Bryan Cranston Plays The Shunned Screenwriter In First Trailer For Biopic Trumbo

13 August 2015 7:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After securing its place among the crowded attendees of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, we now have the maiden trailer for Jay Roach’s (The Campaign) upcoming biopic Trumbo, which has Breaking Bad fan-favorite Bryan Cranston in the lead role as the shunned screenwriter.

Charting the overly successful career of the titular, 1940s scribe, our first look at the feature sees Cranston’s reign atop the Hollywood writer hierarchy come to a crushing end. With a palpable anti-Communist mentality engulfing the United States, Trumbo is effectively blacklisted from Tinsel Town, leaving his professional and personal life in a tattered heap. As Cranston’s lead engineers a way to rally against the system, his campaign draws in some of the A-listers of the time including everyone from Hedda Hopper to John Wayne, and Kirk Douglas to Otto Preminger.

Once the highest paid screenwriter in Hollywood at the time, Trumbo »

Bryan Cranston is blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo in biopic trailer

12 August 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Dalton Trumbo was a Hollywood screenwriter in the ’40s who was successfully making pictures until the McCarthy hearings had him, along with many other Old Hollywood luminaries, accused to be a Communist and blacklisted from working in the movie industry. But he later went on to write such classics as Roman Holiday and Spartacus, among others.

Bryan Cranston is continuing to take the leap from TV to movie stardom by portraying the screenwriter in a new biopic, Trumbo. Jay Roach’s (Recount, The Campaign, Meet the Fockers) will premiere at Tiff in September ahead of a November 6 limited release. Here’s the full synopsis:

The successful career of Hollywood screenwriter, Dalton Trumbo, comes to an end when he is blacklisted in the 1940s for being a Communist.

Watch: Bryan Cranston Is A Blacklisted Hollywood Writer In The First Trailer For Jay Roach’s ‘Trumbo’

12 August 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You know the name Jay Roach from some pretty broad and silly comedies: tthe “Austin Powers” films, “Meet the Parents” films, “Dinner for Schmucks,” and most recently the American political farce “The Campaign,” with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis. But Roach is finally getting serious, though this tendency has been percolating for some time, as evidenced by his lesser-seen, made-for-hbo movies “Recount” and “Game Change.” Roach’s next film is “Trumbo,” a movie centered on famous screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. The titular character is played by Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), and the cast also features an impressive ensemble cast that includes Helen Mirren, Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, John Goodman, plus Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., Alan Tudyk and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Uggie, the Dog From The Artist, Has Died: Report

11 August 2015 11:47 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Uggie, the lovable scene-stealing canine that memorably appeared in The Artist, as well as a slew of commercials, and helped to further legitimize the role of dogs in movies, has died, according to reports. He was 13 (nearing 100 in dog years). TMZ reports that the Jack Russell terrier was put down last week in L.A. following a tussle with a nettlesome prostate tumor.

Ant-Man movie review: superhero reduction

13 July 2015 1:19 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Marvel’s tiniest hero stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s smallest movie so far, one that loses Paul Rudd’s charm among familiar comic-book action. I’m “biast” (pro): love Paul Rudd

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Marvel’s tiniest hero! Now starring in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s smallest movie so far. Also its most run-of-the-mill movie so far.

This was bound to happen eventually. There are only so many ways you can take a guy — always a guy! — who’s a little bit messed up but basically a decent fellow who just needs a little redemption to set him on the right road, expose him to a little magical mad science, give him a special suit to run around in, and set him loose on the bad guys.

We have seen this all before. Oh, sure, »

Survivor movie review: security theater

4 June 2015 9:19 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

If there’s a thriller to be found in international travel regulations, this is not it. Makes a mockery of the unsung heroes it’s meant to celebrate. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If there’s a thriller to be forged out of the bureaucracy of international travel regulations, Survivor is not it. Not even from the guy — James McTeigue — who brought us V for Vendetta.

Not even from Milla Jovovich (The Three Musketeers, Stone). She’s a badass security consultant — that’s a thing, it seems — riding a desk at the U.S. embassy in London, and she is on the lookout for suspicious physician and pharmaceutical types trying to travel to the United States, because bombs can be made from stuff you find in the Or . I’m sure that’s true… »

An Unleashed Jason Sudeikis Steals The Hilarious Sleeping With Other People

25 April 2015 1:07 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The transition from the small to the big screen is a tricky one to master. Some personalities are brimming with so much energy, talent and charisma that they can.t help but ascend to celluloid while others struggle to find their voice in their new medium and slowly decline into obscurity. Saturday Night Live alumni Jason Sudeikis is somewhere in between. Sudeikis. rise from scene-stealing support in Semi-Pro and The Campaign to credible leading man in Hall Pass, Horrible Bosses and We.re The Millers has been impressive. But he hasn.t looked entirely at home in these parts, and some of his performances have felt a tad forced, which has slightly hindered his comedic efforts. But things appear to be changing for Sudeikis. Over the last year, he has looked to move into more independent and character-driven fare with the likes of Drinking Buddies, Tumbledown and Sleeping With Other »

Interview: Hitting the Links with the Collaborators of ‘The Squeeze’

20 April 2015 8:16 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Golf and gambling go together like the 19th hole and tall tales. The green grass of the course isn’t the same without a little wagering, and the new film ‘The Squeeze’ – written and directed by Terry Jastrow – follows the game from small town America to the big stage of Las Vegas.

The film boasts an all-star cast, and is co-produced by Oscar nominee Anne Archer. The excellent character actor Michael Nouri, the steady Christopher McDonald and the very funny Katherine Lanasa are joining forces with newcomers Jeremy Sumpter and Jillian Murray. The odyssey of a young hot prospect and two gambling legends – based on a true story – are teed up to create a viable comedy about colorful characters, the essence of the links and who-will-outdo-who on the fairway and in the rough of life.
