The Equalizer Blu-Ray Review

10 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Equalizer – a movie that desperately tries to spin Denzel Washington’s role as something wholly new and inventive, yet anyone familiar with one of Hollywood’s most established talents will know exactly the kind of performance Washington brings to Robert McCall. In what could essentially be a prequel to Man On Fire, director Antoine Fuqua creates a “different kind of superhero” by remaking a 1980s television series that originally starred Edward Woodward, finding a hero who lets his actions speak louder than words ever could. Denzel is a tight-lipped badass who knows his way around a home improvement store, but The Equalizer sets out to be something more than another action-centric thriller – an achievement that borders success long enough to hold our attention.

While updating the episodic source material, Fuqua does ensure that a subtle 80s vibe is kept in the sense of McCall’s Terminator-esque attitude. Denzel goes »

'Song One' Soundtrack Features Songs Written By Jenny Lewis, Tunes By Sharon Van Etten, Nina Simone, And More

3 December 2014 1:37 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jenny LewisRilo Kiley’s former frontwoman—has been everywhere this year. Her July album, The Voyager, was a critical hit, and she’s been busy touring the country ever since. No stranger to the screen (Lewis has performed on and for film and TV on multiple occasions, and voiced the assistant director in 2008’s “Bolt”), she co-wrote a number of songs with Johnathan Rice for the upcoming Anne Hathaway film, “Song One.” Upon hearing of her brother’s hospitalization, Franny (Hathaway) returns home and winds up striking up a relationship with her comatose sibling’s favorite musician (played by Johnny Flynn). Though Flynn actually performs on-screen and on the soundtrack, his songs were largely written by Lewis and Rice. (The pair writes, performs, and is known collectively as Jenny and Johnny.) Considering that “Song One” is a film about an indie musician, it’s no surprise that the music »

First Look: Al Pacino, Jennifer Garner, & More In ‘Danny Collins'; Ryan Adams Scoring The Film

13 November 2014 1:42 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You probably know the name Dan Fogelman. He's the Hollywood screenwriter behind such animated movies as "Cars," "Bolt," and "Tangled," but also family comedies like "Fred Claus," "Crazy, Stupid, Love," and “The Guilt Trip.” Like many screenwriters before him, Fogelman has made the leap to filmmaking. Originally titled “Imagine,” now known as “Danny Collins,” Fogelman's directorial debut follows an aging rock star who decides to change his life when he discovers a 40-year-old letter written to him by John Lennon. Al Pacino plays the titular Danny Collins, and the movie also stars Jennifer Garner, Annette Bening, Bobby Cannavale, and Christopher Plummer. Here’s the official synopsis: Al Pacino stars as aging 1970s rocker Danny Collins, who can't give up his hard-living ways. But when his manager (Christopher Plummer) uncovers a 40 year-old undelivered letter written to him by John Lennon, he decides to change course and »

The Equalizer Blu-Ray Will Blast Away The Competition On December 30th

11 November 2014 1:04 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quality be damned – you put Denzel Washington in an action-thriller, and audiences will turn out in droves. Such was the case this past September with The Equalizer, which received decent reviews but slayed the competition at the box office, having the biggest R-rated September debut of all time and eventually grossing $186.6 million. Now, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that it will be bringing The Equalizer to Blu-Ray just in time for the new year.

The Digital HD release will take place on December 16th, with the Blu-Ray and DVD both touching down two weeks later on December 30th. The Blu-Ray will boast a 1080p video transfer as well as an English DTS-hd Master Audio 7.1 track, a Uv code and a digital copy. The special features were also detailed.

Disney confirms release dates for next two animated movies

10 November 2014 10:56 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Zootopia and Moana are the next two films from Walt Disney Animation Studios. And now we know when to expect them...

With Big Hero 6 opening to big numbers in the Us over the weekend, the current winning strike of Walt Disney Animation Studios has continued. It's unlikely that Big Hero 6 will do Frozen numbers, but it's still set to be a big hit. And, to be fair, it's going to be a while before any animated film does Frozen numbers again.

Walt Disney Animation Studios, however, won't have a new film in cinemas in 2015, its first year without a new release since 2006. The studio has announced the dates for its next two features after Big Hero 6, and both of them are set to land in 2016.

First up will be Byron Howard's Zootopia. Howard, the co-director of Tangled and Bolt, is putting together a film about a »

Box Office: ‘Big Hero 6′ Races Past ‘Interstellar’ With $56.2 Million

9 November 2014 7:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Family audiences lifted “Big Hero 6″ over “Interstellar” and the fanboys and girls who turned out in force for Christopher Nolan’s space adventure in one of the fiercest box office match ups of the year.

Big Hero 6″ topped the charts with $56.2 million from 3,761 locations, continuing Walt Disney Animation Studios’ recent hot streak. After the success of “Frozen” and “Wreck It Ralph,” the division is no longer the also-run to Pixar, its corporate cousin.

“They have been on quite the roll,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s distribution chief. “They’re in a creative renaissance.”

Interstellar” scored a sizable $50 million from 3,561 locations, according to studio estimates. If “Interstellar’s” numbers hold, it will mark only the fourth time in history that two films have debuted to more than $50 million at the domestic box office, and each one of the previous occasions took place in the summer when ticket sales are at their highest. »

Review: Big Hero 6

7 November 2014 6:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Tim here. Something feels unmissably “off” about Big Hero 6, the 54th film in the Walt Disney Animation feature canon. It’s a film that wants to offer a little something for everybody, and succeeds, but this comes at the cost of feeling erratic and imbalanced, and curiously adrift. By now, we’re used to superhero origin stories that use up all the oxygen on setting up the heroes’ powers and briefly sketching in their personalities, but even by that standard, as Big Hero 6 started to move into what was unmistakably its endgame, I found myself sinking into outright dismay that this inconsequential scrap against a nondescript bad guy with wicked plans barely large than a city block was actually where the movie was headed, after its strong opening.

