Colette vs. Mary Magdalene

5 February 2016 8:39 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Here's Murtada speculating very early on the 2017 Oscar race.

There’s usually a real life person in the best actress lineup. It’s not as prevalent as it is in best actor - 4 this year. But we do have Joy Mangano (Jennifer Lawrence). Last year there were Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones) and Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon). Recently we got everyone from Philomena Lee (Judi Dench) to Marilyn Monroe (Michelle Williams) and Edith Piaf (Marion Cotillard) and most famously The Queen (Helen Mirren) and her 80s nemesis Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep). Now we have two more possible candidates for the 2017 Oscar race as two interesting biopics were announced this week with two actresses well known to the Academy. French writer Colette (to be played by Keira Knightley) and Jesus disciple Mary Magdalene (Rooney Mara). 

Colette in 1920s

Colette is the more intriguing figure, at least to this non-believer. Born in 1873 she was a journalist, »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Costume Design

5 February 2016 6:15 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Indiewire Awards Season Spotlight  British costume designer Sandy Powell has been nominated for 10 Academy Awards -- winning on 3 occasions (for "Shakespeare in Love," "The Aviator" and "The Young Victoria") -- and she's now added two more for doing the costumes for both "Cinderella" and "Carol," in both occasions dressing Cate Blanchett in endlessly stunning ensembles.  Will it be enough for Oscar #4? Because she'll be splitting votes between herself, this category may go to the gloriously far out world of "Mad Max." Below is Anne Thompson's take on how things might shake down in the race for best costume design. Check out Thompson on Hollywood's Oscar predictions page for more awards season analysis.

Oscar 2016 Hopefuls Have a Common Enemy: Father Time

4 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Time is on your side,” the Rolling Stones have long assured us, though the heavyweight roles nominated for 88th Academy Awards would sing a different tune. Time’s tendency to force or impede behavior had a significant impact on much of the year’s best acting.

Dramatically, you can’t go wrong by setting tight deadlines. In “The Big Short,” Michael Burry (Christian Bale) hurries to exploit mortgage bonds’ weaknesses before anyone else discovers them, and rushes to infer just the right moment to sell before the house of cards collapses.

In “Spotlight,” Mark Ruffalo plays reporter Mike Rezendes, who is always running against time. “There’s a sense of urgency to almost everything Mike does, as if there could never be enough time to get a source to talk, to get the documents, to write the story — it’s why he runs,” Ruffalo says.

Dan Rather on Why 'Truth' is the Best Journalism Movie of All Time (Plus Exclusive Video)

Truth Starring Cate Blanchett on Blu-ray and DVD Today

2 February 2016 2:46 PM, PST | | See recent news »

If there ever were a single event that established the internet as a counter to a highly biased press, it was Dan Rather’s blatant attempt in 2004 to fix an election using phony documentation. It’s been well documented that 60 Minutes Producer Mary Mapes and Rather wanted a “gotcha” story so they ignored journalistic standards to produce one. And they might have gotten away with it (and in an earlier day they would have), except we had entered the Internet age where almost anyone at home could check the facts and documents. That’s what happened and the story quickly fell apart. They got caught lying and fabricating evidence and were drummed out of the mainstream media. That would make an interesting movie rather than Truth, an attempt to make cheaters look like they were doing something noble.

Yet some critics liked the film. Cate Marquis here at We Are »

Spielberg's Best Pictures and New DVDs

2 February 2016 12:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Time to check in to see which movies we all can check back in with or catch up with now that they've hit the home market. The big title, Oscar wise is Steven Spielberg's 10th Best Picture nominee as a director, the cold war drama Bridge of Spies with Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance both doing fine work as a lawyer and the spy he must bargain with for a prisoner of war trade. Only one of Spielberg's directorial efforts has ever won Best Picture (Schindler's List, 1993) but which is your favorite? I'd rank them like so...

Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) Schindler's List (1993) Jaws (1975) E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982) Lincoln (2012) The Color Purple (1985) Bridge of Spies (2015) Saving Private Ryan (1998) Munich (2005) War Horse (2011)

With the disclaimer that everyone knows I'm not a Spielberg aficionado really (the top three are the only ones I'm completely wild about from this list »

Taika Waititi confirms Cate Blanchett for Thor: Ragnarok

2 February 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in December it was reported that Cate Blanchett was wanted for a role in the upcoming Marvel sequel Thor: Ragnarok, with Mark Ruffalo subsequently supporting the rumour. And now director Taika Waititi has confirmed that the two-time Oscar winner is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Yes,” Waititi tells Wired when asked if the actress is set to appear in the film. “Look, it’s so early I’m not sure exactly what the extent of it is, but it’s looking good, which would make me very happy.”

Asked about the rumour that Blanchett will play Hela, Waititi responded that: “Yeah, the rumor … Here’s the thing. I can’t say anything. I’ve probably said way too much.”

Universal’s Mary Magdalene Biopic Eyes Rooney Mara

2 February 2016 9:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off wooing Cate Blanchett in Todd Haynes’ critically-acclaimed Oscar hopeful Carol, Rooney Mara has emerged as an early frontrunner to land the title role in Universal’s Mary Magdalene biopic, Deadline has learned.

Partnering with See-Saw Films, the studio has already instated Garth Davis in the director’s chair, and it looks as though Mara is on the verge of coming aboard. Negotiations are currently underway, so it’s worth keeping in mind that the casting is yet to be finalized, but that hasn’t quelled Davis’ excitement about the potential of Mara portraying “one of history’s most misunderstood woman.”

