‘Bunker77’ Exclusive Clip: The Story of the Boundary-Pushing, Controversial Surf Star Bunker Spreckels, Stepson to Clark Gable

16 November 2016 2:14 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the past six days, Doc NYC has screened numerous documentaries that shine a light on untold stories, marginalized figures and crucial history. Tomorrow, the festival comes to an end, but before it closes, the festival will screen Takuji Masuda’s new film “Bunker77,” the true story of Bunker Spreckels, Clark Gable’s stepson and heir to a sugar fortune, who lived fast and died young. A classic American rebel in the vein of James Dean and Andy Warhol, Bunker turned his back on his fortune to live a simple life out of the public eye. He pushed surfing’s boundaries by riding very short boards in Hawaii and the Jeffrey Bay in South Africa. He also mentored skateboard legend Tony Alva and collaborated with filmmaker Kenneth Anger, leaving behind a complicated, nuanced legacy. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Movie Review: The lazy Life On The Line places John Travolta back on the grid

15 November 2016 10:00 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

On a broad scale, the producers of mostly VOD releases like Life On The Line don’t have much to answer for, because their movies don’t often add up to much beyond a way for aging and/or cash-strapped movie stars to extend their leading-man (or lady, but usually man) years a little longer. But these indulgences, while essentially harmless, do their part to chip away at better movies. An older star like John Travolta (or Bruce Willis, or Wesley Snipes, or any number of others) should be well into the character actor portion of his career about now, and Travolta briefly seemed to be heading in that direction back in 2012 when he took a supporting role in Oliver Stone’s Savages. It hasn’t really taken, in part because he’s been lured into a series of thrillers seemingly designed to simulate his glory years from inside »

Fox, Ridley Scott Developing Don Winslow’s NYPD Crime Thriller

19 September 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has bought the movie rights to an untitled crime thriller by novelist Don Winslow and set it up with Ridley Scott to produce through his Fox-based Scott Free company.

Fox’s sister company HarperCollins Publishers’ imprint William Morrow will release the new novel in June, which centers on a corrupt sergeant at the NYPD’s most elite crime-fighting unit who must choose between his family, his partners and his life. Michael Schaefer and Shane Salerno are producing with Scott.

The pre-emptive deal comes a year after the studio and Scott launched development of Winslow’s bestseller “The Cartel,” which  centers on two former friends whose paths diverged when one went to work for the Drug Enforcement Agency and the other joined the Sonora drug cartel. The book covers the decade between 2004 and 2014 and is a follow-up to his 2006 novel “The Power of the Dog.”

Steve Asbell will oversee the new project for the studio. »

All 20 of Oliver Stone’s Movies Ranked: From ‘Savages’ to ‘Born on the Fourth of July’ (Photos)

15 September 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Oliver Stone Films, Ranked – Love him or hate him, writer-director-provocateur Oliver Stone has been going strong for over four decades. With “Snowden” out in theaters, here’s a chance to get reacquaint yourself with his varied filmography (save for documentaries), from worst to best. 20. “Savages” (2012) The most joyful moment of watching movies in 2012 came in the form of one word, delivered by Blake Lively: “war-gasm.” That term describes the type of orgasms soldiers have upon coming home from war. When it comes to “Savages,” that’s essentially all you need to know. For Stone, it’s a peculiarly inept crime drama: humorless, »

Weekend Box Office Preview: ‘Sully’ Holds, But ‘Blair Witch’ Might Take Off

15 September 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Blair Witch” (Lionsgate), the second sequel to the groundbreaking 1999 low-budget horror smash, looks to have the best chance to top Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” (Warner Bros.) for #1 this weekend. “Sully” has the edge against an eclectic slate of familiar follow-ups to prior hits.

With “Sully” included, the weekend showcases three Oscar-winning directors —Clint Eastwood, Oliver Stone (“Snowden,” Open Road) and Ron Howard (limited release “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week,” Abramorama)—plus “Bridget Jones’s Baby” (Universal), starring Oscar-winner Renee Zellweger, taking a third pass on her best-known role.

The weekend could be hard-pressed to equal its equivalent last year, when “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials” and “Black Mass” combined open to $53 million, well ahead of what this weekend promises. But “Sully” might push the Top Ten weekend total close to 2015’s $93 million.

That would keep pace with the 5% year to date uptick still in play. But this week’s »

Snowden review: Oliver Stone turns true thrills into dated Hollywood fodder

10 September 2016 12:47 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The director’s dramatic retelling of the Nsa whistleblower’s rise to infamy boasts a strong central performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt but its attempts to pander to a multiplex crowd are misjudged

Once the Oscar-winning, critic-baiting enfant terrible of Hollywood, Oliver Stone’s position in the industry has gone from illuminating grandmaster to embarrassing grandfather with a string of curiously ill-advised disasters. Alexander, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Savages are the works of a director depressingly out of touch and uncomfortable with his landscape, far from the zeitgeisty provocateur he used to be.

Colonel Quaritch Plays a Big Role in All 4 Avatar Sequels

31 August 2016 6:40 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2013, director James Cameron made the surprising revelation that Avatar star Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Quaritch, despite seemingly dying in the original blockbuster. Since then, the filmmaker has expanded his massive franchise from three sequels to four, with Avatar 2's release pushed one full year to Christmas 2018. While these sequels appear to be constantly evolving, Stephen Lang revealed that James Cameron is still planning on bringing this character back for all four sequels.

During his interview from 2013, James Cameron wouldn't exactly say how Quaritch would be back, only teasing that this sequel is "a sci-fi story," hinting there are any number of ways he could be resurrected. The filmmaker also teased that his characters will "evolve into unexpected places" over the course of this franchise, but those statements were over three years ago. During an interview with Mashable, Stephen Lang made it clear »

21 July 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Oliver Stone hasn’t made a movie since 2012’s critical and box office disaster “Savages,” but you should never count out the Oscar-winning provocateur. This September, the filmmaker finally returns to the big screen in the same political firecracker mode that has given him some of his most blazing and timeless classics, from “Platoon” to “Nixon” and “JFK,” and this time around he’s gunning for the Nsa with the true story of Edward Snowden.

The Shallows Releases a Final Trailer

8 June 2016 7:42 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In a marketing plan that has me both really wanting to learn to surf, and stay as far away from water as I possibly can, The Shallows has released what they are calling their final trailer!

In a world where good thrillers involving Sharks can be counted on one hand, well, with one finger, Sony and Blake Lively are looking to add a new one to the long list of Jaws and nothing else. If the trailers are any indication of how exciting The Shallows will be, then we are in for a fun thrill ride.

Early Wednesday morning Sony released what they are calling their final trailer for the upcoming isolated survival drama The Shallows. The film follows a young surfer who is standard on a giant rock. In view of the shore she must find a way to outsmart a great white that stalks her, waiting for his own chance to attack. »
