Paul Haggis: "I Don't Think" Crash Should Have Won Best Picture Oscar

12 August 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Really good, but maybe not the greatest. Crash may have won the Oscar for Best Motion Picture in 2006, but even director Paul Haggis doesn’t think his film about racial tensions should’ve won that golden statuette.  “Was it the best film of the year? I don’t think so. There were great films that year,” Haggis told HitFix in a recent interview of his movie, which starred Don Cheadle, Sandra Bullock, and Thandie Newton, among others. “But you shouldn’t ask me what the best film of the year [...] »

Crash director Paul Haggis doesn’t think the film deserved Best Picture

12 August 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s hard to argue that one of the most shocking Academy Award upsets of all time happened close to a decade ago, when Crash took home Best Picture over Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain (and three other nominated films hailed as more deserving) at the 2006 Oscars. Considering that many were even surprised to see the movie nominated in that category in the first place, its win outraged film fans everywhere.

In a new interview with HitFix, writer/director of the film Paul Haggis, who also garnered an Oscar that night for Best Original Screenplay, admits that even he wouldn’t have picked Crash for the coveted award.

Haggis was asked about the criticism directed at the film, to which he replied, “Was it the best film of the year? I don’t think so. There were great films that year. Good Night, and Good Luck, amazing film. Capote, terrific film. »

Robots Are Runnin’ Things In First Teaser For HBO’s Westworld

10 August 2015 2:41 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A major contender on HBO’s forthcoming TV slate is the sci-fi series Westworld. A revamped small screen adaptation of Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name, it’s packing in the pedigree both in front and behind the camera. So, why then has the network kept the show on such a short marketing leash? It’s likely due to the release date being pushed back from end of 2015 to the noncommittal “sometime in 2016.”

Nevertheless, yesterday saw the first new glimpse at the movie since December – when HBO included a brief shot at the show in its “year ender” promo – as a 30-second teaser clip aired during the True Detective finale. As opposed to a full-length trailer fleshing out the narrative beats, this is a tantalizing tonal appetizer of what’s to come.

It opens as Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores undergoes an interrogation, followed by momentary flashes of seemingly unconnected people. »

10 August 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The last few weeks have seen a slow trickle release of images and short clips from HBO's upcoming "Westworld" TV show and so far, the project is looking mighty promising.

The clips so far have been so short they haven't shown much to really get excited about but this newly released spot is perfect and the kind of cryptic marketing we don't see too often anymore; at least not for mainstream projects. Not only does it showcase both the sci-fi and western aspects of the show, it suggests the moods and themes of the show. All in 30 seconds.

Westworld TV show: first trailer lands online

10 August 2015 12:31 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

"Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?" asks the first trailer for HBO's Westworld TV series...

The Westworld TV series is one that's had our attention for a while. Of all the sci-fi films to rejig for TV, Westworld always seemed like a decent fit, to this writer at least. With modern effects and tense long-form storytelling, there could be a great telly show within the Western-themed artificial-reality idea.

Today, the first trailer for the show has landed online, and offers a nice big spoonful of creepiness alongside a portion of lovely visuals. You can have a look here...

Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Thandie Newton, James Marsden, and Evan Rachel Wood. It's expected to land next year. 

More as we hear it.

Watch: HBO Reveals First 'Westworld' Trailer

9 August 2015 8:08 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Way back when, Arnold Schwarzenegger was set to star in an remake of Michael Crichton's 1973 feature Westworld. Schwarzenegger became governor, the remake was shelved, but then Tarsem Singh was brought in to direct... nothing came of that film, but now it has arrived at HBO with Jonathan Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight) writing and directing (at least the first episode) and today HBO debuted the first trailer. The series takes place at a technologically advanced amusement park designed for rich vacationers with the goal of satisfying your every dream. Robots staff the park and when a group of vacationers choose a wild west adventure things go haywire and a rogue gunslinging robot begins stalking the guests. The stacked cast includes Ed Harris, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Anthony Hopkins and Jeffrey Wright. No word yet on when exactly the show will arrive, "Coming in 2016" is all the trailer gives us, »

Get Ready to Have Artificial-Intelligence Nightmares With Westworld’s Teaser

9 August 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Some lucky gal named Dolores is asleep and having a nightmare for everyone to watch. The dream's called Westworld, and it'll be "a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin," according to HBO. The dream will feature Anthony HopkinsEd Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, and a creepy, creepy narrator, among others; Jonathan Nolan is the executive producer, scribe, and director. (Wow, yep, this is a dream all right.) Westworld, which is being touted as an original series, was inspired by Michael Crichton's similarly titled 1973 sci-fi Western, which saw an eerie, stony-staring Yul Brynner terrorize a futuristic theme park as a robotic rogue. HBO reportedly wants this to be the network's next Game of Thrones–type phenomenon, but it looks like it's going to be more of an Ex Machina–meets–American Horror Story–type situation. »

HBO Releases Westworld Teaser Trailer with 30 Seconds of Stunning Footage

9 August 2015 6:27 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

The season finale of HBO's True Detective Season 2 tonight presented an extra special treat that has me ready to saddle up and ride off into the old west. That treat is now online and I highly recommend you give the first Westworld teaser trailer a few watches below at minimum.

Westworld is based off Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie that shares the same name. It's a mishmash of the old west and science fiction that the roughly 30 seconds of footage packed into the crazy trailer does a fantastic job of illustrating.

If you're already intrigued then get a load of the Westworld cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Jimmi Simpson, Clifton Collins, Jr., Simon Quarterman and Angela Sarafyan.

Unfortunately, HBO won't be premiering Westworld until 2016 so try to holster any excitement this trailer stimulates. »

Read More: Ranking HBO's First 'Westworld' Images From Most to Least Bonkers We have lots of questions about the upcoming HBO series "Westworld," but the biggest is probably "why on Earth did J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan want to remake that cheesy Michael Crichton killer robot movie from 1973"? But as the above teaser (aired during tonight's "True Detective" season finale) showcases, the new drama seems a lot less interested in killer robot antics and a lot more excited about delving into questions about identity and reality.  Featuring a crazy good cast including Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Rodrigo Santoro and Shannon Woodward, "Westworld" premieres in 2016.

The first teaser for HBO’s “Westworld” is a mere 30 seconds, but it manages to pack in plenty of weird happenings.

The sci-fi Western, based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 movie of the same name, aired its first footage during the season 2 finale of “True Detective.”

“Have you ever questioned the nature of your reality?” a voiceover asks Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores, who seems to be in a dream.

With the series described as “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin,” the film took place in a futuristic theme park in which a malfunction caused robots to wreak havoc on guests. HBO ordered “Westworld” to series last November.

Along with Wood, the cast also includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Miranda Otto, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Angela Sarafyan and Simon Quarterman.
