The 50 Best Movies You've Never Seen - Part 2

16 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We're back with even more recommendations for cinephiles looking to broaden their horizons or try out some genres that they've never though of experiencing before. The list continues below, and be sure to check back tomorrow evening for part 3!! 11 - Kung Fu Hustle Synopsis: In Shanghai, China in the 1940s, a wannabe gangster aspires to join the notorious "Axe Gang" while residents of a housing complex exhibit extraordinary powers in defending their turf. Why you need to see it: Sheer insanity from start to finish, this packs some serious wallop, just hits the ground running and never stops. Blending high octane stunts with slapstick humour, Kung Fu Hustle may be flawed when it comes to the plot but the movie is never less than really entertaining. 12 - Jesus of Montreal Synopsis: Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 1989 Oscars, this unconventional Canadian film directed by Denys Arcand, focuses »

Watch: Opportunity Rocks In The First Trailer For 'Rock The Kasbah' Starring Bill Murray

11 June 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Loyalty’s gotta count for something. Mitch Glazer is a veteran screenwriter (“Scrooged”), producer, the creator/showrunner of Starz’s “Magic City” and a longtime friend of Bill Murray. While he’s worked in Hollywood for some thirty years, it wasn’t until 2010 and “Passion Play” with Mickey Rourke, Megan Fox and Murray that Glazer directed a film. Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival that year, “Passion Plays” was universally regarded as a disaster. Read More: Review: 'Passion Play' Is An Excruciating, Unbearable Disaster  But try try again, right? Glazer’s back at it and his buddy Murray is in tow, this time as the lead. But there’s another director at the helm for the film: Barry Levinson. This dramedy is a rock and roll narrative set in the Middle East, focusing on a man who’s seen better days. Here’s the official synopsis: “Rock The Kasbah »

Outlander Recap: Scottish History X

30 May 2015 7:05 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Season one’s penultimate episode got pretty Catholic, what with all the Passion Play, Jamie-as-our-Lord imagery. The finale takes us even further into the darkness and then, of course, the light. But the darkness … it is impressive, even by the standards of cable television. It puts the recent brouhaha over Sansa Stark and Ramsey Bolton’s wedding night to shame.First things first, though: We have to free our hero. How will Jamie’s wife and clansmen manage to rescue him from the Pit of Despair at the very bottom of Wentworth Prison, where he has been savaged — and ravaged — by his besotted arch nemesis Captain JonathanBlack Jack” Randall? As it turns out, all they need is one very large, hairy diversion. A herd of cattle storms the prison basement, knocking Randall flat when he goes to investigate the hellish sound of hoofs echoing through the stone halls. The »

Jesus Town, USA [Hot Docs 2015]

27 April 2015 9:11 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Zack Little has landed the dream role. For 88 years, a small town in the foothills of Wichita, Oklahoma has been home to a yearly Easter pageant, the longest running Passion play in American history set against the bizarre backdrop of a detailed replication of the Holy Land smack dab in America’s Heartland. Drawing a local cast of hundreds, and the technical support of hundreds more, the spectacle of Wichita’s yearly tribute to the death and rebirth of Jesus Christ is a production on par with many Hollywood blockbusters. Now, Little is the star of this multi-generational effort, playing the role of a lifetime as Jesus Christ, but Zack has a secret that may call his capacity to play the King of Kings into question amongst the highly religious participants of the production.

Although Jesus Town, USA may be a true story, it’s incredibly difficult not to see »

Australian Model Abbey Lee Revs Up Acting Career in New ‘Mad Max’

23 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Australian actress Abbey Lee won a model-search competition in 2004, and has become one of the world’s best-known fashion faces. Now, she’s broadened her horizons into acting for the upcoming “Mad Max: Fury Road,” directed by George Miller.

Holy Grail

Looking to fill a role in the latest sequel to his apocalyptic thriller, Miller reached out to modeling agencies after he couldn’t find an actor he liked. Lee made a tape in which she and her dad performed a Monty Python sketch. “I guess I had something George needed, because he flew me to Australia not long after,” she says.

Passion Play

Lee says her move into film wasn’t planned, but now she’s discovered what she’s been missing. She credits Miller for helping her to make the transition. “I found my passion, and learned where I was meant to be in life,” she says, adding »
