Ciff: “Miss Julie” and “The Editor”

1 hour ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Here are two films from the Chicago International Film Festival that couldn’t be more different.

First up I was Miss Julie, based on the play of the same title by August Strindber, directed by Liv Ullmann and stars Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton, and a pug. The general plot is simple, but the drama and themes, are rich and complex as it focuses on a single night where the daughter of a wealthy aristocrat seduces on of her servants. I’m not just saying this because of Ullmann’s legendary collaborations, but the film really does feel like a modern Ingmar Bergman film, particularly Through a Glass Darkly and Cries and Whispers. It is a highly emotional film about the dichotomy between sex and love and the pressures of class based societies. It is also an excellent actor’s showcase, with three powerful performances.

Matthew McConaughey Gets A ‘Stellar’ Tribute From American Cinematheque

9 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

How ironic it was that American Cinematheque, this bastion of all things honoring the history of film, would choose to give Matthew McConaughey its highest honor at a warm, funny and revealing tribute last night at the Beverly Hilton. Because among other things, McConaughey revealed he had actually only even seen two movies — ever — before the age of 18:  King Kong and Orca. And though this non-cineaste didn’t specify which King Kong, I would be willing to bet it was the 1976 remake rather than the 1933 classic.

But as the evening proved, McConaughey — whom the star’s Interstellar director Christopher Nolan referenced as “the new Paul Newman” — more than meets the Cinematheque’s definition of this award for a distinguished mid-point career of excellence and contribution to cinema.

Of course there were many mentions of what is now known as the “McConaissance,” his recent spate of career-changing film choices beginning with The Lincoln Lawyer, »

‘Interstellar’ Eyes $50 Million-Plus Launch at Box Office

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The opening of Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” is still almost three weeks away, but tickets for the space adventure are going fast.

Like all of Nolan’s projects, “Interstellar” remains cloaked in secrecy. Its plot is a mystery besides a few clues that it will center on an ecological cataclysm on earth and wormholes. It’s not a sequel, it’s not based on a young adult bestseller or a toy. Instead, it’s a wholly original concept.

After the success of “The Dark Knight” films and “Inception,” Nolan has become a brand in and of himself and “Interstellar” is performing as well as popular franchise pictures.

The picture is looking at a debut of more than $50 million based on early tracking and that number could rise as reviews roll in, television commercials become ubiquitous and word-of-mouth increases. An opening in the range of “Gravity’s” $55.8 million seems achievable, even »

Reese Witherspoon: Matthew McConaughey Has a "Two-Hour Face"

17 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Matthew McConaughey is one fine lookin' gentleman. Just ask Reese Witherspoon, his co-star in 2012's Mud. "He's handsome and he's got talent," Witherspoon told me last night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where McConaughey was honored with the 2014 American Cinematheque Award. "He's got what my friend calls a 'two-hour face'—you want to watch him for two hours. He might even have a 'six-hour face.' That hasn't been tested yet. Well, it has, hasn't it with True Detective? You could watch him all day." McConaughey's Interstellar co-star Jessica Chastain remembered the first time she saw the Dallas Buyers Club Oscar-winner on the big »

18 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Matthew McConaughey was honoured with the 28th American Cinematheque Award at the annual ceremony in Beverly Hills last night (October 21).

The 44-year-old Oscar-winning actor, who is currently promoting Christopher Nolan's sci-fi drama Interstellar, was accompanied by his wife Camila Alves and two of their three young children, son Levi and daughter Vida.

McConaughey was also joined by former on-screen love interests Kate Hudson, Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon. Current Interstellar co-stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and director Nolan were also on hand at the ceremony to support the star.

Nolan took to the stage at the event - hosted by Jimmy Kimmel - to praise McConaughy's talent, enthusing: "I'm not a believer in the 'McConaissance'.

10 Foreign Horror Movies You Must Watch For Halloween

20 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Filmax International

Subtitles. This one word strikes more fear into the heart of some than the very worst that the horror genre has to offer, but this aversion is completely unjustified. Those who complain that reading subtitles is distracting or hard work either haven’t given world cinema a chance yet or have been unlucky with their film choices.

Horror requires total immersion in order to be effective and subtitles don’t detract from this. If anything, watching a scary movie in a language you don’t understand can be even more eerie as the cultural differences make everything less familiar for the audience, taking you out of your comfort zone.

Still not convinced? While Hollywood continues to churn out the same old boring remakes and sequels, countries as diverse as Spain, Japan and Sweden are reinventing the genre, one movie at a time. Fear is a universal experience that transcends language, »

The cinema superstar keeps it humble as the recipient of the American Cinematheque Award.

This has been a big year for Matthew McConaughey. He essentially dominated the awards season, he appeared in a number of celebrated films, he starred in the critically acclaimed HBO series True Detective and his hotly-anticipated sci-fi thriller Interstellar comes out in two weeks.

Christopher Nolan praises Matthew McConaughey's quest for truth

22 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Beverly Hills — It was time for a victory lap for last year's Best Actor Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as the "Interstellar" star was honored by the American Cinematheque at the Beverly Hilton's famed International Ballroom Tuesday night. A roll call of the star's leading ladies was on hand to take part in the tribute, which closed with "Interstellar" director Christopher Nolan doing the honors of presenting the hardware. Kate Hudson ("How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "Fool's Gold"), Anne Hathaway ("Interstellar"), Jennifer Garner ("Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," "Dallas Buyers Club") and Reese Witherspoon ("Mud") all took the stage at various moments throughout the evening to tell anecdotes and present clip packages from McConaughey's early years, his romantic comedy stretch, actioners, legal dramas and, of course, the "McConaissance" of late, as it's been dubbed. When Nolan had his turn, however, he bristled a bit at that moniker. "I'm not a believer in the McConaissance, »

Matthew McConaughey Toasts Career With American Cinematheque Honor

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matthew McConaughey cleared some misconceptions and shared a few lessons he’s learned in 22 years in Hollywood at the American Cinematheque gala Tuesday at the Beverly Hilton.

“I did not get offered the ‘Titanic’ role,” said the night’s honoree, clearing that out of the way before getting to some of his lessons.

“No. 1: The same script with $10 million attached is funnier than the same script with $1 million attached to it,” he said.

Secondly, “you have to prepare, that structure helps you play,” he added relating the story of how early in his career, carried away with the thought of being a “natural actor” he didn’t read the script till he got on set. “Then I found out it was a two-page monologue in Spanish.”

The third lesson he wanted to share was about bringing his kids on set. When he was younger he’d thought that was a bad idea. »

But one way to spread positive buzz ahead of the press is to let influencers in Hollywood take to Twitter. They have no embargo. Thus San Francisco Film Society exec director Noah Cowan and filmmakers Brad Bird and Edgar Wright are already spreading the advance word that "Interstellar" is amazing, among others.  Sunday night Paramount chief Brad Grey hosted a starry New York opinionmakers screening. And Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton, Matthew McConaughey was the recipient of the American Cinematheque Ball's annual tribute.

Sean Bean Probably Won't Die in Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi 'The Martian'

21 October 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Briefly: After dying in nearly everything that's he's starred in, it sounds like Sean Bean is poised to survive a feature film. THR has word that the Lord of the Rings and National Treasure star has landed a role in The Martian, the next sci-fi drama from Alien director Ridley Scott. The film follows an astronaut (Damon) who is stranded in a Martian colony and struggles to survive, hoping he can last long enough for Nasa to organize a rescue mission. Bean will play a Nasa flight director, presumably back on Earth, trying to sort things out. Bean joins an interesting assembly of talent that includes Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Kristen Wiig and Donald Glover. The film arrives on November 25th, 2015. »

Casting: Patrick Stewart Plays White Supremacist In 'Green Room,' Natalie Dormer Goest To 'The Forest' And More

21 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With "Blue Ruin," writer/director Jeremy Saulnier made some major noise, which apparently reached the ears of some notable folks. Patrick StewartAnton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, Kai Lennox, Eric Edelstein and Macon Blair will star in his next movie "Green Room," which is now shooting. And the premise is intense. The movie will follow a young punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, and must fight for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses. And in the kind of role we've never seen him in, Stewart will play Darcy Banker, the unflinching leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest. Holy shit. The news was first broken by The Wrap. Ridley Scott's "The Martian" cast keeps growing with Sean Bean joining Matt Damon, »
