Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

SAG Nominations and Announcement of A New Feature

10 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.

Here's where a new running feature comes into play:

As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

Sundance ’15: Baumbach, Fleck/Boden, Pulcini/Berman, Ponsoldt & Another Swanberg Among Premieres

8 December 2014 1:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Last year’s slate of seventeen Narrative Premieres (excluding secret screenings of Boyhood and Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) refreshingly included works from first time filmmakers. I hadn’t seen it coming but Little Accidents and The One I Love were included among the likes of Calvary, Frank and Love is Strange. 2015 will be a true we Swanberg family affair with Joe Swanberg joining wife Kris (Unexpected) with a feature as well in Digging for Fire. James Ponsoldt is officially four for four with Sundance — his latest End of the Tour should be a slam dunk for the Eccles. Sticking to the numbers game… we’ll have a lovely bedfellow pairings of Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s already announced The Stanford Prison Experiment which is going to be mentioned in many loglines alongside Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter - about the Milgram experiment. Among the filmmaking duos we were expecting, we find Mississippi Grind »

Viola Davis, Jennifer Lopez, James Franco, Ewan McGregor, Greta Gerwig, Jesse Eisenberg, Saoirse Ronan, Ryan Reynolds, Peter Sarsgaard and Lily Tomlin — as well as directors Noah Baumbach, Michael Almereyda, Rodrigo Garcia, James Ponsoldt, Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman — are among the big names in the Premieres lineup at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, unveiled today along with Documentary Premieres and a new Special Events section.

Festival director John Cooper noted that while this year’s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City, “they’re not without an independent feel to them, and that’s what I’m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.”

By way of example, Cooper cited “Last Days in the Desert,” a description-resistant foray into father-son territory from Garcia, a director known for his stories about women (“Nine Lives,” “Mother and Child”); John Crowley’s “Brooklyn, »

Sundance: Premieres, Doc Premieres

8 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.

Justin Kelly’s I Am Michael is likely to become a major talking point and stars James Franco and Zachary Quinto in the true tale of activist and Young Gay America co-founder Michael Glatze, who renounced his homosexuality and became a Christian pastor. The Exchange handles international rights.

James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.

Five Underground(ish) Movies Streaming On Hulu

1 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Underground Film Journal | See recent Underground Film Journal news »

Underground movies don’t typically lend themselves to commercial interruption, what with their narrative experimentation and their devotion to artistic sensibilities over more profitable concerns. Plus, home media viewers are becoming more accustomed to streaming business ventures that are based financially solely on subscriber fees and not advertiser dollars, e.g. Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Still, there might be a time when a home viewer will be in the mood for something a little more off the beaten path and not want to pay for an additional subscription over what is most likely an outrageous Internet bill — and want to view that off-beat media legally.

So, in that scenario, sometimes Hulu becomes a good option for viewing an oddball movie that screened at an underground film festival — if one doesn’t mind the intrusive ads. Below are five incredible flicks that deserve to be seen, no matter what the option is. »

Learn A Lesson In Starry Trailer For Screenwriting Comedy Loitering With Intent

20 November 2014 2:09 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The creative minds behind Loitering With Intent know the perils of being a writer. Director Adam Rapp embraces the words of scribes Michael Godere and Ivan Martin, bringing to life a comedy that’s already set tongues wagging. Certain movies frame the profession, hobby or the downright obsession of writing in a neat bundle. Many of those movies never depict the reality of what it actually means to populate a life with words. So, a movie about writing a movie ought to really set the record straight once and for all, and today we’ve got a peek at the first trailer.

With a starry cast including Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally, Michael Godere, and Ivan Martin, the story revolves around a pair of unemployed actors. Struggling to make ends meet, they wangle a producer into thinking they’ve got a red hot script. With »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Loitering With Intent' With Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty & More

20 November 2014 12:53 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A ticking clock, a couple of down-on-their-luck characters, quirky situations, and one last shot at redemption—these are all familiar ingredients that could be combined to create something far less than memorable. Thankfully director Adam Rapp and screenwriters Michael Godere and Ivan Martin made something fresh with "Loitering With Intent," and the first trailer landed today. Starring Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally, Michael Godere, and Ivan Martin, the story follows Raphael and Dominic, a couple out-of-work-actors who have 10 days to deliver a script that could be their last shot for a big break. They head to Dom's sister place in upstate New York, where they think they'll be able work in seclusion, but the arrival Gigi's boyfriend Wayne and his younger brother Devon creates unexpected chaos. This one is a winner, with our review out of the Tribeca Film Festival calling it, "fast, funny, and incredibly. »
