‘Voyage of Time’ Trailer: Terrence Malick’s Ambitious IMAX Documentary Looks Stunning

19 August 2016 5:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After what feels like an eternity, the “Voyage of Time: Life’s Journey” trailer is finally here. Empire posted the video for writer-director Terrence Malick’s decades-in-the-making documentary Friday, and the movie looks every bit as stunning as fans of Malick would expect. The film hits theaters on October 7.

“Voyage of Time” is a history of the cosmos that covers the whole of time, from the Big Bang to the birth of human life to the collapse of the universe (whenever that happens). Malick’s first documentary was rumored to be headed to Cannes this year before being notably absent from the lineup.

Distributor Broad Green is releasing it in two formats: A 40-minute IMAX version narrated by Brad Pitt, whose Plan B helped produce the movie, and a feature-length version narrated by Cate Blanchett. Described »

Emmy-Nominated Comedy Series Have No Boundaries on Hilarity

17 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When showrunners who have worked in broadcast television move to cable or streaming platforms, they are frequently asked how the newfound freedom will impact their material. Will it push them to add more explicit language? Will their characters be naked all the time? How will they push the envelope?

Admittedly, it’s a different world outside ad driven TV. “Look, we did a thing this year where there were two horses copulating right in front of our characters, and it was unbelievably graphic. And it was hilarious,” says Alec Berg, co-creator of HBO’s “Silicon Valley.” “That’s not the kind of thing you can do on a network. You just can’t.”

Similarly, the network’s “Veep” features a fair amount of adult words expressing adult conflicts and a recent episode centered entirely around who exactly called the president an expletive.

World War Z 2: David Fincher linked with directing

10 August 2016 5:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Simon Brew Aug 11, 2016

Brad Pitt is pinning his hopes on David Fincher to steer World War Z 2 to the big screen...

World War Z is getting ready for its second undeadly assault on cinemas, and now star and producer and Brad Pitt thinks there is only one man who can command the aftermath.

David Fincher (who directed Pitt in Fight Club, Seven, and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) is in talks with Brad Pitt’s Plan B, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions to take over from departing director Juan Antonio Bayona for the World War Z sequel. Bayona left the project to direct the next installment of the Jurassic World franchise.

Pitt will produce and star again in World War Z 2. Fincher was reportedly “lukewarm” to the idea at their initial meeting two weeks ago, but “negotiations are much further down the road” now and »

Zoo Season 2 Episode 8 Review: Zero Sum

9 August 2016 8:06 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Jackson and Abe need to stop keeping secrets.

It's becoming clear on Zoo Season 2 Episode 8 that all of our favorite characters are becoming victims of that nagging plot line that often runs through so many soap operas. Nobody wants to communicate with any meaning.

If we just keep secrets, everything will be Ok! As the biggest communication procrastinator on the planet, I'm here to assure all of the Zoo Crew nothing good will come of it.

Remember when Jamie left that awful woman Drew outside the bus at the worst refuge ever so she could be killed by a polar bear or two?

Jamie is going mad psycho killer in general. Logan wasn't the best guy to have around. He sort of fed the Zoo Crew to the wolves, so to speak. But he also came in handy and worked with Jamie when they were trying to stay alive.

Brad Pitt vs. Brad Pitt: Why ‘Allied’ Has An Awards Release, But ‘War Machine’ Doesn’t

8 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Why has Netflix quietly moved their much-ballyhooed acquisition of David Michôd’s “War Machine,” a satiric comedy starring Brad Pitt as a general based on Afghan star Stanley McChrystal, back to 2017?

Netflix is making room for another Brad Pitt movie with awards in its sights, they confirmed. Paramount is releasing Bob Zemeckis’s World War II espionage romance “Allied,”starring Pitt and Marion Cotillard, on November 23. Pitt likes this period: he played military men in both Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” and David Ayer’s “Fury.”

Produced by Pitt’s Plan B with Ian Bryce, “War Machine” marks Netflix’s highest-budget movie commitment to date—Ted Sarandos paid a reported premium higher than its $60-million budget because when the online streamer buys all world rights to a property, it’s a flat acquisition. They pay no overages in success.

But clearly, reaching viewers directly through Netflix is the goal for »

TNT Renews ‘Last Ship,’ Greenlights Charles Barkley Series

31 July 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TNT made several key series announcements during its presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The Turner-owned network greenlit a limited-run series “The Race Card” from Charles Barkley,” ordered Rod Lurie’s “Monster of God” pilot, as well as renewed “The Last Ship” for a fourth season.

In “The Race Card,” a limited-run series, Barkley plans to take on today’s hot-button topics by seeking out the sharpest and most varied viewpoints from cultural leaders and tastemakers.

“We as Americans never discuss the issue of race in this country and how it impacts everything in our lives until something bad happens,” Barkley said. “I see this project as a way to talk about race, class and cultural differences and challenge everyone’s status quo.”

TNT has ordered six hour-long episodes of a planned early 2017 launch. “The Race Card” is a Studio T production in association with DocShop Inc. and »

‘Preacher’ Recap: Hell or Ratwater

24 July 2016 7:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This post contains spoilers for “Preacher” season 1, episode 9, titled “Finish the Song.” To refresh your memory of where we left off, read last week’s “Preacher” recap.

Sheriff Root is done playing games. He’s taking Custer into custody. But after a creepy story about what happens to child killers in prison, hinting at the fact that he thinks Custer killed Eugene, Custer takes an early exit and manages to roll out of the police car unscathed. He makes his escape promising to see Sheriff Root in church on Sunday.

Set on “Plan B,” DeBlanc and Fiore make their way to the Distant Vistas travel agency. After a moment of suspicion from Lucinda the travel agent when the two angels ask her for tickets to Hell, she proceeds to book them tickets. This must be some sort of inter-dimension travel agency. In a (kind of) comedic moment, DeBlanc threatens to report her Lucinda for her advances on »

How was Leeds, did you like it?

Leeds is a fun place.

Vivendi’s Bolloré Suggests He’ll Quit Canal Plus’ Supervisory Board

27 June 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris — Vincent Bollore, the controversial boss of media conglomerate Vivendi, strongly suggested Monday that he would soon step down from the supervisory board of pay-tv service Canal Plus, which Vivendi owns.

At a Canal Plus news conference, Bollore was asked to confirm whether he was on his way out of Canal Plus’ supervisory board, following rumors to that effect in the French press over the weekend.

“I will chair Vivendi’s board until Feb. 17, 2022. At Canal Plus, I don’t need to be much present,” said Bollore, just a few days after responding to questions in the French Senate about his allegedly overbearing influence on the editorial content of Canal Plus. Leaks have suggested that Arnaud de Puyfontaine, CEO of Vivendi, might replace Bollore as chair of Canal Plus’ supervisory board. Puyfontaine declined to comment.

“My role is to strategize in the long term for Vivendi, stay focused on objectives and give Vivendi enough time to see »

The Last Heist Review

17 June 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Man, The Last Heist boasts one damn-fine hook – bank robbers accidentally lock themselves inside with a serial killer who starts picking them off one by one. On premise alone, Mike Mendez’s latest B-Movie hopeful is enough to get genre fans all revved-up – but dammit if execution doesn’t topple such a fragile structure. This is a low-budget flick that reeks of low-budgeting, never able to overcome actors who are obviously shooting fake guns or CGI effects that stick out like digital bullet holes. What should be a raucous heist/slasher hybrid plays like a slightly-elevated game of cops and robbers, cheap in value and lacking in performances.

Sigh – this is the genre fan in me being disappointed.
