'Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb' Gets an M.C. Escher Poster

22 September 2014 7:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The teaser trailer for this winter's sequel Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb arrived this past summer, and now 20th Century Fox has unveiled a new poster for the film starring Ben Stiller. It's certainly one of the better posters we've seen for the franchise as it takes the ensemble cast that includes Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Rami Malek and more, and puts them into an M.C. Escher style image with staircases that don't seem to end. Yes, Robin Williams is in the poster too (this is one of his final performances) and you can even spot a tiny Steve Coogan and Owen Wilson if you scan carefully. Look! Here's the new poster for Shawn Levy's Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb from Fox: Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, Real Steel, Date Night »

The hidden family heartache behind director Shawn Levy's 'This Is Where I Leave You'

20 September 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Shawn Levy is what happens when someone who has never forgotten what it means to be a boy becomes a dad.

The director of Real Steel, the Night at the Museum movies, and the new bittersweet family comedy This Is Where I Leave You (in theaters now), is an undeniable family guy. The father of four girls, he’s known for making movies about households run amok (2003’s Cheaper By the Dozen) and parents who desperately want an evening away (2010’s Date Night,) as well as fathers who redeem themselves in their kids’ eyes with the help of boxing robots or magical museums. »

Film Review: Unoriginal, Unfunny ‘This is Where I Leave You’ a Poor Man’s ‘August: Osage County’

19 September 2014 7:02 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Jason Bateman and an all-star cast got me there. The unfunny copycat story left me regretting it. If you don’t start with a solid plot that’s at least somewhat new, it doesn’t matter how many “A”-listers you throw into an ensemble. They’re just individuals doing the best they can with weak material.

But the film’s fatal flaw is it can’t figure out who it is – a comedy, drama or dramedy? – and it didn’t do just one thing well.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

On the surface, the new comedy from director Shawn Levy (“Real Steel,” “The Internship”) and rookie writer and novelist Jonathan Tropper might have seemed promising. Just put the combined talents of Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Rose Byrne, Adam Driver, Timothy Olyphant, Kathryn Hahn, Dax Shepard, Abigail Spencer, Corey Stoll and Connie Britton in the same story and you’ve got a winner, »

This is Where I Leave You | Review

17 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

This is Where I Judge You: In the Great Well of Family Drama, Levy Is Dry

Based on the acclaimed novel by Jonathan Tropper, who adapts his own screenplay, This Is Where I Leave You hardly lives up to the Sirkian soap as its delightfully sappy title would lead you to predict. Tropper, with the aid of mainstream heavy Shawn Levy (who sports a resume that includes those Night at the Museum films and Real Steel), has managed to give us a film that feels like the Grand Hotel of family reunion dramas. A nest of WASPs wades around under the disguise of their mixed Jewish ancestry to gimmicky effect in a drama about a large number of otherwise privileged people chronically unhappy with their inability to transcend their conditioning and seek fulfillment from a fabricated, pedestrian lifestyle. Levy and Tropper aim for middle ground with a portrait of familial »

‘Real Steel’ Sequel In The Works?

10 September 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director Shawn Levy has revealed that work on a sequel to 2011’s Real Steel has begun in secret. Real Steel starred Hugh Jackman as a washed-up boxer who spends his summer with his estranged son building a battle bot called Atom to compete in a robot boxing tournament. Whilst promoting new movie This Is Where I Leave You, the director shared that he and his leading man Jackman have been trying to create an idea for a second film:

“We have been quietly developing a sequel to Real Steel for three and a half years. We’ve come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I would only make it if the plot feels fresh, but also the character journeys feel fresh, and we’ve found both but never at the same time. It’s ongoing. I know the clock is ticking. That movie, weirdly, for a movie that »

A Real Steel Sequel Has Secretly Been in Development

10 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I surprisingly enjoyed Shawn Levy and Hugh Jackman's robot boxing movie Real Steel. I went into it with low expectations and came out completely entertained. In a recent interview with Comingsoon, Levy revealed that he has been secretly working on a sequel since the first movie was released.  

