Warner Bros. Expected to Cut as Many as 1,000 Jobs (Exclusive)

17 September 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Warner Bros. Entertainment is expected to cut as many as 900 to 1,000 jobs worldwide as part of a studio-wide cost-cutting move, according to people familiar with the company’s plans. The estimated reductions would amount to more than 10% of the studio’s 9,000-person workforce.

The cuts will be made in late October or early November.

Senior managers are currently assessing their businesses to come up with ways to trim overhead. Only at the end of that process will an exact reduction figure be known. It could be somewhat lower than the current numbers being speculated, but cuts are expected to be substantial.

“There is no head count target or percentage reduction target,” said Dee Dee Myers, Warner Bros.’ new executive vice president of corporate communications. “This is a budget issue, not a head count issue,” she added.

Imax CEO Says Audiences Are "A Little Sick Of The Post-Apocalyptic, Dark, Angst-Ridden, Suicidal Movies"

17 September 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Hazarding his opinion on studio trends of which audiences may have grown weary, Imax Entertainment CEO Greg Foster told those assembled at the Bank of America 2014 Media, Communications and Entertainment Conference that, “Maybe people are getting a little sick of the post-apocalyptic, dark, angst-ridden, suicidal movies.” Now, here’s a guy whose business partly depends on the studios’ success, but who doesn’t spend his days interpreting audience analytics and agonizing over what to feed us next. And maybe that distance from the problem enables him to see things more clearly. Between 2013 and 2014, we got “Elysium,” “Oblivion,” “After Earth,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Snowpiercer,” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” In less post-apocalyptic, more dystopian future Ya fare, we got “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Ender’s Game,” “Divergent,” “The Giver,” and, along similar lines, “The Purge” and “The Purge: Anarchy.” There’s obviously something in those audience analytics telling. »

Watch! Here's some cool B-roll footage from the set of Edge of Tomorrow (via SlashFilm): Edge of Tomorrow is set in the distant future during war between a race of aliens called Mimics and the human race. »

Behind The Scenes Clip From Edge Of Tomorrow Showcases Some Fantastic Practical Effects

16 September 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the surface, it may have seemed as though Edge of Tomorrow, Doug Liman’s under-seen cerebral sci-fi from earlier this year, leaned heavily on CGI to bring its time travelling tale to life. However, in this recently-released clip the creative team reveal just how much work went into the film’s practical effects.

Here’s the five-minute video, courtesy of io9:

From the extensive battle sequences to the mechanised power suits, it turns out that a major chunk of Edge of Tomorrow was hand-crafted. Which is refreshing, given that a lot of similar genre pieces would so easily turn to CG effects in lieu of this more realistic approach — we’re looking at you, Oblivion.

Released back in May, Edge of Tomorrow orbits around Tom Cruise’s Major William Cage who repeatedly dies on the battlefield only to wake up at Heathrow airport earlier that morning — think Groundhog Day meets Source Code. »

Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon are, er, Bourne Again

16 September 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Matt Damon may be known for a lot of things, but let’s face it, the “Bourne” films are his most profitable by a long stretch. Three films in, and that franchise has grossed what, over a few bazillion dollars? Or thereabouts. So it’s no surprise Universal is really hot to get Damon back in the CIA-themed series, and according to Deadline, it’s going to happen. The site says the studio has now “begun making deals” with not just Damon to return for a fourth Bourne film, but with director Paul Greengrass as well. Greengrass and Damon teamed up for two of the four Bourne movies — the second and third one. Most people probably forget that Greengrass didn’t also direct the first. That was “Edge of Tomorrow’s” Doug Liman. And the fourth movie, of course, was Damon-less, though his character Jason Bourne did get plenty of mentions. »

Votd: The Awesome Practical Effects of ‘Edge of Tomorrow’

16 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We’re accustomed to thinking that any given sci-fi film is going to be mostly CG, perhaps thanks to the legacy left by the Star Wars prequels and many films that followed. But some still use a great deal of practical makeup and effects work. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy is one good example. The […]

The Best Movies of 2014 So Far

16 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We're about to head into Oscar movie season, and with eight months of movies behind us, it's time to take stock. Here are the best reviewed movies of the year so far, according to Vulture's movie critics David Edelstein and Bilge Ebiri. Big-Budget Extravagances Dawn of the Planet of the Apes “The latest Apes picture, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, is an excellent interspecies bromance between an ape and a man who’d like to live in peace but are surrounded by warmongering assholes.” Guardians of the Galaxy "Director James Gunn ... has a rare talent, one that George Lucas also had but few filmmakers working in this genre do: He can effortlessly cut between evocative worlds we’ve never seen before without losing sight of the action and the pace of his narrative."Edge of Tomorrow“The twisty, entertaining Tom Cruise vehicle Edge of Tomorrow is Groundhog Day »

The Bourne Dependancy – Why Action Franchises are a Universal Remedy

16 September 2014 3:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

News that Universal had collared Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass to reteam for another chapter in the Bourne series is not a surprise. Even while Jeremy Renner took on the series mantle in his brief time under the New Action Hero spotlight he still lived in the shadow of the duo. Now the popular spy series is set to be reborn.

