The Founder – Review

19 January 2017 10:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a most unusual entry in a genre that’s now becoming a cinema staple: the origin story. Now that term may be most associated with comic books, and many of the superhero blockbusters are just that, the story of how he, she, or they came to get their powers, whip up a costume, and so on (the recent Doctor Strange is an excellent example). Ah, but this is a true tale, almost an autobiography. There have been many “bio-origins”, from Young Mr. Lincoln to Southside With You (hmm.. both about future presidents). Yes, there’s the individual’s journey, but this flick is also about a product. The Social Network concerned Mark Zuckerberg and the creation of that website, and Steve Jobs was as much about the man as it was about the personal computer. This new movie focuses on Ray Kroc and chronicles the evolution of the fast food restaurant industry, »

From Sony to Snapchat: When Old Hollywood Meets New Media

18 January 2017 10:02 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What ex-Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton’s transition to Snapchat could mean for movies and new media.

Snap Inc., the technology and social media company whose products include Snapchat and Spectacles, is welcoming a Hollywood executive into its ranks. Last week, Michael Lynton announced that he would be stepping down from his position as CEO of Sony Entertainment, the film, television and music conglomerate, for a new post as board chairman for Snap Inc. Lynton is the last of the old Sony guard to depart since the infamous Sony hack which produced an email leak scandal that led to the ousting of former studio chief Amy Pascal. (Pascal is now a producer on Spider-Man: Homecoming and Barbie.)

Rumors abound regarding what will happen next at Sony Pictures, whose string of major flops including Passengers and Ghostbusters led to the studio’s 5th-place finish in 2016 studio market share, just a notch above Paramount Pictures. Lynton »

Avengers: Infinity War - This Latest Report May Upset Doctor Strange Fans

15 January 2017 2:17 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Given the expansive list of characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s undoubtedly a huge nightmare for the producers to align all the schedules for their A-list cast for their standalone pictures. We can only imagine how much more difficult it is for a film like Avengers: Infinity War, which will, as far as we know, bring together pretty much every superhero under the sun introduced in this world thus far. This includes the more recent addition to this world, Doctor Strange, who was portrayed by British thespian Benedict Cumberbatch in the recent standalone film of the same name. While Cumberbatch is set to appear in multiple films in the future, including in Infinity War, it sounds as though his appearance may not be as extensive as one would think.

According to a recent report from Page Six, Cumberbatch’s body double, Aaron Lazar is in Georgia right now, »

Trent Reznor Reveals Why the Internet Causes Young Musicians to Create ‘Shit’

15 January 2017 1:57 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When he isn’t composing music for filmmakers like David Fincher (“The Social Network”), Peter Berg (“Patriots Day”) or Ken Burns (“The Vietnam War”), Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor does what a lot of artists do: rage against opinionated internet users. In a new interview with Yahoo! Music, Reznor does just that — especially since he thinks it results in “made to please, vegan restaurant patron-type shit.”

“What has crept in is that everyone’s a commentator now,” Reznor laments. “The internet is giving voice to everybody thinking that someone gives a shit what they have to say and they have the right. I think, in general, that has created a toxic environment for artists and led to some very safe music. Artists are trying to make music to please the tastemakers that tell the sheep what to like. »

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are the Oscar winning duo who are perhaps best known for their work for David Fincher, scoring “The Social Network,” “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” and “Gone Girl.” But their latest effort sees them teaming with director Peter Berg for “Patriots Day,” and the Mark Wahlberg starring film centering on the tragic terrorist bombing at the 2013 Boston Marathon offered a unique challenge to the musicians.

12 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are collaborating on what could end up being their most ambitious film score yet: Ken Burns’ 10-part documentary “The Vietnam War,” which follows the duo’s recent work on the climate-change doc “Before the Flood” and Peter Berg’s based-on-fact thriller “Patriots Day.” The New York Times first reported the news.

“A lot of it was about tension and fear,” Reznor tells the Nyt of the war. Ross adds to that description: “Mortars, helicopters, people talking — we would process those sounds and use them as rhythmic starting points.” Burns has previously made long-form documentaries about baseball, the Civil War and World War II, among other distinctly American subjects.

