Inherent Vice Trailer


Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) is a private investigator living in Los Angeles during the tail end of the 1960s. When his ex-girlfriend, Shasta Fay Hepworth (Katherine Waterston) reappears one day, she drags him into a complex series of events which will shatter his calm and quite life, and force him into a dangerously hilarious game involving murderous loan sharks, surfers, hustlers, dopers and the mysterious 'Golden Fang'. Her request, such as it is, is to help her new boyfriend, Mickey Wolfmann (Eric Roberts) from a plot by his wife Sloane (Serena Scott Thomas) and her boyfriend which will send Wolfmaan to the 'loony bin'. As if that wasn't complex enough, things are only going to get worse for Sportello, as the 70s are fast approaching and ready to turn his life upside down.

Woody Allen Emma Stone Joaquin Phoenix Parker Posey

And in random mid week news, a man has been arrested after allegedly causing trouble on the set of Woody Allen’s new movie. Allen is currently filming on location near Brown University in Providence, for an as-of-yet untitled project to be released in 2015.

Woody Allen
The untitled movie is due out sometime in 2015. Filming will continue as scheduled.

Officers of the local police department were called on the scene on Tuesday, August 5, after the suspect hurled a chair at security guards and ran off. He had previously arrived on the set and started asking “weird questions”about the movie's stars, who include Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix and Parker Posey. The incident raises concerns about the security of the actors and everyone involved in the project, however the project will continue as scheduled.

Ladies And Gentleman, Joaquin Phoenix Is Your 'Doctor Strange'


Joaquin Phoenix

Joaquin Phoenix, the Oscar nominee often tipped as one of the world's greatest actors following stellar turns in Gladiator, The Master, and Her, is in talks to star in Doctor Strange. Until now, Benedict Cumberbatch and Jared Leto were mostly strongly linked to the role though, according to Deadline, Marvel only has eyes for Phoenix.

Joaquin PhoenixJoaquin Phoenix turned in a strong performance for 'Her'

The studio has been teasing references to the Doctor for months now, most notably in the mega-hit Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Scott Derrickson is directing a script from Jon Spaihts, though the first draft was penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer.

Could Joaquin Phoenix Be Marvel's Doctor Strange?


Joaquin Phoenix

Variety reports that Joaquin Phoenix, star of Her and Walk the Line, is in early talks to take on the mantel of Marvel's latest superhero to undergo the movie treatment. The role was previously linked to British actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hardy

Joaquin Phoenix
Could Joaquin be the new superhero on the block?

For those unfamiliar with the comics, Doctor Strange is the monicker of Stephen Strange, an egotistical former neurosurgeon turned protector of Earth thanks to his magical abilities. The character was mentioned very briefly in Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, sending fans into an internet frenzy and confirming that the character was very much alive in the Marvel cinematic universe.

'The Immigrant' Has Oscars Written All Over It [Trailer + Pictures]


Joaquin Phoenix Jeremy Renner

The temptation to predict Oscar winners in April is one that should be avoided, but equally one that is difficult to resist. One look at the Counsellor got people handing out statuettes in Spring last year, but we’ve got a feeling the same mistake won’t be made for ‘The Immigrant’.

The ImmigrantMade up to the nines, Joaquin Phoenix, Marion Cottilard and Jeremy Renner star in 'The Immigrant'

Like the fabled streets walked while trying to realise the American dream, ‘The Immigrant’ is paved with gold, glistening throughout the trailer with a sun blushed tint. Marion Cottilard plays the intrepid Ewa, who – having been promised a savoir in the form of Joaquin Phoenix’s character, Bruno Weiss – falls into the darker depths of an American nightmare.

The Immigrant Trailer


Ewa Cybulski and her sister Magda are Polish immigrants in search of new lives in the prosperous New York City. However, no sooner have they arrived in the US than Magda is quarantined for a suspected illness and Ewa is forced to venture out into the strange new city alone. With nowhere to go and no friends to speak of, a desperate Ewa bumps into a charmingly dapper but dubious man named Bruno Weiss. He agrees to offer her a bed and money-earning prospects, but the job he wants her to do is far from what she was looking for. He enlists her as a prostitute at his entertainment establishment, and it's there Ewa meets his much more pleasant cousin Orlando the Magician who, stunned by her beauty, convinces her that she needs to be happy and helps her find the courage to escape her ordeal.

