Trailer for TNT’s psychological thriller ‘The Alienist’

17 October 2017 9:21 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

TNT have released the first trailer for their eagerly anticipated series The Alienist, which is based on the Anthony Award-winning international bestseller by Caleb Carr. Set in 1896 amidst a backdrop of vast wealth, extreme poverty and technological innovation, this psychological thriller stars Daniel Brühl (Rush), Luke Evans (The Girl on The Train), Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral) and Brian Geraghty (The Hurt Locker).

The Alienist opens when a series of haunting, gruesome murders of boy prostitutes grips New York City. Newly appointed police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt (Geraghty) calls upon criminal psychologist (aka alienist) Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Brühl) and newspaper illustrator John Moore (Evans) to conduct the investigation in secret. They are joined by Sara Howard (Fanning), a headstrong secretary determined to become the city’s first female police detective. Using the emerging disciplines of psychology and early forensic investigation techniques, this band of social outsiders set out to find and apprehend »

'Te Ata': Film Review

13 October 2017 9:28 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

That it was produced by the Chickasaw Nation signals that the film about famed Native American performer Te Ata will be nothing less than worshipful. This gauzily photographed biopic certainly fulfills its mission of educating audiences about its culturally important but little-known central figure. Unfortunately, the film too often comes across as saccharine, lacking the steeliness that its subject must have possessed to have accomplished as much as she did. Te Ata ultimately feels more suitable for classroom than mainstream consumption.  

Nonetheless, the film tells a fascinating tale. Te Ata (Q'orianka Kilcher, The New World), born Mary Frances Thompson »

Film Review: ‘Te Ata’

12 October 2017 4:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The life and career of Te Ata, the Native American trailblazer who celebrated her people’s culture through performance and, in doing so, helped educate the country about Native traditions, is undeniably uplifting. But the well-intentioned biopic is ungainly, overtly articulating everything it doesn’t need to yet failing to explain much of what starts out as unclear about the tale. Lacking both fluidity and complexity, “Te Ata” is a functional but one-note tribute told through educational storytelling that, unlike its subject, doesn’t manage to inspire.

Director Nathan Frankowski and writer Esther Luttrell sabotage their work’s momentum from the start. In a 1906 opener, a young Mary Frances Thompson (Boriana Williams) narrates origin myths about her Chickasaw nation — located on land that would eventually become Oklahoma — while her father T.B. (Gil Birmingham) and her uncle, Chickasaw governor Douglas Johnson (Graham Greene), discuss their tribe’s rapidly changing political future. It’s a clunkily assembled introduction, »

Julie Taymor to Adapt Gloria Steinem’s Memoir

28 September 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Steinem: Gage Skidmore

In what sounds like fan fiction dreamed up by feminist film lovers, word has come that Gloria Steinem’s memoir, “My Life on the Road,” is being adapted for the big screen. And Julie Taymor and Tony-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl are taking it there. Deadline broke the news that the former will direct the feminist activist’s coming-of-age story and the latter will pen the screenplay.

The film, hailing from June Pictures, will chronicle “Steinem’s growth into a galvanizing symbol for equality, with a focus on the surprising encounters along the road that helped shaped her,” the source writes.

Taymor is perhaps best known for directing Broadway sensation “The Lion King.” Her screen credits include “Frida” and “Across the Universe.” “In the Next Room” and “The New World” are among Ruhl’s stage credits. This project marks her debut as a screenwriter.

In addition to directing, Taymor is also producing alongside Lynn Hendee (“Ender’s Game”) and June PicturesAndrew Duncan and Alex Saks. Steinem and Amy Richards (“Woman with Gloria Steinem”) are serving as executive producers.

“I can’t imagine anyone more magical than Julie Taymor — or more understanding than Lynn Hendee and Sarah Ruhl,” said Steinem. “So now that we are on this journey together, I hope and believe the result will encourage many more travelers — especially women in all our diverse realities — to tell our own stories.”

Taymor added, “When I read the book, it demanded that it be a film. It’s so vividly cinematic, with entertaining and complex characters and, like Gloria herself, also witty and provocative. From reluctant spokesperson to a beacon of positive change, hers is a singular journey — an American leader who can speak to us all.”

