Michael Abbott Jr in Official Trailer for Indie Film 'In the Radiant City'

23 July 2017 1:19 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's no such thing as evil, son. There's just people doing good and bad to each other." The Orchard has debuted a trailer for indie drama In the Radiant City, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The film is the feature directorial debut of Kentucky native Rachel Lambert, and it's set in Kentucky, about a man who returns home only to find his family is still haunted by the stigma of a murder his brother committed years ago. The cast includes Michael Abbott Jr in the lead role, along with Marin Ireland, Madisen Beaty, Celia Weston, Jon Michael Hill, Deirdre O'Connell, and Paul Sparks. This film is produced by fellow filmmaker Jeff Nichols, and it also has one of the best posters this year (as seen below). Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Rachel Lambert's In the Radiant City, direct from YouTube: A man (Michael Abbott Jr., »

New to Streaming: ‘Punch-Drunk Love,’ ‘Free Fire,’ ‘The Salesman,’ and More

7 July 2017 5:01 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 platforms. 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, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Best in Show (Christopher Guest)

Christopher Guest has had an exceptionally strong ’00s with A Mighty Wind and For Your Consideration, and it remains to be seen how his upcoming Mascots will be received, but his arguable peak is still the gloriously funny mockumentary Best in Show. Guest’s other films have lovingly skewered egotistical oddballs and the insanity of subjective or objective criticism, so Best in Show is »

Win Loving on DVD

19 June 2017 2:58 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Competitions

To mark the release of Loving on 12th June, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Loving is the new film from acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special). Richard and Mildred Loving (portrayed in the film by Golden Globe® nominees Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), fell in love and were married in 1958. The couple had grown up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C. While relatives made them feel welcome there, the more urban environment did not feel like home to them. Ultimately, the pull of their roots in Virginia »

Movie Review – Detour (2016)

24 May 2017 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Detour, 2016.

Directed by Christopher Smith.

Starring Tye Sheridan, Bel Powley, Emory Cohen, John Lynch and Stephen Moyer.

Synopsis:

Law student Harper’s mother is in hospital in a coma and he blames his stepfather, Vincent.  He’s not coping well with the situation, seeking consolation in drink.  After one especially heavy night, he awakes to find local bad boy, Johnny, on his doorstep. Apparently, the night before, Harper employed him to kill Vincent.  It means a trip to Vegas, where his step father has gone “on business”.  And, despite Harper’s efforts to get out of the deal, Johnny isn’t taking no for an answer.

British director, Christopher Smith, has done something of a volte face.  His previous film was seasonal comedy Get Santa in 2014, complete with Jim Broadbent, Rafe Spall and Warwick Davis as the proverbial Christmas elf.  Detour is a million dusty miles away from that.

The Future of Cannes: A Brief Look at Critics' Week

17 May 2017 6:06 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Los perros, premiering in Critics' Week this year, is the second feature film by Marcela Said.When this year’s Cannes slate was announced, an absence that many immediately noted in the competition slate was that of Claire Denis’ latest project: Un beau soleil intérieur, an adaptation of Roland Barthes's 1977 text A Lover's Discourse: Fragments. Leaving aside why her last feature, Bastards, was shunted to the Un Certain Regard section in 2013, the fact that one of the world’s greatest living filmmakers was again denied a competition slot was baffling, to say the least. Except that the film will be at Cannes, premiering alongside new films by Philippe Garrel, Bruno Dumont, and Abel Ferrara no less; it just won’t be in what’s known as the Official Selection. Specifically, Denis will be opening the Director’s Fortnight (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs), a separate, parallel festival completely independent from what »

Watch Reese Witherspoon's Big Return to Rom-Coms In First 'Home Again' Trailer

15 May 2017 3:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Back in 1991, a young Reese Witherspoon made a remarkably assured dramatic debut in the nostalgic The Man in the Moon. She made a memorable mark in Alexander Payne's Election, but she really broke into the mainstream with her bright and sunny performance as Elle Woods in the broad comedy Legally Blonde. A few years later, she earned an Academy Award for her sterling performance in Walk the Line and since then has continued to impress with her dramatic abilities in movies like Mud and, especially Wild, the latter of which earned her another Oscar nomination. Recently she again turned heads as part of the talented ensemble cast in HBO's Big Little Lies. Having all those roles in mind, the first trailer for the romantic comedy Home Again almost feels like a cold splash of...

Goldie Hawn Is Busier Than Ever With Her Foundation

4 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There has been a 15-year gap between Goldie Hawn’s movies, but she has been busy during that time with her writing and her foundation.

After the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, Hawn says she set up the Hawn Foundation to help children be more resilient and deal with a changed future.

“Some of them will be the leaders of our country, that’s why I created the foundation,” she says. “I would say for the love of children.”

Michael Shannon Frontrunner to Play Cable in ‘Deadpool 2’

22 March 2017 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Shannon is the frontrunner to play Cable in “Deadpool 2.”

While no deal is yet in place, Shannon has been the top choice for about a week. Fox, the studio handling the film, had no comment on the news.

The debut date for Ryan Reynolds’ “Deadpool 2” is in a year’s time — March 2, 2018. “John Wick” director David Leitch came on board to direct “Deadpool 2” last fall after Tim Miller dropped out due to creative differences with Reynolds.

