New Projects: ‘The Comedian’, Prince Charming, and Muppets

10 July 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Robert De Niro has been gearing up what’s been known as his “passion project” for some time, a film called The Comedian in which he would play an insult comic modeled off Don Rickles. De Niro has now secured a director for the film, Taylor Hackford (Ray, Parker). Deadline exclusively reported that Hackford came on board after director Mike Newell departed due to scheduling, and that casting for the film is now underway.

Roast comic Jeff Ross wrote all of De Niro’s stand-up material for the film, and the screenplay was penned by Art Linson, who previously wrote De Niro’s What Just Happened and has produced everything from Fight Club to The Untouchables to Into the Wild. It’ll be interesting to see De Niro take on the role, because it’s perhaps most closely similar to his underrated, almost cult performance as Rupert Pupkin in Martin Scorsese »

Taylor Hackford Directing Robert De Niro’s Passion Project The Comedian

7 July 2015 12:39 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Robert De Niro is so widely respected in Hollywood that he could really do anything he wants at this stage in his career. To the Oscar winner’s credit, though, he’s not rolling over and taking easy paycheck roles all the time – for years, De Niro has been pushing to get The Comedian made, with an eye to starring in the Art Linson-penned drama. And now, he’ll finally complete that passion project, having recruited Taylor Hackford to direct the pic.

De Niro will take on the role of a self-destructive, acerbic insult comic inspired partly by comedian Don Rickles (De Niro’s co-star in Casino). It won’t be the actor’s first time playing a professional funnyman – he took on the role of aspiring comedian Rupert Pupkin to widespread acclaim in The King of Comedy.

Excitingly, though Linson (known for the De Niro-starring, Hollywood-set What Just Happened? »

Netflix Announces Release Dates for Idris Elba’s ‘Beasts of No Nation,’ Adam Sandler Comedy

7 July 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix will roll out a batch of new movies this year, including Cary Fukunaga’s “Beasts of No Nation” and “The Ridiculous Six” with Adam Sandler, as it tries to establish itself as a force in the feature film business.

With a ripped-from-the-headlines plot about child soldiers, “Beasts of No Nation” is looking to generate awards heat, scoring a key Oscar contender berth on October 16, 2015. It will go head to head with other awards hopeful “Bridge of Spies,” a Cold War thriller from Steven Spielberg, the horror film “Crimson Peak” and the family film “Goosebumps.” Idris Elba stars in the film, which Fukunaga, hot off “True Detective,” directs. It set off a bidding war that saw Netflix shell out $12 million for the rights.

The film debuts worldwide on Netflix, in all territories where the internet platform is available, and on the same day in whichever U.S. theaters will play it. »

Daredevil or the Flash: Which Had the Best Debut Season of A Comic Book TV Show?

4 July 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 In their freshman year, Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil series and DC’s CW show the Flash got some of the most overwhelmingly positive reviews of any TV shows ever based on super heroes. They are arguably the two best debut seasons for shows adapted from a comic book.  Which one is better? Cinelinx looks at these two excellent shows to determine the live action small screen comic champ.

 There have been lots and lots of live action TV programs based on comic books, starting with the Adventures of Superman in the 1950s. Ever since then,  we’ve had Batman, the Green Hornet, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Shazam/Isis, Superboy, the Flash (the original), Lois & Clark: the New Adventures of SupermanBirds of Prey, Mutant X, Smallville, Agents of Shield, Arrow, Constantine and Gotham. (We’re not including animated series in this.) We’ve even had one-shot TV movies like Dr. Strange, »

Ranking the Fast & Furious movies from worst to best

29 March 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

14 years after it first hit the big screen in 2001, the Vin Diesel and Paul Walker-led Fast & Furious franchise has gone from strength-to-strength, earning more than $2.3 billion at the worldwide box office.

Originally based around illegal street racing, the Fast movies have evolved to become big, bombastic entertainment with larger-than-life characters and gravity-defying stunts. But underneath it all these are also films about family, with Diesel, Walker, Jordana Brewster and Michelle Rodriguez's characters the heartbeat of the series.

With Fast & Furious 7 due out on April 3, Digital Spy's Fast experts Tom Eames, Morgan Jeffery and Simon Reynolds went back through them all to come up with a definitive ranking from worst to best.

7. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)

It's quite amazing that the Fast & Furious franchise survived at all after its misjudged sequel. Only Paul Walker remained for its second outing, which focused more on the street racing than the characters »

1 March 2015 12:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“Who gets to stand for something and still make people laugh and feel something at the same time?” said “Glee” star Alex Newell on the carpet at Saturday night’s Family Equality Council awards dinner at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The answer? The casts of “Glee” and “Modern Family,” both honored at the event for doing just that.

At the 11th annual awards dinner, the Family Equality Council honored the two series for their impact in advancing cultural conversation about Lgbtq (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender questioning) families, and also paid tribute to Mayor Annise Parker of Houston, Texas, and the brand Honey Maid, for their “This Is Wholesome” campaign.

