Telluride vs. Toronto: The Battle for Oscar Supremacy

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Healthy, even heated competition between film festivals is nothing new. Cannes was founded in the late ’30s as the French response to Venice. In recent years, Shanghai has felt the heat from the government-backed Beijing, while both SXSW and Tribeca have sought to position themselves as viable alternatives to Sundance.

Rarely, however, have such tensions spiked quite so visibly, or with such high stakes involved, as in the case of Telluride and Toronto.

Nestled deep in the Rocky Mountains, the 41-year-old Telluride Film Festival is an intimate four-day affair that screens a highly selective program for Hollywood elites and deep-pocketed movie buffs. The 39-year-old Toronto Film Festival is an 11-day press and industry behemoth, Byzantine in its complexity and Canadian in its efficiency, which unspools about 300 features and attracts journalists, publicists, filmmakers and dealmakers from all over the world. Two very different events, forced by the vagaries of art, commerce »

Nyff 2014. Main Slate

20 hours ago | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Opening Night – World Premiere

Gone Girl

David Fincher, USA, 2014, Dcp, 150m

David Fincher’s film version of Gillian Flynn’s phenomenally successful best seller (adapted by the author) is one wild cinematic ride, a perfectly cast and intensely compressed portrait of a recession-era marriage contained within a devastating depiction of celebrity/media culture, shifting gears as smoothly as a Maserati 250F. Ben Affleck is Nick Dunne, whose wife Amy (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on the day of their fifth anniversary. Neil Patrick Harris is Amy’s old boyfriend Desi, Carrie Coon (who played Honey in Tracy Letts’s acclaimed production of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) is Nick’s sister Margo, Kim Dickens (TremeFriday Night Lights) is Detective Rhonda Boney, and Tyler Perry is Nick’s superstar lawyer Tanner Bolt. At once a grand panoramic vision of middle America, a uniquely disturbing exploration of the fault lines in a marriage, »

Tiff 2014: Updated Screening Tally Brings Total to 46 Possible Movies

19 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It seems as if the 2014 Toronto Film Festival lineup is more or less set. I'm not expecting any major additions after today's announcement and have taken another look at my current list of most likely films I'll be screening while in town, though this is largely based on title and director alone as I have yet to really dig into the titles unfamiliar to me so it's possible a few may find their way into the mix once all is said and done. That said, if you think there are some I'm missing please let me know... don't want to overlook anything. Note, I will be in Toronto from September 3-10 and expect I'll see about 18 movies maximum while I'm there. Right now the full list below is 48 movies not including the four I've already seen (but have yet to review) and the one I don't think I'll even have a chance to see. »

10 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (Aug 16)

15 August 2014 11:46 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Greetings everyone, and welcome to the latest edition of the WhatCulture.com News Brief. It’s been a bit of a tough week for movie, TV, and entertainment fans, as not only was it a slow news week in general, but we also lost two incredible Hollywood legends. Lauren Bacall and Robin Williams both passed away, and left behind incredible legacies that we’ll talk about a bit later on.

In other news, we have several studios playing Release Date Jamboree and announcing openings for upcoming films and franchise sequels, we have word on the future of Damon Lindelof and HBO’s controversial new series The Leftovers, updates on Marvel’s The Inhumans and DC’s Aquaman, and a glimmer of hope that Michael Bay might finally move on from the moneymaking machines known as the Transformers franchise.

Before we mourn the loss of those who’ve fallen this week, »

A Mid-August Oscar Predictions Update

15 August 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Here we are again. Since we’re now in the middle of August folks, you must know what time it is. Yup, it’s time for me to come to you all once again with some new and (hopefully) even more up to date Oscar predictions, my second one this month. As usual, I hope they’ll represent another bit of a change from speculation on towards educated guesswork now that awards season is fast approaching us. We still have a long way to go in the season overall, and these new predictions will likely be mostly wrong in the end anyway, but with each passing update (two a month now) I’m trying to figure it all out and get more and more confident in backing particular horses. If that sounds a bit repetitive to you, well…it’s still kind of the nature of the beast for this thing. »

Hollywood Foreign Press Association Donates Millions As Golden Globe Hopefuls Help The Cause

14 August 2014 11:53 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

We are still two weeks away from the official start of the movie awards season with the launch of the Venice, Telluride and Toronto fall festivals  but quite frankly the Hollywood Foreign Press Association got things rolling Thursday night with their annual Grants Banquet. The organization doled out $1.9 million for worthy charitable causes. This year marks the first time the event, held at the Beverly Hilton each August, took place in the evening rather than as a luncheon. Considering that just about every studio awards consultant was present and that several hopefuls from seen and yet unseen movies were enlisted to accept the various grants, you could say the race is off and running. Especially given that the HFPA’s Golden Globes show ranks only behind the Oscars and Grammys in viewership among kudofests.

