In The Post, director Steven Spielberg delivers a remarkable and timely film about freedom of the press, a story set in 1971 that has striking echoes for the present. President Nixon, who disdains the press, seeks to prevent publication of embarrassing secret government documents that expose decades of deceit of the American people on the Vietnam War.

Spielberg structures The Post like a thriller, racing a ticking-clock and filled with intrigue. The director has put together a stellar cast for this top-notch thriller, led by Tom Hanks as Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and Meryl Streep as the paper’s publisher Katharine Graham, the first women publisher of a major daily newspaper.

Where is “Arrested Development” Now that Jeffrey Tambor has Been Accused of Sexual Assault?

The filming for Season 5 of Arrested Development has finished up. Unfortunately, the future of the series is seeming rather uncertain at the moment because of what has been happening in regard to Jeffrey Tambor, which has not been helped by what has been happening in regard to David Cross as well. Jeffrey Tambor does not play the closest thing to a main character that Arrested Development has, but he does play a couple of important characters. The first is George Bluth Sr., the corrupt real estate developer who serves as the patriarch of the Bluth family that is the

The 10 Must-See Movies At Sundance 2018

Ben Robins on the ten must-see movies at Sundance 2018…

The ridiculously celebrated indie festival to end all indie festivals will return for another banner year in January, and it’s no doubt set to be another big one. Having kicked off the careers of everyone from the Coen Brothers to Tarantino to most recently, Whiplash and La La Land’s Damien Chazelle, it’s a fairly reliable way to get a heads-up on the brightest and boldest new filmmakers in the biz, so it only makes sense to take a closer look at what’s coming up.

We don’t have much to go on – synopses and the occasional still picture – so lets let the casts and crews speak for themselves.

‘The Post’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying

‘The Post’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying
Early reviews are in for “The Post,” and Steven Spielberg’s timely historical drama has opened to generally favorable reviews.

Despite being set in 1971 and centering on the Washington Post’s decision to publish the classified Pentagon papers, critics unanimously pointed out that the movie couldn’t resonate more with the present day.

In his review for Variety, Owen Gleiberman addressed the plot mirroring the current news cycle, writing, “‘The Post’ offers not so much a message as a warning: that freedom of the press is a fight that never stops, and that the force that keeps it going is the absolute die-hard belief in that freedom. When the press begins to accept restrictions, however grudgingly, it’s all but inviting itself to be muzzled.”

Many praised the film’s emphasis on free press being essential to democracy, along with the performances from stars Meryl Streep as the Post’s publisher Kay Graham and Tom Hanks as executive

“The Post” is another rousing outing from Steven Spielberg

The embargo has finally lifted, ladies and gentlemen! We can at long last discuss The Post, the new Steven Spielberg film, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep. Yes, this super fast tracked project is not only complete, but has been screening pretty consistently for critics, guild members, and the Academy itself. The National Board of Review fell in love with it, and plenty of other voters are about to. We’re a month or so away from release still, but the buzz is building in a big way. Once again, Spielberg has delivered the goods. No one in the industry makes it look as easy as he does. He truly is a master at work. To begin, this is what IMDb regales us with, in terms of plot: “A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join

Prior to a New York Times exposé detailing Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara’s incompetence and mishandling of the Vietnam War, he tells owner of the Washington Post and trusting friend Katharine Graham (the classy and talented Meryl Streep gunning for her 21st Oscar nomination) that she is going to read some unflattering things about him tomorrow in the papers. Now, it’s obviously not a shocking reveal of numerous sexual assault allegations,

The Hazy Romanticism of ‘I’m Not There’

Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.

Infinity War Has a Crazy Arrested Development Easter Egg

Infinity War Has a Crazy Arrested Development Easter Egg
The love for the cult TV series Arrested Development runs deep, and Avengers: Infinity War directors the Russo Brothers have a pretty special relationship with the show. The brothers directed the very first episode of Arrested Development with Anthony Russo directing four more episodes and Joe Russo directing an additional nine episodes. As it turns out, the duo has been peppering the McU with some Arrested Development spices, starting with Captain America: Civil War and now there's a new reference to the show in the upcoming, highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War.

Late last week, images and unfinished footage from Infinity War were leaked on to the web as a threat to Marvel to release the long-awaited trailer. Many assumed that the footage was all from the then upcoming trailer, but that is not the case as only a few of the shots ended up in the finished clip. Many were

‘The Post’: Steven Spielberg’s ‘Favorite Cast’ Has Received At Least 58 Emmy Nominations
Sometimes, even Steven Spielberg has trouble assembling his dream cast. But that wasn’t the case with his latest film, the historical drama “The Post.” At a Q&A on Monday night hosted by the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, Spielberg told the audience that he’d been able to get every single one of his first choices. No small feat, considering that the turnaround time on the movie clocked in at just nine months, dating from Spielberg’s first acceptance of the script to its first November screenings.

“So often when I make a movie, I have my first choices, and I don’t always get my first choices sometimes due to availability or sometimes actors don’t like the script enough to say yes to me or to anybody,” he said. “But everybody I wanted in the movie, they were available and they all said yes.
