26 June 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

To mark the release of A Bigger Splash on 27th June, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on Blu-ray.

A decadent summer gathering turns sour in the sparkling A Bigger Splash, while a vital documentary gives refugees a voice

If the British summer would just play ball, the DVD release of A Bigger Splash (Studiocanal, 15) would be perfectly timed. Luca Guadagnino’s slinky, shimmery indulgence is the cinematic equivalent of a beach read: it slips by in a pleasurable daze, our concentration divided between the words and the sunlight on the screen. The David Hockney allusion in the title is no accident. The setting of this lackadaisical daylight noir may be the Sicilian island of Pantelleria rather than Beverly Hills, but this is a sparkling lifestyle study, fascinated with the surface luxuries – the pools, the meals, the linen kaftans – of the rich and famous.

As the lazily decadent summer plans of Tilda Swinton’s mute rock star and her surrounding party curdle in the heat, Guadagnino’s gaze isn’t critical, »

22 Deserving Oscar Contenders From the First Half of 2016

24 June 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Year after year film releases from January through June get the short end of the stick during the Oscar season, when latter-year entries — many of them fresh off exposure-boosting festival circuits — drown everything out.

There are exceptions, of course, but mostly, without the help of critical kudos and other precursor awards that deign to have long memories, quality work is frequently left in the also-ran pile. In an effort to keep the spotlight trained on deserving contenders, here is a long list of players we’d like to see remembered by the Academy later this year.

[Note: This list only includes films theatrically released to the public through the year’s midway point. Not all festival entries are eligible.]

Best Picture: “Weiner

Rather than save it for the documentary feature category, why not just call one of the year’s best movies exactly what it is? This Sundance hit is somehow the perfect movie for now: Flawed heroes, media obsession with titillation yielding obfuscation of substance — it’s brilliantly in tune with the zeitgeist. »

Can fantasy films escape Lord Of The Rings' shadow?

21 June 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




The world of J.R.R. Tolkien, brought to the screen by Peter Jackson, continues to cast a shadow over fantasy cinema...

One realm to rule them all. One realm to find them, one realm to bring them all and in the darkness bind them, in the land of Middle-earth where the shadows lie.

Now, far be it from me to ever describe Middle-earth as a dark shadow over anything, but for everyone else trying to make a mega-hit fantasy film, the very thought of competing with Peter Jackson’s adaptations of The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit must seem the equivalent of toppling literal evil on Earth.

It seems that any time a big-budget fantasy flick is released, they get sneered at as generic, lacking the richness of detail or story compared to Lord Of The Rings.

But if this sounds like I’m suggesting there »

'Richard III': Theater Review

17 June 2016 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's a shame the Almeida Theatre Company's solid, effective and sinister production of Richard III is slated to finish its run Aug. 6 since, with its emphasis on bones, skulls and ghosts, it would make a perfect seasonal choice for Halloween. Featuring Ralph Fiennes in the title role and Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Margaret (the two last appeared together in Fiennes' own contemporary film adaptation of Coriolanus), director Rupert Goold's production borrows more than a little of its vernacular from horror films and the theater of shock. He seldom gets his own hands dirty, but this Richard is a psychopath by

Kieslowski, ‘Cat People,’ and the Coen Brothers Lead The Criterion Collection’s September Line-Up

16 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

September tends to be the time of year that movie studios start busting out the big guns, and 2016 finds the Criterion Collection following suit, as the boutique home video label will be releasing one of the most significant cinematic landmarks on which they’ve yet to put their stamp.

Krzysztof Kieślowski’s mammoth “Dekalog” makes the company’s September lineup something of a bumper crop in and of itself, but — lucky for us — it’ll be accompanied by an essential Kenji Mizoguchi classic, two ample doses of Jacqueline Susann-inspired campiness, some old school Coen brothers and much more. Check out the full release slate below, listed in rough order of our excitement for each title.

1.) “Dekalog” (dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski, 1988), Spine #837

This would be at the very top of the list regardless of what else Criterion is releasing in September. One of the greatest achievements in all of film (though »

The Furniture: Merrily We Dance in Hail Caesar!

13 June 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture" is our weekly series on Production Design. Here's Daniel Walber...

Hobie Doyle is out of his element. Tossed from the great outdoors into the drawing room by the head of the studio, Alden Ehrenreich’s cowboy careens into words with hilarious indelicacy. It might be the single funniest scene in the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar!, now available on DVD and Blu-Ray, or at least a close second place to the hysterical clerical debate. It also has one of the most interesting sets, if not the flashiest.

