Go All In With A New Video Essay Rundown Of Method Actors

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

Well, the Oscars are nearly upon us, but this year, the story of method acting that gobbled up the most attention wasn’t from the likes of Christian Bale or Daniel Day-Lewis or any other respected titan of the full-bore technique. Instead, it was surprisingly unsurprising: Jared Leto. And method he went. The stories from the set of the foul “Suicide Squad” abounded and ranged from normal (Will Smith said he never met Jared Leto, only The Joker) to strange (Leto sent Margot Robbie a live rat) to the sexually harassing (sending cast members used condoms).

Cinema’s Greatest Manhunt Movies

22 February 2017 4:53 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Manhunt movies have taken a shift over the years. Gone are the days of prohibition gangster heroism, liberating the common folk from the great depression with free flowing liquor. Times have changed and as Patriots Day shows us, heroes come in many forms and are often right under our noses.

Patriots Day exposes the stories of the everyday heroes involved in the manhunt for the Tsarnaev brothers following the devastating Boston Marathon attack in 2013. To celebrate the release of Peter Berg’s latest ‘based on true events’ film we’ve pulled together a list of the best manhunt movies currently at large.

Zero Dark Thirty

The exhausting hunt for Osama bin Laden was something the world was certainly aware of, but the cloak and dagger operation kept things under wraps until the evening of 1st May 2011 when in a seemingly sudden move, at least to the general population, bin Laden »

‘In Dubious Battle’ Review: A James Franco Period Protest Drama, Dubiously Made

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

In Dubious Battle” is not the first movie about a labor strike with Robert Duvall as the antagonizing boss man; that honor goes to the 1992 Disney musical starring Christian Bale, “Newsies,” in which Duvall portrayed Joseph Pulitzer. “Newsies” went on to receive five Golden Raspberry Award nominations, but it contained more drama and gusto than this humorless dirge from director-star James Franco.

This smug period drama follows the conventional narrative of an idealistic revolutionary and his fearless leader as they incite a strike among apple pickers in California’s fictional Torgas Valley. Matt Rager adapted the script from John Steinbeck’s 1936 novel, and the film is largely based on events that occurred during the California labor strikes of 1933.

See Wistful First Trailer for Terrence Malick's 'Song to Song'

17 February 2017 11:14 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Terrence Malick's Song to Song, an all-star drama that takes place against the backdrop of the Austin music scene, has revealed its first trailer ahead of its SXSW debut.

Soundtracked by Del Shannon's "Runaway," the trailer sets up the film's plot – although "plot" is a loose construct in Malick's recent films – as Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara portray a pair of indie rockers that fall in love in the Texas capital. Complicating matters is Michael Fassbender's smooth-talking music mogul and a waitress played by Natalie Portman, with »

Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara & Michael Fassbender Bring The Music In First Trailer For Terrence Malick’s ‘Song To Song’

17 February 2017 9:58 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Music, sex, rock ‘n roll….”Song To Song” (formerly titled “Weightless“) doesn’t sound like your average Terrence Malick movie, and perhaps that’s what makes this latest entry from the suddenly prolific director so intriguing (don’t forget, he’s already wrapped his next movie, the WWII pic “Radegund“). But some things remain the same, including his bonkers ensemble.

Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, and Holly Hunter all star in the movie set against the backdrop of the Austin music scene, where relationships collide.

With its March 17 theatrical release fast approaching from Broad Green Pictures, Terrence Malick’s third feature in three years — after Knight of Cups and Voyage of Time — Song to Song has finally graced us with a trailer.

(And, best of all, yet another new feature may be premiering by year’s end.)

Broad Green Pictures Is Missing Release Dates and Angering Filmmakers. Here’s Why.

16 February 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was baffling when distributor Broad Green Pictures pulled Lucy Walker’s “Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary” from the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, the same day as its intended premiere, with a press release that said the “post production process has taken longer than expected.”

Nearly a month later, Broad Green has made no further comment on the film’s status, but its homepage still boasts that “Lucy Walker’s Buena Vista Social Club documentary will have it’s [sic] official world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival!”

That disconnect (and typo) could be a matter of sloppy site maintenance, but multiple IndieWire interviews with people familiar with Walker’s film and Broad Green suggest more complex issues dog the three-year-old would-be studio. (Walker declined to comment for this article; Broad Green executives didn’t respond to requests for comment.)

Matt Damon’s The Great Wall Movie Review

16 February 2017 11:29 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on ew.com.

The Great Wall looks like it could be a really amazing video game. Alas, it’s a movie, and kind of a brick. A lavishly man-bunned Matt Damon stars as White Savior—sorry, William—a freelance medieval mercenary (he fights for gold, not honor; gunpowder, not glory) who joins forces with China’s fighting elite to battle the Tao Tie, a rapacious horde of homicidal reptiles hellbent on breaching the ancient city of Bianliang.

In the beginning, participation is hardly voluntary; William and his fellow traveler Tovar (NarcosPedro Pascal »
