How the ticking of a clock helped editor William Goldenberg pace 'The Imitation Game'

16 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Two years ago, William Goldenberg took the stage of the Dolby Theater on Oscar night as the Oscar winner for Best Film Editing on "Argo." This year, he is firmly back in the race, having cut Morten Tyldum's "The Imitation Game." I recently spoke to Goldenberg about the film, his approach to editing and his career to date. HitFix: When did you come aboard the film? William Goldenberg: I was offered the film probably six months before the movie was going to start shooting but I was booked. I had all of these people calling me saying I had to do it but I said I couldn't do it. But I became available and luckily for me they hadn't hired an editor yet and I was thrilled that they hadn't! How would you describe your approach on a macro level? My main goal when I'm cutting is always story. »

The destruction in Man of Steel will play a major part in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

17 December 2014 3:21 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since it was announced last year, we’ve heard a lot of talk about one half of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not so much on the other. Over the weekend our comments section blew up as people gave their thoughts on the colour of Batman’s new outfit, but there wasn’t so much talk about Superman when his costume was revealed.

Warning – potential spoilers…

So, just what will become of the Last Son of Krypton in this team-up movie? Well, according to Bad Ass Digest, the destruction caused by the fight between Superman and Zod in Man of Steel will play a major role in the plot for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. According to their sources who have read the script, Superman has become a very controversial figure, having intervened in America’s fight in the Middle East and has even been banned from Chinese airspace. »

Can you Survive? Preservation Trailer Debuts

16 December 2014 8:05 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Six years ago, an actor named Christopher Denham made a tight little “found footage” film called Home Movie. I picked it up on a whim at the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear/Toronto Fan Expo since it wasn’t available in America at the time. I really dug it and while Denham hasn’t been quiet on his acting career – working in ArgoThe Bay, a couple of episodes of The Following and Sound of My Voice. I was hoping to see his directorial follow-up a lot sooner. We got a trailer for his follow-up to Home MoviePreservation. Yes, it looks like a little bit of a twist on a familiar plot stemmed from the short story The Most Dangerous Game but who cares. I’m always up for a survival tale. Check out the trailer & poster below.

‘Birdman’, ‘Budapest’ And ‘Boyhood’ Get Key Oscar Boost To Lead Critics’ Choice Movie Award Nominations; Jolie Rebounds From Globe Snub

15 December 2014 6:45 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Continuing its romp through the critics kudos this awards season, Fox Searchlight’s Birdman drew a whopping 13 nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association’s 20th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. In fact it’s a big day for Fox in general as Searchlight’s March release, The Grand Budapest Hotel was remembered to the tune of 11 nominations, while big Fox scored 6 nominations with Gone Girl. All three compete for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay and significant acting nods. This is a big boost in particular for Budapest, coming on the heels of its SAG nod for Outstanding Cast as well as four key Golden Globe nominations.  Usually films opening as early as March are largely forgotten when it comes to Best Picture attention, but Budapest could be a rare exception in recent years if this triumph for the Wes Anderson comedy is repeated at the Oscars.  The last film that opened as early as March, »

First official look at Ben Affleck’s Batman v Superman Batsuit in colour

13 December 2014 3:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a couple of shots of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but not in colour… until now. ComicBook has discovered a colourised version of the first official photo of Affleck’s Dark Knight, which is taken directly from Zack Snyder’s Cruel & Unusual Films production company website…

So, pretty much as expected, but now that we know exactly what colour scheme they’ve gone with, how do you think it stacks up against the previous all-black versions we’ve seen on the big screen?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters on March 25th, 2016 with Zack Snyder directing a cast that includes returning Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) and Harry Lennix (General Swanwick) alongside Ben Affleck (Argo) as Batman, Gal Gadot (Fast & Furious 6) as Wonder Woman, »

Oscars Best Picture: 7 Underdogs That Could Benefit from Preferential Ballot

12 December 2014 2:04 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

All hope isn’t lost for “American Sniper.” Even though the Bradley Cooper drama about Navy Seal Chris Kyle hasn’t leapt into the award season race yet, it still holds a stealth advantage as it enters Oscar balloting — passionate fans.

The Golden Globe nominees (announced on Thursday) and SAG Awards (Wednesday) don’t necessarily take passion into account. But the Academy Award nominating system for best picture, determined by a preferential ballot (that puts more “weight” on a film ranked as No. 1 by a voter), can help out a movie like “Sniper,” which has ardent groupies. In recent years, films such as “A Serious Man,” “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” “District 9,” “Tree of Life,” “Toy Story 3″ and “Amour” were nominated in the top Oscar category because their fans loved them in a fanatical way.

Here are seven filmsthat could benefit from a similar surge this year.

2015 Golden Globes Nominations: The 7 Biggest Film Snubs and Surprises!

11 December 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

With the Golden Globe nominations revealed on Thursday, the awards season race is heating up for 2014's big screen stars. Just one day after the Screen Actors Guild announced its contenders, awards front-runners are emerging while some hopefuls are falling behind. We're breaking down this year's Globes snubs and surprises and what it means for that little gold man at the end of the finish line.

Pics: And the Golden Globe Nominees Are...

First up, let's talk surprises.

