A Most Violent Year Trailer and Poster; J.C. Chandor’s Film Starring Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac Opens Dec 31 in NY and L.A.

14 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

J.C. Chandor is definitely on the rise, with a surprising amount of people favoring his dark horse Robert Redford film All Is Lost over Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity juggernaut in last year's "solo and in peril" sweepstakes.  And A Most Violent Year definitely looks like it could be the film that really solidifies his place on the map.  The film is set in New York in 1981 and revolves around “an American immigrant (Oscar Isaac) and his wife (Jessica Chastain) trying to expand their business as violence and corruption threaten to destroy all they have built.” A24 has just released a trailer for the film that's incredibly intense and foreboding and surprisingly successful in making you feel like you know these characters already.  Oscar Isaac is such a chameleon, I had to look twice to make sure this was in fact the same Isacc from Inside Llewyn Davis. And of course »

Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are 'Bourne' again. Are they Hollywood's top actor/director pair?

17 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Fantastic Fest – A Look at the Film, Parties, and Chaos that Await in Austin

15 September 2014 9:26 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The best way to describe how I approach Fantastic Fest is like summer camp. It happens once a year. You get back together with old friends. Yet in this case, this non-traditional camp is for fans of the most bizarre, violent, horrific, and Fantastic movies you could imagine. And even still, Fantastic Fest is so much more. This will be more third time attending Fantastic Fest and We Are Movie Geeks fourth time covering the crazy events that take place in Austin every September. For eight days I will be immersed in a world that is unlike any other film festival I have ever attended. What other festival is going to feature events like an opening night food fight, a karaoke party, a “nerd rap throwdown,” and the signature event at the festival – Fantastic Debates (which includes a verbal debate followed by a literal boxing match). These are just a »

Exclusive The Guest Clip: Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett Discuss Making the Film with Nicolas Winding Refn

15 September 2014 8:33 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you’ve seen Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s work in films like A Horrible Way to Die, You’re Next and V/H/S, their latest, The Guest, will come as quite the surprise because it’s strikingly different in so many respects.  It stars Dan Stevens as David, a guy who shows up at the Peterson family’s door, claiming to be a good friend of their son who died in action.  However, soon after welcoming him into their home, there are some mysterious deaths in town and Anna Peterson (Maika Monroe) suspects they might be connected to David. The Guest does have a fair amount of bloodshed and loads of suspense, but this one’s much more of an action thriller than a horror movie and that was the focus of some of the conversation at The Guest’s Q&A at Sundance Next Fest.  Wingard »

Albert Brooks And Gugu Mbatha-Raw Join Will Smith In NFL Concussion Pic

15 September 2014 8:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the NFL making headlines this week in all the wrong ways, Roger Goodell is probably none too happy to hear that an untitled, Ridley Scott-produced drama about football concussions is moving forward. Recently, Drive actor Albert Brooks joined the film, which is already set to star Will Smith and Alec Baldwin. Additionally, Belle actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who has never been hotter thanks to an acclaimed turn in Beyond the Lights, is in talks for a major role in the project, though specifics on her part have not been revealed.

Brooks, who will next appear in the buzzy J.C. Chandor period drama A Most Violent Year, is set to portray Cyril Wecht. As per Deadline, Wecht is the “chief forensic pathologist who mentors forensic neuropathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith) and encourages him to press his discovery of Cte, the concussion syndrome that has been fatal in contributing to the »

DVD Review – The Two Faces of January (2014)

14 September 2014 11:50 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Two Faces of January, 2014.

Directed by Hossein Amini.

Starring Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac.

Synopsis:

A thriller centered on a con artist, his wife, and a stranger who flee Athens after one of them is caught up in the death of a private detective.

Imbibing the feel and tone of Hitchcockian fear and paranoia these days is as tricky as it ever was to pull off, but first time director and writer of Drive, 47 Ronin and others, Iranian born Hossein Amini has an admirable stab at just that with The Two Faces of January, as he also adapts a screenplay of  Patricia Highsmith’s novel.

The story concerns itself with the tale of the MacFarlands, Chester (Mortensen) and Colette (Dunst) and their seemingly fortunate encounter with a tour guide, Rydal (Isaac), whilst on a sightseeing trip to Athens. It is whilst on this trip that Chester’s »

Albert Brooks Huddles Up for Will Smith's Football Concussion Drama

10 September 2014 7:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The developing, currently untitled football concussion drama starring Will Smith and Alec Baldwin is slowly rounding up a cast as the film from producer Ridley Scott and Parkland director and writer Peter Landesman taking dual roles again. The film is based on the GQ article "Game Brain" from October of 2009, and will follow Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith), the forensic neuropathologist who single-handedly made the first discovery of Cte (or chronic traumatic encephalopathy) in a professional football player and made the affliction known to the public. And now Deadline reports Albert Brooks has joined the cast. More below! Brooks, who has recently starred in Drive and This is 40, will play Cyril Wecht, the chief forensic pathologist who mentors Smith's character and encourages him to press his discovery of Cte.

Albert Brooks Joins Will Smith in NFL Concussion Drama

9 September 2014 6:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Albert Brooks is in talks to star alongside Will Smith and Alec Baldwin in Sony's Untitled Football Project, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw just closing a deal to join the cast as well.

