‘Strange Weather’ Review: Holly Hunter’s Amazing Performance Proves She’s Still One of Our Best Actresses

3 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first thing we learn about Katherine Dieckmann’s “Strange Weather” is it’s set on the 88th consecutive day without rain in a tiny Georgia town. Plants are wilting; so are people. Everyone is hysterical and exhausted, and no one more so than Darcy Baylor (Holly Hunter). Crackling with the actress’ firecracker energy, early introductions to Darcy’s life make it clear that there are still plenty of secrets left to be told.

In her first feature since 2009’s “Motherhood,” Dieckmann’s film is the kind of showcase that many actresses over 40 would kill to get — but Hunter is made for it. Joined by recent Emmy nominee Carrie Coon as Byrd, her best friend, neighbor, and co-worker, “Strange Weather” is the sort of film that passes the Bechdel Test 20 times over, while also proving why the metric is so important in the first place. Made by and about women, »

‘Logan Lucky’ TV Spot Teases an All-American Heist Movie

20 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It's been an uncharacteristically long wait for the next Steven Soderbergh movie. The director delivered almost two movies a year in the first decade of the 2000s, but after his 2013 twosome Side Effects and Behind the Candelabra, Soderbergh took a hiatus from feature filmmaking. Fortunately, we had his excellent Cinemax series The Knick to tide us over and now the wait is over with Logan Lucky. Scripted by Rebecca Blunt, the film stars Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as two brothers determined to reverse their family's decades of bad luck by pulling off an elaborate, multi-million … »

‘Logan Lucky’ Review: Steven Soderbergh Returns With Well-Oiled Heist Flick

25 July 2017 7:23 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The biscuits-and-grits comic caper “Logan Lucky” is Steven Soderbergh’s return to movies after a self-imposed retirement from feature directing that no one really believed he would adhere to — especially considering how well-received his TV forays were during that time. (They included the strange and gaudy “Behind the Candelabra” for HBO and the evocative, period-immersive Cinemax series “The Knick.”) Like the proverbial top-drawer safecracker drawn by the lure of a juices-invigorating job, the “Ocean’s” movies’ steward has given first-time screenwriter Rebecca Blunt’s race-car robbery romp his undivided attention, and produced a precision-timed entertainment that, if not among his best efforts, »

Daniel Craig is Returning as 007 for Bond 25, Sources Say It’s a ‘Done Deal’

25 July 2017 5:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Daniel Craig isn’t stepping away from 007 after all. The actor is set to reprise his role as the world’s most famous British Secret Service agent for a fifth time on the big screen, following “Casino Royale,” “Quantum of Solace,” “Skyfall” and “Spectre.” Two sources close to production have confirmed the news with The New York Times, citing Craig’s return to the franchise as a “done deal.”

Craig’s return to 007 was a giant question mark following the release of “Spectre” in November 2015. He went on record saying he would never want to take on the part again (“I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” he told a British magazine), though he also called playing Bond the “best job in the world” in a later interview. Rumors were percolating that Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, »

‘Mister Universo’ Review: You’ll (Almost) Want to Run Away and Join the Circus

24 July 2017 5:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The circus isn’t as romantic as it used to be. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey recently closed their tent for the final time after 146 years, the plight of animal performers is much too sad to ignore, and anyone with an affinity for peanuts can go to the ballpark instead. At the margins, though, there’s still a world of acrobats, bearded ladies, and lion tamers trekking from town to town as they eke out an existence at risk of fading away entirely — a world given beautiful expression in “Mister Universo.”

Not since “Big Fish” have we seen this world onscreen in such vivid detail, though Tizza Covi and Rainer Frimmel’s scope isn’t as grandiose or fantastical as Tim Burton’s. A docudrama that in its early scenes feels like a documentary — the co-directors have a nonfiction background, and the actors are actual carnival performers — the film plays »

New James Bond Movie Officially Announced For 2019

24 July 2017 1:12 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The timing for this bit of news is certainly….interesting. Today, the review embargo lifted on Steven Soderbergh‘s “Logan Lucky,” which finds Daniel Craig giving a comic performance unlike anything we’ve seen from the actor. It’s a big step away from the brooding visage we’re used to seeing from the actor in the James Bond films, but perhaps he’s gearing up to give it one more go.

‘Logan Lucky’ Is A Whip-Smart, Laugh-Out-Loud Funny Romp [Review]

24 July 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Since coming out of a brief retirement from filmmaking following the release of his Liberace biopic for HBO “Behind the Candelabra,” Steven Soderbergh has been awfully busy. Amongst his many projects, he shot, edited, and directed two entire seasons of Cinemax‘s overlooked medical drama “The Knick,” directed an off-Broadway play called “The Library,” edited and shot male stripper sequel “Magic Mike Xxl,” and released a series of weird fan edits of famous films, including “Heaven’s Gate” and “2001: A Space Odyssey,” plus “Psychos,” a mirrored mash-up of both Alfred Hitchcock‘s original film and Gus Van Sant‘s remake.

Film Review: Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Logan Lucky’

24 July 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Soderbergh’s “Logan Lucky” is a high-spirited, low-down blast. It’s a let’s-rob-the-racetrack heist comedy set in that all-American place that even rednecks would have no problem calling redneck country: the land of Nascar and child beauty pageants, spangly long fingernails and roadside biker-bar brawls, and — these days being what they are — chronic unemployment and spiritual stagnation. (Hey, nothing’s perfect.) The script, by Rebecca Blunt (it’s her first, and it’s a beauty), exploits the Southern gift for turning something as basic as a series of freeway directions into a tall tale. And Soderbergh, directing his first feature in four years (his last one was the superb HBO Liberace biopic “Behind the Candelabra”), plays, with an invisible wink, off the natural-born comedy of mile-wide drawls that veer from the charmingly folksy into a kind of good-ol’-boy theater (lying about your alibi, it turns out, is even more effective when you do it »

Logan Lucky review – Soderbergh roars back with a riotous heist caper

24 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig star in a comic thriller brimming with energy and wit from the returning Ocean’s Eleven director

It seems, at first, like an impossible caper. Can Steven Soderbergh bring something new to the heist genre after his outstanding Oceans trilogy? The answer, as always, is to have faith in the director-producer-writer-cinematographer-editor-brandy salesman whose ingenuity has kept him one step ahead of audiences for almost 30 years.

Channing Tatum, working with Soderbergh for the fourth time, is at his sympathetic and charismatic best in Logan Lucky. His Jimmy Logan is a divorced father, injured Iraq war vet, John Denver enthusiast and loving sibling living in Boone County, West Virginia. His wounded leg gets him fired from a construction gig at the Charlotte Motor Speedway because it’s “a pre-existing condition”.

'Logan Lucky': Film Review

24 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Logan Lucky is a redneck Ocean's Eleven. For his first feature film in four years, Steven Soderbergh has snuck back in on a back road with a goofy and steadily amusing tale of born losers in West Virginia who try to hit the jackpot by divesting an auto raceway of a few million bills. This loose and shambling tale with a very attractive cast is highlighted by a wonderfully wacky, show-stealing turn by Daniel Craig as a down-home career criminal.

There is definitely an audience for this likeable but no-big-deal film and probably even two »

‘Logan Lucky’ Review: Steven Soderbergh Returns From Retirement with a Silly Heist Movie That Has Real Soul

24 July 2017 9:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don’t call it a comeback (he’s been here for years), but Steven Soderbergh’s self-imposed exile from film directing is officially over, and his inevitable return to the big screen confirms what most of us have known all along: The guy is a lot better at making movies than he is at not making movies.

Hollywood’s most restless iconoclast, Soderbergh couldn’t take a vacation if his life depended on it; his “retirement” was shorter than the break that many major directors routinely take between projects, and during that time he directed two staggeringly great seasons of “The Knick,” executive produced both “Red Oaks” and “The Girlfriend Experience,” and shot one of the defining cinematic experiences of this or any other century, “Magic Mike Xxl” (just kidding, he also edited it). He really likes to work, and he’ll go wherever he can work in peace.

‘Detroit’ Review: Kathryn Bigelow’s Harrowing Docudrama Is a Bumpy but Bracingly Physical Portrait of Race in America

23 July 2017 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Exploding across the stressed out summer of 2017 like a powder keg thrown into a room that’s already on fire, Kathryn Bigelow’s hectic but harrowing docudrama account of the 1967 Detroit riots is inevitably as concerned with the persistence of systemic racism as it is with its past. The years between now and then have made it impossible to isolate the two — names like Tamir Rice and Philando Castile have disallowed us from deluding ourselves into thinking what’s done is done. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Nevertheless, there’s something broadly instructive about a major director choosing this moment to make a movie about this episode in the fraught history of American race relations. With Ferguson still so close in the rearview mirror, with Eric Garner still so fresh in so many minds, not even the whitest of viewers (or filmmakers) can look at »

‘Stranger Things’ Season 2: Cast Breaks Down New Characters, Villains, and ‘Sexy Scenes’ at Comic-Con

22 July 2017 5:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The highlight of the “Stranger Things” Comic-Con panel was the Season 2 trailer, and not just for the fans. Everyone on stage, from moderator Patton Oswalt to new cast member Paul Reiser, were visibly shaken by the wild first look at the new season.

Their reaction combined with how little they were allowed to say only added to the mystery surrounding the upcoming episodes. Oswalt repeatedly chastised himself for asking questions that were too spoiler-centric, but a few telling answers were given, especially about the new cast and character arcs for Season 2.

After speaking with the creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, and producer Shawn Levy to kick off the panel, Oswalt brought out the cast, including Natalia Dyer, Joe Keery, David Harbour, Matthew Modine, Caleb McLaughlin, Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp, Finn Wolfhard, and Millie Bobby Brown.

Volcano is Fearless Finney Showcase: L.A. Screening with Bisset in Attendance

21 July 2017 4:01 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Under the Volcano' screening: John Huston's 'quality' comeback starring daring Albert Finney As part of its John Huston film series, the UCLA Film & Television Archive will be presenting the 1984 drama Under the Volcano, starring Albert Finney, Jacqueline Bisset, and Anthony Andrews, on July 21 at 7:30 p.m. at the Billy Wilder Theater in the Los Angeles suburb of Westwood. Jacqueline Bisset is expected to be in attendance. Huston was 77, and suffering from emphysema for several years, when he returned to Mexico – the setting of both The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and The Night of the Iguana – to direct 28-year-old newcomer Guy Gallo's adaptation of English poet and novelist Malcolm Lowry's 1947 semi-autobiographical novel Under the Volcano, which until then had reportedly defied the screenwriting abilities of numerous professionals. Appropriately set on the Day of the Dead – 1938 – in the fictitious Mexican town of Quauhnahuac (the fact that it sounds like Cuernavaca is no coincidence »

Steven Soderbergh Secretly Shot a Film on His iPhone

20 July 2017 7:42 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

While we’ll likely never see (an admittedly amazing-sounding) third season of The Knick, Steven Soderbergh now has more time on his hands, which means not only are we getting the higher-profile heist comedy Logan Lucky in just under a month, but the director also found time to direct another feature under the radar.

The Magic Mike director went ahead and finished production on a new film titled Unsane, starring Claire Foy (The Crown) and Juno Temple (Killer Joe), The Tracking Board reports. One to always be experimenting with new technology and production methods, while not much is known about the project, Soderbergh did shoot the entire film on an iPhone, a process that Sean Baker has proven can be quite beautiful.

As far as a minor hint of what to expect, the director did chime on Reddit recently that he was considering returning to a subject he captured in »

The Tracking Board has revealed that Katherine Waterston (Alien: Covenant) and Sunny Suljic (The Killing of a Sacred Deer) have signed on to star in Mid-90s, the upcoming directorial debut of Jonah Hill.

Waterston plays Stevie’s single mother (a role which was previously set to be filled by Michelle Williams, who left the project due to scheduling issues), while Lucas Hedges (Manchester By the Sea) is portraying his troubled older brother.

Katherine Waterston is currently reprising the role of Tina Goldstein in Warner Bros.Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel, and will next be seen in Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky »
