A Recap of the Sundance Film Festival on Today's 'CINEMA IN NOIR'

Travis Hopson from the blog Punch Drunk Critics calls in to this week's "Cinema in Noir" to chat about his experience at this year's Sundance Film Festival--the highs, the lows, and the standing ovation for FRUITVALE. He also confirmed some of my fears for the film LOVELACE, even saying the movie is not as nuanced as it pretends to me. And he lauded the Isaiah Washington starrer, BLUE CAPRICE (pictured above).

In addition to the Sundance recap, the ladies and I also share which movies we're most excited about this year, including TWELVE YEARS A SLAVE, OLDBOY and CATCHING FIRE, and get down to the nitty gritty of the CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON sequel that's in the works.

7 New Images from the Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy Comedy 'IDENTITY THIEF'

I'm a Jason Bateman fan, and I'm also a Melissa McCarthy fan (from way back when you folks were not watching her nuanced genius on the underrated TV show "Gilmore Girls"). But I was not a fan of the trailer for the pair's upcoming comedy, IDENTITY THIEF. It just seemed....hammy. See for yourself:

Right...but I'm hoping for the best. Here's a synopsis of the film if you're not familiar with it (from Collider):

Horrible Bosses’ Jason Bateman and Bridesmaids’ Melissa McCarthy lead the cast of Identity Thief, an all-star comedy in which a regular guy is forced to extreme measures to clear his name. With everything to lose after his identity is stolen, he’ll find out how crazed you can get trying to settle a bad credit score.

Unlimited funds have allowed Diana (McCarthy) to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”… and it belongs to an accounts rep (Bateman) who lives halfway across the U.S.

With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

The film also stars Amanda Peet, Robert Patrick (currently starring in Gangster Squad), Morris Chestnut, Jon Favreau and Eric Stonestreet (TV's "Modern Family"). Oh, and rapper T.I. is evidently in the movie. Seth Gordon, who directed Bateman in Horrible Bosses (which I found hilarious) helmed the project, while Craig Mazin (who scribed The Hangover sequels) penned the film. 

Again, hammy. But this may be the type of film that is propelled by the actors who bring it to life. And Goodness knows, Bateman and McCarthy can certainly turn a script around with his deadpan humor and her silly but no-holds-barred banter. It may just work. In any case, here are a couple of new images from the movie to tickle your funny bone:

IDENTITY THIEF hits theaters February 8th.

First Trailer for Ethan and Joel Coen's 'INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS'

If you know anything about Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, The Big Lebowski, Fargo), better known as "The Coen Brothers," you know and appreciate the fact that they don't necessarily abide by the rules, and have essentially branded their own version of humor. And as directors, it's extremely important to have a style, a voice so to speak, that will trademark each project. And, hate them or love them (with the exception of very few films, I fall under the latter persuasion), the Coen brothers have that down to a science.

The duo's upcoming film, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, is more evidence of that. Part O Brother, Where Art Thou?, part Barton Fink, the film follows a lone and seemingly struggling folk singer (Oscar Isaac) as he navigates the 1960s.

There's not a whole lot of plot information available about it, but Carey Mulligan, John Goodman and Justin Timberlake (yeah, I know, but he did release a music video just this morning), so that should also count for something. The trailer seems very Coen-esque, but possibly with more existentialism. Check it out:

In the Coen brothers I trust (only they could get your hyped for a trailer featuring a folk musician and a cat). The clip doesn't exactly leave me too intrigued, but I remain hopeful. What say you?

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS releases in theaters February 8th.

First Trailer for 'OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN', Starring Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart

I can't say I'm too enthusiastic about another action movie where the White House--or the president--is somehow compromised by a crazy terrorist and it's up to one guy to save everyone (unless it's the supposed 24 movie, because I am all for that).

But at least director Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Brooklyn's Finest) is behind the upcoming film OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN. And the cast, with the exception of once promising star Gerard Butler, is pretty righteous. More on the movie below (from Collider):

When the White House (Secret Service Code: “Olympus”) is captured by a terrorist mastermind and the President is kidnapped, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As our national security team scrambles to respond, they are forced to rely on Banning’s inside knowledge to help retake the White House, save the President, and avert an even bigger disaster.

Apparently Butler is that heroic presidential guard who saves the day, as usual. But maybe he'll surprise me and make me care about him in a movie again? I'd love that....

Eckhart plays the president, and the film also stars Angela Bassett, Ashley Judd, Morgan Freeman, Dylan McDermot, Melissa Leo and Robert Forster.

I have to say, I'm surprised to see Judd in a movie. How long has it been? Even though, judging by the trailer alone, it looks like her role is a brief one. On the other hand, I'm desperate to see Bassett in a role worthy of her talent, but I don't think this is going to be the one. Anyway, check out the new trailer below:

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN releases in theaters March 22nd.

