Hey, James Franco: See who else has been snubbed at Oscars despite Globe, SAG, Critics’ Choice nominations

This year, 15 performers reaped bids at all three key precursor prizes — the SAG, Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice awards. Such recognition certainly warrants getting up early on Oscar nominations mornings. But as James Franco (“The Disaster Artist”) and Hong Chau (“Downsizing”) found out, reaping bids for that triple crown still didn’t make them sure things in the Oscars derby. They became the most recent of the 21 performers to stumble at the last hurdle and suffer an Oscar snub since the Critics’ Choice Awards introduced nominations in 2001.

Franco should take comfort from the case of Leonardo DiCaprio, who finally won an Oscar two years ago for “The Revenant” after four losses. There were two instances when he didn’t even reap an Oscar nomination despite having done well in the run-up awards. He was spurned by the actors branch of the academy for his leading performance in “J. Edgar” (2011) and

‘Racer and the Jailbird’ Review: Matthias Schoenaerts and Adèle Exarchopoulos Bring Chemistry to Average Heist Movie — Tiff

‘Racer and the Jailbird’ Review: Matthias Schoenaerts and Adèle Exarchopoulos Bring Chemistry to Average Heist Movie — Tiff
Racer and the Jailbird” has all the makings of an elegant, old-school heist movie: fast cars, romance, high stakes, and beautiful people. The third feature from Belgian genre director Michael Roskum (“Bullhead,” “The Drop”) shows a strong eye for emulating those traditions, while co-stars Adèle Exarchopoulos and Matthias Schoenaerts bring a palpable sexual chemistry to the tragic relationship at its center. Yet no matter the sleek direction and skillful performances towing it along, “Racer and the Jailbird” struggles to make much out of its scenario that isn’t already evident from the opening act.

Nevertheless, the movie’s accessible drama holds water for some time, competently establishing the central couple as an appealing cinematic pair. Petite speed racer Bénédicte (Exarchopoulos) wows crowds at a local race track where the beefy Gino (Schoenaerts) finds her after one rousing triumph. He leaves an impression, the way the hyper-masculine Schoenaerts usually does, making

Berlinale: Mister Smith Entertainment Takes International Sales on Terrence Malick’s ‘Radegund’
London-based Mister Smith Entertainment has acquired international sales rights to Terrence Malick’s “Radegund,” picking up what is sure to be one of the high-profile movies at next month’s European Film Market alongside the Berlin Film Festival.

Marking Malick’s return to World War II two decades after “The Thin Red Line,” “Radegund” tells the true story of Franz Jaegerstaetter, an Austrian farmer who, after Germany annexed Austria in 1938, refused to fight for the Third Reich. Written by Malick, the story is told through a series of real wartime letters between Jaegerstaetter and his wife, with Jaegerstaetter’s opposition to the Third Reich placing the couple at odds with members of their town, church and government.

August Diehl (“Inglourious Basterds”) plays Jaegerstaetter; Valerie Pachner (“Egon SchieleDeath and the Maiden”) plays his wife, Fani; and Matthias Schoenaerts (“Rust and Bone”) plays Captain Herder.

Genre, Thrillers Stage A Comeback in France

Genre, Thrillers Stage A Comeback in France
Paris – Daouda Coulibaly’s Mali-set “Wulu,” Sebastian Marnier’s “Faultless”and Thomas Kruithof’s “The Eavesdropper” form part of a gaggle of crime thrillers and sci-fi/fantasy movies unspooling at the 19th UniFrance Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, France’s annual national film showcase.

In volume, they do not represent the most numerous film type at that market; that crown belongs to comedies, accounting for 32 of the 76 movies screening there. But some of the crime thrillers are among the best-reviewed films at Rendez-Vous.

“Who doesn’t love a good sociopath? In novelist-director Sébastien Marnier’s feature debut “Faultless,” he conjures up a doozy,” Variety wrote, calling “The Eavesdropper” (aka “Scribe”) “a timely political thriller told with flair” and “Wulu” “an auspicious debut.”

These suspense titles are joined at the Rendez-Vous by “Seuls” (“Alone”), a bold departure for French cinema, a fantasy teen survival thriller from “It Boy” director David Moreau, and “Toril,

Marion Cotillard (Courtesy: Rob Kim/Getty Images)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Marion Cotillard has been in the business since the age of 18 and, within the more than two decades of churning out more than 50 feature movies, has rarely — if ever — turned in a bad performance no matter which role she inhabits. And now, with Allied set to hit theaters on November 23, the French-born actress is expected to wow us once more.

Allied, which is directed by Robert Zemeckis, stars Cotillard as a French Resistance fighter named Marianne Beausejour and Brad Pitt as an intelligence officer in North Africa named Max Vatan who begin a relationship while behind enemy lines.

Edward Norton On Why Method Acting Is Misunderstood — Hamptons Film Festival

Edward Norton On Why Method Acting Is Misunderstood — Hamptons Film Festival
Anyone watching movies for the last 20-plus years knows the work of Edward Norton: Whether it’s his Oscar-nominated turns in “American History X” and “Birdman,” his iconic turn in “Fight Club,” or fan favorites “The Illusionist” and “The 25th Hour,” Norton’s ubiquity has made him a fixture in American cinema.

Needless to say, the actor has spent the last two decades building up one hell of a resume, which is exactly why he was honored for a career achievement award at this year’s Hamptons International Film Festival. Luckily for everyone at the festival, Norton made some time to talk with storied New York film critic David Edelstein to a crowd of 500 or so people, where he dug into some of his influences and brought up some academic criticisms of acting as an art form today.
