First poster and trailer for Inherent Vice

5 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a few images from the film over the past few weeks, but now we have the first poster and trailer for Inherent Vice, the latest highly-anticipated offering from writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood), and you can check them out right here…

Inherent Vice is the seventh feature from Paul Thomas Anderson and the first ever film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel. When private eye Doc Sportello’s ex-old lady suddenly out of nowhere shows up with a story about her current billionaire land developer boyfriend whom she just happens to be in love with, and a plot by his wife and her boyfriend to kidnap that billionaire and throw him in a looney bin…well, easy for her to say. It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of »

Recap: 'Boardwalk Empire' Season 5, Episode 4 ‘Cuanto’

16 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Directed by Jake Paltrow (“Young Ones”), this episode of "Boardwalk Empire" elegantly unfurls the flashback's of Nucky's youth and there’s a lot of nuance and sweetness throughout the episode. As the young Enoch (Marc Pickering) awakens to his surroundings —the wealth, the privilege, the status— he is summarily laid off. Summer's over, the tourists are leaving the Boardwalk and there's no reason to keep on a boy paid to sweep up their mess. "Don't enter a room like a question mark," the Commodore (John Ellison Conlee) scowls at Enoch's meek bearing. The boy is getting life lessons everyday about how the world works, and through the Commodore’s actions, we bear witness in reverse to Nucky Thompson becoming the man he is and where he got his outlook on life. The Commodore keeps the boy on his toes. When he tells him the job is over, he asks Nucky derisively, »

TV Review: Netflix’s ‘Peaky Blinders’

17 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Handsome but hollow, “Peaky Blinders” is another one of those classy-looking British imports that networks and streaming services (in this case, Netflix) are using to help keep their shelves stocked. Yet while that worked extremely well with the recent “Happy Valley,” despite the meticulous period trappings this feels like a slightly wan wannabe – in part because there’s scant connection with any of the characters. Featuring Cillian Murphy and Sam Neill in the marquee roles, it’s a respectable but chilly effort, fine for those who choose to invest the time but hardly a loss should one turn a blind eye.

In one sense, the program approximates the British answer to “Boardwalk Empire,” coming as it does on the heels of World War I. But if you have the first, frankly, there’s not much need for the second, and the tone is actually somewhat closer to “Gangs of New York, »

Boardwalk Empire, Ep. 5.04: “Cuanto” is Margaret’s finest hour

29 September 2014 1:34 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Boardwalk Empire, Season 5, Episode 4: “Cuanto”

Written by Howard Korder & Cristine Chambers & Terence Winter

Directed by Jake Paltrow

Airs Sundays at 9pm Est on HBO

With “Cuanto” we mark the halfway point of the final season, and its first major death. As fans of Boardwalk will attest, though, the only real surprise was that it took as long as it did. If you were running the numbers in Vegas, or Atlantic City for that matter, the odds would come up quick that there will likely be a lot more to come. If only Arnold Rothstein was still around to roll the dice on that one.

Speaking of Rothstein, his former business partner arrived as the game-changer in last weeks episode, leaving this week to make good. Luckily she does at that. In fact, Margaret emerges as the star of the show in “Cuanto”, and it’s not hard to see why. »

Review: 'Boardwalk Empire' - 'Cuanto'

28 September 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Boardwalk Empire" coming up just as soon as my wheat farm goes belly up... "Partners in crime." -Nucky "Cuanto" brings us to the midway point of this shortened final season, and it's easily the liveliest of the four we've gotten so far. The hour deals a lot with partnerships being formed, or rekindled — or, more often than not, with failed reunion attempts — and as such not only deals a lot with the series' history (Van Alden's arrest of Luciano and Jimmy in season 1, Nucky and Margaret's first meeting), but gives us several terrific character combinations in both Atlantic City and Chicago, along with the best of the young Nucky flashbacks to date. As I noted last week, the sum of the Nucky/Margaret pairing has always been greater than the sum of its two parts, and we got a long, potent and entertaining reminder of that here. »

Exclusive: Marks the first feature from commercials director Rohan Blair-Mangat.

