Wolf (All-Region)

Aooowww — Woo! Jack Nicholson summons his inner dog — and dons the makeup and scary contact lenses — to go the Larry Talbot route. Unfortunately, his moon-howling nighttime life isn’t as interesting as the dog-eat-dog infighting in the publishing house where he works – where feral instincts and sharp lupine senses are a major aid to ‘getting a leg up’ on the competition. I know, cheap metaphors are the ruin of promising writers.

‘Mission: Impossible’ Producer Paula Wagner to Be Honored at Camerimage

Poland’s Camerimage cinematography fest, which kicked off Saturday, will honor Paula Wagner with its prize for “producer with unique visual sensitivity,” in recognition for her work on such films as “Mission: Impossible” and other partnerships with co-producer Tom Cruise.

With four decades of work, starting with projects such as Alejandro Amenábar’s chiller “The Others” and Billy Ray’s journalist drama “Shattered Glass,” the former actress built her career via agency work, repping talents such as Sean Penn, Val Kilmer, Demi Moore and Liam Neeson while at the Creative Artists Agency.

In 1993, she launched Cruise/Wagner Productions, which took on the film adaptation of the hit ‘70s TV suspense series “Mission: Impossible,” launching the franchise that continues to roll along. Cruise and Wagner also worked on Cameron Crowe’s mystery romance “Vanilla Sky,” based on Amenábar’s “Abre los ojos.”

Wagner then produced Edward Zwick’s Cruise-starrer “The Last Samurai,” exec produced

Simon Brew Nov 20, 2017

Billy Ray has been hired to brush up the script for Terminator 6....

Billy Ray, who penned and directed Shattered Glass and Breach (two terrific films), is doing a screenplay polish for the new Terminator movie. His job is to take the script that came out of the writers’ room that came up with it, and turning it into the final shooting version.

Watch The Thrilling Trailer For Marshall Starring Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad And Kate Hudson

Witness the rise of the man who changed America. Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) is Thurgood Marshall.

Also starring Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown and James Cromwell, watch the exciting trailer now.

Such an dynamic trailer – with a fall season release date, expect to see awards buzz for such a powerful film. Acting, directing, writing, producing categories, including the technical categories for cinematography, costumes, hair and makeup, and production design, with score and song to round out the possible nominations.

Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for the NAACP. The new motion picture, Marshall, is the true story of his greatest challenge in those early days – a fight he fought alongside attorney Sam Friedman (Josh Gad), a young lawyer with no experience in criminal law: the case of black chauffeur Joseph Spell (Sterling K. Brown), accused by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing (Kate Hudson), of sexual assault and attempted murder.

The film has a top notch production team.

Directed by Reginald Hudlin, Marshall is produced by Paula Wagner, Jonathan Sanger ( The Elephant Man, Vanilla Sky, Flight Of The Navigator), and Reginald Hudlin. It is written by Jake Koskoff and Michael Koskoff.

Hudlin co-produced the 88th Academy Awards ceremony in 2016 and was one of the producers of Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Picture for the film.

Paula Wagner launched Cruise/Wagner Productions (C/W) with her former CAA client Tom Cruise. C/W went on to produce such critically acclaimed films as The Others, The Last Samurai, Vanilla Sky, Without Limits, Shattered Glass, Narc, Elizabethtown, and Ask the Dust, as well as Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds (which Wagner executive produced). C/W was responsible for the original Mission: Impossible film trilogy (Mission: Impossible 2 and Mission: Impossible III).

Open Road Films will release Marshall on October 13, 2017. Mark it on your calendar now.

Life After ‘Heavenly Creatures’: How Melanie Lynskey Keeps Finding Original Roles

Life After ‘Heavenly Creatures’: How Melanie Lynskey Keeps Finding Original Roles
Surveying Melanie Lynskey’s diverse body of work, from her impressive debut in Peter Jackson’s “Heavenly Creatures” 20 years ago to the Duplass Brothers’ “Togetherness,” one thing is clear: Lynskey takes her project choices as seriously as she does her performances.

