Film Review: 'Closed Curtain'

7 September 2015 1:24 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★★ Closed Curtain (2013), Jafar Panahi's symbolically charged follow-up to his critically acclaimed This Is Not a Film (2012), is about state repression, censorship, depression and the intersection between art and reality. Echoes of the former Soviet Union's 'Iron Curtain' are reflected in the title. The superb opening shot is filmed through the security grill of a window; an image reinforced by the bars of an iron fence directly in front of it. A car draws up. Two men approach the house. All that can be heard is the faint sound of birdsong. The first man, carrying a black bag, enters the house and we hear him set down his bag and keys. He accepts a suitcase and box of water from the second who then drives off.

As the camera's perspective moves to the interior, the man (co-director Kamboziya Partovi) closes the curtains of the main living space. He uses black fabric, »

Leonardo DiCaprio Will Be The Devil In The White City For Martin Scorsese

11 August 2015 2:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

It seems portraying despicable charmer Jordan Belfort in 2013’s The Wolf of Wall Street has given Leonardo Di Caprio a taste for bad, because he’ll be playing an outright psychopath in his next outing with director Martin Scorsese. The two are reuniting for an adaptation of Erik Larson’s nonfiction book The Devil in the White City for Paramount.

The book follows events at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago, where amid the lights and fanfare, a serial killer was at work. The murderer in question, Dr. Hh Holmes will be played by Di Caprio, with screenwriting duties falling to pedigreed scribe Billy Ray (The Hunger Games & Shattered Glass). Apparently there was a ton of other interest from competing studios like Universal and Fox for the books’ rights, but Paramount snapped them up as soon as Scorsese and Di Caprio showed interest.

Martin Scorsese And Leonardo DiCaprio Reteam For 'The Devil In The White City'

10 August 2015 6:34 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A book that Hollywood has long tried to wrangle is once again being given a fresh jolt of life, with a killer creative team. Erik Larson's terrific book "The Devil In The White City: Murder, Magic And Madness At The Fair That Changed America" has been kicking around for years, but has failed to get made despite high profile folks like David Fincher and Kathryn Bigelow taking a look at various points. But this combo is one that's hard to beat. Deadline reports that Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio will continue their bromance with the project, with Billy Ray ("Shattered Glass," "Captain Phillips") tasked with writing the script. The true story is a fascinating one, with the book recounting the depraved acts of a deadly serial killer as it plays out against the backdrop of the 1893 Chicago's World Fair, and how the event quickly transformed the mid-sized city into a bustling, »

DiCaprio, Scorsese Team On "White City"

10 August 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Leonardo DiCaprio will re-team with regular collaborator Martin Scorsese for the long-in-development film adaptation of Erik Larson's non-fiction book "The Devil in The White City" at Paramount Pictures.

The project has been in the works for over a decade with Paramount being the latest to take a shot, the third time in fact they've done so with Cruise/Wagner setting up the book there in 2003. Rights lapsed, Paramount picked them up again in 2007. Rights lapsed again and so DiCaprio's Appian Way acquired them 2010. They then went to Warners in 2011. They lapsed, and now Paramount has them again.

Set against the backdrop of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, it tells the intertwining stories of fair architect Daniel H. Burnham and serial killer H.H. Holmes, a charming sociopath who used a hotel he built near the fairgrounds to lure victims.

Complete with gas chamber and crematorium, Holmes would murder his victims »

Billy Ray Wins Seat on Academy Board of Governors

24 July 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Oscar-nominated for 2013's “Captain Phillips," Billy Ray has won the runoff election for the open Writers Branch seat on the 2015–16 Board of Governors. He also wrote "The Hunger Games" (2012) and "Shattered Glass" (2003). The first-time governor will join fellow writers Phil Robinson and Robin Swicord on the Board.  Ray beat out Larry Karaszewski, who had tied for the seat in the Board election earlier this month, only the second time in Academy history to show a tie; the last one was in 2009 in the Directors Branch. Three members represent each of 17 branches on the board, and serve three-year terms.  Read More: Academy Picks New Board of Governors A full listing of the Academy’s 2015–16 Board of Governors is here. »

True Story review – a disappointing affair

19 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rupert Goold’s retelling of the real-life tale of journalist Michael Finkel and the murderer he befriended has neither depth nor drama

