Is Warren Beatty’s Alden Ehrenreich-Starrer ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Too Funny for Oscar?

20 July 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Warren Beatty is a known entity in Hollywood. He’s a brilliant and controlling writer-director-producer-star who will talk anyone’s ear off. He’s indecisive. He will take as much time as he can get to burnish a movie to glossy perfection. And he’s hell-bent on success. That’s why he’s Warren Beatty.

But he’s less well known to the general moviegoing public.

While he’s consistently brilliant, from “Heaven Can Wait” and “Bonnie and Clyde” to “Dick Tracy,” he’s also known for dramatic box office highs and lows. He’s had amazing successes, such as 1982 classic period romance “Reds,” which won three Oscars (including Beatty’s only win, as Best Director). Over the decades Beatty has been nominated for 14 Oscars, and received the Thalberg Award. But he also starred in such over-budget flops as $90-million “Town and Country” (2001, $6 .7 million domestic), which was “directed by Peter Chelsolm, »

Rules Don't Apply for Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich in first trailer for Warren Beatty's new film

Rules Don't Apply for Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich in first trailer for Warren Beatty's new filmRules Don't Apply for Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich in first trailer for Warren Beatty's new filmAdriana Floridia7/14/2016 2:34:00 Pm

It's been nearly twenty years since we saw famous actor/director Warren Beatty behind the camera, and in 2016, he's back.

His new film, Rules Don't Apply, tells the story of an aspiring actress (Lily Collins) and her driver (Alden Ehrenreich) who both work for billionaire Howard Hughes (Beatty). From the first trailer, it looks like a quirky romance, and has a rather impressive cast, from the up and coming young leads, to Beatty's real life wife Annette Bening.

Beatty is best known for directing the critically acclaimed films Reds, Dick Tracy and Bulworth, and so his return to the big screen is definitely welcome. We're also pretty excited about the casting of Ehrenreich, »

Watch Wild Trailer for Warren Beatty's First Movie in 18 Years

14 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Warren Beatty's long-in-the-works movie about Howard Hughes, Rules Don't Apply, has been given its first star-studded trailer.

The upbeat clip blends historical fiction and rom-com (à la Woody Allen's recent films) and finds Beatty playing the obsessive-compulsive mogul as an eccentric billionaire goofball — a far cry from Leonardo DiCaprio's portrayal of Hughes in Martin Scorsese's 2004 biopic, The Aviator.

While Beatty scores several laugh lines in the trailer ("Billionaire, goddammit, not millionaire," he grumbles while watching footage of himself, "and what the hell happened to the close-up of me in the cockpit? »

It’s been 18 years since Warren Beatty was behind the camera with the political comedy Bulworth. Now he’s finally back in the director’s chair with a project that has been kicking around for a long time.

Watch: First Trailer for 'Rules Don't Apply' Directed by Warren Beatty

14 July 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"In this town, aren't those the rules?" Fox has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Rules Don't Apply, the latest feature directed by Warren Beatty since Bulworth in 1998. Beatty also stars in this as Howard Hughes, who contracts a young actress - played by Lily Collins - to work for him in Los Angeles. When she arrives, she meets her personal driver played by Alden Ehrenreich (who will next be playing a young Han Solo in the spin-off) and falls for him, but can't break Hughes' rule of having a relationship with an employee. The full cast includes Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Matthew Broderick, Martin Sheen, Annette Bening, Oliver Platt and Steve Coogan. This looks quite fun and especially charming and amusing. It definitely has an old Hollywood feel to it, but not as much as Hail, Caesar. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer for Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply, »

‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Trailer: Warren Beatty Stars as Howard Hughes In 1950’s Hollywood Rom-Com

14 July 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warren Beatty’s new romantic comedy “Rules Don’t Apply” follows an aspiring actress, a lovable driver, and the eccentric Hollywood legend Howard Hughes (played by Beatty himself) as they struggle with each other’s own idiosyncrasies. Set in Hollywood in 1958, small town beauty queen and Baptist virgin Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins) arrives to Los Angeles to work under Howard Hughes. At the airport, she meets her driver Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich), a religious Methodist who’s engaged to be married to his middle school sweetheart. Soon they fall for each other, and their attraction puts their respective religious convictions to the test, and also places them in violation of Hughes’ #1 rule: No employee will have a relationship with a contract actress. But as Hughes’ behavior becomes more erratic and strange, it intersects with Marla and Frank’s lives in challenging, compelling ways, leaving no one unchanged. The film also »

It’s been almost twenty years since Warren Beatty directed and starred in a feature film. 1998’s Bulworth was criminally underrated at the time, but the story of Sen. Jay Billington Bulworth has thankfully gathered an audience in the years since its release. Rules Don’t Apply is his new film, casting a glance at Hollywood of […]

The 20 Best American Political Films of the Last 20 Years

29 June 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Upticks in the volume or quality of movies about American politics aren’t particularly good news; historically, it’s a pretty reliable warning sign that things in the real world aren’t going so well. And so, in the 20 years since IndieWire launched, we’ve seen a barrage of great movies about American politics. Yay?

Watch enough of them, and it’s hard to imagine how this country actually functions (or endures). These films can form a grim echo chamber that might seem it leaves us with little to celebrate.

