Eighteen years after Bulworth and fifteen after Town & Country (his last time directing and acting for a feature film respectively), Warren Beatty returns to the big screen with a fictionalized biography of Howard Hughes forty years in the making. It’s a passion project and vanity project: two endeavors worthy of an auspicious return to the spotlight even if the latter isn’t always the best decision for retaining a renowned legacy. Rules Don’t Apply won’t taint peoples’ image of him, but it’s not going to mark any sort of resurgence in popularity either. If anything it simply reminds us of his onscreen charisma and endearing humor, his handle of Hughes’ descent into eccentricity and insanity proving memorably entertaining. While he’s not the lead, he is the glue.
It’s an interesting move to put the main draw in the background, but that’s exactly what »

Way back in the spring, “It Follows” director David Robert Mitchell started putting together his next movie, “Under The Silver Lake,” and landed a big star for the lead role with Andrew Garfield. The next few months went quiet, but things are gearing up quickly and the director has put together a pretty terrific ensemble for the upcoming picture.
Riley Keough (“The Girlfriend Experience,” “American Honey”), Topher Grace (“Interstellar,” “Truth”), Zosia Mamet (“Girls”), Jimmi Simpson (“Westworld,” “House Of Cards”) are the bigger names joining the crew, with veteran character actor Patrick Fischler, Luke Baines, Callie Hernandez, Riki Lindome, and Don McManus rounding out the cast of the movie that’s now in production.

As Kirsten Dunst gears up for her directorial debut next year with an adaptation of Sylvia Plath’s landmark 1963 novel The Bell Jar, she’s been expanding her cast.

The new "Twin Peaks" isn't slated to debut on Showtime until 2017, but a flurry of speculation about it happened last week with a tweet from Go For Locations indicating that filming had wrapped on the "first two seasons" of the series.
The episode count for the David Lynch-directed series was always in question, but that tweet suggested we'd be getting even more episodes than originally planned. Said tweet has since been deleted, so we'll have to wait to see how that pans out.
in the meantime in more official news, Showtime, Lynch and Mark Frost has released the official cast list for the new series with a whopping 217 names across the various episodes - a list that includes some real surprise big name inclusions such as Monica Bellucci, Michael Cera, Naomi Watts, Tim Roth, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eddie Vedder, Ashley Judd, Ernie Hudson, Jim Belushi, Richard Chamberlain, Laura Dern, »

That number was extended to an unspecified amount of episodes back in May of last year, and now after a mammoth 140-day shoot, it seems we may be getting two new seasons of the cult show, or possibly even more.
The following tweet was posted by Go For Locations – an account which has been reliable with its info on the production – before being removed; check it out via WelcomeToTwinPeaks…

If there’s such a thing as poker-faced exuberance, you can feel it in every loving, teasing frame of Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Hail, Caesar!,” an inside-showbiz lark that regards the 1950s studio system with the utmost skepticism even as it becomes an expression of movie love at its purest. Starring Josh Brolin as a hard-working industry “fixer” tasked with keeping big-budget productions on track and wayward stars in line, this gorgeously crafted romp through the backlots and Malibu enclaves of Hollywood’s Golden Age tosses off plenty of eccentric comedy and musical razzle-dazzle before taking on richer, more ruminative dimensions, ultimately landing on the funny-sad question of whether life is but a dream factory. Although it boasts enough marquee names and splashy, crowdpleasing angles to deliver good returns for Universal, this is as strange and singular an offering as anything the Coens have ever done, and as such its more thoughtful, »

Four-time Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel Coen and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood's Golden Age. Hail, Caesar! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix. Today, we have the all new trailer along with a new poster and several photographs.
