The Notable Films of 2011: Part Four

27 December 2010 9:58 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Damsels in Distress

Opens: 2011

Cast: Adam Brody, Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Ryan Metcalf

Director: Whit Stillman

Summary: The story revolves around a group of style-obsessed college girls who take in a new student (Gerwig) and teach her their misguided ways of helping people at their grungy university.

Analysis: The first film in a decade from arthouse darling Whit Stillman, a filmmaker's filmmaker whose three Manhattan-based, yuppie-themed mannerist comedies - "Metropolitan," "Barcelona" and "The Last Days of Disco" - were a big influence on the likes of auteurs such as Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach. Stillman says this film varies somewhat from his previous trilogy of sorts, telling First Things that "This film is different, Completely different. Okay, not completely different, but it’s different".

Independently financed by Castle Rock CEO Martin Shafer, the project recently wrapped filming in Manhattan where Stillman returned to last year after having spent much »

Ed Helms Leaves His Comfort Zone In ‘Cedar Rapids’ Trailer

23 December 2010 8:24 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Tim Lippe clearly doesn’t get out much… like, ever. The man has been cooped up in his quiet little hometown of Brown Valley, Wisconsin his entire life, selling insurance, never venturing into the outside world.

Now, in order to save his company, Tim has to leave his safety zone to attend an insurance convention in the bustling big city of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and in true fish out of water fashion he is completely clueless.

Playing Tim in the February comedy “Cedar Rapids” is “The Daily Show’s” Ed Helms, who has made repressed goobers his specialty in “The Office” and “The Hangover.” Also along for this adventure of discovery is the great John C. Reilly as a hotshot salesman and Sigourney Weaver as the 7th grade teacher Tim is “pre-engaged” to. Fans of “The Wire” will appreciate one moment in particular from Isiah Whitlock Jr. in the trailer. »

14 December 2010 8:30 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Every year, the Golden Globes prove a fun prelude to the Academy Awards, where knowing the winners helps even the odds for all you Otb types. It also provides a looser, anything-can-happen atmosphere of drunken debauchery.

This morning they announced the nominees for the 2011 Golden Globes, and as expected “The King’s Speech” got the most pre-Oscar glory.

But who scored, and who got snubbed? From a “True Grit” shutout to a “Tourist” takeover(?!), here are the biggest shockers from this morning’s Globes nominations.

The Tourist’ is Golden?

In one of the goofier outcomes this year, the past weekend’s much crapped-upon box-office flounderer “The Tourist” got a nod for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy) plus acting nominations for its A-list leads, Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp (not a huge surprise, considering the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has a reputation for honoring mega-stars, despite their worthiness or lack thereof »

Young at Heart

8 December 2010 10:07 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Even before his breakthrough role in Alexander Payne's "Sideways," the industry had caught on to Paul Giamatti. Whether irritating Howard Stern in "Private Parts" or taking crankiness to new heights in "American Splendor," Giamatti was recognized as an actor's actor, reliably turning in scene-stealing performances in a vast range of movies. He continues the trend of playing lovable misanthropes in "Barney's Version," based on the novel by Canadian author Mordecai Richler. The film spans several decades in the life of TV producer Barney Panofsky as he recounts such events as his multiple marriages and his friendship with the alcoholic Boogie (Scott Speedman), whom Barney may or may not have murdered. Back Stage spoke with Giamatti, who, as always, was self-deprecating to the point of self-abuse.Aging OnscreenGiamatti admits the biggest challenge of taking on the role was playing a man in three decades of his life.

Which Oscar Nominee Is Flipping the Bird?

7 December 2010 5:50 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

She's at the red carpet premiere of The Fighter in La-La Land, so you can bet this actress is going to show up in tough-girl leather and show people what's really on her mind. Or is this lady—whose TV show was canceled after just eight episodes this year—just showing off her big statement ring? Whatever the reason is, it doesn't change the fact she's giving the middle-finger salute. Can you guess who the star is? It's Virginia Madsen, of Scoundrels and Sideways fame! Judging by the gorgeous grin, we're guessing she was cheekily showing off her finger bling. Aw, what an adorable ef-you?! »

Paul Giamatti Talks Barney's Version, Win Win, Too Big to Fail, Hangover II

7 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Paul Giamatti is one of those actors who has enough of a global following, thanks to Sideways and HBO mini-series John Adams, to help get certain movies made. Barney's Version is one of them. You can see why he'd want to dive into the best Mordecai Richler character since Duddy Kravitz. The movie is worth seeing for how the actors run with their roles--from doting Dad Dustin Hoffman to Jewish princess Minnie Driver, hippie girlfriend Rachelle Lefevre and dream wife Rosamund Pike. Sony Pictures Classics is giving the film a qualifying run this week in New York and L.A. before a January 11 release. The movie meanders from one decade to another, but Giamatti commands the screen as brainy, womanizing, boozing, out-of-control, charming TV producer »

'Barney's Version' Star Paul Giamatti: 'I'm Amazed I'm Employed'

2 December 2010 11:20 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

"Barney's Version" star Paul Giamatti is the first to acknowledge that he isn't a typical Hollywood leading man. He may not look like his co-star Scott Speedman, but he's still managed to rack up an impressive list of performances in "American Splendor," "Sideways," and the HBO miniseries "John Adams." "I'm continually amazed that I'm employed," Giamatti told TheWrap's editor-in-chief Sharon Waxman at Wednesday night's screening at the ArcLight Sherman Oaks. "I guess I sort of thought I would be a stage actor and I would subsidize it by playing homeless police informants »

The Man and His Dream: A Francis Ford Coppola Profile (Part 4)

30 November 2010 11:28 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg profiles the career of legendary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola in the fourth of a five-part feature... read parts one, two and three.

“[Preston Tucker] developed plans for a car way ahead of its time in terms of engineering; yet the auto industry at large stubbornly resisted his innovative ideas,” remarked moviemaker Francis Ford Coppola who wanted to do a musical on the life and times of the post-World War II maverick car designer with Leonard Bernstein composing the music. The project was stalled with the financial collapse of Coppola’s studio. “I thought it was the best project Francis had ever been involved with,” stated filmmaker George Lucas (American Graffiti). “No studio in town would touch it; they all said it was too expensive. They all wanted $15 million Three Men and a Baby [1987] movies or Crocodile Dundee, Part 73 sequels.” Lucas agreed to provide the funding for the $24 million budget which »
