Album review: Sia shines brightly on '1000 Forms of Fear'

7 July 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

  Sia has had more success as a guest on other artists' records-- such as David Guetta’s “Titanium” and Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones” or during her stint with Zero 7 on tunes like “Destiny” --than as a solo artist, but with “Chandelier,” the first single from “1000 Forms of Fear,” out tomorrow (8), the Australian singer/songwriter is finally breaking out as a pop star on her own. “Chandelier” reached the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100, in large part driven by its compelling video featuring 11-year old dancer Maddie Ziegler. Though Sia has had several strong songs on her previous albums, “Chandelier” is her first bona-fide hit as a solo artist. The good news is there’s plenty more on “Fear,” produced by Greg Kurstin, to continue that path, even if there is nothing that’s quite as striking as “Chandelier,” a tune that sounds similar to Rihanna’s “Diamonds”—a »

Sia releases lush new pop song 'Big Girls Cry'

25 June 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If Sia's "Chandelier" made you feel adventurous, "Big Girls Cry" may bring you down from the ceiling. The chart-busting songwriter has released another new track from her solo album "1000 Forms of Fear," and it's a little more tame, a little more mid-tempo and a little more heartbroken. I'm gonna let this one sit for a little longer, but it does empower me feel Ok about crying during particularly poignant Christmas commercials. "1000 Forms of Fear" is out on July 8 and was produced by Greg Kurstin, who was behind one of the few songs with any life to it on Lana Del Rey's No. 1 album "Ultraviolence." Listen to another Sia song, "Eye of the Needle" here. And, no, Sia's still not showing her face in any of her promos. Lena Dunham does some of that for her. What do you think of the track? Here is the tracklist for "1000 Forms of »

Movie Review: Edge of Tomorrow

6 June 2014 10:09 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The film Edge of Tomorrow is a sci-fi actioner that stacks up pretty well as a blockbuster. All the bells and whistles are there for your enjoyment – explosions, aliens, underdog hero who happens to be a human with a great smile, and Tom Cruise is on board too!

The film was directed by Doug Liman who directed The Bourne Identity (2002), Mr. And Mrs. Smith (2005), and Jumper (2008). He is used to getting pretty actors all roughed up and endangered. The screenwriters of Edge of Tomorrow are Christopher McQuarrie, Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth. McQuarrie wrote The Usual Suspects (1995) and two other Cruise vehicles: Valkyrie (2008) and Jack Reacher (2012). The Butterworth brothers have a handful of minor credits and both worked with Liman on Fair Game (2010). The original story is from All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

The film opens with quick cuts of fictional BBC newscasts covering an alien invasion, »

'Edge of Tomorrow' Review: Should You See the Tom Cruise Blockbuster?

6 June 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

As you've probably heard, "Edge of Tomorrow" has been blowing critics' minds. It's easily one of the most fun films of this summer blockbuster season. This latest sci-fi/action/whizbang movie to star Tom Cruise has a ton going for it -- plenty of action, great effects, a clever storyline, and committed performances from the leads, along with assured orchestration of all these elements from a well-regarded director.

But, wait, I hate Tom Cruise!

First of all, you shouldn't hate the guy. Beyond the lunatic antics on talk shows, there's not a performer out there who seems more committed to doing whatever it takes to give wide audiences a fun experience at the cinema. As a film nerd I can applaud his work with Kubrick in "Eyes Wide Shut," but at the same time I can celebrate his more visceral thrills brought out via a slew of "Mission Impossible" films, »

Edge Of Tomorrow – The Review

5 June 2014 3:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

What to do? Can we survive? The world is under attack from vicious, unstoppable alien forces, it must be…Summertime at the multiplex! This looks like a job for…Tom Cruise! Yes, Tom Cruise, the all-American boy (for you budding archeologists, that’s a reference to the once-popular radio adventure series, Jack Armstrong, who boasted that misnomer. And for a fella’ past fifty, Cruise still has a boyish grin!). But this isn’t the high-flying Maverick from Top Gun or even the more down-to-Earth Jack Reacher. Why this character, John Cage, has never seen combat! But somehow he’s been gifted with an edge courtesy of those invading aliens and only one person can help him use that advantage: a hard-nosed special forces hero played by Emily Blunt! The Brit beauty from The Devil Wears Prada? You wouldn’t expect a by-the-numbers, blast the otherworldly beasties, actioner from gifted director »

Cancel All Your Plans: This Summer Movie Weekend Offers a Diverse Slate of Must-Sees

