2018 SAG Awards: Top 6 film upsets to watch out for include ‘Mudbound,’ Timothee Chalamet, ‘Baby Driver’ …

2018 SAG Awards: Top 6 film upsets to watch out for include ‘Mudbound,’ Timothee Chalamet, ‘Baby Driver’ …
Last year at the SAG Awards we were shocked when “Hidden Figures” won the top prize for its ensemble cast over “Manchester by the Sea” and the eventual Oscar winner for Best Picture, “Moonlight.” Well, most of us were shocked. The 2018 awards season has been even more divided, so while, as always, we think we know who’s going to win, we should probably keep our eye out for some major upsets. Here are the top 6 shockers to watch out for.

“Lady Bird” cast — Though most of our users are torn between “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “Get Out” for the top prize, we shouldn’t take our eye off of “Lady Bird.” It’s tied with “Three Billboards” as the largest nominated ensemble with 11 credited cast members. This would also be an opportunity to honor lead actress Saoirse Ronan and supporting actress Laurie Metcalf if voters decide to

Why the Woman in Justin Timberlake's "Supplies" Music Video Looks So Damn Familiar

The music video for Justin Timberlake's new song, "Supplies," could double as a short dystopian film. Eerie white crocodiles? Check. Burning pyramids with Illuminati-esque symbols? Check. Oh, and some fiery sex scenes between Timberlake and the woman who stars in the video? Duh. If the woman featured throughout the sexy video has you wondering where you might have seen her before, you're not alone. The woman in question is 27-year-old Mexican actress Eiza González. If you watched 2017's critically-acclaimed comedy crime film, Baby Driver, then you'll recognize the budding star for her role as Monica "Darling" Castello. González played the lawless, ill-fated wife of Buddy (Jon Hamm), and a member of Doc's (Kevin Spacey) notorious ensemble of bank robbers in the action-packed hit. Image Source: Sony Pictures You'll be able to see a lot more of González onscreen soon. This Summer, you can catch her starring in the sci-fi

SAG Awards Predictions 2018: Who Will Win?

SAG Awards Predictions 2018: Who Will Win?
The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are set to unfold Sunday, Jan. 21. Nominations leaders were “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” on the film side and the trio of “Big Little Lies,” “Glow,” and “Stranger Things” on the television side. How will the industry’s actors react to another year on the big and small screens? Here are our predictions. Tune in Sunday night to see if we nailed it.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

It’s hard to imagine the guild passing on a legend like Gary Oldman, who disappears into the epic role of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” If an upset is lurking, look to newcomer Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”).

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, basically. The lead actress contest has been the most competitive all year. Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) has the showiest work.

For Real Action, There’s No Substitute for Stunt Professionals in Movie Production

For Real Action, There’s No Substitute for Stunt Professionals in Movie Production
Filmmakers use visual effects to create spectacular images, but the technology has yet to be devised that can replicate all human movement. For that reason, many of today’s biggest and most ambitious films still use stunts for their most memorable action moments.

This year five films — “Baby Driver,” “Dunkirk,” “Logan,” “War for the Planet of the Apes” and “Wonder Woman” — have been nominated for the SAG Award for outstanding action performance by a stunt ensemble in a motion picture. The directors on these films all preferred to turn to stunt coordinators as much as possible to capture action through the camera, in some cases enhancing that movement digitally in post.

On the set of “Dunkirk,” helmer Christopher Nolan wanted viewers to experience the minutiae of warfare with the soldiers on-screen, and it was always his plan to use stunt pros instead of digital effects. To prepare, stunt coordinator Tom Struthers researched the historical battle at the

Paul Thomas Anderson Admits He’s Most Proud of ‘The Master’ and Wants Emmanuel Lubezki to Shoot One of His Films

Paul Thomas Anderson Admits He’s Most Proud of ‘The Master’ and Wants Emmanuel Lubezki to Shoot One of His Films
Paul Thomas Anderson has been making the press rounds as “Phantom Thread” heads into nationwide release, and his most recent bit of promotion included a Reddit Ama in which he was extremely blunt about a wide-ranging list of subjects. Many directors might have difficulty choosing which film they are most proud of, but not Anderson. The director listed “The Master” when asked, and he elaborated on one of the reasons the film is special to him in another response.

Jon Bernthal interview: Sweet Virginia, The Punisher

James Hunt Jan 18, 2018

We chat to Jon Bernthal about new movie Sweet Virginia, out now on DVD, and why there's a little bit of The Punisher in all of us...

In the last few years, credits on the The Walking Dead, Daredevil, The Punisher and Baby Driver have made Jon Bernthal a regular and welcome fixture on the screens of virtually all Den of Geek readers.

In Jamie M. Dagg's Sweet Virginia, Bernthal's latest role sees him playing a former rodeo champion who has decamped to Alaska, only to find a triple murder in the town awakening a darkness within him. We caught up to hear Bernthal's thoughts on making the movie and the roles that made him famous.

So, how did you get involved with Sweet Virginia?

Ant-Man And The Wasp Team Up In Awesome New Photo

Of the 2018 slate of McU movies, Ant-Man and the Wasp is receiving comparatively little attention to its companions. This isn’t really surprising, though, as Black Panther explores a fresh and exciting corner of the McU and properly introduces us to Chadwick Boseman’s cool-as-hell looking hero, and Avengers: Infinity War is the culmination of nearly ten years of interlinked storytelling and looks to be the most maximalist superhero jamboree of all-time.

