Oscars 2016: David vs. Goliath In Best Picture Race

8 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The stage is set for a David vs. Goliath battle at the 88th academy awards.

In one corner are the Goliath box office hits that Oscarcast viewers have heard of — and maybe even seen: This year’s top three on the nominations tally are Fox’s “The Revenant” (12 noms), Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max: Fury Road” (10) and Fox’s “The Martian” (seven).

Together, they’ve amassed over $1.2 billion at the global box office.

In the other corner are the likes of Fox Searchlight’s “Brooklyn,” which was acquired at Sundance and had a production budget of $11 million, and A24’s “Room,” which is the first best picture nominee for the emerging studio.

Together, they’ve made just over $40 million at the domestic box office (though neither one is close to finished, especially with three weeks to go until the Oscars).

Blockbuster Oscar winners such as “Rocky” and “Titanic” have given way »

Colony Pilot Recap: Viva L.A. Resistance!

14 January 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Let's begin with a warning: There's a lot of silly dialogue in Colony. Good guys ask bad guys how they "slap on a suit and a smile and dick over their own kind." Teen bullies harass their classmates by warning, "No trading goes on without me getting my beak wet." A moody ex-fbi fugitive hunter, when pressed about his past, mumbles about being "good at finding people." And most regrettably, a black woman running bootleg pharmacies brags about how no one makes good insulin "except old Heloise."If you had high hopes that USA would follow up Mr. Robot with another stirring original drama, don't fret: The pilot's unconvincing script doesn't spell Colony's early doom. Executive producers Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal have conjured an urban dystopia with promising similarities to genre contemporaries (from District 9 to Fear the Walking Dead) and thematic forebears (They Live, Escape from L.A. »
