Barkin's Ex Vows To Fight On After Losing Appeal

3 December 2010 11:16 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Ellen Barkin has emerged triumphant in her ongoing court battle with ex-husband Ron Perelman after a New York judge upheld a decision ordering the businessman to hand over $4.4 million (£2.93 million) for breach of contract.

The Ocean's Thirteen star launched Applehead Pictures with her brother, George, in November 2005 and Perelman, the chairman of cosmetics giant Revlon Inc., agreed to make quarterly investments in her production company in 2006 and 2007.

But the couple split in 2006 and Perelman's payments ceased, prompting Barkin to sue for breach of contract the following year. Under the terms of their agreement, billionaire Perelman was expected to pour a total of $3.4 million (£2.27 million) into the firm.

Perelman countersued the Barkins, accusing the pair of misappropriating funds to finance the launch of another company.

New York State Supreme Court Justice Debra James ruled in Barkin's favour in December 2009, but Perelman challenged the decision and took the case to the State Appeals Court in Manhattan.

However, the appeals panel rejected his motion during a hearing on Thursday, backing up Judge James' order for Perelman to pay up with interest.

But he is refusing to accept the decision and has vowed to fight on.

Perelman's spokeswoman, Christine Taylor, tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "We still maintain Ms. Barkin should not be entitled to any additional money beyond the enormous settlement she received five years ago. Mr Perelman has moved on from this and is leaving it to his attorneys to handle the still-pending claims against Ms. Barkin and others based on their misconduct in managing and controlling Applehead Pictures." »

George Clooney in Talks for The Man From Uncle

17 November 2010 7:02 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

We just reported that director Stephen Soderbergh is in final negotiations to direct a big screen version of "The Man From Uncle," and now comes word that the filmmaker is already in talks with George Clooney to play the lead. He and Clooney worked together on multiple projects, including "Ocean's Eleven," "Ocean's Twelve," "Ocean's Thirteen," "Solaris," "The Good German," and "Out of Sight." The film could go into production before the end of 2011 and will be set in the 1960. "Uncle" aired on NBC from 1964-68, during a Cold War period that saw numerous spy shows hit the airwaves. James Bond author Ian Fleming was even a creator of the show, which focused on the adventures of American and Russian members of a secret agency called the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. »

DVD2Blu Gets Better

11 November 2010 11:14 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Editor's Note: Unfortunately this promotion has expired and the service has reverted to trade-ins only for Warner Brother titles. DVDs from other studios are no longer accepted - hopefully they'll do this again soon though.

Warner Brothers' push to have consumers fully embrace the Blu-ray format started in April of last year when they announced their Red2Blu program, which allowed anyone who'd purchased a WB title on HD-DVD to exchange it with about $5 per disc and they'd receive the exact same title on Blu-ray. For anyone who'd sunk some cash in the defunct HD-DVD format it was a pretty nice deal; unfortunately other studios never jumped on board with quite the same gusto.

Then, at about this time last year, Warner Brothers announced an addition to the Blu-ray exchange concept: they put out a selection of 55 titles which, if you owned the DVD version, could be exchanged for the »

What's the most flaw-ridden scheme in cinema?

17 October 2010 4:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

We asked you to suggest the most defective crime capers on screen. Here are some truly ludicrous grand plans

@AcropolisNow Ocean's Eleven – how did the fliers for hookers, which doubled as the money, get into the vault? If the Swat team had brought in large bags that looked like money and then came out without them would that have not sent the alarm bells ringing?

@RichAlchemy Ocean's Twelve. The fact that they spend at least half their time trying to steal £2m worth of stuff, when they need £90m, and their equipment looks like it costs far more than £2m. The fact they construct a ludicrous plan to steal an egg from a museum, only to find that the French guy did it by dancing round the lasers. Oh, and the fact they actually get said egg by nicking a guy's backpack off a train.

@unke How about the scheme »

Vancouver International Film Festival - Film & TV Forum: New Filmmakers' Day

3 October 2010 3:34 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Nine in the morning on a Saturday, and I'm sitting in the Vancouver International Film Festival's Vancity Theatre listening to Telefilm Canada staff describe the ins and outs of their funding application criteria.  Exciting stuff, yes?  It must be, because the theatre is packed.  Hundreds of emerging filmmakers are sinking their teeth into New Filmmakers' Day - the final day of Viff's Film and TV Forum.  

