Review: 'The Night Of' gets off to a breathless start with 'The Beach'

10 July 2016 7:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier this week, I published my rave review of HBO's new miniseries The Night Of, and I'm going to put it into the weekly review rotation for its run, starting with thoughts on the first episode, coming up just as soon as I can name two Yankees headed for the Hall of Fame... "Am I really here?" -Naz Because "The Beach" has been available for a few weeks through HBO's On Demand and streaming services, I've gotten to see the early reactions to it, which tend to break down along three paths: 1)That was unbearable to watch because I felt so bad for Naz as his night out went so horribly awry; 2)That was unbearable to watch because Naz acted like such a complete idiot at every turn; 3)Even though I felt bad for Naz, and/or couldn't believe how stupid he kept being, I was riveted by the whole thing. »

How This ‘Game of Thrones’ Director Moved From Cannes to Westeros (Emmy Video)

4 July 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

How did an indie auteur from Canada come to direct HBO’s spectacular epic “Game of Thrones?”

When writer-director Jeremy Podeswa was asked to helm an episode of Showtime series “Queer as Folk,” which was looking for local directors for its Canadian locations, he figured it was a temporary detour from his career as an indie auteur. His 1999 film, “The Five Senses,” was developed in the Sundance Labs and played Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes. But after “Queer,” producer Alan Poul, who championed “The Five Senses” at Sundance, sought out Podeswa to direct HBO’s “Six Feet Under.” Podeswa did, enthusiastically, one for each of its five seasons.

Podeswa moved on to the period riches of HBO’s “Carnivale,” his first crack at a more elevated genre with fantastical elements. And somehow, he landed the episode in which just about every major character had sex. “It was not an accident,” he said in our video interview. »

The 5 Memorial Day TV Marathons Actually Worth Watching This Weekend

Saturday, May 28"Hatfields & McCoys" (11am to 5pm on History) The 2012 miniseries chronicling one of history's greatest feuds features a great cast — including Kevin Costner, Bill Paxton, Mare Winningham and Powers Boothe — and Emmy-winning production value. If you're craving a historical epic this weekend and/or can't wait for "Roots" (the remake premieres Monday), this could slack that thirst.  Read More: Where to Watch the Best TV of 2016 Sunday, May 29"The Pacific" (10am to 8pm on HBO Signature) This would be worth checking out just for the cast, which includes folks like Rami Malek, Jon Bernthal and Ashley Zukerman very early in their careers.

‘All the Way’: Bryan Cranston reveals the Jackie Kennedy letter that made Lbj click for him

21 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Accidental president. Vietnam. Civil Rights Act. Bully. This is Lyndon B. Johnson’s legacy, or at least how he’s often remembered. New HBO film All the Way seeks to illuminate many sides of the man who stepped into the highest office in the land after John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Bryan Cranston plays Lbj in the film, premiering on HBO tonight, following his Tony-winning turn as the president in All the Way on Broadway. After he’d already done extensive research and study of the play’s text (itself thoroughly researched by playwright Robert Schenkkan), Cranston went on a second visit to the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum in Austin, TX, and that’s where the person of Lbj really clicked for the actor. “The character is always outside of you until you hopefully allow it to seep in. Then it becomes a part of you,” Cranston told HitFix. »

Bryan Cranston Takes Lbj ‘All the Way’: His Journey From Stage to HBO

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

Four minutes into “All the Way,” the actor Bryan Cranston, playing Lyndon B. Johnson, walks into the Oval Office. The camera cuts back and forth between the 36th president’s point of view and a tight shot of his face as he slowly moves through the room, which is filled with the belongings of the recently dead John F. Kennedy. It’s Johnson’s first time entering the room as president. The scene is silent. For a full minute, it’s just Cranston, a camera, and some music. It’s a powerful moment, one that wasn’t in the Broadway version of “All the Way,” which also starred Cranston, and was, like the HBO original movie premiering May 21, written by Robert Schenkkan.

“You’d have a hard time making that work onstage,” says Schenkkan. “It’s a film moment. That’s what I looked to create.”

Scare Campaign sells to Metrodome in UK and other territories

30 March 2016 5:44 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Scare Campaign has secured international sales, including a deal with Metrodome Distribution in the UK..

The film, directed by Colin and Cameron Cairnes (100 Bloody Acres) and produced by Julie Ryan (Red Dog), has sold to the UK, Latin America, the Middle East, Turkey, Greece and Indonesia..

.We are thrilled that the fantastic traction Scare Campaign has gained through positive media reviews, sold out screenings and social media, has translated into an international appetite for the film., Ryan said..

