Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

The Skeleton Twins

12 September 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Skeleton Twins

Directed by: Craig Johnson

Cast: Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Ty Burrell, Luke Wilson

Running Time: 1 hr 45 mins

Rating: R

Release Date: September 12, 2014 (Chicago)

Plot: After trying to commit suicide, failed actor Milo (Hader) moves in with his sister Maggie (Wiig), who has her own personal problems.

Who’S It For? Those who like Hader & Wiig, even when they aren’t working with the strongest of material.

Overall

Craig Johnson’s The Skeleton Twins is a humdrum dramedy that never comes to life, despite the talents that have been united for its existence. Featuring two evolving “Saturday Night Live” alums and executive produced by Mark & Jay Duplass, the film prods along with its character study into fictional beings whose dimensions are greatly reduced when they are seen as more than just sad people. At its most valuable, The Skeleton Twins is an observation on various experiences of depression, »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Bart & Fleming: Fest Fight Pits Telluride V Toronto; TV News Overkill In Ferguson?

24 August 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Peter Bart and Mike Fleming Jr. worked together for two decades at Daily Variety. In this occasional column, two old friends get together and grind their axes on the movie business.

Bart: Have you noticed, Mike, that the gamesmanship of pre-festival season is often more entertaining than the fest movies themselves? Toronto has slammed the door on distributors who were sneaking their films into Telluride, then billing Toronto screenings as World Premieres.

Fleming: Labor Day Weekend for me is about getting kids back to school and squeezing the last moments of a summer that has flown by. I have never been to Telluride because the last thing I want to do is spend that holiday weekend in a succession of dark rooms in Colorado. Toronto is my favorite festival. It’s a wonderful platform for distributors to acquire films after seeing how they play to an audience, and to launch »

Frank

15 August 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The droll wit and formal daring of Frank start with the casting. Michael Fassbender has been an X-Man, a gladiator (300), a sex addict (Shame) and an Oscar nominee (12 Years a Slave). Also a hottie, whose posters get drooled over on dorm walls. So why cast Fassbender as a cult-music icon in the title role in Frank and then ask the swoony bugger to cover his head in plastic for 99 percent of the movie?

Don't ask. I'll tell. Because the role is the kind of risk the reliably ballsy Fassbender likes to take. »

Spotlight on the Stars: Michael Fassbender

14 August 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of the business’s hottest names…one Michael Fassbender. In a rather short period of time, he’s gone from a character actor to a critical darling to a superstar, with an Academy Award nomination thrown in there for good measure (along with a few Oscar snubs as well). Fassbender is arguably one of Hollywood’s most talented actors, so it’s great to see him continually display it in interesting and unique projects. He’s a definite A-lister, likely to go down as an all time great when all is said and done, so he’s perfect for this column! Fassbender got his start on television, first coming on to my radar with HBO’s landmark miniseries Band of Brothers. There were other small TV projects (both miniseries and movies, as well as full on »

Michael Fassbender Discusses His Upcoming Assassin's Creed Movie Adaptation

11 August 2014 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Ubisoft Motion Pictures has partnered with New Regency to bring an adaptation of the popular Assassin's Creed game franchise to the big screen. Assassin's Creed centers on a bartender who is captured by a secret corporation and sent back in time utilizing the DNA of his ancestor's memories -- all assassins -- to retrieve ancient artifacts. Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Shame, Inglorious Basterds) is set to star in and produce the upcoming adaptation, with Ubisoft maintaining control of key elements of the movie’s creative direction. During a recent interview, Fassbender spoke briefly about the development of the film: "I’m still a part of Assassin’s Creed, and we’re working on the script as we speak. Actually, I’m going to go back and see the writers when I get back to »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – August 4th 2014

Something I didn’t realise was happening is that Netflix UK and Ireland actually has a blog and what they have been doing  on the rare update is providing information on which ISP’s are actually providing the fastest service. For the last couple of months the top two have always been Virgin and BT with BT coming out on top. Surprisingly though this month it’s switched around and Virgin is on top, considering the negative feedback I always hear about them this is very interesting.

If you google ‘Netflix News’ then you can usually find this blog and check the updates because otherwise it’s not the easiest thing to find via the site. It’s not only a good way of checking that you will get a reliable service if you are just starting out but a good way of seeing whether or not it is worth »

Tense New Images From Hitman: Agent 47 Highlight Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto And Hannah Ware

30 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comic-Con came and went, and one of the less buzzy films highlighted there was 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Hitman: Agent 47, which finds Rupert Friend, of Showtime’s Homeland, stepping into the title role of a nameless assassin. The trailer screened in San Diego hasn’t yet found its way online, though we did see two action-packed images featuring Friend and co-star Hannah Ware (Shame) hit the web a few days back.

Now, as we wait for the trailer release, some more shots from Hitman: Agent 47 have arrived, revealing the appearance of Zachary Quinto (Star Trek Into Darkness), who plays the bad guy of the film. We don’t know too much about the plot of this video game adaptation, though it’s a safe bet that Agent 47 and Quinto’s baddie trade blows and bullets over Ware’s mysterious Katia van Dees.

Rupert Friend Takes Aim In Hitman: Agent 47 Images

25 July 2014 5:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Video game adaptations are notoriously tricky to make – and as a result of that, they’re often quite bad. There have been a few decent entries in the action subgenre (Resident Evil comes to mind), but typically, the films are marred by subpar acting and ludicrous plotting. 2007′s Hitman, which starred Timothy Olyphant as the titular assassin, wasn’t one of the worst video game movies, to be sure, but it suffered from an overly convoluted story. It also seems like an unlikely title to make a sequel to – and yet here we are today, with Hitman: Agent 47 on the way from 20th Century Fox.

Whether the studio had good reason to revisit the stealth video game series or not remains to be seen. But early signs for Agent 47 are promising. The flick stars Rupert Friend (Showtime’s Homeland) in the title role and finds Hannah Ware (Starz’s Boss, »

Check Out The First Image From Michael Fassbender’s Slow West

29 June 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off the overwhelming success of X-Men: Days of Future Past and 12 Years a Slave, the first image of Michael Fassbender’s in his latest project, Slow West, has surfaced. The film – which also features The Road’s Kodi Smit-McPhee – was actually shot towards the back end of last year and sees Fassbender team up with director John Maclean, with whom he has previously collaborated on two short films.

For those unfamiliar with Slow West, here’s the official plot synopsis:

Set at the end of the 19th Century, Slow West is an American western filtered through the eyes of European filmmaking. The story centers on 17 year old Jay Cavendish (Kodi Smit-McPhee) who has traveled from Scotland to Colorado to be reunited with the woman with whom he is infatuated. He is quickly confronted by the dangers of the frontier and so teams up with a mysterious traveler named Silas »

Will the 271 new members of the Academy result in a different type of nominee?

27 June 2014 10:24 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday the Academy sent out a press release announcing 271 individuals who have been invited to join their hallowed ranks. This happens each and every year and is something very nice to see. I always like finding out which members of the industry are invited to join The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. This year, with 271 individuals seen fit for acceptance into their ranks, I sort of wonder if they’ll be able to impact voting in some way and change who and what are nominated for Oscars. You can see the full list of who’s been invited to join at the end of this piece, but a number of names stand out to me and got me thinking about this. Who are some of the folks on the invite list? Well, they include the likes of Paul Dano, Michael Fassbender, Clark Gregg, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lupita Nyong’o, »
