Last Minute Shopping for the Drama Lover

16 December 2010 10:02 PM, PST | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

It’s getting late in the season, and most of you (though probably not as many as you’d think) have already finished all of your holiday shopping. In the last minute rush, though, things get kind of foggy, and you’re more likely than ever to make woefully undercooked decisions that seem borderline psychotic the instant that ripped open wrapping paper reveals them to your friends and family. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t take risks, as most of the best presents are completely unexpected, and demonstrate that you trust in the receiver’s intelligence and sense of adventure (which might be worth it alone). Even if stores have everything on their wish list in stock, you might want to think twice. Titles here are linked to their Amazon pages.

Release Dates Set for ‘Wrath of the Titans,’ ‘Drive,’ and ‘Win Win’

15 December 2010 11:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Time to mark up your calendar. Three films, each of which is aimed at a very different audience, have set release dates. Let's get the ugly one out of the way first: Warner Bros. has locked Wrath of the Titans, directed by Jonathan Liebesman, for March 30, 2012 -- basically the same place in the calendar that saw the release of Clash of the Titans this year. Liam Neeson will return [1] as Zeus, and presumably Sam Worthington and Gemma Arterton will reprise their roles from Clash as well. After the break, dates and recap info for Tom McCarthy's Win Win and Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive. Then there's Win Win, the new film from Tom McCarthy (The Station Agent, The Visitor, Game of Thrones) that stars  Melanie Lynskey, Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan and Jeffrey Tambor. The film will premiere at Sundance in January, and then open on March 25, 2011. A synopsis from »

Wrath of the Titans, Drive, and Win Win Set Release Dates

14 December 2010 7:37 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

We have one big blockbuster release date set, as well as a few for some smaller films, all found on Bom. After the disappointing, but profitable Clash of the Titans, Warner Bros. is springing back with their sequel, Wrath of the Titans. The studio has set a release date of March 30th, 2012. This is the exact time-frame in which its predecessor was released.

Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman is set to helm Wrath of the Titans, with Dan Mazeau, David Johnson, and Green Lantern writer Greg Berlanti as the super team currently working on the script. It was previously rumored that James Franco and Javier Bardem would also join the film. Bardem is looking at the character of Ares, the god of war, while Franco would play Agenor, son of Poseidon. Liam Neeson will reprise his role as Zeus.

Next up are two of my most anticipated films of »

“Helena From The Wedding”‘S Joe Infantolino

12 November 2010 9:03 AM, PST | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

A few characters and a house — it’s one of the most durable movie starting-points, especially for first-time filmmakers. The latest to use the economy and natural dramatic focus of this concept is producer-turned-director Joe Infantolino, whose Helena from the Wedding opens today. Newlyweds Alex and Alice invite another couple for a New Year’s party at their mountain cabin. But when the quite beautiful and very single Helena is added to the mix, relationship fissures ensue. Helena from the Wedding is a deftly directed and very well acted film, a modest yet rewarding debut from Infantolino, whose producer credits include Run, Fatboy, Run, Face, and Our Song. Particularly notable among the cast is Melanie Lynskey (pictured), who debuted as the teen killer in Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures and was most recently seen in The Informant!, Up in the Air, and Away We Go. I spoke to Infantolino very briefly… »

2011 Sundance Predictions: Tom McCarthy's Win Win

6 November 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

#49. Win Win - Tom McCarthy If Fox Searchlight execs still have enough energy left in the tank after a busy end of 2010, then they might begin the year with a bang, and put Tom McCarthy's second film into early circulation. Ideally, if Win Win is eventually pegged with an eventual spring release, then a showing at Sundance would help with early buzz. Sundance was the second stop for McCarthy's intro to filmmaking with The Visitor, and with a cast comprised of Melanie Lynskey, Paul Giamatti, Amy Ryan and Jeffrey Tambor, this smells like a dramedy fit for the snowy Park City backdrop. Disheartened attorney Mike Flaherty (Giamatti), who moonlights as a high school wrestling coach, stumbles across a star athlete through some questionable business dealings while trying to support his family. Just as it looks like he will get a double payday, the boy's mother shows up fresh from rehab and flat broke, »

Thoughts on... Up in the Air (2009)

6 November 2010 9:12 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Up in the Air, 2009.

Directed by Jason Reitman.

Starring George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, Melanie Lynskey, Zach Galifianakis, J. K. Simmons and Sam Elliott.

Synopsis:

An airborne corporate downsizer discovers that life on the move can be a lonely business.

There are basically two George Clooneys. There’s the lovable, charming, cocky George. You know the suave Danny Ocean type with that irresistible playful glimmer in his eye. And then there’s cold, calculating, enigmatic Mr Clooney, who oozes just as much mysterious charisma as George, but from a more serious, furrowed face. Like the bearded suit in Syriana or what I imagine the detached, ruthless assassin to be like in Anton Corbjin’s upcoming picturesque character study, The American. The grave Mr Clooney doesn’t get out so much, not because he’s not up to scratch, but because the whole wide world can’t seem to get enough of George. »

