The first Oscar screener sent out this season was Summit's A Better Life, which quietly hit theaters back in late June and while it only took home $1.7 million from the box-office, it was loved by critics and now the studio is hoping to get a little additional love by being the first out of the gate with a screener and boy were they early.
Just as I was heading out to Toronto to cover the film festival I received two copies of the DVD and a copy of the Blu-ray. I was locked and loaded and ready to see a film I missed earlier in the year due to scheduling conflicts. So finally last night I settled in to see what was what and to very little surprise, director Chris Weitz has crafted a moving story that is essentially a remake of Vittorio de Sica's 1948 Oscar-winning film Bicycle Thieves, »

Naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson have recently surfaced online. Now, the FBI is reportedly after those who have hacked into the computer and/or cell phone files of various female celebrities. In addition to Johansson — it isn't clear if the FBI is involved in her particular case — rumored hacker victims include Mila Kunis, Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Christina Aguilera, Ali Larter, and Demi Lovato. Johansson's naked photos have been removed from various sites after her attorney sent out "cease and desist" letters. The images show the 26-year-old actress topless and her bare behind. They were allegedly stolen from her cell phone. Scarlett Johansson movies include Sofia Coppola's Academy Award-nominated Lost in Translation; Peter Webber's Girl with a Pearl Earring; Brian De Palma's The Black Dahlia; Christopher Nolan's The Prestige; Michael Bay's The Island; Jon Favreau's Iron Man 2; and the Woody Allen efforts Scoop, »

Ah, there’s something about the Italian language that makes me wanna see all Italian movies ever made. I’m just kidding. I love Italians, but that other part… well, I’ll skip it now. Still, one of the movies I’m actually looking forward to, is Quando La Notte, or if you prefer When The Night, which comes [...]

The picture business regards Patricia Clarkson as not content to mouth the stupid lines beautiful women are expected to believe in
For more than 20 years, a piquant added pleasure in film-going has been waiting for Patricia Clarkson to turn up for a few scenes, or even more. It's a rare thing for her to coast or do anything other than suggest an untidy life in wild bloom behind her few lines. And not many actresses of any age can shift from amiable to crazed, or from kind to intimidating, so fast. So, in Lone Scherfig's One Day, we sigh with gratification when we realise that the hero's mother, dying of cancer and having to be carried to bed, is Clarkson. We are not let down; even in her crisis, this mother has the lemon gaze and the fond but astringent voice that can survey her son (Jim Sturgess) and »

He achieved critical acclaim by shooting in England for Match Point. He won people’s hearts by shooting in Spain for Vicky Cristina Barcelona. And he achieved his greatest financial success ever by filming in France for Midnight in Paris. For a filmmaker who people have often said has his best days behind him, Woody Allen has been doing pretty well for himself by taking his, some would say uniquely New York, perspective overseas. Not one to mess up a bad thing, Allen is currently shooting another ensemble comedy, this time in Italy, which will be called The Bop Decameron. And before he’s even finished with that project, there are reports that he’s already negotiating where to take his film crew next. According to THR, Allen is currently in negotiations with Bavaria Studios in Munich, Germany to set his next project in their city. Initially I would have thought that filming a movie in Munich »

