Nick Nolte Hopes Oscars Nod Will Boost 'Warrior' Sales

January 31st, 2012 1:27pm EST
Nick Nolte
Veteran star Nick Nolte is hopeful his Academy Awards nomination will boost DVD sales of Warrior - because he was "disappointed" with the movie's box office reception.

The 2011 sports drama, about two estranged brothers entering a mixed martial arts tournament, took just $23 million at cinemas, $2 million less than its $25 million budget.

Nolte has been tipped in the Actor in a Supporting Role category at the upcoming Oscars, and he's hoping the high-profile nod will encourage movie fans to watch the fight film.

He tells FOX411's Pop Tarts, "It means we might have better DVD sales. Bu...

Quentin Tarantino Reveals His Best And Worst Of 2011

January 16th, 2012 3:29pm EST
Quentin Tarantino
The highly acclaimed Reservoir Dogs director, Quentin Tarantino, recently released a list of his Top 11 favorite movies of 2011, via The Quentin Tarantino Archives. The list is extremely varied, including a bunch of both mainstream and indie films. Although, some entries are quite unexpected, for example, The Three Musketeers was Tarantino’s 11th favorite movie. The number 1 spot was awarded to Woody Allen’s charming, Midnight in Paris, a complete opposite film compared to that of his favorite in 2010, a la, Toy Story 3.

Alas, with the good, always comes the bad and so Tarantino has also i...

U.S. officials have launched an investigation into reports suggesting Oscar-winning moviemaker Kathryn Bigelow and her screenwriter partner Mark Boal received classified information while they were researching their new Osama Bin Laden film.

Hours after Warrior star Joel Edgerton was confirmed as the new film's leading man, America's deputy inspector general for intelligence and special program assessments, Patricia A. Brannin, revealed an investigation was underway following concerns raised last year by New York politician Pete King.

King raised the issue in August after reading an art...

Warrior actor Joel Edgerton is to play the hero who helped kill Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden in The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow's new all-action war film.

The filmmaker and screenwriter Mark Boal were putting the finishing touches to their script about the search for the terrorist when Bin Laden was killed by a team of Navy Seals last year.

Bigelow and Boal chose to revamp the script and include the scenes of the shoot-out that led to the death of the man behind the 9/11 atrocities in 2001. And now they have their star.

Edgerton has been attached to the project for months ...

Q&A: Meet Disney XD's 'Mr. Young' Star, Brendan Meyer

December 12th, 2011 2:20pm EST
Brendan Meyer Mr. Young
Disney XD’s Mr. Young is a show about a child prodigy who returns to school to teach kids his own age. I recently had a chance to talk to Brendan Meyer, the star of Mr. Young. Here’s what went down.

Q: The lead in a TV show is an opportunity most actors spend an entire career waiting for; what has it been like for you to achieve this at such a young age?

Brendan Meyer: It has been a real thrill to achieve a success like this. I did a lot of work in Film/TV in 2006-2008, but in the year before Mr. Young I didn't work a lot. So, I was really able to appreciate what I got with this role. A...

Warrior - Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton
This weekend’s MMA fight film Warrior has been generating a lot of buzz. The massively popular sport is still looking for a movie to represent it the way Rocky did for boxing. Perhaps this story of two estranged brothers competing in the same tournament will be the one.

Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton play brothers Tommy and Brendan respectively. Tommy is the returning war veteran, an animal in the ring. Brendan is fighting to make ends meet for his family. The pair remained together as they promoted the film, bantering about their fight experience.

Review: 'Warrior' A Wimper, Not A Roar

September 7th, 2011 1:00pm EDT
Warrior
So a previously violent and drunken wrestling coach, a soldier with undiagnosed PTSD, and a high school science teacher walk into a MMA tournament. I'll let you write the punchline. But if you're watching the 2011 testosterone-o-rama “Warrior” the joke's on you.

We open with Tom Hardy (of “Inception” fame) juggling a variety of not-particularly-well-explained-to-the-audience demons, the most distracting of which appears to be irritable switching accent syndrome. We know he's troubled because he's wearing a dark hoodie and drinking from a can inside of a paper bag.

He happens to be jugglin...

The end of the year is always the most exciting time for true movie lovers as the studios release the films they hope to compete in the race for the many awards shows that will happen early next year. This September will have some decent films to choose from (namely "Contagion" and "Drive"), but with a greater amount of less-than-impressive fare than is normally seen. Either way, this first month in the awards season will have moviegoers flocking to the cinema nearly every weekend.

Trailer Preview: Three New Movies To Be Excited About

May 9th, 2011 3:42pm EDT
Bridesmaids
I confess that I am one of those people who have to see the previews when I go to the movies. Trailers, persuasively edited, teasers for upcoming films, are designed to seduce and entice with flashes of movies’ brilliance set to powerful scores. They are movies at their absolute best. While I am a sucker for them, I’m blessed with the gift of knowing if I’m going to love or hate a movie solely on those two-minute gems. Being a trailer whisperer won’t bring in the big bucks, but it helps me avoid paying for bad movies that will be on DVD in a couple months. Thanks to my skills, I didn’t...
