David Simon’s ‘Show Me a Hero’: How Director Paul Haggis Controlled Chaos

23 June 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

HBO limited series “Show Me a Hero” is noisy. Cacophony reigns in crowded city council meetings packed with yelling onlookers and jostling media microphones. It’s hard to figure out just what is going on. Oscar Isaac as beleaguered Nick Wasicsko, the youngest mayor in America, pounds his gavel to no avail. Adapted from Lisa Belkin’s 1999 book by David Simon and his “The Wire” collaborator Bill Zorzi, “Show Me a Hero” digs into the unsexy ’80s true story about the pitched battle between the haves and have-nots in Yonkers, New York over court-ordered public housing. When HBO finally greenlit the series, it was with the knowledge that this story is as resonant as ever.

While the WGA-nominated writing is brilliant, a pivotal member of this team of storytellers earning rave reviews is DGA-nominated Paul Haggis, who directed all six episodes. Haggis said he eagerly leapt at his first television »

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Deleted Scene Gets Awkward with Tina Fey | Exclusive

17 June 2016 2:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A chance encounter leads to a quick make-out session in our exclusive deleted scene from the new comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, which debuted on Digital HD earlier this week ahead of its Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand debut on June 28. This scene features Kim (Tina Fey) who runs into Nic (Stephen Peacocke), which leads to an awkward and quick make-out session, while Iain (Martin Freeman) gets some rest. This comedy, based on a true story, hit theaters in March.

Based on real-life reporter Kim Barker's revealing and funny memoir about covering the war beat in the Middle East, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is a sharp and savvy film that critics are calling "boldly entertaining." A satirical take on combat journalists and an illuminating story of self-discovery, the film follows Kim (Tina Fey) as she decides to shake things up by taking a dangerous assignment in Afghanistan. There, in the midst of chaos, »

Scott’s Los Angeles Film Festival Dispatch, Part One

15 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Independent cinema is the clear focus at La Film Fest. This doesn’t mean they’re completely clear of the sort of pre-packaged, studio-lite fare that tends to climb awards-season ladders into our multiplexes – this year’s festival featured films starring Chris Messina, Idris Elba, Alfred Molina, Gemma Arterton, Gael Garcia Bernal, Gillian Jacobs, and Topher Grace, plus The Conjuring 2, an outright studio film. And even those films without such attachments are not entirely free from the influence, following familiar beats and a sort of glossy presentation in an attempt to “fit in” with the big boys. The extent to which these films could truly be called “independent” is thus debatable, and lends a sort of discomfort to aligning them with truly adventurous voices. That disparity is most evident in four thrillers that played at the festival, which range from practically begging to be let in to actively refusing any sense of acceptance. »

Angelina Jolie Set For "Orient Express"

10 June 2016 9:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Angelina Jolie is in early talks to join Kenneth Branagh's new adaptation of Agatha Christie's classic 1934 novel "Murder on the Orient Express" for 20th Century Fox.

The story revolves around a murder onboard the famous train of a rather nasty American tycoon. Belgian detective Uercule Poirot must figure out who is responsible before the train, currently stuck in the snow, is freed and allows for the potential suspects to disembark. The answer, which ties back to a famous child abduction case, is more complicated than he could have ever thought.

Branagh not only directs but stars in the film as Poirot, but what role Jolie will play is unclear. The likes of Jessica Chastain, Ingrid Bergman, Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall, John Gielguld, Vanessa Redgrave, Alfred Molina, Michael York, Anthony Perkins, Jacqueline Bisset, Barbara Hershey, Hugh Bonneville and David Morrissey have starred in the three previous screen versions of the story. »

Angelina Jolie Circles ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Remake

10 June 2016 1:20 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Angelina Jolie is in early talks to board Fox’s remake of “Murder on the Orient Express.”

Fellow actor/director Kenneth Branagh is helming the film, in addition to starring as Hercule Poirot. The producers are Branagh, Ridley Scott, Simon Kinberg and Mark Gordon. Michael Schaefer and Aditya Sood will also produce in some capacity.

Michael Green (“Blade Runner 2”) is writing the screenplay based on Agatha Christie’s novel, with Steve Asbell overseeing the production for Fox.

Christie’s book, published in 1934, revolves around a murder onboard the famous train. The film follows Belgian detective Poirot who’s tasked with solving the case — in which a number of passengers could potentially be the murderer.

Variety reported in 2013 that Fox was developing the project as a remake of Sidney Lumet’s 1974 movie, which starred Albert Finney as the genius detective investigating the murder of an American tycoon aboard the train. The »

Kate Nowlin’s thriller “Blood Stripe,” directed by Remy Auberjonois, has won the U.S. Fiction Award at the La Film Festival.

