First Look: Cobie Smulders & Guy Pearce In Andrew Bujalski's 'Results'

18 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s always exciting when an indie director steps up, gets out of their mumbly ghetto and starts to really take off with actors that aren’t just their friends. From the world of mumblecore, Drake Doremus had terrific results with Guy Pearce, Felicity Jones, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Ryan in “Breathe In” and “Like Crazy,” and Joe Swanberg’s “Drinking Buddies” really cooked beyond what he’d made before thanks to the awesome chemistry of Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson and Anna Kendrick. Next up in the field is director Andrew Bujalski, known for lo-fi indies such as “Mutual Appreciation” and “Computer Chess.” His latest is a big change for the filmmaker, an “unconventional” romantic comedy with a star-filled cast. Called “Results,” the movie stars Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), Kevin Corrigan, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Michael Hall, Brooklyn Decker and “House Of Cards” star Constance Zimmer. »

Paramount Sets ‘Top Five’ for Dec. 5 Release; Chris Rock Pushes Rosario Dawson Nom

18 September 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount has given Chris Rock’s comedy “Top Five” a release date of Dec. 5 in the U.S. followed by a wide release on Dec. 12.

The studio acquired worldwide distribution of “Top Five” a week ago following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival to strong reviews.

At the Variety Studio in Toronto, Rock said he hoped the film would get a release this year so Rosario Dawson can get an actress nomination. Dawson beamed and laughed, and thanked her costar-director.

The “Top Five” dates follow closely on Sony Classics’ announcement that it will open the Julianne Moore vehicle “Still Alice” this year as well.

Though the best-actor derby is already overcrowded, the five Oscar slots for best actress have fewer contenders, with strong possiblities so far including Reese Witherspoon, “Wild”; Shailene Woodley, “The Fault in Our Stars”; Hillary Swank, “The Homesman”; and Felicity Jones, “The Theory of Everything.”

The Oscar race takes shape: Sure things, contenders, and wild cards

18 September 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

It’s September, so why wouldn’t we start predicting an Oscar race that won’t finish for another five months?

To be fair, Venice, Telluride, and the Toronto film festivals have all concluded. Many films have screened. Many films have connected with audiences, and a rough draft of the Oscar race is beginning to come into focus. Sure, no Academy member will even begin popping in those screener DVDs for another couple of months, but it’s still worth discussing what has buzz and what is likely to still be on voters’ minds once the weather finally begins to cool off. »

Felicity Jones Talks The Theory Of Everything, Staying True to Real Life, Working with Jonah Hill on True Story, and More at Tiff 2014

17 September 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of my favorite films at this year's Toronto International Film Festival was director James Marsh’s (Man on WireThe Theory of Everything.  The fantastic film is an adaptation of the Stephen Hawking memoir Travelling to Infinity, written by his wife Jane Hawking.  Starring Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) as HawkingThe Theory of Everything chronicles his budding relationship with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wide (Felicity Jones), heartbreaking motor neuron disease diagnosis at the age of 21, and groundbreaking scientific work in the field of time.  Led by phenomenal performances by Redmayne and Jones, The Theory of Everything will definitely be a player in awards season and I strongly recommend seeing it for yourself when it opens November 7th.  For more on the film, watch the trailer. Shortly after the Tiff premiere I landed an exclusive video interview with Felicity Jones.  She talked her process in preparing for a role, how »

2014 Proved to be the Year of the Actor at Toronto

17 September 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Unlike last year, Toronto didn’t seem to herald an Oscar best-pic frontrunner. But it was the Year of the Actor, as much of the awards talk focused on performers. Some saw career revitalizations, though Al Pacino’s two roles didn’t seem to draw as much awards buzz as some other thesps.

Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones

Both are likely nominees, and “The Theory of Everything” wowed folks in many different categories.

Bill Murray

His performance in “St. Vincent” lives up to the buzz. And the reclusive actor had fun promoting it.

Laura Dern

With two films at Toronto (“Wild,” “99 Homes”), she could win mom of the year — and best supporting actress.

Channing Tatum

By promoting “Foxcatcher,” he reminded folks that Steve Carell is not the film’s only lead-actor contender.

Julianne Moore and Jennifer Aniston

Still Alice” and “Cake” sought distribs, so buyers would need to mount a fast awards campaign. »

Oscars News: Think again if you believe the Best Actress race is 'thin' this year

16 September 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Glenn Whipp says to "think again" if you believe the Oscar race for Best Actress is "thin" this year. He partially blames "the allure of the new, with some pundits flailing their arms each time an unseen movie debuts." A few days ago, Julianne Moore ("Stil Alice") jumped to the tops of prediction lists strictly because she came out of nowhere and was the most recent person to be screened. Along with Moore, Reese Witherspoon ("Wild") and Felicity Jones ("The Theory of Everything") are strong possible choices. He also adds in the lesser-viewed Gugu Mbatha-Raw ("Belle"), Marion Cotillard ("The Immigrant"), Lindsay Duncan ("Le Week-End"), and Jenny Slate ("Obvious Child") to consider. L.A.

Open Thread. What did I miss?

