Miles Teller Whiplash
The first awards of the Oscar season has kicked things off today with the 24th annual Gotham Independent Film Awards announcing its nominees today. With the focus on US-based independent films (even more so than the aptly named Independent Spirit Awards), the nominees are unsurprisingly filled with some of our favorite up and comers and breakout stars of the year. Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” led the way with four nominations, including for lead actor Ellar Coltrane in the Breakthrough Actor category. Also nominated in the category are Riz Ahmed in “Nightcrawler,”Read More

Mia Wasikowska‘s Robyn Davidson may have left everything behind for the remote deserts of West Australia, but as seen in the new poster for John Curran‘s “Tracks,” it looks like she found some romance along the way. “Tracks” chronicles the true story of a then 27-year-old Davidson (played by Wasikowska), who in 1977 embarked on a 2,000-mile trek across the West Australia desert, with only four camels and her dog in her company. Davidson’s journey, which was shared a year later in a memoir she wrote for the National Geographic,Read More

Barren and beautiful imagery abound in the first trailer released for John Curran’s Australian outback drama “Tracks,” starring Mia Wasikowska as a real life young woman who decided to make a solo 2,000 mile trek through the desert, because “why not?” Wasikowska plays Robyn Davidson, who in 1977 walked across the Australian desert by herself, with only four camels and her dog for company. Adam Driver plays Rick Sloman, the National Geographic photographer who met up with her at various points in her journey to photograph her progress. Our ownRead More

A sequel to 2010’s billion-dollar grossing “Alice in Wonderland” seemed like a no brainer, but it’s taken until now to make it official. “Alice in Wonderland 2” is happening, will be released in 2016, and Mia Wasikowska will return as Alice, Disney announced today. Johnny Depp’s Mad Hatter is also returning, and probably some other cast members as well, but one person who is not is director Tim Burton. Instead, “The Muppets” and upcoming sequel “Muppets Most Wanted” director James Bobin will take over directing duties. Hopefully this means aRead More

The upcoming film with the coolest group of people working on it just got a little bit cooler.

Adaptations of Robyn Davidson’s cult classic autobiography “Tracks” have been circling Hollywood for decades, and now 35 years after Davidson undertook the near-impossible task of trekking 1,700 miles from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean with just four camels and a dog for company, John Curran’s “Tracks” has made it on to the big screen. It’s a gorgeous love letter to the beauty of the Outback but an empty story with no depth afforded to this remarkable woman. Davidson’s reason for the trek, which took nine months and covered theRead More
