Best Actress Besties Brie Larson and Saoirse Ronan Honored in Santa Barbara

8 February 2016 11:39 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Santa Barbara, Calif. — The Santa Barbara International Film Festival displayed the proper foresight in late November last year when selecting “Room” star Brie Larson and “Brooklyn’s” Saoirse Ronan as first-time tandem recipients of the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award: Both have remained out in front of the best actress Oscar race in a year marked by a number of female-centric narratives, and they continue to lock horns heading into the Feb. 28 Academy Awards ceremony.

Of course, nothing approaching competitive awareness was on display Monday night as the two ingenues — who have been previously recognized by Sbiff in the Virtuosos sidebar — enjoyed their dual tributes. In fact, they’ve become quite close on the circuit.

Alas, circumstances kept them apart this time — the production of “Kong: Skull Island,” to be specific. The blockbuster sequel has filled Larson’s schedule all season as she has bounced from locations in Vietnam, »

Clive Owen Joins Andrew Niccol’s Next Project ‘Anon’

28 January 2016 2:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Calling Anon writer-director Andrew Niccol‘s next project might be a bit presumptuous. Like a lot of directors, he’s had casts assemble for past projects that never came to fruition. Remember that high-concept film he had going with Orlando BloomVincent Cassel, and Olga Kurylenko in the works? All directors have projects stall, of course, but it’s especially noticeable in the case of […]

Here’s the next sci-fi world reflecting our own reality from the director of ‘Gattaca’

28 January 2016 11:53 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With movies like “Gattaca,” “In Time,” and “S1m0ne,” writer-director Andrew Niccol has made a career out of crafting sci-fi worlds that comment on emerging real-world issues like genetic engineering and the gap between the haves and the have-nots. Clive Owen will star in the next film from Niccol, Deadline reported today. Here’s the logline for this new movie, called “Anon”: [Owen] plays a detective in a world with no privacy, ignorance and anonymity. It is the end of crime. However, when Owen’s character stumbles on a young woman who doesn’t exist, he discovers it may not be the end of crime but the beginning. A world with no privacy — looks like Niccol is now using sci-fi to comment on issues we encounter in our own reality of dwindling privacy in a post-Snowden, social media-dominated world. 1997’s “Gattaca” established Niccol as a creator of quality, sleek-looking, and thought-provoking sci-fi. »

‘Amy’ Helmer Asif Kapadia and Andrew Niccol Plan New Films

28 January 2016 10:58 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Going where many a documentarian have gone before, and often to poor results, Asif Kapadia (Amy, Senna) has been tapped for the fiction feature Silver Ghost. It’s perhaps fitting that this also concerns the world of automobiles, albeit in a more relaxed area than Formula 1 racing, being the story of “the creation of the [Rolls-Royce], the odd-couple relationship between Charles Stewart Rolls and Henry Royce, the early days of the aviation industry and a passionate romance.” [Screen Daily]

It’s a passion project-of-sorts for producer Martin Scorsese, who’s been involved since the late Richard Attenborough was developing it. There’s no further word at this moment, but with the director’s Sikelia Productions at the helm (Zuma Productions and Anthony Haas are also involved on that front), one expects it’ll move along quickly.

Meanwhile, THR inform us Andrew Niccol has secured another high-concept sci-fi project, no doubt with the help of Clive Owen. »

Clive Owen To Star In Andrew Niccol's 'Anon'

28 January 2016 10:08 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you've been around these parts, you know we're big fans of Clive Owen. Lately, that's due to his terrific work across two seasons on Steven Soderbergh's "The Knick," but he's always a highlight of whatever project he's in, even if he sometimes gets slotted into movies that don't quite measure up to his skills (for example, "The Confirmation"). However, a just announced gig for the actor could be interesting. Read More: Interview: Clive Owen Talks Making 'The Knick,' Playing An Addict, And Working With Steven Soderbergh  Deadline reports that Owen will star in "Gattaca" and "Good Kill" director Andrew Niccol's "Anon." The sci-fi-ish thriller seems to echo "Minority Report," taking place in a world where crime has been eliminated and following a detective who comes across a woman who "doesn't exist." Okay, I'm intrigued. Owen is currently working on Luc Besson's big blockbuster "Valerian, »

The 25 most underrated film scores of the 1990s

The sensational, overlooked film scores from the years 1990 to 1999 that really are well worth digging out...

The movies went through tumultuous and exciting changes in the nineties. Quentin Tarantino exploded onto the scene with Reservoir Dogs, Generation X gave rise to slacker marvels like Clerks, and blockbusters like The Matrix put the awe back into special effects.

However, the 90s was also a sensational decade for film music, gifting us classics including the likes of Jurassic Park, Titanic, Total Recall, Braveheart and countless others. But the sheer quality of these soundtrack treasures shouldn’t overshadow those undervalued hidden gems that demonstrate the extraordinary range and versatility of our finest film composers, ones that may have passed you by. So here’s our selection of those incredible works: ranging from the earworming to the unsettling, the melodic to the chaotic, these are the scores that simply demand your attention. »
