Patty Clarkson's 2010 Triple: Cairo Time, Easy A and Shutter Island

29 December 2010 7:08 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Patty and the NYC premiere

this summerEarlier this month I met with Patricia Clarkson to discuss another fine year in one of the most pleasurable of modern character actor filmographies. Hers. I was waiting for the right opportunity to share it with you, and since Cairo Time is out on DVD, Academy voters are busy weighing the various Best Actress options, and today is Patty's 51st birthday, it was high time.

Through an unfortunate scheduling snafu I was less prepared when I met her than I am accustomed to being. I apologized with a wee warning that I'd be winging it. I bring this up because, as many of will remember, I have closely clocked her career. She came in at #2 in my 2005 countdown "Actresses of the Aughts" (yes we should revisit that list now that the decade has wrapped) and because I just want to share the unedited transcript. »

Cruz's Near Miss At Lakers Game

27 December 2010 4:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Penelope Cruz had a lucky escape during a Christmas Day trip to a basketball match when a towering player fell into the crowd and almost poleaxed the pregnant actress.

The Vicky Cristina Barcelona star attended the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Miami Heat in California on Saturday night with husband Javier Bardem.

She narrowly avoided an injury when a Lakers player launched himself into the air reaching for the ball and smashed into a row of fans just inches from where Cruz and Bardem were sitting. »

Bardem And Cruz Cancel Spanish Christmas

23 December 2010 11:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz will spend their last Christmas before becoming parents in Los Angeles because bad weather in Europe has dashed their hopes of returning to their native Spain.

The Vicky Cristina Barcelona actors split their time between Madrid and Los Angeles and have been in Hollywood in recent weeks as Bardem promotes his latest film, Biutiful.

And they are preparing to celebrate Christmas with their American pals instead of joining family and friends in Spain, as a result of the heavy snowfall which has shut down airports and caused havoc for travellers across northern Europe.

Speaking to late night U.S. TV presenter Jay Leno, Bardem says, "We're still working on that (plans for Christmas). (But) based on how the airports are in Europe, I think we're going to stay here!"

The couple, which wed in July, will welcome its first child together in March.

They're not the only movie stars stranded in Los Angeles - Kevin Spacey has had to scrap his plans to fly back to his adopted London for a white Christmas because he can't get a flight. »

“Blue Valentine” wins MPAA Appeal

8 December 2010 6:34 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

hollywoodnews.com: Following a hearing this afternoon, The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced that it has won a unanimous appeal of the Nc-17 rating initially given to its feature film Blue Valentine by the Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA’s Classification and Rating Administration had bestowed the Nc-17 due to one scene, a sexually intimate sequence between a married couple trying to repair their broken relationship.

The rare unanimous decision by the appeal board strengthens the ability of the film to reach audiences as an acknowledged award-season contender, already nominated for a Gotham Award and Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize. It has also received wide kudos from critics such as Entertainment Weekly’s Dave Karger, who wrote, “If there’s any justice, Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams will both earn Oscar nominations for their raw, arresting performances.”

Complicated Character

8 December 2010 6:04 AM, PST | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Javier Bardem is not one to shy away from challenges. His brave work in Julian Schnabel's "Before Night Falls," in which he portrayed Cuban poet and dissident Reinaldo Arenas, earned Bardem his first Oscar nomination. His equally moving performance in "The Sea Inside" earned him a Golden Globe nom. And then there was his chilling portrayal of sociopath Anton Chigurh in the Coen brothers' "No Country for Old Men," for which Bardem won the Academy, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and BAFTA awards for best supporting actor two years ago. So when Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu ("Amores Perros," "21 Grams," "Babel") sent the Spanish actor the script for "Biutiful," Bardem was at once drawn to the lead character, Uxbal, a dying man racing against time to ensure that his children are left in good hands. Bardem describes Uxbal as a man "trapped between what he would like to do »

Allen Monument Unveiled In Russia

3 December 2010 8:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

A monument in honour of Oscar-winning director Woody Allen has been unveiled in Russia to celebrate the film-maker's 75th birthday this week (beg29Nov10).

The Annie Hall star reached the milestone on Wednesday, and officials in the port of Kaliningrad marked the occasion by revealing a special concrete column dedicated to the Hollywood legend.

It features a bronze hand holding a huge pair of Allen's trademark spectacles, and has one of his famous quotes - "All people know the same truth; our lives consist of how we choose to distort it" - painted on the side.

Officials in Kaliningrad chose to honour the legendary film-maker because the city was formerly known as Konigsberg - Allen's real surname.

And it's not the first monument to the star - a life-size statue of Allen stands in his favourite Spanish city, Oviedo, where he shot his 2008 movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona. »

Woody Turns 75. Undoubtedly Writing 43rd Feature Film.

