[{"id":10820,"title":"Abominable","content":"When teenage Yi (CHLOE BENNET, Marvel\u2019s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series) stumbles upon a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building, she and her friends, Jin (TENZING NORGAY TRAINOR, TV\u2019s Liv and Maddie), and his cousin, Peng (ALBERT TSAI, TV\u2019s Fresh Off the Boat), name him \u201cEverest\u201d and embark on an unforgettable quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFor Abominable writer\/director Jill Culton, the road to DreamWorks Animation has been a long and winding one. After she graduated from CalArts, she cut her teeth as an animator and storyboard artist at Pixar, where she collaborated on Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and A Bug\u2019s Life before helping to craft the story for Monster\u2019s, Inc. As well, she spent several years at Sony Animation, where she directed their first animated-feature film, Open Season. Culton had met with DreamWorks over the years to discuss various projects, but it was not until she was swept away at an early screening of How to Train Your Dragon that everything clicked into place and she decided to join the studio.\r\n\r\nOriental DreamWorks, the company that later became Pearl Studio, and DreamWorks Animation pitched Culton the idea for a \u201cYeti movie,\u201d and she took the seed of that idea back to her home in a small town nestled in the woods of Marin County in Northern California. There, surrounded by majestic redwoods, she began to imagine an epic tale of a young woman who finds herself at an unimaginable crossroads.\r\n\r\nThe massive contrast in size between the Yeti, Everest, and Yi was inspired by a very specific memory from Culton\u2019s childhood. \u201cWhen I was five or six, my neighbors had this giant London Great Dane that had to be almost 200 pounds,\u201d she says. \u201cI was always scared but intrigued; he outweighed me by more than double. One day, my friend Nancy and I were running around the house, and he started chasing us. I jumped off the stairs to avoid him, and I fell. This giant dog pinned me to the ground and was breathing in my face, staring into me; I was terrified but amazed at the same time. Since then, I\u2019ve only had big dogs. They\u2019re just this huge, fascinating presence in my world.\u201d\r\n\r\nIn bringing Abominable to life, Culton would find kindred spirits in producer Suzanne Buirgy, DreamWorks Animation\u2019s longtime champion of the production, and Peilin Chou, chief creative officer of Pearl Studio and our story\u2019s Yi writ large. Making history as the first trio of female filmmakers to bring a big-studio animated feature to the big screen, the collaborators did and do not take that historic designation lightly.\r\n\r\nWhen it comes to character creation and design, Culton takes her craft with the utmost seriousness. This work ethic and passion goes back to her first feature, Toy Story, when she was in her early 20s. \u201cA bunch of us from CalArts moved up to Northern California,\u201d Culton says. \u201cThis was the first computer-animated film, and Pixar wanted 12 animators to start on the same day; I was one of those. We had to learn UNIX, and every day, we\u2019d come in and software would be either broken or enhanced. It was so hard every day, and none of us knew at the time that CG was the way that the world was going.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe filmmaker\u2019s passion for inventive storytelling extended to the creation of one of that studio\u2019s most beloved characters, Jessie, from Toy Story 2. All her hard work proved worth it, not just on a creative level, but a humanitarian one. \u201cI\u2019ll never forget that after the film came out, letters started coming to the studio and they were posted on the wall,\u201d she continues. \u201cThey were, \u2018My kid fought cancer because he thought he was Buzz Lightyear and could go to infinity and beyond.\u2019 I realized the power of movies then. We give our lives to these things, and I knew I didn\u2019t want to ever be on a movie that was just sheer entertainment. They have to mean something.\u201d\r\n\r\nProducer Suzanne Buirgy acknowledges that none of this would have been possible without proprietary DreamWorks animation technology: \u201cThe software we\u2019ve secured is incredible,\u201d Buirgy says. \u201cThis combination of Premo, which is an amazing animation software, and MoonRay, a near-real-time rendering one, created wondrous animation renders that look incredible. It\u2019s stunning that we are able to have representative lighting in them, which allowed us to look at scenes early on versus waiting for lighting later.\u201d\r\n\r\nCo-director Todd Wilderman was wowed by just how quickly the software allowed the team to understand what final sequences would look like. \u201cUsing Premo, head of character animation John Hill and his team moved so fast with the animation,\u201d Wilderman says. \u201cThere are a lot of long shots and complex acting in this film. Back in the day, you didn\u2019t have full fur when you were animating. You almost had something slick that looked like the Michelin Man. To experience Everest actually having full fur that made him look exactly the way he does in the movie\u2026when we were just blocking out animation and approving performance? It was a dream. It allowed us to see the scene for what it was, make decisions quickly and approve animation much faster\u2014and know it wasn\u2019t a leap of faith. What we were seeing was what was going to get rendered and lit. Suddenly, he is in full costume. Same with the kids; they had full-on hair and weren\u2019t just geometric shapes.\u201d\r\n\r\nIt was crucial to the production that the film accurately highlight Chinese landscapes and culture, from the glistening buildings of the big city to the countryside, with beauty, artistry and precision. That process was divided equally between DreamWorks Animation in America and Pearl Studio in China. Production designer Max Boas would work with the team at Pearl Studio on specific design elements\u2014like Yi\u2019s apartment and bedroom\u2014and together, the teams would go to painstaking lengths to make it as realistic as possible. Boas and his team in Glendale, California, sought out the input and feedback from the team at Pearl throughout the course of production. This unique East\/West creative collaboration between the two partner studios brought a vibrant China to life through animation as it has never been captured before on the big screen.","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/09\/abobinable-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/09\/abobinable-1024x576.jpg","post_excerpt":"DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio present Abominable, starring Chloe Bennet, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Albert Tsai, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, Tsai Chin, Michelle Wong.

