weekend-box-office-dreamworks-home-get-hard

It was a good weekend for both the PG-rated animated family film "Home" and the R-rated comedy "Get Hard". Both films opened strongly in first and second place, respectively, with plenty of good business left over for last week's No. 1 movie "Insurgent" and Disney's "Cinderella". Also, the indie horror film "It Follows" made a spectacular entry into the top 10.

Sacha Baron Cohen to write, direct, produce and star in Freddie Mercury biopic
The Freddie Mercury biopic has been in the works for quite a long time. At first it was supposed to move forward with Sacha Baron Cohen set to star and Tom Hooper ("Les Miserables") on board to direct, but creative differences between Queen band members and Cohen led to delays and eventually to the departure of the actor and director. Soon afterwards, Dexter Fletcher came aboard to direct with Ben Whishaw ("Skyfall") attached to star, but creative differences once again got in the way.

But all that seems to be in the past since yesterday, Queen's manager Jim Beach announced a major breakthrough at the Artist & Management Awards. He stated that Sacha Baron Cohen has been persuaded to come back and not only star, but also write, produce and direct the film. I suppose that's one way of dealing with creative differences. Here's what he had to say:
"An important breakthrough is that we have now managed to persuade Sacha Baron Cohen to write, produce and direct this movie, and he has also agreed to star."

james-bond-spectre-teaser-trailer-images

The first teaser trailer and a batch of new images for the new James Bond movie "Spectre" have been released. In this new sequel, Bond (Daniel Craig) goes up against a sinister organization called SPECTRE (SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion). The new images focus on the Mexico City shoot and they include a picture of Stephanie Sigman, the latest addition to the cast. Also, the film's unit publicist Heather Callow described the opening sequence that takes place in Mexico for Collider. Here's what she had to say:
"This is the opening chase sequence of our film. It starts with Bond and Estrella, who are walking down this Day of the Dead parade. Estrella is played by Stephanie Sigman, who is a Mexican actress. They’re kind of weaving their way through this Day of the Dead parade, they make their way into a hotel—we’ve also shot here once before in The Living Daylights.

They’re going up to Estrella’s room, Estrella thinks she might be bringing Bond to bed but instead he’s looking out the view of her window. He sees two baddies across the way having a conversation, and he stops something really bad from happening, kills one of the guys, the other guy goes running, Bond jumps out of the window and there’s a bit of a chase, he causes a building to explode and they both end up—boom—on the ground, and the foot chase starts.

The baddie’s character is called Skiara, who’s played by Alessandro Cremona, he’s an Italian actor. What we’ve been shooting over the past couple of days is Bond chasing Skiara slowly making their way through the Day of the Dead parade. As the running Skiara is on his mobile phone he’s calling for backup, cue the helicopter coming down the street. Helicopter lands, it’s full of a couple of other baddies. Skiara jumps on, Bond follows, pulls off one of the baddies, Bond jumps on the helicopter, helicopter goes up, and they start to have this fight in the helicopter.

The helicopter is piloted by a guy called Chuck Aaron, who is a stunt pilot. He’s the only person who’s insured to do 360 flips in this helicopter in the world, so we’re doing a bit of the stunts here but kind of the bigger helicopter stuff is happening 10 hours outside the city at a lower altitude.

We’ve got 1500 extras here today. They all kind of file in at 4:30 in the morning to this big convention center. They have their hair and makeup done which takes anywhere from one and a half hours to two and a half hours."
The film is directed by Sam Mendes ("Skyfall") and it also stars Christoph Waltz, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Lea Seydoux, Dave Bautista, Rory Kinnear, Andrew Scott, and Monica Bellucci.

"Spectre" opens in theaters on November 6th.

The Sure Thing 30th Anniversary Edition

Product Description: John Cusack (Say Anything…, Grosse Pointe Blank) and Daphne Zuniga (Spaceballs) take a road trip to romance in The Sure Thing, a charming and thoughtful comedy classic that only the 80s could deliver, presented here in a special 30th Anniversary edition on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory.

When college student Walter Gibson (Cusack) gets set up for a date with an incredibly gorgeous blonde (Nicollette Sheridan in her film debut), he’s ready to go to the ends of the earth (or at least across the country) to capitalize on this "sure thing. ", Paired up with tightly-wound coed Alison Bradbury (Zuniga) via the campus ride-share program, he heads west for Los Angeles. But as the obstacles begin to pile up, he and Alison begin to form an unexpected bond… and soon Gib must choose between the sure thing and the real thing.

Directed by Rob Reiner (This Is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride), The Sure Thing is exactly what the title suggests for fans of raucously funny road trips, red-hot romantic comedies and romps through 80’s angst featuring John Cusack!
