Fall Movie Preview: A Guide to Totally Early Oscar 2018 Predictions

1 hour ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

An Oscar movie could hit theaters at any time during the year -- as far as the rules are concerned, it only needs to be released between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 to be eligible -- but everyone knows that all of the true contenders arrive in the last quarter of the year.

I suppose some Academy-worthy movies have already been released: Dunkirk, right? The Big Sick and Get Out less likely, but perhaps! I guess some people believe Wonder Woman could really get a Best Picture nomination.... So, instead of considering this our first round of Oscar predictions, think of it as a Ones to Watch list to prepare you as studios start showing off their films that could earn noms at next year's Academy Awards. (Which are still five months away, Fyi, on March 4, 2018.)

Steve Carell’s Range Gets a Showcase With ‘Battle of the Sexes,’ ‘Last Flag Flying’

17 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The film awards season is barely a few weeks old and it already has a candidate for Mvp: “Battle of the Sexes” and “Last Flag Flying” star Steve Carell.

When Carell first saddled up to prestige projects 11 years ago in Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’ “Little Miss Sunshine,” you could swim in the number of stories noting the comedian’s shift into “serious” territory. It was pretty much what you’d expect for someone who had gone from sketch comedy and stealing scenes from Jim Carrey in “Bruce Almighty,” to dominating air waves with a broadcast sitcom and fronting a major Judd Apatow release, to headlining a high-profile Sundance selection.

A double-dip for indie cred followed soon after with Peter Hedges’ “Dan in Real Life,” but Carell maintained an unpredictable profile. There were humble dramedies (“Crazy Stupid Love,” “The Way Way Back”) mixed in with glossy studio comedies (“Get Smart,” “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone »

Twin Peaks” star Kyle MacLachlan also recently joined the cast. Eli Roth is directing with Eric Kripke penning the script.

“The Disaster Artist”: September Oscar predictions

22 September 2017 7:13 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s slowly turning into the fall, weather wise. At the same time, the films are beginning to become more and more prestige laden. The Academy Awards are still a ways off, but predictions need to continually evolve, now that we’re more than halfway through the festival season. As such, a laser focus on the awards season is what’s required now. Only a select few Oscar hopefuls have yet to screen for any pundits, and with that, there aren’t a lot of X factors in the race. You’ll shortly see what I think it all will turn out as for now, but this is just a drop in the bucket. The real moves will be made over the coming weeks. Stay tuned there. First, a bit of housekeeping to take care of. We’ve had Lean on Pete and You Were Never Really Here turn into 2018 releases, »

New to Streaming: ‘A Ghost Story,’ ‘Carol,’ ‘The Death of Louis Xiv,’ and More

22 September 2017 5:07 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Carol (Todd Haynes)

From the first note of Carter Burwell‘s magnificent score and opening shot of Edward Lachman’s ravishing cinematography — introducing a Brief Encounter-esque opening bookend — Todd Haynes transports one to an intoxicating world of first love and its requisite heartbreak. Carol excels at being many things: a romantic drama; a coming-of-age story; an exploration of family dynamics and social constructs of the time; an acting »

Are You Ready for the Most Exciting Oscar Race in Years?

19 September 2017 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The leaves are turning. The Emmys are behind us. The crowds in Venice, Telluride, Colo., and Toronto have dispersed. Oscar season is officially here.

As the industry spins out of the late-summer film festival circuit, which annually grinds the gears of the season to life, this year’s race is shaping up to be one of the most exciting ever observed in the early stages. There are plenty of strong contenders, but no out-and-out frontrunner. There isn’t even an agreed-upon trio of frontrunners, as there was last year when “Manchester by the Sea,” “La La Land” and “Moonlight” burst out of this corridor.

Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” was the first slam-dunk on the scene in July. Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water” was the first major festival splash after that, premiering on Aug. 31 within hours of another instant player, Joe Wright’s “Darkest Hour,” though they debuted thousands of miles apart; “Shape” landed in »

John Woo, Alex Gibney Movies Added to London Film Festival Lineup

18 September 2017 8:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

John Woo’s Japan-set police thriller “Manhunt” and Alex Gibney’s nonfiction murder mystery “No Stone Unturned” are among new additions to the lineup of this year’s BFI London Film Festival.

No Stone Unturned” will be in the Debate strand at Lff, where it will make its international premiere. It reopens the case of the Loughinisland massacre in Northern Ireland in the 1990s. The film was set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year but was pulled at the last minute because of legal issues.

