Bill Hader Eyeing Disney’s Female Santa Claus Film With Anna Kendrick (Exclusive)

20 July 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bill Hader is in talks to co-star with Anna Kendrick in Disney’s upcoming female Santa Claus film “Nicole,” sources tell Variety.

Miss Congeniality” scribe Marc Lawrence is directing and penning the script.

The story revolves around Santa’s daughter, presumably the titular Nicole, who is forced to take over the family business when her father retires and brother ends up getting cold feet prior to his first big Christmas Eve flight. Hader will play said brother.


‘Aladdin’: Disney Casts Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott

Susanne Todd is producing while Louie Provost is overseeing for Disney. Production is expected to start sometime this fall.

While this film is not related to the Tim Allen “Santa Clause” triology, Disney seems to be in the Kris Kringle business as they are also developing another holiday-themed project with Kevin Hart, “Dashing Through the Snow.”

Hader cut his teeth on the “Saturday Night Live” scene for ten years »

Indie Film Invades the Emmys: Jean Marc-Vallée, Reed Morano and More Cinematic Voices Dominate

13 July 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

They say television is the new film, and that’s certainly true when you look at how many actors, directors, writers, cinematographers and more from the film world are counted among this year’s Emmy nominees. A majority of the biggest contenders, from “The Handmaid’s Tale” to “The Night Of,” “Big Little Lies” and “The Crown,” brought some of the best film talent to the small screen over the last year, and their work resulted in major recognition from the TV Academy.

All of these nominations for film stars and behind-the-scenes talent shouldn’t come as a surprise in the era of Peak TV, but they confirm that the small screen is offering certain opportunities that Hollywood just isn’t these days.

New to Streaming: ‘The Bad Batch,’ ‘Summer Hours,’ ‘Kong: Skull Island,’ ‘Paterson,’ and More

23 June 2017 5:31 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

The Bad Batch (Ana Lily Amirpour)

Ana Lily Amirpour’s second feature shoots for Harmony Korine meets Mad Max and would have nearly almost hit the mark were it not for the gratingly aloof attitude and the swaths of directorial license being taken. The Bad Batch — an ambitious, expansive dystopian sci-fi western which features partying, drugs, and cannibals — might come as music to the ears of diehard fans of films like Spring Breakers and Gummo (a kid doesn’t quite eat spaghetti in a bathtub, but a kid does eat spaghetti after being in a bathtub). However, beneath its dazzlingly hip surface the script and characters leave much to be desired. It’s like taking a trip to Burning Man: a pseudo-spiritual, uniquely punky experience perhaps, but one that’s full of annoying rich kids and ultimately emotionally shallow. – Rory O. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon, iTunes

Kong: Skull Island (Jordan Vogt-Roberts)

Though it may not feel fully inspired so much as competently pre-visualized, Kong: Skull Island fits snugly into the growing canon of reboots that exist within ever-expanding movie universes. That’s a first sentence to a positive review that perhaps reads a bit more cynically than intended. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and written by a bunch of dudes (Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly with a story credited to John Gatins), this umpteenth version of the King Kong story pulls from every available pop-culture source in building a fun creature feature. Much of the credit goes to the breathtaking effects and brisk pace, which distract from some lofty line readings and silly plot devices. – Dan M. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon, iTunes, Google

Le Trou (Jacques Becker)

One of the greatest prison escape dramas of all-time, Jacques Becker’s recently-restored Le Trou is a masterclass in tension. By putting us both in the physical and psychological headspace of our protagonists, it’s an enveloping experience as we see a number of close calls, leading up to one of the most unforgettable endings in cinema. – Jordan r.

Where to Stream: Mubi (free 30-day trial)

Moana (John Musker and Ron Clements)

It’s time for another Disney Princess movie, and you know how it goes. Disney knows too, and wants you to know that it knows. When the title character of Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) denies that she’s a princess, claiming that she’s merely the daughter of her island’s chief and the next chieftain, her adventuring partner Maui (Dwayne Johnson) asserts, “Same difference,” and that, “You wear a dress and have an animal sidekick. You’re a princess.” But Disney is doing its best to make the culture rethink cinematic fantasy princesses, countering the stereotypes of helpless femininity (which the studio largely put in place) with a new roster of highly capable action heroines. And Moana is, as they call it, a good role model. And the movie around her is fine. – Dan S. (full review)

Where to Stream: Netflix

Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press (Brian Knappenberger)

Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press uses a salacious story and website as the launching pad to discuss where we currently are, so much so that I imagine director Brian Knappenberger — who uses footage from President Trump’s infamous press conference only a few days before the film’s Sundance premiere — may wish to stay on the story. Gawker, a site spun out of Gizmodo, was founded to share the types of stories mainstream news outlets would often shy away from, including celebrity sex tapes, outings, drug use, and allegations that have swirled but not picked up traction. They’ve featured Rob Ford smoking crack, Bill Cosby’s multiple accusers, Hillary Clinton’s emails, Tom Cruise’s prominent role in Scientology, and the one that brought them down: the infamous Hulk Hogan sex tape recorded for private use by Hogan pal and infamous Tampa shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, best known nationally for his stint on Howard Stern’s satellite channel. Bubba’s antics will no doubt some day be the subject of a documentary of their own, from his role in both the Hogan affair to his odd appearance in the David Petraeus saga. – John F. (full review)

Where to Stream: Netflix

Paterson (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch proved he was back in a major way with Only Lovers Left Alive a few years ago, and the streak continues with Paterson, a calm, introspective drama with such positive views on marriage and creativity that I was left floored. In following the cyclical life of Adam Driver‘s Paterson, a bus driver in Paterson, New Jersey, who also has dreams of being a poet, Jarmusch superbly shows that one’s own life experience — however seemingly insubstantial — is the only requirement to produce something beautiful. Moreso than any other film in 2016, this is the kind of world I want to live in. – Jordan R.

Where to Stream: Amazon Prime

Star Trek Beyond (Justin Lin)

After the pleasant fluff of its kick-off installment and the frog march of unpleasantness that was Into Darkness, the rebooted Star Trek film series finally hits a fun median between big-budget bombast and classic Trek bigheartedness with Star Trek Beyond. Does the franchise’s full descent into action, with only the barest lip service paid to big ideas, cause Gene Roddenberry’s ashes to spin in their space capsule? Probably, but in the barren desert of summer 2016 blockbusters, this is a lovely oasis. – Dan S. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon Prime

Summer Hours (Olivier Assayas)

Perhaps a point of contention on New York Times’ top 25 films of the 21st century list, Olivier AssayasSummer Hours is a commendable top 10 pick. Led by Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling, Jérémie Renier, and Kyle Eastwood, this drama follows a family reuniting following the death of their mother. Like the best of Assayas’ films, it’s an impeccably-crafted, subtly-moving experience, one that wades in the ideas of the value of what we hold on to and a graceful reflection on the passage of time. – Jordan R.

Where to Stream: FilmStruck

Wilson (Craig Johnson)

The world of Daniel Clowes is one without manners, glamour, and tact, but it is also one of uncomfortable truth, as scathing as it might be. One may have never verbally conveyed the discourteous musings of his characters to the extent to which it is their everyday vernacular, but we’ve all had similar thoughts when life isn’t going our way. The latest adaptation of his work comes with Wilson, directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins), featuring a role Woody Harrelson is clearly having the time of his life with. Despite his commitment to a lack of civility, there’s a darker film lying in the cynical heart of Wilson, one that gets squandered by its mawkish aesthetic and lack of interest in exploring these characters beyond their crudeness. – Jordan R. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon, iTunes, Google

The Zookeeper’s Wife (Niki Caro)

The Zookeeper’s Wife begins with those five famous words that hold the power to either become a film’s dependency (and therefore downfall) or its empowering catalyst, laying the foundation to convey a poignant tale: “Based on a true story.” Fortunately, The Zookeeper’s Wife sticks with the latter, and the true tale being told is one for the ages. Niki Caro‘s drama follows a couple who hide Jews in their zoo and use it as a point of passage and escape during the Nazi takeover of Warsaw. The narrative is a simple one, allowing The Zookeeper’s Wife to shine in its performances, imagery, and storytelling, which it pristinely accomplishes. – Chelsey G. (full review)

Wilson review – Woody Harrelson’s abrasive misfit fails to connect

11 June 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Daniel Clowes’s graphic novel does not translate well to the big screen, despite the star’s high-energy performance

The lovechild of director Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins) and screenwriter and comic book artist Daniel Clowes (Ghost World) was always going to be an abrasive, maladroit loner with the social subtlety of a headbutt. And in this, the misanthropic, gleefully luddite Wilson (Woody Harrelson) doesn’t disappoint. Wilson delights in peeling people away from their electronic devices and engaging them in conversations which invariably feel more like an assault than an exchange of ideas. When he reconnects with his troubled ex-wife (Laura Dern), Wilson learns he has a teenage daughter who was adopted and, for a while at least, he feels part of a dysfunctional family unit. A structure that perhaps worked better in its original graphic novel form feels a little episodic as a movie. Despite the mordant humour »

Wilson Review

9 June 2017 8:05 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Woody Harrelson is perhaps one of Hollywood’s most underrated actors of the past few decades – with countless fantastic performances across his career, you’d think the actor would have become one of the biggest in the world such is his immeasurable talents. But the former Cheers star has always been on the periphery which still beggars belief if you look through his catalogue of roles – whether it’s in True Detective, Rampart, White Men Can’t Jump or Natural Born Killers, Harrelson truly is one of the greats. And his new film, the acerbic comedy Wilson, only proves it further.

Harrelson stars as the titular anti-hero, a middle-aged loner who has become increasingly disillusioned with the modern society that has arisen around him – people not talking to people, more interested in their computer screens, social media and anything else that stops them having to have real conversations. »

Sundance London 2017 Review – Wilson (2017)

5 June 2017 10:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Wilson, 2017

Directed by Craig Johnson

Starring Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Judy Greer and Isabella Amara


A lonely and socially-difficult middle-aged man battles his father’s sudden death by teaming up with his ex-wife to hunt down and reunite with the daughter they put up for adoption several decades earlier.

The very concept of Wilson on paper: the director of The Skeleton Twins, Craig Johnson, partnering up with Daniel Clowes, the mastermind behind Ghost World, to make yet another off-beat indie dramedy, is pretty much a Sundance wet-dream waiting to happen. And while the final result isn’t quite the esteemed cult classic existing fans of the pair may well be hoping for, what it is is an incredibly solid, well-acted and surprisingly heartfelt look at both honesty and loneliness. A more hard-talking, and slightly more meandering take on Clowes’ usual material, but with the necessary warmth and depth that Johnson made his name mastering. »

New ‘Band Aid’ Trailer Brings Together Love & Rock ‘n Roll

12 May 2017 8:56 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The “dramedy” has become such a staple in independent cinema (and television) that it deserves its own category. It’s the type of film that isn’t consistently laugh out loud funny but the leads are typically naturally comical and played by well known, on the curve of their big, movie “break” sitcom stars. In that vein of film we get anything from the dreadful “The Hollars,” the Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig showcase “The Skeleton Twins” to the film that nearly defines this lo-fi, sad guy comedy genre, “Garden State.

Dear Hollywood: 9 Top Women Cinematographers Who Are Ready to Direct

10 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Here’s how studios say they see it: Sure, we really want to hire women directors. But there’s almost no studio movie that isn’t big budget, and we can’t find women who have the experience necessary to handle the really big movies. (Never mind Colin Trevorrow. Or Marc Webb. Or Gareth Edwards. Or Jon Watts.)

Of course, that logic is a vicious cycle at best, but here’s a chance to break it. Director Reed Morano’s dazzling execution of the first three episodes of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” suggests another excellent source for future women directors: top cinematographers.

Woody Harrelson is the embarrassing eccentric Dad we all dread in new red band trailer for Wilson

With the Sundance London line-up announcement, this morning which sees Woody Harrelson’s Wilson making its debut at the festival we get to take a peek at the first official hilarious red band trailer and poster.

Harrelson, who is currently in London this week promoting Lost in London and will be seen in the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, plays a middle-aged man, estranged from his wife and has absolutely no concept of other people’s personal space in the trailer. On finding out he has a daughter who was put up for adoption entices her to play stalker, but not before she gives him a good handbag hiding, in order to get to know and go totally Dad crazy when he sees her being bullied.

Wilson Director Craig Johnson On Making Daniel Clowes’ Offbeat Film With Woody Harrelson

28 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Daniel ClowesWilson is now playing in theaters across the country and hopefully, those who’ve had a chance to see it still have some questions about how the filmmakers and cast captured the tone of Clowes’ graphic novel so well. (It didn’t hurt that Clowes adapted it into a movie himself.)

It is director Craig Johnson’s third film, following 2009’s True Adolescents and 2014’s The Skeleton Twins, starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, which won a screenplay at Sundance that year.

In the movie, Woody Harrelson plays the title character, a cantankerous and unfiltered loner who tries hard to be social but ends up putting those he interacts with off. When he tries to reconnect with his ex-wife Pippy (Laura Dern), he finds out that he had a baby daughter she gave up for adoption. The two of them go look for their now teen daughter Claire »

‘Wilson’ Flops for Fox Searchlight as ‘T2 Trainspotting’ Holds Strong

26 March 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

This weekend, strong holdover “T2 Trainspotting” outperformed Fox Searchlight disappointment “Wilson” at the specialty box office. Jazz documentary “I Called Him Morgan” is the bright spot among new specialty entries — at just one theater. This year, there are so many well-reviewed wide releases enjoying huge success with smart adults that the indies need a strong critical response to compete for moviegoers.

