The Best Movie Posters of the 2000s

8 June 2017 6:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The early aughts may have brought a string of questionable fashion statements to the table (remember trucker hats?), but it was chock-full of memorable cinema across a variety of genres.

Both Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan rejuvenated the action genre, giving us endlessly quotable, award-winning films like “Kill Bill” and “The Dark Knight” that are still considered game-changers. Films like “Cloverfield” and “District 9” took us by surprise, while “Children of Men” influenced many of the bleak dystopian Ya films we’ve seen over the past few years.

Some of these films also served as introductions to some of today’s biggest stars. Although he had already done “Freaks and Geeks,” Judd Apatow jumped onto everyone’s radar as the new king of comedy with “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” “Donnie Darko” became a cult-classic, but no one knew »

T.J. Miller on Leaving ‘Silicon Valley’ and Why He Wants Erlich Bachman to ‘Fade Into the Ether’

3 June 2017 11:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Erlich, we hardly knew ye. The recent announcement that T.J. Miller’s profanely eloquent scene-stealer shan’t return to “Silicon Valley” next season acts as a sort of spoiler for the next few episodes, though the manner in which he departs the world of Pied Piper and Hooli remains to be seen. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Miller sheds some light on the reasoning behind his decision — and how it might play out onscreen.

“I, unlike, Nietzsche, am a bigger fan of death than the eternal recurrence,” said the actor, whose burgeoning film career would appear to have influenced his decision. He recently appeared in “Deadpool” and “Office Christmas Party,” with roles in “The Emoji Movie” and “Ready Player One” forthcoming. »

The show begins its eight-episode run on September 10, and the pilot premiered this Friday night at IFC Center’s inaugural Split Screens TV Festival, with producer and star Maggie Gyllenhaal, director Michelle MacLaren, and Pelecanos in attendance.

‘The Deuce’: 10 Things We Learned From Split Screens Festival Screening

2 June 2017 9:47 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Deuce,” the HBO drama from “The Wire” and “Treme” vets George Pelecanos and David Simon, transports viewers back to Times Square in all its grungy, seedy, early 1970s glory.

The show toplined by Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco revolves around a colorful clutch of hookers, pimps, bartenders, cops and sundry hustlers trying to make a living on the trash-ridden streets of New York. “Deuce” ultimately explores the growth of the modern pornography industry (although the first episode does not delve into the X-rated film biz). The premiere screening of “Deuce’s” pilot was the kickoff event for the Split Screens Festival, which runs through June 8 at IFC Center.

Here are 10 things we learned from the screening and Q&A with Gyllenhaal and director Michelle MacLaren, moderated by festival programming director Matt Zoller Seitz. »

James Franco stars as twin brothers in this new drama from The Wire creator David Simon.

The Wire creator David Simon is writing another show for HBO, alongside author George Pelecanos and starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

The Deuce is a porn drama set from the early 1970s to the mid-1980s in Times Square, following the legalisation and rise of the porn industry. Franco stars as both down-on-his-luck bartender Vincent Martino and the irresponsible Frankie Martino, twin brothers operating out of Times Square.

Michelle MacLaren — she of Breaking Bad, Westworld, The X-Files, and The Leftovers fame — directed The Deuce pilot, and the look we get in this sneak peek bodes well for the visual style of the show. Franco also helmed two episodes in the eight-episode first season.
