A poster for Stephen Daldry's Trash has premiered and it's ... not good. What is with the running and jumping happy children in a trash dump and that tagline -- "You never know what you might find"c The kid in the middle is clearly happy, and the one on the right looks as if he is on the same track, but not so much with my man on the left. I guess he didn't get the memo, or he didn't find anything too great in the trash, maybe a hypodermic needle, maybe he was an extra in Honeybucket: The Movie, (which, oddly enough, had the same tagline) and they just reused him for this poster, or maybe he's the the only one representing the film's plot. For some context, Trash follows these three boys in Brazil as they scrape a living by picking through trash. One day they find a leather bag, »

David Nevins, Showtime prexy, said in an official statement:
“Both Ray Donovan and Masters of Sex are quintessentially Showtime: bold, provocative, premium television with production values at the top of the food chain. These acclaimed shows are filled with complex and interesting characters and settings that will no doubt give audiences compelling television to invest in for seasons to come.”
Masters of Sex, about human sex pioneers William Masters (Martin Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), has been roundly acclaimed since its premiere, and this year it received five Emmy nominations, including one for Caplan’s performance. Already, it won Guest Actress in a Drama for Allison Janney’s heartbreaking turn at Saturday’s Creative Arts Emmys.

After a string of small parts in Roger Corman B movies during the mid to late ’50s, he began guesting on Westerns such as “Zane Grey Theater,” “Have Gun — Will Travel,” “The Rifleman,” “Maverick,” “Rawhide” and “Gunsmoke” plus other series such as “Twilight Zone,” “The Untouchables, »

August is upon us, which invariably means withering heat and a hell of a lot of bad cinema. Worn out by the time the dog days hit, the studios enter hibernation mode, concerned mostly with counting their early summer blockbuster returns (or licking their wounds). There's hope around the corner — the fall festivals loom — but that moment isn't here yet. The last month of summer is usually barren.
Except when it isn't.
It certainly wasn't 35 years ago — August 15, 1979, to be exact, when Francis Ford Coppola »
Cult movie classic ‘Pretty Poison’ filmmaker Noel Black dead at 77 (photo: Tuesday Weld and Anthony Perkins in ‘Pretty Poison’) Noel Black, best remembered for the 1968 cult movie classic Pretty Poison, died of pneumonia at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on July 5, 2014. Black (born on June 30, 1937, in Chicago) was 77. Prior to Pretty Poison, Noel Black earned praise for the 18-minute short film Skaterdater (1965), the tale of a boy skateboarder who falls for a girl bike rider. Shot on the beaches of Los Angeles County, the dialogue-less Skaterdater went on to win the Palme d’Or for Best Short Film and tied with Orson Welles’ Falstaff - Chimes at Midnight for the Technical Grand Prize at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival. Besides, Skaterdater received an Academy Award nomination in the Best Short Subject, Live Action category.

Hey girl, we need this chair. Jane Fonda killed the seat game on Thursday, Aug. 7, when she was seen on the set of her new television show carrying a chair with Ryan Gosling's face on it. The celebrated actress, 76, is currently filming Grace and Frankie, a Netflix comedy series with Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen, and Brooklyn Decker, which is set to make its debut next year. While working on the project in California, she was snapped with an item honoring America's collective boyfriend. Wearing black trousers, [...] »
Jane Fonda is currently filming Grace and Frankie, an upcoming Netflix series in which she stars opposite Lily Tomlin. The cast also includes Martin Sheen, Sam Waterston, Brooklyn Decker, Ethan Embry, June Diane Raphael — and, most important, this majestic Ryan Gosling chair. (You can buy one yourself, should the spirit so move you.) Fonda and Tomlin play longtime rivals who find their lives intertwined when their husbands (Sheen and Waterston) announce they've been having an affair. Unclear how exactly the Gosling chair works into the story, but does it really matter? »

With the home-entertainment release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 just around the corner, a deleted scene from the Spidey sequel featuring Peter Parker and Harry Osborn has turned up online, as well as an alternate ending which shows Peter’s dad Richard Parker popping up – alive – to deliver the famous “with great power…” line; take a look below…
We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man.
For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen. But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. »

Few filmmakers have the Oscar pedigree of Stephen Daldry, whose past works include Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (all of which have been nominated for Best Picture and/or Best Director). And so, though his upcoming film Trash doesn’t yet have a U.S. release date, it would be foolhardy to count it out of this year’s awards race.
In the film, scripted by Richard Curtis (About Time), “three poverty-stricken boys who discover something unusual, mysterious, and dangerous in a city dump.” The latest trailer for Trash, released through Universal Pictures Brazil, certainly maintains the thrilling, adventurous vibe that the film’s first preview gave off.
Though I can honestly claim to understand less than one-fifth of this international trailer, the Slumdog Millionaire-esque tone and impressive visuals paint Trash as another fascinating work from Daldry. And with Rooney Mara and »

Anna Gunn could very well win her second consecutive Emmy for Breaking Bad in about three weeks on the West Coast—but right now, she’s laying down some East Coast roots in Sex With Strangers, a new drama directed by David Schwimmer. The role is only the actress’s second major New York City stage part (she was in the supporting cast of The Rehearsal opposite Frances Conroy and Roger Rees back on Broadway in 1996), but the reviews for her and costar Billy Magnussen (soon to be seen in the long-awaited film of James Lapine/Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods; by the way, »

I’m not sure where I come down on this Trash trailer, in part because I can only understand about 10% of it. Universal Pictures Brazil has released an international trailer for the film, directed by Stephen Daldry and written by British rom-com maestro Richard Curtis. In the film, “three poverty-stricken boys who discover something unusual, mysterious, and dangerous in a city dump.” The trailer has some slick visuals and a tone that reminds me of Slumdog Millionaire in the way that it places children in sort of a “safe” feeling criminal world. Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara star alongside Wagner Moura (Elysium) and Selton Mello. Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis, and Gabriel Weinstein play the three young boys at the center of the mystery. Hit the jump to check out the Trash trailer. The film is based on the novel by Andy Mulligan. There is no word yet on a U. »

So the trailer for Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” is out there. Set in Brazil, it chronicles impoverished street kids who find themselves involved in a political scandal when they make a discovery in a garbage dump. Soon the trio are running from the cops and trying to right a terrible wrong. It stars Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen as an Ngo worker and priest, respectively, and highlights a triad of young Brazilian boys played by Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein. And yes, these non-actor discoveries are actually the leads with the Americans providing the support (Brazilians Wagner Moura and Selton Mello also co-star). “The three lead actors in the film have never acted in a film before, they’ve never been to a cinema before,” Daldry said in a recent interview with Screen Daily. "The reason I made this film is because it’s about the underbelly, the difficult side of Rio, »
