Everest Trailers: Jake Gyllenhaal and Josh Brolin Struggle for Survival

4 June 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures has released the first domestic and international trailer for director Baltasar Kormakur's (2 Guns) epic survival drama Everest. Inspired by real events and written by Mark Medoff (Children of a Lesser God) and Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog MIllionaire), the movie focuses on two different expeditions that struggle to survive while climbing the world’s tallest mountain. This is one of my most-anticipated films of the year, and this trailer only raises my enthusiasm. It establishes that this is a diverse group of characters, and the stakes of the climb. But oddly, while getting to the top is depicted as tough but possible (although I find it hard to believe there’s enough oxygen at the top for someone to cheer), it’s trying to get back down that might kill you. Either way, I can’t wait to see this movie, and it looks like it will be dizzying in IMAX. »

Toronto Film Festival Eases Telluride Policy on Premieres

3 June 2015 8:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Suggesting a cooling of last year’s tensions with its North American rival Telluride, the Toronto Intl. Film Festival has slightly loosened its rules for premieres during the first four days of this year’s event.

The festival said Wednesday it will allow movies that have previously screened at Telluride to screen during its opening weekend, but not at the three prime venues: the Elgin Theatre, the Princess of Wales Theatre and the Roy Thomson Hall.

Last year, films that bowed at Telluride (which is held over Labor Day weekend, a few days before Toronto) were prevented from screening at Toronto until after the festival’s first four days. Under the revised policy, Telluride-bowed films can now be shown during that timeframe at Toronto’s Bell Lightbox, Ryerson Theater or Scotiabank Theater.

Telluride avoids use of the word “premiere” but showed several high-profile films in 2013 — including “12 Years a Slave,” “Gravity »

Michael Jackson Bollywood Mashup Goes Viral (Video)

21 May 2015 12:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Michael Jackson's 1979 classic hit "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough” has been mashed up with Bollywood hit track “Chaiyya Chaiyya,” which was featured in the 1998 film Dil Se starring Shah Rukh Khan.

First look at Michael Fassbender in Steve Jobs

19 May 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) is giving us our first look at Michael Fassbender as iconic entrepreneur and Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a new look at the man behind the ubiquitous Apple revolution.

This isn’t your typical chronological biopic on the man behind the iGeneration, and hopefully by now, we’ve all forgotten about that other Steve Jobs movie with Ashton Kutcher. In Steve Jobs, the action is set backstage at three of the brand’s iconic product launches: the Mac in 1984, the NeXT in 1997, and the iPod in 2001.  The film will chart an already successful Jobs through a career low and exile from Apple, before he returns to unveil the revolutionary iPod.

Based on Walter Isaacson's book with a script by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), the first teaser for the film gives us barely a glimpse at the titular Jobs as we instead get »

The deification of 'Steve Jobs' begins with first look teaser trailer

17 May 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It seems pretty obvious given what's on paper that, if you're interested in the annual film awards derby at year's end, you should be keeping a pretty close eye on "Steve Jobs." Produced by Oscar winners Scott Rudin ("No Country Old Men") and Christian Colson ("Slumdog Millionaire") along with nominee Mark Gordon ("Saving Private Ryan"), written by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin ("The Social Network"), directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire") starring Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender ("12 Years a Slave") and winner Kate Winslet ("The Reader") — yeah, this is that "sight unseen" territory. And just like that, everyone forgot about that Ashton Kutcher movie. Of course, it goes without saying, buyer beware on that kind of thing. Every year something that looks like a perfect fit on paper ends up falling to the wayside. Each of those names have seen it happen, in fact, as well as the studio distributing the film: Universal Pictures. »

Directed by Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) and written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), the film is set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, taking us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter. Sorkin's screenplay was adapted with the aid of Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography of the Apple founder and co-stars Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh; Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple; and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley.

Must Watch: First 'Steve Jobs' Trailer Starring Michael Fassbender

17 May 2015 3:49 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"No one sees the world the same way you do." Wow! Universal has debuted the first trailer for the Steve Jobs movie, directed by Danny Boyle, starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs, and it's quite something to behold. In fact, if you're been anxiously awaiting this, you might as well hold your breath - it's only about 60 seconds long. Remember, this is the film with the Aaron Sorkin screenplay, supposedly taking place in 3 distinct scenes, one of them being the iPod unveiling which I believe this cheering moment might be from. Fassbender plays Steve Jobs and we get a good look at him. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Katherine Waterston and Jeff Daniels. I'm really, really looking forward to this - great first look so far. Here's the first official trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs, first found via Collider: Steve Jobs is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, »

James Bond 007: revisiting Octopussy

17 May 2015 2:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We've arrived at Roger Moore's penultimate Bond. But isn't it about time somebody fought Octopussy's corner?

