Nyff’s Secret Screening: what could it be?

3 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday it was announced that there would be a Special Screening at the 52nd New York Film Festival. Last year, the fest didn’t have a “Secret Screening” like it had done the prior two years, so the announcement has immediately led to some speculation about what title will be playing. There’s a highly likely choice, along with some longer shots that I’ll be discussing momentarily, but I just wanted to quickly state for the record…no, there’s no chance that it’s Star Wars: Episode VII. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, we can move on. Previously, Nyff has debuted early looks at big Academy Award players that year in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo and Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, but this year they’ve done something different in scoring a 2015 release. Depending on how you interpret that, it’s either something literally »

Making the Switch From Documentary to Narrative (and vice versa)

3 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Where feature filmmakers head into a project with a script and a plan, the path for documentarians is unpredictable. They follow real subjects and real issues often in real time — and sometimes for years at a time — and piece everything together as the footage comes along. Sometimes, things fall apart or the subject has to change, such as it with Alex Gibney’s The Armstrong Lie (2013). Though different skill sets go into the distinct film forms, some documentary filmmakers choose to transition to narrative features and vice versa, such as Spike Lee, whose next release will be a documentary titled Go Brasil Go!.

Rob Epstein and Jeff Friedman have made the jump from documentaries to feature films and have said that they intend on continuing to make both types of film. Epstein and Friedman won an Oscar for their first co-directed documentary, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt »

Tiff 2014: How Chris Rock, New Distribution Blood Fueled Film Deals

21 September 2014 10:58 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

As the final acquisition deals roll in on Toronto’s 2014 film festival movies, a couple of overriding themes emerged that bode well for the appetite for indie fare and have sellers smacking their lips for Afm, Sundance, Berlin and beyond. In a fest where Harvey Weinstein left his checkbook home and didn’t make a single splashy deal, I have never seen so many new players make statement buys at a festival than happened in Toronto.

The other intriguing development came on the fest’s biggest deal, when Paramount Pictures swooped into the auction of the Chris Rock-directed comedy Top Five, and blew buyers out of the water by paying $12.5 million for worldwide rights. It was the second straight fest where Paramount did this, after the studio made a precedent-setting pre-buy Cannes deal for the Denis Villeneuve-directed Amy Adams sci-fi film Story Of Your Life.

Ted 2 and Dead Rising add 24's Dennis Haysbert

18 September 2014 10:51 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Once he was President Palmer in 24. Now, Dennis Haysbert is tackling Ted 2 and Dead Rising...

Dennis Haybsert, one time President Palmer in 24, has joined a couple of high profile projects.

Firstly up, he's the latest addition to the cast of Seth MacFarlane's Ted 2. He joins returnees Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis, and other new additions Morgan Freeman, Amanda Seyfried and Jessica Barth. His role in that one is said to be a small one.

Then, he'll also be in the cast for the adaptation of the videogame Dead Rising, that Crackle is behind. That one's being directed by Zach Lipvosky, and will get a digital release in the Us first, before getting a global rollout.

Haysbert's role in both productions is unclear. But if you're looking for a piece of his work to check out while we wait to find out more, he's excellent in the wonderful Far From Heaven. »

Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young' A Hit With Distributors

15 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Noah Baumbach’s newest film While We’re Young will be screened in theaters all around the world following a very well-received reception at Tiff.

While We’re Young stars Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts as a married couple who struggle with the idea that their big moments in life are behind them, and their lackluster life gets a boost when they become intertwined with a younger couple, played by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried. Driver plays Jamie, a young, hipster documentarian, while Stiller’s Josh is a washed up documentary filmmaker, and the film plays on a conflict between the generations..

The film premiered in Toronto to rave reviews, and was quickly bought for Us distribution by A24. A24 reportedly paid around $4 million for the rights, giving While We’re Young one of the highest price tags at Tiff.

Toronto Film Festival 2014: Oscarbait, Hard 'Rock' and the Paradise Garage

15 September 2014 2:06 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Like wild geese in reverse, movie lovers and the press corps head to the Great White North in early September— specifically, to the Toronto International Film Festival, which ended yesterday — for any number of reasons: to catch up with some of the best movies of the previous Sundance and Cannes as the flicks make one last fest-circuit stop; to see stars in their natural habitat, i.e. on a red carpet with microphone shoved in their faces; to stumble across something weird, wild or off-the-world-cinema grid that may not be coming soon, »

Mark Walhberg Is Still Obsessed With Flash Gordon In First Image For Ted 2

15 September 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After his second directorial feature, A Million Ways To Die In The West, was met with disappointing reviews, Seth MacFarlane is poised to return to more financially sound pastures with his upcoming comedy sequel, Ted 2.

