2014 Gotham Award Nominations Bode Well For Boyhood And The Grand Budapest Hotel

24 October 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The 2014 fall awards season is off to a strong start with the unveiling of the nominees for this year’s Gotham Independent Film Awards. Though not as recognizable as the Oscars or Golden Globes, the Gotham Awards typically mark the start of awards season, honoring the best and brightest in independent cinema. Additionally, many of the films highlighted by the Gotham Awards go on to become Oscar frontrunners – last year’s most nominated film was eventual Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave, and past winners have included Inside Llewyn DavisBeasts of the Southern Wild and The Hurt Locker.

This year looks to be no different, with assumed Oscar contenders like Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s technically dazzling Birdman and Richard Linklater’s ambitious 12-year project Boyhood in the mix. Excitingly, Wes Anderson’s brilliant The Grand Budapest Hotel, released way back in March, also made the cut, meaning that its »

Miles Teller, J.K. Simmons on 'Whiplash,' Drumming and Stoking Passion

24 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Much of the power of the extraordinary film "Whiplash" comes from the interaction between two remarkable performers. This is a star-making role for Miles Teller, an actor who has previously appeared in films like "Rabbit Hole" and the "Footloose" remake, and he's soon to make a further splash in the big-budget "Fantastic Four" reboot and "Divergent" sequel.

J.K. Simmons may be known to most as the dad from "Juno" or J. Jonah Jameson in the previous "Spider-Man" series, but his roles in a series of films by the Coen Brothers, or his inimitable portrayal of Vernon Schillinger on HBO's "Oz" has ably demonstrated his capacity to play almost any role. With a fearsome, nuanced performance, Simmons' role of Terrance Fletcher should, with any justice, garner J.K. a nod at Oscar time.

Moviefone Canada spoke to the two performers during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

This film's director, Damien Chazelle, »

Broken Projector: Characters Pushed to the Edge

24 October 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s been a hell of a week, so it would be great to talk about films that make us happy. Unfortunately, that’s not the show we prepped. Instead, we’ve got a dissection of characters who are pushed to the breaking point, inspired by Miles Teller destroying himself to become the next Buddy Rich in Whiplash. Who knew jazz drumming was so brutal? We’ll discuss people incrementally becoming disillusioned, forget to talk about Oldboy and then connect Falling Down to Gamer Gate in one seamless move. Plus, a 10th anniversary appreciation of what Saw did right as a low budget horror movie made in an astonishingly short amount of time (18 days, no kidding). You should follow the show (@brokenprojector), Geoff (@drgmlatulippe) and Scott (@scottmbeggs) on Twitter for more on a daily basis.

Whiplash – The Review

23 October 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Whiplash has been one of the most talked about films of the year, and with good reason! Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons give incredible performances that leave audiences in awe.

Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) is an ambitious young drummer fighting against all odds to be the best. His parents are certainly not on board, yet Andrew will do everything in his power to achieve greatness. While attending a music conservatory on the east coast, Andrew lands a once in a lifetime opportunity to play for Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons), a professor known for having one of the best jazz ensembles in the country. Andrew soon becomes obsessed with mastering his craft while Terence is dead set on either breaking his spirit or making him the best drummer he can possibly be.

From the first moments of this film it’s clear that there is a lot of talent on the screen. »

The Hype Cycle: Contenders Arrive in Theaters

23 October 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Excuse the absence in this column for the last few weeks. I’ve been covering the Chicago International Film Festival, catching up with a few of the Foreign Language Oscar contenders while there. Now however, many of these movies are finally making their ways into theaters, providing an extra wrinkle into the race as both critics and fans weigh in on their quality.

1. Birdman

Birdman has finally arrived, and it’s everything the critics and the public have imagined. The film had a solid opening on just four theaters in its opening weekend, earning half a million dollars, and Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis and more have all been making the talk show rounds to promote this weird, goofy film everyone loves.

Kris Tapley went right out and handed Keaton the Oscar for Best Actor, writing “The emotional spectrum of this character, Riggan Thompson — who all actors will identify with at the end of the day, »

Will Oscars slap studs Eddie Redmayne, Miles Teller, and Jack O'Connell?'

23 October 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Is Eddie Redmayne too young to win Best Actor? That question has been on my mind ever since he started generating Oscar buzz for "The Theory of Everything." It would be hard to deny his technically and emotionally grueling performance as Als-afflicted physicist Stephen Hawking, but even though Redmayne is on the right side of 30 – he'll be 33 by the time Oscars are handed out next February – he would still be the eighth youngest winner ever in the category. -Break- Gold Derby Oscar Mvp: Miles Teller bleeds for awards attention in 'Whiplash' And what about twentysomethings like Miles Teller ("Whiplash"), Jack O'Connell ("Unbroken"), and Ellar Coltrane ("Boyhood"), all of whom are 100/1 underdogs in our Best Actor predictions despite their films being major Oscar hopefuls.  The last time the Oscars even nominated a lead actor under 30 was in 2010: Jesse Eisenberg for "The Social Network...." »

Birds & the Bees…Boyhood Leads 24th Gotham Independent Film Award Noms

23 October 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Deemed as his career best, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood leads all nominations for the 24th Gotham Independent Film Awards with winks in the Best Feature, Best Actor (Ethan Hawke), Best Actress (Patricia Arquette) and Breakthrough Actor (Ellar Coltrane) while Birdman, Nightcrawler, Under the Skin and Dear White People technically place second with two noms a piece in the five possible categories. Arguably 2014′s most prolific indie film in Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash failed to move the five-critic panels in the Best Film category and sans a Best Supporting category, means Miles Teller receives Best Award nom but J.K. Simmons will just have to wait it out for the Indie Spirit Awards to acknowledge his perf.  A special Gotham Jury Award has already been awarded to the ensemble performance of the players of Foxcatcher (Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, and Channing Tatum) shrewd Vanessa Redgrave perhaps didn’t get enough screen time »

Gotham Awards nominations kick off the Oscar season with a huge 'Boyhood' boost

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

The Independent Filmmaker Project officially fired the starting gun on the film awards season as always this morning with the announcement of this year's Gotham Awards nominees. Unsurprisingly, the most high-profile indie in the race — "Boyhood" — drew the most nominations with a whopping four mentions, including Best Feature. That's extremely high for the Gotham Awards and it sends IFC's campaign sailing into the season with a huge burst of wind. Speaking of revving the campaign engine on an early year release, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" landed in the Best Feature category. Two years ago Wes Anderson's "Moonrise Kingdom" won that category but still didn't end up with a Best Picture Oscar nomination. Can Fox Searchlight find better luck? And speaking of Searchlight, "Birdman" landed Best Feature and Best Actor nominations. Fully expected. Filling out the Best Feature category was Ira Sachs' beautiful "Love is Strange" and Jonathan Glazer »

Gotham Nominees: Boyhood vs. Birdman vs. Budapest

23 October 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

The Gotham Awards juried nominations have recently surplanted the ancient Nbr as the first real awards nomination/wins of the film year. That it happens in October is more than a little crazy, but what'cha gonna do? The New York centric film prizes, think of it as the Spirit Awards's East Coast Cousin albeit with far fewer prizes will be held on December 1st. Since they only have six categories and four separate juries (composed of critics and programmers), multiple nods aren't as easy to come by as they are at other shows but a handful of films managed it: Boyhood, Birdman, Dear White People, Nightcrawler, and Under the Skin.

