From Clueless to Pulp Fiction, 10 of the best and worst dates on film

8 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Seeing a movie is usually a pretty safe bet for a first date. But what about the people in the movie that are going on dates themselves? They’re either having the best date of their lives or the worst, so your own date will almost definitely lie somewhere in the middle.

This week, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates hits big screens, and Zac Efron and Adam DeVine get in over their heads with their own bad dates. Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza also star as the women that respond to an online ad looking for wedding dates. Needless to say, this movie looks like it will go down in the worst movie dates hall of fame. Check out the list below!

Good: Before Sunrise (1995)

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy partake in a feature-length first date in Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise. The two twenty-somethings, Jesse (Hawke) and Céline »

Exclusive: 'Everybody Wants Some!!' Cast Explains Their '80s Crash Education

30 June 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

For years Richard Linklater, the director of Boyhood and Before Midnight, has talked about wanting to make a sequel to one of his most beloved movies, 1993's Dazed and Confused. He wasn't talking about making a literal sequel with the same characters, though. Linklater instead wanted to make a spiritual sequel that would do for the '80s what Dazed and Confused did for the '70s. Everybody Wants Some!! is that movie. It's a comedy about...

‘Before’ Trilogy: Beautiful Video Shows Parallel Emotion From All Three of Linklater’s Films

28 June 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Cinematic trilogies tend to be epic in scope: “The Lord of the Rings,” “Star Wars,” “A Fistful of Dollars.” Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy — 1995’s “Before Sunrise,” 2004’s “Before Sunset” and 2013’s “Before Midnight” — is an exception to that and many other rules, not least because it was never actually intended as a trilogy. The films simply come about one every decade or so, each of them feeling organic and necessary rather than tacked-on additions to a once-perfect story. In a new video, the parallels among the three films are laid out simultaneously.

‘Everybody Wants Some!!’ Review

16 May 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Blake Jenner, Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman, Juston Street, Wyatt Russell, Glen Powell, Temple Baker, J. Quinton Johnson, Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch | Written and Directed by Richard Linklater

The career of Richard Linklater has been a rather fascinating rollercoaster off ups and downs, very much mostly ups, though the period between School of Rock and Before Midnight was not the best but after the high of the one/two punch of Before Midnight and Boyhood, the world was his oyster (well maybe up to a certain level of budget!) To go back to college with what has been termed a spiritual sequel to Dazed & Confused was a brave decision. Get it wrong and accusations of playing it safe or going back to the well would probably be heard by reactionary types across the Film Twitter-sphere. This is not the world of Celine & Jessie for damn sure and Patricia Arquette won »

Athina Rachel Tsangari is probably not a ubiquitous name just yet, though odds are she is on her way to being a staple of Greek cinema. As a producer, Tsangari has been involved in some of the most exciting movies from the country in recent years, including working on “Dogtooth” with Yorgos Lanthimos and “Before Midnight” with […]

Review: Linklater nails another anthropological comedy with 'Everybody Wants Some!!'

5 April 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If I had to estimate how many times I’ve seen Richard Linklater’s Dazed & Confused since it was released in 1993, I’d be willing to bet it’s over three dozen by now. I adore the film, and it’s one of those movies that has grown over time for me. The more I’ve gone back to it, the longer I’ve lived with it, the more I’ve found in it. That movie has a cast that was largely unknown at the time but that has gone on to look almost overstuffed with star power. It is a remarkable ensemble, and even the kids who didn’t go on to further work or bigger stardom did work that has aged beautifully. I never got around to seeing a trailer for this one. In fact, it almost feels like Paramount’s sneaking it out. It just premiered at SXSW, »

Richard Linklater continues to be one of the most exciting filmmakers in the business

