Margot Robbie Says She Always Dresses Up as a 'Guy Character' for Halloween

10 October 2017 2:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Margot Robbie is known for making captivating transformations for her films — think Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad and her unrecognizable metamorphosis into Queen Elizabeth I for her upcoming film Mary Queen of  Scots — so it’s no surprise that the actress is no different when it comes to Halloween. Robbie admitted that she’s never been into sexy costumes and that she prefers to get creative by dressing up as male characters.

“Every Halloween I dress as a guy character because they are always the most fun. From day one, I never got the Halloween slutty costumes,” she told W »

29 September 2017 6:05 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.

From Falling Asleep During a Sex Scene to Unexpected Fatherhood: Highlights from Gucci Mane's Memoir

19 September 2017 7:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In his new book, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, the southern rapper proves he has just as many dramatic life experiences as he does tattoos. Gucci Mane‘s story, written with Neil Martinez-Belkin, is one of reinvention.

Beyond his highly publicized murder charge (Mane maintains he shot in self-defense; the charge was later dropped), the newly released book dives into his childhood (he started selling drugs in the eighth grade), his own drug use, multiple arrests (some for assault, others for drug and weapon possession) and feuds with other rappers like Jeezy.

It all changed during his most recent stint in prison. »

We’d already heard that Timothee Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Elle Fanning (The Neon Demon), Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers) and Jude Law (The Young Pope) will be appearing in Woody Allen’s next film, and now comes word of the rest of the cast for the as-yet-untitled project.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the project will reunite Allen with Amazon Studios, who recently released his film Cafe Society, as well as producing his TV debut Crisis in Six Scenes. Allen’s next film Wonder Wheel – starring Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Juno Temple and James Belushi – is set to premiere at the New York Film Festival next month. »

10 Actors Who Could Play The Joker In the Upcoming Origin Movie

29 August 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe takes a look at ten actors who could play the Clown Prince of Crime in the upcoming Joker origin movie…

News broke last week that The Hangover director Todd Phillips would be directing a Joker origin movie, produced by Martin Scorsese and not taking place inside the Dceu. The news has been met with a cautious optimism, as despite the talent involved in the film, fans are finding it difficult to shake the image of Jared Leto’s Joker from last year’s Suicide Squad movie. 

The good news, though, is that Leto will not be involved with the movie and that the role will be recast yet again for the movie. Taking on the role of The Joker is no easy task however and getting the casting correct will be key here. Here is a look at ten actors who could take on the iconic role.

Film Review: ‘Going to Brazil’

11 August 2017 10:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actor-turned-director Patrick Mille’s “Going to Brazil” basically takes the “Spring Breakers” conceit and adds a dash of “The Hangover,” as four vacant hotties blunder into criminal peril while on vacation. But while “Spring Breakers” without James Franco was a dire prospect, “Going to Brazil” delivers a slicker, livelier, less repetitious dose of trashy fun. If it doesn’t have anything as out-there or memorable as Franco’s performance, it also has nothing in the torture-chamber realm of constantly hearing the voiceover narration of barely legal ditzbags whining, “It wasn’t supposed to be like this!!”

While to an extent “Brazil” channels a familiar genre-pic xenophobia — go abroad and life is suddenly fraught with drugs, guns and gangsters — it’s snarkily pessimistic about the motherland as well. Our 30-ish heroines are hardly innocents: Restaurant cook Chloe (Margot Bancilhon) resentfully leaps from one fast-ditching boyfriend to the next; the indeterminately employed Lily (Philippine Stindel) has world-class anger issues »

The 20 Best Crime Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Memento’ to ‘Zodiac’

11 August 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No genre illustrates the evolution of cinema better than the crime film. As recently as the ’90s, Hollywood regularly released stories of cops-and-robber showdowns and mystery-thrillers based on best-selling novels — but as the middle class continues to disappear from Hollywood films, smart crime stories moved to television (see: “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “Breaking Bad,” “The Night Of,” et. al.).

Outside the studios, there is a longstanding tradition – from the B-movies to the Coen brothers – of new directors showcasing their filmmaking chops with dark, stylish, and intense crime sagas. A surge of new filmmakers in the ’90s brought fresh interpretations to the genre, from the pastiche of “Reservoir Dogs” to the unnerving realism in “Boyz n the Hood.”

