Diablo Cody: But What I Really Want to Know Is...

21 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Diablo Cody is an Oscar-winning screenwriter, an acclaimed author, and one of the big reasons Twitter is worth tolerating, but we mainly love the "Juno" scribe because she's a great interviewee. On the first episode of HitFix's new interview series But What I Really Want To Know Is..., we caught up with Cody (a.k.a. Brook Maurio) to discuss her least favorite screenwriting cliches, the filming of her next movie "Ricki and the Flash" with Meryl Streep, and the woman who warned her to put her Oscar away for good.  We also play a round of our favorite game called Who's In Your Coven? Pick five living women who represent, for lack of a better term, your "spirit animals." Mine are Jane Fonda, Jane Curtin, Lesley Ann Warren, Lee Grant, and Cynthia Nixon. Who did Diablo Cody pick? Your head will spin.    »

'Fury' Topples 'Girl,' 'Birdman' Soars in Limited Release

19 October 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Brad Pitt's Fury was able to usurp first place from Gone Girl this weekend, though it was a closer race than anticipated.Meanwhile, Birdman opened at four locations in New York and Los Angeles and scored one of the best per-theater averages ever for a live-action movie.Opening at 3,173 theaters, Fury rolled in to first place this weekend with $23.7 million. This debut is in the same general ballpark as movies like Captain Phillips ($25.7 million), Act of Valor ($24.5 million) and The Monuments Men ($22 million). That's a fine range to be in, though it's a bit disappointing considering how far off it is from recent R-rated thrillers Gone Girl ($37.5 million) and The Equalizer ($34.1 million).Sony's marketing played up Fury's intense tank-on-tank action, which made it a strong option among male moviegoers. Unfortunately, the movie never really connected with women, who wound up accounting for just 40 percent of the audience on opening weekend. »

Jason Reitman Will Never Stop Swinging

17 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Jason Reitman is a hard filmmaker to pin down. He’s made six features, and when a director has made that many films, it’s usually not terribly difficult to find themes or ideas that tie a filmography together. Besides generally following smart but naive characters, you can’t really do that with Reitman’s pictures. The element that comes closest to defining Reitman’s body of work is his passion for self-reflective stories. After his past two divisive efforts, Labor Day and Men, Women & Children, it’s obvious his voice and interests go beyond one story or one specific idea. What’s missing from those films, for starters, is Reitman’s comedic wit. That’s not to say they don’t have his sense of humor, albeit in much smaller doses, but they wear a more serious face than his earlier work. Critics certainly aren’t used to this side of Reitman. “It »

Review: Men, Women & Children

17 October 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

A better title for Men, Women & Children might be The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Internet. Another might be The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Movie.

I had hoped Jason Reitman's latest film would be up to the lofty standards of his best work, Juno and Up in the Air. But what could have been an insightful look at how the Internet has shaped our lives is instead a slight, heavy-handed and melodramatic cautionary tale about the dangers (at least from the film's point of view) that lurk online.

Shot in Austin, Men, Women & Children follows a group of teens and adults whose online activities land them in a heap of trouble. Among them are a mostly happy couple, Helen (Rosemarie DeWitt) and Don Truby (Adam Sandler), who let their sexual boredom get the better of them; Helen finds extramarital action thanks to hookup site Ashley Madison, »

Forecast (cont.): 'The Best of Me,' 'Men, Women & Children,' 'Birdman'

16 October 2014 3:55 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

<< Continued from "Weekend Forecast"Opening at 2,936 theaters, The Best of Me is the ninth Nicholas Sparks adaptation to hit the big screen. Sparks adaptations have been fairly consistent*the last four movies opened between $16 million and $30.5 million. However, the highest-grossing entry remains 2004's The Notebook, which ended its run with just north of $81 million.The Best of Me seems to fit nicely in to the Sparks playbook. It's a romance (of course), and posters feature essentially the same image (two lovers touching faces) as virtually every other Sparks movie poster.There's reason to believe that The Best of Me may fall a bit short of the standard Sparks range, though. James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan are respected actors, but don't necessarily fit in to the genre as naturally as Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough (of last year's Safe Haven). Also, the movie's split timeline has been hard to pin down »