The production in question is "Merrily We Dance," a genteel comedy by the director Laurence Laurentz (Ralph Fiennes). A hodge-podge of George Cukor and Noel Coward, he stands in for the not-quite-closeted geniuses of the era. The film, which seems to fall somewhere between Private Lives and Dinner at Eight, sends a jilted lover to an upscale party from which the hostess has absconded to Lake Onondaga »

Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins’ new thriller Misconduct grosses just £97 at UK box office

8 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After it received a chilly reception from critics last week, the new thriller Misconduct has had one of the worst openings ever at the UK box office, grossing less than £100. Yes, £100.

The film, directed by Shintaro Shimosawa, stars Academy Award winners Al Pacino (Heat) and Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World) and was made for roughly $11 million. However, after being released in UK cinemas last Friday on just five screens, the film has so far grossed just £97 for an average of just £19.40 per location.

Misconduct joins the ranks of some of the UK’s lowest grossing films which includes last year’s Momentum, which despite featuring Morgan Freeman, grossed just £46 from 10 screens. Uma Thurman-starrer Motherhood earned just £88 in 2009, while The Chumscrubber, which starred Ralph Fiennes and Jamie Bell, ended with just £36.

Misconduct stars Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as a lawyer “caught up in a nefarious plot involving kidnap and murder »

Hail, Caesar! Preview Visits George Clooney in Old Hollywood | Exclusive

8 June 2016 12:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Coen Brothers returned to the big screen for the first time in three years back in February with their new period piece Hail, Caesar!, which is set in 1950s Hollywood. In case you missed your chance to see it on the big screen, Hail, Caesar! debuted on Digital HD last month and on Blu-ray and DVD earlier this week. If you haven't had a chance to pick up this comedy quite yet, we have an exclusive preview featuring stars George Clooney and Josh Brolin.

In Universal Studios Home Entertainment's Hail, Caesar, George Clooney fittingly plays the biggest movie star in the world, who goes missing while shooting his new movie. We learn in this preview that this movie-in-a-movie is very similar to Ben-Hur, with George Clooney himself revealing that they used actual backdrops from the real Ben-Hur as a part of this production. He also talks about his unique costume, »

Josh Brolin Was 'Blown Away' by 'Avengers: Infinity War' Story

7 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

No matter the era, Josh Brolin has a pretty firm handle on Hollywood.

If you missed brothers Joel and Ethan Coen's most recent movie, "Hail, Caesar!," you've got a new opportunity to check out the flip-side of "Barton Fink," their poison-pen take on the conflicts between Hollywood and creativity. The film, which features Brolin as a studio fixer -- the squasher of potential star scandals detrimental to box office business -- is, even with its somewhat cynical lens trained on spoiled celebrities with bad judgment, a loopy love letter of sorts to a bygone cinematic era where even the by-any-means-necessary fixer's just doing his best for the image of the system and its stars.

The second in a now-emerging Brolin Acting Dynasty -- his dad, James, paved the way; daughter Eden is following in his footsteps -- Brolin, who brings a distinctive heart and conscience to a role that »

Hail, Caesar! Blu-Ray Review

4 June 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Coen Brothers’ lyrical homage to Classic Hollywood, Hail, Caesar! hits Blu-ray next week. A more optimistic companion piece to the darker, seamier Hollywood of Barton Fink, Hail, Caesar! succeeds more than it fails, delivering an enjoyable and diverting, if somewhat unfocused, paean to a bygone world.

Hail, Caesar! chronicles a day in the life of Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), the head of physical production at Capitol Pictures and a Hollywood fixer who manages everything behind the scenes of a Hollywood dream factory. We follow Eddie as he juggles recalcitrant directors, pregnant starlets, Communist writers and invasive gossip columnists, all while trying to hold onto his love of Hollywood in the midst of a growing studio crisis.

At the center of the loose narrative is the disappearance of Baird Whitlock (George Clooney), leading man and star of Capitol’s latest prestige picture Hail, Caesar!, a thinly veiled Biblical epic that references Ben Hur, »

Tilda Swinton stars a rock-and-roll legend named Marianne, who hiding out on the Italian island of Pantelleria with her younger photographer husband Paul (Matthias Schoenaerts) while her voice heals from recent surgery. The couple’s quiet idyll is interrupted by the sudden arrival of Harry (Ralph Fiennes), Marianne’s former long-time producer and ex-lover, and his newly-discovered daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson). Harry is a non-stop talker and life of the party, determined to bring back the good old rock-n-roll party days and a tsunami of nostalgia.

Ralph Fiennes is the lightning rod at the center of this taut, sexy psychological thriller. The film is directed by Luca Guadagnino, the Italian director best known for I Am Love, the visually lush art-house »
