Venice 2015: 'Black Mass' review

14 hours ago | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ After his portrayal of Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger in Michael Mann's Public Enemies (2009), Johnny Depp returns to the criminal underworld with his take on James 'Whitey' Bulger in Scott Cooper's glossy, competent yet strangely unengaging Black Mass (2015). Adapted from the book by Dick Leher, Cooper's film tells the story of the South Boston criminal leader who, through his connections with the FBI, rose from a small time thug to an out and out king pin. The film begins with local boy Bulger up to nothing much but no good. It's 1975 and Bulger has been back from a stint in Alcatraz. He has a bar and hands out beatings as he controls petty crime on his own turf.

Can ‘Black Mass’ Get Johnny Depp Back in the Awards Game?

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Venice — A decade ago, Johnny Depp appeared to be fast closing in on his first best actor Oscar. After having acquired a reputation through the 1990s as one of Hollywood’s most singularly creative leading men — giving award-caliber performances in the likes of “Ed Wood” and “Donnie Brasco” — his first nomination was a belated one. He was 40 in 2003: It was a testament to how much respect Depp had earned during his formative years that the Academy finally welcomed him to the club for his flamboyant gonzo turn in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.” It was, needless to say, the polar opposite of an Oscar-chasing vehicle. You don’t get nominated for a jokey Disney summer blockbusters unless your peers really, really like you.

He lost to Sean Penn, of course, but it was a close-run thing; Depp had pulled off an upset win at the Screen Actors Guild awards, »

Scott Cooper confirms that Sienna Miller has been cut out of Black Mass

4 September 2015 12:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Black Mass director Scott Cooper revealed during a recent interview with The Boston Globe that actress Sienna Miller has been cut out of the upcoming Whitey Bulger biopic Black Mass

Cooper praised Miller’s performance in the film, calling her work alongside Johnny Depp’s Bulger “fantastic,” but had his reasons for removing her from the final cut. He bluntly said, “It came down to narrative choices.” The director apparently wanted the film to mainly just focus on Bulger’s years as a crime boss in Boston, and not the years in which he was on the run with Miller’s character, which Cooper said were “less dramatic.” 

Miller would have played Catherine Greig, who was Bulger’s real-life girlfriend for 16 years. The actress said that she worked with a dialect coach to perfect her Boston accent for the film. In the past, Miller also admitted that she only shot for about two weeks, »

28 August 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new featurette for Black Mass, the studio’s upcoming biopic about Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger. Check out the video after the plot synopsis down below…

The featurette, which is titled “An Unholy Alliance,” shows interviews with cast and crew members, new footage from the film and teases the partnership between Whitey and his brother Bill Bulger.

In 1970s South Boston, FBI Agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton) persuades Irish mobster James “Whitey” Bulger (Johnny Depp) to collaborate with the FBI and eliminate a common enemy: the Italian mob. The drama tells the true story of this unholy alliance, which spiraled out of control, allowing Whitey to evade law enforcement, consolidate power, and become one of the most ruthless and powerful gangsters in Boston history.

Christian Bale races into pole position for Enzo Ferrari biopic

21 August 2015 3:21 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christian Bale will be hoping to give racing fans a thrill after signing up to play motoring magnate Enzo Ferrari in a new biopic.

Bale will work once again with Michael Mann on the project, after they teamed up for 2009's Public Enemies.

Deadline reports Ferrari is due to shoot next summer, but final details and further casting still need to be set up.

Mann has been working on the long-gestating project for fifteen years, at one time working alongside Sydney Pollack.

Several actresses are still thought to be in consideration for the movie's female lead.

It is known Ferrari will be set in 1957, during the peak of the team's early successes in the then-fledgling Formula One world championship.

The movie may also look into a fatal crash during the Mille Miglia race that year near the town of Guidizzolo, in which a car blew a tyre killing drivers Alfonso de Portago and Edmund Nelson. »

Christian Bale Takes on 'Ferrari' Biopic

20 August 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Christian Bale has agreed to star in director Michael Mann's Ferrari biopic, which the filmmaker has been trying to get off the ground for the past 15 years. Deadline reports that the project isn't set up at a studio yet, but it could very well find a home soon, with pre-sales at film festivals such as Telluride, Toronto and Venice coming up in the next few weeks. Michael Mann had once been collaborating on this project with late filmmaker Sydney Pollack, before he passed away in 2008.

Enzo Ferrari (Christian Bale) started out as a driver for Alfa Romeo in 1924, but he ended up leaving the company in the late 1930s to start his own company, Ferrari. The story takes place in 1957, a year described as one where "passion, failure, success and death and life all collided." While no specific story details were given, 1957 is the year when a Ferrari driver »

Christian Bale And Michael Mann Reteam For 'Ferrari'

20 August 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Okay, so "Blackhat" did dismal box office, and even diehard fans of director Michael Mann struggled to make a case for the movie (though a handful will). The filmmaker is stepping away from the world hackers and into the driver's seat for his long brewing "Ferrari," and he's got a big name to lead the movie. Christian Bale is reteaming with his "Public Enemies" director for the project. Based on Brock Yates’ book “Enzo Ferrari: The Man, the Cars, the Races” with a script by Troy Kennedy Martin (“The Italian Job”) and David Rayfield (“Out of Africa”), the film tells story of the founder of one of the most famous car company's in the world. The '50s-set story will also have a romantic angle as part of the plot, and a female lead is being sought. Read More: Michael Mann To Direct Enzo Ferrari Biopic This won't shoot »

Johnny Depp and the Black Mass cast get blood red character posters

6 August 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Johnny Depp is about to get into a whole lot of trouble – again. You’d think with movies like Public Enemies and Blow behind him, he’d learn not to get tangled up with the FBI. Okay, sure, Johnny and his characters aren’t one and the same, but it’s sometimes hard to remember that.

For example, is this Johnny or Jack adopting this orphaned bat? I can’t tell anymore.

In Black Mass, Johnny becomes Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious criminals in American history. The film – bursting at the seems with Boston accents – also stars Dakota Johnson as Bulger’s wife, Benedict Cumberbatch as Bulger’s state senator brother, as well as Joel EdgertonKevin BaconJuno TempleJesse PlemonsPeter Sarsgaard, and Corey Stoll. It breaks into theatres on September 18th.

2015 San Diego Comic-Con Coverage: Justice League: Gods and Monsters Interviews

As part of our 2015 San Diego Comic-Con International coverage, david j. moore chats with Justice League: Gods and Monsters director Sam Liu, writer Alan Burnett and voice actors Paget Brewster and Tamara Taylor

The DC Universe original movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters (out on DVD and Blu Ray July 28th From Warner Bros.) flip-flops DC’s stable characters by throwing them all in an alternate universe where they are not their famous, Justice-seeking selves. Instead, the characters are given vastly different identities (Batman, for example, is a vampire), and they become involved in a conspiracy that casts them in a dark, sinister light. At 2015’s San Diego Comic Con, several key members of the cast and crew were on hand to discuss their involvement with the film. Amongst those interviewed for this article are director Sam Liu (Superman/Batman: Public Enemies), writer/producer Alan Burnett (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm »

Hugh Jackman Exits Collateral Beauty; Johnny Depp Eyed As Replacement

15 July 2015 7:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hugh Jackman’s long-standing commitment to playing adamantium-clawed mutant Wolverine across multiple X-Men films has just forced him to drop out of Collateral Beauty, the gestating drama that’s next on deck for Me & Earl & the Dying Girl helmer Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, according to Deadline.

Jackman was committed to the buzzy drama but couldn’t make it work with shooting commitments for James Mangold’s untitled Wolverine stand-alone, which serve as the actor’s final outing as the beloved superhero character. One has to wonder whether Jackman wishes he could have taken off the claws for good a little earlier, seeing as his deals for the role are still making it problematic for him to balance other dramatic fare.

Nevertheless, PalmStar is moving ahead with the pic and is reportedly eyeing Johnny Depp to take over the lead role. Collateral Beauty is one of the more competitive titles on the market right now, »
