“Steve Jobs” takes the Centerpiece slot at the New York Film Festival this year

22 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hot on the heels of the New York Film Festival announcing Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead as its Closing Night Selection (to go along with Robert ZemeckisThe Walk as its Opening Night pick), we now know what the Centerpiece will be, and it’s a big one. Despite some buzz about a few other titles, it’s the hotly anticipated biopic Steve Jobs, which is directed by Danny Boyle, written by Aaron Sorkin, and stars Michael Fassbender. Talk about A-list star power, right? Since it was announced, this has been pegged as a big time Oscar hopeful, so landing one of the coveted three big spots at Nyff has done nothing to dissuade me of that notion. If you somehow don’t know who Steve Jobs is, this biopic should give you a sense of how important to the current technological culture he is. This look at the Apple »

Sdcc: New The Last Witch Hunter posters show Vin Diesel front and center

9 July 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Fast and the Furious actor Vin Diesel is front and center on a pair of new posters for Lionsgate’s The Last Witch Hunter. In the film, Diesel fittingly plays an immortal witch hunter named Kaulder, which is his first starring role outside of the Fast franchise since 2013’s Riddick (excluding Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy).

One poster shows the modern day version of Kaulder in the film, while the other shows an older version of the character…

New York City hides many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us. Condemned to a life of immortality, the last witch hunter, Kaulder (Vin Diesel), is all that stands between humanity and a new reign by the most horrifying and powerful witches in history, including the Queen Witch who will stop at nothing to reclaim her throne.

Interview: Adam Scott Wants Everyone There For ‘The Overnight’

29 June 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Adam Scott has become familiar to audiences through his five year run as Ben Wyatt on TV’s “Parks and Recreation,” but he is also creating a presence on the big screen, with various supporting roles in big films (“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) and his latest comedy, “The Overnight.”

The Overnight” is an exaggerated and very funny truth story about marriage, sexuality and understanding the relationship to one’s self. Two couples, portrayed by Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godréche, start with a simple planned dinner party, and that gathering devolves into a substance-fueled debauchery which lasts through the night. Each individual learns a bit about themselves during the events, and Adam Scott’s character is particularly willing to participate in that change.

Contest: Win Sean Penn’s The Gunman On Blu-Ray

26 June 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After remaining on the straight and narrow with a string of dramatic performance in recent years, including Gangster Squad and the Ben Stiller-fronted The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, the Oscar-winning actor is following in the footsteps of one Liam Nesson for Pierre Morel’s The Gunman.

Beyond sharing a director, Morel’s latest feature also harbors similarities to Taken in that Penn’s former special forces soldier will be called out on one last job. That said, by having our grizzled protagonist suffering from Ptsd, The Gunman is arguably more visceral than its genre contemporaries, and with a supporting cast that includes Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance and Jasmine Trinca, you’ll search far and wide for an unashamed B-movie actioner with a bigger heart.

To celebrate The Gunman‘s arrival on Blu-Ray and DVD at the end of this month, We Got This Covered »

Review: Kristen Wiig Puts On A One-Woman Show In 'Welcome To Me'

28 April 2015 3:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Kristen Wiig fans, rejoice. The 'SNL' alumnus continues to quietly and steadily segue from sketch comedy on the small screen to feature length comedy on the big one, while still retaining her instinctive knack for hilarious shenanigans. “Bridesmaids” started her ascent, and we’ve already seen her this year in “The Skeleton Twins” (reviewed here) opposite fellow funnyman Bill Hader. Now comes Shara Piven’s “Welcome To Me,” where Wiig carries an entire film for the first time. Melissa McCarthy may have stolen her thunder in “Bridesmaids,” and there’s usually a Hader or a Ben Stiller (“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) around to share the weight. Not so in ‘Me,’ a one-woman show from start to finish. The comedienne plays Alice Klieg, a 30-something recluse who hasn’t turned off her television set for 11 years. Her time is spent cooped up in her studio apartment, watching late night infomercials about parakeets, »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

While We’re Young movie review: 40 is the new 14

2 April 2015 5:03 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This stinging GenX midlife meltdown is a bit strained in its plot, but that’s balanced out by lots of melancholy wisdom and bittersweet wit. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

Noah Baumbach’s latest slice of New York life is a stinging GenX midlife meltdown performed with achingly recognizable pain by Ben Stiller (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), while Naomi Watts (Insurgent) looks on with bemusement from the midst of her own crisis. Is middle-age the new adolescence? For Josh and Cornelia, their 40s are bringing teenlike tenor of uncertainty and confusion: scary physical changes are happening, and looking back to their younger years brings a comforting escape from reality. So when they meet 20something couple Jamie (Adam Driver: Tracks) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried: A Million Ways to Die in the West), they »

TV Review: ‘Big Time in Hollywood, Fl’

24 March 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comedy Central produces enough misfires that the appeal of those shows that spark to life, a la “Broad City,” is perhaps magnified. So it is with “Big Time in Hollywood, Fl,” an infectiously energetic, wonderfully silly serialized comedy that feels like a mashup of the Three Stooges and Quentin Tarantino. Featuring several well-known actors in smallish roles (including producer Ben Stiller and Cuba Gooding Jr. as a hilarious version of himself), the 10-episode order isn’t exactly highbrow, but contains enough laugh-out-loud moments to indeed put co-creators Alex Anfanger and Dan Schimpf well on their way to the big time.

