Watch: 'Room' Best Actress Contender Brie Larson (Exclusive Video)

21 September 2015 1:39 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

A24 harbors high awards hopes for Lenny Abrahamson's intense prison escape drama "Room," and so they took the film to world premiere at Telluride, where it popped with audiences and critics, and then to Toronto, where it took home the coveted audience award, which often presages a strong Oscar contender.  Read More: 'Room' Wins Toronto's Audience Award, Oscar Bellwether Finally, with "Room" (A24, October 16) actress Brie Larson, who was so fine as a conflicted social worker in "Short Term 12," after supporting roles in "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," "The United States of Tara," "The Spectacular Now," "21 Jump Street," and "Don Jon," gets a role worthy of her abilities (unlike follow-ups "The Gambler" and "Train Wreck").

50 Greatest Comic Book Movie Adaptations

1 September 2015 7:52 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

10. Watchmen

How do you go about adapting a supposedly unadapatable text? While faithful translations tend not to artistically successful, a faithful adaptation with fetishistic attention to detail can create something unique. While Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller had it comparatively easy when adapting Miller’s Sin City to screen as they more or less would just be recreating paintings but with moving parts, Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation painstakingly recreated much of Alan Moore’s tome by hand, capturing much of Moore’s world in camera. Snyder creates a lived-in and breathing universe, a key part to selling the idea to the audience of this time-hopping opus about the natural decline of superheroism. Watchmen is often accused of being too literal, speaking in the language of comics instead of cinema, but it is precisely this literal approach that makes Watchmen a stellar page-to-screen success. By being a “literal” film, it becomes personal, »

Aubrey Plaza Wants To Do A 'Golden Girls'-Esque Sitcom With Anna Kendrick - MTV

24 August 2015 2:53 PM, PDT | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick have been one of Hollywood’s hippest Bff brigades ever since they joined quick wit forces on “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World” five years ago. Now, thanks to the “Zac Efron train,” as Plaza described it to Elle Magazine, they teamed up on the big screen again for “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” — which Plaza alternatively titled “Alice and Tatiana Will F–k Up Your Wedding” because sweet, sweet sarcasm and such. Anna Kendrick Said 'Aloha' To Hawaii In The Most Anna Kendrick Way Ever Just as we expected, the two had a complete blast on the film’s Hawaiian set — and not just because of all the rainbows, crystal blue waters and rampant Efron shirtlessness going down in the Aloha State — so they’re already scheming up the next sick Aubrey-Anna collaboration, this time for the small screen. “Anna and I have had »

Inspired by console, computer, or arcade games, movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Wreck It Ralph, and the Resident Evil franchise take us into the often unrealistic world of gaming, where double-sided axes are as popular as iPhones, dinosaurs are totally real, and Michael Cera is an action hero.

This weekend, Rupert Friend (Pride and Prejudice), Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness), and Ciarán Hinds ("Game of Thrones," but also, like, everything) enter into the video game 'verse with Hitman: Agent 47

To celebrate all things pixel-related, we threw together a supercut of some of our favourite video game movies. Watch the video below, and you’ll gain 43Xp, 87Hp, and the irresistible urge to run straight home and kill some Resident Evil zombies.

Watch: Ryan Reynolds Is The Merc With The Mouth In First Irreverent, Nsfw Trailer For ‘Deadpool’

4 August 2015 8:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The signal-to-noise disconnect within social media, vociferous fan boys, nerd culture and every day moviegoers has been apparent in recent years. It seems the gap is closing and the geeks are close to inheriting the earth. But for every populist super hero movie or blockbuster that has crossed over into mainstream culture (“Avengers: Age Of Ultron,” “Jurassic World”), there’s always an outlier; a geek film that doesn’t connect outside the Comic-Con crowd (see “Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World,” “Kick Ass” parts one and two, “Dredd” and “Cowboys And Aliens” to name a few). But as super hero films and the like become the dominant form of big budget entertainment, are we entering an era where there will be far fewer misses than hits? Read More: 15 Comic-Con Movies And How They Performed In The Real World In a way, this puts a lot of pressure on 20th Century Fox’s “X-Men” spin-off movie “Deadpool. »

'Deadpool': Ryan Reynolds Visits 'Conan' in Costume

4 August 2015 6:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, it was confirmed that the red band trailer for the highly-anticipated Deadpool will debut on TBS' Conan tonight, Tuesday, August 4. The late-night talk show even changed the rating of their show to TV-ma, so they can show the violent and foul-mouthed R-rated footage on the air. With just hours left until the trailer debuts, Conan O'Brien posted a photo on his Twitter account, which reveals the host pictured next to Ryan Reynolds in his full Deadpool costume.

