Danny Boyle dishes directing 'Steve Jobs' and Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet [Exclusive Video]

25 November 2015 10:50 AM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"The speed of thought of this man and the people around him was extraordinary," proclaims "Steve Jobs" director Danny Boyle about his eponymous biopic of the Apple co-founder. "It was partly their brilliance but also his drive, pushing the future and trying to get at the future. He was not a perfect guy by any means, so it's a complex portrait as well." During our recent interview (watch below) he elaborates on his experience making the movie: "It's like a ride that you get on, and you emerge at the end of it to feel like you've been in the presence of a planet. The gravitational pull and these other characters are trapped almost in a way rotating around him." -Break- Related: Watch dozens of interviews with top awards contenders The film, written by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin ("The Social Network"), has three acts set behind the scenes at key Apple product launches. »

Golden Globes: Voting Track Record Busts Some Old Myths

25 November 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The most fervent of the detractors of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. prefer to obsess over the group’s Golden Globes balloting lapses, while obstinately overlooking the org’s real awards voting history.

For every Pia Zadora, there are dozens of Globes winners that consistently demonstrate a seriousness of purpose that regularly matches or surpasses the Academy’s Oscar champions.

The HFPA’s track record of rewarding edgier, more demanding achievements in the dramatic film category is ironically the benefit of the group’s recognition of comedies and musicals.

Cynics will say having both film drama and comedy/musical Golden Globes categories means more stars on the HFPA’s red carpet and awards TV broadcast and more tables sold to the producers. Those are certainly byproducts, but the more significant impact of the acknowledgement of lighter efforts is the ability to double-down on rewarding the more demanding serious fare.

Brett Ratner developing Tetris movie in the vein of The Social Network

24 November 2015 8:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Classic video game Tetris will be heading to silver screen in two separate movies, with the announcement that Brett Ratner (X-Men: The Last Stand) is working on a biopic of the game’s creation.

The Tracking Board are reporting that the untitled movie will focus on Alexey Pajitnov, the Russian creator of Tetris, who developed the game alongside Dmitry Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov for a Soviet-funded company. Because of his Soviet connections, Pajitnov didn’t recieve royalities on the game until 1996, despite it being sold with every Game Boy.

Ratner will possibly direct the movie and will produce it with partner Jeremy Packner with their RatPac company. Their previous titles include Horrible Bosses 2, The Arrested Development Movie and The Revenant. The movie is being described in the same vein as The Social Network, which told the story of Mark Zuckerberg’s creation of Facebook.

Brett Ratner Plans "Tetris" Creation Film

18 November 2015 12:23 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

RatPac Entertainment is developing a film about Alexey Pajitnov, the Russian video game designer who created the famous building block puzzle game "Tetris" says The Tracking Board.

Said to be akin to "The Social Network" in tone, the story follows Pajitnov and the inception of the game which was first developed with Dmitry Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov in the Ussr back in 1984. At the time they were working for a Soviet-funded R&D center in Moscow.

The game was quickly exchanged between computer programmers, spread throughout the region, and blew up into a worldwide phenomenon. Pajitnov didn't get any money for his creation of Tetris until 1996, and there were massive battles both legal and even diplomatic over the rights to the game. Brett Ratner and James Packer will produce. »

Brett Ratner Attached To The Social Network-Esque Tetris Origins Movie

18 November 2015 6:46 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Alexey Pajitnov, the Russian video game designer and computer engineer that birthed Tetris, will be the center of a new origins movie depicting the creation of the seminal video game. According to The Tracking Board, Rush Hour director Brett Ratner and James Packer are developing the picture through their  Ratpac Entertainment banner.

Similarly to the Monopoly-themed film brewing in development over at Big Beach, Ratner and Packer are gunning to shed light on the intriguing story behind Tetris‘ early foray on the market. Built within a Soviet-funded company in the Ussr during the late 80s, Pajitnov sought the help of fellow designers Dmitry Pavlovsky and Vadim Gerasimov, who together transformed the plotless puzzle game into a bona fide juggernaut, with various sequels iterating on the core formula of managing and arranging a perpetual stream of falling blocks.

But with great success, comes a great legal battle over the game’s rights – and sure enough, »

A film based on the origins of Tetris planned

17 November 2015 11:09 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A film based on the origins of the famous Gameboy game Tetris is being planned with Rush Hour director Brett Ratner producing. The movie will essentially be a biopic of Alexey Pajitnov, who designed the created the game whilst working in a Russian research and development centre. The game caused controversy after the rights to it became the crux of multiple complicated legal battles that spanned across the globe.

