Recommended Discs & Deals of the Week: ‘Crimson Peak,’ ’99 Homes,’ ‘Whiplash,’ and More

9 February 2016 7:15 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

99 Homes (Ramin Bahrani)

Ramin Bahrani made a name for himself with three independent films over the last decade, focusing on humanity’s daily struggles, reinvented foreign lives in America, and a fundamental sense of decency. With 2012’s At Any Price and this year’s 99 Homes, Bahrani has twice returned to the festival that launched his career, presenting the evolution of those themes. Not coincidentally, the worst years of the financial crisis stand between his acclaimed Goodbye, Solo and the tepidly received 2012 picture, »

Box Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Trumps ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ ‘Pride & Prejudice & Zombies’ Flops

7 February 2016 8:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood fumbled the ball during a quiet Super Bowl weekend at the multiplexes as new releases such as “Hail, Caesar!” and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” failed to make much noise.

For the second weekend in a row, DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3” easily topped box office charts. The animated sequel added $21 million to its $69 million domestic haul. The film is playing particularly well in China, where it is being distributed by Oriental DreamWorks, a $330-million East-West joint venture. It crossed the $100 million mark in the People’s Republic this weekend after opening day-and-date in the U.S. and China on Jan. 29.

Universal’s “Hail, Caesar!,” a sendup of the Hollywood studio system from the Coen brothers, fared best among the new entrants, though that’s grading on a generous curve. It picked up a mediocre $11.4 million for a second place finish. A C-minus CinemaScore could spell trouble for the film’s long-term prospects, »

Box Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ Dominates ‘Caesar,’ ‘Zombies,’ ‘Choice’

5 February 2016 3:10 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Po the Panda will rule the U.S. box office again with Fox’s “Kung Fu Panda 3″ nabbing at least $20 million at 3,955 theaters this weekend, early estimates showed Friday.

The animated comedy will leave a trio of new entries in the dust during a typically subdued Super Bowl weekend, led by Universal’s George Clooney comedy “Hail, Caesar!” with $9.5 million at 2,231 sites. The Coen Brothers’ look at 1950s Hollywood commanded a moderate $3.5 million on Friday, including $543,000 in Thursday night previews.

Sony’s horror-drama spoof “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” was headed for $9 million at 2,930 sites with a $3 million opening day on Friday. The movie is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s parody of  Jane Austen’s iconic 1813 novel.

Only a modest number of moviegoers were choosing “The Choice,” which opened Friday with about $2.5 million at 2,631 sites on its way to a $6.5 million weekend for Lionsgate’s romancer.

Cool Videos: Celebrate 30 years of Coen brothers films with this supercut

5 February 2016 11:49 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Now that Hail, Caesar! is out in theaters, I figured it'd be a good time to look back at the past 30 years to see the directorial stylings of the Coen brothers. Evidently I wasn't the only one, as YouTube user somersetVII as uploaded a supercut of the 16 films leading up to Caesar. Raising Arizona, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men and True Grit are just some of the films you'll... Read More »

Sign of the Cross: The Coen Bros. Revisit the Backlot Desires of Hollywood’s Golden Era

The Coen Bros., back with their first title since 2013’s Cannes darling Inside Llewyn Davis, step back to an even earlier era with Hail, Caesar!, a 1950s set allegory parallelizing movie studio heads with their supernatural equivalent—God. A rather stressful day unfolds on the backlot of Capitol Pictures, where a leading star currently set to film the final, important speech in a Biblical epic is kidnapped by a serene group of Communist writers. Meanwhile, the general cadre of hungry gossip columnists, disgruntled auteurs, and budding celebrities must be continuously juggled and groomed by the studio’s omnipotent figurehead. It’s an ideal environment for the duo, who seem to be consistently recapitulating earlier films and eras, like their rehash of True Grit (2010). There’s something about this latest effort which hints at the »

The Odd Reason Josh Brolin Thinks He Works So Well With The Coens

5 February 2016 8:49 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

This weekend, audiences will be able to watch Josh Brolin star in the brand new film from Joel and Ethan Coen. but that.s hardly a first-time event. The actor and the filmmakers first united during the making of the Best Picture-winning No Country For Old Men, and came back together a few years later for the new adaptation of True Grit. Clearly they work well together, but what could explain the reason why? Well, according to Brolin it all has to deal with their respective ability to exploit each other.s weaknesses. I had the pleasure of sitting down one-on-one with Josh Brolin earlier this week to discuss his role in the new film Hail, Caesar!, and it was during a discussion about his working relationship with the Coen brothers that the actor revealed his thoughts on the matter. I asked Brolin if developing a Coen-created character varies from »

11 Essential Coen Brothers Movies

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Have filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen been getting too conventional?

Already this decade, they've made a classical western ("True Grit") and written three relatively irony-free scripts for other directors (including Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" and Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies").

Fortunately, for fans of the brothers' earlier work, their new period Hollywood farce, "Hail, Caesar!" (opening Feb. 5), looks like it could be a return to form -- full of absurd, satirical touches, with maybe just a little food for thought. If you're wondering why the writing-directing-producing-editing siblings are such a big deal, or how they got to where they are now, go back and watch these gems from their three-decades-plus career.

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »

Box Office: ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ No Match for Super Bowl

3 February 2016 2:21 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Clooney, Nicholas Sparks and some zombie hordes will take the field against the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, as a few brave movies try to hold off Super Bowl mania in what is shaping up to be a quiet weekend at the multiplexes.

