19 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

2015 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Droz Palermo’s One & Two

13 November 2014 9:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Well versed in the nooks and crannies of the Missourian backdrop, for obvious reasons, the Midwestern state rooted Andrew Droz Palermo knows a thing or two about the casual barbarity of this unpopular indie film destinations. Filmed in North Carolina and with the environment informing his character set, the hopes, impulses and desires in the pinned down teenaged protagonists in his Park City award-winning docu feature debut Rich Hill might ostensibly exist in his feature debut, One & Two. Working alongside cinematographer Autumn Durald (featured in Variety), much like the probable working approach, this began production sans drawing attention to itself (filming began in the mid-summer months), this should have steadily been worked towards a Sundance berth. Sherman was a Producing Fellow with the project back in 2011, so perhaps much like the Rich Hill characters, Palermo can also dream big with back to back years at the fest.

We search for the ultimate Cool Girl, in honor of 'Gone Girl'

3 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

"Men always say that as the defining compliment, don’t they? She’s a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. »

'Thick' girl anthems: On Meghan Trainor and Bj The Chicago Kid's 'perfect' songs

13 August 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bj The Chicago Kid released his new song and video for "Perfect" this week, just as Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" rises more in radio ranks and singles sales. Both of these songs are addressing body positivity, particularly for women who don't fit beauty standards found in fashion mags and, well, music videos. They both define what is "perfect" about "thicker" girls. And they are both imperfect in this pursuit. Bj The Chicago Kid's fresh R&B jam is seemingly part of a suite, with his previous "Fly Girl Get 'Em" (which I prefer) playing part one. "I see you trying to disguise that potential," he sings in the latter. "She put her hair up in a ponytail / No make-up on her face / A wrinkled t-shirt and some jogging pants." Bj's new ode "Perfect" turns his eyes again toward appearances, but more specifically to the body. He calls "Perfect »

Robert Pattinson out of ‘Mission: Blacklist’ movie (photo: Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson in ‘Life’) Robert Pattinson and Mission: Blacklist have parted ways. Pattinson, whose name had been attached to the project for two years — since Cannes 2012 — has reportedly dropped out due to scheduling issues. Now, what could those issues be? Well, Robert Pattinson, best known (at least for the time being) as the vampire Edward Cullen in the immensely popular Twilight movie franchise, has no less than two movies opening at Cannes 2014: David Michôd’s thriller The Rover, co-starring Guy Pearce, which will be shown as one of Cannes’ Midnight Screenings, and David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars, also featuring Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Mia Wasikowska, and Carrie Fisher, and which is in the running for the Palme d’Or.

Here's to Harold Ramis: Film Independent and Jason Reitman Provide Us With a Lesson on Coping

21 March 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Tonight, is for Harold Ramis," Jason Reitman declared upon taking the stage at yesterday's Film Independent at Lacma Live Read. Reitman, whose father Ivan Reitman, collaborated with Ramis on "Animal House" and the "Ghostbusters" films, chose an earlier draft of the "Groundhog Day" script for the performance -- a much darker draft in which Bill Murray’s character, Phil, actively counts the number of times he has re-lived February 2, Groundhog Day.As previously announced via Reitman's Twitter, the roles of Phil and Rita were performed by Jason Bateman and Elizabeth Reaser, while Jeff Ross and Mae Whitman provided the voices for Wpbh-TV9 cameraman Larry, Nancy Taylor and a host of other supporting characters.Stephen Tobolowsky's participation, however, came as a pleasant surprise. Tobolowsky, who originated the role of "Needlenose" Ned Ryerson, reprised his role onstage for last night's live read with just as much gusto as ever. His initial »

Jason Bateman, Jason Reitman Honor Harold Ramis at Live Read of ‘Groundhog Day’

21 March 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Film Independent at Lacma’s Live Read performances are always special – cold recitations of classic screenplays, the readings are never rehearsed, recorded, or repeated. But Thursday night’s live read of the existentialist comedy “Groundhog Day,” directed and co-written by the late Harold Ramis, had a particularly special, melancholy tinge.

After a short introduction from Film Independent at Lacma curator Elvis Mitchell, who called the pic “the closest we’ve come to having a Frank Capra film for the modern era,” director and series creator Jason Reitman spoke of his admiration for Ramis, who collaborated with his father Ivan Reitman on five projects.

“I was 12 days old on the set of ‘Animal House,’” Reitman recalled. “Think about that.”

Following his brief remarks, Reitman introduced the night’s cast, which included Jason Bateman in Bill Murray’s Phil Connors role, Elizabeth Reaser as Andie MacDowell’s Rita, Jeff Ross as Chris Elliott’s Larry, »

'True Detective' deleted scene shows why Cohle and Laurie broke up

13 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

One of the few complaints about "True Detective" Season 1 was its lack of well-developed female characters. Case in point was Rust Cohle's girlfriend Laurie (Elizabeth Reaser), who only appeared in one episode ("The Secret Fate of All Life," episode 5) before it was revealed that she and Cohle broke up.

