Strange Magic review

23 August 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

George Lucas produces the Ilm animated fantasy, Strange Magic. Here's Mark's review of a curious genre mash-up...

Since George Lucas got out of the Star Wars business, he's been lending his Hollywood heft to some long-gestating passion projects that might be difficult to produce independently elsewhere. He started developing Red Tails, a war movie about the Tuskegee airmen, back in 1988 and eventually served as producer and an uncredited co-director on the 2012 movie.

Lucasfilm's latest, Strange Magic, is directed by Oscar-winning sound designer Gary Rydstrom, but it's also been around for much longer than you'd think. 15 years ago, while working on that pesky prequel trilogy, Lucas started thinking about making a film for his daughters. “Just like Star Wars was designed for 12-year-old boys,” Lucas told Wired upon the film's Us release in January, “Strange Magic was designed for 12-year-old girls.”

If that sounds a little reminiscent of when John Travolta »

Top 5 Johnny Depp Films

10 July 2015 12:23 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s been some time since Johnny Depp graced our screens. He’s been a Hollywood icon for over 30 years and has starred in some of the biggest box office smashes in history as some of the most recognisable characters on our screens.

So much so that in a recent poll by Ladbrokes, he was voted the UK’s favourite current celebrity. Which is quite the accolade in a world of the Kardashians and Ryan Gosling.

Of course, that’s because he has a fantastic back catalogue of work, but what ranks up there amongst his best?

A Nightmare on Elm Street

A Nightmare on Elm Street may have been Johnny Depp’s first role on the big screen, but he showed no sign of nerves with a magnificent performance as Glen Lantz, one of the main characters who experience the horrific nightmares of Freddy Krueger.

Depp was aged just 21 at the time, »

Review: Patience pays off for refreshing animated tale 'The Little Prince'

4 June 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — In 2015, it's much easier to tell which company produced an animated movie as opposed to who directed it.  That’s a tad disheartening considering how much energy the studios behind these films exert trying to nudge their directors into the spotlight. For instance, you can immediately tell a Pixar film by its character design and a story that almost always has a life message it wants to tell (which you can predictably see a mile away, for better or worse). Walt Disney Animation has soared in recent years by blissfully keeping the movie musical alive or finding the heartstrings in action-packed adventures. DreamWorks Animation films skew toward broad, interactive 3D animation that overshadows their peers and a sense of humor that can often appeal more to adults than kids (at times). Laika’s gorgeous stop-motion work has the quirky, dark corner completely covered. The artists at Universal’s Illumination »

The 57 Greatest Westerns Ever, Ranked

26 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's fitting that Clint Eastwood and John Wayne both have the same birthday week. (Wayne, who died in 1979, was born May 26, 1907, while Eastwood turns 85 on May 31). After all, these two all-American actors' careers span the history of that most American of movie genres, the western.

Both iconic actors were top box office draws for decades, both seldom stretched from their familiar personas, and both played macho, conservative cowboy heroes who let their firearms do most of the talking. Each represented one of two very different strains of western, the traditional and the revisionist.

As a birthday present to Hollywood's biggest heroes of the Wild West, here are the top 57 westerns you need to see.

57. 'Meek's Cutoff' (2010)

Indie filmmaker Kelly Reichardt and her frequent leading lady, Michelle Williams, are the talents behind this sparse, docudrama about an 1845 wagon train whose Oregon Trail journey goes horribly awry. It's an intense »

John Logan on 'Penny Dreadful' Season 2, Keeping Secrets from Actors and Why James Bond Shouldn't Come to TV

3 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

John Logan has done it all. The three-time Oscar nominee has written intimate dramas ("The Aviator," "Coriolanus"), musicals ("Sweeney Todd"), historical epics ("Gladiator," "The Last Samurai"), animated films ("Rango") and giant blockbusters ("Skyfall" and its upcoming sequel, "Spectre"). He even started off writing TV movies before transitioning to his first TV series just last year, with Showtime's horror hit "Penny Dreadful."  It's this story he likes most of all: Literary characters abound in his monster mash with equal doses of drama and scares. Logan planned out the first three seasons before committing to the series, but he's thinking ahead even further, now that he's in it. Below, Logan talks about learning to become a better showrunner, whether he thinks there's a stigma associated with horror at award shows and why James Bond belongs on film — not TV.

