Oscar Watch: First-Class Films From Aniston, Connelly, Costner, Gere Still Seek Distributors As Clock Running Out

21 September 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The 2014 Oscar clock is running out for powerful, but still unsold, festival showpieces starring Jennifers Aniston and Connelly, as well as Kevin Costner and Richard Gere.

Several unspoken-for films came into this year’s Toronto International Film Festival determined not only to find a distributor, but to set a 2014 release date. In the case of Still Alice, the touching drama of a woman’s descent into early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, that plan worked spectacularly well. It had a stirring world-premiere screening on Sept. 8 in a less-visible afternoon slot at Tiff and quickly sparked Oscar buzz for star Julianne Moore, a four-time nominee who has never won.

Sony Pictures Classics presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard quickly recognized the kind of role that has Oscar written all over it, and two days later the picture sold to Spc (which, despite having its largest slate of Oscar hopefuls ever, still had an »

Tiff 2014: Five things we learned at The Good Lie's press conference

12 September 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

With two big films at the Toronto International Film Festival, it would be easy for that to get to your head, butReese Witherspoon was conscious that her film, The Good Lie, was bigger than herself: "This has nothing to do with you, Reese."

 

At the press conference for the film, French-Canadian director Philippe Falardeau (Monsieur Lazhar) agreed, and Witherspoon recalled a conversation where the director said, "I really like you and respect you, Reese, but this movie has nothing to do with that."

It's about the Lost Boys and Girls of South Sudan.

In The Good Lie, Witherspoon plays an American who is assigned to help four young Sudanese refugees (Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Kuoth Wiel, and Emmanuel Jal) who are relocating to the United States. The film also stars Corey Stoll (Midnight In Paris, "House of Cards"), and is produced by Ron Howard and Brian Glazer -- both of »

Nightwing to Lead 'Teen Titans' Live Action TV Series for TNT

11 September 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

TNT is nearing a pilot deal for a new TV series based on the popular DC Comics title Teen Titans, which will simply be called Titans. The character Nightwing will lead the group, with the pilot being co-written by Akiva Goldsman, best known for his I Am Legend and A Beautiful Mind screenplays.

Akiva Goldsman is co-penning the pilot script with Marc Haimes, an executive turned writer. Titans centers on former Batman side-kick Dick Grayson (aka Robin) who emerges from the shadows of The Dark Knight as Nightwing to lead his own fearless band of superheroes, which may include Starfire and Raven. While no other characters are mentioned by name in the source story, also part of the group in the DC Comics and animated series are Cyborg (rumored to be making an appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Beast Boy and Terra.

Akiva Goldsman’s Heading Up A (Teen) ‘Titans’/'Nightwing' DC Comics Show For TNT

11 September 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Akiva Goldsman’s been trying to make a “Titans,” or “Teen Titans,” as they were originally called, movie for forever. In 2007, it was even announced that Goldsman, Academy-Award winning writer of “A Beautiful Mind” and director of 2014’s “Winter's Tale,” would be producing a live-action “Titans” movie. That obviously never happened, but Goldsman hasn't given up on the project, and now TNT is about to greenlight a pilot that could turn into a show. “The Teen Titans” began in 1964. They were essentially a super-team of sidekicks in a group that was like the Justice League Junior. The group were comprised of Robin, Kid Flash, Aqualad, Wonder Girl and Speedy, respective sidekicks to heroes Batman, Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Arrow. That novelty changed and gained respectability in the 1980s with the Marv Wolfman/George Perez comics team that cast them as misfit teens/20-somethings living bitterly in the shadows of their wards. »

Toronto Film Review: ‘X+Y’

10 September 2014 2:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

, “X+Y” zeroes in on a young math whiz who only gradually comprehends the basics of establishing relationships with other people. Deconstructionist critics and mainstream moviegoers alike may find it difficult not to reference “Rain Man,” “A Beautiful Mind” and “David and Lisa” while describing the movie to potential ticketbuyers. But even though such comparisons are hardly inapt, director Morgan Matthews’ debut fiction feature — inspired by his acclaimed 2007 documentary “Beautiful Young Minds” — proves potent on its own terms as a satisfying, compelling drama with definite crossover potential on screens of all sizes.

Much like its nonfiction predecessor, “X+Y” focuses on student competitors in the Intl. Mathematics Olympiad (Imo). In concert with scripter James Graham, Matthews has spun off a scenario about a character not unlike one of the more memorable subjects in “Beautiful Young Minds,” a neurodevelopmentally challenged math prodigy named Daniel Lightwing.

In the world according to “X+Y, »

Oscars News: Is Benedict Cumberbatch a 'nearly perfect' Oscar bet for 'The Imitation Game'?

