The Fabric of Film: Tough Guy Wear

16 April 2015 2:06 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

In honour of The Times’ film critic Kevin Maher’s list of iconic movie rebels, we take a look at what it truly takes to make a tough guy in cinema.

What constitutes a tough guy, as in ‘man’, on film is usually a traditional interpretation of masculinity. There is always room for the sensitive hero in a sweater and slacks, but for those who watch movies as ingrained wish fulfilment, the sexy and sweaty man’s man needs suitable attire to reflect his personality. But it is not just about the garments themselves. A jacket is a jacket, but a leather jacket is a symbol. A wax jacket on the other hand is enlightened – the reformist hero.

Waxed cotton is fantastic stuff. Essentially it is a treated fabric, albeit one that needs regular re-covering to ensure longevity. The result is a lightweight, versatile material that, although not especially warm, »

Sony and Mrc Teaming to Bring Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' to Theaters and TV

10 April 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Like the Loch Ness Monster, a movie adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower is something we've heard great tales about but have never seen. That could be changing soon though, as Deadline reports Sony and Mrc have partnered to co-finance and distribute a film series based on the novels, with Mrc developing a complementary TV series to run alongside the films. Back in 2012, Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend) was preparing a new draft of the first installment in the proposed series for Warner Bros., and had things worked out, a complementary TV series would have been set up at HBO. However, Warners, like Universal before it, passed on the project, though it seems to have found new life at rival studio Sony. This latest draft of the first film's script is co-written by Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) and is based on Goldsman's earlier draft. »

Lionsgate Developing ‘The Odyssey’ with ‘Hunger Games’ Team

8 April 2015 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate is developing a movie version of Homer’s “The Odyssey” with “Hunger Games” director Francis Lawrence and producer Nina Jacobson attached.

Lawrence took over directing duties on Lionsgate’s “Hunger Games” franchise (including the upcoming “Mockingjay — Part 2″) after Gary Ross exited following the first film, and Jacobson has produced all four films through her Color Force producing banner.

Peter Craig, who co-wrote the two “Mockingjay” films, is penning the script for “The Odyssey.”

The Odyssey” is believed to have been composed by Homer in the 8th century B.C. It centers on Odysseus and his journey home after the fall of Troy while his wife Penelope fights off suitors.

Lawrence’s directing credits include “Water for Elephants,” “I Am Legend” and “Constantine.” Jacobson produced the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” movies.

Motion Picture Group co-president Erik Feig is overseeing “The Odyssey” with Jim Miller and James Myers. Lawrence is represented by CAA and 3 Arts. »

Movie News: Hugh Jackman's Final 'Wolverine' Movie; More 'Tranformers' Sequels and Spinoffs Are Coming

30 March 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Wolverine: Hugh Jackman has hinted before that he's ready to say goodbye to playing the X-Men character Wolverine, and now he's given his clearest signal yet. In a social media post, he featured a photo with the caption, 'Wolverine...One Last Time. Hj," apparently referring to the third stand-alone Wolverine movie, set for release on March 3, 2017. [Instagram]   Transformers: Rejoice: more Transformers movies are on their way! Akiva Goldsman, a veteran writer and producer (I Am Legend, Insurgent), is in talks to organize a so-called "writer's room" that would come up with ideas for a multi-part sequel series, as well as possible spinoff films for the franchise, giving Transformers its own movie universe.

Transformers movie universe planned by Paramount

27 March 2015 3:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paramount wants to borrow the Star Wars model, as it seeks to expand the Transformers movie universe with new sequels and spin-offs.

With Transformers: Age Of Extinction being the highest grossing film on the planet in 2014, it's unsurprising that Paramount is already pressing ahead with plans for Transformers 5. It's unclear yet whether Michael Bay will return to direct that one, given that he's currently working on drama 13 Hours (although he slotted Pain & Gain in between the last two Transformers movies). But whether he does or doesn't, you can expect lots more Transformers in the years ahead.

That's because - yes! - plans are afoot for a Transformers movie universe, with a series of spin-off films being planned.

Akiva Goldsman, the writer of A Beautiful Mind, Batman & Robin and I Am Legend, is to work to set up a "writer's room", reports Deadline. He'll be doing this in conjunction with Michael Bay, »

Paramount Expanding ‘Transformers’ Universe with Spinoffs, Sequels

27 March 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Pictures, Michael Bay and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are bringing on Akiva Goldsman to help expand the “Transformers” cinematic universe.

Deadline reports Goldsman would not be writing but assembling and overseeing a “writers room” to hatch an idea for how to tackle a two-part sequel in the film’s franchise in addition to potential spinoffs. Goldsman would likely join Bay, di Bonaventura and Steven Spielberg as a producer.

It’s unknown whether Bay will return to directing duties for any new installments. He is currently in pre-production on his Benghazi thriller “13 Hours.”

The franchise is a huge priority for the studio with the most recent film, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” crossing the $1 billion worldwide box officer marker last year, making it the third film in the franchise to pass that milestone.

