Raindance 2014: Lucky Stiff Review

9 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Christopher Ashley

Cast: Dominic Marsh, Nikki M. James, Pamela Shaw, Jason Alexander, Dennis Farina

Certificate: Tbc

Running Time: 78 minutes

Synopsis: A young down-and-out British shoe salesman named Harry Witherspoon takes his dead American uncle (a murdered casino manager) to Monte Carlo for the best time of his life – a week of fun, dancing, gambling and sun. If the young man fulfills his uncle’s request to the letter, he will inherit the $6 million left to him. If he doesn’t, the money will go to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn.

It’s likely you’re reading this review having never heard of Lucky Stiff; Thn certainly hadn’t. If we had, we might have known that in 1988 it debuted off-Broadway and, whilst only running for 15 performances, it won a prestigious theatre award. We may have also been aware that it has had several worldwide revivals including, in 1997, a run in the West End. »

Genre Films Can Break the Oscar Norm

24 September 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance as a sleazy freelance TV reporter determined to go to any length in search of crime footage in Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler could get him “recognized as one of the most daring actors working in Hollywood today” and has been called some of the “best work of his career.” With this type of praise, award contention usually follows, but historically speaking, “genre films” don’t fare well at the Oscars. It’s not impossible for films that deviate from the Oscar norm — biopics, period pieces or dramas — to secure Oscar nominations for the actors involved, but looking back through the years, from 2000 to the present, shows that these films constitute a lower percentage of overall nominees.

Musicals are a type of “genre film” that actors have managed to score Oscar nominations for, though they have had more difficulty doing so since the late 60s. »

Baz Dazzled!

22 September 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here with some Spectacular Spectacular news!

This one goes out to those Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin fanatics out there (there’s still a number of us, right?). Since releasing The Great Gatsby ...sorry, two-time Academy Award winner The Great Gatsby, Baz has been flexing his muscles elsewhere: he directed some beautiful shorts for the Prada/Schiaparelli exhibit at the Metropolitan museum, he directed the musical stage adaptation of Strictly Ballroom currently playing in Sydney, and threw quite the lavish party (does he throw any other kind?) to commemorate the opening of Melbourne’s newest mall, Emporium. We’ve also been hearing whispers of him possibly directing the long-gestating Stanley Kubrick project on Napoleon for HBO. While we wait, those of us in the tri-state area (or those visiting) may get our Baz-fix from the holiday windows at Barney’s this winter in what the retail company is calling »

Lukewarm Off Presses: Ben-Hur, Bourne-Again, Baz Junior?

19 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Catching up with some stories we've missed of late.

Ben-hur

Morgan Freeman was the first cast member announced for the remake of Best Picture winning Ben-Hur (1959) which was itself a remake of the silent epic of the same name in 1925.  Freeman will play the role of a wise old man who gives advice like a Pez Dispenser with Morgan Freeman's face on it. Can Morgan Freeman do anything else? Shame that a once very gifted actor now plays Exactly the same role in everything. Maybe he doesn't care to stretch? Jack Huston of Boardwalk Empire fame (who seems to be in the running for everything these days -even if he hasn't booked the high profile stuff until now) will play the lead Charlton Heston role. But good luck trying to best William Wyler's Oscar winning classic (one of 'em rather). I shudder to think how they'll handle Messala, »

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett get back to 'nature' on new duet

16 September 2014 11:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Collaborative crooners Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are at it again, duetting on the new single "Nature Boy." It arrives one week before the pair's latest album, "Cheek to Cheek," is released. Gaga kicks things off on the torchy piano-led ballad, before some strings and a flute come in to sweeten the deal. Then Tony arrives and the magic really happens. It's not exactly "Do What You Want With My Body," but Gaga and Bennett generate a different kind of heat. It features contributions from the late Paul Horn, the jazz flautist who worked with Bennett, Cole and other icons since the '50s. Listen to it here: Originally performed by Nat "King" Cole, the tune was also featured in 2000's "Moulin Rouge!," as pointed out in a tweet from Gaga.  She also revealed that "composer Eden Ahbezwas part of a sub-culture of nomadic hippies! We channelled our own Gypsy lives in this performance. »

Hollywood Heads to Broadway

16 September 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Every year, the glittering lights and unique experience of Broadway lures Hollywood actors to the East Coast; some are veterans of the stage and others are making their Broadway debut. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), James Franco (This is the End) and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) all made their Broadway debuts earlier this year, with O’Dowd receiving a Tony nomination for Of Mice and Men and Cranston winning a Tony for All The Way. Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), who hadn’t been on Broadway since his 2004 run in Assassins, scored his first Tony nomination and win for Hedwig and the Angry Inch this summer.