Oscar Frontrunner J.K. Simmons on His Fearsome Whiplash Character

13 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

J.K. Simmons has spent the last 20 years as one of Hollywood's most in-demand character actors, making an outsize impression in films like Spider-Man and Juno and on TV shows including Oz, Law & Order, and The Closer, but his role in the acclaimed new film Whiplash may be the juiciest of his career — and, if the pundits' early predictions are borne out, it could earn him an Oscar. In the Damien Chazelle–directed music drama, Simmons plays the tyrannical Fletcher, an epithet-spitting, frequently screaming music instructor who zeroes in on Andrew Nieman (Miles Teller), a jazz-drumming student who becomes both Fletcher's pet project and punching bag. It's one of the scariest performances of the year, and among the most fascinating, too: Chazelle and Simmons reveal just enough of Fletcher to suggest even more, and earlier this month, Simmons sat down with Vulture in Los Angeles to discuss some of »

Adam Sandler and 'Men, Women & Children' cast reunite for 'American Beauty' live-read

13 October 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

By the end of its theatrical run, Jason Reitman's Internet drama "Men, Women & Children" will likely amount to the director's least financially successful picture. No, not every film can click with the zeitgeist like "Juno" and haul in $143.5 million. But when Reitman's Kate Winslet-Josh Brolin drama "Labor Day" tapped out at $13.4 million this past winter, analysts considered it a disappointment. This weekend's specialty box office reports pin "Men, Women & Children" just under $128,500 after its second weekend — something beyond mere disappointment for Reitman and Paramount Pictures. The silver lining: With "Men, Women & Children," Reitman found actors that ignite him and perhaps vice versa. The door for future collaborations appears to remain open, with the first already in motion. As part of his on-going live-read series with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Reitman is set to direct a staged reading of Alan Ball's Academy Award-winning script "American Beauty. »

Men, Women & Children review: Jason Reitman fumbles digital drama

12 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jason Reitman; Screenwriter: Jason Reitman, Erin Cressida Wilson; Starring: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner, Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer, Ansel Elgort, Kaitlyn Dever; Running time: 120 mins; Certificate: 15

Sex and other intimacy issues are ripe for re-examination in the age of social media, and writer/director Jason Reitman gives the subject epic treatment in Men, Women & Children. Adam Sandler does his serious face in one of multiple strands and he's fairly convincing. Unfortunately, Reitman and co-writer Erin Cressida Wilson (adapting Chad Kultgen's novel) fumble through the plot like groping teenagers.

With its loosely interwoven stories, the structure represents the most complicated aspect of the film, otherwise the individual threads lead to numbingly obvious points about the way we relate to each other in the modern world.

Opening the action with images of space and clipped, cutting narration by Emma Thompson is the first (worrying) sign that Reitman is aiming for profundity. »

Casting Net: Joaquim de Almeida and Zoe Kazan join Sandra Bullock in 'Our Brand Is Crisis;' more

10 October 2014 5:59 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Joaquim de Almeida (Fast Five) has signed on to play the male lead opposite Sandra Bullock in David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis. Zoe Kazan (What If) has also signed on for the political dramedy. In addition to Bullock, they’re joining Scoot McNairy, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie, and Ann Dowd. The film is based on Rachel Boynton’s 2005 documentary of the same name, which explored American political campaign strategies in Bolivia. Green’s film stars Bullock as “Calamity” Jane Bodine, a retired American political consultant, with de Almeida as Castillo, the former president of Bolivia who is running for office again. »

Jennifer Garner on that other movie she's also in: 'Men, Women & Children'

10 October 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Chances are Jennifer Garner realized early on that the two films she was starring in this fall would appeal to two very different audiences. What she probably didn't expect was that the Disney family film "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" would be the one that would have the bigger impact on her career, especially considering her other movie, "Men, Women & Children," features an ensemble cast with talent such as Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer and up-and-comer Ansel Elgort. Oh, and did we mention that movie is directed by four-time Oscar nominee Jason Reitman, who she previously collaborated with on Best Picture nominee "Juno?" Yes, sometimes life has a way of throwing expectations completely out the window. "Alexander" is currently headed toward a $20 million-plus weekend at the box office. "Men, Women & Children," on the other hand, opened in 17 theaters last weekend with a tepid $47,553 for »

‘Stanford Prison Experiment’ Adds Olivia Thirlby, ‘True Blood’s Nelsan Ellis, More

10 October 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Olivia Thirlby (Juno, Dredd) and Nelsan Ellis (True Blood) have joined the ensemble cast of The Stanford Prison Experiment, about the infamous 1971 psychological exercise in which college students exhibited shocking cruel and sadistic behavior when divided into camps of prisoners and prison guards.

Helmed by Kyle Alvarez (C.O.G.), the Tim Talbott-scripted film stars Ezra Miller, Michael Angarano, and Billy Crudup as Dr. Philip Zimbardo, the Stanford professor who would later write the book on the psychology of good and evil behavior. Thirlby will play Christina Zimbardo, Professor Zimbardo’s wife and fellow academic. She’s currently starring in O.P.C. at the American Repertory Theater with Melissa Leo and next appears onscreen in The Wedding Ringer in January. Ellis, who had a beloved run as Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s True Blood, will play Jesse Fletcher in Stanford. He appeared as Martin Luther King, Jr. in Lee Daniels »

‘Whiplash’ Villain J.K. Simmons: ‘I Have No Illusions About Being a Movie Star’

10 October 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

J.K. Simmons has been in hundreds of films and TV shows over a flourishing two-decade year career as a character actor, but he's rarely been able to sink his teeth into a part as juicy as the one he has in Damien Chazelle's “Whiplash.” Playing a brutal music teacher in the Sundance hit, the guy who might be best known as a neo-Nazi skinhead convict in the HBO series “Oz,” Juno's dad in Jason Reitman‘s “Juno” and Peter Parker's editor in Sam Raimi‘s “Spider-Man” movies has put himself in unexpected company: among the leaders in this year's Best Supporting. »

J.K. Simmons: The friendly face behind this year's scariest movie villain

10 October 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

"I remember when I first met J.K. Simmons, I just sort of told him, 'Remember how you were in Oz? I want to make that guy look like the teacher in Mr. Holland’s Opus." —Whiplash director Damien Chazelle Terence Fletcher, the intimidating music teacher in Whiplash, isn't a sadistic member of the Aryan Brotherhood, like Oz's Vern Schillinger. But for Miles Teller's high-school drum prodigy, Fletcher is practically evil incarnate, a bully whose primary methods of motivation are tossing chairs and playing cruel psychological mind games. He wants his school's jazz ensemble to be the best in the country, »

Jennifer Garner Admits Her Ambition Has Changed Since Starting a Family

9 October 2014 2:03 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Jennifer Garner provides some insight into her family life with Ben Affleck.

Jennifer Garner, Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Banks, Tina Fey and more cover Elle's 21st annual Women in Hollywood issue, in which the actresses get candid on everything from their career goals to where their confidence comes from.

In particular, Garner, 42, admits that her smaller, more indie roles in films since starting a family with Ben Affleck are no coincidence.

News: Jennifer Garner on Ben Affleck's 'Batman' Bod: 'It Feels Like I'm Having an Affair'

"My ambition shifted when I had kids in a way that I didn't anticipate," the Juno actress says. "I became more ambitious for my life as a whole, and for that kind of health and happiness of the overall family unit. And that very much includes my husband and very much includes me."

But if you think Affleck is the one telling her to stay at home to watch their three kids »

Jason Reitman Reveals the Filthiest Thing He Made Emma Thompson Say

9 October 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you've seen one of Jason Reitman's movies, you know that he's very willing to go to some very extreme and, at times, uncomfortable places. From the cigarette industry ("Thank You for Smoking") to teen pregnancy ("Juno") to arrested development ("Young Adult," still his very best and most complicated film), there's a fearlessness with which he treats his subject matter that is positively intoxicating.

His new film, "Men, Women & Children," which expands nationwide this week, is centered around our relationship with technology (and how that relationship can mess with our interpersonal lives). It stars Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, Judy Greer, Jennifer Garner and Dean Norris, and takes a kind of "Traffic"-like structural approach, showing characters crisscrossing into each others lives (and, of course, web browsers).

Jason Reitman Talks 'Men, Women & Children,' A "Nervous" Adam Sandler & Being Misquoted About 'Labor Day'

7 October 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Jason Reitman is keenly aware of what makes audiences squirm. This is a director who has tackled the cigarette industry ("Thank You For Smoking"), teen pregnancy ("Juno"), the recession ("Up in the Air") and what happens when gruff escaped convicts break into a family's home and make pies in the sensual manner of the pottery scene from "Ghost" ("Labor Day"). His newest film, "Men, Women & Children," which opens wider release this week, continues in this vein, with its frank depiction of the ways in which the internet intersects with our own sexuality. Similarly, Reitman was willing to address pretty much anything in an interview with the Playlist. He talked about the disappointing reception for "Labor Day," what it was like to cowrite his current movie with another writer, and how involved he was with the festival darling "Whiplash" (he has an executive producer credit). It's refreshing to ask »

You Don’t Have To Like Jazz To Be Entranced by Whiplash

7 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

One of the buzziest films of the year is Whiplash, starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons, who go head-to-head in a story about a young jazz drummer and his ruthless instructor. The film takes off from its opening scene, building both the tempo and tension for much of its 106 minutes before leaving audiences stunned by the pair’s relentless nature.

Whiplash first wowed Sundance audiences back in January, and the film is finally opening in theaters nationwide on Oct. 10. Before you head out, we’re breaking down the most important elements so you know exactly what you’re getting into.

The film was blacklisted

In 2012, Damien Chazelle’s screenplay was featured on film executive Franklin Leonard’s annual round up of unproduced scripts. The Black List, which was created in 2004, has been responsible for catapulting several stories to the screen big. Some of the biggest films to come out of the list are American Hustle, »

'Whiplash's' J.K. Simmons Nearly Lost His Voice From Screaming at Miles Teller

7 October 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

J.K. Simmons has played some incredibly intimidating characters, most notably a sadistic neo-Nazi in HBO's "Oz," and Tobey Maguire's bullying editor in the "Spider-Man" films. You can add his demanding brute of a music teacher in the new movie "Whiplash" to that list.

The actor, whose other films include "Juno," "Up in the Air," and "I Love You, Man," is generating serious Oscar talk for his performance as Terence Fletcher, a renowned jazz instructor whose teaching methods are beyond brutal.

Simmons sat down with Moviefone to talk about nearly losing his voice from screaming so much at Miles Teller (who plays the drummer he takes under his wing), his own extensive music background and why he's so good at being so bad.

You haven't played a character this brutal since "Oz."

I probably haven't.

Was it fun to get in Miles Teller's face and scream at him?

Super fun. »

Oscar Watch: ‘Who’s Up?’ And ‘Who’s Down?’ As Past Academy Favorites David Fincher, Paul Thomas Anderson and Jason Reitman Debut New Films

5 October 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Some publications just love doing the old ‘Who’s Up, Who’s Down’ thing on a weekly basis all season long. Yawn. Let me tell you “Who’s Up.” It’s every filmmaker who can get any kind of movie made these days that is not cookie-cutter stuff ordered straight out of a studio development meeting.  And “Who’s Down“?  That’s all the filmmakers whose ambitious projects have been shot to pieces by clueless executives and are still looking for a way to get them made and financed.

I am not going to get into the weekly game of creating this kind of Oscar meter measure except this once. Indulge me because this weekend held a number of interesting turns of events for some of Oscar’s current favorite directors. And it says a lot about the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ of this business and the fickle way Oscar winds blow. »

5 Things We Learned About 'Men, Women & Children' From Jason Reitman

2 October 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

According to Jason Reitman, his new film "Men, Women & Children" is about the Internet as much as "Juno" was about teen pregnancy, or "Thank You For Smoking" was about cigarettes; really, he's interested in exploring people, not timely issues.

Adapted from Chad Kultgen's 2011 novel, the movie follows a group of Texas high schoolers and their parents, focusing on the many ways the Internet has changed how we interact with each other. And despite our myriad of devices, ultimately, "Men, Women & Children" is about all the ways we're seemingly unable to communicate with one another.

Fortunately though, Reitman and "Men, Women & Children" star Jennifer Garner were much more forthcoming at a recent press conference held during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. Here are five things we learned from the two about the Internet-age ensemble drama.
