Feud: Bette And Joan Review

22 February 2017 6:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

“Feuds are never about hate,” famed screen legend Olivia de Havilland (Catherine Zeta-Jones) explains to a documentary film director in the opening minutes of what’s likely to be your simmering new obsession: Feud. “They’re about pain.” Anthology fetishist Ryan Murphy understands that pathos to a disturbingly detailed degree, and in tracking the blistering “friendship” between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, he ends up with one of his best cracks at the anthology genre in years.

The show’s premise risks stepping into the catty trap of comebacks and catfights at first blush, but Murphy and company have no desire to reduce Bette and Joan’s discourse into a frivolous fiasco. Feud is deliberate and cunning, with as much guile and guts as the two women at its center. Its drama is a slower-burn than Murphy’s typical chomping-at-the-bit style, »

The Boy Friend

18 February 2017 10:24 AM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

It’s hard to think of a musical that would benefit more from a Blu-ray boost than Ken Russell’s kaleidoscopic all dancing, all singing send-up of theatrical clichés on the music hall stage, circa 1925. We’re just happy that the adorable Twiggy got to be put in a film like this, to be enjoyed forever. The Russell crowd is all aboard, led by Glenda Jackson and Murray Melvin. Gosh!

‘Feud’: Inside Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon’s Take on a Hollywood Battle Royale

15 February 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dressed in a black ensemble topped by a long brown coat, Ryan Murphy darts back and forth between two rooms in the chilly Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. On this January day, a cramped space in this deliciously retro complex houses the monitors for Murphy as he directs an episode of his new FX series “Feud: Bette and Joan” that is set at the 1963 Academy Awards.

It’s a pivotal moment in the famous rivalry between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Having co-starred in “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” both women wanted the career boost of appearing on the Oscar podium. While it’s tough to spoil an event that happened more than five decades ago, let’s just say it was, to quote Davis, a “bumpy night.”

Feud” — which debuts March 5 — mines that decades-old conflict to tell a modern and highly relevant story about Hollywood, sexism, and survival.

FX has released the first full trailer for its upcoming original series “Feud: Bette and Joan,” starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange. Watch the clip below.

Feud: Bette and Joan” is centered around the well-publicized rivalry between two iconic stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood, Joan Crawford (Lange) and Bette Davis (Sarandon), during the filming of the 1962 horror film “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” and after production ended.

“There was never a rivalry like this. For a half a century they hated each other, and we loved them for it,” says Olivia de Havilland (played by Catherine Zeta-Jones), who appears as a talking head interstitial in the trailer.

Ryan Murphy’s anthology series features Alfred Molina as director Robert Aldrich and Stanley Tucci as predictably loathsome studio head Jack Warner. »

Feud: Bette and Joan Review: Oscar Winners Lange and Sarandon Turn Camp Into an Acting Master Class

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If you created a TV show in a laboratory with the specific aim of winning a Best Actress Emmy… it’d probably look a lot like FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan. For better or worse.

The first season of Ryan Murphy’s new anthology series (debuting Sunday, March 5 at 10/9c) is an actor’s dream, letting Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon rip each other to shreds and chew up every bit of scenery as dueling Hollywood divas Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. Their performances are fantastic enough to live up to the lofty billing — and to overlook some of »

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Review: Why Care About the Facts When a Show Feels This True?

14 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” is a TV show built on pure gossipy indulgence; one that’s inclined to believe the most juicy stories about its characters, but not in a bad way. Historical reports about the truth of what happened on the set of “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” and surrounding events are up for dispute, so instead we have the popular myths surrounding Bette Davis and Joan Crawford’s legendary — and last — on-screen collaboration put on display by Ryan Murphy and his team. The end result is at times simultaneously obvious, essential, and not nearly as campy as you might expect.

And it turns out, that’s for the best.

Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange face off in new teasers for Ryan Murphy’s Feud: Bette and Joan

6 February 2017 2:10 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Not all the teasers that aired during yesterday’s Super Bowl Li were for major blockbuster movies, as FX’s latest series from American Crime Story and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy, Feud: Bette and Joan, received two brief new teasers. Both promos are only about 12 seconds in length but manage to explain the basic premise of the show: legendary Hollywood actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford engage in a behind-the-scenes feud while filming 1962’s hit film What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? that continues for quite some time after. Check out the teasers below…

The two iconic actresses of Old Hollywood will be played by two iconic actresses of New Hollywood, with Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange stepping into the shoes of Davis and Crawford, respectively. Lange previously worked with Murphy on American Horror Story, for which she earned numerous accolades.

The show, apparently, won’t just explore the battle between the two, »

David Stratton documentary unveils new title, trailer

24 January 2017 3:50 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

David Stratton's much-anticipated documentary on Australian film (previously known as David Stratton: Stories of Australian Cinema) has been given a new title to go with its new-look trailer..

Transmission Films will release David Stratton: A Cinematic Life on March 9, and the new trailer promises a film with a biographical bent, as much about Stratton himself as the films that have inspired him.

When I spoke to him at last year's Australian International Movie Convention, Stratton described the project as "very personal".

"Without wanting to sound too pretentious about it, it.s sort of my journey coming to Australia from England, running the Sydney Film Festival for eighteen years, fighting censorship, [and] being at the Sydney Film Festival just as the Australian New Wave was happening with the Peter Weirs and the Gillian Armstrongs and the Fred Schepisis."

Besides Armstrong and Schepisi, the doc features Eric Bana, Bryan Brown, »

"Feud: Bette and Joan"- "She slept with every co-star at MGM except 'Lassie'"

19 January 2017 12:45 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek director Ryan Murphy's "Feud: Bette and Joan", starring Susan Sarandon as 'Bette Davis' and Jessica Lange as 'Joan Crawford', airing March 5, 2017 on FX:

"...both 'Davis' and 'Crawford', considered washed-up in Hollywood...

"...agree to costar in director Robert Aldrich's low-budget 1962 horror feature "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?"

"While filming, Davis allegedly kicked Crawford in the head and when Davis was nominated for an Oscar foe the film, Crawford campaigned against her..."

Davis once said of Crawford: "She slept with every male costar at MGM except Lassie", while Crawford said : "Davis never had a happy day — or night — in her life."

Cast also includes Catherine Zeta-Jones as 'Olivia de Havilland', Alfred Molina as director 'Robert Aldrich', Judy Davis as 'Hedda Hopper', Kathy Bates as 'Joan Blondell' and Sarah Paulson as 'Geraldine Page'. »

46 Days Until "Feud"

18 January 2017 11:33 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

first promotional shot from Feud

The new Ryan Murphy anthology TV series' first eight-episode season, premieres on Sunday March 5th (yes exactly one week after the Oscars which seems very kind). The season looks at the legendarily bitchy Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) vs Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) wars. Two Oscar winners playing two Oscar winners. We're in!

We don't want to know too much ahead of time as that ruins so many TV shows and movies these days but it would be nice to have a leaked list of films referenced beyond Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (1962) so we could do a little revisiting of some key titles before the premiere, though it seems likely that the series will also cover the production of Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte (1964) given the character list in the credits. Jessica Lange doesn't look or feel much like Joan Crawford in face or persona which »
