Trailer for Eavesdropping Indie The Sound And The Shadow

12 April 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

"I'm not spying! I'm listening." It's hard to not think of The Sound and the Shadow as an indie version of other classic "listening" thrillers like Brian De Palma's Blow Out, or The Conversation, but there's also something original about Justin Paul Miller vision.

The film about an eavestopping shut-in that finds himself unmittingly involved in a missing persons case stars Paul Miller and stars Joseph E. Murray (All My Children), Mary Kate Wiles (Squaresville, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries) and Alex Anfanger (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty)

Secret screenings, walkouts and 'anticipointment'

What happens when your surprise film isn't Star Wars or Deadpool? People simply get up and leave, it seems....

Since 2013, Cineworld Cinemas have ran exclusive advance screenings for its Unlimited cardholders, giving them the chance to see a film a week or so before release. In the main, these films are advertised in advance and have recently included the likes of Goosebumps, The Finest Hours and Pride & Prejudice & Zombies.

Five times in the last three years, the chain has taken bookings for secret Unlimited screenings, whereby the audience won't know what film they're going to see in advance or at any point before the BBFC certificate appears on screen. Going by social media, this tends to drive people absolutely bananas, particularly in the case of the most recent screenings.

The first two films that were screened for unsuspecting punters were Now You See Me and The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, »

Shirley MacLaine Starring in ‘A Little Mermaid’ Movie

23 February 2016 10:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shirley MacLaine, Poppy Drayton and Loreto Peralta will star in the live-action family film “A Little Mermaid,” based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

Newly launched Mvp Studios is producing the film. The Florida-based company was founded by Robert Molloy, grandson of the late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, and Armando Gutierrez (“Walt Before Mickey”) with a focus on producing and distributing family films.

Shooting is set to start in March in Georgia, with Chris Bouchard (“Hackney’s Finest”) directing from a screenplay by Blake Harris (“12 Dates of Christmas”). Molloy and Gutierrez are the film’s producers.

Andersen’s story, first published in 1837, centers on a young mermaid willing to give up her life in the sea to gain a human soul after she falls in love with a handsome prince. Disney’s animated “The Little Mermaid” was released in 1989 and grossed over $200 million worldwide.

Exclusive: Icelandic companies plan joint slate of Icelandic and English-language films including Óskar Jónasson’s Habeus Corpus.

Icelandic production companies Truenorth and Mystery are partnering on an ambitious slate of eight films to be shot over the next five years.

“Both companies were looking to expand into more European co-productions so we decided to join forces,” said Kristinn Thordarson, head of production at Truenorth.

David Oskar Olafsson of Mystery added that the slate’s eight productions are five in English and three in Icelandic.

“We had the same goals and ambitions,” Olafsson said “By joining teams, we felt we could be working on broader profile films.”

Leifur B Dagfinnsson of Truenorth said that both companies would continue to work on their own projects as well as the joint slate, and they would continue to have separate offices in Reykjavik.

The plan is to have eight to 10 films on the joint slate continually.

The Best and Worst of Ben Stiller, A to Z

Ben Stiller's professional onscreen career is officially turning 30 this year — that's roughly 412 in comedian years. In a business where funny people tend to quickly exhaust their limited charm and sink from telling jokes to becoming a punchline, the restless and versatile Stiller has managed to sustain one of the most consistent comic careers this side of Bob Hope.

Movie Review: Zoolander 2

11 February 2016 9:53 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s been fifteen years since Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson have played Derek Zoolander and Hansel, respectively, and time has not been kind to them. Zoolander came out in 2001 making only $45 million domestically against a $28 million budget, but strong home video sales and a devoted cult following helped put plans in motion for Zoolander 2. With development being traced back all the way to 2008, the film has had a long and troubled journey, but luckily the film has made it to the big screen with most of the original cast members and crew attached. Not so lucky for fans however, is that everyone involved was unable to capture what made the original so special as Zoolander 2 is ultimately a sloppy, lazy and mostly unfunny farce.

Showtime Developing Novel ‘Super Sad True Love Story’ with Ben Stiller Directing (Exclusive)

25 January 2016 12:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Nearly one year after Ben Stiller began developing the 2010 novel “Super Sad True Love Story” for a television series with writer Karl Gajdusek, Showtime has nabbed the project with Stiller attached to exec produce and direct, Variety has learned.

Currently in development at the premium cabler, the book’s author Gary Shteyngart will serve as an exec producer with Stiller and Gajdusek, who is penning the television adaptation. Media Rights Capital is producing.

“Super Sad True Love Story” is a satire of contemporary American values and trends, including the erosion of American political values, the obsession with youth, and the urge to publish personal information through social networking. A unique blend of comedy, tragedy, absurdity and neurosis, the epistolary novel is built around the diaries of protagonist Lenny Abramov and the online posts of Eunice, telling their love story against the backdrop of an American dystopia.

For Sean Penn, Acting Goes Hand-in-Hand With Activism

13 January 2016 3:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the early 1990s, after his brief marriage to Madonna made him tabloid fodder, Sean Penn turned his back on acting to concentrate on directing and writing.

His retirement was short-lived.

The subsequent decades brought Oscar-winning turns in “Mystic River” and “Milk,” along with memorable performances in the likes of “Dead Man Walking” that cemented his reputation as an acting great.

But those early threats of retirement reveal Penn’s long-felt discomfort with being a creature of Hollywood, and point to a contradiction in his public persona. While the entertainment business is part of his DNA, he seems to find his greatest fulfillment far from the klieg lights.

Both sides of Penn were on display last week, when the actor whipped up a media firestorm after his blockbuster interview with Mexican druglord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman appeared in Rolling Stone. The piece, a rambling first-person account of his efforts to secure the interview, »
