The number of properties referred to in the title of Ramin Bahrani’s fifth feature may have a literal narrative significance, but it must also refer to the population percentage routinely branded as the victims of Occupy-era economic downturn. The perils of illegally gained One Percent privilege make for engrossing, high-stakes viewing in “99 Homes,” which sees Andrew Garfield’s blue-collared Florida everyman enter a Faustian pact with Michael Shannon’s white-blazered real-estate shark. Following the lead of 2012’s underrated “At Any Price” in matching the socially conscious topicality of Bahrani’s early films to the demands of broader-brush melodrama, this dynamically acted, unapologetically contrived pic reps the filmmaker’s best chance to date of connecting with a wider audience — one likely to share the helmer’s bristling anger over corruptly maintained class divides in modern-day America.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are officially married! Angelina's team confirmed to Popsugar that the two tied the knot in France on Saturday. "On Saturday 23rd August 2014, in the presence of family and friends, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were married in a small chapel in Chateau Miraval in France. It was a non-denominational civil ceremony. It was very much a family affair. All their children took part. Angelina was walked down the aisle by her eldest sons Maddox and Pax. Zahara and Vivienne threw petals, gathered from the garden. Shiloh and Knox were the ring bearers. In the days before coming to France, and as citizens of California, Brad and Angelina filled out their paperwork and obtained a marriage license from a local judge, who also traveled to France to conduct the ceremony at Chateau Miraval. They are therefore married under Californian law." The marriage comes two years »

This week Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller ran into The Silence of the Lambs star Jodie Foster at an Emmys after-party, and Tweeted an image that ignited enthusiastic fan speculation that Fuller was courting her to direct some episodes of his hit series.
Foster has taken on less acting roles over the last few years, and has instead turned her attention toward directing. She’s directed films like The Beaver and Home for the Holidays, and recently helmed a few episodes of popular Netflix shows House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. The role of Clarice Starling in The Silence of the Lambs is perhaps her most iconic, and fans would love to see her involved in the newest iteration of the series.
According to Fuller, however, it’s not in the cards. Not only does Foster have a full slate of upcoming projects (including the film Money Monster »

Now that's conservation. Matt Damon, an advocate for clean water worldwide, wasn't going to be wasteful when he stepped up to respond to the ice-bucket challenge. Noting the ongoing drought in California and the global challenges of clean water, Damon went not to a garden hose or faucet but straight to the toilet to douse himself for Als research, explaining that such water in Western nations is typically cleaner than drinking water in developing countries. Though his choice might gross out some, Damon said adequate sanitation is still a problem for 2.4 billion people. "Because I co-founded Water.org, and we »

A quarter-century after “Batman” ushered in the era of Hollywood mega-tentpoles — hollow comicbook pictures manufactured to enthrall teens and hustle merch — a penitent Michael Keaton returns with the comeback of the century, “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance),” a blisteringly hot-blooded, defiantly anti-formulaic look at a has-been movie star’s attempts to resuscitate his career by mounting a vanity project on Broadway. , that will electrify the industry, captivate arthouse and megaplex crowds alike, send awards pundits into orbit and give fresh wings to Keaton’s career.

Keaton was a controversial choice to play the Caped Crusader back in 1989, though the role was the best and worst thing that could have happened to the “Mr. Mom” star, who became world-renowned but never found another role of that stature — and who didn’t get nearly the same boost from working with Tarantino (on »

Matt Damon promotes two causes at the same time.
Matt Damon envisions a day where everyone has access to clean water.
Instead, he took the water from his toilet to make another point and promote another cause that is important to him.

Not a lot to say in the pre-amble to this week’s selection of titles. Should probably apologise for the negativity in advance because a lot of the below is dreck this week across any content provider apart from the occasional bright spot and a new Netflix exclusive. Hopefully you will be able to at least find something worth a look that floats your boat.
This week’s titles of note are as follows:
There really isn’t anymore praise that I can heap on Alfonso Cuaron’s outer space thrill ride that hasn’t been heaped upon it already. Upon repeat viewing what impresses more and more is the technical marvel that this film represents with Gravity being a massive leap forward in the use of virtual sets as well as animation that looks like real people.
There are apparently whole entire scenes here featuring Sandra Bullock and »

What do you suppose Sarah Silverman meant by the bizarre remark in her Emmy acceptance speech Sunday night that we're all made of molecules hurtling through space? Maybe it was an oblique reference to television itself, which is now less a medium than a disembodied signal that we watch at a time and place of our own choosing. On some level, the creators of TV seem to realize that their medium is heading into a future that's even less shackled to the living room screen and the three hours after dinner than ever. And yet, watching last night's 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, one felt a sense of déjà vu, of watching a medium celebrate its ties to its own past. We'd seen many of the honorees picking up trophies before, and maybe we'd even heard the same jokes and patter before.
Seth Meyers could win the Emmy for Best Awards »
