2017 Could Be the Year of the Rescued Movie Franchise

7 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In other words: sequels are back, baby!

Last year saw the Death of the Sequel. So many follow-ups to hit movies and new installments of popular franchises bombed hard. Many of them surprisingly. Outside of some extreme exclusions, such as Finding Dory and Captain America: Civil War, it was a bad year for familiar characters. Enough that I listed 15 properties I believe expired (in current form) in 2016.

Well, it’s a new year and a bright new day for film series. Looking ahead at the next 12 months (present included), there are more sequels, prequel-sequels, spinoffs, and other types of franchise continuations, and a lot of them look really good. Sure, last year we were excited for the Jack Reacher, Bourne, and even Independence Day sequels, but this time it’ll be different.

Inspired by a comment made by Joanna Robinson on last week’s A Storm of Spoilers podcast about this potentially being Marvel’s best year »

13 January 2017 6:34 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Denis Villeneuve, Kelly Fremon Craig And Dan Trachtenberg Among Nominees For DGA Awards

12 January 2017 12:17 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What a year it’s been for writer-director Denis Villeneuve. Following the one-two punch of Prisoners and Sicario, in 2016 the filmmaker crafted a stunning, cerebral sci-fi in the form of Arrival, and will remain in the genre for not only Blade Runner 2049, but also Legendary’s embryonic Dune reboot.

For Villeneuve, it’s Arrival that has fired his name directly into the Oscar race, and while we wait patiently for The Academy to select its nominees (keep your peepers peeled on January 24), the latest round of nominations are in. This time, it’s the Directors Guild of America’s turn to announce their candidates for this year’s ceremony and sure enough, Denis Villeneuve is among the nominees. He’s in the running for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in a Feature Film, a title Damien Chazelle (La La Land), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), Garth Davis (Lion) and Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester by the Sea »

Interview: Ryan Gosling on La La Land, learning to play the piano & his musical future

12 January 2017 10:52 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Fresh from its triumph at the Golden Globes this weekend, award winner Ryan Gosling and his La La Land co-star Emma Stone have a lot to smile about as their film waltzes into UK cinemas. The actor has an incredible few years behind and ahead of him, with The Nice Guys being one of last year’s very best films. His work with Nicholas Winding Refn showed a side to the former Disney Channel jazz-hander that was very interesting, and we’ll see him later this year in Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049.

His turn in Damien Chazelle’s film is, along with that of his co-star Emma Stone, one of the most delightful performances of the past few years. The sheer joy of the world of La La Land is infectious. Though, as we found out from this interview with Gosling, it was a tough, »

‘Arrival’: How DGA Nominee Denis Villeneuve Shaped His Unique Oscar Contender

12 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There’s no question that “Arrival” is one of the best-crafted movies of 2016 — its many critics group and guild nominations attest to this. On Oscar nominations morning, the sci-fi drama will likely dominate the field along with “La La Land.” And in a competitive year for the Best Actress Oscar, Amy Adams is in contention for a slot.

All that said, there’s no way this film’s smart script and unique visuals would have survived a studio’s development process.

The movie boasts an unusual pedigree: Independently produced by Fox’s 21 Laps producer Shawn Levy, Film Nation and Lava Bear, and acquired by Paramount at auction for $20 million at Cannes 2014, “Arrival” is far from Hollywood standard fare. It’s custom-made and idiosyncratic in all the right ways. Montreal filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who has charted »

Interview: Ridley Scott & Tom Hardy take us inside the world of Taboo, their new BBC TV series

6 January 2017 10:48 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

“I feel least qualified to go and do a period drama for the BBC,” says Tom Hardy during our interview sessions early last December for his new eight part drama Taboo.

The show airs its first episode tomorrow night on BBC One and charts the return of James Delaney, described by the actor as a “perverse renaissance man”, to London from his adventures in Africa upon the death of his Father.

He is a man with guilty secrets, and one who gives no quarter to the hostility he encounters from his family and the institutions which seek to hold him to order. As viewers will see tonight the dawn of the Industrial Revolution has been recreated in all its gory, dirty glory. This is a bleak beginning to a story that has an even darker path to tread in future weeks.

What Ryan Gosling Almost Looked Like as Doctor Strange

6 January 2017 9:50 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ryan Gosling had a pretty great year in 2016. He starred in two critically acclaimed movies with The Nice Guys and La La Land, the latter of which he could be getting an Oscar nomination for in the very near future. It is fairly hard to believe things could have been any better for him, but it turns out he was up for the role of Doctor Strange at one point. Enough for Marvel Studios to commission some concept art of him as The Sorcerer Supreme. Lucky for fans, that art has now surfaced online.

The art was done by Court Chu, who said he was hired to do the art quite some time ago. Long before Marvel Studios settled on Benedict Cumberbatch, though, director Scott Derrickson says he was the only actor who was ever really considered for Doctor Strange. Still, at some point Marvel was considering Ryan Gosling and »

See the First Photos From Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard's Mysterious New Netflix Movie

6 January 2017 8:14 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you're done bingeing The Oa and you're looking for a new, mysterious Netflix property to obsess over, Paul Rudd and Alexander Skarsgard are here for you. They star in the streaming giant's latest original film, Mute, which looks like the perfect futuristic thriller to tide us over until Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters. Mute is directed by Warcraft's Duncan Jones and is described as a "spiritual sequel" to his debut sci-fi film, Moon, since it takes place in the same universe. Set in the near future, Leo (Skarsgard) is a mute bartender living in Berlin, whose beautiful girlfriend, Naadirah (Seyneb Saleh), disappears. With the help of two American surgeons (Rudd and Justin Theroux), Leo descends into the city's seedy underbelly in search of his lost love. It won't premiere until sometime later this year (the exact date is still Tbd), but for now, take a peek at the »

Returning Friends

Four movies that transcend the “sequel” label, offering reunions with characters we honestly miss. And, hey, did you notice Ridley Scott and/or Harrison Ford have a connection to three of the four?

T2: Trainspotting

In some ways, Trainspotting is not the type of movie that begs a sequel. The frenetic, scatological story of heroine addicts Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) was hailed as an indie gem when it was released in 1996, and needed no follow-up. But on the other hand, who better to catch up with than those chemical-addled misfits? Have they cleaned themselves up? Have they built enjoyable lives? Director Danny Boyle »

5 January 2017 2:07 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Add Willem Dafoe’s name to the starry cast assembled for 20th Century Fox’s Murder on the Orient Express.

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Dafoe, who will soon be appearing across The Great Wall and next year’s solo Aquaman movie, has landed the role of Gerhard Hardman, a passenger on board the titular vessel who is actually working as an undercover sleuth. That makes him indispensable to one Hercule Poirot, Kenneth Branagh’s lead detective tasked with solving the most puzzling of cases while aboard the titular Orient Express in its journey from Istanbul to Paris.

Based on the cherished 1934 novel by Agatha Christie – first adapted by Sidney Lumet during the ’70s – Fox’s Murder on the Orient Express is an investigation which involves a motley crew of Hollywood talent: Johnny Depp, The Force Awakens breakout Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz, Josh Gad, Judi Dench, Michael Pena, »

‘Arrival’ Editor Joe Walker’s “Super Power” To Manipulate Time

5 January 2017 9:30 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

This time last year, while on the press circuit for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, Oscar-nominated editor Joe Walker had one project to remain tight-lipped about, with the director's follow-up feature, the unusual and elegant sci-fi pic Arrival; and now, with the conclusion of production on Blade Runner 2049 in Budapest, he has another. Coming from a background in sound, Walker not only cut picture, crafting the tension and reworking the film's structure throughout, but also… »

How ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ and ‘Hell or High Water’ Could Find Oscar Success With Male Voters

4 January 2017 2:16 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When it comes to the Academy Awards, voters tend to think highbrow. They like to represent the best, most humane, classiest version of themselves.

But don’t forget the Steak Eaters.

The Academy is full of them. They’re red-blooded males (not just American) — often directors, writers, and craftspeople. They’re the guys who voted for Oscar-winners “Argo,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Braveheart,” “Gladiator,” “Avatar,” and yes, “Crash” over “Brokeback Mountain.”

“They vote for big movies that make big money, good solid moviemaking with great actors and good storytelling,” one veteran Oscar campaigner told me. In recent years, this faction of the Academy voted for mainstream hits such as Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” Clint Eastwood’s “American Sniper,” George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and A.G. Inarritu’s “The Revenant.”

This year, several movies could get a boost from the Steak Eater vote. »

Anyone else out there not excited at the prospect of a new Blade Runner film? I can’t say the idea of old man Deckard fills me with any anticipation for the 32 years later sequel, Blade Runner 2049… And this is coming from someone whose very first VHS purchase was the old “blue-spine” Warner Bros. releases of Blade Runner back in the early 90s.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, Lapd Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos.
