‘The Get Down’ Part Two: Exclusive Teaser Trailer Promises ‘Major League’ Music, Sets Release Date

27 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Get Down” got people up out of their seats when it debuted on Netflix last summer, but the new teaser trailer promises we haven’t seen anything yet. Come April 7, when the second half of Season 1 debuts, Baz Luhrmann and The Get Down Brothers are going to drop some “major league” music on us.

Better get ready.

The initial six episodes of “The Get Down” premiered in August 2016, earning largely positive reviews overall (and a rave from IndieWire). Starring Jimmy Smits, Giancarlo Esposito, Justice Smith, Shameik Moore, Herizen F. Guardiola, and Jaden Smith, the first half of Season 1 tracked the rise of a hip-hop supergroup — The Get Down Brothers — formed in the Bronx during the summer of 1977. Simultaneously, Mylene Cruz (Guardiola) gained prominence on her own… with a bit of help from the group’s leader, Books (Justice Smith), and the two shared a steamy romance.

Harvey Keitel may be the latest to join the cast of The Irishman

2 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Harvey Keitel joining The Irishman?

Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman looks like it’s set to be one of these greatest films to ever go into production. Not only does the film have the most tremendous cast in Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Bobby Cannavale, but it also has the freedom of Netflix as the streaming company has bought worldwide rights to distribute it.

The latest news is that Harvey Keitel is the latest Hollywood heavyweight to join the project, if new reports are correct. The Tracking Board is the outlet stating that Keitel is in talks to join the aforementioned in the film as none other than Jimmy Hoffa.

The film itself is about Frank Sheeran, a family man who was also reportedly a contract killer for the mob. Sheeran had 25 hits to his name, one possibly being that of Hoffa, who disappeared in 1975. It is »

Martin Scorsese is Heading to Netflix, But He Still Doesn’t Want You Watching Movies At Home

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Martin Scorsese turned heads this week when it was revealed that his $100 million gangster movie “The Irishman” would be moving from Paramount Pictures (which handled the director’s previous four movies) to Netflix.

The move arguably gives the streaming giant its most high-profile release to date, bolstered by the fact it marks Scorsese’s reunion with Robert De Niro, and the shift has forced many in the business to debate what exactly this means for the future of theatrical distribution. After all, Scorsese has long been a proponent of the big screen experience, so it’s hard to make sense of what exactly is attracting him to Netflix in the first place.

Martin Scorsese Criticizes At-Home Movie Viewing Day After Netflix Deal for ‘The Irishman’

3 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Martin Scorsese explained why watching movies at home is not as good as going to the cinema on the heels of signing a deal with Netflix to distribute his new film “The Irishman.” “The problem now is that it is everything around the frame that is distracting,” Scorsese told the audience at a BFI London event on Wednesday, per Screen Daily. “Now you can see a film on an iPad,” he continued. “You might be able to push it closer to your in your bedroom, just lock the door and look at it if you can but I do find just glimpsing. »

Peter Travers' 2017 Alt-Oscars: From Scorsese to 'Deadpool'

3 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Come Sunday, a.k.a. Oscars night, we'll all be tipping our hats to the year's winners. But before we do that, here's to the "losers" – the worthy ones of 2016 that, for whatever cockamamie reason, didn't even get a nomination.

In an effort to do right where the Academy effed up, I give you the Travers Awards – my own personal version of the Alt-Oscars. (For those of you playing along at home, the award is an engraved image of a critic screaming.) It's one last chance to single out the »

Fresh Off Netflix Deal For ‘The Irishman,’ Martin Scorsese Says Watching Movies On TV “Is Not The Best Way”

3 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Martin Scorsese‘s “Silence” is easily his most powerful exploration yet of the devout having their faith tested, the filmmaker, who once considered becoming a priest, has long prayed at the altar of cinema. There are few advocates for the medium as eloquent or knowledgeable as Scorsese, and even as a Netflix deal is inked for his upcoming “The Irishman,” his soul will not be bought so quickly or converted to the temple of convenient streaming at home.

Martin Scorsese criticises watching films at home, despite reported Netflix deal for 'The Irishman'

5 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Speaking at a BFI event in London, the director said film viewing on tablet or TV was “not the best way”.

In a wide ranging interview at BFI Southbank last night, Martin Scorsese touched on everything from the origins of the “you talking to me” monologue from Taxi Driver to his dislike of watching films on tablets and TV.

“The problem now is that it is everything around the frame that is distracting,” the iconic filmmaker told a rapt audience about watching movies at home.

