Did the 2007 Oscars get it right?

22 February 2017 11:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Feb 24, 2017

It’s Oscar weekend! But how well do the Academy Award choices of ten years ago hold up? We’ve taken a look...

The Academy Awards are the highest profile snapshot of what films are highly rated within 12 months of their release. What they can’t predict, however, is how well regarded their choices will age, and only time can tell you that. Which is why I thought it’d be interesting to go back a decade, and see how the winners of the 79th Academy Awards, handed out on February 25th 2007, stack up ten years on…

Best Picture: The Departed

Also nominated:

Babel Letters From Iwo Jima Little Miss Sunshine The Queen

At the time, there was a little bit of acceptance that The Departed was the Scent Of A Woman moment. That just as Al Pacino got rewarded for good work in a film that’s not his finest, »

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Film Critics Are Forced to Pick a Favorite — IndieWire Critics Survey

21 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

From “School Ties” to “Live By Night” and this weekend’s “The Great Wall,” Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have each — for better and worse — left a considerable and ever-increasing footprint in the cultural landscape. But while the world is wide enough for both of them, our hearts are not. And so, we forced our panel of critics to choose: Ben Affleck or Matt Damon?

There can be only one.

Brad Grey in Talks to Leave as Paramount Pictures Chairman

17 February 2017 1:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Paramount Pictures chairman and CEO Brad Grey is in talks with his bosses at Viacom to step aside and take on a new role with the company, a long-rumored shift that would come after five years of dismal results at the film studio, two sources confirmed Friday.

Grey’s possible departure comes after not only a long series of box office flops, far outnumbering hits, but also upheaval in the top executive ranks. Though a replacement has not yet been chosen, several sources said that it is possible the job will go, at least on a temporary basis, to Amy Powell, Paramount’s president of television and digital entertainment.

The talks between Grey and Viacom’s leadership, including CEO Bob Bakish, were continuing into the afternoon Friday and might not be resolved until Monday or Tuesday, according to one of the sources.

Grey, a former talent manager, has had a largely tumultuous run. »

The Great Wall review

16 February 2017 9:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Matt Damon stars in the hugely expensive The Great Wall, an American and Chinese co-production that fails to really impress.

While it's arguably insensitive to release a movie about a big wall given the current news cycle, this hasn't deterred Universal. The Great Wall, whose title and very being invites accusations of hubris, is as big, daft, paper-thin and transparently China-chasing as you expected it to be, but on the plus side it might make you feel like 3D’s finally had its day.

It takes a certain type of Western arrogance to make a play for the Chinese market through a fantasy reimagining of its greatest landmark’s history, but hey, this is Hollywood, baby. Consider the implications of a Chinese blockbuster pitched aggressively at American theatres, telling how Mount Rushmore was attacked by aliens but only survived because Michelle Yeoh defended it. But then: this is a Us-Chinese co-production, »

The unmade films of Kevin Smith

12 February 2017 6:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 13, 2017

Superman Lives, The Green Hornet and sadly now Clerks III: here’s a rundown of the Kevin Smith films we’ll probably never see...

Kevin Smith has always had to fight to get his films off the ground: he started his filmmaking career by maxing out multiple credit cards to self-finance Clerks, and more recently, legend has it, it was only Johnny Depp’s decision to come on board as a wacky supporting character that allowed Smith to secure financing for his walrus-centric horror flick Tusk.

Smith has, across his career, been offered several barmy jobs (he rejected a chance to pen Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian back in the 90s) and he’s also signed up for a lot of projects that never got past the script phase.

The latter camp of could’ve-beens is what we’re talking about today, following that news that Clerks III »

‘Toni Erdmann’ Director/Producer Maren Ade Will Not Be Involved With the English Remake

9 February 2017 11:03 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Recently, it was announced that last year’s popular German film “Toni Erdmann” would be remade in the English language, and Jack Nicholson and Kristen Wiig had been cast in the lead roles. An updated report, however, indicates negotiations are still ongoing, and — worse yet — director/producer Maren Ade will have no involvement in the remake, if it happens.

