The Coen Brothers Add To Their Hail, Caesar! Cast

18 October 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Coen Bros. – Joel and Ethan – are among that rarified group of filmmakers whose every project is eagerly anticipated with the assumption of excellence. This writing and directing team have been producing the highest quality cinema for over thirty years, and have almost never put a foot wrong. Inevitably, their work attracts the most interesting and talented casts and, though they often collaborate with particular performers regularly, they never shy away from adding new people to their routine roster. Their next film, Hail, Caesar! is no exception.

Set amid the Hollywood studio system of the 1950s, Hail, Caesar! follows Eddie Mannix – a ‘fixer’ whose own talents are tested when a star disappears during filming. George Clooney makes his fourth Coen Bros. appearance (after O Brother Where Art Thou, Intolerable Cruelty and Burn After Reading) in the lead role as Mannix, and will be supported by fellow Coen Bros favourites Josh Brolin »

A Year with Kate: Rooster Cogburn (1975)

15 October 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Episode 42 of 52: In which Katharine Hepburn and John Wayne star in The African Queen 2: This Time it's a Western!

Growing old in Hollywood sucks. To borrow a line from Goldie Hawn, “There are only three ages for women in Hollywood: babe, district attorney, and Driving Miss Daisy.” And while Hollywood’s ageism is well-documented and well-criticized, for some aging actors, an equally tricky problem can arise: the trouble with becoming a Legend in your own time. What happens when the legend eclipses the actor?

In 1975, Hepburn was arguably more popular than she’d ever been. This was due in no small part to her friend Garson Kanin’s unauthorized, best-selling 1972 “tell all” entitled Tracy And Hepburn: An Intimate Memoir. Though shocked by the invasion of her privacy, Kate used the public interest that the book generated to fuel her career, appearing on talk shows and even the 1974 Academy Awards (in pants, »

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Sands of Iwo Jima

15 October 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: Nov. 11, 2014

Price: DVD $24.95, Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Olive Films

John Agar (l.) and John Wayne star in Sands of Iwo Jima

John Wayne (True Grit, Red River) did a bunch of war movies, but he garnered a 1949 Best Actor Academy Award nomination for his iconic role as the battle-hardened leader of a squad of recruits in Allan Dwan’s classic war film Sands of Iwo Jima, which makes its Blu-ray debut from Olive Films.

Haunted by his personal demons, Marine Sgt. John Stryker (Wayne) is both hated and feared by his men, who see him as a cold-hearted sadist. But when their boots hit the beaches, they begin to understand the reason for Stryker’s rigid form of discipline, as he leads them into one of the most treacherous battles in the Pacific.

Co-starring John Agar, Forrrest Tucker, Richard Webb and Richard Jaeckel, Sands of Iwo Jima remains »

20 Western Movies You Must See Before You Die

15 October 2014 12:26 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

It’s often thought that there is no place left for the western genre within the realms of today’s cinema scene: for many, the genre has been worked every way that it can, and has been left only suitable for the likes of parody. To that, we say: “No freakin’ way.” After all, the western genre has gifted us with some of the best and most famous movies of all-time – and going by recent motion pictures like True Grit and Django Unchained, there’s still life left in the old girl. Which is to say, the western genre is to be appreciated, no deplored, for its contributions to cinema.

After all, a western is rarely just “a western” – filmmakers have been using the genre as a means of exploring social issues of all kinds ever since the first one came along, merely using the time frame as a backdrop. »

Men, Women & Children movie review (London Film Festival)

10 October 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Jason Reitman is way too young to have produced a work of such fuddy-duddy handwringing over These Kids (And Adults) Today and how we play with our e-toys. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

As the little explorer probe Voyager passes into interstellar space to begin its long lonely journey to who knows where, Adam Sandler is masturbating to Internet porn.

There’s a point to this juxtaposition, but only director Jason Reitman knows what it is. (Presumably Chad Kultgen, author of the novel this is based on, knows, too, but there’s no evidence of that here.) Is it that the hyperadvanced and superwise aliens who may one day find Voyager will be disappointed if they could know (which they won’t be able to know) that »

Three Game-Changing Female Producers Make Sure Passion-Driven Films Hit the Screen

7 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Perhaps the least interesting thing about Megan Ellison, Gigi Pritzker and Molly Smith is that these game-changing film financiers happen to be the scions of three of America’s wealthiest families — a status that’s more Trivial Pursuit factoid than it is relevant to their dramatic impact on the current indie movie scene. Indeed, there is a long history of private-sector capitalists who gambled on the film business, from Howard Hughes in the 1940s to the more recent likes of industrialist Steven Rales and fashion magnate Sidney Kimmel — flirtations of varying lengths and intensity, but ultimately, in almost every case, a passing fancy.

