That auteur do it: can big name directors continue to thrive on the small screen?

17 February 2017 4:15 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Spike Lee, Nicolas Winding Refn and the Coens are set to join the ongoing exodus to TV, yet there are lessons to be learned from those who have gone before

In his 2015 film Youth, Italian film-maker Paolo Sorrentino used Harvey Keitel’s character Mick as a mouthpiece, delivering a diatribe about the war between film and TV through the ageing director’s dialogue. “This is cinema, and that’s just television!” he tells his muse. “Television is shit!” Her ominous response? “Television is the future, Mick.”

Smash cut to the beginning of 2017 and Sorrentino’s unveiling The Young Pope, perhaps his most opulent vision to date – in 10 parts on HBO. He’s just one of the many artists making a mass exodus from the cinema to TV, lured by the promises of handsome budgets, greater creative control, and the wider canvas of extended run times. Danish enfant terrible Nicolas Winding Refn »

Though many are holding out for new looks at Warner Bros.’ other 2017 tentpoles (read: Wonder Woman and Justice League), Trailer Track is reporting that a brand new trailer for Guy Ritchie’s medieval actioner King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is in the can.

Pointing to a listing from the BBFC, Tt’s report confirms that the impending promo will run for two minutes and 12 seconds and has been rated 12A, which is essentially the UK equivalent of PG-13. No further details were disclosed, but we expect the trailer to slice and dice its way online in the coming weeks.

Headed up by former Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is a bold and gritty reimagining of the legendary fable. Flanked by top-tier talent such as Jude Law, »

'The Young Pope' Recap: The Miracle Workers

12 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Mincing words is the last thing Pope Pius Xiii would want us to do here, so we'll say it plain: Tonight's episode of The Young Pope is absolutely magnificent. It juggles the climaxes of two major storylines, either of which could command an entire hour on their own, as effortlessly as the Holy Father juggles oranges. Whether it's Cardinal Gutierrez trying to bring down the abusive Archbishop Kurtwell or Pius making peace with the dying Cardinal Spencer, every image feels deeply considered. Every character is full and fleshed out. Not a moment is wasted. »

Television Takes on New Meaning in Trump’s America (Column)

9 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the third episode of “The Young Pope,” the insinuations of the first two episodes become uncomfortable reality: The newly anointed Pius Xii (Jude Law) is an unstable egomaniac. Lenny — the pope’s name, before he ascended to “His Holiness” — spends the opening two episodes obsessing over his first homily to the public, in a push-and-pull with Vatican leadership and the protocols of the divine office. When he does finally deliver his speech, at the end of the second hour, it so provocatively breaks with tradition that it is deeply destabilizing, for both the public and the Vatican’s status quo.

Lenny revels in it. “I’ve always been uncomfortable with wisdom,” he tells a confidant, basking in the triumph of his upset — both in unruffling the world with his speech, and in beating the odds of the papal conclave to become the next pope. “I don’t care about loving my neighbor as myself. I »

Mica Levi to Score Brady Corbet’s ‘Vox Lux’ Starring Rooney Mara

5 February 2017 8:04 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One of our most-anticipated upcoming films has just secured one of the best composers working today. Following Under the Skin and her Oscar-nominated work on Jackie, Mica Levi‘s next project was the small-scale sci-fi feature Marjorie Prime (which we saw at Sundance), and her prolific streak is continuing with Brady Corbet‘s follow-up to The Childhood of a Leader, the ambitious-sounding music drama Vox Lux.

The film follows Rooney Mara as Celeste, “a young woman who survives a traumatic shooting and goes on to become an international pop sensation. The 15-year odyssey, set between 1999 and present day, tracks the cultural evolutions of the 21st century via her unique gaze.” Along with this new plot synopsis, Sierra/Affinity’s sales brochure from Berlinale (sent in by a reader) refutes some misinformation from a trade report last week by confirming shooting begins this month in New York, Los Angeles, Stockholm, and Atlantic. »

Geoffrey Rush Plays Lady Gaga on the Violin in ‘Genius’ Promo, New Series From Brian Grazer & Ron Howard — Watch

3 February 2017 9:21 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In perhaps the most obvious but brilliant casting choice ever, Geoffrey Rush (“The King’s Speech”) will play Albert Einstein in “Genius,” a new series executive-produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard for the National Geographic Channel, which will announce its release date during a just-released Super Bowl spot.

The 45-second teaser is the channel’s first ever standalone Super Bowl spot, and will air directly following Lady Gaga’s performance. It features Rush as Einstein playing “Bad Romance” on the violin, one of her most popular songs. The final seconds of the promo show Rush at his most priceless: Tongue sticking out in imitation of Arthur Sasse’s iconic portrait of the physicist. The likeness is uncanny.

Latest Movies Reviews and Our Personal Thoughts

1 February 2017 10:02 AM, PST | ReelLoop.com | See recent Reel Loop news »

7. Inglourious Basterds – Release Date: June 2009

Quentin Tarantino has the ability to evoke passion from audiences. Love him or call him a hack that repeatably steals the visions of other directors for his gain, this auteur has a style all his own…. In his first movie since 2003/2004’s Kill Bill, Tarantino heads to Germany. Nazi Germany.

Starring Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Samm Levine, and Mike Myers (yes, that Mike Myers), Tarantino’s upcoming World War II movie centers on a group of Jewish-American soldiers who scalp and barbarously slaughter Nazis. If that doesn’t say “fun”, I’m not sure what does.

