Rupert Friend Takes Aim In Hitman: Agent 47 Images

3 hours ago | 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, »

On the heels of the 39th edition of the Toronto Int. Film Festival (Sept 4-14), Ifp’s Independent Film Week is where a plethora of fiction, non-fiction and new this year, web-based series from the likes of Desiree Akhavan and Calvin Reeder find future coin. Sectioned off as projects at the very beginning of financing to those that are nearing completion, there happens to be tons of Sundance alumni in the names below. Among those that caught our attention we have Medicine for Melancholy‘s Barry Jenkins’ sophomore feature, produced by Bad Milo!‘s Adele Romanski, Moonlight is about “two Miami boys navigate the temptations of the drug trade and their burgeoning sexuality in this triptych drama about black queer youth”.

Sleepy Hollow Season 1 Blu-ray / DVD Release Date & Cover Art

3 July 2014 8:26 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“My name is Ichabod Crane. In 1781, I died on the battlefield. I was saved by a mysterious spell cast upon me by my beloved wife, Katrina.” Ichabod is resurrected in the present-day town of Sleepy Hollow. Known for being home to the spooky story of the headless horseman, Sleepy Hollow is about to become a lot scarier as invasive supernatural evils make their presence known. It’s up to Ichabod and police officer Lt. Abbie Mills to save the community and the world in Sleepy Hollow, the first season of which is being released on Blu-ray and DVD this fall.

Slated for a September 16th release, the complete first season of Sleepy Hollow comes with a heaping handful of special features, including deleted scenes, audio commentaries, and a gag reel. For those unfamiliar with the show, here’s the synopsis:

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, »

Welcome to the Academy. 10 Interesting Invitations

26 June 2014 1:10 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Academy welcomes its new members at an invite only event in September, just as we begin to feel the rumblings of Oscar buzz everywhere.

While not every person nominated for the first time for an Oscar in any given year is invited to join the next year (isn't that weird?) it's common practice that they are. So new names like Lupita Nyong'o, Barkhad Abdi, and more established actors like Sally Hawkins and June Squibb will all be voting for the first time this coming season after walking the red carpets as nominees. That's expected. What's far more interesting is the people invited in any given year that have not been nominated.

Here are ten names I want to highlight because they're interesting invitations for one reason or another.

Sean Bobbitt - Cinematographer (12 Years a Slave) - egregiously snubbed last year which might have done it but that's not his only beautifully shot film. »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Nicolas Winding Refn Will Direct I Walk With The Dead Next

6 June 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How do you follow up the arthouse one-two punch of modern classic Drive and divisive Only God Forgives? If you’re auteur Nicolas Winding Refn, by taking on “a movie with lots of sex,” that’s how. We’ve known that Refn has been planning to make I Walk With The Dead since 2011, but now official confirmation has emerged from the director that the horror thriller will be his next project.

This morning, Refn tweeted out the following, addressing questions of his next big-screen venture:

The silence has been broken my next film will be I Walk With The Dead shooting in La

Nicolas Winding Refn (@NicolasWR) June 6, 2014

When we spoke with Refn back in 2012, we learned that the director was eying either La or Tokyo as the shooting location for I Walk With The Dead, and now it appears he’s made a choice between the two. Hopefully, the »

Carey Mulligan And Helena Bonham Carter Revolt In Suffragette First Look

4 June 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

English ingénue Carey Mulligan broke onto the international stage in 2009 with her Academy Award-nominated turn in An Education. Since then, she's shown a passion for tackling daring dramas, from the sci-fi-infused love triangle tale Never Let Me Go to Steve McQueen's nymphomaniac character study Shame, and Nicolas Winding Refn's ultra-violent romance Drive. Now she's giving voice to the early feminist movement with her upcoming drama Suffragette. Collider shares the first still from Suffragette, which shows Carey Mulligan in turn-of-the-century attire, raring for a fight at a "Votes for Women" rally. At her side appears to be Romola Garai, and tucked under that dreadful big hat hides Helena Bonham Carter. Screenwriter Abi Morgan, who has previously adapted history into female-fronted dramas with The Iron Lady and The Invisible Woman, found her inspiration for Suffragette, not in the genteel upper class ladies most often associated with the movement, but with »

Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter And Ann-Marie Duff Protest For Equality In First Suffragette Image

2 June 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How this fall will shake out in terms of the 2015 Oscar race is largely still a mystery, but few films have as much clout behind them heading into the second half of the year as Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette. With its absolutely loaded cast and thrilling, true-history story, Suffragette is basically Oscar bait at its finest. And with An Education‘s Carey Mulligan, Les Miserables‘ Helena Bonham Carter and Nowhere Boy‘s Ann-Marie Duff in the cast, not to mention Meryl Streep, this is shaping up to be one formidable awards contender.

Now, we’ve got our first look at the film, with an image (above) that shows, from left to right, Duff, Mulligan and Bonham Carter’s characters raising their voices as part of a feminist protest. What makes Suffragette particularly interesting is that it doesn’t center on the feminist movement as a whole; rather, it zeroes in »

Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter Fight for Women’s Rights in First Suffragette Image

2 June 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Pathe has released the first Suffragette image and synopsis online.  Written by Abi Morgan (Shame) and directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), the film stars Carey Mulligan as a working-class women's rights activist in the early days of the feminist movement.  As the official synopsis points out, the story has the unique perspective of focusing more on working women who were willing to turn to violence as opposed to the usually-depicted genteel, educated activists. Hit the jump to check out the Suffragette image and synopsis.  The film also stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Meryl Streep.  Post-production is currently underway, so we'll see if Suffragette is ready in time for the fall festival circuit, or if it will be released next year. Via Pathe International. Here's the official synopsis for Suffragette: Suffragette is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, »

Top Ten Most Exciting Directors Working Today

28 May 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Quentin Tarantino, during his Cannes Film Festival press conference (watch it here), mentioned an email chain he was a part of where he and some friends discussed what they believed to be the ten most exciting directors working today. Among those listed he said only David Fincher and Richard Linklater where in everyone's top ten, he wasn't sure why Pedro Almodovar wasn't on everyone's list and he also qualified what he believed it meant for a director to be the "most exciting". Here's how he put it: "I think what that means is, you feel that their best work is still in front of them. That's what makes a filmmaker exciting, that's what makes you anticipate a new movie coming out. Because the new movie could be their best one. From this day on that will be the new barometer from which they're judged. We could be wrong, and their »

Critical Mass: Is 'X-Men' the best superhero movie of the year?

23 May 2014 9:56 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Avengers might have a new nemesis: mutants.

Hollywood politics will likely keep Marvel’s two most-populated superhero franchises on different movie screens for the foreseeable future, but the critics are poised to put Fox’s X-Men on the same pedestal as the Avengers following Days of Future Past. Bryan Singer’s new movie, based on a 1981 comic book that involves time travel and mutant-killing Sentinels, unites the original “present-day” X-Men with their younger selves, introduced in Matthew Vaughn’s stylish 2011 prequel, First Class.
