The Duke Yucks It Up In "McClintock!"

2 July 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

The Duke. There was only one man like him. The craggy face and squinted baby-blue eyes, with that drawling, patient voice that commanded authority with every “Pilgrim.” Those who knew him on set said that he was a true “presence,” and not that many stars were or are. He was a cinematic titan; still holding the record for the most leads roles (142) and a timeless icon of a certain man in a certain era. With a career of mostly dramas, Wayne discovered a funny bone with 1960’s North to Alaska, directed by Henry Hathaway, who would later get the actor his first and only Oscar for the one-eyed Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. With two ensemble epics just under his belt, The Longest Day and How The West Was Won, Wayne moved handedly back into the spotlight with McLintock!, a western slapstick riff with good values and men being men. »

Watch This: 'Shadows In The Valley' - A Tribute to Dp Roger Deakins

2 July 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

One of the real masters of modern cinematography is Roger Deakins, a British cinematographer who has been nominated a whopping 11 times for the Best Cinematography Oscar, yet hasn't won one yet. Every year he always seems to end up a talking point during the awards season, because every year he continues to turn out amazing work. Plot Point Productions has decide to pay tribute to Roger Deakins in a video they've just released called "Deakins: Shadows In The Valley", a five-minute montage of some of his best shots and visual techniques. From Skyfall to The Assassination of Jesse James to Fargo to Prisoners to True Grit, his work is always astounding to see, and this video beautifully highlights some of his finest work so far. Enjoy. That wonderful music is from The Assassination of Jesse James, the track "Song for Bob" by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. For more, see Plot Point's Vimeo page. »

'Begin Again' (2014) Movie Review

27 June 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It has been seven years since writer/director John Carney's breakout hit Once, which made stars out of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova and ended up winning an Oscar for Best Original Song. The film was fantastic, not only for its music, but the delicate nature of its authentic and welcoming storytelling. There have been a couple of projects between then and now for Carney, but his latest feature, Begin Again is, for all intents and purposes, his true follow-up effort to the 2006 success. Disappointingly, everything that made Once so great is absent from this film, which is nothing more than a soap opera-level melodrama. Set in New York, the story follows Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a washed-up record producer, and his eventual professional relationship with Gretta (Keira Knightley), a singer-songwriter that has just broken things off with her boyfriend (Adam Levine) after he finds success in the music biz »

Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton to Play Varying Degrees of Crazy in Coens’ ‘Hail Caesar’

24 June 2014 4:27 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

2011 and 2012 were tough years. Before then, things were plentiful, as every year a new Coen Brothers film would release right on schedule. No Country for Old Men, Burn After Reading, A Serious Man and True Grit. Truly, it was a great time to be alive. But the next two years after True Grit were a desert. No Coen films. No Coen anything. Not a single trace of dryly broad (or broadly dry?) comic sensibilities, nor the gentle pop of John Goodman’s vocal chords exploding after one screamed line too many. Those were dark times. And when Inside Llewyn Davis swooped in to remind us that Joel and Ethan Coen were both still alive and still capable of putting story to celluloid, things got a little lighter. But still the question remained: when would the Coens return to hibernation? We should be in the clear for now. Their latest film has progressed enough to call it quits »

Comparing Cinema’s Surprisingly Numerous Rooster Cogburns

11 June 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Today marks the 45th anniversary of True Grit. But just because the original is the one regarded most fondly doesn’t mean there aren’t other True Grits out there. The franchise is actually bigger than you’d think — with a novel and four films, True Grit has as much franchise moxie as Jaws does (sadly, what True Grit lacks is a theme park ride where an animatronic John Wayne heaves himself against your boat, causing a Universal Studios tour guide to blast him with a grenade launcher). Yes, once you include the sequel Rooster Cogburn, the Coen Brothers‘ remake, and the forgotten-by-society TV movie True Grit: A Further Adventure, we’ve got four True Grit movies on our hands. And with so many, we’ve also got numerous Rooster Cogburns: John Wayne in the original ’69 True Grit and its ’75 follow-up Warren Oates in A Further Adventure Jeff Bridges in the only 21st Century True Grit.

Josh Brolin Reuniting with Coen Brothers in 'Hail Caesar' Comedy

10 June 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following news that Josh Brolin would provide the voice of Thanos when the Marvel villain makes an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy later this summer, the actor has another fantastic role lined up. Universal Pictures just announced their acquisition of Joel & Ethan Coen's next film Hail Caesar, the comedy that already has George Clooney on board. The press release also revealed that the film will see the Coen Brothers reuniting with their No Country for Old Men and True Grit star in the film, though Brolin's role remains undisclosed at this time. This will be the first time Brolin is taking on comedy with the duo. For those just joining us, the film follows a man named Eddie Mannix (Clooney), who works for the movie studios of Hollywood as a fixer, someone who protects the reputations of their biggest stars from being tarnished. This was not an uncommon practice in the 50s, »

George Clooney and Josh Brolin reuniting with Coens for 'Hail, Caesar!' at Universal

9 June 2014 10:43 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Since breaking onto the cinema scene with 1985's "Blood Simple," Joel and Ethan Coen have made movies with Miramax, Focus Features, Paramount Pictures, Warner Bros., 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Studios, the long-gone Gramercy Pictures, Universal Pictures and CBS Films. Recently, the duo have partnered with uber-producer Scott Rudin on three straight movies, but now they are taking a break from their "True Grit" collaborator and reuniting with longtime buddies Working Title for "Hail, Caesar!" And, in something of a surprise, news broke today that the film will be released by Universal Pictures instead of the company's mini-major and previous Coens home, Focus Features. Could the Clooney factor be the reason? According to Deadline, "Hail, Caesar!" is a comedy that centers on a Hollywood fixer, Eddie Mannix, whose job is to protect studio system stars from press, paparazzi and who knows what else. It's still unclear whether Clooney or Brolin are playing Mannix. »

George Clooney, Josh Brolin to star in Coen brothers' Hail Caesar

9 June 2014 6:25 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

George Clooney and Josh Brolin will star in Joel Coen and Ethan Coen's new film Hail, Caesar.

The Academy Award-winning filmmakers have inked a deal with Universal Pictures for the upcoming comedy, reports Deadline.

Hail, Caesar is an original script by the Coens about a Hollywood fixer named Eddie Mannix who protected the stars of the era.

Clooney has been a frequent collaborator with the Coen brothers, having starred in their films O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Intolerable Cruelty and Burn After Reading.

Brolin earned a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination as part of the cast of the siblings' 2007 movie No Country for Old Men, and also appeared in their remake of True Grit.

No release date has been set yet for Hail, Caesar.

Josh Brolin Joins Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!

9 June 2014 5:08 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a few years since Josh Brolin joined the Coens’ gang, putting in an excellent turn as one of the main characters in No Country For Old Men and True Grit. Now The Wrap reports that the actor has signed on to appear in their next film, Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Caesar! already features Coen go-to guy George Clooney, presumably playing the lead role as Eddie Mannix, a fixer who works for the Hollywood studios of the 1950s to protect stars from scandals. Given that the Coens have dealt with that time period several times, including in their intense and darkly funny comedy Barton Fink, we can hope for some pitch black humor and possible nastiness in this story. The film is being directed by the Coens from their own script, as per usual.

It is not yet clear what part Josh Brolin will be playing for Hail, Caesar! »

Josh Brolin Joins George Clooney In Coen Brothers' 'Hail Caesar'

9 June 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

By this point in the careers of the Coen brothers, they have an embarrassment of past talent to draw upon for the next films. And for their upcoming "Hail Caesar," they've tapped two leading men who have been part of some of their most successful films to date. Josh Brolin ("No Country For Old Men," "True Grit") has joined the previously reported George Clooney ("O Brother, Where Art Thou?," "Intolerable Cruelty," "Burn After Reading") in the siblings' next film, "Hail Caesar." Even more, Universal has swooped in to distribute the film, a long develping project that focuses on a fixer in the 1950s who works for Hollywood studios to protect their stars. It'll be the first time Brolin and Clooney have paired up for a feature film (though they both appeared in the 2012 doc "Radioman") and that it's for a Coens pic is really promising stuff. No word yet on when production will begin, »

DVD Review: Celebrate Father’s Day with The Duke

3 June 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

There is no studio that times their releases more perfectly than Warner Bros. Around the end-of-year holidays there will be gift sets for films like “Elf” and “Willy Wonka.” Near Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, you can expect gift-appropriate releases.

And, of course, they always bring out the war movies and Westerns for Father’s Day in June. This year’s gift idea is a beauty, a massive 40-film, career-spanning set of films starring the legendary John Wayne. From 1932’s “Big Stampede” to 1976’s “The Shootist,” there’s a bit of everything for Wayne fans in here, but more for those who like war movies and Westerns.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

We don’t need to go through them all but highlights include “Rio Bravo,” “El Dorado,” “The Searchers,” “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance,” “True Grit,” “How the West Was Won,” “Fort Apache,” “Donovan’s Reef,” and “Hatari!” Some Wayne »

​Box Office: In 'Maleficent' vs. 'Million Ways,' It's Girls 1, Guys 0

2 June 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Why have this summer's box office behemoths been dropping like flies after their first weekends?

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Neighbors," "Godzilla," and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" all opened at No. 1 and then plummeted, losing half or two-thirds of their business the following weekend. One possible reason: they all have too much testosterone.

Yes, summer tentpole movies (note the standard Freudian nickname) tend to be pretty macho, without much appeal to female audiences. This summer, however, girl-power movies may be coming out on top. That was certainly the case this weekend, with Angelina Jolie's "Maleficent" opening on top with an estimated $70.0 million (about $15 million more than most pundits predicted) while "A Million Ways to Die in the West," Seth MacFarlane's follow-up to "Ted," struggled to a third-place debut with an estimated $17.1 million, about $10 million below expectations.

Yes, "Maleficent" had a lot of advantages over "Million Ways," but many of those tie into gender. »

Anna Camp To Appear In ‘Pitch Perfect’ Sequel

2 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Anna Camp, who featured as snooty senior singer Aubrey Posen in Pitch Perfect, is set to briefly appear in the sequel.

Although her character was seen to pass the Barden Bellas baton to Anna Kendrick’s Beca and Brittany Snow’s Chloe, Camp will make a cameo appearance in Pitch Perfect 2. This may come as a surprise to fans, especially since a large proportion of the original cast have already signed on for the second film, including Kendrick, Snow and Rebel Wilson, leaving little room for extras. As for the Treblemakers, Skylar Astin and Ben Platt have also both secured returning roles for the film. What about new names? Well, in May it was announced that True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld had also signed her name on the dotted line, perhaps leading the way for a whole new group of Bellas.

Pitch Perfect 2, directed by Elizabeth Banks, has »
