Paul Dano to Direct His First Film, Based on the Novel ‘Wildlife’

6 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Emboldened, perhaps, by the life-affirming message of “Swiss Army Man,” Paul Dano is set to go behind the camera for the first time. The actor will make his directorial debut with “Wildlife,” an adaptation of Richard Ford’s 1990 novel that Dano has co-written along with Zoe Kazan.

Neither actor is expected to appear onscreen in the film, reports Variety. “Wildlife” tells of a teenager named Joe Brinson whose parents’ marriage slowly dissolves after the family moves to Montana in 1960. Dano and Kazan have been in a relationship since 2007 and co-starred in “Ruby Sparks” (which Kazan wrote solo) together four years ago. Kazan’s recent credits include “Our Brand Is Crisis” and the South by Southwest premiere “My Blind Brother,” while Dano has been seen in “12 Years a Slave,” “Prisoners” and “Love & Mercy.”

23 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Pottermania is back, just not as you once knew it. Nearly a decade after J.K. Rowling completed her epic seven-book series and five years after Daniel Radcliffe ended an eight-film career as The Boy Who Lived, a new chapter in the life of Harry Potter is coming to West End. Entitled “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the two-part play shows how Harry is dealing with being an Auror, father, and the most famous wizard alive. Rowling and her crew have been tight-lipped about what’s next for Harry, but here’s what we know. Harry will be played by veteran West. »

The adventure comedy follows castaway Hank (Dano) who encounters a corpse named Manny (Radcliffe) when it washes up on shore. The pair become friends, embarking on a journey to bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams.

Kicks tells the story of a 15-year-old boy who enlists a friend to undertake a dangerous mission through Oakland, California, to recover his stolen Air Jordans sneakers.

Kicks is an accomplished first feature and will resonate with Canadian film lovers,” said Michael Robson, senior vice-president of acquisitions and business development for D Films. “The film boasts breakout performances from a mostly unknown cast and is a perfect complement to D Films’ roster of titles »

'BoJack Horseman' creator breaks down the year's best episode of television

24 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman, one of the very best shows on television, returned for a wonderful — and, somehow, darker than ever — third season on Friday, and Netflix ordered a fourth season later that day. I'll have an episode-by-episode breakdown later this week, but I'm first pleased to bring you this long conversation with BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg. (Note: We did this a week and a half ago, prior to the renewal announcement, so his last answer refers to the show's fate being up in the air, even as he talks about plans for what he wants to do next with it.) Originally, I had intended to only ask questions about the season's remarkable fourth installment — one of the best episodes of TV I've seen all year — a largely dialogue-free installment set underwater, where BoJack's attempt to promote Secretariat at a film festival on the ocean floor goes awry. But then I realized »

After Harry Potter: Celebrating Daniel Radcliffe's career on his birthdayAfter Harry Potter: Celebrating Daniel Radcliffe's career on his birthdayAdriana Floridia7/23/2016 3:02:00 Pm

Being a child star in one of the biggest film franchises of all time can't be an easy feat. However, Daniel Radcliffe, who most may know as Harry Potter, has made bold and beautiful decisions after playing the famous wizard for a decade.

Today, Daniel turns twenty-seven, and we want to celebrate the last five years in which he's put away his wand, and instead has dazzled us in new and exciting ways that we honestly never could have anticipated. A young actor who keeps surprising us with his role choice -  as in his latest film, Swiss Army Man, where he literally plays a  corpse - Radcliffe has cast his own magical spell on us, and we've been entranced ever since we »

Harry Potter Reunion Alert: Bonnie Wright Attends Daniel Radcliffe's Off-Broadway Play and Our Hearts Are Swelling

22 July 2016 10:53 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Reunion alert! Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley, a.k.a. Daniel Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright, reunited Thursday night, and it is everything. Harry Potter fans know that these two ultimately end up together in the series after several trials and tribulations (read: near-death experiences), and it looked like Wright returned the favor by supporting Radcliffe at his off-Broadway play, Privacy. Joining Wright was the director of the first two Harry Potter films, Chris Columbus, so it really was a miniature family reunion! Fortunately, Wright snapped a picture and shared it on Instagram where fans could freak out with excitement. "Reunion! Congrats Dan on another stellar performance," she captioned the picture. »

Teensy Reviews: 6 Films We Didn't Review Properly

21 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

These reviews could fit in a tweet. Presented to assuage Nathaniel's guilt from not having properly reviewed them when they arrived, though he sometimes dropped hints of his feelings in other contexts.

In Theaters

Swiss Army Man (Daniels)

Story: A suicidal man (Paul Dano) finds companionship and a new zest for life when he meets a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe)

Review: Wobbly start, Self sabotaging end. But, Oh!, those imaginative mental heights in the middle. 

Grade: Middle Hour: A- / The Rest: C+

Genius (Michael Grandage)

Story: An account of the long working relationship between famed editor Max Perkins (Colin Firth) and one of his literary finds Thomas Wolfe (Jude Law). Let us not mention the women (Nicole Kidman, The Lovely Laura Linney) lest we rage again at the terrible gender politics

Review: The work of an editor is shape & rhythm, so why is a film about a great one lumpy and lead-footed? »

10 Creepy, Weird Gifts Fans Have Given Celebrities

21 July 2016 1:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

When you idolize someone, a great way to show your adoration is through gift-giving, right? Well some celebrity fans agree, but they take things too far. Celebs don’t always receive normal gifts from adoring fans – they sometimes receive gifts that would make you cringe.

1. Taylor Swift – Turtle Shell

Taylor Swift has a knack for making the celebrity world seem somewhat normal, but one gift from an adoring fan was decidedly not so. This past Christmas, Swift opened a package to find a turtle shell with her own face painted on it.

2. Harry Styles – Sanitary Napkin

Most people would give a boyfriend a customized t-shirt or a watch. These gifts are personal and show you care, but aren’t so personal that they’re awkward. But some people take a much more intimate route. For Harry Styles, that meant receiving a sanitary napkin with his name written on it in Sharpie. »

20 July 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that “Swiss Army Man” has considerably raised the collective cachet of Daniel Kwan & Daniel Scheinert (known together as Daniels), one of their earlier works is being brought to greater attention. “Possibilia” first premiered at Tribeca in 2014 before being spotlighted as part of Sundance’s New Frontiers the next year, and now the “interactive love story set in the multiverse” is set to be released online. Watch its trailer below.

Daniel Radcliffe's Harry Potter Audition Will Make the Hairs Stand Up on Your Neck

20 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Once upon a time, Daniel Radcliffe was just the boy who lived through a grueling audition process. Last year, footage surfaced of the young actor's original screen test for the Harry Potter series. This must be circa 1999, given that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was released in 2001. It's simultaneously adorable and kind of chilling to see Radcliffe reading the lines that he'll eventually say on screen. In honor of the actor's birthday this week, let's revisit the video! Now if only we could get our hands on Emma Watson's screen test . . . »

19 July 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The success of recent “Fast and Furious” sequels has apparently been enough to bring all of Vin Diesel’s other dormant franchises back to life. After 2013’s genuinely good “Riddick,” the actor will soon be seen as the title character in “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” — the action series’ first installment since 2005, and Diesel’s first since the original came out in 2001. Watch the trailer below and be reminded that time is indeed a flat circle.