At the start of 2007, Destiny (Constance Wu) is a young woman struggling to make ends meet, to provide for herself and her grandma. But it\u2019s not easy: the managers, DJs, and bartenders expect a cut\u2013 one way or another \u2013 leaving Destiny with a meager payday after a long night of stripping.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nJennifer Lopez, who portrays Ramona and serves as a producer on the film, says she was drawn to the fact that HUSTLERS is about \u201cgreed, power, and the American Dream and what a certain group of women, who work in a field where they are discounted, will do to achieve it. It\u2019s an amorality story about the slippery slope of the hustle. These women did not invent the game; they just tried to level the playing field. It\u2019s about right, wrong, and how far you\u2019ll go to hustle for your dreams.\u201d\r\n\r\nAccording to producer Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, the filmmakers sought an inclusive cast, which \u201clends itself authentically to the world, while also being a lot of fun.\u201d All the actors, like their on-screen counterparts, bonded instantly, and understood but didn\u2019t judge their characters. \u201cThey really inhabited them,\u201d Goldsmith-Thomas continues. \u201cThey understood who these women were and what it meant to be an exotic dancer. HUSTLERS is a celebration of sisterhood, and what a tight-knit family of women have to do for a fighting chance.\u201d\r\n\r\nConstance Wu was especially intrigued with the relationship between her character, Destiny, and Jennifer Lopez\u2019s Ramona, and likens it to a pairing in one of her favorite novels. \u201cWhat Ramona is for Destiny reminds me of this quote from Patricia Highsmith\u2019s The Talented Mr. Ripley: \u2018The thing with Dickie... it's like the sun shines on you, and it's glorious. And then he forgets you and it's very, very cold...When you have his attention, you feel like you're the only person in the world, that's why everybody loves him so much.\u2019 Destiny's dream come true is for Ramona to love her.\u201d Wu did extensive research for the role, the most important of which, she notes, was \u201cbecoming close with different women in the profession and getting to know them as people.\u201d\r\n\r\nLike Wu, Lopez got to know several dancers and visited strip clubs, where she observed their routines. \u201cI then met with them backstage and listened to what it was like to have a career as a dancer,\u201d Lopez recalls. \u201cI soaked up the atmosphere and wanted to learn how to do things authentically, including pole dancing. I think it would surprise people \u2013 although it shouldn\u2019t \u2013 that most of these women are just trying to get by. Their struggles are 100 percent relatable. They want to take care of themselves and their families, and we wanted to make sure we brought that all to life.\u201d\r\n\r\nTrace Lysette portrays the dancer, Tracey. Lysette, who became one of the first trans actors to appear on a prime-time television series in a speaking role, with her work on Transparent, actually made a living at a strip club. \u201cI danced at [the popular New York strip club] Scores for over eight years,\u201d she explains. \u201cI remember when the money was flowing \u2013 and when it stopped coming after the 2008 financial crisis.\u201d\r\n\r\nThere were many challenges awaiting the actors who portray the exotic dancers, but certainly learning their way around a strip club pole was at the top of the list. \u201cMy muscles have never been so sore as when I trained on that pole,\u201d Wu succinctly describes her experiences while training to learn the precise and specific moves. Even Lopez, a longtime skilled dancer who works out every day, says it was one of the most difficult things she\u2019s ever done. \u201cI trained for almost six months in preparation for this film,\u201d she relates. \u201cI had a portable strip pole in every city I visited, so I never missed a session. I was using a group of muscles I hadn\u2019t ever tested before, so I walked away with fresh bruises after every session. My shoulders and back are still recovering!\u201d\r\n\r\nWu, Lopez and all the actors required to learn pole dancing, credit pole choreographer Johanna Sapakie with making it all possible for them. \u201cJohanna is really talented,\u201d says Lopez, \u201cand we couldn\u2019t have done it without her expert guidance.\u201d A former Cirque de Soleil performer and acrobatic dancer, Sapakie says it was important that each actor be able to feel what it\u2019s like to be dancing on a pole. \u201cIt\u2019s their environment, and part of their characters\u2019 development,\u201d she says.\r\n\r\nResearch was a key tool in shaping Muskey\u2019s designs. \u201cI looked at the social media accounts of some strippers, and was so impressed,\u201d veteran production designer Jane Musky (Maid in Manhattan) recalls. \u201cThere were images of their knees bleeding; their work is very demanding and strenuous, but they make it look so beautiful.\u201d While realism was the watchword, \u201cWe did make some changes,\u201d Muskey says. \u201cUsually, a club\u2019s dressing rooms lockers store all the dancers\u2019 belongings. But we wanted to see them prepare to go on stage, with all their makeup, garments, and grooming tools filling up the frame.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe scenes set in the gentlemen\u2019s club were captured at an actual New York strip club, Show Palace, which Muskey and her team made their own. \u201cIt was important that we create a look, so we transformed that venue,\u201d she explains. \u201cWe made it more visually dynamic, with reflections, color, and neon \u2013 giving it a little more life.\u201d The club\u2019s owner was so pleased with the changes, that he retained them after filming had wrapped at the site.\r\n\r\nCostume designer Mitchell Travers also got a kick out of designing for some of the notables from the world of music, who play supporting roles. \u201cI really loved working in a different light with globally recognized figures, like Cardi B and Lizzo,\u201d he offers. \u201cI would think about details like what goes in their purses, how big are the purses, and do they take the subway or travel by taxi?