The Good Wife Recap: Deaf Justice

28 minutes ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Look, I know my job doesn’t involve digging ditches under a burning summer sun or tightrope-walking between Chicago skyscrapers like Nik Wallenda. But that doesn’t mean recapping The Good Wife‘s current sixth season hasn’t been a seriously harrowing experience.

I mean, I didn’t think I was embarking on the long, lost Season 7 of HBO’s Oz, and yet now it looks like sweet, pale Cary Agos is just a few days — or maybe minutes — away from fighting for his life in the mean prison yards of the Illinois penal system. I never even watched the pilot of Boardwalk Empire, »

'Interstellar' Ending Explained: Time Travel and the Real Science

21 November 2014 10:16 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Whether you love him or hate him, filmmaker Christopher Nolan has continued to find new ways to challenge his audience, and paradigms of filmmaking as a whole, throughout his remarkable career. His breakout hit Memento shattered audiences' expectations of a traditional narrative story, while The Dark Knight trilogy redefined the superhero genre in ways nobody even knew they wanted, until they saw it with their very eyes. Inception proved that one does not need to induce hallucinogenic drugs to get the head trip of a lifetime, and even his more straight-forward films like Insomnia and The Prestige are exceptionally bold. Regardless of what you might think of his latest offering Interstellar, most will likely agree that Christopher Nolan has outdone himself, offering truly outstanding visuals coupled with a mind-shattering narrative that still has filmgoers talking weeks after opening day.

With all that being said, Interstellar, all 169 minutes of it, isn't »

Brad Pitt will Produce Daniel H. Wilson's 'Alpha'

21 November 2014 6:03 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Brad Pitt will produce the sci-fi film Alpha for his Plan B production company.

The film will be written by Robopocalypse author Daniel H. Wilson. Not much is known about the plot other than its being described as a sci-fi survival tale in the vein of Jack London, who wrote the classic survival stories Call of the Wild and White Fang.

Canadian director Anthony Scott Burns has been chosen to helm Alpha. It will be his feature debut as a director.

Brad Pitt nabs rights to new sci-fi thriller, Alpha

20 November 2014 10:34 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alpha, from Robopocalypse author Daniel H Wilson, has been picked up by Brad Pitt's company, Plan B.

Whilst Daniel H Wilson's Robopocalypse sits in development, awaiting the re-interest of Steven Spielberg, another of the author's books has nudged closer to the screen. This time it's Alpha, described as a sci-fi survivalist thriller, and Wilson - who we interviewed here - is attached to pen the screenplay of this one.

The film is set to be directed by Anthony Scott Burns, which will mark his feature directing debut, and the rights to it have been picked up by Brad Pitt and his Plan B production company. Pitt will therefore produce, but it's unclear whether we'll see him before the camera as well.

Lionsgate is set to distribute Alpha, and we'd imagine it'll be heading towards production shortly.

Brad Pitt Has Secretive Sci-Fi Plans

20 November 2014 6:48 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Beyond his part in Terry Gilliam's Twelve Monkeys, Brad Pitt has never really explored much of the science-fiction. It's a bit strange when you consider how many other genre films he's made over the course of his career as an actor and a producer - but the good news is that it's an area in which the famed actor is working to expand. Word has come from The Hollywood Reporter saying that Brad Pitt and his Plan B production banner are working alongside author Daniel H. Wilson to develop a new sci-fi project titled Alpha, which has already been picked up for distribution by Lionsgate. While the intricate details of the project's plot are currently being kept under wraps, the trade report descibes the project as being a survival story with touches of legendary author Jack London in the story. Directing duties on the film have fallen to first »

Robopocalypse Writer Sells Sci-fi Survival Story, Brad Pitt to Executive Produce

20 November 2014 4:30 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The big screen adaption of Daniel H. Wilson's "Robopocalypse" (by none other than Steven Speilberg) may well be on hold but that doesn't mean that Wilson is done in Hollywood. Far from it.

News today is that Wilson has sold an original idea to Brad Pitt's Plan B. Not a lot of information is available on Alpha but THR reports "it is known to be sci-fi survival story that has shades of Jack London."

So basically, a sci-fi survival story. Not exactly new ground for Wilson.

In addition to the announcement of the project, which Wilson will also write, it was confirmed that Canadian director Anthony Scott Burns will make his feature film debut with the project. Burns is a commercial director w [Continued ...] »

Brad Pitt To Produce Robopocalypse Author’s Sci-Fi Thriller Alpha

20 November 2014 1:49 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Novelist Daniel H. Wilson nearly saw his words on the big screen two years back, when Steven Spielberg optioned the rights to his novel Robopocalypse. While it might be taking a while to develop, it is still apparently on the director’s to-do list, but that doesn’t mean his robo-infused mind has stalled. Now, it seems Brad Pitt’s production banner, Plan B, are set to collaborate with the author on his original idea, Alpha.

Wilson will be penning the script and Canadian newcomer Anthony Scott Burns has been tagged to direct. As part of his pitch to land the gig, Burns crafted a fake commercial based around one of the companies in the story. A pretty neat idea, one which likely stemmed from his outside-the-box approach to filmmaking. Prior to landing the gig, Burns was known online for having designed a badass fan trailer for Tron, as well »

20 November 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Brad Pitt to Produce Sci-Fi Thriller Alpha from Robopocalypse Author

20 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though author Daniel H. Wilson’s novel Robopocalypse came super close to being a Steven Spielberg movie (which he may or may not still make), another idea of his is now poised to come to the big screen via Brad Pitt.  THR reports that Lionsgate has picked up the sci-fi thriller Alpha, based on an original idea by Wilson, with Pitt set to produce alongside his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.  Plot details are under wraps, but the film is a sci-fi survival story “that has shades” of White Fang author Jack London.  Wilson will write the screenplay based on his own idea, and newcomer Anthony Scott Burns is set to make his feature directorial debut with the project.  Burns’ pitch for the film apparently involved a fake commercial for a fictional company that is central to the story.  More after the jump.

20 November 2014 12:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Brad Pitt has signed on to produce the sci-fi thriller Alpha through his Plan B Productions, with Canadian filmmaker Anthony Scott Burns set to make his feature directorial debut. It isn't known if Brad Pitt plans on starring in Alpha at this time, but he will produce with his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

Robopocalypse author Daniel H. Wilson came up with the original story and will write the screenplay himself. While no specific story details were given, the plot is said to be a sci-fi survival tale that is compared to the works of Jack London (Call of the Wild, White Fang).

Part of the pitch was a commercial for a fake company that is central to the story, which Anthony Scott Burns shot himself. While Alpha will mark the Toronto-based filmmaker's directorial debut, he garnered attention for directing a fan-made trailer entitled Tron Destiny, and a short film entitled Manifold, »

How Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar affirms Hollywood’s faith in God

18 November 2014 8:10 PM, PST | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

“Even the issue of saving people is repeatedly equated by Cooper and the others to saving their own families and children”

If technology has had one effect on cinema it is to make the logic of technological fiction completely inaccessible to the spectator. This is not confined to the Si-Fi film alone but appears true of virtually any kind of cinema where computer technology plays a role. As instances, I have not – despite repeated viewings – still figured out how Daniel Ocean and his comrades manage to rob the casino in Ocean’s Eleven (2001) or how the group in The Italian Job (2003) manipulates traffic signals at will to outwit the villain. If common thieves – with no more access to special technology than has the average computer geek – could do such things, would the system be safe at all? The reason directors get away with such apparent fallacies is that they take »

The A to Z of Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberbatch is everywhere. He's got no fewer than three films coming out between now and the end of the year, with Oscar-tipped biopic The Imitation Game in cinemas now, and The Penguins of Madagascar and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies imminent.

After months of speculation surrounding the casting of Marvel's next superhero Doctor Strange, fresh reports have emerged linking Cumberbatch to the coveted role, although nothing has yet been confirmed. There's also the small matter of his recent engagement, which was announced in a characteristically classy manner earlier this month.

It would be easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of Cumberexposure. But fear not – Digital Spy's handy A-z guide is here to fill in the gaps in your knowledge.

Interstellar Is About the Death of Film

14 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This post contains massive spoilers about Interstellar. Read no further if you have not seen the film.In the 2012 documentary Side by Side, which examines the shift from celluloid to digital filmmaking, Christopher Nolan, of all the directors interviewed, is the staunchest in his pro-celluloid stance. “A transition starts with people offering a new choice,” he says, “but it finishes with taking the old choice away.” That sentiment resounds in Nolan’s Interstellar, which is also concerned with a transition, from a dying Earth to a new planet. Michael Caine’s Professor Brand has two plans for saving humanity. In Plan A, Brand will solve an equation that will allow him to transport Earth’s population through a wormhole. In Plan B, everyone on Earth will die but the species will survive embryonically and start a colony on a new world. In an echo of what Nolan says about film technology, »

Exclusive: Scott Snyder talks the horrors of Wytches

12 November 2014 12:11 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The last time you were scared of a witch was probably when you first saw Margaret Hamilton cackle her way through The Wizard Of Oz, or when Roald Dahl’s The Witches pulled off their wigs and gloves and exposed their claws (mommy!). Well, look no further, my friend: the first issue of Scott Snyder and Jock’s Wytches is pretty damn terrifying; and the second, hitting shops this week, brings in new characters, fills in backstory, and really raises the stakes while creating a collective of characters that is very difficult not to sympathize with. This is emotional horror at its finest, which is sometimes difficult to find at your local multiplex. Writer extraordinaire Scott Snyder was gracious enough to speak with FM about his personal fears, favorite recent horror flicks, and the fine art of being gross. Warning: this interview contains minor spoilers.

Famous Monsters. It seems to me, »
