Timeless Clothing: Michael Wilkinson talks about Noah

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Michael Wilkinson about weaving a new adaptation of an epic Biblical story…

“There was an opening in my schedule,” recalls Michael Wilkinson who had completed the costume designs for Man of Steel (2013) when an opportunity arose to work on Noah (2014) helmed by Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan).  “My agents introduced me to Darren who was looking for someone to help design this epic movie.  I had a series of Skype interviews, was awarded the job and headed over to New York to work with him.”  The native of Australia remarks, “I always like to have images in front of me when I’m meeting a director.  Other costume designers do things differently.  For me, it’s all about beginning to see if there’s a dialogue that flows between the two parties.  Even if I show images that are wildly different from what the director was thinking »

Box office brief: Will Christian audiences turn out for 'Heaven Is for Real'?

17 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It’s no secret that Christian-themed films have the potential to be box office gold, but even though faith-based audiences are starved for more material, it doesn’t always pan out the way studios might hope.

While Paramount’s expensive and provocative Darren Aronofsky-directed Noah continues to climb the steep slope toward domestic profitability and Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s Son of God failed to reach Passion of the Christ heights (after seven weeks in theaters it still hasn’t even made Passion’s opening weekend numbers), the independently released God’s Not Dead came out of nowhere »

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in new Jupiter Ascending still

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Total Film, we’ve got a new still from The Matrix duo Andy and Lana Wachowski’s next sci-fi offering Jupiter Ascending, which gives us a fresh look at the film’s two leads, Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street) and Mila Kunis (Ted)…

Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Jupiter Ascending is set for release on July 25th, »

Exclusive: Michael Wilkinson talks about costume designing, Zack Snyder, Watchmen & Batman vs. Superman

14 April 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“I take each project as they come,” explains Michael Wilkinson who received an Oscar nomination for costume designing American Hustle (2013).  “I would never say as a rule that I don’t do this type of film.  For me I read the script.  If there’s something about it I find challenging that I’ve never done before or if there’s a director I greatly admire attached or actors I’ve always wanted to work with those are the different types of criteria that I use when choosing my next job.”  Wilkinson has been involved with projects as varied as Babel (2006), 300 (2006), Tron: Legacy (2010), Noah (2014), and currently Batman vs. Superman (2016).  “I don’t what it is about me.  Maybe it’s because I have a short attention span.  I like to mix things up.  I like to show the world that I’m not just a superhero or sword and sandals »

Hollywood’s Growing Faith in Christian Movies

14 April 2014 6:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sony’s Christian drama “Heaven Is for Real,” which opens Wednesday, is the latest offering in a year with an uncommonly large slate of religious-themed wide releases.

Although there’s long been a robust DVD market and numerous indie releases, more major studios have been taking a leap of faith and embarking on extensive marketing missions this year. It’s only fitting that the senior production exec for “Heaven Is for Real,” DeVon Franklin, is an ordained minister and one of the film’s producers, T.D. Jakes, is a bishop. Jakes has teamed up with “Alice in Wonderland” producer Joe Roth for the project.

“My hope is that it’s going to appeal to the same demographic of the book, which was in the mainstream,” said Franklin, the author of spiritual success book “Produced by Faith.”

“But at the same time,” he adds, “(the story) really had a strong faith-based following. »

Take That, Grumpy Cat! 2014 MTV Movie Awards Host Conan O’Brien Is A Nick Lachey Fan

14 April 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

Conan O’Brien hosted the 2014 MTV Movie Awards last night. The great ginger brought his trademark wit, 50 very special celebrity cameos, and a shout out to Big Morning Buzz Live‘s Nick Lachey to the show. Our guy, Nick Lachey got to sit down with Conan this morning (Yes, It Was This Morning) on Big Morning Buzz Live to discuss the show and to get the inside scoop on whether or not Nick Lachey is the greatest Nick of all.

A good MTV Movie Awards host has many roles to fill. He or she has to funny, hip and ready to schmooze the celebrities. O’Brien took this last part to the next level when he gave himself the challenge to feature 50 celebrity cameos in the show’s cold open. O’Brien got the help of Taylor Swift, Lupita Nyong’o and the cast of Noah (amongst others) to help him meet this goal. »

Revisiting That 'Narrative Exhaustion' Thing Thanks To Ari Handel's Explanation For The Lack Of P.O.C. In 'Noah'

14 April 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Sergio's piece published earlier this morning, on Ari Handel (co-screenwriter of Darren Aronofsky's Noah) giving his reasons for the lack of people of color in that recently-released film, reminded me of as item I penned a few months ago, waxing on the shortsightedness and laziness of the privileged - specifically, the white heterosexual men who run Hollywood - and the ramifications of those seemingly unconscious deficiencies, with regards to the rest of us. I posit that Handel's baffling response to the question of Noah's lack of diversity, is simply just another example of that shortsightedness and laziness that comes from being in a position of privilege. As Sergio said in his »

Co-Screenwriter of 'Noah' Explains Why There Are No Black People Or Poc In The Film

14 April 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

O.K. let’s see if this makes sense. No doubt, one of the most talked about films so far this year is Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. The film has gotten its share of rave reviews, though there are those who have major problems with it. However, one cannot deny that it is truly an ambitious, unique and original film - the kind of risk-taking movie you wish Hollywood would make more of, like they used to.However, there is that one thing; That one thing that stuck out in my mind when I saw the film: “Hey, where are the black folks or people of color in the film?” If this film had been made back during the epic "Biblical film" era, in the 1950s, well then, yes, you would expect that. But even »

Lusty debuts by Divergent, Grand Budapest Hotel

13 April 2014 6:57 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Kids and families flocked to The Lego Movie and the Captain America sequel while teenagers embraced Divergent and adults checked into The Grand Budapest Hotel last weekend.

