The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs told Variety Thursday, “This is a continuation of an initiative to bring in new voices. Filmmaking has gotten more diverse, and audiences have been responding. There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

17 May 2014 8:39 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Thanks in part to consistent work – including his recent role as Sam “Falcon” Wilson in Captain America: The Winter SoldierAnthony Mackie is in demand at the moment. It appears he may finally get to realise an ambition and play Jimi Hendrix on the big screen, as Ol Parker has come aboard to direct Jimi.The film, once called Crosstown Traffic, was set up a few years ago with Paul Greengrass interested in directing Mackie in a story about the last nine days of the legendary rock star’s life. Back then, the Hendrix estate objected to his portrayal, and the project fell apart. Now, with Parker aboard and the issues seemingly worked out, the renamed Jimi should be gearing up to shoot this year.The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel director Parker has his wife, actress Thandie Newton, ready to co-star and has approached Noomi Rapace about playing the rocker’s ex-girlfriend, »

Awesome Unused 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' IMAX Poster Designs

13 May 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Critics and most general audiences can't seem to agree on the quality of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, but the box office take will still dictate that The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and spin-offs for The Sinister Six and Venom still make it to theaters. As the film still plays in theaters around the world, we've got some cool artwork that almost made it into the hands of fans, but ended up being scrapped in favor of the official Mondo poster released by IMAX for their Fanfix program. Now some of the unused artwork by UK artist Matt Taylor has surfaced online, and they're some pretty cool pieces that we'd still like to have. Look now! Here's Matt Taylor's unused concepts for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 poster from IMAX's blog: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is directed by Marc Webb and written by Jeff Pinker, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

To Better Know a Hero: Ultimate Spider-Man, The Boy Who Slayed A Monster

3 May 2014 7:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Real name:

Peter Benjamin Parker

First Appearance:

Ultimate Spider-Man #1, 2000

Status:

Deceased

Powers and Abilities:

Spider-Man possesses superhuman strength, agility, reflexes, equilibrium, the ability to cling to surfaces, and a sixth sense that warns him of impending danger. However, his Spider-Sense is not as accurate as 616 Spider-Man, as he cannot pinpoint the locations of attacks whereas the 616 version is able to. Peter is an accomplished scientist for his age, with a stated Iq of 145. Spider-Man is also immune to vampirism, a fact Morbius indicates in issue #96, in which Morbius states, after Spider-Man is bitten by a vampire, “You’ve done something to your blood… Your blood cannot feed a night crawler the way normal humans’ blood can.”

Weaknesses:

Despite his strength and agility, the Ultimate Spider-Man’s biggest weakness is his age. While he is still the downtrodden Parker we know from the 616 Universe, Ultimate Spider-Man must deal with adolescence and »

Dad’s Army Reloaded With Toby Jones And Bill Nighy?

28 April 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s still a mainstay of the prime-time schedules some 37 years after it ended, and now it appears Dad’s Army is to be remade for the big screen by the director of the rebooted St Trinian’S.

One of the few series with black and white episodes to enjoy an airing in the digital age, the sitcom acquires new legions of fans each decade, with the BBC licensing mugs, t-shirts and even iPhone covers featuring its elderly cast. Based on Jimmy Perry and David Croft’s Second World War experiences, it followed the frequently shambolic activities of the Home Guard in a sleepy coastal resort.

A movie was made in 1971 by Columbia Pictures featuring the original cast which performed well, but the mix of Hollywood and Walmington-On-Sea received mixed reactions from the critics and the grumpy ensemble cast weren’t happy with the results.

Eisner Award Nominees

16 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Eisner Awards, the "Oscars of Comics" have announced their nominations for the current season (they follow more of a Tony Awards timetable) and the results are heavy on Image comics with Marvel scoring in the top "continuing series" category with the current run of Hawkeye. Maybe there's hope for Jeremy Renner's unloved movie hero after all?  Or maybe not. It's up against last year's winner Saga. 

I want to share two categories that have particular appeal to us here at Tfe. They have an adapted category (which sometimes pulls from movies) and a digital comics category and you know I keep trying to start one though admittedly I never fully commit.

