Chloe Sevigny Has Heard of Birds and Loves Them

4 June 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Good evening, America. Chloe Sevigny -- or at least comedian Drew Droege's version of Chloe Sevigny -- is back with plenty of opinions about birds. Se's not quite sure how to pronounce that word, but she's sure she loves them. Birds, I mean. Or is it Byirdz? Here are some other Chloe classics that won't remind you of "Boys Don't Cry" at all.   Behold, birthdays:     Behold, Halloween:     And of course, resolutions:     Congratulations. You now have permission never to speak to Jeanne Tripplehorn ever again. »

Cast Heads into the Joe Dante-Produced Dark

23 May 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

It didn't take long for Nick Basile's thriller Dark to surpass its fundraising goal on Kickstarter last year, and it no doubt helped that Joe Dante's name was attached to the project. As production gets ready to begin, the cast has just been filled out, and we've got the latest for ya today.

Variety reports that The Call and "Bates Motel"'s Michael Eklund and Boys Don't Cry's Brendan Sexton have rounded out the cast of the psychological thriller, which will also star Whitney Able (Monsters) and Alexandra Breckenridge ("American Horror Story").

In the film, written by Elias and directed by Basile, Able plays a disturbed young woman who must confront her worst fears when she finds herself trapped alone in a New York City loft during the 2003 blackout.

Kathryn Belli, Dave Boulton, Basile, and Elias will produce alongside executive producer Joe Dante and his company Renfield Productions. »

Watch: Kimberly Peirce Discusses the Obstacles of Making Movies in Moving Keynote Address at AFI Women's Directing Showcase

2 May 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Every time we get hired, every time we work, every time we push back, we make change." Earlier this week, the AFI Directing Workshop For Women (AFI Dww) held its annual short film showcase at the Directors Guild of America theater in Hollywood, where "Boys Don't Cry" director Kimberly Peirce gave a heartfelt, personal keynote address about what it is like to be a female director -- including the above quote. Using anecdotes about her experience as a director both during and in between projects, Peirce spun a funny, engaging narrative where she not only highlighted the roadblocks she has faced along the way, but also communicated her unwavering passion for the craft and enthusiasm for the future. Given the recent circulation of various statistics, infographics and editorials highlighting the lack of opportunities for women in Hollywood, the 40th anniversary of AFI Dww came at an opportune time. AFI Dww is more than just an. »

Here are the Movies Coming and Going on Netflix This May

1 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every month when Netflix mixes up its roster of films to stream online, we lose the valuable entertainment of a number of great movies. But the silver lining to that dark cloud lies in the number of films that you may have been waiting for, for quite some time. As we enter the month of May and (hopefully) sunnier weather, these movies -- which include a combination of favorite characters as "James Bond," "Forrest Gump" and "Godzilla" -- may give you more reason to stay indoors and tune in. Check out the list of films that will now be coming to a small screen near you: A View To A Kill (007 James Bond) All I Want Backdraft Bed Of Roses Beethoven Boys Don't Cry Bram Stoker's Dracula Candyman Cursed Diggstown Encounters At The End Of The World Fantastic Voyage Federal Hill Fido Final Fantasy VII Advent Children For Your Eyes Only »

Oscar Bait: 'You're Not You' with Hilary Swank coming to theaters this year

8 April 2014 5:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Let's dust off the old part-time specialty feature "Oscar Bait" with some news on an acquisition, shall we? Now, this time last year a lot of eyes were turned toward Naomi Watts in what seemed like a baity role as Princess Diana in "Diana." Then the film waited for a distributor, and waited, and waited. The writing was on the wall by the time Entertainment One grabbed it and it went nowhere with critics, audiences and, certainly, awards-voting bodies. This year, the upstart distributor has another play that may or may not work out on the circuit, "You're Not You" starring two-time Best Actress Oscar winner Hilary Swank. Emmy Rossum, Josh Duhamel, Loretta Divine, Ernie Hudson and Marcia Gay Harden also star. Here's the official synopsis: "'You're Not You' centers on the relationship between Kate (Swank), a woman who has been immobilized by Als - also known as »

DVD Review: 'Carrie'

8 April 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆Carrie, Stephen King's first published novel, has been adapted several times for the big screen, Brian De Palma's 1976 version being the most well-known and successful. The latest incarnation hails from Boys Don't Cry (1999) director Kimberly Peirce, who delivers an efficient, yet prosaic supernatural thriller that does its best to rework the story to fit in with modern day audiences (nods to social media come thick and fast throughout). Raised by her deeply religious mother Margaret (Julianne Moore), Carrie (the Kick-Ass franchise's Chloë Grace Moretz) is a timid teenager, whose life is made worse by the fact that she's constantly teased and tormented by her fellow students.

