Ellen Page Kidnaps a Baby in First Trailer For ‘Tallulah’

29 June 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Recurring Orange Is The New Black writer Sian Heder is making her feature-length directorial debut after two short films with the Netflix-distributed Tallulah. Following a premiere at Sundance, the first trailer shows the struggle of the titular Tallulah (Ellen Page), a down-on-her-luck young woman who stumbles upon a nannying gig that sends her on unforgettable (or maybe very forgettable) journey. Oh, and she sorta kidnaps the baby and pretends it’s her own in order to get money from her missing boyfriend’s mother — but don’t worry, it’s inspirational when you put sad music over it.

We said in our review: “The light tone works well enough on its own, but suffers against the contrasting police investigation, a constant reminder that our lead’s new-found motherhood (also fodder for much comedy) has come at an awful price. Though this dichotomy is of clear intention by all involved, these »

Review: ‘The Night Of’ Premiere Takes Bad Luck to an Artful Extreme

28 June 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Naz is having a great night. The quiet college kid (played by upcoming “Star Wars: Rogue One” star Riz Ahmed), who still lives with his parents, scored an invite to a party with the basketball players he idolizes. Not only that, but it’s in Manhattan and “girls” are promised to be there. What more could a shy but eager young man ask for? Better yet, before he can even find the hot spot packed with single ladies, he meets one on his own. Things progress nicely, if a bit strangely, and Naz lives out every college boy’s dream night.

Until, that is, it becomes a nightmare.

It’s safe to admit as much without a spoiler warning, considering there’s no secret, no pretension whatsoever, that Naz’s night is heading toward any outcome other than disaster – even if he can’t see it. Directed and written »

MasterClass is expanding its film curriculum. After last month’s news that Werner Herzog will be teaching an online filmmaking course, it’s been announced that Aaron Sorkin will be doing similarly. The writer, producer and occasional actor is set to teach a screenwriting class for the online education platform, with the below trailer making it official. “It’s not just that dialogue sounds like music to me,” he says in the video, “it actually is music.”

Sorkin’s course will include more than 25 video lessons as well as a 30-page workbook and interactive assignments. (Presumably this includes an entire lecture devoted exclusively to the walk-and-talk.) “There’s a great tradition of writers from one generation giving a hand to the next group coming up — a tradition I got a lot of benefit from.

Scanbox Racks Up Pair of Hot Cannes Titles: ‘Molly’s Game,’ ‘Tully’ (Exclusive)

2 June 2016 8:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Scandinavian powerhouse Scanbox has added “Molly’s Game,” “Tully” and “Paterson” to its acquisition slate, beefing up a lineup that already includes several award-winning films at Cannes, including Ken Loach’s Palme d’Or winner, “I, Daniel Blake” (pictured above).

Watch: First Trailer For Steve Zaillian's HBO Limited Series 'The Night Of' Starring John Turturro And Riz Ahmed

18 April 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last week, we dove into the recent troubles HBO has been having, but let's be clear: when all the cylinders are firing, they still have some of the best programming around. This summer, they're unveiling a limited series that looks like it could be a knockout. Screenwriter and director Steve Zaillian ("Moneyball," "Gangs Of New York," "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") has gone behind the camera for "The Night Of" starring John Turturro and Riz Ahmed, directing seven of the show's eight episodes (James Marsh of "The Theory Of Everything" fame, has helmed one episode). The exact plot details remain under wraps, but the drama will detail the police investigation, the legal proceedings, the criminal justice system and the feral purgatory of Rikers Island, where the accused await trial for felony crimes.

First Trailer: HBO's "The Night Of" Series

18 April 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Despite the various troubles at the network which have seen HBO struggling in the past year or two, when they put their minds to it they can still produce some of the best television around.

Today they've released the first trailer for "The Night Of," the network's attempts at those dark, gloomy, ultra serious season-long crime mystery drama serials that have been a staple of British and Scandinavian TV in recent years.

Created by "Moneyball" and Fincher's "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" screenwriter Steve Zaillian, the eight episode project stars John Turturro and Riz Ahmed about a police investigation along with the legal proceedings and nasty purgatory that is Rikers Island where accused await trial. Zaillian helms all but one of the episodes, the last being tackled by "The Theory Of Everything" helmer James Marsh.

DVD Review: Steve Jobs

7 April 2016 7:32 PM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The mythology of Steve Jobs knows no bounds. A Zen Buddhist who berated his employees, an absentee father who supported his daughter, and an underdog who spearheaded the biggest company in the world, all through the guise of glasses and a black turtleneck. Was he a good guy? Was he even a genius? Such questions have been asked time and time again, often with an ambiguous response behind them. Judge not by the warmth of the morals, but by the efficiency of the products.

These are the contradictions that drive Steve Jobs, the latest offering from director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin. Steeped in five years of heavy research, wordsmith extraordinaire Sorkin (The Social Network [2010], Moneyball [2011]) whittles down Walter Isaacson’s biography to a trio of product launches in 1984, 1988, and 1998 – blending fact and fiction to fit his be-speckled canvas.

Best Baseball Movies

3 April 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In the midst of March Madness and with the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the first pitch of baseball season is almost here.

A quote from Field Of Dreams best describes America’s national pastime, “The one constant throughout the years has been baseball.”

To mark the start of the 2016 season, here’s our list of the Best Baseball movies.

The Bad News Bears

Considered by some to be the best baseball movie ever, the film celebrates its 40th anniversary this month (April 7, 1976). In an article from the NY Daily News, one line reads, “It is a movie that someone like the late Philip Seymour Hoffman called his favorite, and one which resonates on many levels today, with all different generations.”

Who are we to argue with greatness?

After skewering all-American subjects such as politics (The Candidate) and beauty pageants (Smile), director Michael Ritchie naturally set his sights on the »
