27 July 2015 4:04 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Danny Boyle’s biopic starring Michael Fassbender as the digital age visionary who changed the face of personal computing, telephony and music will screen on October 3 as the centrepiece screening of the 53rd New York Film Festival.

Festival top brass Tweeted the news on Monday in a statement that pointedly did not say the event would mark the film’s world premiere, leaving open the likelihood of an early autumn world premiere.

Two of Boyle’s more recent films – 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire – launched at Telluride before journeying north to Toronto.

Universal has set an October 9 North American release for Steve Jobs, which is based on Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of the Walter Isaacson biography published in 2011.

Nyff director and selection committee chair Kent Jones described the film as “dramatically concentrated, yet beautifully expansive; it’s extremely sharp; it’s wildly enertaining, and the actors just soar.”

Trailer and Poster for Alex Gibney’s Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine

27 July 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

In his signature black turtleneck and blue jeans, shrouded in shadows below a milky apple, Steve Jobs’ image was ubiquitous. But who was the man on the stage? What accounted for the grief of so many across the world when he died?

From Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, Steve Jobs: The Man In The Machine is a critical examination of Jobs who was at once revered as an iconoclastic genius and a barbed-tongued tyrant.

It was announced today that director Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs film will screen for audiences on October 3 at the New York Film Festival. Written by Aaron Sorkin, the film has been chosen as the Centerpiece for the 53rd Nyff. (trailer) Steve Jobs opens in theaters on October 9 and is thought by some to be an Oscar season contender.

Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film to be 'centrepiece' at New York film fest

27 July 2015 2:21 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The biopic, which is written by Aaron Sorkin and stars Michael Fassbender, will be screened at the 53rd edition of the festival on 3 October

Steve Jobs, the upcoming film about the Apple maverick – which stars Michael Fassbender in the titular role and was directed by Danny Boyle – will screen as the centerpiece film for the 53rd New York film festival.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center, which hosts the event, doesn’t list it as a world premiere. Sources say it will bypass the Toronto and Venice film festivals that occur a month beforehand, so a Telluride film festival world premiere seems likely.

Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Heading to New York Film Festival, But is a Toronto Premiere in the Offingc

27 July 2015 1:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tomorrow morning will see the first titles announced for the Toronto Film Festival, a day later Venice will begin to reveal their slate, but the New York Film Festival has already announced a pair of titles. Last week we learned Don Cheadle's Miles Ahead would close the fest that runs from Sept 25 - Oct 11 and today they've announced Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender will play the fest on October 3 as the Centerpiece selection. The interesting thing to note here is that nowhere in the press release announcing the selection does the word "premiere" show up, which leads me to believe Steve Jobs will likely show up either in Toronto, Telluride or Venice before New York with my leanings suggesting either Telluride or Toronto. The fact the announcement arrives today is no coincidence, but we'll have to wait a few more hours to find out. With a screenplay written by Aaron Sorkin, »

"The enjoyment of a work of art, the acceptance of an irresistible illusion, constituting, to my sense, our highest experience of "luxury," the luxury is not greatest, by my consequent measure, when the work asks for as little attention as possible. It is greatest, it is delightfully, divinely great, when we feel the surface, like the thick ice of the skater's pond, bear without cracking the strongest pressure we throw on it. The sound of the crack one may recognise, but never surely to call it a luxury." —Henry James, from The Preface to The Wings of the Dove (1909) "[The critic’s] choice of best salami is a picture backed by studio build-up, agreement amongst his colleagues, a layout in Life mag (which makes it officially reasonable for an American award), and a list of ingredients that anyone’s unsophisticated aunt in Oakland can spot as comprising a distinguished film.

The Emmys are still important, just not as a barometer of quality

17 July 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The nominations for the 67th annual Primetime Emmys were announced recently, and like all nominations in recent memory, it’s just as notable for what was snubbed as for what did end up nominated. With this becoming an increasing trend, many have taken to questioning the importance of the Emmys, and whether they’re relevant in this day and age, especially as shows that can be categorised as hour-long comedies or half-hour dramas are just the latest in a long line of things that have left the Academy scrambling. The Emmys are still relevant, however, but not in the way that it’s usually presented. Rather, the Emmys work best in the current television landscape as a way to point budding television fans in the right direction of where to begin exploring.

