Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes Show Rare Pda During Adorable Disneyland Date: Pics!

9 August 2017 10:19 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes look more in love than ever.

The couple was spotted at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, on Sunday night, holding hands at the happiest place on Earth. Gosling wore a hat and a blue sweater, while Mendes glowed in an off-the-shoulder black top and a Chicago Bulls hat. They were joined by another couple and two bodyguards, and rode the Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and It's a Small World amid other rides, and even shopped for a few souvenirs.

Check out Mendes' radiant smile.

It's safe to say Disneyland holds a special place in the couple's heart. News broke that 43-year-old Mendes and 36-year-old Gosling were dating when they were snapped holding hands at the amusement park back in September 2011, after starring together in The Place Beyond the Pines. The two also »

Exclusive: David Lowery talks the ghost in a sheet, the film’s secrecy and shooting the film during his Pete’s Dragon “vacation”

8 August 2017 6:09 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

After months of amazing word of mouth and a few awards, Sundance 2017 darling A Ghost Story finally makes its way to UK shores this weekend and we couldn’t recommend the film more – check out our glowing 5* review here – so we felt privileged and excited to sit down with its writer/director David Lowery to chat about his unforgettable film.

For those of you who don’t know much about the film, which stars Academy Award Winner Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) and Academy Award Nominee Rooney Mara (Song to Song), you should very much keep it that way for the less you know the better. As you may have guessed from the poster’s and trailers this is indeed about a ghost-in-a-sheet story but it is so much more than that but Lowery says the idea was, on paper at least, first mentioned as a little bit of a joke, »

Natalie Portman in talks to star as aspiring bull rider in Bronco Belle

7 August 2017 5:24 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Natalie Portman has entered into talks to play an aspiring bull rider in Bronco Belle, a tale doused in female empowerment from My Life as a Poppat scribe Khurram Longi.

Sony Pictures, TriStar are also in early talks to finance and distribute the project, which also has Anna Rose Holmer in talks to take the helm. Portman and Holmer have been attached to the picture since March, which looks set to go into production next year.

The story focuses on a waitress, Raylene Jackson, she dreams of becoming a champion steer rider with the help of an ornery veteran mentor. She is not welcomed as she infiltrates the male-dominated rodeo circuit, but the film takes on a Rocky-esque tone because even though she seems overmatched by the beasts she rides, but she keeps fighting for her dream, overcoming all hurdles placed in her way.

Broad Green shutters production department

2 August 2017 3:52 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Hammond brothers let go of approximately 20% of workforce.

Broad Green co-founders Gabriel and Daniel Hammond have closed their production department and laid off 15 of the 75-strong staff following a string of under-performing films.

Gabriel and Daniel Hammond, who serve as CEO and chief creative officer respectively, plan to reconfigure Broad Green’s operations and find a new way to source films.

The acquisitions team is expected to be on the ground in Toronto and other festivals, and the company has scheduled a November 22 release for Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones caper film Villa Capri.

Around 50 development projects have gone into turnaround. Gabriel Hammond, a former Wall Street wunderkind who along with his brother used their own money to fund Broad Green, confirmed the development on Wednesday in a remarkably frank interview with Deadline Hollywood in which he said the brothers accepted all blame for failure.

The news comes in the wake of the latest sub-par box office »

Broad Green: How Wall Street Wealth, A-List Talent, and Brash Decisions Made an Indie Player Implode

2 August 2017 2:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It takes guts to join the indie distribution fray, especially when the market is challenged by big buyers like Netflix and Amazon Studios (which, along with Annapurna, is optimistically taking over its own theatrical distribution) and television is chasing down the hottest indie talent. Even one-time high-flyer The Weinstein Co., which once knew better than anyone how to play the indie game, is evolving to survive during these changing times.

When Wall Street billionaires Gabriel Hammond, 38, and his brother, Daniel, 34, launched independent producer-distributor Broad Green Pictures three summers ago, Hollywood was skeptical. It was a strange time to reinvent a dying economic model.

Now, after trying to use arcane algorithms to determine what movies to make, Gabriel has decided to pull the plug on production. The breaking point was the July 14 release of John Leonetti’s “Wish Upon,” which grossed $13.2 million on a $12 million budget. (Theaters return about half of the take to the distributor, »

Terrence Malick-Produced ‘Awaken’ Trailer: Awe-Inspiring Doc Follows Humans’ Relationship With Technology — Watch

12 July 2017 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Terrence Malick is between projects at the moment, having released “Song to Song” earlier this year, but a new documentary he executive produced entitled “Awaken” just released its first trailer, and it looks as gorgeous and breathtaking as both “Voyage of Time” and “Tree of Life.”

Directed by award-winning cinematographer-turned-director Tom Lowe, whose debut film “TimeScapes” was a non-narrative doc comprised of gorgeous slow-motion and timelapse cinematography of landscapes, people, and wildlife, “Awaken” is epic in scale and brings “unseen sights and breathtaking perspectives to the human eye for the first time.” Here’s the official synopsis:

“Awaken” is a documentary film exploring humanity’s relationship with technology and with the natural world.  Shot over a five-year period in more than 30 countries, the film pioneers new timelapse, time-dilation, underwater, and aerial cinematography techniques to give »

New to Streaming: ‘Song to Song,’ ‘Personal Shopper,’ ‘The Lost City of Z,’ ‘Okja,’ and More

30 June 2017 5:05 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.

David Lynch: The Art Life (Jon Nguyen, Rick Barnes, and Olivia Neergaard-Holm)

Before David Lynch was a filmmaker, he was a struggling painter, whose lifeblood was to “drink coffee, smoke cigarettes, and paint.” That’s what he dubbed “the art life,” and what an image – as featured in the many contemporary photos seen in this new documentary – it is, the bequiffed 20-something Lynch sitting back in his Philadelphia studio, »

Oscars: 13 Deserving Contenders From 2017 So Far

22 June 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As we rapidly approach 2017’s midway point, there are already a number of films that deserve to be remembered by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences when Oscar ballots go out at the end of the year. Academy voters notoriously have short memories, though it’s hardly their fault alone; studios are so obsessed with back-loading the year with prestige product that in the rush, earlier gems are often forgotten.

So we’re here to help. Perhaps members will take a moment to bear these contenders in mind before the awards season glut finally hits.

Note: This list spotlights films theatrically released to the paying public. There have been festival standouts that won’t hit theaters until the coming months, and a number would bear mentioning. Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler are all fantastic in Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” for example. And David Lowery’s vision for “A Ghost Story” makes for one of the greatest motion pictures of the year. But we’ll stick to what will hit theaters as of June 30 for this piece’s purposes.

Oscars at the Halfway Mark: ‘Logan,’ ‘Get Out’ and Women Directors

***

Best Picture: “The Big Sick

Don’t dismiss it just because it’s the funniest movie of the year so far, it’s also the most heartfelt and intelligent. Willing to mix big issues with big laughs, the tone is held together perfectly by director Michael Showalter, the outstanding cast and an excellent script. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: “Baby Driver”; Get Out”; “Logan”; “Okja

Best Director: Bong Joon Ho (“Okja”)

Netflix’s Cannes entry is a whole lot of movie, and a whole lot of vision. Director Bong Joon Ho dazzles with his deft kinetic touch while also pulling an impressive performance out of young lead Seo-Hyun Ahn to anchor the zany satire. But as ever, Bong proves a master of balancing tonal shifts, ultimately crafting a moving piece of work. (KT)

– Other Standouts: Sofia Coppola (“The Beguiled”); Michael Showalter (“The Big Sick”); Jordan Peele (“Get Out”); Trey Edward Shults (“It Comes At Night”)

Best Actor: Sam Elliott (“The Hero”)

The role of an aging star who never realized his greatness fits Elliott like a glove. It’s also a reminder of how underutilized he has been on the big screen. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: Richard Gere (“Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer”); Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out”); James McAvoy (“Split”); Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick”)

Best Actress: Sally Hawkins (“Maudie”)

Hawkins is always excellent and reliable, but she outdoes herself portraying Canadian painter Maud Lewis. Crippled by arthritis, married to a rough fisherman (a great Ethan Hawke), Hawkins allows Maud’s joy to shine through. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: Jessica Chastain (“The Zookeeper’s Wife”); Anne Hathaway (“Colossal”); Salma Hayek (“Beatriz at Dinner”); Rachel Weisz (“My Cousin Rachel”)

Best Supporting Actor: Patrick Stewart (“Logan”)

Let’s be honest; take away the superhero element and this would be an Oscar slam-dunk. Stewart’s portrayal of Charles Xavier in waning health with a broken mind will break your heart. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: Sharlto Copley (“Free Fire”); Ethan Hawke (“Maudie”); LilRel Howery (“Get Out”); Ray Romano (“The Big Sick”)

Best Supporting Actress: Betty Gabriel (“Get Out”)

Jordan Peele’s impressive directorial debut deserves a shout-out in virtually every category, but hopefully no one snoozes on Betty Gabriel’s unsettling work as a housekeeper trapped in “the sunken place.” She etches that inner turmoil across her face with such aplomb you simply cannot look away. (KT)

– Other Standouts: Laura Dern (“Wilson”); Holly Hunter (“The Big Sick”); Dafne Keen (“Logan”); Terry Pheto (“A United Kingdom”)

Playback: Sam Elliott on ‘The Hero’ and Living His Childhood Dream

Best Screenplay: “Shimmer Lake

Technically ineligible for Oscars as it didn’t receive a theatrical run, that doesn’t stop this twisty thriller from earning our consideration. What sounds like a gimmick — a crime drama told backwards — proves absolutely essential to telling a fascinating story. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: “The Big Sick”; “Get Out”; “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore”; Split

Best Cinematography: “Kong: Skull Island

Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ simian sequel was a bit of a tonal omelette, but one element that gave it an unexpected level of iconography was Larry Fong’s striking photography. Sunburnt vistas and heat-rippled frames sometimes call back to “Apocalypse Now,” but more often they give the film its own intriguing visual identity. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Alien: Covenant”; “The Beguiled”; “The Lost City of Z”; “Song to Song

Best Costume Design: “Wonder Woman

Speaking of iconography, one of the eye-popping elements of Patty Jenkins’ landmark superhero entry is the iconic image actress Gal Gadot strikes as the eponymous Amazon. But beyond Diana Prince’s well-known threads, there’s a whole array of dazzling outfits on the screen, from the battle gear of Themyscira to 1920s fashion and World War I attire. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Beauty and the Beast”; “The Beguiled”; “The Great Wall”; “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Best Film Editing: “LA92”

Lest we forget, National Geographic’s Emmy-contending L.A riots documentary is also eligible for Oscar consideration this year. Last year “O.J.: Made in America” garnered some attention for its handling of tons of material, and hopefully reminded voters that documentary editing ought to be recognized. Reams of footage were assembled from countless sources to drive this particular version of the story, which was also covered elegantly by director John Ridley in “Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992.” (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Baby Driver”; “Get Out”; “Logan”; “Okja

The Big Sick’: How Kumail Nanjiani, Emily V. Gordon Brought Their Real-Life Love Story to Screen

Best Production Design: “Beauty and the Beast”

It’s a tall order to match the stunning animation of the original film, but the “Beauty and the Beast” team pulled it off. Every ornate touch, from the Beast’s castle to the world of Belle’s village, was a visual feast. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: “The Great Wall”; “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2”; “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”; “Wonder Woman

Best Sound Editing: “Baby Driver

Being something of a musical-slash-actioner, Edgar Wright’s latest owes everything to its soundtrack. But more than that, the precision with which sound is layered and cut to enhance the various tracks scattered throughout gives the film an innervating sense of propulsion. When there’s no sound, you’re desperate for it to scream back. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Free Fire”; “John Wick: Chapter Two”; “Okja”; “Transformers: The Last Knight

Best Visual Effects: “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2

It’s a pity we can’t throw “War for the Planet of the Apes” (July 14) in here, but more on that in due time. Marvel’s latest installment of the “Guardians” franchise doubles down on rendered environments. When you have a character who at times serves as the actual location (I guess you have to see the film to understand), the sky is the limit on VFX. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Beauty and the Beast”; “Ghost in the Shell”; The Great Wall”; “Okja

How a Chance Encounter With Terrence Malick Turned Trey Edward Shults Into a Filmmaker

When Trey Edward Shults was 18 years old, he went to Hawaii for the summer to stay with his aunt Krisha – yes, the same Krisha who starred in his 2016 breakout “Krisha.” His aunt was connected to small filmmaking community on the island and got her nephew jobs working on commercials and other productions.

