Alex Garland of 'Ex Machina' follows others who took a writing-to-directing leap

11 April 2015 | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Alex Garland, screenwriter of “28 Days Later,” “Sunshine” and “Never Let Me Go,” makes an impressive directorial debut with cerebral sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina” (in theaters today), but Garland waves off the achievement of leaping to directing as “just next in a continuum.” “The truth was that there was no epiphany moment about directing, because I just don’t dignify the directing role the way we’re supposed to,” the British filmmaker told The Dissolve. “There are a few people — like Woody Allen, he’s an auteur, and I’m cool with that. But for me, directing is about collaboration.” Whether directing is a logical next step or a hard-sought achievement for screenwriters, it’s often done by telling studios, “Hey, here’s my next screenplay. You can have it as long as I get to direct.” Preston Sturges — at the time the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood — is noted for »

Kevin Spacey’s Greatest Performances

8 April 2015 11:14 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey is an eminent actor and a well-respected performer of his generation. He constantly puts in solid performances in any movie, television or theatrical projects he involves himself in and is a consummate professional. He recently picked up the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series Drama award at this years Golden Globe ceremony in Los Angeles for his much praised role as the conniving Francis Underwood in Netflix Original series ‘House of Cards’. And with the third season of the award-winning series heading our way later this month we thought we’d take a look back at some of the best and most iconic movie roles the 55-year old actor has managed to accumulate over the years.

Kevin Spacey currently plays "House of Cards" protagonist Frank Underwood, who is arguably one of the greatest villains ever to grace TV. Season 3 of the Netflix hit returns tonight at midnight, so we thought we would throw it back to some great photos from earlier in his accomplished career for this week's edition of #Tbt. Before he became scheming politico, the Academy Award winner played iconic characters in beloved films like "The Usual Suspects," "American Beauty," and "Glengarry Glen Ross." Here are some snapshots from his Hollywood history.

Every Day I'm Hustling: Film’s 10 most memorable con artists

25 February 2015 2:17 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Big Willy’s latest big screen outing makes its way to the multiplex this month. In Focus, Smith plays the consummate con man, a smooth operator who liberates people of their wealth with the help of a Margot Robbie-shaped femme fatale.

The duo of tricksters aren’t the first con artists to grace the silver screen however. So from pool sharks and grifters to tricksters, card cheats and American hustlers; here’s our rundown of the most memorable con artists in movie history.

 

Fast Eddie Felson – The Hustler (1961)

One of the finest fraudster films to ever grace the multiplex; The Hustler stars Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson, a pool shark intent on toppling legendary cue-man Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). With its smoky sets, stunning black and white cinematography and superb performances from Newman and Gleason; the film is just as good today as it was on its release more than 50 years ago. »

Shelf Life: The Way Of The Gun

4 February 2015 2:05 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Every week, Shelf Life sees Tom White select and talk about a movie that lives on his DVD shelf, one he thinks we should all see. After receiving critical acclaim and numerous awards for co-writing The Usual Suspects, Christopher McQuarrie was noticeably absent from the cinematic landscape. You may know him now for Jack reacher and Edge of Tomorrow, but back in the late nineties, he was unsuccessfully trying to get a biopic of Alexander the Great off the ground, not wanting his success with Bryan Singer's classic thriller to typecast him as 'a crime guy'. But, as the story goes, it took a cup of coffee with Benico Del Toro to change his mind, which sent him to work on his directorial debut, an action/crime thriller which turned everything we know about the usual hero dynamic on it's head. This was movie was 2000's The Way of the Gun. »

The Writer And Director Of The Usual Suspects Still Don't Agree On What Happened

2 February 2015 2:24 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Every generation has been lucky enough to have a gut-punch movie ending, from the twists at the ends of Psycho or The Crying Game (for examples) to the rug pulls that concluded The Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects. But for the finale of Bryan Singer.s criminal masterpiece, it turns out that the director and the screenwriter haven different ideas about what really happened. In a conversation with Creative Screenwriting, Christopher McQuarrie . who took home the Screenplay Oscar for his work on Suspects in 1996 . revealed that he and the director could not come to terms with what actually happened. and added that fan theories submitted to the duo over the years also did a lot to change how he views the action presented on screen. McQuarrie elaborates: [Singer] has one scenario, I have another. The film would not work if it answered all of your questions. I have heard »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

10. Waterworld

Directed by: Kevin Reynolds

It could be the flop of all flops. At the time, “Waterworld” was the most expensive film ever made. Starring Kevin Costner, “Waterworld” is a science-fiction/fantasy film taking place roughly 500 years after the polar ice caps melted in the beginning of the 21st century, effectively covering the entire world with water. Dirt has become a commodity and an unknown traveler named “the Mariner” (Costner) is trying to find anywhere to trade his stash. The catch: he’s a mutant, with gills, allowing him to breathe underwater. He is joined by a woman named Helen (Jeannie Tripplehorn) and child named Enola (Tina Majorino) with an elaborate map tattooed on her back. They sail the world and encounter various groups of survivors. They are pursued by a group of evil forces, led by an eye-patched man called “the Deacon” (Dennis Hopper). The special effects are actually pretty impressive, »

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 »
