Watch Wild Trailer for Warren Beatty's First Movie in 18 Years

14 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Warren Beatty's long-in-the-works movie about Howard Hughes, Rules Don't Apply, has been given its first star-studded trailer.

The upbeat clip blends historical fiction and rom-com (à la Woody Allen's recent films) and finds Beatty playing the obsessive-compulsive mogul as an eccentric billionaire goofball — a far cry from Leonardo DiCaprio's portrayal of Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 biopic, The Aviator.

While Beatty scores several laugh lines in the trailer ("Billionaire, goddammit, not millionaire," he grumbles while watching footage of himself, "and what the hell happened to the close-up of me in the cockpit? »

Watch: First Trailer for 'Rules Don't Apply' Directed by Warren Beatty

14 July 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"In this town, aren't those the rules?" Fox has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Rules Don't Apply, the latest feature directed by Warren Beatty since Bulworth in 1998. Beatty also stars in this as Howard Hughes, who contracts a young actress - played by Lily Collins - to work for him in Los Angeles. When she arrives, she meets her personal driver played by Alden Ehrenreich (who will next be playing a young Han Solo in the spin-off) and falls for him, but can't break Hughes' rule of having a relationship with an employee. The full cast includes Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Matthew Broderick, Martin Sheen, Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Steve Coogan. This looks quite fun and especially charming and amusing. It definitely has an old Hollywood feel to it, but not as much as Hail, Caesar. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer for Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply, »

‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Trailer: Warren Beatty Stars as Howard Hughes In 1950’s Hollywood Rom-Com

14 July 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warren Beatty’s new romantic comedy “Rules Don’t Apply” follows an aspiring actress, a lovable driver, and the eccentric Hollywood legend Howard Hughes (played by Beatty himself) as they struggle with each other’s own idiosyncrasies. Set in Hollywood in 1958, small town beauty queen and Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins) arrives to Los Angeles to work under Howard Hughes. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), a religious Methodist who’s engaged to be married to his middle school sweetheart. Soon they fall for each other, and their attraction puts their respective religious convictions to the test, and also places them in violation of Hughes’ #1 rule: No employee will have a relationship with a contract actress. But as Hughes’ behavior becomes more erratic and strange, it intersects with Marla and Frank’s lives in challenging, compelling ways, leaving no one unchanged. The film also »

Following the gorgeous trailer for his long-awaited Voyage of Time and news that he’ll start shooting his next feature this month, today we have a look at another project from Terrence Malick. Martin Sheen, reteaming with the director over four decades after Badlands (although he was cut out of The Thin Red Line), leads the drama The Vessel, which is produced by Malick (along with frequent collaborator Sarah Green) and directed by Julio Quintana.

Ahead of a a release this September, the first trailer has landed today for the drama which follows Sheen as Father Douglas, a Catholic priest in a Latin American town, still rebuilding ten years after a tsunami. With a score by Malick regular Hanan Townshend, much of the imagery in the trailer will be familiar to fans of the director, though we’ll have to wait and see if it has the same spark.

The 20 Best TV Dramas of the Last 20 Years

16 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like it or not, TV dramas often set the standard for how television eras are remembered. Be it awards attention or Top 10 lists, dramas are looked to as a guide post for where we are, where we’re headed and what’s worth revisiting from the past. Series like “The Americans” and “Mad Men” look back to break down where we are now, while iconic moments in time are captured in series “of the now” like “The Wire” and “The O.C.” Eras matter, in your life and in all our lives, and these 20 series, all premiering in the last 20 years, have defined the past two decades in every aspect imaginable.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1997-2003)

Joss Whedon may have traded the supernatural for superheroes in recent years, but his first series remains his crowning achievement as King of the Nerds. “Buffy” was strong as a whole, with a well-rounded cast, top-notch writing, and a healthy dose of classic Whedon humor, but it’s in examining the series’ most famous episodes that the true genius shines through. Three “Buffy” episodes are widely regarded as some of the best in TV history: the eerily silent “Hush,” featuring only 14 minutes of dialogue and the scariest villains in the entire show; the genuinely catchy musical numbers of “Once More With Feeling,” which combined Buffy’s existential crisis with a musical-inducing demon; and “The Body,” a study in overwhelming grief as Buffy and her friends deal with the death of her mother. While “Buffy” may not be as critically acclaimed as other shows on this list, it redefined the supernatural genre, paving the way for countless other shows — none of which have lived up to to the original vampiric cult favorite. – Kate Halliwell

“Oz” (1997-2003)

Given how much attention is given to early HBO dramas “The Sopranos” and “The Wire,” it’s almost criminal just how overlooked “Oz” has become. Critics adore it, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find any “Game Of Thrones” or “Breaking Bad” fans who have seen a single episode. Ironically, “Oz” paved the way for nearly every Golden Age TV drama in its path. So much of what we’ve come to expect from TV drama — antiheroes, brutal violence, moral ambiguities, the fearless disposal of main characters — was born at the Oswald State Correctional Facility, where racial, sexual, and economic conflicts within the prison system gave way to some of the most complex characters TV has ever seen. Each episode, co-written by creator Tom Fontana, dynamically weaves a single theme through both the present storyline and flashbacks revealing inmates’ unspeakable crimes, all narrated by Harold Perrineau Jr.’s Augustus Hill with a lyrical slam pulse. “Orange Is The New Black” has used this format in recent years to create its own memorable world, but it could only dream of hitting as viscerally as “Oz.” At times brutally grounded and surreally poetic, the show uses its fictional environment as a microcosm for our society at large, showing how the divides and conflicts manifested in prison first start in the neighborhoods we live in. “Oz” has a burdensome power that you have to reckon with. – Zack Shark

