2013 Oscar Nominations Announced; Ben Affleck Snubbed for Best Director

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

oscarnoms

That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed.  Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture).  Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.

The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:

The CoF Weekend Preview: Skyfall? More Like Skyrise, amiright?

Friday, November 9th, 2012

skyfall

Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, here is a look at what’s opening this weekend. Check out our Fall & Holiday Movie Guide for the rest of the year’s releases.

SkyfallRT (93%) – Trailer

It’s just SKYFALL this weekend, so it’s going to make a lot of money, I’ll predict a $75-$80 million weekend.  It’s already made $321 million overseas, so Bond is back it seems.  It’s been four years since we were left with the bitter taste of Quantum of Solace, enter director Sam Mendes and awesome marketing (not to mention Adele’s great theme song) and we have return to grace for Bond’s 23rd adventure.

The James Bond franchise is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year— (Dr. No kicked things off in May 1963), so enjoy the weekend with some gadgets and womanizing flair that only Bond can deliver.

Click for poster.

Daniel Craig is back as James Bond 007 in Skyfall, the 23rd adventure in the longest-running film franchise of all time.  To say the people around here in the City of Films are excited for this would be an understatement; early reviews are even calling it the best Bond movie ever!

IMAX has an exclusive poster for Skyfall as the film will open one day earlier on IMAX screens than regular theaters. Movie goers will even be given this poster, lucky people.  A new trailer has also been released for Skyfall with little new footage but who cares?  It’s awesome to look at, and you can do so below.

The film also stars Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Helen McCrory, and Ralph Fiennes.

Skyfall opens internationally on October 26th, in North American IMAX theaters on November 8th, and in regular theaters on November 9th.

Adele’s Skyfall Theme Debuts This Friday [UPDATE: Or Listen To It Now]

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Since Skyfall was announced, speculation began as to whom could pull of an iconic Bond intro for what is sure to be an iconic Bond film. While somebody like Alex Clare or Lana Del Rey would have fit the mold, Adele is the perfect choice to get this franchise back on track.

Well the wait to hear the new tune is almost over! It was announced that Adele will debut the theme titled ‘Skyfall‘ on her website Friday, October 5th at 7:07pm EST. What is so special about this date you may ask? October 5th is the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No.

Happy Birthday 007!

UPDATE: Here it is, and it’s awesome!  Best theme in years?  It’s up for debate.  Adele co-wrote the song with her Rolling in the Deep producer/collaborator Paul Epworth.

SKYFALL News: Runtime, Daniel Craig for Two More Films, and a Behind-the-Scenes Video

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Skyfall-International

Well it seems Bond is back in a big way; not only is the longest running franchise celebrating 50 years but the latest installment, Skyfall, is set to go with a runtime of 145 minutes.  That would be a bit longer than Casino Royal and a hefty 40 minutes longer than Quantum of Solace.

There is also news that Daniel Craig will return for the next two James Bond films which leaves him slightly behind Sean Connery (6) and Roger Moore (7).  Sony Pictures will return to co-finance Bond 24 and 25, so let’s hope there isn’t another off again on again mess.

Skyfall also stars Javier Bardem, Judi Dench, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe and Ola Rapace.  The movie opens October 26th in the UK and November 9th in North America.

Here is a nice behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the opening of Skyfall with commentary from Mendes, Craig and more.

wreck-itWreck-It RalphNovember 2
Synopsis: The bad-guy character in a classic game who longs to be a hero brings trouble to his entire arcade after sneaking into a new first-person shooter game and unleashing a deadly enemy.
Director: Rich Moore
Stars: John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch, Sarah SilvermanAnalysis: Why hasn’t this idea been done already? It has so much potential with the inside jokes and nostalgia that we all want to see, or it won’t not do it enough so it needs a sequel. Let’s just hope they reference Iron Tank, best game ever.
