Steve Carell, Rob Marshall, and Chris Rock all gave memorable projects in 2014 and it's fitting that the Palm Springs International Film Festival is giving them various honors. Carell, who gave a stunning performance in "Foxcatcher" will receive the Creative Impact in Acting Award from Variety while Rob Marshall, fresh from directing "Into the Woods," will be honored with the Creative Impact in Directing Award.
Of course, the Palm Springs International Film Festival is happening in my neck of the woods, and I'll be there live at the Gala on Saturday, January 3rd!
Here's the complete press release:
Los Angeles, CA . (December 18th, 2014) Variety will present actor Steve Carell with the Creative Impact in Acting Award, presented by Mercedes-Benz,which celebrates his scope of work, ranging from »
The Women Film Critics Circle announced its winners for the year last week and we're just now getting to them. And even though "The Homesman" led the way with nominations, it was "Still Alice" that was the big winner, taking every prize for which it was nominated. However, there are some oddities. Films that weren't even nominated for categories like Best and Worst Female Images in Movies ended up winning those prizes. The stated reasoning behind an award for Seth Rogen and James Franco is sort of bizarre and tough to follow. Suddenly Oprah Winfrey in "Selma" qualifies as an action star. One previous winner was announced during the nominations stage and then when winners were revealed, suddenly found herself tied for the honor. Etc. Anyway, follow along with the winners below if you can. Nominations are here. And the rest of the season's offerings are at The Circuit. Best »

Netflix’s expansions into original programming have taken us into the upper echelons of Washington politics, the cell blocks of a women’s federal prison and the dangerous wilds of 13th century Asia, but next year will see the streaming service bring us somewhere both exciting and familiar for comic-book aficionados: Hell’s Kitchen, New York.
Daredevil, which stars Matthew Murdock, will follow the early days of the blind vigilante as he sets out to clean up the city’s mean streets. Today brings our first look at Murdock in costume as the titular hero, and it looks like, at least at first, the character will go for a stealthy all-black get-up, which is in keeping with the series’ reportedly gritty and grounded tone. Daredevil’s iconic red threads will evidently be introduced at a later date.
Today also brings word that Daredevil has officially wrapped production. Executive producer and »

Following the new images from Daredevil we saw this weekend, executive producer and showrunner Steven DeKnight has tweeted that the upcoming series has wrapped production. As we previously reported, DeKnight says that while Daredevil will be “grittier and edgier” than anything Marvel has done thus far, they’re still “not looking to push it to extreme violence or gratuitous nudity,” even thought Netflix gives its TV series the freedom to do so. Daredevil will also be the second limited series for Marvel following this January’s Agent Carter. However, unlike that series, Daredevil will remain on hiatus until the big crossover series, The Defenders, which won’t arrive until after Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist premiere, and none of those have even entered production yet, although Jessica Jones and Luke Cage are in the casting stage. Hit the jump for DeKnight’s tweet and more on Daredevil TV series. »

One of the world’s all-conquering comic brands has a raft of entertainment headed for the small screen and it’s about time they started unwrapping the goods. So with Christmas imminent, now is a good time to yank the bow on a payload of shots from two anticipated offerings – Daredevil starring Charlie Cox, and Agent Carter with Hayley Atwell. The Dd package sees Cox’s heroic alter ego Matt Murdock as he walks amongst an unsuspecting public…
As well as another shot of him in the black costume, disappointingly reminiscent of the “sock on his head” approach of 1989’s The Trial Of The Incredible Hulk…
The good news sartorially is that the definitive red outfit will be donned. Co-starring Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk (aka The Kingpin), the show is released on Netflix via ABC next year. »

Ahead of its arrival on Netflix this coming May, showrunner Steven S. DeKnight has taken to Twitter to announce that production has wrapped on the season finale of Daredevil, Marvel’s upcoming 13-part series which marks the first step on the road to The Defenders. Now, how about a nice Christmas present in the form of a trailer?
Marvel’s Daredevil is a live action series that follows the journey of attorney Matt Murdock, who in a tragic accident was blinded as a boy but imbued with extraordinary senses. Murdock sets up practice in his old neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen, New York where he now fights against injustice as a respected lawyer by day and masked vigilante at night.

1. Maybe a little too navel-gazing on Chris Rock's part but we'll let it pass since most comedians turned actors play it like that from Woody Allen back in the day to every comic with a sitcom deal from the past thirty years.
2. True story: This movie has a super cast. It would have made a smarter SAG nomination than The Theory of Everything. (But then what wouldn't? Sorry Theory. I like ya but that nom is a big "D'oh!"). It's great to see a film about a guy actually give actresses fun things to do and Sherri Shepherd, Gabrielle Union, Rosario Dawson, and Leslie Jones all have good moments.

