‘On The Basis Of Sex’ With Felicity Jones Will Open AFI...

After a 2017 festival that was woefully short on world premieres, AFI Fest has secured a major debut for its 2018 edition.  Mimi Leder’s “On The Basis Of Sex” will open the festival on Nov. 8 in Hollywood.  And it’s no surprise once you learn Leder is an alum of the American Film Institute. In […]

There’s a lot of veteran Oscar players in this category with currently only three contenders still looking for their first nomination. Two players already receiving a ton of buzz?  “The Favourite’s” Olivia Colman, also hitting small screens replacing Claire Foy in “The Crown,” and “Destroyer’s” Nicole Kidman. [Posted July 4, 2018] Likely Frontrunners Amy Adams, “Backseat” […]

Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie Face Off In Focus Features ‘Mary...

LAS VEGAS – Focus Features had a lot to celebrate in 2017.  “Atomic Blonde” was a summer hit, “Victoria and Abdul” showed Judi Dench can still be a box office superstar with the right movie, “The Beguiled” was pretty close to profitable (a rarity for a Sofia Coppola film), “Darkest Hour” earned $147 million globally […]

First Look: Felicity Jones As Ruth Bader Ginsburg In ‘On The...

After Felicity Jones gave franchises another try with last year’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (don’t forget about her tiny role in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2“), the actress is back in the world of prestige dramas, and hoping to earn another Oscar nomination with “On The Basis Of Sex” by taking on the role […]

Felicity Jones Replaces Natalie Portman In Ruth Bader Ginsburg Biopic ‘On...

Two years can be the lifetime in the development of a movie, and when you don’t hear any news, it’s generally not good news. And while we’ve heard pretty much zilch about “On The Basis Of Sex” since it was announced in 2015, it looks like the movie is picking up steam again. Deadline reports […]

Luca Guadagnino To Direct ‘Swan Lake’ Starring Felicity Jones

A decade passed between filmmaker Luca Guadagnino‘s first film, the little-seen crime thriller “The Protagonists,” and his breakout feature, the swooning “I Am Love.” Six more years would elapse until his next feature, “A Bigger Splash,” and the now the director isn’t wasting a moment. Hot on the heels of that picture, Guadagnino knocked out […]

Nicholas Hoult & Felicity Jones Drive For Love In New Trailer...

Geez, Open Road are really kicking off 2017 by getting their garbage out of the way. Last weekend they opened the Jamie Foxx vehicle “Sleepless” without screening it for press, and watched it tank hard over the holiday weekend. And next month comes the frequently delayed “Collide,” and I also won’t be surprised if it […]

‘A Monster Calls’ Is A Beautifully Structured, Emotionally Rich Fable [Review]

Before “A Monster Calls” powerfully overflows its banks with deeply felt tides of emotion. Before you are trying to keep watching the screen through eyes welled with tears, the first thing you’ll notice about young Conor (Lewis MacDougall) — who is “too old to be a kid, yet too young to be a man” — […]

Scarlett Johansson Tops Forbes List Of The Top-Grossing Actors Of 2016

A few weeks back, Forbes dropped their list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood, using a curious formula that only included movies released through June. It meant that the list was heavy with A-list stars, and someone like Will Smith made the list, even though he starred in “Suicide Squad” which made some impressive […]

All The Deleted Trailer Scenes From ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars...

After much anticipation, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” flew into theaters over the weekend. The Gareth Edwards-directed film has a terrifically diverse cast (about time for a blockbuster) and an intriguing concept (expanding the opening crawl mention of rebels’ theft of the plans for the Death Star from ‘A New Hope’ into its own […]

The Best & Worst Of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” has opened, the box office is strong, and people on the whole seem very happy with it. Particularly at Playlist HQ, where the only division is whether we like the film a lot, or whether we love it — at least one staff member calls it their favorite movie […]

[Redacted] From ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Has An Option...

**Spoilers ahead, obviously** While the filmmakers have made clear that “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is truly a standalone movie that won’t have a sequel (it exists already, it’s called “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope“) there’s theoretically the chance that some of these new characters could pop up elsewhere in the expanding universe […]

‘Rogue One’ Is A Flawed, But Still Thrilling, Darker Chapter In...

A flawed, but often thrilling entry in the “Star Wars” universe, Lucasfilm’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” patchy or not, makes a strong and persuasive case for continuing further chronicles outside of the main Skywalker-family saga. Directed by Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla,” “Monsters”), this left-field, much darker “Star Wars” film — the rogue one – […]

Yet Another International Trailer For ‘Rogue One’ Fuels The Flames Of...

I’ll say this, “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” looks tremendous so far. The trailers have a terrific immediacy in their tone. There’s an urgency there. Something feels as if it’s at stake even though we know the outcome. The hallmark of a good prequel; it doesn’t matter if you know how it all ends (wish […]
