Felicity Jones: Oscar newbies hoping for a first citation this year

12 September 2014 1:54 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Much like I took a look yesterday at veterans in contention for Oscar love the year, today I’m going to be turning my attention to the newbies who hope to receive some awards love. As I mentioned in the last piece, this is leading up to me doing a re-ranking of the contenders in all of the major categories beginning next week, but right now it’s just going to be a preview of which rookies to the Oscar season are gearing up to hopefully make their big debuts on the awards circuit. Some are even in a position to win Academy Awards. First up is Best Actor. In this race, the highest profile would be first time nominee would be either Steve Carell for Foxcatcher or Michael Keaton for Birdman. They’ve been frontrunners to many for basically this entire season. A tiny level down are more recent »

Tiff 2014: Jennifer Garner and the cast of Men, Women & Children

11 September 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Jason Reitman’s latest film is a conversation starter.  A mirror to our time, Men, Women & Children takes a look at how our technological connections make us disconnect from one another and how we look at friendship and intimacy in a socially connected world.  Sounds like serious stuff?  Not quite.  The film picks up Reitman’s standard dramatic-meets-comedic tones and features an ensemble cast that includes Jennifer GarnerAdam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWittAnsel Elgort, and Kaitlyn Dever.

Men, Women & Children takes an intimate look at sexual frustrations that everyone – from teenagers exploring their sexual nature for the first time to the adult world of covert affairs and secret desires.

Cineplex sat down with Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, and Kaitlyn Dever to talk technology, parental guidance, and trust.

HBO Miniseries Olive Kitteridge gets teaser trailer and a premiere date

9 September 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The HBO miniseries adaptation of Elizabeth Strout’s novel, Olive Kitteridge, premiered recently at Venice Film Festival, where Frances McDormand was honored with a Visionary award.  The four part series stars Frances McDormand as the titular character and features an outstanding cast of Richard Jenkins, Bill Murray, Rosemarie DeWitt and Ann Dowd. The series is brought to screen by The Kids Are All Right director Lisa Cholodenko and tells the story of a cold abrasive Math teacher and her mild mannered husband as they live together in a sleepy coastal town in Maine.

The teaser trailer does not reveal too much about the actual plot of the miniseries but looks very promising with a gloomy yet hopeful tone featuring music performed by singer Martha Wainwright. Watch the teaser trailer below.

The first two parts of the miniseries will premiere on November 2nd 2014 to be followed the next night with the closing two installments, »

Ansel Elgort is the main attraction at 'Men, Women and Children' Toronto premiere

7 September 2014 5:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Sorry, Adam Sandler - Ansel Elgort is in vogue. The "Grownups" actor was arguably usurped by his "Men, Women and Children" co-star at the film's Toronto premiere on Saturday, with the "Fault in Our Stars" heartthrob winning loads of attention from a legion of young female fans who assembled to greet him (photos below). “I’ll give it all to Ansel,” Sandler told Variety on the red carpet. “I love that kid. He’s a sweet kid and it’s just a nice energy to be around. He wasn’t a superstar when we shot this movie but now he’s certainly having a good time.” Luckily for Elgort's admirers, the young actor stopped to interact and take pictures before heading into the venue for the screening of his latest film, a dramedy co-written and directed by Jason Reitman ("Juno," "Young Adult") that also stars Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie Dewitt, Judy Greer, »

Men, Women & Children | 2014 Tiff Review

I Tumblr For You; The Kids Aren’t Alright in Reitman’s Latest

Parents and their burgeoning teenagers battle their insecurities and repressed sexuality amidst ever present technology in an otherwise hushed community in a tightly woven all-American town. Sound familiar? On the surface, Jason Reitman’s latest effort Men, Women & Children is trying so very much to be American Beauty. There’s the hyper-sexualized cheerleaders, the stifled paternal figures and their mentally or morally absent partners, who all crash into their own devastating denouements. Unfortunately, despite his effort to create a modified updated retelling of Sam Mendes’ masterpiece for the plugged-in age, Reitman’s film is ersatz, and instantly forgotten.