\u201d\r\n\r\n\u00a0","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/hustlers-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/hustlers-1024x576.jpg","post_excerpt":"HUSTLERS brings together a compelling mix of humor, spectacle, social commentary, and a group of disparate women who team up and look for ways to even the odds that are stacked against them.","post_date":"29th August 2019, 14:39:33","french_date":"29 ao\u00fbt 2019, 14:39:33","post_date_gmt":"2019-08-29 18:39:33","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails","post_url":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/hustlers\/"},{"id":10805,"title":"Angel Has Fallen","content":"Gerard Butler reveals a whole new side to one of his signature roles--Secret Service agent Mike Banning--in this explosive, rip-roaring thriller in which the fate of the nation rests on the very man accused of attempting to assassinate the President of the United States.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nKnowing he wanted both more grit and more emotional depth, Butler searched for a director who could thread that needle. He found what he was searching for in Ric Roman Waugh, a former stunt performer seen in a long roster of 80s action classics, who came to the fore as a director with his taut, tense trilogy of prison thrillers: Felon, Snitch and Shot-Caller, Waugh had also directed That Which I Love Destroys Me, a documentary about Iraq war veterans dealing with traumatic stress disorders and the psychic wounds of war, which sealed the deal.\r\n\r\nThe first time Butler met with Waugh, the ideas started flowing freely and that process did not stop until the final print was locked.\r\n\r\nWaugh jumped right away at the idea of exploring Mike Banning not just in jeopardy but in a chaotic state of mind. He knew from making That Which I Love Destroys Me that a man like Banning would, like so many real-life warriors in the military and law enforcement worlds, have to pay the piper for the mental, physical and spiritual toll of his work.\r\n\r\nEarly on, Waugh met with a man who is in many ways the real-life version of Mike Banning: the film\u2019s security advisor, Mickey Nelson, a 28-year veteran of the Secret Service who served under four presidents, most recently President Obama. Nelson confirmed that Secret Service agents wrestle the intoxicating effects of adrenaline. \u201cMickey talked openly about the rush you get from protecting the most important person in the country\u2014and he also talked about getting to a point where you crave that intense vigilance all the time,\u201d says Waugh. \u201cThat\u2019s exactly what Mike is thinking about as he faces a desk job. It brings up this huge question for him: do I keep trying to be the person I was in my youth or do I find a way to embrace who I\u2019ve become? It\u2019s something a lot of people go through in all walks of life.\u201d\r\n\r\nHe was Speaker of the House in Olympus Has Fallen and Vice President in London Has Fallen, but now, Morgan Freeman\u2019s President Trumbull has taken on the mantle\u2014and all the hazards\u2014of being Commander-in-Chief. Nearly assassinated and told his most trusted Secret Service agent is the prime suspect in the deadly attack, Trumbull faces a dilemma that could endanger not only his cherished friendship with Mike Banning but the future of the world.\r\n\r\nFor Freeman, it was fun to climb the ladder to the presidency. \u201cIn this one, I\u2019m elevated again. I\u2019m the president, but that means I am now directly in harm\u2019s way,\u201d he muses. Freeman looked forward to finally having one-on-one scenes with Butler. \u201cThis is actually the first time Gerry and I have really worked together like this,\u201d Freeman notes. \u201cIn the other films, I\u2019ve been in a safe bunker somewhere, or in DC while he was in London. Finally, we were able to work mano a mano, which was a true pleasure for me.\u201d\r\n\r\nCreating a sometimes comical, but always compelling, contrast with Butler\u2019s Mike Banning is the casting of Nick Nolte, known for his portraits of characters with tough hides but convoluted innards. Here, he brings a sense of frayed dignity to a man not quite sure if he\u2019s ready for redemption. Nolte came aboard because he loved the idea of putting such a damaged, complicated, razor-tongued character\u2014one who reflects a reality for some veterans\u2014in the middle of the hardcore action. \u201cI was interested in the challenge of this role,\u201d Nolte explains, \u201cand I was also drawn to working with Gerard. That turned out to be a bigger treat than I even imagined it would be because he really is at the top of his game right now.\u201d\r\n\r\nTo lock Mike Banning into a chaotic world of ceaseless jeopardy, Waugh turned to a crack behind-the-scenes team. The bottom line for all could be summed up in one word: groundedness, \u201cI like to capture how people really move in a fight or a chase, what it really sounds like and the visceral feel of it,\u201d explains Waugh. \u201cThe idea was to immerse people completely into Banning\u2019s POV of every moment.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe team included director of photography, Jules O\u2019Loughlin, production designer, Russell De Rozario, costume designer, Stephanie Collie, editor, Gabriel Fleming and composer, David Buckley, who created a score that swerves from propulsive to intimate.\r\n\r\nWith the shoot taking place largely in the UK and Bulgaria, De Rozario got creative for many of his sets. For example, he used bunkers at the former U.S. Air Force base at Upper Heyford in Oxfordshire to create Salient Security\u2019s training facility where Banning goes through a terrifying simulation in the opening moments of the film.","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/angel-has-fallen-v2-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/angel-has-fallen-v2-1024x576.jpg","post_excerpt":"Gerard Butler reveals a whole new side to one of his signature roles--Secret Service agent Mike Banning--in this explosive, rip-roaring thriller in which the fate of the nation rests on the very man accused of attempting to assassinate the President of the United States.","post_date":"19th August 2019, 13:36:59","french_date":"19 ao\u00fbt 2019, 13:36:59","post_date_gmt":"2019-08-19 17:36:59","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails","post_url":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/angel-has-fallen\/"},{"id":10794,"title":"Where\u2019d You Go, Bernadette","content":"From acclaimed Director Richard Linklater, and based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Maria Semple, Where\u2019d You Go, Bernadette is a hopeful chase through the complicated world of the chic, genius, self-observer Bernadette Fox (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett). An inspiring comedy about a loving Mom who becomes compelled to reconnect with her creative passion after years of sacrificing herself for her family. Bernadette\u2019s leap of faith takes her on an epic adventure that jump starts her life and leads to her triumphant rediscovery.