Non-Twilight Film Roles That Will Restore Your Faith in Kristen Stewart

16 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

With Camp X-Ray hitting theaters this weekend, Kristen Stewart is finally exploring life beyond Twilight. The indie drama, which tells the story of one soldier stationed at Guantanamo Bay detention camp, is a far cry from Bella and the world of vampires Stewart became so famous for over the past five years. During that time, Stewart became pigeonholed and often hated on for her participation in The Twilight Saga. And for those who only know those films are doing themselves a disservice. Her latest film — the first of three high profile films she has coming out this year — has earned the actress accolades on the festival circuit and reminded many of the promise she showed in roles, such as Sarah Altman in Panic Room or Emily in Adventureland. It’s those films that fans (and the haters) should watch if they want to restore their faith in Stewart.

Why Vince Vaughn Is Actually a Great Pick For True Detective

24 September 2014 1:53 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When HBO confirmed this week that Vince Vaughn would be joining the cast of the second season of True Detective, the Internet's reaction was mixed, to say the least. Colin Farrell had already been confirmed as one of the detectives, and while Vaughn's name had been linked to the show already, some fans felt that the show wasn't the appropriate place for the king of Frat Pack comedy. However, you shouldn't discount Vaughn too quickly, as there are actually several reasons why he may be a perfect fit for the new season. Keep reading to see our breakdown of why Vince is a great pick. He's Not Playing Colin Farrell's Partner One of the biggest misconceptions about Vaughn's role in the new season is that he is playing one of the lead protagonists. Instead, Vaughn is playing Frank Semyon, a career criminal who is being described as "the central antagonist" on the show. »

'True Detective': Will the real Vince Vaughn step forward?

23 September 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The McConaissance was already in full swing when Matthew McConaughey agreed to star in the first season of True Detective with Woody Harrelson. But HBO and show creator Nic Pizzolatto are gambling that the hard-boiled anthology can serve as a rejuvenation machine for other treading-water actors aching to break out of a rut. HBO officially confirmed today that Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will star in season 2—but not as partners, a la Rust and Marty. Farrell is a cop, but Vaughn will play a “career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is »

Review: Tracks

20 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Michael Cusumano here to talk about a quality title before the similar Wild completely overshadows it. 

When people ask Robyn Davidson why she intends to trek across 1700 miles of punishing Australian desert with only four camels and her dog as company, she dodges the question or falls back on clichés like “Why not?” But even if Davidson is reluctant to spell out her motivation, director John Curran manages to make Robyn’s actions clear by tuning in the camera to her state of mind. In Tracks, the true story of Davidson’ 1977 journey, people are most often framed as mindless, swarming groups which descend on her, shattering her solitude. Journalists, tourists, even friends and family. They are all mobs. The sound design makes little attempt to separate their dialogue into discernable lines, letting them blend into a pack of chattering hyenas.

Wild review: Reese Witherspoon makes Oscar bid - Toronto 2014

15 September 2014 1:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jean-Marc Vallee ; Screenwriter: Nick Hornby ; Starring: Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Gaby Hoffman, Thomas Sadoski; Running time: 115 mins; Certificate: R

Directed by Dallas Buyers Club's Jean-Marc Vallee and based on a best-selling memoir by Cheryl Strayed, Wild stars Reese Witherspoon as a formerly heroin-addicted divorcee who decides to regain control of her spiralling existence by taking a 1,000-mile hike across the North American west.

Through a series of flashbacks, the narrative weaves in and out of Cheryl's present journey through the perilous but inspiring outdoors, and her past - the traumatising catalyst of her mother Bobbi's death, her descent into sex and drug addiction and her crumbling marriage. Her past hardships only highlight the several obstacles we see her overcome on her journey, including threats from rattlesnakes, a vanishing water supply, and the gargantuan backpack she lugs around, nicknamed 'The Monster'.

Reminiscent of many other journey-through-the-wilderness-as-metaphor-for-life movies, Wild is part Into the Wild, »

Tiff: Wild, Or How Witherspoon Got Her Groove Back

12 September 2014 9:25 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel's adventures in Toronto. Running on fumes... 

Color me surprised that my favorite among the consensus Best Picture hopeful Oscar launches from festival season (the others being Foxcatcher, Imitation Game and Theory of Everything... though I have yet to see Birdman which didn't play here) is Jean-Marc Vallée's Wild, an adaptation of the memoir by Cheryl Strayed. How could a months long solo hike across the Pacific Crest Trail be so cinematic? The answer is in its smart mosaic, visual and aural, as Reese hikes through expansive physical and intimate mental terrain. The present and the past converse and overlap consistently in the sound design like fragments of song sung, hummed or played as if remembered - who is singing? and snippets of dialogue the same evocative way. 

There's not much to say about the plot, the film's most recent kin being Into the Wild though Wild is the stronger film. »

Telluride Film Review: ‘Wild’

29 August 2014 8:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cheryl Strayed’s heartrending 2012 account of her 1,100-mile hike along the Pacific Crest Trail presented no shortage of obstacles en route to the bigscreen, not least in the way it used the great outdoors as the backdrop for a resolutely interior journey. But director Jean-Marc Vallee, screenwriter Nick Hornby and star-producer Reese Witherspoon have met the challenge head-on with imperfect but rewarding results in “Wild,” that represents a fine addition to the recent bumper crop of bigscreen survival stories. Resting squarely on Witherspoon’s sturdy shoulders (along with the back-crushing backpack she carts around throughout), the Fox Searchlight release should be admiringly received by critics and arthouse audiences come Dec. 5.

Still, the film could face some competition from John Curran’s equally accomplished “Tracks” (set to open Sept. 19 Stateside), this year’s other adaptation of a bestselling woman-in-the-wilderness memoir, and it remains to be seen whether it can improve on »

Reese Witherspoon’s ‘Wild’ Premieres to Oscar Buzz in Telluride

29 August 2014 6:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Telluride, Colo. — Fox Searchlight’s world premiere of “Wild,” starring Reese Witherspoon, kicked off the 41st Telluride Film Festival on Friday, screening to a packed Chuck Jones theater audience that included Witherspoon, co-star Laura Dern, director Jean-Marc Vallee and surprise guest Oprah Winfrey.

Wild,” based on the best-selling memoir, tells the true story of Cheryl Strayed, played by Witherspoon, and her hike across the 1100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail.

The pre-screening buzz on the adventure drama was all about Witherspoon. It was deserved: she offers a tour de force performance that moves her solidly into the Oscar race in the best actress category, where she last won in 2006 for “Walk the Line.” But the film should compete in many other categories, including supporting actress for Dern, who plays Witherspoon’s mother.

Review: Reese Witherspoon goes for it all in 'Wild'

29 August 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Telluride — There is a moment near the end of "Wild" where Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) runs into a young boy and his grandmother out on a weekend hike. Strayed has walked hundreds of miles on the Pacific Crest Trail in an attempt to deal with personal, emotional pain that has plagued her most of her young adult life. After learning of Strayed's heartbreaks the young boy (Evan O'Toole) sings her the song "Red River Valley." In the hands of a lesser director this scene could have been overly saccharine and misplaced. But director Jean-Marc Vallée makes it as artful and touching as it needs to be. Clearly, we should not have doubted him. Vallée was one of the main creative forces of "Dallas Buyers Club," but did not earn a Best Director Oscar nod. Instead, he made due with an editing nomination. This was disheartening in some respects because there »

Telluride vs. Toronto: The Battle for Oscar Supremacy

20 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Healthy, even heated competition between film festivals is nothing new. Cannes was founded in the late ’30s as the French response to Venice. In recent years, Shanghai has felt the heat from the government-backed Beijing, while both SXSW and Tribeca have sought to position themselves as viable alternatives to Sundance.

Rarely, however, have such tensions spiked quite so visibly, or with such high stakes involved, as in the case of Telluride and Toronto.

Nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains, the 41-year-old Telluride Film Festival is an intimate four-day affair that screens a highly selective program for Hollywood elites and deep-pocketed movie buffs. The 39-year-old Toronto Film Festival is an 11-day press and industry behemoth, Byzantine in its complexity and Canadian in its efficiency, which unspools about 300 features and attracts journalists, publicists, filmmakers and dealmakers from all over the world. Two very different events, forced by the vagaries of art, commerce »

Hikers on Pilgrimage to Abandoned 'Into the Wild' Bus Rescued

Authorities rescued three men making a pilgrimage to an abandoned bus in the Alaska wilderness made famous by the book and film Into the Wild. Three hikers, two from Wisconsin and a third with no known address, needed help last week after one of them tripped and hurt himself with an ax, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported. They ran into trouble on Aug. 6 on the Stampede Trail just north of the entrance to Denali National Park and Preserve, about 180 miles north of Anchorage. The Tri-Valley Volunteer Fire Department responded and gave the three hikers a ride

Emile Hirsch To Star In Just Jim For Craig Roberts

30 July 2014 4:13 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The name Craig Roberts has been high on the list of promising film talent ever since he took the screen by storm in Richard Ayoade’s film, Submarine, in 2010. That role brought with it well-deserved recognition, and a slew of varied offers, including The Double, Bad Neighbors and 22 Jump Street. Now, Roberts is turning all that good will into tangible opportunities behind the camera, by beginning pre-production on his own directorial debut at the tender age of just 23 – Just Jim.

Written by Roberts himself, Just Jim features the lead character realizing that he will be considered part of the socially acceptable group of teenagers, if he can successfully negotiate with his handsome and mysterious American neighbour. While Roberts is expected to play the lead, Emile Hirsch has been cast in the role of his neighbour. The cast is rounded out by Aneirin Hughes (Young Dracula), Nia Roberts (Doctor Who), Richard Harrington »

Reese Witherspoon Stars In First Trailer For Wild

10 July 2014 1:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Wednesday, Fox Searchlight Pictures debuted the first poster for their upcoming film, Wild. Today the studio has released the first trailer for director Jean-Marc Vallée’s (Dallas Buyers Club) new movie. Check it out below.

Reminds me of 2007′s Into The Wild starring Emile Hirsch – another true story.

Wild is based on the bestselling memoir by Cheryl Strayed.

With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision.

With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.

Also starring Gaby Hoffman and Laura Dern, Wild opens in theaters on December 5.

Watch Reese Witherspoon enter the Wild in trailer for Jean-Marc Vallee film

10 July 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Reese Witherspoon stars as Cheryl Strayed in Wild, the newest film from Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallee.

The film is a true story based on the best-selling memoir Stryaed who documented her self-destruction from heroin and the collapse of her marriage after her mother’s death left her devastated.   At a cross-roads in her life and on a quest for her own forgiveness, Strayed set out to walk a thousand miles on a solo trek across the Pacific Crest Trail from Mojave Desert in California to Washington State.  With no prior hiking or backpacking experience, Staryed’s journey through self-discovery and healing leads her closer to nature and the root of her personal demons.

Wild might remind you of that other personal journey, Into the Wild which saw Emile Hirsch slog through the Alaskan wilderness on a hitchhiking journey.  Like that film, Wild’s Strayed encounters several colourful characters »

Lone Survivor Blu-ray Review

4 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

‘Tis the season for red, white and blue patriotism, which finds perfect cinematic expression in the pro-American military thriller Lone Survivor, which recently debuted on Blu-ray.  Based on The New York Times bestselling book “Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of Seal Team 10,” Lone Survivor doesn’t stop to ask any big questions about what we’re doing in the Middle East, let alone offer any Kubrick-ian treatise on the nature of war.  Instead, it simply dramatizes with harrowing effectiveness the true story of four heroic Navy SEALs who fought against the Taliban to the bitter end out of unmitigated love of country and their fellow American soldiers. Hit the jump for my complete Lone Survivor Blu-ray review. Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg (2006 Best Supporting Actor, The Departed) stars in the film as real-life hero and “Lone Survivor” author Marcus Luttrell, a Seal sniper who, »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.
