‘Foxcatcher’ Hopes to Land Three Actor Nominations, a Rare Event

12 November 2014 8:18 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Oscar buzz continues to follow Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May and its screenings at various film festivals, including the Telluride, Toronto and New York film fests. The film is set to close AFI Fest Thursday and open in Theaters on Friday. Sony Pictures Classics will be pushing for three of its stars to land Oscar nominations: Channing Tatum and Steve Carell for lead actor and Mark Ruffalo for supporting. If the film was to score all three nominations, it would be one of 15 films to land that many actor nominations and the first film since 1991’s Bugsy.

The biographical crime drama about Benjamin Siegel, the infamous gangster known as Bugsy, landed Warren Beatty a lead actor nomination for his role as Bugsy and supporting actor nominations for Harvey Keitel and Ben Kingsley. None of the actors won. »

Barnes & Noble 50% Off Criterion Sale 2014! Top Titles to Buy!

10 November 2014 9:36 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It's that time of year again and it's time to update the list for the second half of 2014 as Barnes & Noble has just kicked off their 50% off Criterion sale and as impossible a task as it is to cut things down to just a few titles, I have done my best to break Criterion's titles down into a few categories. Hopefully those looking for box sets, specific directors or what I think are absolute musts will find this makes things a little bit easier. Let's get to it... First Picks I was given the Zatoichi collection for Christmas last year and being a collection that holds 25 films and another disc full of supplementary material it is the absolute definition of a must buy when it comes to the Criterion Collection. It is, once again, on sale for $112.49, half off the Msrp of $224.99, and worth every penny. I spent the entire year going through it. »

Daily | Andrei Zvyagintsev’s Leviathan

7 November 2014 6:49 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

We posted a first round of reviews of Andrey Zvyagintsev's Leviathan (Leviafan) when it premiered in Cannes and went on to win the best screenplay award. Now that Russia's horse in the foreign language Oscar race is opening in the UK, it's high time for a second round. The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw: "Zvyagintsev combines an Old Testament fable with something like Andrei Tarkovsky’s Sacrifice; it also has something of Elia Kazan’s On the Waterfront or Robert Rossen’s municipal graft classic All the King’s Men…. Stunningly shot and superbly acted, this is filmmaking on a grand scale." We've got more reviews, the trailer and a clip. » - David Hudson »

PopWatch Confessional: Which classic (or 'classic') film have you never seen?

24 October 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator was released 30 years ago this weekend—but our Hillary Busis hadn’t seen it until this past week. (Of course, she's not alone; everyone has at least one shameful gap in their pop cultural knowledge.

Elvis, The Movie Showing at Super-8 Marlon Brando Movie Madness November 4th in St. Louis

23 October 2014 7:45 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

 

There have been many TV bios of Elvis Presley but Elvis, The Movie, the once-elusive 1979 feature starring Kurt Russell, was the first and is still the best. An 18-minute condensed version of Elvis The Movie on Super-8 sound film will be screened at Super-8 Marlon Brando Movie Madness on November 4th at The Way Out Club – (yes, we’re aware that Elvis, The Movie has nothing to do with Marlon Brando, but it’s the variety that makes it the madness!)

When Elvis died August 16 1978 at age 42, it sent shock waves around the world, comparable to the deaths of Princess Diana or Michael Jackson in later decades. A carnival atmosphere developed in Memphis as thousands of mourners gathered around the gates of Graceland and sales of Elvis’ music skyrocketed.  The 3-hour epic Elvis The Movie, produced by Dick Clark for the ABC network premiered 18 months later on February 11 1979 and, despite »

Reeve Receives Standing Ovation at Oscar Ceremony (Video)

