'Guardians of the Galaxy': Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel Salute Their Own Heroes at NYC Screening

30 July 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Chris Pratt might play an intergalactic superhero on big screen, but while at SoHo's Crosby Street Hotel on Monday, the Guardians of the Galaxy star was quick to acknowledge who the real heroes are on Planet Earth. "The men and women in the armed forces, special forces, military people," Pratt told The Hollywood Reporter at a special New York City screening of Guardians, presented by The Cinema Society with Men's Fitness and Fiji Water. "They sacrifice themselves on a daily basis for our freedom and to keep us safe, and that's pretty damn heroic." Photos 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Screening:

The End of Comic-Con: How the once mighty event lost its relevance

30 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on Comic-Con and how the once mighty event lost is relevance…

Rome was once the center of the Universe. A place of innovation, inspiration, and cultural relevance which the world had never seen. The capital of an empire that influenced every society it conquered. Now it’s a city in Italy where tourists go on holiday to take pictures in a fountain.

Comic-Con has lost it’s luster. It’s no longer ‘hip’ or ‘relevant’. It used to be cool, like thin Jailhouse Rock Elvis. Now it’s a bloated, bedazzles jumpsuit wearing shell of its former self destined to die on a toilet. Once it was a comic book convention where geeks and nerds could gather as an annual celebration to geek culture, but that’s before ‘the man’ got it’s greasy hands on it. San Diego Comic-Con has been co-opted by Hollywood Studios and been »

Some dudes sent Walter White into space, just 'cause

17 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

What do you get when you give the guys at this second-screen app a Walter White bobblehead, a powerful balloon, and an eensy-weensy camera? Why, this video, which is both totally ridiculous and surprisingly moving. (Thank mood-setting music by The National Parks and Megafaun, which make “Walter White in Space” sort of like Robot Chicken crossed with Planet Earth.)

You want to watch this thing? You’re goddamn right.

Breaking Bad returns… never, because the universe is a cruel and unforgiving place. But have you heard about Better Call Saul? »

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Is The Highest-Grossing Movie Of The Year

14 July 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

They talked shit, but people went. The reviews were harsh, but people went. Fans said it was the worst so far, but people went. And now Transformers: Age Of Extinction has taken only three weeks to become the highest-grossing film of 2014. I hope you're happy, Planet Earth! Transformers: Age Of Extinction has grossed a downright-unfair $752 million in only three weeks of release, despite not being available in every territory. What this means is that while the film is slowing down in general release, it's soon to get another big bump and most likely surpass a billion dollars. The movie sent a hat tip in X-Men: Days Of Future Past's direction this weekend, as previously the mutant romp was the year's biggest film at $731 million worldwide. Do I smell crossover? No? Oh, well, I'll keep that to myself. Transformers: Age Of Extinction collected these grosses in the wake of the »

Snowpiercer movie review: hunger train

10 July 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hauntingly grim, full of appalling ironies and awful truths. This is most definitely not the feel-good movie of the summer. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There’s a reason why Snowpiercer — which could have, theoretically, easily been a centerpiece summer film for a major Hollywood studio — is getting handled with the timid kid gloves of an arthouse release by the industry, quietly dribbling into a few cinemas here and there instead of getting a big opening-weekend push out onto three thousand screens. It’s a reason that has a lot to do with what the film has to say about human nature, hope, despotism, and a revolutionary spirit that might want to counter that despotism. What Snowpiercer is about offers too harsh »

Snoop Dogg's Plizzanet Earth Is Your New Favorite Show

1 July 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

No one knows nature quite like Snoop Dogg, and the rapper stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week to prove it. Plizzanet Earth looks unsurprisingly similar to Planet Earth, except it's hosted by Snoop Dogg, and he's mostly talking about ram fights: "I've never understood rams. What do they get out of this?" It's kind of like watching Discovery Channel next to Snoop Dogg, and honestly, who doesn't want to do that? »

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey’ will cause a supernova in your mind

13 June 2014 8:39 PM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Science has been under attack of late and I’m not sure why. Some want to tear down the discoveries and words of caution by scientists, as if to discredit them like an urban legend. No one wants to put money into space programs anymore, and there are those who continue to bury their heads in the sand when it comes to the environment, greenhouse effect, global warming and other scientific truths. It’s not always easy to understand science but to outright deny it is a movement that is befuddling as much as it is frustrating. So what better time than to revive Cosmos, the TV show hosted by the late scientist Carl Sagan, who succeeded in breaking down the walls of science, putting the discoveries in a digestible format that would help communicate the wonders of science to non-scientists.

Takashi Shimizu’s 7500 Opened Somewhere on Planet Earth

12 June 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

A few years have passed since myself and a handful of genre colleagues ventured to the CBS lot in Studio City for a set visit to Takashi Shimizu's 7500 - the ghost story-on-a-plane thriller. And by "few years" I mean three. Cameras rolled in 2011 with Ryan Kwanten, Amy Smart, Leslie Bibb, Nicky Whelan and Alex Frost starring. And yet, we've haven't see the film released domestically. There have been rumors over the years pointing to false release dates. Hell, one theater here in Los Angeles accidentally listed it on its website, but when you went to buy tickets it directed you to another film.

The post Takashi Shimizu’s 7500 Opened Somewhere on Planet Earth appeared first on Shock Till You Drop. »

Why a lack of risk-taking with Ant-Man is bad news for Marvel…

1 June 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…

The Ant-Man news regarding Edger Wright’s (and Adam McKay’s) departure gained a considerable amount of coverage and criticism. Forbes writer, Scott Mendelson, manage to argue a point that may not seem so obvious, claiming “Hollywood Doesn’t Care About ‘Fanboy’ Approval”:

“They will protest and criticize, perhaps rightfully so, but they will be the first to post or share the first poster and the first trailer and the first clip. The hardcore fans are the least important demographic for the likes of Walt Disney and Warner Bros. because they are already sold on the property in question.”