Woody Allen.s magical mystery tour of Europe.s finest destinations shows very little sign of slowing down. After a handful of features in London and its outskirts, the legendary New Yorker has made pitstops in Barcelona (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and France (Midnight in Paris). He.s currently filming The Bop Decameron in Rome, Italy with Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, Greta Gerwig and Alec Baldwin. From there, Allen prepares to shift to Germany for an as-yet-untitled picture that would shoot next summer. THR says Munich.s Bavaria Studios is negotiating with Allen to host the prolific septuagenarian. While the story was short on details . Allen usually keeps everything close to the chest until it.s time to open the movie . THR did note that Bavaria would come on board as a co-financier, and the film could have a budget near $25 million. Allen is coming off the most successful »
Lensing on Woody Allen's Rome-set film, "Bop Decameron," is still in progress but it looks like the prolific director already has his sights set on the setting of his next film. Continuing his European adventures, Allen is reportedly eyeing a teaming with Bavaria Studios which would see him visit Munich, Germany next summer for his next, currently-untitled and as-always mysterious film. The budget would run at around $25 million. The stop off in Munich will follow Allen's recent ventures in Barcelona ("Vicky Cristina Barcelona"), London ("You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger," "Match Point," "Cassandra's Dream," "Scoop") and Paris ("Midnight… »
This weekend was a bloodbath for new releases, and not because Conan the Barbarian and Fright Night's Jerry the vampire were spilling so much of it. Both of them bombed. Though I enjoyed Fright Night, can we at least hope that the combined failure here makes Hollywood question the need to remake every 80s hit? Maybe not. With The Smurfs chuggling along nicely despite virtually no one enjoying it, we'll still get name brand regurgitation until all of them start bombing.

When the most impressive thing about your movie is the sight of Colin Farrell smoldering in a dirty wifebeater, you know you’ve got problems. Such is the case with Fright Night, Dreamworks’ anemic remake of the 1985 horror-comedy about a high school boy who discovers there’s a murderous vampire living next door.
Viewed with modern eyes, the original feels quite old-fashioned, making the original a decent (if still highly unnecessary) candidate for a remake. Unfortunately, the updated version arrives on the scene with all the panache of a frozen cadaver.
While the Tom Holland-directed original is far from a great film, it’s got quirky charm and a cheeky self-awareness that has helped it maintain a cult following in the more than 25 years since its release. Not exactly scary and not exactly funny, it’s still compulsively watchable, with impressive makeup effects, a game cast (including »

With vampires holding strong as the trend du jour, you could suspect that recreating 1985 American horror film Fright Night was a calculated move. But with the glamorization of the blood suckers being what has made them so popular, you could argue that this film goes against formula since Jerry, is not your typical glittery, love-struck creature. I had the pleasure of chatting with director Craig Gillespie and the cast of Fright Night, Colin Farrell, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and screenwriter Marti Noxon during a special round table discussion at 2011 San Diego Comic Con late last month. As a collective, everyone talked about why this version stays true to the original but adds the magic available to us twenty six years later to create something fresh and scary to a whole new generation. To kick off this very exclusive discourse, director Craig Gillespie opened up about what convinced him »

It's conventional wisdom that Woody Allen's American fan base has all but deserted him over the last 20 years. Between his 1990s personal scandals and a series of hit-or-miss movies that seemed like pale xeroxes of his earlier films, viewers in his own country had pretty much abandoned him to the French. So how, then, can one explain the smash success of his current 'Midnight in Paris,' which has grossed more than any movie Allen has made in his four-decade career?
The romantic comedy, which was still in the top 10 at the box office last weekend before falling to number 12 this weekend after more than two months in theaters, has grossed $45.7 million in North America as of July 28. That tops the $40.1 million grossed by Allen's 'Hannah and Her Sisters' a quarter century ago, and it doubles the earnings of »

Hallo folks! Ester here. You might remember me from such previous forays into Film Experience as my "Reader Spotlight" and my Two Stars, One Slot tribute piece, "Waif vs. Waif: Mia Wasikowska vs. Saoirse Ronan." Today I come to you with a feminist chip on my shoulder and a spark of rage in my eye, and my target is Woody Allen -- specifically his tepid time-travel fantasy, Midnight in Paris.
It's not surprising that Hollywood, the quintessential vehicle of nostalgia, is obsessed with landmarks. Jack Nicholson has only to get up in the morning and put his shoes on the right feet four shooting days out of five to get nominated for an Oscar, because Hollywood is just so gosh darn grateful an old-school movie star like him is still gracing films with his presence. Similarly, Woody Allen has only to make a movie that is not truly godawful terrible »
