James Franco Talks 'Resentment,' 'Weird Expectations' for 'The Interview'

26 January 2015 12:37 PM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

While it seems like everyone from Hollywood to the White House has voiced their opinion on the controversial, North Korea-infuriating comedy The Interview, the film's star James Franco has stayed mostly mum on the whole situation; the actor even showed up extremely late for Seth Rogen's scheduled live-tweet of the film after it hit video-on-demand. However, the Daily Beast caught up with Franco at Sundance, where the actor finally opened up about the Sony cyber-attack and the rallying cry The Interview created.

The Callow Way – Why We Like Special Forces Movies

25 January 2015 7:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week Neil Calloway looks why American Sniper is breaking box office records…

I’ve read a lot about American Sniper since it was released; about the fake plastic babies it uses instead of real children, about how Michael Moore said snipers were cowards (and then backtracked and said he liked the film), about how it might actually influence a real life murder trial, and lots about how much money it has made. I haven’t read anything suggesting why it has made so much money.

First, the facts – American Sniper had the biggest January opening of a film ever in the Us, the biggest for a drama, the biggest Thursday night R rated opening (more than double that of the previous record holder, last year’s Lone Survivor, which we’ll get back to), the biggest for a Clint Eastwood film; the list goes on. In short, it made »

Review: When Felicity Jones is the best part of 'True Story' we've got problems

24 January 2015 1:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City — There is a moment in Rupert Goold's "True Story" that is truly captivating. After watching her husband be manipulated from afar, Jill Finkel (played marvelously by Felicity Jones), goes to meet accused murderer Christian Longo (James Franco) at the county jail where he's incarcerated. In less than five minutes Jill uses the tale of 16th century composer Carlo Gesualdo, who murdered his wife and baby in cold blood, to unmask Longo as the killer she knows he is and to make it clear his charade will only get so far as long as she's around. It's a moment that demonstrates how talented the current Oscar nominee for Best Actress is in what has been a thankless role up until his point in the film. It also underlines how frustrating a film "True Story" is that the best scene in the movie doesn't include star Jonah Hill and barely involves Franco. »

Constantine Exclusive Interview with Harold Perrineau

23 January 2015 12:40 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Constantine is fighting for its life on NBC, its first season order having been cut by the network to 13 episodes with the promise of a potential second season renewal. For this to happen, though, people absolutely need to watch the last few episodes and prove to the powers that are that there is indeed an audience clamoring for more.  As big a fan of Constantine as any audience member, is actor Harold Perrineau (Oz, Sons of Anarchy, Zero Dark Thirty) who portrays Manny, an angel who happens to be the guardian angel (against his better judgment) of John Constantine (Matt Ryan). In the following exclusive interview, Harold shares his feelings on Manny's evolution and the series itself - which airs at 8Pm Friday nights on NBC. Voices From Krypton: This show is so good, and it's a series that's improving as it's going on. Harold Perrineau: We're on to something. »

Suicide Squad - Joel Edgerton, Jon Bernthal, and Gary Sinise Rumors

23 January 2015 11:29 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Strap in, comic book movie lovers, because there's a lot to get through in this latest update about David Ayer's Suicide Squad. We know that WB has been having a bit of a tough time casting the role of Rick Flag, one of the main characters who will join Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), and Cara Delevingne (Enchantress). Tom Hardy was initially in place to star, but when he left, Jake Gyllenhaal was being eyed as his replacement. But Gyllenhaal passed yesterday, so the producers are looking to get someone else in place quickly.

CinemaBlend reports that Joel Edgerton (Zero Dark Thirty, Warrior) and Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead) are being looked at to play Flag. We know that this character won't have as much screen time as some of the others in this film - read the spoilery »

SAG-o-Metrics: Predicting the Acting Oscars Based on SAG Nominations (Infographic)

23 January 2015 5:40 AM, PST | | See recent news »

One of the great things about awards season is that it provides a rich field for statistic analysis. Attentive viewers can use the Golden Globes (the first major awards show of the season) and SAG Awards (the second) as a sort of predictive measure for the major acting awards at the Oscars. We looked at the Oscar-nominated roles in the four major acting categories (sorry, Jen and Naomi), and cut out anyone who didn't win or get nominated for a Golden Globe and a SAG. Then, we went back five years (because any more than that is insane - who are we, »

Why ‘American Sniper’ Is a Coming Out Party for Patriotism (Guest Blog)

22 January 2015 7:26 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Moviegoers can finally enjoy a film with a genuine hero who served his country and fought in a righteous war

The New England Patriots spent this past weekend earning a spot in the Super Bowl. But many more patriots went to the movies and propelled “American Sniper” to a record-setting January box office weekend.

