Terminator Genisys movie review: back from the future… again

2 July 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I have a terrible feeling of deja vu. I have a terrible feeling of deja vu. I have a terrible feeling of deja vu. I have a terrible feeling of deja vu. I’m “biast” (pro): love the early films in the franchise…

I’m “biast” (con): …but it should have been left alone

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I have this terrible feeling of deja vu.

I have this terrible feeling of deja vu.

The Summer of Franchise Movies That Just Makes Me Want to Go Back and Watch the Original Film continues. (See also Jurassic World, Minions, Poltergeist and so on.) The Terminator universe picks up the death knell of 2009’s Salvation with Genisys, in which the time-travel jiggery-pokery that has been futzing with its own mythology in ways that do it no favors now jumps back into the events of the »

Edinburgh Film Review: ‘The Legend of Barney Thomson’

18 June 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The title may be “The Legend of Barney Thomson,” but it’s the protagonist’s near-namesake, Emma Thompson, who earns all the glory in Scottish star Robert Carlyle’s amiably uneven directorial debut. Drawn from the off-kilter comic novels of Douglas Lindsay, this grisly farce finds the helmer giving himself a generous showcase as the eponymous chump, a socially inept barber who quite accidentally becomes a modern-day Sweeney Todd. Still, it’s Thompson’s frayed, frightening turn as his unexpectedly devious mother that gives a salty kick to an otherwise minor diversion, in which simple twists of fate are as thickly matted as the characters’ Glaswegian brogues. A crowd-pleasing curtain-raiser for this year’s Edinburgh fest, “Barney Thomson” is unlikely to secure legendary status beyond Caledonia, but ancillary prospects are solid enough.

“This is the story of what happens when you move chairs,” Carlyle says, in cheerily cryptic fashion, in »

K5 gets 'Orthodox'; Kaleidoscope takes UK

18 June 2015 1:43 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Crime drama stars Stephen Graham and Michael Smiley.

K5 International has secured world sales rights to David Leon’s debut feature film crime drama, Orthodox

The company has already struck a deal with British distributor Kaleidoscope to take the film for theatrical release in the UK and Ireland.  

Orthodox stars Stephen Graham (This is England, Boardwalk Empire) as well as Michael Smiley (Black Sea, Kill List).

The film was financed by Ingenious Media.

The story centres on Benjamin (Graham), an outsider in the Jewish community who takes up boxing as a means of self-defence.  Alienated by his own choices, he finds comfort under the wing of shady fixer, Shannon (Smiley) and an involvement in unlicensed boxing pushes him further to the edges of his community. 

He makes an immoral decision in order to provide for his family and as a result goes to prison. Once released he is determined to right the wrongs, but still a »

Here Are 15 Actors That Were Almost Cast as Superman

12 June 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Did you know that June 12 every year is Superman Day? We're not sure how this particular day came to be dedicated to the Man of Steel, especially since he seems omnipresent in our lives every day. A pop cultural mainstay since 1938, the Krypton-born hero never seems far away, especially in the movies.

Yet while it seems every boy has dreamed of putting on the red cape and flying, the character has been remarkably hard to cast in movies. For every Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh or Henry Cavill who said yes, many more have said no. Here are 15 potential Kal-El's that never came to be.

1. Sylvester Stallone

"Yo, Lois!" After the success of "Rocky," it's no wonder that "Superman: The Movie" producers Alexander and Ilya Salkind considered Stallone to play the Last Son of Krypton. Reportedly, he was deemed too ethnic for the part, though other sources have said that Marlon Brando »

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Rosario Dawson

19 May 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Netflix

A classic rags-to-riches story, Rosario Dawson began her career penniless, with no hopes of ever being an actor. Basically homeless, she was discovered on the streets and cast in her first film at the age of 15. She enjoyed the experience so much that she used her pay to take acting classes, and that’s how she ended up playing Night Nurse in Daredevil.

Her accomplishments sound a little less impressive when you put it like that, but Dawson’s performance as Claire Temple in Netflix’s first Marvel series was one of the highlights of that show. It was just the latest in a long line of great, complex and diverse roles she’s played over the years, starring in everything from Oliver Stone’s ill-fated Alexander to Rent.

Over the course of her career Dawson has played a death-defying make-up artist in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, the »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Serena | Review

Place Beyond the Pines: Bier’s Ungainly Period Piece Revels in Unintentional Gaffs

Danish director Susanna Bier’s second English language film, Serena, has gained a bit of notoriety after an unexpected delayed theatrical release in the Us. A melodramatically inclined period piece based on a novel by Ron Rash (author of The World Made Straight, of which an adaptation was released earlier this year), the lush production design and starry cast creates a misleading veneer, which slowly gives way to a rather kooky portrait of its eponymous lead character. Presented with soberingly grim determination, the film lapses into unintentionally laughable territory, though not to a degree worthy of camp aesthetic or cult following.

Filming shortly after their award winning collaboration on 2012’s The Silver Linings Playbook, the first onscreen reunion of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper finally saw a premiere at the 2014 London Film Festival and reactions have been »

Bend It Like Beckham: Where are the cast of the 2002 box office hit now?

22 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cast your minds back to 2002 - a time when Pop Idols didn't need to have The X Factor, Fifty Shades of Grey were just colours on a paint sampler chart and David Beckham was a mere international superstar rather than global megastar.

Bend It Like Beckham, with a modest estimated budget of £3.7 million, opened that same year and became a critical and commercial success - breaking box office records and scoring BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations, as well as making household names of many of its stars.

As the cast continues preparing for the West End stage adaptation of Gurinder Chadha's screen hit ahead of previews on May 15, find out what the movie's ensemble cast went on to achieve - including who is coming back for the musical...

Russian producers plan film on murdered TV journalist

10 March 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Film will focus on Russian journalist and TV presenter Vladislav Listyev; Oliver Stone eyed as director.

Russian producers Alexander Kulikov (Marins Group Entertainment) and Oleg Teterin (Teterin Film) are planning to make a feature film, Listyev – Hope is The Last To Die, about the prominent Russian journalist and TV presenter Vladislav Listyev who was murdered by unknown assassins on March 1, 1995.

According to Teterin, they are considering Oliver Stone along with Russian film-makers as a possible candidate to serve as the film’s director.

“We hope that the participation in a project of such significance for Russia as a film about Vladislav Listyev will be a natural way for Oliver Stone to continue strengthening his cinematic ties with Russia,” said Teterin whose company last year acquired the rights to Stone’s The Untold Story Of The United States which was later broadcast on Russia’s First Channel.

The Walking Dead, Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut & Hannibal Nominated in 41st Annual Saturn Awards

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.
