10 Things the Fall Festivals Could Tell Us About Awards Season

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Which Films That We've Already Seen Will Make Oscar's Cut? The Venice Film Festival kicks off this week with the world premiere of "Everest" and that's as good as a starting gun: Awards season is here. Over the next six weeks, Venice, Telluride, Toronto and New York (which has established itself as the full-on fourth member of the fall festival Oscar influencers) will offer the first look at dozens of films that may or may not factor into this year's race. From new work by Oscar favorites Steven Spielberg, Danny Boyle, Ridley Scott, Robert Zemeckis, Stephen Frears and Tom Hooper to films that could emerge out of nowhere, these festivals are the first opportunity for awards prognostication to move beyond intelligent (and sometimes not-so-intelligent) guessing. Granted, this year has already offered some clues. We went over them in this article, which suggests "Brooklyn," "Carol," "Inside Out," "Mad Max: Fury. »

Apple Goes After Netflix With Plans to Get Into Original Programming

13 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Apple may be gearing up to compete with Netflix, Hulu and Amazon by producing its own original programming.

Variety reports that the tech giant has been quietly meeting with Hollywood execs, but Apple hasn't confirmed that. Should these plans pan out, Apple could be in the original content business by 2016.

Variety cites one unnamed "high-level executive," who said that the company wants to create long-form content. Whether that's TV series or movies remains to be seen. It's also not clear if they'd opt for a subscription model, like Netflix, or continue to charge per program download, as they do on iTunes.

Apple reportedly tried to make a deal for the "Top Gear" stars' new show after they left the BBC, but they ended up at Amazon instead.

And while Apple has been buying independent films at festivals to distribute on iTunes, they've also been talking about creating their own original indie films, »

Telluride Film Festival 2015: Most Anticipated

30 August 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 42nd Telluride Film Festival is about to get underway in southwest Colorado. A box canyon provides a jaw-dropping setting for a fest jammed packed with premieres, retrospectives and classics over Labor Day weekend. This is my 10th year attending and my 9th year working for the festival. The production team works meticulously in the month before the showings to spring theaters out of the local schools, hockey rink, park, Masonic Temple and library. The intricate decoration and state of the art tech involved in the preparation lead the festival to be lovingly referred to as “Show.”

Telluride is a small and friendly town that provides an intimate arena for intense discussion about film. In recent years, higher profile selections in the program have gone on to Academy award winning renown. These movies have garnered Telluride attention on the film festival circuit but not changed the close-knit community who work »

Director Alex Gibney Compares Steve Jobs to James Brown

28 August 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Four years after his death, the fascination with Steve Jobs continues, this time through the lens of Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney in his latest documentary for Magnolia Pictures, “Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine.”

“He was a little bit like James Brown in the sense that he was a great performer, but also a pretty good band leader,” Gibney said Thursday at an intimate screening of the film at New York’s Crosby Street Hotel. “He understood that he had to have a lot of talented people around him who really designed and engineered the products. That wasn’t Steve’s thing. Steve’s thing was to sell the products and also tell great stories about them. I think over time we imagine that he was the grand inventor. He wasn’t that at all.”

“There’s a darker side to Steve Jobs that we can’t forget about. »

Michael Fassbender Is A Pensive Genius In New Steve Jobs Poster

28 August 2015 7:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aside from supporting roles in Band of Brothers and evocative British realism drama Fish Tank, you’d be forgiven for not knowing who Michael Fassbender was prior to 2008. Less than a decade later, though, the German–Irish star has shouldered his way into Hollywood’s pantheon, and his stature will only continue to grow over the next two to three years thanks to roles in Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth – and indeed Assassin’s Creed – along with Ridley Scott’s sci-fi sequel, Prometheus 2.

Before all of that, however, Fassbender’s latest and much-talked about role will be playing the titular, flawed visionary for Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs biopic, and only today Universal has released a pensive new poster for the Oscar-tipped drama. It’s a beautifully clean, minimalist side-portrait of the lead character, which trumpets the film’s ensemble cast as much as it casts its protagonist in isolation. »

Kate Winslet on Going After the Parts You Want

27 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Kate Winslet’s casting in the upcoming “Steve Jobs” biopic opposite Michael Fassbender is proof that sometimes an actor can benefit from playing against their “type.” As Joanna Hoffman, a “feisty immigrant,” Winslet had to convince producer Scott Rudin she was right for the part. “I could feel that the powers that be weren’t overly intrigued by the idea of me playing this role, maybe because physically, facially, I didn’t look like a Polish-Armenian immigrant,” she told Vulture. “But sometimes you have to convince people....” Written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire”), “Steve Jobs” is set to drop Oct. 9.
