Oscar Season Preview

29 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Now that summer movie season is over, it’s Oscar season. During winter and fall many Oscar-hopeful movies are released. This is our overview of what you can expect leading up to the 2015 Oscars. 

For fans of film, fall and winter are the best times of the year. This is when, typically, some of the most well-received films are released. Unofficially, we call it Oscar Season, and there’s good reason that the year’s best films are saved for last. Any film released before the end of the year is eligible for Oscar nomination. Therefore, if you release your film towards the end of the year, it will be fresher in audience and critic minds when awards time rolls around in early March/late February (February 22nd, 2015 to be exact).

In preparation for the fall and winter movie season, we’ve put together this preview of films that have been getting lots of attention. »

The first Fall stab at Golden Globe predictions

26 September 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s that time again…time to take a stab at Golden Globe predictions. As I previously mentioned in my last installment, I was originally planning on waiting to take a new look at Golden Globe predictions until the summer was over (so basically now), but I just couldn’t resist. Fast forward to today and I’m back now with what’s my fourth look at the Golden Globe Awards, with this time around, another new theory to try and drum up some different/more accurate predictions. Anyway, here goes nothing! To reiterate one more time, the biggest difference that you’ll see here between the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is that they tend to go for the bigger names or the bigger productions, as well as more European fare. So yes, films like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, David Fincher’s Gone Girl, and Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher are here, »

22 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While the Oscars have yet to make room for casting directors — a pivotal part of the Best Picture equation — the oversight isn't stopping the Casting Society of America from readying its third decade of picking up the Academy's slack. Csa announced Monday morning that the 30th Annual Artios Awards will honor Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning director Rob Marshall and Emmy Award-winning casting director Ellen Lewis for their individual work in the world of casting.

'Into the Woods' character names not getting Disney makeover (Updated)

19 September 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Update: Musical theater fans can rest easy. According to Disney, a cast listing in which Into the Woods characters were listed as their Disney counterparts on Disney.com was incorrect, and the page has been edited. This post has been updated to reflect this.

Playbill and other sites, including EW, pointed out that on the official website for the Stephen Sondheim adaptation, Cinderella’s Stepmother was listed as Lady Tremaine, Cinderella’s Prince was Prince Charming, and Rapunzel’s Prince was Flynn Rider. The generic names of the musical were altered so as to match the Disney-specific versions of those characters. »

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. »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

MPAA Ratings for 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay', 'Into the Woods', 'Blackhat' and More

16 September 2014 3:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I'll be more curious to see the MPAA rating for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 once things in that story get really bloody, but today we have the PG-13 rating for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and it doesn't seem all that our of the ordinary, "intense sequences of violence and action, some disturbing images and thematic material". Today's bulletin also gives us a PG-rating for Rob Marshall's Into the Woods while Addicted, Dear White People and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby all score an "R" rating. Also getting an "R" rating is what may be the first MPAA rating for a 2015 release, unless I'm forgetting something as Michael Mann's cyber thriller Blackhat, starring Chris Hemsworth gets a rather soft R-rating. Check out the complete bulletin below. Addicted Rated R For strong sexual content, nudity, language and brief drug use. Release Date: October 10, 2014 Blackhat Rated »

‘Interstellar’ and ‘Into the Woods’ Get New Posters

16 September 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

As we discussed in the latest Screen Rant Underground podcast, 2014 has a pretty eclectic mix of movies set for release this fall. Among the many titles that could prove to be either great or terrible are Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi wormhole drama Interstellar and Disney’s Into the Woods, an adaptation of the Broadway musical of the same name, which was directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago).

Interstellar stars Matthew McConnaughey and Anne Hathaway as two astronauts who are sent on a mission to find… well, something to help humanity, after Earth suffers a worsening drought with water resources that cannot sustain the population for long. On the other end of the genre spectrum, Into the Woods is a collection of elements from ...

The movie, which combines the story of a childless couple with the Grimm fairy tales, also stars Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as her prince, Johnny Depp as the Wolf, and James Corden and Emily Blunt as the cursed Baker and his wife.

Into the Woods is adapted from Stephen Sondheim's hit stage musical of the same name and is directed by Rob Marshall.

Meryl Streep Is A Creepy Witch In Maiden Poster For Disney’s Into The Woods

16 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the more left-field Oscar contenders heading into this year’s awards season is undoubtedly Disney’s musical fairytale, Into The Woods. It’s based on Stephen Sondheim’s atypical and indeed award-winning musical deconstruction of the titular tale, which weaves together a variety of renown fantasy heroes who unite against Meryl Streep’s spiteful witch.

Directed by Chicago’s Rob Marshall, the film is essentially a melting pot of the studio’s beloved characters from the Brothers Grimm catalogue, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk, who are all drawn together to face the aforementioned villain thanks to a loveable baker and his wife — played by James Corden and Emily Blunt, respectively.

What’s most impressive about Into The Woods, though, is it’s remarkable ensemble cast, which features the likes of Anna Kendrick, Johnny Deep as The Wolf, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine and Tracey Ullman. »
