What Movies Are Critics Most Excited to See at Cannes 2017? — Critics Survey

17 April 2017 12:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

The lineup for Cannes 2017 has finally been announced, and it’s a doozy. From the inevitable return of Michael Haneke to the shocking inclusion of television (albeit television from celebrated Cannes alumni David Lynch and Jane Campion), the 70th edition of the world’s most prestigious film festival promises to have something for everyone.

We asked our panel of critics to name the Cannes premiere they’re most excited to see, and their answers were unsurprisingly all over the map.

2017 Tribeca Film Festival: 23 Can't-Miss Movie Premieres, Talks and Gala Events

17 April 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Every year, celebrities, filmmakers, journalists and movie fans flock to the Tribeca neighborhood in lower Manhattan for the Tribeca Film Festival, an illustrious celebration of film and television that features some of the most exciting projects and panel discussions of any media festival in the country.

Founded by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, shortly after the attacks of 9/11, the festival has helped revitalize the city and remind both filmmakers and fans alike of New York City’s valued place in film and TV while becoming a welcoming community for voices and perspectives from all over the world. “It’s also a fabric of our city. So whether or not it’s a film from Israel or Palestine or something for kids, our festival was about community and it still is,” Rosenthal tells Et. “It’s about bringing community together.” 

The 2017 festival, which runs April 19-30, continues to expand beyond film and TV with »

The Truth About Zardoz, Plus Nine Other Things I Learned At Tcmff 2017

15 April 2017 12:49 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Just back from the 2017 TCM Classic Movie Festival with a few thoughts and thoughts about thoughts. I certainly held my reservations about this year’s edition, and though I ultimately ended up tiring early of flitting about from theater to theater like a mouse in a movie maze (it happens to even the most fanatically devoted of us on occasion, or so I’m told), there were, as always, several things I learned by attending Tcmff 2017 as well.

1) TCM Staffers Are Unfailingly Polite And Helpful

Thankfully I wasn’t witness, as I have been in past years, to any pass holders acting like spoiled children because they had to wait in a long queue or, heaven forbid, because they somehow didn’t get in to one of their preferred screenings. Part of what makes the Tcmff experience as pleasant as it often is can be credited to the tireless work »

The official lineup for the 70th Cannes Film Festival, which will run from May 18–28, was announced April 13. While a few more screenings will undoubtably be added as we creep nearer to the festival, the selections announced feature a lot worth getting excited over — including, for the first time, two television shows (Twin Peaks and Top of the Lake) and a virtual reality film (Carne y Arena). Also, considering that The Killing of a Sacred Deer and The Beguiled are both in the main competition, there is, assuming equal probability, an 11.1% chance that a film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell will take home the top prize.

The Potential Oscar Contenders of Cannes 2017: A Rundown

13 April 2017 1:42 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The 2017 Cannes official selection is a mix of brainy competition auteurs, red-carpet star power, and the rarest breed — a handful of players who could return to North America as Oscar contenders.

Nicole Kidman will be stuffing her trunks with evening gowns, as she will need to walk the Palais steps at least four times: twice with Colin Farrell, for Cannes favorite Sofia Coppola‘s Civil War potboiler “The Beguiled” (Focus Features) and Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” (A24), both in Competition, and again for John Cameron Mitchell‘s midnighter “How to Talk with Girls at Parties” (A24) and a preview of Jane Campion‘s returning Sundance Channel series, “Top of the Lake: China Girl.” How the three films play in Cannes will determine if the Oscar perennial returns for another go-round.

Isabelle Huppert won the Cesar and was close — we think — to winning the Oscar for “Elle. »

Netflix picks up Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories

12 April 2017 10:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has added to its upcoming slate of movies by snapping up the rights to The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), the new film from director Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, Mistress America), which stars Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel, Grace Van Patten and Emma Thompson.

Noah Baumbach is an important voice in American filmmaking and his films are always highly anticipated around the world. Noah is among the filmmakers that we were eager to work with, and I know that film enthusiasts everywhere will be as moved by this film as we were,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. “We’re thrilled to be the avenue by which global audiences will be able to see the film.”

Noah Baumbach Heads to Netflix

11 April 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Consider me outright clamoring for whatever Noah Baumbach does next, even if Mistress America (and for that matter his DePalma doc) wasn't as long ago as it feels like. Time is a slow beast when you're waiting on beloved writer/directors. His next, The Meyerowitz Stories, is his most star-studded and it just got picked up by Netflix.

The film stars Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson (all hippied out to the left), Ben Stiller, and now Netflix mainstay Adam Sandler as a family reuniting in New York to celebrate their artist father. Baumbach's work has been an evolving array of comic tones, so where on his spectrum it will land from bitter pill Margot at the Wedding to the farce of Mistress America is anyone's guess. If nothing else, this could be his largest platform yet - especially if this noteworthy cast is also met with Baumbach's less misanthropic side. »

'Wag the Dog' Director Barry Levinson Sees Those Trump-Era Comparisons (Q&A)

11 April 2017 4:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

On Christmas Day, 1997, director Barry Levinson's political satire Wag the Dog hit theaters. The film, which centers on a Washington spin doctor (Robert De Niro) who hires a Hollywood producer (Dustin Hoffman) to fabricate a fake war to draw attention away from the sexual transgressions of the sitting president with one of his young female staffers, was released just one month before then-President Bill Clinton found himself embroiled in a similar scandal with 22-year-old intern Monica Lewinsky and the subsequent bombing of the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Sudan by Clinton's administration.

Newswire: Netflix picks up new Noah Baumbach’s new film, Meyerowitz Stories

11 April 2017 4:35 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ensuring that it doesn’t get left behind in the ”stories about affluent white folks struggling with daddy issues” arms race, Netflix has announced that it’s picking up Noah Baumbach’s latest film for its online streaming library. Baumbach recently finished work on Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), which sees Ben Stiller, Emma Thompson, and Netflix favorite Adam Sandler wrestling with the impact of their father, Dustin Hoffman, on their lives. Meyerowitz Stories is being bandied about as a potential entrant at this year’s Cannes. Given Netflix’s ongoing efforts to get its movies recognized by theaters and award shows, despite their streaming-specific origins, it’ll be a prominent feather in the company’s cap if it does.

Dustin Hoffman returns in The Graduate at Cineplex theatres this month!Dustin Hoffman returns in The Graduate at Cineplex theatres this month!Ingrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine4/11/2017 9:32:00 AMDustin Hoffman’s screen test for The Graduate (1967) was an absolute disaster, which explains how he won the role.

Director Mike Nichols summoned the 30-year-old New York character actor to Hollywood to test for the film’s lead role of Benjamin Braddock, a disillusioned college graduate who is seduced by the older Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft) and then falls in love with her daughter, Elaine (Katherine Ross).

The test called for Hoffman and Ross to perform in a love scene, and Hoffman was horrible; painfully self-conscious and unable to shake the thought that a woman as beautiful as Ross would never fall for a guy like him. That’s when Nichols knew he was perfect for the part, which lay bare »

Kevin Spacey and Kafka with cats: a closer look at Nine Lives

10 April 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Apr 12, 2017

Kevin Spacey turns into a cat. Christopher Walken. We take a closer look at the Kafka-esque comedy, Nine Lives..

“When Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from troubled dreams, he found himself changed into a monstrous cockroach in his bed.”

See related  Nintendo Famicom Mini: examining Japan's tiny console

So goes the first line in Franz Kafka’s classic short story, Metamorphosis - a tiny, existential drama subject to all kinds of interpretations since its publication in 1915. Even that famous opening line is open to interpretation, as this Guardian piece points out: did Kafka really mean that poor, unfortunate Gregor woke up as a cockroach, another kind of insect, or something else entirely? The German phrase he uses, “Ungeheuren Ungeziefer” loosely translates to “enormous vermin.” 

Whatever Gregor becomes, it’s something pitiful and helpless; he can no longer work, and gradually, he’s shunned by his own family. »

Random Roles: Billy Crudup won’t tell us which movie he got fired from

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

The actor: Billy Crudup’s considerable résumé is filled with prestige projects. This illustrious tradition began when he started out two decades ago in Barry Levinson’s Sleepers, starring alongside Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro, and he hasn’t slowed down since. Along the way he’s taken on iconic roles like Almost Famous’ Russell, Watchmen’s Dr. Manhattan, and William in Big Fish. You’ve also heard his melodious voice announce MasterCard punchline “priceless” for several years. At this point in his career, Crudup seems able to pick and choose his prestige projects, racking up appearances in a number of recent Oscar nominees. His latest movie, 1 Mile To You, comes out on video-on-demand April 7 ...
