NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metallica already planned to go big with its new 3D film. IMAX is helping make the debut for "Metallica Through The Never" giant-sized. The film that mixes concert footage with a dramatic narrative and CGI will open Sept. 27, becoming the first movie to debut on IMAX's chain of super-sized screens. The film will open wide a week later. "To be at the forefront in this situation where IMAX has never done this is very exciting," Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said. "It's also a bit of a confidence booster. Being in the movie-making business is not necessarily our forte and it's been a very interesting three years. We've le... more

NEW YORK - Since directing "Garden State," Zach Braff has continually prepared music in an iTunes playlist titled, "For Next Movie." Nine years and hundreds of saved songs later, Braff hopes he's finally making his follow-up to "Garden State" - if his fans can help. On Wednesday, in the wake of the enormously successful "Veronica Mars" Kickstarter campaign, the "Scrubs" star launched a crowd-funding campaign to make his next movie. For the next 30 days, he'll try to raise $2 million on Kickstarter for "Wish I Was Here," a film he co-wrote with his brother Adam. Braff's movie is the most notable film project since Rob Thomas sent shock wa... more

Movie Review: Pain & Gain

pain and gain flag

There's a siege mentality about Michael Bay's movies, as though viewers are the enemy holed up in a bunker and he's the guy ordering heavy-metal music around-the-clock to wear down our morale and force us to surrender. Bay's true-crime caper "Pain & Gain" lacks the visual-effects mayhem and sci-fi cacophony of his "Transformers" blockbusters, yet the movie uses all the shock and awe and noise and bluster the director has in his utterly unsubtle arsenal. Unlike Bay's usual action nonsense, there's a story, screenplay, characters and wry mix of suspense and pitiable comedy to be had in the tale of three Florida bodybuilders who blunder thr... more

A Dramatic Turn For Will Forte, Sans Celery

NEW YORK - Putting celery in one's butt is not the traditional pathway to coveted dramatic roles and illustrious international film festivals. But three years after the "Saturday Night Live" spinoff "MacGruber" - and that infamous moment of vegetable prop comedy - Will Forte finds himself starring in an Irish drama playing at the Tribeca Film Festival ("Run & Jump") ahead of his starring role in Alexander Payne's "Nebraska," an entry to this year's Cannes Film Festival. "I have no idea how I found myself in this position," says still bewildered Forte. Though known for ridiculously over-the-top characters on "SNL" (a hermit falcon-owner,... more

Hollywood Yielding to China's Growing Film Clout

Coming soon to a theater near you: China's Communist Party. From demanding changes in plot lines that denigrate the Chinese leadership, to dampening lurid depictions of sex and violence, Beijing is having increasing success in pressuring Hollywood into deleting movie content Beijing finds objectionable. It's even getting American studios to sanction alternative versions of films specially tailored for Chinese audiences, like "Iron Man 3," which debuts in theaters around the world later this week. The Chinese version features local heartthrob Fan Bingbing - absent from the version showing abroad - and lengthy clips of Chinese scenery that... more
