This is Where I Leave You | Review

17 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

This is Where I Judge You: In the Great Well of Family Drama, Levy Is Dry

Based on the acclaimed novel by Jonathan Tropper, who adapts his own screenplay, This Is Where I Leave You hardly lives up to the Sirkian soap as its delightfully sappy title would lead you to predict. Tropper, with the aid of mainstream heavy Shawn Levy (who sports a resume that includes those Night at the Museum films and Real Steel), has managed to give us a film that feels like the Grand Hotel of family reunion dramas. A nest of WASPs wades around under the disguise of their mixed Jewish ancestry to gimmicky effect in a drama about a large number of otherwise privileged people chronically unhappy with their inability to transcend their conditioning and seek fulfillment from a fabricated, pedestrian lifestyle. Levy and Tropper aim for middle ground with a portrait of familial »

‘This Is Where I Leave You’s’ Shawn Levy Proud to Get ‘Career Defining Performance’ from Jason Bateman

16 September 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Monday night’s steamy weather stirred plenty of emotions at the L.A. premiere of Warner Bros.This Is Where I Leave You” at the Tcl Chinese.

Director Shawn Levy mused at the afterparty that he had taken the gig as a break from his usual broad comedies such as the “Night at the Museum” franchise. He said he was proud to get Jason Bateman to shed tears in what Levy called a “career defining” performance.

'I really wanted to take the pressure off Jason to cry in the movie so I told him he didn't have to' – Shawn Levy pic.twitter.com/33BbANiSqZ

— Dave McNary (@Variety_DMcNary) September 16, 2014

“‘I’ve never seen Jason Bateman full-on cry,” he added.  “Any time he had scenes with Jane Fonda, it pushed those buttons.”

Corey Stoll, who portrays Bateman’s older brother, said actors wound up falling into sibling patterns during the five-week shoot. »

Arab World’s Relentless Crises Boost Citizen Journalism & Freedom Of Expression As TV Ratings & Film Box Office Rise

14 September 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In a region where the media biz is often more noted for being polarized, the atrocious actions that have brought Isis global attention have unified the vast majority of decent moral Arabs across sectarian and political divides against the exceptionally brutal terror group.

President Obama and dozens of countries are rushing an emergency plan to eradicate Isis on the ground, and the world is getting to know this organization because of the horrific beheadings of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and last night’s atrocity against married British aid worker and father of two David Cawthorne Haines. The Arab world, however, was already all too aware of the group’s murderous tactics, as thousands of Arab civilians have been killed in recent months in Syria and Iraq.

Isis has created an unprecedented amount of upheaval that has manifested itself in different ways. Journalists who cover the region have »

Toronto: ‘Theory Of Everything’ Sends Oscar Race Into Early Overdrive As TIFF World Premieres Keep On Coming

8 September 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In terms of Oscar watching, the most anticipated World Premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival debuted Sunday night and it did not disappoint. Focus Features, as expected, has a major contender in The Theory Of Everything, its Stephen Hawking biopic that turns out to be a touching and unusual love story between the young Hawking and his wife Jane. The film is based on her memoir, and Anthony McCarten’s adaptation and first-rate direction by Oscar winner James Marsh (Man On Wire) get it all right. Stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones will both be heading to the Oscars in the lead actor and actress categories, and if the buzz at the Patria afterparty is any indication, they could be going there with front-runner status (although the season is just getting rolling). To say the response here was rapturous would not be understating the enthusiasm I heard »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Toronto Film Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

7 September 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sitting shiva makes the heart grow fonder (and the libido rage and the repressed grievances runneth over) in “This Is Where I Leave You,”. Repping a concerted effort by “Night at the Museum” and “Cheaper By the Dozen” helmer Shawn Levy to spread his wings beyond the gilded cage of family-friendly tentpoles, this alternately manic and mawkish adaptation of Jonathan Tropper’s 2009 novel aims for “Kramer Vs. Kramer” and “Terms of Endearment” territory and ends up somewhere closer to a Semitic “Home For the Holidays” or “August: Osage County.” But a tremendous ensemble cast gives the pic a significant boost, especially when they’re allowed to act rather than merely act out. Opening wide Sept. 19 following its Toronto Film Festival bow, “This” occupies an increasingly rare space on a major studio’s release slate: a literary adaptation that’s neither tween-centric nor awards bait, but which could generate some modest »

'Real Steel 2' Secretly Being Planned; Hugh Jackman Will Return

7 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his new film This Is Where I Leave You, director Shawn Levy revealed that he has secretly been developing a sequel to his 2011 hit Real Steel for the past 3 and a half years.

The filmmaker revealed that Hugh Jackman is ready to reprise his role as Charlie Kenton, but they will only make a follow-up if they can find a fresh story.

"We have been quietly developing a sequel to Real Steel for three and a half years. We've come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I would only make it if the plot feels fresh, but also the character journeys feel fresh, and we've found both but never at the same time. It's ongoing. I know the clock is ticking. That movie, weirdly, for a movie that did very well globally--it did okay domestically--but the love for Real Steel remains kind of unique »

Fall Movie Preview 2014: Bring on the Heavy Hitters

3 September 2014 11:22 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Face it, summer movies are like one-night stands: in, out and off our memory cards. Fall brings the movies you want to take home, learn to love and introduce to friends. They stick to the mind and heart, especially the ones ready for a serious date with Oscar. It's not that art totally trumps commerce at the multiplex between Labor Day and New Year's Eve: Escapism is plentiful, from sequels for Horrible Bosses and Night at the Museum to the musicals Annie and Into the Woods. But so far, »

Toronto: Shawn Levy on His Jason Bateman-Tina Fey Dramedy, Entering R-Rated Territory and Robin Williams' Death

3 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

"I don't make festival-type movies," Shawn Levy freely admits. The 46-year-old producer/director, who lives in Brentwood with his wife, Serena, and their four daughters, ranging in age from 3 to 15, is most closely associated with such family comedies as 2003's Cheaper by the Dozen and effects-driven fantasy films such as the hit Night at the Museum franchise. "And I made a vow early on that I would only attend a film festival if I had a reason to be there," he says. Finally, though, that reason has come along for the Montreal-born

Robin Williams's Widow Is 'Surprisingly Resilient,' Says Friend

Well-loved and well-ridden, the bicycle still had mud clinging to the tires. From the handlebars hung a red Night at the Museum cap, signed by its owner. At Saturday night's Hotbed Benefit for 10,000 Degrees, a scholarship program for underprivileged college students, Robin Williams's presence was felt everywhere - but especially around the custom-made Pegoretti bicycle donated by the late entertainer for the fundraiser. "I can see him showing off the bicycle he donated to the auction, getting everyone laughing and raising a lot of money for a cause he cared about deeply," Maxwell Drever, a close friend of Williams's and co-host of the evening, »

The 10 Best Improvised Scenes in Film

21 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Even though scripts play an incredibly important part of the movie making process, sometimes a little improvisation is just what a movie scene needs to take it from good to great. CineFix has put together a fantastic video that highlights the 10 greatest improvised scenes in film history. I think they did a great job putting this together, and I can't think of anything that I would add to it. Check it out! I've included the list of films mentioned in the video below.

Bridesmaids (2011)

A lot of this movie was the talented comedic actresses in the cast going off book, but Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone’s “Air Marshall” exchange takes the cake.

Apocalypse Now (1979)

Marlon Brando’s performance as Col Kurtz was largely made up on the spot. And while we don’t endorse actors not learning their lines, we can’t fault what came of it in this instance… »

Fox’s Jim Gianopulos Leads Studio Through Uncertain Times

19 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos doesn’t have an easy job.

It’s hard enough to pick movies that connect with audiences. Today, studio chiefs like Gianopulos must navigate a rapidly shifting landscape where consumer demands, piracy and the collapse of the DVD market, as well as increasing competition from online diversions and quality cable TV shows, are wreaking havoc on the financial underpinnings of the film business. Media companies like Fox’s parent 21st Century Fox are on a quest to grow bigger in order to compete with digital superpowers like Google and pending mergers between cable and telco giants like Comcast and Time Warner Cable, and At&T and DirecTV. Gianopulos’ uberboss, 21st Century Fox chief Rupert Murdoch, made a surprise $80 billion bid to buy Time Warner that was rejected and he subsequently withdrew. But consolidation, it seems, is coming.

Week in Review: Aftermath of Robin Williams’ passing

15 August 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Although the events in Ferguson, Missouri have created a social media firestorm over the last week, much of the media cycle was dominated by the death of Robin Williams on Monday. Tributes have been pouring in, including this one and this one from Sound on Sight, and there has been some absolutely beautiful writing to go along with it.

It was first revealed that Williams died in a suicide after battling severe depression. Even more tragic news came when Williams’ wife, Susan Schneider, said he was just recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

“Robin’s sobriety was intact and he was brave as he struggled with his own battles of depression, anxiety as well as early stages of Parkinson’s Disease, which he was not yet ready to share publicly,” she said in a statement.

But when someone iconic as Williams passes away, that’s never the end of the story, »

Martha Thomases: Comic Without Book

15 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Last year, I noticed an ad for Apple. I mean, you can’t not notice them, since they air every few minutes. This one was special, though, quoting someone quoting Walt Whitman. I wondered if it was made by the same agency that made the Patti Smith Levi’s commercial. And I wondered why the unseen narrator sounded so familiar.

It was Robin Williams, from The Dead Poets Society.

As I’m sure you know, Robin Williams died Monday. God, I’m going to miss him

Now is the time when I would like to tell you what good friends we were, but that would be a lie. Instead, I have only loved him since the first times I saw him do his stand-up on television shows. I was lucky enough to see him perform, twice.

The first time, back when John and I were publishing Comedy Magazine (and why »

Fox’s Emma Watts Re-Ups For Three Years After Robust Summer

14 August 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

As Stacey Snider gets closer to leaving DreamWorks to take a senior position under 20th Century Fox Film chairman/CEO Jim Gianopulos, questions have been rampant about the role for Tcf production president Emma Watts, who led the studio to its most killer summer in a long time. Gianopulos has answered some of those questions by staking Watts to a new three year deal.

“Emma is a proven and extremely talented production executive who has consistently led her division to great success, most recently through her stellar contributions to our remarkable summer slate,” Gianopulos said. “We look forward to her continuing contributions to our creative achievements in the years ahead.”

Last month, Fox became the first studio to pass $1 billion in domestic box office – and $3 billion worldwide – fueled by The Other Woman, the $730 million global grosser X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, the »

First clip from the late Robin Williams' upcoming Merry Friggin' Christmas

It is a sad fact that Robin Williams' last few years worth of work has been relegated to On Demand or straight to cable. Films like The Angriest Man In Brooklyn and World's Greatest Dad did not get the exposure the acclaimed Oscar winner had received in years past. Most of his big screen work was in supporting roles like Night At The Museum. With four films completed before his death, Williams will be seen again but how widely is unknown. The first of the four films to see release will be »
