Watch a 20-minute behind-the-scenes preview of Gotham

19 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With exactly a month to go before the premiere of Gotham, Fox has released a special 20-minute three-part behind-the-scenes preview of the Batman prequel series entitled ‘The Legend Reborn’, which you can check out below after the official synopsis…

Gotham is the origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (The Mentalist, Rome), this one-hour drama follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the genesis of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. Brave, earnest and eager to prove himself, the newly minted detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is partnered with the brash, but shrewd police legend Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), as the two stumble upon the city’s highest-profile case ever: the murder of local billionaires Thomas and Martha Wayne. »

10 Big Differences Between The Giver Book And Movie

16 August 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There are few books from childhood that permanently shape the minds and hearts of the individuals who read it. When it was published twenty years ago, Lois Lowry.s The Giver inspired an entire generation of readers; the author-turned-grandmother still gets dozens of letters in the mail every day related to the book. With a black and white world that slowly turns into dazzling Technicolor and themes about what makes us human, it.s no wonder that a Giver movie was Jeff Bridges. pet project for over a decade or that heavy hitters, including Meryl Streep and Salt director Phillip Noyce signed on. It.s also easy to see why The Giver might be a tough sell to studios wanting to reach the largest audience possible. The Giver is a difficult story, one about an undemocratic state, but also about ethics and complex issues like eugenics and euthanization. Lowry.s »

Q&A: ‘The Giver’s Lois Lowry And Phillip Noyce On The Give And Take Between Author And Director

15 August 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Outside of the Angelina Jolie action film Salt, all the hits on Australian helmer Phillip Noyce’s resume are book adaptations. That ranges from his breakout hit Dead Calm to Patriot Games, Clear And Present Danger, Sliver, The Bone Collector, Rabbit-Proof Fence, and The Quiet American; he is currently adapting Philip Roth’s American Pastoral. Noyce’s latest book transfer is The Weinstein Company’s The Giver, a Michael Mitnick and Robert B. Weiden-scripted adaptation of Lois Lowry’s Newbery Medal-winning children’s novel that took 21 years to reach the screen. That glacial development pace allowed high action dystopian tomes like The Hunger Games and Divergent to score with young audiences, books that were written much later and likely were influenced by Lowry. Vets Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes are surrounded by young audience pleasing newcomers Brenton Thwaites, Odeya Rush, Cameron Monaghan and Taylor Swift, but »

Review: The Giver

15 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Released in 1993, the 1994 Newbery Medal winner The Giver by Lois Lowry has been one of the most controversial and influential novels of the 1990s. Banned from schools across the nation for being "violent" or "unsuited for younger age groups," this dystopic tale centers around Jonas, a young boy who lives in a literally colorless world of contentment.

Screenwriters Robert B. Weide and Michael Mitnick have adapted this book in the sci-fi thriller film The Giver, directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt, The Patriot Games).

In what at first appears to be an utopian society of "Sameness" with absence of pain and suffering, Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) seems content with his friends and family. He lives with his parents, the dutiful nurturer Father (Alexander Skarsgard) and his more stern and unyielding Mother (Katie Holmes). His classmates Fiona (Odeya Rush) and Asher (Cameron Monaghan) are frequent companions, and prepare to receive their life assignment »

The Giver

15 August 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The film version of The Giver, based on Lois Lowry's Newberry Medal-winning 1993 novel, moves at the speed of syrup. Make that the speed of syrup from a clogged spout. That's no way to carry a philosophical message to young adults. But what is? The current onslaught of movies excreted from dystopian teen fiction would make any Ya yak. So far, The Hunger Games franchise is working. But catch Divergent, The Host, Ender's Game, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and see if you don't hear yourself scream: Make. »

'The Giver' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About the Dystopian Thriller

15 August 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Giver" is the latest dystopian thriller to follow an attractive teen who must fight against the totalitarian authority of misguided adults. And if that sounds like every other post-apocalyptic young adult film ever, keep in mind that at least "The Giver" came out a decade or two before such recent Ya offerings as "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent." Directed by Phillip Noyce (his first feature since 2010's Angelina Jolie thriller "Salt") and starring an impressive cast (producer Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, and a nearly unrecognizable Taylor Swift).

