‘Star Wars,’ ‘Revenant’ Rain on ‘Mad Max’ Parade at Visual Effects Society Awards

2 February 2016 11:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If indeed “Mad Max: Fury Road” is set to win the visual effects Oscar later this month, as many pundits believe, it hit a bit of a speed bump along the way tonight as films like “The Revenant” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” out-shined George Miller’s high octane actioner.

Star Wars” picked up four awards, while “The Revenant” claimed three. “Mad Max: Fury Road” did manage to beat “The Force Awakens” for honors in effects simulations, for its “toxic storm” sequence.

In feature animation, the Ves zigged where most of the industry zagged, awarding three trophies to Pixar’s tepidly received “The Good Dinosaur” and only one to the company’s Oscar favorite, “Inside Out.” And like Lucy yanking the football away from Charlie Brown, the Ves dangled six noms in front of Fox/Blue Sky’s “The Peanuts Movie” but gave it no trophies.

Netflix has announced that they've renewed their political drama "House of Cards" for a fifth season - over a month ahead of the release of the fourth season on the streaming giant on March 4th.

The fifth season is expected to contain the show's usual thirteen episode run and will air in the first quarter of 2017. Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey will reprise his role of Frank Underwood, but show runner Beau Willimon is bowing out at the end of season four.

David Fincher, Joshua Donen, Beau Willimon, Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, John David Coles and Eric Roth serve as executive producers.

'House of Cards' Renewed for Season 5 with One Big Change

28 January 2016 6:13 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Netflix's hit series House of Cards will return with all 13 episodes of Season 4 streaming on Friday, March 4. Earlier today, the streaming service issued an early renewal for Season 5, which will debut sometime in 2017. However, the news also came with the announcement that series creator, executive producer and showrunner Beau Willimon is leaving the show. Here's what both Netflix and production company Media Rights Capital had to say in a statement, courtesy of Deadline.

"Netflix and Mrc owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Beau Willimon for his strong narrative vision for House of Cards over the show's first four seasons. As an Academy Award nominated writer, he made his first foray into television and built a riveting and critically acclaimed series, establishing his place in TV history. The producers, cast and crew join us in wishing Beau the best in his next creative adventure."

Beau Willimon is an accomplished playwright »

‘Trumbo’ Writer John McNamara Honored by Writers Guild

26 January 2016 10:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Writers Guild of America West has named screenwriter John McNamara the recipient of its Paul Selvin Award for his screenplay for “Trumbo.”

Based on the biography by Bruce Cook, the film chronicles the life of Blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, exploring issues of political freedom, censorship and civil liberties.

McNamara, who is also a producer on “Trumbo,” will be recognized at the Writers Guild Awards L.A. ceremony on Feb. 13, at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. He recently received a WGA Adapted Screenplay nomination for his script.

“The Paul Selvin Award honors ‘that member whose work best embodies the spirit of the constitutional and civil rights and liberties that are indispensable to the survival of free writers everywhere,’” said WGA West President Howard A. Rodman. “Though we’ve given it since 1989, it might as well have been purpose-built for John McNamara’s ‘Trumbo.’ In shining light on a dark corner of our history, »

Elaine May Honored by Writers Guild of America

19 January 2016 10:31 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Elaine May will receive the Writers Guild of America West’s Laurel Award for Screenwriting Achievement to honor her career and body of work.

May will be honored at the Writers Guild Awards Los Angeles ceremony to be held on Feb. 13 at the Century Plaza.

Elaine May defines the phrase ‘smart and funny,’” said WGA West President Howard A. Rodman. “From the Compass Players to Nichols & May to ‘A New Leaf’ and ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ and Mikey and Nicky, she invented a strain of knowing, painful, ironic humor that quickly became central to what we now think of as comedy. She’s received Oscar nominations and WGA nominations and Writers Guild Awards, all well-deserved; but it is time to recognize, plainly and simply, the debt that all of us owe to her brave, groundbreaking, fiercely intelligent, deeply human, relentlessly honest, scorchingly funny work.”

'House of Cards' Season 4 Trailer Puts America Back on Track

18 January 2016 9:46 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As you very well know by now, 2016 is an election year, but we still have several months until the Republican and Democratic candidates are announced at each party's national convention this summer. Fans will be privy to another political race much sooner, when Season 4 of House of Cards debuts Friday, March 4. Today, Netflix has released a brief teaser for this new season of House of Cards, which shows one of Frank Underwood's (Kevin Spacey) new campaign posters, in a unique location.

The teaser showcases an arrangement of flowers lying on a subway track, which is perhaps a cryptic homage to the Season 2 premiere episode, where Frank Underwood pushed his lover Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara) in front of a train. We then see one of Underwood's new campaign posters, which states that the current President is "putting America back on track." Could this trailer tease that it might be Underwood himself »
