Jeff Bridges Discusses The Depth Of Hell Or High Water


Jeff Bridges

Now with Hell or High Water Jeff Bridges has his best role since his Oscar-winning turn in Crazy Heart. Bridges plays the curmudgeonly, savvy Texas Ranger Marcus Hamilton, quietly chasing down bank robbers Chris Pine and Ben Foster. "What I liked about this movie is that it's not all so cut and dried," Bridges says. "You just never can quite figure out who are the so-called good guys and who are the bad guys. I think there's a bit of good guy and bad guy in almost everyone in this film. Marcus is a man who not only is underestimated by other people, but I also think he, like a lot of us, underestimates himself."

Jeff Bridges in Hell Or High Water

The script is by Taylor Sheridan, who also wrote Sicario, and Bridges loves the way the story transcends the genres. "It's about these times today as much as the classic theme of the West fading," he says. "I guess all times change - that's a rule - but this movie's about these specific times and the power of money and banks and what that's doing to our society."

'The Little Prince' Comes To Netflix This Summer


Netflix Jeff Bridges

'The Little Prince' is coming to Netflix in the US and Canada this summer, five months after it's original release date with Paramount. Based on the 1943 French novella of the same name by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, this unique children's drama blends together stunning CGI animation and classic stop-motion techniques.

The movie originally made its premiere at Cannes Film Festival and earlier this year it won Best Animated Film at the César Awards in France. It's due to hit Netflix later this year but is also expected to have a theatrical run.

"The Little Prince" Aims To Preserve Authenticity, But Will It Impress At Cannes?


Jeff Bridges James Franco Marion Cotillard

It was pretty gutsy of American director Mark Osbourne to take on the adaptation of one of the most beloved works of French literature – The Little Prince – and then give it a Cannes premiere.

Paul Rudd
Paul Rudd voices The Prince in the ambitious production.

So maybe it was self-awareness that led Osbourne to employ a slightly different take. The movie is a story within a story, where in which a Little Girl, voiced by Mackenzie Foy (the 10-year old Murph in "Interstellar") is introduced to poet and novelist Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic by an elderly aviator (Jeff Bridges). It echoes the original story, in which an aviator, who crashes in the dessert, forms a friendship with a small boy, the "Little Prince", who says he is from an asteroid and tells the story of his life.

The Giver: What Do We Need To Know?


Jeff Bridges Meryl Streep Taylor Swift Phillip Noyce

American social science film, The Giver, was recently released on 15 August in the USA and is due to hit UK cinemas in the next few months. The film centres on a ‘perfect’ utopian society that lives without pain, war, suffering, differences or choice. However, when 12-year-old Jonas, played by Brenton Thwaites, is chosen to be the community’s Receiver of Memories, he must take on the emotions lacking in his perfect community and confront the unhappy truths of the real world.

The Giver
Jeff Bridges and Brenton Thwaites star in The Giver

Based on the 1993 novel of the same name by Lois Lowry, the movie has been produced by Jeff Bridges who spent years trying to bring the futuristic novel to the big screen. After encountering obstacles when Warner Bros. bought the rights to the film, Bridges was finally able to bring his vision to worldwide cinemas.

Uneventful Box Office Maintains Summer Momentum


Chris Pratt Zoe Saldana Arnold Schwarzenegger Sylvester Stallone Wesley Snipes Jet Li Jeff Bridges

Not much to report from the box office after this week – despite all its manpower, Expendables 3 just couldn’t outgun previous chart toppers Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy and ended up fourth in a line of new releases and return champions. The Turtles continued their reign with a respectable $28,4 million on their second outing according to Rentrak (via The Huffington Post).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Check out the guns on that turtle.

Guardians trailed only slightly behind with $24,7 million. In a slight disappointment for Marvel, the superhero space opera lost its lead in just the second week to the CGI-heavy TMNT flick. Even so, on its third week, GotG has reached an impressive cume of $222 million for distributor Walt Disney. Coupled with TMNT’s earnings this should enough to restore some faith in the 2014 summer box office from studios. For comparison, August so far marks a 14% increase in profits since last year, which of course concerns the average moviegoer roughly 0%.

