Bfca announces special honors for Kevin Costner, Ron Howard and Jessica Chastain

12 December 2014 5:18 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Broadcast Film Critics Association announces nominees Monday. It will be interesting to see which way they (well, we; I'm a member) go. Unlike the other critics groups that have announced so far, the Bfca — which, it should be pointed out, isn't completely made of critics, a line increasingly blurred — is a vast organization with something like 300 members. So within that, you can get a bead on consensus. Anyway, that's Monday. For now, the organization has announced a number of special awards for the Jan. 15 ceremony. The Lifetime Achievement Honor will go to Kevin Costner, seen on screens this year in Mike Binder's "Black or White." A fine choice, particularly with the resurgence in films like "3 Days to Kill" and "Draft Day" as of late. Fingers crossed he saddles up to another western one of these days, as "Dances with Wolves" and particularly "Open Range" remain stellar samples from the genre. »

Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick Honor Stephen Sondheim at ‘Into the Woods’ Premiere

9 December 2014 7:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was a night of celebration for the cast of the Disney-produced musical “Into The Woods,” at the world premiere at the Ziegfield on Monday.

Director Rob Marshall’s adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Stephen Sondheim musical starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and Johnny Depp received praise from press and industry execs just hours after the film was honored by the American Film Institute as one of the top 11 movies of the year.

According to the cast, bringing the hit 1987 Broadway musical to the big screen has been rewarding, but a challenge. For Streep, donning prosthetics and yellow talons to play The Witch was no easy task.

“When I put the talons on — that was it for the day,” she told Variety. “I couldn’t run my fingers through my hair, I couldn’t get a moat out of my eye, I couldn’t do anything. I had »

Before 'Wild,' Five Essential Reese Witherspoon Performances

2 December 2014 2:20 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Consider that country legend June Carter Cash’s own life story could have made an equally if even more compelling big-screen saga than that of husband Johnny Cash – one that was eventually told in a not-bad TV movie starring singer Jewel. But for every “Coal Miner’s Daughter” that made it to the big screen, Hollywood has optioned countless true-life accounts of great men that went on to compete in the Academy Award race – including “Walk the Line.” At least Witherspoon’s co-lead status opposite Joaquin Phoenix as the iconic Man in Black was acknowledged, unlike supporting winners such as Jennifer Connelly in “A Beautiful Mind” and Marcia Gay Harden in “Pollock,” who clearly were the main female stars of their films. Then again, Witherspoon's gold trophy appears to have done more harm than good as far as post-Oscar opportunities go. Much like previous best-actress winners Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman and Hilary Swank, »

'Unbroken': Last Oscars mystery will soon be solved

27 November 2014 11:27 PM, PST | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

On Sunday and Monday, media pundits will see the last of the major Oscar contenders – "Unbroken" – and we will finally have a good sense of the race. Currently, the 26 Oscarologists at Gold Derby are thus split on what will win Best Picture: 14 for "Boyhood," 7 for "Unbroken," 3 for "Selma" and 2 for "Birdman." -Break- "Unbroken" could soon jump ahead based upon its pedigree, which makes it look like the ultimate made-for-Oscars movie. Like "12 Years a Slave" and "A Beautiful Mind," it tells the real-life story of someone who triumphs over extreme adversity – in this case Louie Zamperini, a former Olympic track star who survives a plane crash, gets lost at sea for 47 days and then endures two and a half years locked up in Japanese Pow camps during World War II. The fact that it's directed by past Oscar champ Angelina Jolie ("Girl, In..."' »

See Asa Butterfield, Sally Hawkins in first trailer for British Indie Awards-nominated 'X+Y'

27 November 2014 8:39 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Documentarian Morgan Matthews’ feature debut "X+Y" played quietly at the 2014 Toronto Film Festival. The voters involved with this year’s British Independent Film Awards are clearly noticing something fest-goers overlooked. Based on Matthews’ own BBC documentary "Beautiful Young Minds," which followed the selection process and training of Britain's 2006 International Mathematical Olympiad team, "X+Y" stars "Hugo" and "Ender’s Game" actor Asa Butterfield as a young math whiz coping with his emotionally and logistically complex mind. The first trailer for the film plays like a mix between "A Beautiful Mind" and Mark Haddon’s novel "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time," meaning the Bifa’s may not be the only ones prone to falling for it. Adding a bit of gravitas to the uplifting young adult story are Eddie Marsan, Rafe Spall, and the Academy Award-nominated Sally Hawkins, one of the most genuine actresses gracing screens »

The Relationship Between Highest-Grossing Films and Oscar Nominations

26 November 2014 10:07 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

It’s safe to assume that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is going to end the year as the highest-grossing film at the domestic box office with more than $331 million earned as of Nov. 23, but its Oscar prospects lie in below-the-line categories, such as visual effects and sound.

