Elisabeth Moss Rocks The Bleeder

18 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Murtada

A clip should give us a small taste that makes us want to see the movie it’s from. Unlike trailers, clips can’t be manipulated with mood and music, which is why sometimes they are jarring and don’t work out of context. But not this clip.

This clip from The Bleeder has it all. It’s like a short film with a complete story. Even if you knew nothing about the movie, you’d still get a full portrait of two of its character. One is a philandering husband (Liev Schreiber), the other is his wife (Elisabeth Moss) catching him in flirting with another woman in a diner. We know the setting because of the spot on accent from Moss. And watching Moss talk we understand a lot about this marriage.

The Bleeder is a biopic of boxer Chuck Wepner who is the real life  inspiration »

17 times movies and TV shows were refused rights to songs

30 June 2016 9:23 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 1, 2016

Not every artist is happy to have their song featured in a particular TV show or film. Here are 17 times the rights were refused...

It's not only political campaigns that inspire musical artists to exercise the power of veto on the use of their songs. For reasons of finance, reputation, ego, taste and more, the following TV shows and films weren't able to secure the use of the recordings they originally sought...

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

Sinatra would never let Marty use his music,” explains Schoonmaker, “which is too bad because Marty may »

Do sequels ever really work when decades have passed since the first film?

27 June 2016 3:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I still haven’t seen Independence Day: Resurgence, and there’s a good chance I won’t. When 20th Century Fox made the decision not to screen the film for Us press in advance of the film’s opening, they sent a very clear message to anyone paying attention, and it’s a message that I believe more and more studios would love to send to critics, especially on their giant event films: not only do we not need you, but we don’t want you. At all. And it’s true. Studios don’t really need to screen movies for critics. It’s a professional agreement that we all participate in, but more and more often, studios screen later and almost begrudgingly. I am amazed how many times this year alone I’ve had to basically beg to even find out when or if a screening is happening. The »

Jim Mickle to Team with Sylvester Stallone for Untitled Thriller

14 June 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Ever since he spearheaded his own comeback in 2006 with Rocky Balboa, Sylvester Stallone’s career has continued to have its ups and downs. I think we can all agree that he seems to fare better when he is directing or at least writing the material himself, although Ryan Coogler’s recent Rocky spin-off Creed was a […] »

Sylvester Stallone adds new action thriller to upcoming slate

13 June 2016 11:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sylvester Stallone action movie on the cards: The untitled film will be directed by Jim Mickie.

The new Sylvester Stallone action movie will see him avenge his son’s death.

A new Sylvester Stallone action movie is on the cards

Sylvester Stallone has chosen his first film since his Oscar-nominated turn in last year’s Creed. The action star will head to an untitled movie over at Stx Entertainment which is being directed by Jim Mickie, the talented filmmaker who brought us Cold In July last year.

Deadline got the scoop on the new headlining project, which will see Stallone play an aging ex-con with more regrets than memories. Upon hearing about his son’s death his solitude is quickly broken as he must now protect the only family he has left and avenge a son he hardly knew. The film has previously been titled Godforsaken, which was written by Daniel Casey.

We don’t know too much about the planned film other than that, but we’ll bring you more news on the new Sylvester Stallone action movie as we get it.

Stallone will next be seen in next summer’s Marvel movie Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and will also reprise his iconic role of Rocky Balboa in a sequel to Creed, which is expected to start shooting in 2017. He also has the film Scarpa on the cards, a film which is biopic of Gregory Scarpa, a former capo and enforcer for the Colombo crime family, which will be directed by Brad Furman, and also the animated comedy Animal Crackers, to which he will lend his voice. He also has a new Expendables on the cards, though there hasn’t been a great deal of news on that front for a little.

We’re loving the Stallone renaissance though – long may it continue.

