Ike Barinholtz, 37

Actor-writer-producer

He plays daffy on “The Mindy Project,” but Barinholtz is a master of multitasking. He writes and produces on “Project,” recurs on HBO’s “Eastbound & Down” and FX’s “The League” and lends his voice on Hulu’s “The Awesomes.” But his recent resume doesn’t end there; the rangy Chicagoan has roles lined up in “The Nest” and “Angry Birds,” and got a thrill out of appearing in “Neighbors” this year because he got to be “in a movie with Zac Efron after being mistaken for him for so many years.” On the set, Barinholtz says he witnesses great leadership every day.

Barris sold numerous pilots over the years, but they never went to series. With ABC’s “Black-ish,” he decided to throw off the filters and create his most honest and autobiographical work, and he was rewarded with his biggest success. »

Tech Support: 'Birdman,' 'Unbroken' and 'Interstellar' set the mood for Best Cinematography

23 October 2014 1:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Commentators have noted that this year's Best Actor race is stacked with way more than five outstanding candidates. And they are right. But compared to Best Cinematography, Best Actor is positively paper thin. As usual, an embarrassment of riches is present in this category, which awards a film's director of photography (Dp). The cinematography branch is partial to gorgeous looking films, black-and-white films and war films. After years of resisting digital photography, the branch has also embraced 3D work this decade. Being a Best Picture nominee can also help immensely, but so can being a foreign-language film; the branch has an international eye like few others. In any particular year, most of the nominees tend to be returning contenders. Moreover, many first-time nominees (such as Philippe Le Sourde and Phedon Papamichael last year) tend to be veterans awaiting their first nomination. Having said that, there hasn't been a year with »

Filming Begins on David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis Starring Sandra Bullock, Anthony Mackie, Zoe Kazan & Billy Bob Thornton

13 October 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Filming is underway in New Orleans on director David Gordon Green’s (“Pineapple Express,” “George Washington”) feature adaptation of the critically acclaimed 2005 documentary Our Brand Is Crisis, starring Oscar winners Sandra Bullock (“The Blind Side”) and Billy Bob Thornton (“Sling Blade”).

When a group of American consultants accept the challenge of getting an unpopular Bolivian president re-elected, they realize they need help.

Just as all seems lost, the loathsome Pat Candy (Thornton), Jane’s worst enemy, arrives in town to work for the opposition. Suddenly things become personal and as the battle begins the consultants get to see Jane the legend in action. »

3 October 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There seems to be a new interest in the works of premiere spy-master John Le Carre. Recent years have seen the release of a number of Le Carre adaptations, from a new version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy to the recent A Most Wanted Man, with Philip Seymour Hoffman. Now, Le Carre’s work is moving back to the small screen in the form of a limited TV series based on The Night Manager, and Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston have signed on to star.

The Night Manager will be based on Le Carre’s 1993 novel that told the story of Jonathan Pine, a former British soldier now working as a night auditor for a luxurious hotel. There he meets Sophie, a French woman in possession of documents that incriminate Richard Onslow Roper, a black marketeer and arms dealer. When Sophie winds up dead, Pine joins up with some old »

Lost Benedict Cumberbatch Drama Surfaces in Russia (Video)

3 October 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Imagine my surprise to be in St. Petersburg and see a Benedict Cumberbatch movie about which I knew nothing. I discovered that Cumberbatch, now headed for an Oscar nomination in "The Imitation Game," starred in "Wreckers." The British independent film directed by first-time Director D. R. Hood premiered in the UK in 2011 after the star’s first season playing the title role in "Sherlock" and around the time of stand-out supporting roles in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "War Horse." Following its British release in 2011, in Japan in 2014 and on television in the Netherlands in 2012. the film never made it to the United States. In the intimate drama that The Guardian called a “sure-footed debut,” Cumberbatch plays David, a teacher who moves from London with his beautiful young wife Dawn (Claire Foy) to the rural village where he grew up with his young brother, Nick ("Endeavour"‘s Shaun Evans). Bliss ensues — chickens are. »

Simon McBurney Enlisted For Mission: Impossible 5

2 October 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In franchise terms, the three years between Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and upcoming sequel Mission: Impossible 5, is a whopping gap. Paramount Pictures and Skydance’s decision to wait until the perfect line-up was assembled is a gamble that seems to be paying off. As the follow-up continues its shoot, Variety has the news of another pawn added to the espionage mix: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy‘s Simon McBurney.

So far we’ve little to go on in terms of story for the fifth instalment, which makes the details of McBurney’s role redundant. According to Variety, he’ll play the boss of franchise newcomer, Rebecca Ferguson. The report re-confirms the addition of Prometheus star Sean Harris to the cast, who’s reportedly on board to play the movie’s big bad. Alec Baldwin is also attached in an undisclosed role.

The top 25 must-see movies of 2015

2 October 2014 5:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Next year’s full to bursting with potentially brilliant geek films, so to help, here’s our pick of 25 must-see movies out in 2015…

Compiling a list of next year's most exciting films is extremely difficult. What do you put in? What do you leave out? Those are some of the questions we've had to ask ourselves as we drew up the long-list of our most anticipated films of 2015. In an attempt to limit the number of sequels which can fill up a list such as this, we've left out something like Fast & Furious 7, even though we're fairly sure it'll be a lot of fun. With but two significant exceptions, we've excluded some of the films we were looking forward to this year that have been delayed until the next, such as Kingsman: The Secret Service and Frankenstein. 

What we're left with, we hope, is a fairly broad selection of action and comedy, »

20th Century Fox Releases Epic New Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer

1 October 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

20th Century Fox has unveiled a new trailer for director Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated film, Exodus: Gods And Kings. The movie stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, John Turturro, Sigourney Weaver, Ben Mendelsohn and Ben Kingsley.

This is a film that requires an IMAX viewing and one that would have been presented in Cinemascope years ago. The scale of it looks like Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments and going by the visuals from this new trailer, Scott has mastered Epic as an artform.

20th Century Fox previewed parts of the film for the media on Tuesday. Variety’s Awards Editor Tim Gray writes the film falls into the,

“they don’t make ‘em like that anymore” category, with big battle scenes and aerial panoramas of ancient cities, rustic settlements and military camps, all rendered in 3D CGI glory. And the footage really shifted into high gear »
