Everyone Says I Love Woody – What Romantic Comedies Owe to Mr. Allen

29 August 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Woody Allen’s back catalogue casts a long shadow across contemporary romantic comedy. His tropes and trademarks are as ingrained into the collective sense memory as mother’s perfume. At the first tremble of a clarinet, mutter about mortality or meander across a Manhattan neighbourhood, we inhale the nostalgia like Bisto kids. And arguably we’d never have met Harry and Sally, walked the Sidewalks of New York or dined alongside Friends with Money without his influence.

The Longest Week is peppered with Woody base notes. Over the course of seven days, Conrad (Jason Bateman) has been stripped of the safety net of his wealth and the cushion of his ego, moved in with his cynical best friend (Billy Crudup) and accidentally fallen in love with his girl (Olivia Wilde). His eventual dilemma – to be or not to be a better man – is as timeless as Annie Hall.

Now, to coincide with its DVD release, »

Review Round-Up: Blood Orgy in The Longest Week at The Cabin

26 August 2014 2:25 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We’re playing catch-up here on Nerdly – after a busy 2 weeks prepping for and then attending this years Frightfest there’s a number of weekly-release reviews to bring you up to speed on. So here they are, reviews of The Cabin, Blood Orgy of the She Devils and The Longest Week.

The Cabin

Another one of those straight to DVD films that make up 99% of the horror films on sale at supermarkets, with the same generic cover art and shiny slipcase, The Cabin is destined to get mixed up with all the other cabin/lodge/house movies on the market when, in fact, it doesn’t deserve to – this film has little to do with the titular abode and more to do with the main characters bloodline (the original title of the movie) and his relationship with his faith.

The film tells the story of seminary student Brett Ethos (Matt Thompson »

‘Boyhood’ to Grow Old with Paramount on Home Entertainment Platforms

21 August 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Boyhood” has grown up to impress Hollywood’s studio system.

After breaking out this summer as a critical and box office hit for IFC Films, Paramount Home Media Distribution has acquired U.S. home entertainment rights to Richard Linklater’s drama. Deal should give the film considerable exposure at retail when it makes its way onto homevideo platforms sometime this fall.

The studio has yet to disclose when it will release the film, but Paramount will handle all physical and Internet digital home entertainment distribution following the film’s theatrical run. IFC Films will handle VOD and Est sales to cable, satellite and telco providers, releasing it simultaneously with Paramount’s efforts on certain platforms.

Linklater, who also wrote “Boyhood,” lensed the film over the past 12 years with Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Lorelei Linklater, in order to document star Ellar Coltrane growing up on screen as the character of Mason. »

Miller, Crudup & Angarano Join ‘Stanford Prison Experiment’

21 August 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It was only yesterday that we brought you the trailer to Billy Crudup’s latest venture, Rudderless, and now it looks like he might be attaching his name to something else. News has surfaced that the Almost Famous actor will star alongside Ezra Miller (We Need To Talk About Kevin) and Michael Angarano (The Brass Teapot) in Stanford Prison Experiment, based on true events.

With a script penned by Tim Talbott (South Park, Chicago Fire), the story is taken from an experiment conducted at Stanford University in the 1970s. A group of 19 and 20 year-old students are separated into two groups – prisoners and wardens. With a two week trial period, the participants are left to their own devices. However, with free reign to do what they want – and having gone a little power-crazy – the experiment has to be cut short due to ‘sadistic’ abuse.

Ezra Miller, Billy Crudup & More Join 'Stanford Prison Experiment'

20 August 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Following a pair of breakthrough performances from Ezra Miller in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being A Wallflower, we haven't seen the actor get nearly as much work as we want him to. But now he's lined up what could be a promising indie project with Billy Crudup and Michael Angarano in the Stanford Prison Experiment. Based on the social study of the same name, the film has been in development for over a decade and The Wrap reports it's coming together with C.O.G. director Kyle Patrick Alvarez at the helm. This certainly seems like timely subject matter considering what's going on in Ferguson, Missouri. For those who don't know the Stanford Prison Experiment was a study conducted at the university back in 1971 where randomly-chosen 19 and 20-year-old students were divided into camps of either prison guards or prisoners and left conduct themselves as they would in a jail. »

Emotional Trailer Released For Music Drama ‘Rudderless’

20 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Today we bring you the trailer for music-based drama Rudderless, starring the exceptional Billy Crudup.

