The film is a narrative adaptation of the 2005 doco about the use of American political campaign strategies in Bolivia by President Clinton's former consultants. Bullock plays a retired American political consultant who often quotes famous people to help hammer home her talking points. [Source: The Wrap]

Vacation

Leslie Mann ("The Other Woman") is in negotiations to join the cast of the "Vacation" reboot at New Line. The film follows the now grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) who takes his family on a road trip similar to the one he, his parents and his sister took when he was young.

Mann would play his sister Audrey Griswold. »

Grading the Summer Forecast

10 September 2014 4:38 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Back in April, Box Office Mojo made specific box office predictions for 20 Summer 2014 releases. At that time, it looked like it was going to be a tough Summer to predict; that theory turned out to be more true than we had imagined.Half of our picks were wildly off, which is a significant increase over past years. These inaccuracies can be chalked up to a few poor assumptions made ahead of the season.First, the predictions were made based on the assumption that July had to be the highest-grossing month of the Summer. This was based on the fact that July has been the highest-grossing month of the year in each of the last 25 years. Remarkably, July wound up being the worst month of the Summer, and as a result July releases like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Deliver Us From Evil, Tammy, Planes: Fire & Rescue and Hercules were all noticeably overestimated. »

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 »

"Guardians" Tops Super Quiet Box-Office

7 September 2014 9:17 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The post-Labor Day weekend is always considered the worst weekend of the year for filmgoing.

This year, coming off one of the worst summers for domestic box-office in recent memory, the news was grim. The only new wide release opener, the faith-based "The Identical," bombed on opening and came in eleventh place with $1.9 million.

The Top Ten stayed relatively the same though with Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" retaining the top spot for a fourth weekend of its six weekends in release so far.

That tops the three No. 1 weekends that both "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The Avengers" scored, though domestically it's less than half that of "The Avengers" (under $300M vs. $623M).

Meanwhile "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" has been boosting its cinema count in recent weeks, probably in a final effort to push the film's domestic haul forward enough to break a record.

As of this weekend, »

X-Men: Days Of Future Past's Desperate Plan To Become The Series' Highest Grossing Film

7 September 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past has unquestionably been a huge success, and is currently ranked as the highest grossing X-Men movie worldwide, but there is a very important number one spot it has not yet achieved within the franchise: biggest domestic release. The movie has made $233,666,000 to date, but that number still falls short of $234,362,462, the total that Brett Ratner's X-Men: The Last Stand managed to bring in back in 2006. While you may think that the race is over, considering that Days of Future Past is entering its 16th week of release, the reality is that 20th Century Fox isn't giving up yet. Instead, the studio has given the movie a small but significant push in the last couple weeks, presumably in an attempt to try and claim a very important record for the marketing department. MoviePilot first picked up on the move, noticing that Fox »

In a Nutshell: Way Of The Wicked

7 September 2014 10:14 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

"When the sons of the fallen came upon the daughters of men they bore the way of the wicked." An opening gambit that reads infinitely more interesting than the tagline for Kevin Carraway's latest low-budget horror movie. 'Evil Never Dies', anyone? Is that a fact? Well, as the filmmakers so eloquently put it, evil never dies but film careers do. Remember when Christian Slater was the epitome of cool? Now he's playing heroic priests in inexplicably dull horror movies. Remember when Vinnie Jones had the world at his feet? Ok, so that's a bit of a stretch, but Vinnie Jones stars alongside Slater in the straight-to-dvd feature that riffs on The Omen and Carrie. Here's a twist for you. Christian Slater plays a holier than thou priest and Vinnie Jones plays the part of a doting father. He's still a cop of course but the role of »

10 Defenses Of Bad Movies That Don’t Work

6 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony

Movies are a lot like opinions on celebrity nude selfie leaks; there’s good ones and bad ones. And, like what you make of Jennifer Lawrence having her iCloud hacked, what makes an opinion good or bad varies from person to person; some people are quick to defend the exploited women, while others like X-Men: The Last Stand.

The entire online film journalism industry is built on conflicting opinions. Whereas in print reviews conventionally stand alone, the ability to comment and immediately publish responses means on the internet film criticism has become a group activity where everyone can measuredly make their points and openly see why others disagree. Or hurl abuse until the other side relents, it really depends; the latest Batman V. Superman set leak can be received with insightful curiosity or oh-my-god-why-is-Ben-Affleck-Batman.

Of course, conventionally there’s no such things as a wrong opinion – right to free »

5 Things X-Men: The Last Stand Got Right

6 September 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

It’s become shorthand among fans to declare X-Men: The Last Stand the worst film in the X-Men franchise, and not without reason: it’s second only to Origins: Wolverine in its blatant disregard for fanbase expectations or even remotely credible casting choices (seeing Vinnie Jones embody a half-baked Internet meme as the Juggernaut gives you an idea of this film’s sense of flare). It makes a mockery of the Dark Phoenix Saga; people infuriatingly die off-screen or without pretense; characters are introduced for the sake of novelty and never fleshed out while others disappear for long stretches, perhaps while their actors cash their checks and seek more gainful and less humiliating employment elsewhere. The point being, it doesn’t hold up well.

Except that for all the acidity foisted upon it, The Last Stand is not a film entirely devoid of quality. In fact, it manages throughout »

Marvel superhero movies that never got the greenlight

4 September 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From rock operas to Wes Craven to Dazzler, here's some Marvel movies that never quite made it...

Recently, we looked at the DC movies that never got the greenlight. We saw hordes of Superman movies which didn’t make it to screen, along with Batman film ideas and whole hosts of other DC heroes whose movies plummeted out of production (You can read that piece here).

