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, »

Rachel Weisz To Star In Snatchback

14 May 2015 9:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sorry, Dredd-heads, but it doesn’t look like director Pete Travis is waiting around in hopes of a green-light for a follow-up to his beloved but low-grossing 2012 comic-book adaptation. The helmer is now lining up kidnap thriller Snatchback, with Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz in the lead role.

Weisz (The Constant Gardener) will take on the role of Maureen Dabbagh, a real Virginia woman whose ex-husband kidnapped their two-year-old daughter and fled to the Middle East back in 1992. Dabbagh spent over 10 years tracking the pair across the volatile region before she finally got her daughter back.

In Snatchback, which Travis also scribed, the true story will get a rather Hollywood twist, with Dabbagh becoming a mercenary of sorts, embarking on dangerous missions to help other families to recover their kidnapped children from the Middle East while continuing her own search.

Weisz co-developed and will produce the project, which is currently »

Jeremy Renner Loves Hawkeye's 'F--k You Moment' in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

29 April 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The first "Avengers" movie was supposed to incorporate Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), a lethal sharpshooter who works for S.H.I.E.L.D. and who, after being briefly introduced in "Thor," would have taken a much larger role in the superhero team-up movie. But then, after being on-screen for about 15 seconds, the character was hypnotized by Loki into doing his evil bidding and ostensibly written out of the movie until the final action sequence in New York City. That's when Hawkeye really shined... the other two hours of the movie, not so much.

So it should delight and surprise just about everyone that Hawkeye pretty much steals the show in this week's "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age of Ultron." A second-run character in everyone's eyes, since he can't fly or turn into a giant green range monster, Hawkeye's humanity ends up being his true superpower and he not only gets the »

Jeremy Renner: Fatherhood "Kind of Screwed My Career"

15 April 2015 4:13 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Nothing else compares! Jeremy Renner has some pretty impressive movies on his resume — The Town, The Hurt Locker, The Avengers, American Hustle, and The Bourne Legacy, to name a few — but his favorite role to date is dad to daughter Ava, 2, his only child with estranged wife Sonni Pacheco.  Chatting with Ellen DeGeneres for an episode of her talk show airing Wednesday, April 15, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star joked that fatherhood had essentially ruined him for everything else in life.

Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Why Oscar Isaac Channeled Stanley Kubrick for 'Ex Machina' (Exclusive)

9 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are good science fiction movies, and there are science fiction movies that realign your perception of the world, while thrusting you into some new or otherworldly space, full of unfamiliar technology or biology. Alex Garland is in the business of making the latter. The British novelist breathed life into the zombie movie with his script for Danny Boyle's "28 Days Later," and took audiences to the far flung reaches of space with their second collaboration, "Sunshine" (if you haven't seen it, please correct the error of your ways -- it's fabulous). Garland also adapted a beloved novel for the cloning saga "Never Let Me Go" and an equally beloved cult comic book for "Dredd" (again: outstanding, especially in 3D).

This week, Garland makes his directorial debut with "Ex Machina," a twisty-turny little science fiction film that stars Domhnall Gleeson as Caleb, a coder for a Google-like monolith called Bluebook. »

‘Hunger Games’ Composer James Newton Howard to Receive Max Steiner Award

25 March 2015 1:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Newton Howard, the tireless film composer with more than 120 score credits and eight Oscar nominations, will receive the Max Steiner Award at the eighth annual Hollywood in Vienna event at Austria’s Vienna Concert Hall on Oct. 15-16.

Howard — whose scores in just the past three years include the quartet of “Hunger Games” movies, “Snow White and the Hunstman,” “Maleficent,” “The Bourne Legacy” and “Nightcrawler” — will follow in the footsteps of such past Steiner honorees as John Barry, Lalo Schifrin, Howard Shore and last year’s recipient, Randy Newman.

The award is named after the Austrian-born, Golden Age film composer behind such classics as “Gone With the Wind,” “Casablanca” and “King Kong.”

