The year is 1981 and Isaac and Chastain play married couple Abel and Anna. He’s a “principled businessman” but finds himself needing to get his hands a little dirty as his gas company runs up against the criminal underworld. Luckily, Chastain’s AnnaRead More

We are so close to an official announcement on “Star Wars: Episode VII” casting, we can all basically feel it in the air at this point. But before it’s made officially official, the trades are all out in force to toss out a final rumor or two that may or may not be substantiated in the end. The biggest revelation today, via Deadline, The Wrap and THR, is that Oscar Isaac may be among the names called when the announcement is made. Both THR and The Wrap reporters mention IsaacRead More

We haven’t heard much about Alex Garland’s directorial debut “Ex Machina,” though just the cast itself – Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and Alicia Vikander – was enough to make it one of our most anticipated films of the year. Now, the first still image from the film has been released, along with word that Universal has picked up the indie sci-fi drama for distribution. Great news all around! Described as “an intense psychological thriller, played out in a love triangle between two men and a beautiful robot girl. It exploresRead More

Fresh from the success of his sophomore feature effort “All Is Lost,” Oscar-nominated writer/director J.C. Chandor is set to return with the New York City-set thriller “A Most Violent Year.” Filming wrapped in Brooklyn this week, and to commemorate the achievement, A24 Films released a new on set photo (above) of Chandor and star Oscar Isaac via its official Twitter account. Set in 1981, “A Most Violent Year” follows the lives of a Hispanic immigrant (Isaac) and his family as they try to “expand their business and capitalize on theRead More
in-secret
Oscar Isaac and Elizabeth Olsen basically always deliver great performances on screen, and the two combined is really something to behold, even if the 17th Century setting of “In Secret” feels a bit stifled and claustrophobic. Isaac and Olsen command the screen with compelling performances and organic chemistry and are helped by solid direction from Charlie Stratton, who set them against a heavy, dreary backdrop apropos of the dark story he’s retelling. A tale of restrained passion, murder and resentment in Victorian France is no easy to sit through popcornRead More

Jessica Chastain has wrapped up her role in JC Chandor’s currently filming crime drama “A Most Violent Year” and has taken to her official Facebook to share the first image of her on set and in character. She writes: “That’s a wrap for me on A Most Violent Year. Working with talent like JC Chandor and Oscar Isaac are the reason I love my job. I’m a very lucky girl. xxjes” Presumably Oscar Isaac, in the lead role, is still filming on the 1980s New York City set drama. IsaacRead More

New psychological thriller “Two Faces of January” boasts that it’s from the producers of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” the author of “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and the writer of “Drive,” and judging from this first trailer out of the Berlin Film Festival, where it’s currently having its world premiere, influences of all three are clearly felt. Hossein Amini, who did indeed write “Drive,” makes his directorial debut here, with Viggo Mortensen, Oscar Isaac and Kirsten Dunst playing each other (and us, probably) in a dangerous cat and mouse game asRead More

“The Butler” may have been snubbed on Oscar nomination morning, but David Oyelowo’s career is not slowing down any. THR reports the British actor has joined J.C. Chandor’s next film, “A Most Violent Year,” which already boasts a cast led by Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, and also includes Catalina Sandina Moreno, Albert Brooks and Alfred Molina. There’s no word on Oyelowo’s character, but Isaac and Chastain have the lead roles as a husband and wife duo whose ambitions for their oil heating business collide with growing violence and unrestRead More

Up and Comers Presents: The Breakout Stars of 2013

Another year has come and gone and we have once again been introduced to a brand new crop of future movie stars and Oscar winners. The Class of 2013 skewed older and a bit more mainstream, and surprisingly, we were actually able to correctly predict that several of them would have amazing years. Of course, newcomers still popped up to surprise us and Hollywood and the world, and that’s the fun of it. As always, the hardest part of compiling this list is narrowing them down, and we’ve had toRead More
