ARGO Movie Review. Does The Film Deserve An Oscar?

ARGO Movie Review  By: MattInRC Make sure to follow MattInRC on Twitter for all his reviews. Ben Affleck's Argo is an engrossing and smart historical thriller that while not perfect has much to celebrate. Most films based on true stories inevitably suffer from two issues: how much has been embellished, and will audiences embrace a film in which they already know the ending. These were the questions surrounding the historical drama/thriller Argo before its release; and while we all know how things will end, we find ourselves on the edge of our seat, at once cheering for the safe return of Americans that we already know did come home, and booing those responsible for making this world such a dangerous place afterwards. Our story isn't about character redemption, finding one's soul after a two-hour dramatic exposition, or some other feel-good plot designed to win Oscars: it's about CIA agent Tony Mendez ( Ben Affleck , Dogma) following through on his

Win Tickets to An Advance Screening For ARGO In Sacramento

 Win your tickets to see an advance screening for ARGO ! The screening is on Monday, October 8 at 7:00PM in Sacramento. Based on real events, the dramatic thriller “ ARGO ” chronicles the life-or-death covert operation to rescue six Americans, which unfolded behind the scenes of the Iran hostage crisis—the truth of which was unknown by the public for decades. The film stars Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin and John Goodman . On November 4, 1979, as the Iranian revolution reaches its boiling point, militants storm the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. But, in the midst of the chaos, six Americans manage to slip away and find refuge in the home of Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Knowing it is only a matter of time before the six are found out and likely killed, a CIA “exfiltration” specialist named Tony Mendez comes up with a risky plan to get them safely out of the country. A plan so incredible, it could only happen in the movies.  

Emma Stone Rides A Little White Corvette

In a deal worth $1 million upfront, GK Films has acquired Little White Corvette , the Michael Diliberti script that has  Emma Stone  attached to star. Stone, who most recently completed The Amazing Spider-Man and who’s got some Oscar buzz for her performance in The Help , had an open slot that had several studios buzzing. Shooting on this one will begin in late summer and Scott Aversano will produce with GK’s Graham King and Tim Headington. Diliberti wrote the story with David Branson Smith. Stone and Diliberti will be exec producers. Stone had been interested in the script since last summer. It’s a two-hander about a nerdy guy and his wild older sister who travel to Miami to try and sell a million-dollar stash of ’70s cocaine they found in the trunk of their late father’s car. It’s the third recent sale for Diliberti, who sold the pitch The Big Sayonara to Fox as a potential directing vehicle for John Requa and Glenn Ficarra, and an untitled pitch that Warner Bros bought for To

Tomb Raider Film To Be Complete Reboot

Tomb Raider producer Graham King has revealed that he took inspiration from Rise of the Planet of the Apes for the Lara Croft franchise reboot. King told Digital Spy that he has received a script from Iron Man screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby. "We're going through [the script] creatively, bringing in directors to talk to and then I get that horrible job of sitting with 25-30 young girls that want to play Lara Croft," he said. Asked about his approach to the new Lara Croft movie, King said: "For me it's re-inventing the wheel a bit, it's a reboot. We're going back before she was Lara Croft, so it's a much more emotional character piece. She's in search of her parents. "One of my favorite movies of this year was Rise of the Planet of the Apes and the way they rebooted that franchise. I thought it was fantastic and took a lot away from that for Tomb Raider."

Trailer For The Rum Diary Starring Johnny Depp

It took Johnny Depp to finally rescue his late lamented pal Hunter S Thompson’s The Rum Diary from development hell, where it lingered for nearly a decade before the actor was finally able to get it made via his Infinitum Nihil company. Now the trailer for the movie has arrived online and can be watched - no, experienced - below. Rum Diary finds Depp once more playing a Thompson surrogate, though this time one step removed. He’s Paul Kemp, a booze-guzzling journalist who is sent by his editor ( Richard Jenkins , boasting one of the funniest wigs to grace the screen in ages) to Puerto Rico on assignment. In between bouts of narcotic- and alcohol-influenced madness, he stumbles on a real story, setting up a collision with a corrupt businessman ( Aaron Eckhart ) whose sexy young fiancée ( Amber Heard ) has taken a real liking to Paul.

Lara Croft Film Is On The Way

Lara Croft is back in action. The heroine of one of the biggest video games from the 1990s is once again getting the movie treatment, this time from heavyweight producer Graham King and his GK Films. GK Films has acquired the feature film rights to Tomb Raider and will reboot the action-adventure franchise aiming for a 2013 release for the first film. The new movie will be produced by King and Tim Headington. Angelina Jolie starred in the two previous big-screen adaptations made by Paramount, and with King having produced The Tourist , the Jolie-Johnny Depp thriller, some tongues were wagging about the potential for a new Jolie Raider movie. But sources say GK Films, which has not hired a writer yet, may be looking to do a Lara Croft origin story rather continue her adventures. According to GK Films, the goal is to "create daring new adventures for the young and dynamic Lara Croft." The game was created in 1996 by Eidos, now part of entertainment group Square En

Michael Jackson's Thriller Movie

Michael Jackson's Thriller To Become A Film Michael Jackson , who reportedly earned $275 million posthumously over the past year for his estate, isn't slowing down anytime soon.  GK Films is in active negotiations to acquire a package for a film that is being fashioned around his groundbreaking hit song Thriller . The film, which has been quietly shopped over the past several weeks by Real Effects Entertainment , has Kenny Ortega attached to direct, and The Hangover scribe Jeremy Garelick to write the screenplay. While GK is in the driver's seat, I'm told that Fox 2000, Mandate/Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are all in the mix on what will shape up as a pricey rights deal, but which will turn out to be a film budgeted at under $50 million. Plot is being kept under wraps but I understand it has to do with the song's folklore, involving Vincent Price and the town he grew up in. All of this deal making is subject to a deal being completed with Jackson's e

Sacha Baron Cohen To Portray Mercury In Upcoming Film

Sacha Baron Cohen To Play A Queen Are you ready for Borat to play a queen?  Sacha Baron Cohen has closed a deal to play Queen front man Freddie Mercury in a film that’s being scripted by Peter Morgan for a 2011 production start. The untitled film will be financed by GK Films partners Graham King and Tim Headington, who'll produce in partnership with Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal’s Tribeca Productions, and Queen Films. Morgan is already working on a script focused on the band’s formative years, leading up to Queen’s appearance at Live Aid in 1985. Queen’s performance is considered one of the rock's all-time great live concert appearances. A rights package has been set that includes the band’s tunes, including Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, We Are the Champions , Another One Bites The Dust and You’re My Best Friend. It is unclear whether Baron Cohen will sing—I’m told he can sing—or whether Mercury’s vocals will be used. Nobody sang like Mercury, so trying to rep
