Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Low key debut for Deadline Gallipoli

19 April 2015 5:43 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Sam Worthington in Deadline Gallipoli.

.

Despite massive promotion and widespread critical acclaim, the premiere of Deadline Gallipoli didn.t draw a big audience on Foxtel but the figures for the full week will be a far more accurate measurement.

The 8.30 pm Sunday screening on showcase had 71,000 viewers in the five metropolitan capitals, according to OzTam.

The WW1 drama produced by Matchbox Pictures and Sam Worthington and John Schwarz.s Full Clip ranked just outside the top 20 shows on pay-tv, behind multiple episodes of The Simpsons.

However the producers and Foxtel rate the opening as a solid number and are confident the overall figures will build through the week with time-shifting and catch--up viewing.

.Deadline Gallipoli is one of the finest drama series that Australia has ever produced," Matchbox Pictures MD Chris Oliver-Taylor tells If. "It showcases a defining moment in Australia.s modern history.

Why Does Michael Douglas Want to Kill This Poor, Shirtless Hunk?

16 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In his new movie Beyond the Reach, Michael Douglas plays a high-powered businessman who drags a hot, innocent twink young tour guide into the Mojave Desert to help him hunt big game. Alas, the excursion takes a wrong turn when Douglas aims for an animal and ends up killing another human; the only witness to the crime is that poor twink, and now he's the hunted one, running across the desert as Douglas follows in hot pursuit (as you'll see in this exclusive clip from the movie). The upside? At least Douglas makes the kid take off all his clothes before the chase commences. Yes, that's supposed to slow him down by exposing him to the scalding-hot desert sun, but when the tour guide is played by the awfully gorgeous Jeremy Irvine (best known for Steven Spielberg's War Horse), we doubt that any audience members will protest his movie-spanning shirtlessness. »

Roland Emmerich's 'Stonewall' is arriving just in time for awards season

25 March 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Roland Emmerich is entering the awards season fray once more.  The filmmaker behind such blockbusters as "The Day After Tomorrow" and "Independence Day" attempted to make a smaller, more serious film with 2011's "Anonymous."  That Shakespearean era tale was touted as a possible awards player before it debuted at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival to mostly negative reviews.  Any hopes for prestige recognition were quickly dashed. Now, after segueing into more familiar territory with "White House Down," Emmerich is returning with a slightly more personal tale, "Stonewall." Roadside Attractions announced today it had acquired the period drama for a release later this Fall (which pretty much means at least a Toronto debut).  "Stonewall" is a fictional drama set around the real events that took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York City during 1969.  The Stonewall Riots found the gay community fighting back in a series of violent protests after »

9 actors who have left Downton Abbey for better... or worse

5 March 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

For many actors, Downton Abbey was their first big break in television.

But not everyone can be a Lord Grantham or a Carson. For many - whether they chose to leave or were written out - their fortunes changed after exiting the ITV drama.

So after the news that Dan Stevens has joined Beauty and the Beast, Digital Spy looks at the careers (so far!) of 9 actors who have bowed out of Highclere Castle...

1. Ed Speleers

After starring in series three, four and five of Downton, Ed Speleers left Jimmy Kent behind for another role in a big budget British TV drama.

We most recently saw him in the part of Edward Seymour in Wolf Hall, and he will also star in upcoming films Remainder and Howl. Most prominently, he's been cast alongside Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter in Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass.

Production Starts On Starz & BBC Co-Production ‘The Dresser’

3 March 2015 8:20 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Ian McKellan and Anthony Hopkins have a new effort for Starz and BBC, and The Dresser is now in production.

The made-for-television film based on the famous play is loaded with stars, and is going to be one of the most interesting efforts to come along in quite some time. At least, if the cast itself can be taken as grounds for extremely high hopes. McKellan and Hopkins are perfect for the roles, and the story has proven itself, not only as a great story, but one that holds up over time.

Get all the details below, and make sure you watch out for this one.

 

Starz, in partnership with the BBC, today announced that production has officially begun on the movie for television “The Dresser,” an adaptation of Ronald Harwood’s play, to be directed by Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal, Iris). The production will film in and around London. »

Watch: Shot by Shot Scene Breakdowns of Steven Spielberg's 'Jaws'

10 February 2015 8:55 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I feel there has been a strong shift to an anti-Steven Spielberg mentality over the past couple of years. Yes, he has put out some not A+ material recently, with The Adventures of Tintin and War Horse, but that does not take away the man has made some truly outstanding films and is a master of his craft. Arguably, his best film, or at least the best showcase of the man's visual technique, is 1975's Jaws. It is packed with tension, excitement, and terrific performances. I rewatched the film not too long ago, and it holds up immensely well, because Spielberg knows how to put together a scene. That is what the following video essay is about. Antonios Papantoniou has taken it upon himself to do a shot by shot breakdown of nine scenes from Jaws, showing Spielberg's methods of crafting the most dynamic scene. It is a thirty-minute watch, »

Michael Douglas In On The Hunt In First Trailer For Beyond The Reach

5 February 2015 1:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been a while since Michael Douglas turned in a performance to rival that of his greatest character, Wall Street‘s Gordon Gekko. In the last decade, the once-solid actor has steered clear of sharp, probing movies and invested in more palatable fare such as And So It Goes and Last Vegas. That period of safe moves appears to over – for a brief time, anyway – judging by this first trailer for his next effort, Beyond The Reach.

The film made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and since then it seems to have hidden from public view. Until today that is, as Yahoo! Movies has dropped the first preview, which strikes a chord somewhere between thriller and survival horror.

In the lead role, Douglas plays a ruthless businessman who ventures out into the Mojave Desert for an exclusive hunting excursion. All goes as one would expect. »

Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper”: the highest grossing war film of all time

2 February 2015 9:51 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Right before last weekend began, something truly unexpected happened. Yes, Clint Eastwood’s controversial but hugely popular and profitable war film American Sniper passed Steven Spielberg’s classic Saving Private Ryan to become the number one movie of its ilk of all time at the box office. In short, not only is it the top grossing film about the post 9/11 terrorism related wars, which have been iffy at the box office to date, it’s surpassed all the films about World War II and every other conflict as well, taking in an estimated $249 million, as of today (it also just had the second biggest Super Bowl weekend take ever). Just a month or so ago, no one would have ever dreamed about this. If you’re looking for the main reason why American Sniper is a dark horse in all of its Oscar categories, this is why. Money can talk. »

41 A-List Actors Who Bombed as Hard as Johnny Depp in ‘Mortdecai’

28 January 2015 7:04 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

The 51-year-old film star and his co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor and Olivia Munn are in fact in very good company.

'Strange Magic' Director Gary Rydstrom Talks About His Failed Pixar Movie

23 January 2015 3:36 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

You might not know who Gary Rydstrom is, but you've certainly heard him before. This is a man whose pioneering sound work has won him seven (!) Academy Awards and brought to life groundbreaking technological advancements like the first film presented in DTS sound ("Jurassic Park") and re-crafting sound mixes in 5.1 surround (after his breakthrough work on "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," he and James Cameron created a new multi-channel mix for the original "Terminator"). He's also directed a pair of Pixar short films ("Lifted" and "Hawaiian Vacation") and overseen the English language dubs of four Studio Ghibli movies ("Tales from Earthsea," "From Up on Poppy Hill," "Arrietty," and last year's Oscar-nominated masterpiece "The Wind Rises"). In short: he's kind of the coolest dude around.

And this weekend he adds another accomplishment to his already unfathomably long list, when his debut feature film "Strange Magic" debuts in theaters nationwide. This bizarre, George Lucas-produced animated fairy tale, »