8. Sherlock Holmes – Release Date: November 20, 2009

Coming off two brilliant performances in Iron Man and Tropic Thunder, Robert Downey Jr. will be Sherlock Holmes next Thanksgiving. From director Guy Ritchie (Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch), the legendary detective and his faithful partner Watson (played by Jude Law) must »

‘Big Little Lies’: Inside Reese Witherspoon’s Twisty Foray Into Television

31 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Blame it on the weather. It was unseasonably cold in Monterey, Calif., when, deep into the 88-day shoot for “Big Little Lies” — after 10 straight days of late nights — the unthinkable happened: The usually unflappable Reese Witherspoon lost her temper. Faced with a difficult emotional scene, she yelled at director Jean-Marc Vallée.

Recalling the incident a few months later over tea at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, the two — who share an easy, effortless camaraderie — laugh at the memory. “I’m so sorry!” she tells him, sheepishly hiding her face in her hands. In his French-accented lilt, Vallée says, “I felt so sad because I knew it wasn’t her.”

But back in that fraught moment on the set, he turned to her and said, “Great! Let’s do it,” pushing her to channel her frustration into her performance. Vallée reports that Witherspoon — perfectly cast as the fast-talking, multitasking mother of two, Madeline »

'The Young Pope' Recap: Menage a Trinity

30 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Send cardinals, nuns, and money – the shit has hit the fan.

Nine months after Pope Pius Xiii announced his intention to rule the Catholic Church with an iron fist (wearing a red velvet glove covered in gold rings, natch), the effects of his fundamentalist fervor are being felt far and wide. August officials are dropping dead in the cafeteria. Renegade mystics are disappearing. Church pews are quite literally collapsing. Police are investigating and the priesthood is being purged. Jimmy crack corn, and the Young Pope doesn't care.

'The Young Pope' Recap: Unholy Roman Emperor

29 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Prepare the Sistine Chapel."

Move over, "Release the Kraken" – there's a new godlike command in town, and its word is law. (Jude Law, to be precise.) With this order, Pope Pius Xiii and The Young Pope alike begin their greatest triumph: an address to the Cardinals delivered in full papal regalia, towering tiara and all. The fact that the Holy Father gets his gear on in a full-fledged dress-up montage soundtracked by Lmfao's "Sexy and I Know It" doesn't undercut the totalitarian coming-out party that follows; if anything, it enhances it. »

Clive Owen Stars as an Enigmatic Bartender in Paolo Sorrentino’s Stylish Short Film ‘Killer in Red’

27 January 2017 11:09 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Paolo Sorrentino has been making buzz with his HBO series “The Young Pope,” a provocative yet satisfyingly rich drama like no other. Now, the filmmaker returns behind the camera in the noir short film “Killer in Red.”

Starting Clive Owen, the project is an extended ad for the alcoholic liqueur Campari, written by Sorrentino and based on an original story by J. Walter Thompson.

Killer in Red” begins with a bartender making a cocktail when Owen, who is always late and “looks like a lot of people,” walks into the empty bar looking for a woman. While he waits for her, the man pours him a drink and tells him a story about his old bartender teacher, Floyd (Owen), who used to craft cocktails explicitly for people.

SAG Awards TV Predictions: Can ‘Game of Thrones’ Beat ‘Stranger Things’?

27 January 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ensemble – Drama Series

Nominees: 

The Crown

Downton Abbey

Game of Thrones

Stranger Things

Westworld

Will Win: “Game of Thrones

Could Win: “Downton Abbey

Should Win: “The Crown

Downton Abbey” has won three of the last four years, including the two most recent competitions. If it wins a fourth, it would tie “E.R.” for the most all-time wins in this category. But we don’t think that’s going to happen. “Game of Thrones,” a five-time nominee, will be battling it out with two newcomers: “The Crown” and “Stranger Things.” While one might think picking the ensemble winner is as simple as totaling up individual winners to find the most popular show, the ensemble winner doesn’t always line up that way. So, considering how loyal these voters are, we’re going with consistency over a fresh pick. But honestly, this one’s a toss-up.

The Flash movie set for “page-one rewrite” by King Arthur writer

26 January 2017 7:19 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

It could be more bad news for the Warner Bros. / DC cinematic universe – Variety is reporting that upcoming superhero movie The Flash is set for a “page-one rewrite” with a new writer hired to start from scratch.

Joby Harold has been hired to pen the new screenplay after writing two upcoming WB projects: this summer’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Charlie Hunnam and Jude Law; and the upcoming reboot of Robin Hood, which is set to star Taron Egerton, Jamie Foxx, Jamie Dornan and Ben Mendelsohn. It seems that after the departure of original director Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) last year, the studios are going to seize the opportunity to shake the film and its story up a little bit with original writer Seth Grahame-Smith’s (The Lego Batman Movie) script now set to be replaced.

Ed O'Neill Tells Hilarious Story of Brad Pitt Run-In, Talks Sofia Vergara's Sneaky Selfies of Him!

25 January 2017 6:42 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ed O'Neill is adorably putting his 17-year-old daughter, Sophia, on blast.

The 70-year-old Modern Family star recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday, and he talks about his recent meeting with Brad Pitt ... and how it led to his eldest daughter cursing at him.

O'Neill attended the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation's fourth annual ROCK4EB! charity event earlier this month to support his manager -- who organizes the event -- where he spent some time with A-listers Pitt and Sting. The actor said his teenage daughter was originally supposed to join him, although she decided at the last minute to spend time with a girlfriend.