Queer as Folk” (UK) (1999-2000)

With this intimate look at gay life in Manchester, England, creator Russell T. Davies brought joy, wit and pathos to the stories of Stuart (Aiden Gillen), Vince (Craig Kelly) and Nathan (Charlie Hunnam) as they struggled to find love in the city’s vibrant club scene. Balancing “Doctor Who” references with surprisingly explicit love scenes (yeah, look at that cast list again — some of the show’s hottest sex features “Game of Thrones'” Littlefinger and baby Jax Teller from “Sons of Anarchy), the original “Queer as Folk” was groundbreaking for British television and even game-changing for the U.S., when Showtime created an American adaptation that ran from 2000-2005. While short-lived in comparison to the remake, the original version remains singular and iconic. – Liz Shannon Miller

The West Wing” (1999-2006)

Here’s the pitch: A young, close knit group of Presidential staffers fight the good fight, with episodes centering around wonky debates over sexy topics like the census, foreign aid, and nuclear energy. Hard to believe, but it was a formula that that led Aaron Sorkin’s NBC drama to capture an audience of over 20 million weekly viewers and four consecutive Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series. Mixing the hard realities of modern politics and Sorkin’s romantic belief that a dedicated group of passionate people can bring about positive change, the show was equal parts entertaining and educational. Predictably, the show teetered after its fourth season, when Sorkin and his playful dialogue moved on, but under the leadership of showrunner John Wells the “West Wing” successfully reinvented itself with longer, more sober story arcs centered around characters’ existential/career crises and an oddly prescient election to replace President Jed Bartlet (Martin Sheen), which predicted so many real-life political stories, including the 2008 match-up between Senators Obama and McCain. – Chris O’Falt

The Sopranos” (1999-2007)

The greatness of “The Sopranos” cannot be overstated. Its lavish praise will never be hyperbolic. HBO, for all its excellent offerings, will never do anything better. David Chase’s six-season mob drama is equal parts American opus and Shakespearean drama, one that encompasses the grand spectrum of human emotion and experience (especially as it applies to strip club-loving tough guys) through the tight lens of what could be a slightly alienating focus. Mobsters have long entertained American audiences, but to distill the crime drama down to a series that is just as concerned with domestic troubles as it is with Mafia-related violence is bold indeed. Or, in other words: It’s just really, really good (and super entertaining). “The Sopranos” never shied away from its roots as a show about the mob, but it also fully embraced the kind suburban ennui that made Tony Soprano — a larger than life character — feel oddly relatable and often even kind of lovable. While Chase’s series is hardly in danger of being forgotten or maligned, its divisive final shot is often the subject of close reads that forget to acknowledge the kind of subtlety and power that ran through the entire series. It’s not just Tony’s last meal (maybe) that deserves a deep dive. It’s the entire series. – Kate Erbland

Melanie Mayron On Directing ‘Jane the Virgin,’ ‘Grace and Frankie’ and Age In Hollywood

9 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy-winning actress Melanie Mayron may still be best known as Melissa Steadman from the ABC hit “thirtysomething,” but she’s had a steady career as a TV director ever since that ’90s drama. This season she helmed four installments of “Jane the Virgin” (and appeared on camera in the recurring role of Professor Donaldson), plus episodes of “Grace and Frankie,” “Faking It” and “Pretty Little Liars.”

What made you interested in directing?

Back in 1976, Claudia Weill directed a movie called “Girlfriends.” It seemed like everybody was out of film school. The energy was so amazing, I was like, “Oh my god, filmmaking is incredible.” When I got on “thirtysomething,” all the guys were lining up [to direct] and I asked every season. They let me do [two episodes]. All of a sudden my agent booked me in all this TV directing. I said, “How come I got so many jobs?” He said, “Good gets you the job. »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Since 2010, the Emmy for supporting actor in a comedy has been shared between two shows, “Modern Family” and “Veep.” Tony Hale looks like a sure bet to score another nom after two wins, though the “Veep” ensemble is so strong, the entire category could comprise actors on the show. Likewise, the “Modern Family” cast is flawless, though two-time winners Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell have thus far been rewarded while Ed O’Neill and Jesse Tyler Ferguson have not.

Another great TV family can be found on “Transparent,” which could benefit Jay Duplass. Likewise, Laurence Fishburne is a standout as the grandfather on “Black-ish.”

And while technically not related, the supporting actors who make up the dysfunctional family of “Silicon Valley” are an embarrassment of riches — T.J. Miller should score a nomination just for his scene in episode four in which he delivers his lines while coughing and laughing simultaneously after a harsh bong hit. »
