JASON STATHAM IN HIS FUNNIEST AND HARD-HITTING ACTION STUNTS IN “SPY”

Image
In the latest all-out high-octane action and laugh-out-loud “Spy” movie, Jason Statham describes his role in the film as “different from anything I’ve done, and it’s been great fun.”

Statham stars with Academy Award nominees Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law along with Golden Globe nominee Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Allison Janney with the special participation of Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson. The movie brings at the center of the action the world’s unlikely heroine, Susan Cooper (McCarthy), a brilliant, intuitive and relatable desk agent, who has worked in the dreary basement at CIA headquarters for years. Her colleague is the charming, sophisticated and self-absorbed super spy Bradley Fine, played by Jude Law. An unsung hero, Cooper is the one who guides her partner via a computer and an earpiece, when he is out on perilous assignments, steering him through sticky situations around the globe. Fine gets the credit for all the successes, but it is actually Coope…

RIVETING MYSTERY UNFOLDS IN DISNEY'S “TOMORROWLAND”

Image
The upcoming mystery adventure film “Tomorrowland” starring George Clooney traces its origins from a theme park attraction Walt Disney himself created as a section of Disneyland in 1955. It was a time when Americans imagined an optimistic future. Over the years, particularly in the 1970s, the public’s view of the future started to grow dark.

This shift intrigued writer/producer Damon Lindelof (TV's “Lost”), so when he began to synthesize the story for “Tomorrowland,” he looked for what the theme park attraction meant and how it could be represented in a storyline. “I really wanted to recapture that earlier optimism,” comments Lindelof.

Then Lindelof heard about a box that had been discovered accidentally in a closet at the Disney Studios. The mystery box contained all sorts of fascinating models and blueprints, photographs and letters related to the inception of Tomorrowland and the 1964 World’s Fair. Lindelof was excited by the find and recalls, “I began to imagine that the content…

Then the rest of the records fell one day after the o…

“HOT PURSUIT” - NEW COMEDY FROM “THE PROPOSAL” DIRECTOR

Image
From Anne Fletcher, the director of the hit comedy “The Proposal” which starred Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, comes New Line Cinema's new female buddy comedy “Hot Pursuit.”

In the film, super-straight arrow Officer Cooper (Reese Witherspoon) is both honored and thrilled to be assigned the seemingly simple task of escorting mob wife Daniella Riva (Sofia Vergara) across Texas, where she and her husband will testify against a major drug lord. It’s a rare day out of the property room, and the intensely enthusiastic petite policewoman vows not to let her captain down. Having already earned the unfortunate distinction of prompting her own verb within the precinct, she is determined not to “Cooper it” this time.

However, upon meeting the dynamic Mrs. Riva—a curvaceous Colombian beauty with opinions as strong as her accent—it’s clear this will be no walk in the park. And before they can even agree on what high heels the statuesque Daniella can pack, the cops and Mr. Riva are ambushed, m…

YOUNG ACTORS PLAY A DEADLY GAME IN “UNFRIENDED”

Image
The principal cast of Universal Pictures' new horror thriller “Unfriended” consists of six characters who become trapped in a game of cat and mouse, as a mystery chatroom user torments them with secrets they thought would never be uncovered and pushes them into horrifying actions.

Working on tight time constraints, casting director John McAlary brought talented actors in for auditions, but, as the performers would soon learn, they weren’t average auditions.

In the beginning, the team had actors read in the room with them, but it soon became quite clear that they needed to audition in front of a computer. So, the casting process took place just that way, in two different rooms, via video chat, and the cast was chosen based upon those auditions. Once they assembled their top choices, director Leo Gabriadze and his key crew conducted a mix and match of sorts, in which they took different groups of six people and had them do a scene together. In this, each was asked to find their charac…

Image
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, “Far From The Madding Crowd” is the story of Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), a fiercely independent and spirited young woman who inherits her uncle’s farm.

REVIEW | Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

Image
After 2012's Marvel's The Avengers, Joss Whedon is back to take us on another action-packed adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In the Avengers: Age of Ultron, the team faces a super villain, the titular Ultron, a half-Joker, Birdman-voiced, wise-cracking super-intelligent form with a Messianic complex. Ultron wants world peace— but it's an entirely different world peace that Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) had in mind when he jumpstarted the birth of Ultron.

Conflicts—and romance—spark within the Avengers team, further complicating their mission to save the world. Two additional villains, who are staunch supporters of Ultron, are also getting in the way: Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olson).

The film, which runs a lengthy 2.5 hours, instantly opens with a climactic action sequence, shot in a single long take, and a little bit too speedy to be appreciated. The rest of the fight scenes are the usual explosive, spectacular and world…

Image
They became box-office movie stars with the release of last year's monster hit “Godzilla.” Now, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen make their debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when they take on the roles of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively, in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

One of the loose ends to clean up after the Battle of New York in the first “Avengers” film finds our Super Heroes in Eastern European Sokovia. This is where the Avengers encounter two new characters in the film – Pietro and Wanda Maximoff aka Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.

