You Decide: Who will will Original Screenplay Oscar? 'Boyhood,' 'Foxcatcher' ...?

13 September 2014 5:09 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Who will win the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay? You can now make your predictions in our prediction center. -Break- You Decide: Who will will Adapted Screenplay Oscar? 'Unbroken,' 'Gone Girl' ...? It's hard to identify a common theme in this Oscar race; in the last 10 years, the award has gone to dramas ("Crash") and comedies ("Little Miss Sunshine," "Juno"), true stories ("Milk") and fiction ("The Hurt Locker"), period films ("The King's Speech") and sci-fi ("Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Her"). But if there's one thing a screenplay winner usually needs, it's broad academy support. The last nine winners in a row were also Best Picture nominees. A number of strong Best Picture hopefuls might contend for their original scripts, including "Boyhood," written and directed by two-time past Oscar-nominee Richard »

Review: Melancholy 'The Skeleton Twins' Starring Kristin Wiig & Bill Hader

10 September 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For whatever reason, comedians have never received the same degree of respect as their dramatic counterparts —that is, until they take on more serious material. The road to critical esteem is littered with actors making the transition from comedy to drama (think Steve Carell in "Little Miss Sunshine" or Bill Murray in "Broken Flowers"), and the latest pair to cross over are former ”Saturday Night Live” stars Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, both delivering impressive turns as a pair of depressive siblings in the dramedy “The Skeleton Twins.” The film opens with concurrent, unsuccessful, suicide attempts from the two: Maggie (Wiig) is a dental assistant living in the small New York town she grew up in, while Milo (Hader) is a struggling actor in La whose recent breakup sent him off the deep end. Though the pair have not spoken in 10 years, Milo’s situation brings him back home to stay with his sister, »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

'Ender's Game' Star -- My Trailer Better Be As Big As Abigail Breslin's

6 September 2014 12:20 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Size definitely mattered for the teenage stars of "Ender's Game" ... who had a mine's-bigger-than-yours attitude on the set ... at least as far as their dressing room trailers were concerned. Both Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld made sure they didn't get stuck with a dinky or crappy trailer ... by including specific language in their minor's contracts. Studios are required to file these with the court for all actors under 18. According to the legal docs obtained by »

Maps To The Stars Review [Tiff 2014]

4 September 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a stretch in the mid-aughts, it looked as though Canadian provocateur David Cronenberg had gone a bit Hollywood, despite never shooting any of his films there. Having built a career on the psychologically and visually grotesque, the three-peat of A History of Violence, Eastern Promises and A Dangerous Method saw Cronenberg attracting big names to awards-buzz material that, while still beholden to his darker impulses, played well with critics. Then 2012’s Cosmopolis started him down a slippery slope leading back to material as confounding as it was disturbing. His latest, Maps to the Stars, marks Cronenberg’s full-blown relapse into misanthropic weirdness, but with more expensive drugs at his disposal.

The first of his pictures to actually shoot in America is just as much concerned with atrophying empire as Cosmopolis was, but centers on the sunny Hollywood rot of the entertainment industry, instead of New York’s well-tailored economic sociopathy. »

Excerpt: Producer Sees New Opportunities for Independent Films in ‘Hope for Film’

29 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

I started using the phrase “a complete systems reboot” to describe what was needed for the film industry. Unless this happened, we were fated to stay mired in an outdated and unsustainable model. In the 1990s, two key tactics of independent producers were to make movies for underserved audiences and to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace. Independent film used to be a business of singles, not home runs — where a producer aimed for a million-dollar box office gross on a $200,000 spend. This approach allowed directors to experiment and take real risks in both form and content. And it worked because there were more newspaper film critics, arthouse theaters and foreign sales. But then “Pulp Fiction” exploded on the scene, and independent filmmaking became the business of profit margins rather than the underserved audience. You now had to make movies for everyone (be it “Little Miss Sunshine,” “Juno” or “Crouching Tiger, »

‘Foxcatcher’ Teaser Trailer #3: Going for the Gold

28 August 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Those who are already familiar with the story of millionaire John du Pont and Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz will already know that upcoming biographical drama Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell as the former and Channing Tatum as the latter, won’t be a happy-go-lucky kind of sports movie. Those who saw Carell’s name attached and were hoping for something along the lines of Cool Runnings should probably look elsewhere.

Carell is best known for his comedic roles in movies like The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Anchorman, but he’s also done his fair share of straight acting, perhaps most notably in the 2006 drama Little Miss Sunshine. In Foxcatcher Carell looks almost unrecognizable in the role of du Pont, and the film has already received a great deal of praise in early reviews.

The first teaser trailer for Foxcatcher had a distinctly foreboding tone and the second was even ...

