Trash Gets A New Trailer

31 August 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Trash follows three Brazilian street teenagers; Raphael, Gardo, and Rat (Jun-Jun) who spend their time picking through litter in the hope of finding useful waste. One day they discover a wallet whose contents will bring them into conflict with the brutal local police force as they find themselves unlikely whistleblowers in a city rife with corruption. Rather than turn the wallet over to the authorities for a reward, the kids seek the confidence of a priest, Father Juilliard (Martin Sheen) and an Ngo-worker, Olivia (Rooney Mara). The new movie stars Wagner Moura, Selton Mello, Rooney Mara, and Martin Sheen. “Trash” hits theaters on October 9.

Scorsese (Costly) Short Featuring the Director, DiCaprio, and De Niro Has Been Pulled from Venice Festival

'The Audition' poster with Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Martin Scorsese short 'The Audition' pulled from Venice Film Festival No major international film festival is worth its mainstream U.S. media salt unless there's at least one screening featuring the latest work of a major Hollywood name. The Venice Film Festival is surely no exception, especially as it's the year's final internationally renowned European movie fest, held shortly before the fall – i.e., awards – movie season begins. Well, one work by a top Hollywood name will no longer be available at Venice: The Audition, a short film directed by and featuring veteran Martin Scorsese, has been pulled out. "We have just been informed by the production that due to unexpected technical problems the film could not be here in time," festival organizers said in a statement earlier today, Sat., Aug. 29, '15.

Uplifting Trailer For Trash Showcases The Less Glamorous Side Of Rio De Janeiro

27 August 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Yahoo has debuted the maiden and indeed uplifting trailer for Stephen Daldry’s slum drama, Trash, following thee young children – played by Rickson Tevez, Gabriel Weinstein, and Luis Eduardo – who while away the hours on one of Rio de Janeiro’s infamous dumps.

Highlighting the decidedly less glamorous side of the Brazilian mega-city, the footage is an riveting tease of the feature film, which sees the aforementioned trio stumble upon a wallet that is considered important to some of the most powerful people in the area. Filmed in and around Rio’s favelas, the first Trash clip evokes a similar mise-en-scene to City of God, though we’ll be truly surprised if Daldry’s picture can capture even a fraction of the emotional punch as the 2003 classic.

There’s also some familiar faces cast alongside the relative unknowns, with Trash also making room for Martin Sheen, Rooney Mara, and Wagner Moura. »

Trailer for Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ keeps focus away from supporting cast

27 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Hours and The Reader director Stephen Daldry is back with a new project, this one set in the slums of Rio.

Titled Trash, the film is Daldry’s fifth feature-length directorial effort. The film itself is an adaptation of Andy Mulligan’s 2010 novel, with three newcomers in the lead roles in Luis Eduardo, Rickson Tevez, and Gabriel Weinstein. Richard Curtis wrote the screenplay, and the supporting cast includes Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, and Rooney Mara.

The film’s synopsis is as follows:

When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael and Gardo, realize that what they’ve found must be important.

This is Daldry’s first »

Watch: New Us Trailer for Stephen Daldry's 'Trash' Film Set in Brazil

26 August 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Through all of that, why did they stick with it?" "Because it was right." An official Us trailer has debuted for the film Trash, directed by Stephen Daldry, co-directed by Christian Duurvoort, about three kids in Brazil who find something in the trash that changes their lives. We've been posting about this film for a while already, featuring a couple of different trailers over the years. What we saw back then was much more like a City of God, with the story of kids growing up within the crazy world of Brazil. This trailer looks much more mainstream, with some familiar faces that speak English to help guide us through the story. Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen are in this, along with Wagner Moura. I'm still very interested in seeing this. Here's the new official Us trailer for Stephen Daldry's Trash, originally from Yahoo: When two trash-picking boys from »

Watch: First U.S. Trailer For Stephen Daldry’s ‘Trash’ Starring Rooney Mara, Wagner Moura & Martin Sheen

26 August 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Stephen Daldry occupies a rarefied position. He is one of the few filmmakers to have been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director four times in a row and for his first four films: “Billy Elliott,” “The Hours,” “The Reader” and “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” (three of the four were also nominated for Best Picture). Perhaps after years of Oscar-bait material —he has directed six actors in Oscar-nominated performances, namely Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman, Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, and Max von Sydow— Daldry has switched gears for “Trash” a movie set in the slums of Rio with big stars cast in supporting roles.

Patricia Richardson on SAG-aftra Election: ‘Ken Howard Does Not Get a Mandate’

21 August 2015 6:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SAG-aftra’s political battles are going to intensify in the wake of an improved showing in Thursday’s election by the opposition Membership First faction.