Solid turns from Jonah Hill and James Franco, along with some disappointingly sidelined support from Felicity Jones, can’t save this muddled, real-life journo escapade from going the forgettable way of Kill the Messenger or Shattered Glass. Dropped from the New York Times for playing fast and loose with his facts, reporter Michael Finkel (Hill) becomes the confidante of Christian Longo (Franco) who is awaiting trial for the murder of his wife and children. As a fugitive, Longo had used Finkel’s name as an alias, but who is manipulating whom in their pre-trial chats? Unlike the infamous Joe McGinniss/Jeffrey MacDonald face-off savagely documented in Janet Malcolm’s book The Journalist and the Murderer (the 1990 urtext to which all such stories aspire), the symbiotic relationship between Finkel and Longo is neither complex, »

First Trailer For Secret In Their Eyes

30 June 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Drawing the basics of your script from a novel that has already been adapted overseas to Oscar-winning effect can be a daunting challenge. But it’s one that Shattered Glass writer/director Billy Ray has taken on with Secret In Their Eyes, bringing Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts along with him. The first trailer has now arrived.Taken from Eduardo Sacheri’s novel La Pregunta De Sus Ojos, this new film is attempting to follow Juan José Campanella’s 2009 Argentinian effort The Secret In Their Eyes, which went home with the Best Foreign Language Film award at the 2010 Oscars. Along with knocking off that initial “The”, Ray tweaked the plot to add in more of a female presence in the lead when Roberts expressed her interest.The story follows similar lines, with Roberts and Ejiofor as FBI colleagues called to investigate a body found brutally murdered and left in a dumpster. »

First Trailer: "Secret in Their Eyes"

30 June 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the most well-regarded international films of the past decade was Juan Jose Campanella's 2009 Argentinean film "The Secret In Their Eyes".

The thriller follows two colleagues called to investigate a body found brutally murdered and left in a dumpster - a body which turned out to be the teen daughter of one of them. Though they have a prime suspect, the case collapses and over the next thirteen years and so begins an obsessional drive to find the truth and resolve the case.

The new film, which comes from "Shattered Glass" writer/director Billy Ray, stars Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Nicole Kidman along with a slightly shortened title and what is said to be a stronger female presence than the original. Today comes the first trailer for the film which you can see below:

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Julia Roberts in first trailer for Secret in Their Eyes remake

30 June 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A star-studded remake of the Oscar-winning Argentinian thriller, also starring Nicole Kidman, has Roberts out for revenge against the man who killed her daughter

Given the near universal acclaim that met Juan José Campanella’s 2009 thriller The Secret in Their Eyes, initial reaction to news of a remake was less than enthused.

But with a stellar cast and Billy Ray, the director of Shattered Glass and Breach, on board, it might not be the disaster that many expected. The first trailer for the remake has landed and has Chiwetel Ejiofor and Julia Roberts as FBI investigators working with their Da supervisor, played by Nicole Kidman.

‘Secret in Their Eyes’, American remake of Oscar winner, gets a trailer

30 June 2015 7:39 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The original The Secret in Their Eyes Juan Jose Campanella won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language film, swept the Argentinian equivalent of the Oscars, and now sits comfortably in the IMDb Top 250. Though it didn’t make our list of Top 10 Foot Chases, it has one of the best long takes around and was an incredible mix of romance, suspense, and revenge.

Six years later an American remake has arrived from Billy Ray (Breach, Shattered Glass) starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and the first trailer looks promising. I would’ve never guessed Julia would ever take the role of the hardened detective out for revenge, but here she is. Here’s the full synopsis:

Secret In Their Eyes Trailer: Roberts, Ejiofor, and Kidman Track a Killer

30 June 2015 6:34 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Stx Entertainment has released a new trailer for the upcoming thriller Secret in Their Eyes. Based on the 2009 Argentine film of the same name, the movie stars Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor as FBI agents Jess and Ray, respectively, whose lives are turned upside down when Jess’ daughter is found murdered, for seemingly no reason. Years later, their inability to bring the killer to justice still haunts Ray—until he finds a new lead that may prove integral to catching the murderer and giving his colleague (and himself) some peace. The dramatic thriller is the third directorial effort from Billy Ray, who previously wrote and helmed Shattered Glass and Breach but is best known for penning the screenplays for films like The Hunger Games and Captain Phillips. I’ve not seen the original Secret in Their Eyes so I can only speak to Ray’s iteration, but the film looks »

Watch: First Trailer For ‘Secret In Their Eyes’ With Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman & Julia Roberts