True Detective Season 2: Which Pairing Can Pick Up From Cohle And Hart?


Matthew Mcconaughey Woody Harrelson HBO Tom Hanks Paul Dano Christian Bale Giancarlo Esposito Lupita Nyong'o Sebastian Arcelus Bryan Cranston Jon Hamm Casey Affleck Joaquin Phoenix

Nic Pizzolatto put the sincerity and quality of True Detective’s story over multiple seasons of the show, asserting that a strict 8-episode format would be condusive to a strong third act. And judging by the critical claim he’s received – his creation is being talked about in the same breath as The Wire – one is inclined to trust the man who risked everything to write the new HBO anthology series.

True DetectiveWoody Harrelson [L] and Matthew McConuaghey [R] as Hart and Cohle in 'True Detective'

“One of the reasons I wanted to do an anthology format is I like stories with endings. I like a good third act. And continuing serial dramas, they tend to have really good beginnings and really long middles and then sort of have to hustle to develop an ending. And I like the idea of telling a self-contained story,” explained Pizzolatto.

Her Review


Extraordinary

With only a hint of a futuristic setting, Spike Jonze takes a remarkably honest look at human emotions as a man and his computer's intelligent operating system fall madly in love with each other. Utterly grounded in believable characters and situations, this is a boldly inventive exploration of how we connect with each other. It's also one of the most involving, witty and evocative movies of the year.

It's set just a few years into the future, when we've essentially done away with keyboards and talk to our phones and computers. So Theodore (Phoenix) works in a company that writes letters for people who want a more tactile way of communicating. While trying not to let his recent divorce from Caroline (Mara) influence his work, his friends (Adams and Letscher) set him up on a blind date with a sexy woman (Wilde). But he's not quite ready to move on until he begins opening up to his new interactive operative system, which calls herself Samantha (voiced by Johansson). And she has such an open-hearted personality that Theodore can't help but fall for her.

The film has a breezy, fable-like tone that allows heavy themes to emerge without weighing us down. Indeed, the central idea is that relationships are difficult because we can't help but evolve individually, which sometimes means drifting apart. Obviously, this has huge ramifications when your partner is a limitless computer mind that will never stop expanding. But Theodore doesn't want to think about this; he is frightened by the idea that Samantha is changing. Yes, despite the vaguely surreal premise, the film is packed with things we readily identify with.

The Seth Rogen 'Starring' Parody Of 'Her' Might Be The Best Thing You See All Week [Video]


Seth Rogen Spike Jonze Philip Seymour Hoffman Joaquin Phoenix Scarlett Johansson

Her
Her might not be the most prominent Oscar contender, but it is still one helluva movie

First off we were treated to a Phillip Seymour Hoffman-featuring parody of the new Spike Jonze movie Her, one that used cut-up snippets of the Oscar-winner's film repertoire in place of Scarlett Johansson's soothing utterances. Last night (25 Jan.) we saw Jonah Hill lampoon the film on Saturday Night Live, but earlier this week we're sure the best parody of them all was uploaded on to YouTube.

'Him' doesn't actually star any big names, but it does feature one heck of a good impression of the loveable Canadian comic Seth Rogen. The YouTube channel Paul Gale Comedy created and uploaded the parody, which pokes fun at the Oscar contender as well as gently ribbing Rogen, mocking his penchant for da 'erb and also mirroring his distinctive laugh spot on. It's probably the best portrayal of Seth Rogen since Seth Rogen played Seth Rogen in This Is The End.

Remember when we told you about the Fight Club minus Tyler Durden scene lovingly brought to the world by editor/magician Richard Trammell? Well he’s at again, this time with Spike Jonez’s Oscar-nominated ‘Her’, although this time the sultry tones of Scarlett Johansson are replaced with the rather stark cadence of Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

HerJoaquin Phoenix falls in love with his OS in 'Her'

The trailer sees Theodor – played by Phoenix – fall in love with his new and scarily innovate OS Samantha, but Samantha is now an incredibly offensive, sandy-haired man in his mid-40s.

