London Has Fallen Blu-Ray Preview Blows Up Chelsea Bridge | Exclusive

14 June 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a solid theatrical run where it took in $195 million worldwide, from a $60 million budget, London Has Fallen is coming home this week with its release on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand formats today, June 14. In case you didn't get a chance to see this action sequel in theaters, we have an exclusive preview for you to check out before the movie hits Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand formats. This preview takes fans behind-the-scenes of the destructive Chelsea Bridge scene in this sequel.

This preview, courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, features second unit director Steve Griffin, who teases that, since they couldn't actually blow up the real Chelsea Bridge in London, this massive attack scene was filmed by using a huge green screen set at an airfield in Bulgaria during principal photography. We also hear from senior visual effects supervisor Sean Farrow, who reveals that some of the most fascinating conversations during the production involved around deciding which bridges to blow up. He also explains that the production chose Chelsea Bridge because it was a suspension bridge that could be pulled apart piece by piece.

Devastation of a world capital and a revenge plan against an American president fuel the high-octane London Has Fallen, coming to Digital HD on May 31, 2016, and Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on June 14, 2016 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen raises the stakes with non-stop action and suspenseful plot twists. The Blu-ray and Digital HD versions also include exclusive bonus features about the can't-miss thriller.

In London Has Fallen, the stellar cast of Gerard Butler (300), Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story), Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Radha Mitchell (Pitch Black), Sean O'Bryan (Vantage Point), and Morgan Freeman (Lucy) reprises their original roles from Olympus Has Fallen, joined by Alon Moni Aboutboul (The Dark Knight Rises), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen), Charlotte Riley (Edge of Tomorrow), and Waleed F. Zuaiter (Homeland). Babak Najafi directs London Has Fallen.

Is Christopher Nolan Crashing a Vintage WWII Plane for Dunkirk?

8 June 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, we showed you the first set photos from director Christopher Nolan's World War II movie Dunkirk as production got under way in France. This drama is based on the true story of a harrowing military operation to rescue more than 330,000 Allied troops, after they were trapped at the harbor of Dunkirk, France. Today we have a new report which claims that director Christopher Nolan's commitment to practical effects may have cost Warner Bros. a cool $5 million.

Indie Revolver has a new report where their sources claim the studio paid a whopping $5 million to purchase a vintage World War II aircraft for the production. The site's sources claim that Christopher Nolan will outfit this plane with IMAX cameras for some aerial scenes, before actually crashing the plane. The site's sources also claim that Warner Bros. believes Dunkirk could be as big of a hit as the director's 2010 smash hit Inception, »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Hands of Stone’

16 May 2016 6:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Roberto Duran remains the greatest lightweight boxer in history, and one of the most celebrated fighters, period. But unlike such legends of the ring as Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, or Mike Tyson, he never had a very idiosyncratic boxing style. He didn’t dance, or rope-a-dope, or use his fists like a Mack truck. He was a paragon of classic quickness and power, a bruiser who wasted no time going in for the kill.

Hands of Stone,” a Duran biopic that lifts its title from his fists-of-fury nickname, has a tone that very much mirrors Duran’s mode of fighting. Directed by the Venezuelan-born Jonathan Jakubowicz, who also wrote the script, the film punches ahead in a conventional, aggressive, no-frills way. At this point, of course, the bar for boxing films has been set rather staggeringly high. “Raging Bull” turned the pugilistic melodrama into Shakespearean blood opera (it also »

The Furniture: Joy's Emerald City of Home Shopping

9 May 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture" is our weekly series on Production Design. Here's Daniel Walber on Joy, now available on DVD and Bluray

It seems impossible that production designer Judy Becker has only received a single Oscar nomination, if not supremely unfair as well. At the very least, she should have snagged a second nomination for Carol. Her resume includes such diverse triumphs as We Need to Talk About Kevin, Brokeback Mountain, Shame and I’m Not There, as well as a neat early credit as a set dresser on Spike Lee’s Malcolm X. And so it seems totally appropriate that Becker is the first production designer to merit a repeat appearance in 'The Furniture'.

Becker’s most fruitful collaboration has been with David O. Russell. She's worked on every one of his features since The Fighter and she earned her lone Oscar nomination for American Hustle. Her sets for Joy, particularly »

Miranda Richardson and Clancy Brown have joined Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany in Lionsgate’s Boston Marathon bombing movie “Stronger,” with production starting this week in Boston.

Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, while Maslany plays his girlfriend Erin Hurley. Brown (“Hail, Caesar!”) will portray Bauman’s father.

The film is a production of Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label, Mandeville Films, Bold Films and Nine Stories. It’s Gyllenhaal’s first production under his Nine Stories banner.

Inspired by a true story and based on the New York Times bestseller, Gyllenhaal stars as the working-class Boston man whose iconic photo from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing gained worldwide notice.

Bauman was waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line of the marathon when two pressure-cooker bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others. When Bauman awoke the next day after surgeries and realized he could not speak, he asked for »

Bryan Cranston breaks far away from his role as meth magnate Walter White to transform into former Commander-in-Chief Lyndon B. Johnson. Cranston reprises his Tony Award–winning performance as the 36th President of the United States in the new HBO film “All the Way.” “All the Way” follows Johnson’s first year in the White House after President Kennedy’s assassination. Johnson is immediately tasked with passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964 upon entering office. “It ain’t gonna be easy, Dr. King,” Cranston says as Johnson during a phone call to Martin Luther King Jr. (Anthony Mackie) regarding the contentious bill. Jay Roach directs a script from Robert Schenkkan, who adapts his own play. “All the Way” received the Best Play honor from the Tony Awards in 2014. The film features an all-star ensemble including Oscar winner Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) as First Lady Lady Bird Johnson, Bradley Whitford (“Transparent”) as Vice President Hubert Humphrey, »

Relativity Media is emerging from bankruptcy. After filing one of Hollywood's biggest ever bankruptcies last July, the Ryan Kavanaugh-led company has won approval to exit Chapter 11. In February, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Michael Wiles approved a reorganization plan for the film studio that has worked on films like The Fighter, Limitless and Beyond the Lights and the TV show Catfish. At the time, the judge made it conditional on Relativity finalizing paperwork on exit financing and making its Trigger Street deal to get Dana Brunetti on board.

Christian Bale: “I Didn’t Quite Nail It As Batman”

4 March 2016 10:23 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Christian Bale admits he was jealous of Heath Ledger on the set of The Dark Knight. Bale explains how watching Ledger’s amazing performance as the Joker made him feel disappointed in his own work.

 Everyone loves Heath Ledger’s scene-stealing interpretation as Batman’s arch-enemy the Joker in The Dark Knight (2008), and no one was more impressed than the star of the movie. Christian Bale was left feeling inadequate while filming the super hero adventure because he saw Ledger take it to a whole new level and he was disappointed in himself for not fully capturing his character, the way he saw Ledger doing so well with the Joker. Ledger won a posthumous best supporting actor Oscar for his work as the Joker.

 During an interview with Yahoo!Movies, Bale—who won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for The Fighter (2010)—described how watching Ledger on the set made »

"I Was Really Just Devastated On Set": Amy Adams Talks The Difficult Shoot Of David O. Russell's 'American Hustle'

3 March 2016 1:59 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While David O. Russell has entered a much publicized new phase of his career, with "The Fighter," "Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle," and "Joy," marking the transition from his earlier, more eclectic indie pictures to something sturdier, old habits die hard. The director, whose tantrum on the set of "I Heart Huckabees" famously went viral, and who clashed with George Clooney on the set of "Three Kings," still maintains an open atmosphere on set, one that encourages improvisation, and pushes the actors to their limits. However, it's a fine line between inspiration and isolation.

Ryan Reynolds Makes Compelling Arguments for 'Deadpool' Oscars

The polls for this Sunday's 88th annual Academy Awards closed on Tuesday. Leonardo DiCaprio can now breathe easy, there's no more campaigning to be done for his inevitable win. One last-minute Oscars 2016 campaign argued for "Deadpool" to nab some votes. Ryan Reynolds tweeted out a "For Your Consideration" poster which was damn near perfect -- if only he had just done a cleavage push like Melissa Leo for "The Fighter."

Only a few hours left for Oscar voting. Too late for a write-in campaign for an ineligible movie? pic.twitter.com/kR4nrRrULv

Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) February 23, 2016

Granted, "Deadpool" can't win any Oscars because it's not nominated for any, because it just came out last week and the 2016 winners will come from films released last year. But that's boring PC establishment Bs and all the Oscars voters should've just written "Deadpool" anyway! And Ryan should bring both Betty White and »