Newswire: Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez join the cast of Woody Allen’s latest movie

8 August 2017 8:48 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Woody Allen has found his latest infusion of life-giving young people blood to perk up his cinematic forays, with Variety reporting that Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez, and Timothée Chalamet have all signed on for the director’s next film with Amazon. Everything about the film—the follow-up to Café Society and the upcoming Wonder Wheel—is being kept under wraps, including the name, but we can assume that either or both of Fanning or Gomez will inevitably find themselves drawn to some sort of older male figure, presumably with an interest in the clarinet.

Gomez, a former Disney star, has spent the last few years splitting the difference between kiddie films and more outrageous fare, dipping in between stuff like the Hotel Transylvania franchise and Spring Breakers or Neighbors 2. Fanning, meanwhile, just finished turns for Sofia Coppola and Nicolas Winding Refn, in The Beguiled and The Neon Demon »

Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez Team for New Woody Allen Movie

8 August 2017 3:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Woody Allen officially revealed the cast of his new untitled feature film starring Timoth&#233e Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Elle Fanning (The Beguiled), and Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers). The film has already secured theatrical distribution through Amazon Studios. No production schedule or release date have been given for this new project. This will be the director's fourth time working with Amazon Studios since 2016.

Last year marked Allen's first collaboration with Amazon Studios, which acquired and released Caf&#233 Society, which starred Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Corey Stoll and Anna Camp. Amazon Studios financed and distributed the filmmaker's first foray into television, Crisis in Six Scenes, which the filmmaker also starred in alongside Miley Cyrus, Elaine May, Rachel Brosnahan, John Magaro, Lewis Black, Max Casella and Joy Behar. The filmmaker's third collaboration with Amazon Studios is his latest feature film, Wonder Wheel

Woody Allen's next film starts casting

8 August 2017 3:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tony Sokol Aug 9, 2017

Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez will bring new blood to Woody Allen’s untitled next film.

Woody Allen has cast Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez in his next feature film. As is usually the case with Allen's projects, the new movie is thus far unnamed.

His latest project will be distributed in cinemas by Amazon’s television and motion picture production arm. This will be the third project Allen directs for Amazon Studios, which produced Cafe Society and the upcoming Wonder Wheel. Amazon also produced Allen’s television directorial debut, Crisis In Six Scenes.

Chalamet is intriguing casting, already starring in Call My By Your Name, which hits cinemas in the Us this autumn, and is already generating Academy Awards talk. Fanning starred in Nicolas Wind Refn’s conspiracy of fame hallucination The Neon Demon, and had a key featured part in Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled. »

Selena Gomez Rounds Out Cast For Woody Allen’s Next Movie

8 August 2017 1:37 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Woody Allen famously never watches his movies until after he’s finished editing them, and it’s probably safe to say that his upcoming “Wonder Wheel” is in the can. So as that film gears up for its World Premiere at the New York Film Festival this fall, the director is turning his attention to his next movie.

Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez, Timothée Chalamet to Star in Woody Allen Film

8 August 2017 12:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez will bring a youthful glimmer to Woody Allen’s next feature film. The still untitled project will be the third film that Allen, our preeminent chronicler of on-screen neurosis, directs for Amazon Studios. The company previously worked with Allen on “Cafe Society” and the upcoming “Wonder Wheel.” It also distributed the filmmaker’s first foray into television, “Crisis in Six Scenes,” a diversion into the small screen world that was not well received by critics.

Chalamet is earning raves and Oscar buzz for his star turn in “Call My By Your Name,” which hits theaters next fall. Fanning recently had a key supporting role in “The Beguiled” and starred in Nicolas Wind Refn’s horror film “The Neon Demon.” Gomez is a former Disney Channel star who also appeared in “Spring Breakers” — a film that nuked her squeaky clean image.

The Top 12 Composers of the 21st Century, From Hans Zimmer to Nick Cave

7 August 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In an age where special effects reign supreme, there’s one aspect of the filmmaking process that hasn’t gone through a radical transformation — music. Some of the best movies in any given year would be sorely lacking without their memorable scores, and this has remained true well into the first two decades of the 21st century.

Film composers play an integral part in the filmmaking process, and there are a handful whose bodies of work stand out in recent years. Of course, this list of 12 major composers only begins to scratch the surface of the talent out there. There are plenty of other worthy contributors to the medium who didn’t make the cut — Danny Elfman and John Williams, we’re looking at you — but rest assured that this top dozen represent the cream of the crop.