Sandra Bernhard hosted the event, opening the evening with a performance alongside her band, and telling stories riffing on her daughter. The dinner – part fundraiser, part celebration – shed light on Lgbtq families and the work being done to grant them »

The Boy Next Door review: JLo's erotic thriller is an accidental comedy

27 February 2015 8:44 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Rob Cohen; Screenwriter: Barbara Curry; Starring: Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, Kristin Chenoweth, John Corbett, Ian Nelson; Running time: 91 mins; Certificate: 15

She sings, she dances, she's on the American Idol judging panel and, on the odd occasion, she acts. Considering the super-busy Jennifer Lopez only makes a film once every couple of years (her last screen outing was 2013's second-tier Statham vehicle Parker), you'd think she'd be a little more discerning in her choice of roles. After watching the abysmal Boy Next Door, that red-hot breakthrough in Out of Sight feels firmly out of mind.

Her latest has aspirations to be the kind of slick and stylish adult thriller popularised in the '80s and '90s, but ends up imploding thanks to a clunky script, off-key performances and a tone that swings wildly between ultra-serious and camp comedy. If Gone Girl was the perfect example of how to make »

25 January 2015 3:36 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Coming off a very surprising opening, American Sniper reinforced its status as a box office heavyweight by scoring one of the biggest second weekends ever.With over $200 million in the bank already, Sniper is now on track to be the highest-grossing movie from 2014 (it opened in New York and Los Angeles on Christmas Day). Among the new releases, Jennifer Lopez's The Boy Next Door got off to a decent start, while Mortdecai and Strange Magic were dead on arrival.Expanding to 3,705 locations*the widest release ever for an R-rated movie*American Sniper added $64.6 million this weekend. That ranks eighth all-time among second weekends, ahead of movies like The Dark Knight Rises, The Hunger Games and The Passion of the Christ.That $64.6 million tally is off just 28 percent from the movie's opening frame, which is the best second weekend hold ever for a movie that opened above $80 million.With fantastic »

Box Office Report: American Sniper Holds Strongly At #1, Mortdecai Flops

25 January 2015 12:03 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

American Sniper continued its sensational box office run, dropping a mild 28% on its sophomore weekend to earn an estimated $64.4 million and fending off competition from a trio of new releases. The R-rated Oscar nominee is clearly benefitting from exceptional word-of-mouth and buzz. While the opening last week was incredible, its small drop this week was even more impressive, indicating that the film stands a good chance at being the #1 highest-grossing film of the year in North America. (Who would have thought that halfway through 2014? Nobody. And, technically, due to its platform run beginning on Christmas Day, the film is a 2014 release.)

The Bradley Cooper-led drama also amassed the eighth-largest second weekend of all-time. All seven films that had bigger second weekend takes surpassed the $400 million mark. While that is not a guarantee for Sniper, it should handily surpass the final grosses of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and Guardians of the Galaxy, »

‘American Sniper’ Shoots Past $200M, ‘Mortdecai’ Nosedives At $4.1M – Sunday Final

25 January 2015 7:43 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Final Update, Sunday Am: Warner Bros. is reporting that American Sniper will raise its domestic cume to $200.1M through Sunday after a massive $64.4M weekened at 3,705 theaters, the third-highest weekend ever in January, behind Sniper’s opening last weekend, and Avatar’s third Fss of $68.5M.

That figure, should it hold into tomorrow, marks a mere 28-percent slip – the best second-week hold for a wide release ever for a film that debuted with more than $85M. Previous to this, the best big debuts to hold an audience were 2004’s Shrek 2 (down 33 percent in its second frame) and 2002’s Spider-Man (down 38 percent). American Sniper is marching toward $300M, a mark only six Warner Bros. films have passed.

“Many exhibitors are hearing from their theater managers that the infrequent moviegoers who go only two to three times a year, are coming out to see this movie,” said Warner Bros. distribution chief Dan Fellman. »

Forecast: 'Sniper' to Easily Fight Off Weak Competition This Weekend

22 January 2015 4:03 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Three new wide releases hit theaters this weekend, though none of them have the slightest chance of taking first place away from American Sniper.Among those new releases, The Boy Next Door seems to have the edge; the Jennifer Lopez thriller should wind up in second place with at least $15 million. Meanwhile, Mortdecai and Strange Magic will likely wind up below $10 million.American Sniper opened to a stunning $89.3 million last weekend, which ranks second all-time for an R-rated movie behind The Matrix Reloaded. It has also held well through the week*its $7.55 million Wednesday haul is very impressive*which is usually a good indicator of a strong second weekend.To help meet the high demand, American Sniper is expanding to 3,705 theaters, which is the widest release ever for an R-rated movie. Based on the mid-week performance, it's likely that the movie earns at least $50 million this weekend. If it gets closer to $60 million, »
