Paul Thomas Anderson Says He Hopes To Shoot 'Inherent Vice' Next Year, Drawing Inspiration From 'The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers'

27 December 2012 9:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Paul Thomas Anderson might be one of the most lauded and devoutly-followed filmmakers working today, but he's hardly been Mr. Prolific of late; three films in the last decade in "Punch Drunk Love," "There Will Be Blood," and this year's "The Master," each one made five years apart. But with the latter long since in theaters (some calling it the best movie of 2012, others expressing disappointment), Anderson's looking to the future, and suggesting that we might have a shorter wait for his next movie. In an expansive interview with the New York Times about the making of "The Master," Anderson talks about the future, confirming that his next film, as long expected, will be an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's "Inherent Vice," with the paper revealing that the writer-director has "a large stack of pages" from the script, and that he plans to get before cameras next year. We've known that his. »

Paul Thomas Anderson Hopes to Shoot Inherent Vice in 2013; Says the Adaptation Is More “Secretarial” Than There Will Be Blood

27 December 2012 9:35 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though director Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama The Master was certainly one of the most polarizing films of 2012, it looks as if he’s tackling some more straightforward subject matter for his next feature.  Anderson has been eyeing an adaptation of the Thomas Pychon novel Inherent Vice for a few years now, and he worked on nabbing financing for the pic early last year, at the same time that he got The Master financed.  Last we heard, Anderson was working on the screenplay with Robert Downey Jr. keen on tackling the starring role, and now post-Master Anderson has talked a bit more about the project, revealing that he hopes to start shooting next year. Hit the jump to see what Anderson had to say. For those unfamiliar with the source material, Inherent Vice takes place in 1969 Los Angeles and centers on a private detective who is helping a former lover »

Paul Thomas Anderson updates on his adaptation of the "stoner private-eye saga" Inherent Vice

27 December 2012 6:02 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Director Paul Thomas Anderson is a somewhat elusive director when it comes to his source material.  He's been hard to nail down in terms of what he'll do next or where he'll draw the material from, which is probably more his doing than anything else.  His films have multiple meanings and are layered in such a way that it takes multiple viewings to soak it all in, much like his latest work, The Master.  Speaking to the NY Times, Anderson has revealed that his next »

The Best Movie Trailers of 2012

25 December 2012 8:12 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

An effective trailer can do wonders for a film. For every movie that is guaranteed to have an audience, there are many more that need to build their own buzz, and there’s no faster way to do that than with a good trailer. A well made trailer can turn a monster movie from a first-time director starring a bunch of then-unknowns into the most-buzzed about movie for weeks, while a poor trailer can doom a movie right from the start. Every year sees some trailers that, independent of the film they’re promoting, capture one’s attention, and make people keep returning to them. Here are the trailers of 2012 that were able to do that best.

 

30) The Avengers

The sheer impossibility of conceiving of a large screen movie about a team of Marvel superheroes even 15 years ago cannot be understated. While the technology needed to adequately show their true might may have been present, »

Best Performances, Directing, and Other Miscellany of 2012

25 December 2012 9:10 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In past years for my "Best of" list, I've been able to provide fun categories like "Best Kill" and "Best Quotes", but sadly, that won't be happening this year.  I keep notes throughout the year, but in July, my hard drive crashed, and because I am a foolish person, I didn't back up the notes to a separate drive.  However, I do have enough information to do the traditional categories as well as Breakthrough Performance, "A Very Good Year", Best Villain, Best Surprises, Biggest Disappointments, and a new category, "Best Movie You Probably Missed This Year."  One final note: unlike previous years, the film had to come out in 2012; festival-only flicks don't count, so that's why there's no love for The Place Beyond the Pines on this year's list. Hit the jump to check out my miscellaneous “Best of 2012″ picks.  Be sure to keep checking back this week as we'll »

'The Master' leads Online Film Critics' Society nominations

24 December 2012 8:21 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I had thought we were done with critics' awards until the holidays subside, but the Online Film Critics Society decided to make us a Christmas present of their nominations -- or perhaps that should be a gift for "The Master," which underlined its status as a critical darling with a field-leading eight nominations. "Argo" and "Zero Dark Thirty" were a distant second with five each. It's a strong list, the most distinctive feature of which is a Best Picture nod for "Holy Motors," the first such citation I can recall this season. Also relatively unique: a double shot of genre fare in the Best Original »

Ricky D’s 50 Favourite Films of 2012 (Part Two)

22 December 2012 4:26 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

 

25: The Dark Knight Rises

Directed by Christopher Nolan

Screenplay by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan

2012, USA

The Dark Knight Rises feels as if it was made up of two equal halves, with the most critical moment of the film breaking the movie in half, almost literally. While the second half may have been a let down, the first half is incredibly ambitious to say the least. The opening sequence, a gravity-defying skyjacking, is a tour de force – wildly choreographed, vivid, visceral, and chock full of suspense. That aerial extraction alone is worth the price of admission. Production-wise, effects-wise, Nolan’s movie (with sequences shot with Imax cameras) is staggering. There was an opportunity here for Nolan to stretch the boundaries of what is possible in the genre, alas, the final act becomes a little too conventional – complete with a doomsday device and a ticking-clock countdown. But for every quibble, »

Will the Academy snub Joaquin Phoenix?

22 December 2012 8:43 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

When the nominees for the Academy Award for Best Actor are announced next month, it will mark the end to a hard fought battle, and this is a fact, one of the boldest and most creative performances of the last twenty years could very well be on the outside looking in. The snub of Joaquin Phoenix by the Screen Actors Guild for his galvanizing performance in The Master was truly startling because one would hope actors would recognize the risk he took in that piece of acting, the boldness of the execution of what he attempted, and the genius in making it work. Phoenix walked a fine line between great acting and great overacting, never stepping into the latter, always managing to remain solid. His comments about the Oscars a short while ago have not endeared him to those who do the nominating, and I wonder if more than a »

Thn’s 2012 Rundown – September & October

22 December 2012 3:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As summer fades into autumn you’d be forgiven for thinking standards could slip. Worry not, whilst the budgets get smaller and explosions less frequent the quality doesn’t drop one bit.

September

Anna Karenina, based on Leo Tolstoy’s classic serial novel, starring Keira Knightley, Jude Law, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson kicked off the month with class and distinction. Our own Jazmine described it as “… fabulous. Charming, engaging, entertaining, it comfortably fits its 2 hours 10 minutes running time. Every scene is key and packed to the brim with talent. Superb!” 

Cinema audiences got another glimpse at Man Of Steel hero Henry Cavill in Cold Light Of Day. From director Mabrouk El Mechri (Jcvd), with Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver on board, the film sees Cavill on the trace of a briefcase which is needed to save his family. Sound exciting? Well, our man Joe didn’t think so saying “The Cold Light Of Day »

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s the thing that tucks you in at night, ensures that not a creature is stirring and keeps an eye out for that chubby guy with the red suit. It’s on duty all year ’round though, so late nights get a little boring. Luckily there’s movie news to talk about. Anchor Date – Great news this week from the Channel 4 News Team. Ron Burgundy and his friends have set a date for their return. The long anticipated Anchorman 2 will hit theaters on December 20, 2013. Luckily, the world did not end today as planned. Suck it, Mayans. Now we get more of Ron, Brick, Champ, Brian Fantana and all the wonderful supporting characters that populate the Sex Panther-scented world of San Diego.
