If 'The Interview' were a prestige pic, how would this have gone?

17 December 2014 3:27 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

No one is arguing that The Interview is a great film—or, having talked to some people who have seen it, even a good film. But over the past few weeks, it has stumbled into being a capital-i Important Film in spite of itself—one people should have the option to see in a theater, on its usual release day, like any other film that isn’t causing an international incident. But how would the conversation around The Interview have been different if Seth Rogen and James Franco's movie were a prestige pic? If it were more like Hotel Rwanda »

24 October 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Intl. Medical Corps is a nonprofit organization that provides health care training and relief programs in countries that have just experienced natural disease or an outbreak of disease.

Nancy Aossey, president and CEO of the Intl. Medical Corps, introduced Burns and Friedman and outlined the relationship Lionsgate has with the first responders.

Lionsgate uses its significant global reach to bring life to the individuals who overcome adversity to build a better future,” Aossey said. She cited Lionsgate movies that have shown the human impact of a natural disaster or war, such as “Hotel Rwanda.”

Reese Witherspoon, Corey Stoll and 'The Good Lie' Cast Talk Making 2014's Most Worthwhile Film

3 October 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Good Lie is titled after the lies in Huckleberry Finn, the type of lie that is a lie for the greater good, even if lying is wrong. The Good Lie, the movie,  has a small opening this weekend in under 500 theaters and will hopefully begin to slowly expand to more theaters with it’s poster of smiling Reese Witherspoon’s head miraculously floating over an African desert. The poster for The Good Lie and the trailer for The Good Lie are, themselves, actual good lies because what looks like The Blind Side but with Reese Witherspoon is not, instead it’s one of those movies that will be shown to our children in school.

You remember the type of movie I’m talking about: you have a substitute or your teacher got a little ahead in the lesson plan or you have a half-holiday day so the class gets »

The Impact of the Toronto Audience Award on the Oscar race

16 September 2014 5:46 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, the Toronto International Film Festival gave out its extremely prestigious Audience Award, a prize that’s often considered to be a harbinger of future Oscar success. To one degree or another, almost all movies that win the prize tend to receive some level of Academy Award attention. The award is highly sought after and a number of films were thought to be in the running at this year’s Toronto Film Festival. Well, for those of you who don’t know which flick took the prize, I’ll save that for a little later in the article, but right now I want to get into what the Audience Award means and which titles were thought to be eying it up in a big way. Historically, the Audience Award at Toronto has really been a signifier for the Academy, especially of late. The award was first given out »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Good Lie’

7 September 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A good lie, according to Huckleberry Finn, is a prevarication where the “rightness” of the outcome excuses the “wrongness” of having fibbed in the first place. to an uplifting and overly earnest picture that isn’t really about her character at all — nor should it be. But if that mistruth helps spread the word about the Sudanese situation, earning Warner Bros. a pretty penny in the process, how wrong can it be?

The thing is, we miss Reese. Over the past decade, the actress has grown too scarce on the bigscreen, and though “Wild” promises to be her big awards vehicle this year, the advertising campaign for “The Good Lie” suggests a chance to see America’s sweetheart in feisty “Erin Brockovich” or “The Blind Side” mode, demanding, “Who do I have to screw around here to see a goddamn immigration supervisor?” in her most sexually empowered redneck drawl.

Dench Joins Cumberbatch In "Richard III"

21 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Judi Dench is set to play Cecily, Duchess of York opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of The BBC's upcoming TV adaptation of Shakespeare's "Richard III".

The telemovie will be part of the second series of "The Hollow Crown," following on from 2012's successful four telemovie adaptations of Shakespeare's historical plays. That series, starring the likes of Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston and Ben Whishaw, adapted "Richard II," "Henry IV Part 1," "Henry IV Part 2" and "Henry V".

"The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses" will adapt the other famed historical tetralogy of Shakespeare - the three parts of "Henry VI" and "Richard III". One difference this time out is that the telemovies will be trilogy with "Henry VI" being shrunk from a three-part play into a two-part telemovie.

Tom Sturridge ("On the Road," "The Boat That Rocked") has been cast as Henry VI in both parts of that production. »

Could Replacement Actors Keep the Avengers Franchise Going After the Original Cast Leaves?

12 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While Marvel’s comic book adaptations are a hot commodity just now, the cast of Marvel/Disney’s Avengers franchise are running out of movies on their contracts and have dropped hints that they are not going to play their respective hero characters beyond their current commitments.  Will Marvel and Disney let the franchises die after the cast leaves or will a new cast take over?

Movie studios don’t like to let go of a good thing. They like to find ways to keep a lucrative franchise going, even without the original cast. For instance, when the younger cast of X-Men: First Class replaced the stars of the original trilogy; or when the Star Trek: Next Generation cast took over the Star Trek franchise from the classic Trek crew. Since Marvel/Disney’s the Avengers was a colossal hit and the sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron is expected »

First look at Don Cheadle as Miles Davis

8 July 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Miles Ahead, the upcoming Miles Davis biopic directed, starring, and co-written by Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda, Iron Man 3), starts its shoot this week in Cincinnati after a decade in development. The long-anticipated film about the legendary trumpeter – often considered the definitive jazz soloist of the 20th century – will feature Cheadle as Davis with Ewan McGregor (Star Wars) and Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man) in supporting roles.

With full rights to Davis’ discography and a blessing from the Davis family, Miles Ahead has everything going for it. It has been a labour of love for Cheadle, who is a longtime fan of Davis and has learned how to play the trumpet for the film (though all the trumpet in the film will be, of course, Davis himself).

Below, we’ve compiled a few snapshots from behind the scenes of Miles Ahead with Don Cheadle – including a bonus shot from Ewan McGregor, »

Don Cheadle Is Completely Unrecognizable In Miles Davis Biopic First Look

7 July 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Behold: Don Cheadle Is Miles Davis. The dapper actor who earned an Oscar nod for his portrayal of a noble hero in Hotel Rwanda; titillates and terrorizes in House of Lies; and kicked some serious bad guy ass in Iron Man 3 is now preparing to play one of the coolest American musicians ever in Miles Ahead. And the pic above is our first look. EW shared this pic, which has Cheadle posing with head bowed and a trumpet engraved with the name of Miles Ahead's hero, the one and only Miles Davis. Cheadle is making his directorial debut on the biopic that is now in production, sharing his schedule with Avengers: Age of Ultron, which demanded he reprise his role as Colonel James "War Machine/Iron Patriot" Rhodes. Cheadle also contributed to the screenplay, which he co-wrote with Steven Baigelman (Feeling Minnesota), Stephen J. Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson »
