Telluride Film Review: ‘Escobar: Paradise Lost’

31 August 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A Canadian surfer finds himself in the deadliest closeout of his life — on dry land — in “Escobar: Paradise Lost,” which imagines that downfall of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (played by Benicio Del Toro) as seen through the eyes of a naive acolyte drawn into his web. The directorial debut of veteran Italian actor Andrea di Stefano (“The Prince of Homburg,” “Eat Pray Love”), “Escobar” offers and Di Stefano’s assured, muscular helming. Pickled up during production by Weinstein Co. subsidiary Radius, this smarter-than-average genre pic (scheduled for a Nov. 26 release) could prove a robust performer in niche theatrical and VOD play, especially if it connects with the large and underserved Latino moviegoing crowd.

It’s fitting that Di Stefano took pause to note the presence of Francis Coppola in the audience for the film’s Telluride world premiere, since one needn’t look too hard to see the lipstick »

'Ninja Turtles,' 'Guardians' Crush Weak 'Expendables'

17 August 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy held on to the top two spots at the box office this weekend, handily defeating the disappointing Expendables 3.The Top 12 earned an estimated $128.8 million this weekend, which is up six percent from the same frame last year. This August remains on track to be the biggest ever at the domestic box office with around $1 billion.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fell 57 percent to an estimated $28.4 million. The movie avoided the 60-percent-plus drop of many of Summer 2014's blockbusters, which is a solid win considering the poor reviews and mixed word-of-mouth. Turtles has so far earned $117.6 million, and will pass G.I. Joe: Retaliation ($122.5 million) in the next few days.In its third weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy eased 41 percent to $24.7 million. On Saturday, it eclipsed Thor: The Dark World's domestic total; with $222.3 million in the bank already, Guardians is going to have »

Film Review: ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness’

16 August 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Happiness means steering clear of “Hector and the Search for Happiness.” A supremely irritating marriage of picture-postcard exoticism and motivational uplift, this misguided comedy-drama tells the story of a British therapist who upends his comfortable lifestyle and travels the world looking for the secret to inner joy — like an “Eat Pray Love” remake for men with too much time, money and existential ennui on their hands. Trite, flat-footed, culturally insensitive, and sagging under the weight of more than 25 credited producers, Peter Chelsom’s film will need every ounce of charm and cachet it can wring from star Simon Pegg to achieve box office traction. Following an Aug. 15 U.K. release (in a version that runs six minutes longer, with negligible differences) and a North American launch at Toronto, it begins a Stateside platform release Sept. 19 through Relativity Media.

Attempting to reproduce the simple, childlike prose style of Francois Lelord’s popular source novel, »

Weekend Report: 'Turtle' Power

10 August 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Ninja Turtles fans old and young showed up at the movies this weekend, driving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to one of the biggest August openings ever.Meanwhile, Guardians of the Galaxy scored the highest second weekend of the Summer so far.The Top 12 earned $174.2 million this weekend, which is up 22 percent from the same frame last year. This August remains on track to be the biggest ever, and could be the first to pass $1 billion.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ruled the box office with $65.6 million this weekend. That ranks fourth all-time in the month of August. It's noticeably higher than G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra ($54.7 million), though 3D premiums and ticket price inflation likely account for most of that gap. The movie also made more in one weekend than 2007 animated Turtles movie Tmnt earned in its entire run.This strong opening can be attributed primarily to the power of the Ninja Turtles brand. »

Weekend Report (cont.): 'Hundred-Foot Journey,' 'Step Up' and Around-the-World Roundup

10 August 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Report"The Hundred-Foot Journey opened in fourth place with $11 million. That's a bit higher than May's Million Dollar Arm; unfortunately, it paled in comparison to similar August releases like Eat Pray Love ($23.1 million) and Julie & Julia ($20 million). With strong word-of-mouth and an audience that skews much older (69 percent over the age of 35), this should hold up well: a total close to $40 million is possible.Rounding out the Top Five, Lucy fell 48 percent to $9.5 million. To date, the Scarlett Johansson/Luc Besson thriller has grossed $97.5 million, and will pass $100 million sometime this week.Step Up All In tanked with $6.5 million this weekend. That's down 45 percent from the previous installment, which was already the lowest-grossing outing in the franchise. Even with solid international returns, it would be surprising if a sixth Step Up got a theatrical release here in the U.S.Lionsgate/Summit has released six movies at over 2,000 locations this year. »

