Lbj review [Tiff ’16]

16 September 2016 5:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Lbj review: Rob Reiner gets political with this biopic which features a stellar performance from Wood Harrelson in the title role.

Lbj review, Paul Heath, Tiff ’16.

Rob Reiner steps back behind the camera for his highest-profile project in years in this political true-story of Lyndon Baines Johnson, the 36th President Of The United States.

Johnson served as president from 1963 to 1969, but this story picks up just prior to Johnson’s swearing-in as president after JFK was assassinated on that fateful day in Texas in 1963. Reiner’s film back-tracks almost immediately to his days before he served as JFK’s number two, when he was serving as Senate Majority Leader. Assuming the role of Lbj is an almost unrecognisable Woody Harrelson (in heavy latex prosthetics), effortlessly pulling off the former leader of the free world’s mannerisms, strong personality and conveying his ruthless ambition, no-shit-taking and unique traits from the off. »

Tiff 2016: 9 Hot Acquisition Titles at Festival

7 September 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Few film festivals in the world double as an acquisitions marketplace quite like the Toronto International Film Festival, which will screen more than 300 movies between September 8 and September 18. Most of these films have yet to land a U.S. distributor, and only a select group of titles will secure a distribution deal before the end of the fest.

Which movies are likely to be swarmed by buyers at Tiff 2016? Here are nine hot titles from the lineup that could be prime targets for acquisition execs.

The Bad Batch

Writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s follow-up to her hit debut “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” is billed as a “dystopian love story in a Texas wasteland.” The film follows a young girl named Samantha (Suki Waterhouse) who’s been banished from civilized society and ends up escaping from a community of cannibals. Produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, the film stars Keanu Reeves, »

‘All the Way’: How Jay Roach’s Approach to Collaboration Led to Something ‘Joyous’

23 June 2016 12:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jay Roach for President.

HBO’s gripping docudrama “All the Way” chronicled the ruthlessness of American politics, as captured within a tumultuous eight months during the term of President Lyndon B. Johnson. But behind the scenes, under Roach’s administration, the production couldn’t have been more idyllic.

In the movie, Johnson fights hard to bring more equality to America. On set, Roach, who directed the film, was effortless in creating a more perfect union.

“Jay is like this with everybody,” Bradley Whitford, who played Hubert Humphrey, told IndieWire. “He doesn’t treat the craft services guy any differently than he treats me. One of my pet peeves about Hollywood is that it’s full of lefty, ‘fancy yourself a humanist’ liberals like me and then you get on a movie set and it’s like a 15th century serfdom. People are treating other people like shit because they’re »

‘All the Way’: Bryan Cranston reveals the Jackie Kennedy letter that made Lbj click for him

21 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Accidental president. Vietnam. Civil Rights Act. Bully. This is Lyndon B. Johnson’s legacy, or at least how he’s often remembered. New HBO film All the Way seeks to illuminate many sides of the man who stepped into the highest office in the land after John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Bryan Cranston plays Lbj in the film, premiering on HBO tonight, following his Tony-winning turn as the president in All the Way on Broadway. After he’d already done extensive research and study of the play’s text (itself thoroughly researched by playwright Robert Schenkkan), Cranston went on a second visit to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum in Austin, TX, and that’s where the person of Lbj really clicked for the actor. “The character is always outside of you until you hopefully allow it to seep in. Then it becomes a part of you,” Cranston told HitFix. »

TV Review: ‘All the Way’

18 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sometimes biographical films take on the attributes of their subjects, and that’s largely the path followed by “All the Way,” HBO’s adaptation of Robert Schenkkan’s play about Lyndon B. Johnson.

As depicted by star Bryan Cranston who won a Tony award for the role two years ago, Lbj was a human hurricane, whirling through the political scene at an intimidating speed, often talking, cajoling, and threatening the entire time. The problem with hurricanes, of course, is that they tend to flatten everything in their paths. While watching this talky and unsubtle small-screen production, it’s hard not to end up feeling as though you’re being browbeaten into submission or bludgeoned by a particularly thick history book.

There are a few scenes that crackle with tension, but they usually revolve around moments in which the president grows quiet, and the only clues to the character’s fearsome »

Johnson alongside Anthony Mackie as Martin Luther King Jr. and Melissa Leo as First Lady Bird Johnson. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Kennedy. Staking his presidency on what would be an historic, unprecedented Civil Rights Act, Johnson finds himself caught between the moral imperative of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the expectations of the southern Democratic Party leaders who brought Johnson to power.

Bryan Cranston Shines In The First Trailer For All The Way

21 March 2016 4:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Bryan Cranston has been gracing our screens for more than three decades, but it was the pilot episode of Breaking Bad, back in 2008, that made us realize what a formidable performer he truly is. It hardly seemed possible that the man who played Hal in 151 episodes of Malcolm In The Middle could also embody the ultimate anti-hero, playing the meth-cooking chemistry teacher, Walter White. But, embody him he did, and now, every Cranston performance is highly anticipated. All The Way is no exception to that rule – bringing, as it does, the actor’s Tony-winning stage performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson to HBO.

Bryan Cranston (Trumbo, Breaking Bad) reprises his Tony-winning role in All The Way, a riveting behind-the-scenes look at President Lyndon B. Johnson’s tumultuous first year in office after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Staking his presidency on what would be an historic, unprecedented Civil Rights Act, »

Watch: Bryan Cranston Channels Lyndon B. Johnson in ‘All the Way’ Trailer

19 March 2016 4:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Walter who? Bryan Cranston is a long way from “Breaking Bad” in the trailer for HBO Films’ “All the Way,” in which he plays President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Based on the play by Robert Schenkkan, for which Cranston won a Tony after a six-month Broadway stint in 2014, “All the Way” follows Johnson’s ascension to the presidency following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Cranston said he didn’t hesitate when the offer to adapt “All the Way” came in from HBO because the lesson of the play, about the moral and political courage it took Johnson to push forward on the Civil Rights Act in 1964, was so vital.

“We could now reach millions more and tell this important story by way of HBO,” Cranston said at TCA in January.

Anthony Mackie co-stars as Martin Luther King Jr. Also starring are Melissa Leo as Lady Bird Johnson and Bradley Whitford as Hubert Humphrey. »
