30 Years, 16 Films: Celebrate The Coen Brothers' Career With This 6-Minute Supercut

5 February 2016 7:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Hail, Caesar!” opens today, Joel and Ethan Coen’s hotly anticipated follow-up to 2013’s mournful and beautiful “Inside Llewyn Davis.” The Coens have cultivated a habit of following their more somber dramatic works with madcap comic exercises (see: “Raising Arizona” following “Blood Simple,” “The Big Lebowski” as the stoney palate cleanser after “Fargo,” “No Country for Old Men” leading into “Burn After Reading”), and although the jury is still out on whether or not “Hail, Caesar!” is a truly great Coen Brothers movie, it looks to be very much in keeping with that established formula.  The Coens have always peppered their work with loving and self-aware references to old Hollywood productions, so to see them set their comic sights on the pomposity and decadence of this faded old world is a very exciting prospect indeed.

5 February 2016 12:11 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Legion TV Series: Dan Stevens cast as the lead in the upcoming Marvel show.

He delighted in his movie outing The Guest, and on the long-running British TV show Downton Abbey, but now it looks like Dan Stevens is heading to the world of Marvel after being cast in the Legion TV series.

The Legion TV series will be a spin-off from the X-Men comics, and will produced by Fargo showrunner Noah HawleyAubrey Plaza and Jean Smart have also joined the cast with Rachel Keller, and shooting is expected to begin next month.

The Hollywood Reporter reports the Legion TV series casting news, and adds a little detail behind the character that Stevens will play.

David Haller, a man who may be more than human and who has struggled with mental illness since his teenage years. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. »

Hail, Caesar! – The Review

4 February 2016 10:52 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

A kidnapping is at the center of some of the Coen Brothers’ most indelible pictures. From Raising Arizona to Fargo to The Big Lebowski, someone goes missing and it’s through this unfortunate victim’s disappearance that characters are revealed. You can now add Hail, Caesar! to this list. However, while most of these kidnappings spawn a colorful cast of characters where hilarity and morality often sway from the light to the very dark, Hail, Caesar! doesn’t exactly use the taking of the half-wit Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) as the catalyst to propel most of the characters and the story. In fact, it becomes simply just another piece of this collage that the Coens have assembled that is equally both an ode to classic cinema and a biting satire showcasing a facade of what many believe to be what Hollywood is really like.

'X-Men' TV Spinoff 'Legion' Lands Dan Stevens and Aubrey Plaza

4 February 2016 12:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, FX's upcoming X-Men TV series Legion added its first cast member, with Fargo star Rachel Keller signing on as the female lead, although her character wasn't identified. Today we have word from Variety that three more cast members have been added, Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza and Jean Smart. The project reunites Jean Smart with Rachel Keller and Fargo series creator Noah Hawley.

Dan Stevens is portraying the lead character David Haller. Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. But after a strange encounter with a fellow patient, he's confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real. While Rachel Keller's exact character has not been revealed, she is said to be, "a scrappy, optimistic woman in her 20s." This report reveals »

The Greatest Kidnapping Comedies of All-Time

4 February 2016 11:39 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When asked about their inclination for kidnapping comedies, Joel Coen recently told Variety, “I’m not sure why. They are all very different. We should probably give that a rest.” He and Ethan Coen are responsible for three of the finest kidnapping comedies ever made, and are perhaps adding a fourth to their résumé this weekend.

The addition of comedy into a crime story is hardly a new prospect, but the kidnapping comedy is a wonderfully specific little nook in this often darkly funny cinematic world. The Coens practically own this genre — if you can call it a genre –having covered and re-covered it in such uniquely different ways.

