Ryder, Bernthal, Molina Join HBO's "Hero"

20 August 2014 3:18 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Winona Ryder, Jon Bernthal and Alfred Molina have joined HBO and David Simon's six-hour mini-series "Show Me a Hero" based on Lisa Belkin's non-fiction book.

Set in Yonkers, New York in 1985, the story follows a young mayor (Oscar Isaac) faced with a federal court order that says he must build a small number of low-income housing units into the more affluent, mostly white neighborhoods of his town.

His attempt to do so tears the city apart, paralyzing the entire municipal government and destroying his political future. 

Ryder will portray Vinni Restiano, a Yonkers councilwoman who lost her seat due to her vote, but staged a comeback four years later and won as City Council president.

Bernthal will play Michael H. Sussman, a Harvard-trained lawyer who represented the NAACP when it joined the government’s anti-segregation case against Yonkers.

Molina plays councilman Henry J. 'Hank' Spallone, a former Bronx »

Parks and Recreation scored a second consecutive win for best comedy series in the 2014 EWwys, EW’s annual reader-voted awards for the Emmy-snubbed. But more importantly, after finishing as runner-up in the best actor in a comedy race the last two years, the show’s leading man, Adam Scott, finally earned a golden ewe statue of his very own. He phoned in to EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) Monday to accept the honor during our live awards broadcast and did his best not to reveal anything about Parks and Rec’s final season, which began shooting just last week. “We’ve been sworn to secrecy about everything, »

Ten Best: Live-action/Animation Movies

15 August 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ari Folman, visionary director of Waltz With Bashir, brings us a journey beyond imagination in his upcoming movie The Congress. Robin Wright (pictured above) plays a version of herself in this thought-provoking film, which merges live-action and colourful animation. To celebrate the release of The Congress today (our review is here), we take a look at some other movies which have embraced a live-action/animation mash-up.

1) Mary Poppins

Family favourite Mary Poppins delighted audiences when it first burst onto screens in 1964, and now 50 years later the magical tale continues to enchant a brand new generation of film fans. The hit adventure’s wonderful mix of live-action and fantasy animation was surely one of the elements which won it five Oscars at the 1965 Academy Awards, including Best Visual Effects.

2) Ted

Boston car hire salesman John’s (Mark Wahlberg) friendship with his best buddy Ted is so realistic that it is sometimes »

How Steven Soderbergh Made 'The Knick' Must-See TV

13 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

On the occasion of the Karlovy Vary Film festival tribute to Anonymous Content's Steve Golin and Michael Sugar, I sat down with the veteran manager who handles the careers of Joe Wright, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Winona Ryder, Richard Linklater, Marc Webb, Gavin Hood, Patty Jenkins, Scott BurnsCary Fukunaga and Steven Soderbergh, among others. As we talked, HBO's "True Detective," entirely directed by Fukunaga, is competiing for multiple Emmys and coming up was Soderbergh's elegant new Cinemax series "The Knick," starring Clive Owen as a forward-thinking surgeon in 1900 trying to save lives under primitive conditions at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital.  How long have you been working with Steven Soderbergh? I’ve been working with him… it’s now been six years. And so you’ve navigated this interesting career trajectory. Soderbergh is like the canary in the coal mine: someone who sees the future sooner than others. What did he go. »

What I Watched, What You Watched #257

10 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I had a much busier week than last with movies, beginning with Into the Storm, Calvary and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in theaters, and I've already reviewed all three of those. I also watched the first couple episodes of "The Knick", which I reviewed and commented on here. Then last night I watched, for the first time, Alfonso Cuaron's Great Expectations, which I did not think was any good, followed by Ben Stiller's Reality Bites, which was nice little film. The one thing I noticed, however, watching Reality Bites is how much Keira Knightley's acting style was pretty much taken directly from Winona Ryder. I wonder if that was a conscious thing or if it's just coincidence, because try watching that movie and not seeing Knightley in pretty much every single thing Ryder does. Other than that, not much to share. I'm about half-way through "Ready Player »

Criminal Adds Alice Eve To Its Cast

8 August 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ariel Vromen’s next film – Criminal – is shaping up to be proof positive of the filmmaker’s ability to attract fascinating casting combinations. Where his previous movie – 2012’s The Iceman – featured Michael Shannon, Chris Evans, James Franco, Winona Ryder, Ray Liotta and David Schwimmer, his forthcoming venture is bringing in names even more legendary in nature.

The plot centres around a dangerous criminal, who is tasked by the CIA to complete a dead agent’s mission after they implant that agent’s memories and experiences into his brain. Kevin Costner will feature in the leading role, with Ryan Reynolds, Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Oldman also signing up. By anyone’s standards, that’s quite a lot of testosterone, so we now have the announcement that Alice Eve will also co-star.

Having built a solid foundation for herself in recent years, with supporting roles in films such as The Raven, »

The Hundred Foot Journey | Review

7 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Like Curry For Chocolat: Hallstrom Sticks to the Fruits of the Bestseller List

If you’re going to compare director Lasse Hallstrom’s latest film, The Hundred-Foot Journey to his extensive filmography over the past decade, then it stands out like a bright shiny penny. Another of Hallstrom’s adaptations of recently beloved bestselling novels, this tries to recreate the magical culinary delights that drove his 2000 hit Chocolat to such great heights. Here he has stapled another grand actress into the cast with Helen Mirren (moonlighting with her best French accent—the magical chocolate film had Juliette Binoche) and has producers like Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg behind it. It’s an entirely prim and proper endeavor and appears clearly calibrated for a particular audience that favors a certain conservative strain to storytelling, where life’s uglier conceits like carnal knowledge and racist tendencies of the pastoral French are »

Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

29 July 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain, »

An Exclusive Sneak Peek at Oprah's New Passion Project, The Hundred-Foot Journey

23 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

In The Hundred-Foot Journey, Helen Mirren stars as a Michelin-starred French chef who is none too pleased when an Indian family opens a rival restaurant just across the road from her own. The film tells a charming story about the power of food in bridging cultures - and inspiring romance in the unlikeliest of places. Powerhouse producers Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey and Chocolat director Lasse Hallström helped bring the story to life, but the movie also introduces us to some new big-screen talents. Charlotte Le Bon, whose wide-eyed wit brings to mind a young Winona Ryder, and the handsome and heartfelt Manish Dayal hold their own with Helen in the big-screen adaptation of the bestselling book.

Edward Scissorhands sequel comic announced by Idw

18 July 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Idw Publishing has announced an Edward Scissorhands sequel comic.

Written by Kate Leth (Fraggle Rock) and illustrated by Drew Rausch (My Blacks Don't Match!), the comic will continue the story following the events of Tim Burton's Johnny Depp-starring 1990 film.

The five-issue miniseries will apparently feature the little girl who Winona Ryder's character told her story to in the movie.

"In a castle just outside a sleepy suburban town, a brilliant inventor created Edward Scissorhands... but left him tragically unfinished," reads Idw's solicitation.

"Two generations of exile have left Edward digging through abandoned experiments, but once he wakes up a creature left buried, he discovers he isn't the only one missing a vital piece.

"As Edward tries to fix a grave mistake, he comes face to face with a teenage girl who was sure he was only myth... despite the stories her grandmother told her, about the man she could never touch. »
