The Notable Films of 2011: Part Four

27 December 2010 9:58 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Damsels in Distress

Opens: 2011

Cast: Adam Brody, Analeigh Tipton, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Ryan Metcalf

Director: Whit Stillman

Summary: The story revolves around a group of style-obsessed college girls who take in a new student (Gerwig) and teach her their misguided ways of helping people at their grungy university.

Analysis: The first film in a decade from arthouse darling Whit Stillman, a filmmaker's filmmaker whose three Manhattan-based, yuppie-themed mannerist comedies - "Metropolitan," "Barcelona" and "The Last Days of Disco" - were a big influence on the likes of auteurs such as Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach. Stillman says this film varies somewhat from his previous trilogy of sorts, telling First Things that "This film is different, Completely different. Okay, not completely different, but it’s different".

Independently financed by Castle Rock CEO Martin Shafer, the project recently wrapped filming in Manhattan where Stillman returned to last year after having spent much »

About Cedar Rapids:

To call insurance agent Tim Lippe (Ed Helms), “naive” is a gross understatement. He’s never left his small hometown. He’s never stayed at a hotel. And he’s never experienced anything like Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Sent to represent »

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

The Black List Update: Picks 5 to 1 of 2008

10 December 2010 12:05 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Somewhat of a rarity that all three top vote-getters were put into production fairly quickly - and that 2011 will also be the year of release on the top trio of 2008. If there are any correlations to make it's that they're all comedies, relatively easier to mount and produce and grab an ensemble cast for short spurts. Will a comedy be the best ranked Black List item for 2010? We'll find out next week. 5. The Low Dweller (Votes: 40) Writer: Brad Ingelsby Status: Unknown When adding high-grade, A-lister talent to topline a given project, the nature of this business is that "priorities" easily shift -- it can take years to sort through what is next in line as is the case for Leo DiCaprio. He has his name on this one combined with his production house Appian Way, Relativity, Scott Free Productions, Energy Entertainment. This is about “a man trying to assimilate into »

2011 Sundance Film Festival: 60 Predictions List Recap

27 November 2010 1:05 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Next week, the Sundance Film Festival will unveil the 100+ features titles for their 27th edition (with the short film announcements made usually get release the week after) and this can only mean one thing: this past week was the official nail-biting, living next to the phone type of deal for several first time filmmakers. Though Redford's festival is the holy grail of U.S indie festivals, my word of advice to those who've received a "nay" type answer...you'll have other great opportunities to premiere your film. Every year I'll find some great examples of American indie debut films and then rhetorically ask why this didn't play in Park City? and this will surely be the case for a good number of the 60 predictions we made over the previous weeks and that are mentioned below (click here to commence the countdown or click on the individual titles below for a »

2011 Sundance Bonus Predictions: Jim Field Smith's Butter

18 November 2010 10:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

#52. Butter - Jim Field Smith The Weinsteins have a good rapport with the festival, and along with the hope of giving the Tiff preemed Submarine an extra showing in the Spotlight section, they might try to grab a Premieres space for Jim Field Smith's Butter. The film is officially ready (see Smith's pic) and footage was shown at the Afm - so they have the option of waiting until the fall, or gain entry into the theatrical market with a The Kids Are All Right mindset - build buzz early and position the family comedy early summer. Scripted by Jason Micallef (it's a really good screenplay - think Best in Show), set in a small Midwest town, this follows a young orphan who named Destiny, after being adopted by a Midwestern family, discovers she has an uncanny talent for butter-carving. She eventually finds herself up against the ambitious wife »

Jennifer Garner Takes a Time Out For Herself

5 November 2010 3:06 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Garner stepped out to visit a nail salon yesterday in La. The actress took time to pamper herself after a busy week of making school runs and casting her vote at the ballot box. Jennifer has been hanging out close to home with Violet and Seraphina lately, while her husband, Ben Affleck, promoted The Town and worked on a new movie, Oklahoma. She's made the most of her stint with the girls, though, taking them to stock up on books at the library and play at soccer practice. Jen's also just signed on for an upcoming film project, but we'll first get to see her on the big screen when both Butter and Arthur hit theaters in 2011. View 5 Photos › »

4 November 2010 11:30 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Violet Affleck carried her own tote bag as mom Jennifer Garner picked her up from school in La yesterday. Violet is one month away from her fifth birthday and already seems like an eager student with a passion for reading. Ben has been filming in Oklahoma, so Jen divides her time between park play dates and ice cream runs with their daughters, though she did take time on Tuesday to cast her votes at the polls. Jennifer is taking a break from comedies since wrapping Butter and Arthur, and is now exploring the world of fantasy films and will star opposite Australian actor Joel Edgerton in The Odd Life of Timothy Green.

Could you see Ashley Greene as ’Wonder Woman’?

5 October 2010 6:45 AM, PDT | Twilight Examiner | See recent Twilight Examiner news »

As you know, Ashley Greene ("Alice Cullen" in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2) has done her fair share of non-Twilight films over the past couple of years, including The Apparition, Butter, and Lol: Laughing Out Loud.

Still, post-Breaking Dawn, there's not a lot on the agenda that we know of yet, so the question of what she'll tackle next is definitely open and being discussed. One such discussion involves Wonder Woman, a character formerly portrayed by Lynda Carter (and many others in various other films and shows over the years).

According to some (see here for a video discussion of the matter and here for another run-down), Greene's is one of the names bein »
