2019 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: #12. Robin Bissell – The Best of Enemies

An executive producer on Free State of Jones and The Hunger Games, Robin Bissell doesn’t appear to be the usual Park City suspect, but there are always a debut title … or two, that are larger in scope, and from those not wet behind the ears. The Best of Enemies fits that bill. The project dates back to June of 2015, when Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell were attached and would only begin filming two years later in Georgia. Stx Entertainment liked what they saw and last month they released the first trailer. Anne Heche, Wes Bentley, Bruce McGill, John Gallagher Jr., and Nick Searcy make up the supporting cast.…

Oscar predictions slugfest 2019: Will Lady Gaga be crowned ‘queen of Hollywood’ like Jennifer Lawrence was? [Video & Audio Podcast]

Oscar predictions slugfest 2019: Will Lady Gaga be crowned ‘queen of Hollywood’ like Jennifer Lawrence was? [Video & Audio Podcast]
“I would argue that the most egregious Oscar snub was when Judy Garland lost Best Actress for her ‘Star is Born’ to Grace Kelly,” says Gold Derby editor Paul Sheehan. Can Lady Gaga “right that wrong” by winning for her version of “A Star is Born“? That’s what Gold Derby founder Tom O’Neil thinks, although he’s “tempted every three seconds” to switch to Olivia Colman (“The Favourite“). Watch Sheehan, O’Neil and Daniel Montgomery debate the Best Actress race in the slugfest video above or listen to the audio podcast version below. See our latest prediction rankings for Best Actress here.

“Lady Gaga is at a point in her pop culture trajectory like Jennifer Lawrence was when she won for ‘Silver Linings Playbook,'” O’Neil argues. “When Jennifer Lawrence won it was a crown. She was the queen of Hollywood, and the academy placed that tiara on her head.

Review: Overlord Takes You Through a Nightmarishly Awesome WWII House of Horrors

If you’re looking for an extremely fun horror action-thriller filled with all kinds of gratuitous blood and gore, Overlord is the film for you!

I enjoyed everything that I’ve seen from the film in the trailers that have been released, but they don’t even scratch the surface of how much of an insane wild ride that this movie is! Overlord is an absolute blast and I know horror fans are going to enjoy the hell out of it.

The story is set during World War II and follows members of the 101st Airborn Division dropping into Germany to take down a radio tower located in a church. The movie starts out with one of the most intense sequences that I’ve seen in any WWII movie as the paratroopers are flying into Germany.

As I was watching the film I was thinking, “Damn! This would just make

IndieWire Honors Video: Amandla Stenberg Only Used to Be Offered Roles Like ‘Daughter of Drug Dealer’ and ‘Hood Girl No. 2’ — That’s Changed
On November 1, the 2018 IndieWire Honors ceremony celebrated eight filmmakers and actors for their achievement in creative independence. We’re showcasing their work with new interviews conducted right before they accepted their awards at the event.

Amandla Stenberg knew “The Hate U Give” was special from the beginning. “It has been timely for a long time, and I think it will continue to be timely for a while,” she said during an interview at IndieWire Honors last week. “A story about police brutality will probably be relevant for a while.”

Stenberg received a Performance Award at the event, which also toasted the likes of Bill Hader, Ryan Coogler, and Charlize Theron, among others. She leads George Tillman Jr.’s adaptation of the novel by Angie Thomas as Starr, a 16-year-old who watches her best friend get killed by a police officer; Stenberg’s breakout performance comes on the heels of similarly

New Hollywood Podcast: Amandla Stenberg Talks ‘The Hate U Give’, Code Switching And Using Your Voice
The term “woke” is being thrown around casually these days. There are times when the use of the word is warranted and other times when it is just used as fashionable rhetoric as a veneer to make you look socially aware. But if there is one actress who embodies the term, it’s Amandla Stenberg — but her advocacy and activism aren’t forced, precious or trendy. It’s quiet, effortlessly authentic, thoughtful and reflected in her work and her voice…which is very similar to her character in the 20th Century Fox movie The Hate U Give.

Many may remember Stenberg as the fan-favorite character Rue in The Hunger Games, but shortly after, she made a video titled “Don’t Cash Crop My Cornrows: A Crash Discourse in Black Culture” that broke down the meaning of cultural appropriation. It went viral and made many think twice about how white celebrities like Kendall Jenner,

Overlord review – nasty second world war action-horror fantasy

This bizarre and gruesome tale of an allied assault on a church in Nazi-occupied France leaves an unpleasant taste

This gruesome film has arrived like some particularly nasty new version of Call of Duty, destined to be played for days at a time by a regrettable, and clearly unrepresentative gaming subset of pale, dead-eyed loners. It is a bizarre, and weirdly humourless and explicit action-horror fantasy set during the second world war – specifically just before the D-day landings, hence the title, derived from Operation Overlord, you see.

It is written by Billy Ray (who scripted Captain Phillips and The Hunger Games) and directed by Australian film-maker Julius Avery, all working from an original concept from producer Jj Abrams – the idea being to make some money from a customer base which might loosely be described as incels and incel fellow travellers.

Hunger Games: 20 Things That Make No Sense About Katniss

Katniss Everdeen is something of an oddity among Ya heroines. At first glance, the protagonist of The Hunger Games may seem typical, given that she lives in a dystopia, every other character tells her she's special, and she's in the middle of a love triangle. Look closer and you'll find that author Suzanne Collins imbued Katniss with some traits that set her completely apart. The series, both in the books and the films, find Katniss taking a harsh, relentless, and ultimately unforgiving hero's journey.

By deciding to focus on Katniss' struggle to make her own choices in the middle of a war between two sides that both value her image-- but not her humanity-- Collins broke new ground in the Ya genre. Katniss goes through a gauntlet, winding up with classic symptoms of Ptsd by the end. The series never flinches away from depicting the harsh reality that if a

Trailer For The Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth's Meta Rom Com Isn't It Romantic

Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect) and Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) have teamed up to star in a new romantic comedy called Isn’t It Romantic and today we have a trailer for you to watch… if you want to. It’s not like I’m not going to force you to watch a trailer for a rom com.

The movie was directed by Todd Strauss Schulson, who previously directed the fantastic 2015 horror film Final Girls. I didn’t expect his next film to be this! I will say, though, that the movie actually does looks pretty amusing and kinda charming.

This is a meta rom com and here’s the official synopsis for it:

New York City architect Natalie works hard to get noticed at her job, but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. And if things weren’t bad enough,

Ridley Scott Is Circling to Direct ‘Gladiator’ Sequel for Paramount
Ridley Scott is eyeing a “Gladiator” sequel to direct for Paramount and has set Peter Craig to write the screenplay, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

The first “Gladiator” movie, which was released in 2000, garnered 11 Oscar nominations and five wins, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Russell Crowe. The film raked in $460 million at the global box office.

The story for the sequel would focus on Lucius, the son of Lucilla (who was played by Connie Nielsen in the 2000 film) who was saved by Maximus (Russell Crowe) by the end of the first film.

DreamWorks was the studio behind the original 2000 film and Paramount is currently in negotiations to land the project. Universal, which co-produced the 2000 film, has the option to come on board as co-financier.

George Tillman Jr. on Amandla Stenberg: ‘Her Wholehearted Focus and Surrender to the Character’ Inspires — IndieWire Honors
On November 1, the 2018 IndieWire Honors ceremony will celebrate seven filmmakers and actors for their achievement in creative independence. We’re showcasing their work with new interviews and tributes from their peers all week.

Like many moviegoers, “Soul Food” director George Tillman Jr. took note of Amandla Stenberg after her turn in “The Hunger Games,” but their recent collaboration on “The Hate U Give” solidified his appreciation of her talent. Tillman shared the following thoughts on Stenberg’s abilities with IndieWire’s Kate Erbland.

When I first read the unpublished manuscript of Angie Thomas’ “The Hate U Give” in January 2016, I was speechless. It was deeply personal and I hadn’t felt moved like that in a long time. It was as if someone had written the story of my own life as a black man growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I knew from that moment that this was a movie I had to direct.

Rebel Wilson is stuck in a rom-com in trailer for Isn’t It Romantic

Warner Bros. has debuted the first trailer for director Todd Strauss-Schulson’s upcoming comedy Isn’t It Romantic which stars Rebel Wilson as Natalie, a woman with a very cynical view on love who finds herself living her worst nightmare as the leading lady in her own romantic comedy. Also featuring in the cast are Wilson’s Pitch Perfect co-star Adam Devine, as well as Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) and Priyanka Chopra (Baywatch).

New York City architect Natalie works hard to get noticed at her job but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. And if things weren’t bad enough, Natalie, a lifelong cynic when it comes to love, has an encounter with a mugger that renders her unconscious, waking to discover that her life has suddenly become her worst nightmare—a romantic comedy—and she is the leading lady.

Amandla Stenberg Isn’t Just Looking for ‘Multidimensional Black Characters’ to Play, She’s Creating Them — IndieWire Honors
On November 1, the 2018 IndieWire Honors ceremony will celebrate seven filmmakers and actors for their achievement in creative independence. We’re showcasing their work with new interviews this week.

Less than a decade into her career, actress Amandla Stenberg has already enjoyed at least two breakthrough moments, from her heartbreaking turn as the ill-fated young tribute Rue in “The Hunger Games” to her life-changing leading role in the recent big screen adaptation of “The Hate U Give.” Based on Angie Thomas’ timely bestseller of the same name, George Tillman Jr.’s film is built on Stenberg’s capable shoulders, casting the actress as Starr Carter, a clever teenager forced to live in two very different worlds, both of which come crashing down after a horrific crime.

“She’s allowed to be so multidimensional in a way most black characters are not,” the actress said in a recent interview with IndieWire. “She is so nuanced and real.

Afm Hot List: 10 Titles Set to Heat Up the Market

The American Film Market is changing. With the collapse of the home entertainment market and the disruption of the traditional theatrical business — Disney and Fox merging to concentrate studio power at one end, Netflix and Amazon at the other, cannibalizing the audience for midlevel genre and art house films — the big, A-list projects (think Twilight, The Expendables or The Hunger Games) are few and far between.

“It doesn't fell like many giant packages floating around, those $25 million-$30 million dramas, or the $60 million plus action movies, those are hard to make these days,” says Jonathan Kier ...
