Gillian Anderson Is David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust In New ‘American Gods’ Teaser

6 hours ago

Given that I’m still behind on “Master Of None,” “Fargo,” and “The Leftovers” (among a handful of others), my bandwidth for new TV shows at the moment is pretty small (and only going to narrow with new seasons of “Bloodline” and “House Of Cards” coming up). But it looks like I should carve out some space for yet another show….

T.J. Miller Won’t Be Returning For ‘Silicon Valley’ Season 5

7 hours ago

Fans of HBO‘s tech comedy “Silicon Valley” got a mix of good news and some surprising bad news today. The good? The hit program has been renewed for a fifth season. The bad? Erlich Bachman will not be back.

The network has revealed that T.J. Miller, who plays the scruffy entrepreneur on the series, will not be returning, though it seems both sides are amicable about the situation.

Christopher McQuarrie Says ‘Mission: Impossible 6’ Is Going To A “More Emotionally Dramatic Place”

8 hours ago

Across five films, “Mission: Impossible” has unapologetically established itself as the espionage franchise where you come to see big spectacular stunts all loosely connected by a story you’ll forget about five minutes after you leave the cinema (seriously, can anybody break down the plot of ‘Rogue Nation‘ without looking it up?). Audiences pay to come see Tom Cruise do the, well, impossible, but Christopher McQuarrie wants to try and change things up for the next installment.

Liam Neeson Is Deep Throat In First Clip From Watergate Drama ‘The Silent Man’

8 hours ago

It says something about the current political climate that the events of Watergate, which led to the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, still remain timely and relevant. And it’s probably safe to say that likely won’t change in the months ahead, which will make the arrival of “The Silent Man” all the more resonant.

Liam Neeson takes a break from cracking skulls to lead the drama as Mark Felt, the man known as Deep Throat, the Watergate whistleblower.

Sergei Loznitsa’s ‘A Gentle Creature’ Is An Astonishing, Incendiary & Brutal Indictment Of Modern Russia [Cannes Review]

9 hours ago

Like an endless, 200-degree Fahrenheit fever dream, Sergei Loznitsa’s “A Gentle Creature” disorients your frame of mind with the force of a thousand demons shredding it apart. In systematic and cinematically dazzling fashion, Loznitsa’s nihilistic riff will drag you to a circle of hell that makes Dante’s “Inferno” look like a love sonnet, and you’ll walk out of the film feeling woozy, defeated and utterly destroyed, in that order.

Patty Jenkins Says She Wasn’t The Right Director For ‘Thor: The Dark World’

10 hours ago

Say what you will about DC Films, but at least in the ongoing rivalry with Marvel, they’re the first of the two studios to have a woman directing one of their tentpole projects (Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will helm “Captain Marvel,” which opens in 2019). Patty Jenkins is the filmmaker behind DC’s “Wonder Woman;” however, had things gone differently she would’ve been the director of Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World.” She was the first one to board the project, but eventually exited over “creative differences,” with Alan Taylor replacing her (and he would go on to detail the “wrenching” experience of making the movie).

Alfonso Cuarón Talks Embarrassment Of ‘Great Expectations,’ Approaching ‘Harry Potter’ With Realism & More [Cannes]

10 hours ago

The day after the massive celebrity-filled 70th anniversary party at the Cannes Film Festival, Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón strode into the Buñuel amphitheater at the Palais de Festival to give a Masterclass. “First, let me say that I am very honored to be here and be a part of Cannes’ 70th anniversary,” he began. “I’m proud to say that last night the party ended in the proper Mexican way: with tequila and a mariachi band.

Sony’s Silver Sable & The Black Cat Movie Lands Director

11 hours ago

Marvel Studios still stands as the most organized of the cinematic universe studios, but Sony (who they’re teaming up with on this summer’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming“) is coming in hot on their heels. They’ve already landed Tom Hardy for next year’s “Venom,” and now their Silver Sable and the Black Cat movie is heating up.

Gina Prince-Bythewood has been tapped to helm the female-driven superhero flick, which will be titled simply, “Silver And Black.” While perhaps best known as the filmmaker behind “The Secret Life Of Bees” and “Beyond The Lights,” Prince-Bythewood has recently completed the pilot for Marvel’s Freeform series “Cloak & Dagger,” and I would presume her work impressed the right people.

Aziz Ansari In No Rush To Make ‘Master Of None’ Season 3

11 hours ago

With a wealth of critical accolades showered upon Aziz Ansari for “Master Of None” season two, the co-creator of Netflix‘s hit dramedy certainly has no shortage of options. In a strange way, Ansari is at a crossroads not unlike one his character Dev faces in the current season, when he’s given the opportunity to host “Clash Of The Cupcakes” for seven seasons.

Director Josh Boone Says ‘The New Mutants’ Will Be “A Full-Fledged Horror Movie”

12 hours ago

20th Century Fox seems to be tossing out the playbook and embracing new things with their comic book properties. They let Ryan Reynolds and co. go R-rated for “Deadpool,” and were rewarded with a massive box office success. That paved the way for this year’s moody and affecting “Logan,” also R-rated, but a picture that played more like a character drama than a superhero film.

