The show.s producer, Essential Media.s Ian Collie, initially thought the series would bow next year, closer to the start of the ratings season, but the scheduling move made perfect sense once Nine explained it, he told If.

‘Miss Sloane’ Trailer: Jessica Chastain Fights for Gun Control in John Madden’s Thriller

13 September 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In 2015, Jonathan Perera‘s script for Miss Sloane made the 2015 Blacklist (a list of the best-unproduced screenplays). Not too long after making the list, it drew interest from director John Madden (Shakespeare in Love) and actress Jessica Chastain (The Martian). Chastain stars as a lobbyist in Madden’s latest film, which also features Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights), Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Jon […]

13 September 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This past April, Jessica Chastain co-starred in the fantasy action adventure film “The Huntsmen: Winter’s War” and made a guest appearance on the HBO animated series “Animals,” but by the end of the year, she will take center stage in the new political thriller “Miss Sloane.” The film follows Sloane (Chastain), a political lobbyist on the brink of burnout who tries to push gun control measures in America. Its supporting cast features a murderer’s row of character actors: Mark Strong (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Beyond The Lights”), Michael Stuhlbarg (“A Serious Man”), Alison Pill (“Snowpiercer”), Jake Lacy (“Carol”), John Lithgow (“Interstellar”), and Sam Waterston (“Law & Order”).

‘Barry’ Review: The Best Obama Biopic Yet, But Not the Whole Story — Toronto Review

11 September 2016 8:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There are so many reasons for the movies’ recent fascination with Barack Obama’s formative years — this summer saw the release of “Southside With You,” a chintzy rom-com that chronicled Obama’s idyllic first date with his future wife — but chief among them is the feeling that he’s the first modern President who feels like a real person. Which is not to say that Bill Clinton is an android or that George W. Bush is (necessarily) a stack of hay that’s been stuffed into a business suit and enchanted by a vengeful wizard, but that Obama came to lead America in large part because he is America, a one-man melting pot whose vagabond life was driven towards a singular destiny. He knows what it means to be an outsider in this country, to be rejected for attempting to make good on the promise of his homeland. He did drugs. »

Why the Emmys Should Crown ‘The Americans,’ Not ‘Game of Thrones’: IndieWire’s Emmy Endorsements (Drama)

16 August 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Drama Series

Nominees:

The Americans

Better Call Saul

Downton Abbey

Game of Thrones

Homeland

House of Cards

Mr. Robot

IndieWire’s Vote: “The Americans

We’re obviously big fans of a lot of these shows. “Better Call Saul,” “Mr. Robot” and even “House of Cards” are deserving nominees, and there’s no shame in voting for any one of them. But come on: “The Americans” getting an Emmy nod for Outstanding Drama Series is like the Chicago Cubs reaching the World Series. If they made it this far — finally — they better freaking win. “The Americans” has been the best drama on cable for four years. An intricate spy thriller side-by-side with an equally compelling family drama, Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields have crafted a series as appealing as it is relevant. When it comes to FX’s best show (which is saying something), it’s more than just “you should »

Geoffrey Rush will play Albert Einstein

15 August 2016 10:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

National Geographic Channel is venturing into scripted series territory, and for their first drama, the cable network has cast Geoffrey Rush to play Albert Einstein. The Aussie will take on the role of the famed physicist for anthology drama Genius, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It will be Rush’s first major American series television role. (He did win an Emmy for HBO-bbc collaboration The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, a TV movie that aired in 2004.) The first season of the anthology series is based on the acclaimed Einstein biography by Walter Isaacson. Ron Howard is directing the first episode of Genius, and Howard’s longtime collaborator Brian Grazer is producing. The Oscar winner who so entertained us with Shakespeare in Love and Pirates of the Caribbean seems like a solid fit for the iconic scientist. He probably won’t even have to wear a wig for Einstein’s recognizable hair. »

‘Finding Altamira’ Trailer: Antonio Banderas Struggles Between Faith & Science In True Story

3 August 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The tension between science and religion rages on far into the 21st century, but the two have been in conflict with each other since the beginning. The new film “Finding Altamira,” directed by Hugh Hudson (“Chariots of Fire”), places that conflict at its center. Antonio Banderas stars as Marcelino Sanz de Sautuola y de la Pedrueca, an archaeologist who in 1878 accidentally discovers a cave filled with ancient paintings. When it turns out that the art is over 10,000 years old, it inspires wrath and condemnation from religious and scientific communities who refuse to accept their conception of human history has been flawed. Now, Marcelino must choose to do what’s right, even though it might put his family and reputation in jeopardy. The film also stars Golshifteh Farahani (“About Elly”), Rupert Everett (“Shakespeare In Love”), Pierre Niney (“Yves Saint Laurent”), and more. Watch a trailer for the film below.

The 20 Best R-Rated Comedies of the Last 20 Years

2 August 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Let’s acknowledge it up front: Rating films for their content is a dubious process at best and a dangerous one at worst. Trying to place disparate, diverse films into a handful of age-based categories has rarely come without controversy, especially when the MPAA ratings board deems a hint of language and nudity untenable while excusing wide swaths of violence for lower classifications. Yet, there’s a way that a “R” rating has become shorthand for a specific type of comedy. Geared toward older viewers (or those on the precipice of adulthood), these are the laugh-based moviegoing experiences so confident in their own ability to attract an audience that they’re willing to accept what some might see as a theatrical release stigma.

These are films that luxuriate in moving swiftly past their allotment of one, non-sexual use of everyone’s favorite four-letter “f word,” further flaunting their disregard for »

Emmy Voters Suffer from Awards Lag Syndrome

18 July 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“You were robbed,” I told Jay Duplass at Amazon Studios’ “Gleason” premiere last week. He was a tad crestfallen about not landing a supporting actor Emmy nomination for his excellent performance as Josh Pfefferman on “Transparent,” until I reminded him how hard it is to get nominated for the first time. There’s often a lag.

Look at “The Americans.” It took four seasons of campaigning and increasingly positive reviews for it to finally land a Best Drama slot this year. The TV Academy turns to the same old popular favorites so often that it’s tough for someone new to break into the ranks.

This year, during the intense campaigning for the Emmy Awards, I realized that my hard-won understanding of how Oscar voters think does not apply to the TV Academy. I felt out of step with some of the Emmy pundits on Gold Derby who were picking »

Gun Lobby Movie Miss Sloane Set For Awards Season

15 July 2016 4:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It usually takes Hollywood two years or more to turn out theatrical movies about real events and issues, but the subject of gun legislation in the U.S has been rumbling on for so long, it’s surprising a film like Miss Sloane hasn’t arrived sooner. It will surely benefit from the currently heightened profile of the gun law debate, however, and this sharp social relevance may well have influenced the decision to set its release date for the midst of awards season this year.

Directed by Academy Award nominee John Madden (Shakespeare In Love), Miss Sloane is the debut screenplay of newcomer Jonathan Perera. It stars Jessica Chastain – who has an Oscar nomination of her own – as the titular Elizabeth Sloane, who works as a lobbyist in Washington D.C. As she seeks to follow her ambitions, she takes on the influential national gun lobby and tries to »
