Darren Aronofsky to Produce ‘White Boy Rick’ Movie With Drug Dealer’s Cooperation

24 April 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Darren Aronofsky and Scott Franklin of Protozoa Pictures are set to produce a movie about “White Boy Rick” Wershe, the former drug kingpin from Detroit who has agreed to help the filmmakers tell his incredible story, TheWrap has learned. Franklin will be the lead producer for his and Aronofsky’s Protozoa Pictures, which is currently out to directors. Aronofsky has not set a follow-up to last year’s biblical epic “Noah.” Andrew Weiss wrote the script with input from Wershe, who was just a teenager when he began trafficking cocaine throughout the Motor City.

The Water Diviner | Review

24 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Turkey Dressing: Crowe’s Well-Intentioned Debut Ultimately Mundane

In the comparable tradition of Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner, actor Russell Crowe makes a big budget, historically relevant directorial debut with The Water Diviner, a World War I Australian drama. As penned by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios, both writers accustomed to writing almost exclusively for television, the film’s significance is straightjacketed into a garden variety of manipulative clichés, replete with an unnecessary and oddly provoked romance that ends an otherwise workmanlike tale of woe on a sour note.

Beginning in 1919 Australia, well-digger Joshua Connor (Crowe) lives alone with his wife (Jacqueline McKenzie), using his powers of water divining (basically a concept where a stick or similar apparatus is used to steer a user toward a water source—often called water witching) to continue their idyllic farm. All is not well with the Connor’s, as he comes home to »

'Point Break' Remake First Pictures, Bracey and Ramirez are Utah and Bodhi

22 April 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string »

First Photos From Point Break Are Here

21 April 2015 9:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released new photos of Edgar Ramirez as Bodhi and Luke Bracey as Johnny Utah in Point Break.

In the film, a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill-seeking elite athletes – led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a spate of crimes in extremely unusual ways.

Deep undercover, and with his life in imminent danger, Utah strives to prove they are the architects of this string of inconceivable crimes.

The film stars Édgar Ramírez (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “Carlos the Jackal”) as Bodhi, and Luke Bracey (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “November Man”) as Johnny Utah, along with Ray Winstone (“Noah,” “The Departed”), Teresa Palmer (“Warm Bodies”) and Delroy Lindo (“Sahara,” “Gone in Sixty Seconds”).

Point Break is directed by Ericson Core (“Invincible”) from a screenplay by Kurt Wimmer (“Salt,” “Law Abiding Citizen”).

The stunt performers include surfers Laird Hamilton, »

Interview: Talking 'The Water Diviner' with Russell Crowe

21 April 2015 6:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Academy Award winner Russell Crowe makes his directorial debut on 'The Water Diviner,' an epic and inspiring tale of one man's life changing journey of discovery. Crowe also stars in the film as Australian farmer Joshua Connor, who four years after the bloody Battle of Gallipoli, risk his own life to search for his three beloved sons, who never returned home from the war. With seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his path, Connor embarks on an emotionally charged and dangerous trek across the battle scarred Turkish landscape to find the truth and perhaps his own peace. The films international cast also includes Olga Kurylenko, Yilmaz Erdogan, Jai Courtney, and Isabel Lucas

Russell Crowe Looks to Directing, for Himself and for Australia

20 April 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Russell Crowe’s “The Water Diviner” might be seen as just another film struggling to get a look from American audiences during a spring movie season dominated by the latest installments in the “Avengers” and “Furious” franchises.

But for the film community Down Under, and especially first-time director Crowe, the war epic amounts to something much larger – another chance for Australia to reassert itself as a maker of mass-appeal films and for the actor to shift from leading man to the man leading production.

Crowe did not try to downplay the stakes — or his ambition, at age 51, to shift at least a portion of his career to behind the camera — in an interview before the film’s American premiere last week.

“That’s the gamble, man. It’s three years of my life. And that’s what’s on the line,” he said outside the Tcl Chinese Theater. “The two »

10 Things You Need To Know About Darren Aronofsky’s Batman

15 April 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

DC

You wanna watch out for that Darren Aronofsky. He might just surprise you. After a good couple of decades making grim, magical realist dramas like Requiem For A Dream and Black Swan, he was surrounded by rumours that he was due to direct either/or the second Wolverine film or that ill-fated Robocop remake. In the end he did neither: instead, he did a big-budget retelling of Noah And The Great Flood, in a way that displeased the faithful and was of no interest to his usual audience.

