Is it really already awards season? You bet your ballot it is. Today, the Critics' Choice nominations were announced, and all the usual suspects are in the running for Best Picture, including Hugo, The Tree of Life, War Horse, and The Descendants. A few dark horses also garnered noms, including the polarizing Drive and Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, which really hasn't had much presence yet this award season.
The Critics' Choice Movie Awards winners will be announced live on VH1 on January 12th, and Reelz will be there on the red carpet with live coverage from the Hollywood Palladium with hosts Sam Rubin and Jessica Holmes starting at 6pm ET and 3pm PT. more nominations >> Posted 12.13.11 by Chris
The 2011 Gotham Independent Film Awards was held Monday night in New York City and panel members were "stuck" picking the Best Feature. Natalie Portman, who is on the jury, said they "chose to honor both" films, resulting in a tie between The Tree of Life and Beginners.
Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, follows a 1950's Texas family and their eldest son as he loses his innocence and later struggles with reconciling with his father. In the other Best Feature movie, Beginners, Ewan McGregor plays a young man who just discovered that his father has cancer and a male lover. See More Winners Posted 11.30.11 by reelz
The Oscars are still months away, but that doesn't mean we don't already have a surprisingly good idea what voters will be picking. A few of these pictures have already been released, but as usual most of the real front-runners have been kept for the final weeks of the year. The assumption is that voters usually choose whatever happened to be the last flick they saw in theaters (which, sadly, seems to be true in quite a few cases). The expanded Academy Awards Best Picture category once again means that up to 10 movies may be nominated.
We've made our predictions about which 10 movies will get Best Picture nominations, and ordered the list by likelihood of winning. We also pick five more that we think won't quite make the cut.

Two new movie posters for two very different movies have recently appeared online. The first new poster is a teaser poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the final chapter in Warner's 8-movie franchise based on the works of author J.K. Rowling. Like the leaked set photo that recently turned up, the new poster celebrates the climactic final battle between the forces of good, represented by Harry Potter (played by Daniel Radcliffe), and the forces of evil, represented by Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), promising "It All Ends" on July 15th. check out the cool new poster for Tree of Life >> Posted 03.29.11 by BrentJS

Writer-director Terrence Malick's (The New World) new movie, The Tree of Life, has been shrouded in mystery since it was first teased way back in August 2005. The project has gone through many changes since then, including several casting changes, with Colin Farrell, Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger all attached at one point or another before Malick settled on Brad Pitt and Sean Penn.
The first trailer for the movie premiered last night with the debut of Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, but it has yet to be released online. However, a detailed synopsis of the movie was released at the 2010 American Film Market, the annual production and distribution convention that screens upwards of 800 movies over an eight-day period, and you can get a look at the stars of the movie in a pair of still images recently published online by the L.A. Times, featuring Pitt as Mr. O'Brien, the strict father of the main character, Jack (played by Hunter McCracken) and Penn as adult Jack. read the official synopsis of the movie >> Posted 12.04.10 by BrentJS
It's a big deal when word gets out about a Terrence Malick project. The press-shy director, who studied philosophy as a Rhodes Scholar before turning to movies, made his debut in the '70s with Badlands and Days of Heaven. He then went on hiatus for 20 years before helming The Thin Red Line, and it was then another seven years until The New World.
Since Malick has given us only four movies in roughly 35 years, it seems worth noting that he has not one but two movies currently on the horizon. The Tree of Life, already in post-production, is due out sometime later this year. The movie stars Sean Penn as a young man growing up in the '50s who wrestles with the pain and suffering of human existence after experiencing personal hardships. Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain portray his parents.
Already, Malick is at work on another project, according to Deadline Hollywood. Characterized as a romantic drama, the movie has some high-profile names attached: Christian Bale, Javier Bardem, Rachel McAdams, and Olga Kurylenko have all agreed to star.
Further details about the project are unknown, including not only the story and the characters, but also the financial backers. Posted 02.04.10 by reelz