In doing so, they officially declared war against the likes of Michael Moore, Seth Rogen and so many liberal, peace loving, pot-smoking A-listers and Hollywood suits who, since the 1970s, have had an ambivalent, if not disdainful relationship with war movies in general, and American patriotism in particular. »

Why ‘American Sniper’ Is Doing Better Overseas Than Previous Middle East War Movies

22 January 2015 1:16 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Timing, stars and nuanced campaigns help Clint Eastwood-Bradley Cooper drama start fast abroad for Warner Bros.

The Clint Eastwood-directed Iraq War saga “American Sniper” is off to a strong start at the overseas box office, having taken in more than $26 million in two weeks.

The international launch of the Bradley Cooper drama is particularly impressive, given how tough it has been for modern movies that deal with Americans at war in the Middle East to connect abroad.

To put that in perspective, “American Sniper” has already taken in more than the $24.2 million that last year’s Afghan War drama “Lone Survivor, »

Nic Cage Teams with Borat Director for Bin Laden Comedy

21 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Before you get too excited: no, Nicolas Cage won't be playing the infamous terrorist Osama Bin Laden in this movie - although that would admittedly be pretty amazing.

THR reports that Cage will star in a satirical comedy called Army of One for Borat director Larry Charles. And though this will be based on a true story, don't expect anything serious along the lines of American Sniper or Zero Dark Thirty.

Army of One is loosely based on Chris Heath's GQ magazine article recounting the real-life misadventures of Gary Faulkner, a Colorado construction worker who took it upon himself to find Bin Laden, including trying to sneak into Pakistan and Afghanistan numerous times.

Sounds a little like the Morgan Spurlock documentary Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?, but hopefully Cage's...let's call it "unique" brand of acting will give this film a life of its own. Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph, »

Nic Cage Will Star In Hilarious Comedy About Osama Bin Laden

21 January 2015 10:52 AM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The folks behind Zero Dark Thirty had better hold on tight to their accolades, because soon there.s going to be a new entry into the Osama Bin Laden-hunting genre of film; one that will star none other than the incomparable Nicolas Cage. And get this. Because existing material focusing on the world.s most notorious terrorist leader was a bit too somber, this one.s going to be a comedy! The crazy-eyed icon Nicolas Cage will team-up with legendary comedy writer and director, Larry Charles for a militaristic romp in the desert called Army of One, according to a studio release. The film will reportedly be based on an article in GQ Magazine by Chris Heath, which depicts the puzzling real life adventures of a Colorado construction worker named Gary Faulkner, who, in a series of quixotic whims, attempts on multiple occasions to sneak into Pakistan and Afghanistan to »

Nicolas Cage to Hunt for Osama Bin Laden in Satirical But True Story Army of One

21 January 2015 10:36 AM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The hunt for Osama bin Laden was so significant that we’ve already had a few movies about missions to find and/or kill the al-Qaeda leader. Most famously, of course, is Zero Dark Thirty, which dramatizes the operation that resulted in bin Laden’s death. Before that was the comedic documentary Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?, in which director Morgan Spurlock jokingly travels through Africa and the Middle East in search of the wanted terrorist. Spurlock wasn’t the only “regular guy” on the hunt, though, as we’ll see soon enough in the comedy Army of One. Described as a satire, the movie will also be based on a true story of the “Rocky Mountain Rambo,” Gary Faulkner, a Denver-based construction worker who in 2010 went to Pakistan armed with a pistol, a knife and a samurai sword to take out bin Laden all by himself.

Exodus: Gods and Kings movie review: whites only

21 January 2015 6:50 AM, PST | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Simultaneously the dullest and the most insulting version of itself it could possibly be. If only it had managed to be campy, that’d be something… I’m “biast” (pro): have been a fan of Ridley Scott in the past…

I’m “biast” (con): …but not so much lately

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I think I’ve finally figured out what Exodus: Gods and Kings is all about. I don’t mean how it’s a painfully boring, too-literal adaptation of a Biblical fantasy that’s been told plenty often before, and was not calling out to be told again. I mean how it’s possible that Ridley Scott could have made such a stodgy flick, and one that’s utterly tone-deaf to modern sensibilities. Cuz Scott used to be ahead of the curve, not decades behind it: This is the guy who »

Greig Fraser interview: the cinematography of The Gambler

21 January 2015 5:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Cinematographer Greig Fraser talks to us about his work on The Gambler, from lenses to shooting in Los Angeles...