Consider, for example, the case of the modern-day individual who discovers they have a deeper appreciation for television than any of their peers. »

2015 Emmy Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

16 July 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Give the Emmys credit for at least trying to keep up with the current explosion of quality television.

This year, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences expanded the Best Comedy and Drama Series categories to seven slots each, and they made other minor changes (online voting!) meant to bring the awards into the 21st century. Still, there's more good TV now than even the Academy can keep up with, so the outrage and shock over the snubs and surprises in this morning's Emmy nominations is inevitable. Here are some of the most astonishing omissions and inclusions.

Best Drama Series

The biggest shocker here is the snub of "Empire," the season's breakout hit. Was it too soapy or guilty-pleasure-ish for the Academy to take seriously? Fellow newbie/Twitter sensation "How to Get Away With Murder" was also snubbed. Golden Globe fave "The Affair" got no love, here or in other major categories. »

Follow the Money with Damian Lewis, Paul Giamatti in Showtime's 'Billions' Trailer

8 July 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Damian Lewis returns to Showtime, and he's got a high-caliber Emmy winner to join him in his last effort, Paul Giamatti. The two actors topline the New York-based drama series "Billions" set to air next year, which just got its first trailer today. This promo looks to toy the line between somewhat interesting and becoming something of a retread of high corporate films and TV shows you've seen all-so-many-times before. The cast is likely going to get people talking more than the plot itself, though, and with dialogue bouncing between entirely generic ("When did it become a crime to succeed in this countryc") and saucily fun ("What's the point of having f**k you money if you never say f**k youc") it's hard to decipher which direction the show with steer. If you notice a bit of an Aaron Sorkin-vibe here, you're not alone and that's probably intentional. »

Ariana Grande Blames #Donutgate on America’s Obesity Crisis

8 July 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Ariana Grande, spiritual heir to Will McAvoy, was videotaped licking doughnuts and saying "I hate America" at a California doughnut shop this weekend, and now, just like a true Aaron Sorkin hero would, she's using her obligatory apology to speak truth to power. In a statement to BuzzFeed, Grande explained that the whole incident was really a protest against our country's child-obesity epidemic. "What I said in a private moment with my friend, who was buying the donuts, was taken out of context, and I am sorry for not using more discretion with my choice of words," Grande said. "As an advocate for healthy eating, food is very important to me and I sometimes get upset by how freely we as Americans consume things without giving any thought to the consequences that it has on our health and society as a whole.

Early 2016 Oscar Predictions: First Look at Best Supporting Actor

8 July 2015 10:46 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Some were wondering where the performers in Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight were when I posted my early Best Actor predictions. Well, it's often tough to tell just who will be considered a lead and who will be considered supporting in a Tarantino feature, and considering this film is a massive ensemble piece it's possible the entire cast will be supporting, or at least that's how I'm looking at it until we know otherwise as I bring you my first look at a field of 26 contenders in the Best Supporting Actor category. Truth be told, it's still too early to really open the doors on the supporting categories as these are quite often the performances we don't see coming. With lead performances it's much easier to predict which ones are more likely to knock our socks off (or, at the very least stand out in the eyes of the »

Steve Wozniak is pleased with Steve Jobs trailer, despite inaccuracies

6 July 2015 1:40 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak said that he is pleased with how the Steve Jobs movie is shaping up, despite pointing out inaccuracies in its trailer.

Wozniak, who is played by comic actor Seth Rogen in the film, told Bloomberg that Michael Fassbender's portrayal of the tech pioneer feels authentic to a point.

He said he "felt a lot of the real Jobs in the trailer, although a bit exaggerated", and admitted that it made him "almost cry remembering it".

Wozniak concedes that "accuracy is second to entertainment in a movie like this", but pointed out that Rogen's portrayal misses the mark in some respects.

"I don't talk that way," he said in reference to a scene in the trailer where Rogen's Wozniak accuses Jobs of taking credit for his co-worker's creations. "I never made comments to the effect that I had credit taken from me."

However, he went on »