The producer and directors have been doing roadshow screenings, taking the film around the country.

.The conventional wisdom is that younger Australians aren't interested in seeing local films on the big screen, but our experience with these event screenings would suggest otherwise", Colin Cairnes said..

"It has been heartening to see a predominantly young audience come to these events and clearly get a kick out of the film's many twists and turns »

Edgar Wright Has Hired The Punisher For His Next Movie

24 February 2016 9:41 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Edgar Wright’s eagerly-awaited next film, Baby Driver, has just finalised its cast – and the word is coming in from Deadline that it includes Jon Bernthal. The report says that Bernthal will be playing the role of Griff; although not much is known about the role, it’s said to be “key”. He’ll be joining Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm and Lily James.

The plot of Baby Driver follows a crime boss’ (Spacey) efforts to persuade a young, talented driver (Elgort) to work for him. The driver, nicknamed Baby, “relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to shield him from the chaos that surrounds him, but he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom”.

I’m sure it’ll make a lot more sense when we see it play out on screen, but considering that it’s Edgar Wright, »

Andrew Knight's "insane" year: Hacksaw Ridge and writing Rake on planes

7 February 2016 7:36 PM, PST | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge.

If there was an Aacta award for Australia's busiest screenwriter, Andrew Knight would take the prize in a cakewalk..

Last year the veteran of Seachange and Full Frontal worked on three films and two television series.

In between trips to La and London (where he's developing a film with Jonathan Teplitzky, Shakespeare in Love's David Parfitt and Essential's Ian Collie), Knight managed to churn out a new season of Rake and another Jack Irish, the latter of which premieres this Thursday on the ABC.

"It was just insanity", Knight said..

"I'm taking a huge break at the moment. I don't know how long, but I'm taking a long time off. I'm off to India shortly with my wife".

"I was writing Rake scripts on planes, and producing Jack Irish with [Ian] Collie. The year's a blur for me. I think the public's going to be »

Interview: How Kristie Macosko Krieger Went From Steven Spielberg's Assistant to His Producer on 'Bridge of Spies'

2 February 2016 10:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It's a safe bet that there are a ton of Steven Spielberg fans who would love to tap into the brain of Kristie Macosko Krieger. She's been working with Spielberg for over two decades and has been involved with every single project he's been involved with since 1997. That means she's been privy to every stage of production on movies like Minority Report, War of the Worlds, and Lincoln, on TV shows like Band of Brothers and The Pacific and in Spielberg's prolific philanthropy, including the Shoah foundation.  But Krieger has long since been promoted beyond being just Spielberg's assistant. She's now an active, full on producer and her latest production with Spielberg is one of the best movies of 2015, Bridge of Spies. Out now on Blu-ray, DVD and...

Bruce McKenna Writing Biopic on Russian Novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn

28 January 2016 7:21 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Primeridian Entertainment has tapped Bruce McKenna to adapt its untitled movie about Russian dissident writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

The biopic is adapted from D.M. Thomas’s biography “Alexander Solzhenitsyn: A Century in His Life.”

Solzhenitsyn spent eight years in Joseph Stalin’s Soviet prison system, beginning in 1945, and wrote about his imprisonment in the 1973 book “The Gulag Archipelago.” He also wrote “One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich,” “Cancer Ward” and “August 1914.” He was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1970 “for the ethical force with which he has pursued the indispensable traditions of Russian literature.”

He was expelled from the Soviet Union in 1974 due to his criticism of the totalitarian system, but returned to Russia in 1994 after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. He died in Moscow in 2008.

McKenna was the creator and co-executive producer of HBO’s “The Pacific,” and wrote three episodes of HBO’s “Band Of Brothers, »

Contest: Win Bridge Of Spies Blu-Ray

19 January 2016 5:34 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether it’s the genre-defining Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers or The Pacific, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg have a long and prestigious history with wartime dramas, and it’s one that continues with the excellent Bridge of Spies, which hits Blu-Ray on February 2nd.

Centering around Hanks as a Brooklyn Lawyer in over his head, Bridge of Spies follows one James Donovan as he is sent on the near-impossible mission of freeing a captured American U-2 pilot. No small task, particularly when you consider that Spielberg’s gripping drama takes place during the height of the Cold War, a time when tensions between the USA and Ussr were on a razor’s edge.

To celebrate the film’s release on Blu-ray, we’re going to give away one copy to a lucky reader. To enter for a chance to win, simply subscribe to our brand new push notification »