Howard is definitely one of the most versatile film composers of our time as he succeeds in writing both eerie classical mystery scores, uplifting comedy scores, electronic soundtracks as well as chart-winning songs,” said Hollywood in Vienna »

Sunny Deols Ghayal Returns to have Dan Bradley as the stunt co-ordinator

19 March 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

With Ghayal being a turning point in Sunny Deol's career, the action star decided to revive the memories and continue the film by making it a franchise of sorts. Though the actor has stayed mum over the turn of events related to the second installment, we hear that Sunny is making an extra effort to make Ghayal Returns, yet another landmark in his career. From shooting on real locations to hiring a Hollywood stunt co-ordinator, Ghayal Returns will be having a lot more novel elements compared to its prequel. Sunny Deol has roped in The Bourne Legacy fame Dan Bradley to create some unique action sequences for Ghayal Returns. Moreover, it is being said that, unlike the recent trend, Sunny wants to underplay in the stunt department and avoid over the top stunts. While the prequel had Meenakshi Sheshadri playing the female lead, Ghayal Returns will see Soha Ali Khan »

Kill The Messenger Review

3 March 2015 4:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Michael Cuesta

Cast: Jeremy Renner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Barry Pepper, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Andy Garcia, Jena Sims, Robert Patrick

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 112 minutes

Synopsis: A reporter becomes the victim of a smear campaign after exposing a link between CIA backed Contra rebels in Nicaragua, Nicaraguan drug trafficking and the outbreak of crack cocaine in America’s inner cities. 

The longer I cogitate on Michael Cuesta’s Kill The Messenger, the more I realise just how unobtrusively compelling this film truly is.

Inspired by the life of Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner) and his ‘Dark Alliance’ exposé on the explosion of crack cocaine in the United States (which inevitably ruined his career), the film draws attention to the power and reach of fourth and fifth estate journalism and to the subjective objectivism of its gatekeepers.

Having said all that, if you take the time to reach beyond this »

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) movie review: winged infamy

24 February 2015 9:43 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s all a bit satirical. Or maybe not. Look, over there, Shakespeare in a superhero cape! I’m “biast” (pro): like the director, love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It was one thing when Birdman was the scrappy little indie that could. (Never mind that it was an indie with a budget of $22 million and an A-list cast.) Then it was just a snooty pretentious film with an arty gimmick that hardly anyone had seen. But now it has been crowned as the very best movie of 2014 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science. The people who are the most Hollywood that people can be have officially spoken. And what they have said is, “We hate superhero movies. We hate the fans who make superhero movies huge. But we love your money, so thanks for that. »

'Nightcrawler' Director Talks 'Tsunami of Superhero Movies'

23 February 2015 8:22 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

To find truly original stories at the local cineplex, we've had to rely on independent film the past two decades, as Hollywood seems intend on force feeding the masses remakes, sequels and superhero movies. One person who thinks there are far too many Marvel and DC adventures flooding the market at this current time is Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy. Speaking out against masked vigilantes and their vice grip on Hollywood, the Nightcrawler director used his win for 'Best First Feature' at the 30th Annual Independent Spirit Awards to rally his filmmaking troops and thank the independent directors weathering the storm. From his podium, he screamed:

"Independent film, the foundation and everybody here today, I think are holdouts against a tsunami of superhero movies that have swept over this industry. We have survived and we have thrived and I think that's true spirit."

John Wick: The Most Kick@$$ Movie of 2014 You Probably Didn’t See

17 February 2015 4:23 PM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

John Wick has come to VOD and home video, and if you haven’t seen it, you really fucking should, seriously. Not since films like Equilibrium or A Better Tomorrow have I seen innovative “gun fu” executed onscreen with such passionate detail, and I’ll bet, neither have you. If I am preaching to the choir, you may feel free to get off here, if not then bear with me for a moment.

Before I go any further I should note that what prompted me to go on this tangent is that I’m truly tired of seeing entertaining movies going unnoticed due to weak marketing; that and I had asked almost all of my die hard action fan friends if they had seen John Wick and they either had not seen it or was otherwise unsure of which movie I was referring to.

John Wick is the result of »
