'Unbroken': Last Oscars mystery will soon be solved

21 hours ago | 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 »

The Water Diviner Trailer and Poster: Russell Crowe Directs and Stars in Australian World War I Drama

1 October 2014 9:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first The Water Diviner trailer and poster have been released for Russell Crowe’s feature directorial debut.  The story centers on an Australian man (Crowe) who travels to Turkey in an attempt to discover the fate of his three sons, who were fighting in World War I.  While I was afraid the film might feel a bit like a vanity project, this trailer is actually pretty good.  There are surprisingly few films that revolve around the horrors of The Great War, and this Australia-focused story provides an interesting point of view for what was truly a World war.  Crowe appears to be pretty confident behind the camera, and he’s filled his cast out with plenty of Australian actors.  Color me intrigued. Hit the jump to check out the Water Diviner trailer and poster.  The film also stars Olga KurylenkoJai Courtney, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, »

1 October 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Russell Crowe is making a very ambitious directorial debut with The Water Diviner. The scale and time period would seem like a lot for a first time director, that is until you think about all the talented directors Crowe has worked with and learned from.

Official Synopsis:

Starring Russell Crowe (Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind) and Olga Kurylenko (Oblivion, Quantum Of Solace), The Water Diviner is an epic adventure set four years after the devastating battle of Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I.

New 'Theory of Everything' trailer plays up Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking transformation

1 October 2014 8:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A whiff of “Man on Wire" director James Marsh's "The Theory of Everything" should convince you the Stephen Hawking biopic is a Best Picture contender (and we would agree with you). Shades of "A Beautiful Mind," Eddie Redmayne's all-in performance as the paralysed Professor Hawking, a breakout role for critical darling Felicity Jones, and praise from the festival circuit all add up to Oscar. Some things aren't physics. "The Theory of Everything" picks up in 1964, Hawking popping his head up from a Cambridge University doctoral program just long enough to fall head over heels in love with his sister's friend, Jane Wilde (Jones). During this propulsive time, with romance and Big Bang theories swirling about, doctors diagnosed the budding astrophysicist with motor neuron disease. All reports indicated he'd be dead in two years. "The Theory of Everything" tracks the many fruitful, turbulent, inspiring decades he went on to live. »

Russell Crowe's Directorial Debut 'The Water Diviner' Aussie Trailer

30 September 2014 3:04 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After some footage surfaced in our first look at Russell Crowe's directorial debut The Water Diviner earlier this year, the first trailer for the film has finally arrived from Down Under. The film follows Crowe as an Australian man who travels to Turkey four years after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. After working with directors like Ridley Scott, Ron Howard and Darren Aronofsky most recently, it looks like Crowe might have learned a lot, as this looks like a powerful drama that could make a late entry into awards season this winter. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko and Jai Courtney. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner from Yahoo Australia: The Water Diviner is directed by Russell Crowe (star of Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, The Insider), making his directorial debut from a screenplay by Australian television »

Dwayne Johnson Will Star as a Secret Agent in a Robert Ludlum Story That’s Not About Bourne

30 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Because the sky is blue and grass is green and we all have to pay taxes and one day die, Dwayne Johnson is going to fulfill his destiny as an actor and machine-like human by playing a secret agent (a real one, not a silly one as he did in Get Smart). The world’s most lovable former wrestler turned Scorpion King turned adrenaline fueled action star confirmed over Twitter that he’ll be starring in an adaptation of The Janson Directive, a project that’s been in gestation over at Universal for some time. You’ve got competition, Jason Bourne — there’s a new Robert Ludlum-penned mystery man in town. With that tweet, Johnson also confirmed that The Janson Directive is being propelled forward with a script by Akiva Goldsman. It’s promising news when you hear that the Oscar-winning writer of A Beautiful Mind is penning the script; it’s another when you remember »
