Red Sea to sell Hk romance, vampire comedy

25 March 2015 | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: La-based sales outfit brings It’s Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong and Bloodsucking Bastards to Filmart.

Roman Kopelevich’s Red Sea Media is to handle all international sales for It’s Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong and is debuting the romantic comedy to buyers this week at Filmart.

Directed and written by Emily Ting, the film stars Jamie Chung (Big Hero 6) and Bryan Greenberg (Friends With Benefits), and was produced by Ting with Sophia Shek.

Chung plays a Chinese American who visits Hong Kong for the first time and meets a Us expat (Greenberg). But as romance blossoms, time is not on their side.

The rights deal was negotiated by Kopelevich for Red Sea Media and Ari Haas of Sedgemoore Pictures on behalf of the filmmakers.

Ting said: “We shot the film in Hong Kong last summer and I couldn’t be happier to be returning ‘home’ a year later with the finished product.”

The Mid-Season Replacements Episode 14 & 15 – The Lost Mega-Sode

12 March 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Found under the ice of Fortitude by Dci Morton, The Mid-Season Replacements return with a two-part episode originally thought lost to the gods of podcasting. Two episodes thought vanished, have survived the extreme weather of the Northeast, and have finally arrive, in the form of The Mid-Season Replacement’s Great Lost Mega-Sode!

Part I of the Mega-Sode (henceforth known as “Episode 14″) takes us back to the elder days of February 2015, hours after the NBA trade deadline, which has Randy and Sean reacting in real time to. They also dig into the then-recent (but still painful) cancellation of Ground Floor, talk about Banshee, Fresh Off The Boat‘s racial undertones, and other shows like Schitt’s Creek, NBC’s failed 2010 sitcom Friends with Benefits, and the delay of Hannibal.

Episode 15 (or “Part II”, if you want to be fancy) is a relic from March 5th, 2015, when the guys had just seen »

Live action Akira movie delayed; no progress has been made says director

9 March 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s a movie that hasn’t entirely won over fans of the original movie (or George Takei for that matter), but it looks like the live action adaptation of Akira has hit a bump in the road.

At a press conference for his upcoming action movie Run All Night (starring Liam Neeson), director Jaume Collet-Serra was asked about the production and when we can start hearing some movement. His answer?

“No, no. There’s nothing”.

He then told reporters that questions about Akira should be directed to Warner Bros., who it appears is holding up the start date. But it’s not just the studio that is holding back Collet-Serra from his movie, but the fact he is looking for a bit of time off after filming Run All Night back-t0-back with his previous Liam Neeson action movie Non-Stop.

“I truly will not make a decision on a »

When Oscars turn sour: 10 disastrous post-Academy Awards roles

17 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Think that winning an Academy Award provides an actor with a surefire path to unlimited great roles? Think again. Oscars history is filled with stars who've taken home a gold statue only to see all their hard work undone in seconds with a stinker of a follow-up movie.

Digital Spy takes a look at 10 of these instances below...

Halle Berry - Catwoman (2004)

A piercing performance in Monster's Ball won Halle Berry an Oscar in 2002, but a rocky road lied ahead. She followed it up with disastrous Bond movie Die Another Day, hardly any screen time in X-Men 2 and turgid horror Gothika. Oh, and Catwoman... how could we forget Catwoman (believe us, we've tried)?

Jeff Bridges - Tron Legacy (2011)

Jeff Bridges's Oscar victory for Crazy Heart felt more like an acknowledgement for a body of work than that particular role (Crazy Heart is not his best). Thank goodness, then, that »

Jupiter Ascending's Mila Kunis talks Wachowskis, pizza, and Channing Tatum

4 February 2015 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s easy to underestimate Mila Kunis. She’s the petite, gorgeous actor who kick-started her career as a teenager on the TV comedy "That ’70s Show" and continues to earn laughs today voicing Meg on TV’s "Family Guy." On the big screen she’s cracked wise in comedies such as Forgetting Sarah MarshallTed and Friends With Benefits.

But the 31-year-old knows she can do more than just make people laugh. She turned heads as a conniving ballerina in 2010’s Black Swan, and in 2013 she was the heartbroken witch who turns nasty in Oz: The Great and Powerful.

In the Wachowskis-directed sci-fi Jupiter Ascending, Kunis will play lowly janitor Jupiter Jones, who learns from a human/wolf hybrid warrior (Channing Tatum) that she’s actually alien royalty and the rightful ruler of Earth.

We caught up with her while she was driving around Los Angeles — “Don’t worry, »

Sleeping with Other People Movie Review

28 January 2015 3:47 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Sleeping with Other People Director: Leslye Headland Starring: Jason Sudeikis, Alison Brie, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet, Jason Mantzoukas, Andrea Savage, Natasha Lyonne Can men and women ever be just friends? Films like No Strings Attached and Friends with Benefits have suggested that if sex enters the equation, all bets are off, since romance and love are inevitable consequences of a physical relationship. In Sleeping with Other People, two people meet one night in college and lose their virginities to each other, and then are not reunited for twelve years. Realizing just how much sex has ruined every relationship either of them has ever had, they decide to avoid any  [ Read More ]

Sundance 2015: You should abstain from ‘Sleeping with Other People’

26 January 2015 6:44 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sleeping with Other People

Written & Directed by Leslye Headland

USA, 2015

With each new inferior romantic-comedy, you come to appreciate the delicate brilliance of When Harry Met Sally just a little bit more.  Sleeping with Other People is a particularly egregious offender because it borrows so heavily from the classic.  Though it tries very hard (too hard) to please, it can’t overcome its faulty premise, miscast leads, and ill-conceived gags.  This is a rom-com with very few laughs and even fewer romantic sparks.

From the first frames, it’s evident that Sleeping with Other People is saddled with a deeply flawed premise.  Lainey (Alison Brie) is an uber-fox who remained sexless because she “wanted to be chosen” by a complete zero named Matthew Sobvechik (Adam Scott).  Lainey’s virginal counterpart is Jake (Jason Sudeikis); an uncouth douchebag who “wanted his first time to be special.”  Okay, that’s utter nonsense, »
