IndieWire Fall Film Festival Wish List: The 56 Movies We Want to See Most

24 July 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Dunkirk” aside, deep summer looks like a fallow season for major films — but appearances are deceiving. This is perhaps their most-essential moment on the movie calendar, as it’s when distributors huddle, haggle, and negotiate to determine which movies will head for the almighty awards-season launch festivals of Venice, Telluride, Toronto, and New York.

From the festivals’ perspectives, they’re vying for the starriest red-carpet gala world premieres. (The exception is Telluride, which doesn’t have to vie; it gets to cherry pick its impeccably curated four-day Labor Day Weekend selection in secret.) Ahead of next week’s rollout of announcements, we called around for intel on what we can expect to see.

The Kingsman Sequel Is About to Blow the First Film Out of the Water

20 July 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Back in 2014, Kingsman: The Secret Service blazed into theaters and became a surprise smash hit. With the introduction of the dashing Taron Egerton and the undeniable bravado of Colin Firth, it should really have come as no surprise. On the same token, it should also come as no surprise that there's a sequel on the horizon. Called Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the follow-up film looks pretty epic. The new red band trailer teases even more action and gives us another look at the return of Colin Firth. During a recent press presentation in London, I saw the entire first act of the film. That's 40 minutes of footage! Sit down, children, it's time to tell you what I know. 1. Taron Egerton Looks as Handsome as Ever This one's kind of a no-brainer, but still bears mentioning. Taron Egerton is back to his hunky ways. In the newest trailer, he's dressing like a proper gentleman, »

How Lily Tomlin and Gloria Steinem Helped Fund the Lesbian Film Classic ‘Desert Hearts’

20 July 2017 11:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the early ’80s, Donna Deitch was a recent film school grad with no feature credits looking make a lesbian romance — one that didn’t end with killing its heroines. Without the help of Kickstarter or industry backing, she launched an unorthodox grassroots campaign that eventually gained the support of Gloria Steinem, Lily Tomlin, and Stockard Channing. The result was a hit at Sundance in 1986 that went on to become a groundbreaking lesbian classic that still resonates today.

Adapted by Natalie Cooper from the 1964 Jane Rule novel “Desert of the Heart,” Deitch’s 1985 film is a poignant romance set in 1959, when straitlaced Columbia professor Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver) arrives at a ranch in Reno, Nev. to get a divorce (the only place one could at that time). She meets the rancher’s daughter, Cay Rivvers (Patricia Charbonneau), an open and self-assured lesbian, »

‘Desert Hearts’ Trailer: Donna Deitch’s Groundbreaking Lesbian Classic Restored — Watch

14 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Set in 1959 and released in 1986, “Desert Hearts” is utterly timeless. Not only was Donna Deitch’s groundbreaking film directed and produced by a woman, but it was the first film to show two women have a romance onscreen that didn’t result in their deaths. A little over thirty years since its Sundance debut, Deitch’s classic is getting a beautiful 4k restoration and anniversary theatrical run — complete with this brand new trailer and poster.

Adapted from a novel by Jane Rule, “Desert Hearts” chronicles straitlaced English professor Vivian Bell (Helen Shaver) who arrives in Reno to finalize her divorce. Hoping for a little peace and quiet, her world is turned upside down by the firecracker Cay Rivvers (Patricia Charbonneau). Ten years younger and not afraid to go after what she wants, Cay’s blows the lid off of Vivian’s carefully cultivated world at full speed.

Attention, Filmmakers: Here’s How You Can Direct Shots Like Paul Thomas Anderson — Watch

12 July 2017 7:29 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What makes a Paul Thomas Anderson shot feel so unique? That’s the question at the center of a new video essay from StudioBinder that analyzes the director’s most iconic images and teaches aspiring filmmakers how they can approach shot-buiding from a similar perspective.

Anderson has made eight features in his two decades as a director, including the upcoming fashion drama with Daniel Day-Lewis, and when looking at his filmography in chronological order one can easily see the evolution of his style and personal filmmaking voice. His early days were marked by his greatest influences — Jonathan Demme and his intimate closeups, Martin Scorsese and his tracking shots — and Anderson’s style has become defined by the way he has taken these touchstones and made them his own.

