Der Bunker Review [Fantastic Fest 2015]

26 September 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s hard for a mother to remain unemotional when she watches her baby leave the proverbial coop, but Der Bunker is what happens when those feelings manifest into a hostage scenario of sorts. It’s your atypical twisted fairytale about a boy, locked away from the world without any sense of maturation, but that’s only where we begin. Der Bunker then delves into absolute insanity by introducing the likes of a festering wound that oversees the homemade prison like a God, primitive punishments, and questionable breastfeeding practices – a line of brilliance that German filmmaker Nikias Chryssos dances upon with unimaginable ferocity.

Pit Bukowski plays a young academic (referred to as “Student”), who seeks quiet refuge so he can advance the realms of science with his new Higgs particle theory (science-y stuff). Upon entering his newly rented room, the student meets a family who is as frugal as they are strange. »

Watch: 'Magic Mike' Meets 'Mary Poppins' and 'Risky Business' in Epic Movie Dance Mashup

16 September 2015 12:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Watch: Passion is Pitted Against the Hays Code in Hitchcock Kissing Supercut Call your loved ones and hide your children, for even fictional characters are not safe from the unassailable beat of "Uptown Funk." At least, that's according to What's the Mashup, who set the song of the year to 100 famous movie dance scenes. In the five minute video, cinematic history is rewritten as everyone from Charlie Chaplin to Tom Cruise in "Risky Business" to Tom Cruise in "Tropic Thunder" finds themselves mysteriously overtaken by "Uptown Funk." The mashup is an excellent catalogue of cinema's best boogies, but it also raises some questions; namely, how does every scene sync up so well with "Uptown Funk?" Is "Uptown Funk" the universal connective thread? Will the future be a choice between moving to Mars and moving to Bruno Mars? "Uptown Funk": friend or foe? Watch the video above and decide for. »

Weekend Report -'Compton' Wins 'War Room' Rumble

29 August 2015 8:28 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

With $13.2M in domestic box office Universal's Straight Outta Compton held off the upstart War Room to claim the #1 position on the charts for the third weekend in a row. War Room, which beat Compton in theaters on Friday, made $11M with a robust $9,692 per screen average. The top of the heap was still a pretty low heap, however, as the top 12 made $68.8M, off 22% from last year's $88.2M, which was a weak weekend itself. That $68.8M also gives this frame the dubious distinction of being the lowest grossing weekend of the year, 12% lower than March 6 - 8th's $78.3M. The newcomers that helped achieve that feat included No Escape, the Owen Wilson/Pierce Brosnan military coup flick, which the Weinsteins state came in just a little under their $9M estimate with $8.3M. On 2,470 screens that $3,355 psa is better than the $2,850 that last year's late-August Pierce Brosnan movie offering, The November Man, »

Michael B. Jordan in talks for comic book adaptation Blood Brothers

29 August 2015 8:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It doesn’t look like the failure of Fantastic Four has put Michael B. Jordan off comic book movies, with The Wrap reporting that the actor is in talks to star in Blood Brothers, based upon the Dark Horse vampire title.

The action comedy is described as “a buddy picture involving two party-loving vampires/best friends who team up to take on a villain obsessed with the apocalypse and destroying humanity.”

The comic is written by Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller, and was based on an original screenplay by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder).

From Dusk Till Dawn: Season Two Premieres 8/25; Austin Mayor Makes It “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”

24 August 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last year, we saw the debut of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, which brought the Tarantino-penned/Robert Rodriguez-directed film to the small screen, in a very different approach. It was quite the interesting series, taking turns that were very unexpected and different than the film, which set the TV series on its own path. Now with the August 25th premiere of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Season Two set to make its debut, Austin TX mayor Steve Adler has made August 25th “From Dusk Till Dawn Day”, in a celebration held at Troublemaker studios.

Rodriguez had the following to say: “Austin is my home and I’m honored to have collaborated with the Austin creative community all these years making movies and television for the world to see. I’m so proud that From Dusk till Dawn is Austin made and that we can celebrate this day with the community. »

Box Office: ‘Straight Outta Compton’ to Dominate Again With an Estimated $26 Million

21 August 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Straight Outta Compton” will again dominate the domestic box office this weekend with early estimates Friday showing a sturdy $26 million at 3,025 locations for its second frame.

If the estimates hold, Universal/Legendary’s N.W.A biopic looks likely to take in double the closest competition — Focus/Gramercy’s launch of horror sequel “Sinister 2” with about $13.3 million at 2,766 theaters.

