Universal Pictures has finally and officially announced the director of Jurassic Park 4, and in the process revealed that the third sequel will be shot in 3D.
Sorry, anybody holding out hope that Steven Spielberg would return as director, because the job belongs to Colin Trevorrow.
When Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson teamed up for 2011's The Adventures of Tintin, it was with the promise that, for a sequel, the two would switch places, with Jackson directing and Spielberg producing another 3D motion-capture romp for the boy reporter.
So what gives? When could Jackson find the time to actually make the next The Adventures of Tintin?
According to Spielberg, the hope is have the next film in theaters for the holiday season of 2015.
Christopher Nolan's next directorial endeavor will definitely be Interstellar.
Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures have announced that the mysterious science-fiction adventure will hit regular theaters and IMAX on November 7, 2014.
It’s been twenty years since Steven Spielberg finished shooting Jurassic Park in Hawaii and boarded a plane to Eastern Europe to begin filming what many regard as his masterpiece, Schindler’s List.
“I can’t believe it’s been twenty years,” said Spielberg as spoke with iamROGUE.com and a select group of journalists last Wednesday at the Chandler School in Pasadena to celebrate the film’s Blu-ray release; as well as the launch of the IWitness Video Challenge, a new program from his Shoah Foundation. “It doesn’t feel like twenty years at all. And we’re almost to March 1st. March 1st was the very first day of filming in Krakow on Schindler’s List. Over the last two decades, I’d always hope that the film and the Shoah Foundation would know no bounds of age or generations or geography. And today, as we launch the IWitness Video Challenge, I’ve never believed more in the idea that acts of kindness do not always have to be random.”
The Oscars are here!
That's right Rogues, Oscar fever just got terminal. The 85th Annual Academy Awards ceremony was held tonight at the Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles, California, with Seth MacFarlane bringing a self-referential sensibility to the hosting duties.
On a night of televised pomp and circumstance, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – a 5,765 member-strong organization that is 94% white, 77% male, and 54% over 60 years-old – anointed the winners of the 2013 Academy Awards.
With Oscar ballots due Tuesday, and less than a week to go until the awards are handed out on Sunday, February 24th, let's take a look at how things stand in the race for the gold. This is undoubtedly the most unpredictable Oscar race in years, and there has not been this much uncertainty since Crash faced off against Brokeback Mountain back in 2006.
Abraham Lincoln has never been more popular! In just under a year there have been five different films released about our 16th President including the multi Oscar-nominated Lincoln; directed by Steven Spielberg, the horror/comedy Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, as well as its low-budget knockoff Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, the National Geographic Channel movie Killing Lincoln; narrated by Tom Hanks and based on the best selling book by Bill O’Reilly, and now Saving Lincoln, which opened in theaters on February 15th.
Saving Lincoln tells the true story of the former President (Tom Amandes) and his bodyguard, U.S. Marshall Ward Hill Lamon (Lea Coco). The film was directed and co-writen by Salvador Litvak (When Do We Eat?), and is unique in that it was shot on a green screen stage using a new technique called CineCollage, which superimposes actual Civil War era photographs as the movie’s backdrop. In addition to Amandes and Lamon, the film also stars Bruce Davidson (X-Men), and actress Penelope Ann Miller as Mary Todd Lincoln.
Miller’s career spans over twenty-five years and not only did she appear in last year’s Academy Award-winning film The Artist, the actress has also been featured in such popular movies as Adventures in Babysitting, Biloxi Blues, Big Top Pee-wee, Dead Bang, Kindergarten Cop, Chaplin, The Shadow, The Relic, and Along Came a Spider. But her real claim to fame is that she truly holds a special place in cinematic history as the only actress to ever star opposite the three greatest American actors ever to grace the big screen: Marlon Brando (The Freshman), Robert De Niro (Awakenings), and Al Pacino (Carlito’s Way).
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Penelope Ann Miller about her work on Saving Lincoln, as well as her experiences acting opposite the trifecta of cinematic greats. The veteran actress discussed her new film, why Hollywood is fascinated with Lincoln, what we can learn from his presidency, researching Mary Todd Lincoln’s life, the CineCollage technique, performing on a green screen stage, and what she learned from working with Brando, De Niro, and Pacino.
In a development sure to delight fans of alliteration and assonance the world over, Ben Affleck's Argo won big at the BAFTAs today, taking home trophies for Best Director and the most coveted prize, Best Film.
Though he's got a new movie arriving this April, Michael Bay is currently shedding just a tiny bit more light on the robotic fisticuffs of 2014's Transformers 4, emphatically reiterating that though the sequel features a new human cast and redesigned robots in disguise, it is not a reboot.
Because folks just aren't cognizant enough of movie awards this time of year, ABC and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have unveiled a new TV spot promoting the 85th Annual Academy Awards.
