Good, Bad & Ugly: Heineman Embeds in the Borderlands
Towards the end of Matthew Heineman’s remarkable Cartel Land, which sees the filmmaker embedded deep within two fledgling anti-cartel independent militia groups – one in the southern Mexico region of Michoacán called the Autodefensas, the other dubbed the Arizona Border Recon, now patrolling Arizona’s Altar Valley – the once celebrated leader of the Mexican rebel group, Dr. Jose Mireles, steps from his secret asylum shirtless and haggard. Looking like the lost and lamenting Édgar Ramírez as the self styled revolutionary and terrorist at the end of Olivier Assayas’ Carlos, Mireles realizes he’s become just another casualty of Mexico’s deep seated corruption at the hands of a never ending cycle of cartel. As guards are let down and professional clumsiness sets in, Heineman’s characters are revealed to be as complex as the alarmingly multifarious situations unfolding on both sides of the border. »

Read More: Watch: Jake Gyllenhaal Steps into the Ring in 'Southpaw' Trailer Jake Gyllenhaal and his new muscles star are front and center in Antoine Fuqua's boxing drama "Southpaw," which opens nationwide today. "Southpaw" is the first of several boxing films expected to come out in 2015. Other titles in the lineup include "Bleed for This," starring Miles Teller and Aaron Eckhart, "Hands of Stone," starring Edgar Ramirez and Robert De Niro, and Ryan Coogler's "Creed," featuring Michael B. Jordan. With the next generation of talent stepping into the ring, what is it that makes boxing films so great? In comparison to other sports, boxing suits the structure of cinema in more ways than one. Boxing films make up their own sub-genre, and the subject is often synonymous with the production of critically acclaimed works. Relying on formal elements to construct a relationship between the boxer, the ring and the film's aesthetic, »

Ding Ding! This week sees round one of an upcoming flurry of boxing-related movies, with the arrival of “Southpaw” (read our review). Several years in development and once set to star Eminem in the lead role, the film arrives in theaters under the direction of Antoine Fuqua, and with a once-more-transformed Jake Gyllenhaal as the once-great fighter attempting to win back his daughter after the death of his beloved wife. Not long after, we’ll have some new contenders, including Ryan Coogler’s hotly-anticipated “Rocky” spin-off “Creed” starring Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller vehicle “Bleed For This,” and the Robert De Niro and Edgar Ramirez flick “Hands Of Stone.” Together with the recent blockbuster Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight, boxing is definitely having a moment again, but then that’s nothing new: it’s always been one of the most popular sports to focus a movie around. The matches alone are far more cinematic than, »

Following massive success with Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, David O. Russell has again teamed up with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for Joy, a movie about Joy Mangano, the woman who invented the Miracle Mop. "What a quaint little story," you might think. If this trailer is a good indication, Joy is anything but quaint. It's a rollicking preview filled with The Rolling Stones, guns, and some good old-fashioned sobbing sessions. You'll even see a glimpse of Orange Is the New Black's Dascha Polanco, in addition to Robert De Niro, Virginia Madsen, and Édgar Ramírez. The movie is out Christmas Day, and I highly suggest watching the trailer above. »

Following the glittering awards success of both American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook, filmmaker David O. Russell is primed to launch another horse into this year’s race with Joy, which is due to open smack back in the middle of cinema’s annual purple patch, Christmas Day. And judging by the riveting first teaser released earlier today, it’s likely both the film and its cast will be in contention later this year.
Starring Jennifer Lawrence as Miracle Mop inventor and entrepreneur Joy Mangano, O. Russell’s biopic charts her meteoric rise as a prodigious inventor of all things household. At one point, the titular protagonist holds close to 100 patents for a variety of gizmos, though Mangano struggled to balance a lucrative business and family life, given that she was also acting as a single mother to three young children.

The career of filmmaker David O. Russell has seen an intriguing turn in the past few years, as his last three films have combined to give him a total of five Oscar nominations and four Golden Globe nominations, with his previous four films garnering none in either awards ceremony. During the latter run of his career, the filmmaker has established an ensemble whom he has cast time and time again. Among that ensemble is actress Jennifer Lawrence, who has collaborated with Russell twice already, and is poised to take on the leading role for his next feature, titled Joy.
Based on the life of Joy Mangano, Russell takes the directing and screenwriting reins on the film once again, sharing a story credit with Bridesmaids‘ Annie Mumolo. Alongside Lawrence, the movie’s cast also includes now-regular Russell collaborators Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, as well as Virginia Madsen and Édgar Ramírez. »

"Joy" is actually the name of Jennifer Lawrence's character, but it's also how you'll feel watching the epic first trailer for this movie. Let us all bow down, once again, to Katniss/Mystique, who shows so much range just in this trailer alone that they may as well engrave her name on an Academy Award right now. "Joy" is also a good title for something that reunites director David O. Russell with his impressive "Silver Linings Playbook" cast -- JLaw, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro. (What is this, the 107th movie Jen and Bradley have made together? No complaints.)
The trailer, which includes a Christmassy version of The Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want," is above.
The movie's plot suggests there's more complexity of emotion to the story than pure joy. Here's the synopsis 20th Century Fox shared with the trailer:

There's not a huge groundswell of support in place so far for the remake of Point Break that's being released into cinemas this December. The unveiling of the first trailer for the film didn't really help in that regard either.
Now? One of the cast of the original film, Lori Petty, has added her voice to those of the dissenters. Petty played Tyler in the original movie, and she said to The Hollywood Reporter of the remake that "I think it's the dumbest thing I've ever heard".
Although he’s primarily known for comedy on TV screens as the endlessly annoying political wonk Jonah Ryan on Veep, actor Timothy Simons has been enjoying a run of dramatic work in cinemas. That is set to continue with him joining the cast of Stephen Gaghan’s Gold, which stars Matthew McConaughey.The film, which has a script from Patrick Massett and John Zinman, tells the story of the 1993 Bre-x Corporation mining scandal. The plot follows a rough-around-the-edges prospector Kenny Wells (McConaughey) who stumbles upon one of the largest gold mines in the world in the Indonesian jungle. Which, you may not be surprised to learn given the word “scandal” before, turned out to be bogus. Simons is aboard to play a Wall Street banker who must leave his cushy corporate surroundings and travel to the jungles of Borneo to assess the company run by Wells and his geologist partner, »