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMaria Semple\u2019s comedy adventure novel Where\u2019d You Go, Bernadette debuted in 2012 and soon after climbed to the top of the New York Times best-seller list, where it stayed for over a year. Touching, heartwarming, hilarious and heart-racing, the world of the prickly and uniquely captivating creature that is Bernadette Fox was ripe for a big screen adaptation when Annapurna Pictures and Color Force acquired it in 2013.\r\n\r\nA few years later, Richard Linklater and his team were brought on. The Oscar-nominated Director was immediately intrigued. \u201cIt\u2019s a really complex portrait of a middle-aged woman who is kind of a genius but who isn't practicing her art,\u201d he says. \u201cWhat that adds up to is kind of funny and a little scary. For anyone. It's also a wonderfully complex portrait of a long-term relationship. Parenting, co-parenting, the ups and downs of that.\u201d\r\n\r\nLinklater also felt a personal connection to the character of Bernadette. \u201cI think my mom is kind of a Bernadette,\u201d he says, laughing. \u201cShe would leave the family for days at a time. Brilliant, but erratic a little bit. I felt I knew the character.\u201d\r\n\r\nAdding to the vibrancy of Bernadette\u2019s world was Blanchett herself, who knew what she was signing up for when she took the title role. \u201cThe novel was absolutely thrilling, hilarious to read, but a bugger to adapt,\u201d she says, laughing. \u201cStructurally, it's really difficult to translate to the screen. But I think at the heart it's very much the same.\u201d\r\n\r\nBringing any book to the big screen is a process, but Where\u2019d You Go, Bernadette presented a unique set of challenges. An epistolary novel, the story unfolds over the course of a series of correspondences, through which Bee tracks down her mother\u2019s whereabouts. Linklater knew he had a puzzle on his hands. \u201cI think the obvious first question is: How the hell do you adapt a bunch of letters and emails as source material?\u201d he asks. \u201cThis was certainly one of the more challenging adaptations imaginable. You have to make some pretty big choices. The idea was to not be too intimidated by that, and really just grab those characters and the fundamental story.\u201d To take literal letters off a page and craft a cohesive visual interpretation, Linklater enlisted co-writers Holly Gent and Vince Palmo \u2014 he had directed their adaptation of Me and Orson Welles and worked with them on other screenplays.\r\n\r\nLinklater is known for his spot-on casting and talent discovery. Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey were relative unknowns when Dazed and Confused hit theaters, and Boyhood star Ellar Coltrane was not only inspired casting, he spent eleven years being filmed. So, when Annapurna\u2019s Megan Ellison gave Linklater a copy of Where\u2019d You Go, Bernadette to read, he was in a different situation. \u201cCate had read the book before we received it from Annapurna,\u201d says Sledge. \u201cEarly on she really wanted to play this character.\u201d And obviously it worked out. Says Semple, \u201cIt was so fantastic to hear that Cate Blanchett was bringing Bernadette to life. The thing that got me most excited was all the intelligence that I knew she would bring to the role. And that you could tell there was just something wicked about her in the best possible way.\u201d\r\n\r\nBlanchett went to Seattle to meet Semple before filming started to hear about how the best-selling author came up with\u00a0 Bernadette. \u201cI wanted to give her a present,\u201d says Semple, \u201cand I thought: What do you give to Cate Blanchett who you know has everything? So, I took the prescription out of my dark glasses, put plain dark lenses in them, and gave them to her. I said, \u2018Here's a little talisman, this is where it all started, these are literally my dark glasses that I've had for ten years and I want you to have them.\u2019\u201d It was a touching gesture, but Semple couldn\u2019t have anticipated the influence. The first time she showed up on set to see Blanchett in full Bernadette glory, the actress was wearing the glasses! \u201cI pictured her keeping them at best, throwing them away at worst,\u201d she says. \u201cBut she insisted that that's what she wear for the movie.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe look of the production was almost as important as the look of Bernadette: Seattle is one of the main characters in the novel, and for years, Sledge scouted locations there to film. When Seattle looked unlikely Sledge and the creative team looked to Vancouver as well. So it was a complete surprise to everyone that they found their Seattle in a suburb of Pittsburgh. \u201cThe search for Straight Gate spanned two and a half years, two countries, five cities\u2026\u201d says Production Designer Bruce Curtis, referring to the quirky wonder that is the former Straight Gate Home for Girls, where Bernadette, Bee, and Elgie live.","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/whered-you-go-bernadette-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/whered-you-go-bernadette.jpg","post_excerpt":"From acclaimed Director Richard Linklater, and based on the New York Times best-selling novel by Maria Semple, Where\u2019d You Go, Bernadette is a hopeful chase through the complicated world of the chic, genius, self-observer Bernadette Fox (Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett).","post_date":"11th August 2019, 12:21:13","french_date":"11 ao\u00fbt 2019, 12:21:13","post_date_gmt":"2019-08-11 16:21:13","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails","post_url":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/whered-you-go-bernadette\/"},{"id":10783,"title":"Good Boys","content":"Just how bad can one day get? The creative minds behind Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party take on sixth grade hard in the outrageous comedy Good Boys.