Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the amazing run director Denis Villeneuve is on. He showed the world that Jake Gyllenhaal can go dark with Prisoners and Enemy, Sicario was one of the best films of 2015 and next year, Villeneuve has the long-awaited Blade Runner sequel hitting theaters. For now, we’ll have to make do
For better and worse, The Girl on the Train will always be tied to Gone Girl. Paula Hawkins’s debut novel was almost immediately anointed “this year’s Gone Girl.” To this day, The Girl on The Train is still compared – unfavorably – to Gone Girl. Such was the case for the book, and now is the case for
A lot of great stuff happened in 2015. Star Wars is back (and pretty cool again), James Bond returned, Fargo was better than ever … choosing only 15 great things from the year wasn’t the easiest task in the world. But when one decides to write about 15 – and only 15 – great
SICARIO is one of the year’s grittiest — and best — films.
After watching Kingsman: The Secret Service, it had me thinking…which actors and actress could be perfect Kingsmen?
We’re at that point, folks. Oscar nominations drop tomorrow, and for the first time ever, every category will have an official announcement. (In years past, many “smaller” categories were announced by way of press release.) Of course, this means that we have to predict who will get in – and
We’ll have lots to talk about on Monday – the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and Writers Guild of America (WGA) nominations and the nominees for the USC Scripter Award. But for now, let’s take a stab at what will happen at the Golden Globes on Sunday
How many saw this coming? J.C. Chandor’s crime drama A Most Violent Year unexpectedly won the National Board of Review’s (NBR) awards for film, director, actor for Oscar Isaac (who tied with the Birdman’s Michael Keaton) and supporting actress for Jessica Chastain. Less surprising were the honors bestowed by the
The Independent Spirit Award nominations hit on Tuesday, and as always, they’re a hot topic of conversation. Birdman leads with six nominations, while Boyhood, Nightcrawler, and Selma are just behind with five bids each. But eligible awards contenders like The Imitation Game and Wild were nowhere to be found. It’s
The “official” kickoff of the awards season may have been last week, but it more or less showed us that Robert Duvall, Chris Rock, and Shailene Woodley will hit the campaign trail harder than we expected… Regardless, the awards part of awards season kicks off over the next two weeks.
It’s the time of the year many movie lovers fear but fills others with cheer. Folks, the season’s kicking into gear. Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman hits theaters across the United States this weekend, while Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash gets an expansion to about 400 screens. Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher and Tommy Lee
Stiles White’s low-budget horror flick Ouija barely won the weekend box office over Nightcrawler – Dan Gilroy’s takedown of today’s entertainment press, but the real story of the weekend is Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman. Following raves out of the Venice Film Festival, Telluride Film Festival, and New York Film Festival,
In honor of its DVD release, I have ranked the three titles Edge of Tomorrow test drove during the course of its production and marketing.
We already knew that Disney had big plans for Into the Woods – Rob Marshall’s big-budget adaptation of the classic Stephen Sondheim musical – but plans for the Oscar campaign now seem settled (though everything is always subject to change): Emily Blunt and James Corden – who play the Baker’s
Tom Cruise returns to the big screen, fighting aliens once again.
Live. Die. Repeat. In three words, that is the premise of Edge of Tomorrow, a new action-packed science fiction film headlined by Tom Cruise. These three words even make up the film’s Twitter hashtag and flash repeatedly throughout the trailer. They summarize the film in a nutshell: each day, Bill
