Venice Film Festival Lineup Announced; Includes Birdman And Manglehorn

24 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This morning in Rome, Biennale president Paolo Baratta and Venice Film Festival chief Alberto Barbera unveiled the lineup for the 71st Venice Film Festival, which features some extraordinarily exciting titles and intriguingly under-the-radar picks.

Twenty films will be competing in the main competition, 19 of which are world premieres with one international premiere out of the lot. Out of all the titles at Venice this year, Birdman, which stars Michael Keaton and features a star-studded cast including Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Amy Ryan, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts, is undoubtedly the title with the most chance of gaining Oscar attention this year after making the rounds on the festival circuit (it’s heading to the Toronto International Film Festival next).

Also anticipated are Manglehorn, a collaboration between Prince Avalanche helmer David Gordon Green and Al Pacino, and Andrew Niccol’s Good Kill, with Ethan Hawke, Bruce Greenwood, January Jones and Zoe Kravitz. »

The 2014 Venice Film Festival Complete Lineup

24 July 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This morning came the announcement of the 2014 Venice Film Festival lineup and we already knew Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman would serve as the opening night film and for the most part a lot of the more recognizable entries are those we already discussed as part of the Toronto Film Festival lineup. This includes Ramin Bahrani's 99 Homes, David Gordon Green's Manglehorn starring Al Pacino, Abel Ferrera's Pasolini, Barry Levinson's The Humbling and Andrew Niccol's The Good Kill. There are, however, some titles worthy of note such as the latest film from The Act of Killing director Joshua Oppenheimer, The Lord of Silence, Fatih Akin's The Cut, She's Funny that Way from Peter Bogdanovich, Lisa Cholodenko's Olive Kitteredge and a new film from James Franco in The Sound and the Fury based on Faulkner's novel. Joe Dante shows up with a new horror-comedy in Burying the Ex, »

24 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Venice Film Festival’s Horizons section (aka Orizzonti) is logically comparable to Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section. As well as including about a dozen shorts in the programme (Ramin Bahrani is among those listed with an eight minuter called Life You Up), this year’s  pack of seventeen unquestionably highlighted by the presence of Moshen Makhmalbaf’s The President, also includes the much anticipated sophomore film by Duane Hopkins’ youth portrait Bypass (see pic above – youth portrait), the Safdie Bros.’ Heaven Knows What – a docu-fiction hybrid starring Caleb Landry Jone and newcomer Arielle Holmes, the latest from frenzied pace working Hong Sangsoo (Hill Of Freedom) and a new item from actress Katherine Heigl (who knows this might actually be good) starring in Ami Canaan Mann’s Your Right Mind, about a modern day train hopper fighting to be a successful musician and a single mom battling to maintain custody »

Venice Film Festival Reveals Lineup For Its 71st Edition

24 July 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Venice topper Alberto Barbera has unveiled a promising lineup of fresh fare from around the world set to unspool at the 71st Venice Film Festival, with a rigorous focus on quality, discovery and diversity, likely to reveal some under-the-radar awards-season contenders and also bolster the Lido’s status as a global launching pad for prime auteur pics.

The robust U.S. contingent, largely from the indies, comprises new works from David Gordon Green, Andrew Niccol, Peter Bogdanovich, Lisa Cholodenko, Joe Dante, James Franco, Barry Levinson, Michael Almereyda, and Ami Canaan Mann.

As is customary at Venice, new works from name global auteurs, including Fatih Akin, Xavier Beauvois, Abel Ferrara, Andrei Konchalovsky, Shinya Tsukamoto, Amos Gitai, and Moshen Makhmalbaf, will play alongside pics by lesser-known helmers.

At a packed presser at Rome’s Hotel St.Regis Venice topper Alberto Barbera noted that “our job is more complex, more painful, because »

5 Potential Fault in Our Stars Sequels

11 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

What’s better than one successful movie adaptation of a Ya book? All together now: four movies based on a Ya book. In any other Ya scenario, the box office success of Fault in Our Stars — $48 million on its opening weekend — would surely guarantee an onslaught of sequels, but Fault is not a series; there are no more books to adapt. So Vulture has dreamed up five possible spinoffs and sequels for the good people in Hollywood. We would watch all of these! Especially the ghost love triangle.Augustus Waters: The PrequelBefore he was Hazel’s annoyingly perfect boyfriend with one leg and minimal interior life, Augustus Waters was ... another girl’s annoyingly perfect boyfriend. In this prequel, Gus and Caroline fall in love, then her brain tumor flares up and she becomes a total bitch until she dies on him. (This is all from the book! We’re not »

Mickey Rooney, Hollywood Legend, Dies At 93

6 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Legendary actor Mickey Rooney died Sunday in Los Angeles, Calif. He was 93.

