Exclusive: Joseph Trapanese scoring 'Divergent' sequel 'Insurgent'

25 November 2014 3:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Catching up with Joseph Trapanese is like getting a summary experience for a hustling composer. In the past year, he's scored, worked in sound design and arranged for a diverse array of films, including franchises like "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" and the "Divergent" series; remakes like "Annie"; a sequel like "The Raid 2"; and original scripts like "Nightcrawler." He's dipped into TV like for "Wonder Woman," and nabbed further video game gigs like he did for racing title "The Crew." On top of all that, he's still active in the pop music sphere, having just completed work with repeat customer Kelly Clarkson and collaborating with acts like M83 for live performances. I sat down with Trapanese back in January, after "Raid 2" punched Sundance in the face, and even after only 10 months, it was time we caught up. This week, during our chat, Trapanese exclusively revealed that he's on tap as »

Blake Lively Never Ages in 'Age of Adaline' Trailer with Harrison Ford

19 November 2014 9:44 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"All these years you've lived, but you've never had a life." After delivering some solid indies like Celeste and Jesse Forever and The Vicious Kind, director Lee Toland Krieger is getting a little whimsical with The Age of Adaline, and the first trailer for the film has just arrived. Blake Lively plays the title character, a woman who mysteriously becomes immortal after an accident. It sounds like a gift, but it also means that she can't grow old with those she loves, as you can see with Ellen Burstyn playing her daughter in the present day. There's an interesting use of an M83 track from the Oblivion soundtrack, and this feels like the kind of movie Disney would release through Touchstone Pictures, but rarely makes anymore. Watch below! Here's the first trailer for Lee Toland Krieger's The Age of Adaline from Tribute: Following a near-fatal accident one icy night, »

Vikings meet The Godfather in Icelandic trilogy

8 November 2014 5:50 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Iceland’s Truenorth attends Afm with slate of original productions.

Sturlungar: The Viking Clan is being pitched as a 13th century Godfather-esque story, being developed as either a trilogy of feature films or a Netflix-style series.

The project is now in development from Truenorth, which is well known as a production services company working on major studio fare like Noah, Oblivion and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in Iceland. The outfit launched its own production division last year under Kristinn Thordarson [pictured] and attends Afm for the first time.

Oscar nominee Fridrik Thor Fridriksson is also on board as producer.

Truenorth is in talks with writers for the first script from the four-part Sturlungar book series.

“The Sturlungar presentation has gained a lot of interest, it is still sitting with one of the studios, and a big-name Us producer could come on board,” said Truenorth founding partner Leifur B. Dagfinnsson. Other Scandinavian »

Afm: Upi Takes Spain on Del Toro, Robbins, Kurylenko Starrer ‘A Perfect Day,’

6 November 2014 12:15 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal Pictures International Spain has acquired Spanish rights to Fernando Leon’s war-zone set human drama “A Perfect Day,” starring Oscar winners Benicio del Toro (“Traffic”) and Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”) as well as actresses Olga Kurylenko (“Oblivion”) and Melanie Thierry (“The Zero Theorem”).

Upi will release “A Perfect Day” in Spain in 2015. Selling international rights to “A Perfect Day,” WestEnd Films will show a new promo to international buyers at the American Film Market on Sunday.

The first English-language film from Leon, a popular Spanish auteur distinguished by the humor of his social-issue dramas, “Perfect Day” is a dramedy-thriller, turning on a motley group of war-zone aid workers dealing with their own very human dramas: Mambru (Del Toro) wants to go home; Katya once wanted Mambru; B (Robbins) doesn’t know what he wants. And what they want rarely matches what they need. When a corpse contaminates the local well, »

1,000 Times Goodnight | Review

24 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Words and Pictures: Binoche Dominates Poppe’s Familial Drama

Norwegian director Erik Poppe makes his English language directorial debut with 1,000 Times Goodnight, featuring an internationally renowned cast that’s headlined by a masterful performance from Juliette Binoche. Basically a family melodrama hedged by topical issues, Poppe’s own experiences as a war photographer serve as the semi-autobiographical impetus for the film, which is perhaps why it’s presented with such nuance. Bolstering the importance of such a hazardous occupation, the film’s tense juxtaposition lies in how one reconciles working in such dangerous conditions while trying to raise a family. Obviously changing his own perspective to that of a mother ups the dramatic potential, and is met with a terrifically inspired performance from Binoche.