Ken Howard was re-elected to a two-year term to the presidency over “Home Improvement” star Patricia Richardson with 53.7% of the vote with 16,233 votes to Richardson’s 13,976 — a margin far closer than in the 2013 race when Howard handily defeated Esai Morales.

And Howard’s running mate Jenny O’Hara lost to Membership First’s Jane Austin for the secretary-treasurer slot. Austin also defeated Howard’s ally Clyde Kusatsu for the presidency of the Los Angeles local.

Ken Howard does not get a mandate from this election,” Richardson told Variety. “This puts a lot more pressure on him to push harder in negotiations.”

Howard’s Unite For Strength slate has dominated SAG-aftra since it was created in 2012 and in the last three years of SAG. The actor, »

Ken Howard Re-Elected SAG-AFTRA President

20 August 2015 7:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ken Howard has been re-elected as SAG-AFTRA president for a two-year term following a spirited challenge by Patricia Richardson with 53.7% of the vote to Richardson’s 46.3%.

But Howard’s running mate, Jenny O’Hara, was defeated by stunt performer Jane Austin for the secretary-treasurer slot as Austin won with 52.7%. Current secretary-treasurer Amy Aquino, who had Howard’s running mate in three previous elections, opted not to seek re-election to the post.

Turnout was just under 22%, a typical rate in elections for the performer union. Of the 139,313 eligible voters mailed ballots  on July 21, a total of 30,263 voted.

Howard, 71, led the moderate Unite for Strength faction that has been in control of the performers union for the past six years. Richardson headed the self-styled progressives of the Membership First faction.

Howard became the 25th and final SAG president in 2009 and was re-elected in 2011 on a platform urging the merger of SAG and AFTRA. »

Lily Tomlin on Coming-Out Press Conferences & Kicking Nat Wolff's Ass

In 2014, Michelle Obama and Tom Hanks toasted Lily Tomlin's lifetime achievement at the Kennedy Center — an honor that didn't mark the end of her career so much as kick off a comeback. Nearly five decades after her debut on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, the 75 year-old is hot: Her Netflix show Grace and Frankie, costarring Jane Fonda, was just renewed for a second season and helped Tomlin earn her 22nd Emmy nomination.

Neal Doesn't Stand Still as Earth Stops, Fascism Rises: Oscar Winner Who Suffered Massive Stroke Is TCM's Star

Patricia Neal ca. 1950. Patricia Neal movies: 'The Day the Earth Stood Still,' 'A Face in the Crowd' Back in 1949, few would have predicted that Gary Cooper's leading lady in King Vidor's The Fountainhead would go on to win a Best Actress Academy Award 15 years later. Patricia Neal was one of those performers – e.g., Jean Arthur, Anne Bancroft – whose film career didn't start out all that well, but who, by way of Broadway, managed to both revive and magnify their Hollywood stardom. As part of its “Summer Under the Stars” series, Turner Classic Movies is dedicating Sunday, Aug. 16, '15, to Patricia Neal. This evening, TCM is showing three of her best-known films, in addition to one TCM premiere and an unusual latter-day entry. 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' Robert Wise was hardly a genre director.

SAG-aftra’s Ken Howard-Patricia Richardson Contest Intensifies

14 August 2015 4:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With final voting less than a week away, the contest for the SAG-aftra presidency between Ken Howard and Patricia Richardson has gone into the trench warfare stage.

Richardson, best known as the star of “Home Improvement,” has largely eschewed attacking Howard during the two months since declaring her candidacy but has become perturbed over campaign assertions by Howard’s Unite For Strength faction that Richardson’s allies in the Membership First faction never closed any “major new contracts.”

“What Unite For Strength has done is outrageous and just not fair,” she told Variety. “It’s a lie. We’ve been trying really hard to not attack Ken because we all have the same enemy — the producers, who love this kind of infighting.”

The Membership First website has addressed the issue by listing four contracts that it negotiated while it was in power and asserting on its site, “Contrary to what »

'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara, Gaspar Noe's Love,' 'The Assassin' & Many More Set Fall Release Dates

12 August 2015 1:40 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, the New York Film Festival slate has been announced and with that out of the way, many of those movies can now reveal their release dates.  Gaspar Noe's "Love," Hou Hsiao-hsien's "The Assassin" and perhaps more curiously, Stephen Daldry's almost-forgotten Brazilian favela drama "Trash" co-starring Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen. The movie debuted last fall, but failed to make the fall film festival rounds like many expected (outside of the Rio Film Festival). Instead, the movie will now arrive on October 9th. Gaspar Noe's controversial 3D sex film "Love" finally lands stateside November 6th, and Hou Hsiao-hsien's "The Assassin," a film many thought was a strong contender to win the top prize at Cannes, lands on October 16th.  Also revealed are release dates for Laurie Anderson's latest, Guy Maddin's "The Forbidden Room" and festival favorites from Veronika Franz, Rick Alverson, Jafar Panahi and more. »

