Don Cheadle’s directorial debut “Miles Ahead” will close the New York Film Festival

27 July 2015 11:29 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Last week, the 2015 New York Film Festival gave us potentially another piece of the awards season puzzle when they announced their Closing Night selection for the fest. In a bit of a surprise, it’s Don Cheadle’s directorial debut Miles Ahead, a biopic about musician Miles Davis. Cheadle co-wrote the screenplay and stars as Davis as well, making this not just a passion project of his, but the sort of film that Academy members can sometimes really gravitate to. The fact that Nyff put it in the super prestigious Closing Night spot only makes it more of a movie we really need to pay attention to… Getting to be the closer at Nyff is a big deal for a flick. Unless this year is an anomaly, it more or less launches you straight into the heart of the Oscar race. Over the past 15 years, almost nothing in this slot »

His years with Frances Taylor (Emayatzy Corinealdi), the love of his life, are also explored.  Nyff Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones said, "I admire Don's film because of all the intelligent decisions he's made about how to deal with Miles, »

Oscar Isaac Will Be a Movie Star by the Time You See Him in The Promise With Christian Bale

15 June 2015 2:27 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Wrap reports that Oscar Isaac will play a Middle Eastern medical student fighting over a woman with Christian Bale, an American reporter (the woman has not yet been cast) in Hotel Rwanda director Terry George's The Promise, a period drama set during the fall of the Ottoman empire.

Christian Bale On For The Promise

15 June 2015 11:39 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Although Christian Bale has had to put plans to star as Travis McGee in the adaptation of The Deep Blue Good-By on hold thanks to a torn knee ligament, he's still lining up other work for when he’s fully recovered. One such job is co-starring with Oscar Isaac in The Promise. Hotel Rwanda/ Reservation Road director Terry George is calling the shots on this one, based on the script he wrote with Robin Swicord. The Promise is set in the dying days of the Ottoman Empire (so the 1920s, then) and explores the relationships between three people: Michael (Isaac), a gifted medical student; Chris (Bale), a renowned American journalist working in Paris; and the beautiful and sophisticated Ana, with that final role of the triumvirate yet to be cast. All being well – and assuming Bale doesn’t break a leg or something – George plans to have the cameras rolling »

Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac to Lead Love Story The Promise

15 June 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A formidable dynamic duo is forming on the new film from Hotel Rwanda director Terry George. The Wrap reports that Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac will star in The Promise, an epic period love story penned by screenwriter Robin Swicord (Memoirs of a Geisha). The drama takes place during the last days of the Ottoman Empire and revolves around a love triangle between a brilliant medical student named Michael, “the beautiful and sophisticated” Ana, and a Paris-based American journalist named Chris. Bale will play Chris, an AP reporter, while Isaac will fill the role of Michael, a man conflicted by his love for Ana and old-world traditions. The setting is a curious one, as the fall of the Ottoman Empire coincided with the Armenian genocide. George chronicled the Rwandan genocide to heartbreaking results with Hotel Rwanda, so it'll be interesting to see how heavily The Promise delves into the politics of the era. »

Christian Bale And Oscar Isaac Make 'The Promise'

15 June 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Batman and Poe Dameron, so to speak, will be in the same movie —but this ain't no crossover. Two of our favorite actors, Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, are teaming up for a new project, and it certainly sounds promising. The Wrap reports that the pair will star in "The Promise," the latest effort from "Hotel Rwanda" director Terry George, who co-wrote the script with Robin Swicord ("Memoirs Of A Geisha," "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button"). The story will be set against the backdrop of the Armendian genocide and follow an AP reporter (Bale) and medical student (Isaac) who fall for the same woman. Production will begin this fall, so maybe the movie will be a contender on the awards circuit in 2016?  »

Seyi Babatope shooting Nollywood’s first family film

18 March 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Director also plans to shoot sequel to When Love Happens in London later this year.

Seyi Babatope is now shooting what he calls the first Nollywood family film, on location in Lagos, Nigeria.

The film, Lunchtime Heroes, is about a group of seven students who are bad at sports who have to take part in a skills challenge. Their teacher is a volunteer through the National Youth Service Corps who doesn’t fit in at the upper-class school.

“A family film has never been done before here,” Babatope told Screen on the set in Lagos. “I wanted to give African kids something to relate to, to uplift the spirit of the African child. It’s a film families can go see together.”

His cast of young unknowns has impressed him; some were scouted through local churches. “The kids are just so good.”

He added, “If an African kid can be Hannah Montana-ish we could be tapping »

Did the 2005 Oscars get it right?

18 February 2015 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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 »