Via Emma Thompson’s voiceover (which was used to far better effect in the underrated Stranger than Fiction), the audience is introduced to the close-knit residents of a Texan town. There’s the sexually frustrated married couple Don (Adam Sandler »

Men, Women & Children Review | Tiff 2014

6 September 2014 5:57 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s comforting to view the Internet as a force.  Things existed one way, the Internet came along, completely changed everything, and now—for better or worse—those things are barely recognizable.  We’re all looking down, clacking into our smart phones, so the Internet must have transformed us, right?  It’s just so powerful, and we were caught in its wake.  Current communication technology has changed us, but Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children wryly, wisely, and astutely observes our fears and insecurities long preceded our smartphones.  The film is a sharp commentary on the decay of intimacy as we, isolated in the cosmos, have now become isolated from each other.  Woven together with well-crafted storylines, sharp performances, and convincing drama, Reitman’s latest film mostly avoids being a cautionary tale and instead provides an insightful look on how online communication changes our relationships but doesn’t define our lives. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Men, Women & Children’

6 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Troubled Teens & Clueless Parents” might have made a more honest title for Jason Reitman’s “Men, Women & Children,” a carefully diagrammed thesis movie about The Way We Live Now — specifically, how our attachments to the virtual world are destroying our relationships and turning us into a race of fame-obsessed, porn-addicted e-zombies. Unfolding as a series of loosely connected cautionary tales on the perils of excessive phone, Internet and social-media use, , like a less overblown version of “Crash” for the information superhighway. Relatability often being a more reliable conversation-starter than quality, the film’s universally applicable message, savvy packaging and excellent cast could inspire audiences to log on to the Oct. 17 Paramount release.

It’s one of the unintended ironies of Reitman and Erin Cressida Wilson’s script (adapted from Chad Kultgen’s novel of the same name) that their entirely plausible theory of contemporary American behavior — namely, that our various »

First poster for Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children

5 September 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To coincide with its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, Paramount Pictures has dropped the first poster for Jason Reitman’s (Juno, Up in the Air) latest film Men, Women & Children, which we have for you here…

Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.

Toronto 2014 preview: 17 must-see films

4 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Last year, 12 Years a Slave clinched the Academy Award for Best Picture at the Toronto Film Festival. Well, that’s not actually true. In fact, you could argue that the Best Picture winner almost lost the statue at the festival. Steve McQueen’s harrowing instant classic was so instantly and universally anointed in Toronto that seeds were planted for an inevitable backlash to flower in the six months before the Oscar winner was finally announced. Ultimately, 12 Years’ biggest Oscar competition came from another Toronto film, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity. Though both films premiered at Telluride and Venice, respectively, the awards »

Jason Reitman’s ‘Men, Women & Children’ Gets A Cool Poster

3 September 2014 11:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It’s not often we get a poster seemingly free of merely Photoshopped images, but here we have the latest from Thank You For Smoking and Up In The Air director, Jason Reitman. Men, Women & Children is set to premier at the Toronto International Film Festival which starts this week. The film takes a look at how the internet and other forms of communication have changed relationships. The trailer very cleverly went dialogue free, and simply showed interactions via online messages, texts, and so forth. Hopefully the film has a genuine satirical edge and isn’t just another one of those pointless online videos that has noticed more people are using tablets and mobile phones and believes it’s something we need saving from. However, if Reitman can give a fair and balanced look at the tobacco industry, then I’m sure he can do the same again here. Plus, »

Poster for Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women & Children'

3 September 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Paramount premiered what I consider a rather ugly poster for Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children, which is premiering here at the Toronto Film Festival. I'll actually be seeing it tomorrow night and as much as this poster does nothing for me I'm actually getting a little excited to check this one out, hoping it's a big step up from the awful Labor Day. The film is based on the novel by Chad Kultgen and explores the sexual pressures of junior high school students and their parents navigating the internet's shared landscape of pornography, blogs, social networking and its promise of opportunities, escapes, reinvented identities, and unexpected conflicts. The ensemble cast includes Kaitlyn Dever, Rosemarie DeWitt, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris and Adam Sandler and it will be hitting limited theaters on October 1, expanding in the weeks following. Check out the poster below. »

Fantastic Teaser Poster For Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women & Children'

3 September 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children looks fantastic, and the new teaser poster will attest to that. According to Reitman himself, the poster is all hand drawn revisions, showing how the people of today interact (and not) with each other. The poster does leave you with somewhat of a lonely feeling, but that’s the point. Check it out below.

Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives.

Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children Poster Reminds Us That Studio Poster Art Isn’t Entirely Dead

3 September 2014 10:57 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ahead of the film’s world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival later this week, Paramount Pictures has released the first Men, Women & Children poster and it’s kind of fantastic.  Up in the Air and Juno director Jason Reitman’s new film looks to be an incredibly dark departure for the filmmaker, as it follows the story of a group of high schoolers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, communication, self-image, and their love lives.  Aside from the wonderful folks at Mondo, the world of official movie poster art has been frustratingly dull over the past decade or so.  Thankfully, Reitman understands that the one-sheet can be an extension of the film's creative expression itself, giving us this beautiful and slightly haunting Men, Women & Children poster.  More of this, please. Hit the jump to take a look at the Men, »

14 films to see at 2014's BFI London Film Festival: The Imitation Game, Whiplash

3 September 2014 5:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The full lineup for this year's BFI London Film Festival was announced this morning (September 3), and as ever comprised an impressive cross-section of the biggest hits from Sundance, Cannes and Venice, spread across the festival's main competition entries and themed strands.

Digital Spy runs down 14 of the movies you need to catch if you're in the Big Smoke for this year's festival.

1. The Imitation Game

Following strong reviews at its Telluride world premiere last weekend, this intelligently crafted biopic of pioneering codebreaker Alan Turing is one of the year's first surefire Oscar frontrunners, with Benedict Cumberbatch's lead performance singled out for particular praise.

Cumberbatch stars as the brilliant but socially awkward Turing, whose groundbreaking work in computer science and cryptanalysis proved crucial during World War II, before his homosexuality led to his prosecution and apparent suicide in the 1950s. Keira Knightley, Mark Strong and Matthew Goode co-star, with Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) directing. »

Jennifer Garner Surfs the Web in New Men, Women & Children Images

1 September 2014 2:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Judging by the film’s first trailer, Men, Women & Children is going to be a rather striking departure for Up in the Air and Young Adult filmmaker Jason Reitman.  His previous feature, Labor Day, showed that Reitman was in the midst of evolving as a director, but Men, Women & Children looks to be worlds away from his other films, teasing a deeply dark, dramatic, and intense chronicle of living life in the digital age.  Based on the Chad Kulten novel of the same name, the picture revolves around high school students and their parents, and how their relationships, self-image and quality of life are affected by the internet.  A pair of new Men, Women & Children images have been released that feature stars Jennifer Garner and Ansel Elgort, and the photos continue the sober tone that was prevalent in the film’s teaser trailer.  I’m incredibly curious to see what »

Venice Film Review: ‘Olive Kitteridge’

1 September 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

She’s “Ollie” to her husband and “Mrs. K” to the students in her middle-school mathematics class, and her daughter-in-law insists on calling her “Mom.” But audiences will forever know this unforgettable, irascible woman as “Olive Kitteridge,” thanks to the remarkably complex portrayal Frances McDormand delivers over the course of a four-hour HBO miniseries she optioned and developed herself, bringing aboard her “Laurel Canyon” helmer, Lisa Cholodenko, to direct. Even more so than 2011’s “Mildred Pierce,” .

Elizabeth Strout wrote “Olive Kitteridge” not as a traditional novel, but rather as a collection of 13 short stories — a portrait of small-town Crosby, Maine, with its minor crises and major hypocrisies, interlinked by the presence (sometimes peripheral) of Olive’s character. Such a format makes it all but impossible to reduce the Pulitzer-winning book’s nonlinear quarter-century span to an efficient two-hour narrative. Besides, the feature format is better suited to heroes with clearly »
