IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK

 

Academy Award-winning writer/director Barry Jenkins' first film since the Best Picture Oscar-winning Moonlight is If Beale Street Could Talk, his adaptation of James Baldwin's novel - the first English-language feature film based on the work of the author, to whom the movie is dedicated.

 

Set in early-1970s Harlem, If Beale Street Could Talk is a timeless and moving love story of both a couple's unbreakable bond and the African-American family's empowering embrace, as told through the eyes of 19-year-old Tish Rivers (screen newcomer KiKi Layne). A daughter and wife-to-be, Tish vividly recalls the passion, respect and trust that have connected her and her artist fiancé Alonzo Hunt, who goes by the nickname Fonny (Stephan James). Friends since childhood, the devoted couple dream of a future together but their plans are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit.

Through the unique intimacy and power of cinema, If Beale Street Could Talk honors the author's prescient words and imagery, charting the emotional currents navigated in an unforgiving and racially biased world as the filmmaker poetically crosses time frames to show how love and humanity endure.

'TO DUST' w/ Géza Röhrig & Matthew Broderick - TRAILER PREMIERE

TO DUST

A Film by Shawn Snyder

About a Hasidic cantor’s struggles to find religious solace after his wife’s untimely death, while secretly obsessing over how her body will decay.

ToDust.jpg

IN THEATERS FEBRUARY 8TH

“Shmuel and Albert may be the funniest odd couple since Broderick and Nathan Lane’s Leo Bloom and Max Bialystock.”

– Barbara Hoffman, NY POST

“Broderick, as a Jethro Tull-obsessed stoner, is mind-shattering.”

– Joshua Rothkopf, TIME OUT NEW YORK

Shawn Snyder’s TO DUST premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, followed by screenings at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival and the Hamptons International Film Festival. This feature film debut from Snyder is tells the tale of Shmuel, a Hasidic cantor in Upstate New York, who is distraught by the untimely death of his wife, Rivkah. As he struggles to find solace in his religion, which proffers a stringent timeline for grief, Shmuel grows increasingly haunted by visions of Rivkah’s decomposing corpse. Convinced that her soul will suffer until her body returns to dust, Shmuel decides that to stop his feverish spiral he must seek an understanding of the physical processes of her decay - despite the blasphemy inherent in any scientific inquiry. Risking discovery and expulsion, Shmuel tip-toes outside his enclave, where his search leads to Albert, a bumbling biology professor at the local community college. Soon, Albert is unwittingly seduced into an odd world of homespun forensic research and begins to guide Shmuel through outrageous experiments that aim to approximate a timeline for Rivkah’s dissolution - starting with the theft, suffocation and burial of a pig. As amateur scientists practicing imperfect science and incompetent criminals on progressively absurd outings, the two find themselves neck-deep in genres in which neither of them belongs. With their macabre moonlit misadventures growing ever more perilous, the odd couple will stop at nothing to satiate their curiosity and ultimately find Shmuel the comfort he desperately seeks. 92min.

"TOY STORY 4" TEASER TRAILER REACTION FEATURES VOICES OF KEY & PEELE, PLUS NEW CHARACTER POSTERS

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele to Voice New Characters Ducky and Bunny in “Toy Story 4” 

Woody’s journey in “Toy Story 4” includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall. 

Check out the teaser trailer reaction video here:


“Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, who voice Ducky and Bunny, are two of the most brilliant minds I’ve ever seen,” said director Josh Cooley. “Of course, they are effortlessly funny, which would be enough. But they are incredible actors that understand story. Their improvs weren’t just for comedy sake, they were story motivated which elevated Ducky and Bunny and the film to a level I never could have expected.”

ABOUT “TOY STORY 4”:

Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.

(WASHINGTON D.C.) - November 9, 2018 - Juan and Lisa Winans (formerly Lisa Kimmey) announce the release of their Christmas EP, "A Little Soul for Christmas," on Friday, November 16 via Parkside & Papergirl Entertainment. The 5-track EP offers a timeless collection of holiday classics and original songs. “A Little Soul for Christmas” is a must-have for any holiday music collection. The EP's lead singles, "Rest" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" are available for listening now. Juan and Lisa Winans married in 2007. After leading believers in worship for over a decade together, the Grammy nominated couple are returning to their first love as gospel music recording artists.