It isn't known if Ryan Reynolds will spend his entire appearance in the Deadpool costume, or what other antics the Merc With the Mouth will have in store for viewers tonight. Since the talk show's rating was changed to TV-ma, it's possible that both Ryan Reynolds and Conan O'Brien will take full advantage of the adult rating to curse up a storm throughout the night. It also isn't known if the »

Mark Webber Wants Your Money, But He Can't Tell You Why

Mark Webber, mostly known for his role in "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" as part of the Sex Bob Omb band with Alison Pill and Michael Cera and as Kiera Knightly’s fiance in "Laggies," is halfway through his first Kickstarter campaign for his secret movie and halfway to his goal of $50,000.

From what can be gleaned from the images on his Kickstarter page, it seems the narrative feature set to shoot this fall will be about his mother, »

Five great female-friendly comic-book adaptations

3 August 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Diary of a Teenage Girl is the latest comic book movie to feature a heroine, but women are still woefully underrepresented in the genre overall

Not many comic book movies start with a scruffy, smiling 15-year-old girl confessing: “I had sex today … Holy shit.” If we met Minnie, the protagonist of Marielle Heller’s adaptation of Phoebe Gloeckner’s 2002 graphic novel The Diary of a Teenage Girl in any other comic book adaptation, she’d most likely be the high school siren and love interest. If she’s lucky she might be a feisty foil in the mould of Anne Hathaway’s Catwoman or Anna Kendrick’s Stacey Pilgrim in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. But she wouldn’t have thoughts or a movie of her own.

The forthcoming films of Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel are long overdue, and hopefully will fare better than a lot of other past big-budget, »

Video of the Day: Watch a supercut of video game movies

24 July 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

With the number of individuals who enjoy both movies and video games increasing everyday, the former medium has adapted a number of the latter’s flagship franchises, with the Resident Evil series, Silent Hill, and Max Payne among the videogames that have made the jump to the big screen, with adaptations of Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed on the way. Numerous films have also been openly influenced by videogames while not being direct adaptations, such as Wreck-It Ralph and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Now, on the eve of the release of Pixels, another film that falls in the latter category, a supercut video of numerous videogame adaptations and influenced movies has been made. The video, in addition to featuring all the released films mentioned above, with the exception of Pixels, also includes scenes from Prince of Persia, Tron: Legacy, and Gamer, among others. The video can be seen below. »

Brie Larson on Playing Amy Schumer’s Sister in ‘Trainwreck’

23 July 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At a young age, Brie Larson has already built a remarkable resume of varied performances. She can do broad comedies (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,” “21 Jump Street”), indie dramas (“The Spectacular Now,” “Short Term 12”) and hold her own alongside some of the biggest names in movies like “The Gambler.” She’s also shown her stuff behind the camera, having written and directed (with Jessie Ennis and Sarah Ramos) the short film “The Arm,” which won a Short Film Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012.

Larson can currently be seen on the bigscreen in the Judd Apatow hit “Trainwreck” as Kim, the younger, yet more mature sister to Amy Schumer’s hard-partying journalist Amy. The role is a family affair, as Schumer’s real-life sister, Kim Caramele, serves as an associate producer on the film, in addition to being a writer-producer-performer on her sister’s hit series “Inside Amy Schumer. »

15 years in the making and ‘I Am Thor’ makes for the most memorable screening at the Fantasia Film Festival

20 July 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I Am Thor

Directed by Ryan Wise

2015, USA / Canada /Finland / Sweden

Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are often associated with masculinity, aggression, and machismo but even by Heavy metal standards, the artist known as Thor (a.k.a. Jon Miki Thor) is an absolute beast!

The Norse god impersonator, semi-professional bodybuilder, performance artist, b-movie actor, and all-around nice guy is the subject of I Am Thor, an 84 minute documentary by director Ryan Wise which shines some insight into Thor’s wild life and documents his long-running come back. With a music career spanning five decades, Thor is one of the legends of rock-n-roll that not enough people know exists —and hopefully this film will change that. 15 years in the making and I Am Thor is finally here, and totally worth the wait.

I’ve seen some remarkable screenings over my 19 years of attending the Fantasia Film Festival. I’ll never forget the enthusiastic, »

After premiering at SXSW earlier this year, the indie comedy 7 Chinese Brothers will put Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Moonrise Kingdom, Scott Pilgrim vs. The world) back into unlikeable mode next month. But thankfully, he doesn’t seem to be anywhere near the arrogant prick that he played in the Sundance selected Listen Up Philip. This time […]

Michael Cera to voice Robin in The Lego Batman Movie, passes on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

16 July 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Holy Superbad Batman! The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) has joined the cast of the upcoming The Lego Batman Movie as the Boy Wonder, Robin!

Will Arnett reprises his role as The Dark Knight for the film, which is set for release in 2017 and will be directed by The Lego Movie animation supervisor Chris McKay from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Linconl: Vampire Hunter).

With the news that Cera has snagged the role of Robin, his rumoured link to the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is now dead in the water, with the actor bowing out of talks for the film.

The Lego Batman Movie hits theaters on May 26th, 2017.

Scott Pilgrim's Michael Cera Will Voice 'Robin' In The Lego Batman Movie

16 July 2015 10:42 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Lego Batman has found its Robin! In what seems like a spot-on bit of voice-casting, THR report that Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World's Michael Cera has signed on to give life to the animated minifig version of the Boy Wonder in the flick, which is a spinoff from the mega-successful The Lego Movie. Cera's Arrested Development cast-mate Will Arnett will return to provide the voice of the Dark Knight, but we don't have any plot details just yet. Rumors have circulated that former live-action Batman actors such as Michael Keaton, Christian Bale and Adam West etc were being courted to cameo, but there's been nothing official on that. Chris McKay will helm from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith, with the original movie's directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller on board as producers. The Lego Batman Movie hits theaters on February 10, 2017. »

Forecast: 'Ant-Man''s Huge/Tiny $60M Opening

14 July 2015 9:22 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

2nd Forecast Update: Ant-Man pulled in $22.6M on Friday, with its Thursday take of $6.4M representing 28% of its gross. That figure is better than the Friday take of 2008's The Incredible Hulk, which brought in $21.5M. There's an asterix on that number, however, as the big green guy had a per-screen average of $6,125 on 3,505 screens. The latest Marvel entry from director Peyton Reed was on 3,856 screens for $5,872 per screen. Trainwreck is coming into the station faster than expected. Its three-day estimate stands at $28.9M, from a $10.7M Friday start on 3,178 screens and a $3,336 per screen average. This Friday tally too has a qualification. Director Judd Apatow's latest has a Friday total better than his biggest hit, Knocked Up, which made $9.8M, but Knocked was on 307 fewer screens (2,871) and had a better per-screen average of $3,415. Forecast Update: Ant-Man opened to $6.4M from Thursday shows, a respectable start but one that »

Marvel Studios Countdown: Comic-Con Celebrates the Many Identities of 'Ant-Man'

14 July 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Things looked bleak for Ant-Man. Filmmaker Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) stepped away after a long, slow dance with the project, leading fans to devour ashes and wear sackcloth and wait out the end of the world. Some of us got over it quicker than others. Marvel didn’t waste any of their own time with doom and gloom. They hired Adam McKay (Anchorman) to re-work Wright’s screenplay, and though McKay would’ve made an interesting directorial replacement, Marvel tapped Peyton Reed (Bring It On) to bring the superhero to life. It’s been a long year since this all went down, and the short memory of our news cycle and the internet outrage it’s often coupled with have settled to a place in which we’re all pretty okay now with this new...
