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, »

Glamorous New Photos From Woody Allen’s ‘Café Society’ Starring Jesse Eisenberg & Kristen Stewart

26 May 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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 »

Opening Day At Cannes: Woody Allen And Donald Sutherland Invade The South Of France And Steal The Show

11 May 2016 6:09 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

For the first time ever, the Cannes Film Festival decided to shake things up and throw a huge “Welcome Party”  for all the festival attendees on Wednesday night following the gala opening night premiere of Woody Allen’s Cafe Society, the multi-Oscar winning director’s third time in that slot and first since Midnight In Paris wowed the Croisette in 2011.

Cannes 2016: Café Society review

11 May 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cafe Society review: Woody Allen’s film for 2016 is a visual delight that captivates from the off. A solid start to this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Woody Allen’s Café Society has the hnour of opening this year’s Cannes Festival. Here’s our Cafe Society review in full.

Cafe Society review

Woody Allen gets the privilege of opening this year’s Cannes Film Festival, an honour which has fallen to his feet twice before with Hollywood Ending in 2002, and the superb Midnight In Paris in 2011. Allen returns to Hollywood for his 2016 entry Café Society, which also screens out-of-competition; his fourteenth film to do so.

Jesse Eisenberg leads the cast as Bobby, a native New Yorker who, after growing tired of his father’s jewelry trade in the Big Apple, heads to Hollywood in the 1930s to bag a job with his Uncle Phil (Steve Carell), one of Hollywood’s top agents. »

[Cannes Review] Café Society

11 May 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Café Society is a quintessential later-period Woody Allen film. That is to say, it’s thoroughly mediocre. It’s by now a sad truism that the octogenarian auteur is more interested in maintaining his prodigious output of at least one feature per annum (he hasn’t missed a beat since 1982) than to strive for the supreme heights he reached time and again in his first three decades as a filmmaker. Nowadays, if one of Allen’s films happens to be above average, all the better. If not, who cares? It’ll make its money back on the strength of the director’s reputation and the bankability of an invariably star-studded ensemble, the Cannes Film Festival will, at the very least, include it in its Out of Competition program – hey, perhaps even grant Allen the opening slot (as just happened for the fourth time with Café Society) – and there’s always »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Café Society’

11 May 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Going into a new Woody Allen film, there’s always the hope that it’s going to be major, like “Blue Jasmine,” and not one of his trifles, like the Allen movies that have opened the Cannes Film Festival in recent years (“Hollywood Ending,” “Midnight in Paris”). At this point, however, his track record vastly favors the probability that it’s going to be a trifle, at which point the question then becomes: Will it be one of his good ones — that is, one of those Allen fables that really sings? “Café Society,” starring Jesse Eisenberg as a sweetly naïve Bronx nebbish who journeys to Hollywood in the 1930s to seek his fortune, has been made with all the verve and high-style panache and star magnetism of a small-scale Allen gem. Yet the film, watchable as it is, never quite overcomes the sense that it’s a lavish diagram working »

From Kristen Stewart to Steven Spielberg, Awards Possibilities Abound in Cannes Lineup

10 May 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Inasmuch as anything can be called “official” in the unscientific business of Oscar-watching, the early-fall festival trifecta of Venice, Telluride and Toronto marks the official start of awards season: Venice, in particular, is on a roll, having premiered the last two best picture winners (“Spotlight” and “Birdman,” not to mention 2013’s close runner-up “Gravity”) in calmly European style before the noise built up on the other side of the pond.

Happily situated in the less frenzied days of spring, Cannes sits at a respectable distance from the mania of the U.S. awards derby. It is, after all, a festival principally devoted to the kind of high-art world cinema that rarely rules the Oscars: For every Palme d’Or winner like “The Pianist” or “Amour” that breaks through to Academy voters, there are several others (“Winter Sleep,” “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” “4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days”) that aren’t remotely on their wavelength. »

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba review – Hollywood's Havana horror

27 April 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The first Hollywood film to be shot in Cuba since Castro isn’t close but no cigar – the Ernest Hemingway biopic is an oceangoing embarrassment

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba holds the distinction of being the first Hollywood production to shoot on the island nation since 1959. But other film-makers looking to leave their mark need not fret, as there’s still an opportunity to make the first American film shot there since Fidel Castro came to power that isn’t a complete, mortifying embarrassment.

Papa is another biopic-through-the-lens of a young acolyte, similar to the recent debacle Nina, though this time its screenplay was written by the witness himself. Giovanni Ribisi is Ed Myers (name changed from the late Denne Bart Petitclerc), a newspaperman in Miami in the late 1950s. Abandoned by his father at a young age, as we’re told through lugubrious narration, he turned to the books of »
