Two new TV spots for The Accountant

21 September 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros. has released another two TV spots for the upcoming thriller The Accountant, which is directed by Gavin O’Connor and stars Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons and Jon Bernthal; watch them below after the official synopsis…

Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town Cpa office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of- the- art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

The Accountant is set for release on October 14th. »

Justin Timberlake And Anna Kendrick Cover “True Colors”

16 September 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With only a month and a half left until Trolls releases nationwide, music is going to get much more colorful. The soundtrack to the film will be out next week, and it boasts an exciting track listing filled with songs from stars of the movie. Justin Timberlake’s summer smash, “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” will obviously be on it, but he’ll also be a part of a few duets like “What U Workin’ With?” with Gwen Stefani. One of the duets debuted today, and it’s a collab with Anna Kendrick covering “True Colors.”

“True Colors” is sadly not a cover of Zedd, but instead, a cover of the 1986 Cyndi Lauper single – that’s not too bad either. The track kicks off with a light acoustic guitar as Timberlake’s vocals are introduced, until Kendrick joins him in the first pre-chorus. The duo’s voices complement each other beautifully throughout the song, »

The Hollars – Review

15 September 2016 4:38 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

Well, we were just looking at a family “drama-dy” from Japan, Our Little Sister, so let’s turn our multiplex jet airliner right around and head back to the states. Our destination is the good ole’ heartland of the Us of A, and lots of laughs and tears are in store. Now this family unit is a bit older than the Sister quartet, with two sons well past their twenties along with their spouses, and ‘exes’. Oh, and this time out the parents play a big part in the story. Speaking of airliners, the big box office winner last week was the true tale of flying heroics Sully, directed by actor Clint Eastwood. Well, this film is also directed by an actor, John Krasinski (he’s in front of the camera, too). This is his first time helming a film since 2009’s Brief Interviews With Hideous Men, his directing debut. »

Last year, fashionable lead-actress nominees Claire Danes and Taraji P. Henson picked looks flaunting chains, Kerry Washington dazzled in a metallic dress (hot off Marc Jacobs’ New York Fashion Week runway), and Tatiana Maslany nailed menswear in a Bouchra Jarrar couture cream tux. Here, top celebrity stylists weigh in on which trends will dominate the 2016 Emmy red carpet.

Prints

Micaela Erlanger, who’s previously styled fashion-forward Emmy contenders Tatiana Maslany and Michelle Dockery, predicts we’ll see plenty of prints. “Romantic florals and intarsia were all over the runways,” she says, also noting the trend’s migration onto the red carpet. “Take, for instance, Margot

Robbie’s Gucci gown from her ‘Suicide Squad’ tour.”

 Bold Hues

“The Emmys are always about color,” says Cristina Ehrlich, who has worked with Allison Williams, Anna Kendrick, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and expects this year’s nominees to take risks. Tara Swennen, who styled Julie Bowen in the lime-green Monique Lhuillier she »

Need a little colour and music injected into your day? Come on, who doesn't!

Sneak Peek at Fall’s Big-Budget Animated Oscar Pack

14 September 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For the studios, 2016 has mostly been about the year of the animal, highlighted by Disney’s billion-dollar “Zootopia” and Pixar’s “Finding Dory” (the new all-time animation box office leader).

However, the year culminates with another potentially strong Disney Oscar contender, “Moana” (November 23), along with two musicals: Illumination’s “Sing” (December 21), which played to cheering crowds this week at the Toronto Film Festival, and DreamWorks’ “Trolls” (Nov. 4). Warner Bros., meanwhile, offers the buddy comedy, “Storks” (September 23), which has attracted good world of mouth for its humor.

Disney explores new territory with the Polynesian-themed “Moana,” the first foray into CG for directors John Musker and Ron Clements (“The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid”), who push the legacy in a new direction with contemporary appeal.

The free-spirited, teenage Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) possesses strong navigational skills and is determined to sail out on a dangerous mission to save her island and eradicate its isolation. »
