Toronto Film Review: ‘Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band’
Forty-one years after the theatrical release of “The Last Waltz,” Robbie Robertson gets the last word on that era in “Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band,” a documentary picked by the Toronto Int’l Film Festival as its opening night gala premiere. It covers Robertson’s tenure in the Band from the group’s early ’60s origins through that final concert in 1976, famously documented by Martin Scorsese (who serves as an executive producer here). To the survivor as well as the raconteur go the spoils, and Robertson is nothing if not both those things.

“Once Were Brothers” is essentially a movie adaptation of Robertson’s 2016 autobiography, “Testimony: A Memoir.” Just as the book ended with the tale of “The Last Waltz” (he’s working on a sequel now), so the film takes its leave there, too, although “Brothers” does include something he was presumably saving for the second

Patrick Carney on Making the New Black Keys Album and Looking Forward to the Road

Patrick Carney on Making the New Black Keys Album and Looking Forward to the Road
Last August and September were fruitful months for the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney: On August 28th, he and his now-wife, Michelle Branch, had a baby, and on September 5th, he and Dan Auerbach went into the studio to start work on the Keys’ first album in five years. That album, “Let’s Rock,” is out now (Barack Obama just put the track “Go” on his summer playlist), and next month, the Keys will embark on a U.S. arena tour with Modest Mouse.

Lucy in the Sky Trailer #2: Natalie Portman Is an Unhinged Astronaut

  • MovieWeb
Fox Searchlight has released another trailer for Noah Hawley's directorial feature film debut, Lucy in the Sky. Hawley is bringing his surreal style to the big screen with the future Mighty Thor at the forefront in leading lady Natalie Portman.

Lucy in the Sky follows Natalie Portman as Lucy Cola, a strong woman whose determination and drive as an astronaut take her to space where she's deeply moved by the transcendent experience of seeing her life from afar. Back home as lucy's world suddenly feels too small, her connection with reality slowly unravels.

The new trailer encapsulates this "transcendent experience" with Lucy floating peacefully above the earth insisting on "just a few more minutes," because she can see "her life." Stylized images flash across the screen as we get a greater sense of her struggle. She appears to feel separate from the events she lives, and as the trailer continues,

Ajay-Atul tweak iconic theme tune of Kaun Banega Crorepati

Composer duo Ajay-Atul has added a special touch to the iconic tune of the television game show "Kaun Banega Crorepati" (Kbc), hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

"It's an honour for us to be associated with an iconic show as 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. When we were approached for the Kbc tune, the question for us was not what we can do with it, but how much leap could we take with a melody that has already been etched in the minds of millions," the duo said.

"However, we are happy with the new flavour we have managed to infuse. It has an orchestral symphony that makes the original melody sound more epic and magnificent.

Maxo Kream’s Superb, Sprawlingly Autobiographical Album ‘Brandon Banks’

A R.I.C.O. charge dating back to a 2016 arrest still looms over rapper Maxo Kream’s head like a guillotine, but he’s never been more committed to shining a light on the facts of his life. His superb major label debut Brandon Banks is sprawling autobiography overflowing with dense, unflinching, granular detail sourced from his 15-odd years of toting guns, staging robberies, and selling drugs in Southwest Houston. Maxo embraces his inner cartographer, mapping not only the geography of his small corner of Houston but also a

Black Keys back, all right! Reviews are in for ‘Let’s Rock,’ their first album in 5 years

Black Keys back, all right! Reviews are in for ‘Let’s Rock,’ their first album in 5 years
The Black Keys — the rock duo of singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney — are back with their first new album since “True Blue” in 2014. “Let’s Rock” was released on June 28, and it’s their ninth studio album overall. So what do critics think of their comeback?

As of this writing “Let’s Rock” has a MetaCritic score of 73 based on 10 reviews counted so far — seven of them positive, three of them somewhat mixed. To put that in perspective, that’s on par with “Turn Blue’s” score five years ago, but it’s shy of their two most successful albums thus far: 82 for “Brothers” (2010) and 84 for “El Camino” (2011), both of which went double-platinum and won them Grammys. “El Camino” was even nominated for Album of the Year.

Tobey Maguire movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Spider-Man,’ ‘Wonder Boys,’ ‘Seabiscuit’
Happy happy 44th birthday to the great Tobey Maguire on June 27, 2019! The actor, known to audiences around the world as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the first three adaptations of the comic-book hero’s adventures, has had a wide range of acting roles from intense dramas to comedies to even a Western. One of Maguire’s great advantages in getting started was the fact that, from his early days as a child actor, Maguire had a boyish look that allowed him to be cast as characters who were much younger than his own chronological age.

