Interview: Jason Clarke on Acting with Apes & Terminators

2 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I wonder aloud if Jason Clarke, the still rising breakout star of Zero Dark Thirty, is feeling a little overscheduled these days. Is he scheduled in 20 minute increments at this point? He claims he's taking a little time off to enjoy himself in the days surrounding our 20 minutes on the telephone, but I'm not sure I quite believe him. Which is a strange feeling because onscreen, the fortysomething Aussie is never less than believable whether he's torturing prisoners in Zero Dark Thirty, totally unnerved by talking armed apes on horseback (who wouldn't be?) in Dawn of the Apes, bootlegging with his Bondurant brothers in Lawless, and so on.

Perhaps more surprising than his authenticity onscreen is his modesty. He didn't so much steal his scenes in Zero Dark Thirty as oxygenate then, detailing the emotional and intellectual and moral gaps between his hardened CIA operative and the newbie in his »

Watch: Oscar Isaac Teaches the "Art of the Sell" in New Clip from 'A Most Violent Year'

20 November 2014 7:50 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We all know what we have to talk about with this new clip from A Most Violent Year. Oscar Isaac's hair is unbelievable. I have very thick hair and can only dream someone would style my hair like that. I do not have the budget to hire that person. If I was Oscar Isaac, I would keep that hairstyle for as long as I possibly could. Now I got that out of the way, we can move on to the point of this article. I am eagerly awaiting to see the latest from J.C. Chandor. He is establishing himself as an incredibly versatile and exciting director. All is Lost was quite an impressive feat and taking a massive shift over to a 1980s set thriller (which also stars the immaculate Jessica Chastain) is really interesting. At this point, Chandor has proven himself as someone to respect and admire, so »

Why We'll Miss Chubby Chris Pratt

18 November 2014 12:05 PM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Chris Pratt's weight has yo-yoed over the years as he's split his time between playing buff guys on the big screen (like in Zero Dark Thirty and Guardians of the Galaxy) and portraying his purposefully less buff Parks and Recreation character, Andy Dwyer. However, Chris now says that he is "done" with his constant transformations and his superhero body is here to stay. Look, it's not like we don't appreciate Chris's hot new look (and oh, we really, really do appreciate it), but we first fell in love with Chris back when he had a little jiggle in his middle. So we've decided to put together a few of Chris's best prebuff moments as we prepare to bid adieu to his cuddlier form. »

Kathryn Bigelow’s Proto.Fight Club Art Film Surfaces at MoMA

17 November 2014 2:14 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In a 1995 interview, director Kathryn Bigelow (of Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker fame) recalled filming The Set-Up — her experimental short film that she ended up submitting as her Mfa thesis with Columbia University. It also happened to be her first cinematic endeavor. “I started shooting at about 9pm and finished at 7am,” she said. “It was in an alley off White Street downtown, and it started to snow.” In it, two men (one played by Gary Busey) pummeled each other to a bloody pulp, accompanied by a voice-over of two philosophy professors providing dry commentary. “I knew exactly what I wanted,” said Bigelow. “But I didn’t understand that you fake shots and fake hits and put sound effects in.” As a result, “these guys were getting bloodier and bloodier. They were in bed for two weeks after, I almost killed them.” With French structuralist theory among »

PopPolitics: How NBC’s ‘State of Affairs’ Grappled With Scenes of Isis-Like Videos (Listen)

15 November 2014 12:38 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dario Scardapane, executive producer of NBC’s “State of Affairs,” which debuts on Monday, says that they toned down a sequence in which a fictional terrorist organization releases a video in which they carry out the beheading of a British hostage.

The scene in the pilot actually was shot before last summer, when Isis released videos of beheadings of American and British hostages, Scardapane said on Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM’s Potus Channel. The political thriller series stars Katherine Heigl as a CIA analyst tasked with compiling the president’s daily briefing.

“We’ve gone through quite a wrestling match with ourselves and the network on whether to air, reshoot or recut that sequence because it is so close to reality, and the last thing we would want to do is turn tragedy into entertainment,” Scardapane said.

The scene in the pilot is somewhat graphic as the terrorist brandishes »

Rosewater – The Review

13 November 2014 5:43 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s hard to believe that two years have passed since the release of Ben Affleck’s Argo, which went on to grab many Oscars, including Best Picture (over another true tale with similar themes, Zero Dark Thirty). Since then the Middle East continues to be the setting for many “ripped from the headlines” stories. Now comes another such film, but with several interesting twists. Once more we’re in Iran, part of the “axis of evil” trio named by a former president. But unlike those earlier films, it barely concerns “Westerners” with only a few Brits in small roles. The film’s lead is Iranian-born with nearly all of the action taking place there. As with Affleck helming Argo, another high-profile American is behind the camera, but he doesn’t have a couple of features on his directing resume’.This movie making newcomer arrives right from the world of late-night comedy TV: Jon Stewart. »