Christopher Reeve Foundation for spinal cord and stem cell research (photo: Darryl Hannah and Christopher Reeve in 'Rear Window') (See previous post: "'Superman' Christopher Reeve and his Movies: Ten-Year Death Anniversary.") In his 1998 autobiography Still Me, Christopher Reeve recalled: "At an especially bleak moment [prior to an operation that might result in his death], the door [of his hospital room] flew open and in hurried a squat fellow with a blue scrub hat and a yellow surgical gown and glasses, speaking in a Russian accent. For the first time since the accident, I laughed. My old friend had helped me know that somehow I was going to be okay." The "old friend" was the recently deceased Robin Williams, whom Reeve had befriended while both were studying at Juillard. Eventually, Reeve became a staunch advocate for spinal cord and stem cell research, sponsoring with his wife the Christopher Reeve Foundation — later renamed the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation (and formerly known »

Anderson Cooper Talks About Mom Gloria Vanderbilt's Love Life (Video)

Ever get embarrassed when your mom talks about her old boyfriends? Well, what if one of those old boyfriends were Marlon Brando? That's what we're wondering after Anderson Cooper's appearance on The Late Show Wednesday, when he talked about his mother Gloria Vanderbilt's, ahem, frankness when discussing her love life with Cooper growing up. "My mom has no filter," he said. "I remember watching On the Waterfront with her, and I was like, 'Did you know Marlon Brando?' And she'd be like, 'Oh, yes.' " In her time, Vanderbilt, who turned 90 this year, was also linked to Clark Gable and Frank Sinatra, »

Satanic Sunday: Ranking Portrayals of the Devil

5 October 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It’s hard to nail down the personification of the ultimate evil. The Prince of Darkness deserves to be more than just a cackling, dark figure in the background or an over-the-top sleaze.  This is an angel who has been cast out of Heaven and carries a major grudge. Neglecting the depth of his pain or not seizing the opportunity to have a little fun in the exercise of his machinations is always a problem, with no discernible representation able to strike a perfect balance yet. The best contemporary performances on film leave something to the imagination and twist our perception of the iconic role just enough to make it seem fresh or threatening. What follows is a list of cinematic Satans that have made an indelible impression, ranked from worst to best.

Toronto Spotlight: ‘The Drop’ Scribe Dennis Lehane On Using Small Time Crime To Trigger Big Time Characters

6 September 2014 4:03 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Dennis Lehane has had a more charmed run that most authors, watching his superb novels Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island get turned into fine movies. Now he’s adapted one of his short stories into the Fox Searchlight drama The Drop, with Bullhead helmer Michael R. Roskam launching the film at Toronto last night and a cast led by Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace, Bullhead‘s Matthias Schoenarts and John Ortiz. Here, Lehane discusses what it’s like to have his dialogue made better by great actors, and what Hollywood owes authors in turning their books into films.

Deadline: You have this gift for creating memorably desperate tough guy characters on the fringes of the criminal world. Where did the inspiration for Animal Rescue come from?

Lehane: It started just with an image. A guy walking in the snow, down a street, and he hears a noise. »

See Reddit users’ favorite movie from each year

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Throughout the summer, an admin on the r/movies subreddit has been leading Reddit users in a poll of the best movies from every year for the last 100 years called 100 Years of Yearly Cinema. The poll concluded three days ago, and the list of every movie from 1914 to 2013 has been published today.

Users were asked to nominate films from a given year and up-vote their favorite nominees. The full list includes the outright winner along with the first two runners-up from each year. The list is mostly a predictable assortment of IMDb favorites and certified classics, but a few surprise gems have also risen to the top of the crust, including the early experimental documentary Man With a Movie Camera in 1929, Abel Gance’s J’Accuse! in 1919, the Fred Astaire film Top Hat over Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps in 1935, and Stanley Kubrick’s The Killing over John Ford’s »

Academy's Special 2014 Honorees: Veterans Belafonte, Carrière, Miyazaki and - Finally - O'Hara

