Fox is resurrecting its popular drama 24 in the form of a 12-episode limited event series this spring, and the network has now unveiled the first full trailer for 24: Live Another Day. The story picks up four years after the events of the series finale and finds Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer thwarting terror abroad in London. He doesn’t exactly have the backing of the U.S. government, and this trailer offers us a look at Benjamin Bratt as the head of the CIA operation tasked with tracking Jack down. Though I’m still a bit unconvinced that Jack Bauer’s return is necessary, I’m interested to see how the 24 format is adapted into this close-ended limited series. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer. The show also stars Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, Tate Donovan, Yvonne Strahovski, William Devane, Stephen Fry, and Michelle Fairley. 24: Live »

Getting people psyched up for the new 24 series, 24: Live Another Day, may strike many people as something along the lines of Coke commercials. At this point, are you really selling to anyone? We all know whether or not we’re interested in Coke.
Still, despite the idea that pulling in the completely uninitiated may be a questionable pursuit, Fox is pretty clear on the idea that it wants to make sure it doesn’t miss anyone. The new teaser doesn’t exactly give you a lot to go on, perhaps in a way similar to the idea that Coke commercials don’t exactly explain the product. But, it does at least give you the impression that it may pull off the difficult and dangerous attempt of standing next to the previous entries. I’m not absolutely convinced that this is a game we can keep playing, but the trailer looks good. »

With all the hoopla about the big Sunday night movie award show, many of you might not have gotten the list of the big winners from Saturday night’s big movie awards show. I’m talking about the 34th Annual Razzie Awards. They were started in 1980 by John Wilson to celebrate the movie year’s worst achievements. The hour-long ceremony was held this past Saturday evening down the street from the site of Sunday’s big show. Without further ado, here’s the nominees and winners for the 2013 film year:
Worst Remake, Rip-off, Or Sequel:

Night Shyamalan sci-fi After Earth picked up three gongs apiece, with Movie 43 claiming Worst Picture, Worst Director(s) and Worst Screenplay and Jaden Smith and Will Smith named Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo.

Right before the Academy Awards announces its winners, the 34th Annual Razzie Awards has unveiled the list of its own winners for the worst achievement in film for 2013. Taking the prize for the Worst Picture of the year is "Movie 43," beating out such films as "After Earth," "Grown Ups 2," "The Lone Ranger" and "A Madea Christmas." The movie also won for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. The theme of this year's Razzies focused on the Smith family, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor and Will Smith winning for Worst Supporting Actor for "After Earth." The father-son team also won in the Worst Screen Combo category. The only good news is that Adam Sandler and his "Grown Ups 2" went some how ignored, despite dominating the awards show for two straight years. Check out the full list of nominees and winners (in red) below. Worst Picture: * Movie 43 * After Earth »

Glamour! Elegance! The sweet smell of self-congratulation! None will be present at the 34th annual Razzie Awards, a proudly low-budget event dedicated to dishonoring the previous year’s worst movies. (Actually, make that “no-budget”; have you seen the Razzies’ website? It looks like a Geocities page from 1996.)
There are several strong contenders in this year’s Razzies race, from father-and-son team Will and Jaden Smith to perennial “winner” Adam Sandler and Golden Raspberry Award Foundation favorite Sylvester Stallone, who snagged a record-breaking 31st nomination for his work in three 2013 films. (Note: It is not hard to become a member of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. »

Last year brought us a biopic revolving around the life of Steve Jobs, the aptly title Jobs, starring Ashton Kutcher and while that film received mixed reviews at best, it looks like Hollywood isn’t quite done with the Apple founder just yet as a new higher brow version is in pre-production based on a bold script by Oscar winner, Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, The Newsroom, The West Wing). The reason why the script could be considered bold is, as earlier reported, that it only includes three scenes playing out in real time, each scene being around 30 minutes long and revolving around a product launch.
This sort of difficult project would require a director of some pedigree to tackle it, and it looks like Sony may have found him as the dream team behind The Social Network Sorkin, producer Scott Rudin & director David Fincher is set to join forces once more. »

David Fincher is the director of "The Social Network," about Mark Zuckerberg and his Facebook company. Now comes word that Fincher is in talks to take on another tech billionaire, Steve Jobs. The film is based on Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography of the Apple co-founder, which has been adapted by Oscar-winning writer Aaron Sorkin, who worked with Fincher on "The Social Network." The story of Jobs' life was already turned into a film, called "Jobs," starring Ashton Kutcher. It's considered a failure, having grossed only $35 million at the worldwide box office. But Sorkin's version is a more high-profile project and even has Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak participating as a consultant. Back in 2012, Sorkin revealed that the "entire movie is going to be three scenes and three scenes only. That all take place in real time. There will be no time cuts and each will take place before a product launch. »
Think back all the way to 2013, when a biopic about a man named Steve Jobs surfaced starring Ashton Kutcher. Okay, now forget that Jobs ever existed because David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin would like to make another biopic about the Apple co-founder like right away, please, if that’s okay with everyone. After tackling the story of one petulant billionaire technology boy king of Silicon Valley with The Social Network, the writing and directing duo would like to conquer the tale of Jobs, based on the best-selling biography written by Walter Isaacson that Sorkin has already finished adapting. Though the story of Apple’s creation and Job’s rise to relevance is already pretty much public knowledge at this point, even if you didn’t see Jobs last year or one of its thousands of inspirational promos, here’s a refresher: Jobs and his friend Steve Wozniak were free-wheelin’ visonaries for a technological industry, who »

