First trailer for The Coens’ new film Hail, Caesar!

9 October 2015 9:11 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer has arrived online for Hail, Caesar!, the new film from the Coen Brothers, and you can view it in the player below…

The first effort from the Coens’ since 2013’s Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film is described as a “musical comedy” and sees a hot-short studio “fixer” (played by Josh Brolin) have to try to find the star of a new historical epic (George Clooney) after he is kidnapped.

As usual, the film promises the usual amount of Coens magic, with a hugely impressive cast to boot. In addition to Brolin and Clooney, both of whom have worked with the directors before, the film also stars Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Tilda Swinton (A Bigger Splash), Frances McDormand (Fargo), Alden Ehrenreich (Stoker), Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street), Peter Stormare (Fargo), Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) and Ralph Fiennes (The Grand Budapest Hotel).

Sarah Silverman is Latest Comedic Actor to Branch into Drama with ‘I Smile Back’

8 October 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

Sarah Silverman, primarily known for her work in comedy, is one of the latest actors to branch out from lighter fare into the world of drama. This year’s I Smile Back, director Adam Salky‘s story of a troubled woman’s aim at redemption, was nominated for the Grand Jury prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and showcases star Silverman in a much different light than audiences are used to seeing her.

Silverman has ventured into dramatic territory before, with 2011’s Take This Waltz from director Sarah Polley, but was relegated to a supporting role beside stars Michelle Williams and Seth Rogen. With I Smile Back, Silverman takes on the heavy lifting of a serious starring role.

The history of comedic talent spreading their dramatic wings is full of big names and, in certain cases, has led to major Oscar recognition.

Bridge Of Spies Premieres At New York Film Festival

4 October 2015 8:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

On Sunday, cast and filmmakers from DreamWorks Pictures dramatic thriller Bridge Of Spies celebrated the film’s world premiere at Alice Tully Hall as part of the 53rd Annual New York Film Festival where they received a standing ovation.

One of the best films this year, Bridge Of Spies stars Tom Hanks, Mark Rylance, Scott Shepherd, Amy Ryan, Sebastian Koch, Alan Alda, Austin Stowell, Mikhail Gorevoy and Will Rogers.

The first reviews came out this evening:

“It’s no small feat turning a shyster and a spy into national heroes, but that’s the unique achievement of Steven Spielberg’s “Bridge of Spies.” If Jimmy Stewart were alive today, the director surely would have asked him to play James Donovan, a noble New York insurance lawyer roped into providing an alleged Soviet agent with pro-bono legal representation, who later goes on to broker his exchange for two Americans held captive by Commies. »

Why Did 'X-Men' Spinoff 'Gambit' Really Lose Its Director?

30 September 2015 6:39 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just three months after signing on to direct 20th Century Fox's highly-anticipated superhero spinoff Gambit, filmmaker Rupert Wyatt backed out of the project two weeks ago. The departure was attributed to a shift in the Gambit production schedule, which was supposed to begin in November, but was then changed to March 2016, which reportedly conflicted with an unspecified project. Today, The Hollywood Reporter claims that the split happened because 20th Century Fox started questioning whether or not the filmmaker was truly committed to the project.

Ironically, just weeks before Rupert Wyatt signed on this past June, a report surfaced that actor/producer Channing Tatum was having trouble finding a director for Gambit. He reportedly approached his Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller, along with Darren Aronofsky (Noah), Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption) and J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year). All of those filmmakers passed on the project. But even after Rupert Wyatt signed on, »

For Fact-Based Films, Is Scrupulous Accuracy the Ultimate Goal?

29 September 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s perhaps appropriate that a film called “Truth” is gearing up for this year’s awards race, with other movies on the circuit already weathering the usual criticisms regarding the dramatization of real-life events.

At the Telluride Film Festival, “Steve Jobs” screenwriter Aaron Sorkin got out in front of the fact that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn’t necessarily present things accurately. “Art isn’t about what happened,” Sorkin said at the time. “You can see a very good piece of journalism about him.” The goal, he said, was to make a “painting” rather than a “photograph.”

Last season, Ava DuVernay’s “Selma” was blindsided by criticisms over accuracy late in the year, kicking off a cycle of pieces that didn’t help its chances. Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” took its share of knocks as well. We’re also three years removed from the unprecedented Congressional takedown of »

Mississippi Grind | Review

23 September 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Let the River Run: Boden & Fleck’s Melancholy, Character Driven Road-Trip

Filmmaking duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck return with their best collaboration since the 2006 break out title Half Nelson (a film which Boden only shared co-writing credit). Considering their last effort was the 2010 dramedy It’s Kind of a Funny Story, it’s with definite pleasure to see them return to their talents for concocting acute characterizations and capturing impressive performances with Mississippi Grind, a rambling, gambling tumbleweed of a film. Gilded with a palpable sadness in its exploration of hollow lives desperately chasing impossible dreams, the film pays homage to Robert Altman’s 1974 classic California Split, which starred Elliott Gould and George Segal. Boden and Fleck transport us to the modern day Mid-West, utilizing the eponymous river as journey through the threadbare humanity on the road.

Down on his luck Gerry (Ben Mendelsohn) seems determined to live on the precipice of complete ruination, »

Darren Aronofsky set to team up with Channing Tatum for Evel Knievel film

15 September 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Tracking Board is reporting that Oscar nominated director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan) is in negotiations to helm the long-gestating film about the life of Evel Knievel.

