'Star Wars' Themed Jets Coming from Japanese Airline

18 August 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ana, Japan's largest airline, today announced that two more of its planes will be decorated with Star Wars characters as part of an agreement with The Walt Disney Company (Japan) Ltd. Bb-8, a brand new character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens scheduled for theatrical release in December 2015, will be displayed on the livery of the Bb-8 Ana Jet, a Boeing 777-300Er. Ana also announced the Star Wars Ana Jet, which will showcase both Bb-8 and R2-D2 on the outside of a Boeing 767-300. These Star Wars themed planes will join the previously announced R2-D2 Ana Jet, a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. Through this combination of characters, Ana hopes to welcome more passengers of all ages from around the world.

Ana launched the Star Wars Project in April 2015 after signing a five year promotion license contract for the Star Wars brand with The Walt Disney Company (Japan) Ltd. As part of the agreement, »

R2-D2 is my co-pilot: Japanese jumbo jets get the Star Wars treatment

18 August 2015 3:54 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Prepare for "the aerodynamic Force is strong in this one" puns, because Star Wars has teamed up with Japanese airline Ana to create R2-D2 and Bb-8 emblazoned planes.

The jumbo jets - Boeing 777-300ERs and Boeing 767-300s, in case you were wondering - will also be the very first aircraft to officially screen all six episodes of the Star Wars franchise on their in-flight entertainment systems.

More than that, onboard headrest covers, paper napkins and cups will also get the Star Wars stamp, with more merchandise on the way.

There is a problem with this otherwise exciting idea: to get on board, you'll have to fly between the likes of Tokyo, Vancouver, Seattle, San Jose, Munich, Paris, Brussels, Sydney, Beijing and Jakarta. So if you don't live there, and you're a die-hard fan, you may want to move.

Haugesund: France’s Wide Moves ‘2 Nights Till Morning’ (Exclusive)

18 August 2015 1:54 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Having represented the two highest-profile Swiss titles at Locarno last week, Paris-based sales-production house Wide has acquired international sales rights to “2 Nights Till Morning,” the English-language debut of Helsinki-based Mikko Kuparinen.

“2 Nights” toplines Canada’s Marie-Josee Croze, a Cannes 2003 best actress winner for Denys Arcand’s “Barbarian Invasions.” She was also a highlight in Steven Spielberg’s “Munich,” and played the speech therapist in Julian Schnabel’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.” Finland’s Mikko Nousianen, seen in Renny Harlin’s “5 Days of War,” co-stars.

“2 Nights” plays Haugesund’s New Nordic Films screenings, which kicks off today, before getting its North American premiere at the Montreal Festival, which bows Aug. 27, and big market premiere at Toronto, which begins Sept. 10.

Also written by Kuparinen and his second feature after “Body Fat Index of Love,” “2 Nights Till Morning” stars Croze as a French architect on a business trip who meets Nouianen’s D. »

New 'Bridge of Spies' Trailer is Fraught with Drama

8 July 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'm getting a little The Spy that Came in from the Cold vibe with some of the imagery in this latest Bridge of Spies trailer. Whether that's just a result of the word "spy" being in both titles I'm not sure. That said, I can't say I'm particularly moved by what I see, but I think that's largely due to the fact it feels like Spielberg is a victim of his own style. Lincoln was elevated by the writing and the performance by Daniel Day-Lewis, but man, most of Spielberg's films after 2002's Catch Me If You Can are pretty much down-the-middle as far as I'm concerned. The risk taking is limited and while I respect the somber and dialed back nature of Munich (even though I don't really like the film that much), there's a measure of "sameness" that's grown tiresome, as if he's still looking for something to truly inspire him once again. »

The Eclipse Viewer – Episode 30 – Early Fassbinder, Part Two

30 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

This podcast focuses on Criterion’s Eclipse Series of DVDs. Hosts David Blakeslee and Trevor Berrett give an overview of each box and offer their perspectives on the unique treasures they find inside. In this episode, David and Trevor conclude their two-part discussion of Eclipse Series 39: Early Fassbinder.