Manhunt” sees Woo return to the police-thriller genre that helped seal his international reputation. The film centers on a lawyer who finds himself suspected of murder and on the run from a Japanese police officer.

Also added to the festival lineup is Xavier Legrand’s “Custody,” which scooped the Best Director and Best First Feature awards s at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month and follows a »

Fortress Of Solitude: Jeanne Dielman…

16 September 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Warning: The following piece was written without regard to the presence of “spoilers.”

We see the interior of a quiet apartment. It is lit with the waning diffuseness of a grey afternoon, and there is a woman moving about its hallways with a steadiness of purpose. The camera which affords us this look into her living space is fixated at an angle perpendicular to the front door, gazing at eye level down the main hallway toward a closed door. The woman greets the man who walks in the front door with indifferent familiarity, with silence. She takes his coat, hangs it on a hook somewhere beyond the purview of the frame, and they both continue quietly toward the far door, completing the introduction to an encounter they have engaged in many times before. The camera remains motionless as they close the door, and we never see what happens once it shuts. »

A graduate of Nyu’s Tisch School of the Arts, Delpy has directed, written or acted in more than 30 films. She’s been nominated at the European Film Awards twice, first as an actress in Volker Schlöndorff’s “Homo Faber,” in 1991, and as a director in 2007 with “2 Days in Paris,” which also earned a Cesar nomination.

The endless adaptability of Philip K Dick

15 September 2017 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From the new Blade Runner to Channel 4’s Electric Dreams, the insatiable hunger for ‘Pkd’ stories on screen shows no sign of abating

With the Channel 4 series of dramas based on his short stories starting, Philip K Dick has cemented his reputation as one of the most adapted science fiction authors of the modern age.

The most famous big-screen outing of recent years was Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, released in 1982, the year the author died. But there has also been Total Recall, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger (and its 2012 remake); Minority Report (2002), with Tom Cruise; the Richard Linklater “rotoscoped” version of A Scanner Darkly, which overlayed animation on live-action footage of Keanu Reeves; and 2011’s The Adjustment Bureau.

This Halloween, The League of Freedom will face their fears on Crackle in an all-new original special, “Supermansion: Drag Me To Halloween.” A nod to Sam Raimi’s “Drag Me To Hell,” fans can only guess at what the horror film’s influence will make on the comedy.

Last Flag Flying Releases Poster As Somber And Uninviting As Its Premise

13 September 2017 1:22 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Richard Linklater is already his own specialist genre that fascinates and rarely disappoints, but Last Flag Flying is a movie that takes a very special audience just to show up. It might seem like enough to know that three Vietnam veterans reunite to spend some time together reminiscing about their time during the war, but here we also add that their reason for coming back together is the death of one of their sons in Iraq.

Having Steve CarellBryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne on board may pique your interest, and if you make it to the trailer you’ll see that there’s a lot going on here, but there are a lot of people out there who, at this point, might think that maybe someone should just shoot their dog and have done. How depressing can we make a setup without excluding so many people that we can’t turn a profit? »

Maze Runner 3: Dylan O'Brien discusses his on-set injury

Kirsten Howard Sep 11, 2017

Dylan O'Brien has opened up about recovering from the serious injury he sustained during the making of Maze Runner: The Death Cure...

MTV's Teen Wolf has blessed quite a few of its cast with golden opportunities. Tyler Hoechlin left the show mid-way through its run to star in Richard Linklater's well-received 2016 project Everybody Wants Some!! and then filled the red boots of Superman over on The CW's hit series Supergirl. Colton Haynes also became a fan favourite, and branched out to various other shows, which this year includes Arrow and American Horror Story

Toronto Film Review: ‘On Chesil Beach’

7 September 2017 7:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What does it look like when stiff upper lips kiss? In the history of cinema, David Lean’s 1945 “Brief Encounter” stands apart — indeed, virtually alone — in elevating two painfully civilized and polite British lovers into an image of the purest romantic ardor. But now “Brief Encounter” has company.

On Chesil Beach,” which premiered on opening day of the Toronto film festival, is an adaptation of Ian McEwan’s 2007 novella about two young Brits on their honeymoon in 1962, and it’s a lyrical and rapturous film — a repressed passion play, funny, delicate and heartbreaking. It has an intoxicating quality of emotional wonder it shares with the acclaimed (but not yet released) Sundance hit “Call Me By Your Name,” as well as a talky intimacy that recalls Richard Linklater’s “Before” films. But it also has a quality all its own, a vision of love that’s shockingly old-fashioned and tinglingly audacious. “On Chesil Beach »
