Diversity Scandal Overlooks Historic Year for Women at Oscars

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to this year’s Academy Awards, no word is more buzzworthy than “diversity”. For the second year in a row the Oscars have nominated only white actors in their four main acting categories, sparking backlash and, as a result, inciting the Academy to announce new changes to tackle its “diversity problem”.

Amidst another year of #OscarsSoWhite trending on Twitter, however, the fact that 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for women has been largely overlooked. Three of this year’s best picture nominees (BrooklynRoomMad Max: Fury Road) are female-centric and feature strong female protagonists in the center of the action. In fact, even outside of those films and their performances, a number of women are nominated for best picture as producers, as well. Kristie Macosko Krieger is nominated for Bridge of Spies, Blye Pagon Faust is nominated for Spotlight, Dede Gardner »

'Pandemic' Trailer Pulls You Directly Into the Zombie Apocalypse

1 February 2016 6:34 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in January 2015, we reported that Content Media has acquired distribution rights for a new zombie thriller entitled Pandemic, which gives viewers a first-person perspective on this apocalyptic event. Almost exactly one year later, we finally have the first trailer and poster for this movie, with Content Media setting an April 1 release date. As you can see in the trailer below, this isn't your typical zombie movie, putting you right in the middle of the undead action.

Pandemic is set in the near future, where a virus of epic proportions has overtaken the planet. There are more infected than uninfected, and humanity is losing its grip on survival. Its only hope is finding a cure and keeping the infected contained. Lauren (Rachel Nichols) is a doctor, who, after the fall of New York, comes to Los Angeles to lead the charge in the hunt for uninfected civilian survivors. Lauren's objective »

Ed Lauter Exemplified Versatility, Authenticity in Character Actor’s Craft

28 January 2016 11:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Being one of the top character actors of American film and television must be the ultimate double-edged career sword.

On the one hand, if you’re good — and the late Ed Lauter was one of American cinema’s great character actors — you work all the time. On the other hand, as Lauter told Shock Cinema magazine back in 2010, “Sometimes people don’t know my name. They’ll say, ‘Oh, yeah! There’s that guy! You were in … Jesus Christ … you were in … in …’ So, in a way it’s good — and in a way it’s bad.”

Lauter was not alone in his plight. He and his fellow character actors who consistently deliver the goods have been a mainstay of American cinema since the days of the Hollywood’s “stock players,” a moniker that devalues the work of great performers from Hattie McDaniel to Peter Lorre, from Sidney Greenstreet to »

Key & Peele Risk It All For A Cute Little Kitten In Red Band Trailer For Keanu

21 January 2016 12:14 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In light of today’s riotous first trailer for Keanu, we can all safely conclude that David Leitch and Chad Stahelski’s cult hit John Wick is now forever a part of popular culture – and we’re okay with that. While the Keanu Reeves-fronted actioner isn’t referenced explicitly during the hilarious sizzle reel for Peter Atencio’s flick, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s (Aka Key & Peele) adventure is essentially a riff on John Wick‘s plot.

Featuring delightfully over-the-top firefights and a kitten that could be line to dethrone The Artist‘s Uggie as the cutest movie animal, today’s slice of footage reads like an Internet fever dream. After a disheartening breakup with his girlfriend, Rell (Jordan Peele) skips all five stages of grief when the titular kitten walks into his life, only to be cruelly kidnapped a few days later.

Academy Members Defend Their Oscar Votes: “To Imply We Are Racists Is Extremely Offensive”

20 January 2016 9:01 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

The Hollywood Reporter

It has been a week of uncomfortable conversations in Hollywood. While many agree that the Academy’s overwhelmingly white membership does play a role in the types of films and performances that get Oscar attention, some white members privately express resentment over accusations of racism in failing to nominate a single nonwhite actor or anoint Straight Outta Compton a best picture candidate.

Penelope Ann Miller, best known for Carlito’s Way and The Artist, is a member of the actors branch that could have nominated Creed‘s Michael B. Jordan, Concussion‘s Will Smith, The Hateful Eight‘s Samuel L. Jackson or Beasts of No Nation‘s Idris Elba. “I voted for a number of black performers, and I was sorry they weren’t nominated,” she tells THR. “But to imply that this is because all of us are racists is extremely offensive.

What the Critics’ Choice Awards Can Tell Us About Oscar

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

The Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their Critics’ Choice Awards last evening in Los Angeles and is the first awards ceremony since the Academy released their official nominations last Thursday.

Those looking to the Critics’ Choice Awards in hopes of fleshing out their Oscar predictions will notice a few differences between last week’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s awards in the major categories. Most notably is the fact that Spotlight won best picture after being entirely shut out by the HFPA at the Globes.

Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), and Brie Larson (Room) all repeated their Globes success with acting wins, but Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) took home the best supporting actress award in lieu of Kate Winslet’s (Steve Jobs) win the week before.

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller took home the night’s best director award, »

Nicolas Benamou on ‘Full Speed’: ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ Meets ‘Speed’

17 January 2016 11:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Nicolas Benamou’s credit rises by the hour – or 90 minutes, to be more exact. Gonzo bro comedy “Babysitting 2,” which he co-directed with franchise star Philippe Lacheau, is France’s third biggest French bow of 2015 and 25% up on the 2014 original. Punching a first-six-week 2.9 million admissions in France for Universal Pictures Intl. – some €18.8 million ($20.6 million) in gross box office – from a Dec. 2 bow, it is still No. 3 at the French B.O., the biggest in Europe with the U.K.’s.

Now, coming soon to France, is his first solo outing since the saga: “Full Speed.” It has large production pedigree: Marci Cherqui’s Chic Films, which backed Jacques Audiard’s “A Prophet”; Thomas Langmann at La Petite Reine, who won 2012’s Best Picture Oscar for “The Artist”; Wild Bunch, which co-produces and distributes in France. Starring Andre Dussollier (“My Golden Days”) and José Garcia (“Would I Lie to You »
