Beautiful Disasters: "Roar"

29 June 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

There is a case to be made for home movies as the purest form of cinema. It’s folly, of course, to pit films against one another based on the circumstances under which they were made; to argue what is realer, and thus more valid, than the other. In a camera’s lens, especially, the lines of truth and lies blur and overlap. It’s just that in what we believe to be reality the stakes are always higher, the emotions elevated. One of the first films ever made, the Lumière brothers’ L'arrivée d'un train à La Ciotat, was a succinct 56 seconds that depicted the arrival of a train at its station in Lyon, France. When it was first shown to the public it was the audience’s virgin film-viewing experience, and it was reported that many were frightened by the illusion that the train was coming straight for them. »

Jurassic World climbs to eighth at the all time worldwide box office

28 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having become the fastest movie ever to gross a billion at the worldwide box office on Monday, Universal’s Jurassic World has now climbed to eighth in the list of the highest-grossing movies of all time.

Jurassic World retained top spot at the Us box office this weekend at the third time of asking, becoming only the fifth film to break the $500 million mark domestically, and has pulled in a whopping $1.238 billion and counting around the globe.

The Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel currently sits in eighth place in the all time chart between Frozen ($1.274 billion) and Iron Man 3 ($1.215 billion), and is sure to catch the year’s highest-earners Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.369 billion) and Fast & Furious 7 ($1.511 billion).

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Silver Chair Finally Has a Script

25 June 2015 2:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It's been nearly five years since the last Chronicles of Narnia film, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, hit theaters and almost two years since there was any word on a potential sequel, but now a little hope has been revived by way of screenwriter David Magee's twitter activity. As reported on NarniaWeb, Life of Pi and Finding Neverland scribe Magee announced on his private twitter page that he has completed his first draft of The Silver Chair after spending more than a year working on the project. See the full text of his tweet below. "Completed the final draft of The Silver Chair today. I’ve had the immense pleasure to work on the project for over a year now. So fulfilling.” While this is certainly a very unofficial update, it's a welcome word of progress for fans who haven't heard a peep since the Mark Gordon Company and »

Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea's Pacific Standard production company is developing a film adaptation of Garth Callaghan's memoir "Napkin Notes" for New Line. The pair will produce the project.

Callaghan's book deals with how he began writing short inspirational notes on napkins to put in his daughter Emma’s lunchbox daily. It became more significant when he was given five separate cancer diagnoses. [Source: Variety]

Narnia: The Silver Chair script is complete

24 June 2015 10:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Chronicles Of Narnia take another step back towards the big screen, as a Silver Chair script is finished...

The fourth The Chronicles Of Narnia movie has taken a step forward, with the news that a draft of the screenplay has been completed. Screenwriter David Magee (who received Oscar nominations for his Life Of Pi and Finding Neverland scripts) Tweeted the news, writing "Completed the final draft of The Silver Chair today. I’ve had the immense pleasure to work on the project for over a year now. So fulfilling".

The Tweet is no longer visible at his account, but the folks at Narniaweb have been in touch with Magee, and he's confirmed the news.

There's still a long way to go on this one, of course. The Mark Gordon Company is the new custodian of the Narnia films, and it has to decide if it's happy with Magee's screenplay, »

Jurassic World becomes the fastest movie to gross $1 billion worldwide

22 June 2015 1:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This won’t come as much of a surprise given that it ended its second weekend yesterday with $981 million in the bank, but Jurassic World has crossed the $1 billion mark today.

The Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel becomes the fastest movie to reach that milestone, doing so in just 13 days of release around the globe, and shattering the previous record of 17 days set by Fast & Furious 7 earlier this year.

Not a bad first half of 2015 for Universal Pictures

Jurassic World is the twenty-second movie ever to hit $1 billion worldwide, and is currently the third biggest film of the year behind Avengers: Age of Ultron ($1.369 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.511 billion). It looks set to topple both of those in the coming weeks to become the highest earner of 2015 to date, although Star Wars: The Force Awakens will likely have something to say about that when it arrives in December.