With Amanda Seyfried and Morgan Freeman joining the cast, production is beginning to ramp up ahead of the film’s 2015 release date. That aforementioned duo will join Mark Walhberg for the R-rated romp, who recently took to Twitter to upload an image of his character (John Bennett) sitting atop a Flash Gordon-styled motorcycle.

Does this mean that Flash Gordon himself — aka Sam Jones — will have another cameo role for Ted 2? At this stage, we can only hope. Nevertheless, we understand that the sequel will pick up shortly after the events of the first film, »

Oprah, Vanessa Williams, and other stars who got their start in beauty pageants

14 September 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

While Miss America hasn’t bred any headline-stealing celebrities recently, beauty pageants were once a place where future stars got their start. Oprah was Miss Black Tennessee; Halle Berry was Miss Ohio. Vanessa Williams made it all the way to the top, nabbing the Miss America title in 1984.

With Miss America’s 88th annual pageant airing Sunday on ABC at 9 p.m. Et, EW took a look at the most famous Oscar winners and television icons who once won crowns and sashes:

Toronto 2014: 'While We're Young' review

14 September 2014 1:34 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Malaise of various kinds has manifested itself in the work of American director Noah Baumbach. In 2012, the much adored Frances Ha saw the director chronicle the ailing dance career and resultant ennui of an arrested development twenty-something whilst gently ribbing consciously cool New Yorkers. His new picture, While We're Young (2014), explores both professional stagnation and sends up trendy hipster culture through a more traditional mid-life crisis narrative. Providing a further through line between the films is Adam Driver who stars alongside Amanda Seyfried, Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts in a film that talks about getting old and artistic integrity while keeping the laughs plentiful.

While We’re Young | 2014 Tiff Review

13 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Confessions of an Aging Artist: Baumbach Humorously Reflects on Filmmaking Ethics and Middle Age

In some ways the complimentary antithesis to his last work of whimsy, Frances Ha, Noah Baumbach’s latest film, While We’re Young, clamps the cantankerous jaws of midlife crisis around hollow hipster nostalgia, inevitably asking where the importance of authenticity remains in our current media savvy culture and why we often seem to socially settle in and close up with age, ultimately losing touch with the contagious excitement of free flowing youthful creative energy. Likely the creative result of Baumbach’s relationship with his significantly younger significant other, Greta Gerwig, the notoriously bitter filmmaker seems to be grappling with his own gradual aging and inevitable disconnection from youth. Filmmaking may be a medium of immortality, but both he and his documentarian protagonist are beginning to realize that they are feeling their age, no longer relating »

'Ted 2' Photo Reveals Mark Wahlberg's Flash Gordon Motorcycle!

12 September 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Are you ready for more love to be bestowed upon the 1980 Flash Gordon in Ted 2? Returning star Mark Wahlberg has tweeted the first image of himself on set, seated on a custom red Indian Scout motorcycle that has been adorned with the semi-iconic 80s Flash Gordon logo.

Take a look:

Mark Wahlberg (@mark_wahlberg) September 10, 2014

The original Ted was rife with Flash Gordon jokes and references, with Mark Wahlberg's John Bennett being a huge fan of the seminal sci-fi flop. The running gag culminates with a cameo appearance from that film's leading man Sam J. Jones making a rare big screen appearance. The actor is currently not listed as part of the cast for Ted 2, but looking at John's new ride, a surprise return is certainly not out of the question. »

New Ted 2 Image Promises More Flash Gordon

12 September 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

While Seth MacFarlane’s second feature directorial effort, A Million Ways to Die in the West, was a bit of a bust at the box office, it’s likely that his third film will do just fine.  The Family Guy creator is currently in production on the comedy sequel Ted 2, and considering the R-rated first film made over $500 million at the worldwide box office, it’s safe to assume that interest is high for the follow-up.  We still don’t really know much about the pic other than the fact that Mila Kunis has a reduced role while Amanda Seyfried takes on leading lady duties, but a new Ted 2 image has arrived thanks to star Mark Wahlberg, who shared a sneak peek on his Twitter.  The image doesn’t show Ted himself, but fans of the heavy Flash Gordon references from the first film will be pleased to »

Review: While We're Young (Tiff 2014)

Plot: A middle-aged documentarian (Ben Stiller) and his producer wife (Naomi Watts) make friends with a young couple (Adam Driver & Amanda Seyfried) although the generation gap proves to be harder to navigate than they assumed. Review: Now here's a movie that totally took me by surprise. Obviously I wouldn't ever walk into a Noah Baumbach movie expecting anything other than a good movie. His body of work speaks for itself. But, his serio-comic dramas are an acquired taste, with »
