Watch: Oscar Isaac And Jessica Chastain Are At War In First Trailer For 'A Most Violent Year'

18 September 2014 10:28 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Oscar campaigns are laid out months in advances, and as we discussed on our recent podcast, some awards season psychics like to set up the narrative far in advance, even if a lot can change. Those prognosticators better get ready, because the first trailer for J.C. Chandor's "A Most Violent Year" is here, and it looks like strong stuff. The latest from the director behind "Margin Call" and "All Is Lost" is led by Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, telling the story of an immigrant and his family trying to expand their business amidst the rampant violence, decay, and corruption during one of the most violent years in New York City's history. The film looks to be a pretty fascinating look at the cost of ambition, and the cinematography by Bradford Young ("Ain't Them Bodies Saints") looks pretty damn impressive. "A Most Violent Year" arrives in limited release on »

Watch: 'A Most Violent Year' Teaser, Release Date & Poster Finally Arrive

18 September 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Chastain and Isaac ("Inside Llewyn Davis") star as the heads of an oil business who get caught up in the New York City criminal underworld during the winter of 1981. Chandor, Oscar-nominated for "Margin Call" and acclaimed for "All Is Lost," directs his own original screenplay. Is it an Academy contender? We won't know until we see the film, which will roll out nationally in January after its December limited opening. Isaac, who ably carried "Inside Llewyn Davis," is still on the rise (he's superb in Patricia Highsmith mystery-thriller "The Two Faces of January.") And with "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby" receding and "Miss Julie" not taking off at the Toronto International Film Festival, this may be Chastain's best Oscar shot.  »

'A Most Violent Year' sets release date, joins Oscar race

18 September 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A Most Violent Year, director J.C. Chandor’s film about a successful New York businessman whose quest for the American Dream is punctured by the gritty realities of 1981 New York, will open Dec. 31 and qualify for this year’s Oscar’s races.

Oscar Isaac plays Abel, the idealistic and well-intentioned gas businessman whose growing profits bump up against the New York underworld. His wife, Anna (Jessica Chastain), has some family connections who might be able to lend him some muscle. Albert Brooks also stars.

The film, distributed by A24, will expand nationally in January. It’s Chandor’s third film, »

The acclaimed film is based upon David Mamet’s award-winning and follows a group of desperate real estate agents in Chicago. Think of it as a low-key Margin Call or Wolf Of Wall Street of its day. When a hotshot executive (Alec Baldwin) from the head office arrives and proposes a vicious sales competition, in which the losers are fired, »

Toronto: Lionsgate/Roadside Land Michael Douglas Thriller ‘The Reach’ For $2 Million

7 September 2014 9:36 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions are closing a deal around $2 million for U.S. rights for The Reach, the Jean-Baptiste Leonetti-directed thriller that stars Michael Douglas as an arrogant businessman/big game hunter who pursues a trophy and accidentally kills an innocent man. Jeremy Irvine plays the young guide who took him into the vast expanses of the Mojave desert. When the guide refuses to conspire in a cover-up, it becomes a mano a mano fight to the death as the hunter attempts to cover his tracks. Stephen Susco wrote the script and Douglas produced the tight thriller with Robert Mitas. Wme Global is brokering the deal that calls for the kind of day and date release that Lionsgate and Roadside executed so well on the films Arbitrage and Margin Call. The Reach plays in the Special Presentations section here at Toronto.

Tiff Exclusive: New Images Of Jennifer Connelly & Anthony Mackie In Paul Bettany's 'Shelter'

5 September 2014 9:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As detailed in fairly recent, candid interviews, Paul Bettany has been frustrated these last few years: the enormously talented British actor got stuck in poor Screen Gems actioners like "Legion" and "Priest," or in supporting starry flops like "The Tourist" or "Transcendence," with only the occasional "Margin Call" or "Blood" to remind us why we liked him so much in the first place. But he's finding his mojo once again: he's got another Johnny Depp team-up on the way next year with "Mortdecai," and after four voice-only credits in the Marvel movie universe, will appear in person as The Vision in next summer's mega-blockbuster "Avengers: Age Of Ultron." But first, he's about to show a whole new side by making his directorial debut at the Toronto International Film Festival with "Shelter." Starring Bettany's partner Jennifer Connelly and the great Anthony Mackie, it's an intriguing »

Venice 2014: '99 Homes' review

30 August 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Festival favourite Ramin Bahrani returns to the Venice Lido with 99 Homes (2014), a dramatic thriller set at the sharp-end of the housing crisis. The very first shot shows that there is blood on the bathroom walls of America. The recent economic travails are not just some victimless white collar larks - Margin Call style - but rather a human tragedy, the result of an ongoing and systematic fracking of the middle-class, driving thousands of homes into foreclosure and leaving families on the street. Shedding his superhero costume, Andrew Garfield plays Dennis Nash, an ordinary working stiff - a construction worker - living with his son (Noah Lomax) and his mother (Laura Dern) in their small suburban home.

