As follow-up to the critical darling The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson is bringing us Inherent Vice, a 1970s-set crime drama based on the Thomas Pynchon novel about a drug-fueled detective on a search for his missing ex-girlfriend. His cast includes Jena Malone, Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, and Maya Rudolph. This much-anticipated film isn't scheduled to hit theaters until December, but one insider has tipped what fans should expect from P.T. Anderson's latest. The Film Stage spoke with an audience member from an early screening of the film. Read this unnamed viewer's impressions below: "Mix together The Big Lebowski and Altman.s The Long Goodbye, turn it into a two-and-a-half hour Pt Anderson epic and you.re getting close to the awesome experience of Inherent Vice. Even Joaquin Phoenix.s performance has echoes of 70′s Elliot Gould with a touch of The Dude. »

As promised last week, here I am again with some more up to date Oscar predictions. They’re not amazingly different from what I debuted with, but they do already show a change in focus, at least in terms of some of the second tier contenders. We’ve still got a long way to go and these new predictions will likely be completely wrong anyway, but I feel ever so slightly more confident in backing these sorts of horses as opposed to other ones. If nothing else, this sort of shows where I’m going from as the months pass and the race begins to evolve into something actually competitive… The big difference that you’ll notice besides the changes that I made in each category is that I’m also listing predicted winners now. As such, you can see that films like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, »

It is hard to think of a filmmaker today whose work is as excitingly original as Paul Thomas Anderson’s. For the second time in his career, the director is adapting an ambitious work of fiction: Thomas Pynchon’s dark mystery Inherent Vice. However, similar to how the writer/director used Upton Sinclair’s Oil as a loose foundation for There Will Be Blood, Inherent Vice will stray quite a bit from its source material, according to star Josh Brolin.
In a chat with Ireland’s Independent, Brolin revealed that the film is quite different from the novel. “We took it I think in a direction that the book doesn’t necessarily go, hoping it will work,” he said. Pynchon’s novel received a mixed critical reception when it came out in 2009, with some citing is a failed attempt to merge the tropes and atmosphere of pulp fiction with the »

According to a new report from Mockingjay.net, "Hunger Games 3: Mockingjay" Johanna Mason star, Jena Malone (left), recently hit up her Instagram account to talk about a self portrait she has for the Catching Fire flick. However, while doing so, she also dropped a big,short spoiler hint about what we can expect to see in the final Mockingjay Part 1 and 2 flicks. And it sounds like they're going to be pretty wild. Jena stated: “Johanna Mason self portrait in the bathroom of my trailer. On the set of Catching fire. So excited for the next two installment. When the world turns completely upside down :)" Uh oh! So, it sounds like we're going to be in for quite a whirlwind ride. Part 1 stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Stef Dawson, Evan Ross, »
Filmmaker Matt Wolf's Teenage, a glossy video collage about the growth of youth culture in the early to mid-20th century, is inspired by author Jon Savage's Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture, 1875-1945. Austin Film Society hosted a screening of the film (with Wolf in attendance) last August, but Teenage returns to Austin this weekend for a theatrical run.
Opening in 1904, scenes of children at factories are shown as narrators explain how child-labor laws led to further schooling for kids. Jena Malone (Contact, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Skyfall) are two of the four voices who speak from a specific point of view.
Amid the vintage photos and footage are live-action sequences -- with color adjustments and added graininess to blend in with the older stock -- used to illustrate singular stories representing significant movements. These silent scenes, scored with ambient »

Today’s teenagers may be their own industry, but the idea that there’s a distinctive time between childhood and adulthood is still relatively new.
Filmmaker Matt Wolf explores this concept, and the genesis of western youth culture, in Teenage, an intoxicating, genre-bending portrait of teenage life inspired by Jon Savage’s eponymous book. With never-before-seen archival footage, recreations, an original score from Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox, and voiceovers from the likes of Ben Whishaw and Jena Malone, Wolf creates an experimental, creative non-fiction collage that covers the turn of the century through 1945.

So as promised I watched the first episode of From Dusk Till Dawn the series and….pretty damn good actually. It starts off with a scene that will come to mean more as the series wears on and which calls back to the second straight to DVD From Dusk Till Dawn sequel Hangman’s Daughter which dealt with the origins of Salma Hayek’s Santanico Pandemonium head vampire character. After this we are back in sort of familiar territory with Don Johnson playing a suitably grizzled and weary Texas Ranger Earl McGraw on the look out for the Gecko Brothers who are on the lam and headed for Mexico.
Basically when it comes down to it, From Dusk Till Dawn is like a faithful adaptation of the original novel that the first film was based on if that were the case and it wasn’t an early Tarantino script. So »

Already setting pre-order records, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is set to be released to the UK public on Monday March 17th and we’ve got an exclusive first look at two great snippets of interviews from the Blu-ray and DVD’s with Jena Malone talking about her character Johanna Mason and Elizabeth Banks who takes on the role of Effie Trinket.
If you’re looking to see what we thought of the film, then head right here for our review and more details of the release but let’s face it, you’ve all got this pre-ordered already; right? For me The Hunger Games has safely and positively wiped the memory of such Ya things as Twilight with the Suzanne Collins novels being bought stunningly to the big screen.
They’ve not only put together great movies but also very impressive casts that are led by the non-stoppable Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen. »

In its first weekend of release, the "Hunger Games" sequel sold an estimated 3.9 million DVD and Blu-ray units. It was also the biggest digital launch in Lionsgate’s history. Those opening weekend digital sales topped the first "Hunger Games" by a whopping 40%. "Fire" was the #1 opening on all major digital platforms, including iTunes, Xbox, Amazon, Vudu, Comcast Xfinity, Verizon FiOS, Google Play and Sony Entertainment Network. "This is a monster opening and a tremendous result for the second film in a franchise, underscoring the enormous momentum of 'The Hunger Games' films," said Lionsgate's Ron Schwartz, in a press release. "Opening weekend packaged media sales of 'Catching Fire' were comparable to the first 'Hunger Games' title released nearly two years »

Director: Francis Lawrence
Running Time: 146 minutes
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) returns in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire to celebrate being a victor along with Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson). Of course there isn’t really a lot to celebrate. She’s alive, sure, but the whole of Panem are now looking at her, and at District 12, and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is not best pleased that she is giving the people hope when they should be afraid.
The second story in the Hunger Games series takes an even darker turn as Katniss must smile for the camera and convince everyone she is madly in love with Peeta, not just to save her own life but the lives of those she loves too. So when she is thrown once more »
