Big Lebowski Jesus Spin-off Secretly Shooting in New York?

17 August 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Coen Brothers are not known for making sequels to their movies, and have made it quite clear that the prospect doesn't interest them very much. But that doesn't mean we won't ever see some of their beloved characters return. In fact, we may finally be seeing some characters from The Big Lebowski make their way back to the big screen in the near future. How, you may ask? Well, It looks like a new spinoff movie involving John Turturro's character Jesus Quintana is currently being filmed in New York.

A new report from Birth.Movies.Death claims that the movie Going Places, which he is currently filming and is said to be a remake of a 70s French movie, is actually a Big Lebowski spinoff. The script was reportedly written by Turturro himself, and he has assembled a cast that includes Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou and Susan Sarandon. »

Ava DuVernay Original Prison Documentary Set To Open The 54th New York Film Festival

19 July 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announces Ava DuVernay’s documentary The 13th as the Opening Night selection of the 54th New York Film Festival (September 30 – October 16), making its world premiere at Alice Tully Hall. The 13th is the first-ever nonfiction work to open the festival, and will debut on Netflix and open in a limited theatrical run on October 7.

Chronicling the history of racial inequality in the United States, The 13th examines how our country has produced the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with the majority of those imprisoned being African-American. The title of DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing film refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution—“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States . . . ” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass incarceration and »

Why FX's 'X-Men' spin-off 'Legion' won't be tied to the movies

1 June 2016 10:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday was a big day for Noah Hawley. Before the Fall, his fifth book — and his first since becoming the award-winning creator and showrunner of FX's Fargo — debuted to rave reviews(*) and a spot at the top of Amazon's bestseller list. And FX chose Hawley's publication date to officially order Legion — an X-Men spin-off of sorts (in the comics, the character is Professor X's son, but the show won't be connected to the films at all) starring Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, and Rachel Keller — to series.  (*) I raced through my copy of the book — which cuts back and forth between the story of a man who survived a plane crash and the backstories of the passengers who died — then went back and reread large chunks of it again and again. It's fantastic. Part of Hawley's day involved an appearance at Word Bookstore in Jersey City, where we talked »

'Fargo': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About the Coen Brothers' Classic

7 March 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Has it really been 20 years since the release of "Fargo?" Yah, you betcha.

The snowbound crime comedy-drama, released March 8, 1996, marked the first mainstream smash for Joel and Ethan Coen. It also gave Frances McDormand and William H. Macy their signature roles, spawned the acclaimed FX drama series, and sparked a brief fad that had everyone talking with exaggerated Minne-soh-ta accents.

Still, two decades after the film's debut, there's still a lot of confusion about what in "Fargo" was truth, what was fiction, and what was an elaborate in-joke. Here, then, are the far-fetched facts behind the film.1. The opening title card claims the movie is based on a true story, but in fact, it's almost completely fictional. There was, however, a real-life crime with some superficial similarities. The victim was Helle Crafts, a Connecticut woman who disappeared in 1986. Her husband was ultimately convicted of her murder; investigators determined that he'd »

Where You've Heard First-Time Oscar Nominee Carter Burwell's Scores Before

27 February 2016 6:10 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Carter Burwell is up for his first Academy Award this year, for Carol. Should the composer pick up an Oscar - and he's up against some stiff competition, from legends like Ennio Morricone and John Williams - it'll be his first in a 25-year-career. Here's a look back at some of the highlights: Burwell's longest collaboration has been with the Coen Brothers, for whom he's scored 15 films. After working on Blood Simple, Miller's Crossing and Barton Fink for the pair, Burwell did some more mainstream fare, including work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the 1995 historical epic Rob Roy, which »

One Thing I Love Today: Was the second season of 'Fargo' the best movie of 2015?

25 February 2016 11:25 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

One Thing I Love Today is a daily column dedicated to putting a spotlight on some pop culture item worth your attention. After all, there's enough snark out there. Why not start every day with one quick shotgun blast of positivity? Noah Hawley is a True Believer. There is no reason whatsoever that a television show based on Fargo should work, but after finishing season two of the FX series, I am blown away by what he's accomplished and by the sheer force of his love for Joel and Ethan Coen. Homage and inspiration are similar, but not the exact same things. Homage is fine, but I think you can only go so far with it. Inspiration, though, is something else. Real inspiration is a springboard to something new, something that is genuinely yours. One person looks at something and sees and processes it a certain way, and someone else »

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »
