Things that happened on Nicole Kidman's Birthday over the years

20 June 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1893 Lizzie Borden acquitted of the axe murders of her dad and stepmom but everyone still thinks she did it. I still haven't seen that show where Christina Ricci played her. Oops.

1905 Lillian Hellman, playwright and screenwriter is born. 

1909 Swashbuckler supreme Errol Flynn is born

1910 Fanny Brice debuts in "Ziegfeld Follies". The moment was recreated (see photo above from the Academy's archives) and heavily fictionalized of course, in Barbra Streisand's Funny Girl (1968)

1915 Director Terence Young is born. Goes on to kick off the Bond franchise with Dr. No, From Russia With Love, and Thunderball and direct Audrey Hepburn to her last Oscar nomination for Wait Until Dark (1967)

1928 Martin Landau is born. 66 years, 9 months, and 7 days he wins a well-deserved Oscar for Ed Wood (1994) »

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.

Amazon’s Next Pilot Season To Include Adaptations Of ‘The Interestings,’ ‘The Last Tycoon’

26 May 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

As its existing original programs continue to draw viewers, accolades, and awards, Amazon is looking to add additional series to its library. Its next round of competing pilots will include adaptations of Meg Wolitzer’s acclaimed novel The Interestings and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s unfinished work The Last Tycoon, as well as six children’s programs.

The cast of Amazon’s adaptation of The Interestings will include Lauren Ambrose and David Krumholtz, with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire director Mike Newell helming the pilot. The project, based off Wolitzer’s 2013 book, will chronicles several decades in the life of a group of summer camp friends.

The Last Tycoon, which was published as an unfinished rough draft after Fitzgerald’s 1940 death, will feature its own crop of familiar faces, including Kelsey Grammer, who will portray one of the principal characters. The pilot will be Amazon’s second foray into the world of Fitzgerald. »

Great... Train Robbery, Detective, Balls of Fire

22 May 2016 6:01 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1859 Arthur Conan Doyle is born. Probably rolls over in his grave 150 years later when Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes premieres and the great detective becomes a slo mo action hero

1868 The Great Train Robbery happens. It's the subject of a highly influential 10 minute silent film (embedded above) as soon as people figure out what to do with cameras and celluloid in 1903. Cross-cutting, breaking the fourth wall, inventing the western action movie genre? It's all happening right here. 

1907 Laurence Olivier is born. Not yet a "Sir" but already expecting a cooing audience

1945 Paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren are married. They become the fab Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson in The Conjuring (2013) and The Conjuring 2 (2016) 

1958 Jerry Lee Lewis tells the world he's married his 13 year old cousin Myra. Later they look just like Dennis Quaid and Winona Ryder in a movie

‘Fathers and Daughters’ and ‘Mothers and Daughters’ Get New Trailers

8 May 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Considering the amount of films focusing on that special bond between one’s parents, some filmmakers must have complicated relationships. One of two upcoming films explicitly about the subject, the latest from Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds), Fathers and Daughters, looks at the relationship between a Pulitzer Prize winning author as he tries to balance being a widower, mental health issues and raising his 5-year-old daughter. Flash-forward to present day and his daughter is still struggling with her childhood. But her love interest, Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) may be able to help her with that. Muccino is aiming for waterworks again with stars Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried playingthe father-daughter duo. The cast also features Jane Fonda, Diane Kruger, Octavia Spencer, and a new U.S. trailer has landed today.

Not to be confused, on the other side of the spectrum of relationships is Mothers and Daughters. »

Mothers And Daughters – Review

6 May 2016 6:40 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If you are looking for a movie to celebrate with Mom this Mother’s Day, the warm-hearted Mothers And Daughters offers a better option that the Garry Marshall comedy named for the holiday. Both films feature a star-studded ensemble cast but Mothers And Daughters features stories that actually deal with motherhood, unlike Marshall’s unfunny comedy.

While it is the better movie, Mothers And Daughters is not without flaws. It has so many characters that is hard to keep them all straight, much less get to know them, and the dramatic, heart-tugging stories also could have benefited from a little sprinkling of humor.

The film stars Susan Sarandon, Sharon Stone, Christina Ricci, Courteney Cox, Selma Blair and Mira Sorvino, among others, in a series of stories that overlap or connect in various ways. The interlocking stories are generally built around a photographer named Rigby Gray (Selma Blair).

