Watch This: Oliver Stone made a fascinating Bush biography before his term was up

18 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Every day, Watch This offers staff recommendations inspired by a new movie coming out that week. This week: With the election almost upon us and the Obama drama Southside With You coming soon to theaters, we tweak an old Watch This topic and hail some of our favorite films about real U.S. Presidents.

W. (2008)

Widely considered the least liked of Oliver Stone’s three presidentially themed films, W. may have suffered from its inability to rip the lid off the second George W. Bush presidency on its way out the door. The movie’s release was timed to coincide with the end of the 2008 election season, before Bush had completed his second term, but while Stone’s biography-in-progress certainly doesn’t skimp on damning moments in Bush’s life and presidency, it’s not quite the expected rabble-rouser either. Stone gives Bush a speedier version of ...

Longtime publicity and marketing executive Andrea Jaffe, who was once called the “iron-fisted personal publicist” of Tom Cruise and also worked closely with Oliver Stone, died Wednesday in Wilmington, N.C. after a lengthy illness.

She was the daughter of Leo Jaffe, the late Columbia Pictures chairman, and sister of producer and former Paramount Communications COO Stanley Jaffe.

Wild Bunch’s ‘150 Milligrams,’ From Emmanuelle Bercot, Opens San Sebastian

24 August 2016 2:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Emmanuelle Bercot’s “150 Milligrams” (“La Fille de Brest”) will open the 64th San Sebastian Festival, the highest-profile movie event in the Spanish-speaking world.

The Sept. 16 opening-night berth marks another step up in status for France’s Bercot, who is fast emerging as one of Europe’s most prominent writer-director-actresses after her annus mirabilis at Cannes last year, when “La Tete Haute” (“Standing Tall”), her fifth feature as a director, opened the festival and “Mon Roi” (“My King”) won her the award for best actress.

“150 Milligrams,” sold by Wild Bunch, marks the company’s fourth high-profile title to date at the Spanish festival, which closes with Jerome Salle’s “The Odyssey.” Wild Bunch is also handling world sales on one of San Sebastian’s most-anticipated competition contenders, Bertrand Bonello’s youth terrorist thriller “Nocturama,” plus Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” which screens out of competition.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt addresses the demise of the network that aired his TV show

23 August 2016 8:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pivot, the short-lived cable network of Participant Media, is going dark this fall, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that we’ve seen the last of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s HitRecord on TV series. The variety series, which aired for two seasons on Pivot, was a creation of Gordon-Levitt and his crowd-sourced production company, hitRECord. In a video posted to hitRECord’s website on Tuesday night, the actor-director confirmed, “We won’t be doing a third season for Pivot.” Of any potential future for HitRecord on TV elsewhere, he said, “Whether or not we’ll be doing a third season for somebody else — that’s really a big question mark right now, and there’s lots and lots of kind of complicated variables that still remain to be worked out as far as whether we will be doing a third season of that show for someone else.

Watch This: Has Nixon ever been mocked with more sweet sincerity?

Dick (1999)

Oliver Stone’s excellent 1995 film Nixon brought depth and empathy to a controversial U.S. president, which in a way made it easier for Dick to circle back around to mockery. Its portrayal of Richard Nixon (Dan Hedaya) during the Watergate break-in and subsequent investigation might have come across as a cheap caricature, but the movie gleefully turns other key players in the scandal into goofs, too. Director and co-writer Andrew Fleming does a particularly savage number on intrepid reporting team Woodward and Bernstein, implicitly spoofing All The President’s Men by ...

45 Movies To Look Forward To Before The End Of 2016 1 of 45   

Click to skip The Light Between Oceans - Sept 2nd

Why You Should See It: Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are currently two of Hollywood's most in demand talents and seeing them lighting up the screen together, in a Derek Cianfrance film no less, should be a treat.

Morgan - Sept 2nd

Why You Should See It: Kate Mara heads to space again with a Scott. This time, however, it's Luke, Ridley's son, in what promises to be a thrilling sci-fi debut (in the vein of Ex Machina) for the filmmaker.

Yoga Hosers - Sept 2nd

Why You Should See It: Kevin Smith's name should be enough to get you into theatres for Yoga Hosers. But if it's not, you can also look forward to Mr. Johnny Depp reprising his role of Guy Lapointe.

Why Liking Bad Films Means You’re Smarter Than Average

21 August 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If you’re constantly getting abuse from your friends about your taste in films, Neil Calloway says help may be at hand from a recent study…

In what appears to be the cinematic equivalent of those studies that receive an inordinate amount of publicity when they trumpet the fact that gorging yourself on chocolate and red wine makes your healthier,“Enjoying trash films: Underlying features, viewing stances, and experiential response dimensions” from the Max Planck Society argues that more intelligent people enjoy bad films. Now you have an excuse for your collection of Uwe Boll and WWE movies; you watch them because you’re intelligent.

Of course, correlation does not mean causation (the more films Nicolas Cage appears in in a given year, the more people drown in swimming pools); watching Roger Corman and Troma Movies doesn’t make you smarter, it’s just more intelligent people are more like to enjoy trashier films. »

‘Snowden’ Clip: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley Debate Patriotism – Watch

20 August 2016 12:06 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

They say opposites attract, and that seems to be very much the case in the latest “Snowden” clip.

In the new video from the Oliver Stone-directed biopic about the Nsa whistleblower, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who portrays the title character, and Shailene Woodley, his longtime girlfriend Lindsay Mills, are seen strolling past protestors outside of the White House. Right from the beginning you can tell that the couple has opposing political views; Mills is anti-war and a liberal, while Snowden is a conservative with strong reservations.

“I don’t really like bashing my country,” Snowden says after Mills asks if the protestors have “too much independent spirit.” Mills replies to his answer by saying, “It’s my country too and right now it has blood on its hands.”

Extended Snowden Clip Spotlights The Human Side Of Oliver Stone’s Tech Thriller

20 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The gloves are off in this new, extended clip for Snowden – and we’re not talking about the whistleblower’s crusade against the Nsa.

Instead, today’s all-new snippet shifts focus to the human element of Oliver Stone’s long-awaited drama, teeing up a political debate between Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley on the grounds of the capital. It’s a nice tease, and already we’re sensing a natural dynamic developing between the film’s two leading stars.

Together, they’ll anchor Stone’s political thriller as Snowden and his girlfriend Lindsay Mills, who becomes drawn into a web of data mining and government surveillance once Gordon-Levitt’s lead casts a blinding light on the Nsa’s malpractice – classified information that featured the likes of Prism and more.

Turned down by every major studio due to its pressing subject matter, Oliver Stone’s Snowden will finally emerge into theaters »

Whether you consider him a whistleblower doing a public service or a traitor who betrayed his country (or even if you have mixed feelings), there’s probably no one in the United States who doesn’t have a strong opinion on Edward Snowden. The man behind the 2013 leak of classified Nsa documents exists more as an icon than a person in popular consciousness, something Oliver Stone’s biopic Snowden aims to change.
