Margaret Atwood adaptations are coming to streaming services in waves. Hulu previously announced a 10-episode series adaptation of her 1985 novel “The Handmaid’s Tale” starring Elisabeth Moss. This past June, Netflix and CBC greenlit a six-hour miniseries adaptation of her novel “Alias Grace,” written and produced by Sarah Polley (“Stories We Tell,” “The Last Waltz”) and directed by Mary Harron (“American Psycho”). Today, Netflix and CBC announce that the miniseries will star Oscar-winning actress Anna Paquin.

Paul Thomas Anderson Brings ‘Punch-Drunk Love’ to The Criterion Collection This November

15 August 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

November tends to be the biggest month of the year for the Criterion Collection, the boutique home video company releasing some of their most exciting releases in time for the holiday shopping season. And, lucky for us, that trend continues in 2016, as Criterion has just revealed this year’s batch of November titles, and the slate includes some absolutely major must-owns. From Paul Thomas Anderson finally joining the Collection (and bringing Adam Sandler along with him!) to a series of samurai films that have never gotten their proper due, these are movies that are worth stampeding for on Black Friday.

Check out Criterion’s full November 2016 slate below, listed in rough order of our excitement for each title. And be sure to visit Criterion’s website for full release info.

1. “Punch-Drunk Love” (dir. Paul Thomas Anderson, 2002). #843

The top 25 films of Jeff Daniels

5 July 2016 3:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Dan Cooper Jul 8, 2016

From Dumb & Dumber and The Martian, through to Arachnophobia and Steve Jobs - we salute the screen work of Jeff Daniels...

They say that when you play the Game of Thrones, “you win or you die”. The Game of Jeff Daniels, however, is an undeniably different beast and for the most part is a definite “you win or you win”. After viewing dozens of Jeff Daniels movies and spending many, many hours with his on-screen personas, it’s fair to say that the maxim has been sorely tested but guess what? It still holds true. This list has been carefully curated to celebrate the veteran actor’s talent, versatility and wit and no matter which (if any) of these movies you decide to revisit or check out for the first time, Jeff is guaranteed to give you something to love in each and every one.

25. Dumb And Dumber To (2014)

17 June 2016 9:43 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

You may not know Miranda Bailey’s name, but you probably know her work.

Early in her career, she executive produced Noah Baumbach’s The Squid and the Whale, and since then her producing credits have included Oren Moverman’s Time Out of Mind and the award-winning documentary Spinning Plates. Bailey’s production company Cold Iron Pictures was behind the award-winning 2015 Sundance sensation Diary of a Teenage Girl, in which she played a supporting role opposite Kristen Wiig.

Inside Endemol Shine’s Ambitious Plan to Conquer Global TV

29 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When top executives of Endemol Shine Group gather next week at the Majestic hotel in Cannes, the scene inside the conference room might be mistaken for a United Nations Security Council meeting.

Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Israel, Russia, China and Switzerland are among the more than 30 territories that will be represented alongside the superpowers of North America and the U.K. at an extra-long table. The gathering is so large that there’s a microphone and a nameplate with country flag set out for each participant.

The brainstorming and information-sharing sessions will be held largely in English, although there will be side conversations among smaller groups in numerous native tongues. Coinciding with the annual MipTV international sales conference, the group will spend a few days talking shop, screening projects and generally arming themselves with the latest market intel.

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 2: #75-51

12 January 2016 5:49 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our countdown of the 100 best films of the 21st century continues. This is Part 2 #75 through 51.

Click here for Part 1 (#100-76)!

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, including having films gross »

Watch: 4-Minute Tribute To The Films Of Noah Baumbach

8 January 2016 3:19 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With nine films to his name before the age of 50, Noah Baumbach has time and time again proved himself to be a zealous, original auteur and screenwriter. Beginning with the acerbic, quick-witted ode to collegiate Neverland, “Kicking and Screaming,” in 1995, Baumbach’s films have been filled with spirited individuals yearning for significance, and there aren’t many other directors who can exfoliate such emotional animation. Read More: Retrospective: The Films Of Noah Baumbach A co-writing collaboration with Wes Anderson on 2004’s “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” and his Academy Award-nominated screenplay for his own directorial effort, 2005’s “The Squid and the Whale,” not only brought an avalanche of regurgitated childhood memories onto this author’s lap, but the semi-autobiographical picture made Baumbach a household name. In this new video essay, Fernando Andrés takes a look at Baumbach’s career, and focuses specifically on his achievements as a »