9 September 2014 12:52 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Michael Cieply describes Benedict Cumberbatch as "a nearly perfect Oscar bet" for "The Imitation Game." With veteran campaigner Harvey Weinstein behind the project, he refers to the film as "The King's Speech" meets "A Beautiful Mind" on "Brokeback Mountain." Cumberbatch plays British mathematician Alan Turing and his successful quest to break the Nazi military code during World War II. However, he was a closeted gay man who was horribly treated after the war.  Cumberbatch just won an Emmy Award in August for "Sherlock: His Last Vow" and now seeks his first Oscar nod. New York Times -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube Nicole Sperling talks of the many surprises at the Toronto Film Festival in the past few days.

Tiff 2014: Mathematical minds multiply at Toronto International Film Festival

8 September 2014 9:54 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

In the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, two college girls rush into a '60s-era Cambridge party before the sight of the attendees stops them in their tracks.

"Oh, dear. Scientists."

So could the reaction be confronting this year's Toronto International Film Festival, where two of the most lauded and talked-about films are portraits of elite mathematical minds, courtesy of Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne. In The Theory of Everything, Redmayne plays theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking; in The Imitation Game, Cumberbatch plays British mathematician and World War II code breaker Alan Turing.

After glowing receptions in Toronto, both films are expected to be major players on Hollywood's awards circuit this fall following their theatrical openings. (Theory is due out Nov. 7. Imitation Game follows two weeks later.) Redmayne and Cumberbatch are already calculated by pundits to be favorites for a best-actor Oscar nomination.

'Imitation Game' writer has wanted to tell Alan Turing's story since he was 14

7 September 2014 4:49 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles — The last four years have been a whirlwind for screenwriter Graham Moore. After seizing the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tell the story of a childhood hero, his script based on Alan Turing's life — "The Imitation Game" — lit up the industry, landing at the top of The Black List (an annual compendium of hot unpublished screenplays). He was given the rare opportunity as a writer to see production all the way through as an Executive Producer, moving with the project in and out of the studio system, and in the mountains of Colorado last week, he witnessed the film catch fire after finally premiering at the Telluride Film Festival. Now the 32-year-old finds himself working alongside directors like Michael Mann and Marc Forster, living the dream after having the best possible alignment of stars on his first major industry experience.

Toronto 2014 preview: 17 must-see films

4 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Last year, 12 Years a Slave clinched the Academy Award for Best Picture at the Toronto Film Festival. Well, that’s not actually true. In fact, you could argue that the Best Picture winner almost lost the statue at the festival. Steve McQueen’s harrowing instant classic was so instantly and universally anointed in Toronto that seeds were planted for an inevitable backlash to flower in the six months before the Oscar winner was finally announced. Ultimately, 12 Years’ biggest Oscar competition came from another Toronto film, Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity. Though both films premiered at Telluride and Venice, respectively, the awards »

Telluride: From ‘Birdman’ to ‘Mommy,’ Festival Soars Above the Fray

2 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: How was your Telluride, Scott? Mine was terrific — though I should note that I don’t really have a frame of reference, being a first-timer at this annual mountainside mecca for movie lovers. Still, I’m happy to report that just about everything I’ve heard is true: the unbeatable backdrop, the near-unbeatable films, above all that wondrous sense that the usual barriers separating filmmakers, journalists and audiences have magically melted away for one long weekend, uniting us all in one collective cinephile bliss-out. This is a festival where you’re as likely to pass Alexander Payne, Mike Leigh or the Dardenne brothers in the street as you are to make it into your next screening, and where a Megan Ellison sighting can send a momentary hush through a screening queue.

Telluride: Weinstein Company Jumps Back Into Oscar Game With Strong ‘Imitation Game’ Screening

30 August 2014 1:18 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

On a day chock full of World Premieres here in Telluride, The Weinstein Company which has used this festival for North American launches of The King’s Speech and The Artist, and saw both go on to win Best Picture Oscars, just might be on to another major Best Picture contender after its first public screening of the Alan Turing biopic, The Imitation Game. Of course it is easy this time of year to go into just about every film that hits the Fall Festival circuit as a potential awards player after a large drought of Oscar- quality films for the first eight months of the year, but this one just has Academy Award nominations written all over it.  Not just in the Best Picture race where a slot seems likely, but also directing for Norwegian helmer Morten Tyldum (Headhunters), debuting screenwriter Graham Moore, and certainly the stunning lead actor »

‘Imitation Game’ Demands Oscar’s Attention (Analysis)

29 August 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Imitation Game” is clearly an awards contender: Complex, impeccably executed and unique. The film’s offbeat approach to an oddball character will be its greatest strength — and its challenge.

A historical drama about WWII cryptographer Alan Turing, “The Imitation Game” is a kudos candidate in multiple categories, including the superb performances of Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley (lead or supporting? She could go either way). Artisan contributions seem like shoo-in contenders. And the film, direction and screenplay are clearly in the Fyc category.

The big challenge to both mainstream audiences and awards voters: selling it. Based on Andrew Hodges’ biography on Turing, the British mathematician who cracked the Nazi’s code, “Imitation Game” demands that the audience work to keep up. When awards voters have a stack of DVDs and invitations to screenings, they’ll need a lot of buzz to lure them to a film about a WWII-era »
