Top 20: Films to see in 2017

8 hours ago | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

We are a few months into 2017 and already we had a number of standout movies like Get Out, Logan, and The Lego Batman Movie. Hopefully that is just the start of what is to come. Considering that, myself and Kevin – the hosts of podcast Cinema Geeks – combine forces to put a list together of 20 movies to watch in 2017.

Let us know what you think of the list in the comments below. Did they leave any off? Are the rankings off base? Let your voice be heard!

20) The Lost City of Z

What Can Go Right: A film with this type of setup sure would have to be bungled in order for it not to work. It describes the life of British explorer Percy Fawcett who made several attempts to find an ancient lost city in the Amazon and disappeared in 1925 along with his son. It should be in good hands »

Okja Images Peel Back The Layers Of Bong Joon-Ho’s Monster Movie

See Full Gallery Here

Of all the many, many original features lining Netflix’s slate for 2017 – think War Machine or David Ayer’s fantastical Bright – there’s a vocal pocket of subscribers keeping a close eye on Okja, the all-star monster movie in the works from South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho.

Best known for helming Memories of Murder, The Host – another monster movie cut from a similar cloth as Okja – and 2013 cult hit Snowpiercer, Joon-ho has assembled quite the ensemble cast to bring his latest feature to life, and today we have three new images designed to shed light on the human side of Netflix’s upcoming creature feature. Given that Okja largely centers on the unusual bond between the titular animal and a young girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), it’s only fitting that the young up-and-comer is ushered into the spotlight here. Throughout the course of Joon-ho’s monster flick, »

Oscar Isaac and Kristen Stewart: Who’s due for their first Oscar nomination?

24 March 2017 6:59 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

This is something interesting. Every year during the early parts of the season, I like to post about who is overdue to get an Academy Award nomination or win. Last year was no different. There’s always a ton of people deserving of attention but not receiving of it. What’s unique this time around is that no one received a nomination from the list I came up with, despite it including some of Hollywood’s best and brightest talent, both young and old. That’s unusual, and a real pity. So, instead of cursing at the dark in, I’m choosing to light a candle and give them another moment of attention today. Below you will again see pretty much the same list I previously published, just this time with a new order. It’s a shame that they’re all still here, but it’s part of what »

Newswire: Russo brothers teaming up with the directors of Swiss Army Man for sci-fi project

23 March 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

According to Deadline, Joe and Anthony Russo (a.k.a. The Russos) are going to be working with Swiss Army Man directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (a.k.a. The Daniels) on their next movie. We don’t know any specifics about the project, but it’s going to be a sci-fi story that will somehow be “as original as Swiss Army Man.” Considering that movie was about Paul Dano getting stranded on an island with Daniel Radcliffe’s farting boner corpse, that’s an extremely tall order. Even spit-balling an idea that would be “as original” as that movie seems impossible, but maybe it’ll be a musical about a dinosaur who gets resurrected in the future and then becomes the captain of a spaceship. It could be called Captain Chompy’s Fabulous Space Cruise, and it’ll push the R-rating as far as it can go in »

The Russo Brothers Line Up New Sci-Fi Movie With The Daniels

23 March 2017 4:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a plot twist worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster, Marvel filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo have signed on to join forces with the Daniels – the creative duo behind 2016’s Swiss Army Man. Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan will deliver a science fiction movie, which represents the first major film deal for the Russo Brothers and their fledgling production company.

The film currently remains untitled, but will be written, directed, and co-produced by the Daniels. As such, it is expected to feature their very specific, now legendary brand of comedy and drama. Swiss Army Man was their first feature length theatrical film, and quickly stirred up interest on the film festival circuit, with its unusual tale of a man’s bond with a flatulent corpse. The story of loneliness, obsession and connection was striking enough to attract the talents of Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe and Mary Elizabeth Winstead to the cast »

Valerie Faris & Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes” Gets Awards-Friendly Release

22 March 2017 9:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Battle of the Sexes

Emma Stone just won her first Oscar in February, and the “La La Land” actress may be in running for the 2018 Academy Awards as well. Fox Searchlight has announced an awards-friendly release date for Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes,” Deadline reports. The film will hit theaters September 22. Stone stars in the tennis comedy alongside her “Crazy Stupid Love” co-star Steve Carell.