15 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Leftovers just gets better and better. how phenomenal is Ann Dowd any way?It occurred to me yesterday while making an exceedingly poor attempt to fully recuperate from Tiff madness (I should have been resting my strained eyeballs but instead I was emptying the DVR) that I had missed two whole weeks of regular news. I joked about this on twitter but I'm 150% sure that I missed something I'd actually like to have known about!

It's easy to miss things, even if you're fully immersed in the industry. (An example: I was talking to Felicity Jones at that Theory of Everything party about her scenes with Charlie Cox, who is so sweetly crush-worthy in the movie, and she somehow hadn't heard that he was the new Daredevil for Netflix!)

What movie things, besides Tiff and the standard Oscar buzz, have been on your mind these past couple of weeks? »

The Theory of Everything review - Toronto Film Festival 2014

15 September 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: James Marsh; Screenwriters: Anthony McCarten, Jane Hawking; Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones; Running time: 123 mins; Certificate: PG-13

In The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne tackles the gargantuan task of playing one of the most - if not the most - famous living scientists in the world: Stephen Hawking. Most of us know Hawking as he is today - the wheelchair-bound genius who communicates via a special speech-generating computer. Here, director James Marsh and writer Anthony McCarten, working from the memoir of Jane Hawking, take us back to the beginning, to the physicist's time as a young man pursuing his PhD at Cambridge.

This young version of Hawking that we meet is fun-loving, charming, a bit of a lazy student, but every bit the brilliant scientist that we know he will soon flourish into. The film takes time not only to explore the early genesis of some of Hawking's most exciting ideas and theories, »

Fall Festival Verdict: Who’s In, Who’s Out As The 2014 Oscar Race Gets Its First Real Shot Of Adrenaline

12 September 2014 6:53 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

With the last gasp of the Toronto International Film Festival now upon us (it officially closes Sunday,) the Oscar race has become further defined, particularly with input from Venice and Telluride. Until that fall fest trifecta, only IFC’s summer phenomenon Boyhood and perhaps Sony Pictures Classics’ Foxcatcher  could realistically be thought to be in serious contention for Best Picture consideration. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel has been mentioned in some quarters, but that movie came out in March, and when was the last time a March release made the list of Best Picture nominees?

Toronto: The Top 10 Films to Generate Buzz

12 September 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald 

Managing Editor 

The Toronto International Film Festival ends Sunday and hundreds of films have been screened since the 11-day festival began. Throughout the years, Toronto has featured a number of Oscar hopefuls that have gone on to Oscar success. Just last year, best picture 12 Years a Slave (2013) was shown at Toronto (along with a number of other nominees). Hoping for the same success, some Tiff films have been met with instant Oscar chatter this year. Here are the top 10 films to generate buzz coming out of Tiff:

Felicity Jones: Oscar newbies hoping for a first citation this year

12 September 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Much like I took a look yesterday at veterans in contention for Oscar love the year, today I’m going to be turning my attention to the newbies who hope to receive some awards love. As I mentioned in the last piece, this is leading up to me doing a re-ranking of the contenders in all of the major categories beginning next week, but right now it’s just going to be a preview of which rookies to the Oscar season are gearing up to hopefully make their big debuts on the awards circuit. Some are even in a position to win Academy Awards. First up is Best Actor. In this race, the highest profile would be first time nominee would be either Steve Carell for Foxcatcher or Michael Keaton for Birdman. They’ve been frontrunners to many for basically this entire season. A tiny level down are more recent »

Who got Best Actress Oscars boost from Tiff: Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore ...?

12 September 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

This year's edition of the Toronto film festival ends this weekend. While six actors saw their Oscar odds soar, only three women were showcased. However, all three of them are already among the top five contenders on our Best Actress chart as our experts, editors and readers like you weigh in with their predictions.  -Break- Felicity Jones ("The Theory of Everything") As Jane Wilde, the long-suffering wife of scientist Stephen Hawking, Jones proves the promise that she showed in 2011's "Like Crazy" and last year's "The Invisible Woman." As the film is based on Wilde's memoir "Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen," it is not surprising that it tells her story too, including an emotional attachement to a music teacher (Charlie Cox) that threatens her marriage. The actress strikes just the right tone as a dutiful wife who is eventually overwhelmed by caring for her ailing husband and »

Unhappily ever after? 10 great films about struggling romances

12 September 2014 9:03 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is about a couple, but it isn’t necessarily a love story: Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) and Conor (James McAvoy) are happily married until a tragic event shakes them and separates them. It’s no Blue Valentine, but it’s no The Notebook either—the movie depicts two people united by marriage and trauma dealing with their grief in very different ways.

That plot alone might not sound entirely intriguing at first glance, but director Ned Benson created three separate films out of the story to create three different experiences. There’s Them, which opens Friday »

Updated 2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress and Supporting Actress

11 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

So the Best Actor field is packed ehc Well, that's nothing new and the lack of surprise when it comes to the field of contenders continues when we look at the Best Actress category, which I chopped down to 17 contenders from my initial 28 as several films such as Suite Francaise, Carol, Suffragette and others won't be hitting theaters this year and even if they did, they would have needed the fall film festival bump to get word started and that time has come and gone. Speaking of which, With Telluride, Venice and Toronto behind us and New York on the horizon, let's see how the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress fields have changed since the last update and what we should be looking out for in the future. Best Actress I have kept Amy Adams (Big Eyes) at the top of the Best Actress chart even though the way »
