Casey Affleck Is Creepier Than Ever With a Sheet Over His Head in the Trailer for A Ghost Story

Stay under there, Affleck.

We're here for Rooney Mara, who co-stars in A Ghost Story, which looks weird and poignant. Sundance loved it up with rapturous pull-quotes from critics. Best of all, Casey Affleck seems to spend a good portion of the movie with his face hidden under a child's idea of a ghost costume.

Rooney Mara to Star in Vox Lux, a Pop Star’s Journey With a Sia Soundtrack

I loved Paul Thomas Anderson's 1999 film Magnolia, in large part because of the soundtrack, which was made up entirely of songs by singer-songwriter Aimee Mann. The single-artist soundtrack did so much to give the film its unique voice, and I still can't hear the song "Wise Up" without thinking about this montage. Now, Rooney Mara is set to star in a film about a pop star, with a soundtrack by Sia. This is gonna be good.

Rooney Mara Regrets Playing Tiger Lily in Pan, Particularly in Light of #OscarsSoWhite

Rooney Mara, who has received an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in Carol, has hesitated to weigh in on the ongoing #OscarsSoWhite controversy in part because of her regrets about taking the role of Tiger Lily in Pan. Warner Brothers' 2015 cinematic adaptation of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan didn't do well at the box office, but even before its release, the film came under fire for casting Rooney Mara as a Native American character.

Jupiter Ascending, Fifty Shades of Grey, and Fantastic Four Earn Razzie Nominations

One of those things is infinitely superior to the others.

I will defend Jupiter Ascending till my dying breath, but yeah, the rest of the nominees for the 2016 Razzie Awards certainly seem deserving of some razzing.

Movie Review: Carol Is a Beautiful, Composed Slow-Burn

4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

The script by Phyllis Nagy is beautiful, with almost lyrical dialogue, seemingly written for each actress’s vocal strengths. As usual in Haynes, the production detail is more specific than most movies, making everything seem both specific and beautiful at once. The simple use of color for Blanchett and Mara’s clothing says plenty about the characters, especially in the silences the movie wanders into for extended periods.

Watch the First Trailer For Pan, aka the Most Racist Of Recent Peter Pan Projects

Clap if you are so sick of this shit.

Joe Wright's Pan follows the grand tradition of live-action films revealing a "new side" of familiar characters from the J.M. Barrie tale. In established Neverland custom, it also features horribly racist whitewashing: Rooney Mara plays Tiger Lily. It’s 2014, Joe Wright. At this point the only “untold” Peter Pan story is the non-racist one.

Your move, WB.

"We might only exist because people were drawn to The Sound of Music Live! like a train wreck, and we'll probably be really bad, but at least we know not to cast a white woman as Tiger Lily, Warner Bros.!"
