Chloe Moretz Joins Neighbors 2

23 July 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are getting a new neighbor. Chloe Moretz, the teen actress who recently toplined Ya tearjerker If I Stay and broke out back in 2010 with Kick-Ass, has joined the talented trio in Neighbors 2. Nicholas Stoller is back in the director’s chair for the follow-up to last year’s summer smash hit, working from a script by Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien.

The first film centered on a young married couple (Rogen and Byrne) who moved into a seemingly pleasant neighborhood with their newborn daughter only to come up against the college fraternity next door, headed by charismatic but cold-hearted Teddy (Efron).

More News From The Web

Plot details for the sequel are being kept under wraps, but Moretz makes sense for the role of a sorority sister, perhaps a similar head honcho to Efron’s Teddy, who butts heads with the central couple. »

‘Funny Boys’ Film Adaptation Gains Momentum With ‘Movie 43’ Writer

26 June 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Greg Pritikin is adapting Warren Adler’s novel “Funny Boys,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The project, produced by Julian McMahon and Charlie Loventhal, is gaining momentum at Grey Eagle Films. Set in the 1930s in Brownsville, Brooklyn and the Catskills, the story centers on a young comic who wants to follow in the footsteps of the great comedians of the era.

Pritikin’s credits include the TV series “Easy to Assemble” and “Movie 43.”

Adler’s “The War of the Roses: The Children,” a sequel to the 1989 film, is being co-produced by Grey Eagle’s Jonathan Robert Adler and David Permut of Permut Presentations.

Other Grey Eagle projects include “Target Churchill,” co-developed with Solution Entertainment Group; “Mourning Glory,” to be adapted by Karen Leigh Hopkins; and TV series “Capital Crimes,” based on Adler’s “Fiona FitzGerald” mystery series, co-developed by Sennet Entertainment with Eric Overmyer as showrunner.

Elizabeth Banks Looking to Direct Ya Adaptation 'Red Queen'

12 June 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As much as I want to support Elizabeth Banks' endeavors jumping behind the camera, between her non-distinctive touch to Pitch Perfect 2 to her equally unremarkable short in Movie 43, I can't quite say I'm a fan of what she's brought to the table thus far. But I like to think of myself as a pretty open-minded guy, and maybe she can turn my opinion with what looks to be her sophomore feature, an adaptation of Victoria Aveyard's Ya novel "Red Queen". Banks currently is in negotiations to helm the project for Universal, called a mix between "Game of Thrones," X-Men, Cinderella and her own Hunger Games. This would be a much bigger production than the $29 million budgeted one she spearheaded before, but based on her sequel's impressive box office numbers (they've already greenlit Pitch Perfect 3 as well), she's likely got enough clout to get herself in the door. »

Elizabeth Banks on Becoming a Director, Mentoring Young Women

5 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s no news to Elizabeth Banks that her “Pitch Perfect 2″ isn’t something that happens everyday.

“We did something really rare,” she says of the movie, on which she made her directorial feature debut. “We made a movie that was directed by a woman, written by a woman, produced by a woman and stars a poster full of women.”

The accomplishment is only one of the reasons Banks has been chosen as one of the honorees at the 12th annual Inspiration Awards, held by the Step Up organization, where she’ll be honored with a special ceremony on Friday, along with Hudson Jeans CEO Peter Kim and one of the teenagers from the Step Up program.

Step Up aims to propel girls from under-resourced communities to finish high school, enter college and more, with such methods as after-school programs and mentorships. Banks got to meet some of the »

'Drunk Wedding' (2015) Movie Review

26 May 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Have you ever wanted to spend a tequila-fueled weekend with the worst people in the worldc Well, have I got the film for -- oh... what's thatc That sounds like a horrible way to spend your timec I am so happy to hear you say that. Then I do not have to recommend you see the found footage "comedy" that has sat on Paramount's shelf for two years, Drunk Wedding. And that's a good thing, because this is a film that should not be recommended under any circumstance whatsoever. This is a film that made me angry people now have the capabilities to make a movie whenever they want, not just because it isn't funny, but because it screams, "Qualityc You want qualityc How about I sh*t on your facec" Adam Sandler is often criticized that his films feel like he is just getting paid to go on vacation »

Watch: The Bellas Go Global With The International Trailer For 'Pitch Perfect 2'

20 April 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

To be perfectly honest, my wife and her friends should be the ones writing this article about the new international trailer for “Pitch Perfect 2." They’re the ones who care a bit more than I do about “Glee: The Movie, But With More Talented and Charming People” a.k.a. “Pitch Perfect," and they're not the only ones. The first movie was a surprise success, and sold a boatload of soundtracks. There's every indication this highly anticipated sequel should be a smash hit. The first movie had a lot of charm, mostly spearheaded by energetic and likable performances by Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson. Kendrick, Wilson, as well as the entire Barden Bellas are back for the sequel, this time directed by Elizabeth Banks, who also returns to the cast as the obnoxious presenter from the first film. “Pitch Perfect 2” represents Banks’ feature directorial debut. She previously helmed »

'Moonwalkers' (2015) Movie Review

19 March 2015 3:16 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We all know the famous conspiracy theory suggesting Stanley Kubrick helped the government fake the moon landing. For some reason, this myth lives on in the minds of some people, but no one has really capitalized in the movies with exploring this theory. Moonwalkers looks to play with that even more by saying the request never even got to Kubrick but ended up in the hands of a lousy British band manager (Rupert Grint) and a violent CIA agent (Ron Perlman). What follows hopes to be a raucous comedy but ends up being a miserable, unfunny sit you just want to end. Everything is in place for some laughs. You have the fish out of water aspect with Perlman playing Kidman, a straight laced, very violent man in among a group of hippies. You have the 1960s drug culture to exploit for jokes. You have the absurdity of these talentless »

The Divergent Series: Insurgent movie review: being human

17 March 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Sneakily undercuts tropes of the young-adult hero’s journey. But in a more adventurous movie environment, this wouldn’t feel this fresh as it does. I’m “biast” (pro): enjoyed the first film; desperate for genre films with female protagonists

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Is it convoluted, perhaps unnecessarily so, perhaps has a result of adhering too closely to the novel it’s based on? Maybe. Is the world it posits perhaps implausible? Could be. So what? The same applies to the Harry Potter movies and the Hunger Games flicks. Take away the book-adaptation issues, and the same applies to the Star Wars films. Substitute comic-book foundations, and the same applies to the Marvel movies. The essential thing about Insurgent is that it gets all the important stuff right (as do, »

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) movie review: winged infamy

24 February 2015 9:43 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s all a bit satirical. Or maybe not. Look, over there, Shakespeare in a superhero cape! I’m “biast” (pro): like the director, love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It was one thing when Birdman was the scrappy little indie that could. (Never mind that it was an indie with a budget of $22 million and an A-list cast.) Then it was just a snooty pretentious film with an arty gimmick that hardly anyone had seen. But now it has been crowned as the very best movie of 2014 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science. The people who are the most Hollywood that people can be have officially spoken. And what they have said is, “We hate superhero movies. We hate the fans who make superhero movies huge. But we love your money, so thanks for that. »

11 Actors Who Had an Oscar-Nominated Movie & a Total Bomb Come Out at the Same Time

20 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not every movie can be a winner. And not every actor can be Meryl Streep.

Even Oscar nominees make bad movies and sometimes, in an unfortunate twist of fate and bad timing, that bomb, that dud, that total and complete flop, comes out at the same time as some of the best work of their life. Here are 11 times that happened in the past 10 years:

Focus Features

1. Eddie Redmayne (2015)

Nominated Role: The Theory of Everything. Redmayne is the Best Actor favorite this year for this biopic about Stephen Hawking navigating black holes and Als.

Losing Role: Jupiter Ascending. This totally effing bonkers Wachowski sci-fi flick came out just before Oscar voting started. And once you see Redmayne as Bowie-esque space prince Balem Abrasax, it cannot be unseen.

The Weinstein Company

2. Jennifer Lawrence (2013)

Winning Role: Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence took home Best Actress for her turn as a trouble townie named Tiffany in this dark spin on a rom-com »

John Wick Directors Join Chris Pratt for Cowboy Ninja Viking

29 January 2015 4:21 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Three of last year’s biggest breakouts are set to work together on your new most anticipated movie of, well, currently forever. Cowboy Ninja Viking doesn’t have a release date yet, so I don’t know how long you’ll need to be patient, but try to contain your excitement. We already knew that rising tentpole star Chris Pratt would be front and center in the adaptation of A.J. Lieberman and Riley Rossmo’s graphic novel  if the right person or persons were at the helm, and now he’s given his approval for the men who will likely direct him: Chad Stahelski and David Leitch. That’s right, the duo who helmed John Wick, which was their feature directorial debut following decades of work as stunt men and second-unit work. According to Variety, they’re in early talks with an offer out, but it’s hard to see this not coming together as perfectly as »

Costume Designers to Fete Naomi Watts

21 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here. The Costume Design Guild has announced that they’ll be celebrating Naomi Watts with the Lacoste Spotlight Award when they announce winners for their film, TV and commercial awards on February 17th. While they bill the award as honoring an “actor whose talent and career personifies an enduring commitment to excellence, including a special awareness of the role and importance of costume design,” their choices so far (previous recipients include Anne Hathaway, Kate Beckinsale, Halle Berry and Emily Blunt) have yet to really reflect the award, no? Whither Keira, Nicole, Tilda or heck, even Colin Firth? The man can wear a sweater (among other things), you know.

Anyways, we should really focus on the positive and be thankful Watts was able to bounce back so quickly from that horrible triple-whammy of Movie 43, Adore and Diana. Let's just hope she can keep up the momentum going. And so »

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

10 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

The suave American actor looked set for big things in the '90s thanks to impressive roles in Dead Calm and Tombstone, but his time in the purple Phantom »