'Ninja Turtles' Shreds Competition on Friday

9 August 2014 9:20 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dominated the box office on Friday with an impressive $25.6 million haul.Turtles opened noticeably higher than G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, which took in $22.2 million on essentially the same day back in 2009. Among Summer 2014 releases, Turtles is slightly above 22 Jump Street ($25.1 million) and Maleficent ($24.3 million).Opening weekends have been very front-loaded this Summer, and reviews and word-of-mouth aren't particularly good for Turtles. Still, it does have a ton of appeal with younger audiences, which tends to help boost Saturday/Sunday returns. By Sunday, Turtles will likely have earned anywhere from $62 to $68 million.Guardians of the Galaxy plummeted 67 percent to $12.3 million. That drop is identical to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which fell 67 and 68 percent, respectively. This suggests that the strong reviews and word-of-mouth didn't give Guardians much of a bump. For the three-day weekend, the movie should wind up around $41 million. »

‘Hundred-Foot Journey’ Producer Talks Food, Family and France

8 August 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What ingredients go into a movie that’s part foodie pic and part heartwarming ode to family? A dash of Steven Spielberg, a soupcon of Oprah Winfrey, and a heaping helping of actors — including Helen Mirren and Om Puri. Stirring the batter are director Lasse Hallstrom, who last lovingly shot French pastries in “Chocolat,” and first-time feature producer Juliet Blake, who, up to now, has been more accustomed to working with crocodiles and Muppets.

A producer at National Geographic who was formerly president of Jim Henson Television, Blake hadn’t ever produced a theatrical feature when she came across the novel “Hundred-Foot Journey” when it was still in galleys and was inspired to option it. The 2010 Richard Morais novel about the culinary rivalry between a staid French restaurant and a boisterous Indian establishment across the road was inspired by the author’s friendship with the late producer Ismail Merchant, an accomplished chef and cookbook author. »

Forecast: Will 'Ninja Turtles' Take Down 'Guardians' This Weekend?

7 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Friday Am Update: Playing at 2,651 locations, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earned an estimated $4.6 million from late Thursday shows. Among Summer 2014 releases, that's ahead of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ($4.1 million), Maleficent ($4 million) and Lucy ($2.75 million).While those aren't all apples-to-apples comparisons*Apes opened at 10 p.m., while Turtles started at 7 p.m.*it still suggests that the movie will have no problem earning over $40 million this weekend (Paramount is now expecting mid-to-high $40 millions).Meanwhile, Into The Storm opened to $800,000.Forecast: On what should be another busy August weekend, the latest big-screen version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will attempt to take first place ahead of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.That could be easier said than done. Marvel's last three movies have all dropped between 56 and 58 percent in their second weekends, and there's little reason to expect Guardians will have a steeper decline than that.

Box Office: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Battles ‘Guardians’ for Top Spot in Mid-$40 Millions

6 August 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tornadoes and turtles and space cowboys careen into each other at the multiplexes this weekend as studios looking to wring the last juices out of a parched summer flood the box office with four new wide releases.

The big question mark isn’t which of the new releases will win, it’s how much gas “Guardians of the Galaxy” has left after it dazzled the industry with a $94.3 million debut last week. If enough Marvel fans waited to catch the adventure film until its sophomore weekend in theaters or enjoyed the picture so much they’re going back for seconds, it could spell trouble for Paramount Pictures’ reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

The film about the karate-trained amphibians may draw enough of a young crowd thanks to its relaunched Nickelodeon small-screen cartoon to be able to thrive in a “Guardians”-dominated world, but it also needs teenagers and younger males to show up. »

Watch: New U.S. Trailer For 'Hector And The Search for Happiness' Starring Simon Pegg And Playing Tiff

23 July 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Outside his collaborations with Edgar Wright and his stints in the franchise worlds of “Star Trek” and “Mission: Impossible,” Simon Pegg has admirably found the time to lead another movie here or there. This year finds the English actor doing his attempt at the feel good movie of the year in the adaptation of “Hector and the Search for Happiness” and the first U.S. trailer has arrived online to inspire you spend some money. Following the two previous U.K. trailers, this new trailer doesn’t break any new ground or have much in the way of new footage. Instead it doubles down on the middle-aged malaise angle and the promise of a feel good message. Think of something along the lines of “Eat Pray Love” meets “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and you wouldn’t be too far off the mark of what this trailer promises. If nothing else, »

