Oscar Buzz: Can Roger Deakins Finally Win A Best Cinematography Oscar With 'Unbroken'?

12 November 2014 9:03 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Roger Deakins is about as close to being a household name as you can get for a cinematographer. That's a relative term, obviously: the man or woman on the street probably can't pick him from a line-up. But anyone with even a little bit of cinephile DNA will know that Deakins is one of the top Directors of Photography in the world, a man who's collaborated with the Coens (most regularly), Martin Scorsese and Andrew Dominik, who's lensed Bond movies and Oscar winners, and who's seemingly incapable of making  an unattractive movie. He's also an eleven-time Oscar nominee, and a zero-time Oscar winner, marking him among the most prominent permanent awards bridesmaids around. Deakins was nominated for "The Shawshank Redemption," "Fargo," "Kundun," "O Brother Where Art Thou," "The Man Who Wasn't There," "No Country For Old Men," "The Assassination Of Jesse James," "The Reader," "True Grit," »

William H. Macy, Joan Allen join Brie Larson in captive drama 'Room'

11 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Emma Donoghue's "Room" is a tremendous book. Centering on a mother and son locked up against their will in a finished shed, under watch by a man they know little about, the story blossoms from a self-contained kidnapping narrative into an emotionally complex character study as psyches crack. The novel’s structure would prove difficult to adapt in typical three-act screenplay structure. That isn’t stopping "Frank" and "What Richard Did" director Lenny Abrahamson, who starts shooting his adaptation of "Room" with a cast capable of tacking its physically demanding roles. Brie Larson will star in the film alongside just announced castmembers William H. Macy, Joan Allen, and "Smurfs 2" actor Jacob Tremblay as the son. Sean Bridgers, Tom McCamus and Megan Park also join the cast. Hoping for Gillian Flynn-like results, Donoghue adapts from her own novel. The film begins shooting this week at Pinewood Studios.

Coens' 'Hail, Caesar!' gets a release date, Roger Deakins talks going back to film

29 October 2014 4:37 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Universal Pictures has announced that the Coen brothers' "Hail, Caesar!," starring Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes and Scarlett Johansson, among others, will be released on Feb. 5, 2016. That effectively removes it from much awards season discussion that year, but you could sort of gather that, given the subject matter and apparent tone of the film. Like "The Hudsucker Proxy," "The Big Lebowski" and "Burn After Reading" — romps that came after heady prestige pics like "Barton Fink," "Fargo" and "No Country for Old Men" — "Hail, Caesar!" looks like the boys just having a bit of fun. What's interesting about the film, which begins shooting in Los Angeles next month, is that it marks cinematographer Roger Deakins' first trip back to the world of celluloid since his last collaboration with the filmmaker siblings, "True Grit." That was four years ago. He has since embraced digital photography, preferring the Arri Alexa camera on films like "In Time, »

Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar! Set for Release on February 5, 2016

Universal Pictures has set a Hail, Caesar! release date for the next film from writers/directors Joel and Ethan Coen.  The comedy has been slated for release on February 5, 2016, which marks the first 1st Quarter release date for a Coen Brothers film since 2004’s The Ladykillers.  The film takes place in 1950s Hollywood, during the latter years of Hollywood’s Golden Age, and “follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.”  The incredible ensemble cast is led by Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, and Jonah Hill.  More on this curious choice of release date for Hail, Caesar! after the jump. It’s been a decade since a Coen Brothers film wasn’t released in the fall, in the heat of awards season, so it’s a bit odd to see Hail, »

Though his long-standing stint as Barney Stinson on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother has ended, Neil Patrick Harris’ excursion into other TV realms is just beginning, and American Horror Story: Freak Show fans may be excited by the news that Harris and his husband, fellow actor David Burtka, will guest star on Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology show later this season.

Who Is Twisty the Clown? Get To Know the Creepiest Villain of American Horror Story: Freak Show

29 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

There’s no doubting that the new season of American Horror Story is the most frightening and perverse yet. While a number of creator Ryan Murphy’s actors — Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters — have returned, the fourth iteration of the series has also featured a number of new faces. Among them are newcomer Finn Wittrock as the devilish man-child, Dandy Motts, Michael Chiklis as the freak show’s resident strong man, and Wes Bentley as the two-faced Edward Mordrake. While all three have made their own impact on Freak Show, none of them have been more severe than Twisty the Clown played by John Carroll Lynch.

“It’s great to play a character that is so starkly drawn, and it’s really fun to be a bad guy,” Lynch tells La Times. “In this case I really like that Ryan and the writers »

Hit by Lightning Is a Black Comedy Without Blackness or Comedy

28 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Maybe the most interesting thing about Hit by Lightning is that the only two women with speaking roles have separate, faintly unplaceable European accents. Unfortunately, they never share a scene. Through an Internet dating service, Ricky Miller (Jon Cryer), a middle-aged human cringe who manages a chain restaurant, meets Danita (Stephanie Szostak), the embodiment of a moronic, misogynist stereotype — "You're, like, Maxim-hot and you don't even know it," says Ricky. She can actually cite Steve Buscemi films Reservoir Dogs and Fargo, which is supposedly remarkable, making her the dream girlfriend of frat dudes from 1996 and also probably Kevin Smith and definitely Ricky. "Put on Espn and text me when you hear the hockey scores," she tells him, a »
