Oscar Isaac Heads To TV For David Simon’s ‘Show Me A Hero’

20 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The ‘O’ in HBO could well stand for Oscar, with the news that in-demand leading man Oscar Isaac has signed up to star in Show Me A Hero, a new miniseries from The Wire creator David Simon.

This Sixties-set piece sees Isaac head an ensemble cast as a New York Mayor, who faces a powder keg of social tension when he’s instructed by authorities to house minorities in white areas. Simon is renowned for tackling major issues on an unflinchingly honest level, so this project should be perfect for his writing talents.

Winona Ryder, Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Bob Balaban, Latanya Richardson-Jackson and Jim Belushi will share the screen with Isaac’s beleaguered official, and the director is Paul Haggis. It looks like the cable channel are pulling out all the stops with this one.

It’ll also provide a strong counterpoint to a forthcoming production featuring Isaac »

This Summer, Everybody Will Get Mad at Oscar Isaac Again in David Simon’s Latest HBO Minseries

20 May 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Oscar Isaac stars in the upcoming HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero as Nicholas Wasicsko, the young mayor of Yonkers, New York. The six-part series is created by David Simon of The Wire and, less thrillingly, Paul Haggis of Crash, and is based on a nonfiction book of the same title by Lisa Belkin, which explored the racial strife that emerged in the late '80s when citizens protested a federally mandated public housing project in the predominantly white part of town. The cast also includes Catherine Keener, Alfred Molina, Winona Ryder, Latanya Richardson-Jackson, Bob Balaban, and Jim Belushi. Lots of angry white people will start yelling on August 16. »

Time Machine: Spielberg and Daughter (with 'Indiana Jones' Actress Capshaw) on Oscars Red Carpet

14 May 2015 2:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

80s Fashion On Film

13 May 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The bright, brilliant fashion of the 1980s has often been captured on film – the over-the-top nature of the clothes lends itself beautifully to cinema, with some of the most iconic outfits of all time captured in this era. To celebrate the home entertainment release of A Most Violent Year, in which Jessica Chastain showcases an incredible array of 1980s-era Armani, we take a look at other films which demonstrate the fashion of the decade.

Submarine (2010)

Richard Ayoade’s comedy drama stars Craig Roberts as 15 year-old Oliver Tate, who has two major ambitions – to lose his virginity to the beautiful Jordana (Yamin Paige), and to save his parents’ rocky relationship (a task made all the more difficult when his mother’s ex-lover reappears in their lives). Costume designer Charlotte Walters does a brilliant job of capturing the wonderfully quirky take on the classic coming-of-age tale, dressing the young cast in a wonderful array of duffle coats, »

Besides Natalie Portman and dancer-choreographer Benjamin Millepied, also in the Black Swan cast are Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, Barbara Hershey, and Vincent Cassel.

HitFix Daily Snap: Courtney Love and other comebacks we need

6 May 2015 11:12 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We told you all the ways Courtney Love is steadily making a comeback, which should fill you with endorphins. I'm not sure her appearance in "Montage of Heck" will thrill fans, but she's such a dynamic, eye-rolling force whose insight is still provocative. We can always use more Courtney. Plus, "Live Through This" is better than "Nevermind." Sorry.  As for other comebacks we need right now, here are ones I'm constantly thinking about: Missy Elliott (of course; she's on a new Ciara track and sounds fantastic, by the way), Dana Carvey, Cheri Oteri, Alanis Morissette, Miranda RichardsonTracy Chapman (She sounded fantastic performing "Stand By Me" on Letterman), Lesley Ann Warren, and Winona Ryder. Fingers crossed for all of you. Here's what else is going on today: "Hot Pursuit" is not the awesome comedy you want it to be. Oh, Reese. Oh, Sofia. What happened to all of the good jokes? »

Time Machine: Oscar-Nominated Director Russell Makes Fashion and Facial Statement

3 May 2015 8:35 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

David O. Russell makes fashion statement on the Oscars' Red Carpet David O. Russell: Fashion statement and Oscar nomination David O. Russell, a Best Director Oscar nominee for the surprisingly successful boxing drama The Fighter, makes both a fashion and a facial statement upon his arrival with guests at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. This was his first Best Director nomination. About five years ago, David O. Russell made headlines thanks to leaked videos showing him having a volcanic, expletive-filled confrontation with Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees – an ambitious all-star comedy that turned out to be much less successful than the bizarre behind-the-scenes video clips. (Check out Paul Rudd in a parody of the 'I Heart Huckabees' blow-up.) Three Kings and I Heart Huckabees alumnus Mark Wahlberg has said that he had to fight with Paramount »

Review: Provocateur Bruce Labruce Loses Some Of His Edge With 'Gerontophilia'

1 May 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Canada's Bruce Labruce has been one of the more notable cinematic provocateurs of the last couple of decades. Starting off in Toronto's queercore scene, he's won acclaim on the festival circuit thanks to the taboo-busting, sexually explicit likes of "The Raspberry Reich," "Otto, Or Up With Dead People," and "L.A. Zombie" (the latter of which was banned from the Melbourne Film Festival). So when his latest film, "Gerontophilia," opens with a blank screen over which we seem to hear a woman nearing orgasm as she recites the names of "female revolutionaries" including Lizzie Borden and Winona Ryder, you'd be forgiven for expecting more of the same envelope pushing.  Read More: Bruce Labruce Making 'Gerontophilia' A Rom-Com About A Teenager Who Develops Feelings For An 80-Year-Old Man But as it turns out, Labruce is having a sly play with the expectations of those who know his previous work, »

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night | Blu-Ray Review

28 April 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Hailed as one of the best new cinematic discoveries in 2014 is director Ana Lily Amirpour with her debut A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, a moody vampire noir that premiered in the Next section at the Sundance Film Festival. Scooping up the Gotham Award’s Bingham Ray Breakthrough Director Award and picking up a pair of Indie Spirit Award nominations (including Best First Feature) and wins at international film fests such as Deauville and Sitges, the film opened theatrically in the fall of 2014 to a barrage of critical acclaim. Credited as the first Iranian Vampire Western, Amirpour is operating with a mash-up of vintage tropes, creating an inspired concoction.

With all its characters speaking Farsi, yet filmed in California and set in the fictional locale of Bad City, there is an enigmatic, surreal aura to Amirpour’s exciting debut. An exploration of loneliness utilizing a set of nighttime creatures »

There’s never been a horror comedy like Tim BurtonBeetlejuice before or since. The film is a nugget of precise mayhem that never seems to get old. Tim Burton and Danny Elfman’s partnership is at or near its peak at this point in their careers, delivering a perfect blend of wildly original visuals and unusually appropriate musical cues, and they get plenty of extra help from the cast; Michael Keaton’s Beetlejuice (Burton originally wanted Sammy Davis Jr for the role! »
