What's New on TV, Netflix Streaming, Digital, and DVD/Blu-ray This Week: November 24 - 30

24 November 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"What If"

This charming indie rom-com stars Daniel Radcliffe as Wallace and Zoe Kazan as Chantry, two platonic friends who maybe, kinda sorta want to be more than friends. At least Wallace does; Chantry is in a long-term relationship, and Wallace has convinced himself being "just friends" is better than not having Chantry in his life at all. Adam Driver and Mackenzie Davis co-star as Wallace's best friend and his new girl; together, their newfound lust (or it is love?) is hilarious and unstoppable.

"The Long Goodbye"/"Thieves Like Us"

Don't overlook these classic '70s films by Robert Altman. "The Long Goodbye" stars Elliot Gould as Philip Marlowe in an updated version of Raymond Chandler's novel, alongside Nina Van Pallandt, »

New on DVD, Blu-ray, and TV: 'Maleficent,' 'The Sopranos,' 'Airplane!'

3 November 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

At a loss for what to watch this week? From new DVDs and Blu-rays, to what's streaming on Netflix, we've got you covered.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Maleficent"

Angelina Jolie's delectably over the top performance as the Sleeping Beauty villain will suck you in to this surprisingly dark take on the fairy tale - dark for Disney, anyway. Elle Fanning co-stars as Aurora, the beautiful but cursed young princess who shows Maleficent the true meaning of love. Sam Riley puts on an entertaining show as Diaval, Malficent's transmogrifying raven.

"Hercules"

If you've been wondering what Brett Ratner's been up to lately, well, here's your answer. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pumped it up even more to play the mythic hero who is apparently now a mercenary for hire, along with a few other tough guys and one gal. If anything, take a gander at the fruit of Johnson's weight-lifting labor. »

Daily | Lisa Cholodenko’s Olive Kitteridge

2 November 2014 6:12 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

Olive Kitteridge, HBO's four-part miniseries directed by Lisa Cholodenko from playwright Jane Anderson’s script, is adapted from Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of 13 stories and was set in motion by Frances McDormand as, as Frank Bruni puts it in the New York Times, "her answer to an industry and a society that she finds perverse in their fixation on youth." The magnificent cast features Richard Jenkins, Bill Murray, Zoe Kazan, Martha Wainwright, Peter Mullan and John Gallagher Jr. We're collecting reviews (raves, mostly) and we've posted the trailer and a clip. » - David Hudson »

Review: The long and short of HBO's 'Olive Kitteridge'

29 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The last time HBO turned a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel set in Maine into a miniseries, it was 2005's "Empire Falls," which boasted a star-studded cast but was exactly the wrong length at four hours: too short to properly tell all of the books' stories and give the audience the necessary feeling of living among these characters, and much too long for the thin slice the filmmakers were able to carve out of the book. HBO's new miniseries "Olive Kitteridge" (it debuts Sunday night at 9) is also adapted from a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel set in Maine, and also clocks in at four hours. And though I haven't read the Elizabeth Strout book on which it's based, it certainly feels like the same mistake has been made about its length. Directed by Lisa Cholodenko ("The Kids Are All Right") and written by HBO movie veteran Jane Anderson ("Normal," "The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom »

Joaquim De Almeida And Zoe Kazan Board Political Dramedy Our Brand Is Crisis

13 October 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros.’ comedy-drama Our Brand Is Crisis has added two new stars to its line-up. The remake of the 2005 documentary continues to attract a wealth of talent, and today we’ve got news of its latest additions. Climbing aboard the political expose are Joaquim De Almeida (Fast Five) and Zoe Kazan (What If, Ruby Sparks).

Based on filmmaker Rachel Boynton’s documentary, the film will further explore what sounds to be a fascinating tale of political ideals gone awry. The story will be based around the exploits of two of President Clinton’s former political advisors, James Carville and Stan Greenberg, and their involvement in the re-election of a Bolivian president.

The casting announcements so far have addressed who’ll be playing a great deal of the main characters. Except, that is, for the Bolivian president himself. Thanks to The Wrap, we now know that role will be portrayed by De Almeida, »

Filming Begins on David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis Starring Sandra Bullock, Anthony Mackie, Zoe Kazan & Billy Bob Thornton

13 October 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Filming is underway in New Orleans on director David Gordon Green’s (“Pineapple Express,” “George Washington”) feature adaptation of the critically acclaimed 2005 documentary Our Brand Is Crisis, starring Oscar winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) and Billy Bob Thornton (“Sling Blade”).

When a group of American consultants accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected, they realize they need help. Tracking down retired maverick political consultant Jane Bodine (Bullock) to her cabin in the woods, they persuade her to lead the team—a decision they quickly come to regret, as “Calamity” Jane begins to live up to her nickname, unleashing her very own brand of chaos on the campaign.

Just as all seems lost, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), Jane’s worst enemy, arrives in town to work for the opposition. Suddenly things become personal and as the battle begins the consultants get to see Jane the legend in action. »
