The Criterion Collection is Expanding to the UK on April 18th

4 March 2016 11:54 PM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Last month, various home media forums began passing around rumors that the Criterion Collection would expand to the United Kingdom in 2016. Several films which are part of the Criterion Collection were being submitted to the British Board of Film Classification.

Back in September, Jonathan Turell guested on the CrowdSource Studios podcast “The Gloves are Off”, in which he mentioned that the Criterion Collection was interested in expanding to new regions.

We discussed this idea back in The Newsstand episode 53 last month. You can find the Criterion UK thread on the Criterion Forum here.

Earlier today, Sight & Sound magazine released the digital version of their latest issue for April 2016, and in it they confirm the news that the Criterion Collection will begin releasing discs in the UK on April 18th:

Film Review: ‘Frank and Cindy’

24 February 2016 6:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A semi-pseudo-documentary based on a real one, “Frank and Cindy” never quite acquires a convincing raison d’etre despite impressive work from Rene Russo and Oliver Platt as dramatized versions of the real-life dysfunctional parents that writer-director G.J. Echternkamp already portrayed in his same-named 2007 feature documentary. Both films have the “Grey Gardens”-like trainwreck fascination of outsized personalities conducting their own ruin with delusions of grandeur still fully intact, but the narrative spine that might have given this version an arc and a purpose fails to materialize. The result is likely to struggle for theatrical berth, though cast names should make it viable as a home-format item.

During a term break from film school, Gj (Johnny Simmons) reluctantly returns home, where mom Cindy (Russo) greets him with: “Are you ready for the shock of your life? … I quit drinking!” That is a surprise, but she’s hiding a considerably less »

HBO’s Lgbt History Oscar Break: 1993 Supporting Acting Races

17 February 2016 9:57 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel is working his way through all the Lgbt-themed HBO productions.

 Last week we looked at some of HBO’s period dramas to see how Lgbt characters fared in ancient Rome, New York in the 1920s, and in the wild wild west. But now, we’re taking a two-week hiatus to play a game I like to call “Oscars What If…”

HBO has been producing great films for decades now and give or take an Elephant, they’ve been content to solely screen their made for TV movies on their network without any theatrical release. (Curiously, their documentary branch has been more eager to nab gold, understanding perhaps that statuettes can do wonders for that genre’s visibility). And, really, some years, you’re just left wondering how certain performances and films from HBO’s roster could have crashed that year’s Oscar race.

Welcome to the '60s! We're Dream Casting the NBC Live Version of Hairspray

13 January 2016 3:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

You can't stop this beat! For the fourth installment of its live musical series, NBC will be gifting us with a new take on the '60s-set, dance-heavy, politically charged Hairspray. We still have nearly a year until the show's December premiere, but in the meantime, we're dreaming up who should take on the iconic roles. While it'll be a challenge to live up to the 2007 film - Zac Efron, Amanda Bynes, Michelle Pfeiffer, John Travolta - this crew shouldn't have a problem.

‘Joy’ and ‘The Revenant’ are the Same Movie

12 January 2016 12:33 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A maverick gets attacked by bears. They’re beaten down by a cutthroat, capitalist system and threatened by partners who aren’t as trustworthy as they seem. After a series of blows and ostensible defeats, they persevere. Inspired by dreams of family, they ignore their detractors and challenge the machinations of evil commerce. In the end, they prevail, though the reward is bittersweet.

Joy and The Revenant are different films, targeting different audiences, but they contain some remarkable similarities. Both films showcase a blonde, blue-eyed megastar. Both films were released on December 25th, that holy day of box office reckoning. And both tell the same story of individual strength in the face of hardship. Their times, genders and circumstances are as far as blood from chocolate, but Hugh Glass and Joy Mangano’s onscreen lives can be understood as masculine/feminine interpretations of the same, timeless American tale.

The Revenant is a grueling, »

Jennifer Lawrence Contends Celebrities 'Should Be Allowed Time Off' from Fame

5 January 2016 8:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Take it from Jennifer Lawrence - being one of the hottest stars in Hollywood isn't all sunshine and roses. "It took a few years to adjust. I didn't really realize how angry and distorted I felt," she tells Glamour for its February cover story, of being thrust into the spotlight after the first Hunger Games movie. "I still felt entitled to a certain life that I just wasn't allowed to have [anymore]," she continues. "I felt like I had the right to say, 'I don't want to be photographed right now, I don't want people outside my house right now.' »

Jennifer Lawrence Paints a Vivid Picture of Her ‘Grey Gardens’ Life With Amy Schumer

5 January 2016 7:51 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

In her new Glamour interview, Jennifer Lawrence looks forward to her future with Amy Schumer. Instead of filthy headscarves and raccoons eating all their books, however, Lawrence and Schumer's co-life sounds like it will be mostly friendship and fun high jinks. Lawrence explains:   Amy and I have a life plan — we were with Diane Sawyer in Martha’s Vineyard for Thanksgiving. Not to brag. Diane politely threw it out, and then we’re sitting at the dinner table with her family, like, “We shouldn’t be here.” Anyway, Amy’s always wanted to live on Martha’s Vineyard, and we saw this house, and we’re like, “This is where we’re gonna Grey Gardens, and we’re gonna grow old and crazy together.” That's our life plan.Amy and I have a life plan—we were with Diane Sawyer in Martha’s Vineyard for Thanksgiving.