Shia LaBeouf Does A Joaquin, Explains Confusing Incidents As "Meta-Modernist Performance Art"


Shia LaBeouf Joaquin Phoenix

Shia LaBeouf has pulled what is known nowadays in showbusiness as a "Joaquin Phoenix," whereby one goes undercover, creating a series of provocative stunts to make the media believe that one's marbles have truly been lost then claiming it was all for art. The actor confused fans recently with a string of bizarre and out-of-the-blue incidents which included ripping off artist Daniel Clowes' work, apologising via a sky-writer, and a string of weird tweets over-apologising for his actions.

Many probably assumed that LaBeouf, the former child star of Even Stevens, had simply gone off the rails a bit, as the Macaulay Culkins of the world have done before him. The media scratched its collective head and decided to laugh about the Transformer star's weird happenings. The chain of incidents seemingly ended a few weeks back with LaBeouf announcing that he was "retiring from all public life" after all the negative attention he was receiving.

Joaquin Phoenix And Amy Adams - Her Video Interview


Video Interview with Joaquin Phoenix And Amy Adams

Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams talk about 'Her'; the new sci-fi romance film by Spike Jonze in which they star; in a press junket interview.

'On a script that was so unique and full of these big ideas and this wonderful heart and accessible emotion... why wouldn't you do this movie?' Joaquin says on being asked what drew him into the script. The two actors' characters are good friends in the movie who share a similar need for emotional comfort. 'We have in common that we're both at an emotional crossroads and looking to do things differently', Amy explains. 'The great thing about Spike is that nothing's ever done in a real obvious way; it's through conversation and through details and you learn through the brilliant dialogue that he writes where these characters are.'

Theodore Twombley is a reserved man going through the hardest time of his life with his divorce from his childhood sweetheart Catherine. One day, he decides to buy a new kind of OS that has an artificial intelligence that can evolve into having almost human like feelings. He chooses a female identity for his OS and thus meets the disembodied Samantha who offers him company with her witty and insightful remarks and frequent flattery. When he finds out his friend Amy has also made a friend out of her estranged husband's OS, he begins to feel that his feelings towards Samantha may not be so strange at all and allows himself to fall deeply in love with her. However, as much as they have managed to bond, he starts to worry about the consequences of limitations of their relationship and begins to wonder just how genuine their relationship really is.

To get your head round Spike Jonze's delicate new sci-fi movie, Her, you need to believe absolutely and unequivocally in the premise: that a sad and lonely man is capable of falling in love with a computerised operating system, think Siri 10 years down the line, and forming a sincere attachment.

The L.A. Film Critics Association Shed No Light On Oscars Race With Her/Gravity Tie


Joaquin Phoenix Sandra Bullock George Clooney Bruce Dern Alfonso Cuaron

We normally look at the precursory awards in the lead up to the Oscars as a bellwether for Academy predictions, but this year’s gongs have gone to a varied set of recipients, giving us no indication as to which direction the golden statuettes will be heading come March 2014.

Joaquin Phoenix in HerJoaquin Phoenix in Her

And it appears as though The Los Angeles Film Critics Association are just as muddled with their hypothesis - they couldn’t split the difference between Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity and Spike Jonez’s latest effort, Her. The first is an epic journey through space with incredible visuals, while the second is a futuristic love story starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, but they both received the top prize from the LAFCA last night (Sunday 9, December).

Wait, Should We Be Calling Spike Jonze's 'Her' An Oscar Contender?


Spike Jonze Joaquin Phoenix Scarlett Johansson

Spike Jonze's off-beat romantic-drama Her was unexpectedly named best film of the year by the National Board of Review on Wednesday (December 4, 2013). The long-established and well respected educational organisation also gave Jonze the best director award for the movie, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as an office worker who falls in love with his computer system, voiced by Scarlett Johansson.

