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.

Willem Dafoe Joins Matt Damon in 'The Great Wall'

13 February 2015 8:48 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Willem Dafoe has signed on to join Matt Damon in Legendary East's The Great Wall. Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal was in talks to join the cast in December, but The Hollywood Reporter's story does not mention that he is involved, so it's possible he dropped out. No details were given for Willem Dafoe's character, but he may be taking over the role that Bryan Cranston was once in talks for before departing the project.

The story follows a soldier (Matt Damon) who is part of a group of mercenaries travelling to China on a mission to bring gunpowder back to Europe. His group is attacked by a number of mythical creatures, as they find themselves caught in the middle of a war between a secret warrior clan and these beasts. Production is scheduled to start this April in China.

Interview: Dan Gilroy Talks 'Nightcrawler,' The Death Of The Mid-Sized Film, 'Bourne Legacy' And More

12 February 2015 9:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Fans of challenging, pitch-black filmmaking were rewarded last year by the dazzling "Nightcrawler," a film that saw nice guy Jake Gyllenhaal take up a cheap digital camcorder and chase around car accidents and hijackings in the twilight of Los Angeles as a heat-seeking freelance journalist. It was undoubtedly one of the more original, energetic cinematic confections of the past year, and if you missed it, you're getting your chance to catch up, since it is making its debut on home video this week. To mark the occasion, we recently chatted with Dan Gilroy, who made his feature directorial debut with "Nightcrawler" after years of being one of Hollywood's most in-demand screenwriters. We asked him about comments that his brother, writer/director Tony Gilroy (who made "Michael Clayton," "Duplicity" and "The Bourne Legacy") has made about the mid-sized movie being eradicated from Hollywood, quizzed him on the status of the »

Stephen King’s Cell Coming To The Big Screen – Stars John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson

5 February 2015 1:47 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Clarius Entertainment has acquired Us rights to Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company’s thriller Cell starring John Cusack (upcoming Love & Mercy, Lee DanielsThe Butler) and Oscar-nominated Samuel L. Jackson (upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service, Django Unchained).

The film is based on the best-selling apocalyptic novel by Stephen King.

When a powerful signal is broadcast across mobile networks worldwide, cell phone users’ minds are instantly and dangerously re-programmed. Heading north through New England in search of his wife and son, Clay Riddell (Cusack) is joined by a group of survivors hoping to fend off the bloodthirsty and hyper-connected “phoners.”

Set to be a wide theatrical release later this year, Cell also stars Isabelle Fuhrman (The Hunger Games) and Golden Globe winner Stacy Keach (Nebraska, The Bourne Legacy).

The film is directed by Tod “Kip” Williams (Paranormal Activity 2). The announcement was made today by the film’s producers Michael Benaroya and Richard Saperstein. »

Stephen King’s Cell Movie Acquired for Us Distribution, New Image Revealed

5 February 2015 11:18 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Get ready stateside filmgoers, because the “phoners” (aka “crazies”) are coming to the Us. Stephen King fans know that the master of macabre doesn’t like using cell phones. His 2006 novel, Cell, is a cautionary tale about what can go wrong by pressing portable phones to our ears and keeping them close at hand in our pockets, and its unflinching subject matter contains flocks of murderous lunatics that would be right at home in Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, George A. Romero’s The Crazies, or Simon Clark’s Blood Crazy.

We knew this unique King novel was getting the adaptation treatment, with King co-writing the screenplay and John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson in the lead roles, but we’re now one big step closer to seeing it on the silver screen, as Clarius Entertainment has acquired the Us rights to the movie.

Slated to hit theaters this year, »

Exploring the Gilroy Brothers' 'Nightcrawler' Blu-ray Audio Commentary

30 January 2015 11:51 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Blu-ray edition of writer/director Dan Gilroy's Nightcrawler streets on February 10 (available to stream right now) and it doesn't come with a wealth of features, but the audio commentary featuring Dan and his brothers Tony Gilroy, who served as producer, and John Gilroy, who served as the film's editor, is a fascinating listen. I took several notes while listening to the track but there are a couple things I have to say first, 1.) since they are brothers they sound very much alike and it's often difficult to tell them apart so don't expect too many direct quotes and 2.) while I can relay a lot of what I took away from the commentary it really stands as one you ought to listen to for yourself to entirely grasp everything they say. There is a very fluid motion to the conversation and frequently they'll discuss something entirely different from the »

Could Dan Gilroy Become the Sixth Director Oscar-Nommed for First Feature?

13 January 2015 6:56 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Screenwriter Dan Gilroy made his directorial this year with Nightcrawler, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a corrupt freelance crime reporter who will do anything to get a story. Since the film’s premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, it’s garnered Oscar buzz and has been compared to best picture winner Crash (2004).  It holds a 95 percent positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes, was named one of AFI’s top 10 films of the year and received four BAFTA nominations, as well as three Critics’ Choice Awards. Gyllenhaal has earned Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Critics’ Choice acting nominations. If Gilroy were to earn a nomination for best director, like Crash did, he would become the sixth director in the 21st century to achieve that accolade.

