Adding Possible 2016 Oscar Contenders in 'Trumbo', 'Splash', 'Grind' and 'Face'

27 February 2015 3:15 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I know, I know... it's early in the year and the Oscars just ended and Oh my God what are you doingc Yet, the wheels keep turning and I like to be ahead of the game rather than playing catch up at the end of the year so I'm trying to make sure the database is locked and loaded for Oscar 2016 and I just got done adding a few contenders, contenders such as... Luca Guadagnino's A Bigger Splash, which Fox Searchlight just acquired for distribution starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Tilda Swinton, Ralph Fiennes, Dakota Johnson and Aurore Clement. The pic centers on a high profile couple, a famous rock star and a filmmaker (Schoenaerts and Swinton), vacationing and recovering on the idyllic sun-drenched and remote Italian island of Pantelleria are disrupted by the unexpected visit of an old friend and his daughter (Fiennes and Johnson) - creating a whirlwind of jealousy, »

26 February 2015 10:45 AM, PST | | See recent news »

For two seasons now, Allison Janney has found big, unexpected laughs in Bonnie Plunket’s struggle for sobriety on CBS’ Mom.

This week, however, her character discovers a new type of intoxication: “Instead of getting drunk with alcohol,” Janney teases, “she gets drunk with her newfound power and status as secretary of her AA meeting.”

Better Call Saul episode 4 review: Hero

24 February 2015 11:55 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Slippin' Jimmy slides even further down that slippery moral slope in this week's entertaining episode of Better Call Saul...

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 Hero

“You’re the kind of lawyer guilty people hire,” Betsy Kettleman tells Jimmy McGill, matter-of-factly. It’s one of comparatively few instances in another very good episode of Better Call Saul where someone straightforwardly tells someone else the truth. Mostly, from the Kettlemans burbling about “human slavery” to Jimmy trying way too hard to convince his brother that nothing dodgy is afoot, it’s wall-to-wall bullshitting, with people lying to themselves and to each other left, right and centre.

What’s more, Jimmy knows that it’s true. You can see it in his eyes, and in what it spurs him on to do. His blustering and attempts to take umbrage at the very idea of someone offering him a bribe are half-hearted at best, but »

'Better Call Saul': Jimmy Opens Door to "Relentless" Threat

23 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Monday's episode of Better Call Saul, "Hero."] This list of pepole Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) has ticked off is growing fast. On Monday's Better Call Saul, he duped Howard (Patrick Fabian) into making Jimmy look like a hero and accepted a bribe from The Kettlemans (Julie Ann Emery and Jeremy Shamos), becoming party to their embezzlement crime.   In Breaking Bad, Walter (Bryan Cranston) constantly had to keep tabs of multiple players, and sometimes it was the ones he didn't initially worry about that grew into major threats. In Saul, Nacho (Michael Mando) seems to be a strong

'Better Call Saul': Michael Mando Teases 'Breaking Bad' Crossovers, Nacho's Fate and More!

23 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

If you're in a bind, then you'd better call Saul. But if Jimmy McGill is in trouble -- he's calling Nacho.

After only three episodes, we at ETonline are wildly obsessed with AMC's Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul, starring the incomparable Bob Odenkirk, and the best part is that this addicting drama is only just beginning.

Michael Mando -- best known to Orphan Black fans as Vic, Sarah's drug-dealing ex -- is leaving the world of clones behind, and fully embracing his badass side as Nacho Varga, the right-hand-man to one of the most iconic villains in Breaking Bad history: Tuco Salamanca (Raymond Cruz).

"To understand what makes a man like that tick is very interesting," Mando told ETonline of stepping into his new on-screen alter ego. "Someone who is that intelligent, and patient, and dangerous is very interesting. I always find myself asking what is his objective and how does one become like that?"

Better Call Saul Season 1 Episode 3 Review – ‘Nacho’

19 February 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the third episode of Better Call Saul

It’s been a week since Better Call Saul’s two-episode season premiere, and we’ve all had time to digest what we’ve seen from the much anticipated Breaking Bad prequel. There’s been many similarities drawn between the series and its predecessor, as well as some vital differences, but with episode 3, entitled ‘Nacho’, we’ll find out even more about the story of Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk).

Warning! Spoilers Ahead – You have been warned!

