12 expensive and eccentric modern Hollywood movies

25 July 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 26, 2016

They cost millions and they’re very, very odd. We take a look at 12 expensive and eccentric Hollywood films from the past 40 years...

The risk-averse nature of filmmaking means that the world’s more maverick and outrageous writers and directors have to make do with relatively low budgets. Nicolas Winding Refn drenched the screen in all kinds of sordid, violent and startling imagery in such films as Only God Forgives and this year’s The Neon Demon, but the combined budget of those probably didn’t even match the catering budget for something like Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Every so often, though, a truly bonkers film slips through the Hollywood studio system - often by accident. From horror sequels to original sci-fi adventures, here are 12 incredibly expensive and gloriously eccentric Hollywood movies from the past 40 years.

The Exorcist II (1977)

Budget: $14 million

Like most films made for purely financial reasons, »

Marie Colvin biopic sets 'Cartel Land' director Matthew Heineman

20 July 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Director of Oscar-nominated documentary set for war biopic produced by Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah and Thunder Road.

Cartel Land director Matthew Heineman has been tapped to direct Charlize Theron-produced biopic Marie Colvin, about the eponymous Us war correspondent who died in 2012 while covering the Syrian conflict.

Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures is producing the prestige package with Theron’s Denver & Delilah Productions and What Maisie Knew executive-producer Marissa McMahon.

Screen understands that the production could get underway at the end of the year however there is still no official word on whether Theron will also take on the lead role in the film, something she has done on most films produced by Denver & Delilah to date, including Aileen Wuornos biopic Monster, for which Theron won an Oscar.

Script comes from Arash Amel (The Titan) and is based on Marie Brenner’s Vanity Fair article about Colvin’s revered life as a war correspondent »

Review: Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan

18 July 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Once upon a time, a young film enthusiast was taken by Willis O’Brien’s work in King Kong and decided to devote his life to making fantastical films and memorable creatures that would be remembered for generations to come. This young man was Ray Harryhausen, and the newly released documentary by Gilles Penso, Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan showcases Harryhausen’s passions and the passions they inflamed and inspired in others, including such film personalities as Guillermo Del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Terry Gillian, John Landis, and Peter Jackson.

Recently released by Arrow video, the documentary is an obvious labor of love for all involved, as the interview subjects all seem very enthusiastic while discussing Harryhausen and his overlooked contribution to cinema, which has carried on a unique legacy with his use of stop motion animation and the often times ridiculously detailed puppets used to create countless characters and sequences »

The Stars of Stranger Things Dish on the Show’s "Gnarly, Weird Monster"

15 July 2016 8:35 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Thanks to a heavy dose of mystery and some nostalgic teasers, Netflix's Stranger Things has quickly become one of the most highly anticipated shows of the Summer. Since we couldn't deal with the suspense any more, Popsugar tried to pry a few fun secrets out of David Harbour and Millie Bobby Brown, who respectively star as a gruff, apathetic police chief and a little girl named Eleven who may or may not be able to move things with her mind. From discussing the perils of trying to squeeze into polyester pants to exactly which episode of the first season will have your jaw on the floor, we're more pumped than ever to bingewatch the show this weekend. Popsugar: A few horror/sci-fi TV shows and movies with an '80s vibe have popped up lately, like It Follows and Wayward Pines. What do you think will make Stranger Things stand out from them, »

Mads Mikkelsen Talks 'Doctor Strange' and 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

14 July 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Mikkelsen in a promo photo from NBC's "Hannibal."

Mads Mikkelsen, who crossed over when he played the villain Le Chiffre in Daniel Craig's inaugural James Bond outing, Casino Royale, is about to have a monster year. With mysterious roles in two different blockbusters that serve as the latest entries in the two biggest properties in Hollywood- Marvel and Star Wars- he's about to be seen by a lot of people.

The actor recently sat down with Digital Spy to promote a movie that couldn't be more different from the two titans he's set to appear in- Doctor Strange and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film is called Men And Chicken, and it's a low-budget Danish black comedy. A very different animal, indeed.

During the interview, comparisons are drawn between his experience with Men And Chicken and what it was like to work on Doctor Strange and Rogue One. »

'Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan' review

14 July 2016 12:10 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

I remember it like it was yesterday. Matter of fact, I probably remember it more vividly than I did the actual day before today. Because what I’m speaking of was a pivotal moment for me. It was 1981, and it just happened to be the only family vacation that me and my parents went ever went on. I didn’t have a dysfunctional childhood by any means, my parents just didn’t like going anywhere. They pioneered the concept of the modern staycation long before it was a broadly understood term in our lexicon. We ended up at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and we were staying in an actual old school “Devil’s Reject’s” style hotel.

What I mean is that it was longer than it was high and all the room entrances were on the outside of the building. They also had cable TV. »

Ghostbusters Review: The Best 3D Experience of The Summer

10 July 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After experiencing the grueling Clash of the Titans remake in 3D and slogging through the almost 'too dark to even tell what was going on' Avengers: Age of Ultron in the so-called 'immersive format' at the Arc Light Cinema in Hollywood, which is supposed to be one of the premiere theater destinations in the country, I was ready to give up on 3D altogether, which I know many critics abandoned long ago. But whenever I'm invited to a press screening and given the option, I always choose 3D anyway. The idea of it still appeals to the kid inside me. And my belief is, while I may see the movie again, I'll probably never re-watch it in 3D. I keep expecting to see a movie where 3D isn't just an afterthought slapped onto any given movie to boost ticket sales. Where the director actually uses it as a tool to tell a story. »

DVD Review: Grimsby

5 July 2016 12:52 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ Sacha Baron Cohen has found fame and notoriety playing out our collective prejudices in living, breathing form, in order to make us realise how untenable they are. Borat's social satire worked because of its mockumentary form; even as Baron Cohen played a ridiculous Kazakh journalist, he gained some all-too-true reactions from his interview subjects, showing an America too comfortable with its own bigotry. After Bruno and The Dictator, his next outrageous character is Nobby Grimsby, his new target James Bond and its suggestive/squeamish, middle-class treatment of sexuality. Except he's been cut and pasted into a sub-90 minute Johnny English sequel, starring Mark Strong and directed by the journeyman who brought us 2008's Incredible Hulk and the Clash of the Titans remake.

