directors roundtable

Around the end of every year, The Hollywood Reporter releases one-hour roundtable video interviews with writers, actors, directors, and more. Often the filmmakers will discuss their work with a surprising amount of honesty. This year is no different, and once again, they’ve found a few filmmakers you’d want to spend an hour with, including directors Quentin Tarantino (The Hateful Eight), Ridley Scott (The Martian), and Danny Boyle (Steve Jobs).

After the jump, watch the one-hour long chat.

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. The project was sweetened by Emma Stone playing Billie Jean King until she was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts earlier this year. But now she’s back.

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 »

Tim Cook talks Steve Jobs movies

Aaron Sorkin is a little bit of a softie. MoneyballStudio 6o on Sunset Strip, and Steve Jobs aren’t without heartwarming moments. In fact, in the case of Sorkin’s latest, some audiences and critics have taken issue with how soft the film goes in the final minutes. But Sorkin defends the ending.

Danny Boyle Steve Jobs interview

Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs is my favorite movie of the year so far. I love so much about this film. I love how it’s a biopic without being a biopic. I love how it captures the truth and essence of a person, but probably 90% of the events and conversations in the movie never happened (or at very least, not at a keynote). I love Aaron Sorkin‘s intense dialogue and Michael Fasbender‘s performance — he may not look like Steve Jobs at the start of this movie, but by the end of the movie he transforms into the man.

28 Months Later

28 Months Later will probably happen at some point. While the sequel, 28 Weeks Later, wasn’t as successful or as cheap as Danny Boyle‘s (Steve Jobs) original film, it performed well enough not to kill off the series. Juan Carlos Fresnadillo‘s sequel is also a good movie, so it’s not like audiences would have an allergic reaction to another one of these films. Who will direct the third installment has always been a question mark, but 12 years after creating this zombie-infested world, Danny Boyle still might direct 28 Months Later. Learn more after the jump.

Steve Jobs

Were you to go into Steve Jobs having no idea who Steve Jobs was, Steve Jobs wouldn’t really tell you. The character (played by Michael Fassbender) explains to a pissed-off Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen) at one point that he “play[s] the orchestra” like a symphony conductor — but as Wozniak points out, it’s one of those sentences that sounds cool but doesn’t really mean anything in concrete terms.

For most biopics, this would be a failing, but for a Steve Jobs biopic in 2015, it’s an asset. We don’t need a movie to tell us who Steve Jobs is as a tech guru. I’m currently typing this review on my Apple keyboard, which is linked to my MacBook Air, with my iPhone 6 by my side; I know exactly who Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, is. Steve Jobs feels a revelation because it exposes Steve Jobs, the man.  Read More »
