It’s almost the end of the month, which means it’s time to check out what kind of new stuff is coming to your favorite streaming services in September. Amazon Prime has some good ones this month, including a ton of classics and a new new films that you should definitely check out if you missed them in the theater.
Glenn Close’s revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard has prompted Paramount to start pursuing a film adaptation — that is, a movie based on a musical that is itself based on another movie. And they want her to play the lead.
Loving Vincent, about the complicated life and tragic death of Vincent van Gogh, has been in production for more than six years. Not only did the production team meticulously research his life and incorporate his work, his subjects, and around 800 personal letters for the film, but also they created every frame of the movie by hand. It’s not a stretch to say that every frame of this movie is a work of art — because they are! Each of Loving Vincent’s 65,000 frames is itself an oil painting.
Looks like Nicole Kidman wants to continue her winning streak of working with female directors. After starring in Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled remake and joining the upcoming season of Jane Campion’s Top of the Lake, Kidman is considering taking a role in Karyn Kusama’s crime thriller Destroyer.
Yep, it’s official. Jessica Chastain will oppose the X-Men in Dark Phoenix, which is currently in production in Montreal. The actress shared two Instagrams of herself and James McAvoy, a.k.a. Charles Xavier, from what’s probably The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby’s red carpet and a screencap from that movie itself. She won’t say who she’s playing in Dark Phoenix, but we might know already.
The biggest question going into Star Wars: The Last Jedi is how the movie will deal with Carrie Fisher’s passing. She had finished all of her scenes for the movie before her death last winter, but the series would be remiss if she wasn’t given a proper sendoff. We still don’t know if another actress will play General Leia in Episode IX, or if she’ll be somewhat written out of it, but John Boyega says she’s given her due in The Last Jedi.
Steven Spielberg, prolific and legendary as he is, has had plenty of flops in his time, and he’s not afraid to let everyone know which of his many film children he likes the least. While making the new documentary Spielberg, documentarian Susan Lacy spent more than 30 hours interviewing her subject, and during some of those sessions he told her which of his Indiana Jones films he likes the least. No, it’s not that one.
The next of James Cameron’s Avatar sequels are officially off and rolling, with visual effects production in full swing today at the Oscar-winning Weta Digital in New Zealand. Cameron changed the game for movies that heavily feature visual effects and performance capture, paving the way for films like Luc Besson’s Valerian and the new Planet of the Apes trilogy. Funny enough, Weta is getting an assist this time around from motion capture tech used in War for the Planet of the Apes.
It seemed like 3D was having itself a little moment there for a while, spurred on by the success of James Cameron’s Avatar back in 2009. But it seems like the 3D era is nearing an end, as 3D’s biggest supporter, IMAX, has made the decision to focus more on 2D screenings of Hollywood tentpoles, citing a “clear preference” amongst consumers.
If an esteemed actor gets big enough, you can place a pretty good bet that he’ll be cast as at least one American president in his lifetime. Everyone from Martin Sheen to Jon Voight has played George Washington, Daniel Day-Lewis got extremely in character as Abraham Lincoln, and Robin Williams’ Teddy Roosevelt is one of the joys of the Night at the Museum movies. Since Woody Harrelson is having a real moment these days, it comes as no surprise that he’s been tapped to play one of our most recognizable presidents, Lyndon B. Johnson, in LBJ.