“Rooney’s raw, brave approach to performances, coupled with her deeply magnetic inner life, holds all the dimensions needed to bring to life one of history’s most misunderstood woman — Mary Magdalene,” said Davis. “Having worked with Rooney on Lion, I know she is a once in a lifetime talent. »

Killer Content Developing TV Adaptation of Child Refugee Documentary ‘The Displaced’

2 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Killer Content is developing a TV series inspired by the New York Times’ feature “The Displaced,” which tells the stories of three children whose lives have been devastated by war in South Sudan, Syria and the Ukraine.

Killer Content, the parent company of Killer Films, has optioned the TV rights to the Times’ multimedia documentary project that marked the news organization’s first virtual reality film. “The Displaced” was published on Nov. 5, 2015.

Killer is in the process of recruiting a writer to handle the narrative adaptation of the heart-wrenching stories of 9-year-old Chuol, 12-year-old Hana and 11-year-old Oleg. The series is envisioned as picking up where the Times’ film leaves off in depicting the children’s fate as they seek to rebuild their lives. Matt Earl Beesley (“Masters of Sex,” “Lost”) is on board to direct.

Killer is producing “The Displaced” with Two Brass Brads, a non-profit outfit that aims »

Vanity Fair's 2016 Hollywood Issue Cover - A Close Look

1 February 2016 4:30 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Someone's been paying attention to every single media firestorm in Hollywood this past year from ageism to equal pay to diversity. Gracing this year's cover of Vanity Fair's Hollywood Issue is political showbiz icon Jane Fonda (2 Oscars), the inspirational crusading awesomeness of Viola Davis (1 phantom Oscar -- well, everyone knows she deserved it!), "the world is round people" diva Cate Blanchett (2 Oscars), and equal-pay-demander Jennifer Lawrence (1 Oscar).

Vf's "Hollywood Issue" tradition is one of the key attractions in the showbiz circus of Oscar season. Though the covers aren't tied thematically to the Oscars they usually include current nominees. The primary form is a "predict the future superstars" covers in which they lean into the young in-demand crop who are having good years. The less common form is a survey of A listers and legends and a few people that scream "now"  and that's the type we got this year. And girl, »

10 observations about the cover of Vanity Fair's new Hollywood issue

1 February 2016 12:01 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Every year Vanity Fair treats us to a spellbinding showbiz spectacle with its Hollywood issue, which celebrates A-list actors by having them lounge all over each other like West End chaises. Check out the 2016 class, photographed by (who else?) Annie Leibovitz.     1. At first Cate Blanchett appears to be reclining on Viola Davis, but judging by the height of her lean, she actually scaled Viola Davis and planted an Australian flag on her shoulder blade. "Me and Viola, we're in this together," her posture suggests. Viola's posture suggests the rebuttal, "Maybe, if I have time."  2. Jennifer Lawrence is going for some kind of thug head-lean here? Jane Fonda chuckles and says, "Let her try."  3. How have we gone this long without realizing Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander are the same person? I haven't seen Oscar doppelgangering of this kind since 2009 when Vera Farmiga and Maggie Gyllenhaal were co-nominated and spent all »

'Thor 3: Ragnarok' Will Have a Much Smarter, Verbal Hulk

1 February 2016 11:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Marvel kicks off its enormous Phase Three slate this summer with Captain America: Civil War, almost all of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe characters will be present, except two, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). These characters will be reuniting next year in Thor: Ragnarok, which will take them both on a "cosmic road trip." Director Taika Waititi recently spoke with Hitfix, where he teased that they're considering how "verbal" the Hulk should be and that he'll be much smarter this time around.

"It's interesting, because at the moment, there's a big conversation that's happening about how far to push that. Whether or not The Hulk should be [verbal/conscious]. I think a lot of those conversations have more to do with what's going to come up in future movies. So I think a lot of those decisions are larger group decisions, rather than anything to do with just me or the writer. »

Will Volstagg Return in 'Thor: Ragnarok'?

1 February 2016 6:56 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With Thor: Ragnarok set to start production this summer in Australia, there have been no shortage of rumors swirling around the project over the past few weeks. A report surfaced last week that the villain of this story is Hela, who may be portrayed by Cate Blanchett. And we also know that Mark Ruffalo is returning as Hulk. Ray Stevenson, who played Volstagg in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, recently revealed in an interview with Geeks Worldwide that he still isn't sure yet if he is returning as this character.

"I'm still in the dark in regards to that, but I'm absolutely blown away to be apart of something that so influential and integral in a part of our generation in regards to movie watching and this Marvel Universe. Its absolutely incredible and if there's a place for Volstagg then great, but right now I don't know. He was great to play. »

Expect A Smarter Hulk In "Thor: Ragnarok"

31 January 2016 10:19 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Some more comments from Taika Waititi at the Sundance Film Festival are in with the filmmaker discussing one aspect of the "Thor: Ragnarok" production that hasn't been talked about before now - namely how smart and verbose he intends to make the green meanie in the film.

Waititi tells Hitfix that the topic is in discussions right now and that it also ties in with the "Avengers: Infinity War" saga with the director implying Marvel wants to go that route in those films:

"It's interesting, because at the moment, there's a big conversation that's happening about how far to push that. Whether or not The Hulk should be [verbal/conscious]... I think a lot of those conversations have more to do with what's going to come up in future movies.