Jurassic World just shy of $1 billion worldwide after two weekends on release

21 June 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After shattering domestic and global opening records last weekend, Universal’s dinosaur blockbuster Jurassic World has pushed its worldwide gross to an astonishing $981 million after just 12 days on release around the globe. It should surpass the $1 billion mark tomorrow, which would exclipse the record set by fellow Universal release Fast & Furious 7 earlier this year when it reached that milestone in 17 days.

Domestically, Jurassic World retained the top spot this weekend, adding an extra $102 million and fending off competition from Pixar’s Inside Out (which opened in second with $91 million – the highest ever opening for an original film). The Colin Trevorrow-helmed sequel has earned $398.23 million Stateside, and will hit $400 million tomorrow, its eleventh day of release in North America, making it the fastest film to do so (The Avengers holds the current record with 14 days).

Jurassic World shatters worldwide opening weekend record with $511 million haul

14 June 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the news that Jurassic World has debuted in the States with the second-biggest ever opening weekend of $204.6 million, it’s now being reported that the Colin Trevorrow-directed sequel has shattered the global record with an astonishing $511.8 million haul around the globe – making it the first film to ever surpass the $500 million mark in a single weekend.

In addition to its North American debut, Jurassic World has amassed $307.2 million from international markets (including $100 million in China). That figure falls short of the $314 million international opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, but the final Potter movie only managed $169.2 million domestically, for a grand total of $483.2 million.

Chris Pratt signed on for Jurassic World sequels

14 June 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After attaining the biggest worldwide opening in box office history, it seems we’ll be seeing more from the Jurassic franchise, and Chris Pratt will be involved.

In a recent interview with EW, Pratt was asked if he would be returning for a sequel to Jurassic World, to which he replied, as comically as always: “I am. They have me for I think 38 movies or something.”

Pratt continues in the interview to state that he watched Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom for inspiration of his Jurassic World character. He said that it was important for him to watch such “movies where there’s a conflict between the male and female characters that reads as sexual chemistry.” There is most certainly an Indiana feel to his character, which will surely only fuel calls for his role in any future remake.

‘Jurassic World’ Star Irrfan Khan Strikes Balance Between Hollywood, Bollywood

12 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Irrfan Khan is one of India’s most visible film exports, striking a balance between the glitter of Bollywood and Hollywood. He’s starred in such Indian pics as mistaken-identity romancer “The Lunchbox,” cultural drama “The Namesake” and, most recently, alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone, in road movie “Piku” — which has scored more than 1 billion rupees ($15.6 million) worldwide, and counting. And he’s well known to U.S. audiences for roles in films that include “Life of Pi,” “The Amazing Spider-Man” and “Slumdog Millionaire.”

His next Hollywood projects are also high-profile: “Jurassic Park” sequel “Jurassic World” (which rolls out globally June 10) and Ron Howard’s mystery thriller “Inferno,” based on the novel by Dan Brown, with Tom Hanks reprising the role of Robert Langdon from “The Da Vinci Code” and “Angels & Demons,” slated for an October 2016 release.

You’ve got a T-Rex? Six of the most believable cinematic creations

11 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To celebrate the release of Jurassic World, in cinemas now across the globe, I’ve decided to take a trip through 5 of my favourite on-screen creations that have defied the laws of supposed reality. We’re talking those creatures that capture the imagination when they’re first seen but also made you disregard that they weren’t even real.

Let’s begin…

6. Caesar from Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) (Dir. Rupert Wyatt)

I must admit my movie mind was cautious before the re-launch of another Apes saga but once you see Wyatt’s version that came complete with Andy Serkis’ Imaginarium monkey, sorry Ape, Caesar, then the game was changed forever.

Caesar is an exceptional creation and not just as they’ve given us the believability factor but because it’s done with all the correct intentions. Gone are the days where we know there are humans under the suits, »
