Watch: Gina Prince-Bythewood on Gotham Nominee 'Beyond the Lights' (Exclusive Video)

24 October 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

There are many talented women directors working--if not often enough--in Hollywood today. One of them is writer-director Gina Prince-Bythewood, who broke out of UCLA winning prizes, writing and directing shorts and television (HBO's "Disappearing Acts"), and delivering a well-reviewed Sundance hit for New Line Cinema, "Love & Basketball" (2000), starring Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan, which scored Prince-Bythewood an Indie Spirit award and a Humanitas prize and grossed $27.4 million domestic. After producing 2003's "Biker Boyz," Prince-Bythewood followed up with Fox Searchlight's 2008 literary adaptation "The Secret Life of Bees," starring Dakota Fanning and Queen Latifah, which played better for audiences ($37.7 million domestic) than critics.  It's been another long stretch until "Beyond the Lights" (November 14), which played to raves in Toronto and Urbanworld, and just earned a Gotham Best »

Non-Twilight Film Roles That Will Restore Your Faith in Kristen Stewart

16 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

With Camp X-Ray hitting theaters this weekend, Kristen Stewart is finally exploring life beyond Twilight. The indie drama, which tells the story of one soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, is a far cry from Bella and the world of vampires Stewart became so famous for over the past five years. During that time, Stewart became pigeonholed and often hated on for her participation in The Twilight Saga. And for those who only know those films are doing themselves a disservice. Her latest film — the first of three high profile films she has coming out this year — has earned the actress accolades on the festival circuit and reminded many of the promise she showed in roles, such as Sarah Altman in Panic Room or Emily in Adventureland. It’s those films that fans (and the haters) should watch if they want to restore their faith in Stewart.

Film Review: ‘Effie Gray’

13 October 2014 8:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s presumably more heated drama behind the screen than there is upon it in “Effie Gray,” a literate, lovingly mounted and exceedingly well-behaved historical biopic that has sidled into British theaters after two years of less polite legal conflicts. Emma Thompson’s first adult-oriented film screenplay since her Oscar-winning work on “Sense and Sensibility” finds a fascinating human subject in the title character — the socially and sexually suppressed wife of leading Victorian art critic John Ruskin — but this admirable, watercolor-delicate tale of individual feminist emancipation never quite blooms into living color, hampered by spotty casting and Richard Laxton’s overly deliberate direction. Lush production values and name players — notably a conscientious Dakota Fanning in the lead — guarantee international exposure, but commercial prospects are as muted as the film itself.

The pic’s closing credits rather pointedly refer to the “original screenplay by Emma Thompson,” a still-piqued rejoinder to a »

Effie Gray

9 October 2014 3:06 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

The emotionally barren wedlock of celebrated 19th century man of letters John Ruskin (Greg Wise) and his teenage wife Effie Gray (Dakota Fanning) is grimly explored in Oscar-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson's portrait of a marriage that never was. The newly-wed Ruskin - backed by his spitefully ambitious parents - proves emotionally stunted, repulsed by the physicality of the marriage bed. Effie - ten years younger - dutifully accepts her fate but finds herself drawn to Pre-Raphaelite painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge) in a Victorian era where the stigma of divorce could spell social exile. »

‘Gone Girl’ Vies To Keep Its Distance From ‘Annabelle’ At Int’l B.O. — Monday Update

6 October 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

3Rd Update, Monday, 3:25Pm Pt: The majors — Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal, Warner Bros. — have updated their weekend estimates which are now reflected throughout the story. Some dips from what was originally reported yesterday among Sony and Paramount’s titles, but nothing too earth-shattering. While Gone Girl barely notched No. 1 with roughly $400K more than Annabelle stateside, $37.5M to $37.1M respectively; their spread at the overseas B.O. is wider in their weekend takes with the David Fincher film grabbing $24.5M and The Conjuring spinoff taking $20.7M for the weekend.  However, Annabelle has a leg up on Gone Girl since it opened in Russia last weekend, hence the horror film’s total cume is $23.6M, $887K short of Gone Girl’s foreign take.  Next weekend, the spooky doll film and the missing chick pic will pull each other’s hair in France and Spain where they bow against each other. »

Watch: Trailer For Celebrated Nyff Cold-War Era Hockey Documentary ‘Red Army’

3 October 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Playing Cannes, Tiff and, now, the New York Film Festival this weekend, the celebrated Russian hockey documentary “Red Army” has received rave reviews since it debuted on the Croissette earlier this year. Directed by producer/filmmaker Gabe Polsky (one half of the sibling duo that directed the underrated indie “The Motel Life” with Emile Hirsch and Dakota Fanning), “Red Army” is about the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team. East vs. West narratives played out fiercely during the Cold War, and even spilled over into the world of international sports, where the Russians were severely competitive and extremely proficient in hockey. Polsky’s doc looks at the Red Army hockey team, how it was created and how it also became a tool of Soviet propaganda. It sounds like a fascinating documentary, and buzz around the movie has been glowing. Here’s »

‘Night Moves’ Review

1 October 2014 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard, Alia Shawkat, Logan Miller, Kai Lennox, Katherine Waterston, James Le Gros, Traber Burns | Written by Kelly Reichardt, Jonathan Raymond | Directed by Kelly Reichardt

Director Kelly Reichardt has made a career out of making unassuming films that are mediations on the human conditions. Based on the subject matter of her latest film Night Moves  one might think she is making a departure from her established style. This thriller follows a group of eco-terrorists as they attempt blowup a hydroelectric dam. As one would except with a director like Reichardt this thriller has camouflaged tension that only shows itself at the right opportunities. Night Moves  is a lingering piece of entertainment that makes you the ultimate observer into a relatively untold world.

In the film Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard play three ideological environmentalists who believe they have found a way to take a stand for Mother Nature. »
