Weekend Box Office Preview: ‘Sully’ Holds, But ‘Blair Witch’ Might Take Off

15 September 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Blair Witch” (Lionsgate), the second sequel to the groundbreaking 1999 low-budget horror smash, looks to have the best chance to top Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” (Warner Bros.) for #1 this weekend. “Sully” has the edge against an eclectic slate of familiar follow-ups to prior hits.

With “Sully” included, the weekend showcases three Oscar-winning directors —Clint Eastwood, Oliver Stone (“Snowden,” Open Road) and Ron Howard (limited release “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week,” Abramorama)—plus “Bridget Jones’s Baby” (Universal), starring Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger, taking a third pass on her best-known role.

The weekend could be hard-pressed to equal its equivalent last year, when “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Black Mass” combined open to $53 million, well ahead of what this weekend promises. But “Sully” might push the Top Ten weekend total close to 2015’s $93 million.

That would keep pace with the 5% year to date uptick still in play. But this week’s »

Pilot for Jcvd's Ridiculously Farcical Action Comedy Jean-claude Van Johnson is a Giant Leap Forward in the Actor's Career. Watch and Vote!

19 August 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

"Maybe you’ve seen TimeCop, which is like Looper, starring Bruce Willis but like a million times better." Guess who's back? Back again.  It’s no secret I’m the biggest Jean-Claude Van Damme fan in the world. If you think you have a one-up on me, meet me at the Kumite. (Caveat: Must be under 5’5’’ and weight less than 140 pounds.)  Jcvd has seen glory and hell in his lifetime, and over the last few years, approaching his golden years, he’s having the time of his life.  He gained critical acclaimed for his honest, poignant portrayal of himself in the terrific Jcvd (that monologue, man. Deep.) This film blew fans and critics alike away — to date, he’s the only action star to acknowledge his faults on film and...

Amazon Pilot Reviews: ‘The Tick,’ Jill Soloway’s ‘I Love Dick’ & ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson,’ Ranked

19 August 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jean-Claude Van Johnson

“’Timecop’ is like ‘Looper’ with Bruce Willis, but a million times better,” is just one of the gems spoken in “Jean-Claude Van Johnson” which is as gloriously ridiculous as its title.

What the Amazon pilot lacks in plot — action star Jean-Claude Van Damme comes out of retirement to act as a private contractor specializing in kicking ass and doing the splits — it makes up for with indiscriminate jabs at everything and anyone, including its star, Hollywood, pretentious foodies and even America’s Undulating Beefcake, Channing Tatum. A surprising appearance by Phylicia Rashad, who gamely plays Jean-Claude’s agent, is a comic revelation. She delivers the most absurd movie pitches with such enthusiasm that we’re ready to sign up for the “P.F. Chang’s” biopic ourselves.

The only real disappointment is the lackluster treatment of Jean-Claude’s love interest Vanessa (Kat Foster), who isn’t given much to work with story-wise. »

Interview: The Mind’S Eye Writer/Director Joe Begos on the Importance of Making Movies He Wants to See & More

4 August 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

With just two features under his directorial belt, writer/director Joe Begos has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting genre filmmakers working on the independent level. His directorial debut, Almost Human, was a stunning sci-fi shocker and his newest project, The Mind’s Eye, is a balls-out telekinetic war that features some insane practical effects and performances from the likes of Graham Skipper (Almost Human, Tales of Halloween), Lauren Ashley Carter (Jug Face, Darling), Noah Segan (Looper, Starry Eyes), Larry Fessenden (We Are Still Here, Late Phases), and Jeremy Gardner (The Battery, Spring).

Daily Dead recently spoke with Begos about his approach to The Mind’s Eye, and the filmmaker discussed what inspired his second feature, the importance of working with the right people and making movies that he wants to see as a genre fan, why he’ll always champion practical effects, and more.

Rian Johnson had his cast watch these 6 films before shooting Episode VIII

19 July 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There's no doubts that The Force Awakens was very reminiscent of the original Star Wars, for better and for worse, and I think it's safe to say that fans are really looking forward to Rian Johnson (Looper) bringing something different to the saga. While great films inspire all filmmakers, Johnson seems to have a very specific vibe he's aiming for with his Episode VIII. He recently revealed a list of six films that he... Read More »

Alden Ehrenreich to play young Han Solo in Star Wars prequel

In what even co-directors Phillip Lord and Chris Miller referred to as the “worst kept secret in Hollywood”, the Disney certified, official reveal of the actor to play the young Han Solo in the upcoming standalone Star Wars film occurred on the final day of the Star Wars Celebration fan event in London, England.

Dubbed “future filmmakers”, the event saw the directors of The Lego Movie (Lord and Miller) flanked by Episode 8 helmer Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) as they brought Alden Enrenreich on stage to rapturous applause!

