How Viola Davis Got Her Power Back

13 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Viola Davis has been acting non-stop for three decades, yet some of that time was spent playing bit roles on movies for just two or three days at a time. It was steady work, but not the kind of gigs that would – in Davis’ words – “wake her up.”

Now, as her career explodes, Davis’ eyes are wide open. Next up, the star will be seen in Oscar contender “Fences,” the upcoming adaptation of August Wilson’s play directed by Denzel Washington. She’s in “Suicide Squad,” which comes out next week. And Season 3 of “How to Get Away With Murder,”  in which she stars as Annalise Keating, is now in production.

It wasn’t just her Oscar-nominated work in 2011’s “The Help” that Davis credits for bringing her to the next level. “Murder,” for which she’s just »

Mel Gibson’s ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Emerges as Surprise Awards Contender

15 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Mel Gibson is not the first person who comes to mind among Oscar contenders. But advance buzz is growing on World War II drama “Hacksaw Ridge” (Lionsgate, November 4), his return to the director’s chair after “Apocalypto” 10 years ago.

See the new trailer here. 

No matter how strong and resonant this true story turns out to be—it’s about a conscientious-objector medic (Andrew Garfield) who saves lives in the Battle of Okinawa without using a gun, and wins the Medal of Honor—the likelihood is slim of Gibson landing another Best Picture or Director nomination (he won both Oscars for “Braveheart” back in 1996, his only Oscar nominations). Too many Academy voters will never forgive his past behavior.

But if the movie, which will debut out of competition at the Venice Film Festival (August 31 – September 10), is well received by critics and audiences, other people involved could rise to Oscar contention — most notably, »

The Toronto International Film Festival announced a host of films that will be heading to Canada this September, including new offerings from Tom Ford, Denis Villeneuve, and Mira Nair.

The film selection was announced at a press conference earlier today, which you can watch here:

The special presentation lineup will feature the likes of Damien Chazelle’s eagerly anticipated Whiplash follow-up La La Land, Ewan McGregor’s Philip Roth adaptation American Pastoral, young Barack Obama movie Barry, Rachel Weisz’s Holocaust denier drama Denial, and Mascots, which is the latest mockumentary from Christopher Guest. Among the more eyebrow-raising entries: King Of The Dancehall from Nick Cannon—yes, that one—and a film called Catfight starring Anne Heche, Sandra Oh, and Alicia Silverstone. »
