Yes No Maybe So: "Jersey Boys"

7 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

From Tommy Lee Jones directing himself and The Swank we turn to another far more accomplished actor-turned-director. Clint Eastwood has won four Oscars in his career from two films (Unforgiven & Million Dollar Baby) but the 83 year old director has had a bit of a rougher run than usual in recent years, critically speaking. He's back with Jersey Boys based on the Broadway jukebox hit about the Four Seasons.

Let's divvy up our reactions to the trailer.

Yes

• There will be a lot of music 

• Counterprogramming in the blockbuster realm of summer movies could help with critical reception so that's a smart move.

• Newish handsome actors in plum star-making position (if the movie is good and they ace it)

Clint went from two-a-year to radio silence for two years. Maybe the time off did him good? This is, the longest break he's ever taking from directing since between The Gauntlet (1977) and »

Clint Eastwood’s ‘Jersey Boys’ Trailer: Four Guys Under a Streetlamp

12 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The iconic Clint Eastwood turns 84 years old this year, and while he has largely retired as an actor – last seen in front of the camera in 2012′s Trouble with the Curve, the feature debut of his longtime first assistant director Robert Lorenz – as a director he has shown no signs of slowing down.

In the decade since the Best Picture Oscar-winning Million Dollar Baby, Eastwood’s diverse (and sometimes uneven) output included two great World War II films (Flags of our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima), a massive blockbuster hit with Gran Torino (over $269 million worldwide) and Invictus, which starred Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela.

The director’s first film since 2011′s biopic J. Edgar is an adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys, which follows the story of the legendary pop group Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.  Watch the first ...

17 April 2014 7:43 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

From director Clint Eastwood comes the trailer for the big-screen version of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys. The film opens in theaters on June 20th.

The film tells the story of four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic 1960s rock group The Four Seasons.

The story of their trials and triumphs are accompanied by the songs that influenced a generation, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Dawn,” “Rag Doll,” “Bye Bye Baby,” “Who Loves You,” and many more.

These classic hits are now being embraced by a new generation of fans through the stage musical, which has been running on Broadway for more than eight years and has also enjoyed successful tours around the globe.

Starring in the film, John Lloyd Young reprises his Tony Award-winning portrayal of the legendary lead singer of The Four Seasons, »

16 April 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Directed by: Wally Pfister Written by: Jack Paglen Main Cast: Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, Cillian Murphy, and others Past Oscar relations: Pfister won Best Cinematography for Inception and Morgan Freeman won Best Supporting Actor for Million Dollar Baby Here now we have the next article in this series on 2014 contenders hoping to compete for Oscar attention at the Academy Award ceremony in 2015. Next up is Dp turned filmmaker Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence, which hopes to more or less establish Pfister as the next Christopher Nolan (especially since he’s Nolan’s longtime cinematographer), though that may be a somewhat overly optimistic ambition. There’s clearly a bit of Nolan in Pfister though, so we’ll see. He’s got a top notch cast in place here, including Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman (a Nolan veteran), Cole Hauser, »

Watch: First Trailer For Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘The Homesman’

15 April 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The first trailer for Tommy Lee Jones’s upcoming western drama The Homesman has debuted online.

Overseeing acting, directing, writing and producing duties, Jones stars as George Briggs, a claim jumper spared from death by a pioneer woman (Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby) who makes a unique request in return; Briggs must usher three insane women on a journey from Nebraska to Iowa, braving the elements and avoiding thieves and dangerous figures along the way.

Based on Glendon Sarthout’s novel of the same name, the film is hotly tipped to be mentioned among the crop of films announced as part of the Cannes Film Festival 2014 line-up in the next few days.

The Homesman also stars Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit), William Fichtner (The Lone Ranger), Meryl Streep (August: Osage County) and James Spader, who is carrying the villain baton in next year’s super-sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, check the »

Romance and anger collide in 'Third Person' trailer -- Video

15 April 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Paul Haggis, Oscar-winning writer and director of films like Million Dollar Baby and Crash, sticks with romance in his latest, Third Person.

The film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Liam Neeson, Olivia Wilde, Adrien Brody, and Moran Atias, and is set in New York, Rome, and Paris. Everyone is paired off, and everyone is connected — think Love Actually, but dramatic. (Or Crash, minus racism?)

