Are You Here Hitting September 30th

10 September 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Matthew Weiner of Mad Men fame is coming you way with his feature film writing/directing debut, Are You Here. The bizarre-sounding story is brought to you with a cast you might expect isn’t difficult for someone with Mad Men under his belt to get into his film.

Ben (Zach Galifianakis) inherits a sizable fortune when his father dies, despite the fact that Ben lives off-the-grid and had been estranged from his father. Steve Dalls (Owen Wilson), a womanizer and local television personality, is a friend of Ben’s, and decides to join up with Ben to fight the legal battle brought by Ben’s sister (Amy Poehler), but there’s a lot more going on than that. Check the trailer below for more of an idea of the ins and outs of friendship that are explored in this one.

The comedy certainly has the talent, including an impressive supporting cast, »

The Woman Greta Gerwig Loved Doesn’t Exist In First Clip From The Humbling

29 August 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Barry Levinson’s new drama, The Humbling, has a lot of elements going for it. First of all, it has an opening night launch at the Toronto International Film Festival on Thursday, after its premiere in Venice this week, which is hopefully a good sign. Second, it has a controversial 2009 novel from Philip Roth as its source material. Third, it has a terrific ensemble, including Al Pacino, Greta Gerwig, Dianne Wiest, Mandy Patinkin, Kyra Sedgwick and Charles Grodin. Also, classic comedy writer Buck Henry (The Graduate) worked on the screenplay. Now, the first clip from the film has landed online and it is as raw and wrenching as we have come to expect from Roth’s work.

This early clip from The Humbling is bruising and bitter, with Gerwig hard to like as a woman who abandoned her relationship and did not return to her lover’s hospital bed in the aftermath of his surgery. »

Film Review: ‘Are You Here’ Feels Like Mashup of Two Different Films

25 August 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – You would think that a film written and directed by Matthew Weiner – the creator of “Mad Men” – would be worthwhile company, especially when the cast includes Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler. It is disappointing to note that not only was this cliché-ridden mess unpalatable, but it also switched gears two-thirds of the way through to evoke a different mood, and that schizophrenia didn’t help the overall product.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

The story of two dysfunctional friends who go to the country because one of them has inherited the farm sounds ho-hum just in that description, and everything that happens seems wedged in by presenting a series of assigned stereotypes instead of interesting characters. Owen Wilson, now pushing 50, is again portraying his familiar puppy dog womanizer character, which is now as creaky as his standard tousled hair cut. Zach Galifianakis again plays the puffy and confused stoner manboy, but »

Are You Here – The Review

21 August 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Confession time. I really wanted to love this movie. I mean, I really, really, really did. Sadly, not everything we want in life comes true. On the other hand, I’m an optimist and try to remain open to compromise. So, while I did not hate the film by any means, I came away only kind of liking Are You Here.

Matthew Weiner makes his feature film debut as a writer and director with Are You Here. For those of you in the know, that alone is quite an exciting idea. For those of you who watch too much reality TV and not enough of the good stuff, Matthew Weiner is known for writing substantially on the AMC series Mad Men and the HBO series The Sopranos. Now that I have your attention, I’m afraid things about about to get real, as in real disappointing.

Are You Here had a lot of promise. »

'Mad Men,' you're in good company: 9 cruelest cast snubs at the Emmys'

17 July 2014 5:39 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Over the years, much has been made of "Mad Men's" shocking inability to win an acting Emmy. It may have be named Best Drama Series four times in a row (2008-2011), but to date, it has gone 0-for-31 in acting categories. And if it loses its three bids this year, that shutout will grow to 34. But it's not the only show to be otherwise recognized by Emmy only to see its actors snubbed again and again. -Break- Emmy experts predict drama races: 'Breaking Bad,' Matthew McConaughey ... Consider "The Office." NBC's popular sitcom ran nine seasons and won Best Comedy Series in 2006, but it never claimed an acting prize. Indeed, only three of its cast members were even nominated: Steve Carell (Comedy Actor, 2006-2011), Rainn Wilson (Comedy Supporting Actor, 2007-2009), and Jenna Fischer (Comedy Supporting Actress, 2007). You'd think the series would have fared better with the TV academy's acting branch, »

Palm Springs ShortFest Is Long on Talent

17 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Megabudget tentpoles may dominate the multiplexes and attract big media attention, but short films are still a crucial part of the cinematic ecosystem. That’s why for 20 years filmmakers from around the world have gathered in the poolside attire-required heat of the California desert at the Palm Springs Intl. ShortFest.

Why pay attention to shorts? “It’s the first time you see or hear emerging voices,” says Kathleen McInnis, festival director of ShortFest. “They speak with a strength and a passion and a clarity that’s not compromised as they go into the process of making films at a higher level.” For those in the industry, “You’re going to tap them for what they’re going to do next.”

That’s what happened for such directors as Christopher Nolan, who had an early short in Palm Springs, or Andrea Arnold, whose “Wasp” won the Palm Springs ShortFest prize and »

Owen Wilson Comforts Zach Galifianakis In Trailer For Are You Here

6 June 2014 9:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Dysfunctional families have been extremely fertile ground for Hollywood for a long time, as has been made clear by the abundance of dramas like August: Osage Country and Nebraska, and comedies like Little Miss Sunshine and the upcoming This Is Where I Leave You. Now, audiences can look forward to another film that explores broken family dynamics – Are You Here, which stars Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis.

A new trailer for the flick, which focuses on a weatherman (Wilson) who accompanies his childhood friend (Galifianakis) to the reading of his late father’s will, has hit the web, and you can check it out below.

Normally, the involvement of Wilson and Galifianakis alone would be enough to get me excited, but the supporting cast for Are You Here is also superb. Amy Poehler (NBC’s Parks & Recreation) plays Terry, sister of Galifianakis’ flighty man-child, who understandably isn’t too happy »

Are You Here Trailer Arrives

5 June 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It hasn’t been a great time for respected TV creators turning their hand to films. Sopranos man David Chase found little success with his first effort, Not Fade Away and now his former mafia-writing lieutenant-turned-Mad Men wrangler Matthew Weiner saw his film directing debut, Are You Here, greeted with cold reactions at the Toronto Film Festival, when it bowed as You Are Here last year. He’s worked on it a little further and the first trailer is up via Yahoo.The story follows Ben Baker (Zach Galifianakis), who inherits his estranged father’s fortune and teams with womanizing local weatherman Steve Dallas (Owen Wilson) to battle the legal challenge brought by Ben’s sister Terri (Amy Poehler). Given that the cast also includes Jenna Fischer, Rosemarie DeWitt, Joel Gretsch and a wealth of other funny folk, hopes were high for the film.But the idea of Galifianakis »