Stephen Colbert Finds out That Andrew Garfield is a Gentle Lover

12 January 2017 5:50 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

It’s pretty hard to find an actor that’s as high profile as Andrew Garfield right now.   That’s exactly why he was Stephen Colbert’s most recent guest on The Late Show.  The once shy seeming guy who played Eduardo Saverin in The Social Network where he co-starred with Jesse Eisenberg has officially evolved into an A-List actor and potential Oscar Winner.  At first Garfield took on the role of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spiderman and it appeared he might be headed down blockbuster alley. However 2016 has been the year of amazing roles for the young British actor.  First

‘La La Land’ Dominates Golden Globes With Record-Breaking Sweep

8 January 2017 8:37 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For an Oscar race that has felt sewn up for a certain musical for quite some time this season, the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards was ready and willing to provide a big rubber stamp.

Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land” walked away with seven awards Sunday night, but the 31-year-old director’s love letter to Los Angeles was the talk of the show even before emcee Jimmy Fallon launched into his opening monologue. With a musical number featuring a playlist of tunes from the film’s soundtrack, the show’s producers wrangled stars like Ryan Reynolds and Justin Timberlake to participate, as well as the cast of “Stranger Things,” among others.

Gee, you think members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. liked this movie? Indeed, they handed it a record-breaking number of trophies that bested previous record holders “Midnight Express” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” And frankly, »

Golden Globes 2017: Movie and TV Predictions in All 25 Categories (Photos)

Best Motion Picture – Drama Nominees: “Hacksaw Ridge” “Hell or High Water” “Lion” “Manchester by the Sea” “Moonlight” While HFPA members were reportedly fond of “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Lion,” this one looks to be a contest between two critical favorites, Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester by the Sea” and Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight.” When there’s a film in the running that is a clear favorite of critics’ groups – “Boyhood” and “The Social Network” being two recent examples – Globes voters tend to follow suit. For that reason, I’ll go against most prognosticators and say the HFPA will pick the terrific indie film »

Coming Distractions: The latest Cars 3 teaser plays like an actual car commercial

6 January 2017 9:35 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Okay, so you weren’t such a huge fan of Cars or Cars 2. Well, how do you feel about actual cars? That seems to be the central thesis of the newest teaser for Cars 3. Seeing as how this franchise one of the rare misfires for Pixar, it’s maybe not a terrible bit of marketing slight of hand. It seems to be sort of a continuation of the strategy they employed in the gritty initial teaser, which seemed to be selling to the prospect of mutilation and death and featured the tagline: “From This Moment, Everything Will Change.”

To be precise, not everything will change. Owen Wilson is still onboard as the (possibly doomed) anthropomorphic stock car Lightning McQueen. But as you’ll see here, there are some new featured characters, including Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez, voiced by Armie Hammer (The Social Network) and Cristela Alonzo (Cristela »

Spiritual Journey: Interview with Andrew Garfield as he talks Silence, Spider-Man and more

Spiritual Journey: Interview with Andrew Garfield as he talks Silence, Spider-Man and moreSpiritual Journey: Interview with Andrew Garfield as he talks Silence, Spider-Man and moreBob Strauss - Cineplex Magazine1/4/2017 10:01:00 Am

Bringing Shusaku Endo’s historical novel Silence to the big screen has long been a passion project for Martin Scorsese, and it’s easy to see why. Endo’s fictionalized but fundamentally fact-based tale of two 17th-century Portuguese Jesuits sent to Japan to investigate their mentor, only to discover horrific repression of the island nation’s Christian minority, bears a strong thematic relationship to the director’s more overtly religious movies, The Last Temptation of Christ and Kundun. Plus, the story is so infused with violence, torments of the soul and flesh, and Catholic angst that Silence should fit comfortably on the shelf next to such Scorsese urban classics as Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and The Departed. »

Steven Soderbergh Lists Everything He Watched And Read In 2016

4 January 2017 6:41 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You’ve already waded through our year end coverage, and pored over your friends’ and family’s various lists on Goodreads and Letterboxd to see what they consumed across 2016, so what’s left? Well, Steven Soderbergh is taking his turn with his annual list of everything he watched and read during the past year, posted on his site Extension 765. And as per usual, it’s fascinating.

It seems that 2016 saw Soderbergh having a mini-David Fincher film festival, watching “The Social Network,” “Panic Room,” “The Game,” “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” “Fight Club,” and “Se7en,” but most excitingly, he’s also seen episodes of the director’s upcoming Netflix series “Mindhunter.” It really pays to be pals with Fincher.
