At the Museum of Modern Art première of Tara Subkoff's sharp-witted #Horror, Timothy Hutton spoke to me about the art (curated by Urs Fischer) and parenting, and Lydia Hearst made a Drew Barrymore out of Wes Craven's Scream comparison, as Chloë Sevigny, Balthazar Getty, Taryn Manning, Stella Schnabel, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Natasha Lyonne, Sadie Seelert, Haley Murphy, Bridget McGarry, Blue Lindeberg, Mina Sundwall and Emma Adler walked the red carpet.
Wes Anderson favorite Waris Ahluwalia (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Darjeeling Limited, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou) confided to me that Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects and House Of 1000 Corpses are the two horror films he loves and at the Players Club after party confirmed he now has three.

Read More: Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are Longing Lovers in Gorgeous Alternative 'Carol' Posters Film posters typically capture the essence of a film in a single frame with the colors and photography mirroring the movie's overall mood and message, but Van Orton Design, a duo of twin brothers from Turin, Italy, has challenged these conventions by creating a series of alternative neon film posters for some of the world's most famous films. The reinterpretations are illustrated with a perspective drawing technique called "one point perspective," in which a single point near the center of the frame converges with all lines (both perpendicular and parallel). These retro-futuristic illustrations are characterized by vibrant neon colors with thick black lines that lead your eyes to the center with great appeal. Ultimately, they offer new interpretations of hits such as "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," "Indiana Jones and the Last. »

Wes Anderson (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Royal Tenenbaums, Moonrise Kingdom) is one hell of a director. The thought of him making a horror movie has me kind of giddy! I mean, I can see it now… This… Continue Reading →

The same faces are joining Wes Anderson again on his next project.
A few days after it was announced that the next movie by Wes Anderson would be a stop-motion animated movie about dogs, The Nerdist spoke with Jeff Goldblum and revealed that the actor would be joining a few other Anderson regulars for the movie.
According to Goldblum, he would be starring in the movie alongside Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, and Bob Balaban. One would assume that other names such Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Jason Schwartzman would be along for the film also.
The Nerdist added that Goldblum mentioned that the film would be “Japanese-inspired.” Goldblum was in Anderson’s last film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, but also showed up in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Norton and Balaban have been in the last two films — Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel while Cranston has yet »

During one of his weekly Los Angeles jazz shows with The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, Goldblum revealed that he'll lend his voice to a "Japanese-inspired" stop-motion movie about a pack of dogs.
The filmmaker's 2014 period comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel made more than $158 million at the worldwide box office – and won a total of four Academy Awards this year.
Watch a trailer for Fantastic Mr. Fox below: »
After great success the first time around with "Fantastic Mr. Fox" several years ago, filmmaker Wes Anderson is returning to the world of stop-motion animation with a new animal-centric project which this time will deal with dogs says The Playlist.
Anderson's films are kind of known for scenes in which several pooches come to harm - a fox terrier gets an arrow in the neck in "Moonrise Kingdom," the family beagle gets run over in "The Royal Tenenbaums," another beagle gets drugged in "Fantastic Mr. Fox," and a three-legged labrador gets disciplined in "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou".
The project is said to be Anderson's immediate next picture and that pre-production work has begun. It is Not the project he spoke about last year, an anthology style film inspired by the work of Italian filmmaker Vittorio De Sica.

This week Wes Anderson's lovely "Moonrise Kingdom" is released in a sparkly new Criterion Collection edition. Coming after the left-turn that was the animated "Fantastic Mr. Fox" which followed the slightly disappointing one-two punch of 2004's "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" and 2007's "The Darjeeling Limited," many viewers (Playlisters among them) found 'Moonrise' not just a return to form, but one of his best films to date. Mining a rich seam of emotion that his occasionally too-precious aesthetic can sometimes put at a remove, "Moonrise Kingdom," while gorgeous, symmetrical, and slathered in trademark whip-pans and deadpan expressions, is actually touching. And a lot of that is in the suite of cherishable performances given by an ensemble of Anderson regulars, marked out by a few new additions. It has reminded us once again of Anderson's facility for creating (often through costume or a physical quirk, it must be said) a. »

Some of the best things in life come in pairs, and film is no different. No, I don’t mean sequels and/or remakes, because I think we all know how those often turn out. Instead, I mean those actors and directors who very frequently collaborate on films, so much so that it feels odd when the actor does not appear in one of the director’s films.
There have been some incredible collaborations throughout cinema history; Kurosawa Akira and Toshiro Mifune brought the samurai film to life, Clint Eastwood and Sergio Leone breathed new life into the dying western in the 1960s, and Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro brought audiences some of the best films to come out of New Hollywood in the 1970s and into the 90s. And of course there are amazing collaborations in modern cinema: Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson, Wes Anderson and his troupe of actors, »

From playing a role in Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, having recent Le Conversazioni with Joyce Carol Oates, Stephen Sondheim, Zadie Smith, Patrick McGrath, Isabella Rossellini, Salman Rushdie, Julie Taymor, Jeffrey Eugenides, Marina Abramovic and Daniel Libeskind, to co-founding Open Roads: New Italian Cinema, with this year's highlights including Ivano de Matteo's The Dinner (I Nostri Ragazzi) and Lamberto Sanfelice's Chlorine (Cloro), starring Sara Serraiocco - Antonio Monda has done a great deal already.

