Set during the Civil War, The Free State of Jones tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. Banding together with other small farmers and with the assistance of local slaves, Knight launched an uprising that led Jones County, Mississippi to secede from the Confederacy, creating a Free State of Jones. His marriage to a former slave, Rachel, and his subsequent establishment of a mixed race community was unique in the post-war South. Knight continued his struggle into Reconstruction, distinguishing him as a compelling, if controversial, figure of defiance long beyond the War.

Jared Leto: The Unlikely Triumphs of a Rock-Star Movie Star

27 July 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jared Leto is wearing a preposterous straw hat this morning, a gigantic, not-quite-a-sombrero thing he bought for seven bucks at a corner store. And why not? He's made it this far by committing fully, sometimes crazily, to everything in his life: Method acting, music-making, video directing, tech investing, not to mention the arts of being enigmatic, brainy and really, really good-looking. "I don't dabble," he says. "I dive in, 1,000 percent." So if he needs sun protection for a hike, of course he goes big. In any case, Leto recently turned 44 — "old, »

Tiff Lineup: 5 Reasons to Get Excited About the 2016 Program

26 July 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the middle of summer, when moviegoing options are slim, it’s hard to visualize the sheer scope of films that will screen this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival. No single film commands all the buzz, nor can one lineup, and so the first big announcement — featuring the Galas and Special Presentations — can only begin to provide some insight into the titles worthy of anticipation.

Still, there’s a lot to dig through: Oscar hopefuls looking to gain momentum (“The Birth of a Nation,”  “Loving” and more detailed here); big-budget studio efforts hoping to earn some upscale cred (Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi “Arrival”); veteran filmmakers still pursuing the kind of topics that put them on the map (Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe”).

Beyond these obvious standouts, however, several titles from these programs hold a lot of potential for »

The Ultimate Emmy Underdogs: Can Any One-Nomination Wonders Actually Win?

26 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Adventure Time

Nomination: Outstanding Short-Form Animated Program

Can It Win? Yes!

Why? A perennial nominee in the category, “Adventure Time” finally broke through and won just last year. As the defending champ, it’s definitely got a shot.

In an Ideal World: As much respect as we have for “Robot Chicken,” “Adventure Time” definitely deserves to win again — especially for the submitted episode, “The Hall of Egress.”

The Affair

Nomination: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, Maura Tierney

Can It Win? Not likely.

Why? Tierney was a surprise inclusion, even with a sterling season under her belt. Her best bet relies on the three nominated “Game of Thrones” actors knocking each other out, and we’re guessing HBO won’t let that happen.

In an Ideal World: Tierney would already have an Emmy — either for Season 1 of “The Affair” or “E.R.

Box Office Meltdown: Hollywood Races to Win Back Summer Crowds

26 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From “Jaws” to “Jurassic Park,” few directors can rival Steven Spielberg in the blockbuster arena. But even Spielberg’s magic touch couldn’t save “The BFG” at the box office.

On paper, the film, a $140 million adaptation of a beloved children’s book with a script by “ET” writer Melissa Mathison, had all the makings of a hit. Instead, the movie collapsed at the multiplexes, eking out less than $20 million in its opening weekend.

It’s a stunning fall for one of cinema’s highest-flying talents — a director whose finger was affixed to the pulse of mainstream tastes for decades. Yet “The Bfg” is only the latest high-profile casualty in a summer that’s seen a slew of big-budget domestic bombs. Indeed, red ink has spilled out from such misses as “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” “Warcraft,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, »

“47 Meters Down” also stars Matthew Modine and is directed by Johannes Roberts.  Mark Lane and James Harris produced with Bob and Harvey Weinstein as executive producers.

Matthew McConaughey Drama Gold Enters Oscar Race With Christmas Release

22 July 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Studios are fast beginning to stake out release dates for their Oscar-tipped dramas and Gold, the starry adventure pic that finds Matthew McConaughey on the hunt for Indonesian treasure, is now booked in for release on December 25, 2016.

Written and directed by Stephen Gaghan, the long-gestating drama now finds itself smack bang in the middle of Hollywood’s awards circuit, opening only a few days after David Frankel’s star-studded dramedy, Collateral Beauty.

Whereas Frankel’s feature centers on a New York advertising executive down the dumps, Gold is all about the “epic tale of one man’s pursuit of the American dream,” as McConaughey’s prospector packs in his 9-to-5 to partner with a geologist (Edagar Ramirez) as they go about finding a legendary treasure.

Lifting inspiration from a true story – ever a trait that piques the interest of the Academy – McConaughey and Ramirez’s quest then becomes about safeguarding »

22 July 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Deadline puts it, “Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street.”

Along with McConaughey, Gold co-stars the above-mentioned Ramirez and Bryce Dallas Howard, who will portray Wells’ longtime girlfriend in the movie. Gold also features performances by Corey Stoll, Stacey Keach, Bruce Greenwood, Toby Kebbell, Timothy Simons and more.
