Love Demands Everything In Latest Trailer For The Light Between Oceans

11 July 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Love demands everything. That’s the sentimental tagline tethered to today’s beautiful new trailer for The Light Between Oceans, Derek Cianfrance’s adaptation that’s pegged to dock in theatres come September.

At first glance, it makes for quite the genuine and heartfelt tagline, but when set against the context of M. L. Stedman’s eponymous best-seller, it tees up a tragic and emotionally raw story.

You see, The Light Between Oceans orbits around a childless couple (Michael Fassbender & Alicia Vikander) situated on a isolated island off the coast of a post-wwi Australia.

Eager to raise a family of their own, Fassbender and Vikander’s would-be parents struggle through miscarriages and other setbacks that push their bond to the absolute limit. Clutching to any semblance of hope with worn, desperate hands, their prayers are soon answered when a lonely baby girl miraculously washes up on shore. But as the »

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander Lead New Trailer For ‘The Light Between Oceans’

9 July 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With only a few features under his belt, Derek Cianfrance has already established himself as one of the most raw, poetic, and promising directors currently sitting in the chair, both as an improviser and careful planner. His next feature is an initially odd choice at first glance, a sweeping romance with a title that both accurately states the poeticism of the talent that is paired with the material, yet also conjures images of a Nicolas Sparks adaptation. A closer look demands the former thought as the thunderous talent on display is considered.

The Light Between Oceans stars Michael Fassbender — whose own raw genius is on full display in the first trailer — Alicia Vikander, and Rachel Wesiz. Then, there’s cinematographer Adam Arkapaw, who lensed the recent Macbeth, the entire first season of True Detective, and Snowtown. This is all topped of course by Cianfrance, who penned this adaptation from a bestselling novel himself. »

New Trailer For ‘The Light Between Oceans’ Highlights A Miraculous Love With Michael Fassbender & Alicia Vikander

Director Derek Cianfrance certainly knows his way to an emotional gutpunch, as evidenced by “Blue Valentine,” which beautifully and agonizingly detailed the well of feelings involved in a breakup, leaving us clutching a box of Kleenex by the film’s gorgeous final credits. Can he do the same with “The Light Between Oceans“? Certainly, the story is […]

‘Silicon Valley’ Star Matt Ross Really Wants To Direct, And The Result is ‘Captain Fantastic’

8 July 2016 6:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After stints on HBO’s “Silicon Valley” and “Big Love,” Matt Ross is a familiar face. But if he has his way, that will soon change.

“I don’t want to be ungrateful, but the truth of the matter is that I don’t really audition or pursue acting at this point in my life,” he said. “Television has allowed me to not take on directing jobs I don’t want to take. I can cobble together a living.”

While Ross is wonderful as scheming tech executive Gavin Belson on Mike Judge’s hit show, and was memorable as polygamous cult henchman Alby Grant, he’s determined to define himself as a director. He made his debut in 2012 with microbudget romance “28 Hotel Rooms,” but “Captain Fantastic” is a picture window into the career that the 46-year-old Ross envisions for himself. A decidedly more polished work starring Viggo Mortensen, the film »

Michelle Williams In Line To Join The Greatest Showman With Hugh Jackman And Zac Efron

6 July 2016 2:56 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline brings word that Michelle Williams, the decorated actress who shot to fame through roles in Shutter Island, Blue Valentine and My Week with Marilyn, has opened negotiations to join musical biopic The Greatest Showman.

Should a deal fall into place, Williams will join Neighbors 2 star Zac Efron and Hugh Jackman in the feature, and it’s understood the latter has been attached to the P.T Barnum biopic for years at this point.

Charting the three-ring act known as Barnum & Bailey Circus, Jackman and Co. will chronicle Barnum’s defining impact on show business in the 19th century. It’ll also welcome the X-Men stalwart back into the genre of musicals, »

Don’t Miss Heart-Wrenching Oscar Contender ‘The Light Between Oceans’

24 June 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

With a cast led by two 2016 Academy Award contenders—winner Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) and nominee Michael Fassbender (“Steve Jobs”)—and supported by 2006 Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”), it’s little wonder why “The Light Between Oceans” is shaping up to be a major awards contender this year. Based on the acclaimed 2012 novel of the same name by M.L. Stedman, it’s the story of an Australian lighthouse keeper and his wife who after losing their baby child in the years just after the First World War, happen upon a baby girl in an adrift rowboat and raise her as their own. Years later, they learn of their adopted daughter’s origins from her mourning mother, played by Weisz. Writer-director Derek Cianfrance has already proven he can assuredly—and heartbreakingly—navigate the nuances of a marriage on trial with “Blue Valentine,” making “The Light Between Oceans” a promising must-see. »