All told it was a buoyant frame as nationwide takings improved by 6% to $18.25 million and six titles each earned more than $1 million.

Animated comedy The Lego Movie eased by 10% to $5.1 million in its second weekend, propelling its haul to $14.4 million, according to Rentrak.s estimates. The Village Roadshow Pictures/Warner Bros. co-production looks set to reach $28 million, if not $30 million, and the worldwide cume hit $US425 million.

Superhero adventure Captain America: The Winter Soldier grabbed $3.6 million despite falling by 40%, to elevate its 11-day total to $12.2 million. However the Marvel franchise isn.t tracking as strongly here as in the Us, where the film starring Chris Pine, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel J. Jackson has rung up $US159 million in 10 days.

MTV Movie Awards: Director Troy Miller explains how Conan O'Brien scored those 50 cameos for the opener -- Exclusive

13 April 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When you’re hosting the MTV Movie Awards and promise viewers “The Biggest One You’ll Ever See,” opening with any old been-there-done-that monologue is no longer an option. Conan O’Brien was acutely aware of that challenge when he opted to attempt the Movie Awards’ boldest coup yet and score 50 celebrity cameos within the first five minutes of the show.

As you’ve now seen, O’Brien managed to pull off the feat. But he didn’t do it alone. Director Troy Miller tells EW how MTV assembled this “whirlwind of a celebrity-fest” (full list at bottom), which included appearances by Taylor Swift, »

Weekend Report: 'Captain America' Wins Close Fight with 'Rio 2'... >

13 April 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

In a strange turn of events, Rio 2 took first place at the box office on Friday, but fell back to second place for the three-day weekend. Chalk this up to nice weather throughout most of the country, which kept family audiences away from the multiplexes on Saturday.As a result, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was able to narrowly hold on to the top spot for the second-straight weekend. The superhero sequel added $41.3 million, which was off 57 percent from its debut. That's about on par with Iron Man 3 (58 percent) and Thor: The Dark World (57 percent), but it's also a bit worse than the movie's strong reviews and word-of-mouth would suggest. So far, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has earned $158.9 million at the domestic box office. If it remains on pace with the Thor and Iron Man sequels, it will finish with at least $225 million.Playing at 3,948 locations, Rio 2 »

Darren Aronofsky's Noah signals the unwelcome return of the bloated passion project

11 April 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

'As directors gain independence from the studios, their movies invariably became longer, looser and more insufferable'

As the reviews for the $200m Transformers sequels have proved, movies are not what they cost. And yet, for many directors, freedom from financial constraint remains the ultimate goal. In 1970s "New Hollywood", critically revered film-makers such as Francis Ford Coppola had carte blanche to push the budgets of their masterworks ever skyward. That is, until Michael Cimino's 1980 uberflop Heaven's Gate, which earned just over $3m from a budget of $44m, forced studio execs to reconsider the filmmaker's divine right. A-list directors have been fighting to see a return to those heady days ever since, while passion project after passion project has gone unmade. But with Darren Aronofsky's $125m biblical epic Noah now in cinemas, the climate may finally be changing.

Social Media Buzz: ‘Rio 2′ to Fly High Above Box Office

11 April 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Does digital data offer indicators that can be used to monitor marketing effectiveness and predict box office success even before awareness turns into intent? We analyzed this weekend’s new movies across Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Google (the methodology behind the numbers is below) over the seven days leading up to their release, when marketing campaigns should be at their peak.

Rio 2

After a weekend where competitors ran for cover under the onslaught of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” three movies launch this weekend aiming to draw attention from beyond the young male audience. “Rio 2″ arrives three years after the original which opened to $39.2 million and social data suggests this sequel is set for a strong performance.

Rio 2″ will be looking to appeal specifically to family audiences, and that dictates using marketing platforms in a different way. While a large TV presence is intended to garner interest »

Our pick of the Noah star's greatest performances to date. Would others would you add to the list?

Russell Crowe, the go-to actor for a certain distinct type of alpha male role, was understandably top of the list when Darren Aronofsky was casting for Noah, bringing to his performance a panoply of "teeth, spittle and changeable hair arrangements."

Here's our pick of Crowe's greatest performances to date. Would others would you add to the list?

Vatican newspaper slams Noah movie as 'lost opportunity' that ignores God

11 April 2014 3:56 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Star Russell Crowe lobbied Pope Francis to watch movie, but visit to Rome did not win his endorsement for Genesis epic

Noah rest: Russell Crowe goes from pope to Archbishop of Canterbury

The official Vatican newspaper, L'Avennire, has labelled Darren Aronofsky's Noah a "missed opportunity" which ignores God, but stopped short of calling for a boycott of the controversial biblical epic.

Its reviewer criticised Aronofksy for veering too far from the account of Noah in the book of Genesis in a verdict published on Thursday ahead of the film's Italian debut. In comments translated by the Hollywood Reporter, the critic also labelled the movie "strange" and "perplexing" while admitting that it represented a "visually potent" piece.

Noah: Vatican newspaper blasts "missed opportunity"

10 April 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Vatican has blasted Darren Aronofsky's Noah in its affiliated newspaper.

The review in Avvenire (via The Hollywood Reporter) has declared the Biblical film a "missed opportunity".

The review described the film as "a lost opportunity, Noah without God", and "ecologically, and vaguely New Age, transforming the Biblical tale into a missed chance".

The article is the first response from the Catholic Church to the film, which star Russell Crowe urged Pope Francis to watch.

The film reimagines the tale of the Flood from the Book of Genesis with a cast that also includes Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly and Logan Lerman.

In a case of life imitating art, a screening of Noah in Exeter was cancelled last week due to flooding.
