22 September 2014 2:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

‘Real Steel’ Sequel In The Works?

10 September 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director Shawn Levy has revealed that work on a sequel to 2011’s Real Steel has begun in secret. Real Steel starred Hugh Jackman as a washed-up boxer who spends his summer with his estranged son building a battle bot called Atom to compete in a robot boxing tournament. Whilst promoting new movie This Is Where I Leave You, the director shared that he and his leading man Jackman have been trying to create an idea for a second film:

“We have been quietly developing a sequel to Real Steel for three and a half years. We’ve come up with some great scripts but Hugh and I would only make it if the plot feels fresh, but also the character journeys feel fresh, and we’ve found both but never at the same time. It’s ongoing. I know the clock is ticking. That movie, weirdly, for a movie that »

Toronto Film Review: ‘X+Y’

10 September 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

, “X+Y” zeroes in on a young math whiz who only gradually comprehends the basics of establishing relationships with other people. Deconstructionist critics and mainstream moviegoers alike may find it difficult not to reference “Rain Man,” “A Beautiful Mind” and “David and Lisa” while describing the movie to potential ticketbuyers. But even though such comparisons are hardly inapt, director Morgan Matthews’ debut fiction feature — inspired by his acclaimed 2007 documentary “Beautiful Young Minds” — proves potent on its own terms as a satisfying, compelling drama with definite crossover potential on screens of all sizes.

Much like its nonfiction predecessor, “X+Y” focuses on student competitors in the Intl. Mathematics Olympiad (Imo). In concert with scripter James Graham, Matthews has spun off a scenario about a character not unlike one of the more memorable subjects in “Beautiful Young Minds,” a neurodevelopmentally challenged math prodigy named Daniel Lightwing.

In the world according to “X+Y, »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Al Pacino Confirms Martin Scorsese's 'The Irishman' Still in the Works

9 September 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been nearly four years since we've heard anything about Martin Scorsese's mobster drama The Irishman. In that time, the director has delivered Hugo, The Wolf of Wall Street and a forthcoming HBO documentary called The 50-Year Argument. Soon he'll be busy with his drama Silence starring Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield, and some have wondered if Scorsese would ever get around to the film about Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, a reputed criminal responsible for more than 25 mob murders and potentially being involved with the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa. Thankfully, it's still coming. Speaking with The Daily Beast (via The Film Stage), Al Pacino confirmed the film is still happening, but didn't offer any timetable of when production might begin. In addition, he revealed that "Boardwalk Empire" and Win Win star Bobby Cannavale (who will be seen in the remake of Annie this year) will »

X + Y Review [Tiff 2014]

8 September 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are not many films made about kids like Nathan Ellis. Sure, the story of a young social outsider trying to break out of his shell is not a unique one (as I wrote about in my review for fellow Tiff selection Wet Bum), but Nathan is autistic and has a very deliberate way of doing things. For instance, he cannot order chicken balls from the local Chinese restaurant unless the number of balls he gets is a prime number. Besides his picky eating, Nathan gets distracted by noise and has a hard time working in a room with a ticking clock or other students tapping their fingers on a desk loudly. He fears handshakes, is unable to understand the social cues involved with that greeting gesture, and calms himself by saying the Fibonacci sequence out loud.

Few films focus on boys who can be coldly sincere, their personality almost hidden from view. »

If I Stay

4 September 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

If Wetlands looks at teen life without blinkers, If I Stay prefers Hollywood-style, rose-colored glasses. Guess which one finds box-office gold? Based on Gayle Forman’s 2009 Ya bestseller, If I Stay has the virtue of starring Chloe Grace Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In, Hugo), 17, a skilled actress who can make me believe anything. But not this, Chloe, not this. Moretz plays Mia Hall, an Oregon high schooler with a gift for cello, a rocker boyfriend (Jamie Blackley), indulgent parents (Mireille Enos and Joshua Leonard), and an itch to get into Julliard. »

Venice: Thelma Schoonmaker On Working With Martin Scorsese, ‘Silence’ & Preserving Michael Powell’s Legacy

2 September 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Thelma Schoonmaker was at the Venice Film Festival today to accept the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. She was also on the Lido to present a restored version of her late husband Michael Powell’s The Tales Of Hoffman. I sat down with Martin Scorsese‘s longtime Oscar-winning editor for a chat this morning overlooking a raging Adriatic Sea. Our conversation ranged from two of the most important men in her life, to the controversy surrounding The Wolf Of Wall Street, the ways digital editing is changing the business, and getting ready for Scorsese’s passion project Silence.

Schoonmaker, who first edited a Scorsese film with Who’s That Knocking At My Door in 1967, and has cut each of his movies since Raging Bull, also works with the director to see Powell’s films restored and the word spread about the helmer of such classics as The Red Shoes, The Life And Death Of Colonel Blimp »

If I Stay Review

27 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When the talented young actress Chloë Grace Moretz burst onto the scene, truly coming to prominence with her performance as Hit-Girl in the 2010 superhero flick Kick-Ass, she was a breath of fresh air. She may have looked like a sweet, innocent young girl – but subverted the stereotype with an invigorating, energetic, and somewhat unrefined turn, signalling the start of what has since been a flourishing career, which has seen her collaborate with Martin Scorsese in Hugo, and turn to her dark side in the Carrie remake. However her latest endeavour, R.J. Cutler’s If I Stay, is a dramatic step backwards, as she plays the cliched, ‘misunderstood’ teenager with about as much depth as a paddling pool. A character that is everything we had hoped she would never become.

Moretz plays Mia Hall, an introverted high school student, who prefers to play her cello and listen to Beethoven, than go »

Something gets under Eva Green's skin in Penny Dreadful

Showtime’s critically acclaimed horror drama TV series Penny Dreadful stars Josh Hartnett (40 Days and 40 Nights), Timothy Dalton (The Rocketeer) and Eva Green (Perfect Sense).

The show sets out to completely reinvent some of literature’s most famous characters. Icons of terror such as Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul – even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations. Set in the 19th Century, the stories are in the style of the British “penny dreadful” publications of that time period, lurid serial stories appearing in parts over a number of weeks.

Created by three-time Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Logan (Skyfall, Hugo) and co-exec-produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty), the »

Extended UK Trailer for Batman Prequel TV Series Gotham

20 August 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Gotham will air on Channel 5 in the UK, and star Ben McKenzie (he plays the young Detective Jim Gordon in the series) introduces an extended trailer here featuring some great new snippets of footage.

The emphasis is very much on some of iconic villains who will be featured in the show, and we get to see some references to their future villainous alter-ego’s, including The Penguin and The Ridder.

Gotham is an origin story of the great DC Comics super villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. The series follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.

Batman apparently won’t be making an appearance until Gotham ends, but we will spend some time with a young Bruce Wayne as »

Watch: Martin Scorsese on The Films of Rossellini, Cassavetes, Minnelli and More

20 August 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

More than any other American director working today, Martin Scorsese retains perhaps the most encyclopedic set of knowledge when it comes to his cinematic forbearers. Two years ago, Fast Company distilled 85 references made throughout the course of a four hour interview on Hugo, and dubbed it “Martin Scorsese’s Film School.” Flavorpill went ahead and paired the majority of those titles with pre-existing commentary from the filmmaker’s documentaries, A Personal Journey Through American Movies and My Voyage to Italy, to create a comprehensive video essay. Watch above for Scorsese’s insight into everything from Two Weeks in Another Town to Faces, Italian Neo-Realism (Rossellini) to pre-noir gangster films (Walsh), and much more. »
