Carell & Verbinski Respond To Their Film Becoming A #SonyHack Casualty

1 hour ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Another one bites the dust...

In the wake of yesterday's announcement that they were pulling the plug on The Interview, canceling its December 25 premiere, another film set in North Korea has gotten the axe. Steve Carell was set to team with director Gore Verbinksi to make Pyongyang. The film was to be based off of Guy Delisle's "Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea," a graphic novel released in 2007.

Here's what the book was about:

"Famously referred to as one of the 'Axis of Evil' countries, North Korea remains one of the most secretive and mysterious nations in the world today. In early 2001 cartoonist Guy Delisle became one of the few Westerners to be allowed access to the fortresslike country. While living in the nation's capital for two months on a work visa for a French film animation company, Delisle observed what he was allowed to see of the »

Andy Serkis Addresses Recent Rumors About His 'Star Wars' Character(s)

1 hour ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few weeks back, a rumor began making its way around these here interwebs that Andy Serkis would be playing not one but two roles in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The rumor came from a report by Jedi News, and it claimed that he'd be both a mo-cap character and a flesh-and-blood person in the film. Entertainment Weekly did some digging, while chatting with the actor, and got him to address the rumors.

According to Serkis, it's all hogwash. He says the rumor that he's playing multiple characters is "not true at all." He then asserts, "I can say I only play one character."

Speaking of his character, he says that not only was his voice in the trailer not digitally modified, but that what's heard are actual lines spoken in the film. He didn't record narration. That's no "trailer voice over." What we heard in that teaser »

Sony Pictures Has 'No Further Release Plans' for 'The Interview'

3 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Following news that Sony Pictures had canceled the December 25th theatrical release of The Interview, it was still unclear if the film was simply postponed until a later date while authorities investigate the veracity of the hacker group's threats of terrorism or if it would instead be released via video-on-demand or DVD. Now it appears that Sony Pictures might be shelving the film for good.

"Sony Pictures has no further release plans for the film," the studio told Deadline when asked if a home release for The Interview was in »

The Interview cancellation: Hollywood stars express concern

12 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sony Pictures bowed to pressure yesterday (December 17) and pulled The Interview from its December 25 release.

The big movie chains in the Us gradually dropped the controversial film, following a terror threat from a group known as 'Guardians of Peace', which previously claimed responsibility for the cyber attacks on Sony Pictures.

However, Hollywood has largely expressed disappointment and concern with the decision. Digital Spy rounds up some of the reactions from the stars below:

Wow. Everyone caved. The hackers won. An utter and complete victory for them. Wow.

Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) December 17, 2014

Dear Sony Hackers: now that u run Hollywood, I'd also like less romantic comedies, fewer Michael Bay movies and no more Transformers.

Michael Moore (@MMFlint) December 17, 2014

Let's be real here. No One wanted to see "The Interview" to begin with. It's most likely a crappy movie. Now that it's gone, you want it.

Hollywood Reacts to Sony Canceling 'The Interview'

14 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sony Pictures gave in to demands today and pulled The Interview from theaters, after hackers threatened a 9-11-style attack on any theater showing the film. Despite the fact that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released a statement stating there was no evidence of a terrorist plot against U.S. movie theaters that are screening The Interview, Sony gave theater owners the option to break contractual agreements and pull the film, most of which chose to do so. Later, Sony said they were choosing to cancel The Interview "in light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors to not show the film."

"Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale - »

Stars Furious Over Sony Canceling 'The Interview': 'America Has Lost Its First Cyberwar'

17 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Blu-ray Review: Slices of Solid Action in Surprising ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’

16 December 2014 8:37 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago - Look past the cheesy carbs and b-boy poses, this shiny mo-cap reboot of cartoon juggernaut “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” offers slick entertainment that makes for a welcome surprise for middle school fare. Proving that executive producer Michael Bay has both grown up but it still frightfully in tune with what jazzes teens, this surprise box office hit is indeed a nice slice of a blockbuster spectacle, whether or not a viewer cares about the turtles or not.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

It’s a good year for action movies when even a “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” feature boasts sequences that could stand next to select moments from “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and even the almighty Chicago Film Critics Association Best Foreign Language film nominee, “The Raid 2.” This film from the usually-unpromising director Jonathan Liebesman has a strong quantity of sequences where the biggest traces of »

Film Review: 'The Hobbit: Battle of The Five Armies'

16 December 2014 7:55 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I should start by making one thing perfectly clear:

I stayed awake!

