Mission: Impossible 6 May Already Be In Early Development

23 May 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Considering the high-octane action sequel Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which stars superstar Tom Cruise (Edge Of Tomorrow) alongside an ensemble cast that includes Jeremy Renner (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Simon Pegg (Star Trek), Ving Rhames (Mission: Impossible), Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules), and Alec Baldwin (The Departed), hasn't even opened yet, this new report may be a tad premature, but according to The Tracking Board, Paramount may already be in the early stages of developing Mission: Impossible 6, which is expected to round out the new trilogy that started with Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Cruise, J.J. Abrams, David Ellison, and Dana Goldberg are all back on as producers for the sixth film with Don Granger and Matt Grimm serving as executive producers and Elizabeth Raposo overseeing development. It's too early to say which cast members will be back, but the report claims that the full ensemble is expected to return, which »

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Gambler’ Still Wins on Blu-ray

14 May 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Browsing Dostoyevsky titles with consideration for proper roles for Mark Wahlberg, one might expect the Beantown hero to take on an adaptation of “The Idiot” before anything like “The Gambler.” After all, while Wahlberg has proven to be a diverse screen force - one who has well-grown past his Funky Bunch days - he often leans towards goofy men, or at least goofy men in goofy movies.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Such provides a nice surprise with the drama “The Gambler,” which finds him in a role the utilizes his charisma and acting skills, within a tale that doesn’t involve directors Michael Bay or Seth McFarlane. Playing a college professor who gambles his life away, the film is a showcase of his talents, like his compelling motormouth delivery, or a stable cool that he maintains even when his character is falling apart. Here’s a film that offers a scene of Marky Mark rambling about Camus, »

‘Black-ish’ Star Anthony Anderson Recalls His Nickelodeon Days

8 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anthony Anderson, who won an NAACP Image Award this year for his starring role on ABC’s “Black-ish,” has also earned kudos for his work on “Barbershop” and “The Departed.” But it was a part in the TV sci-fier “Alien Avengers” and in Nickelodeon’s Big Help-a-Thon that were his entre to Variety.

How did you get involved with Help-a-Thon?

I was on the Saturday-morning TV show “Hang Time.” When Nickelodeon asked me to come on, I jumped at that opportunity. It was about donating time to your community — and it was cool to just be a part of that movement.

How did you break into the biz?

I got an acting scholarship to Howard University, and then returned to L.A. I didn’t even have agents, but I would crash friends’ auditions. Casting director Jaki Brown-Karman saw something in me, and would call me for auditions. I was »

Time Machine: Pre-Ted Wahlberg - Bypassed for Best Actor Oscar - and Super-Model Wife on the Red Carpet

7 May 2015 1:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham on the Oscars' Red Carpet Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham at the Academy Awards Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham in a red-and-golden outfit are pictured above on the 2011 Academy Awards' Red Carpet, just outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories. Wahlberg, however, was a Best Supporting Actor nominee four years ago: for »

Every Best Picture Oscar Winner, Ranked From Worst to Best

6 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This week marks the 10th anniversary of the release of "Crash" (on May 6, 2005), an all-star movie whose controversy came not from its provocative treatment of racial issues but from its Best Picture Oscar victory a few months later, against what many critics felt was a much more deserving movie, "Brokeback Mountain."

The "Crash" vs. "Brokeback" battle is one of those lingering disputes that makes the Academy Awards so fascinating, year after year. Moviegoers and critics who revisit older movies are constantly judging the Academy's judgment. Even decades of hindsight may not always be enough to tell whether the Oscar voters of a particular year got it right or wrong. Whether it's "Birdman" vs. "Boyhood," "The King's Speech" vs. "The Social Network," "Saving Private Ryan" vs. "Shakespeare in Love" or even "An American in Paris" vs. "A Streetcar Named Desire," we're still confirming the Academy's taste or dismissing it as hopelessly off-base years later. »