Watch Muhammad Ali and Sylvester Stallone Present at the 1977 Oscars

4 June 2016 8:38 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Three-time world heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali surprised Sylvester Stallone onstage at the 1977 Oscars, the same year the actor was nominated for his leading role in Rocky. As Stallone, who played boxing legend Rocky Balboa in the 1976 Oscar-nominated film, introduced himself to audiences, Ali crept behind him on the stage to the chuckle of onlooking attendees. "You stole my script. I'm the Apollo Creed," Ali quipped of Stallone's starring role in the boxing pic. "I saw it. I watched the movie. You stole my script. All that was me, I'm the Apollo Creed!" { "nid": 899555,

DVD Review: Creed

16 May 2016 12:36 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ When Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) first stepped into the ring, onto the screen, and into the hearts and minds of cinema audiences back in 1976's Rocky, few would have predicted him making it to the seventh round. Even fewer would imagine that he'd still be holding his own (a couple of face-plants onto the canvas aside). But here we stand, almost forty years after its debut, and Ryan Coogler brings the Rocky franchise strutting back through the ropes with renewed vigour with Creed. It's a film that both homages and reboots the original instalment, moving forward with wit, charisma and a energy.

Creed; The Danish Girl; When Animals Dream; Mojave; The Chosen Ones – review

14 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rocky is successfully reborn as a young fighter’s mentor in Ryan Coogler’s weighty Creed; The Danish Girl is as much about changing frocks as identity

It’s 40 years since Rocky scrapped its way into cinemas – I’d have added “believe it or not”, but when you see Sylvester Stallone’s swollen, fallen, stray pug face in Creed (Warner, 12), you definitely believe it. Still, how many film franchises have lurched along with the same actor for that long? And how many of those can claim to have peaked in their fifth decade? Fine wine analogies don’t apply here: the Rocky films have been corked since the 1980s. But Ryan Coogler’s film – not so much an extension of a franchise as a fresh graft of its mythos – is a very robust red: it’s a boxing film alive with bodily tension, social concern and, by its roaring climax, »

Michael B. Jordan Joins 'Black Panther' As Potential Villian, Reuniting With 'Creed' Director Ryan Coogler

13 May 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Today is a good day for Marvel fans and "Rocky" fans alike. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael B. Jordan has joined the cast of Marvel's upcoming superhero film "Black Panther." It's currently unclear who Jordan would play, but sources say it's possible that he might play a villain in the new film. Additionally, Jordan will be re-teaming with director Ryan Coogler, who previously directed him in "Fruitvale Station," a biographical drama about the death of Oscar Grant, and "Creed," the latest in the "Rocky" franchise about Apollo Creed's son Adonis who trains with former heavyweight champion Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) to pursue his dream of becoming a professional boxer.

Celebrate Rocky's 40th anniversary with a special return engagement

6 May 2016 7:32 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

While we appreciated the poignant turn 69-year-old Sylvester Stallone gave as aged Rocky Balboa in last year’sCreed, let’s turn back the clock 40 years and marvel at his original performance in 1976’s Rocky. Here was an unknown, droopy-eyed actor who refused to sell the script he wrote in three days — and with only $106 to his name, and a pregnant wife at home — unless he could play the muscle-bound boxer.

Producers Irwin Winkler and Robert Chartoff agreed and Stallone didn’t disappoint, giving a magnificent performance as the hard-luck pugilist who wants nothing but the chance to go the distance with reigning heavyweight champ Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) and win the heart of shy pet-store keeper Adrian (Talia Shire).

Rocky earned 10 Oscar nominations, including one for Stallone as Best Actor, and took home the Best Picture award. Atta boy Rocky!  »

Sylvester Stallone’s movie methods of communication

Who needs dialogue? Sylvester Stallone has a rare skill in conveying meaning via a series of rather unusual noises...

Most actors need a fancy script to help them get their character’s message across – the written word an important tool in their performer’s kit. A lot of run-of-the-mill ‘talky’ actors just stick with that; your Robert De Niros, your Leonardo Dicaprios – not 2016 Best Supporting Actor Oscar (should have won) nominee Sylvester Stallone. He can communicate a character’s inner anguish or joy in a myriad of quick and effective noises: he doesn’t need anything as mundane as words. Don’t believe us?

