The Best Of The Best – The Greatest Composers And The Scores That Made Them Great

10 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Dave Roper

With Actors, Directors, Actresses and Screenwriters under our collective belt and Cinematographers still to come, we presently turn our eye towards Composers, whose music lends so much to the films they work on.

As with the other lists, credit is given for not merely one or two sterling scores, but rather a consistently excellent body of work with specific stand-out films. To be blunt, this is a trickier prospect than it at first appears. Just because a film is terrific or well-loved doesn’t necessarily mean that the score is itself a standout. We begin with perhaps the most obvious and celebrated film composer of them all…..

John WilliamsStar Wars

Goodness me. The Poseidon Adventure, The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Long Goodbye, Catch Me If You Can, Star Wars, Close Encounters, Star Wars, Superman, Et, Born on the Fourth of July, »

‘Gears of War’ Screenwriter Worked On The ‘Avatar’ Sequels

4 May 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Over a decade ago, talk of a Gears of War movie started. Ever since its announcement, some notable writers have come and gone from the project. Chris Morgan (The Fast and the Furious franchise), Stuart Beattie (Collateral), and Billy Ray (Shattered Glass) all took cracks at the video game adaptation. With the project alive again, and this time at Universal, a new writer […]

Gears of War Movie Brings in Avatar Sequel Writer

3 May 2017 6:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that the long-awaited Gears of War movie found a studio home at Universal last October, the project is finally starting to come together. Universal has brought on screenwriter Shane Salerno, who co-wrote all four upcoming Avatar sequels with James Cameron, to work on on the screenplay. Dylan Clark will produce through his Universal-based production company, although no director is set in stone quite yet.

When Universal announced their partnership with The Coalition, the Microsoft-based company that develops the video game franchise, it was revealed that the movie wouldn't be based on a specific game in the Gears of War franchise, but an original story set in this established universe. Deadline broke the news of Shane Salerno coming aboard to write the script, but no story details have been given as of yet. This popular video game franchise has had a long road to the big screen, but now »

Michael Mann, Michael De Luca line up 'Hue 1968' series

24 April 2017 12:25 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Vietnam War adaption will focus on lives on all sides during pivotal Tet Offensive.

Michael Mann and Michael De Luca have acquired rights to Mark Bowden’s upcoming book Hue 1968, which they will develop into an eight-to-10-hour miniseries.

Mann, the Oscar-winning director of Collateral, The Insider, and Heat, will direct multiple episodes and produce alongside De Luca, the Fifty Shades Darker producer who recently co-produced the Oscar telecast.

Hue 1968 took Bowden, the best-selling author of Black Hawk Down, five years to write and focuses on lives on all sides of the conflict during the pivotal Tet Offensive. Grove Atlantic will publish the book on June 6.

Characters include a seemingly innocent Vietnamese schoolgirl turned hardened revolutionary; a Marine captain from Pennsylvania who becomes a war hero; a Hanoi teacher who fights as an infantryman for the North Vietnamese army; and Us president Lyndon B. Johnson.

Mark Bowden’s written a masterpiece of intensely dramatic non-fiction,” Mann said. “Bowden »

‘City of Tiny Lights’ Review

10 April 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Riz Ahmed, Billie Piper, James Floyd, Roshan Seth, Cush Jumbo | Written by Patrick Neate | Directed by Pete Travis

I could watch Riz Ahmed in almost anything, but there are limits, tested here by this deeply mediocre British mystery thriller. Adapted by Patrick Neate from his 2005 novel, City of Tiny Lights is helmed by Pete Travis, who in 2012 nearly rescued Judge Dredd from comic book movie hell. But while Travis transposes some of Dredd’s style, he cannot bring its boldness, humour or efficiency.