Anfanger (who had a role in Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”) and Lenny Jacobson (a “Nurse Jackie” alum) star as brothers Jack and Ben, who are living with, and off, their parents (Stephen Tobolowsky and Kathy Baker) in order to chase their filmmaking dreams, producing perfectly awful »

The Gunman movie review: the yawn identity

18 March 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A tired old piece of action junk that expects us to sympathize with a very bad man. We don’t. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

Aww, is Sean Penn very sorry for having destabilized an entire African nation and bringing about the deaths of countless innocent people? Apparently. A few years back, as a private security contractor — the nice way we say “mercenary” these days — he assassinated the Minister of Mining for the Democratic Republic of Congo, which ignited a civil war. To atone for his crime, these days he brings clean water to Congolese villages, and his naughtiest misdeed is sneaking out of the Ngo compound against the advice of security to get in a little surfing before breakfast.

Now, though, someone who knows what he »

Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti set to play tennis stars Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs for HBO Films

11 March 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect) and Paul Giamatti (Sideways) are set to star in a new project for HBO and Playtone about the Battle of the Sexes tennis match of 1973 which saw Billie Jean King beat former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs.

Deadline reports that writer David Auburn (Proof) is set to pen the film, with Playtone producing partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman executive producing alongside Banks and her husband and producing partner Max Handelman under their Brownstone Productions company.

This isn’t the first project based upon the match to have been greenlit recently. Last year, Chernin Entertainment and Gary Sanchez Productions, headed by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, announced it is set to make Match Maker, based on an Epsn article by Don Van Matta Jr.

Written by Steve Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), the film version will see Ferrell playing Riggs in a version where “Riggs »

Wright and Goldwyn Have an Ugly Parting of the Ways; Brando (More or Less) Comes to the Rescue

11 March 2015 2:07 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright-Samuel Goldwyn association comes to a nasty end (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright in 'Shadow of a Doubt': Alfred Hitchcock Heroine in His Favorite Film.") Whether or not because she was aware that Enchantment wasn't going to be the hit she needed – or perhaps some other disagreement with Samuel Goldwyn or personal issue with husband Niven BuschTeresa Wright, claiming illness, refused to go to New York City to promote the film. (Top image: Teresa Wright in a publicity shot for The Men.) Goldwyn had previously announced that Wright, whose contract still had another four and half years to run, was to star in a film version of J.D. Salinger's 1948 short story "Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut." Instead, he unceremoniously – and quite publicly – fired her.[1] The Goldwyn organization issued a statement, explaining that besides refusing the assignment to travel to New York to help generate pre-opening publicity for Enchantment, »

Watch Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walk the runway at Paris Fashion Week

11 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Derek Zoolander and Hansel are back, strutting their stuff not on screen but on the Valentino runway on Tuesday at Paris Fashion Week. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson made an appearance as their iconic 2001 characters at the event, subsequently announcing Zoolander 2 for release on February 12, 2016.

Pret-a-Reporter is reporting that the film is currently shooting in Rome and that Penelope Cruz is on board to appear in the sequel along with Will Ferrell returning and Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2) writing the screenplay.

The original Zoolander from 2001 has been something of a cult darling as Stiller has moved on to bigger and better things, but this will also be Stiller’s fifth feature film and his follow-up to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty from 2013. Stiller is also serving as producer on this film as well as two other major upcoming sequels, Space Jam 2 and Dodgeball 2. »

Zoolander Returns! Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson Walk the Valentino Runway as Derek and Hansel

10 March 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Those lucky enough to get an invite into Valentino's Fall 2015 Fashion Show during Paris Fashion Week on Monday were also in for a huge surprise -- the triumphant return of Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller's beloved Zoolander characters Derek and Hansel.

Stiller, 49, and Wilson, 46, walked the high-fashion brand's runway totally in character, with Wilson even adding a show-stealing jacket drop to close out the show.

Check out the amazing video below for all the "blue steel" you can possibly handle.

Stiller and Wilson were on-hand to drum up anticipation for Zoolander 2, the long-awaited sequel to the 2001 hit, which is reportedly scheduled to start filming in Rome this spring. Jennifer Aniston's fiancé, Justin Theroux -- whose previous writing credits include co-writing 2008's Oscar-nominated comedy Tropic Thunder, which Stiller directed -- wrote the script.

'The Gunman': Film Review

6 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Taking the lead protagonist role for a change instead of playing the villain (as in Gangster Squad) or a peripheral enigma (see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty or The Tree of Life), Sean Penn stars as a reformed hitman seeking redemption in the trite action film The Gunman. Taken's Pierre Morel may be in the director's chair but Penn has credits as both a co-screenwriter and producer, and ultimately this feels like a vanity project designed to do for Penn's bankability, Africa, Spain and mercenaries what the Taken franchise did for Liam Neeson, Paris and Albanian gangsters. Ripe, borderline hammy

Unfinished Business movie review: business trip-up

6 March 2015 2:24 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Apparently made by snickering 12-year-olds who like naked boobies and have heard rumors about the phenomenon known as “the business trip.” I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): the trailer was embarrassing

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

Unfinished Business is the kind of movie in which a mentally retarded character — whose impairment is offered as a constant source of “hilarity” — is required to recite a line of dialogue such as “The penis touched my face” in a way that, this pathetic excuse for entertainment hopes, will make you laugh. Because the penis did indeed touch his face, and you are, it is presumed, consumed with “American prudishness,” hence you will snicker, just like, in another scene, the retarded character snickers when he sees naked boobies. In a fit of something that the movie deems clever, the naked-boobies scene directly addresses the matter »
