As someone who read Gillian Flynnís book prior to seeing Gone Girl, I can tell you that Fincher and his cast are smart enough to include clever nods and calculated asides to entertain those who know where the story is going.
One of Antonie Fuqua's decisions made for a moody set. But also a VERY difficult shoot. When I asked Denzel Washington about it during our exclusive interview, he explained that he understood how cool it looked, but after awhile, he didnít give a damn!
This week I had the incredible opportunity to sit down with Terry Gilliam, who is only allowed in the U.S. for 30 days a year (more on that later). Over the course of ten minutes, we discussed The Zero Theorem, its ties to his past dystopian epics, how he sees the U.S. and his own legacy, what he has coming up, and what he believes the new world religion really is.
Needless to say, we had a lot to talk about with the Russos, from Captain America: The Winter Soldier to Marvelís plans for Captain America 3 and beyond.
I had a blast speaking with The One I Love's director Charlie McDowell, and stars Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss. In a conversation filled with tip-toeing and Easter eggs, we uncovered the unconventional filmmaking behind this celebrated comedy, the magic in its making, and how it could prove the final straw in a soured relationship.
John Wayne's Star Trek Premonition And 10 More Things We Learned From To Be Takei's Transatlantic Premiere
Amid all the finery of Queen Mary 2, I enjoyed To Be Takei, which was afterwards complimented with a Q&A with the film's director Jennifer M. Kroot, and its stars George Takei, and his husband Brad Takei nť Altman. The fruits of this fantastic event are below.
"They had spent all day making beautiful plates," Lasse Hallstrom told us. "Like 50 of them. And then we never had time to get to them! I donít know what happened to those plates of food."
Feige knows that a lot of what Marvel would like to do in Phase 3 and beyond depends on audiences accepting some of the oddities in James Gunnís movie. But with so much happening on Marvelís cinematic front, we lept from topic to topic and tried to cover as much ground as possible. Here are a few of the major things we discovered.
The story of Peter Quill, the character played by Chris Pratt in James Gunnís Guardians of the Galaxy, is certainly a strange one. As a child back in the 1980s, he found himself whisked off of planet Earth and far off into the cosmos where he would spend the rest of his life living amongst all kinds of bizarre aliens from other worlds.
The end result is a rowdy, rambunctious film about a moment in music history where everything stopped to accommodate Brown's ruthless talent and ingenuity. The Get On Up press conference was held in New York, and it allowed journalists to talk to Chadwick Boseman , as well as Jill Scott, Octavia Spencer, Dan Aykroyd, producer Brian Grazer, director Tate Taylor, and the one and only Mick Jagger.
Paul Bettany and The Vision should be a major component of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward, particularly as we continue to learn his connections to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and the murderous Ultron (James Spader).
In promotion of The Purge: Anarchy, this past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with Frank Grillo and talk all about not only his latest film, but also his ambitious goals for his future as an actor. He had a bunch of absolutely fascinating things to say, so start reading now!
In case you couldnít tell from the title, Sex Tape is a summer comedy that earns its R-rating. The movie features all matters of foul language and sexuality that the MPAA just hates, but itís all for the sake of comedy. Watching the film, I wondered if the stars Ė Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz Ė were actually drawn to the script because of these more outlandish moments and a chance to play out some inhibited hilarity.
If thereís one thing the stop-motion animation process is known for, itís being painstakingly slow. Not only are the films put together one frame at a time with intense care and precision, there is an incredible amount of work that needs to go into development and construction long before the first shutter snap is even heard.
The stop-motion animation house Laika is well on its way to becoming one of the strongest, most consistent studios in in the movie industry. Founded by Travis Knight, the son of Nike founder and chairman Phil Knight, the company has only made two features thus far - Coraline and ParaNorman - but both earned incredible critical praise and even Academy Award nominations. The future is bright for Laika, particularly because their next film, The Boxtrolls.
