'Nightcrawler' Director Talks 'Tsunami of Superhero Movies'

23 February 2015 8:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

To find truly original stories at the local cineplex, we've had to rely on independent film the past two decades, as Hollywood seems intend on force feeding the masses remakes, sequels and superhero movies. One person who thinks there are far too many Marvel and DC adventures flooding the market at this current time is Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy. Speaking out against masked vigilantes and their vice grip on Hollywood, the Nightcrawler director used his win for 'Best First Feature' at the 30th Annual Independent Spirit Awards to rally his filmmaking troops and thank the independent directors weathering the storm. From his podium, he screamed:

"Independent film, the foundation and everybody here today, I think are holdouts against a tsunami of superhero movies that have swept over this industry. We have survived and we have thrived and I think that's true spirit."

His remarks ring truer than ever, as Marvel, »

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Oscars

19 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tron: Legacy.” “Salt.” “Real Steel.” “Rio.” “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.” “Ted.” “Prometheus.” “Star Trek Into Darkness.” “Despicable Me 2.” These are just some of the movies that have received Oscar nominations in various categories in the last few years (mostly thanks to technical prizes), perhaps starting to suggest to the layman that all you have to do is release a movie and you’ll get nominated for an Academy Award. Of course, many of the films above were deserving: few would argue that the sound editing in “Transformers,” or the visual effects in “Star Trek” weren’t world class. But while the awards are spread, rightly, wider and wider, it still leaves a lot of movies out in the cold, and it always has. Many of the greatest movies of all time were nominated for, or won, Oscars, but not all of them. And so, with this Sunday’s ceremony fast approaching, »

Robert Zemeckis to Direct Brad Pitt in Paramount Romantic Thriller

6 February 2015 2:54 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Paramount Pictures announced a new project today without a title or plot, but since Forrest Gump and Cast Away director Robert Zemeckis and actor Brad Pitt are attached to the film, it's still a pretty big deal. The film is merely described as a "sweeping romantic thriller" that comes from an original story by Steve Knight (The Hundred-Foot Journey, Dirty Pretty Things). In addition, it will be produced by Graham King (The Departed, Argo) and his Gk Films banner, who developed the project with Zemeckis and Real Steel producer Steve Starkey. This must be a hell of a project to announce without any details. »

Brad Pitt To Star In Untitled Romantic Thriller From Robert Zemeckis

6 February 2015 12:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount Pictures has announced today that one of their next top-shelf projects has locked in Brad Pitt to star with Robert Zemeckis set to direct. A co-op production that also includes Gk Films and New Regency, the movie has been described as a “sweeping romantic thriller” based on an original screenplay by Steve Knight.

For the screenwriter, this will no doubt come as welcome news. Knight’s latest theatrical title – Seventh Son – hasn’t exactly lit up the critical barometer nor the box office. The fact that two of the industry’s biggest names, Pitt and Zemeckis, are making one of his scripts is a big deal. After all, he also penned Locke and Eastern Promises, both solid character-based pieces, so this new talented crew ought to steer his newest script back on course.

Aside from the fact that the film is described as “epic” and “sweeping,” there’s not much else to go on. »

Grading The 2015 Super Bowl Commercials

1 February 2015 3:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The 2015 Super Bowl is more than just cheese products, football and Tom Brady's smug mug. HitFix is watching all the commercials along with you, so get out your red pen: we're grading all the ads as they happen. Follow along, we'll start the tally at kickoff, 3:30pm Pst. -- Fine, it's not kickoff yet, but I half-wish the pterodactyl from the "Jurassic World" trailer would sweep down and pick up Pete Carroll. "Think it will scare the kids?" asks Bryce Dallas Howard's clueless-sounding character. Do You Think? More sweaty shots of Chris Pratt's half-scared, all-brutally handsome face. Grade: B Chevy's "What if your TV went out?" commercial is the equivalent of your little brother poking your feet with a pencil and asking if its annoying. It is annoying. And the Cloverfieldian "cut-out" of my television lacks novelty. AC/DC keeps collecting "Back in Black" paychecks. Grade: D+ Speaking of paychecks, »

30 January 2015 8:48 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Black or White is the story of a grandfather, Elliott Anderson (Kevin Costner), who is suddenly left to care for his granddaughter, Eloise (Jillian Estell), by himself. But, when her paternal grandmother, Rowena Jeffers (Octavia Spencer), seeks custody with the help of her lawyer brother (Anthony Mackie), poor Eloise is caught between two families. With the best intentions, both families fight for what they feel is right and are soon forced to confront their true feelings about race, forgiveness, and understanding.

The writer/director of Black or White, Mike Binder, a native of Detroit, Michigan, is an award-winning and well-regarded actor, writer, director, and producer. Binder’s directorial debut came in 1992 with Crossing the Bridge and has included such acclaimed films as Reign Over Me (2007) and The Upside of Anger (2005), which also starred Costner. Actor Anthony Mackie, is perhaps best known as Sam Wilson/Falcon from Captain America: The Winter Soldier »

New TV Spot For 'Chappie'

13 January 2015 9:29 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On March 6th, the Hugh Jackman-starrer Real Steel 2 will roll into theaters. Wait. No. That's not right. 

The movie in question is Chappie, and far more promising than a sequel to that Shawn Levy film, it's actually the latest film from Neill Blomkamp- the man that gave us District 9 and Elysium. This original sci-fi action film will tell the story of an android named Chappie that is able to feel and think for itself. Shortly after his "birth" he is kidnapped by two criminals and raised as part of a dysfunctional family. Chappie suddenly finds himself in the crosshairs of Jackman's Vincent, who sees the robot as a threat to humanity.

Below is the latest TV spot for the film:

Chappie is played, via motion-capture, by frequent Blomkamp collaborator, Sharlto Copley. The cast also includes sci-fi royalty Sigourney Weaver, and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Newsroom).

Greg Ellwood recaps a recent Q&A that he moderated with Julianne Moore, the Best Actress frontrunner for "Still Alice." "The recent Cannes winner revealed that early on she told co-directors Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer that she wasn't going to perform anything she hadn't actually witnessed. 'I feel like even if I've read it about it and haven't seen it I don't know how to be completely accurate,' Moore says. 'All the behaviors in the movie were things I had seen or things had discussed with me.'"

Michael Keaton to Join Tom Hiddleston on Legendary's 'Skull Island'

7 January 2015 5:39 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though this fanmade trailer will be as close as we get to seeing Marvel vs. DC on the big screen, that won't stop Batman from meeting Loki. That's because Deadline reports Michael Keaton, fresh off his meta role in the much buzzed about Birdman, is finalizing a deal to join the cast of Kong: Skull Island, the Legendary Pictures production starring The Avengers and Thor villain Tom Hiddleston. There's no specifics on the characters they will play, but the film has been said to head to the mysterious and dangerous home of the titular king of apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island. And let's not forget that another Oscar-buzzed actor, Whiplash star J.K. Simmons also has a role in the film that will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer, Nick Offerman: American Ham) with a script by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein »
