Spielberg’s Lincoln now has a trailer and its got everything a movie needs to win the Oscar (even though it needs more Uggie). Impassioned yelling! Politics! Blue lighting! Bushy sideburns! Not only that, but Daniel Day-Lewis disappears into the role. Which shouldn’t come as a surprise. He’s the Andy Serkis of playing people.

After a long wait, we’re finally treated to a taste of Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. Remember this moment. It is the culmination of years of planning, casting setbacks, and however long it takes Daniel Day-Lewis to grow a beard. There’s not much to see in these brief clips, but we are given some soundbites. Is that really the voice Day-Lewis is using for Lincoln? That’s not Lincoln-y at all. I think I prefer the original Bane voice to this.

We’ll learn a lot more about the film when the full trailer debuts on Thursday. Perhaps the camera will continue to dolly around to reveal Abe in full penny pose.

Yeah. Probably tons.

The post Screw It, Here Are Our 2013 Oscar Predictions appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
We’re over this year’s Oscars, and have been for quite some time. I felt that 2011’s field was uncharacteristically weak, and having harped on it for the past few weeks, I’m ready to move on to 2012’s candidates.

Granted, I haven’t “seen” any of these films. And there are undoubtedly dozens of solid films that are still under my radar. And those films will probably feature strong turns by both actors and directors. But whatever, that won’t keep me from examining some of the strongest, most notable candidates for an award, going on experience and some educated guesses.

So this may not be the most subversive or even “accurate” Oscar prediction, and you’re not going to find any under-the-radar films and actors here. But you will find more than a few safe bets from known projects. Judging by the slate for 2012, we could see a lot more “Hollywood” films fill the ballots in the 2013 ceremonies, which always proves to be more satisfying, provided the popular films are the good ones.

Best Picture

The Dark Knight Rises
Lincoln
Life of Pi
Django Unchained
The Great Gatsby

The one thing these films have in common is each one is helmed by a great director, with Nolan, Spielberg, Lee, Tarantino, and Luhrmann all showing up in widely anticipated and rather big-budget movies. My early call is that Lincoln, with the reputations of Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis behind it, will take the cake, with Life of Pi given a courtesy nod in this category. Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises could make a lot of noise if people lavish praise on the film for the scope of the production, but in the end, the heavier biopic will prevail.

Best Director

Wes AndersonMoonrise Kingdom
Christopher Nolan – The Dark Knight Rises
Marc WebbThe Amazing Spider-Man
Steven Spielberg – Lincoln
Ang LeeLife of Pi

It seems a little odd to have two comic book films represented here, but going off of the early sizzle reel I’ve seen from Spider-Man, Marc Webb is masterful at bouncing from bombastic action sequences to touching moments between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. Wes Anderson is back in our lives and hearts after the lukewarm reception of The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and I think he could get a lot of legacy goodwill in this category. Spielberg’s Lincoln is no-brainer given the man and the subject matter, and I think he’ll be the one to walk away with the bald gold guy.

Best Actor

Bill MurrayHyde Park on Hudson
Daniel Day-Lewis – Lincoln
Leonardo DiCaprioGreat Gatsby
Sean PennGangster Squad
Robert De Niro – Being Flynn

Everyone on this list but Murray and DiCaprio already have won their Oscars, and in the interest of appearing progressive (and not simply handing the award over to Daniel Day-Lewis, even though he’ll probably deserve it), they’ll bestow it upon Bill Murray, who’s distinguished career will come to a head with the most Oscar bait-y role he’s played so far. I think voters will be looking for an excuse to give it to him, but in this field, it’s a very tough call.

I’m hoping De Niro’s turn as a distant, homeless father in Being Flynn gets him out of the doghouse that he’s built for himself over the past decade. Sean Penn because, hey, Sean Penn, Leo because he’s just so damn handsome.

Best Actress

Blake LivelySavages
Jennifer LawrenceThe Silver Linings Playbook
Sally Field – Lincoln
Toni Collette – Jesus Henry Christ
Maggie GyllenhaalHysteria

Again, it’s hard to get too adventurous with these pics before the films have even been finished, so based on resume alone, I think we have a pretty strong group here. I think Field will be able to chew some serious scenery as Mary Todd Lincoln, and if she doesn’t get too terribly outclassed by her hubby, Mr. Day-Lewis, I think she’s the smart money here.

I think Hollywood wants to REALLY love Jennifer Lawrence, but seeing as how The Hunger Games is a little too mainstream for the snobs, she’ll get it in the David O. Russell film instead.

