Crimson Peak; The Program; The Search; Bill; Hotel Transylvania 2; Lila & Eve – review

5 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The blood flows in the lavish Crimson Peak, a Lance Armstrong biopic sticks in first gear and Michel Hazanavicius is all talk, sadly…

When Amicus Productions released The House That Dripped Blood in 1971, it hardly capitalised on the lurid promise of the title. It must have stuck with Guillermo del Toro, however: he has beautifully literalised the image in Crimson Peak (Universal, 15), a sweeping, swollen haunted house horror in which bricks and mortar become flesh and bone, veritably streaming with the ketchup-coloured residue of dead residents. Allerdale Hall, the crumbling Cumbrian mansion owned by dashing but damaged inventor Thomas (Tom Hiddleston) and his emotionally corseted sister Lucille (Jessica Chastain), is like Daphne du Maurier’s Manderley turned inside out; the ghosted gothic love story it houses, too, plays like a disarranged Rebecca, its most intense surges of feeling gushing from unexpected trapdoors.

To unpick the Hall’s unhappy history, of course, »

What the Critics’ Choice Awards Can Tell Us About Oscar

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Managing Editor

The Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their Critics’ Choice Awards last evening in Los Angeles and is the first awards ceremony since the Academy released their official nominations last Thursday.

Those looking to the Critics’ Choice Awards in hopes of fleshing out their Oscar predictions will notice a few differences between last week’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s awards in the major categories. Most notably is the fact that Spotlight won best picture after being entirely shut out by the HFPA at the Globes.

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), and Brie Larson (Room) all repeated their Globes success with acting wins, but Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) took home the best supporting actress award in lieu of Kate Winslet’s (Steve Jobs) win the week before.

Does Writing the Screenplay to Your Film Help Best Director Chances?

12 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

With a number of big Golden Globe wins last night, including best director and best dramatic picture for The Revenant, director Alejandro G. Inarritu finds himself once more in the thick of the Oscar hunt. The Mexican-born filmmaker won big last year with three Oscars for his avant garde drama Birdman, which scored him the best original screenplay, best director, and best picture awards.

This year, with the western revenge thriller The Revenant, Inarritu has once more directed a film that he wrote himself, this time adapting the screenplay from the novel by Michael Punke with co-writer Mark L. Smith.

Inarritu is not the only writer/director with films in the race this year, however, as a number of other contenders boast a director who also penned the film’s script. The original screenplay hopefuls include Spotlight (directed and written by Tom McCarthy with co-writer »