Best Feature 

 

Birdman Boyhood Grand Budapest Hotel Love Is Strange Under The Skin

Very happy to see the intensely moving Love is Strange, in constant danger of being undervalued, show up. Especially since it didn't show up anywhere else. 199 films were eligible for these honors. »

'Boyhood' Leads 2014 Gotham Award Nominations

23 October 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's no real surprise to see Boyhood topping the this morning's Gotham Independent Film Awards nominations with four. The film is likely to lead the Spirit Award nominations as well. It will be the year's most highly touted independent feature, make several top ten lists and probably earn plenty of Oscar nominations if not a few wins. It's also no surprise to see Birdman get a couple noms. In fact, the only nomination I find particularly interesting here is the nomination for Oscar Isaac for his role in J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year. Primarily because critics have yet to see it and because the nomination committee clearly enjoyed Nightcrawler, but saw fit to nominate Isaac for A Most Violent Year, but not Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler. It's also a little disappointing to see Tom Hardy might end up being ignored even for independent awards for his performance in Locke, »

'Boyhood' leads Gotham Awards nominations

23 October 2014 7:41 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Richard Linklater's Boyhood was nominated for four Gotham Independent Film Awards, including a nod for Best Feature. Also competing for best picture are Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Love Is Strange, and Under the Skin. While the Gothams celebrate only independent film, they are one of the first notable—if not the most reliable predictor—year-end movie awards. Last year, the Gothams rewarded Inside Llewyn Davis and Short Term 12's Brie Larson, in addition to Matthew McConaughey for Dallas Buyer's Club. Boyhood was also recognized for Ethan Hawke in the Best Actor category, Patricia Arquette in Best Actress, »

23 October 2014 7:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Gotham Independent Film Awards set a 2014 race for best feature that includes “Boyhood” and “Birdman,” vying for the title with “Love is Strange,” “Under the Skin” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”

Richard Linklater’s drama “Boyhood,” 12 years in the making, led the nominations list with four, including acting nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and Ellar Coltrane. “Birdman,” Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s story of a has-been actor trying to make his comeback on Broadway, snagged an additional nom for lead actor Michael Keaton.

Jonathan Glazer’s scifi feature “Under the Skin” also did well, nabbing a thesping nom for lead Scarlett Johansson. Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”), Bill Hader (“The Skeleton Twins”) and Miles Teller (“Whiplash”) also are among the actors in the running for trophies.

Why We Haven't Seen Anything from the Fantastic Four Movie

21 October 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot finished shooting awhile back, but we have barely seen anything from the film. This is incredibly surprising, especially when we see stuff from Batman v Superman and Star Wars: Episode VII leaking almost every day. Fox must actually threaten to kill people if they leak anything. I got banned from Facebook for three days because of a set photo of Thing that I posted. I'm really curious to see what Trank and the studio have done with this classic Marvel superhero team.

In a recent interview with producer Simon Kinberg, we learn the reason why we haven't seen anything official yet. This is what he said to ComicBook.com:

"We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make »

Simon Kinberg on when we might expect to see footage from The Fantastic Four reboot

21 October 2014 2:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg has spoken about the upcoming reboot The Fantastic Four whilst promoting the home entertainment release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, specifically when we might expect to see the first footage from the film…

“We’re putting it together now, and one of the important things, because this Fantastic Four is a reboot, and is such a different tonality and vibe from those other films, we want to make sure that the first thing we put out really expresses the voice of the movie, and isn’t compromised by not having visual effects ready, or anything like that. I don’t actually know when [a trailer is] coming out, but I’ve seen all the footage from the movie. I was there for pretty much the whole shoot. It is a very different film from the others, and one that I think is very different from other superhero movies. It’s a very emotional, »

Miles Teller talks “surprises” in The Fantastic Four

Miles Teller has been discussing the forthcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four with MTV, and promises fans that they are going to see a different version of the franchise than was last seen in cinemas… “I think we’re going to surprise people for sure,” says Teller, “because it’s completely different from the ones that came out a couple years ago.” And while the pressure of tackling such a beloved franchise might be intimidating for some, Teller seems to be taking it all in his stride… “If you’re making a movie for the fans,...
