‘The Intervention’ Exclusive Clip: A Group of Friends Confront a Couple’s Toxic Marriage During a Weekend Getaway

26 August 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Everyone knows a couple whose behavior prompts the question, “How are they still together?” Clea DuVall’s debut feature film “The Intervention” takes that question to the next level by actually staging a couple intervention. The film follows Annie (Melanie Lynskey) and her fiancé Matt (Jason Ritter) who plan a getaway weekend as an excuse to confront Ruby (Cobie Smulders) and Peter (Vincent Piazza) about their toxic relationship. They invite along two other couples — Jessie (DuVall) and Sarah (Natasha Lyonne) and Jack (Ben Schwartz) and his 22-year-old girlfriend Lola (Alia Shawkat) — in order to ease the tension, but everyone’s presence inevitably ratchets up the awkwardness. Soon, problems arise, secrets are revealed, and relationships are tested as they all start to examine their own lives and connections with others. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

The Intervention and There Is a New World Somewhere movies review: women on the verge

25 August 2016 6:18 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Two movies about women at crossroads in their lives explore the sort of personal crisis — lost mojo! — typically reserved for men onscreen. I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Women at crossroads in their lives. Women who feel their worlds falling apart and don’t know what to do about it. Women who’ve lost their mojo… or never even found it in the first place. These are not the sorts of personal crises that we typically see women experiencing onscreen (though men have countless cinematic examples to follow when they find themselves in a rut). So I was delighted to discover two films that fall into the sparsely populated subgenre of Women Who Go in Search of a Kick in the Butt (Though They Might Not Realize That’s What They »

Newswire: Ben Affleck to direct and star in Witness For The Prosecution remake

19 August 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

As reported by Variety, Ben Affleck is in talks to direct and star in a remake of Billy Wilder’s 1957 Agatha Christie adaptation Witness For The Prosecution. The original film was nominated for six Academy Awards, so this project could be a return to the prestige of Argo-era Affleck. You know, back before he was swallowed up by the Justice League movie machine and had to deal with resting a movie’s emotional climax on the realization that his character’s mom and another character’s mom had the same name.

The original Witness For The Prosecution is about a lawyer who is tasked with representing a man accused of murdering a widow who left him a bunch of money in her will, with Affleck most likely playing the lawyer. The remake is being written by Christopher Keyser (Tyrant, Party Of Five), with Affleck, Jennifer Todd, and Affleck ...

Ben Affleck Takes on Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution Remake

19 August 2016 1:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ben Affleck is quickly becoming one of the busiest men in Hollywood, and seems to be gettin' while the gettin' is good. He is currently busy reprising his role as Batman for Zack Snyder in Justice League and has already signed on to direct a solo Batman movie for Warner Bros. Now it looks like he is going to be taking on yet another directing project not involving a superhero. This time, it will be an adaptation of the Agatha Christie story Witness for the Prosecution.

Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox is closing the deal with Ben Affleck, who will both direct and star in the movie. Witness for the Prosecution was originally written as a short story by Christie, and was adapted to the big screen in 1957 by Some Like It Hot director Billy Wilder. That version was received very well, having been nominated for Six Academy awards, »

Comic Book Reviews: DC Round-Up Week 08-17-2016

Comic Book Reviews: DC Round Up Week 08-17-2016

DC Comics has been killing it with sales lately, and for good reason! The Rebirth has been a success with almost every series delivering well-written and illustrated stories. Whatever editorial direction Geoff Johns put the company on, it’s worked! The characters feel fresh and new again, while still keeping true to the status quo set up in the New 52 Universe. Could the books do a slightly better job at feeling more “interconnected” (No that doesn’t mean crossover!)? Sure! But regardless, each individual series feels very well put together and on a focused plot. So without further delay, check out the hot books from this week’s DC Comics Rebirth line up!

Ben Affleck’s ‘Live By Night’ May Enter Year-End Oscar Derby

16 August 2016 12:42 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

In late summer, studios check out rough cuts for movies that might be finished in time for year-end release. Top filmmakers and stars are eager to grab one of those key slots. But for distributors, mounting a big year-end release is costly — especially with awards campaigns attached. The movie had better have the goods. Going in January is one option.

