‘San Andreas:’ Mayor Eric Garcetti Hopes Movie Gets L.A. to Prepare

26 May 2015 9:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Among the luminaries at Tuesday’s “San Andreas” premiere was Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, who couldn’t resist the chance to tell residents to get ready for a long-awaited Great Quake, while also touting his recent push for better earthquake preparedness by the city government.

Garcetti made the Hollywood premiere, along with city fire chief Ralph Terrazas, quake expert Lucy Jones of the U.S. Geological Survey and a host of city firemen, who delivered the film’s star, Dwayne Johnson, to the Tcl Chinese Theatre in one of the city’s red fire engines. Johnson plays a firefighter trying to rescue his family and others following the biggest quake in recorded history.

“I hope this movie can be a gut check and a visceral reminder to people of the danger from quakes,” Garcetti said before the screening. “But then that people will also do a head check about »

Anne Meara, Actress And Comedienne, Dead At Age 85

25 May 2015 8:28 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Anne Meara, who along with her husband and partner Jerry Stiller, became a comedy legend, has died at age 85. Meara and Stiller were unlikely candidates for romance in 1950s New York: he was Jewish, she was Catholic. Nevertheless, to the disappointment of both of their families, they married. Like many young couples in show business, they initially struggled to pay the bills. They developed a comedy act that proved to be popular in Gotham night clubs. This eventually caught the eye of Ed Sulllivan, who gave them a coveted slot on his Sunday night variety show. The rest was history. Stiller and Meara became one of the top comedy acts in the country. Their real life marriage lasted 61 years, during which they remained mainstays on the New York social scene. They also continued to perform regularly and even had a popular web-based series. Meara was a familiar face on television and in feature films. »

Weekend Report - 'Tomorrowland' Takes Sleepy Memorial Weekend

24 May 2015 1:17 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Opening in 3,972 locations Tomorrowland took in a lower than expected $40.7M just beating out Pitch Perfect 2 and its projected $37.9M in what proved to be a drowsy four-day Memorial weekend frame. The Brad Bird/George Clooney collaboration ended up the 22nd biggest Memorial opener of all time, sitting somewhat ignominiously behind 2013's Epic ($42.8M) and ahead of 2010's Prince of Persia: Sands of Time ($37.8M). Without a strong tentpole to anchor it the holiday frame looks to be down 19% Yoy. Internationally Tomorrowland opened in 65 territories (56% of the total available) and made $26.7M for a $58.8M worldwide cume. It opened at the #1 spot in Russia and Mexico, and has yet to open in major markets such as Spain, Australia, China, Japan, Korea and Brazil. Still, it's not the greeting that Disney received for its other attraction-based film, Pirates of the Caribbean, whose third film in the series, At World's End, »

Reese Witherspoon to Play Tinker Bell in Live-Action Disney Flick

22 May 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Disney's live-action trend continues with the announcement of its newest take on a classic character: Reese Witherspoon is set to play Tinker Bell in an origin story flick.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the Oscar-winning actress has been tapped to headline "Tink," which will delve into the backstory of the "Peter Pan" character. Though there are no plot details yet, THR says that the movie "will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative." And like 2014 hit "Maleficent," "Tink" aims to tell "'the story you don't know,' and will offer a new perspective on the character," per THR.

Witherspoon certainly has the petite, pixie-ish looks to pull of the character, and she's been splitting her time pretty evenly these days between comedy and drama projects. Depending on which director she takes Tinker Bell, the flick could wind up being some combination of those two genres. »

Roskino, Russian Cinema join forces for Cannes

1 May 2015 6:11 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Roskino and Russian Cinema are joining forces for the first time to present companies in the Russian Pavilion at the forthcoming Marché du Film in Cannes.

In previous years, the two promotional platforms – Russian Cinema financed by the Russian Cinema Fund (Rcf) and Roskino by the Russian Federation’s Ministry of Culture – had operated from separate locations in Cannes.

And at the Berlinale’s European Film Market, Russian Cinema has had a stand in the Martin Gropius Bau, while Roskino was based on the first floor of the Marriott Hotel.

At a press conference in Moscow, Rcf executive director Anton Malyshev spoke about the reasoning behind the decision to organise a united stand and pointed to the “necessity for optimisation of expenditure” and the fact that the available resources were limited this year. Although the financing from the  state had not been formally cut, the weakening of  the Russian rouble vis-a-vis the Us dollar had put the »

‘Taken 3′ Takes Top Spot on Home-Video Sales Charts

30 April 2015 8:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In its first week in stores, 20th Century Fox’s action sequel “Taken 3” shot to the top of the national home video sales charts the week ending April 26, ending a weeks-long dry spell of high-profile new releases.

