17 May 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

17 May 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In less than a week, Disney.s latest science-fiction adventure will hit theaters and expose us to the world of Tomorrowland. With two-time Oscar winning director Brad Bird joining, Oscar-winning actor, George Clooney, it is bound to be an incredible ride. But in a film exploring scientific curiosity along with that Walt Disney-inspired imagination, some thrilling surprises are surely in store, and now knowing that Samuel L. Jackson was almost in an awesome post-credits scene, Tomorrowland sounds even more enticing.  Tomorrowland scribe, Damon Lindelof, screenwriter behind Lost and Prometheus revealed a post-credits idea he had proposed to director Brad Bird. He told IGN that while it gave the team a good chuckle, it didn.t make further than that: My pitch was that there was going to be a post-credits scene in Tomorrowland and at the very end of the movie, if you watch the credits, there's a pin and »

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 »

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller.

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 »
