The Notable Films of 2010: Part Seven

29 December 2009 7:16 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mother and Child

Opens: 2010

Cast: Naomi Watts, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Kerry Washington

Director: Rodrigo Garcia

Summary: A tale of a mother and daughter, separated at birth, who struggle with the damage done by the most important person missing in their lives while a young African-Americn woman deals with an unwanted pregnancy and the adoption process.

Analysis: Scoring rave reviews in Toronto, the $7 million latest effort of Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her") once again shows off his skill at weaving multiple narratives together in clever and unexpected ways. At its heart it's an emotional family drama, but Garcia excels with his female characters which makes the involvement of Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington and especially Annette Benning thrilling.

The few criticisms levelled at the film were toward some pacing and credibility issues in the last act, but otherwise praised it for not »

Mark Wahlberg Hates David Beckham for Ruining His Neighborhood

28 December 2009 11:05 PM, PST | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Some people might be thrilled of having David Beckham and Victoria Adams as their neighbors, but that doesn't happen with Mark Wahlberg. In fact, he is a little upset over the Beckhams' move to his Beverly Hills neighborhood in Los Angeles, claiming that the Beckhams have "ruined the neighborhood."

"Man, the Beckhams. It used to be so quiet on my road. Then David moves in with his family. Suddenly we've got paparazzi hanging out day and night," the "Max Payne" actor shared, as quoted by the Daily Mail. "Now they'll follow any car that drives down the road."

Wahlberg went on by stating that Beckham, who joined football club Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007, is wasting his time if he wants to popularize the sport in the U.S. The 38-year-old actor said, "I'm just not sure why he came to America in the first place. Man, we don't want your soccer. »

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Six

27 December 2009 10:09 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Last Airbender

Opens: July 2nd 2010

Cast: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel

Director: M. Night Shyamalan

Summary: A live-action film based on the Nickelodeon animated TV series. In a fantastic world where civilisation exists as four great empires, a reluctant young child sets out on a perilous journey to restore balance to a world torn apart by war.

Analysis: It has been quite the decade for M. Night Shyamalan, who started it as a household name with the label of a modern-day Hitchcock thanks to the likes of "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs". Today he's considered more of a one-trick pony and in some cases a punchline due to rampant stories of egomania run wild and a series of much derided onscreen flops like "Lady in the Water" and "The Happening".

Thus 'Airbender' marks a potential return to form for the helmer. An adaptation of the hit »

Hippie Hippie Shake

Opens: 2010

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sienna Miller, Max Minghella, Emma Booth, Lee Ingleby

Director: Beeban Kidron

Summary: Follows the love story of Oz editor Richard Neville and Louise Ferrier. Neville and his cohorts launch the London edition of Oz amidst the 1960s counterculture and are subsequently put on trial for distributing a sexually explicit issue.

Analysis: One of the most troubled productions in Working Title's history, 'Hippie' began development back in 1998 but failed to get beyond script stage both in 1999 and in 2002 when "Elizabeth" helmer Shekhar Kapur was attached to direct. Filming finally got underway late 2007 with director Beeban Kidron in charge and shooting seemed to proceed without issue aside from feminist author Germaine Greer being vehemently unhappy about being depicted on film.

Actually the film scored quite a bit of free press for a skinny dipping scene where full-frontal shots of actress Sienna Miller shooting the sequence »

Scorecards 2009: Sony

21 December 2009 2:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

  A Sony restructuring in April makes it difficult to compare the performance of some of the congomerate's various entertainment parts year-over-year because video games and other products no longer are broken out in financial reports.

Profit and revenue in the film division sunk dramatically through the first three calendar quarters, but the numbers will improve in the fourth quarter as "2012" and "This Is It" are accounted for. In fact, Sony Pictures already set a record a month ago, with 2009's worldwide boxoffice surpassing the $3.33 billon it grossed in 2006.

In 2010, look for "Grown Ups," with Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Chris Rock, to score major coin, as should "Salt," starring Angelina Jolie. And Sony is banking on Will Ferrell to recover from his "Land of the Lost" fiasco when he stars alongside Mark Wahlberg in the comedy-action cop film "The Other Guys."