Based on Lois Lowry's best seller, "The Giver" focuses on a utopian community where there's no discrimination, war, pain, or hate but also no love, emotion, art, or joy. The goal is "Sameness." On the day when all 16-year-olds receive their permanent job assignment, Jonas (Aussie newcomer Brenton Thwaites) is selected to inherit the role of Receiver of Memory, »

Warner Bros. Slots American Sniper, Moves Point Break And The Man From U.N.C.L.E

13 August 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week, Warner Bros. dropped a massive bombshell by scheduling nine new DC Comics films in addition to two Lego Movie follow-ups and two ‘WB Event Films’ which may or may not be Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequels. And though this week’s crop of release date announcements isn’t anywhere near as earthshaking, there are still some exciting projects that we now know when to mark our calendars for.

First up, the Clint Eastwood-directed American Sniper has been set for a limited bow on December 25th, 2014, suggesting that the studio believes in the drama’s Oscar chances. It stars Bradley Cooper as decorated marksman Chris Kyle, whose memoir American Sniper: The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In U.S. Military History was adapted by Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia). The film will follow that limited release by going wide on January 16th next year. »

Film Review: ‘The Giver’

11 August 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sameness, the conformist plague that afflicts the futuristic citizens of Lois Lowry’s celebrated and scorned Ya novel, “The Giver,” might also be the name given to what ails the movie adaptation — the latest in a seemingly endless line of teen-centric dystopian fantasies that have become all but indistinguishable from one another. A longtime passion project for producer/star Jeff Bridges, “The Giver” reaches the screen in a version that captures the essence of Lowry’s affecting allegory but little of its mythic pull — a recipe likely to disappoint fans while leaving others to wonder what all the fuss was about. Any hopes by co-producers the Weinstein Co. and Walden Media that they might have the next “Hunger Games” (or even “Divergent”) on their hands look to be dashed by lackluster late-summer box office.

Originally published in 1993 (six years before “The Matrix”), Lowry’s novel was itself a patchwork of ideas borrowed from Aldous Huxley, »

6 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This morning brought our first look at a bearded Ewan McGregor in the crime drama Son of a Gun, and now the cast for his next film is shaping up around him with Jennifer Connelly and Dakota Fanning landing roles. For those who don't know, McGregor has been slated to lead the long-gestating Ameircan Pastoral, based on the book written by author Phillip Roth, which will be directed by Phillip Noyce (Salt). McGregor is playing Seymour "Swede" Levov, a blonde Jewish businessman living in New Jersey, whose regular life is disturbed by the political upheaval of the '60s under President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Jennifer Connelly Joins ‘American Pastoral’

6 August 2014 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Almost a decade after she was set to star in the same project, Jennifer Connelly has signed up to join Ewan McGregor for American Pastoral.

The film, an adaptation of the novel by Philip Roth, follows the story of Seymour “Swede” Levov (McGregor), a successful businessman who is living a normal life with his former beauty queen wife Dawn (Connelly) and daughter Meredith, but their lives change dramatically when their daughter commits an act of terrorism in protest of the Vietnam war. Patriot Games and Salt director Phillip Noyce is set to direct, while John Romano penned the script.

As previously mentioned, this is apparently the second time Noyce has tried to get the project up and running, and he originally wanted Connelly and Paul Bettany to play Swede and Dawn Levov with Evan Rachel-Wood playing their daughter. We wonder who Noyce has planned now?

Why I'm Not Seeing "Lucy"

30 July 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"Lucy" will be discussed soon on the podcast but at least one member of Scarjo-loving Tfe refuses to see it. Here's Matthew Eng to tell you why. - Editor

I don't care if Lucy is every bit the gloriously silly and shamelessly outré action fireworks show that gung-ho summer audiences have made into a "surprise hit." I care even less that Luc Besson has managed to curb his own gonzo cheese-fest tendencies to a running time of less than 90 minutes, compared to the ceaselessly spinning tops and chiseled self-mythologizing of every Christopher Nolan movie post-Insomnia. And, though it's been tempting, I finally don't care that Besson and Co. have seemingly put the newly-rejuvenated Scarlett Johansson (so good in Under the Skin; so great in Don Jon) on a pedestal of full-out Film Goddess proportions, in a genre where movies in which women are front and center and not merely »