1 December 2010 7:09 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

What you're looking at below is a screenshot from the new Film Experience site (opening in a couple of weeks) in the "top tens" section... which is more like a "top 1" for each year from 1920-1979 (until I see or revisit more films from those years).

Woody Allen made my favorite films of 1977 (Annie Hall), 1979 (Manhattan) and 1985 (The Purple Rose of Cairo) and came very close to doing so in 1986 (Hannah and Her Sisters) and 1992 (Husbands and Wives). I haven't done the math but he's way up their under "most represented filmmaker" in my personal bliss lists. Other repeat #1 champs are Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks and William Wyler. But you'll see those lists soon enough.

Though I've expressed concern about Woody Allen's qualitative if not quantitative decline in various posts (I've nearly hated the last two films, Whatever Works and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger), he has »

Happy Birthday, Woody!

1 December 2010 4:11 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Movie icon Woody Allen hits 75 on Wednesday, marking a Hollywood career which has taken him from writing jokes for The Tonight Show to directing and starring in Academy Award-winning classics.

The veteran film-maker, actor and comedian has earned his place in movie history as one of the most prolific directors of his generation - shooting and releasing roughly one film every year for the last three decades.

And Allen shows no signs of slowing down - he shot his latest project, Midnight in Paris, in the French capital with an A-list cast including Rachel McAdams, Adrien Brody and Marion Cotillard.

To mark his milestone, WENN has trawled through the archives and put together 10 fascinating facts about the legend himself...

- He was born Allan Stewart Konigsberg in New York City and took his stage name from the clarinet player Woody Herman.

- He studied film at New York University but was thrown out after failing a film course in his first year.

- Allen got his start in showbiz when he was just a teenager - at 19, he was writing scripts for several TV shows, including Candid Camera, The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show.

- He has won three Academy Awards and been nominated a total of 21 times, holding more Oscar screenwriting nominations than any other writer.

- Allen has had romantic relationships with his actress muses Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow and was once married to actress Louise Lasser.

- The director is his own harshest critic and refuses to watch his movies after they are released, although he's hailed 2005's Match Point, starring Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers as lovers, as his best work.

- A life-size statue of Allen stands in his favourite Spanish city, Oviedo. He shot his 2008 movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona there.

- Jazz is one of Allen's greatest passions - he has been playing the clarinet since he was a child and now performs weekly at the Carlyle Hotel in Manhattan.

- Allen provided the voice of the neurotic worker ant, Z, in the 1998 animated hit Antz.

- A devoted New York Knicks fan, Allen is a season-ticket holder and has four courtside seats. »

2010 Gotham Awards: Winter's Bone - Best Ensemble Performance

29 November 2010 6:45 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

If you ask me: this was a fight between an underdog in Winter’s Bone and a favorite in The Kids Are All Right (Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo). The underdog won. With Jennifer Lawrence not winning in Breakthrough Actor award category, this serves as the consolation prize for the actress, but a testament to the cast of almost unknown actors that gave the Ozarks portion of aural America true personality. This goes to Lawrence, John Hawkes, Dale Dickey, Lauren Sweetser, Garret Dillahunt and Kevin BreznahanOther Noms:  The Kids Are All Right Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Mia Wasikowska, Josh Hutcherson (Focus Features) Life During Wartime Shirley Henderson, Ciarán Hinds, Allison Janney, Michael Lerner, Chris Marquette, Rich Pecci, Charlotte Rampling, Paul Reubens, Ally Sheedy, Dylan Riley Snyder, Renée Taylor, Michael Kenneth Williams (IFC Films) Please Give Catherine Keener, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Rebecca Hall, Ann Guilbert, Lois Smith, »

Woody Allen doesn't learn anything from movies

26 November 2010 12:00 AM, PST | Virgin Media - Movies | See recent Virgin Media - Movies news »

Woody Allen ''never'' learns anything from his movies. The legendary director and writer - famous for his involvement in films including 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' and 'Manhattan' - does not believing filmmaking is a ''science'' and rarely learns anything while doing one movie he can take to another project. He said: ''It's not like science. In science, you have to replicate experiments. In art it's a new thing each time, so you never learn anything. ''You do a movie like 'Match Point' and it's got its own set of problems, and then I'll do 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' and find that nothing I .. »

Competition: Whatever Works – DVD Competition

16 November 2010 12:25 PM, PST | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

Academy-Award winner Woody Allen follows up on the critically acclaimed Vicky Cristina Barcelona, with Whatever Works available on DVD from Warner Home Video on 15 November 2010 and, to celebrate, Pure Movies is giving away three copies! This witty and enjoyable tale of New York resident Boris Yellnikoff is played by three-time Golden Globe nominee, Larry David (Curb your Enthusiasm). Attempting to impress his ideologies on religion, relationships and the randomness (and worthlessness) of existence, lifelong New York resident Boris Yellnikoff (Larry David) rants to anyone who will listen. However, when he begrudgingly allows naive Mississippi runaway Melodie St.Ann Celestine (Evan Rachel WoodThe Wrestler, Thirteen) to live in his apartment, his reclusive rages give way to an unlikely friendship and Boris begins to mould the impressionable young girl’s worldly views to match his own. With a strong supporting cast including Academy-Award nominee Patricia Clarkson (Shutter Island, Lars and the Real Girl »

'Lay' Odds on Bruce Willis, Rebecca Hall Starring in Gambling Flick

12 November 2010 4:15 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Filed under: Movie News, Cinematical

Is it the bald bullet head? The steady stream of wisecracks? Or his friendly relations with his ex-wife's current husband? Whatever the reason, Bruce Willis has been all over our radar this week, linked to multiple projects. Just the other day we heard that Willis may be teaming up with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in a heist movie and now we're hearing that the popular actor could be starring with Rebecca Hall in the big screen adaptation of 'Lay the Favorite,' a gambling memoir, to be directed by Stephen Frears ('Tamara Drewe,' 'The Queen'). Please hold all jokes about who's laying whom.

"Neither Willis nor Hall are sure bets" (ha ha), reports Deadline, since Willis is also considering the next Wes Anderson movie and Hall could be the next Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby.' Still, it's fun to consider that Hall, »

Johansson Lands Sexy Alien Role

4 November 2010 9:08 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Scarlett Johansson will combine sex, seduction, spookiness and sci-fi in new movie Under The Skin - she plays an alien femme fatale who uses her sultry charms to snare victims.

The Vicky Cristina Barcelona star has landed the lead role as Isserley, an extraterrestrial sent to Earth to capture men and transport them to her planet, where inhabitants have a craving for human meat.

The movie, directed by Jonathan Glazer, is expected to begin filming early next year.

A spokesman for production company Film Nation tells the Hollywood Reporter, "(Johansson plays) an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerising woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey - her voracious sexuality... Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes."

Film Nation boss Glen Basner adds, "We're so excited to be working on this arrestingly original movie. How could we pass up the chance to work with a visionary director like Jonathan, especially when combined with the intriguing notion of Scarlett Johansson as a ruthless alien seductress?" »

Scarlett Johansson Up For Female Leads In 'Great Gatsby,' 'We Bought A Zoo'

2 November 2010 3:11 PM, PDT | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

In case you missed the memo (and I'm not saying you did), Scarlett Johansson is one of Hollywood's most in-demand actresses. But for someone who just kicked butt (literally) as the superheroic Black Widow in this summer's biggest hit, "Iron Man 2," she's got a pretty wide-open schedule. In fact, the only gig Johansson has lined up is reprising her Widow role in 2012's "The Avengers." So it's no wonder that with some high-profile projects currently looking to cast their leading ladies, ScarJo's name has popped up numerous times today alone.

This morning, Deadline reported she was one of a gaggle of gorgeous Hollywood A-listers being considered for the pivotal role of Daisy Buchanan in ,a href="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/baz-luhrmann/">Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" adaptation, which reportedly has Leonardo DiCaprio in line for the Jay Gatsby role and Tobey Maguire tentatively on tap to play narrator Nick Carraway. »

Gwyneth Paltrow Impresses 'Glee' Cast on Set

21 October 2010 1:49 AM, PDT | Celebrity Mania | See recent Celebrity Mania news »

Gwyneth Paltrow was "really classy" on the set of "Glee". The Oscar-winning actress has begun filming her guest spot for the musical TV show and her co-stars were very impressed with her performance and attitude.

"We shot some stuff with her. She's been great," Harry Shum Jr., who plays Mike Chang, told E! News. "We kind of just showed up on set and were like, 'Oh, hi Gwyneth Paltrow.' She's really sweet, really classy. You look at someone who's an Oscar-winning actress and you think they're going to act a certain way and she's just a regular person."

The show's creator Ryan Murphy has previously said it was a "dream come true" for Gwyneth to appear in the show. He said, "Gwyneth Paltrow is going to come and do an episode soon, which is amazing. Having her come on the show is pretty much a dream come true - »

You Will Link a Tall Dark Stranger

19 October 2010 8:21 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Scott Feinberg points out that Sony Pictures Classics is the first studio out of the gate with Academy screeners. This is a good strategy as I've noted previously. I am anxious to watch Please Give again (very funny movie with delightful actressing throughout... in other words: my kind of movie). I haven't yet screened You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger but shall very soon now that it's here. I am feeling the fan guilt as it's one of only two Woody Allen movies I missed in theaters since I saw my very first one back in *gulp* 1984. No, Woody has not always deserved my slavish devotion... but he came very very close twice in the last decade to giving me what I needed from him (Match Point & Vicky Cristina Barcelona, duh!) so there's still a sliver of hope each year.
