Six Reasons Jennifer Aniston Could Win the Oscar for ‘Cake’

19 December 2014 2:06 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What a difference a week makes. Once considered a long shot for an Oscar nom, Jennifer Aniston has now received the holy trifecta — nominations for best actress from SAG, Golden Globe and the Critics’ Choice Awards. An Oscar nomination seems more and more likely.

It’s all the more impressive that Aniston has received such attention for a small independent film. In “Cake,” written by first-time screenwriter Patrick Tobin and directed by Daniel Barnz, she plays Claire Simmons, a woman who suffers from chronic pain and becomes obsessed with learning more about a member of her support group who committed suicide. Aniston has never been given such a meaty role on the bigscreen before, and she rewards the filmmakers’ gamble with a beautiful, heartfelt performance.

Aniston has made a lot of progress in a short time in the race and will likely continue. There are so many factors that go »

Jonah Hill and James Franco go dramatic in Sundance trailer ‘True Story’

19 December 2014 12:46 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A selection in this year’s Sundance Film Festival, rookie filmmaker Rupert Goold’s film True Story tells the true story of journalist Mike Finkel and his interview subject, Christian Longo. In 2002, Finkel was fired from The New York Times for fabricating a story. Shortly after, he learned of a serial killer, Longo, who posed as Finkel when killing his wife and children. Finkel then took to interviewing Longo as an opportunity for a second chance. Jonah Hill stars as Finkel interviewing James Franco’s Longo, and Goold’s film looks to be a tense journalistic thriller that doesn’t look to be funny at all. Felicity Jones also stars. Watch the trailer below:

True Story Trailer Arrives

19 December 2014 8:03 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With his constant barrage of side projects in film and on paper, it’s a wonder that James Franco has time to appear in other people’s movies. But here he is in a based-on-truth story, which sees him acting opposite pal Jonah Hill in a tale that will see neither of them using their comedy chops. With the film headed to the Sundance Film Festival, the first trailer for True Story has arrived.Adapted by Dave Kajganich from Michael Finkel’s memoir, the plot finds Hill playing Finkel, a New York Times writer who, in 2002, was fired by the paper after his bosses announced he had falsified part of an investigative report. With his girlfriend (Felicity Jones) upset and no work prospects, Finkel suddenly discovered a possible path to redemption.But this is no ordinary tale of someone working their way back into everyone’s good graces: it turns »

'True Story' Trailer Starring James Franco and Jonah Hill

18 December 2014 12:36 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first look photo that debuted earlier this week, Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the trailer for True Story ahead of its debut at the Sundance Film Festival next month. This Is the End stars Jonah Hill and James Franco reunite for a gripping drama that is, naturally, based on an incredible true story that puts a whole new spin on "identity theft."

Jonah Hill stars as New York Times journalist Rupert Goold, whose career at the newspaper came to an end after he falsified accounts in a story about impoverished teenagers in West Africa. It's worth noting that Finkel's admission didn't quite make huge headlines, since one week later, the New York Times was embroiled in the Jayson Blair plagiarism scandal. James Franco stars as Christian Longo, an FBI Most Wanted List murderer who for years lived outside the U.S. under Finkel's name. After he is imprisoned for killing his wife, »

Jonah Hill & James Franco in Trailer for Sundance Selection 'True Story'

18 December 2014 10:47 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I want to tell you my side of this." Fox Searchlight has premiered a trailer for Rupert Goold's film True Story, starring Jonah Hill and James Franco as adversaries of sorts. Based on the real life memoirs of NY Times reporter Michael Finkel, played by Jonah Hill, the film follows the interactions between Finkel and accused killer Christian Longo, played by James Franco. For years, Longo lived using Finkel's identity, and even submitted writing work under his name. In addition to Hill and Franco, who look quite serious in this, the cast includes Felicity Jones, Ethan Suplee and Gretchen Mol. This actually looks really, really good. I love the intensity and some of the dialogue is on fire, this just shot to the top of my list for Sundance. Here's the first official trailer for Rupert Goold's True Story, from Yahoo (found via The Film Stage): Synopsis »

First True Story Trailer: Jonah Hill and James Franco Go Dramatic in Dark Thriller

18 December 2014 10:05 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox Searchlight has released the first True Story trailer for director Rupert Goold's upcoming drama.  Based on real events, the film stars Jonah Hill as disgraced New York Times journalist Michael Finkel, who strikes up a head-spinning relationship with accused murderer Christian Longo, played by James Franco.  After watching them play off each other in such hilarious fashion onscreen in This Is the End, I'll admit there's a bit of whiplash in seeing Hill and Franco play opposite each other in something as dark and serious as this.  That said, both actors have separately proven themselves to be formidable dramatic talents and the story here is incredibly compelling, so I'm really looking forward to catching this one next month at Sundance. Hit the jump to watch the True Story trailer.  The film also stars Felicity JonesTrue Story will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and opens in theaters April 10, 2015. Via Yahoo! »

Watch: James Franco And Jonah Hill Tell A 'True Story' In First Trailer For Real Life Drama

18 December 2014 9:53 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Right now, whether truth or fiction, there's no story unfolding in Hollywood more captivating than that surrounding "The Interview," but it seems James Franco likes a good real life yarn. Next month, he'll hit the Sundance Film Festival with two movies based on true stories: the Gus Van Sant-produced "I Am Michael" and the Brad Pitt-produced "True Story." The latter's first trailer show's a different side to the actor. Co-starring Jonah Hill and Felicity Jones, "True Story" is based on the memoir by former New York Times journalist Michael Finkel, regarding his crossing paths with one Christian Longo, a wanted man on the FBI Top Ten list who had murdered his family. Things get even more bizarre when it's revealed that Longo was living under the name "Michael Finkel." While we're used to seeing both performing on the more extreme end of the comedic spectrum, it'll be interesting to watch Franco and Hill. »
