First look at Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal

26 July 2016 12:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment Weekly has debuted three first look images from director Tom Ford’s upcoming thriller Nocturnal Animals featuring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal; check them out here…

Based on the 1993 novel Tony and Susan by Austin Wright, Nocturnal Animals is “a “story inside a story,” in which the first part follows a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The second element follows the actual manuscript itself, ‘Nocturnal Animals’, and revolves around a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly. It also continues to follow the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.

Nocturnal Animals is set for release on November 4th in the UK and on December 9th in the States and features a cast that also includes Michael Shannon, Isla Fisher, Armie Hammer, »

A Domestic Feud Brews In First Peek At Tom Ford Thriller Nocturnal Animals

25 July 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Picture the scene: A happily-married woman, Susan (Amy Adams), inadvertently opens up the door to her past upon reading a manuscript titled Nocturnal Animals.

Hailing from an ex-husband (Jake Gyllenhaal) that she severed contact with some seven years ago, it’s the content of said script that really causes Susan’s skin to crawl, chronicling a family under siege by hoodlums on the highway late at night. The question then becomes, is it a harbinger of things to come?

That is, essentially, the elevator pitch to Nocturnal Animals, Tom Ford’s latest feature and the director’s first since A Single Man back in 2009. Pegged to land in the awards-friendly corridor of November, Entertainment Weekly has today peeled back the curtain on that domestic feud, as Gyllenhaal has a run-in with the law and Amy Adams, housed up safely in her home, ponders the unnerving situation at hand. »

Exclusive First Look at Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams in Tom Ford's New Thriller Nocturnal Animals

25 July 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Six years ago, critics and audiences were taken completely by surprise by A Single Man. The sensitive, stylish drama, adapted from a 1964 novel by Christopher Isherwood, was about one day in the life of a dapper college professor (Colin Firth) who has decided to kill himself rather than live with the grief of his lover's death. For his poignant performance, Firth was nominated for an Academy Award. He lost - but when Firth scored the Best Actor Oscar the next year for The King's Speech, he took a moment to acknowledge A Single Man's first-time director from the podium: "And »

First Look at Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal

25 July 2016 9:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a seven-year gap, fashion designer and director Tom Ford is following up the success of his directorial debut A Single Man with Nocturnal Animals, which has just been given a first look. The thriller follows an art gallery owner, Susan Morrow (Amy Adams), who reads deeply (perhaps too deeply) into the words of her ex-husband’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) latest novel, one she believes is a threat and tool of revenge against her. Paranoia and fear ensue as Susan must discover whether or not words are just words.

Ford told EW that, in penning the adaptation of Austin Wright‘s Tony and Susan, he added much to Adams’ character — including by casting lookalike Isla Fisher as her story-within-the-story double. Ford is a man certainly interested in aesthetics, and Animals is lensed by Seamus McGarvey, whose back catalogue includes GodzillaAtonement, and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

The 50 Best Sci-Fi Films of the 21st Century Thus Far

19 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a medium founded on expanding one’s imagination and perception of reality, no genre does it better than science fiction. We’ve come a long way from the days when Georges Méliès took us to the moon, for today’s filmmakers look far beyond our universe and into the deepest corners of our soul to reflect the current society.

With the latest entry in the Star Trek franchise arriving in theaters this week, we’ve set out to reflect on the millennium’s sci-fi films that have most excelled. To note: we only stuck with feature-length works of 60 minutes or longer and, to make room for a few more titles, our definition of “the 21st century” stretched to include 2000.

Check out our top 50 below and let us know your favorites in the comments. We’ve also put the list on Letterboxd to keep track of how many you’ve seen. »

“Loving” announces itself as an awards player with a great Trailer

18 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Last week, we got two big Oscar friendly Trailers. The one I’m going to be talking about today is Loving, coming to us from filmmaker Jeff Nichols. He’s a writer/director who has been growing in stature the last few years, though this is his first overt play at awards. From the look of Loving, it’s a true life civil rights drama/biopic that should have real appeal across the board, and undoubtedly will be of interest to the Academy and its voters. Reviews were very strong out of the Cannes Film Festival and this Trailer debut was excellent as well. You’ll see it below, but first…let’s discuss it a bit. The film is a biopic of the Loving family, Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred (Ruth Negga). An interracial couple living in the south in the 1950’s, they run into even more bigotry when they decide to get married. »

18 July 2016 8:08 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Elvis & Nixon” captures the unlikely meeting two of the biggest cultural figures of their time — a rock ‘n’ roll legend and the President of the United States. On a December morning in 1970, Elvis Presley (Michael Shannon), the King himself, showed up at the front gate of The White House to request a meeting with President Richard Nixon (Kevin Spacey) to make him an undercover agent in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. What follows is a delightful, revealing meeting between two powerful figures, forever immortalized in the single most requested photograph in the National Archives. Watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip below featuring Michael Shannon, Kevin Spacey, Johnny Knoxville, and more talk about bringing the story to life.

