'Get On Up' (2014) Movie Review

21 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't expect biopics to ever give me the full story or even an accurate story for that matter. In fact, many documentaries are only giving us one side of the argument and sometimes less than that when compared to films based on a true story. So when it comes to Tate Taylor's take on the life of the "Godfather of Soul", James Brown, Get On Up plays like a film that gives us a small taste of the darkness that was in Brown's soul after a rough upbringing and a life in which he felt he was always on his own. The result is entertaining and inspiring while also being a little bloated in the middle. One thing, however, is for certain, Chadwick Boseman continues to impress, following up his performance in 42 with another "out of the park" portrayal of an iconic, bigger-than-life star.

Get On Up Review

29 July 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Chadwick Boseman does not look likes James Brown. He did not look like Jackie Robinson either before playing #42 in last year’s hit about the barrier-shattering athlete, but Boseman’s magnetism and charm made up for the actor’s leanness and lack of cosmetic similarity. Now, the young actor has mastered another legendary man of the 20th century, the groovy funkster whose howl on “I Got You (I Feel Good)” is still one of the most exhilarating moments in popular music.

As James Brown in Get On Up, Boseman wears a heavy jaw of make-up on his face, which could have been more distracting had the actor not nailed the slurred speech, the electric rasp, and the dazzling dancing feet of the pop music icon. It’s an performance that is as impressive as Jamie Foxx’s show-stopping turn as Ray Charles ten years ago. (Like Foxx, though, Boseman does »

This fall the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the final showing of the groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building, the future location of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, at Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles. Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), this ticketed exhibition explores the central role of costume design – from the glamorous to the very subtle – as an essential tool of cinematic storytelling.

The Academy is enhancing the V&A’s exhibition and will include more than 145 costumes from over 60 lenders. The Academy’s presentation will add more than 30 costumes to this landmark show, including Jared Leto’s costume from Dallas Buyers Club (Kurt and Burt, 2013) – a recent acquisition to the Academy’s collection – as well as costumes from such recent releases as The Hunger Games (Judianna Makovsky, 2012), Django Unchained (Sharen Davis, »

You'll Probably Be Moved by this Conversation with Actress Adepero Oduye...

27 June 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Before Lupita Nyong'o, there was Emayazty Corinealdi; before Emayatzy Corinealdi, there was Octavia Spencer; before Octavia Spencer, there was Adepero Oduye; before Adepero Oduye, there was... and so on. Not that I'm comparing these lovely actresses, but my intent is to simply highlight the fact that, on a near annual basis, especially in recent years (and maybe even if one goes back further, when Jennifer Hudson won her Oscar for "Dreamgirls"), that there seems to have always been an annual highlight of black actresses (usually 1 per year) who receive lots of acclaim and attention for what we could deem breakthrough roles, and promises of possibly grand Hollywood acting careers »

Jennifer Hudson Proudly Posts Pictures of Her Svelte Bikini Body on Instagram: "I Earned It!"

18 June 2014 5:43 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jennifer Hudson has never looked better! The "Walk It Out" singer shared a photo collage via Instagram Tuesday, which featured the svelte star modeling a yellow bikini during a recent vacation. "It would take mexico to get me to play on the beach! I'm so not that girl!" Hudson wrote in the caption. "But I work hard, I deserve it right ! Plus, I earned it!" Hudson, 32, parted ways with Weight Watchers in March after four years together. By the looks it, however, it would appear the Dreamgirls actress has had no trouble maintaining her 80-lb. weight loss. The diva reached her goal weight in November 2012, more than two years after she joined the program. "I'm at »

Guillermo del Toro Drops Out of Beauty And The Beast with Emma Watson

12 June 2014 4:25 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s been years since we’ve heard a solid update on Guillermo del Toro’s live-action Beauty and the Beast adaptation.  Harry Potter star Emma Watson attached herself as the lead back in 2012, and del Toro continued to develop the project as he tackled Pacific Rim.  Today we have serious movement on the Warner Bros. pic, but unfortunately it’s not exactly good news.  The ever-busy del Toro has now withdrawn himself from the project as director, opting instead to simply produce the pic.  Hit the jump for more. Per Deadline, Guillermo del Toro will no longer be directing Beauty and the Beast at Warner Bros., but he will remain involved with the project as a producer alongside Denise Dinovi.  Scheduling conflicts are singled out as the reason for del Toro’s departure, and one imagines Warner Bros. was ready to get this thing off the ground after years of development. »

Disney Taps Twilight's Bill Condon for a Live Action Beauty and the Beast Adaptation

7 June 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Unless they go really dark and focus a lot more on the beast than the beauty, our coverage of Disney's live action version of the popular fairy tale Beauty and the Beast will no doubt be sparse, but in light of the film's director, we figured we'd at least make you aware of it.