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nAlthough longtime creative partners Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky met while filming Harold Ramis\u2019 Bedazzled, they admit that it feels as if they\u2019ve known one another since they were kids. The instant friends bonded over their shared wicked sense of humor and a mutual love of the turn of a phrase; soon, they\u2019d become roommates and, five years later, professional screenwriters.\r\n\r\nWhen considering the comedy that would propel them from writing team to a filmmaking team, the duo knew they wanted to mine the period of pre-adolescence. \u201cWe\u2019re attracted to stories about these years and have believed in Good Boys for a long time,\u201d says Stupnitsky. \u201cThere\u2019s no close second; it\u2019s just the most awkward age. We both have close anecdotes about being 12, 13 years old and just trying to make it through our world. That awkwardness lends itself so well to comedy.\u201d Ultimately, mixing innocence with debauchery made them laugh, and they felt that audiences would respond to humor that was equal parts na\u00efvely unintentional and wildly inappropriate. \u201cEspecially because these kids are doing things they don\u2019t understand.\u201d\r\n\r\nFor inspiration, the storytellers discussed Stand by Me, Ferris Bueller\u2019s Day Off, The Hangover and a live-action South Park. \u201cThe premise of a comedic coming-of-age story with kids and swearing always seemed like a funny idea,\u201d Eisenberg says. \u201cWe felt that the younger the kids, the funnier it would be.\u201d Stupnitsky adds: \u201cThe idea of an R-rated movie starring children just made us laugh.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe team brought their spec script to Nathan Kahane and Brady Fujikawa at Good Universe, who loved the balance between shocking and poignant. The company then took the project to James Weaver, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen\u2019s Point Grey Pictures. \u201cNathan and Brady were excited about the script,\u201d executive producer Josh Fagen says. \u201cWe read it and thought it was hilarious. We ultimately decided it was just crazy enough to work, which is the sweet spot for our films.\u201d\r\n\r\nFrom casting and dailies, to developing the script, Rogen and Goldberg were involved throughout production. When the project ended up at Universal, it came together quickly, going into production in less than a year. \u201cFrom the moment we heard the concept, we were already committed to Point Grey making Good Boys,\u201d says Rogen. \u201cIt allowed for a lot of nuanced comedy.\u201d Goldberg was inspired from the moment he read the script. \u201cGood Boys reminded me of a modern version of Stand by Me, which is one of my favorite films,\u201d Goldberg says.\r\n\r\nTo find the trio of young actors to play the leads in Good Boys, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg turned to casting guru Rich Dellia\u2014who\u2019d cast Point Grey\u2019s The Disaster Artist\u2014for his expertise. \u201cWe\u2019d work with Rich again in a heartbeat,\u201d says Stupnitsky. \u201cBetween It and Shazam!, he\u2019d already seen every kid in North America. He was just invaluable.\u201d\r\n\r\nShot throughout summer 2018 in and around Vancouver, British Columbia, the production of Good Boys coincided with the young cast\u2019s summer break from school. Point Grey has long lensed there, and the execs found the city and its people to be extraordinarily welcoming to their productions. \u201cVancouver is one of our favorite places to shoot films,\u201d says producer James Weaver. \u201cThe crews are top-notch and incredibly hardworking, as well as just nice people to be around.\u201d","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/good-boys-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/08\/good-boys.jpg","post_excerpt":"Just how bad can one day get?

Although he experienced a real-life nightmare that would have destroyed most other people, Banks survived five years behind bars and another five on probation. His story of perseverance gained widespread media attention in 2012 when he was exonerated with the help of the California Innocence Project.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFilm producer Amy Baer (Last Vegas, Mary Shelley) of Gidden Media saw a news report about Banks\u2019 remarkable case on a Los Angeles TV station and knew instantly it was a story important enough to be shared on the big screen. \u201cBrian\u2019s tale of survival was incredibly compelling,\u201d she says. \u201cHere was a young man trying to reclaim a decade of his life that was stolen from him, and I felt that turning his past into a movie might be a way of transforming that negative moment into a positive one.\u201d\r\n\r\nThree years later, \u201c60 Minutes\u201d aired a major report on Banks, which productrice Shivani Rawat (Trumbo, Captain Fantastic) happened to see. Shortly thereafter, Baer met with Rawat and her producing partner Monica Levinson (Danny Collins, Beirut) and asked if they would be interested in developing a feature with her. \u201cI didn\u2019t even let Amy finish before I told her I was in,\u201d says Rawat. \u201cMonica and I really wanted to tell this story with her.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe three producers traveled to New York to meet with Banks in person, and were each impressed with his indomitable spirit and positivity. \u201cBrian lights up the room when he walks in,\u201d says Levinson. \u201cHe just makes you happy, and every time you look at him you think: \u2018How can you have gone through such a terrible experience and still be that human right now?\u2019\u201d\r\n\r\nTo turn Banks\u2019 story into a script, Baer reached out to award-winning screenwriter Doug Atchison. \u201cAmy was aware of a film I\u2019d written and directed called Akeelah and the Bee,\u201d says Atchison. \u201cCuriously enough, Brian actually saw that film while he was in prison. He had the ability to check out DVDs, so he watched it and told me later that it inspired him. Apparently when Amy and her team were talking with him about writers to tell his story, my name came up and he responded positively.\u201d\r\n\r\nAfter signing on to write the script, Atchison met with Banks and discussed the events surrounding his wrongful incarceration. \u201cHearing this young man talk about what had happened to him in solitary confinement, and how he was able to get through it, really drew me in. He\u2019d been waiting years to tell this story in its entirety, and that\u2019s what he did. He told me about his whole life.\u201d\r\n\r\nIn the film\u2019s title role, award-winning actor Aldis Hodge (Hidden Figures, Straight Outta Compton) delivers a performance of rare insight and depth, due in large part to the emotional bond he felt with Banks. \u201cI knew instantly that this would be a special project for me because I really connected with the story and the character,\u201d says Hodge. \u201cSomething about the way Doug wrote it just sparked my attention.\u201d\r\n\r\nHodge admits to being nervous going into his first audition because of how badly he wanted the role. \u201cThen about a week later, they asked me to come in again and meet with Tom Shadyac,\u201d he recalls. \u201cIt was actually more of a discussion about who I was as a person. Tom really wanted to learn about me because he was searching for an element of synergy between Brian and the actor cast to portray him.\u201d\r\n\r\nBetween that first and second audition, Hodge hit the gym and began bulking up. \u201cI knew if I wanted this job I\u2019d have to be prepared for it,\u201d he says. \u201cSo, when Tom finally saw me, he said, \u2018Man, you put on some weight!\u2019 I think he respected the fact that I was showing him I was ready to do the work.\u201d\r\n\r\nBanks was working for the National Football League at the time, so the two men met at an NFL office in New York to talk things over. \u201cIt wasn\u2019t football season, so we had this big conference room all to ourselves,\u201d Atchison explains. \u201cI brought my camera with me and recorded about 13 hours of Brian telling me his life story, from beginning to end. It was my job to ask the right questions in order to extract all the facts of what happened and how he felt about it.\u201d\r\n\r\nBanks says he agreed to have his life made into a feature film because he\u2019s committed to helping others who are struggling in a similar situation. \u201cBy telling my story in this movie, I hope that we can prevent, or at least minimize, wrongful convictions from continuing to happen in the future. The truth is that wrongful convictions and social injustices don\u2019t receive the recognition they should. Too often, it\u2019s out of sight, out of mind. If we don\u2019t talk about it, people won\u2019t ever get engaged enough to do something about it.\u201d","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/07\/brian-banks-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/07\/brian-banks.jpg","post_excerpt":"The inspirational true story of Brian Banks (Aldis Hodge), an All-American high school football star with a full scholarship to USC who finds his life upended when he is wrongly convicted of a crime he didn\u2019t commit.

Morgan transformed the underground street-racing cowboys into reluctant fugitives pulling off high-stakes heists on the international stage, and then upped the ante with next-level exploits and deadly new adversaries.\r\n\r\nWith Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham on board as stars and producers, the focus turned to developing the screenplay. The theme of family has always been one of the unifying threads that weaves through the Fast universe. That theme takes center stage in Hobbs & Shaw and shapes the decisions and motivations of both lead characters.\r\n\r\nThe filmmakers now shifted their attention to securing a director with the vision and the depth and breadth of skills necessary to harness the enormous scale, action, character detail and humor of Hobbs & Shaw.\r\n\r\nIn David Leitch, the producers knew they found a director with the versatility to do it all. Leitch\u2019s recent hit box-office trifecta of Deadpool 2, Focus Features\u2019 Atomic Blonde and John Wick (co-directed with Chad Stahelski) proved that he could navigate a mix of genres and infuse the film with a fresh new cinematic take on action and character-driven story. It\u2019s a rare combination of qualities for a director, but Leitch himself is a rarity.\r\n\r\nAlthough Fast fans already know Hobbs and Shaw, David Leitch wanted to re-introduce them on their own terms and establish their lives away from the rest of the Fast team. The first scene in the film hilariously contrasts Hobbs\u2019 laid-back life in California with Shaw\u2019s extravagant life in London, using a split screen to highlight just how opposite these two heroes are.\r\n\r\n\u201cThe opening sequence is really clever and is one of my favorite little moments of the movie,\u201d Statham says. \u201cIt\u2019s spot-on because Hobbs and Shaw are so different yet so similar. I think it\u2019s a tightrope that Dave walks rather well throughout the film.\u201d\r\n\r\nWith every new chapter in the Fast franchise, the stakes are exponentially higher, and the villains exponentially more indomitable. On the surface, Hobbs and Shaw are both such fierce warriors that, as a team, they should be able to handily defeat any foe. Hobbs is all powerful brawn while Shaw possesses a lethal elegance. On paper, they should be unstoppable. So, the filmmakers needed to create a new type of nemesis unlike any in the history of the franchise\u2014a mold-breaking adversary worthy of these two fearless heroes.\r\n\r\nFinding an actor who could embody Lorr\u2019s intelligence, raw power and intensity, and who could also plausibly convey a very real threat to Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham on screen, seemed, at first, like an impossible task, but Idris Elba (Thor: Ragnarok, Luther) has built a body of work doing the impossible. \u201cWhen Idris\u2019 name came up, we all got really excited,\u201d David Leitch says. \u201cHe\u2019s the full package. He\u2019s physically imposing; he can do action. Plus, his acting chops are off the charts. You know he\u2019s going to bring this pathos and gravitas to the character while making him both formidable and emotional. These are all the traits you need in a great villain.\u201d\r\n\r\nAlthough key scenes for Hobbs & Shaw were shot in Hawaii and Los Angeles, most of the filming took place in the United Kingdom, in locations ranging from London to Glasgow, to a powerplant near Doncaster in South Yorkshire.