Mickey Rooney Dies

The Brooklyn-born Rooney, who got his first acting gig at just 17 months old, is best known for the series of Andy Hardy films that came out in the 1930s. Starring alongside Judy Garland, Rooney became the most bankable actor throughout the Depression-era. Among the Andy Hardy films were, Love Finds Andy Hardy, Andy Hardy Gets Spring Fever, Andy Hardy Meets Debutante and Love Laughs at Andy Hardy.

Following his incredible success at such a young age, Rooney struggled to remain a major player in Hollywood as an adult. In the 50s, there was the short-lived TV series, The Mickey Rooney Show that lasted just two years in which he played Mickey Mulligan. He had another TV vehicle in the 60s titled simply Mickey that lasted for 16 episodes.

Rooney went on to get minor parts in films, »

So Long Psych: Series Finale Review

27 March 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 

Shawn and Gus wrapped up their last crime in Santa Barbara last night in the series finale of Psych. Did the series wrap up with a bang or a whimper? Read our review to find out.

 

It’s appropriately odd that the best series finale to come along in quite a while was not meant to be a series ending episode at all. Last night’s Psych episode “The Breakup” was written to be the eighth season closer, but the word that Psych wouldn’t be renewed came after filming on year eight had wrapped up, so the season finale became the series finale…and it was an excellent one! Longtime Psych fans have little to complain about because Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dule Hill) went out in style.

Many fans were no doubt worried that the show’s ending wouldn’t live up to the show’s legacy, »

'Psych' series finale postmortem: James Roday on landing that dream guest star and the ending

27 March 2014 12:39 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched Psych’s series finale, stop reading now. James Roday spoke to EW about the “big get” and that pitch-perfect ending.

The hour revolved around Shawn (Roday) trying to find a way to break the news to best friend Gus (Dulé Hill) that he was leaving him and Santa Barbara to go to San Francisco to be with Juliet (Maggie Lawson). In the end, he did it by recording a message on DVD. If you teared up when it first became clear that Gus was watching a disc, you’re not alone. Another great »

'Psych' series finale: James Roday says 'The Mentalist' will 'keep us in the zeitgeist'

26 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

In an upscale chain restaurant on a busy road in Manhattan Beach, Calif., not far from the production offices of the USA Network comedy-drama "Psych," and roughly 1,286 miles from the show's filming location in Vancouver, Canada, star James Roday and series executive producer Steve Franks get together for lunch with Zap2it to discuss not staying too long at the party.

"For a lot of people," quips Franks, "our second episode was too long at the party."

Obviously not for everyone, because the show airs it eighth-season, and series finale on Wednesday, March 26, followed by the "Psych After Show," a one-hour special hosted by Kevin Pereira ("Attack of the Show") and featuring a Q&A with the cast and Franks, in front of a live studio audience in Los Angeles.

For those who need to go do some binge viewing in a hurry, "Psych" features Roday (today sporting a full »

'Psych' series finale: It was 'always about' the Shawn and Gus bromance

24 March 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When USA's detective series "Psych" closes up shop after eight seasons on Wednesday, Mar. 26, one of TV's most enduring best-friend relationships disappears with it.

In a TV landscape littered with human interactions that are confrontational, violent, sexual or all of the above, stories focusing on true platonic friendship are increasingly rare. And even where they exist, people often feel the need to embellish, as if calling a strong, loyal friendship a "bromance" somehow makes it more interesting.

In "Psych," faux-psychic investigator Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his faithful partner, pharmaceutical representative Burton "Gus" Guster (Dule Hill), have been friends since boyhood.

