Highlights From the 2014 TCM Classic Film Festival

14 April 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Film Festival wrapped up its 5th annual hoorah in Hollywood on Sunday and this year was chock full of joyful and exciting films and special guests. There were so many wonderful old movies that most people have seen, but for me the true thrill was the chance to see a beloved movie on the big screen, the way it was intended.

Throw in some amazing guests and it was absolute gold.

Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book (1967)

Screened at the beautiful El Capitan Theater, The Jungle Book was the last Disney animated feature that was overseen by Walt Disney himself. After the success of Mary Poppins and other Disney hits such as The Parent Trap, The Absent Minded Professor and The Sword in the Stone, Disney went back to the well and asked songwriters Bobby and Richard Sherman to take a swing at its animated »

The Love Punch Review

14 April 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Though narrowly – and somewhat unfairly – missing out on an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of P.L. Travers in the brilliant Saving Mr. Banks, British actress Emma Thompson now returns with something a little lighter, but by no means more entertaining, as she stars alongside Pierce Brosnan in Joel Hopkins’ comedy caper, The Love Punch.

Thompson plays Kate, who after waving her daughter off to university, is on the end of a shock visit from her former husband, Richard (Brosnan). Though still on regular speaking terms, spending a lot of time together is something they haven’t done for a good long while – but when Richard claims that a conniving French businessman (Laurent Lafitte) is screwing them both out of their pensions and life savings, they jump on the next place to pay him a visit. As expected, the arrogant tycoon plays hardball, and so the pair are forced to concoct a plan, »

New Grimlock still from Transformers: Age of Extinction, Michael Bay confirms new trilogy and speaks on Shia Labeouf

11 April 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we’ve got a great new shot of the fan favourite Dinobot Grimlock, who is set to make his live-action debut this summer in Paramount Pictures’ sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction

Meanwhile, speaking to EW, director Michael Bay has spoken about the upcoming movie, stating that, “It’s kind of like a new Transformers. It’s the first of a new trilogy. I’m not necessarily sure that I’m doing [the others], but that’s what it’s meant for.”

Bay also went on to discuss the decision to go with an entirely new cast, with Mark Wahlberg (Pain & Gain) taking on the lead after three movies with Shia Labeouf:

“It’s all good. [Labeouf] is a good guy, but three movies, the same guy, it’s time, you know what I’m saying. It’s always good to freshen it up and change the story… It »

‘Frozen’ Trumps ‘Anchorman 2′ to Keep No. 1 Spot on Home Video Sales Charts

9 April 2014 5:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount’s “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” gave it a good try, but the sequel to the 2004 comedy about a full-of-himself San Diego newscaster couldn’t topple Walt Disney’s “Frozen” from the top of the national home video sales charts for the week ended April 6.

The animated feature remained at No. 1 for the third consecutive week on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Anchorman 2,” meanwhile, debuted at No. 3 on both charts, behind Disney’s direct-to-video “The Pirate Fairy,” the fifth computer-animated film in the DisneyToon Studios’ Tinker Bell film series.

Nielsen data shows that even in its third week of release, “Frozen” sold twice as many copies as “Anchorman 2,” which just came out on disc after earning $127.4 million in U.S. theaters – nearly 50% more than the original. »

Transformers 5 set for release in 2017?

9 April 2014 2:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re still a few months away from Transformers: Age of Extinction, but Paramount Pictures must be confident that Michael Bay will continue the run of blockbuster financial success when he retools the franchise with the fourth instalment. According to a piece of promotional material from licensing company Vilsco Textiles (via SlashFilm), the studio has slotted Transformers 5 in for release in 2017… which shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise given we’ve already had announcements for several major tentpole flicks for 2017, 2018 and beyond.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is set for release on June 27th, with Mark Wahlberg (Ted) leading a cast that also includes Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel), Bingbing Li (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J.

