Matthew McConaughey Says He’s He’s Talked To Nic Pizzolatto About Playing Rust Cohle On ‘True Detective’ Again

23 June 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The once-unstoppable McConaissance has taken a few blows recently. After years in the rom-com wilderness, Matthew McConaughey had a run of terrific movies in the early part of this decade, with “Bernie,” “Killer Joe,” “Mud,” “Magic Mike” and “The Wolf Of Wall Street” all putting the star firmly back on the A-list, culminating in HBO […]

‘Free State of Jones’ Review: Matthew McConaughey’s Civil War Story Has No Guts, No ‘Glory’

20 June 2016 5:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Hate — as no one reading this needs to be reminded — clings for life to this country like a cat with its claws sunk into the side of a space shuttle as it screams towards the stratosphere. So while the inert, inelegant and (wait for it) somewhat problematic “Free State of Jones” may not be a valuable contribution to the canon of American historical epics, the  shapelessness of its story is worth celebrating for how palpably it conveys the tenacity of prejudice.

In the wake of emancipation, a nefarious “apprenticeship” system is enacted in order to resume the tradition of slavery by another name; from the ruins of the Confederate Army, the Ku Klux Klan rises up to lynch a race of newly liberated citizens. And all the while, a brusque and bearded Matthew McConaughey rides against injustice from deep within the swampy heart of Mississippi, punctuating a half-century of historical »

'Delilah Dirk': Graphic novel adventurer coming to the big screen

27 May 2016 1:34 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As Tomb Raider gets a cinematic reboot and Indiana Jones is coming back for one more ride, another adventurer is getting set to come to the big screen. Disney has purchased the film rights to Delilah Dirk And The Turkish Lieutenant, the New York Times best-selling graphic novel about a globe-trotting swashbuckler set in the 19th century, this according to Deadline. When Dirk was published in 2012, it was so well received that it won Publishers Weekly annual Best Children's Book award. It has since resulted in a follow up, Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling, published earlier this year. The publication reports that the film will be live-action and will be produced by Roy Lee (Lego Movie, How to Train Your Dragon) as well as Mark Mower (Bernie) and Justin Giritlian. No release date is yet set for the film. »

Family of Murder Victim of Bernie Tiede, Once Subject of Hollywood Movie, Thankful After 'Known Con Man' Is Re-Sentenced to Life

29 April 2016 10:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The family of murder victim Marjorie Nugent, whose killer, Bernie Tiede, was the subject of a 2011 Hollywood movie, is glad that Tiede is back in prison for life. Bernie Tiede, who was first convicted for the 1996 murder in 1999, was later granted an appeal based on the theory that he was in a dissociative state at the time of the killing due to abuse he'd suffered earlier in life. But on April 22, a second jury ruled that Tiede should spend the rest of his life behind bars for killing Nugent, 81, and hiding her body in a freezer. Mike DeGeurin, Tiede's attorney, »

Everybody Wants Some!! Review

7 April 2016 10:36 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s not easy to make something seem so effortless… so easygoing. Twenty-five years after his breakout hit Slacker, Richard Linklater still proves he’s a master of the “hang-out” film. Even when you may not even like the characters – as might be the case with this outing – Linklater has a way of showing characters simply hanging out, shooting-the-shit, and being themselves, and yet presenting them in a way that is absolutely fascinating. And what makes it all the more remarkable is that with films like Slacker, Dazed And Confused, The Before Trilogy, and now Everybody Wants Some!!, he hits it out of the park every time. He makes it look like a game of T-ball, when really it’s a lot harder to nail than that.

On the surface, Everybody Wants Some!! is a film about a bunch of college jocks in 1980 drinking beer and trying to pick up »

New Sentencing Trial Begins Today for Convicted Killer Bernie Tiede, Who Was Once Subject of Movie

7 April 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A convicted murderer whose story inspired a Hollywood film was back in a Texas courtroom on Wednesday for a new sentencing trial, People confirms. Bernie Tiede's attorney, Michael DeGeurin, tells People that testimony began Wednesday after three days of preliminary hearings. Tiede, 57, has been free on bond for the last two years after courts dismissed his life sentence for murdering an affluent widow. His sentence was tossed after new evidence came to light, according to court papers. A jury could decide to free Tiede, who was portrayed by actor Jack Black in director Richard Linklater's 2011 film Bernie, or return »

Real-life inspiration for Jack Black's Bernie returning to court in Texas

7 April 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Bernie Tiede, the convicted murderer who inspired director Richard Linklater’s 2011 film, will reportedly find out if he will be sent back to jail to complete his sentence

Bernie Tiede, the inspiration for Richard Linklater’s Bernie, a biopic of a lovable convicted murderer, is returning to court to find out if he will be sent back to jail for life or freed from his sentence, according to CBS News.