New TV Series, New Movie: Just Another Day at the Office With Lily Tomlin

12 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“These are llamas,” says Lily Tomlin, holding up two furry toy replicas for inspection. “Or they might be alpacas. I can’t tell the difference.” It’s a hot August morning, and Tomlin is giving me a tour of her office — a cozy, cluttered, ground-level apartment on a sleepy street in Studio City. “I don’t put much stock in memorabilia,” she warns. Not even the oversize rocking chair, official domain of Edith Ann, Tomlin’s famous, philosophizing 5-year-old from Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In? “Oh, that’s at home,” she assures me. Tomlin decides the little figurines are alpacas, most likely a keepsake from her desk on The West Wing, where her character, a former alpaca farmer, served as executive assistant to Martin Sheen’s President Bartlet for four and a half seasons. We’re in the ad hoc conference room, the same one where Tomlin and the director Paul Weitz »

Hope Runs Deep in New Trailer & Poster for Chilean Miner Drama, 'The 33'

29 July 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was assumed Warner Bros. was hoping for some awards glory when they snatched up The 33 for a November 13 release, but I get the impression they're simply hoping for a small bit of coin when it comes to the Chilean miner drama, though it does star a rather stacked cast. Antonio Banderas, Gabriel Byrne, Jennifer Lopez, Martin Sheen, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, Adriana Barraza, Lou Diamond Phillips and James Brolin all star in the Patricia Riggen feature, which tells the story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped more than 200 stories underground enduring 100 degrees Fahrenheit beneath a megaton boulder for 69 days following the collapse of the San Jose copper and gold mine back in 2010. The film, which is a never before seen look at what happened deep inside that mine and chronicles the disaster, the heroic efforts to reach the miners, and the subsequent successful rescue of all 33 men. »

Ed Harris, Martin Sheen Endorse Patricia Richardson for SAG-aftra Presidency

22 July 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Patricia Richardson’s challenge to SAG-aftra president Ken Howard has attracted endorsements from Elliot Gould, Valerie Harper, Ed Harris, Robert Hays, Amy Madigan, Ken McCord, Nick Nolte, Martin Sheen and Nancy Sinatra.

About 140,000 ballots went out this week to the SAG-aftra membership, with results due to be tabulated on Aug. 20. Richardson, best known as Tim Allen’s co-star on “Home Improvement,” announced her candidacy on June 25 as head of the self-styled progressive Membership First slate.

Howard won elections in 2009 and 2011 for the SAG presidency and then won the post in 2013 against Esai Morales in the first election for the merged SAG-aftra, running each time as the head of the moderate Unite for Strength slate. He announced June 1 that he would seek re-election with Jenny O’Hara as his running mate for secretary-treasurer.

Howard’s current endorsement list includes Alec Baldwin, Lewis Black, Bryan Cranston, Sally Field, Tom Hanks, William H. Macy, »

2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

16 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.

This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.

Best Drama Series

The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

Christian Slater: The Hollywood Flasback Interview

15 July 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Interview | See recent The Hollywood Interview news »

I interviewed actor Christian Slater in November, 2008 for Venice Magazine. Having long had a reputation as an "enfant terrible" in his youth, Slater surprised me somewhat with his calm, measured demeanor and thoughtful outlook. He was promoting his well-reviewed, but ultimately short-lived, TV series "My Own Worst Enemy," which we discussed a bit, but Slater was eager to reflect on his entire career and life, which he did with aplomb. My other memory of the chat is that during our dinner, the power went out in the restaurant or hotel where we met (the location of which has been lost to time) and the halogen streetlights outside casting our talk in a strange, other-worldly glow for a good 30 minutes. All these factors made our meeting a memorable one. Slater can currently be seen on the new USA Network series "Mr. Robot," which is also being lauded critically, and will hopefully »

My Fearless, Somewhat Frightening 2015 Emmy Predictions

14 July 2015 2:16 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

I have a bad feeling that Jane the Virgin is about to get royally screwed.

Emmy Nominations will be announced this Thursday at 11:30 am/Est, and my gut is telling me that the sublime freshman comedy — and its sterling ensemble led by Gina Rodriguez —will fall victim to the Academy’s long-held bias against The CW.

I really hope I am wrong.