More often than not, the highest-grossing films tend to be neglected in the best picture category. Though The Dark Knight (2008), which was widely-acclaimed and was the highest-grossing film of the year, received eight nominations and won two (sound editing and supporting actor), it was snubbed by the Academy in the best picture category. The following year, the number of best picture nominees increased from five to 10 (and can now fall between those numbers). Since this increase though, the only highest-grossing films to land best picture nominations are 2009’s Avatar and 2010’s Toy Story 3. Neither of the films won. »

Late December Releases Don’t Hinder Best Picture Contenders

4 November 2014 9:58 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

As we head into the final two months of the year, there are still a number of Oscar contenders that won’t be released — or even be seen — until December.

Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken and Rob Marshall’s Into the Woods will premiere on Christmas Day. Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper will have a limited release on Christmas before expanding to more theaters Jan 16.

Exodus: Gods and Kings, which is set for a Dec. 12 release, had a 37-minute press screening in September before the film was completed.

It was recently announced that a 30-minute first-look screening of Selma, the Martin Luther King Jr. biopic that centers on the Civil Rights marches from Selma to Montgomery, will take place at AFI Fest before its limited release on Dec. 25. But if Selma isn’t yet ready for it’s December release, it »

How Overdue Actors Can Win for the ‘Wrong’ Performance

31 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The frontrunners in this year’s Oscar actor races look to be made up of a lot of first-time nominees. Patricia Arquette is sitting pretty at the top of most pundits’ lists for supporting actress for “Boyhood” and J.K. Simmons is most people’s pick for supporting actor for “Whiplash.” The competitive best actor race is shaping up to be made up of almost entirely first-time nominees.

It’s only the best actress race where the veterans are thriving, from frontrunner Julianne Moore for “Still Alice” (a four-time nominee) to the likes of Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon, Hilary Swank and Marion Cotillard and frequent nominees Amy Adams and Jessica Chastain. Rosamund Pike and Felicity Jones are the only newcomers circling the field.

Moore is currently considered the one to beat, and not just because her performance as a professor diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in “Still Alice” is stunning work—she »

First Trailer & Poster for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea Released

16 October 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

In the Heart of the Sea (based on a book of the same name) tells the true story of a shipping voyage that would go on to inspire the classical tale of Moby Dick, and today brings the first trailer and poster for Ron Howard's upcoming adaptation.  Come inside to check them out!

Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth are back together, this time in a period piece out on the high seas.  I wasn't sure what to think about this story when I first hear about it, but having seen this trailer, I'm definitely excited to know more.  While the human drama elements will most surely be at the forefront, it's pretty obvious that at it's core, In the Heart of the Sea is a disaster flick.  I love these kinds of films and Ron Howard does a great job with them (look at Apollo 13), by combining engaging »

Reese Witherspoon, Corey Stoll and 'The Good Lie' Cast Talk Making 2014's Most Worthwhile Film

3 October 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The Good Lie is titled after the lies in Huckleberry Finn, the type of lie that is a lie for the greater good, even if lying is wrong. The Good Lie, the movie,  has a small opening this weekend in under 500 theaters and will hopefully begin to slowly expand to more theaters with it’s poster of smiling Reese Witherspoon’s head miraculously floating over an African desert. The poster for The Good Lie and the trailer for The Good Lie are, themselves, actual good lies because what looks like The Blind Side but with Reese Witherspoon is not, instead it’s one of those movies that will be shown to our children in school.

You remember the type of movie I’m talking about: you have a substitute or your teacher got a little ahead in the lesson plan or you have a half-holiday day so the class gets »
