From The Press Releas
Image Entertainment presents Ghoul on DVD and digital download. Directed by Gregory Wilson (The Girl Next Door), Ghoul stars Nolan Gould (“Modern Family,” Friends with Benefits), Andrea Frankle (21 Jump Street), Mattie Liptak (The Odd Life of Timothy Green), Glen Warner (Django Unchained), Zach Rand (The Woman), Brett Lapeyrouse (21 Jump Street) and Barry Corbin (No Country for Old Men, "The Closer").
Something ghastly haunts Golgotha Cemetery – an entity of unspeakable evil…and insatiable hunger. It is the summer of 1984, a time that should be full of lazy, carefree days for 12-year-old Timmy (Gould) and his two best friends, Doug and Barry. »
Current Streak: 2 Straight Weekends #1 Predicted Correctly Threat Level to Streak Being Broken: 90 percent or so? Every time I attempt one of these coin flip predictions they go horribly awry. Reason: There are so many questions surrounding this weekend. Is the older dollar going to take it with Les Miserables? Or will the kids support The Hobbit and Django Unchained? Do those two titles hurt each other's chances? Can a nearly three-hour musical top a less than two-hour musical (Mamma Mia) at the box office? Let's break it down! Les Miserables exploded onto the scene on Tuesday and hasn't looked back. The film put up a respectable $18 million dollar Christmas Day and followed it up with a sturdy $12 million on Wednesday, a day that is traditionally soft coming off of the holiday. The random question for this segment is will it matter with The Academy? The film is a certain Best Picture nominee, »

Winner of the Signis Award at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, here’s the first trailer for Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder. While it also screened in September at the Toronto International Film Festival, Todd McCarthy said in his Vff review that the director’s latest, “will, as they used to say, separate the men from the boys when it comes to die-hard allegiance to all things Terrence Malick.” Along with the mesmerizing voice over by Javier Bardem, I’m intigued by what Malick has in store for us with this follow-up to one of my favorite films of 2011, Tree Of Life. I’m definitely in.
After visiting Mont Saint-Michel . once known in France as the Wonder . at the height of their love, Marina (Olga Kurylenko) and Neil (Ben Affleck) come to Oklahoma, where problems soon arise. Marina makes the acquaintance of a priest and fellow exile (Javier Bardem), who is struggling with his vocation, »

StudioCanal have unveiled the official UK trailer for To The Wonder.
Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life), To The Wonder stars Rachel McAdams (Morning Glory), Ben Affleck (Argo), Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and Charles Baker (Splinter).
To The Wonder, which premiered earlier this year at the Venice International Film Festival, centers on Marina (McAdams) and Neil (Affleck), a couple who return home to Oklahoma when their relationship the rocks. Here, Marina meets a priest (Bardem), while Neil reconnects with an old friend (Kurylenko).
As stunning and earnest as the trailer is, the film has so far failed to connect with many critics. UK audiences will be able to make their own minds up when To The Wonder hits cinemas on February 22, 2013, while Us audiences will have to wait until April 12, 2013.

Between November and February of every Oscar season, rarely a day goes by that some sort of precursor award isn’t announced. It can all be pretty maddening, especially for those of us tasked with trying to predict the Academy Awards.
This is the time of year when you pretty much only have to throw a rock in order to hit a critics group announcing their year-end awards. Some years the critics all rally around one film, while other years have the love spread around much more. The thing is, though: Does it actually matter at all in terms of the Oscar race?
To be honest, not all critics groups are created equally. There’s some value to smaller groups like the Boston Society of Film Critics, but the ones that have any true sway are the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the New York Film Critics Circle. »

A movie needs more than mere critical praise or hefty box office to win Best Picture. The whole production must have a compelling backstory. Think of Kathryn Bigelow's vengeance against ex-hubby James Cameron ("Avatar") when "The Hurt Locker" prevailed in 2009. A few years earlier, think of how Cameron kept "Titanic" afloat amidst prophesies of doom and then sailed into Oscar history with a dazzling cargo of box office gold aboard. A film competing for the top award needs to shape the narrative of awards season and frame itself as the hero of the story. It's how “Lord of the Rings” was able to overcome its genre bias, “No Country for Old Men” its violence, and “The Hurt Locker” its dismal box office. Last year “The Artist” used it’s novelty as a black and white silent film in 2012 to position it as a nostalgic call back to Hollywood’s golden years. »
Josh Brolin has had one of the strangest rises to leading man status imaginable. Though he kicked off his career in The Goonies, he spent the next twenty years of his career in supporting parts, and on television with little success. Then came 2007, where he was not only in four big movies, he was great in all of them and the lead in No Country for Old Men. Now he’s a star and he’s one of the three leads of Gangster Squad. We had a chance to talk with Josh Brolin on set about the movie and his career, and that interview follows after the jump. Question: Can you talk about the fascination and the glamor of the gangster life, and what you know about it? Josh Brolin: Well it’s hit kind of a mythological place for me in that I have no knowledge of it »

Los Angeles, Dec 13 (Ians/Efe) Spanish actor Javier Bardem was nominated for the Screen Actors Guild Award for best supporting actor for his portrayal of the villain in the latest James Bond film, "Skyfall".
Bardem won both the SAG Award and the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as a spooky hit man in the 2007 film "No Country For Old Men".

