As the days go on, a tenuous yet intense relationship seems to develop between journalist and subject. The two men bob and weave around each other, sharing laughs and also possibly revealing hidden frailties . but it's never clear how truthful they are being with each other. Ironically, the interview was never published, and five days of audio tapes were packed away in Lipsky's closet. The two men did not meet again. The new movie is directed by James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now) and »

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) is giving us our first look at Michael Fassbender as iconic entrepreneur and Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a new look at the man behind the ubiquitous Apple revolution.
This isn’t your typical chronological biopic on the man behind the iGeneration, and hopefully by now, we’ve all forgotten about that other Steve Jobs movie with Ashton Kutcher. In Steve Jobs, the action is set backstage at three of the brand’s iconic product launches: the Mac in 1984, the NeXT in 1997, and the iPod in 2001. The film will chart an already successful Jobs through a career low and exile from Apple, before he returns to unveil the revolutionary iPod.

Read More: Cannes Review: Joachim Trier's 'Louder Than Bombs' is a Complex Family Drama Done Right Jesse Eisenberg has had a stellar run since netting an Oscar nomination for his work on David Fincher's "The Social Network" in 2010. This year arguably marks the actor's biggest one yet following that career milestone. He kicked it off by appearing in James Ponsoldt's acclaimed Sundance drama "The End of the Tour," earning awards buzz for his performance in the indie drama. This week saw his latest film, "Louder Than Bombs," premiere at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in the main competition. Weeks before the event got underway, the first photo of Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Zack Snyder's 2016 blockbuster "Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice" surfaced online, amping up anticipation for his performance as the film's chief villain. In "Louder Than Bombs, directed by Joachim Trier ("Oslo, August 31st"), Eisenberg plays. »

With his first English language film, Joachim Trier (no direct relation to Lars) has made a picture that is in the broadest sense looking at Ptsd, with a twist that its focus is on the long terms effects it has on those around the sufferer. The film starts a few years after a war photographer has died in a car crash, allegedly an accident but really an act of suicide, seeing her widower and two sons still recovering when an exhibition of her work and incredibly personal Nyt retrospective are unveiled. That alone is an interesting take on a prevalent issue, but the subtextual aims are much grander.
Louder Than Bombs is an incredibly lucid film, jumping from dreams to hallucinations to flashbacks to documentary clips to internal monologues and back again with unfussed fluidity. All presented in a very natural manner, there’s no distinction between the imagined and the real, »

Read More: Why Michael Fassbender Thinks It's Important to Work With First-Time Filmmakers Despite a turbulent ride to production, the first trailer for Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" has us pretty excited. Michael Fassbender stars as the late Apple CEO and tech mastermind in what promises to be his definitive cinematic treatment. Envisioning a screenplay from "The Social Network" Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin, Boyle's film will explore the personal tradeoffs that came with Jobs' desire to revolutionize technology, and will balance his successes and failures in a sweeping account of his incredible life story. The debut trailer (posted above) neglects to show us much footage, but it's all the better for it. As the screen narrows in on Jobs, with his back to us as he looks towards an empty theater, the music quickens and the condemning voices of those closest to him -- played by the likes of Kate Winslet, »

It seems pretty obvious given what's on paper that, if you're interested in the annual film awards derby at year's end, you should be keeping a pretty close eye on "Steve Jobs." Produced by Oscar winners Scott Rudin ("No Country Old Men") and Christian Colson ("Slumdog Millionaire") along with nominee Mark Gordon ("Saving Private Ryan"), written by Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin ("The Social Network"), directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire") starring Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender ("12 Years a Slave") and winner Kate Winslet ("The Reader") — yeah, this is that "sight unseen" territory. And just like that, everyone forgot about that Ashton Kutcher movie. Of course, it goes without saying, buyer beware on that kind of thing. Every year something that looks like a perfect fit on paper ends up falling to the wayside. Each of those names have seen it happen, in fact, as well as the studio distributing the film: Universal Pictures. »

Universal has decided Sunday evening is the best time to premiere the first trailer for Steve Jobs offering the first look at Michael Fassbender as the founder of Apple. Directed by Danny Boyle (127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire) and written by Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network), the film is set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, taking us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter. Sorkin's screenplay was adapted with the aid of Walter Isaacson's best-selling biography of the Apple founder and co-stars Kate Winslet as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh; Seth Rogen as Steve Wozniak, who co-founded Apple; and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley. Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice) stars as Chrisann Brennan, Jobs' ex-girlfriend and Michael Stuhlbarg ("Boardwalk Empire") stars as Andy Hertzfeld, one »

