Fredrik Bond Will Direct London Has Fallen

19 August 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

What seemed like an impossible idea before last year’s financial victory over fellow terrorism thriller White House Down is closer to becoming a reality. The Olympus Has Fallen sequel London Has Fallen just locked in a director. Fredrik Bond, who last shot Shia Labeouf drama Charlie Countryman, will marshal the madness.With Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Radha Mitchell and Morgan Freeman returning as Secret Service agent Mike Banning, Us President Benjamin Asher, Secret Service Director Lynn Jacobs, Leah Banning and Speaker Trumbull respectively, the sequel’s plot will see the characters headed to London to attend the funeral of our Prime Minister. World leaders from far and wide are in attendance, but it turns out that it's all a dastardly scheme to get them in one place for a mass assassination and a seismic change to the world order. Only Banning, the Prez and a distrustful MI »

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel Moves To London & Confirms Director

19 August 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Olympus Has Fallen came out at the same time as White House Down (Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx) and was probably easily dismissed if you saw the latter, like I did, as another one of those patriotic America Yeah! movies. But in reality it was a completely different animal and with the rumours that Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are all set to returns to their roles for the sequel, they’ve wasted no time pinning down a director to take it to the next stage.

Going for the imaginative London Has Fallen, fallen down, fallen down…the new director has been announced as Fredrik Bond, the man who also directed the Shia Labeouf-starring Charlie Countryman, as they move events from the White House to London.

This time around, the three main characters, U.S. Secret Service agent (Butler), U.S. president (Eckhart) and the speaker of the U. »

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel ‘London Has Fallen’ Gets a Director

18 August 2014 5:12 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Despite some issues with storytelling, Antoine Fuqua’s one-man-army film, Olympus Has Fallen, is a solidly entertaining action movie. The movie follows an ex-secret service operative fighting terrorists in the White House (not to be confused with Roland Emmerich’s White House Down about a wannabe secret service agent fighting terrorists in the White House).

While both blockbusters performed well at the box office, Fuqua’s R-rated action film grossed more domestically and cost significantly less to create; thus, Olympus Has Fallen is the one that earned a sequel, titled London Has Fallen. However, Fuqua will not be returning to direct the followup, which was originally intended to begin production May 2014. Millennium Films has instead tapped a ...

‘Charlie Countryman’ Director Fredrik Bond To Helm ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Sequel

18 August 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

To recap: With “Independence Day 2” still in development in the spring/summer of 2013, two studios went head to head with dueling bad-guys-get-inside-the-White-House movies. Sony Pictures had “White House Down,” and released a few months earlier, FilmDistrict (now known as Focus Features) had “Olympus Has Fallen.” The conventional wisdom  tended to favor Sony; their film had stars like Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx and made $205 million worldwide (some notable critics enjoyed its ludicrousness). But at a costly $150 million, “White House Down” only made $73 million at home. In comparison, the cheaper to produce “Olympus Has Fallen,” featuring the cut-rate stars of Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart (sorry guys) made $161 million worldwide against a $70 million budget. The smaller film has the greater profit margin, thus a sequel is born. So unless you’ve blocked it out of your memory, Focus Features has already announced a sequel titled “London Has »

A slew of classic Disney movies are hitting for the first time on Blu-Ray, including one double-pack release, and you’re going to want to make sure to pick these up. You haven’t paid attention to some of these titles for a while, and it’s about time you got the chance to catch them on Blu-Ray. The best part is that there’s a great mix of releases hitting. Bedknobs and Broomsticks is all but lost in the cultural consciousness, and it deserves a return. The Academy Award-winning movie from the year I was born is filled with a lot of fun and adventure, and like most Disney films, holds up well for a whole new generation.

The rest of the group covers a great spectrum, including two animated “big” titles, and a 10th Anniversary release. There’s a lot to expose your family to here, so check out all the info below, »

Forget the summer, did 'Guardians of the Galaxy' just save the rest of 2014?

4 August 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's taken a few months, but moviegoers finally found another summer movie they adore. "Boyhood" has a very passionate fan base, but that awards-worthy player still isn't in enough theaters to come close to qualifying for nationwide release. No, America and some parts of the world have gone nuts for James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy," and with not a moment to spare. Frankly, this summer movie season has mostly been a box office dud from a studio perspective. That's somewhat perplexing considering the quality of films in May and June were surprisingly strong. "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Neighbors," "22 Jump Street," "Maleficent," "The Fault in Our Stars," "Edge of Tomorrow" and "How to Train Your Dragon 2" guaranteed there was at least one good movie opening almost every weekend over the first six weeks of the summer. The box office results were mixed, however. "Days" was the biggest »

Summer Box Office Shrinks, But So Do the Flops

20 July 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The hits have been smaller, but so have the flops.

The summer box office is down 20%, but most of the films that have hit theaters over the last three months have a good chance of recouping their production budgets while still in theaters.

“We really haven’t had an out and out misfire yet,” said Jeff Bock, an analyst with Exhibitor Relations.

There’s been nary an “After Earth,” a “White House Down” or “The Lone Ranger” to harsh Hollywood’s mellow this summer. To say nothing of “R.I.P.D,” the D.O.A. science-fiction comedy that debuted nearly a year ago to the day, recouping only $78 million of its $130 million production costs plus whatever else it took to market this “Ghostbusters” retread.

Yes, there have been turkeys. “Blended” ($93.7 million on a $40 million budget) and “A Million Ways to Die in the West” ($82.2 million on a $40 million budget »

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie review: people get ready

18 July 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A magnificent science fiction drama, and a beautiful one. Wonderfully radical for the simple fact that it is ruled by principled ideas. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

We need a bigger word than humanist.

That was a word I used to describe the lovely, honest, sensitive Rise of the Planet of the Apes — and god, did it feel good to be able to connect those words with a big-budget science fiction movie. But now it feels too small to encompass where Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes the ongoing story. People-ist is the first coinage that leaps to mind, clunky as it is. Because there are nonhumans here who are as fully people as the humans are… in fact, the story is very much about the humans coming to »

Wish I Was Here – The Review

17 July 2014 6:48 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Hard to believe, but it’s been a full ten years since Zach Braff, best known for his lead role on the TV sitcom “Scrubs”, released his feature film-making debut, writing, directing , and starring in Garden State. The modest box-office hit was a character study about a young man, played by Braff, in his twenties returning to his home town and learning to enjoy life again, thanks to a local free spirit played by Natlaie Portman. It generated a passionate group of fans who were eager for a follow-up from Braff. After a few more years on the TV show, a couple of movie acting gigs, and a recent stint in a Broadway musical, he surprised everyone with an internet announcement. Braff was ready for his second directorial effort, but he needed help to make the film the way he wanted…financial help. And so he launched a fund-raising effort through the Kickstarter website. »

Bitch Stole My Look! Cameron Diaz vs. Maggie Gyllenhaal in Colorful Vionnet Dress

15 July 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If we were Maggie Gyllenhaal we'd be like, have at it! Cameron Diaz waited a full year to steal this breezy summer cocktail frock from the White House Down star. While there is no statute of limitations on a celebrity style (thank you Internet), the steal stings less as more time passes. We remember saying this hand painted look might be better off on the wall at the Museum of Modern Art, but now that we've had some distance, there is something lovely about the brushstroke print. Could the Sex Tapes star be to thank for our switch? There is something lighter and brighter about the way the blonde beauty's hair pops against this darker dress, but hair color can't possibly break this tie. We thought shoe »

Additional creative team details will be revealed at a later date.

Dan Rather's Sad Final Controversy Is Getting A Movie

9 July 2014 8:37 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For twenty-four years, Dan Rather was the face of CBS News. During that time, he broke countless stories and reported on hundreds of world-changing events. Unfortunately, his career is remembered in some circles for only one: The Killian Documents Controversy. The broadcast was a complete fiasco, and now, it.s getting its own movie. According to Deadline, the film will be entitled Truth. More importantly, it will star industry legend Robert Redford as Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett as his doomed producer Mary Mapes. It.ll be helmed by screenwriter James Vanderbilt, who will make his directorial debut. He wrote The Amazing Spider-Man and White House Down. Perhaps more importantly, he.s a descendent of railroad pioneer and visionary Cornelius Vanderbilt and a relative of The Silver Fox, Anderson Cooper. It.s unclear exactly how wide the scope of Truth might have, but it will focus primarily on the lead-up »

Oscar Bait: Robert Redford to play Dan Rather in film about 2004 'Rathergate' scandal

9 July 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Robert Redford isn't messing around with this Oscar business. After losing out on a nomination for his acclaimed, nearly dialogue-free performance in last year's "All Is Lost," the legendary actor is making another go at Academy consideration (at least in theory) as the star of "Truth," in which he'll play former CBS news anchor Dan Rather during the career-derailing 2004 "Rathergate" scandal, according to Deadline. Starring opposite Redford will be Cate Blanchett as Peabody Award-winning "60 Minutes" producer Mary Mapes, who was fired from the program after it was discovered that a series of documents alleged to prove that then-President George W. Bush had been given preferential treatment while serving in the Texas Air National Guard had not been properly authenticated prior to airing on sister program "60 Minutes II." Though Rather continued on with the network until 2006, his career and reputation suffered irreparable damage from the scandal, leading to a $70 million »

Robert Redford to Play Dan Rather in CBS Scandal Movie ‘Truth’

9 July 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Robert Redford has come on board to play Dan Rather and Cate Blanchett will portray producer Mary Mapes in political drama “Truth.”

James Vanderbilt, who wrote Zodiac” and both “The Amazing Spider-Man” scripts, will make his directorial debut along with writing and producing through his Mythology Entertainment banner along with Brad Fischer, William Sherak and Mikkel Bondesen.

The film will center on Rather’s 2004 report on CBS’ “60 Minutes Wednesday”about a  series of memos critical of President George W. Bush’s Texas Air National Guard service record that had been discovered in the files of the president’s former commanding officer. The authenticity of those documents was called into question, which led to claims that the memos were forgeries.

Rather and CBS initially defended the story — released during the height of Bush’s re-election campaign — but wound up retracting it 12 days after the initial broadcast. “If I knew then what I know now, »

Robert Redford Will Play Dan Rather In Truth And Duty

9 July 2014 1:18 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since his All The President’s Men days – and probably before that – actor/director Robert Redford has been outspokenly political. It should therefore come as no surprise that his next acting project will involve politics, the media, and the complications that arise when the two combine.

Redford has just signed on to play newsman Dan Rather in Truth and Duty, based on 60 Minutes producer Mary Mapes’ book Truth and Duty: The Press, The President, And The Privilege Of Power. Like the book, the film will follow the behind-the-scenes account of what happened before, during, and after Rather’s notorious report about how then-president George W. Bush managed to keep out of Vietnam.

The report alleged that Bush had received preferential treatment resulting in his acceptance in the Texas Air National Guard over the heads of other applicants, effectively keeping him out of the Vietnam War. Following the broadcast, CBS »