Ahmed plays Tommy Akhtar, a “snoop” who is so underground that even his job description is unclear. Basically, he’s a private detective. One day he’s visited by a working woman named Melody (Cush Jumbo). Her flatmate is missing. Tommy investigates and finds the body of a Pakistani businessman. It’s a discovery that will bring him into close contact with two blasts from his »

Pete Travis interview: City Of Tiny Lights, politics, Dredd

Simon Brew Apr 9, 2017

Director Pete Travis chats to us about City Of Tiny Lights, television, politics and Dred..

City Of Tiny Lights, starring Riz Ahmed and Billie Piper, is the latest film from director Pete Travis, known particularly in this parish for helming Dredd. We met up with him in London to chat about the movie, about politics, and about Dredd

I read an interview for City Of Tiny Lights where you were quoted as saying you wouldn’t make the film unless Riz Ahmed did it, and that he was the first choice for the lead role of Tommy. I can’t tell you the number of people I interview who say something like that and…

… mostly they’re lying when they say that!

Well, quite possibly!

There’s a rule about casting I learned a long time ago. The right person for the role is the person who »

Ben Wheatley interview: Free Fire, Minecraft, Statham

29 March 2017 12:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 30, 2017

Free Fire director Ben Wheatley chatted to us about the film, Martin Scorsese, Freakshift and his Jason Statham double-bill theory...

We have a lot of love for Ben Wheatley here at Geek Towers. His films, from Kill List to the star-studded ilk of High Rise, never fail to impress. And on TV, he directed the stellar opening episodes of Peter Capaldi’s stint on Doctor Who.

And now he’s brought us Free Fire, a thrilling close-confines shootout movie which plonks Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy, Sam Riley and more in a warehouse full of semi-automatic and lets chaos ensue.

Wheatley wrote the script for Free Fire with his wife and writing partner Amy Jump, having been inspired by an FBI incident report from the 1980s. The mighty Mr Martin Scorsese was involved in the movie as an executive producer.

The resultant film is »

Hugh Jackman, Noomi Rapace for Michael Mann's Ferrari biopic

8 March 2017 1:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Mar 9, 2017

Hugh Jackman and Noomi Rapace are in talks to star in Michael Mann's Ferrari biopic. So start your engines.

Hugh Jackman may have finally said goodbye to the role that made him a movie star in Logan this past weekend, but he looks ready to celebrate by taking on a part that requires a whole lot more time in the kitchen than the gym with Ferrari, a new biopic from Michael Mann (Heat, Collateral). Deadline broke the news that Jackman and Noomi Rapace of the original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus fame are in talks to take on the roles of Enzo and Linda Ferrari.

The film, which details a relationship that was apparently as high octane as Enzo’s famed sports cars, has been a project Mann has been developing for decades, originally starting work on it with the late great Sydney Pollack. »

Just How Many Black Actors Have Won an Oscar? The Number Is Disturbingly Low

26 February 2017 10:15 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty / Lee Celano The Oscars have been plagued by obvious race issues since they began in 1929, and things seemingly came to a head with the #OscarsSoWhite discussion a couple of years ago; the overwhelming lack of diversity in nominees in both 2015 and 2016 resulted in Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs taking bigger, more noticeable steps to double the number of diverse members in its voting body by 2020. Nevertheless, a black actor (the incomparable Sidney Poitier) wasn't awarded until 1964, and it was only in 2002 that Halle Berry became the first black woman to win a best actress trophy. At this year's ceremony, Mahershala Ali and Viola Davis won for their supporting roles, adding to a pretty short list. So, just how many black actors have won Oscars over the years? Sixteen. A whopping sixteen distinguished, talented people in 89 years. Scroll through to see who they are and learn about the records they've broken. »

Tom Cruise Alley Scene in Collateral is Actually Used in Tactical Handgun Training

14 February 2017 3:08 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

While movies are often dramatized to the extent that you’ll never, ever see some of the stuff performed in movies in real life, on occasion a movie can perform a scene so well that real life implications can actually follow.  Whether it’s a new car we want to create, a new weapon that comes to light, or even a particular technique we’ve never seen before, movies can be an inspiration for real world scenarios. Here’s something I found out today.  There’s a scene in the movie Collateral where Tom Cruise is being held up in an alley.   He is approached

All the Ways 'The Dark Knight' Borrowed from 'Heat' Revealed

6 February 2017 3:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has long cited Michael Mann's 1995 crime epic Heat as an inspiration for his best-loved Batman film. 