"What gave us a lot of the latitude that we had," says Roday, sitting at lunch with Zap2it, in the company of series creator Steve Franks, "was the seed of childhood best friends. It's one of the purest, most enduring relationships that you'll have in your life, when »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #20. Fabrice Du Welz’s Alleluia

6 March 2014 5:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Alleluia

Director: Fabrice Du Welz

Writers: Fabrice Du Welz

Producer: Clément Miserez, Vincent Tavier, Matthieu Warter

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Laurent Lucas, Lola Duenas, Helena Noguerra

While he hasn’t released anything since 2008’s sorely underrated Vinyan, Belgian director Fabrice Du Welz has been busy. His first film since then, the Joey Starr led action thriller Colt 45, wrapped some time ago, and while we thought we’d see this released somewhere in 2013, it looks like 2014 should usher it into theaters. But even more exciting is that Welz is in post-production with Alleluia, which is meant to be the second chapter in his Ardennes trilogy, an opus kicked off by his delectably bizarre debut, 2004’s The Ordeal. This latest sees him reteam with everyone’s favorite star of weirdo French films, Laurent Lucas (who starred in The Ordeal), co-written and produced by Vincent Tavier, the man who wrote »

'Psych' Season 8: Marlowe and Lassiter have their baby in 'Shawn and Gus Truck Things Up'

5 March 2014 7:30 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Once the beginning of "Psych's" final season dropped the bombshell that Det. Lassiter (now Chief Lassiter!) was going to be a father, we were hoping the season would get to the episode where the baby comes -- and it did, with "Shawn and Gus Truck Things Up."

In grand "Psych" tradition, the birth was hilariously absurd, with the gang careening through the streets of Santa Barbara in a food truck en route to the hospital with Henry delivering Marlowe's baby, Gus passed out from the sight and Shawn trying to be helpful but mostly just screaming a lot.

It's also perfect and adorable that Lassiter and Marlowe bought Henry's house and little Lily Nora is going to grow up in Shawn's room. Awww.

Best Lines:

Gus: "Do not go all Sean Penn in 'Mystic River' on me."

Shawn: "Seems like just yesterday."

Gus: "It was yesterday. »

'1967: A Psych Odyssey' GIFs and Chief Vick's return

26 February 2014 7:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Star Kirsten Nelson told Zap2it in a pre-show interview that "1967: A Psych Odyssey" is really the show's goodbye episode, with not many dry eyes on set when they filmed Lassiter and Juliet's final scene. We could not agree more -- pass the tissues, please, we're still crying.

But never fear, "Psych"-Os. This is not the last you've seen of Chief Vick or Juliet. "Chief Vick is no longer the chief of the Santa Barbara Police Department," says Nelson. "But we all get a little appearance later. You'll see the chief again. I will be back, in a different form and a different time. But yes, the chief will be back."

With that bit of good news, let's relish in the best lines and GIFs from the episode.

Best Lines:

Henry: "I wasn't on the force in '67. How old do you all think I am?"

Shawn: »

Berlin Film Review: ‘In the Courtyard’

12 February 2014 7:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A self-described “expert in despondency” meets his match in “In the Courtyard,” a wry, oh-so-gentle dual character study saved from sleepiness by the unexpected star pairing of Catherine Deneuve and Gustave Kervern. Their tender, good-humored performances — as, respectively, a restless Parisian retiree and aimless caretaker who discover an unlikely kinship in differently transitional life stages — lend this slight tale more gravity than we’ve come to expect from Tunisian-born helmer Pierre Salvadori, who recently struck gold internationally with the Audrey Tautou-starring rom-coms “Priceless” and “Beautiful Lies.” More melancholy but still eminently easygoing, Salvadori’s latest doesn’t have quite the same crossover potential as those films, but the Deneuve brand should ensure widespread arthouse bookings all the same.

Now in her eighth decade, Deneuve’s late-career evolution into France’s most glamorous character actress continues apace. As in Emmanuelle Bercot’s “On My Way” last year, “In the Courtyard »

Berlin 2014: 'In the Courtyard' review

12 February 2014 6:39 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Catherine Deneuve graces the Berlinale once more with Pierre Salvadori's In the Courtyard (2014), a delicate Parisian tragicomedy about a community in an upmarket Parisian apartment block. Dark and emotionally complex, it still offers moments of eccentric silliness. French TV comedian Gustave Kervern stars as Antoine, a grizzled, lonely drunkard who abruptly walks off stage at his band's gig in the opening scene. In the meantime, he drinks high percentage beer and ogres around talking to himself, but after a trip to a job centre, Antoine somehow finds himself being interviewed for a concierge position.