\r\n\r\nOne particular location seriously wowed the cast and crew: a night shoot in front of St. Paul\u2019s Cathedral, the dome of which is an iconic fixture of the London skyline. Director of photography Johnathan Sela and his department lit the historical church as the stunning backdrop to a helicopter landing\u2014a first in London\u2014as part of the riveting sequence in which Hattie and her tactical team initiate their covert mission to liberate The Unicorn.","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/07\/fast-furious-presents-hobbs-shaw-pic-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/07\/fast-furious-presents-hobbs-shaw-pic.jpg","post_excerpt":"After eight films that have amassed more than $5 billion worldwide, The Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as DWAYNE JOHNSON and JASON STATHAM reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.","post_date":"9th July 2019, 07:24:47","french_date":"9 juillet 2019, 07:24:47","post_date_gmt":"2019-07-09 11:24:47","comment_count":"0","author_name":"MoreMovieDetails","post_url":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/fast-furious-presents-hobbs-shaw\/"},{"id":10755,"title":"Wild Rose","content":"Rose-Lynn Harlan, 23, is bursting with raw talent, charisma and cheek. She is also fresh out of jail and has two young kids to support. All she wants to do is get the hell out of Glasgow and make it as a country singer. Rose-Lynn thinks her only chance of happiness lies in the Country capital of the world\u2013Nashville, Tennessee. Marion, Rose-Lynn\u2019s mother wants her to settle down, accept her life,andtake responsibility for herself, but when a chance encounter brings Rose-Lynn closer to her dreams of Nashville, she faceswhat she perceives as a choice between family and stardom.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe desire to write a film about Country music had long been burning in writer Nicole Taylor. She explains \u201cCountry music is my passion. I have loved it since I was twelve and its probably the thing that I know most about in this world. The inspiration for WILD ROSE was my own obsession with country music. It\u2019s all I\u2019ve listened to growing up, it\u2019s all I listen to now!\u201d\r\n\r\nTaylor reveals the other inspiration she had for writing Rose-Lynn\u2019s story \u201cI was watching a talent show on a Saturday night, and there was a woman who had an amazing voice but then she revealed she had five children and a history of addiction, and a couple of her kids are in care and it made me question what her dreams should be. And I was struck by not knowing what to want for her. She was so talented. Did that mean she should pursue her talent regardless of the mess in her life? Or, as a mum, should she be knocking this on the head and just be taking responsibility for her kids? That question fascinated me because I didn't know the answer to it. It became the basis for Rose-Lynn and her relationship with her mother.\u201d\r\n\r\nWILD ROSE had been in development with producer Faye Ward for a while. \u201cAs with most films, WILD ROSE has definitely been on its own journey. It\u2019s something that has been in Nicole's soul for a long time, something she just hadto write; and the more you learn about Nicole,the more you realise that this film is a lot of her and her relationship experiences.\u201d\r\n\r\nWard expounds upon the qualities of Taylor\u2019s script that made her continue to champion it,\u201cI love what it says about women, parenthood, dreams and identity.\u201d She goes on to say,\u201cWhat it is to be a parent in this modern world versus what it is to want something elsefor yourself too,and that the film doesn\u2019t give you a clear answer tied up in a bow,and that there are different journeysand roads to travel to find the answers.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe cast and crew had one thing in common when it came to their feelings on filming and living in Glasgow \u2013they all adored their time there. Jessie Buckley says, \u201cGlasgow is a city I would move to in a heartbeat, I absolutely fell in love with it.\r\n\r\nDirector Tom Harper agrees in that being in Glasgow helped them \u2018find\u2019 Rose-Lynn. \u201cFilming in Glasgow,it has such a strong sense of identify,at the same time as being so welcoming.

The film expands the Spider-Man film universe, taking Peter Parker out of his comfort zone and his home in Queens, New York City, and hurling him across Europe during what was supposed to be a school vacation \u2013 but which becomes his greatest challenge and most epic adventure ever.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSpider-Man: Far from Home brings together humor, heart, scale, and everything you love about Spider-Man and the MARVEL Cinematic Universe (MCU). Says director Jon Watts, who previously helmed the blockbuster Spider-Man: Homecoming and, before that, the acclaimed independent drama Cop Car: \u201cWe were always looking for a way to deal with some very emotional themes while remaining true to the tone we set in Spider-Man: Homecoming.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cThis next Spider-Man adventure takes place soon after and fits right in to the events of Avengers: Endgame,\u201d says producer Kevin Feige.\u00a0 \u201cPeter and the world are dealing with the loss of Iron Man, and Peter just wants to take a break to be a regular teenager.\u00a0 But Spider-Man can\u2019t be a regular teenager \u2013 he has responsibilities toward the world, especially now.\u00a0 So when Nick Fury tracks him down on his summer vacation to deal with a new threat, that\u2019s what Peter will have to face \u2013 is he ready to step up?\u201d\r\n\r\nJust as this film opens up a new universe of responsibilities and adventure for Peter Parker, Tom Holland\u2019s journey with the character has been equally life-changing for him. \u201cIt\u2019s been an incredible experience that\u2019s expanded my life in the real world and in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe,\u201d he notes. \u201cIt\u2019s been, literally, a dream come true.\u201d\r\n\r\nAcademy Award\u00ae-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal portrays Mysterio, who his character explains is from an Earth that exists in a dimension parallel to ours. \u201cIt was incredibly important to us to bring an actor of Jake\u2019s intelligence, who carries wit and depth, to the role,\u201d says Pascal. \u201cAs much as we talked about Mysterio in a practical way \u2013 like how his powers would work in the movie \u2013 when Jake got involved, he brought a new level of humanity, unpredictability, and humor to the character.\u00a0 There\u2019s always a desire to bring actors we all love from other films into this world, and Jake\u2019s a great example of the kind of character an actor of his caliber can bring to life.\u201d\r\n\r\nAnother key adult figure in Peter\u2019s life is Happy Hogan, Tony\u2019s Stark\u2019s head of security and best friend. Happy is once again portrayed by actor-filmmaker Jon Favreau, who has been an instrumental force in the MCU since setting its template by directing the franchise\u2019s first film, Iron Man.