Best Adaptation from Another Medium

The Castle, by Franz Kafka, adapted by David Zane Mairowitz and Jaromír 99 (SelfMadeHero) The Complete Don Quixote, by Miguel de Cervantes, adapted by by Rob Davis (SelfMadeHero) Django Unchained, adapted by Quentin Tarantino, »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gets IMAX Poster, New Release Date and TV Spots

8 April 2014 7:50 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was originally set to be released in the UK on April 18th, but Sony Pictures revealed yesterday that fans will be able to enjoy it a little sooner than that.

To get you in the mood for Marc Webb’s sequel, we also have a new IMAX Mondo poster and a couple of extended TV spots, along with what is apparently the final trailer.

Of course, now that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be released in the UK on April 16th, you may want to avoid seeing any more from the movie until then.

There’s some great new footage in the previews below however, and the poster (by Matt Taylor) is a very nice piece of artwork which would look positively amazing framed and on the wall.

Last Action Heroesc Has the Macho, Action Genre Hit a Low Pointc

1 April 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I didn't quite know how to describe the genre I'm referring to with this post (BoxOfficeMojo doesn't even have a category for it), but suffice to say I'm particularly targeting the films made popular by the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone back in the '80s and more recently it seems Jason Statham had a lock down on things. Now, however, it only seems Liam Neeson can really generate any box-office juice with his cinematic fisticuffs, otherwise it has to be an ensemble or nothing. I ask because ever since Schwarzenegger made his way back to movies after playing Governor for eight years, he's seen The Last Stand, Escape Plan and this past weekend's Sabotage tank at the box office. Similarly, Stallone has seen Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan and Grudge Match bomb at the box office and Statham has seen a string of non-starters including Killer Elite, »

CinemaCon 2014: Footage Revealed for ‘Fast & Furious 7′

25 March 2014 2:14 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There’s no turning back.

Universal Pictures premiered some “Fast & Furious 7” footage at the CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas. Latino-Review was in attendance.

More than half of the film was completed before the accidental death of actor Paul Walker last year. So the footage shown at the convention included Walker and not a double or CGI version of him.

The opening scene was with the entire crew with their vehicles in a cargo plane. They would parachute in their vehicles onto a road in a mountainous area except for Roman Pearce (Tyrese Gibson) who is afraid of heights. But, Tej Parker (Ludacris) attaches a cable to the back of his vehicle and drags his vehicle out of the plane.

There’s a lot of quick montage scenes after that, including a first look at the villain Ian Shaw (Jason Statham) shooting a machine gun into the ceiling. And also the »

Sometimes doing the right thing can get you in a world of trouble, which is illustrated in Swerve, currently available on Blu-ray and DVD. David Lyons stars as Colin, who witnesses a fatal car crash and rescues a beautiful woman named Jina (Emma Booth), along with a briefcase full of cash. Despite his best intentions, Colin is forced to go on the run with Jina from her husband (Jason Clarke), a corrupt cop, and a deadly criminal (Travis McMahon). We have an exclusive clip from this thriller, where Colin tries to get the truth out of Jina while hiding out on a train.

While driving cross-country to a job interview, Colin (David Lyons, TV's Revolution, Eat, Pray, Love) witnesses a two-car crash that leaves one driver decapitated.

Meet G. Willow Wilson, the Muslim Woman Revolutionizing Superhero Comics

20 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Superhero comics are built on amazing feats: flying, climbing walls, transforming into a giant green monster while somehow keeping your purple shorts on. But G. Willow Wilson has done something even Superman never bothered to do: create a female Muslim superhero and turn her into an overnight marketing sensation.Wilson writes Ms. Marvel, a monthly Marvel Comics series that debuted in February. It stars Kamala Khan, a 16-year-old child of Pakistani immigrants living in Jersey City (well, the Marvel universe’s version of Jersey City, where Iron Man, Captain America, and the like battle bad guys just across the Hudson). Kamala is a hero in the Peter Parker tradition: dweeby, self-doubting, unpopular. Like so many of today’s teen geeks, she spends her nights resenting her parents and writing fan fiction for online forums. A bizarre incident leaves Kamala with shapeshifting powers, and even though we’re only on issue No. »