Despite being the biggest film festival (350 films, attendance around 150,000) in  one of the biggest production centers in North America, Viff remains more about the audience than the industry.  Still, the Forum's programming has been strong for years, and the 2010 edition doesn't disappoint.  Today also has a substantial genre flavour.  (Even our good friends from Telefilm, in response to the perception that historically they have mostly funded "fucked-up family dramas", freely acknowledged that times have changed and they have a lot more leeway to support good comedy, »

Indeed, Joaquin Phoenix Faked "Crazy"

17 September 2010 8:42 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Trust your instincts, Casey Affleck (Ocean's 13) has finally admitted that Gladiator-actor Joaquin Phoenix (pictured) was not crazy but just acting crazy for the sake of their documentary I'm Still Here. The "performance art" had Phoenix declaring to the world he was abandoning his acting career to become a hip-hop artist while brother-in-law Affleck just happened to be following him around with a camera, capturing the whole thing. The wildly-bearded Phoenix performed horribly on stage and embarassingly on an instant classic appearance on "Late Night with David Letterman." Affleck said the reason behind the trickery is the point behind the documentary, which is "the disintegration of celebrity, without the clutter of preconceived notions."

Michael Madsen Learns to Be, Zoe Kazan Explodes, and More New on DVD

7 September 2010 6:30 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

"Being Michael Madsen" (2010)

Directed by Michael Mongillo

Released by Midnight Releasing

While not as distinguished or meta as "Being John Malkovich," expect this mockumentary about the "Reservoir Dogs" star to be equally surreal as Madsen recruits sister Virginia and "Kill Bill" co-stars Daryl Hannah and the late David Carradine to co-star in this film that sees him accused of murder. Rather than sit idly by, Madsen turns the table on the paparazzi photographer fueling the allegations by hiring a trio of filmmakers to follow his every move.

"Beneath Clouds" (2002)

Directed by Ivan Sen

Released by Cinema Epoch

This Australian drama stars Dannielle Hall and the late Damian Pitt as Lena and Vaughn, a pair of strangers thrown together by circumstance to travel across the country to Sydney where Lena hopes to learn more about her long-absent father and Vaughn hope to leave behind his criminal past and see his ailing mother. »

Weintraub Caught Out By Clooney & Pitt's Prank

30 July 2010 9:07 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hollywood producer Jerry Weintraub was caught out by pranksters Brad Pitt and George Clooney on a boozy flight to Los Angeles - the pair filled his underpants with M&M's after he fell asleep.

The trio was flying to back to California after a trip to Italy, where they were promoting their Ocean's Thirteen film, when the actors challenged him to a drinking contest.

But the practical jokers didn't tell Weintraub that they were secretly filling their glasses with water.

The movie mogul remembers, "We drink one bottle, two bottles - we get on the third bottle and I started feeling woozy, and I never get like that. I could drink forever. These guys are drinking with me and I'm woozy and they're fine.

"And all of a sudden I pass out. I get on the couch and I sleep all the way to L.A."

And the Hollywood heavyweight was in a rage when he woke up, hungover and with a wod of melted chocolate down his pants.

He says, "When I got up I felt squishy stuff in my shoes, in my underwear, in my clothes, and they put M&M's in my underwear... I said, 'You sons of b**ches! What did you guys do to me?'

"I found out from the pilots and the stewardess they were drinking water." »

The Amazing 'Race'

29 July 2010 4:05 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Eddie Izzard is best known as a transvestite standup comic. He is also a film, television, and Tony-nominated dramatic actor. He's a political activist for Britain's Labour Party; within 10 years he expects to run for mayor of London. Also an endurance athlete, he recently completed 43 marathons in 51 days to benefit Sport Relief, a charity that benefits the poorest and most vulnerable populations in the U.K. and across the globe.Currently he is performing on Broadway, replacing James Spader in David's Mamet's "Race," and as Izzard sees it, all the pieces of his life inform one another, incongruous as they may seem. "In politics you have to pay attention to detail and be precise, and that's especially useful for Mamet's language," Izzard says in his dressing room before a performance. "My own diction had gotten sloppy, which works for me in my standup act. But in politics you have to articulate, »

Movie review: 'Micmacs'

13 July 2010 11:30 AM, PDT | Tampa Film Examiner | See recent Tampa Film Examiner news »

Courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics

Micmacs has been slowly releasing across the U.S. since the beginning of 2010.  The French film from director Jean-Pierre Jeunet has a comedic vibe from the 1970s.  Initially, the flick carried a tone similar to The Pink Panther movies starring the late Peter Sellers.  Not the remake with Steve Martin.  That would be insulting to Micmacs. 

As the 105 minute feature went on, it leaves the realm of The Pink Panther and transitions into a bumbling Ocean's Eleven skit.  Though not as polished, entertaining, and developed as the cast led by Clooney and Pitt.  Micmacs did have its moments using clever characters.  The whole theme of the flick bought into the saying of, "One man's junk is another man's treasure."

Matt Damon joined his Ocean's 13 costar Don Cheadle on Saturday for the Ante Up for Africa poker tournament in Las Vegas. The Damon clan left NYC last week to embark on their holiday weekend adventure - their family usually heads off for a Hawaiian vacation during the first week of July, and sometimes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner, and their girls go along too! Matt spoke about balancing his career and home life at the gambling event, and he took particular care to praise his wife Luciana. He said, "She really keeps it together. . . We just talk it out and work it all out. You say, this is the job and this is the time commitment and this is where it will be. I’m a lot easier to hire if you’re doing movies in New York."

DVD/Blu-ray Announcements: 'Solitary', 'Wright' & Bogart

1 July 2010 3:17 PM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

If catching up on films you may have missed in-between the wretched doldrums of this summer's releases is your goal, then you are in luck. Even if you have to wait until September to do it. As reported last week, we are in the in-between of home entertainment announcements while the studios fill-up the month before October when the market will begin to flood with early summer titles and potential holiday sell-through wonders.

Theatrical

The best of these titles is Anchor Bay's Solitary Man from directors Brian Koppelman and David Levien (responsible for writing Rounders and Ocean's Thirteen.) This one features Michael Douglas doing his best work since Wonder Boys in a variation of his morally-corrupt businessman routine forced to confront his own mortality and a community of friends and family that is slowly dwindling. The cast includes Susan Sarandon, Jenna Fischer, Danny DeVito, Jesse Eisenberg and a feisty, standout »

Koppelman And Levien On 'Rounders 2', 'Untouchables' Prequel, More

22 May 2010 8:03 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

David Levien and Brian Koppelman are just before releasing the new film Solitary Man, which Koppelman wrote and the duo directed together. A drama about a used-car magnate whose life descends into a series of self-destructive relationships, the film marks a departure from the criminal tomes and con man stories, including Rounders, Runaway Jury and Ocean's Thirteen, for which they're best known. During a recent interview with the screenwriters and directors, however, they offered some updates on a number of projects they're working on, including a long-gestating sequel to Rounders, their first produced script, a number of other adaptations, and a prequel to The Untouchables which at one point was to be directed by the helmer of the original film, Brian De Palma himself.

Interview: 'Solitary Man' Filmmakers David Levien & Brian Koppelman

21 May 2010 10:03 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

As the authors of Rounders, Knockaround Guys, and Ocean's Thirteen, David Levien and Brian Koppelman are known for writing about characters who are great con artists, but Solitary Man marks the first time one of them is basically conning himself. In their new film, which Koppelman wrote and they directed together, Michael Douglas plays the king of all snake-oil salesman, a used car magnate who becomes a shameless, self-destructive lothario after a doctor's visit hints at the possibility he might be dying. Always seeing all of the angles but ignoring the eventual repercussions, Douglas' character feels like the culmination of the grifters and con men the duo created in their previous films, but with the added gravitas that comes from knowing happy endings are the stuff of movies, not real life.

Cinematical sat down with Koppelman and Levien for an intimate chat about Solitary Man following a screening at the 2010 Dallas International Film Festival. »

Brian Koppelman and David Levien Together Again For "Solitary Man"

18 May 2010 11:51 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

After penning the scripts for "Ocean's 13" and "Rounders," Brian Koppelman and David Levien have turned their attention to the worst con of all - self-deception. In "Solitary Man," the duo's second directorial effort following 2001's "Knockaround Guys," Michael Douglas stars as Ben Kalmen, a used car baron who has seen his charms and fortune stall out like a Chevy Vega when a bad business deal and a divorce (from Susan Sarandon) leave him adrift in his 60s, with his opportunities for redemption limited to taking the teenage daughter of his girlfriend (Mary-Louise Parker) for a weekend college visit and repairing his relationship with his own daughter (Jenna Fischer) and her son. Likened to a "white-collar 'Wrestler'" by Levien, Douglas trades heavily on his well-established iconography to play the irrepressible ladies' man who finds that time is a crueler mistress than his several women on the side.
