A Very Positive Quote Dominates The Latest Foxcatcher Poster

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Foxcatcher is still two weeks away from landing in theatres, and so in order to remind you that it’s the best film you’ll ever see, a brand new poster has arrived! It’s hardly new behaviour for a studio to brandish last minute marketing materials with quotations from positive early reviews, but it does detract from the serious visages of Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo. The three leads stand proud before some eagle-inspired artwork and generally look stoic. But don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself below.

The movie has garnered an enormous clutch of solid reviews after hitting up all of this year’s major film festivals. From Moneyball director Bennett Miller, it looks like we’re gonna be in store for a triptych of lifetime-best performances if the buzz is anything to go by. Tatum and Ruffalo star as »

New poster for Foxcatcher featuring Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony Classics has released a new poster for director Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) awards hopeful Foxcatcher, which showcases stars Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street), Steve Carell (Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues) and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers)…

When Olympic Gold Medal winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) is invited by wealthy heir John du Pont (Steve Carell) to move on to the du Pont estate and help form a team to train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics at his new state-of-the-art training facility, Schultz jumps at the opportunity, hoping to focus on his training and finally step out of the shadow of his revered brother, Dave (Mark Ruffalo). Driven by hidden needs, du Pont sees backing Schultz’s bid for Gold and the chance to “coach” a world-class wrestling team as an opportunity to gain the elusive respect of his peers and, more importantly, his disapproving mother (Vanessa Redgrave).

New Poster For Oscar Hopeful Foxcatcher Debuts

22 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo are featured in the new theatrical poster from Sony Pictures Classics’ Oscar-y film Foxcatcher.

Based on true events, director Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont and two champion wrestlers, Mark and Dave Schultz.

Having seen the film at the press screening this week, I can say Carell gives a chilling performance of du Pont and is the highlight of the film. Expect to hear his name, a lot, over upcoming awards season. Bennett Miller won Best Director at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival in May and the film has screened at the Telluride, Toronto, New York, and London film festivals.

28 October 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeff Robinov has hired a quartet of executives for his newly minted Studio 8 production company.

Studio 8 closed its distribution deal with Sony on Sept. 8 with plans to release six films a year. Robinov, the former Warner Bros. studio chief, said at that point that he expected to raise $1 billion from financiers and a partnership with China’s Fosun Group.

Shaun Williams has been hired as chief financial officer after serving as the senior VP of finance for Gk Films. Lindsey Bayman, Paramount’s former exec VP of motion picture business affairs, will run business affairs.

Mark Bakshi, Paramount’s former worldwide president of feature production, will oversee physical production. He served as executive producer on “Foxcatcher,” “World War Z” and “Moneyball” and supervised over 150 feature film productions at Paramount, including “Transformers,” the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, “Saving Private Ryan” and “Titanic.”

Kimberly LoCascio will oversee all aspects of visual effects, »

Studio 8 Hires Four, Including CFO, Production And Visual Effects Execs

28 October 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Studio 8 is quickly ramping up, hiring four more executives in both finance and production as it prepares its production slate that will see two movies the first year, four in the second and six in each of the next three, with budgets ranging from $45 million to $100 million-plus. Studio 8 CEO Jeff Robinov said last month that he had planned to hire 14-16 people and is making good on that word. The newest hires include Shaun Williams as his Chief Financial Officer. Williams previously worked at Gk Films where he oversaw day-to-day operations as Svp of Finance. The executive had been involved with Studio 8 since its beginnings when they began developing the overall business plan. He helped to structure the corporate credit facility.

Robinov and his new media company is backed by Shanghai-based China’s Fosun Group which also officially set up shop with Sony. Fosun is the largest privately-owned conglomerate in mainland China. »

58th BFI London Film Festival Review – Foxcatcher (2014)

22 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Foxcatcher, 2014.

Directed by Bennett Miller.

Starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall, and Vanessa Redgrave.

Synopsis:

Based on the true story of Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler whose relationship with sponsor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz would lead to unlikely circumstances.

Bennett Miller has slowly begun his ascent into the Premier League of Hollywood directors. His extraordinary work on Capote and Moneyball has lifted him in amongst a handful of film maestro’s that has made him a magnet for talent. And three years after his jaunt into the worlds of baseball, he is back with Foxcatcher, a film with a huge weight of expectation after a six-minute standing ovation at this year’s Cannes.