Shooting has begun in New York City on The Boombox Project, the first feature from award-winning commercials director Rohan Blair-Mangat.

Further locations in the documentary’s multi-territory shoot will include Miami, Los Angeles, London, Brazil and Tokyo.

The documentary explores how an iconic piece of machinery helped shape music and society on both sides of the Atlantic in the ’70s and ’80s, examining its place in the rise of hip-hop and punk.

New Poster For Promising Romcom Posthumous

25 September 2014 6:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Could it be that we are about to see a romantic comedy that is actually a fresh and original idea? I don’t want to get ahead of myself here but, even though my instincts dictate a cautious approach, I cannot help but be optimistic about Posthumous – the feature length debut of writer-director Lulu Wang, starring Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) and Brit Marling (The East) – for which we now have a poster.

The film introduces us to Liam Price (Huston) – a struggling artist in Berlin. When false reports of his death send the popularity of his name and his work skyrocketing, he decides to perpetuate and benefit from the myth by posing as his own brother. His plan hits an obstacle, however, when he begins to fall for McKenzie Grain (Marling) – a reporter assigned to cover the story.

Agent Carter Gains Boardwalk Empire Actor Shea Whigham

24 September 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The fall television season may have just officially begun, with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. among the first series out the gate, but our eyes and attention are set on another Marvel show heading our way: Agent Carter. Much like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Agent Carter will tell the human side of the fantastical and super-powered Marvel Cinematic Universe, but is set in the past, with Hayley Atwell front and center. I don’t know about you, but I’ll take that over Agent Coulson and his band of Hydra-weary agents any day.

Atwell reprises her role of the titular Agent Peggy Carter, who’s appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, her own eponymous Marvel One-Shot short film, this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Tuesday’s season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The series picks up after the events of The First Avenger, with Carter working as »

Visual Effects Replace Woman’s Face on ‘The Knick’

23 September 2014 7:39 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Perhaps no facial transformation is more disturbing than the absence of a nose, and the creators of Cinemax’s “The Knick” used such an image to maximum effect in a recent episode.

The original drama series, set in New York’s Knickbocker Hospital in 1900, tracks the life and work of pioneering surgeons and staff who push the boundaries of medicine before the age of antibiotics – or cosmetic reconstruction.

The producers relied on visual effects to create a face replacement for Abigail, a character played by Jennifer Ferrin, substituting the actor’s nose with a CG version to simulate a visage disfigured by Syphilis.

“We solved a tricky series of shots together using a combination of CGI, special effects prosthetic elements and compositing,” said vfx supervisor Lesley Robson-Foster, who’s worked on effects for “The Great Gatsby” and “Boardwalk Empire.” “Abigail’s nose was a real challenge. I was very pleased with the result, »

(Cbr) Omar’s comin’, and he has his eye on Marvel’s Black Panther. Michael K. Williams, best known for his portrayals of Omar Little on "The Wire" and Chalky White on "Boardwalk Empire," reveals that while he hasn’t been approached yet about a starring role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he definitely has those ambitions. “And I’m saying ‘yet’ with a lot of emphasis,” the actor tells Cinema Blend. “But hopefully I’m looking forward to being a part of the franchise.” Asked which character he’d like to play, Williams, who grew up reading comics, smiled and said “Black Panther.” “Yeah, definitely.” The actor actually had a cameo as a Harlem bystander in 2008′s "The Incredible Hulk," a part written for him by Edward Norton, a fan of "The Wire."

23 September 2014 3:56 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

HBO has decided that the fifth season will be the end of Boardwalk Empire. Will this be the show's most popular season yet? Will the cable channel regret ending the show or is the time right?

In the final season of Boardwalk Empire, the end of Prohibition is near and Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) looks to legitimize himself through alliances with liquor producers. Rivals Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza) and Meyer Lansky seek to consolidate their power and eliminate all competition -- by any means necessary. The rest of the cast includes Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Stephen Graham, Michael Kenneth Williams, Gretchen Mol, Paul Sparks, Jeffrey Wright, Anatol Yusef, Patricia Arquette, and Ben Rosenfield.
