Peter Jackson Suggests Even Longer Cuts Of 'The Lord Of The Rings' Could Be Released

26 July 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Many many epochs past, before claiming its rightful status as the beloved Oscar-winning trilogy known the world over, "The Lord of the Rings" was planned to be a single movie, directed by John Madden ("Shakespeare In Love," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"). Obviously, that didn't come to pass, and Peter Jackson went in the opposite direction. Given a nearly unlimited canvas to paint on, and buoyed by global success, the theatrical cuts of each movie were supplemented by extended footage on home video. And when Jackson returned to helm "The Hobbit" after Guillermo del Toro's exit, it wasn't long until the planned two-movie saga was expanded to yet another trilogy. In short, Jackson has an inexhaustible supply of J.R.R. Tolkien's material to put on the big screen, and today at Comic-Con he suggested even more could be coming from "The Lord of the Rings."

Film Review: ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’

25 July 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Beef bourguignon or tandoori goat? Career success or family loyalty? You can actually have it all, according to “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” a culture-clash dramedy that presents itself as the most soothing brand of cinematic comfort food. As such, this genteel, overlong adaptation of Richard C. Morais’ 2010 novel about two rival restaurants operating in a sleepy French village is not without its pleasures — a high-energy score by A.R. Rahman, exquisite gastro-porn shot by Linus Sandgren, the winningly barbed chemistry of Helen Mirren and Om Puri — all prepared to exacting middlebrow specifications and ensured to go down as tastily and tastefully as possible. With the formidable backing of producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, the DreamWorks concoction should cater to a broad array of arthouse appetites, particularly among those viewers who embraced the similar East-meets-West fusion cuisine of “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.”

Film Review: ‘And So It Goes’

12 July 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Somewhere, Billy Joel is cringing. While the title of Rob Reiner’s “And So It Goes” seems intended as take-it-on-the-chin affirmation of life’s inevitable detours and potholes, the movie itself feels like a surrender — to the kind of geriatric burlesque that increasingly seems to be the only game in town for A-list stars of Social Security age. Rivaling headliner Michael Douglas’ recent altacocker ensembler “Last Vegas” in its quantity of arthritic slapstick and tearjerking platitudes, this independently financed reunion project for the actor and his “American President” director is being positioned by upstart distrib Clarius as an alternative to the summer’s comicbook blockbusters. But “And So It Goes” will need a Viagara-sized box office miracle to come anywhere near the niche success of the recent “Parental Guidance” ($77 million) and “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” ($46 million), to say nothing of Reiner’s own “The Bucket List” ($93 million).

Talking road trips and buddy movies with the stars and directors of 'Land Ho!'

11 July 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's a good weekend for catching up on Sundance highlights, big and small. Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" is, of course, the film on everybody's lips at the moment — and deservedly so — but that's no reason to ignore a more modest independent tale of growing up and growing out, albeit at a slightly different age. Aaron Katz and Martha Stephens' droll, laid-back comedy "Land Ho!" is the first collaboration between the two writer-directors, each one with a handful of delicately formed micro-indies behind them, and it is itself a story of an unexpected partnership: the plot centers on two drifting retirees, formerly in-laws, whose friendship is tested and deepened over the course of a spontaneous road trip through Iceland. It's the kind of premise that, on paper, could signify treacly hijinks in the vein of "The Bucket List" or "Grumpy Old Men," but Katz and Stephens' film is far subtler »

CBS Films Acquires Matthew Warchus Cannes Crowdpleaser 'Pride' for Fall Release

10 July 2014 2:35 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Another Cannes entry has found a buyer: CBS Films has acquired U.S. rights to Tony-winning director Matthew Warchus's "Pride" and is wasting no time opening the well-reviewed dramatic comedy starring Bill Nighy ("The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"), Imelda Staunton ("Maleficent"), Dominic West ("The Hour)" and Paddy Considine ("Submarine"). The film played well at Directors' Fortnight. CBS Films, which mounted an ambitious awards campaign for last year's "Inside Llewyn Davis," will release the film in theaters on September 19th.  Directed by Warchus ("Simpatico") from a screenplay by actor-turned-writer Stephen Beresford inspired by a true story, "Pride" is set in the summer of 1984, when Margaret Thatcher was in charge and the National Union of Mineworkers was on strike. When London gay and lesbian activists raise money to support the strikers’ families, the Union »

CBS Films Picks Up Pathé's 'Pride' for Release in Us This September

10 July 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: Recently we featured the trailer for the British drama Pride following the true story of gay and lesbian activists who threw their support behind the families of striking miners in the United Kingdom in 1984. At the time, the film hadn't been slated for a release in the United States, but CBS FIlms has just announced acquisition of the Pathé, and they'll release the film on September 19th this fall. The film features Bill Nighy (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Imelda Staunton (Maleficent), Dominic West (The Hour), Paddy Considine (Submarine) and more. It certainly looks like a timely and charming tale. »

The Hundred-foot Journey Featurette: Producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey Discuss Fusing Two Opposite Cultures

7 July 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

DreamWorks has released a new The Hundred-Foot Journey featurette for director Lasse Hallström’s (Chocolat) adaptation of the Richard C. Morais novel of the same name.  The story centers the rivalry between an Indian restaurant that is 100 feet away from a three-Michelin-star restaurant in France, with the eccentric French chef (Helen Mirren) reluctantly forming a bond with the young Indian boy (Manish Dayal) whose family owns the quaint Indian restaurant.  Based on the trailer, the pic looks to be a nice, international story in the vein of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with a bounty of food porn to boot—and I’m perfectly fine with that.  Not everything needs to be deadly serious or colorfully explosive, and as producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey explain in this featurette, the film also touches on the great gaps that surface between cultures and how there’s more that unites us than divides us. »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

Last year it was announced that the The Wachowskis (The Matrix, Speed Racer, Cloud Atlas) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5, Thor, Underworld Awakening) would be teaming up with Netflix to develop a new series called Sense8. Up to this point all that we've know about the show is that it was developed from a conversation about "the ways technology simultaneously unites and divides us." It's also been described as "a gripping tale of minds linked and souls hunted.”

Thanks to Deadline, we now have a lot more information on the ten episode series, including the large cast and details on the plot. 

Naveen Andrews (Lost), Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), and Brian J. Smith (Stargate Universe) are among a 14-member international cast. As for the story, the following information comes from  Straczynski, who is the showrunner:

Not only must they figure out what happened and why and what it means for the future of humanity, they must do so while being hunted by an organization out to capture, kill or vivisect them.”

Three Series Where Directors Excelled This TV Season

16 June 2014 8:34 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Masters of Sex’: Carrying a Cinematic Sensibility to the Small Screen

Michael Apted first found fame in 1964 as the director of “Seven Up,” a groundbreaking television documentary charting the lives of British children that has since spawned a veritable institution, each film revisiting the subjects seven years later (2012’s “56 Up” was the latest

So it’s a befitting progression that Apted, who also helmed the James Bond film “The World Is Not Enough” and the Jodie Foster starrer “Nell,” would find himself back in TV at this juncture in his career, this time directing episodes of Showtime’s “Masters of Sex,” a series about pioneering physician William Masters and his research partner Virginia

While Apted’s return to TV is pragmatic in part — “The sort of movies I grew up doing are not made anymore and it’s difficult to find a project that I want to do” — he »

Tom Hanks-Steven Spielberg Cold War Thriller Set for Oct. 16, 2015

16 June 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

DreamWorks and Disney have dated the untitled Tom Hanks-Steven Spielberg Cold War spy thriller for Oct. 16, 2015.

The studios have also set Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s book “The Bfg” for July 1, 2016.

Joel and Ethan Coen came on board last month to write the script for the Cold War project, which Marc Platt and Kristie Macosko Krieger will produce with Spielberg. The Coen Brothers, who won screenwriting Oscars for “Fargo” and “No Country for Old Men,” are revising Matt Charman’s script.

The untitled project is based on the true story of James Donovan, who Hanks will portray. Donovan was the American attorney enlisted by the CIA during the Cold War to surreptitiously negotiate the 1962 release of Francis Gary Powers, the U-2 spy plane pilot who was shot down over Russia two years earlier.

Variety reported that Hanks had come on board the project in mid-April. »
