Zach Braff Joins Robert De Niro Pic ‘The Comeback Trail’ — Cannes
Exclusive: Zach Braff is joining Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones and Morgan Freeman in writer-director George Gallo’s action-comedy The Comeback Trail.

De Niro will play Max Barber, a man in debt to a mob boss (played by Freeman), who creates an insurance fraud by casting washed-up, suicidal cowboy/movie star Duke Montana (Jones) in a poorly written Western with the intention of killing him during the first days of filming. Duke somehow rises to the occasion, redeems his past misdeeds and brings Max and others along on the same journey.

Braff will play Max’s producing partner. The film will reunite him with Freeman whom he directed in the 2017 Warner Brothers feature Going In Style.

Josh Posner co-wrote the film’s screenplay, which is based on the 1970s film of the same name, written, directed and produced by the late Harry Hurwitz. Lensing is due to begin in June in New Mexico.

All 19 Tim Burton Movies Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)

All 19 Tim Burton Movies Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)
How does Tim Burton‘s “Dumbo” stack up with the offbeat auteur’s other films, like “Batman” and “Edward Scissorhands”?

Ed Wood

Writers Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander have established themselves as the masters of telling the story of America through the eyes of its oddballs, and their sensibility blended perfectly with Burton’s, who clearly saw a lot of himself in this story of a singular, devoted artist with a love of old monster movies and a drive to tell his stories. It’s one of the greatest movies about Hollywood, about risk, about determination, about art, ever made.

Pee-wee’s Big Adventure

One of the great picaresque road movies in cinema history, this tale of Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens) and his quest to recover his stolen bike marked Burton’s feature debut, yet it established so much of what he would do best in film, from spotlighting an

Looking Back at the 5 Most Iconic Horror Films of 1999

Twenty years on, E.J. Moreno looks at the five most iconic horror films of 1999…

The horror genre twenty years ago is a much different beast than it is now. Not regarding quality, as there are good and bad films in any year, but the way the studios handle the genre and how viewers digest the movies. Two of the films featured in this article are in the top grossing films of 1999, where not a single horror film made it into the top ten highest grossing of 2018. Even with numbers like that, horror was in a rough spot with audiences; this is post-Scream where slashers are over, and the genre is barely pumping out original pieces. Now you have arthouse horrors like Suspiria or Hereditary, a new Blumhouse film or three, and the next James Wan ghost film. There’s something fresh for everyone, but sadly 1999 didn’t have a vast selection of offerings.

Aubrey Plaza Takes on Host-Less Oscars During Independent Spirit Awards Monologue

Aubrey Plaza Takes on Host-Less Oscars During Independent Spirit Awards Monologue
Aubrey Plaza hosted this year's Independent Spirit Awards and had the Academy Awards in the crosshairs during her monologue. The 91st annual Oscars are being held this evening, but there is not a host after the Kevin Hart controversy that was sparked late last year and then spilled into this year. The Academy has chosen to go without a host and many are skeptical as to how it will go. There have also been rumors that a secret guest may actually be hosting, but that has yet to be confirmed.

One of the more obvious ways to poke fun at The Academy Awards is for its lack of host. But she didn't stop there as she made more references to the annual event throughout the night, including the fact that the Oscars often nominates the same movies for Best Picture that the Spirit Awards does for Best Feature. However, Aubrey

Indie Spirits: Even Without a Best Director Win, This Year’s Show Was Still About Female Creative Power

Indie Spirits: Even Without a Best Director Win, This Year’s Show Was Still About Female Creative Power
The tone of this year’s Film Independent Spirit Awards was set early, when host Aubrey Plaza kicked off the annual awards ceremony with a girl-powered pre-taped show opener, which featured Hollywood heavyweights like Marcia Gay Harden, Rosanna Arquette, Christina Ricci, Sharon Stone, and Marisa Tomei playing at summoning indie film-fueled power in literal witch garb. Putting the focus on women and their impact on the industry isn’t exactly groundbreaking these days, but the Spirits weren’t just going for cheap gags in service of a laugh or two.

Unlike other awards season to-do’s, the Spirits nominated plenty of women, including in the Best Director category, a space that still doesn’t typically find room to recognize the work of creators who happen to be female. Plaza’s opening monologue pointed out that 60 percent of the ceremony’s nominated directors were women, and though she admitted that really

Aubrey Plaza’s Spirit Awards Monologue Puts the Oscars, Netflix, and Bryan Singer on Blast
In a year when the Academy Awards will air without a host for the first time in decades, the 2019 Film Independent Spirit Awards proved in its opening moments why having a host can be so essential to the awards show experience. And it was all thanks to Aubrey Plaza. Picking up the gig from previous Spirit Awards hosts John Mulaney and Nick Kroll, Plaza knocked it out of the park with her opening.

A pre-taped segment kicked off the ceremony, featuring Plaza opposite actresses such as Christina Ricci, Marisa Tomei, Marcia Gay Harden, and more. The women were conducting a blood oath to help Plaza become this year’s Spirit Awards host. Sharon Stone popped up to present the virgin sacrifice: “Stranger Things” star Finn Wolfhard.

“We shall reject commercial cinema and pledge our lives to the pursuit of dangerous art!” Plaza shouted. “Speak to me Altman, Ashby, Antonioni! Bring

The premise here is modern, Safe (they emphasise that a lot in the sales material and then throughout the film) out of town (that is important) apartment that is able to lock out the horrors of the outside world but in doing so traps the horrors within.

When we see the apartment for the first time we get a long, lingering drive shot of what looks like one of those tacky doctored photos you see showing what the new block of flats is going to look like in the latest City gentrification project.

Christina Ricci, Hollywood Contrarian, Doesn’t Care What You Think Of Her

Christina Ricci, Hollywood Contrarian, Doesn’t Care What You Think Of Her
Christina Ricci knows people judge her. She grew up in the public eye as the Goth girl, the alternative chick, the youthful indie darling. For her, those tacit critiques just provide the excuse to execute another hard turn.

“I’m a natural contrarian. So anytime someone tries to tell me what I am, I immediately change and I’m something else,” she said. “I can’t help it; I’m a total asshole in that respect. I never give people that. Sometimes it’s terrible and I should really just allow people to view me the way they want to, but I have a real desire and drive to define myself and to not be defined by others.”

As a child star, she was best known for her role as the malevolent Wednesday Addams in “The Addams Family.” In her teen years, she demonstrated a fondness for outrageous comments about

The Cinematographer Is In: Jordan Mintzer's "Conversations with Darius Khondji"

  • MUBI
Delicatessen (1991)Growing up in the mid-to-late nineties, the pan-and-scan generation, I can remember the first time I saw a movie that was shot by Darius Khondji. Se7en, the cinematographer’s first American film and best-known work, looked scarier that any movie I’d seen other than The Shining; it was miasmic and biblically unclean, with deep shadows that seeped and stuck like gunk, rain pelting from a pre-apocalyptic sky. Then came The City of Lost Children, a dark storybook fantasy of Gilliam-esque camera angles, about a squalid port town lost in fog and a mad scientist’s lair built on piles out in a sludge-green sea. That one I watched maybe twenty times, always with sympathy for the disembodied brain Uncle Irvin and for Krank, the child-snatching villain who cannot dream.Later there was Alien: Resurrection, the video for Madonna’s “Frozen,” and The Ninth Gate, another movie I had
