2018 Emmy awards nominations ballot: See all 34 Best TV Movie contenders from ‘The Beach House’ to ‘Zombies’

The made-for-tv movie was a programming staple for the broadcast networks in the 1970s and 1980s. While it fell out of favor in the 1990s and was even dropped as an Emmy Awards category for three years beginning in 2011, it has been on an upswing as of late. This year, 34 telefilms are in contention for the five nominations that will be revealed on July 12.

All 22,000 plus voting members of the TV academy have until June 25 to cast their ballots for their favorite TV movies. In the past, voters were limited in the number of telefilms that they could put forth. Last year, that cap (which was usually 10 per category) was lifted. And, as opposed to the Oscars, voters for the Emmys do not rank their choices and nominees are determined by a simple tally.

Unlike comedy and drama series, which are simply listed on the ballot by name, the television

Robert Redford is the nicest bank robber ever in ‘The Old Man and the Gun’ trailer

Robert Redford is the nicest bank robber ever in ‘The Old Man and the Gun’ trailer
The first trailer for David Lowery’s “The Old Man and the Gun” is here and if this is indeed Robert Redford’s final role, then he’s going out on a nostalgic high note.

Based on a true story — or mostly, as the trailer cheekily teases — the crime drama stars Redford as the real-life Forrest Tucker, a septuagenarian career criminal who escaped prison at 70 and completed a string of bank heists.

The tone of the film is more retro and laidback than dark and gritty that you may have imagined from the premise, and Redford is in his easygoing Sundance Kid mode here. He’s so disarmingly charming and polite that Tucker’s robbed victim describes him thusly: “Well, he had a gun. But he was also sort of a gentleman.”

This is the kind of vintage cool vibe that could give Oscar voters all the feels.

First Trailer for David Lowery’s ‘The Old Man and the Gun’ Introduces Robert Redford’s Final Role

After the incredibly accomplished, varied trio of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon, and A Ghost Story, director David Lowery returns this fall with his next feature, which also marks the finale performance in the legendary career of Robert Redford, who announced his retirement. Based on David Grann’s New Yorker article, which can be read here, and scripted by Lowery, Fox Searchlight has now released the first trailer for The Old Man and the Gun, which looks like quite a touching, 70s-esque crime drama.

“It’s a lot of fun. Again, we were trying new things,” Lowery told The Playlist last year. “As much as A Ghost Story feels like an experimental film in some ways to me An Old Man feels experimental was well. Not because it has a character wearing a bedsheet, we were trying to have fun and do something lighthearted. I think all

Danny Glover joins Harlem drama Strive

Veteran actor Danny Glover has joined the cast of Strive, a new film from director-producer Robert Rippberger of Aletheia Films.

Written by Harlem native Sha-Risse R. Smith, Strive is a story about an underprivileged girl with a dream of a great education, and a better life. Kalani (Joi Campbell), is a teenager living in Harlem with her older brother Jacob, and her younger sister, Bebe, while her mother struggles to make ends meet.

As Kalani’s siblings get caught in a myriad of hardships, Kalani teeters on the brink of ruin as she struggles to keep both her family and her dream intact. Strive reminds us that hard work, optimism, and perseverance, in the face of overwhelming adversity, is the essence of what it is to be American.

“In character and caliber, Danny Glover is in a league of his own and we are grateful beyond words for him to be a part of Strive.

"Locke & Key" Scores Series Order at Netflix, With Carlton Cuse as Ep

Will Netflix finally be the outlet to unlock the potential in Locke & Key?

The streaming service has handed a straight-to-series order to the comics-based drama, according to The Hollywood Reporter, after Hulu scrapped their own version earlier this year. The project will be entirely recast, but Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) will remain onboard as an executive producer.

The original comic book written by Joe Hill — who’ll serve as an Ep as well — centers on a group of teens who stumble across a collection of magical keys that bring with them supernatural powers… and attract the attention of demons from other realms.

Lethal Weapon 5 Might Be Back In Action, According To Richard Donner

Despite previously pouring cold water on the idea, director Richard Donner has hinted that Lethal Finale aka Lethal Weapon 5 might be back on the cards.

We last heard about the project in late 2017, when it was reported it’d reunite Donner, Mel Gibson and Danny Glover for an admittedly rather wrinkly action sequel. At the time, Donner explained that plans had foundered due to difficult negotiations with Warner Bros. Things seem to have changed since then, however, as in an appearance on Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, they listed Donner’s filmography. When they mentioned Lethal Weapons 1-4, he shouted, “And 5 coming up!”

This is far from a cast-iron confirmation, of course, but it does suggest that the studio logjam must have shifted a bit. If the project really were to go ahead, it’d be a rather strange production. Donner is 88-years-old, Mel Gibson is still (deservedly) suffering

Hilariously Wild Red-Band Trailer For Lakeith Stanfield's Sorry To Bother You

I've got a wild new red-band trailer for a new comedy you've got to watch called Sorry To Bother You. This movie looks incredibly fun and very unique in the way it tells its story. 

The film stars Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta) and the story is set in an alternate present-day version of Oakland, "California black telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success - which propels him into a macabre universe." That magical key to success is using his "white voice" to talk to people over the phone. From there, things get wonderfully wacky.

The film also stars Tessa Thompson, and features Danny GloverArmie HammerSteven Yeun, and Terry Crews. The film is set to be released on July 6th! Enjoy the new trailer, which is filled with all kinds of positive buzz!

‘Sorry to Bother You’ Red Band Trailer Released

Annapurna Pictures have new red band trailer and poster have been released for Boots Riley‘s upcoming film, Sorry to Bother you. Sorry to Bother You looks like a more straight forward comedic take of Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street meets Atlanta. And since this is a red band trailer, you know some parental advisory is suggested.

Most of the footage is the same as we have seen in the previous trailer except this time around there’s some explicit language and a sex scene added. Still, it looks really ridiculous and hilarious and makes it on the list of my must sees for the year.

Official synopsis:

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.

The film stars Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta), Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Armie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name

Sorry to Bother You Red Band Trailer Takes a Walk on the Wild Side

Sorry to Bother You Red Band Trailer Takes a Walk on the Wild Side
A new red band trailer for Sorry to Bother You has arrived. This marks the directorial debut for Boots Riley, who also wrote the script for what promises to be one of the most unique moviegoing experiences of the year. The new trailer has telemarketers putting on their best "white voice," a very uncomfortable phone call from a telemarketer while people are getting busy and oh so much more.

To get things going, we see someone snorting a ridiculously long line of cocaine, just to set the tone. It only gets more wild from there. This movie looks surreal, imaginative and totally nuts. Much of the footage used in this red band trailer was also included in the first trailer released in March. But this one is packed with F-bombs, borderline nudity and other things of that nature which provide a better idea of the unhinged, bizarre flick that is coming our way this summer.

‘Sorry to Bother You’ Red Band Trailer: Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson Sizzle in Summer’s Freshest Comedy
“Sorry to Bother You” has released an electrifying new Red Band trailer, and it’s easy to see why the comedy is one of the most hotly anticipated movies of the summer. Written and directed by hip hop artist/producer Boots Riley, the movie stars Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, and Armie Hammer. Stanfield plays a telemarketer who quickly ascends the corporate ladder once he adopts a “white voice,” and things only get weirder from there. The new trailer teases some of the movie’s more inventive tricks, offering an eye-popping introduction to Riley’s wholly original cinematic voice.

Per the official synopsis: “In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe.” In his B+ review out of Sundance, IndieWire’s Eric Kohn wrote: “[‘Sorry to Bother You’] foregrounds a series of ludicrous developments based around the
