William H. Macy on Shameless, Directing Sex Scenes, and Winning a SAG Award

27 February 2015 6:57 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

William H. Macy recently won a Screen Actors Guild award for his role in Showtime’s Shameless, but after making his big-screen directorial debut on last year’s indie Rudderless, what he really wants to do is direct. The 64-year-old directed Shameless’s March 1 episode and spoke with Vulture about doing nude scenes, Sports Night, and whether he’s watched FX’s Fargo.How did it feel to win a SAG award for Shameless?Of all the awards, that one means the most to me because those are my peeps. I feel like we crossed some kind of a threshold. Shameless is a rough show, and it’s not for everyone, but it’s also beautiful. I’m hoping winning this SAG means some of my co-stars will start to get recognition, like Emmy Rossum. She’s been spectacular for five seasons, and it’s about time somebody gives her something made of metal. »

Kumiko The Treasure Hunter Review

20 February 2015 12:17 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: David Zellner.

Cast: Rinko Kikuchi, Nobuyuki Katsube, Shirley Venard, David Zellner, Nathan Zellner.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 105 minutes

Synopsis: A lonely Japanese woman named Kumiko (Kikuchi), decides to venture to Fargo after having watched the popular Coen Brothers film and, believing the events to be true, she goes looking for the treasure buried by Steve Buscemi’s character.

The urban legend of a confused Japanese woman journeying to Fargo after watching the seminal Coen Brother’s classic has been doing the rounds for many years.  The actual truth is that the woman was very depressed and was searching for an ex-lover. Her death, rather than freezing in the snow looking for non-existent treasure, was actually a suicide. That’s not the point of David Zellner’s film though. Like Fargo itself, the film is blurring the lines between truth and storytelling, and rather than being a depressing tale of sadness and loneliness, »

The Losers: Why Roger Deakins is Overdue for an Oscar

16 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

All this week, we’re celebrating the losers — those talented filmmakers whom Oscar has foolishly overlooked. Kyle Turner, Chief Editor of Movie Mezzanine’s Balcony Blog gets us started with a look at the many looks of a great Dp. Roger Deakins has spent most of his illustrious career as the Leonardo DiCaprio of cinematographers; the guy whose work we all love, whose work is acknowledged by the big folks at the Academy Awards, and then promptly brushed off in favor of honoring someone else’s work instead. He’s been nominated for an Academy Award eleven times without a win, making this year’s nomination for Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken his twelfth. Regardless of his lack of Oscar hardware, we’re lucky to have such a master in our midst, a man who can craft some of the most gorgeous screen images of the modern era. Each frame speaks for itself, and »

'American Sniper,' 'Birdman,' 'Unbroken' win 2015 Mpse Golden Reel Awards

15 February 2015 10:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Motion Picture Sound Editors' (Mpse) 62nd annual Golden Reel Awards honored a full spread of films Sunday night. "American Sniper," "Birdman," "Unbroken," "Get On Up" and "Big Hero 6" all walked away with hardware. At the Oscars, "Sniper," "Birdman" and "Unbroken" are up against "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" and "Interstellar." "Birdman" won the Cinema Audio Society's mixing prize Saturday and could well win both sound fields. Or it could split with "Sniper," or Clint Eastwood's war film could take both, etc. Lots of options seem evident. (And the sound categories, by the way, are the only places for "Unbroken" fans to speak up.) Check out the full list of Mpse winners below, nominees here and the rest of the season's offerings at The Circuit.

Steve Buscemi becomes Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey spoof trailer

10 February 2015 9:51 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

First we had Charlie Hunnam, then we had Jamie Dornan... but what if Steve Buscemi played the role of Christian Grey?

A new parody trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey has emerged online with the actor as the film's male protagonist.

YouTuber Boo Ya Pictures has cleverly recut the trailer using clips of Buscemi in Reservoir Dogs, Fargo, The Wedding Singer, Boardwalk Empire and even Mr Deeds, in which he appeared as Crazy Eyes.

Scenes such as the one taken from Boardwalk Empire, where Buscemi is scratched by a woman in bed, give the trailer that slightly authentic feel.

How Has Fifty Shades of Buscemi Not Happened Sooner? Watch It Now

10 February 2015 8:55 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

With Fifty Shades of Grey coming out this week, now is the time to release any and all parodies. There's now a trailer featuring scenes from the movie spliced with Steve Buscemi films and shows, including Fargo, Boardwalk Empire, and Billy Madison. In this version of the movie, Ana is falling not for Christian but for a somewhat deranged Buscemi. It's simple but totally ridiculous. Take a look, and if you're still craving more Fifty Shades, check out Jamie Dornan playing Fifty Shades of Accents with Jimmy Fallon. »

'Fifty Shades of Buscemi' Is Irresistible

10 February 2015 4:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

He commands money and influence. He's got women falling at his feet. And he looks damn good in a suit. That describes Christian Grey in "Fifty Shades of Grey" as much as it does Nucky Thompson in "Boardwalk Empire."

