30 Actors Who Consistently Appear in This Decade's Best Movies

19 August 2016 6:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the last decade, a lot of great actors and actresses have emerged as truly special modern talents. There are a handful of these performers that we can almost always count on to deliver truly great performances. But is there a way to determine who is the most consistent? Well, a new study at least tried to, and the results are very interesting.

The study was done by Medium and aimed to see which actors consistently appeared in the highest-rated movies. The site used data from the Taste movie app, which features ratings of movies to gather their data. As for the criteria? The time period was from 2006 to 2016, and the actor or actress had to have appeared in at least 5 movies during that time period, and had to have a leading or major supporting role in those movies. Here is how they did their calculations.

"After rounding up these actors, »

Refinery29’s Female-Driven YouTube Channel Is A Laugh Riot

12 August 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It took years of working in network television, but Julie Miller finally created the rarest of media opportunities: An insurrection.

“Riot is an uprising,” said Miller, who serves as creative director for the YouTube channel, which is backed by Refinery29. “It’s a space for women to make comedy for everyone and not feel like they have to skew male.”

Fifteen years ago, Miller was double-booked as an intern at Saturday Night Live and Comedy Central. “I was interning for Tina Fey at Weekend Update, and I spent the other half of the week at Comedy Central assisting Jessi Klein in development,” she said. “I came to New York and immediately worked for two of the best female comedians, so the stakes were really high.”

6 Must-Watch Movies & TV Shows on HBO Now in August 2016: ‘Brooklyn,’ ‘The Aviator,’ and More

31 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

New Original Programming:

“Meet the Donors” (8/1)

“Dios, Inc.” - Season 1 Finale (8/5)

“Hitchcock/Truffaut” (8/8)

Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the La Rams” (8/10)

“El Negocio” -  Season 3 Premiere (8/12)

IndieWire Pick: “The Night Of” (Series Finale) (8/28)

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.

Is Nicolas Winding Refn Betraying His Own Talent?

10 July 2016 9:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Two weekends ago, Nicolas Winding Refn’s glitzy surreal horror film “The Neon Demon” opened on 783 screens, and when the weekend was over the box-office tally was far scarier than anything in the movie. Presented as a “mainstream” crossover thriller, the film had grossed just $589,000, with a mind-bendingly low per-screen average of $752. When a movie that’s striving to be a work of art falls on its face commercially, there’s no shame in that failure. The history of cinema is dotted with great films that didn’t, at first blush, find their audience, and then become appreciated over time. Yet in this case, the failure may contain a lesson.

The reason that Amazon Studios shoved “The Neon Demon” into so many theaters in the first place is that the relatively young company was betting — reasonably, I would say — that the movie, on its gorgeously bloody Day-Glo surface, was studded »

Nicolas Winding Refn on the Female Vision of ‘The Neon Demon’ and Merging with Elle Fanning

22 June 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The Neon Demon will eventually elicit some strong reaction from every viewer, and Nicolas Winding Refn has made clear that it shouldn’t be any other way. Our review was among the most negative we posted at Cannes, speaking for both its immediate grade and the force of its criticisms, and our own Brian Roan experienced something that, had it gone just a bit further, would be plastered across every one of the film’s TV spots and Blu-ray cases. Winding Refn seemed rather amused when I showed him the tweet on my phone, though his verbal response was terse: “I have two kids, so I know what it’s like.”

Despite the stated desire to provoke, there’s a clear humility when discussing The Neon Demon‘s development, and this writer-director — one who’s often held as a symbol of masculine-artist impulses run rampant — often admits that his film »

'Drive' Gets A Hilarious Fan-Made Sequel Trailer For The Uber Generation

19 May 2016 8:54 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Nicolas Winding Refn's neo-noir crime thriller "Drive," about a Hollywood stunt performer/getaway driver (Ryan Gosling) who gets involved in a job that puts himself, his next door neighbor (Carey Mulligan) and her son (Kaden Leos) in danger, garnered critical acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for Best Film and Best Direction at the British Academy Film Awards. Enough time has past for the film, or at least the concept of a pensive, toothpick-fiddling Ryan Gosling driving a car, to have fully entered the cultural ether, making "Drive" ripe for contemporary parody. Check out the video above.

Cannes Film Market 2016: ‘There’s Caution in the Air’

10 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Brie Larson, Mila Kunis, Jake Gyllenhaal, Julianne Moore, Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain, Jared Leto, Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan and maybe Robert De Niro topline big buzz projects at the 2016 Cannes’ pre-sales market which started coming together late last week, in an all-time down-to the-wire market flurry.

The huge question though is whether Martin Scorsese’s mob bio “The Irishman,” starring Robert DeNio, budgeted at a reported $100 million and in turnaround at Paramount, can be packaged fast enough to be brought to the market at Cannes.

Even without it, after a robust Berlin, “this is another strong market here because of the multitude and diversity of projects,” said Ivan Boeing of Brazil’s Imagem, predicting that Cannes would be “big and busy.”

FilmNation’s Glen Basner agreed: “It doesn’t feel like there are many huge movies, but it seems like there are plenty of films offered »

Carey Mulligan to work with Dee Rees

Murtada here. Carey Mulligan is continuing her quest to collaborate with the most interesting directors. After Luhrmann, the Coens, McQueen, Refn and Vinterberg, it’s time for Dee Rees (Pariah, HBO’s Bessie). The two are planning to work on an adaptation of Hillary Jordan’s 2009 novel Mudbound. Rees will write and direct, Jason Clarke, Garrett Hedlund and Straight Outta Compton’s standout Jason Mitchell will co-star.

Despite what Mulligan claimed her agent told her after watching Suffragette (2015); 'Darling, you're lovely in it, but blue jeans film next”, it’s another period piece. Although this time it’s set post WWII in Jim Crow’s South. Mulligan will play a city bred woman who is trying to raise her children on her husband's Mississippi Delta cotton farm, and her entanglements with two soldiers returning home from the war - one of them is white and her brother-in-law, and the other is black, »

Variety has reported details on the cast for Mudbound, the latest effort from acclaimed director Dee Rees (Bessie), with Carey Mulligan (Far From The Madding Crowd), Jason Clarke (Terminator Genisys), Garrett Hedlund (Pan) and Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton) all in talks to star.

Scripted by 24 and E.R. writer Virgil Williams, the film is based on the acclaimed book by Hillary Jordan, which tells the story of “around a city worker in a WWII-torn country who relocates his family to a failing Mississippi farm and is forced to overcome insurmountable hardships, including his brother’s return from war.”

Director Rees won praise for her last film, Bessie, the television adaptation of the life of Bessie Smith, the legendary blues performer from the 1930’s. Star Queen Latifah won a SAG award for her performance, as well as a Golden Globe nomination. Rees won a Primetime Emmy for her directing on the film. »