Joaquin Phoenix HerJoaquin Phoenix in Spike Jonze's 'Her'

Jonze also wrote the script, but was denied an awards hattrick when the NBR's best original screenplay award went to the Coen Brothers for Inside Llewyn Davis. The Martin Scorsese-directed The Wolf of Wall Street took the award for best adapted screenplay, capping an evening of surprise winners that must all now be mentioned in Oscars discussions. Until now, the likes of 12 Years a Slave, Gravity and Captain Phillips had dominated nominations talk, though with American Hustle winning best movie at the New York Critics awards earlier this week and Inside Llewyn Davis beating 12 Years a Slave at the Gotham Awards, we probably need to start rethinking our speculation for the major ceremonies.

Her Trailer


Theodore Twombley wasn't exactly having the best time in his life. He never socialised, seldom spoke to his family and he had just been through a distressing marriage separation. That was, until, he met Samantha; a computer operating system designed to fit his every need. With a voice more human than you could imagine from a machine and a witty, caring but slightly nosey personality, Theodore becomes more and more attached to her. However, soon the distinction between man and machine becomes evident when he begins to fall deeply in love with her, despite the fact that she knows little about how human relationships work. With her gradually reciprocating love, Theodore gets caught in a crisis when he is forced to come to terms with the fact that the only person he wants to spend the rest of his life with isn't even a physical entity.

This romantic sci-fi tells the heart-breaking but troubling story of the relationship between human beings and their beloved machines. With a thoroughly talented cast, it has been directed and written by Spike Jonze ('Where the Wild Things Are', 'Being John Malkovich', 'Adaptation.') and it set to feature in cinemas in the US on November 20th 2013.

'The Great Gatsby' Opening Cannes Doesn't Seem Like Such A Good Idea Anymore


Cannes Film Festival Steven Spielberg Leonardo Dicaprio Michael Douglas Coen Brothers James Gray Joaquin Phoenix Alexander Payne

The 2013 Cannes Film Festival will open on Wednesday (May 15, 2013) with Baz Luhrmann's 3-D version of The Great Gatsby, a throwback to the roaring twenties adapted from F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic book of the same name. The announcement caused unrest earlier in the year given that Gatsby would already have been released in the U.S by the time Cannes came round (it was released last week) though there's a couple of other things to worry about.

The Great Gatsby opened in the United States to fairly lacklustre reviews, dampening the buzz surrounding the start of the 12 day Cannes Film Festival. The critics have already seen it. The critics didn't like it very much. "This dreadful film even derogates the artistry of Fitzgerald, who wrote "The Great Gatsby" while living on Long Island and in Europe," said the Wall Street Journal. It holds a score of 48% on Rotten Tomatoes. 

Nevertheless, champagne bottles will be popped, deals will be made and Harvey Weinstein will be wandering around deciding which movie to snap up as his next Oscar winner at this year's festival. Stars expected to attend include Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Ryan Gosling, Emma Watson and the legendary Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachan. "This is the hardest 10 days of the year for me. There are always three or four movies that are exceptional and you have to find them so it is a detective job," said Tom Bernard, co-president and co-founder of Sony Pictures Classics.

SAG Awards Tonight: Who'll Win What?


Daniel Day Lewis Hugh Jackman Joaquin Phoenix Jennifer Lawrence Tommy Lee Jones Bradley Cooper Robert De Niro Sally Field

The Screen Actors Guild Awards is tonight (Jan 27) and it looks like it could be a close one. What's more, the SAG Awards usually offer a good indication of who will win what at the 'big one' that is the Academy Awards in February. So who'll win what? Here's our prediction of who may emerge victorious at tonight's ceremony.

Best Actor: Ok, this is a bit of a no-brainer. With a Golden Globe and just about every other award under the sun already in his possession, Daniel Day-Lewis looks like the clear favourite to take home the top award. With Cannes winner Joaquin Phoenix not even on the shortlist, it looks like Golden Globe winner Hugh Jackman might be his only competition for the award, but it probably wont be much of a contest.

Best Actress: Again, this one might be a bit of a predetermination, but Jennifer Lawrence is looking like the favourite to take home the top acting prize for the ladies. Even though she's battling pneumonia at the moment, it is believed that she'll show up anyway and with that kind of determination then frankly she deserves the award.
