David Oyelowo and Ava DuVernay Talk Selma, Bringing Martin Luther King Jr. To Life On Screen, Their Most Memorable Scene, and More

16 December 2014 10:10 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Selma is a beautifully designed film that not only hits you emotionally in the gut, but also makes you feel for the humanity that the Civil Rights movement was fighting for.  While Martin Luther King Jr. was just a man, he spoke for and to people willing to defy intimidation, face economic retaliation, and endure arrests and beatings, all in hopes of provoking a transformative confrontation that would give African Americans the basic rights that they so desperately wanted and deserved.  Expertly directed by Ava DuVernay, the film stars David Oyelowo (in an award-worthy performance as Dr. King), Carmen Ejogo, Tom Wilkinson, Tim Roth, Oprah Winfrey, Andre Holland, Common, Giovanni Ribisi, Tessa Thompson, Dylan Baker, Alessandro Nivola and Omar Dorsey. During a roundtable interview at the film’s press day, actor David Oyelowo and director Ava DuVernay talked about taking on someone so very well known, never hesitating in showing »

Changing reality, part 1 by Anne-Katrin Titze

The Captive director Atom Egoyan with Anne-Katrin Titze in New York Photo: Nina Baron

Atom Egoyan's intense abduction thriller The Captive, starring Ryan Reynolds, Rosario Dawson, Scott Speedman and Mireille Enos with Kevin Durand, Alexia Fast and Bruce Greenwood, takes us to a wintry Niagara Falls and into the clutches of a hellish circle of internet predators. A house straight out of Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest turns out to be Marquis de Sade's chateau with Mozart's Magic Flute filling the icy air.

At the Crosby Street Hotel, I started with greetings from Alessandro Nivola, who is starring on Broadway with Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson in The Elephant Man. Atom and I went on to discuss the link to The Sweet Hereafter, fairy tales, Greek mythology, Cornwall and shifting perception, and ended up at Die Walküre and Remember.

‘Selma’ Cast, Director Wear ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirts at N.Y. Premiere

14 December 2014 11:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Parties and protests don’t typically overlap, but the “Selma” cast made an exception and a statement on Sunday night following the film’s Manhattan premiere. At one point during the otherwise splashy festivities, director Ava DuVernay took to the steps of the New York Public Library with actors David Oyelowo, E. Roger Mitchell, Wendell Pierce, Omar DorseyJohn Lavelle, Stephan James, Kent Faulcon, Lorraine Toussaint, Andre Holland, Tessa Thompson and Colman Domingo, donning “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts over their partywear and raising their arms in the “don’t shoot” pose.

It was not just an unusually sobering photo op, but also a direct acknowledgment of the eerie timing of Paramount’s civil rights drama, with its scenes of organized protest and its urgent plea for justice and reform. The premiere was held the same weekend that more than 25,000 men and women marched through Manhattan, in the largest protest »

'Most Violent Year' Clip: Jessica Chastain Confronts Oscar Isaac

4 December 2014 11:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Anna Morales (Jessica Chastain) confronts her husband Abel (Oscar Isaac) about a gun she found in their front yard in a new clip from A Most Violent Year. This drama is set in the winter of 1981 in New York City, statistically the most dangerous year in the city's history. Unlike the "cute little warnings" this couple has received over the past few years, Anna knows that this gun means her family is in real danger.

Director J.C. Chandor's third feature examines one immigrant's determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and - above all - his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A Most Violent Year, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right. »

New A Most Violent Year Clip Carries a Loaded Gun in the Upcoming Drama Starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain

4 December 2014 9:17 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A24 has released a new A Most Violent Year clip.  The film takes place in New York City in 1981, and stars Oscar Isaac as a businessman trying to get a loan to expand his shipping company, but must contend with pressure from his wife (Jessica Chastain), the deputy attorney general (David Oyelowo), and organized crime families.  This premise and this clip may hint at a more intense story, but the film is actually pretty dull and consists largely of Isaac's character moping around to get enough loans to save his business investment. Hit the jump to check out the A Most Violent Year clip.  The film opens in limited release on December 31st before expanding nationwide in January, and also stars Albert Brooks and Alessandro Nivola.

4 December 2014 5:38 AM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

The crime drama, written and directed by J. C. Chandor, has a strong cast that also includes Jessica Chastain, Alessandro Nivola, David Oyelowo, Albert Brooks and Catalina Sandino Moreno. [...] »

A Most Violent Year Featurette and Poster Delve Into the American Dream With Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain

26 November 2014 7:47 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A24 Films has issued a new A Most Violent Year featurette and poster in support of writer/director J.C. Chandor’s (All Is Lost) upcoming crime drama. The featurette is a nice look at not only the making of the piece, but the American economic situation that inspired it.  The film is set in New York in 1981 and revolves around “an American immigrant (Oscar Isaac) and his wife (Jessica Chastain) trying to expand their business as violence and corruption threaten to destroy all they have built.”  I'm excited to see this movie next week, I typically love Isaac and Chastain so even if it's not all that violent or action-packed, which I've heard, I should be just fine watching a solid drama featuring the pair. Check out the first A Most Violent Year featurette and poster after the jump.  The film also stars Alessandro Nivola and Albert Brooks.  A Most Violent Year »