“We want to combine the platform and expertise we’ve gained from our years as successful recording artists with our understanding of the needs of the church from the context of music and worship. God has anointed us to walk in both for the purpose of advancing His Kingdom in this generation,” says Juan Winans.

Juan Winans began his career with the Billboard #1 Gospel Album, “Winans Phase 2: We Got Next,” which birthed the hit single “It’s Alright (Send Me);” and continued on to write and produce for a myriad of Gospel, Pop and R&B artists including Mary MaryLalah HathawaySmokie Norful and Michael Bolton. In 2016, Juan Winans and his sister Deborah Joy Winans (“Greenleaf”) began a series of tours in the original musical Born For This: The BeBe Winans Story.

Lisa Winans (formerly Lisa Kimmey) is best known as one third of the trailblazing Contemporary Christian Music trio, Out of Eden. The group was active from 1994 to 2006, producing seven albums through Gotee Records and received two Dove Awards. During Lisa’s tenure with Out of Eden, she appeared on UPN’s 90’s sitcom “Moesha,” and hosted original programming for GMC (Gospel Music Channel). In 2006, Out of Eden retired and released a greatest hits compilation. The trio reunited in 2014 for a special Gotee Records compilation album with a cover of House of Hero’s single “Constant.”

"Juan and Lisa are dear friends who will lift and encourage people from all backgrounds through their music. Their devotion to Christ combined with the excellence in their presentation creates a dynamic environment where lives are changed,” says Dr. Rice Brooks, Co-Founder Every Nation Churches.

Celebrating the true reason for the season “A Little Soul for Christmas” will fill your holiday with sounds of peace, love and joy. This essential addition to your holiday music collection is available wherever music is digitally sold on Friday, November 16.

Saban Films’ slate also includes: Stephan Rick’s elevated genre film The Super starring Val Kilmer; Between Worlds starring Nicolas Cage; the anthology Berlin, I Love You with Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley and Jim Sturgess; the Gerard Butler starrer The Vanishing;David L.G. Hughes’ Viking Destiny; Alexandre Moors’ The Yellow Birds starring Tye Sheridan, Alden Ehrenreich, Toni Collette, Jason Patric, Jack Huston and Jennifer Aniston; Eshom and Ian Nelms’ lauded feature Small Town Crime starring John Hawkes and Octavia Spencer; and Ivan Kavanagh’s Never Grow Old starring John Cusack and Emile Hirsch.

Since the company’s launch in 2014, Saban Films has released over 40 films with successes that have run the gamut from critically acclaimed theatrical films such as The Homesman, to one of the biggest Fathom events in 2016 with Rob Zombie’s horror thriller 31.  Saban Films, in partnership with Roadside Attractions, most recently released Craig William Macneill’s racy drama Lizzie, starring Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart. Other recent releases include: Brad Silberling’s war thriller An Ordinary Man starring Academy Award® Winner Ben Kingsley; and Alexandros Avranas’ Dark Crimes starring Jim Carrey and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

HULU ORDERS NEW COMEDY SERIES DOLLFACE FROM ABC SIGNATURE STUDIOS

 

Kat Dennings to Star in and Executive Produce The Hulu Original Series

 

Marks Hulu's Third Project with ABC Signature Studios, and

First Joint TV Project for LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures

 

 

SANTA MONICA, CA (Friday, November 2, 2018) - Today Hulu announced a 10-episode series order for Dollface, a new comedy from ABC Signature Studios. The new Hulu Original Series will star actress Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls), who is also set to executive produce the comedy alongside Creator and Writer Jordan Weiss (Harley Quinn) and Showrunner Ira Ungerleider. Additional executive producers include Margot Robbie, Brett Hedblom and Tom Ackerley for LuckyChap Entertainment; Bryan Unkeless and Scott Morgan for Clubhouse Pictures; Nicole King and Stephanie Laing (Vice Principals). Matt Spicer (Ingrid Goes West) will executive produce and direct the first episode.

 

Dollface is set to begin production in 2019. The comedy follows a young woman who – after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend – must deal with her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women, and rekindle the female friendships she left behind.