We speak about Wolfgang Staudte's Murderers Are Among Us, the blurring of parameters, Bruce Greenwood's Vince at the charity ball, the upcoming Remember with Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau, Bruno Ganz and Dean Norris and Die Walküre.
Ryan Reynolds and Mireille Enos give fervent performances of grief as Matthew and Tina, whose daughter Cass, played as an ice-skating, pie-loving, energetic young girl by Peyton Kennedy, goes missing. For eight years, aided by a Niagara team of detectives, headed by Rosario Dawson's Nicole Dunlop and Scott Speedman's Jeffrey Cornwall, they search for the missing child. The viewer knows her whereabouts in the clutches of Kevin Durand's Mika, a man in their midst, who comes up with new bristling storytelling functions »

Marvel just unveiled two new photos from its upcoming "Daredevil" TV series, which stars Charlie Cox and is set to be available on Netflix in 2015. Check out the photos below. The series follows the journey of Matt Murdock (Cox), who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. "There aren't going to be people flying through the sky; there are no magic hammers," said Marvel's Jeph Loeb. "We've always approached this as a crime drama first, superhero show second." "Daredevil" co-stars Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson, Vincent D'Onofrio as Kingpin, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and Rosario Dawson in an unspecified role. Photos: (click to enlarge) »
Aside from two photos from the New York Comic Con, we’ve seen little in the way of promotional material from Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series Daredevil, but with a trailer surely on the horizon ahead of its May release, the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly has given us a new look at British actor Charlie Cox as the Man Without Fear…
Daredevil is set to arrive on Netflix in May 2015 and sees Charlie Cox (Stardust) leading the cast as Matt Murdoch/Daredevil alongside Deborah Ann Woll (True Blood) as Karen Page, Elden Henson (The Butterfly Effect) as Foggy Nelson, Vincent D’Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) as the Kingpin, Scott Glenn (The Silence of the Lambs) as Stick, Peter Shinkoda (Falling Skies) as Hachiro, Rosario Dawson (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) as Claire Temple / Night Nurse, Toby Moore (John Wick) as Wesley, Ayelet Zurer (Man of Steel) as Vanessa, »

Pulsing with the rhythm of his greatest stand-up, Chris Rock’s Top Five takes things to the next level, reveling in the high and the low, and blending a star-studded comedic romp with an irresistible romance. Top Five digs under the surface of show business, politics, rap, and the exigencies of being black and famous today—holding it all up to the light in the way only Chris Rock can. Mingling echoes of Woody Allen and Dick Gregory with the energy of Kanye West and Jay Z, Top Five is an original and radically new kind of American movie.

Assembling a year-end top-10 list has always been a personal, even self-indulgent, ritual, a way of disguising a whimsical ranking of favorites as a carefully curated declaration of personal taste. At the risk of making things even more solipsistic than usual, let me begin by noting that the fraught relationship between artists and critics provided 2014 with one of its most compelling movie themes, with critics themselves — food critics, art critics, theater critics and, yes, film critics — figuring among the year’s most favored characters. And by favored, of course, I mean mocked, loathed and misunderstood at every turn.
In one of the most talked-about scenes in Alejandro G. Inarritu’s virtuoso backstage farce “Birdman,” a washed-up movie star named Riggan Thomson (Michael Keaton) comes face to face with a notoriously nasty New York Times theater critic, Tabitha Dickinson (Lindsay Duncan), who calmly informs him that she’s going to eviscerate his new Broadway play, »

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released a new clip from DC Entertainment's animated film Justice League: Throne of Atlantis. The story follows Justice League members Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, as they team up with a new superhero named Aquaman. Together they set out on a journey to prevent a war between the inhabitants of land and sea.
The clip shows us the initial discovery by Cyborg and Colonel Steve Trevor of "the event that could lead to a war between Atlantis and the surface dwellers, [which] sends the Justice League in search of Arthur Curry." Here’s the synopsis of the movie:
In Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Cyborg discovers an imminent threat in the depths of the oceans so powerful that it rallies together the newly formed Justice League. Meanwhile, wandering thousands of feet above the ocean floor is drifter Arthur Curry, a man with strange powers who »

If it were up to us, every season would be TV season. No more 10, 16, or 22-episode batches at a time - just 52 blissful weeks of new content from our favorite shows. But, alas, that's not how it works. We can pretend that the wait just makes us appreciate the shows more when they air, but in this world of instant gratification it really just makes us impatient. Here are 15 shows we're particularly excited/impatient/desperate to see return or premiere in 2015.
The first season of "The Walking Dead" only had six episodes, so we should be grateful to get eight episodes of Season 5 from October-November 2014 and eight more again when Twd returns from February-March. Plus, there's a "companion series" coming at some point in 2015 as well. And we are grateful - when we're not whining about the wait. How will Maggie Greene, Daryl Dixon and company react »

Scott Speedman enjoys portraying flawed men who are pushed to the limit, make mistakes, and then have to recover, and his character in Atom Egoyan’s new psychological thriller, The Captive, definitely fits the bill. Speedman plays Detective Jeffrey Cornwall, an edgy cop who makes a living hooking predators and searching for missing children online. He’s immediately skeptical of Matthew Lane’s (Ryan Reynolds) story about his missing daughter (Alexia Fast), and his suspicions that the father is somehow complicit in the abduction lead him to push way beyond the ethical boundaries of his work. Mireille Enos, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Durand and Bruce Greenwood also co-star. At the film’s recent press day, Speedman spoke about his creative collaboration with Egoyan with whom he worked previously on Adoration, how Egoyan wrote the role specifically with him in mind, why he was drawn to the complicated character and enjoyed the challenge of an enigmatic story, »

2001's Jose and the Pussycats, which is based on characters from Archie Comics, opened with $4.5M and ended its worldwide run with a measly $14.8M. Just because it didn't do well at the box office doesn't mean it's bad. Sometimes it takes time for a film to find its audience. Is that the case with Jose and the Pussycats? One of the stars from the film, Rosario Dawson ("Sin City: A Dame To Kill For"), she thinks so: That movie is so amazing, and it really didn’t hit its audience then. People didn’t really get it. But if you watch it now, it’s so on the money — from media manipulation to endorsements and boy bands. We shot it in Vancouver, and [co-stars] Tara Reid and Rachael Leigh Cook were the biggest stars on the planet at the moment. Tara was getting married to Carson Daly, and it was »
