Ben Stiller on ‘Zoolander 2,’ Brooklyn Hipsters and His Noah Baumbach Comedy

24 March 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Noah Baumbach comedy “While We’re Young” premiered at New York’s Paris Theatre on Monday night with stars Ben Stiller and Amanda Seyfried. The indie, which was picked up by A24 out of Toronto, follows a struggling documentary filmmaker (Stiller) who befriends two younger Brooklyn hipsters (Adam Driver and Seyfried). Naomi Watts, who didn’t attend the premiere, plays Stiller’s wife.

The film shot in New York last year, both in Upstate and throughout Brooklyn (including Williamsburg and Greenpoint). “I hadn’t spent a lot of time in Brooklyn,” Stiller said. “I’m from the Upper West Side. I remember going to Brooklyn as a kid, and the neighborhoods are always very exotic to me and so different.” Stiller said he didn’t absorb much about hipster culture during the shoot. “I feel like it’s all ridiculous the way people are categorizing it,” said Stiller. “People are doing their thing, »

The Good Wife, Ep. 6.15: “Open Source” sees the return of long-absent faces

16 March 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Good Wife, Season 6, Episode 15: “Open Source”

Written by Craig Turk

Directed by Rosemary Rodriguez

Airs Sundays at 9pm Et on CBS

Ah, the classic “ripped from the zeitgeist” case; it’s been a while since The Good Wife has taken on this old TV chestnut. (We should all still be in the “pretending the midseason finale never happened” phase right now.) This week, 3D-printed guns are the issue at hand, and that gives the series a handy excuse to bring back Gary Cole as Kurt McVeigh, crack forensic expert witness and seemingly barely-present husband of Diane Lockhart.

Actually, The Good Wife brings back a lot of series staples it hasn’t in a while – an honest-to-goodness legal case with an arc, a rival attorney with a distinct personal style (Mamie Gummer, always enjoyable as the faux-naif Nancy Crozier), the wacky judge with…a distinct personal style (Denis O’Hare’s Judge Abernathy, »

6 February 2015 2:55 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve got our first look at Meryl Streep in what will presumably be her next Oscar-nominated role as a hard-rocking front-woman in director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Diablo Cody’s upcoming comedy Ricki and the Flash

In a film loaded with music and live performance, Streep stars as Ricki, a guitar heroine who gave up everything for her dream of rock-and-roll stardom, but is now returning home to make things right with her family.  Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer, who plays her fictional daughter; Rick Springfield, who takes on the role of a Flash member in love with Ricki; and Kevin Kline, who portrays Ricki’s long-suffering ex-husband.

Ricki and the Flash will open in the UK on August 7th, with a cast that also includes Audra McDonald and Sebastian Stan.

5 February 2015 10:48 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Oscar nominee Meryl Streep will play a new character she's never been before: a rock star.

We have the first look at Streep in the film, and damn, Meryl. She looks like the badass we know she is, and even cooler with that guitar. The movie, which comes out Aug. 7, also stars her daughter Mamie Gummer and '80s rocker Rick Springfield. »

First Image From Ricki And The Flash Showcases Meryl Streep’s Rock Edge

4 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Is there anything Meryl Streep can’t do? In the first image from her next effort, Ricki And The Flash, the Oscar-winner debuts a previously-unseen side to her talents. Brandishing a pristine Fender and a flowing mane of hair, the still showcases a devil-may-care attitude to Streep that’s seldom seen on screen. It’s hardly a revealing image, but it serves as a tasty warm-up before the trailer lands.

In the lead role of Ricki, Streep plays an ageing rocker who abandoned her family years before to pursue her rock n’roll lifestyle. When her dreams of superstardom come crashing down after a long stint playing in dive bars and such, she calls up her ex-husband (Kevin Kline) with the hopes of reconnecting with her children. Leaving California behind, she ups sticks and returns to New York with her tail between her legs to reinstate herself as the family matriarch. »

First Picture of Meryl Streep as a Rocker in 'Ricki and the Flash'

