Hollywood’s UK Community Debates Brexit: Should They Stay Or Should They Go?

21 June 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Britain doesn’t have to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, but our friends across the pond are nevertheless faced with a hugely significant political decision of their own. Thursday’s vote on Brexit — the colloquial name given to the United Kingdom’s upcoming vote on whether or not to remain in the European Union — is a divisive issue, of course, with the husband of slain MP Jo Cox saying that the 41-year-old politician was murdered because of her strong political beliefs. The Economist currently tracks the polls at 44 percent in favor of remaining (or “bremaining”), 43 percent hoping to leave (“brexit”) and 11 percent undecided.

Movie Review: Genius

21 June 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The film Genius was not genius for me. It contained a wonderful cast and had enormous potential, but fell flat completely. I’m getting drowsy just thinking back on it. However, keep in mind that reviewing film is subjective. I did not enjoy Genius, which by no means infers that someone else might not enjoy it. So, in fairness, let me expound on what you can expect and you can make your own decision.

This story is concerned with the relationship between novelist Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law) and editor Max Perkins (Colin Firth), noteworthy for his publishing the works of Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. The film begins with Wolfe waiting to see if his manuscript will be accepted for publication by Scribner’s Sons Publishing. Thomas, an eccentric over-expressive writer, fully believes he will be rejected as he has been time and time again. To his surprise, Perkins »

Finding Treasure (with Pixar's Dory)

19 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

It will surprise you less than Dory, that she's the new queen of the box office. Finding Dory, the sequel to Pixar's most beloved non-Toy based title with mainstream audiences (not with us though - we're Wall•E / Incredibles people round these parts), broke records when it swam into theaters Thursday night. The bankability of a little Hart (Kevin) and a Big Johnson (Dwayne "The Rock") made an impact in second position, as well, though it's worth noting that pairing them didn't remotely result in twice their usual opening weekend grosses (these are fairly typical for either of them. Maybe their fanbases are too similar?) Between those two movies requiring nearly 8,000 screens between them it was a rough weekend for other movies with most big and small releases losing a ton of movie houses (yes even Love and Friendship and The Lobster which both had strong momentum until they lost theaters. »

Arthouse Audit: ‘Tickled’ Leads Long List of Modest Openers

19 June 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s only June and it already feels like the dog days of summer. No breakouts. A slew of niche titles, including several documentaries. This week’s standout is Sundance doc hit “Tickled” (Magnolia), which is showing some potential.

This week’s range of titles is wide and diverse. Some boast high festival and/or review pedigrees, and many come from distributors who aren’t reporting numbers (we offer estimates; “Parched,” an Indian indie from Wolfe Releasing and “2016 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour” remained elusive).

Meantime, “Love & Friendship” (Roadside Attractions) and “The Lobster” (A24) continue to thrive ahead of other recent releases and “Maggie’s Plan” (Sony Pictures Classics) keeps going, along with doc standout “Weiner” (IFC).

Opening

“Tickled” (Magnolia) – Metacritic: 77; Festivals include: Sundance, San Francisco, Seattle 2016

$24,000 in 2 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $12,000

Genius – Review

17 June 2016 8:29 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sometimes words are just words. Other times a strong voice can bring written words to life. That is the goal of a writer after all. In Genius, Max Perkins (played by Colin Firth) is a man who helps bring these words to life, albeit, sometimes in a more condensed or cohesive form. He’s an editor for Charles Scribner’s Sons in New York in 1929.  Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law) is a boisterous struggling writer when Perkins barges into Perkins’ office with the hope to be the next classic writer published by the company, following in the footsteps of Hemingway and Fitzgerald, respectively. The ups and downs of this creative partnership push both of these men to their limits, as well as that of their wives (Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney).

When reading great works of literature, it’s easy to forget the blood, sweat, and tears that go into such an undertaking. »

Diane Keaton Plays "Who'd You Rather?" on Ellen, Hints She May Have Had a Fling With Leonardo DiCaprio

17 June 2016 6:29 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Diane Keaton made a hilarious appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, casually drinking wine and revealing a few juicy secrets while playing a game of "Who'd You Rather?" In addition to chatting about how Al Pacino was one of her "many lovers" over the years, she also hinted at another romance that will definitely come out of left field. When she was faced with choosing between Leonardo DiCaprio and Jude Law, Diane got visibly embarrassed and said, "I know Leo very well." She then went on to explain that they once worked on a movie together when he was 17 but didn't want to discuss it further. Watch the video above to also see her fangirl over her longtime crush, Justin Bieber. »

Jude Law Stars As The Pontiff In First Teaser For HBO Miniseries The Young Pope

16 June 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jude Law stands as the first American pontiff in today’s new trailer for The Young PopePaolo Sorrentino’s eight-part miniseries that is set for a premiere on HBO at some stage later this year.

Pulling together creative talent from Italy, America, Spain, England and France, HBO’s religious drama is nothing short of an international affair, and given that The Young Pope heralds Sorrentino’s return to English-language territory in light of his well-deserved Oscar win for The Great Beauty, we’re definitely excited to see what he has in store for us.

Earning the backing of Sky and Canal Plus, it’s the filmmaker’s first English since last year’s comedy-drama Youth, and here’s how HBO pitches The Young Pope: “From Paolo Sorrentino, director of the Academy Award®-winning ‘The Great Beauty,’ ‘The Young Pope’ tells the controversial story of the beginning of Pius Xiii’s pontificate. The eight-episode series stars Jude Law as the complex and conflicted Pius Xiii, the first American pope.”

Also starring Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando, Scott Shepherd, Cécile de France, Javier Cámara, Ludivine Sagnier, Toni Bertorelli, and James Cromwell, look for the white smoke to come billowing out of the HBO chimneys when The Young Pope premieres later this year. »

Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Kristin Scott Thomas to Star in Sally Potter’s ‘The Party’

15 June 2016 8:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Clarkson, Bruno Ganz, Kristin Scott Thomas, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Timothy Spall and Cherry Jones are to star in Sally Potter’s film “The Party,” which has just started its 14-day shoot in London.

Set in a house in contemporary London, the film is “a comedy wrapped around a tragedy,” according to Potter’s production company Adventure Pictures. “It starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor.”

The film is produced by Christopher Sheppard for Adventure Pictures and Kurban Kassam (“20,000 Days on Earth,” “Ginger & Rosa”), and is financed by Robert Halmi Jr. and Jim Reeve’s Great Point Media.

The production reunites many of Potter’s long-standing collaborators, including cinematographer Alexey Rodionov (“Yes,” “Orlando”), production designer Carlos Conti (“The Motorcycle Diaries,” “The Kite Runner”), sound guru Jean-Paul Mugel (“Hidden,” “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”), and editor Anders Refn (“Anti-Christ,” “Breaking the Waves,” “Ginger & Rosa”).

It is the eighth feature film to be directed by Potter, who is best known for “Orlando,” the 1992 adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel. The film, which starred Tilda Swinton, received two Academy Award nominations. Her other films include the BAFTA-nominated “The Tango Lesson” (1996); “Yes” (2004), with Joan Allen, Simon Abkarian, and Sam Neill; “The Man Who Cried” (2000), starring Christina Ricci, Johnny Depp, Cate Blanchett and John Turturro; “Rage” (2009), with Jude Law, Judi Dench and Steve Buscemi; and “Ginger & Rosa” (2012), starring Elle Fanning and Alice Englert.

With great power comes great drama. Generally speaking, it’s always been the corridors of political power (“House Of Cards,” “The West Wing,” etc.) that have been fertile ground for storytellers looking to explore the collision of ambition, humanity and ruthlessness, but there hasn’t been a show, at least in recent memory, that does the same for […]
