While mum was the word at the Tomorrowland panel at New York Comic Con, a never-before-seen clip screened at the show shines a bit of light on Brad Bird and Damon Lindelof’s latest mystery box of a film.
Tag: George Clooney (1-10 of 74)
On Wednesday, we hit you with a first look at Disney’s Tomorrowland, and now we’re venturing even deeper into this realm of science and technology via the film’s teaser trailer.
The story from filmmaker Brad Bird follows teenager Casey Newton (Under the Dome’s Britt Robertson) on a quest to find this hidden place and uncover why it’s being kept secret in the first place. One man who knows some of the answers is an exile of Tomorrowland, a grizzled former “boy genius” played by George Clooney. READ FULL STORY
It never was, but is always near, can never be seen, but will always show up—although it disappears the moment it arrives…
The solution to this old riddle is simple: Tomorrow. But for those awaiting a glimpse of Disney’s upcoming sci-fi/fantasy adventure Tomorrowland, the answer is not so elusive. Here’s an exclusive preview of what’s-to-come from the deeply shrouded new Brad Bird film.
“We begin our movie asking what did [the future] used to be?” Bird says. “What’s good about the future and what’s scary about it? And we wrestle with those things in a slightly mythical way.”
George Clooney will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, annually given to those who offer “outstanding contributions” to the entertainment world, at this year’s Golden Globes.
Clooney was nominated for his first Golden Globe in 1996 for his performance as a doctor on medical drama ER. He later won Golden Globes for his performances in 2001’s O Brother, Where Art Thou?, 2006’s Syriana (this role also won him an Oscar), and 2011’s The Descendants. READ FULL STORY
George Clooney is going back to some familiar territory for his next directorial effort. The Oscar-nominated Good Night, and Good Luck director has set his sights on Hack Attack, based on journalist Nick Davies’ account of the phone hacking scandal surrounding Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, which led to the demise of News of the World.
“This has all the elements – lying, corruption, blackmail – at the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in London,” said Clooney in a statement. “And the fact that it’s true is the best part. Nick is a brave and stubborn reporter and we consider it an honor to put his book to film.”
Columbia Pictures’ president of production Michael De Luca added: “As the son of a journalist, George has a sharp interest in the role journalism plays in all of our lives – whether that’s for good, as in Good Night, and Good Luck, or for bad. With Hack Attack, George will explore the dark side of that world, a business where all of the rules of journalism are broken in the race for an easy and ever-larger payday.”
Clooney and Grant Heslov’s Smokehouse Pictures banner (Argo) will produce Hack Attack for Sony Pictures Entertainment. Shooting is scheduled to begin sometime next year, but no cast was specified in the announcement.
George Clooney is set to star in Money Monster, a thriller directed by Jodie Foster.
Money Monster will follow a TV show host (Clooney) who gets taken hostage by a gunman while on-air and is forced to reveal high-stakes secrets to his (steadily increasing) audience in order to survive.
Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest project is picking up speed.
In an announcement Monday, Universal Pictures confirmed that they had acquired the worldwide distribution rights to Hail, Caesar!, an original screenplay from the Oscar-winning siblings who will also write and direct the film, which, Deadline reported, centers on a 1950s-era Hollywood “fixer” named Eddie Mannix.
Josh Brolin, who starred in No Country for Old Men and True Grit, will join fellow Coen brothers regular George Clooney (Burn After Reading, Intolerable Cruelty, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) in the pic.
The folks at The Criterion Collection are sorcerers.
Sure, we rely on them to restore and pen beautiful essays about rare or long forgotten triumphs of cinema, but even their work with new releases can leave us awestruck. They have a way of making the already transcendent that much more special, and their upcoming release of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion charmer Fantastic Mr. Fox looks no different.
The three-disc release (out Feb. 18) features a gallery of Roald Dahl’s original manuscripts, an audio recording of him reading his book, puppet animation tests, and the somewhat standard, but no less fascinating, behind the scenes footage of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Jason Schwartzman, and the rest of the cast who helped bring the story to life.

As awards season heats up, the biggest films of the year are revving their Oscar engines. Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, has already claimed several early honors and in the behind-the-scenes featurette below, director Alfonso Cuaron shows us why.
The inside look from Warner Bros. at how they filmed the genre-bending outer space film features Bullock practicing space choreography in her now-infamous tank top on a soundstage, Clooney discussing the screenplay, and the producers talking about the visual effects and technology the film uses so seamlessly.

Sandra Bullock defines booty call for relationship-hungry George Clooney: 'I just need an hour of your time'
Recently George Clooney joked that his Gravity co-star Sandra Bullock had a dirty little habit of drunk-dialing him at 3am every night. “Let me tell you about Sandy,” he joked to Entertainment Tonight. “Yeah, she may say that she’s not all that attracted to me. But she calls every night at three in the morning drunk. ‘Hey George, what are you doin’?’ Nonstop. And then I just send her a bottle of tequila.”
When EW brought up his accusation to Bullock, she laughed and shook her head with faux concern. “Yeah, I heard, I heard. You know what? I’m so embarrassed for him because I think he’s showing his vulnerable side. It’s a booty call. But then he wants the commitment and the marriage and I’m like ‘Dude, I don’t have the time.’ And he’s all ‘But I’m not a one night stand kind of guy.’ Well, then, I can’t. Drunk dialing is what it is, George. I just need an hour of your time.” READ FULL STORY
