Max von Sydow Joins The Cast Of Game Of Thrones Season 6

3 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Max von Sydow is one of Hollywood's most experienced and talented veteran actors, boasting a fantastic career that includes The Exorcist, Minority Report, Shutter Island and even the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now it appears the two-time Academy Award nominated actor has turned his attention to the small screen. EW have revealed that von Sydow has joined the cast of HBO's incredibly popular fantasy series, Game Of Thrones. He will reportedly portray the 'Three-Eyed Raven' - the ancient mentor of Bran Stark. Fans may remember that we've already briefly seen the Three-Eyed Raven - played by Struan Rodger at the end of Season 4. However, it's clear that the show's producers have clearly recast with the view to securing a bigger name for this pivotal role. Von Sydow's involvement is yet another huge scoop for the HBO show, and comes hot on the heels of the arrival of former Deadwood star, »

Leonardo DiCaprio May Star In Drug Epic The Cartel, Get The Details

23 July 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the last few years, Leonardo DiCaprio has had a mixed run playing law enforcement roles - as the amazingness of both Martin Scorsese's The Departed and Shutter Island are unfortunately counterbalanced by the snore-fest that is Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar. Of course, that doesn't mean his time wearing a badge is necessarily over, as new reports are suggesting that he could wind up taking the lead role as DEA agent Art Keller in a big screen adaptation of Don Winslow's recently-released novel The Cartel. Deadline broke the scoop on this one, reporting that 20th Century Fox won an auction for the book's screen rights - as well as the rights to the book that introduced Art Keller into fiction, The Power of the Dog. Ridley Scott is apparently committed to directing the high-priced adaptation, and Shane Salerno - who penned the last big screen Don Winslow film, »

The story is set in a deep sea research facility six kilometres beneath the ocean surface. Three years earlier a mysterious disaster killed the crew and closed the station, and now a new team is sent down to restart things back up.

Japanese Deep Sea Manga ‘6000’ Being Adapted as Movie

21 July 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

All Nippon Entertainment Works and “Black Swan” producer Mike Medavoy are partnering to adapt the deep sea thriller “6000” as a feature film.

The English-language film will be based on Nokuto Koike’s Japanese horror Manga series “6000: Rokusen” from Gentosha Comics, which is partnering on the project.

Edward McGurn and Ben Anderson are producing along with Medavoy. Tara Billik is overseeing the project for Anew.

The film is set 6,000 meters below the ocean’s surface at a research facility where a mysterious disaster killed the crew and shuttered the station. When a new team is sent down to get the operation running again three years later, tension builds as they struggle against the claustrophobic environment, their own deteriorating minds and danger lurking in the depths.

“We were immediately drawn to the tension of ‘6000,’ and are looking forward to bringing this psychological thriller to the international movie audience,” Medavoy said.

Movie Review: Self/Less

10 July 2015 5:03 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I remember when I was young, my father, a sort of rogue ecologist who learned everything he knew about rivers and their ecosystems secondhand, told me about these species of bottom feeders that lived in streams all over the Missouri and Mississippi river basins. I don’t remember what species they were but the thing about them was that they only flourished in polluted bodies of water. They didn’t flourish because of the pollution necessarily so much as their natural predators, killed off by the pollution, ceased to keep them in check and so their population would explode. Despite their usefulness as a gauge for the health of a stream, they were generally unwelcome.

I think I’ve come to regard Ben Kingsley in the same manner. It all started with a film called Suspect Zero (though really, it must’ve really started with House of Sand and Fog »

Ben Affleck to direct adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s novel ‘Live By Night’

9 July 2015 4:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As reported today by Variety, Ben Affleck will be directing Live By Night, a project he’s been meaning to work on for the past few years. But with his starring roles in Gone Girl and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it’s understandable that the actor/director hasn’t had too much time on his hands to work on anything else.

Now with Batman v Superman in post-production, his main focus will be this film, based on the Dennis Lehane crime novel set in the Prohibition era. Affleck, along with directing and producing, will also star in the film alongside Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, and Sienna Miller.

Many of Lehane’s books have been turned into films (Mystic RiverShutter Island, and as Affleck already did with Gone Baby Gone), so it’s no surprise that Affleck has gone back to adapt the novelist’s work into another »

'Fatal Attraction' is the Next Film to Get 'Event Series' Reboot

3 July 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Hollywood continues revisiting their VHS collections finding movies and television shows from the '80s and '90s to bring back through name recognition, somewhere some executive at Fox must have dusted off a copy of Fatal Attraction. That would be because the 1987 romance thriller is the latest film property to get the "event series" treatment on the tube. The reasoning for this, it seems, is because current Fox president David Madden supervised and developed the movie when he was an executive at Paramount. So at the very least, this is probably more a personal project for the studio head than your average re-churning. At the moment, it doesn't look like anyone else from the original property is involved, though "Mad Men" scribes Maria and Andre Jacquemetton are signed on to rewrite James Dearden's Oscar-nominated screenplay. That's right, were you aware Fatal Attraction had six(!) Oscar nominations back »

Terminator Genisys movie review: back from the future… again

Hollywood's fatal attraction to TV: why studios are turning to the small screen

2 July 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Paramount is the latest major studio to reboot its movies as TV series, with the likes of American Gigolo and Shutter Island to get the treatment along with Fatal Attraction

Like Glenn Close rearing out of the bath when you think she can’t possibly have any life left, old movies are increasingly being reanimated in the entertainment industry’s desperate search for content across other platforms. Three months ago Disney’s plans to reboot its venerable animations as live-action films was under the spotlight; now it is the turn of fellow Hollywood studio Paramount to flex its muscles as it ransacks its archive for recyclable properties.

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

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.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“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 »

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 »

Movie Review – Preservation (2015)

14 May 2015 2:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Preservation, 2015.

Directed and written by Christopher Denham.

Starring Wrenn Schmidt, Pablo Schreiber and Aaron Staton.

 

Synopsis:

When a woman, her husband and his ex-army brother go on a hunting and camping trip, they quickly become the hunted.

Oh boy, that State Park has seen better days. Probably why it’s been closed down. And jeez, that’s a creepy looking playground, all rusted and covered in graffiti. Is that a tunnel full of children’s shoes? Yuck. Don’t worry, I’m sure your recently-discharged-from-the-army brother with a drinking problem will keep us safe. After all, he’s snuck up on us out of nowhere several times already. Shows he’s got skills. Good to have him and his vicious looking dog on our side.

Preservation is a horror movie that opens with more red flags than an overly cautious game of Minesweeper – some similarly coloured herrings, the others impending traps, »

8 TV shows based on horror movies -- and how they fared

12 May 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the recent successes of such TV series as "American Horror Story," "Hannibal" and Showtime's "Penny Dreadful," horror is hot on the small-screen right now -- so much so that in addition to MTV's forthcoming small-screen "Scream" spinoff, TV studios are in the midst of bringing a horde of cinematic fright-film properties to television, ranging from "Shutter Island" to "The Devil's Advocate" to "The Mist." In light of this, I've taken a look back at eight previous horror movie-to-tv translations and analyzed why they hit -- or didn't -- with audiences. "Bates Motel" (A&E) Based on: "Psycho" Aired: 2013-present Why it did (or didn't) work:a great pedigree ("Lost" showrunner Carlton Cuse), a terrific cast (Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore) and generally positive critical notices gave "Bates Motel" a sheen of respectability that worked well in this Golden Age of prestige television. The show has so far aired three successful seasons »
