‘Leopard’ Review

Stars: Tom Hopper, Jack Reynor, Eoin Macken, Rebecca Night, Liam Carney, Charlotte Atkinson, Melia Kreiling, Brian Fortune, Laura Hopper, Anthony Murphy | Written and Directed by Eoin Macken

Anyone who listens to our podcast knows that while Chris and myself love the fanfare of the huge blockbuster Marvel/DC/Star Wars releases. But nothing can quite compare to the smaller independent films that you just know every second of screen time came straight from one persons passion to make a piece of cinema that is all their’s. A movie that can display such mastery of their craft and hit you square in the heart (or balls) and make you feel something that… In my opinion capes and spandex just can’t do that.

Leopard is exactly that type of movie.

A true passion piece that is driven by the wonderfully carefully calculated mind of its writer/director/actor, but smashed

Wild Eye to debut Debbie Rochon’s ‘Model Hunger’

WildEye Releasing have announced they are set to release the directorial debut of Scream Queen Debbie Rochon, Model Hunger. After nearly 300 films, Rochon (Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Phobia, The Theater Bizarre) steps behind the camera to skewer audiences with her blood-curling take on an actress’ response to forced retirement.

Former pinup model Ginny (Lowry) had been cast aside by the heartless and exploitative modeling industry. Ginny didn’t take rejection well and grew into a revenge-seeking, bloodthirsty, broken woman. When her new neighbors Debbie (Shepis) and Sal (Capobianco) move in, Debbie begins to notice strange things going on. Sal believes she is mentally unstable, but Debbie becomes determined to figure out what secret life Ginny is leading. Her new nosy neighbor throws a damper on Ginny’s private life: her cannibalistic addictions and ever-growing body count. Both women become determined to put an end to the other’s obsession.

Screen Actor’s Guild nominations announced

The 22nd Annual Screen Actor’s Guild (SAG) nominations were announced yesterday in Hollywood. A very distinct trend is taking place with Carol and Room leading the field in the film categories. The SAG awards recognise individual, cast and ensemble performances in film and television for 2015, and also for outstanding action performances by film and television stunt ensembles.

The awards will be dished out in the new year and have always been an indicator for the acting awards for the Academy Awards, the nominations for which are announced next month.

The SAG nominations were announced at Pacific Design Center’s SilverScreen Theater in West Hollywood, and will be awarded at a ceremony on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016.

Here are the nominees in full.

Beasts Of No Nation, Straight Outta Compton Among SAG Awards Ensemble Nominees

Contributed by Michelle McCue and Melissa Thompson

A morning full of eye-opening surprises, the nominations for the 22nd Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced.

The standout nods were the inclusion of Straight Outta Compton, Beasts Of No Nation, Sarah Silverman, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Idris Elba and two for Dame Helen Mirren.

Not among the perceived hopefuls called were Sylvester Stallone, Charlotte Rampling, Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, The Martian and The Hateful Eight.

Two nominating panels – one for television and one for film – each composed of 2,200 randomly selected union members from across the United States, chose this year’s nominees.

Some of the Sags choices were head-scratchers to be sure, but we’re thinking that the Oscar picks may be very different when The Academy announces their nominations next month live on Thursday, January 14, 2016, at 5:30 a.m. Pt at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

'Trumbo' leads SAG Award nominations

  • ScreenDaily
'Trumbo' leads SAG Award nominations
Idris Elba and Helen Mirren lead actor nominations with three nods each.Scroll down for full list of film and TV nominations

Hollywood blacklist drama Trumbo has led the nominations for the 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards with three nods for lead actor Bryan Cranston, supporting actress Helen Mirren and the ensemble cast. The Martian and The Hateful Eight were shut out.

Set in 1947, the film centres on Dalton Trumbo (Cranston), who was Hollywood’s top screenwriter, until he and other artists were jailed and blacklisted for their political beliefs.

Cranston will go up against Johnny Depp for Black Mass, Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant, Michael Fassbender for Steve Jobs and Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl.

Films that secured two nominations included Beasts Of No Nation, The Big Short, Carol, The Danish Girl, Room, Spotlight - whose outstanding cast nod will only strengthen its status as best picture Oscar frontrunner — and Steve Jobs.

Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations and It's Full of Surprises! See Full List!

The 22nd annual SAG Awards nominations were announced this morning and it's full of surprises! Sylvester Stallone, loved by critics and the National Board of Review for his performance in "Creed," was ignored. So was Kristen Stewart's supporting performance in "Clouds of Sils Maria." Matt Damon, who was so good and carried "The Martian" from start to finish, was also missing from the list.

But here's what I love about the SAG noms. First, Sarah Silverman's first dramatic performance in "I Smile Back" was embraced. And I'm also happy with the inclusion of "Room's" Brie Larson and the fantastic child actor, Jacob Tremblay. The endearing "Carol" also received noms for both Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and Saoirse Ronan's performance in the beautiful "Brooklyn" also received a nomination.

The big winner of the SAG noms is Bleecker Street's "Trumbo." Missing from earlier critics awards (see here

‘Trumbo’ Leads 2016 Screen Actors Guild Award Nominations

Nominees for the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were unveiled this morning in Hollywood, with a fair amount of surprises to be had. Leading the pack is Trumbo, which picked up three nominations, then a large batch of films behind it with two each: Beasts of No Nation, The Big Short, Carol, The Danish Girl, Room, Spotlight, and Steve Jobs.

Perhaps most surprising is no mention of The Hateful Eight, which has one of the year’s best ensembles. Also of questionable note is the inclusion of Helen Mirren for Woman in Gold, a film all but forgotten (we suppose Harvey Weinstein’s campaigning indeed worked). There’s also the welcome nods to Michael Shannon in 99 Homes and Sarah Silverman in I Smile Back, as well as an ensemble nod to Straight Outta Compton. Check out the full list of nominees below ahead of the ceremony on Saturday, Jan.
