‘The Walk’ Hopes to Follow in Oscar Footsteps of Past Nyff Opening Night Films

25 September 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The 53rd New York Film Festival will begin this Saturday (postponed from today due to Pope Francis‘ visit) with Robert Zemeckis‘ high-wire biopic The Walk opening the event.

The Joseph Gordon-Levitt-starring picture, in which he plays French high-wire artist Philippe Petit, is Zemeckis’ first film since 2012’s Flight which earned two Oscar nominations, but none for Zemeckis himself.

Premiering on opening night in New York has led to Oscar success for films in past years, and with a season that has so far not seen a frontrunner, The Walk is hoping to capitalize.

Here’s a look at films that have premiered on New York Film Festival’s opening night and gone on to receive recognition from the Academy:

Chariots of Fire (1981): The drama about two runners competing in the 1924 Olympic Games opened the 19th Nyff on its way to winning four Academy Awards, »

William Sadler Interview. Photo Credit: Neil Hughes

William Sadler is one of those actors better known for his face than his name. Appearing in over 154 productions, his cv includes parts in Die Hard 2, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey. He’s also a popular face on television, starting out in Tales from the Crypt before starring in the full three-season run of Roswell.

With a career so extensive there was no way we could squeeze all our questions into the standard fifteen minute time slot so instead we sought out Mr Sadler, Bill to his friends, and took him out to dinner. Over the course of our meal we delved into pretty much everything he has ever done, finding out everything from how he found directing, to what it’s like to fight Bruce Willis and, of course, whether the Grim Reaper »

HBO Renews Comedy Series "The Brink"

22 July 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

HBO has ordered a second season of the Jack Black/Tim Robbins dark political comedy series "The Brink" a month after the show made its debut.

The show centers on a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men: Walter Larson, U.S. Secretary of State (Robbins); Alex Talbot, a lowly Foreign Service officer (Black); and Zeke Tilson, an ace Navy fighter pilot (Pablo Schreiber). These three compromised souls must save the planet from World War III.

The half-hour show premiered alongside the Dwayne Johnson-led "Ballers" in late June. While "Ballers" has been a big success, "The Brink" has had a more muted reaction from both critics and audiences.

HBO Renews The Brink For Season 2

22 July 2015 6:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The world will continue to teeter on The Brink for a while longer – HBO has handed out a second season order to the freshman political comedy, which was created by Roberto and Kim Benabib.

Jack Black, Tim Robbins and Pablo Schreiber topline the show, about how a geopolitical crisis affects three different men – a lowly Foreign Service officer (Black), the U.S. Secretary of State (Robbins) and a loose-cannon fighter pilot (Schreiber). Maribeth Monroe, Carla Gugino, Esai Morales, Geoff Pierson, Aasif Mandvi and Eric Ladin all co-star.

In its first season, The Brink was an imperfect but nonetheless watchable comedy that seemed to fall a little short of its potential, focusing on broad raunchy humor as opposed to legitimately toothy political satire. I wrote in my three-star review:

That the threat of nuclear Armageddon only accelerates the volume of dick jokes in The Brink’s war room is at one »
