10 Reasons Why We Want to Both Be and Be BFFs with Gina Rodriguez

5 May 2016 2:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ever since we saw the pilot episode of Jane the Virgin - and instantly started following the entire cast's Instagram - we've had a massive friend crush on Gina Rodriguez, the show's charismatic protagonist. Judging by Rodriguez's social media - which we may or may not spend perusing every day - she seems just as kind, funny and (duh) beautiful as Jane. Ok, enough gushing. Let us present 10 pieces of scientific proof that corroborate our thesis: Gina Rodriguez is unequivocally the best. 1. She shaved off a third of her head and still looks as fly and fierce as ever. Annihilation. »

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.

Arabian Nights (Miguel Gomes)

In lauding Miguel Gomes‘ three-part, six-and-a-half hour behemoth, it’s perhaps important to consider his background as a critic. Not just in terms of the trilogy’s cinephilic engagement with Rossellini, Alonso, Oliveira, etc.; also in its defiant nature. While it’s easy to assign the trilogy certain humanist and satirical labels from the get-go and just praise these films for following through on them, Gomes continually seeks to mutate and complicate his of age-of-austerity saga. »

Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Deadpool (Tim Miller)

As Hollywood struggles to reinvent their array of superheroes with each iteration, it’s no surprise that audiences would become hungry for something off the beaten path. While it’s not the first post-modern comic-book adaptation, Deadpool is billed as ushering in a new direction: a fan-spurred, self-aware tentpole that’s R-rated to its core, featuring a wise-ass character (don’t call him »

Variety’s 2016 Mentor of the Year: Pepperdine Professor Craig Detweiler

27 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Students who attend classes taught by Craig Detweiler — Variety’s 2016 Mentor of the Year — are getting more than just an education in film.

Detweiler, professor of communication at Pepperdine U. and creative director of the school’s Institute for Entertainment, Media and Culture, provides a path through what he calls “the angst that is endemic to the (entertainment) industry” by encouraging his students to view the industry from an entrepreneurial standpoint.

“I’m trying to inspire long-term, sustainable creativity,” which can be achieved through an adherence to story, the ability to adapt to the “madness that we know as Hollywood,” and an understanding of all sides of the industry as a means of controlling one’s creative career.

That multi-disciplinary approach is at the heart of the institute, which prepares its students for the 21st-century media marketplace through an array of disciplines — arts and humanities, law, psychology, business — and collaboration »

Variety is reporting that New Girl actor Max Greenfield is set to join the upcoming adaptation of Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle, from acclaimed director Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12).

Academy Award winner Brie Larson (Room), who worked with Cretton on Short Term 12, plays said lead in the film which tells the story of “a young girl who comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads. Walls’ eccentric mother and alcoholic father would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.”

Cretton and Andrew Lanham have written the adaptation, which also stars Naomi Watts (Birdman) and Woody Harrelson (Now You See Me 2). Filming is set to begin in June and set for release in 2017.

Indigenous Media, Josh Hutcherson Ready Quintet Of Digital Short Film Projects

21 April 2016 11:44 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In November 2015, digital production studio Indigenous Media and Hunger Games co-star Josh Hutcherson announced an incubator project that would take scripts provided by Hollywood’s Black List and turn them into digital shorts. At the Tribeca Film Festival, Indigenous co-founder Jake Avnet and Hutcherson provided an update on their incubator. They have now found the five scripts they will adapt, and production on at least one of those projects will begin in May, with an expected summertime release.

Indigenous is planning to distribute its incubated short films on digital platforms, and it is therefore focusing on concepts that will appeal to millennial viewers. At Tribeca, Avnet and Hutcherson revealed two of their five planned projects, and both feature twentysomething characters who must overcome personal strife. Hutcherson will direct Ape, which will focus on a young man who is battling schizophrenia, while Brad Martocello, who also appeared on the Tribeca panel, »

Max Greenfield in Talks to Star With Brie Larson in ‘Glass Castle’ (Exclusive)

20 April 2016 12:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After making audiences laugh for five seasons on “New Girl,” Max Greenfield is taking a big step forward in the dramatic field as he’s in talks to star with Brie Larson in Lionsgate’s adaptation of “The Glass Castle.”

Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts are also on board to star in the film from “Short Term 12” director Destin Daniel Cretton.

Lionsgate had no comment.

The pic is based on Jeannette Walls’ memoir about a young girl who comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads. Walls’ eccentric mother and alcoholic father would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.

Greenfield will play Jeannette’s loyal, but distant husband. He had a privileged upbringing, and is now living in Westchester and working in finance. He tries to understand and help Jeannette cope with her parents’ unexpected arrival.

A Whit Stillman Trilogy: Metropolitan, Barcelona, The Last Days of Disco

Over the course of the 1990s, writer-director Whit Stillman made a trilogy of films about the acid tongues and broken hearts of some haplessly erudite young Americans in New York and abroad. Set in the eighties, these films trace the arc of that decade, led by Stillman’s Oscar-nominated debut, Metropolitan, which introduced moviegoers to a strange, endangered species of privileged New Yorker, the “urban haute bourgeoisie. »

Miles Ahead Review

31 March 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Though high-speed, higher-stakes car chases of the variety we find opening Miles Ahead are not hard to come by in modern cinema, there’s something remarkably enchanting about watching one featuring the most influential jazz musician in American history riding shotgun.

The verve may not hit all at once. Any experienced biopic viewer may assume the set piece in question could turn out to be little more than an energized track in the “greatest hits album” format that’s standard across the genre. Quickly enough, however, we begin to understand just how much of its time and attention Miles Ahead has chosen to devote to this particularly eccentric episode in Miles Davis’ storied life.

Serving as the movie’s principal through line, the story follows the aging musician and his conditionally witting partner-in-crime, Rolling Stone writer and relative stranger Dave Brill, on a nothing-to-lose attempt to retrieve Davis’ unheard and »

Links: The Beguiled, Real O'Neals, Celebrity Politics, and More

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

Let's try to cover everything we haven't mentioned lately (whew). The biggest and most obvious is that Sofia Coppola, whose plans to follow up Bling Ring with a live action Little Mermaid are no more, is now supposedly working on a remake of the Clint Eastwood romantic drama The Beguiled (1971). The film will star two darlings of Tfe Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst. Plus Elle Fanning so Coppola already sold all the tickets to our crowd. The Clint role is as yet uncast.  They're said to be looking for a 'Chris Pratt' type but what this surely calls for is a watch of the original film to familiarize ourselves.

Let's do it together shall we? It's available on Amazon and iTunes so let's all watch it by April 8th or so and we'll discuss. Deal?

Somehow not a low-budget, Croatia-shot thriller, To the Bone has added Keanu Reeves to its cast. The feature debut of writer-director Marti Noxon, it’ll see him star opposite Lily Collins, playing “Dr. William Beckham, the doctor with an unorthodox style who pushes Ellen (Collins) to choose life and commit to getting better.” Being that this comes from the helmer’s own experiences, one expects something a cut above the standard afterschool special. [Deadline]

Meanwhile, Guillermo del Toro‘s Cold War romance is coming together quickly: after adding Octavia Spencer and Sally Hawkins about two weeks back, the production’s snagged Michael Stuhlbarg for negotiations about a role. As previously reported, it concerns an “otherworldly love story set against the backdrop of Cold War-era America circa 1963” — and that’s all we currently know. [THR]

Naomi Watts May Scale Lionsgate’s Glass Castle With Brie Larson

29 March 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Allegiant star Naomi Watts is circling a role in Lionsgate’s Glass Castle, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Pitched as a big-screen rendition of Jeanette Walls’ memoir, Watts is on the verge of starring opposite Brie Larson for a comedy drama that will see the Room breakout reteam with her Short Term 12 director, Destin Daniel Cretton.

Charting the successful career and life of a young New York woman (Larson, in all likelihood), Glass Castle soon throws a spanner in the works when her “dysfunctional and nonconformist” parents make tracks for the Big Apple to be close to their daughter. Having comfortably put as much distance as possible between her troubled family and a new life, Larson’s protagonist is left facing a family dilemma once mom and dad arrive in town.

Playing the part of the volatile, alcoholic patriarch is Woody Harrelson, while THR confirmed that Watts will take »
