Although we’re only just edging towards the end of the first month of 2017, the awards show season is already in full swing. So if you didn’t get your fix of glam gowns at the Golden Globes, you’re going to have plenty more chances, starting with Wednesday night’s People’s Choice Awards. The ceremony’s red carpet was replete with more daring, risk-taking dresses than you’re used to seeing, as well as an array of bright colors and bold metallics. But in that whirlwind of high fashion, there’s a few standout gowns you may have missed. »

From Sony to Snapchat: When Old Hollywood Meets New Media

18 January 2017 10:02 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What ex-Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton’s transition to Snapchat could mean for movies and new media.

Snap Inc., the technology and social media company whose products include Snapchat and Spectacles, is welcoming a Hollywood executive into its ranks. Last week, Michael Lynton announced that he would be stepping down from his position as CEO of Sony Entertainment, the film, television and music conglomerate, for a new post as board chairman for Snap Inc. Lynton is the last of the old Sony guard to depart since the infamous Sony hack which produced an email leak scandal that led to the ousting of former studio chief Amy Pascal. (Pascal is now a producer on Spider-Man: Homecoming and Barbie.)

Rumors abound regarding what will happen next at Sony Pictures, whose string of major flops including Passengers and Ghostbusters led to the studio’s 5th-place finish in 2016 studio market share, just a notch above Paramount Pictures. Lynton »

After Michael Lynton’s Exit, Is Sony in for a Major Overhaul?

17 January 2017 1:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Three years ago, Sony Corp. CEO Kazuo Hirai made it clear that the need for improved results at Sony Pictures Entertainment was urgent. At the time, he vowed to become a more prominent presence at the studio’s Culver City lot and to exert his authority to ensure a drastic makeover of the conglomerate’s struggling motion picture studio.

That was in February 2014, when the Japanese corporate leader signaled he would no longer tolerate substandard performance at his American entertainment operation, which, under the watch of studio chief executive Michael Lynton, had faced a revolt, with an activist investor calling for Lynton’s head.

In the 35 months since, Sony has not been able to extricate itself from financial woes, management turmoil, and a string of movie flops.

Last week, Hirai was back in the news, this time with an even more resolute, pointed agenda: He was assuming a new »

Flickering Myth’s most anticipated movies of 2017

12 January 2017 7:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Flickering Myth get excited for the year ahead of us…

After a fairly below-average year at the cinema last year, we here at Flickering Myth are feeling rather hopeful for 2017. There are some fantastic films lined up; including a load of comic book movies, the return of Christopher Nolan and King Kong, a new Alien film and a War for the Planet of the Apes. There’s even a new Blade Runner film! Wait… King Kong, Alien, Planet of the Apes, Blade Runner… are we sure this isn’t 1987?..

Twenty-one of our writers voted for a whopping forty-seven movies, with a very tight final top ten. Last year Captain America: Civil War topped our most anticipated movies beating out Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Deadpool and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It’s probably fair to say that at least three of those movies delivered, but we’ll let you decide which ones. »

Newswire: Anna Kendrick declares war on Christmas with female Santa Claus movie

11 January 2017 5:19 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Tensions between idiot misogynists and normal people were bad in the lead-up to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters movie, with idiot misogynists going after Leslie Jones, whining on reddit, and freaking out over the sort of hospital visit that apparently only Chris Pratt can do, but a new Anna Kendrick project just might trigger idiot misogynists even worse than Ghostbusters did. According to Variety, Kendrick is in talks to star in an untitled Disney movie from Miss Congeniality writer Marc Lawrence about Santa Claus’ daughter taking over for him when he retires. In other words, a girl is going to replace Santa Claus.

Obviously, this is another instance of PC-culture running amok, since Santa Claus was perfectly good as he was and he didn’t need to have his legacy tarnished with a pointless stunt like this. This is going to ruin a lot of people’s childhoods, so we’ve »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Leads The Razzie Nominations Shortlist

7 January 2017 12:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we head into the thick of awards season, it’s time to celebrate all the incredible films that 2016 brought us. La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Deadpool and Arrival will no doubt find themselves on the lips of many moviegoers over the next few weeks, while talent like Amy Adams, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Adam Driver and Denzel Washington, among others, will also start picking up some serious buzz.

But, as the best of the best start to take up most of the spotlight, there’s another another awards ceremony gearing up to get underway, and it’ll be celebrating very different types of movies and actors/actresses. We are, of course, referring to the Razzie Awards, which shine a light on the worst that the year had to offer.

Dear Academy: Please Keep These Oscar Contenders in Mind

5 January 2017 3:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nomination ballots for the 89th annual Oscars have been mailed, or beamed out, to the nearly 7,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Voting is scheduled to run Thursday through Friday, Jan. 13, with nominations to be announced on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

The group-think of awards season can be overwhelming and sometimes it can be all too easy to just fall in line. But we’d like to offer a few humble, off-the-beaten-path suggestions for voters to keep in mind as they sit down to make their decisions this week and next. Spare a thought for these contenders?

Best Costume and Production Design

Kubo and the Two Strings

It’s time for the Academy’s craft branches to take below-the-line work on animated films seriously. Laika has been deserving in both of these categories virtually every step of the way, and “Kubo and the Two Strings” is the glorious »

Leslie Jones Wants to Be the Loud Sidekick in Deadpool 2

2 January 2017 10:40 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2016 is officially over, and we can say without question that Deadpool was one of the most successful movies of the year. It may not have made the most money, but an R-rated movie making $783 million dollars from a budget of just $58 million is incredibly impressive. Now, as things are ramping up for Deadpool 2, more and more actors are throwing their hats in the ring to be in what will surely be a very successful sequel. Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones has doubled down on recent comments she made, declaring she really wants to be in Deadpool 2.

The SNL cast member made an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers recently and she was asked about her desire to be in Deadpool 2. In December, leslie Jones tweeted at Ryan Reynolds directly, saying that she could be his sidekick in the Deadpool sequel and that her superpower would be her loudness. »

Hollywood’s Winners and Losers 2016: Why Movie Stars Flailed Next to Strong Women, African Americans, and Animated Heroes

2 January 2017 10:03 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As a year, 2016 is an auld acquaintance that we’d rather be forgot. However, as another familiar trope reminds us, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Here’s my assessment of the year Hollywood coped with change as the industry’s economic underpinnings continued to buckle and sway.

And for the Tl;Dr among us: Those who are able to innovate and adapt thrive. Others face decline.

Winners

Disney is the studio winner by a mile not only in domestic market share ($2.7 billion, 25.3 percent), but its stable of global moneymakers took the studio to more than $7 billion worldwide. Four of the five most profitable movies of the year came from Disney: “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (Lucasfilm), “Captain America: Winter Soldier” (Marvel), “Zootopia” (Disney Animation), and “The Jungle Book” (Disney). And blockbusters “Finding Dory” (Pixar), “Moana” (Disney Animation), and “Doctor Strange” (Marvel) weren’t far behind. »
