Nora Ephron and her gang of 'Good Girls Revolt'

27 September 2016 3:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective. In 1969, the publishing industry was not kind to women. But that was all about to change (or begin to change) when women leveraged their talent for better working conditions. Good Girls Revolt is a period piece, and much like it's predecessor, Mad Men, it's about the changes that happened in the workplace during a tumultuous time in American history. I think it would be cool, later on in the series,  if there were a crossover with Donald Draper -  who we last left in 1970 with a triumphant Coke commercial. There's also crossover potential with the movie Heartburn, in which Meryl Streep places a woman based on Nora Ephron (Nora Ephron wrote the book and the screenplay). Since it's Meryl Streep's daughter who plays Nora Ephron in Good Girls Revolt, »

Keanu Reeves is going to make you believe he's a lawyer

26 September 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective. What happens when you're accused of murdering Jim Belushi? You call Keanu Reeves. That's what you do. It's the first call I'd make, I know that.  Last time time I saw Keanu play a lawyer was Devil's Advocate, in which Keanu sold his soul to the devil (Al Pacino) in order to make partner. Or something like that. This is more reality based and if it weren't for the cast, it would probably be a made for TV movie. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Somewhat related, there's been some pretty watchable John Grisham movies out there  with awesome actors in them.  Are you interested in this movie? We know that the kid couldn't have killed his abusive father. That wouldn't be satisfying. Did Renee Zellweger do it? The »

Nora Ephron Starts a Revolution in Good Girls Revolt — Watch Trailer

24 September 2016 8:37 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt (releasing on Friday, Oct. 28), Nora Ephron inspires a group of young women to stand up for themselves and attempt to gain equal footing in the world of journalism.

Appropriately enough, Newsroom alum Grace Gummer guest-stars as the the would-be novelist/playwright who confronts her boss (Show Me a Hero‘s Jim Belushi) when he refuses her a byline. This in turn prompts a group of female newsroom researchers to rally against sexism in hopes of one day being published in a male-dominated industry. »

Keanu Reeves Stars In New Trailer For The Whole Truth

20 September 2016 4:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Keanu Reeves is on the case as defense attorney Richard Ramsay in the new trailer and poster for Lionsgate Premiere’s The Whole Truth.

Starring Reeves alongside Renée Zellweger, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Gabriel Basso and Jim Belushi, the chilling crime thriller, from director Courtney Hunt, arrives in theaters and on-demand this October 21st.

Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Keanu Reeves) takes on a personal case when he swears to his widowed friend, Loretta Lassiter (Renée Zellweger), that he will keep her son Mike (Gabriel Basso) out of prison. Charged with murdering his father, Mike initially confesses to the crime. But as the trial proceeds, chilling evidence about the kind of man that Boone Lassiter (Jim Belushi) really was comes to light.

While Ramsay uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, his new colleague Janelle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) tries to dig deeper – and begins to realize that the whole truth is something she alone can uncover. »

Coming Distractions: Keanu Reeves puts on his serious actor face in this trailer for The Whole Truth

20 September 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Keanu Reeves doesn’t always get to enjoy the same level of respect as his actorly peers, possibly because most people still think of him as the goofy idiot from the Bill & Ted movies. The Matrix helped a little, but that just led to more cool action projects like John Wick instead of really convincing people that Reeves is more than that goofy idiot. This trailer for director Courtney Hunt’s The Whole Truth, on the other hand, is so intensely serious that it may have actually come from an alternate universe where the Bill & Ted movies never happened and Reeves is regarded as one of those Daniel Day Lewis-style “actors’ actors.”

The Whole Truth revolves around a seemingly open-and-shut murder case in which a young guy is accused of murdering Jim Belushi (who plays his dad). Reeves is the kid’s lawyer, and as the trial goes ...

First Trailer for Legal Thriller 'The Whole Truth' Starring Keanu Reeves

20 September 2016 11:31 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I have to defend him without knowing all the facts." Lionsgate has revealed the trailer for a film titled The Whole Truth, a legal thriller starring Keanu Reeves as a defense attorney in a murder case. His job is to build a defense to keep his friend's son out of jail, even though it seems his conviction for murder is pretty clear. The film also stars Renée Zellweger, Gabriel Basso, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jim Belushi, Sean Bridgers and Christopher Berry. Maybe I'm just a sucker for anything Keanu Reeves stars in, but this actually looks damn good, with some intriguing questions being asked about how the law works and whether or not someone is trying to cover up the truth. I'm curious. This definitely looks like it'll be worth watching. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Courtney Hunt's The Whole Truth, direct from YouTube: Defense attorney Richard Ramsay (Keanu Reeves »

‘The Whole Truth’ Trailer: Keanu Reeves Defends Renée Zellweger in Crime Thriller

20 September 2016 10:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Keanu Reeves is working on a slew of upcoming thrillers (including the highly-anticipated “John Wick: Chapter 2”) and among his list is “The Whole Truth,” directed by Courtney Hunt and co-starring Renée Zellweger, Jim Belushi and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. A new poster and trailer for the feature have just been released by Lionsgate Premiere, which you can check out below.

As he uses the evidence to get his client acquitted, he begins to realize that there might be more to this story than he originally thought.

A Heated Court Battle Unfolds In First Trailer For Legal Drama The Whole Truth

20 September 2016 10:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Do you solemnly swear to tell the truth, The Whole Truth, and nothing but the truth? That’s the question presented by Keanu Reeves’ defense attorney Richard Ramsay in the inaugural trailer for Courtney Hunt’s upcoming legal drama.

Agreeing to take on a case for the sake of close friend, Loretta Lassiter (Renée Zellweger), Reeves fights for the right of her disgraced son Mike (Gabriel Basso), who was found guilty (?) and later imprisoned for murdering his father. But an open-and-shut case this is not, after allegations emerge that Loretta actually fooled the jury into thinking that her estranged husband was guilty of domestic abuse. Keep your peepers peeled for the shot of Zellweger’s widow inflicting bruises on her own arm, for instance.

It’s all very melodramatic, but the mere inclusion of Keanu Reeves, who impressed even when holding a small role in The Neon Demon earlier this year, »

Keanu Reeves Fights For ‘The Whole Truth’ in Theatrical Trailer

20 September 2016 7:32 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Seeing somewhat of a resurgence lately on the indie circuit with The Neon Demon and The Bad Batch, as well on the action side with John Wick, Keanu Reeves also found time for a courtroom drama. The Whole Truth, which we actually got a glimpse at earlier this year thanks to a spring release in Japan, will hit U.S. theaters next month and a new trailer has landed.

Frozen River director Courtney Hunt is following her acclaimed 2008 feature with this project, which sees Reeves portray a lawyer defending a man who killed his father — himself the lawyer’s former client. While this looks more conventional than her last film, hopefully Hunt continues to conjure a strong dramatic pull with Keeves in the lead.

Also starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw Renée Zellweger, Gabriel Basso, Jim Belushi, Kenneth Choi, Sean Bridgers, and Erica McDermott, check out the trailer below.

Keanu Reeves Discovers ‘The Whole Truth’ In New Trailer For Legal Thriller

20 September 2016 7:07 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Unless, it’s “John Wick 2,” I’m having trouble concentrating on whatever Keanu Reeves is doing next. In this case, it’s “The Whole Truth,” a legal thriller that has already opened in Japan and select overseas markets already. That’s not always a good sign, but talent around this movie is nonetheless compelling.

Say What? Justin Timberlake Filming New Woody Allen Film

Manuel here. Between Emmy night last night and Tiff's wrap, and the onslaught of New York Film Festival press screenings, let's start the week with some eye candy.  This is an image from the set of Woody Allen's latest film (as of yet, as usual, untitled) which stars Kate Winslet, Juno Temple, Jim Belushi, and Jt himself. We don't know much about, but we can definitely begin answering Eric's question as to whether the "Can't Stop This Feeling" singer will bring the sexy back to Woody's films. Here he is in full mid-century lifeguard regalia:

[Tiff Review] Katie Says Goodbye

11 September 2016 9:06 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Considering how fashionable a “spiritual sequel” is in Hollywood these days, it’s a pity that those behind Katie Says Goodbye can’t legally flaunt it as one of the prequel variety to Martin Scorsese’s early drama Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. Sharing more than just the pink waitress uniforms donned by Olivia Cooke and Ellen Burstyn, respectively, both films explore a seemingly inescapable life below the poverty line in the American southwest, with big dreams to emerge out of the rut. Wayne Roberts‘ directorial debut certainly gets darker than that 1974 drama, but, despite a transfixing performance from Cooke, it’s in search of a more distinctive personality on both the page and screen.

Katie spends most of her time working as a waitress at the local truck stop, seemingly the biggest attraction in her desolate town. At night, she tends to her alcoholic, unemployed mother (Mireille Enos »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Katie Says Goodbye’

11 September 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like the heroine of a silent movie melodrama, or any number of Lars von Trier opuses, the title character in “Katie Says Goodbye” suffers more than her share of tragic events. But even if first-time writer-director Wayne Roberts is sympathetic to the plight he’s chosen for the protagonist, his film never burrows deep enough under her skin to make the string of miserable scenarios connect in a meaningful way.

A waitress at a truck stop in a tiny Arizona town, Katie is played by Olivia Cooke with something between the glamour of those silent era sirens and the studied naturalism of a contemporary indie It girl. So moving as “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’s” doomed high schooler and so witty and vibrant in her best moments on TV’s “Bates Motel,” Cooke is a natural at holding the camera, and she’s on screen nearly every »