$330,000 in 310 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $1,065

Wilson” did not make a splash at Sundance, and even a top-flight specialized distributor like Fox Searchlight can’t transform a film with mediocre reviews into a success. It’s got a great pedigree — directed by Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”), Daniel Clowes adapted it from his own graphic novel and its includes Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern. Searchlight went with a non-platform wider initial release of 330 theaters. For all that, however, the results »

Review: "Wilson"

26 March 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Spencer Coile

Daniel Clowes struck gold in 2001 when he wrote the screenpay for Ghost World, an adaptation of his graphic novel of the same name. Telling the story of self-identified outcast Enid (Thora Birch), his first screenplay toyed with themes pertaining to isolation, the dissolution of friendships, and lots and lots of teen angst. It was relatable and altogether melancholic, but importantly-- it all worked. Drawing from his own work (no pun intended), Clowes pulled together some all-too-familiar film tropes, and managed to subvert them in thoughtful and oftentimes amusing ways. After a return to the screen with another adaptation of his own work, Art School Confidential in 2006, Clowes layed low, working primarily on writing/drawing and short films. He's back with Wilson, now in theaters, pairing with The Skeleton Twins director Craig Johnson, for another foray into the hilariously damaged human spirit »

Wilson – Review

23 March 2017 9:24 PM, PDT | | See recent news »


This week sees another comic book adaptation arrive at movie theatres, while the Lego Batman and Logan are still pulling audiences in at the multiplex. Ah, but this film is not another superhero slugfest (we’ll have three more of those from Marvel Studios, and two from Warner/DC by the year’s end). No this comes from the “upper classes” of illustrated narratives, those “serious and somber” graphic novels (kind of a “highfalutin'” moniker). Several prestige flicks have been based on such books, like The History Of Violence and The Road To Perdition (both earned Oscar noms). The “graphic artist” (hey, I’ll bet he’d prefer cartoonist) behind this new film is no stranger to cinema. Matter of fact, this is his third feature-length movie adaptation. The first was my personal favorite flick of 2001, the quirky Ghost World (no ectoplasmic apparitions, but a teenage Scarlett Johansson). Five years »

‘Wilson’ Review: Woody Harrelson Lightens Up a Dark Daniel Clowes Character

23 March 2017 4:48 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Loneliness looms over “Wilson,” adapted from the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes (“Ghost World”) by Clowes and director Craig Johnson (“The Skeleton Twins”). In an early scene, it literally hangs over Wilson’s (Woody Harrelson) head as he walks past a movie theater showing Vittorio De Sica’s 1952 classic, “Umberto D.” In that sorrowful, Italian neo-realist masterpiece, the elderly Umberto is the embodiment of loneliness, and suffers a near thorough destitution, his only salve the companionship of a pet dog. Wilson, Umberto’s toxic heir, has a dog, too, but his loneliness is self-imposed: Wilson is an obnoxious jerk. Not that you’d know. »

Daniel Clowes On Adapting His Graphic Novel: Wilson - Interview

23 March 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

For nearly thirty years, Daniel Clowes has been at the forefront of San Francisco’s second wave of underground cartoonists, first making waves with his anthology comic, Eightball, which ran for fifteen years. One of the many serialized comic stories in that comic was Ghost World, which was turned into a popular indie movie in 2001, directed by Terry Zwigoff and starring a very, very young Scarlett Johansson.

Five years later, Zwigoff and Clowes reteamed for the comedy Art School Confidential, also based on an Eightball story, and around the same time, Clowes shifted away from Eightball to writing and drawing stand-alone graphic novels.

One of those graphic novels was 2010’s Wilson, which Clowes has now adapted into a movie starring Woody Harrelson as its cantankerous title character, who goes on a quest to reconnect with his ex-wife Pippy (Laura Dern), and find their now-teen daughter Claire (Isabella Amara). It’s »

'Wilson' Review: Woody Harrelson Nearly Saves Sentimental-Crank Cringe-Comedy

22 March 2017 6:11 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Woody Harrelson is the life of this party, based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, the indie-comics legend whose work has inspired one film landmark in 2001's Ghost World (forget Art School Confidential). Wilson is not in that movie's league by a long shot, though you couldn't imagine a better interpreter of Clowes' world than Harrelson. That mischief in the actor's eyes keeps us intrigued by the film's title character, a neurotic grouch who rails against the Internet and other plagues of the modern age. Wilson also hates people – his main enjoyment, »
