Casting Net: Jack Huston to star as title role in 'Ben-Hur' remake

17 September 2014 5:23 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

• Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston will take the chariot reins as the title role in the upcoming remake of Ben-Hur. Previously, Tom Hiddleston had been in talks for the role of slave Judah Ben-Hur in the Paramount and MGM picture. Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is directing the film adapted by John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) and Keith Clarke (The Way Back) that is said to be based more on Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ than the 1959 film that starred Charlton Heston. Morgan Freeman has already been cast as Ildarin, the teacher who helps make the slave Ben-Hur into chariot racer champion. »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

For First Time Ever, Panama Joins Oscar Race, with ‘Invasion’

17 September 2014 5:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Panama has joined the foreign language Oscar race for the first time ever with, moreover, an acclaimed film which, as the U.S. considers sending ground troops to Iraq, takes a questioning stance on the efficacy – plus humanity – of American armed intervention in foreign lands.

Panama’s first Oscar submission for the Academy Awards foreign-language category, Abner Benaim’s theatrical docu feature “Invasion,” was the biggest hit among Central American movies at April’s 3rd Panama Int’l. Film Festival.

History is normally told by its victors, but not in the revisionist “Invasion.” Winner of the Mastercard Central America and Caribbean Audience Award and the Best Documentary Audience Award at Piff, docu-feature “Invasion” narrates the U.S. 1989 invasion to oust General Manuel Noriega from the point-of-view of ordinary Panamanians, including people nearly killed in its bombing, members of its makeshift military defense, journalists, historians and ordinary but often articulate Panamanian citizens. »

'Revenge of the Green Dragons' (2014) Movie Review

7 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

"There's a storm coming, and I don't know of any umbrella that can keep the city dry." This is an actual quote from Revenge of the Green Dragons, an awful movie if I've ever seen one and a baffling one at that as Martin Scorsese has attached his name to the picture as an executive producer, presumably as a nod to co-writer and co-director Andy Lau going back to when Scorsese adapted Infernal Affairs into the Oscar winner The Departed. Fair enough, but Lau makes more than enough films and Scorsese didn't need to come within a mile of this one and tarnish his reputation. Then again, perhaps this 94-minute cut isn't the only cut of the film out there. The trailer certainly includes shots that aren't in the film and the characters are so poorly established there has to be more than what I saw. Of course, that won't »

Mark Wahlberg Vehicle 'The Gambler' Enters Oscar Race, 'Terminator' 6 & 7 Set For 2017 & 2018

6 September 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We hate to say it, but with certain Hollywood gossip mongers otherwise indisposed at the moment... toldja? A few days ago, we were discussing potential dark horses for the Oscar race, and one of the films we particularly highlighted was "The Gambler," Rupert Wyatt's remake of James Toback's 1974 James Caan vehicle about a college professor with the titular addiction. Penned by Academy Award-winning "The Departed" scribe William Monahan, it now stars Mark Wahlberg, Brie Larson, Jessica Lange and John Goodman. The film was, heretofore, absent from the festival circuit and without a release date, but Paramount has just made their intentions known, announcing via Variety that the film will compete in the awards season this year, opening in limited release on December 19th, before expanding wider on New Year's Day, a similar pattern to the one that Wahlberg's "Lone Survivor" took last year. That film didn't ultimately do »

Paramount doubles down on Mark Wahlberg's 'The Gambler' for 2014 limited release

5 September 2014 9:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I guess it was news that "The Gambler" was getting a limited release in December to qualify for awards. This has been in the cards for a while now. Maybe it was all about settling on a date (or even some soul-searching at Paramount, which will be releasing a bunch of movies over a six-month stretch). The date: Dec. 16. The film is a remake of the 1974 James Caan drama with Mark Wahlberg in the lead. Wahlberg is pretty important to the studio as of late, anchoring the billion-dollar blockbuster "Transformers: Age of Extinction" and whatnot. He dropped a significant amount of weight for the role and could certainly become part of an already over-stuffed Best Actor converstion. But the way I hear it, John Goodman is someone to at least pay attention to in supporting, too. So take all that for what it's worth in early September. The film was »

4 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With just over three weeks to go before Denzel Washington takes on the role of Robert McCall for The Equalizer, Sony has dropped a new poster and trailer for the thriller, which reunites Denzel with his Training Day director Antoine Fuqua

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.

15 hidden gems from the last 15 years of The Simpsons

4 September 2014 2:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark counts down 15 great episodes of The Simpsons from its often-overlooked past 15 years...

Last week, we counted down our list of the top 50 episodes of The Simpsons ever made. It's a tough list to make, picking out less than 10 percent of the 552 episodes broadcast to date, to select the very best of the best. This is despite the off-hand consensus of some viewers that the series has been total rubbish since season 10.

We don't hold much truck with this assumption. The Simpsons is an institution and to suggest that more than half of it is garbage is more than a bit reductive. Admittedly, there's much to support the argument that few episodes produced in the twenty-first century can quite stand up to the genius of the earlier canon, but anything would suffer in comparison to that golden age of the show.

If you're one of the people who stopped watching the series after the nineties, »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Hey Ho, Let’s Go! Martin Scorsese To Make A Ramones Movie For 2016

28 August 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There was a time not too long ago when Martin Scorsese was thought of as a critic’s darling, not a crowd-pleaser. However, since The Aviator hit the $100 million mark in 2005, three of his other DiCaprio films (The Departed, Shutter Island, The Wolf of Wall Street) crossed that box office threshold. More popular than ever, the 71-year-old can make the sorts of pictures he wants. While he is about to start filming his long-brewing Silence and premiere his documentary The 50-Year Argument at the Toronto Film Festival, word is out that the master director is now attached to make a film about the legendary punk group The Ramones.

The rockers’ various estates are now in a deal to give archival material to creative sources, including Scorsese, says Jeff Jampol, who co-manages the band’s estate. “Everybody [from the families] is cooperation and moving in one direction together as a team,” Jampol told Billboard. »

Martin Scorsese Is Making A Ramones Biopic

27 August 2014 8:48 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Music has long played a very important role in Martin Scorsese's career. Whether it's the memorable uses of songs like Eric Clapton's "Layla" or "I.m Shipping Up to Boston" by Dropkick Murphys in features like Goodfellas and The Departed or concert documentaries he's helmed like The Last Waltz and Shine A Light, the filmmaker has long found a way to bring the two mediums into harmonious sync. It's for this reason that we're not at all shocked by what's being proposed as Scorsese's next project after the religious period drama Silence. Billboard has it on good authority that Martin Scorsese is in the early process of trying to make a movie about The Ramones, the legendary punk band. While things appear to still be in the early stages, Jeff Jampol and Dave Frey - the co-managers of the band's estate - are working to plan a big »