I’m also looking forward to Blake Lively in Oliver Stone’s The Savages, if only because she mastered a seedy role in The Town, and I’m eager to see her do it again as a beachy stoner. Toni Colette and Maggie Gyllenhaal because it wouldn’t be the Academy Awards without them, so why not both?

As you can tell, this has been a very scientific process, so let’s hear your thoughts in the comments if you’re feeling like yelling at us.

Our 9 Most Anticipated Films Of 2012 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/our-9-most-anticipated-films-of-2012/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/our-9-most-anticipated-films-of-2012/#comments Wed, 28 Dec 2011 16:23:16 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=239605 Hi, I'm Abe.

The post Our 9 Most Anticipated Films Of 2012 appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
2012 already has a slate of films that have fans from many different genres salivating. For no other reason than everyone else seems to be looking back on the past year’s films every December, let’s look forward and get even more excited about the best that 2012 has to offer us.

Your list may vary.

Haywire- January 20

Steven Soderbergh has never really blown my hair back the way other directors do, but he’s consistently “solid.” And while it’s a testament to the genre that I am looking for an action film that clears that admittedly low bar, I am. Gina Carano brings the muscle while Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender, Channing Tatum, and Michael Douglas bring the acting in this story about a CIA agent gone rogue.

The Hunger Games – March 23

After a lengthy stretch of “tribute” casting announcements, The Hunger Games was able to capture my attention. I just recently read the book, and though it didn’t fall in my sweet spot because I’m not a 13 year-old girl, I am eager to see what kind of world the producers create for the dystopian future. The book is sparse with many details, so there’s a ton of room for the designers and director to flex their creative muscle. Plus, Jennifer Lawrence has put a spell on me since Winter’s Bone.

The Dictator – May 11

For me, this one starts and ends with the stars. Perhaps the script is great, perhaps it isn’t, but Sacha Baron Cohen and Anna Faris can find a way to transcend bad writing and play comedy like almost no one else can. The logline is “The heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” Interesting. Until you see an image of Sacha Baron Cohen’s dictator. Then it very quickly becomes mesmerizing.

We have our first picture of Daniel Day-Lewis as President Abe Lincoln. And after comparing it to this penny I found on the men‘s room floor, I have to say he really looks the part. That bodes well for Steven Spielberg, who is currently directing Lincoln in Virginia. But I have to wonder if this early buzz is really going to matter, considering we all know the ending: He gets his head blown off! I apologize if I’ve spoiled the film for any recent immigrants.

At any rate, since we all know the ending, maybe Spielberg should consider spicing it up a bit? Here are 9 suggestions. You’re welcome.

Last year’s Animal Kingdom Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver will be joining Oldboy director Park Chan-wook‘s Stoker. The story follows an eccentric girl who finds that her shady uncle may be responsible for many of the disappearances of her neighbors. The film will be Park’s English-language debut and is based on an original script written by Wentworth Miller (!) under the pen name Ted Foulke. (Deadline)

Alia Shawkat, who will always, always be Maeby Funke for the rest of her career, has signed up for two new projects, both of which will continue her streak of indie films. First is her part in the Jonathan Dayton/Valerie Faris film He Loves Me, opposite Paul Dano. She will be playing a girl named Mabel who carries a flame for Dano’s character. Sounds like a whole lotta indie to me! She will also be scoring a role in Raama Mosely’s The Brass Teapot, which sounds like a film I would never, ever see in a million years. Fortunately, the premise is more interesting than the title. It’s about two friends that find a brass teapot that produces cash every time someone feels pain. I would take that shit to the Sudan and watch the money pile up.

Finally, Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln continues to hire most every actor with a SAG card, today picking up Lee Pace, who you might know from Twilight, or possibly not at all. He will play opportunistic New York mayor Fernando Wood. Because it’s totally believable that someone that was in Twilight could run a city.

If you’re pursuing an acting career, think long and hard about at least an internship with The Shield’s Strike Team, as it seems to offer a wonderful springboard into high-profile acting gigs for its graduates.

Deadline reports that Michael Chiklis will be taking his brand of “stocky and bald” to Taylor Hackford‘s Parker, playing the villain opposite Jason Statham‘s hero. Two bald men enter, but only one will leave…

Walton Goggins, who has made a fair amount of noise as the ambivalent Boyd Crowder on Justified, will be taking his homespun southern mannerisms and batshit crazy hair to Spielberg’s Lincoln, where he will play Ohio (not southern, I know) Congressman Wells A. Hutchins, a rep who champions the abolishment of slavery. Nice work there, Boyd. This role comes on the heels of this summers Cowboys and Aliens and the Straw Dogs remake. This guy just loves all things southern! And who can blame him? It’s a wonderful cardinal direction!