29 August 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Honorary Oscars 2014: Hayao Miyazaki, Jean-Claude Carrière, and Maureen O’Hara; Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award goes to Harry Belafonte One good thing about the creation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards — an expedient way to remove the time-consuming presentation of the (nearly) annual Honorary Oscar from the TV ratings-obsessed, increasingly youth-oriented Oscar show — is that each year up to four individuals can be named Honorary Oscar recipients, thus giving a better chance for the Academy to honor film industry veterans while they’re still on Planet Earth. (See at the bottom of this post a partial list of those who have gone to the Great Beyond, without having ever received a single Oscar statuette.) In 2014, the Academy’s Board of Governors has selected a formidable trio of honorees: Japanese artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, 73; French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière, 82; and Irish-born Hollywood actress Maureen O’Hara, »

James Gandolfini, Tom Hardy tangle with real tough guys in 'The Drop'

27 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In The Drop, Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini play two Brooklyn cousins trying to make ends meet on the fringe of gangster life without sticking their necks out too far. Gandolfini, in what is his final onscreen performance, plays Cousin Marv, the manager of the seedy bar who once was respected and feared in the neighborhood but now settles for something less. Hardy plays Bob, the detached bartender who sees and hears nothing while he makes the nightly money drops that keep the business alive.

But when Bob finds an abandoned puppy and meets a pretty woman (Noomi Rapace), his »

Gorilla at Large

5 August 2014 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Talk about descriptive titles! This generic little indie, set in a Long Beach amusement park terrorized by an escaped gorilla, was one of only three 3-D productions released by 20th Century-Fox in the fifties. It benefits from an unusually good cast including Oscar nominee Lee J. Cobb (the same year he made On the Waterfront!) and contract player Anne Bancroft, who probably didn't include this one on her resume. George Barrows fills out the ape suit a year after playing the diving helmet-headed gorilla in Robot Monster.

The post Gorilla at Large appeared first on Trailers From Hell.

Robert De Niro's 10 best performances: Deer Hunter, Raging Bull

2 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In 1995 and 1997, Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. had Heat and Jackie Brown released into cinemas. Not his best films or his best performances, perhaps, but mesmerising work in excellent pictures directed by master filmmakers: the former saw him convince for Michael Mann as the cool, meticulous leader of a gang of career criminals; the latter had Quentin Tarantino give viewers a dim crim whose uncontrollable anger contributes to the unravelling of a heist.

For a whole generation of moviegoers who have grown up since, however, the adulation that's universally showered upon De Niro must be perplexing. Occasionally he summons up a portion of his old intensity – his turns in What Just Happened, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle are the (slim) picks of the last 15 years – but for anyone who got into movies from the late '90s on, he's the funny guy in Analyze This and Meet The Parents, »

Happy Birthday 'On The Waterfront'! Watch Visual Essay On Aspect Ratio Plus The Film's Most Famous Scene

28 July 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It had class, it was a contender, and sixty years ago today, it all started when Elia Kazan's "On The Waterfront" opened in theatres across the country. The film about squandered ambition, love, corruption and basic human decency has gone down as one of the finest American dramas ever produced, winning eight Oscars (including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress) and has, to this day, a single sequence that has some of the greatest screen acting you'll ever see. And so, with Comic-Con in the rearview, maybe it's a good time for a palette cleanser. Below you can check out The Criterion Collection's visual essay on the aspect ratio of the film (it was presented in a couple of formats upon release as they'll explain, and the boutique label offers a couple of options in their release of the movie). And after that, the scene »

Best Criterion Titles to Buy During Barnes & Noble's 50% Off Sale

30 June 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Barnes & Noble has just kicked off their 50% off Criterion sale and while it's impossible to suggest titles that will suit everyone looking to beef up their collection at this perfect time of year, I will do my best to offer some suggestions. Let's get to it... My Absolute First Pick I am almost done going through this collection and it was a collection I got for Christmas under these exact circumstances. Typically priced at $224.99, you can now get this amazing set of 25 Zatoichi films for only $112. Box sets, in my opinion, are what sales like this were made for. Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman Next Ten Recommendations It isn't easy so this is a collection of just some of my favorite films (of all-time and within the collection) and a little variety, though pretty much my standard, go to Criterion first picks, especially if you are just starting out.