How many movies based around Mother's Day do you need this year? Wait, actually, how many emotionally phony and cloying movies based around Mother's Day do you need this year?

Christina Ricci: 8 Roles That Have Defined Her Career

12 February 2016 10:37 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros

12th February 2016 marks the 36th birthday of Christina Ricci. For the many readers who watched the actress grow up on screen (or, for that matter, grew up with her), this news is doubtless enough to leave one feeling very old.

Yes, it’s been almost 26 years since Ricci first lit up screens as the daughter of Cher and younger sister of Winona Ryder in Mermaids, and the decades since have seen her endure not only as a successful actress, but also as a poster child for generations of Goths, emos and doubtless many other ‘alternative’ sub-factions we might name.

Ricci has arguably never quite achieved the level of mainstream success her many admirers had once expected, and yet in a sense this seems only fitting, given she has built her career on playing figures who do not quite fit in with the mainstream: outsiders, misfits, troubled souls, those »

Killer Content Developing TV Adaptation of Child Refugee Documentary ‘The Displaced’

2 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Killer Content is developing a TV series inspired by the New York Times’ feature “The Displaced,” which tells the stories of three children whose lives have been devastated by war in South Sudan, Syria and the Ukraine.

Killer Content, the parent company of Killer Films, has optioned the TV rights to the Times’ multimedia documentary project that marked the news organization’s first virtual reality film. “The Displaced” was published on Nov. 5, 2015.

Killer is in the process of recruiting a writer to handle the narrative adaptation of the heart-wrenching stories of 9-year-old Chuol, 12-year-old Hana and 11-year-old Oleg. The series is envisioned as picking up where the Times’ film leaves off in depicting the children’s fate as they seek to rebuild their lives. Matt Earl Beesley (“Masters of Sex,” “Lost”) is on board to direct.

Killer is producing “The Displaced” with Two Brass Brads, a non-profit outfit that aims »

Worst Dressed at the SAG Awards 2016: Gabby Hoffman, Kate Mara, Nicole Kidman and More!

30 January 2016 5:37 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The worst dressed list—it's an inevitable part of every red carpet. Naming these celebs can be an uncomfortable job, but someone's got to do it. With that said, it's time to scour the SAG Awards 2016's red carpet for this year's victims. Sometimes all it takes is a tuck in here or a tweak there—take Gabby Hoffman's "two-fer" Rachel Comey dress for example. Is it bronze? Is it silver? We guess that was the point, but it definitely took the elegance level down a few notches. Christina Ricci's lace Christopher Kane number had just a smidge too much going on. It was a toss-up between the odd violet/aqua color combination (considering it's the middle of winter), the »

2016 Sundance Trading Card Series: #8. Camille Rutherford (Jacqueline Argentine)

26 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Eric Lavallee: Name me three of your favorite “2015 discoveries”.

This year I discovered Extras, the series Ricky Gervais did after The Office. It’s so funny. This guy is insane. I want his talent and his brain.

I go the cinema all the time, I think one movie that really impressed me was Foxcatcher. The script is incredible, the ideas, the atmosphere.

I want to buy the dvd. The last thing that comes to mind right now is David Bowie. All his songs. I can’t stop listening to him. Ashes to ashes. Heroes. Woew. He was wonderful. I also can’t stop listening to a Pink Floyd song at the moment, Paintbox. I love the melody. I want it in my next short film but I’ll never have the money for it. It must be so expensive to have Pink Floyd in a movie. Oh, I must say »

Jacob Tremblay is frighteningly good at being a celebrity already. But will he be Oscar nominated?

13 January 2016 11:03 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Recently Scott Feinberg added Jacob Tremblay to his actual predictions for Best Actor nominations. Yes, Best Actor. While Tremblay is obviously the leading man of Room (he co-leads the first half and essentially takes over in the second) he's been campaigned as supporting because he is a kid and that's how kids are campaigned invariably -- remember when they tried to pretend that Keisha Castle Hughes (Whale Rider) was supporting even though her movie had no other leads. Lol. Not so good times.

Tremblay in Best Actor would be a surprise but it maybe isn't a bad call given the seemingly passion-free zone that is the presumed leaders in that particular race. Though I think we'll only see that "promotion" happening if Room is strong enough to nab a Best Picture nomination (I think it is --see the updated Best Picture chart). On the other hand the actors branch, like most organizations, »
