'It made my children cry': when real-life figures hate their biopics

28 April 2017 1:28 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Madonna has expressed her unhappiness over unauthorised biopic Blond Ambition, but she’s not the first famous person to get annoyed

Madonna is disgruntled. Blond Ambition, the biopic of her early days, is arguably one of the most anticipated movies of recent years. Its script was so acclaimed that it topped last year’s Black List. It’s being made by Michael De Luca, who produced The Social Network. It has the potential to do the business both critically and commercially. But Madonna hates it.

Tribeca 2017 Review: The Circle, Where All Are Trapped in the Social Media Web

27 April 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

The subject of our hyper-connected, social media-based cultural landscape is a fruitful and relevant one for filmmakers, and one with great potential for mass audience interest, given how pervasive this is in our daily lives. David Fincher’s Facebook origin story The Social Network can be looked upon as the gold standard of this sort of film, its paranoid thriller elements fitting well with the real-life dystopian aspects of the corporate encroachments and privacy erosion that are seemingly inescapable hallmarks of our constant online presences.   The latest film to tackle this very large subject is The Circle, directed by James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular NowThe End of the Tour) and written by Dave Eggers, based on his 2013 novel. The protagonist is Mae Holland (Emma Watson) who, with an assist from her best friend Annie (Karen Gillian), escapes her dead-end customer service job and lands a much more lucrative position at. »

Sony Distribution Chief Rory Bruer Retires After 40 Years at Studio

27 April 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rory Bruer is retiring as head of worldwide distribution at Sony Pictures after four decades at the studio.

Sony does not plan to directly replace him. Bruer, who has deep ties with theater owners, will segue into an advisory role at the studio. Adrian Smith and Steven O’Dell will handle domestic and international distribution, respectively. They will report directly to Josh Greenstein, president of worldwide marketing and distribution.

“Though I knew in my heart that the time was right to begin to pull back, it’s hard to let go of a place that has been a part of my life for so long — so when they asked me to stay on as an advisor, I jumped at the chance,” Bruer wrote in a letter to staff. “Not everybody gets to begin this next chapter on their own terms, and I’m very grateful for the opportunity.”

David Fincher Confirmed To Reteam With Brad Pitt For ‘World War Z’ Sequel

27 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Although 2014’s “Gone Girl” turned out to be the biggest hit of David Fincher’s career to date, the acclaimed “Zodiac” and “The Social Network” director hasn’t had the best few years. He was all set to have not one but two HBO series, the semi-autobiographical ’80s music video world comedy-drama “Videosyncrazy” and UK conspiracy thriller remake “Utopia” with Rooney Mara, but the former was shut down midway through production, and the latter had the plug pulled just before filming, in both cases reportedly because of issues over budgets.

David Fincher Will Officially, Actually Direct a ‘World War Z’ Sequel as His Next Film

26 April 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Around the release of Gone Girl, I recall someone asking David Fincher why he wanted to adapt a pulpy best-seller instead of perhaps a more original project. His response was that he wanted people to actually show up to the multiplex to see his work, hinting at the rather cold initial response to his masterpiece. One has to imagine that’s a substantial reason for how he decided on his next project as he’s pushing that notion to extreme.

After various stages of attachment, Variety is reporting that The Social Network director has actually closed a deal to direct a sequel to World War Z. Although he did do a remake with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, this would mark his first direct sequel since his infamously bungled debut, Alien 3. Paramount is moving fast on the project as well, with production aiming to begin early next year, »

“Where do I begin? Words just aren’t enough with heartache like this,” Timberlake captioned a photo of him and the late director on Instagram.

“You, master of humanity. You, genius of storytelling. You, generous and warm man. You, special soul. You taught me so much about life and art and about standing up for what you believe. You made me better at my craft,” he continued. “And, the time I spent with you away from a camera and a stage made a better human out of me. You are truly irreplaceable. »

Why Jonathan Demme Was One of the Greatest Concert Movie Directors Ever

26 April 2017 10:44 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jonathan Demme's death at the age of 73 prompted an outpouring of online memorials from film lovers who remembered the Oscar-winning director for his varied career: everything from the chilling, intelligent thriller The Silence of the Lambs to the brittle 2008 indie drama Rachel Getting Married. But for music fans, those highlights don't even scratch the surface of what cemented his legacy.

It's not hyperbole to say that Demme was arguably the greatest concert filmmaker ever – look at the number of them that he made, the range of artists he chronicled »

The Social Network Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment

26 April 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When you look back on the movie The Social Network it’s hard to think that Mark Zuckerberg was much like the character that Jesse Eisenberg played.  There was an arrogance as well as elitist tone he used throughout the movie.  Don’t get me wrong, it made for an excellent piece of cinema and to this day remains one of my favorite “biopic” type films.  It’s just that seeing Zuckerberg now and the way he runs his company it’s hard for me to believe he was that much of a vindictive type of guy back then. Plus the entire movie is

The sub-genre that it the techno-horror is much maligned in the horror community, whilst many have tried to cash in on the latest internet craze (or scare), by the time the films hit cinemas or DVD said fad is usually over and all you’re left with is an incredibly dated sub-par horror tale. »

Armie Hammer’s Downfall is the Name Armie Hammer Itself

23 April 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’m pretty sure that after Armie Hammer’s portrayal of the Winklevoss twins in The Social Network, people assumed he was going to be a star.  I certainly did.  And I think that even Hollywood wanted it to happen.    The guy’s just too charming and handsome looking a guy not to make it right?  All he needed was a little acting ability and we should have easily had ourselves another leading man.  But that’s not the way things have turned out for Armie Hammer.   His role in The Lone Ranger was his chance and I’m not saying it’s his fault, but

Hammer’s Time: Can Armie Hammer Finally Turn a Corner with ‘Free Fire’?

23 April 2017 7:51 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

How do you make a charming movie star out of a Winklevoss?

Midway through Ben Wheatley’s new one-long-gunfight movie Free Fire, Armie Hammer’s character picks up a machine gun. This escalation will perhaps elicit an exhale and a “finally” from the audience. Hammer plays a deal broker called Ord in a gun-buy gone south, and to this point every shooter in the ensemble cast has ironically been limited to revolvers. But Hammer’s increased firepower at this moment is as fitting as his tailored wool blazer. In a movie where each crook is initially unleashed with quick and clever characterization, Hammer’s shtick — the fashion-conscious criminal liaison surrounded by goons — has legs and teeth. He’s firing on more cylinders than anyone in this action-comedy, which stars dramatic heavy hitters Brie Larson and Cillian Murphy and UK genre-flick staples Michael Smiley and Noah Taylor. For as long as any of them are allowed to stay »

The top 25 films (that people have seen more than 5 times)

19 April 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 20, 2017

What tend to be the highest rated movies, where the criteria is said films have been watched at least five times?

One aside in a recent piece I penned at this site questioned whether films such as The Shawshank Redemption – for some time ranked as the best film of all time by popular vote at the IMDb – were favoured amongst those who’d seen it more than one time. I was questioning whether the films we tend to salute as the greatest – rather than our favourites – are the ones we tend to watch time and time again.

In the same article, for instance, I highlighted Schindler’s List, an excellent film, but not one I see too many people watching on six monthly rotation. That doesn’t make it a lesser film, rather, it’s the kind of movie that I’d imagine most have seen once or twice at best, »

Sony, Paramount appoint UK MDs

6 April 2017 12:51 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Departure of long-time Sony UK boss Peter Taylor prompts shake-up at studios.

The quiet retirement of long-time Sony Pictures UK MD Peter Taylor has prompted a shakeup at the top of two Hollywood studios in the UK.

Industry veteran Taylor has been replaced as MD by former Paramount Pictures UK MD Ian George.

In turn, Paramount marketing director John Fletcher has been appointed Paramount UK MD following George’s departure.

Taylor had steered Sony’s UK office for more than a decade, joining in 2006 after a two-year stint as MD of Warner Bros UK.

The studio veteran had previously worked at Columbia (and then Sony) in various roles between 1982-2004.

During his tenure as MD he oversaw huge results for the Bond franchise, including the UK’s second and third-biggest releases ever in the shape of Skyfall, which took more than £100m in 2012, and Spectre, which made £94m in 2015.

He also co-ordinated big local successes for the »