The hope for “Hail Caesar!,” “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and “The Choice” is that the three new releases can make enough money on Friday and Saturday to tide them over through Sunday when millions of Americans will be glued to the big game. Football’s starriest weekend is traditionally a fallow period for movie-going — 2008’s “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour” holds the record for a Super Bowl gross with $31.1 million, with last year’s “American Sniper” slightly behind that result with $30.6 million.

None of the trio of newcomers will come close to matching those figures. Barring an upset, »

How the Coen Brothers Survived Hollywood and Lived to Make ‘Hail, Caesar!’

3 February 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Coen brothers are just as quirky as the characters from their movies. Just ask Josh Brolin, who has collaborated three times with the writer-directors, including on the upcoming “Hail, Caesar!” He recalls meeting the brothers on his “No Country for Old Men” audition, and not knowing what to do with the awkward silences. “Joel was intimidating,” Brolin says. “He didn’t say anything.” Months later, he was having dinner with Ethan, and noticed his friend continually glancing at his lap. “I looked down,” Brolin says. “He had been reading a book under the table. I was like, ‘Come on!’ ”

In this age of Twitter and Instagram, the directors of such beloved classics as “The Big Lebowski,” “Blood Simple” and “Raising Arizona” are still fairly private — and awkward with press interviews. Although they grew up together making films on their Super 8 cameras in Minnesota, »

Recommended Discs & Deals of the Week: ‘Bridge of Spies,’ ‘Snow White,’ and More

Bridge of Spies (Steven Spielberg)

Tom Hanks has a cold, and he needs to save America. A natural follow-up to Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln in its immersion into nitpicky political discussion, Bridge of Spies also distinguishes itself with a wittier, frequently downright sarcastic screenplay (mostly courtesy, one imagines, of the Coen brothers), more agile camerawork (the ten-minute opening jaunt through Mark Rylance’s Brooklyn morning has been a justified source of attention), and a different kind of lead »

Quiz: The Coen Brothers

1 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Ever since they broke onto the scene, The Coen Brothers have been praised as two of the best filmmakers of our generation. This week, their first film since 2013’s Inside Llewyn Davis is hitting the big screen—an elaborate Hollywood satire with a star-studded cast, called Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Caesar! follows Hollywood fixer Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) who has to keep many big name actors in line. Things get complicated, however, when leading man Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is kidnapped by an organization who call themselves “The Future”. The Coens have always been great at dark, sharp humour, andHail. Caesar! looks like it will be on a whole other scale in comparison to many of their low-key independent features.

In celebration of the release, we’re here to quiz you on your Coen Brothers knowledge. With hits like Fargo, True GritNo Country for Old Men, and Burn After Reading, »

The 10 Best Westerns Of The Past 20 Years

26 January 2016 8:05 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

To paraphrase Mark Twain: "The reports of the western.s death have been greatly exaggerated." Sure, unlike the first sixty years of Hollywood . from the 1900s to the 1960s . the Western genre might not define cinema in quite the same way anymore. But the repeated declarations that the genre is dead are way off. Ever since 1992.s Unforgiven, movie enthusiasts have written off the western as a has-been. But over the last 24 years there have been a number of films that prove it.s still excelling. The latest example, Jane Got A Gun, starring Natalie Portman and Joel Edgerton, is being released this week. And to celebrate, here are 10 of the best Westerns of the last 20 years, which prove there.s still plenty of life left in the old horse yet.

‘Bone Tomahawk’ Review

26 January 2016 8:23 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Matthew Fox, Kurt Russell, Richard JenkinsPatrick Wilson, Lili Simmons, David Arquette, Evan Jonigkeit, Fred Melamed, Sid Haig, Maestro Harrell, James Tolkan, Kathryn Morris | Written and Directed by S. Craig Zahler

Shot in just 21 days Bone Tomahawk is a slow burning western/horror hybrid. It stars Lost’s Matthew Fox, Hateful Eight’s man of the flared up moustache – slightly trimmed for this role – Kurt Russell, Cabin In The Woods’ Richard Jenkins and season two Fargo’s Patrick Wilson. This quartet of acting talent is forced together to go off in search of Wilson’s kidnapped wife (TV’s Lili Simmons), jailcell grifter Purvis (David Arquette) and the Deputy Sheriff (Evan Jonigkeit). They’ve been taken, we are told, by a primitive, violent tribe of native Americans known as troglodytes.

It’s safe to say that writer/director S. Craig Zahler’s Bone Tomahawk is trading more on its »

Roger Deakins on ‘Hail, Caesar!,’ Old Hollywood and Going Back to Celluloid

25 January 2016 3:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Cinematographer Roger Deakins is enjoying the afterglow of his 13th Oscar nomination, for “Sicario.” But in the meantime, he has another film heading to theaters next week: Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Hail, Caesar!” It’s notable because it’s the first project Deakins has shot on film since the last time he collaborated with the Coens on 2010’s “True Grit.” Since then he has clung to the virtue of digital, and judging by some of his comments discussing the filmmaker siblings’ latest, he’s clearly eager to get back to the ones and zeroes of the future.

***

This is one of the Coen brothers’ funniest movies. Some of the Ralph Fiennes stuff just had me in the aisles.

Oh good, good. Yeah I’ll be interested how audiences receive the movie. Like some of that stuff, it’s quite quirky isn’t it?

It made me wonder if you »