\r\n\r\nAcademy Award\u00ae winner Marisa Tomei returns as May Parker, a role she first took on in Spider-Man: Homecoming. It was a no-brainer for her to reprise the character. \u201cI am so impressed with this film\u2019s global feel and, at the same time, its hometown heart,\u201d she explains. Unlike previous iterations of the character, Tomei\u2019s May is fully aware of Peter\u2019s secret identity. Moreover, says Pascal, \u201cShe\u2019s a social warrior who puts her nephew\u2019s powers to work for the greater good.\u201d\r\n\r\nZendaya returns as MJ, Peter\u2019s whip-smart classmate, friend and, now, possible love interest. In addition, she figures out a major piece of the Peter Parker puzzle \u2013 that he\u2019s Spider-Man \u2013 further complicating a new romance that\u2019s not going as smoothly as Peter would like.\r\n\r\nLove is also in the air for Peter\u2019s best friend Ned, once again played by Jacob Batalon. Ned is falling for classmate Betty Brant, played by Angourie Rice. \u201cThat romance has also triggered an evolution in the friendship between Ned and Peter,\u201d says Batalon. \u201cIn Spider-Man: Homecoming, Ned was Peter\u2019s sidekick. This time, he\u2019s found love and sees what that\u2019s all about. He\u2019s really happy to make an instant connection with Betty.\u201d\r\n\r\nAlso returning is Tony Revolori, as Flash Thompson, who\u2019s a self-styled Vlogger, as well as a huge fan of Spider-Man \u2013 while being a complete jerk to Peter. \u201cI loved exploring that dichotomy of him loving Spider-Man and always ridiculing Peter,\u201d says Revolori.\r\n\r\nSpider-Man is closely tied to his home in Queens, New York, but Spider-Man: Far From Home expands the webbed hero\u2019s world, taking him to exotic settings all over Europe, including Venice, Berlin, Prague and London. \u201cThe goal was always to shoot as much as possible on location,\u201d says Watts. \u201cThat helped give this film a scale beyond anything possible we would have created on a stage.\u201d\r\n\r\nProduction then moved to the Czech Republic, for sequences set in Prague. The team captured some romantic moments between Peter and MJ on the city\u2019s iconic Charles Bridge, as well as a sequence at The State Opera Building, where Spider-Man tries to maneuver undetected through a gala event. In Liberec, they filmed a spectacular action scene involving a carousel and Ferris wheel that are demolished.\r\n\r\nHolland and the rest of the cast were especially impressed with sets built for a massive action sequence set in Venice, including half of the storied Rialto Bridge and a fish market, as well as a series of massive water manipulations that simulated tidal waves crashing into Peter as he battles the Elementals.","post_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/07\/spider-man-far-from-home-150x150.jpg","big_image":"https:\/\/moremoviedetails.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/07\/spider-man-far-from-home.jpg","post_excerpt":"Columbia Pictures presents a MARVEL Studios \/ Pascal Pictures production, Spider-Man™: Far From Home.

He will do anything to save his five-star driver\u2019s rating.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nVic Manning (Dave Bautista) is a middle aged, old school, alpha detective. He\u2019s divorced from his wife, married to his job, and neglectful of his parental duties to his grownup artist daughter, Nicole. Years of using his hulking body as a battering ram have taken its toll, but Vic still pushes it to the limit. Allergic to both conversation and technology, Vic is quick to get angry and quick to pull the trigger -- a combo that everyone loves in a cop!\r\n\r\nOne day, leaving his eye doctor\u2019s office after having Lasik surgery, Vic receives a tip on the whereabouts of the drug dealer who murdered his partner, his Great White Whale. Unfortunately, Vic wouldn\u2019t be able to spot a whale if it was right in front of him. Even a white one. Eyes blurry and unable to drive himself, Vic calls for an Uber, and guess who answers. Can these two very different men share a Nissan Leaf while hunting drug dealers across Los Angeles? It\u2019s like The Odd Couple but with more explosions.\r\n\r\nIn 2016, screenwriter Tripper Clancy and his manager Jake Wagner came up with the idea of a movie about titled Stuber about an Uber driver named Stu. \u201cI always knew based on the name that this would be an action comedy, and the day after Jake and I discussed it I basically had the entire movie in my head,\u201d recalls Clancy. \u201cThe buddy cop genre is a personal favorite,\u201d he adds.\r\n\r\nIt wasn\u2019t long after Clancy developed the script that it was acquired by Twentieth Century Fox, with Michael Dowse (What If, Goon) set to direct, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Game Night, Vacation) producing and Nicholas Thomas (Let\u2019s Be Cops, Scare Tactics), Jeremiah Samuels (Sleepless, Secret in Their Eyes) and Jake Wagner (Killing Season, Evidence) attached as executive producers.\r\n\r\nDirector Dowse recalls, \u201cAfter I read this script I thought it was the perfect recipe where you could do something that had a lot of heart and a lot of comedy but I thought the action sequences could work really well and all of these pieces could sort of feed into each other to make a pretty unique film.\u201d\r\n\r\nTo play the film\u2019s grizzled cop, the filmmakers knew they needed to find someone who not only embodied the tough guy physique and can take a punch but also someone who could follow the character\u2019s arc and show the vulnerability that Vic ultimately achieves. . In other words, they needed a hard man with a soft side. They found their Vic in Dave Bautista, four-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion and two-time WWE Champion, best known to movie audiences for his role as Drax the Destroyer in Avengers: Infinity War and Guardians of the Galaxy.\r\n\r\nAs Vic\u2019s hapless Uber driver, Stu, the filmmakers chose Kumail Nanjiani, the Pakistani-American stand-up comedian, actor, podcast host, and writer best known for his role on HBO\u2019s Silicon Valley and in 2017\u2019s sleeper comedy hit The Big Sick.\r\n\r\nTo play Vic\u2019s neglected but loving daughter, Nicole, filmmakers brought on Natalie Morales. \u201cNicole is definitely her father\u2019s daughter. They bump heads a lot, and she clearly just wants her father to be present in her life, but the job has always come first.
