HBO’s successful track record for period dramas looks set to continue if this latest piece of industry chatter comes to fruition. This time, they are taking a step into the history of Latin America. As of today, the premium cable network are setting the wheels in motion for a drama series inspired by the life of the Spanish conquistador, Cortes.

All three will executive produce along with Laura Bickford, Rick Yorn and Emma Tillinger Koskoff.

Here’s a riddle for you: what do Michelangelo Antonioni, Terry Gilliam, Kihachi Okamoto, and Todd Haynes all have in common? Answer: each has at least one film among Criterion’s slate of upcoming releases due in the next few months.

The film has been restored in 4K for maximum eyeball pleasure.

17 November 2014 1:42 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you're reading this you're likely a fan of the Criterion Collection, which also means as much as you may be interested to know what new titles are coming to the collection in February 2015, if you aren't yet aware, Barnes & Noble is currently having their 50% of Criterion sale right now, click here for more on that. However, if you're already hip to the sale, let's have a look at the new titles that were just announced.

The release includes a new high-definition digital restoration, a short video titled Le scenario created by Godard to secure financing for the film, »

Channing Tatum Talks Nudity and the 'Stripper Odyssey' that Will be 'Magic Mike Xxl'

17 November 2014 12:14 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Channing Tatum is the man of the hour (more on that at the bottom of this post) as Foxcatcher made its way into six theaters this weekend and made an impressive $270,877 for a per theater average of $45,146. But as much as people want to talk about the movie that might earn him his first Oscar nomination, the conversation continues to turn to Magic Mike Xxl, the sequel to the break out hit Magic Mike. In the film, Tatum reprises his role as the titular male stripper as he and his boys hit the road toward a stripper convention, or as Tatum has referred to the road tip movie with Time, it's a "stripper odyssey". Channing Tatum: It sucks that we do these Magic Mike movies for such efficient means and time. The first movie took 22 or 23 days, and this movie took 29 days. Those guys are so much fun -- »

Den Of Geek Book Club: Final Cut – Dreams and Disaster in the Making of Heaven’s Gate

17 November 2014 1:38 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Aliya tackles Steven Bach's account of the making of 1980 epic Western Heaven's Gate in this month's non-fiction film book club...

When I think of big business in the United States at the end of the 1970s I think of something out of Dallas or Dynasty: deals being brokered over chunky telephones or long lunches; penthouse offices with granite desks and shag-pile carpets; male executives with heart conditions, bleeding ulcers, and good-looking secretaries. This is absolutely the world you step into when you read Final Cut. The first thing to say about the book is that feeling of glee you get from that realisation that your mental image of Hollywood at that time turns out to be true.

Steven Bach was the Senior Vice President of United Artists at the moment when Michael Cimino became the hottest director in Hollywood. His film The Deer Hunter (1978) was proclaimed a masterpiece by many and won five Oscars, »

Bennett Miller's long road with 'Foxcatcher' appears to have been worth the wait

14 November 2014 1:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Director Bennett Miller has waited for "Foxcatcher" to hit theaters longer than you might have thought. He was actually hoping to shoot the film before 2011's  "Moneyball," but got sidetracked stepping in for Steven Soderbergh on what eventually became a Best Picture-nominated smash. In fact, "Foxcatcher" has been in the works for so long that it was actually the first project Annapurna Pictures was prepared to fund before they found success with such films as "The Master" and "Zero Dark Thirty." After earning critical acclaim at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Miller has had to wait another six months for his passion project to finally hit theaters. Which brings us to today. "Foxcatcher" is now playing in New York and Los Angeles and its public debut found new raves from the papers of record (New York Times and Los Angeles Times). Star Steve Carell is one of the major contenders for »

Jude Law to play the villain in Guy Ritchie's King Arthur

14 November 2014 6:40 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Jude Law never quite hit the leading man status that everyone anticipated he would reach, but that has not stopped him from having something of a McConaussance in the last few years. Despite the high profile Watson role in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes films, Law has been mostly appearing in smaller thrillers like Steven Soderbergh's Contagion and Side Effects, the animated Rise Of The Guardians, the excellent Dom Hemingway, and the upcoming Black Sea. Law may find his stock becoming more »

'Foxcatcher' Review: 10 Things You Should Know About the Starry Drama

14 November 2014 6:20 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Bennett Miller is a filmmaker who knows a good true story when he sees one. The director, who got his start with the documentary "The Cruise," and then directed the critically adored, Oscar-strewn films "Capote" and "Moneyball," both of which were based on real life accounts of very different events (the making of Truman Capote's "In Cold Blood" and then something involving math and baseball). For his latest film, "Foxcatcher," Miller once again dips into the reservoir of real life tragedy to come up with his dramatic inspiration.

