Complete Oscar 2015 Nominations List

01.15.2015 | By |

It was a big morning for the 87th edition of the Oscars. BIRDMAN amassed the most amount of nominations with 9, as well as the artistic comedy THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL. I’ve been predicting big for THE IMITATION GAME and it came in huge with 8 nominations, but the big surprise came with AMERICAN SNIPER with 6 nods as well as BOYHOOD with 6. But no bigger pleasure is the small indie that could – WHIPLASH received a whopping 5 nominations.  Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘Fury,’ ‘Dear White People,’ ‘Birdman’

10.13.2014 | By |

We’re in the middle of October and films are beginning to become better. Some of the most compelling pieces are Brad Pitt’s war movie Fury (interested to know if it will be a Monuments Men failure or an Oscar buzz piece of cinema), Mexican director Jorge R. Gutierrez animation The Book Of Life (which has Guillermo del Toro on board as producer), plus the aspiring Best Pic Birdman from another Mexican director in Alejandro González Iñárritu. In Dear White People, this witty, smart film which tackles racism and prejudice, is easily one of the more interesting films to see this week. After the jump, you’ll see a list ranked by order of my interest. Read More

Is Alejandro González Iñárritu’s next film a comedy?

12.7.2012 | By |

Ben Affleck‘s favorite director, Mexican helmer Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, is leeaving all the heavy depressing, multi-story dramas to make… a comedy. You heard that right, a comedy.

The name of the movie will be BIRDMAN and its premise will be about a former actor, who once played an iconic superhero, as he mounts a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory. The movie will take place in one location over the course of three days as the actor juggles family, career and his sanity.. That sounds it’ll be either a hit or an embarassing failure. Nevertheless, I don’t mind evolution and aspiring to be more versatile.

Iñárritu said he co-wrote the film with Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris and Armando Bo and is eyeing a start in March.

Word is he still is planning The Revenant with Leonardo DiCaprio, but there is no pre-production date set to start.

‘Flim-Flam Man’: a new film by Alejandro Iñárritu?

'Flim-Flam Man': a new film by Alejandro Iñárritu?

We have not heard anything from Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu after his grim drama ‘Biutiful‘ starring Javier Bardem, whose film recibión two Oscar nominations 2010 for Best Foreign Film and Best Actor respectively.

So that man doing? Last year there was talk that was going to direct The Revenant with Sean Penn and Leonardo DiCaprio, but that was in the air.

Now Variety reports that Iñárritu is interested in adapting Jennifer Vogel‘s memoir Flim-Flam Man: The True Story Of My Father’s Counterfeit Life. Supposedly New Regency will be the study distributor, but none of this is official. We will be open on this to see how it moves the peanuts in the coming months. Could we see Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem in the film?

Matt Damon and Pedro Almodóvar to work together?

02.12.2011 | By |

While promoting ‘The Adjustment Bureau‘ in New York, Matt Damon confessed he has begged the brilliant Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar to do a movie together. He says he’s up to the challenge of working in a Spanish language film.

This comes at the heel of the news that Michael Cera is going to Chile to do a movie completely in Spanish with Sebastian Silva (The Maid). Will Ferrell kick-started the crossover movement when it was announced Ferrell would be doing a new comedy in Spanish with Mexican icons Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal.

“I’ve been begging Pedro Almodóvar for years to give me a job in one of his films.” Damon said of Almodovar, the Spanish director whose works include ‘Volver’ and ‘All About Your Mother’. “Some of the best directors in the world are [Hispanic], ah, Iñárritu, there’s just a ton of guys right now,” Damon explained.

Damon is factually right. Pedro Almodóvar, Guillermo Del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu, Juan José Campanella are all Spanish language directors who either have won an Oscar or have been nominated for one in the last decade.

Damon added how difficult it is for any actor to work in a different language and be successful.

“You know, I think about Penélope [Cruz] or these actresses that I’ve worked with who are acting in their second language, it’s unbelievably challenging, it’s really, really challenging, it’s a whole other thing. I’d love to work with one of those master directors in a Spanish-language film for the challenge. I feel like I can do it. Obviously as an American I wouldn’t pass as a Mexican, Puerto Rican, but no, I’d love the challenge,” he explained.

The crossover of American actors over to the Spanish side is beginning to be a wise business decision for many thespians looking for status, acclaim, and yes, attention. The question is who is the next Hollywood actor to take the leap?
