Joel Edgerton Joins Depp In Black Mass

Big day on the Croisette for Joel Edgerton. The Australian actor just took the bows for the Cannes opening night film The Great Gatsby, and he just closed a deal to star alongside Johnny Depp in the Cross Creek crime thriller Black Mass, which Barry Levinson is directing. The picture is a co-production between Cross Creek and Nigel Sinclair and Guy East’s Exclusive Media, with the two entities co-financing and Universal Pictures releasing in the U.S. through Cross Creek’s distribution deal with the studio.

Whitey Bulger rose to the top of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List when he disappeared for a decade before he could be put behind bars. Many felt he could never have gotten that far without the help of John Connolly, an FBI agent and childhood pal of Bulger and his brother. Connolly was tasked with bringing down the Italian mob, and he was aided by Bulger, who burnished his own position as Boston crime kingpin by getting rid of the competition for his Winter Hill gang. Edgerton will play Connolly, who was lauded for his work before things went south for him. He was eventually convicted of racketeering and obstruction of justice for aiding Bulger, who is currently in a Massachusetts state prison for second-degree murder. Edgerton gets a meaty role in a story about a law enforcement officer with conflicted loyalties.

The film’s title comes from the 2001 Dick Lehr/Gerald O’Neill New York Times bestseller Black Mass: The True Story Of An Unholy Alliance Between The FBI And The Irish Mob. The script was written by Mark Mallouk, and the long-gestating movie got the third act it needed when Bulger was captured in California in summer 2011, after he spent a decade on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.

Bulger was a notoriously ruthless Boston mob kingpin who was the basis for characters like the one that Jack Nicholson played in the Martin Scorsese-directed The Departed and Pete Postlethwaite played in the Ben Affleck-directed The Town (Affleck has his own Whitey Bulger project scripted by Boardwalk Empire creator Terrence Winter with Matt Damon expected to play the mobster, but he’ll next direct Dennis Lehane’s Live By Night so there’s no way that film will beat this one into production). Even as he was masterminding a violent gang–the federal case against him alleges 19 murders–Bulger was an FBI informant, a role he took on discreetly to take down a rival gang, but the tables were turned on him. After the Feds closed in on their targets, they double crossed Bulger and ultimately prosecuted him, along with his partner in crime and the original FBI agent working with him.

The film will be produced by Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson, John Lesher, and Christi Dembrowski, Depp’s partner in Infinitum Nihil. Exclusive Media’s Tobin Armbrust, President Worldwide Production and Acquisitions and Cross Creek Pictures Sr. VP of Production Adam Kassan, will oversee production. Alex Walton, Exclusive Media’s President of International Sales and Distribution, will introduce Black Mass to overseas buyers at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin.

Samuel L. Jackson To Join Barely Lethal

After spending the last couple of years overseeing a handful of superheroes, Samuel L. Jackson should have no trouble handling a teenage assassin.

Samuel L. Jackson is in final negotiations to co-star with Hailee Steinfeld in the indie “Barely Lethal” that Brett Ratner is producing.

Kyle Newman is helming with John D’Arco penning the script. John Cheng will join Ratner as a producer through their Rat Entertainment banner along with Ted Hartley and Vanessa Coifman for RKO Pictures and Hopscotch Pictures’ Sukee Chew.

Story follows a 16-year-old international assassin yearning for a “normal” adolescence who fakes her own death and enrolls as a senior in a suburban high school. Jackson will play her mentor who trains her in the program.

The last time Jackson tangled with assassins was when he teamed with Geena Davis in the 1996 action pic “The Long Kiss Goodnight.”

Always one of the busiest actors in town, Jackson lends his voice later this summer to the DreamWorks Animation pic “Turbo” and can also be seen in MGM’s reboot of “Robocop.”

