Elisabeth Moss in First Trailer for HBO's New Short Film 'Tokyo Project'

"You ever spend the night with a stranger?" HBO has unveiled a trailer for a short film they're debuting this October. Tokyo Project is a 30-minute short from director Richard Shepard (Dom Hemingway, The Hunting Party, The Matador), produced by Lena Dunham. Ebon Moss-Bachrach stars as Sebastian, a man on a business trip to Tokyo. He keeps running into a mysterious woman named Claire, as played by Elisabeth Moss. They eventually hook up, but also end up dealing with their own sordid pasts. Co-starring Shu Kakizawa. This obviously reminds me of Lost in Translation, but hopefully it's a bit different. I am always up for anything with Elisabeth Moss, because she is so talented, and this looks like it could be good. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Richard Shepard's short film Tokyo Project, from YouTube: On a business trip to Tokyo, Japan, Sebastian explores the city with

‘Girls’: Richard Shepard On That Shocking Moment From ‘American Bitch’ That Wasn’t In The Script [Emmy Interview]

  • The Playlist
Lena Dunham’s “Girls” didn’t go quietly into the night in its six and final season. Dunham and producing partner Jenni Konner continued to push the creative boundaries of the half-hour “comedy” format. One of their most impressive endeavors was “American Bitch” which was written by Dunham and directed by series veteran Richard Shepard (“The Matador,” “Dom Hemingway”).

The season’s third episode finds Hannah (Dunham) agreeing to meet a noted author Chuck Palmer (a fantastic Matthew Rhys) after she’s published a story with allegations that he coerced college students into having sex with him.

Coffee, Sake and Ambien: Writer/Director Richard Shepard on His Tribeca ’17 Short Film, Tokyo Project

An unexpected pleasure at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, Tokyo Project is a romantic drama with a psychological twist starring Elisabeth Moss and Ebon Moss-Bacharach and directed by Richard Shepard, whose career traverses dark comedies like The Matador and Dom Hemingway as well as some of the most memorable episodes of TV’s Girls. But what’s unexpected about this story of two American wanderers who hook up in Tokyo while both seemingly escaping their normal lives is, simply, its existence. The half-hour work is beautifully acted and shot (by Giles Nuttgens), coursing with a kind of romantic cinephilia, and, unlike other […]

Emilia Clarke Joins Han Solo 'Star Wars' Movie

  • Movies.com
Six years ago, Emilia Clarke burst into popular consciousness during the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones. Her character, Daenerys Targaryen, began as a naive and submissive young woman who soon emerged as a far stronger personality than might have been anticipated. Throughout the course of the series, Daenerys has overcome one setback after another, rising to become a powerful ruling force. In concert with her character, Clarke has risen from relative obscurity to immense popularity over the past few years. She has been quite selective about the movies in which she's appeared since the series hit it big, starting with supporting roles in Spike Island and Dom Hemingway before she landed a starring role as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys (above left).

Few actresses have had the near instant ascension that Emilia Clarke has already achieved in her career.

'The Hateful Eight' Interview with Demian Bichir | Exclusive
With a filmography that spans nearly 40 years, Demi&#225n Bichir has had more than his fair share of ups and downs throughout his career. In the mid-80s, he moved to New York and then Los Angeles to pursue his craft, but he was eventually drawn back to Mexico, where he became one of his home country's biggest box office stars. He won an Ariel Award, the Mexican equivalent of an Oscar, for his role in 'Til Death in 1994, and his 1999 blockbuster Sex, Shame and Tears became the highest-grossing movie in the country's history. While he was a bona fide star in Mexico, he would only gain the attention of American audiences nearly a decade later

His portrayal of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro in 2008's Che (Part 1) and Che (Part 2) helped put Demi&#225n Bichir on one Hollywood map, as well as his portrayal of Tijuana mayor/drug kingpin Esteban Reyes on Showtime's Weeds.

'Alien: Covenant' Adds 'Hateful Eight' Star Demian Bichir

'Alien: Covenant' Adds 'Hateful Eight' Star Demian Bichir
As director Ridley Scott continues the pre-production process in Australia for his highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant, the growing cast has yet another new addition. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that The Hateful Eight star Demi&#225n Bichir has signed on, but no details were given regarding his role. We reported earlier this month that production will begin in April, on location in Sydney, Australia.

Demian Bichir joins a cast that includes Prometheus star Michael Fassbender, who returns as the android David, along with franchise newcomers Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride. Ridley Scott teased last month that he's aiming for a hard R rating, which makes sense since all of the previous Alien movies were R except Alien Vs. Predator. While no official plot details have been given yet, we know this will be the first in a new trilogy that will eventually lead up to the original Alien.

The Hateful Eight movie review: all hat, no cattle

Inexcusably self-indulgent. Tarantino gratifies his enormous self-love and his amusement at his own genius at the expense of all else. I’m “biast” (pro): loved Tarantino’s last two films…

I’m “biast” (con): …but really hate some of his films, too

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Damn. So after the marvels of Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino has swung back to the Kill Bill style of filmmaking, which I described in my review of Basterds as a cinematic “circle jerk in which he and his fans get off on one another and how clever they all are to be such rapacious film geeks.” With the inexcusably self-indulgent The Hateful Eight, Tarantino has returned to the gratification of his enormous self-love and his amusement at his own genius at the expense of all else.

There are no characters to like in Eight.

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Lands Richard E. Grant

'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Lands Richard E. Grant
Game of Thrones normally uses its Comic-Con panel every summer to announce the new casting additions for each season, but that tradition was broken this year. The show still hasn't made any official casting announcements to date, but news has started to trickle out from unconventional sources. Today, we have a report from Watchers on the Wall, which reveal that veteran British actor Richard E. Grant has signed on for an unspecified role in Season 6. It isn't known if he has started filming or not.

The news of his casting was spotted on the actor's official resume page on his talent agency's website, but the listing was removed shortly thereafter. There are still a number of roles that have yet to be cast, such as Randyll Tarly, the father of Samwell Tarly, Aeron Greyjoy, Lord Karstark and Smalljon Umber, so it's possible that Richard E. Grant could be playing any one of those roles.
