I Met Thelma Schoonmaker at the TCM Film Festival

19 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Our coverage of the TCM's 2014 festival in Los Angeles wraps with Anne Marie on legendary editor Thelma Schoonmaker

Thelma in the editing bay...

Thelma Schoonmaker is surprisingly calm. Not just calm, calming. As I sat listening to her twice at Tcmff--first at the introduction for A Matter Of Life And Death, next at an hourlong interview--i marveled at the three-time Oscar winning editor's stillness. Considering she is the preferred collaborator of Martin Scorsese, an infamously energetic director, one would think she'd need reservoirs of energy to tackle the boxing matches in Raging Bull or the tense chases in The Departed.

Schoonmaker wasn't at Tcmff to speak about herself, though »

DiCaprio + Iñárritu = ???

16 April 2014 6:28 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I am not, in any way according to the Internet, a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. Never mind that I saw him first and was proselytizing about his gift for at least ten years after seeing the double whammy of This Boy's Life and What's Eating Gilbert Grape in 1993. Alas, I have no proof of this fact as I was not writing for the internet at the time. But, it is true that I began to sour on him starting with Gangs of New York (2002) the first obvious sign that he was quite fallible indeed and that maybe he needed to be, you know, directed, rather than coddled by the auteurs he blesses with his unusually foolproof bankability. I may be the only person alive who thinks his relationship with Martin Scorsese, The Departed aside, has not been good for developing his once prodigious talent. But at the risk of angering his devout legion again, »

Brad Pitt and 'Animal Kingdom' director David Michod join forces on 'The Operators'

14 April 2014 8:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'm still getting used to the fact that Brad Pitt is now an Oscar-winning producer -- one wonders whether, like Michael Douglas before him, the acting award will come later, Either way, the man's no slouch in the off-screen department: aside from "12 Years a Slave," the man's production credits range from "The Departed" to "Kick-Ass" to "The Tree of Life" to the (likely Cannes-bound) HBO feature "The Normal Heart." And now "The Operators," to which Pitt is also attached to star as Us military general Stanley McChrystal. As is often the case on his producing projects, Pitt's taste in collaborators is pretty forward-thinking: David Michod, the Australian director of the bristling, Oscar-nominated crime drama "Animal Kingdom," will write and direct the project. Michod's second feature "The Rover," a post-apocalyptic thriller starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, is due for release this summer, and tipped to appear in the Cannes Film Festival lineup later this week. »

Leo DiCaprio -- I Have a Right to Do Movies About Inbred Hillbillies

14 April 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Leo DiCaprio thinks the guys claiming his company defamed them by calling them "inbreds" in the movie "Out of the Furnace" may not be inbreds ... but they're stupid for suing.DiCaprio's production company just asked a judge to toss the lawsuit filed by 17 members of the Ramapough Lunaape Nation -- a tribe in the Ramapo Mountains of New Jersey.The tribe's beef -- the villain of the movie, Harlan DeGroat, played by Woody Harrelson, shares »

'Urban Legends: Final Cut' Deserves Another Chance, and Here’s Why...

14 April 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

I’m not going to delude myself and think that we’re going to start a revolution, and that Urban Legends: Final Cut will somehow surpass Halloween as the better film. But just hear me out; it’s a much better film than people have ever given it credit to be.

I was surfing around Netflix and saw it had been added; I own the DVD but as is with our age of digital gratification I popped it on anyways. As the credits started I remembered back to when I first saw it. The year was 2000, and I was looking through the DVD selection at my local Ames; a chain long since extinct, and I spotted it. I didn’t even have internet at the time- (go ahead and judge), and had heard nothing about a sequel to Urban Legends. I bought it sight unseen after reading the description, for a modest $24.99.

Ladies and gentlemen it is time to say goodbye to your summer because Netflix has announced the return date of Hemlock Grove!

Hemlock Grove follows the odd goings on in the fictional town of Hemlock Grove, Pennsylvania. It stars Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgård, Landon Liboiron and Dougray Scott.

Executive Producer Eli Roth has been speaking out about the new season, saying:

“Netflix has been an incredible partner, and whenever we wanted to take the story in a dangerous direction, they encouraged us to go even further – into a scarier, darker, and sexier place. »

Watch: Justin Theroux Says the Departed are the 'Lucky' Ones in New Trailer for Damon Lindelof's 'The Leftovers'

14 April 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While Martin Scorcese's Oscar-winning film "The Departed" dealt with many issues related to the dearly departed, I don't think they ever described them as the "lucky" departed. Not so for Damon Lindelof's new HBO series, "The Leftovers," starring Justin Theroux as one of the many citizens of Earth left behind after the Rapture. "To depart is different than anyone supposed," Theroux says in voiceover. "And luckier."  Granted, the new show from writer/executive producer Damon Lindelof ("Lost") is dealing with slightly different circumstances than Matt Damon & Co., but as they say in Bean Town, "Whose cah we takin' to the funahal?" (or something like that). The new nearly-minute long spot comes after news of the show going on a two week hiatus. With six episodes already in the can, the delay won't alter "The Leftovers'" premiere date (HBO's not giving up the plum placemet post-"Game of Thrones »

Why Ray Winstone Is Perfect for That 'Point Break' Remake (Clips)

