4 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Sony Pictures has acquired Before The Fall, a novel written by Noah Hawley, who shared the Emmy Award for Outstanding Miniseries for hatching the FX television transfer of Fargo.

'Unbroken' is early frontrunner for Adapted Screenplay Oscar

17 September 2014 9:16 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

We recently opened our predictions for the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar, and the early favorite is "Unbroken," Angelina Jolie's upcoming drama about Olympian-turned-World War II-hero Louis Zamperini. Our experts, editors, and users all favor it to win, giving it 9/4 odds overall. -Break- Oscars Best Picture race led by 'Boyhood,' 'Unbroken,' 'Birdman,' 'Foxcatcher' (Photo Gallery) It's no wonder "Unbroken" is out front for the screenplay award; it has one of the strongest writing pedigrees of any film this season. Adapted from the nonfiction book by Laura Hillenbrand, who also wrote the source material for Oscar-nominated "Seabiscuit," it's credited to four writers, all of whom are familiar to academy voters. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are already four-time Oscar champs, including a pair of writing wins for "Fargo" (1996) and "No Country for Old Men" ...' »

Trailer for Bang Bang Baby starring Jane Levy and Justin Chatwin

31 August 2014 11:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

 

In this current culture of major big budget cinematic events, I find myself searching for more subversive experiences. Smaller films that take bigger risks and often payoff with bigger rewards. Movies like Snowpiercer and Life After Beth come to mind. As geek culture becomes the center of the entertainment universe, independent filmmakers can make more genre-friendly small budget films capable of playing with our favorite conventions. Bang Bang Baby seems to fit that bill. A sci-fi musical rooted in the classic drive-in scary movies of the 1960′s.

From IMDb:

A small town teenager in the 1960s believes her dreams of becoming a famous singer will come true when her rock star idol gets stranded in town. But a leak in a nearby chemical plant that is believed to be causing mass mutations threatens to turn her dream into a nightmare.

The film screens this month at the Toronto Film Festival »

Review: 'The Boxtrolls' delights with a witty script and superb stop motion animation

30 August 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - If you liked "The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists!," the "Wallace & Gromit" films, anything by Monty Python or just funny, witty movies in general, make sure you catch Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi's "The Boxtrolls." Based on the book "Here Be Monsters" by Alan Snow, I can't remember the last time I saw a family animation so visually rich, tightly scripted and charmingly performed which was also built on a sound and progressive message. It's unlikely to become a cultural juggernaut on the level of something like "Frozen," but I think it is as enjoyable. The set up has the magical feel of a traditional fairytale blended with the weirder sensibility of a revisionist fable along the lines of "Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes." In a city where fancy cheeses are prized by the upper classes as the epitome of fine living, the middle classes live in fear of The Boxtrolls, »

Bang Bang Baby, developed by Jeffrey St. Jules in the Cannes Film Festival’s Cinéfondation, is an otherworldly musical about Stepphy (Jane Levy), who is trapped in the sleepy 1960′s town of Lonely Arms taking care of her alcoholic father (Peter Stormare).  Stepphy dreams of escaping to a better life on the stage and screen, and when rock star Bobby Shore’s (Justin Chatwin) car breaks down in Lonely Arms, it seems her impossible dream might actually be coming true. But when Fabian (David Reale), the town creep, tells Stepphy that the local chemical factory is leaking dangerous purple fumes that can cause human mutations, Stepphy becomes obsessed with hiding these dark secrets from Bobby until they can escape together and make all of her fantasies a reality.

This unique and stylized film stars Jane Levy (Evil Dead, Suburgatory) in a defining turn as Stepphy, a small town girl who »
