First Look at Tom Ford’s ‘Nocturnal Animals’ Starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal

1 hour ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After a seven-year gap, fashion designer and director Tom Ford is following up the success of his directorial debut A Single Man with Nocturnal Animals, which has just been given a first look. The thriller follows an art gallery owner, Susan Morrow (Amy Adams), who reads deeply (perhaps too deeply) into the words of her ex-husband’s (Jake Gyllenhaal) latest novel, one she believes is a threat and tool of revenge against her. Paranoia and fear ensue as Susan must discover whether or not words are just words.

Ford told EW that, in penning the adaptation of Austin Wright‘s Tony and Susan, he added much to Adams’ character — including by casting lookalike Isla Fisher as her story-within-the-story double. Ford is a man certainly interested in aesthetics, and Animals is lensed by Seamus McGarvey, whose back catalogue includes GodzillaAtonement, and We Need to Talk About Kevin.

Scott Cooper Western Hostiles Adds Interstellar Star Timothee Chalamet

21 July 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Hostiles, the Western drama that’s coming by way of Black Mass director Scott Cooper, has recruited Timothee Chalamet of Interstellar fame.

The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, confirming that Chalamet now joins a cast that boasts Christian Bale – reuniting with Cooper after Out of the Furnance – Rosamund PikeJesse Plemons and Adam Beach, who will soon be rubbing shoulders with the remainder of Task Force X in next month’s Suicide Squad.

Chalamet, meanwhile, will assume the role of Private Philippe DeJardin, a member of the military stationed at an outpost in New Mexico. From what we understand, Scott Cooper’s period Western chronicles the story of an Army captain (Christian Bale) who escorts a Cheyenne chief through war-torn territory, utterly ignoring common sense and the very near and present danger.

Penned by Cooper himself along with the late, great Donald Stewart, Hostiles is a story of a decorated »

After teaming up with Paul Thomas Anderson for their full-length “Daydreaming” music video and releasing their ninth studio album “A Moon Shaped Pool” at the beginning of May, the band has been spotlighting individual tracks from the record each Friday in a series of vignettes directed by some of the best indie and foreign film directors working today. Last week, it was “The Lobster” director Yorgos Lanthimos who executed a strange Radiohead vision, and this week it’s genre master Ben Wheatley’s turn.

The Birth Of A Nation Trailer Teases Nate Parker’s Tour-De-Force

22 June 2016 10:08 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sundance darling The Birth of a Nation has fast become one of the early dark horses going into this year’s awards circuit – and it’s little wonder why.

Set against the antebellum South, Nate Parker’s creative tour-de-force – Parker wrote, directed, produced and starred in the inspired race drama – revolves around the true story of one Nat Turner, the slave and preacher who famously staged one of the most important uprisings in American history in the Virginia of 1830.

Indeed, early buzz for The Birth of a Nation on the festival circuit ensured Parker’s passion project became the highest sale in Sundance history, and you can get a gist of the drama that awaits in October via the movie’s official synopsis. Taking point as Nat Turner, Parker leads the charge as a “literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner, accepts an offer to use Nat »

"To watch a strong man broken down is a terrible thing." Fox Searchlight has debuted the full theatrical trailer for Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation, the award-winning film from Sundance this year about a slave uprising. The first trailer was powerful, but this one is even better. The cast includes Aunjanue Ellis, Armie Hammer, Jackie Earle Haley, Gabrielle Union, Mark Boone Junior, Penelope Ann Miller and Aja Naomi King. I raved about this film at Sundance, and I'm waiting for it to connect with audiences worldwide when it opens.

Witness The Birth of a Nation in the new full-length trailer

21 June 2016 11:50 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s still a little early to be making any kind of award-season predictions, but we’re pretty confident that The Birth of a Nation will turn up somewhere once nominations role out.

A full-length trailer for Nate Parker’s Sundance hit The Birth of a Nation was just released, and it’s confirming our beliefs about this being one to watch. Nate Parker also stars in the film as Nat Turner, a literate slave and preacher who leads a rebellion against slave-owners in the antebellum south. Gabrielle Union, Armie Hammer, and Aja Naomi King also star.

Based on the incredible true story, The Birth of a Nation also takes its title from the infamously and overtly racist D.W. Griffith film of the same name, originally released in 1915. Parker’s re-imagining of the film looks incredibly powerful, and it will inevitably end up on some “Best of 2016” lists come the end of the year. »
