Tomorrowland (aka Tomorrowland: A World Beyond) movie review: back to the future

21 May 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It gets a tad heavy-handed, but my eyes welled with tears of geeky joy at the film’s embrace of an optimism it steadfastly refuses to see as old-fashioned. I’m “biast” (pro): love George Clooney; big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

We geeks have been getting teased and taunted by the prospect of Disney and director Brad Bird’s (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Ratatouille) Tomorrowland for so long now, without getting anything more than vague hint of what the movie is actually about, that it seems inevitable that the actual film must be a disappointment. So is it?

Not at all. In fact, it’s a glorious reminder — in this era of reboots and remakes and sequels and based-on-something-else movies — of the joy of discovery that we get far less frequently at the movies these days. »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About George Clooney

21 May 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Brothers

Looking back at the great actors from the Golden Age of Hollywood – the stars like Clarke Gable and Spencer Tracey – and it’s apparent how few A-list actors working today have quite the same sense of style and gravitas. George Clooney is one of the few who follows in their illustrious footsteps and brings a degree of class to his films.

Clooney’s effortless suave and sophistication is apparent in many of the films he’s starred in – from the mediocre rom-coms all actors of his stature appear to be obliged to star in through to the textbook Ocean’s heist movie franchise, few other actors quite manage to exude cool as well as Clooney.

He may have apologised recently for his part in Joel Schumacher’s much derided Batman And Robin but, on the whole, there’s very little in the way of clunkers on his impressive filmography. »

George Clooney Reveals Hidden Rap Talent ... or Lack Thereof!

13 May 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

George Clooney, rap star?   The hunky 54-year-old may be one of Hollywood's top leading men, but that's not his only skill -- turns out the star can spit some impressive rap game!   During a press conference for his new film "Tomorrowland" Clooney opened up about his hidden talent and revealed that his "secret" rap skills aren't much of a secret at all!  "My rapping skills are well known, in fact many of the great rappers today have fashioned their styling's from me," he joked. "I was 18 when The Sugarhill Gang hit the scene and it's funny because I'm literally at the oldest age of anyone who knows those songs." "I still sing them once in a while to entertain the troops when they think, 'Gosh we're in the water, it's cold, we're shooting fourteen hours, we've been out all night, it's terrible.' They think what could be worse, then I rap. »

Cate Blanchett Opens the Closet Door with Lesbian Romance ‘Carol’

12 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not surprising that “Carol” was locked away in Hollywood’s development closet for 15 years. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s scandalous 1952 novel “The Price of Salt,” Todd Haynes’ latest movie is a double whammy by industry standards: it’s headlined by two women, who fall in love with each other.

The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, arrives at a pivotal, yet paradoxical, time for female-driven stories. There has been a string of hits this year that celebrate female empowerment — from “Insurgent” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” to “Cinderella,” and the upcoming “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and the final installment of “The Hunger Games.” That said, gender inequality both in front of and behind the camera is a hot-button issue in the global entertainment business.

As one of cinema’s most prominent stars, Blanchett, whose recent roles include the evil stepmother in “Cinderella, »

George Clooney's Onscreen Evolution From Mullet to Movie Star

5 May 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

George Clooney is turning 54 on Wednesday, and though he's a megastar now, I'm not sure he could predict his success in his early days guest-starring on The Facts of Life and Roseanne. To celebrate the Oscar winner's birthday, we rounded up pics of him throughout his career, from his appearance on the short-lived 1985 series Street Hawk all the way up to his most recent role as an art-loving soldier in The Monuments Men. Enjoy, and happy birthday George! »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Exclusive Trailer For The Connection

14 April 2015 2:56 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Since that Oscar win for The Artist, Jean Dujardin hasn't become as ubiquitous in Hollywood movies as we might have expected. Maybe Funny Or Die's sketch played out for real and he found himself pigeoned-holed and offered unappetising roles; maybe he was happy to stay local and moonlight in the likes of The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Monuments Men. Either way, he'll be back on our screens soon in The Connection, a taut Gallic policier that has a new trailer below. brightcove.createExperiences();There's a hint of Mesrine's stylised moodiness in there, underlined by the presence of Gilles Lellouche as the Fernando Rey to Dujardin's Gene Hackman. Lellouche is Neapolitan heroin trafficker Tony Zampa; Dujardin is Pierre Michel, the Marseilles magistrate trying to bring him down.It's the same tense terrain - and the same real-life case - that was tapped by John Frankenheimer's The French Connection »

Stand Tall in the 2nd Trailer for Little Boy

7 April 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

A very small boy learns to measure himself differently and channel enough strength to move a mountain and get his father back from the war in the new movie Little Boy. So many World War II movies came out in 2014 (Fury, Unbroken, The Imitation Game, The Monuments Men), yet I don’t think we’ve had […]

Woman in Gold | Review

All that Glitters: Curtis Traps Compelling Kernel in Avalanche of Schmaltz

British television alum Simon Curtis graduated to feature filmmaking in 2011 with the incredibly problematic My Week with Marilyn. Apparently, whatever its faults, they were easy to overlook, as the film nabbed a number of critics’ choice awards, along with prestigious BAFTA and Academy Award nominations. Unfortunately, his penchant for mawkishness has showed no sides of abatement in his follow-up feature, Woman in Gold, also based on compelling true events but at least portraying subjects that feel imbued with less drastic measures of caricature since they aren’t ingrained in cultural pop subconscious with such sacred fury.

