2016 Bechdel Test Breakdown: More Than Half of Top Films Pass New Study

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Of 20 sampled films, 11 fulfill all three requirements of Alison Bechdel’s litmus test for female representation in storytelling, according to a new Bustle survey. The sample pool is admittedly subjective, with a mix of ten of the year’s highest grossing films, and ten of what the author deemed “the most buzzed about films.”

The top-grossing films of 2016 were:

Finding Dory

Captain America: Civil War

“Zootopia”

The Jungle Book

The Secret Life of Pets

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

“Deadpool”

Suicide Squad

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them

Doctor Strange

Read More:

Bustle’s most buzzed about films were:

La La Land

“Arrival”

“Ghostbusters”

“Moana”

“Moonlight”

Manchester By the Sea

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

X-Men: Apocalypse

Bad Moms

The Legend of Tarzan

To pass the so-called Bechdel test, a movie or story must have: At least two named female characters, who have a conversation, about something other than a man. »

2016’s films ranked

13 January 2017 2:47 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This ranking includes only new theatrical releases viewed for the awards year of 2016 (for eligibility for the Academy Awards and the Ofcs and Awfj awards); some films released in the UK without Us releases (and so ineligible for those awards this year) may also be included, for my own bookkeeping purposes. Links go to my review. Numbers after each entry are Date First Viewed/NYC Release Date/London Release Date; year is 2016 unless otherwise noted.

01.03.17: This ranking is not quite final; I will continue to add films and links to reviews through the awards season that ends with the Oscars ceremony on February 26th.

2017 Razzies Nominate Batman v Superman, Assassin's Creed as Worst of the Year

8 January 2017 2:00 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Golden Globe awards are airing tonight on NBC, which in essence kicks off the annual awards season race celebrating the year's best movies. There is also another awards ceremony that hands out awards to the year's "worst" movies, the Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. the Razzies. While we'll likely have to wait a short while for the full nominations to be unveiled, the 2017 Razzies short list has been unveiled, and it seems that Warner Bros.' blockbuster Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has found itself in almost every category.

The nominations short list was unveiled by a YouTube user dubbed "truthhopelove," who took a video showing an email he received which features the 2017 Razzie nominations short list. The email reveals that voting will close on January 16, although the nominations won't be released until a few days later. Traditionally, the Razzie nominations come one day before the Oscar nominations are announced, »

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Leads The Razzie Nominations Shortlist

7 January 2017 12:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As we head into the thick of awards season, it’s time to celebrate all the incredible films that 2016 brought us. La La Land, Moonlight, Manchester by the Sea, Deadpool and Arrival will no doubt find themselves on the lips of many moviegoers over the next few weeks, while talent like Amy Adams, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Adam Driver and Denzel Washington, among others, will also start picking up some serious buzz.

But, as the best of the best start to take up most of the spotlight, there’s another another awards ceremony gearing up to get underway, and it’ll be celebrating very different types of movies and actors/actresses. We are, of course, referring to the Razzie Awards, which shine a light on the worst that the year had to offer. From the biggest losers to performances that were so dull you couldn’t stand to watch them, »

‘War On Everyone’ Exclusive Clip: Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña Are Dirty Cops In John Michael McDonagh’s New Comedy

4 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This year, John Michael McDonagh’s third feature film will finally receive a release after spending all last year on the festival circuit. His new film “War On Everyone” follows two crooked cops — Terry (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bob (Michael Peña) — who frame and blackmail criminals all over town. Looking for the ultimate pay-off, they try to extort a strip-club manager (Caleb Landry Jones) and his eccentric, junkie boss (Theo James), but get more than they bargained for when their hair-brained scheme uncovers a bigger secret.  The film co-stars Malcolm Barrett (“Timeless”), Tessa Thompson (“Dear White People”), David Wilmot (“Six Shooter”), Stephanie Sigman (“Narcos”) and Paul Reiser (“Mad About You”). Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

Hollywood’s Winners and Losers 2016: Why Movie Stars Flailed Next to Strong Women, African Americans, and Animated Heroes

2 January 2017 10:03 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As a year, 2016 is an auld acquaintance that we’d rather be forgot. However, as another familiar trope reminds us, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Here’s my assessment of the year Hollywood coped with change as the industry’s economic underpinnings continued to buckle and sway.

And for the Tl;Dr among us: Those who are able to innovate and adapt thrive. Others face decline.

Winners

Disney is the studio winner by a mile not only in domestic market share ($2.7 billion, 25.3 percent), but its stable of global moneymakers took the studio to more than $7 billion worldwide. Four of the five most profitable movies of the year came from Disney: “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (Lucasfilm), “Captain America: Winter Soldier” (Marvel), “Zootopia” (Disney Animation), and “The Jungle Book” (Disney). And blockbusters “Finding Dory” (Pixar), “Moana” (Disney Animation), and “Doctor Strange” (Marvel) weren’t far behind. »