26 August 2014 3:19 PM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Lionsgate Entertainment has acquired distribution rights for the zombie thriller Maggie. This film was expected to premiere at the Toronto Int. Film Festival. However, this premiere date will be delayed. Instead, Maggie will be released later in 2015. This film, which is officially complete, involves a zombie virus, which infects a young woman; her father is powerless to save her. Fans will recognize several of the cast from the film, including Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine), Joely Richardson (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Laura Cayouette. A few more details on the film are below. Maggie is an emotional tale of family ties. A worldwide virus is reducing the populace to man-eating flesheaters. Also, a father's love is tested when his daughter becomes ill and Wade (Schwarzenegger) must decide if he can watch Maggie (Breslin) devolve into something less than human. A trailer is expected soon »

Schwarzenegger Zombie Movie ‘Maggie’ Releasing in Early 2015

26 August 2014 2:52 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It kind of threw people for a loop when the first image of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the upcoming film Maggie first circulated the Interwebs. For those who weren’t aware of the project’s announcement or casting, the film stars Schwarzenegger (obvs) alongside Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) in a zombie movie that is decidedly different from something like Day of the Dead or even Zombieland (which Breslin also starred in).

Maggie uses the premise of the zompocalypse to tell a much more intimate, indie-style story about a girl named Maggie (Breslin) who is one of many people infected in the zombie outbreak. Knowing her impending doom is approaching, Maggie finds comfort at home on the family farm, in the ...

Lionsgate Acquires Zombie Film ‘Maggie’, Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin

26 August 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Wade knows his daughter Maggie is succumbing to an infection that will inevitably turn her into a zombie, but he’s hoping his fervent love will keep her human for as long as possible. With its Tiff world premiere right around the corner, the zombie drama Maggie has been picked up by Lionsgate and will now forego playing at the festival, looking to debut instead via an early 2015 theatrical release.

The news of Maggie not playing at Tiff comes from The Hollywood Reporter. Lionsgate now holds the film’s North American distribution rights. We have the official press release with full details below (a big thanks to Collider for the press release!).

“A Midwestern farmer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) stays by the side of his beloved teenage daughter (Abigail Breslin) even as she slowly turns into a cannibalistic zombie, in this audacious, genre-bending debut feature from director Henry Hobson.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger Zombie Movie Maggie Acquired by Lionsgate for Early 2015 Release; Will Now Skip Tiff

26 August 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the more offbeat movies that was poised to premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival was Maggie, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a father who struggles to come to terms with the fact that his daughter (Abigail Breslin) is slowly becoming a zombie.  I say “was” because Lionsgate announced today that it has acquired distribution rights to the film and, per THR, will be pulling it out of Tiff.  Instead of debuting at the festival, the studio has set a Maggie release date for early 2015, though a specific theatrical bow has not yet been determined.  It's a bit of an odd move to pull the film out of Tiff, and not exactly a great sign if Lionsgate wants to control the flow of reviews for the pic. The Black List script was penned by John Scott 3 and directed by Henry Hobson, with Joely Richardson taking on »

Are Vma Winners Daniels the Franchise Film Directors of Tomorrow?

25 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last night, amidst the butts and the Feminism and the important message from Miley Cyrus, the VMAs bestowed its latest award for Best Direction to Daniels, aka Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, for helming the Lil Jon and DJ Snake music video for “Turn Down For What.” You didn’t miss that part of the show, because this category isn’t millennial-friendly enough for the telecast (nor was the one given to Oscar-nominated art director Anastasia Masaro), but somewhere in the night there were some Moonman statues given to a duo that might just be the franchise film directors of the future. In winning the award, Kwan and Scheinert follow in the footsteps of such notable directors as David Fincher (The Social Network), Spike Jonze (Her), Adam Yauch (Awesome; I Fuckin’ Shot That!), Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo), Tarsem Singh (Mirror Mirror), Jake Scott (Welcome to the Rileys), Samuel Bayer (Nightmare on Elm Street), Steve Barron (the »

7 Absurd Feel Good Movies That We Really Really Really Ridiculously Need Right Now

21 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

From Robin Williams’ suicide to James Foley to the shooting death of Mike Brown and the ongoing tension in Ferguson, Missouri, that it inspired, it’s been a really crappy month. The idea that there’s always something bad going on seems to have reached new heights, obliterating the Rule of Three and morphing social media into a daredevil experience – stay current if you dare. In times like these we need moments of recalibration, feel-good experiences that allow us a reprieve from the negative. As movie fiends, film is the perfect safe-haven, or so one would think. During the mess of drama this week I started Googling feel-good movie lists and was shocked to see how many required the viewer to feel bad before they felt good (if at all). Lists included the melancholic Little Miss Sunshine, Robin Williams’ own dark suicide comedy World’s Greatest Dad, the Holocaust drama Schindler’s List, and »

New Line Plans 'One Plus One' Adaptation

20 August 2014 4:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New Line Cinema has acquired the rights to Jojo Moyes' new best-selling novel One Plus One for a feature adaptation, with the author set to write the screenplay adaptation herself.

The plot follows a single mother with two children, one who is constantly harassed by bullies at school, while the other is a math prodigy. When an amazing academic opportunity opens up on the other side of the country, the mother embarks on a road trip with her children, with the help of her eccentric billionaire employer.

The book was published in the U.K. in February before debuting in the U.S. last month, where it opened at the #11 spot on the New York Times best-sellers list. The story has been compared to cinematic hits such as Little Miss Sunshine, About a Boy and Bridget Jones's Diary.

The project doesn't have a director or producers attached at this time, »
