Ridley Scott's adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's original screenplay starring Michael Fassbender, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, et. al. is one frustrating movie. At its very best – if you buckle down and really work to piece together the nearly inscrutable plot – you aren't going to come away with much. “Crime doesn't pay,” is the gist of it.
Director Steve McQueen ('Hunger,' 'Shame') is ready to unleash his third film, '12 Years a Slave,' in theaters tomorrow, and you'll be able to see what critics are calling a spectacular, but hard-to-watch film. Just to give you a taste of what's in store, Fox Searchlight has released a batch of clips, showcasing its variety of acting talent.
It would be a lot easier if you could say, "it's just a movie." The sickening thing, the thing that may make it difficult to convince you to buy a ticket, is the opening card that reads, "based on a true story." But facing the cruelty of America's original sin is what '12 Years a Slave' is all about. That's what Solomon Northup did.
The Supporting Acting categories can be crapshoots. They’re often crowded with character actors who have stolen the spotlight away from a movie’s lead (see recent winners Christoph Waltz, Christian Bale and the late Heath Ledger for examples). But the categories often can be catch-all spots used by the Academy to recognize an actor who has gone the duration of a career without being acknowledged with an Oscar, and so they are rewarded for a part that might not be trophy-worthy.
The full-length trailer for Ridley Scott's 'The Counselor' has arrived online, and there's only one thing this movie wants to know: Have you been bad? Well, it seems Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem and Michael Fassbender certainly have, judging by the action in the trailer. There's not much explicitly described about the plot, which is kind of how we like our trailers.
It's been over twenty years since Brad Pitt last worked with Ridley Scott, which is surprising as it was Pitt's work in 1991's 'Thelma and Louise' that launched him into superstardom. The duo have reunited for 'The Counselor,' and in anticipation of a new trailer hitting tomorrow, three clips from the movie have been released.
Just days after the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' cast and crew surprised the Hall H audience at Comic-Con 2013 with a panel featuring debut footage, the Bryan Singer-directed 'First Class' sequel has dropped the first two posters.