Watch: First Teaser Trailer for 'Paradise Lost' with Benicio Del Toro

15 July 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I need to trust everyone near me, Nick." Ohh this is looking good already. An early promo teaser trailer has debuted for Andrea Di Stefano's Paradise Lost, starring Benicio Del Toro as infamous drug lord Pablo Escobar of Colombia. The story involves a surfer, played by the wide-eyed Josh Hutcherson, visiting his brother in Colombia who discovers that his uncle is actually Escobar. Things get a bit tricky as he falls for a local Colombian girl. This looks like another slimy drug cartel movie that will make for edge-of-your-seat cinematic entertainment, but is there more to it? The teaser is only 30 seconds but gives us a solid first look. Here's the very first teaser trailer for Andrea Di Stefano's Paradise Lost, found via The Film Stage: Paradise Lost marks the feature directorial and writing debut of actor Andrea di Stefano (Nine, Eat Pray Love).

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has invited 271 individuals to become members, with the list reflecting the org’s determination to bring more diversity to its ranks.

Every year, the list of invitations includes several recent Oscar nominees.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

Alison Brie Circling How To Be Single

20 June 2014 4:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

New Line is developing a comedy movie – How To Be Single – based on the popular novel by Liz Tuccillo, and Community star Alison Brie is in talks to join the cast, with Christian Ditter (Vicky And The Treasure Of The Gods) in the director’s chair.

The source story sees single New Yorker – Julie Jenson – take off around the world after a particularly terrible night out with her friends. Seeking to find an alternative approach to singledom, she travels across continents – seeing the world, falling in love and getting heartbroken. Along the way, she discovers things that had hitherto eluded her while, back in New York, her friends face life in the big city – with all the trials and tribulations that entails.

So, Sex And The City meets Eat Pray Love, then? It sure looks like it at first glance. Tuccillo was formerly an executive story editor on that award-winning HBO show, »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: July 22, 2014

Price: DVD $19.97, Blu-ray $24.99

Studio: HBO/Warner

Mark Ruffalo (l.) and Taylor Kitsch in The Normal Heart.

When writer Larry Kramer hosted a gathering of gay men at his home in 1981 to discuss the “gay cancer” that was plaguing their community, he effectively launched a series of events that would change the face of the Gay Rights Movement and American activism. In 1985, he immortalized the events in the groundbreaking drama The Normal Heart, which was later revived on Broadway in 2011, garnering five Tony Award nominations. Three decades after its Off Broadway debut, The Normal Heart arrives as an HBO film starring Mark Ruffalo (The Kids Are All Right) and Julia Roberts (Eat Pray Love).

Adapted for the screen by Kramer and directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story), The Normal Heart tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s. »

This Is the 'Midnight Cowboy' Legacy, From A to Z

23 May 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a shock to go back and watch "Midnight Cowboy" 45 years after its debut (on May 25, 1969) and see how raw and otherworldly it looks. After all, the X-rated Best Picture Oscar-winner has been so thoroughly assimilated into American pop culture that even kiddie entertainments like the Muppets have copied from it.

The tale of the unlikely friendship between naïve Texas gigolo Joe Buck (Jon Voight) and frail Bronx con man Enrico "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), "Midnight Cowboy" was initially considered so risqué that it's the only X-rated movie ever to win the Academy's top prize (though after it won, the ratings board reconsidered and gave the film an R). Still, the film featured two lead performances and a few individual scenes that were so iconic that homages (and parodies) have popped up virtually everywhere. (Most often imitated is the scene where Ratso, limping across a busy Manhattan street, is nearly »

Helen Mirren Cooks in the First Trailer for 'The Hundred-Foot Journey' (Video)

13 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Dame Helen Mirren is cool as a cucumber as a fancy French restaurant owner named Madame Mallory in "The Hundred-Foot Journey." Her Michelin-approved restaurant and her uptight life get a shake-up when an Indian family moves into the neighborhood and starts their own restaurant... a hundred feet away.

The patriarch of the Kadam family, played by Om Puri, is certainly game for a grand battle between Madame Mallory's Le Saule Pleureur; he can dish it out as well as he can take it. His son Hassan (Manish Dayal) is a chef in the great family tradition, but his interest in combining the two cuisines is piqued by his new neighbors. Oh, and Madame Mallory's delicious sous chef Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon). It looks quite charmant, n'est ce pas?

"The Hundred-Foot Journey" has quite a filmmaking team behind it. Lasse Hallström, who is no stranger to sexy food onscreen a la "Chocolat, »
