The Essential Films of Neil Labute, Canny Inquisitor of White People Problems

1 September 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Neil Labute aims at the angst and entitlement of yuppies like a kid with a magnifying glass, torturing ants. He writes and directs comedies where you're not really laughing: you're choking on your own discomfort as he pokes and prods the sexual crises of the bored, the rich, the spoiled, the middle-classed. Which is to say many of us. Cuckolds, man-babies and emotional eunuchs are some of the types you'll encounter in Labute's films, which are brazenly, specifically about the facade of the American hegemony, and the fictions it is barely concealing. You'd never known from his savagely charming and scabrous comedies that Labute is a lapsed Mormon who, before getting kicked out of the Church of Lds in the late-1990s for a deemed-to-be offensive off-Broadway play, started at Brigham Young, where he met one of his earliest screen co-conspirators, actor Aaron Eckhart.

Tom Hanks Gets A Wife For His Miracle On The Hudson Movie

19 August 2015 8:46 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you can land Tom Hanks as your film's dramatic lead, you're already on your way to forming a cast worth the time of your audience. When you bring Aaron Eckhart as his first co-star, the marquee starts to brighten even more . especially considering Clint Eastwood is the director lucky enough to be guiding both actors in a biopic based off of Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger's cracker jack landing on the Hudson River. With the breaking news that Laura Linney has been cast as his wife in that very film, you can bet Eastwood's latest film has a cast that award voters and casting directors alike are drooling over. The Hollywood Reporter obtained the scoop that the three-time Academy Award nominee has been cast in Sully, alongside Hanks and Eckhart who were previously announced. This film is a reunion of sorts, as Linney had previously worked with Eastwood on both »

Laura Linney to star opposite Hanks in Eastwood’s latest

18 August 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The always reliable Laura Linney is looking set to join the ever reliable Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood‘s latest effort, Sully. Eastwood‘s follow-up to the critically acclaimed American Sniper will be another true life biopic of an American Hero, this time in the form of Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, a pilot who safely landed a commercial flight in the Hudson River back in 2009 after some malicious geese with a thirst for human blood collided with the plane. Sully’s actions saved every passenger on board.

Hanks is to play the role of Sully, while Linney is intended to play the part of his wife. Aaron Eckhart will play Sully’s co-pilot. Linney has worked twice with Eastwood before, on Absolute Power and Mystic River. Linney is also keeping her career varied and interesting, having just received plaudits for Mr. Holmes and following that up with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. »

Victor Frankenstein Trailer: Daniel Radcliffe And James McAvoy Look Incredible

18 August 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

After making a splash at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, 20th Century Fox released the first Victor Frankenstein trailer. X-Men: Apocalypse.s James McAvoy and a post-Harry Potter Daniel Radcliffe star as the monster-making mavens Dr. Frankenstein and Igor in "a new twist on the legend." Watch the footage below.  Hopefully by now we all know the story of Mary Shelley.s Frankenstein . a scientist experimenting with the reanimation of corpses brings to life a man, though a monstrous man at that. There have been many spins on the tale since then, including one starring Aaron Eckhart that should stay in the shadows where it belongs, and the Victor Frankenstein trailer shows yet another, more explosive twist.  Instead of being a lonely little hunchback, as he.s commonly portrayed, Radcliffe.s Igor is Victor Frankenstein.s contemporary, and the two form a very Sherlock Holmes-y relationship.

Miles Teller Was Paid A Ridiculous Amount For Whiplash

6 August 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Miles Teller is currently blowing up, thanks to his Esquire interview read around the world. But aside from the whole "dickish" persona described in the pages . with which, by the way, the actor takes issue . we.re learning a great deal about some of his earlier projects, notably Whiplash. Though the film ended up getting nominated for a number of Oscars, the lead star got paid a pretty low number for the project.  How low, exactly? $8,000. That may seem like a lot to some people, but when you factor in the months of production needed to make any feature film, it.s pretty low. Though, it is more than he was paid when he was first starting out.  Teller.s first feature film was Rabbit Hole in 2010. The film starred Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart as a couple who lose their son in an accident. Teller plays the boy responsible »
