Lizzie Trailer Brings Down the Axe with Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart

The Lizzie Borden tale has been told many times over, but never quite like this. Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for Lizzie, which puts a new spin on this true-life slasher. It pairs Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart on-screen for the first time, and it promises to be a real scream.

Academy Award nominee Chlo&#235 Sevigny stars as Lizzie Borden, the notorious woman at the heart of one of the most enduring mysteries in American history. After a lifetime of loneliness, Lizzie finds a kindred spirit in housemaid Bridget Sullivan (Kristen Stewart) and their secret intimacy sparks an unthinkable act. Director Craig William Macneill (The Boy (2015), "Channel Zero: Candle Cove") explores the days leading up to the savage crimes in a dark tale of repression, exploitation and thwarted dreams.

Lizzie comes to select theaters this fall from Saban Films and Roadside Attractions. And they had a perfectly creepy

Marvel's Black Widow Movie Will Be Directed By Cate Shortland

Marvel Studios has officially hired a director to helm their Black Widow solo film. That director is Cate Shortland, who is an Australian director best known for the Nazi drama Lore and thriller Berlin Syndrome.

The only film that I've seen from the filmmaker is Berlin Syndrome which was a great movie! Her work on that give me confidence that she will deliver an intense action-packed Black Widow film.

There were a lot of directors in the running for this job and if Marvel Studios is confident in her abilities to tell this story, then why wouldn't I trust them. They constantly deliver great films that are made by talented filmmakers. According to THR, the studio met with over 70 directors for the job, mostly female.

The director runner-ups included Amma Asante, Maggie Betts (Novitiate), Melanie Laurent (Galveston) and Kimberly Pierce (Boys Don't Cry). Out of those choices, from what I know of their work,

Michelle Williams Film About Underground Abortion Clinic Lands at Amazon

Michelle Williams Film About Underground Abortion Clinic Lands at Amazon
Michelle Williams is set to star in and produce “This is Jane” for Amazon Studios, sources familiar with the project told TheWrap on Tuesday.

The film, based on the Laura Kaplan’s book “The Story of Jane: The Legendary Underground Feminist Abortion Service,” will tell the true story of a Chicago woman who founded and ran Jane, an underground abortion service.

Kimberly Peirce (“Boys Don’t Cry”) will direct and John Lesher (“Birdman”) will co-produce the film.

Jane was a group in the late ’60s and early ’70s run by women who taught themselves how to perform abortions before Roe v. Wade made it legal. They helped more than 11,000 women get access to services denied by the medical community. Williams will play the role of Jenny, who founded Jane.

Hilary Swank Explains Her 3-Year Hollywood Hiatus

Hilary Swank Explains Her 3-Year Hollywood Hiatus
Hilary Swank is making a comeback after largely taking some time off from acting to be there for her father. In recent years, the 43-year-old Oscar-winning star of Million Dollar Baby and Boys Don't Cry has not appeared in many large acting projects. She revealed on HuffPost Live in 2015 that her father, Stephen Swank, had undergone a lung transplant and moved in with her. She said she was his sole caregiver, adding, "There's been job opportunities I've passed on, and things that I said 'I can't,' but really what we're here for is our family." Swank, who recently returned to TV with the upcoming series Trust, talked about her father again in an...

In Case You're Wondering What the Original Becky Was Doing After She Left Roseanne . . .

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: ABC When Roseanne was in its original run on ABC, Alicia "Lecy" Goranson famously left the role of Becky in its fifth season to attend college at Vassar, where she majored in English. She was replaced by Sarah Chalke, then returned in season eight, during which she and Chalke shared the role. Goranson then left the show for good in season nine, and Chalke played Becky for the rest of its run. While Goranson's costars like Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Sara Gilbert have stayed in the public eye since the show wrapped in 1997, the original Becky has largely stayed out of the limelight. Her first big project after Roseanne wrapped was in a supporting role in the Oscar-winning film Boys Don't Cry. Goranson played Candace, one of the friends of Hilary Swank's Brandon Teena who find out about him being transgender and react with disgust and violence,

'A Fantastic Woman' Review: Oscar-Nominated Trans Melodrama Is She-Persisted Triumph

'A Fantastic Woman' Review: Oscar-Nominated Trans Melodrama Is She-Persisted Triumph
At the core of this indelibly moving film – Chile's entry in the Oscar race for Best Foreign-Language feature – is a performance of surpassing beauty and tenderness. Daniela Vega is the first openly transgender actress and model in Chile, and her portrayal of Marina Vidal, a trans woman who works as a waitress in Santiago to support her career as a cabaret singer, signals her as a world-class talent. With such cisgender actors as Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl), Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent) and Hillary Swank (Boys Don't Cry) scoring career triumphs in trans roles,

10 Horror Movie Reboots Gone Horribly Wrong

10 Horror Movie Reboots Gone Horribly Wrong
Oh, horror movies. Market research showed that more people knew the phrase Texas Chainsaw Massacre than the number of people who had seen it or even knew what it was about. So you know what that means! Reboot time! Now, there's nothing inherently wrong with rebooting a popular film and/or franchise. But there's also no rule that says they have to be bad. Nevertheless, crappy remakes keep plaguing horror fans. We're looking at 10 horror movie reboots that went horribly wrong.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is easily one of the scariest movies of all time, no question. Loosely based on true events, put together in the early '70s on a shoestring budget, this thing played like some sorta snuff film. It's chilling. It's such a great horror film that once the sequels stopped coming, Hollywood tried to reboot it not once, but twice.

