Watch Don Cheadle in Jazzy Trailer for Miles Davis Biopic 'Miles Ahead'

2 February 2016 1:06 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Nearly 10 years had passed since Miles Davis' nephew Vince Wilburn declared that Don Cheadle was the only actor who could play the late jazz legend, but it wasn't until Tuesday — when Sony Pictures Classics dropped the first trailer for Miles Ahead — that the rest of the world got a firsthand look at what Wilburn had in mind. Cheadle didn't merely agree to star in the movie, but co-wrote and directed the film, with the initial peek promising a biopic every bit as reckless and singular as its subject. As »

'Miles Ahead' Trailer Stars Don Cheadle as Jazz Legend Miles Davis

2 February 2016 12:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The life of legendary musician Miles Davis will be told on the big screen later this year in the biopic entitled Miles Ahead, which debuted at the 2015 New York Film Festival and is set for theatrical release on April 1. Today we have the first trailer for this upcoming drama, starring Don Cheadle as the musical icon, with the actor also making his directorial debut. The actor/director also spoke with Entertainment Weekly, shedding new light on this unique story.

10 years ago, when Miles Davis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the musician's nephew Vince Wilburn told reporters that he thought Don Cheadle was the perfect actor to play his uncle. The actor admitted that he wasn't pursuing the role at that time, but at first, he was only interested in starring, not directing. The actor/filmmaker revealed how he came around to making his directorial debut on Miles Ahead. »

Watch: First Full Trailer for 'Miles Ahead' Biopic Starring Don Cheadle

2 February 2016 10:51 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If you gunna tell a story... come with some attitude, man!" Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled the first official trailer for Don Cheadle's new film Miles Ahead, which already played the New York Film Festival and Sundance Film Festival so far. Don Cheadle stars as legendary jazz musician Miles Davis, with a cast including Keith Stanfield, Michael Stuhlbarg, Emayatzy Corinealdi and Ewan McGregor. This trailer is all over the place, with odd cuts and awkward scenes, but I think that's the point. Like jazz, it has no particular rhyme or reason, and jumps all over. Reviews for the film say that Cheadle "buries himself in the character. His version of Davis is a creature of paranoia and understated frustration..." Give it a watch. Here's the first official trailer for Don Cheadle's Miles Ahead, originally embedded from EW.com: Unlike most biopics, Miles Ahead focuses on just a few »

Don Cheadle Inhabits Miles Davis in Trailer for Directorial Debut ‘Miles Ahead’

2 February 2016 10:22 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Some eyebrows were raised when the New York Film Festival decided to close out a stellar year with Miles Ahead, an unseen-by-almost-any Miles Davis biopic that marks the directorial debut of Don Cheadle. That confusion continued once people saw the movie: what was touted in the festival notes as “truly, one of the finest films ever made about the life of an artist” played to many, myself included, as a half-interesting, half-perfunctory telling that, if you’ll allow me, knew much of the music and little of the rhythm.

Given the generally lukewarm response, it’s of little surprise that Sony Pictures Classics won’t hold the picture over for next year’s awards consideration, instead slotting it for an April 1 release. (April 1… Nyff’s ringing endorsement… you create the joke.) The first preview is a decent indication of what’s coming, and so I believe it’s safe to say that, »

See Don Cheadle As Jazz Legend Miles Davis In This 'Miles Ahead' Trailer

2 February 2016 7:42 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

When it was announced that Don Cheadle would be playing jazz legend Miles Davis, it was one of those things that was almost a foregone conclusion. In fact, he'd been picked for the role before he even knew about Miles Ahead- the upcoming film about a turbulent period in the musician's life. Who had chosen him? Davis's nephew, Vince Wilburn, at the 2006 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction of his uncle. He said Cheadle was the man to do it.

And, from the looks of this new trailer, Wilburn may have been right on the money. You can check it out right here:

Cheadle also co-wrote and directed Miles Ahead, which is set to be released in April. The film's cast also includes Ewan McGregor, Keith Stanfield, and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Sam Raimi Circles ‘A Prophet,’ Greta Gerwig and Marjane Satrapi Set Casts for Directorial Efforts, and More

25 January 2016 9:37 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It was inevitable that Hollywood would remake Jacques Audiard’s stylish gangster classic A Prophet, but at least there’s considerable talent gathering behind the scenes. It’s been reported that famed crime novelist and The Drop scribe Dennis Lehane will pen the script, while Sam Raimi has eyed the director’s chair. Raimi’s late filmography has been spotty, but his last foray into crime, A Simple Plan, fit like a glove. Audiard’s original film follows a man in prison who’s taken under the tutelage of a crime boss. [Deadline]

After co-writing credits on Noah Baumbach efforts Frances Ha and Mistress America, Greta Gerwig is finally stepping behind the camera herself. Gerwig will direct fellow “it girl” and Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan in Lady Bird. The film will follow a high school senior spending her last year at home in Sacramento. [Deadline]

Review: Don Cheadle hits lots of sweet notes in the not-really-a-biopic 'Miles Ahead'

24 January 2016 2:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's pretty clear where I got the first name of my first son, Toshiro, and he's well aware of the legacy of the artist who inspired that name. While he hasn't seen Seven Samurai yet, he knows who Toshiro Mifune was and that he is an actor I hold in very high regard. What's less immediately clear is that my younger son is also named after one of my artistic heroes, because it's his middle name. He is Allen Miles McWeeny, and sure enough, he is named after one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, a towering figure whose music has meant more to me than I can ever fully express. Don Cheadle must share some of that same reverence for Miles Davis, and it's certainly clear from his new film as a star and as a writer/director that he embraces the full complexity of Miles, flaws and all. »

'Doctor Strange' Gets 'The Martian' Star as Trusty Sidekick

21 January 2016 9:57 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even though Doctor Strange has been filming since November, it's never too late to add a new cast member. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that The Martian star Benedict Wong has signed on to play the Sorcerer Supreme's aptly-named sidekick, Wong. It isn't known if he just recently joined the cast, or if he was part of the production when filming started last year.

Wong has a long history in the Marvel Comics, making his debut in in 1963's "Strange Tales" #110. In the comics, Wong was a disciple of the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) who was sent to America to assist Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) during his journey of learning the mystical arts. The character also performs healing duties and assists with occult matters. One of his primary duties is looking after the Doctor's body while he is astral projecting into other planes of existence.

21 January 2016 5:23 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

A good portion of Doctor Strange’s supporting cast from the comics will appear in his movie this November. Chiwetel Ejiofor is playing fellow sorcerer Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton is playing Strange’s mentor The Ancient One, and Michael Stuhlbarg is playing Strange’s scientist rival Nicodemus West (Rachel McAdams and Mads Mikkelsen’s characters haven’t been revealed yet).

While no details were provided about his specific role in the movie, like his comic book counterpart, the McU’s Wong will help Strange with his sorcery and everyday affairs, including, as the report notes, performing healing duties, assisting in »