 

"Reading Jordan’s script was like opening a window into my own brain,” says Dennings. “I’m so inspired by the stellar team we have around us and the unique world of this show, especially with Matt Spicer at the helm.”

 

Dollface will debut alongside Hulu’s growing original comedy slate, which includes the Emmy nominated I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, as well as upcoming series Ramy, Mindy Kaling's Four Weddings and a Funeral and Shrill.

 

"Jordan is an exciting, new voice that has something specific and provocative to say about her generation," said Hulu's SVP of Content, Craig Erwich. "As we seek out fresh perspectives and new, thought-provoking projects, Dollface is exactly the type of relatable, yet distinct, series we know our audience will love. We can't wait to work with Jordan and Kat, as well as our partners at ABC Signature Studios, LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures, to bring this series to life."

 

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership into television and produce Dollface with such fantastic and collaborative partners as we continue to champion strong and unique female characters onscreen,” says LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures. “We couldn’t be more excited that Kat Dennings will take on this incredible and complex character.”

 

The series marks Hulu’s third project with ABC Signature Studios following the recent pick-up of the highly-anticipated Little Fires Everywhere, as well as the first joint TV production project for LuckyChap Entertainment and Clubhouse Pictures, who together recently produced the award-winning film I, Tonya and who are in active pre-production on the untitled Birds of Prey film at Warner Bros.

 

Dennings is best known for her co-lead role on the CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls, which ended its six-season run last spring. She recently wrapped production on the independent comedy feature Friendsgiving starring opposite Malin Akerman and Jane Seymour. Dennings was last seen on the big screen in Disney/Marvel Studios' famed box-office hits Thor and Thor: The Dark World. Her other film credits include Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist opposite Michael Cera, Charlie Bartlet opposite Robert Downey Jr., and Judd Apatow's The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Additionally, Dennings was recently seen on Aaron Sorkin’s Newsroom and has appeared on some of television's most critically acclaimed dramas including, ERWithout A Trace and Sex and the City.

Set 400 years in the future, the series follows The U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship, and its crew, both human and alien, who face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the problems of everyday life. In Season Two, ED (MacFarlane) and KELLY’s (Adrianne Palicki) relationship will take a new turn, while the ship’s crew will meet never-before-seen aliens, face old adversaries the Krill, make first contact with a new civilization and revisit the planet Moclus.

 

Season Two of this past summer’s No. 1 new series, GORDON RAMSAY’S 24 HOURS TO HELL AND BACK premieres Wednesday, Jan. 2 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The hit restaurant makeover series features Ramsay driving to struggling restaurants across the country in his state-of-the-art mobile kitchen and command center, Hell On Wheels, to bring failing restaurants back from the brink of disaster – all in just 24 hours. In today’s social media-driven world, everyone is an amateur food critic, and restaurants often find themselves one bad review away from shutting their doors. So, it’s Chef Ramsay to the rescue. As the clock ticks down, Ramsay and his team transform these restaurants with spectacular renovations, fresh new menus and hope for the future, all building to the end of the 24 hours, when grand re-openings of these restaurants are held for the public.    

 

Following GORDON RAMSAY’S 24 HOURS TO HELL AND BACK, get ready for the wildest celebrity guessing game ever, when THE MASKED SINGER (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) debuts. Hosted by Nick Cannon, with panelists Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger, Ken Jeong and Robin Thicke, this top-secret celebrity singing competition will have everyone asking, “who’s behind the mask?!” Based on an international format, and already a viral phenomenon with over half a billion fans worldwide, the series features celebrities facing off against one another with one major twist: each singer is shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask. Although the celebrities’ identities are a mystery, between them they have a combined 65 Grammy Award nominations, 16 Emmy Award nominations, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and four Super Bowl titles. The singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity. It’s not a “whodunit,” it’s a “whosungit!”

