First Look at Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Snoop Dogg in The Beach Bum

First Look at Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron and Snoop Dogg in The Beach Bum
Have you ever wondered what it might be like if Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg worked together in a movie? We need no longer wonder, as that very thing is happening and we have an idea of just how wonderfully ridiculous it looks, thanks to director Harmony Korine. The filmmaker has shared a photo from his upcoming movie The Beach Bum, which showcases the Oscar winner alongside the notorious and legendary rapper. The photo doesn't come with a lot of context, but perhaps it's better that way.

Harmony Korine is currently in post-production on The Beach Bum, which serves as his directorial follow-up to 2013's very wild Spring Breakers. The photo, which surfaced on Reddit, shows Korine working on the movie in a sound studio, with an image of Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg both on screen. It's a tough thing to describe, especially with so little context, but it's pretty incredible.

Amazon Returns to Cannes With Triumphant Oscar Contender ‘Cold War’ and Signs of a Company Learning From Its Mistakes

Amazon Studios’ mission is to make commercial art films headed for critical, festival and (sometimes) awards acclaim. Despite some missteps, its slate shows signs of a developing strategy. In 2017, Amazon made a big splash at Cannes with two auteur-driven Competition films from Todd Haynes (“Wonderstruck”) and Lynne Ramsay (“You Were Never Really Here”), and wound up with a Best Actor prize for Joaquin Phoenix. Now, the company is back at the festival with competition entry “Cold War,” an immediate sensation that suggests the company is still very much in the game.

Last fall, Amazon dominated the New York Film Festival with opener “Last Flag Flying” from Richard Linklater, “Wonderstruck” as the centerpiece gala, and Woody Allen’s scandal-tainted “Wonder Wheel” closing it out — but taking those movies into the crowded fall marketplace was another matter. They floundered. A year later, the company seems to be trying to learn from its

Cary Fukunaga to Direct Jake Gyllenhaal in Leonard Bernstein Biopic ‘The American’
Jake Gyllenhaal will portray “On the Waterfront” and “West Side Story” composer Leonard Bernstein in “The American,” the next film from director/producer Cary Fukunaga. Nine Stories, the Oscar-nominated actor’s (“Brokeback Mountain”) production company, will produce the biopic with financier Bron Studios.

He oversaw Carnegie Hall and New York Symphony Orchestra concerts, plus others in London, Milan, Tel Aviv, and more. During his career, Bernstein’s televised performances won 11 Emmy Awards, plus a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 1985. “On the Waterfront” earned him an Oscar nomination.

New Trailer Released For Joaquin Phoenix's Wonderful Film Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot

If you're a fan of Joaquin Phoenix, his latest film project Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot is a must watch because he gives one of his best performances in it. I had a chance to see the film at Sundance and I thought it was a wonderful film and one of director Gus Van Sant's best movies to date.

The movie is based on a true story and it stars Joaquin Phoenix as John Callahan, a slacker alcoholic from Portland whose life is turned upside down when he is paralyzed in a car accident. This difficult journey leads him on a path to becoming a cartoonist.

The movie has a great supporting cast that also includes Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara, and Jack Black. Here's the synopsis:

Second Trailer for Van Sant's 'Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot'

"You're a very special person." Amazon Studios has revealed a second trailer for Gus Van Sant's film Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot, which premiered at the Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals earlier this year. Based on John Callahan's memoir, the story follows a Portland slacker who nearly loses his life in a car accident, and lives in wheelchair after, becoming obsessed with drinking. He tries to give up alcohol and figure out how to live a better life, discovering a love for drawing "edgy, irreverent" newspaper cartoons. Joaquin Phoenix stars as John Callahan, and the cast includes Rooney Mara, Jonah Hill, Beth Ditto, Olivia Hamilton, Udo Kier, Kim Gordon, and Carrie Brownstein. I saw this at Sundance and didn't care much for it, mostly a film about AA and giving up alcohol, if you want that. Jonah Hill is the best part. Second trailer (+ poster

Joaquin Phoenix Recovers His Life in First Trailer for ‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot’

Considering his talented streak, the Joaquin Phoenix business isn’t a bad one to get into, and Amazon Studios have done just that. After releasing Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, this summer, the Phoenix-led biopic Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot will arrive in theaters. Directed by Gus Van Sant, the Sundance premiere tells the story of John Callahan, a paraplegic cartoonist who is picking up the pieces of his life, and the first trailer has arrived today.

