Let’s talk some trophies! Today, Mike Ryan and the Huffington Post’s Chris Rosen discuss the Oscar chances of both ‘Foxcatcher’ and ‘A Most Violent Year.’
People love watching famous people accept trophies. So, every so often, The Huffington Post’s Chris Rosen and ScreenCrush’s Mike Ryan will speculate about these trophies and which famous person might win one. It will be fun. Let’s talk some trophies! Today, we discuss smear campaigns against movies and the recent New York Times piece about Christopher Nolan and Jessica Chastain.
Once upon a time, back in 2012, Jessica Chastain was in talks with Marvel to star in 'Iron Man 3' as scientist Maya Hansen. Chastain eventually passed on the role saying, "My schedule is jammed packed and I can’t fit anything else in." (The part would eventually go to actress Rebecca Hall.) At the time, Chastain posted to her Facebook fans, "Hopefully there’ll be another Marvel film in my future." Has that time come already?
On paper, 'A Most Violent Year' doesn't sound like anything special. It's a story we've seen a hundred times before: a criminal finds his bloody business creeping into his family life, threatening to tear down everything he's worked so hard to build. However, when you put J.C. Chandor in the director's chair and cast people like Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the lead roles, what was once old starts to feel new again.
The more we see of Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar,' the more we are tickled with excitement. Following the official trailer releases, TV spots and a preliminary synopsis, a new TV spot has landed, bringing with it some confirmation on plot and new footage to delight the senses.
We're a little more than a month away before Christopher Nolan's sci-fi film, 'Interstellar,' hits theaters, and it's still somewhat of a mystery. The director of 'Inception' sure has the whole "keeping cards close to the vest" thing down pat. With a few trailers and posters now in the airwaves, however, a batch of new 'Interstellar' photos debuted to give us a bit more insight into what is surely one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year.
A24 Films released the first 'A Most Violent Year' trailer, while simultaneously announcing its official release date for December 31, officially placing it in this year's Oscar race. As the frontrunners of awards season begin to take shape, the first footage of director J.C. Chandlor's latest pegs this dark and gritty film as one to watch.
The desire for (and subsequent lack of) a female-led superhero movie is a hot topic that continues to be debated. Actually, there really isn't much debate; we're all pretty much in agreement that there should be a female-led superhero movie. Well, you can add one more voice to the chorus of people shouting loudly for a female Marvel movie as two-time Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain took time out from her current promotional tour to support the notion of a Scarlett Johansson-led Black Widow movie.
Matthew McConaughey may not have walked away with an Emmy for 'True Detective,' but he has another chance to stun audiences with Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic later this year. The latest 'Interstellar' TV spot, toting such arresting visuals, reaffirms that this is one cinematic journey we want to take.
Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy lead the trailer for 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,' which is based on an intriguing premise: The film was shot from two different perspectives as two separate films ('Him' and 'Her') and has no been combined into one film (the 'Them' version).
