‘Marjorie Prime’ Exclusive Teaser: Lois Smith And Jon Hamm Star In New Sci-Fi Drama About Artificial Intelligence

13 September 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jordan Harrison’s 2014 Pulitzer Prize-nominated play “Marjorie Prime” explores what happens when artificial intelligence enters the home and tries to aid us. It follows the 86-year-old Marjorie (played by Lois Smith in the first production), whose mind routinely falls into confusion and fading memories. But then she acquires a handsome new companion who resembles her late husband and is programmed to tell her the story of her life. The question is, “What would you remember, if given the chance?” Now director Michael Almereyda (“Experimenter”) will adapt Harrison’s play to the screen with Smith reprising the title role and Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”) as Marjorie’s new companion. The film also stars Geena Davis (“The Accidental Tourist”) and Tim Robbins (“Mystic River”). Watch an exclusive teaser for the film below.

Peter Sarsgaard Q&A: Why ‘The Magnificent Seven’ Villain Isn’t Interested In Leaving Indies Behind – Tiff 2016

8 September 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every great Western needs a great villain, and Peter Sarsgaard delivers an outsized one in Antoine Fuqua’s “The Magnificent Seven.” In the remake of the classic 1960 feature of the same name (itself an Americanized remake of the 1954 Akira Kurosawa feature “Seven Samurai”), Sarsgaard plays the power-hungry (and just plain mean) Bartholomew Bogue, who has taken over the tiny town of Rose Creek, all the better to capitalize on its rich local mines.

Bogue’s methods for keeping Rose Creek’s citizens in line are vicious and brutal, and he’s clearly not used to being opposed by anyone, especially small-town folk who are just trying to carve out a living for themselves during the heyday of the American West. In an attempt to stifle an uprising, Bogue sets into motion a much bigger problem, led by Haley Bennett’s Emma Cullen, who takes matters into her own hands and »

Cinema Gadfly – Episode 22 – Bob Roberts

30 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

My guest for this month is Herb van der Poll, and he’s joined me to discuss the film he chose for me, the 1992 American-British satirical mockumentary film Bob Roberts. You can follow the show on Twitter @cinemagadfly.

Show notes:

The cast is seriously insane, with Tim Robbins, Giancarlo Esposito, Ray Wise, Gore Vidal, John Cusack, Peter Gallagher, Alan Rickman, and Susan Sarandon Oh and also James Spader, Helen Hunt, Jack Black, Jeremy Piven and his sister Shira, and Bob Balaban Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know we have an election happening The film shows some strong parallels to the presidency of George W. Bush Ray Wise, of course, was famously Laura Palmer’s dad on one of my all time favorite shows, Twin Peaks In this film, he and Alan Rickman play Dick Cheney and Karl Rove type figures Folk music is often in the service of liberal causes, »

Susan Sarandon: Oscar Campaigns Are Out of Control

15 May 2016 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Susan Sarandon thinks that the Oscar race has gone off the rails.

“We need campaign finance reform,” said Sarandon. “The campaigns are so enormous…it’s as long as a presidential campaign.”

Sarandon said that the money required to orchestrate this kind of grueling, months-long trek to awards glory, is turning the Academy Awards into a case of haves and have nots. There are festivals to fly to, dinners to host, and hands to press all over the country if an actor wants to have a chance of mounting the stage at the Dolby.

“People have to be available for months and someone has to pay for that,” she noted.

Sarandon’s comments came at a Variety panel during the Cannes Film Festival. The actress, an Oscar-winner for 1995’s “Dead Man Walking,” was joined by Geena Davis, who picked up a best supporting actress statue in 1988 for “The Accidental Tourist. »

Sean Penn Tells ‘60 Minutes’ He Was ‘Stunned’ By El Chapo Meeting

17 January 2016 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Millions of people were surprised that actor Sean Penn was able to meet with escaped Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman for an article that would make its way into the pages of Rolling Stone. Sean Penn was one of them.

In an interview with CBS News anchor Charlie Rose on “60 Minutes” Sunday evening, the actor told Rose that he assumed Mexican officials were aware of what he was doing, and that the meeting was indeed a risk for Guzman as well as himself. “I was– I was stunned– that– that– that he w– would risk– our trip. I was stunned,” Penn said in the interview, according to a transcript provided by CBS News. “I was baffled by his will to see us,” Penn added later on in the talk.

Guzman was free after escaping one of Mexico’s most secure prisons last July, making Penn’s visit to see him exceedingly dangerous, »

For Sean Penn, Acting Goes Hand-in-Hand With Activism

13 January 2016 3:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In the early 1990s, after his brief marriage to Madonna made him tabloid fodder, Sean Penn turned his back on acting to concentrate on directing and writing.

His retirement was short-lived.

The subsequent decades brought Oscar-winning turns in “Mystic River” and “Milk,” along with memorable performances in the likes of “Dead Man Walking” that cemented his reputation as an acting great.

But those early threats of retirement reveal Penn’s long-felt discomfort with being a creature of Hollywood, and point to a contradiction in his public persona. While the entertainment business is part of his DNA, he seems to find his greatest fulfillment far from the klieg lights.

Both sides of Penn were on display last week, when the actor whipped up a media firestorm after his blockbuster interview with Mexican druglord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman appeared in Rolling Stone. The piece, a rambling first-person account of his efforts to secure the interview, »

Sean Penn Unmasks ‘The End’ of the Acting Blues (Guest Column)

6 January 2016 3:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From 500 B.C. to 300 B.C., actors of the Greek theatre wore the masks of comedy and tragedy–those that had come to be the representative symbols of the craft of acting, and the expression of the actor. Somewhere along the line, acting found its way more into a profession than expression. Today, those masks represent a union, or more accurately, a guild of actors that work to protect business with little or no focus on the protection of creative expression.

Throughout my own career as an actor, I’ve worked hard to avoid that label; to find projects that I felt I could serve well in their expression. I tried to avoid careerism.  I have had my share of transgressions. Yet overall, my care for the work was such that I sought a body of work that would, within my own limitations, express my generation’s experience.

Now, in my mid-fifties, »