"We have been quietly developing a sequel to Real Steel for three and a half years. We've come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I would only make it if the plot feels fresh, but also the character journeys feel fresh, and we've found both but never at the same time. It's ongoing. I know the clock is ticking. That movie, weirdly, for a movie that did very well globally–it did okay domestically–but the love for Real Steel remains kind of unique as far as rabid fans who ask me all the time for another one.

Shawn Levy talks Real Steel 2

8 September 2014 11:00 PM, PDT | TotalFilm | See recent TotalFilm news »

Shawn Levy has been talking about a potential follow-up to his 2011 film Real Steel, and has revealed that he has been working on a sequel for some time now. The first film followed Hugh Jackman as a washed-up former boxer, who turns to the brave new world of robot boxing in order to recapture his glory days... “We have been quietly developing a sequel to Real Steel for three and a half years,” says Levy. “We’ve come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I would only make it if the plot feels fresh, but also the character journeys...

Shawn Levy Says He’s Been ‘Quietly Developing’ Real Steel 2

8 September 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We were talking Real Steel 2 well before the first film even came out, but now, three years later, we’re still without that sequel.  However, that doesn’t mean director Shawn Levy isn’t thinking about it.  In fact, he said he’s been “quietly developing” it for years now. The first film starred Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up boxer who turns to robot boxing to make a living.  After his robot is destroyed in a fight, Charlie’s stuck without a contender and with a significant amount of debt, leaving him with no choice, but to try and turn an old sparring bot named Atom into a champion.  Hit the jump to find out what Levy had to say about the sequel. While at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting his latest, This Is Where I Leave You, Levy told ComingSoon the following: "We have been quietly »

Real Steel 2 Might Happen After All

8 September 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Way back before the first Real Steel hit theatres, director Shawn Levy and star Hugh Jackman inked themselves into contracts that meant one thing. The studio sensed they had a hit on their hands. They wanted to secure the movie’s stars before the film blew up into an worldwide sensation.

And then… it didn’t.

In a frankly baffling result, Real Steel bagged $300 million at the worldwide box office – but didn’t get a follow-up. In 2014 that amount is enough to get the greenlight for a spinoff TV show, a parallel prequel franchise and more merchandise than is humanly possible for one person to acquire. It received decent critical acclaim and audiences obviously loved it, but something meant a sequel was not rushed into production immediately.

Cut to four years later, and Levy discussed the long-awaited sequel with the folks over at Superhero Hype during Tiff. In town to »

Work on Real Steel 2 Pushing Forward

8 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When one thinks of the successes of Hugh Jackman, flashes of snikt snikt Wolverine blades or those incredible pipes out of Les Miserables come to mind. But the Australian A-Lister still holds a special place in his heart for Charlie Kenton, the robot boxing promoter (or boxing robot promoter?) at the center of 2011's Real Steel. It turns out, Jackman is still eying a comeback for this character. Word of Jackman's interest comes from Real Steel director Shawn Levy. While promoting his latest, This Is Where I Leave You, at the Toronto International Film Festival, Levy spoke to Coming Soon about the possibility of a Real Steel sequel. Levy not only revealed that Hugh Jackman is open to reprising the role that had him playing with life-size Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots, but also that a sequel has been in the works under the radar for some time.

Review: An expert cast makes dysfunctional family pain funny in 'This Is Where I Leave You'

8 September 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One of the overriding messages of almost any film festival is "Wow, families are screwed up." What makes a dysfunctional family film work is when the specifics of how one particular family is broken manages to somehow illuminate something universal about how difficult that dynamic can be overall. There are times when I feel like I should call my parents and yell at them for being normal and loving and taking great care of me because maybe I'd be a more tormented and successful artist if only they'd been selfish dicks. At last year's Toronto Film Festival, one of the hottest tickets was "August: Osage County," with John Wells adapting the Tracy Letts play as an "Oh, my god, Meryl Streep is great" vehicle. I was in that initial line last year for about an hour, surrounded by people who were positively frantic to get in, and they seemed genuinely »
