At this point in the Oscars 2017 race not all of the films that are likely to garner awards attention have even been screened yet for the press, let alone made their way to the big screen for general audiences. This leaves many of the categories still up in the air, with one of the biggest being the contest for the best actor trophy.
One of the standouts from what movies have been viewed already is that of Miles Teller in the Bleed for This, which tells the inspirational story of boxing champ Vinny Pazienza (aka Vinny Paz). At just 29, the young thespian could be poised to join the very small pool of those who were nominated for best actor category.
It’s rare that the Academy acknowledge youth when it comes to the crop of those in the best actor category which is, »

“I am going to use this as platform to rally against the Producers ‘Guild’ with a vengeance,” Brunetti wrote to PGA exec director Vance Van Petten. “This is the last straw with me of my guild screwing me over. Your purpose is to protect me, yet continually you have done the opposite and caused me grief and stress. I want to dismantle that joke of a guild to the ground.”
Brunetti also posted the letter on his Facebook page. “It is time for a new regime there to bring that outdated place up to the times and have people who actually produce get their deserved credit, not what some ‘board’ of has-beens in an office determines,” he wrote. “I doubt those who made this decision »

So this doesn't qualify as movie news, I know, but it's still pretty fun nonetheless.
Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook CEO and the central figure in David Fincher's The Social Network, has teased that he wants to make his own J.A.R.V.I.S.-style AI for his home. For the uninitiated, that's an Iron Man reference, as Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark basically had the coolest virtual butler ever when he invented J.A.R.V.I.S. (voiced by Paul Bettany).
Nine months ago, Zuckerberg posted the following:
"I'm going to start by exploring what technology is already out there. Then I'll start teaching it to understand my voice to control everything in our home -- music, lights, temperature and so on. I'll teach it to let friends in by looking at their faces when they ring the doorbell. I'll teach it to let me »

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have had a busy week. After being announced as the composers for “Patriots Day,” Peter Berg’s upcoming dramatization of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Nine Inch Nails bandmates/film-score composers have released “A Minute to Breathe,” a new song from the climate-change documentary “Before the Flood.” Listen below.
Directed by Fisher Stevens (“The Cove”) and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, the film explores our planet’s current ecological state of affairs with an eye toward a potentially bleak future. “Climate change is the most critical and urgent problem facing our world today, and it must be a top issue for voters this election day,” DiCaprio told The Hollywood Reporter last month. “Fisher and I set out to make a film that not only educates people about the challenges we face if we fail to act, »

Some events test our courage, Some people inspire our strength, And some moments define our spirit.

In the aftermath of an unspeakable attack, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Mark Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they strike again. Weaving together the stories of »

Some may wonder exactly what the story is behind Patriots Day, the Peter Berg film about the Boston Marathon bombing, and while the trailer is heavy on showcasing the drama of the event, and making sure you see the people starring in it, it does give you a little glimpse of Mark Wahlberg‘s character.
It looks as though we are going into the lives of some of the figures associated with the rescue/relief effort and the hunt for the bombers.
The crossing guard remark might not be what I chose to highlight in the trailer, but this is clearly a look at the film that isn’t after revealing too much, so there might not have been much to work with.

It’s safe to say that Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor has successfully made a name for himself in the world of film scoring, having won an Oscar for his score in David Fincher’s “The Social Network” and written the scores for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Gone Girl.” However, now Reznor is on track to accumulate some cult film cred through his work with David Lynch.

It sounds like director Peter Berg is pulling out all the stops for Patriots Day, his movie about the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. He’s already got one of Boston’s favorite sons, Mark Wahlberg, starring in it, along with J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, and Kevin Bacon. Now, as reported by Consequence Of Sound, Berg has enlisted Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to compose original music for the Patriots Day score. Berg made the announcement on his Instagram, explaining that he’s “honored” to be working with “these two straight-up genius artists.” He also adds that they’ll be “bringing their deep soul and fury” to the film.
Reznor previously worked on the score to The Social Network, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl, so this Boston Marathon bombing movie seems like a bit of a departure. In terms of subject matter, at ...

Peter Berg appears to have found his niche. After “Lone Survivor” and this week’s “Deepwater Horizon,” the filmmaker is about to complete his based-on-fact trifecta with “Patriots Day,” a dramatization of the Boston Marathon bombings. According to Berg’s Instagram, he’s found the film’s composers: Trent Reznor Atticus Ross.
He announced the news yesterday with a blurry photo and appreciative caption: “I couldn’t be more honored than to be working with these two straight up genius artists. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Bringing their deep soul and fury to @patriotsdayfilm @treznor.” Reznor and Ross won an Oscar for composing the score to David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” later collaborating with the filmmaker again on “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and “Gone Girl.”

The moment Sony fast-tracked plans to develop an American version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in 2011 – only two years after the release of the original, Noomi Rapace version – a handful of moviegoers were understandably perplexed.
Drafting in top-tier talent in the form of Daniel Craig, director David Fincher and The Social Network‘s Rooney Mara as the enigmatic Lisbeth Salander, the end product was a chilling, largely enjoyable psychological thriller, and though Sony had initially mapped out plans to adapt Stieg Larsson’s full Millennium series, off the back of lowly box office returns, those plans quickly unravelled.
Indeed, interest in the English-language version appears to be waning and waning fast, but as is so often the case, Sony’s radio silence on the matter has only fuelled speculation regarding Dragon Tattoo‘s future. Early on, reports claimed the studio wanted to push on with its adaptation sans »

After impressing in David Fincher’s The Social Network, Rooney Mara made her big breakthrough as Lisbeth Salander in Fincher’s subsequent English language adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. She snagged an Oscar nomination for the role, and was due to return for the two follow-ups, The Girl Who Played With Fire and The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest.
Box office can be cruel, though, and the 2011 movie grossed $232m worldwide, off a $90m plus marketing and distribution costs budget. It wasn’t a bad return, but it wasn’t what Sony was hoping for. Thus, the film of The Girl Who Played With Fire stalled, even though a screenplay was said to be in place.

Rooney Mara, you’ll surely recall, solidified her presence in the film world by starring in David Fincher’s remake of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” after stealing the opening scene of his “The Social Network” a year earlier. The film was always intended as a one-off for its director, who had no intention of helming any further entries in the series (there are four novels), but that may not be true of Mara. Asked about returning to the franchise in a Screen Daily interview, the actress responded, “Yes, I’m still open to it but I’m not holding out hope any more.”

Mara received an Academy Award nomination for her starring role in the film; she received another, in the Supporting category, for her performance alongside Cate Blanchett in last year’s “Carol.” The role »
