24 November 2016 11:33 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cinephiles express their admiration for their favorite films in many different ways, but one creative couple from England has gone above and beyond the line of duty. David and Sarah have started the Instagram account Movie Cats where they recreate classic movie scenes only with cats in the starring role. So far, the two have staged scenes from “The Shining,” “Alien,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” “Ghost” and “American Beauty.” See the adorable photos below.

“We have two cats (who are almost identical) named Willow and Tara, though Tara is featured in most of our movie cat pics,” David and Sarah told The Dodo this past Monday. “We started doing it as a picture question in our pub quiz’s film/TV round, and it went down really well so we made it a regular thing. »

‘The Night Of’ Review: Season 1 Finale is Too Satisfying For Its Own Good

28 August 2016 9:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: Spoilers ahead for “The Night Of” season finale.]

A collective shriek of joy could be heard around the United States Sunday night, as our eight-week-long wait for the answer to one question was finally given: Yes, John Stone saved the cat.

Though there has been some debate over the metaphorical significance of the orange and white shorthair, it became clear early on in “The Night Of’s” season (series?) finale who, exactly, the furry feline represented: Naz (Riz Ahmed) — the former college kid on trial for murder who John Stone, “Attorney at Law,” was trying oh so desperately to save.

And he did! A mandatory staple of the legal drama, this case meant more to Stone than any of his others’, in part because — as said in a heartfelt closing argument — Stone believed Naz to be innocent. So, the second he »

‘Big Lebowski’ Spinoff ‘Going Places’: First Photo of John Turturro as Jesus Revealed

22 August 2016 6:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Eight-year-olds, dude.

The first photo of pederast and ace bowler Jesus Quintana has officially surfaced since news broke that the character played by John Turturro in the Coen brothers’ “The Big Lebowski” was finally getting his own spinoff movie, “Going Places.” Birth.death.movies broke the news earlier this month that the film was already a few weeks into production, and on Friday, actress Susan Sarandon posted an Instagram of Turturro reprising the role.

Sarandon co-stars in the film alongside Bobby Cannavale and Audrey Tautou. Cannavale plays a thief named Petey who is competing with Quintana for the affection of a woman (Tautou). Sarandon plays a criminal who just got out of prison after serving a long sentence. The dramatic comedy that was initially going to be titled “100 Minutes with Jesus” is »

Robert Downey, Jr. and Nic Pizzolatto Developing ‘Perry Mason’ Reboot for HBO — Report

15 August 2016 4:49 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Nic Pizzolatto may not be involved with “True Detective” season three — which itself is still far from a certainty — but his involvement with HBO is far from over. Along with Robert Downey Jr., the writer and producer is in talks with HBO for a new drama project. Variety first reported the news.

Few concrete details are known about the project, though it looks to be related to the “Perry Mason” reboot that Downey Jr. was previously developing with Warner Bros. as a feature film for several years. (This project, whatever it is, will be a series.) The two will executive produce along with Susan Downey, with Pizzolatto writing and Rdj starring — his first television role, should it come to pass, since his high-profile role in Ally McBeal some 15 years ago.

‘Last Week Tonight’: John Oliver Enlists Keegan-Michael Key for the Most Twisted Auto Dealership Ever

15 August 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

What does HBO’s John Oliver know about predatory lending by used car dealers? A lot, actually. On Sunday’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” Oliver and Keegan-Michael Key appeared in a sketch that breaks down just how disgusting the used car trade is.

Watch: Last Week Tonight’ Targets Journalism With Rose Byrne & Jason Sudeikis ‘Spotlight’ Parody

Posing as salesmen at “Crazy Johnny’s Used Cars,” the pair gives an overly transparent pitch to viewers about the nature of used car loans. “Is your credit so bad that giving you a high interest loan will basically trap you under a mountain of debt from which there is no reasonable hope for escape?” Oliver asked. “We don’t care!” Key then tries to sell viewers on a beat up sedan that has “four tires, up to one engine, and a beeping device which emits a sound that will haunt your dreams. »

John Oliver Trashes Woody Allen and His ‘Cafe Society’ On ‘Last Week Tonight’ – Watch

15 August 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Last Week Tonight” host John Oliver excels at drawing unexpected comparisons between people, places and things — often in the middle of one of his long-form rants — and last night’s episode of the HBO news talk series featured pretty stellar jab at Woody Allen couched in a series of jabs at Donald Trump.

Oliver was ostensibly reporting on another wild week in Trump’s campaign — one marked by a series of walkbacks, walkback walkbacks and maybe even an actual walkback walkback walkback — when he snuck in a dig at Allen and his latest film, “Cafe Society.”

Movie Poster of the Week: Cats in Czech and Polish Movie Posters

30 March 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Above: 1965 Czech poster for Three Fables of Love (Blasetti, Bromberger, Clair, Berlanga, Italy/Spain, 1962). Designer: Karel Teissig.Two events provoked this article. First of all, last week I saw the wonderful 1963 Czech fable The Cassandra Cat (a.k.a. When the Cat Comes) at New York’s newest cinephile hotspot, the Metrograph. In this charming New Wave satire a cat wearing dark glasses is brought into a small town by a circus troupe and, when his glasses are removed, the townspeople are revealed in their true colors: namely neon shades of purple, yellow and pink, each representing their vices or virtues. The highlight of the film for me, aside from a psychedelic freak-out dance party in the middle of the film, comes when all the children of the town march through the street bearing large drawings of cats. Chris Marker would have loved this film.The second event was the »
