2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

25 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino has led Christoph Waltz to two Oscars in this category, but Waltz is absent from the director's latest, "The Hateful Eight." That film boasts a whopping seven potential contenders in this category (only of the noted eight is a woman, which could get Jennifer Jason Leigh a nod in the supporting actress race). Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern and Samuel L. Jackson seem like they have the showiest parts, putting them in contention amidst a seemingly endless list of other contenders: Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels ("Steve Jobs"), Benedict Cumberbatch and Kevin Bacon ("Black Mass"), Tom Hardy ("The Revenant"), Alan Alda ("Bridge of Spies"), Bradley Cooper ("Joy"), Steve Carell ("Freeheld"), Dominic West and Jude Law ("Genius") and Mr. Waltz himself ("Tulip Fever"). We truly could go on and on... It will also be interesting to see how many nominees from last year pop up here. Beyond the noted »

Munich Film Festival to Pay Tribute to Alexander Payne with Retrospective

25 May 2015 2:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Munich Film Festival is to pay tribute to Alexander Payne with a complete retrospective of his movies.

Payne’s last visit to the event was in 1997 when he won the High Hopes Award for “Citizen Ruth,” the predecessor of the festival’s CineVision Award. The film starred Laura Dern as a white trash antihero who becomes a cause celebre when she gets pregnant with her fifth child.

Among the movies to play in Munich this year are “Election,” which was the international breakout role for Reese Witherspoon, “About Schmidt,” starring Jack Nicholson, “Sideways,” which stars Paul Giamatti, “The Descendants,” starring George Clooney, and “Nebraska,” with Bruce Dern toplining.

The Munich retrospective will show all Payne’s shorts, features and TV films. On June 26, there will be a gala held in his honor, and the director will also speak about his life and movies at Filmmakers Live in the Gasteig Black Box. »

Geena Davis' Film Festival is Great, But How Does Wal-Mart Fit In?

19 May 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The inaugural, Geena Davis-backed Bentonville Film Festival ran May 5-9 with a level of attention and funding that other small-town festivals could never imagine. Among those who traveled to Bentonville, Arkansas to attend the event, which champions women and diversity, were Robert De Niro, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Bruce Dern, Rosie O'Donnell and Doug McMillon, president and CEO of presenting sponsor Wal-Mart. Read More: Here's Why Geena Davis Started a Film Festival Focused Not on Women, but Diversity Also present: A film slate comprised of G and PG ratings (and no gay characters); Wal-Mart executives on the programming committees, panels, and the jury; and reps from presenting sponsor Coca-Cola, one of whom closed an opening-night speech with the cheery message, "Drink a Coke and enjoy the movie!" No one questions the mandate for Davis and her Institute on Gender in Media: She wants gender equality and diversity in Hollywood. Institute research shows some. »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Hanks Excellent as Crusoe-ish Hero in Pop-Existential Drama

13 May 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Cast Away' Movie with Tom Hanks stranded on a deserted island 'Cast Away' Movie review: Tom Hanks excellent in high-concept Hollywood flick disguised as existential adventure drama Most people will see Robert Zemeckis' Cast Away as a celebration of the Triumph of the Human Spirit. A minority, myself included, will prefer the more mundane explanation that the film merely depicts a man following his survival instincts, which propel him – like any other animal, from cockroaches to crocodiles – to fight to remain alive almost against his will. Whichever way one chooses to view the survival of Tom Hanks' Federal Express engineer Chuck Noland (No-land, get it?) after being stranded for years on a deserted island (mostly shot in Monuriki, Fiji), Cast Away is little more than an elaborate, populist star vehicle disguised as an existential The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe-esque drama.

Geena Davis’ Inaugural Bentonvillle Film Fest Promotes Femme Filmmakers and Diversity in Media

11 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bentonville, Arkanasas, a sleepy, tree-lined city that exudes a Norman Rockwell-esque vibe but whose citizenry is primarily made up of Walmart employees, morphed into a professional powerhouse of female filmmakers, artists and media gurus May 5-9 for the first annual Bentonville Film Festival, co-founded by Trevor Drinkwater and Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender and Media and sponsored by Walmart and Coca-Cola.

Bentonville was abuzz with a parade of A-list celebrities, such as helmer Catherine Hardwicke (“Thirteen,” “Twilight”), Robert De Niro, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Rosie O’Donnell, who flocked to the fest to inspire, educate and promote diversity and gender equality in film and TV, and to encourage an increase in the number of women working both in front and behind the camera.

First Look at Quentin Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight' Wins the Mustache Contest

8 May 2015 4:48 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Entertainment Weekly has released the cover for their next issue, which boasts the world's first official look at Quentin Tarantino's next movie, The Hateful Eight. And not only do we get to see a three of the film's eight badasses, but the cover also promises it's the "meanest, grittiest, and deadliest movie of the year." Normally we'd just chalk that up to marketing speak, but since this is Tarantino we're talking about, we won't be surprised in the slightest if it were true. And we actually kind of hope it is, especially if it means seeing this ridiculous cast completely cut loose: Samuel L. Jackson Jennifer Jason Leigh Kurt Russell Tim Roth Michael Madsen Walton Goggins Bruce Dern Demián Bichir James Parks Zoe Bell As...

First The Hateful Eight Pictures Reveal Quentin Tarantino’s Fur-Covered Cast

8 May 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday we got our first official look at three cast members in costume from Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Western The Hateful Eight, and today the first images from the film reveal the entire lineup in all their bundled-up glory. The story takes place a few years after the Civil War and revolves around a group of traveling strangers who are forced to take refuge together at a bar when a snowstorm hits the Wyoming landscape. This being a Tarantino film and all, we can safely assume the characters don’t become best friends by the movie's end. These new images reveal the full “Hateful Eight”, and they are as follows: Kurt Russell as John Ruth, a “mean sonuvabitch” bounty hunter on his way to Red Rock with a murderous woman in tow. Samuel L. Jackson as Major Marquis Warren, a former Union officer who lives in the Wyoming mountains. Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue, »
