McDormand’s rallying cry for women in film by Richard Mowe

22 hours ago | | See recent news »

Frances McDormand: "The more we say we need help, the less power we will have." Photo: Richard Mowe What you see with Fargo and Olive Kitteridge star Frances McDormand is what you get (at least most of the time). Her features devoid of make-up and colourful dress thrown together with equally colourful contrasting shoes she took a stance today (May 22) as part of the Cannes Film Festival Women in Motion talks and awards (sponsored by luxury goods brand Kering).

She had a very clear message to her sisters in the industry: they should stop marginalising themselves by constantly harping on about their plight. “There are plenty of opportunities, but the more we say we need help, the less power we will have. Women are on the move - but it is more about catching up,” she said.

Dark Summer and Alien Outpost Hitting DVD/Bluray This July Via Scream Factory/IFC Midnight

15 May 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The partnership between genre favorites Scream Factory and IFC Midnight has definitely been a good one, with the team-up doing quite an excellent job putting out some pretty entertaining films, with everything from Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook to The Vicious BrothersExtraterrestrial all being must have releases for horror fans.  Adding even more solid titles to their partnership roster, Sf & IFC have now announced the July 7th DVD/Bluray release date for both Paul Solet’s Dark Summer and Jabbar Raisani’s Very solid film Alien Outpost. It’s been a while since Solet’s last film (the extremely effective and original 2009 motherly tale, Grace), so Dark Summer hitting shelves is some excellent news, and Alien Outpost is yet another very well done take on both the found footage-like subgenre and alien invasion flicks.

The Coen Brothers Kick Off Cannes 2015

The 68th Cannes International Film Festival previewed its wares today with a press conference illuminated chiefly by jury heads Joel and Ethan Coen’s revelation that they, er, don’t watch television. If they’d made an exception for Fargo they weren’t saying, although they happily shared the festival eve limelight with fellow judging panelists Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller, Rossy De Palma, Xavier Dolan and Guillermo del Toro in a lively media opener.Empire’s festival friends at Getty Images have extended some of their photographic skills for a peak behind the scenes as Cannes gets a last-minute dust and a quick once-over with the Mr Sheen. Click on the images below for a closer look.

6 things we learned from the Coens, Jake and Guillermo at their Cannes press conf

13 May 2015 7:47 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes — If it's opening day at the Cannes Film Festival that means it's time for another awkward press conference with the competition jury. Typically, a Cannes jury is comprised of nine directors, actors and artists from all over the world who have often never met each other beforehand and have no intention of tipping their hands that they might actually already be looking forward to seeing particular films in the competition. The good news is that you can always count on a few members of the international press corps to ask some silly questions or get their facts so inexplicably wrong (guys, "Mad Max: Fury Road" isn't in competition) you wonder how they got credentialed in the first place. The 2015 edition of the festival features a jury headed by former Palme d'Or winners Ethan and Joel Coen (a rare two-headed jury president). Also on hand are Guillermo Del Toro (who, »

Cannes: The Coen Brothers Don’t Watch TV

13 May 2015 7:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When members of the 68th Cannes Film Festival jury met for the first time on Tuesday afternoon, they were told that they could create an award for the films they were about to screen. “Sienna Miller asked that the prize be presented to her,” recalled Joel Coen at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon that helped kick off Cannes. “Guillermo [del Toro] became upset,” Joel joked. “If Sienna gets a prize, Guillermo gets a prize. We just met these people. It’s alarming.”

Regardless of that, the jurors seemed to get along just fine. As co-presidents of this year’s prize-giving committee, the Coen brothers dominated the conversation, offering thoughts on the moviemaking business, their lack of interest in television and what they were looking for as judges.

“It’s not that I don’t like TV,” said Ethan Coen, when asked about an interview he gave to a French magazine about FX’s “Fargo” series. »

Cool Videos: Supercut of William H. Macy's loser performances

30 April 2015 3:13 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

When it comes to playing pathetic, down-on-their-luck, and losers at life characters, no one can do it quite like William H. Macy. From his Jerry Lundegaard from Fargo to his Little Bill in Boogie Nights, the actor has made a career out of playing the saddest of sacks, and Huffington Post has created a fantastic tribute to the actor's "failure" roles in the form of a supercut simply titled "William H. Macy is Cinema's Number One Loser." »

Watch: Supercut Celebrates William H. Macy's Perfect Performances As Our Favorite Cinematic Losers

29 April 2015 2:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A few years ago, in a conversation about Stanley Kubrick’s “The Killing,” a friend said of character actor Elisha Cook Jr., “It’s always fun watching him get abused and humiliated.” Not everyone can convincingly play losers and lowlifes so that you both pity and loathe the characters. One modern-day actor who has picked up where Cook Jr. left off, albeit with much more sadness, is William H. Macy. And a new video tribute highlights the sad and pathetic characters the actor plays.

24 April 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Unstoppable, ass-kicking heroines are still a minority in film and television, but we like to think that things are getting better. Women have been tearing it up in more and more in recent years in high profile Ya adaptations, superhero movies and gripping dramas from the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Tatiana Maslany.

Here are some of the most awesome female leads from television and film, all waiting to be watched on Netflix right now:

Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire)

Young adult adaptations have been all the rage in recent years, with a gratifying number of talented young women taking the lead roles. Out of all of these, Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss has got to be our favourite.

Panem is a terrible place to live, and, on top of that, Katniss is handed some extra helpings of personal tragedy. And while not entirely comfortable or willing »

Watch The First Trailer For Spooky Crime Thriller Every Secret Thing

15 April 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Out of the vast quantity of movies produced for mass consumption, a staggeringly low percentage hail from female directors, screenwriters and producers. This sad-but-true fact brings to light the very matter of representation in one of the most profitable and high-profile industries, and so when films such as Every Secret Thing come along, they’re worth investigating. And, as it goes, the latest effort from director Amy J. Berg (Deliver Us From Evil) centers around a police investigation in a small American town.

In addition to its director, Every Secret Thing has a wealth of veritable female talent attached to its production. It’s based on the novel by Laura Lippman, was adapted for the screen by Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said), is produced by Frances McDormand (Fargo), and stars Elizabeth Banks, Diane Lane, Dakota Fanning and Danielle Macdonald.

Interview: Director David Zellner Talks 'Kumiko The Treasure Hunter,' Urban Legends & Lure Of The Quest Movie

27 March 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A small, offbeat gem of a film that has finally made it to U.S. theaters, David and Nathan Zellner’s "Kumiko the Treasure Hunter" (which incidentally features the all-time Lettuce D’Or winner for Best Performance by a Rabbit), was one of the quieter success stories of the 2014 festival circuit. The strange, sad, bittersweet story of a lonely Japanese woman, played with perfect self-contained command by Rinko Kikuchi, who finds a VHS tape of the Coen Brothers’ "Fargo," and, conflating reality and fiction, journeys all the way to Minnesota, alone in the dead of winter, to try to find the money that Steve Buscemi’s character buries in the snow, 'Kumiko,' despite being inspired by both an internet urban legend and one of the greatest American films ever made, is entirely its own, unusual thing. We loved it (our review is here), and so at the last Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, »

William H. Macy To Direct Lea Michele And Kate Upton In Road Trip Comedy The Layover

26 March 2015 2:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

William H. Macy, star of TV’s Shameless, is continuing to gear his future efforts toward directing. His first major foray arrived in the shape of 2014’s musical drama Rudderless starring Billy Crudup, Anton Yelchin and Felicity Huffman, and scored the actor a wealth of good reviews. Next on his slate is the Jane Fonda-starrer Krystal – of which we know very little – which will then be followed by The Layover.

Described as a road trip sex comedy, because there’s definitely a shortage of those, The Layover has now snared two high profile actors for its leading roles. Glee’s Lea Michele and The Other Woman star Kate Upton will be frolicking about as “a pair of lifelong best friends who decide to avoid their problems by taking a vacation, only to find that their plane has been rerouted due to a hurricane warning.
