Ciara McAvoy: The Hollywood Interview

Sweet Painting Lady: Ciara McAvoy Resurrects the Art of the Movie Poster

By Alex Simon

“Art is not just a part of my life. It Is my life. It gives me breath. We are eternally entwined.” This is the mantra of Scottish artist Ciara McAvoy, a painter renowned for her stunning oil work, which the Glasgow-born artist has used to create some of the most iconic movie posters in modern times. Inspired by her French grandfather, a pre-ww II portraitist who gained fame at Montmartre, McAvoy’s interest in drawing and painting film-related subjects began after her first viewing of Star Wars as a child.

“I started drawing at eight and painted and sold my first oil, entitled Cops, when I was only twelve years old, so I guess I can say that I was born to be an artist," McAvoy recalled in a 2014 interview with David Bateman of Stv Glasgow. »

Filming Begins on Doug Liman’s Mena, Starring Tom Cruise; Full Cast Revealed

27 May 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal Pictures announced today that principal photography is underway in Georgia on director Doug Liman’s “international escapade” Mena. The film reunites Liman with his Edge of Tomorrow star Tom Cruise as it tells the true story of Barry Seal, a hustler and pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history. Liman had this to say about his interest in the source material: “I love stories of improbable heroes working against the system, and Barry Seal took the government, and our country, for an unbelievable ride. Interpreting his story has the makings for an entertaining film that is equal parts satire, suspense and comedy—and always surprising.” [caption id="attachment_217084" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Paramount Pictures[/caption] Gary Spinelli penned the initial draft of the script, but Universal’s press release does not have final screenwriting credits. Liman is known for finding his way as he goes throughout production, »

Jesse Plemons Joins Tom Cruise in ‘Mena’

27 May 2015 11:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jesse Plemons, Caleb Landry Jones, Jayma Mays and Benito Martinez have joined Tom Cruise’s suspense-comedy “Mena,” with director Doug Liman starting shooting in Georgia.

Cruise is portraying Barry Seal, a hustler and Twa pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. history — one that spawned the birth of the Medellin cartel and eventually almost brought down the Reagan White House through the Iran Contra scandal.

“I love stories of improbable heroes working against the system, and Barry Seal took the government, and our country, for an unbelievable ride,” said Liman.  “Interpreting his story has the makings for an entertaining film that is equal parts satire, suspense and comedy — and always surprising.”

Variety reported last month that Domhnall Gleeson (“Unbroken”) had been cast opposite Cruise and Sarah Wright in “Mena.” E. Roger Mitchell (“Selma”), Lola Kirke and Alejandro Edda have also joined the cast. »

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen reboot in development at 20th Century Fox

27 May 2015 1:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I’m not sure how Alan Moore will feel about this one (we can all make an educated guess) but this is one reboot that I definitely do want to see happen. According to The Tracking Board 20th Century Fox are keen to make a big screen adaptation reboot of one of Alan Moore’s best work to date, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Back in 2003 a feature film loosely based on the comic book series starring Sean Connery was considered a huge failure (even though it made a small profit) and was critically panned by movie and comic-book enthusiasts alike. In fact the movie got slated so badly that it’s the main reason cited why Connery retired from acting shortly after it’s release.

Directed by Stephen Norrington (Blade) and also starring Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), Stuart Townsend (Elementary) and Peta Wilson (La Femme Nikita), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen »

New X-men: Apocalypse Set Photo Teases Caliban

26 May 2015 12:51 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In keeping with his steady stream of images from the set, filmmaker Bryan Singer has shared a new picture from the Vancouver soundstages of X-Men: Apocalypse teasing the appearance of a mutant we haven’t yet seen in the long-running film franchise. In the caption for the photo of the dimly lit set, Singer says he’s in the midst of shooting Caliban’s place of “business”. Caliban is an albino mutant who first appeared in the comics in 1981 and has the ability to track other mutants. However, it’s Caliban’s connection to X-Men: Apocalypse villain Apocalypse (played by Oscar Isaac) that probably explains his appearance in the film. In comics lore, Caliban is augmented by Apocalypse to become one of the supervillain’s four horsemen (of the apocalypse fame, obviously), so it’s a safe bet that he’ll play an integral role in the plot. However, since »

John Williams' Score For The Force Awakens Will Reference The Classic Themes

26 May 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Perhaps one of the most disappointing things about movie sequels is the composer's tendency not to use the score from the original movie - or at least try and 'jazz it up' in some way. The X-Men franchise and the McU are arguably both guilty of this crime, and while it has occasionally lead to the creation of even greater scores (see 2011's X-Men: First Class), there's something a little disheartening about not being to hear the iconic soundtrack from the original film. John Williams' score for Star Wars is arguably the most iconic soundtrack of them all. It made its debut in 1977 with A New Hope, and has since continued to feature throughout the saga's many installments - forming an integral part of Star Wars franchise. Thankfully, it seems this trend will continue on this December with The Force Awakens. Williams recently told Vanity Fair that several fan-favorite »

Kingsman: The Secret Service HD Release Review

26 May 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service, in the words of director Matthew Vaughn, is a kind of post-modern love letter to spy movies, and that’s about as accurate a description of the effort as you’re going to get. Every move is clearly aimed at not only the vision and style of early Bond and his ilk, but pulls in the kind of post-modern storytelling that made Kick-Ass the curious wunderfilm it is.

Taron Egerton plays Gary “Eggsy” Unwin, a clever enough lad who is a victim of his circumstances. Harry Hart (Colin Firth), aka Galahad, bails Eggsy out of jail, and makes him a very unique offer. A member of a sort of double-super-secret spy organization, Hart sees something in Eggsy, and thinks he could be just the candidate to join the ranks of the spy elite.

