Watch: Bryan Cranston Charms in Biopic ‘Trumbo’

28 August 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Bryan Cranston is slowly but surely achieving pop culture domination. After God knows how many Emmys (four) for his performance in AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” plus a Tony Award for playing Lbj in “All the Way,” it now seems Cranston will be going, well, all the way in his bid for hardest working actor in the biz. “Trumbo,” directed by Jay Roach with a script by John McNamara, is based on the life of 1940s Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, whose career hit a roadblock when he was blacklisted for being a suspected Communist. His fight against the U.S. government and studio heads for freedom of speech implicated John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, and countless others. Joining Cranston in the title role is Diane Lane as his wife, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, and John Goodman. Helen Mirren gives what looks to be a juicy supporting performance as Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper. »

Love The Coopers Trailer Takes Christmas Down A Peg

28 August 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

It’s been a while since a film took a real shot at Christmas, outside the camp genre, and if an anti-feel good, holiday movie filled with stars can’t get people to show up, it’s difficult to figure what will.

Love the Coopers has your standard holiday premise, the family is getting back together for Christmas, but this isn’t your average family, except the “joke” is that it is. If it isn’t a pretend boyfriend, or kleptomania, it’s more standard fare, like the trials and tribulations of single fatherhood, but it all adds up to a largely wacky family, and Mom and Dad aren’t a lot better.

Despite the monkey wrenches thrown into the family dynamic, it looks like fairly standard stuff, which could be a result of the writing/directing team of Steven Rogers (Stepmom, P.S. I Love You) and Jessie Nelson (Corrina, »

Love The Coopers Trailer Channels The Griswolds For New Festive Comedy

26 August 2015 11:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For the most wonderful time of the year, the Christmas period is often ripe for the picking when it comes to screwball comedies, whether it’s age-old classics in the vein of Home Alone or the much more forgettable Deck the Halls. Though one ensemble piece that still stands the test of time is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, and its legacy lives on in the first trailer for Love The Coopers.

In the works at CBS Films and Lionsgate, the film brings together a star-studded cast for what seems to be a fairly run of the mill Christmas comedy. From misbehaving children to festive plans going up in smokes, Love The Coopers ticks all the generic boxes, but one thing separating it from the pack – and perhaps acting as its saving grace – is the ensemble cast.

From Diane Keaton and John Goodman’s hapless grandparents to Olivia Wilde, Ed Helms, »

It's the Most Wonderful Time of Year in 'Love the Coopers' Trailer

26 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There are only 120 days until Christmas, so hope you're ready to celebrate with the Coopers!

Yahoo has the trailer for the star-studded holiday comedy "Love the Coopers," and it bears quite the resemblance to "The Family Stone." It shares the producing team, as well as star Diane Keaton, who joins John Goodman as the parents of adult siblings engaging in wacky antics.

That includes Olivia Wilde as a perpetually single Eleanor, who recruits a soldier to pretend to be her boyfriend. There's Marisa Tomei's Emma, who accidentally shop-lifts. And Ed Helms is a single dad whose daughter likes to proclaim everyone is a jerk. So, yeah, lots of zany family happenings and mixed-up relationships, with heavy doses of feel-good holiday cheer. No doubt they'll all learn the true meaning of Christmas.

"Love the Coopers" opens in limited release November 13.

First look at Jay Roach’s biopic reveals Breaking Bad actor as Spartacus screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, supported by Helen Mirren and John Goodman

It’s an infamous tale of broken lives, strangled creative dreams and tunnel-visioned cowardice on the part of Hollywood’s major studio system at the height of the anti-communist McCarthy era. So it comes as something as a shock that the first trailer for Jay Roach’s Trumbo, starring Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston as the real-life blacklisted Oscar-winning screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, hints at a rousing and upbeat tale of rebellious film-making spirits with lively comedy notes.

Trumbo Trailer: You've Never Seen Bryan Cranston Like This

13 August 2015 8:46 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

From Breaking Bad to breaking open the blacklisting of Hollywood screenwriters in the 1940s! Bryan Cranston plays Dalton Trumbo, one of the famous writers whose career met a standstill when he was shunned by the filmmaking community for being a Communist. The first trailer for the movie, also starring Diane Lane, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Helen Mirren, and John Goodman, showcases Cranston like we've never seen him before. It's refreshing to see him sinking his teeth into a great role, and the Nov. 6 release date puts this movie in a good spot for potential award season recognition.

Bryan Cranston Plays The Shunned Screenwriter In First Trailer For Biopic Trumbo

13 August 2015 7:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After securing its place among the crowded attendees of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, we now have the maiden trailer for Jay Roach’s (The Campaign) upcoming biopic Trumbo, which has Breaking Bad fan-favorite Bryan Cranston in the lead role as the shunned screenwriter.

Charting the overly successful career of the titular, 1940s scribe, our first look at the feature sees Cranston’s reign atop the Hollywood writer hierarchy come to a crushing end. With a palpable anti-Communist mentality engulfing the United States, Trumbo is effectively blacklisted from Tinsel Town, leaving his professional and personal life in a tattered heap. As Cranston’s lead engineers a way to rally against the system, his campaign draws in some of the A-listers of the time including everyone from Hedda Hopper to John Wayne, and Kirk Douglas to Otto Preminger.

Once the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood at the time, Trumbo »
