Newswire: Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones are headed to deep space for some father-son bonding

6 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Deadline reports that Tommy Lee Jones and Brad Pitts are headed to space, with both actors close to signing on to James Gray’s new film, Ad Astra. The plot kind of sounds like a darker, more Joseph Conrad-y version of the parental space drama of Interstellar, with Pitt as an astronaut trying to figure out what happened during an interplanetary mission that saw his dad (Jones) disappear 20 years earlier.

This’ll be Pitt’s third attempt in recent years to star in one of Gray’s films; most notably, he was previously attached to the director’s critically lauded The Lost City Of Z, before scheduling problems forced him to depart. »

Robert Pattinson Talks “Sexual Experiments” Plotline Of ‘High Life,’ Lines Up Movie ‘Embrace Of The Serpent’ Director

22 June 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“Twilight” allowed Robert Pattinson the opportunity to ride his fame into auteur-driven projects, and it looks like he’s in no hurry to get back to blockbuster land. And why should he? The actor received some of the best notices of his career this spring at Cannes for his turn in Josh and Benny Safdie‘s “Good Time,” he was excellent in James Gray‘s lovely “The Lost City Of Z,” and with name recognition enough to help get adventurous projects off the ground, Pattinson is in a pretty good place.

Oscars at the Halfway Mark: ‘Logan,’ ‘Get Out’ and Women Directors

22 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The year is half over and Oscar voters need to catch up on their homework. There have been many worthwhile films in the first six months of 2017, including “Get Out” from writer-director Jordan Peele (Universal, Blumhouse); “Logan,” the dark, tender neo-Western from director James Mangold (Fox); and the sumptuous mega-hit “Beauty and the Beast” (director Bill Condon, Disney).

A few years ago, these would have been extreme longshots, at best. But there have been changes in Academy voters and their tastes. Recent winners including “Moonlight,” “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Ex Machina” prove that voters are redefining what is considered “Oscar bait.” The blurred definition is a challenge to awards strategists, but good news for hopefuls.

Oscars: 13 Deserving Contenders From 2017 So Far

The January-June period has seen many other films with Oscar potential in various categories; see the accompanying reminders by Variety colleagues Kris Tapley and Jenelle Riley. And, needless to say, other contenders will be covered a lot before the March 4, 2018, Oscar ceremony.

Diversity has been a key theme. This year, several films directed by women could be in the mix, including Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled” (Focus Features), Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” (Warner Bros.), and Aisling Walsh’s “Maudie” (Sony Pictures Classics). Still to come are works from Kathryn Bigelow (Annapurna’s much-buzzed “Detroit”), Dee Rees (Netflix’s “Mudbound”); Margaret Betts (Sony Classics’ “Novitiate”) and Angelina Jolie (Netflix’s “First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers”).

There are also upcoming works from international filmmakers like Sebastian Lelio, Alfonso Gomez-Rijon, Michael Gracey, Yorgos Lanthimos and Taika Waititi. They will join veterans including Guillermo del Toro, Alexander Payne, Stephen Frears, Richard Linklater, Steven Spielberg, George Clooney, Darren Aronofsky and Paul Thomas Anderson.

Here are month-by-month opening dates, followed by a list of films that made a splash at the year’s film festivals so far. And the upcoming festivals will also add a few twists to the Oscar race.

The director and stars are listed for purpose of jogging readers’ memories; it’s not a matter of handicapping, since it’s pointless to make predictions about films that have not been widely seen.

July: “War for the Planet of the Apes” (directed by Matt Reeves; starring Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson; Fox)

August: “Detroit” (Kathryn Bigelow; John Boyega; Annapurna); “Logan Lucky” (Steven Soderbergh; Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig; Bleecker Street); “Patty Cake$” (Geremy Jasper; Danielle Macdonald; Searchlight); “Wind River” (Taylor Sheridan; Elizabeth Olsen; The Weinstein Co.).

September: “American Made” (Doug Liman; Tom Cruise; Universal); “Battle of the Sexes” (Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris; Emma Stone, Steve Carell; Fox Searchlight); “First They Killed My Father” (Angelina Jolie; Netflix); “Victoria and Abdul” (Stephen Frears; Judi Dench; Focus).