Once more with a Miller film, Foxcatcher tells the true story of the relationship between wrestling brothers Mark (Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Ruffalo) and wealthy wrestling fan/admirer »

Foxcatcher review: Steve Carell and Channing Tatum's chilling drama

20 October 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Bennett Miller; Screenwriter: E Max Frye, Dan Futterman; Starring: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller; Running time: 134 mins; Certificate: 15

Money can't buy you love, but can it earn you self-validation? It's a theme that's explored in the fascinating Foxcatcher, an involving tale based on a chilling true story that boasts enthralling, career-changing performances from Channing Tatum and Steve Carell.

Directed with great measure and restraint by Moneyball's Bennett Miller, Foxcatcher revolves around depressed Olympic wrestling champion Mark Schultz (Tatum) and his relationship with mega-wealthy loner John Du Pont (Carell). It's John's dream to put together a wrestling team to compete in the next Olympics and he manages to recruit Mark, although his brother and fellow wrestler Dave (Mark Ruffalo) proves harder to catch.

As the relationship between the trio develops, often in unhealthy ways, we're gripped by what John's underlying motivations for his apparent altruism might be. »

Box Office Report: Fury Rolls Past Gone Girl For #1 Spot

19 October 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was the fourth straight weekend where an R-rated drama took the box office crown, as the World War II thriller Fury earned an estimated $23.5 million. This marked a solid opening for star Brad Pitt and was slightly higher than similar star-studded war titles The Monuments Men ($22 million) and Valkyrie ($21 million over the weekend, after a Thursday Christmas Day opening). As for Pitt, it was a better debut than Moneyball ($19.5 million); however, it was noticeably behind the opening of another war film starring the actor as the leader of a group of soldiers, Inglourious Basterds ($38 million).

Moving forward, Fury is likely to continue bringing in good money. There is little competition for adults in the coming weeks, with the exception of expanding independent titles like Birdman and St. Vincent, and the A- CinemaScore means audiences are liking what they see. The film saw only a 3% jump from Friday to Saturday, »

Like 'Fury'? Want More Brad Pitt? Here Are His 5 Best Performances

18 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

1. Moneyball (2011) Strutting through Bennett Miller's fact-based comedy about baseball economics, Pitt, as Oakland Athletics manager Billy Beane, is in glorious control of his leading-man powers. The performance is mellow, rhythmically alive and deeply felt -- like a great jazz solo. See more Highly Paid Film Stars 2. The Tree of Life (2011) Pitt could have turned the stern, authoritarian 1950s Texas father into the villain of Terrence Malick's metaphysical masterpiece. Instead, the actor makes him both threatening and needy, an almost iconic -- but never less than human -- vision of wounded American masculinity. 3. 12 Monkeys (1995) Pitt plays

The Past, Present, and Future of Real-Time Films Part One

17 October 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

What do film directors Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Agnès Varda, Robert Wise, Fred Zinnemann, Luis Buñuel, Alain Resnais, Roman Polanski, Sidney Lumet, Robert Altman, Louis Malle, Richard Linklater, Tom Tykwer, Alexander Sokurov, Paul Greengrass, Song Il-Gon, Alfonso Cuarón, and Alejandro Iñárritu have in common? More specifically, what type of film have they directed, setting them apart from fewer than 50 of their filmmaking peers? Sorry, “comedy” or “drama” isn’t right. If you’ve looked at this article’s headline, you’ve probably already guessed that the answer is that they’ve all made “real-time” films, or films that seemed to take about as long as their running time.

The real-time film has long been a sub-genre without much critical attention, but the time of the real-time film has come. Cuarón’s Gravity (2013), which was shot and edited so as to seem like a real-time film, floated away with the most 2014 Oscars, »

Brad Pitt’s Hair Length Is the Most Important Part of His Film Career

17 October 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

When it comes to Brad Pitt’s hair, it’s almost as popular as the actor himself. Over the past three decades, Pitt has built a brand around his quiet acting style, sexy build, and gorgeous hair. While he looks stunning with a buzz cut, and seriously handsome with a classic ‘do, it’s his long hair that has caused debate. Is Pitt better or worse looking with long hair? And are the movies he’s in with said long hair good or bad? Sure, the second question doesn’t come up as much but it’s a fair one to ask. Pitt with long hair in The Counselor is one unfortunate combination.

Check out our matrix of Pitt’s career as it relates to the length of his hair. It’s safe to say that the actor has had the most hits or misses when he grows things down to his shoulders. »

Lff 2014: Foxcatcher Review

17 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Bennett Miller.

Starring: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Vanessa Redgrave.

Running Time: 135 Minutes

Synopsis: A riveting, tense and unsettling exploration of the power of money and obsession from the acclaimed director of Capote and Moneyball.

