News Briefs: First Look at Ewan McGregor in 'Last Days in the Desert'; Kirsten Dunst Heads to TV's 'Fargo'

11 December 2014 6:33 AM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Last Days in the Desert: Ewan McGregor plays both Jesus and the Devil in Last Days in the Desert, which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.

10 Producers to Watch: Dimitri Rassam

11 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There have been many movies about the infamous Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar in the starting blocks for years but it took a Frenchman, Rassam, to deliver the first narrative feature about him in “Escobar: Paradise Lost.” Starring Benicio Del Toro and Josh Hutcherson, the film earned critical kudos at its Toronto festival preem in September.

In the past eight years, Rassam has succeeded in raising the financing for some of France’s biggest-budgeted English-language movies, such as “Upside Down” (estimated budget: $40 million) and the upcoming animated feature “The Little Prince” (budget: $77 million), directed by “Kung Fu Panda” co-helmer Mark Osborne with a voice cast that includes James Franco, Marion Cotillard and Rachel McAdams.

Rassam, who launched On Entertainment with his longtime associate Aton Soumache in January, is prepping a move to L.A. in March. “I already travel there 10 to 12 times a year, and I’m now really looking »

15 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris and Andy Garcia are in negotiations to join Gerard Butler in the sci-fi adventure Geostorm for Warner Bros. and Skydance.

Gerard Butler stars as a satellite engineer who learns that the world's climate-control satellites are malfunctioning, forcing him to team up with his estranged brother (Jim Sturgess) to stop a man-made storm from destroying the Earth. While the engineer travels into space to fix the satellites, his brother discovers a plot to assassinate the President of the United States (Andy Garcia). Abbie Cornish will play a Secret Service agent who is also the brother's girlfriend, while Ed Harris is portraying the Secretary of State.

Dean Devlin is directing Geostorm from a script he originally wrote, which is now being worked on by Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows). Skydance's David Ellison and Dana Goldberg are producing alongside Dean Devlin »

50 brilliant movie opening credits sequences

25 June 2014 2:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From a range of eras and genres, here's Jenny and Alex's light-hearted pick of 50 great opening title sequences from the movies...

Odd List

We don’t go to the cinema much, because we hate people. We also don’t go because there’s always the risk of accidentally going to see the wrong film. It's not helped by the fact that there's no way of telling until it’s too late, because there are no bloody opening credits on lots of modern films. And by the time you do realise, you’ve eaten all your popcorn and you can’t be bothered to move.

The movies on this list won’t give you that problem. These opening credits are perfect scene setters for the movies that follow, so you won’t have to worry about awkward popcorn wasting moments. It's not a top 50, rather a selection of 50 interesting credits sequences, »

Film Review: 'Patema Inverted'

2 May 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆Here's a film that Hollywood should be planning to remake; essentially a feature-length version of the zero gravity scenes from Christopher Nolan's Inception (2010), which shares even closer DNA with the Kirsten Dunst Us box office bomb Upside Down (2012). Bold and beautiful, this is a wonderful example of the anime aesthetic, but not its storytelling prowess. Patema Inverted (2013) takes place in a world divided by gravitational fields. Our heroine is the eponymous Patema (Fujii Yukiyo), a princess from the underground world built by the sufferers of reverse gravity. Whilst exploring, she falls through a vent and finds herself in the real world, where she's in constant danger of falling into the wide open sky below.

2014 Les Jutras: Archambault’s Gabrielle Wins Best Director & Screenplay, Louis Cyr Outmuscles Pack for Best Film

23 March 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

In a year that saw François Delisle’s Le météore (Sundance and Berlin Film Festival accepted film) receive no love (zero nominations), and Denis Côté’s critically well-received Vic + Flo Saw a Bear was perhaps too askew for the voting clique (it did grab best Actress for Quebec’s “Melissa Leo” in Pierrette Robitaille), it was a bigger than life biopic by helmer Daniel Roby that flexed its muscles, beating out the comp. The high gloss Louis Cyr won in several tech categories and it’s strongman Antoine Bertrand won for Best Actor. Considered the favorite to win the top prize, Gabrielle was awarded the Best Director and Screenplay awards for Louise Archambault. Oddly, that film received no Best Actress consideration while it did net Gabrielle Marion-Rivard a Best Actress win at Canadian Screen Awards. Here are the noms and winners of the 16th edition.

