Marvin Hamlisch
  • Jerry Weintraub has confirmed that Marvin Hamlisch completed work on Behind the Candelabra before his death - from Roger Friedman:

    Before he died Marvin Hamlisch completed his final full project. Producer Jerry Weintraub confirmed for me tonight that Hamlisch completed all the music for “Behind the Candelabra,” the Michael Douglas and Matt Damon film, directed by Steven Soderbergh. “He finished it all,” Weintraub said. “I can’t believe what happened. He was a great guy.” Weintraub says he’s as much in the dark about what exactly happened to Hamlisch as anyone else this evening. He’d heard, like some others I talked to, that Hamlisch hadn’t felt well in the last few days and may have gone to the hospital. “Behind the Candelabra,” which Weintraub is producing for HBO, tells the story of Liberace’s final years with his lover, Scott Thorson.

  • Scott Bakula discussed his role in Behind the Candelabra at Chicagoist.

  • Bourne Legacy is currently at 43% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Here's part of the IGN review.

    It all makes for a frustrating viewing experience when you know that those [previous] films are superior to this one in every way, shape and form. The result is the fourth best entry in a series of four, and one that leaves you wishing the filmmakers had simply left Bourne’s legacy alone.

    Legacy Reviews

    The majority of reviews I've read so far have said the same thing, good in parts, too long, not enough action, too complicated.

    Universal need Legacy to do well at the box office (Renner and Gilroy also to maintain their reputations) if the word of mouth is not good after the opening weekend things could get interesting.

    If it under performs at the box office it shows that Jeremy Renner's not A-list material quite yet.

    Sad to read of Marvin Hamlisch's death, a great composer. Marcia

    Hamlisch & Legacy

    We happened to catch "The Sting" just a few days ago and really enjoyed Hamlisch's work there.

    Considering Gilroy's strange choices (an unsympathetic lead character who's sole motive for carnage seems to be to get drugs to maintain his strength, for example) and inferior work on Legacy, it's liable to occur a number of people to wonder how much he ever had to do with the trilogy. Which is just fine with me :)

    very funny huffpost article on Legacy

    There's a new and very funny and sarcastic huffpost article about Legacy which asks if seeing Legacy will reduce your intelligence and 24 other questions. The answer is 'yes' :) We're obviously not the only people who feel this way.
    Paula



    Three of the questions:

    Q: So, if Shearling doesn't have access to these pills, is the rest of The Bourne Legacy the story of a once intelligent man who recedes into the own darkness of his mind? Maybe reminiscent of what we saw in movies like Awakenings and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button? The Bourne Legacy sounds really touching.

    A: No. The two travel to Manilla to look for a solution before Cross loses his intelligence.

    Q: OK, but after that, does Cross then vow revenge?

    A: No, the search for the intelligence supplements is the plot of The Bourne Legacy.

    Q: Do we ever see the effects of intelligence loss during The Bourne Legacy?

    A: If you're referring to me after watching this movie for two hours, then yes.

    Haha, too funny :)

    I'm so excited for it to fail, fingers-crossed!

    Another review

    http://www.boston.com/ae/movies/2012/08/08/bourne-legacy-can-revive-the-franchise-without-matt-damon/6KlVlLb39Dnew69jC9xxMN/story.html

    I couldnt help clicking on this when I saw the link on twitter. I like the comment he makes at the end when he says the movie ran out of brain. The reviews seem to have a common theme in that there is no emotional stake in the new character and it's missing Matt.

    I can't believe the plot of this movie is trying to get pills for his intelligence(or whatever) before he runs out. How lame.

    I definitely won't watch The Bourne Legacy because, i don't think the film is not the same without Matt Damon or director Paul Greengrass.

    Many of us agree. Here's an interesting analysis of how Legacy is expected to perform. If we're upset with the unnecessary side-quel with Renner, this article mentions how Universal considered re-booting the series:

    Sequel

    Producer Pat Crowley says they will essentially decide whether to do a sequel on Saturday depending on the Friday grosses.

    Re: Sequel

    At least he's honest, unlike a number of people associated with this project. He flat out admits it's all about the money. It's hovering in the high 50's (rotten) on rottentomatoes this morning. But it's sure to win the weekend, since there's not much competition at this point. It'll probably get a BO boost from that.

    Legacy

    Legacy will open to at least $45 million this weekend, but the CinemaScore is B- (now changed to B by Nikki Finke). Reviews on Rotten Tomatoes hit a peak of 62% but is now back to 51%.

    Supremacy opened to $52 million and Ultimatum $69 million. Watch them try to spin an opening of over $52 million to beat Supremacy.

    A comparison of Legacy vs the previous films:

    Re: Photos

    pics are cute but the comments are awfull, incredibly sad how people feel they can just go on the net and write things like that, we have turned in to a cruel nasty society but maybe we were always like that and the internet is just the platform that allows us to say it more openly for anyone to see?

    Cannes

    A writer for Le Monde quotes Steven Soderbergh as saying the premiere of 'Behind the Candelabra' could be next May in France. That would be Cannes.

    Sequel in doubt

    With a final tally of $38.1 million, will Universal scrap sequel plans (no, but I like the story):

    Re: Sequel in doubt

    From one headline that I read, it seems they are trying to make a big deal that legacy knocked off batman from #1. I agree they probably will do another sequel but do you think they'll try to get Paul & Matt back? And what would that mean for gilroy.

    Matts suppose to be in palm springs filming for Gia's bday so I can see them doing an early party. But how do the paps get this info?
