Netflix Alters Model; Gives Awards Films ‘Roma’, ‘Buster Scruggs’ & ‘Bird Box’ Theatrical Runs Before Streaming

  • Deadline
In a seismic move that Deadline earlier this week revealed was coming, Netflix will boost the awards chances of several contending films by setting exclusive limited theatrical releases prior to the streaming service releases of the Alfonso Cuaron-directed Roma, the Joel & Ethan Coen-directed The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and the Susanne Bier-directed Bird Box, latter of which stars Sandra Bullock.

Netflix is selectively evolving its streaming-first model in hopes that Oscar voter traditionalists won’t discount quality films because they were given limited theatrical releases as they simultaneously released on the streaming service. The level of discussion in the press and among Academy members on this subject has ratcheted up particularly because of Cuaron’s Roma, the Participant Media-financed drama which came out of the fall festivals as a potential front-runner in many categories including Best Picture.

This could be a game changing move for Netflix that should put

Martin Scorsese Reveals Details About His Federico Fellini Movie That Never Happened

Martin Scorsese Reveals Details About His Federico Fellini Movie That Never Happened
Martin Scorsese spent the 1990s working on films “The Age of Innocence,” “Casino,” “Kundun,” and “Bringing Out the Dead,” but it turns out he was planning to squeeze in at least one more project that would’ve been a doozy for cinephiles. While receiving the Rome Film Festival’s lifetime achievement award, Scorsese remembered a collaboration between himself and Federico Fellini that never got made because of the Italian director’s death in October 1993.

“In the early ‘90s, unfortunately he passed away [before we could start], but we had the possibility of making with Universal his version of a documentary on production,” Scorsese said (via Italian outlet The Republic). “He had a series of scripts on how a production is made. One, you have the production itself. Then you have the actor, then you have the cinematographer. He was going to make a Fellini film on each one.”

Robert De Niro Has Absolutely No Plans To Retire From Acting Anytime Soon (Exclusive)

A few days shy of his 75th birthday on Aug. 17, Robert De Niro hit the beach in Santa Monica, CA and took a dip in the Pacific. Though he’s marking his 50th year as a movie star, he’s never gone Hollywood — his hometown is where his heart is. "Hollywood is a place, an industry, and a state of mind," Robert has said. "But New York, New York is home." That’s where the most important people in his life are. "To me, family is everything," he shared. "My wife, Grace, my children, my grandkids [are] my entertainment, my art, my passion." Family has always come first for Robert, even though his parents — painters Robert De Niro Sr. and Virginia Admiral — divorced when he was only two years old. His dad came out as gay, and the family remained close; when Robert Sr. was stricken with cancer, Virginia cared for him,

Top 5 Casino Movies

Hollywood has, over the years, constantly flirted with Las Vegas and the casino. There are far too many films to mention where casinos are heavily featured, but we thought we’d look at the top five we feel perfectly bring them both together.

The Hangover

Back in 2009, Todd Phillips brought a movie to the screen which captured a generation. The first film in The Hangover series was the most popular and, at the time, was the top-grossing R-rated movie of all time, taking $467 million at the global box-office. The film follows a group of guys who venture to Las Vegas for a bachelor party – one in which they wake up having lost the groom. They must try to get over their hangovers and discover what happened the night before. The film is completely set in Las Vegas and heavily features one of the most famous casinos on the strip, Las Vegas.

James Woods’ 12 Most Outrageous and Provocative Comments (Photos)

James Woods’ 12 Most Outrageous and Provocative Comments (Photos)
James Woods has made a reputation for himself as one of Hollywood’s most vocal conservative voices on Twitter. He’s suggested that his opinions online have taken him from once being a Hollywood A-lister in films such as “Casino,” “Videodrome” and “Vampires” to now being “blacklisted.” And this July 4, his agent went as far as to drop him, saying in an email that Woods shared on Twitter, “It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic. I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I’d say.” Of course, Woods labeled his former agent a “political liberal” and let him know how he felt. But this exchange is the capper to a long line of provocative opinions, many of which have sparked outrage on both sides of the political spectrum.

