Bill Murray talks about his cameo in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters remake

31 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While on the promotional tour for his new film Rock The Kasbah, which had a special preview screening this past weekend, Bill Murray was asked about his decision to cameo in the upcoming Ghostbusters remake, directed by Spy’s Paul Feig.

Speaking to Vulture, Murray revealed about why he agreed to participate in the film like his Ghostbusters co-star Dan Aykroyd (who also cameos), and what it was like to be back around the ghosts:

“I thought about it for a very long time,” Murray said. “Like, many, many months. No, that’s not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really… It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls. And then I started to feel like if I didn’t do this movie, maybe somebody would write a bad review or something, thinking there was some sort of disapproval [on my part].”

Scorsese (Costly) Short Featuring the Director, DiCaprio, and De Niro Has Been Pulled from Venice Festival

29 August 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name. The Venice Film Festival is surely no exception, especially as it's the year's final internationally renowned European movie fest, held shortly before the fall – i.e., awards – movie season begins. Well, one work by a top Hollywood name will no longer be available at Venice: The Audition, a short film directed by and featuring veteran Martin Scorsese, has been pulled out. "We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time," festival organizers said in a statement earlier today, Sat., Aug. 29, '15.

Blu-ray Review: The Editor

28 August 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Recent films like Berberian Sound Studio and The Strange Color Of Your Body's Tears have paid homage to giallo and the '70s Italian horror genre, in a way creating a modern resurgence. Now the Canadian collective known as Astron-6 have thrown their hat in the ring with a satiric approach. Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy lovingly pay tribute to the genre and cleverly poke fun at everything from Suspiria and The Beyond to the more obscure films from that era. There's great attention to detail in everything from the production design and lighting, to the overdubbed dialogue and eerie synth score, and they even got Claudio Simonetti from Goblin to contribute to the main theme.

Adam Brooks instills great comedic sensibility into his character, Rey Ciso. Once the greatest editor in the world until horrific circumstances left him with wooden fingers on his right hand, Rey now finds himself cutting sleazy bottom-of-the-barrel slasher pictures. »

First look at Michael Fassbender in Assassin's Creed

27 August 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Michael Fassbender is collecting an eclectic group of characters over the next year, including MacbethSteve Jobs, and of course, he's returning as Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. Before he gets back into Erik Lensherr’s red and purple get-up, however, Fassbender will go incognito in a less flashy number in Assassin’s Creed.

Fassbender won’t be playing one of the assassins from the already released games, but rather a new protagonist – “hero”’s not exactly the correct term – named Callum Lynch will lead the Assassin’s Creed movie. “Callum” is a Gaelic name, so there’s a chance Fassbender may retain his native Irish accent for the film.

Honestly, though Fassbender’s great and all, we’re really just waiting around for our first look at Fassbender’s Lady Macbeth, Marion Cotillard, in full assassin gear, carrying around knives and brooding. It’s going to be awesome.

TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

10 Most Overrated HBO Series Ever

26 August 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

HBO

HBO has consistently put out most of the greatest television of the last 20 years. There’s no denying the quality of shows such as The Wire, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Veep, Carnivàle, Deadwood, The Jinx and Boardwalk Empire. Whether it’s drama, documentaries or comedies, they’ve been blowing minds on a very consistent basis. Of course the network has green-lit some absolute duds in its time too – Lucky Louie, Little Britain USA and Arli$$, just to name a few – but its hit-rate is genuinely impressive.

But what about those shows that proved ridiculously popular, that were (or are) either commercially successful or critically adored, despite their lack of substance and their generic style? There are so many series that were celebrated more because of their creators, or simply because of their presence on such a revered network, rather than the content produced. A few of these shows had exceptional early seasons, »

Public Morals Review – TV TNT

25 August 2015 3:04 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

There aren’t a lot of people who can pull off writer/director/actor in the first place, but among those who can pull it off, they need to find an exact fit. Edward Burns shot out of the gates with The Brothers McMullen 20 years ago, and he’s been trying to find the sweet spot again ever since, and without much luck.

His work mostly hasn’t been bad, but it hasn’t been great (though The Fitzgerald Family Christmas came close), and it has seemed a result of trying to make niches work when there wasn’t truly a lot of potential.

Though Burns only acted in Mob City, it apparently tuned him into a niche he could work with.

With Public Morals, Burns is back in the everything chair, and now he has exactly the right team with him, and though he kicks off slightly cheesy, once »

The Best and Worst TV Shows for Female, Minority Directors: DGA Study

25 August 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Directors Guild of America has released its best and worst lists of TV shows that hire female and minority directors.

Four out of the 27 worst violators — shows that had no minorities or women directing — were HBO productions, including “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Brink,” “The Comeback” and Cinemax/HBO’s “Banshee.”

The year’s top network in diverse hires was Bet, which had three shows — “Being Mary Jane,” “The Game,” “Single Ladies” — with 100% minority or female directors. CBS’ “The McCarthys” came in at No. 4 at 93%. (See full list below)

Overall, female directors are seeing a modest gain in employment on television as the number of episodes directed by women rose to 16% from 14% for the 2014-15 season, the DGA report shows.

But DGA president Paris Barclay, a veteran TV director and showrunner, said much more needs to be done. “The uptick in the number of episodes directed by women — modest but hopeful »