Read the full article here.

While I agree that hardcore fans are a sure-sell, we have been in this Universe since 2008 – and after Avengers Assemble in 2012, we have had two films a year (with a double-film year in 2011 also). I know that personally, »

One of Earliest Surviving Academy Award Nominees in Acting Categories Dead at 88

1 June 2014 2:41 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Joan Lorring, 1945 Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee, dead at 88: One of the earliest surviving Academy Award nominees in the acting categories, Lorring was best known for holding her own against Bette Davis in ‘The Corn Is Green’ (photo: Joan Lorring in ‘Three Strangers’) Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Joan Lorring, who stole the 1945 film version of The Corn Is Green from none other than Warner Bros. reigning queen Bette Davis, died Friday, May 30, 2014, in the New York City suburb of Sleepy Hollow. So far, online obits haven’t mentioned the cause of death. Lorring, one of the earliest surviving Oscar nominees in the acting categories, was 88. Directed by Irving Rapper, who had also handled one of Bette Davis’ biggest hits, the 1942 sudsy soap opera Now, Voyager, Warners’ The Corn Is Green was a decent if uninspired film version of Emlyn Williams’ semi-autobiographical 1938 hit play about an English schoolteacher, »

Veteran Bergman Star, Coen Bros' Cast Members to Star in Sw: Episode VII

29 April 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast announced (photo: ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ cast member Max von Sydow in ‘Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close’) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members have been announced. The world had been waiting with bated breath. Who will The Force be with? Well, not with humankind and its fellow Earth dwellers (apart from cockroaches and various types of worms) — if news reports about the eventual fate of the planet are accurate. But don’t despair. The End credits for Planet Earth should come after Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios (instead of former Star Wars film distributor 20th Century Fox) amass a few more billion dollars following the release of a whole array of new Star Wars sequels in the coming years. So, the announced (mostly European) Star Wars: Episode VII cast members are, to date, the following: Oscar Isaac (Sucker Punch, widely praised for his performance in Joel »

"The Late Show with RuPaul"? Now that would've been a scream. But because we live on the Planet Earth, Stephen Colbert was chosen to take over the late-night franchise from David Letterman, and he's admittedly a fantastic choice for the job. Here's a clip from his appearance on tonight's episode, during which he offers a ray of hope to boobs everywhere. Yes, you. Follow Riot on Twitter »

What to watch, Earth Day edition -- Video

22 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Earth Day, the perfect occasion for you to kick up your feet, sit on the couch, and watch some movies. Okay, so this may not be the traditional way to celebrate the day, but it is something good to do after a day of volunteering — or a day of thinking about volunteering.

The first Earth Day was April 22, 1970, and has been celebrated each April 22 since then. It’s a day to honor the Earth, to help the Earth, to think about the Earth. Lots of Earth. Now’s a tricky time for this lovely ol’ planet though, with global warming »

‘Bears’ a gorgeous but untrustworthy new documentary from Disneynature

17 April 2014 9:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bears

Written by Alastair Fothergill and Adam Chapman

Directed by Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey

UK and USA, 2013

During its fledgling years as a film studio, the Walt Disney Company helped revolutionize the nature documentary with its True-Life Adventure series. Here, as never before, audiences could thrill to the story of seals, beavers, bears, tigers, and the rest of the creatures sharing space with us on Earth. These days, what is most striking about these early documentaries is less the physical ground they cover, and more that they come from a patient time in filmmaking. Documentaries like The Living Desert and Seal Island featured narration and music, and sometimes attempted to play up the humor of an animalistic situation, but they were still created by people who afforded their presumed audience a base level of intelligence. In some respects, these nature documentaries were born out of the insistence on »

Blood Moon To Appear Tonight: Total Lunar Eclipse Visible

13 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

From Monday night into Tuesday morning, a Blood Moon will be visible from North America, caused by a total lunar eclipse.

Blood Moon

The lunar eclipse is said to start around 12:54 a.m. Et on Tuesday, April 15, but the moon will not be totally eclipsed until around 3:07 a.m. Et, and therefore will be most visible then. The total lunar eclipse will last from 3:07 a.m. to 4:25 a.m. Et.

Despite the late hour, what makes this lunar eclipse stand out is its name: a Blood Moon. During a total eclipse, the way the light is refracted in the Earth’s atmosphere makes the moon appear deep red, thus inspiring the name of Blood Moon.

Total Lunar Eclipse Visible In North America

Interested people in North and South America should be able to see the Blood Moon shine bright red around 3:07 a. »

Film Review: ‘Bears’

9 April 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The quid pro quo thrown down by the Mouse House’s Disneynature series is pretty straightforward: If you can stomach the cheesy narration and the contrived storyline, you get a wealth of fairly glorious wildlife footage courtesy of “Planet Earth” auteur Alastair Fothergill in return. For the series’ latest installment, this proves to be an entirely fair trade. Though still clearly targeted toward the youngest of sensibilities, “Bears” is far less obvious in its pandering and desperate in its anthropomorphism than its 2012 predecessor, “Chimpanzee,” and thanks to its emphasis on actual ursine behavior, it seems unlikely to offend any attendant parents or zoologists in wide release.

Every production helmed by Fothergill (who shares director credit here with Keith Scholey) is bound to include at least one “never seen that before” moment of natural weirdness or grace. In “Bears,” the defining shot is an ultra-slow-motion, ultra-high-def image of an airborne salmon »