Michael Fassbender and Peter Dinklage in talks to star in Mel Gibson’s ‘The Wild Bunch’ remake

Michael Fassbender, Peter Dinklage and Jamie Foxx have all entered into negotiations to star in Mel Gibson’s remake of ‘The Wild Bunch’.

Gibson takes the helm on the project which he co-wrote with Bryan Bagby. Details of who Fassbender, Dinklage or Foxx will play have not been disclosed.

The original epic western was directed by Sam Peckinpah and starred William Holden, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Ryan, Edmond O’Brien, Warren Oates, Jaime Sánchez and Ben Johnson. It followed an ageing outlaw gang on the Mexico–United States border trying to adapt to the changing modern world of 1913, but things get complicated when they are pursued by a posse led by a former partner they double-crossed.

A Plague Tale: Innocence Review

A Plague Tale: Innocence may be the first game that its developer, Asobo Studio, wanted to make. Their past catalog consists almost entirely of licensed tie-ins and ports, while this title is an original IP set during an underappreciated period of French history, which happens to be Asobo’s country of origin. Moreover, it feels like an idea the team has had swirling in their heads for some time, waiting to be sufficiently financed before introducing it to the world. Unfortunately, this means the gamer zeitgeist has somewhat passed it by, and a game that probably would have turned a lot of heads a half-decade ago is now in danger of being ignored for being merely serviceable. It’s a shame, because the developers’ passion clearly shines through in their product.

It’s a safe bet that any game that has “colossal swarms of rats” as a primary mechanic was

Scarlett Johansson Says Avengers: Endgame’s A Beautiful Valentine To A Decade Of Madness

Avengers: Endgame is being marketed as the culmination point for over a decade of big screen adventures, and as the Avengers: Infinity War sequel brings the current era to a close, you can expect the movie to pay tribute to all that came before it.

In an interview Empire, Scarlett Johansson was asked if she’d seen any footage from Endgame, to which she replied:

“I have. From what I can tell, what’s foremost in the [Russo] Brothers’ minds is really delivering something that is a poetic and beautiful Valentine to a decade of madness.”

It’s long been assumed that Marvel’s Phase 3 finale will contain plenty of nods to the McU’s previous entries, and the last trailer made that all the clearer with its flashbacks to earlier films. How exactly the movie will incorporate all this superhero history into the drama has yet to be confirmed, but for the last year,

Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage to play Brothers in Twins-style comedy

THR is reporting that Avengers: Infinity War co-stars Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage are set to team up for the comedy Brothers, which is in development at Legendary Entertainment.

Scripted by Etan Cohen, the film will see Brolin and Dinklage starring as two unlikely brothers, in a similar vein to the 1988 Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito comedy Twins. Specific plot details are being kept under wraps.

In addition to starring, Brolin and Dinklage will also produce through their Brolin Productions and Esutary Films companies respectively, as will Andrew Lazar (American Sniper).

Brolin will next be seen this April as he reprises the role of Thanos for Avengers: Endgame, while Dinklage returns that same month as Tyrion Lannister for the eighth and final season of HBO’s epic fantasy Game of Thrones.

Peter Dinklage and Josh Brolin team up for comedy ‘Brothers’

  • HeyUGuys
Peter Dinklage and Josh Brolin are to star and produce the new comedy ‘Brothers’ at Legendary Entertainment.

Just from the title alone, you could probably guess where the film’s storyline is going. Brolin and Dinklage will play unlikely brothers in a film that is said to harken tonally to Ivan Reitman’s 1988 Schwarzenegger/DeVito comedy ‘Twins’. Plot specifics, however, are being kept top secret for the time being.

‘Holmes and Watson’ and ‘Tropic Thunder’ scribe, Ethan Cohen will pen the script. Andrew Lazar will produce alongside Brolin who is producing via his shingle, Brolin Productions, and Dinklage through his Estuary Films company. Estuary’s David Ginsberg will also produce.

Peter Dinklage and Josh Brolin are Brothers in New Comedy

Kirsten Howard Mar 1, 2019

This sounds fun, but...it's from the writer of Holmes and Watson.

It seems Etan Cohen, the man behind last year's critically-savaged Holmes And Watson, didn't fail hard enough with that Razzie-scooper. The film, which reunited the Step Brothers duo of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, technically kinda broke even, but with marketing factored in, it was a collar-heater overall for Sony.

Cohen's new script, Brothers, was recently the central prize of a bidding war that ended in Legendary's favor, and now it has two tantalizing actors attached in the pairing of Infinity War's Thanos and Eitri the Dwarf King, aka Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage. We didn't see the two have to deal with each other on screen in that film, but we will in Brothers, and the basic idea of seeing them together playing siblings does sound like a whole ton of fun, but
