What’s New on Netflix Streaming: September 2014

2 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, Netflix Streaming adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Here is a list of some that you might be interested in. Some of these may have been added halfway through or near the end of August, but we're going to include them in this roundup anyway since you might have missed them. Some of these may also have previously been on Netflix, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we've left out in the comments below.All Is Lost (2013) (available September 2)It's Robert Redford versus Mother Earth in Margin Call director J.C. Chandor's visceral indie drama. All Is Lost doesn't waste time on faux backstory or sappy characterizations. In a heartbeat, a leak in Redford's boat interrupts his sail around the Indian Ocean and he has to fix it. It's the beginning »

10 hours ago | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

When a stray shipping container collides with his yacht, Robert Redford's resourceful lone sailor finds himself adrift in the Indian Ocean with a hole in the side of his boat.

With director Jc Chandor giving Redford's character no respite - and barely a breath of dialogue - this riveting one-man show proves that actions speak a thousand words. »

Here's What's New on Netflix for September 2014

28 August 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's almost September, which means a whole new slew of titles on Netflix! August proved pretty lucrative on the quality title front, but it looks as though September it's going to blow the rundown out of the water.

TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.

Movie fans have plenty to look forward to from Netflix in September, too. Sam Raimi's undersung 1998 thriller "A Simple Plan" hits the streaming service September »

Faye Dunaway To Open France’s Lumiere Fest

27 August 2014 3:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following in the footsteps of Jean-Paul Belmondo, Faye Dunaway will open France’s 6th Lumiere- Grand Lyon Festival, attending for an opening evening gala screening of Arthur Penn’s 1967 modern classic “Bonnie and Clyde,” where she stars with Warren Beatty and Gene Hackman.

Taking place Oct. 13, the opening gala will take place at Lyon’s massive Halle Tony Garnier, with a restored Warner Bros. copy of “Bonnie and Clyde,” and much of the crème of the French film industry and around 5,000 spectators in attendance.

In a brief statement Wednesday, Dunaway said she was very touched by the invitation to a festival for film-lovers. Run by the Lumiere Institute’s Bertrand Tavernier and Thierry Fremaux, the Lumiere Festival, which only screens restorations, revivals and re-issues, noted Dunaway’s “immense contribution” to the emergence of U.S. independent cinema in the 1960s and ‘70s, citing a swathe of titles that Dunaway went »

Screenwriter Walter Bernstein at 95: Still Front and Center

26 August 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ask Walter Bernstein what makes for a good screenplay, and he’ll answer you with a (possibly apocryphal) story about Henry David Thoreau. “He was living out at Walden Pond and a friend came to tell him that Samuel Morse had just made the first successful wireless telegraph transmission from Boston to Portland, or something like that,” Bernstein says with the practiced storyteller’s delight in a well-told tale. “And Thoreau asked, ‘But what did it say?’ That’s always stuck with me. With all the technology and everything else, what’s it about?”

“What’s it about?” is a question Bernstein, who turned 95 this month, has been asking himself in one form or another for most of his 65-year career, which has stretched from the early days of live television to the modern era of binge watching, and from the lionized “golden age” of the studio system to the low-budget indie renaissance. »

Mark Wahlberg in Talks for Deepwater Horizon Bp Oil Disaster Film

19 August 2014 8:37 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Lionsgate is in talks with Mark Wahlberg to star in "Deepwater Horizon," the story of the Bp oil disaster that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Jc Chandor, whose last directed the Robert Redford drama "All Is Lost," is directing the new film from a script by Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z). The story is set on Deepwater Horizon, Bp's oil rig in the Gulf. In April 2010, it caught fire and exploded, killing 11 crew members and resulting in the largest offshore oil spill in United States history. If the deal is made, Wahlberg will play a manager on the rig who tries to save his men. »

