Oscar Season Preview

14 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Now that summer movie season is over, it’s Oscar season. During winter and fall many Oscar-hopeful movies are released. This is our overview of what you can expect leading up to the 2015 Oscars. 

For fans of film, fall and winter are the best times of the year. This is when, typically, some of the most well-received films are released. Unofficially, we call it Oscar Season, and there’s good reason that the year’s best films are saved for last. Any film released before the end of the year is eligible for Oscar nomination. Therefore, if you release your film towards the end of the year, it will be fresher in audience and critic minds when awards time rolls around in early March/late February (February 22nd, 2015 to be exact).

In preparation for the fall and winter movie season, we’ve put together this preview of films that have been getting lots of attention. »

Season finale review: 'Masters of Sex' - 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised'

28 September 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Masters of Sex" has wrapped up another season. I spoke with showrunner Michelle Ashford about various decisions that went into this year's stories, and I have a review of the finale coming up just as soon as I have all the gravitas of a toothpaste commercial... "God, what if you just let go of everything you thought your life would be? What if we both did? What then?" -Libby Season 1 of "Masters of Sex" built to a very public display of Bill and Virginia's work that got an ugly reception, followed by Bill being open about his feelings to Virginia. For a while, season 2 seemed like it was building to a parallel of that with the taping of the CBS News segment, but instead "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" is the opposite of last year's finale. Bill conspires to kill the CBS feature before it can air because he's paranoid of repeating history, »

Before Sharknado there was Leprechaun…

26 September 2014 9:31 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

All the Warwick Davis Leprechaun movies are coming out in a new Blu Ray combo pack. The commentary tracks offer some memories of my two contributions to the guilty pleasure franchise. Here are a few more.

I grew up enjoying the absurdist humor of the Monty Python’s Flying Circus TV series. So why not Absurdist Cinema? I loved the 1941 Hellzapoppin’, an early iconic example. The concept of the mid ’90’s Leprechaun franchise was proudly ludicrous – pint sized Jason/Freddy/Chucky amalgam with an Irish twist terrorizes and kills most of the supporting cast. But he was never really scary. I decided to embrace the absurd and make it as much fun as the formula allowed.

 

Blue Rider Pictures, for whom I had made Night Of The Demons 2, were asked by Trimark to produce the third and, at that stage, the intended last in the series. Send the little guy to Vegas, »

Hollywood Heads to Broadway

16 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ To Close Rio Festival

6 September 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stephen Daldry’s Universal-distribbed “Trash,” his awaited venture into Brazilian filmmaking and teen-thriller territory, will close the 2014 Rio de Janeiro Festival on Oct. 7.

Trash” stars Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Brazil’s Wagner Moura (“Elite Troop”) plus actor-director Selton Mello (“The Clown”).

The gala screening will mark “Trash’s” world premiere, a matter of import for Oscar pundits given Daldry’s Academy Award track record: “Billy Elliot,” “The Hours” and “The Reader” all snagged Best Director noms, “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” made the Best Picture cut.

Written by Richard Curtis and Felipe Braga, “Trash” also reps Daldry’s first teen adventure thriller, and a pioneering Brazil, U.K. co-production which melds top echelon talent from Brazil and the U.K. while staking out Brazil as its home market.

An adaptation of Brit Andy Mulligan’s novel, and set on a massive landfill outside Rio, “Trash” is produced by London’s »

Telluride kicks off with a tribute to a masterpiece

30 August 2014 1:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — While press and patrons were hustling into gondolas and over to the Chuck Jones Cinema for the World Premiere of Jean-Marc Vallée's "Wild," the 41st annual Telluride Film Festival was kicking off with a bang at an over-stuffed Werner Herzog Theater for the lead program of this year's schedule: a tribute to Francis Ford Coppola's "Apocalypse Now." The ticket was so hot that well over a hundred pass holders were turned away at the door. In introducing a new Dcp of the original theatrical cut of the film (supervised for Coppola himself), Telluride co-founder Tom Luddy said it was noteworthy the event was unfolding at the Herzog, as "Apocalypse Now" holds a fair share of homages to Herzog's "Aguirre the Wrath of God," which screened at the fest last year to dedicate the new venue.

Critically-acclaimed director Stephen Daldry (The Hours, The Reader) returns to the big screen with Trash.

Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura and Selton Mello star in this upcoming drama, which doesn't have a domestic release date set at this time.

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping on it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, the world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything.

New Trailer For Trash Looks Like A Brazilian Slumdog Millionaire

27 August 2014 2:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If your film is named Trash, it better be pretty great, or it will instantly be fodder for reviewers upon release. The good news is that Stephen Daldry’s latest effort, starring Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and three newcomers who could have a bright future in Hollywood, looks terrific, a mix of gritty slum story and inspirational drama. In other words, this could be the new Slumdog Millionaire and it already comes from a director who has danced with Oscar nominations before.

Trash could also easily be up for foreign language film at this year’s Academy Awards, since 80 percent of it is in Portuguese (the rest is in English). The film is based off a best-selling novel by Andy Mulligan, which follows three kids living in a Rio slum who find a wallet filled with money and valuables connecting to officials in power.

New International Trash Trailer Features Rooney Mara Opposite Three Young Newcomers

27 August 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

That international trailer for Stephen Daldry’s Trash that dropped just about a month ago did offer up a solid preview of the film’s style and tone, but it’s much nicer when you can actually understand the dialogue.  This latest promo is in English and has subtitles when it’s not, offering up a much clearer picture of the trouble that Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), Gardo (Eduardo Luis) and Raphael (Rickson Tevez) get themselves into after finding a bag in the dump. The details on why what’s inside the bag could change the nation aren’t particularly clear, but the trio is likable and engaging enough to inspire you to believe in and get behind what they’re fighting for.  Hit the jump to check out the new Trash trailer for yourself.  The film also stars Martin Sheen, Rooney Mara, Wagner Moura and Selton Mello, and is due »

On the heels of the new picture from Serena we have a new trailer for another film that would seem like a solid Oscar contender and yet we've heard nothing about a stateside release. Set to premiere at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival at the end of September, followed by an October 9 release in Brazil, we have a new trailer for Stephen Daldry's Trash. Trash features Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura in the middle of a story following three boys (Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein) 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. This is the second trailer we've seen for the film, but this one at least has subtitles as we now have an »