Review: "Goodfellas" 25Th Anniversary Blu-ray Special Edition

2 May 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

In the humble opinion of this writer, Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas" is the best American movie of the 1990s; a virtually perfect witches brew of violence, betrayal, misguided loyalties and a so-called "code of honor" practiced by a select group of criminals who fancied themselves no worse than your average working stiff. The production, which grabs the viewer from that early, amazing tracking shot that goes inside the Copacabana,  boasts some of the finest acting ever seen in any film, with yeomen work by Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco, Paul Sorvino and, most notably, Joe Pesci in an Oscar-winning performance. Add to that some of the best casting ever seen in relation to supporting roles and you have a classic for the ages. 

Appropriately, Warner Home Entertainment has released a special 25th anniversary commemorative Blu-ray edition of the film. As outlined below in the official press release, »

Johnny Depp is Whitey Bulger in Black Mass' first trailer with Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Scott

23 April 2015 4:05 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In this September’s Black MassJohnny Depp returns to the life of crime as Whitey Bulger, a character light-years away from Mortdecai’s moustache-twirling eponymous art dealer, or the wacky world of his frequent collaborator Tim Burton.

Bulger is perhaps best known to film audiences as the real-life inspiration behind Jack Nicholson’s Boston mob kingpin in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed. If Jack’s Frank Costello is only the carbon copy of Bulger, then we should be in for a hell of a ride with Black Mass and the real deal.

“He could be charming. He could be ruthless. He was like a cobra—you never knew where he could strike,” says director Scott Cooper of Bulger, a regular on the FBI’s ten most wanted fugitives list.

Bulger isn’t the first notorious crime lord brought to the big screen by Depp. He portrayed the infamous drug trafficker George Jung in Blow, »

Black Mass Trailer: Johnny Depp’s Bold, Bald Portrayal of Whitey Bulger

23 April 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Just when we thought we didn’t like Johnny Depp anymore, here he is doing what appears to be quality work again portraying notorious gangster James “Whitey” Bulger in Black Mass. If he looks and sounds like Jack Nicholson, particularly in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed, that’s partly because that character was partly based on Bulger. He actually sounds more like Nicholson as Frank Costello and Ray Liotta’s aged Henry Hill in Goodfellas than the real Bulger. Unlike Depp’s other portrayal of a balding icon in the Hunter S. Thompson adaptation Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, here he may not be attempting full authenticity but rather one of his hodgepodge characterizations. Either way, that main steak dinner scene at the center of this first trailer is intense, and the extended showcase of Depp’s creepy-eyed performance piques our interest. As does the whole ensemble, which we barely get a look at here. Black Mass »

'Point Break' Remake First Pictures, Bracey and Ramirez are Utah and Bodhi

22 April 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string »

Jack Nicholson Facts: 25 Things You Didn't Know About the Iconic Actor

22 April 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Let's hope Jack Nicholson has a pleasant birthday on Wednesday, or at least a less disturbing one than the birthday when pal Hunter S. Thompson showed up outside his house, turned on a spotlight, blasted a recording of a pig being eaten alive by bears, fired several rounds from his 9mm pistol, and (when the terrified actor and his kids refused to open the door) left an elk's heart on the doorstep.

Nicholson turns 78 on April 22, and even though he hasn't been in a movie for five years, he still looms large in our collective imaginations. Younger viewers know him from his flamboyant performances in "The Departed," "The Bucket List," "Something's Gotta Give," and "Anger Management," but his older films remain ubiquitous on TV as well, including "As Good as It Gets," "A Few Good Men," "Batman," "The Witches of Eastwick," "Terms of Endearment," "The Shining," and "Chinatown."

The film stars Édgar Ramírez (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Carlos the Jackal”) as Bodhi, and Luke Bracey (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “November Man”) as Johnny Utah, along with Ray Winstone (“Noah,” “The Departed”), Teresa Palmer (“Warm Bodies”) and Delroy Lindo (“Sahara,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds”).