WIll Ferrell's self confidence sky high after playing a policeman in "The Other Guys" (IrishCentral)

18 December 2009 6:02 AM, PST | IrishCentral | See recent IrishCentral news »

Will Ferrell claims playing a policeman has boosted his confidence. The actor plays New York detective Allen Gamble in 'The Other Guys' and admits his law-enforcement costume made him feel powerful. He joked: "It's a great feeling of self-esteem to walk around these streets with a badge and a gun. I've been asked to leave the props at home, because I apprehended a couple of suspects last weekend, and it's truly none of my business. I've really become a vigilante for law and justice. "I'm like Batman. But without any of the skills, whatsoever." 'Boogie Nights' star Mark Wahlberg also plays a cop in the movie and says the casting was perfect as he only ever takes on a limited type of role. He told MTV: "That's all I can play: cops or crooks. In this film I just break s**t. That's all I do. I get mad at him, »

Dinner for Schmucks

Opens: July 23rd 2010

Cast: Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, Bruce Greenwood, David Walliams

Director: Jay Roach

Summary: A renowned publisher encourages his friends to invite the most pathetic guests possible for their weekly dinner party. Just as they find the most pathetic man yet, the host is injured and ends up trapped with the man all night long.

Analysis: A remake of director Francis Veber's 1998 César award-winning "Le Diner des cons", 'Schmucks' is one of the highest profile comedies of next year with one of the strongest casts for the genre in recent memory. It also marks the return of "Austin Powers" and "Meet the Parents" helmer Jay Roach who has produced several films in recent years but hasn't directed since 2004's "Meet the Fockers".

Behind The Scenes: Will Ferrell And Mark Wahlberg Are The Other Guys

16 December 2009 7:40 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Adam McKay's latest Will Ferrell vehicle, The Other Guys, claims to be a movie about those two hesitant guys in the background of every buddy cop movie, the guys who want to be the Mel Gibsons and Danny Glovers, the Martin Lawrence and Will Smith wannabes. I was under the impression that that movie had already been made, the painfully spoofy film version of Starsky and Hutch. But the thing about McKay's movies is that the plot is rarely important, since it's just a means of allowing Will Ferrell to say hilariously random shit. MTV.com has a look behind the scenes of The Other Guys, and the only thing the footage seems to accomplish is making Samuel L. Jackson look oddly tiny in comparison to Dwayne Johnson (the two play the badass cops). As with most featurettes, we don't really get much of an idea idea of how »

The Stars Of 'The Other Guys' Take MTV Behind The Scenes For An Exclusive First Look

16 December 2009 3:00 PM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

You know those buddy cop movies, the ones where the two leads are in fact full-on superstars. They're in on every major bust, they weather collateral damage and Internal Affairs investigations without a care in the world and the walls of their spacious offices are covered with awards, commendations, medals and the like. In "The Other Guys," those two cops are played by Dwayne Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson.

They're not the stars of the movie. The other guys are, a pair of bumbling cops played by Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. All four were kind enough to take us behind the scenes for an exclusive first look at Adam McKay's 2010 summer comedy. And here it is now, fresh from "Behind the Screen"!

Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg Explore Each Other's Turf In 'The Other Guys'

16 December 2009 3:29 AM, PST | MTV Movie News | See recent MTV Movie News news »

'It's a great feeling of self-esteem to walk around these streets with a badge and a gun,' Ferrell says of playing his first cop.

When your life is in danger, you hope cops like Riggs and Murtaugh from the "Lethal Weapon" movies will be on your side. If the bad guys are making their move, you want John McClane, Serpico or Axel Foley to come to the rescue. They're the best of the best, the top cops.

But when MTV News visited the set of an upcoming movie starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, we learned that their film isn't about those types of policemen. Instead, the 2010 comedy, featured on MTV's "Behind the Screen" on Wednesday (December 16), is about "The Other Guys."

Case 39

Opens: January 1st 2010

Cast: Renée Zellweger, Jodelle Ferland, Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper, Kerry O'Malley

Director: Christian Alvart

Summary: A family services social worker thinks she has seen it all until she meets her newest, most mysterious case - a troubled 10-year old girl whose parents try to kill her. The social worker decides to take her in herself until the right foster family comes along.

Analysis: Despite the presence of promising German director Christian Alvart ("Pandorum"), 'Case' has sat on a shelf since late 2006 and is finally being quietly shuffled out this year for one very good reason - it stinks. Having opened in Australia a few months back, reviewers utterly savaged the film as both incredibly dumb and utterly ludicrous. Lead star Renee Zellweger also scored personal criticism to a level rarely seen in film reviews outside of comments about Nicole Kidman's 'more alien than the »