Turns out much more of Laurie was filmed for the HBO drama, but it had to be cut for time. In a deleted scene released by Variety, viewers learn the true reason the couple broke up: Cohle didn't want to have more children, underlining his pessimistic outlook on the world at this point in the show.

It's clear that this is a deal-breaker for Laurie, and considering where "True Detective" goes after their split, it's probably a good thing they weren't together. But who knows, maybe glass-half-full Cohle has a chance for happiness and a family again in his future. »

‘True Detective’ Deleted Scene: Watch Matthew McConaughey's Romantic Relationship Crumble (Video)

13 March 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

For better or worse, the “True Detective” Season 1 finale didn't wrap every aspect of the show up in a nice bow, and one of the mysteries was what went wrong between Matthew McConaughey's character and his girlfriend. A deleted scene (above) from the critically-acclaimed HBO drama gives some sort of closure. See photos: 10 ‘True Detective’ Acting Teams We Want to See Next (Photos) As any fan of the series would expect, it was Rust Cohle's bleak philosophy about life that pushed nice nurse Laurie Spencer (Elizabeth Reaser) away.

'True Detective' Deleted Scene Shows Rust Cohle's Fear of Fatherhood

13 March 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Update: This clip has been removed per HBO's request.

A deleted scene from True Detective reveals the philosophies that kept Matthew McConaughey's character, Rust Cohle, from becoming a father. He talks about his worries in it with Laurie Spencer, the character played by Twilight series and Grey's Anatomy actress Elizabeth Reaser in the first season's fifth episode, in a clip premiered by Extra. As a whole, the idea of bringing children into the world is a touchy subject for the reclusive detective.

'True Detective' deleted scene: Why Rust and Lori broke up -- Video

13 March 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

True Detective fans certainly have no delusions that damaged philosopher Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) was an easy man to live with; his repartee with partner Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) was proof of that. But the only true glimpses viewers had of Rust’s brief attempt at a functioning relationship — with Hart family friend Lori (Elizabeth Reaser) — were in fragmented scenes that played like fading memories. (Spoilers ahead.)

Marty’s wife Maggie (Michelle Monaghan) introduced Rust to Lori after the detectives “solved” the grisly murder of Dora Lange. Beyond that, pretty much all we knew was that the relationship ended badly. »

True Detective Review: “The Secret Fate of All Life” (Season 1, Episode 5)

16 February 2014 6:44 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It all began with a slow set-up focused on two very different detectives teaming up to solve a murder. It built through a crescendo of elevating darkness, with despair and deceit at the centre of each episode. It blew us away with an astonishing six-minute tracking shot at the end of episode four that shifted the drama into something urgent and alive. Now, it beckons our attention with every scene, lest we miss a subtle nuance or line of dialogue to reveal more about the broken hearts and battered psyches of Detectives Martin Hart and Rust Cohle. Few series have busted out of the gate with such brooding brilliance, only to sweep that from underneath us – and in the process, become even bolder by the minute. “The Secret Fate of All Life” is a disarming hour of television that flips everything we thought we might have known about True Detective in the most satisfying way. »

Exclusive: Bonnie & Clyde Blu-ray Featurette

28 January 2014 8:45 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After airing on the A&E Network last month, fans can now own the hit two-night mini-series Bonnie and Clyde on Blu-ray and DVD starting today, January 28. Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger star as the legendary bank robbers, who turned from common criminals to national sensations with the help of the media. We have an exclusive featurette with stars Holly Hunter (Emma Parker) and Elizabeth Reaser (P.J. Lane), who explain how desperately Americans needed entertainment during that time period, so they turned to stories about Bonnie and Clyde instead of more depressing tales. Take a look at this behind-the-scenes featurette you can't find anywhere else, which includes historic headlines that show just how famous this duo really was.

Though Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger, Jane Eyre) & Clyde Barrow's (Emile Hirsch, Into the Wild) crime spree is legendary, their story has never been told quite like this. Fueled by their passion for »

New Trailer for HBO’s True Detective Starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson

2 January 2014 3:33 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Anticipation was already pretty high for HBO’s upcoming anthology series True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, but the recent reviews heaping effusive praise on the show’s first few episodes have made the wait for next Sunday even more excruciating.  In an effort to ease some of the pain, HBO has released another new trailer for the eight-episode drama, which revolves around the lives of two detectives during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana.  Director Cary Fukunaga—who helmed every episode himself—looks to have put together a gorgeously haunting design for the show, and I can’t wait to tune in for the first installment next weekend. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  Also starring Michelle Monaghan, Alexandra Daddario, Kevin Dunn, Elizabeth Reaser, Michael Potts, and Tory Kittles, True Detective premieres on HBO Sunday, January 12th at 9/8c. »
