The award season is now in full swing. This morning, SAG-aftra announced the nominees for the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Nominations and wins at these awards often add to one’s Oscar hopes, so it’s always interesting to see which projects are getting the most attention.
One neat personal note here is that, since I’ve been a card-carrying member of the Screen Actors Guild for 7 years, I get to cast my votes on all of these. Looking forward to that.

What's It About? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Vin Diesel, and the late Paul Walker reunite with Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Jordana Brewster, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, and future Wonder Woman Gal Gadot to put the pedal to the medal in the sixth iteration of this car-racing series. Can our favorite speed freaks outwit and outdrive a gang of drivers led by a British baddie named Shaw (Luke Evans)?
Why We're In: Besides the fact that some of the DVD earnings will be donated to the late Paul Walker's charity Reach Out Worldwide, this is the perfect guilty-pleasure action film to pop on with a bunch of friends. It's worth it for the runway scene alone.

The Sundance Film Festival made their final feature film line-ups with the Premieres category announcements. Sixteen films with huge name talent, returnee filmmakers and plenty of buyer interest/and future all night wheeling, and dealing.
After breaking out in Park City with The Guard, John Michael McDonagh returns (alongside actor Brendan Gleeson) the much anticipated Calvary. Mike Cahill (alongside actress Brit Marling) returns with more sci-fi terrain with, I Origins. Jake Paltrow who managed to sink instead of swim with The Good Night, was again surfaces with Young Ones. And this was unexpected, but Jordan Vogt-Roberts makes it back to back years with Toy’s House (The Kings of Summer) re-teams with Nick Offerman for Nick Offerman: American Ham (which is more concert-comedy film than narrative feature).

For director of programming Trevor Groth, the flowering of international auteur talent in Premieres is the result of a considered effort that began shortly after he and fest director John Cooper launched their first edition in 2010. While their immediate focus was on beefing up the dramatic competition as a showcase for new filmmakers, broader international outreach across all sections of the festival became a similar priority.
“I think we’ve really built the dramatic competition up in a way that it’s firing at the level we always hoped it would, »

Ever since its debut at Telluride and Tiff, Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave has been gaining critical acclaim left, right, and centre.
The film was long one of the most anticipated of the year, with McQueen’s making a return behind the camera following 2011’s acclaimed (and Oscar-snubbed) Shame.
Whilst it’s now playing in Us cinemas, UK audiences will have to wait until January for its arrival, and eOne has begun gearing up the momentum towards its release with a new TV spot for our shores.
12 Years A Slave is based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, »

Having fast become one of the leading lights of his generation of actors, Michael Fassbender adds Ridley Scott’s The Counsellor to an impressive string of roles in films as diverse as they are popular and critically acclaimed. He broke through in Zack Snyder’s 2006 blockbuster 300 – his first feature film role – and cemented his talent in the indie one-two punch of Steve McQueen’s Hunger in 2008 and Andrea Arnold’s Fish Tank in 2009.
Subsequently, Fassbender has worked with directors such as Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds), David Cronenberg (A Dangerous Method) and Steven Soderbergh (Haywire). His first collaboration with Ridley Scott, Prometheus, grossed more than $400m at the worldwide box-office.
Fassbender’s talents are much in demand, and in 2013 and beyond he will be seen in Steve McQueen’s third film, 12 Years a Slave, alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor, Brad Pitt and Benedict Cumberbatch; in Lenny Abrahamson’s Frank, »

I have no idea why this trailer for Killing Them Softly was banned, but Annapurna Pictures just tweeted it out and considering it was one of my absolute favorites of last year and the fact director Andrew Dominik is receiving some much deserved attention as of late, not only for this film but also for the resurgence of The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, I felt I must share it. amz asin="B009AMALBM" size="small"If you have yet to see Killing Them Softly, first off "shame", secondly it's an adaptation of George V. Higgins' novel following professional enforcer, Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt), who investigates a heist that occurs during a high stakes, mob-protected, poker game. The film also features Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, James Gandolfini, Vincent Curatola, Max Casella, Sam Shepard and Bella Heathcote.

Fox Searchlight has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for director Steve McQueen’s immensely powerful drama 12 Years a Slave, this time focusing on the film’s fantastic ensemble cast.
