16 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Jaden Smith isn’t appearing in Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix series “The Get Down” or confounding people with his enigmatic Twitter presence, he’s releasing new music videos that feature him vomiting in the Wild West. Today, Smith dropped the video for his new song “Fallen,” which he co-directed alongside Miles Cable, that features him roaming around a Wild West town while he occasionally vomits and croons lyrics that reference bell hooks and profess that “love is a strong word.” The video was shot at the same ranch as the HBO original series “Westworld.” The end of the video promotes a new project from Smith entitled “Syre.” Watch the video below.

New Batman Easter Eggs Found in Suicide Squad Extended Cut

28 November 2016 1:30 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While fans still have a few weeks before they can pick up the Suicide Squad Extended Edition on Blu-ray and DVD, it is currently available on the Digital HD format. We have already seen bloopers and deleted scenes from this extended edition, but today we have a few new Easter Eggs that one fan discovered after watching this new cut. All of these Easter Eggs offer subtle nods to Batman lore, which are seen in a shot of the Gotham City skyline.

A Reddit user posted a new photo from a scene of the Gotham City skyline, which features the logos for Ace Chemicals, along with logos for the Gotham Chronicle and the Gotham Telegraph. This scene in question takes place just before the action cuts to a scene with Deadshot (Will Smith) and his young daughter. As fans of the DC Comics know, Ace Chemicals plays an important part in the Joker's origin story. »

Suicide Squad Deleted Scene Has Harley Quinn Chasing Down the Joker

14 November 2016 11:53 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we reported that the new Extended Cut of Suicide Squad will have 11 minutes of extra footage that wasn't seen in the theatrical cut. Today we have a clip that showcases a new scene that wasn't featured in theaters, where Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) sees a motorcycle laying on the ground, and has a flashback to an earlier moment in time involving The Joker (Jared Leto). As it turns out, The Joker had dumped Harleen Quinzel, but she wouldn't let that stand.

Entertainment Weekly debuted this scene, which shows a distraught Harley Quinn chasing down The Joker on her motorcycle, while he drives his exotic sports car. When The Joker refuses to acknowledge her, Harley speeds up ahead of him, skidding her bike to the pavement, forcing The Joker to stop in front of her. A crazed Harley starts pounding on the hood of his car, telling him in no uncertain terms, »

Will Smith Makes A Bid For Oscar Gold In New Collateral Beauty Trailer

10 November 2016 8:50 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Will Smith may have given a strong performance in Suicide Squad, and was probably one of the few bright spots in what was an otherwise mediocre film, but it’s Collateral Beauty that has the actor making his best bid for Oscar gold this year.

The star-studded drama comes to us from director David Frankel and certainly looks like it’s going to be turning heads come awards season, as it follows Smith’s ad man who “begins a downward spiral after a tragic event but recovers in an unusual way.” It’s got all the makings of an Oscar favorite, backed by a supporting cast that boasts names like Edward Norton, Keira Knightley, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Michael Pena, Naomi Harris and more.

It’s a roster of talent sure to make anyone drool at the mouth, and though an all-star cast doesn’t always equate to a stellar film, »

10 November 2016 7:13 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When a successful New York advertising executive suffers a great tragedy he retreats from life.&#160While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time and Death.&#160&#160But it's not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses&#160that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty.&#160

Life Lessons: What You Can Learn From the Movies

2 November 2016 3:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

How many times have you watched a movie and thought, “This is my life!”? Some of the best, most successful and memorable movies are relatable. Even when you don’t see your life reflected on film, you can learn a lot about your own life and may be inspired to change. These movies can teach you a few important lessons in life and entertain at the same time:

“Don’t Give Up”

For years, parents, teachers, and even motivational posters have reminded us to keep going and although it’s solid, sound advice, it can come across as a little trite at times. Fortunately, movies can deliver the same message without eliciting an eyeroll. Here are a few that will inspire you to keep going when the going gets tough:

Christmas 2016: the major movies heading to cinemas

25 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Oct 28, 2016

Looking ahead to the movies heading to cinemas in time for Christmas...

The festive season is a great time to go to the pictures. There’s nothing quite like taking solace when it’s cold outside by cramming in with some like-minded folk to see a (hopefully) great movie. 

Unsurprisingly, Hollywood studios have cottoned on to this. Year on year, there seems to more and more choice at the cinema come Christmas time. It’s almost like a second summer season, in terms of the sheer volume of major movies on offer. This isn’t likely to change any time soon, especially when you look at the cash banked by Star Wars: The Force Awakens last Christmas. And that's not to mention the festive season's nearness to the Oscar race, which means that the major movies keep coming well into January.