In Foxcatcher, there’s a captivating scene where Steve Carell’s character, millionaire John du Pont, ushers a stable of horses out into a grey, autumnal morning. It’s a moment given a luminous, magical quality by cinematographer Greig Fraser, whose other recent film credits include Let Me In and Zero Dark Thirty.

The Gambler, the new drama written by William Monahan (The Departed, Kingdom Of Heaven) and directed by Rupert Wyatt (The Escapist, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) represented its own set of unique challenges. One of them was to bring tension and visual excitement to a story that frequently sees its wayward protagonist Jim (Mark Wahlberg) frittering his money away at a blackjack table or lecturing a theatre full of distracted college students.

Examining American Sniper's breakthrough success

20 January 2015 11:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Clint Eastwood's American Sniper has smashed box office records, and picked up Oscar nods. So how did it happen?

This article contains spoilers for American Sniper.

American Sniper stands to be the most financially profitable of this year's Best Picture Oscar contenders by a long way, having out-grossed most of the others' lifetime domestic totals in its first weekend on wide release.

The $90.2 million opening is the highest January opening of all time, more than doubling the opening weekend record set by Ride Along at the same time last year, and it's easily the strongest box office performer of director Clint Eastwood's career.

In short, it did the kind of business you would expect from a superhero movie, or a new instalment in an established franchise, and yet it's an R-rated war drama based on a true story. Irrespective of our thoughts on the film, that's a stunning début. »

Aka Jessica Jones audition tapes reveal potential major villain

20 January 2015 1:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was announced last month that Krysten Ritter (Big Eyes) would be taking on the role of Jessica Jones in Netflix’s new series Aka Jessica Jones, which will also feature Mike Colter (Zero Dark Thirty) as Luke Cage, but details of the show have been kept under wraps.

Some audition tapes have made their way online thanks to Cbm which could give away some details for the show, in particular the villain of the piece.

According to the website, it looks like the big bad will be none other than Zebediah Killgrave, aka Purple Man. In the video below, “Julia” (Jessica) is talking with “Tracey” (possibly Cage) about getting away from someone named “Kincade” who seems to have a hold on her. In the comics, Purple Man has the ability to influence people to do as he pleases and was a common enemy for Jessica Jones (as well as Daredevil, »

Did Seth Rogen Just Refer To American Sniper As War Propaganda?

19 January 2015 8:03 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It seems like every film covering the Iraq/Afghanistan Wars in depth is bound to be both a controversial, yet successful endeavor for the studios that choose to release them. Sure enough, in the spirit of Zero Dark Thirty and Lone Survivor before it, American Sniper has drawn some ire due to its approach to its subject matter. Michael Moore hit out at the film in two separate occasions in the past 24 hours, and now it would seem that Seth Rogen might be chiming in with his own negative thoughts on the film. Or is he? Earlier today, Rogen's Twitter feed was host to some comments on how he felt about Clint Eastwood's Best Picture nominee in this year's Oscar race. The initial tweet that started a huge backlash went a little something like this: American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that's showing in the third »

Win A Run-Of-Engagement Pass To See A Most Violent Year in St. Louis

19 January 2015 10:48 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Opening in St. Louis on January 30th, Wamg is giving away Run-Of-Engagement passes to see A Most Violent Year.

A Most Violent Year is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay.

J.C. Chandor’s third feature examines one immigrant’s determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and – above all – his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A Most Violent Year, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and »

Director: Rupert Wyatt

Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams, Leland Orser, Emory Cohen, George Kennedy, Richard Schiff

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 111 minutes

Synopsis:  The death of a beloved grandfather sends a literature professor with a high-stake gambling addiction on a path of self-loathing and destruction as he counter-balances mounting gaming debts with borrowed money from a number of dangerous loan sharks.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’s Rupert Wyatt shows viewers a glimpse into the havoc of an entitled and self-indulgent whiner hell-bent on self-destruction in his latest film The Gambler that stars Mark Wahlberg in the lead role.

Rebooted from James Toback’s original 1974 film starring James Caan, Wyatt’s direction and William Monahan’s screenplay are decidedly different from their predecessors: not only in comparable terms (the protagonist is still a gambling addicted literature professor and disgraced scion of a wealthy »
