The Western Makes A Comeback In New Trailer For The Salvation

4 March 2015 2:24 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Westerns have been very few and far between over the last few years, and with the exception of Django Unchained, they haven't really found a place with modern audiences. That could all change with The Salvation, a tribute to classic westerns of years past, that perfectly captures the classic and mythic nature of this beloved genre. The above trailer does a great job of showing exactly what director Kristian Levring wants to achieve with The Salvation, and couples a strong lead performance from Mads Mikkelsen with an impressive supporting cast, including Eva Green, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Eric Cantona (yes, really. He's proven himself a competent actor since he gave up football). I have a feeling, years from now, this could be said in the same breath as other classic westerns, like Once Upon a Time in the West, Tombstone, and Unforgiven. Released: 17th April Synopsis: In the 1870s, among new settlers and outlaws, »

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Have 24 Personalities In 'The Crowded Room'

2 March 2015 7:22 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Remember when Leonardo DiCaprio said he was planning to take a long break from acting after "Django Unchained" and "The Great Gatsby"? Well, that didn't really seem to happen. He's currently shooting Alejandro González Iñárritu's "The Revenant," his slate as a producer is massive, and now he's just tacked on another gig that will seem both producing and starring. DiCaprio is taking the lead in the true story tale, "The Crowded Room," a project he's been trying to get off the ground for years, and one that other filmmakers have tried to make too. In fact, James Cameron, Joel Schumacher, and David Fincher toyed with it at various points, and the subject matter is intriguing. Based on Daniel Keyes' book "The Minds of Billy Milligan," it tells the story of the titular man, who became the first person to use the legal defence of multiple personality disorder successfully. »

Leonardo DiCaprio developing Robin Hood: Origins

26 February 2015 11:13 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A further Robin Hood origin story is in development, and Leonardo DiCaprio is involved...

In what amounts to the third competing attempt to revive the adventures of Robin Hood into a new post-Avengers world, Leonardo DiCaprio and Joby Harold have joined forces to bring new life to the Princes of Thieves and his merry men. Sherwood Forest is getting awfully crowded these days…

As first broken by The Tracking Board, DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company is teaming with Harold’s Safehouse Pictures production company to produce a spec script Harold has entitled Robin Hood: Origins. As you might expect, it is a new detailed origin story for the bandit of Sherwood that with its current title is just begging for franchising capabilities.

Harold has previously contributed on Edge Of Tomorrow as an executive producer and as one of its many writers, as well as a writer on Warner Bros' upcoming Guy Ritchie reimagining, »

First look at Dave Bautista and Lea Seydoux in Spectre, plus new behind-the-scenes featurette

26 February 2015 11:37 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Empire has given us our first look at Dave Bautista’s (Guardians of the Galaxy) Mr. Hinx and Lea Seydoux’s Dr. Madeleine Swann (Blue Is the Warmest Color) from the upcoming Bond sequel Spectre with two new images from the hotly-anticipated film…

“When I came over to meet Sam [Mendes], I only asked two questions,” states Bautista. “I asked him if Mr. Hinx was a badass. He said, ‘Yes, he’s a badass.’ I said, ‘Well, is Mr. Hinx intelligent?’ He said, ‘Very.’ That’s what I like about Mr. Hinx. He’s very well-dressed and very well-mannered. I’m not just here to fight people. He has a sense of humour. He definitely knows what a metaphor is.”

“I don’t consider myself a Bond girl,” adds Seydoux. “I think I’m not really the stereotyped Bond girl. I feel quite different. You can’t be like, ‘Oh, James. »

Louisiana Tax Incentives at Risk?

25 February 2015 8:02 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Hollywood South might be losing some of its luster. Louisiana lawmakers are considering pulling back on the state’s tax credit incentives that have encouraged television shows like “True Detective,” “The Walking Dead,” “NCIS: New Orleans,” and “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” and Oscar-winning movies “Dallas Buyers Club,” “12 Years a Slave,” and “Django Unchained” to film everywhere from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. They’re concerned because of the minimal income that is directly generated from the film industry when compared to how much is given to moviemakers in tax breaks. But president of the Louisiana Film Entertainment Association Will French outlined the benefits of the program at the Baton Rouge Press Club Feb. 23, highlighting the potential of economic diversification; the possibility of further growth for the in-state industry, capturing Los Angeles’ runaway production; and increasing the number of people who return or stay in-state, as well as those who visit. »

Oscars 2016: It's Never Too Early for the Next Best Picture Predictions

23 February 2015 9:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the Feb. 27 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. The Hateful Eight (Weinstein, fall) Early script reviews of Quentin Tarantino's eighth film were not kind, but don't count out the Django Unchained follow-up, with a cast including Channing Tatum and Samuel L. Jackson. Joy (Fox, Dec. 25) David O. Russell's third collaboration with Jennifer Lawrence is the quirky story of Miracle Mop inventor and QVC star Joy Mangano. Me and Earl and the Dying (Fox Searchlight, Tbd) Like Whiplash and Boyhood, the Sundance breakout could go all the way to next year's Oscars. Read

Four Different Directors Could All Win Oscars Sunday

19 February 2015 7:43 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald 

Managing Editor

Four different directors whose films are nominated for best picture could all win Oscars at Sunday’s ceremony.

