9 September 2014 9:40 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The HBO miniseries adaptation of Elizabeth Strout’s novel, Olive Kitteridge, premiered recently at Venice Film Festival, where Frances McDormand was honored with a Visionary award.  The four part series stars Frances McDormand as the titular character and features an outstanding cast of Richard Jenkins, Bill Murray, Rosemarie DeWitt and Ann Dowd. The series is brought to screen by The Kids Are All Right director Lisa Cholodenko and tells the story of a cold abrasive Math teacher and her mild mannered husband as they live together in a sleepy coastal town in Maine.

The teaser trailer does not reveal too much about the actual plot of the miniseries but looks very promising with a gloomy yet hopeful tone featuring music performed by singer Martha Wainwright. Watch the teaser trailer below.

The first two parts of the miniseries will premiere on November 2nd 2014 to be followed the next night with the closing two installments, »

NBC Drama Miniseries The Slap Lands Zachary Quinto And Brian Cox

9 September 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Based on the 2011 Australian miniseries of the same, the Americanised version of The Slap has a couple of new additions to its impressive cast. Zachary Quinto (Heroes, American Horror Story) and Brian Cox (Manhunter) have signed on to co-star in this modern morality tale. Set around an altercation at a family barbeque, the story involves the repercussions after one man slaps a badly behaving child. The kid’s not his, hence the heightened social responsibility aspect, that’s no doubt gonna make Christmas well awkward.

Quinto is in line to play the slapper (ahem), Harry. A married man with a teenage boy, he deals in antiquated European cars. And it would seem punishment, as well. Cox will play the family’s gruff old-time grandpa, Manolis. They’ll both co-star opposite Peter Sarsgaard as Hector, a married man with kids who submits to the advances of a much younger woman; and Mary Louise Parker, »

Tiff 2014: In shapes of all kinds, Mark Ruffalo hits a stride

7 September 2014 7:53 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Mark Ruffalo is transforming.

With a string of films, from the lauded AIDS drama The Normal Heart to the musical rebirth tale Begin Again to the upcoming wrestling drama Foxcatcher, the man many know as the Hulk has muscled together a shape-shifting string of roles.

"You push and you work hard, you stay positive and eventually all the stars sort of align," Ruffalo said in an interview. "I feel like I'm kind of in one of those moments where everything converges at one time. It's been an interesting few years for me and kind of tough, just my inner-life. I feel like I had kind of a midlife thing going on. People close to me died. It's just been a really reflective time and a growing time, so where I'm at right now feels like, 'Ok, I'm coming out of the other side of that and I survived it.' »

To Date, Academy Has Had Only 3 Female Presidents; Today, Stronger Female Presence in Board of Governors

4 September 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Women presidents at AMPAS: Cheryl Boone Isaacs follows Bette Davis, Fay Kanin (photo: Angelina Jolie, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, Brad Pitt) (See previous post: "Honorary Oscars Non-Winners: Gloria Swanson, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich.") Wrapping up this four-part "Honorary Oscars Bypass Women" article, let it be noted that in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 85-year history only two of its presidents have been women: two-time Oscar-winning actress Bette Davis (for two months in 1941, before the Dangerous and Jezebel star was forced to resign) and screenwriter Fay Kanin (1979-1983), whose best-known screen credit is the 1958 Doris Day-Clark Gable comedy Teacher’s Pet. Additionally, following some top-level restructuring in April 2011, the Academy created the positions of Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer; the former is currently held by a woman, former Film Independent executive director and sometime actress Dawn Hudson, »

Infinitely Polar Bear Capsule Review [Tiff 2014]

4 September 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Editor’S Note: This is a capsule review. The full review will be released once the film hits theatres.

Maya Forbes’ big-screen memoir, Infinitely Polar Bear, is a movie about family that is also sweet enough to be a family film. Dedicated to the writer/director’s parents, it is one of the more accessible titles available that deals with manic depression and mental illness. However, that should not be a slight against it. An outstanding cast, led by a superb Mark Ruffalo and scene-stealing turns from the two newcomers who play his stubborn-headed daughters, elevate the film’s somewhat digestible portrait of bipolar disorder.

