Johnny Depp's 'Mortdecai' moves up release date

25 September 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's some good news for Johnny Depp fans. The actor's next film, "Mortdecai," will be released two weeks earlier than initially planned. Lionsgate has announced that it will hit theaters on January 23, 2015. The move will put the film up against the Jennifer Lopez vehicle "The Boy Next Door." The studio is moving "The Age of Adaline" from January 23 to April 24, 2015. It stars Blake Lively and Harrison Ford. "Mortdecai" centers on the dashing Charlie Mortdecai (Depp), who travels the world on the trail of a stolen painting which may contain a clue to a hidden cache of Nazi gold. Based on Kyril Bonfiglioli's book series, "Mortdecai" was directed by David Koepp ("Premium Rush"). He and Depp previously teamed on 2004's "Secret Window." "Mortdecai" also stars Aubrey Plaza, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, and Olivia Munn. Depp was recently seen in "Transcendence," and will next appear in the musical "Into the Woods. »

Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai gets early release date

25 September 2014 5:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Johnny Depp’s upcoming crime-comedy flick about a hapless art dealer was supposed to be released on February 6th but Lionsgate have now reportedly moved the film forward two weeks meaning it will now hit the big screen on January 23rd.  Mortdecai will now avoid a head-to-head battle with the Wachowski’s futuristic Jupiter Ascending starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis and will instead duke it out with The Boy Next Door starring Jennifer Lopez as a recently divorced woman who begins an affair with a younger man.

It seems like a fairly sound strategic move from Lionsgate considering the Wachowski’s have a decent following (despite their recent poor efforts) and Lopez hasn’t exactly attracted the masses as of late. It will also avoid the fantasy adventure epic Seventh Son starring Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges and Kit Harrington, which is likely to do decent box-office numbers.

See What It's Like to Bike Through New York City at High Speeds (Video)

18 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The Joseph Gordon-Levitt film Premium Rush offered moviegoers a small glimpse of what life is like for the thousands of people biking through New York City each day, albeit a highly dramatized glimpse. This video, while featuring little smuggling, crime, or special effects, offers a similar look at the world of urban biking. Uploaded by Andrew Betsch, it shows a journey from midtown Manhattan to Brooklyn on Sept. 4. Betsch's route takes him down 9th Avenue, through the West Village and SoHo via Bleecker Street, through the Lower East Side down Delancey, and then across the Williamsburg Bridge into Brooklyn.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

Hanks and Howard Back Together for Dan Brown's 'Inferno'

27 August 2014 11:58 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was confirmed last night by Deadline that Tom Hanks and Ron Howard are bringing back Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon for a third time after The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons as Inferno, based on the Dan Brown novel, will head into production in April 2015. Worldwide the first two films brought in $1.24 billion worldwide with only 28% of that total coming from the domestic box office, which is to say this has a big overseas following despite the fact reviews for the first two movies were never stellar. As for this next installment, which skips over The Lost Symbol when it comes to the chronological release of the books' publication dates, here's the synopsis: In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon (Hanks), is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces... Dante's Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For movie review: meaner streets

20 August 2014 6:01 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An unnecessary sequel that’s empty and arduous, little more than vignettes on vengeance and cruel parades of sociopathic power performed as gleefully ultraviolent shadowplays. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): didn’t see a need for a second

I have not read the source material

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

There’s the nihilism of Sin City. A place where wounded men have to remind themselves to “never let the monster out,” and a woman can “makes slaves of men,” and even “good men” are turned on by a woman’s tale of rape (which she invented, of course, because this is Sin City, where you can’t trust a dame). A place where men are nothing but how they can use their rage and women are nothing but how they can use their bodies.

And that’s none of it nice. »

‘Mortdecai’ Trailer: Johnny Depp Will Grow On You

12 August 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

The character Charles Mortdecai was created by the late author Kyril Bonfiglioli, and is the latest eccentric protagonist to be brought to life onscreen by Johnny Depp, in the upcoming film Mortdecai. A teaser trailer has been released for the film, ahead of its theatrical debut in early 2015 – and while the footage does include brief appearances from a number of notable supporting cast members, this clip is foremost Depp’s show.

Judging by the movie’s first preview, Depp’s performance can be best summarized as part Depp getting up to his usual oddball antics, part Peter SellersInspector Clouseau – going by how Mortdecai’s obliviousness and general stupidity often results in some kind of physical comedy gag or slapstick ensuing. Indeed, Mortedecai director David Koepp (Premium Rush) appears to have, in essence, made a modern-day Pink Panther movie under a different name (and with ...

Johnny Depp Doesn't Need Help with His Bags in 'Mortdecai' Trailer

12 August 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Bit of a moron actually." If the perpetually drunk antics of Captain Jack Sparrow just aren't doing it for you anymore, than maybe the bumbling, foolishness of art dealer and rogue Charlie Mortdecai will get the job done. Johnny Depp takes the title role in Mortdecai, the adventure comedy from Premium Rush director David Koepp. The first teaser trailer has just arrived and it basically introduces us to the main character from Kyril Bonfiglioli's anthology book series. Mortdecai seems to have a bit of a reputation, and it's not a very good one. Do audiences want another weird, trademark Depp character in action? Watch! Here's the first trailer for David Koepp's Mortdecai, originally from Apple: Mortdecai is directed by David Koepp (Premium Rush, The Secret Window) and written by Eric Aronson, based on the anthology by Kyril Bonfiglioli. Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, »

Johnny Depp Is A Mustachioed Big Spender In First Mortdecai Trailer

12 August 2014 9:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Out of all the actors working today, perhaps none are more skilled at diving into larger-than-life personalities than Johnny Depp. Over the past few years, he’s played a swaggering pirate, an upper-class vampire, the Mad Hatter and a fierce Native American badass, among other nutty creations. And in next spring’s Mortdecai, he’ll be adding “debonair art dealer” to that lineup of delightfully outsized characters.

