“Loving” announces itself as an awards player with a great Trailer

18 July 2016 12:05 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Last week, we got two big Oscar friendly Trailers. The one I’m going to be talking about today is Loving, coming to us from filmmaker Jeff Nichols. He’s a writer/director who has been growing in stature the last few years, though this is his first overt play at awards. From the look of Loving, it’s a true life civil rights drama/biopic that should have real appeal across the board, and undoubtedly will be of interest to the Academy and its voters. Reviews were very strong out of the Cannes Film Festival and this Trailer debut was excellent as well. You’ll see it below, but first…let’s discuss it a bit. The film is a biopic of the Loving family, Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred (Ruth Negga). An interracial couple living in the south in the 1950’s, they run into even more bigotry when they decide to get married. »

Jeff Nichols' Loving: First Trailer Pits Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga Against Racism

12 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Filmmaker Jeff Nichols has distinguished himself with finely-wrought, outstanding dramas (Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special) that develop in unexpected ways. His newest film, Loving, debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May and is heading for theatrical release on November 4. Our own Jason Gorber saw the film at Cannes and noted in his review: With Loving, Nichols has dialed the intensity down to a slow, quiet burn, making his gifts as a filmmaker even more acute. The story of a couple in Virginia who committed the crime of falling in love despite their different racial backgrounds is told as quietly as a murmur, as powerful and lyrically as an epic poem. It's a film whose tonality matches the affections of its leads,...

Jeff Nichols Joins Oscar Race With ‘Loving’

12 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Although few have seen this year’s buzziest films, Oscar season is entering its speculation phase: Which movies look like they could take home the gold? As trailers come out of the woodwork and studios strategically rearrange their films’ release dates, prognosticators and movie buffs begin to read the signs with growing anticipation.... Consider the new trailer for “Loving” Oscar’s newest contender. Acclaimed writer-director Jeff Nichols (“Mud”) turns his eye on Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia, a landmark for the civil rights movement. Richard and Mildred Loving, a white man and black woman, married in Virginia and spent nine years embroiled in a fight to live as a family. As portrayed by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga in this Cannes favorite, the interracial couple’s story is a stirring testament to true love and unflinching courage. Will Nichols, Edgerton, or Negga have a shot at an Academy Award? »

Love Finds Justice In First Trailer For Jeff Nichols’ ‘Loving’ With Joel Edgerton & Ruth Negga

12 July 2016 8:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director Jeff Nichols has shown amazing versatility in his career thus far. “Shotgun Stories” with Michael Shannon was a micro indie, “Take Shelter” was a psychological thriller with apocalyptic notions, his first big-budgeted movie, “Mud” was “Stand By Me”-ish and “Midnight Special” was a John Carpenter-esque thriller and chase film about a boy with superhuman […]

First Trailer for Jeff Nichols’ ‘Loving’ Starring Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton

12 July 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following up one of the year’s best films, Jeff Nichols‘ second picture of 2016, Loving, marks his first time taking on a real-life story: interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga, respectively), whose civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court. The first trailer has landed today ahead of a fall release by Focus Features.

We said in our review from the Cannes Film Festival, “Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton deliver remarkably nuanced performances in Loving, a late-’50s- / early-‘60s-set true life story of a mixed-race couple whose illegal marriage became a landmark case in the United States Supreme Court. Having tried his hand at the coming-of-age drama (Mud) and both small- and large-scale science fiction (Take Shelter and Midnight Special, respectfully), the increasingly prolific Jeff Nichols branches out once more here to the awards season period drama.

Watch: Loving Trailer Depicts Quiet Struggle to Legalize Interracial Marriage

12 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In 1958, Richard Loving and Mildred Jeter did what two people who wanted to build a life together might be expected to do: they got married. But because he was white and she was black, their marriage, performed in Washington, D.C., wasn't valid in the state of Virginia, where they lived. Nine years later, their case would go all the way to the Supreme Court in Loving v. Virginia, which struck down anti-miscegenation laws across the country, enshrining a landmark victory for the civil rights movement.

