steve jobs movie flashbacks

In November 2012 we learned that Aaron SorkinsSteve Jobs biopic would be presented in three long real-time sequences written around specific Apple keynote events. Now that the movie is filming, under the direction of filmmaker Danny Boyle, we are starting to learn more about the feature film.

Last week video footage was released from the the film set outside of Steve Jobs’ old home in Los Altos, California where they are filming the garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak began the Apple empire. This led a lot of people to wonder if Sorkin’s screenplay has changed. Will the film still be set during three Apple keynotes? And if so, how is does the Apple garage work into things? Find out about the Steve Jobs movie flashbacks, after the jump.

The Best Movie Animal Performances of 2014

Best Animal Performances of 2014

I was watching Gone Girl for the fourth time and admiring how David Fincher (and his cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth) majestically shot Ben Affleck‘s character Nick Dunne’s cat and I began to wonder about the cat’s true role in the story. The cat is featured too prominently to be just a background prop. What did the cat mean?

As I thought about this I began to realize that there had been a lot of big screen kitties this year. The New York Times notes in their review that “cats are the new dogs,” and judging from the list of animals in this article, they might be right. But as I started to think about it more, it wasn’t just cats but dogs and some actually amazing performances by other animals in this past year of film. So the list of best animal performances of 2014 grew and grew. After the jump you will find my examination of why 2014 was the year of animal movie performances and what it all means. Read More »


Lost in all the commotion surrounding Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview is the question of whether the movie itself is actually worth seeing, for reasons other than patriotism. Personally I’m a fan, but your mileage may vary if you’re not into that kind of thing. So to help you make up your mind, Sony has released one final The Interview red-band trailer. Watch it after the jump.  Read More »

the Interview theaters

It’s been a strange story for The Interview so far, but the film is in theaters now thanks to a last-minute plan by Sony, spurred in part by the efforts of Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League and folks at the Art House Convergence.

And whether or not you’re interested in seeing the film, there’s another good angle to this release: despite being a studio film, the movie is primarily in independent theaters. These are the same businesses that might otherwise struggle as a glut of new releases hits the big chain cinemas. Many of these showings are likely to sell out (tickets might already be gone for Cinefamily in LA), so that’s a good boon for those businesses.

Below is a list of all The Interview theaters — or as close to all of them as we’ve been able to collate so far. There may be a few more, but this is a fairly comprehensive rundown. Read More »

the Interview threats

Perpetrators of the Sony hack got a lot more serious today when they issued a threat that went far beyond stealing internal emails and documents.  “Remember the 11th of September 2001,” says the threat. “We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.) Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.” In this case, “the places” refers to theaters showing The Interview, the film from writer/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in which Rogen and James Franco play a couple of media types who are recruited to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

While no link between North Korea’s government and the hackers (who ironically call themselves “Guardians of Peace”) has been proven, the threat stirred up fears of action that goes beyond the digital realm. And even as Franco and Rogen canceled promo appearances meant to pitch The Interview to various audiences, the Department of Homeland Security says there’s no credible info to indicate an actual threat.

Update: Sony has told theaters there won’t be a problem if they decide to drop The Interview, despite any prior bookings.

AMC Orders ‘Preacher’ Pilot

preacher pilot

An adaptation of the profane, funny and strange Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series Preacher never got off the ground as a film, but the TV series adaptation is steadily moving forward. Developed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is the End, The Interview), the series now has a pilot order. AMC made the deal for a Preacher pilot, scripted by Rogen and Goldberg.

That means we’ll soon hear casting choices for the characters, likely beginning with Jesse Custer, the preacher of the title who is imbued with the power of Godly persuasion… and wants to confront God as a result. Read More »
