Watch: Bennett Miller Goes To The Bathroom Directing Commercials For Quilted Northern

19 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Who knew Bennett Miller had such a wicked sense of humor? Those who saw the excellent but dour as hell “Foxcatcher” certainly had no idea. The director of the feel-good wrestling picture of 2014, as well as “Capote” and the underrated “Moneyball,” apparently decided to put his recent Cannes win for Best Director to good use as he recently rolled out (pun very much intended) a string of toilet paper commercials for Quilted Northern. Why toilet paper? Why not? A-list directors helming commercials for big time corporations is not a new thing: Wes Anderson directed American Express commercials; David Fincher did Nike, Spike Jonze promoted Levi’s, and there's countless other examples.

Watch: Bennett Miller’s Quilted Northern Commercials Are Hilariously Brilliant

1 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

It’s no secret that a lot of big filmmakers sometimes take breaks from the grueling production schedules of feature films to helm commercials for television. Of course folks like David Fincher, Spike Jonze, and Michael Bay got their start directing commercials, and they’ve been happy to return to the medium despite finding success in the world of movies. Hell, Fincher finished Gone Girl early so he took some time last year to helm a series of fantastic Gap commercials like it was nothing. But today some commercials have surfaced from a filmmaker whom you might not immediately connect with the world of TV ads: Bennett Miller. The guy has only directed three narrative movies—Capote, Moneyball, and Foxcatcher—but they’ve all been phenomenal, so there’s no question about his talent. However, who knew Miller was also funny? The filmmaker recently helmed a series of commercials for »

Christopher Nolan's Favorite Scene In The Dark Knight Trilogy

22 April 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight trilogy is a family of films full of incredible, memorable moments. Filmmakers are often very cagey when it comes to saying one scene or another is their favorite (like parents saying they love all their children equally), but Nolan recently revealed that he does in fact have a preferred scene from the saga, and it is indeed a doozy. Talking with Foxcatcher and Moneyball director Bennett Miller at the Tribeca Film Festival recently, as witnessed by Long Live Cinema, Nolan was asked what scene from his trio of Batman films is his favorite, and he wasted little time disclosing that it is that incredible scene where Bane (Tom Hardy) and his cronies hijack a plane in midair early in The Dark Knight Rises. That is definitely an intense scene in an intense movie, and one that was crazy complex to film as Nolan tried to »

The Big Short Has Added An Insanely Good Cast List

22 April 2015 1:11 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Adam Mckay, best known for his outrageous comedy sensibilities, may be gearing up to deliver a heavyweight drama for Paramount. The Big Short is based on a book by Michael Lewis and tells the story of a group of genius investors who figured out the property bubble was about to self implode and figured out a way to short the market prior to its collapse in 2008. If all of that sounds like it might not translate to screen, bear in mind Lewis' previous books Moneyball and The Blind Side managed to do quite well for themselves after being adapted for the big screen. Joining Adam McKay on the project is the kind of A-List cast the immediately screams Oscar glory come awards season. Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell and Marisa Tomei will be joining Melissa Leo for the film. Production is reportedly already underway in New Orleans. »

‘The Big Short’ has a rather large cast of big name actors

21 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s nothing short about the list of big name actors in the cast for the upcoming movie by Anchorman helmer Adam McKay.

Deadline reported on Tuesday that Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, and Brad Pitt are set to join Melissa Leo and Marisa Tomei in McKay’s adaptation of Michael Lewis’ book, The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. The book tells the story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

This is McKay’s first dive into large-scale drama after making a name for himself with comedy hits such as Anchorman, The Other Guys, and Step Brothers. He most recently worked with Marvel and Paul Rudd on the script for Ant-Man, which just released its second trailer, and is rumored to be on the shortlist »

Christopher Nolan Says His Filmmaking Process a ‘Combination of Intuition and Geometry’

20 April 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan described his filmmaking process as “some combination of intuition and geometry” in one of the Tribeca Talks series of public conversations at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

“I don’t write a story outline,” he told a packed house of festivalgoers during the discussion with fellow director Bennett Miller (“Foxcatcher,” “Moneyball”). “Usually my answer right off the bat is that I work intuitively, but I draw a lot of diagrams when I work. I do a lot of thinking about etchings by Escher, for instance. That frees me, finding a mathematical model or a scientific model. I’ll draw pictures and diagrams that illustrate the movement or the rhythm than I’m after.”

Intuition, he noted, comes to the fore in his editing process. “I’ve always edited in a huge hurry, tried to catch that lightning in a bottle, just so the energy is there,” he said. “I »

Christopher Nolan: “‘Snow White’ Absolutely Terrified Me” – Tribeca Film Fest

20 April 2015 6:15 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Director Bennett Miller went mano a mano with director Christopher Nolan Monday evening before a packed, film-crazy crowd at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center. Actually, the Tribeca Film Festival event was more bromance than smackdown, as Miller (Foxcatcher, Moneyball, Capote) played admiring interlocutor to the amiable Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, Memento). Their only prior work together had been in the area of keeping the use of film stock alive. After running… »

James Franco Seduces Jonah Hill in 'True Story': How They Did It (Video)

17 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The weird, fascinating cat-and-mouse between disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel (Jonah Hill) and accused murderer Christian Longo (James Franco) begins immediately during their first encounter in "True Story." Director Rupert Goold ("The Hollow Crown" mini-series) and editor Chris Tellefsen ("Moneyball") discuss the first scene in which Finkel meets Longo in the Oregon county jail. "I suppose there's an element of a Rorschach test where you see your own face and there's a self-conscious attempt in the film to dial back on Longo's context such as it was because I think it remains mysterious even to this day," Goold explained. "In some ways, the space between them is a psychological space rather than a real space. It's an encounter with the self and, without casting dispersion, it is true of some journalism and other writing and filmmaking as well -- however much one draws out of the »

True Story – The Review

16 April 2015 7:19 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The movies (especially dramas) have enjoyed a long infatuation with the legal system, particularly in the courtroom’s near-theatrical setting and its trappings. There are monologues (opening and closing statements) and dialogues (the ole’ cross examination on the witness stand, where Perry Mason got many a startling confession). And that essential conflict between those seeking justice or compensation and those often literally fighting, pleading for their lives. Good dramatic fodder, but what if journalism is tossed into the mix, mainly the cynical reporter or writer researching and often befriending (despite their resolve) the accused. Those were big parts of the recent dueling biographies of Truman Capote as he researched, and became smitten with, the deadly duo he profiled in that crime classic In Cold Blood. The writer/defendant pairing is once again explored in this new film and like those Capote flicks it is a True Story.

Clint Eastwood to direct Jonah Hill in Olympic Park bombing movie?

2 April 2015 3:42 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Clint Eastwood is in negotiations to direct Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio in a film about the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park Bombing.

The filmmaker is working with his traditional studio Warner Bros and rights holders 20th Century Fox for a possible co-production, reports Deadline.

This film will be based on Marie Brenner's Vanity Fair article The Ballad Of Richard Jewell, which chronicled the events following the bombing.

Hill, who has earned two Oscar nominations for Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street, will portray Richard Jewell, the Atlanta security guard who discovered a bomb in an Atlanta park during the 1996 Olympic Games.

Jewell was forced to turn to a lawyer friend (DiCaprio) when suspicion wrongly turned on him as a culprit in the terror attack.

The project would be a reunion for Eastwood and DiCaprio, who previously worked together on J Edgar.