The first trailer for the film has landed today, putting the focus squarely on Depp’s mutachioed protagonist, who resembles a slick cross between Ralph Fiennes’ Gustave H. in The Grand Budapest Hotel and Steve Martin’s Inspector Clouseau in The Pink Panther. It’s a little hard to tell whether Mortdecai is more of a bumbling fool or a smooth operator from this early look, but the film looks to blend action and comedy elements. There’s not much by way of plot here, »

The Trailer For Johnny Depp's Mortdecai Romps In

11 August 2014 6:26 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Based on the beloved novels by Kyril Bonfiglioli - namely Don't Point That Thing At Me, After You With A Pistol, Something Nasty In The Woodshed and The Great Moustache Mystery - Johnny Depp's Mortdecai is a right royal romp of the highest order, with Depp playing an anarchic aristocratic art dealer named Charlie Mortdecai, and Paul Bettany his valet, Jock. Think Jeeves and Wooster, but with more sex, swearing and guns, and you've just about got the new trailer for Mortdecai.  brightcove.createExperiences();As you may have spotted from that very brief teaser, the quality of the books (and the characters, and Johnny Depp's moustache) has attracted some pretty starry stars in the shape of Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Goldblum, Olivia Munn and Ewan McGregor. The director is David Koepp, whose most recent writing credits include Men In Black 3, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and Premium Rush (which »

10 best cycling movies: Breaking Away, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure

20 July 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The cycling movie is an expansive genre, covering everything from sports documentaries like the recent Pantani: The Accidental Death of a Cyclist to quirky comedies such as Pee-Wee's Big Adventure and fondly remembered children's adventure movies, like the oh-so-1980s BMX Bandits.

Cycling as a professional sport is also well represented on screen, whether it's the Indiana University Little 500 race in classic comedy-drama Breaking Away, an animated Tour de France in Belleville Rendez-vous or the Paris–Roubaix in Jørgen Leth's stunning documentary A Sunday in Hell.

With the Tour de France about to enter its final week, Digital Spy takes a look at the ten best cycling movies.

1) Breaking Away (1979)

Peter Yates' wonderful small town comedy-drama won an Oscar for Best Screenplay and was nominated for four more, including Best Picture. Dennis Christopher stars as Dave Stoller, an Indiana teenager obsessed with the Italian cycling team, who gets »

Intramural (2014) Movie Review

21 June 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Every subculture, niche market, and fringe topic, no matter how minor and specific, will eventually get its own movie. This is something I firmly believe. Bike messengers have “Premium Rush,” food trucks recently got “Chef,” and then there is dodgeball, ping-pong, paintball, and damn near everything else you can imagine. Personally, I’m waiting for a movie about an over-30 co-ed kickball team, and considering that Andrew Disney’s “Intramural” takes on the no-stakes world of college recreational flag football, we’re not too far off. Despite a ridiculous premise, as well as some shortcomings typically associated with low-budget movies, “Intramural” is a goddamn blast. To compare it to the Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn joint “Dodgeball” is not any kind of stretch because they’re basically the exact same movie. No joke, there’s even a crotchety coach in a wheelchair. It’s all supposed to poke fun at all the clichés of sports movies, »

Johnny Depp’s Mustache Is The Real Star In New Image From Mortdecai

8 May 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Johnny Depp was once labeled the greatest actor of his generation and, like many greatest actors of their generations, he’s gone through a bit of a rough patch, role-wise. Where he was once known for his versatility and indie choices, he’s now become a caricature of his former self, appearing in too many Disney movies and blase thrillers where he basically plays the same quirky character over and over again. Maybe this will all change with the upcoming comic thriller Mortdecai,  in which Depp plays a charming international spy/terrorist/art dealer/all around rogue who also sports one remarkable mustache.

The plot of Mortdecai seems like a good one: Depp is Charlie Mortdecai, the aforementioned rogue, who races to recover a stolen painting that supposedly contains a code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold. The film is based on the book trilogy by Kyril Bonfiglioli, »

Johnny Depp Gets Blonde Hair & Hipster Mustache in 'Mortdecai'

8 May 2014 1:51 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Well, the techno-thriller Transcendence may not have worked out all that well for Johnny Depp last month, but fans of the actor needn't worry, because 2015 will put Depp back on the weird side again. Mortdecai is an adaptation Kyril Bonfiglioli's The Great Mortdecai Moustache Mystery, the author's final novel which remained unfinished until satirist and parodist Craig Brown completed it. In the film, Depp plays the title character, an art dealer setting off from adventure to misadventure via Jersey and Moscow to a final showdown in a Buckinghamshire bungalow of unparalleled hideousness. Sounds pretty wild. And now we have a first look at a blonde, mustachioed Depp in the film, looking like a dashing hipster. Look! Here's our first look at David Koepp's Mortdecai from Lionsgate (via The Playlist): Mortdecai is directed by David Koepp (Premium Rush, The Secret Window) and written by Eric Aronson, based on the anthology by Kyril Bonfiglioli. »