This Oscar-Winning Writer Will Bring the 'Uncharted' Video Game to the Big Screen

13 November 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Sony’s plan to bring its beloved action video game franchise Uncharted to the screen appears to be moving forward again. Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is already attached to direct, and now Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal has been hired to polish the existing script. The games follow the Indiana Jones-like Nathan Drake as he travels the globe in search of lost treasures. Finding these treasures often puts Drake on the wrong side of some very bad people, but the wisecracking explorer is as good with a pistol as he is with a quip. The games (there are four in total, with another on the way) have a lighthearted tone, which makes the hiring of Boal (who wrote Zero Dark Thirty) an intriguing new wrinkle. Can Boal write the kind of material that gamers are...

13 November 2014 3:27 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Mark Boal on board to rewrite Uncharted screenplay

13 November 2014 11:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oscar winning screenwriter Mark Boal – best known for writing The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty – has come on board to rewrite the screenplay for the adaptation of the popular video game Uncharted.

David Guggenheim wrote the most recent version of Uncharted that caused Sony to greenlight the movie. Mark Boal has simply come on board to polish up the script before the movie goes into production.

The video game follows a treasure hunter named Nathan Drake, a descendent of explorer Sir Francis Drake, who believes he has learned the whereabouts of the fabled golden South American city El Dorado from a cursed statue. His search for El Dorado becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray.

As of yet there have been no casting announcements for this movie, although Mark Wahlberg and Chris Pratt have both previously being linked to the role.

'Hurt Locker' writer Mark Boal set to buckle some swash with 'Uncharted' adaptation

13 November 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Mark Boal is, frankly, a fantastic choice for "Uncharted." Boal's screenplays for "The Hurt Locker" and "Zero Dark Thirty" are both strong, lean examples of how to tell some very tough stories in a way that both kinetic and intelligent. Boal's got a knack for writing scenes involving military units that make the audience feel like they're on the inside of that very private brotherhood, and I can see how his skill set so far would play directly into "Uncharted." For those of you who are not familiar with the Playstation game series that is the inspiration for the films, think modern-day Indiana Jones.  The games could have very easily been just a shabby and obvious lift from Jones if the action was good… gamers are often satisfied by the mere attempt at narrative… but it turned out to be more than that, with a central character named Nathan Drake. »

Jessica Chastain Demands Respect in First A Most Violent Year Clip

13 November 2014 9:31 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A24 Films has released the first A Most Violent Year clip from writer/director J.C. Chandor’s (All Is Lost) upcoming crime drama.  The film is set in New York in 1981 and revolves around “an American immigrant (Oscar Isaac) and his wife (Jessica Chastain) trying to expand their business as violence and corruption threaten to destroy all they have built.”  This new clip, in no uncertain terms, serves to highlight Chastain’s performance in light of Best Supporting Actress consideration, as she explains to the District Attorney (played by David Oyelowo) how she and her husband must be respected.  This is absolutely one of my most anticipated films of the year, and response from its premiere at AFI Fest was incredibly positive, with many noting that Chandor once again uses a very specific story to draw parallels to what’s going on in our world today.

'Uncharted' Lands 'Hurt Locker' Writer; Chris Pratt Passes

13 November 2014 7:10 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has officially passed on the video game adaption Uncharted for Sony. But not all is lost, as the studio moves forward on the project by hiring Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal, the driving force behind Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker.

Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon is taking on this big screen adventure based on the popular franchise Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. David Guggenheim (Stolen; Safe House; the upcoming Narco Sub and Bad Boys 3) wrote the most recent draft, with Mark Boal being set up to finish the job. He will do a three week polish.

&#8232While Uncharted might seem like an odd fit for the more reality based writer, Mark Boal is a self-proclaimed fan of the video game. And he will help continue to see the studio's vision of Uncharted as a swashbuckling Indiana Jones type adventure.

Uncharted movie: new writer hired, Chris Pratt turns film down

12 November 2014 10:50 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The movie of the videogame Uncharted remains set for 2016, as the writer of Zero Dark Thirty jumps aboard...

The planned movie of Sony's videogame series Uncharted remains on the schedule for 2016, although there's not been much in the way of obvious progress on it. At least not much anybody's been talking about. However, there is a bit of news on the film now, and first up, it seems that Chris Pratt - riding high this year off the back of The Lego Movie and Guardians Of The Galaxy (with Jurassic World scheduled for 2016) - has turned down the role of Nathan Drake.

Obviously the role of Nathan Drake should go to Nathan Fillion, but nobody seems to be getting our memos on the matter.

Behind the camera remains Seth Gordon, who's been attached to direct for a little while now. But the studio has now hired the writer of Zero Dark Thirty »