5 June 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Has there been a better weekend for movies this year than this one? Friday offers more than enough for all tastes, temperaments and attention spans, from the saccharine ("The Fault in Our Stars") and acidic ("Borgman") to the crowd-pleasing ("Edge of Tomorrow") and deeply disturbing ("The Sacrament"). "Edge of Tomorrow" is not your ordinary Tom Cruise sci-fi mindbender. Doug Liman has a gift for off-center authenticity--even amid the orchestrated chaos of a major studio FX picture--and for finding moments on the fly that snap. His movies are hugely entertaining, often amusing, never predictable. In this case he is well-served by a brilliant script by Christopher McQuarrie, Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth (Liman's "Fair Game" and "Jerusalem"), adapting Hiroshi Sakurazaka's novel, which keeps us on the edge of surprise. And Cruise, 51, is perfectly cast as a Cage, a cocky Army flack who is a fish-out-of-water everyman sent to the front by General Brigham (Brendan. »

Trivia: 8 Weeks Before Production Began, 'Edge Of Tomorrow' Didn't Have An Ending

2 June 2014 10:23 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This weekend, Tom Cruise is back in theatres with the sci-fi blockbuster "Edge Of Tomorrow," one of the few summer movies not based on a toy, comic or video game (though it is based on a book). While our reviewers were split, the movie promises an intriguing premise, Cruise in action hero mode, and director Doug Liman operating at full throttle. But there was a moment just before cameras rolled, where it seemed the movie might come off the rails. The La Times reports that the script went through quite an overhaul on the way to the big screen. The screenplay by Dante Harper ("Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters"), an adaptation of the novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, was acquired in 2010 by Warner Bros. for a not insignificant $3 million dollars. From there, Joby Harold ("Awake") took a stab at it, updating the tale from a younger to an older protagonist. Then Jez »

‘Bourne Identity’ Director Doug Liman Says His ‘Splinter Cell’ Movie Will Be ‘Younger’

1 June 2014 5:17 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Director Doug Liman has amassed a varied list of film and television credits since breaking out with the 1996 indie film Swingers. Liman followed that up with the cult favorite Go before graduating to big-budget studio fare with franchise-starter The Bourne Identity.

While his two previous features, the 2008 film Jumper and real-life espionage tale Fair Game (2010) failed to connect with audiences, Liman is returning in a big way with sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow, which stars Tom Cruise and is already getting some great early reviews.

Such strong advance notices and his solid action-movie chops made the news that Liman was signing on to direct the ...

Film Review: ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

22 May 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Groundhog Day” and “Starship Troopers” make surprisingly compatible bedfellows in “Edge of Tomorrow,” a cleverly crafted and propulsively executed sci-fi thriller in which an untrained soldier must relive the same day over and over again — expiring violently each time — until he finds a way to defeat the alien marauders that have taken Earth hostage. That our ill-prepared hero is played by Tom Cruise lends a sly if perhaps unintended layer of subtext to this smarter-than-average star vehicle, insofar as the now 51-year-old actor seems to have embraced a similar trial-and-error career strategy: testing out one man-of-action persona after another in his ongoing (some would say undying) bid for bankability. Alas, B.O. success is likely to elude him this time out, as Warners’ June 6 release feels surprisingly low on buzz and audience awareness for an f/x-heavy picture with a $175 million pricetag. International returns will have to work extra-hard to make up the difference. »

Chadwick Boseman is Mr. Dynamite in Second 'Get On Up' Trailer

20 May 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The man's a genius, and he's taking us with him." We've already seen one trailer that showed 42 star Chadwick Boseman taking on the role of the Godfather of Soul in Get on Up. The film tells the story of the rise and struggles of famed singer James Brown, and a new trailer shows a little more of his troubled childhood and also his adult struggles to deal with the return of his estranged mother (Viola Davis) who he hasn't seen since she abandoned his family as a child. It doesn't sound like Boseman is doing his own singing, but he certainly seems to have Brown's mannerism's and speaking voice locked down. Watch now! Here's the new trailer for Tate Taylor's Get on Up, originally from Apple: Get On Up is directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) and written by Jez and John-Henry Butterworth (Fair Game, The Last Legion) with Steven Baigelman (Feeling Minnesota, »

Sean Penn channels his inner action man for 'The Gunman'

8 May 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sean Penn has been many things in his four-decade film career, but "action hero" has never really been one of them. That looks set to change as the two-time Oscar winner has taken the Liam Neeson route of middle-aged kickassery by starring in "The Gunman," an action thriller from "Taken" director Pierre Morel. The film stars Penn as a Ptsd-afflicted ex-special forces soldier, forced to go on the run across Europe to clear his name -- of what, the official synopsis doesn't quite say. Sounds like familiar Euro-thriller territory, though the cast is classier than usual: Penn is joined by Javier Bardem, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Jasmine Trinca and Tony-winning stage star Mark Rylance. Open Road Films has acquired Us rights to the French-Spanish-us co-production, and will open it in wide release -- the date has yet to be confirmed. Could they score the same kind of sleeper hit that Morel did with "Taken? »

River Road boards The Last Face

10 April 2014 3:03 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

River Road chief Bill Pohlad is understood to be financing the romance for Sean Penn to direct starring Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem.

The Africa-set story would appear to be a good fit for Lionsgate International to board as sales agent in the run-up to Cannes next month. At time of writing no parties had confirmed this.

