Looks like that bit role in BoJack Horseman Season 1 has finally paid off for Naomi Watts, scoring the actress her very own Netflix drama. Watts will lead 2017 psychological thriller Gypsy as an apparently-terrible therapist, with the first two outings directed by 50 Shades of Grey helmer Sam Taylor-Johnson.

Matthew McConaughey Challenges God in the French ‘Sea of Trees’ Trailer

When Gus Van Sant’s latest feature The Sea of Trees debuted at Cannes nearly a year ago, expectations were high. A skilled actor’s director, Van Sant’s collaboration with buzzy star Matthew McConaughey was presumed to be an insta-hit and a possible Oscar contender in the making. McConaughey’s professional capital has never been higher, and the Cannes set has always been fond of Van Sant, awarding him the Palme d’Or for his school-shooting drama Elephant in 2003. So it came as that much more of a shock when audiences roundly rejected The Sea of Trees, complete with booing and walkouts. (Though that sounds a bit more dramatic than it is. Cannes audiences love big gestures; nearly everything gets either a standing ovation or jeering, and in the rarest of occasions, both.)

The second trailer for Demolition still doesn’t seem to be doing any favors for the latest film from Jean-Marc Vallee, the director who previously brought us critically acclaimed films Wild and Dallas Buyers Club. Still, with those credits under his belt and with the help of Jake Gyllenhaal, maybe there’s something special to be found in Demolition yet.

The secrecy of Twin Peaks can surely drive fans to madness, thus far only confirming a premiere in early 2017, but there’s good news. Not only has Naomi Watts been confirmed to reunite with creator David Lynch for the Showtime revival, but Lynch too will reprise his on-camera role, among other additions.

Naomi Watts’ is the second-billed star in Jean-Marc Vallée’s Demolition. On the film’s official Fox Searchlight website, her name appears above the title next to Jake Gyllenhaal’s. But she barely appears in the film’s trailer. She’s onscreen for less than one second. She says just three words. (“You miss her?”) It’s almost like the trailer is trying to hide her.

About Ray caused a bit of a stir some months ago when Elle Fanning was cast in the titular role of Ray, a transgender teen boy transitioning from female to male. Many felt as though the film should have cast an actual transgender teen boy instead of Fanning, but now the first trailer has arrived and you can judge Fanning’s abilities for yourself.

To date, the most successful movie that Noah Baumbach has been involved with grossed $530 million worldwide. This is an astounding and somewhat surprising figure until it’s revealed that the movie in question is ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ – a movie that Baumbach co-wrote with the writer of the other two 'Madagascar’ movies, Eric Darnell. As a director, Baumbach’s most successful movie to date is 2005’s ‘The Squid and the Whale,’ which grossed a little over $7 million domestically. This will all change when ‘While We’re Young’ – which premiered in Toronto and was the New York Film Festival’s Surprise Screening on Sunday evening – reaches theaters next year. Noah Baumbach has made a commercially viable film.
