Michelle Williams movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Brokeback Mountain,’ ‘My Week with Marilyn’
Michelle Williams has always gone her own way. The Montana-born actress was legally emancipated from her parents at age 15 so that she could better pursue her acting career and pursue it she did. By age 18, she was starring in the popular TV drama “Dawson’s Creek,” in which she played Meg, a loose big-city teen who relocates to small-town life. In her time away from the TV series, she acted in many small independent films, none of which connected until 2003, when one finally did — Tom McCarthy‘s “The Station Agent,” in which she played a small-town librarian who becomes close to a socially-withdrawn dwarf (Peter Dinklage). That performance earned Williams her first SAG Awards nomination for Best Ensemble.

‘The House With A Clock In Its Walls’ Trailer & Images Reveal Eli Roth’s Latest

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for The House With a Clock in its Walls, the latest film from director Eli Roth. The family-friendly magical adventure film follows a 10 year old boy who goes to live with his uncle (Jack Black) in “a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart”. When a series of witches and warlocks jolt’s the town’s sleepy facade to life, the boy and his uncle get caught up in a magical adventure.

Although Roth’s latest effort, Death Wish, opened to a disappointing box office and middling reviews at the beginning of the month, this film seems to taking the genre director into completely new territory. And based on this trailer, it also seems to be a breath of fresh air. In addition to Black, The House with a Clock in Its Walls also stars Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp,

At Saturday’s Cinema Audio Society Awards, “Dunkirk” edged out three of its Oscar rivals for Best Sound Mixing — “Baby Driver,” “The Shape of Water” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” — as well as “Wonder Woman” for the top award. The Cas snubbed “Blade Runner: 2049,” which won big with the Motion Picture Sound Editors on Feb. 18

This win for “Dunkirk” does not guarantee that it will take home the Oscar. Only 12 of the 24 winners with the Cas have repeated at the Academy Awards.

Darren Aronofsky, James Marsh, and More Remember ‘Brilliant’ Composer Jóhann Jóhannsson

Darren Aronofsky, James Marsh, and More Remember ‘Brilliant’ Composer Jóhann Jóhannsson
Directors who worked with Jóhann Jóhannsson are mourning the loss of the Icelandic composer, who died of unknown causes on February 9. The recipient of back-to-back Oscar nominations in 2015 (“The Theory of Everything,” for which he won a Golden Globe) and 2016 (“Sicario”), Jóhannsson was 48 years old.

“I am devastated,” “The Theory of Everything” director James Marsh wrote in an email to IndieWire. “I’ve lost a dear friend and we have all lost the beautiful music he carried within him. Jóhann was a brilliant and unique artist. His personality is alive in his music — thoughtful, inquisitive, gracious, idiosyncratic, sometimes melancholy, sometimes witty and above all, pure.”

Jóhannsson also composed the score for “The Mercy,” directed by Marsh and based on the true story of Donald Crowhurst (Colin Firth), a British amateur sailor who died while competing in a globe-crossing yacht race in 1969; it was released this weekend in the UK and Australia.

'Altered Carbon': Inside the Drama's 15-Year Road to Netflix

After a 15-year path to the screen, Altered Carbon will officially launch Friday on Netflix.

The 10-episode drama, based on Richard K. Morgan's 2002 novel, has taken what could generously be called a meandering route to the screen. Although the film rights were optioned by Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver the same year as its publication, the project remained in development purgatory for nearly a decade.

Only after the studio's option expired did it find a savior in Laeta Kalogridis, the screenwriter whose muscular filmography includes such films as Shutter Island, Terminator Genisys and the forthcoming manga adaptation Alita:...

Horror-On-Sea 2018 Interview: Ryan Wichert on ‘The Redeeming’

The Redeeming is new psychological thriller which was selected to play at the Horror-on-Sea Film Festival on Sunday 28th January. I got chance to ask actor Ryan Wichert a few questions about how he first got involved in the film, filming during one of the worst storms to hit the UK in two decades and his most memorable moments during filming.

What can we expect from the film?

The Redeeming is a gripping psychological thriller for fans of films like Don’t Breathe, Blue Ruin and Get Out. It’s made in the style of classics, such as Shutter Island, Misery and Psycho. It’s the story of how disturbed single mother Joyce (Tracey Ann Wood) must confront mysterious stranger John (Ryan Wichert) to protect her home, but her struggle to hold onto her sanity could doom them both.

How did you first get involved in The Redeeming and what attracted you to the project?

Movie Review – Inoperable (2017)

Inoperable, 2017.

Directed by Christpher Lawrence Chapman.

Starring Danielle Harris, Katie Keene, Jeff Denton, and Isabella Sofia Menna.

Synopsis:

A young woman wakes up in a seemingly evacuated hospital with a hurricane approaching that has awakened malevolent forces inside. She realizes she must escape the hospital before the hurricane passes, or she will be trapped there forever.

Horror films these days are struggling against a tide of half-hearted, lazy formula tropes, or easy outs such as relentless gore. For a sub-section of genre fans, a good gorno is the significant box that needs checking. The other bits don’t matter so much. It’s always a pleasant surprise to see some more elaborate concepts. Whether they succeed or fail, I always do appreciate if a film tries something. Inoperable does just that.

Now I won’t say it’s wholly original, but it takes elements from say Groundhog Day, mixed with
