Tmp's Prelude to 2012—Part 3: The Avengers, Battleship, Prometheus, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and More

30 December 2011 6:01 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer 2012 is nowhere near as massive as Summer 2011.  But you know, that may be a blessing in disguise.  Summer 2012 still has more than its fair share of films to look forward to, and the big ones are especially noteworthy.  How can a summer with The Avengers, Prometheus, and The Dark Knight Rises Possibly go wrong?  Well, it can't.  So, even though Summer 2012 isn't as over-packed as Summer 2011 one, there's still plenty for film fans to salivate over.  So without further ado, let's get started!  Part Three of Tmp's Prelude to 2012 begins right now!

Summer 2012 is certainly kicking off with a bang.  Releasing everywhere on May 4 is The Avengers, the long awaited superhero film putting all our favorite Marvel characters (minus Spider-Man, Wolverine, Daredevil, and all the ones you Really like) into one team.  The build up for The Avengers has been intense, with over four years and five films of investment, »

Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom Synopsis

27 December 2011 2:54 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Time to share the official synopsis part for the upcoming Wes Anderson directed project Moonrise Kingdom. Definitely something worth our attention, simply because we have some great cast on board. I will admit I’m not so impressed with the story, but – what the hell, I will give Anderson a try! You should do the [...]

Germain’s 10 Most Anticipated Films of 2012

27 December 2011 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

If 2012 is the end of the world, that's all right with me. Hollywood has overstocked the Mayan calendar's final year with so many potentially amazing movies that trying to cut it down to a top ten was virtually impossible. How could movies like The Amazing Spider-Man, Brave or Lincoln not be on this list? Ten then became twenty, which was more satisfying but there were still a few major films lingering. So, while I could have easily done 30, here are my ten most anticipated films with a bloated honorable mention list. Is your most anticipated on the list? Here are my honorable mention anticipated films of 2012, from least to most anticipated: John Carter, This is 40, World War Z, Gangster Squad, Wreck-It Ralph, Lincoln, The Amazing Spider-Man, Brave, American Reunion, Looper And now the top 10, complete with photos and brief descriptions. 10. Les Miserables - While I have a feeling this musical »

Frances McDormand Cast in Matt Damon’s Directorial Debut

20 December 2011 5:02 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We reported back in October that Matt Damon was planning on following his life-mate Ben Affleck’s lead into the world of directing by putting together a movie about a salesman traveling to a new town and having his life dramatically changed by the experience, and that hasn’t changed. And neither has their been much additional news on the project’s development. He’s still co-writing it with The Office’s John Krasinski, who will co-star with Damon as well, and they’re still working off of an original idea that came from Dave Eggers (“A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius,” Away We Go). But, finally, something new has broke. Damon claims that they’re getting to the point in development where they’re looking to fill out the rest of the cast, and when talking to public radio show The Business, Damon says that they’ve started the casting process strong by signing up veteran »

[1] Yup, that's Michael Giacchino striking the goofy pose in the header image, but don't let the silliness fool you -- he's one of the hottest film and TV composers working today, and one of the main reasons you should be excited about the rest of this post.

Matt Damon Adds Frances McDormand To Directorial Debut; Talks Influence From Working With Master Filmmakers

19 December 2011 4:44 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since breaking out with Good Will Hunting, Matt Damon has gone from huge franchises (Bourne, Ocean’s films) to smaller independent projects (Margaret, Gerry) to prestige films (The Departed, Syriana) to bigger gambles like this year’s The Adjustment Bureau, all while having some fun (Stuck On You, Dogma). He will now be taking his career to the next level (as his pal Ben Affleck has done with success in The Town and Gone Baby Gone), by directing his first feature.

