Michael Bay Reflects on His Career as He Receives Hands and Feet Honor

23 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On May 23, Michael Bay will have his hands and feet encased in cement outside the iconic Tcl Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, alongside classic stars from Marilyn Monroe to Meryl Streep.  While Bay is thrilled, he does have one hesitation. “I just remember as a kid, going to see the handprints and I always thought the people who got this honor were so much older,” he says with a laugh.”

For the record, Bay is a youthful 52, but it’s a credit to his career that his accomplishments over the past 20 years have put him in the ranks of his mentors Steven Spielberg and super producer Jerry Bruckheimer, both of whose imprints are also in the Chinese forecourt. And it’s full circle for Bay, a native Angeleno who  discovered he wanted to be a director at that very theater.

At age 15, Bay was working at Lucasfilm, filing storyboards for “Raiders of the Lost Ark. »

Mike Patton to Score the Soundtrack for Netflix's Stephen King Movie 1922

5 May 2017 3:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Musical chameleon Mike Patton has announced that he's working on a score for the Netflix adaptation of the Stephen King novella 1922. In November of last year, it was announced that Netflix would be making a movie based on King's short story. Zak Hilditch will direct the movie based off of the screenplay that he wrote. The story is told through the narration of the main character who confesses to murdering his wife and later believes that she is haunting him. Not much else has been revealed about the movie, but we have learned that Mike Patton has already composed the score.

Mike Patton, who is probably best known as the lead singer of the experimental rock band Faith No More, recently spoke to Rolling Stone about his new black metal project Dead Cross with ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. At the end of the article, Patton casually mentions that he has »

The Dark Tower Trailer Is A Mixed Bag For Stephen King Fans

3 May 2017 9:46 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower series has long been a work that attracted seriously devoted fans. That means a lot of people are happy to know that a movie adaptation is coming, but it also makes for a lot of room for disappointment. Of course, it also means that every choice in the production is likely to have some group threatening to start a riot.  Far more than your average adaptation, working through the normal production headaches of something with a die-hard fanbase is likely to stir up both love and hate. Every casting choice is going to start a debate, and every image or video clip released is as likely to cause a panic as it is to raise interest in the film.

As if this weren’t bad enough simply because the book series has so many fans, the books also seem particularly difficult to film. The »

Homeland season 6 finale review: America First

6.12 America First

Carrie stands there, alone on an already very bleak and chilly winter day. Across the National Mall stands Capitol Hill, a building constructed to evoke both Classical and Enlightenment era ideals of democracy, fairness, and open governance. Perhaps it’s the greyness of the dawn, or the fact that it feels like those principles have become meaningless bumper sticker platitudes in an infinitely more complex national situation, but either way the sensation conveyed is one of abject loss.

It’s a provocative image to end Homeland season six on. »

The Best Disaster Movies

27 March 2017 6:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It is no secret that cinema-goers are enthralled by the prospect of the world ending. Days and weeks may pass without news of a global threat in reality; however you can now bet on what impending danger will bring about the planet’s destruction. We all love it, perhaps more than we should, but the exhilaration is unmatched so here’s a run down of the greatest disaster films (in our opinion!) of all time.

Deep Impact

When two films with very similar plot lines hit the Box Office at the same time; the crowd tends to side with one or the other and we are firmly on the side of Deep Impact over Armageddon.

The latter was never an issue really; if they’d just taught the astronauts to drill over the time they had then the world was never in danger – Deep Impact provided a very scientific take »

Falling DVD & Blu-ray sales, and an era passing

21 March 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Mar 23, 2017

As DVD and Blu-ray sales fall, it's no longer certain that films will get a disc release. So what's happening?

Let’s start with a statistic.

In 2013, Hotel Transylvania shifted 1,029,614 copies on Blu-ray disc in the Us alone. A hefty number, yet the animated hit – which has thus far spawned one sequel, with another on the way – was only the 23rd best-selling Blu-ray release of the year in America that year, just trailing titles such as Turbo, Rise Of The Guardians, Django Unchained and Life Of Pi.

2013 was arguably the peak year for Blu-ray sales, with 23 individual titles selling a million copies or more in the Us. The best-selling of all, Despicable Me 2, shifted 4.6m copies alone, and many more overseas. On the DVD format, meanwhile, 45 different films sold a million units in America in 2013, including another 2.7m copies of Hotel Transylvania.

In recent years, however, »

Megan Leavey Trailer: Kate Mara Forms An Unbreakable Bond With Her K9 Military Dog

15 March 2017 7:47 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The human-canine bond is a special one. For many, dogs are considered a loyal companion and friend, one that remains by your side for the duration of their natural-born lives. It’s a cross-species relationship that has been explored on the silver screen ten times over, often resulting in tear-jerking moments of drama in the likes of Marley & Me and, to a lesser extent, Will Smith’s apocalyptic vehicle I Am Legend.

One filmmaker that is ready to cast light on that human-canine bond is Gabriela Cowperthwaite (Blackfish), who’s at the helm of true-life drama Megan Leavey. Pegged for a release in June, the wartime pic places Kate Mara (House of Cards, Fantastic Four) in the boots of the titular marine corporal, who’s assigned to the military’s K9 unit. While there, Mara’s lead becomes drawn to Rex, an overly aggressive German Shepherd able to sniff out an Ied with remarkable accuracy. »

Spend Five Minutes In Dunkirk On Your Way To Skull Island

10 March 2017 12:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Christopher Nolan is an idiosyncratic director in many ways, from his Byzantine plotting to his rigorous combination of practical and digital effects. One thing he does that he’s not particularly heralded for though is his tendency to release exclusive clips of his films in front of selected IMAX showings.

The trend began with the opening bank robbery sequence in The Dark Knight appearing before I Am Legend, and continued with the plane heist in The Dark Knight Rises being played in in full before Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. He’s now carrying on this tradition with Dunkirk, releasing a five-minute prologue which initially showed in front of IMAX screenings of Rogue One.

If you missed that, you’ve now got another chance to catch it, as Warner Bros. are putting it front of IMAX screenings of Kong: Skull Island. Reports from back in December explain that the footage establishes »

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

22 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop.  Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »

Forbidden Tomes: 6 Deliciously Dark Reads for Valentine’s Day

14 February 2017 10:43 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The greatest of all Hallmark holidays, the day of St. Valentine is constructed to make couples feel obligated to go out on expensive and over-anticipated dates, while unnecessarily reminding single people of their status. Candy hearts and roses are meant to celebrate monogamy and “normal” love; but the origins of the holiday go back to Roman culture and involved whips, wolf skins and fertility orgies. Sound more your speed? Then these decidedly non-romantic books may be the right tonic for this holiday:

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley: Mary Shelley’s still shocking novel is an affront to many things: religion, ego, scientific progress, but also love. The titular doctor creates a creature that he abandons out of disgust, only to have his creation haunt his every step and destroy all the people he loves. Talk about a bad ex. The book is a tragic exploration of freakishness and abandonment, an »

‘Diary of the Dead’ and George A. Romero’s Formal Self-Awareness

14 February 2017 9:58 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

For spanning half a century and six films to date, George A. Romero’s Dead series could reasonably be labeled the most ambitious single-auteur franchise in horror. Beginning with Night of the Living Dead’s release in »

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

6 February 2017 3:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »

Vampire Thriller The Passage Lands Pilot Order At Fox, Ridley Scott Attached

27 January 2017 7:20 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a long time coming, but Justin Cronin’s bestselling horror trilogy The Passage is finally poised to spring off the page.

Emerging from a prolonged and difficult spell in film development – Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) was initially attached to develop the movie adaptation – Cronin’s vampire thriller has been repackaged for television, and we now have confirmation that Fox has ordered a pilot for the show. Variety has the scoop, confirming that Ridley Scott remains on board to executive produce the one-hour drama. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Heldens will handle script duties, and could potentially be elected showrunner should The Passage go on to earn a full-season order.

That’s all hypothetical for now, but we understand Matt Reeves is set to helm the pilot episode, having been attached to The Passage for six years and change. Evoking comparisons to I Am Legend – the film, »

‘Broad City’ Hack Into Inauguration Day: It’s Going To Get ‘I Am Legend’ Up In Here

20 January 2017 10:59 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Like it or not, you should probably get ready for four years of dissent. And yes, a lot of it is going to come from the entertainment industry in the form of jokes and jabs at President YouKnowHisNameNotGonnaSayItAloud. But some people are just damn angry and using that energy to create some laughs. We’re not sure if you’re following the Twitter accounts of the “Broad City” girls, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, but they’re hopping mad today (well, ok, at least Glazer is).

Here at Et, we love an anniversary -- whether it’s the 20th anniversary of Scream or Clueless, 10 years in the life of The Hills or the magical time making No Doubt’s Magic Kingdom 20 years later. And as we settle in 2017, it’s time to look ahead at all those upcoming moments that will have you saying, “I remember when…”

Here’s a brief look at our favorite TV and film milestones of 2017:

Jan. 25, 2002: A Walk to Remember (15 Years)

While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.

Let’s not also forget that 2002 gave us Naomie Harris in 28 Days Later, Barbershop, Ryan Gosling in Murder by Numbers, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, [link »
