Indiewire Emmy Ballot 2015: Our Endorsements (And a Plea For Sanity After Last Year's Debacle)

28 August 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Heading into the 2014 Primetime Emmys, most prognosticators believed in a few predominant theories: "Modern Family's" four-year winning streak as Outstanding Comedy Series would be snapped, most likely by "Orange is the New Black," which would make it the first-ever winner in the category from a streaming network. Matthew McConaughey and Billy Bob Thornton would be rewarded for their work on "True Detective" and "Fargo," respectively, since one was nominated for Actor in a Drama Series and the other for Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. Louis C.K. or William H. Macy would take the stage as Outstanding Comedy Actor, and "The Normal Heart" would take home a bunch of trophies, including one for Matt Bomer.  But none of that happened. It's not that we here at Indiewire don't like upsets. Unpredictability is an exciting element of award shows (and one becoming more and more rare at the Oscars with all »

TV Is Not the New Film, But It’s Ok That Festivals Are Blurring the Lines

26 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Peter Debruge: Looks like Toronto is the latest film festival to add a television section to its lineup. These days, everywhere from Sundance to SXSW to the Canadian “festival of festivals,” smallscreen content is getting a big push, which is intriguing — and even ironic — for all sorts of reasons (ironic because the state of distribution being what it is, many of the films in Toronto will end up trickling down to VOD, rather than ever getting a commercial theatrical run). On one hand, the trend isn’t exactly new: Classy longform features like “Carlos” (which premiered at Cannes in 2010), “Top of the Lake” (Sundance 2013) and “Olive Kitteridge” (Venice 2014) made their bows at top-tier film fests before going on to air as miniseries on Canal Plus, BBC Two and HBO, respectively.

But Toronto’s Primetime program — like SXSW’s Episodics, which launched last year — represents something different: Rather than expanding the »

While the world awaits the release of Academy Award-winner Brian Helgeland’s gangster film (boasting not one, but Two Tom Hardys), now we can get a taste of what to expect in the background with the official soundtrack details. The album features a slew of essential ‘60s tracks from Booker T & The Mg’s, Herman’s Hermits, The Yardbirds, and Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, alongside some original compositions by the incomparable Carter Burwell ("Fargo," "Being John Malkovich," "Carol"). Read More: Tom Hardy Rules London Twice Over In New Trailer, Poster, & Images For Gangster Tale ‘Legend’ “Legend” opens in the UK on September 9th, then takes a turn at Tiff before it’s released by Universal in the U.S. on October 2nd. The soundtrack will be available sooner, starting on September 11th. Get your fix of these ‘60s tunes and imagine being immersed in the Kray brothers uprooted London while you’re at it. »

Until Dawn Review

24 August 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Are you one of those people who regularly yells at the TV while watching horror movies, because the characters’ dumb decisions annoy you to no end? If so, your chance to prove how much smarter you are than the average slasher movie victim has arrived, in the form of Supermassive Games’ Until Dawn. Combining horror movies with narrative-focused gaming to create a scary attempt at survival, it’s an instant classic that brings immersion to a whole new level.

Set in what seems to be the remote wilderness of Western Canada, Until Dawn is more of an experience than your average video game. It begins with a bang, then fast forwards a year ahead, to a time where eight friends have decided to culminate for a weekend of wintry remembrance in honour of friends who previously perished. They all ascend a gigantic mountain with the promise of friendship, memories and good times, »

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Limited Series

20 August 2015 8:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Without "Fargo" or "True Detective" in the running, "Olive Kitteridge" is finally ready to sweep up some trophies. After playing second (or third) fiddle at this year's Golden Globe Awards, Frances McDormand and Lisa Cholodenko's HBO miniseries is looking to take the frontrunner position at the Emmys and never let it go. A few familiar faces — and a few new ones — stand in their way. "The Honorable Woman" will try to take advantage of its Globes' win to springboard ahead of "Olive," while "American Horror Story" has long been a favorite of the TV Academy. Both squared off with "Olive" at the Globes, and Maggie Gyllenhaal even managed to upset McDormand for Best Actress.

The Coen Brothers Take On Black Money

6 August 2015 11:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In modern cinema, the Coen Brothers are giants. Having created classic after classic, these filmmakers are now the stuff of legend – writing, directing and producing films that are among the most original and fascinating ever made, while inspiring new creative projects from others, such as the Fargo TV series. It is understandable, then, that the world jumps to attention when their new projects are announced. Today is no exception, as it is apparently the case that Warner Bros. has optioned the best-selling 1966 novel Black Money for the intimidating duo to adapt, with Joel Silver co-producing.

Black Money is the perfect match for Joel and Ethan Coen, whose body of work includes movies such as Miller’s Crossing, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona and O Brother Where Art Thou? Written by Ross MacDonald, it is a detective story featuring the private eye character Lew Archer, in a complex, layered plot that is darkly funny, »

The Coen Brothers Adapting Ross MacDonald's Black Money

5 August 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While they often generate their own ideas, Joel and Ethan Coen have been known to base films on other peoples’ work. Warner Bros. has them doing just that, hiring the award-winning sibling duo to adapt Ross MacDonald’s 1966 crime novel Black Money with an eye to possibly directing it.While they haven’t decided whether they will actually make the film themselves, it sounds like something that could have them steering into Blood Simple/Fargo territory, albeit with more of a noir angle than the latter. MacDonald’s book focuses on private eye Lew Archer, who is hired by a jilted lover to investigate the Frenchman who ran off with his girlfriend. As so often happens with tales like this, it’s a case Lew probably wishes he hadn’t started digging into, as he’s soon deep into a conspiracy connecting the boyfriend to a suicide from years ago »

Joel and Ethan Coen to Write, May Direct Adaptation of Crime Novel ‘Black Money’

5 August 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joel and Ethan Coen will write and possibly direct an adaptation of Ross MacDonald’s bestselling novel “Black Money” for Warner Bros., sources have confirmed to Variety.