Their fourth kidnapping comedy (although I doubt they would refer to any of these films as such), Hail, Caesar!, follows a Hollywood studio fixer (Josh Brolin) whose work life begins to unravel after the kidnapping of one of his biggest stars, »

Every Coen Brothers Movie, Ranked

4 February 2016 11:23 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Coen Brothers, or just Ethan and Joel to their close pals, have never made a bad film. Sure, there have been disappointments. But in a world where Fifty Shades Of Black and Sinister 2 exist, any film by the idiosyncratic pairing is devoured rapidly by cinephiles.  Hail, Caesar! is their latest effort. And to celebrate its release, I decided to take on the unenviable task of ranking the Coen Brothers collection. It was impossible. And I felt as though I betrayed every single film that didn’t finish number one. Which is exactly why they’re cinema’s favorite siblings. This was really fucking difficult. I would make the obligatory Sophie’s Choice comparison, but she only had two children to choose from and neither had the complexity of A Serious Man or seemed likely to match the thrills of Fargo. Here's my ranking. »

Dan Stevens to Topline FX’s ‘Legion’ Pilot with Aubrey Plaza & Jean Smart

4 February 2016 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX’s “Legion” pilot has found its leading man in Dan Stevens, Variety has learned.

The “Downton Abbey” and “The Guest” alum will star alongside Aubrey Plaza and Jean Smart in Noah Hawley’s Marvel project, and previously announced cast member Rachel Keller.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this March.

Stevens will star as David, a haunted man who was diagnosed as schizophrenic at a young age, and he’s trying to find his way back to sanity, but he’s getting tired and is about to give up when he meets the girl of his dreams.

Plaza has been cast as David’s (Stevens) friend Lenny. Despite a life of drugs and alcohol abuse, she knows that any day now her life is gonna turn around, which gives her the likeable energy of the impossible optimist despite her rough demeanor.

Smart will play Melanie, a nurturing, »

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »

Review: The Coens use 'Hail, Caesar!' to take a silly but smart look at Hollywood's soul

3 February 2016 4:05 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As I was driving home from talking to Joel and Ethan Coen about their latest film, I called my parents, laughing about the way the film folds Hollywood truth into Hollywood fiction. I mentioned that the Loretta Young story was an obvious inspiration for one thread of the film, and my parents seemed confused by the reference. They knew who Loretta Young was, no doubt, but they had never heard the defining story of her personal life because back when Young was still an active movie star, my parents were part of the audience who were protected from the truth to help keep those movie star images squeaky-clean. Eddie Mannix, played by Josh Brolin, is officially listed as the Head of Physical Production for Capitol Studios, but what he really does is handle problems. He's a fixer. And there was an actual Eddie Mannix who worked for MGM. If you remember Hollywoodland, »

Listen: Coens’ Recent 40-Minute Talk on ‘Fargo’; Go Behind-the-Scenes of ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 11:41 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With Hail, Caesar! arriving in theaters this week the Internet (at least the section that talks about movies) will be alight with bits and bobs concerning the films of Joel and Ethan Coen. We’ll avoid stoking any flames with something such as a “definitive” ranking — such is the nature of their oeuvre that numerous people will tell you Intolerable Cruelty is one of their best and Fargo deserves a spot near the bottom, or literally any number of possible combinations — and instead share a number of materials relating to the new film (of which we’re great admirers), the older titles, and the Coen brothers in general.

First up, the brothers have told Variety that they aren’t planning any sequel to The Big Lebowski, but could see a Barton Fink follow-up. “We’re going to do a Barton Fink sequel at some point,” Ethan says, noting they haven’t written it yet. »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

Review: With 'Horace and Pete,' Did Louis C.K. Con Us Into Paying For a Two-Act Play?

1 February 2016 7:33 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Is "pulling a Beyonce" the official term for when a creator suddenly drops a new work on his or her unsuspecting fanbase? I like it, if only because comparing Louis C.K. and Queen Bey isn't something you get to do too often. But this weekend, we had the opportunity to do so thanks to the surprise release of "Horace and Pete" Episode 1, which C.K. launched directly to fans online for $5 a pop.  Read More: Louis C.K.