Class of 1987: Return To Horror High Still Earns a Passing Grade with Gore, Humor & Infectious Fun

10 July 2017 2:39 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Imagine the following sentence in the “'80s horror trailer guy” voice. In 1982, a killer haunted the halls of Crippen High School, giving it the moniker “Horror High.” Now, in 1987, a movie crew returns to Horror High and may or may not survive retelling the story of these heinous crimes. There will be blood! Lots and lots of blood!

It's been a very long time since I've seen Bill Froehlich's Return to Horror High, starring Brendan Hughes, Scott Jacoby, George Clooney, Maureen McCormick, Lori Lethin, Alex Rocco, Vince Edwards, Al Fann, and Panchito Gómez. So, I was absolutely delighted to get the chance to re-watch this glorious horror comedy and discuss it with our readers as part of our celebration of the Class of 1987.

After decades of horror films that were wonderfully serious, a tonal shift started happening in the 1980s, and by the mid-'80s, horror comedies had really gained momentum, »

Who are the contemporary Masters of Cinema?

Anghus Houvouras on the contemporary Masters of Cinema…

Sometimes a good movie conversation can lead you to interesting places. Take the discussion around the wildly overpraised Baby Driver; a good movie that’s being called a ‘masterpiece’ (it’s not). During the discussion my friend Simon Columb posted this on Twitter:

Edgar Wright ain't no "master". Bloomin' eck pic.twitter.com/4HJzn2sS8X

— Simon Columb (@screeninsight) July 2, 2017

I love Edgar Wright. I’ve watched the entire catalog of his work many, many times. Hell, I’ve watched the two series of Spaced At Least a dozen times. The man has an amazing sense of style and kinetic storytelling that feels uniquely his own. But even with a gun to my head I would not list him among the modern contemporary masters of cinema (even one that shoots cars). But, thanks to that hyperbolic burst of circle-jerk fandom, a thought came to mind? »

Midway Oscars Forecast: A Cluttered Landscape for Indies and Streamers

29 June 2017 4:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was barely four months ago that director Barry Jenkins stood alongside the baffled cast and crew of “Moonlight” at the Dolby Theatre after defying virtually every known Oscar convention in spectacular, immortal fashion. But just eight short weeks from now, the season will purr right back to life at the Venice and Telluride film festivals. Hollywood will set its sights on that coveted gold statuette for the 90th time, and a new flock of prestige productions will vie for the industry’s top honor.

New York-based distributor A24’s victory brought the best picture tally for independents (and studio dependents) up to nine over the past decade. The only major studio to score in that stretch was Warner Bros. with “Argo,” as the game of Oscar continues to be one of bolstering the financial outlook of artistic risks that conglomerate-tethered companies feel they can’t afford.

Why Paul Thomas Anderson Didn’t Hire a Cinematographer For His New Movie

29 June 2017 7:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Focus Features announced in February that production began in the U.K. on Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film, one notable role wasn’t on the production’s creative roster: director of photography. It’s not unusual for Anderson’s movies to be shrouded in secrecy, with crew members required to sign non-disclosure agreements, but in this case the answer hid in plain sight: Anderson worked as his own Dp.

What will be Daniel Day-Lewis’ last movie was known as “Phantom Thread” during production, but that will not be the title when the film hits theaters Christmas Day, IndieWire has learned. Written and directed by Anderson, the movie set in 1950s London stars Day-Lewis as a dressmaker commissioned by royalty and high society.

The Unbearable Rightness of Daniel Day-Lewis Retiring (Even if He Doesn’t Keep to It)

25 June 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Daniel Day-Lewis, the greatest screen actor of his generation, announced this week that he would be retiring from acting, I had the same initial thought that, I assume, most everyone else did. After a few befuddled seconds of “Why?” I prayed that his announcement wasn’t the euphemism for a health crisis. Once I decided that it probably wasn’t (this is, after all, the actor who took an open-ended sabbatical to build furniture), a conviction began to settle over me. While I had no clear idea why an artist as passionate and celebrated as Daniel Day-Lewis would want to cut his ties to acting (I was going to add “when he’s at the top of his game,” though when has Daniel Day-Lewis not been at the top of his game?), every bone in my body told me that he’d be back. At some point. In some eccentric Daniel Day-Lewis fashion. He »

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the Han Solo prequel, Daniel Day-Lewis and more make our weekly movie news!