30 June 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If there is one movie that didn't need a remake, it's Juan José Campanella's Oscar winning "Secret In Their Eyes." And yet, one can't deny that the combo of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts, along with "Shattered Glass" writer/director Billy Ray is a compelling one. But the question still lingers of why this story needed to be retold, and what could be improved. “I felt that as great as that movie is, and I literally mean great, I felt that it needed to be made into a slightly more muscular version of itself, and that just meant it needed a little bit more story and a couple of things I thought were sort of uniquely American touches to justify retelling the story,” Ray told EW. “I’m pretty confident we found all that.” Read More: New First Look Photos: 'Secret In Their Eyes' With Chiwetel Ejiofor, »

New First Look Photos: ‘Secret In Their Eyes’ With Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman & Julia Roberts

In 2009, director Juan J. Campanella and his Argentine crime thriller film, "El Secreto De Sus Ojos" ("The Secret In Their Eyes") scored international acclaim when the critically regarded film went on to win the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Of course, naturally, when a movie’s that good, but not in English, Hollywood assume, and perhaps not incorrectly, that only so many North American audiences will actually watch it. Thus, it’s time for an English-Language remake.

Adrien Brody & Hayden Christensen Plan An ‘American Heist’ In New Trailer

5 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ever since he portrayed Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels actor Hayden Christensen has had a hard time of it. Fans took their frustrations with the modern trilogy out on him, blaming his wooden acting for making the films so bad and forgetting that an actor is limited by their script and director. He did though star in Shattered Glass which earned him some acting praise and his turn in Jumper was a lot of fun.

The last we heard of Christensen he was starring in Outcast with Nicolas Cage which meant one of two things; it was either going to be really good, or really bad. Our money is on it being really bad but we’re hopeful that Christensen’s next release American Heist might be a little better. The film sees Hayden star alongside Academy Award winner Adrien Brody in American Hesit. The synopsis of the »

Netflix Is Making a Movie With Ricky Gervais

6 April 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Netflix continues to forge on into the world of film: The network has acquired Special Correspondents, written and directed by Ricky Gervais and starring Eric Bana, for 2016. In a very Gervais-ian role, Bana plays an arrogant radio journalist who fakes front-line war reports from the comfort of his Manhattan apartment. Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos called it "classic Ricky Gervais" for its biting, satirical bent. Gervais, meanwhile, kissed the ring of Sarandos, calling him the "new Godfather of entertainment." We're thinking it'll be like Shattered Glass, only older, funnier, and less maniacal. »

Melanie Lynskey on Togetherness, realism and 'radical' nudity

9 March 2015 9:11 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Heavenly Creatures to HBO’s Togetherness, the New Zealand actor reflects on what 20 years – and Charlie Sheen – have taught her about showbusiness

There are few more disturbing scenes than the violent conclusion to Heavenly Creatures. Peter Jackson’s film introduced not only future Oscar-winner Kate Winslet to the world in 1994, but also the talents and charm of Melanie Lynskey. The New Zealander has since become a stalwart supporting actor in the likes of Up In the Air, Shattered Glass and The Informant.

Her gig as Rose in the incomprehensibly popular sitcom Two and a Half Men now wrapped, she is currently impressing in Togetherness, HBO’s new show from the Duplass brothers which aired its first season finale on Sunday. With roles in indie flicks Happy Christmas, We’ll Never Have Paris and Goodbye To All That reaching Antipodean screens in 2015, Lynskey spoke to Guardian Australia about her penchant for realism, »

Listen, we're not thrilled that the excellent, Oscar-winning "The Secret In Their Eyes" is getting a remake either, but you couldn't ask for a better team to be bringing it together. "Shattered Glass" writer/director Billy Ray is behind the camera, and he has lined up Nicole Kidman, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Julia Roberts in the lead roles, with guys like Michael Kelly ("House Of Cards") and Dean Norris ("Breaking Bad") in support. Filming is underway, but the first look at the movie has arrived in advance of its October 23rd release.

Nicolas Cage praises Hayden Christensen's "edgy, dangerous" Star Wars work

3 February 2015 11:27 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hayden Christensen's portrayal of Anakin Skywalker has few friends - but Nicolas Cage is one of them...

Hayden Christensen proved in the film Shattered Glass that he was a far better actor than you'd necessarily think by the end of the much-maligned Star Wars prequels. Heavily criticised for his portrayal of Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith, to be fair to Christensen, not too many people came out of those movies with their acting reputations enhanced.

But he did have one notable fan of his work on Star Wars. And that'd be Nicolas Cage.

Cage has been promoting his new film with Christensen, which goes by the name of Outcast. And chatting to IGN, he revealed he's quite the fan of his co-star's Star Wars work.

"George Lucas is a dear friend of my family", Cage told the site. »