In a Nutshell: Carrie

7 March 2014 10:40 AM, PST | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

A white knuckle ride in more ways than one, Carrie is the latest in a long line of Hollywood remakes. Messing with Brian De Palma's much loved original is enough to bring anybody out in a sweat, but in truth, we're surprised it's taken this long to get here. Especially when you consider how many other films, lesser horror movies, have already sampled the remake treatment. Carrie, however, has a few things going for it. Themes of bullying that remain present to this day, sturdy direction from Kimberley Pierce (Boys Don't Cry) and strong leads in Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore. For those of you who have spent one too many nights getting yourself ready or the prom, Carrie is a reimagining of the classic Stephen King tale about Carrie White (Chloe Moretz), a naive girl outcast by her peers and sheltered by her deeply religious mother (Julianne Moore »

On the Job With Jennifer Lee, Director of Frozen

28 February 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's a rare thing for any first-time director's film to be nominated for - let alone win - a Golden Globe, but Jennifer Lee's debut movie, Frozen, did just that this year. The win was a meaningful one for Jennifer, who, by her own admission, took a "circuitous" route to the director's chair. She started her career in the world of literature, working in book publishing, before going to film school at Columbia and later landing a gig as cowriter of Wreck-It Ralph. Still, the shift wasn't completely out of left field; serendipitously enough, Jennifer's dream as a kid was to become a Disney animator. Frozen gave Jennifer a unique opportunity to celebrate "wild and wonderful" girls like her childhood self and her own 10-year-old daughter, Agatha. "I was the one that would stain my dress the minute I put it on," she told us with a laugh. The »

Can American Hustle Sweep the Oscars?

28 February 2014 5:50 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Just as horse racing has its Triple Crown, red-carpet season has its own impressive awards haul that only the boldest of films aspire to win: the "Big Five" at the Oscars. Taking home a trophy in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay categories is considered a "sweep" at the Academy Awards, and this year's contest has American Hustle vying for the honor. In the 86-year history of the awards, 42 films have been nominated across the big five categories, with only three ever pulling off the sweep: 1934's It Happened One Night, 1975's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest »

Stranger danger: gay characters and the country don't mix

21 February 2014 3:01 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

When Lgbt people leave the safety of the city in films, it usually spells bad news – and Stranger by the Lake and Tom at the Farm don't buck the trend

Gay people and the city have been a good match since Sodom and Gomorrah. From the molly houses of 18th-century London to 1970s San Francisco via prewar Berlin, the urban environment has always been the natural habitat of queer culture – a place where Lgbt people can set their own rules, form their own families, be anonymous when they want to and find company when they fancy it. The countryside, on the other hand, is the place they escape from – a realm of social conformity with limited opportunities for culture, sex or socialising, and perhaps even a site of danger.

That's the stereotype, anyway, both in reality and on screen. Innumerable movies with claims to gay-classic status are inseparable from their urban settings: London has Victim, »

Exclusive: Director Kimberly Peirce Talks Carrie

16 January 2014 1:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, I was invited to a special press event where I got to chat with director Kimberly Peirce about her horror remake Carrie, which recently took home the People's Choice Award for Best Horror Movie, and is currently avaialable on Blu-ray and DVD. However, the interview wasn't the only thing on the agenda.

Even if you haven't seen this remake yet, you likely know that the "blood dump" is one of the most iconic moments from Brian De Palma's original Carrie, and the scene is just as memorable in the remake, which centers on a tormented high school girl (Chloe Moretz) who discovers her telekinetic abilities. To celebrate the Blu-ray and DVD release, Fox Home Entertainment invited me to get a bucket of blood dumped on me. How could I pass up such an offer? So, before you check out my exclusive interview with Kimberly Peirce, where »

"Carrie" Director Kimberly Peirce Talks Pig's Blood, On-Set Injuries & That Crazy Alternate Ending!

16 January 2014 1:15 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Director Kimberly Peirce is taking the horror genre by storm with the remake of the cult classic, "Carrie." The movie, which is now out on Blu-ray and DVD, centers on a bullied teenage girl (played by Chloe Grace Moretz) who discovers that she has telekinetic powers and decides to dish out retribution against her tormentors, including her abusive mother (played by Julianne Moore). From her directorial debut with "Boys Don't Cry," the tragic story of Brandon Teena, to the Iraq war drama "Stop-Loss," "Carrie" presented Peirce with a different set of challenges -- re-telling a story that had already been made famous by Stephen King’s novel and Brian De Palma's iconic film. But, Peirce brought her own perspective and insight as a woman to the movie, creating her own version that she calls a "superhero origin story."toofab's Rachel Hoffman sat down with Peirce this week to talk »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"20 Feet From Stardom"

What's It About? Being a back-up singer is no easy task, especially when you're working so hard and getting so little credit. Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Judith Hill, and other singers take front and center in this doc about the women who've revolutionized the music we listen to.

Why We're In: The doc features fantastic footage of performances from every era of modern music -- we dare you not to get teary when you see and hear Luther Vandross doing backup with Fischer and others for David Bowie. Interviews with Mick Jagger, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, and Bette Midler are icing on the cake.

Interview: Kimberly Peirce Talks 'Carrie' Sequels, Comedy 'Butch Academy' & Says 'Silent Star' May Come Back

14 January 2014 9:09 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filmmaker Kimberley Peirce has never been afraid of a challenge. From her directorial debut "Boys Don't Cry," telling the tragic story of Brandon Teena, to the Iraq war drama "Stop-Loss," Peirce has tackled difficult subject matter head on. But last year's remake of "Carrie" provided the director a different set challenges, foremost of which was re-telling a story that had already been made famous thanks to Brian De Palma's iconic horror film. But bringing her own perspective and insight as a woman, Peirce spun her own version, one she likened to a "superhero origin story." And with the film headed to home video today—complete with deleted scenes and an alternate ending—we got a chance last week to chat with Peirce over the phone about the movie. And in our brief chat she shared with us her thoughts on a sequel, the status of her Judd Apatow produced »