Ruffalo plays Cameron Stuart, a free-spirited kid raised with a silver spoon but later kicked out of Harvard. On campus in the late 1960s, he met the bohemian Maggie (Zoe Saldana) with whom he soon started a family. When Cameron comes out of the hospital, »

Oscar Hopefuls Don’t Need a Boost From Festival Season

2 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »


By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Telluride is over, Toronto is on its way, awards buzz is growing and the fight is on for Oscar hopefuls. It’s just another fall in the film world.

Since opening the 71st Venice Film Festival and making its North American premiere at Telluride, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu‘s Birdman has affirmed its place in the Oscar race with rave reviews both overseas and here in the States.

Bennett Miller has made two feature films — Moneyball (2011) and Capote (2005) — that received Oscar nominations for best picture and premiered at one of the fall festivals, Moneyball in Toronto and Capote at Telluride. His third feature Foxcatcher made its American debut at Telluride to high praise, echoing the sentiments from Cannes.

These are just a few of the fall premieres vying for an Oscar nomination, but what about the movies that have made their theatrical debut before September? Sundance takes places in January, »

Review: Frances McDormand's new mini-series 'Olive Kitteridge' is a perfect storm of talent

2 September 2014 12:59 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Venice - My goodness, but "Olive Kitteridge" makes creating great TV look as simple as following a recipe. Let's say you want to create a truly wonderful miniseries. A good place to start would be picking great source material that nevertheless comes without too much cultural baggage or a mouthy fandom. An excellent and recent Pulitzer winning novel by Elizabeth Strout would seem to fit the bill. You want great performances? Easy, let's employ some great leads. Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins, Bill Murray and Zoe Kazan should do for starters. Oh, you want great support too? Fine, simply round out the cast with the likes of Peter Mullan, John Gallagher Jr. and Brady Corbet. Of course you'll need a director. Apparently Lisa Cholodenko of "The Kids Are All Right" fame is free. Perfect. Jeffrey M. Werner, the editor Cholodenko worked with on that self same film, is available too. And for your cinematographer, »

Matthew Weiner On Directing His 2nd Film: “Everyone Always Knew This Was An Independent Film”

19 August 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

After several cast changes and an eight-year journey to the screen, Matthew Weiner’s feature directorial Are You Here finally made its Hollywood premiere last night at the Arclight on Sunset Blvd. This Friday, Millennium Entertainment will unspool the film, which stars Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis and Amy Poehler, in limited theaters as well as on DVD.

“Like most of what I do, this is a genre-less film,” Weiner told the audience before the projector rolled, “Laugh where you want to laugh.”

Despite his reputation for creating the monumental, award-winning period TV drama  Mad Men, Weiner’s uphill battle to get Are You Here made further underscores the challenges of getting adult feature dramas off the ground.  With its comedic star wattage cast and a set-up that involves a crazed stoner (Galifianakis) inheriting a farm after his father’s death with his weatherman philandering friend along for the ride (Wilson »

13 August 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Breaking: A new major independent film distributor has emerged, just in time for Toronto. Andrew Karpen, the longtime co-ceo of Focus Features, has unveiled Bleecker Street, a New York-based distribution company that has backing from 5-Hour Energy founder Manoj Bhargava.

Schlessel took the reins of that company and kept some key Focus executives like Jeb Brody, who has been running point on the label’s biggest film Fifty Shades Of Grey. Schlessel wanted to keep Karpen, but after initially running FilmDistrict with key execs Bob and Jeanne Berney on the opposite coast, »

Scandal’s” Dan Bucatinsky stopped by the opening night of L.A.’s Outfest Film Festival to show support to the Lgbt community and to talk Emmys and his life after “Scandal.”

Bucatinsky won the Emmy last year for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for “Scandal,” but this year the Academy did not recognize the actor for his role as James Novak.

“I was snubbed,” he laughed. But the actor did give his congrats to former castmates Joe Morton, Kate Burton and Kerry Washington.

“’Scandal’ is something that was one of the most important career moves of my life and it was incredible. The cast will always be family to me,” he told Variety.

But life after “Scandal” looks promising for Bucatinsky, whose TLC show with writing partner Lisa Kudrow “Who Do You Think You Are?” received an Emmy nod yesterday.

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.

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »
