Dennis died in his Portland, Ore. home, according to the American Film Institute. AFI was unable to confirm the date of his passing at this time.

Disney Animation Welcomes Ginnifer Goodwin & Jason Bateman To Zootopia

6 May 2015 6:13 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Walt Disney Animation Studios has announced the addition of Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman to Zootopia, Disney’s 2016 animated feature set in a modern mammal metropolis. Goodwin (ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” “Something Borrowed,” “Walk the Line”) will lend her voice to an optimistic bunny named Judy Hopps who’s new to Zootopia’s police department.

Jason Bateman (“Horrible Bosses 2,” “This is Where I Leave You”) voices the scamming fox, Nick Wilde, who Judy reluctantly teams up with to crack her first case.

“We knew that ‘Zootopia’ would only succeed if we found the perfect actors to play our main characters,” said director Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”). “This rabbit- and fox-duo are in practically every scene in the film together. After meeting Ginnifer, we knew she embodied Hopps, the ultimate pure-of-heart, idealist bunny. You fall in love with her character instantly. And for Nick Wilde, our cynical con-artist fox, »

Christian Bale Injury Forces Fox to Drown 'The Deep Blue Goodbye'

27 April 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If you were looking forward to seeing Christian Bale leading the adaptation of John D. MacDonald's mystery adventure novel The Deep Blue Goodbye, then we have some bad news. According to THR, Bale recently tore his Acl, which will prevent him from filming the adaptation due to how much physical exertion would have been required for the film, including an action sequence that would've taken place on boats. So for now, 20th Century Fox has put the project on hold, with some sources saying it could be postponed instead of scrapped completely, but the future fate of the film isn't clear at this time. Read on! The film would have been directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine, Walk the Line) with Peter Dinklage and Nicola Peltz co-starring. Production was going to begin next month in Florida and Puerto Rico, but with Bale's injury preventing him from being able to complete action sequences, »

Christian Bale's 'The Deep Blue Goodbye' Sinks Due To Knee Injury

27 April 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Try as they might, Hollywood just can't get John D. MacDonald's pulpy Travis McGee books turned into the franchise they want. "The Deep Blue Goodbye" has been kicking around Hollywood for years, with Leonardo DiCaprio (now producing) once eyed to star, and directors like Paul Greengrass and Oliver Stone taking a look. Things seemed to settle last year when Christian Bale signed up, with James Mangold ("The Wolverine," "Walk The Line") at the helm. But it looks like the "3:10 To Yuma" reunion with director James Mangold has been sidelined. THR reports that Bale has suffered a torn ACL which will keep him out of the action thriller. The actor is currently shooting the financial world drama "The Big Short" with Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, and Steve Carell, but 'Goodbye,' which was scheduled to start lensing in May, would've required more fancy footwork. The story follows a “salvage consultant, »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Sofia Vergara And Reese Witherspoon Play The Odd Couple In UK Trailer For Hot Pursuit

9 April 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of Warner Bros.’ big summer comedies packs the weight of two major headliners: Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. While the former did scoop up an Oscar a while back, she’s remained relatively low on the radar in the aftermath of her glorious win. The latter, however, has established herself as one of the highlights of ABC’s mockumentary comedy Modern Family. Put the pair together and what do you get? This year’s female buddy comedy, Hot Pursuit.

Previously titled Don’t Mess With Texas, the film might have swapped out its name, but the story remains the same. Witherspoon plays an uptight cop tasked with transferring Vergara’s glamorous moll across the country. In order to deliver Vergara, a key witness in the trial of a noted mobster’s death, Witherspoon’s fussy law enforcer must do whatever it takes to protect her. That includes all sorts »

Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara Star in Hilarious New Trailer For Hot Pursuit

9 April 2015 2:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures comes the comedy Hot Pursuit, starring Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (“Walk the Line,” “Wild”) and Sofía Vergara (“Chef,” TV’s “Modern Family”), under the direction of Anne Fletcher (“The Proposal”).

Watch the hilarious new trailer now.

In Hot Pursuit, an uptight and by-the-book cop (Witherspoon) tries to protect the sexy and outgoing widow (Vergara) of a drug boss as they race through Texas, pursued by crooked cops and murderous gunmen.

Fletcher directs from a screenplay written by David Feeney (TV’s “New Girl”) & John Quaintance (TV’s “Ben & Kate”). John Carroll Lynch (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”) and Robert Kazinsky (“Pacific Rim”) also star.

The film is produced by Bruna Papandrea (“Wild,” “Gone Girl”), Reese Witherspoon and Dana Fox, with Jeff Waxman, Sofía Vergara and Luis Balaguer serving as executive producers.

Set to hit theaters on May 8, 2015, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. »

Wild Blu-Ray Review – Reese Witherspoon Takes A Mental Hike

7 April 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Based on the memoir by Cheryl Strayed, Wild follows along as Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) suddenly decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, more than a thousand miles of rough territory, all by herself.

The intensely personal story is well-suited to Witherspoon, and gets a lot of its power by way of director Jean-Marc Vallée and his ability to frame a scene, and work a conversation to its best emotional effect, in much the way he managed in Dallas Buyers Club‘s more subdued scenes.

The film is about as straight-forward, and difficult to relate, as Eat Pray Love. In this case, Strayed adds a level of difficulty, and perhaps stupidity, to her journey by tackling something she isn’t prepared for, but the “life-altering journey” is the same.

The film kicks off on the middle of the road, and then dances through various pasts – on the trail, through the drug use and failed marriage, »

Bessie: Watch the Trailer for the HBO Biopic, Starring Queen Latifah

3 April 2015 3:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last month, we saw the first picture and teaser from HBO's upcoming Bessie, a biopic covering the life of blues songstress Bessie Smith, arguably the most exquisite set of pipes North America has ever produced. Smith is being portrayed by Queen Latifah, and the latest trailer highlights what looks to be one of her routine firebrand performances as the blues singer, who was notorious for her drinking and subsequent mean streak. More than the teaser, for certain, this trailer also gives a small sense of Smith's tumultuous relationship with her husband, played by Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire), and Ma Rainey (Mo'Nique), her longtime friend, colleague, and fellow singer. The rest of the film that can be gleaned from the new trailer looks to be normal biopic fare, the same kind of scenes of alcoholism, emotional breakdowns, abuse, and performance that make up more than 50% of like-minded musician »

Move It On Over: Sony Pictures Classics Bottle “I Saw the Light”

2 April 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Most notably known for this producer creds (Children of Men), Marc Abraham’s Hank Williams passion project has found a home with the Sony Pictures Classics. Check-marking Spc’s method of operation in acquiring titles with an already built-in fanbase, we’re expecting a Walk the Line type treatment for I Saw the Light. If we had to guess, it’ll contain generous musical outtakes in the Williams library, and in the best of worlds showcase a transcendental, fighting the demons perf from Tom Hiddleston and cover the bases of what would be a competitive/romantic/abusive dynamics with the equally headstrong Audrey Mae Williams (here played by Elizabeth Olsen). Look for a film festival launching – Telluride and/or Tiff would be appropriate.

13 March 2015 2:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Game Of ThronesPeter Dinklage and Transformers: Age Of Extinction star Nicola Peltz have entered talks to appear in Fox’s franchise-starter The Deep Blue Good-By. Based on John D. MacDonald’s series of novels about a free-wheelin’ bachelor with a taste for trouble, the studio are aiming to kickstart a series of movies with Christian Bale at the center.

James Mangold (The Wolverine, Walk The Line) will direct The Deep Blue Good-By, the first in a proposed line of adaptations. It will revolve around the self-proclaimed “savage consultant” Travis McGee (Bale), who has been transformed from novel to screen from a house boat-livin’, easy-going beach bum into… an Afghan war vet.

The latest versions of the screenplay, penned by Wolvie scribe Scott Frank – who in turn reworked a series of earlier drafts by Dennis Lehane – will now find the experienced military man “on the trail of stolen sapphires which leads to a sadistic torturer. »