That's what makes this recut "Fifty Shades" trailer featuring Steve Buscemi so great. Buscemi slides seamlessly into the role of the sexy, wealthy Bdsm master, thanks to takes of him from "Boardwalk," "Fargo," and "Billy Madison."

Now, why didn't anyone think of Buscemi for the part in the first place?

9 female movie characters who upstaged male heroes, from Speed to Skyfall

7 February 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The nominations of both Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) established a trend in this year's selection of Best Actress at the Oscars.

Both roles initially seem secondary to the male hero in their respective films (Ben Affleck's Nick in the former, Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking in the latter), but gradually come to take over the story in their own right. Here's our pick of nine further films where a heroine usurps her male counterpart.

M, Skyfall

Women usually get a raw deal in Bond films, so much so that the leads are dismissively referred to as 'Bond girls'. But the casting of Judi Dench as M from 1995's GoldenEye onwards went some way to redressing the gender balance - and by her final outing in Skyfall, she had almost become the protagonist in her own right.

Trailer: The Coen Brothers’ Treasure is Real and Kumiko Will Find It

6 February 2015 8:19 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

As we all know, Fargo is based on a true story, and the treasure that Steve Buscemi buried in the snow is real. All that cash, just waiting to be found. It’s a bittersweet premise for a movie, born from an urban legend about a young Japanese woman travelling to the tundra to find the money for herself, but Kumiko the Treasure Hunter pulls it off with odd joy. For one, Kumiko (Rinko Kikuchi) is an adorable, asocial young woman with a dry sensibility that comes from naivete and a terrible life filled with overbearing assholes. She finds joy in a VHS copy of the Coen Brothers’ hired-hit-gone-wrong story, and decides to find joy in searching for the briefcase she believes is truly buried somewhere in the snow. The Zellner Brothers‘ latest creation is a beautiful film, heartfelt at every turn, and it has the ability to make you laugh out loud while whispering. It »

The best award-winning films on Netflix

6 February 2015 2:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

We're knee-deep in awards season at the moment, with all the attendant speculation, drama and controversy you would expect. Who should win? Who was snubbed? Who will fall over before they reach the podium? We're looking at you, Jennifer Lawrence.

Around this time, we tend to realise the shocking number of lauded films from previous years which we still haven't seen. So here's a selection of the best award-winning films you can catch up with on Netflix:

The Godfather

Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 classic hardly needs an introduction from us. The film took three Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor for Marlon Brando, as well as a record five Golden Globes and further nods from the Grammys, and Writers and Directors Guilds of America.

Brando's performance as mafia boss Vito Corleone is, of course, legendary, with other fantastic turns from Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, James Caan and Robert Duvall. »

Full-Length Trailer Unearthed For Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter

5 February 2015 1:47 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The gullible nature and boundless optimism of one Japanese woman is explored in the upcoming Zellner Brothers release, Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter. The flick drew positive reviews after its debut at last year’s Sundance Film Festival yet still took a while to land a U.S. distributor. Thankfully, the wildly imaginative caper – a result of its leading lady – is on its way to theaters shortly, and ahead of its release, the first full-length trailer has arrived. And it’s simply wonderful.

Based on the true story of a Tokyo office worker, Kumiko, the movie chronicles her journey to the snowy climes of North Dakota, USA. After discovering a mysterious VHS tape of the Coen Brothers’ movie Fargo, she believes it to be a documentary and vows to retrieve the massive suitcase of cash that Steve Buscemi buries in the snow. He did tag it with a tiny snow scraper to mark its place, »

Oscar Nominees Blur Lines Between Big and Small Screens

5 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the divide between film and TV becomes increasingly difficult to discern, it’s far less uncommon to see well-known TV actors playing juicy roles on the big screen. And now that TV is no longer the death knell it once was for performers hoping for a film career, some of the industry’s best talent is emanating from TV. It’s also the medium actors are most frequently recognized for. As frontrunner supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons told Variety last year before “Whiplash,” with his breakthrough role, opened, “It’s rather sobering to realize more people have seen my Farmers Insurance commercials than everything put together.”

Among the year’s acting Oscar nominees, several are known for their series work, including Steve Carell (NBC’s “The Office”), Benedict Cumberbatch (PBS’ “Sherlock”), J.K. Simmons (TNT’s “The Closer,” NBC’s “Growing Up Fisher”), and Laura Dern (HBO’s “Enlightened”). Patricia Arquette »
