Danny Boyle Calls His James Bond 25 Exit “A Great Shame”

When Danny Boyle was announced as the director of James Bond 25, the movie world was abuzz with what his version of a Bond movie would look like. But alas, that buzz was cut short when Boyle suddenly left the project in August last year, citing that dreaded term: “creative differences.” Boyle hasn’t spoken since on the reason he clashed over the vision of the film with star Daniel Craig and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, but in a new interview, he illuminates why he left the ...

Annapurna Lost Money On All But One of Their 2018 Films, and This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Year after year, I hear cinephiles issue the same complaint: “Why aren’t there more original movies?” Why, film fans wonder, is the box office landscape littered with sequels, reboots and superhero movies? The answer is simple: when original movies do hit theaters, no one sees them. Case in point: Annapurna Pictures, one of the most original motion picture companies out there today, had a whole slew of great movies last year. And guess what? Every single one of them, except one, was a box offic...

‘Bond 25’: Oscar Winner Rami Malek Will Play the Villain, Billy Magnussen Could Play a New Agent

Daniel Craig is returning to play James Bond once again in the still-untitled Bond 25, and now a new report says that the British spy will be facing off against a villain to be played by recent Oscar winner Rami Malek. Plus, a separate report gives us a broader picture of what roles are left to fill – including a part that seems to be written specifically for Game Night actor Billy Magnussen. Collider says we’re about to see a Rami Malek Bond villain: the Bohemian Rhapsody star is in final n...

Oscars 2019: Before you bet on the Academy Awards, you might want to read this

Here are my expert Oscar predictions. And my “expert” advice is: Don’t bet on anything this year! At least not in the Best Picture race. Yes, it’s been hard to predict that winner since the academy expanded the nomination count and introduced a preferential balloting system for the category about 10 years ago. But other factors make this one the biggest free-for-all Best Picture race of the decade. For one thing, all of the major Hollywood guilds have given their highest honors to different film...

‘Wounds’ Review: Armie Hammer Really Shouldn’t Have Picked Up That Haunted Cell Phone [Sundance]

A sweat-drenched, hypnotizing descent into horror, Babak Anvari’s Wounds is full of contradictions. It’s the type of movie that regularly swings from tense to laughable, from serious to ludicrous, from spine-tingling to eye-rolling. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t thoroughly entertained as I watched Armie Hammer and Dakota Johnson go off the deep end after discovering a cursed cell phone. Will (Hammer) is a New Orleans bartender who’s nursing a drinking problem and an unrequited crush on ...

‘Destroyer’ Director Karyn Kusama on Showing a New Side of Los Angeles and Nicole Kidman [Interview]

Few directors today make genre movies as intimate Karyn Kusama. The director of The Invitation, Girl Fight, and Jennifer’s Body gets real up close and personal to her characters, especially the protagonist of her latest film, Destroyer. Detective Erin Bell — a bulldozer of a character played by Nicole Kidman — is not a character you can take your eyes away from. The character originated from the co-writers of The Invitation, Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. Like that party-in-the-hills-gone-terribly...

This year’s Oscar nominations indicate what has changed in Hollywood, and what hasn’t

Did the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences solve any of its numerous problems with Tuesday’s announcement of its 91st Oscar nominees? Yes, in some ways; maybe or maybe not, in others. Foremost this year, the Best Picture (voted on by all academy members) and different branch (selected by voters from their particular job categories) nominees indicate that recent efforts to diversify and broaden the group have had their strongest impact on the Oscar field yet. The Mexican art film “Roma” ...

Though many expected “A Star Is Born,” Bradley Cooper’s tear-inducing revival of one of Hollywood’s most oft-remade show-business myths, to top nominations, Cooper was surprisingly ...

‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ Release Date Pushed Back 5 Months

Where’d you go, Where’d You Go, Bernadette? Oh, I see – you went all the way to August. The release date of the Richard Linklater-directed film starring Cate Blanchett has been pushed five months, from March to August. The reasoning cited behind the move is that August is a better month for “female-skewing films.” So we’re all going to have to wait a little longer to find out where Bernadette went.

Adam McKay Details Another ‘Vice’ Deleted Scene Featuring Young Dick Cheney

Vice just hit theaters before the end of 2018, and with awards season in full swing, we’ve got at least two or three months until the movie arrives on home video. But when it does, it will feature a couple of key scenes that didn’t make the final cut. Director Adam McKay has already talked about a certain musical sequence that would have added to the satirical meta nature of the movie, but it turns out Vice almost had a flashback sequence featuring a young Dick Cheney and future wife Lynne Vinc...

Nicole Kidman Wreaks Havoc in Karyn Kusama’s Disorienting 'Destroyer'

None It's hard to imagine a less family-friendly Christmas day film than Karyn Kusama's gruff, impassioned Destroyer, which stars Nicole Kidman as an alcoholic cop. Luckily, that much could be gleaned from promotional footage and photos, which feature a largely unrecognizable Kidman in a grey mop-like haircut and wrinkly, dry-as-dirt face makeup. That and the title should have been enough to steer those searching for purity away; this is less a tale of love than of vicious, animalistic vengeanc...

‘Vice’ Director Adam McKay on His Meticulously Made Biopic and How He Thinks Dick Cheney Would React to the Film [Interview]

Too many biopics fall prey to hero worship. In trying to celebrate someone’s life, many biographical films end up lacking humanity, nuance, and, more often than not, hard truths. It plagues bio films, especially the agreeable kind that score all the Oscars. But in the case of Adam McKay‘s Vice, he didn’t make the average biopic. He’s certainly not looking up to Dick Cheney, the former Vice President, but looking down on him with a big ‘ol unforgiving microscope. The drama is an epic that moves ...