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Review. One Of The Best Summer Films Of 2013

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS Review
By: MattInRC


As a diehard Star Trek fan, I've seen Science Fiction evolve over the years, with the very good Star Trek: The Original Series leading the way in my early youth. To me, the adventures of Kirk, Spock, and Bones were the epitome of human drama in space, with The Enterprise hosting this trio of bold brave men exploring the universe. Their interactions and debates were as enjoyable as every Vulcan Nerve Pinch by Spock and high-flying drop kick that Kirk ever made. To Kirk, the Enterprise was a living thing, with as much emotion as its chief engineer Montgomery Scott. Spock and Bones were living representations of his morals and values, and their friendship bound the three together as this soap opera set amongst the backdrop of deep space paved the way for Star Wars, and later a successul string of Trek movies and television series. But, Trek was never so good after TOS, with the could-have-been (The Next Generation), the blah (Deep Space Nine and Voyager), and the disastrous (Enterprise). But as of late, there's been a glimmer of hope: 2009's Star Trek successfully rebooted the franchise into an alternate reality, even though its plot had holes as big as a temporal displacement. With the release this week of the nearly perfect Star Trek: Into Darkness, old fans like me can finally rejoice that the franchise is triumphantly back.


Set several months after their encounter with the futuristic Romulan Nero, Captain James T. Kirk (Chris Pine, Rise of the Guardians) and crew attempt to save a pre-industrious civilization from the imminent destruction of a massive volcano. When his first officer Spock (Zachary Quinto, Heroes) is placed in mortal danger, Kirk ignores The Prime Directive to rescue his Vulcan friend, exposing their massive starship to an unsuspecting people who soon begin to worship it. Although he's saved the people of Nibiru, Kirk has angered Starfleet Command, including Admiral Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood, Young Justice), who is forced to demote Kirk. Meanwhile, a mysterious explosion destroys a London archival building, courtesy of the terrorist John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock). He's a former Starfleet officer whose incredible strength, intelligence, and dark intentions make him public enemy #1. After a second attack leaves most of Starfleet's commanders dead, Kirk is reinstated to hunt Harrison down, only to learn later that the terrorist's name is just a cover, and that he is instead a very popular character from the Star Trek universe. As news of 'Harrison's' capture reaches Starfleet, another starship arrives to attack the Enterprise, sending its crew on a high-speed chase back to Earth. With 'Harrison' promising to help, Kirk launches a last desperate mission to defeat the Starfleet traitors and Harrison, whatever the cost.


Based on the alternate timeline universe created by Director JJ Abrams (Mission Impossible III), Darkness is at once a rip-roaring action-packed adventure, but also excels as a smart and character-driven story about friendships, family, and the steps we're willing to take to protect them. In so many ways, we see those TOS friendships ignite once more, with spirited debates, wise-cracking jokes, and a genuine feeling of camaraderie that feels like an old shoe. Quinto, Urban, and Pine fit seamlessly together on screen, strenghtening these classic characters by turning the tables on our expectations and delivering a higher level of drama that hasn't been seen since Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. But, it's also the emergence of Cumberbatch who steals so many scenes, proving that he's ready for a big moment in the sun. His brilliance and darkness is encompassing, as he attempts to manipulate Kirk and crew before finally turning on them. Frnakly we haven't seen a bad guy of this sort in the franchise since Khan, and Cumberbatch fits nicely into that role. Credit this deep character development to Writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman (Transformers series), who continue to hone their craft while complementing Abrams' incredible eye for sprawling and impactful space scenes. If Abrams can do this to Star Trek, what reimaginings will he bring to Star Wars?


Composer Michael Giacchino (Up) crafts a soundtrack filled both with fast-paced war pieces as well as tender ballads, especially near film's end. And yes, the familiar TOS theme by Alexander Courage comes out to play just enough to remind us veterans of the series' pedigree. Abrams is also a master at casting, and his additions of Carol Marcus (Alice Eve, The Raven) and former Enterprise baddie Peter Weller (Robocop) are perfectly suited. This all adds up to a film that feels remarkably quick (even though it's 130 minutes long), but only because it's so well made, locking us in from the start and refusing to let go until either 'Harrison' is finished with us or Kirk rules the day. I couldn't say that about 2009's Star Trek, but I can emphatically call this mission a total success.

Star Trek: Into Darkness is one of the best Summer films of 2013, and could see a long run through the season. With its perfect casting, immersive story, and top-notch directing, audiences will be hard-pressed to make a case against seeing it. At last, we have the Trek we need and deserve. It's rated PG-13 and is playing in IMAX and 3D everywhere.

ANGRY BIRDS Film Coming In 2016

ROVIO’S ANGRY BIRDS FEATURE FILM NESTS AT SONY PICTURES ENTERTAINMENT
Animated 3D Comedy Slated For July 1, 2016

CULVER CITY, Calif., May 15, 2013 – Sony Pictures Entertainment has won the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to the eagerly anticipated Angry Birds animated film, making it one of the most high-profile deals of the year. The 3D film is being developed, produced, and financed by Rovio Entertainment and will be released worldwide by Sony Pictures on July 1, 2016. Several major studios pursued the global film rights in recent weeks, with Sony Pictures Entertainment emerging as the winner.

