'the bomb': Film Review | Berlin 2017

11 February 2017 1:08 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

“Now I am become death, destroyer of worlds,” is the quote that J. Robert Oppenheimer famously thought of when he presided over the first successful atomic bomb test back in 1945. Over seventy years later, we are still very much on the brink of such mass destruction, with roughly 15,000 nuclear weapons held by eight countries, not to mention those nations now trying to become nuclear powers themselves. And let’s not forget whose hand is currently on the button in the United States.

In the experimental montage film the bomb, author Eric Schlosser – whose 2014 book Command and Control »

Leave it to the Merc With a Mouth to muscle his way into Hollywood’s annual awards season, surprising just about everyone in one fell swoop. As the nominations begin to pour in, Tim Miller’s irreverent Deadpool has received nods from the Golden Globes, all the while being shortlisted in both the Best VFX and Makeup and Hairstyling departments ahead of the 89th Academy Awards.

That’s quite the feat for any feature film, let alone an R-rated superhero movie based on one of the lesser-known characters from the Marvel vault. No wonder Ryan Reynolds is so optimistic about the mercenary’s cinematic future.

Now, we can add another nomination to Deadpool’s collection – and it’s a doozy, for Tim Miller’s no-holds-barred actioner has scooped up a nomination for a Writer’s Guild Award, joining Arrival, Fences, »

Writers Guild Snubs and Surprises: Fresh Hope for ‘Deadpool’ and ‘Loving,’ But No ‘Silence’

4 January 2017 12:54 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With a cluster of frontrunners and a wide-open field of potential Oscar entrants, the 2017 Writers Guild nominations provide more intelligence about where the Oscars could be heading.

The trio at the head of the pack continue to be “La La Land,” “Manchester by the Sea,” and “Moonlight.” Getting a much-needed late-inning boost are modern western “Hell or High Water” and biracial romance “Loving.” Both are critics’ faves that opened earlier in the year.

However, the WGA and the Academy differ on their categories this year. The WGA says “Moonlight” and “Loving” are original screenplays; for the Oscars, they would compete as adapted. That means that Noah Oppenheim’s “Jackie,” and scripts by writer-director Mike Mills (“20th Century Women”) and two non-signatory films that aren’t WGA-eligible, “The Lobster” and “Toni Erdmann,” might have a shot at landing an Oscar nod.

 

Conversely, that means some of the WGA’s Adapted Screenplay »
