Watch: New TV Spot for Frank Miller's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

21 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Later this week, Dimension Films will show off some of the goods from Sin City: A Dame to Kill for at Comic-Con with a panel in Hall H on July 26th with Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller and actors Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin and Rosario Dawson in attendance. But in the meantime, a new TV spot for the graphic novel follow-up has arrived, and it's basically a very condensed version of what we saw in the full theatrical trailer. The film looks gorgeous, and we can't wait to see what Miller and Rodriguez have done with their return to this seedy, grimy film noir tale. Eva Green really does seem like a dame to kill for. The TV spot for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (via ComingSoon): Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez who co-wrote the »

Sony has released a UK quad poster for The Equalizer, the upcoming adaptation of the classic 80s TV series, which sees Denzel Washington taking on the role of Robert McCall, made famous by Edward Woodward

In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston.  When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help.  He is The Equalizer.

Miller & Rodriguez's 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Gets a Final Poster

16 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There Is No Justice Without Sin. Dimension Films has unveiled the full poster for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, starring a huge cast including Eva Green as the "dame to kill for" Ava Lord, along with Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Josh Brolin, Jaime King, Rosario Dawson, Juno Temple and Powers Boothe as Senator Roark. We've seen plenty of trailers before, and the film will get its own panel at Comic-Con, so expect to hear more buzz then. Oddly, this poster features Jessica Alba as Nancy front and center, but looking like she's an undead Beetlejuice-esque Nancy in a studded-leather jacket (MPAA-approved!) with a glowing door randomly put in Rourke's crotch. Here's the new poster for Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For from IMDb: Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is directed by Robert Rodriguez »

Martin Scorsese's 'Silence' Goes to Paramount for a November 2015 Release

14 July 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following their successful collaboration on last year's The Wolf of Wall Street, Paramount Pictures has acquired director Martin Scorsese's next project, Silence, slated for release in November 2015.

While a specific release date has not been announced, a number of high-profile projects have already staked November 2015 dates, including Sony's Bond 24 (November 6, 2015), New Line's Friday the 13th reboot (November 13, 2015), Lionsgate's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (November 20, 2015) and Pixar's The Good Dinosaur (November 25, 2015).

Silence, which Martin Scorsese has wanted to make for over a decade, is based on Shusako Endo's novel that follows two Jesuit priests in the 17th Century, who journey to Japan upon learning that their mentor has abandoned the church. They face violence and persecution along their journey in this foreign land. Andrew Garfield stars as one of the priests, with Ken Watanabe portraying his Japanese interpreter. Liam Neeson, Issei Ogata and Adam Driver also star in unspecified roles. »

Exclusive Interview With Joe Berlinger On Whitey: United States Of America V. James J. Bulger

12 July 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Joe Berlinger’s documentaries typically deal with glaring flaws in the American justice system, and his latest is no different. Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger follows the trial of one of the most brutal gangsters America has ever seen, James “Whitey” Bulger.

Just as it seems like Bulger will finally be brought to justice, accusations of multi-faceted corruption within our nation’s law enforcement and legal systems surface, and the FBI begins to look just as bad as the mob. Although it is never fully proven, it appears that the FBI may have had a hand in allowing Bulger to remain such a frightening crime figure for far too long a time.

It was a privilege being able to talk with Berlinger when he arrived at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles, California last week to do some press for the film. During our exclusive interview, »

Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson to headline Forever, Interrupted

12 July 2014 1:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

THR reports that Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson will headline another book-to-screen adaptation, Forever, Interrupted. 

Written by Taylor Jenkins Reid, the novel tells the story of Elsie Porter, an average twentysomething who falls head over heels in love with a man named Ben Ross. Within weeks the two have eloped, but their happy ending is cut short when Ben is killed instantly after his bike is hit by a truck nine days after the wedding. Elsie must then face Susan, the mother-in-law she’s never met and who doesn’t even know that Elsie exists.

Johnson will take on the role of Elsie, and the producers could not be more ecstatic about her casting. According to Amy Baer, who runs production house Gidden Media:

“Taylor’s book is exquisitely written and heart-wrenchingly honest. Great romantic drama is so hard to execute, and Taylor nailed it. And Dakota will be exquisite as Elsie, »

Here's Mark Wahlberg Losing It Over and Over Again

11 July 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So, what's Mark Wahlberg's best movie tantrum? I'm partial to his "Boogie Nights" freakouts, but there's an argument for "The Departed" too, i think. Either way: This Yahoo! supercut of Wahlberg's best tantrums will give you a new appreciation for the Oscar nominee.  (If you picked "The Fighter," by the way, I applaud you -- but the best part of that movie is when Amy Adams turns to Wahlberg's trashy sisters and says, "Don't call me 'skank.' I'll rip that nasty hair right out of your f*ckin' head." Just Fyi. Nsfw.) »