“It was five guys with an IMAX camera,” said Shults. “I loved movies, but I didn’t know how they were made, really. I didn’t even get what the guy [the film loader] in the changing bag with the film was »

Great Job, Internet!: To The Wonder Woman reimagines the blockbuster as a dreamy Terrence Malick film

8 June 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Look, you don’t need us to tell you that Wonder Woman is a good movie (though we have, a few times, actually). Just look at its Rotten Tomatoes score, which sits at an admirable 93 percent. You know who might be jealous? Terrence Malick, whose last three (non-documentary) feature films—Song To Song, Knight Of Cups, and To The Wonder—average out at a tepid 45-percent approval rating.

So, should Malick maybe lend his inimitable style the superhero world? Hey, it’s not so far-fetched. Video artist Nelson Carvajal proves it with To The Wonder Woman, an impressive trailer that pairs the audio from To The Wonder with visuals from Wonder Woman:

By emphasizing Wonder Woman’s love story and scenic tableau over its action, the footage dovetails intriguingly with Javier Bardem’s solemn, starry-eyed monologue and Hanan Townshend’s stirring orchestral score.

Mostly, though, it serves as a ...

Holly Hunter and Carrie Coon Lead First Trailer for ‘Strange Weather’

7 June 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After making a brief impression in Terrence Malick’s Song to Song and following a part in this summer’s The Big Sick, Holly Hunter will take the lead in Strange Weather. The drama, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall, is directed by Katherine Dieckmann (who helmed the underrated Diggers) and follows a woman who searches for resolution after the death of her son.

Ahead of a late July release, the first trailer has now landed, which previews what looks to be a strong central performance from Hunter. While we missed it at Tiff last year, reactions seemed to be mostly strong, so we’re looking forward to checking it out. Also starring Carrie Coon, Kim Coates, and Glenne Headly, see the trailer below.

First Full Trailer for Alien Invasion Thriller 'Revolt' Featuring Lee Pace

3 June 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Must have some weakness, something we can use against them." A full-length trailer has been unveiled for an indie sci-fi project titled Revolt, from director Joe Miale making his feature debut. The film stars Lee Pace as a Us soldier in Africa attempting to fight back against a brutal alien invasion. This kind of seems a bit like a mash-up between District 9 and Transformers, with robot-like alien creatures taking over. Also with Bérénice Marlohe (who was also in the sci-fi Kill Switch, as well as Skyfall and Song to Song), plus Amy Louise Wilson, Alan Santini, and Tom Fairfoot. This has some solid VFX work and it seems like it could be a fun under-the-radar sci-fi film, I just hope it's better than it looks. This trailer is worth a watch.

The Edinburgh International Film Festival will open and close with British films “God’s Own Country” and “England Is Mine,”and show Netflix’s “Okja,” which recently caused a stir as an official selection in Cannes.

Disney’s “Cars 3” will have its U.K. premiere amid the festival’s 151 feature films, which include titles from U.S. independents and a documentary section.

Having focused on Finland and Mexico in recent years, the international spotlight falls on Poland this year and includes the international premiere of Katarzyna Adamik’s thriller “Amok.”

Paul Schrader Writes an Anatomical Review of Terrence Malick’s ‘Song to Song,’ and It Doesn’t Involve Thumbs

27 May 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Whether talking about his own work or that of other filmmakers, Paul Schrader has never been one to mince words. Last night, the critic-turned-filmmaker reminded everyone who follows him on Facebook of his critical bent by sharing a very brief, very negative review of Terrence Malick’s latest: “If you could photograph the unwanted urine which dribbles from an old man’s penis you would have a film titled Song to Song.”

The film — which stars Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman — takes place in and around the Austin music scene. Reviews were mixed, which is typical of recent Malick fare; IndieWire’s Eric Kohn wrote that “there’s plenty of intrigue to the dissonance of a hard-rock lifestyle and Malick’s gentle touch, but much of the movie’s potential »
