The Avenging Silence

This past summer brought our first look at Nicolas Winding Refn‘s next film, a horror project called The Neon Demon. At the time, the film didn’t have a distributor and we weren’t sure when it would arrive. But today, Amazon Studios has announced acquisition of the film starring Elle Fanning, and they’ve released a new still from the movie as well. So when can you watch it? Read More »

Trumbo trailer

Although Bryan Cranston‘s been plenty busy over the past few years, he hasn’t actually been seen in a lead role onscreen since Breaking Bad. So it’s nice to see him take the spotlight again in Trumbo, Jay Roach‘s drama about Hollywood at the height of anti-Communist fervor.

Cranston plays Spartacus and Roman Holiday screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted from the industry due to his political beliefs. Helen Mirren, Diane Lane, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, and John Goodman also star. Watch the Trumbo trailer after the jump. Read More »

About Ray trailer

The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for About Ray (formerly Three Generations). Elle Fanning stars as Ray, New York City teenager embarking on the process of transitioning from female to male.

Naomi Watts plays Ray’s mother Maggie, who accepts his decision but nevertheless worries about her child, and Susan Sarandon plays Ray’s grandmother Dolly, who just doesn’t seem to get it (“Why can’t she just be a lesbian?” she asks). Tate Donovan also stars as Ray’s absentee father, who’s reluctant to sign off on Ray’s medical forms. Watch the About Ray trailer after the jump. Read More »

Ben Affleck directing Live by Night

Following the Best Picture winning true drama Argo, the film’s star and director Ben Affleck lined up an adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s Prohibition-set crime drama Live by Night, and originally planned to shoot in the fall of 2013. However, his new gig as Batman for Warner Bros. Pictures (not to mention directing a solo Batman film for 2018) kept him from getting the project off the ground immediately and the project was pushed back to 2016.

Thankfully, it sounds like the project is finally happening as Warner Bros. has given the film a greenlight to finally begin production this fall, assuming nothing else ends up changing the plan again. Find out more about Ben Affleck directing Live by Night after the jump. Read More »

How to Talk to Girls At Parties Nicole Kidman

The title “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” brings to mind something very specific, yet this movie is not at all what you think it’s going to be. Clue one: it is based on a short story by Neil Gaiman, the writer behind Sandman and Stardust. Clue two: it’ll be co-written and directed by John Cameron Mitchell, the creator of Hedwig and the Angry Inch and, most recently, the director of Rabbit Hole. That heartbreaking film starred Nicole Kidman and she’ll reteam with the director for this one. So what’s it about? It’s a musically charged, Romeo and Juliet-influenced, love story involving punks and aliens.

As previously reported, Elle Fanning is still attached, and they’ll be joined by Matt Lucas and Ruth Wilson. Read more about How to Talk to Girls At Parties below. Read More »
