Big Screen to Small Screen: Top 10 Films About Television

13 July 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There has always been an understated rivalry between the mediums of movies and television. Many years ago it was even thought as being somewhat of a drastic career letdown if actors/actresses from film decided to depart for the landscape of television. The truth is that for some performers that had stalled or uneventful momentum in motion pictures that the concept of “slumming it” in television actually saved their show business profession. Hence, the boob tube made them relevant whereas the big screen had unceremoniously passed them by.

However, there is also a mutual respect that cinema and television share that go hand in hand when shaping our appreciation for entertainment on both the big and small screen. When movies depict the aspects of the TV world giving a sociological, psychological or emotional perspective then it is not so uncool to be a proud couch potato after all, right? Let »

Price: DVD $Tba, Blu-ray $Tba

Jon Hamm (TV’s Mad Men) finds talent in an unusual place in Million Dollar Arm.

The sports movie is based on the true story of sports agent J.B. Bernstein (Hamm) whose career is not going well.

To try to save his career, Bernstein goes to India to produce a competition reality show called “The Million Dollar Arm.” He hopes to find a cricketer who he can turn into a baseball pitcher.

With the help of cantankerous retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin, Stand Up Guys), Bernstein discovers two men who have no idea about playing baseball but can throw a mean fastball. Bernstein brings them to America, and the culture shock begins.

Lake Bell (In a World…), Aasif Mandvi (The Internship) and Bill Paxton (Hatfields & McCoys) also star in the PG film, »

Colin Farrell in talks for 'True Detective' season 2

11 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Colin Farrell could be the new star of HBO’s True Detective.

The Irish actor (Fright Night, In Bruges) has been in talks for the role. We’ve been sitting on this news waiting for the deal to close, but as another outlet broke ranks and posted, we’re joining the inevitable online chorus despite the situation still being uncertain. So keep in mind there is no deal at this time as sources say the actor has not accepted HBO’s current offer. But as of today, Farrell is definitely in the mix and considered the most likely lead name to join the acclaimed drama. »

Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch Eye 'True Detective' Season 2

11 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

In the dog days of summer, we sometimes feel very, very thirsty -- and not for a cool, refreshing beverage, but for any information about the upcoming second season of HBO's peerless mystery series "True Detective." So far we know that there will be four lead characters, that at least one of them will be a woman (here's hoping) and that the central mystery concerns the "secret occult history of the United States transportation system" (ohmygodsocool). But today we got our biggest bit of information yet, as it looks like HBO is zeroing in on two of the new season's leads. And yes, they are very impressive.

According to The Wrap, Colin Farrell is negotiating for the lead role in "True Detective" Season 2. According to the site, "HBO was intent on landing a true movie star," and apparently Farrell fills that role although god only knows when he had a true hit movie, »

‘WarGames’ Remake Gets a New Director & Writer

25 June 2014 8:48 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Remakes/reboots are really just business as usual for Hollywood, but in recent years it’s become especially fashionable to revamp films, movie franchises, and/or properties that were born in the 1980s (The Karate Kid, Fright Night, 21 Jump Street, and so forth). It’s been a few years since last we had anything to report about MGM’s planned re-imaging of another ’80s child in WarGames, but today we can offer you a significant update in the form of reports about the project getting a new director and writer (along with an idea of who’s being eyed to headline the film).

The 1983 iteration of WarGames, for those unfamiliar, revolves around a teen computer expert (Matthew Broderick) who inadvertently begins playing a game with a secret ...

'Million Dollar Arm' (2014) Movie Review

15 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Million Dollar Arm is a Disney sports movie, which is to say you should walk in knowing exactly what to expect, a heart-warming film about people rising to the challenge, getting over themselves and finding success in the face of defeat. That's what you should expect and, for the most part, that's what you get. Perhaps the oddest thing for me, was that it's directed by Craig Gillespie, though he does seem to be making the rounds going from the edgy sports comedy Mr. Woodcock, to the indie dramedy Lars and the Real Girl, the comedic horror in Fright Night and now soft, family fare for Disney. It's a curious directorial path, but he seems comfortable with it. The obvious and easiest comparison to make is to call this film "Jerry Maguire light", which is really saying something since Maguire is pretty light stuff to start with. However, we're dealing »

Craig Gillespie On Why Making 'Lars and the Real Girl' Wasn't That Different From Working With Disney

15 May 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On the surface, Disney's Jon Hamm-starring feel-good family film "Million Dollar Arm" has all the makings of a typical studio sports movie, but dig deeper and you'll be surprised to learn the project has some serious indie cred going for it. For starters, it boasts a screenplay by multiple Independent Spirit Award-winner Thomas McCarthy ("Win Win," "The Visitor"), who makes his foray into live action studio filmmaking with this project. Adding to its indie appeal is the director Disney employed for the gig, Craig Gillespie, of "Lars and the Real Girl" fame. In addition to "Lars" and "Million Dollar Arm," Gillespie is best known for directing multiple episodes of the Showtime series "United States of Tara," the remake of "Fright Night," and countless commercials and music videos for artists like Kid Cudi. "Million Dollar Arm," based on actual events, centers on a desperate sports agent (Hamm) who concocts a »

Wamg At The Million Dollar Arm Press Day

12 May 2014 6:47 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Baseball season is upon us, and so is Disney’s new homerun Million Dollar Arm, which opens this Friday. Recently, Wamg attended a press day where star (and fellow St. Louis Cardinals fan) Jon Hamm joined co-star Lake Bell along with real-life inspirations for the film Jb Bernstein and Rinku Singh to talk about the new summer baseball flick in a small press conference. Also participating were producers Gordon Gray and Joe Roth. Check it out below.

Based on a true story, sports agent Jb Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, Jb travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm. »

Director Craig Gillespie Talks 'Million Dollar Arm' and Doing the Dramedy Dance

9 May 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Craig Gillespie (the "Fright Night" remake and "Lars and the Real Girl") is certainly no stranger to offbeat drama and comedy, and "Million Dollar Arm" represents his greatest dance with dramedy. The inspirational biopic about recruiting two raw talents from India and turning them into major league baseball pitchers in less than a year also afforded "Mad Men's" Jon Hamm the opportunity to show off the full range of his acting chops, according to the director. Meanwhile, even though live-action family fare has been supplanted by animation, Disney continues its string of true-life sports dramas with "Million Dollar Arm," mixing the fish-out-of-water theme with a redemptive arc. Sports agent Jb Bernstein (Hamm) is so desperate for star clients that he concocts a wild scheme to find baseball's next great pitching ace in India. It's like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack of cricket bowlers. Yet Dinesh ("Slumdog Millionaire »

Dave Franco promises 'Neighbors' is 'insane'

5 May 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Of all the Francos right now, Dave Franco is the Daviest. In other words, it's silly to compare James Franco and Dave Franco because the more we see of the two of them, the more it becomes apparent that shared DNA aside, these guys are radically different performers. In "Neighbors," Franco plays Pete, the right-hand-man to Teddy (Zac Efron). The two of them rule the frat in the film and exist as a sort of living embodiment of the bro code. One of the things that "Neighbors" does well is the way it begins with broad stereotypes and then reveals the characters to be far weirder than they originally seem. Franco's character emerges as the "smartest" of the frat guys, an admittedly low bar, and his relationship with Teddy drives the film is some very funny directions. Franco also returns in "22 Jump Street" this summer for at least one sequence, »

Classic Horror Trailers: Psycho II

5 May 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I have a massive amount of love and respect for Psycho II. To take what is considered by many to be not only one of the greatest horror films of all time, but one of the greatest films of all time Period, and make a sequel to it…that takes some courage. Not only did writer Tom Holland (Fright Night, Child’S Play) and director Richard Franklin (Roadgames) rise to the challenge, they created a sequel that is held with intense reverence by fans all across the board.

Picking up 22 years after the events of the first Psycho, Psycho II brings Norman Bates home, where he is thrown into a web of confusion (most of which is at the hands of Lila Loomis, sister of Marion Crane, Janet Leigh’s unfortunate character from the original film), unsure if he’s losing his mind or if ‘mother’ is back at it. »

Summer Horror Movie Memories & Fright Guide to the Last 34 Years

5 May 2014 12:55 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

As a horror fan who thrives on the sight of autumn leaves, the intermingling of orange and black and the unmistakable smell of a freshly-gutted pumpkin, of course I relish the idea of a fall season jam-packed with new horror films in the theater. But my fondest horror movie memories come from those offerings that arrived during the summer. If you've followed my ramblings over the years, you know my go-to summer horror movie recollection. It involves getting the opportunity to see Fright Night opening night - at nine years old - and being presented, en route to the theater, with an escape plan by my father, in case I was too scared to see the film.

