BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
It seems like this is the age where movies and TV shows from years past are returning, much to the glee of fans. From Star Wars, Wet Hot American Summer, The X-Files, and now Trainspotting, the seemingly impossible remakes and sequels are real.
Most critics agree that the new film about Apple founder Steve Jobs is really quite good. While this might bode well for the film’s award prospects going into the end of the year, awards don’t pay the bills.
This doesn’t mean that the movie’s Oscar chances are done, however, they have decreased. Box office obviously isn’t the only factor that goes in to a successful awards campaign, and films that earned less than Steve Jobs have landed Best Picture nominations.
Steve Jobs has upset a great many people, but now it seems even the minor details of the film are falling under legal scrutiny.
Steve Jobs was almost a completely different film. In fact it was almost directed by David Fincher, starring Christian Bale, and financed by Sony. Would it have been better if it had?
Steve Jobs strikes me as the type of movie that the industry will appreciate, though the general public might not. There’s nothing to warm up to in Boyle’s film, no hero to champion or mission to follow. And yet, you can't take your eyes off of it.
In the twenty years since the release of Trainspottingthere has been chatter about a sequel. Now, not only do we have confirmation that one is forthcoming, but we also know why there hasn’t been one yet: the cast was fearful that a sequel might tank.
It's no secret that Tim Cook doesn’t really approve of the Steve Jobs biopic. The thing is, though, the filmmakers behind Steve Jobs have been pretty clear that the film plays with the facts. According to Kate Winslet, it was important for the story’s sake to play with the facts.
Danny Boyle has made some recent remarks on the possibility of his directing 28 Months Later, and the results might shock you.
Back during the Telluride Film Festival, Danny Boyle billed the screening of Steve Jobs as a “work in progress.” The filmmaker told press that he was still tweaking bits of the film, though the specifics were unclear at the time. During the press junket for Steve Jobs a couple weeks back, Cinema Blend sat down with Boyle, and he discussed the changes more in-depth, as well as their overall purpose.
Steve Jobs is not your typical biopic. In fact, it’s not a biopic at all, according to screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. The spitfire wordsmith behind The Newsroom, The West Wing, and The Social Network sat down with Cinema Blend to chat about his take on the late Apple co-founder.
When biopics are made they are often controversial. When you’re digging around in somebody’s history you are bound to upset people, and that’s apparently what happened in the case of the upcoming Steve Jobs.
Trainspotting 2 has been talked about for years, and while it still looks to be moving forward, it is doing so with one major change: it is no longer called Porno.
Following the film’s debut at the Telluride Film Festival and ahead of its upcoming premiere at the New York Film Festival, a new Steve Jobs trailer has hit the web. Michael Fassbender stars as the man behind the big Apple, surrounded by a star-studded cast and crew.
Movies that tell the story of real people, especially those still alive, are even more complicated than normal films, and Steve Wozniak has some very strong feelings about the new Steve Jobs biopic.
Director Danny Boyle has spent years talking up the idea of doing a sequel to Trainspotting, but has regularly found himself distracted by other projects and opportunities, but that time may be over. This is because the filmmaker is now talking about Trainspotting 2 as his next feature.
Biographical films are always walking something of a tightrope. On the one hand they have to tell the true story about what happened to their subject, or they’re not very good biographies. On the other hand, they have to tell interesting, or exciting stories, or they won’t make for very good movies.
After a mere 60 seconds of footage, the new Steve Jobs trailer, featuring the remarkable Michael Fassbender as the celebrated Apple co-founder, has been released. Watch the new riveting new footage now.
Ewan McGregor made his first big impact in Danny Boyle’s darkly humorous junkie romp, Trainspotting. Nearly two decades later, amidst some apparent bad blood with the director, the possibility of a return is promising.
Alex Garland has admitted that he's come up with a pretty nifty idea for 28 Months Later.
