Steve Jobs

Danny Boyle crossed over to the small screen with Babylon in 2014, and it looks like he’s eager to come back for more. Even as he preps his next movie, Trainspotting 2, he’s scored a ten-episode order from FX for Trust, a based-on-a-true-story limited series about the Getty family (as in Getty Oil, the Getty Museum, and Balthazar Getty). Many more details about the Danny Boyle FX series below.  Read More »

We’re big fans of Steve Jobs at the site. Director Danny Boyle‘s (Slumdog Millionaire) unconventional biopic was no. 5 on our top 15 of 2015, and for good reason. The breathlessly paced, intricately structured, and impeccably acted drama avoided so many pitfalls that plague modern bio films.

Steve Jobs didn’t leave much of a dent at the box-office, but no matter, the film is coming to Blu-Ray, meaning more people will discover screenwriter Aaron Sorkin‘s drama soon.

To celebrate the Blu-Ray release, watch a Steve Jobs featurette below.

Emma Stone as Billie Jean King

There are currently three movies in the works about Billie Jean King. The one potential version that appears closer to first reaching theaters is the Fox Searchlight production called Battle of the Sexes, directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine), which has Danny Boyle (Steve Jobs) attached as a producer.

Steve Jobs

Despite an impressive cast, glowing reviews, and a promising limited debut, Steve Jobs flopped hard when it went wide. In the days and weeks that followed, pundits both amateur and professional offered their best theories on why the film had failed commercially, with explanations ranging from poor timing to a lack of star power.

Now director Danny Boyle has offered his two cents as well. As he sees it, the film rolled out wide too soon, not giving it time to build momentum. However, he’s quick to clarify that he “wouldn’t criticize” Universal for their strategy.  Read More »