Conan O'Brien Casts a Movie About the Trump-Russia Scandal

2017-07-14T13:22:13-07:00Conan O'Brien Casts a Movie About the Trump-Russia Scandal

Conan O'Brien joked that there is a Trump-Russia scandal movie coming and TBS has already cast the "actors" for the film.

"Eric Trump will be played by Draco Malfoy," said O'Brien, laughing the hardest at the casting of the Harry Potter character. "You'll get yours, Potter," he joked.

The entire Trump family — except for Tiffany and Barron — received look-alikes. The man currently at the center of the controversy, Donald Trump Jr., will be played by "this punching dummy you see at any gym." Jared Kushner is represented by Hillary Swank's character in Boys Don't Cry, while Ivanka Trump is played by Janice from The Muppets. Prince Charles is cast as Donald Trump due to photos of the two men with their hair looking similarly tousled by the wind and a "bored house cat wearing jewelry" will depict Melania Trump.

Jaden Smith Made a Brilliantly Awful Batman Music Video

Jaden Smith Made a Brilliantly Awful Batman Music Video
Get ready to laugh. Hard. And then wonder just what the hell is going on. Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, is no stranger to controversy. And he often likes to court it on all his social media channels. Well, folks, today he truly outdid himself with a little music video he simply likes to call Batman.

Perhaps the actor is feeling a bit despondent after Netflix canceled his series The Get Down. Or maybe he's struggling with some hardcore inner demons we, as mere humans, simply cannot understand. Jaden is, after all, an extraterrestrial vampire who can transcend the walls of space and time. He's not from the future, and he's not from the past. He is a transcendental light being of the moment. And you would know all this if you read his outrageous and often hilarious tweets that just seem to flow out

Annette Bening's Oscar Nominated Roles

Annette Bening's Oscar Nominated RolesAnnette Bening's Oscar Nominated RolesAdriana Floridia1/12/2017 10:14:00 Am

Annette Bening is one of our greatest working actors, and the Academy has surely recognized that. She's been nominated for four Oscars, three for Best Actress in a Leading Role and one for her supporting work in 1990's The Grifters. Despite these accolades, she has yet to take home the gold.

This year, she is again an Oscar front-runner for her performance in Mike Mills' 20th Century Women. Another semi-autobiographical film from the director (his 2011 feature Beginners was based on his real experiences with his father, and Christopher Plummer won the Oscar for his portrayal), this time Mills is paying tribute to his mom. Annette is filling big shoes, playing a character inspired by the director's mother, and Mills' has even said that Annette in a sense is like his mom now, as he has

Frank Ocean Prefers Wong Kar-wai's Early Stuff

For anyone still wondering what took Frank Ocean so long to release his follow-up to Channel Orange, a new theory lies within the pages of the R&B angel’s recently released "Boys Don't Cry" zine to accompany his new album Blonde: perhaps he was blowing through his conscientious Blu-ray collection. Demonstrating an eye for the visionary and the visually dazzling – and inadvertently challenging the hot buzz on that BBC critics’ poll and last week’s #7favfilms on Twitter – Ocean scribbled down a list of his 100 favorite films of all time, and his choices make it clear that he’s as much a student of the cinema as he is a singer of stirring emotionality.

A few standout selections. He’s clearly got love for the go-for-broke auteurism of Herzog and Jodorowsky, reflected in his own sonic adventurism, but he flexes his sensitive side and interest in rehashing the past

19 Flawless Reactions to Frank Ocean's Endless Visual Album

  • BuzzSugar
After about a lifetime of waiting, Frank Ocean finally released new music on Thursday night in the form of a visual album called Endless. We're guessing the title of the project has something to do with the "endless" rumors we've heard about his return to the music industry for the past couple of years, many of which included various details about a sophomore album called Boys Don't Cry. In a very Beyoncé-esque move, Ocean's offering is currently only streaming on Apple Music - but unlike Beyoncé, he didn't drop any individual tracks, which means you have to watch the entire 45-minute video to hear each song. It makes for a beautiful experience (Ocean's voice really is one of a kind) and for much of the video, he is working in what appears to be a warehouse, building a staircase as his new instrumental music plays. Soon after the drop, Rolling

Antibirth Trailer Delivers the Scariest Pregnancy of All-Time

Antibirth Trailer Delivers the Scariest Pregnancy of All-Time
One of the most talked about films at this year's Sundance Film Festival will be hitting theaters over Labor Day weekend, which is quite the fitting release date for Antibirth.

On Sunday, movie fans will find out if Eddie Redmayne wins Best Actor for his performance as trans woman Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. Should Redmayne be victorious, he'd not only score back-to-back Oscars but he would also become the latest in a long line of actors who have courted Oscar attention by playing the opposite sex, playing a trans person or in some other way playing a character whose gender differs than the one of which the actors themselves identify. Not that it comes without some criticism, of course. Also up for an Oscar this year is the