Tiede, of Carthage, Texas, has been free on bond for almost two years after serving 17 years of his sentence. In 1996, the former mortician shot and killed 81-year-old Majorie Nugent four times in the back before stuffing her body into a freezer. He was released in May 2014 after his appeals attorney, Jodi Cole, uncovered new evidence that Tiede had been sexually abused as a child and might have experienced a dissociative episode at the time of the shooting. Cole became involved »

Saturday Night Live Recap: Larry David Hosts

7 February 2016 4:57 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our host for tonight is Larry David: a comedian, writer, producer and actor who is best known for his work on Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and most recently, playing Bernie Sanders on this season of Saturday Night Live. He also served as a writer on SNL for just one season in the ‘80’s before becoming the force behind television’s most popular sitcom, basically making him this show’s Jennifer Hudson. Let’s see how he fares tonight!   Cold Open: Ted Cruz delivers a message to the American people. Taran Killam’s Cruz impression isn’t quite as studied as his Trump, and honestly I’m not totally sure why they don’t still have him playing Trump, or perhaps Marco Rubio, when they could easily pass Ted Cruz on to Bobby Moynihan, who portrayed him well in last season’s The Rock episode. But Killam is a good »

‘Castro’s Daughter’ Movie Adds Maven Pictures (Exclusive)

31 January 2016 5:52 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Maven Pictures has joined Mankind Entertainment in producing historical drama “Castro’s Daughter,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Maven’s Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler will be joining the production as lead producers with developing producers John Martinez O’Felan, Joe Lamy and Mexican filmmaker Luis Mandoki, who came on board last July to direct.

The screenplay was redeveloped this year by Mandoki and Nilo Cruz, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Anna in the Tropics.” Cruz escaped Cuba as a child. Oscar winner Bobby Moresco (“Crash”) is also credited as a co-writer.

The announcement comes six months after the July 20 resumption of normal ties between the U.S. and Cuba.

“Castro’s Daughter” is based on the life story of Alina Fernandez, who was born in 1956 — three years before her father Fidel Castro took power. Fernandez was Castro’s love child with Naty Revuelta, a wealthy socialite who sold her »

'Kung Fu Panda 3' Takes the Weekend Box Office with $41M

31 January 2016 11:11 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While January isn't typically a big month for box office blockbusters, there can be the occasional movie that opens big. Two weeks ago, Ride Along 2 breathed some life into the new year with a respectable $35.2 million opening frame, but last weekend, it dropped a whopping 64.7% and slipped from first to third place, with the holdover The Revenant taking the top spot in its fifth week in theaters. This weekend is shaping up to be the biggest frame of the new year so far, with three heavily-promoted new releases, Kung Fu Panda 3, Fifty Shades of Black and The Finest Hours. Box Office Mojo is reporting that Kung Fu Panda 3 took the top spot at the box office with $41 million.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is expected to easily take the top spot with a projected $48 million, which isn't terribly surprising given this franchise's pedigree of critical acclaim and box office success. »

‘Bad Bromance’ DVD Review

17 January 2016 8:57 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn, Jeffrey Tambor, Russell Posner, Henry Zebrowski, Kyle Bornheimer, Mike White, Corrina Lyons, Donna Duplantier, Charlotte Gale, Denise Williamson, Han Soto, Danielle Greenup, Dermot Mulroney | Written and Directed by Andrew Mogel, Jarrad Paul

Bad Bromance. That’s an interesting title… You might not have heard it till the debut of this movie on DVD. Hang on though. Did anyone go and see The D Train in UK cinemas? I tried. It was screening once a day at a cinema 20 minutes drive away from me and only at 11pm every night. Talk about burying a movie. Maybe that’s why The D Train has been retitled Bad Bromance for its DVD release? Or maybe it’s because this “comedy” is anything but and the the reviews of the cinema release were less than stellar.

The film sees Jack Black (School of Rock) star as Dan “The D Train” (see, »
