The recently released first trailer for Coco, Pixar’s next animation from Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, helped to introduce some of the characters in the film, set during the Day of the Dead in Mexico, but today we have a new short from the company that zeroes in on one particular canine. As the pal of our lead character, Dante […]


Watch: ‘Neruda’ Recites Poetry in Exclusive Clip from Pablo Larraín’s Drama

One of the most visually transfixing films of the last year is Pablo Larraín‘s Neruda, released just a few weeks after his Oscar-nominated Jackie. Telling the story of the titular communist poet, played by Luis Gnecco, and the police inspector (Gael García Bernal) that is hunting him down in a post-WWII Chile, the film is now […]

Netflix Picks Up ‘The Raid’ Director Gareth Evans’ ‘Apostle’ as Cast Expands

Michael Mann’s Definitive Edition of ‘Heat’ Will Hit Blu-ray in May

Earlier this year, Michael Mann surprised us all when the Blu-ray release of Ali featured a new cut. Usually one to tinker with his films past the point of a release — as another recent example, a new version of Blackhat exists, but was only ever screened once — when the “Director’s Definitive Edition” of Heat […]


Miles Teller to Lead Nicolas Winding Refn’s Crime Drama ‘Too Old to Die Young’

Like many directors before him as of late, Nicolas Winding Refn is heading to the small screen for his next project. Before he shoots his crazy-sounding Yakuza actioner The Avenging Silence, the Drive helmer is returning to Los Angeles for a new crime series drama titled Too Old to Die Young. Reteaming with Amazon, who distributed his Elle Fanning-led The […]


Natalie Portman to Lead ‘Bronco Belle,’ from ‘The Fits ‘ Director Anna Rose Holmer

We recently saw a new James Blake music video starring (a very pregnant) Natalie Portman and directed by The Fits helmer Anna Rose Holmer. A striking, but all too brief collaboration, we expressed hope that the two would re-team for a feature film, and just a week later, plans are already underway for a new […]

Paul Greengrass to Direct Chicago-Set Crime Drama ‘Ness’

While legendary lawman Eliot Ness has already been a central figure in De Palma’s Untouchables, Bourne helmer Paul Greengrass is planning to take his own stab at the man responsible for cleanin’ up crime in Chicago, including the takedown of infamous mob boss Al Capone. Deadline reports that the Captain Phillips director is in negotiations to direct Ness, which is penned by Oscar-winning […]


James Gray Reveals Harvey Weinstein’s Proposed Crowd-Pleasing Ending for ‘The Immigrant’

James Gray‘s The Lost City of Z arrives in the United States in a few weeks and it’s certainly a 180-degree turn — in terms of a distributor that clearly cares about the film they are handling — when compared to his last drama, The Immigrant. After premiering at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, The […]


Barry Jenkins to Write and Direct Underground Railroad Drama for Amazon Studios

After his directorial break-through Moonlight picked up three Oscars, including Best Picture, and became the highest-grossing film in A24’s library so far, Barry Jenkins is now looking for his next project — and it won’t be on the big screen. It’s been known since last fall that Jenkins would be involved with an adaptation of Colson Whitehead’s best-selling book, […]