Aronofsky, whose last film was 2014’s Noah, is said to be in early talks to take over the director’s chair for the film, which has been in development at Sony for over a year with Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher) attached to star. The script, which was written by Reid Carolin and Tatum, was circulating last year before it was shelved but now looks like it might possibly be resuscitated.

Daredevil Knievel was a world-famous motorcycle stuntman who famously tried (and failed) to jump Snake River Canyon in 1974 on a rocket. He died in 2007. A documentary about Knievel, Being Evel, co-produced by Johnny Knoxville, has just been released in the Us, with its UK debut set for this year’s London Film Festival.

First images of Charisma Carpenter in Appalachian horror ‘Girl in Woods’

Yield Entertainment has released a new poster and stills for Jeremy Benson’s Girl in Woods. The latest thriller from the director of Shutter and Live Animals, the titular girl must battle nature and her own demons for her survival and sanity in a deserted part of the Appalachian Mountains. On his latest film, Benson said:

Girl in Woods was a passion project for us. The idea of doing an origin story to what would be a slasher film interested me, and being able to wrap that inside of a psychological thriller seemed to add a level of storytelling that, as a horror fan, I felt would be welcomed. This film is the birth of an urban legend; one of a mysterious savage that is believed to be killing people in the mountains. I want audiences to be disturbed by what is happening to Grace, and at the end understand »

Casting 'Clown Car '16, the Movie'

8 September 2015 7:37 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Start with the title: Clown Car! may sound like the movie someone will inevitably make about the 2016 presidential campaign, but how about evoking those great Seventies wacky-journey films like Death Race 2000, Vanishing Point or Smokey and the Bandit?

When I raised the question on Twitter, suggestions included All the President's Wanna-Bes, Every Which Way But Left, Cannonball Rug, A Kochwork Orange and the subtly appropriate Hair.

All excellent ideas, and we may have to put the movie name to a separate vote. Right now, though, the more pressing question is »

Sienna Miller's role in Black Mass was cut over "narrative choices"

4 September 2015 12:05 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sienna Miller has been cut from Johnny Depp's new true crime thriller Black Mass.

The Foxcatcher actress filmed scenes as one of the girlfriends of Johnny Depp's character Whitey Bulger.

However, the movie's director Scott Cooper has said that Miller's scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

Speaking to The Boston Globe, Cooper explained that the decision to cut the scenes "came down to narrative choices".

Black Mass is the true story of Whitey Bulger, the most infamous violent criminal in the history of South Boston, who became an FBI informant to take down a Mafia family invading his turf.

Johnny Depp stars as Bulger - in what some critics have called a career-best performance - alongside Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch and Corey Stoll.

Miller had previously hinted that her role was a short one.

"I shot for two weeks," said the star in an interview with The Boston Globe last year. »

Owen Wilson on Zoolander 2, True Detective, and why he can't see himself as a superhero

4 September 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you hadn't noticed, 2015 is the year the Frat Pack got serious. Steve Carell donned a fake nose and subsequently won an Oscar nomination for Foxcatcher, while Vince Vaughn struggled through many a portentous monologue in True Detective's second season.

Now Owen Wilson's taking his turn in No Escape, playing the father of a family caught up in a violent revolution overseas. For the first time since 2001's Behind Enemy Lines, he's an action hero.

Digital Spy caught up with Owen to talk about his return to action, his hopes for Zoolander 2, and why you won't see him caping up for Marvel.

Do you think it's true, as many directors say, that it's easier to cast comedians in dramatic roles than the other way around?

"Yeah. It might sound sort of self-serving but I agree! I'm not from a standup comedy background, but I have been in a lot of comedies, »

Venice Film Review: Johnny Depp in ‘Black Mass’

4 September 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The icy blue eyes of notorious Boston crime boss James “Whitey” Bulger stare out from the screen in Scott Cooper’s “Black Mass” like the gaze of some confident jungle predator calmly lying in wait, holding his ground until the moment he moves in for the kill. And that same coolly calculated composure extends to every aspect of how the actor playing Bulger embodies the role, or rather disappears into it. But if Johnny Depp’s mesmerizing performance — a bracing return to form for the star after a series of critical and commercial misfires — is the chief selling point of “Black Mass,” there is much else to recommend this sober, sprawling, deeply engrossing evocation of Bulger’s South Boston fiefdom and his complex relationship with the FBI agent John Connolly, played with equally impressive skill by Joel Edgerton. Something of an anti-“The Departed” (which was partly inspired by the »

The Blunt Reason Sienna Miller Was Cut Out Of Johnny Depp's Black Mass

3 September 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Sienna Miller spent 2014 playing the wives of men who met tragic ends in American Sniper and Foxcatcher. While 2015 will see her star in more eclectic roles, she did film one part that was eerily similar to her efforts in the aforementioned flicks. In Black Mass, she was due to portray Catherine Greig, the girlfriend to famed Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, but it.s been confirmed that we won.t actually get to see her work, after director Scott Cooper revealed that she has been cut out of the film. Speaking to The Boston Globe, Cooper admitted that it was a horrific decision to edit Catherine Greig out of Black Mass, insisting that Miller was "fantastic." However, ultimately a decision had to be made to suit the finished film, and in order to make Black Mass as impressive as possible, her scenes were cut. Cooper explained: It came down to narrative »