Second-term HFPA President Theo Kingma told me that switching the event to nighttime was his idea »

First Tease for 52nd New York Film Festival + Main Line-Up Unveiled

13 August 2014 3:31 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Another year, another New York Film Festival with an outstanding line-up of indies and foreign films to dazzle New York City audiences. The 52nd New York Film Festival has revealed their full main slate line-up, featuring everything from the Dardennes to Godard to Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher (one of my favorite films from Cannes) to Cronenberg, Mike Leigh, Olivier Assayas, with Damien Chazelle's Sundance fave Whiplash tossed in there, too. Three other highly anticipated films have already been announced: Gone Girl, PTA's Inherent Vice, and Birdman to close the fest. But plenty of other great films will be showing. Now that we're based out of New York City, the Nyff is our home base fall film festival and they also put on a great show, light years ahead of Tribeca in terms of cinematic content, organization, beautiful venues, and the overall experience. I can't recommend it enough, and I »

Foxcatcher, Maps To The Stars, Others Added To New York Film Festival Full Lineup

13 August 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The New York Film Festival is headed into its 52nd year of excellence, and this fall, they have maybe the most decorated lineup of any of the year's rival fests. Cinephiles are thrilled with the already-announced movies, including Gone Girl earning its world premiere on Opening Night, Inherent Vice scheduled to be the centerpiece, and Birdman making its American debut on closing night. And now, the rest of the lineup has been added, and it is killer. The flashier names are familiar to anyone who followed Cannes this year. Bennett Miller's murder mystery Foxcatcher will be a part of the fest, as will Alice Rohrwacher's The Wonders and Mike Leigh's Mr. Turner. David Cronenberg's chilly Maps To The Stars is just the latest Nyff visit for the Canadian genius, showing alongside festival faves the Dardenne Brothers and their new film, Two Days, One Night.

2015 Oscar Predictions: Updating Field as Eastwood's 'Sniper' Enters Race, Plus First Foreign Contenders

13 August 2014 9:48 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night we learned Warner Bros. was entering Clint Eastwood's American Sniper into the Oscar race, giving the film a limited Christmas Day release before going wide in mid-January. Well, that means I needed to swoop over and do a little updating to my list of Oscar predictions, specifically in the Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay categories, and while Sniper didn't actually make my list of nominees in any one of those categories, there was some shifting up and down of my current selection of nominees. Here's how each of those categories now look at the top: Best Picture Unbroken Wild Birdman Foxcatcher Gone Girl Boyhood Interstellar A Most Violent Year Selma Best Director Bennett Miller (Foxcatcher) Angelina Jolie (Unbroken) Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Birdman) David Fincher (Gone Girl) Richard Linklater (Boyhood) Best Actor Michael Keaton (Birdman) Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) Timothy Spall (Mr. Turner) Miles Teller »

2014 Nyff: Chazelle, Broomfield, Bonello, Ferrara, Sang-soo, Hansen-Løve Make Cut

While Sundance (Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash and Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip) and Berlin (Dominik Graf’s Beloved Sisters, Yann Demange’s ’71, Alain ResnaisLife of Riley) titles are indeed present, the 52nd edition (much like previous years) is a Cannes heavy and slightly Venice lopsided affair/showcase for Manhattanites.

Also the lieu for subtitle friendly distrib companies to measure their summer purchases (IFC, Spc, Cinema Guild, Cohen Media), leading the pack in non Croisette or Lido items, we’re most curious about Pedro Costa’s Horse Money, Matías Piñeiro’s The Princess of France and Eugène Green’s La Sapienza and are looking forward to multi-volume Eden from Mia Hansen-Løve and Nick Broomfield’s (Telluride-tiff) Tales of the Grim Sleeper (see pic above) Added to Fincher’s Gone Girl, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice and Iñárritu’s Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance here are »
