Luke Wilson and Martin Sheen team for ’12 Mighty Orphans,’ an inspiring, true-life football story

Ask Luke Wilson what it was like to work with Martin Sheen on the new film “12 Mighty Orphans” and he sounds just as awestruck as he was the first day on location in Texas. “I’m from like the Blockbuster Video-era where I didn’t see ‘Apocalypse Now’ in the theater, I’d never seen ‘Badlands,’” Wilson says of two iconic Sheen films. “So as I started to get into movies and directors and actors, I did see ‘Apocalypse Now,’ and then ‘Badlands, which, you know, just blew me and my brothers and my frie...

Policing, body cameras, and the power of images explored in ‘All Light, Everywhere’

Filmmaker Theo Anthony isn’t a traditional documentarian, which his new movie, “All Light, Everywhere,” makes clear. “I’m not a linear person,” Anthony says. “I can’t really do a beginning, middle, and end thing. And rather than fight that, I just tried to embrace it. “All Light, Everywhere,” won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Nonfiction Experimentation at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. With unorthodox creativity, Anthony examines the intersections between cameras and...

‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ turns 40: Karen Allen and Belloq actor Paul Freeman reveal secret treasures

Karen Allen was on location in Northern California when she got word that she’d gotten the part of Marion Ravenwood in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” A courier arrived with a copy of the full script of the 1981 movie that would introduce Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. The courier stayed in the room while Allen read it — this was top secret stuff, after all — and Allen knew she was all-in on this adventure movie that director Steven Spielberg and producer George Lucas had offered her. “I had fallen ...

Carrie Fisher’s Screen Test for Star Wars

Before her appearance in Star Wars, Carrie Fisher had only appeared in one film (Hal Ashby’s Shampoo) and for the role of Leia, she was going up against several other great actresses, including Karen Allen and Jodie Foster. In this footage of Fisher’s screen test from late 1975/early 1976, where she’s reading a scene with Harrison Ford about the Death Star plans, you get a tantalizing glimpse of why she ended up winning the part. See also Mark Hamill’s screen test and several other Star War...

How We Eerily Predicted Trump’s War on the U.S. Postal Service

In the summer of 2017, I was prepping to direct my film, Colewell, with Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark) in the lead role. The screenplay followed a rural postmaster forced into retirement, and I began to wonder whether it was a wise project to invest so much time in. Would audiences relate to a woman who spends her time at home, feeling cut off from her community? And who cares about the U.S. Postal Service? Three years later, I’m in the strange position of wishing my own film was less rel...

The Best Brian Dennehy Movies You’ve Never Seen

(Welcome to The Best Movies You’ve Never Seen, a series that takes a look at slightly more obscure, under-the-radar, or simply under-appreciated movies. This week we look back on the career of a late, great acting talent!)

We lost another one of the greats recently with the passing of Brian Dennehy, but we still have his movies. He worked pr...

2020 Independent Spirit Awards Winners: ‘The Farewell’ and ‘Uncut Gems’ Victories Make Up for the Lack of Oscars Love

The 35th Film Independent Spirit Awards were handed out last night, honoring achievements in independent cinema in a celebration of artist-driven films made with an economy of means by filmmakers whose films embody diversity, innovation and uniqueness of vision. The ceremony honored two movies that were overlooked by the Oscars in a big way, with The Farewell winning Best Feature and Adam Sandler taking home Best Male Lead for Uncut Gems. And those weren’t the only awards those two films walked...

TOM QUINN ON COLEWELL & KAREN ALLEN

Tom Quinn wrote and directed Colewell, a quiet and evocative film set in a rural town in Pennsylvania. The film stars Karen Allen, Kevin J. O’Connor and others.

Film Review: ‘Colewell’

Populated by characters who rarely raise their voices, much less engage in anything that might qualify as “action,” “Colewell” is a character study that’s almost too subdued for its own good. Fortunately, writer-director Tom Quinn has a keen eye for telling details, as well as a superb lead actress in Karen Allen, who stars as […]

‘The Challenger’ Casts Michelle Williams as Astronaut Christa McAuliffe

Here’s a film that’s bound to be a bit depressing. Michelle Williams, who can be seen later this week in Venom, has just landed the role of Christa McAuliffe in The Challenger, a movie based on the 1986 space shuttle disaster that shocked the world. McAuliffe was set to be the first teacher in space, but the shuttle exploded upon takeoff, killing all seven astronauts on board. Deadline broke the news about Williams joining The Challenger movie.

“Toga! Toga!:” Evaluating Popular School Comedies

September is here, which means there is still a “back to school” feeling in the air, even for people who work year-round. I still have a wistful sadness at the end of Summer. It still represents a moment of freedom in people’s lives. They can briefly abandon their responsibilities to travel and make childish mistakes that they’ll end up laughing at on their next trip. For many years, I thought that growing older meant I’d finally have the experiences I saw in these movies. High school and colleg...

‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’: What is Marion Ravenwood Holding When Indiana Jones Shows Up?

Steven Spielberg‘s Raiders of the Lost Ark is unquestionably one of the best adventure movies ever made, and every inch of the film has been examined and analyzed by film lovers since it came out in 1981. But I just discovered something new about the movie that I’d never heard before. During the scene in which Indiana Jones and Marion Ravenwood reunite for the first time in years, Marion has her hands full – but she’s not carrying what it sounds like she’s carrying. Read on to learn the truth a...