A photojournalist that specializes in conflict zones, Rebecca (Binoche) has been following a group of female militants in Kabul. We watch her take photos as »

Edge Of Tomorrow: a case of mishandled marketing?

22 October 2014 7:57 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Sci-fi action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow sagged at the box office, despite glowing reviews. Was its marketing to blame, Ryan wonders...

Looking back over Edge Of Tomorrow’s brief history, and it seems clear that it was a production with something of an identity crisis. Adapted from a Japanese story called All You Need Is Kill, the movie went by that name right up until the summer of 2013, when Warner Bros abruptly changed the title to Edge Of Tomorrow.

Then, when Edge Of Tomorrow got its home release a couple of weeks ago, it seemed to have been given another name change. On its DVD and Blu-ray box, the tagline Live. Die. Repeat, is far more prominent than Edge Of Tomorrow’s title - the movie’s even listed in some online marketplaces as Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow.

It’s the latest curious development in the life of »

'Birdman' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About Michael Keaton's Big Comeback Movie

17 October 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Michael Keaton is perhaps best known for playing Batman in a pair of Tim Burton-directed superhero movies, whose visionary tone has set the standard for the genre until this day. And now he's stepping back into the superhero suit (sort of) for "Birdman," the latest film from "Babel" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

"Birdman" tells the story of an actor who has been immortalized in a series of superhero movies (played, obviously, by Keaton), who decides to attempt a comeback by writing, directing, and starring in a stage adaptation of a Raymond Carver story. Of course, everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. (Andrea Riseborough, Edward Norton, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, and Emma Stone co-star.)

So why is everyone talking about this relatively little movie that could conceivably do very big things? Read on to find out!

20 Actors Whose Iconic Characters All Need to Team Up in Their Own Movies

16 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Let’s call this pitch Filmography Expendables. Take an actor or actress, list his or her best characters and throw them in a movie together as a team of awesomeness. Or, since I’m still certain we’re heading into a “Vs.” movie trend — and the “Civil War” idea for Captain America 3, where Cap fights Iron Man, is further evidence — take a star’s best two characters and pit them against each other. We’re talking gold right there. The necessary effects are there and have been long enough that I’m surprised we haven’t seen more action sequences where an actor is fighting himself as clones or lookalikes or something like that. Oblivion gave us Tom Cruise versus Tom Cruise, but now the next step is to see Ethan Hunt go up against Jack Reacher (it could easily happen since both are from Paramount properties), and then of course they finish in a draw »

‘White Boy Rick’ and the Atavist’s Big Hollywood Score

14 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“It’s certainly a nice thing,” says the journalist Evan Hughes, whose Atavist-published story “The Trials of White Boy Rick” was optioned last week by Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski for six figures, according to a couple of sources — a sum larger than either Hughes or his three-year-old digital-only publisher had previously seen. “It makes the extreme amount of time I spent on this seem less ridiculous.”It’s been about a year and a half since Hughes first heard of Detroit cocaine supplier Rick Wershe — convicted at 17 under a draconian drug law and still in jail 26 years later, despite that law being eventually rolled back — and began digging into claims that the local icon, whom Kid Rock name-checked in a song and Eminem reportedly wanted to play in a movie, was actually (spoiler alert!) a betrayed FBI informant.

'Trials of White Boy Rick' Lands 'Oblivion' Director

10 October 2014 6:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After directing big-budget sci-fi movies such as Tron: Legacy and Oblivion, director Joseph Kosinski is taking on a much smaller project, the adaptation The Trials of White Boy Rick for Universal Pictures.

The plot is based on the Atavist article of the same name written by journalist Evan Hughes, which chronicles the life of Rick Wershe, a teenager living in Detroit in the 1980s. He became a notable cocaine trafficker in the predominantly African-American East Side of Detroit, which earned him the nickname "White Boy Rick." While he was rising through the ranks of Detroit drug dealers, Rick was also working as an undercover informant for the FBI and DEA. The story was first published on The Atatvist website on September 29.

Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark are producing through their Bluegrass Films company, which is based at Universal. Evan Ratliff, who co-founded The Atavist with Jefferson Webb, is serving as an executive producer. »
