Listen To A Clip From Composer Lorne Balfe’s Terminator Genisys Score

27 June 2015 5:36 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Grammy winning composer Lorne Balfe creates an action-packed, emotive score for Paramount Pictures’ and Skydance ProductionsTerminator Genisys, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, and Jai Courtney. Oscar winning composer Hans Zimmer is the Executive Music Producer.

With the movie building from 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, including shot-for-shot recreations, Lorne Balfe’s score needed to honor the tradition of the past Terminator films while adding bold, new music to fit the action and emotions of Genisys.

Producer David Ellison says, “This is the largest scale Terminator movie that’s ever been made. There are bigger action sequences in Genisys than any prior Terminator film.”

In addition to propelling the action, Balfe’s score needed to tap into the film’s emotional core as it explores themes of freedom and guardianship. “The score contains everything but the kitchen sink. It’s a hybrid score, and although there are these massive action cues, »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Transformers 5: What We Know

26 June 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction was supposed to right the wrongs of the blockbuster franchise, with Michael Bay promising something different. He claimed it would be a better movie. That didn't quite turn out as planned. While Transformers 4 has it's moments, it is the lowest earning movie in the series, and the lowest rated as well. People hated this latest installment, even though it was meant to be a reboot with all new characters, a new setting, and a smaller, more intimate band of Autobots. Heck, it even introduced the Dinobots. But that did little to shake fans out of their explosion-induced coma. These monstrous metal beasts came in too late in a movie that was already over stuffed with insanity. So, with Transformers 5, Paramount is going to try once again to make something that is awesome, amazing, and everything we'd want in a Transformers movie. They've even set »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Mindy Newell: These Are The Voyages…

16 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“Don’t screw this up.”

Admiral Maxwell Forrest, Starfleet Command, to Captain Jonathan Archer • “Broken Bow” • Episode 1, Season 1, Enterprise

As I mentioned in last week’s column (Oh Boy), Scott Bakula also starred as Captain Jonathan Archer on Enterprise, which ran on the Upn network from September 2001 to May 2005, a total of four years. That’s one more year than Tos’s run, but three years shorter than its successful progenitors, Next Gen, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager.

Upn claimed that poor ratings caused Enterprise’s downfall; according to Wikipedia, it never rose above the Top 100 rank in the Neilson ratings system, debuting at #115, and continuing to sink until its final season, where it landed at #148. It’s generally perceived as a failure, and has been blamed for the lack of any Star Trek on either television or movie screens until J.J. Abrams’s 2009 film reboot of the franchise.

New images from Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups featuring Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett and more

15 June 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, but thanks to The Playlist we’ve got a new batch of images from the film, which shows off its all-star cast including Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Wes Bently and Teresa Palmer; check them out here…

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. »

Mark Wahlberg thinks Michael Bay will direct Transformers 5

13 June 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, it was reported that Michael Bay had decided to pass on the reins to the Transformers franchise to another filmmaker.

However, with the Transformers writers room in full swing, it seems Bay may have had a change of heart, as Mark Wahlberg has revealed to Collider that he expects to reunite with his Pain & Gain and Age of Extinction helmer for the fifth movie.

“I don’t [know the status of Transformers 5],” states Wahlberg. “Just that Akiva Goldsman and those guys are starting to write and break stories, and stuff like that. But Michael Bay is in Malta shooting Benghazi, and I’m in New Orleans shooting Deepwater. We’ll get together when he gets back. Yes [I think he’ll direct it].”

Bay is still attached to Transformers 5 as executive producer, but if he does decide to direct, it wouldn’t be the first time that he’d changed his mind, »

'Jurassic''s Thursday-saurus Rex

11 June 2015 11:59 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Jurassic World took in a terrific $18.5M in Thursday night showings in the U.S., which may mean that the original estimates of a $125M weekend for the fourth Jurassic film might be too conservative. In 3,220 locations, 78% of its eventual 4,273 total opening venues, the dino flick outpaced the Thursday that Universal's Furious 7 posted the night of April 2nd just two months ago. Furious 7, which got off the line with a $15.8M start, in 76% of its weekend's total venues, ended with $147.2M for that weekend, so it's certainly conceivable that World can do better. Even though Jurassic World proved to be Universal's biggest Thursday opening ever it still was not the biggest for the year. That still belongs to Disney/Marvel's Age of Ultron, which launched a $27.6M Thursday night (4/30) on its way to a $191.3M weekend. Regardless the June opening weekend record looks well on its way to being shattered. »

Top 20 Most Profitable Movies That Are Terrible

25 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Movies that make money don’t always do so because they’re good. Here’s our list of underwhelming movies that happened to overwhelm the box office.

While the box office is a good, general representation of the popularity of a film, it is not necessarily an indicator of quality. Yes, it is true that most of the highest grossing movies have also received favorable reviews from critics and audiences alike, that’s often what makes them a hit, but there are some exceptions. This is a list of those exceptions. This is a list of those movies that did spectacularly well at the box office, but ended up being an inferior product.

So why would so many people want to see a terrible film? Why would they waste their hard-earned money and fleeting free time? The answer is actually pretty simple. Many of these films share a lot of common traits. »

Movie Review – 8 1/2 (1963)

30 April 2015 10:56 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

8 1/2, 1963.

Directed by Federico Fellini.

Starring Marcello MastroianniClaudia CardinaleAnouk Aimée and Sandra Milo.

Synopsis:

A successful filmmaker struggles for inspiration, and has to reflect on his life and loves to work out where to go in his next film…

“It’s about creative procrastination” said, director of Under the Skin, Jonathan Glazer in 2002. While I doubt Michael Bay fails to acknowledge Fellini’s 8 ½ as inspiration (his 8 ½ film sitting somewhere between Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon), when you flip open the pages of any film magazine the artists, from Woody Allen to Wes Anderson and Charlie Kaufman to Terry Gilliam, all owe a debt to Fellini’s masterpiece. In fact, the Best Picture of 2014, Alejandro Inarritu’s Birdman, would play exceptionally well against Fellini’s 8 ½.

Federico Fellini, shortly after directing the sensual La Dolce Vita, was stuck. Like Guido (Marcello Mastroianni), trapped in the car, »

'Transformers' Multi-Part Sequel & Spinoff Movies Planned

27 March 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures is in negotiations with writer-director-producer Akiva Goldsman to help develop new Transformers movies alongside franchise director Michael Bay. Deadline reports that Paramount's approach is similar to what director James Cameron did with his Avatar sequels, forming a "writers room" of sorts that will come up with ideas to develop a new multi-part sequel and spinoff movies. Akiva Goldsman isn't expected to write any of these movies himself, but he will find new writers to craft the scripts based on his ideas for the franchise.

The site also reports that Michael Bay would like to have Transformers 5 ready to start production once he wraps on his Benghazi thriller 13 Hours. It has long been believed that last year's Transformers: Age of Extinction, which was the only movie last year to cross $1 billion worldwide, was the last Transformers he planned on directing, but it seems he'll be on board to helm Transformers 5 as well. »