After a long period of behind-the-scenes ups and downs, Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs has successfully made its way through production. But while the movie isn't coming out until October, today we have our first look at the film in the form of a brand new teaser trailer. Universal Pictures posted this first look trailer for Steve Jobs, which is pretty short on footage, but does still manage to showcase the movie's impressive cast - mostly through voice-over. It actually reminds me a lot of the first ever trailer for David Fincher's The Social Network - which also largely featured lines of dialogue, albeit over a variety of adjectives instead of a single shot from the film. Then again, this comparison isn't that hard to make when you consider the fact that Aaron Sorkin wrote the scripts for both films. Of course, while the clip does mostly feature footage »
Is it Oscar season yet?
The first trailer for Steve Jobs dropped on Sunday with Michael Fassbender taking the lead role as the famed CEO of Apple. The film, directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Aaron Sorkin, also stars Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Katherine Waterson, and Michael Stuhlbarg.
The first trailer is short, but shows enough to say that Boyle isn’t looking to glorify the man and is actually looking to take a look into the mind of one of the most famed figures of our time, much like Sorkin did with The Social Network. Fassbender is arguably one of the best actors working today so while they didn’t get Bale, they still have one »

"No one sees the world the same way you do." Wow! Universal has debuted the first trailer for the Steve Jobs movie, directed by Danny Boyle, starring Michael Fassbender as Jobs, and it's quite something to behold. In fact, if you're been anxiously awaiting this, you might as well hold your breath - it's only about 60 seconds long. Remember, this is the film with the Aaron Sorkin screenplay, supposedly taking place in 3 distinct scenes, one of them being the iPod unveiling which I believe this cheering moment might be from. Fassbender plays Steve Jobs and we get a good look at him. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Katherine Waterston and Jeff Daniels. I'm really, really looking forward to this - great first look so far. Here's the first official trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs, first found via Collider: Steve Jobs is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, »

Starve is a film from Griff Furst. Described by some reviewers as Saw-style torture porn (THR), this indie horror title is soon to darken DVD store shelves. The release is scheduled for this summer. And, the film stars Bobby Camp (The Final Destination), Mariah Bonner (The Social Network), Cooper Huckabee and Johnny McPhail. Also, this title was supposedly released on television, but this film fan could find no evidence of this. Starve has shown at film festivals, including Spain's Sitges International Film Festival, though. A preview of the film's DVD release is hosted here. In the story, three friends are kidnapped. They are trapped with several other people, in an abandoned building. Here, they are starved, unless they can find the fortitude and amorality to kill another. A loudspeaker encourages everyone's darker side to come out and kill! Mti Home Video will handle the release. And, Starve will be available on DVD, »

Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg on the Oscars' Red Carpet Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Steven Spielberg and daughter Destry Spielberg arrive at the 83rd Academy Awards, held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Spielberg has taken home two Best Director Oscars: Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998). Schindler's List also won Best Picture, but Saving Private Ryan lost to John Madden's Miramax-distributed Shakespeare in Love. There was quite a bit of animosity at the time, as some felt that Miramax, owned by brothers Bob and Harvey Weinstein, overdid its Oscar campaigning – while still managing to sway enough Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to vote for its film. Somewhat ironically, at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony Steven Spielberg presented the Best Picture Award to The King's Speech. Toplining Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush, Guy Pearce, and Claire Bloom, this British production was »

As recently announced, Saving Mr. Banks' director John Lee Hancock's next film will be The Founder, a corporate bopic about the early years and rise to global domination of the McDonald's fast food corporation. Michael Keaton is in place at the top of the cast as Ray Kroc, the Illinois businessman who liked the company so much he bought it. And now Laura Dern is in talks to join the project as Kroc's first wife Ethel.The story revolves around Kroc, who encountered Mac And Dick McDonald running a small but efficient burger business in 1950s California. Recognising franchise potential in their business method, Kroc went into partnership with the brothers, and eventually bought their share of the business for a reasonably paltry $3m in 1961. He then went about turning it into the ubiquitous multi-billion dollar corporation we know today, by the sound of it rather neglecting Ethel in the process. »
Hot Pursuit has opened to critical panning and unfavorable audience reactions today. The $35 million Action-Comedy’s 6% rottentomatoes score, lack of persistent marketing and generally-unfunny jokes in its major trailer all point at a financial loss for Warner Bros. But there lies the hope for women filmmakers in this article: this movie was still released amidst all the panning, the negativity generally-aimed at female filmmakers, and the recent backlash from the leaked emails between Marvel CEOs concerning the perceived lack of appeal for female superhero films.
The leaked emails remind us of the general sexist attitude towards female filmmakers, specifically directors. The major studios, including Warner Bros, nowadays produce and distribute just a few dozen films a year with an average budget of over $100 million. All those superhero and mega-expensive films we’ve come to love, hate, and blog about are the proof. By now, we’ve all noticed that a »

Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' dancing, with Garrett Hedlund on the right Down memory lane: Garrett Hedlund and Kristen Stewart 'On the Road' images At the time best known as The Twilight Saga's conflicted human Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart was cast as the exuberant Marylou in Walter Salles' film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's iconic 1950s novel On the Road. Salles had been impressed with Stewart's pre-Twilight work in Sean Penn's Into the Wild. Based on LuAnne Henderson, Kerouac's close buddy Neal Cassady's first wife, Marylou is described as a "beautiful little sharp chick." Apparently, one who also likes to move seductively to the sound of music – as can be attested by the Kristen Stewart picture above, which first came out online in early 2011. Besides Stewart, On the Road also features Garrett Hedlund – at the time best known for Tron: Legacy – as Dean Moriarty, »
