Chris Hemsworth (“Thor,” “The Avengers” films) and Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road,” “Nocturnal Animals”) star in 12 Strong, a powerful new war drama from Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media and Jerry Bruckheimer Films that tells the declassified true story of the Horse Soldiers.

The Hollywood News Writers’ Top Movies Of 2017

It’s always difficult putting together these end of year lists. The main reason we don’t usually post a best in show at the end of the year is because it’s rather difficult to know where to draw the lines of terms of what should and shouldn’t be included.

We’re lucky enough to attend some of the big film festivals around the world every year, and some films we see don’t necessarily release in the same calendar year as we see them. It would be easy to simply say that our best of 2017 is made up of motion pictures released during the year January 1st to December 31st, but which release schedule do we use? I will give you an example. The most sensible system to abide by would be the UK calendar, but that would mean films like La La Land and Manchester By The Sea

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that 70 songs are currently in contention for nominations to the best original song category.

Film Review: ‘Antiporno’

Film Review: ‘Antiporno’
Tasked with contributing to Nikkatsu’s “Roman Porno Reboot Project” — a salute to the studio’s prolific run of sometimes-adventurous sexploitation features in the 1970s and ’80s — culty latterday director Sion Sono delivers a critique of the genre that’s very tricky in structure, yet in gist as blunt as its title. “Antiporno” has plenty of nudity and (non-graphic) sexual content. Nonetheless, viewers seeking titillation are much less likely to be satisfied than those who’ll appreciate this surreal, aesthetically bold gizmo as the latest left-turn in its creator’s idiosyncratic career.

On vainglorious display in the unnatural habitat of her bright-yellow loft apartment, Kyoto (Ami Tomite) is a writer/artist who acts and is treated more like a spoiled pop star. A typical day full of interviews, photo shoots, TV appearances and meetings begins as she’s woken by older personal assistant Noriko (Mariko Tsutsui). She treats the latter with an abusive contempt that often spills

China Box Office: ‘Coco’ Stays Tops Ahead of ‘Paddington 2’
Pixar animation, “Coco” stayed on top of a fragmented Chinese box office with a stirring $32.7 million in its third week on release. New release, “Paddington 2” enjoyed second place with $14.5 million.

Benefiting from good word of mouth and only modest competition, “Coco” saw its numbers hold up strongly. The third weekend total represented only a 25% decline compared with the second weekend score of $43.8 million. It scored $6.53 million on Friday, $15.8 million on Saturday and $10.4 million on Sunday, according to data from China’s Ent Group. After three weeks on release, the film has a cumulative $126 million after 17 days on release, by far the best score for a Pixar title in China. (After a three weekends in North America, the film has $136 million.)

Leading out the final major imported film releases of the year, “Paddington 2” had nearly 70,000 screenings per day and took second place on each outing. The first “Paddington” film earned $16.8 million in its 2015 outing.

Perspective Look At The 12 Strong Movie – Chris Hemsworth And Michael Shannon Star

By Marc Butterfield (Analyst, freelance writer, veteran)

Until 1979, most of the modern world had never heard of Afghanistan as little more than a spot on a globe in the library. In that year, the Soviet Union sent special forces commandos in to raid the royal residence and kill the occupants, installing a puppet government. From that point forward, as a people and a place, they have rarely been Out of the news. To the British empire, Afghanistan was well known, but as Americans, we were ignorant of it. In fact, almost any country that has every tried to tame the Afghan territory has failed, and almost always after long, expensive, bloody campaigns. The lesson of futility was learned time and again.

Then, because of the Taliban, a product of soviet invasion and American intervention, acting as hosts of Al Qaeda, Afghanistan once again was put on the radar of the American people.

AC/DC Guitarist Malcolm Young Passes Away at 64

Malcolm suffered through dementia and cancer for the last years of his life and has not toured or recorded with the band since 2008's Black Ice.

Dierks Bentley Wanted His 'Only the Brave' Ballad to Focus on "Holding the Light" Amid "Unimaginable Grief"

Dierks Bentley Wanted His 'Only the Brave' Ballad to Focus on
When Dierks Bentley was writing "Hold the Light," the bittersweet ballad he also performs in Only the Brave, Sony's film based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots, his thoughts were focused on the families of the 19 firefighters who perished in Arizona's Yarnell Hill Fire.