Sierra McCormick, Grace Phipps and Lexi Atkins Offer Some Kind of Hate

29 April 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

A new slasher movie is on it's way from Caliber Media and Revek Entertainment. 'Some Kind of Hate' is the bringing together of revenge and the supernatural as a bullied kid summons a spirit to deal with his tormentors. It's good to see writer/director Adam Egypt Mortimer trying something a little bit different with the genre but it does sound like a familiar amalgamation of past horror features that have already treaded similar ground - such as Brit horror 'Tormented' amongst others. But still our hopes are high. 'Some Kind of Hate' stars Ronen Rubinstein, the gorgeous Grace Phipps ('Fright Night'), Sierra McCormick, Michael Polish, Noah Segan ('Looper'), Spencer Breslin ('The Happening'), Maestro Harrell ('Suburgatory'), Jasper Polish ('The Astronaut Farmer'), Jeremy Hawkins, Brando Eaton and the sexy Lexi Atkins -below ('Zombeavers'). »

'Reunion' completes casting

28 April 2014 10:53 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Reunion, Bert Havird’s shock-a-minute psychological horror-thriller, is excited to announce that it has completed casting!

Helmed by Shawn Chou, the feature, which plays on themes of love, loss, abandonment and revenge, will wrap in mid-April and plans are afoot to have a rough cut ready to wow distributors by mid-May. Shooting in Topanga, Malibu and Anaheim, Reunion already boasts the talents of Jack Turner, Sarah Schreiber, Reign Morton, Cara Santana and Maria Olsen, but this week is all about the film’s new stars!

Not one, but two amazing young actors have been cast to play the younger versions of Jack Turner’s Brad – our troubled leading man – and these boys, of whom we will, no doubt, be seeing a Lot in future, are Lucas Barker and William Leon.

8-year-old Barker’s intensity packs a simply phenomenal punch, and he is best known for his appearances in the chilling »

Chris Pine Is Ready For 'The Finest Hours,' Michael B. Jordan Set For 'Men Who Kill' & More

21 April 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hollywood is still trying to make Chris Pine happen. Outside of the "Star Trek" franchise, the actor has been a non-starter, but that's not stopping Disney from choosing Pine to lead "The Finest Hours." Penned by Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson and based on the book by Casey Sherman and Michael J. Tougias, the film would tell the story of a 1952 Coast Guard mission to rescue the crew of two oil tankers that crash off the coast of Cape Cod. Robert Schwentke was originally set to direct, but now that he's busy with "Insurgent," Craig Gillespie ("Fright Night") is now in talks. [The Wrap] Fox is keeping their "Fantastic Four" and "Chronicle" star Michael B. Jordan in the family, snapping up the T.J. Fixman pitch "Men Who Kill" and developing it for the actor. No firm plot details, but tonally it's said to be "an international 'Bad Boys,' " which says about all you need to know. »

Chris Pine to Join Coast Guard Guard Film The Finest Hours

18 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Star Trek actor Chris Pine is in talks to join Disney's coast guard film, The Finest Hours. It will tell the true story of a daring 1952 coast guard rescue of 84 men off Cape Cod after two oil tankers collided and were torn in half by waves during a fierce blizzard. Craig Gillespie is also in talks to direct the project. He's the director of films such as Fright Night and Million Dollar Arm.

This really is an incredible and heroic story, and I think it will make for an amazing film. This is a perfect project for Pine to take on. It's easy to imagine him in a movie like this. The film will be an adaptation of a book with the same name, and here's the synopsis:

In the winter of 1952, New England was battered by the most brutal nor'easter in years. As the weather wreaked havoc on land, »

Chris Pine will try to save the day in 'The Finest Hours'

18 April 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chris Pine is back to save the day.  The "Star Trek Into Darkness" star is currently in negotiations to play the lead in the drama "The Finest Hours" for Disney. Based on true events, "Hours" takes place in 1952, when two massive oil tankers collided in the Atlantic off the coast of New England. The Coast Guard launch a mammoth rescue operation in order to save the ships' crews, according to Variety. Although nothing is confirmed, Pine would likely play one of the lead rescuers.  Craig Gillespie ("Million Dollar Arm," "Lars and the Real Girl," "Fright Night") will direct, while Jim Whitaker will produce the film.  Pine recently starred in "Jack Ryan," and will next be seen in the all-star musical "Into the Woods," and the comedy sequel "Horrible Bosses 2." »
