Film Review: Jupiter Ascending

6 February 2015 10:08 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In a stunning fall from grace, the directing duo of the Wachowskis have gone from changing the sci-fi landscape with their influential 1999 movie The Matrix to a bizarre pastiche of half-thought-out genre tropes and tired plot details with the incredibly leaden Jupiter Ascending. The movie is like a big budget movie version of one of those embarrassingly awful hard-sci-fi e-books that lousy would-be authors self-publish on Amazon. They hardly make any sense, they’re full of half-thought-out steampunk-inflected bullshit, and they have a hilariously bad sense of epic grandeur. You can’t fault the Wachowskis for trying to go all out given the way they have tried to make themselves auteurs that best match style and substance, but Jupiter Ascending may have gone a bit too far.

Mila Kunis plays Jupiter Jones, a lowly Russian émigré who now lives in Chicago with her huge family who cleans rich people’s toilets just to scrape by. »

Editors Guild Selects 75 Best Edited Films of All Time

4 February 2015 8:26 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Now this is a list that could result in a lot of fascinating dissection and thanks to HitFix it comes to our attention almost three years after it was originally released back in 2012, celebrating the Motion Picture Editors Guild's 75th anniversary. Over at HitFix, Kris Tapley asks, "Is this news to anyone elsec" Um, yes, I find it immensely interesting and a perfect starting point for anyone looking to further explore the art of film editing. In an accompanying article we get the particulars concerning what films were eligible and how films were to be considered: In our Jan-feb 12 issue, we asked Guild members to vote on what they consider to be the Best Edited Films of all time. Any feature-length film from any country in the world was eligible. And by "Best Edited," we explained, we didn't just mean picture; sound, music and mixing were to be considered as well. »

What is the best-edited film of all time according to those who do the job?

3 February 2015 8:43 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A random bit of researching on a Tuesday night led me to something I didn't know existed: The Motion Picture Editors Guild's list of the 75 best-edited films of all time. It was a feature in part celebrating the Guild's 75th anniversary in 2012. Is this news to anyone else? I confess to having missed it entirely. Naturally, I had to dig in. What was immediately striking to me about the list — which was decided upon by the Guild membership and, per instruction, was considered in terms of picture and sound editorial as opposed to just the former — was the most popular decade ranking. Naturally, the 1970s led with 17 mentions, but right on its heels was the 1990s. I wouldn't have expected that but I happen to agree with the assessment. Thelma Schoonmaker's work on "Raging Bull" came out on top, an objectively difficult choice to dispute, really. It was so transformative, »

New Concept Art for 'Tomorrowland'

3 February 2015 7:39 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

At my Super Bowl party there was a ton of eye-rolling and "Really?!"s from people when the trailer for Tomorrowland came on. I totally understand the skepticism. Hell, I even chimed in with "Wait'll next year, when Wolfgang Peterson's Teacups 3D comes out!" But, really, I think people need to be more open-minded about this film. First of all, if the success of the first couple of Pirates of The Caribbean flicks is any indication, Disney knows how to turn a theme park attraction into an epic adventure. Secondly, look at the pedigree. You've go Brad Bird in the director's chair- a man who's never steered us wrong- and you've got Hollywood royalty George Clooney.

This thing has the potential to be very, very good.

Anyway, Disney has released some brand spankin' new concept art for Tomorrowland, which you can check out below:

Emma Watson, best known as Harry Potter’s bookish best friend Hermione Granger, announced that she will be Disney’s next princess – Belle! The Brown University graduate will be bringing her enviable combination of brains and beauty to Bill Condon’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been an announcement about who will play the Beast to Emma’s “Beauty.”

Who will be the Beast? We went through all the working heartthrobs of Hollywood, and picked our top candidates for the role.

Chris Pine

Can he sing? Yes. Chris starred in the adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods. Age: 34 (10 years older than Emma) Known For: Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit We asked you on Facebook and Twitter who you’d like to be Disney’s next prince. Chris Pine was the popular choice. Two other Chrises – Hemsworth and Evans – were very close behind in the votes. »

Frederique Bredin – ‘Revision of the tax rebate schemes will reinforce France’s position as a leading film production hub’

28 January 2015 10:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fifty-seven-year old Frederique Bredin has been president of French cinema agency the Cnc since 2013. Her previous posts include director general of Lagardere Active, editor of newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche, minister for youth and sports from 1991-93, and national secretary for the Socialist Party, responsible for culture and communication between 1995 and 2000. The Cnc is responsible for overseeing French film support policy, including the design of the Trip tax rebate program for international productions, which was upwardly revised in December 2014. In this interview she discusses with Variety her key objectives for the near future.

By strengthening the Trip international tax rebate program, which is now a strong and competitive tax incentive, especially vis-à-vis the U.K., France intends to attract high-budget U.S. blockbusters. How do you view the functioning of Trip in 2014, and the outlook for 2015, in terms of major international productions?

Dark Was The Night Scores Domestic Distribution

28 January 2015 7:28 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Monster films seem to be having a nice little comeback. We seem to be venturing away from the “Grindhouse” homage films, the torture porn films and the other tropes the genre got stuck in. A film that is on my radar is Dark Was The Night, which was adapted from a screenplay that was on The Blacklist a few years back. We just got word that we shouldn’t have to wait too long to see this flick starring Kevin Durand (The Strain) and Lukas Haas (Lady in White, Inception, Brick). Read below for the official word. We’ve also included a trailer that was posted last year for the film.

Image Entertainment, an Rlj Entertainment (Nasdaq: Rlje) brand, has acquired the North American distribution rights for Caliber Media’s Dark Was The Night, directed by Jack Heller (Enter Nowhere), after the film’s premiere at »

More On Hardy's "Suicide Squad" Departure

16 January 2015 9:40 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Yesterday came word that "Inception" and "Mad Max" actor Tom Hardy had pulled out of playing Rick Flagg in David Ayer's adaptation of the DC Comics title "Suicide Squad" at Warner Bros. Pictures.

The official reason given is that Hardy is experiencing scheduling conflicts with his current project "The Revenant" along with his promotional duties on "Mad Max: Fury Road."

Latino Review on the other hand has a report today indicating Hardy apparently backed out after learning about some "drastic changes to his character" in the script. The various actors cast in the film reportedly didn't get the script before signing on, and when he did he didn't like it.

Specifically the new draft of the script gives more screen time to Deadshot and The Joker, as a result Rick Flagg is featured less and this change may have contributed to his exit. Even so, he apparently left the project under amicable terms. »

Tom Hardy Exits Suicide Squad; Jake Gyllenhaal Eyed As Replacement

15 January 2015 12:08 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

David Ayer’s villainous comic book caper, Suicide Squad, has lost a key player today. The news comes courtesy of THR, who report that Inception and Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy has bowed out of the picture. Originally signed on to lead the ragtag bunch of nefarious baddies as Squad leader Rick Flag, Hardy’s juicy role is now back on the market.

After weeks of rumoured chatter, late last year Hardy was cast in the pivotal role. His name was announced alongside a starry line-up that includes Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevigne as Enchantress, and Jared Leto as The Joker.

As yet we don’t know the reason why Hardy exited the picture, although it’s thought that his involvement in The Revenant might be a contributing factor. The shooting schedule for the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu-helmed drama has been pushed back, »

Interstellar Got Robbed, Why It Deserved Way More Oscar Nominations

15 January 2015 7:27 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Academy Award nominations have been officially announced, and already there's a lot to talk about in terms of what made it and what didn't. One of the biggest snubs in this year's interesting, if not milder than usual, Oscar race is the fact that Interstellar only received nods for Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design, Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Score. That's right... Interstellar is the new Transformers. It dominates the tech categories, but fails to do much else in the major categories. Categories like Best Director, which has seen Christopher Nolan snubbed time and time again for the work he's put in on films like Inception and The Prestige, as well as The Dark Knight trilogy. For a man who's usually cited as being technically proficient, but emotionally sterile, Nolan's efforts in bringing his talents to a more Spielbergian project were successful enough on Interstellar »

10 Stupid Arguments About Chris Nolan That Don’t Make Sense

14 January 2015 1:08 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros. Pictures

Christopher Nolan is probably the most critically acclaimed director working today. His films routinely smash box office records without breaking a sweat. Seven of the nine films he has made so far are seemingly permanent fixtures in the IMDb Top 250. And, perhaps most crucially, he isn’t really to blame for either Transcendence (directed by his regular Dp) or Man Of Steel (which he nominally produced).

You can spot a Nolan production a mile off, but in a good way: prestige cast, stunning camera work, innovative plotting and a whole bunch of smart ideas and unsolved questions that’ll have you puzzling to make sense of it all on the drive home. He’s earned his reputation through a filmography of entertaining, enrapturing and thought-provoking cinema.

Oh and Batman, he did Batman too. Those are fun. As tends to happen when somebody achieves such great heights, however, »

Can Divisive Responses Lead Directors to Oscar Noms?

12 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With a number of critically and commercially successful films to their names, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher and Paul Thomas Anderson have their admirers, those who assume they could do no wrong. But there are those who are divided in their opinions. Nolan’s Interstellar and Fincher’s Gone Girl topped the domestic box office when they were released and currently hold the No. 15 and No. 17 spots, respectively, for the highest-grossing films in the domestic box office for 2014; however, the films received mixed reviews from Academy members and critics. Anderson’s Inherent Vice expanded nationwide Jan. 9, and while some loved the drug-fueled dark comedy, others were lost in the haze.

 The question surrounding these three directors is can these men land Oscar nominations Thursday despite the divisive response their films collected?

 Well, both Fincher and Anderson have received Oscar nominations for directing in past years.

2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Sound Editing

8 January 2015 10:59 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the 87th Academy Award nominations through January 2015, when the nominations are announced. Here are our predictions for Best Sound Editing, in which "Interstellar" likely has a a much better shot than in Best Sound Mixing. Notably, Christopher Nolan films have taken this prize twice in the recent past -- both "The Dark Knight" and "Inception" won. But there have been many critics of the sound in "Interstellar," so its no shoo-in. War films like "Fury," "American Sniper" and "Unbroken" and blockbusters like "Godzilla," "Transformers," "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" give it a lot of competition. Check out our predictions in other categories here. Strong Contenders: 1. "American Sniper" 2. "Godzilla" 3. "Fury" 4. »
