7 things I learned from the Wired oral history of Industrial Light & Magic

19 May 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Industrial Light & Magic, the San Francisco-based visual effects house that has changed the course of cinema history countless times over the years, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. Wired Magazine has rounded up a who's who to discuss its impact and how the advances made there — first in a sweaty Van Nuys warehouse, and now in a swank Presidio complex — have morphed the film industry into what it is today. It's well worth your time. If, however, you're the "tl;dr" type, I couldn't help but jot down a few takeaways as I read. Here are seven. But seriously, take some time to read through it if you can. It's a tight but detailed look back, full of the kind of stories — from "Star Wars" to "Transformers" — that make "movie magic" a thing. George Lucas wants Marvel to make another "Howard the Duck" movie I've actually always loved Willard Huyck »

Cannes: U.S., China Drives Cannes Biz

18 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Five years ago, the business at Cannes was powered by movies selling out worldwide, and U.S. distribution sales were something of a sideshow.

Now it’s the U.S. and China driving the business forward, with 2015 Cannes fueled by U.S. and China, both galvanized by new players. Europe remains depressed by eroding ancillary markets.

Trouble is, while the U.S. is helping to make up for the weakness in the market, its growth doesn’t cover all of Europe’s slack, said Lotus Entertainment’s Bill Johnson.

But some big late market additions, new players and one spectacular deal added brio to an far more upbeat market.

“Though there were no tentpoles, in terms of volume, this was a good hectic market, with big movies and big companies’ slates pretty well selling out,” said Ivan Boeing at Imagem.

More big projects could still come onto the market, he added.

The biggest deal in the market was the $acquisition of world rights for a reported $20 million to Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals” by Focus from CAA/FilmNation. Drama is a relationship mystery thriller with Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams. »

What films should be expanded into shared universes?

14 May 2015 11:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Shared universes are big business right now, and here are seven franchises that could, and should be expanded...

It's likely that by the time you finish reading this sentence a new cinematic universe will have been born. In fact, it may be one of the cinematic universes I propose later in this article. If that's the case, I apologise for my obsolescence. Furthermore, if you're reading this in the future and any of my proposed cinematic universes have come to pass and turned out awful, I also apologise.

Just know that I'm sorry, and I've a feeling that many of us are going to be sorry and that the film industry could be in a sorry and confusing mess in five years time thanks to 'Cinematic Universe Fever' (a real affliction, and currently a very common complaint on the casebooks of doctors and private physicians in Hollywood). Right now, really »

The Ten Best Action Movies of the New Millennium

12 May 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Who doesn’t love a good action movie? They’re among the most fun that Hollywood has to offer, particularly when they’re of a high quality. Later on this week, a reportedly amazing new one in Mad Max: Fury Road is hitting theaters, so to prep us all for that experience (I see it later on today, so yay for that), I wanted to do a countdown of the recent best that the genre has to offer. Essentially, every action flick since 2000 was eligible, and I whittled that down to a top ten list. It’s hardly the definitely “new millennium action movie” list, but I think it’s a pretty solid one, to say the least. You’ll be able to see the list below, which could very well be amended once Mad Max: Fury Road comes to town… Here now are my picks for the ten best »

Star Wars: Episode VIII to shoot in the UK at Pinewood Studios

4 May 2015 1:45 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This won’t come as much of a surprise, but it has been announced that 2017’s Star Wars: Episode VIII is set to shoot at Pinewood Studios in the UK, and will presumably go into production once Gareth Edwards finishes up with the first standalone spin-off movie, Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One.

The announcement was made by UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, who said: “This investment by Lucasfilm is a huge vote of confidence in all elements of movie-making in Britain – from the visual effects designers to the lighting technicians and from the carpenters to the costume designers… We are committed to backing this sector and the decision by Lucasfilm to continue to make the UK the home of Star Wars production is why we are right to believe that Britain is the best place in the world for the creative industries.”

Image Entertainment Acquires Stanley Film Fest hit Some Kind Of Hate

4 May 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Fresh out of making one hell of a splash at this week’s Stanley Film Festival, the Adam Egypt Mortimer-helmed horror flick Some Kind Of Hate, has now been acquired by Image Entertainment/Rlj, joining Joe Dante’s Burying The Ex and another film that I’m anxious to check out, Dark Was The Night. Image has done a great job picking up some interesting and entertaining genre films lately, and the fact that they jumped at the chance to pick up Some Kind Of Hate just shows that they’re committed to bringing horror fans interesting and thought-provoking films. Adding to the excitement, Mortimer is confidently becoming a jack of all trades, with previously not only directing music videos for bands like Against Me!, but producing the upcoming horror anthology Holidays, as well as putting out one of the most entertaining comics of recent time, Ballistic.

