Best Actress - April Foolish Oscar Predix

21 April 2017 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

We always save the best category for last.

The April Foolish Oscar predictions are officially complete with the Best Actress chart which has just gone up. So many talent women. So much luscious actressing to come. We cannot wait to see these performances, wherever they happen to fall on the chart. Predictions are for fun and do not indicate who we're rooting for ever -- we try not to root for anything without actually seeing the films because "may the best performance win!" and we don't know what that will be yet, now do we? This year the April Foolish crystal ball says "all previous nominees" but that's largely because it does not appear to be a year where many women who aren't previous nominees have managed to land leading roles. But we shall see. 

Answer me these questions three:

1. Which actress's double feature are you most excited to see? »

Guillermo Del Toro's Shape of Water Gets a Release Date and Synopsis

19 April 2017 12:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Guillermo Del Toro is a very beloved director, but he hasn't quite transitioned into the award-winning, Oscar-worthy filmmaker yet. That could be changing later this year. His next movie, The Shape of Water, has just been given a very awards-friendly release date that seems to imply the studio thinks that this movie could be a contender this year. Additionally, the studio has released a full synopsis for the movie, which gives us a much better idea of what we can expect when the movie finally hits theaters this December.

Fox Searchlight will be distributing The Shape of Water, which will be taking place in America during the Cold War. The last time Guillermo Del Toro directed a period drama was back when he made Pan's Labyrinth, and that remains one of his most beloved and critically acclaimed features. So that bodes well for his upcoming movie. Here is the official »

Newswire: Guillermo del Toro’s next film is coming in December

19 April 2017 11:29 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Guillermo Del Toro has had to walk away from a couple of projects in recent years, so it’s a bit of a relief to get some news on a film—with Del Toro at the helm—that will see the theater light of day. Deadline reports the filmmaker’s The Shape Of Water has just caught a December 8 release date. Starring Del Toro’s scaly stalwart Doug Jones, The Shape Of Water is described as “an otherworldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963.” Sally Hawkins costars as a lonely employee at a high-security government laboratory, who stumbles upon a “secret classified experiment” with her coworker, who will be played by Octavia Spencer. Jones will play the fish man who is being held at the facility, and with whom Hawkins’ character will fall in love.

Michael Shannon was cast in the film ...

Guillermo Del Toro’s Cold War Fantasy Flick The Shape Of Water Lands December Release Date

19 April 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro’s long-brewing Cold War fantasy flick, now has a release date to call its own: December 8th, 2017.

That places it smack bang in the middle of Hollywood’s annual awards season, and though it’s far too soon to gauge the movie’s Oscar credentials, an early December release stands as an exciting vote of confidence from Fox Searchlight. Pitched as an “otherworldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963,” The Shape of Water has quietly assembled an all-star cast over the past few months, one which includes Sally Hawkins, Midnight Special‘s Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Lauren Lee Smith, Michael Stuhlbarg, Hidden Figures star Octavia Spencer and Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth), a frequent del Toro collaborator who is said to be on board as the inexplicable “aquatic man.”

A Year After ‘Birth of a Nation,’ Fox Searchlight Lines Up Oscar Season Players

19 April 2017 11:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One year ago, Fox Searchlight Pictures sat primed for awards season with a sure-fire contender in Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation.” On the heels of a pricey pick-up at the Sundance Film Festival, riding the ongoing wave of a diversity rally cry, the distributor that had claimed the best picture trophy two out of the previous three years was poised to dominate.

To say the least, none of that panned out as planned. And there was little else remaining in the quiver. Searchlight was ultimately left with a Toronto acquisition (Pablo Larrain’s “Jackie”) and an uncharacteristically modest showing on the circuit.

But the mini-major has been busy lining up its players for a 2017 comeback. Over the last several weeks, Searchlight has set release dates for three films in the thick of the season: “Battle of the Sexes,” from “Little Miss Sunshine” duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, »

16 April 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The slow specialty box office is picking up. “The Lost City of Z” (Bleecker Street) opened just below the numbers posted last week by “Colossal” (Neon) and “Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer” (Sony Pictures Classics) also opened to over $20,000.

Sony Classics has finally revealed an official Us trailer for the indie biopic Maudie, telling the story of famed Nova Scotia folk painter Maud "Maudie" Lewis.