 

Foxcatcher is pretty good. Oddly, that’s all. It’s just sort of there, like a lifeless planet being orbited by the dazzling satellites of Carell, Tatum and Ruffalo. They shine down upon a rock on which little else happens.

Here is the true life story of one of America’s wealthiest men and self-styled patriot, John du Pont (Carell) who takes Olympic wrestling gold medalist Mark Schultz (Tatum) under his wing to lead a team of wrestlers to further glory and national pride. Schultz’s growing intensity, the arrival of his brother and trainer Dave (Ruffalo) and du Pont’s increasingly erratic behaviour cause their world to unravel with tragic results. Sort of. »

17 October 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Since breaking out over 20 years ago in "Thelma & Louise," Brad Pitt has been difficult to miss.

After landing his place in cinematic history as a hunky (and shirtless) criminal, Pitt's career blossomed with starring roles in critical and box office hits alike, such as "A River Runs Through It" (1992), "Seven" (1995), and "12 Monkeys" (1995) -- just to name a few. In the past two decades, Pitt has become one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but his role has expanded beyond just acting. In only the past few years, he's produced two Best Picture nominated films, "Moneyball" (2011) and "12 Years a Slave" (2013). This fall, he's back in front of the camera leading his battle-hardened platoon into Nazi Germany in "Fury."

From his early days in Missouri to his unlikely romances, here are 35 things you probably don't know about Brad Pitt.

1. Brad Pitt was born December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, Oklahoma to Jane Hillhouse and William Pitt.

2. His mother was a school counselor, »

Forecast: 'Fury' to Invade Top Spot This Weekend

16 October 2014 5:48 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

World War II tank movie Fury will almost certainly take the top spot away from two-time winner Gone Girl this weekend. Meanwhile, The Book of Life and The Best of Me are also opening nationwide.Playing at 3,173 theaters, Fury stars Brad Pitt as the leader of an American tank crew making their way through Germany as the second World War draws to a close.With the exception of 2012's Killing Them Softly*which was an odd, dark crime drama*Pitt has been on a strong run lately as a leading man. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Inglourious Basterds and World War Z all earned over $120 million at the domestic box office, while Moneyball was one of the highest-grossing baseball movies ever with $75.6 million.World War II movies have a mixed track record, though the last few installments have done fairly well.

Christian Bale May Be Down to Play Steve Jobs Again, Here's Why

15 October 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

He was believed to be in. Then he basically bowed out (when the director he was paired with exited the project). Now reports have Christian Bale back in the conversation to play the late tech guru Steve Jobs for a planned biopic. The Dark Knight star is in negotiations to play Steve Jobs in a biopic that will be directed by Danny Boyle. The 127 Hours director reportedly wanted to reteam with Leonardo DiCaprio for the gig. The two worked on The Beach back in 2000, and have been looking for a project on which to collaborate. Variety now reports that Bale would like to shoot the picture in the Spring. As if the idea of Christian Bale and Danny Boyle working on a movie wasn.t tantalizing enough, the duo will be adapting a screenplay by Aaron Sorkin, Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Social Network, Moneyball, A Few Good Men and television »

Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo Star In New Foxcatcher Trailer And Photos

15 October 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sony Pictures Classics has sent us the new theatrical trailer and photos from director Bennett Miller’s film Foxcatcher, starring Steve Carell, Channing TatumMark RuffaloVanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller and Anthony Michael Hall.

Based on true events, Foxcatcher tells the dark and fascinating story of the unlikely and ultimately tragic relationship between eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont and two champion wrestlers, Mark and Dave Schultz.

Foxcatcher is a rich and moving story of brotherly love, misguided loyalty and the corruption and emotional bankruptcy that can accompany great power and wealth. As with Academy Award nominee Bennett Miller’s previous feature films, Capote and Moneyball, he explores large themes in society through his complex character portraits of real people.

Steve Carell’s fans will be surprised to see him in a role as dark and challenging as John du Pont, a man of immense wealth and power whose downward spiral culminates in murder and imprisonment. »

Spotlight on the Stars: Brad Pitt

15 October 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of Hollywood’s absolute bigger stars. He’s about as A-list as the A-list gets…the name? Well, Brad Pitt of course. Not only is he a movie star with all capital letters (Movie Star!) and a top tier celebrity, he’s also developed into one of the industry’s best and most interesting actors as well. Pitt is the type of star that doesn’t rest on his laurels and often seems to attach himself to challenging material, something that will win the man an acting Oscar one day (he already won his first one last year for helping to produce Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave). As high as he’s soared already, the best could still be to come. Pitt got his noticeable start in the business (after some uncredited acting jobs on »
