8 Unmade Steven Spielberg Films

9 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Last week we reported on Steven Spielberg’s plans to direct an adaptation of the cult sci-fi novel by Ernest Cline, Ready Player One. Color us excited. The novel involves players of a video game journeying into a virtual reality world rife with pop culture references and Easter eggs to the real world. The player who can decipher all the mysteries and references in the world wins the opportunity to control it. In Spielberg’s capable hands, it has the potential to be a technical marvel and a modern classic.

That is, if he actually makes it. Ready Player One poses some unusually problematic challenges on just a practical standpoint. Cline’s story falls into the “unfilmable novel” territory, not just for the digital world necessary for a filmmaker to recreate, but also in terms of licensing. To get the rights to depict the many iconic film and TV characters »

Hulu Gets Exclusive Streaming Deal For Fox’s Hit ‘Empire’

19 March 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

There’s certainly no question that Fox‘s Empire is an absolute hit, and the series finale’s massive ratings prove it.

If you happened to miss the show, or just want to watch it over and over again, you now know where to look. Hulu has just announced that it has the exclusive ability to let you binge on the show people can’t stop talking about.

It may eventually be a show, and deal, worth studying as we have to wonder at some point if the law of diminishing returns doesn’t kick in when a show becomes popular enough that everyone who wants to watch it already did.

But, big news for Hulu as the streaming wars rage on.

Jamie Foxx to play Mike Tyson for Martin Scorsese

15 March 2015 11:25 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Martin Scorsese is to direct the Mike Tyson biopic - and Jamie Foxx is to take on the lead role.

It very much sounds as though the planned biopic of Mike Tyson is happening now, as Jamie Foxx has dropped the news that he's taking the project on.

Foxx was chatting on New York's Power 105 radio station, when he said that "I just went in with Paramount with Mike Tyson. So I'm going to do the Mike Tyson story".

He continued, adding that "listen, to be in the same room pitching Mike Tyson to Paramount, Mike Tyson is on one said, I'm on the other side and doing Mike Tyson at the same time. And Martin Scorsese at the helm".

"This will be the first boxing movie that Martin Scorsese has done since Raging Bull", Foxx added.

Well, that's two pieces of news that hadn't been confirmed before, then. Firstly, »

Martin Scorsese to Direct Jamie Foxx in Mike Tyson Biopic

14 March 2015 3:29 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Back in 2008, Mike Tyson revealed that he has been speaking with Jamie Foxx about the actor portraying him in a biopic. Two years later, Foxx said that he would be interested in taking the role. Then last summer, it was officially announced that a Mike Tyson biopic was in the works that Foxx will play the boxer. Tyson later said that he'd heard talks of Martin Scorsese directing the film, adding that the same technology that was used on "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" will be used to turn Foxx into Tyson at different ages. And now, Foxx confirmed to a radio station that Scorsese will indeed direct the biopic. "I just went in with Paramount with Mike Tyson," said the actor. "So I'm going to do the Mike Tyson story.

Martin Scorsese to Direct Jamie Foxx in Mike Tyson Biopic

13 March 2015 1:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in July, we reported that actor Jamie Foxx signed on to star in Paramount's Untitled Mike Tyson Biopic, with Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter signing on to write the screenplay. We haven't heard anything about this biopic since then, but during a radio interview with Power 105's The Breakfast Club, Jamie Foxx revealed that Martin Scorsese has come aboard to direct. Take a look at what the actor had to say below.

"I just went in with Paramount with Mike Tyson. So I'm going to do the Mike Tyson story. Listen, to be in the same room pitching Mike Tyson to Paramount, Mike Tyson is on one side, I'm on the other side and doing Mike Tyson at the same time. And Martin Scorsese at the helm.

Oscar Winner Went All the Way from Wyler to Coppola in Film Career Spanning Half a Century

11 March 2015 2:18 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Teresa Wright and Matt Damon in 'The Rainmaker' Teresa Wright: From Marlon Brando to Matt Damon (See preceding post: "Teresa Wright vs. Samuel Goldwyn: Nasty Falling Out.") "I'd rather have luck than brains!" Teresa Wright was quoted as saying in the early 1950s. That's understandable, considering her post-Samuel Goldwyn choice of movie roles, some of which may have seemed promising on paper.[1] Wright was Marlon Brando's first Hollywood leading lady, but that didn't help her to bounce back following the very public spat with her former boss. After all, The Men was released before Elia Kazan's film version of A Streetcar Named Desire turned Brando into a major international star. Chances are that good film offers were scarce. After Wright's brief 1950 comeback, for the third time in less than a decade she would be gone from the big screen for more than a year. »

5 Roles That Prove Taraji P. Henson Has Always Been a Boss

11 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

In case you didn’t know, Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson is a boss lady who plays boss-ass roles. Check out these past credits that prove she’s always been a winner, just like her Empire character.

Here’s looking at you, Cookie Lyon.

1. Shug in Hustle & Flow

We wouldn’t be waiting for Cookie Lyon’s musical moment if we didn’t already know that Taraji has it in her. She starred alongside Terrence Howard in 2005′s Hustle & Flow, as a pregnant prostitute who DJay (Howard) can’t help but love. Shrewd woman that she is, Shug maneuvers her way into joining DJay in his musical endeavors — most notably, by recording the song “Hard Out Here for a Pimp” with him. The song won Three Six Mafia an Oscar for Best Original Song, and Taraji earned a Bet Best Actress Award for her performance.

Top 12 really creepy ballet moments in film and TV

23 February 2015 9:40 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ballet adds a surreal, creepy quality to many films and tv shows. Here are 12 of the most unsettling...

Warning - This article contains spoilers for The Cabin In The Woods, The Twilight Zone, Black Swan and The Red Shoes.

Ballet is not natural. Dancers perform exhausting routines with legs and feet turned out to bizarre angles, arms held just to the point where they really start to hurt (that’s when you know you’re doing it right), backs bending to angles of 90° and more, limbs held stock still while balancing on their toes, in bodies mathematically maintained in a state that contains absolutely not an ounce of fat but can sustain two or three hours of jumping and running around.

And then the female dancers add to all this by putting their entire weight on the points of their toes, feet bruising and bleeding, nails cracking, and the male »

'Interstellar' against 'Apes' and a parade of Marvel movies for Visual Effects Oscar

21 February 2015 4:01 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Since 2008, the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects has gone to a Best Picture contender: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (2008), "Avatar" (2009), "Inception" (2010), "Hugo" (2011), "Life of Pi" (2012) and "Gravity" (2013). This year, that stat holds no water, since none of this year's nominees are also up for the top prize. The Visual Effects Society went for "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" in a big way, and since 2002 at least one of their winners has gone on to repeat at the Oscars 10 times (among their categories, the Ves recognizes achievements in Visual Effects-Driven Features, Supporting Visual Effects, and Animated Character in live-action features): Hans Zimmer on collaborating with Christopher Nolan on 'Interstellar' and 'Dark Knight' trilogy (Video) -Break- 2002: "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (Visual Effects-Driven, Animated Charact...' »
