final Foxcatcher trailer

Here’s a new trailer for Bennett Miller‘s new film Foxcatcher before it hits theaters in November. Previous looks at the film have been brief, and little more than shadowy glimpses at the story of a rich man (Steve Carell) who opens a state of the art facility in a bid to train wrestlers for the US Olympic team. This time we get just a bit more story as we see a young wrestling hopeful (Channing Tatum) ally himself with Carell’s potentially unstable character in order to step out from the shadow of the success of his older brother (Mark Ruffalo). Check out what could be the final Foxcatcher trailer below. Read More »

Gone Girl Editing

When the cameras turn off, a movie isn’t even close to finished. These days, post-production is just as important, if not more so, than principal photography. Yes, capturing the images and performances are absolutely crucial to a film. But figuring out the pacing, making the story cohesive, adding emotion with music, depth with effects, are what really make a movie a movie.

David Fincher‘s Gone Girl is no different. Fincher and director of photography Jeff Cronenweth captured stunning images on the Red Epic Dragon 6K camera but when that was done, the editors, led by Kirk Baxter, took over. For Gone Girl, they used a new workflow that blurred the line between digital effects and editing in a way that’s pretty new and unique. Check out a video about the Gone Girl editing and post-production below. Read More »

Birdman Posters

Birdman, the new film from Alejandro González Iñárritu, opens limited on October 17. Then we’ll see Michael Keaton as an actor who fears that his image may be permanently tied to one character, the hero Birdman. As he struggles to mount a new play, all his anxieties play upon his character in dramatic fashion. Now a series of great Birdman posters places the hero himself in watchful positions on landmarks from cities across the United States (and, briefly, Canada). See them all below. Read More »

Amazon Renews ‘Transparent’

Transparent renew

Amazon first started releasing original series last year, but it wasn’t until this fall’s Transparent that they had a real smash hit. The dramedy debuted to great critical acclaim, and attracted enough viewers to “smash Prime Instant Video records.” And so, because Amazon is not stupid, it’s going back for more. The company has just re-upped Transparent for a second season to premiere in 2015.

Maze Runner Sequel The Death Cure movie

One of the trends that I almost included in my list of 9 current movie and television trends I hate is when Hollywood decides to split the last book in a series of film adaptations in two (or in the case of The Hobbit, in three). Sure, sometimes a book is huge, like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and you would think that the only way to bring the story to the screen is to allow enough time so that its not hacked to its core. But often its more of a money grab from Hollywood (remember, its the show BUSINESS — why have one successful movie when you can squeeze it into two?), and even the case of long books (like Hallows) they end up feeling like half a story and the result is less satisfying than a movie with a full story arc.

Well Wes Ball is currently adapting The Maze Runner book series into movies, and the first film was very successful (over $200 million worldwide) and warrants a follow up. The Scorch Trials will hit theaters on September 18th 2015, with plans to hopefully complete the young-adult post-apocalyptic science fiction trilogy of books by James Dashner. Now director Wes Ball has come out publicly saying he isn’t planning to split the third book into two films. Find out the reason why The Death Cure movie adaptation will remain one film, after the jump.

In the Heat of the Night

At some point, it’s probably going to become easier to name the classic movies that haven’t been turned into TV shows than the ones that have. The latest big-screen property to transition to the small-screen is In the Heat of the Night, the 1967 drama starring Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger. Well… at least it’s not another ’80s comedy? (And it’s not the first time this film has spawned a TV series.)

Showtime has picked up a new In the Heat of the Night series from Tate Taylor, who previously tackled Southern race relations with The Help. Hit the jump for more details on the In the Heat of the Night TV series.