Tony Gilroy, Dan’s older brother, earned his first Oscar nomination for Michael Clayton (2007), his directorial debut. He was also nominated for best original screenplay. »

Almost as if they were celebrating something, Netflix have chosen Golden Globes time to unleash a new trailer for the incoming new season of House Of Cards. Prepare to be eyeballed by Kevin Spacey as he asks us to consider what takes real courage...Spacey, as you'll probably know by now, walked away with the Golden Globe for Best Actor In A TV Series, for his continuing portrayal of the ruthless and Machiavellian democrat VP (until recently, they said spoilerifically...) Frank Underwood."This is just the beginning of my revenge." he said in Underwood-style acceptance. "This is the eighth time I've been nominated. I can't fucking believe I won."Tony Gilroy, the man behind The Bourne Legacy, Michael Clayton and the Us version of State Of Play, joined House Of Cards' behind-the-scenes team this year as a consultant, so expect Jeremy Renner to show up as an assassin.

What Is Jeremy Renner's Future In The Bourne Franchise?

11 January 2015 2:05 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As soon as it was announced that Matt Damon will be returning to the Bourne franchise in the untitled Bourne 5, fans have been wondering what that means for Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross from The Bourne Legacy. Will that character be simply erased from the fictional world? Will he get another adventure of his own somewhere down the line? Or will he actually get to be a part of an Avengers-style team-up that sees him working with Damon's Jason Bourne? According to producer Frank Marshall, it's mostly Option B, with a chance of Option C. Marshall - who has been an executive producer on the Bourne franchise since it launched with The Bourne Identity in 2002 - recently sat down for an interview with Collider, and when asked if Jeremy Renner was still going to be a part of the franchise going forward, the filmmaker firmly confirmed that he will be. »

Bourne film will not include Matt Damon, Jeremy Renner crossover

10 January 2015 10:05 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Bourne producer Frank Marshall has suggested that Aaron Cross will not team up with Jason Bourne in the next movie.

Damon is returning to the thriller series having played CIA assassin Bourne in the first three movies, while Jeremy Renner starred as Cross in The Bourne Legacy.

Marshall told Collider when asked about a potential crossover: "We don't have plans for that. You never know. I never say never. But that's not the plan. They're on separate tracks.

"It was really the challenge of finding the story. If you look back five or six years ago, when we were maybe going on, we just didn't have a story. It's taken this long for us to come up with a story that everybody responded to."

Marshall appears to have changed his opinion, having previously stated in the lead-up to The Bourne Legacy's release: "You see there are several different [special ops] programmes »

Jeremy Renner & Matt Damon's 'Bourne' Franchises Won't Meet

9 January 2015 1:16 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Ever since it was revealed that Matt Damon was returning to the Jason Bourne franchise with director Paul Greengrass behind the camera again, fans were already hoping that there would be some kind of cross over with The Bourne Legacy franchise that Jeremy Renner stepped into in 2012. However, if producer Frank Marshall is to be believed, that may not happen at all. Though Marshall once said that Damon and Renner may be able to team up sometime down the road, a conversation with Collider indicated a complete 180 on that prospect happening as the producer says, "We don’t have plans for that." Read on! Of course, Marshall doesn't close the door entirely as he continues, "You never know. I never say never. But that’s not the plan. They’re on separate tracks." In a way that makes sense, but since both Aaron Cross and Jason Bourne have turned on »

No "Bourne" Crossover, "Goonies 2" Update

9 January 2015 11:53 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Producer Frank Marshall is out doing press this week at the TCA Winter Press Tour and has spoken about both the next film in the Jason Bourne franchise, as well as the long-gestating sequel to the beloved family adventure film "The Goonies".

As we know, the next 'Bourne' film sees both Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass return to the franchise, and as a result the next film featuring Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross character from "The Bourne Legacy" is being pushed back.

Collider spoke with Marshall and asked if there is any plans for Renner's Cross to crossover with Damon's Bourne. Marshall says: "We don't have plans for that. You never know. I never say never. But that's not the plan. They're on separate tracks."

Marshall says the main reason Damon and Greengrass are returning is that they now have a story everyone is keen to do: "It was »

'Bourne 5' Won't Bring Damon and Renner Together

9 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, Universal Pictures shifted the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel from July 15, 2016 to July 29, 2016, which brings Matt Damon back as Jason Bourne for the first time since 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum. The actor had stated for years that he will not revisit the role unless Paul Greengrass comes back to direct, but back in September, Universal announced that this long-awaited sequel is finally happening. Ever since then, fans have been wondering if the studio plans on showcasing both Matt Damon's Jason Bourne and Jeremy Renner's Aaron Cross from 2012's The Bourne Legacy in the same movie, since it isn't clear what is happening with the Untitled Jeremy Renner Bourne Sequel. During a new interview with Collider, producer Frank Marshall set the record straight, revealing that they have no plans to bring Jason Bourne and Aaron Cross together.

There Are No Plans for a Bourne Crossover With Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner

9 January 2015 9:59 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Two franchises starring Jeremy Renner are apparently going in opposite directions regarding what they want to do with the actor. For The Avengers, Renner is likely to never get a solo installment with his Marvel character, Hawkeye. He’s going to just be one of the ensemble in the big Avengers-title crossover blockbusters, and maybe he’ll show up on a future episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (if my guess about his recent Twitter tease is correct) or possibly a one-off short film at the very least. Then there’s the Bourne franchise, which he temporarily took over from Matt Damon until Damon announced his return for another sequel. We kept hearing that Renner’s character from the spin-off The Bourne Legacy would be in more movies, but once Damon’s next installment became a reality there was more assumption that the two stars would wind up sharing the screen in a crossover. “We »