After the comedown of For Your Eyes Only, the series is back on a high. A very good-natured, occasionally thrilling escapade that boasts an impressive roster of villains, a finely developed heroine, unusually meaty roles for series stalwarts General Gogol and Q, a nuclear bomb and a gloriously stupid title. Yes, Roger Moore has aged to the point where counting the wrinkles is a legitimate distraction. And many valid criticisms can be levelled about plot and credibility. But the good outweighs, or certainly overwhelms, the bad in Octopussy. Still, he really should have quit after this one.

The Villain: Kamal Khan got his break by winning the talent competition Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar - and that was just the beginning. 2012 hit Ishk Sufiana launched Khan into stardom and he bagged »

Cannes: Harvey Weinstein Vows Jake Gyllenhaal Will Get Oscar Nom for ‘Southpaw’

14 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Weinstein Co.’s Cannes presentation is always an early launching pad for fall awards season. But on Thursday afternoon at the Majestic Hotel, Harvey Weinstein actually started handicapping the 2016 Oscars race from the South of France.

Joined by Jake Gyllenhaal onstage, Weinstein said it was an outrage that the star was snubbed for his performance in “Nightcrawler,” which was released by Open Road Films last fall. “We’ll get revenge,” Weinstein said. “This transformation in ‘Southpaw’ is amazing,” Weinstein added about the upcoming summer movie directed by Antoine Fuqua, where Gyllenhaal plays a professional boxer. Weinstein revealed that “Southpaw” had been selected for Cannes, but it couldn’t play in competition because Gyllenhaal is a member of the jury.

COO David Glasser opened the event by telling the international crowd that 2015 would be a strong year for TWC. After a series of clips premiered, Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller (“Adam Jones »

Freida Pinto To Join Serkis' "Jungle Book"

8 May 2015 5:53 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Freida Pinto ("Slumdog Millionaire," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes") is reportedly set to reunite with Andy Serkis in his directorial debut "Jungle Book: Origins" at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Based on Rudyard Kipling’s classic story, Pinto will join Matthew Rhys and Rohan Chand in the live-action roles rather than those doing the performance capture for the animals.

Serkis, Jonathan Cavendish, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Benedict Cumberbatch star as some members of that performance capture cast.

Callie Kloves penned the script and Serkis will produce with Steve Kloves. The film is targeting an October 6th 2017 release.

Freida Pinto Heads To Jungle Book: Origins For Andy Serkis

8 May 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After acting alongside a mo-capped Andy Serkis in Rise of the Planet of the ApesSlumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto is reteaming with him for Warner Bros.’ Jungle Book: Origins.

Deadline reports that Pinto will take on a live-action role in the blockbuster pic, on which Serkis is set to make his directorial debut. She joins The Americans star Matthew Rhys, who is playing explorer John Lockwood, and Bad Words breakout Rohan Chand, who won the role of Mowgli, in the production, which will blend live-action and motion-capture to adapt the classic by Rudyard Kipling.

No details yet on which part the actress will play, but Jungle Book: Origins tells the story of an orphaned human boy raised by jungle animals including a friendly bear and a wise panther, so it’s perhaps likely that Pinto is playing either an explorer or Mowgli’s birth mother.

Oscar Film Series: Boyle-Franco Collaboration Mostly Works Despite Director's Exaggerated Hyperkinetic Touches

6 May 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'127 Hours' movie with James Franco '127 Hours' Review: James Franco stars in harrowing real life-based story 127 Hours. When I initially heard that Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar-winning team behind Slumdog Millionaire, were adapting the real life story of Aron Ralston for the big screen, I got excited. A movie seemed an inevitability when the story broke in the news – and Ralston wrote a book about it – but I couldn't have imagined such a great filmmaking team actually working on it. When James Franco was cast as Ralston, my hopes hit a high. Franco is an underrated and remarkably talented actor unfortunately snubbed by most for his wonderful work in 2008's Milk and Pineapple Express. Danny Boyle also happens to be a very skilled director, one whose style tends to be hyperkinetic. Though it worked beautifully in Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting, Boyle's touch actually hinders, rather than enhances, »
