10 Films Not Heading To Cannes (But Sure To Hit Venice and/or Toronto)

17 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival lineup is out, and while it certainly includes enough highly anticipated films to fulfill any cinephile's dreams between now and the festival's May 14th kick-off, there were a few films that didn't end up making the cut -- some bigger surprises than others. Whether due to the film not being done or a strategic move to screen it elsewhere or maybe even Cannes rejecting it, quite a few high profile films are now officially major contenders for the fall festival circuit's main trio -- Venice, Toronto and/or Telluride. Here are 10 examples: "Big Eyes" Directed by Tim Burton Tim Burton -- who headed the Cannes jury two years back -- has gotten a lot of flack as of late thanks to big budget, critically panned films like "Alice in Wonderland" and "Dark Shadows." And while it seems like he is making a return to fantasy-free, low-budget »

Ranking the Major Performances of Johnny Depp

16 April 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Few actors have been as adventurous or as weird, and few have risen to stardom so fast. Johnny Depp's filmography is as strange and varied as anyone's. With Transcendence hitting theaters this week, it's time to look back over the career of Johnny Depp and craft the definitive ranking of his performances. Here are our rules: only major roles are eligible (so no A Nightmare on Elm Street or The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and voice work in animated movies won't be ranked (so no Corpse Bride or Rango). The Brave is not ranked because it's still unavailable and unseen in North America. From worst to best, here are the 29 major Johnny Depp performances, ranked in quality. 29. Mad Hatter (Alice in Wonderland) This is it -- the nadir of Johnny Depp. No...

Alice | Blu-ray Review

15 April 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Have you ever seen a poorly stuffed animal? Like, one where the taxidermist flat out fucked up, letting faux tissue rest imbalanced on the skeleture or placing glass eyeballs protruding too far out of the eye sockets, leaving the poor passed-on animal but a mangled shell of its former self. Looking on such a disfigured beast generally conjures instantaneous disgust, a repugnancy solely caused by the unnatural look of creatures we know to look a specific way. This discomforting unnaturalness is the stuff surrealist Czech director Jan Švankmajer lives for. His lengthy oeuvre is packed with animated creatures that look as though they were purposefully aborted taxidermy projects. In the late 1980s, Švankmajer took on the task of adapting Lewis Carroll’s beloved Adventure’s in Wonderland with Alice, employing a mix of stop motion and live action to lense his white rabbit as a demented teeth chattering creature of childhood nightmares. »

5 Disney Movies that Should Be Remade

15 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

With Disney's Maleficent hitting theaters next month, we cannot help but think about all our favorite classic movies that have been remade into box office hits. Our leading lady Snow White was remade into Mirror Mirror, the adventurous Alice was recreated and brought to life in the 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland and we met a grown up Peter Pan in the adaptation Hook.

We are enjoying the remakes of our Disney adventures, there are a few classics we would not mind seeing be retold. We know there are too many remakes to name, but there are still a few they have yet to tackle. Take a look at the top five Disney classics that we would like to be remade with todays technology:

1. The Little Mermaid. Who does not want to see a mermaid in real life? We know we would love to see the animation of the fish talking to Ariel. »

Hollywood’s Growing Faith in Christian Movies

14 April 2014 6:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony’s Christian drama “Heaven Is for Real,” which opens Wednesday, is the latest offering in a year with an uncommonly large slate of religious-themed wide releases.

Although there’s long been a robust DVD market and numerous indie releases, more major studios have been taking a leap of faith and embarking on extensive marketing missions this year. It’s only fitting that the senior production exec for “Heaven Is for Real,” DeVon Franklin, is an ordained minister and one of the film’s producers, T.D. Jakes, is a bishop. Jakes has teamed up with “Alice in Wonderland” producer Joe Roth for the project.

“My hope is that it’s going to appeal to the same demographic of the book, which was in the mainstream,” said Franklin, the author of spiritual success book “Produced by Faith.”

“But at the same time,” he adds, “(the story) really had a strong faith-based following. »

Bill Condon Could Direct Live-Action Beauty And The Beast For Disney

11 April 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Disney grossed a billion dollars on Alice in Wonderland back in 2010 (something I’ll never understand), the House of Mouse has been eager to create live-action adaptations of all their animated classics. From The Jungle Book to Cinderella, the studio is digging deep into their catalogue in hopes of bringing back some of their most beloved films.

We’ve known for quite some time that Disney was looking to put together a live-action take on Beauty and the Beast, but until today, we hadn’t heard anything other than that they had hired a writer. Now, thanks to Film Divider, we’re learning that Bill Condon is rumored to be in talks with the studio to direct. This news should be taken with a grain of salt, as it hasn’t been confirmed by any type of official source. However, if you give it some thought, it actually makes some sense. »

Rumor: Could Bill Condon Direct Disney’s Live-Action Beauty And The Beast?

11 April 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though it’s taken a few years to come to fruition, Disney’s billion-dollar-grossing Alice in Wonderland kicked off a new trend for the studio in 2010.  It has slowly been working on live-action adaptations of some of the studio’s classic animated films, and we’ll see the next one this May in the form of Maleficent, which tells the Sleeping Beauty story from the villain’s point of view.  After that, we have Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella set for release in March 2015, Jon Favreau is directing a live-action take on The Jungle Book for release in October 2015, and there is also a redo of Beauty and the Beast in the works. While Disney set a writer on Beauty and the Beast early last year, we haven’t heard much more about the project in the interim.  However, if a new report is to be believed, the studio may »

News Simon Brew 10 Apr 2014 - 06:31

Mark Rylance goes where Keith Richards went before: he's set to play Johnny Depp's dad in a blockbuster sequel...

Director James Bobin is already hard at work preparing for the upcoming shoot of the sequel to Tim Burton's live action Alice In Wonderland movie. Entitled Through The Looking Glass, the new film will see Johnny Depp reprise the role of the Mad Hatter, with Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter also returning.

And we've now got a bit of new casting news for the film. Mark Rylance, an actor with no shortage of strong stage credits, is to play the father to Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter in the new movie. No further details have been forthcoming on the role apart from that, though.

More casting announcements are expected soon, although the film itself isn't due in cinemas until May 27th 2016.

Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter Gets a Father in 'Alice in Wonderland 2'

9 April 2014 8:41 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Though we don't know much about the Alice in Wonderland sequel developing at Disney, other than it will be called Through the Looking Glass and feature the return of Mia Wasikowska in the title role along with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, we might have a hint of what's to come with the latest casting reveal. Variety has word that stage actor Mark Rylance is currently in talks to play the father of Depp's looney, top hatted character. Of course, without any plot details, we're unsure just how integral the actor will be in the progression of the sequel's story. More below! Rylance is best known for theater work, but he can be seen in Roland Emmerich's Anonymous (a movie that I completely forgot about until this very moment) and the forthcoming thriller The Gunman with Sean Penn.