Alex Garland & Rian Johnson Talk 'Ex Machina,' Misdirecting The Audience, Shooting On A Budget And More

21 April 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For writer/director Alex Garland and his movie “Ex Machina,” things are going about as well as one could have ever hoped, particularly for someone who’s taken on such complex subject matter for his directorial debut. The sci-fi film has been very well-received by critics (read our own enthusiastic review), and though it doesn’t hit theaters nationwide until this Friday, it’s had considerable box office success in its limited release thus far. Even better? Garland’s film has also won the heart of filmmaker Rian Johnson, the man behind "Brick" and "Looper," and who will be writing and directing “Star Wars: Episode VIII.” Johnson joined Alex Garland, after a screening of “Ex Machina” at the Arclight Hollywood last Saturday, for a special Q&A. The director seemed genuinely blown away by the film, which he compared favorably to such films as “Sleuth” and Sidney Lumet’s “Deathtrap. »

Oscar Isaac Talks 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and Going After X-Men's Apocalypse (Exclusive)

19 March 2015 4:38 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

A few days ago at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas, we got to sit down with Oscar Isaac, the charismatic star of "Inside Llewyn Davis" and last year's amazing (and amazingly under-seen) "A Most Violent Year." We were there to chat about his new movie, the deeply brilliant sci-fi film "Ex Machina," wherein he plays a mad scientist and tech billionaire who recruits an underling (played by Domhnall Gleeson) to test out some cutting edge new artificial intelligence and things go awry. It's awesome and we'll be bringing you lots more from the movie (and our interview with Isaac) in the weeks ahead.

But while we were chatting, I couldn't help but bring up the fact that he will soon be seen in a little art house movie called "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," directed by some guy named J.J. Abrams. So I quizzed him »

Die Hard, Pulp Fiction: What's your favourite Bruce Willis movie?

19 March 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Many happy returns to Bruce Willis, who celebrates his 60th birthday today (March 19)!

Ever since finding fame in the '80s thanks to sitcom Moonlighting and explosive action movie Die Hard, Bruce has been a regular on our screens, appearing in films great, good, not-so-good and Cop Out.

With John McClane himself celebrating the big 6-0, Digital Spy staff reminisce about their favourite Bruce Willis movies, while you can vote for your personal favourite in the poll below...

Die Hard - Morgan Jeffery (TV Editor)

There's a million reasons to love 1988's Die Hard - the colourful supporting characters like Al (Reginald VelJohnson), Ellis (Hart Bochner) and Argyle (De'voreaux White), action cinema's greatest ever villain in Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), Michael Kamen's brilliantly '80s score...

But the big reason is Bruce. Sure, New York cop John McClane was a tough guy, but what Willis brought to the part »

Apparently J.J. Abrams Is Frontrunner To Direct Star Wars: Episode IX

18 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The final movie in the new Star Wars trilogy isn't set to hit theaters until 2019, but that hasn't stopped Latino Review from doing some digging and coming up with the name of a potential director for it. According to them, J.J. Abrams is looking likely to return to helm Star Wars Episode IX after Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick) handles the middle instalment, which is due for release in 2017. Apparently Disney/LucasFilm are very pleased with what Abrams delivered with The Force Awakens, and despite rumors of behind-the-scenes disagreements, it seems he's the man they want in charge of Episode IX. Of course, we'll have to take this as a rumor too for now, and there is a lot that can change before cameras start rolling on this project, but we'll keep you posted if we get any updates. »

J.J. Abrams rumored to direct Star Wars: Episode IX

18 March 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Old reports about the future installments in the ever-expanding Star Wars film franchise – which will soon consist of one film every year – made it seem that Star Wars: The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams would be handing over the keys to the beloved saga after only one film. Now, we’ve learned that that may not be the case.

Looper helmer Rian Johnson was once rumored to be writing and directing both Episode VIII and Episode IX, which hit theaters in 2017 and 2019, but the latest official announcement from Disney only provided confirmation that Johnson would be taking the helm of Episode VIII. Now, Latino Review is reporting that Abrams is the frontrunner to direct Episode IX, “despite his absence from the production team on the next installments, his commitment to other ongoing franchises and early rumors of disagreements between him and the Disney Team.”

Reportedly, those at Disney who »

J.J. Abrams is Rumored to Return to Direct 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

18 March 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn't slated to arrive for nine months, and we only just confirmed Looper director Rian Johnson would be at the helm of Star Wars: Episode VIII, coming in May of 2017, that's not stopping the rumors from starting on who will be at the helm of Star Wars: Episode IX. After all, Disney wants a new film from the galaxy far, far away arriving every year (like Star Wars: Rogue One in 2016) for the foreseeable future, so why wouldn't they be planning ahead? And Latino Review has the first rumor of a frontrunner director for Episode IX as The Force Awakens helmer J.J. Abrams. Again, this is just a rumor for now, and since it's so early, take it with a huge grain of salt. As of now, I'm inclined to believe that while the studio may want Abrams back for Star Wars: Episode IX, »

During Disney's annual meeting of shareholders it was revealed that the first "Star Wars" spin-off, which will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla), is officially called "Rogue One" and will star Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything).
