Kevin Spacey Will Be Trapped In the Body of a Cat in Nine Lives

28 January 2015 12:06 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s such a good time to celebrate the talents of Kevin Spacey. This month marks the 20th anniversary of the festival premiere of The Usual Suspects, which earned the actor his first Oscar. We recently furthered its accolades by naming it the best movie ever to screen at Sundance. Spacey also just won his first Golden Globe on his eighth try, for his leading role on the series House of Cards. The third season of that show is about to drop on Netflix in a month, too, so that’s exciting. The guy should be on top of the world, getting more prestige gigs like his role as Richard Nixon in the much-anticipated Elvis & Nixon. But instead, today, we’ve received the news, via The Wrap, that he’s going to play a guy who becomes trapped in the body of a cat. Of course this movie will be huge, especially »

5 New Netflix Shows to Binge Watch in February 2015 (And the Best Episodes of Each)

27 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1) "House of Cards" Season 3 (available February 27)Why Should I Watch It? Um, because you're a living, breathing human being? Because Kevin Spacey won a Golden Globe for his riveting, seductive performance as Frank Underwood, when he couldn't for his roles in "The Usual Suspects," "Beyond the City" or "American Beauty"? Because the series' real star is Robin Wright and her ruthless yet humane portrayal of Claire Underwood? Because last season we saw murder, at least one threesome and a rapid rise to power? Maybe you should watch because if you're reading this, you already want to — succumb. Enjoy. Watch. Best Episode: Maybe it's because Netflix releases episodes all at once, but so far "House of Cards" has treated its season premieres with equal importance as its finales — in terms of twists, at least. [Spoilers ahead] Season 1 established the Underwood's mission to destroy President Walker, introduced us to the »

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »

7 Beloved Movies You Didn't Know Debuted At Sundance

23 January 2015 12:49 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah has always been a place for independent spirit, unique storytelling and movies that challenge the so-called "rules" of film making.

Often, this translates to weird, unmarketable character studies that either never see the light of day or are shoved off onto VOD platforms without so much as a single advertisement. But this isn't always the case. In fact, some of the most beloved, iconic films of the last 20 years got their start in the many hallowed screens scattered across the small snow-covered city.

News: 9 Sundance 2015 Films We Are Dying to See

Here are seven hugely popular films that you'd never guess came out of the Sundance Film Festival.

‘Transparent’, ‘House Of Cards’ Scoop Up Big Wins At Golden Globes

12 January 2015 8:24 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

On the day after the Golden Globe Awards, much discussion has concerned the rise of online video distributors. While the four major networks were completely shut out of major awards, Netflix and Amazon each scored big wins. Most significantly, Amazon's breakout hit Transparent won Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical and Best Actor - Comedy or Musical for its star Jeffrey Tambor. On Netflix's side, Kevin Spacey won Best Actor - Drama for his role in House of Cards.

The win is particularly significant for Amazon. Transparent's Golden Globe nominations were the platform's first ever award nods, and by picking up two wins, the online retailer-turned-video on demand platform took a big step forward as it looks to challenge both Netflix and traditional TV networks.

Here's Transparent creator Jill Soloway accepting the award for Best Comedy Series:
