Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer reportedly arriving on Friday

22 November 2014 11:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Over the past we’ve heard several rumours about the impending trailer for Disney and Lucasfilm’s hugely-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens; there’s been the obligatory alleged trailer description, along with reports that it will make its debut in cinemas with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on December 17th. However, it seems we may not have to wait that long…

According to a rumour on Reddit, Disney is looking to launch the first trailer this Friday with a special even that will see it shown before every movie in 100 U.S. theaters this weekend, starting on Friday. Apparently said theaters have been told that Big Hero 6 has to be shown at the earliest showtime on each of those days, with the studio no doubt looking to boost the takings of its animated Marvel adaptation by capitalising on the Star Wars fever.

Learn the ‘Art of the Sell’ from Oscar Isaac in A Most Violent Year clip

21 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A24 Films has released a new clip from director J.C. Chandor’s (All Is Lost) upcoming crime drama A Most Violent Year which sees Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) teaching us the ‘art of the sell’, check it out after the official synopsis…

A Most Violent Year is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay.

J.C. Chandor’s third feature examines one immigrant’s determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and – above all – his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A Most Violent Year, »

Alex Garland's EX_MACHINA Covers This Month's Total Film

21 November 2014 3:45 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson), a programmer at an internet-search giant, wins a competition to spend a week at the private mountain estate of the company’s brilliant and reclusive CEO, Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac). Upon his arrival, Caleb learns that Nathan has chosen him to be the human component in a Turing Test – charging him with evaluating the capabilities, and ultimately the consciousness, of Nathan’s latest experiment in artificial intelligence. That experiment is Ava (Alicia Vikander), a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated, seductive––and more deceptive––than the two men could have imagined. Ex Machina hits UK theatres on January 23, and opens in the Us on April 25. »

Oscar Isaac Is As Cool As Ice In New Clip For A Most Violent Year

20 November 2014 10:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After wowing critics and audiences alike last year with his role in the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, Oscar Isaac is quickly becoming one of the most sought after stars in Hollywood — a rise that has landed him a place in J.J. AbramsStar Wars: The Force Awakens. But before jetting off to a galaxy far, far away, Isaac has another, more drama-oriented role ahead of him in J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which recently debuted a new two-minute clip that effectively justifies the actor’s place among the Oscar buzz.

In the footage, Isaac’s character educates some potential employees on the etiquette he wants them to exude as part of his ambitious oil heating company. Set within the Big Apple during the winter of 1981, A Most Violent Year is a tale of love, violence and ultimately, the fabled American Dream, as Isaac’s Abel runs »

Watch: Oscar Isaac Teaches the "Art of the Sell" in New Clip from 'A Most Violent Year'

20 November 2014 7:50 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We all know what we have to talk about with this new clip from A Most Violent Year. Oscar Isaac's hair is unbelievable. I have very thick hair and can only dream someone would style my hair like that. I do not have the budget to hire that person. If I was Oscar Isaac, I would keep that hairstyle for as long as I possibly could. Now I got that out of the way, we can move on to the point of this article. I am eagerly awaiting to see the latest from J.C. Chandor. He is establishing himself as an incredibly versatile and exciting director. All is Lost was quite an impressive feat and taking a massive shift over to a 1980s set thriller (which also stars the immaculate Jessica Chastain) is really interesting. At this point, Chandor has proven himself as someone to respect and admire, so »

Always Take The Fancy Option: Watch This New Clip From 'A Most Violent Year'

19 November 2014 11:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While I'll leave it for the Oscar folks to look in the crystal ball and make predictions about the prospects of J.C. Chandor's "A Most Violent Year," the only thing you have to know is that it's a tremendous picture. Our review out of AFI Fest declared that the movie "asks you to watch and listen and pay close attention; it also rewards that investment with subtle, real pleasures and provocations." And now another glimpse of what's coming can be seen in this new clip. Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain lead the movie, which is set in 1981 and which as you might guess from the title was not a good time in New York City. The story follows an immigrant chasing the American dream while trying to stay on his own untainted path as the world around him lies in moral squalor. And in this scene, we see Isaac's »

Exclusive: 'A Most Violent Year's' Oscar Isaac clarifies that 'this is not a joke'

19 November 2014 10:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As awards contenders rise and fall in the last-minute deluge of film premieres and screenings that is November, one movie that continues to stick with this particular writer is J.C. Chandor's "A Most Violent Year." Sure, that seems silly considering the picture only debuted two weeks ago, but context is everything. We'll spare the names of the three other contenders I've seen since, that I need to remind myself I've actually seen. That's how impressive Chandor's period thriller is. Set in 1981, "Year" centers on Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac), a self-made businessman who is trying to take his New York City area oil heating business to the next level. While his wife Anna (Jessica Chastain) takes care of the books, Abel is in the process of securing a new headquarters for the company, which will help make it a powerhouse. That is until his business comes under siege from criminals hijacking his trucks. »

StreamFix: Pixar favorites, 'Kingpin,' more streaming gems

StreamFix is your weekly update on the best and weirdest streams happening on Netflix, Crackle, Amazon, and Hulu. You dig it? Check out these happenin' spectacles now.  Netflix "Kingpin" This is just a reminder that Bill Murray was up to some weird stuff in the middle to late '90s. "Kingpin" is raucous and watchable, but God, remember "Larger Than Life"? Elephant humor, folks! What about "The Man Who Knew Too Little"? Or "Wild Things"? Or -- oh yes -- "Space Jam"? Thank God he gave us "Rushmore" because that filmography was getting grim.  "Babes in Toyland" I command you to embrace the holiday spirit and revisit this 1961 classic with Ray Bolger and Annette Funicello. No, it's not the Laurel and Hardy version, but it features Ann Jillian of the perfect '80s sitcom "It's a Living" as Bo Peep.  "Doug Benson: Doug Dynasty" And now, ladies and gentlemen, my »

'Selma' Review: 7 Things You Should Know About Ava DuVernay's Mlk Biopic

18 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

On Monday night (Nov. 17, 2014) in NYC, Ava DuVernay and cinematographer Bradford Young presented a festival cut of "Selma," which premiered last week at AFI Fest to rave reviews and a standing ovation. (The NYC audience had an equally enthusiastic reaction.) This period drama offers an intimate look at the events leading up to the famous civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Al., including the devastating events known as Bloody Sunday.

David Oyelowo stars as Martin Luther King, Jr., alongside Carmen Ejogo as Coretta Scott King, Tom Wilkinson as Lyndon B. Johnson, and a star-studded cast playing storied civil rights activists and leaders.

1. It's called "Selma" for a reason.

This isn't your typical biopic; while obviously a great deal of the narrative is focused on Martin Luther King, Jr., "Selma" is about all of the people involved in the events leading up to the legendary marches. "Selma" offers the human »

Rumoured trailer description for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

17 November 2014 10:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Well I think this wins award for the most tenuous headline for today, but Badass Digest claim they have been given a scoop on the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and have posted a description of it, which you can read below.

Now, of course, this is just a rumour and may or may not be real. Bear that in mind.

If my sources are correct (and this is a big If. These sources have been mighty reliable in the past, and if they’re wrong I believe they’re wrong honestly, ie they’re not bullshitting me), it’ll be short. And when I say short, I mean one minute long. It’s going to have The Force Theme played on woodwinds, softly, over flashing images of the main leads, each fading to black. There’s no dialogue, just reveals of the characters. And then »

Off the Carpet: Where we stand after AFI Fest and self-proclaimed 'official' launches

17 November 2014 9:43 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A lot has happened to further set the stage for this year's Oscar race in the last week and a half. AFI Fest ultimately landed four major world premieres — "A Most Violent Year," "The Gambler," "Selma" and "American Sniper." Film Independent at Lacma added "Big Eyes" to the equation. "Unbroken" premiered in Sydney just hours ago as a show of appreciation (the film was largely shot in Australia) while screening to some press stateside (the big coming out will be Thanksgiving weekend). And the awards shows themselves have already started, namely the Governors Awards and the summarily dismissed Hollywood Film Awards. I suppose it's time to see where we stand… Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" played to a disinterested Academy audience the weekend of release and didn't become the box office story it was expected to be (it will be just fine on that score, though — perspective). Also, people across the »

10 indie sci-fi films to look out for in 2015

17 November 2014 6:25 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Looking for some less mainstream sci-fi films in the year ahead? Then here's our list of 10 genre movies to look out for in 2015...

If you've been keeping an eye on next year's schedules, you'll probably already know about some of the major sci-fi films due for release in 2015. Ridley Scott will leave Matt Damon stranded on the red planet in The Martian. Colin Trevorrow will unleash a new breed of dinosaurs in Jurassic World. George Miller will be bringing us his belated Mad Max sequel Fury Road, Neill Blomkamp will show off his robot sci-fi comedy Chappie, and then, of course, there's Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But what about the smaller genre films, the ones that don't have the marketing budget of, say, Disney's Tomorrowland, or the brand recognition of Star Wars? Those are the kinds of films we're focusing on here: the lower budget, »

Predictions for the 2015 Spirit Awards

14 November 2014 12:20 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

One of the most interesting precursors to me is always the Independent Spirit Awards. They don’t always cite the same things that the Academy does, so it’s a chance to see smaller and more eclectic fare given a moment in the sun. Even though the Spirit Award have matched up with Oscar more often in the recent past than was usual, it’s still a place where you can see honors for films that wouldn’t otherwise have a chance. Personally, that’s one of the my favorite things about certain precursors, the fact that they bestow citations on worthy cinema that could have been ignored entirely. Before I give you my shot in the dark predictions for this year’s Spirit Awards (which will announce their nominees in under two weeks…specifically on November 25th), I just wanted to further my point about the choices made by this group. »

Jessica Chastain demands respect in 'A Most Violent Year' clip

13 November 2014 3:13 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year, Oscar Isaac plays Abel, a New York businessman struggling with life in the oh-so-gritty city that was New York in 1981. By Abel's side is his wife, Anna (Jessica Chastain), whose family plays a role in some of Abel's business endeavors. And in a new clip from the film, which is already garnering Oscar buzz, Anna gives Lawrence, played by Chastain's Interstellar costar David Oyelowo, a lesson in how to be respectful. A Most Violent Year opens in theaters on December 31. »

The Hype Cycle: AFI Fest

13 November 2014 11:46 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As the end of the year approaches, the number of question marks in the Oscar ranks continues to sink lower. This past week, Selma, American Sniper, The Gambler and A Most Violent Year all dropped at AFI Fest, leaving only movies like Unbroken (still presumed to be a front-runner in a crowded field), Exodus: Gods and Kings (possibly not an awards movie at all), Big Eyes, and Into the Woods (who knows?) still unseen.

Did these newcomers make an impact worthy of making the charts? Let’s explore below.

1. Selma

It seemed like just a few weeks ago Selma might not even be completed in time for a serious awards push. This week Oprah convinced Director Ava DuVernay to screen the whole film rather than just a 30-minute preview, and the gamble paid off in spades.

Critics have been hailing Selma as an American cinematic triumph. Director Ava DuVernay’s »

Jessica Chastain lays down the law in new clip from A Most Violent Year: watch now

The first clip has arrived online from A Most Violent Year, and features Jessica Chastain on absolutely scintillating form, teaching David Oyelowo a little lesson in respect. Oyelowo plays the District Attorney looking into Oscar Isaac’s business dealings, and despite the latter’s unshakeable belief that he is an honest operator, it seems that things are a little murkier than that. However, his wife (Chastain) is determined to fight his corner, and lets Oyelowo know in no uncertain terms that his “disrespect” will not easily be...
