One of New York’s interesting little quirks is that just about everyone takes the train. Even, apparently, criminal masterminds on their way to stage a multimillion-dollar heist at one of the glitziest events of the year. At least that’s my takeaway from our first look at Ocean’s 8, which puts Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) and her crew (including characters played by Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, and Anne Hathaway) on an MTA subway car. Check it out below. Read More »

The Duplass Brothers have a four-picture deal with Netflix. Last summer, the streaming service announced they’d finance four movies produced by Jay and Mark Duplass through their production company Duplass Brothers Productions. Unlike Netflix’s Adam Sandler movies, however, the brothers’ films will first go to theaters. The first film the Duplass brothers have produced for Netflix is Alex Lehmann’s feature directorial debut Blue Jay, which stars Duplass and recent Emmy winner Sarah Paulson (The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story).
Below, watch the Blue Jay trailer.
After months of waiting, fans of American Horror Story finally learned what season six of the anthology series is about. The latest season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk‘s show is titled American Horror Story: Roanoke, and it’s inspired by shows like Unsolved Mysteries and other programs featuring interviews and reenactments. Season six is, as some guessed, related to the mystery of the Roanoke Colony.
Below, learn more about the American Horror Story season six theme.

Todd Haynes‘ Carol is an excellent film. The more I think about it, the more I love it. It’s a quiet movie, one that speaks to you through performances and visuals, not always dialogue. It’s a rare movie, in that sense, and it’s one of the many reasons why you should all see it in a theater. The Weinstein Company has released another trailer for film, which you can watch after the jump.

Director Todd Haynes often explores repressed desires and emotions. Velvet Goldmine, Far from Heaven, and Haynes’ other pictures share themes of what people choose to hide from the world. The conflicts their characters face are always presented with sensitivity and thoughtfulness — a deep understanding of the pain or joy in their lives. Once again, with Carol, Haynes digs deep under the skin of his characters.

Showrunner Ryan Murphy has made a name for himself by freaking people out. Whether it’s the twists of American Horror Story, the tension of Nip/Tuck or the singing in Glee, he loves to put something provocative on the screen. His latest project is going to do something similar, but in a very different way. We already knew he was starting a new miniseries called American Crime Story for which each season will be about one specific real-life crime drama from American history. We also knew season one would be about arguably the most famous case in recent memory, titled American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
Now we know the players. Cuba Gooding Jr. will play Simpson in the FX miniseries and Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) has been cast as lawyer Marcia Clarke. Read more about the OJ Simpson TV series below. Read More »