The project is based on the GQ article Game Brain by Jeanne Marie Laskas, which follows Dr. Bennett Omalu as he became the first doctor to find chronic traumatic encephalopathy (Cte) in an NFL player, and brought his discovery to the public's attention.

The project is said to be in the same vein of whistleblower dramas such as The Insider, examining the long-term effects of suffering several concussions throughout a playing career, along with the corporate, cultural and political interest that help fuel the popular sport. No details were given for Albert Brooks and Gugu Mbatha-Raw's characters.

Peter Landesman is directing from his own adapted screenplay, with Ridley Scott, Giannina Facio, Michael Schaefer and Larry Shuman set to produce. »

The 84th Academy Awards: If I had been a voter

9 September 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Once again today I’m going to be taking a look back at a recent Oscar lineup and explaining what my vote would have been in each of the big eight categories we all follow so intently each season. I previously mentioned that potentially I could do this once a week with previous Academy Award ceremonies, and while I’m going to be truing to do that, time will still tell. Again, if nothing else, this gives you an interesting look into my cinematic tastes. Over the course of the year you can sort of get a feel for what my current favorites are, but now we can look to the past a bit more. Alright, here goes nothing: Best Picture – Moneyball The nominees here for this ceremony were The Artist, The Descendants, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Help, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, and War Horse. »

Movie Review – The Guest (2014)

7 September 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Guest, 2014.

Directed by Adam Wingard.

Starring Dan StevensMaika Monroe, Brenden Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser, Lance Reddick, Joel David Moore, and Chase Williamson.

Synopsis:

A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.

Following on from their home invasion genre masher, the brutally brilliant You’re Next, director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett return with The Guest, a thriller that recalls and recaptures the VHS heyday of the 80’s in all of its glory. Staying true to Wingard and Barrett’s style, they take another convention, here it’s the stranger with a mysterious background, then deconstruct it and turn it on its head so the viewer is never quite sure where the story will go next. »

The Guest review

5 September 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the director of You're Next, and starring Downton Abbey alumnus Dan Stevens, The Guest is really rather special...

Trailers are a bit tricky sometimes. Or, to describe the problem with them more aptly, they're sometimes not tricky enough. The marketing for Adam Wingard's latest, The Guest, hasn't given away too many of the surprises to be had in this unclassifiable throwback, but does feel like the early viewers who enjoyed it cold, during its festival run, might have enjoyed it best.

If you've been fortunate enough to avoid the promos, this film opens with a lone man jogging down a highway early one morning and arriving at the home of a family who have recently had a son, Caleb, die in service in Afghanistan. He introduces himself as David, (Dan Stevens) a comrade of Caleb's who is fulfilling his friend's dying wish to check that his family are doing alright. »

Mysterious Facebook Petition Asks Fans to ‘Save’ Paul Schrader Movie

4 September 2014 1:19 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Somewhere, Paul Schrader’s head must be spinning. Again.

Back in 2004, the iconoclastic “Taxi Driver” screenwriter found himself locked in a headline-grabbing battle for creative control when his “Dominion,” a prequel to William Friedkin’s Oscar-winning classic “The Exorcist,” was taken away from him by producers Morgan Creek and subsequently reshot, in its entirety, by director Renny Harlin.

Now, a mysterious Facebook page suggests that Schrader may be encountering similar troubles on his latest directing gig, “The Dying of the Light.” The page, entitled “Save Paul Schrader’s Dying of the Light,” includes a headshot of Schrader, alongside photos of stars Nicolas Cage, Anton Yelchin and Irene Jacob, as well as executive producer Nicolas Winding Refn.

The page’s “about” box reads as follows: “The truth about Dying of the Light…The movie was taken away from Paul Schrader! The movie is now recut and the control of the film was taken away from Mr. »

Watch: Three Lincoln Ads Starring Matthew McConaughey, Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn

4 September 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Good news, everyone! Oscar-winning renaissance man Matthew McConaughey is teaming up with one of the most talked about filmmakers of the last few years, "Drive" helmer Nicolas Winding Refn. Oh, but wait, it's for a series of car commercials. McConaughey and Refn have joined forces for a new campaign for Lincoln, and it's  sort of in the sweet spot for both of them: Refn gets to shoot a handsome man behind a wheel, and McConaughey gets to spout some cod-philosophy in his Rust Cohle manner. We poke fun, but there's actually a sly humor to some of these, mainly when McConaughey faces off against a bull. There's a total of five clips in the campaign, but only three have made their way online, along with the promotional video where McConaughey talks about them. You can watch the clips below, and we'll update this post when the rest come in. »

The Guest Review

1 September 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Adam Wingard

Cast: Dan Stevens, Ethan Embry, Joel David Moore, Lance Reddick, Maika Monroe, Sheila Kelley, Brendan Meyer

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 99 minutes

Synopsis: A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.

Adam Wingard, director of You’Re Next, serves up another plate of uninvited guests with this joyously over the top and violent movie that flits between the slasher genre, with added appreciative nods to the 1980′s. Fans of the film genre will get a kick out of the postmodern elements in Wingard’s latest project and although the film’s trailer doesn’t sell these great qualities, there’s a lot here to admire.
