The Ting Tings heading to 'Nowheresville' with second album

15 December 2011 4:33 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

British pop-rock duo The Ting Tings scored two major hits with the ubiquitous singles "That's Not My Name" and "Shut Up and Let Me Go", both off their freshman LP "We Started Nothing" and both of which - while catchy enough on the first few listens - were also quickly played out thanks to being featured in a slew of TV shows, movies ("Name" most recently in this year's "Horrible Bosses" ) and advertisements. Unfortunately for the band, which is made up of Katie White and Jules de Martino, "Silence" and "Hang It Up" - the first two singles off their just-announced second »

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 Gets Two Directors

15 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

This past summer, we reported to you that the sequel to Sony Pictures Animation, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs would employ Horrible Bosses writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. The story for the sequel in fact not follow Ron and Judi Barrett’s follow-up children’s book, Pickles to Pittsburgh. Instead, this film is to be “based on an original idea.”

According to Variety, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 will be directed by a team of Sony Animation’s own artists, Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, both of which had worked on the first film. Cameron was a story artist and Pearn was head of story. Phil Lord and Chris Miller who directed the original, will be executive producing.

Meatballs 2 has not officially received a greenlight yet but they have veteran Sony Animation producer Kirk Bodyfelt working on this project’s development.

Kristen Wiig, Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Julia Roberts?: Golden Globe Contenders Best Actress Drama/Comedy

15 December 2011 12:51 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Kristen Wiig, Bridesmaids

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jean Dujardin, George Clooney, Johnny Depp?: Golden Globes 2012 Best Actor Drama/Comedy Contenders

The Best Actress – Drama list seems complete, though there are several possible runners-up: Meryl Streep for The Iron Lady, Glenn Close for Albert Nobbs, Viola Davis for The Help, Tilda Swinton for We Need to Talk About Kevin, and Michelle Williams for My Week with Marilyn. That matches our SAG predictions last night — and the SAG nominations themselves earlier this morning. Those are also the likely Best Actress Oscar contenders.

The possible upsets are Rooney Mara for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Emma Stone for The Help, and Sandra Bullock for Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Kirsten Dunst is a runner-up runner-up for Lars von Trier's Melancholia. Due to her lesser star wattage, an even less likely contender is Elizabeth Olsen for Martha Marcy May Marlene. Like Crazy's »

Rachel McAdams Joins Noomi Rapace in Brian De Palma's 'Passion'

14 December 2011 9:05 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been nearly a year since we've heard anything about the remake of the French drama Crime d'Amour (or Love Game) from director Brian De Palma. Titled Passion, the film finally seems to be making progress with Thompson on Hollywood reporting Rachel McAdams will join her Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows co-star Noomi Rapace in the remake of the film from Alain Corneau and starring Kristen Scott Thomas and European actor Ludivine Sagnier as two feuding corporate executives. Things take a dark turn when the older executive takes revenge on her protege. However, De Palma's version makes a slight change. This new version of the 2011 film will see a younger woman who turns to murder when her boss steals one of her big ideas. In its simplest form, it sounds like Horrible Bosses but without the comedy. However, knowing De Palma's body of work, this will be something much »

Sony Sets Co-Directors For Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2

14 December 2011 9:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Way back in April last year, a sequel to 2009’s Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs was announced, coming just a few months after the first film’s substantial success, turning Sony’s $100m. budget into just under $250m. at the box office, an incredibly impressive feat for the relatively new directing pair of Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Variety are reporting that Sony are once again turning to a relatively unknown duo to direct the sequel, in the form of Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, two Sony Animation artists who will be making their major debut with Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2.

Whilst I admit that I’m still yet to see the original, it looked brilliant when it came out two years ago, and had a lot of terrific talent lending their voices for the film, headed up by Bill Hader and Anna Faris, with Nil Patrick Harris, »

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 Lands A Pair Of Directors

14 December 2011 1:46 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The 2009 animated film Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs was the definition of a surprise hit. While nobody really expected anything from it, it turned out to be well liked by critics and pull in nearly $250 million at the international box office. There's been talk of a sequel for some time now, with the writers of Horrible Bosses hired to pen the script this past summer, but the directors chair has been left empty as Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the filmmakers behind the first film, have signed on for projects like Bob The Musical and the Lego movie. So who will replace them? Today we have our answer. Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn to direct Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2, according to Variety. While both Cameron and Pearn worked on the first movie, as story artist and head of story, respectively, the sequel will be their first mainstream »

‘Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2’ Finds Its Directors

13 December 2011 5:08 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Some four months after Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein landed the writing jobs, Variety reports that Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn will direct Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 for Sony Animation. Despite the film not actually having a greenlight as of this writing, the behind-the-scenes action is propulsive enough to get helmers signed; I’ll take it as a good sign.

Neither are strangers to this franchise: Cameron did some voices for the 2009 original, while Pearn was credited as head of story. The former of the duo has some furhter animation experience behind him as well, having directed last year’s Open Season 3. None of those qualifications lower or raise my hopes for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 — since I don’t have any to begin with — but it’s interesting to think that Sony also hired unknowns for the original, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. »

Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn Set to Direct Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2

13 December 2011 2:56 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Sony Animation has settled on the directors of their follow-up to 2009’s swell animated feature Cloud with a Chance of Meatballs. Variety reports that animation artists Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn will be taking the helm on the sequel. Last we heard, the original film’s directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were attached to return for Cloudy 2, but it now appears that they won’t be back. Lord and Miller are currently busy with post-production on their live-action debut 21 Jump Street (which looks great), and the recent greenlight for the Lego feature film that they’re attached to may have something to do with their non-involvement with the Cloudy sequel. Hit the jump for more, including the story status of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Cameron and Pearn aren't 100% fresh-faced, as they both worked on the first film: Pearn was head of story while Cameron worked as a story artist. »

13 December 2011 9:15 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Nominations have just been released this morning for this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards, and some common trends in award ceremonies we have already seen continue in this set of nominees.

Along with the normal categories (acting, directing, writing), the Critics’ Choice Awards is one of the first to have a full list of categories, like art direction, makeup, costume, visual effects, score, and song.

Escapism, invasion, sequels and resentment: the cinema trends of 2011

13 December 2011 7:47 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What do this year’s most successful Hollywood films say about our changing tastes, and how do they compare to previous years? Ryan finds out…

At first glance, a look at this year’s ten highest grossing movies reveals nothing more than the usual diet of sequels and effects-filled blockbusters. The final Harry Potter movie made more than $1.3bn. Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides made more than $1bn, in spite of middling reviews. The rest of the year’s hits were largely dominated by computer-animated movies for the family crowd: Kung Fu Panda 2, The Smurfs, Cars 2 and Rio all made the top ten.

Look a little more closely, though, and you’ll see that this year’s hit films reveal numerous common themes, and tell us a great deal about movie-going appetites and contemporary fears…

The Broadcast Film Critics Association (an organization I belong to) announced the nominees for the 17th Annual Critics Choice Awards this morning and Martin Scorsese's Hugo and Michel Hazanavicius' The Artist each received a massive 11 nominations with both films receiving nominations for Best Picture, Actor, Director, Screenplay, Cinematography, Art Direction, Editing, Costume Design and Score. Looking over the list I can't say there are many surprises though I am sure there are many that will be happy to see Andy Serkis with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rise of the Planet of the Apes and it's interesting to see neither Glenn Close or Janet McTeer were nominated for Albert Nobbs.
