    'Albert Nobbs' With Glenn Close Set For Fall Awards Season Release

    Liddell Entertainment & Roadside Attractions Snag U.S. RightsSummer hasn't even started to wind down yet, and blockbusters are already getting looked over in favor of Oscar predictions and upcoming fall festivals. It seems like every other day this year's Oscar race is picking up with the "War Horse" trailer hitting last week and The Weinstein Company already staking out their fall dates. Though it's small news, it looks to be big for the Best Actress category as earlier today it was announced that "Albert Nobbs," starring Glenn Close was picked up for distribution by Liddell Entertainment and Roadside Attractions with a fall awards season re...

    New Coldplay Single 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' Inspired By Random Song In 'Biutiful'

    Coldplay are no stranger to plagiarism charges. A couple years back, guitar wizard/nerd Joe Satriani accused the band of ripping off his song "If I Could Fly" on their tune "Viva La Vida." While on the face of it, the idea of any of the dudes in Coldplay (or anybody really) listening to Satriani is hilarious, the similarities are eerie and though the band claimed the similarities were coincidental, everybody settled of court. Cat Stevens also accused the band of copying his tune "Foreign Suite" for the worldwide hit, while some guy named Dan Gallagher said the band copied their video for "Strawberry Swing" off his "Something Else" (which does...

    International Panel, Iñárritu, Bier, Guadagnino & More Discuss Truth And Nationality In Filmmaking

    Foreign Oscar Nominees Talk Their Process And How They Avoid The (Melo)drama We recently had the opportunity to sit in on a panel at the American Cinematheque with some of the best foreign film nominees at last month's Golden Globes (and 2 that have gone on to become Oscar nominees): Luca Guadagnino, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Susanne Bier and Aleksei Uchitel (Radu Mihaileanu, director of "The Concert" was still on a plane coming in from France). Moderating the panel was Screen International Editor, Mike Goodridge, who led a fascinating discussion that in the end, came to about 2 hours. While we haven't recreated every word for you here, ...

    'The Rite' Leads Weak Winter Box Office

    Box office receipts were down in 2010, and the early winter season of 2011 is already vastly trailing the opening of last year. Of course, most people are forecasting doom, forgetting that early 2010 was when "Avatar" was still raking in billion dollar profits, and it would be the remaining non-"Ava...

    27 Of The Most Underrated & Underappreciated Films Of 2010

    Each year sees hundreds of movies released into theaters and inevitably, some will fall through the cracks. Our list of the underrated and underappreciated films this year not only highlights the solid, critically acclaimed pictures that for whatever reason never got a fighting chance, but also the imperfect pictures that still had a lot to admire, as well as the straight up guilty pleasures that, despite ourselves, put a smile on our face. At any rate, if you managed to catch up with all the Oscar pictures already and are wondering if there is anything else this year you missed that is worth catching up with, this is a handy guide to those f...

    Exclusive: Alejandro González Iñárritu Talks the Spirituality, Collaborative Nature of 'Biutiful'

    Director Talks His First Collabo With Javier Bardem & Working With His Friend Guillermo del ToroAlejandro González Iñárritu is a challenging filmmaker. This much we already know. With films like "21 Grams" and "Babel," he took major stars and put them in morally complicated quagmires that involved personal choice and global oppression, which made for some very uncomfortable viewing. But nothing he has done is quite as confrontational as "Biutiful," a wonderfully executed, spiritually rich meditation on life and death, told through the point of view of Javier Bardem's streetwise hustler (who himself is dying). It's a performance that won him a...