Jenna Fischer Falls For A Giant Mechanical Man

5 November 2010 6:12 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There used to be more a web of secrecy around movie news, at least for the average person. When news did come, it was a deluge of information, giving you who, what, when, and where, usually in trailer form. Things are different now. First we report on a pitch, then a go-ahead, then a director or script, then maybe the lead actor and then probably another story on the main supports. Not so with The Giant Mechanical Man. Here is all the information you could ever care to know. According to IndieWire, Lee Kirk.s new romantic comedy will see Jenna Fischer as a lovely and kind zoo attendant falling for a street performer played by Melanie Lynskey.s sad husband in Away We Go. His name is Chris Messina in case you.re wondering. Rounding out the cast are Topher Grace playing a brash motivational speaker and Malin Akerman »

Two and a Half Men Review: "The Crazy Bitch Gazette"

2 November 2010 7:54 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

You would think all the controversy surrounding Charlie Sheen in the celebrity gossip world would some how affect me watching Two and a Half Men.  But then you realize you're watching a show about a womanizing alcoholic who hires prostitutes on the show nearly weekly.

So really?  What respectable Two and a Half Men fan could complain about Sheen's crazy night out with an escort while sleeping next door to his kids.  That's our Charlie.  We're done rambling about real world Charlie, and ready to head back to the fictional one.

On this week's episode, "The Crazy Bitch Gazette," we finally got the much anticipated return of Rose (Melanie Lynskey) in a big way.  Rose not only served as the catalyst to break up Michelle and Charlie, but she even used an elaborate, hilarious fake wedding to possibly win over her stalkee's heart.

So did the episode live up to the hype in our heads? »

Selma Blair, Melanie Lynskey, Rhona Mitra And Lorena Rincon Will Tend World War I Soldiers

21 October 2010 8:33 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Lorena Rincon is Venezuelan, Selma Blair American, Melanie Lynskey from New Zealand and Rhona Mitra from London, but all four are about to help out the British armed forces. The quartet of actresses are set to star in the World War I period film Four Saints, which according to Variety tells the story of young women who opened a medical dressing station on the Allied front lines during the battle. Cary Elwes and Arnold Volsoo also star in the film. Jean-Pierre Isbouts wrote the book the film will be based on, Angels in Flanders, and he'll also be writing and directing as his feature narrative debut-- he previously made documentaries tied into two recent releases, Valkyrie and The Golden Compass. Normally the whole "writer/director adapting his own book" thing directly correlates to a disastrous film, but Isbouts seems to have enough of a filmmaking background to know what he's »

Kathryn Hahn Joins Wanderlust; Lorena Rincon, Rhona Mitra, Selma Blair, and Melanie Lynskey to Star in Four Saints

20 October 2010 9:02 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The cast for writer-director David Wain’s new comedy Wanderlust is filling out and it’s been quite impressive. Wain co-wrote and directed Paul Rudd in Role Models, which I feel was the best comedy of 2008. Now Variety is reporting that Kathryn Hahn (Crossing Jordan, Step Brothers) will join Wain and Rudd in Wanderlust, and I can’t wait to see what wild antics she will undoubtedly have. Meanwhile, news about the World War I drama Four Saints from multi-talented Jean-Pierre Isbouts has arrived. Variety reports that Lorena Rincon, Rhona Mitra, Selma Blair, and Melanie Lynskey will topline the upcoming war drama written and directed by Isbouts. Hit the jump for further details on the cast of Wanderlust and what Four Saints is all about.

Wain has been slowly gathering a great cast around Wanderlust, as Hahn will join Rudd, Jennifer Aniston, Malin Akerman, Alan Alda, Justin Theroux, and Ray Liotta. »

DVD Review: Uneven ‘Leaves of Grass’ Delves Into High-Minded Farce

20 October 2010 5:59 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – As special effects technology continues to become more advanced, filmmakers have found increasingly convincing ways of allowing actors to give dual performances in the same movie, and often in the same frame. This can be achieved in a variety of ways, from the exquisite trick photography in “Moon” to the seamless digital creation of the Winklevi in “The Social Network.”

Yet as flawless as the technology may be, the success of the performance still hinges on the level of authentic chemistry an actor can generate between two interacting personas. Nicholas Cage pulled off this feat brilliantly in “Adaptation,” and now Edward Norton rises to the challenge in Tim Blake Nelson’s “Leaves of Grass,” a weirdly uneven mixture of “Adaptation” and “Pineapple Express.” Like Cage, Norton is given the task of playing identical twins whose personalities couldn’t be more different. It’s a splendid showcase role, enabling Norton »

Leaves of Grass | Review

21 September 2010 10:44 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Director: Tim Blake Nelson Writer: Tim Blake Nelson Starring: Edward Norton, Richard Dreyfuss, Susan Sarandon, Melanie Lynskey, Keri Russell, Tim Blake Nelson Bill Kincaid (Edward Norton) escaped Little Dixie, Oklahoma several years ago and has never looked back. Having completely shed the accent of his roots, Bill currently resides in Providence, Rhode Island where he is a published author and Classics professor at Brown University (Harvard is primed to offer him a chance to open his own law and philosophy hybrid department). Leaves of Grass opens as Bill lectures to his class on the Socratic ideals of self-discipline and control (and the dangerous illusion of thinking you have succeeded in abiding by this philosophy).This scene is not merely to show the audience that Bill is a professor, but to establish the philosophical tone. (Later, a young female student throws herself at Bill – his self-restraint would make Socrates proud.) Meanwhile, »
