2015 Indie Spirit Award Nom Surprises & Snubs: Where is The Skeleton Twins, Miles Teller & The Better Angels?

14 hours ago | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Question. What do The Skeleton TwinsThe Better Angels and actor Miles Teller have in common? There’ll always be some head-scratcher surprises and snubs and the 2015 Indie Spirit award nominations are no different. It goes with the territory. As we tend to some wounds, we access those that were criminally overlooked in the key categories. Here is a glance at some of the shoulda, woulda and coulda.

Best Feature

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Boyhood

Love is Strange

Selma

Whiplash

Falling below the 21 million mark set by the Indie Spirit folks, it is indeed an odd year when a major studio release figures among the fives noms. Considering that Ava DuVernay is an indie talent, I didn’t think her film would be part of the equation. That said, it was a given that Boyhood and the more deserving Birdman and Whiplash would all face off. In »

Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy To Adapt Heist Thriller Storming Las Vegas For Antoine Fuqua

27 November 2014 10:01 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After overseeing one of the most revered films of the year in Nightcrawler, director-slash-screenwriter Dan Gilroy is set to return to scripting duties for his next project, Storming Las Vegas.

In an interview with The Wrap, Gilroy confirmed his involvement in the project, which will be directed by The Equalizer‘s Antoine Fuqua alongside regular producing partner Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Lifting the story from John Huddy’s eponymous, true-crime novel, Storming Las Vegas orbits around an adrenaline junkie known as Jose Vigoa who, upon arriving in Sin City, cooks up a ploy to hit the biggest casinos on the strip as he looks to get away with millions.

The novel’s by-line offers up a better take on the heist thriller, which sums up Vigoa’s adventure quite succinctly.

Video Interview: Mona Fastvold & Brady Corbet (The Sleepwalker)

26 November 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Among 2014′s class of best new voices in the film landscape (which includes Eliza Hittman (It Felt Like Love), Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night), Miroslav Slaboshpitsky (The Tribe) and Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler), we easily include writer-director Norwegian important Mona Fastvold. Described as a “moody and mysterious in a Lynchian sense and Bergmanesque in design,” the Sundance preemed The Sleepwalker left quite the impression on us. Prior to her debut, the Scnadi-born, American based filmmaker learned her craft via acting gigs and music video directing, and it is somewhere in that timeline she met up with creative partner in actor turned writer-director Brady Corbet. Having worked with the likes Haneke, von Trier and Campos, a film history savant Corbet has been stepping into the creative process since his Sundance preemd 2009 short, Protect You + Me.

Dan Gilroy Adapting Storming Las Vegas

26 November 2014 10:11 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After spending years as a writer, working on the likes of 2006’s The Fall and The Bourne Legacy, Dan Gilroy has launched himself as a director with the searing Nightcrawler. But for a new job, he’s switching back to just scriptwriting, signing on to adapt John Huddy’s book Storming Las Vegas, which Antoine Fuqua is set to direct.To give it its full, marquee-straining title, Storming Las Vegas: How a Cuban-Born, Soviet-Trained Commando Took Down The Strip To The Tune Of Five World Class Hotels, Three Armoured Cars, And Millions of Dollars, the book follows the rags-to-riches story of Jose Vigoa, who has been described as a modern-day Robin Hood.Born in Cuba, Vigoa was a Soviet army veteran who arrived in Vegas during the ‘90s, when the casinos were trying to push a cleaner image. He and his gang pulled off a violent, 16-month crime wave »

2015 Film Independent Spirit Award nominations announced: Birdman, Boyhood, Nightcrawler among leaders

25 November 2014 10:43 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Film Independent Spirit Awards are back with their list of the 2015 nominations. Leading the pack is the existential comedy Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) with a whopping six nominations, including one for actor Michael Keaton and one for director Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Closely following with a solid five nominations are Boyhood, Nightcrawler and Selma.

Boyhood (read our review here) is Richard Linklater’s ultimate character study, which filmed over the course of a decade, creates a time-lapse examination like no other before it. The film follows six year old Texas boy Mason, played by Ellar Coltrane, through his childhood years as he transitions into the life of a young adult ready to take on college. Boyhood received nominations for best film, director, editor, supporting actor and actress. It is bold experiment in film and should prove a serious awards contender.

Nightcrawler (read our review here) marks Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut. »

Birdman earned six nods and Boyhood, Nightcrawler and Selma five apiece as Rosario Dawson and Diego Luna unveiled the 2014 Spirit Award nominations in Los Angeles on November 25.Scroll down for full list of nominations

Birdman, Boyhood and Selma are in contention for best feature alongside Love Is Strange and Whiplash, which earned four nominations.

Richard Linklater and Alejandro G Iñárritu join Whiplash’s Damien Chazelle, Selma’s Ava DuVernay and David Zellner for Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter on the directors list.

Much-fancied Michael Keaton is nominated for his lead performance in Birdman and will compete against Nightcrawler’s Jake Gyllenhaal and Selma’s David Oyelowo, a late arrival to the awards banquet who has earned high praise in recent weeks for his role as Martin Luther King Jr.

The best actress category is populated by Julianne Moore for Still Alice — arguably the awards season front-runner in this race — as well as Marion Cotillard for The Immigrant, which »

Fox Searchlight’s 18 million bet proved to be a good one as Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) leads Boyhood, Nightcrawler and Selma by a busted up nose in the number of most nominations with six, while Linklater, Gilroy and DuVernay’s latest secured five noms a piece. Looking at the final five, we have a Best Feature category with a breakdown that resembles two parts Hollywood and three parts 4-5 million dollar indie range in Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) and Selma being joined by Boyhood, Love is Strange, Whiplash. Here are the complete noms.

“Birdman”, “Boyhood”, “Nightcrawler”, and “Selma” lead the 30th Spirit Awards nominations

25 November 2014 10:36 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Just a few moments ago, the 2015 Independent Spirit Awards announced their nominations for their 30th annual ceremony, once again providing a mix of future Academy Award nominees and smaller contenders getting their moment in the sun. In terms of the former, Birdman (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) lead the nominations with a half dozen citations, followed by Boyhood and Selma with five each. Nightcrawler also scored a total of five, with Whiplash not far behind at four. They mixed with more fringe contenders like Love is Strange (also at four) and the aforementioned smaller players that won’t even sniff Oscar love, such as A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (three nominations). Overall, it was an eclectic mix, to say the least. I won’t speculate about potential winners just yet, but I will do a quick bit of analysis. Obviously, Birdman, Boyhood, and Selma solidified their causes as top tier Academy Award players, »
