'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. »

'Oblivion' Director Joseph Kosinski Follows 'Trials of White Boy Rick'

10 October 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While it sounds like The Trials of White Boy Rick could easily be an alternate title for the sequel to Joe Dirt that's inexplicably happening with David Spade, it's just a true crime adaptation being set up at Universal Pictures. THR reports the studio has optioned the article of the same name by Evan Hughes which focuses on Rick Wershe, a teenager who lived in Detroit in the 1980s and ended up becoming a notorious drug kingpin on the East Side of the city, as well as a cocaine trafficker with the nickname of, you guessed it, White Boy Rick. But the twist is that Wershe was actually an undercover informant for the FBI and DEA. The article comes from The Atavist, a digital non-fiction publication, who posted the story just last month. And now the trade reports that Oblivion and Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski is attached to direct »

Tron: Legacy Director to Helm The Trials Of White Boy Rick

10 October 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Tron: Legacy and Oblivion director Joseph Kosinski is looking to take on a very different, non sci-fi project called The Trials of White Boy Rick. The movie is based on an article written by Evan Hughes, and it tells a true-crime story that centers on a teen named Rick Wershe who lived in Detroit in the 1980s. He ended up joining "the ranks of the drug kingpins on the predominantly black East Side to become a prolific cocaine trafficker, going by the name 'White Boy Rick.'"

I'd never heard of this story until today, but the report goes on to say that it uncovers the true identity of Wershe, who became one of the biggest drug dealers in the city while working undercover for the FBI and DEA.

This sounds like it will make for an interesting film, and I'm glad that Kosinski is taking it on as a project. »

Oblivion Director Joseph Kosinski to Helm True Crime Drama The Trials Of White Boy Rick

10 October 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Joseph Kosinski is looking to step out of the sci-fi realm.  The visually-gifted director behind Tron: Legacy and Oblivion has become attached to direct the true crime story The Trials of White Boy Rick for Universal Pictures, per THR.  Based on a story by Evan Hughes published in The Atavist last month, the film will tell the true tale of Rick Wershe, a teen living in Detroit in the 1980s who rose to prominence on the predominantly black East Side as a prolific cocaine trafficker by the name of “White Boy Rick.”  Hughes uncovered the truth of Ricky, which was that he was working as an undercover informant for the FBI and DEA while becoming one of the biggest drug dealers in Detroit.  More after the jump. The Trials of White Boy Rick marks a departure for Kosinski, who dabbled in heavy sci-fi for his first two features.  2013’s »

This Week In Home Entertainment: Edge Of Tomorrow, A Million Ways To Die In The West And More

Live. Die. Repeat / Edge Of Tomorrow Blu-ray Well, it.s official: Starting today, Edge of Tomorrow is now christened on its Blu-ray box as Live. Die. Repeat / Edge of Tomorrow. Tell all your friends. Or don.t, as the confounding title of this movie has no effect whatsoever on how awesome this movie is. Tom Cruise has been scraping the bottle of the barrel with a few duds recently, including the preposterous Rock of Ages and the boring Oblivion. Perhaps because of the actor.s recent misses and weird marketing that didn.t totally explain how funny Tom Cruise.s latest movie is, people didn.t go out in droves to see Edge of Tomorrow in theaters. Luckily, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has rectified this situation with its Blu-ray set, which features better marketing and a slew of bonus features to entice fans.
