‘Eastern Promises’ Sequel ‘Body Cross’ to Shoot This Spring

8 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For years — and years, and years — there’d been talk of a follow-up to David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises, a crime drama whose main (perhaps sole) purpose for even continuing is the fact that it chose to end where most would begin. Despite stalling a number of years ago, a completed script from original scribe Steven Knight — whose profile has risen considerably in the ten years since Promises‘ release, what with Locke, Peaky Blinders, Allied, Taboo, and, of course, Burnt — that’s now known as Body Cross is apparently moving forward very fast.

Casting site My Entertainment World (via Little White Lies) tells us cameras will roll this March, and they provide a synopsis to boot. As it goes: “Picking up where the 2007 film left off with the incompetent underboss Kirill thinking that he and his henchman driver Nikolai really have inherited the throne from his crime-lord father, without knowing »

Paris – Thierry Fremaux, the artistic director and general delegate of the Cannes Film Festival, and Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard will be honored at the Lumieres Awards, France’s equivalent to the Golden Globes.

Since winning an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a Cesar and a Bafta for her role as Edith Piaf in “La vie en rose,” Cotillard has worked with some of the world’s most talented and acclaimed directors, from Michael Mann (“Public Enemies”) to Woody Allen (“Midnight in Paris”), Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “Dark Night Rises”), Steven Soderbergh (“Contagion”), James Gray (“The Immigrant”) and Robert Zemeckis (“Allied”). Cotillard also starred in the Dardenne brothers’s “Two Days, One Night” and Xavier Dolan’s »

Brad Pitt Lends His Beautiful Face and Star Status to a Heartwarming Cause

15 January 2017 8:57 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

After pulling the ultimate sneak attack at the Golden Globes last week, Brad Pitt showed his philanthropic side while attending an event hosted by Alex and Ani benefiting the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation in Malibu, CA, on Saturday. The Allied actor mingled with famous friends, including Sting and Chris Cornell, as well as Hollywood agent Andrea Pett-Joseph's son, Brandon, who was diagnosed with the rare genetic skin disorder when he was born. While Brad has been keeping a low profile as of late, his divorce from Angelina Jolie has been all over the headlines recently. After agreeing to seal their divorce and custody documents, Angelina and Brad released a joint statement, saying, "The parents are committed to act as a united front to effectuate recovery and reunification." We certainly hope these two can come to an agreement soon and put this mess behind them. Related:Angelina Jolie Has »

Oscar Sound Contenders: How ‘Rogue One,’ ‘Hacksaw Ridge,’ and ‘Allied’ Created War and Terror

12 January 2017 2:53 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Several of this year’s sound contenders explored battles and other action in a retro fashion very different from the usual superhero mayhem. They include the World War II arenas of “Hacksaw Ridge” and “Allied,” as well as the grittier “Star Wars” battles in “Rogue One”; the terrorist bombing of “Patriots Day”; the miracle on the Hudson in “Sully”; and the unique Indian presence of “The Jungle Book.”

 

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

To comply with director Gareth Edwards’ desire for a grittier “Star Wars” movie, sound editors Matthew Wood and Christopher Scarabosio created a new kind of soundscape. “We tried to make it more war-like than a classic ‘Star Wars’ battle,” Scarabosio told IndieWire. “Obviously there are lasers but we were going for impacts that were more realistic, more like you would hear when a bullet hits a tree or some kind of container, and of sand kicking up. »

Period and fantasy always have an advantage over contemporary in the Oscar costume universe. The Costume Designers branch, more than many others, is often willing to go their own way (remember winner “Priscilla: Queen of the Desert”?) They don’t care if “The Dressmaker,” say, or “Allied,” did badly at the box office, or if everyone else seems to love “La La Land.” They just look at the clothes.

Contenders are listed in alphabetical order:

Frontunners

Colleen Atwood (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”)

Consolata Boyle (“Florence Foster Jenkins”)

Madeline Fontaine (“Jackie”)

Joanna Johnston (“Allied”)

Mary Zophres (“La La Land”)

Brad Pitt Pulls a Golden Globes Sneak Attack, and We Couldn't Have Been More Excited to See Him

Brad Pitt introduces a clip from @moonlightmov, nominated for Best Motion Picture - Drama tonight! #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/mqaHCdsyvz - Golden Globe Awards (@goldenglobes) January 9, 2017 The Golden Globes was flooded with some of Hollywood's biggest stars on Sunday night, but one celebrity we weren't expecting to see was Brad Pitt.