Mark Wahlberg Boards Chandor's 'Deepwater Horizon' Movie

19 August 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

J.C. Chandor is easily one of the most exciting directors working right now and the guy has only two films -- Margin Call, All is Lost -- under his belt. Just the mere range of his projects from his tackling of the Wall Street crisis to a nearly silent film featuring Robert Redford lost at sea, and his next film, A Most Violent Year, tackling 1981 New York's epidemic of violence has me begging to see it as soon as possible. Next up is Deepwater Horizon, a film based on the disaster surrounding the Gulf of Mexico explosion and subsequent oil spill based on David Barstow, David Rohde and Stephanie Saul's New York Times piece detailing the rig's final hours. Just knowing Chandor's intimate way of filming makes the film a future top priority. Today the first bit of casting has been announced as Mark Wahlberg will star as the No. »

19 August 2014 10:41 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Could Mark Wahlberg be seguing from killer robots to doomed oil rigs?  A new report suggests that the "Transformers: Age of Extinction" actor is in talks to appear in the upcoming film, "Deepwater Horizon." According to Deadline, Wahlberg may appear in the J.C. Chandor-directed film based on the 2010 Bp oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico.  The movie will detail not just the disaster itself, but the 48 hours leading up to it as well. Wahlberg, who may wind up playing the number two manager in "Deepwater Horizon," is no stranger to doing dramatic movies based on true stories.  This past December he starred in "Lone Survivor," the story of Marcus Luttrell and a Navy Seal operation in Afghanistan that went very wrong. The actor is already quite busy with "The Gambler" and "Ted 2" due out in the first half of 2015 and is set to appear opposite Will Ferrell »

Familiar Marvel Characters Possibly Appearing In ‘Ant-Man’

17 August 2014 2:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After the resounding success of Marvel Studios Guardians Of The Galaxy two weeks ago, audiences have never been more enthusiastic about upcoming releases from the powerhouse studio. There had initially been some doubt that the Disney-owned studio could effectively translate obscure properties into box office hits, however that has all changed ever since Star-Lord and his crew blasted onto cinema screens.

Although next years Ant-man has hit more than a few speed bumps along the road of pre-production, it finally seems as if the film is back on track. However, we may now have a few more juicy details on one of the many factors that lead to the much-publicised departure of the projects original director, Edgar Wright. When the break-up between the studio and Wright first occurred, it was rumoured that Marvel’s insistence on including ‘franchise characters’ from the existing McU was partially to blame. Well now, it »

Willie Nelson's 12 Most Memorable Acting Roles

15 August 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Whether playing a vengeful preacher in Red Headed Stranger or a killer version of himself on USA's Monk, Willie Nelson is as at home in front of a camera as he is onstage. With a natural charisma and a drawling way with dialogue (his phrasing is as unique as the way he sings), Nelson has been casting bait for directors since Sydney Pollack first placed him opposite Robert Redford in 1979's The Electric Horseman. We count down a dozen of his most memorable roles, including his epic 1986 Miami Vice appearance and — run for the border! »

Rumor: Marvel Universe Cameos For 'Ant-Man' Revealed Plus Watch Baby Groot Dancing From 'Guardians Of The Galaxy'

15 August 2014 6:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At what point does Marvel's universe building go from being an integral part of a given film's storyline to a box they have check with each movie churned out by the studio? Some would argue it's reached that point already, and the following intel suggests Kevin Feige and co. are cramming characters into spaces they don't necessarily need to be in. Latino Review reports that in early drafts of "Ant-Man," a prologue sequence finds Hank Pym consorting with Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Armin Zola and a young Alexander Pierce (in case you forgot, he was the bland villain from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" played by Robert Redford). Hooray? Latino Review believes this scene will make its way to the final cut, and with the "Agent Carter" tv series coming up, it's a pretty good guess, because it's an easy to way to keep endlessly threading together every single solitary Marvel project. »

Look Who’s Still Talking – The Strange Hollywood History Of John Travolta

15 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

John Travolta is as fascinating and complex a member of the Hollywood fraternity as you could wish for. Iconic performer, experienced pilot, vocal Scientologist and mangler of pronunciation of Idina Menzel.

He has managed to appear in not just some of the best known, but also some of the best-full-stop films of the past forty years – Saturday Night Fever, Carrie, Grease, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty, Face/Off, The Thin Red Line, Hairspray and the upcoming Gummy Bear The Movie – whatever one might think of the consistency of his output (and there have been some horrendous misfires), it is hard to imagine too many actors playing Danny Zuko, Vincent Vega, Castor Troy, Sean Archer, Chili Palmer and Edna Turnblad with equal conviction.