Amazon has just released the first set of images from its new original series, which is currently on location in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Clarkson, Hammond and May co-presented the highly popular BBC series for more than a decade until their joint departure last year. This new venture continues in a similar vein, with the three hosts traveling the world and driving around in various exotic locales. Naming the show proved difficult, with “Gear Knob” being floated as a possible title before the three eventually settled on “The Grand Tour.”

‘Coming Through The Rye’ Exclusive Clip: An Alienated Teen Leaves Boarding School To Find J.D. Salinger

14 July 2016 10:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Set in 1969, “Coming Through The Rye” follows 16-year-old Jamie Schwartz (Alex Wolff), an outcast at his new boarding school, and an acolyte of author J.D. Salinger. Schwartz finds comfort and solace in Salinger’s “The Catcher in the Rye,” and deeply identifies with protagonist Holden Caulfield. Believing he’s destined to play the character, Schwartz adapts the novel into a play, but wishes to seek Salinger’s approval before staging it. He runs away from his school and picks up Deedee Gorlin (Stefania Owen), a quirky townie, to help him search for the reclusive author, played by Oscar-winner Chris Cooper. Along the way, Schwartz comes of age, and begins a journey of first love, sexual awakening, and discovering the meaning and purpose of one’s own life. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below, ahead of the 65th anniversary of “The Catcher in the Rye” on July 16th.

First trailer for Jeff Nichols’ upcoming drama Loving starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga

13 July 2016 1:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few months ago we brought you the first clip for writer-director Jeff Nichols’ upcoming drama Loving starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga [check it out here]. Now after months of teasing film fans with an image [here] and a poster [here], Focus Features has officially released a trailer for the film, which also stars Michael Shannon (a popular collaborator of Nichols), Marton Csokas, Bill CampNick Kroll, Terri Abney, Alano Miller, and Jon Bass. Watch it below…

Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed in the film by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who fell in love and were married in 1958.

The couple had grown up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. »

Jeff Nichols’ Cannes Hit Loving Unveils Poignant First Trailer

12 July 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

How does one follow up one of the best cinematic surprises of the year? That’s the question looming over Midnight Special director Jeff Nichols, who is poised to debut his second feature film of 2016 in the form of Loving.

Drawing praise following its premiere at Cannes Film Festival earlier in the year (our review), Nichols’ latest creative venture is a civil rights drama at its core, chronicling the harrowing journey of interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving – played here by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga, respectively.

Based on a true story, the Loving drama went on to become a landmark case in the United States Supreme Court, and it’ll be fascinating to see how Nichols – who, remember, is coming off an old-school science fiction flick – handles the radical shift to realism.

Loving Gets A New Movie Trailer

The film follows the courtship and marriage of Mildred Jeter, a black woman, and Richard Loving, a white man. They are arrested and sentenced to prison in Virginia in 1958, because their interracial marriage violates the state’s anti-miscegenation laws. Exiled to Washington DC, they sue the state of Virginia in a series of proceedings leading to the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision in Loving v. Virginia, which holds that laws prohibiting interracial marriage are unconstitutional. The new film stars Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga, Martin Csokas, Nick Kroll, and Michael Shannon. Written and Directed by Jeff Nichols. “Loving” hits theaters on November 4.

After the Spielberg-styled sci-fi throwback Midnight Special this past spring, hot-streak filmmaker Jeff Nichols shifts gears to romance and social commentary with the upcoming Loving, set for release November 4th. 

The handsomely mounted period piece dramatizes the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple living in Virginia during the 1950s, during which racist miscegenation laws forbade relationships between blacks and white from being recognized by the state. The Lovings flouted the laws and got a marriage license in Washington, D.C., only to be arrested upon their return to their home state. »