Verbinski Scores "Cure for Wellness" Leads

8 April 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following the first three films in "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise along with "Rango" and "The Lone Ranger," filmmaker Gore Verbinski is returning to the horror genre which he previously dabbled in to great results with 2002's "The Ring".

Verbinski has reportedly cast Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth as the two leads in his upcoming supernatural horror tale "A Cure for Wellness" at New Regency. "Revolutionary Road" scribe Justin Haythe is writing the script.

DeHaan plays an employee who is sent to rescue his boss from a European 'wellness spa' but soon realizes he's trapped. He discovers that the facility has a more sinister purpose than just serving the health needs of its patients.

Goth would play a longtime patient who is oblivious to the spa director's dark designs for her. Filming on the project is slated to start in Europe in June.

Gore Verbinski Returns to Horror with A Cure For Wellness; Dane DeHaan to Star

8 April 2015 1:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While filmmaker Gore Verbinski is probably best known for helming the initial Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (those sequels are masterpieces compared to On Stranger Tides), he began as a sort of journeyman director with Mousehunt and The Mexican before hitting it big with The Ring. The 2002 film was a box office smash and scared the hell out of yours truly, and now the filmmaker is poised to return to the horror genre for the first time in over a decade. [caption id="attachment_299097" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Sony Pictures[/caption] We’ve known about A Cure for Wellness as a Verbinski project since last fall, but it is now firmed up as the filmmaker’s next movie as THR reports that Dane DeHaan and Mia Goth (Nymphomaniac) are set to star.

Gore Verbinski to Direct a Driverless Car Race Movie For Sony

Gore Verbinski may be best known for big, bombastic blockbusters, but every once in a while he surprises us with something smaller. Rango is a great example. His hit remake The Ring is another. And though the director hasn’t stepped behind the camera since the disaster of The Lone Ranger, the idea for his next movie comprises a bit of both impulses. It’s […]

Brad Pitt To Star In Untitled Romantic Thriller From Robert Zemeckis

6 February 2015 12:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount Pictures has announced today that one of their next top-shelf projects has locked in Brad Pitt to star with Robert Zemeckis set to direct. A co-op production that also includes Gk Films and New Regency, the movie has been described as a “sweeping romantic thriller” based on an original screenplay by Steve Knight.

For the screenwriter, this will no doubt come as welcome news. Knight’s latest theatrical title – Seventh Son – hasn’t exactly lit up the critical barometer nor the box office. The fact that two of the industry’s biggest names, Pitt and Zemeckis, are making one of his scripts is a big deal. After all, he also penned Locke and Eastern Promises, both solid character-based pieces, so this new talented crew ought to steer his newest script back on course.

Aside from the fact that the film is described as “epic” and “sweeping,” there’s not much else to go on. »

“Naruto” to appear at two McM Comic Con’s in 2015

30 January 2015 1:40 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

McM have this morning announced that Manchester and Glasgow will be playing host to much-loved ninja Naruto (well the actress who voices the character – not the actual character, that would be beyond the realms of even McM’s massive budgets) later this year!

Maile Flanagan, the voice of iconic anime hero Naruto Uzumaki, is to be a special guest at both July’s McM Manchester Comic Con and September’s McM Scotland Comic Con. As well as meeting fans and signing autographs, Maile will be taking part in on-stage panels at both events.

Johnny Depp’s Last Great Movie

22 January 2015 7:17 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Johnny Depp‘s latest movie, Mortdecai, is hitting theaters this weekend, and by all accounts it’s horrifically unenjoyable. Which you probably could have guessed. The trailer, the goggly-eyed posters and, hell, even the title with its superfluous T all pointed to self-parody without self-awareness. It shows Depp at his most rubbery, trying so damned hard to make a mustache wink that you could almost see him panting. That’s our consistent vision of the actor now, at least. A caricature who loves putting on funny hats or facial hair and acting absurd despite the silence coming from the crowd. In a way, that persona feels new, with every thinkpiece written about him tilting reverently toward a time in recent history when he wasn’t so desperate and cartoonish. When we loved him. When he was great. So I started wondering how long that’s actually been going on, which led me to question what his last »
