|Tahar Rahim, Bérénice Bejo and Ali Mosaffa, – The Past|
Last year, Asghar Farhadi’s film A Separation (a huge MoviefiedNYC favorite) won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and was nominated for Best Original Screenplay, and now the director is back with The Past. The film follows an Iranian man (Ali Mosaffa) as he deserts his wife and children to return to his homeland. Meanwhile, his wife (Bérénice Bejo from The Artist) finds love with another man (Tahar Rahim from A Prophet), a reality her husband confronts upon his wife’s request for a divorce. This looks like it’s full of amazing performances and could be another Foreign Language Film winner.
|Keanu Reeves – 47 Ronin|
|Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone – Grudge Match|
Grudge Match stars Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro as two old timer boxers (Rocky and Raging Bull, of course) who end up fighting each other one last time in a grudge match for the title. Grudge Match plays more like a mainstream comedy with supporting actors like Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin knocking out a few jokes throughout.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
|Ben Stiller – The Secret Life of Walter Mitty|
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty looks like what will be a gorgeous, endearing, emotional and visually stunning piece of work. Though it does come across a little sappy, this could be Ben Stiller’s first serious step towards Oscar consideration.
The Wolf of Wall Street MoviefiedNYC’s Most Anticipated
|Leonardo DiCaprio – The Wolf of Wall Street|
Martin Scorsese’s latest film The Wolf of Wall Street stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey. The screenplay is written by Terence Winter (Get Rich or Die Tryin’, Brooklyn Rules, The Sopranos and Boardwalk Empire), based on Jordan Belfort’s book of the same name. New York stockbroker named Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, corporate banking world and mob infiltration. Maybe this will finally get some Oscar love for DiCaprio?
August: Osage County (Limited) MoviefiedNYC’s Most Anticipated
|Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin – Labor Day|
Director Jason Reitman’s (Up in the Air, Thank You for Smoking and Juno) new drama Labor Day, is unlike anything he has done before. With a Christmas Day release this will certainly be an Oscar contender, Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin could both be looking at nominations for their performances. This looks like the quietest and most raw film Reitman has done so far, and show that he’s truly a force to be reckoned with on the big screen.
|Ralph Fiennes and Felicity Jones – The Invisible Woman|
Nelly (Felicity Jones), a happily-married mother and schoolteacher, is haunted by her past. Her memories, take us back in time to follow the story of her relationship with Charles Dickens (Ralph Fiennes also the director) with whom she discovered an exciting but fragile complicity. As Nelly becomes the focus of Dickens’ passion and his muse, for both of them secrecy is the price, and for Nelly a life of invisibility.
