The Telluride Film Festival launched some Oscar contenders

1 hour ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Happy Labor Day everyone, and welcome to September as well. Over the past week or so, the Telluride Film Festival has unspooled a number of Academy Award contenders, in effect launching the Oscar race ahead of the start of the New York Film Festival as well as Toronto Film Festival. Those other two festivals will screen titles over the months of September and October, but with Telluride in the books, it’s one fest that we can analyze a bit to see what’s what. With their unique format (they never announce what films are playing in advance, so you never know what will screen), Telluride is always an X factor, but this year especially they’ve had no shortage of Oscar hopeful movies in their lineup. Some flicks upped their stock, while some need to be downgraded, but overall it’s a fest well worth discussing. First off, here »

Steven Spielberg encouraged Tommy Lee Jones during the making of 'The Homesman'

9 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — I didn't quite know what to say or think about Tommy Lee Jones' "The Homesman" after catching up with it Sunday afternoon, but I was pretty sure I loved it. Gorgeously shot by Rodrigo Prieto, lovingly scored by Marco Beltrami, enigmatically captured by Jones, the film almost becomes a series of vignettes at some point, dealing in western iconography in ways both familiar and foreign, truly a piece of work from the same voice that gave us "The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada." It's actress Hilary Swank who is getting the tribute here this year but I think maybe Jones could have dealt with that sort of coronation. He's expert behind the camera and in front of it, he carves out a truly memorable, off-kilter character I'd love to revisit in another story. But I'll just leave it at that for now. It's a strange film that settled, »

Telluride: Hilary Swank Enters the Oscar Race With the Western Classic 'The Homesman'

12 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hilary Swank proved for the second time in her career that she can go up against one of the grand old masters of the screen and more than hold her own in The Homesman, a period piece from Roadside Attractions that debuted Aug. 31 in Telluride.  Last time she did this, it was opposite Clint Eastwood in Million Dollar Baby, and the movie won both of them Oscars (Swank for lead actress, Eastwood for picture and director). This time it’s opposite Tommy Lee Jones, who — like Eastwood — directed while also co-starring. The stars had some surprising

2014 Telluride Film Festival Line-Up Includes Plenty of Cannes, Toronto and Venice Crossover

28 August 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are a lot of familiar faces in the just announced 2014 Telluride Film Festival line-up, but as much as this fest is about what's officially announced, it's also about what's not mentioned as secret screenings are pretty much what makes Telluride such a buzzy fest, though this year a little bit of snow may also be part of the conversation. As for the titles announced so far you have Venice early standout Birdman, Jon Stewart's Rosewater, The Imitation Game and Jean-Marc Vallee's Wild along with a Ton of Cannes crossover pics including Foxcatcher, The Homesman, Leviathan, Mommy, Mr. Turner, Red Army, Wild Tales and Two Days, One Night. There is plenty of Toronto crossover with many of this pics as well, which also includes Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes, the new Martin Scorsese documentary The 50 Year Argument, Joshua Oppenheimer's The Look of Silence and Ethan Hawke's Seymour among others. »

Oscar Contenders In Lineup As Telluride Film Festival Announces Schedule

28 August 2014 7:16 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The 41st Telluride Film Festival, which has become a harbinger of heavyweight Oscar contenders over the past few years, has announced its schedule for the fest – which opens Friday and runs through Labor Day — just as a charter planeload of industry festgoers departs Lax. Despite a well-publicized battle with the upcoming Toronto Film Festival over Oscar-buzzed movies, Telluride honchos Tom Luddy, Gary Meyer and Julie Huntsinger have some pretty impressive contenders in the mix. Of course, film-freak paradise that it is,  Telluride is not all about hot awards titles but a mix of programming that always whets the appetite of movie lovers who flock here each Labor Day weekend.

That said, Oscar watchers will be eagerly lining up for Fox Searchlight and New Regency’s Birdman, which is coming directly from its opening-night slot at the Venice Film Festival where it received rapturous reviews — not only for star Michael Keaton »

'Birdman,' 'Wild,' 'Imitation Game' and an 'Apocalypse Now' treat set for 41st Telluride

28 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — With all the reindeer games going on in the fall festival world, a lot of the drama and mystery surrounding Telluride's perennially on-the-lowdown program began to seep out like a steadily deflating balloon this year. Toronto, Venice and New York notations of "World Premiere," "Canada Premiere," "New York Premiere" or "International Premiere" and the like made it all rather obvious which films were heading to the San Juans for the 41st edition of the tiny mining village's cinephile gathering, and which were not. But the fact is, if you're in it just for the surprises — or certainly, for the awards-baiting heavies — you're never going to be fully satisfied by the Telluride experience. That having been said, this year's program might just be the most exciting one in my six years of attending. Starting with all of the stuff we were expecting, indeed, Cannes players "Foxcatcher," "Mr. Turner" and "Leviathan »

Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Never Say Die: 21 highlights from Josh Brolin's terrific,'Goonies'-heavy Reddit Ama

Though he was ostensibly promoting his role in the upcoming Robert Rodriguez sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," Josh Brolin's Reddit Ama on Thursday was delightfully all over the map, with topics ranging from "The Goonies" ("I've never had more fun on a movie") to his disastrous "Thrashin'" audition ("an 18 wheeler ran over it") to the insanity of working with Paul Thomas Anderson ("It felt like swimming in a Ralph Steadman drawing") to that horrible moment on the set of "American Gangster" with Russell Crowe ("I went back to my trailer waiting to be fired"). But mostly he talked about "The Goonies," and god love him for it. Check out the 21 best moments from the spirited, candid and wildly entertaining Q&A below. 1.