"Foxcatcher" is based on a famous incident in 1996 when John Du Pont (played in the film by Steve Carell), a multimillionaire weirdo, murdered Mark Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo), an Olympic wrestler, on his vast estate (named Foxcatcher). Du Pont fancied himself a wrestling fanatic (and amateur coach) and wanted to will a team to Olympic glory basically through money and weird encouragement. »

The Imitation Game and important biopics

13 November 2014 2:23 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With Benedict Cumberbatch playing Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, James explores the importance of a good biopic...

Benedict Cumberbatch is Alan Turing. Benedict Cumberbatch is also the most popular Sherlock Holmes in history, the terrible and stupendous dragon Smaug in The Hobbit film adaptations and the ultimate nemesis that is Khan in the alternate-timeline that constitutes the Star Trek reboot movie cycle.

Benedict Cumberbatch is also set to become Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - the hottest multi-franchise in the galaxy (several galaxies, actually) and the multifaceted pop-cultural entity magnetically attracting the most fascination and speculation right now (even more than the upcoming Star Wars sequels, which Cumberbatch has also been heavily linked with. In all likelihood, for all we know, Benedict Cumberbatch is also a Star Wars secret).

Benedict Cumberbatch is also Benedict Cumberbatch - one of the most in-demand actors alive with a cult-like fan »

Michael Douglas Wraps "Ant-Man" Filming

12 November 2014 7:14 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filming on Marvel's "Ant-Man" continues in Georgia this week, but one cast member won't be involved - Michael Douglas. Douglas has posted on his Facebook page that he's wrapped his scenes as Hank Pym on the production, completing his final scene this past weekend. Marvel puts aside time for additional filming closer to release, so Douglas may be back as Pym for further filming down the line.

He also posted an image of himself standing alongside longtime stunt double Mike Runyard, whom he has worked with for the past twenty-six years including such films as Ridley Scott's "Black Rain," Danny DeVito's "The War of the Roses," Paul Verhoeven's "Basic Instinct," Joel Schumacher's "Falling Down," Curtis Hanson's "Wonder Boys," Barry Levinson's "Disclosure," David Fincher's "The Game" and Steven Soderbergh's "Behind the Candelabra".

Quentin Tarantino Says He Will Retire After Ten Films

11 November 2014 3:27 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

I guess it is true. All good things must come to an end some day and it seems like that day is coming soon for Quentin Tarantino and the fans of his movies.

According to Deadline, the Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained director is planning on retiring after he makes his tenth film (which means one more after his next one, The Hateful Eight).

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off…I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more,” the director said during an American Film Market panel. “I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard.”

Adorable Set Photos Prove Magic Mike Xxl Will Be the Greatest Stripping Sequel Ever Made

View Photo Gallery

We know we’re supposed to be gushing over Channing Tatum‘s Oscar worthy performance in Foxcatcher right now, but can we talk about Magic Mike Xxl for just a second? The sequel to Steven Soderbergh‘s 2012 film doesn’t come out until 2015 and we’re already obsessed, thanks to adorable photos from set. Fact: These guys don’t have to be naked or even semi-naked to melt our hearts.

Filming wrapped last week after a 29-day shoot. Between smiling selfies and gorgeous Southern locales of Savannah and Myrtle Beach, the guys are clearly ecstatic to get out of Tampa. Despite the loss of Matthew McConaughey, and the inconsistent history of sequels, let’s have faith in the uber charisma of Tatum — whose recent acceptance into the hallowed grounds of award season films only boosts his starpower. And if you’re still not convinced: He plays pool with reporters! »

Open Windows | Review

Peeping Tom: Vigalondo’s Virtual Voyeurism Thriller Too Wrapped Up in Tech

In the barest possible sense, Nacho Vigalondo’s latest film, Open Windows, can perhaps be described as Hitchcockian due to the fact that it concerns a voyeuristic male utilizing an opportunity to secretly observe a beautiful female a la a modernized Rear Window sort of set-up. Whether homage or coincidence, parallels with Hitchcock die out past Vigalondo’s log line and instead the film becomes yet another vehicle for an Elijah Wood protagonist to be manipulated in highly unlikely and increasingly silly fashion. Though Vigalondo has a rather inspired visual template for the unfolding of the narrative, much like the earlier release of technologically inspired Dutch film App, it’s a design that will only serve to hopelessly date the film which relays its tale via webcams in rudimentary form, making it also reminiscent of that multiple simultaneous perspective Mike Figgis film, »

Can Keanu Reeves save cinema?