That may sound like faint praise, but really: I stayed awake! That's something I wasn't able to do through the first two-thirds of this Hobbit trilogy. This, despite the fact that I was fairly excited for them, and was psyched to see Peter Jackson return to Middle Earth. But while those first two films felt, to me, like a bunch of emotionally-flat filler, this one felt alive. Also, with a running time that felt downright lean and mean at around 2:15, Battle of The Five Armies is the most urgent and streamlined of Jackson's voyages to this world. 

We open right where we left off at the conclusion of The Desolation of Smaug and, from there, the film keeps a great pace throughout. It hits the ground running, and when it stops, it's for character beats that feel truly necessary. »

And Your Top 5 Candidates To Direct 'Star Trek 3" Are...

16 December 2014 7:33 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since Roberto Orci stepped down as director for Star Trek 3, all eyes have been on Paramount to see who they replace him with. While Orci wasn't necessarily a popular choice, he was an integral part of the first two films in the successfully-rebooted series, so where would Paramount turn to find a new captain? Orci was going to be making his feature directorial debut with this film. Would they look for someone with a similar lack of experience, hoping for something fresh? Would they go after someone with a proven track record of directing financially successful franchise films? Or would they reach out to the avant garde? 

According to Deadline: All of the above.

The site is reporting that they've had a look at list of directors Paramount is interested in bringing in to take over for Orci- who is staying on as a producer.

#SonyHack Now Brings Us 'Ghosbusters' Insights

16 December 2014 7:04 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Another day, another insight pulled out of the e-mails hacked over at Sony Pictures. Today, courtesy of Vulture, we're getting a look at what director Paul Feig may have in mind for his Ghosbusters reboot. We're venturing into *Spoiler* territory here, since it's possible that some- or all- of this will end up in the final film.

Feig's e-mails, where he spitballs ideas for Ghostbusters tells us this:

It will be a from-scratch reboot that won't be linked to the original filmsThe Ghosbusters team will work for the government, though in a shadow capacity since the government refuses to acknowledge the existence of ghostsIt's set in a world where there's never been ghosts, which makes this event that unleashes them a big dealSpeaking of unleashing, the plot goes like this: A convicted murdered is sentenced to death.

What's Up With Supes In 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'?

15 December 2014 7:56 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ever since the sequel to Man of Steel manifested itself in the form of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, much has been made of the fact that Superman seems like a bit player in his own sequel. From fans to writers (myself included), much fun has been derived from this idea that the film has become so over-stuffed with characters and plot lines intended to launch other franchises that Big Blue was more a third banana than a second fiddle. But now comes this report from our friend Devin Faraci over at BadAss Digest that seems to clarify things for fans worried that the Man of Steel was being marginalized in his own sequel. 

Please be aware, there are some major, Major *Spoilers* Ahead! Faraci has had a look at a pre-filming script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so while some details may changed, there are plenty »

Watch Michael Bay Edit Transformers 4; New Video Chronicles His Entire Post-Production Process From the Editing Room to the World Premiere

11 December 2014 2:55 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The post-production process is the unsung hero of the movie business.  There's a saying that every film exists as three different movies; the one that's written, the one that's filmed, and the one that's created in the editing room.  Of course, audiences only see the final version, so it's no surprise that the average movie-goer is unaware of how crucial the post-production process really is and how much work goes into it.  If this is true of any movie, it's doubly so on film as massive as Transformers: Age of Extinction. Michael Bay just released a cool video on his website that depicts his entire post-production on Transformers 4 from the editing room, to voice-overs, to recording the score, all the way to the world premiere.  It's a fascinating inside look into a side of the business we don't often get to see.  Hit the jump to watch.
