The clip opens with Joaquin Phoenix in his role of Freddie Quell in Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2012 drama “The Master.” Jessica Chastain makes an appearance in John Hillcoat’s crime drama “Lawless,” which also stars Shia LeBouf, Tom Hardy and Jason Clarke.

Courtesy of backing from Netflix, it was thought Andrew Dominik‘s next film would be his long-in-the-works Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde. However, with the struggle to find a leading actress, the film looks to be put on hold in favor of a new drama, once again in a Netflix deal (which, every new day, seems to be a recurring phrase around these parts).
The project is War Party, a Ridley Scott-produced adventure film that will find Tom Hardy starring as a real-life Navy Seal. Although not a great deal more is known about the next film by The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford director, he co-write the script with Harrison Query, who has written the yet-to-be-produced Honor for Sale that John Hillcoat is attached to direct.
As for Dominik, this presumably action-oriented project based on a true story — which Netflix beat Amazon, Universal, and Lionsgate »

From The Road to Lawless to star-studded crime saga Triple 9, John Hillcoat is a director that specializes in the art of crafting dark, engrossing stories around deeply human characters, even if the latter two movies aren’t talked about in the same breath as his adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s apocalyptic masterclass – and rightfully so.
Since orchestrating a melange of crooked criminals and equally crooked cops in Triple 9, there’s been nary a mention of Hillcoat’s next project, but it seems The Tracking Board (via /Film) has today brought an end to that admittedly brief radio silence. Sources close to Ttb now claim the writer-director has climbed on board to direct an episode of Black Mirror season 4, Charlie Brooker and Netflix’s jet-black anthology series that examines far-future technology through a very particular, and often crushingly bleak, lens. The episode, rumored to be titled “Crocodile,” will purportedly focus on two female protagonists, »

When we were assembling our list of favorite moments of 2016, it was decided late in the process to exclude television and focus solely on movies.