David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin, the creative dream-team behind the Mark Zuckerberg-chronicling smash The Social Network, are reuniting for another tech-centric biopic – this time focused on Apple founder Steve Jobs. According to Variety, Fincher is in "early talks" to direct the still-untitled film, which was written by Sorkin (and adapted from the 2011 biography Steve Jobs, written by Walter Isaacson).
20 People You Won't Believe Have Grammys: David Fincher
Following their collaboration on "The Social Network," it seems that director David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin (who scored a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for the film) will re-team. Sorkin's Steve Jobs biopic script, based on Walter Isaacson's bestselling biography, is reportedly poised to have Fincher at the helm. The Sony film is currently untitled, and has no lead actor attached yet. Let the A-listers start chomping at the bit. This is the second Steve Jobs film to come together following the Apple visionary's death in 2011. Indie "Jobs," starring Ashton Kutcher in the title role, hit Sundance 2013 and then had a release from Open Road. Reception to that one was lackluster. Fincher has now finished up production on "Gone Girl," based on Gillian Flynn's bestselling mystery thriller and starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Apparently, as with Sorkin, when Fincher finds a writer he likes, he returns to them. »

David Fincher is interested on directing the only authorized biographic of Steve Jobs. The project is based on the Walter Isaacson biography “Steve Jobs” that Sony acquired the rights to following the death of Apple mogul in 2011. The biography is a compilation of more than 40 interviews that Isaacson conducted with Jobs. Isaacson also conducted more than 100 interviews with friends, family and coworkers for the biography. The adaptation was written by Oscar-wining screenwriter Aaron Sorkin and is being produced by Scott Rudin.
Last year Ashton Kutcher’s “Jobs” bombed in the box office and received plenty of negative reviews. However, Sony has high hopes for Fincher-Sorkin Biopic because of its high profile creative team. Sony wants to recreate Fincher’s box office success of “The Social Network” that was critical acclaimed by film enthusiasts worldwide. Fincher’s expertise in directing high-profile techie-theme biopics will be Sony’s selling point for this untitled project. »

The drama will be based on Walter Isaacson’s best-selling and critically acclaimed biography that was released soon after the Apple co-founder’s death in October 2011. It will tell the tale of Jobs being booted out of the company he co-founded, before coming back to revolutionise the tech industry and making Apple the pioneer of accessible products in the 21st century.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news of Fincher’s attachment this afternoon.
Always seen as being at the top of Sony’s wish list for the project, many of us thought Fincher wouldn’t be tempted make to direct another biopic of how a computer industry visionary started his global enterprise from the ground-up so soon »

Director David Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin turned the backstabbing intrigue of Facebook's inception into the verbose and brilliant movie The Social Network. Now they're poised to do the same for the another major technology company of the contemporary era: Apple, and its founder Steve Jobs.
Variety reports that Fincher is in talks to direct the as-yet untitled drama, written by Sorkin as an adaptation of the official Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson. Sorkin revealed in 2012 that he envisaged an unusual structure for the film: three single-take scenes, each one following a major Apple product launch. "This entire movie is going to be three scenes and three scenes only. »

Director David Fincher and "West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin already teamed up for the Oscar-winning Facebook drama "The Social Network," and now they may be turning their talents to a biopic of another tech legend: Apple founder Steve Jobs. Fincher ("Fight Club," "Seven") is in early talks to direct the as-yet-untitled film, while Sorkin has already finished writing the script for producer Scott Rudin, according to Variety. Based on Walter Isaacson's 2011 bestseller "Steve Jobs," the film reportedly has an unconventional structure consisting of just three long scenes, with each one taking place behind the scenes of one of Apple’s many major product launches through the years. Fincher is currently wrapping up "Gone Girl" -- which opens October 3 -- and could be moving onto the Jobs film soon after, depending on negotiations. After decades of tech innovation (including introducing the iPod and iPhone), Jobs passed away in 2011. He was »

Talk about a match made in heaven. THR is reporting today that David Fincher is set to reunite with writer Aaron Sorkin for an upcoming Steve Jobs film. Sorkin had completed his script earlier this year but at the time, there was no word on who might direct. Now, it looks like Sony wants the put The Social Network team back together for another tech-focused biopic.
Unlike Jobs, the Ashton Kutcher film that also took a look at the iconic founder of Apple, this project will focus on three keynote speeches (the first Mac, NeXT and the iPod) and is inspired by Walter Isaacson’s biography, titled Steve Jobs.
Check out what Sorkin had to say about the film a while back when he spoke to The Daily Beast:
“I hope I don’t get killed by the studio for giving too much away,” Sorkin said, “but this entire movie »
