Andy Serkis Almost Said No to Gollum in Lord of the Rings

13 October 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Andy Serkis has become a true force in Hollywood. Not only is he a fine actor, having appeared in movies like The Prestige and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he is a pioneer in performance capture technology, which has changed Hollywood in recent years. Much of that started with his work on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy that begins with Fellowship of the Ring, in which he portrayed Gollum. However, it turns out that he almost turned down the role.

The 53-year-old actor is now trying his hand at directing, with his feature debut Breathe hitting theaters very soon and is already positioned as an Oscar hopeful. While promoting the movie, Andy Serkis spoke with The Guardian and, while talking about his experience on Lord of the Rings, he revealed that he initially wasn't interested in the role. That is, until he realized the full potential in what Peter Jackson was doing. »

In a superhero origin tale unlike any other, the film is the incredible true story of what inspired Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create the iconic Wonder Woman character in the 1940’s. While Marston’s feminist superhero was criticized by censors for her ‘sexual perversity’, he was keeping a secret that could have destroyed him. Marston’s muses for the Wonder Woman character were his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women who defied convention: working with Marston on human behavior research — while building a hidden life with him that rivaled the greatest of superhero disguises. »

The Current War Review

14 September 2017 5:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon’s sophomore feature, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was a heartfelt, humorous and devastating coming-of-age exhibition that handled its challenging subject matter with the necessary heft, heed and nimbleness. The acumen, command and inventiveness shown by Gomez-Rejon in his adaptation of Jesse Andrews’ novel justly earned the director a seat behind the camera for a far more high-profile and hotly-anticipated picture, The Current War.

A dramatization of the combative and cut-throat sprint between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to illuminate the United States, The Current War is a biographical history lesson rooted in the electric transmission system competition in which Westinghouse’s alternating current (AC) and Edison’s direct current (DC) vied for supremacy.

Benedict Cumberbatch characterizes an egotistical, family-oriented Thomas Edison, burdened by genius and fearful of his own mortality. The opposition, George Westinghouse, is interpreted by Michael Shannon. An entrepreneur and engineer, Shannon’s »

‘The Current War’ Review: Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Shannon Short Circuit a Shockingly Dull Epic — Tiff

10 September 2017 1:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, director of the perceptive and unjustly maligned “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” is a young, thoughtful filmmaker with an inventive visual imagination and a very bright future ahead of him. That being said, something clearly went very, very wrong during the making of “The Current War.” A lifeless period drama about the rivalry between two of America’s greatest geniuses, Gomez-Rejon’s lavish third feature unfolds like a more historically accurate riff on “The Prestige,” albeit one lacking even a trace amount of magic (Nikola Tesla factors in, however, and Nicholas Hoult’s performance pays tribute to David Bowie).

The initial aim, however, may have been closer to “Hamilton.” First conceived as a stage musical by eventual screenwriter Michael Mitnick, “The Current War” tells the story of the race to light up the world. It begins, rather inexplicably, in December of 1880, after Thomas Alva Edison (a »

Musician to Movie Star: In the Footsteps of Elvis

19 August 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the recent 40th anniversary of the death of Elvis, here is a look at those music stars who made a transition to film. Some were more successful than others. Some made a fleeting crossover and some are best forgotten as far as their film careers went…

In terms of the King, Elvis has an undoubtedly huge legacy as far as music goes. His influence as far as attitude, showmanship and indeed the music itself is still being felt. He was in that bracket of the most influential musical acts of his era alongside the Beatles. However his impact on film was also important. He showed that a cultural phenomenon could operate over two platforms.

Beginning in 1956 with Love Me Tender, Elvis would go onto make over 30 films until 1969. A few more iconic than others of course, such as Jailhouse Rock, Viva Las Vegas and some more interesting attempts to »

Samuel Brace with his top five protagonists of Christopher Nolan’s movies…

Christopher Nolan had established himself as one of the defining directors of the 2000’s by the time The Dark Knight was released, and in the current decade he has gone onto further enhance his filmography, cementing his place in the list of greatest living directors.

Nolan films get a lot of attention for their high concept plots and balance of blockbuster action with intricate and adult themes, but Nolan is also incredibly adept at providing movie audiences with complicated and fascinating protagonists, heroes, and the not so heroic, that are some of the most watchable characters anywhere in cinema. Ranking them is difficult, but based on factors such as complexity, charisma, intrigue, and the ability to defy adversity, the feat has been attempted.