Rumours spun wildly through the production of the underrated Green Zone (mis-sold as a quasi-Bourne IV thanks to a startling lack of faith from the marketing department) that another Bourne film was imminent, that Renner was a stop-gap, that there were more stories to be told. As has been pointed out this morning in the social media fallout it seemed (cinema) Jason Bourne’s story ended with the name David Webb, but Legacy proved there are many more chapters to this story. So, why were Universal so set on the reunion? »

Matt Damon And Paul Greengrass To Return To Bourne

16 September 2014 12:35 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

In a surprise move over at Universal, both director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon are both making a return to the Jason Bourne franchise that started with The Bourne Identity all of the way back in 2002. Edge Of Tomorrow helmer Doug Liman directed that movie, but Greengrass brought the following sequels The Bourne Supermacy and The Bourne Ultimatum to cinemas in the years that followed.

In 2012, ‘Ultimatum’ writer Tony Gilroy stepped into the role of director for spin-off The Bourne Legacy, which was led by newcomer to the franchise Jeremy Renner, and while a sequel to that movie was due in 2016, it now looks like that release slot may be taken by the new Greengrass movie.

While the spin-off sequel will not be released in that slot, Universal did say that a film that will continue to feature the exploits of Renner’s Aaron Cross, will still continue to be developed at the studio. »

Let’s Take 5 Minutes to Appreciate ‘Edge of Tomorrow’s Practical Effects

15 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As you all know, Edge of Tomorrow is the story of a man facing a grueling mid-life crisis who can only save himself by escaping a workday grind where every day poses the exact same set of existential irritations and wide-mouthed aliens who want to blow him into tiny bits. We’ve all been there. The movie required a lot of projectiles and explosions for Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt to run away from (or to), and this B-roll footage (via ScreenSlam) shows the pair doing their own stunts while practical fireballs blaze in the background. It’s tough to say whether Edge of Tomorrow had more practical special effects than other big action flicks (I once saw a car thrown at another car while driving near the Transformers set), but it definitely feels like it. The kind of explosions and stunts they’re pulling off without CGI are really fantastic. The »

London in disguise: 7 times the capital doubled for another location

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

London's incredibly varied architecture - encompassing Shakespearean and Victorian-era buildings, secret underground tunnels and modern skyscrapers - has seen the city double for everything from 19th century Paris in Les Misérables to outer space in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Digital Spy takes a tour of the capital to find out more…

1. Millennium Bridge, Thames Embankment

We're used to seeing tourists snapping photos and commuters walking briskly across this distinctive bridge, but on August 12 last year, onlookers stopped and gasped as a group of exotically-attired aliens ran across the suspension bridge. This was no prank or stag do, but rather a scene from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which can currently be seen taking the international box office by storm. Incredibly, the bridge was doubling for outer space, albeit with a CGI generated backdrop to hide St Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern.

2. The Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich

Tom Cruise Has Already Started Filming 'Mission: Impossible 5' (Photo)

12 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It seems appropriate that spy actioner "Mission: Impossible 5" started filming on the sly earlier this week. Director Christopher McQuarrie tweeted a photo of Jeremy Renner, Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames on the set of "M:I5" with the caption "The team is back," and his use of the hashtag #MI5diary leads us to believe this won't be the last Bts pic we'll see from McQuarrie. (Jeremy Renner posted an almost identical photo on his Facebook page, which is cool and all, but it's not quite as epic as Vin Diesel's video of dancing alone to Beyoncé.)

At one point, right around 2011's "Ghost Protocol," it seemed entirely possible that Renner could take over the franchise from Cruise. It looks like that's not the case at all, »

The Boys Are Back In Town In First Set Photo From Mission: Impossible 5

12 September 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Soon after confirming reports of Sean Harris’ involvement in the upcoming sequel, Christopher MacQuarrie took to Twitter to reveal the first set photo for Mission: Impossible 5.

Essentially, the image features the film’s returning A-Team of sorts, with Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames, Jeremy Renner and of course, Ethan Hunt himself, Tom Cruise, all posing for a snap.

Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson and Sean Harris as the aforementioned big bad are also set to star in the anticipated spy thriller, though it appears the trio were either camera shy or just not present during the first day on set — we suspect the latter.

Mission: Impossible 5 marks the first entry into the franchise with Christopher MacQuarrie at the helm. Mind you, given the screenwriter-cum-director’s work with Cruise on Jack Reacher »