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the Han Solo prequel, Daniel Day-Lewis and more make our weekly movie news!Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the Han Solo prequel, Daniel Day-Lewis and more make our weekly movie news!Adriana Floridia6/23/2017 12:05:00 Pm

There was lots of exciting and controversial movie news that dropped this week. Take a look at some of the highlights below!

Jurassic Park fans only have to wait exactly one year until the next installment in the revived franchise is released. On June 22nd, 2018, we're getting Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which will bring back new stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, along with that always familiar face, Jeff Goldblum. We still don't know too much about the sequel, but we can enjoy this ever-nostalgic teaser poster in the meantime.

Just a couple of days ago we learned that the Han Solo film lost its directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller due to creative differences, but the film wasn't an orphan for too long. Ron Howard's name was the first to be thrown around upon this news, and today it has been confirmed that he will indeed take over the project. It's a sensible move, as Howard has a longstanding relationship with Star Wars, as he was originally tipped to direct The Phantom Menace. The film starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo is slated for release on May 25th, 2018.

We have the new trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal as one of the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing back in 2013. It's the true story of how Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) helped the police track down the killers, while recovering from the trauma himself. Check out the trailer below!

His story captured our attention. His strength captured our hearts. Jake Gyllenhaal is Boston Marathon bombing survivor in #StrongerMovie. pic.twitter.com/HLtCkVhGFn

Stronger (@StrongerTheFilm) June 22, 2017

Xavier Dolan and Jessica Chastain fans alike can rejoice, as we have our first teaser poster for his first English-language film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan. The film tells the story of the written correspondence between a famous television star and a young actor, and the impact it had on both of their lives. It looks like Jessica Chastain's character is "up to no good" to quote Dolan, as she plays a sneaky journalist in the film. Check out the poster below!

This week, we heard that legendary method actor Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from acting. The There Will Be Blood star has three Oscars and an almost unparalleled filmography. He's widely considered one of our best actors of all time, which is why most have been devastated by this news. While we're hoping Daniel changes his mind at some point in the future, we can at least look forward to seeing him in what will apparently be his last role, as a fashion designer in Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread, due out later this year. 

This week we got to feast our eyes on more footage from the Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049. If what you saw in the trailer blew your mind, there are even more visuals to marvel over in the video below. Blade Runner 2049 sees Ryan Gosling as a new blade runner named K who discovers a long-kept secret that could plunge society into chaos. This leads him to finding Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for almost thirty years. Check it out below!

We can't get over this photo sent out by Robert Downey Jr. on the set of Avengers: Infinity War, that has Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Wong and The Hulk sharing a meal. It also gives us a little glimpse at some new costumes, and is obviously getting us super pumped for the new film.

Thank You for Your Service debuted its first trailer and poster this week! Jason Hall, who wrote the screenplay for American Sniper, makes his directorial debut with this one and also serves as its screenwriter. The movie gives an in-depth look at how Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects American servicemen and women returning home from war. It stars Miles Teller, Haley Bennett, Amy Schumer, and Joe Cole. This looks like a powerful movie and we expect some Oscar buzz around this one. Check out the trailer below and see Thank You for Your Service in Cineplex theatres on October 27th!

A new trailer and poster for American Assassin dropped and this looks like an unbelievable ride. This one follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence, leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East. Check out the new trailer below and see American Assassin when it hits Cineplex theatres September 15th!

Deadpool 2 has an official release date of June 1st, 2018 and production officially began this week! Even though that's more than a year away we cannot be more pumped! Ryan Reynolds will return as everyone's favourite foul-mouthed anti-hero. The plot for this one is still under wraps but we do know that the story will involve Cable (son of the X-Men character Cyclops), played by Josh Brolin. David Leitch is set to direct; he also has Atomic Blonde hitting theatres this coming July. The original Deadpool was such a fun ride that the wait for Deadpool 2 is going to be looong... check out the teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 and a picture from the movie's set below!