Like sands through the hourglass, so is the casting news of June 27, 2011:

Ben Affleck objectively decided that he was the best man to star in his next directing project, Argo. He will play Tony Mendez, the CIA operative tasked with extracting six American hostages from Iran in 1979. He thought it was the smart move because he was going to be near those locations anyway, directing everyone for that movie. (Variety)

Nicole Kidman will be joining Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy as a woman who develops a penpal relationship with a man on death row. She will be replacing Sofia Vergara, but considering the timing of Tobey Maguire‘s departure from the project last week, let’s all just pretend that she’ll be filling in for him. It’s funnier that way and not altogether improbable. (THR)

Rosario Dawson will be starring in an indie drama with a decidedly non-indie cast. Fire with Fire, the story of a man who enters the witness protection program, only to lash out against the men threatening him will also star Bruce Willis, Quentin “Rampage” Jackson, Josh Duhamel, 50 Cent, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Vinnie Jones. The indie spirit is alive and well, folks. (Variety)

Finally, David Strathairn will join Steven Spielberg‘s star-studded Lincoln, hitting theaters just in time to qualify for the 2013 Oscars. He will play Secretary of State William Seward to Daniel Day-Lewis‘ Honest Abe. Sally Field will also star as Lincoln’s wife, Mary Todd. (Deadline)

When Steven Spielberg says “jump,” all of Hollywood says, “okay.”

Wait. I screwed it up. Nevermind. The big takeaway from that idiom was that Spielberg, despite a lower profile in recent years, can still command quite a turnout. Take, for instance, his current project, Lincoln, about the 16th president of the United States.

After scoring Sally Field and Daniel Day-Lewis, what does Spielberg do for an encore?

He gets Joseph Gordon-Levitt (the thinking man’s Shia LaBeouf). And Tommy Lee Jones. And Hal “The Hammer” Holbrook. And then, once he’s found his groove, he calls up James Spader. And then he hands the Spader call off to his assistant so he can speak with John Hawkes. Cause everyone knows it’s not a period piece in the south until The Hawk is on board.

(Due to schedule constraints, I’ll just list the other actors cast in Lincoln.)

They are: Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Joseph Cross, David Constabile, Byron Jennings, Dakin Matthews, Boris McGiver, Gloria Reuben, Jeremy Strong and David Warshofsky.

All these actors are listed as “in negotiations,” so there might be a few additions or subtractions, but it’s Spielberg. You don’t say no to the guy that directed Amistad. You just don’t. (Variety)

Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln does not hunt vampires, but he will be married to Sally Field. Me? Nothing against two time Oscar winner Field, but I’d take the vampire hunting. I just really hate vampires.

Field will star opposite Daniel Day-Lewis as The Great Emancipator, and I just realized that particular nickname for President Abraham Lincoln sounds dirty. *Chuckles Heartily* As Mary Todd Lincoln, Field is expected to have a major role. Spielberg praised Field for being able to portray the “fragility and complexity that was Mary Todd Lincoln.” (Read: Craziness.) However, her age is a little awkward: Field is 67, older than Mary Todd was when she finally kicked the bucket. Eh, she still looks good. She’ll pull it off – worst case scenario, Spielberg calls someone at Industrial Light and Magic. Badda bing, badda boom.

Screenwriter Tony Kushner adapted the book Team of Rivals by Pulitzer Prize-winner Doris Kearns Goodwin, which chronicles the president’s later, Civil War-ier years. Lincoln is pushing to emancipate theaters in late 2012. (LA Times)

He's already mastered the top hat.

Brilliant and eccentric method actor Daniel Day-Lewis will stop shaving today, as Steven Spielberg has chosen him to play our great nation’s 16th President in Lincoln. The announcement was made today by Spielberg and Stacey Snider, Co-Chairman and CEO of DreamWorks Studios.

“Daniel Day-Lewis would have always been counted as one of the greatest of actors, were he from the silent era, the golden age of film or even some time in cinema’s distant future I am grateful and inspired that our paths will finally cross with Lincoln,” said Steven Spielberg. “Throughout his career, he has been exceptionally selective in his choice of material,” added Stacey Snider, “which makes us feel even more fortunate that he has chosen to join with us for Lincoln.”

Day-Lewis teaming up with Spielberg for the first time can only mean good things. Several years ago, Liam Neeson was attached to play Lincoln, because the guy looks exactly like him, but the project never got off the ground and Neeson went on to star in everything else that has filmed since then. Production of the Tony Kushner adapted script from the novel Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns is expected to begin fall 2011 for a release at the end of 2012. That gives Day-Lewis almost an entire year to master that unique Honest Abe gigantism strut. (TheWrap)
