Guillermo del Toro has about a hundred different projects cooking at any given moment, but as we reported back in March, his next directorial effort is a Cold War romance starring Sally Hawkins, Octavia Spencer, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Of course, del Toro being del Toro, this isn’t just your run-of-the-mill period piece.

But before that, we’ll get to see him saddle up in a different western as another bad ass cowboy.

Hot on the heels of the film’s premiere at Fantastic Fest this past week, the first Bone Tomahawk trailer has arrived. Read More »

Olive Kitteridge

Mainstream cinema isn’t exactly brimming over with meaty leading roles for women over 40, but we’ve seen a lot of fine actresses find exciting work on TV. Add to that list Frances McDormand, who appears to deliver another stunning turn in the upcoming HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge.

Directed by Lisa Cholodenko and based on the novel by Elizabeth Strout, Olive Kitteridge centers on an abrasive teacher living in a small New England town. Okay, so that’s not the most exciting premise on paper — but strong reviews out of Venice and a top-notch supporting cast that also includes Bill Murray and Richard Jenkins suggest it’ll be worth a look.