Happy Birthday Ray Harryhausen – Here are His Ten Best Films

29 June 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Jim Batts, Dana Jung, Sam Moffitt, and Tom Stockman

Special effects legend Ray Harryhausen, whose dazzling and innovative visual effects work on fantasy adventure films such as Jason And The Argonauts  and  The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad  passed away in 2013 at age 92. In 1933, the then-13-year-old Ray Harryhausen saw King Kong at a Hollywood theater and was inspired – not only by Kong, who was clearly not just a man in a gorilla suit, but also by the dinosaurs. He came out of the theatre “stunned and haunted. They looked absolutely lifelike … I wanted to know how it was done.” It was done by using stop-motion animation: jointed models filmed one frame at a time to simulate movement. Harryhausen was to become the prime exponent of the technique and its combination with live action. The influence of Harryhausen on film luminaries like Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Peter Jackson, and »

Can fantasy films escape Lord Of The Rings' shadow?

The world of J.R.R. Tolkien, brought to the screen by Peter Jackson, continues to cast a shadow over fantasy cinema...

One realm to rule them all. One realm to find them, one realm to bring them all and in the darkness bind them, in the land of Middle-earth where the shadows lie.

Now, far be it from me to ever describe Middle-earth as a dark shadow over anything, but for everyone else trying to make a mega-hit fantasy film, the very thought of competing with Peter Jackson’s adaptations of The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit must seem the equivalent of toppling literal evil on Earth.

It seems that any time a big-budget fantasy flick is released, they get sneered at as generic, lacking the richness of detail or story compared to Lord Of The Rings.

But if this sounds like I’m suggesting there »

Gods Of Egypt review

Gerard Butler shouts and transforms into a robot in Alex Proyas’ fantasy Gods Of Egypt. Ryan reviews a screamingly odd film...

Ancient Egypt - a land of pyramids, colossal statues and unconvincing scorpions. Did you know that, in the time of the pharoahs, gods lived among ordinary mortals and could transform into huge, fire-spouting robots? Director Alex ProyasGods Of Egypt may have been demolished by critics when it appeared in the Us earlier this year, but it’s certainly educational.

Proyas previously brought us such dark and moody delights as The Crow and Dark City, but Gods Of Egypt is completely unlike anything he’s made before. It’s big, it’s camp, it’s awash with CGI which varies in quality from shot to shot. In style and tone, it belongs in that same odd category of action fantasy films as Louis Leterrier’s Clash Of The Titans »

Weekend Forecast: 'Ninja Turtles 2' Look to Take Down 'X-Men'

2 June 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

A pair of sequels in X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass led a soft Memorial Day weekend last week and things aren't looking much better this weekend. Paramount is delivering its own sequel this weekend in the form of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows while Warner Bros. targets the romantics among us with Me Before You and Universal's Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, which is merely hoping to keep its head above water. Over the past five years, the weekend following Memorial Day has seen an average drop of 18.7% for the top twelve. At this time, projections are looking at a drop just a bit higher, right around 20%, a percentage that could easily improve should Turtles 2 or last weekend's newcomers outperform expectations. Opening in 4,071 theaters, Paramount is estimating a $35-40 million opening weekend for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. It's an estimate that seems just »

Gods Of Egypt Blu-Ray Review

30 May 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Oddly enough, Alex Proyas’s Gods of Egypt is not a bad idea on paper. There have been plenty of weird, kitschy films about Greek gods and Roman gods, as well as Judeo-Christian stories, but the well of Egyptian deities has (in Western film at least) been left largely untapped. That’s unfortunate, because the Egyptians have a rich and complex mythology. Which is why it’s such a shame that Gods of Egypt, hitting Blu-Ray this week, fails as massively – indeed, epically – as it does.

The plot revolves around thief and pretty boy Bek (Brenton Thwaites), who attends the coronation of Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), the god of the air, taking over godhead duties from his father Osiris (Bryan Brown). But things go wrong when Set (Gerard Butler), the god of the desert, pops up, kills Osiris and blinds Horus, sending him off into the desert to die. A year later, »

Interview: Agyness Deyn on Her Breakthrough in 'Sunset Song', and How Modeling Prepared Her for Film

13 May 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jose here. Agyness Deyn doesn’t have a very long list of screen credits, she played Aphrodite in Clash of the Titans, narrated a Rihanna video, and appeared in Pusher. That will undoubtedly change once directors see her gorgeous work in Terence Davies’ Sunset Song where she plays Chris Guthrie, a Scottish farm girl trying to fend for herself in the years before Wwi. It’s a performance made of composed emotion, endless inner strength, and an otherworldly quality that makes one think of great work by Olivia de Havilland and Ingrid Bergman.

Many people will know Ms. Deyn from her work as a model, back in the mid-aughts there wasn’t an issue of Vogue where she didn’t appear. With her pixie cut, effortless chic and strong personality she brought a “punk/rock” edge to modeling. Since 2012, she’s been focusing her attention on film and Sunset Song is her first leading role. »