Joel Silver is on board to produce and co-finance the film with Warner Bros. via Silver Pictures Entertainment. Steve White will executive produce.

The story follows a private eye who’s hired by a betrayed lover to expose the man who ran off with his girlfriend, only to discover a major conspiracy at the root of the case. MacDonald wrote the novel in 1966 and died in 1983.

The film fits into the Coens’ noir wheelhouse, which includes “Barton Fink,” “Fargo” and “Blood Simple.

The Coen brothers most recently wrapped production on Universal’s “Hail Caesar!” with a cast that includes George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill.

They are repped by UTA. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.

New ‘Fargo’ Trailer Starts With Something Small

22 July 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s no waffling about the first trailer for FX’s sophomore season of “Fargo”: This is a deal of a crime scene.

The new season of the miniseries is set in 1979 and follows Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson’s cops Lou Solverson and Hank Larsson as they begin to investigate what appears to be a murder at a diner named for the patterned breakfast food. Along the way, they’ll have encounters with a mustache-free and conspiracy-minded character played by Nick Offerman and a formidable foe in the form of a matriarch played by Jean Smart.

The sequence of events will eventually lead to Wilson’s character becoming the diner-owning Lou Solverson whom Keith Carradine portrayed in the miniseries’ first season.

“If you were paying attention in season one, you know we made a lot of references to Sioux Falls, and that was deliberate; that wasn’t an accident, »

The Best Film Scores of 2015 (So Far)

21 July 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Either I’ve been staying on top of my homework or 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for film scores already. From blockbuster disappointments to indie oddities and mindless action sequels, film music has once again shown it can transcend its respective dreck just as much as it can enhance the cinematic experience. With film festival season on the horizon, let’s check in with the best movie music of the year:

8. ChappieHans Zimmer, Steve Mazzaro, Andrew Kawczynski

Neil Blomkamp’s movies seem to be getting worse, but Hans Zimmer’s sensibilities are getting more exotic and daring. Course-correcting from the massive publicity stunt that was The Amazing Spider-man 2, the master of bombast continues to experiment with digital textures, recruiting pupils Kawczyksnki and Mazzaro for a score that humanizes and contextualizes the childish perspective of its Robocop with a heart of gold.

Exclusive: 5-Minute Preview Of Carter Burwell's 'Mr. Holmes' Score

21 July 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's something of a crime that the great Carter Burwell has never won an Oscar, let alone been nominated, because it's hard to imagine some of the movies he's worked on without his musical touch. He's done memorable work for the Coen Brothers in films like "Fargo" and "Miller's Crossing," and his talents run wide, working on everything from Spike Jonze's singular "Where The Wild Things Are" to blockbuster "The Twilight Saga — Breaking Dawn." And his latest effort is another move in an interesting direction with Bill Condon's "Mr. Holmes." Led by Ian McKellen as the famed detective, the story follows the elderly crime solver who embarks on a mission to solve one last case. It's a journey that will see him confront issues of memory, aging, and legacy. And as you'll hear below in this exclusive preview, Burwell brings a sensitive touch with his compositions for the movie. »

Watch: ‘Fargo’ Season 2 Trailer Teases Broken Moral Compasses, Donut Love

14 July 2015 10:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first trailer for “Fargo” season two has hit the web, showing Patrick Wilson’s state police officer Lou Solverson (whose older self was played by Keith Carradine in season one) lamenting the moral breakdown of society amid a backdrop of shootings, beatings and donut eating.

The trailer also follows Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons as Peggy and Ed Blomquist, who look set to get themselves into just as much trouble as Martin Freeman’s Lester Nygaard did last season.

Rounding out the main cast are Ted Danson and Jean Smart, with stars including Jeffrey Donovan, Bruce Campbell, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett, Keir O’Donnell, Kieran Culkin, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Hogan, Cristin Milioti and Adam Arkin also set to recur.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to meet David Tennant, Batman

12 July 2015 9:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Across TV and comics, the Ninja Turtles are set to (sort of) meet Hellboy, a Klingon, a Doctor, and Batman...

David Tennant, the tenth Doctor himself, will be appearing in a guest role in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. Ninja Turtles and Doctor Who? That’s Den Of Geek excited.

Tennant will be voicing Fugitoid. Previously, the Fugitoid has been the robot version of scientist Professor Honeycutt, who is wanted by an army of Triceraton soldiers for refusing to allow them to use his inventions for warfare. Triceratons are dinosaur alien soldiers. Some of the original Ninja Turtles comics are a little strange. They’re pretty good though.

It seems likely that we’ll see something similar with the character here, as Aliens’ Lance Henrikson and Star Trek’s Michael Dorn were also revealed to have joined the show to voice Triceratons Zod and Captain Mozar respectively.