Rambo III, 81 minutes in – what’s tougher than Ptsd?

The stakes were high in the original Rambo film, First Blood. So high that every outing for the bandana’ed Vietnam veteran since has had to up the violence to more and more preposterously »

Back in October of last year it was reported that Nu Image and Millennium had made pre-sale distribution deals in China for the fourth instalment of The Expendables franchise, and now Randy Couture has confirmed to The Arnold Fans that filming on The Expendables 4 will get underway in the fall.

As yet, there’s been no official word on casting for the latest chapter of the action franchise, although there has been speculation that Sylvester Stallone could sit out the next instalment following his Oscar-nominated turn as Rocky Balboa in Creed. Meanwhile, Hulk Hogan has also claimed that Stallone wants him for the villain role in The Expendables 4, although as with anything that Hogan says, that should probably be taken with a pinch of salt. »

Sylvester Stallone In Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Here's What We Know

5 March 2016 8:57 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sylvester Stallone may not have been so lucky at this year’s Academy Awards, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t stopped looking to the future. Rocky Balboa got snubbed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the actor has now set his sights on his next big action role. As it turns out, Stallone’s next project will apparently take the action away from Earth alongside the universe’s biggest misfits: the Guardians of the Galaxy.   According to a new report from NY Daily News, Sylvester Stallone was spotted leaving a hotel in Atlanta - the same hotel where the entire cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been staying during the film’s production. The photos taken of him show him holding a script as he rushes off to set. While this doesn’t necessarily »

Irwin Winkler Says 'Creed' Sequel in the Works, Slams Warner Bros. Over 'Goodfellas' Accounting

2 March 2016 11:35 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The first steps toward making a sequel to Creed — the seventh film in the Rocky Balboa franchise — are imminent, says Irwin Winkler. The producer, who won a best-picture Oscar for the original Rocky (shared with then-partner Robert Chartoff) expects to start talking about the Creed follow-up this month. “Next couple of weeks, we’ll start,” he said on February 29. “But basically it’s about Creed [rather than Rocky]. We think that there is really a story to examine the life of Adonis Creed, and we’re going ahead with it.” He did not say whether

Watch Tracy Morgan as Clubber Lang's Son in 'Creed 2' Spoof

2 March 2016 10:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Creed was one of a select few movies last year that hit the sweet spot of both critical and commercial success. The hit spinoff of the beloved Rocky franchise scored a whopping 94% "Fresh" rating with the critics on Rotten Tomatoes, and it took in $173.2 million worldwide, from just a $35 million budget. During Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s Oscars special last weekend, the late-night talk show host teamed up with Tracy Morgan and a slew of other stars to present the Creed parody "Clubber."

Anyone familiar with the Rocky franchise will surely remember the name Clubber, as in Clubber Lang, the ferocious fighter played by Mr. T in Rocky III. This spoof toys with the Creed concept, but instead of Apollo Creed's son coming to "Rocky" (Jimmy Kimmel), it's Clubber Lang Jr. (Tracy Morgan), who wants Rocky to train him. The spoof features a number of memorable cameos as well, including J.K. Simmons, »

Sylvester Stallone Has The Perfect Response To His Oscar Snub, See It Now

1 March 2016 10:51 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the biggest fallouts from Sunday’s Oscars ceremony was the Academy’s decision to overlook Sylvester Stallone’s performance in Creed and give the Best Supporting Actor accolade to Mark Rylance for Bridge Of Spies. This immediately led to some outcry from huge Sylvester Stallone fans. But now, Rocky Balboa himself has taken to Instagram to try and quash the dismay over his lack of recognition. And he did so with arguably the most Sylvester Stallone post of all time.      To all the "real Rocky's" of the world, Please hang on to your dreams, Never Give In , Never Give Out , Never Give Up! thanks for the support. A photo posted by Sly Stallone (@officialslystallone) on Feb 29, 2016 at 10:59am Pst There’s so much to love about this Instagram post that I’m not sure where to begin. »