On the other side of the superhero cinema fence, we have the seemingly all-encompassing, game-changing Marvel Cinematic Universe at the height of its powers, the X-Men franchise in rude health and the still-fresh memory of Spider-Man’s hasty reboot. You could be forgiven for thinking that not as many Marvel movies have struggled to get made as their DC counterparts. 

However, having delved once more into the ancient scrolls of cinema history (still better known as extensive Googling), we can confirm there’s plenty »

Kevin Feige Praises ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, Disses ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’

27 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Though it’s based on a Marvel Comics story, X-Men: Days of Future Past isn’t a Marvel Studios movie. But that doesn’t mean the president of Marvel Studios can’t enjoy it all the same. Kevin Feige, who helped produce the original X-Men trilogy, praised the latest installment as a “very good” way to kickstart the franchise. […]

Marvel Acting Odd Around "X-Men," "Big Hero 6"

26 August 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Marvel Studios is in a strange position in that it not only competes with rival DC, but also with itself to some extent. With several of its key properties owned by Sony and Fox, the studio's chief Kevin Feige often shows little interest or desire to help the properties they don't fully own (and thus don't make as much money on).

One example is Fox's "X-Men: Days of Future Past". Despite Marvel's complete lack of involvement in the film, the movie has become not just one of the biggest box-office hits of the year ($744.6 million worldwide) but also one of the most well-regarded wide releases so far in 2014.

That's a reaction even Feige is impressed by, and in a recent interview with Empire he reluctantly gives the film credit for returning the franchise to prominence:

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Praised by Marvel's Kevin Feige

26 August 2014 10:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox's X-Men: Days of Future Past is one of the biggest movies of the year, taking in $232 million at the box office, although that tally falls shy of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy ($251 million) and Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($259 million). However, X-Men: Days of Future Past has earned more globally ($744.6 million) than any other superhero movie this year.

The success of X-Men: Days of Future Past has even impressed Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, even though he had nothing to do with the movie whatsoever. During a recent interview with Empire, Kevin Feige revealed he's been thinking about how that movie helped bring the X-Men franchise back into prominence.

"I've been thinking about Days of Future Past a lot, which I had nothing to do with, in terms of the resurrection of a franchise. I think they did a very good job with that."

He went on to say that, »

The winners and losers of summer 2014

13 August 2014 2:37 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel soared while Adam Sandler floundered. Simon takes a closer look at the winners and losers of 2014's summer blockbuster season...

As another summer blockbuster season comes to an end, here's our annual reflection on what worked, what didn't, and who was left with egg on their face.

It's been a surprisingly strong summer season, in truth. Sure, there've been a few misses here and there, but we've found much to enjoy in many of the season's big releases, both in terms of widescreen spectacle and thought-provoking ideas.

So as the summer of 2014 winds to a close, here's what we took out of it... 

Marvel

Taking its usual place in the 'winners' section of articles like these is Marvel Studios, which opened and closed summer blockbuster movie season this year with considerable style.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier garnered strong reviews, and comfortably outperformed its predecessor at the box office. »

Old Man Logan: a comic that should be a movie

11 August 2014 6:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Is Old Man Logan the cinematic future for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine? Rob hopes so…

Despite playing a character that has lived for centuries in Marvel comics, Hugh Jackman is in the unfortunate position of gradually becoming too old to play Wolverine. Whilst it’s generally accepted that Wolverine does in fact age, it’s at a far more reduced rate than Hugh Jackman, who has no mutant powers (that we know of).

In X-Men: Days Of Future Past, this issue was faced (sort-of) head-on by making future Wolverine slightly grey-haired, like a cross between his younger self and Reed Richards, thereby suggesting that Wolverine’s anti-aging gene (which he could surely sell for amazing money to the cosmetics industry) was beginning to let up in the X-Men movie universe’s future timeline. A decent effort was made to hide the age of Hugh Jackman’s 1970s Wolverine, and, to be honest, »

Superb Phoenix Art by Tu Bui

This beautiful piece of X-Men fan art comes from Tu Bui, and it features Phoenix. This is a great character in the Marvel universe, and it would be great to one day see the character brought to life on the big screen in the right way. I know she was introduced in X-Men: The Last Stand, but c'mon… that doesn't count.  »

33 Incredible Movie Inspired Tattoos

6 August 2014 5:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Pinterest

Tattoos are all the rage nowadays. All it takes is to flick through a handful of channels on your television to realise that tattoos are no longer the reserve of sailors, soldiers and prostitutes.

Part of the reason for the boom in popularity is because the technical skills and design abilities of tattoo artists has become more sophisticated with each passing year. Quality tattoo artists are capable of designing and executing pieces of art relating to a subject which their client wants to celebrate on their skin.

These skilled artists allow their clients to express themselves with something which will be with them forever. People love to dedicate a space on their skin to represent something which they love so it should come as no surprise that many have chosen to adorn their bodies with art which celebrates their favourite movie. Whether it be of a character, quotation or an entire scene, »

Good Gods: Mythology Movies for the Whole Family

5 August 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

  Hollywood loves bringing big brawny Greek warriors to life, especially the iconic hero Hercules. Consider this: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Ferrigno and Twilight’s Kellan Lutz have all flexed their muscles as the demigod on the big screen. And in Hercules, in theaters now, manly man Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson takes on the role under the direction of Brett Ratner (of Rush Hour and X-Men: The Last Stand fame). While these movies can be great fun for grown-ups and teens who love a good Greek tragedy, some adaptations aren’t ideal for younger viewers. Those ancient Greeks could get pretty dark, what with the depictions of murder, sacrificial acts and beheadings of hydra. So if your kids loved the latest Hercules, or they’re too little for the PG-13...
