Captain America: The Winter Soldier review: politics in our peanut butter

24 March 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Stuns me with its scathing commentary on what is happening in the real world today, wrapped up in what is some of the most delicious, most comic-booky fantasy ever. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first movie, love Chris Evans, love the Avengers series

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I saw an ad on British TV last Friday night — it came, perhaps unsurprisingly, during a break in the broadcast of the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — in which Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury helped British ISP Sky Broadband cheer on its new automatic censoring filters… the ones that new customers have to opt-out of if they don’t want them, and that have been found to block legitimate sites, including those offering rape counseling, sex education, and legal file sharing. (You can watch that ad here.) Is S.H.I.E.L.D. pro-censorship now? »

California Production Tax Credit Generated $4.3 Billion in Activity

20 March 2014 12:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Backers of expanding California’s Film and Television Tax Credit Program have received a strong endorsement from a new study by the Southern California Association of Governments.

The study, released Thursday, asserts that the current program — funded at $100 million annually — created an 11% return on investment in its first three years in 109 projects; helped generate $4.3 billion in economic activity; supported 22,300 jobs; and generated $247.7 million in state and local tax revenues.

High-profile projects covered under the program included “Bridesmaids,” “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “The Social Network” and “We Bought a Zoo.” Television series brought the highest return on investment at 19%, while independent feature films generated a 15% return.

The Scag study also found that for every $1 of tax credit certificate issued, total economic activity in the state increased by $19.12; total state gross domestic product increased by $9.48; and $1.11 was returned to state and local governments in the form of tax revenues.

The Sun Comes Out, Reveals First Trailer for Annie Remake

6 March 2014 10:03 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

After becoming the third youngest actress to receive an Oscar Nomination for her debut in Beasts of the Southern Wild, Quvenzhané Wallis followed that role with a part in this year's Academy Award–winning 12 Years a Slave. Now, the young actress is ready to tackle a classic role in the upcoming remake of Annie.

The movie's first trailer reveals that it's still a hard knock life for Wallis' Annie, who escapes from the orphanage of Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) to live with the rich Daddy Warbucks — this time re-imagined as a politician named Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx). However, unlike the previous 1982 adaptation, this Annie is armed with modern updates on the 1977 musical's classic songs as well as new tracks written by Jay-z, who also served as one of the movie's producers.

Directed by Will Gluck (Easy A), Annie was written by Emma Thompson and Aline Brosh McKenna (We Bought a Zoo). Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids, »

The 'Annie' Trailer Will Have You Tapping Your Toes (Video)

6 March 2014 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The big-budget remake of beloved musical "Annie" is nothing if not ambitious.

Developed by Jay-z, who memorably sampled "Annie" for his huge hit "Hard Knock Life," and Will Smith, who originally designed the project as a vehicle for his daughter, Willow, this new version of "Annie" will feature a largely African American cast and be set in present day New York Quvenzhane Wallis, fresh from her Oscar nomination for "Beasts of the Southern Wild," is the new Annie and Jamie Foxx plays a character based on the Daddy Warbucks part from the original. And based on the just-released first teaser for the Christmas release, it's going to sleekly modernize the material while keeping all of those classic "Annie" elements that make it such a beloved musical.

We get to see a little bit of everything in the teaser -- the scope and complexity of the musical numbers, which have an agreeable crayon-colored look, »

Watch: Quvenzhané Wallis Has a Hard Knock Life in 'Annie' Trailer

5 March 2014 4:03 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After a breakthrough performance in the Best Picture nominated Beasts of the Southern Wild, young actress Quvenzhané Wallis is getting musical in this contemporary adaptation of the classic musical Annie. With a story that puts the adorable orphan in the care of Will Stacks, just in time to help his New York mayoral campaign, everything about this updated, urban on the material feels too phony, and so do Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. Wallis is cute as Annie, and she's certainly grown up a bit since her indie debut, but this film doesn't look like anything special, and the singing sounds way too artificially poppy. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Will Gluck's remake of Annie, originally from Yahoo: Annie is directed by Will Gluck (Easy A) who also wrote the screenplay with Alice Brosh McKenna (We Bought a Zoo, The Devil Wears Prada) and Emma Thompson.

David Fincher to direct Aaron Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic

27 February 2014 3:27 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few years ago, The Social Network scribe Aaron Sorkin signed onto write a biopic of tech wizard Steve Jobs. Unlike the preposterous Ashton Kutcher vehicle, it will be split into three, 30 minute scenes. Until now, it was a mystery as to who would direct, however, David Fincher looks set to reunite with Sorkin by helming the project.

During an interview with The Daily Beast last year, Sorkin revealed that, “the entire movie is going to be three scenes, and three scenes only, that all take place in real time... There will be no time cuts. Each of these three scenes is going to take place before a product launch—backstage before a product launch. The first one being the Mac, the second one being NeXT (after he had left Apple), and the third one being the iPod.”