After Sam’s (Crudup) teenage son is killed in a shooting, he goes off the rails, not able to cope with the loss. However, after finding CDs of original music recorded by his son before his death, Sam decides to collaborate with local musician Quentin (Anton Yelchin) to bring the memory of him to life. Selena Gomez, William H. Macy, Felicity Huffman, Laurence Fishburne, Jamie Chung and Kate Micucci co-star.

As a big fan of Crudup as the perfectly imperfect rock star Russell Hammond in Almost Famous I’m stoked to see him returning to a musical role. This looks amazing! What do you think?

Rudderless, directed by William H. Macy, will arrive in Us cinemas from 17th October 2014.

Deborah here, with a double-entry of Yes, No, Maybe So. First up, Rudderless from actor turned director William H Macy. (He's up for an Emmy Monday night for Shameless)

Yes

Directorial debut of William H. Macy. I'm a fan. He's using his wife, the awesome Felicity Huffman. Also Billy Crudup. There's a sweet naturalism to the trailer. It looks like Begin Again, except with more death and less money. I loved Begin Again.

It looks like Begin Again, except with more death and less money. How about a new movie?

Movie Review – Blood Ties (2013)

17 August 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blood Ties, 2013.

Directed by Guillaume Canet.

Starring Clive Own, Marion Cotillard, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Matthias Schoenaerts, James Caan, Noah Emmerich and Lili Taylor.

Synopsis:

Chris (Clive Owen) has just been released from prison on good behaviour, several years after he was involved in a gangland murder. Waiting for him reluctantly outside is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future. Hoping that Chris has changed, Frank is willing to give his brother a chance – he shares his home, finds him a job and helps him reconnect with his children and ex-wife. But Chris’ past quickly begins to catch up with him and his descent back into a life of crime becomes inevitable.

When you read a synopsis like the one for Blood Ties, you can’t help but think that it’s a fairly generic and familiar story. Thankfully it’s nowhere near »

The Best Movie Trailers of the Week

16 August 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week. Rudderless I don’t care much for the melodrama in the first half of the trailer, but after this new promo for Rudderless gets past the sad stuff, it really picks up simply because the music is so good. We’ve seen main characters unable to get devastating losses before and come close to self destruction because of it, but what then makes Rudderless feel like a fresh, rousing spin on the scenario is how Billy Crudup’s character winds up coping with it – through music, and music that’s catchy enough to make you want to see the full film for that alone.

Wonderful Trailer for Rudderless with Billy Crudup and Anton Yelchin

15 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Samuel Goldwyn Films has released the first trailer for William H. Macy's Rudderless. This is the first film that he has directed, and it is really quite beautiful. I loved it. I saw it at Sundance earlier this year, and it's one of those moving, inspirational films that needs to be seen. Here's the story description:

Billy Crudup plays Sam, a former high-profile advertising executive whose life is torn apart by the sudden death of his son. Living off the grid on a docked sailboat, he wastes away his days while drowning his pain in alcohol. When Sam discovers a box filled with his son's demo tapes and lyrics, his own child’s musical talent is a revelation for him, a grieving father who felt he’d been absent from his son’s life. Communing with his deceased son’s dashed dreams, Sam learns each song and eventually musters »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Guillaume Canet on Blood Ties and why he has turned down Hollywood

15 August 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Having made films in the English language as an actor, Guillaume Canet is yet to make a film in the States as a director, but now remakes a film he once starred in, to bring us Blood Ties. We had the great pleasure in speaking to Canet, who discussed why he chose this particular story, why he has turned down big Hollywood scripts in the past years, and what it was like directing his partner, Marion Cotillard.

Blood Ties is of course a remake of Les Liens du Sang, which you starred in. When working on that film, were you already planning your own version in your mind?

No, to be honest, it was the first time in my life I was reading a script as an actor and that I had this weird feeling when I was reading it, I really wanted to direct it. Which was weird for me. »
