Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones to receive Santa Barbara's Cinema Vanguard Award

15 December 2014 8:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Santa Barbara Film Festival's Cinema Vanguard Award was created in recognition of actors who have forged their own path, taking artistic risks and making a significant and unique contribution to film. It's makes for as subjective a reading as anything, I suppose, but this year's honorees are a fair enough choice: "The Theory of Everything" stars Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones. "These two actors continue to impress," Sbiff Roger Durling said. "Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones's performances together in 'The Theory of Everything' are nothing short of an astonishing collaboration, recalling the alchemy of Daniel Day-Lewis and Brenda Fricker in 'My Left Foot.'" The accolade will be awarded during a tribute presentation on Thursday, Jan. 29.

'The Night Shift,' 'The Blacklist' & 'Undateable' lead NBC mid-season schedule

12 December 2014 12:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

NBC's semi-successful summer lineup has now become a core part of its winter/spring schedule, with "The Night Shift" and "Undateable" joining a crowded mid-season roster that will include "Allegiance," "The Slap," "A.D.," the return of "The Blacklist," and more. Earlier this month, NBC announced the first part of its mid-season plan with the compressed final season of "Parks and Recreation,"(*) which will be concluding before half of NBC's other mid-season shows even get to premiere. This is the same "drama-heavy mid-season schedule" that was the reason NBC opted to sell Tina Fey's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" to Netflix, rather than try to squeeze it in here. Not counting "Parks" (which, again, NBC considers old business being dealt with as quickly as possible), the network will bring eight shows off the bench in February, March and April, and all but two ("Undateable" and the new "One Big Happy") are dramatic. »

NBC’s other midseason moves include:

* Allegiance, a contemporary espionage-at-home drama in the vein of The Americans — about a young CIA »

Sundance ’15: Baumbach, Fleck/Boden, Pulcini/Berman, Ponsoldt & Another Swanberg Among Premieres

8 December 2014 1:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Last year’s slate of seventeen Narrative Premieres (excluding secret screenings of Boyhood and Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) refreshingly included works from first time filmmakers. I hadn’t seen it coming but Little Accidents and The One I Love were included among the likes of Calvary, Frank and Love is Strange. 2015 will be a true we Swanberg family affair with Joe Swanberg joining wife Kris (Unexpected) with a feature as well in Digging for Fire. James Ponsoldt is officially four for four with Sundance — his latest End of the Tour should be a slam dunk for the Eccles. Sticking to the numbers game… we’ll have a lovely bedfellow pairings of Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s already announced The Stanford Prison Experiment which is going to be mentioned in many loglines alongside Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter - about the Milgram experiment. Among the filmmaking duos we were expecting, we find Mississippi Grind »

Festival director John Cooper noted that while this year’s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City, “they’re not without an independent feel to them, and that’s what I’m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.”

By way of example, Cooper cited “Last Days in the Desert,” a description-resistant foray into father-son territory from Garcia, a director known for his stories about women (“Nine Lives,” “Mother and Child”); John Crowley’s “Brooklyn, »

Kurt Russell Is On Horseback In First Image From Bone Tomahawk

3 November 2014 1:42 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the very first image from cannibal western Bone Tomahawk, Kurt Russell is doing exactly what you’d expect – being damn cool. For first time director S. Craig Zahler’s dusty horror yarn, Russell plays Sheriff Franklin Hunt, who heads up what’s been described as a brutally-violent tale. There’s little doubt about the violence, at least judging by today’s picture debut, which showcases Hunt atop his trusty steed with a rifle strapped on. You know, just in case.

Over the course of the film, Russell leads a group of four men played by Matthew Fox, Patrick Wilson and Richard Jenkins.  The story follows the group as they venture across the plains to rescue a handful of captives who’ve been kidnapped by a bunch of nomadic cannibals. It’s based on an original screenplay by director-writer Zahler, and one that’s garnered an equally impressive supporting roster. »
