What I Watched, What You Watched #298

31 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This was a rather busy week for me in theaters, at least last Wednesday was when I saw both Aloha and San Andreas on the same day. Then on Thursday I saw Pixar's Inside Out. This coming week is similarly packed with screenings of Entourage, Spy and Insidious 3. Otherwise, I re-watched the final three episodes of "Hannibal" season two in preparation for the coming of the third season premiere this Thursday and I also watched This is Where I Leave You, which I never saw last year. Well, to be more precise, I made no effort to see it as I didn't really feel like it was a high priority watch for me. It looked like a funny, well-made comedy with a fine cast and, guess what, that's exactly what it ended up being. Nothing major, but a perfectly fine movie with several laughs and good performances, most notable were Jane Fonda, »

‘Banshee’ Co-Creator Signs Overall with HBO and Cinemax

28 May 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Banshee” co-creator Jonathan Tropper has closed a two-year overall deal at HBO/Cinemax, Variety has learned.

Under the deal, Tropper will continue to executive produce the Cinemax drama he created with David Schickler. He will also direct an episode of the upcoming fourth season of “Banshee.”

The overall also allows Tropper to grow his production company Tropper Ink with projects for both HBO and Cinemax. He will continue to create, write and executive produce shows, but will also supervise and executive produce projects with other writers and directors.

Tropper’s plate has been full lately. In addition to writing an episode of Terence Winter’s untitled rock ‘n roll project for HBO, he and director Greg Yaitanes recently sold the one-hour drama “American Body Plant” to Cinemax. The two will exec produce the project, which was created by and will be written by Jennifer Ames and Steve Turner.

Disney Animation Welcomes Ginnifer Goodwin & Jason Bateman To Zootopia

6 May 2015 6:13 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Walt Disney Animation Studios has announced the addition of Ginnifer Goodwin and Jason Bateman to Zootopia, Disney’s 2016 animated feature set in a modern mammal metropolis. Goodwin (ABC’s “Once Upon a Time,” “Something Borrowed,” “Walk the Line”) will lend her voice to an optimistic bunny named Judy Hopps who’s new to Zootopia’s police department.

Jason Bateman (“Horrible Bosses 2,” “This is Where I Leave You”) voices the scamming fox, Nick Wilde, who Judy reluctantly teams up with to crack her first case.

“We knew that ‘Zootopia’ would only succeed if we found the perfect actors to play our main characters,” said director Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”). “This rabbit- and fox-duo are in practically every scene in the film together. After meeting Ginnifer, we knew she embodied Hopps, the ultimate pure-of-heart, idealist bunny. You fall in love with her character instantly. And for Nick Wilde, our cynical con-artist fox, »

Arrested Development: Katz’s Debut an Affectionate Familial Dramedy

A familiar yet generally charming vehicle that impressively utilizes a pair of actors known mostly from a mainstream comedic realm, Adult Beginners is a low-key dramedy assembled from unpredictable voices. Premiering at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival before making its Us bow at SXSW earlier in 2015, it serves as producer Ross Katz’s feature debut (previously he directed the 2009 television drama Taking Chance, starring Kevin Bacon), with Nick Kroll credited with the story, and a screenplay penned by Liz Flahive (“Nurse Jackie”) and Jeff Cox (Blades of Glory, 2007). Neither as broadly comedic or serious minded as the credits would seem to indicate, the title serves as an estranged sibling reunion film that plays like the lighter, rosy faced cousin of last year’s The Skeleton Twins. Produced by the increasingly philanthropic Duplass Bros., the film displays the sort of vibrant charm »

Lone Star Cinema: Fort Bliss

15 April 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

It's nonsensical that actress Michelle Monaghan isn't a bigger name in Hollywood. She is an excellent foil to Robert Downey Jr. in cult dark comedy Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and inspires Jake Gyllenhaal in Source Code. She was even in the lauded first season of True Detective (which I didn't watch). Fort Bliss, a film written and directed by Claudia Myers, is a special treat for Monaghan fans. Instead of supporting an A-list actor onscreen, Monaghan gets her chance to lead a film.

She plays Staff Sgt. Maggie Swann, recently returned from service in Afghanistan. Maggie is an army medic, quick to respond to injuries in the field, yet thrown by the changes that have occurred while she's been abroad. Her young son Paul (Oakes Fegley, This Is Where I Leave You) has lived with Maggie's ex-husband Richard (Ron Livingston, Office Space) and grown extremely close to Richard's new wife Alma (Emmanuelle Chriqui, »

Jason Bateman and Joel Edgerton face the past in first trailer for the thriller The Gift

2 April 2015 9:51 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The past has some unfinished business with Jason Bateman in The Gift, the new thriller from writer-director-actor Joel Edgerton.

Simon (Bateman) and his wife Robyn (Rebecca Hall) are attempting to reinvigorate their marriage with a change of location.  Their seemingly-idyllic life is sent into a tailspin when an estranged “friend” from Simon’s past turns up unannounced.  Gordo “The Weirdo” (Edgerton) holds a horrifying secret from Simon’s bygone days and his increasingly unwanted presence in the couple’s life threatens to blow their world apart.

The film is a shift in tone for Bateman, who we’re more used to seeing as the relative straight man in comedies like Horrible Bosses and “Arrested Development,” or the voice of reason in This is Where I Leave You.  This is also a new outlet for Edgerton who is no stranger in front of the camera.  The Gift is Edgerton’s first »

Joel Edgerton gets behind the directing chair for paranoid thriller, ‘The Gift’

1 April 2015 4:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Simon says….look out for Joel Edgerton and his goatee.

The first trailer for The Gift was released on Wednesday, which marks the directorial debut of The Great Gatsby and Exodus star Joel Edgerton. The paranoid thriller also stars Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall.

Edgerton has been a solid actor for some time now with bit parts in multiple movies, both big and small, and this film looks like it has a lot going for it. From the trailer, it seems to be in the same vein as popular horror thrillers such as Insidious (and actually shares a producer with that movie) and could possibly work with a mass audience. Edgerton has only directed short films up to this point, but The Gift could be a step into bigger movies.

The cast is great with Bateman diving into drama, which he has been doing recently with Disconnect and This Is Where I Leave You, »

Where have all the lesbians gone in TV and film?

25 March 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Lesbian characters are meeting tragic fates in television dramas such as Call the Midwife and Last Tango in Halifax – we need more voices out there

We’ve all done it. You’re watching a movie and you let out a yelp in fright; or guffaw at a comedic moment line; or simply cheer. And then you realise: it’s in the middle of the night on a long haul flight and you’ve woken up half the cabin. My most recent on-board cheer was a small but significant moment because it was the first lesbian moment I had seen in a movie for what seemed like forever.

It was at the end of This is Where I Leave You, where a widowed Jane Fonda snogs the face off her female neighbour. It wasn’t a long moment. The kiss lasted about 10 seconds and the dialogue after it around two minutes. »

Steve Coogan Is Happyish In Trailer For The Upcoming Showtime Series

12 March 2015 5:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Audiences will soon be getting Happyish, as the highly anticipated Showtime series finally makes its debut next month. The show that was initially beset by tragedy – as original star Philip Seymour Hoffman passed away – has respectfully re-cast, re-grouped and re-shot, and a snippet of the result is now available in a new trailer. Striking a much lighter tone than expected, Happyish now stars Steve Coogan, employing an accent that is perhaps best described as ‘American-ish.’

Thom Payne (Coogan) has hit his mid-40s, and is facing the prospect of working for a new, younger, more hip boss who has assumed control of his workplace. A bundle of contradictions, Thom is concerned about erectile dysfunction, but worries that chemical remedies may counteract his anti-depressants. He loathes the current youth-focused trends, but tries his best to make skinny jeans work. Mostly, he wonders if he could be happier, but suspects that this »

Nick Kroll And Rose Byrne Are Adult Beginners In New Dramedy Trailer

11 March 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Eschewing his usual schtick of portraying unlikeable characters, Parks & Recreation‘s Nick Kroll is making a change for the better in Adult Beginners. The festival darling hails from director Ross Katz and stars Kroll as troubled New Yorker Jake. After a professional mishap, Jake returns to his childhood abode to crash with his sister Justine (Rose Byrne) and her husband Danny (Bobby Cannavale). A part of their agreement finds the unemployed Jake lumbered with taking care of the couple’s three-year old son.

On the basis of its bare-bones story, Adult Beginners sounds like the majority of adult-aimed comedies. A smattering of high brow sarcasm combined with a few slapstick scenes wrapped together with a convenient moral bow. Delve a little deeper into this trailer though, and the proof may be in the pudding.

While Byrne and Cannavale bring their usual A-game mix of comedy, it’s Kroll who elevates »

Digital Tracking: ‘Chappie’ Has ‘Unfinished Business’ to Contend With at the Box Office

6 March 2015 12:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? Moviepilot – which studies social data and box office trends – analyzes this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is laid out in the appendix below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Chappie,” Sony

Moviepilot Prediction: $14 million

Chappie” is “District 9” director Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up to “Elysium,” featuring Sharlto Copley from his band of frequent collaborators, South African rap duo Die Antwoord and Hugh Jackman. The sci-fi genre has been difficult to predict of late, with misses for big-budget titles like “Jupiter Ascending” mixed in with surprise smashes like last summer’s “Lucy.”

Chappie” will be looking to get males into theaters, with digital efforts particularly targeting younger moviegoers. »

Justified’s Timothy Olyphant Boards Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden Film

20 February 2015 6:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

FX’s Justified is just weeks away from the finale of its sixth and final season, but star Timothy Olyphant doesn’t need to worry about being out of work once it’s curtains for the acclaimed drama. Deadline reveals that the actor is negotiating a deal to join Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley in Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden pic.

Olyphant will portray a CIA agent who befriended Snowden before the American contractor, who leaked thousands of classified documents that he acquired while working for the Nsa, fled to Russia seeking asylum.

The actor was last seen on screen in ill-received dramedy This is Where I Leave You, but he’s known to TV aficionados not only for Justified but also for his stints on Deadwood and The Office. This latest project is sure to send his stock soaring even higher.

Timothy Olyphant Joins Oliver Stone’s Edward Snowden Movie

19 February 2015 5:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justified” star Timothy Olyphant has joined Oliver Stone’s untitled movie about whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shailene Woodley and Melissa Leo are also signed up for the project with Open Road Films and Endgame Entertainment teaming on the U.S. release.

Stone and longtime producing partner Moritz Borman acquired the rights last year to two books — “Time of the Octopus,” a novel written by Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, and Luke Harding’s “The Snowden Files, The Inside Story of the World’s Most Wanted Man” — as sources for Stone’s screenplay. Borman is producing with Eric Kopeloff.

Snowden was charged in 2013 by the U.S. Department of Justice with two counts of violating the Espionage Act and theft of government property and his passport was revoked a week later by the U.S. Department of State. He was granted temporary asylum by Russia last year.

Disney Tops Home Video Sales Charts With ‘Alexander,’ ‘101 Dalmatians’

18 February 2015 5:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney Studios snatched the two top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ending Feb. 15 with two family-friendly features that debuted on the bigscreen more than half a century apart.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” a live-action comedy with Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner that earned $66.9 million during its fall 2014 theatrical run, debuted at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks total disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined.

The animated classic “101 Dalmatians,” which debuted on the bigscreen in 1961 but only became available on Blu-ray last week, debuted at No. 2, selling a respectable 78% as many units as “Alexander,” Nielsen data shows.

On Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray sales chart, the order was reversed, with “101 Dalmatians” bowing at No. 1 and “Alexander” scoring a distant No. 2 finish, selling just one-third as many high-definition discs as the animated classic.

12 February 2015 9:41 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a close battle for the top-selling disc the week ending Feb. 8, a reboot of one of Universal’s classic monster franchises narrowly outsold the latest Keanu Reeves actioner.