I said in my review, “If Callahan’s cartoons had a certain attractive alternative edge, it’s a wonder why Gus Van Sant–whose cinematic experimentations are always curious–didn’t attempt to do the same with telling his story. Outside of a humorous sequence featuring Callahan learning about the available options of sexual fulfillment as a paraplegic–i.e. performing cunnilingus to achieve an

A24 Plants Oscar Season Seeds for Toni Collette in Horrifying ‘Hereditary’ (Exclusive)

A24 Plants Oscar Season Seeds for Toni Collette in Horrifying ‘Hereditary’ (Exclusive)
Indie distributor A24 rarely leads a marketing push with awards at the fore. After all, movies like Alex Garland’s sci-fi thriller “Ex Machina,” Lenny Abrahamson’s unsettling adaptation “Room” and Barry Jenkins’ micro-budgeted intersectionality drama “Moonlight” don’t exactly scream “Oscar!” from the outset. But the New York-based company nevertheless found an awards-season stride with those films and more.

The plan with “Hereditary,” Ari Aster’s terrifying Sundance entry that has been hailed as a new generation’s “Exorcist,” is to launch the film on June 7 as a summer horror movie, seek out its audience, and if all the pieces fall into place, establish the foundation for a campaign in the fall.With a stack of glowing critical notices already fanning the flames, and on the heels of a year that saw genre embraced by the Motion Picture Academy in interesting ways — from best picture victor “The Shape of Water

Target Runs, Press Tours and Hanging With The Bachelor: Inside Channing Tatum's Life Post Split
Timid is a word that just might not exist in Channing Tatum's vocabulary. "I get one shot at life, and I can say that I've lived a crazy one, and I've pushed the limit almost at every turn," he bragged in a 2014 GQ profile, "and I'm super proud of that." Granted, he was pontificating on his decision to play Danny McBride's pimp in Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill's 2013 gross out comedy This Is the End, in which he wears both a leash and a Mexican wrestling mask and, in one deleted scene, drinks the blood squirting from James Franco's severed left limb. But he could have just as easily been discussing his first official post-break up activity. Three weeks after announcing...

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Cary Fukunaga

When you think Netflix’s star capacity has been overloaded, you get news that Emma Stone and Jonah Hill are getting together for a series. That’s impressive and all, but what’s even more impressive to us is the fact the Netflix got Cary Fukunaga to direct the series, Maniac, that’s set to come out later this year. Fukunaga’s body of work may be short, but it’s dedicated and extremely remarkable. Fukunaga directed the latest adaptation of Jane Eyre and the lauded visual adaptation of the book, Beasts of No Nation. Perhaps the biggest stud on his belt is HBO’s first season

2019 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Predictions

2019 Oscars: Best Supporting Actor Predictions
At this point, many are ready to hand the Oscar to “Black Panther” star Michael B. Jordan, given Killmonger’s status as the most layered Marvel villain thus far.

While last year brought the battle of the mothers at the Oscars, a series of fathers could compete in 2019. Matthew McConaughey plays the father of the youngest FBI informant ever in “White Boy Rick.” Steve Carell is the beleaguered dad of a young drug addict (Timothée Chalamet) in “Beautiful Boy.” In “Boy Erased,” Russell Crowe and Nicole Kidman are the Baptist parents of an outed gay teen (Lucas Hedges) who battles his conversion therapist (writer-director Joel Edgerton).

It will be the battle of the Scorsese vets in “The Irishman,” as Harvey Keitel, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino vie for supremacy in more ways than one.

Oscar-winner Sam Rockwell could be back in the race as George W. Bush in Adam McKay’s “Backseat,

11 Actors and Directors Share the Films That Define Them, From Barry Jenkins to Jessica Chastain, Jonah Hill, and More

FilmStruck, the streaming platform from Turner Classic Movies that specializes in arthouse and foreign films, has started a viral movement on social media with the #FilmStruck4 challenge. The company posted to its official Twitter page on April 17 an announcement asking people to share the four films that define them. The challenge quickly grew to include some of the best actors and directors working today, from Guillermo del Toro to Jessica Chastain, Barry Jenkins, Zoe Kazan, Edgar Wright, and more.

Del Toro had a hard time narrowing down his picks to just four, so he posted two separate posts with the eight films that define him. Fans of the director won’t be surprised to see Jean Cocteau’s “Beauty and the Beast” and Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” included among his choices. Jessica Chastain split her list into two, one for performances that define her and one for movies.

‘Maniac’: The Original Norwegian Series Leaves Plenty of Room for Netflix’s Remake to Improve

There are many reasons to remake something. Sometimes it’s for a built-in audience, other times it’s to recapture something that needs recontextualizing in the current times. Rarely is it the case that a remake is made simply because it can be better than the original. At this point, all we have to go off of Netflix’s upcoming series “Maniac” is a short synopsis and a handful of first-look photos. But what we do have extensive evidence of is the Norwegian series Cary Fukunaga’s impending remake is based on, and it might be the rare exception to that rule.

Hiding in plain sight in the Netflix catalog, all 10 episodes of the original — same spelling and everything — is available to stream right now. Starring and co-created by Espen Pa Lervaag, it’s a comedy more absurd in theory than in practice. While staying at a mental facility, Espen
