The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Four

27 December 2010 9:58 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Damsels in Distress

Opens: 2011

Cast: Adam Brody, Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Ryan Metcalf

Director: Whit Stillman

Summary: The story revolves around a group of style-obsessed college girls who take in a new student (Gerwig) and teach her their misguided ways of helping people at their grungy university.

Analysis: The first film in a decade from arthouse darling Whit Stillman, a filmmaker's filmmaker whose three Manhattan-based, yuppie-themed mannerist comedies - "Metropolitan," "Barcelona" and "The Last Days of Disco" - were a big influence on the likes of auteurs such as Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach. Stillman says this film varies somewhat from his previous trilogy of sorts, telling First Things that "This film is different, Completely different. Okay, not completely different, but it’s different".

Independently financed by Castle Rock CEO Martin Shafer, the project recently wrapped filming in Manhattan where Stillman returned to last year after having spent much »

Owf’s 52 Must See Films of 2011

24 December 2010 11:00 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Usually around this time of the year we list maybe 10 or 20 films that we think are as absolute ‘Must See’s’ for what the next 12 months of cinema has to offer us but as the clock is ticking ever closer to midnight on 2010, we thought we would challenge ourselves a little further this time around. The question I posed to the Owf staff recently was… can Cinema in 2011 produce enough ‘Must See’ films to hit 52, which would ratio out to be just one film per week? That’s all we are hopeful for here… just one film every Friday that justifies us parting with our ever increasingly important cash in these tough economic times.

Did we manage to find 52? Kind of.

There’s certainly 52 films listed here but once we got to around 30, the whole thing became a struggle and we had to fill it out disappointingly with the usual array of over-budgeted summer spectacles, »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Three

22 December 2010 9:59 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Catch .44

Opens: 2011

Cast: Forest Whitaker, Bruce Willis, Malin Akerman, Nikki Reed, Deborah Ann Woll

Director: Aaron Harvey

Summary: The story focuses on three women being thrust into an extraordinary situation involving a psychopathic hitman, a grizzled trucker and a delusional line cook.

Analysis: Oddly little is known about this indie crime comedy aside from the three lead female roles have gone through more than a couple of rounds of casting musical chairs. The likes of Maggie Grace, Kate Mara, Laura Ramsey, Sarah Roemer, Lizzy Caplan and Lauren German were all attached at one point or another before the final trio of Malin Akerman ("Watchmen"), Nikki Reed ("Twilight") and Deborah Ann Woll ("True Blood") were settled on.

Bruce Willis, Forest Whitaker, Michael Rosenbaum and Brad Dourif also star with Willis as a crime boss behind everything that happens and Whitaker as a dangerously unstable assassin. Aaron Harvey, who last directed »

Matt Damon 'Really, Really, Really' Wants To Star In Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium,' Was Almost In 'Avatar'

20 December 2010 1:36 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

Despite a distinct lack of awards-season love thus far, we're sticking to our guns and proclaiming Matt Damon's turn as ornery Texas Ranger Laboeuf (pronounced Labeef, but bearing no relation to Shia) in the Coen Bros.' badass Western "True Grit" (in theaters December 22) one of the year's finest and most entertaining performances.

With a role like that in his holster, it's no wonder that the erstwhile Jason Bourne is in as much demand as ever these days. He's already wrapped the thriller "The Adjustment Bureau" and the animated sequel "Happy Feet 2," and has a gaggle of projects -- including Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" and Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoon" -- already in the hopper. But the most recent film Damon has been linked to is perhaps the most exciting: "Elysium," a top-secret sci-fi flick that reunites "District 9" director Neill Blomkamp with star Sharlto Copley.

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

Matt Damon Pining for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

15 December 2010 7:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Matt Damon seems to be keen to keep himself busy. He has already had Green Zone out this year and his second collaboration with Clint Eastwood, Hereafter, is up next. He has wrapped True Grit for the Coens, Margaret and Philip K Dick adap The Adjustment Bureau and is now filming Contagion for Steven Soderbergh before apparently intending to move onto We Bought A Zoo  and a Liberace biopic. Whew!

After all that you would think he would fancy a lie down, but I guess when you’re hungry for work, you take the opportunities you can. Accordingly, Damon is apparently in talks to appear in Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up to the sensational District 9, Elysium. Sharlto Copley, so affecting and impressive in District 9, will appear in Elysium as well.

Nothing much is known of the film, other than it will be another entry in the sci-fi genre, this »

Blunt happy to finish 'Bureau' shoot

14 December 2010 9:58 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Emily Blunt has said that she is happy filming for The Adjustment Bureau has finished due to the strict fitness regime and diet she had to endure. Blunt, who plays a ballerina in the film, claimed that it was the most challenging role of her career due to the amount of physical strain the part demanded of her.

Blunt: 'Playing A Ballerina On Film Was An Endurance Test'

13 December 2010 2:06 PM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Emily Blunt is glad her stint as a movie ballerina in new film The Adjustment Bureau is over - because now she can get back to eating her favourite food.

The Young Victoria star insists the role was the most challenging thing she has ever done, and she hated her diet.

She tells WENN, "It's an endurance test physically because you are effectively living the life of an athlete for months on end. I'd work out for two hours a day and dance for three hours a day, six days a week, and I ate nothing but chicken, salad and veg, which I hate - because I eat like a truck driver."

