Although it is very light on action and violence, A Most Violent Year features powerful performances in a slow-burning drama about a good man trying to make an honest living while everyone around him seems to be happy to cut corners anyway they can. Written and directed by J. C. Chandor (Margin Call and All Is Lost), the film features an incredible ensemble cast including Oscar Isaac, Jessica Chastain, David Oyelowo, Alessandro Nivola, Albert Brooks, and Elyes Gabel. Set in 1981’s New York City, the film follows Abel Morales (Isaac), the owner of the small Standard Oil, a heating oil […] »

Interstellar director Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy) isn’t afraid to give viewers what they can’t understand. Interstellar stars Academy Award-winning actors Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and Oscar-nominated Casey Affleck and Jessica Chastain.

Out of all the Avengers Marvel has mined from its vast catalog of characters, there’s one in particular whose vocal fanbase has decried the comic studio. Why? For not providing her with her own solo movie, that’s why!
Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow (aka Natasha Romanoff) was introduced in Iron Man 2 as Stark’s eye candy assistant before she unleashed her true potential on the hallway of Goons at the Hammer factory. Her Romanoff resume is steadily increasing, but not on account of her own standalone ventures. She’s appeared in Iron Man and Captain America’s solo pics, and kicked major Chitauri butt with them in The Avengers. So, will she ever get her own movie?
In another of Collider’s interviews with the Avengers, Johansson reveals that the idea of a Black Widow movie isn’t as far from Marvel’s minds as we might »

Winner of the National Board Of Review award for Best Film of 2014, J.C. Chandor's "A Most Violent Year" is another excellent entry in the director's increasingly impressive filmography. While there were a lot of comparisons made between Chandor's film, starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, and "The Godfather," Chandor notes there are some key differences. "There were things we were playing off of and looking back on it, one of them was maybe too cute," he told us in a recent interview. "In '81, when 'A Most Violent Year' was set, in New York City 'The Godfather' and Michael Corleone were a huge influence culturally on Oscar Isaac’s character. And especially as a businessman in Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island, and Westchester, you're doing immigrant business and he's going to know about 'The Godfather,' right? But if you look at these movies they’re totally different. »

With Meryl Streep playing its lead, self-funded (and deluded) singer Florence Foster Jenkins, Stephen Frears’ latest already looks a contender to follow Philomena into awards reckoning, even as the cast continues to take shape. The latest to join the jamboree is Nina Arianda. According to Deadline’s scoop, she’s billed to play Agnes Stark, “a sexy showgirl” trying to work her way up the social ladder with her husband’s help.While still an unfamiliar name in film circles, Arianda has been making waves on Broadway. Her turn in David Ives’s two-hander Venus In Fur won her critical acclaim and a Tony Award. She’ll reunite with her on-stage co-star Hugh Dancy for season three of Hannibal. She appears next on the big screen alongside Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy in The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby.Frears' film will chronicle the life of Jenkins (Streep), an heiress and »

Well, the early speculation/rumors turned out to be correct, as this new clip from "Jurassic World," which just made its debut on MTV, demonstrates. Chris Pratt's character in the film is indeed able to lead the raptors, and that means we're going to see a scene where he leads them in against other dinosaurs and just typing that makes me feel like I'm nine years old because Holy Cow That Sounds Awesome. Basically, that's the mood I hope Colin Trevorrow is able to strike with the entire film. He was a little kid when he saw "Jurassic Park," and now he's making his own film set in that same world. He's been handed the toys to play with, and now we'll see if he can take that excitement he felt when he sat in that theater and if he can translate it to an experience that will turn »

A Most Violent Year - Lionsgate - Blu-ray and DVD Director: J.C. Chandor Cast: Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, Albert Brooks, David Oyelowo, Alessandro Nivola. Full cast + crew Despite what the title implies, A Most Violent Year isn't a movie about a bloodbath. At least not a literal bloodbath. It's all about how an entrepreneurial businessman (Oscar Isaac) in 1980s New York is trying to make a competitive but honest living in the heating oil industry. However, everyone around him, including his wife (Jessica Chastain), isn't so inclined to keep things honest, and the clash of ethics between the two makes for a smartly written, beautifully shot, and superbly acted drama about what it takes to hold on to the American dream.

Jessica Chastain seemingly became famous overnight. While she shot “Wild Salome” with Al Pacino earlier (the movie still hasn’t come out stateside, but you can read our review here), 2011 marked The Year Of Chastain. Suddenly, she had a string of movies coming to cinemas: Terrence Malick’s “The Tree Of Life,” Jeff Nichols’ “Take Shelter,” Ralph Fiennes’ directorial effort “Coriolanus,” John Madden's "The Debt," and, of course, “The Help,” which earned the actress her first Academy Award nomination. She was everywhere, and in high demand, soon garnering work and acclaim in films by Christopher Nolan, Kathryn Bigelow, John Hillcoat, J. C. Chandor, and more (later this year she has films coming out by Guillermo del Toro and Ridley Scott).

When Hollywood merges with Broadway, there are always fender-benders.
Just ask Harvey Weinstein.
As the movie aficionado and awards maven steered “Finding Neverland,” his first venture as a lead theater producer, toward the Great White Way, eyebrows raised in his wake.
He switched press agents. He swapped out the lead actors. He entirely scrapped an earlier version of the musical with a different creative team. When in spring 2014, he landed a much-coveted spot for the show on the Tony Awards telecast, naysayers tut-tutted that the play hadn’t even begun performances out of town, much less confirmed its Broadway run. Besides, Jennifer Hudson, the star of the Tonys segment, wouldn’t even be appearing in the actual stage production.
“I was criticized for Jennifer,” Weinstein recalls. “But this song (‘Neverland’) has been downloaded a million times, and all over the world people now know ‘Finding Neverland.’ In the movie business, »

Did you know Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac went to school together? They did, and we've got video proof below. In the relatively short span they've been acting, the two have appeared in a growing number of truly fantastic films from some of the best directors on the planet, but they didn't appear together until 2014's superb A Most Violent Year. In it, Isaac and Chastain play a married couple who each have very different ideas of what it's going to take to elevate their oil business to the next level. Isaac wants to do everything above board and play by the rules. As you can probably guess, Chastain's character doesn't really care about the rules. It's a great movie with great performances from both, and while it was their first...

One of the best films of 2015, A Most Violent Year was about New York City in its most crime-ridden year of 1981. Oscar Isaac starred as ambitious Colombian immigrant Abel Morales, who began his career as a truck driver for a heating oil biz run by a mobster whose daughter Anna (Jessica Chastain) he eventually married. Abel took over ‘Standard Heating Oil’, and grew it quickly – but too quickly in the eyes of his competitors. As the movie opened, Abel and his attorney (Albert Brooks) are on the verge of a big move – borrowing a million and a half dollars to buy two oil tanks in a prime area of Queens. With 30 days to secure the cash needed to close the deal, it’s a risky investment, but if all goes according to Abel’s plan, he will eventually be able to store and move fuel on a larger scale. But »
