The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Four

27 December 2010 9:58 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Damsels in Distress

Opens: 2011

Cast: Adam Brody, Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Ryan Metcalf

Director: Whit Stillman

Summary: The story revolves around a group of style-obsessed college girls who take in a new student (Gerwig) and teach her their misguided ways of helping people at their grungy university.

Analysis: The first film in a decade from arthouse darling Whit Stillman, a filmmaker's filmmaker whose three Manhattan-based, yuppie-themed mannerist comedies - "Metropolitan," "Barcelona" and "The Last Days of Disco" - were a big influence on the likes of auteurs such as Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach. Stillman says this film varies somewhat from his previous trilogy of sorts, telling First Things that "This film is different, Completely different. Okay, not completely different, but it’s different".

Independently financed by Castle Rock CEO Martin Shafer, the project recently wrapped filming in Manhattan where Stillman returned to last year after having spent much »

Owf’s 52 Must See Films of 2011

24 December 2010 11:00 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Usually around this time of the year we list maybe 10 or 20 films that we think are as absolute ‘Must See’s’ for what the next 12 months of cinema has to offer us but as the clock is ticking ever closer to midnight on 2010, we thought we would challenge ourselves a little further this time around. The question I posed to the Owf staff recently was… can Cinema in 2011 produce enough ‘Must See’ films to hit 52, which would ratio out to be just one film per week? That’s all we are hopeful for here… just one film every Friday that justifies us parting with our ever increasingly important cash in these tough economic times.

Did we manage to find 52? Kind of.

There’s certainly 52 films listed here but once we got to around 30, the whole thing became a struggle and we had to fill it out disappointingly with the usual array of over-budgeted summer spectacles, »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Three

22 December 2010 9:59 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Catch .44

Opens: 2011

Cast: Forest Whitaker, Bruce Willis, Malin Akerman, Nikki Reed, Deborah Ann Woll

Director: Aaron Harvey

Summary: The story focuses on three women being thrust into an extraordinary situation involving a psychopathic hitman, a grizzled trucker and a delusional line cook.

Analysis: Oddly little is known about this indie crime comedy aside from the three lead female roles have gone through more than a couple of rounds of casting musical chairs. The likes of Maggie Grace, Kate Mara, Laura Ramsey, Sarah Roemer, Lizzy Caplan and Lauren German were all attached at one point or another before the final trio of Malin Akerman ("Watchmen"), Nikki Reed ("Twilight") and Deborah Ann Woll ("True Blood") were settled on.

Bruce Willis, Forest Whitaker, Michael Rosenbaum and Brad Dourif also star with Willis as a crime boss behind everything that happens and Whitaker as a dangerously unstable assassin. Aaron Harvey, who last directed »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

Daniel Day-Lewis set for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln film

19 November 2010 11:40 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Daniel Day-Lewis is to take the lead in the director's biopic of the American president Abraham Lincoln, replacing Liam Neeson

Forget advance buzz of the 2011 Oscars; today it's all about laying your bets for the 2013 Academy Awards, as news emerged that Daniel Day-Lewis is to play the iconic president Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's oft-delayed biopic.

Spielberg and Dreamworks co-chairman and CEO Stacey Snider made the announcement four months after their previous leading man, Liam Neeson, withdrew from the project in July, citing his age as too large an obstacle.

"Daniel Day-Lewis would have always been counted as one of the greatest of actors, were he from the silent era, the golden age of film or even some time in cinema's distant future," Spielberg said today. "I am grateful and inspired that our paths will finally cross with Lincoln."

Based on the book Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin, »

Justin Long injured in car accident, misses “Conspirator” premiere

4 November 2010 3:11 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Robert Redford’s Civil War courtroom thriller “The Conspirator” screened at the Savannah Film Festival last night. It was the fest’s Director’s Choice, a screening that is kept secret from the general public until the moment the curtain opens.

But one of the film’s cast members who was supposed to be in town to help promote the film couldn’t make it because he was in a car accident.

Justin Long, who plays a Union soldier and compatriot to James McAvoy, was injured in a car accident in Los Angeles and received a minor concussion, preventing him from traveling to Savannah for the fest.

“He’s completely fine now,” a source told People magazine.

Redford’s drama was filmed in Savannah, and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. It tells the story of Mary Surrat (Robin Wright), a woman who »

The Conspirator Review: Redford's Latest Feels Like a Time-Traveling 'Law & Order' Episode (Sff)

4 November 2010 2:30 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Filed under: Reviews, Coming Soon, Cinematical, Festivals

Since making his Oscar-winning directorial debut in 1980 with 'Ordinary People,' Robert Redford has made films that exude increasingly glossy respectability. Admittedly, 'A River Runs Through It' is a gorgeous movie and 'Quiz Show' certainly has some amazing moments, but as a filmmaker Redford's choices haven't aggressively (much less memorably) gone against expectations; he's even recruited (or molded) multiple leading men (Brad Pitt, Ralph Fiennes, Matt Damon) to embody his sun-dappled, all-American image in stories for which he would have been perfectly-suited in decades past.

But while he thankfully hasn't entirely succumbed to "old-man movies" while attempting to craft thoughtful, pretty, adult-oriented entertainment, he continues to lose (or fails to communicate) the passion he feels for the material itself. And 'The Conspirator,' his latest, is a disappointingly lifeless political parable - filtered through real details of American history, no less »

Justin Long Bangs His Bean in Car Accident

3 November 2010 4:44 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It turns out Macs do crash sometimes. But Justin Long is "completely fine" now after suffering a mild concussion in a car accident a few days ago, sources confirm to E! News. The L.A. smashup did, however, prevent him from going the distance to the Savannah Film Festival, where he was due to promote his next movie, The Conspirator, in which he plays a one-armed Civil War vet. The Robert Redford-directed film stars Robin Wright as the lone female charged in the plot to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. »

MPAA Ratings: 'For Colored Girls,' 'Tangled'

13 October 2010 10:04 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

The Motion Picture Association of America's Classification and Ratings Administration released their weekly ratings bulletin this morning, which included marks for Tyler Perry's For Colored Girls and Disney's Tangled. Missing from the document was the widely-reported but still technically unofficial Nc-17 rating for Ryan Gosling-Michelle Williams drama Blue Valentine. For Colored Girls received an R rating for "some disturbing violence including a rape, sexual content and language." Perry's first eight features were all awarded PG-13 ratings, so this appears to be a step in a darker direction (it's also the first time Perry has adapted someone else's work). For Colored Girls opens Nov. 5 opposite Due Date and Megamind. Tangled earned a PG for "brief mild violence." Such a rating is a rarity for Disney animated movies. Historically, most of them have been branded G. Tangled is set to debut over Thanksgiving weekend against Burlesque, Faster and Love and Other Drugs. »
