Woody Harrelson Doles Out Some Life Advice In Lbj Clip

15 September 2016 2:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rob Reiner’s Lbj is set for its world premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival, hopefully capping off a spectacular fest that has seen its fair share of Oscar-contenders. The movie stars Woody Harrelson as the acerbic President Lyndon Johnson, who served as Vice President under John Kennedy (Jeffrey Donovan) and finally became President himself following Kennedy’s assassination in November, 1963.

Native Texan Woody Harrelson seems an ideal actor for the role of Johnson, and he proves it in this most recent clip from Lbj. Recounting a childhood experience to some members of his staff, Harrelson draws out Lbj’s famous humor and insouciance, without making him seem like a caricature. That’s a hard line to walk, given the bravado of Johnson himself, but it appears that this actor is more than up for the task.

How far this film will go into Johnson’s legacy is an open question. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Lbj’

15 September 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The movies, in case you didn’t notice, are having an Lbj moment. It began two years ago, when Tom Wilkinson played President Lyndon B. Johnson in “Selma” as a cagey but courtly political warrior whose hand was forced by Martin Luther King Jr. More recently, the Broadway drama “All the Way” was made into an HBO movie — 20 years ago, it would have been big-screen awards bait — with Bryan Cranston reprising his edgier, closer-to-the-bone performance as Lbj (more cussed, better accent, truly astonishing makeup). Cranston has made a specialty of playing decent men in scurrilous armor, and his Ljb was a cunning vulgarian blowhard saint, with a bark worse than his bite — a cracker-barrel curmudgeon.

The first time you see Woody Harrelson in “Lbj,” a biopic directed by Rob Reiner, you’re aware of how latexy his make-up job is, especially compared to Cranston’s (at moments, he looks like »

15 September 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Coinciding with its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival today, a first look clip has arrived online from director Rob Reiner’s upcoming biographical political drama Lbj which stars Woody Harrelson in the titular role as President Lyndon B. Johnson; take a look below after the official synopsis…

Lbj follows the political upheaval that Vice President Lyndon Johnson (Woody Harrelson) faced when thrust into the presidency after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy (Jeffrey Donovan). Johnson struggles to heal a distraught nation while simultaneously, against all odds, getting JFK’s historic Civil Rights Act passed through an incredibly divided Congress.

Lbj features a cast that also includes Richard Jenkins, Bill Pullman, Kim Allen, Michael Stahl-David, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jeffrey Donovan, Doug McKeon, and Michael Mosley.

First Trailer for 'The Promise' Featuring Oscar Isaac & Christian Bale

9 September 2016 1:13 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"He wants us to help his family escape... We have to help him." Survival Pictures has unveiled a trailer for an indie drama called The Promise, set during the last days of the Ottoman Empire. The film follows a love triangle between Michael, a brilliant medical student, the beautiful and sophisticated Ana, and Chris - a renowned American journalist based in Paris. Starring Oscar Isaac as Michael, with Christian Bale as Chris, and Charlotte Le Bon as Ana. Also featuring Angela Sarafyan, Shohreh Aghdashloo, James Cromwell, Jean Reno, Rade Serbedzija & Michael Stahl-David. This seems like a big, bold attempt to tell the story of the Armenian genocide featuring with an impressive cast, which actually makes this worth watching. This also doesn't look so much like an indie, rather a very large production. I'm curious to see it. Here's the first trailer (+ promo poster) for Terry George's The Promise, direct »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Viral Campaign Launches, New Secrets Teased

30 January 2016 3:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi opened earlier this month, it arrived with a surprise teaser trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which many believed was a sequel to the 2008 thriller Cloverfield, a movie that arrived wrapped in just as much mystery. 10 Cloverfield Lane has since been called a distant cousin to Cloverfield. The two films are connected, but this new thriller isn't a direct sequel. Some believe it is more of an anthology film held under the Cloverfield banner. Whatever it is, it is arriving under a shroud of secrecy this March. And like Cloverfield, it is getting an extensive and somewhat bewildering viral campaign. In a recent interview, star Mary Elizabeth Winstead teased what the movie is actually about.

Speaking with EW, the actress opened up every so slightly about the tense drama, which takes place in a bomb shelter. She can't tell us much about the plot or its twists and turns. »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Is Not 'Cloverfield 2', But Part of an Anthology?

16 January 2016 2:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, fans were treated to a surprise trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which many have speculated is a sequel to the 2008 hit Cloverfield. There is still very little we know about the story, but since both 10 Cloverfield Lane and Cloverfield were produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot, many assume there is some sort of connection between the two. Earlier today, a user cleared the air about this mysterious project, revealing that it may not be a direct sequel, but it is set in the same Cloverfield universe.

"This film was originally made under the names Valencia and The Cellar for Paramount's Insurge division (a subsidiary for films made for under 5 million dollars like The Devil Inside), and when Paramount closed it down, this movie (shot and completed) was thrown out to the wind and orphaned. Paramount bought it back up and had Daniel Casey and Damien Chazelle do some re-writes »
