Another year, another awards season, another New York Film Critics Circle Awards ceremony.
Boyhood emerged as the big winner at this year's NYFCC Awards, winning the big prize for Best Film, as well as Best Director for Richard Linklater and Best Supporting Actress for Patricia Arquette.
Early in 2015, Earth's Mightiest Heroes will reassemble for additional photography on Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Sometimes, when you hear about reshoots, it means a project needs extensive reworking. That was the case with World War Z, which needed a whole new third act a few years back.
At Marvel Studios, however, extra shooting days well after principal photography are part of each and every production, with reshoots baked right into the budget and shooting schedule. This allows the studio to iron out any kinks, or course, but it also creates opportunities for new crowd-pleasing moments or Easter Eggs.
In Nightcrawler, for which he just received an Independent Spirit Award nomination, Jake Gyllenhaal is unnervingly gaunt.
The first image from next year's Southpaw reveals a pretty staggering physical transformation for the erstwhile Donnie Darko.
This first look reveals that Southpaw-Gyllenhaal is just as unnerving as Nightcrawler-Gyllenhaal, but for the opposite reason: this Gyllenhaal is shredded like lettuce, ripped and aggro as all hell.
Actor Hugo Weaving has had pivotal roles in some of the most successful movie franchises of all-time!
Weaving is probably best known for playing the creepy Agent Smith in The Matrix trilogy. But he also played Elrond in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, as well as the recent The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to an end with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opening in theaters on December 17th. As if that wasn’t enough, he portrayed Steve Rogers’ archenemy the Red Skull in Captain America: The First Avenger. Weaving can now be seen playing another great villain in the new Australian crime drama The Mule, which opens in theaters on November 21st.
The Mule was written by Angus Sampson (Insidious: Chapter 2), Leigh Whannell (Saw), and Jaime Browne, and was directed by Sampson and Tony Mahony. The film follows Ray Jenkins (Sampson), a first time drug mule that is caught by a questionably ethical law enforcement officer named Croft (Weaving). John Noble (TV’s Fringe) plays mob boss Pat Shepherd, the man whose drugs are in Ray’s stomach. Shepherd holds Ray’s partner Gavin (Whannell) responsible for retrieving his drugs through any means necessary. Meanwhile, Ray and Croft come to an unspoken mutual understanding that might just save both of their lives.
I recently had the absolute pleasure of speaking with the great Hugo Weaving about his work on The Mule, as well as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, more Matrix movies, and not playing Red Skull in Captain America: Civil War. The talented veteran actor discussed his latest movie, how he got involved with the project, his character’s unusual moral compass, working with two directors, returning to Middle-earth for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the possibility of appearing in another Matrix movie, and why he will not be reprising his role of Red Skull in Captain America: Civil War or any other future Marvel films.
For the second consecutive year running, Americans chose to spend a few hours of their Thanksgiving holiday wallowing in the misery of a brutal dystopia on the brink of all-out war.
Yes, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 is the number one movie in North America again, easily fending off two wildly different new wide releases.
The best trailer for next month's Exodus: Gods and Kings isn't technically a trailer at all.
Like the San Franciscans and Los Angelenos who know the Big One could come at any moment, the inhabitants of Middle Earth's Lake-Town must've always known that someday, Smaug would rain dragon-fire down on their village.
That's just what's happening in some new pictures from next month's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
If you were planning on hitting your local multiplex just to catch the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, cancel your plans.