Beyond Fright Review: Whitey: United States Of America Vs. James J. Bulger

11 July 2014 1:35 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

True crime stories have always held my attention, as they are examples of not only how evil human beings can be, but how said men are capable of such awful acts of violence. The true crime approach to storytelling, whether it be in books, biopics, or in the case of Whitey: United States Of America V. James J. Bulger, a documentary, is just as scary as the darkest of horror films, because unlike the terrorizing of Freddy or Jason, these people exist in the real world. Proving that he’s still just as perfectly capable of directing a documentary on par with his excellent work on the Paradise Lost documentaries, Joe Berlinger hits the ball right out of the park with this one, providing viewers familiar or unfamiliar with the case of Whitey Bulger with one hell of a doc, and a look at how corrupt the system can be at times. »

“Haht” of Gold: Top 10 Oscar-Winning Actors from Massachusetts

11 July 2014 1:03 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It is not too shabby in what the Northeast (New England) part of the United States has produced in terms of past and present actors/actresses making their show business dreams come true. Film careers can be a lot like ice cubes–they start out solid and cool but if you sit around in stagnation your efforts and hard work can melt away before one’s very eyes. Certainly no one can accuse this talented crop of thespians of being one-hit wonders on the big screen. After all, one does not become a recipient of an Academy Award by just sheer luck and charitable fortune.

As a native Bostonian and life long New Englander, I felt compelled to spotlight those Massachusetts-born and bred actors from the same region that had ultimate success on the big screen in winning the Oscar for their acting achievement and contribution to the motion picture industry. »

Alec Baldwin For ‘Mission: Impossible 5′ & More

10 July 2014 11:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Alec Baldwin seems to be in high demand ever since the end of unforgettable TV comedy 30 Rock. The Beetlejuice star is looking at a number of high profile roles in film as well as a new TV series too. The first of these big projects is the head of the CIA in the upcoming Mission: Impossible 5. It’s easy to imagine Baldwin in such a role, and hopefull he’ll play it like his character in The Departed. Swear words in tact.

Baldwin may also be joining Will Smith in a film focused on football concussions. The sports related film will be directed by Peter Landesman who gave us last years Parkland. This will be Landesman’s second film in the director’s chair.

Finally, Baldwin may also be taking on a Rob Ford type character in an NBC comedy drama. Although not playing Ford specifically, this will be the »

10 of geek cinema's more curious quirks of fate

10 July 2014 6:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We take a light-hearted look at a few of the more strange coincidences and quirks of fate in recent cinema history...

Top 10

Stories are often built on coincidences and happenstance. Chance encounters at railway stations. Bruce Willis bumping into Ving Rhames while he's out and about in his Honda in Pulp Fiction. But what about those weird patterns we see in our everyday reality, or, more to the point, in cinema history?

When Batman Begins came out, it was widely noted that Christian Bale had already played an unfathomably rich man with a secret double life before, in Mary Harron's adaptation of American Psycho. Bale's character, Patrick Bateman, even has a surname that's basically Batman with an 'e' added to it.

Those are the kinds of strange quirks of fate we're looking at here. If you have any of your own, do share them in the comments section.

Alec Baldwin in 'Mission: Impossible 5' & Will Smith Football Drama

9 July 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The best thing Alec Baldwin has done in the past decade (besides The Departed) is undoubtedly his Emmy winning role as Jack Donaghy on the NBC comedy series "30 Rock" where he played the NBC and General Electric executive with unwavering confidence, swagger and hilarity. Now Deadline reports the actor is getting ready to take another pivotal superior role as Parmount is lining up Baldwin to play the head of the CIA in Mission: Impossible 5. There's a part of us that wishes he was simply playing Jack Donaghy in the film, but that probably isn't in the cards. Though it likely means that Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) will either clash or work with the CIA again in some capacity. And that's not the only role the actor has lined up either. The same report also indicates that Baldwin is currently in talks to take a role in the untitled football »

Alec Baldwin in Talks to Join Tom Cruise in ‘Mission: Impossible 5′

9 July 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Alec Baldwin is in negotiations to join Tom Cruise in Paramount and Skydance’s next installment in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise.

Jack Reacher” helmer Chris McQuarrie is directing this installment. Cruise, Skydance’s David Ellison and J.J. Abrams are producing.

Plot details are being kept under wraps but sources say Baldwin’s character would be a high-ranking CIA officer who oversee Cruise’s division, similar to the role Laurence Fishburne had in “Mission: Impossible III.” Drew Pearce penned the script.

The studio is still looking to find the female lead after Jessica Chastain passed on the part. The pic is set to bow on Christmas Day 2015.

Baldwin shouldn’t have a problem filling a position of authority after receiving strong reviews as Matt Damon’s commanding officer in “The Departed.”

He is repped by CAA and N2N Entertainment and can be seen next in Cameron Crowe’s untitled film »
