J.K. Simmons and Spider-Man: Actor Hints at J. Jonah Jameson’s Return

21 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When it comes to superhero movies, fans are sticklers. They don’t want the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films to link to the Tobey Maguire films. That wouldn’t make sense. They get angry when a studio casts the Human Torch as Captain America. How can one actor be both? The lone exception in all of this might […]

The main focus of Ramin Bahrani’s new film 99 Homes is evictions due to the repossession of homes by banks after their owners failed to make payments. It is an upsetting and difficult subject, and this film manages a heartbreaking  [ Read More ]

Review: 'Brooklyn' is a romance that hits those with a heart hard

27 January 2015 2:36 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City — Sometimes the elements of a movie just gel together so well and you find yourself enjoying the ride so much that you instantly forgive the material for any of its inherent limitations. Case in point: John Crowley's new drama "Brooklyn," which premiered Monday night at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. After 20 minutes I'd written the not-so positive words "earnest" and "cutesy" in my notebook. Almost an hour and a half later I was so moved by what had transpired I was fighting back the tears. The picture isn't the achievement expected festival grand prize jury winner "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" is, but it's a damn good movie on its own terms. "Brooklyn" is based on the popular novel by Colm Tóibín and was adapted by another celebrated author, Nick Hornby ("About a Boy"). It begins in the early 1950s where Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) doesn't see »

Edgar Wright Revising Script For Oliver Twist Sequel Dodge And Twist; Eddie Redmayne And Andrew Garfield Rumored To Star

26 January 2015 2:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The folks over at Film Divider (via Coming Soon) have revealed the specifics of what British filmmaker Edgar Wright has been up to since he bowed out of Marvel’s Ant-Man last year. In a surprising – and utterly exciting – turn of events, it transpires that Wright has recently submitted a script revision for Sony’s Dodge And Twist. If the name hasn’t rung a bell, then perhaps you weren’t paying attention during English.

The project originated back in 2013 when the studio jumped on The Odd Life Of Timothy Green scribe Ahmet Zappa’s original spinoff idea. Described as a steampunk sequel to Charles Dickens’ classic work of literature, Oliver Twist, Zappa’s take would pick up 20 years after the events of that novel. Two decades on, Oliver is now a police officer who is still at loggerheads with the Artful Dodger, who now attempts to steal the crown jewels. »

Review of Michael Shannon and Andrew Garfield's 99 Homes - Sundance 2015

26 January 2015 9:51 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Michael Shannon and Andrew Garfield are two actors that you really can't go wrong with. They are both incredibly talented. Bringing them together to star in a film seems like it would be pure magic, and in the film 99 Homes, it is. Both actors bring their A-game for this movie and give us some of their best and most compelling work to date.

99 Homes is an intense drama that kept me on the edge of my seat. It deals with some heavy subject matter, set in 2008 during the housing market crash in which many people were losing their homes. The story centers on a man named Dennis Nash (Garfield), who is having a hard time making ends meet due to lack of work. Even though he's a hard working dad with the best intentions for his family, he can't stop his home from going into foreclosure. He's kicked out of »

25 January 2015 8:51 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Emma Stone's dress at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards was a elegant ensemble with a long sheer train that landed her on several best-dressed lists, including our own. However, Stone discovered during the show that the Dior Couture number featured one major flaw: it nearly killed her co-star Naomi Watts.

The VOD business model disincentivizes theaters and hurts filmmakers, the ’99 Homes’ star tells TheWrap Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman

Same-day video-on-demand releases undermine theatrical sales, actor Michael Shannon told TheWrap Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman on Saturday during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

“Then none of the theaters want to pick the movie up, because they’re like, ‘Why are we going to show your movie if you’re just going to let everybody watch it at home?'” Shannon said, citing a film he presented at the festival in 2014 as an example.

Hollywood’s lack of diversity is an open secret, “99 Homes” writer-director Ramin Bahrani said on Saturday during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

“Listen, everyone knows: There’s a horrific lack of diversity in Hollywood,” Bahrani told TheWrap Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman while discussing the Oscar nominations–revitalized hot-button issue. “There should be a lot more female writers, female directors.”

The New Yorker Presents, Ep. 1.01: “Pilot” is the most interesting premiere in recent memory

24 January 2015 11:15 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The New Yorker Presents, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”

Directed by Jonathan Demme

Released January 15, 2015 by Amazon

Of all the recent pilots released by Amazon, The New Yorker Presents is easily the most interesting. A half hour smorgasbord of content, this first episode is completely fascinating in terms of its form and what that could mean for both Amazon’s original series and television in general going forward.

The conceit of The New Yorker Presents is simple: a little bit of this, a little bit of that. This first episode contains a short film, a conversation/interview with an artist, a short documentary and a recorded performance of a poem. The ultimate success of a series like this is similar to that of a sketch comedy in that episodes and individual segments will be hit or miss week-to-week. Obviously, the goal becomes bringing together a collection of talent that is of »
