“Spotlight” takes the top prize from SAG to stay alive in the Oscar race

1 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Over the weekend, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG, for those who don’t know) did their best provide both questions and answers in regards to the Oscar race. On the one hand, much of what we suspected to the the Academy’s likely favorites remains as such, but on the other…there are certainly some potential upsets brewing. SAG was just one of the precursors over the weekend, as the Art Directors Guild and Ace Eddie announced their winners as well, which you can see below, but the SAG victors are what we’ll be focusing on today. So, let’s chat about that guild’s results! SAG managed to both clear up and confuse on Saturday. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Brie Larson wrapped up their Oscar wins in Lead Acting categories, while Alicia Vikander likely became an unbeatable frontrunner as well in Best Supporting Actress. As for Best Supporting Actor, »

Read More: Watch: New Trailer For Tiff Crowdpleasing Math Drama 'X+Y' With Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins & Rafe Spall Formerly titled "X+Y" when it debuted at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, Morgan Matthews' coming-of-age drama finally hit theaters this summer under the title "A Brilliant Young Mind." Starring Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins and Rafe Spall, the film is a narrative take on Matthews' 2007 documentary "Beautiful Young Minds." Both films earned acclaim for their authentic depictions of what it's like living with autism.  Butterfield stars as Nathan, an autistic teenage math prodigy being mentored by his unconventional and anarchic teacher, Mr. Humphreys (Spall). When it becomes clear that his talents are enough to earn him a place on the British team competing at the highly-revered International Mathematics Olympiad, Nathan heads to Taiwan for an unforgettable, life-affirming journey.  In an »

First Poster For Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg Arrives

22 January 2016 7:36 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The first poster for Disney’s The Bfg is here.

The talents of three of the world’s greatest storytellers – Roald Dahl, Walt Disney and Steven Spielberg – finally unite to bring Dahl’s beloved classic “The Bfg” to life.

Directed by Spielberg, Disney’s The Bfg tells the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country.

The Bfg (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the Bfg prefers Snozzcumber and Frobscottle. »

First Poster: Steven Spielberg's "The Bfg"

22 January 2016 6:37 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Following the first trailer a few weeks ago, Walt Disney Pictures has now revealed the first poster for Steven Spielberg's anticipated adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic story "The Bfg".

Mark Rylance plays the Big Friendly Giant, a 24-foot tall and endearingly dim-witted creature with a keen sense of smell who is quite unlike his much bigger and scarier bretheren. When a precocious 10-year-old girl (Ruby Barnhill) from London comes into his life, he soon forms a friendship with her,

Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, Jemaine Clement, Rafe Spall and Bill Hader also star in the film which opens July 1st.

Second Opinion – The Big Short (2015)

20 January 2016 9:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Big Short, 2015.

Directed by Adam McKay.

Starring Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Brad Pitt, Finn Wittrock, Max Greenfield, Melissa Leo, Rafe Spall, Hamish Linklater, Tracy Letts, John Magaro, Jeremy Strong, Marissa Tomei, Karen Gillan, Stanley Wong, Byron Mann, Margot Robbie, and Selena Gomez.



Four denizens of the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000’s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight.

Adam McKay at the Oscars you say? The same Adam McKay who helped introduce the world to Ron Burgundy, Mark Wahlberg being funny and the infamous and hilarious vocal styling of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s delightfully crude rendition of Boats and Hoes? One and the same. The rule usually states that comedians (actors, writers or directors) just don’t usually win the big prize, bar a few exceptions »