For the third episode in a row, Better Caul Saul starts in a different time and place from what you’d call the ‘central’ narrative. This time the we jump backwards on the timeline (well, further backwards) to venture even further into Jimmy’s past. We find him in the orange overalls of a convicted man, meeting his brother Chuck (Michael McKean) for legal counsel. »

2014 in Review: The Year's Biggest Duds

18 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

2014 had a lot of great movie releases, as you'll see in our Slackerwood Top Ten later this week. Picking out favorites was easy. Limiting them to just ten choices was much tougher.

However, there's no question the following titles were big losers for the year, and I'll tell you why these are my picks.

10. Edge of Tomorrow

This Tom Cruise-starring adaptation of the Japanese manga All You Need is Kill was one of the critically best films of the year and thus its place at number 10. Unfortunately, due to uncertainty over marketing, the opening weekend box office take was just under $30 million for this $178 million blockbuster. As of September, it had barely grossed $100 million. It failed again with the home video release which had "Live Die Repeat" splashed across the cover causing confusion among people who had seen the marketing for the edgier title. (my review)

9. Interstellar

Better Call Saul episode 3 review: Nacho

18 February 2015 1:03 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Better Call Saul's third episode is a slow-burner compared to the last two, demonstrating the show's versatility...

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Nacho

“I’m no hero,” says Jimmy McGill. Well, no Jimmy. You aren’t. But bless you for trying.

Much of Better Call Saul’s third episode – more low-key than last week’s, which is no bad thing – concerns entanglement; specifically, the entanglement of Jimmy’s drive for self-preservation and his attempts to do the right thing by others. The fact that we already know that Jimmy is going to end up becoming Saul Goodman gives weight to his desire to do right (or as right as he’s capable of doing), as we know that somehow, probably through a combination of rotten luck and his own character flaws, it’s a desire that’s going to be more or less stamped out of him. It lends an »

Scarlett Johansson joining The Psychopath Test

17 February 2015 11:03 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Scarlett Johansson is to headline the movie take on Jon Ronson's The Psychopath Test...

Now we're sure that author Jon Ronson will correct us on this if we've got this wrong, but there's an incident that he describes at the start of his excellent book, The Psychopath Test. He talks about a threat being made to an unnamed website, as a consequence of an interview that was run with Ronson himself.

Er, we think that was us. Let's just say that we certainly had a few (friendly) phone calls about it. If you've read the book, you'll know which bit we're referring to. Again, it may be another website that we don't know of, but reading Ronson's words brough back some memories.

If you've not read the book, then you may be tempted to go for a film version of The Psychopath Test instead. Universal Pictures is backing the movie take on the book, »

Scarlett Johansson and Jay Roach Board Universal’s ‘The Psychopath Test’

17 February 2015 4:53 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal has Kristin Gore to pen the script of “The Psychopath Test,” with Scarlett Johansson attached to star and Jay Roach to direct.

Sources stress this pic is being developed as a starring vehicle for Johansson and no deal is done, but that she is very interested in doing it.

Brian Grazer is producing with Roach and his Everyman Pictures banner. Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey are also producing.

Erica Huggins and Jennifer Perini will be exec producers. Erik Baiers will oversee for the studio.

Based on the Jon Ronson book, the story follows a medical community that tries to diagnose and classify individuals who may or may not be psychopaths.

Gore, the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore, already has a connection to the Roach camp as the two are currently developing the comedy pilot “Women in Space” for HBO. She is repped by CAA.

'Better Call Saul' Writer Talks 'Breaking Bad' Flashback Rules

17 February 2015 1:26 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

AMC's Better Call Saul is already a surefire hit, scoring the highest-rated series premiere in cable history last week. That first episode titled "Uno" opens a few months, maybe even years, after the events seen in Breaking Bad. Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) is living his new life as Gene, a Cinnabon manager in Omaha, an occupation and location which was teased in one of the final Breaking Bad episodes. While the bulk of the show is set six years before Breaking Bad, last night's third episode, "Nacho" took fans back even further, opening with Bob Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill as a two-bit con man, asking his brother Chuck (Michael McKean) to get him out of a legal bind he's in. From the first three episodes, it's clear that the show will jump back and forth throughout the Jimmy/Saul/Gene timeline, and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, writer »
