The first round of films have been announced for the Vancouver International Film Festival (September 29 - October 14), including a new program called Future//Present that is curated by critic (and Notebook contributor) Adam Cook.Canadian IMAGES1:54 (Yan England)At sixteen, Tim (Mommy’s Antoine Olivier Pilon) is a bright student and gifted athlete. He is, however, somewhat timid, and with good reason. Navigating the nebulous world of teenage sexual identity has left the young man isolated and afraid. He copes with his anxiety by throwing himself back into competitive running, a sport he’d abandoned. In Yan England's dramatic thriller, bullying and peer pressure are the catalysts for a dramatic change in attitude and a redefinition of what makes Tim Tim.Darwin (Benjamin Duffield)Fans of The Hunger Games are in for a treat! Set in a dystopian future, Benjamin Duffield’s film imagines what spending all of »
BBC America’s acclaimed sci-fi series Orphan Black rests on the shoulders of series star Tatiana Maslany. Ostensibly a story about a shadowy corporate monolith and the consequences of illegal human cloning, in the details, it’s a character study focused largely on a set of identical female clones—11 of them by the end of Season 4—all of which are played by Maslany. Her uncanny ability to play every character so distinctly that it can feel to viewers like separate… »
I’m all about organizations with heart. Places that make you feel at home. And while the San Diego Comic Con is phenomenal and offers many amazing experiences, it can also be overwhelming and make you feel a bit like you’re just one of many ants in the ant farm, toiling slowly along towards your next goal.
That’s why I’ve said before and I’ll say again that Nerd HQ is a great alternative place to go and get your geek on when you’re feeling a little burnt out on the crowds of Sdcc. Not only that, but the fact that its creators, Zachary Levi and Dave Coleman, built it from scratch and maintain a hands-on approach to running it as it grows (among other things, Zac hosts almost every Conversation and Dave keeps things running behind the scenes); and that all proceeds go to the charity of Operation Smile, »

During Final Round voting, as TV Academy members cast their ballots for this year’s Primetime Emmy winners, Pete Hammond takes a closer look at the nominees in key categories. Last year's Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner Viola Davis is back for a second go-round, nominated opposite category regulars Claire Danes, Taraji P. Henson, Tatiana Maslany and Robin Wright, making this year's lineup look like a carbon copy—with one welcome addition. In her fourth year of… »
IndieWire’s Vote: “The Americans”
We’re obviously big fans of a lot of these shows. “Better Call Saul,” “Mr. Robot” and even “House of Cards” are deserving nominees, and there’s no shame in voting for any one of them. But come on: “The Americans” getting an Emmy nod for Outstanding Drama Series is like the Chicago Cubs reaching the World Series. If they made it this far — finally — they better freaking win. “The Americans” has been the best drama on cable for four years. An intricate spy thriller side-by-side with an equally compelling family drama, Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields have crafted a series as appealing as it is relevant. When it comes to FX’s best show (which is saying something), it’s more than just “you should »

Call them the small screen’s masters of disguise. Tatiana Maslany has played 11 unique characters, and counting, on the sci-fi thriller “Orphan Black,” and Matthew Rhys has donned well over a dozen alternate identities as undercover Kgb spy Philip Jennings on “The Americans.” And yet despite significant critical acclaim for their work from the very beginning, it took Emmy voters awhile to catch on. Maslany earned her first nom last year in her third season, while Rhys finally broke through this year in season four. Variety introduced the Canadian-born actress and Welsh-born actor by phone, while she was in Prague and he was in Brooklyn. Together they reflect on what it’s like to play roles within roles, prepare for their respective final seasons, and be “snubbed.”
Congratulations on the Emmy nominations this year. Both of you had a few years of people saying you were “snubbed.” And how does actually getting nominated compare?

The diversity of shows represented in the lead drama actress Emmy race — from the sudsy antics of “Empire” to the clone club fantasy of “Orphan Black” — underscores how the field is wide open this year. Viola Davis made history last year as the first African-American to prevail in the category for her tour de force debut in ABC’s “How to Get Away With Murder.” This time around, “Murder” doesn’t have the same momentum going into final judging. Emmy watchers think 2016 could be the year for “House of Cards” pillar Robin Wright, who has nabbed four consecutive noms but has yet to win.
Viola Davis is still the favorite. Although there was less chatter about the bravado of “Murder” anti-heroine Annalise Keating in season two, Davis still can assemble a hell of a clip reel of Keating delivering razor-sharp observations about the human condition in stentorian tones. Robin Wright »

For a lot of actors, starring in an intense romantic drama set in the Arctic would seem like hard work. For Tatiana Maslany, it probably feels like a vacation since she gets to play just the one character. Two Lovers and a Bear stars the Orphan Black actress as one of the lovers and Dane DeHaan as the other. […]

Another week has gone by, meaning it's time to re-cap the latest movie news, clips, and trailers that we saw in this first week of August!
While we are a bit preoccupied this week with today's release of Suicide Squad, there is still some exciting news in the pipeline that has us looking forward to the fall and winter, with new trailers for films like Storks, Two Lovers and a Bear, and our first glimpse at Christopher Nolan's latest, Dunkirk.
We also got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming The Magnificent Seven, a western re-make starring Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and Denzel Washington. Now that's one impressive cast. We have a new clip from Sausage Party to »

We are in the Great North, near the North Pole, in a modern town where about two hundred souls live precariously in minus fifty weather, and where roads lead to nowhere but the endless white. It is in this eerie lunar landscape that Lucy and Roman, two young tormented souls, fell in love. But now, ghosts from Lucy’s past are coming back, and she needs to run away or she will burn.
Together, these lovers decide to make a leap for life, a leap for inner peace. They head out in the Great White, where the strangeness makes one feel he is travelling inside of himself.

Today we present to you a trio of new movie trailers from the festival circuit, and they all look like must-sees for any film lover. Check out the previews for notable selections of SXSW, Cannes, Toronto and Fantastic Fest below. I Am Not a Serial Killer In what sounds like an indie teen movie version of the show Dexter, this thriller adapted from a cult novel follows a young man (Where the Wild Things star Max Records) who everyone in town thinks could be a serial killer as he discovers an actual mass murderer on a rampage. Christopher Lloyd co-stars, and IFC is releasing the SXSW hit in theaters and online on August 26. Two Lovers and a Bear Orphan Black breakout Tatiana Maslany continues her rise to stardom with a leading role...

Anyone that follows any of my social media profiles (I’m on everything short of LinkedIn) is aware that I watch a lot of television. Discovering cult classics like The Prisoner to current hits like American Horror Story, I legit schedule my lack of social life around my shows. I do have morals and refuse to post spoilers unlike the many assholes out there who just can’t resist a good Game Of Thrones supposed death. My love always resides in horror and there’s a variety of horror programming on several networks, each aiming for their own Walking Dead hit, but I don’t stick to just one type of programming. There’s other shows I’ve been checking out (Ok, maybe obsessed with) that prove to be just as riveting and, at times, just as scary as what you might find in a murder house.
Set in a small town near the North Pole where roads lead to nowhere, the story follows Roman (Dane DeHaan) and Lucy (Tatiana Maslany), two burning souls who come together to make a leap for life and inner peace. Also, there may or may not be a bear. I don't want to spoil the trailer for you . . . but yes, there is a bear. I can't say that I'm familiar with Kim Nguyen's work as a... Read More »

"There's a blizzard coming." The first trailer has debuted thanks to Tiff for a film called Two Lovers and a Bear, a relationship drama set in the small town near the North Pole. Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan star as two "star-crossed lovers" and lost souls that end up together at the top of the world. Of course, things can't be perfect and their pasts catch up to them, forcing them to make some rash decisions. There are some shots in this that seem straight out of The Thing, and an actual polar bear makes an appearance a couple of times. How the bears plays into the plot, I don't know, but it's cool to see even though it seems odd. The film didn't get great reviews out of Cannes but a few of you may be interested in it. Here's the festival trailer (+ poster) for Kim Nguyen's Two Lovers and a Bear, »

Canadian filmmaker Kim Nguyen burst onto the international scene a few years back with “War Witch,” with the picture winning Prize of the Ecumenical Jury – Special Mention and Silver Bear Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival, and picking up more honors along the way. Four years later and he’s back with “Two Lovers And […]

Over the last decade, Kim Nguyen has emerged as one of Canada’s most essential filmmakers. The director’s 2012 drama “War Witch” earned an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Film, on top of winning 10 prizes at the Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Picture. His next film, “Two Lovers And A Bear,” is looking to find similar global attention thanks to leading duo Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan. The indie drama premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and will next screen at Tiff in September.

The “Orphan Black” Emmy nominee stars opposite DeHaan in this romance about two star-crossed lovers who find that even the icy expanses of the Arctic offer little refuge from their pasts.

After a promising initial line-up, the Toronto International Film Festival has delivered more titles with their full Canadian slate. Among the line-up is Xavier Dolan‘s It’s Only the End of the World, Bruce MacDonald‘s new feature Weirdos, Deepa Mehta‘s Anatomy of Violence, as well as Two Lovers and a Bear, starring Tatiana Maslany and Dane DeHaan, which we have the first trailer for today.
We said in our review from Cannes, “Kim Nguyen’s Two Lovers and a Bear is a film that suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. Like an indie playlist stuck on constant shuffle, unapologetically reveling in a sort of manic unclassifiable genre. This isn’t always necessarily a bad thing, but, for some reason, Nguyen’s scattershot tonal shifts — which hop between a romance on the rocks; a self-serious study of grieving; and a surreal buddy comedy — can prove quite jarring. »

Xavier Dolan‘s Cannes prize-winner “It’s Only the End of the World,” Kim Nguyen’s “Two Lovers and a Bear” with Tatiana Maslany, and Deepa Mehta’s “Anatomy of Violence,” a dramatization of a 2012 gang rape in India, are among the Canadian films that will screen at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival, Tiff organizers announced on Wednesday. The festival announced more than two dozen films in eight different sections of the festival, which will run from Sept. 8 through Sept. 18 in the Canadian city. In the Special Presentations section, Canadian films include “It’s Only the End of the World, »
