Newswire: Hayao Miyazaki is coming out of retirement, just like he said he would

24 February 2017 1:26 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Japanese animation company Studio Ghibli is beloved by cinephile purists worldwide for its commitment to hand-drawn animation, but now we have to consider how much of that was because the boss man didn’t know how to use the software. The Daily Dot reports that legendary animator and Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki—who received a lifetime achievement award Oscar in 2014—is indeed coming out of retirement.

That shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, though, considering the 76-year-old Miyazaki began teasing new projects mere months after officially retiring in 2013. (He threatened to retire multiple times in the decades before that, but didn’t follow through.) He’s the Steven Soderbergh of animation in that respect.

The subject matter of the project shouldn’t be much of a surprise to dedicated Ghibli-watchers, either. Based on a report published in Kotaku last fall, Miyazaki is presumably hard at ...

‘When We Rise’ Review: Why Dustin Lance Black, Gus Van Sant, and Dee Rees’ Miniseries Should Have Been a Movie

23 February 2017 9:17 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

An onslaught of onscreen and offscreen talent unite with a clear sense of purpose in the limited series “When We Rise.” An examination of gay and women’s rights over three decades and how their causes conflict and coalesce, Dustin Lance Black’s new ABC offering emphasizes what’s possible when oppressed minorities come together and fight back against a malicious patriarchy.

There’s no shortage of modern parallels at play, and ABC is counting on the public’s revived passion for protest to drive interest in a show that honors those who paved the way with picket signs and (mostly) passive resistance. The eight-episode series written by Black (mostly) does right by its honorable cause, but it suffers from the strictures of its format. A sprawling story creates an awkward combination of history lessons and personal stories, and broadcast standards prove far too restrictive. The result is a conglomeration »

Macon Blair on His Timely Debut ‘I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore’ and Working With Steven Soderbergh

22 February 2017 11:37 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Hot on the heels of a breakout lead performance in Blue Ruin and a solid supporting turn in Jeremy Saulnier‘s follow-up Green Room, Macon Blair finds himself in the director’s chair with I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore. Starring Melanie Lynskey as Ruth, a woman at the end of her rope, the film offers a welcome and relatable catharsis to the bullshit we deal with everyday. We got a chance to sit down with Blair at Sundance, before his film picked up the Grand Jury Prize, and chat about working with Netflix, acting for Steven Soderbergh and watching your directorial debut in a new, disgruntled political age.

How does it come together after Blue Ruin and that whole ride? You had been acting for a while and then this. How does that happen? I know Anish Savjani and Filmscience were part of it.

Absolutely, »

Aki Kaurismaki Says ‘The Other Side Of Hope’ Might Be His Last Movie, But Also Teases His Next Film

20 February 2017 7:28 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here’s a pro-tip for directors: don’t announce your retirement or even a plan to chill on filmmaking because you will never hear the end of it. Just ask Steven Soderbergh who took a break from features to focus on television and other projects, or Quentin Tarantino, whose declaration he’ll be done after his tenth film will follow him around forever. Now comes Aki Kaurismaki, the Finnish arthouse filmmaker whose latest, “The Other Side Of Hope,” just premiered in Berlin, and he says he’s probably finished while also making plans for this next movie.

New to Streaming: ‘Moonlight,’ ‘Allied,’ ‘Fire at Sea,’ ‘Doctor Strange,’ and More

17 February 2017 10:50 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Allied (Robert Zemeckis)

That thing we can’t take for granted: a film whose many parts – period piece, war picture, blood-spattered actioner, deception-fueled espionage thriller, sexy romance, and, at certain turns, comedy – can gracefully move in conjunction and separate from each other, just as its labyrinthine-but-not-quite plot jumps from one setpiece to the next with little trouble in maintaining a consistency of overall pleasure. Another late-career triumph for Robert Zemeckis, »

Newswire: Steven Soderbergh’s Nascar heist movie will be released in August

17 February 2017 5:52 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Steven Soderbergh’s brief and productive retirement as a director of feature films will officially come to a close this summer. His movie Logan Lucky, about a heist at a Nascar race, will debut August 18, Entertainment Weekly reports. In a statement via EW, Soderbergh explained that the film is not merely a chance to see Channing Tatum and Adam Driver play robbing brothers, but is also part of an experiment in release strategy. “This is the result of 16 years of conversations I’ve had with Dan [Fellman] about creating a new distribution paradigm for star-driven, wide release projects,” he said. “With Logan Lucky, I have the right movie, the right team, and the right partner in Bleecker Street to test some personal theories I’ve accumulated. It’s put-up-or-shut-up time.” So maybe it will entertain and also, you know, save cinema. »

Steven Soderbergh is back. Well, kind of. He never really went away to begin with, when you consider the fact that he spent his “retirement” directing a TV movie and making a TV show and producing other shows and films and serving as cinematographer on a sequel to one of his own movies. But he’s finally returning to […]
