My favorite part of the Oscar award season is all the roundtables with the nominees. Thanks to THR you can watch Jared Leto talk about waxing his legs, Julia Roberts discuss the scariest on-set moments and Alfonso Cuaron elaborate on dropping out of film school.
Watch the actors and actresses roundtables below:
All that glitters is not gold and as such not every television series is as precious as we hoped it would be. There are a couple shows I watch now that I don’t even like but keep hoping they’ll get better because some shows have crappy first seasons but somehow get a second, and then actually do a decent job the next time around. In true TV loving form, I’ve compiled a list of shows to start in 2014 that I look forward to – giving a chance!
Here are the nominations for the 86th Academy Awards or “The Oscars” is you’re nasty. The leaders are American Hustle and Gravity lead with 10 nominations each, 12 Years a Slave has 9 nominations. I’m happy to see Wolf of Wall Street earn five nominations including Best Picture, Director (Scorsese), Best Actor (DiCaprio), Supporting Actor (Jonah Hill) and Adapted Screenplay. Feel free to make your own assumptions about who got snubbed (Robert Redford) and shake your fist in the comments.
The 86th Oscars will be broadcast March 2nd on ABC.
The first trailer for director Christopher Nolan’s new film Interstellar is here and it’s quite the tease. The sci-fi flick stars a stellar (ah?) cast and is believed to involve “time travel” and “alternate dimensions”, so that’s awesome. The film features a team of space travelers going through a newly discovered wormhole on a voyage through to transcend previous limitations on human space travel.
The project began development in June 2006 when Paramount Pictures and filmmaker Steven Spielberg announced plans for a science fiction film based on a treatment by Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist. That fact among others you can read in our “What is Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar?” post.
The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet, and Matt Damon.
Interstellar opens November 7, 2014.
Here is a new trailer for the upcoming HBO detective series starring Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey about hunting serial killers in Louisiana. It seems every time that a new trailer comes out for this show it makes me feel bad that it’s still 2013. Let’s get a move on!
True Detective premieres Sunday, January 12th and consists of eight episodes.

Here is another fantastic trailer [here is the first crazy one] for director Martin Scorsese‘s new film The Wolf of Wall Street which after some possible release date change talk will thankfully be opening this Christmas. The final run-time is 165 minutes, which isn’t a bad thing with Martin Scorsese and Leo working together on a dark comedy. Jonah Hill and teeth are looking great too.
Based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, the film follows Leonardo DiCaprio as a hard-partying, drug-addicted stockbroker who was indicted in 1998 for security fraud and money laundering and served a 22-month federal prison stretch.
The film also stars Kyle Chandler, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, Margot Robbie, Jon Bernthal, and Rob Reiner.
The Wolf of Wall Street opens on December 25th, watch the trailer below:
HBO’s upcoming “anthology drama series” True Detective is looking great and should take us into Game of Thrones hype just perfectly next year. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey star as two detectives whose lives collide and interweave during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. It’s going to be dark and crazy, that’s how I like my TV.
True Detective premieres Sunday, January 12th and consists of eight episodes.
In 2012, Louisiana State Police Detectives Rust Cohle and Martin Hart are brought in to revisit a homicide case they worked in 1995. As the inquiry unfolds in present day through separate interrogations, the two former detectives narrate the story of their investigation, reopening unhealed wounds, and drawing into question their supposed solving of a bizarre ritualistic murder in 1995. The timelines braid and converge in 2012 as each man is pulled back into a world they believed they’d left behind. In learning about each other and their killer, it becomes clear that darkness lives on both sides of the law.
We have the first full-length trailer for the upcoming HBO limited series True Detective below and I encourage you to watch it and set the date, it looks fantastic.
The series is described as an “elevated serial narrative” that uses multiple perspectives and time frames. Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey star as two detectives whose lives collide and entwine during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The show is envisioned as an anthology, and these first eight episodes will tell a complete story involving McConaughey and Harrelson’s characters.
True Detective will premiere on HBO in January.
When a Christoper Nolan movie is set to be released, it’s safe to say anticipation is high. The directors track record is one of the best of the last fifteen years, he’s making great movie is what I’m getting at. His next film is Interstellar, and while a lot of what the movie end up being is still up for speculation, we do know a few things that lead us to believe he’s once again in line to make something great.
The plot is believed to involve “time travel” and “alternate dimensions”, so that’s awesome. The film features a team of space travelers going through a wormhole, when the wormhole is newly discovered, a team of explorers embark on a voyage through it to transcend previous limitations on human space travel. It’s said to be based mainly on the scientific theories and script treatment of renowned theoretical physicist, Kip Thorne.
This will be Christopher Nolan’s first major film project since completing his Batman trilogy and “taking a break” when he produced Man of Steel. Interstellar will be filmed with a combination of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography. Principal photography began in August 2013 in Alberta, Canada.
Recently it became known that Matt Damon will be playing a minor role in Interstellar, as he’ll only be on set for two weeks in Iceland out of the four month shoot. The actor joins an incredible cast as you can see below.
Release date: November 7, 2014
Directed by: Christopher Nolan
Written by: Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, Matt Damon, Michael Caine, John Lithgow.
The Fort Macleod Gazette is reporting that the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.
In regards to how this project came to be and how the likes of Friday the 13th and South Park are related, let’s take a look:
- The project began development in June 2006 when Paramount Pictures and filmmaker Steven Spielberg announced plans for a science fiction film based on a treatment by Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist.
- By March 2007, Jonathan Nolan was hired to write a screenplay for Interstellar.
- In January 2013, Christopher Nolan entered negotiations with Paramount and Warner Bros. to direct Interstellar.
- By the following March, Nolan was confirmed to direct Interstellar, which would be produced under his label Syncopy and Lynda Obst Productions.
- Though Paramount and Warner Bros. are traditionally rival studios, Warner Bros., who released Nolan’s Batman films and works with Nolan’s Syncopy, sought a stake in Nolan’s production of Interstellar for Paramount. Warner Bros. agreed to give Paramount its rights to co-finance the next film in the Friday the 13th horror franchise and to have a stake in a future film based on the TV series South Park.

Now here is a trailer I have been waiting to see, it’s the first trailer for Dallas Buyers Club based on a true story and starring Matthew McConaughey. He plays Texas electrician Ron Woodroof who, after being diagnosed with AIDS in 1986, began to smuggle alternative and illegal treatments into the US and into the hands of other patients.
This could be the awarding role McConaughey has been waiting for, the man lost an crazy amount of weight and we all know how much the academy likes that. The movie also has Jared Leto co-starring as a transsexual, it’s going to make some noise.
The film also stars Jennifer Garner, Steve Zahn, Dallas Roberts, Griffin Dunne, Denis O’Hare, and Bradford Cox. Dallas Buyers Club will open on November 1st and will expand later.