‘Loving’ Director Jeff Nichols Launches Arkansas Cinema Society, With a Festival in 2018 — Exclusive

22 March 2017 8:53 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Inspired by Richard Linklater’s work for the last 32 years with the Austin Film Society, writer-director Jeff Nichols (“Loving,” “Midnight Special”) wants to build a cinephile organization in Arkansas that is just as impressive.

“Little Rock and Arkansas don’t have anything like that,” he said. “One of my biggest hurdles as a kid in Arkansas was I just didn’t have any connection points with the global film industry.”

Eventually, Nichols found people in his life who helped him to see that “real people do make movies and it’s possible.” Now having achieved some success, he seeks to “create a cinema society that gets people together to watch movies and filmmakers they may not know about, to not only bring films but filmmakers to Arkansas, to have conversations people can see in front of them in a way that’s immediate and tangible.”

Somethin’ Your Daddy Never Did: Jeff Nichols’ ‘Mud,’ Love, and Manhood

17 March 2017 5:02 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

An Fsr/Ops original video essay.~

Jeff NicholsMud tells of a lost soul (Matthew McConaughey) returned to the small river community that raised him for the dual purpose of evading the law and reuniting with an old love. It also tells of a young boy (Tye Sheridan) who over the course of the film and the perils he encounters — both physically and emotionally — learns how to be a man. It is a film of fathers and sons, real and metaphorical, and ultimately it is a story about love.

In my latest video essay, I explore the connection between the film’s various father figures and their influence and impact on a young man’s coming-of-age.

Stars Michael Fassbender, Rooney Mara and Ryan Gosling were all on hand to introduce their new film Song to Song as it kicked off the film portion of the annual SXSW Conference & Festivals at the historic Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas, on Friday.

Taking their seats among the sold-out crowd were festival supporters including directors Richard Linklater and Jeff Nichols and Mud actor Tye Sheridan. Noticeably absent from the festivities were co-star Natalie Portman — who just gave birth to a daughter on Feb. 22 — and the film’s reclusive director, Terrence Malick.

Texas Film Awards Salute Lone Star Filmmakers

9 March 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On the eve of SXSW’s opening night, the Austin Film Society will present its 17th annual Texas Film Awards, which spotlights the org’s programs and honors a group of stalwart Texan filmmakers. But this year’s event will also look forward to the completion of an initiative first announced at last year’s ceremony, as the Austin Film Society prepares to open its own dedicated, full-time two-screen cinema later in the spring.

For Richard Linklater, who founded the Afs 32 years ago, the cinema will be the culmination of years of planning and fundraising, and will allow the society — whose programs encompass everything from artist services to grants, education programs, an ongoing screening series, and a home on Austin’s public access TV station — to have a real public-facing hub.

“It was just a great leap that we had to make,” Linklater says. “We do that about every 10 years, »

Glasgow Frightfest 2017: Chris Smith Interview

20 February 2017 8:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Ahead of the UK premiere of his latest film Detour at Horror Channel FrightFest Glasgow, Chris Smith tells us the importance of FrightFest, his love of ‘film Noir’ and  his hatred of reality TV…

FrightFest has premiered all your genre movies Creep, Severance, Triangle, Black Death, except Get Santa obviously. Is this positioning an important part of the rollout process for you?

Firstly let me apologise for being away for so long and thank you for having me back. I wrote Get Santa because I’d just had a son and was feeling like I wanted to do something that he could watch in the next 15 years. I expected the film to take a year to come together but it ended up taking four years. My son was by that time old enough to come to the premiere with a few of his class mates.

Back to the question, Frightfest is extremely important, »

Berlinale: Ad Vitam to Produce Bruni Tedeschi Pic, Acquires Lelio’s ‘Fantastic Woman’ (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin– Ad Vitam, one of France’s leading independent distribution companies, is set to produce Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s “Les estivants,” the actress-turned-director’s follow-up to “A Castle in Italy” (pictured above) which competed at Cannes

Launched in 1998 by Gregory Gajos, Arthur Hallereau and Alexandra Henochsberg, Ad Vitam has been raising its profile and scope lately with the launch of sales outfit Alma Cinema in partnership with Charles Gillibert’s production company CG Cinema (“Mustang,” “Personal Shopper”).

Although Ad Vitam is usually mainly involved in distribution and co-production, it boarded Tedeschi’s project as a full-on producer because of Henochsberg’s close relationship with Tedeschi. A popular actress in Europe, Tedeschi recently starred in Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” which played at Directors’ Fortnight in cannes, and Bruno Dumont’s “Slack Bay,” a competition entry at Cannes in 2016.

Budgeted at 6 million euros ($6.8 million), “Les estivants” was written by Bruni Tedeschi »

Recommended Discs & Deals: ‘Cameraperson,’ ‘Loving,’ ‘The Lobster,’ and More

7 February 2017 1:06 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

Cameraperson (Kirsten Johnson)

A travelogue through one artist’s subconscious, Cameraperson is perhaps the most plural film of 2016 – a formal, tonal, situational, and pacing exercise that lulls viewers into thinking it’s set on one thing before turning towards seemingly new territory. And it never feels out-of-balance because director Kirsten Johnson has, by building this film around moments that “marked” her, granted such an intimate experience that it almost feels wrong to intellectualize much of anything that’s going on here, »
