Can Meryl Streep actually win a fourth Oscar for 'Into the Woods?'

23 November 2014 1:52 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We really shouldn't be having this conversation. It's just too soon. Isn't it? When Meryl Streep won her third Academy Award for "The Iron Lady," the collective media mindset was that the acting icon had finally joined the three-timer club and any other nominations from that point on would be icing on the cake. A fourth Oscar win? Considering how many times she'd been overlooked since winning no. 2 for "Sophie's Choice" in 1982, it just didn't seem realistic that it would happen anytime soon or at all. Even after landing another Best Actress nod for "August: Osage County," the concept of Streep conceivably winning another statue just didn't register. That is, until now. To say that Streep is the standout in Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods" is somewhat of an understatement. Chris Pine does steal almost every scene he's in as the Prince (more on that in a moment), but »

‘Imitation Game’ No Pretender At UK Box Office

21 November 2014 6:05 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The Imitation Game has played a huge part in reclaiming the priceless contribution made by Alan Turing during World War II, with Benedict Cumberbatch deservedly receiving strong notices for his performance as the brilliant and tragic scientist.

For a film that celebrates mathematical genius, it is perhaps fitting that some new analysis is revealing just how stellar its UK box office opening has been. Morten Tyldum’s film outperformed expectations with its eye-catching debut for Studio Canal at the UK box office — the first territory the film has been released in — with $4.2 million from 465 theatres and counting.

That starry opening is even more impressive considering it came out against strong holdover Interstellar, still holding on to the top spot. The Imitation Game achieved a very high 90% “definite recommend” from its core audience, according to exit poll figures. Its opening was 107% higher that that of Argo, 81% higher than Philomena and 26% higher »

Oscars: 9 Under-the-Radar Performances that Deserve Buzz

30 October 2014 6:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you believe the awards season chatter, the Oscar race is practically over—even though the season is only beginning. There’s already been a lot of talk about the frontrunners this year (from “The Imitation Game’s” Benedict Cumberbatch to “Wild’s” Reese Witherspoon). But the Academy always throws some curveballs into the mix come January. Here are nine under-the-radar performances that deserve a fighting chance in this year’s Oscar race.

Channing Tatum

Best Actor, “Foxcatcher

The trio of male performances in “Foxcatcher”—from Channing Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo—are all worthy of Oscar nominations. But the problem is, where do you put each actor? Sony Pictures Classics had decided to campaign Tatum and Carell in lead and Ruffalo in supporting, but I fear the strongest performance in the film may slip through the cracks. Carell has gotten a lot of ink for his portrayal of lunatic millionaire John du Pont. »

Paddington Movie Releases New Featurette

22 October 2014 11:06 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Arriving in theaters on January 16, 2015, the actors and filmmakers from the upcoming Paddington movie discuss the lovely Peruvian bear in this brand new featurette.

From the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (Harry Potter), Paddington tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home.

Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined – until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says “Please look after this bear. Thank you,” and offer him a temporary haven.

It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

Paddington brings together an all-star cast, with Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey, Monuments Men) and Sally Hawkins (Made in Dagenham, Blue Jasmine) as Mr. »

A Little House On The Prairie Movie Is Happening, Here's The Latest

10 October 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Seventies TV shows seem to be rife for adaptation in our modern age of cinematic product, but they don't always guarantee the nostalgic drive they seek to inspire. For every Charlie's Angels there's a Starsky And Hutch waiting to piss everyone off. Yet somehow, a movie reboot of Little House On The Prairie isn't the worst idea that could be floated past our very eyes. According to a scoop from The Hollywood Reporter, director Sean Durkin, the man who brought Martha Marcy May Marlene to the screen back in 2011, is negotiating to head up the project based on a script by The Iron Lady scribe Abi Morgan. Scott Rudin is producing, and the film is being set up with Sony as the studio backing it. The original Little House On The Prairie series ran from 1974 to 1983. It adapted the autobiographical works of Laura Ingalls Wilder, as she recalled her childhood »

Oscar Season Gift From The Academy As Stunning Hollywood Costume Exhibit Premieres At Future Site Of Movie Museum

It may not be the Grand Opening celebration that the Academy of Motion Pictures Art & Sciences is going to be throwing when they  launch the long-awaited Academy  Museum Of Motion Pictures at some point in 2017 as is now planned,  but the Los Angeles debut of the much-acclaimed Hollywood Costume exhibit imported by the Academy  from the Victoria And Albert Museum in London  is really  something to see.  The Academy’s Ellen Harrington told me at Wednesday night’s opening event (in the space at Wilshire and Fairfax  that will eventually become the Acad’s Museum ) that it took them months just  to get it in the kind of shape needed to house this remarkable exhibit celebrating the art of costume design and its vital importance, in so many ways, to the art  of movies.  With over 150 costumes including 40 newly added ones just for the Los Angeles version this is an »

Quiz: Biographies, biopics and based on a true story

28 July 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

James Brown is the latest figure to have his life story turned into a biopic in this week’s Get On Up, starring Chadwick Boseman (42) and the late singer. 

Biopics are an actor’s gateway to an Oscar nomination and those that play characters based on real people are often counted as the frontrunner in the awards race.  Biographical reenactments are often counted as the highest form of acting talent with great scrutiny to not only the look of the real-life character but also sound and mannerisms of said person.  Just look at previous winner Daniel Day-Lewis.  Much was made about his uncanny resemblance to Honest Abe in Lincoln, and there was just as much debate over his choice to play Lincoln with a somewhat high-pitched voice.

Since 2000, over 35 performances in biopics have been nominated across the four acting categories at the Academy Awards.   Winning roles have included famous people »