'MOTHER OF GEORGE' Star Isaach De Bankolé Gushes Over the Art of Fillmmaking at Sundance

While reviews of his new film MOTHER OF GEORGE begin to pour in, actor Isaach De Bankolé (Casino Royale, TV's 24) reflects on his road to Sundance and what inspired him to act. He says, "I never thought this kind of work existed in the world. Every day I get to be a different person."

In the video, released from the film institute, Bankolé discusses the film, which details the lives of Nigerian-American newlyweds Adenike (The Walking Dead's Danai Gurira) and Ayodele (Bankolé) as they settle in New York City.

The film also stars Yaya Alafia (The Messenger, Tron: Legacy). 

Bankolé also remarks about the first film that inspired him to act -- Strangers in Paradise. Check out the full clip below:

Directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman Talk 'LOVELACE'

Another film that's been gaining a lot of buzz, both good and bad, has been LOVELACE, which follows the rise and fall of Hollywood's "Deep Throat" porn princess Linda Lovelace. The film stars Les Misérables actress Amanda Seyfried in the title role. More on it below:

Deep Throat, the first pornographic feature film to be a mainstream success, was an international sensation in 1972 and made its star, Linda Lovelace, a media darling. Years later the ‘poster girl for the sexual revolution’ revealed a darker side to her story.

And it's that "sexual revolution" the two directors of the film talk about in an interview at the Sundance Film Festival shown below:

The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, James Franco, Adam Brody, Sharon Stone and Hank Azaria. If anything, folks will certainly be talking about this.

Bill Pullman Discusses the Joys of Indie Filmmaking and His New Sundance Film, 'MAY IN THE SUMMER'

Humility is always refreshing from a renowned actor like Bill Pullman. The Independence Day star sat down to share his thoughts on independent filmmaking at the Sundance Film Festival this past weekend, and you can tell that he loves what he does. After nearly thirty years in Hollywood, still beams with pride when he talks about the indie film process, even saying that "the most interesting work is in independent pictures."

He discusses the journey to his latest film premiering at Sundance, MAY IN THE SUMMER. Full synopsis after the jump (from IMDB):

High off the success of her first book and planning to marry ZIAD, her sensible, stable and studious fiance, MAY BRENNAN has it all. At least that's what she'd like people to believe. Reunited with her family in Amman, she's thrust back into the chaos of her former existence. Her headstrong mother NADINE, a born-again Christian disapproves of her Muslim fiance so thoroughly she plans to boycott the wedding. Her younger sisters DALIA and YASMINE behave like her children. And her estranged father EDWARD is suddenly and suspiciously interested in making amends. As her wedding day looms, May finds herself more and more confronted by the trauma of her parents divorce. And soon, her once carefully structured life spins hopelessly out of control. 

Take a look at the full interview below:

"Cinema in Noir" Interview with Independent Spirit Award Nominee and 'MIDDLE OF NOWHERE' Star David Oyelowo

On today's "Cinema in Noir" podcast, we chatted with the ubiquitous Middle of Nowhere, Lincoln and Jack Reacher star David Oyelowo. He gave us the lowdown on working with director Ava Duvernay and candidly shared his thoughts on the Hollywood machine and his Independent Spirit Award nomination for Middle of Nowhere.

And we also dedicated some time to a pretty heated discussion of the hit TV show "Scandal," which continues to gain viewers but has turned some of us off with its suggestive themes and other topics. As someone who fell from watching the show back in November, I particularly didn't care for the soapy romance and the poorly constructive characters (no matter the fact that the show is helmed by Shonda Rhimes and stars the talented Kerry Washington).

Lastly, co-host Rebecca Theodore-Vachon gave her review of the new Mark Wahlberg/Russell Crowe movie, Broken City, and we all chimed in about the below new trailer for the upcoming Lifetime TV movie, Betty & Coretta (starring Angela Bassett as Coretta Scott King and Mary J. Bige as Betty Shabazz):

Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and John Malkovich Take On Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins in the New Trailer for 'RED 2'

As a die-hard Expendables fan, I'd normally be all about action figures of a certain age emptying machine guns and defying the laws of gravity and arthritis aches to save the world from eternal damnation using their fists and snide remarks.

But, 2010's Red just didn't cut it for me. Perhaps it was for its lack of zest or slick plot, but it it just didn't gel well.

In any case, the studio has moved ahead with a sequel to the film, aptly titled RED 2. And it looks like it's more of the same, except the addition of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Anthony Hopkins. More on the film below (from Movie Fanatic):

In Red 2, the high-octane action-comedy sequel to the worldwide sleeper hit, retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device.

To succeed, they'll need to survive an army of relentless assassins, ruthless terrorists and power-crazed government officials, all eager to get their hands on the next-generation weapon. The mission takes Frank and his motley crew to Paris, London and Moscow. Outgunned and outmanned, they have only their cunning wits, their old-school skills, and each other to rely on as they try to save the world -- and stay alive in the process.

Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, John Malkovich and Hopkins' Hitchcock costar Helen Mirren have all reprised their roles from the first film. Check out the new trailer:

What do you think? RED 2 hits theaters August 2nd.