The film doesn’t have a release date for the U.S. yet, but premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Watch the international trailer — complete with lots of Japanese title cards! — below: »

New Photos From Wally Pfister’s Transcendence – Stars Johnny Depp

4 April 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Set in a not-too-distant future, Transcendence explores the very real possibility that humans—in our attempts to create a better, more efficient, more self-sustaining world through technology—can go too far. For emotions are not always positive: doesn’t a machine that has the capacity for kindness also have the capacity for menace?

Wally Pfister, a renowned cinematographer making his feature directorial debut on the film, states, “I was struck by the power and the weight of the ideas in this story, which I think are very much on people’s minds right now.”

Transcendence” proposes that we can achieve what’s been called singularity. Pfister comments, “As we define it for the film, singularity is basically the uploading of the human brain into a super computer: the duplication of every synapse, every neuron…every bit of activity in the brain goes into a machine, which then becomes sentient.”

2 April 2014 9:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Anthony Mackie has been impressing audiences ever since his feature debut in 8 Mile, along with roles in Million Dollar Baby, The Manchurian Candidate, Half Nelson, The Hurt Locker, Real Steel and last year's Gangster Squad and Pain & Gain. This weekend, the actor gets a boost into the stratosphere with his role as Sam Wilson, a.k.a. Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, opening in theaters April 4.

If you haven't heard of this highly talented actor until now, his performance will leave an indellible impression in this thoroughly impressive Marvel Phase Two sequel (clickHere to read my full review), as he joins forces with Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) to take on The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). I recently had the chance to speak with Anthony Mackie, where we discussed his first reactions to the script, the practicality of his Falcon suit, and how his catch phrase "cut the check" spread throughout the set. »

"Million Dollar Baby" Still Worth The Price

26 March 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

(Warning: The following review contains major plot spoilers for the film Million Dollar Baby.)

Million Dollar Baby opens at a Los Angeles gym, managed by world-weary boxing coach Frankie Dunn (Clint Eastwood) with the help of former boxer Eddie (Morgan Freeman). Among the aspiring fighters and lost souls that frequent the gym is Maggie (Hilary Swank), a dirt-poor waitress who shows up daily to train and convince Frankie to be her coach. After Frankie loses his fighter Willie and the chance at a title match, he agrees to take on Maggie, though he still insists that he “doesn’t train girls.” Frankie and Maggie grow closer as he trains her, developing a father-daughter bond, and both of them begin to let down their defenses. When a fight goes terribly wrong, however, Frankie and Maggie are forced to reexamine their lives, their future, and what they are willing to do for a person they love. »

Thn’s Greatest Actors Turned Directors

19 March 2014 1:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Some multi-talented actors take the knowledge and experience they gain from being on a movie set and turn it into a successful secondary career as a director. In Don Jon, Joseph Gordon Levitt places not only himself in the director’s seat, but also as the title role!

To celebrate the release of Don Jon on Blu-ray and DVD from 24th March we take a look at the greatest examples of actors who went behind the camera.

Clint Eastwood

Clint is undoubtedly a Hollywood legend giving us the iconic characters of the Wild West and Harry Callahan, a cop unafraid of taking the law into his own hands. Eastwood first plunged into the world of directing in 1971 with psychological thriller, Play Misty For Me and has since gone on to sit in the director’s chair over thirty times. It turns out he’s pretty good behind the camera with »

Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger Crush Stuff with a Tank

13 March 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

There are so many great things about this video.  1. Obviously, as per the title, it features Arnold Schwarzenegger crushing things with a tank. Random things, too. Everything from bubble wrap to weights to a copy of Million Dollar Baby (because it makes him cry).  2. The video was directed by one of our favorite up-and-comers, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, whose Kings of Summer kinda ruled 2013.  3. The entire purpose of the video is to announce a contest where the winner gets to fly to Los Angeles and crush things inside Arnold's tank with Arnold. That's like every dude's fantasy right there, and hey -- we bet you can even ask all the Kindergarten Cop questions you want. There are no limits to this amazing reward. 4. Finally, all of the...