Today in movie news: retirements, creative differences, and tons of behind-the-scenes featurettes. Check it out below!

Last night, we heard that legendary method actor Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring from acting. The There Will Be Blood star has three Oscars and an almost unparalleled filmography. He's widely considered one of our best actors of all time, which is why most have been devastated by this news. While we're hoping Daniel changes his mind at some point in the future, we can at least look forward to seeing him in what will apparently be his last role, as a fashion designer in Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread, due out later this year. 

Sad news in the Star Wars world, as we learned that the directors of the new Han Solo prequel film, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, have left the project due to creative differences. The 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie filmmakers were likely bringing a more comedic approach to the film, as that is their forte. We're curious about how this will affect the prequel, which has been in production for some time now. Word is that Lucasfilm is looking to replace the duo with filmmaker Ron Howard.

We've got a new featurette from the film Thank You For Your Service, which stars Miles Teller as a soldier suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.The film also stars Haley Bennett and Amy Schumer. Check out the behind the scenes look below!

We're super pumped for War for the Planet of the Apes, which is getting stellar early reviews. Today a new featurette dropped, which highlights Andy Serkis' amazing motion-capture performance and the incredible visual effects used in the film. Check it out!

It's apparently the day of featurettes, as we have a third behind the scenes look, this time at the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049. If what you saw in the trailer blew your mind, there are even more visuals to feast your eyes on in the video below. Blade Runner 2049 sees Ryan Gosling as a new blade runner named K who discovers a long-kept secret that could plunge society into chaos. This leads him to finding Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has been missing for almost thirty years. Check it out below!

It also gives us a little glimpse at some new costumes, and is obviously getting us super pumped for the new film.

Daniel Day-Lewis retires from acting

21 June 2017 9:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Three-time Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis has decided to bring the curtain down on his illustrious career, announcing that he will be retiring from acting following the release of his final film, an untitled collaboration with director Paul Thomas Anderson which is set for release on December 25th of this year.

Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor,” reads a statement from Day-Lewis’ spokesperson Leslee Dart. “He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”

Having made his screen debut in 1971’s Sunday, Bloody Sunday, Day-Lewis went on to earn a reputation as one of the finest actors of all-time and is renowned for being extremely dedicated to his craft, often remaining in character off-screen during his roles. He is the only person to win three Best Actor Oscars – for My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood and Lincoln – and was nominated for two further Oscars for Gangs of New York and In the Name of the Father. »

Why Daniel Day-Lewis' Retirement Is a Major Loss to the Movies

21 June 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Daniel Day-Lewis has earned many accolades and awards over the last 35 years, but perhaps no one has more perfectly encapsulated this actor's appeal than comedian Paul F. Tompkins. Cast in a tiny part in 2007's There Will Be Blood opposite Day-Lewis, the stand-up comic later related what their first on-set encounter was like. "Now, I had been told that Daniel Day-Lewis was kind of an intense person," Tompkins says. "And he's really not. He's really … The Most Intense Person that has ever lived on Earth.

Daniel Day-Lewis Retires from Acting Once Again

20 June 2017 6:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Oscar Award winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis has decided to quit acting. Again. The highly selective British born method actor has taken less roles over the years, but has remained in high demand. Day-Lewis has gained praise for his chameleon like versatility and intense acting chops, often not leaving character, even off-screen. During the filming of Lincoln, cast and crew had to refer to Day-Lewis as Mr. Lincoln while on set. His stage career came to an end in 1990 when he walked out of a performance of Hamlet, claiming that he had seen the ghost of his late father and quit acting in the early 2000s, disillusioned with Hollywood.

Variety reports that Daniel Day-Lewis has not given a reason for his statement. Day-Lewis' representative, Leslee Dart had this to say.

"Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. »

Day-Lewis, who made a splash early on in his career with supporting roles in films like My Beautiful Laundrette and A Room With A View, has previously expressed concern about the level of press intrusion he has faced because of his profession.
