Quiz: Biographies, biopics and based on a true story

10 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

James Brown is the latest figure to have his life story turned into a biopic in this week’s Get On Up, starring Chadwick Boseman (42) and the late singer. 

Biopics are an actor’s gateway to an Oscar nomination and those that play characters based on real people are often counted as the frontrunner in the awards race.  Biographical reenactments are often counted as the highest form of acting talent with great scrutiny to not only the look of the real-life character but also sound and mannerisms of said person.  Just look at previous winner Daniel Day-Lewis.  Much was made about his uncanny resemblance to Honest Abe in Lincoln, and there was just as much debate over his choice to play Lincoln with a somewhat high-pitched voice.

Since 2000, over 35 performances in biopics have been nominated across the four acting categories at the Academy Awards.   Winning roles have included famous people »

Is Toronto Film Festival Losing Its Awards Mojo?

22 July 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Toronto’s lineup, announced Tuesday, has awards pundits drooling in anticipation, but here’s some free advice: Wipe away the drool and manage your expectations.

A few years ago, the Canadian fest was the focus of many awards campaigns. But the situation is changing so quickly that Toronto is still a big factor, but it’s no longer the key factor. And that’s a good thing for everybody.

There are certainly plenty of tantalizing Toronto titles. The ones that sound (on paper) like strong awards contenders include “Black and White” (Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer in a custody battle), “The Equalizer” (Denzel Washington, reuniting with Antoine Fuqua), “The Imitation Game” (Benedict Cumberbatch), “The Judge” (Robert Downey Jr., pictured), “Men, Women and Children” (directed by Jason Reitman), “Nightcrawler” (Jake Gyllenhaal, in Dan Gilroy’s film-directing debut), and “Theory of Everything” (Eddie Redmayne as Stephen Hawking), as well as Cannes hits like “Foxcatcher” and “Mr. Turner. »

Naomi Watts In Talks To Join Demolition With Jake Gyllenhaal

22 July 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After his Dallas Buyers Club became one of the most critically lauded movies of 2o13, landing six Oscar nominations and winning two (for Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto’s performances), Jean-Marc Vallee quickly proved himself to be one of the most promising directors working today, and he looks set to return to the Oscar stage next year with Wild, a Reese Witherspoon-powered awards contender. How do you follow up two projects as impressive and intriguing as those? In Vallee’s case, he’s sticking to his guns with Demolition, a story of individuals struggling against seemingly insurmountable obstacles both internal and external.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars as “a young investment banker struggling to understand his emotional disconnect following the tragic death of his wife in an auto accident. As he tears apart his life in a distraught effort to see where he went wrong, he becomes obsessed with destruction.”

Reese Witherspoon in Two French-Canadian Toronto Film Festival Movies

22 July 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's actually pretty common for movie stars to appear in more than one movie at the Toronto Film Festival. In the past, A-listers like George Clooney and Bradley Cooper have pulled double-duty, with two very different movies on the bill.

It seems like this year, Reese Witherspoon is offering us a double-dose of her movies. One is the much-anticipated "Wild," directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, and the other is "The Good Lie," directed by Philippe Falardeau. »

Toronto International Film Festival unveils first wave of films for 2014

22 July 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The Toronto International Film Festival (Tiff), which runs from September 4 to 14 this year, has announced its initial lineup of films. This is the first of a handful of announcements for the festival, and as always, the first announcement focuses on its Galas and Special Presentations -- the films with the flashiest names.

The initial slate of fifty-nine films includes thirty-seven world premieres, boasting those from Noah Baumbach,Lone Scherfig, and Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock. Premieres have been a contentious subject this year on the film festival circuit, as Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Tiff, threw down the gauntlet, announcing that the festival would not play a film in the first four days of its schedule if it was also programmed concurrently for the Telluride festival.

Whether or not this was the right move, Tiff has still managed to secure the films of Noah BaumbachDavid Cronenberg, Lone Scherfig, »
