Sofia Coppola’s latest project already sounds like it could be her most interesting in years, particularly for a longtime fan such as myself who found her last two efforts — Somewhere and The Bling Ring — to be entirely underwhelming (though not without some merit). The director has officially begun production on her next film, The Beguiled, a Civil War-era drama which marks her fourth feature with Kirsten Dunst, and will hit theaters next summer.
The miniseries or movie category makes things tougher to sort out each year, but the Outstanding Lead Actress award at the 2016 Emmy Awards was definitely Sarah Paulson's to lose. So it is, that the People v. O.J. Simpson star took home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie award at the 2016 Emmy Awards.
So far the Rio Olympics have featured a handful of wins for female athletes, from U.S. gymnast Simon Biles to swimmer Katie Ledecky, which made it the perfect opportunity to debut the trailer for ‘Hidden Figures.’
After working with great directors like Sofia Coppola, Lars Von Trier, Cameron Crowe and Sam Raimi, it’s honestly sort of surprising that it’s taken Kirsten Dunst this long to set up her own film project — but it seems like it was well worth the wait, as the actress’ directorial debut will be based on Sylvia Plath’s literary classic The Bell Jar. Could there be anything more perfect?
We came very close to getting a live-action update of The Little Mermaid directed by Sofia Coppola, but our dreams of being part of that world (or at least viewing it) were crushed thanks to good ol’ creative differences. It’s been three years since Coppola’s previous film, The Bling Ring, but our wait for her next project may soon be over as the director is reportedly reuniting with Kirsten Dunst for a remake of Civil War romance The Beguiled, with Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning set to co-star.
The latest film from Mud and Take Shelter director Jeff Nichols is set to debut at SXSW next month, but you won't have to wait long to see what's so special about Midnight Special, as it hits theaters about a week after its festival premiere. A new trailer for the sci-fi indie has arrived, further teasing the mystery and desperation surrounding one very interesting little boy.
The moment that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association first announced the 2016 Golden Globe nominees, American Horror Story: Hotel star Lady Gaga raised a few eyebrows with a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Miniseries. Welp, guess who ended up taking home the award!
After only ten short weeks, Fargo has once again shoveled out the closing chapter of its blood-soaked story, as Season 2’s Sioux Falls massacre claimed yet more victims. Season 3 will be well on the way soon enough, but in the meantime, who won’t be taking in another Fargo sunrise after tonight’s “Palindrome?” And what familiar Season 1 characters put in surprise returns?
It’s been way too long since the last Jeff Nichols movie.
It’s a rare occurrence when one writer takes another’s story and adapts it into an entirely new creature of its own, outside of imitation or homage. It’s even more rare when that writer reinvents his adaptation yet again for a second installment. Noah Hawley did that last year with Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1996 dark comedy Fargo, easily one of 2014's best TV series. Now Hawley’s doing it all over again, adopting the anthology format for a second season of FX’s Fargo, taking the seeds from the Coen brothers’ classic and planting them in another original, bizarre field. But even the creative brilliance of sowing something new can lead to watching a very slow, tepid growth.
