Director Peter Berg Slams Caitlyn Jenner’s ESPYs Award

16 July 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Updated: Clear eyes, full heart? Not so much.

While Caitlyn Jenner’s acceptance of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at Wednesday night’s ESPYs drew cheers from the crowd, “Friday Night Lights” creator Peter Berg was evidently jeering.

The “Lone Survivor” director shared a meme on Instagram, circulated by the Facebook account Main Stream Media Sponsor Boycotts, slamming Jenner’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award win. The image contains side-by-side photos of Jenner and U.S. Army veteran Gregory D. Gadson.

“One man traded 2 legs for the freedom of the other to trade 2 balls for 2 boobs. Guess which man made the cover of Vanity Fair, was praised for his courage by President Obama and is to be honored with the ‘Arthur Ashe Courage Award’ by Espn?” the text read. “Yup,” Berg captioned his post, simply.

Later on Thursday, however, Berg backtracked after fielding considerable criticism on the Web. In another Instagram post, »

In her first appearance since coming out as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair, Caitlyn Jenner gave a rousing speech on Wednesday, accepting the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the Espy awards. Shortly after Jenner’s speech aired on ABC’s telecast of the ceremony, director Peter Berg (Hancock, Lone Survivor) – who is also behind NBC’s beloved sports series Friday Night Lights – voiced his opinion of Espy’s choice to award Jenner on Instagram, by sharing a transphobic meme first posted on Facebook by Main Stream Media Sponsor Boycotts on 3 June.

'Mr. Robot' Star Rami Malek on Making an 'Indie Film' on USA Network and Its 'Iconic' Potential

25 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

USA Network isn't the USA Network you know. Not anymore. Not after "Mr. Robot" premiered at the SXSW Film Festival, taking home an audience award before screening at the Tribeca Film Festival and SeriesFest and getting a sneak peak online for anyone with an internet connection. The thriller from creator Sam Esmail bucks just about every association viewers have made with the NBC Universal cable network, ditching the blue skies and episodic storytelling for black hoodies cloaked by night and a gripping, serialized character study.  At its center is Rami Malek, a name you may not know yet but a face you're sure to recognize — and remember liking. Malek, despite his young age of 34, has appeared in everything from critically-acclaimed miniseries ("The Pacific") to breakout indie darlings ("Short Term 12") to big-time studio blockbusters ("Battleship"). Now, he's taking his talents to USA, a decision he had to deliberate on before signing. »

Punching the Numbers: Where Liam Neeson Lies in the History of “Hollywood’s Most Bankable Action Star” Runs

22 June 2015 7:57 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Liam Neeson is Hollywood’s most bankable action star. That’s a statement of fact, but how do we know it is fact? How much more bankable is he than others? First off, we take a look at the box office returns for his action films and match them against the budgets and see what sort of averages and trends pop up.

1st Disclosure: I am not a sabermetrics genius, I’m just a guy that likes to write about action movies. If somebody out there who is a sabermetrics genius saw this and said “There’s a better way to do this.”, it would only bring me joy to see my amateur work improved upon.

2nd Disclosure: I won’t be including results of The Grey and A Walk Among the Tombstones in this pool of data, while both were marketed as action vehicles and have moments of action in them, »

24 Ridiculously Sexy Taylor Kitsch Pictures That Might Make You Blush

22 June 2015 11:20 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. The 34-year-old Canadian first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. This week, he returned to the small screen with his buzzed-about role on True Detective. In other words, now is the perfect time to look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years, including a mix of red carpet appearances and crazy-hot magazine editorials. Brace yourself - there are some really, really good ones. »

8 June 2015 10:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

HBO has debuted two new TV spots in lieu of the release of the anticipated second season of True Detective, which airs in just over three weeks time.

The new season moves to California from the Deep South, and sees a whole new cast involved, including Colin Farrell (Total Recall), Vince Vaughn (Dodgeball), Rachel McAdams (The Vow), Taylor Kitsch (Battleship) and Kelly Reilly (Flight). Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 3-6) directs the first two episodes of the new season.

A bizarre murder brings together three law-enforcement officers and a career criminal, each of whom must navigate a web of conspiracy and betrayal in the scorched landscapes of California. Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective in the all-industrial City of Vinci, La County. Vince Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his life’s work, while his wife and closest ally (Kelly Reilly), struggles with his choices and her own. »

Liam Neeson's Top 10 Roles

7 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Liam Neeson’s career has come full circle.  

After his acting debut in 1978, at a commanding 6’4” Neeson found a niche for himself in action flicks like Excalibur, Krull and even Darkman in 1990 before transitioning into the seriously dramatic roles he was synonymous with throughout most of the 90s and early 2000s: Husbands and Wives, Schindler’s List, Nell and even as Jean Valjean in the non-musical Les Miserables. Sure he dabbled in action and blockbusters along the way, but Neeson was reborn as the latest action hero in 2008 with his role in the sleeper hit Taken.   

Spawning not one but two sequels, Taken launched the next chapter in the Irish actor’s career and leading to roles in The A-Team and Battleship. The actor returned to his father-on-a-mission role as Bryan Mills in Taken 3 once again this year. The film sees Mills chasing after the bad guy, except this time, »

See How Much the "Entourage" Cast Has Changed Since the Show's Premiere

4 June 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's hard to believe it's been 11 years since we first met big screen heartthrob Vincent Chase (Adrien Grenier) and his boys, Johnny Drama (Kevin Dillon), Eric "E" Murphy (Kevin Connolly) and Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) on HBO's "Entourage." And, who can forget our favorite hot-headed agent, Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven)?! The eight-season series was filled to the brim with celebrity cameos, hot Hollywood nightclubs and a whole lot of partying -- and we loved every minute of it. While we finally get to see these boys back together on-screen in the "Entourage" movie on June 5, toofab is taking a look at what Vinny and his pack-mates have been up to since the show premiered over a decade ago in 2004. Grenier was probably best known for starring in the movie "Drive Me Crazy" before he nabbed his "Entourage" role. He later co-starred with Anne Hathaway in "The Devil Wears Prada" and directed two documentaries, »

Fantastic Four: 8 Reasons You Shouldn’t Write It Off Just Yet

1 June 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Every year during summer blockbuster season there’s always one movie that seems a little out of place. Despite a big budget, and an even bigger name cast, they just don’t seem to build much buzz or excitement. An obvious example would be 2012’s Battleship, which was a mega budget would-be franchise starter with Liam Neeson and Rihanna, but all the explosions in the world couldn’t get people jazzed about the unholy fusion of a board game with a Transformers movie. Battleship sank real quick. Pun completely intended.

And the black sheep of summer 2015 looks to be Josh Trank’s reboot of the Fantastic Four. The film was kept under wraps for a suspiciously long time and reports of a rocky shoot, huge changes to the comic lore and director/producer fights have left fans worried. But despite this there’s plenty of reason to »

'Point Break' Remake Highlights a Problem with Today's Blockbuster Films & No, It's Not the Story

29 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The problem with the new Point Break remake has nothing to do with your inability to grow-up. It's doing nothing to your childhood unless you still identify with a man and his mullet. Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 original is still a great film for those of us that saw it when it was released and the fact it was remade into The Fast and The Furious ten years later and is now being remade just shy of 25 years after its original release simply means they're looking to bring a similar story to a new kind of audience, and I'm actually interested in the story they are aiming to tell. As was evident in the trailer and described in the film's plot synopsis, the gang of criminal rogues led by a man named Bodhi (Edgar Ramirez) are killing whoever may be in their way toward "liberating" the world's riches, sending the global economy into a tailspin. »

Cannes: After Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ Niels Juul Seeks to Bring Other Cecchi Gori Properties to the Bigscreen (Exclusive)

21 May 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back from the Taiwan set of Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” which just wrapped shooting, Niels Juul, CEO of L.A.-based Cecchi Gori Media, is now shifting his energies to several other projects he has in various stages, including pics with Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Kafka as central characters.

“It’s been an amazing experience,” Juul (pictured with Scorsese) enthused about “Silence,” on which he is an executive producer, having been instrumental in  bringing to the screen the eponymous Shusaku Endo novel about God’s silence in the face of human suffering. Cecchi Gori holds the movie rights.

“Everyone has been bending over backwards to get this amazing movie made. Everyone taking a [pay] cut; everyone basically working for scale,” he recounted. “We are all making an amazing effort to make an independent $51 million movie.”

It’s been tough working “under extremely hard conditions,” Juuls said. But “Marty has come in on budget and on time, »

How the year 2012 helped redefine blockbuster movies

20 May 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...

The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.

Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.

The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ To Wrap In Taiwan

4 May 2015 9:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Martin Scorsese is in the final few days of shooting “Silence,” his historical drama about faith and religion. Some 14 weeks of photography in Taipei will be completed May 15.

At a press event in Taipei on Monday, Scorsese spoke of the long journey to making the film, which is based on Shusaku Endo’s novel “Silence” about God’s silence in the face of human suffering. Scorsese had prepared a draft of the screenplay as early as 1992, but said that the origins were deeper still.

“The subject matter presented by Shusaku Endo was in my life since I was very, very young. I was very much involved in religion, I was raised in a strong Catholic family,” Scorsese said.

While the book is set in 17th century Japan, Scorsese located the production in Taiwan, following an introduction by Ang Lee. It was entirely shot in the territory with various locations in Taipei (Yangmingshan, »

Deepwater Horizon Is Putting Together An Awesome Cast

11 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

When there was an explosion on a Bp oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, it spewed oil into the water for 87 days. Peter Berg (Battleship) is turning the real life disaster into a cinematic thriller, Deepwater Horizon, and in the process he.s putting together an impressive cast. There were a couple of stars already in place, and they just added two more high-profile actors to beef up the call sheet. There were eleven crew members killed in the blast, and Berg, who took over the project after J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year) left over creative differences, has said that he wants to tell the story about the "real heroes" working on the rig. He hopes to honor the ones aboard who tried to prevent the explosion and subsequent calamity, and it sounds like he.s taking a similar approach as he did with the real »

Dylan O’Brien In Talks For Deepwater Horizon; Kurt Russell Also On Board

10 April 2015 3:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Update: Variety reports that Kurt Russell, hot off a supporting turn in Furious 7, is also circling a role.

Original: Summit’s Deepwater Horizon, about the 2010 Bp oil-rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico that took the lives of 11 people and spilled oil into the ocean for a horrific 87 days, got a whole lot less interesting when A Most Violent Year director J.C. Chandor exited and was replaced by Battleship helmer Peter Berg, but the talent that’s being assembled in front of the camera for the pic is undeniably exciting. Mark Wahlberg and Jane the Virgin breakout Gina Rodriguez are already attached, and now The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien is in talks for a major role.

O’Brien, who first hit it big with the teen crowd back in 2011 with the hit MTV series Teen Wolf (now gearing up for its fifth season), has been a star »
