Noomi Rapace to play opera singer Maria Callas in new biopic

14 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Prometheus) has signed on to play the influential opera singer Maria Callas in a new romantic biopic entitled Callas, which is set to be directed by Niko Caro (Whale Rider, North Country) and will revolve around the passionate relationship she had with Aristotle Onassis over almost two decades.

“This movie is about an extraordinary woman whose deepest desire is to lead an ordinary life with the man of her choice,” said producer Guido De Angelis. “Callas was la Divina, a goddess, who just wanted to be a normal woman; she found out she couldn’t. It sounds like an ancient myth. Niki Caro immediately identified and superbly built into the script this epic, deeply emotional and dramatic quality of the story. And we are absolutely thrilled that Noomi has come unboard, as she is dream casting for Callas. We are convinced she »

Mad Max: Fury Road movie review: warlords is hell

13 May 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Astonishing. Achieves its grotesque, magnificent brutality in an old-fashioned way that serves as a smackdown to bloated, sterile CGI monstrosities. I’m “biast” (pro): big sci-fi fan; love Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Bubbling up in conversations I’ve had with other critics and film fans recently has been a recurring debate: What is the future of the action movie? Where can the genre go from the bloated, calculated CGI monstrosities it has been vomiting up lately? (Even the mostly enjoyable ones seem to culminate in frenetic cartoons of stuff whizzing around banging into other stuff in ways that barely even register with the eye, and which seems deliberately designed to be incoherent.) Actually, it’s not even a debate, really: no one seems to have any idea where action might move, and most likely, »

The Leftovers Season 2: Damon Lindelof Teases New Direction, The Wire’s Influence

12 May 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Like most television writers, Damon Lindelof cut his teeth as a staff writer and producer on a handful of television action-melodramas, including Crossing Jordan, but broke out as one of the key creative forces behind Lost, alongside J.J. Abrams. This led to a slew of major writing gigs, including penning the scripts for Prometheus and World War Z, and recently re-teaming with Abrams on the unfairly derided Star Trek: Into Darkness. He's also written extensively for a handful of animated series. [caption id="attachment_347485" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via HBO[/caption] These days, Lindelof's primary focuses is on Tomorrowland, the upcoming, highly secretive science fiction epic that he wrote with director Brad Bird, and The Leftovers, the supernatural drama series he developed for HBO, which got picked up for a second season following its initial run last year. Adapted from co-creator Tom Perrotta's novel of the same name, the show takes a distinctly mordant »

New poster and character featurettes for Mad Max: Fury Road

12 May 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Mad Max: Fury Road set to explode into cinemas this Friday [read our review here], Warner Bros. has debuted yet another poster for the hotly-anticipated film, along with three character featurettes; check them out here…

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos.

Quiz: All about Charlize Theron

11 May 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Charlize Theron has done it all. Showing up in everything from clever comedies like Young Adult to live-action renditions of classic fairytales and everything in between, this prolific actress has an impressive variety of roles under her belt.

Theron, who happens to be bilingual, is also an Oscar and Golden Globe winner, if you weren’t convinced of her talent by the films she’s been in and the people she’s worked with. She’s no stranger to futuristic and post-apocalyptic worlds, having played memorable roles in 2012’s Prometheus and 2009’s The Road, which leads us to believe she will have no problem taking on the intense Imperator Furiosa in this month’s Mad Max: Fury Road.

Box Office: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ ‘Pitch Perfect 2′ Eye $40 Million Openings

7 May 2015 4:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Pitch Perfect 2″ debut next weekend, they look poised to divide and conquer the genders, with the apocalyptic adventure monopolizing men and the a cappella comedy cornering women.

Early tracking suggests that both films will open to $40 million or higher, with most firms giving the edge to “Pitch Perfect 2.” Sources at Universal, the studio behind “Pitch Perfect 2,” are pleased with how trailers and promotional materials are resonating with moviegoers, but are more conservative with their estimates, predicting a debut of $30 million. That would double the first film’s opening and represent a strong start for a film that carries a slender $29 million budget.

Mad Max: Fury Road,” which cost $150 million-plus to make, poses a much riskier proposition for backers Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, starting with the fact that the most recent film in the series, “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,” was in theaters 30 years ago. »

Marc Streitenfeld’s Soundtrack For Gil Kenan’s Poltergeist Available May 19

7 May 2015 3:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

British director Gil Kenan proved his atmospheric take on the horror and fantasy genres with his movies Monster House and City of Ember. Now, with legendary filmmaker and producer Sam Raimi (Spiderman, Evil Dead, The Grudge), Kenan directs the remake of the classic 1982 horror movie Poltergeist.

For the soundtrack, available May 19 via Sony Classical, Kenan chose German film score composer Marc Streitenfeld, known for his collaborations with director Ridley Scott.

Poltergeist contemporizes the scary tale about a family – starring Sam Rockwell (Moon, The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) and Rosemarie DeWitt (Cinderella Man, Rachel Getting Married) – whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces.

When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter (Kennedi Clements) captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

Acknowledged for his ambitious and intelligent score for Prometheus, as well as the multi-faceted soundtrack, The Grey, Streitenfeld »

Have We Finally Reached (and Found) Our New Stars for a New Erac

6 May 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are only a select few actors in the entire world who can command $20 million for a movie role simply by being in front of the cameras when they start to roll, but that exclusive club gained a new member recently. Her name, you askc Jennifer Lawrence, of course. Didn't you read the headlinec According to a report at The Hollywood Reporter, Lawrence is set to pull in twenty rocks for her role opposite Chris Pratt (who's getting $10 million) in Passengers, a long-gestating sci-fi feature that ultimately landed at Sony. Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon were once attached to star, then Reeves and Rachel McAdams, and now hot commodities Lawrence and Pratt are locked in as the leads, with Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) set to direct. Lawrence's negotiation strength has grown exponentially since picking up her first Oscar nomination for Winter's Bone and starring in both the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises. »

Ridley Scott’s Costume Designer Janty Yates On Exodus

5 May 2015 6:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ridley Scott’s Exodus is out now on DVD, Digital HD and Blu-ray, so I had a chat with the film’s costume designer, the exceedingly talented, effortlessly charming Janty Yates, about on working on this film, and with Ridley Scott in general. We touched a little on their upcoming sci-fi film The Martian and unmade would-be classic Tripoli too.

Brendon: Does Ridley bring a lot of the first ideas to the table or does he expect you to set the agenda first of all as you start each project?

Janty: Usually, I get the script quite early then spend three to four weeks doing really serious research. Then I present Ridley with a show and tell, and that’s when he mentions, for example, that I’ll need to come up with a new armour for the Hittites. That’s what happened this time. We get an awful lot »

New Mad Max: Fury Road Images Sell Even More Madness Than Trailers

5 May 2015 6:13 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The summer is here, and with the arrival of Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Jurassic World right around the corner, the heat is really kicking up. Still, no movie has had me as excited as Mad Max: Fury Road.

The trailers have been insane, and no movie in years has sold me so quickly with the theory of wild, adrenaline-rush like this one.

You’ve seen plenty in the trailers to get your mind racing, but the new set of images really give you a lot of information (I think) about how cool this really might be.

Just take a look at this one –

courtesy Warner Bros.

Sure, you’ve seen the idea in the trailer, but just the sheer insanity of everything in this image. If this movie doesn’t turn out to be the most fun of the year, that in itself will be a feat.