Paramount’s fourth weekend of  “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation” should follow with about $12 million at 3,442 theaters. That should top a pair of spy pic openings, with Fox’s “Hitman: Agent 47” set to take around $8 million at 3,100 sites and Lionsgate’s “American Ultra” with $6 million at 2,778 locations.

Yet another spy movie — Warner’s second weekend of “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” — should finish ahead of “American Ultra” with around $7 million.

“Straight Outta Compton” will decline about 57% after a stunning overperformance in its opening weekend with $60.2 million, then took in another $25 million during Monday-Thursday period. »

Weekend Report -'Compton' Another Universal Smash

15 August 2015 8:39 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Universal is estimating that Straight Outta Compton made $56M in 2,757 theaters, a remarkable $20,345 per screen average. Compton easily bested the other wide release, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., which is under-performing with an estimated $13.5M. The Top 12, at $133.6M, is up 4% from last year when The Expendables 3 shocked many by opening in 4th place with $15.9M, beaten not only by holdovers Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy but by the other newcomer to the schedule, Let's Be Cops, which opened to $17.8M. If Compton ends up with actuals of $56M that would make it the sixth best August opening of all time, coming in ahead of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes with $54M but behind Signs with $60M in 2002. The well-reviewed bio-pic of the rap group N.W.A., was produced, along with others, by original band members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, as well as by their director, »

Tom Cruise, actor, filmmaker and professional stunt man

10 August 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tom Cruise has come a very long way since his screen debut in Franc Zeffirelli’s Endless Love (1981). Thirty six movies and a whole lot of stardom later and he’s still the biggest movie star on the planet. He is perhaps, also the biggest film star in movie history. You’d be hard pushed to offer up any other actor that’s sustained that level of popularity and box office pull for that long. There is a good reason for this too. Cruise polarises opinion of course and there are those that would see his downfall, but in large part that’s due to all things that have little if nothing to do with Tom Cruise the filmmaker.

Being Tom Cruise must take a special kind of energy. So special in fact that he has sustained that level of dash for nigh on thirty years without letting up. And if Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, »

10 Essential Tom Cruise Movies

7 August 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Like most talented performers who’ve doubled as quintessential movie stars, Tom Cruise doesn’t always get the chance to demonstrate that he can actually act. There’s often just too much Tom Cruise in the way for people to notice, especially when he lets his erratic personal life take center stage. Putting together an “essential” list for such an actor is a bit of a tightrope act, walking the line between crowd pleasing star turns and performances of real substance. That said, here are ten Tom Cruise films that are not to be missed:

Risky Business (1983) – The early 80s were awash in teen sex comedies, most of which have justifiably faded from memory. Then there’s Risky Business, which not only rose above the pack, but made an indelible mark on pop culture history. It wasn’t Tom Cruise’s first movie, but it might as well have been: »

Mr. Robinson Review – TV NBC

4 August 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Mr. Robinson isn’t a show for everyone, which is largely a function of the fact that Welcome Back, Kotter wasn’t for everyone, and owed a lot of the success it had to limited alternatives.

Don’t get me wrong, Welcome Back, Kotter was not only a great show, but it managed a surprising amount of influence on the landscape of television for decades… it just wasn’t for everyone.

Mr. Robinson stars Craig Robinson as a part-time substitute/part-time singer who runs into an old flame and hopes to rekindle things. When he learns that she now teaches at their old High School, he takes the first chance he gets to substitute there.

Mr. Robinson is laid-back almost to a fault… well, probably to a fault. He quickly hints that he wasn’t very serious about school, and hasn’t been very serious about anything since, but he »

Biggest Mashup Ever? Watch 280 Movies Come Together to Sing "Uptown Funk"

3 August 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Is this possibly the biggest, most epic mashup ever? Watch and judge for yourself. YouTube's Dondrapersayswhat spent three months putting together a version of Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" that is sung by 280 movies. You read that number right. 280 movies coming together to perform a song that has the lyric: "smoother than a fresh jar of Skippy." And it's amazing. Personally, our favorite part is the Spaceballs-Tropic Thunder combo of "too hot, hot damn" followed closely by the dance breaks courtesy of Back to the Future, Airplane! and Napoleon Dynamite. The Internet can be a wonderful place sometimes, if we forget that crap like this happens on it. However, we did not like »