Producer Kevin Feige says, “They have a very interesting introduction to The Avengers, which is why we wanted to use them in this film. They are not fans of The Avengers at all. They’re from this Eastern European country known as Sokovia that used to be a S.H.I.E.L.D post, but Hydra has been operating out of and it’s not the nicest organization.”

For Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who was cast as in the role of Pietro aka Quic…

First Look: Oscar Isaac & Garrett Hedlund Star in William Monahan's 'Mojave'

Image
After scripting thrillers like The Departed, Body of Lies and Edge of Darkness, in addition to making his directorial debut with ‘London Boulevard’, screenwriter William Monahan is back behind the camera a new thriller called ‘Mojave’. Here the first photos of the film with future Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac and TRON Legacy lead Garrett Hedlund.

‘Mojave’ is written and directed by William Monahan, director of London Boulevard and Oscar-winning screenwriter of Martin Scorsese's The Departed, Edge of Darkness and Body of Lies. Armed with little more than a knife and two handles of vodka, an on-edge desolated, violent Hollywood director (Garrett Hedlund of TRON Legacy) sets out to the Mojave Desert looking for solitude. But what he ends up finding is a homicidal, chameleon-like drifter (Oscar Isaac of A Most Violent Year) brandishing a rifle and claiming to be the Devil.

‘MOJAVE’ is released and distributed by CAPTIVE CINEMA. (PR)

Baa-hind the scenes of Shaun the Sheep: The Movie

Image
Is Aardman Animations about to have its biggest hit at the box office? The Bristol-based company behind Wallace and Gromit is quietly hopeful that after several successful but not quite blockbuster-level movies, including Flushed Away and Arthur Christmas, they might have a global franchise on their hands: all thanks to an unassuming sheep called Shaun.

First glimpsed in a small role rescuing Gromit from jail in 1995 short film A Close Shave, the sparky Shaun has since surpassed odd couple Wallace and Gromit to become Aardman’s most commercially successful creation.

“Wallace and Gromit have been loved for so long but in terms of sheer international exposure Shaun The Sheep is the most successful,” says Peter Lord who co-founded Aardman Animations with David Sproxton in 1976.

Quite so. The TV series chronicling his misadventures, launched in 2007, is a smash in 170 countries.

Now he has his own film, Shaun The Sheep Movie, a baa-rnstorming romp (stop-motion animated in the Aardman trad…

“PAN” RELEASE DATE IN PH MOVES TO OCT 8, 2015

Image
Giving both the film and the filmmakers some extra breathing room, the opening date of Warner Bros. Pictures’ action adventure “Pan” has been moved to fall and will begin its global launch with the new U.S. release date of October 9, 2015 (and Oct. 8 in the Philippines). The announcement was made April 21 by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

In making the announcement, Fellman said, “We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense. Moving the film to the heart of the fall will allow us more time to screen the picture, enabling us to capitalize on what we anticipate will be strong word of mouth.”


Kwan Vandenberg added, “Peter Pan is a beloved figure the world over, and the fall corridor is perfect for this epic adventure story that explores the origins of this young hero. In many markets we can take ad…

REVIEW: Kid Kulafu (2015)

Image
Paul Soriano's highly celebrated Manny Pacquiao biopic Kid Kulafu solely focuses on the National Fist's childhood, from his humble beginnings in the breathtaking mountainous regions of Bukidnon up until his first amateur boxing competitions— a foreshadowing of a promising career in the sport.
The film boasts of glorious, artful and intimate cinematography and excellent editing, providing a deep sense of time and place. Each scene is visually rich, exuberant, confident and inspired, instantly engaging the viewer into a visually superb experience.
What the movie provided aesthetically, though, lacked in emotional engagement, as most of the characters, including Pacquiao himself (Buboy Villar), despite their natural performances, are superficially portrayed. The film lacks substantial dialogue and strong character personalities that would have given us a deeper relationship with the main players. Pacquaio's meltdown after the death of a friend, for one, did not emotionally c…

DOWNEY FEELS “AGE OF ULTRON” MARKS END OF ERA, START OF NEW

Image
Fan-favorite Robert Downey Jr. reprises his seminal portrayal of Tony Stark/Iron Man for the fifth time in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” In Marvel’s “The Avengers” Tony Stark struggled to become a team player and in “Iron Man 3” audiences saw him transcend his dependency on the tech that was keeping him alive. So where does he go now?

To Downey Jr., the answer is simple: “There’s all this unfinished business. There’s the matter of a certain wormhole that opened over New York and the imminent threat that still implies, so Tony has turned his attentions more toward a bit of a post-Reagan-era, Star-Wars-type notion and he likes to call it Ultron.”

Right from the beginning of the project, Downey Jr. found a lot to like in writer/director Joss Whedon’s compelling screenplay. “To me it’s further developing the complexities of the relationship between all the main folks,” comments the actor. “I like that Thor has a beef with me and then eventually has to say I’m right. It’s just interest…