DVD Review: 'Saving Mr. Banks'

8 April 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★Set in and around the 1964 production of Disney's classic Mary Poppins, Saving Mr. Banks (2013) stars Emma Thompson as author, P.L. Travers and Tom Hanks as Walt Disney himself. The film depicts the author's 1961 visit to Los Angeles as she is relentlessly pursued by Disney, in his attempt to obtain the rights to adapt her popular novel. Directed by John Lee Hancock, the film explores the origins of Mary Poppins, adding a new dimension to the world's most famous flying nanny and her creator. After reluctantly agreeing to meet Walt Disney, prim and proper Travers flies from her London home to Los Angeles to discuss the possibility of a big screen adaptation.

Disney Pacts With Spain’s Atresmedia Television

7 April 2014 12:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Re-upping on a stable relationship. Disney Spain has inked a multi-year movie volume deal with Atresmedia Television, one of Spain’s two biggest broadcast network groups.

Titles in the pact are “The Avengers, “The Lone Ranger,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Planes,” and “Saving Mr. Banks,” among others.

Disney movies sit well with Atresmedia’s predominantly family-skewed demos. While many broadcasters in Europe have scaled back on movies, Atresmedia has made big film titles one of its defining hallmarks: Further movies in the Atresmedia hopper include “Argo,” “The Bourne Legacy,” ”The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” and “Skyfall.”

Spain’s crisis has also increased grid-time for bought in product, at the expense of costlier in-house fiction.

Hit by still weak consumer demand in Spain, TV ad spend in Spain plunged 8% year-on-year to around €1.65 billion ($2.3 billion) in 2013, 53% off its pre-crisis 2007 peak, per a Barlovento Comunicacion year-in-review study.

‘Frozen’ Beats ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ to Remain at Top of Home Video Sales Charts

2 April 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney Studios’ “Frozen” remained at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts for the second consecutive week, despite the release of three high-profile newcomers.

Paramount’s “The Wolf of Wall Street,” the acclaimed Martin Scorsese drama about corruption and excess in the world of finance, fared best out of the three, debuting at No. 2 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

But even then, “Frozen” in its second week of availability still outsold “Wolf” by a margin of more than 3 to 1 during the week ending March 30, Nielsen data shows.

The two other new releases that arrived in stores the same day as “Wolf” didn’t generate nearly the buzz, nor the box office, of Scorsese’s latest.

Walking with Dinosaurs: The Movie,” from 20th Century Fox, debuted at No. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emma Thompson Get Cheeky at London’s Empire Awards

31 March 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A talent downpour stormed Grosvenor House’s ballroom Sunday with the annual Empire Awards in London.

Who would win the Hero Award? There sat the Austrian Oak, Arnold Schwarzenegger, a traditional favorite. Or perhaps, Hugh Jackman?

Yet, with Tom Cruise in the house, the competition split wide open. As J.J. Abrams wisely pointed out though, “Giving Tom Cruise a hero award, it’s like giving a toy to Santa Claus. There’s no point.”

The result came from far left field, confirming that in the 21st century, it’s brains that rule above mere brawn, with Simon Pegg crowned as the night’s official hero.

Some things remain unchanged, as Emma Thompson’s winning wit brought her usual hilarity to the stage.

Scrutinising the Empire Awards’ evolution to its present showy affair, Thompson reminisced over the early trophies. ”The awards in those days were pretty much anything that came to hand, »

'Gravity' wins top Empire Awards, as Tom Cruise is named 'legend of our lifetime'

31 March 2014 12:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I think we can now emphatically put a lid on the 2013/14 awards season, as the Empire Awards -- voted on by the readers of the British film magazine -- took place in London last night. Unsurprisingly, given the magazine's inclination toward populist and genre fare, this is one ceremony where "Gravity" managed to trump "12 Years a Slave": Alfonso Cuaron's space adventure took Best Film and Best Director, while "Slave," which had received six nominations, won only Best Supporting Actor for Michael Fassbender. Unlike the BAFTAs, Empire wasn't prepared to consider "Gravity" for Best British Film -- that honor went to "The World's End." British loyalties emerged in the acting categories, as James McAvoy won Best Actor for "Filth," Emma Thompson won Best Actress for "Saving Mr. Banks" and Sally Hawkins won Best Supporting Actress for "Blue Jasmine." "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," which had led the field with seven nods, »

Emma Thompson's Many Silly Faces at the 2014 Jameson Empire Awards, Including Kissing Arnold Schwarzenegger!