‘Beatriz at Dinner’ Pulls Specialty Crowds as ‘My Cousin Rachel’ Struggles

11 June 2017 10:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fox Searchlight pushed Rachel Weisz melodrama “My Cousin Rachel” into national release this prime summer weekend, which boasts only one new wide studio opening. But the romantic mystery thriller failed to click with audiences.

On the other hand, Roadside Attractions kept Miguel Arteta’s Sundance hit “Beatriz at Dinner” in limited dates, where the edgy and compelling story of a mismatched dinner at a Southern California estate thrived in its first limited run. With a $30,000+ per theater average and a potential appeal beyond core art house audiences, this Salma Hayek starrer could make a significant impact in upcoming weeks.

Eleanor Coppola’s romance “Paris Can Wait” continues to lead wider releases, at a decent level for its theater break but significantly below such top 2016 crossover performers as “Love and Friendship” and “The Lobster” at this time.

Well Damn, Brad Pitt Is Looking Pretty Good These Days

9 June 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Brad Pitt is back on the scene to promote his recent projects, including Netflix's War Machine and Okja and The Lost City of Z, all of which he produced. I'm not going to make any Benjamin Button jokes here, but I will say that the 53-year-old actor is looking pretty damn good these days. After a particularly rough 2016, Brad seems to be getting back into the groove of heating up red carpets and bringing his handsomeness to more Hollywood events. This week, he also showed off his sense of humor during a stop at The Jim Jefferies Show, making a cameo as a weatherman and giving a hilariously bleak weather report in the wake of Donald Trump's decision to pull the Us out of the Paris Climate Accord.

Charlie Hunnam Reveals Why He Tied the Knot at Age 18

7 June 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

You may know all about Charlie Hunnam's longtime girlfriend, Morgana McNelis, but did you know that he was actually married back in the early 2000s? The British actor recently opened up to the Associated Press about tying the knot with actress Katharine Towne when he was 18 years old, revealing that the pair met during a Dawson's Creek audition and eloped to Vegas three weeks later. "It was the first time I'd ever been in love," he said, adding that he had to return to England and they were worried about losing touch. He explained, "In our 18-year-old minds, we thought, 'What if we never see each other again? Let's get married, and then we'll have to see each other again, even if it's just to get divorced.'" The couple was married from 1999 to 2002 in what Charlie called "three terrible, painful, expensive years," but in a "small victory," he »

‘Wonder Woman’ Sends Indie Box Office Straight to Hades

4 June 2017 10:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wonder Woman” captured the weekend zeitgeist with reviews as good as any new adult-appeal specialized opener — and gobbled up potential audience. But that’s not the sole reason the specialty box office went to hell this weekend.

“Churchill” (Cohen), with the pedigree of an arthouse crossover winner, went nationally in top theaters but failed to capture more than desultory business. A trio of niche releases showed some mid-level interest in New York and Los Angeles — “The Exception”(A24), “Letters from Baghdad” (Vitagraph), and “Band Aid”(IFC) — but none looks likely to cross over beyond the big-city arthouse market.

The scariest weekend news: the total lack of response to Ken Loach’s Cannes 2016 Palme d’Or-winner “I, Daniel Blake.” While it’s been a long wait after a year-end qualifying run, it’s shocking that the well-reviewed BAFTA-winner met with near total disinterest.

‘Long Strange Trip’ Gets Box Office Boost from Deadheads

28 May 2017 10:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This Memorial Day weekend at the specialty box office is dominated by niche releases without much crossover theatrical appeal, often available for home viewing. The strongest performer:  Sundance entry “Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of the Grateful Dead” (Abramorama), which opened in two cities, combining Thursday night event shows and full-week dates to overcome its four-hour running time.

While “The Tree of Life,” “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Before Midnight” all opened on this date, since 2013 top distributors have chosen not to launch major releases over the three-day holiday.

June will bring some top releases to flesh out a slow schedule, including Sofia Coppola’s Cannes success “The Beguiled” (Focus Features). Cannes competition films from Bong Joon Ho (“Okja”) and Noah Baumbach (“The Meyerowitz Stories”) will hit Netflix and select day-and-date theaters in June, and sometime after that, respectively.