First Trailer For ‘Get Shorty’ TV Series Starring Chris O’Dowd & Ray Romano

12 hours ago

It’s not easy to get the tone of Elmore Leonard‘s books translated to the big screen, but 1995’s “Get Shorty” was one of the few times where everything clicked. Ironically, the sequel “Be Cool” showed what happens when you get the material totally wrong. Now, Epix is going to try and make “Get Shorty” work as a TV series, and the first taste has now landed.

This week, Netflix will launch the final season of “Bloodline,” but if you’re still hankering for a moody familial drama, you can spend your summer with “Ozark.”

Created by Bill Dubuque (“The Judge“), and starring Jason Bateman (who also directed), Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, and Skylar Gaertner, the show follows a family who tries get out from some very bad business.

Netflix Cancels ‘The Get Down,’ Baz Luhrmann Says He’s Focused On Movies

13 hours ago

As Netflix grows, the longterm endgame for the service to rely less on licensing content from Hollywood studios and production companies, and more on continuing to pursuing their own diverse slate of original programming. The part of this plan that doesn’t get discussed much is that if Netflix doesn’t want to litter their service with one-season programs, they have to keep funding their series, even if the viewership numbers are low (like, seriously, is anyone watching “Flaked“?).

Jeremy Renner & Elizabeth Olsen Solve A Murder In First Trailer & Clip For ‘Wind River’

14 hours ago

Hawkeye and Scarlett Witch are back! Okay, it’s not a Marvel movie, and to be honest, we’d much rather see the great talents of Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen take on fare like “Wind River,” and this upcoming action flick certainly looks great.

The directorial debut of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (“Sicario,” “Hell Or High Water“) is a crime thriller following an animal control agent who teams with the FBI to solve a murder on a Native American reservation.

Robert Pattinson “So Happy” To Follow ‘Good Time’ With New Claire Denis & Antonio Campos Films [Cannes]

15 hours ago

Cannes — A unique trend at this year’s Cannes Film Festival is the number of well known, Hollywood “industry” actors who are being rewarded after years of taking one challenging indie film movie role after another. In particular, Nicole Kidman (numerous), Colin Farrell (“The Killing of a Sacred Deer”), Kirsten Dunst (“The Beguiled”), Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”) and Elisabeth Moss (“The Square”) have delivered impressive performances in films that are resonating with audiences and critics on la Croisette this year.

Josh & Benny Safdie’s Electrifying & Energetic ‘Good Time’ With Robert Pattinson [Cannes Review]

15 hours ago

The botched bank robbery is a well-worn genre staple, but has a heist ever gone quite so wrong to such electric, propulsive effect as in Josh and Benny Safdie‘s “Good Time“? Bouncing wildly off the screen like “Crank” with an arthouse pulse and the soulful eyes of a particularly loyal puppy, it’s a feat of sonic, visual and narrative engineering that confirms the Safdies’ arrival, after “Heaven Knows What,” as the beat filmmakers of the millennial generation.

Crime Goes Backwards In Trailer For Netflix’s ‘Shimmer Lake’ Starring Rainn Wilson & Benjamin Walker

24 May 2017 1:48 PM, PDT

Whichever side of the Netflix debate you’re on, there’s no arguing that sometimes they’re not the greatest advocates of their own original programming. Case in point: “Shimmer Lake.” The movie drops on the service in two weeks, and it’s only now getting a trailer, and something you might’ve only noticed if you were paying attention to YouTube.

Rainn Wilson and Benjamin Walker star in the directorial debut of screenwriter Oren Uziel (“22 Jump Street“), which tells a crime story with a narrative twist.

Here’s Why The Man From Another Place Didn’t Return For The ‘Twin Peaks’ Revival

24 May 2017 1:30 PM, PDT

Last spring, David Lynch offered up fans one major piece of “Twin Peaks” information — the full, 217 names long cast list for the revival. From main roles to cameos, we found out every face we’re going to see across the full eighteen episode return, but there was a key figure missing: Michael J. Anderson aka The Man From Another Place. While he only appeared in four episodes of the original series, and in the prequel film, “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me,” his impact was such that many assumed he would return.

Léonor Serraille’s ‘Jeune Femme’ Is A Triumphant Feature Debut Full Of Spark & Wit [Cannes Review]

24 May 2017 12:37 PM, PDT

A woman pleads “Open the door!!” in a tiny corridor, banging away with her fist and head. Such is the frenetic opening scene of Léonor Serraille’s “Jeune Femme” — the story of Paula as played by an unforgettable Laetitia Dosch in a star-making turn — and not only is it a fitting metaphor for Paula’s predicament throughout the course of the film, but the zest, zing and determination felt in those opening seconds ripple throughout the entire next hour and a half.

Director Chad Stahelski Talks ‘John Wick 3,’ Promises More Cool Reveals Over Big Budget Setpieces

24 May 2017 11:59 AM, PDT

When it comes to sequels, there’s always a balance between taking the big studio check and running with it, expanding the scope and size of the franchise, or being considered in how the world of the series is expanded. This winter’s “John Wick: Chapter 2” had the right touch of opening up the underground universe of assassins that we glimpsed in the original, and allowing the story to include more international locations, but never to the point of obscuring the film’s most important focus: John Wick.