30 March 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's face it, everything Emma Thompson does at an awards show is highly entertaining and absolutely brilliant. Remember when she appeared onstage at the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards with her Christian Louboutins in one hand and a martini in the other? And where do we even begin with the 18th Annual SAG Awards. Photobombing Lupita Nyong'o on the red carpet, grooving to the music that played while she presented an award with Ewan McGregor and sipping a cocktail when the camera fell on her during the Best Actress category. It's really difficult to pick the best moment. The Saving Mr. Banks actress was back to her amazing and usual silly form at the 2014 Jameson Empire Awards in London on »

Movie fans from the UK and other countries vote for the annual Jameson Empire Awards, which honor blockbusters, indies and British films alike.  Movie magazine Empire, which is celebrating 25 years (I was its first west coast editor), presented Lifetime awards to current coverboy Tom Cruise ("Edge of Tomorrow") as well as Arnold Schwarzenegger (whose "Sabotage" opened poorly this weekend). Cruise accepted the Legend of Our Lifetime award from Rosamund Pike, while The Action Hero of Our Lifetime award went to Schwarzenegger. Two more special Empire awards went to Hugh Jackman (Empire Icon award) and Simon Pegg (Empire Hero award).  Pegg had a good night, as "The World’s End" took Best British Film.

New poster for Transformers: Age of Extinction

29 March 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from yesterday's trailer for the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [which you can watch here], we've now got a new poster for Bay's other upcoming project, Transformers: Age of Extinction, which features Mark Wahlberg (Ted) and his on screen daughter Nicola Peltz (Bates Motel). For some reason, Wahlberg seems more interested in the farmhouse he's leaving behind, rather than the enormous floating Decepticon that's hovering above it and filling the sky...

Transformers: Age of Extinction is set for release on June 27th with a cast that also includes Jack Reynor (What Richard Did), Stanley Tucci (Captain America: The First Avenger), Bingbing Li (Resident Evil: Retribution), Sophia Myles (Underworld), Victoria Summer (Saving Mr. Banks), Titus Welliver (Lost) and T.J. Miller (She's Out of My League). Watch the first trailer here. »

‘Frozen’ Easily Tops Home Video Sales Charts

26 March 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Walt Disney Studios’ “Frozen” easily debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ending March 23, selling more than three times as many copies as all 19 other titles on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert top 20 sales chart combined.

The year’s Oscar winner for animated feature film, “Frozen” earned nearly $400 million at the domestic box office alone, with a global ticket tally of more than $1 billion – only the second animated feature to cross that milestone, after another Disney film, “Toy Story 3.” Last week Disney reported first-day disc sales of 3.2 million units, a tally that includes advance orders.

Two other new releases debuted high on both the First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. Another Disney film, “Saving Mr. Banks,” about the real-life drama behind the making of “Mary Poppins,” debuted at No. »

Kevin Spacey Will Play Winston Churchill In Biopic Captain Of The Gate

25 March 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Apparently, even the White House wasn’t enough. Hot off his acclaimed turn as dastardly politician Frank Underwood on the second season of Netflix’s hit drama House of Cards, Kevin Spacey has signed on to play former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in a biopic titled Captain of the Gate.

The biopic, which hails from Sierra/Affinity (Oculus, the upcoming Kill the Messenger), will focus on Churchill’s rise to power as he heroically took a stand against Parliament in order to protect England from Adolf Hitler’s powerful Third Reich. The script was penned by Ben Kaplan, who recently worked on the History Channel’s documentary Reagan. Kaplan also wrote episodes of historical documentary series Vietnam in HD and WWII in HD, both also for the History Channel, but Captain of the Gate will mark his feature debut.

Churchill has understandably been the subject of countless biopics, including »