Robert De Niro Said To Be Eyeing Role In The Joker Origins Movie As New Character Intel Emerges

It’s looking increasingly likely that the Joker origins movie – not to be confused with Joker and Harley Quinn, or the standalone film earmarked for Jared Leto’s Clown Prince of Crime – will stand on its own two feet, as character descriptions unearthed by That Hashtag Show point to a big departure from the continuity of DC Films.

Said to be operating under the working title ‘Romeo’, we’re hearing that Warner Bros. plans to use Martin Scorsese’s involvement (he’ll executive produce the solo drama) as leverage to court Hollywood legend Robert De Niro for a supporting role.

This is, after all, a double act that has produced the likes of Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, Cape Fear and Casino, so it’s small wonder why Warner Bros. is keen to add an actor of De Niro’s caliber. He’s seemingly up for the part of Murray Franklin, though

‘The Opposition’ Gives Michael Cohen the ‘Goodfellas’ Treatment With Fake Biopic (Video)
Thursday’s episode of the “The Opposition” imagined Trump lawyer Michael Cohen as Martin Scorsese-style star of a fake biopic that felt like “Goodfellas” fan fiction.

“Trump’s Best People: The Michael Cohen Story,” was host Jordan Klepper’s response to the news this week that Cohen ditched has ditched his legal team and might cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of election meddling.

Narrated by “not actually Michael Cohen,” who wants you to know “this isn’t a mob thing,” the comic short had all the hallmarks off Scorsese films like “Casino,” including the soaring soundtrack. It takes viewers through the supposed details of the lawyer’s life, focusing on his many shady business dealings with many shady people.

Sharon Stone eyes Emmy return with her acclaimed performance in ‘Mosaic’

Sharon Stone eyes Emmy return with her acclaimed performance in ‘Mosaic’
In 2004, Sharon Stone won the Best Guest Drama Actress Emmy Award for her scene-stealing turn as attorney Sheila Carlisle on “The Practice.” This year, with her acclaimed performance in Steven Soderbergh‘s six-part HBO miniseries “Mosaic,” Stone is well-positioned for a return to the Emmys, this time in Best TV Movie/Limited Series Supporting Actress.

In “Mosaic,” Stone portrays Olivia Lake, a successful children’s book author and illustrator living an extravagant, if lonesome existence in the ski resort town of Summit, Utah. She crosses paths with the handsome artist and bartender Joel (Garrett Hedlund) and, hoping their friendship might blossom into something more romantic, invites him to rent out space in her lavish home. During this time, Olivia also meets the charming Eric (Frederick Weller) who, unbeknownst to her, is a con man employed by a neighbor hoping to force her to sell the property.

5 Must-Stream Movies Coming to Netflix in June 2018

The DepartedMartin Scorsese is unquestionably one of the most seminal filmmakers of the last and current century. He is a singularly talented director whose credits include no less than Taxi Drive, Mean Streets, Goodfellas and Casino. He reinvented the gangster genre from not only its B-movie roots, but the elevated romanticism of The Godfather. And despite all of this, Oscar recognition evaded him until early in the new millennium, upon directing this adaptation of the Hong Kong detective series Infernal Affairs. And, perhaps controversially, I think it is easily his best film to date: better developed and better

Drive-In Dust Offs: Phase IV (1974)

Man vs. Nature never turns out well in horror; certainly nothing past the ‘50s terrors of looming lizards/shellfish caused by radiation/radiation. And while the ‘70s switched the vibe into eco-horror, the genre never lost sight of the nagging realization that when we push against the elements, they push back hard. So it is with Saul BassPhase IV (1974), a weird and riveting sci-fi thriller that proves (as if it was needed) ants are way smarter than man.

Released in the U.S. in September by Paramount, Phase IV was not a financial success, and only inspired middling critical thought, at best. Lying somewhere between 2001’s cosmic tone poem and a Bert I. Gordon schlocker, audiences chose to ignore the cerebral looking for a visceral experience that isn’t really there; nevertheless, this uneasy mixture results in a unique experience far apart from other When Animals Attack films.
