Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Film Review: 'Stonehearst Asylum'

24 April 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★☆☆☆ "Believe nothing you hear and one half of what you see", is a line lifted from Edgar Alan Poe's The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether that is uttered by a plummy-toned Brendan Gleeson at the opening of Brad Anderson's entertaining Grand Guignol genre-piece Stonehearst Asylum (2014) (previously Eliza Graves). Based on Poe's book, the story opens at the beginning of the last century, where a naive young doctor, Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess), embarks on his first position at a remote asylum in the wilderness of North Yorkshire. Upon his arrival, he is greeted by the institutes head shrink, the archly named Silas Lamb (Ben Kinsley).

Carey Mulligan: 'The film industry is obviously massively sexist'

21 April 2015 1:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Carey Mulligan has said that the movie industry is "obviously massively sexist".

The actress noted to Time Out London that it has taken a century for the story of the suffragettes to be made into a significant feature film.

"In terms of the amount of interesting roles there are for women it's obviously massively sexist," Mulligan said of the film industry.

"There's a lack of material for women. A lack of great stories for women."

She added of the delay in a film like Suffragette being made: "The mere fact that it's taken 100 years for this story to be told is hugely revealing.

"This is the story of equal rights in Britain and it took years of struggle and women being tortured, abused and persecuted, and it's never been put on screen.

"It's such a reflection of our film industry that that story hasn't been told yet."

First Look: Alexander Skarsgard Puts Up His Middle Finger In John Michael McDonagh's 'War On Everyone'

20 April 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are few writer/directors that can balance dark drama with incisive wit, but John Michael McDonagh is one of them. With just two films — "The Guard" and "Calvary," both of which could probably use a bit more attention — he's established himself as a filmmaker who can handle a variety of tones with deft ease, while creating distinct, memorable characters. And his latest is his biggest effort to date. Filming has started on the perfectly titled "War On Everyone," and the first cheeky image is here. Michael Peña, Alexander Skarsgård, Theo James, Tessa Thompson, Caleb Landry Jones, Paul Reiser, Stephanie Sigman, and David Wilmot star in the action-comedy about two crooked cops who blackmail everyone they can, until one criminal proves to be more difficult to handle than they anticipated. So yes, we're very, very stoked on this one. Read More: Review: John Michael McDonagh's 'Calvary' Starring Brendan Gleeson, »

Watch Meryl Streep Fight For The Vote In Surefire Oscar Contender Suffragette

15 April 2015 10:21 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

On April 20th, the citizens of the United Kingdom will have reached the deadline for registering to exercise their right to vote. It's almost hard to believe that it's nearly been a century since that right was extended to women, after a long fought campaign by the Suffragettes to secure such a basic human right. That story will make its way to the big screen in Sarah Gavron's Suffragette, which we got a sneak peek at thanks to the video shown below.    The Independent revealed the UK trailer yesterday, which showcases an all star cast that boasts Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, and Brendan Gleeson, as well as Academy Awards darling Streep herself. While it's previously been reported that Streep's role is a supporting capacity at best, that's not stopped the studios from touting it in this very short ad.

Suffragette Teaser Trailer Marches Online

15 April 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The election cycle here in Blighty is in full swing, so it seems the right time to look back at a much more vital and impassioned part of political history, the Suffragette movement. A teaser trailer for Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette is now online. Boasting quite the cast – Meryl Streep, Carey Mulligan, Helen Bonham Carter, Romola Garai, Anne-Marie Duff, Brendan Gleeson and Ben Whishaw among them – Suffragette follows the struggles of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst (Streep) and the campaigners around her, who lead an early feminist movement to get equality in voting at a time when women were considered ill-mannered to vote. While their cause was just, it was also not an easy thing to try to turn the giant iceberg that was British politics at the time. The personal cost was great, but the results speak for themselves. It’s just a quick look at this point, but with that cast, »

Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep Fight The Good Fight In First Teaser For Historical Drama Suffragette

15 April 2015 8:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Eager to strike while the hot-button topic steals the headlines in the UK ahead of the general election on May 9, Focus Features has debuted the first teaser for political drama Suffragette, which sees Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep taking a stand for women’s rights during the early 1900s.

As a matter of fact, the studio has even gone so far as to incorporate the marketing for the real-life drama with the #VotingMatters campaign, intertwining the old with the new. Not only that, with close to 9 million women not taking part in the vote in 2010, there’s greater impetus to attract more to the polling stations on this occasion, and Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) will be hoping to offer up a hard-hitting perspective on the matter through her cinematic analogy.

Following Mulligan’s feminist Maud, a hard working mother, the film will orbit around her realization that she must take »

Suffragette Teaser Trailer Has Mulligan and Streep Fighting for Women’s Voting Rights

15 April 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Film 4 has released the first Suffragette trailer online. Written by Abi Morgan (Shame) and directed by Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane), the film stars Carey Mulligan as a working-class women’s rights activist in the early days of the feminist movement. As you can see from this trailer, this isn’t just marching with signs. This is throwing rocks and getting hardcore when it comes to fighting for voting rights. It’s an encouraging trailer because it looks like it will get to the nitty-gritty of the suffragist movement rather than just ladies marching around with signs. Check out the Suffragette trailer below. The film opens October 23rd, and also stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Meryl Streep.

Here's the official synopsis: Suffragette is a thrilling drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they »
