Exclusive: The Chiodo Brothers Talk Killer Klowns, Movie Making, and More!

3 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

While attending the Bizarre AC II in Atlantic City, we had a chance to chat three-on-one with Killer Klowns from Outer Space creators, the Chiodo Brothers, and the subjects ranged from their most famous film to contemporary genre cinema and lots more.

Settle in because the three of them, Stephen, Edward and Charlie, covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time. They have thick Bronx accents and talk very fast with great excitement and enthusiasm but without the hand gesticulation you would expect from a bunch of New Yorkers. Or perhaps the space in the booth was too tight to really see that kind of display in action.

Each brother built upon the other’s remarks, fast from topic to topic. Stephen added pointed conversation when necessary, but he, much like me, sat back while Edward and Charlie took center stage. Along with Killer Clowns from Outer Space of course, »

The Marvel Movie Model: Auteurs Need Not Apply

24 May 2014 3:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the Marvel Movie Model….

Edgar Wright quitting Ant-Man over ‘creative differences’ might be the most predictable cinematic event of 2014.  A lot of people saw this coming, and frankly it’s a bit disappointing.  But let’s be real honest here: Marvel doesn’t want auteurs or unique voices helming their films. They’re not looking for great, passionate directors who will fight to see their particular vision brought to life.   They’re looking for line towing, rank and file directors who play by the rules and fall into line with a single snap of the fingers.  Marvel established a principle behind their creative teams that almost falls into the strategies of sabermetrics highlighted in the movie Moneyball: if you can’t afford (or want to pay) big name talent, you go look for those players that can get on base.

That aptly describes the vast majority of »

Chef – The Review

22 May 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

This new release about a highly successful artist returning to his more modest roots in order to re-ignite his passion for his craft could not only apply to the main title character, but to the man who plays him on-screen (who’s also the screenwriter, co-producer, and director). Over the past 20 years Jon Favreau’s had quite an interesting Hollywood career. The then struggling young actor channeled his career frustrations (and the night life exploits of his posse’) into a screenplay that became the low-budget indie hit of 1996 Swingers. From there he called the shots behind the camera on the equally independent Made and soon graduated to bigger studio fare, the holiday-themed smash Elf and the kiddie Sf tale Zathura: A Space Adventure. Then came the man in gold and red. Favreau helmed the initial entry from Marvel Studios, Iron Man and its sequel, which were box office behemoths. But his next studio foray, »

Jon Favreau's 'Chef,' Hitting Theaters This Weekend, Is Scruffy Indie Crowdpleaser

7 May 2014 9:43 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In real life Jon Favreau is a huggable bear of man who wears his insecurities on his sleeve. So why be surprised when his return to scruffy indie filmmaking, "Chef," shows the same qualities? An 8-page outline came to the writer-director in a flash. He showed it to his friends and they encouraged him to write a full script, which he then enlisted his agency CAA to help finance. Many of his "Iron Man" pals--Robert Downey, Jr. and Scarlett Johansson have small roles--helped him out for SAG minimum, along with ace comedic actors Dustin Hoffman, Bobby Cannavale, Oliver Platt, and John Leguizamo.  "Nobody got paid anything," said Favreau at this past SXSW's Paramount opening night premiere. "This felt like it wanted to happen. Every once in a while it clicks."  Born in Queens, Favreau started out making his living as a funny character actor and occasional screenwriter and director »

How did 'Community' and 'Arrested Development' get the Russos to 'Captain America 2'?

3 April 2014 1:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When you look back at it, Marvel Studios has almost always taken the unconventional route when it comes to picking the directors for their movies. When most Hollywood studios would select the proven blockbuster director, indie darling or recent Oscar nominee looking for a payday Marvel has always gone in a different, um, direction. It started with Jon Favreau on "Iron Man." The former "Swingers" star and "Elf" helmer was coming off "Zathura," a critically lauded kids flick that was a bomb at the box office. Kenneth Branagh, on the other hand, had been in director's jail following four misfires in 10 years. "Thor" turned out to be his best film since 1996's "Hamlet." Joss Whedon was a geek icon for his legendary TV show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and had major comic book cred after dabbling in writing Astonishing X-Men," but studios weren't banging down his door after "Serenity" fizzled in theaters. »

Jon Favreau Offers ‘Jungle Book’ Details; Still Wants to Make ‘Magic Kingdom’

11 March 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Actor/filmmaker Jon Favreau has gone through multiple creative phases in his career, from crafting free-wheeling adult indie fare (Swingers, Made) to churning out wide-eyed family entertainment (Elf, Zathura: A Space Adventure), before he made a splash in the world of genre blockbusters with Marvel StudiosIron Man, which he then followed in fairly rapid succession with Iron Man 2 and the western/sci-fi mashup Cowboys & Aliens.