The Broadway lineup for the end of the year hosts a number of Hollywood actors making their Broadway debuts, and they are joined by an illustrious group of Broadway vets returning to the stage.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

Dane DeHaan Heads For Ziggy

14 September 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

When he’s not taking small roles in big blockbusters like The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Dane DeHaan spends most of his time in quirkier fare such as this new drama. He’s locked for the lead in musical Ziggy alongside Rooney Mara.Diesel Schwarze, a former protégé of Baz Luhrmann who worked for the Aussie director on Moulin Rouge and his Broadway version of La Boheme, will call the shots for Ziggy. It follows the rise and fall of a hunchback escape artist who arrives in New York and falls for the fiancée (Mara) of a powerful media mogul. Yeah, that old story…With Electric City providing production support, Schwarze – who honed his skills making ads before finally making the jump to films – will tear a leaf from his old mentor’s book and work with music producer Alex Da Kid to craft a contemporary soundtrack despite the movie’s period trappings. »

Dane DeHaan & Rooney Mara Get Musical in the 1920s with 'Ziggy'

12 September 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Over the past few years, both Rooney Mara and Dane DeHaan have become quite the impressive young actors, with the former making waves in The Social Network, Ain't Them Bodies Saints and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and the latter breaking through with Chronicle and expanding with Kill Your Darlings, Life After Beth and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Now the two will team up in a completely different genre for both of them as THR reports DeHaan and Mara will star in a 1920s set musical called Ziggy, which will be directed by Australian filmmaker Diesel Schwarze, a protégé of Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann. The film will follow the rise and fall of the title character (DeHaan), a hunchback escape artist who arrives in New York during the mass-culture boom of the late 1920s and falls in love with the fiancée (Mara) of a powerful media mogul.

Dane DeHaan, Rooney Mara Starring in Musical Movie ‘Ziggy’

12 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Dane DeHaan and Rooney Mara will star in movie musical “Ziggy” set in New York City during the Roaring Twenties.

Lynette Howell and Jamie Patricof’s Electric City Entertainment are partnered with Australian writer-director Diesel Schwarze to develop “Ziggy” as his debut feature film. British music producer and songwriter Alex Da Kid is also on board the project and the team is currently developing the original contemporary music for the film.

DeHaan will portray a hunchback escape artist who arrives in New York during the mass-culture boom of the late 1920s and falls in love with the fiance (Mara) of a powerful media mogul. The story will chart his rise to fame and subsequent fall amid a romantic world crashing down on its own idealism.

Musicals at the Oscars

10 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The Academy has a long and complex relationship with musicals, particularly with their ability to secure best picture nominations. The best picture nomination for Les Miserables (2012) at the 85th Academy Awards marked the first time since Chicago’s (2002) nomination and win that a musical was nominated in that category, and as of this moment, there aren’t many options that could break into the category this year.

Since premiering at Toronto, The Last 5 Years — the film adaption of the off-broadway musical written by Jason Robert Brown — has been receiving decent reviews but nothing that would propel it to best picture status. The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney said both Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan bring “confidence and depth of feeling” to their songs and “shift back and forth between rom-com breeziness and full-blown passion, be it the soaring highs or the heartsick lows” with ease, »

Tiff: The Last Five Years

8 September 2014 6:29 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel's adventures in Toronto. Day 3

The first thing you see in The Last Five Years is a white brownstone. It looks almost like a ghost in the middle of a New York City block. As the notes begin to play, the camera drifts upwards to peer into windows and search for its movie star within them. No, that's not her.  Not her either. Ah, there she is. Anna Kendrick sings the entirety of "Still Hurting", moping around a dark apartment, crying. The camera moves around her (in strange patterns) and her voice is just beautiful. And then I realize I've forgotten to breathe and am gripping my armrest.

I have a strange relationship to modern movie musicals. We're about 14 years into the movie musical's modern resurgence after two decades of a major drought but it's still hit and miss as to quality and success (not necessarily related). I always desperately »

Recap: 'Outlander' - Collecting 'Rent' looks a lot like extortion

6 September 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last week left Claire in quite the predicament. Having earned Dougal’s tentative trust, he was now willing to put her into more danger. But that also meant she’d finally get out of Castle Leoch and closer to the standing stones that might take her home. I assume she figures there are Ikea-like instructions carved somewhere to get the stones to work at will And transport her the correct direction in time? So it was with that level of optimism, Claire loaded up with Clan MacKenzie to go collect the “Rent.”  ********* Over a gorgeous vista of a quiet lake between two distant peaks, our heroine recites a passage from “Absence, Hear Thou My Protestations” because reciting verse from a not-yet-born poet would render the time/space continuum asunder. For a moment I wonder why Claire has taken to speaking aloud, but oh it’s to give us an excuse to meet a new character. »

The Oscars are coming! The Oscars are coming!

4 September 2014 4:16 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I'll try to be brief. With the triple threat of Venice, Telluride and Toronto, we've entered that foggy realm known to the industry as "awards season." And with it we're getting, like clockwork, self-satisfied dismissals of this time of year, pieces that surmise that the Oscar frame is "ruining movies," and that coverage of the prestige months (i.e., places like In Contention) are a root of the problem. I suppose it's time for a reminder that such a position is nonsense. First and foremost, is your passion for movies really so easily ruined? A segment of press devoted to covering the, typically, quality work presented by studios this time of year is such a blight on the industry? I won't argue that it's too noisy out there; it absolutely is. And as someone who's covered this beat for 14 years now, I've certainly taken note of the increasing volume. But »
