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 | www.flickfilosopher.com | 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 »

Week in Review: Rick Baker announces his retirement

29 May 2015 8:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Special effects legend Rick Baker formally announced his retirement this week. Baker cited a “cheap and fast” philosophy in the movie industry that was at odds with his desire to ensure things got done right as the catalyst for his retirement. Baker’s work stretches across several prominent films, from An American Werewolf in London to Videodrome to The Rocketeer to Ed Wood to Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes and Tropic Thunder. Baker also worked on the Men in Black films and Michael Jackson’s famous “Thriller” music video. The 2014 feature Maleficent will now stand as his last work.

Baker will, however, be auctioning off his famous work via The Prop Store, beginning today.

Jessica Chastain and Amy Schumer are poised to work together on a new comedy. The Tracking Board has reported that Chastain, known mostly for her dramatic work in features such as The Tree of Life and Zero Dark Thirty, »

Robert Rodriguez to Direct Jonny Quest Movie

26 May 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

After making borderline-animated films for the past few years, Robert Rodriguez is taking on a live-action adaptation of an actual cartoon. THR is reporting that the Sin City director is set to adapt Hanna-Barbera’s Jonny Quest for Warner Bros. with Adrian Askarieh (Hitman: Agent 47) and Dan Lin (The Lego Movie) producing. Rodriguez will write the script alongside Terry Rossio, who penned the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films and The Lone Ranger with writing partner Ted Elliott, but who's been going out on his own as of late. Rodriguez and Elliott will be working from a previous draft written by Dan Mazeu. For those who are unfamiliar with the Johnny Quest series, Wikipedia says the cartoon was in the vein of “Doc Savage, Tom Swift, and John Carter of Mars.” The eponymous character was a young boy who went on adventures with his father Dr. Benton Quest, »

Daredevil concept art shows Matt Murdock’s red costume

20 May 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel has given us a glimpse at some concept artwork from Ryan Meinerding for Matt Murdock’s iconic red suit in the Netflix series Daredevil, which looks pretty close indeed to the costume that made it on screen in the season finale…

“The tone that was really communicated was the sense of realism that they were going for,” Meinerding tells Marvel.com. “I think the way that [manifested itself in] the costume was through the armor and making it feel a little bit more padded than you traditionally think of Daredevil being. When we do these designs, there’s a concept of grounded and a concept of reality. The grounded nature that they brought to the vigilante costume was the simplicity and effectiveness, because you’re trying to conceal your identity but also [have to be] mobile enough to fight. When you do a super hero costume in that world, it’s hard to be as »

Rosario Dawson Signs Deal With Marvel And Netflix To Star In Daredevil Season Two And More

8 May 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Marvel and Netflix have announced today that Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Trance) will reprise her role as Claire Temple in the second season of Daredevil, coming in 2016, as part of a larger exclusive TV deal that will also allow her to appear in any of Marvel’s other Netflix original series. Romantically entangled with The Man Without Fear Matt Murdock in the series’ first season, Claire helped the hero after more than a few of his brutal battles in the streets of Hell’s Kitchen.   As you may already know, Claire Templeis a character with ties to many of the Defenders heroes in the comics, and was a love interest for Luke Cage, so this deal makes sense. "After working with Rosario in the first season, we knew instantly that we had to have her back for our second," said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel »
