New Season Of Wigs With Julia Stiles Leaves YouTube, Heads To Hulu

19 March 2014 7:10 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Wigs was one of the original recipients of a very large check from YouTube back in 2011 when the video sharing site first launched its Original Channels Initiative. Since then, the collection of dramatic, online video stories created by Jon Avnet (Black Swan, Fried Green Tomatoes, Risky Business), Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment, Big Love), and Jake Avnet has gone on to encompass “15 high-end original series, 7 short films and 10 documentaries” all featuring well-known females in leading roles. The production shop has also received funding from Fox. Meanwhile, YouTube has removed all references to its Original Channels Initiative and isn’t funding new programming the same way it once was. With an influx of cash from a major broadcast network and performances from traditional talent like Julia Stiles, Troian Bellisario, Jennifer Beals, Jennifer Garner, Virginia Madsen, Dakota Fanning, and more, it’s not surprising that Wigs is ditching YouTube for Hulu. »

Aaron Taylor-Johnson on Bryan Cranston and the 'intimate' nature of 'Godzilla'

19 March 2014 10:04 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Vancouver - "Intimate" usually isn't the first word that comes to mind when thinking about a big budget summer tentpole featuring a giant monster smashing buildings and breathing fire on tanks. However, that's the exact word that star Aaron Taylor-Johnson used to describe Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.' upcoming "Godzilla." When a group of fellow journalists and I visited the set of the film, we sat and chatted with stars Bryan Cranston and Taylor-Johnson, but didn't get to meet the big guy himself, who was added into the film later via the wonders of computer effects.  While Taylor-Johnson will soon be best-known for blockbusters like "Godzilla" and "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," he balances the big studio films with smaller fare like the Oscar-nominated "Albert Nobbs" and the John Lennon drama "Nowhere Boy." He claimed that "Godzilla" doesn't feel much bigger than the small indies in which he's appeared. »

Oscar Picks: Variety Critics on Who Should Win Best Actor/Actress

26 February 2014 6:19 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Best Actress

Justin Chang: Scott, I know it will come as little surprise to you that when Peter Debruge and I sat down to discuss this year’s Oscar nominees for best supporting actor and supporting actress, we spent almost as much time talking about the performances that should have been nominated as we did talking about the ones that actually were. This is hardly a new ax for any critic to grind, but it bears repeating: Those who vote on the Academy Awards are largely in the business of making movies — not seeing them, thinking about them and writing about them week in and week out. No wonder this organization’s choices often strike us as so pedestrian and provincial, less engaged by the boundary-expanding possibilities of cinema than beholden to the power of hometown hype.

Ewan McGregor Will Spend Last Days In The Desert With Tye Sheridan

5 February 2014 4:19 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rodrigo García has long been a well-respected name in the television industry, helming pilots for such successful shows like CarnivàleBig Love and Six Degrees. In recent years, however, he’s also been gaining more credibility as a Hollywood director, thanks to the success of his films Mother and Child and Albert Nobbs, the latter of which Glenn Close and Janet McTeer both earned Oscar nominations for.

His next project certainly sounds like an intriguing challenge: an indie drama called Last Days in the Desert, about a holy man and a demon journeying through the desert together. Continuing the streak of good luck in casting that began with Albert Nobbs, García has snagged A-lister Ewan McGregor to lead the film.

McGregor will star as both the holy man and the demon, the pair of whom face questions about their fate after encountering a family clinging to life in the brutal heat of the desert. »

Ewan McGregor Spends The Last Days In The Desert

5 February 2014 10:38 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Given his experience roaring around sandy climes with his mate for those Long Way bike-umentaries, Ewan McGregor seems like the sort of person to have around if you’re spending time in an arid wasteland.

5 February 2014 9:43 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Despite appearing in the lackluster hopeful blockbuster Jack the Giant Slayer, the fantastic Ewan McGregor has had quite a great run on the big screen. Perfect Sense, The Impossible, Beginners and last year's August: Osage County have seen some great performances from the actor. Soon he'll be seen alongside Johnny Depp in Mortdecai and the once troubled western Jane Got a Gun, and now he's lined up another promising project with Last Days in the Desert, a new project from Albert Nobbs director Rodrigo Garcia that will team McGregor up with David Gordon Green's Joe star Tye Sheridan. Read on! Deadline says the story will see McGregor playing a holy man and a demon who must confront his own fate after an encounter with a family struggling to survive in the harsh desert environment. Sheridan is likely part of the family along with Ciarán Hinds and Ayelet Zurer. Garcia »
