Arthouse Audit: Woody Allen’s ‘Café Society’ Boosted by Kristen Stewart, But Not ‘Equals’

17 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Mid-summer brings the biggest limited opening of 2016, with a return to form by Woody Allen as new distributor Amazon Studios and partner Lionsgate pushed “Café Society” to numbers unseen since last December. It’s not at Allen’s top level, but a huge leap above his last two films as well as anything else so far this year.

For a totally different market, Dinesh D’Souza doc “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” had a limited opening in Middle America with strong front-loaded initial numbers. The political doc goes wider this Friday and could see a better eventual total —via an entirely different audience—than Allen’s film.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople” (The Orchard) from New Zealand leads the films in wider release as it continues to build word-of-mouth success. “Captain Fantastic” (Bleecker Street) boasted a decent second weekend expansion and could end up at a »

‘Café Society’ Review: Woody Allen’s Trip Back To 1930s Hollywood & New York A Real Charmer

15 July 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

It is time again for Woody Allen’s annual movie, a prospect that can be hit, miss or somewhere in between. It’s good to report that his latest, Café Society, while not Allen’s greatest, is certainly his best and most entertaining since 2011’s Oscar-winning Midnight In Paris. As I say in my video review above, it is a complete delight from start to finish, deliciously sophisticated and funny. Set in the glamorous life of Hollywood in the 1930s as well as the New York… »

Weekend Box Office Preview: Will ‘Ghostbusters’ and Woody Allen Rebound?

14 July 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After “The Secret Life of Pets” (Universal) stunned with its best-ever animated feature opening of $104 million last weekend, Sony’s “Ghostbusters” relaunch will challenge recent market trends.

“Pets” stood out among several under performing new releases after “Finding Dory” staked its claim at the summer’s biggest smash. Did it portend a late summer surge that could salvage an uneven season? If the long-awaited “Ghostbusters” remake takes in over $50 million — higher than anticipated — or even if it doesn’t take the top spot, the momentum would look sustained.

The all-female lead redo is among the most talked-about films of the year. That much of the talk— initial resistance to the casting concept, then reaction to the early trailer —has been negative has tempered expectations to below the(“22 Jump Street’s $57 million best opening benchmark for a live-action comedy over the past three summers. “Ghostbusters” might challenge “Neighbors” ($49 million) as the »

Cafe Society

13 July 2016 12:38 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

In a summer of VFX crowdpleasers, it's a kick to find Woody Allen out there working with flesh-and-blood actors who deal with emotions that aren't computer generated. Café Society isn't peak Allen, in the manner of such recent high points as Midnight in Paris (2011) and Blue Jasmine (2013), but the film — which could be helpfully subtitled Manhattan v Hollywood — feels lively, lived-in and fallibly human. 

The time is the 1930s, the decade of Allen's birth. At a Tinseltown pool party, lit with old-school glamour by camera legend Vittorio Storaro, power agent »

Woody Allen: A Career in 20 Hilarious, Brilliant Lines

13 July 2016 9:17 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

This Friday, Café Society, the latest release from writer/director/comic godhead Woody Allen, waltzes into theaters — the 47th feature Allen has directed over a career spanning 50 years. (Yes, we're counting New York Stories.) He's had box-office successes and outright bombs, Oscar-winning masterpieces and critically panned duds. But regardless of his movies' receptions (and the reoccurring rumors about his personal life), he's managed to pump out a film a year with impressive regularity. Some key elements have stayed the same — once a jazz clarinet slinks onto the soundtrack, audiences know exactly who they're dealing with. »

Film Review: CAFÉ Society

11 July 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Blink and you’ll miss it, the new Woody Allen film, Café Society, is packed with the genius’s usual mile a minute musings, teachings, and even action. It’s Allen’s examination, after thoughtful analyses of towns from Barcelona to Paris, of that juggernaut of the West—dreaded by all real New Yorkers like Woody himself. But perhaps because Allen’s distaste for La La Land is all too real, the film quickly extracts itself from Los Angeles, and one is left hard pressed to distinguish Café Society from any Allen film of yore. While Café Society shows flashes of brilliance in its analysis of the ennui of life, it never coalesces into a sum greater than its promising parts.

Café Society follows deer-in-headlights Bobby Dorfman, from the Bronx, as he wistfully tries to make it big in Hollywood in the 1930s. Played with stunning Allen-like obnoxiousness by the talented Jesse Eisenberg, »

Will Justin Bring Sexy Back to Woody Allen Movies?