Oscar Isaac Can’t Quite Save William Monahan’s ‘Mojave’ [Tribeca Review]

At the end of Mojave, a devilish drifter played by Oscar Isaac poses a question to a jaded Hollywood star played by Garrett Hedlund: “Do you know yet which one of us is the bad guy?” That, I guess, is the question being posed by writer-director William Monahan (The Departed) in this odd thriller. But the […]

Tribeca Review: Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund Shine in 'Mojave,' But the Film Doesn't

20 April 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When a writer-director's latest film focuses on the mental turmoil and soul searching of a writer-director, one can only assume that there's some kind of autobiographical journey in play. William Monahan, who won and Academy Award for writing the screenplay for Martin Scorsese's "The Departed," does just that with his second directing effort "Mojave." While the story may be fantastical, its commentary on the Hollywood system is unequivocal. Unfortunately, the movie's erratic tone is a different story.  Garrett Hedlund plays Thomas, a rich and famous filmmaker who ventures into the Mojave Desert for either a bit of soul searching or to drink himself into obliteration (possibly both). Out there, he's stumbled upon by a creepy drifter named Jack (Oscar Isaac), who sports long hair and a fanny pack and carries a rifle. Jack shares the story of Jesus' temptation by the devil in the desert in a feeble attempt to prove his intellectual prowess. »

Garrett Hedlund and Oscar Isaac Play a Hollywood Star and the Devil in Tribeca’s ‘Mojave’ – But Who’s Worse?

18 April 2015 7:21 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Garrett Hedlund plays a rich, spoiled Hollywood star. Oscar Isaac plays a drifter who might be the devil himself. And in William Monahan‘s seriously twisted “Mojave,” which had its world premiere on Saturday night at the Tribeca Film Festival, it’s sometimes hard to tell which of them is worse. The directorial debut of the man who won an Oscar for writing Martin Scorsese‘s blood crime drama “The Departed,” “Mojave” takes noir to another level, mixing biblical and Shakespearean allusions, philosophical discussions and Hollywood satire with beatings, shootings, car wrecks and lots of thoroughly unpleasant behavior. It’s sometimes messy and overwrought and. »

Meryl Streep finally adds an MTV Movie Award to her over-stuffed mantle

12 April 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Meryl Streep has three Oscars and 19 nominations. Something she didn't have coming into this weekend? An MTV Movie Award. Well, she can cross that one off the ole' bucket list. Awards season's truly dominant champion took home a Golden Popcorn statue for Best Villain at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards Sunday. Her performance in the musical "Into the Woods" beat out Oscar winner J.K. Simmons ("Whiplash") as well as Jillian Bell ("22 Jump Street"), Peter Dinklage ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") and Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike ("Gone Girl"). While Streep may be a perennial fixture on the Oscar circuit, though, this was only her second MTV nomination to date. She was also nominated in the Best Villain category eight years ago for "The Devil Wears Prada," which also netted her an Oscar nomination. And a fun fact: She lost that year to fellow Oscar magnet Jack Nicholson ("The Departed"). More from the »

Five Nights At Freddy's Is Getting A Movie

8 April 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The indie horror title has worked up a deal with WB to become a movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, indie horror game Five Nights At Freddy's will join Minecraft in becoming WB's latest movie adaptation.

So far that is pretty much all we know. The film has Roy Lee (The Departed, The Lego Movie) and Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions (the upcoming Beetlejuice sequel) as producers, but so far no rumored cast, director, or writers are being hinted at.

The studio is said to be working closely with Scott Cawthon, the creator of the game, but that is about as much as we know. Perhaps Chucke E. Cheese's will be the set? Who knows.

The game revolves around a person taking place as a security guard and as the night goes on some creepy stuff happens. Eventually you will get jump scared by robotic characters and die. »