We then get to take a ride through spy school, as several candidates »

Ryan Reynolds says a Wolverine cameo in Deadpool depends on scheduling

26 May 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

If there has been one constant in the X-Men movies, it is Hugh Jackman. The actor has appeared in every single movie about the Marvel mutants since the Bryan Singer original, including a cameo in X-men: First Class. It was also in his first solo film, X-men Origins: Wolverine, that we got our first version of Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds. Now, with Reynolds fixing that cinematic atrocity and giving us the Deadpool we deserve, wouldn't it be nice to have Jackman involved? If it »

Will Hugh Jackman's Wolverine Cameo In Deadpool? Ryan Reynolds Weighs In

25 May 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Hugh Jackman has taken on a leading role in every X-Men movie apart from X-Men: First Class. Even then he made a cameo appearance though, so will we see the fan-favourite Wolverine actor make an appearance in Deadpool next year? It's already been confirmed that The Wolverine 3 will be the final time he plays the character, while his association with X-Men: Apocalypse isn't confirmed either was as of right now (though he is obviously expected to appear in some form).  Talking to News.com.au, Ryan Reynolds was asked if he'll be reuniting with his X-Men Origins: Wolverine co-star in some form, and it sounds like it might happen. "God I hope so, that would be really nice. I dunno, we’ll see. It seems like he’s open to it, but it’s gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else." Here's hoping Jackman can find his »

Beyond Fright Review: Forbidden Empire

25 May 2015 3:42 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Coming at viewers like a freight train of visually stimulating surroundings and a story that doesn’t slow down for a single second, Oleg Stepchenko’s Forbidden Empire gives fans of fantasy adventure films one hefty dose of entertainment. A film filled to the absolutely brim with computer-generated effects, but not in a way that takes you from the story of X-men: First Class star Jason Flemyng’s Dzhonatan Grin character, an English cartographer who unfortunately finds himself in the legendary Transylvania and in the middle of a dark and fantastical series of events.

What’s very apparent from the beginning of Forbidden Empire is how much of a fantasy and adventure film the audiences is in store for. Filled with everything from demons and monsters to Ukrainian vikings, it’s a film that hits the ground running, and while it might not reinvent the adventure film genre wheel, there »

Living Through Oblivion: Safdie Bros. Lens Devastating Tale of Desperation and Depravity on the Streets of NYC

The story of how the directorial brothers Benny and Joshua Safdie found their muse and star, Arielle Holmes, for their latest feature seems like a shadowy tale from a gritty Craigslist missed connection. After Joshua and their producer Sebastian Bear-McClard spotted her on a subway platform while working undercover for research on an abandoned genre film, they approached her. A subsequent series of no call, no shows seemed like a dead end, but then Holmes reached out, admitting that she’d been homeless, out of touch and had recently attempted to take her own life and was just recently released from the hospital.

Having dropped out of school at 15 to become a homeless heroin junky running the mean streets of New York City, Holmes’s tale of depravity and desperation struck the Safdie’s with a fascinating idea. »

Josh Trank Denies 'Fantastic Four' Rumors of Reshoots & Test Screenings

25 May 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's hard not to feel some measure of sympathy for Fantastic Four reboot director Josh Trank. His name has been dragged through the mud following his firing off the Star Wars spin-off and now a new rumor making the rounds suggests X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn recently shot a round of reshoots. Trank remained quiet while the first round of accusations flew, probably the best decision if he doesn't want to stir the Hollywood pot too much, but he did take to Twitter to deny the Vaughn rumors stating he's never met Vaughn in person and that there's only ever been one director on Fantastic Four, himself. He also denies reports of poor test screenings that resulted in the rumored Vaughn-shot reshoots. "Next time you read an article, whether it's Hollywood Reporter or SuperheroNews," Trank added in one final tweet. "If they aren't naming sources: it's probably bullsh*t. »

Fantastic Four International Trailer Brings New Footage; Josh Trank Denies Reshoot Rumors

25 May 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new Fantastic Four international trailer has gone online, and it contains some flashes of fresh footage.   Although the trailer is largely similar to the most recent U.S. one, there are some flashes of the emotional side of the story, which is Reed Richards’ (Miles Teller) desire to “fix his friends”. There will probably be another trailer in about a month or so that delves deep into the plot, but at this point, I think they’ve struck the right balance with teasing out the story but not giving away too much. Meanwhile, director Josh Trank is trying to do a bit of damage control. His career recently took a hit when he left the second Star Wars spinoff because word was he couldn’t hack it on the set of Fantastic Four. Now word has leaked that X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn has been hired to do reshoots last month, »

‘Tomorrowland’ Earns $725,000, ‘Poltergeist’ Scares Up $1.4 Million on Thursday Night

22 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Disney’s “Tomorrowland” has opened with $725,000 in Thursday night preview screenings at 701 locations in the U.S., while MGM-Fox’s “Poltergeist” has scared up $1.4 million at 2,500 sites.

Disney opted to limit the Thursday showings of the George Clooney sci-fier to what it dubbed “movie palaces” in order to highlight director Brad Bird’s vision. It noted that “Tomorrowland” scored a $1,077 theatre average, which would have given it $2.7 million had it played on 2,500 screens and $3.2 million if it had been launched at 3,000 theaters — placing it in the same range as “World War Z” and “Tron: Legacy” with $3.6 million, “X-Men: First Class” at $3.3 million, “Inception” at $3 million, and “Interstellar at $2.7 million.

Tomorrowland,” which carries a $180 million price tag, opens Friday at 3,972 U.S. locations. It’s on track to debut to $40 million for the three-day weekend and around $50 million for the four-day period. “Tomorrowland” also opens in 65 foreign markets.
