Video of the Day: Watch a new compilation video of First and Final frames in films

30 September 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The way a film starts and the way it ends can tell a lot about a movie, as well as the particular style of the director behind the project. Numerous films throughout history have had memorable opening and closing shots that have elevated the feature in question, while also taking on a life of their own as iconic moments in cinema.

Following his first exploration of first and final frames in film, vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney has revisited the topic in a new video, looking at 70 new films and how their opening and closing mirror each other. Swinney had this to say in the episode description.

After numerous requests, I finally decided to create a sequel to “First and Final Frames”. Part II plays the opening and closing shots of 70 films side-by-side. Like the first video, some of the opening shots are strikingly similar to the final shots, while »

Author Michael Lewis May be Making Oscar History with Latest Adaptation, ‘The Big Short’

29 September 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The Big Short, the star-studded drama about the mid-2000’s housing bubble collapse from director Adam McKay, is the latest adaptation of author Michael Lewis’ works. The film, which will premiere on closing night of the 2015 AFI Fest in Los Angeles, follows recent Lewis adaptations The Blind Side (2008) and Moneyball (2011), both of which received best picture nominations.

Lewis is hardly the only author to have his works adapted for the big screen in recent years, but the recognition of his films by the Academy are noteworthy.

While young adult authors Suzanne Collins and James Dashner have had major commercial success recently with The Hunger Games and Maze Runner franchises, respectively, there have not received notice come Oscar season.

On the other hand, recent best picture nominees that have been adapted from written works are generally isolated incidents for the authors. Annie Proulx had her short »

Led by an enigmatic consultant with a questionable past [Benicio Del Toro], the team sets out on a clandestine journey forcing Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive.

A Lionsgate presentation, a Black Label Media presentation, a Thunder Road production, a Denis Villeneuve film.

Votd: See the work of Roger Deakins in ‘Deakins: Shadows in the Valley’

25 September 2015 5:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In honor of the wide release of Sicario, the latest work by the great cinematographer Roger Deakins, it seemed like a better time than ever to revisit his past work.

Deakins has a long (Oscar-less) career working with the Coen Brothers on No Country For Old Men, A Serious Man, and many of their other hits. But he also is known for his work on The Shawshank Redemption, The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Road to Perdition, and most recently in the best shot James Bond movie of all-time, Skyfall.

For some reason Deakins hasn’t won an Oscar for that career yet, but maybe it will change this year with Sicario. If not, the Academy should reevaluate their life choices.

The video is produced by Plot Points Productions.

Moonrise Kingdom (Wes Anderson)

Wes Anderson’s leap through the animated realm was a key moment that shifted his filmic characterization toward metaphysical poignancy, thus making way for Moonrise Kingdom, an impressionistically stylized portrait of a pre-Vietnam adolescent bliss. It’s not just Pierret Le Fou for children, but a story about the recreation of storytelling, appropriating aesthetics from low and high arts to burn memories of innocent times as a protection against the fears of adulthood, portrayed here as a melancholic, »

For Your Consideration: Have We Already Seen Our Best Picture Oscar Winner?

21 September 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What do our eight most recent winners for the best picture Oscar -- "No Country For Old Men," "Slumdog Millionaire," "The Hurt Locker," "The King's Speech," "The Artist," "12 Years a Slave" and "Birdman" -- have in common? Every single one of them premiered (either in theaters or at a film festival) by mid-September. One has to go back to Martin Scorsese's "The Departed" to find a best picture winner we hadn't seen by September 20 in a given year, and it missed that mark only by a week (it premiered on September 26). That begs the question: Have we already seen our ultimate winner of the incoming awards season? If so, the answer is not so obvious. In other years, by the time the Toronto International Film Festival reached its halfway point, films like "The King's Speech" and "12 Years a Slave" were already being deemed the likely champions. Notably, that was not the case last year. »

How Roger Deakins Crossed New Borders with Denis Villeneuve for 'Sicario'

17 September 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Call it "Prisoners" on steroids. That's because "Sicario" (referring to a Mexican hitman as well as Jewish zealots who revolted against the Romans) expands its dark psychological themes, pitting idealistic FBI agent Emily Blunt against lethal consultant Benicio Del Toro during a secret raid on Mexico's most powerful drug lord. It's the perfect backdrop for Roger Deakins to cross new aesthetic borders for his second collaboration with director Denis Villeneuve (they are currently prepping the "Blade Runner" sequel, which starts shooting next summer). But unlike the bleached look of say, "No Country for Old Men," Deakins embraced a more colorful landscape for "Sicario," which is set on the Mexican border and is also very brutal. The look may be heightened to some extent but it's still reality-based. "The landscape needed to be a character and it says something about what we humans were doing against this beautiful »

An A-z Of The Upcoming 2016 Oscar Race

15 September 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s going to be a weird Oscar season. Every year since “The Departed” won eight years ago, we’d already seen the eventual Best Picture winner by now, sometimes at Cannes (“No Country For Old Men,” “The Artist”), but usually at one of the early-fall festivals. But in 2015, Venice, Telluride and Toronto have all unveiled their biggest ticket items, and we’re still without an obvious frontrunner. There have been some hits, and some have pointed to one film or another as a strong potential (Vulture have tipped “Spotlight” already), but no one’s been throwing out the kind of “Best Picture Race Is Over’ headline that we’ve become used to in recent years, in part because of three big last-minute heavyweights that are unlikely to screen before early December: David O. Russell’s “Joy,” Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s “The Revenant. »

Cinematographer Roger Deakins Takes Visceral Approach To His Craft

15 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If Roger Deakins were cast in a movie, he might play a big game hunter, or a celebrated explorer — he has that kind of physical presence. He’s a manly man. Yet there’s sensitivity behind the virility. His nature is calm; his manner soft-spoken; his sartorial style consistent: white cotton Oxford shirt, casual windbreaker and scruffy boots. The outward simplicity reflects an approach he applies to the craft of cinematography. But the result is anything but.

“Everybody uses the same tools, the same technology, the same work flows. But it’s all about your taste and how you apply it,” says Richard Crudo, president of the American Society of Cinematographers. “And I think that’s what makes Roger so compelling. His approach to everything is filtered through his eye and his taste in a way that only he is capable. It’s that simple, if that can be thought »

Roger Deakins, Denis Villeneuve Embrace Harsh, Cruel Nature in ‘Sicario’

15 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Denis Villeneuve, the French-Canadian director whose drug cartel thriller “Sicario” opens Sept. 18, says that film and his previous, “Prisoners” — both shot by Roger Deakins —“belong to the same cinematic alphabet. Both movies wanted to embrace nature.”

“For ‘Prisoners,’ we were embracing the idea of shooting during Thanksgiving in the fall, that kind of depressing, dark light. And ‘Sicario’ is the opposite; we went for the harsh, brutal light of the Chihuahua Desert (in Mexico) — very harsh, very cruel sunlight.”

Villeneuve adds that both features deal with “a naturalistic approach, and a kind of minimalism visually,” which happen to be Deakins’ stock in trade.

If the d.p. can do without artificial light, or f/x, for that matter, all the better. What he can capture on camera is what he prefers to see onscreen. That’s not to say he won’t use whatever tools are necessary. On “Sicario,” like “Prisoners, »

Woody Harrelson Set To Play The Villain In War Of The Planet Of The Apes

15 September 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Woody Harrelson is set to play the main villain in Matt Reeves' highly anticipated War Of The Planet Of The Apes. The incredibly talented True Detective and No Country For Old Men actor will play a character called 'the Colonel', per THR. He is the second human character to be cast in the movie so far, joining Gabriel Chavarria, who has an untitled supporting role. Andy Serkis is naturally set to return via motion capture as the movie's ape protagonist, 'Caesar', while the script will be written by Reeves' Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes colleague, Mark Bomback. The rebooted Planet Of The Apes franchise has been one of the most consistently brilliant series of the last half-decade, achieving widespread commercial and critical success. With Harrelson on board, that trend looks set to continue with this next installment. War Of The Planet Of The Apes hits theatres July »

Woody Harrelson To Battle Caesar As Bad Guy In Next ‘Planet Of The Apes’ Movie

15 September 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He’s never gone away — he’s been working consistently in the movies since the early 1990s, often as a headliner — but the recent resurgence of Woody Harrelson has been something of a joy to see. Showing enormous longevity for an actor who first turned heads as the dim-witted Woody on “Cheers,” Harrelson’s starred in a diverse range of classics, from “White Men Can’t Jump” through “Wag The Dog” and “No Country For Old Men,” but he’s had a hell of a run in the last five or six years. Beginning with the surprise success of “Zombieland” in the same year that he picked up his second Oscar nod for “The Messenger,” Harrelson’s been on fire, with highlights including a scorching performance in “Rampart,” being the moral center of the giant “Hunger Games” franchise, and of course, his acclaimed turn in the first season of “True Detective. »

Four Films for September

8 September 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

As the dog days of summer come to a close and the first turn of Autumn is before us, now is the perfect time to look ahead to films we don’t want to miss in the coming weeks.  There are four films for September that stand out with potential award winning performances, new films by rising star directors, and some familiar faces in new places. Here’s our list in chronological order by release date:

Time Out of Mind (September 9th)

This is a film already creating some buzz as it does the festival circuit, and with good reason. It’s been awhile since Richard Gere has really displayed his acting chops.  There have been too many forgettable roles for the actor who burst on the scene many decades ago with the title role in An Officer and a Gentlemen.  Based on early critical review, »

Simeon Rice on His 'Kill or Be Killed' Horror Film, 'Unsullied'

28 August 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

During his 12-year NFL career, Simeon Rice made three Pro Bowls, won a Super Bowl and was named Defensive Rookie of the Year. His 122 sacks are the 17th most in league history, and, along with Hall of Famers Warren Sapp and Derrick Brooks, he helped turn the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense into one of the most formidable units in football.

But, apparently, all he really wanted to do was direct.

In the eight years since he last played in the NFL, Rice has graduated from the New York Film Academy »

Emily Blunt Is Kate Macer In New Sicario Clip

24 August 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Watch Emily Blunt in this brand new clip from the upcoming cartel-thriller Sicario. (trailer)

From director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Incendies) comes a searing emotional-thriller that descends into the intrigue, corruption and moral mayhem of the borderland drug wars.

When Arizona FBI agent and kidnap-response-team leader Kate Macer (Golden Globe winner Emily Blunt) uncovers a Mexican cartel’s house of death, her shocking find leads to profound consequences on both a personal and global level.

Kate is recruited to join a covert black-ops mission headed by a mysterious Colombian operative known only as Alejandro (Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Best Supporting Actor, Traffic, 2000) along with special agent Matt Graver (Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin, Best Supporting Actor, Milk, 2008).

Even as Kate tries to convince herself she’s on a hunt for justice, she is thrust into the dark heart of a secret battleground that has swept up ruthless cartels, kill-crazy assassins, »
