Cate Blanchett on Crafting a Career, One Choice at a Time: Awards Season Flashback

2 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: This post is presented in partnership with Spectrum. Catch up on this year’s Awards Season contenders and past winners On Demand. Today’s flashback winner is “Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.”]

In a career that already seen five Oscar nominations and one win for a body of work that includes remarkable performances as Queen Elizabeth, Bob Dylan and Katherine Hepburn, no less, Cate Blanchett somehow topped herself this year.

As the title character in Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine,” Blanchett plays a woman whose wealthy husband (Alec Baldwin) has lost all their money, forcing her to abandon their upper class Manhattan life to live with her working class sister (Sally Hawkins) in San Francisco. Even at this point, Jasmine is somewhere past the verge of a nervous breakdown, and Blanchett manages her character’s subsequent further spiraling with a tour-de-force authenticity that blew away audiences and critics alike.

Leading into the Oscars, Blanchett has already won a slew of kudos for “Blue Jasmine,” including a Golden Globe, honors from the New York and Los Angeles critics groups and nominations from SAG, »

‘Maudie’ Trailer: Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke in Aisling Walsh’s Biopic

20 February 2017 2:07 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

After screening in Telluride and Toronto last fall, “Maudie” is finally ready to tell the masses about the life of Canadian artist Maud Lewis. Sally Hawkins stars in the biopic, which was directed by Aisling Walsh, who previously helmed a BBC miniseries adaptation of Sarah Waters’ “Fingersmith” (which also served as the inspiration for Park Chan-wook’s “The Handmaiden”). Watch the trailer below.

The film takes place in Nova Scotia circa the 1930s and finds the desperate artist taking a job working for a fish peddler played by Ethan Hawke. Lewis, one of her country’s most highly regarded folk artists, specialized in small paintings depicting outdoor settings; the small size of her canvases had to do with Lewis’ rheumatoid arthritis.

Sally Hawkins Creates Art in First Trailer for ‘Maudie’

20 February 2017 6:54 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Sally Hawkins, who has delivered no shortage of remarkable performances in Happy-Go-Lucky, Blue Jasmine, and more, is back this year with a new biopic. Aisling Walsh‘s Maudie, which premiered at Telluride Film Festival last fall, captures the life of Maud Lewis, a Canadian folk artist who suffered from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Also starring Ethan Hawke, the film depicts their tumultuous relationship amidst Maud’s creativity, and today brings the first trailer, fittingly hailing from Canada, where it’ll be released in April, a few months prior to its U.S. debut.

We said in our review, “The committed relationship the two undertook stands at the heart of Maudie. Hawkins further proves her range, portraying Lewis as a shy, slouched, but talented woman that almost never looks at anyone in the eyes, her head always down. Hawke is miscast as Everett in a role that demands a tough aggressiveness, but »

BBC Films: who’s in the running for the top job?

14 February 2017 11:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen considers potential runners and riders.

The BBC is likely to announce its new head of film within the next two weeks, according to sources close to the process.

Scroll down for potential candidates and the original job spec

That timetable should come as a relief to those under consideration for the role and to wider industry who will want to begin building or growing their relationship with the new boss.

The job, which is considered one of the UK’s most prestigious posts, became vacant in autumn 2016 following the departure of long-time chief Christine Langan. BBC Films veteran Joe Oppenheimer has been serving as acting head of film since then.

The incoming head of film is expected to have an annual war chest of around £12m for production, cementing BBC Films’ position as one the three mainstays of public funding in the UK along with the BFI and Film4.

Ocean’S 8: First Image Released, Check Out The Star Power In Action!

30 January 2017 12:05 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ocean's 8 will be a reboot of George Clooney's Ocean's 11 franchise, and while everyone involved has kept a tight lip about the plot we do know that it will feature an all female cast and pictured above are the eight women rumored to be the actual "Ocean's 8". Now, I know where almost everyone's mind is heading right now -- way back to 2016 when an all female cast massacred Ghostbusters, tore the franchise to shreds, and stomped in the face of "Bill effing Murray" who was actually kind enough to lend his celebrity status to the movie. I do not think this will be the case in Ocean's 8 and the main reason is the caliber of most of the actresses involved. Let's take a look at the eight in the picture and a few more ladies involved as well.

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Chapter One: The River's Edge

26 January 2017 7:00 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

What do you get when you mix Twin Peaks with Archie Comics?

You get Riverdale. A dark and picturesque mystery that pulls you in with dreams of white picket fences and hidden secrets. It may sound strange at first, but it works.

Riverdale Season 1 Episode 1 introduced us to the small town of Riverdale, and the familiar faces/places we grew up reading in the Archie Comics. But it's nothing like the comics. This is Archie with an edge.

The tone is slower, the colors are darker, and the characters have their own wants and desires. This is a juicy mystery served like a soda pop at Pop Tate's Chock'lit Shoppe. (Speaking of, I love the neon coloring in the Shoppe.)

The introduction to the mystery pulled me in from the start. The sound and editing teams did a great job with creating the perfect creepy feeling. Everything from the slow »

‘Riverdale’ Review: Weird ‘Archie’ Update is an Exciting Blend of The CW’s Superheroes and Soap

26 January 2017 9:37 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Archie may have been born as a comic book character, but it was Greg Berlanti and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa who gave him a superhero physique. That is not a critique, but it is perhaps the first thing you might notice about the CW’s new take on the 76-year-old all-American high schooler, now making his live action television debut.

Riverdale” could be seen as a “Island of Doctor Moreau”-esque attempt to cross-breed the DC TV universe currently thriving on the CW with a “Gossip Girl”-style teen drama made which was so popular in the CW’s early days. In fact, that might be the easiest way to describe it. And yet there’s just enough happening underneath the surface to make it worthy of deeper study. This is no zombie corpse of a comic book adaptation. »

What Guillermo Del Toro's Shape of Water Is Really About

4 January 2017 4:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August, Fox Searchlight Pictures announced that production started on director Guillermo del Toro's new film The Shape of Water, although a release date has still not been set at this time. The announcement confirmed that the cast will include Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine, Happy Go-Lucky), Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road, 99 Homes), Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Olive Kitteridge), Doug Jones (Crimson Peak, Hellboy), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man) and Octavia Spencer (The Help, Gifted). Fans haven't been given much to go on, in terms of plot details, until now, thanks to star Doug Jones.

The August report only described the story as an "other-worldly story", set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963, described as a "mysterious and magical journey." With the inclusion of Doug Jones, who has played iconic monsters for Guillermo del Toro such as Abe Sapien in Hellboy and Fauno in Pan's Labyrinth, many »

Casey Affleck Reads From Old Bad Reviews at New York Film Critics Circle Awards

4 January 2017 8:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Casey Affleck, the best actor winner at Tuesday night’s New York Film Critics Circle Awards, took the podium with some ammunition; a stack of bad reviews written about previous performances in his career. “Fortunately, he’s not the lead,” read an old clipping. “I would say that’s fair,” the actor chimed in.

Affleck, the star of Kenneth Lonergan’s drama “Manchester by the Sea,” is a frontrunner to win the best actor Oscar, and his stop at the Nyfcc dinner held at Tao Downtown was another momentum-building moment on the campaign trail. Although the Nyfcc doesn’t always overlap with the Oscars, they have singled out previous soon-to-be Academy Awards winners like Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”), Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”) and Colin Firth (“The King’s Speech”).

Since all the prizes had been announced in advance, the event was a celebratory lap with relaxed speeches and a few jokes »
