Golden Years: David Bowie’s essential movie performances

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

David Bowie.  Thin White Duke, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust, Genius.  The world was shocked by his death, so soon after gifting us with his album, Blackstar.  Released only days ago on his 69th birthday and intended as a parting gift to us all, David Bowie was wonderful, weird, and surprising until the very end.

While there’s no denying the musical talent Bowie brought to generations through his many albums and character incarnations, the film world has also lost a charismatic actor known for some iconic roles.  While Bowie may not have worked steadily as an actor, his roles were carefully chosen and memorable, allowing him to work with some of the most talented directors of the past 40 years.

Whether Bowie is the Goblin King, a beautiful androgynous alien, or the master of the fashion catwalk to you, we look back and celebrate his most iconic performances in film.

Ellen Page: ‘Being out became more important than any movie’

30 January 2016 4:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Oscar-nominated Juno star talks about child stardom, her Vice TV show and why she had to stop living a lie

Within a few minutes of meeting the actor Ellen Page near her Los Angeles home, we’re talking about what she enjoys doing around here, which is going surfing with her girlfriend, artist Samantha Thomas. She likes to watch Thomas, the more experienced surfer, examine the waves. Thomas tells her which way to turn, based on movements in the water that Page can’t even see. “Particularly on days where there are onshore winds, so it’s kind of rough, she’ll say, ‘Oh, a wave’s coming at you, it’s a right, go right’ and I’m just like, ‘What are you looking at? You can read the ocean like that?’ It’s really hot,” she adds, the excitement in her gentle voice suggesting that she is quietly, »

Bruce Dern and Mark Ruffalo: Who’s most overdue for an Oscar now?

26 January 2016 4:03 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

As you all know by now, plenty of folks in the industry can go a whole career without ever winning an Oscar. As such, that makes for a ton of heavyweights in Hollywood who are very overdue for wins. Much like I did last week with people who have never been nominated, I’m going to be citing today ten actors or actresses who have yet to win Oscars but deserve to already have one on their mantle. All of these previous nominees were in contention at some point this year, believe it or not, and many will hopefully be winners within the next few years. Keep in mind that this is just my humble opinion, but take a look below at who I think is most overdue a little gold man… Here now are ten actors/actresses who are overdue for an Academy Award: 10.

Ellen Page on Oscars Diversity Controversy: 'How Could You Not Feel Angry?'

25 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ellen Page says that the Oscars diversity controversy extends far beyond just Hollywood. Joining a host of other industry elites who have issued their opinion about the lack of actors of color being considered for an Academy Award, Page tells People at the Sundance Film Festival that the issue "means a lot to me as an audience member and as a human being." Page, who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar in 2008 for Juno, says that the Academy's sweeping new guidelines, designed to address that lack of diversity among its voting body, are "crucial."

Sundance Film Review: Ellen Page in ‘Tallulah’

23 January 2016 5:03 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ellen Page lands her best starring vehicle since “Juno” in “Tallulah,” a very different story of a young woman coming to terms with the idea of being a mother. The feature-length scripting-directing debut of “Orange Is the New Black” staff writer Sian Heder offers juicy roles not only to Page but also to Allison Janney and Tammy Blanchard, in a strong showcase of female talent both behind and in front of the camera. Netflix acquired Svod rights prior to the pic’s premiere in competition at Sundance, but Heder’s compassionate, audience-friendly dramedy deserves a shot in theaters, too.

Vagabond Tallulah (Page) lives out of her van and drifts from city to city with no ties to anyone or anything, except her boyfriend, Nico (Evan Jonigkeit), and that’s just the way she likes it. When Nico surprises her one night by suggesting they go back to his hometown in »

Tallulah review – Ellen Page and Allison Janney make magic in baby drama

23 January 2016 3:41 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Juno pair reunite for a richly wrought story about two strangers from different backgrounds who come together over a stolen baby

In Juno, Jason Reitman’s infinitely quotable Oscar-winning comedy, Ellen Page and Allison Janney’s scant screen time together proved their strong chemistry playing daughter and stepmother. They’re given more room to explore that connection in Tallulah, Sian Heder’s deeply felt feature writing/directing debut, that finds Janney once again playing a mother figure to Page. But that’s where the similarities between the films end.

Page plays Lu, a free-spirited young woman living the gypsy life with her boyfriend, Nico, out of a van. The film begins with the pair at a crossroads: Lu longs to travel to India, while Nico wants to start a family and reconnect with his estranged mother in New York. When Nico unceremoniously leaves Lu one night, she heads to »

Sundance Preview: Amazon, Netflix Bring Upheaval to Challenging Indie Market

20 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With a week to go before Sundance officially starts, Netflix swooped in to nab global streaming rights to “Tallulah,” a dramatic comedy that reunites “Juno” stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney.

The deal, wrapped up covertly, swiftly and with a big price tag, signifies the dramatic changes roiling the independent film industry.

Consequently, Sundance and other film markets have become a tale of two competing business models, and the story doesn’t always have a happy ending.

“There’s been an insane influx of money,” says Eamonn Bowles, CEO of Magnolia Pictures. “These bidding wars for high-ticket items, where you’re spending lots of money and hoping for a big breakout hit, is one of the worst business strategies. For every ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ there are five instances of ‘Happy, Texas,’ ” he adds. Both films took Sundance by storm, but the former turned into an Oscar-winning hit, and the latter, »

Netflix Picks Up Feature Film Starring Ellen Page, Allison Janney From Sundance

13 January 2016 3:05 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix has a new movie to add to its roster of film titles. A full week before the official Sundance Film Festival, the streaming video platform has already picked up global streaming rights to the indie film Tallulah, starring Juno actresses Ellen Page and Allison Janney.

Directed by Orange Is the New Black writer and producer Sian Heder, Tallulah’s iMDB listing says the film is the story of a dissatisfied Beverly Hills housewife who hires a drifter named Tallulah (Page) to take care of her toddler. But Sundance (where the flick will make its world premiere on January 23, 2016) notes the film is about Tallulah taking the baby to protect it from its negligent mother. This action draws together three very different women, including Janney’s character who mistakenly believes the baby is her grandchild. The dramatic comedy Tallulah also stars Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto, Into the WoodsTammy Blanchard, »

The 100 Best Films of the 21st Century (So Far) - Part 2: #75-51

12 January 2016 5:49 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Our countdown of the 100 best films of the 21st century continues. This is Part 2 #75 through 51.

Click here for Part 1 (#100-76)!

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, including having films gross »

Sundance: Netflix Buys ‘Tallulah’ With Ellen Page, Allison Janney (Exclusive)

12 January 2016 4:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Sundance Film Festival is still a week away, but Netflix isn’t waiting for the throngs to descend on Park City before making a big move.

The streaming giant has snapped up worldwide streaming video on-demand rights to “Tallulah,” Variety has learned. The story of a young drifter (Ellen Page) who takes a baby from a negligent mother was expected to be one of the hot titles at this year’s festival. It reunites Page with her “Juno” co-star Allison Janney.

Janney plays a woman who mistakenly believes she’s the child’s grandmother in what is being billed as a dramatic comedy.

It’s a homecoming of sorts for writer and director Sian Heder. She has a preexisting relationship with Netflix having worked as a writer and producer on “Orange is the New Black.” Her first short film, “Mother,” was honored at Cannes Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival and Florida Film Festival. »
