Over 30 New 'Jurassic World' Photos, Plus 2 New Clips & Lots Of New TV Spots

25 May 2015 7:38 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You can be damned if you do and damned if you don’t and the narrative shifts to whatever convenient place it needs to go. When reports of trouble surfaced about “Fantastic Four” a few weeks back, the general online consensus was, “well this is what happens when you give an inexperienced director [Josh Trank] a big tentpole.” And while that remains to be seen (nobody has watched the actual movie yet), what is clear is that Hollywood is investing in young filmmakers for big blockbusters regardless of their “inexperience.” After the low-budget "Monsters", Gareth Edwards got called up to the big leagues to helm "Godzilla," and indie directors like Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Justin Kurzel and many more are developing their blockbuster-size projects (we did an entire feature about indie directors who could be the next generation of blockbuster filmmakers and you can read that here).

Anne Hathaway's 'Godzilla' Meets 'Lost In Translation' Movie 'Colossal' Sued For Referencing Gareth Edwards' 'Godzilla'

21 May 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Irony is a dish best served with a lawsuit. Voltage Pictures, who have made headlines for their aggressive tactics in suing those who have downloaded their movies illegally, have now been hit with legal actions themselves for ripping off a legendary movie franchise. A couple weeks back it was reported that Anne Hathaway would be starring in "Colossal," the latest film from Nacho Vigalondo ("Timecrimes," "Open Windows," "Extraterrestrial"), which was described as a "Lost In Translation" meets "Godzilla" tale about a New York woman who has just lost her job and her fiancé and heads to Japan upon hearing news of a giant lizard laying waste to Tokyo. It's that latter detail that has "Godzilla" rights owners Toho Co. hot and bothered. They have filed a suit against Voltage for using images from last year's Gareth Edwards' directed Hollywood version of "Godzilla" to try and drum up »

Anne Hathaway’s Cannes Monster Movie ‘Colossal’ Sued by ‘Godzilla’ Creators

19 May 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Toho, the Japanese production company that created “Godzilla,” has filed a lawsuit against Voltage Pictures that alleges the company used copyrighted images of the famous movie monster to sell their new film, “Colossal” starring Anne Hathaway. The lawsuit was filed in California federal court Tuesday and states “Toho Co. Ltd. … brings this lawsuit because defendants are brazenly producing, advertising, and selling an unauthorized Godzilla film of their own.” Toho is suing Voltage for copyright infringement, trademark infringement, trademark dilution, violating the Lanham Act, unfair competition and unjust enrichment. According to the legal documents obtained by TheWrap, Voltage circulated an email to. »

The Sea of Trees | 2015 Cannes Film Festival Review

The Forest for the Trees: Van Sant’s Melodramatic Misfire

Gus Van Sant’s name seems to conjure wildly different reactions depending on how accustomed one is to his varying filmography. Whether you’re a fan or detractor of his period of ‘slow’ films, including 2003’s Palme d’Or winning Elephant, or his mainstream appeal with beloved dramas like 1997’s Good Will Hunting, one can’t argue with a certain amount of dexterity on his part as a filmmaker. But those hoping for a sensational return to any tone in particular are in for a pointedly disappointing time with his latest, The Sea of Trees. Hopelessly melodramatic and embarrassingly affected, it’s a film so emotionally tone deaf it makes Finding Forrester (2000) seem miraculous by comparison. Headlined by a high pedigree cast, awkwardly shuffled about in a revolving charade, the title is a major disappointment from the beloved filmmaker.

Diego Luna Joins 'Star Wars: Rogue One', Ben Mendelsohn to Play Film's Villain

13 May 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Diego Luna has joined Felicity Jones in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One, the Star Wars spinoff to be directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards. Luna will play a co-lead alongside Jones as members of a group of solders who steal the plans for the Death Star. The news comes from Variety that also seems to confirm earlier word that Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler) and Ben Mendelsohn will also star with the latter serving as the film's primary villain. Big shocker there, Mendelsohn and Christoph Waltz ought to star in a documentary on how to get typecast as a villain. The film takes place between Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope and it would stand to assume the mission to steal the plans is successful based on the events of the original Star Wars. Star Wars: Rogue One hits theaters on Dec. »

Early this morning, The New York Times ran an article that detailed the A.C.L.U’s investigation into Hollywood’s hiring practices and their demonstrable prejudices — given the statistics — against female directors.

Here's What a Sequel to 'Minority Report' Looks Like Without Steven Spielberg

12 May 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There's a trend these days to turn old movies into TV shows (Bates Motel, Hannibal) or old shows into movies (The A-Team, 21 Jump Street), but rarely do the new versions have anything to do with the originals. That's not going to be the case with Fox' new Minority Report show, which will be a direct sequel to Steven Spielberg's 2002 movie of the same name. Conceived by Godzilla screenwriter Max Borenstein, the new Minority Report will take place a decade after the first movie ended. PreCrime has been outlawed, which means that the three precogs from the movie are no longer being used to prevent crimes before they happen. It becoming illegal, however, doesn't mean the precogs have stopped receiving visions, and so the show promises to track the life of the...

Fox has finalized its 2015/2016 lineup, ordering to series, a small screen version of the sci-fi movie based on the 1956 Philip K.

Jimi Hendrix Biopic Gets 'Bourne' Director Paul Greengrass

7 May 2015 5:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paul Greengrass is teaming up with Legendary Entertainment to direct a new biopic centering on the life of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix, tentatively titled Experience Hendrix. Both the director and the studio had the chance to make the biopic with or without cooperation from the musician's estate four years ago, but they turned down that opportunity. Now they have full cooperation from the estate, and the biopic will also include his classic songs such as "Foxy Lady" and "Purple Haze." The musician only recorded four albums before he died at the age of 27 in 1970.

Scott Silver (The Fighter, 8 Mile) has come aboard to write the script. Legendary has been developing this project since 2009, with Max Borenstein (Godzilla) originally writing the script. Jimi Hendrix's estate didn't want to cooperate the first time around, because they thought the movie might hurt record sales, which continue to be strong year after year. »

Legendary Pictures and Paul Greengrass moving forward on Jimi Hendrix biopic

7 May 2015 3:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jimi Hendrix is proving popular for the big screen lately. Last year brought with it John Ridley's "Jimi: All Is By My Side" with Spirit Award nominee Andre Benjamin in the starring role. Now comes word that Legendary Pictures will finally move ahead on developing a biopic about the musician with "Captain Phillips" helmer Paul Greengrass set to direct. I say finally because Greengrass and Legendary's Thomas Tull had a shot at making a Hendrix film four years ago, but like Ridley's film, it would have been without the Hendrix estate's cooperation. Now, reportedly, a deal has been struck, and the two parties will set out to produce the definitive cinematic portrait of the rock icon. With estate cooperation comes permission to use all the classics: "Purple Haze," "Voodoo Chile," "Foxy Lady," etc. And perhaps they'll be incorporated in interesting, rather than "greatest hits" ways. After all, "8 Mile" screenwriter »

Joss Whedon, Josh Trank and the pressures on directors

6 May 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Has being the director of a film in a major franchise become a high-stakes gamble? Ryan looks at the pressures faced by modern filmmakers.

The process of making the behemoth that is Avengers: Age Of Ultron has clearly taken its toll on Joss Whedon. In each successive interview with the press, he’s talked with surprising openness about the process of making the superhero sequel and his battles to places an individual stamp on it; this culminated in a recent podcast with Empire, in which he described the “really, really unpleasant” fight to keep certain scenes in the film.

For an established writer and director like Whedon, who’s been working in TV and film since the 90s, taking on a project as huge and loaded with expectation as a Marvel film is evidently punishing, both physically and psychologically. Imagine how difficult it must be, then, to make the jump »