James Franco is Making His First Coen Brothers Movie and Getting His Career Back on Track

8 July 2017 7:07 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s no secret James Franco is one of the most hate-him-or-love-him actors working in Hollywood. But even those who consider themselves fans don’t always show up to the countless indies he makes in any given year, from “Memoria” to “The Adderall Diaries,” “King Cobra” and directorial efforts “In Dubious Battle” and “The Sound and the Fury.” At this point there’s no denying Franco has talent, but he takes on so many middling projects and appears in what seems like everything to the point that it can be hard to remember why you loved him in the first place.

Fortunately, Franco looks like he’s ready to remind us why he belongs in the business. It’s happened before — his Oscar-nomianted lead performance in “127 Hours,” his go-for-broke turn in “Spring Breakers” and »

New to Streaming: ‘The Bad Batch,’ ‘Summer Hours,’ ‘Kong: Skull Island,’ ‘Paterson,’ and More

23 June 2017 5:31 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.

The Bad Batch (Ana Lily Amirpour)

Ana Lily Amirpour’s second feature shoots for Harmony Korine meets Mad Max and would have nearly almost hit the mark were it not for the gratingly aloof attitude and the swaths of directorial license being taken. The Bad Batch — an ambitious, expansive dystopian sci-fi western which features partying, drugs, and cannibals — might come as music to the ears of diehard fans of films like Spring Breakers and Gummo (a kid doesn’t quite eat spaghetti in a bathtub, but a kid does eat spaghetti after being in a bathtub). However, beneath its dazzlingly hip surface the script and characters leave much to be desired. It’s like taking a trip to Burning Man: a pseudo-spiritual, uniquely punky experience perhaps, but one that’s full of annoying rich kids and ultimately emotionally shallow. – Rory O. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon, iTunes

Kong: Skull Island (Jordan Vogt-Roberts)

Though it may not feel fully inspired so much as competently pre-visualized, Kong: Skull Island fits snugly into the growing canon of reboots that exist within ever-expanding movie universes. That’s a first sentence to a positive review that perhaps reads a bit more cynically than intended. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and written by a bunch of dudes (Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly with a story credited to John Gatins), this umpteenth version of the King Kong story pulls from every available pop-culture source in building a fun creature feature. Much of the credit goes to the breathtaking effects and brisk pace, which distract from some lofty line readings and silly plot devices. – Dan M. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon, iTunes, Google

Le Trou (Jacques Becker)

One of the greatest prison escape dramas of all-time, Jacques Becker’s recently-restored Le Trou is a masterclass in tension. By putting us both in the physical and psychological headspace of our protagonists, it’s an enveloping experience as we see a number of close calls, leading up to one of the most unforgettable endings in cinema. – Jordan r.

Where to Stream: Mubi (free 30-day trial)

Moana (John Musker and Ron Clements)

It’s time for another Disney Princess movie, and you know how it goes. Disney knows too, and wants you to know that it knows. When the title character of Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) denies that she’s a princess, claiming that she’s merely the daughter of her island’s chief and the next chieftain, her adventuring partner Maui (Dwayne Johnson) asserts, “Same difference,” and that, “You wear a dress and have an animal sidekick. You’re a princess.” But Disney is doing its best to make the culture rethink cinematic fantasy princesses, countering the stereotypes of helpless femininity (which the studio largely put in place) with a new roster of highly capable action heroines. And Moana is, as they call it, a good role model. And the movie around her is fine. – Dan S. (full review)

Where to Stream: Netflix

Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press (Brian Knappenberger)

Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press uses a salacious story and website as the launching pad to discuss where we currently are, so much so that I imagine director Brian Knappenberger — who uses footage from President Trump’s infamous press conference only a few days before the film’s Sundance premiere — may wish to stay on the story. Gawker, a site spun out of Gizmodo, was founded to share the types of stories mainstream news outlets would often shy away from, including celebrity sex tapes, outings, drug use, and allegations that have swirled but not picked up traction. They’ve featured Rob Ford smoking crack, Bill Cosby’s multiple accusers, Hillary Clinton’s emails, Tom Cruise’s prominent role in Scientology, and the one that brought them down: the infamous Hulk Hogan sex tape recorded for private use by Hogan pal and infamous Tampa shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge Clem, best known nationally for his stint on Howard Stern’s satellite channel. Bubba’s antics will no doubt some day be the subject of a documentary of their own, from his role in both the Hogan affair to his odd appearance in the David Petraeus saga. – John F. (full review)

Where to Stream: Netflix

Paterson (Jim Jarmusch)

Jim Jarmusch proved he was back in a major way with Only Lovers Left Alive a few years ago, and the streak continues with Paterson, a calm, introspective drama with such positive views on marriage and creativity that I was left floored. In following the cyclical life of Adam Driver‘s Paterson, a bus driver in Paterson, New Jersey, who also has dreams of being a poet, Jarmusch superbly shows that one’s own life experience — however seemingly insubstantial — is the only requirement to produce something beautiful. Moreso than any other film in 2016, this is the kind of world I want to live in. – Jordan R.

Where to Stream: Amazon Prime

Star Trek Beyond (Justin Lin)

After the pleasant fluff of its kick-off installment and the frog march of unpleasantness that was Into Darkness, the rebooted Star Trek film series finally hits a fun median between big-budget bombast and classic Trek bigheartedness with Star Trek Beyond. Does the franchise’s full descent into action, with only the barest lip service paid to big ideas, cause Gene Roddenberry’s ashes to spin in their space capsule? Probably, but in the barren desert of summer 2016 blockbusters, this is a lovely oasis. – Dan S. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon Prime

Summer Hours (Olivier Assayas)

Perhaps a point of contention on New York Times’ top 25 films of the 21st century list, Olivier AssayasSummer Hours is a commendable top 10 pick. Led by Juliette Binoche, Charles Berling, Jérémie Renier, and Kyle Eastwood, this drama follows a family reuniting following the death of their mother. Like the best of Assayas’ films, it’s an impeccably-crafted, subtly-moving experience, one that wades in the ideas of the value of what we hold on to and a graceful reflection on the passage of time. – Jordan R.

Where to Stream: FilmStruck

Wilson (Craig Johnson)

The world of Daniel Clowes is one without manners, glamour, and tact, but it is also one of uncomfortable truth, as scathing as it might be. One may have never verbally conveyed the discourteous musings of his characters to the extent to which it is their everyday vernacular, but we’ve all had similar thoughts when life isn’t going our way. The latest adaptation of his work comes with Wilson, directed by Craig Johnson (The Skeleton Twins), featuring a role Woody Harrelson is clearly having the time of his life with. Despite his commitment to a lack of civility, there’s a darker film lying in the cynical heart of Wilson, one that gets squandered by its mawkish aesthetic and lack of interest in exploring these characters beyond their crudeness. – Jordan R. (full review)

Where to Stream: Amazon, iTunes, Google

The Zookeeper’s Wife (Niki Caro)

The Zookeeper’s Wife begins with those five famous words that hold the power to either become a film’s dependency (and therefore downfall) or its empowering catalyst, laying the foundation to convey a poignant tale: “Based on a true story.” Fortunately, The Zookeeper’s Wife sticks with the latter, and the true tale being told is one for the ages. Niki Caro‘s drama follows a couple who hide Jews in their zoo and use it as a point of passage and escape during the Nazi takeover of Warsaw. The narrative is a simple one, allowing The Zookeeper’s Wife to shine in its performances, imagery, and storytelling, which it pristinely accomplishes. – Chelsey G. (full review)

Grappling With the Sincere Horrors of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ (Column)

19 June 2017 5:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The Handmaid’s Tale,” which aired its Season 1 finale June 14, is one of the best shows of the 2016-2017 season. It’s also one of the most challenging. The drama is beautifully lit and gorgeously directed, and the protagonist is performed with singular clarity by Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss. And yet there are times where the show is, for lack of a better word, basic — simplistic, in a way that seems out of pace with what the rest of the show is accomplishing.

The best example is in the fourth episode, “Nolite Te Bastardes Carbonundorum,” in which June, called Offred, discovers a pidgin Latin phrase used by her predecessor Handmaid. It prompts her to look back on her own identity as a Handmaid and reframe it. “We are Handmaids,” June muses to herself at the end of the episode, with a slight smile on her face. “Nolite te bastardes carbonundorum, bitches »

Selena Gomez Debuts ‘Bad Liar’ Music Video From Director Jesse Peretz
