Jim Carrey thriller 'True Crimes' sets Krakow shoot date

22 October 2015 4:57 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Principal photography on thriller True Crimes, starring Jim Carrey, will begin in Poland’s Krakow on Nov 7.

Speaking to ScreenDaily, the film’s UK screenwriter Jeremy Brock explained that his screenplay was inspired after reading David Grann’s New Yorker article True Crimes - A Post-Modern Murder Mystery, which centres on a Polish murder investigation turning to clues found in a novelist’s book that bear a bizarre resemblance to the case.

Brock, whose screenwriting credits include Mrs Brown, The Last King Of Scotland and Brideshead Revisited, spent a week in Poland in 2008 “just getting my bearings”.

“I spent the intervening time to find my inspiration for what has become an original screenplay,” he recalled, noting that, in his 30 years as a screenwriter from his beginnings as a co-writer of the BBC TV series Casualty in 1985, “I haven’t worked so long and persistently on one project as I have done on this one”.

Robert Rodriguez Directing 'Alita: Battle Angel' for Producer James Cameron

14 October 2015 2:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After more than a decade in development under director James Cameron, the highly-anticipated graphic novel adaptation Alita: Battle Angel is finally moving forward, with Robert Rodriguez coming aboard to direct. We last heard about the project back in 2013, when James Cameron revealed he plans on directing Alita: Battle Angel after his Avatar sequels, but now that he is filming Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 back-to-back, the filmmaker has handed the reins over to Robert Rodriguez. James Cameron is still produce alongside Jon Landau.

Based on the graphic novel series by Yukito Kishiro, Alita: Battle Angel is set in the 26th Century, with the story centering on Alita, an amnesiac female cyborg who is rescued from a junkyard by a doctor. The cyborg is rebuilt, only remembering her martial arts training, as she is programmed to hunt and take down violent criminals, while she goes on her own journey of self-discovery. »

Frank Miller promises a return to Sin City

12 October 2015 9:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

At a panel at New York Comic Con over the weekend, Frank Miller snuck in a little announcement that took us by surprise - he is working on a new Sin City comic.

With the recent revelation that he was returning to Batman for The Dark Knight III: The Master Race, we probably should have seen it coming.

"I'm in the studio drawing every day now," Miller said (via, talking about getting back to comics work.

"Oh yeah," he added. "My next book is set, I'm working on it now, in fact. It's a Sin City, a love story set against the backdrop of World War II."

Miller ostensibly brought his work on the Dark Horse Comics noir series to an end in 2000 with Hell and Back.

Written and illustrated by Miller, Sin City spawned the popular 2005 film - which he directed with Robert Rodriguez - and the »

The Walk movie review: head in the clouds

2 October 2015 6:07 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Puts CGI, IMAX, and 3D (and Joseph Gordon-Levitt) to perfect use. Everything here comes with a vertiginous thrill and a delightful enchantment. I’m “biast” (pro): love Joseph Gordon-Levitt

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The story of Philippe Petit’s daring high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 is not a new one to New Yorkers or to film lovers: it was the subject of 2008’s Oscar-winning best documentary feature, Man on Wire (see it if you haven’t already; it’s currently on Netflix and Amazon Prime in the U.S., though not in Canada or the U.K.). But we haven’t seen that story like this before. Robert Zemeckis has been a cinematic fantasist of the highest order, using magical FX to tell wondrous »

'Ahs: Hotel': Why Lady Gaga Will Leave Fans Cursing in First Episode

30 September 2015 4:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Lady Gaga was in "Machete Kills" and "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," so it's not like "American Horror Story: Hotel" is really her acting debut. But it is her big acting arrival, since she has the lead role -- and it's quite a role. She plays Elizabeth, aka The Countess, the wealthy bisexual doyenne who owns the Hotel Cortez, has a diet of sex and blood (!) and reveals her dark plan right in the first episode.

Speaking of the first episode, that airs next Wednesday, October 7 on FX. Ryan Murphy talked to E! News about the strong reaction fans are going to have to Gaga right away. "She'll give you nightmares," Murphy said. "When you see her you will say 'Holy s-t.'" He later expanded on that same idea, saying, "When you see that first episode when she comes on the screen, you're like, 'Holy s--t.' She has this incredible, »

Lionsgate U.K. at 10: Market-Savvy Distributor Turns Film Angel

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

British movie distributor Lionsgate U.K., which was acquired by its Hollywood parent 10 years ago, has always prided itself on its independent and entrepreneurial spirit, and on its support for Brit filmmakers.

“We are passionate about British movies,” CEO Zygi Kamasa says.

The company had previously been known as Redbus Film Distribution, which was co-founded by Kamasa in 1998. An early success was “Bend It Like Beckham.” Recent investments have included “A Little Chaos” and “Brooklyn.” The company has an eclectic taste, embracing Rosamund Pike/David Tennant comedy “What We Did on Our Holiday” and kids’ animation film “Postman Pat: The Movie.”

Kamasa sees his relationship with producers as collaborative; Lionsgate U.K. contributes notes at script stage and market-tests films heavily during post-production. Paul Webster, who produced “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen,” “Hummingbird” and “Locke” with Lionsgate U.K.’s backing, says: “By being our local U.K. partner and coming in at the inception, »

26 September 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Entourage star Adrien Grenier has found his next project in the form of action thriller Marauders, alongside action legend Bruce Willis.

As he delves further into the investigation, the lawman discovers the trail of secrets that a bank’s owner (Willis) has protected.”

Grenier starred in Entourage for eight seasons, before the film version was released this summer, grossing $44 million worldwide. Willis can next be seen opposite Bill Murray and Kate Hudson in comedy Rock The Kasbah, »

Everest movie review: peak experience

14 September 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A spectacular, heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock. See it in IMAX 3D for an enrapturing you-are-there feeling. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is the kind of movie movies were invented for: big, visceral, and intense, a heart-stopping adventure that has you catching your breath and gasping in shock as it takes you places most of us will never get to so as to engage in the sort of life-threatening thrills that, paradoxically, remind us that we are alive. That’s an argument that safety-minded homebodies like me scoff at when risk-takers make it, but Everest makes you understand it deep in your gut.

And this is true even though Everest is the story of what had been the deadliest climbing season on the mountain until the 2014 and 2015 avalanches. »

Watch Lady Gaga in Haunting New 'American Horror Story' Trailer

10 September 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Lady Gaga's appearance in the trailer for American Horror Story: Hotel is brief, but she is clearly the star of the latest season of Ryan Murphy's campy horror series.

The new clip, titled "Hallways," gives a glimpse at the ghoulish, dangerous residents of the hotel. The show's stars, including Chloe Sevigny, Matt Bomer, Angela Bassett and Sarah Paulson, are seen roaming the corridors amongst numerous Omen-esque children, mattresses with people sewn in them and blenders filled with blood. The 30-second trailer leads up to a ghostly Gaga in a dramatic wedding dress. »

Why All Film Directors Should Be Forced To Make A Film For $7,000

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

This week, Neil Calloway argues that every film director should have to make an ultra low-budget film…

This week brought the news that Robert Rodriguez planned to mark the 25th anniversary of his debut, El Mariachi, by making another film for $7,000.

If you don’t know the story of El Mariachi‘s production, then you really should read Rodriguez’s book Rebel Without a Crew, his diary of the making of the film. To raise the money for the film he checked himself into a research hospital to participate in a study and write the script. There he met Peter Marquardt, who he would cast as the bad guy in the film and would later become a video game producer, before sadly dying last year. Rodriguez begged and borrowed favours and equipment to shoot the film (not having a dolly or track for his camera, he used a wheelchair from »

Barely Lethal movie review: hidden in plain sight

28 August 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Charming and funny, a wonderfully sweet and silly mashup of spy stuff and high-school comedies, like if John Hughes made a James Bond movie. I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for movies about girls and women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Here we go again. After Lila & Eve earlier this summer, here’s another example of a film that, if it were about a guy, would have gotten a big splashy release instead of being shuffled off to the land of VOD. (Arguably, American Ultra is sort of a guy version of this. That opened on 2,778 screens in North America. Barely Lethal opened on 22… after it had been on VOD for a month.) The fact that is stars Hailee Steinfeld, one of the most interesting young actors working today, and in a role that shows off comedy chops I don »

10 Sh*tty Sequels That Could Be Heading Our Way

30 July 2015 1:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

The landscape of cinema today is a vastly different and distinctly less-original one than previous decades. Itʼs hard to put your finger on exactly when the tide began to turn, but it’s safe to admit we live in an age of sequel-mania.

Currently there are a staggering 142 sequels either in-production or development across numerous studios. Some are justified and worthy of warranting second instalments, whilst others will strike you as desperate attempts at squeezing out that last remaining trickle of money from a dying franchise.

Here is a selection of the most sh*tty and unnecessary sequels (possibly given the the protracted production of some) heading our way in the next few years.


10. Sin City 3 Dimension Films

Although nothing is set in stone, reports suggest Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller may team-up once again for a third Sin City movie.

The original was innovative and a blood-splattered shot of adrenaline. »

Why Is Lady Gaga's American Horror Story: Hotel Script a Bloody Mess?!

15 July 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Lady Gaga's American Horror Story: Hotel promotion is on point. Just days after FX released the first teaser promoting the singer's starring role in the drama, Gaga took to Instagram to show off a very important asset…her script. She captioned the shot above with, "Just doing a bit of monster homework. Horrible lipstick accident. #Ahs." Good to know the first episode of the season is currently titled "Checking In." Also, who do you think she's on the phone with? Ahs: Hotel is far from Lady Gaga's first acting role. Prior to achieving musical stardom she appeared on The Sopranos. She's also lent her voice to The Simpsons and appeared in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Machete »

First UK trailer for Sundance hit The Diary of a Teenage Girl

2 July 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release next month, a UK trailer has arrived online for director Marielle Heller’s Sundance hit The Diary of a Teenage Girl. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Like most teenage girls, Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, “the handsomest man in the world,” Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård). What follows is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl stars Brit Bel Powley (Benidorm), Kristen Wiig (Welcome To Me), Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) and Christopher Meloni (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), and is set for release August 7th.

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

What do The Goonies look like now? Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Corey Feldman

7 June 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Goonies celebrates its 30th birthday today, and even after all these years we still adore this '80s classic.

Rumours have been swirling for some time about a Goonies 2 (make it happen, Hollywood!) with all the original cast returning, so with this in mind we take a trip down memory lane to find out what the stars of the cult classic are doing now.

Sean Astin

Sean Astin played the slightly dorky yet bright, braces-clad Mikey - who attempts to leads his fellow adventurers to One-Eyed Willy's hidden fortune upon his discovery of an old treasure map.

The 44-year-old actor has continued to enjoy movie success with his role as Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Astin also played Lynn McGill in hit Fox TV series 24, provides the voice of Raphael in Nickelodeon's TV version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012), and recently appeared in Guillermo del Toro »