The Lesser Known Films Of Robin Williams


Robin Williams Al Pacino Jeff Bridges Danny Devito

The late Robin Williams was well-known for a number of iconic roles and had spread his talent liberally across comedy, thriller, drama and animation. From the fantastically eccentric Mrs Doubtfire, to the troubled and unhappy Sean Maguire from Good Will Hunting and the inescapable comedic brilliance of the Genie in Aladdin, Robin Williams stamped his presence on so many films that audiences will never forget.

Robin Williams
Robin Williams tragically took his own life on Monday 11 August

But he also featured in a lot of motion pictures that people have forgotten: perhaps there’s only room in the human brain for so many brilliant movies. As a tribute to the actor, who was found dead as a result of suicide on Monday 11 August, we look at some of his lesser known projects.

Taylor Swift Handed Role On 'The Giver' Movie Adaption


Taylor Swift Meryl Streep Jeff Bridges Alexander Skarsgard

Taylor Swift has accepted a role on the upcoming movie version of The Giver, the popular 'utopian future' novel by author Lois Lowry. The film, a joint production between The Weinstein Company and Walden Media, already has an impressive cast lined up, including Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes, with Swift joining the film in an unspecified role.

Taylor Swift
Swift is contiuing her push to become an actress

Lowry's novel tells the story of a utopian society that gradually appears more dystopian as the story progresses, and is told through perspective of nearly-12-year-old Jonas (Thwaites). In the immaculately organised future, people are assigned positions that they will hold on to for the rest of their loves, and Jonas is to be given the distinction of Receiver of Memory; the man responsible for holding all knowledge of the pre-determined present. Upon meeting the previous 'Receiver,' known as The Giver, he is presented with a wealth of knowledge and with it, a moral dilema of whether to remain with his current society, or escape with his newfound information and live freely for the first time.

R.I.P.D. Review


Bad

The ingredients are all here, but this mash-up of Ghost with Men in Black is a painful misfire, neither funny nor engaging on any level. Even usually fine actors like Bridges and Bacon are left with nothing to do, while Reynolds strains to be the straight guy in a comedy that never raises a smile. And we can feel the filmmakers straining to crank up the wackiness at every turn.

Set in Boston, the story begins when young police detective Nick (Reynolds) refuses to join in a dirty deal proposed by his partner Bobby (Bacon), who then shoots him in cold blood. In the afterlife, Nick is recruited by a manager (Parker) into the Rest In Peace Department, protecting humanity from ghosts who have escaped judgement. His new partner is Wild West sheriff Roy (Bridges), who is reluctant to break the rules when Nick decides to investigate his own death to help protect his widow (Szostak) from Bobby's nefarious plan.

Yes, the plot is so in-grown that it never takes off, circling around a handful of characters even though it involves bringing about the end of humanity. Of course it does. These kinds of movies couldn't have stories that make any sense, and filmmakers can't resist making the ghosts goofy, rubbery cartoons rather than characters who are actually scary or interesting. The excessive use of digital effects makes the whole movie feel desperate as it strains for both laughs and teary emotion, but it gets neither.

Where Does 'The Lone Ranger' Rank In List Of Biggest Movie Flops?


Johnny Depp Gore Verbinski Jerry Bruckheimer Jessica Biel Jamie Foxx Joe Morton Rob Cohen Christopher Walken Jeff Bridges John Goodman Matthew Mcconaughey Geena Davis Matthew Modine Frank Langella Disney

Ok, so by now everyone's well aware that Jerry Buckheimer and Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger is a monumental flop - a serious disaster that could cost Disney $150 million. The Johnny Depp-Armie Hammer starring western took just $48.9 million over the usually lucrative five-day Independence Day weekend - leaving it miles from its $175 million marketing budget, not to mention its $250 million production costs.

The Lone Ranger
Johnny Depp starred as Tonto and Armie Hammer played The Lone Ranger

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney is praying for a return of $150 million abroad, taking its worldwide total to $275 million and $150 million short of its $425 million total budget. "It's very disappointing," said Disney executive vice-president of worldwide distribution Dave Hollis. "Everything was perfect on paper, so today was incredibly frustrating." The problem is, nothing could be described as perfect. If Hollis is referring to Johnny Depp than it's lazy marketing. If he's referring to Verbinski in the directorial seat, or the bloated budget, than it's just stupid talk. The Lone Ranger has received some of the worst reviews of the year - it's a terrible movie - and unfortunately, nobody wants to watch big-budget westerns. Did Cowboys and Aliens teach them nothing?

Kevin Bacon Warns His Wife Kyra Sedgwick: "Kale Isn't Always Healthy"

Ben Affleck Is Guy’S Choice Awards’ ‘Guy Of The Year’


Ben Affleck Clint Eastwood Brad Pitt George Clooney Mickey Rourke Matt Damon Jennifer Aniston Jessica Alba Snoop Dogg Vince Vaughn Jimmy Kimmel Henry Cavill Burt Reynolds Jeff Bridges Jake Gyllenhaal Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck was awarded with the Spike’s Tv ‘Guy of the Year Award’ on Saturday (aired last night). The ceremony took place in Culver City, California. Affleck was presented his antler shaped (nicknamed ‘mantler’) award by fellow Oscar winning actor and director, Clint Eastwood. This is one of many awards; Affleck has received this year including an Oscar for his film Argo.

The Awards were first held in 2007 and previous winners have included Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Mickey Rourke, Maek Wahlberg and Matt Damon. As you’d expect, the awards are hardly female friendly (there is an award named the ‘holy grail of hot’) yet many turned out for the event including Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Alba.

The awards are hardly on par with the Oscars or a Golden Globes – there was a category in 2012 for ‘Hottest Zo(o)e(y)’. The nominations for this particular award were somewhat limited. However, the award’s lack of prestige did not prevent Affleck celebrating backstage with Snoop Dogg, Vince Vaughn and Jimmy Kimmel.

Dude Won't Abide: Coens Play Down 'Big Lebowski' Sequel At Cannes


Ethan Coen Joel Coen Jeff Bridges Oscar Isaac Carey Mulligan Justin Timberlake

The Coen brothers may have emerged as the new favourites for this year's Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival after their new movie Inside Llewyn Davis received five star reviews across the board, though the filmmakers have shot down reports they are developing a sequel to their cult hit The Big Lebowski.

The 1998 comedy about Jeff Bridges' hippie bowler character 'The Dude' is amongst the Coen's most popular work and Bridges himself has spoken of being open to a sequel. "John Turturro, who wants it, talks to us incessantly about doing a sequel about his (bowler) character Jesus," Ethan Coen said at Cannes this week, "He even has the story worked out, which he's pitched to us a few times, but I can't really remember it. No, I don't see it in our future." If Ethan left the slightest possibility of a sequel, brother Joel shut down door firmly shut, "I don't think it's going to happen ... I just don't like sequels," he said.

Jeff Bridges And Ryan Reynold Hunt For Bad-Guys In The R.I.P.D. Trailer


Jeff Bridges Ryan Reynolds

Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds are starring in one of the summers most anticipated action blockbusters, R.I.P.D. and after months of waiting the first trailer for the supernatural, action-packed adventure has gone viral. The buddy cop film will be released in cinemas, in 3-D of course, by Universal Pictures on July 19 this year.

R.I.P.D. (which stands for 'Rest in Peace Department') has been adapted from the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name and follows recently deceased police officer, Nick Walker (Reynolds), who was killed in the line of duty at the prime of his career only to find himself being drafted in to police paranormal activity from beyond the grave. Teamed with the battle-scarred sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges), it's up to these two to catch foul souls that have managed to escape judgment when they were in limbo whilst Reynold's character also tries to track down the man who killed him and drew him into this bizarre world in the first place.

We've all had that moment; looking at photos of our favourite celebs and then jumping out of our seats screaming, 'He's HOW old?!' Well, we've been doing a lot of that here at ContactMusic. Some stars seem to have crept up the age ladder pretty sneakily, the odd wrinkle and grey hair barely registering on our radar, while others don't seem to have aged at all! English football player David Beckham was in his twenties when he rose to global popularity and, looking at his recent H&M underwear advert, it seems that his iconic hairstyles and tattoos are our only way of working out the old from the newer pictures of him. However, he is only 37 and has plenty of time to catch up yet. It's the over-50s that have really had our mouths agape in recent times as we've been scouring the net for the most youthful looking middle to old aged stars.

Video - Jeff Bridges Attends Press Call For His Debut Album 'Jeff Bridges'


Jeff Bridges was at a press junket at Barnes & Noble yesterday, to promote his new self-titled album.

