Galveston Trailer Has Elle Fanning and Ben Foster on the Run

Galveston Trailer Has Elle Fanning and Ben Foster on the Run
Melanie Laurent steps behind the camera for Galveston, taking True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto's novel of the same name to the big screen. Laurent took on the American crime thriller because she was initially intrigued to make it from the standpoint of being a European filmmaker, and took on the challenge to make it in a French style. The film stars Ben Foster and Elle Fanning, and from the looks of the first full-length trailer, things get out of hand pretty quickly.

Ben Foster's Roy character is described as "a heavy-drinking criminal enforcer and mob hit man" in Galveston. Things go south when Roy's boss sets him up. However, Roy is able to kill his assassins before they can kill him, and then discovers Elle Fanning's Rocky character. Rocky is a young woman being held captive, and Roy decides against his better judgement to help her. They're on the

'Galveston' Trailer: Ben Foster and Elle Fanning Team Up for Drama Based on "True Detective" Creator’s Novel

'Galveston' Trailer: Ben Foster and Elle Fanning Team Up for Drama Based on
Though best known for her roles in films like Inglourious Basterds and Beginners, Mélanie Laurent has proven to be as impressive behind the camera as she is in front of it. Her fourth narrative feature is a crime thriller based on "True Detective" creator Nic Pizzolatto’s novel of the same name starring Elle Fanning, Ben Foster, and Lili Reinhart, which is to say there’s a lot of talent involved in this story of a hitman who returns to his hometown of (you guessed it) Galveston, Texas after a heist gone wrong.

After premiering at South by Southwest earlier this year, Galveston is currently at the Los Angeles Film Festival. It arrives in theaters and on VOD on October 19.

‘Operation Finale’ Film Review: Strong Ensemble Infuses Passion Into Conventional Retelling of Adolf Eichmann’s Capture

‘Operation Finale’ Film Review: Strong Ensemble Infuses Passion Into Conventional Retelling of Adolf Eichmann’s Capture
Ben Kingsley has embodied Jewish heroes as iconic as Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal (“Murderers Among Us”), Anne Frank’s father Otto (“Anne Frank: The Whole Story”), and businessman Itzhak Stern (“Schindler’s List”). In “Operation Finale,” he adopts another perspective altogether, portraying the ultimate villain in Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann.

The innately intense Kingsley isn’t an ideal match for the mild-mannered murderer who inspired philosopher Hannah Arendt to coin the phrase “the banality of evil.” But like the rest of the cast, he holds our attention even when the movie buckles under the burden of earnest intentions.

Once you get past the jarring collection of mismatched accents, it’s a pleasure to be in the company of pros like Oscar Isaac, Mélanie Laurent (“Beginners”), Nick Kroll, and Michael Aronov (“The Americans”). But as Mossad agents, their characters find little pleasure in the task designed by their intimidating boss

Melanie Laurent Joins Michael Bay’s ‘6 Underground’ for Netflix
French actress Melanie Laurent has joined the cast of Michael Bay’s “6 Underground” for Netflix and Skydance Media, the streaming giant announced Wednesday. U.S.-born Iranian actor Payman Maadi has also joined the production, which will start shooting later this month.

An actor and director in her native France, Laurent is best known to international audiences for her breakout lead role as the vengeance-seeking Shosanna in Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 film “Inglourious Basterds.” Other English-language roles have included Mike Mills’ “Beginners” and Denis Villenueve’s “Enemy.” Laurent most recently co-starred opposite Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin in French period comedy “Return of the Hero.” She’ll next be seen in Chris Weitz’s English-language true-story drama “Operation Finale,” which stars Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley.

Maadi, who starred in Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar-winning Iranian drama “A Separation,” previously worked with Bay on the 2016 film “13 Hours.”

