Daniel Craig to star in The Creed of Violence

It seems that Daniel Craig has secured his first post-007 role, with Collider reporting that the British actor is set to star in the long-gestating drama The Creed of Violence for director Todd Field.

The Creed of Violence is an adaptation of Boston Teran’s novel and takes place during the 1910 Mexican Revolution, with an assassin, Rawbone (Craig), and his estranged son, a young government agent, travelling from Texas to Mexico to infiltrate a smuggling ring.

Field has been developing The Creed of Violence for close to a decade, with Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale previously linked to the role of Rawbone. The filmmaker was previously set to work with Craig on Showtime’s Purity, although the planned series failed to come to fruition after the budget swelled to over $170 million.

Craig has recently wrapped production on director Rian Johnson’s Knives Out, and will soon be reprising the role

15 Biggest Box Office Hits to Premiere at Sundance, From ‘The Blair Witch Project’ to ‘Hereditary’ (Photos)
While Sundance is always a big market for distributors to pick up buzzy indie titles they hope can make a splash with a niche audience or even find its way through a long awards season, sometimes the huge bucks plopped down on some of these films don’t always translate into a profit at the box office. There have been a handful though that have broken out of Sundance to become hits with critics and audiences alike. Below are the all time highest grossing movies at the domestic box office that made their premiere in Park City at Sundance.

15. “A Walk in the Woods” (2015) – $29.5 million

It should come as no surprise that Robert Redford premiered a movie he starred in at at his own festival. But he also proved that he still carries some box office clout. The film, acquired by Broad Green Pictures, was behind only “Dope,” which was picked up for $18 million,

Could Best Actress result in Oscar tie between Lady Gaga and Glenn Close, exactly 50 years after Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand?

Could Best Actress result in Oscar tie between Lady Gaga and Glenn Close, exactly 50 years after Katharine Hepburn and Barbra Streisand?
At this weekend’s Critics’ Choice Awards, there was a shocking tie for Best Actress between Lady Gaga (“A Star is Born”) and Glenn Close (“The Wife”). For many awards pundits, this felt reminiscent of the 1968 Oscars when Katharine Hepburn (“The Lion in Winter”) and Barbra Streisand (“Funny Girl”) tied for Best Actress. As this year actually marks the 50th anniversary of that infamous tie, might the current Oscar race for Best Actress end in a similar result?

SEEOscar sisters? It’s looking more and more likely that Glenn Close and Lady Gaga will Both win Academy Awards

Going into the 1968 Oscars, Hepburn was a respected veteran who at that point had already received 10 nominations from the academy and two wins for 1933’s “Morning Glory” and 1967’s “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.” Meanwhile, Streisand was a newcomer to Hollywood when she made her motion picture debut by reprising her

The miracle of Sissy Spacek – why it's time to rediscover her genius

She stars in The Old Man & the Gun, but all the film’s publicity has been about Robert Redford. Anyone who hasn’t encountered her earlier performances is in for a treat

Troubling news just in of a well-known comic in his early 30s, who approached a friend of mine at a party and squinted at his T-shirt. “What does that say?” he asked. “S-i-s-s-y S-p-a-c-e-k?” An explanation, including the words “Carrie” and “Badlands” and possibly “acting legend”, was forthcoming, but the baffled celebrity was none the wiser. Could it be that the miracle of Sissy Spacek has eluded an entire generation?

Spacek’s pace has admittedly slowed down in the past decade. Her last Oscar nomination was 16 years ago, for her performance as a grieving mother in the revenge drama In the Bedroom. She was a regular a few years back on Bloodline, a Netflix smash full of noirish foreboding and corkscrew twists,

London Film Festival: Robert Redford says farewell to acting with ‘The Old Man and the Gun’

London Film Festival: Robert Redford says farewell to acting with ‘The Old Man and the Gun’
Robert Redford could well win an Oscar for his final role on film in “The Old Man and the Gun,” which recently charmed audiences at the London Film Festival. Writer/director David Lowery tells a merry little story that moves along at a neat pace with an entirely relaxed approach that extends to the performances. Here’s the official synopsis of the Fox Searchlight Pictures movie: Based on the true story of Forrest Tucker and his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public.

In Redford’s swansong, his charm, charisma and likeability are used to full effect. This screen legend has only reaped one Oscar bid for acting: he lost in 1974 for his performance in the Best Picture champ “The Sting” to Jack Lemmon (“Save the Tiger”). He did win an Academy Award for directing the 1981 Best Picture “Ordinary People.

Will Sissy Spacek (‘The Old Man and the Gun’) join elite group of actresses who have won both lead and supporting Oscars?
It has been 17 years since Sissy Spacek was in the Oscar race, but with the release of “The Old Man and the Gun,” she might find herself once again walking the red carpet at the Academy Awards. Spacek has been getting strong reviews for the film, which leading actor Robert Redford has announced will be his last film performance. Rolling Stone poetically described Spacek’s work in the film: “There’s a look that crosses Spacek’s face as she falls in love with this man at a diner that’s the acting equivalent of the first time you tasted ice cream.”

This role could bring Spacek her first nomination as Best Supporting Actress following six nominations as Best Actress. Her first career bid came for her third film, the classic thriller “Carrie.” Spacek herself has described the Brian de Palma film as a “B-List” horror film, and Oscar was

Let's Discuss the Hereditary Scene That Probably Jolted You Out of Your Seat
Warning: just a bunch of Hereditary spoilers ahead.

The scariest thing about Hereditary - apart from the demonic symbology, body horror, and repeated use of ants - might be the fact that it's hard to anticipate any of these events. The trailer for Ari Aster's critically acclaimed horror film is purposefully opaque, and spoilers were not readily available on the internet prior to its official release. To say that Hereditary zigs when you think it's going to zag would be an understatement - and perhaps one scene exemplifies that most.

In the film's first act, before sh*t really hits the fan, Annie Graham (Toni Collette) urges her son, Peter (Alex Wolff), to bring his withdrawn younger sister, Charlie (Milly Shapiro), to a party so she can make friends. Once there, Peter runs off to get high in another room with some classmates, encouraging Charlie to hang out downstairs
