Jon Stewart’s Directorial Debut, Rosewater, Gets Award-Friendly Release And First Photo

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the announcement that Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman and the success of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, it has been a more exciting year for Jon Stewart’s ex-correspondents than it has for the Daily Show host. However, that could all change this fall, when Stewart’s screenwriting and directorial debut, Rosewater, hits the big screen. After the title screens at the Toronto Film Festival in September, Open Road Films will release the journalistic thriller on November 7, 2014 in select theatres.

Rosewater is based on a true story (and best-selling memoir) by BBC journalist Maziar Bahari. Bahari, played by Gael Garcia Bernal in the film, was a Canadian broadcast journalist living in London who Iranian authorities imprisoned for 118 days in 2009. He arrived in Iran to report about a heated presidential election but was arrested for 11 charges of espionage. The title comes from the nickname Bahari gave the man who imprisoned and interrogated him. »

“Gone Girl” by David Fincher: An August Oscar Predictions Update

11 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Welcome to August folks. Now that we’re well into the second half of 2014 and reaching the end of the summer, it’s time for me to come to you again with some new and (hopefully) even more up to date Oscar predictions. I sincerely hope that 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, don’t me wrong, and these new predictions will likely be wrong more than right in the end anyway, but with each passing update I’m getting attempting to figure it all out and get more and more confident in backing particular horses as opposed to other ones that I’ve mentioned previously. If that sounds a bit repetitive to you, well…that’s still kind of the nature of the beast for this. »

Variety jumps into the deep end of crafts coverage and it's about time

30 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As one person put it to me, "It's nice to have a trade covering, you know, the trades, because we haven't really had that in some time." Indeed, it's fantastic to see our colleagues at Variety dig in and represent the industry as they are with the newly branded "Artisans" initiative, and it's a long, long time coming. It is and has been an underreported element of the business, but I've happily seen that slowly shift in the decade we've been diligently, sometimes obsessively, covering below-the-line here at In Contention. From the word go, we made these artists a priority around here. They have an insight into the process that is always preferable to the soundbyte-prone "stars" of the circuit, and as someone who has always come at this work from that perspective, those chats are typically the most fulfilling to me. As we've forged ahead, we've witnessed other outlets »

2014 Tiff Screening Tally So Far...

29 July 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I fully expect Xavier Dolan's Mommy to be announced on August 6th so you can go ahead and add that one to my "Must Sees" list below, but as of right now my list of films I consider absolute "musts" sits at 17 movies with another nine I'll make top priority after I schedule those and then another nine that will be dependent on my screening schedule because conflicts due arise meaning any of these may be on or off the table... schedule depending. I'm going to be in Toronto from September 3-10, which means six full screening days, which means seeing 18 films will be pushing it, which also means I'm going to miss a lot of movies I would really like to see... Hell, it might even end up being worth it to skip films with already established release dates -- Foxcatcher, The Judge, Wild, The Drop, Mr. Turner, »

What’s Left in 2014: Ten Highly Anticipated Movies

28 July 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

It will be August in a few days now, which means that more than half of the calendar year has passed already, but there are still several films that should be on your radar. The summer movie season is over, but there is still a few tentpole productions to look forward to before the fall/winter in the form of Marvel’s oddest feature yet, the beginning of the end of the Hunger Games franchise and Christopher Nolan’s excursion into the stars.

Guardians of the Galaxy (Aug 1)

Comic book films are often chastised for being too cookie-cutter, but those films don’t include a sentient tree and a talking raccoon with a penchant for violence. Guardians could either be hugely successful or an eccentric failure for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but I have a feeling this is the movie that makes Chris Pratt a household name and that can’t be a bad thing. »

How ‘The Avengers’ & ‘Lucy’ Turned Scarlett Johansson Into an Action Superstar

27 July 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Donning a dodgy Russian accent and a skin-tight, leather suit as “The Avengers’” Black Widow is reaping dividends for Scarlett Johansson.

The actress may have benefited more from her work on the Marvel movies than any other member of the superhero ensemble save for Robert Downey Jr., whose work as Iron Man transformed him into perhaps the biggest box office star on the planet. Evidence of Johansson’s raised profile was on display this weekend, as the actress powered “Lucy” to a $44 million debut, the third biggest female-driven action opening of all time.

First and second place belong to “Wanted” and “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” both star Angelina Jolie, who may have a worthy successor in the come-hither glances and gunplay department in Johansson.

“‘Avengers’ turned her into an action star and that’s part of the reason ‘Lucy’ had so much success,” said Jeff Bock, a box office analyst with Exhibitor Relations. »

Robert Downey Jr. brings roses and Josh Brolin as every Avenger gets a Marvel panel moment

26 July 2014 8:55 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego — Rumor had it that during their highly anticipated Comic-Con panel Marvel Studios would announce which actor is playing the new Doctor Strange in Scott Derrickson's upcoming big screen adaptation. Rumor also had it that Marvel would reveal who is playing Captain Marvel, a much-needed super-powered female Avenger that is expected to cameo in "Avengers: Age of Ultron." Neither event happened. Instead, the studio announced that a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" has already been greenlit and it already has a release date of July 28, 2017. Oh yeah, and they showed a massive amount of footage from Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel with almost the entire cast on hand. A who's who of Hollywood stars including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elisabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Paul Bettany »

Ten Best: Movies to get excited for in the second half of 2014

26 July 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

2014 has already seen some very good films released, with the likes of Boyhood, The Fault in Our Stars, X-Men: Days of Future Past and others doing great business and turning heads in the process. The remainder of 2014 will also see a large number of film releases, and some of those are highly intriguing. Let’s take a look at ten of the films that I, personally, am excited for in the second half of 2014.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Director, James Gunn, tasselled my hair playfully when he put a little independent film named “Super” on the table in 2010, an underrated Rainn Wilson fronted comedy drama about a guy who thinks that god is telling him to fight crime. When I heard that Gunn was bringing his sense of humour and action to Guardians of the Galaxy my interest hit a high note. With a cast including the enjoyable everyman Chris Pratt »

The Toronto Film Festival will again play host to scores of Oscar hopefuls

25 July 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

With today’s announcement that David Dobkin’s film The Judge will open the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, I figured that it was a good time to talk about the Tiff lineup. That Robert Downey Jr. vehicle will seek to become an awards player, and it’s not alone. Each year, scores of titles descend on Toronto in order to distinguish themselves to Academy members and various precursor voters everywhere. The festival has a solid history of producing Oscar nominees, though the big time competition this year from the New York Film Festival will certainly shine a light on just how essential a stop this fest still is. For now though, it’s a big one, and well worth a bit of discussion. As mentioned above, the opening film is The Judge, which could be a Best Actor player for Downey Jr. or perhaps even a Best Picture contender if it’s better than expected. »

A second stab at Golden Globe predictions

24 July 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I was originally planning on waiting to take another look at the Golden Globe awards and my predictions for that precursor until the summer was over, but with the festival announcements in full swing, it seems like a nice time to approach these again. Next week brings new Oscar predictions on my part (also informed by the New York and Toronto Film Festival announcements), so this is a good way to bide our time until then. There’s certainly a bit of a separation between the two, so it’s a far cry from the same sort of predictions, as you’ve probably already gathered by now. The Globes and the Oscars are very different animals, to say the least. You can argue about the actual impact that the former has on the latter, but at the very bare minimum, it influences perception, so it must be reckoned with to some degree. »

A Little Chaos unfolds at 2014 Tiff Galas and Special Presentations

23 July 2014 4:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Set to close the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival is the sophomore directorial effort of Alan Rickman who is best known for being the source of villainy in Die Hard (1988) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991).  “It is a great privilege for A Little Chaos to have its world premiere in Toronto and for it to be given the Festival’s closing night Gala, but it is also a very personal pleasure,” stated Rickman. “I have filmed in the city, visited often, and some of my closest friends live there. It will be like coming home.”

The historical drama stars Kate Winslet as Sabine De Barra an unconventional landscaper who is tasked with designing one of the fountains at The Palace of Versailles while contending with uncooperative weather, rivalries at the court of Louis Xiv and her own personal demons.  Performing alongside Winslet are Stanley Tucci, Alan Rickman and Matthias Schoenaerts. »

Noah Baumbach, Mike Leigh, David Gordon Green, Jason Reitman, Bennett Miller, David Cronenberg, Antoine Fuqua, Edward Zwick, Mikael Roskam and David Dobkin are just a few of the directors we’re anticipating work from.

Tiff 2014: 23 Titles That Already Have Us Excited for Canada’s Big Show

22 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We may be within spitting distance of this year’s Comic-Con, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t spend some time getting excited about the next next big event: this September’s Toronto International Film Festival. The festival has now unleashed the first bit of its slate, and it’s already the kind of talent-packed, big name-crammed, jaw-dropping kind of thing we’ve long come to expect from the festival. Honestly? I’m sort of already packing my bags right now, because I don’t want anything slowing down my ability to see a whole mess of these films (even excessively and embarrassingly early preparations). This announcement includes thirteen Galas and forty-six Special Presentations — just a smidge of the festival’s full slate, really, but the one that’s the most glitzy and recognizable — which includes thirty-seven world premieres and plenty of films we’ve been waiting a long time to see.
