4 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The female-led spin-off of the Ocean’s Eleven movies is a fairly exclusive club (well, except for all the dudes and Kardashians they’ve let in).

You’re not going to be able to turn around over the next few months without running into Matt Damon. The actor leads both George Clooney‘s noirish romp “Suburbicon,” and Alexander Payne‘s ambitious “Downsizing.” And if you think the actor is returning to punching in the throat as Jason Bourne, guess again, though he is going for the groin….

Matt Damon to Star in, Produce Quack Doctor Film 'Charlatan'

19 September 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Matt Damon has optioned the book Charlatan: America’s Most Dangerous Huckster, the Man Who Pursued Him, and the Age of Flimflam and is developing it as a potential starring vehicle, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Damon, who stars in two fall films with awards-season hopes — George Clooney's Suburbicon and Alexander Payne's Downsizing — would play John R. Brinkley, a con man from Kansas who set up a medical practice in the 1920s and introduced an outlandish surgical method using goat glands to reverse impotence in local farmers. He quickly turned into America’s richest and most famous surgeon.

George Clooney Made Ties from Too-Long Suit Pants as a Struggling Actor: 'I'd Hem Them Up With a Stapler'

15 September 2017 12:57 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Before George Clooney was an A-list, Academy Award-winning actor with Armani on call to make him a tux on demand, the 56-year-old new dad to twins Alexander and Ella was just a struggling actor trying to make ends meet by selling insurance door-to-door.

At a certain point in the Kentucky-born actor’s life, Clooney was so broke, he couldn’t even afford to buy a tie. So the star decided to take things into his own crafty hands and make his own. The actor, who’s currently at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote the new movie he’s directing, »

Steve Bannon Is Returning to Hollywood to Make Westerns — Report

15 September 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Steve Bannon, known as Stephen K. Bannon on his IMDb page, is reportedly making plans to return to his first love: Making movies. According to Page Six, Bannon has been taking meetings with “movie companies,” specifically with an eye toward making Westerns. Bannon’s rise to fame is as strange and ominous as Donald Trump’s; he landed at Breitbart news after producing a slew of right-wing political documentaries, causing Andrew Breitbart to call him the Leni Reifenstahl of the Tea Party movement. In a cruel twist of fate, he also earns ‘Seinfeld’ royalties.

Now, the architect of the alt-right movement is hoping to parlay his skills rallying white supremacists into Hollywood success once again. “The Western thing actually makes sense when you consider his strategy with Trump,” once source, told Page Six. “Maybe [Bannon] thinks there’s an untapped market for movies about John Wayne-style alpha males.”

Tiff 2017: Here’s the Winners and Losers of the Festival

15 September 2017 9:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At 255 titles, the Toronto International Film Festival’s smorgasbord is 20 percent smaller than last year — and still overwhelming. A number of filmmakers took creative risks that paid off with exuberant praise, from Darren Aronofsky’s outrageous “mother!” to Guillermo del Toro’s inimitable “The Shape of Water,” but many others found themselves in the doghouse, or worse, utterly ignored.

Buyers were unhappy that there wasn’t much to choose from at this sellers’ market, because many distributors cherry-picked the more promising titles ahead of time — which is its own risk, as when The Orchard’s La riot drama “Kings” didn’t meet high expectations.

Here’s how the festival shook out.

Why the Toronto Film Festival Felt Smaller Than Ever

15 September 2017 8:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For evidence that climate change is real, look no further than the Toronto International Film Festival. The official fall kickoff to awards season is usually accompanied by hot sales that burn through the streets of Canada’s largest city. In 2017, the market wasn’t just frosty. It was more like an arctic blizzard had suddenly swept through Roy Thomson Hall.

This year’s Toronto saw the premieres of a staggering 255 features, with endless red carpets and after-parties in crowded bars and noisy restaurants. Despite all the glamour emitted by the likes of George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, and Jennifer Lawrence, the festival felt much smaller.

Many buyers here bitterly complained that there was nothing worth spending money on, while too many movies unfurled to little fanfare. This has become a recurring trend in the last three or four years at Toronto (does anybody remember the sad fate of the Michael Moore documentary “Where to Invade Next”?), but the »

Interview: Executive Producer Adi Shankar on the Intense Animation & Bold Storytelling of Netflix’s Castlevania Series

14 September 2017 2:58 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

This past summer was a memorable one for fans of Konami's video game franchise Castlevania. In addition to the release of a new four-episode animated series adaptation of the video games on Netflix, the streaming service also renewed the series for an eight-episode second season, and viewers of the show were treated to a story that took an R-rated approach to violence and a bold path with its storytelling. One of the creative forces behind the new series is Adi Shankar (executive producer of films such as Dredd and The Grey) and I had the opportunity to talk with the filmmaker about collaborating with Sam Deats and Warren Ellis, the freedom of working with Netflix, and much more.

Thanks so much for taking some time to talk with me and congratulations on Castlevania. I wrapped up watching the first season and I absolutely loved it.

Adi Shankar: Amazing, amazing. »

Film Review: Suburbicon: A heavy-handed experiment with tragic irony [Tiff 2017]

Suburbicon Film Review Suburbicon (2017) Film Review from the 42nd Annual Toronto International Film Festival, a movie directed by George Clooney, starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, and Noah Jupe. Clooney delivers a tone deaf interpretation of a Coen brothers’ hyper-ironic screenplay about murder and mayhem, and racism, in 1959 suburbia. Suburbicon was a great concept, [...]

Toronto International Film Festival Review – Suburbicon (2017)

14 September 2017 1:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suburbicon, 2017.

Directed by George Clooney.

Starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, and Oscar Isaac.

Synopsis:

Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns…the perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices. This is Suburbicon.

George Clooney and Matt Damon re-team in the dark comedy Suburbicon, directed by Clooney and written by The Coen Brothers, about a family living in suburban America with some dark secrets. The film follows the typical Coen Brothers format, but misses the mark due to some storytelling choices and unmemorable performances from some of its leads.