Elle Fanning and Ben Foster Go on the Run in First Teaser for Melanie Laurent’s ‘Galveston’

Although best knowing on the acting side for Inglourious Basterds, Enemy, Beginners, and more, Mélanie Laurent has also been a prolific force in the director’s the last few years. Coming off her excellent drama Breathe, she helmed the French-language drama Plonger and then brought her English-language debut Galveston, starring Elle Fanning and Ben Foster, to SXSW. Based on the book from True Detective writer Nic Pizzolatto, the crime thriller will arrive in France this fall and now the first teaser has landed.

Unfortunately, our own John Fink wasn’t a big fan of it, saying in his SXSW review, “Something feels a bit off or perhaps lost in translation as the film shifts from dreamy landscapes and parting glances to ultraviolent single-take scenes that jar us out of the seductive fantasy. The director, who proved more than adept behind the camera with Breathe, doesn’t seem terribly in control

'Boundaries' Review: Road-Trip Dramedy Gets Boost From Grumpy Old Plummer

'Boundaries' Review: Road-Trip Dramedy Gets Boost From Grumpy Old Plummer
Let us now praise Christopher Plummer, the 88-year-old actor, Oscar winner and professional savior of nearly scuttled prestige projects. He's played everyone from Rommel to Kipling, Mike Wallace to Sherlock Holmes; played everything from New World imperialists to old-world explorers, tycoons to Klingons. Maybe your favorite Plummer is the singing-family patriarch of The Sound of Music, a film he'll never be able to escape no matter how many times he flees across those alive hills; maybe it's the diabolical wolf-in-Santa-Claus-clothing in The Silent Partner, a Seventies heist movie ripe for rediscovery,

‘The Shining’ Sequel Casts Ewan McGregor as Danny Torrance

“Come play with us Danny. Forever…..and ever……and ever.” Ewan McGregor will lead Doctor Sleep, Warner Bros.’ adaptation of Stephen King’s The Shining sequel, as reported by Variety. The Beginners star will play an aged Danny Torrance, who we originally met in Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror masterpiece The Shining, which starred Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall.

A note to the skeptics: Mr. King has reportedly “given his blessing to McGregor’s casting.”

Doctor Sleep will be directed by Mike Flanagan – who has previously adapted King’s Gerald’s Game for Netflix, along with other horror pictures Hush, Ouija: Origin of Evil, and Oculus. Flanagan’s frequent collaborative partner Trevor Macy will produce alongside Vertigo Entertainment’s Jon Berg.

Following the events of that one fateful night at the Overlook Hotel, Doctor Sleep tells the story of Danny Torrance and the trauma he’s internalized from his childhood. His

Sam Rockwell Wins the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the 2018 Academy Awards

Sam Rockwell Wins the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the 2018 Academy Awards
It takes a strong man to play a supporting role, and the Oscars honored “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” star Sam Rockwell for that role during the 2018 ceremony, winning over fellow nominees Willem Dafoe (“The Florida Project”), Woody Harrelson (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Richard Jenkins (“The Shape of Water”), and Christopher Plummer (“All the Money in the World”).

Rockwell’s speech praised his parents’ love of movies and thanked “anyone who’s ever looked at a billboard.” He was the frontrunner coming into Sunday’s awards, as he was a force for his portrayal of an, um, “complicated” small town police officer, whose personality flaws include deeply embedded racism. The “Charlie’s Angels” breakout star had previously won nearly every trophy for which he was nominated this Oscar season, including the Golden Globe, BAFTA, and SAG Award.

Independent Spirit Awards 2018: Will Armie Hammer (‘Call Me by Your Name’) be avenged after Oscar snub?
Armie Hammer earned Golden Globe and Critics’ choice nominations for his performance in “Call Me by Your Name” as a grad student who falls in love with his professor’s son (Timothee Chalamet), but then Hammer was overlooked by the SAG Awards, BAFTAs and Oscars. However, there’s still one event where Hammer could be avenged: the Independent Spirit Awards, which will be handed out the night before the Oscars. He’s a dark horse contender with 10/1 odds according to our latest predictions.