About the films:

From the very beginning of his incandescent career, the New German Cinema enfant terrible Rainer Werner Fassbinder refused to play by the rules. His politically charged, experimental first films, made at an astonishingly rapid rate between 1969 and 1970, were influenced by the work of the Antiteater, an avant-garde stage troupe that he had helped found in Munich. Collected here are five of those fascinating and confrontational works. Whether a self- conscious meditation on American crime movies, a scathing indictment of xenophobia in contemporary Germany, or an off-the-wall look at the dysfunctional relationships on film sets, each is a startling »

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »

Mindy Newell: The Amazing Adventure Of Mohall And Newell

18 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

So today (Sunday, which is yesterday), Editor Mike sent me a link to a column on The Jewish Daily Forward’s website which asks the question “Do Marvel Movies Have An Anti-Semitic Problem?” – which also happens to be the dumbest article I’ve ever read on their site.

Granted, The Forward – which was born way back in 1867 as a Yiddish language daily newspaper published by dissidents from the Socialist Labor Party – is a left-leaning paper whose heart and soul is the Jewish-American experience, with strong ties to Israel, and its articles are purposely written with that audience as its primary target. And granted, The Forward has not been the only news media outlet that has noted and remarked upon the recent rebirth of overt and increasingly violent anti-Semitism around the globe, especially in Europe. And yes, The Forward should be praised in its unadulterated and unabridged journalism that consistently calls out the perpetrators. »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

Oscar Nominated Film Series: Munich - Director Spielberg's Most Satisfying Effort in Decades

3 May 2015 7:46 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Munich' movie cover 'Munich' movie review: Steven Spielberg tackles political time-space continuum in wildly uneven but ultimately satisfying thriller Alternately intriguing and irritating, thought-provoking and banal, subtle and patronizing, the biggest surprise about Steven Spielberg's Munich is that it – however grudgingly – works. The film, which Spielberg himself has referred to as a "prayer for peace," follows five men contracted by the Israeli government to avenge the massacre of that country's athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Sizable chunks of this political thriller with a Message (capital "M") are simplistically written, clumsily acted, and handled with the director's notoriously heavy touch, but the old adage – blood begets blood – even if somewhat muddled, is too timely not to make an impact. Complex 'Munich' movie plot Based on George Jonas' 1984 book Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, whose veracity has been questioned in some quarters, Munich begins as »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Based on the George Jonas’ novel Vengeance, Steven Spielberg’s 2005 drama Munich centers on a covert hit squad that was commissioned by the Israeli government to assassinate the 11 individuals suspected of planning the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre.

Leading the group is Avner Kaufmann (Eric Bana), a Mossad agent named handpicked by Israel Minister Golda Meir (Lynn Cohen) to lead the team. The diverse group includes a driven South African mercenary named Steve (Daniel Craig); Robert (Mathieu Kassovitz), a Belgian toy maker who also makes bombs, an expert forger named Hans (Hanns Zischler) and Carl (Ciaran Hinds), the person responsible for making sure the targets are clean and collateral damage will not become an issue. Despite the denial of their existence by the Israeli government, Avner occasionally reports to a hard line official named Ephraim (Geoffrey Rush).

For a while, the mission is a success as one by one, the targets are found and taken out. »

The 10 Most Anticipated Movie Scores of 2015

7 February 2015 8:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film scores are pretty ephemeral to a large chunk of the movie-going populace, where music isn’t noticeable unless a triumphant fanfare or sweeping ballad draws enough attention to itself. So if scoring is already the film industry’s unappreciated middle child, how silly is a list about ones that haven’t been released yet? Very silly. Oftentimes, composers don’t even sign with a project until well into production, so speculating on the best film music of 2015, like any year, forces one to work with what’s known. Sound on Sight will offer more in-depth analysis on the most buzzed about music as the year rolls on but for now, here are the ten movie scores I’m most excited to hear in 2015.

10. The WalkAlan Silvestri

Alan Silvestri’s last great score was for a TV show, and his last great film score was for one of the more forgettable Marvel entries. »