Fans of twee cinema, listen up - a Wes Anderson-themed cafe just opened in Italy.
Anderson designed the newly opened Bar Luce in Milan, which features a decor just as idiosyncratic as the Grand Budapest Hotel filmmaker's movies.

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture: Here's another aca-hilarious Honest Trailer, this one striking Pitch Perfect: Watch Blast It Biggs! Where Are You?!, a short documentary about a minor character from Star Wars who originally had a bigger significance (via Geek Tyrant). This bar in Milan was designed by Wes Anderson. Best part might be the pinball machines made for his movies The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and Castello Cavalcanti. See more photos at Screen Crush.

While we're still waiting to hear what movie Wes Anderson will gear up next, the filmmaker has taken some time to bring his fussy eye for detail to the design of Bar Luce, a new café in Milan, Italy. And if you ever wanted to step onto the set of a Wes Anderson movie, and maybe have a cake from Mendl's, this is as close as you're going to get. "...there is no ideal angle for this space. It is for real life, and ought to have numerous good spots for eating, drinking, talking, reading, etc. While I do think it would make a pretty good movie set, I think it would be an even better place to write a movie. I tried to make it a bar I would want to spend my own non-fictional afternoons in," the director said about his formica, wood-panelled, '50s/'60s designers wet dream. »

Filmmaker Wes Anderson has, over the years, infused his features with a very distinct style, one that not only sets him apart from other directors in the medium, but also makes his works instantly recognisable. Anderson’s distinctiveness also extends to the way he goes about shooting action scenes, which often pop up in his features, be they fights between siblings, as in The Darjeeling Limited, or full-scale shootouts between multiple people, such as in The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Now Vimeo user Dávid Velenczei has made a supercut examining the myriad ways in which Anderson portrays different violent encounters, from the preparation to the actual action to the aftermath. The video, titled “Wes Anderson’s Violence”, can be seen below, with the following message attached.

When Wes Anderson released his 1998 sophomore feature “Rushmore” to almost universal acclaim, it was clear that the seeds of his now-trademark style had not yet fully blossomed. Yet they had certainly been planted: the perfectly symmetrical frames, meticulous color schemes and abundant doses of melancholia and deadpan humor all began to take root in Anderson’s quietly mesmerizing film, a funny and evocative look at young manhood and the perils of idealism. This was a decided point of contrast from his more naturalistic debut film “Bottle Rocket,” a picture every bit the equal of “Rushmore” in its own humble way. Anderson’s particular style of filmmaking would extend to polarizing extremes in his next few features, most notably his “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” which has grown in stature and emotional resonance since its 2004 release to become perhaps the director’s most overlooked film. But one could argue “Rushmore »

Chicago – Director Noah Baumbach is a master in creating cinematic atmosphere. Whether it’s the adolescent mood of “The Squid and the Whale,” the weird loneliness of “Frances Ha” or his screenplays with director Wes Anderson, Baumbach generates a worthy emotional imprint. His latest film is “While We’re Young.”
“While We’re Young” is a meditation on dichotomy, as Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts portray a childless fortysomething couple that are losing commonality with their baby producing friends. When a younger couple – portrayed by Adam Driver and Amanda Seyfried – come into their lives, there is a sense that the older couple is taking one more stab at the youth that chronologically has slipped away. Filled with the comedy of awkwardness and keen observations on the human condition, “While We’re Young’ is another expansive achievement from the mind of Noah Baumbach.

It's official: Jeff Goldblum has signed on for Roland Emmerich's sequel to Independence Day. We're incredibly relived, to be honest, as Independence Day 2 would be nothing without Goldblum's MIT grad David Levinson.
Goldblum joins Hunger Games hunk Liam Hemsworth and unknown actor Jessie Usher, who will portray the son of Will Smith's Captain Steven Hiller. Jury's out on which character will be taking over as the franchise's new lead in the Focus star's absence.

Jeff Goldblum is universally loved for his quirky performances and infectious laugh, but have you ever sat down and picked the exact moments that confirm his undeniable superiority to most of Hollywood?

Here.s something you almost certainly never noticed: Wes Anderson has a slight obsession with the colors red and yellow. You probably don.t believe that.s true. Joking aside, there.s a handy video now available that showcases just how often he uses these colors, and it.s pretty damn wonderful. Watch it below! See, what did I tell you? Kudos to Rishi Kaneria for creating Red & Yellow: A Wes Anderson Supercut, which divinely brings together and amalgamates footage from the likes of Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Grand Budapest Hotel, along with the short films Hotel Chevalier and Castello Cavalcanti. Just in case you didn.t know, that.s all of Anderson.s movies - which suggests that he might have a problem. Could be a medical reason for Wes Anderson »
With the 2015 Oscars coming up this weekend, we go back ten years to see if the 2005 awards still hold up today...
It was during an interview with Mark Kermode that I asked him how long someone really needs to gestate on a film, and come up with a proper review. "About ten years", he said. I get his point. Each awards season, it's about, at best, what feels like the best film right then. Not the one that settles over a period of time, or shows you new things each time you watch it. But the one that you watched once, and affected you once. It's the only way, anyway, I can think of why A Beautiful Mind won a Best Picture Oscar.
This weekend, then, is the Academy Awards once more. And I thought it'd be worth rewinding ten years, to see whether the Academy's choices on February 27th »