As of this writing Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) has the lead for Best Supporting Actor with 2/11 odds after dominating the awards season with victories at the Globes, Critics’ Choice Awards, SAG Awards and BAFTAs. He’s the favorite for the Oscar as well, but perhaps that will actually help Hammer at the Spirit Awards. “Call Me” is the most nominated film at these awards with six bids,

Christopher Plummer movies: 12 greatest films ranked from worst to best

Christopher Plummer movies: 12 greatest films ranked from worst to best
Stage, film, television. For well over over five decades, Christopher Plummer has been one of our most esteemed and honored actors across all acting fields. He has won two Tony awards (out of seven nominations) for his stage work — the musical “Cyrano” (1974) and the one-man show “Barrymore” (1997), which was later turned into a film. For his television work, he has also won two Emmy Awards (out of six nominations) for the TV movie “Arthur Hailey’s The Moneychangers” (1977) and for his voice-over performance in the animated “Madeline” (1994).

But similar awards for his work in film eluded him for many years. True, he did co-star in 1965’s “The Sound of Music,” a film he had disdained for the longest time but one that was a phenomenon at the box-office. The musical ran in theaters for over 4 1/2 years and, adjusted for inflation, “The Sound of Music” has grossed $2.366 billion, currently making it

2018 Oscars: Christopher Plummer (‘All the Money in the World’) gunning to be seventh person to win Best Supporting Actor twice

2018 Oscars: Christopher Plummer (‘All the Money in the World’) gunning to be seventh person to win Best Supporting Actor twice
Christopher Plummer’s last-minute casting and reshoot for “All the Money in the World” resulted in a third Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for him — all in the last decade and all while he’s in his 80s. Should Plummer upset frontrunner Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), he’d join a small group of two-time champs in the category.

While Walter Brennan holds the category record with three wins — which he bagged in the first five years of the award — six men have bookend Best Supporting Actor statuettes: Anthony Quinn (1952’s “Viva Zapata!” and 1956’s “Lust for Life”), Peter Ustinov (1960’s “Spartacus” and 1964’s “Topkapi”), Melvin Douglas (1963’s “Hud” and 1979’s “Being There”), Jason Robards (1976’s “All the President’s Men” and 1977’s “Julia”), Michael Caine (1986’s “Hannah and Her Sisters” and 1999 “The Cider House Rules”) and Christoph Waltz (2009’s “Inglourious Basterds” and 2012’s Django Unchained”).

Oscars 2018: Timothee Chalamet or Richard Jenkins would be only the 3rd actor to win for Lgbt character who lives to tell the tale
It’s no secret that Hollywood still has a long way to go with regard to its representation of Lgbt characters despite recent advances made by films like “Brokeback Mountain” (2005), “Moonlight” (2016) and “Call Me by Your Name” (2017). This year two actors could win for playing Lgbt characters: Timothee Chalamet (Best Actor for “Call Me”) and Richard Jenkins (Best Supporting Actor for “The Shape of Water”). They wouldn’t be the first to win for queer characters — far from it — but if either wins he’d be only the third who lived to tell the tale.

The academy has a problematic history of reserving its trophies for Lgbt characters who die tragically. There have been 11 acting winners who played explicitly queer roles: William Hurt (Best Actor for “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” 1985), Tom Hanks (Best Actor for “Philadelphia,” 1993), Hilary Swank (Best Actress for “Boys Don’t Cry,” 1999), Nicole Kidman (Best Actress for “The Hours,

Oscars flashback: Watch as Christopher Plummer confesses he was rehearsing his acceptance speech since birth
Christopher Plummer had to wait until his eighties to receive any attention from Oscar voters. The long-awaited first nomination for the 2010 film “The Last Station” followed an acclaimed career in “The Sound of Music,” “The Man Who Would Be King,” “Somewhere in Time,” and “The Insider.” Even with the sympathy vote and at his age, he wouldn’t win that night, losing to Christoph Waltz in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” for Best Supporting Actor.

However, two years later, Plummer was offered the plum role of Hal in the indie dramedy Beginners starring Ewan McGregor. It was that role that did bring Plummer his first (and only, so far) Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He played an elderly man dying of cancer who reveals to his son that he is gay with a young male lover.
