Sony Slates 'I Saw the Light' for Awards Slot, Tom Hiddleston Looking for First Nom

29 June 2015 3:38 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sony Pictures Classics has dated Marc Abraham's I Saw the Light for a Nov. 27 release, which all but guarantees an Oscar push for the film and most likely a big push for Tom Hiddleston who stars in the feature as legendary country western singer Hank Williams. The pic is now slotted alongside fellow Oscar hopeful The Danish Girl, though both films will probably be looking to make a big splash on the Fall film festival circuit, already establishing an awards season narrative before the general public lays their eyes on either of them. The pic, which also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Bradley Whitford, David Krumholtz and Cherry Jones, chronicles Williams' meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his health and personal life. Hiddleston is probably best known to most as Loki from The Avengers film franchise, but 2015 is looking to be a year where he makes a »

Tilda Swinton to join Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange?’

27 May 2015 11:35 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Brits are taking over Marvel. As we all know, Benedict Cumberbatch is to play the title character in Marvel’s Phase 3 film Doctor Strange, but now it looks like he’s being joined by one of Blighty’s other highly-respected thespians. Tilda Swinton, who appeared the in the brilliant, but bloody dark We Need To Talk About Kevin and the fantastic vampire movie Only Lovers Left Alive, alongside fellow Marvel alumni Tom Hiddleston, is in talks to play the role of The Ancient One in the Scott Derrickson directed adventure.

The film, expected in cinemas in 2017 (November 4th), revolves around a mysterious surgeon who, after injuring his hands, discovers the power of magic.

Doctor Strange is expected to start filming in the UK very soon, so expect the ‘talks’ to be concluded relatively quickly. The role of The Ancient One, the 500-year old mentor of Doctor Strange, has historically »

Tilda Swinton Is In Talks to Play a Tibetan Mystic in Doctor Strange

27 May 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The high priestess of strange Tilda Swinton is in talks to join Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel's Strange, THR reports. Swinton will play the Ancient One, Dr. Strange's mentor, who has a fleet of pupils training to be the world's next top sorcerer. In the comics, the character is male, and Marvel was initially looking for a male actor to fill the role but realized that Swinton's natural otherworldly glow knows no gender (or race, apparently). Nothing is outside of the Swinton wheelhouse: Recently, she's been an ennui-drenched vampire in Only Lovers Left Alive and a sniveling lackey in Snowpiercer, and she'll be Amy Schumer's exacting boss in the upcoming Trainwreck. With the Ancient One's age topping out over 500, it appears Swinton is well on her way to fulfilling her email auto-reply message's prophecy:"Hello, I am away until 01/01/2070 and am unable to read your message." »

Tilda Swinton In Talks For Doctor Strange

27 May 2015 12:56 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

While Tilda Swinton has acted alongside a number of Marvel universe folk in recent years – Chris Evans in Snowpiercer and Tom Hiddleston in Only Lovers Left Alive to name but two – she’s never set foot inside the actual McU. All that is set to change, as she’s in negotiations to join Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange.Sinister’s Scott Derrickson is calling the shots on this one, working from a script by Jon Spaihts. They will bring to life the character originally conjured by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Dr. Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch) starts his story as a selfish New York surgeon who loses his professional skills in a car crash. After falling on hard times, he visits a healer in the Himalayas known as the Ancient One, and learns to tap into psychic and magical powers. In recognition of his selfless efforts to thwart evil fellow disciple Baron Mordo, »

Doctor Strange Looking To Add Tilda Swinton In A Gender Swapping Role

27 May 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Most of the focus in the Marvel-verse is currently on the expansive cast of Captain America: Civil War, but we can.t forget that Doctor Strange is coming down the pipe next year as well. Set to film this fall, Tilda Swinton is joining the cast as an important character, though there movie is making one drastic change that is sure to spark a lot of conversation and controversy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Swinton is in talks to play the Ancient One, a Tibetan mystic (who better for a role like that than the Snowpiercer and Only Lovers Left Alive star?), who serves as a mentor and advisor to the title character, to be played by Benedict Cumberbatch. However, in the comics, the character is a man, while, with Swinton taking the role, it will obviously be a woman. In Doctor Strange​, Cumberbatch plays Stephen Strange, a cocky surgeon »

Tilda Swinton Joins The Marvel Cinematic Universe For Doctor Strange

27 May 2015 12:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Benedict Cumberbatch will have some company as he traverses the world of sorcery in Marvel’s Doctor Strange – THR is reporting today that Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) will be taking on the role of a Tibetan mystic known as The Ancient One (because you didn’t think she’d be playing a straight love interest, now did ya?) in the Scott Derrickson-directed blockbuster, which is intended to simultaneously introduce the Sorcerer Supreme and the more magical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What Marvel fans will make of the casting (The Ancient One was a man in the comics) should be interesting, but there’s no denying the attraction of casting a uniquely talented actress like Swinton in the part of a major comic-book character. She’s transformed herself again and again in everything from Snowpiercer to The Grand Budapest Hotel in recent years, so it’s »

Tilda Swinton In Talks To Play 'The Ancient One' In Marvel's Doctor Strange

27 May 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last December, it was reported that Marvel were considering Morgan Freeman, Bill Nighy, and Ken Watanabe for the role of The Ancient One in Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange, but things have clearly changed since then. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Tilda Swinton is now in talks to play Strange's mentor in the movie, and it's no doubt both a surprising and interesting choice.  Benedict Cumberbatch is playing the hero (who will apparently lead the New Avengers following Captain America: Civil War if recent rumours are to be believed), and seeing him alongside Swinton would no doubt be great. The site adds that Marvel were initially considering keeping the character of The Ancient One male, but changed their mind and have made him a woman instead.  Swinton has also starred in Only Lovers Left Alive, Snowpiercer, and We Need to Talk About Kevin.  »

Amazon Working on Terry Gilliam and Jim Jarmusch's Next Films

14 May 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Amazon seems to have the funds and means to make themselves on par with not only their streaming competitor Netflix but also every other independent studio in Hollywood right now, and with their power it looks like they're going down the auteur route. In addition to producing Spike Lee's next "joint" Chiraq and working on Woody Allen's first-ever TV show, they have also inked deals on the next projects from directors Terry Gilliam and Jim Jarmusch. Deadline broke the story, but it was the astute eyes over at The Playlist found the scoop buried in their report. Amazon has yet to confirm what projects the filmmakers have signed onto with their banner, so to figure out what's in the works one has to rely solely on what each filmmaker announced previously. Although Gilliam expressed interest in making a steampunk version of 1984 in recent history, it would seem this is mostly likely the very, »

Only Lovers Left Alive: A Vampire Flick That Isn’t About Vampires

28 April 2015 6:39 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

In 2013/2014 the world was introduced to Only Lovers Left Alive, a film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. It stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as the titular lovers. It first premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival before it opened in the United States on April 11, 2014. Since its release, the film world is a better place.

Only Lovers Left Alive is a vampire love story that does not spend the entire film focused on the fact that the two many characters are vampires. They don’t spend their time feasting on homeless locals or drunken clubbers. Very little time is devoted to explaining the rituals of their lives as vampires. If it weren’t for the fact that Swinton and Hiddleston drink blood occasionally for the first half of the film (out of classy cocktail glasses) we would hardly realize their true nature.

Instead the film focuses on the two souls that are these characters, »

The Age Of Adaline Review

23 April 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Age of Adaline is based on the improbable premise that a casting director would expect Blake Lively to play a character wise beyond her years. With a limited film resume mostly spent playing arm candy in dude-driven action flicks, pitching The Age of Adaline makes Lively’s starring dramatic presence a tougher sell than the film’s own romantic fable story. But The Age of Adaline is a smarter beast than its gooey exterior lets on, and its precise use of performers, genre tropes, and aesthetics makes it a pleasantly surprising blend of old and new school fairy tale.

Making no bones about its melodramatic intentions, The Age of Adaline operates with restrained but omnipresent emotionality at all times. For a film that’s really more of a character study than a sweeping epic, The Age of Adaline’s biggest, constant risk is assuming the audience will go along with its somberly operatic tone, »

‘What We Do in the Shadows’ DVD Review

10 April 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzalez-Macuer, Stuart Rutherford, Ben Fransham, Jackie van Beek, Elena Stejko, Jason Hoyte, Karen O’Leary, Mike Minogue, Chelsie Preston Crayford, Ian Harcourt, Ethel Robinson, Brad Harding | Written and Directed by Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi

Love it or hate it Twilight did a lot of damage for the vampire in pop culture.  When the movies were finally over and done with and we were free of the scourge of the sparkly ones, the bloodsuckers stayed somewhat in the shadows, though recently making a comeback with good movies like Only Lovers Left Alive.  With that spark of life given to the undead fiends, what they now need is a good injection of the red stuff to truly bring them back to glory.  We may just have that in the form of What We Do in the Shadows.

The Walking Dead, Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut & Hannibal Nominated in 41st Annual Saturn Awards

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well. Also recognized in this year's nominations is Scream Factory's Nightbreed: The Director's Cut Blu-ray, NBC's Hannibal TV series, Only Lovers Left Alive, and many more.

30th Film Independent Spirit Awards: Birdman/Boyhood Split… Nightcrawler & Whiplash Double-Up

22 February 2015 11:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Richard Linklater won for Best Director and Patricia Arquette won the Best Supporting actress for team Boyhood, while Iñárritu’s Birdman claimed Best Picture, Best Actor (Michael Keaton) and Cinematographer (Emmanuel Lubezki) at the 30th Film Independent Spirit Awards last night. The split might foreshadow how the Oscars play out tonite, as the Middleweight Saturday ceremony and Heavyweight Sunday gig are more or less interchangeable. The two films that might gain a little further traction from the tent spotlight include Nightcrawler (which picked up Best First Feature and Best Screenplay) and Whiplash, Damien Chazelle’s deservedly won for Best Supporting Actor and Editing categories. Also worth pointing out is a Land Ho! win in the category we love the most: the John Cassavetes Award. Here are the winners and noms.

And the 2015 Spirit Award winners are…

21 February 2015 6:21 PM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

As usual, the 2015 Spirit Award winners for Best Feature (Birdman), Best Director (Richard Linklater, Boyhood), Best Documentary (Citizenfour), Best International Film (Ida), Best Female Lead (Julianne Moore, Still Alice), and Best Male Lead (Michael Keaton, Birdman) all seem like highly probable precursors for the Oscars. So, if they are just going to predict the Oscars, what is the point of the Spirit Awards? Where the Spirit Awards have historically garnered attention and respect is in categories such as Best First Feature (Nightcrawler), Best First Screenplay (Dear White People), John Cassavetes Award (Land Ho!), Robert Altman Award (Inherent Vice), Piaget Producer's Award (Chad Burris, Elisabeth Holm, Chris Ohlson), Kiehl’s Someone to Watch Award (H.), and Lenscrafters' Truer Than Fiction Award (The Kill Team). For the last two years I have all but dismissed the Spirit Awards in fear that they sold out and essentially became an "Oscar Jr."; but after »