The Last Face also stars Adèle Exarchopoulos from Cannes 2013 Palme d’or winner Blue Is The Warmest Color and it is understood Bill Gerber and Matt Palmieri will produce.

The story centres on two humanitarian doctors who meet in war-torn Africa. The story is based on a screenplay by Erin Dignam and is expected to shoot in Africa.

Penn and Pohlad have collaborated on three prior occasions — Into The Wild, The Tree Of Life and Fair Game — while Penn and Bardem recently wrapped production on Silver Pictures/StudioCanal’s The Gunman for Pierre Morel.

Watch: New 'Edge of Tomorrow' Trailer, Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

25 March 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

A new trailer for the big budget summer sci-fi "Edge of Tomorrow," starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, has crash-landed. Directed by Doug Liman, this is an adaptation of Hiroshi Sakurazaka's animated young adult novel "All You Need Is Kill." In the near-future of "Tomorrow," Earth is under the siege of an alien race. Tom Cruise plays a Major who dies violently during a suicide mission, but is somehow thrown into a time loop, forced to relive the day he died again and again. The rest of the plot details sound like makings of a video game -- with each successive replay of his death, the major gains increased skill to fight his adversaries. Liman's last film was the modest Valerie Plame drama "Fair Game" in 2010. In the 90s, he cut his teeth in indie films "Swingers" and "Go." He's certainly come a long way. »

‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Trailer #2: Tom Cruise Has Infinite Lives

25 March 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Tom Cruise is usually a pro at chewing bubblegum and kicking butt in his movies, but in the upcoming Edge of Tomorrow his character – Lt. Col. Bill Cage – is more experienced at drumming up support for the army – putting his good looks and charisma to use – than actual fighting. That changes when Cage is punished for insubordination by being deployed in the field, as part of the human resistance against an extraterrestrial army that’s invaded Earth.

Edge of Tomorrow was directed by Doug Liman (Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), who drew from a screenplay co-written by Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and Jez and John-Henry Butterworth (Fair Game), based on the novel All You Need Is Kill by Japanese author Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Cruise spends most of the film sharing the screen with Emily Blunt ...

New Trailer for Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise & Emily Blunt

25 March 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

When Warner Bros. launched the first trailer for Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow at the end of last year, it was clear that we’d be in for a rollercoaster-ride of a blockbuster this summer.

That first trailer naturally earned itself a spot on our Top 25 Trailers of 2013, and we’ve been looking forward to what would come next. With just a few more months to go before it arrives, we’re due a new look at the sci-fi/actioner, and Warner Bros. haven’t disappointed.

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, »

Doug Liman to Direct Tom Hardy in Splinter Cell

19 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Via: THR

Director Doug Liman is in final negotiations to direct the big screen adaptation of the hit video game franchise Splinter Cell, which is set to star Tom Hardy. Liman is the same director who has brought us films such as Swingers, Go, The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jumper, Fair Game, and the upcoming Tom Cruise sci-fi movie Edge of Tomorrow. The guy has a solid resume of work, and I think he's a great choice to bring Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell to life on the big screen.

Before Liman came on board the movie was in development at DreamWorks and Paramount and it had Peter Berg attached to direct. The project is now set up at New Regency with Ubisoft leading the charge. I think the current project is in good hands, and I hope Liman gives fans a film they can be proud of. »

Chadwick Boseman Has Soul as James Brown in First 'Get on Up' Trailer

13 March 2014 4:27 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You wanna go down in history as the man that killed the funk?" After bringing Jackie Robinson to life in 42, actor Chadwick Boseman has another biopic coming this year, but this time it's a microphone in his hand instead of a baseball bat. Tate Taylor (The Help) directs Get On Up, the story of James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, and the first trailer has arrived. It certainly looks lively, until the serious part of the story kicks in with Viola Davis showing up as the singer's estranged mother. This could be great, but we hope it doesn't just graze the surface like 42. Also keep an eye out for Dan Akyroyd and Craig Robinson. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Tate Taylor's Get On Up, originally from Apple (via The Film Stage): Get On Up is directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) and written by Jez and John-Henry Butterworth (Fair Game, »

First Look: Chadwick Boseman as James Brown in 'Get On Up' Biopic

13 January 2014 9:05 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After playing Jackie Robinson on the big screen in 42, actor Chadwick Boseman is bringing another icon to life, this time in the music world. The Help director Tate Taylor is directing Get On Up, a biopic on the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Boseman plays the energetic singer in the film that is currently shooting in Mississippi. Before passing in 2006, the project had Brown involved behind the scenes, so this should be a rather accurate portrayal of his life. But can Boseman deliver the iconic voice of Brown? Well, apparently Taylor will use a combination of Boseman's voice and an overlay of the singer's actual voice. Anyway, we have the first look photo featuring Boseman singing and Craig Robinson on the saxophone. Look below! Here's the first photo from Tate Taylor's Get On Up from Entertainment Weekly: Get On Up is directed by Tate Taylor (The Help) and written »
