'The Imitation Game' Review: Almost There, But Not Quite

19 December 2014 5:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"The Imitation Game" is one of those movies that feels important and groundbreaking, yet falls apart the more you know about the events it portrays. It's a movie that's perfectly fine, yet could have been extraordinary, and that generates a level of disappointment that might mask what for many is one of the best films they've seen all year.

The film tells the story of the remarkable scientist and inventor Alan Turing, a man with great internal conflict and a vast intelligence. Along with his colleagues, Turing helped change the outcome of the Second World War, as his mathematical prowess and the construction of an early computation device could be used to crack what was thought to be unbreakable Nazi Codes.

The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch in a role sure to see many plaudits at awards time, with a very real possibility he'll be taking home the Best Actor trophy at the next Oscars. »

Footloose ‘Hobbit’ Grows; ‘Mockingjay’ Tempers ‘Fire': Intl Box Office Final

15 December 2014 4:39 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

2Nd Update, Monday 4:39 Pm Pt: Actuals are in from the international weekend with The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies climbing $4.6M above projections. The 1st frame cume is now $122.2M with 3D results accounting for 71% of the box office total. Increases in key overseas markets have been updated below. Expanded Hobbit holiday cheer will flow next weekend in North America, Italy, Spain and Korea. On the flipside, Exodus: Gods And Kings came in slightly lower in its cume, which is $18.2M versus an estimated $18.8M on Sunday. However, the biblical epic was up over projections in some Asian markets where audiences have been drawn by the scale and spectacle. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 stayed just about on par with Sunday’s estimates, but has now passed the lifetime of Catching Fire in 32 territories including Italy and Brazil — and could imminently pass Cf‘s Latin American take entirely. »

Movie Review – Whiplash (2014)

13 December 2014 1:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whiplash, 2014.

Directed by Damien Chazelle.

Starring Miles Teller, J.K. Simmons, Paul Reiser, Melissa Benoist and Austin Stowell.

Synopsis: 

Young, talented jazz drummer Andrew is pushed to boiling point by a ferocious conductor determined to find the next great, leading to confrontations of of both psychological and physical proportions.

“There are no two words in the English language more harmful,” J.K. Simmons tells us, “than ‘good job’.”  Spoken with such uninhibited truthfulness, the mantra of Terrence Fletcher, an eccentric, hot-headed conductor with a stringent desire for perfection, has the capacity to convince us he’s right.  While many of Terrence’s methods in gaining said perfection don’t so much border the line as flat-out cross it (picture throwing a chair at a drummer for missing tempo), we can’t help but hear at least a morsel of reason in his idea that if no-one was ever pushed to be great, »

Composers Scale Up Scores for Epic Projects

10 December 2014 11:07 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back in the days of “Ben-Hur” and “The Ten Commandments,” a widescreen epic was expected to be accompanied by a lavish symphonic score and, just as often, a heavenly choir.

Is that still true for today’s epics, with all the trappings from extensive CGI and 3D to 7.1 Dolby Atmos Surround sound?

Yes, for the most part, say the composers of historical, religious and fantasy films including “Noah,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” along with the author of a new book on the subject.

“Big, massed orchestral sounds, alternating with very nuanced, soloistic use of strings and winds. That’s what comes into my ear when I think of the epic style,” says Stephen C. Meyer, author of “Epic Sound: Music in Postwar Hollywood Biblical Films,” which examines the music of such classics as “Quo Vadis,” “The Robe” and “Ben-Hur.”

Benedict Cumberbatch Confirmed to Play Marvel’s Doctor Strange

4 December 2014 3:18 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Tech Support: Can Alexandre Desplat land three Oscar nominations for original score?

4 December 2014 2:36 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Academy Award for Best Original Score is one of the categories I find most interesting and most frustrating. First, the good: I love the awarding of film music, which can immeasurably improve the experience of a film and can become iconic in its own right. There is also much about the music branch that I love, particularly its international flavor, both in terms of the composers cited and the types of music rewarded. Moreover, while the category tends to favor Best Picture nominees and epic movies, it is not excessively exclusionary in this respect. But that love of epics can sometimes lead to simply rewarding "most music." More importantly, this branch is infamously insular. Unless a composer is aboard a major Best Picture contender or has otherwise composed a simply iconic score, it is unusual to earn a first nomination. And even those features are not always enough for first-timers. »

Exclusive new photos of Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley in The Imitation Game

4 December 2014 9:02 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Get used to Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley in formal wear. The two British actors continue to receive nothing but good press for their latest film, director Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game, so their continued participation in the awards race's red carpets and ceremonies is all but assured.

Surprising no one, Cumberbatch is receiving the lion’s share of the accolades for his portrayal of Alan Turing, the British code-breaker who cracked the Enigma code. Turing’s life, a tragic one in the end due to the British government’s persecution of homosexuals, has all the elements of a good British thriller (and Oscar nominee): Bletchley Park, World War II, and wool suits.

The Imitation Game's supporting cast is also stacked, boasting the likes of Matthew Goode (Stoker), Mark Strong(Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”), and Allen Leech (“Downton Abbey”).

Inside the Making of 'The Imitation Game' and Cracking the Alan Turing Code

3 December 2014 9:03 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director Morten Tyldum aptly constructs the mystery as a crossword puzzle, inspiring his crew to also think outside the box.  Production designer Maria Djukovic ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy") subverted the usual World War II drama while staying true to the spirit of Turing's troubled life: the story of an outsider and the celebration of being different because he outsmarted the Nazi Enigma code machine by constructing the first computer, only to be punished a decade later by the English homophobic code. "For me, it's important to find an aesthetic for the film that comes from reality rather than imposing something on it," Djukovic explains.  She honed in on one tiny drawing that Turing made after the war when he lived in Manchester. While building his computer, he studied morphogenesis—how forms in biology and nature create themselves, such as leopard spots, zebra stripes, the whirls on a snail shell. "There »

‘A Most Wanted Man’ is not so wanted after all in this stillborn spy thriller

1 December 2014 7:05 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A Most Wanted Man

Written for the screen by Andrew Bovell

Directed by Anton Corbijn

USA/UK/Germany, 2014

In Anton Corbijn’s foreign espionage thriller A Most Wanted Man, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman lends his take on an unconventional looking German intelligence agent, one without the usual dashing attributes associated with cinematic spies. Although sprinkled with cerebral-minded intrigue and conducting its atmospheric tension in methodical fashion, A Most Wanted Man feels relentlessly sluggish in its execution to live up to its labored political-coated drama. This low-energy, plodding spy showcase has its isolated highlights in sleek suspense, but fails to drive home any genuine revelations about its touchy subject matter regarding counter-intelligence suspicion and terrorist paranoia. Despite solid and committed performances, it’s a slow burn of a thriller that simply lingers without fortifying any convincing punch.

Corbijn’s intelligence operative narrative is based upon a John le Carré novel. »

‘Mockingjay’, ‘Interstellar’, ‘Penguins’ Lead Frame; ‘Paddington’ Charms UK: Int’l B.O.

30 November 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Despite Mockingjay and Interstellar muscle, the current frame was down more than 30% on last week, but very close to last year’s comparable weekend for the Top 10 studio titles. Indies and local films that factored big this session included Women Who Flirt ($11.5M) and Rise Of The Legend ($5.5M, cume $18M) in China; along with Paddington‘s $8.5M bear hug to the UK, Mexico and Peru.

Last year this time, Catching Fire was the big game globally, while Gravity, much like Warner Bros’ Interstellar this year, was still exerting force in China in the similar period. Also last year, Frozen was just getting its skates on for what would go on to be a record breaking run.

Next week, Korea will be the among the first overseas territories where Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods And Kings heads into action along with Mexico, Australia, Argentina, Spain and »

First Pan Images Show a Screaming Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard in Joe Wright’s Peter Pan Prequel [Updated with New Posters]

24 November 2014 8:19 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We're almost at the end of 2014, which means we're long overdue when it comes to marketing the movies of summer 2015.  Today, Warner Bros. has released the first Pan images along with what's sure to be the first of 197 character posters. The film "tells the untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds great adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan."  These images show us not only Levi Miller as Pan, but also Hugh Jackman as the villainous Blackbeard, and um…well…yeah.  None of these images are too encouraging, but I have faith in director Joe Wright.  While he does have a tendency to go overboard in his staging and visuals, his past work promises we're not going to get a run-of-the-mill Peter Pan story even though I was never all that »

Not Dead Yet: Bond 24 and Twin Peaks Season 3 Will Be Shot on Film

20 November 2014 2:56 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The number of wide releases this year that were shot on film amounts to but a handful, and despite heavy advocacy from filmmakers like Christopher Nolan and J.J. Abrams, the format has become an outlier in contrast to the near-universal use of digital.  Digital is not inherently a bad format, and some filmmakers like David Fincher are able to take full advantage of the opportunities it provides, but the fear is that the choice over whether a director can shoot on film or digital may be disappearing.  That could very well be the case in the near future, but today some relief arrived in the form of news that two highly anticipated upcoming projects will be shooting on film, keeping the format alive for a bit longer: Bond 24 and the new season of Twin Peaks.  More after the jump. We’ll start with Bond 24, which marks a curious »