Bridges recently revealed that the original idea for the album was conceived of over thirty years ago, when he became friends with Nashville legend Kris Kristofferson, on the set of epic film Heavens Gate, the press association reported. He also talked about how his love of music has inspired him to take on acting roles that require him to play music: "Whether it's playing jazz piano in Baker Boys or being a country artist in Crazy Heart, it's in me and it's just something that comes out every once in a while."

The Men Who Stare At Goats Review


Excellent
Based on true events as recounted in the Jon Ronson book, this freewheeling war comedy is deeply entertaining due to the crazy-but-believable premise and wonderfully outrageous characters.

Bob (McGregor) is a Michigan journalist desperate to prove himself, so he heads to Kuwait, hoping to find a story in Iraq. He meets the enigmatic Lyn Cassady (Clooney), whose story is so surreal that he can't help but follow him into the hot zone. Lyn is a member of the New Earth Army, a secret platoon formed in the 1980s by a hippie (Bridges) to create soldiers with Jedi mind powers. But their work went wrong when a jealous teammate (Spacey) dragged them into the dark side.

K-PAX Review


Good
It would be an exaggeration to say that there are no original ideas anymore, that every movie fits some formula we've seen before. But, ya know, the claim isn't that far off the mark, and if the shoe fits...

So the genre we're talking about in the case of K-PAX: A crazy man thinks he's an alien (a psychic, a king, etc.). The obvious question: Which is he: crazy, or an alien, or both? (A crazy alien, now that would be a fun twist on the whole genre wouldn't it?)

Masked & Anonymous Review


Bad
Masked & Anonymous, as a title, comes across as a vague, artsy moniker as inaccessible as the film it represents. But look closer at the name of this movie about revolution and despair, and you'll discover a clear reference to the film's writers; credited as Rene Fontaine and Sergei Petrov, the screenwriters have been unmasked, as it were, revealed to be the film's iconic star, Bob Dylan, and director Larry Charles (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm).

The result of this combination is an overly ambitious film that's as muddled and cryptic as a mumble-filled Dylan vocal. Dylan stars as the symbolically named Jack Fate, an apparent musical legend, jailed in the midst of a brutally downtrodden America where the government has taken over, war is rampant, and even the counter-revolutionaries have counter-revolutionaries.

The Door In The Floor Review


Good

Jeff Bridges and Kim Basinger give a pair of extraordinary performances in "The Door in the Floor" as a couple whose souls and whose marriage have never recovered from the deaths of their teenage sons six years before.

Their lives are like broken teacups glued back together -- they may look undamaged from a distance, but up close it's clear they're now made up of psychological shatters and shards that can never be the same again.

Not that they haven't tried to move forward. Hoping to retard their overwhelming sense of loss, they even had a daughter -- played by 6-year-old Elle Fanning, the not-quite-as-natural little sister of uber-talented 8-year-old Dakota ("Man On Fire") -- who seems to subconsciously understand her function in the family.

Arlington Road Review


Good

There's just one thing standing in the way of "ArlingtonRoad" taking a place among the best film noir politics-and-paranoiathrillers -- the script is so tight that the hero is forced to make a dumbmistake now and again to advance the plot.

That hero is Jeff Bridges, playing a West Virginia historyprofessor who obsesses over his class in domestic terrorism because itdoubles as a form of therapy while grieving for his dead wife -- an FBIagent killed in a botched, Ruby Ridge-like raid.

He's a guy doesn't trust the government one bit, and inhis class sermonizes that federal and extremist conspiracies abound andthat the lone psycho theory applied to most American terrorists is a ruseby the feds to lull the populace into feeling safe again in the wake oftranquillity-shattering attacks.

Simpatico Review


Weak

Adapted from Sam Shepard's play about betrayal, blackmail, and a horse racing scam that haunts its conspirators for 20 years, "Simpatico" gets by for a while on a cast full of tense, brutal, benumbed performances.

Nick Nolte stars as Vinnie, a haunted, hard-drinking and fraudulent private eye who has lived a near-destitute existence in Los Angeles for two decades on hush money extorted from a former friend named Carter (Jeff Bridges), his partner in a pony-fixing during their younger days.

As the film opens, Vinnie sets in motion a chain of events designed to see him trade places with Carter, now a rich Kentucky breeder. He plans not only on usurping the wealth his ex-buddy has amassed since their friendship disintegrated, but also on recapturing the cold heart of Rosie (Sharon Stone), the girl that came between them.