Ehrenreich was discovered by Francis Ford Coppola for 2009’s Tetro and has since made appearances in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine and Park Chan-wook’s Stoker but is most recognized for his last role as the bumbling Hobie »

Star Wars Celebration 2016: What we learned

Star Wars Celebration 2016: What we learnedStar Wars Celebration 2016: What we learnedJason Gorber7/18/2016 10:45:00 Am

Back when George Lucas announced that he was selling his company to Disney and entrusting his vision to a new generation of filmmakers, the director who I initially championed to have a crack at a Star Wars film was Rian Johnson. His film Looper proves to be a wonderful example of how to balance sophisticated narrative, swashbuckling adventure and wry, sardonic humour all in one gloriously visual package.

Johnson’s previous films like Brick gained him a cult following among enthusiasts, but perhaps his most watched work are the several "Breaking Bad" episodes he directed to great acclaim, including “Fly”, a memorable, Hitchcockian episode where an errant pest disrupts the protagonists as they cook up their illicit goods. John Boyega described the shoot as “Rian doing an indie movie within a franchise”, and »

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Director Rian Johnson Explains How He’s Put Aside Nostalgia To Make His Film

17 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The final day of this year’s Star Wars Celebration closed out on Sunday afternoon in London with the much-anticipated Future Filmmakers panel, centered on the future of the “Star Wars” franchise as guided by Lucasfilm leaders Kathleen Kennedy and Kiri Hart.

The forward-focused panel promised to deliver all kinds of goods about the franchise’s still-untitled “Episode VIII” and their Han Solo standalone film, featuring appearances from “Episode VIII” director Rian Johnson and Han Solo helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

In introducing Johnson to the crowd, Kennedy told the Celebration stage audience that when it came time to pick a director for “Episode VIII,” the “Looper” and “Brick” filmmaker was “way at the top of the list right away.”

And the Lucasfilm president certainly doesn’t seem disappointed with what Johnson brought to the table, »

Precious Cargo review: “A brave but uneventful romp…”

8 July 2016 1:10 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Precious Cargo review: Zack Morris and John McClane together at last in this direct-to-dvd film that has snuck into cinemas. Precious Cargo review

Bruce Willis! How do you feel about that name? It’s one that has changed its meaning and sound throughout the years. From sitcom star to unexpected action hero, to taking on challenging prestige roles in the late 90s, Willis hasn’t exactly become stale. Recently however he has given his name to small budget action films, showed up, read his lines, and seen them go straight to DVD or streaming. This isn’t surprising however as the movie star as we know it is pretty much dead. Willis still impresses when he gets into original and challenging material such as Moonrise Kingdom, or Looper, but why not earn a buck on the side?

Precious Cargo isn’t exactly the dream outing anybody was waiting for. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, »

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

'Star Wars Episode VIII': Director Rian Johnson Commemorates "Home Stretch" With Set Photo

8 June 2016 6:46 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens set the world on fire when it hit theaters last December. Over its first weekend, the film secured its place in the box office record books with the most successful domestic opening of any film ever. Its success also carried on in the overseas market, and by the end of its run (which, interestingly enough, only officially finished a couple days ago), it broke $2 billion worldwide, coming in at number three worldwide, behind only James Cameron's Titanic and Avatar.

What's more, the film managed to please a great majority of hardcore Star Wars fans out there, many of whom lost faith in the series during the theatrical run of the prequel trilogy back in the 2000s. Director J.J. Abrams managed to accomplish the impossible, and brought back the spirit of the series that many feared would never get back to its former glory (and yes, »

Bruce Willis: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

Most Bruce Willis movies right now seem to head to DVD almost immediately. We've gone through them, in search of a gem...

It’s not exactly clear when Bruce Willis went from being a big star whose name filled seats and sold tickets to being a guy whose name you see on the cover of so many direct-to-dvd and VOD outings (albeit ones that sometimes get a week or two in a cinema, in essence to promote the VOD release), but I’d like to go out on a limb here and say that Kevin Smith’s mouth might be to blame.

During one of his filmed Q&A sessions that ended up winging its way to eager fanboys and girls like myself on DVD back in the late oughts, Smith talked at length about what it was like to work on the much-anticipated fourth instalment of the Die Hard franchise, »

‘Marauders’ Trailer: Bruce Willis Is at the Center of a Bank Robbery Conspiracy

In recent years, Bruce Willis has been sleepwalking his way through a lot of action thrillers. That’s truly a shame since we know he’s still capable of doing great work in movies like Looper and Moonrise Kingdom. Sadly, a new bank heist movie called Marauders doesn’t appear to be one of his better choices, even […]
