'Selma' first look: David Oyelowo takes on Martin Luther King in upcoming film

22 August 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A cross, constructed entirely of lightbulbs, shines behind David Oyelowo as he approaches the pulpit of Atlanta’s 145-year-old Wheat Street Baptist Church. It’s a steamy June night, and 500 extras—including U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a key architect of the civil rights movement—eagerly await the British-born actor’s first attempt to preach as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. But just as director Ava DuVernay puts on her headphones and does a last sound check, a freak lightning storm threatens the safety of the crew and forces the production to shut down.

Delays are nothing new in the »

10 Highest Grossing Time Travel Movies

13 August 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Making a movie that revolves around time travel instantly creates paradoxes and often plot holes, but managed intelligently, the onscreen logic can make for fun and dangerous storytelling. This is a list is of the highest grossing movies and franchises that use time travel as a main story element (an example of a movie with time travel not as a main story element is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which would have been #4 had it qualified).

I've cheated a bit by grouping franchises together, allowing me to write about more movies. Out of the 18 movies on the list I’ve seen 17, which might mean I really like movies with time travel. All numbers are worldwide box office grosses adjusted for inflation. Box office revenue numbers are from Box Office Mojo and The Numbers. Bits of trivia are from IMDb and Wikipedia. Inflation data comes via the Us Department of Labor. »

Tom Hardy Shoots Scenes For 'Legend'

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

Tom Hardy looked dapper in a suit and tie on the set of Legend in London on Wednesday.

Tom Hardy Films 'Legend'

In Legend, Hardy plays real life London gangsters the Kray twins – Ronnie and Reggie – who had their heyday during the 50s and 60s. The film, bassed off of John Pearson’s book The Profession of Violence, charts the twins successful in their organized crime empire that began in London’s East End and ends with their fall and eventual imprisonment.

While filming scenes for Legend, Hardy donned a sharp navy blue suit and matching tie with a tie clip, and a crisp white shirt. The actor, who bulked up for the roles of the crime lords, wore his hair slicked back. While filming, Hardy also sports prosthetics to more closely resemble the Krays.

On Tuesday, Hardy was joined on set by costars Christopher Eccleston and David Lewis, »

Aaron Sorkin to Adapt Flash Boys as a Feature

24 June 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures is in negotiations with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin to adapt Michael Lewis' best-selling book Flash Boys. This will be the second book by Lewis that Sorkin will adapt into a screenplay. Moneyball was another book that he worked on from the author. 

The story deals with the "practice of high-frequency trading on Wall Street and how it became a way to rig the system. Lewis' book revolves around a group of men on Wall Street including Sergey Aleynikov, a one-time programmer for Goldman Sachs, and Brad Katsuyama, the founder of Iex, the Investor's Exchange."

Sorkin is one of the most talented screenwriters working today, and this is the kind of movie that is right up his alley. I'm sure he'll have a lot of fun developing it.

The writer recently wrote Sony's untitled Steve Jobs biopic for director Danny Boyle. He's also the writer of David Fincher's The Social Network, »

Aaron Sorkin to Adapt 'The Social Network' Author's 'Flash Boys'

20 June 2014 6:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After winning an Oscar for adapting Michael Lewis' book The Social Network, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has signed on to adapt the author's new work entitled Flash Boys.

The non-fiction book, which was acquired by Sony Pictures in April, follows a group of stock brokers, who discovered that their high-frequency trading could be used to rig the stock market. The group included former Goldman Sachs programmer Sergey Aleynikov and Brad Katsuyama, the founder of Investor's Exchange (Iex). The book was published on March 31, and became an overnight best-seller.

Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing for Sony Pictures. The producers have previously collaborated with Aaron Sorkin on The Social Network, his HBO TV series The Newsroom and their upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, which Danny Boyle is directing.

Michael Lewis also wrote the popular books The Blind Side and Moneyball, which were adapted into hit movies, both of which were nominated for Best Picture, »

Aaron Sorkin in Negotiations to Adapt Flash Boys

20 June 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Aaron Sorkin is in negotiations to adapt Michael Lewis' novel "Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt" for Sony.  This would be the second Lewis book the Oscar-winning screenwriter adapted for the studio, having previously worked on Moneyball (for which he earned an Oscar nomination).  Flash Boys delves into "the practice of high-frequency trading on Wall Street and how it became a way to rig the system."  While Lewis' book centers on one-time Goldman Sachs programmer Sergey Aleynikov, and Investor's Exchange (Iex) founder Brad Katsuyama, among other Wall Street folks, it's unclear how close Sorkin's adaptation would hew.  Hit the jump for more. THR reports that Sorkin is in negotiations to adapt Flash Boys.  Sony acquired the rights to the non-fiction bestseller back in April.  Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing the film through Rudin's first-look deal at the studio.  He's worked with Sorkin before on Moneyball, The Social Network, »

Whoops…Did I Do That?: Top 10 Film Bumblers and Stumblers

7 June 2014 7:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The world of cinema certainly has had its share of sympathetic bumbling and stumbling characters rich in both comedic and tragic layers and anything else in between. Some of these movie misfits are misunderstood and actually more aware then they appear. The combination of being slow-witted, clumsy, awkward, inept, unstable–it all has its entertaining points in the hapless scheme of things. Importantly, these bumbling and stumbling film figureheads generate a kind of loose-minded and in some cases underlying poignancy that resonates so soundly for global moviegoers to observe with embraced enthusiasm.

So let us take a look at a selection of klutzy candidates (both in seriousness and silliness) that inspire us to chuckle and root for in the column Whoops…Did I Do That?: Top 10 Film Bumblers and Stumblers (Note: the listing of the choices below are not in any particular order of preference):