8 July 2016 6:30 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Eric on strange casting news. Justin Timberlake will be joining the cast of Woody Allen’s upcoming 2017 film (as yet untitled). He'll join Kate Winslet, Jim Belushi, and Juno Temple. If that isn’t one of the weirdest casts for any movie, let alone a Woody movie, I don’t know what is.  It’s funny imagining those four people in the same room together, let alone the same film. 

Woody has had the most unpredictable decade, delivering some of his best (Blue Jasmine, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Midnight in Paris, Match Point) and some of his worst (Irrational Man and Magic in the Moonlight), and you just never know what you’re going to get »

Justin Timberlake Closes Deal To Join Untitled Woody Allen Movie

7 July 2016 9:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Prolific filmmaker Woody Allen has set the preliminary cast for his new, as-yet-untitled movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, musician-cum-actor Justin Timberlake (Trolls) has closed a deal to star, joining an ensemble that already boasts Kate Winslet, James Belushi and Juno Temple.

Much like Cafe Society before it, details relating to Allen’s next creative venture remain thin on the ground, though now that the principal stars are a lock, we expect the notoriously secretive director to reveal the movie’s setting and a potential plot in the coming weeks.

Whatever the case, today’s casting tidbit heralds the first collaboration between Timberlake and Woody Allen, and in recent years the former has broadened his creative spectrum beyond the music industry with convincing turns in both The Social Network and Inside Llewyn Davis. Could Allen’s latest continue that red-hot streak? Time will tell.

Michael Sheen Directing, Starring in Crime Thriller ‘Green River Killer’

24 June 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Sheen will make his feature directorial debut on and star in QC Entertainment’s crime thriller “Green River Killer.”

Sheen will portray the serial killer Gary Ridgway, who pleaded guilty in 2003 to 48 charges of first-degree murder of women in the state of Washington during the 1980s and 1990s. He was spared the death penalty in exchange for cooperation in locating the victims.

Sheen will direct from his own screenplay, which was named to the Black List in 2015 and is adapted from the Dark Horse Entertainment’s graphic novel “Green River Killer: A True Detective Story.” The book, which won the Eisner Award, was written by Jeff Jensen and based on his father, Tom Jensen, and artist Jonathan Case.

The film tells the story of the relationship between Tom Jensen, who spent two decades looking for the Green River Killer, and Ridgway. The two men were forced to live and »

No Stranger Than Love Review

17 June 2016 4:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Early on in No Stranger Than Love, something immediately seems off about the town inhabited by small-town schoolteacher Lucy Sherrington (Alison Brie). In a dynamic reminiscent of There’s Something About Mary, everyone in town seems to be in love with girl-next-door Lucy, and director Nick Wernham’s film — which marks his directorial feature debut — clearly establishes a whimsical, offbeat tone right from the start.

As it turns out, the squeaky-clean Lucy is on the verge of having an affair with fellow teacher (and married man) Clint Coburn (Colin Hanks). However, that rendezvous is cut short when a bottomless hole suddenly appears in Lucy’s living room, trapping Clint deep within the abyss. Making matters worse, a mysterious stranger (Justin Chatwin) arrives in town soon thereafter on a potentially dangerous mission to find Clint. Hilarity ensues, as Lucy must find a way to rescue Clint and keep both their reputations intact. »

Tom Hiddleston Seems to Have Swept Taylor Swift Off Her Feet: Further Proof That He's the Real-Life James Bond

16 June 2016 | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hiddleston. Tom Hiddleston. For those of you who didn't fall for his odd allure as Loki in Thor and The Avengers, or didn't crush on him as F. Scott Fitzgerald in Midnight in Paris, or weren't uncomfortably drawn to him in Crimson Peak—or heaven forbid, were not completely convinced that he could play 007 after watching him spy, lie, save the day and bed the girl(s) in The Night Manager—take note. This is Taylor Swift's new man (or at least her new sitting-on-a-rock-and-kissing buddy), and no matter what he does next, or how long it lasts... He's in the pantheon. Songs will be written about him. And while a quick poll of our office will have you wondering if it's actually »

The Boss movie review: hooray for girl power (boo for nowhere near enough)

9 June 2016 5:51 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Plays with hierarchies and rivalries of women’s lives that often aren’t seen onscreen, and embraces women as powerful. But it’s just not very funny about it. I’m “biast” (pro): really like Melissa McCarthy