And Blunt now thinks all ballerinas are mad for striving for perfection at all times: "They're all weirdos. All of those dancers are striving for that ethereal precision and it's their whole existence. They don't know who they are if they can't dance.

"I found it very hard because I never danced before. It was so alien to me but it's soul building doing something that embarrasses and terrifies you until you get to the point where you can pass as a dancer. The trainers from Cedar Lake modern dance company were very tough on me saying things like, 'Put your shoulders down, it looks terrible. Your arms look weird...' They don't want some actress misrepresenting how brilliant they are and kind of waltzing in thinking, 'I can do it,' because I couldn't do it... It was exhausting." »

Matt Damon Going To Another Planet; In Talks To Join Blomkamp’s Elysium

13 December 2010 12:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Last week we reported that director Neill Blomkamp was moving forward on his second big-screen outing, the sci-fi project entitled, Elysium. We also told you that Sharlto Copley, the star of  the director’s blockbuster, District 9 had already signed on to star in the film.

Now, Deadline reports that actor Matt Damon (True Grit, The Adjustment Bureau) is in talks to join the cast of the film. What role he could play will likely be a mystery for quite some time, Blomkamp has been fairly tight-lipped about Elysium and has only said,

“…I’ve got one science fiction idea that I’m absolutely in love with, which I’m pretty sure is going to be my next film. 99% sure…It’s totally original, it’s my own story…It’s set on another planet, but it’s cool. It’s violent, very violent, and very unique hopefully. We’ll see… »

Matt Damon in talks to star in Neill Blomkamp's Elysium

13 December 2010 8:12 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor reportedly in early stages of negotiations for District 9 director's next science-fiction project

Matt Damon is in talks to star in the next science fiction project from Neill Blomkamp, whose debut film District 9 was nominated for four Academy Awards earlier this year.

Blomkamp has pitched Elysium as a tale of the far future on another planet, though the term traditionally refers to a section of the underworld in Greek mythology (the Elysian Fields, or Elysian Plains, were the final resting places of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous). The film will once again star Sharlto Copley, the South African actor who was the breakout star of District 9, and has apparently managed to emerge unscathed from his turn as "Howling Mad" Murdock in The A-Team movie earlier this year.

Deadline reports that Damon is in the early stage of negotiations. Blomkamp is keeping details of Elysium under wraps, »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

Matt Damon in Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

11 December 2010 2:51 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium is coming and according to the newest reports, Matt Damon is in early negotiations to star in it, together with District 9 star Sharlto Copley.

And that’s basically all we had chance to hear about this “secret” project, although “the story is said to take place on another planet in the distant future.”

Still, let us remind you what director Blomkamp shared with us over the past year:

”…I’ve got one science fiction idea that I’m absolutely in love with, which I’m pretty sure is going to be my next film. 99% sure…It’s totally original, it’s my own story…It’s set on another planet, but it’s cool. It’s violent, very violent, and very unique hopefully. We’ll see…

It is science fiction and it has many sociopolitical ideas that interest me. Those ideas are wrapped up inside »

Matt Damon May Join Neill Blomkamp’s Sci-Fi Adventure ‘Elysium’

10 December 2010 12:43 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We don’t make a habit of covering unofficial casting announcements because they invariably end up changing shortly thereafter, but we make exceptions when the talent involved make us tingle. Such is the case with this latest bit of news involving Matt Damon and District 9 director, Neill Blomkamp. Deadline Pogo is reporting that Damon is in negotiations to star in Blomkamp’s upcoming film Elysium. Sharlto Copley has previously been announced to star in the science fiction film that has so far seen plot details kept under wraps. Copley of course starred in Blomkamp’s surprise hit debut as well as The A-Team. If it happens this would only be Damon’s second foray into live action science fiction. This March sees the release of The Adjustment Bureau co-starring Emily Blunt. The film is based on a Philip K. Dick story, and while it’s been delayed already more than once it remains one we’re »

Matt Damon Journeying to Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

10 December 2010 10:15 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Looks like Neill Blomkamp’s “Elysium”, his follow-up to his surprise hit “District 9″, is about to land its A-list male lead. Deadline is reporting that Matt Damon is currently in “early talks” to join the secretive sci-fi project (what isn’t nowadays in Hollywood?). If he ends up joining, Damon will star alongside Sharlto Copley, Blomkamp’s “District 9″ star, and the film’s first official castmember. “Elysium” will take place on an alien planet and set in the far-future, and that’s really all we know about the film so far. Damon can next be seen in the sci-fi movie “The Adjustment Bureau” with Emily Blunt. »

Matt Damon In Talks To Join Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium'

10 December 2010 7:55 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Matt Damon is in early negotiations to star in Neill Blomkamp's scifi film Elysium for Media Rights Capital. Damon will join District 9's Sharlto Copley in a film that is shrouded in secrecy. While a Damon commitment--they're in the early stages of deal making right now--will make Elysium a more enticing piece of business, Mrc won't take it out to distributors until next year. It will come to the market when it has its major cast. This will be the second Mrc project for Damon, who stars with Emily Blunt in the George Nolfi-directed The Adjustment Bureau. That film, which is based on a Philip K. Dick short story, will be released by Universal in March. Damon, who starred for Clint Eastwood in Hereafter for Warner Bros, next stars in the Coen Brothers drama True Grit. He's repped by Wme. »