Ruth Negga on ‘Finally Identifying with Female Protagonists’ in ‘Preacher’ & ‘Loving’

3 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ruth Negga is having a moment.

In less than one week, the relatively unknown talent broke out in a big way with the Cannes premiere of “Loving” (on May 16) and the debut of AMC’s “Preacher” (on May 22). One role called for a subtle, subdued portrayal of a woman dealing with Southern, ’60s racial bias when she decides to marry the (white) love of her life. The other finds her cracking skulls and seducing a preacher as Tulip tries to fight for something real.

The roles couldn’t demand emotions, attitudes and mannerisms from further ends of her acting spectrum, and yet Negga is earning praise for both. “Loving” and “Preacher” showcased her range with a one-two punch for the ages. There’s already Oscar buzz swirling around “Loving,” and “Preacher” recently earned a Season 2 pickup after wide critical praise.

Unused Apocalypse concept art from X-Men: Apocalypse

2 July 2016 3:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks ago we brought you some comic book faithful concept art for Apocalypse from this year’s X-Men: Apocalypse [see here], and now we have a look at some more unused designs for Oscar Isaac’s villain, with Jared Krichevsky sharing the following artwork to Twitter showing En Sabah Nur with and without a space helmet…

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-men: Apocalypse. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. »

One Perfect Place to Put the Camera: Dp Adam Stone on Midnight Special

30 June 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

In the summer of 2005, with roughly $50,000 scraped together from friends and family, Jeff Nichols made his directorial debut Shotgun Stories not far from where he grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas. Two things haven’t changed since – Michael Shannon has been in front of the camera for every Nichols movie and cinematographer Adam Stone has been behind it. That includes Take Shelter, Mud, and now Midnight Special, which elevates Nichols to the studio realm with a tale of a father (Shannon) and his “special” son (Jaeden Lieberher) on the run from the government and a religious cult with […] »

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: Why ‘Finding Dory’ Sequel Drowned ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’

26 June 2016 3:42 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Like the rest of the summer, it’s a mixed bag.

The good news: this weekend’s top two films, one opener and one holdover, grossed nearly $115 million. That’s better than the top two last year (holdovers “Jurassic World” and “Inside Out”).

The bad news: while “Finding Dory” is a huge success, “Independence Day: Resurgence” is a dud that will likely fall like a rock from its underwhelming opening.

Buddy comedy “Central Intelligence” enjoyed a strong second weekend, and low-budget horror flick “The Shallows” scored a better-than-expected opening, buoyed by rave reviews. But Stx’s risky opening strategy failed for Gary Ross’s historic epic “Free State of Jones,” starring Matthew McConaughey. Another national release in under 800 theaters bombed. “The Neon Demon” and its sub-$1 million haul is covered in Arthouse Audit. (This week’s box office preview is here; last weekend’s Top 10 Box Office Takeaways is here. »

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 […]

Embrace of the Serpent (Ciro Guerra)

With its focus on the effects of exploration by white men on foreign lands, Ciro Guerra’s Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent will inevitably be compared to Werner Herzog’s stories of savage nature, and while Guerra is investigating some of Herzog’s most well trodden themes, the chaos of man exists in the background, while the unspoiled sit front and center here. Embrace of the Serpent centers on two explorers, separated by decades in time, »

X-Men: Apocalypse crosses $500 million at the worldwide box office

19 June 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may not have set the domestic box office alight, with just $146.1 million to date, but thanks to strong international performance X-Men: Apocalypse has now crossed the $500 million mark worldwide, becoming only the third X-Men movie to do so.

The Bryan Singer-directed sequel pushed its cumulative gross to $510.1 million this weekend, with 72% of that figure coming from the international markets. However, it remains some distance behind franchise leader Deadpool, which has earned $780.5 million this year, along with Singer’s previous offering X-Men: Days of Future Past, which grossed $747.9 million back in 2014.