There are many movies rocking around the multiplex during this Yuletide, »

Suicide Squad Extended Cut Has Over 10 Minutes of New Footage

24 October 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this month, we showed you the extended cut trailer for Warner Bros.' DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, along with details revealing this new version will feature 13 minutes of extra footage not seen in theaters. It seems that number was just a bit off, with a new image of the Blu-ray packaging announcing that there are only going to be 11 minutes of extra footage when it debuts on Digital HD November 15 and on Blu-ray and DVD December 13. We now have details on the special features that will be included in this extended edition.

A Reddit user posted the back side of the Suicide Squad Blu-ray cover. It reveals that the theatrical edition is 123 minutes long, while the extended cut clocks in at 134 minutes. No new scenes have been released for this extended cut yet, but a video debuted in August detailing a number of the deleted scenes that were »

Will Smith's Son Jaden Smith Claims He Used to Be a Vampire

21 October 2016 4:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Anyone who follows Jaden Smith on Twitter knows that the teenage actor is a little off his rocker. He started off in Hollywood at a young age, starring in the Karate Kid remake, and has since followed in his parents' footsteps, becoming a hot star on the rise. But apparently, as he tells it, he used to walk amongst the dead!

No, really. While describing his Goth phase in an interview, courtsey of Project Casting, Jaden Smith claims he used to be a real-life vampire. But he has since been saved. Some might think this a bit of tongue and check banter from a very creative teenager, but at 18, sources say he was serious. While we don't actually believe he was a 'real' vampire, it is a fun story for Halloween.

Jaden Smith has become almost more well-known for his wild style and eccentric behavior than he has for his handful of movies. »

Suicide Squad: Extended Cut Blu-Ray Details and Trailer Revealed

5 October 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Much like they did with Batman v. Superman, Warner Bros. is releasing an extended cut of Suicide Squad when it lands on blu-ray.  Today, they've announced the details of the upcoming release, the special features, and debuted a trailer showing some of that promised new footage.  Come inside to learn more!  

Well this is interesting, if not wholly expected.  It seems that WB is keen to keep releasing Extended Edition versions of their DC comic book films.  While that sounds like I'm being negative, I'm more flabbergasted than anything.  The extended version of Batman v. Superman that hit just a bit ago is by far the better version of the film.  When Suicide Squad was initially released, much was made of how muuch footage was obviously cut and how much the reshoots changed things up.  

While David Ayer vehemently defended the theatrical release, calling it "his cut" of the film, »

A look at the evolution of Will Smith on his birthdayA look at the evolution of Will Smith on his birthdayAdriana Floridia9/25/2016 11:35:00 Am

Will Smith is one of the biggest movie stars we have, and today on his 48th birthday, we're taking a look at his evolution.

Smith's journey has been both entertaining and impressive. From his days on television, starring as "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air", to space westerns, actual westerns, and a couple of Oscar nominations, let's take a look at the career of one of our favourites, Will Smith.

You may not have realized it, but before he was the Fresh Prince, Will Smith already had begun his work in film, and a franchise that would continue to garner success through the years, with the first Bad Boys movie. Co-starring Martin Lawrence, the two played bad-ass detectives who protect a witness to a murder while solving a drug crime. »

Apple iTunes Hikes Prices of Studios’ 10-Movie Packs to Up to $50

13 September 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After offering six different 10-movie bundles for a special one-day price of $9.99 on Monday, Apple’s iTunes is keeping them around for a while longer — but has raised the prices for each of the packs to between $35 and $50.

The promo, celebrating the 10th anniversary of Apple selling digital movies, drew participation from Warner Bros., Universal Studios, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Paramount Pictures and Lionsgate. Disney and 20th Century Fox were the major studios that sat out the “10 Years of iTunes Movies” deal.

Still, while they’re not the one-dollar-per-movie bargain iTunes users in the U.S. were able to score Monday, the six bundles are still cheaper than if you were to buy the ten movies separately from Apple. For example, Warner’s $49.99 ten-pack would cost $152.90 for the HD titles if purchased individually.

For now, the 10-movie bundles look to be a limited-time promotion by Apple. That said, iTunes Movies routinely »

“We are proud to be contributing to an important Italian genre-movie director making a big international movie in the U.S. with A-list stars,” said Rai Cinema Managing Director Paolo Del Brocco.