Goldsman is no stranger to shaping box-office juggernauts, having helped with tentpoles such as “I Am Legend,” “The Da Vinci Code »

New Transformers Sequels, Spinoffs to Be Spearheaded by Akiva Goldsman

27 March 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Well this is an interesting turn of events. Despite the fact that they’ve almost all been critically panned, the Transformers movies make money. They make a lot of money. Transformers: Age of Extinction alone grossed nearly $1.1 billion, so whether people want them or not, there will be more Transformers movies. The question, then, has been what form will the continuation of the franchise take? After Transformers: Dark of the Moon, director Michael Bay famously planned to hand the franchise off to a new filmmaker who could semi-reboot the series. He subsequently changed his mind and came back to helm Age of Extinction himself, resulting in pretty much the same movie we’ve been watching for four films in a row now, only with more Mark Wahlberg and less Shia Labeouf. Bay previously said he'd be handing Transformers 5 off to another filmmaker, and he subsequently opted to move forward »

Synopsis Unsheathed For Guy Ritchie’s Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur

11 March 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just yesterday, we brought you the first set photo from Guy Ritchie’s medieval epic Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, which found star Charlie Hunnam posing opposite the director on the first day of production. Now, Warner Bros. has unsheathed a synopsis for the pic, which will serve to launch a franchise of six blockbuster films, all to be spun out of Arthurian lore.

According to the studio, which does not mention the official title of the film despite it being previously referred to as Knights of the Roundtable, Ritchie’s take will unfurl thusly:

The bold new story introduces a streetwise young Arthur who runs the back alleys of Londonium with his gang, unaware of the life he was born for until he grasps hold of the sword Excalibur—and with it, his future. Instantly challenged by the power of Excalibur, Arthur is forced to make some hard choices. »

Box Office Democracy: “Focus”

10 March 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As a movie critic I believe I am obligated by law to review Focus through the lens of what it means for Will Smith’s career: if we have finally reached the end of the dark ages after almost eight years of films that were both critical and financial mixed bags. I might even tell you that we are back at the peak of the mountain we haven’t seen since I Am Legend and that we have our unquestioned biggest movie star in the world returned to us from the exile of After Earth and Men In Black 3. This isn’t that triumphant return; Will Smith is good but not extraordinary in a movie that will never be a blockbuster nor is it a critical darling. Focus is a perfectly serviceable crime movie that feels confined by a lack of ambition and, perhaps, a lack of budget.

It’s hard to classify Focus, »

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

Q&A: ‘Freakshow’ Host Ali Chapman on Setting Her Sights on Larger Roles

12 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

She may stand just 3’7”, but “Amazing Ali” Chapman has a personality that’s anything but little. She hosts the Venice Beach Freakshow that’s the subject of AMC’s reality series “Freakshow,” and has an appearance booked on TBS competition “King of the Nerds.” But she has her sights set on larger roles.

When did you decide you wanted to be an entertainer?

After I got a role as a body double for Will Smith’s daughter in “I Am Legend.” Being around the amazing actors, seeing how a big-budget film is made and being a part of that made me decide, ‘Enough with my day job.’

How did you get involved in “Freakshow”?

Todd Ray, the creator of “Freakshow,” found me on Facebook and had me come check out the Venice Beach show. I didn’t really know a lot about (the) sideshow but knew that I could host a show given the opportunity. »

10 Unused Film Endings That Were Better Than The Real Thing

11 February 2015 1:38 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Endings are tricky. There are films that are totally perfect for the first two acts, only to totally mess up the landing, which spoils your overall enjoyment. After all, the ending is the lasting impression that most movies leave you with, so if that sucks… You’ll probably decide that the whole thing sucked. So they’re tricky, but they’re also really, really important.

Especially considering Hollywood is so sequel-focussed right now. If people hate the ending to your movie, they’re less likely to come see the next one. Which is probably why producers appear to be agonising over endings more than ever, with sites constantly reporting on re-writes and reshoots of major blockbusters.

World War Z famously scrapped an entire third act, drafting in Damon Lindelof and Drew Goddard to provide a new finale. The former was also parachuted into Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, although how much his version helped is debatable. »

The Divergent Problem is Out of Control in New 'Insurgent' Trailer

10 February 2015 5:14 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You are living proof that the Divergent problem has grown beyond all control." Following the Super Bowl spot where literally everything was falling apart, this time a short new trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent explains that Erudite (led by Kate Winslet) is super concerned about the Divergent uprising, and they will stop at nothing to eradicate the rebels led by Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James). The role Ansel Elgort plays in this sequel seems to be more significant, and part of me wonders if he's actually taking Erudite's side now, creating a rift in the family (or what's left of them). Watch below! Here's the new trailer for Robert Schwentke's The Divergent Series: Insurgent from Facebook: You can still watch the full theatrical trailer for The Divergent Series: Insurgent right here. The Divergent Series: Insurgent is directed by Robert Schwentke (Red) and written by Brian Duffield »
