Sundance Exclusive: Photos From ‘Take Me To The River’ Starring Robin Weigert, Josh Hamilton & Logan Miller

21 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For the more adventurous viewer, the Sundance Film Festival’s Next section is where it’s at, and where some of the most creative filmmaking discoveries come from. Last year gave us Ana Lily Amirpour's "A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night" (with the director since setting up her next movie at Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures), Desiree Akhavan's "Appropriate Behavior" and Gillian Robespierre’s “Obvious Child” which became a big indie comedy hit last year, among others. We don’t yet know what will stand out this year, but one strong contender, mentioned in our Most Anticipated Sundance 2015 Film Fest picks, is Matt Sobel’s “Take Me To The River.” A movie about secrets and the layers of misunderstanding and misperceptions between family, “Take Me To The River” is also a little bit like a mysterious waking dream. Starring up-and-comer Logan Miller, Robin Weigert (Sundance drama “Concussion”), Josh Hamilton, »

The Gambler Review

19 January 2015 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Rupert Wyatt

Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Jessica Lange, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams, Leland Orser, Emory Cohen, George Kennedy, Richard Schiff

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 111 minutes

Synopsis:  The death of a beloved grandfather sends a literature professor with a high-stake gambling addiction on a path of self-loathing and destruction as he counter-balances mounting gaming debts with borrowed money from a number of dangerous loan sharks.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’s Rupert Wyatt shows viewers a glimpse into the havoc of an entitled and self-indulgent whiner hell-bent on self-destruction in his latest film The Gambler that stars Mark Wahlberg in the lead role.

Rebooted from James Toback’s original 1974 film starring James Caan, Wyatt’s direction and William Monahan’s screenplay are decidedly different from their predecessors: not only in comparable terms (the protagonist is still a gambling addicted literature professor and disgraced scion of a wealthy »

'West Wing' Cast Reunites for Big Block of Cheese Day

16 January 2015 5:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While it may not be the full-fledged reunion many fans were hoping for, several members of The West Wing reunited for a special video to promote the White House's second annual "Big Block of Cheese Day." For those not familiar with The West Wing, John Spencer's Leo McGarry often spoke about the actual White House tradition, which started in the year 1837 when President Andrew Jackson brought a 1,400-pound block of cheese into the main foyer at the White House, inviting thousands of citizens to carve off slabs of cheddar cheese and discuss the issues of the day. This actual tradition was revived last year by President Barack Obama, which will continue this year with the 2nd Annual Big Block of Cheese Day on January 21.

Murder in the First's Tom Felton: 'I thought my character was an alien'

15 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Murder in the First hits the UK on Friday, and thank goodness, because we've been dying for a whodunit to sink our teeth into in this miserable weather! The show stars Harry Potter's Tom Felton as Erich Blunt, a Silicon Valley wunderkind who gets himself in hot water when detectives link him to two murders. Bit awkward.

But did he or didn't he? We caught up with Tom to get some clues, including why he thought Erich was an alien and why he's not as much of a baddie as you might think...

Murder in the First is your first regular TV show – what was it about this show that made you want to sign up?

"It was tough, to be honest with you. I'm so not used to this idea of signing up to a ten-part series, and essentially we were signing up on the basis of a single episode, »

'Wet Hot American Summer' Netflix Show Adds Tons of New Campers

14 January 2015 1:40 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Camp Firewood, home to the many high jinks of the "Wet Hot American Summer" crew, is getting crowded with all sorts of new characters.

The upcoming Netflix show has added a host of actors to the sprawling original cast, which will include practically all of the stars from the movie, even the really big ones, like Bradley Cooper, "Ant-Man" Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, and Elizabeth Banks.

A lot of the newest additions to the gang are all sort of regular collaborators with David Wain and his "State" crew by one or two degrees of separation, like Michaela Watkins, Lake Bell, Paul Scheer, and Rob Huebel, but there will be a few new faces as well. Josh Charles ("The Good Wife"), John Slattery ("Mad Men"), Jayma Mays ("Glee"), and Richard Schiff ("The West Wing") will also be joining us in the arts and crafts tent.

We're still waiting on a premiere date, »

Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer Just Got Bigger

13 January 2015 8:37 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer series is turning into quite the celeb-packed event. Deadline reports that a slew of guest-starring and recurring characters will pop up in the form of Lake Bell, Josh Charles (as a rival camper), Rob Huebel (a rival professor), Jayma Mays, Randall Park (a librarian in love with Shannon), Paul Scheer (a journalist), Richard Schiff, John Slattery, and Michaela Watkins (a brash New Yorker). The new recruits join the already-large amount of original cast members for the eight-episode series, to be directed by David Wain and written by Wain and Michael Showalter. While the 2001 movie was set on the last day of a fake Jewish summer camp, the Netflix installments reportedly take place on the first day of camp. No other details about the series are available, but rest assured, summer is coming. »
