What cinema showed us in 2012

26 December 2012 11:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Visions of the American apocalypse, camp tough guys, and teen stars ruining their clean-cut reputations … it's been quite a year on the big screen

Wrecked America

Sure, the Mayans were wrong, but turns out we're off to hell in a handcart anyway. From Beasts of the Southern Wild to Bombay Beach, Killing Them Softly to The Queen of Versailles, Hollywood took us on a guided tour of a land blighted by ecological and economic collapse. Be sure to stop in at the gift shop on your way out.

Dogs in peril

Last year was vintage for big-screen mutts, with pooches stealing the show on The Artist, and making the posters for Hugo and Young Adult. Call it karma, then, that 2012 has metaphorically drowned Uggie's puppies. Bonnie the shih tzu was snatched in Seven Psychopaths, Poppy the terrier abducted in Sightseers. But they get off lightly compared with Fanny the springer spaniel in The Hunt. »

Nicole as Grace on Paris Match

26 December 2012 8:16 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I haven't mentioned Nicole Kidman in forever! (heh) The goddess has been busy. In addition to awards press for The Paperboy, she's been been filming Grace of Monaco and now she's covering Paris Match.

I tend to like Nicole's riskier messy projects more than her prestige polished ones. Give me a Dogville or a The Paperboy any day over a Cold Mountain or a Human Stain (anyone remember that one?). So I'm not looking forward to Grace of Monaco or The Railway Man, her 2013 films, in quite the way I usually look forward to her projects but I'll definitely see them for her. Stoker on the other hand...

I'm not sure that cover does Nicole any favors but I've been steeling myself for the inevitable "she's too old to play Grace Kelly" criticisms to come, which will conveniently forget that Grace Kelly lived to be 52 and that we only think »

David Oyelowo Talks The '70s Influences Of 'Jack Reacher,' Says Lee Daniels' 'The Butler' Is 'Forrest Gump'-Esque

21 December 2012 9:24 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

David Oyelowo is one of those actors who has had a very, very good year. He started off 2012 by being a part of George Lucas' World War II epic "Red Tails," made a splash with the Cannes debut of Lee Daniels' pulpy "The Paperboy," and is closing out the year with two high-profile performances – he can be seen briefly at the start of Steven Spielberg's beloved "Lincoln" and stars as one of the heavies in the hotly anticipated "Jack Reacher," where he stars alongside Tom Cruise in the first adaptation of Lee Child's wildly popular book series. We recently got to talk to Oyelowo about what it was like making "Jack Reacher" (including shooting that bad-ass car chase), being a part of "Lincoln," what his favorite movie of the year was, whether or not he'd be in the next "Mission: Impossible" and what we can expect »

Nicole Kidman Wore a Tiara To Our Interview

20 December 2012 8:01 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel, it's Nicole!" 

[!!!] 

After the briefest of pauses in which we both waited for my bewilderment to pass -- Nicole Kidman is calling me (?) -- she let out a hearty familiar laugh, instantly delighting and relaxed. She was, as it happened, a full hour early to our scheduled interview, having just finished a day's filming on Grace of Monaco. 

Academy voters will be filling out their nomination ballots online for the first time this year -- they started voting this week and will continue through Thursday, January 3rd. One prays that this shake-up to their old school paper & pen system might also shake up their aesthetic palette. If it does, you'll hear Nicole Kidman's name read out for her genius star turn in The Paperboy. In this polarizing sweaty film, Nicole plays a tawdry beautician with a thing for violent inmates. This is not, as you have undoubtedly ascertained whilst reading about the film, »

'Lincoln' Surges in Our Latest Awards Predictions List

19 December 2012 4:10 PM, PST | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

The last seven days brought us the Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominations, which managed to shake up the awards season a bit. I've now moved Django Unchained's Christoph Waltz from the Best Actor to Best Supporting Actor races in accordance with the change in his campaign. And Nicole Kidman seemed to come out of nowhere with SAG and Globe nods for her supporting performance in The Paperboy. Here's where I think things stand right now.   Best Picture 1. Lincoln 2. Les Miserables 3. Argo 4. Zero Dark Thirty 5. Silver Linings Playbook 6. Life of Pi 7. Django Unchained 8. Beasts of the Southern Wild 9. Amour 10. Moonrise Kingdom 11. The Master 12.

CAA Signs ‘Mad Men’ Star Jon Hamm

19 December 2012 3:52 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Exclusive: Here’s a hot signing before the biz goes away for the holidays. CAA has just signed Jon Hamm, the Mad Men star who recently left ICM Partners early last month following the exit of his longtime agent Carol Bodie. Hamm had taken meetings with a few of the agencies — Wme was the other major player — but he’s headed for CAA. Hamm should have a bright future in features. Like Alec Baldwin, he can play comedy as well as drama, and has done several inspired turns on Saturday Night Live and in the film Bridesmaids. He played serious in the Ben Affleck-directed The Town, and those blue-chinned guys like Hamm also work well in macho franchises. Wme didn’t come out of this empty handed, as the agency reportedly signed David Oyelowo, who left ICM Partners at the same time Hamm did and has reportedly signed with Wme. »

Zac Efron Will Play The First Doctor To Look At JFK In Assassination Pic 'Parkland'

19 December 2012 12:57 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, Zac Efron's first year questing for recognition in more adult roles was a bit of mixed bag. He is probably still best known at the end of 2012 for being peed on by Nicole Kidman in "The Paperboy," and his efforts in Ramin Bahrani's "At Any Price" seemed to be overlooked by those debating the merits of the earnest picture. But the former tween Disney star is pushing forward admirably, and like it or not, he's getting involved in a movie about one of the most defining and tragic moments in American history. Efron, along with Marcia Gay Harden, has joined "Parkland," a film that will be taking a look at the JFK assassination. The Tom Hanks-produced movie (cred alert!) is based on the book "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy" by renowned author and former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi that was adapted by Peter Landesman, »

Nicole Kidman Talks Surprise 'The Paperboy' Nominations from Set of 'Grace of Monaco,' Exclusive Skype Video

19 December 2012 12:13 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Nicole Kidman was shocked when she learned that her boldly brazen performance in Lee Daniels' outrageous southern gothic "The Paperboy" had earned both SAG and Golden Globe supporting actress nominations. While the indie film debuted in Cannes to mixed reaction and hardly set critics or audiences on fire, Kidman earned rave reviews. It's just possible that Academy actors will overlook the movie's trashy excesses to recognize Kidman's achievement. And so Kidman got on Skype, after a long shooting day playing Princess Grace in "Grace of Monaco" in Belgium, to talk about why she was willing to go almost all the way to play southern bombshell Charlotte Bless. The 45-year-old actress explains why she wants to take chances at this stage of her life. (She always has: see her Oscar-winning "The Hours" and Oscar-nominated "Rabbit Hole" and "Moulin Rouge," not to mention "Nine," "To Die For," »

The "Makeup and Hairstyling" Seven

15 December 2012 3:11 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Another day, another Oscar decision. The Academy's Makeup branch has narrowed the field in their annual bakeoffs and selected the following seven films as the best of the best in the Oscar category of Makeup and Hairstyling. They'll be whittled down to three for Nomination Morning on January 10th.

Will it be Les Miz's abused poor or Lincoln's bewigged politicians for the Hair and Makeup Oscar?

They are:

Hitchcock The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Lincoln Looper Men in Black 3 Les Misérables Snow White and the Huntsman 

Happiness! I'm shocked ("Best" usually meaning "Most" with Oscar) but ever so relieved that I'll never have to look at those hideous faces from Cloud Atlas again; Tom Hanks' yellow buck teeth and various facial hairdonts will haunt me forever even without clip reels!

Among these potential nominees I think Les Misérables and Lincoln are obviously worthy choices for films with extensive »
