We’ve heard very, very little about the latest film from Oscar favorite Stephen Daldry, who previously directed Billy Elliot, The Hours, The Reader and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (every film the director has been involved with has either been nominated for Best Director or Best Picture), but today brings the arrival of the first trailer for Trash, certainly a grittier and more unconventional venture from the helmer.
The movie, based on the book by Andy Mulligan, and scripted by About Time screenwriter Richard Curtis, tells the story of three street kids who survive by rummaging through a huge trash fill on the outskirts of a major city, searching through human waste and filth in hopes of finding food and other items necessary for their survival. One day, one of them finds a small leather bag with a wallet with some money and an ID card, a folded-up map, »

Going through a discarded wallet looking for money, they find some mysterious documents instead. The wallet was flung into a dump by a man (Wagner Moura) fleeing from cops, »

I have been pruning my 2015 Oscar predictions lately and I almost removed Stephen Daldry's Trash from my Best Picture predictions... good thing I didn't as the first trailer for the film has been released suggesting we're likely to hear it announced as part of one of the upcoming fall film festivals if not several. Given this version comes from Universal Brazil (where the film actually opens in October) it doesn't exactly give us an idea of where it might show up though as part of tomorrow's announcement of the first wave of Toronto Film Festival features would be a good guess. The film, which stars Rooney Mara,follows three boys in a third world country who scrape a living by picking through trash. One day they find a leather bag, the contents of which plunge them into a terrifying adventure, pitting their wits against corruption and authority to right a wrong. »

Here's the deal: if you see a trailer this week for a prestige, awards contender-seeming movie, the chances are you'll likely see it somewhere on the fall festival slate. And so, even though we weren't quite sure where Stephen Daldry's "Trash" would fit on the calendar, it's done, in the can, a trailer is here, and now you can see if the Oscar race is being shaken up. Based on the book by Andy Mulligan, with a script from Richard Curtis ("Love Actually," "About Time") and starring Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura along with newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein, the story concerns three street kids who survive by picking through a mostly human waste-filled garbage dump on the outskirts of a large city. One day, one of them finds a small leather bag with a wallet with some money and an ID card, a folded-up map, »

Netflix has set out to stage an Aaron Sorkin reunion of sorts. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Newsroom’s Sam Waterston has been cast in an upcoming comedy for the streaming giant, alongside Jane Fonda (The Newsroom), Lily Tomlin (The West Wing), and Martin Sheen (do I have to say what show Martin Sheen was on? Okay fine, The West Wing).
The show, titled Grace and Frankie, follows two rivals—Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin)—who make amends after they discover that their husbands—Sheen and Waterston, respectively—have been keeping up an affair with each other since 1994 and now plan to legally marry. »

Nr, 1 Hr., 20 Mins.
Directed by Ignacio Ferreras, a disciple of Sylvain Chomet (The Triplets of Belleville), and dubbed into English from Spanish, this animated gem tells a story of friendship in an old folks’ home. Emilio (Martin Sheen) is dumped there by his son after one too many senior moments, while Miguel (George Coe), a white-haired Randle McMurphy, cuts deals and runs the joint. The animation artfully transitions between what is real and what the aging residents think is real. Rare is the “cartoon” that penetrates and even haunts; Wrinkles is not easily forgotten.

Here we are, at the top of the mountain. We’ve had plenty from every war imaginable, some supportive of war efforts, some not. But the more interesting war films really focus on the people; the internal struggles those men and women have about what they are doing. Whether made in America, Germany, the United Kingdom, or anywhere else, war is not just a battle between good and evil. It’s a life and death struggle between opposing sides that may not be that different. The movies at the top of this list may be subtle or straightforward, but each of them is a clear snapshot that lets audiences see what it means to fight, so they don’t have to.
10. Paths of Glory (1957)
Directed by: Stanley Kurbick
Conflict: World War I

Ignacio Ferreras's traditionally animated Wrinkles is a beautiful, subtle horror movie about the rigors of old age, made all the more horrifying because it will happen to all of us fortunate enough to live a long life.
It's been tastefully dubbed from Spanish into English, with all the original signage and typography remaining in Spanish, appropriate enough for such a universal story.
Former bank manager Emilio (Martin Sheen) is none too happy when his family ships him off to a retirement home in the emotional but quick-witted animated film Wrinkles. But then he meets his scheming, know-it-all roommate Miguel (George Coe), and this new chapter begins to take on a life and an energy all its own as they navigate the tricky waters of life in the home.
Described as One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in an old folks home, Wrinkles is based on Paco Roca’s popular graphic novel. Director Ignacio Ferreras released the hand-drawn animated pic in Spanish in 2011 to great acclaim, »

Top twenty. Now we start to see the more widely recognizable films that people have some emotional attachment to. World War II gets a few mentions in this portion of the list, but this is one of the more diverse sections, overall. We get a mention of the Boer War, the Algerian War, and the Korean War, as well as the only movie about the American Civil War on this list.
20. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943)
Conflict: Boer War, World War I, World War II
The only film on the list that spans multiple wars is also probably the least battle-focused film on the list. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp is told through an extended flashback, following Major-General Clive Wynne-Candy (Roger Livesey) as he rises through the ranks of the British military from war to war. The flashback is »

Since Sledgehammer Games’ Vietnam-set Call of Duty title was canned late last year, we’ve gradually learned more and more about the ominous, never-to-be-seen game. And today, a trio of concept images have appeared online detailing some of the ideas behind the third-person spinoff.
In truth, the stills, which come courtesy of entertainment designer Eddie Del Rio, paint a bleak, Apocalypse Now-like picture of the studio’s shelved property. The stark visual style coupled with the jungle setting hints at a Call of Duty campaign that never was; all that seemed to be missing was a solemn voiceover from Martin Sheen.
Speaking with Cvg, the company’s co-founder Glen Schofield touched upon the thematic elements of the title, which would have taken inspiration from another reputable franchise that Schofield worked on while at Visceral Games.

Sheen will join the ensemble of "Grace and Frankie," a series focusing on the titular women, played by Fonda and Tomlin, respectively. The pair hate each other, but are unexpectedly united when their husbands fall in love with each other, and inform their wives that they plan to wed.
Sheen will play Robert, the husband of Tomlin's character. He most recently flexed his comedy chops with a guest-starring role on the FX comedy series "Anger Management," which is headlined by his son, Charlie Sheen.
"Grace and Frankie" has an impressive creative group behind it, including "Friends" co-creator Marta Kauffman, who wrote and co-created the series alongside Howard J. Morris ("According to Jim," "Home Improvement"). Fonda and Tomlin are co-producing, and Tate Taylor, »