7 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Most big-budget action movies these days are just cartoons directed by bad animators. Somewhere between The Matrix and The Bourne Identity, the whole genre lost its brawl. You've seen one superhero defend his city from an airship armada, you've seen every superhero defend his city from an airship armada. Then there's John Wick. Simple story, not-so-simple thrills. The story: Someone kills an assassin's dog, and the assassin (Keanu Reeves) wants vengeance. The thrills: The movie constructs action scenes with patience and delicacy, filming in steady shots that track the careful choreography of Reeves' punch-shoot rampages. John Wick was directed by a stuntman, »

15 Filmmakers At The Forefront Of The TV Revolution

5 November 2014 12:30 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been a quiet sort of revolution, but it has been televised. Over the past couple of years, anyone watching carefully will have noticed a distinct phenomenon — not only are we living through the much-vaunted new "Golden Age” of television, but as both a symptom and a cause of that marked uptick in quality broadcast programming, we’ve seen a lot of our big-name feature filmmakers migrate to the cinema’s small-screen baby sister. The latest to announce a TV project is Jason Reitman, perhaps licking his wounds after the murderous reviews for “Men, Women and Children” (here’s our slightly less poisonous take), but the days of such a shift necessarily connoting a retreat are over. With established, hugely respected directors like Steven Soderbergh and Jane Campion turning in TV work that’s career-best or thereabouts, the debate about TV vs. Film quality is simply old hat.

Matt Damon to Star in Alexander Payne’s Next Film Downsizing

5 November 2014 12:29 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Matt Damon is adding yet another esteemed filmmaker to his incredible resume.  After having worked with Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Paul Greengrass, Anthony Minghella, Steven Soderbergh, Terry Gilliam, The Coen Brothers, etc., Damon is now poised to team up with Alexander Payne on the Nebraska filmmaker’s next project.  Deadline reports that Damon will lead Downsizing, which is described as a social satire and revolves around a guy who “realizes he would have a better life if he were to shrink himself.”  Payne co-wrote the film with his Sideways co-writer Jim Taylor, and the 20th Century Fox picture will be Payne’s next movie.  More after the jump, including what other project this knocks off Damon’s schedule. Further plot details are unknown for Downsizing at this time, but I’m very curious to find out if the aforementioned “shrinking” is literal or figurative—could Payne be making his own Innerspace reboot? »

Afm: Can TV Save the Indie Film Business?

5 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As independent film producers gather at Afm, one of the biggest things on their minds isn’t officially happening in the market: producing, financing and selling TV series.

“In my Cannes meetings, people were talking through their film and television slate, whereas maybe a year before everyone was just talking about their film slate,” says U.K.-based producer Iain Canning of See-Saw Films, which produced “The King’s Speech,” moved into TV with Jane Campion’s SundanceTV miniseries “Top of the Lake,” above, and is now on Steve McQueen’s HBO pilot “Codes of Conduct.” “There’s a dual agenda that I’ve never experienced before.”

Specialty film directors have lensed cable episodes for years, big-name auteurs Martin Scorsese, David Fincher and now “Birdman” helmer Alejandro G. Inarritu (Starz’s upcoming series “The One Percent”) have launched their own series, and movie stars including Scarlett Johansson (Sony Pictures TV »

5 Essential Roles That Feature Matt Bomer in His Underwear

5 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Many fans of Matt Bomer know him from his stripping in Magic Mike, but the actor has been breaking hearts as Neal Caffrey for five seasons on White Collar. Both roles are notable not only for Bomer’s charming blue eyes and fine acting, but his sculpted shirtless body as well. In fact, in most of his roles, the actor has found a way to strip down — whether by choice or courtesy of the producers’ smart decision making — for fans’ viewing pleasure.

With Bomer making his return to TV in a guest role on Ryan Murphy‘s hit FX anthology series, American Horror Story, and the debut of White Collar‘s final season, we decided to look back at all of the actor’s finest underwear roles. Warning: Butts abound.

1. Guiding Light

From 2001 to 2003, Bomer appeared on the longest-running soap opera as Ben Reade. In one particular episode, Marina (Aubrey Dollar »