Over the last few years, Lynskey has appeared in a robust offering of indie films: Joe Swanberg’s “Happy Christmas,” Todd Louiso’s “Hello I Must Be Going,” and her friend Clea Duvall’s directorial debut, “The Intervention,” for which she received a special jury award from the Sundance Film Festival. She continues her winning streak with Linus Phillips’ “Rainbow Time,” an offbeat comedy that explores sensitive territory without devolving into cliche.

The film stars Phillips as Shonzi, a developmentally delayed jokester with a fondness for women, filmmaking, and his brother Todd (Timm Sharp). Lynskey plays Lyndsay, Todd’s idealistic girlfriend, who coddles Shonzi during trying moments when Todd would rather punch him.

Could A Female Finally Be Nominated For Best Cinematography This Year?

Mandy Walker (Courtesy: ‘The Hollywood Reporter’)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

It seems that the conversation around making the Oscars more inclusive and diverse is an endless conversation. Perhaps one of the statistics that oftentimes goes unnoticed is the Academy’s vast underrepresentation of female cinematographers in the best cinematography category — which has been around since the inception of the awards show.

This year we might just have a breakthrough with Mandy Walker and her work on the Theodore Melfi-directed Hidden Figures — which stars three black actresses in the main roles: Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe. General audiences won’t see the film until January 13, 2017, but critics are starting to see it this Friday.

In the history of the Oscars — all 88 ceremonies that are in the books so far — no women have won for best cinematography, mostly because none have ever been nominated in the category.

The Lrm Interview: Peter Sarsgaard Plays the Slimy Villain of The Magnificent Seven

Actor Peter Sarsgaard plays villain Bart Bogue in Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven

When you go to see Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven this weekend, you’ll probably be impressed by how slimy a villain Peter Sarsgaard plays as Bartholomew Bogue, a wealthy man who causes problems for the town of Rose Creek, to the point where they need to call on a team of unruly outlaws, played by Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D’Onofrio and Byung-hun Lee, for help. (We’ll have interviews with the latter two very soon.)

It’s not the first time that Sarsgaard has played a bad guy, since he did play Hector Hammond in the unfortunate attempt to bring Green Lantern to the big screen. But before that, Sarsgaard has starred in a mix of indie and studio movie that established himself as one of the great supporting character actors.

In the year 2016, it’s no secret that as glamorous as old Hollywood seemed on the surface, the truth was far less wholesome. With that in mind, “The Last Tycoon,” written and directed by Billy Ray (the under-appreciated talent behind such films as “Shattered Glass,” adapting a famously unfinished roman a clef by F.

Chyna Remembered: WWE Superstars Mourn Legendary Wrestler
The professional wrestling world is in mourning today, after news broke last night that Joanie Laurer, best known as WWE Superstar Chyna, passed away at the age of 45. We showed you a number of social media posts that came in last night, from pro wrestlers past and present, paying tribute to this squared circle icon. As the news continued to spread, even more wrestlers paid their respects through social media, as you can see in the several tweets we've gathered below.

The former wrestler's manager told E! News last night that "she was found peacefully," and police couldn't find any signs of foul play. Authorities were called to Chyna's apartment in Redondo Beach, California on Wednesday afternoon, after a friend discovered she was not breathing. She was pronounced dead on the scene, and the cause of death is currently unknown.

On Mubi Off #5: "The Official Story" & "Spotlight"

On Mubi Off is a column exploring two films: one currently available on Mubi in the United States, and the other screening offsite (in theaters, on VOD, Blu-ray/DVD, etc).On MUBIThe Official Story (Luis Puenzo, 1985)My instinct to stand, whenever possible, slightly outside the zeitgeist leads me to look askew at things like the Academy Awards. To my mind, they're a good excuse to have a party (heavily attended, so I can pay that much less attention to the ceremony itself), though I realize they have a certain fleeting cachet that can boost the prospects of a film or a career. As a metric of quality, however, they're about as worthless as any mass-consensus accolade. I love Oscar-feted films like The Silence of the Lambs and Schindler's List—to name two stopped-clock cases where AMPAS's tastes corresponded to my own—despite and not because of the number of nude
