Oscar Hopeful Trailers Galore

26 August 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. As the upcoming fall festival and Oscar season looms, get ready for a steady stream of incoming footage for this year's hopefuls to start cropping up in the coming weeks. Today we have some peeks at a few weepies ready to work your tear ducts on their path to awards: Manchester By The Sea, A United Kingdom, and Lion. Take a look at the trailers (and a few quick thoughts) below:

Manchester By The Sea

Kenneth Lonergan is definitely returning to You Can Count On Me territory after the intellectual meanderings of Margaret, with already raved about results.

• Isn't Kyle Chandler in this? Obviously new star Lucas Hedges will be the supporting Oscar play here, but when will the always strong Chandler finally get his due?

• I've read Michelle Williams performance compared to Beatrice Straight in Network several times. Looks like we'll have a brief spellbinder of a performance. »

Casey Affleck And Michelle Williams Star In First Trailer For Manchester By The Sea

24 August 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for director Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester By The Sea.

Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions will release the film in theaters November 18, 2016.

In Manchester By The Sea, the latest film from award-winning writer and director Kenneth Lonergan, the life of a solitary Boston janitor is transformed when he returns to his hometown to take care of his teenage nephew.

The story of the Chandlers, a working-class family living in a Massachusetts fishing village for generations, Manchester By The Sea is a deeply poignant, unexpectedly funny exploration of the power of familial love, community, sacrifice and hope.

After the death of his older brother Joe (Kyle Chandler), Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck) is shocked to learn that Joe has made him sole guardian of his nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Taking leave of his job, Lee reluctantly returns to Manchester-by-the-Sea to care for Patrick, a spirited 15-year-old, »

First 'Manchester By the Sea' Trailer Easily Sells Why Sundance Loved This Movie

24 August 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Sundance Film Festival is a launching point for so many of the finest films of any given year. Even still, it's rare that everyone at Sundance buzzing about movie does so in total agreement. There always seems to be a group of detractors eager to shout down a movie if it's getting a little too much praise. This year, however, it seemed like every single film lover at Sundance was in agreement about one thing: Manchester by the Sea is incredible. Written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan (Margaret, You Can Count On Me), Manchester by the Sea stars Casey Affleck as a guy whose simple life is uprooted when his brother dies and he has to head back home and be the guardian to his teenaged nephew. The 'person who moves back home after a tragedy' plot may seem...

Casey Affleck Faces Rejection in ‘Manchester by the Sea’ Trailer

24 August 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not smooth sailing for Casey Affleck in the first trailer for “Manchester by the Sea,” dealing with his 16-year-old nephew’s rejection in the wake of his father’s death.

“You don’t want to be my guardian, that’s fine with me,” Lucas Hedges, who plays the spirited teen, tells Affleck’s character Lee Chandler.

The premise is that the beloved late brother (portrayed by Kyle Chandler) has made Affleck sole guardian of his nephew. Chandler is also forced to deal with a past that separated him from his now-estranged wife — played by Michelle Williams — and the community where he was born and raised.

Manchester by the Sea” is Kenneth Lonergan’s third feature after “You Can Count on Me” and “Margaret.” It will screen at next month’s Toronto Film Festival in the Special Presentations section.

The family drama debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, »

First Trailer For Manchester By The Sea Arrives

24 August 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kenneth Lonergan is perhaps one of the most highly respected writer-directors working today – and yet his cinematic output is less than prolific. While he has penned a number of screenplays, the upcoming Manchester By The Sea is only his third time at the helm, after 2000’s You Can Count On Me and 2011’s Margaret. Arguably, a lot of that will be connected to the protracted legal battles that surrounded the edit and release of his second film – originally scheduled for release in 2007 – but thankfully, no such drama engulfed Manchester By The Sea.

The premise is simple – a man is faced with the task of caring for his teenage nephew after the death of his older brother – but being a Kenneth Lonergan film, we get much more than that. Using this sparse thread, the filmmaker weaves a rich tale that contemplates life, death, and everything in between, in a movie that »

Casey Affleck Seeks Oscar Gold in ‘Manchester by the Sea’

24 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Based on its trailer, audiences should believe the buzz surrounding “Manchester by the Sea.” The latest feature film and Sundance hit from writer-director Kenneth Lonergan (“Margaret,” “You Can Count On Me”) has been on many critics’ early acting nominations shortlists for Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams. It would mark the second and fourth Academy Award nominations for each actor, respectively. It’s the story of Lee Chandler (Affleck) who unexpectedly loses his brother, Joe (played by “Bloodline” Emmy nominee Kyle Chandler) and is made legal guardian of his nephew, Patrick (Lucas Hedges). Lee then moves back to his seaside hometown of North Shore to begrudgingly watch after Patrick, mourn the loss of his brother, and reconcile with his estranged wife, Randi (Williams). After its successful run at Sundance, the film will be distributed by Roadside Attractions and Amazon Studios, and is set to premiere at the height of awards season on Nov. »

Casey Affleck & Michelle Williams Star In The First Trailer For Kenneth Lonergan’s ‘Manchester By The Sea’

24 August 2016 8:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The productions of Kenneth Lonergan films are often tortured. 2011’s “Margaret” began shooting in 2005, but Lonergan’s lengthy and over-schedule post-production sparked multiple lawsuits and the film landed in limbo for about five years (its original release date was in 2007). And thus in fifteen years, there’s only been two Lonergan films. Trouble seemed to […]

‘Manchester By The Sea’ Trailer: Discover Why Kenneth Lonergan’s Acclaimed Indie Is A Major Oscar Frontrunner

24 August 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s perhaps no film coming out this fall that carries as much acclaim as Kenneth Lonergan’s “Manchester By The Sea.” The most universally adored drama to come out of the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the heart-rendering family drama earned one rave after the other, ultimately selling to Amazon for a huge $10 million. Oscar buzz pretty much skyrocketed the minute the first screening ended back in January, and now everyone can see what the acclaim is about in the powerful debut trailer.

First Trailer for Kenneth Lonergan’s ‘Manchester By the Sea’ Finds Casey Affleck Returning Home

24 August 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There may have been no title at this year’s Sundance Film Festival that earned quite as much love as Kenneth Lonergan‘s Manchester By the Sea, his follow-up to the bewilderingly good You Can Count on Me and Margaret — and, no less, only his third film since 2000. Fortunately, there won’t be (as has been the case with this writer-director) a several-years-long wait between production and release: Amazon Studios/Roadside Attractions are releasing Manchester in less than three months’ time. Lo and behold, grief and acrimony have thus been condensed into the form of a trailer.

Manchester sounds as if it’s worth the wait we’ve endured and the filmography into which it’s been placed, though the thing might not be an easy sit. As we said in our review, Lonergan’s picture is “a collection of moments both micro and macro, essential and seemingly superfluous, yet »

Mulholland Drive Tops BBC's 100 Best Movies of the 21st Century List

23 August 2016 12:21 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The modern movie landscape can make some people feel like the best days of film are behind us. With remakes, reboots and adaptations very abundant, and original movies seemingly not raking it in at the box office, that is an understandable sentiment. But the BBC felt like there are a lot of recent movies worth celebrating, and that is why they set out to make a list of the 100 greatest movies of the 21st century. The list they came up with is nothing if not interesting, and it is definitely a reminder that there are a lot of great movies that have been made in the last 16 years.

BBC published the list on Tuesday morning, after taking months to put it all together. In order to come up with this list, they used nearly 200 critics from both print and online publications, as well as academics and curators. The contributors that were used spanned the globe, »

The 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century: BBC Polls Critics From Around The Globe

23 August 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Last year, the BBC polled a bunch of critics to determine the 100 greatest American films of all time and only six films released after 2000 placed at all. This year, the BBC decided to determine the “new classics,” films from the past 16 years that will likely stand the test of time, so they polled critics from around the globe for their picks of the 100 greatest films of the 21st Century so far. David Lynch’s “Mulholland Dr.” tops the list, Wong Kar-Wai’s “In The Mood For Love” places second, and Paul Thomas Anderson and the Coen Brothers both have 2 films in the top 25. See the full results below.

Mullholland Drive tops critics' list of best 21st century films

23 August 2016 2:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 23, 2016

A critics' survey puts Mullholland Drive at the top of the list of the best films since 2000. Did yours make the cut?

Movie critics love Linklater, Studio Ghibli, the Coens and the surrealist stylings of David Lynch. At least, that's if a newly-published list of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century is anything to go by.

BBC Culture commissioned the poll, which took in responses from 177 film critics from all over the world. As a result, the top 100 includes an eclectic mix of the mainstream to independent movies, from dramas to sci-fi and off-beat comedies. Feew would be surprised to see things like Paolo Sorrentino's handsome Italian confection The Great Beauty propping up the lower end of the list, or that such acclaimed directors as Wes Anderson or the aforementioned Coens feature heavily. 

What is pleasing to see, though, is how much good genre stuff has made the cut, »

The 21st Century’s 100 Greatest Films, According to Critics

22 August 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although we’re only about 16% into the 21st century thus far, the thousands of films that have been released have provided a worthy selection to reflect on the cinematic offerings as they stand. We’ve chimed in with our favorite animations, comedies, sci-fi films, and have more to come, and now a new critics’ poll that we’ve taken part in has tallied up the 21st century’s 100 greatest films overall.

The BBC has polled 177 critics from around the world, resulting in a variety of selections, led by David Lynch‘s Mulholland Drive. Also in the top 10 was Wong Kar-wai‘s In the Mood For Love and Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life, which made my personal ballot (seen at the bottom of the page).

In terms of the years with the most selections, 2012 and 2013 each had 9, while Wes Anderson, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Christopher Nolan, the Coens, Michael Haneke, and »

Review: 'The Night Of' gets to know Jack Stone in 'Subtle Beast'

17 July 2016 7:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's The Night Of coming up just as soon as this blog is like Jeopardy... "The truth can go to hell, because it doesn't help you." -Jack Where last week's premiere understandably spent most of its time on Naz, "Subtle Beast" more evenly splits things between lawyer and client, allowing us to really get to know the man who's going to try to keep Naz from going to prison for the rest of his life. It's a simultaneously funny and poignant running gag throughout the episode that everyone Jack encounters — cops, lawyers, judges, even his ex-wife — instantly recognizes that he must have stumbled into a case this big, even as they all seem to be rooting for him. Whatever ambition he may have once had in life has long since given way to his life as a bottom-feeder, handing out "No Fee Till You're Free" business cards »