4 February 2015 10:35 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

TriStar Pictures has chosen People magazine as the outlet to offer the first look at Meryl Streep as an aging rocker in Jonathan Demme's upcoming movie Ricki and the Flash. Pictured above, Streep plays a woman who abandoned her family when she was younger to find fame and fortune as a rock star in California. Decades later, she returns home to be a mother again after her daughter (played by Streep's real life daughter Mamie Gummer) goes through a divorce. Kevin Kline, rocker Rick Springfield, Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Audra McDonald ("Private Practice") round out the cast. Written by Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult), the pic is set to hit theaters on August 6 after previously being slotted for a late June release, obviously for awards reasons. »

‘Cake’ is a careless character study

26 January 2015 6:52 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cake

Written by Patrick Tobin

Directed by Daniel Barnz

USA, 2014

In Cake, it takes about fifteen minutes for director Daniel Barnz to establish the ground rules for this familiar portrait of grief and addiction, followed up by another ninety minutes or so of dramatic clumsiness and eye-rolling clichés. Whether it is drugs, sex, or booze, each brings a routine numbing quality to the table for Claire Bennett (Aniston), a seemingly darkly comedic and scathing woman who we first meet in a support group for chronic physical pain. The group is discussing the recent suicide of one of their members, while Claire draws appalling gasps due to her candid sarcasm on the matter. Sporting facial and body scars as well as weedy hair, Aniston’s return to drama screams “I’m ready for recognition!” but Cake does a horrible job of providing Aniston with much to work with.

Claire has driven most people away from her, »

The End of the Tour | 2015 Sundance Film Festival Review

25 January 2015 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Admiration Game: Ponsoldt’s Moving Homage to Artist and Artistry

Following the critical successes of 2012’s Smashed and 2013’s The Spectacular Now, director James Ponsoldt recreates a defining moment in time between acclaimed author David Foster Wallace and Rolling Stones’ journalist David Lipsky with The End of the Tour, based on the memoirs of the latter. Beginning with Lipsky learning of Wallace’s suicide in 2008, we backtrack twelve years to 1996, after the publication of the author’s famed novel, Infinite Jest, which inspired the journalist, a novelist himself, to vie for an interview with the enigmatic personality. Framed as an unforgettable memory, Ponsoldt captures what feels like a sincere elegy from Lipsky to Wallace, a road trip that lasted five days and ran a gamut of intellectual, emotional, and philosophical highs and lows pertaining to the meaning of fame, success, and what it means to be an artist. Carried magnificently by its two leads, »

The End of the Tour

25 January 2015 10:18 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

I am at my second Sundance Film Festival. These are my reviews.

Sundance Film Festival 2015 Reviews

The End of the Tour

Director: James Ponsoldt

Screenwriter: Donald Margulies

Principal Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Jason Segel, Anna Chlumsky, Joan Cusack, Mamie Gummer, Mickey Sumner

U.S.A., 2014, 105 min., color

Plot (courtesy of Sundance): This story of the five-day 1996 interview between Rolling Stone reporter David Lipsky and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace explores the tenuous yet intense relationship

that develops between journalist and subject. The two men bob and weave, sharing laughs, and also concealing and revealing their hidden vulnerabilities.

Review: I have a history with Infinite Jest. I bought the giant, thousand-page book because I wanted to be the guy who loved that book. Sure, there are thousands out there who have enjoyed the novel by David Foster Wallace, but I wasn’t friends with them. So, I read it. That’s not true, »

Film Review: ‘Cake’ Serves Emotionally Honest, Career-Growing Dramatic Role for Jennifer Aniston

24 January 2015 3:13 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – It’s been a while since I walked out of a screening so affected and feeling that I just experienced a truly honest, important film.

