Arthouse Audit: Woody Allen’s ‘Café Society’ Boosted by Kristen Stewart, But Not ‘Equals’

17 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Mid-summer brings the biggest limited opening of 2016, with a return to form by Woody Allen as new distributor Amazon Studios and partner Lionsgate pushed “Café Society” to numbers unseen since last December. It’s not at Allen’s top level, but a huge leap above his last two films as well as anything else so far this year.

For a totally different market, Dinesh D’Souza doc “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” had a limited opening in Middle America with strong front-loaded initial numbers. The political doc goes wider this Friday and could see a better eventual total —via an entirely different audience—than Allen’s film.

Hunt for the Wilderpeople” (The Orchard) from New Zealand leads the films in wider release as it continues to build word-of-mouth success. “Captain Fantastic” (Bleecker Street) boasted a decent second weekend expansion and could end up at a »

New to Streaming: ‘Sing Street,’ ‘Equals,’ ‘Belladonna of Sadness,’ ‘Mustang,’ and More

15 July 2016 7:22 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit the interwebs. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Belladonna of Sadness (Eiichi Yamamoto)

It all begins with Once Upon a Time. Such a simple introduction for Belladonna of Sadness, a 1973 Japanese animated feature whose newfound legacy includes a decades-long disappearance, a dramatic re-emergence, and a growing reputation as a frenzied, pornographic freakout. The final entry in anime elder statesman Osamu Tezuka‘s erotic Animerama trilogy has remained largely unknown to even the most die-hard cult cinephiles, »

Kristen Stewart x 3

15 July 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

1. Film Comment Cover Girl

In case you haven't heard, the summer issue of Film Comment, one of our favorite magazines since forever, is out. You can purchase it here. And guess what? Our friend and podcast mate Nick Davis wrote the cover story "The Age of Kristen Stewart" 

The twenty-six year old actress works non-stop. She'll soon hit 40 movies and she only started 15 years ago. (The first movie that people tend to remember her from is Panic Room as Jodie Foster's daughter.) She has not one but three movies this year, hence the cover story, with two hitting theaters simultaneously today.

2. Cafe Society 

Now Playing Limited Release

Woody Allen's new movie (they tend to expand quickly so if you're not on the coasts you probably only have a week or two to wait) is a melancholy dramedy. Jesse Eisenberg is a young up-and-comer who ditches working for his powerful »

Equals

14 July 2016 5:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

So here's the thing: Early Internet buzz kept calling this sci-fi parable a sterile, sexless drag in which everyone looks the same and wears the same clothes. Wrong. Actually, Equals is very sexy, mostly because there isn't much of it and yet you feel two people so longing to have it. Nia (Kristen Stewart)  and Silas (Nicholas Hoult) are two work drones who live in solitary cubicles, get up every day, dress all in white and labor in some kind of futuristic collective called the Collective. Everyone is equal in »

‘Equals’ Review: Kristen Stewart Is The Only Bright Spot In This Dull Dystopian Romance

13 July 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Unfolding like a narcotized, hyper-literal remake of “Pleasantville” that looks as though it were almost entirely shot on the monochromatic set of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video, Drake Doremus’ “Equals” is a painfully inert sci-fi romance that commits the gravest possible sin of modern cinema: It (almost) wastes Kristen Stewart.

One of those dystopian stories in which the vast majority of the world-building is accomplished via an inelegant barrage of expository information, “Equals” acclimates us to its sterile vision of the future by shoving information through the various screens that are built in to its set design. For example, a desk-sized tablet tells its user that The Great War eradicated most of mankind, bombs scorching 99.6% of the Earth’s inhabitable land (and 100% of its ugly people, it would seem). You know, just the trivial kind of detail that citizens of tomorrow might be liable to forget if not reminded by their inanimate workstations. »

Kristen Stewart shines in the sci-fi love story “Equals”

12 July 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Slowly but surely, Kristen Stewart has been becoming one of our most interesting young actresses. At the same time, filmmaker Drake Doremus has been crafting some under the radar yet memorable work, namely with Like Crazy and Breathe In. Now, they’ve come together for Equals, a science fiction romance opening this weekend that’s really quite interesting. I saw the movie back at the Tribeca Film Festival and found it very compelling, especially for Stewart’s turn, as well as in regards to Doremus as an evolving director. Stewart also has Woody Allen’s new film Cafe Society hitting this week, and I’ll continue my praise of that one in a few days, but today I’m focused on Doremus’ project with her. The flick is in some ways a sci-fi/dystopian take on Romeo and Juliet. It follows Silas (Nicholas Hoult) as he navigates a supposed “utopia »

Italy’s Indiana and Murdoch-owned Pay-tv Sky Team up on Content Factory (Exclusive)

23 June 2016 7:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Expanding Italian film and TV company Indiana Production, which recently made a splash in Cannes by announcing Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland-starrer “The Leisure Seeker,” are teaming up with Murdoch-owned pay-tv operator Sky Italia on a “content factory.”