By comparison, the Ant-Man sequel follows on from one of Marvel Studios’ lowest grossing movies and right now, it’s difficult to tell what the film’s unique selling point will be. That being said, I still have faith in the project.

As a huge Edgar Wright fan, I was insanely skeptical of the original Ant-Man, all but convinced it was going to be a neutered superhero origin story. So, it was a nice surprise when replacement director

Penultimate Predictions a week out from the Oscar nominations

Seven days from now, we’ll know who and what the Academy Award nominees are. My final set of predictions will drop on Monday, but for now, I wanted to tinker just a little bit first. For what it’s worth, over the coming weekend, the Producers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild will be giving out their awards, so while that can’t impact nominations, it’s still noteworthy. They’re arguably the two biggest precursors, and gems of the guild season, so there’s a chance that I might tinker with final predictions next week if something crazy goes on there. That’s a problem for future me though. As you’ll see below, not a whole lot has changed. Ballots are in though, so what’s done is done. I’m working my few Oscar voter sources to see if anything has gotten more love than expected.

John Krasinski, Emily Blunt And Ansel Elgort Are The McU’s Fantastic Four On New Fan Art

It’s now 100% official – Disney has swallowed up 21st Century Fox, meaning the X-Men and Fantastic Four are within grasp of Marvel Studios. After Spider-Man came home not too long ago, these properties were virtually the only ones outside of the company’s reach. Now, the Marvel comics universe is extremely close to being whole on screen, and we couldn’t be more excited.

After all, when it comes to the Four, at least, Fox has never been able to figure things out. The 2005 movie and its sequel aimed to replicate the bright, all-ages tone of the comics and ended up skirting Batman & Robin levels of camp and cheese. Then, the 2015 reboot ended up being even worse by trying to “Nolanize” the characters but failing miserably. What Fox should have done is pitch the Four the same way that Marvel does all their properties: fun, accessible to everyone but grounded in character.

The Shape of Water bests Three Billboards at 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards, while Big Little Lies leads TV winners

Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy romance The Shape of Water emerged as the big winner from the 23rd Critics’ Choice Awards, scooping four awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Meanwhile, HBO’s Big Little Lies dominated the television categories, also winning four prizes.

The Shape of Water defeated Oscars frontrunner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in the majority of the categories in which they competed, though Frances McDormand beat Sally Hawkins to the Best Actress prize and Sam Rockwell was crowned Best Supporting Actor for his work in Irish filmmaker Martin McDonagh’s incendiary drama.

Elsewhere, Gary Oldman followed up his Golden Globe victory with another Best Actor prize for his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while Jordan Peele added his name firmly to the Oscar conversation with a screenplay victory for Get Out.

Updated Academy Award predictions as voting is going on

In just a few days, ballots for the 90th Academy Award will be due, which means that now is literally the most crucial point in the season. If a screener is going to be watched, it’s going to be watched today. The voters I’m in contact with still have things to see, so you best believe that last minute viewings are occurring. For certain titles that might end up missing when nominations are announced, it could be in part due to not enough Academy members giving it a shot. Time will tell there, but for now, we’re trying to figure out what Oscar is about to do. Below you can see an up to date look at the race. Focusing in on Best Picture for this preview, there are essentially 11 films in the running for however many slots the Academy ends up having this year. How that

Fyc: Best Editing, Baby Driver

by Tim Brayton

If you know one thing about Baby Driver, surely it's that the film was conceived from the ground up to move in perfect time to music. Every aspect of the film that could be tied to the rhythm of the soundtrack was: the movement of the camera, the blocking of the actors, and the cutting between shots.

Perhaps that sounds like an impressive trick. But "impressive" hardly starts to cover it: love the film or not (I was a little cool on it, overall), Baby Driver is indisputably one of 2017's most audacious piece of film craftsmanship, a high-wire act of choreographing every element of the film production process into one steady flow. And by no means the least of this craft came in the form of the editing done by Paul Machliss and Jonathan Amos.

The editors' work on this film began unnaturally early...

Eric Fellner Talks ‘Darkest Hour’ Awards Buzz, What’s Next for Working Title

Eric Fellner Talks ‘Darkest Hour’ Awards Buzz, What’s Next for Working Title
Winston Churchill movie “Darkest Hour” was one of the standout performers at the BAFTA Awards nominations Tuesday, garnering nine nominations, including for best film. Its lead actor, Gary Oldman, is widely considered the favorite for the Oscar, having picked up the Golden Globe on Sunday.

For “Darkest Hour’s” producer, London-based Working Title, there was more good news as its “Victoria & Abdul” and “Baby Driver” also landed one and two BAFTA nominations, respectively. Variety spoke to Working Title co-chair Eric Fellner about the awards buzz and where his company is headed.

Darkest Hour” amassed nine nominations. Was that at the upper end of what you could have hoped for?

I’m English and we never expect anything….So I’m always very happy when anything good happens to any of our movies.

Some people were surprised director Joe Wright didn’t get a nod.

We’re particularly proud of the film and our relationship with Joe