This fall we got some new details on the untitled drama developed by author Dave Eggers (Where the Wild Things Are) and co-written with The Office‘s John Krasinski. They will both star in the film that follows “a salesman who arrives in a small town only to have his whole life called into question.” We finally have some more insight into the project, as Damon stopped by Kcrw »

First Synopses for Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and Focus Features 2012 Slate Including Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World

19 December 2011 3:17 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We’ve got a few synopses to share with you today. First up is the very first logline for director Alfonso Cuaron’s ambitious 3D sci-fi flick Gravity. While all we’ve previously known about the mysterious project is that Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play astronauts, and Bullock occupies much of the screentime alone, stranded in space. This synopsis sheds a bit more light on what to expect, and Gravity still stands as one of my most anticipated films from 2012. Additionally, Focus Features has released a batch of synopses for their 2012 slate including Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, the apocalyptic flick Seeking a Friend for the End of the World starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley, the 3D stop-motion comedy ParaNorman, and more. Hit the jump to get a peek into what 2012 has in store. Here’s the synopsis for Gravity courtesy of MarketSaw: Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, »

Daily Briefing. Film Comment Poll: Best of 2011

17 December 2011 8:17 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life tops Film Comment's list of the "Best Released Films of 2011," an annual year-end survey of film critics, editors, and past and present contributors — over 120 of them this year — so the magazine has put Kent Jones's beautiful essay from the July/August issue online (even if you don't admire the film as much as he does, you'll know that this is a must-read), and the Film Society of Lincoln Center is screening The Tree of Life through Tuesday.

The "Released" list goes as far as 50; the "Best Unreleased Movies of 2011" list runs to 52. At #1 is Jafar Panahi's This Is Not a Film; #2: Béla Tarr's The Turin Horse. There's been some grumbling among the tweeting set, by the way, that this list is too crowded with films that have scored distribution deals and will indeed be seeing a theatrical run sooner or later. »

Release Dates: ‘Being Flynn’, ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World’, ‘Moonrise Kingdom’

16 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

[1] Even as I'm rushing to catch up on the 2011 films I've missed before the end of the year, I'm already looking forward to the crop of films that are due to open next year. Focus Features has just announced release dates for three of its upcoming releases I'm most curious about: Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom, Paul Weitz's Being Flynn, and Lorene Scafaria's Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Details after the jump. Variety [2] reports that Being Flynn will get a limited release March 2, the same day that The Lorax, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, and Project X are set to open wide. Based on Nick Flynn's acclaimed memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Being Flynn features Paul Dano as a young writer who reconnects with his absentee dad (Robert De Niro) when the latter shows up at the homeless shelter where the former works. »

Wes Anderson's 'Moonrise Kingdom' Will Hit Theaters On May 25, 2012 In Limited Release

16 December 2011 10:13 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, we haven't heard much about Wes Anderson's latest in the last little while, but it looks like we're going to get a lot more details on "Moonrise Kingdom" as it's arriving in just about five months. Focus Features has set the film for a May 25th limited release, following their usual platform rollout style. Details have been kept tight on the project, but the film is set in 1960s New England, with the story centering on a young boy and young girl who fall in love and run away together, turning their small town upside down in the process. Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Harvey Keitel and newcomers Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward feature in the picture, and given the date and star power involved we wonder if a trip to Cannes might be in the works. Granted, Wes Anderson has never been to Cannes, »

Interview: Alexandre Desplat Discusses His Favorite Project, Not Refusing Daldry, and Working Alone

14 December 2011 3:59 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

When I was given the opportunity to interview French composer Alexandre Desplat, the question wasn’t what I would ask him, it was how many questions I would be able to get in. One of the busiest composers in the business, just this year alone Desplat has created the scores for The Tree of Life, A Better Life, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, The Ides of March, Carnage, and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close and is already on deck to compose next year’s Moonrise Kingdom. Desplat first caught my attention a few years ago when I realized he was the composer behind both the quirky score for Fantastic Mr. Fox and the epic score for Twilight Saga: New Moon – two very different films with two very different musical tones. Having won Film Composer of the Year at the World Soundtrack Awards, it is clear that the rest of the world is starting to »