Most recently, Favreau took a break from Hollywood tentpoles in order to return to his personal indie roots, with the dramedy Chef, which premiered this past week at the 2014 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference and Festival. (Watch a clip from the movie ...

Jon Favreau’s ‘Chef’: First Look and Early Buzz

10 March 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When Jon Favreau released the first Iron Man, he was still seen as an exciting young director on his way up despite having credits like Made, Elf, and Zathura. Then came Iron Man 2 and Cowboys & Aliens, and his name started to elicit more eye-rolls than smiles. But at SXSW this year, he unveiled […]

Chef: SXSW Review

7 March 2014 10:25 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Austin — A small-scale personal-growth comedy from a filmmaker recently known for SFX blockbusters, Jon Favreau's Chef enlists a top-shelf cast for a film as earnestly emotional as Swingers and his family-centric adventure Zathura. The story, revolving around food but really concerned with any sort of personal creative drive, may lack the ingredients of a mainstream comic hit; but audiences drawn in by its franchise-worthy cast will likely respond warmly. It wouldn't take much effort to parse this film's back-to-your-roots storyline as a response to the critical and commercial failure of Favreau's

Check out the first clip from Jon Favreau's superhero-less comedy-drama Chef

7 March 2014 7:49 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Jon Favreau was best known for indie roles in movies like Made and Swingers before he became known as the man who ushered in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Iron Man. As a director, Favreau has ventured from indie to big budget fare like Elf, Cowboys And Aliens and Zathura, but his first post-Iron Man 2 directorial effort will feature nothing in the way of science fiction, comic books, or CGI effects. Premiering at the SXSW Festival, Favreau's Chef is a very different movie than we have »

Will Smith in Early Talks for Brilliance

24 February 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

I’m always happy to report another sci-fi novel making its way to the big screen and the latest is Marcus Sakey’s novel, Brilliance. This adaptation will be coming to us courtesy of Legendary Pictures and director Julius Onah, whose directing credits have mostly included short films.

THR is reporting that once Julis Onah signed on to the project, Will Smith was quick to follow and is in early talks to star as Nick Cooper. For those of you not familiar with the book, here’s a synopsis.

In Wyoming, a little girl reads people’s darkest secrets by the way they fold their arms. In New York, a man sensing patterns in the stock market racks up $300 billion. In Chicago, a woman can go invisible by being where no one is looking. They’re called “brilliants,” and since 1980, one percent of people have been born this way. Nick Cooper »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2005

15 January 2014 7:12 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 16 Jan 2014 - 06:20

Another 25 unsung greats come under the spotlight, as we provide our pick of the underappreciated films of 2005...

It's underappreciated films time again, and this week, we delve deep into the year 2005 - a collection of months dominated by the likes of Star Wars: Episode III, another Harry Potter, Steven Spielberg's War Of The Worlds, Peter Jackson's King Kong, and CG family movie Madagascar.

It was also the year Pierce Brosnan formally bowed out of his role as James Bond, and Martin Scorsese's The Aviator was hyped to win the director his first Oscar, but didn't. Still, the contents of this list received nothing like the acclaim of The Aviator, nor the financial pickings of a Star Wars or Harry Potter. As ever, we've focused on 25 films which we think deserve a bit more love.

So with apologies to »

Spotlight On…David Koepp – Co-Writer Of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

7 January 2014 12:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Each month, we turn our spotlight onto the unsung artists behind the biggest new movie releases. This month: David Koepp, co-writer of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

A graduate of UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television, David Koepp has a name that is familiar to moviegoers around the world, although they may not realize why. It’s one of those names that crops up regularly, on all kinds of film posters and credit rolls, in all sorts of capacities. He has worked as a Producer, Actor, Second Unit Director, Assistant Director, Director, Writer and even Songwriter, on an epic roster of films that would make even Spielberg’s toes curl – though he had a hand in some of them.

While his resume shows him to be a man of many talents, it is screenwriting that has made his name internationally recognizable. David Koepp is one of the most prolific screenwriters in Hollywood, »
