New featurette for The Equalizer focusses on Chloe Grace Moretz

24 September 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While the promotional campaign for The Equalizer has focussed firmly on Denzel Washington’s McCall, with a couple of days to go until the film’s release a new featurette has arrived online which switches the attention to Chloe Grace Moretz’s character Teri, who finds herself needing help from the former black ops agent; check it out below…

In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston.  When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened. If someone has a problem, the odds are stacked against them, and they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help.  He is The Equalizer. »

"Bond 24" Gets A New Cinematographer

16 September 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though it got great notices, without a doubt the most universally acclaimed element of the Sam Mendes-directed 2012 James Bond film "Skyfall" was that of the visual work and compositions of cinematographer Roger Deakins.

Sadly Mendes couldn't get Deakins back for the upcoming "Skyfall" due to his commitment to the Coens' upcoming "Hail, Caesar". It's a fair enough scheduling conflict though, after all Deakins' work on "Skyfall" prevented him from working on the Coens' "Inside Llewyn Davis".

Despite Deakins' departure, it seems Mendes has settled on a superb replacement. In Contention reports that Hoyte van Hoytema has scored the gig.

The Dutch-Swedish cinematographer first came to notice for the original "Let the Right One In" and has since done stellar work on the likes of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy," "The Fighter," "Her" and Christopher Nolan's upcoming sci-fi epic "Interstellar".

The site also says, though this is unconfirmed, that Bond 24 »

Coast Guard Drama 'The Finest Hours' Casts Ben Foster

15 September 2014 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Foster has signed on to star alongside Chris Pine, Casey Affleck and Holliday Grainger in Disney's The Finest Hours.

The plot is based on the true story of a 1952 Coast Guard rescue mission, following one of the worst storms ever to hit the East Coast, which literally ripped an oil tanker in half. Facing sub-zero temperatures and waves as high as 70 feet, four Coast Guard members set off in a lifeboat to rescue over 30 crew members who were stranded in the sinking vessel. The mission is still considered to be the greatest 'small boat rescue" in Coast Guard history. No details were given for Ben Foster's character.

Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) is directing from a script by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson (The Fighter), which was adapted from the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias. Production is currently under way.

Toronto Spotlight: Relativity’s Tucker Tooley On Launching Faith-Based Label And Playing Niche Game

10 September 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley at Relativity Media have been through different manifestations through the years that involved grand enterprises like slate financing half of the movies in Hollywood at one time, and plotting an Ipo in the near future. The story of this festival has been the number of upstart companies that bought films as they re-brand themselves into indie distribution players. They include the soon-to-be-renamed Millennium buying Madame Bovary, EuropaCorp buying Big Game for its new domestic distribution pipeline Red, and Rlj/Image acquiring the Thomas McCarthy-directed Adam Sandler comedy The Cobbler.

Relativity has also been honing its own identity, and it made the first two deals of the festival, buying the completed picture The Woman in Black 2, and Kidnap, a thriller that Halle Berry will star in. Relativity chased the Chris Rock film Top Five and premiered two films here, Beyond The Lights and Hector And The Search For Happiness. »

Kyle Gallner, best known for his parts in the Nightmare on Elm Street redo and in Jennifer’s Body, will take on the pivotal part of the rescue-boat’s engineman, “who feels like he has a lot to prove on the mission to save the lives of dozens of men clinging to life in the waters of the Atlantic.”

Lily James & Douglas Booth Swallow Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

5 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Update: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just won't die, and hopefully the new cast will give it the breath of life it needs to make the parody film work. Lily Collins is now out, but Lily James (the new Cinderella) is in. Other new cast members include Sam Riley (Maleficent), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows), Douglas Booth (Romeo & Juliet) as Mr. Darcy's friend Bingley and Emma Greenwell ("Shameless") as Bingley's sister, and Jack Huston (Kill Your Darlings) as the handsome Lt. Wickham. It hasn't been clarified if Riley is playing Mr. Darcy or if that role has yet to be cast.

May 2, 2013: Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror) will star in Pride, Prejudice and Zombies and, in doing so, brings the project back from grave. Burr Steers (17 Again) will direct, which - if you're counting - makes the project's the fifth director.

Earlier this month, we got a glimpse at Amy Adams in the upcoming Tim Burton film, Big Eyes, and it struck us just how different she looks from film to film. Her character in American Hustle, for example, is oozing sex appeal, while in other films, like Miss Pettigrew Lives For a Day and Enchanted, she's simply adorable. And in still other films like The Fighter and Her, she is, for lack of a better word, kind of a mess. Don't believe us? Scroll down to see some of her most notable characters and how much she changed to turn into each one. »