For casual viewers, the opening heist scene in which The Joker (Heath Ledger) steals from the mob has the most easily recognizable callbacks (and even features Heat star William Fichtner in the key role as the bank employee who takes a stand against the Joker's men). 

Now, an excellently crafted video from Glass Distortion delves into the visual cues The Dark Knight takes from Heat, as well as other films in Mann's catalogue: L.A. TakedownThe Insider, and Collateral.

Great Job, Internet!: A closer look at The Dark Knight’s debt to Michael Mann

6 February 2017 12:18 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Michael Mann’s one of those filmmakers whose greatest films inspire fierce debate. An argument can and has been made that nearly all of his movies (except for The Keep, maybe) is his masterpiece, whether its prestige period pieces like Last Of The Mohicans and Public Enemies or the gnarly digital pulp of Blackhat and Collateral. Nearly everyone agrees, though, that Heat is up there, an operatic meditation on cops and robbers that still manages to function as an all-time great action flick.

Chief among that movie’s fans is director Christopher Nolan, who cited it repeatedly as an inspiration for his own (arguable) masterwork, The Dark Knight. A new video essay explores just how much Nolan was able to match the tonal, topical, and even kinetic feel of that movie. (Collateral and The Insider are also featured, though to a much lesser extent.)

Sundance ’17: Short Film ‘Night Shift’ by Marshall Tyler

6 February 2017 6:12 AM, PST | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

For a short film, “Night Shift” has a backstory of its own which gives more than the film’s glimpse into a day in the life of a bathroom attendant in a Los Angeles nightclub.

Filmmaker Marshall Tyler’s “Night Shift”, stars Tunde Adebimpe and is executive produced by JuVee Productions, the company founded by Viola Davis and her husband Julius Tennon established to empower diverse voices and emerging artists. It is produced by Moira Griffin, Efuru Flowers and Roberta Marie Munroe.

Third Time’s a Charm for Michael Mann’s ‘Ali’ Commemorative Edition Cut

17 January 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Times change,” director Michael Mann says of what prompted him to revisit his 2001 Muhammad Ali biopic “Ali” for a “commemorative edition” Blu-ray. The new cut hits shelves today, on what would have been Ali’s 75th birthday. “What I was interested in, particularly now, was making more tangible the forces that were raised against him, all his adversaries, and linking them in a strong way.”

A director’s cut of the film was released in 2004, injecting eight-and-a-half minutes of material that both amplified the political strife of the times and deepened Ali’s kinship with sports journalist Howard Cosell, among other things. For the new release, Mann has pulled some of those Cosell elements back while keeping the political material in tact, shaving and trimming elsewhere for the shortest cut yet — though one still clocking in at a robust 151 minutes.

Film Review: ‘Sleepless’

12 January 2017 9:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In “Sleepless,” a stylishly hollow crime thriller set in Las Vegas, Jamie Foxx plays an undercover cop named Vincent Downs who is up to his goatee in Big Problems. He and his partner (played by the rapper T.I.) just killed two crooks they shouldn’t have, and they also ripped off a more dangerous drug dealer than the one they thought they were working. Vincent is now carrying 25 kilos of cocaine (street value: $7 million) that could get him killed. To secure and retrieve the drugs, Stanley Rubino (Dermot Mulroney), a natty weasel of a casino owner, has kidnapped Vincent’s 16-year-old son, Thomas (Octavius J. Johnson). But since Vincent is supposed to be delivering the kid to a high-school football game, he has to keep lying to his ex-wife (Gabrielle Union) about the son’s whereabouts (it beats saying, “Uh, sorry, he’s tied up in a kitchen closet somewhere »
