Why Superman and Batman may lose the war to Marvel before they even begin

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"No jokes." Last week was about the fifth time I've heard that there is a mandate at Warner Bros. regarding any of the DC superhero films in development, and it's very simple and direct and to the point. "No jokes." It would seem like a crazy rule to set for an entire series of films. How can you know what the tone is for every story you'll be telling in a series before you've even started telling it? The thing is, DC has taken a few stabs at establishing this larger universe on film, and they've gotten smacked down for everything that hasn't had Batman in it. "Man Of Steel" made money, and I'm certainly not the only person to like the film. I may be one of its more ardent defenders, but I'm not alone. I think you'd have a far harder time finding someone to defend "Green Lantern, »

Night Moves Review

26 August 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Kelly Reichardt.

Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Saarsgard.

Certificate: 15.

Run Time: 112 minutes.

Synopsis:  A trio of eco-terrorists devise a plot to destroy a nearby hydro-dam, a plan which leads to severe repercussions when an unexpected scenario arises.  

Other films in the wheelhouse of eco-terrorism tend to stereotype characters as either anarchists or vegan-hippie types Night Moves skirts both of these and instead has three normal people, who live completely mundane lives, join together to take a stance. Refreshingly their act of blowing-up the dam isn’t glorified in any way; the response of their peers isn’t the adulation that they expect, but rather disdain and confusion.

Reichardt isn’t known for her plot-heavy films, preferring to tell her story through the visuals and sound; this is a tradition she continues here. Night Moves is almost hypnotic, the slow, drawn-out shots pulling you deep into the world of the three characters. »

19 August 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ahh, just what we’ve all been waiting for: Tyrion Lannister and Piper Chapman on stage together! It sounds like a TV lover’s dream mash-up to have Emmy darlings/hopefuls Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) matched together, but dream no more: The duo will topline the Classic Stage Company revival of Ivan Turgenev’s A Month in the Country, beginning previews in January 2015.

The play—part of an already starry Csc 2014/15 season that also includes Peter Sarsgaard in Hamlet and Chris Noth in Doctor Faustus—concerns a young country wife named »

The winners of the 7th Annual EWwy Awards for the Emmy-snubbed were announced live Aug. 18 on EW Radio, and for the second year, the best actress in a drama category boasted the largest margin of victory. In 2013, Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany won with 43 percent of the vote; this year, 61 percent of readers cast their ballots for her. “I think people have been bribed, or it’s been rigged somehow. That’s ridiculous. That’s not right,” a grateful Maslany joked when she phoned in to accept the honor and was reminded that fellow nominees included Sons of Anarchy’s »

Maggie Gyllenhaal Opens Up About Her Intense TV Debut In The Honorable Woman

14 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Maggie Gyllenhaal knows a thing or seven about taking on audacious roles. Since she broke out as James Spader's submissive assistant in the 2002 film Secretary, she's played heroines in major blockbusters (The Dark Knight) and heroin addicts in indie sleepers (Sherrybaby). The Oscar nominee has also shunned the typical Hollywood-celebrity scene, instead living a quiet life in Brooklyn with her husband, actor Peter Sarsgaard, and their two daughters. For her series-television debut, she's chosen The Honorable Woman, an eight-episode SundanceTV drama about the very real, very violent, and very current troubles between Israel and Palestine.

Exclusive Poster: Night Moves starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning & Peter Sarsgaard

31 July 2014 1:38 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Here’s the first look at the poster for the Kelly Reichardt directed movie Night Movies which stars Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning & Peter Sarsgaard. The film is is a tale of suspense and a meditation on the consequences of political extremism. When do legitimate convictions truly demand illegal behaviours? What happens to a person’s political principles when they find their back against the wall? We’ll find out on 29th August when the movie is released in the UK.

You can click the poster below to enlarge. We saw Night Moves last year in Venice and you can see our review of the movie here.

Night Moves is the story of three radical environmentalists coming together to execute the most intense protest of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam—the very source

and symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture theydespise. Harmon (Sarsgaard) is a former Marine, »

14 Reasons You Still Love Garden State

28 July 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been exactly 10 years since the July 28, 2004 release of Garden State, Zach Braff's The Shins-filled passion project. It doesn't matter how old you were or what state of mind you were in when you saw it, the film really hits home. Braff plays Andrew Largeman, a struggling actor who returns home to New Jersey for his mother's funeral and runs into a series of old friends (including Peter Sarsgaard, in a breakout role) and a supremely weird girl named Sam (Natalie Portman). It's moody, it's a little bit pretentious, and the music just makes you feel all the feelings. Ten years later, here's why you - and I - still love Garden State. »

Maggie Gyllenhaal Talks about Self Empowerment

27 July 2014 11:57 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Maggie Gyllenhaal is a busy working mom.and she wouldn't have it any other way.

The actress, 36, covers Modern Luxury's August issue of Angeleno, where she gets candid about her happy home life with husband Peter Sarsgaard, 43, and their two daughters, Ramona, 7, and Gloria, 2.

"Being a parent, you have to sacrifice things, and you have to ask your kids to sacrifice things," says the star, who lives in Brooklyn. "If you are Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, you can have that power to say, 'Yes, I want to do that movie, but I need to wait until July,' but we don't. So both of us have had to sacrifice things we wanted to do many times. But that's what it means to be in a family and be in a relationship."

Over the years, Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard co-starred in two off-Broadway Chekhov adaptations. Was it the couple's goal to star in the same projects? »

Very Good Girls movie review: sex negative

25 July 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An almost complete waste of a talented cast, and all to, apparently, convince teenaged girls that sex isn’t worth the hassle. Say what? I’m “biast” (pro): love Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning; we need to see this premise more

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Very boring girls, more like. I really wanted to like this tale of two best friends, Lilly (Dakota Fanning: Night Moves) and Gerri (Elizabeth Olsen: Godzilla), in New York City about to go off to different colleges and fretting about the fact that they’re both still virgins. I mean, that’s not really a big deal, even if they’ve convinced themselves that they’re the last sexless dorks on the planet, but okay: guy characters get these sorts of movies all the time. And this is as tedious as most of the guy versions. »

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard Promote Peace at ‘The Honorable Woman’ Premiere

24 July 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the conflict in Gaza rages in real life, SundanceTV’s timely miniseries “The Honorable Woman,” which follows an British-Israeli billionaire using her family business to promote reconciliation between Israel and Palestine, premiered the first episode in Gotham July 23.

At the screening hosted by The Cinema Society and Tod’s at The Crosby Hotel, SundanceTV prexy Sarah Barnett hoped that the mini would encourage resolution. “I don’t think any of us would claim that the show is in any way commenting on the situation in the Middle East that tragically has in the last few weeks become escalated, but I do think that if the piece says anything about human beings and about the conflict in the region, I think it is that people have to keep sitting at the negotiating table, however much pain there or however much people are trying to resolve very difficult things — you have »
