John Hawkes gave one of his best performances this year

31 December 2012 10:49 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

This year, the battle for the “Best Actor” category is fierce. However, one of our favorites is John Hawkes. Is brilliant performance in “The Sessions” may garner him the coveted Oscar. Soon we will find out. John Hawkes has been working non-stop since his critically acclaimed performance as Teardrop in “Winter’s Bone,” the role which earned him an Independent Spirit Award win and an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Hawkes can be seen in Ben Lewin’s “The Sessions,” the story of a man confined to an iron lung who is determined – at age 38 – to lose his virginity. He also recently completed production on “Lincoln,” “Arcadia” and “The Playroom.” Hawkes’ additional film credits include “Higher Ground,” “Contagion,” “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” “Me and You and Everyone We Know,” “American Gangster,” “Miami Vice,” “Identity,” “The Perfect Storm,” “Small Town Saturday Night,” “Hardball,” “Wristcutters: A Love Story,” “The Amateurs, »

#30: Cloud Atlas

Directed by Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski

Written by Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski

Cloud Atlas is essentially a patchwork of narratives thematically linked with minor coincidences and recurring symbolism. With six stories spanning several centuries, Cloud Atlas explores how the actions and consequences of individual lives impact one another throughout the past, the present and the future. As a parable of how we are all connected, each protagonist in Cloud Atlas wrestles with some form of oppression, based on either gender, age, race, sexual orientation, genetics and so on. In 1850, a young American lawyer sailing on a ship through the South Pacific is slowly being poisoned by a doctor who wants the treasure of gold he is hiding. In the 1930s, an inspiring composer follows his dreams while recounting his journey via love letters to his gay lover. A journalistic potboiler set »

Christopher Nolan on Zack Snyder and Man of Steel

28 December 2012 10:53 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having successfully reinvented the Batman movie franchise - and redefined the entire superhero genre - with his Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan is now busy helping to bring another DC icon to the screen as producer on Zack Snyder's forthcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel. During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Nolan has spoken of his admiration for Snyder's work on the film, as well as touching upon the challenges facing the Watchmen director as he attempts to realise the world of the Man of Tomorrow and make us believe Henry Cavill (Immortals) can fly.

"Zack was the perfect man to take this on; he is unbelievably skilled at creating a coherent, cohesive world. Whether it’s a very stylized world, like 300, or something that’s more challenging, more varied, like he did with Watchmen. In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far »

Final trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty

18 December 2012 12:17 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having already topped countless 'Best of the Year' lists, big things are certainly expected of director Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty - which chronicles the decade long manhunt for Osama bin Laden, as well as the Seal team operation to kill the al-Qaeda terrorist leader - and if the newly-released third and final trailer is anything to go by, it looks as if the near-universal acclaim could be thoroughly well-deserved.

Zero Dark Thirty reunites Bigelow with The Hurt Locker screenwriter Mark Boal and the Academy Award-winning duo have certainly assembled an impressive ensemble cast, which is led by Jessica Chastain (The Help, The Tree of Life) as a CIA operative dedicated to tracking bin Laden down. Chastain is joined by Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Édgar Ramírez (Carlos), Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Nash Edgerton (I Am Number Four), Chris Pratt (Moneyball), Harold Perrineau (Lost), Jennifer Ehle (Contagion), Jason Clarke »

Every year, we as critics and as film buffs love to keep track of who and what dominated the year – which films hit and missed both critically and commercially, but also, who were the relevant talents both in front of and behind the camera? Like any year, there has been a collection of great actors who have worked their way to the forefront of popular contemporary cinema, and we’ve decided to single out the 10 who gave the most interesting, often surprising contributions to the world of cinema in 2012. Either through their consistent presence in our cinema-going or by fully realising their “rising star” status from years previous, these 10 actors all helped to enrich our film-watching experiences this year, and should be commended for it.

Here are 10 actors who ruled 2012.

New Side Effects Poster Hits

12 December 2012 1:30 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Open Road Films have released a brand new one-sheet for Side Effects, as has been uncovered by the Huffington Post.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh, Side Effects is written by frequent collaborator Scott Z. Burns (Contagion) and stars Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as a woman whose addiction to prescription drugs spirals out of control when her husband is released from prison.

The film, which also stars Channing Tatum (Magic Mike), Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago) and Jude Law (Anna Karenina), is noted as Soderbergh’s penultimate film before his supposed retirement after next year’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candelabra.

It’s undoubtedly a simple one-sheet, but one that successfully avoids clichés to subtly, yet effectively hint at what could be a darker, more scuzzy side to the pharmaceutical thriller that will likely unravel the more Mara’s character is overcome by drugs.

Side Effects is scheduled to hit »

Talk to Your Physician Before Taking the First Poster for 'Side Effects'

11 December 2012 8:55 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's pharmaceutical thriller Side Effects with Channing Tatum and Rooney Mara feels like an unofficial sequel or prequel to his viral thriller Contagion. There's intrigue, real-life based danger and that signature Soderbergh visual style from the past few years. Now a new poster gets a little clever by accompanying a couple of the stars concerned faces with credits that are made to resemble a prescription pad that a doctor might fill out. Even the second tagline, "A doctor's most important prescription is trust" fits the aesthetic (it also sounds like it could also be used for a Lifetime movie). Look! Here's the first poster for Steven Soderbergh's Side Effects from Huffington Post: Steven Soderbergh (Contagion, Magic Mike) directs Side Effects from a script by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Informant! and The Bourne Ultimatum) A woman (Rooney Mara) turns to prescription medication as »

Ask Nathaniel

7 December 2012 10:36 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I haven't done a Q&A in so long. And since I must hunker down and transcribe a bajillion interviews for y'all, I turn it over to you to inspire me with questions to answer inbetween the interviews so that we don't have to change the title of the blog to The Interview Experience. You know I strive for variety.

I apologize for my molasses pace this December. 2012 has long since turned into a personal nightmare cinematic experiment in recreating Steven Soderbergh's Contagion over and over again. This morning I had to turn down a breakfast with Ben Affleck so as to rescue him from my flu germs. Congratulate me on my altruism! 

Okay... time for your questions. Ready. Set. Go »