Assuming Paramount secures rights to the film and proceeds with the remake, Ade’s lack of involvement is concerning. As mentioned in a previous IndieWire discussion regarding the film’s casting, the quality of the remake will more than likely end up being determined by the director Paramount finds. As noted, Adam McKay (“The Big Short”) is currently producing the film, so he could step in as director and provide a distinct style, balancing the dramatic and »

Anthony Anderson Revels in Image Awards Hosting Gig

9 February 2017 9:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Anthony Anderson can’t get enough of the NAACP or its Image Awards.

The “Black-ish” star, who competed in the organization’s Act-so event as a kid growing up in Los Angeles, is hosting the NAACP Image Awards for the fourth consecutive year on Feb. 11, and hopes to do so again for at least two more years.

“I want to take it to their 50th anniversary in two years and really do it big. It means a lot,” he says of hosting, “especially being a product of the NAACP youth movement and a product of their Act-so competition.

“I did that representing Compton and Beverly Hills, and won the national competition when I was 17. So to have it come full circle now and host something that I grew up watching, and always wanted to be a part of, is just a beautiful thing.”

Besides playing Dre on “Black-ish,” Anderson serves as executive producer on the ABC hit »

Jack Nicholson will star in his first movie since 2010, an English-language adaptation of the Oscar-nominated German film Toni Erdmann, Variety reports.

Kristen Wiig will reportedly co-star alongside Nicholson in the remake of Maren Ade's 2016 comedy-drama, which will compete for Best Foreign Language Film at this year's Academy Awards. Toni Erdmann tells the story of an elderly man with a penchant for pranks and wearing disguises, who attempts to reconnect with his daughter, an aspiring, no-nonsense corporate consultant.

Mark Wahlberg Made the Best Face When Asked for His Super Bowl Prediction

Marky Mark’s clearly got his bets in already.

The staunch Patriots fan and Massachusetts’ de facto ambassador to the world was asked by Fox interviewer Cooper Manning if “the Falcons were going to do it today” at a pre-game interview. Obviously, Manning was engaging in some light trolling — if Mark Wahlberg’s love of all things Boston-adjacent wasn’t clear enough from his career, Manning might have taken a cue from the Patriots hat he had on for the interview. »

Alec Baldwin’s 10 Best Saturday Night Live Moments

23 January 2017 10:16 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on Time.com.

In just a few weeks, Alec Baldwin will return to Saturday Night Live to host for the 17th time, though he’s made waves this season with his ripe parody of Donald Trump, another broad-shouldered New Yorker who also doesn’t mince words.

Every time SNL’s host with the most drops in, the guy’s a total pro. The thing that makes the Baldwin, 58, effect reliably funny isn’t just his self-assured stature: he’s an experimental team player, and everyone around him is funnier for it.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Adds Hundreds of Theaters Ahead of Oscar Nominations

19 January 2017 5:57 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Studios is opting to more than triple the number of North American locations this weekend for Martin Scorsese’s historical drama “Silence” as Oscar nominations loom Tuesday.

Silence” will expand from 474 sites to 1,580 on Friday. It’s an optimistic move for a film that has failed to catch on with either awards voters or audiences so far.

The movie, set in 1640 Japan, has under-performed in a month of limited release with $3.8 million. During the Martin Luther King holiday weekend, “Silence” had a per-screen average of $5,010 — seventh-highest among the top 20 films.

Scorsese has been trying to make “Silence,” based on the Shusaku Endo novel about Jesuit missionaries, for 28 years. The film stars Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver as Jesuit priests who travel from Portugal to Japan to locate their missing mentor — played by Liam Neeson — and spread Catholicism even though the religion has been banned. It was budgeted between $40 million »

Managing Editor

Martin Scorsese has been a force at the Oscars for decades now with nine films earning some sort of recognition by the Academy but his latest showing, Silence, is looking to be completely glanced over. There much evidence pointing to this happening — lack of precursor nominations, opening weekend box office numbers, domestic box office performance thus far, and critical evaluations. Let’s take a deep dive into these aspects and see if there’s any saving grace for Silence this awards season.

At this point, with the Academy currently voting for the Oscar nominations, signs are pointing to Silence getting completely get shut out. The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg list the film as a frontrunner in any category — including the categories Scorsese’s films have been nominated in before. Those are best picture, »