"I thought, 'If they hear this song, how are they going to feel?' " he says. "My greatest dream would be that somehow they found some tiny measure of inspiration or hope in it."

It's an event the country singer cares about deeply: Shortly after the 2013 tragedy, the Arizona native organized a...

Only the Brave movie review: the men who tame wildfires

MaryAnn’s quick take… Familiar in its overall storytelling arcs about risktaking and redemption, but also a sincere tribute to our new firefighting heroes for a warmer planet. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have read the source material (though only after I’d seen the movie) (and I am indifferent about it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

New heroes for a hotter, more fiery planet? Could be. Elite firefighter “hotshots” are the guys who helicopter or hike into wildfires and break them, saving not just a house or two but entire towns, and also wildlife and nature, too. (They literally call themselves hotshots, and it’s tough to snort at this macho boasting because they’re so genuinely badass but also so beneficial, with no downsides. Their important work does not require, say, hurting or killing other people,

James Franco on ‘The Disaster Artist’ and How He Conquered His Fear of Failure

James Franco on ‘The Disaster Artist’ and How He Conquered His Fear of Failure
James Franco is almost over the hill. On a recent Los Angeles afternoon, as he climbs up a steep path on a hike to Griffith Observatory, he starts ruminating about his life. “I realize, ‘James, you’re 40,’” says the actor, who is actually 39. “I have achieved all the things that I dreamed when I was younger. And realizing, ‘Oh, those things are not going to fill the hole.’” As he approaches this milestone, he says he’s not afraid to slow down and focus, after bouncing from one project to the next for most of his life: “Do fewer things, and do things that you really love, and give them the attention they deserve.”

For Franco, a constant state of frenzy has been a shield, to protect him from failure. “It was a defense mechanism,” he says. “If I do a lot of things and one of them comes out and people don’t like it, I’m

Video: Only the Brave – “Waterlogged” Clip

Only the Brave is in cinemas today and there is a new clip to wet our appetite. This one in particular shows the film is not without its humour as the Granite Mountain Hotshots are drenched in water by a passing plane unaware of their presence.

Only the Brave tells the true story of the “navy seals of firefighters” the Granite Mountain Hotshots who took on the Yarnell Hill fire back in 2013. Directed by Joseph Kosinski, it stars Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Taylor Kitsch and Jennifer Connelly.

Only The Brave review

Josh Brolin headlines ensemble drama Only The Brave, telling the real-life story of heroic firefighters. Here's our review.

Following the template of sorts set by Peter Berg’s films Deepwater Horizon and Patriots Day, Only The Brave is another true story of genuine American heroes. It’s not clear from the start it’s a true story if you’re unfamiliar with the real life events behind the film, as instead, the movie gets going with introducing us to an ensemble bunch of frontline forest firefighters, who try to divert fires by, quite literally, lighting more fires.

The fire company is led by Eric Marsh, played by Josh Brolin, who gamely tries to outgruff Jeff Bridges, who in turn plays his boss. Marsh pushes for better resources for the group who become the Granite Mountain Hotshots, as their lives become engulfed by Arizona fire season, and the ongoing battle to keep flames at bay.

Second Opinion – Only the Brave (2017)

Only the Brave, 2017.

Directed by Joseph Koskinski.

Starring Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly, James Badge Dale, Andie MacDowell and Taylor Kitsch.

Synopsis:

The firefighters in Prescott, Arizona are determined to become a front line crew tackling forest fires. After taking on new recruits and going through rigorous training, they win the accolade of “Hotshots”. Their experience and courage are put to the test in the ferocious Yarnell Hill Fire. Based on a true story.

When the Granite Mountain Hotshots went out on a routine assignment to fight the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona in June 2013, nobody could have imagined the result would be the greatest loss of firefighters in America since 9/11. That’s not a spoiler for Only the Brave. The story is well documented, starting with the feature in GQ that inspired Joseph Kosinki’s film. And, although it’s more familiar to American audiences than those in the UK,
