The Impact of the Toronto Audience Award on the Oscar race

8 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Over the weekend, the Toronto International Film Festival gave out its extremely prestigious Audience Award, a prize that’s often considered to be a harbinger of future Oscar success. To one degree or another, almost all movies that win the prize tend to receive some level of Academy Award attention. The award is highly sought after and a number of films were thought to be in the running at this year’s Toronto Film Festival. Well, for those of you who don’t know which flick took the prize, I’ll save that for a little later in the article, but right now I want to get into what the Audience Award means and which titles were thought to be eying it up in a big way. Historically, the Audience Award at Toronto has really been a signifier for the Academy, especially of late. The award was first given out »

Toronto Film Review: ‘The Good Lie’

7 September 2014 6:11 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A good lie, according to Huckleberry Finn, is a prevarication where the “rightness” of the outcome excuses the “wrongness” of having fibbed in the first place. to an uplifting and overly earnest picture that isn’t really about her character at all — nor should it be. But if that mistruth helps spread the word about the Sudanese situation, earning Warner Bros. a pretty penny in the process, how wrong can it be?

The thing is, we miss Reese. Over the past decade, the actress has grown too scarce on the bigscreen, and though “Wild” promises to be her big awards vehicle this year, the advertising campaign for “The Good Lie” suggests a chance to see America’s sweetheart in feisty “Erin Brockovich” or “The Blind Side” mode, demanding, “Who do I have to screw around here to see a goddamn immigration supervisor?” in her most sexually empowered redneck drawl.

That happens, »

Dench Joins Cumberbatch In "Richard III"

21 August 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Judi Dench is set to play Cecily, Duchess of York opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of The BBC's upcoming TV adaptation of Shakespeare's "Richard III".

The telemovie will be part of the second series of "The Hollow Crown," following on from 2012's successful four telemovie adaptations of Shakespeare's historical plays. That series, starring the likes of Jeremy Irons, Tom Hiddleston and Ben Whishaw, adapted "Richard II," "Henry IV Part 1," "Henry IV Part 2" and "Henry V".

"The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses" will adapt the other famed historical tetralogy of Shakespeare - the three parts of "Henry VI" and "Richard III". One difference this time out is that the telemovies will be trilogy with "Henry VI" being shrunk from a three-part play into a two-part telemovie.

Tom Sturridge ("On the Road," "The Boat That Rocked") has been cast as Henry VI in both parts of that production. »

Could Replacement Actors Keep the Avengers Franchise Going After the Original Cast Leaves?

12 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While Marvel’s comic book adaptations are a hot commodity just now, the cast of Marvel/Disney’s Avengers franchise are running out of movies on their contracts and have dropped hints that they are not going to play their respective hero characters beyond their current commitments.  Will Marvel and Disney let the franchises die after the cast leaves or will a new cast take over?

Movie studios don’t like to let go of a good thing. They like to find ways to keep a lucrative franchise going, even without the original cast. For instance, when the younger cast of X-Men: First Class replaced the stars of the original trilogy; or when the Star Trek: Next Generation cast took over the Star Trek franchise from the classic Trek crew. Since Marvel/Disney’s the Avengers was a colossal hit and the sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron is expected »

First look at Don Cheadle as Miles Davis

8 July 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Miles Ahead, the upcoming Miles Davis biopic directed, starring, and co-written by Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda, Iron Man 3), starts its shoot this week in Cincinnati after a decade in development. The long-anticipated film about the legendary trumpeter – often considered the definitive jazz soloist of the 20th century – will feature Cheadle as Davis with Ewan McGregor (Star Wars) and Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man) in supporting roles.

With full rights to Davis’ discography and a blessing from the Davis family, Miles Ahead has everything going for it. It has been a labour of love for Cheadle, who is a longtime fan of Davis and has learned how to play the trumpet for the film (though all the trumpet in the film will be, of course, Davis himself).

Below, we’ve compiled a few snapshots from behind the scenes of Miles Ahead with Don Cheadle – including a bonus shot from Ewan McGregor, »

Behold: Don Cheadle Is Miles Davis.

12 April 2014 6:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Twenty years ago, one million Rwandans were killed in one of the worst genocides in recorded history. The sheer magnitude of the horrors committed are nearly impossible to fathom. How can you adequately pay tribute to the lives lost in one of mankind's worst transgressions? "Kinyarwanda," winner of the World Cinema Dramatic Audience Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, is an effort in empathy. Weaving together six different tales into one grand narrative, it's a complex and realistic portrayal of life and resilience during the genocide. "I thought I knew something about Rwanda, but I didn't really know very much," Roger Ebert said of the film. "I was moved by 'Hotel Rwanda,' but not really shaken this deeply. Not like this.... Here is a powerful film." Watch "Kinyarwanda," streaming below for free on SnagFilms, Indiewire's parent company. Do your part to keep the memory of the victims alive. »

Diego Luna on ‘Cesar Chavez’: ‘The Story of Farm Workers Matters’

21 March 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The life and works of activist Cesar Chavez were remembered both on the big screen and through the testimonies of those who knew him at the Los Angeles premiere of helmer Diego Luna’s biopic “Cesar Chavez.”

In addition to cast members Michael Peña, America Ferrera and Rosario Dawson, Luna was also joined Thursday at the Tcl Chinese Theatre by Chavez’s son Paul and 83-year-old Dolores Huerta, who founded the National Farmworkers Assn. with Chavez.

Paul Chavez said this film, produced by Mexico’s Canana Films, distributed by Pantelion Films and co-financed by Participant Media, was made after 30 years of searching for the right opportunity to tell his father’s story of standing up for the rights and dignity of migrant workers.

“Shortly after my father passed away, we were approached by people that knew my father, marched with him and loved him. But for different reasons it didn’t happen, »

What Matters? Documentary on Poverty Screens in St. Louis February 18th

13 February 2014 6:36 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When the award-winning documentary What Matters? Screened at the St. Louis International Film festival in 2011 (under its original title Give A Damn?), Travis Keune reviewed it here at We Are Movie Geeks and wrote:

“When considering the scale of the experiment, taken on by three guys with virtually no budget and even less understanding of what they’re getting into, Give A Damn? is a tremendous accomplishment.” (read all of Travis’ review Here) http://www.wearemoviegeeks.com/2011/11/give-a-damn-sliff-review/

Since then, the film has gone through a series of edits (in addition to the retitling) and contains a new sound mix, new scenes, and more for its current general release format. The feature length documentary focuses on 3 friends from St. Louis (two idealistic activists and one skeptic) who attempt to live on $1.25 a day, the world’s standard for extreme poverty, as they journey across 3 continents.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Cesar Chavez’

12 February 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A passion project about a passionate man takes surprisingly flat form in “Cesar Chavez,” demonstrating that however effective the tactic may be in real life, starving oneself for social justice doesn’t necessarily make for the most compelling screen entertainment — but then, preaching the virtues of nonviolence has never been cinema’s strong suit. Recognizing that Chavez’s victory in earning equal rights for migrant workers remains scandalously under-taught in classrooms, director Diego Luna responds with a biopic that feels more polite than political, counting on the worthiness of his subject and the participation of a well-meaning ensemble to galvanize mostly Latino auds.

Too young (or young-looking) to play Chavez himself, Luna cast sterling character actor Michael Pena in a rare leading role — the sort of opportunity that ought to mark a turning point in his career. However, while playing Chavez may sound like an irresistible opportunity for any Mexican-American actor, »