The initiative, called Writers’ Couch, aims to nurture local writing talents in a first for Italy where subpar screenplays are considered an industry sore spot.  It is being set up in Rome and Milan in collaboration with screenwriter Nicola Guaglianone and his DropOut Films.

Guaglianone is probably Italy’s hottest screenwriter at present. He was the main writer on offbeat superhero movie “They Call Me Jeeg,” a fresh riff on both formulaic Hollywood franchises and on a 1970 Japanese cartoon series. “Jeeg” (pictured) is a recent sleeper hit at the Italian box office and was the big winner in April at the David di Donatello Awards, the country’s top film nods. »

'I never knew how much I'd write crying': Peter Bradshaw on film star deaths

23 June 2016 5:26 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Following the loss of actor Anton Yelchin, our movie critic reflects on how reporting celebrity deaths occupies a greater part of his work in the digital age, and what that tells us of society, grief and stardom

On Sunday night, I wrote a blogpost about Anton Yelchin, the young Russian-born actor — most famous for playing Chekov in the new Star Trek movies — who had died at 27 in a freak accident. I wrote about the sweet, childlike openness of his face, his excellent performance in the millennials’ romance Like Crazy, and the poignancy of the way he was starting to look leaner and tougher in Jeremy Saulnier’s hardcore horror Green Room. It was only on reading Tom Hiddleston’s online tribute to Yelchin the next day that I realised to my mortification that I had forgotten about his subtly excellent work opposite Hiddleston in Jim Jarmusch’s vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive. »

Anton Yelchin's Like Crazy Director Remembers Late Actor's 'Magical' Shoot with Jennifer Lawrence and Felicity Jones

22 June 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The director of Anton Yelchin's 2011 film Like Crazy is remembering the late actor for his unique personality that he brought to his work on camera. "He'd make you laugh one second and two minutes later he'd make you cry," Drake Doremus tells People. "That happened all the time on set. We'd be goofing around and all of a sudden we'd jump into a scene and he'd be so emotional and so honest. There was just no bulls---. He wasn't really an actor in that sense, just a human being." Doremus recalls wanting to work with Yelchin immediately after they first met. »

Anton Yelchin Remembered: See His Screen Debut as a Precocious 10-Year-Old in Episode of ER

20 June 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Anton Yelchin was pronounced dead early Sunday after his body was found pinned between his vehicle and the gate of his home in Studio City, California, and authorities say that the car may not have been properly parked and rolled backward, trapping the 27-year-old actor. The tragedy cut short a bright, rising career that included such films as the rebooted Star Trek movies and the indie drama Like Crazy - and it was a career that started early on for the talented star. The actor made his screen debut as a precocious 10-year-old in an episode of TV's ER from »

‘Freak Accident’ That Killed Anton Yelchin May Be Due to Recently Recalled Jeep

20 June 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Over the weekend, the tragic death of actor Anton Yelchin broke the hearts of fans and friends alike, an event made all the worse by the bizarre nature of the single-car accident that killed him. TMZ, who first broke the news of Yelchin’s passing, billed the event as a “freak accident,” but more details have emerged that paint the event in an even more upsetting and confounding light.

Auto-centric website Jalopnik reports that Yelchin died after his own vehicle, a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, rolled down his steep driveway and trapped the actor against his own security gate at the bottom of the incline. As the website shares, Yelchin’s car was the same “model that Fiat Chrysler recently recalled after its unconventional gear shifter led to several documented rollaway accidents.”

What Was Your Favorite Anton Yelchin Performance? — CriticWire Survey

20 June 2016 8:13 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, the CriticWire Survey asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday morning. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of the late Anton Yelchon, who was killed in a tragic accident early Sunday morning, which was your favorite of his performances?

Christopher Campbell (@thefilmcynic), Nonfics

It’s definitely not his best movie, and maybe it’s not really technically his best acting, but my favorite of Yelchin’s performances is in “Terminator Salvation.” You could tell he tried to sound like Michael Biehn in “The Terminator” in his portrayal of young Kyle Reese, and that meant a lot to me as a fan of these movies. And it shows how much he took care in his work »

Anton Yelchin (1989-2016)

20 June 2016 7:09 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This calendar year has been filled to the brim with unthinkables. The latest terribly sad happening: The talented Russian-American actor Anton Yelchin died yesterday in a freak accident at only 27 years of age. He was crushed by his own car on its steep driveway incline.

Yelchin was best known to general audiences as Chekov in the modern Star Trek franchise but to us he'll always be Byrd Huffstodt (the sensitive brainy teen in the underappreciated cable drama Huff) or awestruck poseur Ian (from the hipster vampire greatness that was Only Lovers Left Alive), and especially Jacob from the college romance drama Like Crazy (2011). Though Like Crazy was mostly heralded at the time for Felicity Jones's work as his British girlfriend, it was Yelchin that gave the movie its lovestruck foolish soul... but nuanced emotionally astute work by male actors, especially young ones, in romantic dramas are rarely given their just critical props. »