“My Life on the Road” was released in 2015. Steinem’s other books include “Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions,” “Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem,” and “Doing Sixty & Seventy.” Along with Jane Fonda and Robin Morgan, Steinem co-founded the Women’s Media Center, an organization that works towards making women more visible in media. She also co-founded Ms. magazine.

Last year Steinem debuted “Woman with Gloria Steinem.” The weekly Viceland docuseries is hosted by Steinem and highlights the work of a team of all-female journalists reporting stories about women and men who fight against gender-based violence. The first season concluded last June. No word yet on whether “Woman” will receive a second season.

Other upcoming female-led projects about pioneering activists to look forward to include Julie’s Dash’s biopic of civil rights leader Rosa Parks and Brie Larson-starrer “Victoria Woodhull,” a portrait of the first woman to run for president of the United States. Woodhull represented the Equal Rights Party.

Julie Taymor to Adapt Gloria Steinem’s Memoir was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Super Mario Run Gets a Major Update Next Week

24 September 2017 2:19 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. game Super Mario Run is about to get a major update next week that will include new levels, new gameplay, and add Princess Daisy as a playable character. Super Mario Run was the first time that the Nintendo mascot had ventured away from the Nintendo hardware and on to smart phones, starting with the Apple iPhone. The game followed the enormous success of Pok&#233mon Go, which was the first Nintendo game to make it on to the smart phone market and became an instant worldwide sensation that got players off of the couch and into the community to hunt for fictional monsters.

Super Mario Run was met with high anticipation and for the most part, the limited gameplay platform succeeded, but many would-be players balked at the $10 price tag for a game that one could beat in its entirety in a few hours. The game is available for free, »

Trailer Watch: A Native American Woman Takes to the Stage to Tell Her Story in “Te Ata”

19 September 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Te Ata”: The Chickasaw Nation

“What do you have to say?” a professor challenges college student Mary Thompson Fisher aka Te Ata (Q’orianka Kilcher, “The New World”). “What stories do you have to tell? What could you show me that I haven’t seen before?” These questions prompt Te Ata, a member of the Chickasaw Nation, to write and star in a play about the Chickasaw culture and people. And that’s just the beginning.

As a new trailer for Nathan Frankowski’s “Te Ata” hints, the titular character’s college play is the first of many successful turns onstage. She stars on Broadway, tours across the U.S. and even performs for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. However, Te Ata and her family still encounter violence and prejudice, even as her success as an actress and performer grows.

The young woman even faces resistance from her own father (Gil Birmingham, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), who can’t understand why Te Ata is so adamant about leaving home. “I have to go so that I can tell our stories,” she explains.

Te Ata’s journey to find her true calling led her through isolation, discovery, love, and a stage career that culminated in performances for a United States president, European royalty, and audiences across the world,” the film’s official synopsis summarizes. “Yet of all the stories she shared, none are more inspiring than her own.”

Written by Esther Luttrell (“Lithium Springs”), “Te Ata” co-stars Cindy Pickett (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), Brigid Brannagh (“Army Wives”), and Mackenzie Astin (“Scandal”).

Te Ata” will open in Oklahoma theaters on September 29 and hit NY and La October 13 with additional cities to follow. Check out the film’s new trailer and poster below.

‘Woman Walks Ahead’ Review: Jessica Chastain Stars in a Paint-By-Numbers Biopic — Tiff

18 September 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Is a film still considered a “white savior” story if its white protagonist never actually saves anything? In the case of Susanna White’s “Woman Walks Ahead,” it’s certainly not for lack of trying. A listless but lustrously shot biopic about the 19th century New York widow who traveled to North Dakota, painted the Sioux chief Sitting Bull, and then served as an advocate for his tribe as they fought the United States government’s attempts to expropriate their land, the movie almost credits Catherine Weldon as being solely responsible for the Native American resistance to the Dawes Act. Moreover, it also forgives her role in the massacre that followed. On their own, those issues are more frustrating than fatal. As a self-contained story, however, the film suffers enormously from its slippery grasp of history, all of its narrative thrust slipping through the cracks between fact and fiction.