Fincher is currently finishing up Gone Girl, which hits cinemas on October »

Cameron Crowe’s Untitled Film Starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone Set for Christmas Day 2014 Release

14 February 2014 11:59 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Writer/director Cameron Crowe’s untitled next film will serve as a nifty Christmas Present this year.  Sony Pictures has slated the untitled picture for release on December 25, 2014, where it will square off against Disney’s musical Into the Woods, the comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and director Angelina Jolie’s war drama Unbroken.  Crowe’s picture is described as a romantic comedy and stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor overseeing a weapons satellite launch from Hawaii who teams up with (and falls for) an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) to scuttle the launch.  The very solid ensemble cast is filled out by Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, Rachel McAdams, and Danny McBride. Crowe’s last directorial effort, 2011’s We Bought a Zoo, also opened on Christmas Day, and I’m eager to see what the filmmaker has cooked up this time around. »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #165. Cameron Crowe’s Deep Tiki

6 February 2014 7:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Deep Tiki

Director: Cameron Crowe

Writer: Cameron Crowe

Producers: Scott Rudin and Crowe

U.S. Distributor: Columbia Pictures

Cast: Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone, Alec Baldwin, Danny McBride

Excluding his docu-items, Cameron Crowe’s 8th feature — the currently untitled/formerly titled Deep Tiki has the sort of a-lister acting dream team that David O. Russell has become accustomed to. Managing to land cinematographer Eric Gauthier (Into the Wild), we’re curious if this will fall somewhere along the lines of We Bought a Zoo or (we’re doing some free association with The Descendants) might be the second Hawaii-based narrative in line for critical salutations.

Gist: A celebrated military contractor returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs and re-connects with a long-ago love while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog assigned to him.

Release Date: This adventure comedy might be Columbia Pictures’ dark horse Oscar »

Max Landis’ Houdini Film May Be the First Biopic to Include Ravenous, Tentacled Nightmare Beasts

16 January 2014 6:30 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Biopics are a little like the savings bonds of the movie world. They’re dependable and usually low-risk; for every Diana or Amelia or Jobs, you’re sure to find dozens of true-life stories making reasonable returns on their investment. The biopic is both a sturdy workhorse and an easy road to prestige, attracting the highest and mightiest of the film world while still maintaining the “people have heard of this before, probably” branding appeal of an action figure action movie. So naturally, biopics are everywhere, choking our rivers and breeding like rats. And while they might vary a little bit from genre to genre — The Wolf of Wall Street, 12 Years a Slave and Saving Mr. Banks would certainly appear on different shelves in some mythical, non-demolished Blockbuster Video- they’re all burdened down by one gigantic common factor: The Truth. How is it that biopics still haven’t started playing fast and loose with the real-life »

Gillian Flynn reveals Gone Girl ending rewritten for David Fincher's adaptation

10 January 2014 10:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past week, information and pictures from David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel Gone Girl have appeared across the Internet and now the author has revealed the upcoming film has a totally different final act compared to the book. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she revealed:

“There was something thrilling about taking this piece of work that I’d spent about two years painstakingly putting together with all its eight million Lego pieces and take a hammer to it and bash it apart and reassemble it into a movie… Ben [Affleck] was so shocked by it. He would say, ‘This is a whole new third act! She literally threw that third act out and started from scratch.’”

Gone Girl stars Ben Affleck as Nick, who upon the disappearance of his wife on their fifth anniversary, is immediately the first suspect. He is joined in the cast »

New look at David Fincher's Gone Girl

9 January 2014 1:39 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this week we got our first official look at David Fincher’s (The Social Network) adaptation of the best selling novel Gone Girl. Today, we have Ben Affleck (Argo) snuggling up to Rosamund Pike’s (The World's End) corpse on the front cover of Entertainment Weekly. The shot is incredibly dark and one can imagine that this image reflects the twisted and chilling tone of the story...

Gone Gone sees Affleck as Nick Dunne, who is the main suspect when his wife (Pike) goes missing on their fifth anniversary. Also starring is Emily Ratajkowski (iCarly), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Tyler Perry (Madea Gets A Job), Missi Pyle (The Artist), Patrick Fugit (We Bought a Zoo) and Scoot McNairy (12 Years a Slave). The film is set for release on October 3rd. »

Her review: Manic Pixel Dream Girl

6 January 2014 1:01 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s the rise of the machines as romantic dramedy, and the Singularity as romantic tragedy. It’s the nicest, gentlest sci-fi horror film ever. I’m “biast” (pro): love Spike Jonze’s movies

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s a familiar story of self-discovery and romance. Theodore is a lonely writer who can’t come to terms with his divorce — he keeps putting off signing the papers — and he’s just not interested in dating again. And then he meets Samantha. Their relationship is strictly platonic at first, but she’s smart, funny, considerate, attuned to his needs… and he falls for her, hard. She has no physical presence, of course, just a sexy Scarlett Johansson voice emanating from the smartphone-slash-supercomputer he carries around (as everyone else does in Theodore’s near-future Los Angeles). Sure, she’s an AI, »
