Watch: 8-Minute Video Essay Investigates The Morality Of Denis Villeneuve's 'Sicario'

21 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the more purely visceral filmgoing experiences of last year was the hard-hitting “Sicario,” which was the rarest of things: a corpse-littered cartel land thriller that didn’t inevitably resort to dopey action movie clichés to get its points across. The film was also another shattering work from the ever-exciting Denis Villeneuve, whose artistic preoccupations clearly gravitate toward the murky intersection of what it means to be moral and what it means to survive. The director’s last few films, including “Incendies,” “Prisoners,” and “Enemy,” all have their own unique and respective vibe. And yet all are also fundamentally concerned with the duplicitous nature of surfaces and the emotional cost of violence. In “Sicario,” FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt) learns very quickly that she can’t trust anyone or anything she’s being told: the truth is but an illusion in this bleak world, shifting randomly and without »

12 Comedic Performances the Oscars Overlooked

10 February 2016 8:00 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Listen. We’re not necessarily saying the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doesn’t honor the greatest performances in film, but getting an audience to laugh can often be more difficult than getting them to cry. While there’ve been winners like Diane Keaton for “Annie Hall” and Marisa Tomei for “My Cousin Vinny,” they’re still the rare exceptions to the rule. Here’s to more Oscars for funny people! Below, we present twelve overlooked comedic film performances. Emily Blunt, “The Devil Wears Prada”Can you believe Blunt achieved instant-classic status as an acid-tongued assistant to Meryl Streep’s fashion mogul—serving devastating snark and the film’s most quotable one-liners—and didn’t get Oscar recognition for her comedic brilliance? “No, I shan’t.” Eddie Murphy, “Trading Places”Although the best work of Murphy’s career may be as the uproarious Donkey in “Shrek,” the Academy »

10 Actresses Who Made An Unexpected Splash In Popular Franchises

9 February 2016 1:22 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

From comic book romps to space-bound cinema sagas, fans are very protective of their favourite franchises. Most likely whoever is reading this has a strong idea of who should play what in the multitude of graphic novels, fiction ranges, TV shows and movie reboots yet to be squeezed from the cash cow’s teat.

It causes consternation on a volcanic level when a creative team is chosen to adapt the property, and you can practically feel the lava spattering when the casting is announced. Often there’s a warm welcome – I don’t think many would have had a problem with Emily Blunt as Black Widow. Then when she dropped out and Scarlett Johansson entered the frame there weren’t exactly riots in the streets.

Producers tread a fine line between getting someone photogenic in to ensure the male demographic get their asses on seats and honouring the source material. »

Watch: Jake Gyllenhaal Blows Up His Life In The New Trailer For ‘Demolition’

4 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

French Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée has been around. He directed Emily Blunt in “The Young Victoria" and got good notices with “Cafe De Flore,” but all it took was “Dallas Buyers Club” to score several Oscar nominations and then win two acting Academy Awards, and then Vallée soon found himself to be one of the most in demand directors working today. “Wild” with Reese Witherspoon followed, and right up on its heels is “Demolition,” the filmmaker’s collaboration with Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts and more. Read More: The 30 Most Anticipated Films From 2016 We've Already Seen “Demolition” centers on a investment banker (Gyllenhaal) who loses everything and tries to put back the pieces of his life through cathartic destruction.

As we now know, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt's little family is expanding! E! News confirmed last week that the Hollywood couple are expecting another little one in the near future, making their daughter Hazel Krasinski a big-sister-in-training.

Fox Developing Murder Mystery ‘A Simple Favor’ as Movie (Exclusive)

29 January 2016 3:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox 2000 has bought movie rights to Darcey Bell’s upcoming murder mystery “A Simple Favor,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The pre-emptive deal for “A Simple Favor” was closed Thursday and has not yet been set with a producer. The story has been pitched as being in the vein of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 novel “Gone Girl” and Paula Hawkins’ 2015 debut “The Girl on the Train” — two best-selling thrillers in which a female protagonist disappears from a seemingly perfect relationship, part of the “domestic noir” genre.

“A Simple Favor” centers on three small-town characters: a mommy blogger, her best friend who disappears suddenly and the latter’s husband. The story includes betrayals and reversals, a dead body and the revolving question of who is duping whom.

Bell is a pre-school teacher in Chicago. The publication rights to “A Simple Favor” have been sold as part of a two-book to Harper Collins for »

How a Bruce Lee Origin Tale Is Taking Flight With Chinese Money and Abundant Diplomacy

28 January 2016 4:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Despite clouds and the threat of rain, San Francisco spreads gloriously before director George Nolfi and the cast and crew of “Birth of the Dragon.” From their perch high atop Twin Peaks, they are shooting the climactic shot of the “kung fu fable” — their Steve McQueen-ish hero riding his motorcycle off to a new life.

When the sun shoots suddenly through the gloom, Nolfi shouts for another take: “Get the motorcycle down here! There’s light on the city!” And, indeed, just as doubles for Billy Magnussen and his girlfriend (played by Jingjing Qu) roar past, sunlight splashes across the panorama and the golden dome of City Hall behind them.

“That was great, right?” the usually more reserved director Nolfi calls across the hillside. “That was bad ass!”

The makers of “Birth of the Dragon” have much to celebrate, beyond Mother Nature’s gift. Their origin tale on the »
