How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

The Weinstein Co. has promoted six-year veteran Ennis Hensley to be president of international sales and distribution.

Starz Sets Premiere Date for Patrick Stewart’s ‘Blunt Talk’

13 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Get ready for some “Blunt Talk.”

The half-hour comedy series from executive producer Seth MacFarlane — and starring Patrick Stewart — will debut on Saturday, August 22, at 9pm Et/Pt.

The 10-episode first season tells the tale of Walter Blunt, a cable newsman and U.K. transplant on a mission to teach Americans how to think, act and behave. But his wild off-air antics suggest a highly unorthodox teaching style.

Jonathan Ames, who created the series, serves as showrunner, writer and executive producer, along with Tristram Shapeero (“Community”) and Stephanie Davis (“Bored to Death”). The show hails from Mrc.

The series also stars Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”) as Blunt’s producer-manager; Adrian Scarborough (“The King’s Speech”) as his manservant; Dolly Wells (“Doll & Em”) as his senior producer; and Timm Sharp (“Enlightened”) as his head writer.

Blunt Talk” will be followed by the premiere of the 10-episode second season of “Survivor’s Remorse, »

A source told the new issue of Grazia magazine: “Bradley’s smitten and has been for a few weeks.

“He adores Irina and was raving about her to friends Sienna Miller and Madonna at the Met Gala.

The couple were introduced by mutual friend Leonardo DiCaprio shortly after Bradley split from British model Suki Waterhouse.

The source said: “Bradley was very taken with Irina when he first saw her at the Oscars in February. He and Suki were on the rocks and, once they’d split, »

Have We Finally Reached (and Found) Our New Stars for a New Erac

6 May 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are only a select few actors in the entire world who can command $20 million for a movie role simply by being in front of the cameras when they start to roll, but that exclusive club gained a new member recently. Her name, you askc Jennifer Lawrence, of course. Didn't you read the headlinec According to a report at The Hollywood Reporter, Lawrence is set to pull in twenty rocks for her role opposite Chris Pratt (who's getting $10 million) in Passengers, a long-gestating sci-fi feature that ultimately landed at Sony. Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon were once attached to star, then Reeves and Rachel McAdams, and now hot commodities Lawrence and Pratt are locked in as the leads, with Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) set to direct. Lawrence's negotiation strength has grown exponentially since picking up her first Oscar nomination for Winter's Bone and starring in both the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises. »

Why 2012 Was the Best Year in Film History

All week our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Click here for a complete list of our essays. I’m here today to argue that 2012 was the greatest year in cinema. I know  you’re thinking: is she insane?  How will she even begin to argue such a ridiculous theory? Sure, 2012 didn't  bring us Vertigo or Citizen Kane or Chinatown or whatever, but it Was the year Spring Breakers came out, so I think it’s time you showed some respect.   Just kidding, just kidding, calm down. The truth is, it really was the best year in cinema and here is why: Jennifer Lawrence. 2012 was the year J-Law rose to superstardom and showed the world how insanely talented she is in two very different but equally special films: Silver Linings Playbook and Hunger Games, the coolest dystopian film of our generation, and a creative, »

Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘Joy’ Gets Dark Preview at CinemaCon

23 April 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Don’t expect Jennifer Lawrence’s “Joy” to live up to its title — Fox presented a look at David O. Russell’s apparently dark drama about the inventor of the Miracle Mop at CinemaCon on Thursday.

The dialogue-free footage, with church bells chiming throughout, showed a blonde, smile-free Lawrence getting married and donning welder’s gear to design the Miracle Mop in the role of inventor-entrepreneur Joy Mangano, a single mother living in Long Island. Russell previously directed Lawrence in “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle.”

Edgar Ramirez plays Mangano’s husband and Robert De Niro is starring as Mangano’s father. The footage included a glimpse of a grim Lawrence and De Niro dancing at a wedding.

Fox has set “Joy” for a Christmas Day release.

Director Lee Toland Krieger said he first read the script for “Adaline” six or seven years ago, when he had one feature (“The Vicious Kind”) under his belt. At the time, the »