Since she filed for divorce, the actor has been keeping a very low profile, only attending a few events for his film, Allied, in November.

2017 Razzies Nominate Batman v Superman, Assassin's Creed as Worst of the Year

8 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Golden Globe awards are airing tonight on NBC, which in essence kicks off the annual awards season race celebrating the year's best movies. There is also another awards ceremony that hands out awards to the year's "worst" movies, the Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. the Razzies. While we'll likely have to wait a short while for the full nominations to be unveiled, the 2017 Razzies short list has been unveiled, and it seems that Warner Bros.' blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has found itself in almost every category.

The nominations short list was unveiled by a YouTube user dubbed "truthhopelove," who took a video showing an email he received which features the 2017 Razzie nominations short list. The email reveals that voting will close on January 16, although the nominations won't be released until a few days later. Traditionally, the Razzie nominations come one day before the Oscar nominations are announced, »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Leads The Razzie Nominations Shortlist

7 January 2017 12:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we head into the thick of awards season, it’s time to celebrate all the incredible films that 2016 brought us. La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Deadpool and Arrival will no doubt find themselves on the lips of many moviegoers over the next few weeks, while talent like Amy Adams, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Adam Driver and Denzel Washington, among others, will also start picking up some serious buzz.

But, as the best of the best start to take up most of the spotlight, there’s another another awards ceremony gearing up to get underway, and it’ll be celebrating very different types of movies and actors/actresses. We are, of course, referring to the Razzie Awards, which shine a light on the worst that the year had to offer.

Angelina Jolie Claims Brad Pitt "Is Terrified the Public Will Learn the Truth" in New Court Filing

4 January 2017 5:40 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The war of words between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continues.  TMZ reports that the Oscar winner claims her ex is insistent on sealing divorce documents because he's "terrified that the public will learn the truth," according to the latest court documents. The development comes on the heels of a motion filed by the Allied actor's lawyers asking a judge to seal records Jolie filed involving their temporary custody agreement for their six children. Weeks earlier, his camp filed a request for an emergency hearing to seal the documents, though a judge denied the request as it was not considered an emergency.  On the second motion, his lawyers alleged in the »

Tracking Of A Russian Spy Appoints Nima Nourizadeh To Direct

4 January 2017 2:25 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Nima Nourizadeh, director of Project X and 2015’s divisive stoner comedy American Ultra, has been brought aboard to helm Tracking of a Russian Spy.

The true-life thriller, one that’s set up shop at StudioCanal and The Picture Company, is to be based on Mitch Swenson’s novella of love and espionage and, frankly, the devastating consequences when the two intertwine. Drake Doremus was once attached at the helm, and while he’s now gone, we understand the original, adapted screenplay from Charles Cumming and Chris Salmanpour remains in place.

There’s currently no mention of a release window just yet, but the official pitch teases “a secret romance between Swenson and Katya, a mysterious Russian woman he met in a New York nightclub. She disappeared suddenly after the arrest of 10 Russian Americans who were charged with spying for the Kremlin. Swenson went to »

Marion Cotillard On ‘Step Brothers’: ‘I Always Cry At the End’

3 January 2017 3:27 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Step Brothers” is an all-time favorite among comedy lovers, and that apparently includes lauded French actress Marion Cotillard, who says she has watched the 2008 film starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly over and over again. Each time, she says, the ending makes her shed some tears.

“It might sound weird, but I always cry at the end of ‘Step Brothers.’ I’ve seen the movie ten times, and it still touches me at the end, when Will Ferrell sings. You don’t expect to cry watching that type of comedy, but I always do,” the “Assassin’s Creed” actress told “W Magazine,” which features her in its annual “Best Performances of the Year” issue.

5 Box Office Lessons From 2016: From Franchise Fatigue to Fading Movie Stars

1 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Finding Dory,” “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “The Secret Life of Pets” and other blockbusters helped drive the domestic box office to record heights in 2016. However, it’s not like moviegoing suddenly saw a surge in popularity. Attendance was essentially flat with last year’s 1.32 billion and a far cry from the record 1.57 billion admissions from 2002. The record came from a new high-water mark in ticket prices, as well as the added cost that comes with Imax and 3D releases.

Overseas, the numbers are still being tallied, but many experts believe that a slowdown in China will lead to revenue declines.

The story of 2016, when it is written, will be a mixed one. Despite the rise of streaming services and quality television, the movie business continues to be resilient. Audiences are still turning up en masse for the new Star Wars or Avengers films, regardless of how adept “Game of Thrones »