Chicago – 2012 contained three great Tommy Lee Jones performances, and one of them was delivered by Josh Brolin. Whereas Jones himself was flat-out brilliant in “Hope Springs” and “Lincoln,” he was assigned the thankless task of playing second (or third) banana to the wisecracking, increasingly Bugs Bunny-like Will Smith in Barry Sonnenfeld’s wholly unnecessary third installment in the “Men in Black” franchise.
“Men in Black 3,” released a decade after the failed “Men in Black 2” and fifteen years after the original (and inimitable) smash hit, offers the latest proof that no franchise is considered dead. The fat lady had already sung a litany of operettas over “Mib”’s corpse, but Hollywood remains tone deaf. It’s little wonder why the film wasn’t the massive hit some executives had expected. Fifteen years is an awful long time for fans to wait for a decent follow-up, and Smith is nowhere »

Last week the James Bond movie franchise celebrated its 50th anniversary in style when Skyfall surpassed James Cameron's Avatar to become the highest-grossing film of all-time on home soil, and having returned to the top of both the UK and Us box office charts at the expense of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, 007's 23rd screen adventure has now claimed another record with the film overtaking Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 to become Sony's biggest ever release.
As of today (Sunday), Skyfall is currently sitting on a world-wide haul of $918 million, making it the third-biggest hit of 2012 behind The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises. With the film still going strong in most markets - not to mention the fact its yet to open in China, which is becoming an increasingly lucrative market for Western releases - there seems to be every chance that the acclaimed »

The second major critics organization has announced its Best of 2012 winners, and director Kathryn Bigelow’s drama Zero Dark Thirty is once again the victor. The National Board of Review named Zero Dark Thirty the best film of the year, also awarding Kathryn Bigelow with Best Director and Jessica Chastain with Best Actress. Bradley Cooper bested heavyweight Daniel Day-Lewis for the Best Actor trophy for his work in Silver Linings Playbook, while Leonardo DiCaprio and Ann Dowd took home the supporting awards for Django Unchained and Compliance, respectively. Other notable wins include Rian Johnson’s Looper script winning Best Original Screenplay (huzzah!) and Les Miserables being named Best Ensemble, with The Perks of Being a Wallflower (huzzah again!) and Argo making the Top 10 list. It certainly looks like the critics will be rallying around Zero Dark Thirty this year, but as we’ve seen many times in the past, the »

Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty enjoys another day in the precursor spotlight as it was named Best Film of 2012 by the National Board of Review. Bigelow was also named Best Director and Jessica Chastain named Best Actress. David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook also finally earned some respect with Bradley Cooper winning Best Actor over the likes of Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln) whose likelihood of winning the Oscar remains unfazed, and Russell winning for Best Adapted Screenplay. Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild won for best directorial debut and young Quvenzhane Wallis was named Breakthrough Actress. We can also now start taking Leonardo DiCaprio a little more seriously in the Best Supporting Actor category as he won for his role in Django Unchained. There were also a couple of nice surprises such as Rian Johnson winning Original Screenplay for Looper and Ann Dowd getting a nice mention »

The New York Film Critics Circle will let us know in a few hours. Instead of announcing their decisions all at once, the esteemed East Coast collection of critics is revealingits annual awards list as its members debate, deliberate, and decide on each category. That means we’re getting about three winners per hour.
It’s an important award for those in the long-haul race for the Oscars because it can highlight a previous fringe-dweller and get the guild-award groups to pay closer attention, which in turn means Academy voters may do the same. »

The New York Film Critics Circle (Nyfcc) will be the first organization to announce its picks for the best of 2012. The group, whose members include Time's Richard Corliss, Rolling Stone's Peter Travers, and Entertainment Weekly's Lisa Schwarzbaum and Owen Gleiberman, reveals its winners on Monday, Dec. 3. -Insertgroups:5- In the last ten years, four of Nyfcc's Best Picture winners have gone on to take the top Oscar: "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (2003), "No Country for Old Men" (2007), "The Hurt Locker" (2009), and "The Artist" (2011). You have to go back to 2002 to find a Nyfcc winner that wasn't at least nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: Todd Haynes's "Far from Heaven." This year, "The Master" is favored to win Best Picture, with odds of 21 to 10. Its closest competitors are "Argo" (4 to 1), "Lincoln" (11 to 2), and "Zero Dark Thirty& »
The movies have given us some seriously meaningful jackets over the years. Here's my pick - what are yours?
Daniel Fitzpatrick runs a monthly Midnight Movie event in Dublin called Hollywood Babylon.
In novels there are all sorts of ways to reveal to the reader what a protagonist is like, though these revelations can take time. Cinema has a mere hour or so in which to describe a character or situation, showing us in a flash what it would be impossible to narrate. This is where a nifty bit of set dressing or art direction comes in handy.
So that's movies and this is 'great movie jackets'.
The movies have given us so many coolly iconic, memorable jackets over the years – but we are looking for something else, something more meaningful.
The first thing this jacket does is acknowledge a debt, by knowingly »
