‘Mudbound’: Netflix Oscar Hopeful Is AFI Fest Opening Night Entry

‘Mudbound’: Netflix Oscar Hopeful Is AFI Fest Opening Night Entry
November’s annual eight-day AFI Fest can be an effective launch-pad for Oscar-bound late-year movies such as “American Sniper” and “Selma,” and this year is no exception. Festival director Jacqueline Lyanga has chosen Netflix Sundance debut “Mudbound” to open the festival on November 9, following another showing at the New York Film Festival and just before its day-and-date debut November 17 in theaters and on Netflix.

The streaming service carries high awards hopes for the acclaimed Dee Rees post-World War II drama co-written by Virgil Williams and Rees about two farming families in the rural South, starring Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, Jason Mitchell, Garrett Hedlund, and an unrecognizable Mary J. Blige. Set in the Mississippi Delta, the period drama features stunning epic cinematography by AFI Conservatory alumna Rachel Morrison. As usual, the Opening Night Gala will be held at the Tcl Chinese Theatre.

Low-Key ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Premiere Opens With Poignant Las Vegas Shooting Recognition
“Blade Runner 2049” premiered Tuesday night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood in a low-key event without a red carpet celebration — but with a poignant acknowledgement of the recent tragedy in Las Vegas.

“So this week once again we’ve been reminded how precious and fragile life is,” said producer Andrew Kosove in introducing the science-fiction sequel.

The audience included stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Jared Leto and Robin Wright, director Denis Villeneuve and Ridley Scott, who directed the original “Blade Runner.” Producers Broderick Johnson and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin took the stage with Kosove.

“We are also reminded how much we still have to come together as a country,” said Kosove. “But tonight we’re here to celebrate the arts. And in times such as these, the arts are even more crucial to our society than ever. The arts makes us think, they make us laugh, they take us places. Most

Wag the Dog Getting a TV Reboot at HBO, With Barry Levinson Directing
Two decades after it hit theaters, Wag the Dog feels more relevant than ever — which might explain why HBO is rebooting it.

And it has the blessing of the original team: The film’s director, Oscar winner Barry Levinson, is on board to executive produce the series and direct the pilot, and De Niro will serve as an Ep as well.

‘Awake, A Dream From Standing Rock’ Is A Lesson in Resistance For the Rest of Us — Tribeca Review
The sweeping plains of North Dakota are naturally cinematic, its tall windswept grasses and blue river bends forming an image as American as apple pie. During the months-long protests at the Standing Rock reservation over the Dakota Access Pipeline’s demolishing of sacred Native burial grounds, this grand landscape became a bittersweet backdrop for images of peaceful protesters barraged by water cannons and choked by tear gas. Until now, these images reached the outside world only as shaky iPhone video, a drone shot, or a colorful still overlaid with inspirational text.

Alec Baldwin is hosting Saturday Night Live for the 17th time this weekend, after guest starring all season playing President Donald Trump.

While fans are no doubt excited to see how Baldwin lampoons the president when he gets a chance to host, the momentous occasion has us feeling nostalgic for all the great comedy the Golden Globe winner has brought to the show since his first time hosting back in October 1990.

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in December 2016, and The Best Episodes of Each

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in December 2016, and The Best Episodes of Each
1. “Trollhunters” Season 1 (available December 23)

Why Should I Watch It? Two big reasons: First, the director of “Pan’s Labyrinth,” Guillermo del Toro, created “Trollhunters,” an animated event series about a teenager who discovers a mystical amulet that unveils a secret civilization of trolls beneath his hometown. If the Oscar nominee himself isn’t enough, there’s another creative force — in addition to the impressive voice cast of Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman and Charlie Saxton — to pay attention to: Said teenager is voiced by Anton Yelchin, in what’s being billed his final role. After debuting two episodes at New York Comic-Con in October, del Toro said he never even discussed replacing Yelchin. “We didn’t go into a meeting,” del Toro said. “We didn’t have a conference. […] He was a great guy to work with, he was proud of what he did, we were proud of what he did.

Tom Cruise: A 30-Year Appreciation of the Hollywood Top Gun

Tom Cruise: A 30-Year Appreciation of the Hollywood Top Gun
More so than ever it seems, we've become increasingly obsessed with acknowledging the anniversaries of beloved movies, TV shows and music. Not that there's anything wrong with celebrating our pop culture past, mind you. In fact, for someone as nostalgic as myself, I completely embrace it. Which brings me to a little milestone of my own. This one, though, doesn't simply focus on a particular piece of celluloid, but instead, revolves around a certain actor whose work has been an enduring presence throughout my movie-going life.

For the last 30 years, not only have I sat and watched every single Tom Cruise film that has come out since 1986, I have done so in an actual, honest-to-goodness movie theater. That's a total of 33 silver screen experiences (34 if you count his Austin Powers in Goldmember cameo), including the latest, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Yeah, you might say I'm a fan.

However, prior to the start of this streak -- and

HBO’s well-received limited series “The Night Of” will wrap up its eight-part whodunnit in late August. Steve Zaillian’s gritty drama, which examines a man’s fate after he wakes up charged with the murder of a relative stranger, debuted to rave reviews from critics and audiences. IndieWire’s Ben Travers writes, “By actively engaging on personal and political levels, Zaillian sucks the viewer into a nightmare scenario wholly dependent on two verdicts: first, whether or not Naz is found guilty, but also if he really did it.” Here’s hoping the series can maintain its slow burn thrills all the way to the end.