Per Variety, Bill Condon, who knows a thing or two about blockbusters, having helmed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Parts 1 and 2, has been set to direct a script by Evan Spiliotopoulos with Mandeville Films producing.

With Maleficent's recent $170 million (worldwide) opening weekend, you can bet Disney is hoping for more of the same. Beauty and the Beast has a strong track record already: The studio’s 1991 animated feature version grossed more than $375 million worldwide, spawned a Broadway play, and became one of the few animated films to receive a best picture Oscar nomination.

Given the success of the play, »

Disney Adds Another Live-Action Remake, Following Success of 'Maleficent' (Cocteau Trailer)

5 June 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Well, this was inevitable, right?  'Maleficent' stomped through the box office last weekend, netting $70 million in U.S. receipts and another $100 million abroad.  Although it's a matter of debate as to whether Disney has star Angelina Jolie to thank for that or the staying power of "Sleeping Beauty" in our collective unconscious--it's probably both--the bottom line, really, is...well, the bottom line. When a movie brings in money like that, the studio is bound to say: more, please. And more there will be. Variety reports that Disney is moving forward on a new live-action adaptation of the Oscar-nominated 1991 "Beauty and the Beast," itself a box office champ that brought in over $375 million worldwide. (Remember the Jean Cocteau classic, "La Belle et La Bete?" Clip below.) Bill Condon, the screenwriter behind "Chicago" and director of "Dreamgirls," is slated to direct, no doubt in large part because of his movie musical expertise. »

Disney's Making A Live-Action Beauty And The Beast Movie

5 June 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Maleficent wasn.t a game-changer. It was, instead, the latest in what is now becoming the status quo: Live-action takes on one-time animated classics that will attempt to appeal to a familiar audience base by telling them a timeless story using a different medium. And now we know which animated classic is going to get reworked. Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning director of Gods and Monsters, Kinsey, Dreamgirls and . yes . two Twilight movies, will take a swing at a live-action Beauty and the Beast for Disney. Variety reports that screenwriter Evan Spiliotopoulos has been tapped to write the script, after tackling scripts for such in-house animated sequels like Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure, The Jungle Book 2, Pooh.s Heffalump Movie and The Lion King 1 1/2. And HitFix added that Condon will be drawing not only from the Oscar-winning 1991 animated film, but also from the smash Broadway musical that ran for 13 years, »

Source: Getty / Steve Granitz Leonardo DiCaprio didn't want to be filmed for Keeping Up With the Kardashians. When he was at the same night club as Bruce and Brody Jenner, he "waited until they were done" before hanging out with his friends inside. Justin Bieber apologized after his second offensive n-word video surfaced, in which he turns his song "One Less Lonely Girl" into "One Less Lonely N-Word" and jokes about joining the Ku Klux Klan. After explaining how he needs to take responsibilities for his mistakes, he said, "At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did." Gwyneth Paltrow spoke out about negativity again. She thinks it changes the structure of water. Katy Perry opened up about her exes, talking about "going through all this sh*t" with ex-husband Russell Brand and the potential of getting back together with John Mayer. »

Bill Condon to Direct Disney's Live-Action Beauty And The Beast

5 June 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

With the success of Maleficent, Disney is looking to move fast on their live-action feature film adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. The studio has hired Twilight: Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon to bring the story to life.

No official plot details have been released, but it's Beauty and the Beast! I'm pretty sure you can figure it out. The script is being written by Evan Spiliotopoulos, who has written a ton of Disney's direct to video animated films.

The studio's 1991 animated movie was nominated for an Academy Award, pulled in more that $375 million, and spawned a fantastic Broadway show. 

Disney is also in the process of developing live-action versions of The Jungle Book, which is being directed by Jon Favreau, and Cinderella, which Kenneth Branagh is taking on. 

Condon also directed the musical Dreamgirls, and I think Beauty and the Beast will be a good film project for him. »

Condon To Helm Disney's Live-Action "Beauty"

5 June 2014 5:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Disney continues its plans to produce live-action re-imaginings of all its animated back catalogue with Bill Condon ("The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," "Dreamgirls") signing on to direct their live-action re-interpretation of "Beauty and the Beast" for the studio.

The film follows the likes of "Alice in Wonderland," "Oz: The Great and Powerful" and "Maleficent" which have all proven to be big box-office successes. At least three more such adaptations are in the works including 'Beast', Kenneth Branagh's "Cinderella" due out next year, and a live-action take on "The Jungle Book" currently in development.

Condon's name has been linked to the project for several months, but now it is finally confirmed. The filmmaker is currently prepping "A Slight Trick of the Mind" in which his "Gods and Monsters" star Ian McKellen plays a retired Sherlock Holmes who tries to solve one last case before he loses his keen mental faculties. »