SXSW 2014 Review: ‘Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton: This is Stones Throw Records’ Ambitiously Pushes the Conventions of Music Documentaries

15 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Despite the fact that recording studios and record labels have long served to showcase a variety of musical talents, recent music documentaries on such subjects have framed their histories in largely genre-specific terms. Though Rick Springfield was one the studio’s biggest names, Dave Grohl’s Sound City was steadfast in its thesis that L.A.’s Sound City was the home of uncompromising, authentic rock. Danny O’Connor’s Upside Down similarly saw Creation Records’ promotion of both punk and New Wave as fitting a consistent definition of British rebellion. Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton, Jeff Broadway’s history of Los Angeles-based Stones Throw Records, refuses to make a false, simplified equivalence between label and genre. The documentary instead makes the case that a good label produces interesting work and develops talented, envelope-pushing artists by encouraging creative change and throwing caution to the wind. Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton decisively rejects genre borders by arguing that »

Album review: Pharrell Williams' 'G I R L' will make you 'Happy'

3 March 2014 2:28 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pharrell Williams’ “G I R L” may open with a flourish of strings and have a few tastefully arranged string parts scattered throughout  (courtesy of Williams’ scoring collaborator, composer and arranger Hans Zimmer), but the album is anything but high minded.The whole idea with with “G I R L” is to have some fun. The terminally upbeat album, out today, highlights Williams’ strength: he makes really crisp, sonically pleasing songs that reference his influences, such as Michael Jackson, and his colleagues, like Justin Timberlake. This is pop music that aims to lift your spirits in the moment. Even if it evaporates into thin air shortly thereafter and is not particularly inventive, the music on “G I R L” is an enjoyable diversion. As the title suggests, “G I R L,” Williams’ first solo album since 2006’s “In My Mind,” covers the fairer sex and Williams’ desires for women who »

Sherlock: 10 Crazy Twists That Would Turn The Show Upside Down

5 February 2014 10:46 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC

If there’s one thing that the Sherlock writers enjoy more than anything else, it’s a mind-blowing plot twist to make their audience shout at the television, very loudly.

Series 3 was no different, with Moffat and Gatiss revealing in the dying seconds of ‘His Last Vow’ that actually, Jim Moriarty, the lunatic himself, is alive and well. It’s a cliffhanger that’s left so many questions about the future of the show and generated a heap more hype to keep the fans talking about Sherlock, and the genius is that it’s such a simple twist; it’s literally the same one they pulled just a series prior, too.

It certainly leaves the Sherlockians thinking. Fandoms are like the oceans – the deeper you go, the darker they get – and in the case of the Sherlock fandom, the more we wait, the weirder our theories become. Here are ten of the bizarrest, »

’24: Live Another Day’ Teaser Trailer Turns UK Upside Down

3 February 2014 11:18 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

24 was such a great TV series. It took a fascinating concept and changed the way we looked at TV. Sure, it got a bit silly in places, and sometimes the stories seemed too stretch in order to fill out all 24 hours, but overall is was a fantastic and explosive action series on the small-screen. Then hallelujah it’s returning, but not only that but it’s coming to the UK. This tasty teaser lets us know we’re in for something very epic, as well as giving us a quick look at Jack (Kiefer Sutherland) and Chloe O’Brien (Mary Lynn Rajskub). The original series ran from 2001 to 2010, so hopefully the 4 year break has given everyone some much deserved breathing space. It must be difficult to keep a show going for so long without rest, so us fans will be expecting some brand new ideas.

The new Mercedes-Benz chicken advert

31 January 2014 11:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

'The poor poultry is swung about by bodiless, white-gloved hands, like a butler amusing Downton Abbey's guests with the oddest pre-dinner cabaret ever'

Reading this on mobile? Click here to view

As the saying goes, there are three certainties in life: death, taxes and the fact that dancing animals make us powerless to resist buying the things we've seen in adverts. The moonwalking pony that tricked us all into signing up to 3, the drumming gorilla in the Cadbury's ad and now, the chickens forced to disco against their will in the current Mercedes-Benz commercial. Will the humiliation of our furry/feathered friends never cease? The advert kicks off eye-to-eye with a chicken that's thrusting like it's having sex, so there's that image of a horny cockerel you didn't want. It soon becomes clear that, actually, the chicken, along with its chicken mates, is "dancing" – or, y'know, being forced to dance. »

'The Bachelor'. Recap: Juan Pablo Galavis Sends Lucy Aragon & Christy Hansen Home

20 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The Bachelor, back for the first time since Juan Pablo Galavis remarked that there shouldn't be a gay bachelor, included a pair of one-on-one dates and a group date to the soccer field.

'The Bachelor' Recap

For his first one-on-one, Juan Pablo picked Cassandra Ferguson, the 21-year-old NBA dancer who has a 2-year-old son named Trey. Last week, Cassandra shared her reservations about staying away from her son without knowing if Juan Pablo had any feelings for her. With it in mind that he’d send her home if he didn’t feel a connection, Juan Pablo tried to put his date at ease.

Apparently there’s no better way to settle one’s nerves that driving them into the water in an aquatic jeep. Once in the water, Juan Pablo sped up the vehicle for a little joy ride with a giggling Cassandra by his side. He »
