‘The Lego Batman Movie’ Beats ‘Fist Fight’ For The Weekend [Box Office]

4 hours ago

Its Presidents Day weekend, and Hollywood offered audiences everything from a weirdo horror movie to an Ice Cube comedy to Matt Damon fighting monsters, but it turns out they just wanted to see more Batman.

Warner Bros. won the holiday stretch as “The Lego Batman Movie” roped in $34.2 million. The audience drop was only 35% which indicates it’s gonna hold on at the multiplex for a while, and the picture will cross $100 million domestic this week.

6 hours ago

Another year, and another Berlin Film Festival has wrapped up. It was bit quieter on the ground in 2017 than past years, but as always, a handful of movies shined brightly and are flying home from the prestigious festival with some serious hardware to put on the shelf.

One movie we missed, and that we’ll certainly have to catch up with the down the line, is Ildikó Enyedi‘s “On Body And Soul” which won the Golden Bear.

Nominations For Inaugural American Independent Film Awards Revealed

6 hours ago

We know — it’s February and the last thing you want to hear about is another awards show, but believe us when we say that the American Independent Film Awards are different. Generally speaking, the awards season tends to celebrate the best in cinema, with the caveat being that many movies get on the Oscar radar because they have the money and influence behind them helping to make that push. And while the Indie Spirit Awards somewhat the fill the gap of the Oscars, focusing on movies produced outside the studio system for less than $20 million, it still means that worthy films get overlooked.

‘The Other Side Of Hope’ Is The Aki Kaurismäki Movie We Need Right Now [Berlin Review]

7 hours ago

It’s unlikely that the most culturally ignorant U.S. president in living memory would ever have dreamed of choosing a film by Finnish eccentric Aki Kaurismäki as appropriate Dorito-dinner accompaniment in the White House — for one thing, his borderline illiteracy means the subtitling would probably make him Sad! But if such a downright un-American dish were ever to be on the menu, it’s doubly certain that he would not have chosen “The Other Side of Hope,” Kaurismäki’s wonderful new Berlinale competition title that makes a stonefaced, droll but paradoxically urgent case for a truth that desperately needs to survive these post-truth times: people are people and borders are bullshit.

4 Quadrant Podcast: ‘Hell Or High Water’s’ Taylor Sheridan On Oscars And ‘Wind River’

21 hours ago

When I walked into Taylor Sheridan‘s hotel room to record this podcast I felt like I’d interrupted something important. There were different shirts lined across the bed and a rack of other options and jackets on hangers that had been rolled into the room. As his fashion stylist and her two assistants hurriedly made their way out they jumped on the phone to request one change or another. This is all because their client is a top nominee at three awards shows over the next 10 days, the WGA Awards, the Independent Spirit Awards and, the most important of all, the Academy Awards.

Matt Reeves Won’t Be Directing ‘The Batman’

17 February 2017 5:05 PM, PST

Well, scratch one candidate off the list for “The Batman.”

As you know, Ben Affleck vacated the director’s chair on the brewing solo outing for his take on The Dark Knight, leaving open of the biggest job vacancies in Hollywood at the moment. Hope shone in the sky last week, when it was revealed that “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” director Matt Reeves was in talks for the project, but it seems the deal couldn’t be sealed.

Dear Academy: Do The Right Thing And Vote For ‘The Salesman’ For Oscar

17 February 2017 2:01 PM, PST

Let’s start off with the easy stuff, first.  Maren Ade’s “Toni Erdmann” should have won the Palme d’Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. It also should have won the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film over “Elle,” another film I adore. It’s a crime Ade missed out on a Best Original Screenplay Oscar nomination this year and certainly a Best Director nod over “Hacksaw Ridge’s” Mel Gibson.

‘Logan’ Finally Delivers A Wolverine Movie With A Bloody, Beating Heart [Review]

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST

The year is 2029. As far as anyone knows, no new mutants have been born in the last twenty-five years, and the legend of the X-Men have been left to the pages of comic books. Always a perpetual loner, James Howlett aka Logan aka Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), has even further isolated himself, living off the grid in a remote industrial warehouse, where he cares for Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), the once great Professor X, who is now battling dementia and diminished control of his still fearsome powers.

Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara & Michael Fassbender Bring The Music In First Trailer For Terrence Malick’s ‘Song To Song’

17 February 2017 9:58 AM, PST

Music, sex, rock ‘n roll….”Song To Song” (formerly titled “Weightless“) doesn’t sound like your average Terrence Malick movie, and perhaps that’s what makes this latest entry from the suddenly prolific director so intriguing (don’t forget, he’s already wrapped his next movie, the WWII pic “Radegund“). But some things remain the same, including his bonkers ensemble.

Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, and Holly Hunter all star in the movie set against the backdrop of the Austin music scene, where relationships collide.