For example, when awards-savvy Weinstein Co. commits its (limited) resources to a full campaign on Garth Davis’s “Lion,” which is hitting the fall festival circuit, then you know it’s a bonafide contender. But when “The Founder” gets a late-year limited slot with a January break, you know they’re pushing a Best Actor campaign for Oscar perennial Michael Keaton in order to boost attention.

Thus, eyes have been on Warner Bros. and Boston ’20s drama “Live By Night,” Ben Affleck long-awaited return to the director’s chair after the Oscar-winning “Argo. »

Kevin Conroy “isn’t particularly comfortable” with The Dark Knight killing in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

13 August 2016 3:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Ben Affleck managed to win over a lot of his critics with his role as The Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, one aspect of the character that didn’t quite sit right with some fans was the fact that Batman racked up a body count that would shame many of the villains in his Rogues Gallery.

During an interview with IGN, legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy shared his thoughts on the latest big screen incarnation of The Dark Knight, and while he praised Affleck’s performance, he also stated that he “isn’t particularly comfortable” with Batman being a killer.

“Personally I love the fact that Batman – in the stories I’ve done, and the way he’s been rendered by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, the people I’ve worked with most closely – he never kills anybody. He doesn’t cross that line. »

Rumor: Which Actors Are Up For Cable And Domino In Deadpool 2?

13 August 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

While fans of the Deadpool character may have been looking forward to the Deadpool movie that came out earlier this year, not even the most hardcore of hardcore fans could have predicted what a runaway success the R-rated superhero comedy would be. It'd be easy to dismiss the success of the film and give credit to the immature humor prevalent throughout the film -- it was certainly a breath of fresh air for the genre, to be sure. However, one of the strongest points of the film was how well it treated its characters. Sure, they were stupid and immature on many levels, but they gave the film just enough depth so that viewers weren't left with a hollow feeling inside after watching.

Let's hope that with Deadpool 2, the writers remember that it's that they have to put the characters first, and one of the most important steps there, of course, »

Rumour: Kyle Chandler being eyed to play Cable in Deadpool 2

13 August 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Deadpool shared the news at the end of his debut superhero outing that the film’s sequel would feature the supervillain Cable, speculation has been rampant on which actor will play the telepathic mutant. Although such actors as Stephen Lang and Ron Perlman have thrown their hats in the ring and done a bit of campaigning for the part, today, thanks to Jeff Sneider we have our first legitimate candidate for the role.

While speaking to Forbes writer Simon Thompson on Popcorn Talk’s Meet the Movie Press, Sneider revealed that Friday Night Lights and Super 8 actor Kyle Chandler was being eyed for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. Sneider made it clear to those listening to take the report with a grain of salt, as it certainly hasn’t been confirmed by the studio, but he did mention that the actor’s name has been floating around for months. »

‘Suicide Squad’ Is a Hit, But DC Needs to Start Making Better Movies

7 August 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s an old adage that applies to the dilemma DC Comics currently faces. You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.

In the case of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and now “Suicide Squad,” it can be argued that DC and Warner Bros. have pretty skillfully pulled the wool over the eyes of a lot of people. “Batman v Superman’s” marketing material promised a clash of comic-book leviathans, despite the fact that the titular standoff comprises very little screen time in what is essentially a very long throat clearing for Justice League movies to come.

In the case of “Suicide Squad,” Day-Glo posters and pop music-infused trailers touted a wry, fun-filled and thrillingly amoral romp, similar to the fourth-wall breaking hit “Deadpool.” What audiences got instead was a down-beat, »

7 August 2016 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Square Enix has unveiled the New York Comic-Con exclusive Play-Arts Kai Black & White Superman figure Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice; standing at 10 inches tall, the figure is limited to 1000 units and is available to pre-order now, priced $149.99; take a look below…

Superman has established himself as a shining beacon of hope for humanity. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he faces off against Batman, the dark hero of the DC Comics universe. We’ve highlighted the noble, classically heroic characteristics of Superman, in striking contrast with Batman’s complex dark aspect. The chest and cape utilize flexible materials, creating a wide range of motion. Superman’s iconic take-off and landing poses are easily recreated. We’ve paid special attention to the fine details, keeping close accuracy to the design of the character in the film, such as the small Kryptonian insignia etched into the waist of his suit. »