The film chronicles the “legendary 1973 tennis match between ex-champ/hustler Bobby Riggs and world №1 Billie Jean King,” the source summarizes. The 29-year-old King handily defeated the 55-year-old Riggs in one of the most-watched sports events of all time.

Penned by Simon Beaufoy (“Slumdog Millionaire”), “Battle of the Sexes” co-stars Elisabeth Shue (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”), Alan Cumming (“The Good Wife”), Andrea Riseborough (“Bloodline”), Sarah Silverman (“Masters of Sex”), and Bill Pullman (“The Equalizer”).

Carell appeared in Faris and Dayton’s feature debut, 2006’s “Little Miss Sunshine.” The comedy, which follows a dysfunctional family as they embark on a road trip to a beauty pageant, received four Oscar nominations including Best Picture, and took home two trophies. The collaborators’ critically acclaimed follow-up, 2012’s “Ruby Sparks,” was written by Zoe Kazan, who also starred in the unconventional romantic comedy about a writer (Paul Dano) who writes a love interest into existence (Kazan).

There have been previous films about the King-Riggs match, including Jane Anderson’s 2001 TV movie “When Billie Beat Bobby” starring Holly Hunter, and James Erskine and Zara Hayes’ 2013 documentary “The Battle of the Sexes.” The epic rivalry between King and Riggs will be depicted by Elizabeth Banks (“Pitch Perfect” franchise) and Paul Giamatti (“Billions”) in an upcoming HBO film, and serves as the inspiration behind “Balls,” an upcoming opera from composer Laura Karpman and librettist Gail Collins.

Valerie Faris & Jonathan Dayton’s “Battle of the Sexes” Gets Awards-Friendly Release was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

The actress is already part of the Oscar buzz surrounding “Mudbound,” which premiered at Sundance to strong reviews and walked out of Park City with a Netflix deal.

Scott Stuber to head Netflix original film initiative

14 March 2017 12:36 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

War Machine, First They Killed My Father, Bright among roster of titles scheduled to launch this year.

One of the biggest open secrets in Hollywood was confirmed on Tuesday as it emerged Scott Stuber, the former vice-chairman of worldwide production at Universal, will head Netflix’s original film initiative.

The appointment is a coup for deep-pocketed streaming service as it attempts to draw big names and big productions into the fold beyond those that are already lined up for release this year (see below).

Stuber had been courted for the top job at Paramount and will now lead the development, production and acquisition of Netflix’s growing slate of original films for a global subscriber base the company said currently numbered more than 93m.

The new hire most recently founded and ran Bluegrass Films, the Universal-based production company behind such hits as Ted, and Central Intelligence. Bluegrass will transition to partner Dylan Clark and continue its TV »

'Raw' Review: Cannibal Coming-of-Age Movie Is a Modern Horror Masterpiece

13 March 2017 6:03 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's the cannibal movie that caused people to faint at a film festival – this is what people talk about when they talk about Raw, the extraordinary body-horror parable from French director Julia Ducournau. The incident, which happened at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, might cause folks to view this as some sort of cinematic dare, a splatter shocker designed to test the limits of the scary-movie marine corps. Consider this a disclaimer, and a reclamation: The story of a young woman (Garance Marillier) who develops a taste for certain off-the-menu delicacies is indeed intense. »

Newswire: Netflix’s Okja will get theatrical releases in both the U.S. and South Korea

8 March 2017 2:02 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Snowpiercer director Bong Joon-Ho’s next film—a monster story called Okja—is coming to Netflix on June 28, but in a rare move, the streaming service will actually be giving people a chance to see it in theaters. Specific details are slim, but Variety says that the movie will be getting day-and-date theatrical releases in both the U.S. and South Korea, with Next Entertainment World distributing the film overseas. That’s pretty much all we know, though, as the story doesn’t say when it’ll have this theatrical release, just that it will all be very “limited.” That makes it sound like this is being done primarily for Korean audiences, with the U.S. theatrical release some kind of bonus, but it’s hard to say until we know more.

Okja stars Tilda Swinton, Ahn Seo-hyun, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins, and Paul Dano.