Eventually Nintendo bagged the rights and from 1991, packaged the game with every Gameboy, creating a global phenomenon. Pajitnov reportedly didn’t receive any money for the game until 1996, the same year where he was voted the fourth most influential computer game developer of all time.

The Tracking Board report the news of the movie plans, revealing that the film will have a very similar feel to The Social Network, which, of course, was a huge success a few years ago for »

Steve Jobs review – gets to the core of Apple's co-founder

12 November 2015 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With a commanding performance from Michael Fassbender and Aaron Sorkin’s scorching script, Danny Boyle delivers an exhilarating portrait of the visionary tech mastermind

For The Social Network, the movie about Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, screenwriter Aaron Sorkin created a fast-talking, arrogant, emotionally illiterate genius-innovator obsessed with boardroom betrayal. For Steve Jobs, on the other hand, he’s created a fast-talking, arrogant, emotionally illiterate genius-innovator obsessed with boardroom betrayal. The tropes are familiar, but this is still another very exhilarating and exasperating two-hour guitar solo of a movie from Sorkin, an alpha male display of cerebral confrontation and conceit featuring a male diva to whom respect must be paid and with whom arguments are humiliatingly lost. Sorkin’s writing is a bipolar rush. For each of his films there must surely be another, unreleased one with all the same characters, who stay in bed all day and stare at the wall. »

Steve Jobs review: “A riveting, almost inspiring watch”

12 November 2015 12:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Steve Jobs review: Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin take a bite out of Apple with this superb biographical drama. Steve Jobs review

Steve Jobs is the second high-profile biopic of the computer pioneer brought to the silver screen in as many years. While the Ashton Kutcher version boasted an impressive cast that included Matthew Modine and future Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons, it didn’t warm with the critics, and Kutcher even got himself a Razzie nomination for his role as the title character. It’s wasn’t very good; so why make another?

Michael Fassbender assumes the role in this very different movie, directed by British helmer Danny Boyle (Trainspotting), and written by the legendary Aaron Sorkin, who scripted The West Wing and the more recent The Newsroom, as well as the similarly themed tech-story-biopic, The Social Network. Rather than opting to do a straight biography from Walter Isaacson, the source »

First Look At Rooney Mara In Benedict Andrews’ New Drama Una

6 November 2015 2:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Eager to keep the critical momentum from Carol trucking along – for which she won the coveted actress award at the Cannes Film Festival in May – Rooney Mara’s next picture is for Benedict Andrews’ “intense, unflinching” love drama, Una. Previously titled Blackbird up until a recent switcheroo, the film marks the directorial debut for Andrews, who has carved out a career working on stage drama up until this point.

In the film, Mara – known for eye-catching turns in David Fincher’s The Social Network and English-language Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – stars opposite Ben Mendelsohn as a young, wide-eyed woman. Attracting the attention of Mendelsohn’s Ray, Mara’s humble protagonist shows up into his life unannounced, digging up past memories that he believed to have been long buried in the sand. What follows is a passionate, yet illicit affair, one which leaves Ray in jail and Mara’s Una on the search for answers. »

25 great movie performances by actors in multiple roles

5 November 2015 1:41 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




From Thomas F Wilson in Back To The Future to Nicolas Cage and John Travolta in Face/Off - when actors play multiple roles...

The dramatic use of actors playing multiple characters is a bold and rather theatrical device that has its ups and downs. It goes at least as far back as Captain Hook being played by the same actor who plays the Darling children's father in stage productions of Peter Pan, a technique largely adopted in film adaptations of the story, too (hello to Jason Isaacs).

It's used a lot in cinema too. Done well, it's impressive, but when it's bad, it's Jack & Jill. Whether used in comedy or drama or outright horror, there are countless examples of actors delivering terrific performances in more than one role at once, and that's before we even get past Cloud Atlas. Still, we've had a go at totting up 25 of the best. »

4 November 2015 9:33 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When casting the net in search of inspiration for a challenging, multi-faceted role, actors often cite a variety of sources as inspiration – be it past interpretations of a character or a particular performance. For Jesse Eisenberg, he’s on the verge of taking on a crucial role in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and from the trailers released thus far and the unofficial plot synopsis that debuted yesterday, we know that he’ll be stirring the tension between the Last Son of Krypton and the Caped Crusader.

But how did Eisenberg prepare for the role? Well, according to the man himself, The Social Network star channeled his own personality for the part, as he moulded his own individual interpretation of the famed supervillain.
