Forty years ago to the day, a mischievous sprite of a Frenchman illegally strung a wire between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and proceeded to walk on said wire 1,368 feet in the air for almost an hour.
Philippe Petit's beautiful, death-defying stunt and the heist-style preparations for it are the stuff of legend, the stuff that would make a great movie.
Robert Zemeckis is working on it with The Walk, which casts Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Petit and just wrapped up production.
An extended clip from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles excerpts a string of little scenes leading up to the reboot's action finale.
Warner Bros. has blinked in its game of release date chicken with Marvel, unexpectedly rescheduling Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice outside the summer movie season.
But that's only part of the story, as the studio has scheduled nine – nine! – DC movies to open between 2016 and 2020.
Next summer's Terminator reboot/sequel has a new title, and it's a humdinger.
We've all been calling this mysterious new movie Terminator: Genesis, but it turns out that wasn't quite right. The actual title of the fifth installment in this unkillable franchise is, in fact, Terminator: Genisys.
Dame Helen Mirren is the Queen of Hollywood!
The English actress, who has been acting for over 40-years, looks just as amazing at 69 as she did at 29. Beginning her illustrious career with the Royal Shakespeare Company, Dame Helen went on to appear in such critically acclaimed films as Caligula, Excalibur, White Nights, The Madness of King George, Gosford Park, The Clearing, and Calendar Girls, not to mention her popular BBC series Prime Suspect.
But it was her role as Queen Elizabeth in The Queen that earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress and international icon status. She would later be featured in a string of high profile movies like National Treasure: Book of Secrets, RED, Arthur, Hitchcock, Monsters University, and RED 2. Her latest film, director Lasse Hallstrom’s (Safe Haven) The Hundred-Foot Journey, was produced by Steven Spielberg (Schindler's List) and Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniel’s The Butler), and opens in theaters on August 8th.
The Hundred-Foot Journey tells the story of the Kadam family, who after suffering deep family tragedy move to France to open their own restaurant. They soon clash with Madame Mallory (Mirren), proprietress of a celebrated French restaurant across the street, until undeniable chemistry causes the Madame to take gifted young chef Hassan (Manish Dayal) under her wing. In addition to Mirren and Dayal, the movie also features veteran actor Om Puri (Gandhi), and newcomer Charlotte Le Bon. The film was written by Steven Knight (Amazing Grace), and based on the book of the same name by Richard C. Morais.
I recently had the immense pleasure of spending a Saturday morning sitting around a table at the Four Seasons in Los Angeles with a small number of journalists and Dame Helen Mirren. The Oscar-winning actress was absolutely lovely and a delight to speak with. She discussed The Hundred-Foot Journey, how she chooses projects, why she wanted to play this role, her co-star Om Puri, and what she wants from a director when working on set.
99 Homes represents an opportunity to see outstanding thespians Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon in a film that requires neither of them to wear superheroic costumes.
The first theatrical trailer for The Theory of Everything promises that a movie about Stephen Hawking can be plenty cinematic and undeniably emotional.
It helps that two really great young British actors, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, star as the renowned astrophysicist and his wife, who stayed by Hawking's side as a motor neuron disease changed both of their lives irrevocably.
If your biggest complaint about The Hobbit movies is that they're just not long enough, then Warner Bros. has some sweet news for you.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is getting an Extended Edition Blu-ray that adds a whopping 25 minutes to the middle chapter in this already huge trilogy. And a sampling of the excised material in those 25 minutes is now available to watch thanks to a new official clip free to view online.
Today has turned out to be particularly patriotic.
First, co-directors Joe and Anthony Russo shed a tiny bit of light on Captain America 3, saying, among other things, that the next star-spangled sequel will be “bringing some new elements to the table that will give us a twist on Winter Soldier.”
Now, Marvel is goosing anticipation for Captain America: The Winter Soldier's imminent Blu-ray release with two full deleted scenes that may not have made the final cut but are still very much worth watching.