“Now you can see a film on an iPad. You might be able to push it closer to your [face] in your bedroom, just lock the door and look at it if you can but I do find just glimpsing stuff here or there, even watching a film at home on a big-screen TV, there is still stuff around the room.

Martin Scorsese on Reuniting With De Niro for ‘Irishman,’ the Sinatra Biopic That Got Away

6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London – “The joy of creating a film has to be in making something, even in the worst circumstances. It’s about the passion,” Martin Scorsese told a packed audience at a special event celebrating the director’s career at London’s BFI Southbank on Wednesday night. “To retain that passion is the key.”

Scorsese spoke about his passion, his work with film preservation and how the industry has changed during his long career. The Oscar-winning director also spoke about his upcoming project “The Irishman,” though he avoided mention of the rumors currently swirling around financing and rights to the film, including the possibility that Netflix could take worldwide rights in an eyebrow-raising deal.

The long-gestating “Irishman” is set to reunite Scorsese with Robert De Niro for a ninth time and would mark his first collaboration with Al Pacino. “Al and I have been trying to get to do a »

Why Martin Scorsese’s Netflix Deal Is The Future of Cinema (And That’s Ok)

19 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Depending on what you read and how you browse, Netflix is either destroying our culture or defining its priorities. The platform is a paradigm for impulsive viewing habits and making do with what’s at your immediate disposal. It’s a brand that’s seriously rattled the film industry, since Netflix contradicts the idea of paying to see something on the big screen.

However, we’ve passed the point where Netflix is merely a challenge to the way we understand movies and television. Even if the company inexplicably went bankrupt tomorrow, or its servers got hacked, or Apple bought it out, it no longer matters because another digital giant would take its place. The future has arrived, and for the moment, Netflix owns it.

‘Shadow of Truth’ Exclusive Trailer: Netflix’s Israeli True Crime Docuseries Could Be the Next ‘Making a Murderer’ — Watch

20 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What happens if you suspect your judicial system of being unjust?

That’s the question many Israelis faced in Netflix‘s “Shadow of Truth,” a four-part documentary series about the murder of a 13-year-old girl, Tair Rada, in Golan Heights during the daytime at her high school in 2006. Although a suspect was questioned, confessed and was eventually found guilty, his conviction has been the subject of wide controversy in the country.

Rada’s murder case was a matter of intense scrutiny by the public who didn’t want their own children to fall victim to such a senseless crime. Unfortunately, the conviction didn’t mollify the public because there were far too many pieces that didn’t add up.

Martin Scorcese's powerful religious film, following the Catholic church's mission to instill Christianity in Fuedal Japan, Silence is coming out this March!  Come inside to find out how you can get your hands on it early.

One of the biggest snubs of this year's Academy Awards, Silence, is making its way to digital and blu-ray, merely 3 months after being on the big screen.  The Martin Scorsese religious feature, starring Andrew GarfieldAdam Driver, and Liam Neeson will arrive on Blu-Ray on March 28th, but for audiences who can't wait that long the Digital HD version will be available March 14th.

Movie News: Martin Scorsese's Mob Movie 'The Irishman' Heads to Netflix; James Gunn Wanted to Make 'Hitman'

22 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Irishman: Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, starring Robert De Niro, is heading to Netflix. It's based on I Heard You Paint Houses, a book by Charles Brandt that told the story of a mob hitman who claimed he knew what really happened to long-missing union leader Jimmy Hoffa. De Niro will play the hitman; so-called "de-aging" technology will make the 73-year-old actor look younger for the role. Al Pacino and others are in negotiations to join the cast. The movie is aiming for release in 2019. [Indiewire]   Hitman: Director James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy, above left) says he "tried to make a Hitman movie a few years ago.

The project was originally set up for domestic distribution at Paramount, Scorsese’s longtime home, for pictures like “Shutter Island,” “The Wolf Of Wall Street,” and “Silence,” with indie upstarts Stx acquiring significant foreign rights last summer for $50 million.

‘Iron Fist’ Video Explains Why Netflix’s Latest Marvel Hero Punches So Damn Hard

22 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you focus your chi.

In the sneak peek of “Marvel’s Iron Fist” below, we learn the backstory that made former billionaire Danny Rand (“Game of Thrones” star Finn Jones) what he is today. Besides surviving a harrowing plane crash that left him an orphan, he apparently learned how to harness the fire of the fist from some monks who know how to do a lot more than pray.

But 15 years after that fateful plane crash, Danny has returned to New York sans shoes and frankly looking kind of homeless. Let’s just say it’s not the warm and fuzzy reunion he was hoping for.
