James Gray’s newest film The Lost City of Z has quietly become a hit with critics and Gray devotees ever since debuting at last year’s New York Film Festival. It’s about to hit theaters here, and its newest trailer, while the briefest look we’ve gotten of it so far, shows off the immense scope of what looks like a modern movie that dreams of being an Old Hollywood epic.
James Gray got played hard on his last release, the classically-minded drama The Immigrant. The film earned rapturous reviews out of its premiere at Cannes and landed a distribution deal with the power players at the Weinstein Company — who then let it languish in obscurity before quietly releasing it over a year later. The film was a triumph among critics but a huge missed opportunity from an industry perspective. Hopefully, Gray will have a better go with the less domineering Amazon Studios, who will release his new picture The Lost City of Z in April.
Hollywood has its Golden Globes and its Oscars, but us humbler folks have the Razzies, an awards show created to honor the very worst in cinema. From painful movies to pathetic acting, the Razzies have spent more than three decades punishing the worst of the worst with a $5 award that's glamorously spray-painted gold.
And this year, there was one clear frontrunner in the list of nominees: 'The Twi
After all these months, it's finally happened -- 'The Twilight Saga' has been nominated for the 2013 Razzies... in literally every category! What's the rule, again? If your only awards come from the MTV Movie Awards and People's Choice, expect to get a Razzie?
Douchebag extraordinaire Joe Francis, the founder of 'Girls Gone Wild,' took an innocuous mention of his scantily-clad lady franchise uttered by 'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson and ran with it -- offering the sparkly vampire $100,000 to appear in one of his videos.
Presumably with his shirt on.
We admit we tool on Robert Pattinson pretty hard around here sometimes, but it's less about him and more about his taste in women and the annoying movie franchise that is 'Twilight.'
But in his Nov. 8 appearance on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,' he was kind of adorable -- even to us -- when he gamely climbed into a big wooden tub and had a water fight with Fallon.