Quevenzhane Wallis: The pint-sized actress may have scored an Oscar nom in 2013 for her breakout role in Beasts of the Southern Wild, but few expected to see the 11-year-old as a serious awards contender this year. Sure, she's got chops, but we were surprised that Sony's musical Annie gave her award-worthy material. (Also surprising: this marks Wallis' first Globes nom – she was not nominated for Beasts.)

Ava DuVernay: File this under delightful surprises! DuVernay's [link=tt »

Jeremy Irons talks Alfred role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

9 December 2014 11:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has recently wrapped shooting but is not due for release for another fifteen months yet. The film is set to introduce us to lots of new characters and reimagining of characters we have seen on screen before. One of those is Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, played by Jeremy Irons, and so far not much has been said or revealed about the character in this version. Until now.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Irons revealed a bit of information about his role of Alfred, stating that it’s “not a large role” and adding that: “He is quite a different Alfred than we have seen so far. Zack Snyder had very clear views about what he wanted. I would just say he’s more hands-on perhaps than just a butler.”

So although it is a small role it sounds like it »

Possible Spoiler – Major character already dead in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

8 December 2014 3:03 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filming has wrapped, but we’re still a little way off from an official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (unless it does come out this year, attached to The Hobbit: The Five Armies), but that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill churning.

So what do have today? Robin? Doomsday? KGBeast?? Nope. According to Bad Ass Digest, there will be a major Batman character that will already be dead by the time the movie starts.

Still with us? Spoilers ahead…

So, the site is claiming that Detective Jim Gordon will already be dead in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, with script calling for a shot of his memorial plate. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard a rumour that the Batman character will already be dead, with the same site reporting that Robin would have bitten the dust as well.

What do we make of this new rumour? »

Interview: Graham Moore Talks His Screenplay for 'The Imitation Game' and Whether or Not It's "Gay Enough"

8 December 2014 7:13 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

On a very cold day in Seattle back in November I sat down with Graham Moore, screenwriter of The Imitation Game, an adaptation of Andrew Hodges book "Alan Turing: The Enigma", telling the story of British mathematician Alan Turing played to perfection by Benedict Cumberbatch, a performance that will almost certainly earn him an Oscar nomination. In fact, Cumberbatch won't likely be alone when it comes Oscar time for Imitation Game as the film is looked at as one of the front-runners for Best Picture and Moore himself is considered a very strong contender for not only a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination, but he is looked at by many as the front-runner to win. While we didn't talk Oscars in our conversation, we did discuss various aspects of his screenplay (download it here) from the film's opening lines, the fractured timeline narrative as well as the film's ending and what we didn't see. »

Et Goes Inside Hollywood's Hottest Restaurant

5 December 2014 5:07 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

George Clooney and Bill Clinton are regulars at Craig's Restaurant in West Hollywood, a place where the biggest stars go to eat and be seen, and Et went inside Hollywood's hottest restaurant.

After George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin, he went to Craig's for a boys' night out, and picked the American restaurant to host an Oscar bash to celebrate his Best Picture win in 2013 for Argo.

News: George & Amal Are Married!

Owner Craig Susser explained to Et why the restaurant appeals to the stars.

"There is a private way in and out," said Craig, which is ideal for camera-shy celebs. "We look after people. We serve good food, great service, and it's private. What goes on in these four walls stays in these four walls and I think people feel protected."

Before running his own celeb hotspot, Craig spent 23 years as the maître 'd at another celeb favorite, Dan Tana's. His famous »

The CIA Has Been Fact-Checking State of Affairs on Twitter - Yes, That CIA

If you've been watching NBC's Katherine Heigl vehicle State of Affairs for its realism and attention to detail, you're in for a rude awakening. The one and only Central Intelligence Agency has been sub-Tweeting the show since November, correcting inaccuracies as they crop up. Sub-Tweeting, for those of you who have yet to take Shade-Throwing 101, is when you Tweet at someone (or something) without actually mentioning their name. Think vague Facebook statuses.

Doomsday, Joker and KGBeast “confirmed” for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

3 December 2014 2:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Hot off the heels of yesterday’s blockbuster announcement of the casting for Suicide Squad, we now have some possible news on plot details for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to Badass Digest – who are usually spot on with “scoops” – Doomsday will indeed be in the main villain of the piece. Not only that, but Jessie Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor will have a henchman who is called Anatoli Knyazev in the script. Hardcore DC fans will take pride in knowing that this is in fact DC villain KGBeast, who has battled with Batman in the past. It is unlikely that we’ll see KGBeast in action in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but there are always other films…

The website also claims that while Jared Leto’s Joker is unlikely to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he will be mentioned as Superman is very much aware of his existence. »

Celebrities who love to gamble

2 December 2014 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Many celebrities are known for spending ridiculous amounts of money on flashy sports cars, luxury holiday homes, designer clothing and, in the case of Mike Tyson, Bengal tigers. One of the most costly (and profitable) activities pursued by superstars from all walks of life is high stakes betting. We take a look at some of the largest bets that have been placed by celebrities, the celebrities who excel at gambling, and which casino games celebrities seem to prefer.

Ben Affleck

The star of Gone Girl, Argo and Good Will Hunting, is a very accomplished blackjack and poker player, who has reportedly wagered as much as $60 000 a hand on a blackjack game. In fact, Affleck has shown such skill at blackjack that casino owners in Las Vegas have asked him to refrain from playing the game at their casinos, after realising that the actor is able to count cards and so increase his chances of winning. »