29 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, Netflix Streaming adds new movies and TV shows to its library. Here is a list of some that you might be interested in. Some of these may have been added halfway through or near the end of August, but we're going to include them in this roundup anyway since you might have missed them. Some of these may also have previously been on Netflix, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we've left out in the comments below.All Is Lost (2013) (available September 2)It's Robert Redford versus Mother Earth in Margin Call director J.C. Chandor's visceral indie drama. All Is Lost doesn't waste time on faux backstory or sappy characterizations. In a heartbeat, a leak in Redford's boat interrupts his sail around the Indian Ocean and he has to fix it. It's the beginning »

19 August 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

After saving the world from giant robots earlier this summer, but not saving movie-goers from making themselves more stupid, Transformers: Age of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg will remain a little  more grounded with his next project. Deadline has word that Wahlberg is currently in talks to star in Deepwater Horizon, the drama about the headline-making oil rig of the same name which exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in a catastrophic oil spill, the likes of which haven't been seen since the Exxon Valdez oil spill incident back in 1989. Wahlberg will play the second manager in command on the oil rig in the story about what happened in the 48 hours leading up to the explosion and what followed immediately after. Margin Call writer and director J.C. Chandor is behind the camera for the film based on The New York Times article “Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hour,” highlighting the courage »

Mark Wahlberg Boards Chandor's 'Deepwater Horizon' Movie

19 August 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

J.C. Chandor is easily one of the most exciting directors working right now and the guy has only two films -- Margin Call, All is Lost -- under his belt. Just the mere range of his projects from his tackling of the Wall Street crisis to a nearly silent film featuring Robert Redford lost at sea, and his next film, A Most Violent Year, tackling 1981 New York's epidemic of violence has me begging to see it as soon as possible. Next up is Deepwater Horizon, a film based on the disaster surrounding the Gulf of Mexico explosion and subsequent oil spill based on David Barstow, David Rohde and Stephanie Saul's New York Times piece detailing the rig's final hours. Just knowing Chandor's intimate way of filming makes the film a future top priority. Today the first bit of casting has been announced as Mark Wahlberg will star as the No. »

Mark Wahlberg In Talks To Lead Deepwater Horizon

19 August 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Continuing his admirable trend of fluctuating between studio blockbusters and more narratively ambitious projects, Mark Wahlberg has entered into talks to star in Deepwater Horizon, which will tell the dramatic true tale of the 2010 Bp oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, which caused the worst oil spill since the Exxon Valdez.

Wahlberg will star as the No. 2 manager on the doomed oil rig, who worked to rescue men in the water on that disastrous day. The project, adapted from The New York Times’ article “Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hour,” specifically highlights the courage of those on the rig when it blew, killing 11 and injuring 16 others, as they attempted to salvage the rig and save their colleagues.

The actor is hotter than ever thanks to his acclaimed performance in the Peter Berg-directed war action-drama Lone Survivor and his lead role in Transformers: Age of Extinction, which broke a »

Second Look: Frances Ha, Melancholia, Short Term 12 And More (Episode 5)

12 August 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With so many films releasing each year, it’s impossible to catch them all. No matter how many movies you see, there are always a handful that manage to get by. You pledge to catch them at a later date, or maybe when they hit Blu-Ray, but we all know how it goes. You never get around to watching them and as more and more time passes, they get completely forgotten. It’s a shame, too, because there really are so many great movies that get overlooked each and every year and unfortunately, don’t achieve the mainstream success that they deserve.

Here at We Got This Covered, we’re hoping to remedy this problem by starting a new web show titled Second Look, where each week we’ll suggest several great movies that you might not have seen yet. On the last episode, we presented you with Margin Call, »

Hollywood Market Research Firm C4 Finalizes Launch

6 August 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Newly-minted Hollywood market research firm C4 has finalized its acquisition of Motion Picture Group’s data assets, six weeks after announcing the new venture.

The announcement came Wednesday from founders and film producers D. Todd Shepherd and George Waud of Miscellaneous Entertainment, film producer-financier Michael Benaroya and David Lugliani of Mpg. Former Otx and Mpg executive Vincent Bruzzese is running C4.

Bruzzese told Variety that C4 currently has 20 employees and should be at about 45 by October. He said that the new entity, which has several major studios as clients, is focused on dealing more effectively with consumer behavior than what most other research firms provide.

Lugliani had objected to the formation of C4 when it was announced on June 24 but the parties were able to reach an amicable resolution, according to Bruzzese.

“We are all very happy that we could work out this mutually beneficial deal with Mpg and its advisors, »

‘Snowpiercer’ Hits $3.8 Million on VOD as Weinstein Co. Shakes Up Distribution

29 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The indie movie market needed a kick in the pants this summer.

Other than “Chef” and the still-expanding “Boyhood,” arthouse films have struggled in theaters. But amid the doldrums, the Weinstein Co. has taken some radical steps, playing around with platforms even more than usual.

The studio’s Radius-twc label unveiled “Snowpiercer” on-demand, with Bong Joon-ho’s film still in theaters. The picture has racked up an impressive $3.8 over its first three weeks on VOD, while pulling in a respectable $3.9 million over five weeks of in theaters. It’s expected to become the company’s highest-grossing VOD release.

And while there are questions as to whether it could have minted more coin with a bigger theatrical play, the quirky sci-fi pic might have been tough to market to a mass audience.

“Some people used to view VOD and multiplatform releasing as a dumping ground for movies a studio doesn’t believe in theatrically, »
