“mother!” (September 15)

The return of Darren Aronofsky should be enough to get any cinephile back to the theater, but the fact that “mother!” has remained so secretive with just under a month to go has only made anticipation higher. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem play a couple whose lives are »

Brad’s Status Trailer Starring Ben Stiller

26 July 2017 8:58 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

For most of his career, Ben Stiller has alternated between big studio comedies and smaller art house ones, but as he gets older he seems to be gravitating a little more towards the latter. His latest film finds him teaming up with writer-director Mike White (Year of the Dog), who has followed a similar path […] »

‘Brad’s Status’ Trailer: Ben Stiller is Making 2017 The Year He Becomes An Indie Movie Star

25 July 2017 7:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ben Stiller has dabbled in the indie film world only twice this decade (three times if you count his small role as himself in Mike Birbiglia’s “Don’t Think Twice”), but both times have resulted in some of the best work of his career: Noah Baumbach’s “Greenberg” and “While We’re Young.” He’s reuniting with Baumbach for a third time in the well-reviewed Cannes family drama “The Meyerowitz Stories,” which is one of two high profile speciality releases that guarantee fall 2017 is the season Stiller officially becomes an indie movie star.

Stiller’s other indie project is “Brad’s Status,” from writer-director Mike White. The comedian plays a suburban husband and father whose comfortable life is thrown into disarray when a trip to Boston to look at colleges with his son  triggers a crisis of confidence. »

IndieWire Fall Film Festival Wish List: The 58 Movies We Want to See Most

24 July 2017 7:16 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood 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.

Interview: Alison Brie and Molly Shannon on Their Characters in The Little Hours

28 June 2017 10:23 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Arriving in theaters in New York and Los Angeles this Friday is Jeff Baena’s oddball religious comedy (with has a hint of witchcraft to it) The Little Hours. An official selection of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, Baena’s film is an adaptation of The Decameron, and during a recent press day for the film, Daily Dead had the opportunity to speak with two of the co-stars of The Little Hours, Alison Brie (Mad Men, Community) and Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live, Never Been Kissed).

During our interview, the actresses discussed what initially drew them into working on The Little Hours, being able to collaborate with such a strong cast of females, their characters, and more.

So what was the biggest appeal for you to come into this project and work with Jeff? Was it the fact that it was an opportunity to be a part of such an unusual film? »

Beatriz at Dinner review – Salma Hayek takes on white privilege in savage drama

7 June 2017 7:07 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A standout turn from the often under-utilized actor is one of the many joys of this carefully choreographed dinner party satire that acts as a cutting allegory of Trump’s America

It’s tempting, if rather tiresome, to look for social commentary on the current, fractured state of the Us in whatever piece of culture that comes our way. A cursory glance at any coverage of the small screen adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale, aka The Show We Need Right Now™, will have made you boringly aware of this. But given that we’re yet to truly see the effect that the newly elected president will have on the creative direction of screenwriters, it’s mostly redundant to grasp at straws this early on.

But Mike White, who has quietly been writing some of the sharpest films (and one of the most underrated TV shows) of the past 15 years, »

18 May 2017 1:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures has joined Amazon Studios for a joint release of Ben Stiller’s comedy “Brad’s Status” and scheduled a Sept. 15 release date in the U.S.

The deal was announced Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival, where Sierra/Affinity is handling foreign sales. It’s the second release for Annapurna’s nascent distribution operation, which launches with the Aug. 4 opening of “Detroit,” Kathryn Bigelow’s drama about the race riots of 1967.

Amazon Studios came on to co-finance and handle the North American theatrical release of “Brad’s Status” in October. Mike White directed the movie, which also stars Michael Sheen, Luke Wilson, Jenna Fischer and Austin Abrams.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment first unveiled the project in July after White brought the project to Ske with Plan B attached. Ske, Plan B, and Dave Bernad are producing. Ske and Amazon are co-financing the film.