And yet, there’s real joy to be found if you know where to look. Many of these movies are comedies — our increasingly absurd times inspire increasingly absurd movies. “Wag the Dog” seemed like outlandish satire when it premiered in 1997, but 19 years later it feels like a stone’s throw away from the truth. On the other hand, if 1997 audiences »

It’s been almost two decades since Warren Beatty has directed a film. He last starred in the disastrous Town & Country, but his last directorial effort was 1998’s Bulworth, a hilarious and somewhat overlooked film. The director is famously known for taking his time with each project, but this is his longest hiatus yet. However, we’ll soon see Beatty […]

'Rules Don't Apply' to the long-rumored Howard Hughes film by Warren Beatty

18 May 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warren Beatty’s been talking about Howard Hughes as long as I’ve lived in Los Angeles. When I was in high school, one of the things I did was devour entire careers on home video as a way of educating myself about various filmmakers and eras. I was aware of Warren Beatty before that, certainly, and remember Heaven Can Wait in particular as a big commercial moment for Beatty. I loved that movie and the weird goofball guy who starred in it, but it was almost a decade later when I finally plunged headlong into his filmography and suddenly realized that I kind of adore Beatty. And why not? Look at that body of work in front of the camera first. He’s been relatively selective over the years, and considering what a giant movie star he was considered at one time, he never really became omnipresent like some of his peers. »

First Images Hit From Warren Beatty's New Film 'Rules Don't Apply'

18 May 2016 12:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's been a good while since actor/director Warren Beatty has directed a film. Over fifteen years, in fact. Not since Bulworth has Beatty sat in the director's chair. That's something that's poised to change this November with the period comedy Rules Don't Apply.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the story follows an actress and a driver who both work for the Howard Hughes (played by Beatty), the eccentric billionaire, tycoon, aviator, and all-around pusher of boundaries. Despite Hughes' strict policy against employees becoming romantically involved, the two succumb to each other's charm.

Beatty was careful to point out that the movie is not a Howard Hughes biopic, and that the two lovers would be the focal point of the film.

Rules Don't Apply stars Mortal Instruments actress Lily Collins and new Han Solo star Alden Ehrenreich. Rounding out the supporting cast are Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan, »

First Look at Warren Beatty’s ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Starring Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins

18 May 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With shooting taking place back in early 2014, for any other film, we might be worried about the long wait it has taken for Warren Beatty to complete his Howard Hughes drama. However, with the director known to spend his time in the editing room, delicately putting together the pieces of his puzzle, so to speak, we’ll gladly wait. Finally completed this year, the drama’s been picked up by 20th Century Fox and now we have the first look, title, and release date.

Coming from EW (in case you didn’t pick up on the egregious watermarks), we can see Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!, a certain new Star Wars film) and Lily Collins (Mirror Mirror) in Rules Don’t Apply, which marks Beatty’s first directorial effort in nearly two decades, following Bulworth. The drama, set in 1958, follows Collins’ character as an actress and Ehrenreich as her driver, two »

Warren Beatty's on the line. It has been 18 years since the Oscar-winning director last stepped behind the camera with Bulworth, and even longer since he first flirted with making a film that involved eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes.

Beatty's epic hiatus will finally end on Nov. 11, when 20th Century Fox releases Rules Don't Apply - an unconventional love story set in 1958 Hollywood that Beatty also wrote, produced and acts in.

First Look: Warren Beatty's "Rules Don't Apply"

18 May 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though shot some time ago, actor and filmmaker Warren Beatty has been keeping his latest film under wraps. EW lifted the lid on the film today, revealing that it has scored the title "Rules Don't Apply".

His fifth directorial effort overall and first since 1998's "Bulworth," Beatty stars in the movie as the reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes. Beatty, who hasn't been seen on screen since 2001's "Town & Country," has also enlisted some impressive talent including future Han Solo star Alden Ehrenreich along with Lily Collins, Haley Bennett, Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Steve Coogan, Martin Sheen, Ed Harris, Oliver Platt and Annette Bening.

Talking about the film, he says he's long been drawn to Hughes but stresses this isn't going to be a "The Aviator"-style serious drama about him: "I never lost my curiosity about him. It's just that I don't run around doing movies all the time. »

Warren Beatty Eyeing ‘Dick Tracy’ Sequel, Howard Hughes Movie Gets Release Date

13 April 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: More than a quarter century after he brought Dick Tracy to the screen, Warren Beatty is considering making a sequel.

The news was revealed by Arnon Milchan on Wednesday at CinemaCon, as the producer accepted the Legends of Cinema Award from Beatty.

Asked after the lunch ceremony about the project, Beatty confirmed, “I’m serious about it, but I am slow about these things.” He was whisked away by a crowd of admirers before he could make any additional comments. But Milchan also confirmed that a project is being discussed and could be completed within two years.

Beatty is already at work on a film in which he plays the aged billionaire Howard Hughes. That movie is also for Milchan’s New Regency Productions, the powerhouse production company that won best picture awards for “12 Years a Slave” and “Birdman.” They expect a fall or winter release for Beatty’s long-gestating passion project, »
