From the Gotham Awards floor: Overheard and witnessed at the Oscar season kickoff

2 December 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Aimlessly wandering around Cipriani Wall Street, the lavish home of New York City’s Gotham Awards, I wondered if anyone knew the awards season was in full swing. That morning, a critics group handed out the first batch of accolades. Present company would soon receive statues swaying the race towards buzzed about thespian thoroughbreds. It was "on."  Yet, this crowd didn’t have that awareness. This was way too chill. I was the only one wondering if "Under the Skin" could upset "Birdman," weighing options in anticipation of the question mark-filled Breakthrough Actor category. Somehow, a run-in with "Boyhood" star Ellar Coltrane ended with us wondering out loud, "What does it all mean?" in the existential sense.  So this is why everyone was downing bellinis. The Gotham Awards owns its quiet-before-the-storm identity. The show isn’t the Golden Globes drunken circus, nor is it top tier enough to warrant an intense competitive edge. »

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »

From Meryl Streep to Expendables Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford, Big Stars in Small Roles Boost Summer Blockbusters

12 August 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The trailers for “The Giver,” a dystopian adventure based on the 1993 Newbery Medal-winning novel by Lois Lowry that opens this weekend, features a character who was a mere footnote in this influential young-adult source for such futuristic fables as “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent." Not only that, she's Hollywood royalty hiding under a veil of gray hair: Meryl Streep. As the understated though stern Chief Elder, whose gender has been switched for big-screen purposes, she sums up the guiding principle behind “The Giver"’s politely oppressive totalitarian society: "When people have the freedom to choose, they choose wrong."  Why would the three-time Oscar winner, whose summer releases such as “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Julie & Julia” and “Hope Springs” are usually aimed more at adults, want to dabble in such doings? “She said yes right away,” says Nikki Silver, a producer of "The Giver" along with another Oscar-winner, Jeff »

The Weinstein Company To Release One Chance On Yahoo Screen Before It Hits Theaters

21 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On the night of June 9th 2007, a new television reality show called ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ went on air in the UK. On its first ever broadcast, a shy, unassuming man opened his mouth to sing the famous operatic aria ‘Nessun Dorma’, delivering a beautiful, stirring rendition that would change his life from that moment forward.

Swept up in the contagious emotion of Giacomo Puccini’s stunning aria, and the unlikely figure with crooked teeth and diluted confidence who had crooned it for them, the show’s three judges – Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan – stared in awe at what they had just witnessed, while the audience of 2,000 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff erupted in a standing ovation.

Britain was instantly won over by Paul Potts, who was then working as a manager at the Port Talbot branch of The Carphone Warehouse, and followed him on his »

The Academy Invites 271 New Members for 2014

26 June 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Academy has announced the new class of invited members for 2014 and, as is typical, many of which are among last year's nominees, which includes Barkhad Abdi, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, Mads Mikkelsen, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb in the Actors branch not to mention curious additions such as Josh Hutcherson, Rob Riggle and Jason Statham, but, okay. The Directors branch adds Jay and Mark Duplass along with Jean-Marc Vallee, Denis Villeneuve and Thomas Vinterberg. I didn't do an immediate tally of male to female additions or other demographics, but at first glance it seems to be a wide spread batch of new additions on all fronts. The Academy is also clearly attempting to aggressively bump up the demographics as this is the second year in a row where they have added a large number of new members, well over the average of 133 new members from 2004 to 2012.

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong'o among 271 Academy invitees

26 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o of 12 Years a Slave were two of the 271 artists and industry leaders invited to become members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which determines nominations and winners at the annual Oscars. The entire list of Academy membership—which numbers about 6,000—isn’t public information so the annual invitation list is often the best indication of the artists involved in the prestigious awards process. It’s worth noting that invitations need to be accepted in order for artists to become members; some artists, like two-time Best Actor winner Sean Penn, have declined membership over the years. »

Josh Hutcherson, Lupita Nyong'o, Pharrell and 268 others invited to join the Academy

26 June 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Pop quiz: What do Chris Rock, Claire Denis, Eddie Vedder and Josh Hutcherson all have in common? Answer: They could all be Oscar voters very soon. The annual Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences invitation list always makes for interesting reading, shedding light on just how large and far-reaching the group's membership is -- or could be, depending on who accepts their invitations. This year, 271 individuals have been asked to join AMPAS, meaning every one of them could contribute to next year's Academy Awards balloting -- and it's as diverse a list as they've ever assembled. Think the Academy consists entirely of fusty retired white dudes? Not if recent Best Original Song nominee Pharrell Williams takes them up on their offer. Think it's all just a Hollywood insiders' game? Not if French arthouse titans Chantal Akerman and Olivier Assayas join the party. It's a list that subverts expectation at every turn. »

There are terrific filmmakers around the world at the top of their game and we want to recognize them and bring them into the Academy. »

Steve Carell Is Crazy Intense in This New 'Foxcatcher' Clip

16 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Although Steve Carell is more known for her doofy characters like Brick Tamland in "Anchorman," he's given some serious (and seriously underseen) performances in movies like "The Way Way Back," "Hope Springs," and "Dan in Real Life." Now it looks like he's getting seriously scary in the upcoming drama "Foxcatcher," which is premiering at Cannes.

Carell stars as John du Pont, an heir to the du Pont family fortune who was convicted of murdering Dave Schultz, a wrestler du Pont was ostensibly training for the '96 Olympics. Mark Ruffalo plays Dave Schultz, and Channing Tatum co-stars as his brother Mark. It's a strange story about obsession and mental illness, and although the movie's release date got pushed back a year, we're more enthusiastic than ever to see this intense drama.

It seems like people are always surprised when Carell is cast in something that's not a comedy, but this trailer »

'Hundred-Foot Journey' trailer promises food porn and culture clashes galore

14 May 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's almost that time of year: August, when something aims for the heartstrings at the end of a blockbuster summer and just before the prestige movie season of the fall. We've seen films like "Eat, Pray, Love," "The Help," "Hope Springs" and "Lee Daniels' The Butler" succeed in that frame in recent years, and this year, it will be "The Hundred-Foot Journey" looking to cash in. Whether it can translate that potential success into an awards trajectory a la "The Help" (the only one of those three to find Oscar traction) is anyone's guess. The film stars Helen Mirren as a French restaurant proprietress whose world is turned upside down when a displaced Indian family sets up shop across the street from her Michelin star experience. As you can see in the trailer at the top of this post, a culture clash ensues and all the tropes of such a »

Watch: Michael Douglas Propositions Diane Keaton in Trailer for Rob Reiner's 'And So It Goes'

12 May 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Clarius Entertainment and Castle Rock Entertainment have released a new trailer for Rob Reiner's upcoming romantic comedy "And So It Goes," co-starring Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. Oren Little, played by Douglas, is a realtor who is just as selfish as he is successful. When Oren's estranged son shows up with a granddaughter he never knew he had and leaves her in his care, Oren learns to open up - to love and be loved. Keaton co-stars as Oren's next-door neighbor and eventual love interest, Leah. Douglas and Keaton appear to give vibrant performances in their respective roles, which isn't so much a subversion of senior stereotypes as it is a trend in more recent studio projects that star acting veterans. Similar titles include "Last Vegas," "Hope Springs," and Reiner's "The Bucket List."  "And So It Goes" opens nationwide on July 11th. Watch the full trailer below: »