29 March 2016 12:58 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It was just about two years ago when filmmaker Richard Linklater finally unveiled his long brewing passion project Boyhood to the world and finally became the awards magnet that many thought he would eventually turn into. The thing about Linklater is, no matter what he’s currently up to, he has something very different planned, so while Boyhood was a prestige outing, not far from the Before trilogy (Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight), what he has coming to us this week is a spiritual sequel to his stoner classic Dazed and Confused. Yes, I’m talking about Everybody Wants Some, though for this piece, I’m really just focusing on Linklater himself. He’s as fascinating a director as there is in the business, so it’s always a pleasure to look at his filmography and talents, no question there. I’m seeing Linklater’s new film Everybody Wants Some later on today, »

Ethan Hawke hits all the right notes in “Born to Be Blue”

24 March 2016 1:14 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

If you’re anything like me, you’re a pretty big fan of Ethan Hawke. Over the years, Hawke has been among the most consistent and interesting actors in Hollywood. He floats in and out of the studio system at ease, keeping a presence both in blockbusters occasionally as well as often in independent fare. It’s hard not to really admire the career of Hawke so far, and this Friday we have another outing of his to enjoy him in. This one is the musical biopic Born to Be Blue, which at one juncture was thought to be his ticket to another Academy Award nomination. This may or may not ultimately appeal to Oscar, but it’s one more reminder of just how great Hawke is, so now’s a great moment to appreciate him some more! The film is a biopic of sorts, focusing on the comeback that »

Julie Delpy: ‘I Don’t Want to Be in My Films Anymore, I’m Sick of Myself’

21 March 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For “Lolo,” her sixth film as director, Julie Delpy has created a dark comedy perfectly suited to her talents. The offbeat farce stars Danny Boon as Jean-Rene, a recently divorced father who falls for Violette (Delpy), a driven but neurotic producer in the fashion industry. The main problem is Violette’s 19-year-old son, the titular Lolo (Vincent Lacoste), a brilliant but disturbed youth who will go to great lengths to keep the couple apart.

The comedy is by turns sweet and vulgar, kept on track thanks to Delpy’s assured hand. A two-time Oscar nominee for co-scripting “Before Sunset” and “Before Midnight,” she also co-wrote the “Lolo” screenplay with Eugénie Grandval. The outspoken actress talked to Variety about making the film, working with actresses and how she’s not opposed to making special effects-driven blockbusters.

Congratulations on the film; I love movies about bad seed children.

It’s funny you »

SXSW Film Review: ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’

11 March 2016 6:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After the dramatic one-two punch of “Before Midnight” and “Boyhood,” a master of the modern hangout movie achieves his most sustained comic bliss-out in years with “Everybody Wants Some!!” Billed quite accurately as a “spiritual sequel” to 1993’s “Dazed and Confused,” Richard Linklater’s latest acutely funny, achingly perceptive retro-sociology lesson follows a team of ’80s college baseball players wasting a longish weekend together before the start of a new school year; many scenes of pot smoking, disco dancing, knuckle flicking, skirt chasing and other forms of competitive male sport (and some baseball here and there) predictably and hilariously ensue. Linklater indulges his characters’ antics with such wild, free-flowing affection that you might miss the thoughtful undertow of this delightful movie: Few filmmakers have so fully embraced the bittersweet joy of living in the moment — one that’s all the more glorious because it fades so soon.

Julie Delpy Developing Comedy Series With U.S. Streaming Service (Exclusive)

8 March 2016 9:41 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

While presenting her latest film “Lolo” at the New York Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, Julie Delpy spoke about “On The Verge,” a series she’s developing as a writer with a prominent U.S. streaming service.

Set in the U.S., the English-language comedy series will turn on a group of forty-something woman tackling singlehood and will depict their relationships with men. “We usually picture women in their forties at peace with themselves, but that’s not how they are in real life. I’d like to show them in a way that we haven’t seen them before — show how crude and crazy they can be when they talk about men, sex and relationships.”

The series, which is still at script stage, will mark Delpy’s first foray into TV drama.

In “Lolo,” in which she stars opposite Karin Viard and Dany Boon, Delpy also made a point to »

Altitude takes UK on Ira Sachs' 'Little Men'

13 February 2016 4:01 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Love Is Strange director reunites with UK distributor.

