Bill Skarsgard is going to be your biggest nightmare come September, when he appears as Pennywise the Clown in the highly anticipated Stephen King adaptation “It.” But a producer on the film said Tilda Swinton was in the running to play the iconic monster. “I swear to God,” producer Barbara Muschietti told Playlist. “We had a slot to shoot the movie and she wasn’t available, so she didn’t even audition. But of course, we all thought about her.” Skarsgard came in and was eventually cast in the role, and he has since said that he’s scared the child actors on set. »

Can 'Dunkirk' Hold Off 'Emoji Movie' and 'Atomic Blonde' For Second Weekend at #1?

21 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Not since Wonder Woman seven weeks ago has a film repeat atop the weekend box office. This weekend, Dunkirk is looking to do just that. Christopher Nolan's war drama faces incoming challenges in the form of Sony's animated feature The Emoji Movie and Focus's actioner Atomic Blonde starring Charlize Theron. Both Sony and Focus are anticipating openings around $20 million for their new releases, which wouldn't likely be enough to top Dunkirk's sophomore session, though both could over perform against those expectations making this a weekend to watch closely. Both the new releases and holdovers alike could provide some fireworks, including Universal's Girls Trip, which returns to the fray following its $31 million opening weekend and "A+" CinemaScore. After debuting with $50.5 million last weekend, Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk delivered a #1 opening and is hoping to do the same this weekend. In 2014, following a $47.5 million debut, Nolan's own Interstellar dropped »

Amazon Moves Into Self-Distribution With Woody Allen's 'Wonder Wheel'

22 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Amazon Studios is moving full steam ahead into film distribution.

The streaming giant behind such films as Manchester by the Sea and The Big Sick will self-distribute Woody Allen's upcoming film, Wonder Wheel, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

It's a significant step for Amazon, which has previously partnered with traditional distributors like Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate to put its films into theaters. Amazon's Bob Berney has always played a key role in the marketing of its films, but until now, the company has never had the infrastructure in place to book theaters and physically distribute movies. The company has been quietly building »

If moviegoers ever wanted to hear Sir Patrick Stewart voice the poop emoji, they are about to get their chance.

This weekend, Sony Pictures Animation unfurls The Emoji Movie, based on the popular ideograms that have become their own, popular language. But it remains to be seen whether The Emoji Movie can pass up Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, which opened to $50.3 million last weekend, and win the weekend.

‘A Ghost Story’ Exclusive Clip: Will Oldham Builds A Legacy

26 minutes ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Low budget and small scale, the questions and observations at the heart of David Lowery‘s “A Ghost Story” are much bigger than you might expect. Starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, this story of love, loss, and grief, also ponders human existence and where we ultimately land in the grand cosmic plan.

That latter theme is best expressed in a show-stopping, mid-film monologue by musician/actor Will Oldham (who you might also know as Bonnie “Prince” Billy).

‘Room 104’ Review: Duplass Brothers Go Supernatural in HBO’s Frustrating Anthology Series

34 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The beauty of the anthology series as an idea is that it is entirely liberating in terms of narrative. Essentially, you're being asked to make a series of short films, the kinds one would find in The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt, Black Mirror, and Easy. You can switch styles, tones, aesthetics, themes, genres, directors, actors, writers, and music without having to worry about sustaining some larger arc. No offense to larger arcs - Twin Peaks: The Return is the best series of the year - but this decade is littered with mediocre series that overburdened themselves … »

Trailer Trend: Music Drives the Action in ‘Justice League’ & ‘Suburbicon’, but ‘Baby Driver’ Takes the Cake

41 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Crafting a good trailer is tough, but it’s also important. You need to sell your movie to audiences, but you want to do so in a way that gives an accurate gauge of what they’ll see in the movie. If you sell, say, an action-thriller about a getaway driver and audiences instead get an artful, somber film like Drive, some folks aren’t gonna be happy. But as moviegoing habits change, and as we move closer and closer towards a 12-month-a-year blockbuster season, studios are working harder than ever to convince people they need … »

‘There Will Be Blood’: What You Learn About Paul Thomas Anderson By Counting All 678 Shots — Watch

44 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you’re one of those people who don’t believe the editor holds just as much power over a film as the director, then you really need to watch more Paul Thomas Anderson movies, especially “There Will Be Blood.” The latest video essay from Nerdwriter1 takes a fascinating look at Anderson’s 2007 masterpiece by studying what you learn about the movie just by counting all of the shots.

Read MoreAttention, Filmmakers: Here’s How You Can Direct Shots Like Paul Thomas Anderson — Watch

There are a total of 678 shots in “There Will Be Blood,” which runs 158 minutes. This means that Anderson and editor Dylan Tichenor’s average shot length is approximately 13.3 seconds, well over the 3-4 second average among Hollywood movies today. Utilizing longer shots in no way makes a film better or worse, but Anderson uses it to his advantage. He not only uses longer shots, but he »

Why ‘Atomic Blonde’ Earns Its Steamy Charlize Theron Lesbian Sex Scene

49 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Savvy lesbian cinephiles have learned to be on guard whenever lesbian sex pops up onscreen — especially when it’s coming from a straight male director. While gay men are often portrayed as desexualized comedic relief in Hollywood, lesbians are used for hyper-sexual titillation. Viewers eager for a feminist icon in Charlize Theron’s ball-busting “Atomic Blonde” character Lorraine Broughton should keep their hopes in check, but she does exhibit a refreshingly no-fucks-given fluid sexuality.

A British spy tasked with tracking down a double agent in Berlin just before the fall of the Wall, Lorraine takes out an endless stream of bad guys with killer moves and a poker face so neutral she barely registers a personality. “John Wick” co-director David Leitch makes his official directorial debut with flair, even if the plot is a little predictable. »

Christopher Nolan Doesn’t Allow Chairs Or Water Bottles On Set

1 hour ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Christopher Nolan is master filmmaker, but he’s also someone with very particular sensibilities. For an industry that demands that you be reachable at all time, Nolan eschews the norms, and doesn’t even have an email address. If you’re going to work on one of his movies, get ready to get off the grid, because he doesn’t allow phones on set. The director demands your total attention and commitment to his work, and that also means there are some other things he wants out of the way so you’re not distracted.