In the late 1990s, the Austrian government began to revamp its art restitution laws in reference to victims of WWII. Upon the death of her sister, Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), an elderly Los Angeles shop keeper who had fled Austria sixty years prior to escape the Nazis, »

Grading Mojo's Holiday Forecast

11 March 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

As is tradition here at Box Office Mojo, we made domestic box office predictions for holiday 2014 releases ahead of the start of the season. Now that those movies are essentially at the end of their runs, it's time to grade that forecast.As usual, there were a healthy set of very accurate predictions (Big Hero 6, Into the Woods, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb), along with a handful that were laughably inaccurate (Exodus: Gods & Kings, Horrible Bosses 2).For each title, we will list the domestic forecast, the actual gross (in most cases an estimate) and the percentage difference [(Actual-Forecast)/Forecast]. Each prediction will be assigned a grade on the following arbitrary scale: A (less than 10% difference), B (10-19.9%), C (20-29.9%), D (30-39.9%) and F (over 40%).The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1Forecast: $385 millionActual: $337 million (est.)Difference: -13%Grade: BThe previous Hunger Games movies each earned over $408 million at »

George Clooney Pens Impassioned Op-Ed on Darfur "Torture Rapes": "We Must Not Forget the Survivors"

26 February 2015 1:23 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

A decade ago, the crisis in Darfur was at the forefront of everyone's minds, thanks in part to celebs like Ryan Gosling and George Clooney, who took an interest in the cause and campaigned to raise awareness and money for aid. National interest has since waned, but as Clooney explained in a New York Times op-ed on Wednesday, Feb. 25, the atrocities have not. The Monuments Men actor, who married human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin in September, teamed up with activist-author John Prendergast and Sudan policy analyst [...] »

Hugh Bonneville waxwork arrives at Blackpool's Madame Tussauds

16 February 2015 4:39 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hugh Bonneville has been immortalised in wax at Madame Tussauds in Blackpool.

The Paddington actor's waxwork arrived at the seaside town in style, as Blackpool North train station was transformed into Paddington station for the occasion.

The model is dressed as Bonneville's Paddington character Mr Brown in a pinstripe suit, and was pictured on the platform in Blackpool with suitcases in tow.

Matthew Titherington, general manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, said: "It isn't quite as far as Peru, but we're delighted to welcome the wax figure of Hugh Bonneville to the attraction here in Blackpool.

"We're expecting his figure to be extremely popular, as he appeals to children and parents alike thanks to his brilliant performances on screen.

"Changing the name of Blackpool North station was a brilliant way to welcome the figure to town – there were a few worried faces as the trains pulled into 'Paddington' station. »

Alexandre Desplat ('Budapest,' 'Imitation') on double Oscar nods & composing a score in three weeks [Podcast]

7 February 2015 8:50 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"You never anticipate, first of all, to be nominated for anything ... and certainly not for two films," says Alexandre Desplat, who picked up a pair of Oscar nods this year for composing the scores for "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and "The Imitation Game" (listen to our podcast interview below). "It's always incredible to have one, so to have two puts you over the moon." -Break- Writer Graham Moore ('Imitation Game') on 'endless fascination' of Alan Turing [Exclusive Video] This is the first time Desplat has ever been double-nominated, but he's hardly a stranger to the Oscars. He has now been nominated eight times in the past nine years, though he has yet to win. And he's so prolific that he's had no shortage of chances, scoring "Grand Budapest," "Imitation Game," "The Monuments Men," "Unbroken," and "Godzilla" in 2014 alone. »

Film music critics nominate 'Maleficent,' 'Dragon 2' and 'Hunger Games' scores

5 February 2015 6:27 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The International Film Music Critics Association has revealed nominations for best in movie music from 2014, and prolific composers James Newton Howard ("The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1," "Maleficent") and Alexandre Desplat ("Godzilla," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "The Imitation Game," "The Monuments Men") led the way with seven and six nominations respectively. Film score of the year contenders include just two Best Original Score Oscar nominees: "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and Hans Zimmer's "Interstellar." "The Imitation Game" and Jóhann Jóhannsson's "Theory of Everything," however, were both nominated in the drama category. "Maleficent" landed the most nominations for a film with four, while DreamWorks Animation's "How to Train Your Dragon 2" picked up three (each of them another if you count composer of the year honors for Howard and John Powell respectively). Check out the full list of nominees below. Winners will be revealed on Feb. 19. And be sure »
