Dumb And Dumber To – The Review

13 November 2014 9:24 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Do you have a “golden year”, the year where everything seemed to come together? Maybe you got the perfect job and met Ms. or Mr. Right all within just a few months. Well, for Mr. Jim Carrey a good case could be made for 1994. After putting in several years on TV (“The Duck Factory” “In Living Color”) along with sporadic screen roles (from The Dead Pool to Once Bitten), his career went super-nova with the unexpected smash Ace Ventura, Pet Detective in the first few months of that year. In the Summer it was another box office bonanza with The Mask. But the icing on the cake may have been his holiday-time hit Dumb And Dumber. In the ensuing two decades, Jim’s had his highs and lows, even supporting up and coming new comedy flick stars like Steve Carrell in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone last year. He’s also tackled some dramatic roles, »

I Want It Now: Cinema’s long-awaited sequels

12 November 2014 7:54 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Patience is a very important skillset for a film buff, as Hollywood often leaves fans waiting for more for years -- even decades.

Nearly twenty years after audiences were first introduced to the dim-witted duo of Harry and Lloyd, fans are finally getting a sequel to Dumb and Dumber. With Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey reprising their roles as the titular idiots and the Farrelly Bros.’ stepping behind the camera to direct Dumb and Dumber To, audiences will no doubt be chomping at the bit to take another bite out of a classic comedy gold.

Starting with the shortest wait and leading up to the longest, here’s a rundown of some of the longest-awaited sequels of all time.

 

American Reunion (2012) - 9 years

When we were first introduced to the pubescent pastry-procreating protagonists of American Pie, they had barely graduated high school. Fast-forward thirteen years, however, and they’re all grown up with jobs, »

Studio 8 Hires Four, Including CFO, Production And Visual Effects Execs

28 October 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Studio 8 is quickly ramping up, hiring four more executives in both finance and production as it prepares its production slate that will see two movies the first year, four in the second and six in each of the next three, with budgets ranging from $45 million to $100 million-plus. Studio 8 CEO Jeff Robinov said last month that he had planned to hire 14-16 people and is making good on that word. The newest hires include Shaun Williams as his Chief Financial Officer. Williams previously worked at Gk Films where he oversaw day-to-day operations as Svp of Finance. The executive had been involved with Studio 8 since its beginnings when they began developing the overall business plan. He helped to structure the corporate credit facility.

Robinov and his new media company is backed by Shanghai-based China’s Fosun Group which also officially set up shop with Sony. Fosun is the largest privately-owned conglomerate in mainland China. »

10 Awesome Movies You Won’t Believe Got A Rotten Rating On RottenTomatoes

24 October 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures/Roadshow Entertainment

On the internet people want their information quick and easy to digest, hence why RottenTomatoes has become on of the definitive film review websites. An essential bookmark for any film fanatic, they take all the major reviews for every movie and provide a succinct summary and rating out of 100, making figuring out whether a film is good or not easier than ever before.

RottenTomatoes compiles its Tomatometer scores in a rather simplistic way that gives a nice and understandable output. A review is either marked as good or bad (as a rule, 1 and 2 stars is bad, 3 to 5 is good) and these scores are aggregated, with the percentage representing the amount of critics who liked the film. There’s no way it can be misread.

Well, most of the time. Like any algorithm it’s not without its problems. Unlike Metacritic the opinions aren’t weighted, »

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

Ebola Virus Forces Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice To New Mexico; New Set Photos Emerge

16 October 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With location shooting in Detroit now firmly behind them, the production team on Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice are gearing up to begin filming in a whole new environment ahead of the film’s 2016 release.

And while early reports suggested that Africa was next up for the camera crew, it appears the recent Ebola outbreak has forced Warner Bros.’ ensemble piece to relocate to New Mexico. Specifically, Batman V Superman has now set up shop in Deming — a location that has hosted a variety of movies in the past, including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Given that Snyder’s Man of Steel quasi-sequel is arguably the biggest film in production right now, it was only a matter of time before set photos were leaked. In fact, Albuqerque’s Koat 7 news channel has published a report along with an aerial shot of what »

Shia Labeouf Explains That Time He Drank Too Much, Groped Alan Cumming, and Got Arrested at Cabaret

14 October 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Oh Shia. You were such a cute kid. In movies like Transformers and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull you seemed like the perfect combination of boyish good looks, acting chops, and an eagerness to please. And then the troubles started. The arrests. The meltdowns. The purple leggings. At least now we know, it wasn’t temporary insanity or an inability to deal with fame, it was the whiskey that made you do it. At least that’s what he told Jimmy Kimmel last night. 

The hirsute actor explained his June arrest at a performance of the musical Cabaret on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. According to Shia, it was the result of too much whiskey and “looking to turn it up a bit.” In this case turning it up means smoking in the theater, more whiskey drinking, and groping Cabaret star Alan Cumming. If nothing else, it makes »

Ray Winstone’s BAFTA Talk On Tough Guys, ‘Noah’ & Working With Scorsese

5 October 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

BAFTA’s latest Life In Pictures conversation featured British screen icon Ray Winstone, who proved a big draw despite the unseasonably warm October afternoon. With no new title to stump for (although he did mention his upcoming childhood-focused autobiography Young Winstone), the veteran instead entertained the crowd with a freewheeling look at his four-decade-long career, which includes prominent roles in films such as Noah, The Departed, and Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.

While he had plenty of quips about his adventures in Hollywood – including an uncanny Martin Scorsese impression – Winstone spoke passionately about his work in British cinema.

Famous for playing East End tough guys – “My wife asked me why I always walk in a room looking like I’m going to kill someone” – Winstone waxed lyrical about Gary Oldman’s work directing him in the gritty 1997 drama Nil By Mouth.

Steven Spielberg's Cinematographer Says Indiana Jones 5 is His Next Film

2 October 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski works on about one film per year and has collaborated with Steven Spielberg on over a dozen films, including "Schindler's List," "War of the Worlds," "Munich," "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," and "Lincoln." He recently completed work on Robert Downey Jr's "The Judge" and is already planning something for 2015. In an interview with Variety, he revealed that his next movie will be a re-teaming with Spielberg for "Indiana Jones 5." We've heard of lots of hints that "Indiana Jones 5" is moving forward, but mostly from crew members and leaked schedules. But now that Kaminski has confirmed the project, it's only a matter of time before filming begins. »

Indiana Jones 5 Is Happening, Here's The Latest

1 October 2014 4:35 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Indiana Jones 5 is apparently finally going to happen, after several years of false starts, bogus rumors and alleged new casting announcements. And it looks like it's cinematographer Janusz Kaminski we have to thank for having a part in revealing that production on the fifth installment to the beloved franchise could soon become a reality. During a Variety expose on his career, it was flippantly reveled that Kaminski.s "next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie." While this appears to have been thrown in to the article as almost a last thought, Indiana Jones devotees quickly latched on to the revelation, taking it as indication that the fifth film has finally been announced, and that we can all finally try to move on from the cinematic nightmare that was Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. Harsh I know, but fair. It.s been over six »

Is Indiana Jones 5 cinematographer Janusz Kaminski’s next project?

1 October 2014 11:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The folks over at /Film have discovered an interesting new piece of the Indiana Jones 5 puzzle, that points back to cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, who’s worked with Steven Spielberg on a handful of films including Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Schindler’s List, War of the Worlds,  Catch Me If You Can, Minority Report and Saving Private Ryan among others.

Variety first posted an article titled Top Cinematographers Offer Online Course on Filmmaking, that concluded this little nugget of info about Kaminski…

“Since then, Kaminski has made more than a dozen films with Steven Spielberg, earning two Oscars along the way. His credits include Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, and The Diving Bell & the Butterfly. His next project is the upcoming fifth Indiana Jones movie.”

This Deleted 'Indiana Jones 4' Scene Would've Rivaled the Face Melting in 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'

26 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Cool scenes get cut out of movies all the time, and it’s hard to imagine that any single sequence could have saved Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull for me, but I’m still really bummed to learn there was a scene that involved Cate Blanchett’s face being devoured by giant army ants that didn’t make the final cut. Blachett played the evil Irina Spalko in Spielberg’s 2008 film. She gets what's coming to her at the film’s climax (which we won't spoil here), but she was supposed to actually look far worse in the sequence than she did. The original plan was for Spalko to have an unfortunate run-in with the ants featured earlier in the film – one that left her with roughly half a face for the rest of the movie. Watch the...

The Horrible Tragedy One Indiana Jones Character Was Supposed To Experience

26 September 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull wasn.t a good movie. After allowing Indy (Harrison Ford) to actually ride off into the sunset at the end of The Last Crusade, there was no reason . beyond money and obvious fan service . to dust off the whip and fedora for an ill-conceived fourth adventure. If there.s one redeeming quality to Crystal Skull, though, it.s that director Steven Spielberg tried his best to make a shlocky 1950s B-horror movie, and he came close in some aspects. one of which ended up on then cutting room floor. Cate Blanchett made for a hammy Russian adversary in The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a broadly-drawn Commie caricature who raced Indiana Jones (Ford) and his nuclear family to find alien relics in South America. In order to discuss what happens to her character, Colonel Dr. Irina Spalko, I have to dabble »

Ants Were Supposed To Eat Cate Blanchett's Face In Indiana Jones 4

25 September 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

;In 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the two-time Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine") played scientist and military officer, Colonel Doctor Irina Spalko. She was killed at the end of the movie when she demanded the inter-dimensional aliens to give her all of their knowledge. The power is too much for her mere mortal form and she disintegrates. Neat. But, it would've looked a bit different with her face partially chewed off. Yup, the original plan was to have a portion of her face consumed by the vicious ants seen earlier in the film. Below, is concept art illustrator Miles Teves designed for the unused sequence. Indiana Jones is back in a new globe-trotting adventure, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.” Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford as Indy, “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” features an outstanding cast, »

Explanation of How Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and E.T. Share the Same Universe

24 September 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I've come across a very interesting theory that Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and E.T. might actually all take place in the same universe. I love the idea that in some way these stories and worlds are connected with each other. 

io9 commenter plaidboy broke down the details and laid out a road map for how this is possible. It's absolutely fascinating, and even though this was probably never the intention of the filmmakers it's still some incredibly cool speculation.

Here's his full explanation of how this could be possible:

"[I] loathe to validate anything about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But stick with me here; it's a little meta.

"Let's start by looking at things chronologically and diagetically, beginning a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away.

• After taking a break from the franchise, Orlando Bloom has revealed that he has been in discussions to return as blacksmith-turned-pirate Will Turner in Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Norwegian directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are taking the commands of the ship from a screenplay by Jeff Nathanson (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull).

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »
