The Weinstein Company Moves Up Awards Contender 'Carol,' Pushes Back Bradley Cooper-Starring Chef Comedy

1 hour ago

Read More: Cannes Review: Todd Haynes' 'Carol' is a Masterful Lesbian Romance Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara As awards season approaches at an ever-more rapid rate, The Weinstein Company has made a few changes to their upcoming schedule, including an earlier release date for Todd Haynes' awards favorite and Cannes hit,  "Carol."

Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, the feature will now go up directly against the final "Hunger Games" film, "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2," but should benefit from an earlier start than was originally planned. TWC has also pushed back their Bradley Cooper chef comedy, once known as "Adam Jones," from October 2 to October 23. The film has also been retitled "Burnt," marking its second title change -- it was originally known as. »

Watch: Bug-Crunching 'Goodnight Mommy' Trailer Will Give You Goosebumps

1 hour ago

Read More: New Directors/New Films: 'Goodnight Mommy' Is an Arthouse Shocker Best Seen Cold Masks, twins, forestry and bugs have all been in horror films before, but that doesn't mean they'll ever get old. Written and directed by Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz, "Goodnight Mommy" uses all of those tropes to great use, making for one unnerving horror film. Susanne Wuest, Elias Schwarz and Lukas Schwarz star. The official synopsis reads: "In the heat of the summer lays a lonesome house in the countryside where nine year old twin brothers await their mother's return. When she comes home, bandaged after cosmetic surgery, nothing is like before and the children start to doubt whether this woman is actually who she says she is. What ensues is a terrifying struggle with fatal consequences on par with 'The Shining' and 'Dead Ringers.'" "Goodnight Mommy" will be released on September 11. Check »

'BoJack Horseman' Creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg's Got Plans For a Darker, Weirder Season 3

2 hours ago

When Indiewire sat down with "BoJack Horseman" creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg at the TCA summer press tour this week, he was pretty excited. Netflix had just announced that the animated showbiz satire about a former sitcom star/talking horse would be coming back for a third season.  Read More: Review: 'BoJack Horseman' Season 2 Brings the Comedy, But Finds True Depth in Its Questions While of course Bob-Waksberg declined to offer specifics as to what he's got planned for "BoJack's" return next year, he was able to talk about the big picture, in regard to how much further they might take the strangely existential comedy and its complicated characters, while also explaining why, exactly, he doesn't want to tell anyone how to feel about it.  So how are you feeling today? I'm feeling great. It's a great day. Yeah, did you know Season 3 was coming? There had been conversations. There have been inklings of it. »

Watch: #Tbt 'The Shining' Trailer Will Drive You to Bloodlust

3 hours ago

Read More: Watch: Here's What 'The Shining' Would Look Like If It Were Directed By Wes Anderson I had nightmares about "The Shining" before I'd even seen it. As a kid, I wasn't a fan of horror films. Some may credit this fear to an "overactive imagination." My father, being the dedicated psychiatrist he was, developed and executed a series of social experiments to get to the root of this cowardly behavior. He would measure just how little information concerning a particular horror scenario he could divulge to me before I flew off into wild fits of screeching and slapping my ears. This was, for him, hilarious. The most striking images my father described to me were that of two twin girls standing bloody in a hallway and the deteriorating body of a nude elderly woman come back from the dead. I knew nothing about Kubrick or "The Shining," and »

Watch: War Lord Idris Elba Reigns Over Harrowing 'Beasts of No Nation' Teaser

3 hours ago

Read More: Tribeca: Cary Fukunaga On 'True Detective,' Netflix's 'Beasts of No Nation' Release, and Stephen King's 'It' While Cary Fukunaga broke out in the mainstream for his acclaimed, Emmy-winning direction of "True Detective" Season 1, indie cinephiles have been fans of his for quite some time, given the powerful vision on display in his two feature films, "Sin Nombre" and "Jane Eyre." Fortunately, the success of HBO's crime drama has given Fukunaga his biggest canvas yet in his new drama, "Beasts of No Nation," which Netflix acquired in March in a headline-making $12 million deal. "Luther" favorite Idris Elba stars as a ruthless war lord who takes in a young boy, Agu (newcomer Abraham Attah) and trains him to become a child solider. The film is based on the novel by Nigerian author Uzodinma Iweala, and if the grueling teaser trailer above is any indication, the drama should be a harrowing, »

Reality Checks: Can 'Amy' Lead a Documentary Box Office Revival?

4 hours ago

Review: Asif Kapadia's Amy Winehouse Documentary 'Amy' is Heartbreaking and Extraordinary There may be more documentary films and more documentary outlets than ever before, but there are fewer documentaries breaking out in movie theaters. Gone are the days when a single year would bring forth several nonfiction films with multi-million-dollars in ticket sales (see five years ago, for example, when such record-setters as "Babies," "Waiting For Superman," "Exit Through The Gift Shop," "Catfish," and "Inside Job" all grossed over $4 million.) But this year, Asif Kapadia's "Amy," a portrait of late singer Amy Winehouse, is performing at the box office like it's 2009. After four weeks in release, the movie has earned over $5.5 million and is still going strong in hundreds of theaters. Buoyed by excellent reviews (an 85 score on Metacritic and A- on Criticwire) along with a pop culture icon as its central subject, distributor »

The indie favorite -- and star of the widely hailed "Short Term 12" -- looks to be entering the awards season race again with her turn in Lenny Abrahamson's upcoming "Room." Based on Emma Donoghue's novel of the same name, the new drama, which will premiere at this year's Tiff, gives Larson a big new role to dig into, an already exciting prospect made all the more interesting by the film's first teaser trailer, which lets viewers into just enough of the world of "Room" to really hook them. The offcial synopsis reads: "'Room' tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Tremblay), a spirited 5 year old who is looked after by his »

20 hours ago

The Next MacGyver Competition continued its year-long effort toward increasing the visibility of female engineers in the media with an afternoon of pitches, panels and a celebration of the five winners of a two thousand contestant challenge. Read More: 'MacGyver' Creator Lee Zlotoff On Women In Engineering And Finding a New Female Hero Julie Ann Crommett, the pioneer of Google's efforts toward improving the perception of engineering and computer science in the media, kicked things off with the opening remark that "the number two reason why teenage girls, both in high school and college, weren't pursuing the career was their perception of it. Not surprisingly, they were least likely to follow it, because of the stereotypes that they were seeing on screen." Changing these perceptions into those aimed at inspiring and motivating young women toward entering the field would be the focus of the afternoon's pitches. The five »

Designed by New York-based twin animators Joy Buran and Noelle Melody, stylized as Joy + Noelle, the poster sees film reels stack up to form a rather inedible cinematic cake.  "We are so excited to have Joy and Noelle as our official poster artists this year," said Woodstock Executive Director and co-foudner Meira Blaustein. "Not only are they festival alumni, having their animation shown here before, but they perfectly encapsulated the Sweet 16 celebration aspect that is our theme this year.

'Sense8' Season 2: Why We're Still Waiting To Hear Good News from Netflix

22 hours ago

Here's a bit of inside baseball: Every once in a while, people in the writing-about-the-news game write about news that hasn't happened yet. Every major newspaper has a file of pre-written obituaries for the famous but physically fragile. "Dewey Defeats Truman" gets printed, just in case. And if a relatively predictable event lurks on the horizon, many folk today might spend a half-hour the night before an announcement seems likely to pre-write a story so that when the news comes, it can be quickly distributed.

The washed up wizard is in rough shape now that Hermione has left him for Viktor Krum. Hopefully there is still a little magic left and Ron can get it together. The very least you can do for him is to watch the video above and wish Ron — and Harry — a "Happy Birthday. »