But that’s all part of the scheme: the filmmakers (including directors Don Hall, of the 2011 Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams, »

‘Big Hero 6′ Edging ‘Interstellar’ at U.S. Box Office, Could Hit $66 Million Weekend

7 November 2014 2:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Big Hero 6″ has taken the lead spot at this weekend’s box office, heading for a finish as high as $66 million — enough to top a still-impressive launch in the $56 million range by Paramount’s “Interstellar,” according to Friday estimates.

Early numbers show both titles performing up to lofty expectations with “Interstellar” winning Friday with $20 million, followed by around $18 million for “Big Hero 6.” Saturday projections were showing “Hero” jumping to $28 million with “Interstellar” coming in around $22 million.

The lowest estimates for “Big Hero 6″ were coming in between $55 million and $60 million so the race could turn out to be a nail-biter by the end of the weekend.

Both “Big Hero 6″ and “Interstellar” have budgets of $165 million; both have impressive critical reception with “Big Hero” at 90% and “Interstellar” at 72% on Rotten Tomatoes; and both are opening at over 3,500 U.S. locations.

Review: Big Hero 6

7 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

The Walt Disney Animation Studios team continues to knock hits out of the park, following up Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen with this weekend's adaptation of the Marvel comic Big Hero 6. Directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams (Bolt), Big Hero 6 is perhaps a first in presenting modern Asian-American leads as positive role models in a major Hollywood studio production for children. 

Young Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) is something of a robotics savant, hustling cash in the underground world of robot fighting a la Real Steel. He's encouraged by older brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney) to apply himself and join him in the advanced robotics program led by Roberto Callaghan (James Cromwell). There he meets fellow students Go Go (Jamie Chung), Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr), Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), and Fred (Tj Miller).

An unexpected disaster leaves Hiro reeling, and with the help of his friends and Baymax (Scott Adsit), his brother's helpful medical robot, »

42 upcoming comic book movies - and when to expect them

5 November 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

When’s that comic book movie coming out, with the ant-sized man? This and all similar questions answered in our comic book movie calendar.

Comic book fans of the world - were you planning on spending your spare cash on anything other than cinema visits and DVD box-sets for the next six years? Well tough, because Hollywood has other ideas.

Ever since Bryan Singer’s X-Men movie jump-started the comic book movie trend in 2000 (building on the stellar work of Richard Donner and Tim Burton in the decades prior), Fox, Sony, Warner Bros., Disney and Marvel Studios have all been repeatedly cashing-in on the resurgent popularity of capes, cowls and anything ending in ‘Man’.

Now, the sheer size of the comic book movie-making world has reached a critical mass. There are now seven such films (at least) slated for every year between 2016 and 2019. There’s also a few confirmed for 2020 already, »

Review: Disney's Heart-Tugging 'Big Hero 6'

4 November 2014 2:04 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is a reprint of our review from the 2014 Tokyo International Film Festival. The Playlist’s first ever visit to the Tokyo International Film Festival could scarcely have got off to a more appropriate start than with the World Premiere of the new film from Walt Disney Animation Studios: “Big Hero 6” from directors Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”).  After all, we’re a U.S.-based publication journeying across the world to experience our first Asian festival, and one of the overriding themes of the film is cross-cultural hybridization—it's set in a fictionalized melange of two iconic cities (see if you can guess which ones), the near-future metropolis of San Fransokyo. But there are also corporate cultures meeting here for the first time: this is a Disney film based on a Marvel comic book property, and while it’s definitely a Hollywood film, it »

Box Office: ‘Interstellar,’ ‘Big Hero 6′ Eye Record-Breaking Weekend

4 November 2014 1:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Interstellar” and “Big Hero 6″ collide at the multiplexes this weekend, igniting one of the fiercest box office battles of the year.

Both films are eyeing debuts in the $55 million range, with “Big Hero 6″ maintaining a slight advantage. Some analysts expect that the animated Walt Disney release will hit or even pass $60 million in domestic receipts.

“It’s finally a weekend to be excited about for moviegoers,” said Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations. “There hasn’t been this much fervor about going to the movies since ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ opened.”

If projections hold, it will be only the fourth time in history that two films have opened to north of $50 million on the same weekend. In each case, the films have opened in the summer and the two pictures have been a live action film and an animated one. The family friendly productions always ultimately prevailed. »

Hollywood’s New Leaders: Film

Richard Baker, 39

Exec VP, marketing and distribution, FilmNation Entertainment

Take one self-described nerd, mix marketing expertise gained at the Edinburgh Intl. Film Festival and the Weinstein Co., and hire him at FilmNation to oversee marketing plus distribution on Benedict Cumberbatch starrer “The Imitation Game.” Result? A record $7 million purchase of “Imitation” by TWC at Berlin for the likely Oscar contender. Title aside, Baker is a jack of many trades, having shaped the studio’s brand and art-directed the “Imitation” reel that secured its purchase. He recalls his first boss, an “eccentric chain-smoking old-school theater manager” who “never hid her mistakes.” “It’s Ok to ask stupid questions,” he says. “But only once.”

Gillian Bohrer, 36

Exec VP production, Lionsgate

Bohrer has only had to interview once for a job. When she felt ready to move up in the world, her company evolved from Summit Entertainment (where she started 11 years ago) to Lionsgate. »