Sure, other ones have since, but back in 2007, “Once” especially made me feel that way long before the Oscars. I never would have expected it here and nor will you from this film you’ve probably heard little or nothing about, but a little engine that could called “Cake” has done that to me again. And you’d never guess who primarily made it possible: Jennifer Aniston in a visually unflattering, dramatic role.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

While “Cake” as a film is receiving mixed reception, Aniston is being recognized for the career-growing range it’s proving for her beyond the “Friends” comedic stigma she’s trying to grow beyond. Though she tried with the dramatic romance “Love Happens” in 2009, it bombed. “Horrible Bosses” in 2011 and “Horrible Bosses 2 »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The End of the Tour’

23 January 2015 10:29 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A tete-a-tete between two writers that was acclaimed in book form fails to translate effectively to the screen in “The End of the Tour.” Despite high-powered talent — playwright Donald Margulies making his screenplay debut, helmer James Ponsoldt fresh off the excellent “Spectacular Now,” an attention-getting cast — there’s too little drama and insight to this adaptation of David Lipsky’s account of his lengthy interview/encounter with novelist David Foster Wallace. Fans of the late Wallace will be curious, but A24 (which bought U.S. rights just before the film’s Sundance premiere) will need stronger notices than they’ll likely get to pull anyone else toward a plotless two-hander whose central dynamic isn’t as compelling as intended.

A slightly younger novelist who’d returned to journalism after winning good reviews but low sales with two early books, Lipsky was — like many — awed by the sheer ambition and frequent »

Sundance: A24 Takes David Foster Wallace Pic 'The End of the Tour'

23 January 2015 2:12 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

A24 has announced its sight-unseen acquisition of director James Ponsoldt's "The End of the Tour," world-premiering Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival. Deadline projects a deal to the tune of $2-$3 million. Based on David Lipsky's memoir "Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace," the film tells the story of Lipsky's five-day Rolling Stone interview with postmodern writer David Foster Wallace. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lipsky, and Jason Segel, in an unusual feat of casting, as the acclaimed "Infinite Jest" author (who would later end his own life in 2008). Penned by American playwright Donald Margulies, "End of the Tour" co-stars Anna Chlumsky, Joan Cusack, Mamie Gummer and Mickey Sumner. A24, which previously released Ponsoldt's 2013 Sundance darling "The Spectacular Now," is finalizing fall 2015 release plans. Chalk this up as the hottest buy of the fest next to Fox. »

The End of the Tour may have a distribution deal with A24

23 January 2015 9:04 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having only just starting in the Us, it seems that some of the line-up at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is too good to turn down.

In what would be the fourth sale already before the festival gets into full swing, distributors A24 are considering picking up the rights to The End of the Tour, the new drama from James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) starring Jason Segal (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Jesse Eisenberg (The Double).

Receiving its premiere tonight at the festival, the film is loose adaptation of David Lipsky’s Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself: A Road Trip with David Foster Wallace, in which the Rolling Stone reporter (played by Eisenberg) spent five days on the road with the late writer David Foster Wallace (Segel) conducting interviews for the book, which was released a year and a half after Wallace’s death.

Let Them Have It: Barnz Banks on Adept Aniston

Grief is a prickly emotion to convey within the confines of the indie American melodrama, a place that audiences have come to expect a certain amount of imaginable tragedy causing rippling aftershocks for its protagonist that force him or her to grow once more into a healed, even enlightened being. Along the way, a checklist of unlikely supporting cast mates imbue these reflections on coping with a sense of wishful thinking—we want these heroes and heroines of life’s harsh blows to have access to magical members of disenfranchised, socio-economically compromised denizens to guide them through a series of growing pains so that it’s possible to get right back to where they started from. If this sounds familiar, then you’ll be able to plug into the familiarity of Cake from director Daniel Barnz, which unfortunately feels more like »

Film Feature: Preview of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival

18 January 2015 8:06 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – This Thursday marks the beginning of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and yours truly will be in attendance to cover the fest for HollywoodChicago.com. Last year, the Park City, Utah event introduced the world to its 2014-defining sensations like “Whiplash” and “Boyhood”.

Those titles followed in the paths of indie landmarks such as “sex, lies and videotape,” “Clerks,” “Hoop Dreams,” “American Movie,” “Memento,” “Frozen River,” “Winter’s Bone,” and “Fruitvale Station,” among many others.

In pursuit of new favorite films for a new year, I’ve composed a relatively solid schedule so that I can devour as much diverse Sundance goodness as possible. Narratives, documentaries, white supremacists, nasty babies, Neil Hamburger, Chiwetel Ejiofor, stolen cop cars, and much, much more are all in play. But with hopes that everything I witness is the next “Boyhood”-like zeitgeist, I’ll be sure to report back here on what’s worth, »
