Wildlike – The Review

23 September 2015 3:27 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

She is a tiny little woman, a girl really, her eyes big and scared, she chews nervously on her sleeves, she looks at everyone with suspicion and maybe a bit of hope. She wears way too much eye makeup and her nail polish is always chipped and fading. She looks lost and alone in a waiting area of what may be a train station, airport or bus station. It is a waiting area for a ferry to Juneau, Alaska.

Her Mother is ill and Father deceased. Mother will be entering a hospital in Seattle, Washington, where they live, Mother can’t take care of her anymore. She is being sent to Juneau to stay with an Uncle, (known only as Uncle, played by Brian Geraghty). This is MacKenzie, the fragile but resourceful heroine of Wildlike.

At first her Uncle seems to have been sent from Heaven.  She gets her own room in a nice home, »

Rumor: Kathryn Bigelow Headlines Director's Shortlist For Tomb Raider Reboot

19 September 2015 | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Take this news with a huge grain of salt, but The Tracking Board is reporting that Warner Bros. has narrowed down the list of potential directors for its upcoming Tomb Raider reboot to three. Those three rumored finalists are Academy Award-winner Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), and Mimi Leder (Deep Impact).   The reportedly fast-tracked reboot, a co-production between WB, MGM, Gk Films, and Eidos Interactive, is said to follow a younger version of Lara Croft as she heads out on her first treasure-hunting adventure.  Bigelow would be a huge get for the film, but with her award-winning pedigree, it's a little hard to see her taking on this project, which revives the long-dormant video game-to-film franchise that previously starred Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie (Maleficent) as the titular heroine. Leder and Hardwicke also have major big-budget films on their resumes, but it's still a little hard to picture »

What happened to the cast of Hackers? Angelina Jolie's '90s cyber classic turns 20

14 September 2015 4:01 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Blazing a trail in 1995, Hackers tackled web culture on screen before the internet really took off. The cyber-thriller helped kick-start the career of a major Hollywood A-lister and swiftly became a cult classic thanks to its Hacker Manifesto.

As Hackers celebrates its 20th birthday today (September 15), here's what happened to the six stars who made up the cyber-punk crew.

Angelina Jolie

Hackers handle: Acid Burn

In 1995, Jolie was a fast-rising 20-year-old actress with Cyborg 2 and some big music videos (including Meat Loaf, Lenny Kravitz and The Lemonheads) on her CV. New York Times critic Janet Maslin was non too plussed about Jolie's performance, saying of her character: "Kate stands out. That's because she scowls even more sourly than [her co-stars] and is that rare female hacker who sits intently at her keyboard in a see-through top."

Now, the 40-year-old is an Oscar-winning superstar with humanitarian work spanning more than a decade and »

James Newton Howard’s Pawn Sacrifice Score To Be Released On Sept. 11

2 September 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Coming to theaters in two weeks is director Ed Zwick’s riveting Pawn Sacrifice.

It’s the story of Bobby Fischer, America’s foremost chess player, who faced the reigning champion, Boris Spassky of Russia, in a series of matches that held the world spellbound.

For fans of 1972’s “Match of the Century,” the film is everything you’re hoping for. Zwick’s movie is flawless right down to the re-enactment of the 1971 interview with Dick Cavett.

Bobby Fischer first makes waves in the elite world of chess as a 6-year-old whiz-kid from Brooklyn famous for his laser-like concentration and ability to dominate all challengers. By his teens, the boy wonder has gone from chess savant to international grandmaster, but his meteoric rise is punctuated by unpredictable personal behavior and escalating demands that raise hackles in the conservative chess establishment.

Ready Player One casting shortlist revealed

Elle Fanning, Lola Kirke and Olivia Cooke lead the shortlist for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One cast...

As was revealed earlier this year, Steven Spielberg is set to direct the movie adaptation of Ernest Cline's ultra-nerdy book, Ready Player One. If you've not had the pleasure of the book, and it's well worth seeking out, it's a future sci-fi tale, where knowledge of 80s videogames comes in really rather useful. We'll spoil things if we tell you much more than that.

Of the main roles needing to be cast in the film, we've not yet heard word of who's in the running to play Wade Watts. But The Wrap has the casting shortlist for the part of Art3mis. Five names are said to be on it, although only three have been uncovered so far.

Those three? Maleficent's Elle Fanning, Gone Girl's Lola Kirke, and Me And Earl And The Dying Girl »

‘War Room’ Success Defies Critics, Who Seem to Have It in for Faith-Based Movies

30 August 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

War Room,” the low-budget movie about the power of prayer that broke out at the box office this weekend, is the latest example of audiences making a hit out of a film that the critics panned. It’s not unusual for critics and audiences to be divided, particularly in the summer, since superhero and action films aren’t necessarily intended to be high art, simply crowd-pleasers. Last year, Michael Bay‘s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” Angelina Jolie‘s “Maleficent” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” all were beaten up by critics but went on to box-office success. But rarely is the divide between critics and the. »

Cinderella: Disney's fairytale is stuck in the dark ages

22 August 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This modern retelling definitely looks like a 2015 blockbuster but it peddles some uncomfortably old-fashioned values

Disney traditionalists are sure to find comfort in Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella as it glides on to home video this week, because unlike the majority of recent efforts to revive the studio’s flagship fairytales, this new spin on the glass-slippered classic makes few concessions to contemporary life. Indeed, the film plays out almost exactly as Walt himself might have envisioned, eschewing the metatextual postmodernism of last year’s Sleeping Beauty reboot Maleficent and the general batshittery of Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland.

Still, tradition has a short memory, so while the most influential version of the Cinderella story is probably the 1697 text by Charles Perrault, this new telling owes more to Disney’s own 1950 animated adaptation. Handily, this allows the studio to credit the story both to Perrault and “Disney’s Cinderella »
