exactly 10 years earlier. 

But before we can look at how Warner Bros. planned to rebound its DC properties post-1997, we have to »

Returning stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are joined by Chloë Grace Moretz for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, the follow-up to 2014’s most popular original comedy.

Now that Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs. But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.

7 Famous Writers Who May Not Have Actually Existed

17 March 2016 6:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Wikipedia/OliScarff

The question of authorship has always been a fascinating one. When a book is published, people tend to take for granted that the person who wrote it is a real living, breathing human being. With a brief author’s bio and a smiling picture, why would you question it? What would be the point of making up an identity?

As it turns out there are plenty of reasons why a person or company might want to present somebody as real when they’re not: like if that person happens to be saying nice things about your company, or is purporting to have lived an incredibly interesting (and marketable) life.

On top of that, the further back in time we travel, the harder it is to truly prove a person’s existence, even those figures who are considered household names.
