From ‘Spencer’ to ‘King Richard,’ Directors Dust Off the Past to Reveal Fresh Narratives

From ‘Spencer’ to ‘King Richard,’ Directors Dust Off the Past to Reveal Fresh Narratives
We live in a golden age of historical fiction, from Colson Whitehead’s “The Underground Railroad,” adapted for television by Barry Jenkins, to Mark Sullivan’s bestseller “Beneath a Scarlet Sky,” in development by Pascal Pictures, to Hilary Mantel’s novel “Wolf Hall,” adapted into a BAFTA-winning BBC limited series as well as a Broadway and West End hit.

That trend embraces Hollywood biopics and fact-based movies, always Oscar favorites, as directors turn to the past to sift clues and comprehend the human condition. As we consider the director contenders, whether they’ve spun stories of individuals or events, they’re refracting the past to reveal present truth. From Pablo Larraín to Reinaldo Marcus Green, Aaron Sorkin to Ridley Scott to Lin-Manuel Miranda, this year’s directors feel history’s pull and shape that raw clay into “Spencer,” “King Richard,” “Being the Ricardos,” “Tick, Tick … Boom!” and “House of Gucci.

Caleb Landry Jones to Star in Luc Besson’s Comeback Movie ‘DogMan’ (Exclusive)
Caleb Landry Jones, who won best actor at last year’s Cannes for “Nitram,” is set to play the lead in Luc Besson’s “DogMan.”

Besson penned “DogMan” and will direct it, on top of producing via his banner Lbp. EuropaCorp, the company founded by Besson and now owned by New York-based Vine Alternative, is co-producing the movie.

Producers are Virginie Besson-Silla, who produced Besson’s last five films including “Lucy” as well as Guy Ritchie’s “Revolver,” and Steve Rabineau, who joined Lbp in 2019 after a successful career as a top agent at WME for over three decades.

Andrew Garfield Admits Lying About ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Was ‘Thrilling’

Andrew Garfield Admits Lying About ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Was ‘Thrilling’
Andrew Garfield would seem to agree with Natalie Portman’s character in “Closer” when she says, “Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off,” according to a new interview with The Wrap.

Garfield, who has received career-best reviews for his performance in “Tick Tick Boom,” is spending most of his time these days talking about his other 2021 release. No, not “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” in which he played Jm Bakker. But his top-secret appearance in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” in which he and Tobey Maguire reprised their roles as Peter Parker alongside current Spidey Tom Holland. And though he’s now able to talk freely about his performance in the blockbuster, he had to do some fancy verbal footwork during his previous press tours. Turns out, he liked it.

“There were moments where I was like, ‘God, I hate lying.’ I don’t

Gal Gadot: Imagine video at start of pandemic was ‘in poor taste’
The Wonder Woman actor has said that her celebrity-filled cover of the John Lennon classic from March 2020 was ‘premature’ and not ‘the right thing’

The video, which featured Gadot along with stars including Kristen Wiig, Natalie Portman, Will Ferrell, Zoë Kravitz and Jamie Dornan each singing a line from the song, was intended as a statement of solidarity.

Why Critics Choice win for Jessica Chastain (‘Eyes of Tammy Faye’) would be an especially good sign for Oscars

Why Critics Choice win for Jessica Chastain (‘Eyes of Tammy Faye’) would be an especially good sign for Oscars
Jessica Chastain has been nominated twice at the Oscars without winning, but the Critics Choice Awards had her back when they gave her Best Actress for “Zero Dark Thirty” (2012). She’s nominated again this year for playing the title role in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.” Can she win again and this time ride that wave to her first Oscar win?

Zero Dark Thirty” was hailed by film journalists at the time, winning Chastain awards from multiple regional critics groups across the country as well as that Critics Choice prize, but momentum shifted when industry peer groups weighed in. Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”) won at the BAFTAs, and Jennifer Lawrence (“Silver Linings Playbook”) took SAG and Oscar.

The good news for Chastain is that if she wins Critics Choice again,

Watch out for Lady Gaga: Second time could be the charm at the Oscars

Watch out for Lady Gaga: Second time could be the charm at the Oscars
Pop icon Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta) dazzled in her debut film role in Bradley Cooper’s 2018 adaptation of “A Star is Born.” She earned stellar reviews along with her first Oscar nomination for acting. And while she lost Best Actress to Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), she did pick up the prize for Best Original Song (“Shallow”).

Now, with only her second big screen appearance, the 12-time Grammy-winner is in the Oscar race once again. She is in contention for her portrayal of the infamous Patrizia Reggiani in MGM’s family-crime epic “House of Gucci.” Despite the polarising reviews for Ridley Scott‘s film, she has been receiving raves for her portrayal of Italy’s “Black Widow” and recently won Best Actress from the New York Film Critics Circle.

With a second acting Oscar bid all but certain (she is currently ranked fifth in our odds), she could join the likes of Emma Stone,

Nicole Kidman looks to win long overdue first SAG Award for film with ‘Being the Ricardos’

Nicole Kidman looks to win long overdue first SAG Award for film with ‘Being the Ricardos’
Nicole Kidman is one of the busiest actresses working today, collecting great role after great role with a whole bunch of hardware to show for it. She’s won an Oscar, two Emmys, a BAFTA and numerous other awards over her multiple decades in the industry. Just a few years ago, she won a Screen Actors Guild Award for her performance in the series “Big Little Lies.” Despite all that success, she has yet to win a single SAG Award for any of her film performances, not even for the one she took home an Oscar for, “The Hours.” That may finally change this winter, thanks to Aaron Sorkin‘s latest film, “Being the Ricardos.”

Kidman stars in “Being the Ricardos” as television icon Lucille Ball, ditching her Australian accent and transforming her appearance in the process. She fully commits to the part, which finds Ball dealing with an especially

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’, ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ Among Most Anticipated 2022 Movies

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’, ‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ Among Most Anticipated 2022 Movies
Online ticket retailer Fandango polled more than 6,000 ticket-buyers this month and asked which theatrical tentpoles they’re the most excited about in 2022. Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever topped the list followed by Sony/Marvel’s animated feature Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One).

Even though Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is on a production hiatus as star Letitia Wright recovers from a previous on-set injury, shooting is expected to resume in January with the actress, as Deadline first reported. There’s been no news to date that the sequel’s November 11 release date will be postponed.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, moviegoers have shown recently that they’ll come out for event movies, particularly Marvel Cinematic Universe titles like Spider-Man: No Way Home which became the first movie to clear $1 billion during the Covid era over Christmas. Gower Analytics forecasts that the domestic box office will grow to $9.2 billion next year,

‘The Novice’ Director Lauren Hadaway Channels Aronofsky and Fincher for Tense Crew Drama

‘The Novice’ Director Lauren Hadaway Channels Aronofsky and Fincher for Tense Crew Drama
Like the main character in her debut feature “The Novice,” filmmaker Lauren Hadaway is extremely driven, goal-oriented, and methodical. She’s also a little intense. No big surprise — you’d have to be to land five Indie Spirit nominations for your first movie — including nods for Best Feature and Best Director. Based on the writer-director’s own experience, “The Novice” follows a college freshman who joins the crew team with no prior experience. Fueled by a newfound love of the intensely competitive sport and her own obsessive ambition, she spirals into a physical and psychological hell of her own making. But unlike her severe protagonist Alex Dall, Hadaway has a healthy sense of humor about herself.

“I asked one of the rowers that I based one of the characters on,” Hadaway said during a recent video interview. “I was like, ‘What did everyone think of me back then?’ And she’s like,

Jodie Turner-Smith Says Her "Cosmic Psychedelic" Childbirth Experience Influenced Anne Boleyn Portrayal

Jodie Turner-Smith Says Her
Anne Boleyn's story has been told many times and in many forms. Natalie Portman portrayed the second wife of King Henry VIII in The Other Boleyn Girl, as did Natalie Dormer in The Tudors. So, it's not unreasonable to ask how Jodie Turner-Smith's portrayal on the AMC+ series is any different, or if it's even worth watching for that matter.  But, if you asked Jodie, she would tell you the three-part series is as relevant as ever, making it all the more important to watch during these interesting times. Episode one sees the Tudor queen as she reels from the loss of her son, who was stillborn. It's her third pregnancy loss and though she's...

Critics Choice Awards: How good are these prizes at predicting Oscars?

Critics Choice Awards: How good are these prizes at predicting Oscars?
The Critics’ Choice Awards are renowned as one of the best barometers for predicting the Oscars. Over its 26-year history, the Critics Choice Awards has previewed 15 Best Picture Oscar winners as well as 21 Best Director, 17 Best Actor, 14 Best Actress, 16 Supporting Actor and 18 Supporting Actress champs. Let’s take a closer look at the results of the last six awards seasons to see if the Critics Choice Awards are still a good resource when making your 2022 Oscar predictions.

Last year, the Cca predicted the Oscars when they named “Nomadland” as Best Picture and its helmer, Chloe Zhao, as Best Director. But it only went one for four in the acting categories: Best Supporting Actor Daniel Kaluuya (“Judas and the Black Messiah”). The Critics Choice lead winners were Chadwick Boseman (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”) and Carey Mulligan (“Promising Young Woman”) but the Oscars went to past champs Anthony Hopkins (“The Father”) and
