Stunning ‘Foxcatcher’ Leaves Eerie Mark on Telluride Film Festival

Filed under Foxcatcher


Steve Carell’s performance in ‘Foxcatcher’ is being tipped as a possible Oscar winner.

Bennett Miller’s intense drama Foxcatcher – which previously scored five-star review at the Cannes Film Festival – has stunned audiences at the Telluride Film Festival. The movie is tipped for major awards and the general consensus in Colorado was that Steve Carell’s stunning performance is the best of the year, so far.

“A film to be considered alongside David Fincher’s The Social Network and Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master as a swirling, smoke-black parable of modern America,” said Robbie Collin of the Daily Telegraph.

“Above everything else, it is a piercing insight into toxic mentor-ism, into competitive men and their terrible emotional need to find a father-figure to hate and to disappoint,” said Peter Bradshaw of the Guardian.

“Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum give superb performances in Bennett Miller’s powerfully disturbing true-crime saga,” said Justin Chang of Variety.

“The director really hits his stride with a stunning portrayal of psychopathy and moral decadence in the unlikely environment of Olympic wrestling,” said Donald Clarke of the Irish Times.

Carrell and his co-star Channing Tatum are beginning to start the publicity jaunt for awards’ season and both dined with press at a Sony Classics dinner over the weekend.

A movie that Foxcatcher may encounter at the Globes and Oscars is Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, which also bowled over audience at Telluride. It features a much-hyped lead performance from Michael Keaton and Fox Searchlight appear keen to push the movie into a healthy battle with Miller’s drama. According to Wrap, the studio held a press confab at the same time as Foxcatcher’s over the weekend.

Magic Mike XXL Begins Filming with Tweet from Steven Soderbergh

Filed under Magic Mike 2


Sorry for posting late.

Channing Tatum and company are ready to bare all once again in Magic Mike XXL, which began filming this weekend.

Steven Soderbergh, who directed the original, Tweeted a photo of the sequel’s clapperboard on Sunday, and wrote, “It’s ON!”

The sequel, which will dance into theaters next July, is reportedly a road-trip film that leads to a stripper convention – “which really exists! It’s a real-live thing,” costar Matt Bomer told Ellen DeGeneres this summer.

“Only the best of the best make it. It’s a strip-off to the death,” Bomer said. “It is a stripper convention – I can imagine if you lock those doors, things can get a little rowdy.”

“We want there to be a s— ton of fun,” Tatum himself told MTV recently. “A s— ton of ridiculous stuff that you would never see in a movie, on the face of the earth, ever again.”

It was originally believed that Soderbergh wouldn’t be back for the sequel. But he is involved, just not as director. Instead, he’s serving as director of photography, camera operator and film editor.

“I want to be there, but I don’t want to be the director,” he told GQ this summer. “I want to be a part of it. I want to be in the band, but I just don’t want to be the frontman this time.”

Gregory Jacobs, who served as Soderbergh’s first assistant director on several productions, including the first Magic Mike, will direct the new movie.

‘Magic Mike’ Sequel Moved Up To Wednesday Before Fourth Of July

Filed under Magic Mike 2


UPDATED, 3:15 PM: Warner Bros said today it will give moviegoers two extra days to ogle Magic Mike 2 next Independence Day weekend. The sequel has been moved from July 3 to July 1. No Roman candle jokes, please.

PREVIOUSLY: Warner Bros has set Magic Mike 2 for July 3, 2015. The sequel to the 2012 film directed by Steven Soderbergh that was informed by Channing Tatum‘s early days as a male stripper. This is the latest extension of the pic that Soderbergh and Tatum hatched and financed themselves. It was a risk that turned into a major score when the original movie starring Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and other made $113.7M at the domestic box office — one of Soderbergh’s most lucrative movies ever — and has since spawned a Broadway musical now in the works.

‘G.I. Joe’ 3 Movie Release Date And Spoilers, Channing Tatum Character Returning To Life; More Characters To Be Introduced?

Filed under G.I. Joe 3


“G.I. Joe” 3 movie release date has been officially set for 2016!

Following the success of the “G.I. Joe” franchise, the call for superhero movies grows by the minute. While the characters in G.I. Joe is your average hero unlike the super powerful mutants or gifted humans, fans continue to call out for the next installment.

Real American heroes G.I. Joe are set to another bout with the enemies of darkness personified by Cobra Commander and his allies in the upcoming “G.I. Joe 3″. Writing is underway, shared by director Jon M. Chu. While nothing has been set on stone, the director reveals what is planned for the next adventure.

In an interview with Collider.com, Jon enlightens fans about the plans for the upcoming installment.

“G.I. Joe” 3 is open to including additional characters, as much as the second sequel. However, Jon confirms the difficulty with multiple characters in the movie. As much as it’s fun for both crew and audiences, the complexity is there-but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen. In his interview with MTV, he shares that there are indeed characters returning, and newcomers to look out for.

As the director does confirm the return of headliners, Bruce Willis and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, he teases the possible coming back of Channing Tatum’s character, Duke.

Not an impossible move especially in the G.I. Joe franchise, the revival of Duke is highly conceivable-taking into account the apparent death of Storm Shadow in the first film. In an interview with MTV, Jon is quoted saying:

“You new know, Storm Shadow died in the first one and came back in the second one, and then other characters have died and never come back. The G.I. Joe world, the best thing about it is you never know who’s coming back and who’s not.”