After the temporary resuscitation of Look Who’s Talking turned out to be a false dawn, Tarantino did Travolta a favour of inestimable proportions by casting him in Pulp Fiction, »

Will 'Ant-Man' Feature a Number of 'Captain America' Characters?

14 August 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When director Edgar Wright surprisingly left the Marvel Phase Three adventure Ant-Man, creative differences were cited as the reason for his departure. Apparently, one of those differences was Marvel wanted the writer-director to insert more characters from the existing Marvel Cinematic Universe into the story, which reportedly starts in the 1960s with a young Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) fighting Communism. There may be spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Latino Review reports that some of the existing characters in an earlier script are Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), Armin Zola (Toby Jones) and a young Alexander Pierce, the character played by Robert Redford in this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The scene involves a meeting at S.H.I.E.L.D. which Hank attends with these characters, although it isn't known why exactly they are meeting.

The site speculates that the scene »

Guess Who Might Cameo In "Ant-Man"?

14 August 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst there has been plenty of talk about which characters and superheroes might pop up in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," there's been hardly any such speculation about Marvel's upcoming "Ant-Man" film which has been seen as more of a standalone project.

That changes today with a report from Latino Review that talks about the revisions to Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish's script for the film. It seems amongst the earliest of those revisions was a way to better integrate the film into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In earlier drafts of the script, the first act prologue reportedly has the younger version of Michael Douglas' Hank Pym character having a meeting at S.H.I.E.L.D during its early stages (it's not made clear what time period this is). There he meets up with "Captain America: The First Avenger" characters Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Armin Zola and. »

Several McU cameos rumoured for Marvel’s Ant-Man

14 August 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If reports are to be believed, one of the “creative differences” between Marvel and Edgar Wright on Ant-Man was said to be the studio’s desire to further integrate the film into the Marvel Cinematic Universe by incorporating a few familiar faces from the McU into his script, and according to Latino-Review, they have the inside track on which characters this concerned.

According to the site, an early draft of the script included a prologue that saw Hank Pym meeting with S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Howard Stark, Peggy Carter and Arnim Zola, in addition to a young Alexander Pierce. Presumably this would allow Dominic Cooper, Hayley Atwell and Toby Jones to reprise their roles, with younger actors stepping in for Michael Douglas and Robert Redford.

As always, mark this one as a rumour, but if true how would you feel about those characters making an appearance in Ant-Man? »

Past Marvel Characters Rumored To Appear In Ant-Man

14 August 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel’s Ant-Man begins shooting in Atlanta, Georgia this week (under the code-name “Bigfoot), and we still know very little about it. That’s in no small part due to the highly controversial exit of fan-favorite director Edgar Wright, who’s been replaced by Yes Man‘s Peyton Reed, and the handful of script changes that proceeded it.

The film stands in the unique position of being a bit separate from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because of its central characters being new additions to the franchise with no ties to previous Marvel films. It does, however, offer up some flashback opportunities due to the inclusion of an older Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas.

From what we know about the film so far, Pym is the original Ant-Man, who passes the torch to Paul Rudd’s character Scott Lang after his former business partner, Darren Cross (the villain Yellowjacket, »

Which McU characters might we see in Marvel's 'Ant-Man'

14 August 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

What's good folks! Quick cool tidbit to share.

Remember when Marvel wanted Edgar Wright to insert more McU characters into Ant-Man

We found out who those characters might be.

The following is considered spoilerish so if you don't want to know don't read below.

In earlier drafts of the script, Hank Pym in the first act prologue has a meeting at S.H.I.E.L.D and meets up with Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Armin Zola, and here is a cool one...

...a young Alexander Pierce.

Alexander Pierce was the bad guy played by Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

It was a pretty cool scene, and with the Agent Carter TV series around the corner, it's a clever way to tie in the TV show with the upcoming movie. Adam McKay did a pass on the script while Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari are currently on set doing production rewrites. »