Birdman, directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and Boyhood, directed by Richard Linklater, are frontrunners in the best picture race. Both directors are nominated as co-producers on their respective films and both are also nominated for best director. If Inarritu wins for best picture and Linklater wins for best director (or vice versa), it would be the 24th time in Oscar history where best picture and best director have split.

Wes Anderson, director of The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Damien Chazelle, director of Whiplash, are nominated for original screenplay and adapted screenplay, respectively. Anderson co-produced The Grand Budapest Hotel.

If Anderson and Chazelle win for their screenplays (and Linklater and Inarritu win), it would be the second year in a row where three or more directors won at the same awards ceremony. »

Video: Will Smith's Top 10 Things He'll Miss (Nude Biff?!) About Letterman

19 February 2015 6:22 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Will Smith might enjoy the occasional beatboxing session with Jimmy Fallon, but nothing can compare to his “electric sexual chemistry” — his words — with David Letterman.

On Wednesday’s Late Show, the Focus star sat down for his last appearance with Letterman, and listed the top 10 reasons he’ll miss the host once he retires… though he probably won’t miss being confused with Django Unchained‘s Jamie Foxx!

Shaft Reboot Movie In The Works

19 February 2015 12:28 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

John Davis has set up a new Shaft movie at New Line. A lot of the tropes of 70s blaxploitation movies are quite embarrassing, and more risible than ever after films like Black Dynamite, Don’t Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood and Hollywood Shuffle, but there’s no reason for a new Shaft to keep any kitsch trappings.

In their story, The Wrap are calling the new picture a reboot rather than a remake, which is fair enough as the last sort-of remake of Shaft was actually a sequel: Samuel L. Jackson’s Shaft was the nephew of Richard Roundtree’s original. That might be the case this time, or maybe not. Heck, they might even be planning a period movie for all we know.

Here’s a bit of trivia: not only has Quentin Tarantino crossed over Django Unchained with Zorro for some comics, »

Best Original Screenplay: Will Wes Anderson finally get a 'Grand' Oscar moment?

16 February 2015 2:31 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Screenwriters never have it easy, do they? They often complain they are seen as second class citizens to the director. Actors often get credit for improvising a line they wrote and, worse, producers will often play games with the media, insisting they came up with a key storyline or the entire project themselves. Things get even more complicated with the sometimes unfair arbitration rules that often find the wrong writer getting final credit for a project (often because of a contract he or she signed). Frankly, all of this adversity might be one reason why winning an Academy Award means so much to a working Hollywood screenwriter.   This year's crop of Original Screenplay nominees are all worthy of taking home Oscar on their previous merits. Without a true "first-timer" in the group*, it goes without saying whoever wins this year might find the spoils that much sweeter. "Boyhood's" Richard Linklater »

Why ‘Birdman’ Will Be Mia at the WGA Awards

11 February 2015 3:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The awards season momentum for “Birdman” — which has won the major trophies at the PGA, SAG and DGA ceremonies — is about to be halted temporarily.

When the Writers Guild of America hands out its screenwriting awards Saturday, the Oscar-nominated scripts for “Birdman” and “The Theory of Everything” won’t be named. Both scripts were excluded by the WGA last year when the guild sent out its nominations ballot to members, which included 60 scripts in the original category and 48 in adapted.

The script for “Birdman,” written by director Alejandro G. Inarritu, Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr. and Armando Bo, is up for an Oscar in the original screenwriting category. Anthony McCarten’s script for “The Theory of Everything” is contending for an Oscar in the adapted screenplay contest.

The WGA restrictions on script awards are far more rigorous than those for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, SAG-aftra and the Directors Guild of America. »

StreamFix: 5 Amazing 'Best Supporting Actor' Winners to Watch Now

9 February 2015 3:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that these damn Grammys are out of the way, we can focus on the only meaningless award that matters: the Oscar. The Best Supporting Actor category has a varied and interesting past, and if you check out Netflix right now, you can drink in these legendary performances that picked up a trophy. George Sanders in "All About Eve" This is my personal pick for the best win in the Supporting Actor category. George Sanders plays the deadly droll Addison DeWitt, a theater critic whose snipes make or break thespian careers. He's enchanted (but not fooled) by the manipulative sociopath Eve Harrington (Anne Baxter), who sets out to supplant veteran actress Margo Channing (Bette Davis) as the reigning doyenne of the New York stage. Though Sanders is hilarious throughout "All About Eve," he rather poetically articulates the pleasure of theater (and, in doing so, sums up "Birdman") during his finest »
