New trailer for Ben Wheatley’s High-Rise starring Tom Hiddleston

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday we brought you a new poster for High-Rise [take a look here], and now the main trailer has arrived online for Ben Wheatley’s adaptation of J. G. Ballard’s classic British thriller which stars Tom Hiddleston. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

High-Rise centers on a new residential tower built on the eve of Thatcher’s England, at the site of what will soon become the world’s financial hub. Designed as a luxurious solution to the problems of the city, it is a world apart.

1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. »

What happens when Mick Jagger visits a TV show writers room?

12 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When Bobby Cannavale turned up midway through the run of Terence Winter's HBO gangster epic Boardwalk Empire, the most surprising thing was that they somehow hadn't worked together before, whether on earlier Boardwalk seasons or during Winter's long run as David Chase's top lieutenant on The Sopranos. The half-Italian, half-Cuban actor has been no stranger to crime stories in his career (including a role on NBC's would-be Sopranos drama Kingpin), but the Boardwalk role of animalistic sociopath Gyp Rosetti (for which he would win an Emmy) was his first time working with Winter, and also with Boardwalk executive producer Martin Scorsese. Now, all three men have teamed up with, of all people, Mick Jagger, for Vinyl, HBO's new Sunday drama, where Cannavale plays Richie Finestra, a '70s record company executive with a great ear and a nose too prone to having cocaine shoved up it.

10 Actresses Who Made An Unexpected Splash In Popular Franchises

17 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

From comic book romps to space-bound cinema sagas, fans are very protective of their favourite franchises. Most likely whoever is reading this has a strong idea of who should play what in the multitude of graphic novels, fiction ranges, TV shows and movie reboots yet to be squeezed from the cash cow’s teat.

It causes consternation on a volcanic level when a creative team is chosen to adapt the property, and you can practically feel the lava spattering when the casting is announced. Often there’s a warm welcome – I don’t think many would have had a problem with Emily Blunt as Black Widow. Then when she dropped out and Scarlett Johansson entered the frame there weren’t exactly riots in the streets.

Producers tread a fine line between getting someone photogenic in to ensure the male demographic get their asses on seats and honouring the source material. »

Comedy Community Feeds Charity at Beefsteak Dinner

8 February 2016 4:19 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hollywood’s funniest and hungriest actors, writers and executives got together Saturday night at Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles for the fifth annual Beefsteak dinner to benefit the Los Angeles Food Bank.

Organized by “The Simpsons” producer Matt Selman, ABC Studios comedy exec Cort Cass and writer-actor Eric Wareheim, the yearly event raises money for the hungry by feeding approximately 650 entertainment bizzers plenty of meat, in the tradition of the early-20th century beefsteak political dinners. Guests included “Mad Men’s” Ben Feldman, B.J. NovakPhil Rosenthal, Busy Philipps, Bob Odenkirk, Brianna Brown and John Mayer.

Unlike the last century’s men-only dinners, women are welcome at the 21st century version, which featured Jonathan Sadowski and Joe Thomas doing magic tricks and music from the Shrines and DJ Jesse Kivel. While the dancing acrobatic cows of last year’s event didn’t make a return appearance, an actual onstage wedding added to the celebratory atmosphere. »

Alejandro G. Inarritu wins DGA Award for The Revenant, full list of winners here

7 February 2016 10:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For the second year in a row (and the first time they’ve ever handed out back-to-back awards), the Directors Guild of America has honoured Alejandro G. Inarritu with the top prize at the Directors Guild of America Awards, with Inarittu collecting Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Feature Film for The Revenant.

Inarritu won the DGA Award last year for Birdman, and went on to collect the Best Director award at the Oscars. Should he repeat the feat this year with The Revenant, he’d become only the third director in history to win back-to-back Best Director Academy Awards after John Ford and Joseph Mankiewicz.

And, should The Revenant also win Best Picture, it would be the first time a director has ever won back-to-back Oscars for Best Director and Best Picture.

Here’s the full list of winners from last night:

Film Bitch Awards: Diva and Sexpot Nominations

6 February 2016 3:21 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I'm working on the character page portion of the awards. Today write-ups for the Diva and Sexpot of the year with nominees from Magic Mike Xxl, Saint Laurent, Spy and more. Hero & Villain categories coming shortly.

Bear in mind that I don't let characters cross over into more than one category lest they dominate too many categories so, for instance, you won't see Lysistrata from Chi-Raq under Best Diva, though she is one because she fits the Sexpot category to a T (and A). She owns it. And she's not giving it away. "No Peace. No Pussy." 

The film doesn't work at all if you don't see how badly Chi-Raq (Nick Cannon), her gang leader boyfriend, wants that "nappy pouch". Teyonah Parris is on in this movie and it's so hard to believe it's the same actress that played quiet confident Dawn in Mad Men, just trying to earn her »

David Tennant starring in R. D. Laing biopic Mad to Be Normal

5 February 2016 1:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from his role as the villainous Kilgrave in Marvel’s Jessica Jones, David Tennant is now in production on Mad to Be Normal, a biopic of world-renowned Scottish psychiatrist R. D. Laing, which sees him starring alongside Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Michael Gambon (Gosford Park) and Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects).

“I have long been fascinated by the life and work of R. D. Laing,” Tennant tells Screen International. “This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate and discover this important man and I am honoured and thrilled to be involved in telling this story. Robert Mullan’s passion for the subject is inspiring and the presence of the brilliant Elisabeth Moss makes this something I cannot wait to start work on.”

Mad to Be Normal is being directed by Robert Mullan (Letters to Sofija, Gitel, We Will Sing), who has also previously written three books about Laing.

Matt Zoller Seitz on 4 Classic Films That Inspired Mad Men

4 February 2016 1:45 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men draws inspiration from many cinematic sources, ranging from The Best of Everything and The Americanization of Emily to La Notte and Carnal Knowledge. I’m spotlighting four of my favorites this weekend at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco, as part of a miniature film festival titled Mad Men Weekend. (For dates and showtimes, click here.) I wrote and narrated four video essays, presented below, about the films on the schedule: Sweet Smell of Success (1957), The Apartment (1960), Seconds (1966), and Swimmer (1968). (The latter was cut by Nelson Carvajal, while Serena Bramble put together the rest.) I’ll be at each screening, signing copies of my Mad Men book, and because I like to overcomplicate everything, “performing” the narration of each video live. This will, I hope, add another layer of interest to the proceedings. Even if audiences could not care less what I have to say about these films, »

The Top 10 Christina Hendricks Moments on Mad Men

4 February 2016 12:59 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The cast of AMC’s Mad Men was filled with incredibly talented actors, and by far, one of the very best was Christina Hendricks. As Joan Holloway (who would become Joan Harris, after marrying her horrible husband Greg—but more on him later), Hendricks was a beacon of beauty and grace but also of strength and determination. Throughout Mad Men‘s seven seasons, Joan dealt with many challenges, from how she was treated in the workplace to how she was treated in her own marriage, but she persevered through it all, knowing that her intelligence, hard work, and creativity would help give her the life that

Christina Hendricks: I Didn't Think Mad Men Would Ever Get Picked Up

31 January 2016 | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Turns out, not everyone predicted Mad Men would be the smash hit it is today. When Christina Hendricks first auditioned for her role as Joan Holloway on the AMC drama, she never expected that the show would be such a success. "I didn't think it was going to get picked up because it was on AMC and they had no TV shows and it was a period piece," she admitted to E! News on the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet. "So I was like, 'This'll be a fun pilot to do.' " "Nine years later ..." she said with a laugh. »