What sets Ellison, Pritzker and Smith apart is that the movie business is their business, as well as their all-consuming passion. Financiers they may be, but they’re also creative, hands-on producers with dirt under their fingernails, many notches in their belts, and a keen understanding of »

Matt Damon vs. Ben Affleck: Who wins, then and now?

3 October 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ever since they wrote Good Will Hunting 18 years ago, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have been one of Hollywood's most well-known bromances. But no bromance is complete without some healthy competition, which is why we've gone back through the years since their first Oscar win and looked at their careers. With Samantha Highfill representing Matt Damon in one corner, and Joshua Rivera representing Ben Affleck in the other, here's how the fight breaks down: 1997 Damon: Good Will Hunting Sure, both Damon and Affleck won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but only one of them was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor, »

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight set to film in Colorado

29 September 2014 3:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Quentin Tarantino’s on and off western, The Hateful Eight has recently announced it may be filming in the state of Colorado.

Reports suggest that Telluride, Colorado beat out other locations such as Utah and Wyoming after their Economic Development Commision approved a $5 million incentive which will be offered to the film company. The movie is rumoured to be filming on a 900 acre ranch about ten miles west of the town, depending on permit approvals. This has the potential to be the area’s biggest film production since True Grit was filmed there in the late 1960s.

Tarentino’s latest foray into the world of Westerns is set for release in 2015 and if his previous films are anything to go by it’s going to be worth a watch.

Colorado has approved a $5 million incentive package to lure production of the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film The Hateful Eight. The state Economic Development Commission approved the package Friday. The Denver Post reports that Colorado's incentives beat out those of Utah and Wyoming.

Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight Will Shoot In Colorado

28 September 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight To Shoot In Colorado In December

26 September 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s funny to think that just a few months ago, the idea of Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight seeing the light of day was nothing more than a pipe dream. After the film’s script leaked earlier this year, Tarantino stopped production on the film, but quickly calmed down and set the wheels in motion once more. Now, it appears that things are moving ahead even faster than expected, as we’ve just learned that cameras will begin shooting a month earlier than previously reported.

The Denver Post is reporting that The Hateful Eight will film exclusively in Colorado thanks to a $5 million incentive package. This makes Tarantino’s new western the highest-profile pic to shoot in the region since 1969′s True Grit. Now that a location is in place, Tarantino will reportedly begin prep work and start shooting on December 8th at the Schmid Ranch in southwestern Colorado outside of Telluride. »

Tarantino In Colorado For ‘The Hateful Eight’

26 September 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The state of Colorado is rubbing its hands at the somewhat bloody prospect of Quentin Tarantino coming to town. The director will park his wagon and convert a ranch to shoot his much-anticipated nineteenth century slugfest The Hateful Eight, commencing December 8th. Late 2014 was mooted as the start date, now this has been confirmed by The Denver Post. A frozen Wyoming is the scenario, that sees a stagecoach journey permanently halted by a remorseless blizzard. The carriage’s mismatched occupants – including a female convict and a pair of bounty hunters locked in a game of one-upmanship – must then presumably get locked in a fight for survival. As regular Tarantino viewers will know preservation of the species is not high on his list of priorities.  Audiences got a taste of the action during a live reading earlier this year.

Wyoming itself must be fuming that Colorado got the jump on it, »

Tarantino Will Shoot 'Hateful Eight' in Colorado This December

26 September 2014 1:56 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There have been multiple reports about when director Quentin Tarantino will start shooting his revenge Western The Hateful Eight, including a May report that revealed shooting will begin this November in Wyoming, and a story from earlier this month that indicated production will start in January. Today, The Denver Post reports that principal photography will begin on December 8 in southwestern Colorado.

The state of Colorado has put together a $5 million incentive for Quentin Tarantino to bring his project to the state, beating out neighboring states Utah and Wyoming. Colorado's Economic Development Commission approved the incentive package earlier this morning, with state film commissioner David Zuckerman confirming that The Hateful Eight will be shot entirely in Colorado. Here's what he had to say in a statement.

"The whole movie's going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They're going to build it on a ranch."

Tarantino's Next To Film In Colorado

26 September 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Quentin Tarantino is set to bring his soon to film western "The Hateful Eight" to Colorado.

Colorado film commissioner Donald Zuckerman tells The Denver Post: "The whole movie's going to be shot here, exteriors and interiors. They're going to build it on a ranch."

Set in a blizzard-engulfed Wyoming after the Civil War, the story follows a group of dangerous people trapped in a saloon after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route.

The project sports a $44 million budget and was granted a $5 million incentive package by the state. It's also the biggest production to film in Colorado since the original "True Grit" in 1969.

Pre-production is already underway ahead of filming beginning on December 8th. The project will take a break over the holiday, then resume production in 2015. »
