Leonardo DiCaprio May Star In Drug Epic The Cartel, Get The Details

23 July 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the last few years, Leonardo DiCaprio has had a mixed run playing law enforcement roles - as the amazingness of both Martin Scorsese's The Departed and Shutter Island are unfortunately counterbalanced by the snore-fest that is Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar. Of course, that doesn't mean his time wearing a badge is necessarily over, as new reports are suggesting that he could wind up taking the lead role as DEA agent Art Keller in a big screen adaptation of Don Winslow's recently-released novel The Cartel. Deadline broke the scoop on this one, reporting that 20th Century Fox won an auction for the book's screen rights - as well as the rights to the book that introduced Art Keller into fiction, The Power of the Dog. Ridley Scott is apparently committed to directing the high-priced adaptation, and Shane Salerno - who penned the last big screen Don Winslow film, »

Just how far can the 'Jurassic World' sequel really go?

23 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the biggest dangling threads in "Jurassic World" is the fate of Dr. Henry Wu. I thought it was fun casting to bring B.D. Wong back for "Jurassic World," but when I saw the film, I was surprised by just how much screen time they gave him and how clearly he's turned the corner from "bright guy hired by Hammond to do something fantastic and ethically questionable" to "mad scientist screwing his theme park bosses while coming up with some sinister applications for his work." What surprised me more was that they let him live. After all, "Jurassic World" is unafraid to kill even the most peripheral character in violent and preposterous manners, so why wouldn't they kill the man responsible for creating the just-plain-evil dinosaur that's running around eating everyone? The obvious answer is that they still need him, and sure enough, "Jurassic World" makes it clear that Dr. »

13 July 2015 4:19 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,” will host the fifth edition of the MTV Africa Music Awards on July 18 in Durban, in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal.

The Mamas, as the awards are known, were revived last year after a three-year hiatus and aired live in 48 countries, including for the first time across sub-Saharan Africa on multiplatform network MTV Base. They also trended globally, including in the U.S., on Twitter.

Anderson, who besides starring in “Black-ish” is the show’s executive producer, and also hosts Food Network’s “Carnival Cravings with Anthony Anderson,” enthused about the gig in a statement.

“I’m so looking forward to my first trip to Durban and KwaZulu-Natal and honored to be hosting Mama 2015 on Nelson Mandela’s birthday – it’s going to be awesome!,” he said.

Exclusive interview with Steven Schneider, producer of Shut In, Insidious and Paranormal Activity

Scott Davis chats with producer Steven Schneider

In an exclusive interview with Flickering Myth about his new film Shut In, producer Steven Schneider sits down with Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis to discuss the film, his upcoming projects Paranormal Activity, Insidious and everything in between…

Scott Davis: Congratulations on Shut In, you must be happy with the reaction to the film so far even before its official release?

Steven Schneider: Very happy, yes! It’s always a little scary exposing a new movie to the world, since there’s inevitably a chance it won’t be as well received as you think it deserves. Fortunately, in the case of Shut In, the initial response has been great and we’re hopeful that the positive word-of-mouth will continue.

Sd: What was it about this script and idea that made you want to make it?

SS: I’ve always had a thing for contained, »

Mark Wahlberg versus Mark Wahlberg: A tale of two actors

26 June 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many Mark Wahlbergs are there? I ask because I like the guy who showed up in this week's "Ted 2." I like goofball Mark Wahlberg. I like belligerent Boston Mark Wahlberg. I like dancing silly Mark Wahlberg. I like dim bulb but well-meaning Mark Wahlberg. I do not, however, care for "I'm smarter than I look" Mark Wahlberg. I do not like humorless Mark Wahlberg. I do not particularly care for serious action mode Mark Wahlberg. And when I look at the ones I don't like side-by-side with the ones I like, I find it hard to reconcile that this is all one person. So again… I ask… how many Mark Wahlbergs are there? When Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights" was released, it was a breakthrough for the young actor, part of a banner year in his nascent acting career. He had made a few films before that, including »

Quiz: All About Mark Wahlberg

22 June 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

He’s come a long way from his underwear-modelling and times he spent feeling the “Good Vibrations” as the shirtless Marky Mark.  No offense to the Funky Bunch, but we’re glad Mark Wahlberg made the leap from Boston rapper to A-list actor.

The Boston native is ready to hit the big screen with an old pal named Ted.  In Ted 2, Wahlberg returns to the role of John, best friend to the not-so-cuddly Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane).  The comedy sequel sees Ted fighting to prove he's a person in a court of law with best friend John by his side.

Wahlberg has long mixed up his acting roles, appearing in everything from award-winning dramas like The Fighter and The Departed, action flicks like Pain & Gain, and the raunchy comedy Ted, the actor’s highest-grossing movie to date.

How well do you know Mark Wahlberg?  Take the quiz and find out! »

The Lumiere fest, which celebrates classics and heritage films, will pay tribute to Scorsese for his “entire filmography, for his generous love of film, for his tireless fight for the preservation of the cinema of yesteryear, for his feature films, for his documentaries, for his love of music, for his kindness to young filmmakers from around the world, and also for his thunderous laugh,” it stated.

Scorsese, who will make his first trip to Lyon for the occasion, said: “What the Lumière festival does is very important. And it means a lot to me. I am proud to be invited and to receive the Lumière Award.”

Past Lumiere honoraries have included Quentin Tarantino and Clint Eastwood.

Examining the Jurassic Park 4 script that was never filmed

15 June 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Jurassic World bites a hole in our multiplexes, we compares its events to John Sayles' Jurassic Park IV script from a decade ago...

Nb: the following contains spoilers for Jurassic World.

For Universal, the success of Jurassic World is the $500m pay-off to a story which began well over a decade ago. Work on a third Jurassic Park sequel originally began after the release of Joe Johnston’s coolly-received Jurassic Park III way back in 2001, yet the film languished in a pre-production quagmire as writer after writer seemingly struggled to crack the story.

William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom Of Heaven) was the first screenwriter to step up to the plate, announced at a time when Keira Knightley was reportedly in the running for a major role. Around that time, Jeff Goldblum and Richard Attenborough were also thought to be returning to their respective roles of Ian Malcom and John Hammond. »

‘Jurassic World': 5 Key Reasons It Was a Box Office Monster

14 June 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jurassic World” stunned the movie business this weekend with its massive $204.6 million opening.

It’s the second-biggest debut in history and a sign that a franchise that appeared to have run out of gas 14 years ago, when “Jurassic Park III” petered out with $368.8 million at the global box office, has been reinvigorated.

So how did Universal Pictures, the studio behind the dinosaur thriller, pull off the cinematic comeback? Here are five key ingredients in the summer blockbuster’s success:

1.) Chris Pratt is a star. Period.

In an era of would-be leading men like Jai Courtney and Garrett Hedlund, Pratt shows what a true movie star looks like. After “Guardians of the Galaxy” proved he was an actor to watch, with his tongue-in-cheek work as a galactic adventurer drawing comparisons to Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones, “Jurassic World” offers up a second major franchise to stick in his quiver. That’s »

Hyperion: Syfy Teaming with Bradley Cooper and Todd Phillips to Adapt The Sci-Fi Epic

10 June 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Syfy is teaming up with producers Bradley Cooper (American Sniper), Graham King (The Departed, Argo), and Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Due Date) to adapt Dan Simmons' Hugo award-winning science fiction epic Hyperion as an event series. Itamar Moses (Boardwalk Empire) will write the screenplay and serve as co-executive producer. Holy hell, this is exciting. I've been waiting years for this one. Hyperion is a space opera of the highest caliber and and one of the best science fiction series of all time. Simmons created a universe that is complex, engrossing, often terrifying, and populated by fascinating characters. What's more, Syfy has assembled an excellent team of producers to bring the story to TV. [caption id="attachment_471143" align="alignright" width="230"] Image via Doubleday/Bantam Books[/caption] I'm intrigued to find out how they will handle the unconventional narrative of the books - the first is told in a series of vignettes introducing the characters, while the second installment, »

How Steven Spielberg Helped Save Jurassic World

9 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Steven Spielberg doesn’t need Jurassic World to be a mega hit. We all know Mr. Spielberg has plenty of money. What’s another cent mean to Spielberg? Admittedly, his name has been on some projects that appear more monetary-driven, but that’s not the case with Jurassic World. If that wasn’t true, then we wouldn’t have waited almost 14 years for the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise. Spielberg took his time with this one. Even when he had such talents as William Monahan (The Departed) and John Sayles (Lone Star) involved in writing the fourth film, the legendary director didn’t move forward. Not until two or three years ago did the right story come along. The director behind Safety Not GuaranteedColin Trevorrow, and his co-writer, Derek Connolly, presented Spielberg’s ideas in a story he wanted to see told. With Jurassic World on the right path, the »