So without further ado, here are the top five protagonists of Christopher Nolan movies.

Stuck In Stories: The Films Of Christopher Nolan

21 July 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk arrives this weekend and it's arriving to predictably good reviews. His poorest reviewed film on Rotten Tomatoes is Interstellar at 71%. He has four films (including Dunkirk, so far) reviewed in the 90s. As a director, his movies have grossed more than $4 billion, making Nolan one of the most successful filmmakers of all time. His films are master classes in storytelling, and this is all the more impressive when one considers that, for the most part, he's making all of his films about the same thing.

Christopher Nolan is perhaps the purest of storytellers. All of his movies, over and over again, are stories about storytelling itself. Perhaps this arose when he was yet a boy, at an age somewhere between nine and twelve, when he decided that he wanted to make movies professionally. Perhaps this decision at such a young age is the reason that he »

'Dunkirk' Heading Toward $51M Debut, 'Girls Trip' Strong, 'Valerian' Sinks

20 July 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent Box Office Mojo news »

Saturday a.m. Update: With an estimated $19.8 million, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is heading toward an opening weekend right around $50 million to $52 million. It's a great start for the WWII feature, especially given the holds Nolan's films have shown in recent history as well as the critical response and now the "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, a notch above the "B+" audiences gave Interstellar. Additionally, Dunkirk has now been released in 46 international markets where it has so far grossed $21.2 million after releasing earlier this week in a handful of territories. We'll have more on the overall international performance with tomorrow morning's report. In second is Universal's release of Girls Trip, which is scorching the weekend, delivering an estimated $11.68 million on Friday, heading toward a $29+ million opening. The film should also show long legs looking ahead after receiving a rare "A+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Finally, Stx's release of EuropaCorp's »

The Preview Reel: Will Dunkirk Win the Week?

20 July 2017 7:41 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Welcome to this week’s “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide release movies. With Baby Driver opening three weeks ago, followed by Spider-Man: Homecoming, War for the Planet of the Apes just last week, and Dunkirk this week, we are unquestionably in the best stretch of this summer’s wide releases. Enjoy it, because August looks bleak. This is also a rare week where we don’t have a sequel or reboot opening as we have three intriguing “new” releases: Christopher Nolan’s World War II epic Dunkirk, Luc Besson’s space adventure Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and the R-rated comedy Girls Trip. There’s seemingly something for everybody this week.

What we are excited about: Christopher Nolan is one of the most celebrated directors of the 21st century. With films like Memento, Inception, The Prestige, and of course the Dark Knight trilogy, »

Poll: What’s the Best Christopher Nolan Movie?

19 July 2017 12:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The reviews are in, and “Dunkirk” may be Christopher Nolan’s best movie yet.

Variety‘s awards editor Kristopher Tapley called the director’s latest “the first slam-dunk Oscar contender of 2017”; chief film critic Peter Debruge praised it as “a bravura virtual-eyewitness account from multiple perspectives — one that fragments and then craftily interweaves events as seen from land, sea and air.”

But Nolan has a long line of lauded films that came before “Dunkirk,” going back to 1998’s “Following.” A couple of years later came “Memento,” cementing a base of loyal fans who turn out to the box office to solve his cinematic puzzles.

With Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan has finally hit the heights of Kubrick

19 July 2017 6:43 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Any mention of the K-word in relation to Nolan has long prompted sneers, but his 10th film is dizzying, dazzling and diamond-hard. It could be his Paths of Glory

For quite a while now – at least since the release of Inception in 2010, Christopher Nolan has been regularly touted as the modern counterpart to the late, great Stanley Kubrick, whose dazzling accomplishments across multiple genres are generally held as the benchmark of American cinema. Back in 2010 those comparisons seemed absurd: how could the writer-director of classy-but-overthought superhero movies, as well as middling oddities such as The Prestige, be seriously thought of in the same bracket as the lambent mind behind Dr Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange and Barry Lyndon?

Well, it probably helps that Nolan and Kubrick share a studio – Warner Bros – whose marketing department have been probably the most active in seeding the whispers of equivalency. Nolan »
