Movie Harkens To '07 Skorean Abductions By Taliban

Woody Allen has revealed the title of his next movie: "Magic in the Moonlight." The prolific director isn't saying yet what the film is about. But it is set in the South of France and, judging by images released from the production, appears to be set sometime in the 1930s. (The title may be a reference to Dean Martin's romantic ballad "Magic Is the Moonlight.") PHOTOS: Billion-dollar movie club Allen's latest film, "Blue Jasmine," is still in theaters and has made has made a robust $31.7 million domestically and generated critical praise for lead actress Cate Blanchett . The French location of "Magic in the Moonlight" returns Allen to the site of his late-career hit, 2011's "Midnight in Paris," which grossed $56.8 million domestically. "Magic in the Moonlight" is expected to be released in 2014, though it does not yet have a U.S. distributor. ALSO: <br>Source: here.,0,5545976.story

The Movie Moments interface. (Click to enlarge.) Microsoft didn't show much of the Movie Moments interface in its blog post, but it doesn't seem to be made for heavy-duty editing. The "simple app"as Microsoft calls itwill be able to trim videos, add music, and slap captions on your videos, as shown in the example below. In short, the app seems like an even more "streamlined" (perhaps too much so?)version of the Windows Movie Maker software that first appeared in Windows XP. Fresh Paint, Photos, and Camera Three other cornerstones of Microsoft's creative endeavors are also receiving slight makeovers. Like Movie Maker, Microsoft's utterly superb Fresh Paint app will be available in the Windows Store, rather than being baked in to the operating system itself. <br>Source:

Among the films many accomplishments (biting social satire, Wesley Snipess brilliantly insane villain turn, an intentionally funny Sylvester Stallone performance) , it also contained one of the all-time great token girl sidekick characters, played with uncommon humor and gusto by some unknown named Sandra Bullock . It is fitting that last week celebrated the 20th anniversary of the film that first introduced most of us to Mrs. Bullock, as last week capped an extraordinary run that arguably cements Sandra Bullock as the biggest female movie star on the planet. Obviously Sandra Bullock didnt become box office until eight months later when she co-starred in one of the best action films of the last thirty years, Jan De Bonts Speed. She again took a token girl sidekick/love interest role and charmed the film away from Keenu Reeves and Dennis Hopper in what was a true star is born moment. She was the big reason, along with pretty much everything else that was perfect in said bomb-on-the-bus thriller, why the film pushed past the no girls allowed action film ceiling of around $80m at the time and powered Speed to $121m domestic off of a $14m debut. <br>Source:

Will Dakota Johnson Drop Out of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Reggie Bush Kim Kardashian Movie?

Ozzie Smith was a pretty okay hitter, but is considered to be the greatest defensive shortstop of all time, which is why Ozzie Smith is in the Baseball Hall of Fame. We are told by Bob Costas' voiceover (watching this scene again, you can actually hear the contempt in Costas' delivery; I assume he used the same contempt when he endorsed his check from 20th Century Fox) that Ozzie Smith has been on a power surge as of late which means that we, as the audience, should be nervous because Ozzie Smith just might hit another home run. This is ludicrous. Ozzie Smith hit a grand total of 28 home runs. Not in any one particular season, mind you, but from Smith's lifetime total over 19 years in the Major Leagues. <br>Source:

Don't tell me I'd miss major plot points while scrolling on my iPad it's a movie about robots vs. monsters. I can follow Kim Kardashian shoe club along just fine." Predictably, Walk's blog post drew a barrage of criticism from movie traditionalists making familiar arguments: that cell-phone usage is rude to other moviegoers, that many go to movie theaters to cut themselves off from the world for two hours, that anyone who can't disengage from their mobile device for two hours is either an addict or someone with attention deficit disorder. Critics with a broader perspective found Walk's idea sadly reflective of a movie culture where no one pays much attention to films webblog because movies made now don't do enough to engage viewers. Walk addressed several of these points in a follow-up post , suggesting that his second-screen-experience theater wouldn't be for every movie (presumably, Oscar-hopeful movies that require thought and engagement would be exempt), and that his idea actually caters to moviegoers who don't want disruptive mobile users to sit among them by removing them all to a separate theater. Walk says he hopes to test the idea soon in San Francisco. Which Movies Have the Best Soundtracks? Walk's idea echoes a similar idea floated last year by two major theater chains at CinemaCon, the annual spring convention for theater owners in Las Vegas . <br>Source:

"I think there could be apostasy that is more sacred than martyrdom," said Lee, a Christian convert who explored Shamanism in some of his past movies. He was one of South Korea's most commercially and critically successful directors in the 1970s and '80s, making melodramas and romances with social critique while South Korea was going through military dictatorships that censored movies. "God's Eye View" is his first movie after an 18-year absence, during which he taught filmmaking at a university. Upon his return, he said he no longer saw movies as a means to gain fame and money, but to achieve loftier goals, and said he hopes the film will help break prejudice about Christianity in South Korea. "Rather than to believe it, I want people to understand Christianity," through the movie, he said denying his movie itself is trying to proselytize. The drama has been met by hundreds of invectives online even though it hasn't been released; the film is still seeking a distributor. <br>Source:

Read: Charlie Hunnam Drops out of Fifty Shades of Grey Movie But back in September after accepting the role, Hunnam, 33,suggested that he and Johnson, 24, who was cast as Anastasia Steele ,were the perfect match for the adaptation of the steamy book, especially in the eyes of director Sam Taylor-Johnson. We both suggested I do a reading with Dakota, who was[Taylor-Johnson's] favorite, Hunnam told reporters last month .As soon as we got in the room, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it. Theres just a tangible chemistry between us. It felt exciting and fun and weird and compelling. So, if it was the tangible chemistry between Johnson and Hunnam that locked theactors into dothe movie, does Hunnams departure mean Johnsons characterwill be recast as well? Johnspns rep did not immediately respond to request for comment. Tell us what you think below. <br>Source:
