The Girl on the Train London Press Conference Report

26 September 2016 1:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Entertainment One stuck to the railway motif from the previous night’s premiere when they staged the London press conference for The Girl on the Train.  And the imposing hotel at St Pancras Station was equally aware of its heritage (check out the little engine in front of Luke Evans below).

Stars Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett and Evans lined up alongside director Tate Taylor and author of the best-seller, Paula Hawkins, to take questions on the characters in the story, the change from the novel’s original location and how the film reflected the many pressures faced by women today.

Hawkins also found herself being asked about the standard of rail services in this country, while Evans revealed his reasons for not appearing in Only God Forgives and this year’s Lff closer, Free Fire.

The event was nearly de-railed by the youngest member of the press corps, a babe »

The Girl On The Train New Images Let Us See What She’s Looking At

25 September 2016 12:56 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The Girl on the Train is a film that might wander through a host of different theories, and films that may seem like similar theories pop up a few times a year, as direct-to-video or cable network efforts.

I hope potential audiences take into account the well-received book this is based on, and Director Tate Taylor‘s abilities when deciding on this one. Taylor, of The Help and Get On Up, should fit well in this odd ride, even if his work doesn’t make that obvious to everyone. He has knack for conversations and moments of introspection that should translate brilliantly to this, admittedly Rear Window-esque, thriller.

Of course, Emily Blunt may convince you as well.

The film has finally released some looks at more of what’s going on in the film, notably other members of the cast who make up what The Girl on the Train is looking at. »

Gold Trailer: Matthew McConaughey Is a Billionaire Prospector

8 September 2016 3:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Have you ever wanted to see what Matthew McConaughey would look like balding and in a pair of tighty-whities ala Walter White from Breaking Bad? Well, then you should probably check out the trailer for his upcoming movie Gold, which was just released online. Outside of the actor's crazy look in the movie, Gold boasts a stellar cast, a very promising premise, and the first trailer has us thinking this could be an Oscar contender.

Gold is being released by TWC-Dimension, who released the trailer online today. The movie is loosely based on real events and centers on a pair of men, played by Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramirez, who venture into the Indonesian jungle in search of gold.

‘Gold’ Trailer: Matthew McConaughey Is a Balding Billionaire [Video]

8 September 2016 12:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A balding Matthew McConaughey has gold fever in the first trailer for TWC-Dimension’s aptly-named “Gold.”

“The gold is mine,” his character Kenny Wells declares. “I found it.”

Gold” is directed by Stephen Gaghan and loosely based on the Bre-x mining scandal of the 1990s. McConaughey plays Wells as a down-and-out prospector who teams up with a geologist (Edgar Ramirez) to find a massive gold deposit in the jungles of Borneo.

“It’s amazing how a little gold dust can just change everything,” Wells says in the trailer. “For better or worse, the ride has begun.”

But keeping the gold is even harder as Wall Street,  the FBI and the Indonesian military take notice.

The film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard as Wells’ wife, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood and Stacy Keach.

Gaghan, who directed “Syriana” and wrote “Traffic,” helmed from a screenplay by Patrick Massett & John Zinman, who »

Coming Distractions: Matthew McConaughey loses his hair, finds Gold in a new trailer

8 September 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Academy Award winner, Lincoln lawyer, and Lincoln spokesman Matthew McConaughey is back and ready to find Gold. The trailer features McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a hapless entrepreneur who improbably strikes it rich; McConaughey, who famously lost weight for The Dallas Buyers Club, reportedly packed on 40 extra pounds to play Wells.

For those underwhelmed by his somber performance in the recent Sea Of Trees, Gold certainly appears to boast a more traditional type-a McConaughey swagger. In addition to his expanded waistline, McConaughey is sporting a skullet, overbite, and a desperate flakiness. It’s that last attribute that seemingly deposits him at a dead end deep in the jungles of Borneo. But that’s where Kenny Wells’ luck finally changes, as he and geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) discover the movie’s titular mineral.

The two partners hop on the fast track, as evidenced by Wells’ wife, (Bryce Dallas Howard), swanky ...

First Trailer For Oscar Favorite Gold Reveals A Remarkable Rags-To-Riches Story

8 September 2016 10:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The McConaissance is a slightly silly, but no less effective term to surmise the radical transformation of Matthew McConaughey from rom-com favorite to a bona fide Oscar-winner by the time Dallas Buyers Club rolled around in 2013. During those intervening years, the intensity of McConaughey’s performances in such crowd-pleasing hits as The Wolf of Wall Street along with the inaugural season of True Detective ensured that the actor was never short of tantalizing roles.

The latest of which places him in the grubby shoes of Kenny Wells, a middle-aged nobody from Las Vegas who unearths a literal goldmine somewhere deep in the Indonesian jungle. It’s a remarkable story based loosely on the Bre-x mining scandal, and one that will underpin Stephen Gaghan’s long-awaited character drama, Gold.

Pegged to arrive in late December, today’s reveal trailer showcases McConaughey’s lead stumble upon an eye-watering fortune, one estimated to be worth upwards of $30 billion. »

Matthew McConaughey Sets His Sights on Oscar ‘Gold’

8 September 2016 9:54 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Matthew McConaughey is eyeing up his second Oscar. Starring in “Gold” as Kenny Wells, a man who went from pawning his wife’s jewelry to striking one of the century’s largest gold mines in the middle of the Indonesian jungle, McConaughey looks to be delivering the singular mix of high energy and pensive brooding he mastered in past projects like “Dallas Buyers Club” and “True Detective.” Helmed by Oscar-winning director-writer Stephen Gaghan and co-starring Edgar Ramírez as a geologist, Corey Stoll as a Wall Street suit, and Bryce Dallas Howard as McConaughey’s onscreen wife, the film, which is based on a true story, looks to be an exciting addition to the still fuzzy Oscar race. “Gold” is due out in theaters Oct. 15 and comes on the heels of Ramírez’s first mainstream film role as boxer Roberto Duran in “Hands of Stone.” Considering his turn in another Oscar contender, »

Matthew McConaughey is still feeling alright, alright, alright in the first trailer for his new drama “Gold” — probably due to the fact that he literally strikes gold. Inspired by a true story, McConaughey stars as Kenny Wells, a modern day prospector desperate for a lucky break, who teams up with a similarly eager geologist (Edgar Ramírez) and sets off into the Indonesian jungle looking to make it rich. They quickly learn, however, that finding gold is much easier than keeping it.

‘Gold’ Trailer: Matthew McConaughey’s Wild New Role Is Striving For The Oscar

8 September 2016 5:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

You know an Oscar-ready role when you see one, and the exhilarating debut trailer for The Weinstein Company’s “Gold” makes every effort to let you know that Matthew McConaughey is checking off all the boxes. An over-sized personality? Yup. A character inspired by real life? Check. An extreme physical transformation? Got that, too. “Free State of Jones” may not have been the critical favorite McConaughey was hoping, but “Gold” might just be the perfect redemption.

McConaughey, who gained 40 pounds for the role, stars as Kenny Wells, a down-on-his-luck sleaze who heads to the Borneo jungle with a geologist (Edgar Ramirez) and discovers the world’s biggest gold find in history. The result is a rags-to-riches boom for Wells and his wife (Bryce Dallas Howard), though with so much money comes new adversaries like the FBI.

First Trailer For Matthew McConaughey’s Gold

8 September 2016 1:28 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Sporting a balding head, snuggle tooth, pot belly, and the undeniable look of a mad man, Matthew McConaughey takes the lead in Gold as Kenny Wells, a struggling business man who discovers gold in the Indonesian jungle, in a tale that tells the true story of the Bre-x Mineral corporation mining scandal. The first directorial effort from Syriana’s Stephen Gaghan in over a decade, there is a lot to like about this first trailer, via Vulture, which carries with it an American Hustle vibe, with some The Wold of Wall Street for good measure, and McConaughey is definitely having a lot of fun leading this impressive cast, which includes Edgar Ramirez, Bryce Dallas Howard,Corey Stoll, Bruce Greenwood, and Toby Kebbell. Gold is set for release in the U.S on December 25th, just in time for awards season, while no release date has been given for this side »

First Trailer for Stephen Gaghan's 'Gold' with Matthew McConaughey

7 September 2016 9:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"For better or worse, the ride had begun. And what a ride..." The Weinstein Company has debuted the first trailer for the film called Gold, the latest from screenwriter Stephen Gaghan, who also directs. Gold stars Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, and Édgar Ramírez as Michael Acosta, two businessmen who team up to search for gold in Indonesia. It's based on the 1993 Bre-x Mineral Corporation mining scandal, and almost feels like a Wolf of Wall Street sequel in a few ways. The cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Joshua Harto, Timothy Simons, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood, Bill Camp and Rachael Taylor. This looks solid, but there's a wacky side to it I wasn't expecting. It might be fun to watch. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Stephen Gaghan's Gold, originally from Vulture: Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey), an unlucky man, teams-up with geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) to »

Matthew McConaughey and Edgar Ramírez Hunt For ‘Gold’ in First Trailer

7 September 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After much anticipation, the first trailer has dropped for Gold, writer-director Stephen Gaghan‘s first feature since 2005’s Syriana. Arriving Christmas day, Gold follows the adventure of an unlikely duo (Matthew McConaughey & Edgar Ramírez) who head into the Indonesian jungle in search of that titular treasure. Named in our most-anticipated films of the fall, Gold could be an exciting, time-spanning adventure to end the year with a bang.

Co-penned by Patrick Massett and John Zinman with Gaghan, also of note is cinematographer Robert Elswit who has lensed such features as NightcrawlerInherent Vice, and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation among many gems. The dirt-covered, muddy aesthetic of McConaughey and Ramíez in the Indonesian jungle is paired with the sleek sheen of suits and briefcases on Wall Street to make for a poignant juxtaposition, while also looking a great deal like McConaughey’s recent Scorsese collaboration.

Update: Will Latino Viewers Continue To Say 'No Mas' To Latino Movies?

6 September 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Update: 

I've added the update for this story at the end.

Original Column:

Today something significant will be happening. Today, people can prove me wrong about something I've been saying for years. 

But I don't think they will.

See, today, Hands Of Stone will go wide. It'll jump from 810 theaters to around 2,000, with the hope of a big Labor Day Weekend payoff in a few days. 

It centers on the legendary Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran, has a stellar cast, and comes from a time in history that's so recent that the film's central figure is still alive today. For advocates of diversity, you have the talented Edgar Ramirez starring as Duran, you have pop music megastar Usher Raymond as the iconic pugilist "Sugar" Ray Leonard, and a supporting cast littered with hispanic performers like Rubén Blades, Ana de Armas, and Yancey Arias

The production is rounded out by the "Raging Bull" himself Robert De Niro, »
