Joaquin Phoenix Finds His Inner Hippie In New Image From Inherent Vice

21 August 2014 12:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

No matter how the final product turns out, one thing is for certain: Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Inherent Vice will be one for the ages. It is the first adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel to come to the big screen, an accolade hardly diminished by the fact that Inherent Vice is the author’s most accessible and linear book to date. What’s more, the film is done by one of two contemporary directors best suited to produce a faithful and interesting version of Pynchon’s brilliantly meandering pastiche of detective fiction.

Inherent Vice features Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role of “Doc” Sportello, a pot-head private detective who investigates the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend in the midst of 1971 Los Angeles. In the process of investigating her disappearance, Sportello runs into any number of underworld characters, including badass police officer Bigfoot Bjornsen (Josh Brolin), and a lawyer named Sauncho Smilax, »

Comics on Film: Walking Back Through 'Sin City' Before This Weekend's Sequel

20 August 2014 10:19 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The original Sin City, released in 2005 with an all-star cast featuring the likes of Bruce Willis, Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, Brittany Murphy, Mickey Rourke and Benicio Del Toro, was largely positively received and a box office success. On a relatively small $40 million budget, the film managed to take in nearly $160 million when its theatrical run was all said and done. With talk of a sequel having loomed for years, it's finally coming this weekend in the form of Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, and looks to be just as unique, if not more ambitious than the original.   The Original's Unique Formula When the original Sin City was released, director Robert Rodriguez would attempt to distance himself from characterizing...

Opening Night – World Premiere

Gone Girl

David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m

David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (TremeFriday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

First Look: Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin in P.T. Anderson's 'Inherent Vice'

17 August 2014 7:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin aren't exactly seeing eye to eye. The first image from Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" has arrived, and in it the two stars sport wildly-different looks (Phoenix's bearded P.I. is a far cry from Brolin's flat-topped detective) as they sit beside each other at a diner counter. Set in 1970 Los Angeles, the Thomas Pynchon adaptation stars Phoenix as Larry "Doc" Sportello, a drug-addled P.I. investigating his ex-girlfriend's disappearance. In addition to Brolin, the all-star cast for the film - which has been slated to bow at the New York Film Festival on October 4 - includes Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone, Martin Short, Maya Rudolph and Eric Roberts. Check out the image below, then let us know what you think in the comments. (via EW) »

First Look at Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin in 'Inherent Vice'

16 August 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Entertainment Weekly has our first look at Joaquin Phoenix and Josh Brolin in Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. Based on Thomas Pynchon's 2009 novel, the movie is described as a 'psychedelic crime romp'.

Josh Brolin is playing a hippie-hating Lapd detective named Christian 'Bigfoot' Bjornson who is embroiled in a series of subplots involving conspiracies, fake deaths, heroin dealers and pimps. Joaquin Phoenix is a pot smoking private eye named Larry 'Doc' Sportello, who becomes involved in the case of a missing surfer girl's boyfriend. Here, we see 'Bigfoot' and 'Doc' meeting in a diner, where the P.I. is obviously infatuated with Bjornson's Joe Friday buzz cut

Katherine Waterston, who plays the surfing femme fatale with the missing boyfriend, had this to say about working with Paul Thomas Anderson on Inherent Vice:

"With Paul, he's interested in what might happen, not what should happen. He doesn't walk onto set with a clear goal. »

Exclusive: Josh Brolin talks 'Inherent Vice' and its...pancakes?

15 August 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Let’s begin with the facts.

In Inherent Vice, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s psychedelic crime romp that’s one of prestige season’s most befuddling and eagerly awaited titles, Josh Brolin plays a hippie-hating Lapd detective named Christian “Bigfoot” Bjornson.

Newcomer Katherine Waterston—an accomplished New York stage actress and daughter of Law & Order’s Sam Waterston—portrays Shasta Fay, a surfer-girl femme fatale. And Joaquin Phoenix appears as Larry “Doc” Sportello, a shambolic gumshoe with a fondness for bong hits who’s investigating the disappearance of Shasta Fay’s wealthy boyfriend in ’70s Southern California.

Marvel Needs To Bring Back The Collector As Many Times As They Can

14 August 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This post contains spoilers Guardians Of The Galaxy features a long-time supporting character, a being who has helped strengthen the firmament of the Marvel universe. His appearance, played by an award-winning actor, is minimal, but it's both colorful and threatening, suggesting great things to come. And it's one of the highlights of the movie, in a way that shape the narrative and plant the seeds for follow-ups. We're not talking about Thanos. We're talking about The Collector. Benicio Del Toro's Taneleer Tivan has shown up in two films in the Marvel world this far. He can be seen in the post-credits sequence for Thor: The Dark World, setting up his Guardians appearance. It also sets up his presence in Knowhere, an outpost at the edge of space where he keeps what is essentially an interstellar pawn shop full of goodies. He's overjoyed to receive the Aether at the end »

Three Big Studios Handle Much of New Mexico’s Film and TV Work

14 August 2014 12:13 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Where movies tread, soundstages rush in.

As production activity in New Mexico — spurred by generous tax credits and the state’s proximity to Hollywood — has grown significantly over the past two decades, production facilities have sprouted and expanded.

Three large complexes handle the bulk of New Mexico’s interior production: Albuquerque Studios and I-25 Studios in Albuquerque, plus Santa Fe Studios, located just south of Santa Fe. All have benefited from New Mexico’s incentive program, which attracts tentpole features (“Transcendence,” “The Avengers,” “The Lone Ranger”) and TV skeins (FX’s “Better Call Saul,” USA Network’s Anne Heche starrer “Dig”) as it offers a competitive (up to 30%) rebate for qualifying expenditures.

The relationship among these facilities can be characterized as “co-opetition.” “For producers, the decision is more about the economics between Louisiana, Georgia or South Carolina vs. New Mexico,” says I-25 StudiosRick Clemente.
