Chandor is the definition of “gregarious.” He likes telling long stories (to the point he drove the film’s publicists crazy trying to keep everything running on time, until they just kind of gave up), which I suppose makes sense considering his profession. Chandor is the true definition of “storyteller,” in that he conceives a story and follows it through from start to finish—whether that’s on film or in a Park Ave. hotel. Though, Chandor admits he’s a “loudmouth,” but commends himself on not revealing a big secret about Oscar Isaac’s role in the new ‘Star Wars’ movie.
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.
ScreenCrush’s WookieLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything 'Star Wars'! From 'Episode 7,' to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, the names of three new characters are revealed, George Lucas reveals that he doesn’t really care about the new trailer, and the identity of the new villain is debated.
J.J. Abrams is famous for keeping secrets. His whole schtick as a director is the “mystery box”—finding pleasure in the unknown, and in the tease of that uncertainty. He didn’t show the monster in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield’; hell he didn’t even show the title of the movie in the trailer for ‘Cloverfield.’ If J.J. Abrams could release a movie without telling you anything about it, he probably would.
Following the debut of that first awesome trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ we’ve been dying to know more about the newest installment in the franchise. Among the things we’d love to know: how much of the set is practical, and just what is the deal with that crazy lightsaber? The actors involved in the film have been fairly tight-lipped, but Oscar Isaac, who was also recently cast in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ as the titular villain, has opened up in a new interview to shed some light on ‘The Force Awakens.’
Awards, awards, and more awards! And then, for dessert, additional awards! Yep, it’s December all right, and that means every group of movie lovers under the sun is giving out their prizes for the best films of the year. The National Board of Review, the country’s leading body dedicated to reviewing boards from our nation, just announced their favorites, including their pick for the top movie of 2014: J.C. Chandor’s ‘A Most Violent Year,’ starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain.
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items.

From one major geek-friendly franchise to another. Oscar Isaac, who'll appear next year in 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' has signed on to star as the titular villain in 'X-Men: Apocalypse', which will open in theaters just six months later.
There are a number of interesting things going on in the first 'Ex Machina' trailer, but let's get the weird one out of the way first: this is a 2015 science fiction film starring Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac that is not called 'Star Wars: Episode 7.' The fact that these two very interesting actors are starring in next year's biggest sci-fi adventure as well as this small, cerebral sci-fi indie only deepens our appreciation for both of them.
