One of the Scariest Horror Villains of the Season is a Drum Set

2 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What defines a horror movie villain? Someone (or something) that is emotionless, relentless, haunting and makes you bleed. By this definition, Whiplash gave audiences one of the most terrifying villains released in the horror month of October, but it may not be the character you expect. There is no question that J.K. Simmons’ Fletcher is relentless as he pushes Andrew (Miles Teller) to excel at his chosen instrument. But it is the instrument itself that is the true villain of this story – the drum set. It’s emotionless, relentless, constantly haunts Andrew and (as you can see) makes him bleed. Andrew is drawn to the drums in a way that has him constantly coming back for more – no matter how much pain and anguish the drums cause him. Andrew cannot keep himself from the pull of playing, but he’s not simply in it for the love of the music; Andrew wants to be the best.

Oscars news: Is Eddie Redmayne ('The Theory of Everything') unbeatable for Best Actor?

3 hours ago | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

. Sasha Stone takes us inside "last night’s packed academy premiere for 'The Theory of Everything'" and reports "it became clear that Eddie Redmayne has a good chance of unseating the two frontrunners in the Best Actor race, Michael Keaton for 'Birdman' and Benedict Cumberbatch for 'The Imitation Game.' The way the Best Actor race usually works is that it’s inextricably linked to Best Picture. This is the case almost every year but especially lately. The winning Best Actor is almost always in a Best Picture contender and when he isn’t he’s usually an overdue veteran whose number has at last come up." Awards Daily  -Break- Oscars predictions update: 'Interstellar' will win 5 Oscars, experts say Anthony D'Alessandro profiles "Whiplash" star Miles Teller: "Teller, who’s a rock drummer in his spare time, thirsted for something that connected to his mus..."' »

Can 3D Really Turn 'Insurgent' into a Hitc How about these 8 Character Postersc

23 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't tell if I'm supposed to call this movie The Divergent Series: Insurgent or just Insurgent. I'm also not sure it matters, though the one thing I am most curious about is whether or not this film is going to make all that much money, especially after the truly awful Divergent, which even Miles Teller said filming it made him feel dead inside. The first movie made only $288 million on an $85 million budget. You take into account theater splits, prints and advertising and there isn't too much left, at least not so much that this becomes some major blockbuster event franchise. Add to that the 41% RottenTomatoes score and we aren't exactly talking about a movie that's operating on full cylinders. So I guess the next question is to wonder if more people will even turn out to see Insurgent or if the sour taste left by the first one »

Exclusive motion poster for Insurgent's Ansel Elgort debuts online

28 October 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley are back together, but this time not as love interests. Let’s hope their Fault In Our Stars chemistry had cooled off a bit before Insurgent started shooting.

That’s right. Ansel is back for the train-jumping sequel to Divergent, reprising the role of Caleb, the brother of Tris (Woodley). It’s not usual to see a franchise’s designated heartthrob (Theo James) playing second fiddle to the main character’s brother, so Four (James) will definitely need to step it up this time around. He has a lot of tweens and teens to win over – again.

Hazel and Gus – I mean, Shailene and Ansel – return to theatres for Insurgent on March 20, 2015. They’ll be joined by Theo JamesKate WinsletOctavia Spencer, and Miles Teller.

Soundtracking: Whiplash

28 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

At least audiences have the music of Whiplash to give them some relief over 100-plus minutes of bloodied hands and psychological trauma that were unleashed this past weekend.

Or maybe not.

The newest film from the young tandem of writer/director Damien Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz takes a selection of jazz standards and turns them into a battle ground between aspiring jazz drummer Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) and his perfectionist mentor Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons).

As Fletcher pushes Andrew to his physical and psychological limits as a musician, it is the repetition and perfection of a collection of standards that becomes the film’s musical theme.

Ironically, it is the repetition of a simple melody – one that Fletcher is seen performing on a piano in a jazz club in the film – that would serve as the foundation for Hurwitz score with fellow composer Tim Simonec.

But it is the »

Pitt's Fury is no Inglourious Basterds

26 October 2014 9:23 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Brad Pitt was box-office gold in Inglourious Basterds but audiences don't seem to find his latest stab at playing a Us soldier in the heat of battle in WW2. quite as compelling.

Fury, which stars Pitt as the leader of a tank crew fighting its way across Germany in the spring of 1945, captured nearly $2.6 million in its first four days in Australia.

That.s below the $3.05 million debut in 2009 of Quentin Tarantino. brutal drama, which wound up earning a potent $13.8 million.

True, Fury.s writer-director David Ayer is no Tarantino. Ayer wrote Training Day and directed the action movies Sabotage, End of Watch and Street Kings.

And Fury.s ensemble cast of Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, Michael Peña and Jon Bernthal isn.t as stellar as Basterds. Christoph Waltz, Mélanie Laurent, Michael Fassbender, Eli Roth and Diane Kruger.

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, »