 

On Thursday, Jan. 3, THE ORVILLE makes its time period premiere with an all-new episode (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the fifth and final season premiere of GOTHAM (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), which wraps up the beloved series in a farewell event that will focus on Bruce Wayne’s (David Mazouz) ultimate transformation into the Caped Crusader, as Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) tries to hold together a city on the edge of chaos‎. FOX also has ordered two additional episodes of the hit series, raising the season order to 12 episodes, and bringing the full series order to 100 episodes. Following the events of last season, the fifth season, titled “GOTHAM: Legend of the Dark Knight,” will pick up with Gotham City split amongst Gordon and the GCPD, and some of the most notorious fan-favorite villains, as the heroes try to gain control and salvage what’s left of the deteriorating city. This season will also introduce new villains, including the iconic Bane (guest star Shane West). GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller and executive producers Danny Cannon and John Stephens, GOTHAM follows the rise of Det. James Gordon through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. The series, from Warner Bros. Television, stars Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Erin Richards, Camren Bicondova, Cory Michael Smith and Chris Chalk.

 

Epic thriller THE PASSAGE debuts Monday, Jan. 14 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), following the winter premiere of THE RESIDENT (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). Based on author Justin Cronin’s best-selling trilogy of the same name, THE PASSAGE is an expansive, character-driven thriller written by Liz Heldens (“Friday Night Lights”). Executive-produced by Heldens, Emmy Award winner and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Ridley Scott (“The Martian,” “Gladiator”) and writer/director Matt Reeves (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “Cloverfield”), THE PASSAGE focuses on Project Noah, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. When a young girl (Saniyya Sidney, “Fences,” “Hidden Figures”) is chosen to be a test subject, a federal agent (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, “Pitch”) is tasked with bringing her in, but ultimately, becomes her surrogate father, determined to protect her at any cost – even as Project Noah’s work threatens to unleash an unimaginable apocalypse.

 

The live musical production of the groundbreaking, Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical RENT comes to FOX on Sunday, Jan. 27 (7:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). A re-imagining of Puccini’s “La Bohème,” and set in New York City’s gritty East Village, RENT tells the unforgettable story of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams during a time of great social and political turmoil. Winner of four Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize, writer/composer Jonathan Larson’s tour de force continues to offer an inspiring message of hope and friendship. Acclaimed film, television and theater producer Marc Platt (“Grease: Live,” “La La Land,” “Wicked”), along with the estate of writer/composer Jonathan Larson, will executive-produce the live musical event. The cast features Kiersey Clemons, Brandon Victor Dixon, Jordan Fisher, Vanessa Hudgens, Brennin Hunt, Mario, Tinashe and Valentina. Additionally, Keala Settle will perform the iconic solo from “Seasons of Love” and join the ensemble in the live musical.

 

New legal drama PROVEN INNOCENT will premiere Friday, Feb. 15 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner and EMPIRE co-creator Danny Strong partners with David Elliot (“Four Brothers”) to tell the emotional story of one woman’s fight for the innocence of others, as well as her own. PROVEN INNOCENT follows an underdog criminal defense firm led by a fierce and uncompromising lawyer, who was wrongfully convicted in a sensational murder case that made her an infamous media obsession, a household name and a national cause célèbre. The drama stars Rachelle Lefevre (“Under the Dome,” “A Gifted Man”), Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier,” “Cheers,” “Boss”), Russell Hornsby (“Seven Seconds,” “Grimm”), Vincent Kartheiser (“Mad Men”), Tony Award winner Nikki M. James (“BrainDead,” “The Good Wife,” “The Book of Mormon”), Riley Smith (“Frequency”) and Clare O’Connor (“Easy”). Adam Armus is an executive producer and showrunner.

 

Airing as a global event on FOX and National Geographic in 172 countries and 43 languages, the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning COSMOS will return for its third installment, beginning Sunday, March 3 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT). It will once again be executive-produced, written and directed by Ann Druyan (NASA’s Voyager Record, “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” “Contact”); executive-produced by Seth MacFarlane, Brannon Braga and Jason Clark; and hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, the famed pop-culture icon and astrophysicist. Continuing the legacy of its predecessors, COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS will translate the revelations of science into a lavishly transporting experience, taking audiences on a series of spiritual voyages of exploration. The new season will reveal previously uncharted realms, including lost worlds and worlds to come, and those that we may one day inhabit in a thrilling future we can still have.