Michael Lynton, Chairman & CEO of Sony Pictures Entertainment, Amy Pascal, Co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio Entertainment jointly announced their partnership today. John Cohen and David Maisel – producer of Despicable Me and executive producer of Iron Man, respectively – are both on board for the new Angry Birds feature film. Cohen will serve as producer and Maisel is executive producer.

Commenting on the announcement, Mikael Hed said, “Sony impressed us with their great attitude, determination, and professionalism. They convinced us that we have found the right partners and team to help us market and distribute our first motion picture. Michael, Amy, Jeff Blake, Sony’s marketing and distribution head, and their teams will be the best possible collaborators as we get set to take our franchise to the next level.”

Lynton and Pascal said, “Every studio in town would love to add Angry Birds to their slate. There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table. We’re thrilled to be distributing this film and we hope this is just the beginning of what will be a long relationship with Rovio as we look for ways to work on future projects together.”

David Maisel and John Cohen said, “We are very excited to join with Sony Pictures in presenting this movie to the world in 2016 and we will have many more announcements as we begin production in the coming months.”

Angry Birds is one of the world’s biggest entertainment franchises, starting in 2009 with the original mobile game that remains the number one paid app of all time. Angry Birds has expanded rapidly into entertainment, publishing, and licensing to become a beloved international brand.

Angry Birds has been praised for its great value and simple, casual gameplay. Players use a slingshot to launch birds at green pigs in an attempt to get their eggs back, with the game setting the model for what is possible in terms of game development and commercial success. To date, the Angry Birds and Bad Piggies games have been downloaded more than 1.7 billion times across platforms and versions.

The upcoming movie marks Rovio Entertainment’s first foray into feature films, although fans have already been introduced to the Angry Birds world with the weekly Angry Birds Toons animated series. Rovio launched the series in March through its Angry Birds apps as well as on select video-on-demand channel providers, Smart TVs, connected devices, and on select TV networks around the world. Paving the way for a full-length feature film, Angry Birds Toons has been a massive success for Rovio clocking in over 150 million views from the Angry Birds apps alone within the first six weeks.

While known for distributing world renowned motion picture franchises such as Spider-Man, Sony Pictures has been building a strong reputation in contemporary animation through its house production unit, Sony Pictures Animation, and hit films including Hotel Transylvania, The Smurfs, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Surf’s Up, Open Season, and Aardman’s Arthur Christmas and The Pirates! Band of Misfits.

RED BAND Trailer for V/H/S/2

The Brand New RED BAND Trailer for V/H/S/2 is out now! Check it out exclusively on Yahoo! Movies:

V/H/S/2 will be on iTunes/On Demand June 6, 2013 and in theaters July 12, 2013.

Directed by Simon Barrett, Adam Wingard, Edúardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Timo Tjahjanto, Gareth Huw Evans and Jason Eisener

Inside a darkened house looms a column of TVs littered with VHS tapes, a pagan shrine to forgotten analog gods. The screens crackle and pop endlessly with monochrome vistas of static—white noise permeating the brain and fogging concentration. But you must fight the urge to relax: this is no mere movie night. Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

Watch the trailer after the Jump...



From the demented minds that brought you last year’s V/H/S comes V/H/S/2, an all-new anthology of dread, madness, and gore. This follow-up ventures even further down the demented path blazed by its predecessor, discovering new and terrifying territory in the genre. This is modern horror at its most inventive, shrewdly subverting our expectations about viral videos in ways that are just as satisfying as they are sadistic. The result is the rarest of all tapes—a second generation with no loss of quality.

The new gated content will be free to current D23 Members; plus D23 is launching a new free level of membership, which will include access to this incredible content. D23.com will continue to offer the latest Disney news free to all guests who visit the site. But D23 Members can unlock even more magic in each section by logging in and accessing content whenever a golden key is shown.

“We’re creating a unique destination that celebrates, in all respects, the essence of Disney,” says Steven Clark, head of D23. “We believe the new site will offer one of the most engaging Disney experiences yet—with even more to come in the future. We look forward to debuting the new D23.com to our current members as well as to new ones from around the world.”

The reimagined D23.com will feature exclusive celebrity interviews; vintage film clips; rarely seen artwork and photography; treasures from the Walt Disney Archives; behind-the-scenes previews of new movies and theme park attractions; and more.

Website highlights at launch will include:

Plus an exclusive with Phineas and Ferb’s popular “evil mastermind” Dr. Heinz Doofenschmirtz, who talks about his truly devious plans… and Christmas.

· D’scovered – Treasures unearthed by the Walt Disney Archives. In the coming weeks the Archives will share extremely rare imagery from the proposed Mickey Mouse Park, a concept which evolved into Disneyland; spine-tingling alternative dialogue for the Haunted Mansion penned by Disney Legend X. Atencio; the illustrated story script for “The Karnival Kid,” the 1929 short in which Mickey Mouse first speaks; and a very special memento created for Walt by legendary artist Salvador Dali.

· D23 Presents – A deeper dive into all parts of Disney from the opening of Mystic Manor in Hong Kong Disneyland to rarely seen footage of the former Disney Studio on Hyperion Avenue .

· Disney Legends and the Walt Disney Archives – Two new microsites; Disney Legends will provide a deeper look at those who’ve made significant contributions to the Disney legacy, and the Archives site will open up the doors of this venerable institution so D23 can share more of The Walt Disney Company’s expansive collections.

In addition, new departments and sections include: Weird Disney, looking at some of the more unusual and outrageous pieces of Disney’s past; Characters, profiling the most beloved characters from television, film and comics with concept art and complete biographies; The Quotable Walt Disney, a digitized version of the out-of-print book featuring some of Walt’s most enduring words; Ask a Legend, a video feature in which Disney Legends like Marty Sklar answer fans questions; First Look, which gives members a glimpse into what’s new and what’s next including Monsters University; Attraction Rewind, celebrating the beloved attractions of Disney’s past which once delighted theme park guests; and Muppetology, which opens up the Muppet-acular universe of our fuzzy friends. D23’s popular video series Armchair Archivist and Disney Geek will also return with all-new episodes.

A Haunted House Blu-ray Review By: MattInRC

 A Haunted House Blu-ray Review
By: MattInRC

The Wayans Brothers's A Haunted House Blu-ray release is one of the worst of the year, sporting a below-average video transfer, an average DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, and a single supplement that shouldn't have been a candidate in the first place. But it's the completely unoriginal film that suffers here, reducing the experience to nothing more than mind-numbing fare and making this release a definite skip.

A parody of the found-footage horror films, A Haunted House is neither funny nor redeeming as even a rental. I won't belabor the point much longer, but disappointments from 2012 such as Battleship, Cloud Atlas, and John Carter look like amazing cinematic efforts as compared to A Haunted House. At least those films attempted to pair stories with good actors before being shunned by the general public. It's becoming a sad commentary to skip anything by the once great Wayans Brothers, as their kind of shtick would have seemed funny in 1990 when In Living Color premiered.

Your best bet is to stay far away from this poorly contrived and executed train wreck of a comedy - in fact, I will be burning my copy before the Internet ink is dried on this one. Thanks Wayans Brothers for seizing 86 minutes of my life that I won't get back.

CHEECH & CHONG’S ANIMATED MOVIE Blu-Ray Review

CHEECH & CHONG’S ANIMATED MOVIE Blu-Ray Review
By: MattInRC

Here's why Cheech & Chong were funny 30 years ago, but not today.

In every way possible, Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie feels more like a rehash of old shtick than a solidified comeback. In fact, that's all it really is, matched up with some simply-drawn cartoon characters who talk about getting stoned at a drive-in movie theater. That already dates the material to those of us who can remember when three channels ruled the airwaves. I've never heard of an act using their old recordings to freshen up their classic material, but we see it here, and it doesn't seem to work..

And while it looks pretty good - thanks to a clean 1080p MPEG/AVC transfer - and sounds ok courtesy of a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, there's just nothing that's funny about it. Had we seen this 30 years ago, before Jay and Silent Bob owned that piece of stoner territory, we might have laughed a lot longer. The three audio commentaries will be insightful for longtime fans, but the new and curious would better off simply purchasing a couple of their albums and enjoying the ride. That is, if you cared at all about Cheech & Chong when they were actually good - otherwise, I would skip this release entirely.