‘Black Mirror’: Why Charlie Brooker Wrote ‘San Junipero’ To Screw with His Netflix Critics

26 May 2017 9:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Netflix announced it would finance the third season of the British sci-fi anthology “Black Mirror,” series creator Charlie Brooker knew he’d be accused of selling out. And then, the much-regarded, much-discussed “San Junipero” episode seemed to confirm his critics’ worst fears. For a show that revolved around dark stories of the future in which technology wreaks havoc, here was a fairly optimistic story about two women failing in love in the virtual-reality world of a sunny California beach town in the ’80s.

“‘San Junipero’ was the first script I wrote for season three, and it was partly I thought I’m going to blow up my idea of what a ‘Black Mirror’ episode is, so it has a very different tone,” said Brooker, who joined IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast with executive producer Annabel Jones. “And partly, I’d read people moaning, ‘Oh, I see Black Mirror’s gone to Netflix, »

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword movie review: well I didn’t vote for him

22 May 2017 8:27 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Derivative, rote, devoid of heart and hope. Guy Ritchie has found no reason to retell Arthur’s story, or to render a mythic hero as a self-serving thug. I’m “biast” (pro): big fantasy fan

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There are no heroes anymore. There are self-centered bastards who accidentally stumble into heroics. There are sociopaths who abuse women and are lauded for it. There are criminals who receive official sanction for their antisocial behavior. And we’re meant to cheer for them all. But true heroes in the more traditional meaning of the word? Difficult to find onscreen at the moment.

There are no heroes anymore, just criminals and sociopaths we’re meant to cheer.

And now Guy Ritchie has engaged in an egregious de-heroing of cinema with his King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. »

‘Wakefield’ and ‘Abacus’ Lead Openers, But ‘Paris Can Wait’ Rules

21 May 2017 11:40 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend, the entire specialized industry is huddled in Cannes in search of the next big things. On the home front, just three noteworthy films opened, each on a single Manhattan screen. Two of them, the Bryan Cranston-starring “Wakefield” and Steve James’ financial world set documentary “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail,” showed some life.

Eleanor Coppola’s “Paris Can Wait” had a promising second-weekend expansion, and looks to be the standout  over the next month and more. Still, results remain minor after a couple post-awards months led by “Gifted” and “The Zookeeper’s Wife.”

Opening

Wakefield (IFC) – Metacritic: 60; Festivals include: Telluride, Toronto 2016

$14,120 in 1 theater: PTA (per theater average): $14,120

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword review – medieval banter, slapdash mythology

20 May 2017 11:59 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Guy Ritchie’s film is low on originality, but might please devotees of his shtick

Charlie Hunnam is a handsome, hulking blond whose easy charm seems familiar, but implacable. Then I remember where I’ve seen him before: Pacific Rim. And Crimson Peak, and Children of Men, and on the poster for The Lost City of Z. Here, he’s Arthur, a roguish ruffian with a geordie accent and royal blood in his veins, and the ability to pull a sword called Excalibur from – you guessed it – a stone.

But Hunnam is rather good; funny, likable, believably invested in Arthur’s emotional arc. He is not a big enough name to carry a franchise as generic as this one, but there are glimmers of star power that sparkle in the film’s comedic scenes. Elsewhere, Jude Law, always better and more convincing as a slimy villain, camps it up as evil Vortigern, »

Cannes 2017: Okja review: Dir. Bong Joon Ho (2017)

Okja review: Netflix announce their arrival at Cannes with this stunning piece of work from master director Bong Joon Ho.

Okja review by Paul Heath at the 2017 Festival de Cannes.

Okja review

Netflix officially enter the weird world of Cannes with Bong Joon Ho’s latest offering, the fantasy epic that is Okja. Save for a minor hiccup at the start of proceedings at the first press screening at the famous Palais de Festivals on Friday morning – the waiting critics were shown the opening six minutes in the wrong aspect ratio with heads massively cut-off – the streamer was seemingly welcomed to the festival with open arms, the international press clapping and cheering when the Netflix logo popped up.

Snowpiercer helmer Bong Joon Ho directs this interesting epic; part family drama, part political offering with edge of your seat moments and laugh out loud comedic sequences. »
