Midway Through 2015, My Best Picture Oscar Ballot & Predictions

1 July 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We've hit the midway point of 2015 so it's time to start taking the 2016 Oscar race a little more seriously. Cannes is behind us and coming up are the Toronto and Venice Film Festival announcements at which point we'll see just what kind of strategies the studios will be taking with their upcoming Oscar contenders. Over the last month or so I've been tweaking my Best Picture predictions in the background, adding a movie here and there, shuffling a few around as I see fit to the point I am now at 51 contenders. Yeah, such is the price you pay when you start predicting this early. However, this year I'm going to set out to keep track of my own personal Oscar ballot as we go through the year, offering up a list of the top five films I believe should be nominated for Best Picture in hopes of maybe keeping »

Are There Plans For An Lgbtqia Marvel Character?

29 June 2015 11:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last week marked an important landmark in the movement for marriage equality and the lives of Lgbtqia Americans, but the entertainment industry has been working for longer than that to increase the amount of queer characters in movies and television.

On Amazon, there’s Transparent, about a father (Jeffrey Tambor) who comes out as trans to her adult children. On Netflix, prison dramedy Orange is the New Black stars trans actress Laverne Cox as Sophia Burset, a trans inmate whose characterization extends to far more than just that identifier. Benedict Cumberbatch earned an Oscar nod last year playing gay code-breaker Alan Turing in The Imitation Game, and that Best Actor race’s victor, Eddie Redmayne, will take on the part of transitioning painter Einar Wegener in The Danish Girl.

Terrence Malick's Next Films Hit In 2016

27 June 2015 11:29 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Debuting at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year to mixed reviews, acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick's new film "Knight Of Cups" is looking like it won't be coming out until sometime in 2016.

Broad Green Pictures chief Gabriel Hammond tells Thompson On Hollywood that "we want to have the longest run possible not for money’s sake, but so we can get as many people to share the experience" which is why they've decided to release the picture in 2016, most likely in the Spring like Malick's last film "To the Wonder".

Then there's the question of Malick's other film, the ensemble drama set against the Austin music scene starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Michael Fassbender.

The site says there were rumours the film would be call "Weightless" which is Not the case. It also sounds like the film will Not be coming out »

Week in Review: Movie theater screens ‘Insidious’ over ‘Inside Out’, kids leave terrified

26 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

For those who have seen Inside Out, it’s a scary movie: the fear of moving away, of being unable to feel anything at all, of having your childhood memories that most defined you erased in the existential dilemma of growing up. Heavy stuff.

But it’s not quite a horror movie, and some now very unhappy kids got just that when they attended a screening of the film, only to find out that the theater had accidentally screened the horror movie Insidious: Chapter 3. Oh what’s the difference? The first five letters are the same!

The event occurred in Middletown, Ohio as reported by the city’s Journal-News, in which the writer quotes an angry parent who said she got her money back but already had her children scarred by the mistake. “Moore said images of children being tied up and murdered appeared on the screen, and the »

‘Carol’ Producer Christine Vachon on Gay Marriage Ruling: ‘It’s Extraordinary’

26 June 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Producer Christine Vachon reacted on Friday morning to the landmark Supreme Court ruling that legalized gay marriage.

“I think it’s extraordinary,” Vachon told Variety in a phone call just minutes after the decision was announced. “This Supreme Court, I was never sure about. But I could tell that this was swiftly becoming one of the things that had a certain inevitability.”

Vachon, who runs Killer Films, is responsible for some of the most high-profile movies in recent years with three-dimensional Lgbt characters, including “Boys Don’t Cry,” “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “Far From Heaven” and “Carol,” the romance starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

“When we first started making movies that had any gay or queer subject matter, we were serving audiences that were so underserved,” Vachon said. “The big shift I saw, for example, was with ‘Boys Don’t Cry. »

Utopia: Rooney Mara in Talks to Star in David Fincher’s HBO Series

24 June 2015 10:24 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Now that HBO has pumped the brakes on David Fincher's comedy series Videosyncrazy, it seems the director is forging a head on a different HBO project, the remake of Dennis Kelly's U.K. mystery thriller series, Utopia. The Wrap's Jeff Sneider broke the news on twitter that Rooney Mara is eyeing an unspecified starring role that would reunite her with Fincher for the first time since 2011's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Fincher, who intends to direct every episode of Utopia's first season, is also re-teaming with Gone Girl author/screenwriter Gillian Flynn to adapt the Channel 4 series. The story picks up when the die-hard fans of an underground graphic novel learn that the author has secretly written a sequel, launching them into their own pop-culture thriller. They find that “the new manuscript is much more than just a book, and those on the hunt »

2016 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress

24 June 2015 10:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Rooney Mara surprised many by taking home the Best Actress prize at Cannes, as many thought her co-star Cate Blanchett would take it -- or the two would share. Whether we like it or not, the moment marked the beginning of Mara's campaign for a second Oscar nomination (and potential win) for Todd Haynes' "Carol." It's just a matter of whether The Weinstein Company will campaign them both in lead, or place Mara in supporting. The latter seems more like Harvey, and if that's the case we can pretty much guarantee that one of the category's five slots will go to Mara. Who joins her? That depends on how big, small or good dozens of hopefuls' roles are in films we -- in some cases -- won't see until November. The mighty likes of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Laura Linney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, »

Rooney Mara in Talks to Join David Fincher's "Utopia" at HBO

24 June 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't know about you, but I have been itching for Rooney Mara and David Fincher to reteam on a project. I am still holding out hope for the sequels to their greatly under appreciated The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (at this point, though, that feels like a lost cause), but them doing anything together is enough to spark my interest and it looks like that is going to happen. Mara is in talks to star in Fincher's HBO adaptation of the UK series "Utopia", which will be penned by Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn. This news comes to us courtesy of The Wrap's Jeff Sneider's Twitter account, so the details of who she would be playing are not totally clear. Most speculation points to the character of Jessica Hyde (originally played by Fiona O'Shaughnessy). We also do not know how far off from the original series they will go, »

23 June 2015 8:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Whilst David Fincher's "Videosyncrazy" project at HBO may have fallen apart midway through shooting the first season, his other series in the works at the premium cabler seems to be picking up steam.

The Wrap's Jeff Sneider reports that Rooney Mara, who worked with Fincher on both "The Social Network" and the U.S. version of "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," is reportedly in talks for a role in HBO's "Utopia," the remake of the cult British series of the same name.

Fincher is working with "Gone Girl" author Gillian Flynn to adapt the project for the U.S. market. The story follows a group of people who find themselves in possession of a manuscript for the sequel to a cult graphic novel called "The Utopia Experiments".

Said comic is rumoured to have predicted the worst disasters of the last century, and the manuscript suggests future disasters on the way. »