That seemed like something of a left-turn for the auteur director, but it was on the cards for a good while before. Because, not so far back in the mists of time, Aronofsky was approached with an even stranger proposition. Warner Bros were floundering in the wake of their critically and commercially disappointing Batman sequels, eventually canning Joel Schumacher’s plans for another total camp-fest. »

The Water Diviner movie review: magic unrealism

8 April 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

When director Crowe sticks to historical adventure, his film is tense and exciting. But it lacks a sense of magic that it needs to make it fully engaging. I’m “biast” (pro): love Russell Crowe

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

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

In 1919, four years after the disastrous Australian defeat at the Wwi battle of Gallipoli, a father travels to the Ottoman Empire hoping to find his lost sons. It’s sorta like Saving Private Ryan, except the soldiers to be found are dead, and the stack of needles farmer Connor (Russell Crowe: Noah, Winter’s Tale) has to search for his needles is the battle-scarred landscape upon which are scattered the long-dead bones of the 10,000 Australians — and 70,000 Turks — who were killed there.

How does Connor propose to accomplish such an impossible task? »

Jupiter Ascending Blu-Ray Gets Detailed and Dated

6 April 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Wachowski's latest science fiction adventure, Jupiter Ascending, may not have lit up the box office, but there was still plenty of fun for movie-goers willing to give it a chance.  Today, Warner Bros. have announced details on the film's blu-ray release, including a date and special features, so you can check it out at home!

While I didn't "love" Jupiter Ascending as much as I wanted to, I didn't hate the film either.  It has a lot of great elements behind it, with impressive visuals and characters you want to know more about.  While I wish it had been paced differently, I don't exactly get all the hatred the movie gets either.  I thought it was still a lot of fun, and if you skipped out on it, I think it's worth watching when it hits blu-ray on June 2.  Check out the features coming on the disc when it »

Clint Mansell Set to Score Ben Wheatley's Adaptation of 'High Rise'

3 April 2015 2:00 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The last feature film score that composer Clint Mansell delivered was for Darren Aronofsky's Noah, and it was certainly one of the finer points in of the Biblical epic. Before that, he delivered the haunting scores for Stoker as well as music for the thriller Filth. But otherwise, he's laid pretty low key, and isn't working as frequently as some of his colleagues. But coming up we're likely to get some magnificent work from Mansell as Film Music Reporter (via SlashFilm) reports that he will be composing the score for High Rise, the adaptation of J.G. Ballard's novel of the same name from Kill List and Sightseers director Ben Wheatley. The composer himself confirmed the news on Twitter and is thrilled with the response: Blown away by the love shown to my involvement with @mr_wheatley & #HighRise It means a lot to me and I'll do my best to not fuck it up! »

31 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Shrouded in shadows, Doom-Head is featured in creepy fashion in the first still from Rob Zombie's 31. Also included in our latest round-up is a casting update for the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and an exclusive excerpt from Doug Lavers’ sci-fi thriller, Rekindling of Hope.

Rob Zombie's 31: Played by Richard Brake, Doom-Head dominates the first official still from Rob Zombie's 31 (see below). Since the news broke earlier this month that Malcolm McDowell had joined the cast of 31 as Father Murder, more actors have joined the film's ranks:

Pancho Moler (2005's Bad News Bears, American Horror Story: Freak Show) plays Sick-Head. Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show."

The trials of Russell Crowe: pranked by Jacko, goaded by paparazzi, threatened by al-Qaida

29 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

He is famously combative when it comes to the press and the public. But is Russell Crowe more sinned against than sinning? As he happily promotes his directorial debut The Water Diviner, he sets the record straight

Russell Crowe’s publicist has two pieces of information she wishes to impart before I’m ushered into the actor’s hotel suite. The first is a warning that Crowe “may be smoking” during the interview, about which I couldn’t care less, beyond wondering how much it is costing him to have a ciggie. Clearly whatever eye-watering charges Claridge’s levies against those who break the hotel’s smoking ban are but a mere bagatelle to the highest-paid actor in the world – one who has reportedly earned $82m (£55m) at the box office in the past year. The second is that Crowe is “on good form, very talkative”. It’s said brightly, »

Flickering Myth Podcast Review – The Gunman (2015)

The Flickering Myth Podcast grabs some guns…

On today’s episode of the Flickering Myth Podcast, Luke Owen, Scott Davis and Rohan Morbey sit down to give their thoughts on Sean Penn’s attempt at “doing a Liam Neeson” with The Gunman, from the director of Taken. The trilogy also discuss the idea of having older action stars and whether this fad is over before its started in the wake of The Gunman bombing at the box office.

Sean Penn’s The Gunman bombs at the box office

23 March 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since the release of Taken in 2009, it seems that older actors are trying to jump on board the action train. Sean Penn’s The Gunman is the next stop, but his first attempt has not been overly successful.

Opening to very middling reviews (the film currently holds 14% on Rotten Tomatoes and 39 on Metacritic), The Gunman has opened to just $5 million domestically with no word yet on how it did internationally. The reported budget for the film is $40 million, so this is undoubtedly unfortunate news for the various production companies who financed the movie.

See Also: Movie Review – The Gunman (2015)

This puts The Gunman on par with other 2015 box office flops Mortdecai, Blackhat, Unfinished Business and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and is a fraction of what 3 Days to Kill made last year on its opening weekend – perhaps showing that the popularity of this subgenre has started to fall already. »