Review: ‘Hostiles’ Is One of the Most Brutal Westerns Ever Made, but Hardly One of the Best — Telluride

3 September 2017 3:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hostiles,” a sturdy and characteristically brutal new Western from “Black Mass” director Scott Cooper, begins with somebody shooting a baby — that’s not a spoiler, just a warning. The year is 1892, and a settler named Rosalee Quaid (Rosamund Pike) is teaching her young daughters about the magical power of adverbs. Suddenly, their New Mexico homestead is raided by a band of Comanche renegades. They murder her husband, they shoot her two girls, and they fire a bullet directly into her infant son; Rosalee carries the lifeless bundle in her arms for days, because it’s that kind of movie — the only kind that Cooper knows how to make.

A few clicks south, Cavalry Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale, broiling with his usual rage) is treating his Cheyenne prisoners with a similar degree of savagery. The point couldn’t be clearer, even though “Hostiles” spends the next 130 minutes underlining it with »

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star (Nintendo Switch) Review

9 August 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I absolutely love Musou/Dynasty Warrior-like games. The pure chaos of the battlefield, coupled with intense, unrelenting action, has always been a way for me to blow off some steam. Viciously destroying hundreds, if not thousands of enemies over and over can do that that for you. In Marvelous and Xseed Games’ newest addition to the Fate series, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, that intense combat and convoluted, (if not stylishly nonsensical) storyline comes to the Nintendo Switch, meaning gamers get a chance to not only experience a solid Musou game on Nintendo’s hot new system, but have fun while doing it.

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star is the third game in the Fate series, but only the second to be released outside of Japan. It originally hit the PlayStation 4 and Vita in January, but has now found a home on the Nintendo Switch. The story follows the aftermath of the Holy Grail War, »

8 August 2017 12:04 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

August can be a miserable time to go to the movies, and it’s almost always a miserable time to be in New York City. But, for at least one glorious weekend this month, neither of those time-honored facts will be true. Beginning on Friday, August 18, Subway Cinema’s Old School Kung Fu Fest returns to The Metrograph theater in lower Manhattan for another incredible weekend of flying courtesans, iconic sword fights, and even a little pistol action for people who like their body-chops and dropkicks with some bullets on the side.

Capping off a female-driven summer movie season that kicked off with “Wonder Woman” back in early June, the seventh edition of this deeply beloved fest is devoted to the “Wonder Women of the Martial Arts,” and it boasts some of the fiercest ladies to ever leap over an unsuspecting henchman.

’24’ Could Return Again — But As An Entirely Different Kind of Show, Fox Execs Say

8 August 2017 11:34 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

If the “24” clock ticks again, it will be for very different reasons.

Fox executives confirmed Tuesday that executive producer Howard Gordon and Imagine TV’s Brian Grazer are kicking around completely new ideas for the real-time format that shifts away from its roots. A new version won’t likely focus on the show’s bread-and-butter terrorism and potential apocalypse storylines.

The decision to rethink the “24” universe comes after Fox opted not to bring back revival “24: Legacy” for another season. “24: Legacy” was pitched as a limited series, but might have continued had ratings been higher.

Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden said “24: Legacy” still succeeded in giving viewers “a taste again” of the “24” franchise, and “whetted their appetites. We’re exploring where the next version might live.”

Walden said Gordon and Grazer “have an exciting idea that was very compelling, but we’re in the early stages.”

Just because you’re a well-established director with award-winning hits and/or commercial successes doesn’t mean you can make any movie you want. Just ask Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Sofia Coppola, Darren Aronofsky, and more. All these auteurs have had passion projects over the years they’ve had to kill or put on indefinite hiatus for a variety of reasons, which is a shame given how incredible all of them sound on paper.

‘Homecoming’ Creator Eli Horowitz on Turning the Hit Podcast Into a TV Show and Starting Over in Season 2

19 July 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

One of things that makes “Homecoming” great is what it can’t show you.

As one of the driving creative forces behind the most popular scripted series in podcasting, Eli Horowitz explains that it took a while to figure out how to make that limitation work to his advantage. Horowitz created “Homecoming” alongside Micah Bloomberg, with whom he also wrote and directs every episode of the series. As the show releases the premiere of its second season on Wednesday, he thinks they’ve finally started to figure out how this world operates.

“In audio, certain things are harder: establishing the setting, establishing who’s talking, giving each scene its own texture,” Horowitz said, in a recent IndieWire interview. “At first those seem like obstacles or limitations: chores you have to do. What we’re starting to get better at is using them as creative prompts. How can set this in »
