Still Alice movie review: a true horror movie

28 April 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Julianne Moore’s terror at watching her own emotional and intellectual life slip away is palpable, and much scarier to me than any slasher movie. I’m “biast” (pro): love Julianne Moore

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

This is my own personal Worst Possible Nightmare magicked into being and splashed up on the screen in all its larger-than-life, oh-look-it’s-happening-to-a-movie-star heightened reality. Movies about insane axe murderers and methodical serial killers do not frighten me. Still Alice scares the shit out of me.

And, of course, its horror is far more likely to impact you or me than anything that runs around in a slasher movie. Except it would be much, much worse than what we see here.

Julianne Moore has early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Not really Julianne Moore the actual person, »

Tom Cruise May Sing Again in Disney's 'Bob the Musical' Comedy

24 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In a surprising turn back in 2012, superstar Tom Cruise ventured into musical territory for the 80s rock infused Broadway adaptation Rock of Ages. The actor wasn't actually all that bad, and was easily the best part of a fun but somewhat messy musical. Now it looks like he might head back to the genre as The Wrap reports Cruise is circling the title role in the gestating Bob the Musical. He's not officially attached yet, but Disney has been circling Cruise for the role since January, and it sounds like he's still interested. Of course, there's plenty of movies Cruise is linked to, but they don't all come to fruition with him involved. It certainly sounds like it would be an interesting project to see Cruise tackle as it follows a regular guy who, after a blow to the head, suddenly can hear the inner songs of everyone’s hearts. »

The Emperor’s New Clothes documentary review: working-class wonk

24 April 2015 5:51 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Russell Brand’s angry-funny rant about the current system of widescale economic injustice is concise, comprehensible, and newly infuriating. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

In the funny-angry rant that is The Emperor’s New Clothes, comedian and activist Russell Brand reminds us that “Hans Christian Andersen didn’t say what happened to the cheats” who pulled a fast one on that emperor with the nonexistent clothes they made for him. But we know what happened to the banksters who crashed the global economy in 2008: Nothing. Well, nothing bad. They’ve continued to pay themselves enormous bonuses and live like the rules don’t apply to them. Because the rules actually don’t apply to them, not like they apply to you and me.

As Brand (Despicable Me 2, Rock of Ages) says as his entertaining tirade opens, »

Disney Eying Tom Cruise for Comedy 'Bob the Musical'

23 April 2015 2:13 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tom Cruise isn't the first guy you might think of to star in a movie called Bob the Musical, first because his name isn't Bob, and second because the movie is billed as a high-concept comedy and Cruise is better-known as an action guy, but according to The Wrap Disney has its hopes firmly set on the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation star to lead the project. Cruise isn't officially attached to the project yet, but I count myself a Cruise fan and I have to say I am excited about the prospect of him playing the lead in a comedy again, especially one with an interesting premise. According to the report Disney hopes to reel in Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) to direct a script from Allan Loeb (Rock of Ages). The story is this: a regular guy can suddenly hear the inner songs of everyone's heart after suffering a blow to the head, »

Relativity, Condé Nast Entertainment Partner on Met Costume Institute Gala Documentary (Exclusive)

16 April 2015 9:44 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity Studios is partnering with Condé Nast Entertainment and Vogue to produce and distribute a documentary about the making of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s spring 2015 Costume Institute exhibition and gala.

The companies have tapped Andrew Rossi, the filmmaker behind “Page One: Inside the New York Times” and “Ivory Tower,” to direct the look at how the annual showcase of haute couture is created.

It’s the latest example of a news company teaming up with a movie studio on a joint venture. In recent months, the likes of Newsweek, “60 Minutes” and BuzzFeed have all collaborated with studios or production companies on projects that mine their areas of coverage for bigscreen entertainments.

In this case there’s some natural overlap. The gala tends to bring out a crowd of A-list Hollywood players, eager to show off their high fashion bona fides on the red carpet.

Cruise Performs Laugh-Out-Loud Stunts in MI5 Trailer (with Bonus Teaser)

24 March 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' star Tom Cruise as Ethan Hunt 'Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation' trailer: Movie stunt combo "Desperate times. Desperate measures," says Tom Cruise aka Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation trailer aka the Mission: Impossible 5 and/or MI5 trailer. Whatever you call it, that particular line could be read in a number of ways: Tom Cruise's superstardom is in the doldrums – at least that's what we hear from those who see reality only through U.S.-focused lenses – and he needs all the box-office help he can get. Hence, MI5. Hollywood is in dire need of a mammoth domestic blockbuster following a year of mediocre-performing tentpoles at the U.S. box office. Hence, MI5. The world's socioeconomic fabric is about to unravel. Hence, MI5 – so humankind can go with a bang. Not only with a bang, but with mirth as well. »

Jamie Dornan threw up while auditioning for Rock of Ages movie

18 February 2015 1:19 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jamie Dornan has revealed that he vomited during an audition for 2012's Rock of Ages movie.

The actor told Variety that he was in "the worst situation ever" after he decided to take a shot of whiskey to relax his vocal cords for the audition.

Dornan said: "I had to sing 'Waiting for a Girl Like You'. It's nearly impossible to sing, and I've got quite a deep voice when I sing. My audition was at 10 in the morning on the Warner Bros lot.

"I convinced myself it would be a good idea to have a bit of whiskey to relax my vocal cords and maybe as a bit of a confidence booster. Suddenly, I took a swig of Jameson and I instantly f**king puked."

He continued: "So I'm standing with all these executives driving around in golf carts, as I'm vomiting on the lot. It was a bad look. »

Peter Dinklage’s Leprechaun Comedy O’Lucky Day Snags Director Adam Shankman

16 February 2015 1:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After years of solid work as a background player, Peter Dinklage finally broke into the mainstream with his terrific performance as conniving, charismatic Tyrion Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones, and as the fifth season of that series approaches, it appears that Hollywood is finally seeing the actor as leading man material.

Paramount Pictures has recruited prolific helmer Adam Shankman to direct Dinklage in O’Lucky Day, an R-rated comedy in the vein of Bad Santa about a con man who poses as a real, live leprechaun. The project, which has been in the works for sometime, is described as being “deep in R-rated territory but wrapped around an emotional heart.”

Andrew Dodge (Bad Words) penned the script, which is undergoing rewrites by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (Friday the 13th).

O’Lucky Day certainly sounds like it could yield a fair share of laughs, though Shankman’s involvement isn’t exactly thrilling news. »

Rock of Ages director in talks to helm Peter Dinklage's Leprechaun comedy

13 February 2015 1:25 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Deadline is reporting Adam Shankman (Rock Of Ages, Hairspray) is in talks to direct O'Lucky Day, a comedy about "a con man who may or may not be a real Leprechaun, but who certainly passes himself off as one" starring star Peter Dinklage. The tone of the film has been described as similar to Bad Santa, so hopefully that means the film will be getting an R-rating. We first learned about the movie back in October of 2013 when Dinklage joined the project, and the »

Adam Shankman Set to Direct Peter Dinklage's Leprechaun Comedy

12 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in the fall of 2013, we learned that "Game of Thrones" star Peter Dinklage was going to star in an R-rated comedy where he played a man who tells people that he's a leprechaun. Now Deadline has word that the film is called O'Lucky Day, and Hairspray and Rock of Ages director Adam Shankman is in talks to get behind the camera. Some more details on the story have also surfaced as it's described as following a con man who may or may not be a real leprechaun, but at the very least, convinces people that he is one. However, with Shankman on board as director, I'm not entirely sure this will be R-rated comedy anymore. The original script came from Andrew Dodge, who wrote Bad Words for Jason Bateman's directorial debut, but it's been rewritten by Damian Shannon & Mark Swift (Freddy vs. Jason). That means there's still a »

Vertical Entertainment has announced the acquisition of the North American rights to "Eden," a thriller directed by Shyam Madiraju.

The collaboration on our first film 'Anna' was a great experience." The film stars Ethan Peck (grandson of Hollywood legend Gregory Peck), Jessica Lowndes ("90210"), Diego Boneta ("Rock of Ages"), James Remar, Sung Kang, and Nate Parker ("Beyond The Lights").

Julianne Hough and Vanessa Hudgens joins Fox’s live Grease musical

18 January 2015 5:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fox has announced the first casting for its upcoming Grease live musical, with Julianna Hough (Rock of Ages) set to portray Sandy Olsson and Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical) securing the role of Rizzo.

“Grease is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy,” states Hough (via EW). “My siblings and I watched it and played it out over and over when we were kids. This is my dream role and performing it live on television will be one of the most thrilling opportunities I’ve had in my career so far.”

“Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge,” adds Hudgens. “She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. »

Fox Plans "Grease" Musical, NBC On "Pan" Flop

17 January 2015 12:40 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

NBC had huge success with "The Sound of Music Live" two years ago, pulling 18.5 million viewers for the one-off event. Yet while many know "The Sound of Music" off by heart, inexplicably the network chose the far less popular or even known stage musical version of "Peter Pan" for a follow-up.

Understandably, the ratings fell with just 9.1 million viewers tuning in for that broadcast. At the TCA Winter Tour presentation this week, NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt put the blame for the failure on the lack of star power and the lack of awareness of "Peter Pan" as a stage musical. They also suggested either "The Wiz" or "The Music Man" for their next attempt.

If there's one musical movie as ubiquitous and well-known as "The Sound of Music" though, it's "Grease" and Fox announced plans today for a live television production of "Grease: The Musical". The broadcast plans to »

Julianne Hough will fill the Olivia Newton-John role of Sandy in what executive producer Marc Platt called "a shared entertainment event suited for today's audience," while Vanessa Hudgens will don the character Rizzo's Pink Ladies jacket, Entertainment Weekly reports. »

The three-hour live musical staging, which was originally announced to bow this year, instead will be broadcast Sunday, Jan. 31, 2016, starting at 7/6c.

Hough’s acting credits include 2011’s Footloose remake and the Broadway-to-screen adaptation Rock of Ages, »