9 April 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Brit character actor Ray Winstone is in talks to star in the tussled-about "Point Break" remake as FBI agent Angelo Pappas, a role Gary Busey immortalized in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 homoerotic cult classic about bank-robbing surfers. He'll be joining Gerard Butler, currently cast as wave-chasing, surfer-gang leader Bodhi (originally played by Patrick Swayze). Aussie hunk Luke Bracey will star opposite Butler and Winstone as FBI rookie Johnny Utah (played Keanu Reeves in Bigelow's film). Winstone induced shivers in 1999 as a walking picture of paternal evil in Tim Roth's indie "The War Zone," but you've also seen him skulking along the fringes of many mainstream and indie films, including "The Departed," "Cold Mountain," "Hugo," "Sexy Beast" and as a descendent of Cain in "Noah."  Across the pond, he's been a film and TV mainstay for decades, with two BAFTA noms under his belt, accolades from the British Independent Film Awards »

Second Opinion – Noah (2014)

8 April 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Noah, 2014.

Directed by Darren Aronofsky.

Starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Nick Nolte, Mark Margolis and Kevin Durand.

Synopsis:

A man is chosen by his world’s creator to undertake a momentous mission to rescue the innocent before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the wicked from the world.

This is a film review. I’ve not read The Bible, I’m not a religious person in the slightest although I have no issue in any way, shape or form with those who are. If you watch Noah because you have even the vaguest interest in the Bible story on which it is based, and wish to discuss, argue, or debate the merits of the film based on this, that is entirely your prerogative. I, however, watched it solely because it is the latest film from director Darren Aronofsky, a film maker I admire greatly, »

Wolf Pack: The Making of The Wolf of Wall Street

2 April 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with film editor Thelma Schoonmaker, production visual effects supervisor and second unit director Rob Legato, and first assistant director Adam Somner as well as visual effects supervisors Joe Farrell and Marko Forker about travelling around the world with Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio without leaving New York City.... 

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed) is based on the memoir of high living stockbroker Jordan Belfort who was sent to prison for stock manipulation.  “It's interesting that Scorsese told his casting director, Ellen Lewis, right from the beginning that the film would be filled with humour,” states Thelma Schoonmaker who has edited every Martin Scorsese movie since winning an Oscar for Raging Bull (1980).  “But most members of the crew were surprised by how funny the scenes were as they watched them being shot.   So Scorsese knew what he was doing right from the beginning, »

Zac Efron Will Star in and Produce John Grisham's 'The Associate'

2 April 2014 5:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nearly six years after it was first set up at Paramount Pictures, the adaptation of John Grisham's 2009 novel The Associate has found new life, with Zac Efron coming on board to star and produce.

Shia Labeouf was originally attached to star back in 2008, with director Tony Scott circling the project in 2010. William Monahan (The Departed) previously worked on the script, but Red Wagon Entertainment is currently seeking writers before bringing the project to the studios.

The story centers on a young Yale Law School graduate (Zac Efron) who is blackmailed by a group of criminals and forced to take a job at the world's largest law firm. He must spy on their work in settling a contract dispute between two of the world's biggest defense contractors worth billions of dollars.

Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher, who are both behind the young adult novel adaptation Divergent, are producing through their Red Wagon Entertainment company. »

Zac Efron to Lead & Produce Adaptation of Grisham's 'The Associate'

2 April 2014 4:07 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

An adaptation of John Grisham's 2009 legal thriller The Associate has been in the works since before the book was even published. Back in 2008, Shia Labeouf was attached to lead the project with The Departed scribed William Monahan slated to script and the late director Tony Scott once flirting with getting behind the camera. Now it appears development has started all over with Divergent producers Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher throwing their weight behind the film, not to mention Zac Efron producing through his Ninjas Runnin' Wild banner (fresh off That Awkward Moment) and also stepping up for the vacant lead.  For those who haven't read the book, it follows a student (Efron) who's about to graduate from Yale Law School when he's manipulated into accepting a job at a prestigious law firm and given privileged information about a multibillion-dollar lawsuit. THR says a writer still needs to be found though, »

Full Cast List Is The Cherry On Jennifer Aniston’s Cake

2 April 2014 4:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s always room for Cake – especially now that the wider cast list of this upcoming independent film has been announced. The comedy-drama from director Daniel Barnz (Won’t Back Down) will soon be heading before the cameras with Jennifer Aniston in the lead role, but with a varied resume – swinging wildly from the tedious Bounty Hunter to the excellent Good Girl – an Aniston movie can go either way. Ultimately, it’s the script and supporting cast that determines which end of the quality spectrum the film swings toward.

In that regard, things are looking very good for Cake. The story sees a woman (Aniston) become fascinated with the suicide of a member of her chronic pain support group. Digging deeper into the dead woman’s life, she develops a relationship with her widower, while dealing with her own tragedies. Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) will play the role of the suicidal group member, »

Parental Advisory: Mark Wahlberg’s Most Kid Unfriendly Roles

29 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

After starring in the harrowing true story of Navy SEALs ambushed in Afghanistan, Mark Wahlberg is ready for a slightly less stressful popcorn flick. He’ll next be seen in Michael Bay‘s Transformers: Age of Extinction, leading the charge for the latest installment of the popular franchise. It’s a project he’s excited about, and one he plans to show his children. “I haven’t really done anything that was kid friendly,” Wahlberg told People this week. “It was really the best of both worlds, because [Transformers] was something they’d be interested in and something I hadn’t done before.” Something else Ella, Michael, Brendan and Grace can enjoy? The 2014 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, which their dad happens to be hosting. But considering the actor has played a porn star, a drug addict and a vengeful cop (among other things), how many of his films »