I’m “biast” (con): …but often don’t like her material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s mostly more of the same cold, bitter stew that passes for comedy in Hollywood: lots of slapstick and grossout that theoretically appeals only to children, and lots of crudity and viciousness that is allegedly “adult” humor, which leaves you wondering just who the heck is supposed to be the audience for this. And The Boss also suffers from the genre’s typical unconvincing mix of the silly and the sentimental: it is extraordinarily difficult to pull off a shift in tone from Looney Tunes to Frank Capra, and it »

The 12 Hottest Box Office Prospects Coming Out of Cannes

26 May 2016 1:54 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Cannes Film Festival doesn’t much care what the American public likes. Hollywood entries at Cannes 2016, which included recent releases “Money Monster and “The Nice Guys,” played out of competition. And most of the award winners won’t register at the North American box office, no matter how much the critics adore them.

However, there was another set of movies at Cannes. While largely ignored by the jury, these titles have serious aspirations to make a mark at the arthouse this year — and at the Oscars next year. They’re the Cannes films you’re most likely to see.

Here’s our ranking of the movies with distributors that most likely to reach a sizable North American audience this fall.

1. “Loving” Director: Jeff Nichols Distributor: Focus Features

Stars: Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga Release date: November 4, 2016 Cannes section: Competition Reviews: Metascore: 71 Critics’ take: Some reviewers admired this sincere biopic, »

The canon of latter day Woody Allen movies can sometimes be a crapshoot — for every “Midnight In Paris” there tends to be a “To Rome With Love” not far behind. But the director seems to have found his stride in his latest, “Café Society.” While it’ll never be mistaken for Allen’s top tier works, […]

Adrien Brody: Roman Polanski and Woody Allen's Sexual Assault Allegations 'Not Something to Focus On'

16 May 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

French comedian Laurent Lafitte's Roman Polanski rape joke and Ronan Farrow's Woody Allen column have put allegations of sexual assault against both directors back into the spotlight. Adrien Brody, who has worked with both filmmakers, spoke out about the allegations on Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy Monday, and offered his take on whether the director's personal lives can be separated from their art. "Life is very complicated," Brody, 43, said. "I look to collaborate with artistic people and to go into an endeavor without judgment and to hopefully be treated with the same. It's an artistic pursuit, and »

Cannes Review: Woody Allen's "Café Society"

14 May 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This review was originally published in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad. It's reprinted here in a slightly expanded version...

Few things in life are as regular as Woody Allen movies. For the past 40 years or so they arrive exactly once a year. In recent years they generally premiere out of competition at Cannes and predictably reignite the endless cycle of media wars about Woody Allen.

The only thing irregular about the experience is the reviews, box office, and Oscars. For the past 10 years or so it’s been especially hard to predict. In that time he’s delivered critical and commercial Oscar winning hits that the media fawned over (Blue Jasmine, Midnight in Paris), well received films that didn’t quite crossover to that same extent (Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona), critical flops that did surprisingly okay at the box office (To Rome With Love), trifles that people tolerated (Scoop), reanimated »

Hollywood Contenders: Updated Oscar predictions for May

13 May 2016 10:58 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

With the 2016 Cannes Film Festival well underway, now’s the perfect time to give you a new look at Oscar predictions folks! Why, you may ask? Well, having seen two the movies playing at Cannes, it only seems apt. One is Money Monster, which isn’t really of note here, but the other is Woody Allen’s Café Society, which I was lucky enough to see stateside. That one could be a player, and obviously it’s floating around my head as I update these predictions. Read on to see how I think it might go for Allen’s latest, along with all of the other contenders we currently know about! What you’ll see below reflects basically how I currently see the race. The only information I’m working off of that everyone else might not have is having seen Café Society. Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk got »

69th Cannes Film Festival Review – Cafe Society (2016)

12 May 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Café Society, 2016.

Directed by Woody Allen.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Parker Posey, Paul Schneider, Corey Stoll, Blake Lively and Anna Camp.

Synopsis:

A 1930s-inspired comedy about a native New Yorker who transfers to glamorous Hollywood and finds himself in a love triangle with a secretary and a powerful married man.

The Cannes film festival’s love affair with Woody Allen has officially broken records – Wednesday’s world premiere of Café Society marked the third time that one of his features has opened the gala. Fortunately, the period comedy is an audience pleaser, showing a return to form for the veteran director after recent missteps Magic in the Moonlight and Irrational Man.

Set in the 1930s Jazz Age, Café Society follows Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg), a young dreamer from the Bronx who decides to move to Hollywood to work for his uncle Phil, a successful, name-dropping studio executive »