Director Jeremy Konner Reveals How ‘Donald Trump: The Art of the Deal’ Came Together

9 June 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jeremy Konner loves history. And comedy. His passions come together as one of the creative forces behind Comedy Central’s “Another Period,” a sort of “Real Housewives of the Gilded Age” sendup, and the Emmy-nominated “Drunk History.” Konner directed Funny or Die’s “lost TV movie adaptation” of Donald Trump’s 1987 book “The Art of the Deal,” starring Johnny Depp as the presumptive Republican nominee that was released earlier this year.

What was the motivation for “Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal: The Movie”?

It was a huge surprise. From what I understand Johnny Depp was meeting with Adam McKay and Owen Burke, who runs Funny or Die and is also a “Drunk History” producer. Owen had wanted to do an “Art of the Deal” spoof. He pitched it to Johnny: “You ever want to play Donald Trump? We’re shooting this feature film in four days.” And Johnny, »

Marvel May Still Be Making The Sinister Six Movie, Here's Why

22 May 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Truly, ever since it became clear that The Avengers was happening, fans had a lot of hope that Spider-Man would be a part of that world, and with the release of Captain America: Civil War, they finally got their wish. Tom Holland has delivered what very well may be the best on screen Spider-Man we have ever seen and he will be getting a big chance to really shine next year when Spider-Man: Homecoming is released and as the film nears production, we have been slowly learning details about the villains and loose plot details. Though it is very early on, it looks like Marvel Studios may be laying the seeds for something much bigger to come with Spidey's arc in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that thing could be The Sinister Six.

For those that may not be as familiar with their Spider-Man history, The Sinister Six is essentially »

It's been decades since Bette Davis and Joan Crawford collaborated onscreen for the iconic film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, but, if you ask Susan Sarandon, not much has necessarily changed. The actress tells Entertainment Weekly and People at the Cannes Film Festival that her new FX series, Feud, is "the examination of Hollywood through the time of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford." "The question is whether or not things have actually changed that much," Sarandon explains. "Do we pit women against women? Do the studios still have more power than individual women?"

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot review

Tina Fey and Martin Freeman star in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, that's finally made it to cinemas. It's been worth the wait...

If you're wondering whether or not Whiskey Tango Foxtrot marks something of a departure for Tina Fey, the answer is yes and no. It's based on a true story and mostly takes place in an active war zone, but it's also very funny and Fey's role as journalist Kim Baker seems tailor-made for her. Happily, the end result is her best big screen leading role to date.

Fey's long-time writing partner Robert Carlock provides the script, based on Baker's memoir The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days In Afghanistan And Pakistan, whose New York Times review observed that the author presented herself “as a Tina Fey character.” Unsurprisingly, the transition from page to screen has been very smooth since Paramount optioned the book, even with various artistic »

Official Trailer for Ira Sachs' New Film 'Little Men' with Greg Kinnear

13 May 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Our parents are involved in a business matter..." Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for Ira Sachs' Little Men, a film about two boys growing up in New York City. I was a huge fan of Ira Sachs' previous film, Love is Strange, and while I didn't love this one as much as that film - I still suggest seeing it. Greg Kinnear stars as the father of one of the two boys, who are played by Michael Barbieri and Theo Taplitz; the full cast also features Jennifer Ehle, Alfred Molina, Talia Balsam and Paulina Garcia. This is a rather wonderful trailer that really does a great job of setting up the story and hopefully grabbing the attention of a few curious cinephiles. But then again, it's worth watching any of Ira Sachs' films. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ira Sachs' Little Men, »

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot review: “Fey at her best”

13 May 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot review: Tina Fey impresses in this cautionary dreamed about life and reporting in the Kabubble.

The wildly talented Tina Fey (Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock anyone?) finally hits cinematic pay dirt with her surprisingly entertaining dramedy Whisky Tango Foxtrot.  Based on journalist Kim Barker’s ‘The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan’ – a memoir about her experiences reporting in the region – this oxymoronic and cautionary tale of absurdity and realism in the ‘Kabubble’ is itself… awfully good.

Tina Fey plays Kim Baker, a successful TV network producer whose ennui and candidature (a.k.a. childless and unmarried) for a foreign correspondent position in Afghanistan prompts her to accept the position, say a temporary farewell to her equally successful boyfriend Chris (Josh Charles) and naively head off on assignment to Kabul.

After being welcomed to Afghanistan by a local woman screaming ‘Cover yourself, shameless whore!’, she »