See Hollywood’s History of Censorship With Risqué Compilation of Banned Footage

21 June 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

What was Nsfw (or, more specifically, theaters) nearly a century ago? Look no further than what CineGraphic has dug up: a compilation comprised of footage from an old reel of 35mm nitrate from 1926 that was unearthed at an old movie theater in Pennsylvania. The result is Forbidden Images, a collection of clips that were banned and censored to meet local “moral standard,” featuring a brief clip from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis and short glimpse of Greta Garbo in The Temptress, among many others.

What instantly becomes glaringly apparent is that all of the scenes feature women (shocker!), but no men. This compilation is a look into the historically sexist lens by which many ratings and censorships are governed, from small towns to the MPAA. To this day, women are still exploited for their sexuality and bodies in cinema. Depictions of sexuality are either celebrated, as in the case of Black Swan »

Tagline: "The Hunt is On." Sci-fi website Quiet Earth has debuted the first trailer for Joey Curtis' 2307: Winter's Dream. The film, which is currently at Cannes, involves a future world, where synthetic humanoids are waging a rebellion.

The synopsis reveals more of the story. A virus has wiped out 75% of the world's population. The survivors live below ground as an Ice Age is renewed above ground. Synthetic humans, tasked with helping their creators, have turned against them, instead. Now, a war is raging between the synthetics and few remaining human survivors. Very indie in nature, the filmmakers of 2307: Winter's Dream have provided an example of how far creativity can go on a small budget. Full of action sequences and terrifying scenarios, »

New ‘The Light Between Oceans’ Trailer Will Tug At The Heartstrings

16 May 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Get those hankies at the ready for this tearjerking trailer for The Light Between Oceans.

Michael Fassbender has a busy year ahead of him. The actor is set to reprise his role as Magneto in the forthcoming X-Men: Apocalypse; he is leading Fox’s adaptation of Assassin’s Creed in December; he is set to film Alien: Covenant fairly soon too and he is starring in a little drama, alongside Alicia Vikander, by the name of The Light Between Oceans.

Hot on the heels of Fassbender‘s Oscar nomination for his stellar work in Steve Jobs last year and Vikander‘s Oscar win for her stellar turn in The Danish Girl, the pair are set to join forces with director Derek Cianfrance – who brought us both Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines – for the film adaptation of M.L Stedman‘s moving, bestselling novel of the same name. »

“Between Us”, “Dean”, “Win!”, and “Youth in Oregon”: Tribeca Wrap Up for 2016

29 April 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Last week, I put the Tribeca Film Festival into the rearview mirror for 2016. It was an interesting fest, to say the least, with a number of forgettable movies mixing with the occasional standout flick or outright failure. I was bummed not to find something I completely fell in love with like in years past, when 5 to 7, Grandma, and Sleeping with Other People burned their way into my brain, but a few things did come close. This year’s festival was a step down, but it was the first time that I’d seen over 25 films at Tribeca, so I suppose the lower success rate was inevitable. Regardless, there was more than enough to sift through, so this wrap up piece will do just that. I’ve previously raved about Between Us and Dean (Dean especially, from Demetri Martin), but they’re not the only ones worth making a fuss over. »

April Showers: Blue Valentine

7 April 2016 5:24 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In April Showers, Team Tfe looks at our favorite waterlogged moments in the movies. Here's Kieran Scarlett on Blue Valentine (2010).

What are you doing?

-What does it look like I'm doing?

Getting all wet and naked.

A shower scene between two clearly beautiful lovers (even with the aging makeup) has rarely felt less erotic and more heartbreaking. This exchange manages to perfectly illustrate the tragic state of Dean (Ryan Gosling) and Cindy’s (Michelle Williams) relationship in Derek Cianfrance’s modern masterpiece, Blue Valentine. Dean is still obliviously playful, too willing to overlook the realities of his disintegrating marriage in favor of ham-handedly ginning up passion and romance. Cindy feels trapped and hopeless, unable to seek refuge from her husband’s obtuse adulation even in the shower. Her voice drips with the weary impatience often heard in response to a child’s incessant questioning, which frankly is not too dissimilar »
