Winona Ryder Says It's 'Liberating' Playing Characters Her Own Age

16 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Winona Ryder decided to retreat from the spotlight, she was known as a leading lady - the young, doe-eyed actress who starred opposite the likes of Christian Slater and Daniel Day-Lewis. Her status as the go-to girl of the '90s, however, made a return to film decades later more difficult, she tells Time. Ryder, now 44, told Time that after years of success, she began to look to the film industry for validation - something she calls a mistake. "I will admit I was guilty of that when I was younger because you get caught up in it, surrounded »

Edinburgh International Film Festival 2016 Review – Maggie’s Plan (2016)

18 June 2016 3:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Maggie’s Plan, 2016.

Directed by Rebecca Miller

Starring Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Travis Fimmel, Wallace Shawn and Julianne Mooore.

Synopsis:

Maggie’s plan to have a baby on her own is derailed when she falls in love with John, a married man, destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant Georgette.

If there’s one thing in Hollywood over the past few years that’s a certainty is the tremendous ability for comedy that Greta Gerwig has in abundance. In her last few films, she has been catapulted to the top of the tree with her performances in such brilliant comedies as 2013’s Frances Ha, last year’s Mistress America and her other upcoming role in Todd Solondz’s Weiner-Dog. But for her new film, Maggie’s Plan, she is changing tack slightly with the help of acclaimed filmmaker Rebecca Miller. Different Gerwig, sure, but still classic and magnificent Gerwig. »

As Stacey Snider Ascends at Fox, Hollywood Is in Turnaround

17 June 2016 9:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

At the 2014 New York Film Festival premiere of “Gone Girl,” Twentieth Century Fox Film Chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos seemed visibly relieved to have Stacey Snider finally join the studio, after months of speculation that this capable executive would join him from DreamWorks. Now, almost two years later —and after a 25-year career at Fox —the studio has confirmed that Gianopulos’ contract will not be renewed after it expires on June 30, 2017, when he will graduate “upstairs” into an executive role at parent company 21st Century Fox.

This follows a transition for Snider that has not been smooth. While the veteran exec has the right mix of skills to run a studio (and did so at Universal with Ron Meyer), knows how to manage a team of executives, and how to develop, produce, and release movies that are smart and four-quadrant friendly, entering the Fox landscape proved to be a challenge. »

Guide to Giallo, Speculating the Basis For PTA’s Next Film, Blockbuster Earnings Breakdown, and More

Roger Corman will get a tribute at this year’s Locarno Film Festival.

Vulture‘s Kyle Buchanan posits what Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis‘ next movie might be about:

While New York came into its own as a style capital after World War II, the 1950s were mostly dominated by designers who lived and worked in Europe, like Christian Dior, Pierre Balmain, and Cristóbal Balenciaga, so if you presume that Day-Lewis’s character is a notable fashion designer — and given that the actor is in his late 50s, it’s not likely he’d be playing some mere lackey — then there are only a few notable, New »

Mindy Newell: Tiptoeing Through Geek Culture

6 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Last of the Mohicans, by James Feinmore Cooper, is a great American classic. My parents had a Book-of-the-Month copy in their bookcase with illustrations by Newell Wyeth, Andrew’s father, and I first read it at about age 8. Today (Sunday), I watched the 1992 Last of the Mohicans, the one starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeline Stowe, and Wes Studi. Great, great movie, also a favorite of my buddy and fellow columnist Johnny O’s; in fact, it was John and Kim who turned me on to this particular cinema adaption, oh, those so many years ago at their home in Norfolk, Connecticut. I was familiar with the 1936 version, which starred Randolph Scott, Bruce Cabot, and Binnie Barnes, which was pretty good, but director Michael Mann’s adaptation is a gothic work of art, boasting beautiful cinematography and a romantic and haunting soundtrack.

I’ve also been blissfully gorging on Season 2 of Outlander, »

Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis to reunite for 1950s fashion drama

5 June 2016 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Variety, Daniel Day-Lewis and Paul Thomas Anderson are in talks to reunite for a new feature film which will take place in 1950s New York and revolve around the world of fashion.

Although no deal is yet in place, Day-Lewis is said to have been loosely attached to the project for some time, while PTA is currently finalising the script and meeting young actresses of Eastern European descent for supporting roles.

Should the project come together, it would mark the second collaboration between the duo, with Anderson directing Day-Lewis in 2007’s There Will Be Blood, which saw the actor winning his second Oscar. He has been inactive since winning his third for 2012’s Lincoln. Anderson’s last feature film was 2014’s Inherent Vice, although he has since helmed music videos for Radiohead and Joanna Newsom along with the music documentary Junun.

3 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

X-Men: Director Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse) suggests that shape-shifting mutant Mystique (above) could be featured in an X-Men spin-off movie because she has a "different view of the world. … It opens up a lot of avenues." The character was originally played by Rebecca Romijn and more recently by Jennifer Lawrence, who has signaled her readiness to move on from the role. Still, Singer said that Mystique would be "right, whether it's Jennifer or not."

Is it just a terrible oversight or did his invitation skip my notice?

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Untitled ’50s Fashion Drama To Herald Reunion With Daniel Day-Lewis

3 June 2016 7:26 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Decorated filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson is on the verge of a new collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis, the award-winning duo that fired There Will Be Blood to critical success almost a decade ago.

Variety reveals that the pair are primed to swap the sun-kissed plains of Little Boston for the catwalk, with Anderson’s latest set to unfold against the New York fashion industry of the 1950s. Without a title to call its own, it’s still early days on the project, though Variety notes that the three-time Oscar winner has been attached to the period drama for some time, and it’s only now that Anderson has taken an interest in the film that it’s begun to garner some momentum.

Currently whipping the script into shape, Anderson is reportedly casting the net for “young actresses of Eastern European descent” as the auteur begins to round out the ensemble cast. »

Ethan Hawke is one of the stars of Rebecca Miller’s new screwball romantic comedy, “Maggie’s Plan,” which had a special screening on Thursday at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York. But the actor said his decision to work on the film was all about the women in charge.

“I’ve spent a lot of time in my life on sets that were boys clubs,” Hawke said. “This was a really powerful group of women,” he added, referring to Miller as well as his co-stars Greta Gerwig and Julianne Moore. “It was really fun. I have a lot of respect for those women.”

The film centers on Gerwig (the titular Maggie) who wants to become a mother, and plans to get pregnant through artificial insemination, until her plans go awry. Miller wrote the the screenplay based on the short story by her friend Karen Rinaldi, and talked about why it felt particularly relevant. »