The film, which earned $89.2 million in theaters, finds Liam Neeson reprising his role as retired CIA operative Bryan Mills, this time clearing his name after being framed for the murder of his wife. Its domestic theatrical take wasn’t nearly as much as that of the first two installments in the franchise, but the film still managed to outsell its nearest competitor, Warner’s “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” by a margin of more than 7 to 1. That’s a function, no doubt, of the fact that “The Hobbit” has been available for more than a month but remains high on the charts because of the conspicuous lack of any »

Meryl Streep, Seth Rogen's 'XMas,' 'Spectre' top Sony Pictures CinemaCon sneak

Las Vegas - It's not an understatement to suggest that since they last presented their wares to the world's theater owners Sony Pictures has had a pretty dramatic 12 months .   December's North Korean hacking scandal made the release of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's "The Interview" a global news story where the studio and exhibitors blamed each other for not screening the film in mainstream theaters.  And, frankly, when Potus gets involved there better be a lot of water under that bridge to put all that behind you.  Five months later Sony has a new Chairman (Tom Rothman) and, luckily, much better films to help heal some delicate wounds. The studio didn't have the star power to rival previous presenters Paramount and Warner Bros, but they did bring a lot of new footage and also made some news. First, let's get to the news. Sony revealed that a new "Jump »

Strong Debut on Disc Chart for ‘Batman Vs. Robin’

22 April 2015 6:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner’s direct-to-video “Batman Vs. Robin” was the best-selling newcomer the week ending April 19, bowing at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan’s Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

But in overall disc sales, the animated “DC Universe Original Movie” was trumped by another Warner title, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” which regained the top spot on Nielsen’s First Alert chart after spending two weeks at No. 2.

“Interstellar,” the Paramount sci-fi epic that occupied the No. 1 spot for the last two weeks, slipped to No. 3 on First Alert.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart: Walt Disney’s “Big Hero 6,” repeating at No. 4, and 20th Century Fox’s “The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death,” a horror sequel that bowed at No. 5.

The original “The Woman in Black” came out in 2012 and driven by favorable reviews as well as Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe in »

13 British comedy stars lured to Hollywood in the 1990s

20 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hollywood went hunting for lots of British comedy talent in the 1990s - and lured the likes of Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson...

For some reason, Hollywood fell in love with British actors again in the 1990s. Sparked by Alan Rickman's turn as Hans Gruber in Die Hard at the back end of the 1980s, many movie villains were either Brits, or in the case of Cliffhanger, John Lithgow taking on the mannerisms of a British antagonist.

Yet in particular, Hollywood went recruiting British comedy talent, with faces then mainly - but not exclusively - known for their small screen work getting roles of various sizes in Hollywood productions. Here are some who racked up the air miles - starting with the man who arguably became one of the most successful...

Hugh Laurie - 101 Dalmatians

Laurie is a man of many talents, who ultimately cracked America with »

Sesame Street movie to be more like The Muppets

14 April 2015 10:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shawn Levy is to direct the Sesame Street movie, which has now jumped to Warner Bros...

Just a few weeks ago, it was revealed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt was to star in a movie of Fraggle Rock, that's being developed by Jim Henson's daughter, Lisa.

It's not the only Henson-related project heading to the big screen either.

There's also the small matter of the Sesame Street film as well, that had been in the works at 20th Century Fox. As it turns out, the movie is still coming, but there's been a change or two.

Firstly, it's switched studios. Sesame Street is now a Warner Bros project, and it's said that it has "brought new ideas to the table regarding the direction of the film". The Tracking Board reports that the new film "will be in the style of the more recent Muppets films" as a result.

“We’re looking forward to working with Scott to make an insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie,” said Grahame-Smith.

Cawthon went on to say, “the story really lends itself to being a movie and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to.”

Nick Jonas wowed the crowd at the 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, held Saturday at the Forum in Inglewood, Calif., which seats 17,500 — screaming kids.

The host pulled double duty, kicking off the live show with a medley performance of his hits “Chains” and “Jealous.” Welcomed by a video montage of A-listers chanting his name — Taylor Swift, Heidi Klum and, of course, SpongeBob SquarePants’ Patrick Star — Jonas took the stage, in front of the star-studded audience, including Chris Pratt, Jamie Foxx and Angelina Jolie, who was joined by two of her kids, Shiloh and Zahara.

“A lot of girls in the house are still struggling after One Direction became two directions,” Jonas greeted the crowd, alluding to this week’s news of the boy band losing member Zayn Malik. Poking fun at himself, he quipped, “What’s next, the Jonas Brother?”

Emma Stone won the first award of the night for favorite movie actress. »

Ben Stiller, Jimmy Fallon Share Sexual Tension During ‘Emotional Interview’ on ‘Tonight Show’ (Video)

20 March 2015 6:26 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Ben Stiller proved that he possesses one of comedy’s quickest wits on Thursday night during a “Tonight Show” “Emotional Interview” with Jimmy Fallon. The duo ran the gamut from “Overly Polite” to “Extreme Sexual Tension,” and Stiller nailed all random producer prompts, which were indicated by a dinging bell and new displayed emotion to portray. That’s not to say that Fallon didn’t hold his own — he certainly did — but this game went to the “Night at the Museum” star. In addition to being the setup man and the punchline, Fallon did what he does best — broke up in genuine laughter. »
