'Equalizer's' Denzel Washington won't wait another 12 years to work with Antoine Fuqua again

16 September 2014 11:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto - When an actor wins an Academy Award he or she usually tries to work with the director who helped guide them to the top of the mountain again.  Often, it has great results.  After winning a best supporting Oscar for "Terms of Endearment" Jack Nicholson reunited with James L. Brooks on "As Good As It Gets" and won best actor.  Jennifer Lawrence immediately worked with her "Silver Linings Playbook" maestro, David O. Russell, on "American Hustle" which resulted in back to back nominations.  Diane Weist won her first Oscar for Woody Allen's "Hannah and Her Sisters" and her second for his comedy "Bullets Over Broadway."  That's just one reason it's somewhat surprising the prolific Denzel Washington took 12 years to reunite with his "Training Day" director, Antoine Fuqua for "The Equalizer." Barely based on the late 1980's TV series of the same name, the new movie finds the »

Off the Carpet: Best Actor and Best Actress make for a tale of two industries

8 September 2014 9:52 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Look across the landscape of Best Actor Oscar contenders this year. Michael Keaton, Steve Carell, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Bill Murray, Timothy Spall, Chadwick Boseman, Kevin Costner, Ralph Fiennes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Hardy, James McAvoy, Channing Tatum all seen and stumped for. Joaquin Phoenix, David Oyelowo, Brad Pitt, Jack O'Connell, Bradley Cooper, Oscar Isaac, Matthew McConaughey and Mark Wahlberg all looking for room on the other side. Gael García Bernal, Ellar Coltrane, Brendon Gleeson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tommy Lee Jones, John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Miles Teller all likely to find supporters besides. Now look at the Best Actress contenders… It seems an oft-repeated lament. The leading lady category always feels just wide enough to manage a healthy slate of nominees, while the fellas deal with shocked asides on Oscar nomination morning about Tom Hanks or some such somehow missing the cut. "It was just too competitive." But it never seems »

Toronto Film Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

7 September 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sitting shiva makes the heart grow fonder (and the libido rage and the repressed grievances runneth over) in “This Is Where I Leave You,”. Repping a concerted effort by “Night at the Museum” and “Cheaper By the Dozen” helmer Shawn Levy to spread his wings beyond the gilded cage of family-friendly tentpoles, this alternately manic and mawkish adaptation of Jonathan Tropper’s 2009 novel aims for “Kramer Vs. Kramer” and “Terms of Endearment” territory and ends up somewhere closer to a Semitic “Home For the Holidays” or “August: Osage County.” But a tremendous ensemble cast gives the pic a significant boost, especially when they’re allowed to act rather than merely act out. Opening wide Sept. 19 following its Toronto Film Festival bow, “This” occupies an increasingly rare space on a major studio’s release slate: a literary adaptation that’s neither tween-centric nor awards bait, but which could generate some modest »

Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Miss Piggy, Armando Iannucci and Bryan Cranston highlight the TCA Awards

20 July 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Saturday was an excellent night and a strange night to be a member of the Television Critics Association. On the one hand, we held our annual TCA Awards ceremony, filled with terrific winners giving terrific speeches. On the other, the power in the hotel (and the surrounding neighborhood) randomly went out late in the post-show reception, and then news broke that the great James Garner — who had won our Career Achievement award four years earlier — had died. Before the blackout and the sad news, though, the night featured many highlights, including: * "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" co-star Terry Crews was our host, and after first doing the expected — juggling his pecs, he said, "I'm contractually obligated to do that" — he did the wildly unexpected by introducing Miss Piggy from the Muppets to duet on a song about the challenges of being a TV critic.

10 Minutes With 80s Icon Debra Winger at the Provincetown Film Festival

26 June 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you were watching films in the 80s, chances are, you're a fan of Debra Winger. A relative unknown (save for her appearance as Wonder Girl in the "Wonder Woman" TV series), Winger kicked off the decade with a trifecta of hits -- "Urban Cowboy" (1980), "An Officer and a Gentleman" (1982) and "Terms of Endearment" (1983) -- that made her a major Hollywood force in the short span of three years. Unfortunately for cinemagoers, that is no longer the case. Fortunately for Winger, that's of her own doing and not because Hollywood stopped fielding her offers. At 40, after a slew of commercial and art house successes, Winger stopped considering parts altogether, favoring a quieter life with her husband (Arliss Howard, who directed her in "Big Bad Love") and three children. She still acts from time to time on projects she's especially passionate about, such as Jonathan Demme's "Rachel Getting Married" and HBO's show "In. »

Debra Winger talks about the Us 'facelift epidemic'

Accepting a lifetime achievement award in Transilvania, Winger talks about her career, fracking and film vs digital.

The Academy Award nominated American actress and producer Debra Winger recieved the Career Achievement Award at the 13th Transilvania International Film Festival in Cluj-Napoca this weekend. But she’s got mixed feelings about such honours.

“First of all it’s sort of been a superstition not to ever accept any award so I believe this one’s the first I’ve accepted. And I’ll probably pretend that I didn’t,” she said, adding that she wanted to come to Romania, to Cluj and to this festival and couldn’t avoid to accept how they wanted to invite her. “It’s just a heavy object, it will hold my door open,” she joked. In recognition of the award, the festival has screened two of her most famous films: An Officer and a Gentleman (for which she was Oscar nominated) and The Sheltering Sky »

Can Sony Classics land two Best Actor nominations for 'Foxcatcher?'

20 May 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I was glued to the Twitter application of my iPhone Sunday night waiting for the reactions to Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" to roll in as the film bowed in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival. It was interesting to watch the first wave of knee-jerks, all of them just a touch muted, I assume because Miller is not a filmmaker whose movies hit you right away. They kind of seep into you the more you spin away from them, and I got the feeling "Foxcatcher" is absolutely one such example. We were all more or less expecting something special out of Steve Carell here. From photos and that early trailer that slipped out last fall, it was clear he had undergone a transformation for the role of multimillionaire murderer John du Pont, both physically and professionally. And indeed, all indications are that it is a career-altering portrayal. Here's one juicy »

New Interstellar Trailer Is Amazing

16 May 2014 3:44 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In one of the most anticipated movies of the year, watch the stunning new trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. The movie chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Opening in cinemas in November, (in the UK on November 7), Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway and Michael Caine.

The trailer is genius – kudos to whoever cut it together. The launch scene will assuredly be exhilarating. I can’t wait for November!

Directed and co-written by Christopher Nolan (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy), the production will travel the globe and utilize a mixture of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography to bring to the screen a script based on the combination of an original idea by Nolan and an existing script by Jonathan Nolan, »