Altitude Film Distribution has acquired the UK distribution rights to Sundance drama Little Men.

The deal was negotiated between Altitude Film Entertainment’s Ellie Gibbons and Mongrel International’s Charlotte Mickie.

The acquisition is the second between Sachs and Altitude, having previously released the highly acclaimed Love is Strange.

Little Men follows Jake (Theo Taplitz), a quiet, sensitive middle schooler with dreams of being an artist. He meets the affably brash Tony (Michael Barbieri) at his grandfather’s funeral, and the unlikely pair soon hit it off.

The budding friendship is put at risk, however, when a rent dispute between Jake’s parents, Brian and Kathy (Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Ehle), and Tony’s mother, Leonor (Paulina Garcia), threatens to become contentious.

Sachs co-wrote the screenplay with Mauricio Zacharis (Love is Strange).

Producers are Lucas Joaquin (Beasts of the Southern Wild), Sachs, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos ([link »

Title: Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong Director: Emily Ting Starring: Jamie Chung, Bryan Greenberg, Sarah Lian, Jaden Cheng, Richard Ng, Linda Trinh. Director Emily Ting is a groundbreaking female filmmaker. Her analysis of the prelude to love can recall that of Richard Linklater: ‘Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong’ could very well be the Asian adaptation of the trilogy ‘’Before Sunrise-Before Sunset-Before Midnight.’ In Ting’s spirited romance, Ruby, a Chinese American toy designer from Los Angeles, visits Hong Kong for the first time on business.

Diversity Scandal Overlooks Historic Year for Women at Oscars

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Patrick Shanley

Managing Editor

When it comes to this year’s Academy Awards, no word is more buzzworthy than “diversity”. For the second year in a row the Oscars have nominated only white actors in their four main acting categories, sparking backlash and, as a result, inciting the Academy to announce new changes to tackle its “diversity problem”.

Amidst another year of #OscarsSoWhite trending on Twitter, however, the fact that 2015 has been an exceptionally strong year for women has been largely overlooked. Three of this year’s best picture nominees (BrooklynRoomMad Max: Fury Road) are female-centric and feature strong female protagonists in the center of the action. In fact, even outside of those films and their performances, a number of women are nominated for best picture as producers, as well. Kristie Macosko Krieger is nominated for Bridge of Spies, Blye Pagon Faust is nominated for Spotlight, Dede Gardner »

[Sundance Review] Complete Unknown

27 January 2016 2:49 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Armed with two top-notch leads and a compelling premise, Joshua Marston‘s third feature, Complete Unknown, spends a lot of time hinting at which direction it will go, without going anywhere at all.

Tom (Michael Shannon) is living with his wife Rehema (Azita Ghanizada) in New York City, spending the majority of his days drafting agricultural policy emails in a cramped government office. It is the night of his birthday party, and tensions are high. Rehema’s got an employment opportunity across the country, and the pressure for Tom to move is strenuous, no thanks to his obnoxious co-worker Clyde (Michael Chernus), who has come to the party with a friend named Alice (Rachel Weisz).

Before long, Tom’s looking at Alice as though he knows her. At the opening of the film, we’re shown Weisz’s mysterious character in several different roles. She’s a performer in Japan »

Sundance Review: Barack Obama Romance 'Southside With You'

27 January 2016 9:35 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Southside With You” is a low-key romance with one heck of a hook, following a up-and-coming corporate lawyer named Michelle Robinson as she spends one summer day in Chicago in 1989 with one of her firm’s interns: Harvard student Barack Obama. The whole “two people walk around a city and fall in love” plot has been done — most notably by Richard Linklater with his “Before Sunrise”/“Before Sunset”/“Before Midnight” trilogy — but by making his young lovers into the future President and First Lady of the United States, writer-director Richard Tanne easily clears one of the biggest hurdles facing anyone trying to grab an audience. No one can reasonably ask, “Why should I care about these two schmoes?” Still, don’t underestimate the degree of difficulty to what Tanne’s attempting here. Not only did he have to cast a credible Barack and Michelle, he also had to know that »
