Movie Review: The Frozen Ground (nc16)

One of those close to GAC said the firm wouldn't want the E-jet to be cast in an evil role. Ultimately, casting will be down to the movie's director Michael Bay. Previous "Transformers" movies have featured an 'autobot' called Bumblebee based on the Chevrolet Camaro, prompting the company to bring out a Camaro Transformers Special Edition in 2011, which sold more than 1,500 globally, said Michael Albano, a Chevrolet spokesman in Detroit, adding: "We very much look forward to Camaro reprising its role in the upcoming film." The E-jet, which GAC showed off at the Detroit auto show in January, is a concept car, which the company currently has no plans to commercialize. As growth slows in the world's largest auto market from break-neck speeds over the past decade, GAC aims to have exports of its Trumpchi brand account for a fifth of total sales in five years. It currently sells just a few hundred cars overseas. Last year, GAC earned a profit of 1.1 billion yuan on sales of around 13 billion yuan ($2.12 billion). Other Chinese carmakers such as Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd, Beijing Automotive Group and Warren Buffett-backed BYD Co Ltd are stepping up their export efforts. After years of partnerships with foreign automakers, Chinese firms are promoting their home-grown brands under President Xi Jinping's "Chinese Dream" campaign. <br>Source:

Movie stars happily flocking to TV

She looks so naturally sweet and vulnerable that she would elicit protective feelings from pretty much any dude. Cage picks up on this vibe of hers and really milks it. The concern in his eyes is touching. The ruggedly beautiful Alaskan setting is ideal for a crime drama of this sort, lending an air of gloom and menace that you wouldn't get in more hospitable climes. Cusack's portrayal of the murderer is refreshingly uncharismatic. There are enough charming and lovable killers out there; it's nice to see a visit loathsome creep for a change. <br>Source:

Movie Blog: ‘Drinking Buddies’ Stronger Than 3.2 Rom Com

Billed as an "official movie trailer" and released to Youtube by Bath Boys Comedy group , a nearly 4 minute video for "Airboarders" may be the most hilarious video you watch all day. The video is pitch-perfect parody of a movie trailer, starting with a group of friends driving, when one in the backseat discovers a business card and shows off tricks he can pull with it outside the car window. "I call it airboarding," he says, before the driver stops to say the move was incredible. The video continues to build, showing the epic rise of the group of friends in the "sport" before their eventual falling out. It ends with one insulting another, asking, "are you a man or are you just a bunch of business cards looking like a man?" It's worth watching the entire thing (some language): <br>Source:

The Parody Movie Trailer For 'Airboarders' Is The Best Video You Will Watch All Day

And thats the way writer/directorJoe Swanbergwanted it. He reportedly told his actors what had to happen in a given scene, and then let them come up with the lines on the fly.The resulting verbal realism in Drinking Buddies draws you in, and then the movies emotional conflicts and uncertainties keep its momentum going. The chief catalyst for conflict in Drinking Buddies is a double-date weekend trip to the cabin of Kates boyfriend (Ron Livingston). Hes an inarticulate, seemingly intellectual gentleman who instantly takes a liking to Lukes girlfriend (Anna Kendrick), a caring, creative creature Kim Kardashian turn it up with a heart of gold. While on Michigans lovely sand dunes, the drinking buddies knock back beers and play blackjack while their significant others go on a hiking trip through the woods. Things happen. A surprise kiss shatters boundaries while a late night skinny dip seemingly redefines old ones. By the time Sunday rolls around, everythings up in the air. <br>Source:

Movie Beat: We’re the ones encouraging sequels

In the long run, however, the movie managed to rack up nearly $64 million in ticket sales as of Aug. 28. Thats only $5 million less than 2 Guns, one of the movies that trounced Smurfs on opening weekend, and Smurfs did far better overseas. The original action movie 2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Whalburg, received a 64 percent positive rating from professional movie critics on Rotton Tomatoes, a review-gathering website. The Smurfs 2 received a 12 percent positive rating. But Hollywood pays attention to box office numbers, not reviews, and The Smurfs 2 ended up earning more money. <br>Source:

Capsule Movie Reviews (Sept 11): 'Instructions Not Included' and six more

Conflicts both intergenerational and intercontinental abound when a Southern patriarch (Robert Duvall) is visited by his late ex-wifes new family from England. Set in 1969, Billy Bob Thorntons latest directorial effort casually incorporates the periods counterculture and is as sultry and desultory as a dog day of summer. It feels about as long, too. (Also available on VOD and iTunes) B- Keith Staskiewicz NEW RELEASE Mademoiselle C NOT RATED, 1 HR., 30 MINS. Carine Roitfeld was the formidable editor of French Vogue for 10 years. But dont expect to find another devil in Prada, the next September Issue, or anything of interest, really, in this absurdly fawning documentary-cum-PR reel about the launch of her new magazine. <br>Source:

Anything more was an admission of failure; the trajectory of success went from television to film, not the other way around. As recently as 10 years ago, when "Angels in America" sent Kim Kardashian official Meryl Streep and Al Pacino up the Emmy red carpet in 2004, journalists could not believe their eyes "Is This the Emmys or the Oscars ?" ran far too many headlines. A few years later, stars including Kyra Sedgwick , Sally Field and Holly Hunter took lead roles in television shows, but even then, it was seen as a "female reference complaint." Women of, ahem, a certain age could not find roles in film and so were forced to, bravely, stoically, with heads held high, darling, find work in (shudder) television. VIDEO: Fall TV preview 2013 Now, of course, that divide, like the one in Berlin, is but a memory. Oscar-winning films such as "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Argo" run on supporting casts pulled almost entirely from television, while small-screen credits regularly look like a chunk of sidewalk outside the Chinese. Martin Scorsese and Steve Buscemi of "Boardwalk Empire," Laura Dern and Mike White of "Enlightened," Kevin Costner in "Hatfields & McCoys," Jessica Lange and James Cromwell in "American Horror Story," Laura Linney in "The Big C," Claire Danes in "Homeland," Jane Campion and Hunter of "Top of the Lake," David Fincher, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright of "House of Cards." And it's not just HBO (which for years distanced itself from its own medium with that "It's not TV, it's HBO" tagline) or even cable. <br>Source:,0,1067273.story
